THE mayoralty. Its Situation at the City-Hall Be plains Unchanged, Sayor Hoyne Calls on the Officers to Show Their Hands. Repeated Conferences Which Result in Nothing. Mr, Colvin Will Not Accede to the W ' propositions of the Ma jority. flje Colvinists Dramming Up gympatliy on the North Side. A Model Speech and Some Choice Ehet oric from the Great Usurper. flree German Aldermen of the North Side Denounced by a Crowd of Bummers. XT! THE CITY-UADI,. QUIET. The audience around the City-Hall yesterday was bardlv up to grade in number. It be tokened a idling off in the popular interest in the farce now being presented by the Cohin- Hfldreth combination, and indicated that the waning popularity of the actors was tho result of otter lack of merit. The day itself was a wait between the acts,—the twenty minutes given to the young man who would go out after wfice. Thus looked at it was a success, for from 9a.rn.104p. m. the throng; of disap pointed sightrseers crossed and recrossed Ad ams street, coming back each time moistcr than thev went Interest or event there was none, when one had gone into Colvin’s rooms and looked at his craptv chair he began to give up hope of a row; and when he came backfrora seeing Mayor Doyne chatting glibly in his domain, he was struck with despair of s sensation, and generally went flwayhome. Even the armed authority at the ei-Mayor’s door was gone, and the Council Chamber entrance no longer furnished an excuse for police lounging. There was only one active to connection with the whole Mavor busi ness and that was the reporter,—-especially him of the evening paper who went about making notes in a desultory and furtive manner, A contemplative gentleman who marked his con clusions on a blank wall while resting, showed the writerallst of twenty-six names of reporters who had, he said, already asked him after the news. THE EX-MAYOR'S QUARTERS were mainly deserted during the morning, and the bis man who pretended to have a right to them "was mainly on the move. He spent an hour or more in the Comptroller’s room con snltimr over the troubles of his hold-over brother, the Collector, and then put in a good deal of time with his lawyers until, after the common dinner-hour, Phil Conley came In and made a liquid suggestion that carried the ex- Uavor away with mm like a shot. The populous pan of the building was TUB CITY CLERK’S OFFICE and the committee-room at the back thereof. Here were gathered a large number of the par ticipants in the matter of the Mayoralty, and constant coming and going kept a comfortable crowd always on hand. After about 10 o’clock, the hour at which the Mayor came down, he was constantly besieged with talk, and good advice poured down upon him in basketfuls. • But all these things moved him not, and be sat through It all nobly. If there over was a happy man in the world, that man was Mark Sheridan. He was entirely in his clement, though fading a little at the Idea that perhaps there might not be any fight after all,—a consummation devoutly prayed against by the pugnacious soul of Colvin’s most unrelent ing foe. Frequent deep consultations' took place between the gentlemen present, and, though they could not impart the result at once, thev promised that after aUttle something should he given out that would have an effect on the general subject. After much waiting about, the press was put in possession of THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENT: Mayor's Office, Chicago, May 12.—Dear Sir: I am informed by the City Clerk that you have been furnished with a copy of tho reaolntions of the City Connell adopted on the 9lh inst., declar ing that I have been duly elected and qualified Mayor of the City of Chicago, and requiring the various departments ol the City Government to recognize me as Mayor. >'o reply having been received from yon. I here by respectfully request of you an immediate an ewer, expressly consenting or declining to comply with said resolution of the City Council. 