The n Riilur weekly meeting of the City Conn* «il was field lasi night, Mayor Hoync In the choir. Kvery Alderman was in his place, with the cx> jeptlon of Aid. I.oddlng, and there was u large i uuiiuiico of citizens. TIME OP MEETING. Sot ao amendments wore made in the minutes of th/e last meeting, and Aid. Throop moved to rcco naldcr the action of tho Connell In adopting ruh in for the guidance of the body. Curried. /lid. Throop moved that Rule No. 1 be so an fended as to change the time of holding the regular racctingr. from 7:30 Monday evenings to 8 in the afternoon. After some discussion, Aid. Thompson pnlntct out that an ordinance was necessary to make ih change. The motion was then referred to the.Tudlclary Committee, with instructions to present an ordinance cm the subject. Aid. While called up and moved tho passage of tho ordinance hi regard to the paving of Ful ton street from Sangamon to Ada. Aid. Smith sold water-mains were to he laid on tho street, ami he would move that the work be deferred until sixty days after this Improve ment wns effected. Aid. Thompson moved that the Board of Pub lic Works be directed to advcrtlfiu for proposals for this work, and let it to the lowest bidder. The amendments were accepted by the mover, and the ordinance passed os amended. Tho Clerk read the following communication: To //w Honorable the Common Council of the City of Chicago: I received to-day from New York thin fcltnr, which, with my reply by telegraph, I submit to yonr honornblo body: “Ton Amktucas UxntANon Bank.

I have directed our bookkeeper to forward your account, requested, and shall be glad to receive your licnt counsel an to the course it in advisable ‘for on and other holders of Chicago certlflcatcn to pursue. ••In order to elicit snine expression of tho pur pose of Vhe parties In possession of the city oiitnor lly, I Ivave addressed a letter to-day to the • Comp troller of the City of Chicago’ (Impersonally), ask ing v/hat In to be done la respect to tho obligations Already matured aim to ibono duo June 1; also slating that U In of vital Importance for the credit tvf the city that I should he ofllclally Informed, an fin agent, what course In to he taken with Itfl cred itors. I hope to get from some one In possession of authority u definite reply. I can only add that a continued default will ulloct tho credit, not of tho city alone, but of every corporation and busi ness man within it. Ah public debt throughout the country has taken the form of city obligations, the i default of so prominent A place as Chicago has Im , mensi!significance, ton degree commensurate with I its Intrinsic Importance And to he apprehended ef fect upon others. In this aspect or the ca«e ttio responsibility of delay or hesitation in continuing the negotiation of the certificates on heretofore, and the vigorous collection of tuxes mid their im plication to tho reduction of the floating debt, will fall heovlly upon thoso who permit It. Unplug that tho City of Chicago may he spared such a dis grace, 1 remain, dear sir. yours truly, * • (.» ttotioK 8. C.'ok, President.” I have replied by telegraph as follows: ••1 believe this city will provide honorably for 1 its paper, notwithstanding the present unfortunate complications. 1 understand Uln now almost cer tain that tho case between Mr. Colvin and Mr. Boyne will he heard by the Circuit Court Wednes day, and decided without unnecessary delay. Jt Is not impoinihle that both parties may abide hy t;hal decision. My own connection with tho financed of the city may therefore cease within a few days. My plan Is, acting under the ordinances of the City Council, to place on tho market, by advertisement, corllftcntes or revenue warrants chargeable to tho funds represented hy the outstanding certificates, and drawn against tho proper proportion and jiart of tho uncollected taxes of lH7.i, And prbr years, ami payable out of said luxes Juno I. 1K77, with Interest nt 7 per cent per annum at IhoOlty Treasury, to ho sold at a rate not exceeding Bl>er cent per annum, which lathe limit fixed by the ordinance, of which you have a copy, and to ap ply the proceeds to the payment of tho existing loans with Interest. Other revenue-warrants for loans to meet the July Interest will In like man ner he drawn, payable out of tho tax levy for 1*7(1, and offered for salo. This, of course, Is sublet lott possible repeal of the ordinance, and to the contingency of my ceasing to act for tho city. Does this plan meet the approval of yourself i.nrt other holders of ottr paper In Now \ork. and M ill they not hold the paper of the city without pro test until It can be consummated? ••S. 8. llavks, Comptroller. ■” I hove rend certain resolutions adopted hy a nutt ing this morning, upon tho report of a committee, which, l umliTstand, are to ho ottered In tho City ('(•illicit. JThe resolutions are given In tho renort of the conference.) It is not to bo expected that persons unacquaint ed with the finances of the city wouhl be üblo to prepare a perfect plan of administration. It is my duty to inform you of several fatal ob jections to tho scheme proposed: 1. The Incoming luxes will bo loft In tho Treasury for long periods of lime without Interest. •J. By pledging all tho back taxes of 1870 <md prior years for tho certificates of Indebtedness, and July and January Interest, tho policemen, tire, men, school-teachers, and other creditors of tho city who hold none of tho certificates of Indebted ness, will )* robbed of the funds appropriated and being collected for their payment. ;i.

