Burbank, Allas Dainty, and Miss Strung, of St, Louis. Tho Burr Industrial School will provide tho entertain ment for the evening, and John Hand’s orchestra will be In attendance. The error (n announcing Mies K. A. Jewett ns one of the vocalists at the re ception at the Home for the Friendless to-day ua Mrs. Magnusson Jewett arose from wrong infor mation given undcslgncdly to tho Committee who made the announcements, and for which Mrs. Jew ett Is In no way responsible.

The monthly re ports of Matron, Solicitor, and Treasurer were read and accepted. Mrs. Macdonald and Mn. Irvin were appointed to attend to needful changes In the diet of the Inmates.

In* eluding member# of the Western Electric liana* lecturing Company, the Western Union Telegraph Company, tho Atlantic & pacific Telegraph Coin* pany, the different railroad companies, and of the various Institutions of an eltctrlcal character, pur* Fiose organizing a local electrical encloly this even pg at 7:30 o’clock In lluom hr Union llulldlng. The undertaking merit# every success. It is nnr prlslng that an art so intimately interwoven with our commercial and social should have had for so long a lime no central point in Chicago where the science of electricity was unfurled and Its various points submitted to tb« crucible of Intelligent and friendly discus sion. The American Electrical Society Is seeking to meet the necessity of the times In the promotion of electrical science, but the alms of this Society are of national dlmensiina, and Its operations are too unwieldy for the dirv.t good of the profession located in any partlculai place. Tbo necessity of a local society Is obvious. S’curly 1,000 intelligent citizens of this city ore en gaged either In manufacturing or manipulating the many appliances of one of the greatest of civiliz ing sciences. The proposed local society Is ex pected to embody the principles of a school where Its members may bo educated In both the rudi mental and the advanced grades and to establish a trading-room and laboratory to which Us members rosy resort at any time for quiet research awl ex periment. Periodical meetings will be held for rending original and other papers, etc. TUB EOLICB MAUISTIUTB QUESTION. This question, thought to be dead, again shows signs of great vitality. Outhberthsun, of the Town of North Chicago, claimed to be elected,—had a certificate from the Town Clerk that be was elected, —made his official oath and offered bis official bond to County Clerk Licb. The Clerk did not object to the bond on account of Its insufficiency, but merely that he bad a doubt as to the existence of the offfec. However, be said be would submit the question to the Attorncy-Ucnera), and abide by tbe opinion of that official, who decided adversely to Cuthbertson. Culhbertson was waiting for developments. Ho contemplated putting out bis shingle and to act In the capacity to which he bad been elected, and let those who thought they had the power remove him, If they could, by quo warranto, mandamus, or any other of the fashionable remedies. It now appears that Lfeb has sent fur Cuthbersou, and notified him that be Is ready to receive and approve bis bond. THE COIiX/EGB OB IsAW. CLOSING EXAMINATIONS.

T.ho clilcf topic of discussion yesterday at t’flc City-Hall imd elsewhere was the quo war fanto proceeding started in the Criminal Court. The following loiter addressed by Colvin's law vers to Mr. Hoyne’s counsel shows what they claim to wish to accomplish by the move: “CinrA«o. June?.—JffjMn*. A, 11. Horton, M. F. Tulty, it, IT. Fullrr, anil./, .V, Jnfftl— Ui:«- tlkmt.n : As nn Introduction to Dio proposition now made, wo recite certain facts already known to you. ••When the agreement was made at the Pacific Hotel, by Messrs. Iloym* and Colvin, to submit Dio question In regard to the Mayoralty to one of the 1 courts of tide county. It was stipulated 1 that the Judgment hero should hn flool, { but afterwards, when it was reduced to \ writing. Dirt jvirt of the agreement was omitted at 1 your rennet. On the next day we applied to yon | to stipulate that In case either parly wished to have the case reviewed by the Supreme Court. 