The Yollowing insurance companies,

Ill Sttrnt The Charges Prefrrrctl
It is already known to many of our lo
cal readers that Mr. Patrick Mockler,
city clerk, ha been suspended from hU
office, because of charges of corruption,
malfeasance In office and incompetency,
preferred against him by the city treas
urer, Mr. John Hyland.
These charges aro to tho effect that Mr.
Mockler, without tho authority of law,
collected license .money from sundry citi
zens and refused to pay over the samo on
demand to tho officer authorized to re.
ceit'e it; that he had deliberately
and corruptly proposed to tho treasurer
to divide the money between them that
should come In to tho city treasury, and
to do, as ho alledged others had done,

The Cnlro ,1- Ml. I.oitla Hoilroxil,
The St. Louis 'Democrat' is of the
opinion that St. Louis has never been
asked for help in the work of building
the Cairo & St. Louis railroad. As that
city Is one of the parties in interest, she
should move in the matter of her own
volition. Why should she wait for an
appeal for help? Sho Is vitally Interest
ed, and should havo taken action, unso
licited, as Cairo and other interested lo
calities have done. But is It true that
St. Louis has not been applied to for as-
1 distance? If wo mistake not, tho claims
of tho project wero urged upon the atten
tion of the principal citizens of St. Louis
