An inquiring friend wants to know what moaning the word ‘ ‘ piny-knacker," as applied to Mr. Daly, can be supposed to have. A “knacker," as de scribed by Webster, is “a maker of knacks, toys, or small work." In another sense, also, a “knack" la “habitual facility of performance, dexterity, adroitness." A “play-knocker" Is one who puts plays together easily by a mechanical process.

A clever bit of Irony, at the expense of politicians who are anxious to act as unpledged delegates to the National Conventions, Is furnished by the Bos ton Traiucript.

Special Dltpatch to The Tribune, New York, May 10.—The Grand Jury, which, as telegraphed you some days since, has been bearing testimony tending to implicate New York liquor-dealers In frauds on the revenue, mode Its presentment to the Court to-day. The result Is that the membersof six leadingwhlsky firms in the city havo been arrested, and war rants are Issued for fifteen others. This move ment on the part of the Government Is the sequel to Assistant District Attorney Slierman’s Investigations in the West and elsewhere, which havo been in progress (or more than a year past. Frauds on the revenue hero have been carried on for three or four years, and have been well known to the authorities in New York, but so strong was the ring in all Us operations that all attempts to . METE OUT JUSTICE TO TUB QUILT* were abandoned. During this tlmo It Is esti mated that from 2,000,000 to 3,000,000 gallons of crooked whisky have been sold la this market. Since the breaking of the Western combination Mr. Sherman has been diligently prosecuting his search for proofs against New York Arms with bettor success. Important witnesses were secured in Western distillers and dealers, and evidence of an overwhelming character has been adduced to show the guilty complicity of many New York houses with the rings in St. Louis, Milwaukee, and elsewhere. The six liquor dealers who were arrested to-day were brought before Commissioner Shields, and admitted to bail In sums varying from SIO,OOO to $20,000. The following are TUB PERSONS ARRESTED! F. O. Boyd and Edgar P. Hill, of the firm of F. O. Boyd & Co., liquor commission merchants; W. S. Miller, of the commission house of Miller & Co.; Edward A. Boury, Sccretoryof the Now York Rectifying Company; J. J. Autiway, rectifier; and William M. Rice, dealer in alcohol. Some of these persons surrendered themselves before the war rants were served. Others were arrested by Deputy Marshals. A considerable portion of the day was consumed In arranging satis factory bail-bonds, bat at lust release was allowed on the following ball: F. O. Boyd, $20,000; Edgar P. Hill, $20.000; J. A. Aatlwuy, 910,000: Edward A. Boury, $10,000; W. S. Mill er, $10,000; and W. M. Rico, SIO,OOO. TUB INDICTMENTS. Boyd la Indicted on twenty-six counts, Hill on sixteen, Boury on twenty-five, Miller on ten, and Autiway on eight. These counts are on almost as many kinds of alleged frauds us those connected with the Western Rings. For tbo most part those arrested declined to make any statement in detail. All asserted that they had only bought whisky which was duly stamped In accordance with the re quirements of law, and HAD NOT INTCNIONALLY VIOLATED ANT LAW. Messrs. Boury and Boyd said that It was proba ble that the whisky received In some instances by these firms hod not paid the proper tax, but they had never bought any which was not stamped, ouu they bad no means of distinguishing between the lawful and crookcdartlcle. If tlicrowas any fraud, it had been perpetrated at tho distil leries In afllxlng the stamps. They claim that the stamp is to be accepted as a guarantee that tuo tax has been paid, and that they are Justified In purchasing In open market any duty stamped goods without inquiring in regard to the legitimate manufacture. All other Indicted firms make lu substance the same statement. The Government olllclola claim to have evidence to show that the New York consignees of the rings lnßt. Louis, Milwaukee, Chicago, and Peoria, RAD DISTINCT UNDERSTANDINGS with the Western distillers as to tho character of their consignments, whereby It was arranged that lota of crooked were to ho distributed through shipments that had paid duty; that such unlawful goods were known In New York by certain distinctive. marks, and were sold by tbo indicted firms with a full knowledge of their fraudulent character. It is charged that a perfect understanding existed between the Now York firms, and that to facilitate their business and avoid suspicion, illicit consignments intended for one firm would be sent to onother. Assistant District-Attorney Sherman said to-day that no caso had been presented U> tho Grand Jury without AMPLE EVIDENCE TO SECURE CONVICTION. lie said thr.t the real root of tho Whisky King was In this city, and that Western manufacturers of Illicit spirits could not have carried on tho business without tho aid of the New York Ring In getting rid of their goods. Ho believed that the real offenders bad been reached. The method by which tho combina tion In this city carried on Its transactions will nut bo fully developed until the trial of the cases now pending, but they are said to have been re duced to > fine system. Among jther facts It will be shown that the New York consignors were accustomed to take idvantsgo of their knowledge of the guilt of Western distillers to UNMBUCIFULLT SHAVE THEM In settling accounts by what Is termed cutting on tho gauge, the Gauger, la collusion with the buyer In New York reporting short measurements, ana the distiller nut daring to complain. Unless some of those dealers against whom Indictments bovo boon found ana who have not been arrested leave tho city, they will proba bly bo brought before tho Commissioner to-mor row. Thu trials of these cases will begin at the Juno term of the United States Circuit Court. MIXjWAUKEE. JONAS, aOLDRBUO, AND CHOSOT. Hfitcfat IHjpaleJl to 77i< Tribune. Milwaukee, May 10.