Of this assertion w e have no doubt.
Davis Is a vindictive man. The l!e-
publicans of this city, having tried him
and found hiui wantiug nearly every
thing he could think ot, "went back on
him" long ago. They won't fellowship
with him. They denounce him mildly
aud shrug their shoulders when he Is
mentioned. He is consequently angry
at all the Cairo Radicals, and whines
about them ccutiuually. His little mean
ness he made very manifest yesterday
by soying in his paper : "A circular ad
dressed to the 'Chairman of the Repub
lican Committee, Cairo, 111.,' in car ot
the Sun, can be obtained by calling at the
office, No. 'J Ohio Levee." Davis ought
to be smoothed down.

the above complaint was made to
I'nited States Commissioner Candce on
last Thursday. The trouble which drew
forth this action on the part of Mr. Scott
w ill be remembered by many in this city,
but at the time it took place but little
was said or even thought ot it.
A reporter yesterday procured a copy
ot the above complaint, and believing
that a statement troui the parties con
cerned would prove interesting to the
readers of the Bi i litis, wended his
way to Scott's saloon ami dance house
in the lower part of town, to Interview
Mr. Scott had .tot yet made his ap
pearance, and upon being informed by
the bar-keeper that the proprietor w ould
in all probability be found at his resi
dence, the reporter sought him there.
Mr. Scott was at home and evidently
Interpreted at a glance the motives that
prompted the reporter to call before be
ing told. He was very cordial, aud after
seating his guest comfortably on a hand
some cushioned chair, w ith a tine uiarble
top table to serve as a writing desk,
related the following tale of his trials and
tribulations with that fierce brakeman.
Mr. Scott said :
The difficulty occurred at Mound City
ou Decoration day. It was the last train
that came to Cairo, a.id consisted of two
coaches and two Hat cars. When the
train came to the depot there were
twenty-five or thirty waiting, and as soon
as it came to a halt, everybody, white
and black, made a rush to get aboard. I
found it Impossible to get into the first
car as the crowd had tilled It full, uud I
went to the last coach. When 1 went to
go in the braktuiau said: "Scott, wait
until these jieopk' get out," (meaning the
people wbo had come up from Cairo).
We stood to one side and did as the
brakeman reijufted us. My w He then
passed Into the r aud I attempted to
Reporter llov far ahead ol you was

Mr. Scott Slit was just going in the
door when 1 tc)ed from Ihe platform
to the steps ol the ear.
Reporter Whs there any person lie
tweefi you. aud jour wife
Scott No one She thought 1 was
following hrr, aid did not look back to
see, but took a stat. When t-he looked
around whe didul ' ". and looked
out the wind w, and saw the difficulty
between the brale'iiau and 1. When 1
started iu the brakeman who told me to
wait, was still stiiidiiig on thn platform
assisting ladles II' the car. .lust as I
reached the d.wr 1 heard a voice say,
"Vou can't go U that ear." 1 stepped
into tbe car and heaid the same voice say,
"You can't g hi that ear." Tasked:
whjean'tl gin tbia ear?" By this
time there were eight or ten la
dle and gentlemen lu the ear.
1 turn Alt some one put their hand
rn my coat collar and pull me backwards
towards the door. When 1 was in the
door, the brakeman stepped to one side
of the platform ol the car, aud threw me
against the brnkc, head lirst, and if I
hadn't caught hold of the break I would
have fell and broke my neck. The brake
man then got In front of me, and began
to kick rue in the luce, head and breast-
,1 still held to the iron railing around the
tlnttoriii ami tried lo get ofl , but he kept
me, and continued to kick me, un-
tifi fell ofl the car upon the platform.
When I got in a position to defend my
sell, Mr. Rose well Miller and another
gentleman caught me and held me fa.' t.
Reporter Did Mr. Miller see the
Mr. Scott Yes, sir. Mr. Miller was
there keeping the iieople back Irom the
train so that no one would le hurt. He
saw the w hole thing, and never lnterferred
until 1 was kicked out on the plattorm,
when he grabbed tne and held me, and
told me to come to thn office the next
morning and he would settle the matter
satisfactorily. During the time the
trouble was going on, my wife camo out
of the car and was standing on the plat
form. L told her to go Into the car
(meaning the coach she had just came
out of). Mr. Miller and the conductor
both relnsed to let her go into the car. 1
asked them why we could not go into
that car. Mr. Miller said, "you can't go
Into that car; go Into the other and conn
to my office iu the morning and I will
make everything satisfactory." I said,
"I hold first-class tickets and want you
to explain w hy I can't go into that car?
The conductor said, "the reason why, Is,
that this car is lor white folks, and not
for niggers, and you can't go in," At
that I said, "that settles it," and I walked
Reporter by did you not go in t Lo
ear that Miller and the conductor told
you to go Into ?
Mr-Scott My reasons were that it
was full of tM'Oplc, while the other had
but few persons in it, aud for the reason
that my tickets called for first-class pas
sage, and I thought 1 had a right to seats
in any part of the train.
Reporter It the car w hich t he conduc
tor designated was strictly Jor the con
veyance of white persons, why was your
wife allowed to go into it?
Mr. Scott My wife is very light in
complexion, and it was not discoverd
that she had colored blood in her veins
until she come out. As soon as he saw
this he relused to let her go back.
Reporter The man who kicked you
was not the man who told you to
stand aside untd the people got till ol the

