Two men were at work on Secoucl
street, near tho Halliday House, yesterday
arranging the gas pipes connecting the
hotel with the mains. They had dug a
deep pit and had disconnected tho pipes
allowing tho ims to escape. They had
worked for some hours in tho pit, constant
ly breathing the escaping gas and were
warned several times to come out at regu
lar intervals and tako fresh air, but they
refused, saying that they wcro experienced
hands at the gas fitting and could stand it
But subsequent events proved that they
were too self-confident. About threo
o'clock in the afternoon, while several per
sous were standing around the pit watching
the progress of the work, both ot the men
suddenly straightened themselves up,
shiver ran through their bodies, aud they
broke down. dead, as everybody there
thought. But they were both speedily
pulled out and. with a plentiful use of
spirits, brought back to consciousness. It
was fortunate for tho men that help was so
near at hand, for had they been permitted
to lay in the pit but a few minutes longer
they would have certainly been beyond ul
The present republican general assern
bly will go down to generations yet unborn
as the grand aggregation of human sloths.
No legislative body ever moved so slowly;
and had the majority of tho members taken
an oath, before entering upon a discharge
of their duties, that the progress of every
measure should be impeded by all the
tactics known to the most skilled parlia
mentarianthat nothing should be dis
posed of that admitted of further postpone
ment had motives of this kind governed
from the start, matters could not have
moved more sluggishly than they have
moved. If the majority had worked
as hard to forward business as it has to kill
time its record would be infinitely more
creditable than it now Is. Wearied from
non-action during the week, tho majority
go home on Saturday, and returning on
Monday, too late in the day to convene for
business, it is Tuesday morning before a
quorum is secured. Thus it occurrs that
duiing three days out of seven there is no
pretense of business, ot course tho respon
sibility fur this state of affairs rests upon
the shoulders of the republican majority.
While there uro democrats who are willing
to avail themselves of the luxurious idle
ness consequent upon these adjournments,
they nre utterly powerless either to hasten
business or delay it. Tho republicans have
complete ami undeniable control and can
d") precisely as they please. It pleases
them to do nothing to idle away their
time, and make the people pay them five
dollars per day while they are doing it.
They have been in session now about 112
days. During that timo they have passed
exactly twenty-one bills. Several of these
are in the form of deficiency bills in order
to meet the expense of the legislature be
cause of its proslracted session ; the balance
are of purely local import; not one of the
whole number is of any importance to the
state at large. There has been no bill
passed making the necessary provision
for tho support of the state
government; no bill making appropriations
for the necessaiy annual expenses of the
state charitiable, p'inal or reformatory insti
tutions. During the one hundred and
twelve days the per diem of the two hun
dred and four members, at five dollars for
each.amounts to $1,020 per day ,or $114,210
for tho 112 days. This is only tho salary
of members and docs not include tho sal
aries of clerks of the houses, clerks of
committees, pages, janitors and
other employes, besides thousands
of dollars spent on so called investigations.
According to the State Journal, a repub
lican paper, the cost to the people of the
state of this legislature is not less than
$1,800 per day, or about two hundred
thousand dollars for the 112 days that it
has now been in session. It remains to be
seen what the people are going to do about
it. It they tamely submit if they fail to
rebuke the guilty parties, they will show
themselves to be undeserving of better
service. They will show that tho lazitst
body of lawmakers that can begotten to
gether, is as good as they deserve.

