VERT dark and threatening clouds gathered in the western . horizon lust evening, and thoro was every appearance of a fearful storm impending, bui the clouds swept around towards the north and only a light shower fell hero ; but at Godfrey and north of there, there was a tremendous down-pour of ram for half an hour. EVERT member of the present Council, but five have been given a certificate of public "respect and confidence" by repeated elections. They are evK dently the meti the people wane, as they nave been repeatedly "endorsed" by i heir constituents. Nearly every member of the present Council has downed "a good man" in reaching his present position. They are, clearly, the men in whom the people have "respect and confidence." If there is any other test of popular feeling will some body tell us what it isP— Alton Democrat. Of course the Council has the respect and confidence of tho organ'of .the city administration, but if the Democrat can mention anyone outside of its office and not connected with tho administration, who shares in this sentiment, as regards the Council taken collectively, now is the time to mention it. What has this Council ever done to merit public confidence? Has it not always been guided by selfish private interests instead of broad public policies P Has it passed any measure of benefit to the city? Has it.improved the condiiion of our streets? Has it improved our commercial facilities? Has it done any thing to stimulate business activity, or advance the price of real estate P Has it demanded tho enforcement • of its own ordinances, or has it sat supinely by .and permitted the administration to trample the ordinances of tho city under foot without protest? When the organ has answered these questions satisfactorily we have some more for it to solve. • (SpeoiftitoAJtial™,^.^., , ST.
