In his allusion to the Ilogan trial,
published elsewhere, the editor of the Mur

the defence, is omitted. States Attorney,
W. C. Mulkey was assisted by Judge Allen,
in the conduct of the prosecution.
There are a thousand and one stories

feel inclined to acquit her.
Later returns from Ohio only confirm
those given yesterday. The Democratic

hundred per cent. For a verity it looks as
if Sherman were the coming man.
The old roof to our job office leaked

harm and is provocative of the worst kind
of profanity on a rainy day from everybody
connected with the establishment.

The editor ot tho Sparta Plaindcaler is
disgusted by tho parsimony and lack of
public spirit shown by Spartan realty own
ers. Ho sarcastically inuendoizes them,
after this style: If you think anybody
wants to buy lots from you, real bad, scare
him off with enormous prices. A good bus
iness location is the very thing to keep.
Other people will make it very valuable by
building up around it. Keep your lots.
Tho enterprise of your neighbors will add
greatly to their value. "Beware ot all
strangers 1 Keep them at a distance. For,
if they see you want to sell, they will think
the town is going down. Don't let them
take any advantage of you; bo as grasping
and stingy as you can. Never invest a cent
in any public enterprises, but hoard every
cent and lend it out at usurious rates, se
cured by cut-throat mortgages. Then
fold your arms, and set back and see your
town fairly boom." Tho time was when
the "bricks" thrown by the Sparta editor
would have been appropriate missiles to tiro
from Cairo newspaper offices; but not so
now. Cairo lots can be purchased at very
low figures so low indeed that tho chanco
of obtaining a homo is placed within tho
reach of every one. Good building lots
can be bought at from $30 to 100 each.

A negro man, named Henry White,
was shot and killed at Caledonia, on Men-
day last, by Constable Tom Echols, under
the followiug circumstances: Echols had a
warrant for the arrest of White, to answer
a charge of larceny, prefercd by Mr. Baglby.
He found White in Caledonia, at the resi
dence of Mrs. Ilirani Boron, at work. He
told him he had a warrant for him and
must take him along. White replied "all
right; but by 1 want my hat," and,
avowedly to get his hat he started back
through the hall of the. building, the con
stable following him. Reaching the back
yard White broke into a run. Echols calicd
on him to stop, an I thinking to scare ffim,
tired off his revolver. White continued
to run, making directly for the woods.
Echols lired at him a second and third
time, and then seeing that the fugitive was
likely to reach the woods, and escape, re
turned to the starting point for his horse,
leaving an assistant in pursuit of the fugi
tive. When he returned he found that
White had fallen, within a hundred yards
or so of the point where he was last fired
upon. The last ball fired took effect, strik
ing him in the fmall of the back two or
three inches to the left of the spinal col
umn, and ranging upward lodged under the
left nipple. He died the next evening.
White was a muscular, powerful man, and
something of a desperado. Echols at ence
surrendered himself and was exonerated
from all blame. Tire Coroner's inquest was
he'd Wednesday; but with what result we
did not learu.
A SENSIBLE MOVE IN THE RIGHT
The Big Show that is to visit us to-morrow,
has reduced the price of admission to
23 cents, and, taking into consideration t
pecuniary condition of most people who at
turd this class of amus.-ment, we think the
proprietors have d -ae a very sensible 'thiug.
and they will reap the benefit wherever ti.;;
exhibition erects its teuts. Mr. Cordova,
the agent, in tu'.king tiie matter over with
us and giviug hi reasons for the redue 1
price of a.l:niioa. very sensibly says, "The
tents have been enlarged so that 8,000 per
sons can be comfortabiy seated therein, t : i 1
why nut entertain that number for 23 ceuts
rather tiun tJ.OoO persons at the old pric '."

WHAT OUR EXCHANGES HAVE TO SAY
Our neighboring cotemporanes continue
to discuss tho verdict in the case of The
People vs. Ilogan. We reprxluce what
they sny, without note, comment or correc
tion. The Metropolis Times says: "The jury
returned a verdict of 'not guilty.' The
plea of insanity was interposed aud sus
tained. The trial has fallen heavily on Dan
Ilogan, the brother of the defendant, who,
we are informed, had to pay the fees in this
expensive defense. The defense was a slim
one, in our opinion; and when we heard its
transparency exposed by the ringing logic
of Judge Allen, we were at a loss to see
what the jury could find to hinge a doubt
on, but not having heard the defence per
haps we were a partial judge of the case.
Tiie Murphysboro Era says : "Hon. F. E.
Albright returned from Cairo Sunday morn
ing where he had been engaged for some
days on the celebrated Ilogin murder trial.
W. J.Allen, D. T. Lincgar and othur noted
attorneys represented the people and the de
fense was conducted by Messrs. Wheeler.
Lansden, Albright aud Robarts. It was
certainly a very cowardly murder, but we
suppose there was cither mitigating cir
cumstances or else the prosecution allowed
itself to be out-sharped, as the verdict of
the jury was not guilty. It will be remem
bered by our readers that n few months
ngo Ilogan walked up behind Mr. Chas.
Arter and shot him through the back. This
was the crime for which he was tried and
cleared, only that and nothing more."
The Grayville Independent, after re
citing "the peculiar verdict," says:
"Ilogan simply walked up behind Arter i
and shot him in the bacK, killing him al
rw st in.t.ir.tiy. But then he was insane, you
know, although he has since "entirely and
permanently recovered from such insanity."
The verdict is the most remarkable one
known in modem history, ami smack very
brad of a bribed jury; though of course
being unacquainted with all the facts in
the cas?, we ccuid not nmkcsurh a charge."
Tiie Murphysboro Independent says:
"The trial of John Ilogan lor the killing
of Chus. D. Arter. in Cairo, last summer,
was completed last Saturday, and resulted
in the acquittal' of the prisoner. The ver
dict was rather a surprise to ni.my in view
of the fact ftiat the killing was one of the
most deliberate and wilful ever known.
The ground of insanity wni the one on
which the verdict was based. Knowing
nothing of the facts except the little we
have read of the evidence we hazard no
opinion either one way or tho other. It
was certainly, in all respects, nn aggravated
case, looking at it from any stand point."
The Benton Standard says :
"Thc.trial of Ilogan for killing C. D.
Arter, at Cairo, has been before the court
in that city for the past two weeks. Tho
first week was occupied m getting a jury.
Hundreds of people were summonsed,
nearly all of whom being intelligent, and
having read tho newspapers, were rejected.
There is no question nbout who committed
'this murder. Ex-sheriff C. I). Alter was
sitting in a saloon when ex-policeman, John
Ilogan, came up behind him and shot him
in tho head, causing death in a few mo
ments. This was done in broad daylight,
and was witnessed by some of tho best citi
zens of Cairo, who testify to theso facts. It
was one of tho most revolting assassinations
that ever disgraced Southern Illinois. We
care not what was tho provocation. If our
laws fail to punish such a crime, wo tire
truly in no butler condition to protect life,
than are tho half-civilized provinces of Mexico.
