Mayor Tiiistlewood is of the opinion
that the ordinance reducing the saioon li
cense has virtually dropped through. He
bases his opinion upon section third
of "Miscellaneous Laws," on page
ITS of the revised ordinance
which says: "Upon there turn of any
ordinance by the mayor, the vote by which
the same was pusscd shall bb kkco.nud
f.iiei) by the council." The previous sec
tion requires that "such ordinances as the
mayor does not approve, he shall return to
the council, with his objections thereto, ia
writing, at the next regular meeting of the
couWil." The mayor has complied with
the latter, but the council has failed to
comply with the former section and hence,
so argues the mayor, the ordinance is a
uouenity, so to speak, because of the coun
cil's tion-rompliancc with the rules as laid
down in the section named. According to
his opinion the ordinance must now again
go through it original course and then be
passed over his second veto before it can
btcouin binding upon our citizens.
lly a special telegram to The Dcli.e
tin, it will be seen that the convention has
had the good sense to nominate Judge
Lcmuu for senator, but in our opinion, it
made a mistake in it other nominations.
We do not know Mr. Buckingham and cm-
not till what his strength may be, but Mr,
Linegar we do know, and while we know
him to bo a whole-souled, generous man,
having, his little faults like other men
warm in his friendships and not
implacable in his enmities, we
believe him to be the weakest candidate
that could have been nominated by the
Democracy and that his defeat is a forgone
conclusion. Tns Bulletin is always will
ing to put its shoulder to the wheel and la
bor zealously for the success of the Demo
cratic ticket, the whole ticket, when the
very best obtainable material is used to
make up that ticket, but it is unwilling to
try to achieve victory with a load, that at
the present outdook, seems to be one that,
strain as the party may, it is beyond its
strength to ca.ty.

to be deprived of their rights to the park
becsue some society or individuals think
tii 'at they cm make a few dollars out of the

law therefore to be reproved for the per
formance of a plain and sworn duty? We
think not. It is a matter of no great con
cern to us whether beer Is sold in the park
or not.bat we believe that the matter might
as weil be looked at in the proper light as
It was known several weeks ago that it
was the intention of Mayor Thistlewood to
veto the liquor ordinance but'since his rea
sons for so doing were not knowu, his mess
age, published ia yesterday's issue, was
read with considerable interest by the gen
eral public. The old ordinance fixes the
saloon license at two hundred dollars per
year and the new one reduces the license to
one hundred and fifty dollars
per year, but provides that for six month-,
or any period less than six mouths, the li
cense shall be one hundred dollars. The
Mayor objects to this latter clause and says :
"I do not believe there would be any oue
who would take out a license on the half
yearly plan, unless they were so reduced in
circumstances as to bo uuable to do other
wise, in which case the law would certainly
be very unjust, working so as to discrimi
nate gainst the poor man and in favor of
tbe rich one; or in other words, the person
who wa unable to pay the whole amount
of the license at the beginning of the year,
would liaye to pay one hundred dollars for
the privilege of doipg what his wealthier
and more fortunate neighbor could do for
fifty." We were present at the meeting of the
council when, previou to its passage, the
ordinance was discussed, aud this same ar
gument was advanced by one of the alder
men opposed to its passage, and in reply
Alderman Patier said that the object of
To the Public:
No matter what may be the excitements or causes that
may stir the stream of civil, military or political life to its
depths, nor how great may be the turmoil or how deep an
interest the public mind may take in these causes, we be
lieve the people who make up this great Yankee nation, are
always ready to recognize any and everything that is to their
personal advantage. Believing this we unhesitatingly
direct the public to the fine stock of summer clothing that
we are now offering for sale at our ''Palace Clothing house."
Our assortment of Alpaca and

are low in price. 'superb in

charging one hundred dollars for six months
or a less time, was to prevent strangers from
opening temporary saloons in the city dur
ing the busy season of the year. There were
a few months in the year, ia which as much
was made by salrxm keepers as in all th
other months of the year combined, an ! he
believed that it would be a protection to
the respectable saloon keepers
who are now doing business here and who
3 ear after year regularly pay their license
into the city treasury. This argument is a
good one and was worthy cf attention, but
it i hardly su:Ecient to entirely annihilate
the srjument that "the ordinance is unjust,
and would work so as to discriminate
against the poor man an J ia favor of the
rich one." Candor com pells us to admit
ia: among fifty licensed saloons there arc
yt a few on whose proprietors the paying
of fifty dollars extra license would be quite
. bar Uhip. But while this is true, it i no
ess true that,as A! lermau P if ier soi l that its
workings would produce beneficial result.

