It is a beautiful pcctn(-lc the re

every measure that comes up, as
it Las invariably done so far.
The aldermen are not elected to
serve the republican party or the
democratic party. They are elected
to serve the people and to guard the
(Htople'a interests without regard to
tiolitics. creed or nationality. The
kits' play that has so far character
ised the proceedings of the new
council should cease.
Ai.i. Kir is sadly misguided and
misinformed when he asserts that if
left to a vote of the tax-payers thn.
tourths would register themselves
against paving Seventeenth street
south of inth avenue. It is unfor
tunate that the matter cannot be
submitted to the p-ople. If it could
be there would lie a majority of three,
fourths of the voters in favor of pav
ing not only Seventeenth, bnt of
Twentieth as well, south of Ninth
avenue. The vote in the Fourth ward
alone at the last election was a fair
criterion to form this estimate by.
The people as a whole are not con
trolled by the wealthy land owners
who are seeking to wall in the city.
Col. Merrlaaa Mad Candidal.
In reply to a letter from one of his
southern Illinois democratic li lends.
Col. Morrison sonic time ago wrote
that he had long since determined
not to bu a candidate for the United
States senatorial nomination. This
letter, which is now male public for
the first time, is as follows:
Wasiiikotox. 1. C. April 9,
1894 Dear Sir: I have yours of
March IS, saving: 'If southern Ill
inois is to have the senator, your
friends think yon should be the
man," ant! after the very considerate
suggestion that "of course, if Chi
cago claims it and has votes enough
she will get it," you ask, "Do you
want us to be for you?" Though re
siding at the state capital, Senator
Palmer is, by our friends further
north, credited and charged to south
ern Illinois, and it is not unlikely
that northern Illinois mav claim the
candidate this time. This I infer
from your letter, is your view of the
matter. Influenced by considera
tions like those and others more per
sonal, I determined long since not
to he a candidate and have frequently
said so. The committee in calling
the convention, properly, I think left
it to the convention to nominate for
senator or not, as the democracy may
deem it advisable. It is reported that
the republicans now having a ma
jority of the supreme court, will
attempt to set aside the apportion
ment recently made and go back to
theirs of 12 years ago, or compel a
new apportionment acceptable to
their minority in the present legis
lature. Our" supreme court is not
likely to thus undertake to elect the
senator. Yet, should the convention
deem it advisable to nominate a
candidate, a democrat so selected
would withoutdoubt respond to such
a call, and the oblijjajion to do m
win be the same whether the late
apportionment is or is not to bcover-
I am not unmindful of the friendly
purpose of your letter, which but for
the urgency of oth-r matters would
have been answered earlier. Ke-
illiam K. Morrison.
Tbo rroeeedioB la Iteartnc at Daw
Danville, Ills., May 15. The caso
brought by the Republicans to nullify the
apportiuumeut of this state into legisla
tive districts by the la-t Democratic legis
lative came up U-fore Judge Bookwalter
iu court here according to appointment.
Ia spite of the importance of the case ic
having rc-ally a nationacharnctvr it did
not attract a grvut number of people to
the circuit court when it came up. There
was a circus lu town, and this rival at
traction proved a much stronger one for
the pcoj.le of Danville, and drew the
crowd. Those who were present were
mostly politicians and attorneys interested
in the raec, and among these were James
II. Clark, chairman of the state Repub
lican central committee; ax-Attorney lien
era! George Hunt, in charge of the prose-
cusiou of the case for the Uepublicans;
Attorney Oeaeral Moloney and DjIos P.
l'lielps, counsel for the defense; Thomas
Carson, and mont of the Vermilion coun
Tba Aanoaded Aaswer Offered.
The rase is entitled James P. Fletcher
vs. Walter C Tuttlo. As soon as it was
called the amended answer agreed upon
by the Democratic counsel was offered
for Cliug. Kitiibrougli, who spoke, said
that the amended answer was more par
ticular and specifi: than the original
answer prepared for Defendant Tuttle by
State's Attorney Wilson. It also raised
the question of Jurisdiction of the court
and set forth that Complainant Fletcher
did not hnve such a particular nnd per
sonal interest iu the case as would justify
him ia brtugiug the suit. Jlr. Kimbrough
closed Lis argument with the remark that
the Democrats ought to have some say
about how the pleadings should be shaped.
and not leave that important matter
wholly to the Republicans as is done in
the original bill and original answer, both
prepared by Republicans..
Some Kanlaaatory Btatrmente.
Which calls for explanation. The de
fendant in the case is County Clerk Tut
tie, and his special counsel is S. G. Wilson,
the Republican states attorney here. il
sou was the author of the first answer,
and he being a Republican naturally the
llcmocratic managers iu the Btate do not
care to 'rust him with the case. Hence
the amended answer. Fletcher is the pros-
ective Kepuhlican legislatwe candidate.
The amended answer differs from the
answer in thst it alleges that Cook county
was divided into districts ou the basis of
75,1X10, the same ratio as the remainder of
the stute. The original answer admits
that Cook county was divided into districts
on the basis of Til.OUO.
Want to tiring t'p Dig Question.
Attorney Hunt in objecting to the
amended answer said the issue had long
since been closed and that Complainant
Fletcher had no notice that the Democrats
intended to present an answer at this
time. For these reasons he asked the
court to overrule the motion. Before pass
ing on the motion Judge Bookwalter
requested the attorneys to read the bul,
answer and amended answer. After the
reading Judge Bookwalter asked Kim
brough wherein he claimed it different
from the original answer. In reply Kim
Ve deny that Mr. Fletcher has an
prcial and personal interest in the case.
This is admitted in the first anawer. We
also wish to raise by til is answer the valid
ity of the apportionment acts of lW!uil
is?l. In the amended answer we deny
that Cook county is divided on a different
basis from the rest of the state. "
The Attorneys Natarally SMfler.
Here Calhoun, for complainant, spoke
up and aaid: "Before tue court makes an
entry we desire to be beard. We under
stand that the defendant, Tuttle, did not
prepare this amended answer and has uo
desire to file it."
"He signed his nam to it," said Kim-
brooch, "by his attorney, & u. Wilson."
Here the court took a hand and aaid
"Does tlx amended answer raise any new
question of fautf
To this iueation the attorneys could not
agree on au answer. 1 be Democrats aaid
no, while Calhoun earnestly iualsled that
it raised the question of fact regarding the
validity of the acts of 1C and 171, which
had no proper place in tuis
MOLONEY MAKES A SUGGESTION,

