GitNTi.KMK.v. During tho ofllcial yoar,
last part, 1 held tho olliee of city clerk,
and to the best of my ability, faithfully
and honestly discharged the duties of
that responsfblo portion. I am aware
of tho lact, that, followiug in tho foot
steps of my predecessors,-acting on pre
cedent, in the matter of issuing licenses,
tho business was occasionally irregular
ly done; nnd since tho charges preferred
by City Treasurer Hyland, against City
Clerk Mockler, have been under discus
tlou before tho people, this fact hiw been
canvasjed and freely commented upon.
I know how ea"y Itlsto mako mistakes;
and, although I may not dissent from
tho aseertloti so common, thut a mistake
In a public oillcer Is worse than a crime,
yet I do not claim that I am less liable to
commit errors than others, and I admit
that it Is posslblo I may havo made
a mistake in tho matter of
receiving and paying over llconso
motioy. It was my opinion that
tho city comptroller would comparo my
books with those of tho city treasurer
before I vacated tho oftlco of clerk aud
then bring to light any mistakes that
might have been made; aud furnish an
opportunity to correct the errors. The
discussions of thopast week havo attract
ed my nttetitlon'.auow to the subject; nnd
being desirous to part from tho city fairly
and squarely anxious to pay to It any
money 1 might owo it, (although I be
llovo I am not now in any way Its debtor)
I ask that (If in your opinion It should
ho thought necessary) a commltteo may
bo appointed aud instructed to Investi
gate fully and freely my record as city
city clerk. Bolng contldent of my iu
tegrlty, fearful of my infallibility and
anxious to give to tho city all that is due
It from me, this request is made In com
pliance with tho dictates of dusy by,
Respectfully, your obd't servant,
John P. Faoin.
Tho motion bolng oeconded was put
and declared unanimously carried.
Aid. Theobald oll'ered tho following
resolution, and moved Its adoption:
Unsolved, By tho city couucll of tho
city ofCalro in Joint session convened,
having under consideration tho charges

Pending tho decision of tho resolution
Alderman McKeo moved a postpone

THE MOCKKEIt TRIAL.
EVIDENCE FOR THE DEFENSE.
Arguments of the Counsel.
t. . . ,
The AccmnoI round fiullly.
At tho hour of 8 o'clock last night tho
court room wbb again filled by cltlzeus
Interested In tho Investigation ponding
Into tho truth of tho charges of
malfeasance nnd corruption in
ofllco preferred against Patrick
Mockler, City Clerk. At midnight tho
testimony closed, and although tho ar-
. . .
gumuiiiH oi council yet remaineu to
bo heard, only n small portion of the au
Sixteen members of the council took
their scats, alderman Itcdman and Hu
lcn being absent.
Tho witnesses for tho dofense wero
called nnd tho oath was administered by
C. Winston, notary public. The flrat
witness called was
2f. Jlunsiker. Mr. IT. uaid: 1 am a
resident of Cairo and havo resided hero
about ten years. Havo filled tho ofllco
of sherljrnnd been county treasurer for
Question: Are you familiar with the
manner in which city licenses havo
heretofore becu issued?
Mr. Butler for tho prosecution objected
to tho introduction of evldenco of tho
character Indicated by tho question. Mr.
Mockler was ou trial for a crime, for
wrong doing in ofllce, and tho crimes
and wrong doings of other odlcers could
not be plead in justification. Tho law
prescribed the manner in which licenses
should bo issued, and no former custom
or usage was right that failed to conform
to that law.
Judgo Mulkey for tho defense, said
that tho object was, to provo his client's
motive. Crime is tho violation of law,
and In the commission of crimo there
must be a Joint operation of act and in
tention. Intention is the spirit of the
wrong. The evidence Is desired to throw
light upon tho acts of Mr. Mockler. In
Illinois there is u statute law prohibiting
the circulation of a bank bill of a less de
nomination than 55 that is not stamped
with the sanction of tho State. Custom
has rendered the law ajnulllty. No man
is prosecuted for violating its provisions,
and it Is violated every hour and minute
of the day. That law Is dead, and usage
has made it so.