1 am, lirs, yours, etc., Thomas Eotnb, Mayor. Copies of this letter were sent to all the heads of Departments, and of course replies were ex fiectco, but, owing to the late hour at which the etters were sent out, no answers were received. After thinking the matter over, It did not ap pear likely that this letter would really affect matters much, because of the peculiar flexibility of the English language,which enables an acute office-holder to reply to a letter and spread him self all over a subject without saying anything about it or answering any question. To test THE FEELING OF THE PARTIES ADDRESSED, t reporter marched around into the Comp trollers office and sought to get slr. Hayes’ opinion on the subject That officer took a new lead out of the difficulty brought np bv the letter, and said, in effect, that he should not answer it at all. He was, he said, in the habit of meeting 3lr. Hoyne frequently, and, if that gentleman had any communlration to make, he ipuld easily do so by word of mouth. City-Attorney Tuthill, on being asked if he had been presented with a copy of the letter, *aid he had not, and, further, that he did not much expect to be. His sentiments were so well known that it would hardly be worth while to ask him to write them out. BOARD OP PUBLIC WORKS. An hour or so after the Mayor’s circular note to the various heads of departments had been delivered, Mr. Alexander Sullivan, Secretary of the Board of Public Works, appeared in the little back room of the City Clerk’s office, where in Mayor Hoyne makes his headquarters, and Informed him that a meeting of the Board of Public Works would be held to-day, when his Bote would be considered and an answer re turned. : the cnr mabshal. A reporter asked Marshal Goodcll yesterday U he had received the Mayor’s letter. “Yes” said Mr. Goodell. Have you made an answer yett” asked the news-man. Alter the Marshal bad answered in the nega tive and he had been asked what his answer would be, he said, l * I shan’t tell you.” He then entered a complaint in the ear of the reporter that be did not want to be interviewed; in fact, he would not be. It would be time enough for him to answer to-day. He could not sec anyway why such a question should be asked. If the departments were going on all right why not let them alone, and so forth, and so forth. The reporter made up his mind that the ilarshal did not want to say anything that Would throw any light on the subject. THE OBJECT OF THE LETTER, which does not clearly appear on its face, is found in that act of the Legislature known as the Mayor’s bill, which gives the Mayor of a Qty power to remove an appointive officer sub ject to a concurrence in ms act by two-thirds of the City Council. The bearing of this act on the present situation is clear to the most casual observer. If Mayor Hoyue demands the obe dience of the Comptroller, for Instance, and that officer refuses to obey, it forms sufficient ground for his removal, and his case then goes to the Council- In the present temper of that body it would be too much for any officer to hope that he could count on two-thirds of its mem bership to back him in a refusal to obey the only Mayor whom they recognize. It is another turn of the screw which will force Colvin out of the scat to which he hangs on with more force reason. THE WHOLE TORE of yesterday’s proceedings was pacificatory rather than warlike, and the most stren uous efforts of at least one party were directed toward a resort to the ctfurta rather than to arms. By a sort of mutual con sent, hostilities were held over for the day In the hope that the usurper would eventually see his way dear to obev the people’s will and stand down. During Die morning Mr. Hoyne, in conversation on the matter, said that he had been considering the subjeot of letting the question come before a court for settlement, *as willing todoso&nd'&hidd by the rewlS^ bat still no agreement to that end bad up to that time been reached. ■ • TIRING THE PUBLIC HEART. ALD. BAUMGARTEN. Exasperated by the Mure of all his past efforts to wean over to his side the German vote, Mayor Colvin has become desperate, and is at present circulating base lies, calculated to further his baser ends. The cue to somo of these prevarications was given him by the con duct of certain candidates for Alderman at the recent election, who, for the purpose of gaining the honest German vote, circulated rumors that the “tempercnzlers” were trying to secure a majority in the Common ConndL Colvin and his most unprincipled henchmen proved apt pupils at this new dodge, and have ever since been busy playing It on their follow ers. The accession oi a new Council, a majority of whom were opposed to everything hearing the official name or Colvin, aggravated them li£ to a distemper, and now they are all running mad, foaming at the mouth, and spreading their falsehoods in whatever districts they think the most apt to believe them. The new Alderman, John Baumgarten, from the Fourteenth Ward, was supposed to be friendly to the Colvin clique, until he proved to be altogether a different kind of a man. But Mr. Baumgarten was nominated and elected upon a Republican ticket with “Reform” as Its motto,—a word which meant all that could be inimical to Colvin’s crew,—and Mr. Baumgarten courageously stuck to his