Commissionkr Roukrts has recently cleaned the streets and gutters and put them iu tine ibape. The reorganized vil lage by laws contain a prohibition, enforced hy penalties, against scattering hand bills, dodgers, etc, or papers of any kind, on the streets and sidewalks. This law is con tinually violated. Recently a vender of some nostrum drove through the streets with a trumpeter scattering his advertise menfs rightand left, but he was not arrested and tlued as the law commands. Almost every day in the week some bill peddler scatters printeil paper along the streets, and there is no interfereuce. Bunches of haud bills advertising various shows are nailed to telephone or electric light poles, pulled ofl by passers-by, thrown ou the sidewalk or tossed in the gutter, to be whisked into the street to frighteu horses aml dUflgUte the town, aml no otlicer of the law iuterposes. Not longago an urchin, at a time when the streets were ankle deep with limestone mud, was wheeling a load along the sidewalk, as near the curbstoue as he could go, and was summarily ordered into thestreet. That was all right euough. Now let the same zeal be employed to abate the bill-peddling nuisauce. Euforee all the by laws, and partieularly so wholesome an one as this against scattering paper along the streets. To euforee these laws is, we be lieve, one of the duties the police are hired and paid to perform. But what is the use of Commissioner Roberts trying to keep tho streets neat and tidy if tlie by laws against scattering paper, and others of a similar churacter, are uot strictly enforced? Ohltuary.
