THE COUNCIL. The Special Election Ordi nance Reported Back. A Long and Tedious Wrangle on Technical Points. The Mayor Held It Was Laid Over, and Various Aldermen Denied It. Aid. Cullerton Took an Appeal, Wliioh the Chair Would Not Entertain. But Finally Allowed It to Be Put, and Was Sus tained. The Sidewalk Inspectors Finally Swept Out of Existence. TIIE SPECIAL ELECTION. A SLIGHT MISAPPREHENSION. A special meeting of the Council was held Inst night to receive and act upon the report of the Financial Committee with reference to the special election for Mayor. Mayor Colvin pre sided, and there was a full attendance. Thu Clerk read tho eall for tho meeting. Aid. White—l move it bo placed on file. Aid. Hildreth (excitedly)—Mr. President, I move It be laid over and published. Let us sec what the ordinance Is. Aid. White—This Is the call for the special meeting. Aid. Hildreth—Oh. Second the motion. Tho call was placed on 111 c. IMPETUOUS DEMOSTHENES. As soon as this was done. Aid. Hildreth pop* ped up rapidly again with: I move to publish the ordinance for a spcciol election. Aid. Cullcrton —What ordinance? Aid. Hildreth—The one before the Council. Aid. Cullcrtou—There Is nothing yet before Aid. Hildreth said “Oh" once more, and flopped down like a lame duck. The Clerk then read the report of the Fi nance Committee, which recommended the passage of the ordinance ordering a special elec tion lor Mayor. LAY IT OVER. Ald.’Hlldrcth was up again before the lost words had died on the Clerk’s lips, and moved to lay over and publish. Aid. White—Second the motion. Aid. Thompson—That is made In the form ol a motion. Aid. Hildreth—No. It goes under the rules. Aid. Thompson—Under what rule? Aid. Hildreth—Rule 40and the charter also. Aid. Thompson—Tlie provision of the charter no application to this. If the gentleman refers to Sec. 43 » Aid. Hildreth—That is not the thing. See. <ls has something to say on the subject. Aid. Cullcrton—Can the gentleman show mo any provision of Sec. 05 wh(ch requires tho or der for a special election to be laid over and published! If there is anything in See. 65 which provides that this matter shall be laid over and published, 1 have not a word to say. Hut ho has not done yet. Aid. Hildreth—The report of tho Committee will have to bo laid over and published. Aid. Cullcrton—Does the gentleman change his motion, now? Aid. Hildreth—No. sir. I shall Insist on the re port of tho Committee being laid over and pub- Aid. Cullcrton—l take exception even to that. The report of the Committee cuts no figure with tho ordinance: nut a particle. The ordinance is be fore the Connell, und shall and must be acted on under the cull. Aid. Sommer—l would most certainly request tho two Aldermen who make this motion not to with drew It. I think the people of Chicago should un derstand what they are doing. 1 am for catling an election of Mayor In view of tho decision of the Circuit Court Judges. 1 want the people to under- Aland what It Is to go Into the election for Mayor. It mesns a good deni of expense, and na long as the majority of this Council Is not satisfied or don’t agron with the actions of (he Mayor to-day, I don't think It will endanger the public by withholding thin mailer for a week. lam going to KILL MYSELF KOUTUE OOOD OP THE CITY. Aid. Culierton—When? I Laughter, j Aid. Sommer— Well, you Know, I am going to vote on It right away, and I hope It will bo laid over and published, you know. [Laughter. ] Aid. Sheridan—What la before the house, Mr. President? The Mayor—Tho question of reference—that Is #ll. fIIEUIDAN. Aid. Sheridan—l would ask then o gentlemen to withdraw that motion. It Is a well-known fact that tho Into Council deliberately determined upon not allowing the people to call an election for Mayor. That is a patent fact. Thor did It, to be rurc, on the pretense that they had an assurance from tbo Supreme Court that your Honor held over until 1H77. That is tho excuse they had. lint to me and to others, who know well the efforts made to obtain tho result that was obtained, it is not u good one. This isanolhurattempl to procrastinate, and defeat the will of tho people. Hut the majority of the Connell will certainly not per mit this to fie carried out. If the gentlemen think they can thus run in the face of the people with Impunity, they will And out their mistake. There Is no cause for saying that tho Supreme Courtis likely to hold that your Honor Is continued until IHT7, and tho gentlemen may a« well give way with I good grace to the wishes of the people, and allow the election to bo culled. It is unfair on the part of the opposition to take advantage of the rules to defeat tho will of the people. Aid. Hldrotli—l don't desire to do anything of the kind. There Is an ordinance before the Com mittee. and it has not been the custom of the Coun cil before to pass an ordinance upon sight, and Hie gentlemen well know It. This matter can come up and ho acted upon next Monday evening. 