A TimiUNE roportor had a conversation with
the Hon. SI. F. Tuloy yesterday rolativo to the
action of tho Common Connell on tho petition of
15,000 legal voters of this city for tho submission
of tho General Municipal law to tho people,
Tho roportor asked Mr. Tuloy what ho proposed
to do, as counsel of tho Citizens* Association, If
the Council persisted in placing technical obsta
cles in tho way of tho petition.
Mr. Tuioy—Everybody can understand why
tho mombors of tlio Common Council and all
city officials, from tlio Mayor down, aro opposed
to submitting the question to tlio people. They
are afraid of being beaten at the polls by tho
citizens who desire to try tho now law. In that
case every city ofllclal would hovo to go out nine
months ahead of tho usual time, aud try the
chances of a new election. This, of courso, they
do not wish, and have all their employes to book
them. I, however, incline to tho opinion that
this is
Tho Council must see very soon that it is not
only absurd but suicidal on their part to oppose
tho will of tho citizens. Of course they have a
perfect right, under the rules, to refer tho pe
tition to a committee ; hut, I believe, thoro has
hoou a standing rule recently adopted hr tho
Common Council that reports of committees must
not bo delayed longer than ono month from the
time of reference. Then they can, if they choose,
vote to lay over and publish, aftor which they
must act.
Beportor—They cannot volo down tho petition
of 15,000 citizens P
Mr. Tuloy—No. Tboy must grant tho prayer
of tho petitioners,—that they dnro not refuse;
hut I havo no doubt thoy will do all they can to
prevent tho matter from coming to issue. Aftor
all, thoy might as well consent first as last, for
to that conrse in any event.
Beportor—How do you propose to compel
them ?
Mr. Tuloy—l shall, should tho Council prove
obstinate, advise tho Citizens' Association to
apply to the Supremo Court, which will moot
next January, fora mandamus. That will ond
tho controversy.
, Boportoi—What ground can tho Common
Council lake, outsido of thoir present rules, to
delay action ?
Mr. Tuloy—l understand that they protend to
question the validity of tho 15,000 petitioners’
claims to tho title of legal voters. This. 1 sup-*
pose, they can do; but the Citizens’ Association
can, if they wish,
Boportor—ln what manner?
Mr. Tuloy—l should adviso them to appoint a
special Judiciary Committee, and have tho peti
tion and signatures referred to thorn. They can
compare tho signatures with tho poll-lists, and
thus decide tho question as to tho legal right of
tho petitioners. It will be a laborious process
enough, but still it ought to bo tried.
Boportor—The new law would hare tho Alder
men elected by districts Instead of by wards ?
Mr. Tuloy—Yes. Tho Common Connell would
ho obliged to divide tho city into not loss than two
nor more than six districts, each district to bo
represented by six Aldermen. This would giro
us broader men, and break up tho system of pot
house politics which now prevails in Aldormanic
elections. Two districts would give us twelve;
three, eighteen; four, twenty-four; flvo, thirty ;
and six, thirty-six Aldermen, which would bo tho
limit under tho now law.
Boportor—This law of General Incorporation
prevails iu other States, does it not ?
Mr. Tuloy—Yes, in ovory State whore there is
a constitutional provision against special legisla
tion for cities. It prevails in our State, —Hyde
Park baa adopted ft,—iu lowa, in Ohio, and’ln
diaoa. Without it, wo could novor amoud tho
old city charter, aud would bo compelled to mu
in tho old rut nutil tho day of judgment. I have
so doubt that if tho question is put to tho people
it will bo adopted. Thoy will reason that things
cannot bo worso than thoy arc, and thoy may
easily bo improved. Tho adoption of tho now
law would do away with the curse and fraud of
o many Boards. Wo should then have ono man
at tho hoad of each department, and
could hold him responsible for his acts.
What is ovorybodv’s business, as tho old
saying goes, is nobody’s. The Board of Public
Works would bo run by ono man, and tbo differ
ent departments, now classed iu ouocentral affair,
would each bo run aud regulated by a responsible
head. It would bo tho samo with tho Police and
IFire Deportments. In fact, tho change would
ho in every way beneficial to tho public. I havo
bo doubt that iho people will adopt tbo now law.

