The tub system is proving to bo some

the ordinance requiring citizens to ubo
these tubs instead of vaults, the city is
compelled to send a cart nround at regular
times to gather them up; end property is
taxed to defray the expenses of running
these carts. This was complied with for a
a short time but tho practico has now en
tirely ceasod to the great inconvenience of
those citizens who havo complied with 'to

It will probably interest some people

Some indignation is felt bv those of
our citizens who own cows because tho city
authorities permit Texas cattle tree passage

when it is well known that they endanger
the healthy stock wherever they go. Herds
ot these cattlo are taken from the pastures
of Texas, crowded into cars and are kept
without proper food or water tor days
while being transported to the northern
markets. As may be expected they sicken
nnd dio by scores and the carcasses are
dropped off by tho way as they pass,onto their
destination. They come here by train loads
and are kept in tho stock yards for days

hauled back of tho Mississippi levee, and
some of tho live ones even being disposed

A reporter of tho "Puducrh F iteipr'se'
visited the abode of Gen. Haskell's Salva
tion Army the other day pad has tho follow
ing to say at the conclusion of l !s inter
view with tho General: "Tho conversation
finally drifted on to tho remarks made by
individuals and articles appearing n the
papers of tho country concerning tho army
and their doings, and this finally led to
mention of tho article that ap
peared in the Co'-o Builehn, 'n which pa
ex-member of the army showed Gen. Has
kell up 'n a very bad light. Tho General
had not seen the article, when told by the
reporter' that the ex-member, Ferdinand
White, had given him somo tenlble sand
blasts to a Bixletin reporter, he simply
said : "Wo must expect to bo I aduced by
our enemies. W nitu was discharged from
the bend for conduct rnbecom'ng a mr i
engaged in this work, rnd it is iu reta'Mi-
tion for his discharge that he is now doubtj
less endeavoring to injure me and my army."
Ho poke of Waite kindly yet pla'nly, ml
positively denied tho t 'Uth of the
statements made by Wn'tc 'u his conversa
tion with The Bclle'iiN representatives.
The General also stated that the army was
not injured by such repor '. 'Our work
speaks for itself,' he said, 'rnd our clip
acters, one and all, are ireprorchable.'"
For the informatian of 'he goad people of
Paducah we will say that the General did
not discharge White from his fmy. 'lac
fact is the General begged White to accom
pany him to Paducah, and acV oowledgcd
in the presence of three gentlemen, while
on tho wharfboat and ready to board Mie
Fowler, that he had not discharged White.
It is our humble op'nion that or-city
is run rather loosely at the present time.
There are many things that have been doae

many things that should be done that rre
apparently receiving no thought from our
city fathers. The city seems to have a
slip-shod way of doing business, of which
tax-paying citizens are not apt to approve,
and for which we tako it upon ourselves to
mildly chide our municipal monarchs. Hie
first instance we recall to mind i3 the busi
ness the city has had with Mr. Cnas. Nellis.
This gentleman, under con Lract, was bound
to deliver from between five and ten thou
sand cubic yards of gravel on our sheets,
and was told that ho would be required to
give bond for the fulfillment of the con
tract. The bond was dra n up by City
Attorney Hendricks. but, being
found illegal, was not signed.
When this discovery was made another
bond should have been immediately pro
cured, and Mr. Nell's, and his bondsmen
should have been required i sij, i it before
he was pei mitted to land gravel at our what
But. apparently, it was everybody's business
and nobody's business to see that this w '
done and,henco it was left undone and Mr
Nellis was permitted to go to work w ith
his tug and barge without giv'ng secu'ily
that he would carry out the contract. He
delivered several loads ot gravel at our
wharf, but lind'ug that there wos but little
money in the job, disconi'nued it and do
voted hunselt to talk ng politics to
the farmers of the county
As a consequence, the city council end street
committee have of late been compelled to
wrestle with tho subject: "F;om whence
shall the gravel for Eighth street come,"
but as yet havo reached no defiuate con
elusion and in all probability will come to
none any too early to please the merchants
ou the street, who are anxious that it shall
be graveled at once. The city has cm
ployed City Engineer Thrupp to super'u
tend tho work, but how many street im
provements lie has superintended since the
last barge load of gravel was brought here
we leave our readers to surmise. It has
also in its employ Street Superintendent
Gorman, whom it pays sixty dollars per
month, and who slnco ho has superintend
cd tho lowering tho Eighth street has dono
little clso than overseo two
old gentlemen who patch tho sidewalks am
who utterly fail to keep them in a safe con
dition. But there is another little matter
that comes to our mind. It is this: Sev
oral months ago tho various fire companies
of the city represented to the council that
their hose was in unsound condition and
prayed that tho city procure a certain
amount of new hoso for them, Tho comp
anies being greatly in need of the hose,
the council ordered it at
onco but on its arrival hero it remained un
touched at tho depot for somo timo. Final
ly it was removed to tho Arab cngino house
to bo tosted.and there it has been every since
to tho great int'.ignation of our firemen
Tho Mayor somtimo ago requested Mr
Ch us. Fair to test it, but that gentleman
having uo gauge was unable to comply
with tho request and the prospect now Is
that thellioso will not bo distributed amoung
the various companies until somo distast
roils lire shall have occurred and proven tho
necessity of its distribution.

