tsraiwrary nature. Furthermore, hois confident that
tbo case will be fully decided in plenty of time for

Chicago, Sej«U UO.—Tue Tbiduvs of Wednesday
coots las several articles which should commend them
to the careful consideration of every tax-payer of the
cilj, Whilst the taxes,‘in the various Htstcs and
tide*,have already reached a sum which has become
oppressive to every owner of realty, every business
man, and every taxpayer of the country, U la shown
that nowhere are taxes lessoning, bat everywhere they
arc Increasing. This Increase of taxes la chiefly by
fraud, and by the influence of those who pay no (ax,
bat who gunitrength by combination snd harmonious
action. The enormous sum the debts already created
have reached you show to be -
State debts,
County debts....
Municipal debts.
. T0ta1.... $1,331,070,517
A sum so largo is to be almost beyond the giaap of
ordinary zniude, Unless there be some steady pro
vision made by a surplus revenue to pay off the debts,
unless there bo a certain provision made to ureal ac
cumulation, the people will bo bankrupt and property
a burden. 4
h ?! e TBtDD*K,-and the report of
the Ih-osldeut of the Citizens* Association confirms It.—
that In Chicago at every point associations exist to do
fraud the people, and squander and stud their money,
la tho Court-llonse and County UuUillng there Is a
door opened for squandering hundreds of thousands
of dollars. In tho purchase of the abstract records is
another source of frauds; in tbs proposition about
taxing the city an exorbitant sum for Coroner's fees
Is another. There is not one thing which Is to be doao
for city, county. or Btste but that tt costs far moru

Kennedy as well no I do would not br unlit} of any
Midi statement, und It would bo doting the officials who
had charge of the cl.wtion on that day a gross injus

present that evening at the Ninth Ward poll*. With

Kennedy states that la point of fact them was no fraud

that the judges of olecllon In the Ninth Ward were

this is only 100 true. If, (onload of noting under these
instructions, they had ruled according to (heir oaths
and the law governing election*, the i«eoplo of the
Ninth Ward would have no fault to find, nor wotd‘
tho people of (he city be compelled to submit to a set

(he publle-apirltcd and enlightened policy The Trib
v.vk Is pursuing in advocating thn opening of the
Art-Oallcry Huuday afternoons. Will the Directors of
tbo Exposition, at their meeting to-morrow, display
the same spirit by acceding tuthe very general amt
strong desire (hero Is that the paintings should be
open to exhibition on (be afternoon of tho day when
the mass of tho laboring clx«sra can attend with com
fort. convenience, and profit? It la useless to say
that every one who wishes can now sen them. As n
fact, come cannot except at great )>orsonal
Inconvcnienco. To 'insist on such a
sacrifice la not the way to engender
it Undo for elevating and healthy pleasure, (n tho
alrlfo between tho degrading pleasured of the garish
saloon aim the educating Influences of art and litera
ture, la it desirable to giro thn former the advantage ?
The Dlrectora of the Sunday Lecture .Society, by
their liberal otfor to the Directors of tho Exposition,
have pul it in tho power of tho latter, at little trouble
and no expense, to do an act which will give healthy
pleasure to thousands, and which will commend Itself
to the admiration of all but blgotn and dullards. Un
fortunately, the opinion of these baa eften more
weight than the Just desires of the messes, who, free
from fashion’s tyranny, frequently instinctively make
for the right. If (be Directors will not asaiunn the
burden themselves, prayflurn U over to tho gontlrmen

and as a Christian mother 1 feel called on to epcak in
defense of the teachings of tho Dlblo and the salvation
of souls. Our Savior said, "Suffer tho littlo children
to como unto Mo and forbid .(been not." Yol these
men. who have been to tbo Sabbatlwchool In their
youth, while under the control of pious parents, pro
pose to open thrlr art gallery at Just tho time wheu
half the Habbath-achools are open. Is not this flying
in the face of the teachings Of our Lord ?
Dul it la said 44 Dcmutubcr tho .Sabbath day to keep
it holy," 44 The Lord blessed tho seventh day and
bellowed it," not to look at rain and unprofitable
pictures In, often painted by men of evil lives, but to
s|>cDd in prayer and devotion. Is this a time to
spend money In profaning Ood’n chosen day, when
hundreds ana thousands are crying out for tbo Dread
of Life T It costa only 26 cents to go in, they say. A
Dlbln costs only 25 cents. Would yon snatch tbo
precious Word from a dying sinner that a man may
feed bis eyes on some bite of pointed canvas 7

