Alderman Itlttcnhouse hit a heavy
blow at a growing evil when hu Intro
duced Into the Council and had adopted
thu following resolution :
lUsotccd. That, hcrealter. the City
Council will recognlA! no bills presented
for payment, unless they havo first been
ordered by the City Comptroller or Clerk
and vouched lor by the chairman of the
committee of tho 'department for which
such services and supplies aro needed.
The Intention of till resolution i to
permit no otllcer of the city but the
Comptroller or Clerk to make bills,
:md of course the Comptroller or Clerk
can order nothing that ho Is not author
1cd by ordinance to order.
Clly officers have been In tho habit
of ordering little things sucli as gas tlx
turcs for police headquarters, publication
ot notices of assessment, collln, Ac.
without authority, and having the thing
charged to tho city. The Council, at its
last meeting, properly referred back all
such bills to the olllccr making the order
lor payment. If otlleers may, without an
order irom the Council, order work done
and buy articles for the city, the Council
might as well adjourn iir. tltc and per
mit the otlleers to take control of the
treasury, Such a dangerous .prac
tice was growing up, but the Council saw
It floating in the air and lias nipped It in

guilty of Infringing, an ordinance of thu

compel his receivers to not do what ho
himself would not dare do. Why don't

tho road has been In successful operation
for the past three years, without an acci

been over tho road at a rate of thirty
miles an hour and considered myself as

The cost of the road was about two
thirds the cost of the ordinary road, and
Its success being so fully assured, a com
pany Is being organized to extend the
"little toy road" (as some ot Its enemies
call It,) to Memphis and Vlcksburg lu

little road since it began business has
been only fifty-eight per cent, of Its gross
earnings. Wo can Imagine the result
when well established, and bettor Mine
prevail. It has already reduced the lo
cal freights one-half, nnd local fares

roads are. a success loyond all question ;

People in general, from what they ha ye

Intelligent, wide awake and industrious.
The climate Is unsurpassed for salu
brity, and thu healthfulness of its Inhab
itants cannot be excelled. There was a
time, however, before tho swamps were
cleared, before the leyecs were con
structed, and before the dead and dying
cottonwood, sycamore and other trees
gave way to tine streets and buildings,
that Cairo, like all other river bottom
towns, was unhealthy. Cairo dates its
existence from 18.l,"wiien the llrst lots
were sold and thu llrst improvements
commenced, and to-day has a population
of about 10,000, divided about equally
between foreigners, negroes and Ameri
cans. The country about Cairo, lu Illi
nois, Kentucky mid Missouri, Is of the
most fertllu and productive character; all
the agricultural products of tho North,
and many products of tho South, includ
ing tobacco, cotton, hump, llax nnd sweet
potato, aru yielded in great abundance,
and largu quantities of every variety of
fruit are annually shipped from this
neighborhood. Strawberries havo been
gone for two weeks, nnd peaches are be
ginning to make their appearance.
