The Clerk stated to the Council that Pat Murray desired to have .$3.70 deducted from the bill pre sented for excavating cellar, owing to the fact that the city had not caused the removal of all the earth from his cellar.

The evi dence in each case was heard, and motion not to revoke license was made and carried in each instance. At the request of Samuel Gass his license was changed from lot 3 to lot 1 in block 117. The following preamble aud res olution offered by North at previous meeting was taken up and on mo tion adopted : Wheheas, It is believed by the members of the City Council that there is a desire on the part of a large number of the citizens of Co lumbus to do away with the office of Night Police for the reason that it is an expense to the city for which there is very little need, therefore be it llcsolccd, That the office of Night Police be and the same is hereby declared vacant for the term of from November first, 1S78, uutil the ucxt general election.

The Clerk was also directed to issue warrants on special fund levied for the construction of side walks agaiust such property and for amounts as specified in special ordinance levying such tax. On motion, Council adjourned. John Schram, City Clerk. In a conversation Saturday with one of our wheat buyers, he tells us to advise farmers to hold their wheat for a better market. The railroad was blocked, and it was impossible to obtain cars. He thought the reason of it was that great numbers, of cattle were bciug shipped from the west over the U. P., and that all the extra cars were being used for this work. In this trade they had to compete with the B. & M., but, east of Grand Island, they would get the carrying trade any how, and the other, having to be done now, they couldn't afford not to get it. This is one of the beauties of having no competition. The Era says that "every man who casts his vote against Mr. Hen ry for commissioner will say by his ballot that he is opposed to an economical administration of our county affairs, opposed to every needed enterprise, opposed to low taxes, opposed to impartiality and an unswerving purpose to be and do right." Now we undertake to assert that Mr. Wise's record as commis sioner (and our opinion is that he will be allowed to make a record) will show that he is not opposed to an economical administration of county affairs; that he is not oppos ed to needed enterprise; that he is not opposed to low taxes ; that he is not opposed to impartiality and an unswerving purpose to be and do right. Whatever good the Era may have to say of the Democratic nom inee, it ought not to be necessary for that sheet to slander the fair fame of Johu Wise, by saying that those who vote for him, are in favor of high taxes, uncalled-for expendi tures, partiality, economy and an unswerving purpose to do wrong. The chief business of an editor is still to keep lies out of his paper.