In fart, the present County Treasurer ItC* frequently refused to receive any eortllkalosor orders of the city in ttui manner promised, al though requested by thu Comptroller to do so.

Mr. President, I move the communication be not received. Aid. bengacher explained that ho wan about to make a motion under the Impression that the order wax ilni*hc>t, hut gave way to allow tho continual* cation to be read. Aid. Cnllortim—lf I understand tho Clerk and the presiding officer correctly, the order of report* of city officer* ww concluded, and Aid. l,cn«acher then got tho door and asked consent to Introduce a revolution. I made the remark that wo had passed the order of buaiueaa fur receiving report* and nunmUDlcatloiia. and, aa a member of the Coun* cii, Ido nut propose to receive that aa a report from a city officer. I think, upon reflection, that CHICAGO, TUESDAY, MAY 30, 187 G. •PAVING FOI.TON STREET. HIIAI.L IT 1»B UKUBIVBUi the Clark will see that It Is not received under the head of “city officers.” Aid. Thompson—l would suggest to the Alder man that. liiMtnnch os the document has been read, U might as well go to the Finance Commit tee. 1 would make that as a motion. AM. Cullerton—l should certainly object to the motion to refer. Aid. Pearsons—l shall second the motion tbntlbe commonlcatlon be not received. Aid. Cullerton—Docs theClialr entertain tho mo lioh ? The Chairman—Yes, sir. . , AM. Cullerton—l am somewhat surprised at Mr. Hayes sending In such ft tommunlcallon. ftftcr taking the trouble of distributing this speech to the pnblie (holding op one of the printed slips of myex* card to the public). If the gentlemen take occasion to read that through, and If they nay at tention to the document which has been read, they will find that they differ widely. I hold that It Is tlie duty of this Council not to receive the commu nication. With due respect to Mr. Hayes, whol«a warm personal friend of mine. I certainly must give my opinion that the introduction of this document at this stage of the proceedings In nothingel-c but buncombe. This is the same Ithe card to the public]. It Is true the motion not tn receive should in-carefully considered. Probably the document might Im’ received end placed on file, or even re ferred. If a motion Is made to refer, I don't know hut on consideration I will withdraw my motion: and If the gentleman desires its reference I shall move Its reference to another committee, for the purpose of discussing and reaching thin speech of AM. Thompson—l then move to refer to the Com mlliw on Finance. AM. rnllcrton—l move to refer to tho Committee on Judiciary. . , . Aid. Gilbert—lnasmuch as Mr. Hayes has been removed, tho communication cannot on from a city officer. I would like to ask. Mr. President. If the cornmnmcallon is received from a city officer? The Chairman—l cannot slate that, hut It Is Irafore the hou-e. ami a motion Is pending to refer to thu Committee on Finance. Aid. Gilbert—lf he Is a city officer we acknowl edge It hy referring It; but if the communication is from a private the rufcrcncu would be no rernpnltion. .... AM. Hildreth—l util Mr. Ilsyoft* successor is qualified Is not he the Comptroller? Aid. Gilbert—Mr. Hayes was Cimiptroßer until such time ns His Honor removed Idm nnd appoint ed his successor. Aid. Pearsons—l don’t wish IhM communication to bo referred to the Finance Committee, for as a member of that Committee I have LOST ALL IIESPBCT FOll A COMPTnOLLEU who has held the office for two or three years and ha- left the employes of the city wlthonl their money. (Applause.] If the gentleman has float cd for the last three or four month:* upon the cred ulous and grasping men of thu East certifiejited against the City of Chicago, and these men actual ly knew that those certificates were questionable ns to Umlr legality—if he could do that and get all the money be chose—why, I a«k. did he not pay the employes of Urn city? That Is the question. (Applause.] I have no confidence In any in mi, be Im- Comptroller or not. who would allow such a stale of things to come down to this Administration as Is coming down to ns at the present time. We now owe to otir em ployes a million of money; andthi* Finance Onm mit’toe ami this Council are Isinnd by sacred obli-, gallons to pay them every dollar In greenbacks and not certificates. This Finance Committee Is working for that very cud. and I* going to ac complish It. It has done my son] good, —it has let light In. gentlemen.—to see the bankers and mcr chdptsof Chicago ready to respond to the call of this Administration for money at any time we may make It. (Applause.] Further along In the even ing Ills qnl cprobnble there will bo an opportuni ty for mo to make eomo further reounrks on this question. It Is a question that I foul deeply on. I cannot express my feeling- on this subject. The employed of the city must he paid. (Applause.] Ald.'Lcugacbcr—Aid.

