SOON FOR ORGANIZATION.
MANY CONTESTS IN SIGHT.
Meeting Tl'lll Remind One ;of Old
.Time. Caucus of Former. Years—Of
ficers, of the Conncjl ami Other Po-
Hitlons to Be Filled.
A move > is on foot among the members
of the new City Council for a joint meet
ing of the Board and Common Council, to
be held some time next week, for the-pur
pose: of organizing and : electing the vari
ous ofllcials who are to be elected by the
I joint body. The meeting will,; in all prob
| ability,. be held on June 3G. . .
I While the meeting is in no sense an of
| flcial one, it wljr take the place. of the:
Democratic caucus of years ago, and all
It of the officials of botli bodies, as well as
heads of,, many of the city . departments,
will be nominated. ■ !
The session will likely be a spirited. one
and will attracts large crowd. Its result
will be ratified by the two bodies at their
meetings in July. : :
It is practically, settled that President'
Turpinwill be re-elected to his position
: without opposition. ; Mr. Sol ;P. Bloom
berg ..will, bo elected president of the lower
branch. ■ Messrs.- Minor, -Winston, and
Peters,- being- candidates forA'ice-presl-'
dent, leaves that race in great .doubt.
City Clerk August, Sergeant-at-Arms
Rusklll, and Clerk of Committees Mc-
Dowell will be re-elected without opposi
tion. The contests for ; Fire Commission
ers, from Jackson nnd Clay ; Ward, and
Police Commissioner from Lee Ward, will
be the cause: of spirited contests, while
the race : between Collector of Delinquent
Taxes Wallford, for re-election;rand Mr.
Phil Sea'y, for election to iiie porition, is"
a warm one, with no ono able to ; chose
tho winner. . : ; ;
Owing to the several hard fights, and the
consequent hard work on the port of tne
many candidates, there „ is ; an earnest
desire to- have the organization and, elec-:
tioh disposed of as- soon as possible,

; Which, is Overruled— Xcws of the
• .Conrts.';. .'. ' ■ . -'. . ' . •
After having the case under considera
tion since late on Saturday afternoon
the jury : in the case of, Gallogo Mills _vs.
the : City /.of Richmond, last evening re
turned a ;verdict for the- plaintiff for the
sum of . $7,500. 'x This action of ; the : jury^
which; was. composed' of citizens iof . Man-;
Chester, came as a great surprise, as "it
was expected by many ; that: it wouldibe
favorable to the city. '. . ■''-]''■'■
-This is the' third hearing of this impor
tant case, in which ■ damages to tho
amount of $33,000 weret sought to be re
covered. It was stated last night that- the;
Jury -stood eight for allowing damages
for practically the whole amount sued for
and that the remaining; four ; held out for
the. city.; The result,; therefore, is a com
promise. On the first trial of the case the
jury stood nine for, the city andj three for.
the. plaintiff, and at r the second.-seven for
the. city -and five: for the; mills company,;
each- time the" result being a hung jury. ; :
After the rendition -of ■ the last
nigrht City Attorney "Pollard moved the
court that the verdict be set aside. ; This
;was overruled nnd .nothing now remains
for the city to do but to appeal the case
to the Supreme Court or to pay the,dam
ages awarded: - - ; - ■ ;
The investigation of alleged liquor sell
ing on Sunday by the grand jury y ester-;
day came to naught. "The police captains
who' testified before ;theT body disclosed
nothing and the newspaper reporters testl-"
fied that -their respective;; reports were
based on hearsay. evidence; that neither of
them had bought any ., thing, themselves.^ ;
: After considering the question for. some
time, the- following indictments for felony
were returned:- John H. Chandler, .Wil-
liam Allen, Henry Pittman, Charles Wil
liams, Arthur Warwick, Elijah Johnson,
and -.•William"' Smith. : .. ..