Judgo Mulkey continued, at considera
ble length, nnd was followed by;.ludgo
Allen, who declared that usually, in
logic, there is a relation between purpose
nnd motive and object nnd consoqueuce
It waH proposed to mIiow how "olluFr
clerk's offices had been couducted; what
other dorks had done without being
deemed reprehenMblc. Acts nover
amount to oriino unless hinged with In
tontinn, and it J legitimate to Inquire'
what .Mflio accused's intention. If
ho waslollowing an Immemorial usage,
that fact divests his acts of u purpuie to
commit a wrong, Ac.
Mr. Butler replied, nnd tho question
was submitted to the mayor for decision.
Tho mayor could not C'.ncelvo that one
wrong Justified another. "Tho law pic
scribes theproceduro necessary iu tho is
stianco of licenses, and tho fact that this
law was violated by others cannot Justify
tho wrong of Mockler. Usago does not
Justify theft, and tho attempt to shield
John Doo from tho consequences
of horse stenling because Richard
Boo aud mauy others had been
guilty of tho samo larceny, partakes of
the absurd and would not bo permitted.
The chair, therefore, Is of tho opinion
that tho ovldenco is not admissible. I
may bo mistaken, but such Is my opinion
Unwilling, however, to deny tho defense
any advantage he may think ho has in
the ovldenco proposod, I shall submit the
question to tho council, and bo governed
by their decision." Tho council decided
that thoy would hear tho ovldonce, by a
vote of 13 to 3.
Mr. Hunsaker then continued:
About ton o'clock a subpojua was serv
ed on me, and I havo given tho matter
much thought since then, and although
I cannot refer to tho instances. I nm
satisfied that I havo been present when
chirks have Issued licenses without tho
Mr. Butler for the prosecution, for tho
purpose of saving time, agreed to admit
what tho defonso sought to provo, viz:
that licenses had frequently been Issued
without a treasurer's receipt. Tho de
fenso insisted upon tho examination of
Joseph Arnold: Have lived iu Cairo
fivo years. I havo seen Mr-lrvln Issue
llconso without tho treasurer's receipt.
Havo scon license Issued that way a
hundred tlmeH. Xnt nnaltlve that I over
saw Fuel n Ihmiio a llnonftft In that wnv. I
Cross-examined : Mr. Walton Issued
tho llconso; ho was Mr. Irvln's deputy.
Mr. Walton was also tho deputy treasur
er and issued tho llconso by virtue of his
olllco as deputy treasurer. Know of no
other licenso being Issued by tho clerk
G. W. Heron: I havo been In Cairo
permanently since February 1SC8 I act
ed with Mr. Fagin, lato city clerk, during i
a porlod of Hired weeks. 1 issued licoiiHo
for him repeatedly without treasurer's
recolpt. Did It nearly every day some .
times half a dozon times a day; but al- J
ways immediately ontered them upon i
C'08S't.ram!nedi 1 did not Ismio llconso
without treasurer's receipt as frequently
as I did upon tho receipt. 1 handed tho
money to Fagln, and don't know what ,
became of It ; can't say whether tho trea
surer over demanded tho money of Mr.
Fagln or not.
Col. J. S. Itearden: J obtained llconso
from Mr irvln. Ho at first objected to
receive tho money but afterwards con
sented, I also obtained license from Mr. '
Fagln, who did not object when tho
money was offered. Mr. Irvln objected
because I had not tho treasurer's receipt.
Michael Bambrlck: On two occasions
Mr. Mockler sent mo to Mr. Hyland, tho
treasurer, to toll him that ho was ready
tosottlo: but I never snw Hyland and
didn't tell Jilm.
Here Judgo Mulkey arose and asked
that tho sworn statement of Mr. Mock
ler bo received, ns to what passed be
tween him and Mr. Hylnnd when they
two woro alone. Tho Judgo agreed that
If tho prosecution was a criminal one tho
evidence was not ndmissublc; but if it
partakes of the nature of a civil action
It Is admissible. It Is desirable thatall tho
light posslbleshall be thrown ou the case
that tho council mny net advisedly.
Tho matter was submitted to tho coun
cil for determination and it was decided
that tho testimony of Mr. Mockler
should boiieard, by a voto of 15 to 1.
