the lowr part of the city, that a white
man living at tho corner of Fifth street

while attempting to board one of the Wa

port was not correct. It doubtless arose
from the fact that the man, Landers, who
was injured at Bird's Point some time ago
and has been under the care of Drs. Park
er at St. Mary's Infirmary here, was con
veyed Wednesday frnm the Infirmary to
the house named, where he boards, and
where he will remain until entirely well.
The tu'.'gestion of Argus last evening,
made upon the authority of "good lawyers
n the legislature, who voted for the bills,"
that Mr. Linegar's two bills, Nos. 257 and
917, are unconstitutional in some important
particulars, simply aud alone becauie, in
their operation upon Cairo, they contem
plate too great a work, ia not as strong an
argument agaiost the bills as it is an indi
cation of the small estimate in which the
author of it holds Mr. Linegar as a legisla
torial not near s i much of this as it is a con
demnation of the said "good lawyers in
Ihe legislature." who voted to Dlace a law
upon our statute books, which they be
lieved to bo unconstitutional. It is our
humble opinion that Mr. Linegar is as
good a conttitu'ional lawyer as there is in
the legislature and a butter one than nine-
tenths of them in either house. Tho fact
that Mr. Linegar is looked up to by nearly
all members of both parties and that he is
a ruling power in the Iiouho sufficiently
sustains us in this belief. And Mr. Line
gar believes that his bill is constitutional,
so do many other "good lawyers" both in
and out of the legislature.
Tho portions referred to as being uncon
stitutional are those which provide for en
forcing the filling of low lots and blocks on
which water stands, on the ground that
they are nuisancer The Argus, laboring
uuder anotner bad attack of Munchausen
fever, declares that these provisions would
condemn the whole city as a nuisance and
empower tho council to coinpoll property
holders to elevate their lots and the Btreets
aywiuu -until it shall bo a citv on a hill
that can not bo hidden." But the Aruus is
vry careful nut to present a word of proof
from the bills to sustain theso wild asser-
tons, and as wo havo it from vory cool au
thority, Mr. Linegar himself, that tho bills
contemplate aud provide f Jr nothing of tho
kind, we take Issue with the Argus upon
FRIDAY MORNIMG, JUNE
theso unreasonable statements. In the first
place, it has been tho opinion of men well
versed in municipal law, who have made
the mutter a study of years, among them
Col. John Wood, that the city charter gave
the city council tho very power tho Argus
gays Mr. Linegar's bills give to that body.
Col. Wood has claimed all along, and does
claim now, that under the city charter the
city council may to-day declaio every low
lot in the city a nuisance and compel! the
owners thereof to fill them up to tho estab
lished grade. If the council has this pow
er by virtuo of the city charter, how can
Mr. Linegar's bills couvcy such power. Or
will the Argus claim that a mortal man
can accomplish A physical impossibility by
a legislative act : give to auotuer manor
body of men that which such man or b'idy
of mcu already has or have? But Mr.
Linegar has always di flu red with Col
Wood on this point and does so now. He
claims that neither under the charter uor
under his bills can the city council compel
the owner of any low lot to till it up to any
level uecause It is a nuisance, fkovidkd
8UCU LOW LOT IS A NUISANCE BT KKASO.N OF
TUB IMPROVEMENT OF rUBLIC l'ROPERTY.
But he is of opinion that if such low lot is
a nuisance in its natural condition, than it
may be so declared by the council the own
er may bo compelled to abate it in any ef
fectual way, or tho council may do so it
self aud confiscate the prooerty if neces
sary; ami it cioeso t nave to avail useir oi
the provisions of Mr. Linegar's bills either
in order to exerciso this authority, but can
remain strictly within the bounds of tl
provisions of the city charter.
Thus another of the "enormous powers"
which the Argus claims are conferred upon
the city council by Mr. Linegar's bills, is
found to have its seat, in a very much
weaker form than the Argus claims,
really in the city charter, and
could have been exercised by
that body at any time. We repeat, that
Mr. Linegar's bills, so tar as they relate to
street and lot filling, convey not one iota of
power upon the city council that is not in
tended, and does not operate, to lighten the
burdens that might result from any action in
this direction taken by the council uuder
authority of laws existing before said bills
were even thought of.
But it is evident tint the Argus is deter
mined to find mud where there is no mud
and is ba lly "mashed'' on sipe waters. It
doesn't want the city filled above high wa
ter mark and it pictures in graphic terms
the evil results of filling up the low places
now to the present grade. The natural
conclusion is, that it wants the city to re
main just exactly as it is now, with its
early ponds of green ycum
and its early alarm on ac
count of fl ods (which latter it has an
ugly habit of helping to create). It cannot
conceal the fact that it has been a deeply
interested listener to the sipe-water diffus
ion held at a late meeting of the Ideal
League, and the arguments of tho affirma
tive side seem to have been
too much for its better judgement.
But in spite of the Argus' efforts to preju
dice the public mind against raising the
city's grade, little by little, as the property
holders may desire, up to a safe, convenient
level above the levees, there is a strong and
growing sentiment in favor of it. And
this sentiment exists.not among the floating
population of the city, but among the prop
erty holders, the substantial men, those
who would have to bear the expense of the
improvement contemplated. And if those
upon whom the burdens resulting from any
improvement will rest are in favor of such
improvement, what business have others
who are not altec'ted to the extent of one
penny except in that they would derive
Large incidental benefit from tho general
activity among tho laboring claste3 created
by such improvement wnat business nave

A SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY.
A NEW AND MOST IMPORTANT TIIEOHY
ONE OF THE MOhT VITAL QUES
TIONS OK THE DAY.
If anyone had informed Queen Elizabeth
in her palmiest days that she could have
been seated in her palace in London and
conversed with Sir Walter Raleigh in his
North Carolina home; receiving a reply
from him within an hour's time, she would
have declared it to do a miracle. And yet,
had they lived in the present day, this ap
parent miraclo would most readily have
been witnessed and not seem at all strange
or unnatural. The truth is, new principles
are coming into existence, and the operation
of many laws unknown in the past is being
fully understood in the present. In no way
does this fact come more forcibly to the
mind than in the care and treatment of the
human body. Millions of people have died
in past ages from some insignificant or easi
ly controlled cause which is thoroughly un
derstood now and readily handled. Con
sumption duriug the entire past has been
considered an incurable disease. And yet
it is demonstrated that it has been and can
becured, even after it has had a long run.
Dr. Felix Oswald has just contributed a
notable article on this subject to the Popu
lar Science Monthly. He regards consump
tion as pulmonary scrofula. The impurities
of the blood produce a constant irritation in
the lungs, thus destroying their delicate
tissues and causing death. His theory
shows conclusively that consumption is a
blood disease. It has its origin primarily
in a deranged condition of the kidneys or
liver, the only two organs of the body, aside
from the lungs, that purify the blood.
When the kidneys or liver are diseased they
are in a sore or lacerated ttate which com
municates poison to every ounce of blood
that passes through them. This poisonous
blood circulates through the system and
comes to the lung9, where the poison is de
posited, causing decomposition in the finely
formed cells of the lungs. Any diseased part
of the body has contaminating power, and
yet the blood, which is the life of tho sys
tem, is brought into direct contact with
these poisoned organs, thus carrying conta
gion to all parts of the body. Bishop Jesse
T. Peck, D. D., LL. D whose death has
been so rece.itly regretted, is reported to
have died of pneumonia, which medical au
thorities affirm indicates a diseased condi
tion of the ki Joeys. It is well known,
moreover, that for several years he has been
the victim of severe kidney trouble, and
tho pneumonia which finally terminated his
life was only the last result of the previous
blood poisoning. The deadily matter
which is left in tho lungs 'by the impure
blood clogs up and finally chokes the
patient. When this is accomplished rapid
ly it is called pneumonia or quick con
sumption; when slowly, consumption, but
in any event it is tho result of impure
blood, caused by diseased kidueys and
These are facts of science, and vouched
for by all tho leading physicians of the duy.
They show tho desirability nay tho neces
sity, of keeping these most important organs
in perfect condition, not only to insure
health, but also to uscapo death. It has
been fully shown, to the satisfaction of
nearly every unprejudiced mind, that War
ner's Safe Kidney and Liver Curo is the
only known remedy that can cure and keep
in health the great blood-purifying organs
of the body. It acts directly upon theso
members, healing all ulcers which may
havo formed in thorn and placing them In
a condition to purify and not poison the
blood. This is no idle statement nor falso
theory. Mr. W. C. Beach, foreman of the
Buffalo, N. Y., Rubber Type Foundry was
givou up to die by both physicians and
friends. For four years lie had a terrible
Cough, accompanied by night Bweats,cbills,
aud all the well known symptons. Ho
spent a season south and found no relief.
He says: "I finally concluded to try War
ner's Safe Curo and In three months I gain
ed twonty pounds, recovered my lost ener
gy and my health was fully restored." Tho
list could be prolonged indefinitely but
enough has been said to provo to every suff
erer from pulmonic trouble, that thoro is
no reason to bo discouraged ia the least,
and that health can bo restored.
