why they should not be nt Inched tor con

In accordance with the prayers ol the
jietition, Judge liakcr ciued a rule to
lsiic to the said Alfred 15. Sallbnl and
II. L. Morrill, commanding them to be
and appear liefore the court and show
cau-c why they should not be attached
for contempt ou account of the miscon
duct referred to by Patter, which wa
served by Sherlfl'lrvlu ou the day the pe
tition was Hied, personally upon Mr.Saf
ford, and upon Mr. Morrill ho being ab
sentby leaving a copy thereof with Jo
seph Itobinson, a clerk ot said Morrill.
that, beloro the entry of said rule J. W.
Drexel and Kdward Tracy were appoint
ed Jtecclvers of -aid railroad, in pursu
ance of au order on the said 21th Inst,
discharging tho respondent from said po
sition. He further answers that he was,
while Jiecelver, not in anywise connected
with the operation of said road, and that,
If airs were left standing on said Com
mercial avenue, it was not by his author
ity or consent : that he was, while l!e-
ceiver, acting under a decretal order of
the United Suites Cin-uit Court for the
Southern District of Illinois ; that he was
advised and Instructed by his counsel and
by one of the judges of said court that in
legal effect he was a mere servant of the
said court by which he was appointed
I'ecclver, and that It was Ids duty to obey
tho said court.
As to tho con-tructlon of a switch and
sidetrack nn Commercial avenue, Mr.
Safl'ord says that tho only action taken bv
him iu connection therewith -nn in stilct
pursuance of an order of said court, or
derlng him and eo-lleeelver to lay down
Ridel svntcb nnd said track, provided that
lu so doing in. ordinance of the City of
Cairo should be vlotatn.i. K further
says that In all his actings and iluin..$ as
Ifecolecr ol -villi road he has been actu
ated by a de-ire to forward the general In
terest ot this community, and enhance
the benefits of said railroad to Its owner-,
and the City ol Cairo especially, and
without any commensurate benelit to
liluiselt, and that bo has done nothlii"
wilfully or knowingly in contempt of the
Honorable Court or its order.
The matter came up in the Circuit
Court yesterday morning, D. T. Llue
gar, INq., representlng.'tho petitioner, and
Hon. Win. 11. Green, representing Mr.
Safl'ord. It was opened by Mr. Linegar
who claimed that It did not matter to
the court whether .Mr. S.UYord is a Re
ceiver now or not, since lie Is sought to
be attached for acts done by him while
lu the management of the road, and
there U no evidence that the new Re
ceivers have taken charge of the road ;
that he cannot excuse hlinelt by .setting
up that he was Ignorant of the acts of the
agent of the Receivers; th.it, while it
wa id- duty to obey as Receiver all tho
legal orders ol the United States Circuit
Court falling within its jurisdiction, lie
might not obey orders of that court In
conflict with former orders of the Alex
ander Circuit Court made lu strict accor
dance with Its authority, lu this con
nection Mr. Linegar a-serlcd that au or
der had been obtained for tho United
States courts lor tho express purpose of
justifying themselves iu disregarding the
Injunction ol'tho State court. Ho claim
ed that Ihe I nlted States Courts obtain
their authority to appoint Receivers
iroin tlte State laws, a, the State Courts
do, and that they cannot rightfully tram
pie upon Ihe Jiul-dlction of tho Slate
Courts by authorizing Receivers ap
pointed by such UuVed States Courts to
disregard orders of V State court inado
before tho Receivers cro appointed.
.lUIKiK lillHIIS imn.IKS.
Tho Judge opened by saying : "It Is
an ill wind that blcws nobody any
good," and applied His remark by say
ing that while Mr. Llufrar had for years
abused tho Democrats for saying that
con-ollilatlon was imminent, ho at thu
very first opportunity to bo frightened,
by tho shadow of centralization, ho had
becoiuo frightened. The Judge believed
the United States courts were slowly but
I surely absorbing the authority of tho
State courts, ami, It fio process went on,
nytuoinno ins no.ior's son took his
I seat on the bench, the State courts would
; have no authority wha'over. Hut lu this
matter tho Judge saw no reason for
alarm. 'llie rnlleii Stalos courts
have concurrent jurisdiction with the
i State courts lu this matter. The Re
ceivers appointed by Hi) United States
(courts stood lu thoplaieol President,
. Directors, nnd other sonants of Hut com
pany, and acting as tho servants of tho
court they were compelled to obey It.
Au Injunction had been Issued against
the 0. & V. company forbidding It from
doing something; hut It lxvainc, by ac
tion of tho United States court", cWlUt
wioWiiii,andtho Receivers were not liable
to thoopcrntlon of Iho Injunction. The
Judge then proceeded to ay that
permission of the Federal court ought to
have been asked to make Ihe Receivers
parties to a supplemental bill, also re
straining the Receivers from doing what
the company had been enjoined from
doing. While the railroad company Is
civilly dead In so far as its ability to do
anything gntM-tho injunction granted
against it doeVnot restrain the Receivers,
who are acting as servanlB of the United
States court, from doing anything thai
court penults them to do.
After Judge C.reeu bad concluded his
able addrc", Mr. Linegar replied In a
Very able argument.

your local columns, of Ttnirs-.y morn-
no, I was struck with surprlso iu
being informed how ono of our fruit
merchants was so badly used.
Itirccms that the gentleman inii-t have
bananas ou the brain. Perhaps the gen
tleman lias anticipated to make a raise on
the bananas, and because the boat on
which they were shipped, charged hi in a
little in oro than ho thought was right, he
now calls tho maledictions of. bcven
upon the head of sonic of our steamboat
clerks. Maybe ho forgets that he. like
all other merchants ot his class, often
cause-, the clerks of boats au amount of
trouble, solely ou account of bananas.
If,thc gentleman is possessed of all those
dlguillcd qualities of a banana merchant,
he would confer a favor on inc by visit
lug the wharf-boats of tills city, and
there he will see many of his fellow-merchants,
kindly asking, and I must say,
almost supplicating, the clerk ot a boat
to bring them a few bunches of bananas,
concluding by saying, "I will make it
all right." Tho clerk then, If he wishes
to win the esteem of all, kindly consents
to bring the fruit, providing the merchant
will be there to receive It when tho boat
arrives. According to the agreement
the boat ou her upward trip has the
bananas aboard. The clerk, as
soon as tho boat lauds at
Ibis port, looks for Iho merchant who
has ordered lliu bananas, but, to his dis
appointment, the .-iiillliiir eiinii"v "
JoliniM' i.im.'iiki Is, not mere. Let me
now ask the business men of this city,
what Is tho clerk of tho boat to do with
his lrult, for which ho paid his money t
Is ho not allowed to dispose of it iu tlio
best way possible? If the banana ujer
chant of this city will only look to
those a flairs, he will lliidout that mostly
all fruit brought to this city Is con
signed to merchants liko himself, who
instead of making it all light, contrives
to "make it all wrong."
If our banana merchant thinks ho can
not make up for his recent loss, 1 would
advise him to immediately appeal to Con
gress to have a law enacted and then en
forced, by which no one but himself ex
clusively, should have thu privilege of
buying or selling bananas. According to
the latest accounts I am afraid wo will
have a riot hi regard to bananas.
Providing bananas will not now pay
for some time, I would advise the mer
chant to Join Cairo's new show, and
within Its classic tents sell Ids bunches
of bananas. .

company, a good boat, good ollleers nnd
good weather (wo hopo) will accompany
