SOUTH TOWH EEPTJBLICAU CONVEN- TION. A Republican Convention was held in the Council Chamber yesterday afternoon, to nominate town officers for South Chicago. There was a large attend ance of spectators,—the same gentlemen who have attended Republican Conventions for many a year. The proceedings were orderly. GETTING STARTED. Aid. SldweU called the meeting to order, explained its object, and asked who they would have to preside over their deliberations. Ira W. Buell was unanimously elected, and Aid. Richardson was made Secretary. Mr. Bruyton moved for a Committee on Credentials, which was appointed, as follows: First Ward, Harry Hammer; Second, Thomas Carson ; Third, David Coey; Fourth, A. J. Galloway; Fifth, IL B. Drayton ; Sixth, Constantine Haun. The Committee retired and reported the list of delegates already published. Chairmen of delegations were authorized to cast the vote of the wards, and it was decided to vote viva voce. COLLECTOR. Mr. Brayton nominated D. C, Leech for Collector. There being no other candidate, the nomination wat made unanimous. ASSESSOR. Ur. Sana nominated Julius Itodbertns for Assessor. Murry Nelson nominated W. H. B. Gray.

Mr. Nelson wanted to know if McMahon would pledge himself. Mr. Lyon did not see what good a personal pledge would do. It was an aflront to ask a man to give such a pledge. Leybrandtwaa withdrawn. Harry Hammer said McMahon had fought and bled for his country, having been four years m the army, and he would not take more than the legal fees. The vote stood: McMahon, CO; Bussell, 19. Mediation was nominated. The Convention adjourned. THE WEST gIBEItS IET COtTNOIL. A meeting of Weal Side patriots was held lost even ing in the saloon comer of Bias Island arenne and Gurley street. It was slow In gathering, and slower in getting to work when it did gather. The affair might be called a political “ blind-boil ” on the part of the West Side. There was considerable difficulty in find ing a Chairman. A SAGACIOUS PERSON, Bitting on a barrel, suggested Frank Lawler. Francis, with startling modesty, declined. Another benefactor of Ms kind suggested “ Maj, Hayes.” That hero de clared that he belonged to the Sixth Ward, and was getting out tickets for the Clerkship. [Cheers.] A philanthropist, with very dirty hands and a beard like a venerable bear, suggested Mike Ahem. That gentle man turned pale with agitation, and bid himself in the shadow of the stove. At this juncture, somebody shouted “JOE KELLY.” Joseph came np with great confidence, and, remov ing a hat thst*would do credit to the traditional Brother Jonathan, rapped an ancient table, and in a stern voice shouted “ Order.” His appeal had »mal! effect, eo he mounted a chair, and spoke as follows : WIIT 7 Gentlemen: Why are wc hero? Does any one know ? I don't myself. Who called this meeting ? What is it Who d’ye want as Secretary pro tim ? “ Billy Frazer," shouted a dozen voices, and “ Billy," supporting his pet leg with a crooked stick, waddled to a chair and looked important. Then ensued a dead silpere. When this had lasted for a considerable time the Cholrman rose, rapped the table, and shouted “Order.” DO SAY SOMETHING. “I rise,” said be, “to beg that ye’ll all say some thing on what is to be said, 1/ there is anything to tav. If there ain’t let us adjourn, [Clarks of dissent.] If any gentleman wants a drink, ho can have it when the Chair is through talking.” This announcement would have been eminently satisfactory had the Chair aforesaid agreed to bear the expenses or given ony sign of “ drying up,” which he didn’t. “Order, gentlemen,” shouted Mr. Kelly, for the third time, by way of exordium to another speech. “Is there any umn hero as has nothing to say 7’’ FRANCIS, THE CARBir.lt. Everybody protected that Frank Lawler answered that description. Frank, accordingly, conquered his native bashinl ncss, eyed for a moment some active flies upon the ceiling, and then, fixing his orbe on the atupldest-look ing meral)er of society in the room, said; “I think town organization for Chicago is a hum bug. [Groans and cheers,] Tis a fraud, gentlemen— a swindle. [Great discord.} Now, I don't know noth ing about this meeting, unless U is to dissent from the Twelfth street nominations. I have ” “ LAKST O’DRIE*," shouted the crowd in chorus, as that well-known pro duction of Erin’s fruitful sod came into the saloon, closely accompanied by Mr. Wall, who is rowing in the game political scow. Mr. Lawler’s eloquence flagged under the following announcement by the bar-tender : •* Gentlemen, Mr. O’Brien wishes to treat the bouse.” u Hurroo for O'Brien I" “ Civil doubt him, any way ! n “ ’Tin himself was always free wid his money, and kind people for aim,” “Be me sowl,” cried one excited Celt, “ Larry, yer eowl, yc’vo the owld drop in ye.

