Speaking of the complaints made in
this city against tho thrill-voiced factory
whistles, tho Peoria Journal says that "tho
greatest mystery of modern times is, why
are steam whistles tolerated at all in closely-settled
communites? They servo no
useful purpose, that could not ho easily ac
complished by other means, and they are,
without exception, big ones and little ones,
unmitigated nuisances. Every city should
pass an ordinanco prohibiting their uhc. In
tho great manufacturing centers of Eng
land, such as Manchester, Birmingham and
Sheffield, neither steam whistles nor the
equally infernal clanging of hells, is per
mitted. Both aro known there ns Yankee

It is given to a few men onco in ft cen
tury to achieve immortality, Blessed is
tho man who sees and grasps his chance !
His namo descends "tho ringing grooves of
time" with ever new and gathering acclaim.
Babes learn it on their mother's knees. It
is a household word in the homes of men.
Steamboats aro named by it. Trotting
liorses bear it around tho shouting track.
New fledged graduates spout it at college-
commencements and our fellow-citizens of
African descent aro booked under it in tho
polico courts. There aro a few men in this
city of Cairo over whoso head Fame, with
trumpet to her lips, poises this day on sleep
ing wings. She asks tho word to make
theso men immortal, to pour their resound
ing names upon tho airs of twenty centu
ries. Never had men such an opportunity.
Will they seize itl Will they just give tho
word and let Madamo Fame bellow through
that trumpet until tho is hoarso? Tho men
referred to ara tho worthies who compoio
our street committoc And hero is their
opportunity. Wc give thorn tho point for
nothing, Wo reveal their chance to bo a
memory and a namo forevcr.and don't ask
a cent. Fourteenth street, between Walnut
and Cedar streets is graced by a disgraceful
public pump. That pump as it now stands
is a sublime nuisanco. The waste water
tunning therefrom has the infernal habit of
cutting up the street n)6t outrageously a
habit which makes those unhappy people
who havo cause to pass there with their
teams, forget their days of youthful in
nocence, and utter forth language not at all
Bnnctioned by the revised edition. Will
tho street committee have the street repair
ed and arranged matters so that the water
usually wasted will cease to do damage, as
heretofore? Will it do this and do it quick?
There is tho street committee's immortal
chance! Hundreds of unfortunate people
will ask them for a lock of their hair, and
as many will beg their autograph. They
will be mentioned in the prayers of men
saved from the temptation to uso language
not authorized out of the pulpit. Many yet
unborn will bless their names. Did ever
immortal fame offer hcrsolf so cheap?
In a lengthy reply to a defenso of tho
prosecuting attorney of McLean county, to
whose neglect of duty the Bloomington
Bulletin charged, was partly duo tho
looseness with which criminals in that
county aro prosecuted, and the disregard of
law among tho peoplo of the County, ns evi
denced in tho recent hanging of a murderer
by a mob, the editor of tho Bulletin uses
tho following very sensible language, which
the prosecuting attorneys of this city and
county will please take to their hearts and
seek to profit by: "If the officers of the
law the lawyers of the people were as
heartily devoted to their work as the law
yers of the defense usually are to their client,
the perjury of men making affidavits for a
change of venuo would bo expoBed and
punished, and tho patienco and activity of
tho people would not often be worn out.
The officers of the law, not tho people, too
often become tired ore too frequently
made weary by bribes or by inability to
faithfully and competently perform their
duty. It is truo that our criminal laws
might be somewhat amended to their bet
terment; but in general thoy arc good and
wise laws and were used satisfactorily in
tho protection of life and property during
centuries when ignorance and violence
were common. To-day the practice un
der tho criminal law of Illinois is in
force in England and in tho New England
states. In England the detection of crime
against person or property is usually fol
lowed by conviction and punishment, and
in England the accused has all the benefits
that ho can obtain from tho technicalities
of the law. Hut there, public-prosecutors
know the law and have tho ability and dis
position to enforce it. In tho New Eng
land states murder is frequently punished,
and New Jersey justice tho certainty of
punishment for crime in New Jersey has
become proverbial. In many ot the coun
ties of Illinois, murder is punished by
hanging, but in McLean county murder
was never punished by hanging until it
was thus punished by the mob of Saturday
night. This is a fact. It is not a fact be
cause the supreme court is partial to Mc
Lean county murderers. It is not a fact
because the criminal laws of Illinois are so
defective that murder cannot bo punished
under them. Murder is often punished
under theso laws in other counties It is
not a fact because no murder that could be
proved has ever been committed in Mc
Lean county. There have been not a few
cases of murder most foul in this county.
If then, neither the supremo court or the
laws aro to blame, why cannot murder be
punished in McLean county? Tho only
answer is, because either the pooplo sympa
thise with and protect tho murderers, or
else our administration of criminal justice
is faulty. We ploaso to believe that the
people arc not to blame, ami we aro there
fore compelled to come to tho conclusion
that the criminal laws aro not enforcod in
McLoan county because of tho fact that tho
officers of tho law are either incompotcnt,
neglectful of duty or corrupt!
CARD OF THANKS.

heartfelt thanks of myself and family to
our many friends for their manifestations
of sympathy toward ourselves and our un

