Council met inregular session last even
ing and was called to order shortly after
T o’clock by the president. 'There was
an unusually good attendance, but one
absentee being noted.
The first business was the administra
tion of the usual oath to Henry Schudde
mage, the newly-clected member from
the Sixth ward, to fill the vacancy caused
by the death of Mr. M’'Naer several
months ago.
After he had been sworn in and taken
his seat as a {ull fledged member of the
lower Dbranch, clerk Shiffler read the
minutes of the last two meetings, which
were approved.
On suspension of the rules Mr. Fem
ing offered a resolution that a committee
of conference be appointed to adjust the
differences existing between the two
branches on the tax levy ordinance.
< Mr. Hummel offered a petition with re
spect to an alleged nuisance existing in
Blackberry avenue and asking that it be
abated by the placing of a sewer therein.
The petition was signed by a number of
tenants living along said avenue. A re
monstrance {rom Col. Hunter, proprietor
of the Lochiel liotel, stated that the con
struction of shie proposed sewer would
endanger the foundation of his buildings
and for any damage thevefrom he would
hold tbe city responsible. Both commu
nieations were received and filed.
Mr. Frankem submtted a bill of dam
ages from John Fitzpatrick for loss to his
property by the bursting of & main at
East and Briggs street. The amount
claimed was $5O. Refeired to Finance
Permission was given David Wilson to
remove trecs and fences on Bailey street.
The report of the Highway Committee
recommending that the coatract for a
road roller be awarded to the Jlarrisburg
car manufacturing cou.pany, at £5,000,
was read, when Mr. Bay wanted to know
all about the “machine.”’ He said if the
Highway Committee was as blind in she
matter as himsclf it was a bad piece of
business to award such a contract. He
wanted to kuow all about the utility of
the roller.
Mr. Fleming said it was no time to dis
cuss the utility of the roller—that matter
had been decided by Council before.it
was agreed to advertise for proposals.
After fuarther desultory talk the question
of granting the award came up and the
recommendation was adopted.
The report of the same committee
granting the contract of removing reser
voir dirt to J. S. Sible was also adopted.
The fire committee negatived the peti
tion in refcrence to the reserving of
ground at the old reservoir for market
An ordinance offered by Mr. Melvin
provides for the opening of Shanois street
from Front to Race. Refeired to the
Highway committee. "
Mr. Lyme presented an ordinance to
establish the line of Derry s‘reet to the

This is the ordinance referred to in the
foregoing communications.
Ordinance No. 639, file of Common
Council, establishing a highway depart
ment, was read, when Mr. Bay arose and
questioned the propricty of instituting
such a department.
Mr. Fleming spoke in favor of the act
and thought such an oflice would re
sult in great good to the city. He be
lieved the highway commissioner should
be a man acquain‘ed with the best meth
ods of improving the streets. Messrs.
Miller and Swartz (Fourth ward) ob

Special Dispateh to the Press.)
GaLexa, I, Feb. 24.—Thomas Shan
non, the original hero of Chickamauga,
died at his home, near this cily, yester
day, aged 72 years. He was a member
of the 96th Illinois Infantry during the
late war, and gained the appellation of the
“Hero of Chickamauga'’ b{ capturing,
single-handed and alone while on picket
duty, three armed rebels and marching
them before General Grant at head
quarters. |
FEpitor TELERGRAPH—Dear Sir: I find
the enclosed paragraph dgoing the rounds
of the newspapers, and if my memory
serves me right, Gereral Grant was in
Vicksburg at the time ot the battle of
Chickamauga, September 19th and 20th,
1863. I don’tthink the General came to
us at Chickamauga until in October tol
lowing, and so if Thomas Shannon took
his three rebels to Grant’s headquarters,
he must have marched across the States
of Alabama and Mississippi, through a
lostile country, about, I judge, 400 miles.
It is a pity to have the acts of a brave
soldier belittled by a misstatement etc.
If I am right please calla halt and make
the statement correct. Yours,
Counsel for John M'Ginnis Ask That His
Death Sentence be Commuted.