1 sup posed that we hud this mewling for the pur pose of expediting tho mutter. if laid over and published we will know precisely whnt tho ordinance is. mid I for one want to understand the whole situation. U only makes a difference of four days. Ho you see any serious damage that can mult from a delay of four days? Arc the people going to sutler to such u terrible extent that wo should rush-thls matter to-night? I cannot see it. This delay simply makes the matter right. If I was In favor of calling on election, 1 would not have tho ordinance passed until published, in order that It should make the record all right In case Hie mailer should go Into court. Aid. Sheridan— It seems to mo this Is only for delay. Aid. Hildreth—lt Is not. Aid. Loiigncher—What is before tho house? I understand dial tills report goes over. The Mayor— Certainty—lt goes over under tho rules. Aid, Thompson—l do not understand any such matter has been ruled upon l»> tho presiding tinker. No such ruling wits announced mull now. The Mayor, I understand, is tbu ruling. Aid. Thompson—Docs that refer TO THU REPORT OH TU THE ORDINANCE} Tiie Mayor—The report uf the Committee. Aid. Thompson—Then Hie ordinance is still be* (ore Hie House? The Mayor—No. sir; it Is all the same matter. Aid. Thompson—l dislike exceedingly tu take an appeal from Hie decision of the Chair. Tiie Mayor—ln what respect? Aid. Thompson—ln reference tu (hat ruling. In my Judgment there is no rule which has any appli cation to this case. Aid. bummer (interrupting)—Head Itule 4ii. Aid. Tnumpeon—ltule 40 has no application Whatever Aid. bummer (again chiming In)— Itnle 40 says, “ Any report of a committee, whether a majority or minority report, may be deferred to the next regular meeting of the Council, and such report or reports shall bo published in the corjioratton newspaper by requeat of any two Aldermen pres ent. That covers it. Aid. Thompson—Hule 40 Is substantially Sec. 4!) of (ho charter, which refers exclusively to reports, mid nothing else. This report may ?w laid over and published under tiui rules. That Is unques tionable, and so far the decision was correct; but whether it takes tbs ordinance with It la another matter. Thu Mayor—lf you show me any law whereby it docs not, 1 will give in ul onto. 1 have no deslru to impede (he mutter at all. 1 want to meet things fairly and clearly. ALU. THOMPSON. Aid. Thompson—lt may ho well for mo to say now (hat I wax assured by friendiof tho Prodding Olllcer before tho meeting last Monday night that there would bo no objections whatovur to culling the special election. 1 Inserted in this ordinance June d 7 as the time for the election, supposing there would bo no objection whatever, end ihattt would ho limiiodiuudy passed unanimously, oud approved by tho Acting-Mayor. 1 urn freu to say that 1 was exceedingly surprised when objection was made, and I amsuprlsed now. Of course Ido not charge, and buvu no right to say, that any such objection was inspired by any of the friends of the Presiding Olllcer. Hut that was the Impression ander which 1 acted. 1 had that aspurunce from a person whom I know is author rlied to speak noon those matters, (t may be a serious question a* to whether this Jrdluunco goes over or nut. The nq>ori necessarily Joes over, amino far the decision of tho Presiding Acer Is manifestly correct. Hut whether tbo or dnance goes with U, this being* special jnceUug, the ordinance l>rlni? specially provided for In the cell, waives and disposes of Hnles 40 and 40, man ifestly anti necessarily, so Mint they have no appli cation whatever to this ordinance. Whether the section of the charter riMinlrlnjt the report to ho re* ferred for final action will carry the ordinance with It In a matter which perhaps trio Presiding Officer will deride. It I* a matter about which lam not perfectly satisfied in my own mind. Aid. Hildreth—lf one corn, tho other rocs. U has been the rule of the Council, and 1 can't see how you can niter It. Aid. Thompson—What tho custom of the Connell has been has some pertinency, but In aonic respects Is not to be regarded. The Mayor—lt seems to me It Is alt one thing,— the same subject matter,—and I don't sco how It can be settled. Aid. Thompson—Then that Is the ruling of tho presldlngofilccr? The Mayor—l can't see how I can do otherwise. Aid. Thompson—l don't understand that tho lay ing over of the report has been called for by two Aldermen. Thera was a motion made, which was seconded. Aid. Hildreth—Yes, there was, I called for the reference, and there was a second. Aid. Thompson—There was a motion that the report be laid over, but that didn't amount to a call. In the absence of any call, I call for action on tho report. TIITC APPBAX.. ANOTDBtt WIIANUI.B. Aid. Lcngncher understood tho Chair has de cided tho report la laid over on tho request of two Aldermen, which (a perfectly right and proper. I would oak tho Presiding Officer whether thcro la any other business before tho house! Thu Mayor—l don't know. Aid. Lengachcr—l move we adjourn. Aid. While—l second the motion. Aid. Cullerton—l call for the yens and nays, Imt I shall appeal from tho decision of tho Chair. Aid. Lengachcr—There Is no appeal. Aid. Cullerton—Well, we shall see. Thu vote was called on the motion to ad journ and was lost by a vote of 83 to 4. Aid. Cullerton—Tne decision Is that the re port and ordinance arc laid over. Tho Mayor—lt Is all one subject matter. Aid. Cullerton—l demand an appeal from tho decision of the Choir. Aid. Hildreth—A point of order. Tho matter has been disposed or. and the motion made to adjourn, and the Clerk has called the roll. Thcro is nothing to take an appeal from now, unless tho Alderman wants to appeal from tho vote Just taken to adjourn. [Laughter.] This matter has all been disposed of. At the request of Aid. Cullerton the Clorkread the call for the meeting. Aid. Cullerton—lt Is evident that the Council was called this evening for same purpose. That a >oso Is stated In tho call. I have taken an op from the decision