Have You Ever Noticed That Our HATS. The meeting of tho stockholders of the now gas company, held at the Council Chamber last evening, was well attended. Two hundred and forty-three votes were cast and many were present who declined to express a preference. The Council Chamber, the corridors and tho Mayor's office were pretty well crowded. Welf?oi Webster, ae temporary chairman of tho Board, called the meotlnfj to order and nominated Mayor Read for permanent chairman. Mayor Read was chosen by acclamation. The socretaty then read the minutes of tho last two meetings of the Board containing the resignation of Dr. H. D. Hattery and the reference of the presidency to the stockholders. Henry Kruck moved that tho resignation be not accepted but afterwards changed his motion to read "bo accepted" so that the vote could be yes, and DO. A call of the stockholders each to vote according to his shares according to law, was ordered by Chairman Head over the protest of Ed Kearney, recently a candidate in the First Ward. On motion it was ordered that every one present vote by ballot giving name, vote, number of shares and proxies, if any. The ballot showed 2-13 stockholders voting, 160 in favor ot accepting the resignation and 83 against it. Tho 160 voting "yes" voted 1,427 shares. and the 83 voting "no" voted 485 shares. The tellers in summing up made a variation. Both agreed as to "no's." but one had 1,451 "yeas," ard the other 1,427. Tho lowest figure is here given. The chair declared the resignation accepted and called /or nominations to fill tho vacancy. B. C. D. Read and W. T. Wilson were placed In nomination. Mr. Wilson declined, stating that this was a time when everybody ought to vote tho democratic ticket. Ho called attention to the fact that an evening paper, the organ of the old gas company, had asserted that tho Journal was actuated by political motives and he believed the stockholders ought to disprove this charge. John E. Barnes moved that the selection of B. C. D. Road, ae director to succeed Dr. Hattery bo made by acclamation an it was unanimously carried. Mayor Read mado a speech accept. Ing the trust and pledging loyalty. It was then announced that a recommendation for the presidency was In order and John E. Barnes moved that Dr. Jordan be recommended, There was no other nomination and the chair put the motion by acclamation and It was carried. Dr. Jordan responded In a few words thanking the stockholders for tho honor and pledging himself to tho cause. Weldon Webster was recommended for vice president and he aleo pledged himself to the new enterprise. After tho stockholders meeting, the directors met and ratified the action of the stockholders and adjourned to meet Thursday evening next. The Board now stands M. A. Jordan, president; Woldon Webster, vice president and theso two and John E. Barnes, B. F. Keeeling. B. C. D. Reaci, Henry Kruck, James Q'Connell, Alex Hardy and E. A. Hall, directors.
