Ex-City Treasurer Blake wants to be
paid a commission on the levee money
collected by him. The council is not in
clined to accommodate- him. Aldermen
Hitteuhoiife and M Gaulcy say : ' Every
other city ofllcer worked for nothing on
the new levee, and therefore Mr. Blake
fhould not pe paid," Alderman Parker
says : "That l not fair talk. Pay the
man." The council, in order to have
time to ponder upon the weighty sub
ject, said: "lA-t the thing be put upon
the table, and I will think about it a
month or two."

Mollie Bailey is a colored woman not
wholly a stranger to the pcopb'of Cairo.
She came to Cairo from South America
with A) mar's eirens. She has traveled
and is up to snufl'. She had been here
but a short time when flu: appropriated
to her own use a lot of clothing Im lotiir-
ing to a servant at the Ht, Ontrlci) hotul,
and lor this crime was sentenced to im
prisonment in the county jail. Mollie
was discharged from cutody recently,
and It was hoped had turned from the
paths of wickedness. But the devil got
the upper hand of her again on Monday,
and she made her way to the residence
ol State's Attorney Mulkey, where she-
took possession of a lot ol Mrs. Mill
key's clothing and leU. She was ar
retted, and was made todiigorge not only
what she had taken from the house of
Mr. Mulkey, but also a lot of ladies'
wearing apparel and b-d clothing, the
property ol Mrs. Henry Elliott. She
was lodged In the county jail and will
no doubt sojourn for a tine at Joliet.

The mayor, in his 'nijular communi

dinance under which the health ofllcer
wa.i appointed gives bin authority to

at his pleasure. But the mayor's bill
was passed subsequent to the old ordi
nance, and that bill says : tie mayor may
remove any appointed Mliecr, but he
must report his reasons fir such removal
to the council, and iC twMhirds of the
aldermen disapprovsthe rrmovil, the of
ficer shall be restored to his olliee.
Didn't the State law modficd the ordi
nance? But how about thtnc w ordinance?
It does not give the tnayir authority to
remove at his pleasure.' Mayor Winter
says: "That ordinaioe hai not
been published and therfore is not in
lorce." But the chartersays that only

Caiko, Ills., June 13th, 1870.
To the City Council of the t ity of Cirot
Gk.mxkmi n : I did, on the 12th day
of June, 1S7C, at C o'clock p.m., remove
William Brown, health officer. The or
dinance, No. 79, Section 2, creating this
omce provides that he shall "hold his
oflloe during the pleasure of the Mai or,"
and whenever the Mavor chose to dis
pense with the services" of the health ofll
cer that is the end ol his term.
He is not a i rm.iiient otlicer nnd the
ordinance did not intend he should b;
aud when dismissed by Ihe Mavor he
cannot be reinstated by t ie council. Ihe
otlice being a temporary one subject to
the pleasure ol the Mavor.
Ihe Mavor by this ordinance Is made
the judge of the necessity of a health
officer. The city was never healthier
than at present. We have no contagious
disease, and in my judgment there is no
necessity lor a health officer. Whenever
an emergency arises lor a health officer 1
will appoint one under the ordinance.
This city cannot afford to nav un
necessary oflirs. We must economize
at every point, and I still Insist that the
money pan lor unnecessary officers had
much better lie expended In cleansing
our streets and imorovins the drainnce
ol the city, w hich, when done, will add
permanently 10 the health of the city.
The ordinance defining the duties of
the city marshal, makes it his duty to
attend to all the duties that it would be
possitiie lor a health officer now to per
form, and which he is now diligently
performing, and to the satisfaction of a
majority of the citizens. Furthermore,
upon conversatiofi with the nlivsli-ian
of the city, they all express the opinion

Uilerman Halliday moved to refer
the Mavor's communication to tne
ioard ol Health with instructions
U report at au adjoin mil meeting one
wtk from to-night. Alderman Halli-
'liy spoke at length In support
ot Im motion, combatting the
ground t.Jkon by the Mayor in his
communication, quoting from the
mayor's bill and the rvi.scd ordinances
of I ho city, as sustaining his position
that the Mayor cannot discharge au ap
Doilited officer of the oily without the
consent of Ihe Council, and that the
Council has the right and power to ro-in
state any upointed otlicer discharged by
the Mayor, il, in its judgment, bis rea
sons for discharging such officer are in
sufficient, or the interests of the city re
quire his retentiou iu otlice.
The chair replied to Alderman Haiti
day's remarks, reallliining the Mayor'
right to remove the health officer at hi
pleasure, under authority of Ordinance
No. 79. He also claimed that the revised
ordinances were not yet In e fleet and did
not govern his conduct. That he had
upon a former occasion been requested
bv the Council to remoe the health
officer, at a time when lie (the Mayor
considered his services neeessair. and
that he bad declined to remove him
That his only motive now in removing
Mr. Brown was a desire to economize, as
he had no charges to make against him
and that he should continue to discharge
him as 01 u n as he waa reinstated by thu
