Mr. Irwin, in a clover speech, placed
Mr. Edward M. Ilollidayin nomination.
Mr. Kenney nominated ono of tho
present incumbents, Mr. II. II. Dunlevy.

nominations were made: J. A.
Jofferaon, Godfrey Schul and IS. 13ucklnan.
At this juncture Mr. Richards arose
and addrossed tho joint session.

I dosiro to mako a motion in connection
with this matter. No Uopublican
baa as yet been heard. It is not the intention
of tlio Democrats to give the
Republicans, as brought out in this
paper, a man of their own choice. Now
1 move thai tho olection of gas trustees
be taken up separately, one at a time.
Then followed the nomination of two
Republicans; Mr. Richards presented
tho name <>f K. Buckman, of tho Second
ward; Mr. Wheat named Godfrey Sehul,
of the Eighth ward. J. A. .Jotferaon,
&. Uopublican, was named by Mr. 1\ F.
FMr. Richards said tho agreement ho
held in liia hand was sufficient cause
ior voting (or ono member at a time.
Mr. Gruso said ho was a motnber of
council when the ppper in question was
drawn up. Tho situation, then, ho aaid,
was greatly ditloront from what it now
is. lie acknowledged tho authenticity
of tho paper read by Mr. Richards.
Tho Republicans, ho clnitnod, assisted
in breaking the agreement, and that tho
Democrats can not bo held to it.
Mr. Maxwell could not understand
the system of reasoning by which ho
reached his conclusion.
Mr. Gruso?Mr. Maxwell may talk na
ho pleases about honor and dishonor;
bo helped to bring about tho breaking
of tho agreement.
Mr. Richards thou followed with a
humorous speech in which ho roastod
tile Democrats for breaking pledges as
shown in tho agreement he had read.
Mr. Dobbins?On this question, in tho
fuco of tho situation, I am, I think, entitled
to a vote. Tho other side is
about to break a contract that relievos
mo of tho pair.
Mr. Brock followod with a longwinded
haraneue. lie finally nronosod
on behalf of tho Democratic members
of council that tho ltopublicaiiH select
one man and tho Democrats would support
Mr. Maxwell?I raise a point of ordor;
tho quostion is to select one member of
tho gas board at a time.
Mr. Brock?1 will get to tho question;
T hopo after my explanation that tho
motion will be withdrawn; then the
Democrats will vote for any man that
tho Republicans want
At this point Mr. Wheat approached
Mr. Brock and asked him as to tho
validity ot the paper, which was signed
by him a9 chairman of the Democratic
caucus. The gentleman did not deijv
its authonticitv.
A votowas then taken on tho motion.
Ayes and noes were catted, and it resulted
in a victory for the Republicans.
Sir. Dobbins vot"'d and hi3 vote was
' objoctod to by Mr. Irwin.
Mr. Kilan?It is not ho very Ions ago
when Mr. Brock was paired, "and voted
nevertheless to postpone the election of
tho water board for two years, which
was equivalent to an election. [Republican
Tho vote was as follows: First
branch, ayes 7. noes S; .Second branch,
ayes 15, now* 13; total, 22 ayes, 21 noes.
Tho gentlemen who had been previously
named for gas trustees wore
again nominated. A ballot was taken
and resulted in a tie, Mr. Dobbins not
voting: Jetferson, 21; Buckman, 21.
Mr. Richards arose and asked for information.
In hii opinion, the mayor
should in this cose cast the dociding
Mr. Gruso took an opposito view of
tho case, lie claimed that as tho mayor
is not a member of council ho cau not
cast a vote.
Mr. Richards?I claim tho mayor has
tho right to decide.
Thero was considerable further discussion
betwoon Messrs. Gruso and
Richards, that linally grow eomowhat
Tho Mayor?If l eaw a precedont 1
would not object to cast tho deciding
vote. 1 have looked carofully into the
matter and can boo no procedont.
[Democratic applause.]
Mr. Killeon?I move that a ballot bo
taken on election of gas trustees.
Tho motion prevailed, a veto was
taken and resulted in another tie?21
to 21.
After tho ballot a long recess was
taken, during which there was lots of
lobbying, but without ro-mlt.
After a while tho roll was callod,
after which Mr. heat moved that tho
election of gas trustees bo temporarily
Iiostponed and that tho eloetion of tnur:ot
master bo taken up. Tho mayor
scorned to think the motion a proper
Mr. Grme?Your former ruling does
not agree with your present positiou.
Tho Mayor?The public good seems to
domand under the circumstances that
the electiou of market master be tukeu
up now.
Mr. Richards oflered a substitute to
tho motion to tho eil'ecfc that tho election
of gas trustees bo <leierrotl until ,
two ballots bo taken on election of market
master. -Tho vote on the motion
waa the samo old tie. 21?21.
Mr. JJobbinu?I think undor tho circumstances
you have a perfect right to J
a vote here.
Mr. Wheat spoke on tho subject and
gave authorities to show that the mavor 1

