Somebody wants the council to order

Henry T. Martin has been permitted

Councilman Hunt is anxious to havothe

poens the bet way to that end a Joint
ommittoo of Members of the council and

Tho council, by vote, requested tho
mayor to vole nt tho meeting on Fridav
night in con fir run t Ion of his own nomina
tion of n policeman. No matter; but the
proceeding was, in our opinion, odd like
the heathen Chinee, peculiar. The char
tor authorize the mayor to appoint cer
tain officers by nnd with tho ndvlco nnd
content of tho council. Wo doubt li'f
right to vote that ho consents to nllow
hlmclf to tuiiko nn appointment; but, as
wo have s.ld, no matter. Who cares ?
We cull tho attention of the city nu-
thorltici to tho condition of tho sidewalk
on Ninth street between the nvenucs. Ev
ery fow steps is n mnn trnp, dangerous to
limb nnd life. A few days ago n lady fell
through the walk nnd soverely injured her
self. On Friday night n gcntlcmnu step
ped through n hole in tho wnlk nnd fell on
his faco. lie wns hurt so much he could
not move, nnd attracted attention nnd so
cured assistance by crying "murder." No
perion can pass along tho walk snfuly even
in the day time.
Tho proceedings of thu council meet
ing on Friday night wero characterized
by harmony nnd good fooling, n fact which
has given to us a stinging pang of rcgict.
We are vory anxious lo haven row in tho
council. There is nothing of interest go
ing on in the city nothing that can

in tho council is our only hopo. Alder
man Fitzgurnld is tho tnusclo man nmong
tho city fathers, and ho will confer n great
favor upon us by calling seme other alder
man a rnscnl. This would probably inau
gurate tho row wo hope for.
