carried a tiny cane and in his manly
bosom rested a beautiful pup of the

folds of his great coat. The little "dar

Alderman Hurt from the Ordinance Com-
mittee, 8ubmit:ed a communication from the
City Attorney, giving it as his opinion that
the penalty clause in the ordinance against
de'inq jent tax-paayers, was legal and could
Alderman Hurt reported on the ordinance
relative to the collection of taxes, and thought
that the city was somewhat to blame for the
non-collection of the same, since it had not
levied upon personal property, as it had the
right to do, in order to make the money due
by tax-payers. He recommended the passage
of the ordinances.
Alderman Runge referred in a few remarks
to the obligations of the city to persons who
had responded to the requests of the city for
moapy. and thought that all the favors the
city had to confer should be given to those
who discharged most promptly their public
Alderman Richards thought that no taxes
could ever be collected if compulsory measures
Alderman Hickey favored the passage of
the ordinance removing the penally for non-
payment of taxes, and thought that if the
penalty wa«i taken off that taxes would come
in daily. He believed that the old ordinance
was in conflict with the constitution and laws
of the State.
Alderman Richards replied, saying that
many delinquent tax payers were wailing for
the penalty to be taken off before paying their
taxes, while prompt men were bearing the
expenses of tne municipal government.
Alderman Collins said that he was the one
who introduced the ordinance, and did so be-
cause there was a necessity as well as the
penalty that kept men from paving their
taxes. He thought if the penalty was re-
moved that many persons now in arrears
would come forward and pay their taxes.
Alderman Runge thought that penalties for
non performance of a public duty were recog
nized as legal, and he found a law that had
for an object the compulsion of men in dis-
charge of those duties. He thought if the
penalty was removed about $30,000 could be
collected in the next thirty days. He asserted
that a review of the records would show that
thos 3 in arrears now constituted a greater
part of the delinquents of former years.
Alderman Hickey argued at length that the
penalty clause was illegal and gave the opin-
ion announced by Judge Ballinger as the
foundation of his conviction
Alderman Hu t thought that taxes cov.ld be
collected by distraint, but did not thiak under
tbe charter that penalties w*re legal. He
said the times were bard, and that he would
favor any measure that wauid enable the tax-
payers to liquidate their taxes without im-
pairing the claims of the c ity to them
The clerk read the ordinance No. 47, and
which provides for removing the penalty of 1
per cent per momh for non-payment of taxes
after the same are due.
Alderman Mitchell, section 96 of article 9
of the charter which provides that the col-
lect r shall proceed to collect taxes by dis-
traint and sale or property after the same
are due and payable. He did not think under
the provision he read that the penalty was

to discontinue the gas on the east and south
fronts of the Tremont Hotel.
Alderman HicKey opposed the resolution.
Alderman Mitchell said that he offered the
res lution in the interest of retrenchment and
economy. He thought that the city had done
too much for Burnett & Kilpatnck, who had
squeezfd the life blood out of the working-
men of this city in order to build that hotel.

livery stable in the event of a fire.
A communicatioa from the chairman of the
Fire Committee asking instructions as to the

less horses in the Fire Department.
Alderman Mitchel moved that they be sold.
The clerk read the budget of appropriation
for the ensuing year and the estimated
amount of revenue to be derived by the city.
The income of the city was fixed approxi-
mately at $304,591 05. The expenses of the
city at $304,124 62. J ^ _
Alderman Hickey moved that the omcis of
City Assessor and Collector be merged. De-
cla» ed eut of order.
Alderman Hurt objected to the provisions
of the budget in so far as it contemplated a
general levy to pay for special improvements,
as he did to other estimates made for the rea-
son that they were excessive.
Alderman Runge replied, arguing that the
estimates were made In conformity with the
provisions of the ordinances and the charter,
and that he had endeavored to adjust them to
the amount of taxes to be received by the
city. He explained at length the icems set
forth in the budget, and gave hi* reasons for
rery estimate set down in the budget.
[This budget will be published in full, for
the benefit of all persons concerned.]
Alderman Mitchell moved to amend the
estimate contained in the budget, so as to
allow laborers $2 per day, to take efrect from
MAiderman Hickey thought that the laborer
was worthy of his hire, and favored the
amendment. ^ ^.. Q. ,
Alderman Runge thought that if $1 per day
was tbe price of labor the city should not pay
more He was advised by the chairman of
the Street and Alleys Committee that such
was the rate paid by private individuals, and
he did not think the city government was
called on to pay more than the market price
for anything it obtained.
Question on the amendment put and car-
Alderman Ziegler asked that $20 0 be appro-
priated to the erection of a market in the
western part of 1 he city.
Alderman Mitchell opposed the erection of
the market in question, and said lhat all at-

tion had failed.
The report as a whole was, on motion of
A'derman Richards, adopted.