colors. The Republican voters under stood his principles and voted for him, and, further than that, elected him, much to the discomfort of the Democrats. Instigated by Colvin and his henchmen, these soreheads got up a meeting Thursday evening at No. 274-6 Milwaukee avenue, after first calling upon Mr. Baumgarten and demanding him to swerve around to the Colvin side. At this meeting a pompous little fellow named AJd. Rvan played a very prominent part, ns did also Fred Maas, a defeated candidate for Town Collector at the last town election. After the meeting was over they visited Mr. Baumgartcn’s residence, and, not finding him at home, saluted his family with cat-calls and all sorts of infernal music. An other meeting will lie held at the same place this evening, providing the police do not stop the affair. It is needless to add that such demonstrations as these on the part of the saloon-keepers and lowest vagabonds in his ward but strengthen him in his position, and cause him to fight the would-be political boss who prompts these out rages with all the more vigor. HILDRETH AT WORK. Colvin’s champion in the Council, Aid. Hil dreth, endeavored to make arrangements for the holding of a meeting in his master’s inter est, in West Twelfth Street Turner Hall, last evening, but had not shown up last night to en gage the hall as it was understood he would, fco it is quite Ukclv that, finding a failure prob able, he nas abandoned the undertaking. COIiTTX’S MASS-MEETDTG. ATTEMPT TO TERRORIZE ALDERMEN. Thera was a 'meeting at .'Miller’s Hall, corner of Sedgwick street and North avenue, last even ing. The object of the meeting was to fan the dying flame of Colvinism on the North Side, and to resolute against the course pursued by Aid. Llnsenbarth, Waldo, and Boser. As a col lection of ignorant, bigoted, prejudiced par tisans, led by designing-and unscrupulous men, the meeting was a success, if mere noise and the display of passion are to he taken as. evidence. On the platform was seated the grand lumi nary, H. D. Colvin, while there moved about him a circle of choice satellites, lit men in every respect to constitute his body-guard. Charley Cameron and Joe Forrest accompanied Colvin to the meeting, and when they arrived they were welcomed by such blatant blather skites as Aid. White and ex-Ald. Schaffner, The croud cheered vociferously at signals from a German leader on the stage. When his hand went up the cheers ascended from the coarse, unkempt crowd ;when It went down,the cheering ceased. It was very well regulated, and not once during the whole evening did an appeal to the worst prejudices of the audience escape the speakers which was not noticed by this obliging performer on the platform who maiimlatca the crowd accordingly. The meeting was called to order at 8:40, and George F. Zcrngibel called upon to preside. Charley Cameron was invited to lead oil. He arose and smilingly came to the front. He said they had met as free Americans, representing law and order and recognizing Government. They were present to protest against the revo lutionary actions of certain factions determined to overthrow the City Government, They were present to uphold and maintain law, and to pro test against violence and mob-law. They were present to denounce traitors, be they Alder men or others. Colvin’s Government, ho said, was the Government instituted by law. Colvin was the only man who was legally Mayor. [Cheers.] If bis had been a bad Gov ernment, and if ne had been a bad Mayor, why didn’t his accusers specify their charges, and not come out in a general way ? Because, he maintained, they could not truthfully do so. He had put such honorable and tried men in poweras Louis Wahl, Prindiville, Dixon, Hickey, Goodell. What was the matter with them 1 Nothing. Why had Mayor Colvin been attacked ? Because he would not throw himself into the bosoms of the SILK-STOCKDiG ARISTOCRACY, who had complained to him of the low saloons, and wanted them replaced by beer-palaccs. Col vin had indignantly spurned the demand. The silk-stockings would prohibit men from drinking beer on Sundays and establish a sys tem of police espionage over their houses. Colvin had said that he knew neither poor nor rich, and for this the row had been kicked up. It was a war not by the poor against the rich, but by the rich against the poor. The property owners were determined to rule, ana ho was present to protest against it as oligarchical. Would they stand this! [Cries of “No. ”] Charley next went into a tedions history of the charter of 1872, and the succeeding trouble connected with the Mayoral question, paying considerable attention to