Formerly it was the custom iu Cape
Girardeau for the city to furnish
dressed curbing for the sidewalks on
petition of the property owners. The
law is now changed and property
owners most furnish their own curb
ing aud build their own sidewalks.
But some of the prominent citizens
of that little burg do not take kindiy
to the change. Some two or three
mouths ago Major J. It. Dennis, apt
pearcd before the city council aud
asked the city to furnish and sc
curbing along bis property ou Mer-
riwetber street. A motion was made
to grant his request but it was voted
down as contrary tn law. But Coun
cilman Thomas Powers was a neigh
bor of Major Dennis and owned
property adjacent to that of the
major. Mr. Powers Was also chair
man of the street and wharfage com
mittee of the council. In violation of
fbc law be ordered the street com
missioner to get out and set the curb
ing opposite the procrty of Major
Dennis and also opposite his own na-
jacent property. By aud by a very
innocent looking bill was presented
to the council for getting out and set-
ting curbing. Ben Adams, editor of
the Democrat of that eit is a member
of the council. He was saucy cuough
to ask where ibat curbing bad been
set. The answer of course gave the
whole thing away.
But the bill was allowed by the
council, two members voting against
it. The nest day an article appeared
in the Demorrat severely criticising
the action of the council for allowing
Mr. Powers was offended by the
article and at toe neat council meet
ing determined to lick the editor ot
the Democrat. He asked permission
to say a few words and then launched
forth in a lout stream of abuse and
pTolaBity. He demanded that the
editor make an explanation. The ex
planation was made and Mr. Powers
then sailed in on muscle. Just how
the combat ended we do not know
but we see that Editor Adams is able
to pour in Lot shot to his heart's con
tent through the columns of his
