The law docket of the January term of
the Alexander circuit court consists of one
hundred and twenty-four cases; the chan
cery docket of sixty-one cases, and the
criminal docket of sixteen cases a total of
two hundred and one c.a,es. Prior to the
meeting of the Grand Jury there were only
eight cases entered in the criminal docket,
the other eight being upon tho findings of
the Grand Jury. It is safe fo say tliat we
have not had so small a criminal docket as
that of the present term since the year luO,
or during the past fifty years.
The individual who burglarized Judge
Green's residence, Tuesday night, has been
captured, and lodged in j til. He is a col
ored man who calls himself John Wilson,
but wc'iH a hat, the inside of which bears
this inscription: "This is my hat, and this
ir.y iiami Jones." The arrest was oi
led .-d by Chief Arter and policeman Slice
hail, about 2 o'clock yustenlay afternoon.
The fellow had on two coats and five shirts,
and carried in his pocket two extra pair of
socks. As the Grand Jury was discharged
yesterday afternoon, Mr. Wilson will have
abundance of time, before trial, to contem
plate the enormity of Ins off:nce and
the probable consequence.
Heretofore the matter of appointing
bailiffs was left t the discretion of the
Sheriff, und it was nt unfrc'iuently the
case that the list embneed from twelve to
twenty nam':. Now no bailiffs are ap
pointed by anybody. Such kii officer is
not known to the law. The court appoints
fpeul deputies to the Sheriff, each one of
whom takes and subscribes an oath not
unlike that of the Sheriff tin Judje hav
ing power to increase or lessen the force as
the business may seem to require. The
special deputies of the present term ure:
William H. Schutter, Charles Mehner,
Diehard Taylor, W. W. Wooten. Thomas Y.
Hargis,John Gladney und James M. Craig.
Dr. Mareun has fallen into an error in
supposing that bis claim, alone, was ignor
ed by the City Council; und into another
error in the assumption that the payment ot
his claim was recommended by the Finance
committee. Four or live oth.r claims were
disposed of in the same manner that is,
payment whs refused, for the time being.
The same claims can be, and most likely
will be, pressed upon the attention, of the
council ngtin at its next meeting. For
some reason that was not explained, the
Doctor's bill was not placed in the hands of
the Finance committee. It came to t.ho
council direct from the Board of Health.
Apprehending that the Doctor drew infer
ences from our published report of tho
council proceedings that lead him into the
errors in question, wo feel called upon to
make this explanation.
Tho business of the present term of our
Circuit court is devoid of the usual interest.
No important criminal cams aro docketed,
and but few others of any kind. Up to
yesterday afternoon, tho Grand Jury had
returned only B,?ven "true bills" into court;
und, from what we cun learn, tho work of
that body is drawing to a close. Tho truth
is, tho resident population of Alexander
county do but little wrong. Our law
breakers, or nineteen-twentieths of them,
arc transient persons rascals who congre
gate hero from Louisville, Evansville, Mem
phis und Pud ucith. If these cities would
keep their villains at home, our criminal
docket would not occupy tho utleiition of
the Court threo days in a year. Thus far
during tho present term, only throe crimin
al rases havo been disposed of. That of
Leroy Grunt for shooting at it negro woman,
discharged; that of Seamans, for burglariz
ing Furnbuker's store, two years In the pen
itentiary i and of Charles Stewart, for bur
glary und larceny, eighteen months imprison
ment. Charles Johnson, indicted for shoot
log and seriously wounding the negro
blacksmith at thu Horno-Shoo milln, was ar
raigned and pleud "nut guilty." His trial"
came on to be heard yesterday afternoon.

To be more exolici: the Captain was mar'