About eleven o'clock yesterday forenoon
a quarrel between the notorious John Shan
ncssy and a young Swedo, named Louis
LawBon, a c omparative stranger in this city,
resultod in a cutting affray in which the
latter received a deep, straight stab in the
abdomen, which, in tho judgment of Dr.
G. G Parker, who soon after attended him,
is likely to result fatally,
Lawson is a young mun of about twenty
flvo years of age; lie has been in this coun
try only a few months and in tho city but a
few weeks; being employed during part of
the timo of his residenco hero in the Illi
nois Central railroad yards. Ho is said, by
those who have associated with him, to bo,
as a rule a very quiet young fellow who
would not be likely to pick a quarrel when
sober, though there may bo an exception to
this ruio when under tho in
fluence of liquor, which, however,
does not appear to have been tho caso yes
terday. John Shannessy, tho aggressor in tho
affair, is well, and not very favorbly known
by nearly everybody in tho city; he is also
yet a young man, but has during his life
lead a checkered career. He has been
roaming over the country considerably, but
for some time past has lounged around Cairo
and, until recently, caused tho police of tho
city not a liftlo anxiety. For a week or
two past ho has been employed in a down
town saloon, though not steadily, and, it
seems, quit work several days ago.
How the two men met, or whether they
have been associates for any length of time,
does not appear; but that they had been
drinking and quarreling together yesterday
shortly before the cutting took Jplace, is
known. The first manifestation of ill feel
ing between them was in the saloon of Mr.
Dennis Mescal, on the corner
of Twenty-ninth street and Com
mercial avenue; but what tho
subject of their quarrel was is somewhat of a
mystery, as but few people paid any atten
tion to them. During their quarrel in Mr.
Mescal's saloon, Shannessy attacked Lawson,
grabbing him in tho face and scratching
him severely; he also drew a knifp, but, by
the timely interference of friends, the two
men wero parted and the knife taken from
Shannessy. When, a few minutes later,
peace seemed to bo restored between the
two men, and, after Lawson who was under
the influence of liquor, had gone to. the
saloon of his boarding house, Mr. Patrick
Walsh's establishment, two blocks below
where the first quarrel was had, tho kn if
was restored to Shannessy, who then also
left. It seemed that he went straight to
Walsh's saloon, whero tho quarrel was
renewed, and where it ended, as above
After be was cut, young Lawson turned
very pale, stepped outside of the door,
pressing. bis hand Against his ntidomen, and
told those standing around tlmt ho was cut.
He had a slight cut on the left side of his
head and thoso who saw him first thought
his injuries only slight; but tho blood
which ran from the wound in tho abdomen
soon saturating his clothing told a diff
erent story. After standing against the
door post a few moments he staggered up
stairs, but was soon after conveyed to the
hospital, where Dr. Parker attended him.
Right after the cutting, somo one again
took the knife away from Shannesy, and in
doing so received a severe cut across the
inside of his fingers. This is the story as told
by two eye witnesses to tho affair; but as
usual in such cases there aro different stories
afloat. It was asserted by some that young
Lawson had first threatened and even as
saulted Shannesy with a knife, and that tho
latter was compelled to use his weapon
in self defense; but this version
is flatly contradicted by the witnesses afore
said who say that Lawson was entirely nn
armcd and did nothing to provoke tho
Immediately after the cutting, Shannessy
left the saloon and went rapidly down
town ; news of tho affair was telephoned to
police headquarters, and Officer Mahanny
detailed to capture Shannessy. Tho offi
ccr, on horseback, was not long in catching
up with his intended prisoner, whom ho
found walking leisurely down Poplar street;
and when he reached Seventeenth street,
the officer catno opposito him and told him
to consider himself under arrest. "Have
you got a warrant?" asked Shannessy, with
out stopping. "No," said tho officer, "I
havo not, but it makes no difference; you
aro under arrest." "You'll havo to get a
warrant before you can take me," continued
Shannessy, still slowly walking on. "Never
mind the warrant, John," replied tho offi
cer, "you may as well submit peaceably,
because if you don't I'll have to make you,
that's all." Shannessy did not reply, but
neither did ho seem to bo inclined to sub
mit. At this stage the officer alighted from
his horso and tied the animal, vhilo closely
watching his intended prisoner and ready
to givo chase In caso there should bo any
such necessity. But Shannessy did not run,
ho walked along slowly until tho officer
caught up with him and quietly submitted
to arrest, soying that ho was bound for his
place of employment to draw what money
was duo him, and would then havo gone to
Magistrato Comings' court and surrendered
himself. Ho was tnken to tho city jail, but
will probably bo transferred to tho county
jail for safekeeping until the result of his
bloody work is apparent.

chango should bo road and taken to heart

by a large number of people in .this city:
All good men and women hold tho scandal
monger as tho meanest and most degraded
of human creatures. Whether male or
female, the tattler cannot be otherwise than
an object of aversion. Cold in heart, ma
lignant in mind, their depraved and vicious
impulses aro the counterpart of the snake.
Indeed, by consent, they have been named
Bnakes in the grass. Over all that is good
and pure they draw the trail of their mean
ness, they deal in a currency that is tainted
with fchame, misfortune is their delight,
and what they fail to discover, their minds,
trained to treachery, is quick to invent.
Theso social vampires belong to every com
munity. The moral deformity of their
natures makes them pursue their calling as
tho hound follows the slot of a "quarry.
They are to bo seen in every place where
men and women congregate. In stores, in
offices, in quiet business circles, but most
of all in society. The social spy is not an
improvement on Mrs. Grumly. She tattled
for the love of gossip; the spy dignifies tho
occupation with tho cool malignity of Blan
der. Pale-faced, cold-blooded, with tal
low complexion ami expressionless eyes,
they pervade their little circles, gathering
their stock in trade as a bee collects its
honey, and then amplifying it, as a spider
spreads his net. Cairo, like all other com
munities, is cursed with a number ot these
creatures. Would that a pestilence might
overtake them and wipe them from tho
face of the earth !
