be a saving of about eighty dollars per

Col. Hupfer was summoned to serve
on a jury Wednesday. Not being anxious
to devote half a day to the thankless work

no; but he wanted to know if he was not

Two propositions will come before

Another subject that will be considered
is the scheme of levying an occupation
tax . At the present time the propriety of
such a tax is questionable : even in flush
times it would not be popular, and should
only be levied in cases of emergency.
Every one is aware of the fact that money
has been very scarce during the past four
months, and in spite ot the increase in
population, cash trade has not been up to
the average. Profits have been, small.
Is it good policy to add to the burdens of
business men under such circumstances?
A reduction would be more in order. If
the council looks at the question fairly, it
would seem that ways and means can be
provided without increasing taxes. A
very good plan, and one of the best that
can be suggested to accomplish this, is to

The City Election.
The time for the city election is ap
proaching, but so far there has been but a
small amount of talk on the subject. So
far as candidates are coucerned, this
family paper is not in favor of drawinjr
party lines. We Ijave a State and Nation
al canvas before us, and before the sum
mer is ovej- we ate Ukply to get all the
agitation on political subjects we want.
and we see no reason why an element of
that kind should be .injected into munici
pal affairs. Our present Mayor, Geo. W.
Hammond, we presume will be a candi
date for re-election, although we have no
authority to; make such "4' suggestion .
Bjs administration is intimately connected
with the water works improvements now

his election may be considered larrfendorse

candidates, no doubt, who1 'wtfiiia make
excellent representatives for thj? dty, and

thing The Tribune will insist-on, and
that is a more strict enforcement of the
