COUNTY WHAT WII.I, OAllto Do Y
The pvojilo of South Hallard, tii most
fertile portion of llallnrd county, Imvo long

Cairo, Lut havo been kept away from the

not be forded when the waters of tho Mis-
siisippi back up and fill the channel. To
obviate this ditlluulty it is proposed to
build a bridge across thn creek at u point
about lx miles from tho forry landing.
When this is done, the people of South
liallard, who are now compelled to deal at
Columbus, can always reach Cairo where
uiey preter to trade. To construct this
proposed bridge, with proper approaches,
and to otherwise repair Hie road will
require about l,000 cash. Lust week tho
court ol Hallard county voted an allow,
anco of H000, worth about fifty cunts on
adollar, to bo expended on this road, pro

city ttnd wo hopo thoy may receive tlio
most gratifying oncourngmont. Our mer

liberally. Wagon roads openings into

Cairo more than railroads. Theso wagon
roads bring farmers into our streets, with
farm products in tholr wagons for the uso

WOOD AND THE CITY PRINTING.
A QUIRT WORD TO TUB COLOKKL AND HIS
NUN WHY TUB SUN SHOULD NOT I'llINT
KOII TUB CITY.
Probably becauso tho 'Sun' Miggctcd
Col. Wood for tho office of mayor during
tho last canvass and insisted on making
him a candidate for the sulect council in a
ward not entitled to elect n member at the
lato election, ho has becomo tho champion
nnd advocate of his little luminary and
says ho is resolved to give tho city print
ing to that papor during tho current mun
icipal year. Very well; if the Cononel
can lead tho council into his way of think
ing wo shall not complain ; but, before the
decision Is made, wo wish to briefly state
why Tub llULLGTiN should rccelvu the
city printing at a fair price and not be
compelled to enter Into a contest of low
rates with tho 'Sun.' So. here goes:
Tho city lias adopted tho policy of en
couraging manufacturing establishments,
because thoy give employment to work
men and distribute monoy in Cairo among
retail dealers. To Mr. Gamblu tlio cilv
gave valuable privileges and tho trustees
ol the property, valuable proporty. Tho
hub factory was as much favored, and tho
Uox Factory und Eicholf Brothers had no
reason for complaint. The policy was not
a mistaken one, and, if tlio' trustees had re
fused to donate lots to oncourago theso en
terprisos, Major Wood would havo raited
his nbeneozer in an explosion ot indignu
tion against Col. Taylor.
.Now, wo assert the Uullktin Is as
much entitled to thu encouragement of the
city as any other enterprise.
In the faco of the most discouraging cir
cumstances Tub Bullkti.v has struggled
for years, and has novor lost an opportu
nity to advocato Cairo and her interests.
Hut, moro than this, Tub Hullbtin has
and does now emplo a greater number
of workmen than most of tho establish
ments of tlio city, and pays out to em
ployes every month between eleven and
fifteen hundred dollars cash lor wages,
which, with tho other expenditures of tho
office, go into tho pockets of our grocers,
dry-goods mercbiints, boot and shoo men,
etc. The Hullbtin is a concern Cairo
has no right to decry, and if Col. Wood
and his co-laborers in tlio council and Ma
jor Munu's oflico woro to succeed in their
very sly attompU to broak it down, Cairo
would bo a greater suficror than we. Tho
hub factory may provo u failure, and tho
outside barbarians bo none tho wiser, but
tho failure of Tiik Hullbtin would at
least croato a rippleon tho currcntof pub
Hut, although wo believe we might with
good showing of justico claim tho right to
receive tho encourngomont of the Cairo
public in the manner indicated, we ask no
such favor, and only cluim wo should ho
allowed to do printing for the city at a fair
Wo might enforce this claim by calling
attention lo the fact that The Hullbtin
is tho only paper printed in Cairo that
can legally publish tho council proceed
ings and ordinances. ' Tho Paper, ' being
a weekly issue, cannot publish them, and
the 'Sun ' is net printed in Cairo. Olio
side of that sheet, and the only sidu con
taining reading matter, is printed ut liulle
ville. Tho side printed here contains n
few advertisements, and usually a local
item or two, and is printed by a man who
knows very little about tho atl'uirs of the
city, pays no taxes, has never done any
thing lo advance tho Interests of tho city,
and rents tho press on which ho does thu
printing from a citizen of Union county.
Tho only strong ground ho has for de
manding tho printing, is taut ho is the
organ of Col. John Wood and believes

Tho commltteo on strcots respectfully
report, that an examination of tlio side
walks of the city shows, that although a
great doal of work has been done unon
them within tho last year, a largo amount
is still required to put them In a good condi
tion. In viow, not only of tho convenience
of tlio citizens, hut al-o of tho necessity of
placing me wbiks in sucn a condition as to
relievo tho city from tho risk of being
subject to constant claims and suits for
damages, for injuries to persons resulting
from insecure walks, tho committee- re
commend that two gangs of men, consist
ing ol inrec each, bo p aced at onco upon
Iho repairs of sidewalks und crort-walks,
iu,d upon such new walks as miiv bo or
dered by tlio city and aro not constructed
by contract, one ot each gang to be em

and other piirtlcu'urs, that it may ho sub

monthly meeting on tho first Monday of
Tho attention of your committee has
been called to tho present grado of
many of tho siJowalks, which seems to be
much higher than Is required in many
places, und could ho lowered to great ad
vantage. This is particularly tho enso
with tho walk on Commercial nvonuo
abovo 20th street. Your commltteo
would recommend that this walk bo low

whoro such general reconstruction is re
quired as will permit It to ho done, that

which havo not been tilled, bu' lowered t'J

determine, such reduction of grade not to

To give efl'ict to tho abovo suggotions
your committee recommend tho adoption
of tho following resolutions, viz ;
Resolved, That two gai.gs of mon be
employed upon tho repairs of sidewalks,
to bu composed of throe each, ono of each

at tho rato of -'J per day each.
Resolved. That a go'norul superintend

committee on streets, and generally per
form such duties as may bo required of
him by them, tho same being generally
indicated by the reeonimendntions con
tuined in tills report, and that such su
perinlendont bo paid $7o a month.
Resolved, That the commlttco on streets
bo and thoy aro hereby authorized to
havo tlio sidewalk now existing on Com
morclnl avenue, from 20th to 34th street,
lowered to such grado us thoy may deem
expedient, not to exceed threo feet below
tho present grade, and to reduco the grade
of other siduwulks when reconstructed,
where tho streets havo not been filled, to
such level as thoy may deem expedient,
not to exceed three foet below the present
grade, and in no cnao bo lowor than tho
natural surfaco of tho ground ; and that
whoro tho sidewalk is not elovated moro
than eighteen inches above tho natural
