Carpenters were yesterday at work put

Section 28, article 4, of the constitution
of Illinois says "no law shall be passed to
extend the term of any public officer or
appointment." How, then, can the present
county officers claim to hold over for
another year under the amendment adopted
as to sheriffs, etc., at the last election. This
is a nut for lawyers to crack.
The Casino society's ball at Washing
ton hall to-night, should not be forgotten,
as the opportunity for genuine fun nnd
plenty of it will not be lacking there. The
society has resolved to give a strictly first
class ball, and have made their arrange
ments accordingly. Good music by Boi
court's band, and rcfreshnicntsVill be pro
vided. On Friday night last a white man, a
resident of this city, whose name wc did

in Paducah in 1878; Capt. Whito Fowler,
who died in the Confederate army; W. P.

J. II. Fowler, who alone is left of tho fam
ily. A coal famine is threatened In different
parts of tho country. Chicago has been

than two or three bushels at a timo to their

tho scarcity. Iowa Is suffering nnd In
some places tho people arc driven to such
desperation that they threaten to stop

an unhappy outlook for the beginning of a
cold, hard winter.
The little baby of Mr. and Mrs. K. S.
Dewey died on Monday morning last. It
was born on Thanksgiving dav, and was
sick for several days before death ensued.

The manufacturers of St. Jacob's oil
are spending considerable money in ad
vertising. For this purpose they have a
small boat of their own, named St. Jacob's
Oil, which has been lying at our wharf
since yesterday. The city has been flooded
with almanacs and hand-bills, telling the
readers that the oil is good for everything,
and a number of men are at work with
paint and brushes, making very fancy and
aristic signs upon fences and houses. A
sign on Barclay Bro's prescription drug
store is particularly attractive.
-Last Friday night the shrill sound of
police whistle was heard on the corner of
Eighth street and Commercial avenue.
Deputy Sheriff Has Martin answered the
call, end upon arriving there, found two
river men lighting. I non approaching
them they both turned upon him, but he
knocked one of them down and attempted
to arrest the other. He was resisted, how
ever, and a scuffle ensued in the course of
which they moved out into the middle
of the street aud down nearly to Seventh
street. By this time about fifteen or twenty
river and railroad ruffians had gathered
around the two men, all of them protesting
against the action of the officer in attempt
ing to arrest their com
rade, and accompanying their
protests with some rather dangerous
demonstrations. When they perceived that
Mr. Martin was not to be intimidated by
verbal threats they gathered rocks, clubs
drew knives, and threatened to kill him if
he did not desist. But he blew his whistle
tor assistance and Mr. Jno. Keohler, the
Eighth street saloon keeper, obeyed the
summons, but the ruffi ins repeated their
threats to him and it was not until City
Jailer John Cain came to his assistance that
Mr. Martin was permitted to tako his man
to jail. Our informaut gave officer Mirtiu
credit for considerable courage.
Mr. Howard, of Danvillo, wa3 in tho
city yesterday. Ho is an earnest advocate
of tho scheme lor tho conversion ot tho
Illinois and Michigan canal and the Illinois
river from LaSalle to its junction with the
Mississippi river, into a ship canal connect-
Lako Michigan nnd tho Father of
waters, which is now being extensively dis
cussed throughout tho state. This is of
great importance not only to Chicago, but
to the whole peoplo of tho southwest, west
and northwest as well. Indeed, tho in
habitants of the cntiro western Mississippi
volley can well afford to pool their
issues, nnd establish a closely knit
community ot interests for tho suc
cess of the timo honored project. Now is a
peculiarly fclicitlous period for tho discus
sion of this question, nnd it is one which
will bear discussion and thrive on it by
reason of tho intrinsic merit of tho project
ed work. Tho country has not been so froo
from internal dissensions for thirty years,
or better prepared for tho calm considera
tion of questions affecting tho material in
terests of the people, and of all the internal
improvements which liavo been suggested
nono are of more importanco than tho con
struction of this ship canal. It is estimat
ed that between $15,000,000 and fl8,000,
