Polick Court. Charllo Drown, the
colored lad arrested by Mr. Cain on
Monday night, was before Judge Bird
yesterday. It was clear from the evi
dence that young Drown was innocent
of any complicity in the robbing of Mr.
Cain's money drawer, and that he was
not aware of the object of his partner In
going into the store. However, on
searching Brown's pockets, a hideous
dirk knife was found in out- of them, and
on the charge of carrying concealed
weapons he was sent up for four days.
Charlie Stewart, the boy who robbed tho
money drawer, Is still at large, hut his
capture Is only n question of time, as it
is evident hu will not attempt to leave
the city. Stewart Is a hard case, and has
not been out of the reform school more
than two months. Moll Woods and El

honor on a charge of fighting. They
were fined live and coats each, which
they paid and were released.

killed near the Illinois Central railroad
round house at about 3 o'clock yesterday
morning. Koine lima during the night
engine No. Gl camu in, and tho engineer,
as is customary, when he arrived at the
water tank, turned hU engine over to tho
"dispatcher," whoso duty it Is to sec that
engines, when turned over to htm, aro
taken to the round house nnd taken care
ol. Having taken water, the dispatcher
pulled up to the turn-table, ami alter
having his engine turned, started lor the
coal bin to take on coal, It was
after leaving the turn-table that
Lynch was run over. Early In
the evening thu tiro hnd been drawn
cti; of ouo of the switch engines and left
laying ou tho track. Lynch, believing
that no engines or cars would pass
over that track during tho night, uint
have laid down to keep warm by the cin
ders left by tho switch engine. When
engine CI struck him, the man in charge
immediately stopped her and got out to
sec what was the matter. He found
Lynch wedged In between the cow-cather
and the grouud so tightly that Jack-
screws had to bu used to raise the engine
beforu he could be removed. On exam
ination it was found that he was badly
crushed und bruised about tho breast and
head, and that his right leg wns broken.
At nu early hour yesterday morning
Coroner Gossmau was notltied, and an
Inquest was held on the body, when the
above facts weru brought out, und a ver
dict In nccordanco therewith rendered.
Thk Littlk Folks' Paktv. Mr, Ei
non : It is'ut fair, and 1 protest against
It. I refer to tho "change of base" as
siitued by tho ladles composing the com
mlttoa, who havo In charge tho manage
ment of llii "little folks'" fancy dress
party, to bo given at the St. Charles
hotel on ' St, Valentino's day, Now, as 1
understand tho arrangements, the affair
was gotten up fry, and Jvr tho "little
one," and If, as stated lu your isuo of
yesterday morning, Invitation ate to be
extended to everybody wno generally at
tend on social gatherings, what will be
the con.arijucnce?, Why, as a matter of
course, thu little ones will bo compelled
to "tako a back sf(" or will be placed
In some comer outot the way of the older
folks, to amuse themselves as best they
can, while they (Ue oWer ones), will
take charge of th dance and havo "lots
of fun" at the cxpcu'c or the poor
children. Now, 'Mr. Editor, am one of
those mentioned sbove, "who generally
attend our social gatherings," and 1
know that on occasion like this will be
taken advantage cf, and as n consequence
there will be a large ntteudante and the
little ones will be lost sight ot entirely.
I think It manifestly unjust to permit
such a thing. Thli'will he the jSnt occa
sion In Cairo wtcre the llttlu folks have
been permitted lo havo nny voice In giv
ing such an entertainment, and I say let
us make It n success for them. I am In
favor of the older people attending, but
not ns partiei)mt. Let them do as t In
tend doing: purchase a ticket, tAko a
seat lu the ball-room and obscrvo what Is
gclng on ; and mi word for It, they will
be amply repaid 'i knowing that they
had done nothing tt mar the pleasure of
the llttlo ones by their Interference.
A Friend or tuk LtTTt.r. Ones,
unuw.fci.- r.i. jm"-, anoinajir
at the freight department of the Illinois
Central railroad In this city, was drowned
in the Ohio river opposite the Stone
Depot on Monday afternoon, sometime
between three and five o'clock. A large
quantity of drift wood had gathered at
the upper end of the vharf-boat, andat
about 3 o'clock Mr.Gllman took a hammer
and plkc-pole and went out to gather up
some of tho wood, which he Intended
having hauled to his home for summer
fire wood. Mr. Glim. was foenontlie
drift wood by different persons during
the afternoon. Ho was iiot missed from
the freight house until the steam In the
boiler began to die out, when he was
called to "fire up." But he made no re
sponse, and search being Instituted the
hammer and pike-pole he had taken out
with him were founo mthe upper edge
of the wharf-boat, and his coat on a log
near by. The finding of these article tola
tUo wUciio story Oilman was drowned.
Search for the body was at once insti
tuted, but to no purpose. Yesterday a
cannon was procured and fired over the
water nt tho place where It is supposed
he went down, but without result. Every
effort will bo made to recover tho body,
and to this end a reward of $100
has been oflcred, as will bo seen by no
tice In another column hi this paper. Mr.
Oilman was a man highly esteemed by
those who knew him, as was
evidenced yesterday by the ear
nest efforts of his friends to
recover his remains. Ho had been in the
imploymcnt of the Central company for
several years, and W83 trusted and es
teemed by his superiors, lie leaves a
wife and three small children, the oldest
about five years, and to them his loss is
Irreparable. Some time ago ho purchased
n house and lot on Fifteenth street, near
Commercial avenue, and only a few
hours before he was drowned, toldsome
of his friends that he intended making
the last payment on It when he received
hls'next month's pay. Mr. Gllman had
bls'llfc Insured for $2,500. Every ef
fort will be made to recover the body.
CincuiT CocnT. Circuit court convened
at 8:30 o'clock yesterday morning, when
Judge Allen took tho floor and com
menced the closing argument In the cele
brated Craln murder trial. As
was anticipated, at nn early hour the
court house was crowded with people
anxloii3 to hear the Jtulgo on this occa
sion, and there was scarcely nn unoccu
pied seat to be found In the large court
room. Judge Allen mado a great speech,
and notwithstanding the fact that he has
been unwell since tho llrst day
ot the trial, competent Judges say It was
one ot the greatest arguments ever made
before a Cairo jury. It waB full of sound
reasoning; and tho manner in which he
dealt with some of the witnesses for the
defense was by no means flattering to
them. His argument lasted lor about
live hours, concluding between two and
three o'clock p.m. The court then read
tho Instructions to tho Jury, alter which
the case was given to them to decide.
Whatever the verdict ot the Jury may be,
one thing is certain, the prisoners will
have no reason to complain that they did
not have a fair trial. While Judge Uaker
has hi every instance tried to keep within
tho strict meaning of tho law, ho has
given the prisoners the bcncllt ot every
Issue where there was the lean possible
chance of a misconstruction of tho law,
or a probability of doing them the least
Injustice. No man, or mou, ever nau a
fairer trial. . .
At one o'clock this morning the Jury
had not returned a verdict.

is supposed that Agent Bernard or the

A barge and a llatboat were lying close