Don’t ye remember the owld, ancient motto of yer family In the times that’s gene 7 i’e don’t, eh 7 Well, here it is : • Lamh Sadir gon oughtcr n “What the divil ia that 7” said Larry, rather amazed. “ Greek, owld Greek, the same as what’s-bis-name taught the Greeks.

THE NEW TICKET. Mr. Frazer—l make it aa a motion that we appoint a new ticket right off. [Cheery.] Thia v» carried, and five citizens, whoes name* are lost to fame, were assigned the imposing duty of get ting up “ the slate.” Their labors, after two weary hour*, resulted thus : Collector, P. T. Hickey ; Assessor. Pat Rafferty ; Su pervisor, James Kinkade; Clerk, Michael McMahon ; Constable, Michael O’Brien. A motion to lay on the table was defeated, and. after considerable discord, the “ ticket ” was indorsed. The saviors of their country then took an additional drink and adjourned. THE WOEKINGMEITS APPEAL. The workingmen of North Chicago have issued a circular, from which tho following interesting extracts are made: “ The town elections are approaching, and many will yet hesitate as to the course they should adopt in this coming contest. As unanimous m the verdict ha* been last fall, aa undecided are the voters now in the choice they have to make. We may Just aa well con fess at once, that those who have staked their hopes upon the achievement* of the new * People’s Party* NUMBER 5225. hare been sadly disappointed. The men that hare elected lo office have not fulfilled the people's expectation-, and some nave become traitor* to the Pnuaples and platform of the so-called ‘People 1 * Corruption still reigns triumphant, the Ix4B becn graced by scenes that suoula not be tolerated in a civilized community, and *. taken place of an honest, fair, and Just City Government. !

Many of na have felt the irop grasp of the tyrant in the old country, we now suffer ourselves to be enthralled by a petty usurper of the people’s opinion and free choice, named A. C. Heslng, in a country that bosses to possess the broadest constitution of political freedom or any coun try on the face of the oarth ? 44 The workingmen of Chicago are not willing to bo made the tools of a horde of political advent urera, bummers, and old dilapidated wire-pullers, who have no heart for the laborer’s interests, in fact, for any body’s interest but their own. To fill their pockets is their chief and solo object. In order to break thia cor rupt ring; of professional politicians, the 4 Workiug tnen’ii Party * has been organized. Our first principle shall be to select men for office who have never court ed an office, who are honorable, respectable citizens, men who have been selected from our very midst; men, who feel for us, whose beaus beat for us, and who understand our wants and our suf ferings. It is useless to describe in detail all the wrongs the workingmen have to en counter in consequence of unjust laws, framed by the great monopolist through bis hirelings, the political bummers and professional politicians, Everr workingman has more or less felt the Injustice of the eicstlug laws. It is time to wake up, and take our dunUniea into our own hands, and not intrust them to scheming demagogue* and toUUcal wire-pullers. The workingmen and the tradesmen must stand together la this contest, for every dollar the laborer is deprived of the tradesman loses. The gigantic polypus monop oly is extending its funga over the tradesman, as well as over the workingman, to mako both subservient to Its power; to mold their mind in accordance with ua schemes is the grand object in view. It will always find a servile press to support Us cause, for money weighs heavier in the scale than justice and equal rights. “ The Workingmen’s Partv have therefore concluded to place their own candidates before the neopie. They have been nominated and ratified in two open mass meetings, and the most orderly and largest mass meetinga that bare ever been held in Chicago. They are all men taken from the midst or the people, not one of them ever solicited an office, not one of them I* a political bummer, every one commands the respect of the community in which he resides, and each of them is entitled to the regard of every honest man. To use the celebrated phrase of Shakespeare in the tragedy of Hamlet. 4 Look ou this picture”: WORKINGMEN'S TICKET, For A&stssor —George F. Duflfey, a plumber, bom in Chicago.

