for bis refusal a few months ago to con

Messrs. Parnell and Dillon. In his pro
gress through the streets the unpopular ex
mayor was hissed by a mob, but no per
sonal violence was offered.
One John Haley was drunk Tuesday
night. He was very drunk; in fact, he was
so drunk that he was not conscious of his
condition either duringjthe time the of spree
or after ho had become sober. Therefore,
he plead not guilty to the charge preferred
against him in tho court of Magistrate
Comings. He was proven guilty, however
and fined oue dollar and costs. Since Mr.
nalcy was so particular to put tho officer
and the court to as much trouble as pos
sible with so little prospect of gaining any
thing, it would have served him but right
had he been findd five dollars and costs.
One, at least, of the county constables

Bhall be filed with the county clerk within
twenty days after tho election. This time

referred to is not an officer of the county

Tho case of Ilurnard Battell vs. the
City of Cairo, which has been on trial in
the circuit court for thrco days past, was
concluded yesterday evening about 5
o'clock. The plaintiff had sued the city
for twenty-five hnndrod dollars damages for
bodily injury sustained by him becanso of
a defective sidewalk. He was represented
by Messrs. Warder and Damron and the
city was represented by the Gilbert BroB.
Dattoll's claim was ably contested, at this
trial as it had been at tho first which re
sulted in a hung jury. The argument in
tho caso was closed In tho fore part of yes
terday afternoon and the case was given to
the jury which, after deliberating about an
hour, brought iu a verdict in favor . of the
complainant, placing the amount of his
claim agilust tho city at five hundred dol
lars. Mr. S. Frink, general freight agent of
tue Missouri Pacific and Iron Mountain
and Southern railway, has Issued a new
freight tariff, which takes effect from Jan
uary 1, 1883. The rates of transportation
between St. Louis, Hannibal, Carondelet,
Cairo, Columbus and Memphis and San
Francisco over the Texas and Southern Pa
cific railways are changed to the following
rates: In less than car loads per hundred
pounds, 1st class, $4.86; 2d class, 3.89; 3d
class. $3.43. In car loads, class A, $2.17;
B, $1.02; C, $1.68, and class D, $1.43.
These rates apply to all points in Califor

