Tho queition of tho city printinc
came up and the followiue resoln
tion was introduced by Councilman
Galley : Resrlvcd that the city clerk
b-a instructed to solicit bids for the
citv priming for the ensuing year."
The motion was lost, councilmeuGrei
scn, Dietrich and Zinnecker voting
ngainst it, Galley and Gray voting
for it. CouuciimanGreisen then intro
duced the following resolution for the
Columbus Telegram :" Kesolved by the
Mavor and the City Council that the
Columbus Telegram bo and is hereby
'eclared tno official paper of said city
fur the cii'-uidg yar and that all mat
terc nqiiiring publication bo inserted
in" said paper at a compensation equ

bv statute and that all other supplies
ami stationery be furnished said city
by ihe C.dumbus Telegram at custo
mary and prevailing prices therefor."
mi:ks iim;ci:tic coi'xcilmkn"
This resolution brought Councilman
Galley to his feet in an instant, who
said :" Gentlemen I am opposed to this
rofoJution. I don't believe the voters of
Columbus elect councilmen to servo
any pAriicular newspaper or party or
fuc: itn but to servo the wholo people.
1 don't see whv wo should favor one
mwi.apfr over others equally good
imv more than we should spend the
eity'r monev in other hues for partv
rer.-ens. Th're are other papers in
ColumLn-' that iiave as good a circu-late-n
a the Telegram perhaps and
that could do tho city's printing just
a-; well. They are entitled to fair play
at our hand.-. 1 have nothing against
ih Telegram. If it can give the city
letter service for less money than any
other paper 1 will vote for the Tele
gram as quickly as auv of you gentle
men." Then looking straight at the
three councilmen who had voted down
hi isolation. 3r. Galley continued:
"Gentiemena, I am surprised that you
would v.-jto to do tho city's business
on lines that you would not for one
nio:n;t consider in your own
priva'o business la all iny
years service as i ouncilman I have
opposed i he "spoils' system in city
ailair-. And in view of the importanco
of the principle at stake, I believe
that we ought at least to have a full
council present when this matter is
settled. Air. Clark is attending his
mother's funeial in Indiana. Wo ought
to give him an opportunity to vote on
this question. I therefore move that
this resolution be laid on the table un
til his return." Unt this was not ac
cording to program, and Mr. Galloy's
resolution was voted down in "one,
two, three" order and the resolution
offeied by Councilman Greisen was
adopted, with no attempt to answer
Mr. Callev's argument.
The council adjourned till next
The council met in adjourned session
lat night, wirh Councilmen Clark and
Dietrichs absent. The only business
transacted was to approve tho liquor
dealers' Louds and to rescind the action
of last Friday night in the matter of
the city printing.
The democratic exponents of snap
judgaie-nl were treated to a dose of
Homeopathy. They didn't like their
own medicine but tho directions said
tr he it. The surprise was painful and
After !Lr ether business was dispos
ed cf. Councilman Gray offered the
Kesolveit, that the action of this
council on the resolution naming the
Columbus Telegram as- the official
paper of this city be rescinded.and
that the city clerk be instructed to so
licit bids for the city printing as well
as all supplies necessary for the fiscal
year beginning May 2 J WW, and that
the contract be let to the lowest bid
der. Councilman Greisen immediately
moved that the resolution be laid over
until nert meeting. Greisen and
Zinnecker voted to lay ove r.and Gal
ley, Gray and Mayor voted against it.
Mr. Gray then moved the adoption
of the resolution as read, and Mr.
Galley seconded the motion. Oa roll
call the clerk announced that Galley
and Gray had voted aye, and Greisen
and Zmuecker no. Mr. Greisen in
sisted that he had not voted at all
and did net want to vote, but Clerk
Becker had so understood and record
ed the vote. The mayor accordingly
voted aye and the resolution was pass
ed. Immediately after the vote Council
man Zinnecker reached for his hat and
coat and left for parts unknown. The
mayor presently noticed that there
was not a quoram preaeat and instruct
ed the chief of police to look for the
absent member. However, the search
was unarailing and the comncil ad
journed to meet April 21.
J. H. Galley the Lucky Kan.
The council met laat evening to can
vass the rote on city officials.
The election board in the Second
wyird certified to the council that J.
H. Galley and S. J. Ryan had receiv
ed the same number of votes for coun
cilman from that ward. Tbo council
proceeded to draw lotg to determine
who 6houlrt be declared elected, and
Mr. Galley's name came oat of the
hat first, and he was declared elected.
Afterwards, however, Wm. O'Brien,
who was one of the Second ward
judges of election, looked p the stat
utes and announced that the action of
the council was not legal, since the
law requires that in case of a tie the
judgs of election shall determine by
lot who is to be declared elected.
Here is where the matter rests at
present. Opinion seems to be uivided
as to the case, democrats thinking
that Mr. Kyan should have another
chance at it by another drawing,
while republicans believe that as long
as the drawing was fair and Mr.
Galley won. he i entitled to the place,
and that since the election board dis
solved witbont performing its office
of drawing lots, it cannot reassemble
to do it now and the action of the
council should stand.
Oity Attorney Cornelius is of the
opinion that since the boarJ did not
decide the matter and referred it to
the council who did decide it, either
the decision of the council must stand
or there was no election. In either
case of course Mr. Galley would hold
Mr. Kyan himself is noc one of the
democrats who are demanding that
he be given another chance. He says
the game was fair and he lost, and he
is willing to stand by the result, even
though there might be a technical
ground for knocking it out. Mr.
(alley says he is not concerned as to
how it is settled.
It has not yet developed just what
action the democratic managers will