coating tho deciding vote. <
Tho Mayor?I cannot agree to decide
tho ballot. i
Another ballot was taken on gas trus* i
toes and resulted in no choice; Uilligun <
1, Buckman 20, Jotrorson 21. ]
Another long recess was taken and at
11:15 the roll was called. There were a
number of paired absentees. ,
At 11:20 Mr. Grase asked that the ?
Democratic members be allowed to retire
to the committco mom, and thoy
were allowed. They retired at 11:21, .
and roturned at 11:20, each man wiping
his mouth and smoking a fresh cigar. 1
At 11:30 tiio roll was called. Mr.' 1
Faull was tho only absentee. Then a 1
ballot?21 to 21.
On the next ballot Filan votod for *
Buckman, tho other Democrats for ilol- 1
liday, and two or three liopublicans 1
scattered, but ail united on Mr. fclehul 1
before the result was announced. 1
On tho next three votes wero given
Ciilligan, anil Milligan had to pronounce ^
his namo twice, as it was thought he t
was voting for himself. ]
Tho next time Mr. Jlorstmann voted 1
for Dave ttrooks. Mr. Uurke voted for t
M. K. Wolff. Mr. Filan voted for IXolli- c
At midnight signs of fatigue and
sleepiness began to apnoar. "Markets" f
Kreltor was the first to yield himself to
tho arms of Morpheus. With his feot
on tho desk in front he remained utterly
oblivious of his surroundings until 1 r
o'clock, when another ballot was taken.
The lobby, that earlier in the evening 1
was very numerous, at midnight
dwindled down to a score or two, whose I
curiosity had still not been satisfied.
Council manic foraging parties com
posed invariably ol oquai numDers ironi ^
each side of tho chamber at intervals
made raids on noighborintr saloons and
restaurants, with unvarying success. c
Things fast assumed a very informal *
aspect. Ootincilmon of usual dignified
mien, laughed, chatted and exchanged t
stale joke*. Groups formed and talked c
over the respective merits of tho two 1
parties, and occasionally the members
got pretty hot. . \
At 1:07 o'clock this morning the roll \
was again called. Dobbins and Fanll [
wero tho first branch absenteos, and
Knoko and O'Mallov of the second. ,
Tho ballot resulted as follows: Buck- f
man, Hi; Molliday, 1!?; Dunlovy, 2; Cfilligan,
1; Zarnitz, 2.
Aitor the ballot Mr. Kennoy spoke in .
favor of adjournment and moved for adjournment
Mr. Maxwell said tho proposition to 11
adjourn came with poor urace from tho 1
Democratic side when it was remember- v
ed that earlier in tho evening tho Dotnocrats
had boon co firm for doinjj no- }
thing, but elect gaa truatoes. A motion u
was mado to table the motion for adjournment.
The vote was protty closo
on tiie motion to table, and Mr. Milligan
in a stage whiapov that could be ^
heard all over the room said, "the ino- t
lion is carried." The mayor repeated, J
"the motion is carried," I
An effort was made to havo Zulauf
sing, but the Eighth ward statesman 11
refused emphatically to repeat his per- 1
formanco of last winter, when ho sang H
"Our Jack's Como Home To-day." s
At 1:50 o'clock,' to "relievo the pros- i
sure on tho pas board," Mr. Wheat f
turned down tho gas in tho second 'j.
branch chamber. \
More efforts wero mado to have '
Charley Zulauf sing, but without avail. fl
At exactly 1:5(5 a. m. Dr. Caddie, who 1
was snoozing in his chair, fell over on 8
tho floor, tho chair on top of him. t
"I)oc" raised himself on his elbow, gazed t
around in a stupefied way, and when J
the gang let loose a yell, realizod whore
ho was and got up.
Ed Wheat was tho lifo of tho gathering.
lie was nover still, but always p
hunting up somo new scliemo to tor- ji
mont his fellow "statesmen." Ji
Ilia Honor, the mayor, at tho sugI'nutinn
fllnrlr Thonnr. ivunt to nun r.f
tho commit too rooms for refreshment.
To the surprise of tho mayor ho ran t
into a Democratic caucus. Needless to ^
state, ho didn't stay. v
At 2 o'clock tho roll had not been
called again. Most of the Democrats
were in ono of tho committoo rooms, ?
caucussing. f
At 2:30 o'clock tho situation was unchanged,
cxcept that five members on J
each side had paired, and irotio home.
About this tirno a schomo of tho Demo- F
crnts was discovered by their opponents. 1
Tho well-known Democratic desire was I
that tho quorum of the joint session ho .
broken so that matters could drift
along for awhile/ Tho idea was to have j.
Democratic mombors pair with Ropub- J;
licans until tho quorum could bo
broken. Tho scheme narrowly escaped
being successful. Tho Republicans
got onto tho schomo before
it was too late, however, and ,
refused to pair. Much credit is duo tho t
watchfulness of the Republican loaders j
who throughout the session handled j
their side with skill and foresight. c
At 2:45 o'clock thero was nothing now v
in tho situation. :