of tho Chair. Aid. Hildreth—l'would like to have my point of order ruled upon, No appeal can he taken now at all events. In the first place, there can he no ap peal taken, hut at the present lime there certainly cannot be any appeal taken because the matter ban been disposed of. Aid. Cullerton—But the rules are In order any time, arc they not? Aid. Hildreth—Oh, yes; very good. Aid. McAiilcy—Do you understand, Aid. Hil dreth. that the motion to adjourn cuts any figure? Doeslt interrupt businem In any manner? Dues it apt oil the discussion of any question before the assembly when a motion Is made to adjourn? Aid. Hildreth—There are privileged motions wherein you cannot bring In a question to adjourn. There arc times when yon cun bring In a question. As far as this Is concerned, it goes over under the rules, und don't require any votes to send it. Under the request of any two Aldermen It goes over. The fact of there being a special meeting called docs not abolish the rules. The Mayor—l don't regard that there is anything before tbe house at present. Aid. Cullcrton—Docs the Chair decide there Is nothing before the bouse? . The Movor—lt’s Just tbe same os If it was laid over last Monday night. Aid. Cullcrton—l shall take an appeal from the ruling of the Chair if 1 can get A second. Aid. Thompson—l second the appeal. Aid. Sommer—’There Is no decision, your Honor. It Is only the request of two Aldermen. lam the third one, and 1 hone there are thirty-six here to night who will not Allow the rules to be overridden. Aid. Cullcrton—ls that your point of order? Aid. Sommer—lt Is a point of order. There Is no decision; it Is a request from two Aldermen. Aid. Cullcrton—l havu taken an appeal from the decision of the Chair, and It was seconded. It Is now before the house. TUB APPEAL HOT ENTERTAINED. The Mayor—Aid. Cullcrton, this is very far fetched. Aid. Cullcrton—W hich, the ruling or tho motion? [Laughter.] Tho Mayor—You know very well that It is tho rule of the Council, and that there Is no question about It at all. Aid. Cullorton—Does the Chair entertain the ap peal? Tho Mayor—l do not. Aid. Sheridan—l rise for the purpose of trying to make this matter a little more definite. This rule says any report may be deferred until the next regular meeting. That ends that, about laying over. " Such report shall be published on the re quest of any two Aldermen." Tim i»ibHcnti<in Is one thing, and action on the subject limiter Is altogether a different tiling. There is a total mis apprehension of this rule, under which you seem inclined to crowd out the action of the Council. lUtllllcll ku nunu uu. mu U.IIIM. ui m>. wum.iii The Mayor—l don't intend to crowd auybody. Aid. Sheridan—l meant these oilier gentlemen. The Mayor—l have no desire In the matter my* self, Hut onu time a thing goes over under the rules, and tho next time it don't go over, and 1 can’t understand that. CENSORIOUS LENGACUKR. Aid. Lemrachcr—Who has tho floor? I Bee two or tlircc Aldermen standing there, and waiting foi tho best chances, la Aid. Sheridan asking infer* million of Aid. Culierton, or not? Aid. Culierton—lt seems to mo that Aid. Len gnehe'r has the floor, ami is doing some talking now. Tho May Jr—Aid. Sheridan has the floor, and Is asking a question by permission. Aid. I.euguch«c— I don’t approve of any each proceedings in this Council; two or three members holding the floor all night. Aid. Sheridan—This rule Is to me as clear as any thing can be. • The Mayor—What Is that rule? Aid. Sheridan—Units 40. A report may be laid over, but, by the request of two Aldermen, shall bo published.. The publication is a matter of evi dence. They arc two different matters. If tho Council votes to lay over, It may do so, but It doesn't go over under Ibis rule, and 1 would say. further. Hint If this Is published hufora It is acted upon by this Council that tho publication would not be any evidence at all before the courts. It is only after that ordinance Is pnssed and published that It becomes evidence before the courts, so that whatever the gentleman from tho Eighth says is altogether out ot place. It would take a double publication to take this before tho courts, and un der this rule the Council has the determination of that ease m Its own hands. The Mayor—l havu no desire to do anything the kind. Aid. Hildreth—How does the Alderman gotovt this: ••All reports shall be published in a com ration newspaper by tho request of any two Alaei men present*'? The Mayor—Aid. Sheridan, how do you gt around that? Aid. Sheridan—lt is as plain as can ho. This re port Is the action of Hie Committee. It may he de ferred. The, ordinance was adopted by somebody else and was reported and referred to this Com mittee. Their report and that ordinance ore two separate and distinct things. Aid. Hildreth—'They are both one. Aid. Sheridan—They are nut one. That report contains a recommendation. That Is one thing anti tho ordinance is entirely a different affair. This ordinance, Hie rule says, may he laid uver, Implying Hint the Connell has the power and au thority tu lay it over if we, so choose, hut that on Urn request uf any two Aldermen It shall bo pub lished. The publication is one act oud Iho laying over is another, They are two separate and dis tinct acts, because U would bo a double publica tion in this sense. It would have to be published when lapsed to become evidence before Hie courts, amt tills attempt tu make the publication neces sary before tbu passage Is altogether out of