The Great Problem solved at
F. A. Tyler, Esq , has at last solved
the great problem which has puzzled the
brains of so many long heads for the
last twelve or eighteen months (with
Col. McDavitt at their heal) of getting
the city out of debt, and putting her
finances on a. cash basis. How eiraple
and plain the whole sulject is managed
in s very few words, and yet how Intri
cato the subject has been, when pre
sented to the best financiers of our city.
lbe whole story is this : sell what can
be sold, and collect what is due the city.
Thia puts the whole subject in a nutshell.

been done with that I have not heard. I
know, however, Henderson's idea was
that Flippin wished to get possession of

was afterwards a Federal soldier abiut
one year, and that ho was leader of the

men from our jail, and is supposed to be
associated with them.
