COUNTING THE DEAD.
Louisville's Sacrifice to the
Terrible Tornado Put in
Fully 150 Persons Perished,
the Property Loss Aggre
An Even Hundred Bodies, All
Fully Identified, Shrouded
Marion and Many Other Ham
lets Fared Worse Than
Loi'iSA'ii.LE, Ky.. March 29.— The lat
est estimate of dead places the figures
between 120 and 150. One hundred bod
ies have been recovered, and there are
but few persons not accounted for. The
damage to property approximates 63.000,
--000 in Louisville alone. In Jefferson
ville it is about $750,000. Many of the
wrecked houses are a menace to life
and to property that escaped the fury of
the storm, and they have been or
dered torn down. Gangs of men,
under direction of city officers, are
clearing away the debris from the
streets. The embargo on business has
been raised and traffic has been re
sumed. The outlook is bright and cheer
ful and efforts are being made to have
the damage assumed by the community
without the aid of outside help. Per
haps the most destructive work done by
the tornado was on Market street. For
three squares noith of Ninth nearly
every business and dwelling house was
devastated. Houses were
Hurled Into the Stree,t
and the debris in many places was
piled thirty feet high. The picture of
sorrow and desolation to be witnessed
on Market street yesterday, where
homeless women and children wero
wandering about viewing the places
from where they so narrowly escaped
the night previous, baffles description.
Every house from Ninth to Eleventh
street was almost totally demolished.
West and east of these streets the torn
ado did frightful damage, but the
destruction of property was hardly so
great. Not till daylight dawned upon
Main street could the extent of the devas
tation be fully comprehended. The
cyclone struck the city's main thorough
fare at Eleventh street and veered to
the north at Seventh. Not a half-dozen
houses were left intact throughout the
entire extent of the four squares. The
daylight revealed that the majority of
buildings had been virtually destroyed.
The tocacco warehouses suffered terri
bls% and the big wholesale houses fared
little better. Little work is being
done except at the tobacco ware
houses, where as many men as
could be secured are employed
in removing the thousands of hogsheads
of tobacco to placs of shelter. Should
a heavy fall or rain occur in a day or
two, the loss of pronerty on Main street
will be doubled. Kext to Market and
Main streets, Jefferson street probably
suffered more than any other portion of
the city. From Ninth to Eleventh the
destruction was complete. The side
walks and streets were a network of
wires, telegraph poles, trees and rem
nants of houses. In many places the
street was totally blocked by
the roofings torn from the
stores, some of which had been
Carried by the Hurricane
two squares or more. Wagons were un
able to reach many of the homes of
those who were anxious to remove the
remainder of their furniture. AH day
men were busy cleaning the streets to
allow transportation, and placards were
posted on many of the houses and trees
offering 13. $4 and $5 for laborers.
vVotnen and children were pressed
into work to clean the debris
away. The police , and privates of
the Louisville lesion were stationed
at every corner to keeD back the
crowds which thronged to see the de
struction. The side streets leading
into Jefferson, Market and Main were
thronged with sightseers from the time
the newspapers appeared on the streets
until late to-night. Between Tenth and
Eleventh streets the destruction to
property was small in comparison with
the total destruction on the square be
low. The track of the tornado across
Walnut street was confined principally
to the two squares between Twelfth and
Fourteenth street, and within this limit
only, houses on the north side of street
were greatly damaged, with the excep
tion of the colored Odd Fellows' hall at
Thirteeth and Walnut streets, which is
a complete wreck. The casualties on
Walnut street were very few, the people
in some mysterious way escaping seri
ous injury' from the falling walls and
flying missiles that for a few minutes
filled the air as thick as hailstones. The
only death ascertainableso far was that
of a colored boy. Moody Davis, who was
attempting to cross the street at Thir
teenth and Walnut in the midst of the
fury of the storm. A large, pointed
rafter, which had i>een torn from the
roof of a neighboring building, pierced
him just below the right shoulder and
Clear Through His Body,
came out just above the right hip, kill
ing him instantly. Do was picked up
by trembling hands and borne to his
home on Magazine street, between
Thirteenth and Fourteenth. Marvelous
to relate, there was not a man or woman
or child seriously hurt in the track of
the tornado extendine from Thirteenth
to Seventeenth street on Chestnut.
