Editor Cairo Bulletin -.
In your ltie of tho 10th lnt., "31c

Is right for people to noil from wagons with
out a license or not. If he don't know right
from wrong It Is probably his misfortune.
"Enquirer" dare not complain orthosc who
sell from wagons without n license, nor
against any dealer, be he itenerant or resi
dent, who can or doe sell for lcs than he
does, but ngalust the law that compels one
merchant to pay n license while another

suppose a case : A dry goods merchant
establishes himself In n wagon, In front of
R.H.Ciiunlngham'sand begins to sell. How
soon would he Inqiilro if said party had a
license, ir his stock In trade consisted In
drugs. Schuh would tunc his gentle voice
for war; but If some one coiiminenccd to
peddle protlsloni In front or King's produce
store, neither or those city guardians and
doughty champions or equal rights, would
think of entering hi protest ; and If asked
to do so would otter the weakest kind or an
excuse for not dolng'.lt.
The dealers of this city ask nothing un
reasonable. They demand simple Justice at
the hands or those whom thev have Intrusted
with the management or" the city's af
fairs; and our eltv fathers are recreant to
their trust, ir they do not mete out Justice
Start us even gentlemen, and to the one that
wins be the prize awarded. Inijuikeh.
Remarks. "Inquirer" makes his point
in a forcible manner. Tho dealer In
country produco who lives in tho city
should be treated with, at least, as much
kindness by tho city authorities as the
dealer who lives out of it. If he is re
quired to pay a tax for the privilege of
selling to his neighbor, why should
not the produco dealer who comes
into town dally in a wagon bo also re
quired to pay u tax for tho privilege of
selling? What is sauce for the goose is
sauce for the gander, but in this instance
the council seeks to compel the goose to
take for sauce something it does not feed
to the gander. All dealers in produco in
Cairo who are fixed to the real cstato of
tho city, and pay taxes, and spend thoir
money hero and help maintain tho city
government, are compelled to pay for a
license to do business to sell; while tho
dealers in produco who soil in Cairo, on
wheels, and who pay no taxes to tho city
but carry out of It all the money they tako
in for their stuff, pay nothing. This Is
manifest injustice, and is in opposition to
that just rule which declares that all pub
lic burdens must bo equal. If tho council
does not legislate this wrong away, our
produce dealers must put their stores on
wheels and flourish in untaxed liberty.

Captain was sinern in what he said and
would bo the last ono to endanger tho
lives of his passengers. Still the assertion
was n careless one.