These arc painful limes. It affects the hearts of men and tries thdr sou*, etc. I am sorry to see gentlemen so deeply affected here to-night, espe cially when there Is an opportunity for gculhimen to became enlightened om the subjects that appear before the Council, and 1 must say I am a Mttip bit pained: ray heart In somewhat grieved. I feel sad fora moment to think that any gentleman of this Council should attempt to criticise the acts of the Comptroller, Mr. Hayes, for the naylng of employ es of the City of Chicago. I would like to ask the Finance Committee if tl»‘y. in their profound wis dom, sre able to pay otf the employes individually out of thdr own purses. If bo. Chicago will feel grateful that she has euch a Finance Committee. If they arc not able to pay the employes cer tainly they could not call upon Mr. Hayes without the people paying In thdr taxes, to pay the employes. Then I would soy one word for informa tion. and that Is this: the employes of the City of Chicago would have been paid long ago. only for the very fact of the question arising, brought up and agitated by the newspapers, ami only for the present trouble no gentleman's heart would have btedni it does here to-night. But, the delay will very soon be overcome, and then tide heart-bleed ing will he done with. Aid. Briggs—lf in order. I have some resolutions from the Finance Committee. Aid, Hilbert—l move the communication from Mr. Hayes bo not received. Aid. tdieridan—l second the motion, on the ground that Mr. Hayes la not the Comptroller of the dtv, and has not l»ocn since the removal by your Honor, one week ago. lie signs himself Comptroller. Ills disposition to bold on to the olhec during the past week, thus embarrassing the affair* of the corporation, seems to me to l« one of I the strangest affairs In connection with the whole trouble. 1 think, with Aid. Hilbert, the COMMUNICATION CANNOT nE RRCBIVED In the present form, without offering mi tndlpnlly lo yourself and this Council, I’craunally I hove nhfch regard for Mr. llayea, but In my present views 1 ci-rtnlnly cannot bo a parly to any aelf atultlflcation. . Alii. Sweeney—l would like In ask tho gentleman If Mr. llnye* 1" not Comptroller until tho oilier gentleman qualifies. Aid. Sheridan—No, air. Aid. Sweeney—Hv what authority? Aid. Sheridan—lly Iho power of the Mayor he wna removed a week ago. ..... Aid. Sweenev— Haa the other man qualified? Aid. Sheridan—That make* no difference. There la mi eh a thing a* an Interregnum. Thin Is not the find time U haa occurred. Aid. Sweeney—l suppose not. Aid. Sheridan—There haa been an Interregnum for the pa«t week. ... .... Aid. I.engneher—W ith all due reaped to the arte* eesaorof Si S. Ilayes whom you have appointed. 1 would like to iwk If the charier does not say that tho Comptroller ahull servo until Ida accounts ar« accented and the new Comptroller qualifies. 1 tliluk he la tho Comptroller until Mr. Derlckaon haa given Ida bond and I* thereby qualified. I think he la treated with 111-feellng. Why can tide paper not be received and referred to tho appropriate Committee? Aid. cidlcrton—Wlllyoupoint oulyour authority forvouraaaertlona? . ...... Aid. Leneaehor—Kxccpt he haa tiled Ida bond ami haa qualified hr la not Comptroller. To whom ahal) Mr. Have* turn over Ida hooka? To a man who ban never furnished any bonda? To a man who cannot conduct bln own financial affairs? Aid. (HUM*rt—See. 1 of the Mayor's act Rive* tho power to the Mayor to remove an ofllccr, and aay* the Mayor may appoint any snltatdn person to dis charge the duties of the office until his successor la appointed and qualified. It don’t sav that after an onlrer haa been removed he Is to hold over until Ida aucces-or la appointed. _ Aid. Sweeney—Has the Mayor given Mr. Derick son possession of tlie office? Aid. Hilbert—That don’t make any difference at Aid. Sweeney—lt makes u great deal of differ- ence. It seems to me. . .. .. Aid. Hilbert—lt don’t say that Iho person dis charged shall Iw held over. Mr. Derlcksou was named last Monday evening, and he takes posses sion of Iho olllre, .. . Aid. Cullurton—l moved that this be not re ceived. I was taken by surprise that such a com munication should como in. However, lam not now of the opinion that It should not he received, ami t favor tho substitute by Aid. Hilbert. Thu gentlemen from the Seventh (Aid. Hildreth) has made a reference that Mr. Hayes would have paid (he employes of the city some time ago had not this question arisen, (submit to the gentleman and his friends whether Mr. Hayes has not had, ■ since last November or December, an opportunity of paying a portion of these men at least. I will submit If it (> not true that the moneys paid by the taxpayers into the Treasury have UONB TO NBW YOUK FOU TUB FATMBNT OF CUKTIPICATBA that had matured. 