fuimshed a clue to his bondsmen in this city

They not only attached tlio funds deposited
in the various banks of Cleveland , but also
served notice on the banks of London , where
the city cash taken from the Bank of Com .

Ivnu\U'Oii , Doc. 10. Senator Quay , ac
companied by Hon. John 0. Now , General
Williams and Colonel Button , drove out to
General Harrison's residence this morning.
After a half-hour's conversation Williams
and Britton concluded their call , leaving
Quay and New closeted with the president-
clert Mr. Quay was the general'1) guest tit
lunch Shortly after 2 o'clock the senator
leturned to his hotel nnd will leave for
Washington to-night.
Senator Quay would not bo intervioucd on
political matters. Tlio gentlemen who tie-
comjnnlcd the senator on his visit to Gen
eral Harrison say that there \\as nothing un
usual between them. It Is explained by ono
of the gentlemen comprising Senator Qmi's
tmrtv , that the litter's visit wits not
of such great political Importance as tlio
public had noen led to believe. Of course ,
they talked politics ; that Is Colonel Quay's
business. But the Idea that hocimohero
loaded with Important suggestions and state
secrets Is nil a mistake , n more newspaper
theory. There Is no doubt , continued the
speaker , but that Colonel Quay is very much
interested In seeing Pennsylvania reorga
nised. His endorsement of any man for n
cabinet position would have great weight ,
but Quay did not como hero with the Idei
that ho was to namon member of tlio cabinet.
Colonel Brltton , after his confoioiiLO with
tlio president-elect , said that General Harrison
risen had no suggestions to make regarding
the inaugural arrangements , and left thu
cntlro matter to the committee. Colonel
IJritton suites that the inauguinl
will surpass any previous o\cnt of the kind.
Ahe.idxjmnngemonls have been made for
the entertainment of about iTi.OO. ) ppoplo.who
will come in orgtini/ed bodies. This number
does not Include individuals , but simply mil
itary and civic organizations. There are
about 10,000 militia , and 15,000 or 10,000 in
civic organisations.
General Hari ison practically gave the en-
tlio day up to receiving visitors. No sooner
had lie concluded his talk with Senator Quay
after lunch than the Loyul Legion visitors
began to pour In upon him. About 3 o'clock
they began calling in squads upon the General -
oral and Mrs Ilairison , aud their spacious
parlors weio ciouded until nightfall.
Among the llrst to call upon Gcneinl Harrison
risen was nv-Presldcnt Hayes , accompanied
by Iiis sons , Webb and Hutherford. They
received a " .eiy hearty welcome fi-oin Gen
eral Harrison , and at his request the ox-
pi csident remained with him and received
tlio veterans for half an hour or so. Mrs.
McKce. assisted by Miss Miller , daughter of
W. II. H. Miller , served tea nnd coffee to the
gentlemen in the back pallor. There was
no speech-making and the reception was of a
most infoimal character. AtO o'clock the
visitois had neailv all departed to bo present
ut the meeting of the Loyal Legion at ( !
o'clock to paiti ( ipate in the organization of
the Indiana commatidory.

