Cairo urn a Nblpplnr Point Reablp
menta oft'ottoa by the Illinois t'en

road, A few days ago w. mentioned the fact
that Col. Tom. Allen, president, and
Col. Soper, general lVelght agent of the
St. Louis, Iron Mountain and Southern
railway, had been in the city, but at the
time the notice w as published we were
not able to learn the object ot their visit.
In the St. Louis Timet of the 22d, is
published an Interview .between a re
porter of that paper and Col. Allen which
explains the object of the visit of Colon
els A Hen and Soper to this city.
800 miles op cotton.
Said Mr. Allen : There are now along
our road S00 miles ot cotton piled up in
bales ready for shipment, but we have to
decline to receiveit, because we have not
facilities for handling It here in St. Louis.
We are cramped up down there to a tew
feet along each side ot the track and it re
quires acres of ground to properly handle
cotton. The same can be said in regard
to cattle. We havo labored energetically
to induce the shipment of cattlo from
Texas to St. Louis and now, at the very
time when we have southwestern con
nections and every facility as woll as
every inducement to offer the shippers,
CIIIlM'I.tn IT THIS END
Of the road, the point above all others
that should lend us every assistance and
encouragement., I owned land on this
side of the river just below the river Des
Peres and in order to get an outlet I was
compelled to buy a tract just opposite, in
the State of Illinois, al an expense of be
tween :W,000 and $10,000. Down there
I built an inclined plane without being
compelled to ask anybody's permission,
but the river is blocked up there with
icu and we can't get across.
IL What facility for handling cattle
did you desire at this end of your road ?
CATTI.K TRADE CONNECTIONS.
Mr. A. We wanted perinisblon to go
up the levee to the L nion btock-yards,
where we could discharge the cattle
without trouble or expense at the point
where they are marketed. That would
not only increase our buoiuess but would
also add to the value ot the stoak-yards
as a market. When wo get the cattle to
this point we turn them over and are
rid of them, but you can readily see that
It we had facilities to reach the stock
yards and deliver cattle there without
trouble to the shipper or danger of loss,
this would prove a very great inducement
for people to ship this way.
ft. The importance of the cotton
trade It would seem, should secure you
all the facilities needed in that direction.
VIA CAIRO HEREAFTER.
Mr. A. I have despaired of that, and
have made arrangements to get cotton
out via Carlo. Colonel Soper and my
self visited Cairo yesterday and made
arrangements with the Illinois Central
and Cairo and Vincennes railroads and
the city authorities to get all the facilities
we require. Those railroads very readily
granted us the use of their inclined
planes, and we get all the ground we
need. Consequeutly all' our cotton will
be taken to Cairo hereafter Instead of be
ing brought to St. Louis. We have
a line running into Cairo and can there
make direct connection with the Illinois
Central roads. The road is
LINED WITH COTTON
Below and we must get it out. Already
some are shipping via New Orleans and
Memphis. We are so cramped here that
we cannot get our cotton fr enough
from the track to protect it. Only the
otherday fllteen bales were burned, hav
ing caught from a spark from the loco
motive. In the month of November 19,;
000 bales of cotton were shipped over the
Iron Mountain road, 10.000 of which
went through Cairo. Every bale ot it
would have come to St. Louis had we
had room to handle it here.
Already considerable quantities ot cot
ton have arrived here over the southern
division ol the Iron Mountain and South
ern railway, and larger consignments are
ou Uie way. - . . ' '