Chestnut street in one of the beautiful
portions is almost completely wrecked,
yet all the people are bravely encour
aging one another, and giving thanks
that loss of life is not added to the fearful
destruction of valuable property. The
devastation on Chestnut street" begins
half way between Thirteenth and Four
teenth streets and extends to the middle
of the block bounded on the east and
west by Sixteenth and Seventeenth
streets. On the north side of the street
not more than six buildings in the three
blocks escaped, and most of them were
so irretrievably damaged that they will
have to be razed, as they cannot be re
MEASURES OF RELIEF.
Offers of Financial Assistance
From All Over the Union.
Louisville, Ky., March 29.— The ex
ecutive committee of the relief fund,
which is operated in connection with
Die board of trade and the charity or
ganization, with headquarters at Room
11, in the board of trade, received
a large number of new subscriptions
to-day, and relieved a number of cases
in which immediate action was neces
sary. All the cases reported were taken
charge of by the investigators who,
alter satisfying themselves that tho
cases were worthy, assisted them as ne
cessity seemed to require. And it was
thankfully received in every instance,
and the people expressed them
selves as thoroughly satisfied. Noth
ing was done, however, save in cases
when 1 the urgency was apparent.
To-monow. beginning at 10 o'clock a.
m., a thorough system will be put in
operation by which all cases will be at
tanded to. 'The executive committee,
with ufnli corps of assistants and clerks,
under the management ot W. T. Rolph,
chairman, will be at the Board of Trade
building, and will remain there all day.
Belief will also be gauged by the
Number of Applicants.
For instance, if there are $30,000 to
distribute and 10,000 applicants, each
will receive 33>£ per cent, attention be
ing uaid to tlio amount of damage,
which, of course, will cause some vari
ation. The amount of the fund now iv
the hands of Treasurer Buckner, ex
cept what was used for urgent cases
yesterday, is $32,000. The com
mittee from the Cincinnati cham
ber of commerce, which came down
at midnight Flidav, returned home to
day. They viewed the devastated dis
trict and said the damage was much
greater than they had supposed. The
executive committee of the board of
trade politely but firmly declined offers
of assistance. Chairman Rolph notified
the gentlemen that Louisville proposed
to stand up to the rack and care for her
own peoDle. The Cinciuuatians ap
plauded the determination, remarked
that Louisville was plucky and
invited a call on the Cincin
nati chamber of commerce if help was
needed. A telegram was received which
stated that Indianapolis had raised $20,
--000 to be sent if needed. There were
offerings of assistance from other points
also. None of these have been accepted.
The spirit which actuates the people
seems to be that Louisville will
Stand by Her Own People.
Mayor Jacob said that, while he was
opposed to calling for outside help, if a
voluntary contribution were offered, he
would advise its acceptance. A good
many people called on the relief com
mittee to-day for help. Those who
were in great distress were relieved.
Applications were noted, and in
vestigation and relief will speed
ily follow. Mayor Jacob received
many telegrams to-day from all
parts of the country, offering help and
financial assistance. To all of them the
mayor responded on behalf of the citi
zens of Louisvilie, thanking them for
their kind offers of assistance, and stat
ing that money only could be used.
Many offers of food, clothing, medical
attention and nurses weie offered, but
the mayor felt that Louisville could
house and feed her wounded and dis
tressed and bury her dead, so all offers
of this nature were kindly declined.
The relief delegations lroni Cincinnati,
Indianapolis and from the Kentucky
legislature viewed the devastated dis
trict to-day and saw for themselves the
work of destruction that had been done
and in some measure the distress
that prevails on every hand. Neither
of the delegations were solic
ited for aid, but the matter was
left in their own hands to do whatever
their inclinations suggested. The in
spection of the legislative committee
may result in a large appropriation by
the legislature, and material assistance
is exuected from Cincinnati and In
dianapolis whenever their respective
committees return and tell of the
desolation and suffering they wit
nessed. The generous donation
of Melville Butfer, a convict in
the Kentucky penitentiary at Frankfort,
was much commented on to-day. But
ler was sent to the penitentiary for a
long term for killing a man named Mc-
Coy on Jackson and Gray streets several
years ago. A letter was received from
Butler yesterday by Mayor Jacob, con
taining four crisp five-dollar bills, which
the donor directed to be used in the re
lief of tornado sufferers.

Preliminary Examination of
Brainerd's Brace of Alleged
Only One Step Taken, and a
Special to the Globe.
