Th" ad journed meeting of the city
council was continued from last even-'
ing until Sat nrdav evening because
of the failure of a quorum to be pres
ent. This situation was deliberate v
brought about by the preconcerted
action on the part of the seven re
publican aldermen in determining to'
absent themselves and thus prevent
the discharge of the city's business.
All the DctiiiMTiit I'resent.
Mayor. ledill called the meeting to
order promptly at o'clock, the
douncil chamber being thronged as
soon as the ihors were opened, as
was the case at the Monday evening
session. Clerk Iluesing called the
roll. All the democratic aldermen
responded with an emphatic Here!"

ami l-'oss to respond to their names
seemed particularly u nex plainable in
that it was tliev who prevailed upon
the mayor to postpone the matter of
appointment:- until la-; night, and
Aid. Evans himself made the motion
t adjourn, the hitler's action in par
ticular being an c idonco of exceed

The laws and ordinances governing
the acts of the council ha c something-

the following taken therefrom indicate-:
At t he hour appoint ci! for meetings
the clerk shall proceed to call the
roll of members, matking the ab
sentees, and announce whether a
ipiorum is present. If a ijuorum be
present the council shall proceed to
the business before it. A lnajorily

mavor. shall be necessary to consti

A majority of the aldermen-elect
shall constitute a ijuorum to do busi

the attendance of absentees, under
such penalties as may be prescribed
Each member of the city council
shall attend promptly each meeting
of the council and continue present
during such meeting, and on failure
to do so. lie shall, unless excused by
the council, forfeit and pay the sum

1'iid- rthi- act there was nothing
to do hist coning but to adjourn to a
future lime, which bv Aid. Corken's
motion was lixed at Saturday even

the same act under which the pro-j

stames In- would be warranted in ex
ercising anv prerogative that he
might consider ve.-ted in him. At all
events the Ai:;rs hopes and fully be
lieves that Mayor Mcdill will hold his
position and yield in no respect to the
aldermen who are thus seeking to
embarrass him in the discharge of
his duties. Mr. Mcdill should teach

move those who are seeking to force
their services on him and assume the
full powers belonging to the execu

Husiness involving the interest of
tax payers should lie no longer ham
pered by revolting aldermen, who
don't know the difference between
child's play and sworn duty.
While understanding the motive of
Mayor Mcdill in deferring his ap
pointments until last evening in def
t'erence to the wishes of republican
aldermen. Tiik AitGt s was neverthe
less disappointed when he consented
to yield to such influences.
Having thus unwisely listened to
those who were in no-Hense his
friends, he must uow see that it was
folly to have anticipated any differ
ent results, and that with such peo
ple it is useless to make peace or
promote harmony as was Mr. Medill's
hope. As it is. the only course left
open to the mayor is go straight

a good deal as if he had gone through
a Kansas cyclone or had settled a

There was ijuite a little brush of
excitement around the Hock Island
National Hank this morning when
Uncle Sam's wagon in charge of Capt.
M. J. (Jrcalish and two soldiers came
over from Hock Island arsenal to get
the paymaster's little monthly allow
ance. " While the wagon was backed
up to the bank entrance ami the
money was being handed over to
Capt.(Jrealish the loud report of a
o-un startled the book-keeper and
clerks, each looking up and expect
ing to gaze down the muzzle of a re
volver, while visions of the Dalton
boys flitted across their bewildered
fancies. Outside there was a simi
lar scene. Passers by heard the dis
charge of the gun and in breathless
exjK'ctancy stood waiting to see some
bold bad men emerge from the bank,
mount their horses and ride away.
Hoth were disappointed, however, as
it was discovered when the smoke
had 'cleared away that it was caused
by one of the guards, who had been
loading his piece, accidentally dis
charging it, causing all the excitement.

The l;nyer Case
It nosv t urns out that the indict

Elisha M. Hoyer for murder, charges
him with being the instigatr in the
drowning of Mable Ea( Jrange's child.
The indictment is in two counts:
the first charges him with being an
accessory ln-fore the fact, which, ac
cord ing to law . iiakcs him equally
guilt v with the principal, and the
second count declares him to be fo.

According to the story upon w hich
the charges are brought and the e i-
leiice upon which the indictment is
found. Hover's lirst con nect ion w i t h

abortion upon the peiso;s of Ma.be!

The republican aldermen act like
children, and say we won't play.
The spoilsmen lead the men who
ought to know better to further their
schemes to be in it. It would seem
that the Seventh ward alderman
ought to feel that he is putting him
self and his college at a disadvan
tage before this community by lend
ing himself to obstructing business.
W hat would be said if republican I".
S. senators were to prevent a ijuorum
to make President Cleveland consult
them as to who should be in his cab

the council on Saturday night this
childishness will be over and that
Mr. Mcdill will be given the consid

entitles him to. Hki-i hi.h an.

Did the Union conceive the bright
idea which seems to be actuating the
republican aldermen? At any rate it
claims credit for it by-quoting t his
morning the following which ap
peared in a former issue: Perhaps
there are other things that they (the
aldermen) can do if they are so mind

publican aldermen to play hookey."'
