Mass Mbitixo iff Fibst Wabd. A
mass meeting of the First ward Republicans
waa bsld last evenler at the Steven school
bouse, tb president, Uenry Illmbr, In tbe
Mr. Illmber announced thacthlawaa not
a regular meeting or tb club, aad It would
be proper to elect a presiding officer.
Mr. D. M. Davis was accordingly elected,
and on taking tbe chair be ld thla waa tbe
first meeting be had attended tfci eaon.
Ae he waa entering th ball h wa congrat
ulated on comlnr out to-nJcht and abowlosr
hla band. Originally he bad Joined the
First ward Jtepuoucan ciud, ana sun
claimed to be a member. TChecr. 1
In making thi statement he did not desire
to be understood as Impugning the motives
of the Invincible. It would be well If there
were more euch clnbs. If It were possible
be would willingly belong to them all. He
was wholly In favor of supporting the or
ganisation tnai naa carried us tnroagn tne
recent municipal campaigns, li did not
exactly understand tb pnrpos of the matt
ing to night. lie would be glad to be In
formed, and wonld accordingly act.
Mr. Byphar thought It wonld be proper
for the secretary (Mr, William Preoder) to
Eft IBUVs-U S2S iiiSlon.coiSr'
en eea In tbla ward.
Mr, Joseph Jackson wlahed to ask If this
hall was not to be used by tbe First ward
club as well as tbe Invincible elab. To
night the doors were closed and no Are was
kindled for the comfort of the club. If It
was fair for one it was rair ror another.
A discussion here ensued la relation to the
occupancy of tbe ball.
Mr. Charles Syphax proposed to explain
tue wuoie cause oi tue existing trouble,
and read tb original proposition to recon
cile the exlstlne: difficulties In the ward, lie
asked how the proposition wa met t It was
rejected, and the Invincible voud lolldly for
It rejection. It was proposed that the
officer of tb First Ward Club should resign.
They did not Intend to allow the proposition
lo pass. Mr. Illmber wa to resign, aud be
waa toe mouiu-pioce oi toe inrmcinie.
Mr. Sypbax said he would show tbat in
stead ot Mr. Illmber, Mayor Bowen wa tbe
ostensible motive. The committee of con
ference had met, and had considered the
proposition, bnt what did It amount tot It
did not make any difference who wa the
lie Proposed to read tbe raoort of the com.
mitteeas he found It, and he Intended to
criticise It ae be found It. Why did they
not come ont and av that thsv wera antl.
Bowen men and not attempt to cover up their
rani assigns.
A voice. I shall have to call Mr. Sypbax
to order. lie claims to be a member of tha
Invlnclbles, and It poorly becomes a stralght-
lorwara icpuDucan to got up ner Il a mass
meetleg and criticise ear actions as a club.
Mr. Sypbac said be did not -propose to

Tbe Chair. What has that to de with the
question t ue thought the discussion en
tirely Irrelevant.
A voice. Go on and dlsenss the merits of
the question.
Mr. Sypbax. J ait soj that Is what I pro-
pneu u uv,
Mr. Schooler arose to aprlvllegd question,
Mr, SvDbax refused to vlaM the flnnr.
lie said that tba officers of tbe Invincible
were determined to hold on If there were rio
other members of tbe dlsorganlsers sxcept
themselves. Bowen and autl-Bowen was
the war cry. The speaker proposed te show
ap the dissenters, and mentioned tbe same
or Martin, traeraan and Henderson a en
conraglng the dissension.
Mr. Illmber said that Mr. Svnha ahoald
be allowed to proceed, and then ether
speeaere couia criticise ana reply, it waa
evident the motions hod contrary motions
nrn iHua vu sia.uru toe meeting.
Tbe Chair suggtsted that reporters were
present, and It was according to the dignity
of Republican meetings net to talk too
much, and to coo flue the debate to th
merit of the question.
Mr. Byphax was allowed tan minute to
conclude hie remarks. lie said that Alfred
Jones wa to take tbe place or Alderman
Davis, Andrew Freeman was to take tbo
place of Robert Thompson, Councilman!
Mr. Martin was to take Taylor place, and
Mr. O. Clark waa to take Commissioner
lumber's place. He spoke of the nnmbr
of Treasury employee who were so promi
nent In loading tb Invincible. They had
nothing to loso In the comlog campaign,
while the corporation laborera bad every
thing to lose.
Mr, Sandy Lacy defended the Invlnclbles,
He denied that that club bad any elate made
ont. Mr Martin, the president of tbe In
vlnclbles, bad consistently refused all nomi
nations, and wbn hi name wa brought
forwara last year he politely declined. Il
wa a mistaken idea tbat Bowen was tb
"cat In tbe bag." By no meassi tbat wa
the trouble. Was It oa the reoord that the
Invlnclbles wers pldgd for Bowen t Nol
II defied any ef tb cltlxens of the ward to
sustain ench an lddai there was not oie
that could prove It. If Major Bowen did not
serve the people then throw him overboard.
Applause. That was the way to serve
those wbo were elected by the vote of th
people. If Robert Thompson, tb Council
man, did not eery tbe people of the First
ward, was it not the right of the votere to
throw him overboard! Complain about the
