THE "AK1FUL DODGER."

OOO LleHC lartlon Voting
Twe Sides of 1 he.Ie.
The manner in which Aid. McCono
Cilo, the "maahien" candidate for the
mayoralty, first earned the title of the
"artful dodger" is a matter which, now
as he is posing us a candidate for the
mayorallty of the city, should interest
every citizen. The Abgcs has, hereto
fore, asserted tiat tho liquor license
question should t ot be made an issue in
a political can v as. That is a matter
that should be left, wholly and entirely.
with the city council. But tbe "ma
sheen 'and tbe "masheen' organ have
sought to bring it out as one of the ques
tions which should affect tbe results of
the pending mucicipal election. What
may be the ideu of the "masheen" in
pursuing such a course is a matter best
and only known to itself; unless it be to
pose its candidate on either side of the
question, acoordir g to the sentiments of
the people with whom he may come in
contact, in his piljrimage for votes.
Inasmuch therefore, esthe "masheen"
has sought to mate political capital out
of tbe license quettion. It will be inter
esting to note ho' McConochie dodged
the issue, finally rjcordine his vote as an
alderman, on both sides of tbe proposi
tion and thus earn ng from his friends the
title of -artful dodger." At the meeting
of the council Jan jary 11. the question
of increasing tbe stloon license to $1,000
per annum was introduced, Aid. Hamp
ton mnking a proposition that the matter
be submitted to ths people to vote upon
at this spring election. The city attor
ney was asked if the question was one
that could be properly submitted to vote
and he decided thai tbe proper method
to pursue was to rtgulate tbe name by
Aid. Hampton thereupon offered a
resolution that the ordinance committee !
be instructed to daw up an ordinance
making the saloon ffcense f 1,000 and no
sooner was the mction made than Aid.
McConochie seconded it. Viva voce vote
was taken, McConochie voting in the
affirmative. The mayor being unable to
decide bow the voie stood, called for the
ayes and noes. McConochie protested
against a recorded vote and argued in
favor of having the motion withdrawn.
The mayor declined to permit Aid.
Hampton's motion to be withdrawn and
ii oeing put on tn aye and nay vote,
McConochie Hopped completely over and
voted against his awn motion, thereby
snowing las cowaidice in carrying out
his own conviction a his desire to have
liquor license increased to $1,000 per an