Joseph De F. Junkin and Hampton L.
Carson, counsel for John M’Ginnis, sen
tenced to be hanged in Philadelphia on
March 4, for the murder of his mother-in
law, have addressed a strong appeal to
Governor Pattison requesting a commu
tation of the death sentence to life im
prisonment, or at least a reprieve for an
extended period. In their communication
counsel reviews the evidenee taken at the
trial and the conclusions of the commis
sion in lunacy, which examined M’Ginnis,
and concludes as follows :
“To set aside their solemn judgment,
to reverse the conclusion of sci
ence, to brush away as incompetent
and inconclusive results deliberately
arrived at, after painstaking and
conscientious examination by those
who have made the determination of such
questions the special study of their lives;
to treat as valueless an impartial verdict,
reached after days of inquiry, involving
great personal and professional sacrifices
without requital of any kind, save the ap
proval of the conscience in boldly speak
ing out the truth, as they believe and feel
it to be, in order to hurry anirresponsible
lunatic to the gallows, would be revolt
ing to every instinct of humanity. The
violated majesty of the law demands no
such sacrifice. When the mind is smit
ten with disease, human responsibility
ceases. Punishment wrought upon a
madman is not retributive justice. It is
vengeance and extermination. This is
not and never has been the theory
of our criminal code. If it is to be
8o in the future, let the Legislature so de
clareit in no uncertain terms that all
may be warned thereof. If these phy
sicians, than whom none stand higher in
their profession, are ignorant of that
which they declare, then who is compe
tent to decide the question? If they are
sincere, than whom none bear higher
reputations for truth and candor—then
who is to be trusted? We do not
doubt for one moment the sincerity of
the dissenting member of the commis
sion; we do not qgestion his capacity.
But when the judgment of professional
men of the brightest qualifications, who
arc at leasthis cquals, is arrayed against
his solitary opinion, however plausible or
captivating to the public ear, what safety
is there in a multitude of coun
selors, or what practical rale
is there for the government of men, if the
opinion of the one is to be accepted and
the judgment of the many is to be flung
aside as worthless? We appeal to youin
strong terms, becausc we deeply feel the
protound importance of this question—
because we can trace no good results
from savage and previous punishment;
because we shrink from the public exhi
bition of such an execution; because our
duty demands that in this hour of deadly
peril to our client we raise our voices in
his behalf. We appeal to you in the
name of reason, of humanity, and of the
benignity of the law, to remit the pen
alty of death.”

Democratic Witnesses Examined at New
Orleans—Their Statements of the Con
dition of Affairs in Cc piah’ County,
Miss.—Cengressman Wise and Sen
ator Vance in Antagonism
Democratic Wltnesdses Examined Yester
NEw OrrLraxs, Feb. 26.—The Senate
committee investigating the election out
rages in Copiah county, Miss., yesterday
examined the following witnesses called
by the Democrats :
- Uriah Millsaps testified that he was a
Republican and a circuit judge under the
Republican regime. He considered that
Copiuh county was one of the most con
servative in Mississippi. Matthews had
been a candidate for sheriff for the past
fifteen years until the last election. He
was only elected once. All the male
members of the Matthews family were re
garded as fighting men. |
Judge T. J. \%hnrton, of the Ninth
Judicial district, testified that he had
more trouble regarding grand juries inJ
Copiah than in any other county in the
district. It bad been generally asserted
and believed that the grand juries of the
county had been manipulated in the in
terest of one party with a view of prose
cuting their political opponents. Mat
thews was represented as a ruling spirit
in such manipulation.
The witness continued: On the Friday
night preceding the eleetion President
Matthews told District Attorney Foote
that he wanted to see us at his room.
