fronting the Court House.

Uhltrainp and Nchimtcr.
The acJon of Mayor Winter, that ol
expelling from the police force of the
city, Me.rs. Whltcamp and Schuster, Is
again tie topic or conversation among
many of the citizens. The Mayor seems
detcrmlicil In his efforts to divest these
two gentlemen of their titles as police
officers, while Whltcamp and Schuster
are as fully determined in their purpose
to outwit His Honor, and remain on the
force, vhether the. Mayor wants-them
there ot not. Mayor Winter declares
that ids ilrst effort to expel Messrs.
Whltcamp and Sclnuter was not sustain
ed by the Council for the reason that he
did not tct fortlt what the Aldermen
considered charges sufficiently strong,
or rather charges that could not be sus
tained, while Messrs. iMiltcamp and
fcclnutcr aver that the charges were
false and uutounded. The Mayor now,
however, has become thoroughly worked
up by the refusal of the City Council to
sustain him in his actions, and for several
days has been engaged in taking the afil
invie of a number of citizens,
which, lie .t;rtJi cannot be set
aside as the first eharjro were. Mcesr.
n iiitcamp and Schuster say they arc en-
v..ij igiiorantot the nature of the affida
vits, but arc perfectly willing to meet
them, as they have not, ice their official
career, committed any a. tiat ,.amiot

takes place. The council will how us
next regular monthly meeting three
wccks irom last mgnt, wuen me flavor
will present his affidavits.

Gladney on complaint of a man named
Porter, who claimed that Kocky had rob
bed him of six dollars and twenty cents
while asleep on one ot the wharf-boats.
He was taken before Judge Bird, who,
after hearing the evidence in the case,
held him to ball in the sum or one hun
dred dollars to answer the charge at the
present term or the County Court. He
now languishes In the county jail.
Sarah Buchanan was arrested by
Sargent Wootcu on Monday night for
being drunk and disorderly. His Honor
assessed a fine of five dollars and costs
against her, but she was given a stay of
execution until twelve o'clock last night,
when she promised to "shake" tho town.
This self-samo Sarah was tip before
Judge llross on Moudiy, on a similar
charge, and was sentenced to serve a
term in the calaboose, but was given
a stay, provided '.she would leave.
She says that she was about to comply
with the provisions by which she was
set tree on Monday, but w hile on her way
to tho train on Monday night, she
got drunk and missed the train. She
was politely informed by the officer that
ifshowas caught In Cairo to-day, ho