We have mentioned in a former issue
the fact that some unthinking had, per

to accomplish th's purpose. Wmle resort
ing to wi'ull falsehood when hey tell the

she will not bo permitted to return, they
also injure the pecuniary interests of tho

THE SILVER TONGUE!) ORATOR.
HON. JOHN H. OUEKT.Y, OP C 'HO, DELIVER
KD A POWERFUL AND ARGUMENTATIVE
SPEECH AT THE OPERA HOUSE LAST EVEN
from tho Freeport Ilulletln, Supt. SI,
At 7 :!)0 o'clock last evening the Great
Union Band stationed itself in front of tho
Opera House and discoursed somo stiring,
soul inspiring music. At 8:00 the Opera
House was filled to overflowing, many
ladies being present, all of whom camo to
listen to an address on tho issue in pending
tho present campaign, by that prince- of or
ators, Hon. John II. Oborly, the Democrat
ic candidate for tho Secretary of State.
On tho platform were seated thirty or moro
old residents of Freeport and Stephenson
County, who havo for many years been
identified with tho interests of the Demo
cratic party, arid upheld its principles. Tho
largo audience that greeted tho speaker
was tho best ovidenco of tho popularity of
Mr. Oberly, ami when ho ascended tho
platform his presence was greeted with an
outburst of applause. Ho is a flue looking
man, and presents an appearance on tho
platform that csunot fail to win tho adrai
rution of those of a different political belief.
Mr. Oberly was introduced by Dr. W.
W. Krape, who said that he esteemed it
an honor to present before the audience
one af Illinois honored sons a candidate
lor Secretary of State in other words, the
uext Secretary of State Hon. J. H. Oberly.
The speaker stepped forward, and after
acknowledging the applause, prefaced his
remarks by the statement that the issnes of
the campaign were important ones, and he
considered himself incapable of handling
them. The issue of State's rights was
carefully considered, and in a mnnner that
was creditable to the gentleman. The Re
publican bosses, such as Logan and Conk
ling, "had considerable to say about the
question, but the early history of the Dem
ocratic party proved beyond a doubt that it
was a government of the people, for the
pie and labored tor the best interests of the
nation. At the time of the organization of
the Republican party it taught the people
ot the North hatred to the people of the
South, and thus the question, Is this a na
The doctrine of evil effects of State's
rights, as adopted by ttie R.'peblicun con
vention at Chicago held in the yea: lyjr,
was then discussed.
Branching off to the disgraceful election
frauds perpetrated 'n the Sou'h and else
where, the speaker said that a free and
louest ballot is necessary, and should be
honored by the loyal cit'.ens of the Nation,
while an intimated and corrupt ballot is
more to be feared than a bullet. The inti
midatorof the ballot whoever he may be
should receive the just punishment the law
provides tor. Applause.
The law for the appointment of the chief
supervisors of election, and their deputies
wa3 then stated. The chief is kept in of
fice as long as he is capable of control'ng
elections, and it is a fact that none outside
of Republicans are ever appointed, and
none but Democrats arrested. The manner
in which the frauds were practiced in
Louisiana and New York were described,
pnd how thousands of men were arrested
and thrown into jail, released after the polls
closed, end not ever convicted.
The speaker having devoted a great decl
of time to the discussion of tho important
subject noted above, he then related the
fight of theGraut and anti-Grant faction iu
the city of Chicago the present year, within
each faction accused each other of fraud r(
every imaginable description; such as bal
lot stuffing, hauling repeaters from one
ward to another and voting them. He read
the charges of Grant mentioned in tho In-ter-Ocean,ithc
Grant paper,) and the counter-charges
of the anti-Grant men. read
from the Tribune. Each charged the other
with interfering with tho ballot box.and yet
these same Republicans accuse tho Demo
crats of being carruptionists, and them- '
selves protectors of a "free and honest bal
The speaker said he did not present
Democratic evidence it was not necessary.
The facts presented were from men who
style themselves leaders of the Republican
party iu the city ot Chicago. Tho speaker
had a great deal of respect for the Grant
and anti-Grant men such respect that he
believed the charges prcfered were true.
The fiuancial question was then discussed
nnd bundled in a masterly manner, after
which the speaker dissected tho candidate
on tho Republir.nn side lor tho Presidency
in n manner that was highly appreciated by
all Democrats present. A glowing tribute
was paid to tho record of Gen. Hancock
tho soldier statesman and after stating
that ho would give tho Republican party
anothei Gettysburg, tho speaker retired
amid great applause, and threo cheers for
Hancock and English and the entire Stato
Mr. Oberly spoke for nearly threo hours,
and made a speech that was powerful and
eloquent, and mado a good impression.
Tho meeting closed with a song by thegleo
club, entitled "When Hancock takes the
chair," and music by the band.
