We see by exclianges that there is a general feeling by clerks in favor of having merchante close their places of business at an early and uniform hour.

The Ann Arbor papera are busy In dlscusHltig the lawlessne, disorder and general hoodlumlam prevalllng In that city. The Coirier, without at all dlapuüug the facUt alleged by the others, declares that they ought to keep HtiU about the matter, and not let the world flnd out how bad a place Ann Arbor 1. Tal I ahoiit the logic of the CouKiER'a protest, nud t does not seem tobe good. The mout effeotl ve way ol suppresslnc any erll dolng whlch the aulhoritleH fall for any reaHon to suppress, Ib to glve lt the clearent publiclty; and the suppresslon of evll dolng 1 more Important to the welfare of a oomniunftythan thenameoflt.- Vpsllantlan. Thls sounds very much like the unfairness of tbe Ypsilantian in olden times. It was hoped that a ehange would do away to a great extent with tliat paper's antipathy for Ann Arbor and its people, but it doesu't seem to do so. Nothlng good can come out of tbis place in the eyes of tbe Ypêilantian, it seems, and our reputed evil deeds are magnilied a9 with a poweiful glass. The Cottribr did deny and does deny that Ann Arbor is a bad place. It did deny and does deny that In Ann Arbor thcre Is any more wickedness going on at sny time of the day or night than there is in Ypsilanti, or in any ether city in the state. The COürieb did assert that there is not a better place in Michigan, morally speaking, than is Ann Arbor. [t further asserted that there is not a city of lts size in Slichlcan, or in tho northwest, where ladies can go to and return from lectures, concerts and entertainment8 at any hour of the eveniig, unaccompanied by a gentleman escort with so linie fear of molestatlon, ns in Ann Arbor; in fact, we do not heliere there is another city in the state where ladie mke a practlce of attending evening enterlainments without escort. If our frlend ot the Ypsilantian would read what the Courier said, In a fair frame of niind, it would flnd that there wa no desire to cover up any wlckedness or wrong doing. It did prote9t however, againstgiving a wrong impression abroad. [tprotested and still protesta againstpickng up rumors and gossip and heralding hem to the world as evldence of wickedness in this city. It protested and still )iotest againsts putting lnto the hands of ust such writers as above quoted, a lot of malí u.}iirli a aa nti.t-r .... ., ating, to ciiitinually fling at this city. Whilo uiucli of the " stuff " that ias been written about Ann Arbor has been written thuug Iitle8aly,(niore with the dea of getting news, legitimately f posBible, but getting news any way,) it has besmirched the reputation of tho place ust the same, and unjustly besmirched t, too. The Coürier is wilüng to have the wickedness, and the goodness of Ann Ar)or compared with the wickedness and ;he goodness of Tpsilanti, or any otlier city, any day in the week, and 'has no 'ear of the result.
