ing in their local columns e ver since it was

Illinois bus certainly been a great helper
of the reform movement, and in the dis

At 6" o'clock Tuesday evening the
Fourth wnrd special election polls were
closed. The three hundred and two tickets
were counted, the poll bouk duly certified
and delivered to the city clerk by half past
seven. An hour later the citv council had
canvassed the returns and declared Mr,
James Kynastou the duly elected alderman
for the Fourth ward to fill out the unex
pired term of alderman Foley, resigned.
This we call dispatching business with a
rush; but was all formal and, as one of the
alderman remarked "will stick, of course."
The intelligence that went abroad in
Pulaski county, yesterday morning, that
Lew. Smith, the States Attorney for that
county, had during the tnght before, died
at his own hands, created a profound sensa
tion. Young Smith was a son of Judge
H. M. Smith. He was born in Pulaski
county, was carefully educated and finally
admitted to the bar. He wis a young mini
of excellent parts, eminently social, warm
hearted and impulsive, and had, to all ap
pearances, a brilliant future before him.
But on the threshold of a successful pro
fessional career he yielded to the allure
ments of the w ine cup. The habit arew
upon him, and at last held him ns In tho
grip of a giant. He struggled hard to free
himself, and for a season he mustered the
terrible appetite, but he could not. it seems,
with all the encouragement friends gave
him, and by the most determined exercise
of his own will, maintain the mastery.
Less than a week ago he was in this city.
On Tuesday he visited the town of Ullin,
and stopped with Joe Tupprich. He ob
tained breakfast, dinner and supper with
Tupprich and gave notice wf u purpose, to
remain all night. During the day he vis
ited Dr. dimes, and secured a small dose
of morphine to quiet his nerves and brace
him up, an.l then asked how many grains
of the drug it would require to kill a man.
Obtaining the desired information, hi' left
the Doctor's ntlice, When he obtained Ihe
poison or how, is not known. During
Tuesday night ho died, and all the evi
deuce went to show that lie died of an
over-doM- f morphine. These particulars
we obtained iu an indirect manner, and we
do not therefore, vouch for their entire
credibility, but tin main fad lsundeuiable,

equitable one under nil the circumstances,

willing to meet. I therefore trust, gentle
men, that you will labor earnestly to

that an eia ol prosperity willdawn upon our

We have met together, this evening, in i
our official capacity to assume the impor- ,

us by our fellow citizens.

and I avail myself of the op

our well-being, prosperity and happincs- as
Our natural advantages of location, our
river and railroad facilities, and the com
mercial enterprise of our people have much
to do with the growth and prosperity of our
city; yet I take it that none or all of these
things can exercise so much influence upon
that which tends to make us prosper, as the
character and administration of our local or
If you whose duty it is to enact the laws
and ordinances of the city, and those to
whom their execution is entrusted,
are capable and honest, the govern
ment will command the respect and con
fidence of not only its own citizens, but
from all without who may be brought in
contact with it.
The citizen will feel that his interest and
the interest of the city will not be retard

exercised with discretion, honesty and im
partiality, local government becomes a

If the iaws and ordinances of the city.
adopted for the government and protection
of its citizens, are wise and command their
respect and approval, they should be faith

The last monthly statement of the city
treasurer shows a balance on hand of
twenty-two thousand six hundred and sixty
two dollars and thirteen cents. A largo
portion nf this amount will be needed to
pay the interest on the new bonds of the
city, as provided in the ordinance making
the annual appropriations.
It is well known to you till that the old
bonded debt of the city had assumed pro
portions, believed by many, to be in excess
of our ability to pay, and the representa
tives of the city had acting on that belief
refused to pay either principal or inter
est or nny portion of it.
It is also known to you Hint the city has,
acting in conformity to an election held
June 27th, A. I). 17S, and by authority of

issued its bonds of the value of two bun
dred and seventy thousand dollurs, bearing
interest, payable semi-annually, nt the rate
of six per cent! The first bonds falling due
in four years from July 1st, A. D. 1S7s, and
distributed so that all shall fall due and be
paid within twenty years.
These bonds are now in the hands of (he
finance committee, to be exchanged for the
old bonds now outstanding, ami dm wing a

In any improvement that you shall onh-r
upon the streets 1 think that streets that are
below what is known as Nipe water" should
have their share of the annual appropria
tion for street purposes expended on them.
The filling can now be done vcrv rh'-aply.
The lal or and teaming can be done by our
own citizens, and while it will tend to give
labor its needed employment, it will be

be improved by cutting down: Using the
superfluous earth in tilling some of the low

This should also command i.nir careful
attention. The slough in the north part of
the city ought, iu mv judgncnt. to be
drained: but I do not think it wuld be
best to construct another sewer or opening
through the levee it the drainage could ,(.
effected in any other way. My opinion is
that it could be etl'ected as well itnd at less
expense by the construction))!' ii tile drain
along Commercial avenue sons to connect
with the sewer nt Thiiteith street. This,
however, could be better determined by a
survey made by some competem i-nginei-r.
The present plan of building sidewalks
by special assessment do"s not beem to
work as well as the trainers of the law evi
dently intended that it should.
The assessment ngaiust the property for
special improvement is paid by some and
neglected or refused by others, which
makes an inequality that mine means
should be sought to remedy.
There certainly can be no objections to
the plan nf making local improvements by
special assessment, if the provision can be
made to bear alike upon all the property
benefited: but there should be some better
means of collecting this assessment or else
