City Attornoy Flint, who is chair man of tho Democratic oxooutivo com mittco, says he will call at an early datu a mooting of tho committee to dotermino how nominations shall bo made. He has been approached by candidates and the. r friends submit ting various propositions. Sotno ad vocato primaries, others a convention and ii few a frco for nil raco. Demo crats should begin to think about this as tho la-it might mean much to the party. Mr. Flint will begin Hoon to go into tho oounty to organizo clubs and has been requested to deliver some speeches. Matters in tho police department aro dull at present. Thn jinitor thinks that tho ghost of Geo. Ward has voudooed the calaboose. Tho colls are empty at all cvonts. John Fee tells us at the meeting of Pat Clpburno camp to conaidor wheth er or not it should join tho United Confederate vetorau, no action was had. Tho delegates to Dallas and New Orloans will roport on the mat ter upou thoir return. The delega tion will be oomposed of all members who doairo to go. In tho case of A. Friedman vs The City in tho county court Judge Hardy granted the city a new trial. At this term of the court a jury cave Fried man a verdict for $300. Tho oaso had been tried oneo before and result ed in a mistrial. The argument was opened by E. E. Eastorling for tho oity, Mr. Baker followed him for tho plaintiff and Mr. Flint closed for the oity. We dosire to make spooial mention of Mr, EaBtorhng's argument It was lucid, clear and prosonted with muoh foroe and ingenuousness. Mr Eastorling has an office with Flint, Downs ana Flint. He assists tho oity attorney in the recorders oourt and brings to all prosecutions the greatest fairness. There has been so much tajk about tho Milwaukeo people buying tho bonds that it has naturally brought out muoh interesting history of bond sales by the oity. It is a matter of common notoriety that the Milwiu kco people oneo contemplated buying from Mayor McOulloch and he con ferred with their agtnts to that end. W. S Kinoheloe, in the absence of C. G. Morgan, the agont here of the Mutual Life Milwakeo, called upon Mayor McCullooh for a transcript of the proceedings of the city council and other data gertnam to the bonds Mr. MoCullooh seeing a possible chance to sell put himself to consider able trouble to prepare and furnish papers. There was some correspond ence. Afterward during the mayor's absenee in Now York they asked for some other information about the matter and City Treasurer Seloy promptly furnished it. Nothing come of it and tho company was novor hoard from again until tho lato negotiations with tho hiBtory of whioh the public is fully acquainted. As Col. Payne'a speeoh relative tho employment of assistant counsel in the Street Improvements oases has O7oked some comment about tho mat ter, and Btanding alone might lead to some misapprehension as to its real status we deem it no, more than faro justioo to all parties to state all the facts. Mr. Flint himself suggested suoh employment and only did so af ter the freest discussion of tho matter with mombers and with his friends. Ho prepared tho resolution whioh brought up the matter, and which res olution suggested tho appointment of a committeo to consult with him as to tho advisability of suoh a course. No firm was designated in tho resolution as Mr. Flint was unwilling to be placed in tho attitude of favoring any particular firm. That he deemed a matter for tho council. Tho resolu tion reoitod the faots that there was already ponding fifty suits against tho oity, somo cases of trespass to title, others for damagos, One of theso last for $50,000, anothor for the sum of $15,000. The jurisdiction of the re corder's court has been enlarged and frequently oases aro contested whioh take tio whole day in their trial. Thoso are appealed and havo to bo followed to tho county oourt. Ho has also to advise oounoil, prepare con tracts, etc Tho oases in which ho .oillions of Homes suggests assistanoo involvo in the ag gregrato the gigantio sum of $200,000 and will necessitate hundreds of oases. Mr. Flint has already filed some of tho suits. Ho has and had a praotico beforo his election as oity attornoy. No oity attorney has ever abandoned entirely his prao tico, this would be suicidal to any lawyer, bcoauso ho could not hopo to hold tho oflici' for a longer time than two terms. No suoh gigantio litiga tion has tho city ever had and yot ovory city attornoy bofoie Mr. Flint has ropoatedly had assistance. Mr Flint in nil tho important litigation during his t"rm has never had. any help, nor will he in all suits now pending. The employment of Baker and Prendergast bus reforencp to only ono street improvement case anu tho fee is an extremely small ono for such aid. Mr, Flint know thatoritioism would follow and so stntod to tho committeo. He stated further that bo was willing to abido the consequence, that he did not want it said hereafter, that bo from vanity or false professional pride or tho fear of oritioism was unwilling to aooept aid from his older and abler professional brethren in the most stu pendous litigation the city will over havo. The public knowing tho faots will doubtless endorso tho aotion of the city attorney and tho oounoil. It is a mattor of grave importance. JUSTICE COURTS. AJustleoof the Peace Fines Him- solf.
