There is an irrepressible antagonism
between railroads and gas mains when laid
in and on the same street. The jar of the
ground occasioned by moving trains along
Commercial avenue renders it quite, impos
sible for the gas company to maintain gas
tight connections in their main, there. He
pairs on this account, during the past year,
cost the gas company fully f'-JoO, ami the
loss of gas would scarcely be covered by
less than half that amount ml of which
goes to prove that !
The following armonymous note, in the
hand-writing of a lady, reached us yester
day evening. Whether it comes from the
lady to whom we referred, or from some
other lady direct from Memphis, we arc
tumble to say. Our reporter's information
was quite direct: "The Cairo lady direct
from Memphis did not report a number ot
deaths from black-vomit; nor did she get
frighteued of its being there this summer. I
mrwt tlieicfoio nay that the reporter of tint
must be a little off." Hetter off than on,
in a matter of this nature.
A ('airoite acting upon the suggestion
to "go West, young man," is now in Denver,

more letters to the Houe, for I'm flat

A stranger, npparantly a laboring man,
indulged in it large and varied assortment
of itiiths and imprecations, the other day,
because somebody had picked his pocket of
thirty or forty dollars. He left the city the
the same day, but whither he has gone no
one knows. Yesterday one of the police
men became satisfied that he had ferreted
out the man who committetl the theft, but
needs the confirmation that nobody can
give but the victim himself. The money
cannot be recovered most likely, but the
fellow who stole it can be sent to the peni

the other in a rear apartment of the dwell

On opening tho trunks they wero found to
be quite empty, every article of value hav

a nd that borrowing is out ot the question.
This thing ought to have becu known
sooner; but knowing it now, wo must use
the best known substitutes, which are
shovels, hoes, street scrapers, lime ami cop
peras. Two steamboat deck hands attracted
quite a crowd to the corner of Eighth and
Levee, yesterday morning, by aloud and
angry altercation; and each seeming to feel
that his manhood was at stake, reached out
for the other at the same instant. The tight
that ensued was ouc of tho most spirited
bouts at tlsticufis that has been seen in the
city for some time. They thumped one
another in a most vicious manner until offi
cer Shcchan arrived and took them under
arrest, when they became as docile as pet
lambs. They were fined $.j and costs, each,
by Squire Robinson, und having no money
were calaboosed for a period of six days.

there arc strength and muscle rnough in
the company to make the engine asset t its
superiority. If the Deltas could only bor
row the Hibernian's muscle, there would be
no doubt about the matter: but relying on
their own they have sent a challenge to the
Houghs for another contest, signifying a
willingness to make the tnV any time with

Thomas Ross, the colored man whom
Sheriff Hodges confined in the county jail,
Monday evening, has his story to tell,
which variesvery materially from the ante
mortem storr of Johnson, lie declares his
ability to prove that Johnson had threaten
ed to kill him the first time he met him;
that he, Io!, had his gun with him; but
had no idea of meeting Johnson;
thnt he met him face to face;
that Johnson then told him that lie intend
ed to have his lift', and believing that John
son, who was in the net of taking his hand
out of his pockctj was going to draw a
knife, he didn't Vait to sec the knife; but
up with his gun ;tid shot him. How many
stories Ross has Uld, we do not know; but
we give the latest, nml for aught we know,

During an iiterval of two or three
months or more Ihi' friends and admirers
of Hon. George W. Wall, and especially those
residing in the circuit where he is now re
si'dimr, urged his cindidacy for a seat on
the Supremo bench. The position is cer
tainly one to tempt and excite the amliition
of almost any man; but Judge Wall hav
ing an old personal and political frieud in
the field, in tin- person of Judge Mulkty
a friend whom he had urged to become a
candidate, be felt constrained to resist the
importunities of his friends, and avow his
determination not to become n candidate.
TI is he did through the columns of th
Dt.Qtioiii Tribune some time au'o,
but his card escaped our notice
until yesterday. It reads as follows:

