Two saloons have opened up business
just outsido tho town limits of the town of
Sparta. The town of Sparta is a red-hot
temperance town, where the salo of liquor is
prohibited by act of the town board, and
the temperance people of the placo are ex
ceeding wroth at the audacity of the "two
newsaloon keepers," as tho Sparta Plain
dealer calls them. Oneof these saloon-keepers,
says thePlaindealer, "not only sells but
manufactures the vilest kinds of liquors.
A number of cities in this state have
increased tho amount of yearly saloon li
censes in order to raise more money for the
necessities of tho municipal government.
The idea seems to bo constantly spreading,
too. Chicago startod tho ball and a num
ber of smaller towns in southern and cen
tral Illinois took it up. Tho latest agita
tion of the matter is in Springfield, where
tho Journal urges the propriety of raising
the saloon licenso.in order to meet the ex
pense of improving streets etc.

Two house floated by the city in tho
Ohio river yesterday morning about nine
o'clock. But little more than tho roofs were
visible. They were small houses, not worth
above fifty dollars when new; but tears of
commiseration filled tho eyes of tender
hearted spectators on tho levee, at tho sad
thought that the best business and resi-
lenco portion of Paducak was boing thus
little by little carried down the remorseless
stream, leaving tho poor inhabitants .no
alternative but to got astride of a plank and
come to Cairo for refuge.
Mayor Harrison, of Chicago, issued an
order the other day that all gambling
houses should close Saturday night at 7
o'clock. Tho object of this was not to
trouble the gamblers, but to protect tho
wages of the working classes from tho keno
fiend and faro sharp. Promptly at tho hour
named last Saturday Light tho pulicc served
these notices and tho gamblers without ex
ception closed up. The thing worked like
charm, becauso the gamblers didn't re-
sint. The gamblers say they don t object,
They don't want the money of working-
men. They want customers with more fat
in them. Hereafter the rule will unenforced
every Saturday. Nothing 5s said about tho
lest of the week, but the inference is
tn at tne nouses arc not to uo moiestou as
long as they allow the good wiyes to havo

The Ohio river lias begun to fall I I Ac
cording to the report of surgeant W. II. Ray
it fell ono inch at this point during the tweu-
ty-four hours ending at 1 :11 yesterday after
noon and there has been a general fall near
ly all the way up from here. It is safe to
assume that it will henceforth continuo to
fall slowly until it roaches a reasonable
stage. The rapidity of its fal' will bo
somewhat lessened, of course, by the molt
ing of the snow along the banks in conse'
quence of a rising temperature, but this
will probably not furnish enough water to
check tho fall. But as the Ohio goes down
tho Mississippi, which has, until now, boon
very quiet, seems to bo coming up. Ac
cordiug to yesterday's 1:11 p. m. report It
rose six inches at St. Louis during the pre
ceeaing twenty-lour Lours. It is also on
the rise at some points above St. Louis.
Among the many other id'lo rumors
circulated in the city yesterday about the
Mississippi levee, was ono to the effect that
two men had been arrested by Chief Myen
for' attempting to cut a crovice through tho
Mississippi levoe, with the diabolical inten
tion of lotting the river into tho city. It is
needless to say that this story was an inven
tion without even tho somblanco of truth
for a foundation. Chief Myers made no
such arrests and there has been no such
hoinous attempt at destruction. Besides,
any two men who might undertake a job of
this kind would bo detected and shot dead
in their tracks long beforo they could hope
to accomplish their' vilo purpose; for it
would take two men not loss than half a
day's work with picks and shovels to dig a
ridge through tho entire breadth of the
levee to the water's edjc, asd there is not
an hour of the day or night that persons do
not travel about over the entire length of
Substitute Cairo for Springfield and
tho following item from the Springfield
Journal fits exactly: "For the past month
Springfield has experienced an unusually
dull condition of trade, By many this is
attributed to tho small-pox scare. This is,
no doubt, iu some measure accountable.
