CorwciL Psocmdisgs, july 5.?Beard of
Ald'mtn.?The Chair (Mr. Brown) laid before
the Board a communication from the Mayor,
nominating John T. Chauncey for Chief and
John H. Thompson for Assistant Engineer of
the Fire Department, In accordance with the
recommendation of the Washington Fire De
partment. Referred.
Mr. Barr presented a petition and bill to set
the curbetone and pave the footway on the
south side of sqnare No. 216. Also, a resolution
for a joint meeting of the Boards ou Monday,
July 11, for the purpose of electing an assessor
for the Second ward. Also, a resolution re
questing the committee on improvements to
inquire Into the expediency of collecting the
ccal ashee separately from other garbage and
using It for paving the streets. All of the above
were passed.
Mr. Noyes presented a petition asking for the
curbstones to be set and footway paved on the
west front of squares No. 387 and 3&B, accom
panied by a bill; which was read three times
and pasted.
Mr. Turton presented the petition of Mr.
Thos. J. Gait, representing that for a number
of years he ha3 had wharf privilege* *4 the foot
of nth stres*, and by reason of haviag made
many improvement?, he requests a lease for a
term of ten vears. Referred.
Mr. Pepper, from the committee on Improve
ments, reported back a joint resolution to gravel
footwHlRs in the Fifth ward, on 1st street west,
from B street north to Maryland avenue. Aleo,
bill to gravel B street, from New Jersey avenue
to Jd street east. Also, bill to grade and gravel
K street south, from 4th street east to the canal.
Also, bill lo grade and gravel I street south,
from 4th street east to the canal. All of whiih
passed.
Mr. Barr, from the committee on canals, re
ported back a bill to improve the Washington
Canal, by appropriating ?300 to repair the dam
at 3d street and the gates at V2th street. Passed.
Mr. Lloyd reported back a number of bills,
business of the last Council, with a view to
their reference to the committee on unfinished
business.
Mr. Lloyd called up irom the table the com
munication of Mr. Jnmes English, a candidate
for Alderman at the late election in the Fourth
Ward, end requesting a recount of the vote for
Alderman in order to fatisiy himself and
friends, as it was believed the commissioners
of election had inadvertently committed an er
ror. Mr. English requetts that the recount
may be made in the presence of the Mayor or
Register, or such other person as the board
may designate.
Mr. Lloyd moved the reference of the com
munication to the committee on elections, with
instructions to order a recount.
The Chair thought there was a manifest im
propriety in this board passing upon this mat
ter in this form.
Mr. Lloyd advocated the taking of action in
the premises as a matter of justice to Mr. Eng
lish and also the sitting member, Mr. Pepper.
He i Mr. L ) had no special interest in the mat
ter; ne simply wanted to have the matter rec
tified il injustice had been done either party.
He was apart from that, entirely disinterested
in the matter, and hoped the recount would be
ordered. _ . _
Mr. Pepper said he was perfectly satisfied
with the disinterestedness of the gentleman.
His manner showed how disinterested he was.
But did the gentleman come here and attempt
to hoodwink members of the board by pretend
ing that a ballot-box could not be stuffed four
weeks after an election in order to accomplish
certaiu ends ! This whole affair was part of a
scheme concocted by a set of dirty fellows to
oust the sitting member from a place in the
board. He would tell the gentleman that he
(the speaker) could plainly see bow disinter
ested were his motives. He (Mr L.) desired to
deprive the speaker of his seat, and ot hers were
at it. and would endeavor to accomplish their
ends by stuffed ballot-boxes.
Mr. Lloyd.?"I do not know what the gen
tleman means."
Mr.i Pepper.?"1 speak in plain English."
Mr. Lloyd said he could not still see what the
gentleman was driving at. The question was
a plain one, and a simple request was made,
and the Board was asked to do a simple duty.
The communication was a respectful one, and
it was but ja^t to give it acme attention. He
(Mr. L ) could not conceive what the gentle
man meant by his remarks about stuffed ballot
boxes. Did he pretend tosay that a ballot box,
delivered into the bands of the proper author
ity by the Commissioners of Election had been
tampered with since it was placed in the hands
of the Register of the city!
Mr. Pepper said he knew means ha>l been
liberally subscribed to secure his defeat and
the same means would be further used to up
set the election and there were those connected
with it who would not hesitate to Btuff boxes.
At the election he (Mr. P.) had been scratched
off the ticket as far as it could be done by the
influence of a dirty drivelling Hog, scratched,
too, by men who came here witnout any record
or character and now this same party have the
effrontery to ask that the ballot box be opened
alter a month has passed away. Yet they were
allowed unusual favors for one of Mr. Semmea'
particular friends was invited by the commis
sioner to witness the count. This was con
trary to all right and usage, and yet In the face
of all that we were asked to re-epen the box,
and this man English, comes here like a prating
baby and whines for a right which has an ex
istence only in his imagination. And the re
quest is made in order to satisfy himself and
friends. Does he suppose that any one wonld
believe that he would be justly entitled to a
seat, if at this late day a recount should give
him one or two more votes I He comes here
like a whipped cur whining and begging for a
seat..
Mr. Lloyd said the committee on elections
were Messrs. Canfleld, Plant and Noyes, all
gentlemen of character. It was simp'y asked
that they should make the count, and it was
not for a moment to be supposed that they
would be guilty of stuffing a ballot box.
Mr. Pepptr said he had made no charge
against any member of the committee, and he
could not, for he had the highest regard for
each member.
Mr. Lloyd said then if those who would be
authorized to make the count would not stuff
the box,be did not see what the gentleman was
driving at. Mr. Lloyd again disclaimed being
interested in the matter. He simply acted as
his duty appeared plain to him, and he believed
the reference should be made to the committee
on elections.
Mr. Gulick thought it would be a bad prece
dent to establish for the Board to pass upon
this subject and, order a recount, lor the com
munication gave no reason, bnt simply stated
it was for the purpose of gratifying himself and
friends.
Mr. Gulick moved to amend Mr. Lloyd's
motion, so as to refer the communication to the
committee without instructions.
Mr. Lloyd accepted the amendment.
The Chair thought, also, it would be a dan
gerous preceden t. He thought the communica
tion disrespectful, and stated an instance that
occnried some years ago, when he, himself,
was permitted (not by the present Register,
however,) to recount the ballots in his ward.
Besides, the boxes were kept in publio vaults,
aad were sometimes not very securely fastened
and preserved.
Mr. Plant moved to lay the petition on the
table.
Mr. Lieyd argued that the petition was as
respectful as language conld make it, and he
could not seeone disrespectful word tn it.
Mi. Brown explained that he did not mean
that the language was disrespectful, but we
were requested to do an aot and no reason was
given therefor. It was requesting an act to bs
done blindly and without a satisfactory reason;
and in that the communication was disrespect
ful. Mr. English had an undoubted right to
contest the seat of Mr. Pepper in a proper
manner, but this common ieatieu did not pro
fess to be for tlw purpose of contesting the
Mr. Noyes said he thought the matter might
properly go to the committee on elections, un
instructed, ss a matter of courtesy to the peti
tioner, and was willing to vote ag^'t laying

Mr. Moore stated that his object was to have
