The.S'ioi says "The bet thing the lit-

pay for our new leveo, und then come
down on that, If the Council will let
them." Wo don't want the new
levee to go to the little road.
It Is so unreliable. It won't live
up to Its promises. The best thing the
elty can do, is to induce the Cairo nnd
Vlneennes Railroad Company to take the
new levee, If it will take its truck up oft'
Commercial nvenuu. Tim trustees will
then oust the little road from the old
levee, and give the right of way ovor it
to the O. nnd V. road with tho (lump

A woman living In the rear of the Gib

child picked up by Constable John Glad

says the child wandered away troin the

sick and unable to leave ' her bed, could
not go out to hunt for It. She says that
during Sunday she had a number of per
sons out locking for the little fellow, but
could hear no tidings of him. From th
apiicarnnce of things about this woman's
house, she is very poor, and it would bo

Bill Davis, a colored man, shot ami
killed Tom Kcltey, alo colored, In St.
Louis, some two or three months ago.
Davis was arrested and held to bail in
the stiDi of S00 lor his appearance at
court to stand trial for the murder of Kel-
ley. Rube Armstrong, a colored detec
tive, and proprietor of a well-regulated
Hugger-Juice shop, "went" Davis' boud.
After being released from Jail, Davis
loitered about St. Louis lor some time ;
but us the time set for his trial drew
near, concluded lie would get out of the
way, and Jumped bis ball ami came to
Cairo. He resnalaed here about two
weeks, and then went to Teunessea.
Shortly after Davis left Cairo SherIB tr
vlu received a telegram requesting him
to arrest Davis and hold him till the ar
rival of an oltlccr from St. Louis, who
would take him back to that city. But
Davis had gone, and the sheriff so in
formed the St. Louis authorities.
Armstrong then went to Tennessee
and succeeded In capturing Davis. Ou
the way back to St. Louis, when the
boat got to Union City, Davis jumped
ashore and made his escape, and agalu
turned up In Cairo. Armstrong follow ed
him, arriving In the city on Monday
Armstrong sought the nislstauce of
Sheriff frvin to recapture Davis, who It
Riftttftra. hsuri been traced W the old den
on Filth street, known as the ''FJa(
Top."
Between 10 and 11 o'clock on Monday
night sheriil Irvln and (he negro detec
tlve, Armstrong, went to the FlatTop lor
the purpose ot arresting Davis ; hut the
murderer having by some means, been
warned of tho coming of tlio officers,
succeeded in getting out of the house
Justin time, to prevent tho avenues of
escape being closed. As It was he was
compelled to leave In luch a hurry that
when he appeared on the street he had
on nothing but shirt and drawers. The
officers approached just as Davis passed
out of the door and commanded him to
halt. He refused, and started lo ran,
when three shots were fired at him, the
balls coning uncomfortably near his ears.
Davis next took refuge In a den ou
Commercial avenue, opposite the Vlcks-
burg House, where he met a friend whom
he sent to the Flat Top after his clothes;
but Instead ot going after Davis' clothes,
his friend went to Deputy Sheriff Shee
han and Informed that officer of Davis'
whereabouts. Deputy Sheehan gathered
together several members of the police
force, and proceeding to the house, ar
rested Davis. He will be taken back to
St. Louis to stand trial for the murder of
Tom KcIIey.