4 A Journal reporter, curious to 6ee
what Mr. Chenoweth and his asisstants
in the Grays' dry good department
had done behind closed doors yester
day, decided to go in early this morn

in tho situation unmolested. And at
K :3Q this morning he did succeed in

front part of tho store and finding
a space in the back part of the store

into the dazzling intermixture of col

evidence on every piece of merchandise
in the immense stock. But the trouble
came when this Journal reporter at

erey aisle and avenue and they
were all 60 eager in reading the tags
and examining goods that tbey appar
ently did not observe the man trying
to wedge his way through to the door.
And when he finally did escape he
carried no distinct impressions with
him, nothing but the impression of
thousands of little yellow tags and
crowds of nhoving ladies. When a

Tho small audience that a-rmihled
at the North last night to see John
Griffith's Macbeth enjoyed a rare
treat, especially those who like trag
edy. JohuGril'irh asYaebrih was superb.
And his acting wa aimoH if not fully
equaled bv that of .Mis Louise Ripley
as Lady MacLetli and Edward Sulli
van as MacdutV.
Tho character of Macbeth, th" am
bitious thano who gave ear to tho
three witches prophesy that one day
he would be king, but who had tno
mnch of the milk of human kindness
in his heart to carry cut his ambition
without some external stimulus, and
whose conscience drove him mad after
he bad brought abont tho murder of
Duncan and Bautiuo, was most beaut
ifully interpreted by John Griffith.
No less jwirfect was Miss Ripley's
interpretation ot Lady Macbeth.
Students of Shakesepeare differ as to
whether Lady Macbeth was prompted
to goad her husband on lo murder by
a wicked ambition to bemme queen
or by an all-consuming luve for Her
husband, which made ner husband's
ambition her own and drove her un
consciouslv to do the thing that her
woman's quicker discernment told her
would strengthen his fr.It"rinr dis
position. Miss Ripley evidectlv takes
the ' wicked" Laly Macbeth view,
and her interpretation was cousisten'
Edward Sullivan s :ntcr:rorntio:i of
Macduff's condut t when tho news
reached him that his w:fe and two
children had been murdered was per
haps the most appealing bit of acting
of tho evening.
The witch scenes wers made beauti
fully weird by ingenica3 lighting de
vices, and the scenes were changed
with such rapidiy that there was no
opportunity during the whole perform
ance to lose intere.-t.
If John Griffith returns to Cr.lnm
bup, the friends he made lat night
will crowd the house for him.
