Among the many other railicad rumors
with which Cairo air is now heavily laden
there is one to tho effect that Col. W. B.
Duncan, of the Mobile & Ohio railroad, has
set aside $150,000 to bo used in the erection
of freight and office buildings for that road
in this city, and for the purposo of mac
adamizing several of the cross streets in the
lower portion of the city, loading t the

levee. Nothing certain can, as yet, be as
Mrs. S. Williamson has received an

Murphysbnro Independent: "We see
by The Cairo Bulletin that Conductor
Wm. A. Keefo, of tho St. Louis & Cairo
railroad, was voted a lino silver lantern as
the most popular railroad man at a Catholic
fair held in that city. Will is just as pretty
as he is popular and would have won the
lantern on that score. lie has legions of
friends in this city who will be pleased to
hear of his receiving such an honor, and
who would have contributed to it had
they been present."
In several respects Jefferson Davis is
much the superior of L. S. Grant. For in
etanco, he knows when to retire from pub
lic life he has sense enough to see when
the people have hud enough of him. Ho
arrived in New York from a protracted vis
it to Europe, the other day and, on being
approached by a reporter of the Now York
Tribune, with a view to an interview, de
clined one, saying that he was only a "pri
vate person on private business, and his
private life was his own and of no interest
to the world
A new Biipply of song books has been
received for the Methodist Sunday school,
which was made necessary by the increase
in the number of scholars during the last
few weeks. The little falks all have a na
tural love for music, and havo grown to bo
quite perfect in their weekly vocal exercises.
To day the usual services will take place in
the Methodist church, which will consist
of class meeting and preaching in the morn
ing; Sabbath school, in tho afternoon at
three o'clock, and a sermon in the evening.
Rev. Scarrett will occupy the pulpit.
Says tho Springfield Journal: "The
bourbon-Democracy of the south have been
moie fruitful in devising expedients for win
ning elections when the honest votes aro
lacking than any other in the history of
politics." However this may bo the bourbon-democracy
of the south have never de
vised such expedients for winning elections
when tho honest vote was lacking, as were
devised by bourbon-republicanism, lead
by Dorsey, in Indiana, by Mahone in Vir
ginia, etc., etc. Hut, by the way, does the
Journal mean to insinuate that tho quarter
of a million popular majority for Tildcn
was not an honest vote?
The report that Col. J. W. Paramore,
of tho Texas system of narrow-guage rail
roads, has leased the Cairo & St. Louis
narrow-guage road, has, as yet, no founda
tion in fact so far as can be ascertained from
the officers of the company here. The lat
ter road is still iu the hands of its old offi
cers, and extensive improvements, which
have been in progress) here and along the
line for some timo aro still being vigorously
pushed. It is true, however, that Col.
Paramore has both tho money and tho dis
position to do that which rumor says ho
has done, and it appears to be also true that
ho has been looking around the city for
suitable ground upon which to locate very
large machine shops ami other buildings in
which to transact the business of tho com
pany. Should the vapory rumors now
afloat in the air materialize, Cairo would
be benefited to an incalculable extent.
The young temperance people met at
the Reform hall Friday evening iu large
numbers, plentifully sprinkled with mem
bers of the Reform club. Miss Jennio
Wright presided. Tho meeting was open
ed with the usual song by the audience, ac
companied on the organ. A "historical (?)
question" was asked by Miss Anna Jones,
which elicited much amusement. Its an
swer was "Mr. Will. R. Halliday." Miss
Eva Sheppard read an essay on "Hobbies,"
being the same one sho read in the high
school on Friday before last, and it was re
ceived with manifest interest. Miss Annie
Morse concluded tho literary exorcises by
reading a selection of much merit. Short
speeches were made by Mr. G. M. Alden
and Mrs. Aldcn ; also by Mr. George Hen
dricks. Rev B. Y. George, being called
upon, made one of the neatest littlo ad
dresses ever made in the hall, making many
good points, and ho was accordingly re
peatedly applauded. A committee of fiye
was appointed with instructions to confer
with similar committees from other temper
anco organizations in tho city and decido
upon fitting exercises for opening the new
tempcranco hall on Eighth street. Mooting
adjourned with a song and benediction .

CALL EARLY and make a good solection-NO TIME like the PRESENT I
part of the prosecution. There aro several
other cases to be brought against him,
which will betaken up this week, perhaps.
In the meantime, he remains in tho county
jail. Tho caso of Leo Johnson was tho
next one called. The court understood
that Mr. J. R. Cunningham had under
taken tocondictthe prisoner's side of the
case, and was somewhat aggravated bo
cause of that gentleman's failuro to appear
when the caae was called. The prisoner
was asked if Mr. Cunningham was his at
torney; ho admitted that thoro was an un
derstanding between him and Mr. Cun
ningham that the latter should serve in that
capacity, but ho (prisoner) had changed
his mind and did not wish Mr. Cunning
ham to conduct his case. Court ordered
the papers in the case to bo brought for
ward, but these could not be found. The
delay thus caused was very aggravating, as
there were a number of cases still to be dis
posed of. Tho court finally issued an at
tachment for Mr. Cunningham, who, it was
thought, had tho papers in his possession,
and was guilty of contempt of court in his
failuro to appear. Mr. Cunningham ap
peared in court, in company of a bailiff,
somewhat annoyed at the trouble he had
caused, and explained that he did not havo
the papers sought for, and that he did not
iutend to appear as attorney for the defen
dant. The proceedings had been thus do
layed for nearly two hours, at tho end of
which time the papers were found in a
wrong pigeon hole, where some one had
put them by mistake. Being questioned as
to his guilt, the prisoner acknowledged that
ho was guilty, and he was sentenced by the
court to thrco years in tie penitentiary.
Court then adjourned until nine o'clock to