It illy becomes any journal, making
pretentions to respectability, t) persistant!)'
shield criminal and hide from the public
view such mis-deed, to a full knowledge of
which the public is entitled. The Argus
of thi city, although it doubtless enjoys
the support of many respectable people has
during the past six months shown iNelf
unworthy of that support by artfully and
industriously shielding those men who by
their disregard for decency and law deserve
only the severest condemnation of the peo
ple aud the press. Too indolent to enquire
into anything. either right
or wrng, too timid to publish anything
but flattering and uninteresting personal
items without an idea, either original or
stolen this sheet has assumed the con
temptible position, without cause or excuse,
of an apologist for all corrupt men of what
ever stripe, whose misdeed we ha.v felt it
our duty to expose. When some months
ago during the illness of Mr. M. B. Httr
rell we first assumed our present position,
it dawned upon our mind that, for certain
reasons, lewd women were never convicted
in our courts of justice, and we lost no time
in calling the attention of the officer of the
law and the public to the .fact
and pointing out the remedy. While we
were engaged in doing this the Argus saw
fit to uphold the then existing state of af
fair with sophistry and a conglomeration
of senseless words. But notwithstanding we
gained the point we sought and to-day
take to ourself a goodly share of the credit
for the discontinuance of Bill Scott's notori
ous dance house. After having accom
plished this much we exposed tho existence
of a "ring" of men in this city who made a
practice ot recovering stolen property for a
money consideration, but who invari
ably failed to bring the crim
inals to justice. In this, too,
we were met by the opposition
ot the moral Aigus which not in plain,
words, but by insinuations attempted to
throw discredit upon our well founded
statements. But in this instance, too, its ef
forts were useless and to-day it is a matter
of rare occurrence that property is recov
ered without the thief accompanying it.
This, however, Is not all. A few month
ago the gambling house of Axley & Wil
son become a stench in the nostrils of the
public, and being raided by the mayor and
the officers, the proprietors' were
brought into court aud tried, but
Mohair coats, in variety, quli-
quality and all of the very latest
furnishing goods, underwear
thing needed in the clothing
the very lowest fine being as
sessed against theta we found fault with
tiie decision and, although we wore support
ed in this by the evidence in the case and
nine tenths of the people of Cairo, the Ar
gus had the impudence to blunderingly
apologise for the action of the court and
feign the belief that, together with the
costs in the case, the fine was sufficiently
heavy. But undaunted wo did Our whole
duty in the matter. We made the place an
unpopular resort by in exposure of the
eniquitie praticed there and by
warning parent of the danger to which
their sons were exposed in frequenting it;
and toddy the firm of Alley A
Wilson has been dissolved on account of a
l ick of patronage the better man of the
two, Mr. Wilson, retiring.
These are instances in which we have
leen met by the opposition of the Artrus
and they are brought to our mind by the
lust night's remark of that sheet in re
gard to the Sheehan case, which we men
tioned yesterday morning. Our readers
well remember that we stated that a
traveler for a Chicago house had been
robbed of in the neighbor
hoods of one hundred dollars
tiy a white woman in a Fourtn street
bagnio; that the woman was arrested by
OrSccr Sheehan and that shortly after be
irfg imprisoned gie told a colored man
named Clem Young where she Lad secreted
forty-one dollars and after obtaining this
she gave him forty dollar more which shn
had hid b n ia the lining of her clothes.
The negro after obtaining this money
eighty-one dollars in ail visited the resi
dence of Ollicer Sheehan in company of the
acting city jailor and there, in the presence
of both the jailor and the negro (who by
the way is an intelligent man and knows
how to count money) the money was
counted and Otficer Sheehan stated
to these witnesses that eighty
one dollars- was the amount received, but
it appeared fiom the statement of the vic
tim that he had received only seventy-six
dollars fmm the officer, he having told him
that he had recovered only that amount.
We irave publicity to the above because we
had obtained it from a reliable source
ha 1, in fai t, obtained it from the mouths of

Sheehan and the Argus have, the public is
prepared to judge for itself ia the matter.
