Dogs are a question that gives to) urn-
nWpl atatctmett mor trouble than the
flnaikes give to the great men now sw eat
ing for the small sum of $',000 11 year at
Washington. Dogs are a stumbling
block for aldermen, and the dogs of
Cairo are something Mayor Winter and
hi aldermen can't get over. We have
now, without exaggeration, a thousand
d"gs to the square foot, and not one in
every half million Is worth a nlckle. At
night, these curs make the whole city
vocal Willi their l arki, oiul wc defy the
olilest man in America to sleep while

other administrations, dog the surplus
dogs- have Im en killed, but under Mayor
Winter's administration they are ten
derly caret! for. Somebody told the
Mayor that the poor men of the city
elected him, and that all poor men wish
to keep dogs and hojrs. The mayor has
tliereforc become the particular champ
ion rt r1oj. and porkef. I'nder the
gallant leadership of Alderman Wilcox,
the council took isue with Mayor Win
ter on the hog question, and ilclt.ated
him ; but on the dog question he remains
triumphant. Like a .wall of lire so to
speak he stands Im: tween death and .the
dogs, who should bedogbned thankful to
him. Nothing can bend him, we regret
to say. A muuit ipnl Tilden he has
said : "JJtlorm is necessary in the mat
ter ot dogs, and therefore not a dog shall
