to embarrass Mayor Medill in mak

broken Sat unlay by Aids. Evans ami
i'oss rer-jxiniling to their names on
the roll call when the council assem
bled in adjourned meeting. The
latter had but fulfilled the anticipa
tions of those who knew him and
who were fully convinced that upon
relied ion he would cease to be
associated! with any combination
that would hinder the business of the
titv. It is gratifying to know there
fore, that the Seventh ward alder
man has not disappointed his friends
in this respect and that he has shown
by his aets that while he has shown
he is willing to stand by his politi
cal associates in the council he is not
ODf that can be induced to go en
tirely beyond t lie bounds of reason
and play the baby as the "1'nion ad

day afternoon that lie had ceased his
'.-onueit ii m with the systematic op.
position to the mayor, that he had
arried out ail his obligations as re
gards the compact of the republican
aldermen, a course he h:ul not been
fullv in accord ith from the !irt.
Aid. Kvans voluntarial v went to the
mayor in the afternoon ami told him
lie could expect him at the meeting
in the evening, thu-showing a manly
course on Ins part that all will com
mend. Jut before the council met
two of tiu republican aldermen la
bored with Aid. Evans to induce him
to remain out. but Mich efforts were
in vain Mr. Evans wa firm and the
mayor found him true to his word.
The Ak;ts in presenting its compli
ments to Aid. Evans on his stand
hastens to say that it was net neces
sary to folio the suggestion of fas
tening a bell to him that he found
himself all right and when he did
the people found him as they usually
do on matters pertaining to the city,
on the fight side of the question.

and Mathes Huncher, of (Jarnsey
square. were similarly compli
mented. As to the other appoint
ments, the negative vote did not ex
ceed one anil it varied as to the al
derman easting it. When Charles
K. Wheelan's name was presented for
assessor. Aid. Roth asked to be ex
cused on the ground that the matter
of the appointing power was new in
the courts. Aid. Kinner asked to be
excused under a misapprehension as
to whose name it had been previous

Aid. Evans made a splendid speech
in commendation of Mr. Wheelan,
and the vote showed an aflirmative
&n the part of all aldermen voting.
