Marriage-Licenses Issued in Chi
cago Last Week.
A Gratifying Increase in the Number—
The Eeason Why.
Tor some cause or another the uumberof mar
rioge-lieenEcs issued from week to week is on
the increase. Last week the total number is
sued was ninety-tour, which is an increase of
eleven over the previous week, and during the
t , eren dav* closing yesterday 104 were
issued, an increase o£ ten over the preceding
week. The scientist could .divine, no doubt,
anv number of causes for the increase, and
among the first would be the rapid growth of
the city. Then again he could find a cause in
the softening of the Chicago heart; in the beau
ty and refinement of the' ladies; in the im
proved morality of the opposite sex; in the
mellowing influences of churches and schools;
in the approach of spring-tune. But theories
amount to hut little in the face of the broad,
jpcontrovcrtiPle fnct that people get married
because they want to. This is simple, but it is
true, and it is a part of the experience of 90 per
cent of those who contribute to the increase to
which attention has been directed. The follow
la- list embraces the parties to whom licenses
have been issued the past week, with their ages

A ainnee at the list shows that Monday and
oaturday have been the favorite davs lor ob
taining: licenses, and that comparatively few
have been taken out Thursday. It also shows
that, the week has been very favorable to
widows and persons of unpronounceable names,
and that the demand lor wives who have been
divorced has been unusually light* It will also
be noticed that the misses who have passed
25 years have been more successful than usual
in forming: alliances, while some of the 3*ounircr

who lias shouldered the responsibility of goimr

youngest lady who has consented to become a

issued were 4S years each; and the yonmrest
were 21 ana 10, respectively. -The number of
licenses issued to iion-rcsfdeuts has not been so
great, yet Vermont, Ohio, Indiana, and Wiscon

HOW DO BIRDS CHOOSE THEIR HATES?
4 ‘On the fourteenth of February,” so they say,
“ Birds choose their mates ”; and without delay
Prepare for their Northern wedding-tour
When soft breezes sigh, “Winter’s reign ia o’er,”
Just fancy the birds in one grand convention,
The fair ones bitting a little apart.
In a tumult of joy, and all attention
To the veriest feminine tricks of art.
One little bird who’s remarkably pretty
Thinks her chances arc all very fair.
As she sits and warbles a simple lovc-ditty
With a must provoUiugly charming air.
Such a fluttering of hearts us well as of feathers.
Such blushes and smiles, and Oh me’sj and T
Were seldom before heard of among the birds.
Or don’t they put on airs, and try to appear
So very unconscious when their lovers are near?
As If they did not know that each little bird
Of the sterner male persuasion
Would cuter their precincts without a word
Of apology for the occasion,
And choose the one-from all the rest
That to him is dearest, and sweetest, and best.
And ask her to be his wife.
And do you suppose this maiden wise
Looks up with her soft, brown, blrdyeyes.
As though she was taken quite by surprise,
And says, “Well, really, X did not expect
So great an honor: pray let me reflect ”?
Or, true to the urorapfingof instinct, replies,
Without coquetry or foolisli disguise,
“X love you better than ray life.
And will oe your own true, faithful wife
Tflrou*»h rain and sunny weaiher” —
And thus the two are wed together?
And do you suppose fob I ’twoold be too sad— *
1 hope nothing ever happens so bad!)
That some little bird is left unwed,
Because so limb she held her head.
And thought herself better than others.
Ur it muj’ be she loved Master Dick all the time,
While to woo her came Tommy and Harry,
And so she was forced lo the sad conclusion
That she should never marry.
But must seek our Nortuern bowers alone,
With no mate to cheer her witn love-note or song.
Or to point out the beauties as they journey along
O’er mountain, and vaiiey, and plain?
And maybe it sometimes bappena, too, r
Tnat some lord of the bird creation,
Who fancies helms noihing else to do
But propose to a fair relation.
Finds out, to his great chagrin and dismay,
On this wonderful match-making holiday.
She is not so anxious as he. tmmgnt.
And love is a thing that cannot be bought,
Or had for merelytue asking.
But no! I believe a happier state
Of things exists in simple Bird-laud*
And every soagsier nas his mate,
And never fails to win her hand;
And no fair oue id left by Fate
For faithless lover lo watch and wait
Through long and weary years.
I wish some famous liaturah'st.
Who has learned the dialect of birds.
Would give us a chapter on Love and Marriage
In their own sweet, simple words.
It might serve to enlighten poor, reasoning man,
And maybe develop some wondrous plan
Whereby matches could be made a little more even,
And perfect, and true, as they’re planned out in
I am sure all old maids, and bachelors too,
Would crowu him with blessings life’s journey
And mismuted couples would hail with delight
Some wise little plan for setting things right.

THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE; SUNDAY. FEBRUARY 9. 1879-SIXTEEN PAGES.
Comptroller Farwell's Annual Re
port-Assets and Liabilities.
The Back-Tax Account-Issue of Scrip
—Keeping Down Expenses.
Following is the annual report of the Cora
trollcr, .Mr. Fanveli, to the Finance Committee:
Gentlemen: I have orepared for vonr examina
tion a statement of the receipts ami expenditures
of the City of Chicago for the fiscal year ending
Dec. 51, 1878, and of Ua financial condition at that
date; • *•
The collections of onr revenno have been about
up to the average of the past few years, with the
execution of the personal-property tax in the South
Division. Irregularities in the proceedings of
the various Boards of Equalization led to litiga
tion a* to a portion ot that lax, which has finally
been declared illegal oy the Supreme Court, re
sulting in the loss of n considerable amount to both
city and county. And here we have presented to
us again one of the embarrassing features of our
revenue sysiem. The assessments are made, and
the revenue collected, by officers over whom the
city as n corporation has no control. Then, again,
we make our entire year’s expenditures on the sup
position that ait proceedings of these town and
county officers and Boards will be regular and
legal; but this cannot be determined until utter
the expiration of the year, when the attempt is
made to collect the tax on the strength of whicn
collection all of onr expenditures have been made.
The uncertainty attending all our financial opera
ions becomes at once apparent. ■
Tne city obtained judgment in August last in the
County Court for the greater portion of the back
taxes of 1875 and 1874, the Conn rejecting as il
legal certain items in the Aoproprlatiun ordinances
for each of those years, amounting to 1G per cent
of 1875 and 14 per cent of 1874. A number of the*
objectors, however, appealed from this decision to J
the Appellate Gburt, where ‘the decision of the
lower Court baa just been affirmed. Pending the
result of *ho appeals, the remainder of the delin
quent real estate was ottered for sale, but was
larcely forfeited to the State.
Amount so forfeited for !S7M.
Amount so forfeited for 1574.
Those amounts arc extended on the tax warrants
for 1878 with 10 Per cent penalty added, and I an
ticipate the collection of something Irom this
sonrcc during the coming eqason.
\V T e have also recentiy obtalm-d an order of sale
in the County Court for property appealed on taxes
of T 875 (which cases have been returned from the
Supreme Court), less 9 per cent for items deemed
illegal. This sale is Uxed for Feb. 17, 1879, and
me amount there involved is $238, 8D7.09.
In addition to the losses above noted on the real
estate tuxes for 1873, 1874, and 1875, 1 have
charged off as worthless the balance of items for
personal-property taxes of 1871, 1872. 1875, and
1879, amounting to $902,382.09, deemin'; it a
fallacy to longer treat them as assets. Addins all <
these losses to certain other items in the various
tax levies, lost by reason of errors, failures, re
movals, douulo assessments, etc., wc find a total
of $1,117,989.10 which has been charged back to
the various accounts and departments according
to the original appropriations and levies. We still
hold on the boons pcrsonal-prop6rty taxes of 1873
and 1874 to the amount of $308.057.20 ion city
basis), and also of 1877 $198,730.04 (on Slate
basis). It remains to he seen how much of these
sums will be realized.
The recommendations heretofore made by me for
certain changes in the Revenue Jaw regarding the
lime for the collection of our annual revenues have
assumed definite shape in the preparation of a bill
which has been introduced into the Legislature,
and which includes this among other desirable pro
visions*. It is to be hoped that some act with these
general provisions may meet with favor from our
Early last season an opinion was announced by
