Dissolute Characters

are having a hard time of it just now, the police having undertaken to bring all persons before the Mayor who are here unemployed and without visible means of support. Yesterday three young men were arraigned on this charge, and after a hearing were released, the officers being instructed to have their eyes on their future movements. This is no time for drones. Every man should be at some honest employment so as not to become a burthen upon the working hive. The country needs industry, properly applied, and must have it.