tbo Jadsvo Giro a Ueclaioo).
Attorney General Moloney bera remark'
ed that it waa the best modern practice to
permit the written pleading to fully and
sotnpletely set forth all the facts Mid in
this case this was not done by the original
answer prepared by the Republicans
Attorney lluut closed the argument,
claimiug that the aineuded auswer raised
several immaterial poiuts and new is
sues that should not be permitted. The
new auswer raises questions that will
seriously delay t ne trial, some of tnem be
ing conveniently concealed. The issues
of the case were closed over a Week ago
and continued, on the solicitation of the
Democrats until now for argument, and
he earnestly insisted that no new issues
should now be injected in the case.
The argument in the case, I presume
said Judge Bookwalter. "will not differ
materially whether or not the amended
answer is filed. I shrill, therefore, hear
the argument first, and if I then deem
the amended answer necessary for a full
determination of the suit will allow it to
be filed nunc pro tunc."
Kunbrongh then offered petition .crocs-
bill and answer of William J. Biues who
has received the indorsement of the Ver
million county Democratic convention for
representative to tho state legislature.

be fair and constitutional; attacks the ap

makes lue same general argumeut that is
contained in the n mended answer of De
fendant Tuttle. -Our only iiuipose by
these papers," said Kimbrougb, "is to as
certain, if the court declares the act of l8'J3
unconstitutional, whether there has ever
been an apportionment act that was con
stitutional. The act of 18J3 was cvrtaiuly
fairer than the nets of 18S! and 1S71."
