Int; than tho Chlsfof Pnllco question;
but wo hnvo no doubt tho now Council
can solvo it, since tliore Is in tho question
no politics. Wo would suggest that IHo
hauling system bo nbandonoJ, nnd tho
burying system bo ndoptod. When n
gentleman wo nro too modest to namo was
Mayor, until thu Council whiclt behoved
Itself au ait on tho doad hog question,
took It In hnnd and out of his hands, ho
had all hogs found dead In thu unon
cloicd places of tho city buried bv tho
chain -;nng on tho spot wliero
.. . TI"T nk lo ret,
Ily all lire porker' wlhe Mef,
T,1 "Plan' worked excellently well. The
iuuuu iiu iun wnn it, nnu incro
woro no heavy bills for dead hog hauling.
In this way nil tho dead hogs of the city woro
disposed of with neatness, cheapness and
dispntch. We submit tho "plan" with all
due doforenco to the council. Wo know
tho difficulties which surround tho ques
tion, and nro nwnro of tho fact that hasty
action on it may ruin Mr. 0 rant's clnncci
of rc-olcction ; but such as it Is wc throw
It out. If It should bo rejected, wo shall
not complain, but remain as llent as a
Fancy Ooods. Attention is called to
tho stock of fancy goods nnd china toys
