for tools, stock, manure, etc. In 1807 they
had long previously paid the loan; had in
creased their shareholders from fifteen to
twenty, and the amount of hired land from
sixty to one hundred and thirty acres, for
which they paid $1,000 u year. The
farm was managed by a commit t.'c of-four,
chosen by ballot, a portion going out every
year. The ISishop found the land in ad
mirable order, and the animals and poultry
in exeellent condition. In 1SV1 .Mr. (lur

started thirty chosen men on a second co

To the Honorable Mayor and City Council of Cairo:

"Resolved. That the authorities of the

requested to give assurance that they will
co-operate with this association in employ
ing every legal means of contest and de
fence in resisting the payment of either
principal or interest of any bond or lmnds
of the city or county, not in and covered by
the funding arrangement which the voters
of the city of Cairo are asked to pass upon
at the election to be held for that purpose
on the 27th day of June, 1878; and to give
further assurance that thf' wiU provide the
funds to pay all reasonable expenses that

Cairo, 111., June 8. 1878.
On motion of Alderman Ilalliday, the
communication was received and ordered
Alderman Ilalliday introduced the fol
lowing preamble and resolutions :
Whereas. Negotiations are in progress
looking to the ad justment of the bended in
debtedness of tiie citv, bv an issue of new
iKmds to the amount of liftv (50 1 per
cent of the aggregate of the principal and
overdue and unpaid interest ot the prcv.-nt
outstanding bonds, said new bonds to bear
interest at the rate of six ("ii per cent per
aniiumn, and to be payable in full in
twenty 1 20 1 years, tin; interest above on
said ii"W bunds to be payable for four
years and such per centage of principal to
lie paid thereafter semi-annually in ad
dition as will pay the principal and interest
in full within the specified time, and
Whereas, In the opinion of the council,
it would be an impossibility for the city
to pay the principal and interest of the out
standing bonds, according to their term",
and that a compliance with the agreements
of the new bonds would b tii much as tax
pavrrs could respond to: thoivfiup,
R'sol veil. That thearrangetneiitv proposed
by the Funding Association of tlie United
Stat. s. above alluded to and set out more
fully in a report lately published by the
tax-payer's association of the city and
county, should in the opinion of this coun
cil be adopted and that voters be recom
mended to cast their V ites in favor of it at
the election to be held on June 27th, in
stant. Resolved, That if said adjustment of the
bonded indebtedness of the city is author
ized by a vote of the pcopli! on 27th inst.,
that this council will use every ciertion to
carry it out in good faith, and will also
adopt every proper measure to prevent the
payment of any portion of the principal
or interest of tin- bonded indebtedness of
the city, except as required by the terms of
the adjustment suggested Icy the funding
association above allud"d to. and that this
council will contribute a reasonable amount
of the i xpelises required for a contest with
tlee holders of the pro-ont outstanding

i.m 'tidit'g s-'ctioii numliered H, of chapter
numbered 1"i of the r vised ordinances of
j Unt U hrk''hUiW "'.v objeetions
Si-c-tion y of said ordinance smtght to Ik;
modified by this ordinance Is one intended
to put the street occupied and ud by rail
roads in good condition for public vttse
and to make the use by railroads ua little
burthen upon' the public as poniblc. J
thilik the ordinance sought to bo fcpcalod.
tlie Ifst one for the public.
It has been held by our circuit court !u
two instances to be legal, and the only
question to If decided is whether flic modi
fication of the ordinance will be for the
public good; if the modification is for the
public good, it should bo made; if it is for
the benefit of the railroads and docs not
benefit the public, this ordinance should not
become a law.
The ordinance v ider consideration sub
stitutes gravel instead of plank between
crossings, but retain plank at the cross
ings; now if the planking is best for the
the street at the crossings, surely it would
be better for the streets to have the plank
between the crossings.
It has been contended that section 8
of the proposed ordinance to be amended is
impracticable. If tlie planking can be done
at the crossings, why is it iinpraticable to
extend it to the whole s. -eet; It may and
probably will be less expensive with the
railroads to comply with the ordinance
than the one to be modified, but it certain
ly would not bo so good lor (he public, or
this ordinance would have been made ap
plicable to the crossings also. Then it
must be clear that this ordinance will be
hett"r for the railroads than the one now iu
existence, but not so good for the public.
I am therefore of the opinion that this
ordinance should be allowed to remain us
it is, and should be enforced if not com
plied w ith by tin- railroads.
For tlie foregoi ng reasons, I return the
the ordinance without any signature.
Alderman l.'alliday moved a reconsidera
tion af the vote by which the ordinancewas
adopted. Motion carried.
Whereupon Alderman Halliday moved
that further action on the message and or
dinance lie deferred until the first Tuesday
iu July. Motion carried.

STRANGE CASE OF HYDROPHOBIA.
The Bridgeport (Conn.) Standard of Tues
day evening says: "Almtit six years ago
Henry B. Banks, of Easton, killed his dog.
supposing him to be mad. At the time
there was no reason to suppose the dog had
bitten any member of the family. Last
Sunday the daughter of Mr Banks, aged
was seized with hydrophobic symptoms,
and the disease rapidly develojied until
Sunday evening, when le-r sufferings wit
awful to witness. Nothing could done
to alleviate lwr tortures. At last m-counts
she was still alive. As the little girl l.a
tiever been expo--d to 11 rabid dog except
the one killed six years ago. it is supposed
by her friends that the disease mut hav
developed from some slight bite or scratch
r'-ceived then, so slight in tact that it wa
never noticed I'V atlV one, or cointiiiiill"l of
