a rental equivalent to 8 per cent, annually

were good rains Saturday in Ballard coun

upon which water works could bo establish

it the council will take 50 double hydrants
at $100 each, for the first year, and $50 a

It is safe to affirm that while, in Cairo, the
report are consulted by most people merely
to satisfy their curiosity, there are many
who put tho information conveyed to them
to a practical use. To river men and ship
pers the stags of the river at different
points, for instance, is of practical benefit
The weather reports, while not made so far
in advance of the occurrence of the changes
they predict as the reports of Vennor and
others, are more reliable and, if regularly
consulted, would and doubtless do, often
influence the movements of those who con
sult them. That this is the case in Cairo
will doubtless appear from the report that
Sergeant W. H. Ray will make to the de
partment after diligent inquiry.
The smartest railroad scheme ever
worked in the south has just come to light.
For months past Gen. John B. Gor
don, and his brother, Maj. Eugene C. Gor
don, and Walter S. Gordon, with Governor
Colquitt, have been projecting a railroad
from Atlanta to Greenville on the Missis
sippi river, and possibly to Tcxarkana. In
consideration of a promise on the part of
these gentlemen to build the road via Col
umbus and Aberdeen, Mississippi, Colum
bus donated to them $100,000 in bonds.
Aberdeen $100,000 in bonds, and Monroe
county, in which Aberdeen is, $150,000 in
bonds. In addition to this owners of rich
coal lands in Alabama, through which the
road was to pass, donated to them 200,000
acres. Not a dollar of capital has been
put in by the fortunate, but they have sim
ply bunched these heavy donations with
the charter of the Georgia Western Hail-
road owned by Gen. Gordon, and transfer
red the whole to the Georgia Pacific Rail
road Company, and will receive iu return
$750,000 and twenty-nine sevenths of the
$5,000,000 of subscription taken in the
Georgia Pacific. Tho subscription looks
ot the company will be opened at once, and
work upon the Georgia Pacific will be com
menced by the Richmond and Danville
Construction Company immediately. Gen
eral Gordon still remains president, but to
Major Eugene Gordon mainly belongs the
credit of working up the donation part of
the scheme. This master stroke has made
Governor Colquitt and the Gordons im
mensely rich men. The contract was let to
tho construction company yesterday, and
the road, which will ruu from Atlanta to
Texarkana, will pnss through Birmington,
Ala., at Texarkana it will connect with the
Texas and Cairo narrow guage.
Many people seem to bo under the iin
prcssion that the city marshal and
the police officers are in duty
bound to take care of such
as may come to the city in a sick and help
less condition. Thoso who think so are
mistaken. The ordinances of the city im
pose no such duty upon the police officers
But supposing that they did, what would
the officers do with such men as Montgom
cry, who died in the hospital night before
last? How could they care for any one, in
fact, who might need shelter when there is
not even such a thing as a police head
quarters in tho city? The little corner
which has been occupied in the Arab fire
company's engine house for several years ns
police headquarters can not bo turned into
a hospital tor tho care of sick strangers.
Besides, the officers are about to bo de
prived even of this small space, for tlx
company has given the chief notice to va
cute the premises entirely by tho
first of next month, and the
reason given is that, during
the winter tho engine house is too much
frequented by tramps at night. Thus it will
bo seen that, for doing just what the peo
ple want them to do, the officers are about
to he deprived of their present little head
quarters (7). Thus it will also bo seen and
generally acknowledged that what the city
needs as much as most anything else, is a
city building, containing a hall for tho
council and offices tor all officials. And
whilo this project is in process of formation,
tho council should provide in some way a
suitable room wheroia the city marshal and
polico officers can keep their records, meet
for consultation, and whore persons in trou
ble can go to make complaint.
The man who was lying in a dvUnr
condition at tho stone depot Tuosday and to
"niu rcieroncc was made in yesterday's
Bulletin, was taken to the hospital Tuts
day night by Dr. W. Wood and died soon
after be arrived there. His name was F.
Montgomery. Ho was about thirty years of
age, his houfewan not ascertained and his
destination teems to have been Cairo; for,
as is evident trora a "deck ticket" found in
bis pocket, he arrived here Tuesday even
ing on tho steamer James W. Gaff on her
trip number ninety. The ticket does not
state at what point between bcre and Mem
phis he came aboard, but it shows that he
had "paid one dock passage to Cairo" and
is signed "Cropper, clerk." Here is a case
such aa The Bulletin rclerrod to a day or
two ago and it is only one of a hundred
similar ones that are brought to the
notice of our authorities every
year. This man was evidently taken aboard
of the Gaff at some point between hero and
Memphis. He was sick at tho time; was in
formed of the existence of the Marino hos
pital here and, under the erroneous impres
sion that it was jpen to all alike, came here
voluntarily, perhape. Arrived here, he can
not be admitted to the hospital because, un
der the laws he is not entitled to adinision;
he can not be cared for by the city, because
there is no city poor fund, and he can not be
cared for by the county, because the county
poor fund has been exhausted and, in tact,
overdrawn long ago. Under these circum
stances what could he do, but to lay down
and wait for assistance trom private sources.
But even private charity, so munificent in
this city, can do such men as Montgomery
was no good; for they tramp around the
country until they are sick unto death, then
come to Cairo when they are beyond all
human power to save, and die. Thus is Cai
ro imposed upon every week, sometimes
two or three times a week, and thus dots
Cairo get ihe repntatien of being uncharit
able and unhealthy. Thus it is, also, that
the Alexander county poor fund, which is
more than large enough to meet the de
mands of a reasonable share of the sick
paupers, is so soon exhausted ami over
drawn; and thus it is, also, that a poor
fund (established by the city, it kept
sufficiently large to meet all demands,
would bankrupt it within a year. Cairo
and Alexander county cau and do make
ample provision to care for their own sick
and indigent, but they can not afford
to provide for the sick tramps
of Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee,
Indiana, Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisi
ana, who come here from all directions, by
rail, river, on loot, in skins and wagons.
The sooner the authorities of the river ami
other towns and cities and the sick bohc
mians, are informed of the fact that Cairo
and Alexander county aro not an asylum
where the world's poor are ted, clothed and
cured, the better it will be lwth for this
community and the world's poor aforo-said.

he is particularly fitted to fill. This com
pany has never been over-popular in the

of the Iron Mountain, and Capt. H. S.
Hayes, vice president of the Missouri Paci

ence in Chicago Tuesday evening. It is
thought they were up there consulting with
other parties making up a slate for the Iron
Mountain road. It is very probable that
innumerable changes will be made in all
departments. Considerable comment was
indulged in as to how Mr. Hoxie came to
drop into Col. Soper's chair. It is very
plain. Iu the first place, he is a railroad
man of no mean ability and has years of
experience. He railroaded under Sidney
Dillon when the Union Pacific was being
built, and wont to Texas for Gen. Dodge.
Both Dillon ami Dodge arc in the Gould
syndicate, and arc the backers of Mr. Hoxie
who is also a great friend to Capt. Hayes,