order. It Is a double publication, and only brought up fur the purpose of delay. The Mayor—lt seems to me that Is far-fctchcd. Aid. Sheridan—Not If 1 can read the English language It isn't, and 1 think I can. Aid. Hildreth—'The communication has been re ferred, and there Is nothing before the bouse. This argument Is out of order. Aid. Thompson—l say there !a something before the house. The appeal uf Aid. Culierton must be entertained by the chair. Tiie Mayor—The Chair don't think there la any thing before tho house. Aid. White—Point uf urder. There is nothing before tbo house. CLAIMING TUB FLOOR. Aid. Cullerton—Do yon Intend to recognize AM. White? The Mayor—Unless you stand there til night. Aid. Cullerton—l don't see haw I can do other wise when gentlemen rbo and maku speeches while 1 have the floor, 1 asked for an appeal. You de cided It out of order. If the Chair desires to clog legislation Thu Mayor—l don't desire to do so. Aid. Cullortoii—You do at). Never In the history of any legislative body was an appeal refused to be entertained by the Chair. Thu Mayor—l don't bcllevo there is a man here who believes that It la not all one and tho same subject mailer. AM. Thompson—l tako tho same position in re fanl to that matter, but lam with Aid. ('ullerloii n the position he lakes that the Chair shall pul the appeal. SOME BIOTtE ARGUMENT. TUB UAVOB ASKS A QUBSTION. The Mayor—Now, Aldennuu, allow me to pat a question: Why do you ask mo to put the ap peal when you know tho law has been con formed to (n my ruling! Aid. Thompson—because It la the right of any member to demand it, and not your right to refuse it. [Applause.] Aid. Cullerton—lf tho Council Is to bo dogged lu this matter, I would simply like to explain my position as a question of privilege. 1 hope I will not lje refused that. THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: THURSDAY. JUNE R, 1876, The Alderman paused for a reply from the Choir, but the Mayor pondered over the matter some time, and Aid. Throop rose while he was still nndedded whether to listen to Cullerton or not. Hald Throop: I rise to « point of-order. The gen tleman has occupied the floor twenty minutes-- I have been watching the lime—and 1 think ttiat is long enough. The Mayor did not deride upon this point, hut sat musingly with Ids hand to his head, ami the sneaker continued: 1 would aakaa a matter of privilege that the gentleman withdraw Ids mo* tlou— Aid. Cullerton—A point of order. What la before the house. Mr. President? The Mayor—The same subject there was be fore) when you were up. Aid. Cullerton—Nothing, That Is, according to your ruling. The Mayor—Proceed, Aid. Throop. AI.U. THROOP Aid. Throop—l whdi to ask those gentlemen who objected to this thing to withdraw and let the subject coin* before tiie house. I want to go away pretty soon, and I would like to have this thing settled. I want every man to have an oppor tunity of expressing his opinion on the subject, and this seems to prevent It. I have some doubt as to the propriety of passing the order, butrlltll ennio with the express object of voting for it, be cause 1 think the people ought to have the chance to pass upon this quentlon oi the Mayoralty os soon M possible. There seems to bo a difference of opinion on tho subject among the people, and I wish tlie gentleman, as a matter or friendship to withdraw the motion. Aid. Hildreth—l would cheerfully withdraw my objection if it made any serious difference. Hut It docs nut. ft only makes a difference of between now and Mondoy night. In the meantime It can be published, nndwu will know exactly what it is. To pays it now would be legislating without know ing what wo are legislating upon. I cannot sea where tho delay is going to place anything In the way of Hie will of the people. Aid. Tbroojv-Woll, If tho delay Is only three days It duos not make any more cUflercncowith you than ft docs with me. l.ct It come before the Conn ell, and let as act upon tt like men. The delay amounts to a good deal for people who want their pay, and this multiplication of difilcuUlcs is becoming serious, I must confess I have great pity for a largo number of onr employes. The Assistant Treasurer told me to-day that there Is $-150,000 in the Treasury, and no man is author ised to draw it to pay the poor people who have been working for tnc city. I think ills a great misfortune, and I hope that nothing further will he done to complicate mutters. 1. (or one, am rcaily to do anything in bring this tiling to a bead, so that some one will be authorized to do some thing in the city In u legal way. Aid. Hildreth—Docs the calling of an election for Mayor mnko any difference on that point? Is not Mayor Colvin the legal Mayor,? Aid. Throop—The members hero seem to wish to discurn lids subject, and by this action we cut off everything. I may not be here next meeting— probably yon will do better without me—and I should like to have the matter discussed now Inn busineas-Uku way. HO OOOD IN DELAY. Aid. McCrea—l am, for one, in the mind of Aid, Throop, No advantage or benefit will accrue to the people of Chicago by delaying this matter. There is but one expression of opinion on this sub ject outside, and that is that we must have a spe cial election. All the Information In Hint ordi nance, which It Is held should be published in order that people may know what they are doing, Is contained in one page,—the balance of it refers to voting places,—and It dons seem to mo that this present attempt Is