I would call your attention to thecnor
mouuainmint of ordinances uow on or

forced on account of tholr Impruetlca
blllty, or their couttlet with lti flOHtral
law tinder which the city is now govern
ed. It would thcretorc be tietter to codlfr
anil revise the same. To this end I woul'd
call the attention of the city council nnd
committee on ordinance at an early day.
The health of the city nt the present
time Is very good, except three (3) case'
of small pox, all of which are having
proper intention, anil nre rapidly nj
proachlng convalescence. The executive,
with the Hoard ol Health, w ill spare no
effort? to confine and stop tho ipread f
thU loathsome disease. While on the
question of health I would admonish the
leople. In time of peace to prepare for
war. It U very probable that early in
the season, we will have contagcous dis
eases below and around us, and It Is nec
essary for usto cleanse the city so as not
to "Invite the wolf to our door," so lot

cleanse up Ids or her premises, leaving
nothing itor the city to do but to look
after the cleanliness ql Its street,
As the representative ol thepeoiile who
have rleetctl me, I warn all gamblers and
confidence men, they must not, nor shall
not pursue their avocation in this city. I
advise saloon-keepers not to allow boys
to frequent 'their places of business to
play cards ami carouse, In which ease the
ordinances will be rigidly enforced.
This advise Is to perfect a more moral
state of affairs in the community.
IIOt'SKS OK 1'KOSrlTt'TIOX.
The moral well being and good onler
of the. community do not rcqulru the
arrest monthly of these poor unfortunate
creature, causing them therefore to be
eotne;degrntlod and wretched. If a crime
is committed thev nre only the nnrtv to
one-half of It; Ills not necessary tbat the
city optionees should be kept up lu any
measure by the lines Imposed upon those
unfortunates. It should cau'e the blush of
shame to tinge the cheek of any citizen
who advocates such a course. Otllcors
making thec nrre-ts share the .'polls and
eat the bread bought with money earned
by prostitution. Uoe.s this correct the
morals ol our community: No! Let
the moral men and women of Cairo work
together and lend a helping hand to those
fallen creatures, and try to reform them,
to make good nnd ucfiil women.
Money spent toolishly it applied to this
purpose, would do much toward their
reformation, and save many u fallen crea
ture. While recommending this course,
wo must not lose sight of the fact
that we have houses tit prostitution
In our inld't, and It anybody
Is aggrieved, let them appeal lo the law
by making complaint ; then It will be the
duty ol the police to serve the papers,
and" make tlie arrest, and not make the
complaint themselves, nnd share with
the oitv lu the spoil'. Hut nt the same
time tlie Inmates ol such hoit-es will not
be allowed to ilautit through the street
as the glided butterfly an attraction for
the youth to gaze upon. In such cases,
tlie ordinances ot the city will be rigidly
enforced. Prostitution being a crime
and dltllcult ol handling, we must deal
with It the be-t we can, for model re
