Tuesday night's council meeting was
the first of this fiscal ear .which began
May 1st. The meeting is usually one
of the moat important of tho year as ap
pointments for tho several city offices are
then usually made and confirmed ; but at
this meeting there was too much other
business of importance and nominations
were deferred until tho next regular meet
ing which will be uext Tuesday. Doubt
less Mayor Thistlowood has tho slate
already prepared, and, also no doubt, his
nominations will ba good ones.
Elsewhere, in special locals, appears a
call for a meeting of the Hibernian Firo
company to be held at the council chamber
this evening. Tho "important business"
referred to in tho notice is a resolution of
fered at a previous meeting, to the effect
that tho rule exempting members from
dues aud fines after Bovon years' Bervice be
abrogated. Tho principal reason offered
in support of this resolution is, that tho
members to whom tho rulo applies, though
heretofore among tho most active, arc grad ually
becoming less so.
Yesterday thrco more cases of varioloid
were reported to tho authorities from dif
ferent parts of tho city. They wero all

living next to the Hibernian engiuo bouse,
on Washington avenue, and tho third, a
woman living in that filthy neighborhood,
known as "Cat Fish Row," on Ohio levee,
between Twelfth and Fourteenth streets.
The cases were all properly and promptly
attended to by Mayor Thistle wood aud

it were. But tho undertaking has not been
abandoned. Mr. Walker has Bent to St.
Louis for a good ball pitcher who will prob
ably arrive this week or next and then the
organization will be effected. Mr. Win.

Grandmother Argus says sho "finds no
fault with the character of work done in
digging tho canal but only shows up the
folly of digging it at all" So far as The
Bulletin has been able to see tho old lady
has "shown up"uothjng. Her dissertations
concerning "Dutch Gap" and the canal havo
been nothing but silly criticisms and preju
diced misstatements, unsupported by a sin
gle fact. Her lamo attempt to justify her
unjustifiable course, now that tho gap and
canal hivo accomplished their work satis
factorily, proves that she is at least con
cious of having made a damphool of herself.
At the council meeting Tuesday night,
among tho bills prcseutod for reference to
the committee on claims were two for labor
on 4 Dutch Gap" and tho canal, one of
which called for $JD1.(52, and the other
I300.U0, making a total of 903.5?. This
is about all that tho work so far done 1ms
cost, and all that remains to bo done is to
close tho canal, which will not cost a hun
dred dollars. Tho total cost of opening
and closing tho gap aud canal will not ex
ceed twelve hundred dollars which will fall
considerably short of three thousand which
was estimated by Grandmother Argus and
others to bo tho cost ot tho Jwork.
A man named Richard Needham was
fined five dollars and costs by Justice
Robinson yesterday for being disorderly.
Charles Smith and John Douse were fined
one dollar and costs each for druukeuness.
Forren Conway was hold to bail in tho sum
of ouo hundred dollars for larceny. He
had a partner named Henry Biglo with
whom ho went to bed night beforo laBt.
Early in the morning ho arose, took his
partner's pants out from under his pillow,
extracted therefrom two and a half dol
lars and then sought to mako himself scarce.
But Biglo notified Officers Martin and
Mahanny of tho incident and these brought
tho thief to grief.
The refusal of tho St. Louis & Cairo
railroad company to accept, or even notice,
the last proposition of tho sub-coinmitteo
of five does not Bupriso The Bulletin ono

would bo the case, because it believed that
President Whitehead wart not sincere when
ho made bin diplomatically, doubtfully
wordud proposition, in which ho offered to
"view favorably tho building of an em
bankmentof certain dimensions along the
city's new levee, proyidod tho Wabash road
would, "within a brief time," consent to
join in building said embankment. Had
Mr. Whitehead been sincere ho would not

A lady boarded tho ferry boat Three
States Thursday a't tho Kentucky landing
intending to go to her homo in Missouri.
She had been visiting relatives in Ken
tucky and was returning, expecting to meet
her husband at tho landing in Missouri.
While on the boat iu mid river sho gave
birth to a girl baby weighiug eiyht pounds
and being a big healthy child. In
the absence of any medical or other attend
ants Captain Hacker . and. Clerk Robert
DeVoro did all they could to make tho lady
comfortable- They stretched a niattroBs