But other townB where no small-pox has
existed or supposed to exist, complain of
equally dull trade, now is this to be
reconciled then? The truth is, the bad
roads and the continued bad weather havo,
more than anything else, been responsible
for tho slack business. The fields havo
actually been so soft that farmers could
not get into them to hau$ut bay or grain,
and besides that, the roads have been im
passable. Hence they could market noth
ing, and havo had but little occasion to vis
it tho towns. Moreover, January is always
a dull month, and but little trade is cxpoct
ed. But if tho weather continues dry or
cold as brisk a February may be expected
as was ever njoyed by Springfield mer
chants." Rumors about the unsafcty of tho Mis
sissippi levee fall thick and fast every l ay
and every ope of tbani proves upon inves
tigation to bo entirely without foundation
in truth. Mayor . Thistlewood, Chief
Myers, Street Coniuissioner Gofman and
the entire police force are constantly on the
watch and are kept almost constantly busy
running down aud denying false rumors.
It is difficult to see any reason for any ap
prehension whatever, and persons who havo
nothing else to di but circulate such non
sense in tho city ith a view to alarming
people might be less eeutcuiptablo busi
ness. The truth is that the Mississippi levee
is just exactly a able to keep back tho Mis-1
sissippi river, as is the Ohio levee to keep
out the Ohio river, and, as beforo statod,
the Mississippi levee is over a foot higher
than the Ohio. Chief Myers wont
over the leveo Tuesday, and Mr. Gorman
visited it yestsrday and both report that it
is in excellent conditiou with no sign of
dangerous washing1 anywhere, from its be
ginning to its end. Perhaps what has lead
to some of the rumors is a small wash
about a hundred yards below tho point
where tho new levoe joins the old, but this
amounts to absolutely nothing at present
and is not likely to even if nothing is done
to prevent itjTor months to come. A
small quantity of earth has been removed
frojn near the centre of the levee by waves
blown Against it by tho wind, but this
placo has been closely watched by tho
authorities; it liss bonn visited every day
by somo citv official, and it has been found
that withiu the lust three days, or aince it
has begun to attract attention nt all, there
has been no noticeable increase in tho
abrasion. C'bhf Myers noticed particu
larly thetthe same earth at tho place where
tho washing issaidtohe in progioss, lay
inexactly tho same position at his last visit,
as it had lain when ho was there several
days b'efore. This ough to bo sufficient
to satisfy people that there is positively no
reason for fear that Ihn Mississippi levee
will even begin to bo damaged to any ex
tent whatever. If ther wore a current
near the hsvee, nud if tho washings com
plained of were iu ih- torm of cutting
at tho base of the leveo by an undorcurrent,
as was tiie case several years ago, then
there might bo some tittle cause for appre
hension; but this is not the case; there is
no current; tho water hicb touches tho
leveejis all back-watcv from the Ohio and ac
tually runs up stream, slowly, so that there
is no friction whatever against tho bank.
But evisn if there were a danger
ous wash even if the levee were being
carried away littlo by little nud
if permitted to continue unintcrforod with,
tho river would flood the city even then
thero would bo no cause for alarm, because
tho authorities are wide-awake; aro keep
ing men on tho levee all
night; are visiting it themselves
every day, and aro prepared upon a half
hour's notice, to havo half dozen car
loads of rock on their way to the danger
ous spot to stop any washing thai may
provo serious. Tho rock is here, idlo, an
the Cairo and St. Louis road runs right to
the placo supposed to bo threatened with
inundation. In viow of all these facts the
pooplo of Cairo can well alford to, laugh to
scorn any cronker who would 'make them
afraid by stories of dangurous washouts in
the Mississippi leveo.
-The removal of the United Btatos ma
rine surgeon's ofjco from the custom bouso
building, which has boon talked of within
the last few days, is something which it is
not likely will be dono, no matter what
pressure may bo brought to bear upon the
proper authorities; nor is it likely that any
pressure will be brought to bear upon the
proper authorities, for tho people of Cairo
are all well fortified against the disease,
the danger of taking which by those who
visit the post-offlco, is urged as a ground
for the removal of the marine surgeon's
oflice from the post-office building. Tho
people of Cairo have no fear, and they need
havo but little fear if they are properly
vaccinated; therefore they do notecase to
visit tho post-office for their mail and do
not clumor for tho removal of the marino
surgeon's office to somo lonely spot, remote
from the inhabited portion of tho city. -The
marino surgeon's office is not a thing
which may bo kicked about like an old hat
or a foot ball. The marino surgeon's office is
always an adjunct to the custom houso
whenever the custom houso and tho ma
rine hospital station exist in the same
place, and not only is this tho case in this
country, but also in Europe. The marino
surgeon's office is located in tho custom
houso by order of tho secretary of the
the United States treasury and its loca
tion can not bo changed except by order of
tho secretary or bv au act of congress.