It is needless to sar be got roaring drunk.
Ito growled around for a wnlle, and
then fer amusement bo turned nil tho tables upside
down, filled bln pockets with tho wedding cake, and
then thrashed bis own mother for Interfering. Tho
guests essayed to eject him, and be pummeted throo
or four of mem until they thought that ralnco-mc»t
was tho actual end of all that la mortal, dogs and cats
included. A policeman trlod his baud la tho row,
and, with , the assistance of several outsiders, hand
cuffed tbs young Irishman, but no sooner bad be se
cured him than Pat dealt him a stunning blow with
bis handcuffed flats, and made him see more stars
than tbero are In tho firmament. Then bo kicked and
pounded tho officer's faco until he looked like an In
dian Chief on tho war-path.
About this time a detachment from the Twelfth
Street Station bovs in sight, and with a whoop* l Fight
ing Pat O'Brien" cleared the fence and waa off to
more remote quarters. And now big Hergt. O'Donnell
la going around town with a warrant In bis vent
pocket, and threatening to sit on tbo young man fur
three days whon ho catches him. And this is but ono
of the almost lolly shows given by Miller street.
AMUSEMENTS.
NEW CHICAGO THEATRE.
•'Tho Two Orphans" was played at this
charming little theatre last night In a manner
that was at once gratifying and surprising to
those in attendance. The play is hcarcoly
adapted for the stage of the Chicago Theatre or
for tho company which tho manager Las at bis
command. It is not the kind of drama,’ oilhor,
that ho intended and desired to give when tho
esaaon opened. It is, however, as tho event
allows, the kind of drama that the people want
to see. The audience last night was the largest
of the season, and a most welcome
earnest of hotter things to come. Tho well*
filled benches, joined to the fooling tbit groat
things wore expected of them, seemed to have a
stimulating .effect upon tho actors; and all
showed the results of conscientious study, if not
of power to please, in general, it may bo said
that tho conspicuous parts iu the piece wore well
rendered. Miss Helen Tracy gave an Intelligent and
forcible interpretation of ItenrutU. which naa not
been even approximated in thia city before. Uennetl*
1h not a simpering fool, or n lackadalsalcal school*
f;ir), Him la a woman bom, of strong will and roso
ute purpose, with courage equal to the emergency,
and ready wit to assist her courage. These qualities
aru vividly portrayed by Miss Tracy In oa fine a bit of
acting as it has boon the good fortune of the Chicago
public to boo this season. Miss Ada Gilman also do«
Justice to the part of Loxuu, the blind girl. Those
who understand the technical difficulties she had to
contend with will appreciate Mias Oilman's efforts. It
ia something, for instance, to avoid giving the Im
pression of aamenoaa to a drawn-out and attenuated
story of blludnesa/nd suffering. The same drawling
voice ami choking utterance that convey the idea once
will not convoy It one hundred times, or, if they do,
will exasperate an audiuuco long before the fiftieth
repetition. Miss Oilman meets and struggles with
Ibis difficulty bravely, and, if she does out quite eon*
quer it, she oomes ta near doing so as any actress who
Los essayed the part In (tils city. She is certain to be
a great favorite in Chicago if she remains hero long,
Another, good bit of soling la this play la done
by Mr. Louis James, who assumes the part
of tho Chtvalter de VUuJrey. Mr. James bos a
sonorous voice, a fine presence, and far more than
enough dramatic power to reuder.tha lines that fall to
bis share with vlaor and impressiveness. Ulsa Minnie
Blook gives an adequate conception of the JJarehumeu
ds Linnurt, Mrs. J. 11. Itogors is a La Frtxhard,
every inch; and she la a woman of inches. If she
baa copied at all she has made a good copy. There
are people who prefer copies to originals. Mark
Twain, a high authority In art, expressed himself
to this effect in Europe: and what Is
true iu one department of art may per*
haps be true in another. Another character excel
lently taken at the Now Chicago Theatre is Fuard,
who, ta the hands of Ur. Thomas Wblffin, becomes
quite a new and Important personage, in place of the
travesty that waa formerly presented to the public in
this part. Ur. Harry L«o does Vitrr* only a little less
well (ban it has been given in this city. Jatqut* is
given not nearly so well. Jfartamwi is tolerably done
by Miss Emms Pierce, and Agnes Proctor looks bosutl*
fully as AViutinr, which la all she is expected to do.
Uhe consented to take this inferior part in a spirit
of true artistic devotion, which wUI doubtless
have IU reward. Tho scene in (bo prison of La Hal.
peiriere occurred too late for present notice; but, with
Ibis reservation, it may be said that tho Inferior puis
were as conspicuously bad an the principal ones wire
conspicuously good. Ur, Htoddsrt should bo excvptod
from this sweeping condemnation only because he
•poke his lines clearly and intelligently. Me dressed
bta part In suctra way that he seemed to be a younger
man than bis reputed nephew. The piece is mounted
well, considering the limited facilities of the stage; but
the scenic effects are not grand. A pretty and acceptable
diversion is afforded by a procession of cbolr*boys and
acolytes, on tho way to church, with censers swinging,
and a bous-flde chant.

