A South side Romance.
On the South Side there lives a ladv
who conducts a bakery business. She ha*
a daughter, which is not strange, but
when the daughter ami a young hakei
whom she had in her employ, fell in love
with each other, the mother frowned upou
them and discouraged their love, but
finding no other way to stop it
she advised the young man to
seek another situation, which he did. And
so matters went along. The mother sup
posed she had foiled the young folks, hut
she hadn't, and they met often and re
newed their vows of love. A ball was gi ven
on the South Side the other night, and th«
lovers attended and hid a good time. But
it appears they took advantage of the op
portunity aud skipped by the light of th«
moon and haven't beeu beard of since.

TBE m MEETING
Of the New Council Held Yesterday After
noon.
REPOBLICAH NOMINEES ELECTED.
The Mayor, Clerk and City Sergeant Take
The Oath.
ELECTION OF OFFICERS TUESDAY.
Tliere was a very large attendance of
voters at the City Hall yesterday after
noon to see the new Conocil take hold.
Long before three o'clock, the hour set for
calling the Branches to order, the galleries,
corridors and lobbies were crowded, and
when the gavel fell in the Second Krauch
there was standing room only in all that
portion of the second story reserved for the
use of the general public. The members
elect, together with the majority of the
gentlemeu who served in the old Council,
were on hand in excellent time, aud speut
the interval before three o'clock in dis
cussiug the result of the election, the prob
able successful aspirants for the city offices
to be tilled, and kindred topics, while
through and about the throog a countless
swarm of Republican candidates circulated
in an untiring manuer aud kept up a con
tinual buzz as they endeavored to secure
pledges of support for some desired position.
Among the crowd, too, were many well
known citizens, drawu to the scene through
curiosity, whde up in the galleries the
colored man and brother formed a dusky
background to a scene which was instinct
with life and lull ol' interest.
As 3 o'clock approached the members of
each Branch drifted into their respective
chambers, those fortunate individuals who
had beeu members of the farmer Council
and had secured a re-election taking their
old seats, while the new comers took pos
session of such vacant desks as they could
tind. A numlier of ex-members were also
seen inside the railings, prepared to
watch the organization, while their
thoughts wandered hack to the scene in
the old Ark when they had tfrst answered
to the roll call of the Clerk. •
A considerable portion of the crowd had
beeil attracted by a persistent rumor that
Mr. Thomas F. Thoner would demand a
recouut of the ballots cast for the office of
Clerk, and when it became apparent that
uothing of the sort would transpire doz
ens of gentlemeu, for whom the routine
business had no iutercst, left the building.

B. S. A 1.1. ISO N TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN.
Promptly sit three o'clock Mr. Healy
aiwt> in the Second Branch aud called tin
memlters to order, moving that .Mr. Urine
Ulke tlie chair temporarily. .Mr. Allison
opposed this bestowal of an empty honor
upon a Democrat, urging that it was the
Mayor's place to call the Brunch to order
and take charge until the Sergeant's re
turu of the election had been read and the
members sworn in. Mr. tiruse took issue
with Mr. Allison, and a warm discussion
ensued l»etwecu the two, Mr. Caldwell
ending it by producing the Sergeant's re
turn and saying it had been usual with
past Councils to take that return upon its
lace under the temporary Presidency of
the Mayor.
His Honor Mayor (Srubb appeared at
this juncture aud took the chair. Rapping
for order, he said :
"(.« knti.km EN :—You have been assem
bled, iu ait'ordance with law, to hear the
result of the election for city otlieers and
Counciliuen, held January 27th. The
Clerk will read tue result for members of
this ltranch."
Clerk 1 towers then read the list of candi
dates lor the Second Brauch in the various
wards with the vote received by each, it
being identical with the returns published
iu the Keoisteii of last Friday. The
readiu£ being concluded, His Honor said:
"It appears from the returns that the
gentlemen present have been elected to the
Second Branch of Couucil. They will
come forward and be sworn."
The Clerk called the names of the mem
bers elect by wards, ami the gentlemen
came forward and formed a semi-circle iu
trout of the President's desk—all but
Messrs. Jaeger and Miller, who were not
yet in the room. A delay occurred until
the missing members had been found, Mr.
ti. B. Caldwell growling, *nII» rouf: "Voit
might swear some Kcpublican would be
away!" Finally the tardy oues put iu an
appearance, and the roll was culled as fol
lows: Allison, B. S., Auber, Frank, Butts,
J. K., Bremer, Conrad, Caldwell, ti. B ,
Davis, C. L., Garvin, T. M., tiilleland, K.

