We irivy place this morning to a com

to the majority of our citizens in case tho

believe it would lie an unwise action of the
council, should that Iwdy agree to light'the
lamps while our city is financially embar
rassed. For many good and aufDcient reas
ons, which we have not space to give this
morning, we are opposed to lighting the
street lamp, either with gas or oil, for the

ed night before last for being drunk and

TI1.0 8quirc' heart being touched by tho
follow' story ho was given a Btiiy and doubt

The action of tho offlcors in arresting
tho woniKii wl.n fnnn.l In Hill Snntf.
sutoqu contrary to tho ordinances, has the
approval of Tiik Bcmjctix mid the major-
ity of our, citizeus. But these a
rests seem to' full short of accomplishing
the object sought, since, under the peculiar
circumstances, it is diflkult to get .the po
lice court to give proper weight ,to existing
evidence. If Bill Scott permits these wo
men, to infest his pinch, and behave
in a disorderly and indecent
manner, he lays himself liable to the ordin
ances condemning a disorderly house as
do those who frequent it and we can see no
reason why he should not be compelled

carousmgs, or to stop His business entirely,
Although this is a wide world one oc

We are in . receipt of several letters
fioiu the aCTicultunil department urcins
that a fair association le atonce orgttnized
in Alexander county and preparations be
made for holding a tair next fali. We
' o r
have spoken to seven, fannets on this sub-
ject, among them Mr. Thos. J. Cniig of
UiKlges I'ark, and find them all enthusias-
tic ou the subject. But if a fair is to be
held no time should be lost in making tho
necessary arrangements. The location is
yet to lc secured, the grounds purchased
ana tenced and the necessary buildings to
be erected, all of which will take consider-
able time. e see no good reason why the
matter has been delayed as long as it has
since we have in Alexander county all that
is calculated to make a fair a success. - The
products of this county are not surpassed
m Southern Illinois. It is rich und prolific
in all iu resources and a fair would doubt
less Iks one of the greatest incentives to the
developement of its natural resources that
could bo utilised just now. If our farmers
want a fair they should talk over the mat
ter with their neighbors; organize an as
sociation and go to work at once.

Idlewild yesterday morning by which four

at eston and her crew were employed in
putting off a large boiler that lay across her
torecastle, when n keg of powder exploded
ni her bow tearing it into solinten nt f.r

boiler which was thrown by the
explosion against . the steps prevent
ed further mischief than was
wrought. She was immediately forced
out on the bank ami thus prevented frpin
sinking. Eight of her crew, who were at
work about the boiler, were seriously injur
ed, aud when tho Bron pauecd four of
thetn were expected to die. No one clso
was hurt except one passenger ' who was
standing on the steps, and he very slight

Since the Hon. Jacob Wlieeler's name
has been sent to the senate, tho contest for
the Marshalship for the Southern District
ot Illinois is regarded, by out most relia
ble exchanges, as settled. It is generally
believed that there is no doubt of his con
firmation. Ho is personally popular, was
a faithful, hard-working member of the
last two General assemblies, was a capital
soldier, and is untouched by scandals of
any sort. It is doubtful if a result more
generally " sat it-factory could have Ibeen
reached iu lact, it is understood that next
to their own, the two other leading candi
dates favored his nomination. Col. E. R.
Roc, who will shortly retire at tho expira
tion of his second term (eight years) of
faithful aervice, will go out of ofiico with
his personal integrity untarnished, ' and
with a clean official record. The strong
support which he lias received for re-ap-pointmeut
from all parts of tho distrct, has
been iu the highest degree complimentary
to him as a ram and an officer, and but for
President Hayes' opposition to a "third
term," would probably have been success
ful in retaining him la the position which
he lias tilled so faithfully.

REPLY TO "CITIZEN."
Please permit me through the columns of
your paper to remind ''Citizen" who calls
so loudly for a remedy for the morals of
the city, in your Sunday's issue, that he al
ready has the remedy laid down in the city
laws and ordinances, and uow all he want's
iscityollicials who wilUdo that the laws
are rigidly enforced mayor, aldermen, po
lice force, justices and u"ll who have the
good name and welfare of our city at heart;
paramount to every other consideration.
Moa who have no "axes to grind" iu keep
ing on tho right side of anybody against
right and morality. If this cannot be done
by our present officials I second the motion
of "Thomas" who in Saturday'! Argus pro
poses to dismiss tho whole force as a set too
pusillaulmous to be in power, and give tho
management of the city affairs- up to wo
men and sec if there would not be a clean
ing out of those vilo dens and depraved
characters. Yes, air; you need not smile
incredulously, but you'd see the
streets lighted also, and the morals of the
place so much improved that you would
not recognize it as tho anme place in a
month or to. ' Just so tongas men like
"Citizen" are In power, who can go all over
the city and see nothing to deplore In the
existing state of morals, Just bo loug will
tho morals remain unimproved. .There are
none so blind as those that will not or don't
want to see; Mr. Citizen1. Oh, you'd liko to
have us all shut our eyes, ears and mouth,
too, and make believe that there noth
ing "rotten in Deuinark" and that every
man ot you are doing your
wholo duty for tho good name aud welfare
of our city, but you cau't hookwink us, we
are after you and don't intend to let up un
til you have all turned over a new leaf and
this place assumes a decidedly different as
poet of affairs. Call us "Chronic : grutn.
biers" if you like, you will find that we aro
worso then that if the laws aro not enforced
and those depraved wretches, both white
and colored are either made to keep within
bounds or driven from the, city. You
thought you'd scare us out by accusing us
ot indulging in "looso talk" becnuao we
were crying shame on tho present state of
affairs, but you reckoned without your host.
Wo know what is right and wo aro going to
nave ic or Know ino reason wny. A year
ago last fall we prided ourselves with tho
thought that we were going to have great
improvements in everything streets u!l
lighted and in better repair then they had
ever been outcast women nnd men sup
pressed and morality predominate gener
ally, but alas, how our hopes have fallen,
matters have grown worse and worso and
now we dou't intend to keep silent any
longer until every man in power shall do
his duty. This is what wc want ami uotli
ing more. Now, Mr. Citizen, have I spoken
loudly enough? If uot I'll speak loud.-r
next time. Paumnk.

What Faamc Lksuk'b Im.. Nkwspapkii
bats: A good piuuo at a fair price is one
of the wants of tho times. An instrument
that is durable, that is substantially made,
and has all those qualities of tone which
make a first-class piano, can be hnd from
the MENDELssons Pi ami Co., 21 East Fif
teenth street, New York, from $140 tof-100.
For over thirty-seven years their factory
has been producing pianos, and adopting
every new invention which has proved itself
to be valuable. They can be compared by
an expert with the instruments of the high
est nnma und fancy price, nnd tho result is
surprisingly satisfactory. The Piano is
warranted for five years, and no purchaser
has ever made a complaint. From personal
