There have been few great Public meetings in this City in which an attempt by a ring or clique to gobble up the gathering Boot and All has been so effectually sat Down upon As at the voters mass meeting at urls Chi a convention Hall last night when a Good lot of administration hangers on under the leadership of some of the ring candidates attempted to Swallow the convention. This is the Way it happened pursuant to the Call for a meeting to ratify the nominations made at the Mission Garden something like Over six Hundred voter assembled at the convention Hall. There was also a canard. Washington feb. 5.�?mr. Mason commissioner of internal Revenue says that the article recently appearing in a Washington special in one of the new Orleans papers giving what purported to be a synopsis of his instructions on the Bounty question was entirely tin warranted. Considerable hustling in the Camp of the ring and shortly after eight of clock those Arch ring men Jose Cassiano and Thad Smith entered the Hall followed by the entire ring candidates their friends and some Hundred Odd cheap voters. They had come with one single View to Knock out and turn the convention into a Callaghan affair. Therefore when at 8 30. In. Or. A c. Caie rapped to order and called for nomination for chairman or. Jas. A. Dwyer Drew up Bis Vest with a statesman like dignity and nominated or. E. P. Claudon. The chair promptly informed the gentleman that this was an adjourned meeting and was opposed to the administration hence the nomination of or. E. P. Claudon was sadly out of order. Or. Henry e. Vernor had been nominated by or. C. L. Sauer previous to the nomination of or. Claudon and he was elected chairmen by a rousing vote. Or. Vernor stepped upon the platform and began the discharge of his duties when the Blooming face of our City clerk made its appearance upon the platform. This was the signal for derisive jeers from the audience. The clerk blandly inquired who had been elected chairman of the meet lug. He was told by or. Vernor upon which he mysteriously disappeared As though devoured by a trap door. Then came the blow that paralysed the ring crowd and Tore into shreds All of their cherished Hopes of gobbling up the gathering. The chairman rapped the meeting to order with the words a i desire to state that the object of this meeting Here is to ratify the nominations made at Mission Garden. Furthermore it is the object of the meeting to nominate men for the vacancies made by decimation. And thirdly it is the object of this Assembly to oppose the present administration Aud those of its adherents who Are Here May remain but they Cauuet have a say in the scarcely had the words been uttered when the House broke into loud and prolonged cheers that rung and resounded As though born of one breath. The vast audience went wild in their approval of the utterances and the appreciation of the Backbone of the chair. The people were alive to the situation. The ring Taw All was lost and Gen. Nat Lewis summoned what was left of his forces and meekly slunk out of a Side door. The chairman rapped the meeting to order and called for nominations for Secretary. The name of or j. A. Appier was presented and he was elected to the position. The Reading of the report of the executive committee wan next la order and was read by the Secretary As follows a emr. Chairman the executive committee appointed by the chairman of the Mission Garden mass meeting beg to report that Sluce that meeting your committee have seen the various nominees. Or. Kalteyer the nominee for mayor has declined but Given Bis approval of the movement. Or. Ramsay nominee for collector has declined because of failing health. Or. Kiolbassa for assessor. Or.