Patrick Mockler: I rcmemlxlr a part
of Mr. Hyland's testimony. I recollect
tho part that referred to his looking over
my books. Be said that I had entries on
tlie book for licenses nnd that ho had not
received tho money for them. I told
him that it was noi so; that some of
them had ImlllfPs receipts. Hyland
said it was not proper for mo to havo
them on my books until I paid him tho
money. Tho entries were not on his book
he said, aud untlil ho gnttho money and
entered thorn tho books would not
agree. Next morning I eras
ed Keed & Mann's aud Koehler's
names. Ho told mo I should put them
on when I paid him tho money. He
never demanded the money until the
letter was written on tholstof July. Tho
fight I had with him had nothing to do
with the matter. It wan about (St. Pat
rick Society affairs, which I shall not ex-
flaln. Ho called mo a son-of-a-bltch and
knocked him down. Two or three days
after that ho sent me tho note. Ho came
into my olllco and said: Mockler, are
you issuing license yet? I said, sit down,
John; I want to talk to you. He said,
you damn thief, I won't talk to you. I
told him I wanted to settle. I tendered
the money to the mayor, that day, twho.
I never had any purpose to cheat tho
the city, I was hard up and I used the
money. I acknowledge that before God
Croti Examined: Hylnnd told mo he'd
give me time. I told hi in I'd pay him
about tho 1st of July or as soon as I could.
Don't recollect that I promised to pay It
tho 1st of July. lie demanded tho
monoy of me about tho Oth of April. I
told him I'd pay it as quick as I could.
When ho found out 1, was issuing II
censo ngaln I think ho told mo he'd re
port me. Ho warned mo to issue no
license. I told him to stay out of my
olllcc. Ho called mo nson-of-a-bltch. I
hit him and knocked him down. We
clinched and hegot me down and was
gouging my eye and I took his finger
and scraped it into my mouth aud com
menced grinding on It. I scratched oil'
tho name of Keed A Mann and Koeh
ler's name. Issued tho license to Heed &
Mann the -1st of April. 1 had a conver
sation with Hyland about scratching
them oil' in May. 1 nover put Bosch's
nirv ! hook. I did not put
Btroii.t-iV iiu iio on tho book because I
hndn't paid the money over. Hylaud
told me in tho first conversation wo hud
to receive no moro money. I don't re
collect whether I paid Hylnnd money
after Issuing Becd & Mnun'tf. Krch'
nnd .Strotliur'sllfieuso or not.
JiC'dirc'. About dividing tho money
between us I said: Hyland, If wo would
do as tho other fellers have been doing,
weM dlvhjo tho money between us; it
would buy us both a nleo suit of now
clothes. Hylaud replied that ho knew
that kind of thing had been going ou.
tald yes, but I'd starvo hcioro I'd do any
such a thing I don't know whether this
converbatlou occurred before or nfter tho
wharf boat money came in. Hylaud
didn't say ho would not inko a cent. I
said that I would starvo before I'd take
any. I never told Hylnnd ho wns a fool
for not agreeing to divide tho money. I
may have said wo wcro both damn fools
for not doing it, as others beforo us had.
Question by tho mayor. Why did
you contlnuo to Issue liceuso after Mr.
Hyland had warned you todesUt?
Auswer Becauso sometimes Mr. Hy
land wns not in his olllco nnd I didn't
want people to bo put to the trouble to
Hero the defense cloned their evidence.
Tho prosecution thou called C. Winston
W. T. Beerwurt aud M. B. Hariell as
C. Winston: I have resided in Cairo
about fivo years, acted in tho capacity of
Comptroller during tho years '00 and '07.
