The cow nuisance is making itself felt
in the"neicrhborhood of Tenth street. Two
or more cows with two or more young
calves, by their outrageous bawling night
and day,make the slcnp of the sleepers a pro
tracted nightmare, and those who are kept
awake wish they bad never been born. If
there is anything that would call out a peti
tion, to the city council, several yards long;
praying for an edict and its enforcement
against these horned brutes, it is a cow
with a mezzo-soprano voice who never eats,
sleeps or rests, nor lets, anything else sleep
within a mile of her.
Sunday seems to have been an unusu
ally busy day with the officers, which does
not speak well for the city. Men who are
employed during every week day seem to
allow their pent up feelings full sway on
the seventh day when they ought of right
to take rest pleasant recreation ana
attend church and Sunday school.
Their flow of spirit is par
donable, of course, but when they over
step the bounds set by law and common
decency they are giving therLBclves and the
city a bad name, besides injuring society in
general, either of which things they have
no right to do. But where's the use in
moralizing and giving good advice Not
one Among the drunken and disorderly
crowd whose names appear upon yester
day's police docket, was ignorant
ot the character of bis crime
at the time he or she committed it and
wheti men and woman rush into an open
pit with their eyes opon and a clear brain,
disregarding even the teachings of their
youth and the warnings of thoir friends,
they hardly deserve anything and certainly
will not heed anything but stern law and
enough ot it, too, This, it is gralitying to
uote, the officers and courts of the city
are giving them in good, round doses.
An item appeared in the St. Louis
Globe-Democrat ot Friday or Saturday last
week which stated that the authorities of
East St. Louis were very indignant over the
action of tho Cairo authorities in sending an
invalid, who was about to die in tho hos
pital here, to East St. Louis, whore he died
add was disposed of at the expense of that
city. Tbe charge, being untrue in every
particular, is of sufficient importance to
ustify a firm denial oven at
thi. late day. Tho sick man
referred to was a negro, giving his name as
Robert Winslow, who was found in the
streets of East Bt. Louis, in the last stages
of an incurable disease Ho was takcu to
the hospital, where, it appears, lie told the
attendants that he had been iu tho hospital
In this city, and when it was tound that he
could not recover, he was hustled off to East
St. Louis. The authorities of Cairo deny all
knowledge of the case. Mayor Thistle wood
was not, and would not be guilt of so
grow an imposition upon any community,
.east of all upon one already, so well sup
plied with undesirable characters as is East
St. Louis, Dr. Wood, county overseer of
the poor, also denies all knowledge of the
ease, says that he never hoard of Robert
winslow and that no such

In this can, it wu not done by tho authori
ties oi uiro or Alexander county, and if
CAIRO BULLETIN: TUESDAY MORNING, AUGUST? 1G, 1831,
Winslow gave tho authorities there to un
derstand the contray, he expired with a
bise falbhood o his lips. On the other
band Cairo is very often imposed upon.
Hardly a day passes that docs not bring
within her levee some poor, sick
outcast, either from Kentucky, Missouri or
East Bt. Louis, tor ought we know, who
either beg or steal from our citizens, violate
our ordinances, furnish employment to our
officers and police couits and fill our jails;
or, being afllicted with loathsome , diseases,
parade themselves before the passing
crowds at some public square in the city,
until they are taken to the1 city hcipital,
from whence they come iorth, either dead
or alive, at the expense of the people of tho
city of Cairo and Alexander county. Ter
haps in two cases out of a hundred they
come forth in the former condition, and put
the people to the further expense of seeing
their remains decently consigned to their
last resting place. In the other ninety-eight
cases they come forth in the latter condi
tion and then, in many casus, beg or steal
enough money to pay their
expenses home, which ' may be
East St. Louis for all we know. Certain it
is that the peculiar situation of Cairo, the
case and cheapness with which it may be
approached from all parts of the country,
and last, but really most important of all,
the excellent hospital accommodations it
furnishes, render it an attractive trysting
place for the lame, the halt,
the diseased as well as the
lazy ana dissolute. I he consequence
is that by far the heaviest expense of the
city and county is the care of the criminal
and pauper classes and it has ceased to be a
matter oi surprise to our county commis
sioners to find that the largo poor fund has
Iwen overdrawn by several hundred dollars
before the fiscal year has half expired
One might also infer from all this that the
condition of society in Cairo and Alexander
county must bo somewhat undesirable; bat
the fact that this is not ihe case is proof
positive of tho excellence of our police force,
the energy with which they pursue all whose
character is not above suspicion, and the
judicious liberality of our authorities in the
expenditure, of money for the enforcement
of all the laws against the lawless. This
may be a littiO foreign to the subject under
consideration, but it goes to show that Cairo
and Alexander bavo not only provided am
ple means and exert themselves honestly to
provide for their own sick and poor, but
have better ciuse for complaint, because of
abuses of the character of which East St.
Louis complains, than that city has or ever
can have. Tho authorities of Cairo plead
not guilty to the charge preferred against
them by the authorities of East St. Louis.

