fact that some peop !e have an aversion to
doing things in accordance with the pop
ular desire. With public officials this is
sometimes so. A newspaper is supposed
to voice public sen Jment. Thk Argus

will. It was strictly in the pursuance of
such a mission that attention was repeat
edly called, last we ;k to the necessity of
cleaning the paved streets, but tbe mat
ter was neglected ut til yesterday morning

to get . Second avenue and Eighteenth

street cleaned up, and not particularly
good at that. Freezing weather stopped

accumulation of . the fall lying on tbe
pavement in these portions all winter as
an evidence of official obstinacy.

Cow was not satisfactory and Clinton

pay it and tbe suit was tbe outcome