the duties of midwife and physician in a
masterly manner. Tho lady and child met
the husband and father and all went ro
juicing to their home.
A meeting of tho sub committee of
five whs hold in tho offico of Messrs. Wood
Hitieuhouso & Bro. yesterday forenoon
The meeting was called by the
chairman for the purpose of formal
ly receiving a communication' from Presi
tlent Whitehead, replying to tho commit
tee's proposition which offered to remove
ail obstructions to tho company's entrance
into the city if thu company will do its
share of tho work proposed in a written
offer by President Whitehead. Tho answer
was brief and pointed, entirely ignoring the
Hub-committee's offer and simply stating,
that as the Wulxifh company had refused
to accept President Whitehead's proposi
tion, the St. Louis & Cairo company should,
by thu terms of said proposition, bo al
lowed to enter the city unconditionally on
the company's new right of way.
Old Lady Argus says that when si
bad tho contract for doing the city printing
"tho council proceedings always appeared
tho day after the meeting, while The Bul
letin often defers tho publication for
days." Under The Bulletin's contract
with the city, it was given ten days after
tho meeting in which to publish tho pro
ceedings, aud it seldom or never allowed
more than half that time to pass. Were
Old Lady Argus awarded tho contract now
she would bo entirely unablo to publish
the proceedings before tho expiration of
ten days after tho mueting, because the pro
ceedings now are about double what they
were when she published them before. She
might be able to publish them as required
by procuring additional machinery and in-
cieasing her fncilities generally; but this,
by her own admission, she is pecuniarily
unable to do.
. Tho St. Louis Globe-Democrat made
an Investigation la.it Sunday showing as
nearly as it could how many people attend
ed church that day, and how tho day was
otherwise spent by tho so-called Sabbath
breakers. At the morning and evening
services in all the churches there were in
attendance 119.4H persons, and in the
Suuday schools, 23,103 children. Of these
tho Catholic church is represented by 85,.
171 persons; the .Methodist by 7,402; the
Presbyterian by(l,'j29; the Baptist, 4,512;
the German Evangelical, including the
Lutheran, 7,519. At tho paiks, beer gar
dens, theatres and other non-religious
places, there were 20,212 persons. Of these,
more than one-tliird witnessed base bull
games. Allowing for duplications of
hurch goers that is, the same persons at
tending church bofli morning and evening
the number of individuals who attended

It took sharp eyes to catch a glimpse of
tho new celestial visitor known as Well's
comet which, according to prediction, w uld
bo visible Monday night. According to
Prof. Bess it could be looked for tho first
of May. It will uot bo conspicuous, how
ever, until tho middle of tho month, and
by the end of may and during Juno it will,
without doubt, furnish 'a splendid display.
By the first of Juno the comet will have
descended near CoBsiopud and PcrBous into
Auriga, and will thou riso shortly beforo
thesun. About June 4 or 5 it will proba
bly bo seen in ita greatest glory far down
in tho northeast just beforo dawn. The
Albany (N.Y.) Argus says that Mr. Eg
bert, one of the assistants at tho Dudley
observatory, has computed a now comet
will reach U perihelion, or nearest point
to the sun June 10, and will then bo dis
tant from that luminary about five and one
half million miles. Only eight comets in
the entire history of exact astronomy have
approached tho sun bo nearly as this. So
good an opportunity to observe the tffuct
consequent upon tho close opproach of a
comet to the sun has never before occured.
The comet is now about 185,000,000 miles
from tho earth. It will continue to ap
proach until May 20, whim its distance
will still bo about 80,000,000 miles from

