his last hours on earth with peculiar sad

thu baseness of his wife, and the story
of thu sickness of li is child may
reconcile him to the deprivation
he must suffer in this respect. He hangs, a
victim to an exceptional combination of

of these. The extraordinary feature is
presented in his case of a judge sentencing
a man to death, signing a jK-tition to com
mute tint sentence, writing a letter in sup
port of it, and giving reasons why
the sentence should be commuted;
then asking the thief executive
officer of the state to consider that he had
never signed the petition or wrote the Ut

why the man should hang. We leave our

of a man who thus tries and acts upon an

COUXTY BONDED INDEETEUXEsfc
THU I'KNWNG ELECTION IN THE COI NTV ON
THE 1'1101'OSITION TO I'OMI'IIOMISK ITS
The impression seems to prevail in the
county, outside of tho city, that tho propo
sition to compromise our bonded indebted
ness comes from the bondholders, and the
williugnessof thu bondholder to take 50
cents on tho dollar for his debt and accept
a lower rate of interest is evidence, it is
argued, that the bonds are uot considered
legal by the holders of them. The facts aro
just tho reverse of this. The proposition to
compromise this put t of our indebtedness
emanated iu the first place from this city, as
the following circular, issued over a year
To llio Holders (if Honda of the C'llvof t'ulio III:
The debt of this city bus latelv beeoine
largely increased by the issuance 'of bonds,
voted oy me people in aul ol railromls, un
der an alluring and deceptions act of State
With this increase, the city's debt has
heroine so large, und the burden so irrcut
upon the taxpayers, that the corporate au
thorities find themselves unable longer to
collect revenue sufficient, or provided funds
to meet tlie requirements tor interest.
They therefore, respectfully ask a con
ference, looking to the funding of the
bonds in a reduced principal and interest.
Correspondence should be addressed
"Finance Committee, Cairo, Illinois.'
Adopted by the city council of Cairo,
in., June o, 15 1 s.
J. B. Piiii.l.is, City Clerk.
The only sound reason why a bondholder
should be willing to accept the comprom
ise is that now ho gets nothing through
luck of our ability to pay ; whereas, if our
debt was in the shape proposed by the
compromise we could pay it, and he would
gctthe benefit of our improved condition,
without the vr xaiions and troubles of liti
gation. The proposition considered in any
of its aspect is a g.d thing for both the
bondholder and the county. The question
ot the legality of bonds issued by the city
excepting railroad bonds, was passed
upon by Judge baker on Monday la.st, and
he decided in favor of their legality.
Wherever an intelligent understanding of
the question is arrived ut, there can be no
opposition to the (.oiuptoinise.
