Tin: QUO WARRANTO. Arguments Before the Circuit judges in the Mayoralty Case. Messrs. Fuller, Tuloy, and Jew ett Appear for Mayor Hoyno. And Messrs. Gently, Kent, and Jamieson I'or Mr. Colvin. ,(t Ib Not Known Whon tho Decision Will Be BonderotL HOYNE. TTtR t'UBMMINAmCB. Tho arguments In the qun warranto case came Up yesterday morning before Judge Booth In bnne. The attendance was altogether too largo lor tho small, poorly-ventilated court-room, and before tho attorneys had fairly warmed tip to their work their faces were dripping, until great beads of sweat formed there, and remained until their specific gravity was sufficient to dis lodge them on coats, collars,* shirt-fronts, or" legal documents. It was 10:30 before tho hall opened, and Chief-Justice Farwcll led the way to tho bench, followed by Judges Booth, Hagers, Williams, and McAllis ter. Mr. Colvin was ‘ represented by Messrs. Gbudy, Jamieson, and Hoot. Mayor Hoyne was represented by Messrs Fuller, Horton, Tulcy, and Jewett. Among tho legal lights present were Judge Morse, Clly Attorney Tuthtll. ttio Hon. Klllott Anthony, James It. Doolittle, Jr.. Judge Stanford, and Aid. Thomp son, while Joint Colvin sat at onu side of t'tc room paying close attention to every move In the game. It took some time to get to work. Mr. Gaudy had to explain the position in which the case stood. He said the parties were agreed to accept thu opinions of all the Judges, mid that the decision should be that of the majority. While no exact agreement had been reached as (o accepting the decision ns final, it was ex pected by all parlies that such would bo tho esse. Judge Booth announced that each side would be limited to three hours, and that the time consumed In tho reading of tho pleas would bo divided be tween tho two sides. Mr. Horton, for tho respondent, then read tho Information and picas, which had been arranged In concise form and printed. When he had read up to a certain point he was relieved by Mr. Tnley, and In this manner tho subsequent reading pro cei'dcd. Mr. Jamieson read the replications on the part of the relator. MR. FOI.LBR opened for the respondent. He said they bad de murred as to the replication, and ho proceeded to ihow the reason why. The Council bad ordered a general election, a Mayor was voted for, and one declared elected by the Council. The first question was, “Could a Mayor be elected between May, 1875, and April, 1877?” Mr. Fuller quoted from the statute at some length to enforce his point that a general election Implied the elec tion of a Mayor. Whenever a vacancy should ex ist. when Che unexplrcd term was a year or lunger, a Mayor was to he elected. For a shorter time, the Council could choose one of their own number to act as Mayor. This office was one of which it might ho said that few of Us occupants died and none resigned. That the statute provided one elec tion biennially. It didn't prevent an election when ever an exigency arose. The object of that act was to make the election of Mayors occur on the tame day throughout the State, hut It could not have boon Intended to produce uniformity In elec tions to fill vacancies, because no man could tell when vacancies coutti occur, (or the reason that loinc vacancies were caused by removal or death. Although the City Council might fail to call an election, the people might spontaneously pro ceed to elect a Mayor without a cal). If the people possessed the right to elect an officer, and the Council refused to discharge Us legal duty to fix such time and place for n special election, then at a general election, when officers were being elected, the people could exercise their rights, and adjudicated cases would sustain their action because the time ond place and the safe guards for a legal and valid election were all pres ent. Public notoriety was sufficient notice. The object of the Council, In opposing this construc tion, was to keep men In office who had no right to stay there. The statute contained a provision that no law should he enacted that would extend a term of office. It was argued on the other hand that Mr. Colvin was elected after this provision was made. Hut, argued Mr. Fuller, could a law bo constitu tional one time and unconstitutional at another time? It would probably ha conceded that it was unconstitutional to pass ao act extending a term. The drift of the argu ment on the other side was that Mr. Colvin held over anyhow until April, 1877. Bee. 0, Art. 1., ought not to be so construed os to mean that the party In power held over till 1877. If the Council liad issued the call, and Mr. lloyno had beeu elect ed, then could Mr. Colvin have sot