the K. v. W. F. Whittuker. We are (lis
posed to regard both of tho parties to the
alli.tnco equally fortuunte. At all events
The Bum.kti.v extends iu coidial good
wishes, coupled with tho hope that the new
life upon which they have entered may be
ono of uninterrupted happiness.
Most per.or;s who heard the ringing of
the Delta City lire bell, the other day, sup
posed that it had been cracked. No old
cast-iron sugar kettle ever gave out a more
villainous, car-dintracting sound than the
Delta bull did. Feeling unxiotis to learn
tho whys, etc., we extended inquires. The
first man we asked, didn't kno. The sec
ond told us to "go to f" Tho third was
a mild, complacent gentleman, who never
sees any wrong in anybody or anything.
He said that really he had noticed nothing
peculiar; thought it was all right. The
fourth hadn't heard the bell at all. The
fifth told us that Frank Warren would
know, and the oixlh swora, by all the gods
ut once that the bell had not been rung at
all. Finally meeting Bill Howe we asked
him what was the matter, and in his u.-u:il
amiable manner ha informed us that the
bell was coated all over with from two to
four inches of ice. "And that's what's the .
matter" with the Delta fire bell.
The summary dismissal of the Grand
Jury, with the accompanying censure fur a
waste of time, is, as- we elsewhere denomi
nate it, an unusual proceeding. The Grand
Jury give their showing in another column,
over tho signature of their officers. Be
yond what we have learned from that
statement we know nothing of the facts in
volved, and are not prepared, therefore, to
pass judgment in the eas But one thing
we note with pleasure, and it is this: Put
ting this affair out of .si;,'ht, we are glad to
notice in other directions, u determination
on the part of Judge Darker to bring the
officers of the court and trie lawyers up to
a prompt discharge of llieir duties. If he
will (to use a slangy plira.se) "put the
screws" to the lawyers, even a little, tighter
than he yet has done, tho ponpli; will nip-
port him in it. Of the justice or injustice nf
the affair ot yesterd.iy, we do not care to
express an opinion until wc are better in
formed in tho premises.
The fair and supper giwn by the lady
members of St. Patrick's Catholic Church
closed lust night. There was a very good
turn-out, and the good i'Hing that pervaded
the crowd w::s very notifiable. The .supply
of edibles remained apparently as plentiful,
and certainly as touthsi nie and tempting as
ever. Tin; cukes r.Miiuiiiinv uncut wep-
.lisposed of by "chance," and a very 1'iir
sum realized. As a whole, despite the draw
back of inclement weather, the affair whs a
decided succi's, as well financially us so
cially. It .M' . ins h::r lly f.tirtdiscr'miiia?:s
among the lady manager', all of whom
worked so faithfully for the hUCCies of tie-
occasion; but no one will take oH'ence. w
are sure, when v.e In. .-tow a word of prai
upon Mrs. Cuhill for her untiring endeavors
to render the affair sucecvfu!. She devoted
much time Hisd effort as well in soliciting
nnd gathering in the contributions of friends
of the church, as iu Moving the patrons of
the supper und festival. Mrs. C. certainly
deserves a vote of thanks.
Cheap thermometers work great cor
ruption in public morals, They not only
lie themselves; but furnish numerous occa
sions for their owners to lie. During vry
cold or hot weather it is quite a difficult
matter for the owner of a thermometer to
toll the truth. One individual, to tell u
startling story ubout the cold weather, will
a.ssorvatn that his thermometer score? a
figure eight or ten degrees lower than indi
cated by his mercury. A listening neigh
bor, not to be out-done l y so paltry a mat
ter as eight or ten degrees of cold weather,
promptly swenrs that his thermometer
scores a figure ut lenst live degrees lower.
Everybody has a pride in what is his own.
He is very apt to brag on hisdog,his chick
ens or children, cow or wife. It would bo
curious indeed, when tho weather is much
talked of, should ho fail to speak of his
ownership of a thermometer; and from
every two dozen words used in that connec
tion, a discriminating individual could dig
out two or threo well defined falsehoods,
