The Democratic county convention of
Union county, which met Monday after
noon, instructed for Hileman for congress,
Lemma for the senate and Holly for repre
sentative. The convention was auout to in
struct for Judge Crawford for congress,
when that gentleman declined tho honor,
saying that ho was not a candidate for the
office. Judge Hileman, who received the
nomination, has been county judge of
Union county for a number ot years, and
is a man of much ability and great
strength in his county. Mr. Holly, who
received the instruction for representative,
is a ' prominent attorney of the county,
who resides near Alto Pass. He received
a majority of thirty votes.
Mr. Jno. Keohler, the Eighth street
saloon keeper, has in his possession a fine
carriage and young horse, which he intends
to raffle off. The carriage is brand new,
perfect in all its appointments, strong in

It is just the thing for anybody who can
avail himself of its use in a healthful drive
along our avenues these splendid summer
evenings. Tho horse is a young one, gen
tle as a lamb, yet spirited enough for the
lover of a fast ride. He is perfection, every
limb aud part, aud could be utilized for
any ordinary purpose. We feeljustified in
saying that the fortunate winner will gain
a prize of which he may justly feel proud.
The chances are twodollais, and since they
are already going off like "hot cukes," we
advise those who desire to try their luck to
procure a chance at once.
To-morrow the Democratic state con

The announcement yesterday afternoon
that Gen. Garfield, of Ohio, had beeu nom
inated for president on th e 30th ballot by
the Chicago convention, was received here
with some surprise. Although it was ex
pected that some of Grant's opponents
would unite in case he should gain too rap
idly, the general impression was that Ed
munds or Sherman stood the best chance,
and few indeed, if any, thought for a mo
ment that Gartlell stood any chance at all.
After tho announcement, however, it was
generally acknowledged to bo a wise
choice, ana tii" excitement mat naa tor
lays pervaded the community, subsided,
just a though the Ubors of the convention
were at an end. It seemed to be a matter of
perfect indifference to everybody
who would "tail the ticket."

Why do those reckless news-gathers con
tinue these exciting reports. The conven
tion has strained tho public mind. Whit
taker's ear camo dangerously near being
neurporoted in tho struggle -it stood in
risk of becoming a national platform. Do
not, pray, add more to its overshadowing
proportion. The emphrian orator will

The Alexander county convention act
ed wisely in not trammeling the senatorial
delegates with instructions. The fact that
the party is decidedly in the majority in
this senatorial district, and has so many
rood men who could bring out its full
strength, leaves no doubt that who ever
the convention may place before tho people
of this district, will be elected state senator.
Nomination in this case, as iu the case of
Lincolu in 1804, means election. Hon.
W111. A. Lemma has, so far, been the most
prominent probable candidate for the office,
and has received the instruc
tions of his own, Jackson county.
Alexander county not having instructed
for Judge Lemma, it can, without treach
ery, advocate the claims of some one of her
numerous good men in the senatorial con
vention. And while we believe that Mr.
Lemma has at present the inside track as a
candidate for the state senate, yet the Alex
ander county delegation should not fail to
advocate the claims of Judge Green or
Hon. D. T. Lincgar. Alexander county is
entitled cither to the senator or representa
five in the legislature of the state and
should, and no doubt will, make the neces
sary effort to secure either one or the other.
Judge Lemma is, so far as we know, a very
good man and, should he receive the nom
ination, we would not withhold our sup
port. But we can not help saying that we
would prefer au Alexander county man for
the seuate. However, if our preference in
yds regard can not be satisfied, we will
content oursclt with the member of the
P. S. Since the above has been placed
in type, we have learned that Union county
has instructed for Judge Lemma. This, of
course, insures his nomination, and since
this s.'nst.irial district is Demo.'nt'.c, his
election is likewise insured.