Fankton, S. D., March 29.— The
Bradstreeta and Dun commercial agen
cies are making considerable noise over
the passage of a bill by the South Da
kota legislature, which they claim prac
tically prohibits them from transacting
business in the state. The law provides
that no company association, individual
or association, whether incorporated or
not, shall, directly or indirectly, trans
act the business either of commercial
agencies, credit companies or guarantee
associations without first receiving a
certificate from the state auditor. The
state auditor shall not issue the
certificate unless the company or
association has a paid-up cap
ital of $300,000, and in addition
thereto deposits the sum of $so.OOOwith
the treasurer of the state, or with the
chief financial officer of the state in
which the company is organized, said
deposit beinir duly assigned to said
ofheer, and subject to the judgment and
garnishment of persons injured finan
cially or otherwise by the company or
association making the deposit. The
company or association shall file with
the slate auditor of South Dakota the
name of a resident of the state, who
shall be an agent upon whom process
may he served. The company or asso
ciation must make an annual statement
of the business done, and pay to the
state a specific tax of 2 per cent on all
business. The law also prohibits com
mercial agencies from having reporters
circulate in the state without giving
their names to the state auditor, and
securing a certificate issued in his name.
This applies also to agents and repre
sentatives of all other companies. The
penalty to this law is a fine of $250 and
six months in the county jail.

The Brainerd Kxprcss Robbery
Case Postponed Until Monday.
Special to the Globe.
Bhainekd, Minn,, March 29.— The
case of Searles and Paine, charged with
robbing the Northern Pacific Express
company of §15,000 in gold, were called
in the municipal court this morning.
The prosecution was on hand with a
whole army of witnesses, but counsel
for the defense, understood to be
Erwin & Wellington, had not arrived,
and the defense by Attorney McClena
han asked the courtesy os a postpone
ment until Monday. The prosecution
being ready, and having witnesses here
from a great distance, requested that
the examination be proceedocl with or
such witnesses oe hoard as bould not be
well detained, unless by stipulation
what they would testify to be admitted.
This was agreed to. and the defense
formally admitted as proved that the
basr containing $15,000 was shipped from
St. Paul, ami duly and safely arrived
here at the time and under the circum
stances claimed by the prosecution. So
the case Monday will start at that point
and the examination be stripped of so
much of mere formality. There has
never been any doubt that the money
was so shipped and delivered into the
custody of the local agent here, nor
that it was stolen from him. The bat
tery of counsel is now fully made up,
ami is for Monday's fight Leon E. Lum,
county attorney, and G. S. Fernald,
counsel, the latter being: the local attor
ney of the Northern Pacific railway,
and who is credited with working up
the case; and for the defense Messrs.

PRETTY MRS. PKTKRS' PLAINT
A. Broker's Wife Seeks KeMef
From Matrimonial Bonds. •
Chicago, March 29.— Ross Peters,
one of the most prominent men on the
Chicago board of trade, a partner of the
late J. T. Lester, was served with di
vorce papers of an extraordinary sort
yesterday by his wife, who, as Miss
Marion E. Howard, of Brooklyn, wedded
Peters a couple of years ago. The wed
ding was a faultlessly stylish affair, and
seemed particularly charming by reason
of the fact that both parties were youmr,
handsome and very wealthy. Mrs.
Peters' attorney is W. A. Foster, oue of
thfl jawyers in the anarchist and
Cronin cases. Her bill charges that
Peters is so engrossed with club life
that he has no time or inclination to at
tend the demands of home. From the
time the couple commenced housekeep
ing, a few weeks arier their marriage,
Mr. Peters, his wife says, has been
making her life miserable, and for
many months has been coining home
nightly from 12 to 3 a. m. in a cab, in
loxicated. He awakes some time be
fore noon and wants the morning paper
at once, and he has often pushed his
wife out of bed and compelled her to
go brinir him his favorite journal. Mis.