Wu lie about ourselves, our wives, chiMren,
horses nnd dogs and why not about our
thermometers? .We all do it.
Tho members of tho M. K. of (',, of
this city, feel themselves unable to furnish
the means essential to a creditable celebra
tion of Mardi Gras day, ami lure concluded
therefore, to let the day puss unobserved,
merely recognizing the presence of the day
by n masquerade ball in tho evening. The
crew minlo application to the city for help,
but the hands of tho City Council being
tied by tho law, no help could bo obtained
from that quarter. Consequently t'wro Is
but one other Bourco to which the crew can
appeal, und upon t hut source it seems to havo
quite a strong c'aim. Wo refer to tie mer
chants nnd hotel keepers of tho city. The
celebration of Mardi Gras last year, brought
from the surrounding country, iih many
as 1,500 to 3,000 people, It Is Hoiking a
low estiinato of tho expenditures itmd() by
these peoplo while in thocit)-, to place them
at throe dollars for each individual visitor.
Many of them bought bills of ch thing, dry
goods, groceries, etc., amounting to from
ten to fifty dollars, nnd hundreds of them
patronized our hotels, restaurant", Biikon?,
rtc, leaving in the aggregate, in tho hands
of our people, a sum of money not lcs than
$.1,00(1 or $'1,000. Not lets than $l,.100 to
2i()0O wu clear profit. What was
dnnii lei-t year, in that behalf,
U'n 1,0 h''JKht ubout again this year, if
our merchants and others who made the
money last year, will contribute a mm
equal to one fourth of their cleur proliti.
There are business establishments and ho
tels in the city, the proprietors of which
would mskfl a profitable investment by
contributing fitty dollurs each. It is as
much as tho crew should be expected to do
to give the time and expend the labor in
volved in the get up of a creditable demon
stration. In doing that they would bo the
heaviest contributors in the city. But as
we have already intimated, the City Coun
cil can't give because of legal hinderances,
the crew ought not to be ubked or expected
to meet tho txpense, und as there seems to
be no disposition on the part of the mer
chants, hotel keepers nnd Jther parties in
terested to take hold ot the matter, the
probabilities are very strong that wo shall
have no public celebration of Murdi-Gras
Wc should like it very much if Judge
Darker would p rnilt us to add just one
paragraph to his "Bules of Practice." It is
this: That in all those cases where law
yers, who have had ample time and fail,
though "cussed laziness" or chronic neglect
to be ready, that then, and in that case, the
ca.vs shall either be "kicked out of the
court," or continued at the .proper cost of
the lawyer himself. The sheer neglect or
equally hateful dilatoriousness ot Cairo law
yers, has cost Alexander county hundreds,
if not thousands of dollars. On one occa
sion wo saw the whole machinery of the
court stopped for nn interval of one hour
and forty minutes while a bailiff went down
town to get a book (play a game ol srwcho
and take four drinksthe lawyer had for
gotten to bring along with him. About 11
o'clock yesterday, a case wes called, th at
torney announced hinueli re ady, a jury was
called, and thi n the attorney discovered
that he was not ready, luvlng no witucs.se,
present. The court could not w.-l! undo
what had been already done in the case,
hence, there being no alternative, tin; court
adjourned, und lost an hour's tinn. Every
occurrence of this kind occasions an actual
w.i-te of public money, und we ure glad to
notice a disposition on the part of Judge
ILirker to put a stop to it.
Among the minutes of the cxpirte
proceedings of the present t. rm of the cir
cuit court, we observed n memorandum of
an application on the part of Justus Cun
ningham, Esq., for a certificate of his moral
standing in the community. That witnesses
were called to satisfy the court of Mr.
Cunnin(;lu.iii'(i bi'h moral character, was
due i.'i part, to the red-tap-ism of tin; law,
an 1 in part to the fact that the Judge has
the honor of an acquaintance with Mr. C,
but for a comparatively short p riod. Of
course there was no lack of witnesses. All
Mr. C'unniii'-theiii had to do was to call in
th" tirst in"U Ik ni.'l--"no culling ami pick- I