—lu the Jouaa case, this morning, tho prosecution completed tho read ing of the correspondence that hud passed be tween the defendants aud tho Milwaukee men. This concluded tho caso fur tho prosecution. Mr. Munro, of Chicago, then opened for the defense, taking the ground that the emu and substauco of tho terrible tale of conspiracy that had been told amounted to this: that tho defendants bad endeavored to retain Mr. Tret tymuu as their counsel. TUB HtNUSKOt'FS ALWAYS HAD FAITH that the trouble could, at some time or other, bo settled, and, full of this faith, they enter ed luto communication with Goldberg with the view of taking the best steps' that could be devised towards this end, and using the Influence of his friends to effect that pur pose. Goldberg, knowing Jonas, andrcspcctSng his sagacity, talked the matter over with him, and Jonas mentioned the fact to Mr. Shipman, who at once thought of Crosby, au old revenue ofllcer. who might naturally be supposed a man to advise at such a crisis. Crosby was seen, and his advlco was TO QBTAIN ritBTTTUAN, who luul earned signal success m a whisky law* ycr, and when this result was reached the MU waukee men wero advised what to do. tho result being tho meeting In Chicago, at which It was Kronosed to form a defense-fund. He referred > the correspondence that had taken place, os I>ut In evidence by the prosecution, desiring no letter proof than that very testimony of tho purity and uprlghlutaa of the intentions of the defendants. Nowhere In all tho letters and dispatches that hud passed was there a word said about tho burglary of papers. No where sword Indicating that anything of an un lawful character was to no attempted. OX THE CONTtUUT, tho defendants and the whisky mcnconductedtbclr negotiations with the greatest openness, having nothing to conceal. The learned counsel then went on at considerable length and with conspicuous ability to point out the faults and omissions In the testimony, showing how every Important link In the chain of proof of wrong Intent was wanting, but on tho contrary everything that had come to the surface proved their lunoccncu of any desire to do anything Illegal, and pointed to the Irresistible conclusion that the whole scope ond ob ject of tho negotiation was to secure a lull, com plete, and successful legal defense. DISCUSSION OF TUB BVIUBNOQ. la support of this theory, be then went oo to dlscusa tho evidence, to point out omissions, and supply Information on missing points, and then foreshadowed the general character of tho •videoce the defense proposed to ca)L He partic ularly commented on the letter of Aug. Vi, , which letter ha said/ when closely examin'd, THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: THURSDAY, MAY 11, 1876. proves incontestably that tho objects of the differ ent meeting* and consultations was that If they won Id employ i’retlyman ho would be aide to as* certain what tho evidence was, and make a more ■ucccrsfnl defense: that the letter itself speaks of Of.TTINO AN ABSTRACT 07 TUB BVIDBNCR, and not stealing (he papers. lie commented on Umj evidence for the prosecution, showing the con* situations In Chicago, and claimed they pointed to the fact that the money was to he deposited to pay for legal services to be employed, and given up only when the services were shown to have been of advantage: that no conspiracy to steal papers could he believed to exist, for the reason that the wit nesses for the prosecution themselves state It would bo of NO BAIITIII.r BENEFIT TO THEM to have the pnpen: that then are always supposed to act for a purpose; that no subsequent consulta tion* had In Chicago and elsewhere could not and would nut have taken place If the object wn* not t» employ servlet* that would result In compromis ing these case?. lie spoke exhaustively 01 the al leged connection of Hedrick with the matter, allow ing that Crosby alone wan responsible fordoing this, and he was Interested in getting a fee. He nerer heard that there wan any talk about getting papers. Ho afterwards turn Crosby at Pekin and tula him Unit if the Milwaukee whisky men would give him a retainer of SI,OUO he would go to Milwaukee and examine Into their ease and see what kind of a case the Government had against tlieiii. The whole matter was then dropped, lie never heard at any time about stealing paper* from Crosby or any other person; nothing of the kind was ever talked of. BAM RINDSKOPP was then called by the defense, and examined as to the date* and places of the conferences held be tween the Milwaukee men and the defendants. They first saw Mr. Shipman at the interview at the Tremunt House. They were together several hours. Mr. Goldberg spoke of Mr. Shipman, and introduced him, and Mr. Shipman pointed out tho course proposed, namely to em ploy Prettymnn, and the advantage of Hedrick being I’rcUytnon's brother-in-law wan duly set forth. The matter was first proposed before the indictments were drawn, and witness Intended to go Into It alone, but finally thought the others wore to be benefited and ought to share in the expense. Tho understanding wan