It brings the city government nearer the people, and especially protects the city exagainst hasty and penditure of money. The provision that members of the Common Coun- cil and Police Commission shall serve without pay is probably objectionable, as the time required to perform these is considerable. duties to is able city The pay J,he men who attend to her business and there is really no reason why she should not. On the other hand, this provision should bring into the service of the city men who are devoted to her material progress, and who to help her along will gladly perform the duties of the offices named to farther tho common good. Under this provision we hope to see some of our Best citizens offer for election to the Board of Aldeimen and Council. "We might mention such gentlemen as Thos. Mitchell, of the First Bank, G. "W. Ranck, Judge Hdnt, Doctor Bullock, J. Hull Davidson, J)r. J. B.

The provision for a police and sire commission meets universal approbation; a test of the system will soon be made. Taken altogether the amendments are quite sure to be a benefit to the city.

H. Gratz and some of his friends for the purpose of injuring me. His slander, stripped of his profanity, is simply this: He charges that I incited R. De Roode to make a personal attack on him, and that I had taken a good position for seeing Do Roode thrash him. This charge is absolutely and unqualifiedly false. I saw De lioodo a sew moments before the sight, and said to him: "Old Gratz gave you the devil this morning." 'ihis remark disgruntled 1 e Roode. and he a recital of his troubles with Gratz. This I cut short by saying: lYou make it red hot for him in tomorrow's Press." This gave him some comfort, and he said: "I will do my best." I then lest, saying a I did bo: "Have your copy in by 8 o'clock or it cannot go in the paper." The sight was a great surprise to me, as it had never occurred to me that either De Roode or Gratz would 1 sight under any circumstances. did think that Gratz deserved a thrashing for his violent personal attack made on De Ro"bde in his pa3 of the public per, and were of the same opinion, and is De Roode had been two feet in front of Gratz instead of two feet behind him when he made the assault, there iB no question that his act would have been generally approved. As it was Gratz got all of the sympathy and De Roode all of the abuse, tho publu seeming to forget that Gratz is about the last man in the world. who has a right to complain about anybody striking him from behind he has been at it all his life. He was striking behind when he maligned De Roode in the Btreetcar, and has been notorious all of his life for slandering people behind their backs.
