A stated meeting of the city councils
was held last evening.
The following members were present :
Messrs. Bering, Deerr, Eberly, Franklin,
Judith, Sales, Zccher and Evans, presi
dent. The lcpert of the city treasurer and re
ceiver of taxes for the past month was pre
sented and read. It shows the receipts for

expenditures $3,262.77, and the balance in

Oct. C, 18S0.
Te the Honorable Select ami Common Councils
efthCfCity of Lancaster :
Gentlemen : Fer your information and
action I lay before you a list of suits
brought by the several plaintiffs named
against the city of Lancaster. The list
does net include the suit of Mrs. Kissinger
vs. the city, lately decided in ourceurt"of
common pleas against the city with dam
ages in $1,000, and cestr. There seems te
be no ground for appeal in any of these
cases except the last ene for the reason
that the contracts upon which the claims
arc based, were made while the appropria
tion was geed and sufficient. Councils
will plcase instruct the solicitor what te
de, as the appeal day will have expired be
fore next meeting of councils.
Very respectfully yours
Jehn T. MacGenigle
Here fellows a communication from the
city solicitor containing a list of suits pend
ing against the city. The list embraces five
suits by Jehn It. Smith, Davis Kilch and
Henry Shaub ; three suits by P.S. McTaguc;
two suits by Samuel Rcsli, for the use of
E. II. Kauffman, all of which- have been
brought in the court of common pleas ;
and the following brought before aldermen
who have entered judgment against the
city; one suit each by Jehn Weunan, Alex
ander Harris's use, and Jehn A. Sieglcr.
On motion of Mr. Zecher $7,45 was re
funded Mr. Rewe for ever-paid water rent,
and $84.85 were ordered te be paid Allen
A. Heir and ethers for balance due or city
survey. Common council concurred.
Mr. Zccher moved that $3,000 of the
contingent fund be transferred te the water
fund. He argued that this amount would
be necessary te keep the water department
in geed running order, there being a num
ber of unpaid bills and the cost of coal
for running the engine being heavy, owing
te the unusually low water in the creek.
On motion of Mr. Bering, the matter
was laid ever for one month.
Councils proceeded te elect a member te
fill the vacancy caused by the death of
Maj. H. W. Shenk, of the Third ward.
Adam It. Barr and Jehn W. Mcutzcr were
nominated, and a vete being taken, Mr.
Barr was elected, he receiving the votes
of Messrs. Bering, Eberly, Judith, Sales,
Zccher and Evans, president. Messrs.
Deerr and Franklin voted for Mr. Mcntzer.
The ordinauce requiring property own
ers te set curbstones of granite seven
inches thick and net less than live feet
long and twenty inches deep, which passed
common council last month, was taken up
and passed, all the members voting for it
except Messrs. Eberly and Judith.
The ordinance introduced June 2, re
ferred te committee and reported back
September 7, was taken up, read a second
and third time and passed unanimously,
after striking out the prevision requiring
the renters of stalls te give security for
the payment of the rent.
Mr. Eberly, from the special committee,
appointed te make a thorough examina
tion of the accounts of the city treasurer
and receiver of taxes, and of the funds in
the treasury, reported as fellows :
Te the Honorable Select ami Common Council
of the City of Lancaster :
Your committee appointed at May meet
ing of councils te make a thorough exam
ination of the accounts of the city treas
urer and receiver of taxes, and of the funds
in the treasury, and report the same te
councils, respectfully report .
The committee met in select council
chamber July 10, 18S0. Present, Messrs.
Barnes, McMullcn, Eberly and Evans. On
motion Robt. A. Evans was elected chair
man and Jacob K. Barr secretary.