that this money waste bo given for defending the ease, and that all the knowledge Government had, or Hedrick hud. the whisky-men were to receive. There was nothing said about destroying papers. Abstracts of the evidence and lists of witnesses, etc., for the bene fit of the lawyers, were WHAT TUB* WERE AFTER. Did not remember anything being said about a compromise; but understood the cases were to be settled in some way to them unfamiliar for n given sum of money. The whisky-men bad been accustomed for many years to such settlements. They expected to derlvo an advantage from the re relationship of Hedrick and Prettyraon. The first Interview took place In the latter part of May or beginning of June—before the indictments were found—nmilhe letters put In evidence were on that subject. Witness wrote In behalf of the Milwaukee men, and acted us tbclr active agent In these negotiations. Could not say whether the prosecution wore cognizant of the fact. There never at any time was any proposition, so far ns ho knew or heard of. to steal papers. Witness “Just heard of It by seeing It in TUB BLACKMAILINO SHEET. TUB ‘COMMERCIAL TIMES.’ ’’ The Court desired the witness to quit expressing his personal feelings by using objectionable adjec tives. Mr. Murpuey insinuated that It would be bard, even for tbo acumen of the Court, to llx a limit for witness’ adjectives, and Tbo examination was resumed. The witness first saw the account of the dynamite conspiracy In the Commercial Timet after the arrest of these de fendants. Witness then went on at some length to recapitulate the occurrences of other interviews between the whisky men and defendants, but nothing new was elicited. With regard to the let ter dated Auc. 13, in which it was stated Hedrick was to furnish Government papers, witness DID MOT REMEMBER CONSIDERING IT BUFFI- CIENTLY IMPORTANT to show other whlskyltus. After the Interview be tween parties In Milwaukee which practically end ed negotiations with the Whisky Ring, witness told defendants still to do what they coula for him self and brother. From what Brown, Gov. Ucd drick’s private secretary, told him— Gen. Hedrick (interrupting)— Revenue Agent— not private secretary. Witness (resuming)—He supposed Gen. Hedrick would be of service In the case. There was never any talk about retaining Fulton, of Kentucky, In the whisky cases, except by the witness himself. Fulton is a man of high standing In Kentucky, and was formerly o law-partnerof Bristow. All papers produced were seized BY TUB BALD AMERICAN BAOLB without witness’ consent—tho same eagle that con fiscated bis property, broke up his business, and has him still under nil kinds of Indictments. There never was any agreement to steal public records for $50,000, or any other sum. Ho denied the truth of all the other allegations of tho Indictment. Here u discussion took place on purely legal points, during which tbo hour of adjournment ar rived. CHICAGO. hunk's trial postponed. Upon the opening of the United States Dis trict Court yesterday morning a few dvll mo tions were beard and disposed of, when the panel of the new petit jury was called over, and two Jurors were excused on account of sickness. Tho Court then announced that tticro were only twenty-four jurymen present, not a full panel. He asked tho District Attorney If be was ready to proceed in tho Munn trial, and tho latter re plied that he was. Col. Ingcrsoll then said that up to tho night before they had concluded to ask for a contin uance to tho next term, but had uow resolved to be ready for trial in a day or two. He made tho request for a postponement in good faith, and only wanted a few days, at which Umo no further delay would be asked for. The District Attorney wanted to know how long a postponement Col. Ingcrsoll would want, and tho latter aald he thought till about Monday would do. The District Attorney said ho did not want to bo exacting, hut be thought tho case should not ho put oil no long. Wirt Dexter thought tho delay asked for was too long. The Government had expected to try (his case first, and It ought not to ho delayed fur the length of time asked. Thu Court observed that the Jury were present and everything ready on tho Government side for trial, yet ho could conceive that counsel were tho best Judges of tho extent of their preparations. Tie thought Fri day morning would bu tho latest date to which he could put off the trial, at which time bo hoped them would he no further postponement. Col. Ingersull said that if his Honor would fix upon Monday he would bo perfectly satisfied, to which Judge Blodgett observed that ho had no doubt of it, but that the other sldu objected, and that they must have some show. Judge Bangs then announced that there would probably bu a counterfeiting case ready by o'clock, and after this annoancemeut tho court ad journed until that hour. MISCEI/LANEOUS. U’KBB AND UAQUIKB. sr. Loots, May 10.—TIio stay of czecatlon for two weeks granted by Judge Dillon in the McKee and Maguire cases having expired to* day, a motion was roado in the Unit* ed States Circuit Court this after* noon for another stay for uuo week until certain papers now before the Deportment can be examined. After some discussion, the story was granted by Judge Treat, who, however, required McKee to give an additional bond of $25, • 000, and McGuire S~O, 000. Mr. McKee retnrned from Washington this after noon, and his counsel stated In court that there was a reasonable prospect that bis sentence would bo commuted. CASUALTIES. TRUANT LOOS.