FINANCIAL COMPLICATIONS.
A meeting of iho Couucil of Otio Hundred of
tbo Jeffersonian Club waa held last evening in
tbo olob-roora of tbo atiorraan House, about
fort; parsons boiuc present, among whom was
A. C. Hosing. Gen. Lieb, Cbarloa Korn, Thomas
Hoyno, ,T. V. Lo Moyne, .T, R. Doolittle, Jr., John
Hisc, Miles Kohoo, Miku Javans, Francis A.
Hoffman, Jr., Jobn Garrick, Judge Fullerton,
W. J. Ouahan, A. D. Waldron, Judge Millar, and
Qon. F. T. Bbermau. The mooting was called to
order by President Hoyno.
After the minutes bad been tend, Boer clary
Hiso stated that a Finance Committee ought to
bo appointed to raise funds and audit bills.
Thera wero no bills being pressed, except
for rent and expenses prior to organization, but
thote wore nob lunds on hand to meet these.
Junpo Miller moved tbal a committoo of
Uuoo bo appointed to prepaid by-laws, m which
provision, of course, would bi) made for a Fi
nance Committee. It wr.s carried, and tbo chair up
{minted Messrs. Millrr, J. U. Doolittle, and C. 9. Cam
eron as such Committee.
Inquiry was thou mado whether the funds of tbo
Club would moot its liabilities.
The Uecrotary answered that they would not. All
members bad not yet paid their initiation fees.
Judge Miller bopod they would tor tbo sake of the
preservation of tbo good standing of the Club, and that
tbo bilia might be paid. He asked tbal tho names of
those who bad paid their initiation fecn bo read.
The Secretary was about to road the names asked
for, when Charley Kern stepped to his side, and,after a
whispered conference, Bscrutary Uiae told bo was in
formed by Treasurer Kern that members hadn’t vet
been asked to pay up, with which remark tbo reading
of names was dispensed with and tbo public was de
prived of means of knowing what Jeffs hadn’t paid
their dues.
ANTI-PRIMARIES.
Tbo flnancial question having been so disposed of,
Mr. Moran offered tbo tallowing:
Whereas, Tbo Jeffersonian Club of Cook County
wan organized for the purpose of carrying into effect
in political action certain principles of vital impor
tance to the well-being of the city, the State, and tho
nation, which was expressed In tho following terms
(hero follow Uio principles, previously printed); and
Whereas, Tbo Opposition Central Committee of
Cook County, an it U said, contemplate calling a con
vention to nominate candidates for city and county
officers to bo composed of delegates to be elected at
primary caucuses, which, as is well known, tho largo
mass of doctors aro unwilling (o attend, and whom
tbo delegates c_usen at such Caucasus fall to represent;
therefore,
Jtuolred, That tbo Jeffersonian Clnb does not favor
tho calling of the Convention to bo constituted by
primary caucus elections.
lUtolrtd, Aa a aubatitute for tbo caucus system, tho
Jeffersonian Club recommends tho election of the
delegates to the Convention by mune-mectlngs to be
hold in tbo various wards of tho city, and the towns
outsido of tho city, on tbo same day, and within tbo
city at tbo samo hour of tbo day,
lUtolced, That in cano tbo above recommendation is
adopted by tho Cantrul Committee, tho Jcffuraouhta
Club will unite in thu calling of the Convention, and
the entire organization, general and local, will co
operate in Ibo mass-meetings in tbo wards of tbo city
and towns of thu county.
In support of bis resolutions Mr. Moran said if Ids
plans were adopted they would no longer nee the spec
tacle, no common heretofore in tbo city, of a ’bus load
of bummers being carted from one ward to another to
vote at the primaries.
JUDGE MILLER
wanted to know If the Opposition Committoo had ad
dressed any communication to the Club on tho sub
ject of primaries. Ua being informed that no such
communication had been received, ho said it was be
neath the dignity of the Club to mako any recommen
dation which bad not been asked, and to a
body of the existence of which they had no notice.
