Tho telephone wires were again out of
order yesterday and last night whilo tho
wind was blowing. It seems that, as be
fore, the wires are again becoming too
loose, aro too close together and touch each

mentary interruptions to communication.
The Faducah Enterprise comes out in
an enlarged form since Sunday. Increased
advertising patronage has called for tho
change. The people of Paducah seem to
know exactly how to obtain a large news

of the people of Paducah is worthy of emu
lation by other communities.
A white man, about thirty years of ago
and a strauger, was found lying on the sido
walk, on Twenty-ninth street, on Monday,
lie had been at work with several others,
none of whom were able to tell who ho was,
and he himself was unable to give any ac
count of himself. Officer Henry Dunker
discovered him and took him to St. Mary's
hospitcl, where ho will be cared for at tho
expense of tho city. While, on the dray
on his way to tho hospital, tho man had
several severe fits.
Mass meetings aro being held indiffer
ent parts of this country all the largo
cities in fact expressing sympathy
for Parncll and Ireland, and denouncing
British tyranny. The Cairo Land League,
where is it? Why is it so dumb? Can it not
arouso itself from the lethargy into which
it sunk the day after it was organized?
Perhaps there can be no good results from
agitation on its part; but how can real sym
pathy exist without manifesting itself in
some way? Tho fact that there is no mani
festation implies that there is no feeling.
The Bulletin was not the Cairo pa
per which published the falsehood that the
people of Cairo were maintaining an nn
philaathropic municipal government. Mr.
Skinner can have received his unfavorable
opinion of Cairo from but two sources- tho
garbled and moss covered account Charles
Dickens wrote nearly half a century ago, or
from more recent, but equally slanderous,
publications, which, as belore stated, did
not appear in The Bulletin. While it
was perfectly natural that he should form a
very bad opinion of the place from these
publications, the fact that he accepted
them as truthful and allowed himself to be
lead thereby into making a remark that did
Cairo tho greatest injustice and into an ac
tion that he will have reason to regret,
stands against him.
Secretary Windom writes to the ex
ecutive committee of the river convention,
which is to bo held at St. Louis soon, that
lie probably will not bo able to attend the
convention, as ho had hoped, on acco nt of
tho pressure of public business. It was ex
pected Mr. Windom would be chosen presi
dent of the convention. Secretary Blaine is
expected to attend, or if that is impossible
to send a letter. A congressman of Texas,
chairman of tho committee on commerce,
writes that ill health will prevent his at
tendance, and advises the convention to
make its request of congress that the ap
propriation be general in character for all
navigable rivers, and not especially for tho
Mississippi, as 1ms been the intention, for
reason that ho docs not believe congress will
consider a proposition for a special up.
Thus sensibly speaks tho Globe-Democrat
about a nutter that gives all news
papers, more or less unnecessary trouble :
"Wo cannot understand why tho officers of
a railroad company, when there is an ac
cident on their lino, do all in their power
to keep newspaper reporters from getting
the real facts in the cane, instead of offering
them tho best facilities for doing so. No
newspaper wants to make any event of tho
kind appoar worse than it really is. The
truth is morn valuable to a good reporter
than any amount of guess or exaggeration,
but when tho truth is purposely withheld
it is not astonishing that a little guess and
exaggeration should get into tho report."
The same remarks will apply to other poo-
pie, who are not railroad men, but who aro
equally reticent about matters of public in
terest that concern them, and then blamo
tho nowspaper for not being strictly correct
in giving '.he details of an occurrence
Tho preliminary exemination of John
Shanncssy, for stabbing Louis Lawson, took
placo before Justice O. A. Osborn yostor
day, and resulted in tho acquittal of tho de
fendant. Mr. Angus Leek appeared ior
tho defendant and State's Attorney James
M. Damron for tho pooplo. About ten
witnesses were examined, tho majority be
ing on the sido of tho pooplo. Theovi-
donco for the prosocutlon was, in substance,
that a dispute arose between tho defendant
and LawBon as to who should pay for tho
drinks which had boon taken by them, dur
ing which Lawson callod Shanncssy a .
Bhannossy theroupou grabbed him in tho
laco and ahoved him. But the two men
Wm Darted v thnl fritindu wttliniir in.
1 jatug one another. None of the witnesses, i
about seven in number, wcro able to testify
that Shanncssy did tho cutting. The wit
nesses for tho defenso testified that aftor tho
set to referred to in tho testimony on ho
other side, Shanncssy was followed around
by Lawson, who sought him out in
the saloon in which tho cutting was done,
abused him and strove to do him bodily in
jury, and that he (8hannessy) acted in self-
defense. Both lawyers arguod tho case at
length, each presenting his sido in tho most