Peters is very fond of amusement, par
ticularly theaters, but Peters, she says,
goes|to the playhouses alone, refusing to
take her along. The last time
he accompanied her anywhere
was to the dog show a year
ano. Mrs. Peters' parents, she snys,
gave her a $0,000 trousseau, the princi
pal dress costing $10 a yard at whole
sale in New York, but Mr. Peters con
tinually avers that the costume was
illy-contrived, mean and penurious, nnd
her parents should have been ashamed
of it. During their entire married life,
it is said, Peters did not give her o/er
$150 worth of appaivl. Mrs. Peters says
her husband criticises her manner of
eatnur, saying she devours her food like
a "hog," and that her voice is "disa
greeable," "coarse" and "vulgar." lne
bill concludes with a statement that
though Peters has failed to furnish' lis
wife with clothing and viciously cut 03
at the bills of the household, he ■ j a
constant patron of the moat expensive

Secretary Wintloiu Directs the
Release of the Pathfinder.
Washington, March 29,— Secretary
Windoin this afternoon directed the re
lease of the British sealing schooner
Pathfinder, which was brought into
Port Townsend, Wash., last night by
the revenue cutter Corwin. The Path
finder was seized last year for unlawful
sealing in American waters, but subse
quently escaped. At that time it was
a disputed international question as to
what waters the United States had
jurisdiction over in Behring: sea, and
the question is still the subject of
international negotiation and still unde
cided. Recently lion. Charles Tupper,
Sir Julian Pauncefote, the British min
ister, and Secretary Blame have had ex
tended conferences on the subject,
which, though now temporarily sus
pended, will, it is understood, be re
sumed within a short time. This seiz
ure of the Pathfinder now with the
question still the subject of negotiation .
would, if held, practically assert the
authority of the United States over the
disputed waters, so Secretary Window,
after consultation ' with Secretary
Blame, decided the release of the I'ath
finder. The negotiation can now be re
sumed without prejudice to either side.

WEATHER AND THE CROPS.
The Storm of Thursday Furnished
Washington, March 29. — The
weather crop bulletin issued for the
week ending to-day says: The weather
continues for the week were generally
reported as favorable in Dakota, Min
nesota. lowa and Nebraska. Although
the storm of the 27th interrupted seed
ing, it furnished much-needed moist
ure. The general weather con
ditions were also favorable in
Michigan, Indiana, Illinois. Missouri
and Kansas, but the deficiency in
rainfall iv the last named state, was
unfavorable, while some injury was
caused by heavy rains in Southern In
diana. Reports from the entire winter
wheat belt indirate that the recent
freeze during the present month in
jured the crop less than was at first es
timated, and tne appearance of wheat
has improved during the past week.
Reports from the Southwest indicate
that the weather during the past week
was especially favorable, and plant
ing is progressing rapidly in Texas, Ar
kansas, and in the uurtooded districts of
Mississippi and Louisiana. In the gulf
states much of the ground is too wet to
plow and farming is not as far advanced
as usual at this date. In the South At
lantic states and Virginia generally fair
weather improved the condition of the
growing crops except in some localities
in Virginia and North Carolina,
where rains resulted in some
damage. Early vegetables were
much improved in South Caroiina.
The excessive rains in New Jersey and
Pennsylvania have generally inter
rupted farm work, but wheat is re
ported in goo-i condition in Pennsyl
vania, while fruit has been injured in
New Jersey and New York. Unfavor
able weather continues In New Eng
land, where but little progress has been
made in farm work. Keports from
Oregon show that the season is very
backward and the ground is generally
too wet for plowing, but winter wheat
is in good condition.

VERY HOT SESSIONS,
A Pair of Political Meetings
That Made the Fur
Second Ward Democrats and
Ninth Ward Republicans
Labor Reformers Declare No
Man Controls Their
Sentiment Opposed to Indors
ing Candidates for Mun
Political feeling is running high in
the Second ward. This was clearly
evidenced by a meeting that was held
in Miller's hall, corner of Maria ave
nue and Filth street. The meeting
was called for the purpose of ratifying
the nomination of L. E. Heed as a
Democratic candidate for the ward, and
all citizens were invited. Con
sequently . the hall was well
filled by 8 o'clock, and It was
noticeable that the feeling of those
present was not strictly favorable to
Mr. Reed's candidature. On the con
trary, there was a large element espous
ing the cause of Fred W. Bott, who was
among those present. Mr. Reed and
his immediate supporters were some
what tardy in making their appearance.
The audience became impatient, and
the Bott men deftly selected Dr. E.
X. Amosa as chairman. The doctor is
favoiable to the candidacy of Mr.
Bott, but, while in the chair, did his ut
most to give every person a fair hear
ing. The proceedings were of the live
liest description. Find Bott replied to
repeated calls, delivering a manly ad
dress in advocacy of his own cause.
