X Bio Time at Villa Ridok. The
good people ot Villa Ridge and vicinity
had a grand good time of It on New Year's
day. During the day a reception was
held in the large ant! commodious ball
over Mecsrs. Pallock A Lewis' store,
where refreshments were served, and it Is
estimated that ovor four hundred persons
visited the bull daring the day. All this
took place under the auspices ot the Villa
Ridge Temperance Reform club.
In the evening a grand tem
perance meeting was held, when,
alter some most excellent vocal and Ins
strumental music by Miss Emma B.
Brown, Mr. Robert Lowery of this city
was introduced to the audience and made
a most able and eloquent speech, in wklcb
he handled the demon intemperance In
bis usually lorclble manner. Mr. Lowery
spoke for half an hour. At the conclu
sion of Mr. Lowery's address W. U.
Morris was presented and made a very
appropriate speech of half an hour's dus
ration. The temperance rueatlng over, Ic
was announced that a dance would take
place In I he hall. The benches
were . removed, a- string
band brought In and dancing commenced.
About twenty-five couples remained lor
the dance, and a cleverer, or more socl
able lot of people It has not been our lot
to meet in a long time. In short Villa
Ridge, population considered, can turn
out more pretty girls and good looking
ladles married and unmarried than
any other town In the State. Tbe dance
was kept up until half-past one o'clock,
and was one of tbe most enjoyable
Oia Firk Department. In times
past the Cairo fire department was re
garded as one of tbe best volunteer or
ganisations in the west. 01 late, how
ever, the department seems to have de
generated, to be less efficient at fires, and
as a result within the last two or three
years much valuable property has been de
stroyed. This result is not to be attribut
ed to a lack ot energy or willingness ou the
part of the men comDosing the departs
mcnt to work when occasion requires that
they should work, but is due entirely to
dillatory lotion on the part of the city
govercineut to furnish the several com
panies with tbe necessary aparatus with
which to successfully fight fire. There
is scarcely a company In the city that Is
properly supplied with hose, suctions,
etc., and it seems almost Impossible to
induce tbe city to supply tbem. This is
not night is not as it should be. It is
said that tor the want ot a new suction
the Rough and Ready lire company was
unable to render efficient service at the
tire on Thursday morning. This fact,
It fact It Is, should induce the city author
ities to see to it that the different corns
panies arc ac once supplied with all nec
New Police Officers. BilJy Sch ut

pointed police officers to do duty in plnce
ot tho suspended officers, Sargent and
McCarthy. An investigation into the
charges against these officers will be had
on next Monday evening at tbe council
chamber before tbe committee on police,
jail and fire department, and upon the
result ot this Investigation depends their
fate. If the charges are proven they
will most likely be dismissed, but should
It turn out that they have been wrong
fully accused, and there Is a strong prob
ability that such Is tbe case, they will be
returned to duty. Messrs. Wright,

the n arrow uauqi K. it. Forsome
I R. R.-Fosmi
reason the management of the Cairo and
St. Louis railroad have elected to make
Hodges' Park tho terminus of that road,
and as we are Informed, trains are now
running regularly between that station
and East Sc. Louis. This action on the
part ol the new management ot the road
la severely commented upon by our
business men and citizens whose Interests
demand that Cairo shall be the terminus
of the road. The argument that the road
cannot run Its track Into this city is, to
use a homely expression, "too thin."
There is a space ot ground four buns
dred feet wide between the Mississippi
river and New Ivee street,
and the company hava . - the
privilege ot putting down their
track anywhere on this strip of ground,
or occupy it all If they desire to do so.
But they do not seem anxious to avail
themselves ol tbe privileges thus offered
them;! Why "this Is thus" , we do not
know, unless it is that the railroad auth
orities expect to gain the right of way
into the city over the new lovee, and be
lieve that they. can "bull-dote" tho
men owning the property on' either side
ot New Levee street to grant them this
right. If we are correct in our conjee
tnres we will bow lay to Mr. Smlthers,
the receiver ot the road, that he Is labors
Ing under a mistaken Idea., if the Cairo
and St. Louis railroad track If ever laid
down oa the Atwlsrea k will be after
wij WeaM.thi tew affofd to keep It
off New Levee St has been exhausted,
Mr. Canda, while at tin head of tho
road undertake to fight bis way Into tbe
city over this street. In that fight
Mr. Cumin went under; and II Mr.
Smlthers kuows what is best for the
Cairo and St. Louis railroad, and if be
really desires to seo the road prosper, he
will not follow In the footsteps of his Il
lustrious predecessor; but will without
delay build an embankment on the strip
of ground between tbe new luyee and the
river and make up his mind to keep it In
repair and to protect it from the encroach
went of the river. Get Into tbe city over
the new levee is out ot the question, and
the sooner Mr. Smlthers comes to this
conclusion and governs himself accord
ingly the better it will be for the road.
DCATH OF PXTIH HOWIE. NCWS Of
tho death of Peter Howie, who for the
last year or more has been an Inmate ot
tbe Southern insane asylum at Ann i, was
received In this city lost evening. Mr.
Howie was at one time a prosperous bus
iness man in this city, and was known
and respected by our citizens generally ;
but, like thousands of other men, the
hard times were too much tor him, and
he was compelled to succumb. Shortly
after he was bereft ot his reason, and was
finally removed to the Southern insane
asylum tor treatment. His case, however,
was hopeless, and he remained In the asy
lum till death came to his relief. The
remains will be brought from Anna to

train to-day, where they will be Interred

to a combination ol cause, was not what
mleht have been ex nec ted. ard what it
should have been, when we consider that
the company is so excellent a One, and
Mr. Thompson so popular an actor. The
play, notwithstanding the small audi .
ence, was well rendered and gave eyi
euce of more than ordinary ability on the
part ot the company. The play this