the press whose,attacka on poor Harvey and his course he stigmatized as everything that was bad. He charged Mr. Hoyne ‘with having once signed a statement to the effect that the new charter would have a tendenev to continue Colvin in power until April, 1877. What had converted liiml It had been charged that the new charter was carried by ballot-box stuffing, but, cowardly as the pa pers were, cruel as they were, and vindictive as thev were, thev had not dared to accuse Harvey D. Colvin of any participation, silent or active, in this ballot-box stuffing. Tho people were in this position: they had appealed from the de cision of the Supreme Court to the meeting at Exposition Halt He had heard such Generals In buckram as Leonard Swett, Wirt Dexter, and Elliott Anthony talk about being ready to shoulder muskets, and ho, Charley, had inti mated to them that about fifteen years ago would have been a very appropriate time to shoulder muskets, but they aian’t do any such thing. The history of the petition for a man damus before the Supreme Court was discussed, and the Hovne men denounced for acting in op position to Its decision. These men had not paid their taxes from 3569 down to April 1, 1876. They amounted to something over $8,000,000. WHO PAH) THE TAXES, AKTHOW? The poor men, and yet these silk-stockings had bad the impudence to assert that they owned and carrica on the city. The poor had been called tax-eaters. He would call the silk-stock ings tax-fighters, law-breakers, denouncers of the Supreme Court’s decisions, the men who had trampled law under foot. They were out side the pale of law. Tho poor were entrenched within the battlement Let them attack. Charley roused the prejudices of his hearers by raking up the matter of the paving of Wa bash avenue. According to Charley’s account, such men as John V, Farwell, Judge Skinner, and others, had fought the matter, and saddled the expense on the people of Sedgwick street, at which explanation the audience howled. The remainder of Charley’s oration was of a piece of the foregoing. It In dulged in reckless statements calcu lated to excite tho prejudice of . the poor idiots before him against the men whom ne loved to designate as the silk-stockings of Michigan, Calumet, and Prairie avenues. In winding up he spoke of what he termed the treachery of Aid. Linsenbarth. He asserted that before he was elected, ho would support the party of law and order, and would vote for Col vin, and now he had gone clean back on him It was too bad. McCrea, Throop, Aldrich, and the rest of them, belonged to toe Puritanical Know-Nothing power, and among the first acta they would do would be to close tho saloons on Sunday, to prohibit the Germans from going in to the fields on Sunday, and to close their houses at U o’clock at night, as in the day* of Washburn. „, . „ . _ Having exhausted himself, Charley read asc lection of editorials from certain papers dis countenancing the excess of foreign immigr a tion. It was not appropriate, but in that lay it fhwrm It served to inflame the minds of th audience, and therefore accomplished its object. COLVIN TO THE FRONT. At the conclusion of Charley’s harangue, Mr. Colvin was loudly called for. He etepped.fop ward in his usual bland manner, lifted up his voice and said: _ . _ . , , u Aly Pellow-dtlzens; I must first acknowl edge the high compliment paid to me by the Committee who were tho getters up of this jnwoinjfr fraymff ££u£ the people to vait upon THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: SATURDAY, MAT 13, 1876-TWELTE PAGES. me to Invite me to meet and participate In - yonr proceedings. Now, gentlemen, I think that what wo want to talk about tonight Is to talk to the question, and the question, if I understand it, is as to the action of men who represent you. We cannot misunderstand that in 1873 there were two par ties in Chicago. One was called the Law and Order party, and the other the People’s and Liberal party. A gentlemen who I very highly respect and is one of the beet men In Chicago, was placed upon that ticket that was calledftie Citizen’s ticket and I was selected by the Lib erty or People’s party to represent them on their ticket. Now, there has oeen a cause for the establishment of the People’s party. It a . caUse that there were people in Chicago, and headed by the man who now represents The Tribune, that undertook to deprive the people, as they thought’ of their liberty, and they determined not to submit to it any longer. They united with tbelr neighbors, and they succeeded in electing me to the office of Mayor. Now, the question is whether I have done what the people expected me to do when I was elected to the office. [Cries of “Yesl”} Haveleverfalteredln anyplace! [“No!”] I was elected regardless of nationality, regardless of politics, regardless of religion. They were of one sentiment in regard to that. My adminis tration has never recognized either of those things during my —since I have been elected. I have never inquired when a friend was a candi date for office whether he was a Democrat, whether he was an Irishman, whether he was a German, a Pole, ora Swede, or anything else. The question has always been with me: *ls he a competent man to fill the place that ho seeks or that ho sends his friends to seek for him!’ I have tried, during all this time that i have occupied this place, to recognize all na tionalities—never was any question on the sub ject of religion at all, but recognized all na tionalities just so far as 1 was able to da I have appointed a great many men to office since I have ocen in office. I have appointed men to the Board of Education, to the hoard of Public Works, to the Police Department, to the Fire Deportment, to the Board of Health, and all these different places, and the Board of Public Library, and I have always endeavored to RECOGNIZE ALL NATIONALITIES. I have esteemed it to bo my duty to do that because I was elected non-partisian and non nationality. Now, gentlemen, If that personal liberty at that time was dear to us all, for I confess I want mine just as much as any of you, lam not resting as far as I am Individually concerned in regard to the holding of this office. I speak now purely from the principles we* adopted at that time. If at this time we bad the same united front to represent your ward and a few other wards, we should have been in a position to have prevented the people, who called themselves then the Law and Order party, from riding rough-shod over law aud everything else, and attempting to put a man out o’f the office that the Supreme Court has decided occupied it by law.” [Cheers.] Having given enough of Harvey’s discourse to show that ne has not lost those characteristics of style and composition which have made his oratorical efforts famous, the readers of Tire Tribune will no doubt be exceedingly thankful that they ore to be iufiictcd with no more of Ids remarks verbatim. Mr. Colvin said he had the consolation of sce ug beside him a gentleman with whom he bad been connected In the Common Council for twenty-eight months. It wos cx-Ald. Schaffner. who was deeply conscious of the compliment, and sat, with his legs crossed, between those disciples of the master, Joe For rest and Charley Cameron, by merit raised to that bad eminence. Colvin said that Schaffner and Lcngachcr had never failed under any circum stances to stand by every single principle adopted by the People’s party, in fact, the North Side had been pretty solid. But it was not so at present. Some of “our” German friends In the Council had not seen fit to under take to sustain the positions occupied by the People’s party then and now, and by Colvin as its great Moses. It was no matter to him whether he was Mayor for a longer or a shorter time. He had bad as much abuse as most men would care for for twenty-eight mouths. No body could aay why he hail been ABUSED SO SHAMEFULLY. Storey had once told him that It didn’t amount to much, and that he must be a very thin-skinned man if he couldn’t stand a little abuse, and thereby sell & few copies of the Timet. Mr. Colvin then went into the tax question, and commented on the assertion which ne put forward that the silk stockings did not pay taxes, much to the delight of his audience. He neglected to state the true reason for this, however, which the reading peo ple of Chicago by this time fully understand. He then stated his famous proposition to submit the case to the courts, and left the impression on the audience that a fairer man never lived. He said if the courts decided against him he would retire with the greatest pleasure in the world. If the law wasiorhim,hc should endeavor to occupy the position'as long as the law required. He would go still farther. He had been MAGNANIMOUS IN ALU HIS PROPOSITIONS, and tbc public had said so. If Mr. Hoyne, or anybody else among the Puritanical element, proposed to fight the thing out, he would go out tomorrow morning and resign Ids place, with the perfect understanding that he should have Mr. Hoyne put right m the field against him as a*candldats. If Mr. Hoyne beat him he would acquiesce as a gentleman, and if he beat Mr. Qoyne he sboul expect him to do the same thing. In closing he resorted to the shallow trick of saying that his office had always been open to