and that the senate has 110 iurkdlctlon
to try a citizen for an infraction of

S)me ot the I5cpubliean seem to be
lieve that tlio eotuequences of submitting

The committee of threo appointed at
the citizen's meeting in Chicago to wait
on Colvln and request him to vacate the
mayor's olllee, called on that gentleman
on Thursday morning last. The com
mittee consisted of Judge Otis, .Mes-rs.
Miles Kelioe and Krncst Trussing.
.Mayor Colvln had been expecting the
visit and received the gentleman with
courtesy. The knowledge of the imr-
posc of their presence In the mayor's ol
llee drew Into it the presence of a number
ot city employes, and a llttlu stir mani

of three appointed by the monster mass

Was the mayor ready to hear the demand
then!' Mayor Colvln politely informed
Judge Otis that it did not make a parti
cle of difference and that lie should pro
ceed. The Judge read the resolution
passed at the citizens' meeting, and then
said that In pursuance of the duty im
posed on tliein they were then to demand
his resignation in behalf ot tho eltitlzens

was that his time was' very much occu.

and tlio reply could be printed together
and he could then bo set right lieloro the

waited on the mayor in the afternoon
with the demand in writing as requested,
but the mayor was not ready for them
would not be for a day or two, and the
courteous leave taking of the morning
was again repealed. Colvin's reply will
appear in this morning Chicago papers
and it is understood will contain
all the points ol law in liU favor

Irlvoloits and absmd reason that lie occa
sionally Indulged in a little game of
draw. The deacon holds that no Chris
tian gentleman is titled to adorn the
higher circles ol polite society who Is un
familiar with the rule! that govern this
classic game. He Is well aware that there
has always existed lu the Old Dominion
a strong preference fnreiichro and seven
up; In tact, that several of her most
eminent, statesmen, and a large
majority of both tlie Senate and the
House ot Delegate-had, from long and
constant practice, attained to great per
lection in the art of cleaning out their
friends and acquaintances by means of
these pleasant social games. Hut all this
was no reason why the people of Virginia
at large should, through their representa
tives 111 Kiehiuond assembled, bo made to
stultify thcmsclvc- hi declaring the
game ol poker, under any circumstances,
liiconslstant with tlie Judicial dignity ol a

Perhaps, however, when we get all tho

delegate from this seemingly deliber

through an unpleasantness lesnlllng
from a frankly avowed dlll'erciicc ol opin
ion between tlio-e two gentlemen, as 10
gards the proper mode ol playing draw
poker, might really have been at the
bottom ol tlio unconstitutional resolution
passed by the Virginia house of dele
gates. The deacon explained that among the
Intimations that have of late years been
Introduced by the devotees ot tills popu-

it seems 111:11 i.onorai iirowu and the
Colonel sat down for a little game ot
draw, one sultry afternoon. Brown for
got to mention tnat mere were six aces lu
the pack, and Slaughter lauded ho was
playing witu 0110 01 tne old-fashioned
four need packs. The
result was a series of miscal
culations on the part of Slaughter, which
dually ended In his being entirely cleaned
out. Just nt tlio end ol the game he 1m
caino aware of the existence of an unu
sual number of aces, and thereat he re
proached Ilrown in language more vigor
ous than polite. In tact ho used such
words as swindling and cheating.
Language like this was more than Ma-
or General lirown could bear. With
great presence 01 mum 110 drew a bowie
knife and carefully In-cited about six
Indies ot tlio niauc into Slaughter s per

Tlie next day Slaughter was planted lu a

Some of Colonel Slaughter's friend,
hold a meeting to examine Into tb very

hcen cited, appeared, and testllled thai
lie, morn than any one clsu (with the
single exception ol Slaughter, probably,)
legrettcd tho melancholy tcrmlnation'of
tills misunderstanding; but that Slaught
er's language had been more than
Indiscreet, lie had actually and with
out the slightest qualification accu-ed
General Hrown of cheating nt card?. This
no man could say to his face and live, lie
asked the gentlemen of the committee
whether, under the circumstances, he
had any other cour-e open to him. lie
loro going to extremities ho had endav
ored to explain to ( 'oloucl Slaughter that,
so far as regards the actual winning, it
was of no moment how many aces there
were in a pack, as each player had mi
equal chance of getting four or live aces
every deal. Hut Slaughter would not
ll-ten to reason, mid while tlie committee
exhonorated General ilrown on the
ground that the provocation was vtry
great, they mildly remarked their disap
proval ot the act by dcliberatch putting
themselves on record of being of"tho opin
ion that he had been oicr-hastv in his ac
tion. Deacon Parker believes this untoward
event to have led to the passage of the
recent resolution by the Virginia house
of delegates against Judicial poker.

Tho death of .Mr. Stewart, although
not unexpected to nls family and Imme

pected that his excellent constitution
and previous good health would carry
him through in safety. A week ago the
malady developed Into peritonitis, or In
llainatlon ol the bowels, ;m, ,g condi
tion became very critical. Everything
that medical skill could do was done by
the attendant physicians, Dr. White
and Marcy, but the Patient sank dav by

precarious condition, Mr. Stewart inanl
tested the utmost calmness and fortitude,
expressing an Imperative wish that the
news bo withheld from his friends and
the public, so that no needless anxiety
might be occasioned. l.'p to Saturdav
night ho was able to converse with tlios'o

It was thought that ho would not live