Mayor Hoyne Will Attend To-Day’s Council Meet ing—A Proposition for Peace. TUo Bankers Pronounce Them selves on the Side of Law and Order. YESTERDAY’S DOINGS, AT THE CITT-UALL. In anticipation of witnessing a sensation, a large number of people, politicians and laymen, visited the City-Hall yesterday. The stream of visitors was continuous. It was expected that ft formal demand would be made by the Hon. Tboamos Hoyne, the legally elected Mayor, upon Mr. Colvin to step down and out of the Mayoral office, and relegate himself to the purlieus of the express office on Washington street. Among the early visitors were Hildreth, Ryan, White, Cameron, Jamieson, Btaut, Lengaeber, Corco ran, and others, who were some time ago known to fame, hut are now burled In political graves. They came to condole with Harvey the First, and suggest plans and devices whereby lie might bo enabled to defeat tbc will of thcpcople and defy decency. About 10 o’clock the soi-dlsant Mayor tapped gently on tho dour of the Mayoral den, in which were secreted two or three of his henchmen, who had slept there all night, fearful that an attempt might be made by some of tho sup porters of the legal Mayor to obtain possession. But nothing of the kind was attempted. The door was opened In response to the tapping, and the ponderous form of the claimant stalked Into the cx-Atdennanie lounging place. Egbert Jamieson accompanied him. Tho twain picked up u bundle of tlie proclamations addressed to the beads of the different departments, warn- Ing.tlicm not to obev tho orders of tbc new Council nor recognize Mr. Moyne us Mayor. These they look nrountlanddlelrlbutcd. TUB ONB RBCEIVBD DV CASPAR BUTE, the new City Clerk, warned blm not to recognize Mr. Hoyiic, on the penalty of Instant dismissal. Mr. Butz, on reading the communication, burst out in a loud inugb. The Idea of Colvin bouncing blm, who had been ducted by tba people, was 100 much. It developed a muss of cheek of which an Insurance agent or u bummer Alderman might be proud. "Dismiss me I” said Blitz: "that is rich ness. ” Later In the day Hildreth's dupe discovered his mistake and sent around his private secretary, the Jolly Cleveland, to apologize and beg permis sion to run bis pen through the offensive words. Butz good-naturedly granted the request, and the letter was amended by the addition of a long black stroke, resembling a railroad tine on u county map. SIGNING SALOON LICENSES. City Clerk Butz showed up early and went to work filling up saloon and other licenses. He was soon joined by Mayor Hoyne, who temporarily In stalled himself behind a desk in the Committee room adjoining tbc City Clerk's olllcc, and pro ceeded to attach his official signature to the licenses which bad been made out. Tno news soon reached Harvey, and he at once determined to cry check if possible. The services of Charley Cameron were called Into requisition, and In the course of ten or fifteen minutes the following prununclamcnto— that is the word for revolutionary proclamations— was drawn up and given to the afternoon papers for publication: PROCLAMATION. Match’s Orncß, Chicago, May 10, 1870. Wuskeab, Odo Thomas lioyne.