all, rich and poor, invited the crowd bo fore him to call upon him If they wanted any* thing, and said he would do what ho could for them. He thanked them for listening to him (they deserved some sort of commiseration) and said he should be most happy to come and see them again. [Cheers.] On motion of John Paul, the following Com mittee was appointed to draft resolutions; John Paul, T. Busheck, J. Kcmitz, J. Rbinewold, H. Schmchl, J. Wagner, J. C. Goebel. While they were out Aid. White was called upon, but modestly pressed his friend SCHAFFNZR into service. It Is unnecessary to dwell upon the remarks of the latter. They were charac teristic iu their display of ignorance and ego tism. There was one thing m his speech, how ever, which deserves credit. * He admonished his audience of the folly of resort ing to violence against Aid. Linsenbarth or any other objectionable Alderman, TUB RESOLUTIONS. The Committee were out long enough to copy off a lot of resolutions cooked up between Col vin, Cameron, and Forrest, and to express them in uncouth language. The resolutions were os follows, and were adopted without the least difficulty : Whereas, The majority of the citizens of the North Division of Chicago held as right that the Hon. Harvey D. Colvin ia the rightful Mayor of the City of Chicago according to tbc charter of 1872 until April, 1877; Whereas, Messrs. Linscnbrath, Boecr, and Waldo were elected Aldermen at tbc last election; and Whereas, Said Linsenbarth, Boaer, and Waldo show by their actions and votes in the Council that they act against the wishes of their constitu ents, votingfor and supporting one certain Thomas Hoyne as Mayor of the City of Chicago, and by this action helping to produce disorder and law lessness incur city;therefore, be it EeeolvedL, That the citizens of tho North Side disapprove of the notions of the said Aldermen in the Council, and demand of them now that they will henceforth support the lawful Mayor of Chi cago, the Hon. Harvey D. Colvin, until bia term of office Is expired, in April, 1877. Should the said Aldermen refuse to accede to our just request; then wc demand of them to hand in their resignations, that more able and trusty men be elected into their offices, —men who will act In accordance with the wishes of their con stituents. • ResolcecL That we heartily indorse the action of Mayor H. D. Colvin in offering to submit the ques tion of his legal right to his office to the Supreme Court, and we denounce the mob spirit of the ma jority of the Common Council in refusing to sub mit their case to this legal tribunal. Resolved. That we pledge our hearty support to Mayor Colvin in all hfa legal acts, and that, if ft should become necessary, we will rally to his as sistance when he shall call upon ns to protect him in his legal rights. And then tho-mectlng adjourned. THE COUTBBBXCES. AT ALP. THOMPSON’S. Testerday morning there assembled in Aid. Thompson’s office in Bcaper Block, corner ol Clark and ‘Washington streets, Judge Beckwith, James P. Boot, Mr. Goudy, and Egbert Jamie son, for Mr. Colvin, and Lawyers Jewett and Tuley for Mayor Hoyne. The canse of the gathering was to discuss the prospects for an amicable settlement of the difficulties between the two, Hoyno and Colvin. Messrs. Jewett and Tuley proposed on behalf of their side that tho Colvin faction recognize Hoyne as Mayor and then proceed to obtain a writ of qno warranto, bat on no consideration was the suit to be taken to the Supremo Court. In case they would accede to the proposition, the Hoyne party would agree to pnt no obstacles iu the way nor do anything that would cause delay; on tho contrary, they would do all in their power to aid and assist a speedy suit and a decision as soon as it conld be obtained. This decision was to prove final, and both par ties were to abide by it This proposition was met by the other aide with a flat refusal. Another proposition was informally made by one of llr. Colvin’s counsel. It was that both Mayors should step down and out, and tiiA Council elect one of tieir own number as Mayor. This scheme did not meet with any encouragement. It was con ceded by tho majority of the Council for the usurper that such a compromise would amount to surrendering to the Council just what they demanded, that he should give up. On the other aide it was contended that Mr. Hoime was elected and declared Mayor, and he would not resign. The people had chosen him as their standard-bearer, and be could not desert them In their hour of victory. The conference ad journed about noon, without having accom plished anything. EARLY IN THB AFTERNOON Messrs. Beckwith, Goudy, Root, and Jamieson