COMMON COUNCIL CONFLICT IS
AT AN END.
Calpln and His Colleagues Withdraw
from the Fight for Control of the
Lower Branch and Submit to Be
Sworn in by Mr. Bobathan to the
Accompaniment of Cheer-provoking
Olive-branch Oratory Com
mittees for the Year Named by the
Strife aneiit the reorganization of
common council Is ut an end. An
amicable understanding was arrived at
since tho lust meeting and when the
council convened lust night Mr. Robu
thun, as chairman, and Mr, Morris, us
clerk assumed the duties ot their re
spective positions without opposition.
Ex-Clerk Lynott was present among
the spectators. Ex-Chulrnun Calpln
went way back and sat down.
When Chairman Robathan hud rap
ped the meeting to order, Mr. Calpln
rose to explain the action ot himself
and colleagues In giving up the light.
Ho said that ho and his colleagues
still believed they wetu right; that
they had effected n legal organization
and that they would win out If the
mutter was taken Into court. In tho
Interests of harmony and for the sake
ot the city's Interests they had decided
to withdraw from the conlllct.
Referring to some threat that came
to Mr. Culpin's ear that they would bo
compelled to submit by physical force,
Mr. Calpln said he considered It nn In
sult. They were perfectly hone.it In
their opinion, ho said, that they were
in the right and felt It was a duty not
only to themselves but to their con
stituents to assert that right.
He concluded by saying that there
was no personal animosity engendered
on his side by the unpleasant events
transpiring since teorganlzatlon day,
and himself and his collegues had the
utmost confidence in the ability and
Impartiality of Mr. Robathan as a pie
BELIEVED THEM HONEST.
Mr. Robathan replied briefly, saying
it was his firm opinion that Mr. Cal
pln and his colleagues were honest In
their opinions and that the difference
was an honest one on both sides. He
too could say for the side he led that
there were no bitter feelings left as n
legacy of the fight. He asked for .the
hearty co-operation of all the members
and trusted that the city would be
greatly benefitted by the work they
would do during the coming year.
Mr. Keller also spoke a few words of
the olive branch order, and those of the
newly-elected or re-elected Democrats
who had taken the oath from Mr. Cal
pln came forward smilingly and were
sworn In again by Chairman Robathan.
There was hearty cheering and many
expressions of a good-natured kind at
tendant upon the obsequies of the
Mr. Robathan next had Clerk Morris
read the committees for the coming
year. Fourteen chairmanships went to
Republicans and seven to Democrats.
Albert Lewis and Mr. Harvey asked to
bo not given chairmanships. Two-thirds
of the members of each committee are
Republicans. The committees follow:

TO WAIT ON RECORDER.
Twentieth Ward Citizens to Protest
Against Sewer Assessment Or
dinances Not All Illegal.
A delegation of ptoperty owners from
the Twentieth ward will wait upon
Recorder Connell this afternoon nnd
enter it formal protest to him against
what they believe to bo the Injustice
of the sewer assessment recently made
for Section A, of tho Eighteenth sewer
The assessment for this sewer was
made by the city engineer In the man
ner provided by all the sewer ordin
ances passed by councils within the
last six months and more. It w.-is
bused on the assessed valuation of the
abbuttlng properties as per tho books
of the board of city assessors for the
fiscal year 3 001. Objection lias been
raised to this method of making a
sewer assessment It being described as
unfair and unjust.
The argument advanced In favor of
It is that it would not be right to
apply the foot front rule because of
the fact that the sewer passes through
various kinds of property Including
suburban and rural. It is held that
the owner of rural propertj- should
not be asked to pay as much in pro
portion as the owner of built up or
improved property". An effort is being
made to graduallj- break away from
the method of having sewer assess
ments made by viewers and to sub
stitute in all Instances the method
adopted in this instance namely the
adpotlon of the city assessment as the
basis for the sewer assessment.
In this connection it Is interesting to
note that the published statement that
all sewer and other Improvement or
dinances recently passed by councils
are illegal is entirely without basis in
fact. Neither has City Solicitor Wat
son been requested for a written opin
ion as to their legality. He Is merely'
examining them carefully prior to the
advertising for bids in order to satisfy
Director of Public Works Roche that
no technical objections can be raised
to them hereafter.

THE BISHOP'S LECTURE.
Bishop Charles H. Fowler with his
wonderful gift of language and his
treasures of memorj-, spoke for two
houis to a large audience in the high
school auditorium last night about
Abraham Lincoln and vividly those
who listened' could see the sad worn
face of the colossal central figure, the
stern cold personality of the great war
secretory, the swift glimpse of the
silent man of deeds in camp and field
and on and on a steady procession of
the great ones who walked across the
stage in the period preceding nnd dur
ing tho Civil war.
This is one singular gift of the groat
churchman. His hearers do not see the
bishop. Thej' forget even his voice, but
us in a wonderful dream thej see the
grand subject in heroic proportions, llv
iaig again through tho burdensome
j-ears, and the sorrow, tho misunder
standings and strain of a nation's peril.
That Is what was realized last night.
Tie showed them Lincoln the man jvho
"had tho faith of an Abraham, the
leadership of a Moses, the statesman
ship of a Pericles, the massive Intellect
of a St. Paul, the political sagacltj' of a
Richelieu, the Integrity of a Cromwell
and the patriotism of a Washington."
Ho was IiUroduced by Rev. Dr. Chas.
M. GHIln, who spoke of the bishop as
"the chief of all lecturers on tho chief
theme of all times."
The lecture was filled with brilliant
flashes of wit and epigrammatic
thoughts. Yet, beneath It was tho
earnest intensity and passionate feel
ing for the subject which carried a
contagious influence. The boyhood of
Abraham Lincoln, with the strango
preparation he had for tho responsi
bility to fall upon him were portrnj'ed
with graphic lldellty. After a picture
of tho gaunt, awkward figure came tho
swift comparison to the oak on the
stern mountain top, against whoso
trunk the wild boar sharpens its tusks,
and In whoso branches the lightning
has left a fleiy path and which bends
In the blast like the bow and files
back like the arrow. "That," said the
bishop, "was Lincoln."
The great solitary figure was pictured
ns going Into Washington ulone abso
lutely. He found two men to welcome
him In tho city. They were Washburne,
of Illinois, and William H. Seward. Ho
found tho solid rock of government In
11 few days but shifting sand. A navy
of ninety wooden vessels, forty-live In
such a condition that If unmoored they
would sink like bullets. Tho fortj'-llve
that could iloat were In Chinese or In
dian seas or locked up in southern
waters by tho compact between
Buchanan and Pltklns, of South Caro
lina. Four vessels alone won tho great
est sea light tlio world has ever known.

Lincoln's religious life, his singular
psychological experiences that seemed
like second-sight, and the sublime
heights to which he attained In the
days before his martyidom.
