Massac Journal, Metropolis : "A

Thursday, and not liking tho watery looks
of tho surroundings, returned to the boat
and went on to Cairo." Thus "do persons
who know that Cairo is beyond tho reach
of dangerous high water, como hero to
seek refuge from the floods, and they are
never disappointed, either.
The gentleman, who is to tako Mr. F.
S. Kent's place as manager of tho Western
Union telegraph office in this city, has ar
rived. It is Mr. C. B. Fletcher, of Kau
kakeo, IJ1. He will tako charge of tho
offico We to-morrow. He is a young
man, said to have had much practical ex
perience in telegraphy. Mr. Kent has a
number of very good offers from other
places, either one of which would, from a
pecuniary stand point, be preferable to the
position which ho basso satisfactorily filled
for years in this city. But close application
to duty for so long a timo has been trying
to him, and it is likely that ho will spend
a few weeks here in recreation beforo start
ing for his new field of labor.
The Egyptian Press, of Mairon, says :
"Cairo property is being considerably dam
aged by high water." Will the Tress in
form us where it picked up the foregoing
little item of news? It certainly is news to
every property holder in Cairo. Cairo
property docs not suffer a particle from high
water and is not likely to. The high rivers
are being successfully kept at bay by our
great levees and neither the Mississippi nor
the Ohio river, nor the back water from
either, touches one dollar's worth of proper
ty inside the ombnnkrsente. The editor of
the Press undoubtedly clipped the little
item concerning Cairo from some nowspa
por published in 1807, or else he has been
communing with some old relic of antiqui
ty, who passed by Cairo once upon a time.
On Friday night a murder took place
in Ballard county, Kentucky, near the Love
laceville road. Tho Paducah Enterprise of
Sunday says of the affair: "Mr. Robert
Wilson, who resides in the lower part of the
county, brought to the city yesterday tho
news of a killing at Lovelacevillc, in this
county, Friday night. He knew none of
the particulars, however, outside of the
names of the parties. Tho participants in
the offair were George Stovall, son of Dr.
George Stovall, and Leo Edrington, a form
er resident of this city, and the latter was
fatally shot by tho former, dying soon after
receiving the wound. Mr. Edrington, the
murdered man, is about forty-five years of
ago, and leaves several children. He was
engaged in business at Lovelacevillc.
Stovall is a young man and unmarried."
The excursion on tho ferryboat Three
States, to Wickliffe, last Sunday afternoon,
was attended by upwards of sixty people,
who, in spito of the "cool to cold" weather
as Venor would say, enjoyed tht trip very
much. The boat lay at wickliffo for over
an hour and tho excursionists '.vent up into
town to view tho new printing offico, court
house and other improvements' of im
portance which have sprung up there al
most liko magic within the last few months.
Tho appearanco of tho little" place, as de
scribed by somo of the excursionists,
would lead one to believe that the poople
are posessed of an enterpr!HC,-which, if it
continues to exert itself in tho future as it
has done in tho past, must cake Wickliffu
a very important little river town within a
very few years. Tho excursionists wero
favorably impressed with tho place, and it
is likely that a repetition of tho trip, on a
day when old Boreas is less demonstrative,
will find the Three Siates loaded down
with pleasure sookers.