tlic Supreme Court of this Slate.-which m effect
practically prevented the citv from anticipating its
revenues In the maimer which had formerly been
the practice, to-wit: borrowing the necessary funds
on certificates or warrants, and paying its current
expenses, interest on the bunded debt, etc., in
cash, repaying the lender when luxes came in.
In this dilemma we found ourselves forcca to re
sort to the issue of warrants on the City Treasurer,
payable from the taxes of the current year (18781
when received by him,— being a virtual assignment
of so muen of the tax levy in advance of its col
lection, as the warrant represented, and applicable
to the payment of same amount of city taxes lor
that .year when the tux warrant should come into
me hands of the Collector. These we believe to
be in strict conformity with the decision referred
to, and also with that in the Springfield case, dc
cUktl by the same Court a few months earlier. Our
enute year's expenses have been met in yds man
ner,—excepting u portion of the miscellaneous re
ceipts ami a saving of previous years in some of the
departments applicable thereto, which have aided
us ton certain extent. While this course is not
entirely free from objections, yet I see no better
way until by yearly savings in each department
and the issuance of warrants to a limited percent
age of the appropriation 6, a sntlicient Income shall
be in process of collection and coincident with the
KEEPING DOWN EXPENSES,
I take pleasure in bearing testimony to the de
termined und wise action of his Honor the Mayor
in compelling each department to so arrange its
expenses as to come within 83 per cent of the
amount appropriated for the year, and, together
with him, 1 have maintained this position in the
payment or all claims presented, so that, with an
average collection of taxes this year, all warrants
drawn as above will be redeemed the present year,
—in fact, there are but few of the appropriations
which have been drawn upon to the extent of $5
REDUCING TUB DEBT.
I am happy to be able to record the fact that our
bonded pebt, as well as our floating liabilities, has
been materially reduced, we having paid and can
celed during the year, of Municipal, Sewerage.and
Uiver-lmprovement bonds, $52,000, and of Water
bonds £233.000 (in addition to the £IOO,OOO Water
nones which we were obliged to sell in January
last to meet those maturing at that time). This
lessens the bonded dcot ny $307,000. and, together
with those retired in 3877, makes a total net re
duction of the bonded debt during tbe two years of
$579,000, these two being the first retirements of
Water bonds In the history of the city, with the
exception of those destroyed by lire in 1871, which
belonged to the Sinking Fund.
In addition to this we have retired the balance of
revenue warrants of 3870, and all of 1877 (except
$2,530 of 1877, the holders of which we have been
unable to find, but forwhich we have the money in
hand), and have paid $104,515. Oil on the old cer
tificates of indebtedness of years prior to 1870.
We have also restored the Canal Hcdemption
fund to a considerable extent, having paid m cash,
toward the construction of the City-Hall, the sum
We have likewise added to the various sinking
funds their proportion of the buck tax receipts,
and have applied the same to the purchase and can
cellation of bonds, us noted above.
As you are aware, a judgment was obtained on
the bond of cx-Cily Treasurer David A. Gage, in
the Circuit Court of this county, on the 30th of
Mafch last, in favor of the city, for the sum of
$307,703.58. From this judgment the defendants
took an appeal to the Appellate Court of this dis
trict, where the judgment of the Circuit Court was
reversed. From this latter decision the city has
appealed to the Supreme Court of ! Ins State.
The suit on the bond of ex-city-Collecior Gcorgd
Von Hollen has not yet been tried.
The amount appropriated by the City Council
MarchS, 1878, for the fiscal year ending Dec. 31,
