We solicit the patronage of the cash buying public
who will find it to their advantage to trade at
from for every office and In
each c;we them is the good,
bad am! indiff'-rent. Mayor Halliday neods
no advice on the suhjfet of appointments;
he knows what qualifications are necessary
to the proper performance of the duties of
every office; he knows where these qualifi
cations are t be found and in his selections
he is not hampered by obligations to any
one. His nominations will be handed in
at the next meeting of tho city council and
will consist of a chief and seven
police officer, a city comptroU
lcr, a street commissioner, librarian,
a health officer, street collector and perhaps
at some future time a detective.
In d-ttail and in brief the proposition
made by President Whituhouse of the 8t.
Louis and Cairo railroad company, in his
letter to Mayor Halliday, are, that tho com
pany will raise the city's levee to a height
of dfty-four feet, give its outer slope a fall
of one foot iu three, make it twelve feet
wide at the top and ballast the track with
rock. Now our levee ii already fifty-four
feet big!-, its outer slope has now a fall of
ono foot in five, it is already twelve feet
wide on the top, and the little streak of
tone ballast on top would be of no use
whatever. President Whitehuuso is cer
tainly not wull informed of the matter r iu-c-rning
which he would treat or he w u!d
uot have made tho proposition hu did; nd
it is very likely that, but for this Urk of
information and misinformation combined,
on th-j part of those in authority in thrrvm
piny, concerning the details of the tint tors
at i -sue between them aod the city, has
been the chief obstnelo in the way of an
amicable settlement in the past. It is to
be hoped now that the matter will begivon
the attention if deserves by rreaiuent
Whitohomu and Superintendent Hamilton,
that they timy judiro Intelligently of tho
differences between them and the city coun
cil, and make such proposals as can be en
tertained by the mayor and members city
council without violating their own good
sense and sacrificing tho pcoplo's interost.
