With an improved channel the Missis

Tho authorities at Washington have

the bad condition of the timbers of tho

but the order to have the repairs made has
not yet arrived.
It should be borne in mind that the
city does not "contract with a party to
supply it with water for thirty years at
$0,000 per year." The city aokees to
patronize Mr. Daniel's water works, on
condition that he build them in a certain
way and within a certain time. "Only this
and nothing more."
Nine members ot the Cairo Temper

Damron also filed the necessary informa
tions in the cases yesterday evening.
The city requires a gravel contractor to
furnish something t'.iat is to belong to the
city with which to improve property that
does belong to the city. The city requires
Mr. Daniel to construct property that is to
belong to Mr. Daniel and agues to patron
ize that property to a certain extent upon
certain conditions. There is no comparison
betwenn I lie two cases.

In spite of the bad weather tho attendance

As a rule a bond is given to secure the
recipient airainst loss from any act or
neglect by the giver. Would the city, ns
tho recipient of tho bond, lose any portion
of that $180,000 in case Mr. Daniel failed to
comply with tho letter and spirit of his con
tract. Again wo ask, as we have asked
several times in vain, what risks does tho
city run? Are we to be satisfied with tho
insinuation that she may lose that which
she never had?
The rate by river determines the rate
by rail. The improvement of tho river
would reduco tho cost of transportation
throughout the country. Tho United States
government reports show that the cost of
transportation on the rivnr is but 1 mill per
ton per milo, or only about one-tenth of tho
average cost of tho tonnage movement on
tho railroads west of the Mississippi, and
only one-sixth or tho averago cost on tho

Thero seems to bo little doubt that
Judge Folger will bo nominated for Sccre
tary of the Treasury to-day, and4that he will
accept on certain conditions. Tho condi
tions are that he bo appointed to the Su
preme Bench of the United States to suc
ceed Judco Hunt. It is understood that
Judge nunt is anxious to retire, and that
on Judge Folger's appointment as his sue
cessor ex-Senator Conkling will becomo
Secretary of the Treasury. The knowing
ones say that Conkling would be appointed
just now, but that neither his health nor his
legal engagements will permit. It is be
lieved that ex-Senator Howe will certainly
be nominated to-day for Attorney-General.
Five hundred delegates aro in attend
ance upon the Mississippi river improve
ment convention at St. Louis. Mark II
Dunnell, of Minnesota, is to be permanent
president. The Missourians are greatly
disgusted over the fact that the gathering
is divided into squads eager to advance the
interests of tho localities they represent. It
appears to be a Mississippi river convention
only in name. It should bo impressed
upon the minds of the gentlemen of tho
convention that they cannot induce con
gress to improvo every river in the country
at once, and that a demand to do so would
elicit from that body only jeera. If they
succeed by instituting a persistent demand
upon congress, in inducing that body to
make a beginning, and that, on the Mis
sissippi river, they will do well, indeed.
The improvement of this river's tributaries
will follow naturally.
Why not compel the Singer Manufac
turing Company and the Dixie Cotton
Seed Oil Company to give a bond; both of
them aro granted privileges of value . to
them by the city. It will be argued that
the city does not agree to patronize them to
the amount of $180,000 when their respec
tive works aro completed, therefore they
need not give a bond. This is as rauJi as to
say that because the city agreed to patronize
Mr. Daniel's water works to that amount
when they are finished in a certain way and
at a certain time, he, Mr. Daniel, should be
required to give a bond of twenty or thirty
thousand dollars. In other words, Mr.
Daniel should bo required to givo the city a
heavy bond in order to keep her from pa
tronizing his water works in case he fails to
build them. Such reasoning is tho shcrest
nonsense as evory sane man, excepting, of
course, the editor of the tho Argus, will see
at a glance.
The Charleston Courier has the follow
ing: Thomas Lynch, who seems to be a
professional tramp and dead beat, picked a
fuss with Green Sandidge ono day last week
and was sent to tho calabooso for several
days. Ho got out of limbo on Monday,
walked into Deal & Hequcmbourg's store,
picked up an overcoat, took it to John Lin
dsay's store in tho next block, and request
ing him to wrap it up, walked out. Mr.
Lindsay didnt like tho way tho matter
looked so ho took tho coat down to Deul &
nequcmbourg's store where it was at onco
identified and in half and hour Lynch was
in tho county jail, on a pica of guilty to petit
larccncy, before Esq. Randolph who senten
ced him to five days imprisanmont."
Thomas Lynch, has figured prominently
and often in tho Cairo police courts. IIo
seems to have charged his bason much to the
relief of tho offices of Cairo.
Slowly but surely Tna Bulletin's
prediction that Conkling and his horde of
followers were only temporarily defeated
and would rise to wield a controlling influ
ence in tho government of tho republic, is
coming true. Ono by ono tho half-breeds
havo been mado to give place to the Btol
warts, and through regular gradations tho
half-breeds havo boon educated up to the
stalwart viow until now they admit with
out a murmur tho ascendency of their arch
enemy, Conkling himself. Most of Arthur's
appointmonts so far have only boon steps to
this result, in ordor to prcparo tho ' humili
ated half-breed mind for tho greatest shock
of all. Logan, Grant, Conkling and Camo
ron, a quartetto which but a few months
ago was looked upon by the republican
press as a mere babe in political strength,
has suddenly, phrcnlx like, rlson from its
political gravo to wield tho scopter of pow
er, and none thero aro to raise even a whia
per against them, i '"