filibustering for time. I don’t beflovc, gentlemen, in the crippled and em barrassed condition of the city, are Justified In prossiug this point. Three or four days will make no particular difference with those who ask the de lay. The people are getting out of all patience, and I believe wo can Just as well take this action to-nlghl, under the rules and under the charter, as we over will. It Is a most serious matter, lam a member of the Finance Committee, and know the terrible condition of the employes of the city who arc imploring every day for some thing to be done whereby they may get a portion of the money due, and here we havea balf-a-tnUllon In the Treasury which should be disbursed, but will nut be until the Mayoralty question is settled. They nil say that the only way out is the settlement of this question. Then why impede or embarrass action in that direction? In regard to the rule dis cussed, I am satisfied that Rule 4P contains three distinct propositions. It says "any report of a committee, whether a majority or minority report, may be deferred to the next regular meeting.” That is not mandatory: It docs not say "shall be deferred.” “ And such report or reports ”If de ferred, " shall bo published.” Aid. Cullcrton—ln the corporation paper, which wo have not. * Aid. JlcCren—'When the report of any committee conies up for concurrence, a minority report may be moved ns a substitute for the majority. Now, If Aid. Lengnehor. who did not agree with on on this report, had handed In a minority report, It might have been substituted for tho majority report; but he did not do so. Thu first am) second of the tlircu propositions 1 have mentioned arc contingent on the other. The rule says It may be referred. That in not mandatory; and ll also means that wo may act on It at once. Hut If a report is deferred, then It shall be published In the corporation paper. Now, I appeal to you, gentlemen, as a member of the Finance Committee, not to press tills for the small time which Is gained. Do not embarrass thin movement. There ts no Information in that ordi nance except what the people will hall with delight If published in tho papers; und there can be no possible advantage or interest to the city by laying this over for publication. COST OB TUB ELECTION. Aid. Sommer—But there is another thing, yon know. This was simply referred to the Finance Committee to tlnd out how much' It will cost to hold a special election. Aid. McCrea—Although that la outside of the matter— Aid. Sommer (Interrupting)—What docs the Com mltteo on Finance mean— Aid. McCrea (trying to answer the gentleman from the Fifth Ward)—l regard that as entirely outside of thu subject matter, but—— Aidr Sommer (preparing for a speech)—You know, Mr. President Aid. McCrea (determined to settle tho point raised)—Allow me instate that from (he best In formation wo gut from men cognisant of such mat ters, that tho expense to the city properwllibc from $5,000 to $7,000. Those are the two ex tremes which have been estimated by gentlemen who ought to know. Aid. Hildreth went on to show that in tho ab sence of a corporation newspaper, publication In pamphlet was essential. lie than quoted sums mure law to show that he was right on the question lie had raised. Aid. McCrea repeated bis explanation of Itule 41), and said: I should like to add, Mr. President, that yon are entirely mistaken In not entertaining thin appeal. It is not possible that you as presid ing unlccr can obstruct the will of a deliberative body. The Mayor—l have no desire to. Aid. McCrea—Hero is a sentiment running through hero that If yon are disposed to deal with fairness— The Mayor—l am. Aid. McCrea (continuing)—Yoa would be willing to submit to tho majority of the Council. Hut you arc placing yourself entirely antagonistic to (he sentiment of the whole Council. If I were presid ing oftlcer. X would submit everything. The will of the majority must always control bodies. Aid. Hildreth—ln that event, what has the mi nority gut hut the laws and Iho rules for their pro tection? If the majority shall rule in that spirit, that they shall have their way In appointing laws and rules, it Is the Chairman's duty to hold to the law, and project tho minority. Aid. CnllcHou—A point or order. What Is before tho house? The .Mayor—Nothing at all. Aid. Culierton—Then why this discussion? Aid. 1 think this side ot the house ought to have a chance to express Its views. Aid. McCrea says that 1 ought to have brought in a minority report. Tho reason why 1 illdii t do It was, not to bring it In ns a substitute. For that very reason—that this report has to go over and be published—l did not want my minority report, be cause it would have been killed off here, 1 don't spprcclatu these bimcoinl>e speerhes about (hu poor workingmen In this house, if a man behoves In Hie poor workingman, he will not object to lay ing this over and publishing ft. It seems to mo Hicru is too much buncombe to-night, and it seems to me that the Chairman ought tu have closed Hint question fifteen or twenty minutes ago. There is nothing before the house. Aid. Sweeney—l understood the Chairman of tho Finance Committee to say thoru is $500,000 in the City Treasury. Aid. McCrea—ln that vicinity. wur NOT I’AY it out! AM. Sweeney—l would like to know why tbia s.'