We have received a copy of the
Port Huron (Michigan) Times, contain
ing an account of the opening ot the
new custom house at that place. The
article pays a high compliment to our
former fellow-citizen, Mr. Geo. II. Sease,
who has had charge ot.tho work of con
structing the building. The Times says
"The expressions ol admiration and sat
isfaction on the part of those visiting the
building on Saturday were universal.
The work throughout has been honestly,
thoroughly.and economically tloue; noth
ing has been slighted or negle:ted, and
the building will 6tand for centuries as a
monument ol good workmanship.
For this all praise is due to Mr. Geo. U.
Sease, the efficient superintendent, who
has given to every detail ot the work his
personal attention, and whose ability and
efflciency are not surpassed, we believe,
by any builder in the employ of the gov
ernment. We trust that he will not be
sent elsewhere until the completion of
the work outside the building."
Three-card monte men are plenty,
and almost daily we hear ot them play
ing their game on unsuspecting stran
gers. Yesterday morning, between nine
and ten o'clock, two ot the gang who are
to be seeu on the streets almost any hour
In the day, lell In with a stranger on
Ohio levee, near the Planter's House, and
alter showing hi in the sights, took him
down to see the new warehouse of the
narrow gauge railroad. After looking at
the house one of the party pulled out his
cards and in a rery short time the stran
ger was interested in the
game, and in the etid came
out about twenty dollars. Ol course the
thieves had Important business elsewhere
Justaoout that time, and left the
stranger promising to return in a lew
minutes. But they did not come back,
and after waiting for more than an hour
the swindled man told his story to some
men near by, and in turn was told that
he had been robbed. Of course the
'operators'' made their escape and up to
last accounts had not been cantured.
One ot the boldest robberies
perpetrated In Cairo In years
occurred on Commercial avenue
between Fourth and Sixth streets
between nine and ten o'clock yesterday
morniug. Mrs. Jas. Johnson was the
victim, and the robbery ocenred lu'thls
way: Mrs. Johnson had been to see a
lady in the lower portion of town,
aud on hor way home.
when between Fourth and Sixth
street, a negro man approached her
stealthily from behind, and without her
knowledge ; succeeded la picking her
pocket, and making bis escape without
Mrs. Johnson's even suspecting that any
one had approacnea near to her. Mich
ael Glenn, a drayman, who happened to
be near at hand saw me whole transac
tion, aud told Mrs. Johnson that she had
been robbed. She felt for her pocket
book, but It was gone. To say that she
wn surprised aud alarmed when she
learned ot what had taken place, does
not bait express her fueling. A descrlp
tion of toe thiet was giveu to the officers,
and they are now on bis track, and bis
arrest Is only a matter of a day or two.
Alderman Lancaster has, on several
occasions since the election, asserted that
there was great fraud practiced la the
election for alderman lo bis ward, lie
bas gone so far as to state openly that
a number ol votes cast tor bis opponent
Were paid for at the rate
of five dollars a vote.
Mr. Lancaster Iim stated that several
citizens ot the Fifth ward have offered to
contribute money to defray the expenses
of a prosecution of the parties implicated
In the purchase ot votes. One patriotic
citizen, Mr. Lancaster says, offered to
contribute fifty dollars. These are se
rious charges, aud .If true, it is the duty
of Mr Lancaster as a member ol the city
council, and as a sworn officer
ol tho city, to bave them Inves
tigated. Mr. Lancaster should accept
the oiler of the patriotic gentlemen w ho
have asserted a willingness to open their
purses that tho parties practicing the
frauds may be prosecuted ; and if he re
fuses to do so now. It may become nec
essary for the the grand Jury, which
meets in the course ot the next three
or four weeks, to summons
Mr. Lancaster beloro them and
compel him to tell what
he knows ol the frauds in the Filth ward.
Frauds of the character alleged by Mr.
Lancaster should not be allowed to go
unpunished; and It Mr. Lancaster Is the
good citizen we believe him to be, he
will not hesitate to do bis utmost to pros
ecute the parties implicated In them.
Lizzie Young, alias Lizzie Martain,
is a "nymph of the pave" who bangs out
in one of the dens on Commercial avenue
below sixth street. Lizzie has been in
her time, as; the phrase has it, a "line
looking" woman. She Is "fat and fair"
though not lorty. She is perhaps not
over twenty-one or two years of age,
though in sin and vice she is
fifty. For some time past her friends
have noticed that she has been low spir
ited, aud at times downcast and sorrow
ful. She has talked much of wanting to
die, and has often been heard to inquire
"what would kill one the quickest, and
cause the least pain." Several days
ago she showed one of ber iriends a
small package, and said it contained
morphine, aud added, "one of these days
you will tlud tie ready for the coroner."
All this was considered idle talk, how
ever, and her friends paid no attention to
It. But events have proven that Lizzie
was in earnest, and was only waiting a
lavorable opportunity to shuffle outof
this world. Friday night she was
found in her bed in an insensible con
dition, and when medical aid was called
U was found that she was laboring under
an over-dose of poison morphine. For
a time it was thought she could not re
cover, aud she was given up as a hope
less case ; but as the hours wore on it
became apparent that she had taken an
overdose, and with proper atten
tion she might possibly "pull through."
She was still alive last night and in a
fair way lo recover. What caused her
to attempt suicide is not positively
known, but it is supposed some on a of
her male Iriends has "thrown off" on
her, and that is more than any high
toned demirep can stand without an at
tempt at suicide.