1 would submit to the penile* iuuii If It la mil a fact that it haa been the hulilt of a larpw portion. if nut all. of the poorer classes and the mldillu classes invariably to pay their tax* r». and If It I* not also a fact that that money was trnnsferri'd from the City Treasury to Sew York, instead of Its soltic to the payment of those men! Aid. Hildreth—Too thin. Aid. (’ullerton—The gentleman in the rear says It's too tiiln. it Is itimply the difference of opinion that exist* tn-dav, and It I* the difference of upin* hm that wus the eansn of Mr. Hayes' rentoval; and 1 desire to say that that communication was sub mitted for no other tmrnoau than buncombe. Aid. I'carsons-lnum. Aid. Cnllcrtou—The removal of Mr. Hayes haa taken effect. There is no question about IbaL Now, Ur. Hayes. In a part of bia speech that is delivered to the public,—l presume tint was written before this, or othorwUw bo would have «cea the mistake,— aayat “1. Recnose tho Mayor’s act, and the removal clause In tho general law of 1K72. are prohatdy un constitutional, and their methods of procedure arc against the common law and common right. ”2. Because, even under these acts, I conld not bo removed, except upon charges disqualifying me front office. and upon which I had a right to he heard before It could take effect. •• 3. Because the net of removal never was at tempted at all. but was falsely reported to the os seninly of Aldermen, and only on tho following Wednesday a document was written and dated back to antedate the inciting of Conndlmen, and left at my office to offonl » legal basis for tho protended removal twodny* before; and “4. Because Mr. lloyne was not Mayor of Chi cago by lawful election. or In fact, and had not the power to displace me by a removal or by the ap pointment of a successor, whether to (111 a vacancy, If there be a vacancy, or otherwise.” If the gentleman was nut so hot-headed ho would not feel so sore. lam surprised at u gentleman of Mr. Hayes* Intelligence submitting such a docu ment to the public. It Is un Insult to this body and to the community. Aid. Lengacher—To a few of them. AM. Cullerton—Vcs. The act under which Mr. Hayes was removed tinder was approved April U), IHf.'i. If ho hail taken the trouble to quote the truth. 1 would have taken no exceptions, but I do lake exception to Um receiving by the legislative body of ibis city of ft document like this, particu larly when It Is signed by “H. S. Hayes. Comp troller. " I wonder why fir did not sign this speech “H. S. Hayes, Comptroller.” Now. Ihojie that the document will not he received. 1 don't believe It ought to be. I believe tint hi- speech with refer ence to the poor man Is entirely out of place, and 1 believe If Is the duly of the legislative authority of this city, a- soon us the ouestlou ran be determined In the courts, to see that th employes of the city shall he paid. I hope that the decision of the court/* will be u final one, nnd I he lleve it for the best Interests of the city that It should so l>e agreed upon. I don’t believe that Mr. Colvin, should he he unsuccessful, would at tempt to occupy the chair, it would be useless for him to do so. The credit of the city would bo worse than while he was Mayor. Mr. Colvin as Mayor, ami Mr. Hayes »s Comptroller, with the Council with then:, had an opportunity of preserv ing the credit of the city. wnr dids t rnnr do it! Simply because the cttpitallet* of this city and the bnslness-mcn had lout nil confidence In Mr. Col vin's administration. That I* the reason, to a great extent, why Mr. Hayes was compelled logo Ka«t to borrow money. You mav as well look at this question as it is. Mr. Colvin, nhonld UiecourP* restore him to power, would bo in a worse condition than he was for month* prior to these questions arising. Yonr Honor will he declared the legal Mnvor, I have no doubt, and it Is a question for the court-, bronchi up bvMr. Colvin, who asks von why yon are Mayor. The courts will settle it right away. I have no doubt that, if thi- question was loft entirely out of the courts, the capitalists mill everybody would recommend the legislative