Was It According: ToHoyle?
Two weeks ago, the Mayor of
Paris authorized the City Conucil
to receive bids from the city newspapers,
for publishing the annual
report of the different officers. The
Kentuckian, Citizen and News
sent in sealed bids Monday night.
Before these bids were opened a
motion was put and carried by
Councilman Henry Butler, that
that the Council reserve the right
to reject all the bids if it saw
proper. The bids were then opened,
and that- of the Kentuckian
was $50 ; the Citizen $40 ; and the
News $38. 50 ; Councilman Butler
then proposed that all be rejected,
and at the same time announced
that the editor of the Citizen had
verbally made an offer to take the
job at $26. The Mayor then appointed
a committee composed of
Councilman Butler and D. S.
Parrish, to visit the three . offices
the next day, and let the job to the
lowest bidder. On Tuesday afternoon
it came to the ears of che
News, that the job had been let to
the Citizen office, and the copy
had been called for. We at once
called on Parrish, and asked how
that was? that we had been informed
that our bid was the lowest,
and that the Citizen had gotten
the job. He answered that the job
had been let to the Citizen, be
cause a verbal bid had been considered
by himself and Butler. We
protested that an injustice had
been rendered us, by the committee
calling at but the one office for
a second bid, and he allowed us to
make a second bid, claiming then,
that the contract was n't sealed
with the Citizen. We made a second
bid, of $23, and requested the
privilege of another whack, in Case
that this was underbid. That was
the last that we heard of the matter,
until at the Council meeting
that night, when Butler announced
to the new Board that the job
had been let to the Citizen, at
While there was neither business
nor equity in that peculiar way of
doing business, we claim that in
justice to the News, we had a right
to make as many bids as the Citizen,
and the Committee had no
right to presume that we would
not bid it down to a cipher, and
offer a premium too. But, it seems,
as the Citizen opened it's mouth
first, orally, and as a consequence,
that gave the News the last whack
at the pie, even though one thousand
bids were to pass between
the two (the Kentuckian
all the time being totally ignored,)
it was not intended for the
News to receive fair treatment at
the hands of the committee.
If this a fair specimen of the city
government, regarding equity and
business qualifications of its officers,
the News should be heartily
seconded in a call for reformation,
and a knuckling down to a business
that renders justice between
man and man.
At a public sale of Jesse James' effects
the other day, about $10 worth of old

Great Three-Ring Exhibition,
Under the Six Largest Tents
Ever Erected, Coming: in a
This extraordinary combinatoin of Six
Enormous Railroad Shows, and whose
announcements are causing the public to
await its coming in anxious expectation,
will positively reach Paris, Tuesday, Apr.
25th. The single fact that this Colossal
Combination requires four more tents
than any other existing show, will bear
irrefutable testimony to it's comparative
immensity, and to the reflecting mind
comes the enigma How can a combination
so vast, and one requiring, for its
daily expenditure, such a necessarily
enormous outlay of money, ever take
enough money at its doors to make its
linancial success a certainty r Y e give
it up ! But from the nerve its plucky
managers evince in assembling and putting
before the people a show of such unprecedented
magnitude, it would seem
that they are strong in the belief that
there is no limit to public patronage,
when features are piled on features and
novel attractions are massed in such astounding
proportions, as the union of
their various popular amusement ventures
have enabled them to accomplish.
Their entertainment is, from necessity,
a three ring-show ; for the fact must
be patent to eyerybody, that they could
not crowd their many acts into a single
ring during the limited hours devoted to
performancos ; were they to do so it
would require nine hours, instead of
three, in which to give their exhibition.
Then, again, the main pavilion, under
which the ring performances are given, is
so stupendous in its diameter and circumference,
that the objects would appear
diminutive without the aid of an opera
glass, and the spoken words would be
lost in space.
A cotemporary, speaking of the seven
trained stallions, which appear among
the ring attractions, says, "One is a noble
Percheron, and the heaviest performing
horse in the world, yet is graceful
and a- beautiful picture; two are coal-black
(Black Eagle stock), one is an
and one a Gray Eagle. They
are the handsomest horses and do the
most astonishing act ever seen in a ring."
The Colorado cattle are also mentioned
as being perfect in their training, and
the pair of Hippopotami are spoken of
as being the largest and best living specimens
ever exhibited in America. It is
believed that the female will bring forth
young during the present tenting season.
Should such be the case, the trio will
form the most interesting zoological feature