The bad state of the crossings in sev
eral parts of the city is exciting some com
ment in this rainy weather and is also
causing little accidents to pedestrians,
which may, in some instance, develope into
damage suits for the city. Some time ago
Tuk Bulletin called attention to the fact
that a lady, while crossing over Fourteenth
street to the postoffice, slipped and fell be
cause of the bad condition of that cross
ing; but the announcement has not yet had
the effect of inducing the proper men to
repair tho crossing. Yesterday afternoon a
young man who was hurrying through the
rain, slipped and fell whilo attempting to
cross an the fragments of planks laid over
Thirteenth street, on the westerly side of
Washington avenue. Ho soemod to have
injured bis foot seriously as he limped to a
railing close by and sat there until a friend
came along, who assisted him to his desti
nation. Such cases are of too frequent oc
currence and should not be allowed to oc
cur because of any failure on the part of
the city to provide safe sidewalks.
Mention was made ill The Bulletin
some time ago that on the morning of De
cember 24, just before daylight, the little
frame cottage of Mrs. J. W. Gibbon, in the
village of Gcigersville, a suburb of Ashland,
Ky., was discovered by a neighbor to be
burning. Mrs. Gibbon was living there
alone, having been abandoned by her hus
band in last October. On that night she
hod gone on a visit to a daughter in Iron
ton, a few miles up the river, and had left
at home her daughter, Fannie Giblwn, 14
years old, and RobertGibbon, alad lOyears
old, but had procured for their company
Emma Thomas, a neighbor's girl, 18
years old . Emma Thomas went relunctant
ly, only after being commanded to go by
her mother. It was the little frame ot
tage in which these children were that was
burning. Tho alarm was given and people
rushed to save the building. Their first ef
forts were to save the inmates, and they
soon discovered that the girls had perished.
Fighting the flames wero neglected for a
time in a vain effort to find and save the
boy. It was some time after the bodies
were recovered before the suspicion of mur
der was excited. It first rested upon the
absent father, but he came to Ashland and
proved an alibi in. West Virginia. Are-
ward of $1,000 was offered for the arrest of
the murderer, and the aid of detectives
was summoned. Tho detectives lost all
trace, but Monday a local constable, James
Hovlin, who had observed a peculiarity in,
the conduct of tnree young men, arrested
them. They aro William Neal, Ellis Craft
and George Ellis, all white. All were ar
rested Monday night, and kept quietly in a
hotel in custody of Constable Holin.
Georgo Ellis confessed to the constable,
and says that Craft and Neal awakened
him on the night of the murder and urged
him to go with thern to Gibbon's house.
He wsnt reluctantly. They entered by a
window. Robert, the boy, was about to
give the alarm, when Craft struck him with
an ax, killing him instantly. Craft then
told Fannie that her time to die had come,
and amid the pitoons cries of the child for
mercy he struck her on the head, killing
her instantly. Neal then killed Emma
Thomas in the same way. Craft and Neal
at first denied Ellis' story, but Neal con
fessed Tuesday afternoon. Ellis and Neal
are married; Craft is singlo. A dispatch
from Catlettsburg, the county seat where
the prisoners are kept, says : "Just as soon
as their guilt is established tho Ashland
populace will resort to lynch law. Tho
nail mill men of Ashland are determined
to not wait for tho uncertain course of tho
, law, and they will meet with little resist
ance from the officers, and will have the
backing of all Kentucky, West Virginia
and Ohio in this region. Old man Gibbons,
the husband, is here insane. Judge Sav
age has ten good, well armed men guard
ing tho jail here, and there will be no
lynching before the trial on Thursday. On
that day no power available here will be
ablo to prevent it."
Tuesday evening the notorious bully
Patrick Lally was sitting in tho saloon of
Mr. Carroll, at the corner of Twenty-ninth
Btreet and Commercial avenue, reading a
newspaper. While thus engaged two wo
men, one of them hia,wife, with whom he
has not boon living peacefully for some
time past, came into the saloon, and after
staying a little while, left again. Soon
after they had gono Lally also left tho sa
loon and followed them. The women
walked slowly up Commercial avenue and
when they reached Thirty-socond stieet,
three men, who wero coming down the
street, stopped them and spoko to them.
While they wore thus engaged Lally came
up, and without a word of warning, struck
the man who was talking to his wife a
brutal blow in the face, knocking him from
the sidewalk. He then pounced upon his
wife with the ferocity of a savage boast,
struck her in the face and about; the head
and chest with his fist until she dropped
prostrate at his feet, and then kicked her
several times in the side and back. Having
thus satisfied his righteous (?) indignation
the cowardly brute left the woman to bo
taken care of by sympathizing friends and
it is thought stole a free ride out of tho city
on an outgoing freight train, to avoid arrest
and lawful punishment. At any rate, Offi
cer Mahanny, who had a warrant for the
fellow's arrest, yesterday searched for him
in all parts of tho city in all the dens of
vice which tho fellow -was wont to
frequent without finding him. The
poor woman is but of slight build and bus
taincd injuries which may prove fatal. She
was carried home by friends and given med
ical attention. Yesterday afternoon she
was still in an uncertain condition. Much
indignation is felt by the people in the
neighborhood where the inhuman assault
occurred, and threats of wreaking physical
justice upon tho burly ruffian's miserable
carcass wero freely indulged in. Lally's
habit of playing the bully upon every pos
sible occasien;'his genejallylifisoluto hab
its of life and his inborn ruffianism, lave
tended to make him dreaded by the meek,
and despised by all his respectable Irish
fellow citizens, among whom, at one time,
he was popular. If he returns to the city
it is probable that it will bo made warm
for him as it should be.
Believing that the people of Cairo are,
and always will be, more or less interested
in the doings and prospects of our former
esteemed fellow citizen, Mr. J. n. Oberly,
The Bulletin reproduces, from the Bloom
ington Bulletin of a late date, tho follow
ing regarding a recont change in the con
duct, the past success and tho present state,
of that paper: "Mr. Oberly has retired
from the business management of the Bul
letin newspaper and Mr. Oliver Beebe, in
truth a good democrat, who beyond all
doubt has been successful in business, and
who above all other consideration is an
honest man and courteous gentleman, has
become his successor in that position; but
Mr. Oberly will continue to be the editor
of the Bulletin and will manage the job
printing department and book bindery of
the Bulletin establishment. During the
past year, Mr. Oltcrly has labored under
many Berious difficulties, which have not a
little impaired the merits of the Bulletin.
He has been at once editor-in-chief, man
aging editor, mechanical director, foreman
of news and job rooms, compositor, general
scolder, visitor entertainer, business man
ager and Inancial agent. With all these
duties upon him in a new establishment
an establishment struggling for standing
room on the supposed exclusive territory
of the Pantagraph and Leader, two well
established and monied journals, boasting
printing offices as complete as any in the
country Mr. Oberly was not satisfied with
his position. He could not give enough of
his attention to any one of his duties; and,
indeed, he was compelled to permit the
Bulletin to make its own way, which hap
pily it has done. It is a remarkable fact
that since the Bulletin was first issued, no
effort has been made to obtain subscribers to
cither the weekly or daily edition of the
paper; and no effort has been made to ob
tain business for cither the paper, job room
or book bindery. We have had no agents
employed no canvassers iu the field ; and
yet our subscription list has constantly in
creased, our advertising patronage has been
maintained and our job printing and book
binding departments have secured a large
and lucrative business. In the month of
December the books of the company show
a net profit in every department of the
office. Satisfied of his inability to edit the
paper and at the same time conduct the
business of the paper and printing office to
tho best advantage of all concerned, Oberly
has made an arrangement with the Bloom
ing ton printing and publishing company
by which he has Wn relieved of the busi
ness management of the Bulletin, and
by which" ho will continue in the editorship
of the paper, and conduct the job printing
and book binding departments in his own
way, at his own expensa and to his own
profit or loss."
Tho escape of the prisoners from tho
city jail Monday night should urgo tho city
council to a npecdy commencement of a
new city jail. There is nothing of which
this city stands in greater need at tho pres
ent timo nothing of which any city, in the
present state of socioty in general, stands
in greater need than a good jail. It is as
necessary as is a good police court and an
efficient polico force Iu tho present state
of Cairo's jail it is matter for surprise that
there are not moro jail deliveries, moro
bloody rows within the walls of tho
single coll, moro deadly assaults upon
the jailor. With tho present jail the affair
of Monday night could bo an every weok's
occurrence; there Is no possible way iu
which it could bo prevented by tho jailer,
unless ho kept an armed body guard with,
hiu whenever he opened the jail door. As
soon as the coll door is thrown open tho
jailer confronts, singly and alone, tho en
tire gang of desperate men in a single
dark room, into which it would be fool
hardiness to enter. Even though there
were but two prisoners in the room (and
there are nearly always more), tho jailer
could be taken at a disadvantage and the
prisoner! could, by a little vigorous action,
make gwod their escape. On Monday night
Jailor Martin used every precaution that it
was possible to use, and which long exper
ience in the position he held taught him to
uso; but, as events proved, they were no
barrier at all, even to a single ruffian, bent
upon gaining his liberty at all hazzards.
Again, looked at from tho prisoners stand
point and from a humane stand point, the
old jail is unfit for human habitation. At
this time of the year when petty criminals
flood the cities, Cairo has. her share of the
increase in this uudesirablo class of people
and her little jail most
always contains from six to
ten men. To crowd these iu one littlo room
from which light aud draft are almost en
tirely excluded, there to remain for weeks
and often months, is cruel, to say tho least.
The average man would revolt at such
treatment. Common humanity and com
mon tienio demand that prisoners shall not
be thrust into dark, damp dungeons, where
a whiff of frth air and a ry of sunlight
are rarities. There is no good reason why
a jail should not have as, milch air as a
modern drawing-room; there is no reason
w hy a jail should uot be disassociated from
foul air and darkness; there is no reason
why a place of socurify should always sig
nify a pluco where men languish and die
for the want of nature's freest gifts to all
who have not forfeited their right toj live.
Make prisoners earn their fare by work
work from which the city as well as the
prisoner may derive a benefit but do not
compel him to lay in a cell to suffer for the
want of pure air and light. Such punish
ment is neither permitted by law nor sanc
tioned by humanity. Nothing can be said
against the city jail on tho score of clean
liness. It is being kept us nent and as free
from dirt of every description as can be.
But it lucks tf!o most important features of
a jail, which the jailer cannot supply se
curity and general healthfuluess. It is
probable that the success of the late at
tempt to break jail by over powering the
keeper will have an influence. It will be
the subject of talk among all the looso
characters in tho city and will induce
them to undertake a similar cuursu in case
they find themselves iu a position to benefit
by it. Something ought therefore to be
done at once.

