The president's condition is still favor
ably reported upon by his physicians, but
he is yet in a dangerous condition. Tho
poputar impression seems to have arisen
and is even shown in some of the newspa
pers that, the first shock having cen
passed, the president is almost out of dan-
gtr. A graver mistake could not be made.
Lying weak and exhausted upon his back
in the whito house is a man with a wound
so terrible that one less strong and plucky
than the president would have been dead
ere now, and the slightest accident may at
any moment bring a fatal ending. It is
well to get accustomed to the idea that the
telegraph may bring any day sad news of
the death of James A. Garfled.
The correspondents of the department

The Stinson-Willard habeas corpus
case, which has occupied the attention of
Judge D. J. Baker fr several days past,
was decided against Mr.Stinson. The cir
cumstances in the case are quite interesting.
Mr.Stinson is cashier of the insane asylum
and Mr. Willard is banker in -Anna, III.
Some time ago Mr. Willard ioaaed some
one living in the county a sum of moucy
on a note up i which Mr. Stinson appeared
as security. The note came due, but the
creditor failed to meet it
Mr. Stinson, being surity,
went to the bank and offered to take
up the note, saying that he was secured by
jwrtgnge. But for reasons not stated Mr.
Willard said, ''never miad some oth:
time will do just as well," or words to that
effect. Some time afterwards Mr. Wil'ard
produced the note and demanded, not only
the priucipal with interest from date to
maturity, but also tor the time that it had
been overdue. Stinn paid all but the last
named interest, which he refused to pay.
This lead to a lawsuit, which resulted in a
decision tor Mr. Stinson, Mr. Willard hav
ing to pay all the expenses of the suit.
It appears, however, that he failed
to pay a lawyer fee of twenty-five dollars
which Mr. Stinson had incurred, and which
the latter had to pay himself, but for
which he subsequently persistently dunned
Mr. Willard and which he (Willard; just
as persistently refused to pay. Meeting
Mr. Wiihrd in buggy one xUy, Stinson
hailed him and, as usual, aked him tor
the money and when refused, attempted to
get into the buggy and "ride it out."
When S'inn persisted in his attempt to
climb into the vehicle, Wiilsrl struck him
oyer the buck with his bugjy whip.
Exaggerated at this, Stinson, leing
tte more muscular f the tw drew Wil
lard out of the fo'igzy and a iiniuistere J
unto him a thorough thrashing, wh-reupon
the latter Lad the former put upon a peace
warrant of to hundred dollars. Stinson
refused to give the Und and also refused to
go to jail, but hired a bailiff to watch him
for uie time. Getting tired of being
watched he sought legal advice vnd deter
miued to take a change of veciie to this
county. The argument for the defense was
that a certain law wis unconstitutional, and
that therefore the onirt, which placed Mr.
St5n.a under a peace bond, bad no juris
diction in the cis-e; but Judge Bl er de
cided that the law was couwitutional,
and that hercfire the court had jurisdic
tion in the can. and reinsodad Mr. Stinson
bark idtv the custody of the orhcer. I
Elsewliere in this isueof The B';ixk-
Trx will be seen an article from the Stite
Journal, in which the problem of holding
or not holding county elections next till is
ably and fully discussed. The State Jour
nal, as nenr'.y every one knows, is a repub
lican piper and the official organ ot the
state. It hus, from the time the discussions
as to the legality ot the recently passed
election law first began, sided with the leg-
islst'ire an I the governor of the sUte in
saying tint the Uw is legal and that
no county elections can legally be
held r.ext November. In tbU article
the Journal exhausts the subject, offering
arguments that cannot well he refuted. It
starts out with the assertion that,by popular
vote, the constitution of the state
was amended j as to require the election
of certain county officers that were former
ly elected very two yean, to be elected
ever four years; subsequently the legisla
ture of the sta'.e, in order to make the
state law with reference to the county elec
tion's consistent with the consti
tution as amended, was compelled
