A rumor prev.iilotl In Chicago Hint
Mayor Colvln would appoint Mr. llculng
chief of police of that city. The Timet''
say that there h no tbtnulntlon tor the
report, and that pitch an appointment
would le an Insult to every reputable cit

which collided with another vessel and

the news of the destruction of the steamer

that they think he would be all available

therefore John, the prize fighter, holds
the edge on the hero. From the rapid
strides Morrlssey lias made within thn
past few years there is no 'telling where
be will wind up. In the prize ring, as a
gambler, and ui a politician lie has made
Mississippi, in her hour of victory, is
modest. Her leading journal, the Vicks
burg Herald, in referring to the late tri
umlh, uses the lollowlng patriotic and
sensible language : "All the wealth nntl
intelligence oi the State has ever been
ours, and now wc havo obtained the
power. Let us ue it wisely, for 'peace
hath her victories no less renowned than
war.' Wc are now responsible that Mis
sissippi pursues the path of peace and
prosperity. She has again emerged from
darkness, so let the glorious light ot her
redemption shed its effulgence over all
the whites and blacks, that all may live
in harmony, nud be blessed with content
ment and prosperity. Then bhall we

. , J li In lliu speeiflentlons for the
inildlnc nt' this proposed levee, It Hinted
uieie is to lie n henna of 00 feet from thu

?!t.f,'om 0U1' citizens tho equal cliuuco to
uid to do this work with Kcniners nir.ilnst
owners ot excavHtors. In (nnvr4uiir.n
with various contractors nud engineer,
they all asem, without tear of successful
contradiction, that n bermc of 10 or 20
feet Is Just a good as one , ot CO feet.
Tho object of a bcrine nt all, is, In case
the lovee is IncrenAd In width they would,
have h solid foundation to build upon.
There being 75,000 yards of earth In the
levee, the extra cost between n
20 foot benne mid n SO foot
one Is from 3 to Scents per yard. Take
the smallest esthnati 3 cents and it
makes a total cot of twenty-two hun
dred and lllty dollars. Sow with the
present condition of our lliiancu.i, this is
an item, ami should bo well weighed.
Another item I would call youratteiitlun
to Is that part of the speclllcatlous
wherein It States the measurement bv the
engineer shall tie binding. This seems
to tnu lo bu arbitrary, to say nothing
more, and should bu so amended a to
read "that If tin ineaui'eiuent made by
the engineer employed by thu city Is not
satisfactory, the contractor may employ
nt his own expense an engineer,
lu connection with the city's engineer,
and that their measurement, as tnav be
agreed Upon, shall be thu lliialc.
I would therelore recommend the