All being preseut, the oath w&sadmiuis
tered by the Mayor. When the members
bud resumed their seats His Honor an
nounced that nominations for temjiorary
chairman were in order.
TEMPORARY PRESIDENT.
Iu response to this, Mr. Healy nomi
nated Mr. tiruse, and Mr. Jones Mr. Alli
son. Mr. tiruse declined, and Mr. Allison
was chosen unanimously. Ou taking the
chair Mr. Allison said :
"GENTLEMEN :—I thank you most sin
cerely for the compliment of the office of
temporary chairman. I have only one
word to say, and that is I hoj>e that every
thing will be done in harmony, and with
out ill feeling or jarring. The tirst busi
uess will he the examination of the poll
books and certificates of election for mem
ber* of the Secoud Branch. When our
membership is thus known it will lie
proper to proceed to the election of a |>er
maueut Presidcut."
The Mayor and Clerk's return of the
poll liooks aud tally slice ta were then read.
Mr.'Caldwcll said a formal examination
was not usual, except iu case of doubt or
of a coûtent. As there was uothiug of the
sort apparent, he otfered a resolution cm
bodyiug the returns of the vote cast, aud
upon his motion it was adopted unani
mously.
Mr. Allison then declared nominations
for President to lie in order.
Mr. Caldwell took the lloor and said:
"Mb. Chairman:—I wish to pla«-e in
uoiuinatiou in behalf of the Republican
aide of the house—and I hope the vote for
hiu» will not be confined to that side—a
gentleman who is recommended to the
majority side of the Second Branch by the
fact that h is election will be a recognition
of the ward of the city from which
came the largest Republican majority at
the recent election, and a recognition, also,
that something is due that portion of the
city. His election will also lie a recog
nition ol the service of the geutleuiau.
and of the c«oscieotioas manner in which
l)e has discharged his duties in the past,
while H will be a tribute to lus estimable
personal characteristics. Me is not a new
aud untried member, ile is commended
by a very considerable experience in city
aJt'airs. We all know that in the discharge
of his duty he has neyer tagged. We all
kuow biui to lie courteous, alhtble and en
ergetic as a member of this body. Of him
it can truly lie said, 'Well done, thou
good and faithful servant,' and I am sure
^ majority of his fellow-iuemliers are
willing for him to enter into the joys of
President of the üieamd tfranph, if he can
find any. [Laughter.] I know ho will
discharge the duties incombent upon him
without regard to political distinction, and
that be will be free from personal malice,
and I think that when we come, two years
hence, to pass the usual tally resolution,
it will be with sinceer feelings ot regard for
Mr. R. M. Gilleland, of the Eighth ward.
I ask that you vote for him, and give
kiaadministration a hearty support."
Mr. Robertson took the floor and said:—
••Ms. Chairman:—I rise to name a
gentleman who has had a large experience
I in city legislativ« mattern, and who ban
I been sent here again and again by his con
1 sti tuent*. I refer to Mr. A. C. Harrell, of
the First wardj» He is a gentleman who
has nothing of the mugwump about hihi,
and I hope it will be the pleasure of mem
bers to give him their support."
There were uo other nominations, and a
vote was taken, resulting in the choir« of
Mr. Oilleland by two majority in a strict
party vote. When Mr. Gilleland's name
was called, he begged to be; excused from
voting. When Mr. Harrell's name was
called, he said he had intended to compli
ment Mr. Gillcland by a vote, but in view
of the request of his competitor he must
beg to be excused also.
When the vot« had been announced, Mr.
Gillelaod came forward, aud was sworn in
by Mr. Allison. In taking the Chair he
said:
"Gentlemen ok the Second Branch
ofCoCNCIL:—I thank you kindly for the
honor conferred upon me. In filling the
position of President of this body, I may
make mistakes in ruling, but 1 will ask
yon in advance to excnse them. I promise
you that I will not be partisan in ihe ex
ercise of the office. Again I thank you
kindly.'*
THE STANDING COMMITTEES.
Mr. Caldwell offered a resolution pro
viding lor a joint committee of three from
each Btanch to prepare the standing com
mittees.
Mr. Gruse ofi'ered an amendment, add
ing the Mayor aud Presideut of the Sec
ond branch to the Committee, and after a
spirited and lengtbgr debate the amend
ment was adopted, ayes 20, uoes 7. The
motion as amended was then adopted.
Mr. Allison moved that the First Branch
be notified that the Second was ready to

