the Council.
The city dad held sin exceedingly
ptormy session Monday night.
The office of Superintendent of
Street was abolished. Tin- made
the Remibliean members shake
their hoots and they introduced or
dinances to do away w.ith the Assis
tant City Clerk, Mayor's Clerk, Po
lice Prosecutor, Police Sergeant and i
also attempted to decrease the fees
the City Clerk receives for issuing
building permits. All of these
schemes failed to connect, however.
Streuuoii efforts were made by
the Republican councilmen to defer
action in regard to Superintendent
ofStreet Button's job, but the econ-
ominists didn't see it in that light;
and passed an ordinance abolishing
the office. Before a vote was taken
a series of heated arguments passed
between different councilmen and.
commissioners. Mr. Human wanted
to know whether or not Commis
sioner McGarry was going to have
"his favorite," as Mr. Human styled
Mr. Tat McCourt, put at the head
of the street gang. Mr. Brady knock
ed a hole in that argument by saying
that McGarry and McCourt were not
particular friends and that Homan's
talk was all nonsense., Commissioner
McGarry also explained himself by
saying the $1 ,000 paid Kutton was a
' useless expenditure or money and
would be saved to the taxpayers. He
said that Mr. Button was only a figure-head.
Under the old system or
ders were first given the Superinten
dent of Streets, then he gave them to
his street squads. Since the ofliee is
dead the street squads will receive
orders direct from the City Comis
sioners. Mr. Fiebeger said the .City Com
missioners should do more work
than in the past. He thought they
should make the rouilds of streets
during (he summer mouths and find
out their faults.
President Crisp replied that some
times in the year they were not able
to- get out, as they were on the
Equalization Board. After a few
more words had passed between
Comuitfcsrouer McGarry and Coun
cilman Homan. Mr. Brady
arose .and indignantly roasted
Mr.. Homan. sayitig that Mr.
Homan was talking childishly, and
that there was not a grain of mean

Mayor Young's Speech.
A red hot discussion followed.
Mayor Young addressed the Coun--il
He said: "There is possibly
nothing more sublime'and nothing
from which a grander or more beau
tiful lesson can be drawn, than from
the deathbed scene of one who peace
fully and Happily closes ins eyes.
Upon the other hand there is nothing
more horrible to look upon than tho
death bed scene of one writhim.' in
convulsions; of one who dies hard.'
The countenances of our Republican
friends, when called upon to meet tho
inevitable, are far from being peace
ful and serene. They die hard.
"Theycliargetne .Democrats witn a
lack of "honesty iu claiming that they
are abolishing the ofllco of

purpose of economizing and
charge that we are playing politics.

Democratic Commissioners, in or

voted for a llepublican Engineer. It
was generally believed that the Be-1
i publican Commissioners would then
' do hiin the compliment of turning

ant Engineer. Tt suddenly dawned .
upon Messrs. .Anderson, crisp ami
McMilJen, however', that an Assist-

aud that wo could economize by
, leaving the phn-e vacant. Of course
the fact that if tilled, a Democrat
would occupy the place, had nothing
whatever to do in bringing them to
tills conclusion. They simply want
ed to economize!"