1882 SWEAR OFF.
"It is novsr too late to do good," and
though the day upon which god resolu
tions ore usually made has passed, we copy
the following advice from the Blooming
ton Bulletin and commend it to the readers
of The Cairo Bulletin as worihy of being
followed by them:
"It is New Year morning, lSS'J, and a
mighty good time to swear off.
Then are several things that ought to be
sworn squire off this morning, and tho Bul
letin rius, in that evangelical spirit which
is its moht distinguishing trait, to mention
a few of them.
The politicians ought to swear off lying
to each other and to tbo people. Do theso
geutlemen know that the year 1W2 dawns
upon fifty millioiisof American people who
have less respect for and Icbs confidence in
professional politicians than any people
ver had for or iu any class of men? t is
a goBpel fact. The only way for tho poli
tician therefore to save himself and his call
ing is to quit lying, cultivate thu truth, and
give tho people a rent. There aro two or
three hundred thousand of theniin office,
and three times as . many wanting' office,
ftnd all of them almost all of them will
ing to lie at least a little to keep or get
office. Some of them are democrats; most
of thorn are republicans; and all of them
ought to swear off.
The drinking man the drunkard ought
to swear off and slick. Ho JottblK'ss has
sworn off before, but ho didn't stick. Sho
will bo much happier to night if you will
she, your patient, palo and care-worn
wife I And they, tho littlo ones they will
know that, somehow or other, ail infinite
change for tho butter has come over tho
household, and that a now light Is burning
ou the household altar; and, somehow or
other, they will catch ths mother's Joy and
bo happy, too. Quit it. Swear right off.
And stick-stick for the whole of 1883." ,
