The report was adopted.
Theeounell then went Into commute of the
vholu with Alderman Leo In the chair.
At this point the wine room oi-dlnancfl was
cpirted on by the special committee to
vhoin It was refei red. The committee
tated tli it uhiln the oiiginai oidlnance did
lot lonlhct with the municipal law or the
peeltli atlons of the charter , It did conflut
vlth the state law.
Aldi-nmin Pord raised his voice In opposl-
ion He stated that the ordinante was of a
enor that foreshadowed a nonsensual issue
le was of the opinion that it would bo ap-
illed to ceitnln elements , as regaids Its
snfni content , wluh ; the very institutions
hat should bo looked after would escape
Alderman Alex \nder staled that the onli-
lance was drafted for the purpose of pio-
ectlng society against a | > ractice that was
extremely lamentable. Ho felt , ho said , as
hough sumo steps should bo taken to pru-
cnt the public from the invasion of this
great oul. In conclusion ho s\id it was not
m account of the disorder that was given
ill th in Mich places , but the infamous crimes
hat w ere. pel petroled on the irentlcr se\
hat were lured into such dens of vice Al-
durman Hasealliuwcd thu matter as being
i compound of non onso and poor Judgment ,
le could not , ho stated , conscientiously sup-
iort such an ordinance that reached out in
> oiindless space , and failed to cover a single
ssuu from n definite standpoint. Ho hold
1ml the ordinance as diafted came in direct
eonllictlon with the Slocnni law poi taming to
hu retailing of liquor and prescribing the
abuse of the same.
Tiie committee of the whole rose nnd re
Mined back that thu oidinance as drafted by
Mdennan Hascall , icgulating wine rooms , bo
tassed.aml that the oidinamo by Alcxundor ,
> f a similar tenor , bo not passed.
Aldeiman Alexander stated that ho was
of the opinion that the Hascall ordinance
vns valueless when the aims were taken
nto consideration He insisted that it was a
larrieado between pi election to society
ind the suppression ot vice and thu punish
Citv Altai nov Webster was then con
sulted on the weight and stiengthof the or-
llnance and he st'ited that he was of the

lofmu any court of Justice.
Alderman Alexander moved that the mat
er Ixi refeiicd to the city attoiney with In-
slim-turns to draft a substitute , but the melon -
lon was lost.
The ordinance then as drafted bv Hascall
vas placed upon its passage and was voted
lown by n vote of ' . to 2 , the major poition

There will bo a meeting of the Western

to ascertain us nearly us possible the cities

Inasmuch as there is no possible show for
Chicago in this circuit another jcnr , it is
somewhat of a mystery why the associa
tion should bo compelled to meet
in that city to discuss their plans
for another season. It would have
been far inoro appropriate to huvo called
such a meeting for Omaha , or unv ono of the

The senate then resumed consideration of
the tunft bill , nnd was addicssed by Mr.
Hiscock. It was proper , he said , lo criticise
the recent attempt of the president and of
his party lo explain away and lo misrepie-
senl llio effect and pin pose ot the Mills bill ,
which they claimed to bo calculated to bone-
lit rather than to injure American labor
and capital. The issue was fairly drawn
between the two parties. The question was
fteo IraOo or pioteclion lo American labor.
Neither subterfuge nor new confessions of
faith would conceal or obscme thuaie.il ques
lion. Demociatii : oiators were attempting in
the manufacliiiing districts to shift their
ground and to conceal the put poses of then-
party. Hut thu otllcial utteianees of the
president and the reports of the secietury of
the Ircasury , omphnsi/ed by Iho Mills bill ,
which hud been endorsed by Iho national
democratic convention , and which passed
the house by a striet party votu , loft no dnubt
whatever ntt to the truu position of thu demo
cratic purl ) on that question. The senate
bill left no duubt ns lo Ihe position of Ihe re
publican party. Hoth parties conceded that
there should bo a reduction of the revenue ,
nnd to about the same amount. Thcrutoru
thu qucstioti of amount of taxation was not
involved in the dlscussiun , bul the question
was as to Iho inunner in which Iho reduction
should bo made. He had examined some of
the details ot Iho Mills bill In ordur to prove
that in the piefurrcd leduction Ihoro weru
disciiminalions in favor of Iho indnstiies of
the eonfcdomlo states against the industries
of thu not thci n stales.
Mr. Hawley suggested ns an explanation

of the house ways nnd means committee ,
which made up the Mills bill , six were from
thu confederate slates and two from the
Mr. Hiscock proceeded lo llluslralo his
poml \ \ lib further instances drawn from the
Mills bill , and intimated Hint the minority of
the senate i omniilU-o on Hnanco wcro acting
on thu same policy. The effect of the Mills
bill , Mr. Hiscock dccl.itoil. could nol bo dis
guised. The senalu bill was equally pro
nounced in characler and principle. It fairly
illuslrated the republican policy of protec
tion , and when its provisions became a law
it would defend the American tnurkel against
foreign competition. It was not sectional.
Industi les noi th , south , east tind wesl were
equally provided for in il. H was Ihoopposilo
of Iho Mills bill. The dcmociacy had Icn-
deied Iho issno and evoiy effoit should bo
made lo meet it fairly.
At the close of Mr Hiscock's remarks Mr.
Halo obtained the Iloor and the tariff bill
went over till to-morrow.
Mr. Kdmunds appealed to Mr. Horry to
withdraw his objctlion to a coiihideralion of
Iho bill for Iho benulll of Iho widow of Chief
Mr. Herry ( inclined In withdraw his objec
tion , staling that thai would bo equivalenl lo
a consent lo Iho passage of Ihu bill , which hu
considered llioroughly bad.
Mr. Kdmnmls thereupon gave notice that
ho would to morrow morning move to lake
up Iho bill for consideration.
