Ho has already uiado'hls mark in that body by his energy, ability, Integrity of purpose and fearlessness of expression. His noble, manly speech, yesterday, in favor of enforcing the ordinance requiring the closing, of saloons on Sunday, made him a host of friends and brought him to the front as tho champion ot law and order. Ho was ably supported by Aldermen Hewitt and Boall and others, who are equally earnest and out spoken in advocacy of enforcing tho laws and ordinances as they stand.

Perfectly beautiful and the very latest n Swiss Embroideries and Flouncings, at Pierson & Carr Dry Goods Go's. •_ dwlt IT seems strange to hear a sensible man like Alderman Bissinger making he plea in the Council that enforcing he Sunday closing ordinance is "perse* outing the saloons." "Persecution," n'deed I The fact Is that the saloons in Alton, with one or two exceptions, htive een violating the law for years, defying ubllc sentiment and striving to control he action of the executive officers ef tho ity. And flow when it is proposed to have them obey the law, like other itizeng, Alderman Bissinger cries out hat they are being "persecuted." The aw is no new thing; the saloon keepers knew what it was when they went nto the business; tho restrictions ilaced on the dram shops here re milder than in almost any ither city in the Uuion; tho saloon keepers have nothing to complain of, and if all would comply with the law hey would have no trouble. In fact, o long as they do comply with the law lelther the Mayor, the Marshal, nor any ono else has any legal right to in tor- ore with them. All the trouble they have hey bring upon themselves. But we lall tho attention of Alderman Bissinger o the fact that if the saloon men are 'persecuted" in Alton it must bo aproi- y healthyikind:of "persecution." They all look fat and prosperous and the business must be decidedly lucrative or o many would not engage in it. This administration owes nothing to the aloons. With two or three exceptions he saloon men did their best to defeat t. The meaning of tho last election vas that the people demanded the inforceuiont of the laws and would be atisfied with nothing less. Advice to Mothers. Mrs. Wlnslow's Soothing Syrup, for ihildren teething, is tho prcsorption of me of the best female nurses and phy- iciiins in tho United States, and" has eon used for forty years with never- ailing success by millions of mothers or their children.