prove ouo of tho heaviest votes over polled in
A nearly successful effort was mode at Mon
day’s meot.ng of the Common Couucil to pass
Vn order for tho purchase of tlio triangular piece
ground adjacent to Union Park, to bo merged
in the park grounds. It is a matter of surprise
that certain Aldermen showed considerable anx
iety to put through this measure, but, os was
hinted by an opponent of the scheme, it is not
only an addition, but oven a division—and—
silence project which is contemplated—a kind
of project familiar to students of procedures a
la Tweed & Co.
Tho piece of ground has an area of about one
acre and a half, and for this tho city is asked to

about $120,000!
appears to bo this: Samuel J. Walker, tho real
estate mao, is the principal owner of the prop
erty. He owes the Second National Bank, which
wont into liquidation Inst fall, about $130,000,
and tho bank is indebted to David A. Gage,
the defaulting City Treasurer, in the same
amount. Now, should tho city purchase this
laud, Mr. Walker will bo enabled to pay off his
debt to tho bank, and tho bank liquidate its
debt to Gage, which would bo secured to the
city. Thus the movement is altogether in the
interest of Gage, whose case it is sought to in
The passage of tho order to purchase was de
feated through
tdo requisite number being twenty-one. And,
etiaugo to say, these two votes wore not onlyitn
dorstood Co bo pledged, but their owners lobbied
in behalf tho measure. Aid. Jonas,
to tho astonishment of bis friends, loft
tbo chamber twenty minutes before tho
question waa reached, and Aid. Richardson, after
strongly advocating its adoption, picked up his
hat and departed, to tho chagrin of tho support
ers of tbo measure. Thus tho requisite vote
was wanting. Aid. Cullorton, Hildreth, and
Woodman were also prominent advocates of tho
purchase. Mr, Woodman was formerly in close
business relations with Mr. Gage, and no doubt
was actuated in bis course by friendship for his
unfortunate friend. But, while this demonstra
tion of regard would cost Aid. Woodman nothing,
it would be rather dear to tbo City of Chicago,
which would bo mulcted thereby in tho sura or
It was romarkahio that ull the North Side Al

matters, and there may bo a closer connection
between this proposed park addition and the con

In almost every Instance whoro tho police of
/his city have encountered thiovos, tho latter
have gotten tho best of It. It would soom that
tho officers feared to club or shoot tho despera
does when opportunity offered, but it Is assorted
that the patrolmen have a mortal dread of tho
Hoard, and fear to act summarily hecauso of tho
Jrorpiont arraignments on trivial charges.
Tho latest occurrence shows how a thief got
the best of an officer by trickery, and a bold at
tack on him. Patrolman Korn Foloy, of tho
Armory, was traveling his boat on Wabash ave
nue, about 5 o'clock yesterday morning, and,
when near Twelfth street, observed a
aogro with a basket of clothing under
Ids arm. Suspecting that ho had stolon
the goods, Foley halted him, and inquired
as to where bo obtuluod them. The negro in
formed him that he was taking them to Mar
shall's laundry, on tho corner of the avenue and
Thirteenth street. Foloy decided to accompany
him to tho placo, to seo if his statement was
truthful. They had proceeded bub a few stops,
when the negro adroitly dropped n garment from
iho paobrt. .‘.icy, utoopod to
piok it m and as ho did no the negro dealt him
a hoary blow on tho head with a slungshot. ilo
attempted to rise, and tho ruffian struck him

extending from the right oyo obliquely to tho
noao. He fore tho patrolman could re