up a claim to hold over? No good lawyer would hesitate to say that the clause in question could not keep him In office from May, 1875, to April, 1877, provided n successor hod been properly elected. Would the omission of the name of Mayor from the notice make any difference? The time and place were es sential, and sufficient certainty In tho result. The time and place were fixed by law, ami there was notice in fact that a Mayor would be elected. Tho replication set forth that the newspapers and the people were confused on this subject, and that the latter didn’t know how to vote. Wm it to he supposed that more than 88,000 people voted a ticket (leaded ‘ 'For Mayor, Thomas Tloyne, ” with out knowing what they were doing? Why. In tho ease of the charter election, tho Common Council gave no notice concerning tho question of minority representation, but U was voted on, ami tho Supremo Court hold that the absence of notice did not make any difference. Mr. Fuller quoted from tho bunks to show that the courts decided, against the general system of extending and holding over. Almost precisely such a cose us tho one at bar had come up in Ban Francisco, where no notice was given ond an officer was elected, the courts decid ing that the election was legal, even In the absence of the notice, according to tho provisions of the BUtc charter. Thors were other decisions to tho same effect, to which Mr. Fuller referred the Judges. Tho lust plea set up that the Council canvassed all the votes except that of Mayor, and then nd- Journod sine die, and then afterwards the new Council canvassed and declared the vote. Was Urn canvass by the old Council absolutely necessary and essential lo tho respondent? Tho pica asserted that it was, and that the old Connell, by refusing to canvass the vote, had rendered It incapable o being canvassed*! off. There was authority against such an opinion. It was surely not essential In a question of quo warranto, when tho Court could go Lack and examine the returns. Here Mr. Fuller announced that, while ho had not said all he meant to say, his time had elapsed, ond ho would give way to others, hoping ho had presented the strong points of tho case Id a'siUD* clcntly clear maimer. COTjVIN. Mil. JAMIESON then replied for tho relator. Ho said tho whole matter hinged on these two questions: Had it vacancy occurred? Had It been legally filled? He would only discuss the latter. For the sake of argument he admitted that a vacancy existed, but he held that tho voluntary deposit of votes for Hoyne was Illegal. Thu election was not a general election of city officers, and certainly nut a day fixed by law for the election of May or under tho statute. Mr. Jamieson could not see that the case quoted In 3 California could be against them, but, even admitting that it was, the trouble was that it was overruled In 0 Cali fornia. lu this cose, and in others which he pro ceeded to quote, it was held that the notice of election was absolutely essential to its legality, 1 When Mr. Jamieson hud finished his argument on the question of tho necessity of a notice of election, the Court look n recess till 3 o’clock. It was a little after 3 o’clock when the Court reassembled and Air. Jamieson continued his argument. Hu held that the voters were bound to take notice of the proceedings of the Council as published In the official paper. They were therefore hound to take notice that tho Coun cil refused to call an election for Mayor. In every case of a special election, notice was nec essary, and if there was no notice the election was void. That, ho continued, was established even by tho casus quoted by Sir. Fuller. Every annual election was tint a genera) election. Thu odd yearn were fixed by law an the'years for the flection of Mayor, ami no election should have been held until 1877. The respondents claimed that the public hod notice that there would Ins un flection, but Mr. Jamieson claimed that they also knew that tho Common Council refined to call un election, and that nn elec tion would bo void. How could It ho 'si'l that the simple deposit of votes with Thomas Hoy no’s name on them constitute d a valid election, opine voted out of foollugs of regard for Air. Hoyne, some out of spite to Mr. Colvin, but in tho {|HHt through Ignorance. If Mr. llnyno should be held u> bo Mayor, It was at tbu sacrifice of tho de cisions of every respectable court in the laud. , . MU- hoot followed Mr. Jomh'nnn. He Insisted that there mi vacancy, nud that, oven admitting a vacan cy, the election was not properly cnllod, ond was fcol. therefore, legal. There wore only three wuyq }o get a Mayor. They