Ho didn't know that there waa now any Opposition
party. There bad been, ho believed, two or three
years ago, and it had done nothing that bo knetr of to
promote tho cause of good government. It had elect
ed officials who were responsible to no constituency,
and had run matters pretty much as they pleased.
Mr, J. U. Doolittle, Jr., informed Judgu Miller (hat
tbo Opposition Central Committee tho evening |<rovl
ous bad tbo subject of primaries under consideration,
and postponed it fqr tho purpose of hearing from tho
Juffo on tho question,
Judge Miller continued, that it was beneath tba dig
nity of tho Clnb to take it for granted that there woo
such an organization as thu Opposition Central Com
mittee, and that it wanted tbo Clnb's advice, aU upon
an Irresponsible statement and without official Infor
mation. It waa also Inconsistent for tho Club which had
organized all tba machinery of a party to go ov.taldo to
build up another party-organization. If the Jeffer
aoniau Club wasn’t a parly, what was It? It had a
platform, and organization In every ward ana pre
cinct, and if members bail anything to profose about
tho primaries let them speak to the Club.
Uow could anything be done if they
were to Iw divided up into clubs and
cllquea to bo manipulated ? lie noticed that members
of the Club appeared to lie members of tho Central
Committee, and appeared to be members nlao of anoth
er clnb called the Cosmop*. If they wen'* on in this
way they couldn't run any campaign, or influence
public opinion. The Club had been formed lo furnish
the city, county, and nation with good government.
To that end It was necessary all opposition organiza
tions should be united. All knew (hero would be but
two parllre In 1870—the Democratic and tho Repub
lican. Tho platform of tbs Club vu that of tho
Democratic party, and to aid in Iho Democratic
movement in 1870 the Club abovdd be .organized
under the Democratic banner, Tom, If the election
was earned. It would bo a Democratic victory; if offi
cers were elected they would uot bu Irresponsible*, but
would be held to account by an organized comtlt
ucucy.
A. Hosing interrupted to ash if Republican nfit
dais had not stolen, and if they ucro not at tho time
responsible to a regular party orguilzalion.
Judge Miller said he referred to a Democratic party
organization,
Mr. lloilug again interrupted with: "Well, Dots
Tweed waa a regular Democrat, trad be stole.”
Judge Sillier retorted, "And waa punished by tho
Dumocratlo parly."
MU. I. R. DOOLITTLE, JR.,
said the Club, while holding to the genuine Democratic
principles, was not distinctively a Don locratlo organi
zation. The Opposition Central Cotrmlltcu was tho
stronger and more powerful. It represented (ha same
principles—opjostlion to thu National Administration.
The Club was an Opposition organization, aud there
could be no objection tolls co-oi-erutiou with the Op
position parly through tho Opposition Csniial Com
mittee.
As to Moran's resolutlonr. Mr. D. said tho primaries
aa conducted were the fontdadun of all thu <:■ eruption
of our politics. Duelled the legislative ticket nomi
nated last fall by delegatus of the Opposition party
chosen through tho priruarius,—nominees so disreput
able that a committee of citizens had to pul them off
the ticket. Do wanted no repetition of that,
MU. J. V. LE MUYNb
doubted the feasibility of electing delegate! aa pro
fiosed by mass convent ions. Thcae wore likely lo end
u rows, and be more disreputable than tho pres
ent caucuses. He muvud that a commlttou.uf Qve, of
which the I'resideul of lbs Club should tea member,
be appointed to confer with the' Central Committee
upon the subject.
»m. w. j. onjuian
seconded Ur. La M ojno'a motion. In answur to Judge
Miller, ha would tty that too Opposition Committee
represented the Democrtlo party un maws and those
Republicans who war* willing to Jon with (hem