Tho bids for doing the city printing?
for tho next fiscal year, submitted and
opened at the council meeting Tuesday
night, were very gingerly haudled. They
were both nearly alike and left but li'tlo
room for choice. The Bulletin's bid
was three hundred and sixty dollars per
year, payable mouthly in city scrip. The
Argus' bid was thirty dollars per month,
cash. Tho council simile a broad smilo
when these bids were read by the clerk
and when other bids for doing city work
ha I been disposed of tho printing bids
were taken up. Before any motions wore
made soino humorous sullies were indulged
in by several members. It was suggested
that the bidders be required to draw
straws, cast nickles or p!ay e&clier; obj"c
$n was made to The Bulletin's offer .to
take "city scrip," because, it was said, no
city scrip was issued now, though the ob
jector did not state in what manner an or
der of the city treasurer differed from city
scrip. Perhaps in anticipation of the
city's possible annihilation by earth quake,
cyclone, tire, flood or chronic grumblers
in which case it would, of course, havo no
council proceedings to publish, it was al
so suggested that, as trie Argus offered to do
the work by the month, thus giviug tho
council aji opportunity to break off its con
tract at any time at the end of any month,
it would perhaps be to the city's inteiest to
accept that paper's bid. A motion was
finally made, however, to reject both bids
and order the city clerk to advertise for
new bids. To this motiou an amendment
to refer tho bids to the finance committee
wan offered, and to this amendment was
offered another amendment to award tho.
contract to Tin: Bullktin. After some
discussion a vote was taken upon this trip
let, which resulted in a defeat of tho
amendment to the amendment and the
adoption of the amendment. The matter
is therefore referred to the finance commit
tee which is to report upon the matter at
its earliest convenience. In the meantime
the proceedings of tho city council must
remain unpublished, as Tin: Bulletin's
contract expired on the 1st instant.
Several days ago Old L-vly Argus an
nounced in a column article with u great deal
if bombast that tho Illinois Central rail
road company had been a secret narty to
tho war against the St. Louis and Cairo or
Cairo and St. Louis railroad, and that said
llinoi.s Central railroad company's main
object was to hinder the said St. Louie and
'airo railroad in its attempt to mako ar
rangements with Col. Paramoro to mako
connections at this point for St. Louis with
the Texas narrow gauge. There is no
truth iu the assertion; tho old lady has
either again been a willing, sightless dupe
f designing men, or she is still engaged
willful misrepresentations. It would
seem that tho result of tho Into elec-
ion Hhould satisfy tho old lady that her
ifl'orts to prejudice the public mind against
the city council in general, andj certain in-
lividuuls in particular, aro all in vain; but
she apjieurs to be too deplorably obtuse to
ko a hint without a kick. Tho real rea
sons why tho St. Louis mid Cairo railroad
company did not receive tho contract for
loinif the St. Louis business of tho Texas
narrow gauge road at this point
is juBt as Tims Bulletin Baid
several days ago; because tho
officials of tho former company wero
too slow to act and wero guided by a bad
udgmont shortsightedness. As evidenco
of this it is only necessary to quoto Col.
lamilton, superintendent of tho narrow
gauge road, who, while on a visit hero and
when asked concerning tho negotiations
then pending between Col. Paramoro and
tho officials of tho St. Louis and Cairo
company, said in substance, that they, tho
officials, wero In no hurry to be bound 'up
by Col. Paramoro; "wo aro between two
narrow gaugo roads, one at East St. Louis,
and Paramore's at Cairo; we havo tho kiy
to tho situation and enn got any terms we

want out of Col. Paramore." Theso iu
substance, were the words of superintend
ent Charles Hamilton, of the St. Louis and
Cairo railroad company, and they prove
conclusively that the Cairo und St. Louis
railroad company was guided by bad
judgment and shortsightedness in its deal
ing with Col.Paramorc and is alone to blame
for its failure to obtain a contract which
would havo been worth millions to it.
That Col. Paramore intended from the be
ginning to make connection, with St.
Louis by means of tho St. Louis and Cairo
narrow gaugo is a notorious lact, and as
he htatod to a Bulletin representative a
short time ago, he was not in the least af
fected by tho complications in which tho
Ht. Louis and Cairo company was involved
with the city. Col. Paramoro gave the
St. Louis and Cairo company first chance,
but it threw tho chance away by dilly
dallying and by sending to Chicago for a
fcniart lawyer who sought to impose a com
plicated and burdensome mass of condi
tions upon Col. Paramore, which the latter
could uot, in justice to himself, comply
with, and ho sought and found better Unns
elsewhere. Hail ho submitted to the
unreasonable demands of the St.
Louis and Cairo company he would
have had traffic connection only with East
St. Louis, as it is ho has it on much easier ,
terms with St. Louis proper. The St.
Louis and Cairo railroad company may
havo held "tho key to the situation";
doubtless it holds the same "key" yet; but
'where, O! where" is the "situation"?
Evidently Superintendent Hamilton and
President Whitehead think they also hold
the key to the situation between them and
tho city council of Cairo; but it is also evi
dent that, in this case as in the other, the
key will prove entirely useless in their
hauds. To use tho words of Old
Lady Argus, liefore she had been
"seen," and induced to meekly and blindly
follow the dictates of a narrow, prejudiced '
judgment: "If the officials of the narrow
gaugo road wero men of broad views and
good judgment, they would have settled
tho differences between them and the city
council long ago."