ono shot at him, but without effect, and

To tfo Editor of The Chicago Tribune:
Sin : I havo road, with some astonishment and
moro amusement, the reports of tho statements
of tho Police Magistrates with respect to tho re
cent burglaries, of which they soom to bo so im
perfectly informed. Lot mo enlighten them and
tho public from my own purely incidental knowl
edge. In tho West Division, not far from my
residence, is a long brick block of residences,
nearly or quite every one of which boa boon en
tered, not by snoak-thioves, but by burglars,
within a few mouths. This shows system,
perseverance, and impunity. A little over two
weeks ago tho house of a neighbor was
entered through tho front basement window,
under the clear light of tho street-gas. tho
pane having been broken, aud tho catch thrown
back, and a dean swoop mado of tho silver. Duo
information was given to the police. Tho same
night, tho house of another neighbor was broken
into, throogh tho basement, and that door thor
oughly ransacked, a bolted door shutting oil tho
upper stories. About tho same time, tho burg
lars came to Ibo rear of my residence, ono night,
hut their presence was discovered by »lady, who
called aloud to-her husband, when they lied to
tho alloy in tho roar. Wo woro naturally on tho
watch, after that, just as tho polico should have
boon, when they had learned of tlio
neighborhood that was being repeatedly
visited. A secret watch should Lave boon
sot by the Polico Deportment in that lo
cality, in anticipation of further attempts, so
that tho rogues might havo boon seized in the
very act. An honest, earnest, aud raodoratoly
sagacioua Polico Superintendent would naturally
think of this method. Would it havo hoou suc
cessful ? Lot facts answer. Quo week after
tho burglary on my two neighbors, of which tho
polico had knowledge, my wifo awoko from tho
light slumber which danger occasions, about half
post 2 o'clock m the morning, and, looking
through a window, saw a burglar at tho roar of
our house, and called mo softly. Together wo
watched him try our back door in vain, when,
discouraged or suspicious, ho wont away. Ho
was not aware that ho was quietly observed,
and that near at band was a double-barreled
gnu, In case bo had mado serious attempts to
outer. Had tho polico been secretly lying in
wait (which could havo boon easily arranged),
they would have arrested him beyond doubt.
But that samo night tho burglars broke into the
houses of throe otbor neighbors, large, costly
mansions. And when I mentioned this a day or
two later to two mechanics, who lived a few
blocks distant, and who woro working for mo, it
appeared that tholmmblo house of one had boon
entered and robbed, and that of tho other had
boon attempted. But our polico aro nob aware,
it sooms, that anything of this kind is going on I

If tho superior officers of the police farco
would moro closely watoh tho movement of
patrolmen while on duty, thoy would, iu a great
measure, bo ablo to account for the numerous
burglaries and thefts which have taken placo
during tho past few weeks. Woro tho Incidents
that occurred on South Halstod street, shortly
aflor 2 o’clock yesterday morning, told In a plain
unvarnished tale, tho story would road somewhat
liko tho following: At tho corner of Halstod
aud Monroe streets, policeman, loaning against
a tree, apnaiontly napping; near tho
corner of Halstod and Adams streets, policeman
sitting in tho doorway of a butcher-shop, mak
ing a noise that sonndod wonderfully like snor
ing, while another poheemau was guarding him
from being soon by passers-by, which ho did by
standing in front of him. oar the corner of
Harrison street, two moro policemen sitting side
by side on the stops of tho Halstod Street Opera-
House, apparently moro asleep than awake. On
Blue Island avenue, near Ewing street, police
man walking leisurely along chatting with a mer
chant-policeman. On tho comor of Morgan and
Taylor streets, two moro policomon sitting sido by
side on an oyster-case iu front of a grocery-store.
All this loafing and lounging when thoy ought to
bo walking their beats, aud preventing burglars
from having things all their own way. This, too,
at an hour when tho men of the jack and skel
eton-keys are most busily engaged. It is idle to
suppose that those officers wore tired out, as
thoy had started from the station only an hour
before. Small as the police force Is, if thoy are
allowed thus to waste their time, what remedy
can there bo for tho nightly raids of desperadoes ?
In answer to Tub Triijune's request, reports
continue to be received from citizens regarding
the committing of burglaries. The building No.
119 Fifth avenue was recently entered twice by
thieves. The room occupied by a hard-working
silver-plater was broken into and robbed of all
that was worth taking. Other rooms wore com
pletely ransacked on another occasion. The po
lice wore notified, but did nothing in the matter.
The residence of Mr. H. M. Hiscock, No. 5C4
West Washington street, wna entered by burglars
on tho afternoon of the 29th of October, and
taken worth about $l5O, mostly clothing.
There was no report made of it in tho papots,
but it was reported at tho station within twentv
minutes after tho scamp loft tho house.
Henry Hamish was arrested yesterday after
noon on tho charge of robbery, in knocking a
man down ami taking from him a small sum of

