It can afford to do tlio work for nothing.
whilu Tub Bui.lktik must Insist on a

very low. With its present light it must
stick to its old figures, nnd if thn council
compels it to bid against tho 'Sun,' which
is not entitled to tho printing half as
much as Thk Rclletik, tho 'Sun' will
probably come out with flying colors. AVo
ask tho 'Sun' to make a note of this asser
tion, nnd go in on its little muscle.
A few of tho radical members ol tho
city council bended by Councilman Wood
attempt to lug politics into every move
ment and do; and what is remarkablo a
number of democrats aro too blind to seo
tho fact and apprcciato it. All through
the citizens movement tlio democrats
havo acted In tiio most perfect good faith,
nnd in the city council rise entirely abovo
partisan prejudices; but sever nl republi
cans, and in particular Mr. "Wood,- per
sist in bringing politics into 'ho chamber
and in seeking to determine all questions
by tho touchstono of: "Will it bo a good
thing for tho republicans '" This is not as
It should be.
The great and good councilman, Jno.
Wood, has a schemo in his brain out of
which ho proposes to bring grund results
for tho city of Cairo. Preliminary to tho
developomont of this wonderful measuro,
ho must secure control oi tho mayor s
shoes, and ho is now considering whether
it is best to tnko Mayor Lansden's during
that gentleman's torm or wait until next
spring and obtain Mr. Jake Bradley's
countenanco in nn open ennvass for tho
position. AVo shall observo the gentl
man's movements, nnd keep tho anxions
public posted in regard to his determina
tion in this very important mutter. If lie
should conclude not to couio to uuy deter
mination Cairo would loso a golden oppor
tunity to tako her legitimate position
nmong tho great cities of America.
Tho 'Sun' has tho impudence to a
sert that it suggested Mayor Lansden for
re-election Veforo Tiik Bulletin, Long
before tho 'Sim' took nny position The
Bulletin advocated a continuauco of tlio
old administration, und Mayor Linsden
took occasion to then inform us that lie
would not bo a candidate, when wo sug
gested Col. Taylor for the mayoralty,
But Col. Taylor refused to bo a cundiditte.
and Mr. Lansden concluded to forego his
objections to tho otHce and accept it again.
The Bulletin was not competed to
support Mayor Lansden, and cvenlB
proved that ho was a de
cidedly weak candidate. Colonel
Taylor could havo defeated him by a largo
majority, nnd tho fact that Jack Winter,
nut by any moans 11 popular man in Cairo'
shoved him to tho wall, und camo within
a fuw votes of beating liirn, is not, to say
tho Icn-t of it, a high compliment to him.
And in what manner did tho 'Sun' oppoe
Winter? By telling him, in a weak,
drolling manner, that really ho was doing
wrong iu being a candidate that he hud
told Lat.sdeu to run, und should therefore
lmvu remained out of tho race I Now, wo
huvu nothing to say in opposition to
Mayor Latden. liu is a gentleman, and
u scholar, and a good sort of un
oilicir, but hu must not torgot ho
was hulped to li is present position
by good friends friend? who
wure much moro effective than tho
'Sun' mini who has assumed, under tho di
rection of Col. Wood, to bu his deferder,
or than Col. Wood who has take tho con
tract to run his honor in tho interest of
the republican party. If all his friends
had been of the Wood-Davis kind ho
would havo gone up a vory long and a
