For the last week the market bus been
overstocked with d.esstd poultry and
game of all kinds, and dealers have found
ltdlllicult to dispose of receipts. The
change In the weather on Thursday cre
ated a perfect panic in chickens, turkeys,
and dres'ed game. Chickens could be
purchased lor almost nothing and tur
key at prices ranging from twenty-live
to seventy-live cents. It was dirllcult to
dispose of game at any price.
Whether there was more than tlie)isual
amount of business transacted yesterday
we are unable to say, but if appearances
amount to anything, then we should
judge than our merchants did a very fair
day's trading. The levee, as well as
Commercial .and Washington avenues,
and the cross streets were thronged witli
people huriylng hither and thither, all
eagerly bent on bu-lness of some kind.
May-be there was not mote than the
usual amount of business done, but ap
pearance seemed to indicate the contrary.
A report was in circulation yesUrday
and last night to the effect that
.Mr. llagnell, contractor for the construc
tion of the new Invee. had iplit work and
thrown U)i his contract. Though It was
late when the report reached the lifi.r.K
i in olllcc, a reporter at once set to work
to n-eertaln whether there was any truth
in the report. .Mayor Winter and other
eity olllclals were interviewed on the sub
ject, and all asserted that there was no
truth In the rumor, or if true, they were
not appraised of the (act. There is prob
ably no truth In the story.

Work on the now levee continues to
"draw its slow length along" very slowly,
which fact may, lu a great measure, be
attrihutbd to unfavorable weather that
has prevailed for the, last two or three
weeks. Another ie:iou that tho work
does not progress tnoro rapidly is, that
the forev employed to do the work Is not
siilliclcnt. So that between tho bad
weather. and the small force at work on

From a private letter received from
Johnson county, we learn that on last
Monday evening Slierill Carter, of that

Mulkey. on a charge of horse stealing.
Mulkey was taken before R. M. Fisher,
Kq., when at the request of the State's
Attorney, C. M. Dainron, the preliminary
hearing of the ease was postponed until
Thursday. On Thursday, Mulkey was
again taken before Squire Fisher, who,
alter hearing the evidence, held him to
ball in the sum ol $.800. Failing to give
bond, Mulkey was locked up in the
county Jail. The delendaut is well
known In Johnson county, where he has
lived for many years, aud heretofore
borne a good character. The evidence

there can be no doubt of bis guilt.