were, first, to elect b Mayor >Q tho odd yeare; second, where a vacaucy oc curred and tho unoxplrcd term was leu than a year; and, third, where the nnoiplrod term J*as longer than a year, and then the Council must give notice of the elec tion. None of these conditions wire present, it mattered not to u hat extent the people might five expression to their views, or how many c.ei tlng# might be held, or how uxteoiUely Ute S 3 might be advised that such expression vras sed: yet. if that exuresMouwaa pot Klveq mode provided by law, U «u a (lead letter. _ The votes given for Mr. Hoyne worn tbs Indices of an effervescence which exhllnrntcd to-day ami brought Us headache to-morrow. According to Mr. Hoot, the people were at present In the head- Aching stage. Me then quoted n long and learned comment by Judge Jnmeeon on Dan iel Webster's reply to nn argument hi the case of I,other vs. Borden, commonly known «■* the Dorr cn»e, by Mr. Ilnllctt, a Tory ingenious lawyer, who contended that the great body of the poojdn might change their form of government at any lime by any mode they might deem expedient, even whsro a subsisting confutation pointed out a particular mode. This reply, said Mr. Knot, had iHicn regarded by publicists and Jurists ft* an emi nent authority, and be considered the iirinclpleß enunciated by Mr. Webster as decidedly apropos in the case at bar. Authorities worn also quoted to ahow that it waa necessary to give notice of an election in order that It he legal. In concluding, Mr. Hoot Introdnccd the follow ing bit of satire, which ho delivered with great gusto: “Onoof our Snndny-Hchools concluded to have a picnic, for the Sunday-school children. The time was to be fixed by a committee; the officers of the picnic were to he appointed by fh« Committee. It was understood that there should be a special train, and a froo ride. The (rain had nut been or dered, nor the time fixed for it to start, but the children got impatolnt; they had a mass-meeting, and resolved that they would go on the first regular train. They got aboard, ond when the conductor came around they bud a difficulty with him, but they alt pulled out copies of Jewett's and Tntiilll’s opinions. The conductor said ho was not gorcrcned by that kind of law. They wore good picnic lawyers, but not good for a regular train. The hoya Insisted thoy were a picnic, that their Committee had not ordered a train, and they were not to be cheated by the malfeasance or misfeasance of the Committee, and so thoy hud the right to go on the first regular train. ‘That is true,'said the conductor, ‘hut if you go on a regular train you must go subject to the mica of a regular train. Ticket*. If you please.* 'lint, 1 aaid the Imys, 1 'don't picnics sometimes go on regular trains?' ‘Yea,* said the conductor, 'we sometimes hitch special cars fora picnic on to tho rearend, and usu (lie regular loco motive to null them through, but that Is dune by special order. ’" ilia deductions from tho foregoing were as fol lows: ‘ * That there is nothing In the law to warrant an election for any officer on the third Tnesdoy of April, 1870, not specifically named by the statute to bo voted for. That the pretended election of Mayor was a mere assemblage of people, unau thorised by law. That, no matter now ninny voted, nor to what extent It woe understood that Mr. Hoyne was a candidate, the pretended election wan not held In conformity to law. That there are but three occasions for electing a Mayor. First, a regular election in the odd year; second, by the Council, when the vacancy Is fur a period lens than a year: and, third, by a special election, when tho nnexplrcd term is more than a year, and then by a culled election with tho requisite notice. Mr. Hoync’e case Is neither of these. This Is all I de sire to nay. on this branch of the ease. I now come to tho proportion that there was no vacancy, and that Mr. - Colvin is entitled to hold nntll April, 1877. The argument on this point Is sub stantially the same as that submitted by myself to the Supremo Court in the mandamus case, at the January term, 1870, copies of which are herewith submitted," HOYNE AGAIN. MR. M. T. TULBY, of counsel for tho respondent, Mayor Hoync, next appeared oa the carpet, and stated that In November, 1870, Mr. Colvin was elected for two years until his successor shall be elected and qualified. This was under the act of 1800. In tho spring of 1875 tho charter of 1872 was adopted. In November, 1875, application was made to the Council to order a new election. Subsequently a mandamus was applied for to the Supreme Court to compel the Council to order an election. Tho