11 should be dime at the June term, but you declined to make suctaim agreement. On Inst .Saturday the application to maku such astipulation was re newed to >ir. Horton, but be declined to do so without consultation with his associates; no fur ther answer w»» received. After the decision was rendered! on Monday you met us by invitation, whenwa inquired If the case would bo taken to the tjupremo Court, and requested that St be. taken to the term now in aesslun, if you carried the ca*c up. You wore unable to answer at that lime, and It was | 1 agrv-cd between us that an answer should be sent to Mr. Gundy by 4 o’clock In tho afternoon. Nona wus sent or received. At 0 o'clock on Tuesday, Mr. (Joiidy called at Sir. Fuller’s olhce to ienru i the conclusion reached, and was Informed that no decision had been made. • • It la proper to say, however, that some of you have said, on more than one occasion, that Mr. lloync did not i>er»onatli/ care to go to the Sn preine Court, and would acquiesce in the decision, but, ut tho same time, we were made to under* Hlnud that his personal wishes might nut control. •*As the law gives the right to appeal at any time before the Ihlh Inst, to the term to be held next September, and if tills right was exercised a decision could not be obtained before November, leaving the city In Its present embarrassed condi tion meanwhile, and you would not waive that rigid, the only course left to obtain a speedy set tlement of the pending questions was to have a pro forma judgment entered la the Criminal Court, and the record curried to tho Supreme Court now Billing at MU Vernon. Such a Judgment was ren dered yesterday In a case of The People on tho re lation of Steel vb. Colvin, and a copy of the record is now in tbo possession of the rclator'a attorneys. “Mr. Colvin Is entirely contented with the de cision and Judgment of the Circuit Court, and does not care to protract the litigation. Wo arc author ized to soy that tho record of tin* owe In the Crim inal Court will nut be tiled at Mount Vernon If Mr. lloyne will v/aivo the right of appeal to the Sep tember term. If auch waiver Is not made, weuro authorized by the counsel for the relator (In which we Join) to invite you to appear and argue tho case in the Supreme Court at the preaent term. If, for any reason, you prefer the record of the case decided by the Circuit, Judge®. that may be used instead of tho record of the ease in thu Crim inal CourU Itcspectfully your?, “W. C. OofDT, “EontuT Jamieson, - “J. I*. Koot.” The letter did not seem to create much ex citement among the gentlemen to whom it was directed. Mr. Horton pronounced Its state ments to thu effect that he promised an answer to a curtain communication at u specified time, wholly untrue, and Mr. lloync laughed at It us a piece of buncombuunworthyof attention. Mr. Jewett saya he shall not -answer It, ami Messrs. Hoyno and Horton express an intention of wholly disregarding It- As to any appeal, all hands scout the Idea. They agreed to abide by the decision of thu Circuit Court, and they now intend to abide by that agreement. Mr, lloyne says he has no occasion to go to tbeSuoremo Court, and Messrs. Jewett and Horton nay they will nut taka the case up. MR. TULCT, A reporter also saw Mr. M. F. Tuley on the same subject. That gentleman said: ** This Is the tint I have seen of this letter, I can only say generally that the pretended recitals of facts are nut the facts as I understand them. I was under the impression that it was no part of the duty of Mr. Ifoync's attorneys to make any stipu lation as to Mr. Hoyne's appealing the case In the Circuit Court if the decision went against him. Therefore, we declined to stipulate In that regard. Waving Mr. Iloyne to act os ho thought proper in event of such a result. A stipulation that (lie decision should bo final could not have