Dan S. Collins, boiling with excitement,
secured the floor, and fervidly espoused
L. E. Reed as the Democratic candi
date. While he wanted Mr. Keed to
represent the ward, he declared him
self a warm friend of Mr. Bolt.
Mr. Bott— Then why arc you opposed to
Mr. Collins (excitedly)— l am not opposed
Cries of "Oh! shut up," "'give some one
else a chance."
Mr. Collins— l've paid for the use of this
hall, and I won't shut up. N&roa
General uproar, and Mr. Collins eventually
deemed It desirable to seek the security of
his seat, Mr. Bolt desired to point out the
absurdity of Mr. Collins' position. Mr. Col
lins had claimed a warm friendship for him,
acknowledged him to be intelligent, capable,
honest, true and just, yet he thought the cit
izens would be better represented by Mr.
Heed. Mr. Bott added: "I would like to
know what better qualifications Mr. Keed
Loud cries, one at all;" "Bott'stbe,
man "No, wo want Reed;" "Reed for
ever," and general uproar. .
Chairman Amoss— Order, order, gentle
Mr. note — II sit. iteea hrtn (Totte out early
as a candidate I would never huve allowed
my name to go before the people. If the sen
timent for Mr. Reed is so strong, how is it
that he did not " decide to come out as a can
didate earlier than this?; There is Home ob
ject in this. There is something behind Mr.
Keed'B candidature ; there is a plot underly
ing it all. They want to hit Bott because
they want to down some one else.
Cries of: ''That's it" 1 and- continued np
roar. At this point Mr. Reed, P. U. Kelly,
Clarence E. Robb and immediate supporters
arrived on the scene. The proceedings be
came more uproarious. It was now evident
that the Reed men were in - the majority.
Their leaders noticed this, and Dan Collins
once more came to the front. He demanded
that Dr. Anioss should vacate the chair and
another chairman be elected. The proposi
tion raised loud and angry erics, and consid
erable recrimination took place between the
two factious. The hoodlums were, of course,
well represented, and they entered heartily
into the fun. Toe meeting became a perfect
pandemonium. Collins and Bott attempted
to speak, standing facing each other. This
is the scene which followed:
Bott— We have come here
Bolt— l am willing
Cries of "Bott." "Reed," "shut up," and
Bott— Now,gentk'inen,you cannot ruffle me
In that fashion.
Collins— l paid for this hall and— —
Bott— Mr. Chairman

Collins— l desire that Mr. Bott will sit
Bolt— Amoss is the choice of this meet
ing and I protest against his removal from
' Collins— l desire to tell you that lam tho
man that called the meeting and paid for
The uproar now drowned tho voices of the
two speakers, and Frank Price attempted to
quiet the discordant crowd. His appearance
raised further uproar. Eventually Dr. Amoss
secured order, and then L. E. Reed was
called on to sDeas. He was listened to with
respectful attention. Mr. Reed repeated that
he did not want the nomination ; he simply
decided to be a candidate at the solicitation
of friends and on the understanding that his
candidature was necessary in the interests
of harmony. Clarence E. Robb re
ceived a call after Mr. Reed had
spoken. He took the opportunity to an
nounce bis retirement as a candidate for the
Democratic nomination throwing in his sup
port with Reed. The announcement was re
ceived with cheers and cries of "Hurrah for
Robb." P. H. Kelly next Indorsed Mr. Reed's
candidature. He was certain Reed would be
elected. Frank Price attempted to speak.
The Reed men refused to hear him. Price
"Who is this?" asked Mr. Kelly; "What
does he own? Is he a taxpayer?"
Price desired to reply, but was not allowed
to do so, although loud cries were raised :
"Let us hear what ho has to say." P. R.
Scannele attempted to speak.but he also ulti
mately had to give waylbefore the uproar.
By some means the twoxanaidates were put
before the meeting to vote for. Tnerc was
only one conclusion as to the result: the Boti
men were outvoted, scores of motions were
made from all parts of the hall, and in the
midst of the row Dr. Amoss declared the
As soon as Dr. Amoss declared the meeting
adjourned. Dan Collins called for order and
had James Middlctou installed in the chair.
The chairman said they were going to ratify
Mr. Reed's nomination as the Democratic
candidate for the Second ward. Mr. Bott
protested against a hole-and-corner meeting
like that deciding such a question. Let the
fight be fought out at the primaries.
