The proposition to increase the sal
ary of the mayor does not meet with much
tavor ; and the members of the council
who voted against the increase are sus

this Is a poor time to talk about Increas
ing salaries, when the city is really tin
able to raise revenue sulllcicnt to pay the
salaries now allowed. The man who
attempts to run for olllco on the high
salary istie will find that his supporters

The case ot M rs. Geo. Brittou ,a colored

Monday next. This Is a case under the

ago, Mrs. Brit ton boarded the steamer
Belle Memphis at the wharl in this city,
and paid her passage to Cape Girardeau.
On the way she was refused cabin accom
modations, and ordered to go on the
deck. This Is the plaintiff's story. The
officers of the boat say they were unable
to make room for Mrs. Brittou, every
stateroom on the boat having been en
gaged before she applied for passage;
that they will be able to prove this by a
number of white persons who had pre i
ously applied lor passage, but whom the
boat could not accommodate. John Giad-
ney and wife, John Bedford, and several
other persons have been subpjenaed as
witnesses, and will start tor Spriogticld

CITT ATTORNEY'S RFrORT.
The following report from the city at
torney was read :
To the Honorable, the Mayor anil City Council
of oily of Cairo i
G kntlf.mex In reference to the Cairo
and Vincennes railroad matter permit me
to say that all the questions, or the mate
rial ones contained in the resolution of
late date, were adverted to In the case of
"the People, etc., vs. tho Cairo and Vin
cennes Railroad Co." pending In the cir
cuit court, and will be undoubtedly
passed upon by Judge Baker In render
ing his decision In that case.
Any further steps on my part would be

suit. Respectfully, II. II. Black,
THE SKW LKVF.R.
Alderman Wright from tho committee
on streets reported that the committee
had concluded to complete the new levee
and to that end had determined to employ
teams and laborers, and a foreman, and
commence operations at once. A nicet
of the committee was arranged to take
place yesterday morning, at which aTl
preliminaries were to be arrainged.
coi i.ux't m.roitT.
The finance committee and the com
mlttcc on police and 'jail, were not ready
to report on matters previously relerred
to them and asked for further time,
which w as granted.
AFTER THE CITY ATIOIINKY.
Alderman Patler went back to the city
attorney's report, and said sometime ago
the attorney promised that he would take
action In the matter of the railroad ; but
now, after two or three months, or per
haps longer, he comes in and saya lie Is
not ready. It seemed to him (Patler)
that tlie city attorney did not want to
take any further steps hi the matter.
Alderman Lancaster thought the coun
cil had not taken proper action on the
report; and moved a reconsideration o
the vote by which the report was received.
The vote was reconsidered. Alderman
Lancaster moved to refer the report back
to the city attoriey fur further and more
definite information on the subject.
WHY DID YOU DO IT, HK.VRY ?
Alderman Halliday offered a resolution
calling upon the mayor far a statement
of his reasons for releasing from impris
onment iu the city jail one Harry Aiken,
a mulatto, arrested by Chief of Police
Gossrnan on a charge of vagrancy, and
committed by Judge Kross on the
14th ot November to litty-two days In the
Alderman Halliday said he supposed
the mayor had good reasons for his ac
tion in the matter ; but it had been rep
resented to him that the man Aiken was
a bad character. Aiken was arrested on
a charge of vagrancy, and was taken be
fore 3 udge Bros for a hearing, by whom
he was lined one hundred dollars and
ordered to tho city jail for fifty-two
days. Aiken refused to lake a stay ol
execution on condition that he would
leaye the city, and asserted that he could
get out of jail without leaving town ;
and that tin city jailer's report showed
that Aiken had been released after two
days In .the jail. Alderman Halliday
said complaints bad been mado to him
about the matter, and he thought it was
clue to the public that the matter should
be explained. He had no doubt the
mayor could give a satisfactory reason
lor his action in the matter.
The mayor said he did not remember
releasing any such person as Aiken ; but
if he had released eujIi a man he had a
memorandum of his reasons for doing so
and would look into the matter.
AId?rmaii Uallulay said if the mayor
did not waut tho resolution to go on rec
ord, he (Halliday) would not insist ou it
The mayor said he had no objection to
the resolution going on the record, ilo
ould explain all his acts.
The resolution was then withdrawn
with tlie understanding that the mayor
present a report, giving his reasons for
his action in the matter at the next meet
ing of the council.
ANCASTF.R WANTS TO - INC1!KAR T1IK
MA tOU'.S SALARY.
Alderman Lancaster thought as it was
drawing near the timo for the election of
a new mayor, now would be a good time
to lix the salary ot that olllco. The pres
ent salary was too small, aud did not pay
the mayor for his trouble. The mayor
ou-'lit to receive a salary that would
ustily him In giving more tune and atten
tion to the atlairs of the city. He sent
the following resolution to the clerk's
desk and had it read :
Jlesolrtd : That the ordinance com
mittee' be instructed to prepare an
amendment to thu revised, ordinances
providing that the salary ot the mayor
bit liicreascu to one tnousunn uouars per
annum, to take eil'cct utter the expiration
of thu term ot the present incumbent,
and report said ordinance to the council
ut its next meeting.
iMdcrmaii Wright said he was on the
ordinance committee when tho salaries
were reduced ; he was in favor of the re-
duction then and was opposed to ruWng
the salary now. lie would vote against
the resolution. The man that was not
willing to serve the city at the present
salary, fehould not seek the mayor's ottlce.
Alderman Halliday said IT tho people
ot Cairo wanted a fancy mayor a real,
llrst-clasa articlu of mayor, it would take
more than one thousand dollars to pro
cure such an article.
Alderman Patler thought one thousand
dollar was small compensation lor the
uiaycr. He thought the city ought to
pay the mayor a salary that would lus
tily that officer in keeping an office where
he could be found and consulted by com
mittees ot the council, and by strangers
aud citizens who might have hicine'
with blin. 11' u in Juvor of the in
crease and would vot lor the resolu
tion. Aid. Wright thought It aldermen
could afford to serve tl city for nothing,
the mayor could terve lor I SOU a year.
Aid. Halliday did not believe that an
Increase of $."i00 In tho mayor's salary
would Induce anyone to ran for the
office. The present salary just about
covered the expenses ol the office that
Is it just about paid back what It cost the
mayor In the course of a year. He did
not think the city could afford to pay the
mayor a larger salary, and did not be
lieve the people would sanction the pro
posed Increase. He would vote against
raising the salary at this time.
jneyorc ontue resolution was then
taken, and the resolution was defeated,
Ayes Lancaster, McGauley and Pa