The dining hall was tastefully decorated

To his light sat ox President Hn * > cs , nnd to

being nn nddicss of welcome b.\ Major Gen
eral Low Wallace , delivered in his initnita
bio stvle. Following the mldtcss of welcome
the officer announced the toast , "The Loyal
Legion , " to which General Kuthcfford B.
Hn\cE , commnnder-ln-chlef , responded.
Mr 1 lilies , in beginning his mldiess , spoke
bi lolly of the history of the Loynl Legion ,
and roviuwcd the formation and history of
the Society of the Cincinnati , which ho said
was thu unquestioned piotot * , pe of the Lo.val
Legion. "What will bo the fututo of this
ordei I said he What will bo Its influence
on Its mcmbcis and our countrymen , and
especially upon the young who nro growing
U ] > to take our places ! It Is not and will not
bo a political orgnni/atiou. The Lo.\nl
Legion is nn essential organic expression
of our comradeship in u sacied war.
Our honoied companion who is so laigcly nt
this time and in this place in all our thoughts ,
in his tuise and emphatic way gave thu
whole pith ot the question. S lid General
Harrison : "Politics cannot break the bond
of comradeship " In this the general made
no mistake The links that unite us were
welded when we stood together as comrades
on hoi1 , giound lighting for eternal rights.
Where is the holy gioundj If anywhere , it
is w hero man fi eelv dies for his follow-men
That sublime pnvilogo was the ciown of
Lincoln's fame , and we of the Loial Legion ,
and our comrades of the Grand Army , can
revciently think God that we weio permitted
to stand by Lincoln in the deadly crisis of our
nation's history.
What shall be the teaching which thn
Loyal Legion shall give to the companions of
the order ) It goes without sniing that the
ideas we fought for are the principles of the
Lo al Legion. Those ideas nro without re-
gaid to sect or to party. Wo hold to our
faith. It Is that tno American republic , In
the language of the supionio court , is "an
indestructible union of indestructible states "
The general government was threatened by
the doctrine that the allegiance of thu citizen
was duo only to his state Our faith is that
a citron's allegiance is to the United States ,
nnd that the United States , in authority and
dutis , , in the fullest possible souse , a na
The contention of our advcisarios was that
sla\oiy was national , pcrpetu il and of divine
origin. Our faith is that no statute
and no constitution can make valid
"the false and fatal phantasy that man can
bold property in man. " The coiner stone of
the slave holding system was the impious
dogma that "Miqlit makes right. " The trail
of ibis serpent is ovoi all human society , and
is found where the footprint ot a slave was
never seen.
The faith of the Loyal Legion Is that uni
versal suffrage is essential to liberty , and
that there can bo no lilting exorcise and no
full enjoyment of the right of suffrage with
out universal education. The weaker nations
around us with whom wo deal the Indians ,
the children of misfoituno , of poverty , of
evil habittiand of ciimo , who aio at all our
doois tbo taith wo learn in school of war
with respect to ttiem all , is that they are the
offspring of our common father , nnd
that social distinction , wealth , learning ,
and other nch antagos outside of character
were of little avail In that bloody trial , and
that cvcii Uniitr tlicic deferred to manhood ,
Thcicfore we would inculcate sympathy
with manhood , and rcspoct for manhood ,
wherever it is found. Above nil , our faith
is in Ameiica and American principles. Wo
ha\o no quarrels w ith Cuiopo or any foreign
people , but wo piofor that their notions ,
lollies , vices and perils should remain on the
other bide of the Atlantic. We have enough
vices , follies and perils of our own.Vo \
impoitfrom IZuiope altogether too many.
Wo believe in the American homo , and m
the character and virtue of American
women , which make American homes happy.
When the great trial came , and
calamity was to be met and
saciilices made , Mr. Lincoln could say :
"If nil that has been said by orators
and pools since the creation of the
world in praise of women v.-eio applied to
the women of America , It would not do them
justice for their conduct during the war. "
God bless the women of America
Finally , one of the mi&takes of the rebel
lion was to unduly exalt what they called
the "sovereign states. " They thought each
state should have its own Hag. litcli would of
lepicsent a bcpirato government , and all of
them would wave helplessly and mlsoiably
over "states discoidnnt , dissevered , nnd
belligerent. " The faith of the Loyal Legion
is the rovers , of all this Wo ticlluvo that the
whole of the Amci ican republic eveiy state ,
and evci.v acre in everyst.ito belongs to one
lliU , the old Hag , the stars and stripes , the to
Hag of Washington und Lincoln , the Hag of
the United Stitcs. It represents a people
gicat , piospcronsand happy , whoso heritage tim
will be , as long as the.aio . guaidcd by wis titl
dom and justice , thu enjoyment of unbiokon tl
haimony and pcipotual peace. } lre |