favorablo light with tho result as above
The new cabinet begins to materialize.
Attorney General MacVeagh declined to
keep his portfolio, but Postmaster General
James took tho matter under advisement.
His hesitation alono delayed tho comple
tion of the slate, but he bus now decidod
to rotiro and leave to subordinates the pros
ecution of tho star-route thieves. Tho pub
lic may bo prepared for the nomination of
ex-Senator Frclinghuvscn for secretary of
state, and of Judge Folcer for tho treasury
department. The attorney generalship is
equally balanced between George 8. Bout-
well, of Massachusetts, and B. II. Brewster,
of Philadelphia, and it may fall to Solicitor
General Phillips. Robert T. Lincoln is
certain to be secretary of war, and General
EdwardS. Beale will, doubtless, take tho
navy portfolio. Timothy O. Howe has been
partially promised tho postmaster general
ship, and the interior department may bo
conferred upon A. A. Sargent, of Cafl fornia,
or a prominent ex-senator from the west.
Upon investigation the treasury de
partment finds that mutilated silver coins
are, as a general rule, so cut that onc-twon-ty-fifth
of their value is thereby extracted.
Wlmn the mint bureau is enabled to give
an approximate valuo of all mutilated coin,
a thing that heretofore it has been impossi
ble to furnish, in making an estimate of
tho real value of mutilated silver, thero
should be a deduction of ono-twenty-fifth
from the values represented as below,
which are the real bullion values of the
general coins. Trade dollar, 88 8-10 ; silver
dollar, 87 2-10; half-dollar, 40 8-10; quar-ter-dollar,
20 4-10; twenty-cent pieces, 10
4-10; dime, 8 2 10. The silver coins of less
face value than tho dollar, are issued for
change purpose only, and are intentionally
overvalued to prevent their being exported.
The alloy of the gold and silver coins,
which is copper, is of such slight value that
it is not reckoned in estimating the value
of the coins, and is put in principally to
make the coins durable.
A few nuts tor "Truth" to crack: If
there iB only one hospital in the city and
that Is St. Mary's Infirmary, where is the
MAIU.NB nosriTAL, in which, as Truth form
erly asserted, charity patients are treated
nearly every day. It tho Sisters do not
keep separate accounts of river men treated
by them, how aro they to know t!io amount
of their claim against the government a
any given time? If there is in the city a
marino hospital, as Truth formerly asserted
there was, is not Dr. Carter, who is the
representative of the government which has
established and maintains it, properly its
head, under the government, and must not
his orders bo obeyed by tho sisters? If
Truth was right when lie said, in substance,
that there was but one hospital in Cairo,
which was, of right, the marine hospital,
how can he now bo right when he says that
"thero io but ono hospital in
Cairo, which is St. Mary's hospital?"
If Dr. Carter is, as The Bulletin has al
ways said he was, a consciencious gentle
man, who would not spend ono cent of the
the government money, except as directed,"
and if, as must be admitted by "Truth," the
government does not permit tho use by him
of the money placed at his disposal from
tho raarino hospital fund, in tho care of
charity patients, how can it bo said that
tho mahine hospital, not St.
Maky's hospital, mind, docs treat
charity patients nearly every day?
If it is true (which it is not) as has been so
often stated before "Truth" asserted it, that
"tho makink hospital has treated charity
patients almost daily," was not then tho
maiune honpital fund, which is set asido
exclusively for river tnnn who are not char
ity patients, misused; and can a person who
would so mituio it bo "honest and conscien
cious?" For tho information of "Truth,"
who is evidently not, like The Bulletin,
incapable of being instructed, w'o say, in
conclusion, that The Bulletin has always
held that tho blanin of attracting sick pau
pers to tho city lay with tho marino hospi
tal, orjtho marine hospital station, which is
all the same, and that tho said marino hos
pital, or marino hospital station, attracts
sick paupers who aro under tho mistaken
impression that they are entitled to treat
mont in it. Many of these paupers aro
river men who hovo been from the river
longer than thirty days, but who do not
know that they aro therefore debarred from
marino hospital treatment. They como
hero without means because they know
that tho marino hospital is hero; thoy apply
for treatment and aro refund. Thereupon
they lie upon tho streets or forco themselves,
or aro forced, upon St. Mary's Infirmary as
charity casos. The Bulletin never insir
uarcd that St Mary's Infirmary is a nui
sance never printed a word against it
but it has published truths which wore not
favorable to the marino hospital, or marino
hospital station, which is in tho same
building with St. Mary's Infirmary. For
the benofit of tho Cairo reading publio we
do hope that "Truth" will soo when . ho is
worsted and blow his horn no more.

however, and captured him before he had

him by force without hurting hini, unless

hesitated, saying that ho belonged to the

you belong to the militia, I guess you can

or I'il clap you both in jail." Tho militia
