' IH rimj tho past week tho police lorce,
under direction of Chief Myers, has been
( making tho city an uncomfortable place
ol residenco for tho members of tho Frail
Sisterhood who do here abide. Tho Chiefs
motives for these raids has been questioned!
butthiowho know him bei know that
thoy aro prompted by his detestation of
tho trade followed by tbesi women. His
heart probably bleeds for the unfortunate
women, but stern duty urges liim on in
his efforts of reform.

nnd tho unsatifaction news from North

Radicalism in these days is vanity and
fetation of the spirits.

A young man namod Turner, a late

Tuesday night. Hills to the amount of
over 4.3,600 wero presented. If this U an
average, tho cost of running the city gov

bo endured by a city tho income of which
is not moru than $50,000, and whose, out
standing "orders on the treasury, to pay
which there is not a cent of cash, would
make a small . mountain ? We are not a