To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune: 8m: It is well that Messrs. Dickey k Caulfield took the precaution to inform the public that their opinion, published in this morning’s Tribune, upon the question of the salary of Town Collector was not an ex-parte opinion, for, without such assurance, the opinion Itself would certainly create a false impres sion. Mr. Ouahan does not claim such merit for his opinion: yet his method of reasoning is the same as that of Messrs. Dickey k Caulfield. Both, in order to make the section of the law in question sustain their views, find it necessary to remodel and transpose the several clauses of the section. In fact, the learned gentlemen arrogate the prerogatives of the Legislature in order to make the language conform to their opinions, which they inferm us are not ex-partc. They admit by inference, if not directly, that the section as it was framed and passed by the Legislature does not sustain their opinion; and yet we are in formed that such an opinion was given on the merits, and was not au ex-parte opinion. The first part of the section provides that each Town or District Collector shall be allowed a commission of 2 per cent on all moneys collected by him, to be paid out of the respective funds collected. The second clausa provides that, in any case where the compensation eo allowed shall bo insufficient, tho Town or County Board may allow an additional compensation or per diem in lieu of other or greater commissions, in which case said additional compensation shall bo paid out of the town or county treasury, as the case may require. The third clause provides, further, that ail excess of commissions and fees over $1,500 shall be paid into the town or district treasury. It is plain, taking this statute as it reads, that the first proviso only applies when the 2 per cent allowed In the first clause of the section is not a sufficient com pensation. There is no power given to the Town or County Board to take any action whatever in relation to the compensation of the Town Collector where the commissions allowed in the first clause would be a sufficient compensation, and in that case the greatest compensation the Collector could retain under the second proviso would be $1,500. Therefore, the only case where the Collector could get over $1,500, allowing the opinion of Messrs. Dickey, Caulfield, and Onaban to be correct, would be where the amount collected was so small that the commissions would not amount to that sum, and where tho work performed by the Col lector is so great that the 2 per cent will amount to more than $1,560, that sum would bo the limit of com pensation. They have no power to give the Collector a salary instead of his commission.-, but simply where such compensation would be insufficient, instead of increas ing the rate per cent of commissions, they may allow au additional compensation. The sum to be paid out of the Treasury' is only to be a sum which, added to the 2 per cent commission on moneys collected by the Collector, will make in the aggregate what the Board considers a sufficient compensation, which the last dame provides shall not exceed $1,500. Under this new of the case, tho second proviso can only mean that $1,5C0 shall be the maximum amount which the Collector can receive and retain as compeu pensutlon for bis services. If it should happen after tho adililicmal compensation is fixed by the Board that tan commission on the amount collected would make, when added to such sum, more than f1,5C0, then the excess cf such commissions and fees shall be paid into the Treasury. If this ia not the correct Interpretation of the last clause, then what do the words ** commissions ” and “ foes ” mean 7 What other fees are mentioned In tho act? What reason would the Legislature hate to pro vide that the Collectors should pay to the Treasurer tho commissions in excess of $1,200, and then to receiva .back the same or a greater amount ? Under the inter pretation givt-n to the statute by the opinions men tioned, the $1,500 limitation would be without sense or effect. O. L. Parrish. MIS CELL AHEOT7S. TET ASOTHEB WEST (TEDS TICKET.

OARVEHT IS OCT. A pen-on by the name of George Oarvery, who has never been publicly mentioned as a candidate, writes to The Tribche, stating that “business!* so press ing ” that be cannot “ devote the time to the complete fulfilment of the important duties devolving up tho Supervisor,” and hence retire* from the contest. THE FAITHLESS o’RRIET. Aid. Fitzgerald. Conrad Cripp, and other* have made up a South Bide ticket whereon Pat O’Brien, tho present Supervisor, is candidate for Collector, and John B.