All persons assuming or pretending to act or do business under or by virtue of any such documents will bo arrested and prosecuted under tbc law. 11. 1). Colvin, Mayor. Meanwhile City Clerk Hut?, had caused to be made out a number of certified copies of the reso lution passed by the Council Tuesday afternoon calling upon ail Deads of departments to recognize □o Mayor but'Mr. Iloyno, These were placed In envelopes, addressed, uud delivered by Messenger MeGurren. Tho Usurper then made ANOTHER MOVE, on the municipal chess-board. tie tent word to the City Collector uot to Issue any receipts for licensor until further ordered. Subsequently, as curtaining that this action was blocking the wheels of business ami Inconveniencing the public, he countermanded the order, and told the City Collector to give receipts, erasing the order therein instructing the holder to exchange the same for a license at tho City Clerk’s olilcc. Colvin at the same time stated that be would order his police to recognize the receipts os bona lido licenses. On tills basis some eight or ten were Issued during the afternoon. BBRGEANT-AT-AUM3.

William James Messenger, vice McUurren, relieved from duty, 110 will be inducted into office this morning, and, in ac cordance with a resolution niloptod Monday, ados Bcrgeant-at-Arms of the Council this afternoon. As ttergeant-at-Anua, ho will be empowered to call for all assistance necessary to preserve order in tbe Council Chamber during meetings of the City Leg islature. About noon all tbo parlies to tho controversy abandoned the City>llall for lunch, and for un hour or more there wasubsoluldy nothing doing. People came, made Inquiries os to the situation, and, find lug that ovcrythlngwas quiet, took their departure. There were, nowever, largo groups of Idlers scat tered here and there on the sidewalk surrounding the building. About 2 o'clock MIC UOYNB RETURNED, and proceeded with rapid stride to the office of City-Attorney Tnlhlll. which bo entered. A brief conference took place between tho two gentlemen; the door was opened, and the twain proceeded to the office occupied by Colvin. A buny policeman had been placed on guard on tbe outside, osten sibly to keep the great unwashed from crowding Into the sanctnm. The door was locked. Mr. Tulnill knocked, and, like tho door men tioned In the Scripture, It was opened unto him. Mr. Colvin was nut in. lie had Just gone out, and nobody knew when he would return. Mr. Iloyne came to make a formal demand for the official possession of the Mayoral desk and the poorly executed portrait of Washington which surmounts it. As Mr. Colvin was not on band, no one was authorized (u surrender the plunder, and the two gentlemen withdrew, Mr. Tuthill to his little seven by nine den, and Mr. Iloyne to the City Clerk’s office, where, in the committee room, be was joined by City-Clerk UnU and Aid. Cullertun and Sheridan, and half a dozen reporters. The party dis cussed tho situation in a general way for upwards of an hour. About 4 o’clock, the party broke up, and Mayor Uoyoe and Clerk llutz took their do pariurc. A CAUCUS. Haring this time a crowd of the Colvlnlan sup porters had gathered lu the usurper's room. There wero James I*. Hoot, Kgbcrl Jamieson, w. C. Goudy, Tom Stout, Frank Warren, Clark Lipo, John Corcoran, and others. The first three got Into a corner and put their heads together. They had read the decision of Jndgo Furwell on the ap plication of Edward Phillips for an injunction against Assessor Gray. From It they learned that it would bo useless for Colvin to apply for an in junction agalust Mayor Hoytic, andsotheyresalved to abandon that scheme. Occasionally one of the Colvlnlan henchmen would button-bole oue of the Connell and whisper knowingly to him. Then ensued what is commonly known as "car-show lug.” and thus the afternoon was whiled awur, all parties wondering where Colvin was, and why he did not return. About U o'clock he pul in an ap pearance, ond a conference of about an hours duration was Indulged in. The Interested indi viduals refused to divulge what conclusion they had come to, or what they intended doing to-day. Han O’Hara is still absent from tbe city, Wash ington being bis abiding place when lost beard from, though it was staled that he was probably in Philadelphia yesterday, attending the Centennial ceremonies. Treasurer-elect ilrlggs has not yet taken hi* oath of otfice, neither has be presented his otllclal bond. It is not likely that he will as sume the duties of UlsolUce until after Treasurer OTlura’s return. It is learned from u most reliable source that Mr. It rings has decided nut to recognise Colvin as Mayor, inasmuch as two-thirds of tbs Council have declared that he is not the Mayor, but that Mr. Huyue Is. Uouce he con only recog nise thu Utter. CITV CBHTIVICATB9. Mr. Colvlu signed about gioo, 000 In new certifi cates Tuesday night. Comptroller Hayes says he submitted a largo number for Colvin's signature several days ago. They are to take up old Indebt edness. No certificates will bo Issued (or accruing Indebtedness until the war Is settled. As to the legality of the signatures, the Comptroller says Mayor Hoyne agreed to allow Colvlu to sign any thing necessary to prevent complications, but per haps Mayor Hoyura consent will not legalise the mtfflcale, and