Charley, 10-year-old son of Mr
and Mrs. Henry L enhard, 2.516 Fifth
avenue, was the victim of an unior
tunate and deplorable accident yes
tarday while plaving in the yard of
nis nome. John tsiedenfuss.
14-year old lad who, with two com
panions. was stationed in the alley
oi Air. Liiennard s home, hrcd a slug
shot, the charge catching Charley
in the right eye. Dr. Plnmmer was
summoned, and although the boy
suffered greatly, he s hopeful of sav
ing the optic.
There is a special ordinance
against the use of slug shots within
the city limits, and the recklessness
which caused veaterdav's incident
ought to be made an example of.
A St: ngzla fur Recognition.
A new candidate has entered the
field of republican candidates for the
mayoraiiy nomination, in the person
of Henry Ehrhorn, who, while hop
ing to come in as a dark horee on the
last stretch, is nevertheless likely to
be heard from on the first ballot. At
the present writing the leading can
di fates are City Attorney J. L. Haas
an i Aid. William Kennedy, with the
former if anything a little in the
lead, despite the way the latter is
worsing the storm drain, and the
disclosures concerning which were
known to the city attorney before
they were to Kennedy, from whom
he received his tip, S3 it ia said.

to inaugurate the new year than to
taking the a n an e step toward thia
great project. With the prospect of
lurlhcr barbjr oev lopmcnt the citv

pretext further neglect its put..;

ing of the new year cannot adopt a
more popular course or one that will

nition of the city needa than
making the first step towatd the
Rock Is and levee Improvement, and
those who were instrumental in giv
ing the backset t3 the undertaking
when it reached the point when suc
cess waa assured last summer, can
only make amends now by giving
ihe enterprise the assistance tnat it
is worthy of. It is hardly to be sup
posed that the municipal officials who
made the grave mistake of 1896 will
desire to retire with such a record
as a public legacy.
The Mm Ureal I cp'otramt.
Tie river front is the first great
mprovement that should now en
gage the city's attention and effort.
The system of parks and drives
which is to be undertaken during
1 s.i7. will be, if the plans proposed
are adopted, independent of the city,
so to speak, and under a distinct
plan peculiar to itself, and as pro
vided for legislative unactment. So
thai in giviug its sanction to this
project, as it will of course be de
sired to have it do. ess. ntial as it
will be to have ita indorsement and
cooperation, the city will in no way
preclude the opportunity to rem ,
the disgrace from the riter front.
I he park and drive system wul he
supported bv special funds wbt-n
once established. The river harbor.
the levee, and the park and drive im
provementa, should go forward to
gether hand in hand. If the govern
ment rtcognizcs the importance of the
local harbor to the extent tbn. it ia
billing to appropriate further 'unds
that it may Ua perfected in the inter
est of comnierc-. if the state realis
ing the fi.r::f rt and peaure of
parks and drives has made their in
dependent development possible
then sorely the citv of Kick lland
cannot further neglect its boundet,
duty to advance, a? it is capable of
doing through urmness a. .1 drii r
miuation, both its commercial wel
fare and its public appearance, both
of which are involved and recognised