A TEREIFFIC HAIL STORM.
IT bWKKI'8 OVER t'AIKO, D01NO MUCH IUM
AGE IN A SMALL WAV TO PKOl'EKTY AND
COMES NEAR PKNDINO A HCMAN SOl'L TO
THE IILL'E I1EYOND.
The Bulletin is not in the habit of
telling its readers what tho weather
has been, because the weather
is usually a very stale subject;
but yesterday's storm demands notice be
cause of its character, and tho damage it
did in various parts of the city and suburbs.
The day opened with bright sunshine,
which gave piomiso of very flue weather.
But tho clouds were visible,
mostly toward tho west. These were being
swept slowly over tho city by a gentle
breeze, which acted coolingly upon the
heated brow of the hasty pedestrian. But
shortly after noon the sky assumed a leaden
color all along tho western anil northern
horizon and tho wind became stronger.
Tho lightnings began to 11 hhIi a little and
the deep sound of tho thunder was heard
in the distance. About three o'clock the
snn disappeared and the clouds now sunk
lower and changed to a darki r hue and came
rapidly over the city, while tho wind blew
with considerable force, the lightning
flashed more frequently and the earth shook
with 'tl.o concussion made by it.
Rain began to fall lightly a little after
three, but it did not fall lightly long. The
sky had already assumed that muddy
color, which always betokens more than nn
ordinary charge of water or something else
and the wind had become so strong that
it would have been dangerous even to the
most celebrated storm proof umbrella. The
rain gradually increased in volume and the
wind in force until the former came down
in torrents and tho latter blew a perfect
hurricane. Hut it did not stop
here. In the midst of all the
splashing of water and whistling of wind
and creaking of signs ami rattling of
shingles and windows and doors and slam
ing of gates, there came a clatter upon the
oareinent and windows and roofs like
beans falling upon them, and everybody
who had, until now, paid no attention to the
commotion in the elements witl-out stop
ped to listen and fo look. The rattle con
tinueil and increased in power, too rain
increased in volume, the wind increased in
velocity; it seemed as though each wcie
engaged in a combat witn the other,
or it seemed as though some heathen god
had turned loose upon the city, not only the
musketry and heavy artillery of the armies
of the earth, but also the fiends of the bot
tomless pit, with the elements of wind and
water. For about fifteen minutes the
sight without was interesting, but
awe-inspiring and the noise was
leafening. Sign boards scampered along
the streets ami sidewalks, water stood sev
eral inches deep all over the streets and
tore deep ruts wherever it found an openin
to lower ground and large balls of solid ic e
came down in a thick shower making it
extremely unpleasant, not to say unsafe, lor
any living thing to be out. This storm
lasted for about twenty minutes and then,
after a little more rain, ceased entirely.
Not less than ten minutes after it began
the sidewalks and streets were perfectly
white with nuggets of ice, which soon
isappeared from the latter, however, by
the action of the water, which swept them
olf into the sewers or low places; but along
the sidewalks, close by the houses, they
lay from two to four inches deep and per
sons found considerable interest in picking
out the largest, many of which measured
fully one iuch in diameter.
Had it not been for the bracing air, the
smooth, beaten and wet streets,
the water running swiftly through
gutters and other more serious
ns, a person who had just been
awakened from a sound slumber, would not
have known that there had been any ele
mentary disturbance, so quiet was all above
and around. But a walk around town.even
without these signs, would soon have satis
fied him that a destroyer had paid Cairo a
visit, for he "puld have seen the foot prints
at every step. A number of signs were
blown down, window panes were broken,
fences were laid low, the limbs of trees
were broken and thoso which withstood
the force of the wind, were stripped al
most completely, by tho hail, of their
green foliage, which was carried by tho
wind through every street, covering the
sidewalks as with a green tapestry that Was
rather pleasant to the eye.
Tho damage to property was widespread
but not very serious in any one case. In a
hurried walk around the city we learned
of the following instances where it had
done injury: B. F. Blake's front door glass
was bruken by a ball of ice; Taber Bro's
Bpectacle sign was partly blown away; the
paper store ot Mr. 15. F. Parker was Hood
ed und a quantity of plastcriug from tho
coiling fell off and some wall paper was
damaged by the water; Dr. J. S. Petrie's
sign was blown out into tho middle of
Eighth street; about throo hundred run
ning feet ot Hurry Walker's bill-poster
fences, in different parts of the city, were
totally wrecked; tho stage plank suspend
ed in front ot tho steamer W. P. Halliday,
which was lying at tho upper wharf-boat,
was blown against tho boat's jackstafT,
which was broken oir nearly at tho baso;
Mr. II. C. liOllin's transparency, in front ot
his news-stand on Ohio luvee, was riddled,

blown down; Mr. D. Hehles' boot

lugs; the high fence in the rear of Mr. J
T. Reuuie's vacant lot on Commercial
avenue was blown down ; a large sign of
"Boarding and Lodging," which stood
across the sidewalk on Ohio levee, near
Fourteenth street, was also blown away
some of the wiudows in the second story of
Mr. P. Clancy's building were broken t

house, on Fourth street, was blown
down, as was also the large
sign of "Tho City National Bank

These are tho instances, in which th
loss sustained is comparatively
slight. Tho most serious casualty
connected with the storm was that which
nearly, if it has not already, resulted in
the death of an old colored woman named
Sarah BlacK. She was standing close to
the edge to the high sidewalk on Ohio
levee between Twelfth and Fourteenth
and where the ruiling had been torn away

But the greatest loss was undoubtedly
sustained by the gardeners and farmers
wherever the storm reached. Nothing that
was visible above the ground was exempt
from a severe pelting by the hail and
early vegetables that were exposed to it
must have been cut down. In this respect
the work of the storm is irreparable and