the remit, "Nebif; city in (he hole.” There I* a strong possibility that the Connell will take the police nr the neck, if there in any in* terference to-dnv. There is a proposition to die* band the force If they attempt to sustain Colvin, and then appoint a new force to be relied opon. This may result In some days of no policemen, hut ■pedals can bo sworn in to protect tho city In the meantime. It was stated last evening by several of Colvin's supporters that should Mr. Moyne attempt to take his seat this afternoon as the presiding officer of the Council. Colvin wIU order him to desist,• and should he refuse, the police will bo called on to ar rest him: and also the Scrgcont-at*Arms and all others who may Interfere. HEADS OF DEPAIITMENTS. TUB CITT ATTOUKBY. A TumcNß reporter took another walk among tho heads of departments yesterday to ascertain under which banner they proposed to fight. City-Attorney Tuthlli could not recognize Colvin, as he wus no longer Mayor. The legal Chief Magistrate Is Mr. Hoyne, and to him only would the Legal Department give allegiance. Deputy City-Treasurer Brenan thought It made no difference to his Department. He would pay money on all checks regularly drawn through the Comptroller’s Department. City-Collector Von Hollen was for Colvin, first, last, and (or all time, lie could recognize no one else as Mayor. rnEstUB.NT puinditillb, of the Board of Public Works, has received no official notice on the subject. It made no dif ference who was Mayor, os no contracts would be let this season. As far as paying the employes of the Board la concerned, It mutters not who is Mayor, to lung as they get their money. CITY MARSHALL OOODELfi. was Interviewed during the day by Perry 11. Smith and J. It Doolittle, Jr., who reasoned with him on the folly of his manipulating the police force In the Interest of the naarper. to a Tuuiukb re porter be stated late In the afternoon that he re ceived the City Council order, and the Mayor's note. Fot£the time being he was recognizing Colvin on Mayor, but bis opinion might change to-day. Me was doing business subject to fluctuations In thu market, os the wholesale grocers would say. Ho hoped, however, that the police would not Iw drawn Into the matter. They had enough tu do ut the present in preserving the peace In tho lumber and orickmakiag districts, uud ho wanted no riots down town. Plftß-MAIISIIAL DBNNBR said that If there was a Arc he would try to have It put out, no matter who was Mayor. During the Earl year be had received hut one order from Mayor olvfn, and be did not think that there would be any necessity for either of the Mayors to make any demands upon him so as to Implicate his depart* ment In the squabble. As to the possibility of his being called upon to use the firemen for policemen, be was not prepared to express an opinion. To ascertain the situation as regarded TUB UOAUD OF EDUCATION a reporter yesterday called on Mr. John C. Rich berg, President of that body, and propounded a series of questions, which were Ingeniously enough parried by the President. The actual Information obtained may be summed up as follows: Mr. itlcbberg had received as President of tbs Board copies of the documents Issued by the Coun cil and Mr. Colvin: be had not taken any action anent them and didn’t propose to at present: they would be laid before the Board at Its regular meet* Ing Friday evening and then some expression would probably be had; Mr. Illchbcrz did not know what tno members of the Board thought on the subject or how they would vote; be bad not con* versed with them on the subject; as far us he him self was concerned he bad mode It a principle not to announce beforehand what would ue the dispo sition of any matter to be considered by the Board. As farss the Board of Education wua con* cemed, Its routine business did not call on it to know any Mayor at all; its business was done with the City Couucll, and Us communications were sent to the City Clerk for that body; all other busi ness was done with the City Treasurer, on whom the Board drew warrants; it was quite possible fur the Board to carry on Us routine business for some time without knowing who was Mayor; It was a separate branch of tno City Government, consti tuted by act of Legislature, and nut dependent on either the new or old charters for Us powers. A further attempt to cross-examine the cross examiner was mure or less unsuccessful, and the reporter departed, convinced that Mr. Rlchberg would vote one way or the other when the case came up, hat that bo did not mean to be prema ture la Indicating which way bis vote would be cast. MAYOR HOYNE. 