n.— «The mayor had a vistion,/In his slumbers he was troubled,/Dreamed he saw a huge petition/Signed by more than 80,000/Of the people of they city,/Praying for a referendum./…It was signed by Cephas Wojjers,/ Calthumpian Magruder,/ Garibaldi Mantilini,/…Ananias Spizzerinctum.» —“In A Minor Key. The Mayor’s Dream.” Chicago Daily Tribune Jan. 20, 1907. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