A meeting of delegates from the several tem
perance organizations of tho city was hold yes
terday oftornoon at tho Pal&or House. Tho
Bov. Dr. Bydor was called to tho chair, aud Mr.
A. Paxton acted as Secretary.
Tho object of tho mooting as announced by
the Choir was to consult as to the best moans to
advance the cause of temperance in the city.
Tho Chair did not look upon tho prohibition idea
as feasible, and so expressed himself, more to
draw out a discussion than for anything else.
Mr. Brayman, speaking from thirty years’ ex
perience, bogged to differ from tho Chair. Ho
believed in prohibition, and thought this tho
only true course for temperance work.
Mr. Paxton said the necessity of a strong,
vigorous, central organization was felt in tho
city. lie thought tho devil had boat his ad
versaries in the battle. While tho former had
any nnmbor of saloons, the latter bad failed to
establish temperance resorts.
Judge Waite thought the women’s organiza
tion was insufficient, practically. They had is
sued a public address which, ho thought, had
lowered the standard of temperance. He was in
favor of prohibition as a principle, and thought
it waa gaining ground every day, oven in tho
decisions of the courts.
Other speakers followed, after which, on mo
tion, tho following Committee was appointed to
arrange some definite plan of action for tho tem
perance workers : Tho Rev. L. T. Chamberlain,
Mrs. Wilson. Mrs. Corse, tho Rev. Dr.
Ryder, J. O. Brayman, 8. A. Keene, E. A. Starrs,
Mr. Moulding, Miss F, £. Willard, Mrs. O. N.
Holden, Mrs. O. G. Havman, Mrs. J. W. Loomis,
Mrs. Faulkner, tho Rov. Arthur Mitchell, the
Rev. W. W. Everts, Jr., and John Duncan.
Mra. Jones reported upon tho saloon ease on
Blue Island avenue, whore the parties wore ready
to quit saloon-keeping oa soon as they could be
helped to other business.
lier report elicited some discussion, but the
opinion was general that most saloon-keepers
would give up their present business tho moment
thoy could bo helped to something more profita
ble. The case was finally referred to tho Gen
eral Temperance Committee.
Tho mooting then adjourned, subject to the
call of tho Secretary.

formed by tho Junction of tho Schuylkill and Dels

Tho foreign commerce of Philadelphia, which has
received fresh Impetus by the successful establishment
of hor two trans-athmtlo steamship linos (tho "Ameri
can," sailing weekly to and from Liverpool, and the
"Rod Star," to and from Antwerp direct), has In
creased to such proportions that the elevator and docks
ot Washington and Christian street wharves wore
found entirely inadequate for the business of the
steamship companies alone, exclusive of sailing
vessel business; hence the International Navi
gation Company, foreseeing that Philadelphia
. t0 . nnk «nong the foremost
cities of the Union In exporting the grain and other
products of the West, acquired the property at Girard
Point, where they have erected extensive docks, ware
bouses side tracks, and other facilities for handling
and soring large quantities of grain and other mer
chandise, both exports and imports. The elevator la
Bllimlcd on the main wharf, which Is 500 feet long by
330 wide, with a depth of water all round It at low*tide
exceeding 30 feet, so that the largest ocean-going Tea
sels can be loaded at all time*, and is under the super-
Intendency of Mr. Philip Kennedy, formerly Chief In

To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune,
Sib: Thoro have boon letters- recently in th*
Sunday papers, containing statement* to the
effect that the low wages paid to sowing-women
aro duo to the fact that so many married women
do their own millinery and dressmaking. Now,
I, Tor one, am a young married woman, with a
husband on a small salary, and I positively can
not afford to pay a workwoman to do my sowing,
however much I may desire to do so, either from
a philanthropic or a selfish point of view, lam
sure there are many similarly situated, who will
agree with mo that it is not a pleasant task to
undertake both the conception, and the en-
tire process of making and bringing out in
its completeness, a full-fledged modern cos
tume. I am euro I had rather put the
use of my brain to different purposes, and
would prefer to spend my days of stitching, and
consequent backache, in other employments loss
Irksome; but, as I have not the moans to do
otherwise, I put my shoulder to the wheel and
do the best lean; and if, by industry and abil
ity, my clothing will pass muster with that of a
professional workwoman, 1 think I ought to be
encouraged, instead of being made to feel that
I am taking broad out of. the mouth of some one
of my sisters, whoso life depends on such labor.
Every woman should bo solf-holpful, whether
she has a husband or notj and, in many cases,
the necessity of doing for borself has not only
developed, but created, capabilities before
wholly unsuspected, and widen, without some
spur, would never have boon brought to light.
As for mo, I hope those who are interested will
do all they can for the benefit of the working
women. and will Increase the rate of pay to their
own satisfaction. l.