Whether such an order or such an act
could be obtained in time to affect the de
sired change during tho prevalence of tho
present little. scare is doubtful, and it is
also doubtful if such an order or act could
be obtained at all. It is not reasonable to
suppose that tho government would go to
the extra expense of securing an office for
tho marine surgeon, when it has ono al
ready especially prepared in a building of
its own. In such small things tho govern
ment is characteristically miserly. But
suppose such an order or act were obtained,
suppose tho marino surgeon's office were
removed from tho post-office building,
would the danger to citizens, of contagcon
from persons afflicted with an infectious
disease, be thereby lessened? It is doubt
ful, to say tho least. Suppose that Dr.
Carter's wish were consulted in tho matter
of the removal, aud the office were remov
ed to Ohio levee somewhere, so that it
might be convenient to those nion for
whose benefit tho office exists, and tho re
sult would bo even worse than it is now.
Ohio levee is always the most populous
street in the city; it - is mostly frequented
by that portion of the people of Cairo who
are least careful of their personal wellfare
and by thoso who aro the most careful
the negroes and the merchants. It is most
always crowded and there is perhaps not
one in tho crowd who would not pass tho
marine surgeon's office a dozen times per
dav and comparatively few would not come
in contact, either directly or indirectly,
with men who sought the oflico for treat
ment. On tho other hand, suppose the ma
rino surgeon's offico is moved to an iso
lated snot some placo which citizens of
Cairo instinctively avoid suppose it were
removed to the marine hospital station or
to tho garrett of the pest-house, if you
please, and what would then be tho result?
Why, not a river man in tho country would
know where to find it, and if in need of
treatment for a coutagcous disease, would
wander about tho city for hours, making
inquries of people and communicating to
them the loathsome diseaso with which
he may bo alllicted. As it is, with the ma
rine surgeon's office in the custom houso,
where every river man who knows anything
of the marine hospital service, knows it is
by law located, there is less danger than
there would be if the office wero removed
to some isolated place. River men know
where the office is to be found and they
reach it with less trouble and perhaps loss
lability to come in contact with others
than were tho office in a placo other than
that which river men havo como to look
upon as tho proper place for it. The
IoiLETiNdocB not deny that tho marine
surgeon's oilicn is not a desirable adjunct
to the post-office and that because of its
being in tho post-office building tho dan
ger of taking smallpox at the post-office
is somewhat greater than it would bo if
the office were not in the building; but
Tns Bulletin fails to seo bow tho romoval
of the snrgeon's offico from tho building
to some other part of tho city would opper
ato iu any other way but to increaso the
danger to tho same extent in another di
rection, ami the only way in which this
cou'dbe avoided would be to removo from
tho city entirely both the surgeon's oflico
and the marine hospital stution.

A SEVERE FALL,
The little six-year old son of Sheriff John
Uodgos,Froddia, mot with a serious acci
dent at his homo on the evening of last
Tuesday, ne was enjoying .himself sliding
down the baluster leading from the
first to tho second story, and
it booms that just after starting down
be lost his hold and came in contact with
the head of tho post at the bottom with
such force, that ho was thrown violently
over backwards and struck the floor on his
back, There he lay, quito unconscious and
cold as if dead, until picked up by his
alarmed parents aud layed upon a bed.
Medical assistance was at once summoned
and after working with the little fellow for
fully half an hour the limbs assumed tho
color of lifo again and consciousness grad
ually returned. With tho return ot lifo
came vomiting, which continuedulmost in
cessantly tor some time. Captain Hodgo
and family watched over the littlo fellow
all Tuesday night, allowing him only inter
vals of sleep and administering proper med
iciuea according to instructions from the
physician, and yesterday morning he was
nearly all right again. Littlo Freddie had
. very narrow escape from death.
SHOT THROUGH THE HEAD.