Court was equally di vided, and as a result the Council did not order tho election. In April hist, at a gen eral election, tho people voted for a Mayor, and elected Mr. Iloyno Mayor. Tho old Coun cil refused to canvass the vote. The new Coun cil did, and declared Mr. Hoync Mayor. He was immediately recognized as Mayor by the heads of nearly all the departments. Thirty six thousand, a largo majority of the electors of this city, had already recognized him ns Mayor. Mr. Colvin, as one man, sets himself ns one man against tho voice of the people. Did Mr. Colvin have the right under the act of 1873 to hold over till 18771 This question lay at the foundation of the case. If he had the right to hold over, there was no ground whereupon to remove him.. After the adoption of the charter of 1873, that of 1863 was abolished. Tho saving clauses of tho former provided that the city would not be without Mayor, Aldermen, or soy other officer. It might have lon Its legal standing, in order that there should be no interregnum, a nronilsc was mailo that the of ficers then In power ahoald hold over until their successors should be appointed. Without tbu pataago of this clause, w« should have been a city without any laws or officers. In the incorporation of a town under tho act of 1873. there wus no Mayor or Aldermen to hold over. The object of Bcc. 3, Art. 1., was to prevent any Interregnum, aud for no other puopose. The section In relation to elections says that there will be a general elec tion for city officers In April of each year. Tills Includes tho Mayor, whenever there Is a vacancy id such office. It was not neccsoury for notice to be given. Judge McAllister—There is a special provision in the charter which says thatuMayoruluil be eluded In 1873. and biennially thereafter. Mr. Tuley—Whenever the vacancy shall occur in the even year, the election for Mayor shall take place at tho next general election. Judge McAllister—Do you take the biennial term as the standard? Mr.’Tuley—Yes, sir. Idon’t dispute but what It may bo filled by a special election. This is an elect ive office, and no act can deprive the people of a right to fill it. Judge McAllister—Suppose yon take the case. Suppose there was n vacancy In the judiciary of this Court n few days before the general election, ond tho Governor refused to call a special election; would the people bo instilled In voting to fill the vacancy at snch general election? Mr. Tuley—Not If tho Governor was required by statute to cal) tbe election. Judge McAllister—What la the difference In this case? Why did yon apply for u mandamus to com pel the Council to calf the election? Air. Tulcy—There Is no case in tho hooka analo gous to this one. The people have a vested right to elect their officers whenever there Is a vacancy, and tho Aldermen cannot rob them of it. Thin is a Government of the people by the people, and are they to bo divested of tnclr right by tho failure of the Supremo Court to pans on the cane? Tho peo ple expressed their Judgment on the mutter <u April fast They declared that Mr. Colvin was no longer Mayor. 110 hud nerved the full time to which he was elected. Take any other view, and the power is ploccd In the bumfs of the Common Council to roll tbu people of their rights. If tho Council had ordered the election for Mayor, would nnch election have been legal? If Uie Council failed to order such election, would not such elec tion taken by the people in their own hands have been equally legal? The question la just this: Will the law sustain the dolma of u no man against 50. QUO people? Judge McAllister—The case will bo decided by the law. Mr. Taley—Suppose it Is a question of doubt, is tho Court going to turn out Mr; Iloync? The will uf tho people settles nil contested elections and 3 no warranto cases. The wish of the people un erlies nil the principles of our Government. Will tho Court decide against the will of the people? MOIIE COEVIN. mu. w. o. GOUDT, of counsel for cx-Mayor Colvin, addressed Hie tlironu. The claim of Mr. lloyue to the of fice of Mayor wua bad for the reason that be was not elected at any legal election for Mayor. Mr.Culvln was elected lu November, 1873,t0 bold bis olllco for two years. The charter of 18(13 provided that,whenever a vacancy occurred In tbo olllco of Mayor, the Council should order a special elcctlou for Mayor within ton days. Colvin wiiH Mayor at the adoption of tho act «>f 1873. The people at that time adopted the charter of 18712, and all parts of tho charter of 18U3 not Inconsistent with It. It was by virtue of tho act of 1873 that Ur. Colvin con tinued to act as Mayor, and under the