other purchaser, it was bought in by the
guardian for the heirs themselves.
Some attention should be given by the
police force to the habit the women in the
Fourth street mansion have gotten into of
"ivim? dances at recular periods. The
habit is, perhaps, not obnoxious to the
neighborhood in which it is practiced, but
it is a L'larins violation of the
ordinances. While the ordinances pro
hiliting entirely the existence of such
places cinnot be enforced, those others,
which seek to control them, can and should
be enforced to the letter".
Our tobacco market is growing in im
portance daily. The several dealers in the
city are receiving and selling on an aver
age of about twenty Jiog:3headg per
day, in spite of the tact that
the crop is somewhat short and the season
has not yet tairly opened. A strong effort
is being made by our dealers
to attract the trade to Cairo, and
they are succeeding remarkably well.
It is only a few years since Cairo has been
looked upon by planters as a place where
their leafy product could be profitably dis
posed of and now it compares favorably
with places that have labored for a score of
years to attract the trade. For this new
branch of commerce Cairo is chiefly in
debted to a few energetic men who under
stood the business and pushed it. Yester
day's prices ranged as follows: Lugs com
mon, 3)4 to 32$; lugs good, 4 to 5c; leaf
common, 5 to 5-75; leaf medium, C to 7-50;
leaf good, 7-50 to 10c; leaf selections, 10
Arrangements are in progress of com
pletion between the several fire companies
in the city, having for their object
the appropriate celebration of the Fourth
of July next. Committees have already
been appointed by several of the compa
nies, which are to meet other similar com
mittees, to be appointed by the other com
panies in the city and confer with them as
to the advisability of making a united ef
fort towards celebrating tho birthday of
the country in a manner commensurate
with the importance of the day. Nothing
that could be done on that
day would give more satis
faction to the people of Cuiro, or bo of
greater benefit to the city generally, than a
celebration sufficiently attractive to bring
the people of our neighboring cities and
villages hero and to entertain them in a
magnificent style. We hope that the com
panies will succeed in conBUtnating their
plans and in carrying them out.
It doeH not seem likely, at least not
for awhile yet, that the council will resolve
to provide tho officers with uniforms, but,
whether they do or not, it would not be
very objectionable should they appoint a
shrewd man as a secret detective, whose
sole duty it should be to ferret out the se
cret gambling places in the city and bring
those who frequent them to justice.
Thcro are always some, but
now a very largo number of strangers in
the city, whoso presence, to judgo from
their appearance and behavior, is undesi
rable to say the least. There are also, not
withstanding the fact that several
attempts have been made to break them up,
a number of places in tho city where gam
bling is nightly permitted. Ot this but
few who have any knowledge of the man
ner in which tho places are couductod,
have the least doubt. But the
managers have had so much
experience in the business are so extreme
ly careful in conducting it, are so well
protected by signals, spies, etc., and per
sons who engage in the nefarious games of
chance (?) are so given to perjury, that it
has seemed to be absolutely Impossible to
successfully raid these dens of vice in the
past. It would Boom that a police force,
such as Cairo has had for tho last number
of years, should have been
able to rid the city of
all public gambling hulls' by bringing the
proprietors thereof to justice; but such has
not been the fact, the several attempts that
wero made, proving failures, either be
cause they wero opposed on the side of the
defenso by perjured testimony, or because
they were entirely unublo to get evidence
to prove their side of tho case. For this
reason it might be well to have a secret de
tective, whose chief business it should be
to hunt down criminals that succeed in
evading the other officers and to assist In
collecting evidence for the prosecution
whenever it is found neeessary, to convict a

The river is still rising and, at St.
Louis, considerable damage has already
been occasion3d by tho flood in that city
The various dykes on the Illinois side still
hold tolerably firm, the breaks reported
within the past three or four days being
generally lnsinhcant, but a point is now
reached when a wide region of country
may be flooded at any time and w hen em
bankments at different points arc liable to
give way. In Last bt. Louis and tho towns
of Venice and Brooklyn the people arc un
der the gravest apprehensions, and should
the rise in the river continue the damage to
property in North St. Louis wi1' be heavy.
Whether the river will go much higher or
not is a point upon which tho oldest heads
disagree. A great deal depends upon what
tho weather may be for the present week,
not in the locality of St. Louis so much as
in the region drained by the upper Missis
sippi and Missouri. The river at Cairo has
reached that point where it spreads over a
vast territory and thus prevents a higher
rise which accounts for the small effect
noticed here in comparison with the dan
gerous floods where the upper river is con
fined to its channel; a swell of many feet at
St'. Louis would hardly be felt here.