Your committee thought it advisable, as
they had net the time te make the thor
ough examination required under the
resolution, te select a competent acconnt accennt
ant te perform the duty required. Accord
ingly they elected Mr. Jeseph Clarksen te
make the examination. The treasurer net
keeping the books and accounts as requir
ed by law necessitated the delay, by caus
ing double the time te verify the different
accounts. The law requires the city treas
urer te keep a distinct and separate
account in a book opened for that purpose
of all bends and moneys belonging te the
sinking fund, and at least twice iu each
year he shall present te councils a distinct
and separate statement of the condition
and increase of said fund. The treasurer
keeps no book of the kind, nor makes the
statement required. Again, councils an
nually, as requited by law, assesses a
separate tax en all property taxable for
city purposes for the payment of the in
terest and principal of city leans. The law
requires said tax when when collected te
be kept separate by the city treasurer, and
applied by him te no ether purpose. The
city treasurer keeps no separate account
as required by law, but used the said fund
for ether purposes ; thereby the sinking
fund has lest thousands.
The result of the examination made by
Mr. Clarksen is herewith submitted te
councils as part of this report, showing
the city treasurer te be indebted te the
, city twenty-three hundred and seventeen

The undersigned, te whom was referred
by your committee the accounts of Ed
ward "Welchans, city treasurer, for three
years and seven months, ending with the
fiscal year 1879, respectfully reports :
That he has examined the books for the
collection of water rents and city taxes for
the years 1877, 1878 and 1879, and
settled them by verifying all addi
tions of columns and totals, and
making corrections, and taking off the
abatement allowed for prompt payment,
exoncratiens,aud unpaid amounts, thereby
ascertaining the net amount in each book
te be accounted for by the treasurer,
and stating the account, beginning with
the sura received from his predecessor in
office, charging miscellaneous receipts
from the receipt book, and net amounts of
water rents and city taxes for each year
mentioned, together with the water rents
received during May, 1880, for said year,
and the market rents for four years, up te
June 1, 1880, making a total of receipts of
$478,101.48 for the term. The payments
during the same time wcre $438,488.00,
showing a balance due by the treasurer en
the 1st of June, 1880, of $19,C12.79, which
sum is $9SS.8e in excess of balance report

Lancaster, Oct. 2, 1S90.
Mr. Bering arose te defend Treasurer
Welchans, and avowed his belief that his
accounts would prove te be all right, and
that the report new get up against him
originated in malice. If he had defaulted
at any time duing the past three or four
years, hew did it come that the finance
committee had declared from year te year
that they had carefully examined and
audited his books and found them correct
and had se certified ever their own signa
tures? It was only after Mr. Franklin
had been defeated for the presidency of
select council and the treasurer had de
clined te deposit the city funds in a certain
banking house, that this investigation had
been started through malice. Mr. Wel
chans had followed the system of book
keeping used by his predecessors. If it
was net according te law hew did it come
that it had been approved for years, and
the accounts certified te be correct by some
of the very men who arc new hunting
down the treasurer? Mr. Bering had no
hesitation in affirming that the treasurer
would account for every dollar of the
city's money that ever came into his pos
session. He was amazed that the members
of the finance committee could se belittle
themselves as te certify te the correctness
of Mr. Welchans' account, and then sign
such a report as they had presented te
Mr. Frauklin offered the following reso
lution and moved its adoptien:
WrtEKEAS, The report of the special com
mittee appointed te make an investigation
of the accounts of the city treasurer and
receiver of taxes, shows that there is a
deficitinhis accounts of$2,317.35; therefore
Resolved, That the finance committee are
hereby instructed te demand from the city
treasurer and receiver of taxes the said
sum of $2,317.35; and if the said amount is
net promptly paid, te place the claim iu
the hands of the city solicitor for collection.
Mr. Bering seconded the resolution. He
hoped the fullest investigation would be
made, because he felt assured the treasur
er would come out all right.
The resolution was adopted and council
The following named members were
Messrs. Albert, Barnes, Bees, Bergcr,
Brown. Cermcny, Davis. Downey, Frank
lin, Hartley, Hays, Hershey, Jehnsen,
Kcclcr, Lichty, Sing, Smeych, Snyder,
Sprechcr, Springer, Stermfeltz, White,
Yackly, Levergood, president.
