We Justify Mayor Winter in his action
In the Hcno case, for her ca was henl
ous. The charge against her was Keep,
lng a house of ill fame, but the oflense
was something else and so bad that It
could not be decently put Into a charge.
If her only offense had Wen the charge
made against her, 3tayor Winter would,
we are Infomed, have ken logical ami
have discharged her, ugly and worn out
as she Is. He stands by the UrcNlon of
the people ot Cairo, and will not permit
any of the unfortunate tobe Haed or im
prisoned during his term of olllcc. so
long as they shall comport themselves In
decencjv v'HeWIll, stand between them
and the persecutions of the olllccn,of the
law as the teople desire him to do, but

We stated yesterday llfat "John McXuIfy
arrested the unfortunates the Inmates of
houses of III fame who went ilNoharp-d
by Mayor Winter from lhuenliihonu ilu

McXulty was present iw nsnoct.itorat the
trial, but he did not arrest the women.
They were arrested by nobody. They
heard that otllivrs were siunmoulnir wit
nesses against them, and that they were
likely to. be Indicted by the grand jury,
and took legal advice. Helng Intormcfl
that they could not be tried and punished
twice for the same eflense, u u body they
leporteil at 'he police olllee, gave them
selves up on the charge of U-lng Inmates
ot houses or 111 fame, weretried, lined and
Imprisoned. Mayor Winter, after they
hail been In the calaboose a few hours, re
leased them. The grand-jurors Investi
gated the matter, and came to l -.n.l n.
slon that the nlrls had not ahead of them
and dropped the matter. That Is the
whole of It;
l lie Council refused to mince the
llijiior license from $200 a year to $100 in
face of the tact that one of the Issues on
which Mayor Winter was elected, was
low liquor license. Cairo decided at the
ballot-box that Mayor Wood's adminis

business, w hetlier It he great or small,
the city will dwindle Intocomparallve in
significance. We cannot stand still we
must either advance or retrogade. Which
