A spirit of murder seems to havi
taken possession of the people of thuw
country. Every issuo of tho presa brings
intelligence of murders in every direction
in the quiet hamlet and in the crowded
city. And the criminals aro not limited
as to ago. It was only a couplo of weoka
ago that two littlo boys, aged respectively
6 and 8 years, got into a dispute in a littlo
towu in Missouri and tho older shot the
younger dead with a revolver, A few days
lator an old man of 78 years, a resident of
Maryland, murdered his wife and littlo
grand child; and now comes the intelli
gence that a boy of 12 named Graham
killed a schoolmate named Ilopkins at
Unionvillo, Iowa, with a base ball club.

Tho discussion of tho matter in dispute
between tho city council and the Cairo and
St. Louis railroad company grows more
general and more animatod among tho poo-
pie generally. There aro man viows ex

To-day is valentine's day, a day sacred

egand, was put to death at Rome undor
the Emperor Claudius. The custom of
sonding valentines on this day iB very an

as known, in the life of the saint, from
which it could have originated. There is,
however, a very old notion that "birds
choose their mates and couple on this day."
The day will be very generally observed, es
pecially by tho little ones, and as a result
the post-office clerks will have their hands

Cairo, in thJ matter of public-spirited
citizens, will compare favorably with any
other city in the country of its size and
population anything that adds to the
beauty of. our city, or to its prestige aboard
cannot be commended bo highly, hence
anything that we can say in regard to "Tho
Halliday," although it may be a repetition,
as a hotel and as an evidence of public
spirit in not misplaced. It u first-class in
every particular; is furnished with all the
modern conveniences, looking to the safety
and comfort of its guests, and last though
not least has a manager in tho person of
Mr. L. P. Parker, that just knows what he
is about and what the traveling public de

The Knights of tho Mystic Krew have
shown raro good sense in arranging with
the proprietor of The Halliday for the use
of the house for their grand masquerade
ball on Mardi Gras -evening. Those who
attond on that evening will never regret it,
and outside of the excellent accommoda
tions for such purposes that Tho Halliday
affords. The Krew are straining every
nerve to make the coming ball the grandest
and most magnificont that they have ever
given; and they havo given some good ones

Largo property holders in this city,
who are public spirited as well, may find
tho following from tho Chester Tribuno of
interest : "During the past few days a Mr.
C. Donkereley, of New York city, and Mr.
C. Tucker, of Appleton, Wis., have been in
Chester. These gentlemen are looking
about for a suitable place wherein to erect
a paper mill, epoko and stave factory, and
perhaps other manufacturing industries.
A representative of tho Tribune boing in
troduced to the gentlemen, learned that
they had been to several places, and would
visit other points, before determining de
finitely as to where they would locate.
Mr. Donkcrsley appcarod to take tho most
active interest in the matter, and Btatcd
that while they had visited many places
which possessed natural advantages for
their particular businesj, yet none exceed
Chester. He said that about 25 acres of
ground would bo sufficent upon which to
erect buildings suitable for a beginning for
the new industries, and about 100 men
would be employed. If tho business
should be remunerative it would bo from
timo to time enlarged, and more ! labor
would necessarily bo required. Ho does
not ask a bonus from tho citizens, but as
sistance, however, would not bo refused.
Mr. Donkersly said ho had cxaminod a
piece of land suitable for his purposes,
above this city, but when ho mado inquiry
as to its cost, it was held at too high a
figure. He thought pooplo stood gristly
in fault by plucing too high a valuo upon
their property when thero appeared to be a
demand for it, and when thoro was thought
to bo no demand it was distressingly low
This ono fact appeared to caUBO the gentle
men to abandon tho project, bo far as CheB
ter was concerned. Whon asked if they
would return, they stated that perhaps they
might, but probably would not."
, Tho Argus of last eyening contains an
article of over a column in length relative
to tho Cairo and St. Louis railroad company
and the difficulties in which it is involved,
with the city council. It says that tho road
was "a (Cairo enterprise;" that "tho road
proved a material benefit to this city;" that
"tho pooplo of Cairo prlzo the road highly
and want the road;" that "to lose tho road
would bo to loso, busldfs tbo bvnofits al
ready ennumeratcd, one of the great at
tractions the city affords to prospecting
manufoctureri." The-Argai t peaks ' the
words of wisdom and of truth. The littlo
i 4, 1882.
narrow gaugo road is a good thing to have;
the people of Cairo want it, and Tub Bul
letin wants it. It has been a good thing
in the past and it will bo a better thing in
the futuro, whon it once becomes per
manently settled. Even now, according to
tho testimony of one of our prominent citi
zens, who went over the road day boforo
yesterday, the road is doing a good busi
ness as far as it is allowed to do
business by high water, which proves
that, with good management and in good
running condition' it would yield a great
revenue to its owners and to the city of
Cairo But it has been in bad hands; its
obligations havo been abused, and it has
been involved in numerous law suits which
have retarded its prosperity. Its latest
escapade has been to Bwindle; by an
odroitly accomplished trick, the city
and county out of their two
hundred thousand dollars stock, together
with twenty per cent, interest on same.
But even this last little trick need not
stand in tho way of an equitable settlement
of the present right-of-way muddle, and
there is no doubt but that, if the company
will respond to the latest notice by tho city
clerk, to tho effect that tho city's committee
is ready to confer with it, an understanding
will bo arrived at within an hour.
Of a man named S. O. Buckner, who
is a general dead-beat and is now in Cairo,
thanks to tho authorities of the town of
PaducaT), the Enterprise of that city has
this to say : "Among the passengers for
Cairo on the Gus Fowler yesterday was one
who has figured conspicuously in polico
circles in Paducah, who has furnishod re
porters with a number of items, and who
has defrauded any number of the innocent
and unsuspecting denizens of this moral
burg. We refer to the irrepressible, incom
parable and unrivaled 'Colonel' Bucknor;
the man with the cheek of triple refined
brass and gall enough to supply a whole
army of the run of dead-boats. He pre
ferred liberty and Cairo to a berth in the
bastile, so ho went away. His choice be
tween jail and the Egyptian city wa9 a
hard one to make,' but by the counsel of
warm hearted friends (the police) he de
cided to flee his ills he knows not of rather
than those which his brief experience in our
county jail taught him existed there.
He gavo up his intention of suing the city
for damages for incarcerating him as a
"vag," no doubi deciding that the city,
with her kpowlcdgo of him, could make
out too good a case. His regrst at going
wa9, of course, great,but then a man cannot
control his own destiny, ond the "Colonel"
had no greater power than any other of the
human sojourners on this mundane sphere.
The community's loss by his going is small,
bo having already played his string, but he
will leave behind various mementoes in the
way of unpaid board and bar bills that will
keep his memory green in the minds of
many of our people. Despite the "Colo
nel's" cussednesB we can't help but admire
one or two things in his moral make up.
Ono of these, and tho principle one, is his
check, tho other tho stolid indifferenco
with which ho met the broadsides poured
into him by tho papers of tho city, they
seeming to have as littlo effect on him as so
many peas thrown against tho iron mantled
sides of a war ship. In bidding him adieu,
and consigning him to tho gentlo care of
the Cairoites, we do it with the hope that
his futuro days may be as free from care and
guile as those spent in the fair Plain City."
Tho Enterprise can not repress its joy over
the fact that the "Colonel" has gone from
raducah and is not ashamed to acknowl
edge that tbo authorities imposed him upon
tho people of Cairo. But it may bo
that the Enterprise's joy is premature, for
"Col." S. P. Buckner was spotted by the
officers here as soon as ho got from the boat
and on Saturday Chief Myers and Officer
Martin arrested Col. Buckner, jailed him,
took him to Magistrate Comings yesterday,
had linn fined fifty dollars and costs, and
given him a Btay of twelve hours in which
to leavo the city. And tho Chief means to
enforce tho order, toov Tho "Col."
will not be permitted to impose
his presenco upon the people of this
city as long as ho did upon those of Padu
cah, aad it ia very likely that, boforo he has
had an opportunity to becomo acquainted
with his new love, he will return to his old
love, Paducah. ,
Mr. Len Faxon, editor of tho Paducah
News, was in tho city Sunday, looking
around. His impressions of Cairo, which
wero necessarily somewhat watered, will
probably bo vontilatod in his paper during