C. from the right lo practice in nil the
ourts of the country? Ho has proof a

than five hundred pages, und he bus a voice

plating ull these facts, shall biich an insig

About 4 o'clock yesterday evening Judgo
llarker called the Grand Jury before him,
und uftercensuring the members for dilu-
toriousness in the discharge of their duty,
dismissed them for the term. The Grand
Jury, after dismissal, joined in a protest,
the original of which the chairman delivered
to the Judge, and a copy of which we give,
without comment, below:
TuthuHou. O. A. Uarker, Judu of th; Ali ianJer
Cujnty Circuit to in:
Sm: Iu view of thu fact thut the Grind
Jury h is boen so summarily dismissed, we,
the members of tho said jury, desire to
make the following statement:
We believe we have been us expeditious in
the disposition of the matters biought be
fore us as the interests of the p'-ople, nnd
justice to the parties uocuacd would permit.
The first two days of thu session wvro de
voted to examining into cases where the
parties were in jail, and were disposed of
with ad po-Vible iut ;.
Since Wednesday morning we hav been
ini iiri:i',' into such mutters as have been
hi .-): 1 1 1 to our attention. Then' were cases
where tie- parties pn s 'tiled were supposed
to h.tve le'en gambling, keeping gambling
huiivs. c.iscs of adultery, etc., uud some
thing near forty witnesses have been exam
ined; and we do not believe we have ton
sinned more tune than ws necessary.
Furthermore, we desire to ste.t.; that a lot
of witnesses were subpociied to uppear be
fore the jury by .-ome on unknown to the
jury, and that no member of the jury was
infoimed of w hat was ex pet ted to bo learned
from th; witne.ssess thus brought before us.
Many of those witnesses came before the
jury u:id much valuable time wjs lost in
trying to find out what they knew.
We fuitlcr state that we were ready to
adjourn ut 10 o'clock this morning, and
were only waiting for the Slate's Attorney
to prepare uii indictment, the minutes for
whii h wer; handed to him on Wednesday
tve.'iin-,'; that the officer in cht.rge of the
Gr ind Jury wus four different times sent to
the State's Attorney to request him to send
the biils to the jury that they might be re
turn :d into court.
v' believe that the censure passed Upon
th" jury by the court is uejuet.

Please allow mo a e-mail space in your in
valuable paper to make a plain statement
of a few facts. Last night at the meeting of
the City Council, while the merits and d,v
merits of my small bill against tho city for
the attendance upon yellow fever patient,
was being discussed, Alderman Wood re
marked, "That tho phy.,i( inns of Cairo bad
rendered services to the amount of thou,
amis of dollars among Vm poor of Cairo,
but it had remained fur iho epidemic of
last fall to suggest that the city should p:l
"h bills. If the bill of Mr. Mareitn ww
ullowo lbccaus.! he could n ,t mako it out
of the parties rightfully responsible, th0 ci-
would thus set a precedent that it would h
hard V) ignore, and would co: t herhundre la
if not thousands ot dollars." 1 will takn
the liberty to say here, th it for services ren
dered many persons unable t pty hw any
thing, during our lat.j pi1emic, as well a
nearly every week in the yesr, I h tv- never
had the slightest idea of bringiug a bill
against tho city ; l ot in ' cu.j of Ihn
those persons for whos.i uttendanco my bill
was presented t the Council lust ui,'!it, I
have the sanction of bis Honor Blayor
Winter, who assured mo that tho bill t.,i
my services would be allowed. I atteud!
them faithfully, night and day, furnishing
all medicines, and when I rendered my bill
I only charged for alxiut one half of the
visits made the bills" in all, only amount
ing to fifty-lour dollars. These bill", after
passing through tho hands of the Finance
committee, were cut down to Uie pitiful
sum ol twenty-five dollars, and prcs':atnd -
the Council, which decided, very geiifroiii
ly ( ! I not to allow me anything. I, for
one, would like to know if Hhis is right or
just? Did our city not boast last fall, dur
ing the prevalence of yellow fever, that it
jvas abundantly able to take care of iia
poor, and did not wish help from abroad!
Not only was it able to take care of its own
pour, but was aide to citnd a helping
hand to our suffering sister cities. Is thin
ths manner in which they projse to tak"
care of their poor by repudiating their legiti
mut i bills? If so, it is poor cncotiragemeat U
our physicians, who remained faithfully nt
the post of duty, rushing their lives, their
all, who, when often giving many
dollars to the oor, then when a small claim,
with tin; Mayor's approval is prsented, to
have it voted down by a few who wre.
during our lute scourge, resting all secure,
fir removed from the scene of danger. Ir
regard to my claim for attendance upon
Mrs Stoner, Alderman Wood endeavored,
last night, to show that her husband wi
abundantly able U pay her bills. Dillin
pay her bills at the hospital or tiefi.tylier
burial expenses! No; indeed, and u
never called upon to do so. The city paid
those bills. Then why in the name of jus
tice must my claim ulonc be ignored? In
conclusion I will makethe following proposi
tion: If any member of the City Council,
who voted against my claim, will come for
ward nnd show that they have given uio.-.t
than I have to tho poor of Cairo, during
our lato epidemic, I will give the city th
bill und say nothing more about it.