jurymen who read nowspapcrs have a reck

However, tho dispatches state that the story

Tho latest epidemic reports are as fol
lows: Another caso of Bmall-pox in Ren
ault precinct, Monroe county. Tho patient
is a girl of oighteen years bid, vaccinated in
infancy, but not since; origin unknown.
Attending physicians report to date eight
een cases of small-pox and varioloid in tho
southeast portion of Sr.ngamon county, The
supervisor of Milton township, Du Pago
county, reports nnother caso contracted by
keeping a tramp over night. Tho board
of health of Colchester, McDonough coun
ty, reports the fifth case iu the family of
William Guy. The family has quarantined
since January 18. The board of health of
Moliue, Rock Island county, reports a death
from variloid in a family attacked during
the first outbreak and one now case of small
pox. Tho board of health of Cable, Mercer
county, reports one new caso of small-pox,
bnt the disease is confined to the first fam
ily. Tho board of health of Cerro Gurdo
reports the disease practically under control.
There has been no new case for fourteen
days in Northville township, LaSalle coun
ty. Tho existing case is a Danish immi
grant, who was a passenger in an infected
steamer; "but," the report says, "in some
way was allowed to leavo and come to our
town." Rigid isolation has been practiced.
No other cases have occurred and the pa
tient is doing well.
At the foot of "Gad's hill, Bear Pied
mont, on the Iron Mountain road, a place
rendered historic in tho annals of Missouri
for tho daring train robbery of 1873, in
which the James boys were supposed to
have been implicated, another attempt to
repeat that tragical drama was made
shortly after 2 o'clock, Saturday morning.
The robbers selected tho most lonely spot
for their contemplated "deviltry" they could
find in that wild, desolate and uninhabited
country, which is covered by a dense forest,
tho trees of which shade an extensivw
swamp, and through the centre of which
the Iron Mountain road runs for the dis
tance of over a mile. At that point selected
for the proposed operations they found an
embankment about ten feet in height at
tho foot of a steep grade fully a mile in
length without a curve where track was in
an unusually good condition. Here they
removed a tie at the point whero two tracks
were spliced together with straps, which
they also removed by taking out the screws
holding them to their places, and placing
them on a tie near by. The taps were also
taken from tho rails, which, by means of a
crowbar or sonio other lever, were spread
apart in such a way that the first train pass
ing over the road was doomed to plunge
headlong over the steep embankmentjnto
the morass below. The location of the
train trap at the foot of the grade indicated
that the robbers had made their calcula
tions for the down train, but tho north
bound Texas express No, 2 and the south
bound express No. 2 were both behind
time. As a result the plan failed, and it
was the former train which rushed head
long into the terrible trap. When No. 2
struck the foot of the grade at a speed of
fifteen or twenty miles an hour tho engine,
quick as a flash rolled over the embank
ment, carrying with it the tender and de
railing tho express aad mail cars. As the
engine was going over tho engineer, Mr.
Van Black, leaped from it and escaped
unhurt and tho fireman was thrown violent
ly over the fenco on tho east side of the
track and injured slighly. The soft, marshy
mud in hitch he fell was tho only thing
that prevented him from sustaining fatal
injuries. The engine and tender wero sub
sequently abandoned and tho train pulled
into St. Louis by an engine secured at
Piedmont. It was duo at 0 o'clock a, m.
The fact that Jay Gould, of no stato in
particular and all of them in general, and
O. P. Huntington, of California, have com
bined, and thus gained control of tho St.
Louis & San Francisco railroad, is creating
much disRatisfnction in St, Louis and other
Missouri cities. Col. James Baker, of
Springfield, Mo., for many years connected
with the St. Louis & San Francisco road,
in an interview with a reporter of tho Globe.
Democrat, in answer to thefluostion, "What
is the siguifleancc of tho purchase?" is re
ported as saying : "It means negation
prevention. That is to say it will prevent
all the contemplated and actual progress
toward a competitive connection with
Texas and California, make St. Louis a
sufferer. The situation may bo defined
thus; Mr. Huntington, by his ownership of
tho Southern Pacific and Central Pacific
railroads, held tho gates of California bo
yond peradventure, until tho Texas Pacific
threatened to invade his dominion and do
stroy tho monopoly so long existing. He
saw tho St. Louis & San Francisoo road
roaching steadily and suicly westward,
laboring to givo tho peoplo of this city an
independent competing connection with the
far west, and ho saw herein the decrease of
his profits. Gould had likewise obtained
possession of Texas, and in a similar man
nor controlled its vast extent of trade, til
viding it disproportionately between Chi
cago, St, Louis and Now Orleans, athia
pleasure, as best suited his purposes in
handling the Missouri Pacific; tho Missouri,
Kansas & Tuxsb; the Wabash, St. Louis &
Pacific; the Iron Mountain, and the Now
Orleans & Pacific. To Qould, also, tho
rapid growth and development of tho fit.
Louis & San Francisco road became a stand
ing menace to his monopoly, for he was
convinced that the moment that roadreach
od Texas it would furnish the peoplo of St.
Louis an independent lino that would easily
compete with his combined systems.
After mentioning a number of projected
branch lines, which, in his estimation,
would now be abandoned, Col. Baker con
cluded. 'The general result will, in my
judgment, bo very serious to tho interests
of St. Louis. Tho city will now havo no
independent outlet, nor tho promiso of ono.
It will bo completely at tho mercy of the
whims and caprices of tho two capitalist!
who havo combined to control vast monop
olies, and who have no particular fondness

A dispatch received Sunday forenoon by
Mr. P. W. Barclay, in this city, stated that
Rev.W. II. Whitakor died at Bellvillo at
at nine o'clock that morning. The sad
news falls less heavily upon tho many
friends of the family of Mr. Whitaker in
this city, because it was expected to como
at any moment for several days back ; but
the sympathy with tho bereaved ones is
none the less general or sincere.
On next Sunday services in honor of
Rev. Whitaker will be held in tho Meth
odist church in this city, of which ho was
pastor i'or three successive years.
The cable across tho Ohio river at the
foot of Fourth street threatens to become
entirely disabled. Six of the seven con
ductors aro already severed and the seventh
may break at any moment. Preparations
are in progress for using the Fourteenth
street cable in case of necessity.
THE GRAVEL ROAD.
A bill was presented in tho last and
again renewed in the present congress, ask
ing for an appropriation from the govern
ment of a sufficient sura of money ' to
build a macadamizod road from Washing
ton city to the soldier's cemetery, situated
on Arlington heights, some eight miles
from Washington by road. Wo learn that
tho members of tho scnato and houso in
large measure favor an appropriation
sufficient to establish a good road, for the
reason that there is a desire on the part of
all patriotic congressmen to lend the strong
arm of tho government to establish a road
that will admit at all times of the relatives
and friends who desire to visit the last
resting place of those who gave their last
full measuro of devotiou to save the
nation. The same may be said about the
national cemetery, situated less than ono
mile from this city. Relatives and friends
frequently come here from all parts of the
union to visit the. last resting place of
their dear ones. And on Decoration day
thousands of peoplo como from the three
states, Missouri, Kentucky and Illinois, to
take part in decorating tho graves, and in
tho language of Hon. Emory Storr?, are
compelled "to tako the dust knoo deep,"
"and talk with a puck of dust in their
throats." And wo might add when the dust
disappears, a bushel of mud remains on
tho clothes. The state of Illinois appro
priated f 25,000 to tho erection of an do-
gmt and beautiful monument, which1 is
now situated in the centre of tho cemetery
The general government has done nothing
but entor and place umull head stones at
tho head of each soldier, which of course
is tight and proper. Still it would Beera to
us that tho general government ought in
justice, assist in making a good and pass
able road to and around tho national cem
etery. We would liko tho assistance and
views of all who fuel an interest in tho
Tub Bulletin joins tho Patriot in its
endeavor to induce the general government
to appropriate a sum of money sufficient in
amount to defray tho cxpenso of building
a good gravel road from tho rivor direct to
the cemetery, And there are thousands of
people in this part of Illinois, and in the
adjoining states, who will also join their
yoiccs on the affirmative sido of this ques
tion. No ono,in fact, who knows the con
dition of tho road which must now bo
