train was again started to come to the
station. They bad proceeded but a few-
yards when a rumbling sound was beard
which caused the engineer to bring the

THE LEVEE QUESTION.
TV lint i I" e Ioi.e?-Vlio In to (to II;
Wlien Will II lie iioiict
What? Well, Mis manifestly: A new
levee muel be constructed to allord to us
at least temporary protection.
I'ntil within the last past three or four
days we were of the opinion, and we
were easy iu the belief, that the old levee
would be preserved by the Trustees of
the Cairo City Property or by the Cairo
and St. I.ouls railroad company. The
protection of the levee embankment
would have been not a difllcult task, nnd
the dirt wall that keeps from our doors
the floods of the river might have been
maintained by the outlay of a compara
tively small stun ol money. Hut the
Trustees, relying upon their
contract witlt the Cairo and
St. I.ouls railroad company, saw the
embankment slowly caving Into the river
and waited ; and the railroad company,
Instigated thereto by the devil, menu
eitieus ot Cairo, and, possibly, linpecu-
nloslty, did nothing. Tho city did
nothing, also; because, maybe, It was
likewise impecunious ; because, surely, In
addition to maybe, it believed the '1 ru-
tees and the railroad company would no
permit tho railroad embankment thu
levee to roll lazily down into the waters
of the Mississippi.
So, thu upshot of the reliance of the
Trustees iu the railroad company, and
the Inaction of that company, and thu
apathy ol the city, Is u broken levee that
must bo mended.
Who? Well, tho city, or nobody
That U tho long and thu short of It. We
may say, the Trustees ought to do thi
work: but what good will saying thi
do? "Col. Tayloi ought to," will not
keep tho waters of tho river from llow-
Intr through tho broken levee when thu
Hoods come. "The i'ruitees aro bound
lo," will not repair thu broken embank
incut. "The Trustees ngrccd to," will
not avert the danger at our door. Maybe
Col. Taylor ought to; maybo tho Trus
tees are bound to ; maybo thu Trustees
agreed to. Admitted. Hut thu fact Is,
novel tholess, Col, Taylor won't tho
Trustees djny that they are bound to
tho Trustees assert that thuy never
agreed to. Let us compel them?
Agreed. Hut have we time? Had we not
better build it levee llrst, and settle with
tho Trustees afterward ? Law li a long
lane, and he who gets Into It In tho Fall
time does not often get out of it before
tho floods of the Spring time come. Since,
therefore, wo must, let u, iu soniu way,
shut out the Hoods ami then go Into tho
courts and lock horns with thu Trustees,
who "won't," and assert they aro under
no obligations to protect us from thu
Hooding waters ot tho rivers flowing by
our gates, at onco our blessing ami our
