Those who remained until Mr. Wegensr's speech were well repaid for braving tbe col* night and spending three bourn in tbe official "smoke- hooie," for such tbe council chamber might well be called. Tbe ladles of St. Patrick's church atked for use of city hall for a fair. Tbe tax collector a«ked tbe use of tbe old express office. Both were referred to Public Buildings committee. Tbe Olty Counsellor sent in a report asking for a reassessment on Bast Second street to cover cost of tbe sewer put down some years ago and or«r which there has been litigation. It was adopted. Mr. Robenstein was given another Inning on his celebrated Jank-thop business. It appears there wer« others iti the junk business who bad not been required to pay license, so the suit was ordered dismissed upon tbe payment of costs by Rubensteln. The resignation of 7T. B. Starr from the School Board was accepted and H. L. Winter appointed to the place. Wo>", Manpin & Curdle presented a bill of 9833.40, the same being estimated as profits on contracts taken out of tbeir bands. The North Alton Brick Oo. had a bill of |93 51 for balance doe for brick on State street. Both referred to Claims committee. W. T. Norton asked to be allowed to buy old safe in city hall. A committee was appointed to appraise the safe and the Comptroller was authorized to sell it at appraised value, Tbe Mayor's veto of the Mississippi Valley ordinance was read, tbe reasons being as already printed. He placed special stress on tbat part of tbe ;ordinanoe relating to carrying freight. He anticipated a gresa misuse of the privilege. Mr. Volbracfat moved that the veto be sustained, as the company had another ordinance. Tbe motion was mule to include both ordinances and it carried. Four ladies were present in tbe interest of tbe "curfew ordinance" and out of deference to them tbe order of business was changed to take up tbat matter and cigaretta ordinance. Mr. Bowman read the resolution for a curfew ordinance and It was adopted unanimously. Mr. Bowman then read a resolution for an ordinance requiring a tax on cigarette dealers. This too was adopted unanimously. The ladies thanked the Council in tbe names of the fathers and mothers of Alton. AfUr tbe ladies retired the Mayor called over to Mr. Bowman, "You're a dandy." Mr. Davis, of the Finance committee, asked to be allowed to borrow •4,000 to pay current expenses. Carried. Tbe olll for the Eighth street tunnel was laid over, as it was not filed on tbe Thursday prior to council meeting. The Claims committee reported favorably on allowing O. J. Mcilenry tbcsnm of 940 on account of a cave-in at bis property. It was referred back t? tbe committee and counsellor with power to act. Mr. Wegener reported on a claim of M. H. Boals, which wa* referred back to tbe committee for further consideration. Tbe ordinance requiring union labor on olty printing was repealed, as tbe Union feared it was not legal. An ordinance was read for a sidewalk on Fourth street at Court square. The matter relating to tbe alley In block 1, Hunter's addition, was adjusted by the Big Four agreeing to move its track as requested by the property owners. Tbe matter bad to lay over as tbe petition read Indianapolis & 8t- Louis Railway Oo. Instead of Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis Railway Oo. The Misalssippl Valley Oo presented a new ordinance for a franahlsei could eaafly b« worked wltb ptek attd shore! and not of proper quality. Tbe bricks were good. The council should ascertain what official had been negligent. He moT«d the adoption of the report. Mr. Jfoonan moved tbat tbw mutter he referred to the Board of Public Improvements. Mr. Vonrg objected to this method ofproce?!- ing and thought It wa* bot conrtf *y to ! accept It. Mr. Noonan stated he did ! not wish to be diBcoorteon*, and asked for tbe petition from the property owners -"the fellown who have to go down in their jean*.' 1 Mr. Voting retorted tbat tbe report followed a re- qnest from "the fallows who have to go down In their jeans." Mr. Noonan stated he conld prove there WM malice way back of the first petition. Mr. Day wanted to mow if Mr. Ryan would state tbe work was well done? Mr. Day said the woik was poorly done and tbat the report wat correct as tbe committee had reported. Tbe report was adopted. A petition from property owners along tbe street stated tbat the work bad been dona to their satisfaction and according to contract so far a« they knew. About 82 per cent of the owners signed tbe petition. Tbe report was referred to Board of Public Improvements. Mr. Young: Tbat sand be removed from State street if expedient. Tbat city clerk notify D.

The Mayor stated tbat tbe day after tbe contract was Jet, he, Mr. Volbracbt and Mr. Ryan, went over the walk and decided on what should be done. He called on Mr. VoJbrecbt to substantiate It. Mr. Volbracbt stated be did not understand it tbat way. Mr. Ryan was called upon and sided with tbe Mayor. Mr. Young stated b'e had been told by Mr. Ryan tbat tbe Mayor ordered him to stop tbe work. Mr. Ryan denied this. He also said It was no use for him (Ryan) to try to work in Alton when ao many bad it in for him. He named Wegener as one of these, and Wegener got back in language ID wfatah there was ao lack of expletives. HeJ walked all over the Mayor; be trampled on Mr. Ryan, but "dot Skelley" was literally torn to pieces. Tbe Mayor rapped hardjof orftnr, bat-V/egener kept on, 'Finally be warned the Mayor to not break tbe desk or tbe oity would have to buy a new one, Mr, Wegener made charge upon charge and offered to prove any and all of them- Another resolution provided that tbe injunction suit against A. Wegener be dismissed. The Mayor stated tbe enit bad bean began at bis order. Also tbat Wegener had no lease. Mr. Wegener said he bad the right and bod given bond. Tbe Mayor decided tbe resolution out of order. Mr. Wegener got the floor and lambasted "dot Skelley" and tbe Mayor. He told bow be executed tbe bond; Mr Connor took tbe bond and put in tbe vault and that some "two legged rat" took it. Mr. Young appealed from the dechion of the chair, but the Mayor said be would not dismiss the suit in any event, The council unstained tbe appeal, but Messrs.

Taney decided that Congress had no more right to prevent a slave owner from taking his slaves into a free State or territory than to pre vent tbe owner of a horse taking i : there; that a elave was nut a human being, but a thing subject to the wll ol Us owner, and to be held by him al hii will apy where ip the United States. This infjnjoua {and |in human decision was turned down gays Senator Vest, by "a reign of shot and shell, carnage and death, lasting for more than four years.

Bat even if Tanej was technically right in regard to colonial popsessons, as Senator Yea »IJB of slavery beirg done away With "iu a reign of shot and shell carnage and death," so too Taney's theories as to colonial possessions have been overturned by a "reign o shot and shell, carnage nnd death," in a successful effort to overthrow nuoro cruel and damning bondage than was hnman flivery iu America —Spanieb rule in Cnbn, Porto Rico and the Philippines.