The annual meeting of l lie stockhold
ers of the Cairo City Gas company, for the
election of otlicis to serve during the en
suing year, was held in this city, on Mon
day, tit the otlii-' of the Superintendent.
Mr. John R. Fan ham, of Wallham, Massa
chusetts, was re-e'ected President, and F.
liross. H. II. Can ice, 15. F. Illake, S. S.
Taylor, T. W. HalliiUy, R. II. Cunningham,
J. It. Farnham, Geo. 1). Williamson and H.
T. Gcronld, were re-elected ts directors.
Mr. Gcronld was then appointel to the po
sition he has so long and efficiently filled,
viz: that of Superintendent, Secretary and
Treasurer. This business disposed of, the
Hoard ef Directors entered upon a consid
eration of the proposition to cheapen the
price of gas. The proposition tw rci
duee the price to $5.00 per lOOfj
feet was tliseusseil at length
it being tlic lnanifeM'
sire of the board to furnish gas at u tnt
that would secure a largely increased num
ber of consumers. It was demonstrated,
however, as nearly as such matters can be,
that to reduce the price to firm, without
sfcii'ingan inn-canal consumption, equal to
5,000 feet per day, would subject the com
pany to a loss of n it less than f l,;i(io per
annum. Rut in order to open the way fur
the people of the cily to bring about Mich
n reduction, Director Candce, submitted n
motion to the effect, tint on and after tin. Ht
day of October, 1371I, Up price of g.,s smj
be reduced to $! per 1,000 feet, with a
further reduction of 50 iviits pet Hjim, f
paid for at the citmpany'Solliei', i n or
fore the fith day ol each atonili, .t ')vi.l,.tl
an additional consumption of . Odd f,Tt p,,r
day ciin be secured, making the daily e(,n.
sumption twenty thousand feet. This mo
tion was adopted ami Indicates
the means whereby the people of
Cairo may secure gas at tho very
reasonable rate of fj,50 per 1000 cubic
feet. If tho city ' will relight the streets,
about 8,000 of the 0,000 feet will be taken
at once, leaving only 13,000 feet to bo taken
by others. As no light is so cleanly, so
convenient, and so unquestionably safe, the
proposition submitted by the company Is
certainly worthy the serious attention of
our people. Of course, large consumers
under the new arrangement, could secure
special rates by making application to the
finance committee, directly or through the
superintendent. Reyond or besides this,
the business of tho lionvd was possessed of
no public interest, and consequently we
close our doors upon it.
-Our reporter called upon Glass, the
murderer of Newman, yesterday afternoon,
and found him in good health, and very
little disturbed in view of the penalty he
has incurred. He says he cats and sleeps
well ami that nothing bothers him night or
day. He had never been in jail before,
and protested that he was not a bad man.
He killed Newman, he said; but was sorry
for it. When he went into the room he
didn't intend to kill him. lie hit him once
aud then when he struck again he was mad
aud didn't think what would be the conse
quence. "I say I am sorry: but Newman
had thrcatend to kill me and I acted in
self delencc. I was afraid he would kill
me, I didn't intend to kill him then. I can
prove that two days before I killed him
Newman stole ti bottle of whisky from
me and drank it. He then put his hand iu
my pocket, took my money and bought
more whisky. He beat mo terribly that
day. He pounded me with bras knutks.
I didn't see the knucks but a boy told me
he used 'cm. He made bis brags, too, that
he had whipped me; and stole my wife
away from me; and I want to know
how much a man has got to stand before he
defends himself ?" In answer to questions he
said that he and his two cell mates, (both
of whom are confined on a charge of mur
der) got along swimmingly together. No
ministers hail been to see them;
but they didn't know that they
were tiny wore off on that
account. Glass is an ill-favored man, has
a bad. vicious countenance, although his
neighbors say that nobody ever considered
him either dangerous or very quarrelsome.
He desired us to say that all n ports to the
effect that he had threatened or desired to
kill Harris or any other man. are false, and
fire circulated to injure his case before the
people. He doesn't want to kill anybody
and is sorry he killed Newman. And so
ended the colloquy,
Nine members of the Council, includ
ing the Mayor, were in their scats at mil
call, last night. Reading of the minutes
of the last meeting dispensed with. Com
mittee on Streets recommended acceptance
of tlio bid of 1). t.Oulligun for the recon
struction of ccrtuin sidewalks. Recom