>oo,ooo baa nut been paid out? It la acknowl edged by the Courts that we have a Mayor, and what better position would wo be in utter tafu elec tion? I don't see any reason why the poor labor ing man that there ha* boon so much talk about hasn't been imid since the decision. And It seems to me that If theOompirollcrclnga the wheels there ought to be aume course arrived at by which wo can par these men their money. Aid. McAuley—Any further business? The Mayor—OU, well, the same subject os be fore. Aid. Sweeney—We ran get nothing by a Mayor. I want to pay tills fAOO.OOO. I would liku to understand this matter. AM. McCrvu-lt Is because when your Mayoralty question U settled the Comptrolh rsblp will be set tled. We hate two met. claiming to be Comp trollers, and one dare not act for the present. 1 bad a talk with both this afternoon, and neither fell Justltied in touching the money at the present time until this Mayoralty question is settled. Tim Mayor—Docs Mr. Hayes doubt bis authority to draw money? Aid. McCrea—l think he expressed himself that hr would have doubts alxiiit paying this money out III) tho question was seltled. (Wsldea that, (be 'money is in the Treasurer’* hands. Aid. Sweeney—l wish to appoint another Comp troller qnd, If liu won't act. to appoint still an other. midget this thing down to a Hue point, and give the pour men thclrmoncy. (Laughter.] Aid. McCTea—W« bare gut too many oflicers DOW. Aid. White— I The charter sustains the Chair. There Is no question about it. If any two Aider men Insist upon tbo reference of a report it mud go to u committee, under the charter. There is no attention paid hero to thy rules and the law. Hvcrythlng is done by a majority vole, and whatever the majority vole dues Is law, according to the position of sumo of these gentlemen, which Is wrung. Thu ques tion baa been raised about the Mayor and the pay ment of the police, firemen, and others. It is not tkeMsvorwuobaa brought Ibis about. It Is the mnjorllr of this Connell. They recognize the net* of one Thomas 110-ne, while assuming to set as Mayor. Mr. Colvin vetor* that act, anil they came in here anil carried it orer hi* head, and have gone on and recognized Mr. Dnrlckson a* Comptroller. Every gentleman that voted for that, which knew that Mr. Colvin was tho legal Mayor, wanted to rerognlze Blr. Derlckson aa Comptroller. They all voted Intelligently, and knew they would bring up Ihla difficulty here to-day. lathe minority to Illume? No, air I Reconsider the action by which Mr. Derlckson was made Comptroller, and tho question can be settled in a week, and the men ho paid off. Aafaraa Cllrton Briggs la concerned. Ills failure to give bond Is no reason why the men should not bn paid. Mr. O’llara Is In pos>esslon of tho ofllce. There la where this whole matter tesla to-night. If they want to defer It until they have the pleasure of electing another Mayor, very well and good, hut I shall Insist on this charter being In force. ALD. ALDRICH. Aid. Aldrich—l don’t propose to take bnl a very few moments. I have no desire to go Into anything outside of tho matter that has called this up. There has been a long talk here shout something that has nothing to do with the case to-night. It has been misrepresented by the last gentleman, especially upon the report of the Committee on the bond of the Treasurer. That was laid over un der the rule. Aid. White—Wasn’t the report of the Committee placed on file? Aid. Aldrich—No, sir; the minority laid It over; but the question before us Is tho question which has been decided upon by the Chair, ami I apprehend If the Chair had looked Into it a little more closely he would have decided differently. If you will take the trouble to look at Rules 43, 44, 43, and 40, it goes right along and says * * shall.” It is all positive and mandatory until yon come to 40. and then It says “may.” Is It possible that If the rulers meant It shall go over they would have used the word “ may” ? The presiding officers always get into dlfliculty when they depart from tho rule laid down for the presiding officers. If the Chair had looked at the charter, he would have seen that It says “may.” It don’t go over under the folc. This Council Is made up of men that will not stand anything that looks like tyranny, because tyranny la something that doesn’t agree with the constitu tion of the people. Tiffs people disapproves of it. They cannot do It, and anything that looks like tyranny will never go down. And I want to say to the Chair, in all kindness, that It is not best for the Chairman of any deliberative body to refuse a member the right of appeal. That time has passed. He may do It of tils power, but he cannot do It an a matter of right. That Is one of tho reserved rights wc have here, and if is only for that right that I rise now. I wish the Chair would look at that, and reverse his rul ing. hut we cannot ho denied the right of appeal. That Is one of the things that cannot go down. If the Chair tabes the position that we > hall be denied the right of appeal, If the majority override tho mica and do that which Is not legally right, they take the responsibility, and not the Chair. It In both null und void. The minori ty have their rights. They are sacred here, and 1 would not take away one single one of them. But it won’t make a tyrant of the presiding olllccr. 