A young whte map named Willis shot
and probably killed a ncgo man named
Stephens, near Mr. Thomas Porter's farm,
about a mile above the city, yesterday even,
ing about 4:30 o'clock. The ball, it is said,
entered tbo nugn's right eye, and passed
entirely through his head, but did not kill
him immediately. Whether death has, re
sulted at this writing, ten o'clock last night,
was not known in the city.
WiPis is a young fellow who has been for
som! time in the employ ef Mr. Lum
S'.yres, and since tho water abovs Cairo has
prevented people from entering tho city by
land, hehasbcearunn;ng a skiff between
the upper cud of tbo city and tho point
near Mr. Thomas Porter's farm. A short
time after Wl1 lis begun to run his ferry,
Stephens, tu ntgro, also started a ferry and
from the verv beginning of this com
petition a jealous rivalry hastxisted between
tho two men. Hard words wero had upon
several occasion?, it is said, in which one
denied the others' right to run the ferry and
each affirmed bis own, but there is no
knowledge of a physical conflict until last
evening, when another quarrel was had
which probably resulted in the death of the
After tha shootiug Willis fled and the
negro was taken to the bouso of Mr. Porter
to be cared for. Word was sent to the city
as soon si poeii'ule and Chief Myers and of
ficer. Mahanny and Martin, and Constable
Guy Morse, went in search of the
fugitive. They visited tlw house of
Mr. Lum Styt-r and learned
from some bf the men that
Wiiln bad been there but a short time be
fore. One of the men even admitted that
he knew which way the hootit went, butre
fused to give any infoirxiation that might
put ttie officers n rue right track. This
man might bt coos dred, to some sxtent,
an accessmr t ftp crime after the fact,
Mr. Sty res, himself, gave tbo officers per.
UHHuii'Q to make a thorough search of bis
premises, which they did, but without find-
ng anv tri of Willis. From there the
officers made s thorough a search of the
upper portion of city as possible, but
they could not do much, as it was rapidly
growing dark and they had no description
of the mau they wern trucking. Up to eleven
o'clock last mght they bad not succeeded in
capturing him; but Chief Myers and tho
office's will soou ruu bini down if he re
mains in the city.
POWERS OF THE STATE BOARD OF
The following resolution and corres
pondence, the former passed by the Btato
board of health, and the latter between
Attorney-General McCartney and Stato
Superintendent of Public Instruction J. P.
Slado, will perhaps do something toward
settling tho question as to whether or not
tho Btato board has assumed power which
by law it docs not possess in its endeavors
to enforco vaccination in the the schools
of tho state:
The resolutions wore adopted at a recent
meeting of the board and read as follows :
Resolved, That tho power of tho Stoto
board of health, under the law creatine
said board, to order the vaccination of all
public school children, is clear and un
questionable. The consequent duty of
boards ot school directors to seo that that
order is strictly unforced in thuir respective
districts, is equally clear, and the said order
of the board of health is their sufficient
warrant for so doing.
Should any board of directors refuso
er negelcct to carry out said order, they
may be proceeded against for neglect of
duty; and should any such board bo prose
cuted for enforcing said order, they may,
if necessary, employ counsel to defend them
in said suit, and pay said counsel out of
any school funds of thcii district not
otherwise specifically appropriated.
Tho protection of the publio health from
tho loatliBomo and deadly scourgo of
small-pox, is a paramount obligation, and
nothing can or should or will oxcuro school
boards or other, officers or persons concern
ed, from doing their wholo duty In tho
And koro in tho lottor, written by the
attornoy general to the stato superintendent
of publio instruction, in reply to the ques
tion if school directors have the power to
cxcludo from the public schools pupils
whose psrents refuse to have them vaccin

DbahBiii: In anaworto your question
as to tho authority of school directors to '
onforco the rule: of tho state board of
health in reference to vaccination, I have
tha honor to say that section 2 of tho act
creating the state board of health, declares
that "it shall be the duty of all police of
fleers, sheriffs, constables, and all othor
officers aud employes of the state to en
force such rules and regulations, so far as
the efficiency and succors of the board may
dopend upon thoir official co-operation."
These are tho words of the law, and it in
cludes school directors with all other of
ficers. In enforcing tho orders of the board
ot health, of course tho law will protect
thorn in using any necessary means to carry
out the orders, even to the extent, should it
become necessary, of excluding from the
school those who refuse to comply.
Very truly yours,
Jab. McCartney, Atty.-Genl.
