Ids said that as the excursion train
that came down the Cairo and Vincennes
railroad on Sunday List was passing
along Commercial avenue below Sixth
street, the bawds that inlest that locality
conducted themselves in a most
shameful and outlandish manner. They
appeared at the windows of their dens
and on the streets wavin" their hand
kerchiefs, and by all the devices known
to them tried to attract tho attention ol
the excursionists in the hope
of enticing the young men
among them Into their company. This
conduct was kept up by the bawJs until
mo excursionists left tbe train, and as
they passed the houses Inhabited by the
women In question more than one young
man was seen to (all Into the trap set for
them and they wero "takon
in." Citizens who saw this con
duct on tho part of tho bawds complain ;
that these women are not kept within
proper restrictions, but that they are al
lowed to carry on their nefarious vocation
openly and in the most shameful manner,

From Dr. Nowotuy of Beech Hidge,
who was In lhe city yesterday, we learn
VAitncitAus or the siiootixo
ot young Jas, Colemun by Julian Pillow
at a school bouse In Dog Tooth Bend on
last Friday night. For sometime past a
protracted meeting has been In progress at
the school house where the shooting took
place, and It has been a resort for all the
young men iu the vicinity for miles
COLEMAN AND HI.LOW
were regular attendants, and both were
known and regarded as quarrelsome
young men. This Is especially true as to
Pillow who Is known to bo a bad and des
perate lellow, capable ol doing or com
mitting almost any crime whenever tho
least provocation was offered him. Asa
sample of tho way in which Pillow
gels even with those whom he Imagin
es to have Injured him we may mention
his conduct toward his
MOTIIKR AMD niS 8TKF1 A1UKII,
one Jarues.Ice, a gentleman lor whom ho
seems t have entertained a supremo
hatred. Julian made it so hut for Ice
thut the latter sought safety Iu going
away Irom home, which he did and staid
for several months. In the meantime Mrs.
Ice rented Julian the farm. Shortly after
this transaction Ice, getting tirid of wan
dering about concluded to return home,
and home he came. When Judinn found
that Ice had come back, he straightway
proceeded to set fire to and burn up his
mother's slack of wheat; alter which he
took his shot -un and then took after ice,
who to "avoid a difficulty," took to the
road and camo to Cairo ns fast as he
could. That's the kind of boy Jullm
Pillow is. ;
between Coleman aud Pillow seems to
have been of long standing and they
have had several lights. . They met al
church oi Thursday night, when Cole
man attempted to stop the waon iu
which Pillow was riding and bantered
him out to tight, but
1BISXDS INTKlif KULn,
aud a quarrel was prevented. On Fri
day night they mot at the same place,
and were among the last to leave the
school house after the services were over.
They had no words on this night, how
ever, and the whole party was about to
leave the place when Coleman was
Invited by a gentleman to ride home with
him in bis. wagon.

sayitig that he had promised to ride with
another person, and started to go to the