previsions of this act he was virtually a few officer. If Mr. Colvin was elected Mayor In April, 1870, how lung was he elected* Until hie successor should be elected and qualified. When should such successor he elected* Sec. 12 of Art. IV. declared that In 1b73, and biennially thereafter, the Mayor should be elected. The person elected in April, 1877, us Mayor, would ho a successor. Was there any pro vision for an earlier election* Tile provision fur a general election specified that there should bo an election in April each year. Did the provision for u special election provide for tbo flection of n Mayor 1 n tho April succeeding the adoption of the charter* The auction fur a funeral election of city officers each April did not provide for the election of a Mayor. Hence It did not provide for the election of all city officers. Aldermen were to be elected each two Tears, In view of the fact (hat at tho first election tuo Aldermen drew cuts for tbo long term. Judge Booth—Should an Alderman die in the first year of his office, and the Council should do cline or omit to order an election for bis successor, and the people should elect such successor at (ho uoxt general election would it lm legal* Mr, tloudv—There Isa special law on that sub ject. and If the Court please 1 shall explain the question later In my argument. The statutes pro vide for the election of Coventor at one time, Sheriff at a second Umc, County Treasurer at a third, and so on for various lengths of term. Mr, (loudy Uien reviewed tbs cases which had been cited, and quoted largely from Cooley on “Consti tutional UmlluUous, “ showing tho difference be tween regular and speelal elections. A vacancy In (he office of Alderman during (he Incumbency of the first year can only bo filled by a special election, ond the same rule Md* good na relative to the Mayor. Mr- Hoyn# could only deoed ftt( a •pciial election, Tbo fiotincif oa different THE CHICAGO occasions refused to call an election for rhooMng a Mayor, and wore Justified In doing so by the de cision of the Huprcnie Court. TIUS T.AHT WORD mr. j. n. jawntr, nf connael for Mayor Hoyne, succeeded Mr. (Jnudy, and closed tho rase. He profaned Ida argument, which was ft printed one, by remark ing that the cause at bar won mil generis. Noth ing like It was to be found anywhere In tlw books. Numerous authorities had been cited, ami all more or less diverged-from the case nt Issue. These authorities hftd not been crystal jzed luihclcnlly to become the recognized taw of the laud. It was the duty of the Court, In con sidering the weight of the authorities cited, to rcdni'O them to general principles and base their decision thereon. lie then proceeded to argue the case from a Jmrcly constitutional stand-point,—that all the ust powers of government were derived from lie consent of thu governed. This was tho under lying principle of the Declaration of Independence, and had been adopted Into every Constitution of tide Slate. The widoscoimof this declaration, If not limited by other constitutional provisions and legislation, would leave In the control of the people the right to select their representatives whenever they saw fit. To prevent a reign of an archy that might ensue under the nh*cncc of sucb limitations, tho people had Imposed a restraint upon themselves. The particular authority con ferred on municipalities was granted by the people themselves, ami, os grants of power from the sovereign people, they must bo strictly construed, whenever their intent shall he disputed. In the charter of IfiRH, under which the city worked nntll April, 1875, were provisions fixing tho terms of thu municipal officers, and giving them, when elected and Installed, the right to ex ercise the functions of their offices against the pop ular will. On the expiration of the terms of these officers there existed the right of the people to elect their successors. The relator, Mr. Colvin, was elected Mayor In November. 