When the Council Legislative Committee tt
djourned last Wednesday evening it did eo
d meet Monday evening in the First Branch
baraber, and at that meeting the Washing- rf
on Kali and County Commissioners LegUla* m
ive Committees were invited to be preeent w
ind join In the deliberations, it being under* l
tood, of course, that members of neither of ni
hem would have any vote.
Itwasnotuntilaboutdo'ciock last night that c
iquorum of the Council committee waspros- '
mt, and at that time Mayor Egerter took the u
>hair and called the body to order. There *
vere present on behalf of the Counoil.Com* ,
uittee Messrs. W. B. Simpson. P. L. Klinbor- ?
y, M. lteiily, Win. Hastings, Itobt. Slmpe6n,

L'apt. Andy Wilson aud City Solicitor Cald- t
well. '8quire Schultxe, of the County Com*
mlFsloners'Committee, appeared later.
TUd wtyor in taxing the chair said he presumed
that all were avfuro of the purposes
and intents (or which this committee had
been formed. At the first meeting be had
not been present, but lie understood that he
had been selected as chairman and such being
the case he would declare the meeting
ready for business.
At the first meeting of the committee a
subcommittee consisting of Messrs. Miller,
KimberJy and the City Solicitor was appointed
to go over the city charter and Its
various amendments and ascertain wherein
it contlicted with the present ordinances.
This commlttco now reported through
Solicitor Caldwell.
The first thing that the sub-committee had
discovered ami desired to call attention to,
was that in the charter of 1830 it was provided
that the representation in Council should bo
based on the number of free while residents.
As the colored brethern were voting it was
no more than fair that the number of Councilmen
should be based on the entire population
irrespective of color.
The next point touched and shown to the
committee was that by the same charter the
number of wards in the city was limited to
eight, and this the Solicitor stated, notwith- ,
standing various amendments, was still in
The present state of the laws requires the
ward lines and places of voting to be the
same as the magisterial districts, as laid out
hv ilia cnniltv i'hUItlliulnnnM aililnli In on la
well known, not the case In every ward. j
It is also the law that a reapportionment
shall be made once in every five years, but in
no case shall the number of couaellmeu 1
(Second lJranch members) be over thirty.
This has not been lived up to. (
Another incongruity was, that any man
could be elected to Council (Second Branch) .
even provided he was not a resident of the \
ward electing him. The First Branch was
always to consist of two members from each j
The charter provides that a journal must 1
be kept of Council proceedings, in which,
when demanded by one-fifth ?f the members, ]
the aye and nay vote shall be recorded. The
custom has been to take such a vote when '
demanded by two members.
It could not be found that there was any I
section authorizing the Mayor to administer i
oaths, but that he has been doing so in the I
case of special police, etc., is a fact. <
This composed the result of the sub-com- i
mittec's labor, which was an arduous one. <
The chair asked what should be done and it i
was finally determined to take up each point
separately and act upon it.
Dr. Logan made a motion, which was
adopted, recommending to Council for presentation
to the Legislature a bill striking
out the words "free white" wherever they ap- ]
peared in the charter.
After considerable questioning and discussion,
l)r. IiOgau moved that the acta of '53 in
relation to the ward lines and voting places
bo properly amended, and it was also resolved
to ask the Legislature in a bill, for the
extension of charter privileges in order to
allow of more wards.
On motion of Mr. Laugblin the section
providing for reapportionment every live
years was ordered amended so as to provide
that a reapportionment should take place before
January 1,1833, and once every ten years
thereafter. ~
Dr. Logan moved that every member of
Council should be a resident of the ward

it must be understood that all of the above
work will be embraced in bills, which will (
be presented to Council for approval and (
then go to the Legislature, t
At the last meetiug of the committee a bill <