Alade Men. J
sWiIliam Henry Green, ex-sUte sena
tor, ex-circuit judge, etc., was born in
Danville, Boyle county, Kentucky, De
cember 8th, ISM, and Is the son of Dr
Dull Green and Lucy Kenten. Ills father
was a thoroughly educated physician of
great skill and eminence. His grand"
lather, Wlllla Green, one of the ear
liest settlers of Kentucky, was tbe first
delegate Irom the district of Kentucky
to the Virginia legislature, , and
was registrar of the Kentncky land
otllce while it was a territory,
and was clerk ot the fir-t district court
that was organized In the territory. His
ancestors were among the first settlers of
Virginia, and were extensive land pro
prietors in the Shanandoah valley. They
came originally from the province ot
Leinster, In Ireland, about the year lf30.
His mother was a niece of Simon Ken
ton, the celebrated Indian fighter, and
was ol Scotch descent. Our subject was
educated at the Centre college, Danville,
Kentucky, and was a good classical
scholar, and well read In the sciences and
Iu ancient and modern history.
In 1347 the family moved to Illinois,
and settled in Mount Vernon, Jeflerson
county, where his father practiced his
profession till his death in 1857. At the
age of seventeen William II. launched iu
support of himself. lie taught school in
Benton, Illinois, and in St. Louis county,
Missouri, for three years, and at the same
time read law under the direction of the
Hon. ', Walter B. Scotes, formerly chief
justice ol the supieme court of Illinois;
was admitted to the bar lu 1S52, and com
menced practice In the same year at Mt.
Vernon, Illinois. The following year
he removed to Metropolis, in Massac
county, Illinois, where he remained, iu
large and lucrative practice, for ten years,
and In 1SC3 removed to Cairo, which has
since been Ms home, though be still

He was elected to the popular branch

Democrat, and voted for Stephen- A.
Douglas for United States senator ; was
re-elected in I860 to the same position,
and in 13C2 was elected to the state sen
ate for four years. In 1865 he was elec
ted judge of the third judicial circuit lor
three years. In 18C1 he was appointed
attorney for the Illinois Central railroad
company, which position he has held ever
since, except the interval of his judgeship,
and has the well-earned conhdence and
esteem of that company. In 1S.j0 he was
chairman of the judiciary committee of
the house of representatives, to which
position he was appointed by the speaker.
Hon. Wm. K. Morrison, now chairman
ol the congressional committee of ways
and means. The session that year was
very exciting, there being but few old
members In the body, and the supporters
of Douglas being mostly young and ar
dent men; but Mr. Green was equal to
the emergency, and was soon the recog
nized leader ot his party, conducting it
in that instance to victory- In ISO! the
political character of the body having
changed in the mean time he took the
lead In the opposition and was again on
the judiciary committee. In the senate
in 1SC3 aud 1S05 he was the recognized
leader ot the Democracy, and served on
both the judiciary and finance, commit
tees. In the latter session he made an
elaborate and powerful argument against
tiic ratification ot the Thirteenth
amendment, not in the defense
of slavery, but basing his opposition to
the measure upon the ground that the
constitution could not be properly so al
tcred as to destroy property rights with
out compensation, and that such a move
ment was revolutionary iu character,
and would in time become a most perni
cious precedent. In all matters affecting
the Interest or principles of his party, he
was found faithfully at his post, and al
ways bearing an honest and vigorous tes
As a ready debater in the senate he had
few superiors. As a lawyer his practice
has been principally In the circuit and
supreme courts ot Illinois, where he has
been eminently successful. As a speaker
he Is clear, forcible, deliberate, and at
times quite ornate and eloquent; hence
his 6tyle ol oratory Is better adopted to
deliberative bodies than to the legal
forms, though as an advocate his style Is
fluent, ever and always elegant. As a
judge he was able, dignified and impar
tial. He Is now the seulor member of
the successful law firm of Green & Gil
He was a member of the Democratic
national conventions ot 'SCO, 1364 aud
1SCS, and for many years past has been a
member of the Democratic state centr$l
committee. He has always taken a deep
Interest lu educational matters, and wa
appointed a member ot the state board of
education iu 1SC1, and has continued to
be a member of that body ever since, hav
ing been appointed and re-appointed
three times by Republican governors
He was married in 1S54 to Miss Ann
L. Hughes, daughter of James It,
Hughes, Esq., of Morgaulield, Kentucky,
whose father was a native ot the North of
Ireland. She died In ISCa, leaving two
childeii both boys who bear the ances
tral names, the oldest of Dull, and the
youngest of Heed. In 1SC8, he married
the sister of his deceased wife, Miss
Louise Hughes. - , ' . '
Judge Green Is not a member of auy
