only is the appointn ent one of which Mr.
Cale should feelpr md in being the only
new member ot ti e house appointed on
r, but be complimented in view of the
fact that European complications to be
dealt with this year will make the com

in the bouse.
Speakingjof the outlook for the work
of the session, Mr. Cable said, "you may
rest assured there will be no halt in the
tfforts in the liie ot tariff reform
to which the democratic msjirity
in tbe house is con mitted, and with the
consent of tbe republican senate and

Mayor McConoch e this morning is
sued tbe following order to Chief of Po
Mayor's Office. I:ock Island, Dec. 80.
Phil Miller, Superintendent of Police
St You will instruct the cflbers unl t
j our charge to strictly enforce the ordi
nance in relation to carrying and using
firearms within the city limits.
The mayor supplements this order by
an t-xpWnatarr note in which he sajs.
"This order is issued in consrquence of
numerous complaint being tiled in this
office from all sectors of tbe city,
against the irrcprtf t ible small boy, who
is abroad in tbe land, armed with a small
tpecies of rifle which shoots powdtr and
ball. In his wild endeavor to capture
and bag the royal game known as the
English sparrow he is entirely regardless
of where his missiles may go or who
they may bit. I am infoimid this gun
will put a ball through an Inch plank at
100 yards, which if true, is altogether
too dangerous a wear on to be used upon
tbe streets as a toy."
This is a wise precu!ionary measure
on the part of thj mtyor. It looks di
rectly to the interestn of public safety
and pursues just such a course as The
Akgus ursed when tbe sparrow slaugh
