the propriety ol having the council selec:
one of its members to act as mayor dur
ing his absence. Alderman Halliday
suggested Aluerman Hittcnhouso ns the .
proper person to fill the position in
Mayor Winter's absence. Alderman
Piittciihou.-e was elected, ot course.
The mayor did not state the object ol his
visit to Washington, but it Is generally
supposed to be in connection with the ap
propriation lor the improvement ot the
Mississippi river at this point.
Alderman Wright thinks the side
walk on Fourteenth street between
Walnut and Cedar streets can be dis
pensed with, and at the meeting ot the
council on Tuesday evening introduced
a resolution ordering it to be torn
down. We do not agree with Alderman
Wright in reference to this sidewalk;
but believe that instead of tearing it
down the council should order it to be
repaired without delay. This walk is
a great convenience to a largo number
ol persons living on the ridge above
Fourteenth and back ol Cedar street,
besides hundreds of colord people living
in the barracks. It will not cost as much
to repair the walk in question and put it
in good condition as it will to tear it
down ami remove the rubbish.