precluded either party from taking nn appeal. , I understood from Mr. Iloyne at thutlmuthestipulb tion was made, and at all times since, that it he was beaten In the Circuit Court he would not ap- Seal, and 1 believe that Mr. Colvin’s attorneys also ave understood that lo be Mr. Hoyne’s position. “ 1 think after counsel have secretly gotten up a so-called quo warranto case at the suit of one of Mr. Colvin's friends, mak ing up the record without consulting the attorneys of Mr. Uoyne. land alter Judgment entered in favor of Mr. Colvin, that there is a good deal of cheek In making us the proposition to go to tbo Supreme Court and argue the case thus pre pared in the Interest of Mr. Colvin. •* Mr. (iondy and the other attorneys well know that the appeal In the Steel quo warranto cannot even by consent be argued upon the record In the Colvin quo warranto of the Circuit Court. There has been entirely too much letter-writing by re asnectablo attorneys for newspaper publication in this Mayor's contest. ‘ 'As to the record In the tiled quo warrantocaae, I can only suy this much, that ‘•A'lnif—lt does not fairly state Mr.Hoyne’s side of the case, ami no friend ot Mr. Hoyne's could over have suggested that he rest Ids case on any such facts in regard to his election us are set out In those pleadings; and I think It isappurent that Mr. James tiled's attorneys In that case did not intend in set out Mr. Hoyne's case as strongly as the wcll-rccog nlzed facts attending his election would warrant. “ Second—' Thu record in the Steel quo warranto does not raise me question whether or nut Mr. Col vin has the right to hold until 1H77, and that point cannot he decided miles* the Supreme Court goes beyond the record lu decide it. I can see no object tone gained by submitting only (ho same questions to the tiuprcino Court that have been de cided by the Circuit Court If Mr. Hoyne I* willing, as I understand ho is, to abide by the judgment of the Circuit Court. I think the case gotten up by the tiled quo warranto case Is un Imposition upon the Supreme Court, and should bo dfemlieed by that Court upon motion so lo do. Any case of quo watmnto gotten up In (he Interest ami at the Instigation ui a person holding the office should not b« heard In vim Supreme Court, and I think will nut, if the Comt {» Infonued of such fact." WHAT fITBBL WANTau, Yesterday afternoon a Tiuhcsk reporter called upon .Mr. James Steel at bis olllci-, Uuont 4, Hd LaSalle street, hi order to obtain from bhu some further Information as to bis reasons for bringing sit agreed case to test the Mayoralty question, or why Colvin pretends to hold on. Said the reporter: “Mr. Ktcel, what reasons bad you fur bringing such u case?" “The reasons are stated In tho bill which I filed Tuesday In the Criminal Court." “Had you no others? ” “Tho bill stated the case." “Was It not an agreement between you and Mr. Colvin that you should bring this suit! 1 ' “No. sir, 1 can't say that U was. There might have been wbat may be termed an understanding. l ' “Was nut its real purpose to thwart Iks calling of a special election?' 1 “No. sir. U was not. I brought the suit lu order to prevent an appeal from the other side. I merely acted as u citizen, and because 1 understood that Mr. Colvin’s lawyers were going to bring Just such uo action If 1 bad nut done so. " • • Hut, sir, was the whole thing not In the Inter est of Mr. Colvin. Was it not lu thwurt the result of a special election If one Is called by the Council, by tying the mutter up in thu Supreme Court ? 11 “It was not. Mr. Colvin told me that if tht-ro was disaffection in the Council and a special elec tion was ordered, and another man elected, ho would yield the olllco on sight. '• 11 Then what would bo the use of such an action as you brought ? u “Ism Interested with my flrm-Kieel & McMa hon—ln city certificates, and 1 want to find out who Is Mayor, so wo can know when we are going to get our money,—whether iuoue, three, or four t “Uut how will tbo suit decide It!

