Tho Mockler mutter is a Gordlan knot,
uot to bo untied and difficult to cut. ills
trial has thrown tho city into confusion,
and his determination to not surrender
tho combination of tho safo Is compli
cating tho affair In a most Inexplicablo
manner. Tho safo contains many papers
of value, the dray licenses record book,
and tho book of blank scrip; and now
como men inquiring for documents,
and inquiring about dray .licenses,
and city officers, laborers, and other
creditors of tho city asking that the
orders he Issued for what h duo them.
To all these the samo answer: "Safo can
not bo opened; Mockler refuses to give
up the combination."
This kind of conduct has, from tho
first of the difficulty, greatly injured Mr.
Mockler. He has promised to surrender
tho combination pledged his word of
honor that he would do to, and has per
sistently broken Ills word. And what
has ho gained? Nothing; but has lost
friends. Many people who sympathi
zed with him at first, have become an
gered by his pointless stubbornness.
Keeping tho safo shut, does him no good,
but puts the laborers or thu city to great
Inconvenience. The.io men live from
hand to mouth; audtolay out of their
money causes them great Inconvenience,
possibly suffering. Most of them nro
Mockler's countrymen, and thoy do uot
very graciously receive the news
that he Is the man who stands
between them and their hard-earned
wages. If ho were outof office, tho mat
tor could be speedily settled. The safe
could, upon his refusal to surrender tho
combination, be broken open, nnd his se
curities proceeded against by thu city;
but tho better way is for him to surren
der tho combination without delay. We
believe, If tho laborers to whom tho city
owes wages were to wait upon Mr. Mock
lcr and demand tho combination, that
ho would uot refuse to deliver it to the
proper ofllcer. In no other way, that we
can think of, can they got their money
without great delay.