There being no other business before the
council, Mayor Tliistlewood read the fol
lowing interesting communication, con
cerning the action of the couucil iu repeal
ing the vote wliich continued John II.
Robiuson chief of police :
(ijntlemea of Ihc City Council;
At your last regular meeting, as shown
by the record, a motion wa-i made and
adopted reconsidering the vote ot a previous
meeting, civing the consent to the mayor
to appoiut J. H. Robinsen to the office of
The only question to which I desire to
call your attention is, whether this is a vote
that can properly be reconsidered under the
act ot incorporation and ordinance adopted
by virtue of the authority, which it coufers.
Action 7, Article 3, provi les that the city
council shall determine its own rules of
procedure. The ninety-sixth division pf
Section 1. Article 5, gives the power to the
city coJucil "to pass all ordinances, rules,
and make all regulations proper or neces
sary to carry into effect the powers granted
to cities aud villages" by this act.
UnJer and by virtue ot thoe powers
thus granted, the city council by ordinance
has adopted the following as one of Us
rules of procedure, viz:
Any member wli shall have voted with
the prevailing srdc, may move for a recon
sideration provided he do so at the same
meeting, or at the first regular meeting or
special meeting caliud f r that purpose.
It is ch'tir to my mind that this rule was
not intended, and does not apply to every
vote that msy be taken by the city council,
nor does the general powers referred to
give the right to the city council to pass
any rule that would in any manner con-.
t'.ict with the acts of the, state legislature.
The mayor's bill provides that the mayor
shall appoint all officers (whose 1 lection
by the voters of the city is
not provided for) by and with
tho advice and consent of the city council,
by a vote ol a majority of all its member!',
authorized by law, to be elected, to be
taken by .-as anil nays uud entered upon
Now, I say that when any name shall be
submitted by the mayoi to the city council
for any office, the vote is not on the con
firmation or rejection, but cither granting
or refuiog permission to make the ap
pointment, and if the vote shall be in the
affirmative and the mayor shall proceed
and appoint the officer in accordance with
the permission given, it is not in the
nature if a question that can be recon
sidered, and any rule allowing such a con
struction would be plainly 111 conflict with
If the rule providing for the reconsidera
tion of questions was unlimited, thus the
city council could reconsider with the same
propriety the vote on the passage of any or
dinance. The acts of the legislature say that -all
ordinances passed by the city couucil shall,
before they take effect bo deposited in the
office of the city clerk aud if the mayor
approves them he shall sign the same, and
that they shall take effect and be in force
in other words when signed they shall
become the law.
Now, if this rule of reconsideration was
absolute, an ordinance passed by the city
council, receiving the votes of six
members thereof, and duly signed
and having been a law and in force nearly
a month, could bo repealed or set aside un
der certain contingencies at the next regu
lar meeting. Six members would constitute
a quorum. All that would be required.if the
four negative members were present, would
be to get some member who had voted on
tho prevailing side to move a reconsidera
tion of tho vote. Now I think you will all
agree readily with mo that this rule could
not be made to apply in this case, because
it would be plainly in conflict with the law
of the state.
The case of appointment is almost n par
allel case; the city council has given its
consent for the appointment of a certain
man to a certain office, and after the on
nounccment of tho vote and the appoint
ment has been made, there can iu my opin
ion be no reconsideration, but tho officer 80

At the conclusion of the reading of the
commuuicition, it was, on motion of Alder
man Saup received and filed. The result
of the vote had hardly been declared, when
Alderman Biake moved that John H. Rob
inson's bond which had been placed upon
the table at the last meeting, be taken from
the table and approved. Major Hinkle lost
no time in seconding the motion,
but before it could be put to the house,
Alderman Saup made a motion to adjourn
which was seconded. He said be made the
motion to adjourn because several aldcrmcu
were absent and be desireJ that every
member of the council should be heard on
the question. The mayor then put the
motion to tiie house, but the
ayes and nays being too evenly
divided to decide with certainty which
side was in the majority, the clerk was re
quested to call the roll which, after hav;ng
done so, showed that Aldermen Blake,
Hinkle and Pettit had voted nay, aud Al
mon Howley, Smith, Saup and Swoboda
aye. The ayes being in the' majority the
mayor announced that the council was ad
