The features of A riot were quite In evidence and it was only the timely arrival of police that ended a bad mix-up. "Smoky" Williams, a colored man, attended the dance and seems to have been the disturbing element. Jim Hutchlnson was there, too, and he was another element. The two elements seem to have become tanlged up in an effort of one to eat up the other and in tie end "Smoky" had his "light" almost extinguished. Some one bit him over the head with a chair and barely escaped knocking out his eye. Hutch- lnson was arrested for disturbing the peace and was tried this morning. Go to M.

A special meeting of the City Council has been called for tomorrow evening to further the investigation of Fifth and Ridge street paving, begun by a committee of seven Aldermen one month ago. The seven Aldermen representing twelve out of fourteen members of the Council reported that the paving had not been done according to contract. Their report was followed last week by one made by an engineer hired by the Mayor. Now the members of the Council are up in arms and declare they will have the whole affair aired. They propose to provide tomorrow for ths appointment of an Investigating board to consist of competent oicy engineers from the principal cities of the State. Th«se engineers will be employed to make a report, after a thorough investigation. The opeoial meeting will be an Investigating meeting.

There is much talk about the Fifth street paving contract which has juet been accepted by tho Board of Public Works, composed of the Mayor and his two appointees, Engineer Swift and Street Commissioner Schuelle On tbe one hand it is assert ed tha the work was not done according to contract, but was "Bltmmed" in orde that the contractor should not drop a large sum of money, as bis bid would not cover the cost of material, with out considering the cost of labor i putting down the paving. The con tractor, the Board of Public Work and others contend that the paving all right, and up to the specification in the contract. At the November meeting of ciunci a committee composed of seven aldermen, three named by the Mayor and four by the council, were appointed to investigate complaints lodged in the council that the work was poorly done, in that the concrete which should have been six inches in depth, was much loss, and that the concrete was of the poorest quality— indeed was not concrete at all. The ommittee of aldermen took with them picks and shovels with which to break into the concrete. They reported to the council at its December meeting that they opened ttve places in tie street; that they found the concrete to be sand and stone with almost no cement in it, Tney said they had no need for picks, an ordinary shovel was all that was necessary. The "concrete" could be shoveled out as easily as ordinary Me Adam mixed with sand could be shoveled. One alderman said he could nave lifted the "concrete" out of its bed with his fingere. The committee reported that instead of being six inches in depth, the "concrete" averaged in the five places opened, only 3'i inches in depth. Tho committee's report censured the officials whose duty it was to see that the paving was laid according to contract for failing to do so. This report of the committee of seven was adopted by the council by a vote of 12 to 2. Last week the Mayor hired Mr. George Dickson, ex City Engineer, to investigate the work. Mr. Dickeon reported to the Mayor in substance that he found the entire work all right and up to the requirements of the contract Upou this report . .f Mr Dioksoii's, the Ma> or and his two appointees, Schuelle and Swift comprising tne Board of Public Works, accepted the paving from the contractor, and have ordered that bonds be issued for the work.

M. sew Third Street eiothier. concrete IB, siiy that the work ou Fifth street is very poor, tne poorest job they ever saw in Alton. "That the city is being robbed," for say they, "next spring or summer when the paving sinks down, because ' it is built on sand and loose stonea, the city treasury will be called upon.instead of the property holders on Fifth atreet.'o raise the paving." Others say that in accepting the paving without considering the council's protoBt and condemnation, the Board of Public Works, consisting of the Mayor, City Engineer and Street Commissioner, practically snubbed twelve out of fourteen aldermen. That the board's action was based on the judgment of ono man, Mr. Dickson, and tbe couucil'aoii seven men, and that the latter surely should receive courteous consideration. Critics say that it looks very much as if the Board of Public Works Intended to snub the council, and favor the contractor. These are the charges that are being bandied [about on our streets. The council should now iiielat on an impartial Invontlgalion by men out* side tue council, in the interest of honesty and fairuesa, in the Interest of the city, in the iutotwt of the contractor.
