This Un new style of picture now be
ing produced by Win. Winter, tin rtlt,
ol this city. These pictures arc creating
mttoli interest ill all the principal Eastern
nntl Western cities, being altogether new.
They are unlike photographs, being
raised anil beautifully enameled over the
entire mil lace, foil In tone, but distinct In
tlie lights and shades. No one who sees
them fulls toadinlre them, or to give the
iirtUt an order. We have been chowii a
number of picture of well-known ladles
Mid gentlemen of the elty, and have no
hesitation In pronouncing them perfectly
splendid. We would therefore advice all
Mho take interest in such inattrr or de

ills gallery and examine his work in this
new branch of the shadow-capturing art.

Thomas Dawson was up before Judge
Mrd yesterday for raMng a disturbance
with John Mirk. Thomas attributes
Mirk's hostility toward him to the fact
that lie would not sell potatoes for two
bits a bushel, when they were worth
more. Thomas and John are running
opposition to eaeli other In felling
country produce from wagons. Thomas
was lined live dollars and costs.
Ourfccnior lias just found out, since
he, in company with Judge Mrd and .Mr.
Satford paid the public schools a visit,
how totally Ignorant lie Is. He declares
that it he ever delivers another lecture,
lie will take for his subject, "Education
from an ignorant man's standpoint." He
lias beenndyl-ed not to attempt such nn
address, as other people, as well as him
self, would then have an opportunity of
seeing how dumb he really is.
"Citizen," lu a card published to-day,
suggests that hereafter tlie ladies and
gentlemen who lecture before tho Library
Association, announce through the pa
pers their subjects. He says he knows
of severa! who would have attended
Prof. Alvord's lecture had they known
his subject was to have been "Teleg
raphy." Wc alo think it will be money
lu tlie purse ot the as.-oeutlon to make
known the subjects of lectures.
And now the question arise, will the
Cairo it Vlncennes railroad company
comply witlt the ordinance parsed by the
council on Tuesday night, prohibiting
them lrom Using steam on certain por
tions of their track between the hours of
7 a. m. and 0 p. m ? It Is said by parties
who are well pocted as regard? the char
ter of the company, that the voteeat lor
the passage of the ordinance was not suf-
llelent in number to compel them to put
aside steam power.
Wc know tlie Council is as wNe a
there is any pressing necessity that a
Council should be; but we can't
believe that even our Council can
adopt an ordinance in tho manner It Is
said the Council did adopt what Is called
the steam motive ordinance. The vote
iiiioii tills ordance. If any vote was taken
upon it, uml the record docs not show
that such a vote was ever taken, stood,
upon a call of the yeas and nays. 5 for to
fi against. The Mayor voted, and thus,
it Is claimed, the ordinance was adopted.
But tlie Mayor had no right to vote.
Tlie charter provide, that "the concur
rence of a majority of all the members
elected in the city council" shall be nec
essary to the passage of an ordinance.
The Mayor Is not u member of the City
Council In tlie sense in which It is u.-ed
In this provision of the charter. It
certainly was not the intention or the
law-makers to give lo tlie .Mayor tlie veto
power and a vote upon the ordinances
subject to veto. Thu legislature never
intended to say to the Mayor: "You
may vote for or against an ordinance. If
you vote against an ordinance, and it is
carried, you may veto it, and then it
must be passed by a vote of two-thirds of
all the members elected to the City Coun
cil, and you must be counted as a mem
ber hi determining how many members
1 of the Council constitute two-thirds."
The construction Mayor Winter ami Mr.
Linegar, his legal adviser, have put upon
the charter goes to this extent. We nre
satisfied this construction will not stand,
anil that the bill for "the steam motive
power ordinance." was defeated, not
passed, at tlie last meeting of tlie City
Eniroit Bi!lm:tin : Thu writer would
suggest to tho managers of tho lectures
now being given lu this city for the pur
noo of establishing a public library, that
tho subjects be announced of those yet to
bo delivered. Wo tiro led to oiler tills
suggestion from tlie fact that several of
our Actpmlntuuces, who do not hold sea
son tickets, and who did not intend to bo
present at any of thu lectures, were In
dnced to attend thoso that havo
taken place on learning of their
sitbieets. Wo know of several
parties who would havo put hi an appear
unco at Prof. Alvord's lecture had they
known that ho was to have spoueu on

lects tiro aiinouneed through tho columns
ot the dally papers, the society, under
whose auspices tho lectures aro being
delivered, will put money In Us purse.