There was another meeting ot the city
charter committee yestoiday afternoon , and
there was another absence of the city coun
cil. Not a single councilman was on hand to
note what the citizens of Omaha required ,
nnd the questions wore left to the citizens
themselves J. S Winspoaio was the first
cltiron heard from , nnd ho wan toil to know
who should bo charged with tlio cost of
oiHMilng up streets or nllcis in his opinion
the question of raising funds for the purpose
was not made sufficiently explicit and ho
thought that those who received the benefits
derived from such openings should bo as-
scssed accordingly. Mr. Furay thought the
question ns to who should settle for It could
bo left to the council as n bonul of equaliza
tion , and if that was not satisfactory to the
persons assessed , they had redress in an ap
peal to the district court. The matter wiw
left over.
Then the labor question , ns embodied In
section 113 of tlio present thai tor , was tniten
up. Mr. Andrew Hosowator pointed out
that under the section there was no
mandatory specifications ns to who
should construct the city sewers , and th it In
the case of sowciago construction the ilnj
labor svstcm had equal rights with that of
contracting. If the labor clement would only
present their claims Mr. Purnpioved that
the property owncis who were compelled to
pay lor the work done , had nt least the right
to say how it should bo done that is ,
whether by the contract or tiny labor system
temnnd ho tnouEht section ll' quite cov
ered the ground. Mr Over-ill thought the
section ga\o no disciotionar.powotstotho
board of public works , as lo biting of men ,
nnd the purchase of material. He accord
ingly introduced the following , as an amend
ment to the present clause : "
That w henover it shall appear to the satis
faction of the mayor and council that nn\
improvement mentioned in this bcction can
bo done by day work with the same proteo-
t'on to the ta\paieis as by contract , the
major and council may order it so clone
under the direction unit supervision of tlio
board of public works , and said boaul of
public works is hereby aiithoiizcd to hiie
men and to appoint oveiscurs of bald work ,
and lo make lulus and i emulations for the
government of thesauri * ; also to make con
Irncts for material and to purchase the same
in keeping with the .spirit of this section.
Mr. McArdlo objected on the giound that
all woallh was produced bi labor , und that
the man who ouneil nn piopctly was tlio one
who paid all the taxes. Ho offered ivs an
amendment to the amendment , that a portion
of the clause bo stiickon out , and that the
follnwiii- insetted : "Tho work slull be
done ub directed bi ordinance of the mayor
and citi council , undei thu supervision und
dil action of the board of public wet Its " This
was lost by a vote of 0 to 4 , and the former
question cart ted , as n compromise with the
labor element. The amendment , ns above , is
to bo the lirst proviso to section liy , as it now
Building Inspector Whitlock was allowed
to speak on a section No. 107 previously
liaised on by the committee , but as ho hid
nothing dclinilo to state , was given until this
afternoon to put his vioxvs in wilting. Ho
wanted the ordinance referring to buildings
made a legislative act , but got bcwildeied
when asked the why und wherefore.
Section 111 , referring to the acceptance
of public works by the city , from the
contractors , was loft to Messrs Andruw
Itosowatorund Council to revise.
Section 115 , iclutlug to street sprinkling ,
was next taken up , and it was amended so as
to include stieet sv\ccpmg and cleaning It
was left optional as to whether it should bo
enlorrcd in any preset Ibed distnct , or loft to
tbs petitions of the property owners bcno-
llttoil , and whether it should bo done by the
city or bv contiact , but was finally loft to
Messrs Cotiiioll nnd Grant to icport upon.
It was generally intitnitud that the section
needed icvision , as in its present foini it left
n great deal of room for fraud.
Section 110 , referring to the opening nnd
grading of streets , was dibcussed at lengthen
on one point only. Mr. Fnray thought that
thu assessments for damages incui roil by
giading , etc , should uo mot by n Icvi on the
beneiitdomed by the adjoining piopeity.
Ho thought the section as proposed in the
charter of 186f > , by the committee of fifteen ,
was sufficient to cover the ground nnd pro-
feiablo lo the picsent one. Mr.
Uobowator thought that an undue
use of the powers granted might
at some future time prevent the opening up
of thoroughfares necessary to the welfare of
the general public , and cited tlio eleventh
and Sixteenth stieot viaducts , which might
never have been built if the question was
loft to those interested In thu immediate
vicinity. There was a possibility of u small
number of piopeity owucts stopping a work
that would bo of general importance to the 0
city. The section was icfoircd to Council .
and Hoicwater .is a committee , as was No.
117 , which was practically the same. l
Section US related to the appiopiiation of
lands for city purpo ° ea , and was made to in
clude "parks and boulovuids. "
Section 110 brought up the question of who
was assessable for damages where property
was damaged by public iinprovcuicnts , and
it was lofeircd to Mr. Fin ay. Sections 1"2 i
to 121 , relating to city ordinances , wcro an
pro\od , but 1'5 was loft to Mr. Charles
lirown. It stipulates that no debts shall
bo IiiLMirrcd by the city council , nor any
money expended for improvements , unless
authorized by a "majority ot the cntlro
council upon the call for yeas und nays , and
thu reuoid ot the council proceedings shall
show how each member voted , and any
councilman voting to incur any liability , or
to create any debt in excess of the amount : >
limited or autliori/od by law , 01 if the minor
shall appiove any ordinance or conttaut in .
volving tlio ex | > cndltiiio of money In excess
the amount limited or authori/ed by lav/ ,
Bucholllcer shall thcicb * , lender his buiids-
mon liable for such unlawful excess. " The sl
opinion of the board seemo I to bo that the
present city cou.iul had altogether foi gotten
that Midi an oidiiinncc wai in existence.
DOn motion of ( ! . M. Nattingor , section 120
was amended so ns to rcquim thu city cloi k
pirn Ido a bond of $ .5,000 to gu irantee u
faithful poi fornianco of his duties. in
Section 12.1 lofeued to c-iti piinting , and

newflpiper , out Mr. McAidlo thought that
the : piintingand mlveiUsing could bo done
ust as well by "day woik , " and butter

linercntly , however , and the question tvbi