NOT TRUE. ; ,
The Argus of yesterday evening says:
"Several months since the railroad com
pany petitioned the council for the privi- "
lege of coming into the city by its now
route. The petition was referred to a com
mittee, which committee has not yet re
ported on it and gives no promise of re
porting, but in the meantime has instigated
the getting out of an injunction to prevent
the road from covering the
short gap that breaks its right of way, with
rails for its rolling stock. Death and taxes ,
are certain, but from indications so far
theft is no certainty that the committee
which has the narrow gauge petition in
hand will ever report; in fact, the long
period that has elapsed since the petition
was referred to it, is a strong indication
that it never intends to; and this is tho rea-'
son why Alderman Patior, at the last meet
ing of tho council, mado a strenuous effort
to havo another committee appointed. In
the meantime, .the injunction goes to the
appellate or supreme court on apyeal, and
the end is not visible."
.The Argus is mistaken. The petition of
the railroad company was referred
to the finance committee at the
meeting of tho city council held on'
September Gth, 1881, and on the 21st of the
Bame month, at a special meeting, called
for the purpose of passing resolutions ot
respect for . President Garfield, who had
just t died, 9 and general business, the fol
lowing report was submitted and acceptod,
as is apparent from the official proceedings
published in The Bulletin a few days
Ordmancecommittee submitted the fol
lowing report on petition of Cairo and St.
Louis R. R.'reforred to them September Oth.
To the city council:
Your ordinance committee respectfully'
reports and recommends on the petition of
Cairo and St. Louis R. R. that, under ex
isting circumstances, it is not advisable, or
to the interest of the city, to grant said pe
tition. In view of probable future consideration
of tho subject matter, your committee
would also recommoud that it be referred
to be finance committee and ordinance
committee jointly, with instructions to take
such action as will fully protect the interests
of the city.
t Jons Wood,
Thos. W. Halltdat,
Caibo, 111, Sept. 21, 1881.
Alderman Blake moved that report of
committee be received and recommendation
concurred in. Motion carried.
The joint committee to which the whole
matter was hereby referred, was not expect
ed to report a second time upon the petition
but was instructed to act and it did act.
It took the only step it could take to
prevent the company from unconditionally
appropriating the city's property, untili a
conference was had to come to some agree
ment as to the conditions. It taok steps to
receive a conference but the company has
failed to respond and it seems, docs not in
tend to respond.