to be Tendered Gov. Hubbard.
The spacious hall of Lee Fire Com-
pany No. 3, on Postoffice, near Tre-
mont street, was filled to its fullest ca-
pacity last evening, the occasion of the
gathering beins; nothing less than the
selection of a chief engineer and
three assistants of the Galveston Fire
Department to serve for the ensuing
year. The chief contest was for the
chieftainship of the department, but as
the matter had been thoroughly can-
vassed prior to last night, and as most
of the companies ha£ sent their officers
to the meeting with instructions how to
vote, the result did not appear to create
CALLED TO ORDER.
The meeting was brought to order by
M. A. Davey, chief engineer, who
stated the object for which it was call-
ed. Mr. J. F. McCormick, of Hook
and Ladder No. 1, was elected perma-
nent president, and Mr. C. G. Clifford,
of Lee No. 5, secretary. A recess of
fifteen minutes was then had for the
purpose of giving absent delegates an
opportunity to put in an appearance,
when the meeting was called to order,
and the calling of the roll disclosed the
C. C. Sweeney, foreman, and John
Hibbs, first assistant, Bteamer No. 1; J.
F. McCormick, foreman, Thos. Dir-
meyer first, and Robert Jockusch, se-
cond assistant Hook and Ladder No. 1;

Nick Martin, second assistant of
steamer No. 1, and Martin Casey, first
assistant of Hook and Ladder No. 2,
were unavoidably absent, but, by a
motion made, the foremen of their re-
spective companies were authorize! to
cast their ballots.
THE ELECTION OP CIHEF.
The proper time having arrived, the
chairman stated that nominations for
chief engineer would be in order. Mr.
Dave Jordan nominated John H. Wes-
terlage, and Mr. Louis Psayla nomi-
nated Martin A. Davey. M. M. Jor-
dan, of No. 6, and L. N. Rich were
appointed tellers, and the first ballot
resulted as follows:
Mr. Westerlage having received a ma-
jority of the votes cast, was declared
clared elected chief engineer.
For first assistant, Messrs. C. G. Clif-
ford of steamer 5, Charles Koester of
Steamer 3, and James Meeley, of steam-
er 1, were put in nomination, and bal-
loted for with the following result :
Mr. Clifford having received a ma-
jority of the votes cast, was declared
elected first assistant.
For second assistant engineer Jerry
Flynn, of Protection No. 8, James
Griffin, of Steamer No. 1, and Frank
Gardoni, of Hook and Ladder No. 2,
were put in nomination. The first bal-
lot failed in a choice, none of the can-
didates receiving a majority. Gar-
doni's name was then dropped and a
second ballot had, which resulted in the
selection of Flynn by the following
Nominations for third assistant were
then declared in order, and Mr. C. V.
LeClere was put before the meeting.
No other nominations being made, this
gentleman was elected by acclamation.
(And after the meeting did the " correct
thing " by " the boys.")
A MERITED COMPLIMENT.
The following resolution was then
offered, and passed without a dissent-
Betolctd, That we hereby sincerely congrat-
ulate *ur brother fireman. James Johnson,
late foreman of Washington Steam Fire Co.,
No. 1, upon his recent appointment as branch
Eilot, and to seize the same moment to assure
is Excellency Gov. R B. Hubb ird, that we
warmly thank him for the motives th*t
prompted him to the selection of one of our
beloved comrades to so important a place.
We feel confident that the trust is well re-
posed, for we know his courage, his energy,
and, withal, his knowledge of tbe duties of his
new position, will always commend him to
those in au'hority and eito t the commenda-
tion of, "Well done, thou good and faithful
Mr. Dave Jordan moved that a com-
mittee of three be appointed to draft a
vote of thanks to the governor. The
chair appointed C. G. Clifford of No. 5,
C. C. Sweeney of No. 1, and M. M. Jor-
dan of No. 6.
On motion the meeting adjourned
Tremont Opera Honae.
Mrs. Oates was greeted with a fine
house last night. The audience, while
not an ovation in numbers, was very
flattering in its fashionable and critical
elements. The beautiful opera, Girofle
Girofla, with its charming choruses,
and lively, sparkling dialogues, was
presented and commanded <Hose atten-
tion. Mrs. Oates, who is no stranger
here, and may be classed as a favor-
ite with our people in her peculiar
