It is a fact that must be credited to the
managers of the two circuses that have

the many visitors who were attracted to the

unusual going on in the city on Saturday

Vanderbilt knows a thiugortwo. In an
interview about tho railroad war, on Tues
day, he putin a nutshell the most weighty
argument for the improvement of the Mis
sissippi. Said he: It is natural that under
the pressure of business higher rates should
be imposed. It is just as easy for us to get
15 cents as 10 cents, and that is all there is
of it. As lake rates and insurance increase
rail rates will be higher. When business is
light rail rates will go down. The Missis
sippi must be improved so that water rates
will never increase; rail rates will then al
ways keep down.
Upon further investigation yesterday,
h was found that there was no money due
the man Kyscr from the Cairo & St. Louis
railroad, although his wife had affirmed
that there was, and given Dr. Wood a writ
ten orueron too company tor tno Bame.
The body was, therefore, interred entirely at
the expense of the county, and the poor
woman is dependent upon her well-to-do
aunt iii Kentucky, or her physical strength,
which is much impaired. Dr. Wood left
the order with the officials of the Wabash
road, who gave him to understand that
there might be something duo the man
from some other railroad company.
Mr. Thomas McClure, from up in this
county, and Deputy Sheriff Guy Morse,
who went down the river in a skiff a few
days ago in pursuit of four or five men on
a Hat boat belonging to Mr. McClure, had
not returned to tho city last night. The
boat was an ordinary flat boat of medium
size with a railing around it, and was used
by Mr. McClure for ferrying his stock
across a small stretch of water between his
farm and an island in the river. The boat
was valued at about seventy five dollars.
She was seen floating down tho river with
about five men aboard by some saw mill
men near Hodges Park and, the current in
tho river being very swift.it is not proba
ble that they will be captured by their pur
suers. A woman named Sarah Ann Finch was
picked up near tho corner of Twenty-eighth
and Sycamore Btreets, yesterday, by Officer
Dunkcr. She was afflicted with periodical
fits and was in a very helpless condition.
The officer took her to ho city jail building
for temporary keeping, and notified Chief
Myers of her case. The chief, in turn, no
tified Dr. Wood, tho county overseer of the
poor, who paid the woman a visit with a
view to having her taken to St. Mary's In
flrruy at the county's expense. Tho woman
came here only a fow days ago from Gooto
Island, whore she had been residing for
several years with ono Bailey Anderson.
But it appears that Bho was
turned adrift a few days ago and came
down here. She and her relatives were old

Normal, Illinois, and vicinity are
greatly excibd over a startling elopement
which haB just occurred at that place. Tho
facts as obtained by a correspondent are as
follows: Two well known young people,
named respectively W. S. Kees and Minnie
Miller, nephew and uieco of Wm. McFee,
well known citizens of Normal, fell in lovo
with each other. A few'days ago they
planned an elopement, but being without
funds to pay the necessary expenses de
manded for a pilgrimage of love, they be
gan to look around for proper means to
start upon their tour. Young Kees Boon
had in his possession over f 1,000 in cash
which he stole from 1 is uncle, and per
suaded tho girl to fly wich him to somo
sunny clime, the exact location of which is
not at present known, and they fled. De
tectives have been sent out in pursuit of the
runaways, but as yet their capture has not
been effected, although in following them
the officers came within one train of nip
ping them at Lincoln, 111.
The high water at Dubuque is doing a
great deal of damage. The Herald says
that the water along the river front has leak
ed through and flooded cellars and base
ments to bucIi an extent as to drivo the oc
cupants from their houses. A number of
families are now living on box cars and oc
cupy the upper stories of the houses flooded
below. Mayor Linehan has invited all per
sons cn tho flats driven from their homes by
tho water to occupy tho city hall and court
room until the water subsides. Several
families have availed themselves of his kind
offer and aro now comfortably installed in
tho city hall. Tho basement of tho city
hall will also bo used for storing furniture,
provisions, etc., belonging to the unfortunate
pcoplo whom the high water has driven
from houso and home. The water has
finally covered the street car track bctwen
tho Illinois Central depot and tho levee.
The Illinois Central railroad track is also
covered with water between tho passenger
depot and round house.
. It has been tho custom of river conven
tions to meet, talk, pass resolutions and ad
journ, and with that adjournment consider
the work done. These conventions have
been attended by men of national reputa
tion and tho work has been of tho most
splendid character on paper but there it
has ended. No practical, solid good even
in infinitesimal proportion to the magnitude
of the work demendod has evor resulted.
Consulting in conventions amounts to noth
ing without the results of these delibera
tions are practically onforced In Congress.
Here is where the actual work has to bo
done in wringing from a reluctant east and
northeast justice nt partial but full and
complete to those grand and absorbing
interests of the west, which are in no liber
al sense sectional but truly and essentially
national. The present convention is com
posed of men of the largest experience and
ot marked ability, ami what other river
conventions have failed to accomplish, this
one is confidently expected to produce by
such work and after such nvthoda as wo
havo indicated. Sinca tho establishment
of the government, the west, like Mordecai
sitting at the gate tagging for scraps, has
been humbly suing to the east for small
appropriations. The west is now in a posi
tion to demand what she is entitled to, l.ot
as a favor but as her right. With this
power in her hands it rests with the mem
bers of this Mississippi river convention to
see to it that the representation in congress
work to the end proposed, with a persistent
zeal that shall know no flagging.