COLVIN'S APPEAL to the Supremo Court for a continuance In ofllco as Mayor of Chicago excites no little attention among the thinking men Interested in municipal affairs. It was freely discussed si the Clty-llsll yesterday. By the deceut people It was regarded aa s violation or good faith and a false aad partial representation of fa A* concocted by Colvin’* otlorney* ami cimcl Jed over ns a piece of the greatest smartness and ihfewd mnnlpnlAtlon. Corporat'ou-t’oimsel Anthony fnnnd lime to ox- press nn opinion on the matter, which was any thing hut complimvntarv cither to tho action nr (he ptlnclpatsof the net. lie thought that something would and should ho done to get a correct ropre sciitatloii of the case before the Supremo Court. CITT-ATTOKNBT TUTU ILL said that the Supreme Court would take a great responsibility In deciding tho case outside the record. Hr denounced the scheme as a dirty piece of work, and thought that the Judges of the Su premo Bench would throw out the ease altogether. As for .fudge Dickey, whom the Colvlnltcs relied upon, he thought that he would not he a party to any such work. Hu had too high an opinion of the gentleman. NUNC I*llo TUNC. 7* the Minor <\f The Tribune. Crurano, June 7. —lf the newspaper report* are correct, it would appear that a quo warranto pro ceeding was brought yesterday, Juno (3, In (he Criminal Court against 11. D. Colvin, tho Mayor, whereupon Ihe judgment was entered, hy tho order of the Coart. ns If the same had been rendered on (he 20(h day of May, “nunc pro tunc," a day on which uo such proceeding was pending In Court. Now, do not be afraid that I will enter upon a learned legal disquisition nn tho meaning of tho mysterious wards, “nunc pro tunc." I will only trv to explain to the common understanding of our citizens what that phrase means. If there Is a case pending in a court, it la not only tho parties liti gant that have their say. They may he through will) everything on their part, and still no decision may have been reached by thaContl. The matter then rests In the breast of the Court, and final ac tion may be delayed for a considerable time by tho Judge, with or without his fault, to the damage of one or the other of the parlies. or tho Clerk of tho (,'ouit may have neglected to make the proper entry of n Judgment Hint has been rendered. Now. there is a maxim that a delay of tho court shall prejudice no one. In both eases* It would scent to bo but fair that whenever tho Court renders Its decision or the Cleric lias been forced to perform hla duly, (tint the entries should be ordered to be made as of the date when the Judgment should In the first In stance have been rendered, or when the Clerk should have performed his act. This would have the eilcct (o tlx the rights of tho parties as of such formerdute, thereat date from which they would have become llxed bad it not been for th« delay of tho Court or the mistake of the Clerk. Such an order is said to be an order “nunc pro tunc." This Is one of the remedies of the luw against Its own delays: It is never one of tho remedies of the parties against their de lavs. In the quo-warrnnto case above referred to, (here was no case pending In court on the 2(Uh day of May last, and the Court ought not to stulti fy Uaelf by admitting through Its order “nunc pro time." that it had neglected or delayed to give judgment In a case on the ‘Jdth of May which was noievcn pending In court, and of which It had no knowledge until June 0. The order is n falsification of facts. A Court may Just as well order a judgment to be entered as of Jan. 1, 1872, that Colvin was Mayor onjlhut day, upon proceedings filed to-day. A. T. Stewart’s will could easily be disposed of by an order of the Court that the probate proceedings In regard to his estate bo culered on record as of Jan. 1. 1871), long prior to his having made a will. Such orders would be exceedingly convenient in cases of divorce, and those Involving the date of birth of children, etc. Sncii entries, if they were permitted, would bo of Incalculable mischief, and might be In the prcstMit case if allowed to stand. If the Supreme Court should aliirm the Judgment of tho Criminal Coart, it would stand nillrmed as of May SB, 1870, which would bo equal to u lindlng that Mr. Colvin exer cised tho otllcu of Mayor of Chicago on the 20th day of May, 1870. while It was Mr. Hoyno who was do facto Mayor of tho city on that day. They would thereby decide a question not at all before them. Wo can imagine a good many other complications ttiat might result from the uctlon of the Court In the premises. It Is quite plain that the Court had no Jurisdiction of the par ticular subject-matter on the 2(Jth day of May lust, and while parties muy, as a rule, subject them selves by consent to the Jurisdiction of the Court, they cannot deal as freely with Jurisdiction over the snbject-nmucr. Do yon not think this whole matter ought to be brought to tho attention of Judge Moore, and in what way would you propose that it should be done? Respectfully, Julius Rosentual. THE QUO WAItItANTO. 