adaptation to comic opera, for which
she has done so much, evinced
tbe same cheerful, dashing and
sparkliDg spirit for which she is
already noted, and uniting with this a
flexible and musical voice, drew loud
and unrestrained applause—a compli-
ment of which she was worthy. In
adding to her company Bew voices the
public, doubtless, will join in congratu-
lating her in the selection of Miss Jen-
nie Winston. This lady, in Pedro,
won her way easily into the hearts of
lovers of music. It is not too much to
say that she fairly divided the honors
of the evening with the prima donna.
Of the new voices, Mr. Hall, who per-
sonated Mourzourk admirably, is an
excellent acquisition, and mush
pleasure is anticipated at the prospect
of hearing more from him. The even,
sweet tenor of Henri Laurent (Maras-
quln) was welcomed heartily, waile the
acting of Bolero (Harry Allen) was a
specially worthy and attractive feature
in the splendid performance. The
choruses were well rendered, with a
company of good strength, and the
gems of song in the opera, too well
known to be specified, are pleas-
ant remembrances. The costuming
of the company, always handsome
and very appropriate, has, if
possible, been improved on since
last season. But one more chance will
be afforded to hear Girofle-Girofla, at
matinee next Wednesday, and this fact
is mentioned as a suggestion that those
who were not present last night should
avail themselves of an opportunity to
be entertained by a fine rendition of a
very popular opera.
To-night Mrs. Oates will appear in
her admirable role of Clariette, in La
Fille de Madamo Angot. By many
tbis is regarded as the opera best
adapted to the talents of the prima
Very Rev. Father Ghambodot'a
Lecture on that Subject.
At the cathedral on Sunday night
Very R6V. Father Chambodut delivered
a lecture on hell, which was listened to
attentively by a large crowd who had
assembled to hear him. He read the
forty-eighth psalm, and said that he
read it simply and solely to refute a
statement that had been made to him
that no where in the Old Bible did the
word hell appear. In that short psalm
it occurs three times. The reverend
speaker then said:
Henry Ward Beecher has proclaimed
that there is no hell. He has denounced
in tones of burning eloquence the doc-
trine of its existence as the " most hor-
rible nightmare of theology," and the
press has caught up the strains of his
utterances and echoed all over this wide
land his abolition of an institution
which the Bible says burns with fires
that can never be quenched. Mr.
Beecher's blasphemous assertions do
not surprise me, but because he has as-
sailed the convictions of ages and de
nied the everlasting fire, lo, men begin
to breathe freer and to advance with
bolder tread to the accomplishment of
their own ruin. How sad! And who,
I pray, is Henry Ward Baecher? Not
half a decade of years have passed since
the sweep of civilization rang with the
fame of his lusts which he vainly en-
deavored to temper to the virtuous
minds of the world by describing the
condition of his true inward
ness, while he was hanging like
a doomed victim upon the rag_
edge of despair. The exposures of his
so-called moral life during the scandal
trial, and the publicity given to them
by the press of this country and of Eu
rope, have proved stepping stones to
ruin over which men and women by
the hundreds and thousands have
reached the depths of shame and dis-
grace, and reaching them have become
lost to society, lost to virtue and lost to
God. That man who thus rushes out
to affront God's decrees I personally re-
gard as worse than the devil himself.
He stands in the midst of a free people,
and in the proclamation of his impious
and infidelic principles is backed up
and supported by the flag of the grand
est government on the face of the
earth, while the devil, chained down
by the condemnation of Almighty God,
is compelled to work by stealth in per-
verting the hearts of men from the ob-
ligations they owe to their Maker."
He held that God was both good and
just; that in His goodness He had given
to man a free agency, and promised the
bliss of heaven as the reward for the
good deeds he might accomplish dur-
ing his temporal existence on earth.
That in His justness He had provided a

