Paducah is making a prodidgeous
effort to organize a stock company tor the
purpose of building a new opera-house.
The Paducah Enterprise, in commenting
upon the proposition, concludes as follows:
"Traveling companies will also herald a
new hall with delight and feel more like
giving a good show. Cairo, by a little ef
fort, has raised funds for a new opera-
house, and what Cairo can do Paducah
certainly Bhould bo able to do also."
A man named Andersoa advertised a
grand sleight-of-hand performance and a
gift concert, at Carmi, 111., the other night,
but when the evening for tho pertorniance
came and a crowd of people had paid the
admission price and gathered at place des
ignated by the professor, that dignitary
was drunk and unable to go on with the
show. Besides beating the audience out
ot the admission fee he swindled several
merchants out of goods that he intended
to give away, but did not.
Tho most terrible incident of the storm
which Bwcpt over this neighborhood day
before yesterday was the killing of Mr.
Dwyer, general yard master of the Iron
Mountain railroad at Bird's Point. He was
standing on top of a car superintending the
Btvi tching of cars in tho yard during the
storm, when a large tree was blown down
ami struck him on the head, crushing his
skull and killing him immediately. Tho
box car upon which he stood is said to
have been cut completely in two.
Tho Btorm of day before yesterday was
purely local. It started only a short dis
tance north ot Cairo and, taking in but a
narrow space, traveled in the direction of
Shrevcport, doing damage all tho way
down, it is thought. It is pronounced by
most everybody hero to havo been tho
severest of its kind ever witnessed here at
this or any other time of the year.
While many of tho fruit trees in the city
were more or less injured, it is thought that
peach and plum trees will nevertheless give
good yield as, upon examination of
the trees of some of our citizens, but few
ot the buds were found to have been cutoff.
Tho puoplo of Cairo will be given an
opportunity to seo the largest shows in
this country, If not in the world, during
tho coming tenting season. The prospects
are that Cairo will be the centre for a grand

Yesterday the street cars at St. Louis
were again in full operation, but under tho
guard of the police of tho city and state
guards, who permitted uo ono to stand
upon any ono place along the entire line
for even a minute. Thus it was that no
crowd could gather and any designs
of interfering on the part
of the strikers was thus
dcfcati'd. for tho time beins. at least. It
is now only a question of endurance be
tween tho strikers and tho authorities. It
mav be that tho strikers havo no idea of
interfering until this strong guard is re
moved; they may take their time to it,
waiting patiently but determinedly for a
favorable opportunity when they will break
out afresh. It is probable, however, that
the blue coats can stand it longer than the
rioters because the latter depend mostly
upon their daily wages for subsistance and
will be compelled, in a little while, to seek
employment of somo kind and abandon the
- In the last issue of the Bloomingtou
Bulletin the following reference to Hon. I)
T. Li negar occurs; "Mr. Linegar, of the
Cairo senatorial district, is an inquisitive
member ot tho lower house of the general
assembly. The commissioners of the Chester
penitentiary ask for an appropriation to pay
for the maintenance of prisoners in that
prison. They say such an appropriation is
necessary because the prison is not self-sustaining.
Why is it not self-sustaining?
Because tho labor of the prisoners cannot
be let there is not a demand for their la
bor. "But," remarks Mr. Linegar, "ho'v
can that be? You arc so anxious to obtain
prisoners to work you take all United
States convicts of the southern district of
Illinois und keep them for nothing? If
you have such a demand for convict labor
your convicts ought to bo self-sustaining."
Therefore Mr. Linegar has introduced a res
olution into the house under which he will
seek, but all in vain probably, to get an an
swer to his question."
. There is no abatement in the Missis
sippi floods at St. Louis and at Hannibal
and other points above. Al
though tho river in tho
extreme north is reported to be falling
there is but little hope of a speedy relief to
the inutidated portions, as the principal
flood has not yet reached Alton. The lum
ber yards and stock yards at St. Louis arc
still under water and it is expected that
much more damage will bo done to the city

