j MUNICIPAL. The Deadlock in the Board City Works Unbroken. of A Possible Contest for Aldermnuic Seats. Uentcn Men Standing' on Technical, ities. Tho deadlock in the Board of City Works continues, and no changes can bo made. Flaherty stubbornly refuses to desert hia f ricud Hayes, tho bell ringer, who has tho temerity to aspire to tho important position of Purveyor, and the negative Bennett is still porched on the fence, from which position he must cither get down or go without patronage. This is the way in which Fiahorty hopes to force him into voting for Hayes. President Blocnm is going along quietly, attending to his business, and is interested in this squabble so far that he does not intend to permit, if possible, the removal of a competent and experienced man like Mr. Rhodes to make room tor such an utterly unfit individual as Hayes. He realize that the public interests would suffor by such a change. The oontest for the Superlntendoucy of Sewors will I easily be settled after the Pureyorsbip ahall have been disposed of. Charley Trowbridge is backed by the John F. Honry Influence for the position. Anothor strong candidate bos appeared in the person of Michael J. Dady, Inspector of tho new Municipal Building, who ia urged by Honest John French aud Mayor Schroodor. PolitlcB make strange bod follows. When Dady was appointod Inspector one of his most bitter opponents was Honest Jo!in. Mike is a Bhrowd young follow. Ho Baw it would bo profilablu for him to get in W(tu joun, so ho did get In witn him. The result is, i that John now regards him aa one of the most promts - t ing young men iu the city. Mike made the boud of friendship very firm when ho went up In tho Twentieth j Ward to superintend the primary for John. Ho hs I also the support of Aldorman Fisher, who Is a power in hinuelf.