Lone Star Rifles Rail.
Artillery Hall shone forth last night
with resplendant scenes of beauty and
grace, on the occasion of the anniversai
ball of the Lone Star Rifles. The com-
pany celebrate the 19th of January as
their anniversary, this being the natal
day of R. E. Lee. This date coming on
Saturday, the ball was given last
night, and proved a success in all
the excellent and well arranged
appointments. The military of
the city and representatives of
companies in some of the interior
towns were present in uniform. The
scene was a brilliant one and presented
kaleidescopic views that were enjoyed
for hours by a gallery full of lookers-
on. Many very handsome toilets were
observed on the floor. Quite a number
of ladies and gentlemen went from the
opera to the hall, thus adding to the
fair and gay attendance at the hour
when the delights of the occasion had
reached their fullest development. The
decorations were simple, and included
the two flags of the company, present-
ed by the ladies of Galveston, taste-
fully arranged over a large picture of
Gen. Lee, with this quotation under-
JAKCART 19, 1807. Januajiy 19, 3878.
" Never hand waved sword from stain as free,
Nor purer sword led braver band,
Nor braver bled for a brighter land,
Nor brighter land had a cause as grand.
Nor a cause a chief like Lee."
The rosters of the original company,
for which the present organization is
named, and pictures of Lee and Jack-
son, were hung in places around the
gallery railing, and four stacks^of arms
were arranged on the stage. Follow-
ing were the committees:

Large Sale of Coffee.
A LEADINO GROCERY HOUSE
CARGO OF 4000 BAGS.
The cargo of the brig Ellida, consist
ing of exactly 4000 bags of collee, was
sold yesterday by J. H. Ellsworth &
Co., to Heidenheimer Bros., wholesale
grocers and importers. The transac
tion was a cash one, and the aggregate
of the invoice amounted to over a hun
dred thousand dollars. This is the
second cargo of coffee purchased by
the Heidenheimer Bros , and these
transactions afford a fair index to the
large business which this firm is doing.
Their purchases of sugar, meats, flour,
salt and other leading staples are always
on,a similar scale when practicable,and
their correspondents in the interior in
variably get their full share of benefits
always incident to large purchases. In
the present instance, although the
price paid for the cargo is admitted to
be a low one, it was not given for pub-
lication. Since the sale took place
about 1500 bags have been resold to
other grocers in the city, and with their
regular run of custom, the residue of
the cargo will not remain long on hand
especially as an examination of the
samples discloses the fact that it is one
of the finest cargoes ever imported di
rect from Rio. The firm is now busy

street lamps unlighted.
A reporter yesterday, noticing men
eDgaged in removing the burners from
the street lamps, called upon Superin-
tendent White, of the Gas Company,
to ascertain the cause. Mr. White re-
plied that the city owes $7000 for the
gas furnished for the fourteen months.
He added that the city refuses either to
pay or credit their city taxes on the
bill. He will not replace the burners
until their bill is paid.

backmen were arrested yesterday, not
having paid their licenses for the pres-

of the Age are rife; though several
propositions have been made, no sale
has been consummated.
—The street railroad turn-table at the
intersection of Dillas and Travis streets
was yesterday undergoing repairs.
-Some of the drivers on the Congress
street track pay very little attention to
the wants of patrons; cars going to
Union depot are almost invariably de
serted by passengers, who get tired
waiting for the car that should meet
them thero at the last switch. It is
hoped the new superintendent will rec-
tify this when he gets regularly to work.

When the Ohio Legislature was bal-
loting for a United States senator, last
week, it was noticed that the Republi-
can members did not compliment Hon.
Stanley Matthews with their votes, but
voted blank. True, there was no chance
for his election, but it was not to be
expected that his political friends
would ignore him studiously. The Ohio
senator ha3 written a private letter to a
member of the Ohio Legislature, in
which he says;
I have done no evt' to the Republican party.
I have done it all the good in my power— even
more than it seems willing to bear; yetlhive
been the victim ef the most bitter and unjust
assaults, my actions misrepresented, and my
motives misinterpreted; but time will make
all things ri«ht. Of course I have not expect-
ed tbe compliment of the Republican vote In
the General Assembly, although there is no
reason why I should sot receive it, and it will
be regarded as a sentence of adverse judg-
ment upon me; but It will make no difference
with me. Adherence to the Republican party
is a matter of principle, and is not to be de-
stroyed or in tbe least affected by any personal
wrongs inflicted upon me. I trust to time and
to the better judgment of the public for my
vinlicatton. It will surely come.
Yours truly, STANLEY MATTHEWS.
