to the wharf. Before the Porter was allowed
to pass Memphis, the authorities of that
ity caused her to be thoroughly examined.

reported the crew of 'the Porter to comprise
twenty-six men, all of whom were well and
in excellent opirits except onp, who wascom
plaiuing of the intense heat. Her officers
deny that any of her people have died of
the yellow fever. Tho deaths that have
occurred were caused by overheating and
drinking too much ice water. Tlio boat
was found to be in good sanitary condi
tion, with plenty of medicines but in want
of ico and some supplies. She was not per
mitted to laud at Memphis, but stood out in
the stream until a tug carried her such
supplies as she needed, and she then started
up the river for St. Louis.

Mr. Morelimd, seconded by Mr. Mayhem
moved that Judgo Green bo elected permit

Jiuigo urecn sum tliere were Severn
reasons why he would not like to accept the

opinion the Judge ought to be pressed into
Mr. Mayhem was very much disposed to
insist with Mr. Linegar that no one could

Judge Green said ho had very candidly

from Williamson, was oi tho opinion that

tee should be a unit on this question.
He would suggest that it might be wiso to
select some man outside of the committee
Mr. Connelly, proxy of Mr. Goddard,
said it was Mr. Goddard's opinion that the
chairman should be selected outside of
Cairo; but he was sure Mr. Goddard would
have no objection to Judge Green if he
should be madu chairman. The motion
was then put by Mr. Moreland and it
was carried unanimously
Mr. Field, of Pope, moved that Mr. II. F.
Potter, of Pulaski, be elected secretary.

Card. Seeing the report in The Bulle
tin of the arrest of Henry Eichotf, charged
with buying goods under false paetenses, I
would like to explain to the readers of The
Bulletin the manner in which ho ltoiight
his goods. Henry Eichoff left Cairo in Jan
uary, 1877,. for Fort Worth, Texas, and
opened a furniture store there, bought
goods, nnd carried on the business in his
own name. Last fall, business being good,
he liought a large stix-k of goods from sev
eral manufacturers with the agreement that
the goods should be shipped a few days af
ter they were bought. Among others from
whom he purchased was Agger & Sunning,
Cincinnati, paying five hundred dollars in
advance for bedsteads, with tho agreement
that they should bo shipped at once, nnd
they kept him waiting two months before
they shipped the goods. Tho other parties
promised from time to time to send the
goods, until about January, 1878, when car
load after car load arrived with freight to
be paid on each car ranging from one hundred
and forty to two hundred ami twenty dollars-
About tho same timo heavy winter rain set
in and business stopped. Payments com
ing duo tho money having been paid out
for freight, the stock on hand unsold and he
had no money to meet payments.
On the other hand if the manufac
turers hud shipped the goods as they had
agreed, the furniture could have been sold,
tho manufacturers paid, and Henry
Eichoff would have made some profit.
Now he is penniless, nnd charged wrong
fully. Respectfully, Wm. Eichoff.