7b the Sdllor nf The Tribune, CmcAQo, dune 7.—Dy the law of the State, a Judgment entered less tlmn ten days before tho silting of the Court cannot be appealed to the next term. Hence tho accommodating lawyers on cither side In the Colvin quo warranto case agreed that everything—flllngof papers, clutcof judgment, etc. -should be entered ns of May 2d, for tho reason that tho term of the Supreme Court at Ml. Vernon commenced yesterday. Now, a most glaring fraud has been perpetrated, and I am surprised that Judge Moore permitted his Court thus to hu used. Hut the whole thing In illegal, nnd the Supreme Court would dismiss the appeal on motion, If any one would make St. A Court can never date its Judgment hack, except where for some reason the entry of the judgment should have been made in a cause then pending, hut for some good reason was not done. In Gray vs. Hrignardclls, 1 Wall. (127, Mr. Justice Davis, of tho Huprumo Court of tho United States, said: "Amine pro tunc order In always admissible when tho delay has arisen from (he act of the Court," and the Court held in that casn that it could not he done when tho Court did not have tho matter before It at thnt time. It Is a perfect fraud, and Judge Moore should Imvo the judgment net aside upon Ida own motion, for evidently be permitted the entry without duo consideration- Too author of Freeman on Judg ments, Hoc. , r i7, says, quollngfrom the language of the courts: • ‘The rule that no judgment would be or* dored entered nunc pro tuc, except fur delay of the Court, admitted of no exceptions In theory, and was so constantly observed In practice that ono of tho Judges remarked that be had never known of its violation during his experience, extending at Bar and Bench over n period of forty years.” \\ hat may we not expect from Goudy, Hoot, and Colvin? Lawyer. THE SITUATION. WHAT COLVIN BAYB. Matters about tho Clty*Hnll yesterday were quiet—remarkably so. The Acting-Mayor was on deck nearly all day, and entertained his friends with grace, and his opponents with dis dain. During the afternoon a Tbibunb re porter entered tho Mayor’s sanctum. An Inter' Ocean scribe was calmly perusing u copy of his journal, and dilating upon his own report of an Interview with Mr. Colvin, which he (the re porter) regarded as the acme of his fame and bliss. Near tho Mayor sat two Staait-Xeitumj reporters, holding sweet communion over a copy of the Juurwu. The conversation lagging, tho industrious Tiukunu man chimed In us follows: “ Mr. Mayor, are you going to reinstate the Board of Health I” “ Young man, If any one asks you, tell him you don't know.” What are you doing to pay off tho city em ployes?" •• Are you ono of them?” “ No, Hr, hut I’m interested.” -• *• Row?” ‘ 4 As a citizen, and lam seeking Information for TlißTiumrNß.” ••What Interest baa Tub Tiiidumb in the pay ment of the city employes?” “The same as any other citizen. It want) to boo these noor men pulii. ” At this stage ono of tho Staate-ZtUung reporters elated there was fearful suffering among the mon, when the Mayor said, “I know it, 1 know It— fearful suffering,” and Immediately started fora brief meditation In communion with MU. lIAYKH. Yesterday morning a Tiudonb reporter took a look In upon Mr. Hayes to seo what be was doing, lit: said that no action bud yet been taken by him looking to paying thu city employes, butaomethlng would have to bu done soon.

This wue all Mike Halley had to say, and that hu was content to have out his lines in pleasant waters. Kin. HOVNC, and I)r. McVlckar, and Mark Sheridan had n short conversation In the City Clerk's olllco yesterday morning, during which Mr. lluyne expressed him self freely In regard to tho Circuit Judges. Ho said, also, that his next message would not be to the Council, hut to tho people, and that he would give them some secrets worth knowing. COMI’TUOU.Ktt URRICKSO.V. About 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon Mr. J(. p. Derlckson, the period of live days' grace given to Mr. Hayes having expired, mode another demand upon Mr. Ilayim for poisesnhm of the olhea of Comptroller, which that ucnllermo refused to yield, on the ground that Mr. Iferlckson was nut legally appointed, and consequently nut his (Hayes') successor. Mr. Hayes wants Mr. Derick son to go to lh« courts If he wants the office. Yes terday afternoon Mr. Derlckson, after Mr. Hayes had refused him possession, penned the following communication to tho Finance Committee of the Council: "Ciiii'aoo, JMn07, 187(1. Tht HonE.

