HOW MILLER WAS FOILED.
Kffect of the Kxpomire of Hit Secoinl
Shortly after 6 o'clock last evening
two figures were observed hurrying
over Ninth street in the direction of
(Eighth avenue one was tall and
! rather heavily set. wore along
j frock coat with brass buttons. His
'companion was a little, sawed-olT in
dividual, who looked up into the face
of the man with brass buttons by his
side with a sort of patronizing ex
pression as he quickened his pace and
caught his breath in his endeavor to
keep pace with the strides of the tall
fellow with the slouch hat. by his side.
The two men were evidently goinjj
somewhere and they were anxious to
get there quick. Reaching Eighth
avenue they steered direct for the
house of Fred Schroeder, the next
alderman from the iSceond ward.
Without giving the host time
to understand their mission,
the two men the big man ami
the little fellow hustled Schroeder
over to the house of ex-Aid. Charles
Durmann. Then the object of their
hurried visit was explained. The big
man now put forth his best possible
bluff. He told Mr. Schroeder that
the Aura's of that evening had said
that he (Miller) had approached
Schroeder with o eft ures of a deal by
which votes for Schroeder were to be
rewarded by voles for Mct'onochie.
Miller put on a great air of injured
innocence, and demanded of Schroe
der if he (Miller) had ever made any
such overtures to him. Schroeder
replied that he had not. Then Miller,
followed by Johnson, hurried to the
Union ollice and the result was a col
umn of matter published in this
morning's Union to the eiTect that Mr.
Schroeder hail denied that Miller ha. I
approached him with anv overtures
of u deal. The Union in the course
of its article states furthermore:
HhiI lli'unt of It ICrfon-.
Continuing Mr. Schroeder said that
he thought the story had been start
ed to injure him in the canvass, and
started up town on Monday for the
purjose of seeing Marshall Miller.
On seeing the latter he. in the pres
ence of two other men asked him
whether he had made such a proposi
tion to him (Schro'-der). and Miller
replied that he had not. Mr. Schroed
er stated that he had met Marsha!
Miller jut t ice since his nomina
tion, but not a word in relation to
polities had passed between them.
Mr. Schroeder also said that he would
meet Marshall Miller this morning
and accompany him to the ollice of
the evening paper for the purpose of
informing Editor Totter that the
st ory pu ll isheil in his paper was a
falsehood, and request him topublih
a denial of it. Marshal Miller made
the remark that he doubted whether
the Akgi's, would publish a denial,
whereupon Mr. Schroeder remarked
that he was iu favor of carrying on
an honest campaign, and if the
Aiwrs should refuse to publish the
denial he would sign an allidavit to
the above statement for publication
Now for the facts. In the first
place the Union boasts that Mil
ler had arranged a deal with the
friends of Mr. Schroeder originated
very near Miller himself one
who on Monday told in certain
localities about how curininirlv he
had made a dicker with the friends
of the democratic candidate for alder
man by which a vote for Schroeder
would be a vote for McConochie. It
was doubtless on hearing of this deal
that Mr. Schroeder himself sought
out Miller the same night and asked
him about it. and of course the chief
Hut as to what the Aki;i said
which led to the hastv tour across the
slough last evening. The language
of the article was that -the head of
the police went down into the Second
ward and had the audacitv to make
a proposition to the friends of Fred
erick Schroeder. the democratic ald
ernianic candidate, to go into a com
bination by which support from Mil
ler for Schroeder was to be rewarded
by votes for McConochie." That
assertion the Altors stands ready to
continue to maintain, and with equal
emphasis to reiterate that the propo
sition is emphatically and indignant
ly resented by Mr. Schroeder. How
ever that promised affidavit which
Miller promised to bring to the Alt
er us this morning, has not, up to the
hour of going to press, materialized.
Mr. Schroederin conversation with
an AkoL's representative this morn
ing admitted that an entirely wrong
construction had been placed on the
statement in the Akui s as far as it
referred directly to him. There is no
doubt but that Miller went at him
with his customary bluff and bluster,
and led him to think he had been
greatly misrepresented. whereas
there was nothing of the kind. The
ARGrs confined itself to facts in the