Matthews said that Thompson, with an
armed body of men, had murdered an in
nocent, inoffeusive man the week before,
and that another party would leave town
on a similar marauding expedition. I
asked for their names, saying that I would
issue a writ, and have every one of
them arrested. He said that the sheriff
would probably find some excuse for
refusing to execute the writ; that the at
tention of the grand jury had been called
to the matter, but no action had been
taken, and that there was a conspiracy to
murder his political friends, himself and
his family. ‘“When my two sons left for
Oxford (}Sollege a few weeks ago,”’ he
says, “I took their hands, and, with tears
in my eyes, I said: ‘My sons, I do not
know how soon you may be summoned
home to avenge the assassination of your
father.” They replied, with tears in their
eyes, ‘We are ready to obey the sum
mons.’ "’
Matthews said four of his uncles had
been killed, but their deaths had been
avenged. There were four men whom
he wanted to kill, then he would never
again lay his head on a pillow, but, being
outlawed, would declare war against the
human race
Judge J. E. Cooper, of Mississippi, tes
tified that J. P. Matthews was a danger
ous man. Heconsidered people of Copiah
county orderly and law-abiding as a rule.
He did not approve of the killing of Mat
thews, nor did he believe the negroes of
Copiah county would rise against the
whites. Dr. ]:g A. Rowan, a member of
the Legislature from Copiah county, testi
fied that the canvass of the last election
was very peaceable.
E. G. Wall, commissioner of emigra
tion, testified, that he never saw J. P.
Matthews but once. Mr. Johnson, who
intrcduced him, asked Matthews how he
could consistently support Colonel King
for Governor, against whom he had
published such a violent -circular.
Matthews replied that the -circular
was all a lie; that King was
all right now; that at that time he (Matt
hews) had 500 organized men in Copiah
county and had gotten out the circular
for the purpose of aggravating King,then
a leading Democrat, and his party to vio
lence, “when,’”’ Matthews said, “wec in
tended to Kkill every white man, woman
and child in Copiah county.’’
Congressman Wise's View of the Outrages.
WASHINGTON Feb. 26.—The principal
witness before the Danville investigating
committee yesterday was John 8. Wise,
the Readjuster Congressman-at-Large
from Virginia. He said that the riots
grew out of the incerdiary utterances of
Democratic campaign orators, and quoted
from the Richmond State and other
Democratic newspapers to show that the
minds of the people were inflamed aud
the race issue made prominent at all the
political gatherings of that party during
the campaign of last fall.
During the :xamination of Congress
man Wise Senator Vance complained
that the witness was making a political
speech. Several sharp passages-at-arms
Mr. Wise said to Senator Vance :
‘““When 1 first knew you, thirty years
ago, you belonged to the K. N. (Know-
Nothing) party. Now you belong to N.
K. (Negro-Killing) party.”’
Senator Vance retorted: ‘“When I first
knew you you were a secession Demo
crat. Now you are a—"’
Mr. Wise. ‘“Hardly. I was only nine
years of age, and could not have been
much of a secessionist.”’
Senator Vance. ‘‘Oh, well, when a man
pleads the infancy act I have nothing
more to say.’’
A little later Mr. Wise said the atti
tudes of men had changed. ‘“You (to
Senator Vance) come up to teach us De
mocracy and debt-paying when you had
repudiated your own debts and had never
been a Democrat.”” Senator Vance ad
mitted Laving been a Know-Nothing,*but
defended himself against the charge of
ever being a repudiator. A mau who
said he had ever advocated repudiation
stated that which was untrue. Mr.
Wise hoped Governor Vance did not
intend that tobe an insult. Senator Vance
said he did not, but wished merely to
state the fact in replty to some assertions
personal to himself. Mr. Wise disa
vowed any intention to be offensively
personal. He avowed his unalterable
determination to continue the war upon
the Bourbon party. He admitted that
tbe blacks were united in the proportion
of about ninety per cent. on one side,
while the whites were nearly equally de
The Influence of the Colored Re
publicans in the Coming State
ArLaxTa, Ga., Feb. 29.—The prin
cipal interest attaching to the pro
ceedings of the Republican State Con
vention to be held on April 9, arises
from the fact that it controls the vote
in the National Republican Conven
tion without power to add strength
to the actaal contest. The old fight
between the colored men, who feel
that they have been ignored in the
distribution of offices, and the whites,
who are Republicans only for the sake
of office, showed itself as still ready
to break out. In the last three or
four State Conventions the white ele
ment has been worsted. In the con
vention which nominated delegates
to the Chicago Convention four years
ago it was boldly declared by E.