11E WILL PRESIDE. Whatever may he done In this perplexing mat ter of the Mayorolty, it is evident that the peace party Is the one which backs Thomas Hoyne, while the revolutionary parly adheres to the falling fortunes of 11. D. Colvin. This was clear from the proceedings of the lost two Council meetings, and the statement of Mr. Hoyne to a Tribune reporter yesterday only confirms the truth of the assertion. He said that the honor of the city must not be degraded by the com mission of any violence. He was already in possession of the City Clerk’s office, and the City Clerk and the City At torney would certainly act with him. It was hts Intention to sec how far tha Police and the Board cf Public Works were going to act with him. He was doing everything he could, in a personal way, with a view to bringlug tilings around without any personal violence, or a personal struggle, a riot, or a rencounter in the City Council, Mr. Colvin probably would in trude himself upon the Council at their meet ing to-day. and tbc Council ought to be pro tected by the police against any such intrusion, for they hod recognized another presiding offi cer anathe new Mayor was a member of the Council by authority of his election. Mr. Hoyne said he should go to the Council meeting to-day. Mr. Colvin might call on tbc police to arrest him, hut ho thought the police would obey a two-thirds majority of the City Council, and tbe majority was already pronounced in favor of the newly elected Mayor. IN REFBRBNCB TO COLVIN’S PROPOSITION to submit the ease to the Courts, Mr. Iloync said that if be was in earnest about this tiling, and tho matter should be submitted so tbat the rights of both sides should be properly presented with the real questions at issue, he did not tnlnk there would be any difficulty or any objection to going Into the Courts. Mr. IToyno did not osc ertaln the position of tbo Police Department or the Hoard of Public Works, however, being busily occupied with other matters at the City Clerk's, ana at bis own, office. In the afternoon be was olowted in bis private office for some time with Comptroller Hays. The result of the Confer* ence was to settle Mr. Iloyne in tho belief that the matter could be disposed of In some wav that would prove satisfactory to both sides. Mr. I'iuyes, as the financial man of the city, was anxious to preserve harmony hero, and maintain the honor and credit of the city at all hazards. To this cud ho thought be had a plan for the amicable settle* ment of the difficulty. Tho conference was not conclusive, but merely paved the way for others or a like nature, the Comptroller reserving the particulars of his plan until more As Mr. Iloyne understood (lie matter, however, it proposed some concessions on both sides, but what they were be wos unable to state tor tho reason that he did not know himself. Exactly what the next move may be It is difficult to foretell, bat It Is clear that the peace policy is to be tried until it shall have proved either a success or a failure. Is the latter case it is still more dlffi* cult to predict Just what will take place, although It is quite safe to assume that the two-thirds ma jority is the Council will maintain the position they Lave already taken, whether the result he peace or war. AN AGREED CASS. There has been some talk about submitting on agreed cose to the Supreme or Circuit Court, but so far it boa taken no definite ibajiu. It li pos sible that aa agreed cave before the Su preme Court might again result in a tie. Hence whatever 1$ dune, nu proposition to submit the question to the Supreme Court would be accepted by the friends of Mayor lloytic. The war in which the matter might arise would be in a suit brought against the City Treasurer by the bolder of a war rant signed by Colvin fur a writ of mandamus to compel the payment of the warrant. Such a suit would test thsqoMtlonof the Mayoralty, and If thu adherents of Mr, Colvin should propose to submit an agreed case on it to either the Superior or Clr cnit Court, It is not improbable tbit the friends of Mayor lloyue would unite with that gentleman uuu agrea to the proposal. In this cose the bolder of the warrant would be the plaintiff and the City Treasurer the defendant, it being understood aua agreed that the result would determine the right of Mr. Uoyne to the Mayoralty or the right of Mr. Colvin to holdover uutil April. 1877. As before stated, this has almply been talked of and no actual proposition to this effect has tsen made, in view of Comptroller Hayes' call on Mayor Hoyne yesterday, it may not be Improbable tbst this Is the plan that gentleman had in view. Whether it was or was not, a few days at least will determine. WHAT THE BANKERS SAY, SB.N. lUUUONI), A Tbibdns reporter visited various banks yes terday to learu thu views of their officers ou the crisis and Its effect ou the city credit. Gen. Hammond, of tbe City (Savings Bank, says his preference is for Mayor Hoyne. As lung as there is an unsettled condition of affairs in the City Government, it will he financially dis astrous to tbe city. There will bo dltlkulty in raising money from taxation or on credit. The City Bank does not deal lu tbe city secu rities, except on orders from customers, but Geu. Hammond tlduks the value of the securities will bo affected unfavorably as long as there is any conflict. As for Colvin, the Gen eral thinks bu term has expired, and Is strongly in favor of Mayor Hoyue's assuming the func tions of the oiUce. because he was unanimously elected, and it will not do to disregard such an expression of public upiulou. MB. W. J. UALLBB, Cashier of the German American Savings, is in favor of Colvin, as he thluks the election of k Uoyue was illegal. He thinks Colvin and Haves have Improved tlic credit of the city, which might ptnalhly be Impaired by the Installation of Mr. Horne. As to the people who Voted lor Mr. Hoyne, Mr. Haller thinks they didn't know they wore voting for a Mayor, no man was pat tip In opposition to him. The