from the St. Louis Jlrpu'Mean a partial
report of the proceedings of the meeting
of the board of directors or tho Cairo

mark: "Wc de-Ire to say, that It seems
to us that some or our iieople are more
Inlere-ted in the Cairo and St. Louis narrow-gauge
railroad than in.the prosperity
ol the city or Cairo."
Thl is Indellnlte. We think we know
what The Sun means, tint we would like
our neighbor to be a little more definite.
It" The Sun means to insinuate a charge
upon the re-ideiit directors of the Cairo
and St. Louis railroad company, will The
Sun please say so? We are one of the
director, and we wish to know whether
The Sun believes ic? are more Interested
In the Cairo ami St. Louis railroad than In
Cairo, and If o, why The. Sun bclives this.
h The Sun aimed Its arrow at Col, Taylor
and Judge HrosS, will it pleads sav so,
and tell the people why it did so r We are
seeking lurormatiou, thererore we ask
The Sun to be more deliulte in Its
charge. Do, please.

was praUcd very highly by tho'o who

highly praUcd 'y all present. Mls Jessie

very well done. The next In order was

about, nnd left the stage amid the looil

Hoe Winston then took the stage, and
concluded the debate on rights by read
