Judge of Eighth street supreme court.
The following are the names of the

places arc to be filled at the coming city
election: Howley, of the First ward;

If the fuel famine should strike Cairo,
as it has cities north of us, some ot our
young men would ue sorely tried, llio
lack of luel would render it impossible for
the young folks to set up all night in the
front narlor. It would be too cold:thev
cmilnVt 8tand u ttnd what to do would
then be the question. Perhaps they might
do as the young folks did in Pennsylvania
years ago try "bundling."
A dispatch from Champaign says that
coal famine in that city aud other places on
the Illinois Central road is becoming alarm
ing, some local dealers retuse to taKO any
more orders, as they can get no coal to fill
them. In one town a car of coal was run
on a side track and a rush made, when forty
teams each carried away a little, but fifty
others went empty. There is danger of
great suffering. Yet Champaign is ono of
the places selected for the location of a
state institution. It is likely a wail will
soon bo sent up from Jacksonville for both
coal and water.
Every citizen of Cairo should . consti
tute himself a committeo of one to extend
aid and courtesy to those who come among
us tor a location or as casual visitors. Es
pecially should thoso who intend starting
in some needed brunch of business receive
attention and encouragement. Oftimes
the man who at first hesitates will cast his
lot with a town whose citizens givo him a
cordial reception, for it makes him feel that
be will be 'welcome, and with many, this
feoling is needed to remove the almost
universal rtougnauco toward starting in
a strange city or town.
Our readers will remember that much
of the ovidoneo given before the coroner's
jury in the case ot John CdAo, who was
killed on tho incline of tho Illinoss Central
railroad, showed that his death had result
ed from a criminal neglect on the part of
tho railroad company. This being so,
Coroner Fitzgerald, with a view of saving
tho county tho costs of tho pro
ceedings, presented Mr. DuPuo the bill tor
the same, stating to him at tho same time,
that under tho circumstances tho company
wus liable for tho costs. In this action he
was sustained by the rovisod statutes and
Mr. DoPuo sent tho bill to Mr. Beck tor
consideration. That gentleman, however,
returned it with the statement that under
recent decisions of the supreme court, the
company was not liable.
A man named Phil Roberts, who
drives for Mr. Pat Fitzgerald, attracted
some attention yesterday evcuinir near
ght street and Washington avenue, by
being taken with a fit and falling from the
wagou. Ho was taken to the sidewalk
and cared for by Has Martin and Captain
Williams until he recovered sufficiently
to be moved, when thr. latter accompanied
him to his home Mr. Fitzgerald's house.
The street committee met in the coun
cil chamber yesterday afternoon to consid
er the petition of sundry down-town citi
zens, praying that since Commercial avenue
and Ohio levee, below Fourth street, are
occupied by railroad tracks, a street sixty
feet wide be opened on llailroad Strip, be
tween Second and Fourth streets, which
would admit of the delivery of freight to
the business houses on the streets aforesaid.
The petition drew forth considerable dis
cussion, and the committee will report its
conclusions in regard to it at the next
meeting of the council.
r-A negro named Johnson, who was ar
rested and jailed a few days ago for fight
ing ana general uisoraeny conduct, was
yesterday found to be guilty of a graver
crime than either of those mentioned. The
coat he wore gave him away. It belonged
to Mr. John Sproat, who identified it to
gether with a fingerless glove that was
found in one of the pockets, all ot which
proved that Johnson had burglarized Mr.
Sproat's house and carried off the articles
mentioned. He was taken out of jail and
leld to bail in the sum ot one hundred dol-
ars by Judge Olmsted.
The Paducah News, received last night,
contains the following: "Last night a
telegram was received from Cairo instruct
ing the police to arrest a negro who was on
the steamer Ous Fowler for having stolen a
valise, f 20 in money, a vest, coat and three
cotton-hooks, and hold him; and the mes
sage was signed John Pike, very likely the
victim. The telegram fell into the hands
of Officers Geary and Schro?der, of the
nearest beat to the wharf, and on the ar
rival of the Fowler they went to her and,
after a hunt which promised at one time to
be unsuccessful, found the fellow
out upon a coal flat and
took him under their guardian
wings. The missing money, and more too,
was found upon the fellow's person, and
the other articles in the hands of the porter,
here they had been left by tho thief. The
rascal gave his name as Thomas Wells, and
ails from anywhere. He is being held to
await the coming of Pike, who has been
notified of Wells' arrest and recovery of the
-Tho case of Willie Leech versus
Balfrey came up before Justice Olmsted
yesterday, and was decided against the
defendent, who plead guilty and wits
fined ten dollars and costs. The charge
gainst Mr. Balfrey was inflicting excessive
chastization upon the boy. This is the
second time that Mr. Balfrey has been
fined for using his scholars in a rough
manner, and it seems that he has not
profited by the first fine. We do not know
what provocation he may have had to pun
ish the boy as he did, or of what character
tho boy is, but certainly a teacher
cannot be justified tinder any circumstances
in inflicting punishment that might result
injuriously to the victim. When a teacher
can not control his or her scholars by moral
force, when ho or she can not command
the respect of a pupil and compel obedicuco
in any other way than by resorting to brute
force, then expulsion should be resorted
to; and when a teachers allows his anger at
some misdemeanor, to dethrouo his leasoa
and lead him to ttso tho rod with undue
force, then his place should be filled by
another; for a man who is unable to goyprn
himself is unlit to control others.