to repeal the old election law aod enact a
new, which is the subject of so much ver
bal and written controversy. There arc
good arguments on Iwlli sides, but the
k-st are no doubt upon the side of the
State Journal, the state legislature and
governor. Even Attorney-General Mc
Cartney is not quite . sure ol
his position, for iie says in
a letter recently published that, 'eith"r
there in'i-t bo fin i lection this fall, or the
county olDces referred to in the law in ques
tion are aUdishe I." Attorney General Mc
Cartney represents the anti Journal,anti-leg-islature,
anti governor faction and his chief
argument his only good argument, in
fact, is that tho constitution dftes not per
mit the parage of any law that may have
the effect of extending tho terms of officers
beyond the time for which they wero elec
ted. Whenever the attorney general has
sought to advanco other arguments in sup
port of his position ho has made a cousum
ate tos of himself. But this argument,
strong us it at first sight appears, seems to
bo completely offset by another sec
tion o tho constitution, which
sayN, that the officers, and pnrticularly tboso
to whom reference is made in tho law un
der disctitfion, shall hold their offices until
their successors shall havo lecn duty elect
ed and qualified. Under this section it
would appear tlmt, If fp in any cause what
soever, there were no successors ilected to
ti e offices of county jtiityo, couuty tress-un-r,
etc., the present incumbenta woald
hold over until surh time a their succes
sors wwe duly -elected anil
qualified. It , must .be, tint,
admitted that the legislature
has a perfect right to repeal any law it
pleases; second, that it did repeal the law
authorizing an election of ccitain officers
during the coming full, and third, that
therefore no election can Jegl!y be held in
November 1881. If, then, no election can
be held, no county treasurer, couuty judge,
couuty clerk and county superintendent ot
public instruction will be elected and, there
fore, by special clause of the state constitu
tion, the present incumbents will "hold
their offices until their successors shall
have been duly elected and qualified,"
whicl- will be in November 1832. So
mucn for the present.
CAIRO AS A MANUFACTURING T0V.
SOMETUINO ABOUT THK 8LSOF.R SEW ISO
MACHINE AND D1XIIXOTTOX SEES OIL
The importance to onr city of the estab
lishment hereof a branch of the Singer
manufacturing company's works is so gre at
that a more extended notice of it than has
as yet appeared seems to be justified.
The Singer manufacturing company is
an incorporated company, organized under
the laws ot the state of New Jersey and
has a capital of ten millions of dollar?, the
principal establishment of the company Ic
ing located at Elizabeth in that state. A
branch of the establishment is located at
South Bend, in the state of Indiana, in
which about one million of dollars is in
vested and at which the frames and wood
work of their sewing machines are manu
factured, from five hundred to six hundred
hands being constantly employed therp, the
pay roll for last month having seven hun
dred and fifty names on it. From a failure
principally in the supply of material at
South Bend, required for the manufacture
of the frames of their sewing machines, the
company have leen compelled to look for a
new locatiou and after an extended exam
ination for a new site in Missouri, Illinois
and elsewhere by the superintendent of the
general works at the cast and the superin
tendent ot the branch at South Bend, Cairo
has lieen selected, upon their reports by
the Iwrnrl of directors at the ueneral office
in the city of New York as the
best location for their business,
inasmuch, as in addition to
other advantages afforded them, it se
cures a certain and permanent supply of
raw material. Additional significance is
given to the selection of Cairo when it is
known, as stated in a communication by
the agent of the company to our neighbor
ing town ot Metropolis, that Cairo was the
only place of all with which they had com
municated, that hid not offered tbcui doua
tions ot ground and other inducements to
locate with them. That is, that they pre
ferred to pay for ground here rather than
Lkp if it 4 a itinifirin at anv nthrr rtl.vp.
