would prefer any otbor kind of grave to a

bo took the inevitable unlit cigar from be

THK PRISONER AKI'EOTKD. IJY
Owing to a ohanco In Ibo running time
of passenger trains on tho Cairo and Vln
cennes railroad, Judgo Ilaker and tho at
torney enetstd in the trial of Harrison
tor tho killing of Hwobodo, did not arrive
t -found City until after o'clock yot
lerday morning, and It was half psst 0 be,
roro court wag called.
The prisoner wa already in court when
the Judge arrived, which avoided any oc
CAtion for dolay.
in Jury wat called, after which Mr
Llntgar commenced lliooloslncfpeoch for
Mr, Llnegar tpoko for ovor two hours
and wat Ilttoned to with tho clotott nttcn
tion throughout by both tho Jury and
thoso who had gathered in the court-room
to hear tho spocobel of himself and Judgo
Mien. -Mr. Llnegar left no ttono tin
turned to liiiprosn the Jury favorably In
behalf of bis client. Ho btlleved IlarrI
ton wat, In a great measure, excusablo for
tho killing of Swoboda. Hnoboda and
Harrison bad been warm personal frlondt;
they had boon together on the evening of
tho killing, and had gone to the liouie
where tho homlcldo wat enacted together.
Hn believed that from tho long
and oxcottlvo uso of strong
drink Harrison's mind was not right; that
ho wat by the tllghtcst unusual occurrence
thrown Into a fit of Insanity, during which
he might commit an unlawful aot. He
believed there was tome provocation on
the part of Swoboda; that when he
opened tho door and saw Harrison In tho
hall ho raised his band as If to tako Har
rison by the throat. Thlt fact coupled
with tho fact that Swoboda, when ho on
torad the room with hi band in hit
pocket, was atkod by Harrison what he
bad iu his pocket, and that Swoboda wat a
much largor man than Harrison, wore all
circumstances which might have caused
Harrison to bsliovo that ho wat in dan
ger of bodily Injury, and If b shot
Swoboda undor such an Impression, then
tbere was nn excuse for him.
Uo spoke of tho reason wby Marrlton't
wife wat not with btm during hit trial.
It wat only becaute tho wat confined to a
tick bod. If the bad boon well tho would
most turoly have boen with her husband
aunng ma iriai. one, 11 any one, iinj a
right to accuse her husband for his coune
previout to the tbootlng of Swoboda; but
tb knew tha condition of his mind at that
time; and the knew he wat not responsi
ble for hit actt. That ttrong'drlnkt bad
drowned bit reason lhat he wat not him-

Tho following mestage from tbo mayor
was road, vetoing a bill for an ordinance
entitled "an ordinance to authorlz- th
eatre and Vlncennet railroad company to
lay down and operate a railroad track on
Twentieth ttreet from Commorclal avenue
to Levee street," vlr.:
Olntlumev or tiix City Council
I herewith respectfully return to you for
your furthor consideration, the ordinance
entitled, "An ordinance authorizing the
Cairo and Vlncennes Railroad company
to lay down und operato a railroad track
with witches, from tbe junction of Core
mercial avenuo to the Ohio levee on
Twentieth street," without my approval.
And. I bog leave to slate my reasons for
not approving tbo same.
My reuont for not approving tbe above
named ordinanco are : First, That the pe
tition asking for tbe tald railroad track it
not signed by a majority of property
ownors on laid Twentieth tret. It Is
tignod by to parti owning and operating
on 260 feet ot said streot. tbo third party
. I ! . 1 .... I . . r. J
igmug iuo pawion nas oniy a loato tor a
term of yoart on. laid property, and while
he may have control of the premise lu
quettion, ib cannot, in my judgment,
use tho right of petioning
for tbe purpose above named
Section 90 of article 5 of tbe city charttr
ttatei that tbe city council ihallhavotio
power to grant the ute of, or the right to
lay down any railroad track ln any ttreet
of the city, to any steam or horte railroad
company, except upon a petition of tbe
owners of the land representing more thau
one-half or tho frontage of the street, or to
much thereof at it tougbt to bo used for
railroad purposes. It will be aeen at once
that tbe ordlntnco in question, and passed
by you at tbo'lust meeting of tho council,
granting the right to lay down (aid rail
road track it a violation of the city, char
tor and for this roaaon if for no other can
not bo approved by me. There it another
important reeton wby thlt ordinance ought
not to have been adopted. Tb ea-cl'ilt
well aware of tbe feeling 4bat existed
in the city whea laid
railroad aompaay - tc:,fo(iet
(ionof Commercial avenue., Man they
took poteeetioa ef (aid (tree thajrhava
made many promieei.to' pnt th eireet in
good order to aa to. fully eoeap ly. wUh the
ordinance paeted by. UH oouacil, We
have only to look'at the preeeht aeadltlon
of that (treat to eea how.thef hava: com
plied with the tald ordlaiaM i judge
whether or not tbey.bave - coaaaUtai with
the requlremeate of tba city ta iUt par

from Twentieth to , TM(ajr4burtb;
ttreets, . aad no wage), TM dray
or Toblole . of any; ' ieacrlpV
Hon can ;ptM along that part of (aid
ttreet In any direction. The (aid ttreet
ha been taken possession of, aad a tingle
traok laid down near the centre, with no
immediate prospect of the balance of tbe
grading being done at ia called for In the
ordinance granting the right of way on
tald itreet to tho laid railroad company.
From Twentieth to Fourlhttreet it It in
very little better condition. The track
it laid and as yet no grading worth
mentioning ha been done. Tbe
track as they are now laid and operated
cannot, in my judgment, be called any
thing else than a nuisance, and a tuch
should be dealt with by tbe city council.
Tbe city hat been at contlderable expense
laying down ('.vising and repairing the
above mentioned street, while in my opin
ion tho repairi on tald ttreet and tbe erod
ings ought to have boon done by the (aid
railroad company. At least tbev oosrbt to
have left them in a good a condition a
wnen tney took possession.
Gentlemen, while I am as much In
favor of railroads, and will do ai muoh a
any member of the council can do to at.
tilt them, justice to the citizen demand
that the Cairo Vlncennet railroad com
pany should thoroughly complete the track
now laid down, before the council ihould
permit them to lay down any other track
on any of the other itreett of tbe city.
