SOUTH TOWH EEPTJBLICAU CONVEN-
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.
Aid. SldweU called the meeting to order, explained

over their deliberations.

Richardson was made Secretary.

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

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.

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
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 :
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
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
“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
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
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. Arrah, whist cow.
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
“ Greek, owld Greek, the same as what’s-bis-name
taught the Greeks. They call it Irish, now, for fun.
It manes, bowiver, ‘ The sthrong hand uppermost.’
an’ that’s the way ’twill be with you against the other
oration produced great applause, amid whlcn
the Chairman looked utterly distraught.
“ ilr Wall wants to trite the crowd,” bawled the
bar-keeper, excitedly, and lUia brought another round
of cheering, while the aaioon commenced to fill up
n ’“ Ord-r," ahonted Mr. Kelly, once more. “What

THE LAW IN THE CASE.
Chicago, April 4,1874.
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
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.
