SHAME AND DIS3EACE TO THE CITY
Yet These Thing nre in a City That
ItoiiMtH of n Mayor Who linn a Liking for
lulille Improvement nt Neatness
How the MrCwnorhle Pet i Allowed to
Carry Or Woiidrrrnl Sudden Activity
on the Part or the Street Clearing; l ore-!.
Have you taken a w alk across Mar
ket square recently, say from the
northwest corner of the square to the
alley, in the middle of the cast side
of the block?
If you hae not. stroll across the
square on the line indicated some
evening, about 0 o'clock, and if you
arc not disgusted with the sights
which street you, you are not over
burdened with pride in the city, and
the question will unavoidably come
to vou how can a mayor who seeks
to have his name identilied with pub
lie improvements permit such things
to exist? The veig!nnaster's quar
ters in the middle of the square,
which has bt en permitted to continue
as a disgrace despite the protests and
praVer of the business men. is bad
enough, but when the delivery wag
ons of an institution facing on the
square are permitted to be stored
about it for a night, it gives the entire
siirroundings the appearance of a
barnyard more than a public square,
while looking to the north one sees a
dilapidated looking struct lire that no
executive with pride in the city
would tolerate. Taking advantage of
a courtesy on the part of the council
in permitting the establishment of a
neat appearing booth for the sale of
fruit, nuts. etc.. the owner has per
mitted additions to be built on until
the out lit has much more the appear
ance of a relic of shant vtow n than
an ornament to a public square. And
all these tilings are permitted to ex
ist bv a mayor who poses as a pro
moterof public improvements.
The Mayor's I'et.
But this is not all. Take a look
into the alley opening from the west
side of the square while vou are
about it, and your eyes will fall
upon a heap of rubbish, such as old
cans, etc., w hich would not be tolera
ted elsewhere in a city. l!:it this
is in the very heart of the city, and
thcalcyis the one into which the
mayor's pet policemen throws the
offal of his resturant. the same indi
vidual who last night, by the way.
created quite a sensation on the
square by painfully shattering what
might naturally be termed a piece of
his own character. Hut it was all
right, as the act was performed by
one of the mayor's ofiicial family.
All Over the City.
Market square is but an index to
the entire city in the matter of slov
enliness. .Just at the present time
the mayor is attempting to --pull the
wool" over the eyes of the people by
having all the laboring men he can
get together engaged in cleaning the
pavement. It is t he tirt time in two
years the job has been at t cm pt ed and
"the mayor's cunning just at this par
ticular time is so apparent that even
those few of his own party who may
have been induced to support his
candidacy are laughing over it. The
Aiwi s hss utilv to express its hope in
connection yvitii this pas-dug refer
ence to the unprecedented reforma
tion that it will extend between now
and election day to all portions of the
city, and that' last, but not least.
Market square and the alleys which
open into it. will come in for a share
of political attention.

Is the Tm.Mill Tux Necessary?
In view of the success of the Fran
ciscan hospital, the question now
comes up as to whether the success
of the 2-mill tax to be voted on at the
forthcoming election is necessary.
The need of the hospital so heartily
commended at the time it was pro
posed, has since then been met by the
establishment of St. Anthony's hos
pital, and under these circumstances
the tax seems to the Alters to be unnecessary.

We wish to announce to our pat
rons, friends and the music public in
general that we are about to move
from our present location.
After nearly 15 years of successful
and constantly increasing business in
this city we find our present quarters
are toop'small and inadequate, conse
quently we have arranged to have a
new modern store built for us which
will be ready for our occupancy
about the first of September. The
new store will lie 40 feet front, three
stories in hcighth, containing teach
ing rooms and a large concert hall;
somethiug that yvill be an ornament
and a credit to the city.
While our store is being built, we
are obliged to occupy the store at
No. 1815 Second avenue, which yvas
lately occupied by M. Lee Gait, and
as the store is not large enough to
hold more than half the stock which
yy e now carry, we are obliged to sell
off the larger portion of our stock at
some price, and whoever is in need
of a piano or an organ we will guar
antee to make the price suit the cus
tomer. This is no advertising dodge, for
we are in shape where yve are obliged
to dispose of the stock, and are bound
to do it at some price. We will
move from our present quarters be
fore the 15th of April. The special
sale will commence immediately and
continue until we have reduced the
stock so it will go into the smaller
store. Thanking you for past pat
ronage and soliciting a continuance
of the same, I am very respectfully,