The most exciting scene that occurred
in or about Cairo for some time was the ar
rival here ot the steamer Springer from
New Orleans yesterday. As she
came in sigtit she blew the
danger signal, which was
answered by every boat and tug in the har
bor. This blowing continued and was oc
casionally interrupted by tho booin of a
cannon from the boat until she reached the
city, which she did in a remarkably short
time. But before the blowing of whistles
and, firing of cannon ceased, somo one,
believing that a boat in the harbor was
afire, gave the alarm from one of the down
town engine-houses; this was quickly taken
up by all tho other fire bells
and for a fhort time the wild
sounds that filled the air caused
every heart to flutter with excitement, and
hundreds ot peoplo to hurry towards the
levee. The sight from the levee was cer
tainly a magnificent one, for tho boat,
which is one of tho handsomest on the
river, plowed through the water at an ex
traordinary speed. She and tho Alton left
New Orleans together on last Saturday
evening at four o'clock, and she arrived
here yesterday afternoon at about tho same
hour, leaving the Alton five or six hours
behind. She made tho trip
in about three duyB and
twenty-three hours, or in over an hour less
time than tho Robert E. Leo made it some
It has been suggested that tho Cairo
police force bo uniformed so that they may
be easily distinguished from ordinary citi
zens. There are to this suggestion, as to
every other that could be made, two sides,
each susceptible ot being well sustained
by reasons. Those who favor it say that
the fact that nearly all largo cities havo
their police officers uniformed is a sufficient
proof that it is a benefit in many
respects. Strangers coming into tho
city who may wi8h to find
any certain placo will know at once from
whom to obtain reliable information as to
the locality of their destination, and are
not compelled to depend upon tho first per
son they meet, who may bo a shark, looking
for prey in tho form of just such persons as
the strangtr is and lead him whore ho can
best carry out his purposo of robbery, or
something worse. Strangers' coming into
tho city where the police are not uniform
ed, will pass an officer half a dozen times
without knowing it, and aro
liable to fall a victim to
any sharper. On the other band, tho po
liceman that is made attractive to strangers
by being arrayed in blue or grey garments
and serves a beneficial purpose to them, is
equally attractive to criminals and gives
them an easy opportunity to evade him
Cities that havo uniformed police are most
ly largo cities, who can afford to accom
modate the strangers that come into their
gates by making their officers eusily recog
ui.nble and at the same time obviate
the evil effects ot the uniform by
employing a number of secret detectives
who are allowed to wear whatever they
The new city council is now thorough
ly organized and prepared to enter upon
the discharge of its duties. The peoplo
will expect from it several reforms several
improvements upon the modes ot conduct
ing the affairs of the city. It will bo ex
pectcd from them, among other things, that
they will curtail the expenses of tho city,
10 ono direction at least. Wo do not wish
to be understood as intimating
that too much money has been
spent in years gone by for
internal improvements, or in tho form of
salaries for officers. Tho few thousand
dollars appropriated for the purpose of
paving the streets, keeping up sidewalks
improving the levee, building sewers, diet
ing prisoners, etc., was not any more than
ought to have been expended for those pur
poses. Tho little ono thousand dollars
year paid the mayor; the insignificant six
ll - lit! ...
uiousanu uouare appropriated lor tho po
lice force of the city during the year; the
triflng sum of five thousand
dollars paid to other faithful
and efficient officers of the city, including
the health officer, treasurer, corporation
counsel, city clerk, street superintendent
etc.-these are all littlo petty expenditures
that the city council must make and pro
vide for. Not one of tho officers ought to
be expected to do their work for kss than
what they now receive, for they are wor
my 01 meir hire and tne worK they are
expected to perform is worth every cent of
what they receive. Knowing all this The
Bulletin would bb the last to favor any
reduction whatever ia the matter of appro
priations for internal improvements, nor in
tho salaries of the city officers unless it
were that of the councilmen and the city
attorney. But look in another direction,
you, whose duty it is to guard well the in
terests of the people of Cairo who are
being so munificently paid for distributing
the funds of the city in the way in which
they will do the most good! Look down
the capacious maw of the press, which sw al
lows up the enormous sum of sixty dollars
every year for doing tho city printing.
Think of it! six hundred dimes six
thousand cents, just for laying before the
people 01 the city the acts of the city
council, etc., during a short term of twelve
months! One dollar and seventy-five cents
is paid by the people of the city for the
publication 01 tne proceedings ot every
council meeting, taking up only two or
three or tour columns in the paper, too. It
is outrageous, and the first and most im
portant duty ot the present coun
cil is to cut down the printing bill.
Everybody knows that sixty dollars ia en
tirely too much to pay for publishing the
proceedings of twenty-four regular and
eight or ten special meetings of tho city
council; the mayor's littlo three column
inaugural address, half a dozen veto mes
sages and annual messages; three or four two
column opinions of tho corporation coun
sel; twenty or twenty-five little half column
ordinances, contracts, advertisements for
bids, committee reports, etc., etc., etc., etc.
We insist that the amount
paid for this work is an inexousa
able wasto of the people's money a
squandering of the public funds. To tell
the truth wc fail to discover any "good and
sufficient" reason why the newspaper
publisher should be allowed anything at
ail tor publishing tho doings of tho coun
cil. It appears to bo a universally acknowl
edged fact that he steals his printing office,
cheats the paper manufacturer, evades the
tax-gatherer, bulldozes tho compositors,
paralyzes'thc landlord and lives on the prom
ises of those ho puffs free of charge. Why,
then, should ho receive any compensation
for tho city printing? Echo answers, why?
The council might make another attempt
to make a bargain with the publishers, and
f it finds that they will persist in their ex-
horbitant demands and absolutely refuse
to do tho little city printing at reasonable
figures, then it knows what it can do it
can have the city clerk post copies of tho
proceedings onto tho telephone posts. This
would probably bring tho obstreperous
printers to terms and, in tho meantime, the
sixty dollars could bo used in paving ono
of tho avenues, or building a city hall with
jail, etc., either of which would bo pre
ferable to wasting it in printer's ink.