Thoughtful persons who have kept an
eye on county affairs for several years past
see tho need of introducing new blood into
tho board of county commissioners of Al
exander county. Not that thero has been
any misniangement of county affairs, for
this is not the case, leaving but, of course,
that little swap ot the poor farm; but the
board has not been properly constituted.
There baa been too much
Northern Alexander county blood in
the board's veins and too little Southern Al
exander county blood. And this blood has
told, somewhat to tho detriment of this end
of the county from Hodges Park down.
Common fairness and the eternal fitness of
things demand that this half of the county
should have tho majority of tho countv
board. All fair minded persons who
know how the interests of tho
county aro divided will grant
this cheerfully. But eyen if the greatest
interests of tho county were not centered in
tho southorn half of it, the fact that tho
northern half has held the majority on tho
board so long should cause it to willingly
accord to the southern half as a privilege
wnat it would seem to bo entitled to as a
right. Mr. Ilazlowood, of Hazle
wood precinct, in the northern
t At .
nan oi me county, wtio lias an
nounced himself as a candidate for the
position vacated by Mr. Brily, also of the
northern half, is a gentloman who has all
good qualifications for tho office and ho
would mako a good commissioner. With
him, the board would be strong in all that
1b right. But thero is this objection to him :
ho would represent the interests of a por
tion of the county, which aro
already amply and ably repre
sented by Mr. Gibbs. This objection
may bo regarded as trifling in Ilazlewood
precinct, but increases in weight as you
travel this way. It would not bo a fair rep
resentation of all tho votes of the countv
and this alono should be the most potent
objection in the mind of a fair minded
American citizen. Mr. Peter 8aup, the
gentleman who opposes Mr. Hazlcwood in
tho canvass, does not only possess all tho
good qualities for the position that his op
ponent does, but meets fairly the objection
raised against Mr. Ilazlewood. ' With Mr.
Saup, Mr. Gibbs and Mr. Halliday on tho
board, there would be a concentration of
that best of articles at all times, good sense,
thero would also be experience and un
doubted integrity, and there would be a
fair representation of all parts of tho coun
ty! for Mr. Saup's Interests are not conflnod
to tho city, but extend Into the heart of tho
county. Mr. Baup commands the respect
and ouuht to havo the vote of the countv
irrespective of party or place of residence,
and that ho will got this is tho belief of