strenghening the levees that have
not yet been washed away and
other precautionary measures still
continue with unabuting vigor, let
several buildings have been swept away
and several railroad bridges ditto. At
Alton the river is higher than it was in
1870 and is the highest since the great
flood of 1858. Opposite the city hundreds
of acres of farm lands are covered with
water; a force of twenty men is kept con
stantly at work at tho glass works' levees
trying to keep the water out, but without
success as the lower story of the build
ing is flooded. Tho cellars,
under the buildings on Front street,
are also (riling with water. The Ohio river
is generally quiet all along its course
though it rose a little at Louisville yester
day. We had supposed, until we read yes
terdiiy's News, that that paper considered
the slight decrease of Mr. Thistlewood's
majority in the last election, as a mild re
buke to his administration. Our supposi
tion was based upon nn article, which ap
peared in a former issue of tho News und
in which the editor intimated as much.
We are glad to know that the editor did
not mean to intimate what ho did. Mayor
Thistlewood's reelection to the office,
he held for two years, is undoubtedly
a compliment to him and is
to be regarded us nu unequivocal endorse
ment of his administration. But an en
dorsement of this kind does not necessarily
imply that tho administration was perfect
that it is not susceptible of improve
ment. What it certainly does imply in
this case, is that tho majority of tho voters
believed Mayor Thistlewood's administra
tion to havo been better than that of his
predecessor, who opposed him. Mayor
Thistlewood himself docs not claim that
his administration was perfect in every
particular, though ho strove, no doubt, to
mako it as near bo hs possible and, certain
ly, bo long as a thing is not perfect, it is
capable ot improvement. Mayor Thistle
wood's natural good sense, coupled with
two years' of experience, will enable him to
sec in what direction improvement is possi
ble and his desire to give Cairo a good gov
ernment mny bo considered as a guarrauty
that theso improvements will bo made.
Yesterday afternoon Coroner Fitz
gerald was notified that a dead man needed
his attention at tho box factory. Ho obeyod
tho summons and, arriving on the spot
designated, found tho body of a nogro
lying upon tho grouud under a shod. He
summoned a Jury and proceeded with tho
Investigation into tho causes of death. It
was brought out in tho course of the in.
vcBtigation that the man s name was
John Romcr; that he was about
forty years old; that he had
been in the city for some time, wandering
from place to place day and night in i
sick and somewhat deranged condition
that lie was arrested some days ago and
tried for vagrancy, but given a stay on con
dition to leave town; that Mr. Wells, of the
box factory, Thomas Clark, tho levee saloon
keeper and others, had for weeks and iu
various ways, contributed to his relief; that
Dr. Wood had been duly notified ot the
man's condition, but had refused
to interfere in his behalf. AH
this was established by good
testimony and tho verdict of tho jury
formed accordingly. This verdict was, iu
substance, as follows : We the jury find,af
tor due investigation of all tho ciicum
stance, that death in this case resulted
from want ami exposure and thut I)r,
Wood has been grossly if not
criminally negligent in failing to
provide for deceased after ho had been
duly notified of his condition. Tho ver
diet is rather severe on the doctor. While
there is not the care given to sick paupers
in this county that even the commonest liu
inanity would demand, the fault lays in the
law nnd with the county board as much as
it does with Dr. Wood. There should, by
all means, be better provision made for the
care of the county poor, who are physical
ly and mentally unable to keep their bodies
and bouIs together,
Somo months ago Alderman Blako of
fered a resolution instructing the commit
tee on police, jail and fire department to
consider the advisability ot securing ground
and erecting a building for use as a jai
yard, jail, council chamber, city hall and
for offices of all the city officials. The
committee has so far failed to report to the
council upon this resolution it has entire
ly ignored it. This the committee ought
not to have done, for it shows a lack of in
terest for matters of importance. The
matter to which their attention was called
in the said resolution is not an insignificant
one because it involves questions of public
concern in tho settlement of which every
citizen i3 interested, it may ho and we
are willing to admit that some attention
must be given to the condition of the city's
treasury and that no improvements must be
promulgated that are liable to exhaust the
credit side of the cash account, but
this would not necessarily bo
tho result of the committees report.
On the contrary this is exactly one of the
questions that it is to consider iu connec
tion with the whole and it is to tell the
council what it would be advisable
to do under all the circumstances. The
improvements in the city have been exten
sive within the last few years and it will
probably take some thousands of dollars to
finish those not yet finished. This.togcther
with the regular running expenses of the
city government and what may be needed
for contingencies, will not permit of the
use of any large sum of money for the
erection of a large, handsome and substan
tial building, such as outfit to be erected
for the purposes mentioned. But
the first step in the direction of
providing such a building might be taken.
There is no renson why the ground should
not be selected in somo convenient part of
the city, be fenced in and used for various
purposes, but chiefly for a jail yard, where
the city prisoners may bo put to work upon
a rock pile, or at any other work that tho
city may have to do for them. Sheds
might be built within the enclosure, so that
the work could go on in any kind of
weather. Such a yard would pay
for itself ground and all within
a year or less, if the prisoners sent out from
our police courts to board with the city
were kept constantly at work. It would
not require any great outlay of money to
secure such a yard and if the committee
had taken the subject unler consideration
as it was asked to do by the " council and
reported upon it as it ought to have done,
it is probable that some steps would already
have been taken to provide an
enclosure anil our criminals would
perhaps no longer spend the
weary hours of their imprisonment in pain
ful(?) idleness while being fed by tho city.
That the city must in tho courso of a very
few years build a new jail everybody who
has examined tho old one wi 11 admit. for it is
beginning to vot away rapidly. The yard
attached to it is too small to admit of tho
emplojment of men in t and the building
of sheds to protect tho laborer from ex
treme heat and rain. Thus
it comes that tho prisoners there always
from two to eight or ten, in number are
employed only Bcmi occasionally in clear
ing off the street crossings after a rain and
nothing more. The old committee has
probably finished its labors forever and it
will devolve upon a new ono and a new
council 4o tako this matter under considera
tion. Tho sooner some member of tho
council takes it upon himself to act in the
matter by offering another resolution,
similar to tho ono offered by Alderman
Blake,'and forcing tho idea to a favorable
issue,- the sooner will the city begin to
reclaim some of tho money it pays out an
nually for tho punishment of criminals.

Dongola, April 28th.
On tho 20th instant, tho Odd Fellow's
anniversary at Elco was largely attended
A free dinner was given to all and several
addresses were delivered. The address, by
Rev. Cunningham, was a decided success.
The Dongola brass band furnished the
music for the occasion, and it is conceded
by all that the music was pur excellent
the jovial and generous.
II. Meyers, of Cairo, gave Dongola a
call on the 20tli and, by the way, he com
pliniented Old Trim with a half pound o
his best one liuudrud-year-old smoking

it was 100 years old, but, from its mellow
aroma, we conclude it was, at all events i
it was not one hundred years old, and was
uot made by George Washington's negroes,
it was no fault of Mr. Meyers'. Come again,
Mr. Meyers, wo are always glad to meet you

just the thing for smokers. Really they
bent the one-hundred -year-old tobacco.

litisiness is pushing on lively, and we
believe if the deadlock in the United
States senate and the Illinois legislature
were to suddenly come to an end, the
country would be yet safe.
In our municipal election, in Dongola,
this spring, the temperance ticket was d

party beat the temperance ono vote only,
