Tho Pulaski county court wants lum
ber with which to repu'r tho Cache bridge,
and yesterday male application to Capt.
Ilamble'.on of Mound City for it, but were
refused. It seems that not long ngo thu
namo body purchased from the captain an
amount of lumber and win charged for it
at the curront market price; this, too, in
tho depreciated scrip of thu county. Not
satisiled with all this, when tho bill was

llsh flliowhcro on thispago in relation to
policemen and police maMors Is nnodd
tnlxlure, to speak mldly of it. Tho writer
is full of soro spots, and wriggloi find
squirms under what ho cvidonlly considers
mistreatment from L othor officer, al
though ho carefully ubilnlns from men
tioning any specific act of tho construc
tive ill-dc.tling which is allege! in hie
communication, "What ho moans by
ofllcors being " run down" by " flying ro-
ports," nnd brother ''officers holding
thomsclvos nbovo uach othor," is rathor
obscure. Wo lmvo not heard of these " fly
ing reports," but hnvo bcatd of reports,
well authenticated, disparaging to certain
ofllcors and to tho forco of which they aro
members. And wo havo heard of tho re
fusal of ono officor to walk tho "beat"
with another until he had cleared
his character of somo very
damaging aspersions which reports
not "flying"' had cast upon It.
Perhaps this fact might explain in a groat
mcasuro tho other fact of officers holding
themselves nbovo each other. This wholo
police business ought to bo sifted to tho
bottom; and no better reason can bo urged
for it than that nn officer rushes into print
to defend himself against what ho is pleasod
to call "flying report," and to complain
of tho inefficency of tho force because "of
llcors hold themselves nbovo each other. "
It shows a demoralization that should not
ba permited to exist for a moment; doing,
beside, a great injustice to those members
of our police force who are always on tho
alert and prompt to do their duty.

Martin Swocny, having, in his youth,
imbibed tho political doctrino that "a ne
gro has no rights which a whilo man is
bound to respect," ordered ono of tho "men

steamer Howard. Sambo, fooling tho la
ziness, impudonco and independonco at
taching to colored American citizenship,
flatly refused; whereupon Mr. Sweeny
drew his pistol and sunt after tho delin
quent it couplo of leaden messengers,
which, seemingly, influenced Sambo and
changed his former determination to not
work. Tho argument used, howovor, noo
being considered lawful on this sldo of thl
Ohio, Mr. Swocny was arrcitcd by Officers
Myers and Arnold, t. 'ten before Dross
and fined $5 00 per shot.

(IMKor of tlm C.ilro IIuli.i in,)
What Is llio reason ll.oro ', such a dis
turbance bolwapn our p-licu ofllcors ? It
i a bad thing for ofllcors of tho city to let
such a coldness bo cronlod. Each and
every officer Ss rcquirod to sign a bond of
$1,000 for tho security of tho duties that
ho Is duly sworn to porform in behalf of
the city ; and for ono officer to think that
ho is abovo his brothor officer is a thing
that is not what somo might suppose.
Ofllcors should work to each other's in.
tarest in all casos whilo on duty, but not
to try and put ono down just because somo
parties think that he don't understand his
business thoroughly. They should look
to each othor. Thoy must know that each
officer nt tho timo of his election has a
good recommendation and is nominated
by the mayor to the forco to do his duty
irrespectivo ot persons or frionds; and
then for oulsido parties to try and run
such officers down by flying roport is n
tbiog that tho mayor and city council will
Investigate ; and tho mayor will makosotno
regulations in regard to tho duty of each
and every police constable. Such ought
to hnvo been tho caso somo timo ago. Tho
public know that such police regulations
as ought to bo, havo not been in existence
this year, nnd tho mayor and council
should tako tho matter in hand at once
and givo it a trial.
