It can hardly be denied by fair-minded men that it is right and proper that the party which carried this city by over 3,000 majority on the issue of building the new City Hall should have control of its erection. Yet, whenever an effort is made by the Committee on Grounds and Buildings to assert their rights, a howl is immediately raised in a certain quarter, and the dominant party is urged not to do anything that will retard the progress of the work. This is all bosh ! We are informed that Colonel Cutshaw expressed his opposition to the present system of building the hall be...

PEOPLE'S COLUMN. [This column is thrown open to the public for brief correspondence. The management is in no wise responsible for what appears in it.] City Bonds. Editor Truth /—For information, I would like to make the inquiry as to the why and wherefore of the ever-echoing cry of retrenchment whenever any proposition is made for the public good involving the expenditure of the city's money. 1 have not heard that the bonds representing its present indebtedness are depreciating in the least. In fact, if lam correctly informed, 1 believe it is a very hard matter to buy one of them except at exorbitant rates. I am not myself a bloated bondholder, therefore know but little about these things except what I hear, so pardon my ignorance, please. However, it strikes me that some of the good people who do hold these evidences of linancial obligations are not able to see two dollars behind one, and are content to draw their interest without regard to the damage being done by them and their f...

The turn taken in the State debt fight of sending lawyers to jail is getting to be about as ridiculous as Southern dueling. Honor is satisfied by their going inside the bars with a writ of habeas corpus ready to take them out. The contest between the Dispatch and Judge Bond waxes warmer every day. It is a little unequal in some respects—the Judge having the power to enforce his opinions, while the Dispatch has the opinions without the power to enforce them. The whole amount paid Wait & Cutter for that plan for the City Hall which was never used foots up about $12,000. This was a piece o...

It has been opposed most strenuously ; all sorts of objections have been raised ; all sorts of .-pi tches against it made ; all sorts of attempts to stifle it.

Mr. Semmes, as attorney for the company, called Mr. Charles H. Latrobe, the well-known engineer, as a witness, and introduced a plat made by Mr. Latrobe to show that there was no difference between the bridges as llaally completed and the original specification...

Who can tell us how much money was thrown away by the gentlemen who did their level best to build no City Hall ?

PEOPLE'S COLUMN. [This column is thrown open to the public for brief correspondence. The management is in no wise responsible for what appears in it.] SIGNS. The Present Ordinance Regulating TJiem, and the Way the Law is Enforced. Editor Truth : —One of the leading features of a merchant is that of an attractive sign, and it is essential that every facility should be given so that he will receive all the benefits arising therefrom-. At the same time, it is right that a strict regard for uniformity should be observed respecting them, so that the public thoroughfare is not interfered with; also, that every citizen should be posted well as to size of sign and distance allowed. Now, from daily observation, the ordinance which was passed in 1875 is being violated continually through those requiring them being ignorant of the law; therefore we desire to call the attention of our merchants to the fact of scarcely a sign that projects from the building being within the law—viz.: to be made ...

Restore the American Flag on the Ocean [National Republican, 10th.] The April summary of imports and ex ports contains, as usual, a great deal of Interesting information, and some which should bring a blush to the face of the members of the American Congress. Of this latter kind are the facts as to the manner in which our foreign commerce is transported in foreign ships. The whole value of our imports and exports for the month of April was $111,219,923, of which $82,356,205 worth was transported to and froin the country in steam vessels. Foreign steam vessels carried $72,567,199, and American vessels the remainder. Less than 12 per cent, of the commerce of the country for April transported in steam vessels was carried under the American f1ag—535,300,000 of American goods were sent abroad in steam vessels, and $2,500,000 (only 7 per cent, of it) in American ships.