Or. J. N. Gallagher for recorder. Or. W. W. Walling for City attorney. Jno. T. Hambleton and Ben Mauer Mann have accepted nominations for aldermen at Large. The second and third wards have not yet selected candidates for aldermen. Your committee recommends the ratification of the candidates who have accepted and the nomination of candidates to fill the vacancies. Upon motion the report was adopted. Or. Appier moved that the herniation of All Ward aldermen made at the Mission Garden in the previous convention be included Iii the report of the executive committee. Carried. The motion that the nominations be ratified by this convention was made and recorded the motion was put to a vote and carried amid applause. The candidates were thereupon declared ratified. Chairman Vernor announced that nominations for mayor were in order. The name of Captain Edgar Schramm was presented to the convention for consideration. Nominations were then closed and capt. Schramm was unanimously amid great Elihu Siam Omi nailed for the office by . A committee of three messes. Sauer Caie and Richmond were appointed to escort Captain Schramm to the platform. Toe appearance of the nominee was greeted with rousing cheers and his Short address was continually interrupted by Long Aud loud cheering of the enthusiastic gathering. A fellow citizens a said Captain Schramm in reply too alls for a speech a you have just nominated me for mayor of san Antonio and judging from the unanimity with which it was done i feel that a change in the City administration is greatly it was not his intention to run for the office but As a number of men. Owing to business interests had refused to run he had submitted to the Earnest solicitations of his friends Aud hereby accepted the nomination. He had always refused an office because he had been too poor and did not believe in depending upon an office for a living. A it is useless for me to say that if i am elected i will do my duty and i Promise that if elected i a Hail act fairly it and squarely towards every one. I shall strive to do unto others As i would have them do unto me. Friends if i were not assured that a change in the administration of affairs was wanted i would not be a candidate for the office. If Lam elected i will consider myself the Peoples servant not their master and i will try to demonstrate that it is possible for a City a officer to be its he urged upon everybody to do his duty at the polls a for a were his closing words a i scorn to buy or barter when the enthusiastic cheering had in banded the chair called for nominations for collector. Or. Chaa. L. Sauer nominated or. John b. Walter for the office and he was endorsed by the convention. Or. A ton sell Al received the nomination for City marshal. The office of City assessor was temporarily passed und the nomination of two aldermen at Large was called for. Rho names of messes. A. F. Wulfin and Gen. W. H. Young were presented Aud they received the nomination. Next the office of City assessor was taken up and or. Gustane Peltzer received the nomination. This closed the nominations and the following resolutions were thereupon presented resolutions. Resolved. That the Assumption on the part of the so called democratic and Republican county executive committees to nominate a City ticket and to dictate to the Independent voters that they shall continue in place the present City administration is an insult to the intelligent people of this City. 2nd. That we do not recognize the right of these so called executive county committees to interfere with or dictate the politics or action of either party in City affairs. 3rd. That we Appeal to the mass of the voters irrespective of party affiliation to put Down at the polls this attempted conspiracy Giust their Independence Aud the political integrity of every Democrat and every Republican of the City of san Antonio. 4tb. That the mass of the voters of either political party constitute the Only source of authority that executive committees no matter How made have no authority to announce or dictate tickets. 5th. That we believe a change of City administration will be to the Benefit of the Public interests. 6th. That we Are opposed to the present City administration because it has resolved into a one Man Rule that we believe a Complete investigation of the affairs of the City government is demanded and cannot be had unless a change is made that the Large increase of Over bonded debt the heavy increase of assessment of property the increased Long of taxation is out of proportion to the improvements made that the present administration has failed to Complete the Public works and improvements for which the people have voted their Money. 7th. That the place that it is necessary to continue the present administration in order to perfect the present so called system of Public improvements is an insult to the intelligence of the people for if tills system is Wise and beneficial to the City then the change from the present administration to on4 emanating from the people instead of the so called executive committees will see to it that the system is perfected that we Are opposed to a a system of Public improvements that discriminates in the employment of Labouring men in mayor of one class or nationality. 8th. We charge that the plea in favor of the a present system of improvements Means that the present administration desire time to remain in Power in order that they May cover up their Short comings Aud deceive the people As to the True condition of affairs. 9th. We therefore Appeal to the people to come to the polls without fear or trembling and for the Good of the City vote for a change of City officials. The Reading of these telling resolutions was listened to with attention and they were adopted with Greaten thus asm. A motion was then made and carried that the executive committee be empowered to fill All vacancies for office which May occur after which some seventh Ward voter wanted to reconsider the nomination of c. Runge for Alderman from the seventh Ward. After a Short but pointed discussion the House upheld the nomination of Ward Alderman from the seventh Ward which the Mission Garden convention had made. The motion to adjourn was Here sprung and carried the meeting being a Short business like and highly enthusiastic one lasting but one and a Quarter hour. There were fully seven Hundred voters present. Amusements. At the grand opera House last night or.