18711, for the period of two years, and nntii his successor should be elected and qualified. His term of office, if uninterrupted, would hsvo expired In November, 187.">, but in the meantime the city abandoned the old charter for that of 1872. The Slate Constitution said that no law should be passed to extend tho term of any public officer, after tils election or appointment. It was not necessary to urge this constitutional bar to the relator's further continuance In office. The act of 1872 did not at tempt to extend the term of any municipal officer. It was not the Intention of thu Leglaialuru that the transition from the old to tbu now dinner should leave Uic city wltliont ofllcinl representatives to at tend to municipal affairs. When they adopted the General law of 1873 as the charter of the dtv, they authorized the relator to exercise the functions of llio office of Mayor, under that act, until his successor should he elected and quali fied, and no longer. There was no provis ion in that act that he, or any other officer of the city, shonld hold bin office until the next regular Oat appointed for the election of similar officers minor that taw. Whether they should continue in office or not until such regular election day wan not a matter for their determination, but was dependent entirely upon the will of the peo ple, In whom, by the Constitution, resides the ul timate authority in all each cases, and the exercise of which is a natural and inherent right, only to be controlled In our Government when actually sur rendered, and then only so far os it Is surrendered for the general advantage. It was conceded that the City Council refused to order a special election for Mayor, and that the Supreme Court by an even decision of the Judges refused to compel the Council to call such election. The Council also refused to designate the office of Mayor an one of the offices to be tilled at the recent April election. The people, however, ossorted their right to elect the successor to the relator, and did elect the respondent as such successor on the general election-day. Did the failure or refusal of the Council to order such election work fatally to the claims of the respondent? There was no conflict of authorities there. All were on the side of the respondent. The right of the people to elect their officers was a fundamental one. The people of this city demanded a change. The great major ity of them determined that an election should he held, and it was hold. Jndire McAllister—ls not such proceeding eome* thing like the llhodc Island case? Mr. Jewett—No, sir. Hie Ithodo Island case does not resemble the one at bar. In that It was the attempt of the few to override the majority, and overturn im existing form of government. In this it is the voice of the majority to choose a successor to-a man whose term of office had expired, and to upset the form of gov* eminent". Tho counsel for the relator had called the action of the people revolutionary. Tho revolutionary action was on the othur side. The people only asserted tholr constitutional right of election against a spirit of usurpation. To charge them with revolution for exercising a natural and in herent richt, which they bad never surrendered or estopped themselves from asserting, wan a mis nomer, and. in that sense, would only find place In the vocabulary of tyrants and usurpers. Our political theology did not rocogni/c It, an the de cisions of the courts above referred to Abundantly showed. At the conclusion of Mr. Jewctt'n argument, the Court consulted for a few moments, and then an- nounced that they would meet at. 0:30 this morn ing, when they would determine when they would take tho case under advlßement, At 0:110 p. m. tho Court dissolved, each Honorable Judge stag gering under tho weight of picas, replications, demurrers, arguments, briefs, and authorities, which hud been hnrlcd at them all day long by tho counsel on both aides. LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE. CHEAP TRANSPORTATION. To the Editor of The Tribune. Chicago, May 51.—You may not have noticed the fact that notwithstanding (ho promise of Van derbilt, made to the mouther" of the “Cheap Transportation Association " some weeks ago, to the ellect that New York should be placed upon an equal fouling with Philadelphia and Haltlmnre in the matter of rates, he lias not kv_j hin pledge. On the contrary, the rates have continued to show currently, day by day, I lie usual dlflerenres, based on actual dlntuncca from Chicago to the several seaboard dtlos. Fop example: The “nll-rall rate" to-day to New York on grain, dour, provisions, etc.. Is CO cents per 100 Tt>h, while to Plillndelphia it is 00 per cent of CO cents {approximately), viz.. IHccnts per ion Tbs; and to Tfctltimore the rate is 87 percent of the New York rate, to wit.: 17U cents per 100 lbs. The pledge given by Vanderbilt was simply that (ho question of distance should not control the rates, but that the rate* to New York should always he os low from any Western point os to cither Philadelphia or Pnftlmorc. The relative differences In rates have been main tamed each and every day since the Commodore matte this promise, and what is the result of this relative difference? To-day, and for weeks past, the stream of freight* to Philadelphia and ualtt more is greater than tho supply of cars can possi bly accommodate, white such Is not tho case with similar freights for New York. Wo do not sec how New York la to accomplish anything by this effort to Ignore the question of distance, since oil Ilia roads leading Fast from Chicago basis their rates on tho “short lino dis tance" to the three seaport# named, which “short line ” Is via. the Fort W oyno & Pennsylvania Kail roads, not only to one but to each of the three sea board cities, giving each the advantage of geo graphical distance from Chicago, the West, and Northwest. It. Tim HBNDBHINO-IIOUBEfI. To the Editor of Tk* Tribune. Chicago, May 51.