The company have secured by purchase I
fro'ii Messrs. Hilliday, at very reasonable
figures, the old hub factory property, com
prising the hub factory building, with ten
lot, in block one and ten lots, in block
eight, in the fifth addition to the city of
Cairo, and two hundred and fifty feet of
river front on the Ohio, in front of the
hub factory building. From the city th'-y
have acquired that portion of the railroad
strip abutting upon the lots purchased from
Messrs. Halliday, for which they are to pay
the city one hundred dollars, and from the
trustees of the Cairo Trust Property they
acquired by purchase sixteen and a half
acres in the rer of the hub factory prop
erty, extending from Thirty-fifth street to
Thirty-eighth street and from Commercial
avcuue to Sycamore street, that jxirtion of
the plot of the filth addition, from Thirty
fourth street to Thirty-eighth 6treet and
between Commercial avenue and Sycamore
street, having been vacated by
the trustees to afford to the manufacturing
company aa unbroken space of ground for
their operations from the river to Sycamore
street, excepting the' intervention of Com
mercial avenue, over which connection cm
be, without doubt, made by a bridge. For
the property purchased from the trustees,
the company w ill pay alout twenty-five
dollars a lot, not a fourth of the value upon
a very low valuation. From the trustees
the company also acquire, without cost, an
entire exemption from all wharfage charges
upon all tuaterittls landed from rafts or
loU tor use in their business.
The ageut of the manufacturing compa
ny is, as we understand, already here, mak
ing his arrangements for the commence
ment of work, and active operations will
son begin, the intention being, as we un
derstand, to eventually transfer the business
of the branch at South Bund to th's place.
The selection by the Dixi.i Yd Company
ol this location foi their :l works is an
other significant fact in the interest of our
city; the representatives of tho company,
although having been offered strong in
ducements in donations of land, exemptions
from taxes and otherwise at other locations,
prefer to purchase here, which it is under
stood has been done of block sixty-one, in
the city of Cairo, from Messrs. Galigher
and Ilallidsy and Mrs. Safford.
The selection of this poiut for tho location
of these extensive manufacturing establish
ments having been made by men, who,
from their positions in controlling suuh
vast Interests as they are in charge of it is
allowable to presume aro men of great
businoss experieuce aud sagacity, in con

ALMOST A TRAGEDY.
At alut ten o'clock yesterday forenoon
the alarm ot fire was rung out all over the
city, but there was no fire. The immediate
cause of the alarm was that an old frame
building standing on the north
side of Fourth street, between
Washington and Commercial avenues,
fell down with a loud crash which caused
great commotion among people on the
6treet in the neighborhood and lead others
to believe that there waa a fir? and they
gave the alarm. In its fall it buried four
childred, of fro.n eight to ten years of ai'e,
one of whom was dangerously injured and
two slightly so.
The house was standing on wooden
pillars, about six feet high, aod was oc
cupied by two families, Mrs. Sal lie Bard
and Mrs. Whitehead. It belonged to Mr.
Job". Koehier, who had it but re
cently repaired by Mr. James Suinmerwell,
payii g him upwards of fifty dollars for the
work, which rendered it in a
t'-lcrably safe condition. But it
appears that the occMrjants had
commited depredations on the pnperty in
various ways, the most serious ot which
was the removal of the braces from nea.iy
all the supporting pillr,rs. The children
had attached sw ings to the sills and joists
underneath the house and were amuning
themselves by swinging fit the time the
terrible accident occurred. The pillars,
having no braces, were, of course, easily
swayed with the great weight of the house
upon them and when the children began
their amiiatrucnt, tie momentum given
them in a certain direction, was more than
they could withstand, and the result was aa
The children's names are Belle Sexton,
Belle Whitehead, Fred Doyle and Ed Wat
kins. The first named was seriously in
jured, having her right leg broken in the
thigh and below the knee, the latter being
a compound fracture. She was also some
what injured internally. Dr. Parker, who
attended her, pronounced her injuries very
serious and her recovery somewhat doubt
ful. Belle Whitehead and Fred. Doyle were
slightly bruised, but Ed. Walkins was not
hurt. The children were all rescued a few
minutes after they had been buried by out
siders, who tore up the floor where they
heard their cries. The inmates of the
house were also more or less bruised about
the heads and bodies, aud the furniture
was much damaged.
Mr. Kochler denies that he had been no
tified of the dangerous condition of the
Bcvercnd Jacob Bradley, the notorious
man of God, who stood before the circuit
court yesterday morning, charged with the
crime of perjury, was acquitted, and now
he goes about praising the Almighty for
delivering him once more from the liauds
of his enctuios.
Thomas Henderson, who was charged
with shooting at Officer Tyler with intent
to kill, was trieil by jury, which, after but
a short consultation, decided that he was