authority to par the employes, and even If this thing Is not decided in a week the employes will be paid. 1 believe and hope this matter will he ended after the decision of Urn Court, It matters not which wav It goes, and 1 hope that communication will not bn received. It is Improper to receive It, Inasmuch as Mr. Hayes signs himself Comptroller. He lias been removed under the act of lo'.'j. and that settles it. Aid. Hildreth—l hope it will he referred. It matters not whether he slims himself Comptroller or noL If such a document could I*j put In the breast* of a great many of the gentlemen who characterize the acts of Mr. Hayes, I tell yon they would spunk more Intelligently on the financial condition of this city than they do at the present time. There 1* not u gentleman In this Council that is aide to discuss the question of our finances equal with Mr. Hayes. You may differ with him In policy, hut ns this question has been probed* e.n»l von are going to the Isjttom of It, you find that It Is one of the patent facts that It Is an utter Impossi bility to do away with this certificate business. Yon'have characterized them ns Illegal pieces ol paper floating around for the purpose of s.vlndllnt the public, and now the regime is to indorse by t stamp procedure these certificates that an; Illegal, and by stamping these facts on them we will make them legal. 1 And everything cheeks up beautiful- Iv In the Comptroller's office. Everything is foum correct, except In the City Collector a ollice. Aid. McAulcy—A point of order. Tlie gentlcmar Is discussing things not pertinent to the Issue. Tin* Chairman-Confine yourself to the question. Aid. Hildreth—Yes, but Inasmuch as Aid. Culler ton ran so faraway, I thought it was a sort of r free school, and I would go in on Hie tame road. Some nay the communication is AN INSULT TO TIMS COUNCIL I don’t believe Mr. Hayes would Insult any gen tleman In thin Council or in Chicago. When m**n talk of hln Insulting them, they talk of something I have never yet heard placed at Mr. Hayes' door. Wlion you wish lo characterize hit* acts as Comp troller, any qcntleionn In thin Council that attempt* It In tiring with n gun that is not of a callbns sulll dent to reach the mark. That communicuJinn I hope may t»o Kent to Committee*, unci I think Committee Ik the appropriate one. Aid. Thrcmp—l don't ri*e to take up lime In th Connell. We have *pcnt an hour here on th foolish qneKtion of the reference which we eon’ have disposed of In two minute*. I hope thcthli will he referred, for the reason that there are no h. dividual* In onr comnmnlty that are no low hut whnt they have the right to present a communica tion to nil* Council. Aid.

A lot of boys would have settled the question long mm. hrl it po to the Finance Committee, and I move it t*o to them. Aid.

At.D. imtdOß I wish to say a few word* upon them. Those resolutions have been under consideration some time with the Finance Committee, and 1 will say that ther occ Indorsed with olmost entire ununiirdtv. Wo were n«surcd by bankers In New York, tfhohotd large amounts of there certificates, nnd they signified that something of Ibis kind would Ira entirely sat isfactory. One banker here who haw a large amount signifies his satisfaction. We are übo assured by some prominent merchants that there will be no trouble in raising a million dollars if those resolutions are parsed. I won't take up any time now, but I am In favor of the resolutions. LET us HB I*KBCt»B. AM. Cullerton—ls that thu report uf the Com- littce on Finance? AM. Briggs—Yes. sir, and the resolutions. AM.

Ciillerlon—Yes. Aid. Hildreth—Let me state the matter u It Is. The Alderman Is up to the tricks that 1 myself ptuv, and knowing them so we]], I cun explain them. The point Is this: A gentleman takes the door and nmuv the passage of the ordinance, and no Alderman rises In his real »nd seconds tin* mo tion. lie virtually seeonib- ids own motion, and upon that calls the prevliMnwjuestloD. That is con tra rv to mtr rules. AfiL Cullcrton—'Will tin: gentleman give way for a questionT Aid. Hildreth—Kot This is certainly out of order. Mr. President.

Cullorton’s for the purpose of getting it fairly before the nousc. Aid. Cullerton—A point of order. The previous question is not debatable. The Chairman—l have not understood that the previous question was called after the passage of the resolution was seconded. The dUcus-lon proceeded further In this strain, and Aid.