—Amidst the excitement now prevailing in our city about our financial affairs,. I fear our authorities are overlooking a reform of more vital consequence to our people than city certificates or the reduction of onr taxes. I refer to the Intolerable nnluance arising from the vil lainous stench endured by thfi people living in tho South Division, that unvulops that portion of our city every night, poisoning the air, and threaten ing disease and (tenth to the whole community. Why is it that Chicago, unlike any other city, will quietly submit to such an outrageous Infringement of all the rights and laws of health and common decency? 1 venture to say that no other city lu the Union would endure such an intolerable imposition for forty-eight hours. Nothing can be urged In favor of-the continuance of any system of busi ness that poisons the air fur miles around, scattering the seeda of disease broadcast through a great and populous city like ours. In whatever form this nuisance disguises itself It should bo driven out at once and forever. I hope tbu new organization of our authorities will afford as immediate relief by Instructing the iigard of Health to ascertain where and what ins nuisance Is that produces these vil lainous Ilridgenort odors, and then proceed with a determined will and persistent energy to remove the cause, let who wilt suffer In their pecuniary In terests thereby. When the lime arrives that 100, • ODD men, women, and children are obliged to breathe In an air freighted with disease and death, because a certain set of people want to make money in a business that is an acknowledged nuisance to the elty at large, I think it high time to lake meas ures lu teach such people that the public has cer tain rights that even business Is bound to respect.

TIIK nilß DEPARTMENT. The Clerk road the report of the Fire Committee recommending that the building In rear of the Water-Works be used as a repair-shop for tho Fire Department, nnd that one blacksmith, one helper, two machinists, and one wood-worker be engaged for said work. The report has boon published in full in Tnc Tuiiu-nx. Aid. Kirk moved to concur in the report. AM. .Sheridan opposed the passage on the ground that the annual bill for repairs would not bo re duced by the running of a repairing shop by the ° /id. Kirk stated that the Fire-Marshal told him that there mere mechanic* in the Department who could be detailed to do the greater portion of tho work, in regard to the question of was only necessary to ear that Iloatuu had In onu year saved $50, 000 by doing IU awn repairs. Aid. McAnlcy inquired If the Fire-Marshal In dorsed the proponed plan. Aid. Kirk replied that he did most heartily. The Marshal bad been trying to bare the matter con summated forseyera) years. The report was concurred Id by a rote of 23 to 1 —Aid. Sheridan voting In the negative. The Committee on Printing rcportedonordlnanre in favor of authorizing J. 11. liradwcll to do the printing of the Connell Proceedings at $2.73 per page, provided he should enter into a contract to furnish the proceeding* within forty-eight hours after copy woa furnished him, and provided the quality «tho paper to bo nned should he the same as that furnished by the City Clerk as a sample. Aid. Gilbert—l Imd several blank pages in the record which ar« numbered. Do we pay for them ? Nobody seemed equal to tho task or enlighten ing Aid. Gilbert oo ibis subject, and Mr. Moody, the Record Clerk, said the only really just way was to pay so much per 1,000 em* for composition and ao much per token fornrosswork. Aid. Kwtrcnuy moved to recommit the report. Aid. Lawler—The Clerk sent notice that those who wished to bid should nuud In their bid* to Imj examined by the Committee. We received one bid for printing the proceedings in pamphlet form at $2.10 per page. It was understood by the Com mittee that tho gentleman who put tu this bid fail ed to contract to do tho work, uul they gave it to tho uext lowest bidder, Mr. Uradwcli. I cannot understand what objcct.thc gentleman can have in referring this mutter back. Tbe only question for the Committee is, I* Mr. Ilnulwcll a responsible man. and will ho give good and BuOicicut lionds to do this work f0r52.76 per page?

