Papers have much to say regarding tho
dangers attending tho use of toy pistols,
etc., and all agree that their sale ought to
be prohibited. Same reasoning applies to
largo pbtols. Tistols are utterly useless in
war, and are never employed in hunting;
and their chief mission is to minister to tho
jrvailing mania for murder. It would
seem, therefore, that their manufacture and
ale should be absolutely forbidden. Pro
bably this is going unnecessarily far but
there is no question that very much
inorestringeut restrictions on their sale and
use would he attended with salutary re
sults. Mr. H. A. Ilannon has of lato been
making very extensive improvements on
property in different parts of the city. ITis
two frame houses on Washington avenue
near tho Hibernian engine house, have of
late, under his directions, assumed a
positively handsome appearance. He has
a1'; bought the trame house on
the south side of Thirteenth street, former
ly occupied by Mr. Connors, and will re
move it to a vacant lot on Poplar street,
where he will repair it and place it in first
class condition for a residence. He has
also purchased and improved a number of
other residences and contemplates com
mencing several more enterprises of this
kind in the near future. One ot which is
the erection of a two-story brick business
house on the lots next to Mr. Gerould's gas
fitting store on Commercial avenue. This
he will commence in the fall. Mr. Hannon
is one of Cairo's enterprising and success
ful business 'men who has the greatest con
fidence in Cairo's future and who is not
afraid to manifest his confidence by invest
ing the results of his industry in the im
provement of real estate.
Before the police courts yesterday
business was dull as it has been every day
since the circuit court and gran 1 jury con
vened. This is positive proof that it is fear
of punishment and nothing else, .vhich
keeps men from violating the laws. It
also proves that the punishment inflicted
by the city ordinances alone is not severe
enough to strike terror to the heart of any
man that lusts to commit a petty
crime, and that it is necessary to invent
means by which criminals may be made to
feel less inclined to incur the penalities of
the laws. Unless the police business is to be
regarded as a profitable one to the city
unless the city receives more money during
a given period in the form of fines than it
pays out in an endeavor to maintain the
police force and courts (and nearly every
body knows that it is not the case), then
there can be no consideration which would,
even in the mind of tc most mercenary,
justify a failure to decrease the
criminal business of the city in
any way possible and to tho greatest possi
ble extent. It is evident that the mrre
prospect of even a short term in tho peni
tentiary at hr.rd work has a most salutary
effect in restraining tho strongest proclivi
ties of criminals ot every discription.
This fact should be taken into considera
tion by the authorities of the city and they
should, without unnecessary delay, have
arrangements consummated whereby
every person who violates the city
ord nances is compelled to do work rea
sonably hard work, not only occasionally,
when the sun shines not too hot but work
continually, every day, just as honest, in
dustrious men do, until their fines shall
have been paid. Tho sentence of the po
lice court should bo changed. The fraso;
"four, six, ten or xhirty days in lh) city
calaboose" has lost all force with tho aver
age criminal. It should be "four, six, ten
or thirty days at hard labor u.Ton tho streets
tho city, or in tho jail yard."
This sort of sentenco would stnko terror to
the lazy, concienccless reprobates, who seek
shelter ami food in tho jails of the country.

ferred to and who is not a fool would for a
moment doubt that the jury's verdict was
in strTct aecordance with the evidence and
the law placed before them. If there was
any bribery in the case at all it w as practic
ed upon the witnesses tor the prosecution
or upon the state's attorney and the latter
but few will be lold enough to assert and
would not be believed if it were asserted.
All that can be definitely said about this
case is that, either the management on the
side of the defense was exceptionally good,
or that the management on the side of the
prosecution was miserable.
