In not ready to report. He asked the
House of Lords for more time, last Tues
day nlelit, and got it.
The Injunction. The city injunction
ca' was heard lau nljrlit by Judge U.i
ker. I.Incxar it Lau'dcn and Scarl-'. at
torneys of the Cairo &,St. Louis railroad
company, appeared for the city lor the
Mayor, rather and Wheeler, Mulkey aud
Green it Gilbert for the citizen.
Tin: Scn's Si n:, A correspondent
of the Sun intimates that Alderman Saup,
by his late resolution, wished to instruct
the city attorney to do an act In direct
iolatIou of his oath ot olllce. This Is
not so ; but tho resolution was very ob
jectionable, aud tie; council wiely voted
Giunti'.!). Ily a unanimous vote of
the city council, as we learn Irom the
proceedings of that body published else
where, Mr. Coleman wa granted the
prayer of his petition, but the procced
uii do not Mato vhat Mr. Coleman
prayed for. and therctore we must con
tinue to live In Ignorance of what Cole
man wanted and got.
lNiiruioi'. Mr. Scail, tho attor
ney of the Cairo and St. Louis railroad,
is very industrious in Ids efl'ort to obtain
from Cairo greatci favors than have been
already extended to that company. He
has apparently become a fixture hi Cairo,
Probably bo has concluded to go to
church with our people as he did with
the people of "allttlu aectarlan road on
our line" until hu has "fixed thing'."
He Is a gentleman who believes and says
that 00!) of eyery 1000 of tho people along
the Cairo and St. I.ouU road arc marked
and la'clled like a stock of good, and
he may lie trying to read the "marks"
on .-ouie ot our folk1-.
No Ac iion. "In the ca5e of the Cairo
and St. Louis railroad company vs. the
city of Cairo' tills Is what Alderman
Saup would have the council say "In
the proceeding tor condemnation of right
ot way over and across our streets, you
will please, Mr. City Attorney Black, to
hu careful and take no action, and not
make any appearance on bchalt of .-aid
city. Stay away, and let the old thing
rip." Tliu council, very properly, re
fused to say this, aud Its refusal to do so,
Is an order, at least by implication, to the
city attorney to take action and put in
uu appearance for tho city when the con
demnation matter comes up in the cir
Caustic. A notu to tho editor bljfned
by "Mr. Ceuteiiulal" in her proper
name. Uu are iiuablu to determine
whether it was Intended for publication,
and therefore give Its substance without
giving the signature of the writer. She
eays: "So far as tliu Centennial S. J. S.
is concerned, I fdlly agree with your
triune correspondent, 'Wretch,' 'D. 1. S.
Gust' and Fatigue.' lie, or ulie, takes n
ceiislblo view of It, so far us the tedious
iioss of tho thing Is concerned. 'Jus
tice,' who belongs to the S..1. S. fraction,
hopes to force me Into it again, but us
S. . I. S. has not replied to my last, and
by having her letter re-published hat
proven what I averted, thero Is nothing
tor mo to do. Until courtesy and decency
prevent mo from explaining that letter,
and Indeed to Cairo renders It is unnecessary,"
At the Bah. OuroUcntlon has bten
called to the fact that "Mrs. 8. J. 3."
was at the Centennial toll mid lmj not
tald a word about It in the Qatttit, aud
that, therefore, she U "orry for what
.she said about the Centennial women.
We don't accept tnc statement that "Mrs.
S. J. S."wai at the ball, and wc know
the "therefore" Is not Kood logic. We
understand that ''Mrs. S. J. S." was not
at the ball ; but, .since "Mrs. Centennial"
lias told us Oiu was, wc are not Inclined
to bo stubborn about the matter. We
are, however, sure that even If Mie was
one ot the Leap-Year female patriots
that danced on that occasion, she Isuot
sorry tor what bc bin said so well. Hut
It she Is, and Intends to lall In with our
patiiotmcs wc shall rejoice.
Hts CojiJtr.NiOATio.v. Mayor Winter
made a written cominunlcitlon to the
city council on Tuesday night. About
what? A communication of the mayor
to the city council should find a place in
the teport of the proceedings of the meet
ing at whtch the communication was
made. What the mayor say hi refer
ence to city matter, tho people should
have an opportunity to hear or read. We
am therefore surprised to find that the
only reference that Is made to the mayor's
menage of Tuesday night last, Is that "a
coviuiunlcatlon from the mayor was pre
sented and read ; aud, on motion of Al
derman Nellis, was received and ordered
llled." Why was It not ordered to be
printed? Why was it not referred to a
committee ? Why were Its e uggestlons
upon ? What wan It about,
I'hintinu Heviuki) Ouuinancls. It
will be observed by the public, when It
eagerly peruses tho proceedings of thu
meeting of tliu City Council, held last
Tuesday night, that the Ordinance com
mittee reported that two bids were re
ceived for printing and binding the re
vised ordinances, but who the bidders or
what the bids were is not stated, except
that it Is casually remarked by the com
mittee that the Cairo IIllluti.v Com
pany proposes to do a certain thing for
S23.J. We therefore lake the occasion to
say that the C.uno Hullktin Company
was one of the two tint blders, and w
lower than tho other bidder thu
Arffui-Journnl people -some $30, and
that the CaUio Bulletin Company was
one of the bidders the second time, and
was under the other bidder, the A.J.
folks, about half u hundred again. Aud
the fact Is, wc are the best and cheapest
printers In the Mississippi valley. We
do not say tbU In a bo infill plrlt. or for
the purpose ot harrowing the feelings of
our printer friends ot this city, but as an
expression our merits as a competent and
low-prl?cd printer demands.
Ducks in Hap.u Watei:. Cairo ducks
are warm water oirus. in tneir veins
runs the blood ol the South and they pad
dle with web that never walked on con
gealed water. They are not a big thing
on ice. Yesterday morning two playful
web-foots betook themselves to the pleas
ant pool of water that lie between our
olllce and Fellb's coffin stcre. They en
joyed themselves until In the afternoon.
Then some thlng.beirau to puzzle them.
The water began to become hard. They
couldn't swim through it. They looked
amazed, and one said :
This Is .-trangc. I can't make it out.
What do vou think Is the matter with
I don't know," replied the otticr;
"all this Is a mystery to inc."
The coversatlon proceeded, when the
second said :
"Let us lly."
"We can't," said the other.
Anil they could't, for they wcro frozen
In. They flapped their wings, but neither
could move. About dark we sent two
valiant boys to relieve them. The ducks
were rescued from their Icy ImprUon
ment, and told to go home.
'Thank you, we will," said one of the
blrd. "Hut Fm amazed, and I'm sure
my Iriend here, who has paddled with me
uu many a stream and pond, will agree
with me when I fay that that is the
d deat hardest water In the Mississ
ippi valley. I would advise you boys to
not go Into it."
