he went to the open lot between the St.

Mayor Henry Winter, In the cnie of
Samuel 8. Taylor vs. tint Cairo and St.
!oul railroad company and the City of
Cairo, In the circuit court of the United
States for the Southern district of Illinois.
made answer for the City of Cairo deny
ing all the material allegations of plain
tlfTi supplemental bill, and expressly de
claring as follows :
"Defendant (the Clly of Cairo), ex
pressly denies that the pieces of fand
upon which the new levee Is being con
structed l.i said city, and which in said
supplemental bill is designated as New
Ivee streev is one of the public streets
of said city ; but admits, from Informa
tion, that complainant holds the title, as
trustee of the Cairo City Property, of the
lands abutting upon each side ot the said
strip or pieces of land upon which said
levee Is now being erected."
To this emphatic statement the Mayor
made solemn oath, after the council had
obtained the dedication of the strip or
pieces of land spoken of for a public
street. He could not have been ignorant
of the fact that this land had been dedi
cated to the uses of the public as a street
when he made answer for the city, and
It will not to say that his under
standing ot the arrangement was that
the pieces ot laud on -which the levee now
stands were dedicated to the city for
levee purposes only. What object then
had Mayor Winter in view when he
made oath to the above assertion? We
do not charge that the mayor had any
bad object in view, but would like to
know what his purpose was.
The most mysterious part of this affair
is, that Mayor Winter made the answer
in this case without authority. It Is the
duty ot the city attorney to attend to
such matters, but even he would not dare
to make such an answer, or any answer
for the city in any case, without instruc
tions from the cily council ; but Mayor
Winter, without saying a word to the
city council without its knowU
edge made answer in this case
for the city. After making his answer
he kept the fact a profound secret'. He
did not tell the city attorney or report to
the city council, although he had em
ployed In the case eminent lawyers in the
name of the city. When the matter was
brought to the attention of tbc council
by Col. Taylor, aud the council ordered
the city attorney to withdraw the answer,
Mayor Winter told the aldermen that he
intended the answer to be his indivdual
answer and not the city's. But it ap
pears that he signed and swore
to the answer, as the Mayor
of the City of Cairo; and now comes Mr.
Judd, who declares that Messrs. Judd &
WhiieiioiiKc received authority from
Mayor Winter, through Mr. Searles, to
appear lor the city as its solicitors, and
that until that authority is withdrawn
by the city they will not consent to the
withdrawal of the auswer in the cum- made
by the Mayor lor the city, and in which
he swears that New Leec street is not a
It must bo apparent to every citizen
that either Mr. Scurlca ha imposed upon
Mayor Winter and induced him to swear
to an answer he did not understand to be
the answer of tiic city, or Mr. Judd or
Mayor Winter has wandered somewhat
from the truth, or these gentlemen have
woefully uiiauuderstood each other.

The case of 'Jeseu Mahaffcy against the

brought to a close In the circuit court
The suit grew out of the killing ef a
favorite dog belonging to the plaintiff by
Shuster, while the latter was iu the em
ploy of the city as a police constable.
Tbe dog was killed in July, Just after
the mayor issued his orders requiring
dogs to bo tagged and muzzled, and the
officers were daily slaughtering them by
Mabiill'cy, it was shown by the evi

an old Kcntuckian rushed into the ticket
office ot the above named road, and In
quired whether a certain couple whom

search of had Just left the office a
tew minutes before, and that the male
portion of the twain bad purchased tick
ets for himself and lady to Texarkana.
The old man then explained that the
man had been in his employ on a farm
in Kentucky, a shoit distance from this
city, and that the girl, who Is quite
young, Is his adopted daughter. The
two, he said, had ran away aud got mar
ried, and that before going, the hired
man had relieved him of seventy-five dol
lars which he had hid away In a trunk
for safe keeping.
He had followed them across the river
in a skiff and arrived just in time to get a
glimpse ot the boat that bore them and
hit seventy-five dollars out of his reach.
He went back homo- disappointed, but

the Devil will get them both In due lime.
The Great Centennial Boss at Paul
U. Schuh's. R ll-4t.
Kditor Bl'llktin : In this morning's
Bi li.etin, C. Koch calls we a liar and
slanderer, and right here I call him
another, for if there has been any lying
done C. Koch is the one doing it- He
advertises, full stock of leather atd find,
higs for sale, which, this morning, he
admits lie has not got. I Went to his
shop, which, ly the way, lie calls' a
leather store, tor some boot powder, lie
produced lour boxes, three of which
were empty, the fourth containing very
little powder. He did not offer to sel1
me the powder, but said if the empty
boxes would do tne he could sell them.
As to the powder being worth twenty
ceuts, why, it was not worth ten cents.
I can produce bills, as far back as 1871,
to show that boot powder never cost me
more than twenty cents tH:r box, and I
have bought six boxes for seventy-live
cents. It matters not what Mr. Koch
advertises tor sale, his prices are so ex
orbitant that when Cairo shoemakers
wisii to purchase such stock they gener
ally send to other cities and order it
by express, and obtain it much cheaper
than by buying it from Koch. But
strangers from a distance coming here to
buy stock, generally go homo minus
their time and money and without their
stock, and all because Ins prices are so
high. He tays that I lied about the man
wishing to purchase the boot front. I
did not lie, and 1 can give him the name
of the shoemaker mentioned, if it should
become necessary to do to. He says timt
Cairo canuot support a Urst-class leather
store, which Is true if he owus it, for his
charges arc so high that shoemakers c.-.n
not buy from him. He also desires to
sell me several hundred dollars worth of
leather and findings at cost. I can
stick his imaginary stock in my pocket
and uot be able to find it again. If he
has any leather for sale at prices in pro
portion to those charged for his boot pow
der, Cairo shoemakers will be compelled
to go elsewhere to purchase their stock.

In answer to "Alphabetical," in your
last issue, for a remedy for. consumption
in Its first stages, 1 can recommend Dr.
Pierce's "Golden Medical Discovery," it
taken according to directions, for it has
been thoroughly tried in my family, and
the results were glorious. "Alphabetical
must not expect one bottle to do the
work my wife took three bottles before
he could discover any change, but after
the third bottle every dose seemed to
strengthen the lungs, and now she is
well and hearty. It "Alphabetical" will