enough for him, imd It wade no difference that the

Ho would My further, that Mr. A. 0. lleslug, who

Heaing told lera hag Democrats then that he had left

REPUBLICAN ORGANIZATION.
To the Editor of Tho Chicago Tribune.
Chicago, Sopt. 23.—1 sco by this morning's
Tribune that at a private meeting lost evening
it Republican Clnb waa formed in tho Fourteenth
Ward. I eay private, because no public notice—
us far an 1 can learn—waa given of tbo mooting.
Mad tboro boon, I should bavo boon there, and I
know a great many in tbo west port of tbo ward
urho would have boon there also. Tho object of
a Republican organization is to sflenro Repub
lican voters at election. And is not the beet way
(io do this to invito alt Republicans in each
'yard to take part In tho organization 7 Wo cannot
afford to have anything look Tike a close corporation
or packing in tho organization of Republican clubs.'
Dot everything be public and aboveboard, and all
Republicans be Invited to participate In the organiza
tion. Then all will feel a personal responsibility for
(he success of tho organization. Republican voters, as
a class, axe a very Independent set of men, and like
equal rights and fair play. Fourteenth Waud.
Note.—The mooting which was held In Benz’a Hall
Wednesday evening was announced In Tuesday’s and
Wednesday’s TntnuNK. as well as In allthe other city
papers. It was s public meeting, so far aa much ad
vertising could make it to.

OBIAT REPUBLICAN GATHERING AT WARREN.
•Special Diepuleh to The Chicago lYibune,
Cleveland, 0., bept. 23.—Tho great Repub
lican mass-meeting at Warren to-day was one of
the most significant events of tbo campaign.
Tho whole Congressional District represented by
Gen. Garfield united In a groat enthusiastic
demonstration in favor of Republicanism and
honest money ; 25,000 people were as
sembled, and the procession which marched
through the streets and filled the pnbiio square
and adjoining streets was so long that it con
sumed an hour in passing a given point. The
speakers wore Gov. Hayes, Boa Wade, Col.
Orosvonor, aud Judge Taft. Fifteen
bauds of musio, artillery, and fire com
panies, largo delegations from townships, aud an
immense column of voters bearing banners and mot
toes wore included in the procession. Among tho
mottoes wore tho following: "la Hayes wo 'trust •
In Allen wo Dust:” "Give us a Dollar Worth luo
Coots,” "Allen Bays There Is Something Wrong
Hero," "This ie Not Our Funeral—Now York Takes
Care of tbo Corpse." Ono wagon contained a
mlnllng-prcsi, which was constantly engaged
In turning off imitation grooubacka for dis
tribution among the crowd. This wagon
boro tho inscription: " Tho Unlimited Trust and
Confidence Company ; Allen A Gary, Rankers.” Quo
of tho moat ludicrous featured of the precession Was a
largo band of mounted men and boys, dressed in
ever? conceivable garb, and wearing masks. These
worthies claimed to represent tho unwashed aud un
terrified Democracy, and carried Hi-spelled and ex
pressive Inflation ami-free school and free whisky ban
ners.
A barbecue, for which a whole ox bad been routed
and wagon-loads of biscuits provided, was one of tho
features of the day. This was eaten in tho park, aud
above tho stand on which it was placed was the In
scription, •* This in (he true Inflation."
The mana-iucctlng to the afternoon was one of the
most colossal affairs in the campaign history
of tho Btete. The speakers’ stand, tnu band stand
and oven the high cupola of tho Court-House were
covered with flags aud mottoes. Among the Utter
were (he following: •» Tho Dope’s No Go "No fit
