It quoted as tbllowsi "Article V, div. 94, p. 221, revised statutes:" "The City Council shall provide, by ordinance, that all tho paper, printing, stationery, blanks, fuel, and all tho supplies needed for tho use ot tho city shall bo furniihed by contract lot to tho lowest bidder."

PRESIDENT Laying, of the I. & St. L. in an interview in St. Louis, Saturday, expressed himself as opposed to the Merchants' bridge and terminal corns pany, and in favor of tho Gould bridge and tunnel terminal project which Mayor Francis has vetoed. If tho lat- tor project is not successful the Bee Line Jwill continue to make East St. Louis, instead of St. Louis, its western terminus. This the Democrat announces Is "the law." Turning to the statutes we find that article V, aforesaid, is headed: OK THE POWERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL 62, sec. 1. "The City Council in cities and the Board of Trustees In V11-. lagos shall have the following powers." These powers are then enumerated, and div. 94 reads as follows: To provide by ordinance that all tho paper, printing, stationery, blanks, fuel and all tho supplies needed for tho use of tho city shall be furnished by contract let to tho lowest bidder. Taken in connection tho reading is, "The City Council shall have power to provide, by ordinance," etc. There is nothing mandatory about It: tho law simply says that the {Jcouncil has the power to pass such an ordinance if it desires. But the Democrat deliberately, and with intent to deceive the Aldermen.perverts the law for its own purpose. The leaving out of section 1, and inserting the word "shall," which is not in the original, is as high handed and out* rageous an attempt to deceive tho Council as could well be imagined. What tho Democrat calls "tho law" is not the law. It purposely mutilates and changes the meaning of the statute, by interpolating a word which is not contained therein. Further the word "printing" as quoted from the statute has no refers ence to newspaper publication, but refers to job work only. But, supposing the law was as the Democrat says, how does it explain the fact that it has been doing the city printing (job work) for the last two years, at its own figures? What kind of."oontraet" is that? In regard to tho publication of the Council proceedings, ordinances, etc., the city papers have, for tho last four or five years, been bidding for it at figures way below cost for the "glory" of being the "official" paper. But there is no profit in that kind of "glory" and the TELEGRAPH has come to the conclusion that it does not want the proceedings unless the Council is willing to pay a figure that will at least cover expenses, and therefore does not intend to enter into any cut-lhroat competition to do tho city publishing for less than cost. Of course a paper could afford to publish proceedings and advertisements at less than coat provided it was given the city job printing at its own figures as has been the case with the Democrat the past two years, but not otherwise. As for us our space ia valuable. We have not a dead udver-< tisonient or a nen-payiuy; inch of space in our paper, and while wo shall be glad to do tho Council publishing for a reasonable compensation wo do not intend offering«to do it way below cost, whatever bid we may have made there- for in prior jears.
