In Cairo and opened out a sort of a gilt
enterprise e Ublislnuetit in .one ot the
shanties on Eighth street near' Washing,
ton avenue. The io. a,ran-ll of the
enterprise was this: A space of about
three feet deep by fen feet long on one
side ot the room was covered w itli fancy
photographs ol the ordinary size. Be
hind the photograph wa a slip ol white
paper aud on say one In twenty of thee
slip was marked either the figures one,
five or ten. The pictures were sold at
fllty cent each, the purchaser taking his
choice. Il on removing the picture
either of tlie figure above named were
expoed the party buying the picture
was entitled to the amount designated
lu money, whether one, five or ten dol
lar. Of course the pictures were worth
les, and no one would be fool enough
to pay fllty cents for one of them if there
was not a chance of getting a money
prize with it. Tbe party buying the pic
ture stood only one chance In about
twenty, and may be thirty, of getting
anything more than the picture. Sheriff
Saup believing the enterprise to be noth
ing more than gambling, a game ot
chance, took out a warrant for the arrest
of the proprietors ol the establishment,
and on Monday evening arrested them
while sitting at the stove In the office at
the Arlington House. They were held
during the night, and yesterday were
taken before Judge Bros for a hearing.
D. T. Linegar appeared for the defend
ants, and County Attorney Mulkey for
the people. The trinl occupied consider
able time, as there was a' large number
of witnesses sworn on either side; and
when the evidence was all heard, Judge
Bross held the defendants to
bail in the sum of two
hundred dollars each tor their ap
pearance at the next term of the circuit
court to answer the charge ot gambling.
The patties will be able to give bail as
toou as they can receive funds fromhome
but In the meantime they will be held by
the sheriff. Of cour'H; the form ot "sell
ing'' the pictures, and "giving away"
whatever money might be drawn, was
simply a weak attempt to evade the law.
Sheriff Saup hai the thank of all right
thinking men for his promptness in
nipping this institution lu the bnd.

people talk about us. Navigation Is
never sloped on account of low water or
frozen rivers. Transportation is good
all the year around from this point to
other points below here. We also have
the finest telegraph office i" this mate.
We have a tine park too, via eh we hope
iu a tew years will be improved and
made to look city-like. We also have
gas po.ts all over our city, but for some
reason we do not have them lighted.
I hope soon to see tlie city lighted up
and made to look; DUn a city. I
know we have as pretty a place as any
to-day, If it were only fixed up a little."

Mr. KbiTOR : noticed In your Issue
ol the 21st Inst, a local in which vou say
that I.lieing tilled up with cheap whisky,
made au assault upon the, police, and
that I was then pinuiir in jail. wa
taken by officer Cain, not as yon have
asserted, for going for the police, but
without any Authority, and eould have
resi.fed until I would have killed hitn if
1 had thought best, for the process upon
which he took me wa Illegal and void,
and there Is no justification lor his action
in ihi matter. Hoping yet to get justice
in this matter i write this to remove a
wrong understanding people mav have