ATumUNB reporter in his wanderings last night happened to meet one of the members of the Council, who waa returning home from the Aldcrmunlc meeting, and a short conversation ensued. Tho Alderman, It may be said, Is one of the loading spirits In the Council, and has been connected with every good movemerft of that body since Its entry Ifito ofliec. Being per* fcctly sure of what he says, his statements given here am be received with full assurance that they are correct. Having Just Inquired of the reporter what paper he was connected with, and having complimented Tub Tiubu.ve by saying (bat It “got things right," be began to say, In reply to an interrogation: “You sco, the Connell has Just done a good thing with these Sidewalk Inspectors, and farther actions of that kind ore to follow. There ere some employes of the Board of Public Works, I don’t know exactly how many, but they must be re moved. That will be attended to at onr next meeting. Then there aro too many clerks. Now, I will wager that in any of the larger banks In this city, where there are, say, twenty clerks, there aro morn M's* dolled, more *l'a* crossed, more words written, and, In short, more work done than by the whole City-Hall force. You see It Is nearly 10 o'clock lu tho morning before anything cun be done, and tho oOlcos are closed at 4 o'clock. Now, that's no way to do business. No man’s private business Is run In that way, and the city’s should not be.

It ia a shame that the Department la left. It ta Colvin’s work, 1 suppose, but 1 don’t know what ids reasons arc for keeping that useless branch of the Government.’’ cmr EMPLOYES. "Alderman, what do you think abontthe pay* mentof the city employes?" "Well, there In SoOO. 000 In the City Treasury. We have been trying, at least we so desire, to got that money to pay our teachers, firemen, police men, clerks, and others. It would square tno ac count to about April 1. That would be a great thing for the employe#, and I think for the credit of tno city. lllit there Is such a muddle that I don’t nco what we will do. I Jinow thnt Colvin ta Mayor now, and Dan O’Hara is Treasurer. Hut the Comptrollcrahlp la in a state of confusion, and since tho money has to bet drawn by ordcr of the Comptroller, it looks like a hopeless task. There la a long line of red tape about it. I guess nothing will be dune till the settlement of the Haycs-Dcr ickson dlfllculty." " Hut," asked the interviewer, "haa tho Conn ell no power to order and command action on the part or the Comptroller?" That was something thnt the Alderman answered rather indefinitely, and began to state the necessity of doing something for its laborers. lie had loan ed sums of money to various persons to keep them afloat, nnd his friends had done tho same. All the city help worn being carried along, audit was too bad Hist such t state of allslrs had come about. Meanwhile all would be done by the Finance Com mittee to relieve (he wants of the employes. The chief thing to be obtained was peace. Then money could be talked about. After a few further questions which did not ellc* It any Information a« to the financial outlook be* yond that which waa aomo time ago published, the reporter withdrew. PROSPECTIVE CANDIDATES. TUB MAYORALTY CANVASS, though the term may bo a abort one, and the election not take place until the middle of next month, is already looming up, and a groat deal of Interest is being taken in the matter. The Municipal Reform Club intend to take up the question, and support only the very best and strongest men os regards etandingand Integrity.

The City Law Department has no connection with Col vin's Law Department. Tho Finance Committee bold a session yesterday afternoon In tho onto-room of the Council Cham ber, and, according to Aid.

Eyes and cars were wide open yesterday to catch tho slightest Indications of further dccopltatlons, hut no such action wos noticed. The Council, It Is said, will acquiesce in no act of Colvin’s, and his removals will amount to naught butatemnorary release from duty fur tho persons so removed. Et-Mayor Hoynn paid a short visit to the scene of his former and brief greatness as Head Magis trate of Chicago yesterday morning. As might be expected, he was not slow to give hie idea of the decision and the changes since then. Ills estima tion of the Judges who decided against him is not great.

There Is no work being done, and a temporary holiday Is being en joyed. Mr. PrlndlvlU? ami the others bate their bonds all ready, the same names being attached that were on tho old ones. If tho bonds are ap proved by tho Council Monday, affairs will progress as before the removal. Some Aldermen may be silly enough to postpone such action, but It is considered improbable. The Board of Public Works yesterday received a letter from Mr. Haxclton, who proposes to save tho city SIOO per day by applying at the Water works his patent process for decomposing water, and burning the gases in connection with coal. He stipulates that hr must have the selection of tho firemen and control of the boiler-room, and agrees to give a bond of $50,000 that ho will save the city the sum above mentioned. Mr. Prtn dlville states that, of course, a test of the Invention will have to be made before its merits can he passed upon. It may bo a good thing; Mr. Waul said so, and ho ought to know, but there was no use In talking about giving any man, except the proper officer of the city, the control of any part of the Water-Works.