PAEEICIDE. Throo Children Kill Their Father oo An rnunt of Ilia Cruel Treatment of Their Mother* Corr*»pontf*nc* AVm TnrV tUraht. Famoxs, DnpllnC'o.. N. C., MayU/i.— A mys terious tragedy was enacted near this atalion on the Wilmington & Weldon Railroad. InJanuury last. A while man named R. R. Hatch wan assassinated in the early hours of a dark winter night while rilling In hi* own house: receiving three gunshot wound*. from which ha died a few daysaflerwnrds. Coroner Lafayette Smith, of Duplin County, came to the spot, summoned a jury of the bystanders, and held an Inquest. It was in evidence at the inquest that the murdered man waa reckless and Intemper ate. a cruel husband and father, anil liad, on the day of his death, severely beaten his wife and locked her Into a room for another Hogging, which he threatened to administer on the morrow. At the same had driven his younger children, three in number, with curses out of doors. Testimony was also taken to the fact that three nearly slmnltaneou* discharges of a gun were heard at or near Hatch's house that night, soon af ter dark. No one, however, of the witnesses ex amined had seen anythin!.' which tended to Indl cutewhowas guilty of the homicide. Although the deceased had lingered for several days after re ceiving his mortal wounds he had made no dying declaration which Implicated anv person as his as sassin. The whole matter was a horrible and np imrently Impenetrable mystery. The Coroner’s ury returned a verdict tiiat Hatch came to his dentil at the hands of some person or persons to them unknown. Hatch had Insured hla life, some time previous to the murder, with the North Carolina Home Life Insurance Company, for tbebciiellt of certain of hla children. The policy vm for sl,f>oo. The Company's agent at Wilmington refused to make payment, upon the ground that he had reason to believe that the death of the Insured had been pro cured by the beneficiaries of the policy. The de tectives, Cameron and Martin, were employed. It Is said, for a large contingent fee, to work up the case. These detectives nt length, after a quest of months, shadowed a man named Weeks, who had married one of Hatch's elder daughters. Some slight outgivings and other clews were fastened upon which suggested that Weeks knew more about the slaying of Hatch than he waa disposed to reveal. He was confronted and charged with being accessory to the crime. He denied Ilia own participation, tint, being thoroughly frighten ed. Inculpated the little children whom natch had turned out of the house on that fatal night In mid winter. Two of these children are boys, onu aged HI ami the other 10, and the third Is a girl of some 112 years. In order to get something in the nature of evidence against them, the detective* proposed to conceal themselves In acme bushes near the roadside so that they might overhear a conver sation which Weeks whs to have with the accused. Accordingly Week* led a young negro man. whom he had also charged with complicity In the murder, toward the covert, before reaching which, howev er. the negro, suspecting something, refused to proceed further, saving, loud enough for the men In ambush to hear, that he didn’t want to talk any more about It. The two boys. Hutch’s sons, were nest brought within earshot of the detect ives, when Weeks talked over the circumstances of the mnrder with them. The hors spoke of iheir dead father's relentless cruelty to them and to their mother, and admitted that they shot and killed him. the gnn having been banded to them by their little sister. They Implicated the negro above mentioned os having tired one of the fatal shots. The boys nnd the negro were at once arrested and were taken on the 13th inst. before a Justice of Che Peace at this place for examination. The proceed ings were postponed until to-dny in order to obtain (lie attendance of counsel from Goldsboro. Lawyer Granger arrived here about 3 p. m..and the preliminary'examination proceeded, resulting in the committing of the accused for trial nt the next term of tho Duplin County Superior Court, which begins next week •at Kcnnnsville. There Is a strung and general sympathy for the unfortunate children, notwithstanding their unnatural act. Strange to say, the only apparent motive which impelled these almost Infant parri cides waslovo for their much-maltreated mother nnd u purpose to avenge her wrongs. IMPORTANT ENTERPRISES.