held a consultation'over the situation In Schhnp ferman’s. It lasted for upwards of an hour. What conclusions, If any, were reached, the In terested parties declined to announce. AT IT AGAIN. After almost eveiy employe had left the City Hall last night, and the place bore a deserted appearance, Mr. Colvin, Comptroller Hayes, and Lawyers Root, Goudy. and Jamieson had a long and earnest consultation in Mr. Hayes’ office, on what was the best course to pursue. They talked for some time on the proposition of Mayor Hoyne’s legal advisers, and agreed that they could not accept it. They had been magnani mous enough, aud did not feel called upon to agree to any proposition that made them con cede so much. Mnch breath was wasted, and it is supposed that many plots and plans were laid, but what they all were is not known, and time and Colvin’s actions only probably will develop. MAYOR HOYNE. Late last evening a Tridune commis sioner called on Mayor Hoyne at his residence on Michigan avenue, with a view of ascertaining the latest news on the situation. Mr. Hoyne stated that be had heard nothing from his counsel during the afternoon, aud supposed that tilings were just in about tho same condition as they were in tho morning. He still occupied the defensive Sosition. He was elected Mayor, had been con rmed and declared Mayor by over two-thirds of the Common Council, and, therefore, he did not know of any reason why he should rush into court and demand that a writ of quo war ranto be issued on Mr. Colvin. The boot was on the other leg. If Mr. Colvin did not feel satisfied that Mr. Hoyne was the Mayor de facto aud do jure, he could, if he saw fit, apply for such a writ. As fur as he (Hoyne) was con cerned, he should intense no obstacle, and would abide by the decision of the Court. He wanted peace. The citizens wanted peace, and he would do anything in his power to secure peace, so long as it did not place tim in a false position. _ EATLBOADS. CHEAP TRANSPORTATION. A meeting of the Cheap-Transportation Asso ciation of Now York was held last Thursday, at which the following interesting report regard ing the present vranmion g the trunk lines was submitted by the Committee on Railroad Trans portation : The Committee on Railway Transportation re spectfully report that the managers of the trunk hues leading from this city have at lost taken the position that rates to New York from the West shall be as low as those to any other seaboard city. This is a concession which the Cheap Transporta tion Association has long maintained should be adopted for the reason that the cost of transporta tion decreases very rapidly in proportion to the amount of business done, and even if there were no West-bound traffic, tee immense mass of mis cellaneous productions of the West which are shipped to this market would entitle her to even a lower rate than cities from 100 to 300 miles nearer the producing centres. The cost of hauling a train of cars 100 to 200 miles farther, when once started on their journey to the seaboard, id very small, and, as above stated, is more than compensated for by the quantities of beef, pork, lard, butter, cheese, eggs, flour, and live stock, besides the large miscellaneous class of goods for which there there is but little demand at other seaboard cities. The most forcible reason, however, why New York is entitled to a lower rate than other sea board cities Is that she furnishes a much larger percentage of West-bound freight than any other city. By far the larger num ber of freight cars from New York even are hauled back to the West empty, but New York has an advantage In this respect over either Baltimore, Philadelphia, or Boston in the proportion of more than two to one; yet this feat ure has never been recognized by railroad man agers in making up their tariffs, and New. York has been the goose which has always furnished an in definite supply of golden eggs. At last, however, the fact basmecome apparent to everybody that has long been notedly close observers, viz.: that the great trunk naturally work fn the in terest of Baltimore and Philadelphia, have so far diverted the commerce which formerly came to this citv that even onr trunk lines of railroad begin to feci it seriously, and hence have taken the posi tion above mentioned. Their action has had au immediate and positive effect of the most gratify ing character, and, if continued, cannot fall to permanently benefit the commerce and real estate interests of oar city. It is claimed that the present rales arc not remunerative to the roads, and that the customary dividends will be lacking If these rates are continued. It should be