1 havo no knowledgo of tho manner of
Inning license by vlrluo of my olllco as
Comptroller. While connected with tho
ofllco of John Q. Harmon & Co., I knew
licenses to ho Issued by Mr. Irvln, city
clerk, at tho Kullcltatiou of Mr. Howley,
treasurer. Settlements wcro made with
Howley weekly. Ordinarily the custom
was to issue license only upon tho presen.
tatlonoftho treasurer's receipt. Nover
knew thorn issued without tho treasurer's
consent. Mr. Walton while acting as
deputy clerk was also acting as deputy
treasurer, and received money and re
ceipted for It in tho name of Mr. Howley
M. B, Harrell: I was city treasurer
from March, 1S05 to March, 1800. The
custom that obtained at that tlmo Iu the
Issuance of license was for tho applicant
to pay tho monoy to tho treasurer, ob'
tain his recolpt therefor, aud then to pre
sent tho receipt to tho city clerk. Tho
licenses wero Issued upon tho presenta
tion of tho receipt, lean call to mind
no instance when tho clerk Issued a li
cense without my receipt, unless by my
special request, upon occasions when I
desired to absent myself a short time.
This occurred three or four times during
W. T. Beerwart: The custom In Issu
ing license was that anybody thut u-an ted
license should get tho treasurer's receipt
and tako It to tho clerk. It wns not cus
tomary for tho clerk to Issuo license
without my recolpt. Tho olork did Issue
a few, but 1 Informed tho Comptroller,
aud after that 1 don't know that ho is
sued any moro. Tho clerk was boarding
at tho St. Charles aud wanted license (or i
them and como to see me about it. 116
didn't have money enough and 1 took j
his duo hill and gave him a receipt.
Crass-examined 1 thought thoComp- !
trollor tho proper person to keep the j
thing In order. I don't know how many ,
lcouses tho oldrk had Issued before I told .
1 i I in to quit probably fivo or six. I had
Air. F.'sduo bill when I wont out of of
fice I don't know whether AVnlkor &
Slsson's nnd Col. Bearden's names are
on my books or not, and can't say
whether thoy paid wu any money. Tho
i no lii in ii nitror noiweon Air,
and myself, nnd wns received by mo In
lieu or money.
Hero the testimony closed.
To cconomi.o tlmo, a resolution was
offered, but Immediately withdrawn, to
tho effect that attorneys In nrgulng tho
case should bo limited to ono hour each.
Afterwards a motion was mado that each
attorney should limit hlmsolf to 30 min
utes. This motion provalled ; but was re
considered and voted down. So tho at
torneys approached tho discussion at tho
hour of midnight, unrestricted, ungate
ged. A good many of the lookers on
composed Uiemxclves in their seats fora
night of It; but tho attornoys wero more
merciful than usual. They occupied
about forty minutes each, closing about
2 o'clock a. m.
Wo shall not attempt even an epitome
of the remarks. Hufllco it to say Judges
Allen and Mulkey mado It appear that
Put had madca'tnlstake, had been guilty
of a very trifling peccadillo; possibly that
ho had been guilty of a technical viola
tion of tho law; but for this, (chargeablo
moro to ignorance than to a purposo to
do wrong) the idea of divesting him of
his olllco is absurd. Pat was not without
sin, of courso not. Let nuoh of tho coun
cil as are guiltless throw stones At him,
etc , Ac.
On tho other hand Mr. Butler mado it
appear that Pat was enormously guilty;
that he was a cormorant, feeding on tho
vltnls or tho city; that ho was foster
ing In corruption from tho solo of hla
head to tlie crown of his foot; that he
was, in short, guilty as churged, aud a
good deal moro so, and tin r the well be.
Ing of tho city and tho safety of the.
finances demanded his prompt ejection
from office a verdict of guilty. At tho
closo of Mr. Butler's speech tho mayor
announced it wns his duty undor tho
rules to submit tho charges to the coun
cil to bo voted upon serintum. Tho coun
cil would now proceed to vote upou the
first charge, which Is in the words fol
lowing: 1 That, In Violation r f voiinluty aw im atticcr nftlm

Tho following members voted
"Guilty:" Barclay, Jorgensen, Martin,
Barden, Williamson, Brankle, Carroll,
Hendricks, Lohr, Louergnn, McKee,
Mendell aud Theobold 13.
Tho following members voted "Not
guilty:" O'Calllhan, Kenuedy nnd
Tho mayor announced the result. Tho
council then proceeded to vote upon tho'
second charge, which is in the words fol
lowing: 2. That, in violnticmof your ililtv, n nUirnsUl, von

found that the council had voted unani
mously "Not guilty."
A motion was then made by alderman
Titootmhl, mat Patrick Mockler, having
