It la not extravagant, because it ia pursu

It doos no barm, becauto It attetnpti to do

he will pardon aie for laying, hia council
etint to havo no comprehension of the

be has nothing to do but to
draw bis salary and pretidn at
tbe meetlogi of tbe council. He ban bad
the nnrvo Mayor "Wood does not Isck

To the Kditok or The Uullktis!
I Imagine that your remark! in this morn
ing's ilULt.KTl.v aro meant for a coup tl'
yraec, but notwithstanding I am here
again. 1 am sorry to say that tbo editor
has talked a great doal without really Bay
ing anything, but that I) u constitutional
falling lu tbo gentleman. 1 tee, at I have
often soon before, that It Is n gigAntlo task
to bring him to any point i. e., to get
him to aay decidedly that au und so la a
principle to whl'jh 1 assent. It bo ever
did aay ao It waa with n mental reserva
tion. Ho colncidua with everybody, haa
as many colora aa tho'spectritoi, Htid.us the
undulations never bavo Impinged him ex
ternally, it is not his fault.
I had not tho romotest idea of trying
to champion Dr. Brigham In n con tost
with tho editor. Ac'iampion ia somotbing
of which tbo doctor haa no noed. 1 wish
ed to mnko u suggestion in a polite way,
and I think It waa fairly male, und the
pooplo will decide tor themtolvos whether
tho ranting of tho editor did utij thing to
disprove tho Mens ndvanc.il.

When you say that "tho Illustration

Your uaiertion "that there is no con

a journalist. A force in nature may bo
