The constant rain of yesterday after

citizens who, for several weeks, have been
inconvenienced by a scarcity of water.
River water was running into tho city
at quite a rapid rate througli the sewer at
the corner ot Fifteenth street and Washing

The young men, who propose to or

only give pleasure to slelghriders, but
to tho small boy as well. Tho latter will
have a most flattering opportunity of again
annoying tho former with dirty snow balls,
their slung and general deviltry. Hut tho
pleasure seekers should bear all this with
christian resignation--remembering that if
tho boys were at home, what a time thoro

Night before last OlDcois Hogun and

and completest in the west, possessing all
tho latest appliances for tho comfort
and general convenience of tho traveling

It is estimated that during the present
winter not less than ten car loads of coal
were stolen from tho cars in tho Illinois
Central yards and tho officials,
with a view of stopping the
thievery, havo concluded to vigorously
prosecute all offenders. Tho last person
caught in the act of stealing coal is a negio
boy, named William Brown. He was cap
tured by Monroe Wooten aud yesterday
brought before Squire Osborn, for a hearing,
who bound him over in tho sum of fifty
dollars. The father of the boy giving bond
for his appearance, he was released.
The English langaage is twisted into
all imaginable shapes nowadays. For in
stance ono of our southern exchanges says:
"Atlanta now ruDS through sleepers to both
Louisville and Cincinnati." Taken literally,
this would be the whole city of Atlanta
tearing through the air and pass
ing through everv sleeping thing
bctweeu its present locality and the
two cities meutioned. And that would bo
a spectacle indeed. The sentence, how
ever, means only that cars for sleepers
now run from Atlanta to Louisville and
Cincinnati. "Through" is an adjective
nowhere but in railroad news.
Here is the way the republican organs
choke off the colored voters ot their party
when they demand office. Says the stalwart
St. Louis Globe-Democrat: "The colored
men who are urging the claims of Mr.
Langston, Mr. Fred Douglas or anybody
else to a cabinet office, solely on account of
his color, are violatiug the spirit, if not the
letter, of the civil rights bill, and may be
prosecuted the first thing they know. That
law forbids all distinctions on account of
race or color, in certain specified matters,
office-holding among the rest, and to urge
that a man should Lave an office because
he is black is to discriminate against the
Since Mr. Oberly appears to be faking
nearly everything out of The liniLTiN
ollicu to Blooinington with him, the ques
tion has been raised as to what will be left
to continue the publication of The lii i.i.i-;-Ti.N
We appreciate the difficulty when we
undertake to reach the understanding of
the editor of the News, through a skull
which rivals in thickness that of his
ancestors, who disputed with the cave bear
in prehistoric times for the possession ol
his cave-home, but we will make the at
tempt even if it is timo wasted: First:
then, Mr. Oberly took his house
hold furniture to Blooinington.
Second. He bought the mate
rial and press of the office ot A. J.
Alden & Son, which had been stored in a
room in The Bulletin building. Third:
He took the Cairo City bindery which had
never been a part of Tine Bulletin, but
was under the control of A. W. l'yatt, who
proposes to replace it with a new one. Tho
editor of the News might bo ublo to sny
what the effect of these removals would
have upon the future publication of The
Bulletin. Further, The Bulletin office
contained two steam power, cylindar press
es either one of w hich was capable of print
ing the Cairo Weekly Nows whole edi
tion, both sides ut once, in less timo than
fifteen minutes. One of these presses had
been used, like the old hand press of the
News, only to run off the edition of The
Bulletin, while the other was held iu re
serve for largo poster-printing ami book
work. Knowing that one of these presses
was a superfluity nnd dead stock, at pres
ent, in a Cairo office, when Mr. Oberly
offered us two thousand dollars for the
Cottrell, w unhesitatingly blessed it und
let it go. The above comprises the sum
total of all that Mr. Oberly took from Tun
Bulletin offieo to Uloomingtou. The
oditor of tho News can explain what would
bo the probable effect of this upon tin of.
nco liko '1MB Bulletin. Among
tno items leu iy iur. Oberly in The
Bulletin office, aro six full sized imposing
stones that aro alono worth as much us tho
whole outfit ot tho Weekly News; over ono
hundred fonts of first-class job type; fifty
pounds of brass rulu; flvo hundred douihIh
of small pien, for brief and pamphlet work;
uvu hundred pounds ol nonpareil ortH Biid
figures; twelvo hundred pounds of bour
geois and display type; five hundred pounds
of leads; thirty full fonts ot wood typo,
for poster work ; all the latest styles of
Japanese and wood borders; one uew com
pleto stereotyping outfit; one steam Hoo cyl
indar power press; one steam quarto Gor
don press; ono eighth Gordon press; a ten
horse power engine and boiler, and cases,
cabinets, galleys, racks, stands, etc., etc,,
fhnumerable. Out of all this wo believo
tho editor of tho News might find enough
to continue tho publication ot almost
any paper, even tho Weekly News. Wo
believo tho day is not far distant
when wo will bo compelled by increaso of
business to replace tho Cottrell, sold to Mr
Oberly with another press, but it will bo
some timo before Cairo will need anything
better than the fourteen-hundred-dollar
Campell newspaper press that wo proposo
buj ing. Wo havo already added, at a cost
of $200, a new cutter, which will be ready
to-day for uso lor tho first time,
and would, if wo could seo
anything to bo gained in tho
transaction, buy tho wholo outfit of the
Cairo News and stow it away iu the cellar,
Although our winter has been long
and severe und ico plentiful in tho Missis
sippi river, but few ot our business men
havo laid in a supply for the coming
summer months, as was tho case heretofore
Mr. Chas. Galigher has laid in a supply, but
not as much us ho intended, and others
intended to follow his example but, owing
to the rise of the Ohio river, which caused
tho back water in the Mississippi to cover
tho ice, they were "foiled" In their designs.
Nevertheless, there is no reason to believe
that there will be a scarcity of this very
essential commodity wheu the warruweather
overtakes u?, for tho ice crop north
has been great, and we have in our midst
a number of enterprising men, who have
had experience in handling ico and who
will see to it that this community is amply
supplied and tho healthy competition that
will be sure to exist will insure the public
against exhorbitaut rates. In view of all
these facts Cairoites need 'feel no anxiety
in regard to this matter.
It is a little astonishing to think of a
single log of wood being converted into
paper. It is still more astonishing to be
informed that a whole tract of 20,000 acres
of forests is to be reduced to book, news
and writing paper. Tho Pittsburg, Pa.,
Chronicle says that "a paper manufacturing
firm has purchased 20,000 acres of Somer
set county mountain timber and a lurge
gang of workmen has been sent to the tract
to begin improvements. There will be
erected a shanty fifty feet in length,
twelvo feet in width, and eight
feet high. The shanty onco finished, the
work will be begun on a large stone build
ing, thirty dwelling houses, and an enor
mous digester for tho cooking and steam
ing of wood in the manufacture of pulp,
and a huge building to lo used in the
manufacture of paper sacks and wrapping
paper. All these preparations ara prelim
inary to reducing 20,000 acres of forest to
news, book, and fine writing paper."
