The program was a very good one and delighted the largo audience of yonng people. A Christmas tree was one attraction and beside It was erected an imitation Morro castle of packages of candy and nuU, which Rev. J. M. Gaiser explained was o-e of the trophies of the late war and was how being used to promote happiness and festivity for the occasion. At the close of the entertainment Mr. Ohas.

If the work is done in the manner charged by its critics, that U: instead of be\ng first class concrete, It Is little better than sand and loose stone; instead of being six inches In depth, it averages less than four, that fait should be established so clearly that there can be no doubters, and the guilty parties should be proceeded againet. Serious charges have not only been made against the Fifth street paving contract, but against nearly every other contract for a year or two. The contractors have besn charged with •'slimming" the work in order to get BllUlLUHJK ii»»w »i **• *— - — — — onb with a whole skin, because their bids would not permit them to do the work as specified in the contracts with out loss. The city officials have been charged with collusion with the contractors because they have had charge of the work and then accepted it very soon after completion, and because they have apparently been opposed to Investigation. For the good name of these officials, for the good name of Alton, and for the good name and reputation of the contractors, if they have performed their work well the Investigation should be made and the false charges forever laid.

The Mississippi Valley railroad is to be bnlltand there is no doubt about it. The question of whether or not the City Council of Alton grants a franchise to the company will have noth- lagtodowith the completion of the present plan of the company and .Is u'timate consummation. Mr. Men- ling, who has from the first bean the moe< active person in securing the right-of-way through the county, has gone to New York, and is now negotiating with the capitalists who are interested in tha enterprise. Before his departure for the East, Mr. Meh- lingexpreieed it that bis company would build the road even though the city of Altoc'd consent cauhot be obtained. The road will be built to Alton, too, that is to the outskirts of the city, and there, it a franchise to run over the streets of Alton cannot be obtained, the road will stop. The company does not mean to make a threat of defiance to the city, as nothing of the kind is intended; but as all plans for the construction of the road having been made, the promoters do not feel disposed to abandon the [enterprise. Some talk was indulged in by friends of the Mississippi Valley Co., in the council, that a special meeting would be called to pass the amended ordinance granting the franchise. This will prabably not be done as at present it is deemed adv s- abletS defer action to the January meeting of the council.
