Tuc Cairo and St. Louts Uailboad.
Mr. Johnson, the new superintendent of
the Cairo and St. Louis railroad was in
the city yesterday, and called at the
Bulletin oflice. Mr. Johnson was p
the city looking after the affairs of the
road at this point, and assured us that
the new management ol the road are de
sirous aud anxious that all matters at is
sue between the railroad company and
the people of Cairo shall be settled lu a
manner that will be satisfactory
to all parties concerned. lie says
the company, even 11 disposed to fight,
could not do so lor it has no money to
squander in that way. He had read tho
article which appeared iu the Bullitin
yesterday morning, and wished to correct
several statements made in It. lie says
the management ot the road does not
care to put the track on the new levee :
there is a route further to the east,"
that is, Washington avenue to Thirty.
fourth street, and then In a south-easterly
direction to the Mississippi levee, is re
garded us a more practical route. Mr.
Johnson scouts the idea ot making
Hodges' Park the terminus ot the road,
aud says trains are now running to aud 1
from that point simply because a quantity j
oi Irelght which accumulated there dur
ing the suspension needs to be remov
ed. When asked what the prospects
for trains running Into this city were,
Jlr. Johnson gave us to understand that
the management of the ro id does not in
tend to lay down their track bet w .-en the
new levee and the river, and if they are
not given the right of way over a "more
practical route" (we suppose that means
down Washington avenue) than he could
not say what would be done. Mr. John
son says the Cairo and St. Louis railroad
company "does not propose to under.
take to do what the United States gov
ernment has tailed to do," that is to stop
the encroachment of the Mississippi
river, and lor this rea?on they do
not intend to put down their
track on the strip of grouni
between the river and the levee. During
his stay in the city Mr. Johnson called on
number of our business men to talk
railroal at tLcra, but what
encouragement ho received we
do not know. To our way ot
thinking tlta differences between what
the railroad company want and what
those ol our people who are most inu r-,
cstcd are willing to grant, do not argue
an early settlement ot the matter.

as It were, to Blind Tom. There is
music In ull things, but Blind Tom Is the
temple wherein muslo dwells, lie is a

STCAxrati a Sawmili.. Tho Murpliys
boro Indeptndtnt has the following:
"Quite a ripple of excitement occurred
on the streets last Friday at the report
that somebody bad stolen a sawmill. The
frets as we gits mod them from a conrers
sat ion with tho olUcers,' are that Messrs
Stafford & Giylord owned a sawmill
which was located at Pomona, on the
narrow gauge. Sheriff Saras had an ex
edition upon the mill and had levied up
on it. Stafford & Gaylord pleaded a lit.
tie time and the sale was postponed. In
tho meantime they executed a chattel
mortgage upon the mill to one Jesse
Armstrong, and be foreclosed the mort
gage with ten days notice, and was tear
ing up the mill and loading it upon a
car. Deputy Hanks went down and for
bade the removal of it. Armstrong
claimed the property, but said ho would
seo his attorney, Mr. Albright, and do
whatever bo advised him to do, and told
Hunks to come around next morning
with the amount ot the Judgment and
costs and he would consult with him.
That night Armstrong procured a special
train and went down to Pomona and got
the mill and run it past this station to the
switch at Gartsidtj's, where it was puked
up by the through freight and taken to
East St. Louis, and traiislutrcd across the
river in less than two hours. Mr. Hanks
ascertained that the mill had been stolen
and taken to St. Lolus, and went up there
! and found it in a warehouse and had It
' brought buck. . The stealing cost the
; sheriff about $150 In expenses to get the
mill back, etc. He proposes to make il
hot lor the parties concerned now, and
good people will see him' out. The re
tiring agent, Mr. Coppock, and the new
agent, Mr. Furguson, ol this station,
were arresteu upon a charge ot conspira
cy in the attempt to abstract the mill
from the officers, and were held toappenr

1 see In your Saturday morning's ppnr
a very pleasaut article is regard to Villa
Kfdge and the reception given there on
New Year's day. 1 see also you give the
entire credit of that reception to tbe
Temperance Kefortn club. Now, Mr.
Editor, I would like to make a statement
lu regard to those who originated and
carried out that daysen&rtaiument. The
idea of giving a reception to the members
ot the T. H. C. and their friends was
first suggested by a member ol the Wo
man's Christian Tempcriinco Uuion of
Villa Ridge, and received the ' most
hearty approval ot the members of that
association. Nearly all the ladies ol the
Union, and some who were not mem
bers, agreed to give up receiving at
tbelr own homes, an I took their refresh
ments to the hall where tbev had a most
delightful day, although a Very fatigu