remembered, however, that the capital stocks of all onr trunk lines have been watered from time to time until it bus long been a marvel to our busi ness men how they could manage to pay dividends at all. The best Judges claim that if the Now York Central Railroad earned 3 per cent upon Its present oatstanding obligations it will still be earning at the rate of Bto 9 per cent on the amount actually paid into Its treasury by its stock and bondholders, and it would, therefore, seem to be less of a hardship for these gentlemen to accept a reduced rate of dividends than it would be for the entire business and real estate interests of the city and State to continue to suffer as they have in the past In deed. in the opinion of yoar Committee, the wisest possible coarse for our railroad managers to take would be to foster, for a time at least, those inter ests which for a number of years have been so de pressed. This brings ns to the consideration of another most important feature in the situation, viz.: THE RATES ON WEST-BOUND FREIGHT. The policy of the roads in the past has been to give very low special contracts to wholesale mer chants in the interior, but to charge the retail mer chant there their regular tariff rates, which, in some instances, have been two and three times as high as the special rates before mentioned. The effect of this policy has been, during the last ten years, to build up in all the interior cities, and even towns of any sire, an immense number-of wholesale houses, whose chief source of profit has been the discriminations which they were able to obtain in their rate of freight. This has resulted in the fact that not one retail merchant now visits this market to buy goods where ten formerly came, much to the detriment of our jobbingtrade in every branch, many houses of which have been driven out of business, and it baa only been the stronger ones that have been able to sustain this, and even they have been driven into importing and absorb ing in a variety of ways other branches “which for merly had a distinctive existence of their own. In doing this the railroads have greatly injured their Sasacnger traffic; have nearly bankrupted oar otel interest, and all they have gained nas been the exchange of a large number of small customers that paid them remunerative rates for a small num ber of large customers that now pay unremunora live rates. This Association has already taken measures to bring these facts to the notice of the men most largely Interested in the management of onr trunk lines, the executive officers of which have for a long time recognized these facts; but those higher in authority do not come in contact with the medium class of mer chants who are their best customers, and are there, fore slow to recognize the fact which would be of the greatest mutual advantage. It is to be boned, however, from the spirit manifested in oar-East bound freight matters, that a better understanding may be arrived at in regard to our West-bound in terests. Your Committee are in favor of making every proper advance looking toward this end, ana would therefore respectfully submit the following resolution: fiesolvedy That the thanks of the merchants of this city arc due to the managers of oar trank lines for their recognition of their interests in rates on East-bound freight, and that we respectfully solicit at their hands a consideration of the facta herein* before ontlined in regard to the rates on West bound freight, and the policy which in the past has resulted ho disastrously to the jobbing trade of this city. RATES TO THE SOUTH. The Illinois Central Railroad has issued a new freight tariff to points in the South, which reduces the rates slightly.

A Brain-Soothing Remedy* The wondrous organ that crowns the edifice of man Is not only the seat of reflection and the home of ideally, but it is the governing centre of the nervous it Is overwrought, unduly excited, or affected by irregularities of those bodily organs with wmch it most doscly sympathizes, all the nerves suffer, and the gen eral health is impaired. The reason why Hostet ler’s Stomach Bitters eserdse such a soothing in fluence upon the brain is, that they remove those digestive and bilious derangements which react injuriously upon it, and that, in relieving irrita tion or weakness oi the great sympatheticnervc which connects the stomach and the brain, they beneficially affect the latter organ as well as the former. Sound sleep, clearness of mind, easy digestion, and freedom from biliousness, are in sured by this prime regulative tonic and nervine. GBOG£IH£S. Hie Cheapest CROCEfiY HOUSE. Cut Loaf Sugar, ?? ft.