1 am not sure I would have voted for the appeal, because I believe the charter governs tho matter. I would like to ace the people have their rights, but I have not the patience perhaps to onk those things. I have not the face to ask any favors whatever. I acknowledge the rights of the minority here. They have the right under the charter to put this over, hut you have not the right to refuse the appeal of any member on this floor. The Mayor—Will the Alderman allow me to say this: If you believe that I was right, why not sus tain mo in ruling right? .. .. Aid. Aldrich—l will sustain yon If I believe you are right: but you must not refuse the humblest man any right of appeal tf it comes up In legal shape; and 1 will say, In ail kindness, that your ruling gave us tho right to appeal, lam satisfied It Is the duty of this Council to put this matterover to the next meeting unless gentlemen withdraw the objection: but Twill not sit here as a member of this Council and allow any presiding officer to refuse the right of appeal. That cannot go down. [Aplausc In the lobby.) Aid. Throop—l want to ask to bo excused. I have to go to the cars, and have only Uuo to get there. On motion, the Aldermon was excused. Aid. Sommer argued that the matter went over without any decision of the Chair, and there was nothing to appeal about, yon know. Aid. Aldrich—Tho chair decides that the report will and must go over under the rules without a vote, and Aid. Cullerton appeals from the decision. The .Mayor—lf lam right about It, Is not that rli Ah/. Aldrich—Well, let the appeal decide; you don't take the responsibility. Aid. Hildreth—The right to defer Is guaranteed to any two members by the charter. Aid. Aldrich—That Is not the question at all; It la the right to appeal. Aid. lllldretb made another speech about the blessing to be derived by postponing the aubject to Monday night, but Aid. Aldrfcb again reminded him that the appeal vu the only Issue. Aid.Hildreth—Well, I bold this, thaton til points of order every member bas a right to take an ap* peal. But if a matter comet) up nut in accordance with the chatter or the rules, and the Chair do* cldes ll is not necessary to vote on It, and an Al* dermansays. ’“That is not the case; 1 take an appeal,” the Chair should be the Judge whether the Alderman Is lu order or not. Aid. Aldrich—Not at all. Aid. Ulldroth—That haa been done to me several times. The Chairman here baa the power to ad* journ this body without any vote, as I understand it. AM. Thompson—l understood that AM. Culler* on withdraws his appeal. Aid. Cullcrton—ll cannot be sustained. Aid. Thompson—Do 1 understand the gentleman ,o insist upon It? AM. Cnllcrton—What Is the use of insisting? Thu Chair refuses to entertain the appeal. AM. Thompson—Weil, if the Chair refuses to entertain the appeal, the house will not refuse. If jou insist upon the appeal, the house will enter* tain It. [Applause.] The Major—Are yon satisfied that the appeal should be taken? Aid. Cullcrton—l am satisfied (hat, according to the rules and the chaYtor, the Chair is wrong. The Mayor—You qrot AM. Cullcrton—Yes. fUTTINO THE VOTE. The Mayor—Then I will put the appeal. [Ap plause. ] The question la. shall the Chair be sus tained on the appeal of Aid. Gullerton. The Clerk called the roll and the vote resulted yeas U.“, nays 10, ua follows: JV<js—McAuley, Aldrich, Thompson, Gilbert, Stewart, Sheridan, Sommer, Xoddfnf. nildreth, O'Urlcn, Lawler. Bcidler.

The report of the Committee on Police on dis charge of Sidewalk Inapcctora, recommending duch discharge, was taken up. Aid. Stewart moved to concur la the report. Aid. Sheridan said that, while ho wua In favor of retrenchment, he did not believe hi discharg ing all thu men. The police were too busy to attend to It, and he thought that a few In spectors should be retained In the different sec tions of thu city. Hu moved to amend the reso lution to reserve one Inspector for the North, two for the South, ami three for the West Divis ions. Unless this were done there would be imiru accident* than It was possible to guard against, and by keeping these men the city would nave money that would otherwise bo paid In dam age* fur broken limb*. Aid. Pearsons said that Aid. Hherldan bad too pour uu opinion of the police, who were jHirfectly capable or taking care of thu walk*. Wo must cut down, and why nut commence with tbeau inspect oral Aid. Hildreth—There will Iw ten limes as much money recovered on Judgments against the city as the Inspectors cost. Every year sbowa a large number uf Judgments for thin thing. Aid. Pearson*-That *bow* your Inspectors arc worthless. (Applause.! Aid. Hildreth—l am In favor of having aomo of this work done by the polices but when a police man 1* discharged for being off bis beat, It lays ll open for him lossy that he went to look after a sidewalk. Thi" would break up all discipline in the force. Ifiho police would report at tho sta tions whenever they saw a bad sidewalk, Ihl* might bo reported to the head o! the Department. The West bide needs mure men than are assigned to it, and I move (hat the report be recommitted for further advisement. . A . . _ Aid. MoAulcy—As chairman of that Committee 1 must say that we have FULI.V CONSIUBIIED TUB UATTBIt and have consulted with tbo Police Department, and we find that (be policeman who Is always oo hi* Lent can do the work better than the Inspector*. A policeman can always be found white an insptc- (to Aid. McAuley)—Did you in vestigate as to the practice in a case where the owner la a non-resident, and have you fixed upon the manner of assessment In such case*! Aid. McAuley (to Aid. Hildreth)—Did the lu -1 spectors attend lo that? . , Aid. Hildreth—They have been compelled lo find out the owner* ana serve tbe notices, Aid. McAuley—Wo don’t propose lo take away the head, and there are men enough in the Public Works lo serve those notice*. Aid. While—There are no people at work for Chicago who cannot be spared betiir than these men. They have from (10 lo 114 miles each to travel over, and they are com pelled to hunt through tho record* to'find out who I* responsible for broken sidewalk#. There 1* no law to compel a man lo repair hi* sidewalk. The Court* have held that this property mioog* to tbe city, and the city la responsible. Aid. Lawler opposed putting too much on the police, and then cutting down their pay. If there was to be any cutting down, let It bscln at the Mayor’s salary and couiu down, not at the loot of the ladder. , , _ Aid. Aldrich moved the previous qoeitlou. Car- The vote was taken on Aid.