The minutes were read and the roll of
committees was called without eliciting
any business. Mr. Bergcr presented a pe
tition for crossings at several points en
Seuth Dnkc street in the seventh ward,
which went te the street committee, and
Mr. Jehnsen offered a resolution granting
the gas company permission te shut off the
gas at midnight for a wee!; or ten days,
in compliance with the request of that
corporation, which owing te alterations
new in progress at its works finds itself
unable te supply the demand for illumi
nating ' substance. The resolution was
adopted. Select council concurred.
Mr. Snyder offered an ordinance author
izing a temporary lean of $3,000 te pay for
laying Belgian block pavement en North
Queen street, between Orange and Chest
nut, which was referred te the finance
A long lull ensued in the proceedings,
common council settling itself down in the
expectation of important business from
select council. The strain upon the coun ceun
cilmanic patience becoming tee severe, the
clerk was dispatched te communicate the
intelligence that common council was
ready te adjourn iu the absence of busi
ness, which communication had the effect
of bringing ever a few unimportant items.
These being disposed of as reported in
select council's proceedings, common
council repeated its notice, and without
waiting for the specified ten minutes te
clapse adjourned forthwith, greatly te the
hagrin of the members of the ether

THE BUSINESS INTERESTS
WOULD NOT SUFEER OUER DEMOC
RACY. A Financier and a Statesman.
Belment't Cnenswerable Arguments.
Frem Aug. Belmont's New Tork Speech.
" The Republican press and speakers,
finding it impossible te assail the charac
ter and great moral and intellectual qual
ifications .of General Hancock, and being
equally red uccd te silence by the sound,
national and progressive principles of our
platform, are tryiug new te frighten the
American voter by conjuring up visions of
calamities land ruin which would overtake
our unhappy country if, instead of Mr.
Garfield, General Hancock, the honorable
gentleman ; soldier and statesman, should
receive the suffrages of a free and enlight
"This same game was attempted iu
1876 when, after the October elections in
Indiana, a leading Republican evening pa
per published a telegram from Washing
ton stating that the treasury department
had received advices from England te the
effect that the probability of Mr. Tilden's
election had stepped the sale of our feder
al bends iu Londen, and put a virtual end
te the progress of the funding operations
of our government. I at once declared
this a base fabrication, and denounced the
reckless partisan spirit which could trifle
with the nation's credit for selfish party
purposes, and I stated then, what I re
peat here new, that the success of the Re
publican or Democratic candidate would
net any mere affect the intrinsic and mar
ket value of our bends than the advent of
a Conservative or Liberal iniuistry iu Eng
land would jeopardize the security and
quotations of English consels. Fer mak
ing this assertion and for proving that no
such information had been leceived by the
treasury department from the syndicate
which had the sale .of our bends in Eng
land in charge, I was honored by the at
tacks of two distinguished Republican
leaders, who tried in vain te bc bc
little the untarnished geed faith and
credit of our country, the ence since
holding the first place iu the cabinet of
the present administration, and the ether
rewarded for his services in Louisiana by
the mission te Russia.. Hew far 1 was
wrong and they wcre right was cenclu
sively proved net only by the undeniable
fact that neither the secretary of the treas
ury nor any member of the syndicate had
received any such information as publish
ed in the Ecening Pest, and vouched for in
speech and letter by that truthful and dis
tinguished visiting statesman and diplo
mat, Mr. Stouuhteti, who was as reliable
in this and the returns of Louisiana as he
was subsequently in his dispatches te the
state department about the happy and
contented Russian people and their filial
love for their benevolent ruler, but also
and that is much mere te the purpose by
the fact that upon the actual election of
Mr. Tildcn, accepted and conceded by Mr.
