There were Beveral sudden deaths in
the city during Saturday night and Sun
day, tlio most noteworthy of which w,is th a
of Mrs. Patrick Burke, on Fourth street,
who, without previous illness, died about
11 o'clock Saturday night. She had at
tended to her usual duties during the day
and was in apparent good health. It is
thought that tho cause of her death was
heart disease. Services were held over her
remains at St. Patrick's church yesterday
and they were convsyed to Villa Ridge iu
tlie afternoon, for interment.

work with great dispatch. People who
have not visited the shops would be sur

norant of its extent.
A number of citizens in all parts of
the city, who have taken much pains this
spring with their flower gardens, woke up
yesterday and the day before to find that
some one had invaded their premises and
made a dastardly raid upon tho beautiful
flower beds and shrubbery. Many valuable
plants were stolen, rudly torn up by tho
roots, and others were trampled under foot.
It will perhaps be difficult to discover who
tho rascally perpetrators ot these outrages
arc, but it will be some satisfaction to
know that the officers are on the lookout
Mr. Linegar thinks that the Illinois
legislature will not get through with its
work until the 15th of June. It has now
been in session more than four months, and
has sent but eleven bills to tho governor for
his signature. While the number of bills
passed is no standard by which to measure
the value of legislative services indeed, it
is often safe to measure the value of ser
vices as inversely to the number of bills
passed it must puzzle the gentleman at
Springfield to give a satisfactory account ot
theii stewardship since the beginning of
the session in January.

and came home. Here they exhibited their

fish in First lake were as
thick and as anxious to bite as flees on a

"TOE THE SCRATCH."
WE WANT EITHER PHOOr OK UOUB.
The Argus takes refugo in personal abuse
of us, to avoid standing by the grave accu
sations it has repeatedly made against Mr.
Linegar, and, very cvidoutly with a pur
pose, it exhibits an obtuseness with refer
ence to the simplest matters connected
with a logistive bill while pending, that is
really aggravating. But wo do not intend
to allow the Argus to thus unceremoniously
gather its tail between its hinder extremi
ties and sneak off like a sickened, cowardly
cur from a fight which it (to its sorrow no
doubt) began; we intend if possible, to
hold it to its own vomit and make
it either eat the vile excres
cence or justify itself in besmirching
the name of a representative man.
It seems to us that the Argus ought is
in duty bound to explain. It ought to
do this, not only in justice to Mr, Linegar,
but in justification of itself. It must prove
its insinuations reflecting upon the houor
of Mr. Linegar to bo tiuo, or stand convic
ted of slander, or of being itself the tool of
some person, or combination of persons,
whose in cerests are not the people's inter
ests and are, therefore, threatened with in
jury by the execution of the provisions of
Mr, Linegar's street filling bill men who,
using the Argus as their willing weapon,
have Bought to kill the bill even before it
was bnrn, and are, now that the till is a
law, using the same instrument iu their
efforts to save themselves and to cheat the
people out of the benefits tho bill 'would
confer upon them.
In terms that cannot be misunderstood,
the Argus has stated positively, that House
Bill No, 417 was the result of the plottings of
a set of unscrupulous men, whose infamous
purpose it was to plaster every foot of
ground in the city with a heavy mortgage
and ultimately to perpetrate the most
gigautic robbery every attempted : wrench
from the hands of the property holders, by
excessive taxation, the results of their daily
toil, crush them under the weight of an
enormous bonded debt, confiscate their real
estate and send them forth beggars among
strangers at last. Only the most positive
proof could justify so serions a charge as
this and we insist that the Argus should
furnish it to us and the public, or acknowl
edge its great error and ask pardon of
those whom it has soscriously accused. We
insist, now as always, that House Bill No.
417 contains nothing that could be
tortured into a basis for the Argus' charge,
that it does Dot contain a line or a sentence
that does not plainly indicate a purpose on
tho part of the author or authorsj
to protect the people, the
small property holders especially, against
any possible attempt on the part of. a du
signing few to oppress them with the cost
of any extensive public improvements made
ou the special assessment plan. We insist
(AND WE CHALLENGE THE A KG US OR ANY
ONE TO PBOVE OTHERWISE), that IIoUSO
Bill Mo. 417 contains no provision giving
the city council of any city, any important
power that was not conferred by previous
aws, excepting, perhaps, one, viz : the power
to condemn land to obtain dirt for public
improvements, and this is certainly not a
power that could be used to the detriment
of property holders. We insist that, so fur
from furnishing any proot of the correct
ness of tho Argus' charge, tho bill itself,
from its title to its concluding clause, is a
complete refutation of such chargo and ex
actly the reverse of what the Argus says it
is. Under the city charter the city council
could to morrow raise the grade of the en
tire city to ten feet, more or less, above the
level of the levees, cguld ordorall the streets
filled immediately up to this grade on the
special assessment plan, and could enforce
immediate payment on the part of property
holders, at the risk of having their property
sold to. the highest bidder. House Bill
417 provides for dividing the city into dis
tricts as small or as large as may be deemed
advisable, for raising the grade ot such
districts, one at a time, to any level desired,
for filling the streets of such districts, one
or any part of one at a time, up to such
level, for doing this work on the special
assessment plan and giving property hold
ers twenty years in which to pay this spe
cial assessment. It docs not give the city
council power to compel property holders
to give bonds or mortgages. (Saturday the
editor of the Argus very kindly offered us
the important information that the title of
a legislative bill always expresses the con
tents of the bill itself. We beg leave now
to courteously return the compliment by
offering, in the meekest manner of which
the most bashful of follows is capable, and
with a due appreciation of the gross imper
tinence of the act and an humhle apology
therefor in advance, the information that,
by common law and by very common
equity, bonds and mortgages, must always
be given voluntarily, always.)
Now, then, since the bills themselves do
not furnish any evidence whatevor to bus
tain the Argus in its gravo charge, other
sources must be looked to tor such evidence
and these sources we aro unable to discover
without the assistance of the Argus. We
ask, therefore, that the Argus furnish us
this proof from thoso other sources, or from
any source, ifit can, or stand condemuod by
its failure to do so, of grossly Blundering a
a faithful, able and hard-working public
servant, in its effort to further the sc homes
of a set of men organized to defeat a meas
ure enaoted for the people' own greut good.
We demand that tbe Argus toe tho mark
and give us either prool or bul-lood.
