THE MERCANTILE WINS.
ELECTED CITY DEPOSITORY AFTER
A Nice Question Settled In a Manner
Satisfactory to All President Had
den May Vote Twice In tbe
Cue of a Tie.
Tin' 1 J ilntive Council inot at 3 o'clock
yestenluy, uml ajjiiin proceeded to ballot
for a depository o( the public moneys,
(juito a number of gcntlen.cn interested
in the rosult were present outsido tbe rail-in--;,
among others Memrs. Andrew Harris
nnd Gilbert Uniiio, on behalf of '.hu Mer
cantile Uauk, anil Mr. X. M. Jones, presi
dent of thu First Nntlonal Hank. There
was a full attendance of the Council. Pres
ident Had Ion presided. At bis right
hand sat ('apt. James l..v, an I on bis left
M.ij. J. T. IVttit, Next to Maj. IV t tit sat
Councilman Kney, and next to him Coun
cilman I. mihi- Wallace. Op-xnitu to Mr.
Wallace tut Couucilmca Sum Winch and
T. J. Graham, nnd next to the latter
Councilman John K. Handle. 'Ihc ballots
wrrr (oiiecii i nv .- rr.-i.irv 1 . n. lutnil,
who pa.-n.-d round thu hat, into winch
each member of the (V;nu il dropp.-d Iiih
ballot. Ilefore the balloting begn aletters
were NSd from tbe SecuHly Bank and the
Memphis City Hank, each tendering its
ei vices to take care of the city's money,
uiid offering to give a satisfactory
bond. 'Hie IwuiUJT It ink further
propoM-d to allow intciest at the
rate of 3 per cenL per aunum,
payable onurierlv. Korly-flve ballots wen
taken with slight variation. The first bal
lot ihasrwl Mercantile :l, .Statu il, Cniou
and I'lanters I. Throughout the ballot
ing the Mercantile lnver hud lens than
three ballots, and toward thu end began to
pile up four with unvarying regularity, fol
lowed by three for the lalu National and
simy one wbit-h hoppad from thu Cniou
n. I I'lu liter t i the hirst National with
perplexing lastMStSSJ y. On thu ninth
A aqi- uiiii r. AROsr,
the count showing ouly seven ballots in
thu hat instead of eight. Mr. I'ullen had
abeady started to aiinounce tbe result,
and gone so fur ss to aav, Mercautiln 4,
Male J, w In u he "too k-I wi'liu puzzled
look ami suid: "How's this? S'imeU.y
hasn't voted." Mr. IVttit replied: "Mr.
Itaudlu hasn't voted," and Mr, I'ullen,
tnrning Ins eye in that direction, naitl:
"There's Mr." Handle's ballot still in his
hand." Mr. Handle handed up his bal
lot, which happened to be (or thu State
National Hank, making the ba!lot. Mer
cantile 4, State 4, and so it was sun Minced
Quick as a Mu.h Mr. Andrew Harris was
on his feel and claimed Hint Mr. Haudlu'a
ballot ought ii. ( to be counted, haviW
been cast after the result was announced,
and that the Mercantile bad been fairly
elected by vote of 4 to il. Mr. Haiue
expressed similar views. Mr. Graham
"You can't elect; It takes a majority o(
Mr. Harris replied: "It only took four
la-t year, w by Joes it take more now?"
Then a long, rambling. Informal discus
h ii ii-in- I . whirh onded, as it should
have begun, by rclerrinif tbo question to
t. W. Metcalf, who was present as acting
City Attorney. Two question were sub
mitted to him. Should Mr. Handle's vote
Is' count.-.!, and if so, could l'r-idetit
I bidden ca.t another veto to settle tbe tie,
in srvonlancu with section , age '. 'M,
by-laws oi the liegislalive Council, which
rends as fol ows: "In all coses of k.l'ol by
I I ' t ... I.i.l..nl i fid. I.t
other raws be shnll not bo rriiiired to
Votu. bill iiiiiv do mi if he so elects. Hut
in case of a tie on any question ls?fore the
( lUtidl he will give the casting vole. And
every member of the Counci. is i.sjiiire.l
to vote on nil questions submitted to a
of the same.
Acting City Attorney Metcalf snid hu
thought that' Mr. Handle's vols should be
i MM. but he was clear that Mr. Ilnl
den had tbe right to a casting vote under
section M, though it would Involve his
v ting tvii', otherwis" thefjp linght l all
endless deadlock of the council, to provide
aalnt which Section H bad doubtless
Im-cii Introduced. I'nderstiiet purlinmeli
fciry law such a proceeding uiuht Is
irregular, but thu Taxing I'lstrlct tiovern
nient was peculiar Ixsly nnd subject to
laws sM-cislly vnsrted (or it.
Mr. Madden, having heard the opinion,
said: "1 rule that Mr. Handle's votu lie
couuted, making the votu 4 to 4. ami I
decide the tie by cating m) votu in favor
ol the Mercantile Kink, and I notii)' tbo
Mercantile Hank that 1 will work to boat
it il it applies ag mi next year. I vote for
it this tune on the principle o( rotation."
That point having Inwii settled Mr.
Handle dul tbo msgiisiiimous thing by
moving that the election of thu Mercantile
Hank be made unanimous. Una was
done without objection, wbereiiion Presi
dent Haddell raised a laugh by saying:
"Gentlemen, that confirms my decision."
After giving imviiiIspI'iIi, subject to the
nlcasure and will ol the Council, to con
pi.net iii the alley in the rear of No. 329

under the alley, the Council adjourn -I.

A MOIHBR'S CRIME.
She Deliberately Burns Herself and Har
Mn.WAfkKK, Wis., April 1. Mrs. Mar
garet Kiuleiu un l her throe chil
dren were burned to death in
their home, 564 Fifteenth street, early
this morning. The house is a small two
story frame building, two doors from Wul
ii ut street, mid Mrs. Kinlein with her
children, occupied the three rooms on the
lower lloor. Up stairs an old man named
Lawrunco Jung lived with bis son and
two daughters, und they were awakened
about 2 o'clock by thu smell of smoku
which soetaed to como from tin) room
bulow. Thu son got up and, going out
side, saw smoke pouring from thu lower
rooms. He smashed in a window but got
no rcspon.ie and then turned in n lire
alarm. It was an awful sight that met
the tiremen who arrived at the hou- i
after 1' o'clock in rctqMinsc to an alarm.
On thu lower lloor there were three rooms,
and in thu middle room, thu doors of
w hich had been tightly closod, the charred
lushes of Mis. Kiuleiu uud two sous,
John an I ..nr; aged mx ni l lour years
n -pci tivelv, were found. Ijtter the uotlv
of the infant son, K. chard, aged two years,
wits found in the busemuul, it hole having
burned through thu Moor, through which
the body had fallen. There was every in
dication that thu mother had deliberately
burned herself and children to denth.
They hnd all occupied the same bed. The
smoke from the lire built le-ncatfe il hud
smotheied them all. Mrs. kinlein's body
was terribly disfigured. The H ali ng and
hair had bruit burned oil . n I her tw. led
wen nearly gone. The chil Iren, too,
were horribly hurtled and H .in a kliurk
ing sight Hint met the llreineii when they
had forced their way into the little room.

penter, diud about ten months ago anil
she supported herself by taking in wash