WILY MAC'S WAYS.
More r the McConochie Duplicity and
The Akgus of two years ago in re
ferring to the mayor's cowardice and
duplicity in carrying out his ante
election pledges said:
If up to the present time there has
been one trait in the mayor's char
acter that has won the admiration of
those who could see nothing else par
ticularly attractive in his nature, it
was his'decision and firmness, but
strange to say in the matter of his
appointments this time his vacillat
ing, swaying-from one-side-to-the-other
here to day there tomorrow,
disposition has been most conspie
iuous. For not only has he developed
duplicity in a most contemptible
form, but he has attempted to shoul
der onto others the responsibilities
which by virtue of his office are his.
He has shirked his duty and "shrunk
from it. He has made promises one
moment and broken them the next.
He has attempted to please all by
playing false to all and has permitted
himself to be ltjd so far into the ways
of deception that it is a charitable
view to say that he has become be
wildered and muddled.
Dodging tiie Ouctioit.
At the first meeting of the council
after McConochie's reelection, the
mayor did not make all of his ap
pointments, but left the naming of a
health commissioner to the next
meeting. When interviewed the next
day, after dodging the responsibility
on the appointment of a waterworks
superintendent, the fol lowing con ver
nation between the mayor and an
Aiiiifs reporter appeared, which may
be read with considerable interest at
the present time:
"Will you again present Mr. Ked
dig's name to the council?''"
"That I will not say."
"Will you present Mr. Murrin's
That I don't care to say."
Have you any reason for not pre
senting Mr. Murrin's name?"
"I don't care to answer that ques
tion." Have you anything to say against
Mr. Murriu personally or against his
management of the waterworks?"
"Xo, sir, nothing whatever. If
this was a private matter it would be
different, but in politics a man must
not get above his party unless he
wants to get knocked out."'
"Has the republican party brought
to bear on vou an influence to remove
"I don't care to be interviewed on
"Did you Jiot promise to appoint
Mr. Murrin in the event of the fail
ure of Mr. Reddig's confirmation?"1
"1 prefer to answer no questions."1
"Did you intentionally ignore the
appointment of a health commission
er last night, or was it an over
sight?" "It was intentional on mv part."
Because the two schools of medi
cine have gotten into a lirht and I
don't care to recognize either in par
ticular. I would prefer that they
settle it before anv appointment is
"Do you think it will be settled by
the next council meeting?"
"I don't know, I hope so."
"Do you think the question of su

The McConochie forlorn hope is
growing desperate indeed, and get
ting down pretty close to the last
resort, when it becomes necessary 10
days after the nominating conven
tion to induce a defeated can
didate for place on the ticket to pub
lish above his own signature a cer
tificate; that he is still in sympathy
with the ticket and calling upon his
friends to support the ticket. Such
a spectacle was presented in the
Union this morning when ' Capt.
Koehler the defeated candidate for the
city clerkship nomination endeavors
take the blame from McConochie for
his own defeat and place it on the
convention, and on himself for laxity
in the matter. Of course the captain
was too trusting, as far as his good
faith in Mct'onochie was concerned,
and it was not until it was too late to
exert himself that he found that he
had been betrayed.
The explanation on Capt. Koehler's
part does not mitigate the evil of the
mayor's conduct toward him, nor will
this new piece of cheek on the part of
the mayor in asking the captain to
befriend him, help the former's case
Havinr failed to produce the least
argument against the candidacy of
Mr. Medill, the Union resorts to its
usual stock in trade mud-slinging.
The Akgi'S never has, nor will it,
stoop to the assailing of its political
opponents' private characters. It is
above such disreputable tactics, but
if it were so inclined it would have
plenty of available material at hand
in the present campaign. However,
if virtue, sobriety and moral recti
tude is to be the issue, the Argus in
vites a comparison ol the two tickets.
Many things which are advertised
possess no value; but who would 6ay
that Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup possess
es no merit? It is the standard
remedy of our age.

charmingly rendered by Mrs. Charles
McIIugh, after which the Misses Mary
and Kate Roseberry, of Reynolds,
rendered a vocal duet which was fol
lowed by the singing of "Holy Mother
Guide His Footsteps," by S. T. and
D. Roy Bowlby. The closing num
ber was a piano and flute duet by
Richard Mittlebusher and Miss Anna
Mittlebusher. The programme was
a delightfully pleasant one, both the
pupils and those who assisted them
receiving much merited praise.
The Amittar Musical .:lut.
The Amateur Musical club gave its
lirst of a series of Schubert recitals
at the rooms of the Standard club
yesterday afternoon. The pro
gramme was opened with the read
ing of "The Life of Schubert." by
Mrs. Bishop. A vocal solo. "To Be
Sung Upon the Water," by Miss
Huey came next, after which came a
piano solo by Miss Stephen followed
by a piano and violin duet by Mrs.
McCabe and Miss Koehler. The next
number was a piano solo by Mrs.
Simon after which came a vocal. Mrs.
Kimball sang "The Wanderer," The
closing number on the programme
was an instrumental solo, Military

The McConochie Way Aealn.
The Union has the brazen effront
cry to announce upon authority of
the mayor that the latter did aiot im
properly influence the republican
primaries or republican convention,
or that he has not promised any ap'
pointments or encouraged anyone to
expect recognition for any kind of
party service. Of course everyone
knows that Chief Miller is out for his
health in his fight for the mayor and
is not exerting himself with anv ex
pectation of recognition for party
service. The same might be said of
the entire police force and of others
who are out in McConochie's behalf.
The mayor is completely plastered up
with written pledges, not only as re
lates to the distribution of official fa
vors, but as affects his own official
conduct should he be elected, and the
worst of it is, he can't keep any one
of his pledges without directly vio