We are requested in pleasing terms, by
a ltdy to "carry the news" ot the convoca
tion at Lake Bluff, and specially invite all
and everyone to attend. We do not know
of a better way to do it than to publish
their invitation sent in the following :
To good citizens: You will not deny that
tho alcohol habit is a "great evil." Involv
ing as it does the dram-shop, a school of
vice, the 'treating," the profanity, the ribal
dry, tho gambling, tho almost irresistible
tendency to excess, and the actual drunken
ess with its results, no candid man will de
ny that it is "a great evil," and "something
should be done. '
Perhaps you object to tbe methods of the
"temperance people,'' but still allow that
"something ought to be done."
This card is a special invitation to you to
do something; not some hasty.ill-coiiBidered
thing, but what is conceded on all hands to
be wise when a great occasion exists. There
will be at Lake Bluff, near Chicago, on the
20th to the 29th of Asgusf, a "convocation,"
one of the great feature of which will be a
free and open conference, holding a session
every day, for a week. The great
question will be: "What is the
wisest thing to bo done about
thi8"Alcohol Habit." We propose to study
it thoroughly Dr. J. S. Jewell, an eminent
authority, will lecture on "Brain etc., nerve
disturbances as related alcoholization," Eli
Johnson on "what they drink and bow they
make it." He docs not theorize, lie demon
strates. And Mr. Bain, M. J. B. Finch, M.
Woodford, and numbers more, who have
thought, seen, or felt on this question will
be there. Miss F. E, Willard, ' one of the
hiarvels of this age, and a host of her
friends will be there. Special invitations
have been sent to the temperance "orders,"
Bocietios, and clubs, to teachers, ministers
and printers, and thin is a special invita
tion to the "Good Citizen" who "don't

, Opinion of corporation counsel as to the
legality ot section 8 of ordinance No. 45:
Hou. Mayor and City Council of tbe City ofCsiro
Your resolution, referring to mo section
8,of ordianco No.45 for my opinion as to the
legality of said section, has been laid before
me and has been duly considered.
Said section 8 is in the following words,
to-wit: "The street committee aro hereby
authorized ana directed to adopt all ueces
sary measures, to carry out the previsions
of this ordinance, relating to the filling,
drainago and improvement of said alley
As well as I caii determino from the pre
amble of tho resolution, the question which
I am called on to answer is, whether the
city council may legally delegate to its
street committee power to carry out the pro
visions of ordinance 45.
Ordinance 45 seems to have been regular
ly passed by the council, and approved and
signed by the mayor. All the parts of an
ordinance regularly passed and approved,
are legal, unless they violate, or contravene
some provision of tho constitution of the
United States or of the State, or some clause
of the general municipal incorporation law,
or some other general law.
I cannot find any such violation in said
Ordinance 4 provides tne manner in
which the money shall be raisod for tbe
filling, drainage and improvement of rail
road alley, and sets apart the money so
raised as a special fund for the filling,
drainage and improvmeut aforesaid. The
power granted in section eight in no manner
violates, or contravenes, section 13 of arti
cle three, or section 50 of article nine of the
gcueral municipal incorporation law, com
monly called the city charter.
Neither the preamble, nor the resolution,
informs me whether the contracts for the
filling, drainage and improvement of rail
road alley were let to the lowest responsi
ble bidder in the manner prescribed, by or
dinance; and I am not called upon jo an
swer concerning the validity or the con
tracts; nor am I called on to say whether
such coutraets.it they were let in good faith.
' and without traud, by the street committee,
I would oe obligatory upon the city.
;.or am I called upon directly to express
an opinion concerning the appropriations to
pay for work done under such contracts;
and it is probable it is not disputed that all
Btich appropriations must bo passed in the
mode pointed out in section I'd of article
three of the city charter; that is. by the
concurrence of a majority of all the mem
bers elected on a call of the yeas and nays.
And the only question for me to answer
is, whether the city council could legally
delegate authority and power to its street
committee, to adopt all necessary meas
ures to carry out the provisions of ordinance
45, relating to the filling, drainage and im
provement of Railroad alley.
I have no hesitation in answering tho
question in the affirmation. And I base my
opinion, fiust, upon the authority of judi
cial decisions; second, upon precedent.
1st. The powers of a city council may
be properly divided into two classes, first,
Leoislative powers, second, mechanical
powers. I ho kirst class includes the en
acting of ordinances and the passing of re
solutions and orders, and such powers can
not be delegated. The second class consists
of .what are called by some law writers
mechanical powers, Buch as letting con
tracts, examining aud receiving work done,
under contract, exocuting orders on city
treasury, etc., and these powers can bo del
Many powers, called mechanical, are
granted directly, and some impliedly, to
various oniciais connected wim iuo wiy
Seo Dillon on Municipal Corporations
Vol. I, side page 377. Sugden, on powers,
p, 170, 1. Hiirs New York Reports, p. 501.
2nd. The city council possesses only such
powers as sre granted by the general muni
cipal incorporation law. But within the
scope of its powers, its legislative authority
is governed by exactly the same precedents
and genral rules as those which govern the
British parliament, the American congress,
or a stato legislature. It is matter of every
day experience that legislative bodies com
mit to their appropriate committees, and to
other public functionaries, power to make
contracts and othorwiso to bind thorn, and
that mode of doing business by legislative
bodies has been constant and undisputed
for over two hundred years. And no other
mode would be practicable, unless the leg
islative bodv should remain In session per
petually and, becomo a movable committee.
1 am of the opinion tnat saia section
eight is legal, and grants to the street com
mittee only such powers as said oomminco
may legally exorcise. Respectfully yours,
