ED. herald A Veteran Eepublican. Oshkosh. Wis., Sep'ember 22. Congratulations personally conveyed and also through tbe medium of a de luge of a telegraphic dispatches and tetters are pouring in this morning upon ex-Senator Philetas Sawyer. It is the Mghty-first anniversary of the birth of tbe most distinguished repub lican statesman that the Badger state has contributed to the galaxy of men of national fme and thus, notwith standing the fact that his life has been marked in its early stages by pr vations and later by many decades of arduous work in the interest of his country, he bas passed by eleven years the span of life allotted a man by the prophet. There is something of a paral'el be tween Philetas Sawyer and Gladstone, for tbe one a statesman or the Old World and the other a statesman of the new still maintain an active inter est in the affairs of their respective countries, but the parallel ceases in tbe fact that whila Gladstone is today little more than a reminiscence to the great liberal party over which he once weilded authority, the grip of Philetas Sawyer upon the republican pontics of the Badger state is as firm and tena cious as it was more than a quarter of a century ago when the Hoards, Lifol letes, am other leaders ot the vou De- republicans of Wisconsin were but emerging from their swaddling clothes. Perhaps one of the greatest triumphs of bis life was achieved at the repub lican state convention held in Mil waukee in June of last year for the purpose of selecting delegates to the St Louis national convention. Forty eight hours before the arrival of the first of tbe delegates on the field the most intimate friends of the eight-year ud politician confessed that be would be defeated as delegate-at-lare and thus retired from public life, but so potent was the personality of the old veteran who in the meantime bad met and greeted every delegate to tbe gathering that when the convent'on met bis name was the first BubmitUd and his selection was indorsed by ac clamation. Tbe former, senator has several times declared that he is 1 o longer a candidate for public office, but there are many who believe that be fore the close of bis active life he will again be seen and beard upon tbe floor of tbe United States senate.

The city council met this afternoon for further consideration of the White Oaks railway franchise matter. There were also from sixty to seventy five citizens present, including representa tives of the opposing railway parties. While waiting for Alderman Brunner, the mayor said Consul Mallen had asked leave to discharge fireworks on the government plaza this evening. Petition granted. The mayor then said he thought the special matter in ques tion had better be laid over until after tbe October railroad meeting. W. II. Surges then asked again for a fran chise and on what terms tbe franchise would be granted to tbe El Paso and White Oaks railroad; what the for feit would be, where the road could be laid, etc. It was only justice to give the answer requested and not un necessarily delay petitioners. Mr. Hawkins said this was what he expect ed. His correspondents had stated it at if the council would not grant other franchises which would interfere with them, that they would put up $10,- 000 guarantee to begin work in 60 days nd complete the same in due time. Mr. Hawkins said we stand where we did Monday, except that we do not ask for delay. We know where we want our franchise, and if this council has faith in us and will not grant franchises to beat our heads with, we ire ready now to put up a deposit as guarantee of gocd faith. I think there sbou a be an expression by you as to whether parties here have convinced you of their good faith and ability. Our position is not an attack on your respected citizens. We do not ask for a menopo'ys. only an indication that you will not pass such legislation as will embarrass us. Mr. Burges said some counciimen thought $ 0,000 the proper guarantee ind others $25,000. As for the T. & P., the line interesting them could be expunged from the proposed fran chise. But could we nave responded Monday to your proposition? All we 18k is to tell us on what terms you are willing to give the franchise. We are willing to co-operate with tne city ior its benefits, but we will not agree on such action that will forever preclude as from asking for a franchise. We vre not objecting to the $10,000 Item, only tell us what your terms are; one thing on tbe other. We will deal with you fairly. If we can not comply with its terms, we will get out ot the way. Mr. Hawkins said the $10,000 is here aid we have it at the present time. (Applause). Tru, there was no formal resolution Monday as to the amount to be put up, but the opinion was tbat $10,000 was little enougn. You have the opportunity to close this matter. If it wrong to adjourn Monday lest you should lose the opportunity it is the same today, w e are nere to -leal with you as a body of men ready 10 do tbe best you can. "What is your proposition, Mr. Haw kins?" called Mr. Burges. Mr. Hawkins replied: "Our proposi tion is to build a White Oaks . road in the shortest time possible if the city will show us tbat it will deal with us so tbat we will not be interfered with." Alderman Burton said let us not wait longer, as it is evident we are to have a railroad to White Oaks. (Ap plause). Judge Coldwell said he was ready to act tonight if it was only shown what was wanted of tbe council; and as far as be was concerned he did not feel like granting two franchises. (Applause.) The motion to adjourn this matter till after tne uctooer meeting was reconsidered unanimous ly. After Eoma sparring between Messrs. Hawkins and Burges, the lat ter held Mr. Hawkins' people had no corporate existence, bad no company, only a little tin horn outfit on the hill that lied for want of 310.000. Let him state his proposition and come to time; don't knock us down, to please whom f Landsharps, greengoods men or whom Name your proposition and let us know wno you are open your bay! (Applause.) J udge Uoid well then moved it be tne sense of the city council not to grant more than one franchise for a road to White Oaks until the first is built. (Applause) Carried unanimously. Mr. Hawkins then offered amid ap plause, bis proposition for a franchise for a road to White Oaks, offering to deposit $10,000 as guarantee to build tbe road, to commence within 90 days in the city limits and in 9 months to reach the New Mexico line. The clos est attention was paid to the reading. A. Eddy for C. B. Eddy signed the petition. Here the council took a re cess of ten minutes to consider the mat ter. After the recess in which the alder men were shown over the route on pa per, to be followed by Mr. Eddy's road, the council adjourned to meet to morrow at 10 a. m. to consider the bill for the franchise ordinance offered by Mr. Hawkins. In the mean time $10,000 in cash was put up by Mr. Hawkins as guarantee 01 good faith on tbe part of Mr. Eddy. Next in Boston. Springfield, iTl., Sept. 22.
