Considerable business was disposed of
at last night's meeting of the municipal
body. Aid. Knox brought up the sub
ject of the dump boat being anchored at
the foot of Seventeenth street and spoke
of the complaint arising therefrom. He
moved that the health commissioner use
his judgment 88 the moving of the boat,
and the motion was carried.
Another progressive step was taken on
motion of Aid. Knox, who moyed that
question of erecting a new scale building
and stand on Market Square be referred
to the license and market committee and
the mayor with power to act, $ 500 out
of the contingent fund being appropri
ated for that purpose.
The matter of passing an ordinance for a
sewer through the Columbian grounds
for the purpose of draining ground in
that vicinity was brought up by Aid.
Guyer, the ordinance being accompanied
by a right of way through the Columbian
grounds in the form of a quit claim deed.
A discussion came up as to what the
city's share of the special assessment
would be, and the matter was referred to
the sewer and ordinancs committee to
Aid. Dan Corken moved that as the
weather was warm and a number of citi
zens were in waiting, that the rules be
suspended to admit of new busine.-s. This
being done, he presented the resolutions
adopted by the mass meeting of working
men at Harper's theatre on Sunday night
and moved their adoption. Aid. Kennedy
then movnl that they be referred to
the mayor and city attorney as to legal
poiuts whicb was carried. As a game
would probably be played before another
meeting of the council, Aid. Huesing
moved the adoption of a reso'ution in
structing the mayor to notify the chief
of police not to interfere with the games
until the council could further investi
gate as to its premises in the matter and
the resolution was adopted.
The petition of a majority of the prop
erty ho' lers abutting Fourteenth avenue
requesting that the Dayenport & Rock
Lland strett railway company be grant
ed a right of way along that avenue from
Thirtieth to Thirty-eighth street, togeth
er with an ordinance presented for the
same was referred to the ordinance commit
tee and city attorney to report. As con
siderable time Lad already been spent in
discussion, Aid. Kennedy moved to ad
journ until next Monday night, when the
matter of sons new plats in the Seventh
ward will be dise ased.
A rather unpleasant affair oc
curred after the council had
adjourned. Maj B;ards!ey through
no solicitation of anyone connected with
the late movement for Sun iay base ball
took it upon Liui'-iir to addres the coun
cil i:i behalf of tucb. and being di pleased
at the m iyor's ac'iin in rapping for ordtr
af'.er ho had spoken Sometime waited at
the foot of the stain leading to the coun
cil chamber utiiil the holy had
adjourned. Wnen the aldermen
wire p-.sirg dowu the s'-drs, the m.j .r
addressed insulting icmarks to some of
them. Majcr UcConochie paused at the
foot of the stairs and inquired of the ma
jor if he was waiting for him, and the
latter being not a', all hirr-s-if. made an
assault upon the mayor but was quickly
thrown back by several policemen, and
restrained until the mayor h:;d proceeded
It may be proper to reiterate 'bat Mii
Beraiihiey was in no sense present on be
half of those interested in Sunday base
ball. The affair is certainly to be re
gretted and would probably not have
occurred bad not the mior been in a
condition not at all himself.
John Higney was fined $5 and cost in
the police court this morning for intoxi
cation. Oa complaint of Mrs. Bridget! Mc
Donough, Wesley Herbert was yesterday
placed under bonds of f50 to keep the
peace for the term of six months.

Chicago, June 21. A heavy thunder
storm preceded the opening of the nation
al convention this morning, people in the
gallery hoisted umbrellas lo protect 1 hem
selves from the rain which came freely
through the io f of the wigwam. The
convention h.l! presented an animated
scene when Chairman Bruce of the dem
ocratic national committee called the con
vention to order. Owens of Kentucky
was elected temporary chairman and re
sponded with a speech of an enthusiastic
character wnich was just as enthusiastic,
ally received. The '.tsk in front of the
chairman bears the incription: "Cleve
land and Hendricks were nominated over
this desk July 11, 1884."
The roll of states was called for creden
tials, resolutions and naiional committee
men. The election of Hon. Ben T. Cable as
national committeeman for Illino s by
acclamation is considered a great com
pliment to that gentleman nni meets
with the approval of the Illinois dem
ocrats. English of Indiana introduced a reso
lution admitting all ex Union soldiers to
the unoccupied seats in the Ballery, which
wa? on motion of Bronsnn of Kentucky re
ferred to toe committee on resolutions.
A flood of resolutions, varied and unim
portant followed and were properly re
ferred. A delegate from Illinois here introduc
ed a resolution expressing sympathy with
James G. Blaine in the loss of his son
Emmons, and the name of Blaine was
wildly cheered, the resolution being carried
with a will.
A communication was then read i.ivit
ing the delegates to visit the World's Fair
crounds, and at 1:58 the convention ad
journed nntil 11 o'clock tomorrow morn
