A Uovil Joke : Krv. Ilr. Thnjer,
From Evansvllle Courier, Aug. 3:-
Ye tenia' evening a rather awkward ac
cident occurred to Uev. Dr. H. 11. J'hayer,
of Vincenncs, owing to deceptive vision
He was hi the parlor of tho St. George
Hotel nnd seeing the window opening
on the piazza, started to go on the de
lightful retreat, rnfortunately for the
reverend gentleman, tlie window was
closed, the gla-s was very clean, and tlie
divine's eye were deceptive. He sup
po-ed the window was up, and he tried
to walk through It. As Dr. Thayer 1
a rather corpulent man, he made a larg
sized opening In the window, and bruised
hi- face a little with the shattered glass
The accident was witnes-ed by a large
number of perrons on the opposite side of
the street, who enjoyed tho exxusiv
oke on the I. I.
On last Saturday night Madam Wiu-
sor was roblKjd of $1!0 by an Inmate of
the house by the name of Hurley, who
lately arrived from Memphis. The clr.
cumstances attending the robbery were
shrouded in mystery, and although the
madam had reasons to believe that Hur
ley was tlie ofleuder, she was unable un
til yesterday to fasten the crime upon
her. It seems that on yesterday Hurley,
thinking that the affair had blown over,
sallied forth and Invested considerably in
dry goods, Ac, and wa negotiating for
the purchase of a watch. This Having
been it-ported to the madam, she prompt
ly reported the affair to ShcrilV Irvin
and Deputy Sheriff John Cain, who took
Hurley in cutody and found the money
upon her jierson. When cornered she
acknowledged her guilt, aud Is now con
fined in the county jail awaiting her
trial, which will take place in a few days

can do this thing?
It I reported tint Mayor Winter and
Mar-hal Williams have kissed and made
up, and now everything is lovely nnd the
goose It hangeth high.
We have ween told thnt one of our
policemen one of the night policemen
has been occasionally putting on a stil
stltute. Where do policemen find an
thorlty for the substitute business?
Marshal Williams was nbent with
circus twenty-two days. The Council
paid him his salary for the time. We be
llcve the Council should have done no
such thing. Mar-hal Williams had
right to go away from the city with the
circus, but he wns not entitled to salary
for the. time he was :th-cnt.
Schuster was an otliccr,
And Jacky he was mayor ;
And Jacky thought thatSchu.-ter.hc
Wasn't acting fair.
So Jack removed Billy Schuster,
And the council It said : "Nay,"
And so the wrangle rages
And the devil is to pay.

very well written, in a legible hand, but
fearfully "windy" in other words,
Jackie got a litttle mad
And Jackie cut oil" Freddy's head.
"This will not do, Ibis will not do,"
Brave Tommy unto Jaekh: said ;
"It will," said Jack ; "It won't," said
And then they wrangled mightily.
"I'll see Patlcr and Saup aud TJlis,
And, mark me, nlso, Wright I'll see,"
Jack unto Tom then wnrmly said;
But Tom unmindful then nnd there
Took up and put on Freddy's head."
The Council voted to pay Whitcamp
and Schuster for the time they were out
of olllce by the romoval ot the Mayor.
The Council had no rljilit to do so. The
Mayor has authority to rtmoce. any up
pointed olllcer from olllce when In hi;
opinion tho interests of the city require
such removal, and the removal deprives
the removed olllcer of any right to re
ceive pay tor the time he was out of of
fice, even If the Council, when the Mayor
states his reasons for the removal, votes
that they are not sufficient.
When Mayor Winter ruled Alderman
Hidliday's Inveitlgatlng report out of or
der, he did not, if we understood him,
desire to sny that ho wished no Investiga
tion of the charges made by him ngalnst
Messrs. Whitcamp nud Sinister, but slm
ply that he believed the Mayor's Bill
gave him the right of removal for nny
cause that in m.i opinion was suiucieut,
aud thnt all the Council could do was to
pass upon the sutllclciicy of the causes
reported by him to thnt body. We have
nnd do yet hold the opinion, thnt the
Council may Investigate to a-scerUun
whether the causes nre sulliclent, but
there are many reasons to believe that
the Mayor may lie right in his con
structlon of the law.
"One Five Feet Under Water" calls
attention to the fact thnt the slpc water
has driven ills stock out of the
stables on to the commons and that the
policemen of the city nro impound
lug It. Marshal Williams, It
will tdo be observed, gives
these unfortuimtcs fair warning
that the impounding process is to go on.
We arc much in favor ol tho stock ordi
nance. Tho owner ol a horse has no
right to let him run at large, but in a
time like this, when tlie water has In
vaded many of the stables of tho city,
tho ordlnnnco should not ho harshly en
forced. , Maybe tho Mayor, If he would
try, might Induce the Marshal to sus
pend the exercise of his energies on
loose-horse owners until the Hoods are
Wc ara lulorincd that tlie officers of
tho city permitted tlie circus that Marshal
Williams has been traveling with lor
sotno time, to exhibit in this city without
paying license that a part of tho license
for one exhibition was collected and not
ti cent for the other exhibitions. It may

Wo tire n circus man. hut ns long ns tlie
ordinances require circuses .to pay 11
censes, the officers of the city should

tribute the license money due the city
from the Aymnr circus to Sell Howell.