city certificate* have told well nnder Colvin, inrt Mr. Itallcr thinks be should remain In ofllce. The bank will take the certificates or. bonds of the city omlcr (Jolvln'i Administration, hut Mr. Haller can't at present say If the bank would continue tuch a course under Mr. Hoyne. a A. IVB9, Cashier of the Union National, says he ha« not heard of any offering of securities, and cannot say from hl> present Information what the effect of the conflict will he. As to whether Mayor Hoyne or Colvin Is entitled to the scat he thinks la a ques tion for the Courts, bat he thinks, In the limit of the great repression of nubile opinion, Colvin ought to vacate. He says he baa formed no opin ion on the subject of the city'* credit abroad, and prefers to await developments. Mil. W. I.UMNOTON, President of the Fifth National, who is a neighbor of Mr. Colvin, says he thinks It very unfortunate that he don t step out. Tho expression of the Hie Is that they don't want him. and be ought to :atc. As to the effect on securities, the bank does not deal In them, and Mr. Codington bos nut formed any oplnon upon the subject. MB. JOBHC. BAINES, President of tho Fidelity Savings, has been absent for two months, and has Just returned to the city, and has not been fully posted as to the proceedings, but he thinks the present aspect decidedly had for the credit of the city, we now have two men claiming the same oflicc, and the conflict of author ity will militate against the Sasue of anyobllgatlons that moneyed men would take. lie deems it de sirable to ave the Question settled as soon ns pos sible. He thinks that the fraudulent manner In which the charter of 1872 was farced upon the city has led to all the difficulty, and he baa sill] strong hopes that the’courts may decide the passage of that clwrtcr null aud void. MB. OROROB BTUBOB9, President of the Northwestern National, thinks If the Council, with its present views, think it best, they can raise all the money they want, because they have tho confidence or the people. Colvin should get out or bo Ignored, and Hoyne put in his place without delay. The majority of the Council, composed as It Is, should not recognize as a valuable element the persons who have placed themselves on record as sustaining Colvin In his usurpation. In other words, Colvin must submit to tho czprcnscd will of the people, withdraw from this disgraceful contest, amt allow the Government of the city to go on peaceably. If that respected majority of tho Council who represent the people want anything, they can get It. The credit of this city bos Improved wonder fully already under tho new Council, and ita de termined uctlon, and he believes that the gcnontl value of all property, particularly of taxable real and personal estate, in Chicago has appre ciated from 20 to 25 percent since the action of the South Town Bonn! in bouncing Phillips,Evana, and tiie rest of the bummers. Id all probability bankers abroad will wait for developments before purchasing our securities, because they do not now appreciate the value of the late reform aa Chicago docs. The general feel* log appears to be that all merchants, manufac turers, business-men, and ail persons engaged In enterprises of value, have begun to take heart and courage, nod are full of hope for the future. MU. ByL A. SMITH, of the Merchants’Loan nnd Trust Company, Is of the opinion that tbc trouble will make but little difference In the credit of the city. Tbc Council have declared Mr. Hoync Mayor, and he should be eo recognized, and that settles the whole difficulty. MU. NICKERSON, President of the First National Bank, says that until the .matter Is settled the certificates will nut be negotiable for money, though parties having claims against the city may take them in payment and sell them for the bent prices they can get. The credit of the city will neces sarily suffer until the difficulty la arranged. MB. J. IUVINO PEARCE, of the Third National, says the city Is In a muddle lust now, and until matters ore settled nothlug can be done. His opinion Is that the voices of fkl. 000 voters should have some weight, and they say Mr. Hoync is entitled to the offlco of Mayor. At presentstbe city securities must be a drug on the market, and will remain so until there Is some definite adjustment of the contest Mr. Pearce also disclaims an/ personal feeling antagonistic to Mr. Colvin, but he thinks Colvin should respect the expressed wishes of the people, and not throw obstacles in the way of tbe city’s advantage. UR. JOSEPH BUTTER, President of the Traders', says ns long as there Is a conflict of authority there can bo no question that damage will accrue to the city credit There will be no one authorized to sign certificates, and If they are signed by Colvin there will be a question as to their legality, lie docs not think the City Treasurer would be justified In tak ing tbe responsibility uf paying out much money for which he is liable until fav knows who Las a right to sign warrants. 11c cannot take orders from two different people. Mr. Huttcr dues not think that either Mayor Uoyne or Colvin is desirous of doing anything to prejudice tbe Interests of the city. If Colvin has proper legal advice that he is entitled to the office It is his duty to hold on un til tbe Court decides who Is entitled to It.