P. U. Kelly— The men are here, and we are
in a position to fight tho matter out to-night.
Bott— But there are only about lou Demo
Kelly— They are all citizens.
Bott— l am going to fight this matter out at
the primaries. Let every candidate have a
fair chance • -
Kelly— Yes: we went to the primaries two
years ago, and while Peed and I were in
vited to tako a drink, the ballot boxes were
stuffed, and you know it
■ More uproar ensued, when the chairman
declared he would vacate tho chair unless
order was maintained. There was at last an-
I other vote taken. The Reed and Bott men
divided, and Mr. Reed again received the
majority. The opposing factions, facing each
other, cheered for the two candidates until
they were hoarse. The chairman declared
the meeting closed, the lights were put down
and the audience left the hall in groups, ex
citedly discussing the merits of the candi
dates. - Mr. Bott told Mr. Kelly that he would
not take the opinion of that meeting as final ;
that the question would . only be settled, so
far as ho was concerned, at the primaries to
morrow night. JMtMM&ESPkI

large hull whs packed with a standing mas*
of .sovereign electors, when the chairman an
uouueed that the meeting was for the pur
pose of hearing a declaration of principles)
from the candidates for alderman. The
chairman and every one else mood
in a compact mass— elbow to elbow.
Immediately calls for various persons were
heard, but it wa« insisted amid opposition
that W. IHllmiuin should bo first heard and
the chairman so decided. The crowd jeered.
The chairman announced that the secretary
would rend Mr. llilimann'B *peeeh. "Read
it yourself" whs shouted by a half dozen.
"lie can't do it" chimed another. Mr. Mill
m.mn commenced to read his speech, but the
crowd shouted louder. The chairman an*
noiinced that the speaker was Indisposed : he
had bronchitis. O. L. Haese proceeded to
read the speech, which started with
the statement: "You must not ex
pect that I shall miiko a speeeb
creditable to a statesman." It declared
in favor of eight hours labor. lie could not
see how under the law be could indorse the
demand made by the laboring classes to ap
propriate to the uses of the city and its popu
lation the lines ot the city railway company.
After the reading of the speech then were
calls for Ulnkeus. Maloiiey and others. The
crowd grew exceedingly boisterous, but
Henry Hin kens was finally Riven an inning,
that ho used as well as he could, amidst the
confusion, in roasting the present council
for its general course, and particu
larly for voting 510,000 a year extra
pay Into the hands of the Pioneer l'ress
for public minting. He styled it robbery, and
said only one man voted against the measure.
Some cheered and others set up shouts for
Maloney. After a temporary lull. IKnkem
was asked if he favored the eight-hour
measure. He replied. "I am." "Then why
do you require the men under you at the
railroad shops to work ten hours and a half
a a.iyJ" The crowd cheered wildly. The
aspirant for office was clearly embarassed
and tried to explain by saying that practice
makes rules. That had always been the
rule, and the company required it. It was
then stated that the railroad master
mechanic had directed the hours to bo cut
down to an even ten. and that Hlnkena had
continued to exact the extra hour. This he
denied and was called a liar by several
voices. The crowd then intensified the con
fusion, some atto-npling to defend Hinktins,
and others hissing and shouting, "order," "s>
right." and the ppndomoulum Intensified. O.
L. Ilaese climbed upon a safe and tried to
make a speech, but the crowd Jeered
and shouted. One said, "Speak En
glish. Pete." He was filially de
clared out of order, as the meeting
was only intended for the purpose of hearing
from candidates for alderman. The chair
man then enid he would give the meeting ad
vice and instruct it, but the crowd would not '
listen to him., homo one shouted: "Look
out for the workingmen, Pete." A motion
to appoint a committee to interview the can
didates for aldermen was put several times)
and called forth storms of ayes and noes, but
was decided lost. A motion to adjourn
until Wednesday was repeatedly put,
to which a number of ayes responded '
and a storm of noes, hut was decided
carried. Mr. Wilson, an elderly gentleman,
tried to make a speech after ill's. in which he
commenced to say he was a property owner I
in the ward. "You are not a citizen," was
shouted, and . he was obliged to quit. An
other attempt was made to appoint a com
mittee, but the crowd would not listen. Some
one moved to indorse Aid. Qehan, but the",
motion was ruled out of order, and theiaeev