The proceedings thus far had been very dry
for the Washington Hall Committee, but they
braced up in good style when I)r. Logau
stated that at the last meeting of the committee
the Washington Hall people had been in- j
vited to be present, and he would like to hear J
from them. Chairman Caldwell of that ]
committee now came forward, and stated j
that it was the desire of his committee to sub- j
stitutce for the present management of the i
Water Works and Streets, Alleys and Grades, \
a Board of threo Trustees on a general plan ,
like that of the Gas Works. lle?ould not ?
better express the opinion of those he ]
represented than by reading the preamble ]
adopted at the Washington Hall meet- *
ing, which lie proceeded to do. It recites j
the past history of the Water Works and )
Streets. Alleys and Grades and as the (
general non-partisan scheme upon which the
city gas works are run commends itself to
judgment and experience, now to separate <
the merely business detriment of the city
from politics, and to place them on a non- ]
partisan and effective basis for the f
nubile 8crvice. lin It ro?nlvnfl
our representatives procure the pass- l
ago of a bill providing for Trustees
or Boards of Control. ilr. Caldwell said
it was not the intention of the Committee to ?
ilictati'j when It a&ked that the preamble dnd
resolutions of the Washington Hall meoting
bo embodied.in a bill and presented to Coun- t
cil for its adoption. The Washington Hall i
representatives did not wish to take from the
dear people any of their privileges but to relieve
the Council, which receiving no salary,
aa it was, could not attend properly to the
little details. The people would still
elect the Councilmen, who would in turn
elect the Trustees,
Tho committee accused no one man or
committee, of neglJgenee, on the contrary <
they all had been (speaking of the Water
Works) instant in season and out of season.
But the system was one made when wo were 1
a village and now vitiated and the time had
arrived when wo were in need of somethinc ,
bettor. Mr. utuirmli m tiB?..
sensible one and we regret we cannot publish
it in full. He showed tbe difference in 1
the Gas Works at the time the city ran Uiem
without the trustees and tbe present Then
gas was $180, now $118, and with the mains
extended and the city furnished with over
$30,000 worth of gas, for which not a cent had
been received. Still the reductions in price
had taken place and the people had not comElaired.
True dishonest clerks had crept in,
ut were not dishonest people just as likely
to be elected by the people?
Mr. Laughlin moved that the resolutions
of tho committee of citizens be adopted.
Mr. Kimberly wanted to know wfiat was to
he understood bv tho resolution te adopt?
Wore the preamble and resolutions to be
adopted by ordinance, or was an extension of
charter privileges to he asked for? It being
stated that the resolution to adopt was intended
to embody the resolutions in a bill to
be presented for approbation to Council, and
from thorn to go to the Legislature, Mr. Kimberly
said that he would give notice that in
Council he should endeavor to try and
point out some defects in the system
proposed and now in vogue at tho
Gas Works. Ho waxed eloquent and
said, "I say now, that the men who are endeavoring
to force their resolutions on this
city, are to-night more responsible for the dilemma
we are in than any one else. The
old Council when It went out appreciated
the state of aflWriandrenefltadlv c

tome figures and that Counpil, when itoiv
lered a legislative committee, intended the ?

ion of tho government as the resolutions
vould bring about. li

'Cincinnati, January 16.?C. W. Allen, J
me of the laigest tobacco manufacturers In t
he city, Unlay announced his Intention ol
noving hit manufactory and his business J
0 Chicago. Following upon the >
1 eels ol the decision ot the Emery
Brothers to transfer their build- >
Dg operations to Chicago, the announcemgntol
to-d?y Iim caused considerable comment.
Mr. Alien gives as one of his rea- Ij
una for wanting to go to Chicago the un- i
[air appraisements which havo been made
ot his property and business by the decen- )
nial Board of Equalisation. This is also ]
given by the Emery Brothers as their prln- i
cipal reason for stopping operations here. '
The Board of Equalisation and the As- ]
seeaois who went before them have made
many singular appraisements of property.
The character of their work has been re- 1
viewed by the newspapere, and diagrams
of the different squares published, which
have shown at a glance that there am singular
inequalities in the appraisement of
properties thai ore adjacent and equally
valuable. Thcso publications have
caused a good deal of talk among real
eatateowners, and In some instances It Is
now admitted that oilers of members ot the ;
board to be influenced by a consideration

erty owners who havo secured low valuations
In this way speak approvingly of a
board before which they founil It necessary
to resort to such measures. Tho Emerys
refused to "greaao" tho board, and tho con- ]
sequence, uiey say, is tholr 300 or more
pieces of real estate have been
Slaced high enough upon tho tax
uplicato to make good tho reductions
which have been maue on the property of
others. C. W. Allen states that this same
board have found reasons for adding $30,000
and 135,000 a year to bis sworn returns,
and he is tired of it Ho haa been giving
employment to about 400 men and doing
a business with one bank alone of $4,000,000
a year. His revenue tax amounted
last year to $560,000. He claims that lie
has been badly treated in other ways in
Cincinnati, hut his principal grievance Is
against the Board ot Equalization.