Reporter Where was the brakeman
w ho did the kicking w hen you tlrst went

Mr. Seott He was standing ou the
platform of the car swearing he would
kick my (J d d d head ofl, or any other
nigger s head off, who attempted to go
Into the car. Mr. Miller ami the con
ductor heard him.
Reporter Then It was uot the brake

Mr. Scott No, sir; be only told me to
Reporter- Do you know the names ol
Mr. Scott Charles Scott it the name
ot the man who told me to wait. The
name of the brakemen who did the kick
iag is Thomas Swindcr. There was a
big crowd of colored people there who
are friends ot mine, who would have an
nihilated Swindcr if I had sanctioned it.
Rut I was w ith my w ii'e, and wanteil no
trouble, and lett after I was fold why I
could not go into the car.
Reporter Did you call at Mr. Miller' j
office as he requested you to?
Mr. Scott No, sir; I did not. The
conductor also told me on the way down
to call on Mr. Miller and he w ould set
tle the matter with me ; but 1 thought
Mr. Miller knew whether I had been
mistreated or not, and that it was his
place to come aud sco me.
Reporter What injuries did you sus
tain at the hands of winder?
Mr. Seott He kicked one of my front
teeth out and fractured two of my ribs,
aud inflicted injuries Inwardly that 1 will
probably never recover from. 1 have
been under the treatment ot a physician
ever tinee the difficulty took place.
Reporter 1 understood, Mr. Scott.that
you have brought suit under the civil
rights bill against the Cairo uud Vin
cennes railroad company, tor damages.
Mr. Seott I have not brought suit
against the road as an action of debt, but
criminally, as 1 have no desire to make
any money out of the aflair.
Reporter Can you produce testimony
that will corroborate the statement yon
have just madeV
Mr. Scott I thiuk I can. I have four
or five witnesses w bite uud colored
who will swear to the truth ol what I
have told you.
At the conclusion of the ubove dia
logue the reporter thanked Mr. Scott
for his side of (lie story, bid hiui good
morning, and started on the trail of Mr.
The reporter betook himself to the
general offices of the Cairo and Vinceii
ues road, where he was welcomed lu a
very cordial manner by Mr. Miller, who
good-naturedly declined, however, to
make any statement in regard to the
trouble with Scott. The representative
of the 1U ii.kiin, seeing that the railroad
man was determined to bold last to
what he kuew, tried to scare him into
giving him some light ou the
subject beside that which lie had already
learned, by imparting to him the startling
information that Rill Scott had broke
loose in it manner ili.il would prove un
wholesome lor the Cairo aud Vincennes
road If his statement was allowed to go
into print without tbe other side of the
story, but he only smiled a smile that was
truly "child-like and bland, " and wouldn't
scare worth aceut.
Tbe reporter Uieu left him, with a heart
lull of sadness and concluded to give tbe
reports ol the difficulty as current in this
city at the timp It took place, which, If
our recollection serves us aright, acre
about as follows :
The train which Scott attempted to
board was the last excursion train fum
ing to Cairo from Mound City on Deco
ration day. It consi-ted of two H.tt
and two passenger coaches. One of the
coachr. was reserved for Indies, both
white and black, but no gentleman, un
less acting ns the escort of a lady, was
ermitted to ride in it. Scott and his
wile came to the steps of the ear, and
Mrs. Scott parsed in and tool. In r seat,
without an demniistraiion mi
the part of the managers of
the train to keep her out.
Alter Mrs, Slt h: l found a ;.cit, Scott
attempted to go into the car, and being
without the necessary u companion' nt, a
woman, was stopped by the brakenmn.
Scott is said to have been persistent, and
a difficulty ensued in which Scott
puhed or (truck the brakeman, who in
turn kicked him off the car.
Whether this is 'irue blue" or not,
we are unable to say, but that is the
version of the fracas as told upon the ar
rival ot the train in this city there h no
