A Fiona Thought! on Waterloo,
Editor XPuas:-We attended a
meeting of the common council of the
town ot Waterloo a few nights sine
and it was truly an experience fraught
with danger aau a desire not to return.
The meeting was called to order by
T. L. Rice, mayor. After the usual
routine work tbo council got down to
business, when J, H.' Turpln Intro
duced an ordinance bill aud warmly
supported it, a bill to repeal all ordi
nances or parts of ordinances relating
to gaming or gambling of any nature
whatever. The ordlnauee bill passed
along quietly to the final vote. The
motion was niiule and met with a
second that the bill do paw. After the
motion had been duly put by the chair
the fun begun. Recorder J. C. Hutton
in a brief speech gave the council to
understand that he would not counte
nance any act of the kind, neither
would he attach his official seal to the
document. He also held that it meant
impeachment to all who voted for the
nefarious thing. After this the vote
came. Councilmen voting aye, J. H.
Turpln, J. Filling, J. Greeu; nay, J.
Harbin. The recorder refusing to at
tach hia name to the bill glvlug the
mayor the opportunity to veto it, the
mayor Immediately tendered bis resig
nation, which was duly accepted. The
marshal also felt it hia duty to stay
with the cause of justice and resigned.
J. Harbin, councilman, also left grace
fully by tendering his resignation.
Recorder Hutton, than whom there is
none more upright and Just in this be
nighted village, fell in line with the
general move and was released from
the duty of clerk.
The council has been since filled by
appointment anil gives geueral satis
faction, we suppose, to the general
The present acting marshal, T. M.
Devine, was marshal last year and
many will renumber his gallant ac
tions on the 4th of July last. He will
no doubt do as well this year.
The mayor at present is J. H. Tur
pln, the councilman who introduced
the bill that cauted the general stam
pede. A man who will write and
introduce a bill of the kind and nature
of the one that caused the "ruction"
will no doubt bring the morals of the
town to a high standing.
We learn since that the bill has been
remodeled by another. We have also
heard it rumored that the council has
repealed the fish law, but trust this is
only a hoax.
Had the bill passed, any gambler
could set up his faro layout in the pub
lic slreels and run all day or until euch
a time as someone went to Sndavill
and procured a suite warrant.
The bill, was attempted to be passed
for the benefit of those who will take
the money of a minor, eveu tmall
boys, hy a game of chance.
Tile council is now complete by hav
ing things their own way, and we
truly trust the good people of the town
are satisfied with the change that will
throw open, so t speak, the gates of
hell for the youth of the town.
Saturday nigh i was only a starter,
when dancing w is kept up until the
wee small hours. Drunks and yelling

Sodom was a place of morality com

t has the future in store for us? But

will try to suppress the wild and

j lh duty of "doing the town."

The town council had a called meet
ing last week, to repeal the ordinances
governing gambling. The ordinances
were repealed on the first ballot. J
C. Hutton, the reo irder, then made a
speech that would have done credit to
Patrick Henry. T. L. Rice, mayor,
then tendered his resignation, followed
by J. Harbin, councilman, F. A. Glea-
son, marshal, and J. C. Hutton, the
recorder. The resignations were ac
cepted. J. H. Turpln was elected as
mayor pro tem, Mr. Coshow recorder,
and W. L. Hunsacker councilman. T.
M. Devine was appointed marshal.