TUG GERMAN ALDERMEN. To the Editor of The Tribunt. Chicago. June?.—'The hardest tank of the pat* riot !■ to Ignore the claims of party, and this it made still harder hy the prejudice aroused by na tionality. The Germans in the City Connell have made the most determined efforts to act for the city, and in return for their really patriotic inten tions they And themselves subjected to all manner of misrepresentation by the Slaatt-Zellung. They are accused of selling out tho Interests of Germans, and being influenced by the flattery and line words of native Americans. You can readily understand how powerful such arguments (?) as these most bo among some Germans: but for the credit of tho great majority of tho Germans who have made America their adopted country, 1 do not think that such transparent tricks can be successful. If tho Common Council docs anything wrong, the matter should bo dlscnsscd on its merits; anil if the Utaalt-Zellung, instead of confining Its remarks to pure discussion, goes beyond this and makes its appeal to the preju dices of race, it must certainly lose the influence which It has hitherto wielded among tho most In* tolUgcnt Germans of Chicago. The City Council bos commenced its work of reform with patriotic intention and substantial success. It is not ex pected that it will bo free from mistakes, but it is doing a good work, and ie cutting down tho ex penses of the city and saving a large amount of money which has been wasted. The German Aldermen hove assisted in this work, and propose to continue In their opposition to thieves and dead beats, and are not to no turned aside by the inflam matory appeals in the HlaaU’Zeltmirf to the preju dices of race. Only two classes of persons appeal to tho antip athies of race,—they are demagogues and bigots; and If the Slaatt-Zeltung is unable to cast aside its bigotry and folly, it must forever lose its standing among Intelligent Germans. 1 think lam safe in saying that the most intelligent Germans are more free from the bigotry of race than any other civil ized people; they arc less influenced by the argu mcnlura ad homfnem, and are more free to recog nize merit irrespective of nationality than other people; and If the StaalfZeUung wishes to earn and deserve the contempt of its intelligent readers it will certainly obtain it by its present con temptible course.

THE APOLLO CLUB CONCEHT, That tho deserved testimonial concert to Mr, Tomlins to-night has aroused an Interest that htt not been excited by any musical event during tbs past season, Is evidenced by the extraordinary ad* vance sale of scats. Unquestionably this Is larceli duo to tho popular price of tho tickets in propor tion to the attractions offered—such stars as carl and Milts not often being found to twinkle for the small Inducement of a dollar. It Is apparent, how ever, that tho chief Interest centres in tho choral numbers which will introduce Mr. Tomlins to tl<« (iibllc In a now character as a conductor, and tc« la ability oa a leader of a mixed chorus. If in equals tne expectations formed of him, U '« nut too much to expect that his success will raise a standard of choral mnslcwhtch will advance the art to a higher perfection than it has yet attaint ed In this city. The programme'has been admira bly arronged W dlsnlny all the qualities of an ex acting nature whlih it is possible to demand oft mixed chorus, and tho only doubt Is whether ft many varieties of choral singing can be well dom by a chorus which has been in drill for such a shell time as the one which has volunteered to assist Mr. Tomlins. It will have a superb audience to ex hibit before, Judging from the appearance of ihi “box sheet.” although many good scatsyet re main, and It Is the purpose of the managenenf to put In several hundred extra chairs In cho>:i locutions In tho hall, which will nut he reserved ai all, but may bo occupied by those who arc fortu nate enough to arrive early, so no one wanting M hear the concert need remain away, for even nftej the regular scaling capacity of McCormick Hall Ii sold room for nearly A thousand more people caa he provided. The programme—lncluding eight mixed choruses,. two male choruses, and one female chorus, beside two numbers by Cary ant five numbers by Mills—has already been given, and 1s worthy the occasion. To prevent contusion In seating the audience, those holding cuupoi tickets In sections A, U. F arc rcqncatcdto entet by the north entrance to the hall; those In G to U by the south entrance.
