A carpenter by tho name of John
Ovcrby fell from the scaffolding on this
Turners' Hall, a dlstanco of about 20
lect.yp-derday morning, nnd shattered his
left iiiikle terribly. Tim suftcrer was
taken to Ids home on Fifth street, and
i)rs. Dunning and l'arker called In, who,
alter examining thn injury, pronounced
it very serious ; in fact so serious that
nuipuratlon may bo necessary. The .suf
ferer Is a hard working mechanic and
quite poor, and the loss by tho accident
will fall very heavily on lilinelfand fam-
'J'lie Turner Hull.
Th" Turner Hall, now being erected ut
the corner of Tenth mid l'oplar streets
will be, when llnished, quite a roomy
and substantial building. Thn dimen
sions are30xC5 feet, nnd the height of tho
main hall 18 feet. Over the front en
trance a second story will be added, and
n room l.'xltO will K- partitioned oil", in
which the society will hold Its meetings.
The main Hall will be nicely iiuislicd oil,
and will be used by the society as the
gyniua-luui and hall, in which will be
placed their turning poles, dumb bell-',
Mo. Tho entire cost of the structure Is
estimated at $1,."00. Mr. T. N. Klinbro
has the contract for the carpenter work,
nnd will soon complete his portion of the
work. The contract, for tho plastering
nnd other portions of the work has not
yet been awarded. Tho society numbers
among Its members gome of the most en-torprl-lng
of our Gorman citizens, and
the commendable zeal which they have
manifested lu building their hall during
the dull season, should be, and no doubt
!, appreciated by our citizens.

Centre street, one of the principal
thoroughfares in the Fourth ward, Is
now, and lias been for a long time, utter

It is a crying shame to our city tbat
some one doe not take hold or this line
and substnuti.'il building aud put It to
some use. It is one of the most substan
tial .nnl carefully built brick buildings In
this city, aud could be adapted to nlmost
any kind of manufacturing Industry, and
we do not -ce why some of our enter
prising citizens, who have capital, do not
take hold and do something with It.
There has been one or two efforts made
to do something with It, but like almost
everything else in Cairo they lacked en
ergy. The city has an Interest In the
building, and we should think she would
do something toward starting such a
movement on foot.

Why don't the Mnyor Investigate the
rumor that a night policeman ha been
putting on a substitute'
It Is said that Marshal Williams lias
threatened to "Impeach" Mayor Winter,
II Mayor Winter dares to remove him.
The .S'uu says we know nothing
about the proposed Tax-Payers' League.
We have told the .Vim what Its purposes
are, nnd thnt many of the let citizens of
Cairo nre lu It,
Who Is the Alderman the .S'mi rcler
rcd to us desiring to run the city V Why
not tell us: Is the .Viot so great it pol
troon Ihat it dare not mention the name
of the Alderman It referred to ns the
would-be runner of the city ':
Mayor Winters lias een employing
Justice, of the Peace Comings lu the
work of taking nflldavlts in relation to
the official conduct ol Whitcauip and
Schuster. This has the appearance of a
re-opening of the battle about the police
men. We have not ascertained what the
affidavit; coutaln, but when Jnck moves
in the aflldavit direction he makes things
count. We do hope that Ksoulie Coin-
lugfiadnilnlstered the oath to Iheailldavlt
makers. If he has, It may save hhn the
trouble of doing his work over again.
The Siin ndmlts that the dlipatch
sent by .Mr. Davis to the Otohf-DrmiH-mt
about tie- "rapid strides" of the river to
ward the top of our levees was liable to
mlscoilruction, and that the dispatcher
meant to say that tho county nroiind
about Cnlro was In danger, and that no
one inside our levees felt any alarm. In
deed! Then what did Mr." Davis mean
his dispatch to the Inter-O.-tan. hi
which he said: "The Ohio Is fortv-four
n and eight Inches on the uanee. At
forty-seven feet our levees nro In danger.
The rlvir Is still rising, nnd alarm Is felt.
a tug rise is reported to-day nt Padinsih.
Business nlmost nt n standstill:-" Did he
mean by this that alarm was felt by our
cltlens for "the region 5" It will not do.
The fact Is, D. was at the time he wrote
the dispatch in a Hood panic.
The .S'km says that we took no steps
towards investigating the rottenness of C.
& St. L. IS. IS. nflalrs, and Ihcn-aye:
"Here we have a man appointed bv the
Governor to a position nf honor and
trust, to look nttcrthe city - Interests,
permitting wrong? against Its jieople to
be perpetrated, and then falling to push
the matter to an Investigation. Is Mr.
Oberly a friend of Cairo V If he
is, why don't he appeal to
the law in beliair of the
people r" Wehaveno hesitation; in pro
nouncing the author of this stuff as either
a deliberate falsllleror an ass. .Mr. Da
vis knows that as a director we voted
against issuing more than $3,iW0.OiX) ol
stock: that we endeavored to Induce the
old board to not permit the contractors to
take Dossession of the road before It was
completed according to contract; that
tailing in tin we reported to the ity

The river last evening was 1.1 feet 1
and -1-.") Inches ou the gauge.'.havhig risen
1 aud 1-5 Inches during tho preced
ing 21 hours. The present rise is out ot
the Ohio, nnd lu all probability will not
amount to anything, as tlie Missis
sippi is falling from this port to St. Louis.
Verv heavy drift floated out of the Ohio
yesterday, thickly Interspersed with
green corn. Grain and straw In small
quantities passed out ot the Mississippi
nil day. The Signal ofilco report gives
the condition of the rivers elsew here.

Tho cnbln of the Bell will bu in place
In about a week.
Memphis people grew wild over h
report that tho river had risen ten feet at
Paducah one day this week, hut cooled
otl when it was found to tie n mistake of
little over U feet.
The water works ot the St. Charles
Hotel got lot yesterday nnd Capt. Wli
cox employed the F.ekert's diver to llsh
for it. He drew quite a respectable au
dience while nt work.
Tho .Hm Fsk ami Idlewlld brought
out rather slim trips yesterday, hut the
Idlewlld had an excellent trip of kviple,
Including' Cnptain .lack Grammar and
several other olilrlnls of the Eviwlll