Hayes himself en the night of the election,
our government bends were purchased
here and in Londen in large sums at fully
as high prices as they had fetched before
"Nay, meie. When the stupendous
and infamous fraud was conceived and
carried through by which the people were
robbed of their rightful choice, and when
we were pushed te the very verge of revo
lution and bloodshed, from which we were
only rescued by the patriotism and self
abnegation of the Democratic party and
its representatives in both houses of Con
gress even during all that dark period
the price of our federal bends was net
seriously affected in the money markets of
the world. And why was this ? It was
because the capitalists of both hemispheres
had learned te kuew that our government
had during a century most scrupulously
and honorably kept inviolate fts public
faith, and they remembered also that
under the Democratic administration of
General Jacksen all our bends had been
redeemed and paid off, se that the United
States government was free of debt. In
1873 wc were overtaken by a most disas
trous financial- crisis, which swept away
the fortunes of thousands, and shook te
their very foundations the soundest insti
tutions and corporations throughout the
country. A reckless spirit of overtrading
and wild speculations had been festered
after the war by an irredeemable paper
currency and by the example of lavish ex
penditure en the part of the federal and
state governments, both under the unre
strained control of the Republican party.
Every one of i;- remembers theso sad
times when the very life-springs of our
progress and prosperity seemed te have
snapped asunder. Distrust and panic took
possession of every mind, and when,
month after month and year after year,
states, corporations, banks and savings in
stitutions wcre added te the long list of
bankrupts, peer and rich alike rushed for
the bends of the federal gevcninie.it as
the only place of safety for what the
storm had left them. In Europe .'lse the
immense armaments of the great powers,
rendered necessary by the result of the
France-German war and the threatened
political complications in the East, made
English and Continental capitalists leek
towards the securities of our government
as the only investment undisturbed by the
gathering clouds. It was in this way that
our government was enabled te fund its 6
per cent, bends in 1876 into 4$ per cent,
and subsequently into 4 per cent, bends,
while previously and as late as 1874 their
conversion could only be effected into a 3
per cent. bend.
"And mind, gentlemen, that all this was
done during the time that the law-making
power of these United States was in the
hands of the Democratic party by its
maierity in Congress. Were foreign or
domestic capitalists and investors fright
ened by this majority, and deterred from
putting their savings and fortunes in the
securities of our government? Nothing
of the kind ; and it is a significant fact
that only in 1879, with the Heuse and the
Senate both Democratic, wcre we enabled
te float our 4 per cent, bends at par. It is
true, and I cenaedc it most cheerfully te
its fullest extent, that Secretary Sherman
took advantage of this favorable combina
tion of circumstances in the most able
manner. He developed in his negotiations
all the adroitness and energy which have
characterized his political career,
and nobody could have managed
the financial department of our govern
ment with a mera earnest and intelligent
zeal. But further than this his merit docs
net go, nor can it be logically expected
te go, and consequently it cannot and
eUL'ht net te be claimed, no could as
little permanently raise the value of our
bends in Europe and America as the great
Neckar, with all his financial genius, could
prevent the depreciation of French assig
nats. The claim of our opponents that we
ewe te them the prosperity with which,
after years of poverty and depression, we
are new blessed, is equally preposterous
and without foundation. It is barely two
years since we emerged from distress and
despondency te an upward course of suc
cess and hope, and, as I said before, for
the last four years the law-making power
of the country was in the hands of the
"I will tell you, my friends, what we
ewo te the Republicans, se far as com
merce and industry are concerned. We
ewe te them our present navigation laws.
which have driven the American merchant
flag mere effectually from the ocean than
ever did the Alabama, Flerida and ether
rebel cruisers, se that at this moment enr
immense carrying trade is almost entirely
done in foreign bottoms. It is a presump
tion as unwarrantable and untrue as
their pretense te be a moral, national and
progressive party, while they actually
present the very worst elements of cor
ruption, sectional hatred and bigoted in
tolerance with which ever a political body
has been impregnated. Their predictions
of disaster and ruin if General Hancock
should be elected are even mere absurd,
and I am bold te assert here that these
ridiculous and wicked prophecies are net
even believed by the reckless partisans
who put them forward."