amendatory of ordinance No. 12 of Chap. 4
of Revised Ordinances, providing that the
jailer shall demand nnd receive (iO cents for
receiving and .",0 cents for discharging each
prisoner; that he shall he paid ".") cents per
day for dieting sime, and $l.."i0 per day
for every day he shall work
three or more prisoners, was read second
time, and put upon its passage. Alderman
Halliday moved to amend by striking out
'i cents and inserting 10. After a short
discussion between Alderman Halliday.
Wood und Thistlcwood, the latter urging
the payment of 50 cents and the two first
named favoring the amendment, the motion
to amend was carried by a vote of 7 to 1.
The ordinance as amended was then adopt
ed by the same vote. The Committee on
Police, Jail and Fire' department reported
back petition of And: Fire company rec
oiiitnendiug that the $100 asked for by the
company to put its steamer in repair, be
appropriated. A motion to concur in the
lecommenda'.ion of the committee was dis
cussed by Aldermen Wood. Rittenhouse
and Wright, the former opposing
and the latter favoring the
the appropriation. The vote upon the mo
tion to concur resulted 7 ayes I no. The
Hoard of Health reported back the claim
of Frank Holy for medicines tor yellow fe
ver victims $1.80, nnd the clnim of Gas
company for $112 for balance on tar, with
the recommendation that the claims
be paid. !'he claims were then
referred to the Committee on Claims w ith
instructions i report instunter. This last
teport hv.Ut favorable, the claims w ere al
lowed and orde red paid. I'nder the head
of miscellaneous business, the Mayor read
nn able and well-considered veto of the or
dinance entitled: "An Ordinance relating
to the Local Freight and Passenger H,'Ot
of the C. V. railroad, and for other pur
poses." After the customary routine, the
question was put: "Shall the ordin
ance stand, the Mayor's veto
to the contrary notwithstanding?"
Alderman Halliday presented very cogent
reasons why the ordinance should stand,
and upoti the vote being taken the council
refused to sustain the veto by a vote ot 8
to 0. The veto of the ordinance relating
to the graveling and planking railroad
tracks was disposed of in precisely the same
manner. On motion of Alderman
Wood tho Clerk , was ordered
ty give notice, ot a special election
n thn Fourth ward on the Olh day ol May,
to elect an alderman to fill the vacancy
occasioned by lite resignation of Alderman
Foley. The Judges und Clerks of the ipj-
tilar election were comllrmed as the Judges
and Clerks of the special election. Mr.
Lancaster presented the petition of CJ. F.
Phelps asking permission to cover CO feet
of tho railroad strip abutting
Sixth street, with a photographer's tent.
Petition referred to Committee on Streets
with authority to grant prayer of petition and
tho rate of ground rent. On motion of
Alderman Yoetim the Clerk was directed
to incorporate the Mayor's veto messago in
tho miuutesof the proceedings of the coun
cil and furnish them to tho priuter for pub
lication. Alderman Wright presented a
petition of Dan Hartntan, representing
that tho sidewalk at the cor
ner of Sixth street and Com
mercial was in a bad condition, and offering
to reconstruct the santo at his own ex
pense it the city would furnish thn lumber.
On Alderniau Wood's motion the petition
was referred to the Committee on Streets;
and then the council adjourned.
- -The manner iu which American cities
have been burdened with debts for all sort
of schemes is well illustrated by a discus,
sion that is now going on at Minneapolis,
Minn. A resent issue of the Tribune of
that city contains an elaborate, ami withal
ingenious attempt to demonstrate that a
proposed municipal loan of $2-"0,000 for
the aid of a narrow gauge railroad will not
increase the taxes ot the town in the
slightest degree, inasmuch as the increase
in the amount and value of taxable prop
erty consequent upon the magical influence
of the road when in operation will more
than counterbalance the apparent increase
of taxes.. We have a painful reminder in
this paragraph, of the specious reasoning
and exhibits in which we honestly and con
scientiously indulged, less than a dozen
yeurs ago. We believed and ciphered it
out toottr entire satisfaction, that Cairo and
Alexander county could invest $100,000
in the C. & V. and C. Jc St. L. railroads,
and then, without any perceptible increase
in the rate of taxation, provide for the pay
ment of the interest; and, under the opera
tionofthe so-called "railroad grab-law,"
create a sinking fund that would take care
of the principal. I'nder this delusion we
assumed the enormous burden, and we ob
tained the conveted railroads. Years have
elapsed since then; but where are the ma
chine shopx, foundries, repair shops, and
the many other industrial establishments
which the railroad companies would erect
and maintain? Where are the hundreds of
families that these industries were to bring
to our midst? Where is the 100 per cent
of M)jptilatioM that was to be added to town
and country within five year after the toot
ot the whistle of the first through train was
heard resounding through the bills and
v.iliu-s ol Alexander countyf Vtlicrc is

people; and the amazing increase of busi

predictions were sure to brin

In the value of our property we realized no
increase; the shops and buy mechanics arc
not here; the increase of population in
town and country, failed t come; the grab
law has been w iped from our statutes as

stand corrected and promise the editor ami '
readers of The Rcllktin, that iu all future ,
items for Tu k Bulletin wu will avoid k1
ities und religion. Religious matters, Old
Trim, from past experience, has very good
reasons toshun. He yet remembers getting
mixed up once in a Baptist "pow wow,"
and w hen he got out of it he did so by fork
ing over, in Squire Hileman's office, to the
tune of $-17. One item in last week's Bul
letin brought a curd from "Naomi," con
taming five questions on "Bob" und the

A calamitous accident happened to Dan '

the band ol the lly wheel, was carried by
the band on to the whetd, and carried three
times around it. Ho was terribly crushod,
and in an instant wasdcaJ. -lie was about

Around Dougola the weather clerk has
things badly mixed up. If he is employed
by Tice and hands out the season us Tin
predict, we hope they may be both vetoed
in a summary manner.

Reader, do you ever atop to consider the
age in which we live? How much it U
tinged with falsehood and fiction is hard t
tell. Are you a subscriber to The Cahio
Bulletin. If so, get your neiehlmrs to
subscribe. Is not, subscribe at once. In
so doing you will certainly add to the
strength of the country, by helping to dis
seminate good literature. Old Trim is a
life long Republican, since the old Whig
party went under, yet he is not so partisan
as to shun Democratic periodicals, and
when he finds one like The Caiko Bulle
tin', his motto is, to recommend it to all.
As everybody in this fast age is expected
to be brief in everything, right here we
drop the pencil, "scoot" out and feed
Jackie the pig.
To la roil and grow fat, go to the Rink.