The motion was adopted, and Mr. Alli
son was sent on the mission.

with a great deal of pleasure.
The leading society event of the past
week wits the marriage of Mr. James Kel

took place at St. Mathews church, Thurs
day evening at 9 o'clock. It was oneol the
most beautifully arranged and carried out
church weddings ever seen in Wheeling.
For au hour previous to the ceremony
Miss Mary Wilde, organist of the church,
rendered à programme of brilliant and en
livening nuisic, while the guest« assembled,
and at H o'clock the church presented a
scene ol animation and beauty. Promptly
at the hour set the notes of the Mendels
sohn wedding march heralded the entrance
of the wedding party. First the ushers,
Messrs. J. M. Weist ling and Walter A. j
Bloomtield, and Messrs. Peebles Tatnm
aud Will McD. Miller, of Steul»euville,
entered in pairs, followed by the brides
maids and groomsmen, Mr. T. K. Me
Knight, of Pittsburg, and Miss Anuie
Clark, and Mr. Sam B. Harrison and
Miss Jcnuie Bailey. Next came the bride,
leaning upon the arm of her father.
Mr. John Frew, being immediately pre
ceeded by her maid ot honor, Miss Bettie
McLure. The ushers separated at the
chancel steps and the bridesmaids and
groomsmen at the railing. When the
bride and lier father reached the foot of the
chancel steps they were met by the groom
and his liest mau, Mr. Austiu Beach, who
appeared from the vestry room, the bride
taking the groom's arm while the two gen
tlemen occupied positions ou either side.
In this manner the altar was reached,
where Rev. K. liusli Swope, rector of St.
Matthew's church, in the Episcopal service
pronounced the couple man and wife,
while the organist softly played several
touching and lieautiful airs. At the con
clusion of the ceremony, the bride and
groom, followed by the uiaid ot honor and
best man, and the bridesmaidsand grooms
men, andjUshers, r* aptctivrly, retired to
the strains ol the Thannhanser wedding

aud Fourteenth streets, when an elegant
reception followed. The residence was
handsomely decorat«! and presented a
pretty appearance. The bride and
groom aud their attendants occupied a
position in the front parlor, where they
received the guests, assisted by Mrs. John
Frew aud Miss Mary Frew. Of course,
congratulations and good wishes were
fairly showered upon Mr." and Mrs. Hall.

XO IMMEDIATE AURM.
The Report of tli«« Committee Appointed
to Examine the First Ward School.
Following will be found the report ol
the Committee ol experts appointed to
examine into the alleged dangerous con
dition of the First ward school.
Wheeling, January 29, 18.37.
To the Board of Education:
At your request we have made au exam
ination of the First ward school building,
and we see no recent ev idence of any gi v
ing away of the building, and think it
stands the same as it did after the recent
improvement« were made, such as taking
down the gable wall and putting iu the
iron braces to the side and rear walls, un
less the building should be settling bodily
to the west
The heating system in the building is
not construeted as it should be, but with
careful management is not dangerous.
The escapes are as good as will be seen in
school buildings generally, but the upper
stairways may be a little narrow'. We
can see nothing that can give immediate
alarm.
We lind the building on the west side,
by plumb line from top to bottom, to lean
to the west at northwest corner two ami
one-half inches, southwest corner, two
inches, and the middle three inches. At
what ]>eriod this occurred we are uuahle
to determine.
With these and other matters ofgeneral
construction, we think it would lie unwise
for the Hoard to further spend more
money on repairs to this building, as it is
only a matter ol a few years when it will
have to lie rebuilt
Kespcctfnlly submitted,
K. W. Wei.ij»,