Belcher, colored, that the whites were
after *“sugar;’” that they desired
places as delegates to Chicago for the
purpose of using them s levers for
Presidential recognition, and it was
now time for the colored men to in
sist on having ““sugar” too.
As a result the colored men tock
pessession of the organization of the
party, elected a majority of colored
delegates, sppointed Pledger, colored.
Ch irman of the Executive Commit
tee, and imagined themseives on the
road to preferment. This action
arcused the hostility of the whites,
who headed by Jonathan Norcrose,
white Republican, of 40 years’ stand
ing, took steps toward organizing a
white man’s Republican convention,
which, they claimed, was to be advi
‘sory. For two years biekerings be
tween the races continued, and, when
the convention of two years ago met,
it split into the Capitol Convention
and Couart-house Convention,the white
lezders running the latter body. Each
claimed control of the body, and each
adjourned at deadly war with each
other. In time, however, the whites
outm=nceuvred the blacks, and sune
ceeded in sbelving Pledgoer for Buck,
white, clerk of the Kederal Court.
The colored men, howaver, were not
pacified. They have been holding
meetings throughout the State, in
which the conduct of the whites has
been severely denounced. ‘
The unanimity with which the ‘
whites seem to have uvited on Arthur
for the nomination has had the effect
of ‘driving off the colored men, who
declare that they want no more white ‘
men I'residents. About 20 members
of the committee were present at the
meeting yesterday, a large proportion
of them being colored. Among other ‘
resolutions,the following wasadopted:
Resolved, That the Republican
State Central Committee, recogunizing
the imperative duty of the Republican
party to deliberate with patriotie ¢iu.
tion upon the question of a nomina
tion, nevertheless, with enthusiasm,
indorse the action of the Republicans
of the great States of Ohio and New
York, and other States of the Uniou,
in their approval of the able, wise,
conservative and patriotic administra- |
tion of P’resident Arthar. |
This was considered at first a boom ‘
for Arthur, but Col. John C. Bryant,
Secretary of the committee, remarked
to the reporters: “That does not
mmean that we are for Arthur for a
nomination.” It is therefore taken
that the resolution was a cheap way
of repaying the President for his nu
merous kindnesses to the party lead- 1
ers 1n Georgia. .
“For whom are the Repubiicans
in the State?” wuas asked of Cul
‘] canmet speak for the party,” he
said, “but I am sure that the delega
tion to Chicago will go uninstructed.
We have no weight in the Electoral
College, and will not attempt to dic
tate the policy of the p rty in a nomi
nation. We are for the strongest
man, if he is a gooa one, but we do
not want simply an avsilable mau.
We want no repitition of the Hayes
“What was the matter with Hayes?”
* Hayes was a traitor to the Scuth
ern Republieans ; he was ¢ neither fish,
flesh, fowl, nor good red herring.’ He
did more to divide the [Republican
party in Greorgia than any other man.
As it now stands, I regard Arthaur,
Blaine, Logan, and Edmunds as ths
strongest men. Dlaine has a very
strong following in Georgia.” With
this Col. Bryant stepped aside with
the colored delegates.
When the State Convention meets,
on April 9, lively scenes may be ex
pected. The colored men are coming
up determined to rule the roost. They
will elect the Chairman, dictate the
composition of the delegation to Chi
cago, and so instruct them that Geor
gia will be an uncertain quantity in
the Convention. There is no man in
the Republican party who stands
nearer to the colored heart than Ro
bert Lincoln. If he shounld be out of
the race, Blaine will stand the best
showing. Blaine’s bold, blunt frank
pess has a strong hold on the people.
The on!y chance for Arthur of getting
the delegation is the ability of the
white office-holders to secure the or
ganization of the Convention,by w nich
‘means a cutand-dried programme
_might be rushed through and the body
adjourned before the colored men
could recover from their surprise, but
this is altogether improbable, as the
Georgia colored man is a good parlia
mentarian and cannot be easily put
The selection of one colored repre