M. gpfetat tUtpatch (« The Tribune. Wabitisimtox, la., June 7.—The annual stock holders’ meeting of tho Keokuk, lowa City & Min nesota Railroad Company occurred here to-day. This Company waa organized several years ago, and the grading of nearly the whole line from Keo kuk to lowa City was also done several years since by Individual stock subscription. A greater por tion tif the bridging was also done afterward. Honda were Issued at the rate of $20,000 per mile, and placed upon the London market by one Crowell, of New York. Blatters have dragged along until now, and there was great dissatisfac tion among stockholders in relation to the man agement of affairs by the I’rcsldent, George J. Dual. • To-day the meeting was attended by men who were determined to have a change In management, and thoroughly Investigate the financial condition o! the Company. D. Campbell, of Blount Pleasant, was chosen President of the stockholders’ meeting, and-I. 11. Anderson, of Keokuk, Secretary. The President of the road was called upon to make a statement of the condition of the Company’s affairs, hut said ho could not add to what he had already said in his printed report, made some weeks sgo, which was very unsatisfactory. Idic following gentlemen were elected Directors: Edward Johnston and William Leighton, of Keo kuk; Daniel Campbell and F. Saunders, of Mount Pleasant; J. 11. Wilson and John Graham, of Washington; Ezekiel Clark and O. .1. Boa), of lowa City; and Adam Perry, of Linn County. Edward Johnston offered resolutions, which were adopted, appointing a Committee of six competent stockholders to make a full and thorough investi gation of the lioaiidat condition of the Company, and set forth In the proper order for what services money baa been expended; also to investigate tho present statue of tne flrst-murtgsge bonds, now supposed to be In the hands of aomc banking-house In London, what lien* ate upon them, what amount sold or hypothecated, and whut amount it will require to secure them, and the host proceeding to secure tliefr re torn Into the posses ion of the Company. This Com mittee Is ’iutuorlzed to examine nooks, papers, etc., and examine witnesses, and arc required to report to the Board of Directors in thirty nays. The now Board of Directors organized by elect ing William Leighton, an able and experienced railroad maaof Keokuk. President; EzraUd Clark, of lowa City, Vice-President; and George U. Rod man, of Washington, Secretary. A Treasurer is to be chosen at a subsequent meet ing. With this new deal in the management of the affairs of this Company new life is Infused, and there la a probability of an early com pletion of the lino from Keokuk to lowa Kir The St. Louie, Keokuk A Northwestern Company have made a proposition to iron, build depots, and operate the line if this new Board will flnleh thegradmg, tielng, and bridging. The line is eventually to connect St. Louis with the North* ern Pacific at some point In Minnesota. C. C. WHEELER Mr. C. C. Wheeler, the able General Freight Agent of the Michigan Central Railroad, has re signed his position to accept the office of Assistant General Manager of the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad. By the resignation of Mr. Wheeler the Michigan Central suffers a loss which It cannot easily repair. Mr. Wheeler is the Nestorof General Freight Agents In this city, and hears the reputa tion of being one of the squares! and ablest in the country. When Mr. Strong resigned the position of General Superintendent of the Michigan Central, it was strongly urged upon Mr. Jot, the President of the road, to appoint Mr. Wheeler in his plat e, for lie was thought to be pecaliarly fitted for the position, lint somehow or other the position was bestowed upon Mr, Ledyard, the then Assistant General Superintendent. It is not yet known who UKee Mr. Wheeler’s place on the Michigan Central. For the present Mr. J. A. Grier, the Assistant General Freight Agent, will act as General Freight Agent. It is understood that the Company finds it has mode a mistake in removing the headquarters of the Hoad to De troit, and that General Superintendent Ledyard will shortly remove to this city. The appointment of Mr. B. C. Brown as Assistant General Superin tendent. with headquarters at Jackson, seems to confirm this rumor. The Chicago & Northwestern Railroad can con* crntulate Itself on having secured the services of Mr. C. C. Wheeler, who Is eminently nullified to t>crform the duties of the ofllce to which he has lecn Appointed. He Ims been Superintendent of the Milwaukee Division and afterward General Freight Ace/U of the Hoad for more than twenty years, ami only left about two years ago to accept the brilliant olicr made to him by the Michigan Central.
