'We have doctori, and with undertaken

may be necessary to state, still furnish to
the few people wbo will dip, in spito ot all

but, unless tho city becomes less healthy
neither will rely upon bis present business

ANSWERS AND QUESTIONS.
Wo wish to bo as courteous ai possible.
Wo dopro;atu anything liko excitement,
puticularly in tbeso sanguinary times;
we love poaco ; the groat object of our lifu
It to get a vine and llg trou and sit In the
shadow thereof unvoxod hy iinythiiig lior
dorlng upon impationco; but, for all this,
and at tho risk of offending our neighbor
of tho 'Sun,' wo aro compelled to say that
ho is well, at least confounded stupid.
So mo body has written for him rertuin
questions about the Cairo rnd St. Louis
railroad, nnd theso ho keeps before the
people, uiking The Bulletin- to answer,
intimating that wo cannot answer tboui.
Now, for the purpose of gratifying tho
person or persons who Induced tbo 'Sutr
to nsk tho questions (and being a preach.
or, tho 'Sun man will not deny that ho
has been instigated to inako the inter
rogatories i, wo will reply to them ono by
one. , t
Hero it) tlio first question -
Pica'O toll the pooplo, in case Alex under
Union nnd other counties furnish nil tbo
money to build the Cairo and St. Louis
railroad, except that raised by tho sale of
tbo mortgago on thu railroad 'itself, what
intrrost will these counties lmvo in trio
railroad, and what Interest will llowland
and aisociatos have?
Thn ronntinf. vn rrnl'lmc. wll: Imva
J1"1 M much intcros t in tho road as tbey
own 'oc'i ai'd Payson 5c Co., if thoy i-om-
Hutu vuu ruau, tvui imiu n iinu uimjiui..
l'ayton ir Co., will, of courso, control tho
road, bocau4o tboy will own tho msjorlty
of tho fctock. Tho 'Sun' man ouibt to
know that such u question carrln on Us
faco Its answer.
The next question is:
1'lcaso toll tbo puofilo, who nrr Ifow-
land and associutus V
Vayson and Cinda, and nobody tl;o.
Tho next question is:
Will not tho counties rocoive for ouch
dollar of bonds thoy glvo tho railroad, one

any balance of thn tint and second
mortpago bondx, not used in the construe
tion uf thu road, bo divided in like man
To tho llrst question of (bis question :
Vet; of course. To Urn noit question:
There will lie no llMt nnd second
morlgngo bonds not used in the construc
tion of the road. All thu flrst'mor'.gsgo
bonds have been disposed of already nnd
all tbo money realised from tbcm tunk
in tho rond. Tho second mcrtgago bonds,
If sold, will Hot furnish enough monoy to
jay what Is duo lo the contractors and
finish tho rond. 'So explain : There
is now due lo the company from counties
and cities t l&'J.OOO of bondu, which tho
company cannot obtain becauso thu bonds
aro enjoined. Thoso tho coinnany'bwn to
Payson A Co., but cannot pay tbcin be
cause thoy aro In court. When tho road
Is completed, tlioro will ho duo tho com
pany 5307,000 more of bonds, making a
total of $810,000 bonds of towa nnd
counties. Now tho company say: "We wil
issuo $850,000 of second mortgago bonds,
and In tho mortgage (tipulato that when
wo obtain tbo .I8'J,001 of bonds duo us
und tied up lu court, nnd tho $307,000
bonds to be earned by a completion of tho
road, thoso bonds shall not bu sold by the
company but bo placod in tho linuda of a
truiteo hi ollatoral necurlty for tho sec
ond mortgngo bonds." Thu 'Sun' can
seo that such mortgngo bonds will not sell
for anything unless thoro lc a "doed suro
thing " of getting tho bonds tbo company
hasn't got. Wo can think of
no persons who could bn in
duced to buy such bonds
under present circumstances but tbo
holders of the llrst mortgage bonds. They
might do so, in order to sucuro tho com
pletion of the road, and thus increase -Iho
vluof tho security ol" tbo first lionds.
So, tho 'Sun' soot, there will bu no balanoo
of either llrst or second mortgago bonds.
Tbo next question is:
Furthor, will you not, lor tho benefit or
tho peoplo of Alexander county (whom
you, under tbo appointment of tho tiov
ornor, aro in duty bound to protect), will
you not publish tho original contract mado
with Mowland nnd associates, nnd also tho

We will not publish that uontract un
