The late Captain Anthony Conrtway,
whose death was briefly noticed in the
Bt.-Li.ETix of November 29th, was born
in Canada West in the year 1837, and
was, therefore, at the time of his death
thirty-nine years of age. In his boy.
hood he came to the United States and
learned the trade ot engineer on the
Illinois Central railroad and came to
Cairo as a fireman on the first locomo
tive that ran Into this city, his brother,
Joseph Court way, ot Charleston, Mis
souri, being her engineer. After a few
years experience in railroad engineering
he concluded to give It np and turn his
attention to river engineering, and held
positions on several steamers plying be
tween St. Louis and New Orleans, Mem
phis and New Orleans, and St. Loui and
St. Paul. At the lint call for volunteer
at the breaking out of the war,
he enlisted in tho Fourteenth
Illinois, which was muttered out
at the and ol sixty day.
Afterward be enlisted in the navy and
erred three year upon several of the
clad aod latterly upon the Ham Vindi
cator. After his master out he ran for a
short time upon the river, when he en
tered the service of Messrs. Hsillday
Brothers and Cairo City Coal company
as engineer and commander of their tugs
aud coal fleet in our harbor, with whom he
remaiued uutll the time of his death, or
during a space of about eight years
The length of the time of this employ
ment shows the character of the man
Strictly uioral, sober, honest, industrious,
always cheerfully ready for duty, pos
sessed of excellent judgment,
first-class engineer, he served
his employers In a most acceptable
manner. His close attention to his bus
iness gave him very little time for social
enjoyment, but as a husband, friend, or
employe, he was a true man, aud he was
loved and respected by all who knew
him. In the fall of 1SC1 he was married
to Miss Johanna Buckley, of Decatur,
Illinois, and during the early years ot
married lile buried two children, all that
were born to them. His wife sur
vives him, and hi her bereavement has the
sympathy of a large number ot friends
The fatal illness of Captaiu Court way
began on September fith, when he was
prostrated by what was thought to be a
very slight attack ol dysentery, but
which grew worse until his physicians
recommended a trip to somo warmer
climate as the only hope ' of savlug his
lile. He was accordingly taken to New
Orleans upon the steamer Great Repub
lic and thence to Bilaxl on tho sea shore.
All the while ho grew worse, and
was auviscu oy physicians to re
turn north immediately. Although
almost too weak to be moved, his faith
ful wife attempted to carry out the direc
tions of tlm physicians, hoping against
hope to te able to save the life she prized
so much, and succeeded in getting him
to New Orleans and aboard the Charles
Morgan, ("apt, Conrtway expressed
great anxiety to again reach home, but
when tho teamer reached Yicksburg be
had failed so much that he readily yielded
to the advice of friends ami
stopped there to receive medical
treatment at the Infirmary at that place,
But the disease had run its course and on
the 25th of November poor Tony Court-
way passed peacefully away. During his
long aud painful illness everything pos
sible was done to releive his .uttering or
that promised a cure. On his southern
trip kind friends met him at every point.
Particularly klud were theoflioer of lite
Great Republic, Chat lea Morgan, and the
people at Vicksburg, all ol'vhoiu will

flicted wile. The remains were brouirht

Te the Editor ol the Cairo Tiutletia :
Dkar Sir : I um a seeker alter infor
mation, and know of no better way to
obtain it than through the medium of
the press. I would like to know where
the city jailer got his authority for re
leasing the man Henry Aiken? The
docket in Judge Bros' office shows that
Henry Aiken was, on the 14th day of
November, 187G, fined one huudred dol
lars on a charge ol vagrancy. The exe
cution in the hands of the city jailer
bears witness that Henry Aiken was
committed on the 1 1th day of November,
1S7C. for fifty-two days imprisonment In
the city jail, and yet the jailer releases
this same man Aiken on au order from
the mayor ordering the release of ono
Henry Yagtr. Aa explanation ffoin the
jailer is now In order. Seeker.

Cairo, Ills., Dec. 15, 1876.
To the Editor Of tbe Bulletin r
Dear Sir: 1 see 110 impropriety in
Alderman ilalliday's resolution calling
on the mayor for a statement ot his rea
sons for releasing the man Aiken (I use
the name Aiken purposely, for that is the
man's proper name) from the city jail.
On the contrary I think the resolution
entirely proper, and commend the alder
man for his course in the matter. If I
am correctly' Informed the practice of the
mayor in releasing parties after convic
tion has of late been carried too far.
It Is asserted, and 1 believe it can be
proven, that thl man Aiken 1 now and
ha been In th dty ever aloee his rtdease
irom the dry Jail. Indeed, it 1 said by
ome persons who ought to know, that
he never left tbe city at all. If this is
true, It simply proves that the mayor
has. thongh undoubtedly unlnteationallyi
foisted upon the commonlty a man of
notoriously bad character, and whom the
officers have persistently sought to get
It seems to me the proper course lor
the mayor to pursue in cases like this,
would be to consult the officers who
make the arrest, and the Jndge, or Iu
tice before whom the party is tried, with
the view of getting at the bottom tacts,
and after having done this if it seems to
hiui that the public interest will be best
subserved by an exercise of the executive
authority provided in such cases, no one
will have occasion to complain. Hut the
mayor is not charged with having done
this, but on the contrary w ith "going it
blind," anJ in more thau one instance
he has blundered previously.
There is another and very important
reason why the mayor should not exer
cise the "pardoning power" quite so
freely. It tends to render the police
force of the city less ellicicnt. The olll
cers leel that it is useless to make arrests
of parties who can command certain in
fluences, for they will be released any
how. I know of my owu knowledge
that this feeling is common with the offi
cers, not only ol the police force but with
all who aru clothed with authority to
make arrests for violations of the or
dinances of the city or the Etate laws.
Mr. Editor, If you believe this worthy
of a place in your columns, publish it.
My only object in writing it is to in
duce the mayor to be a little more cate
tious In the exercise ot his power iu the
way of granting pardons. Citikx.
