nance was as follows;
Yeas Alderman Lundy, Simmons,
Davis, and Warnock 4.
Nays Alderman O'Neil, Schlemmer
and Woods 3.
The ordinance offered to the City Coun
cil is in the handwriting of Mayor Butler,
and originated with him and his advisers.
As it was originally written it provided the
exemption from taxation, not for five
years, but for the whole lifetime of the
bonds. Upon a strict party vote the
Council would be equally divided acd the
Mayor would have tbe casting vote.
If he could have held his party friends,
in the council to strict party action he
could have carried the measure of total
exemption from taxation by his own casting
vote. The limiting of the time of exemp
tion to five years was a concession to the
unfeeling stubbornness of the democratic
members of the council, who were so un-
pardonably ignorant of the great blessings
which would result to the poor taxpayers if
the rich bondholders could only get hold
of the bonds of tin1 city totally exempt
from any taxation, new, heuceforth. and for
all lime to coiiiO. How could it be of any
consequence to tbe poor laloriug men and
small t?xpyers, who m;ver have any
mouey to speak of, whose little property
pays but suiall taxes, and who don't com
prehend and understand great measures of
finance and administration, that these
bonds should be exempted from taxation.
Their share of taxes is so indifferently
small that one bondholder or capitalist is
equivalent to eleven poor men. Of courf e,
in money matters numbers are ot no ac
count, the great omnipotent bondholder is
worth a dozen of them, and his wishes
must be consulted and his views prepon
derate in equal proportion. Let the gov
ernment consult with and take care of the
rich, and the rich will take care of the
poor. A republican aamimstration oi the
general government exempts bonds from
taxation because "it is the party ot equal
ity and justice." For the same reason,
the noble republican administration of this
city follows suit,and the workingmen are ex
pected to approve their action, because the
Union says to expect that they will dare to
question the acts and the integrity and the
heavenly wisdom of republican leaders and
newspapers "is to accuse the workingmen
of stultification, or to use an expressive
vulgarism, of 'going back on themselves.' "
Don't forget it, workingmen, when the
tax collector is gathering in your taxes,
that although the burden is grievous and
labor scarcely commands daily bread, you
have the immense consolation of knowing
the republican party is the party of equal
ity and justice, because the Union says so
and you know how it is yourselves, for
have you not been living under republican
rule theso many long and exuberantly
prosperous years. Oh, yes! by all
means exempt bonds from taxation,
the laboring men hold so many of those
precious documents.
From the statements of parties who
are believed to know, there are ntty
or sixty thousand dollars of water works
bonds held by certain bondholders, citizens
of this city, upon whioh not a cent of taxis
paid. Does the ased and energetic repub
lican assessor of this city know of any
capitalist holding water works bonds?
And will he be so kind as to inform those
who have to pay their small and insignifi
cant taxes why no one feels the necessity
of listing bonds as a part of their assessa
ble property. It may be "the party of
equality and justice" considers all bonds
are (or ought to be) exempt from taxation,
and in case they are pot specifically made
so by law that they cau be made so in fact
by tbe intentional acts of republican offic
ials, for they certainly are part and parcel
of the administration of this great equality
and justice which is the corner stone of
that noble party that takes such lively in
terest in building up the workingm en's
temporal and financial welfare, and the
acts of all such officials must perforce par
take of the perfection and inscrutable
wisdom of the great "equality and iustjee"
party itself.
j.arice uiesaea are tney wuo are per
mitted to live at all, and the working man
who is too poor to own a bond, and the
tender hearted merciful bondholder who
does own them, share alike the beneficient
blessings of wise and benignant laws justly
own unemployed citizens is ignored and
citizens of another state given the prefer
ence. We say to the laboring men of this
city, that while they are looking around to
find excuses for deserting the only party
that ever practically befriended them,
it would be prudent and proper to look a
little into the proceedings of these very
exemplary good republican friends of tbeir's
right here at home. That very nice young
man, the nephew of an old public teal
sucker and the seven by nine republican
editor, may be the sweetest of sycophants
so long as they can hold their own little ax
to the grind stone, but with all their
professions of ardent love for workingmen
they don't advise the mayof and council to
furnish our own city laborers with work in
preference to citizens of other places. Oh
no, that don't concern the sharpening o
their little ax.

-Many of our workmen complain that
Davenport teams and Milan workmen are
employed on the repairs on our city bridges
at bouth llock Island. Mayor Butler
should see that when efficient Rock Island
teamsters and laborers can be employed
they should be given the job m, preference
to outside workmen. There is considerable
grumbling about this matter, and the
mayor would do well to inquire into it.
