Itsuems that tho great wind storm
which prevailed hero during the early part
of this week, extended over considerable
territory, and did more or less damage at a
number of point. At Quincy fruit trees
and telegraph poles and wires wore blown
down; at Elgin fences, small bouses in the
city, and along the river the galo was parti
daily destructive. Tho largest Iioihc of the
Washington ieo company, of Chicago, on
tho cast side, was blown Hat to tho grouud.
It was one of the largest ia tho state, hold
iug 2'2,009 tons, but was empty at tho time.
Tho homes of tho Elgin ice company aud
one or two others were seriously damaged.

The Fourth stroet sewer was opened yes
terday afternoon at ono o'clock, tho river

About four o'clock tho Tenth street sower

through both of them. It is likely that
tho river will fall several feet more at this
point before tho late rise above reaches us,
and that when said a'iso reaches us, it will
bavo sufficiently wasted away to bavo but
little effect here certainly not enough to
necessitate thu closing of tiio sowers again.

IN SELF DEFENSE.
Jin inquest was held yesterday over the
remains of F. K. CliestermiiD, the river man
who died in consequence ot a shot fired at
him by officer Haz. Martin, ond whilo re
sisting arrest Tho jury in tho case was
composed of tho following gentlemen: .
Win. White, James S. Barclay, John Mc
Nulty, Samuel Burger, Louis C. Herbert
and T.N. Kimhrough.
After reviewing the remains at tho hos
pital tliu jury retired to tho county court
room to examine witnesses. Eight of thesa
were examined in the morning aud about
an equal number in the afternoon. The
testimony taken in tho morning was very
strongly in favor of tho officer
and was but slightly if
at all weakened bv that taken in the after
noon. It appeared plainly that tl e officers
were' justified in using their weapons
against both Hughes and Cheslerman, both
of whom resisted arrest nnd made attempts
to resort to violence. It was proven that
when Hughes was shot by Officer Mahanny,
ho was in the act of taking oil" his coat
preparatory to attacking tho officer; and
when Officer Martin discharged hia pistol
at Chcstormaii, tho latter, with open knife
ia hand, made n movement toward the
officer to attack him.
The jury decided that Chesterman enmo
to his death by a pistol shot, fired by Ofli
cir Haz. Martin in self defense.

THE S1PE WATER PROBLEM.
Tuo question of how to rid luo city ou"
tlrelv and nernmntlv of tho water which
f i "
B'yjes through tho ground under tho levees
and inconveniences our citizens mora or
less every two or threo years, has always
been ouo ol importance ond inlero.st to every
resident of the city, whether .property hoi
dor or not. It has been -dlscimed often,
nod by gentlemeu who could spoax learned
ly upon tiio cause and habits thereof; much
money h is beun expended in former ycM'9
by tho city government in carrying out
theories of wine, but witbeut satisfactory
results, and tho prevention or euro of tho
evil remains to be discover
ed nnd successfully carried out.
But tho attention given to this nutter by
interested parties, who watched closely
every experiment, every work which might
roveid tho character of tho city's found i
tiou and expluin tho reason why it permits
the water from the two livers to percolate
througu to the top and stand there us an a
piessed-botloiu basin for wueks.lns nyt bym
without profit. Little by liulo tho watch,
era learned I ho truth until all tho 'facts
concornin;; the character of tho soil under
the city, and'ltho suiirco of tho sipo water,
are well known.
The latest plan suggested (or preventing
the appearance of sipo water ia the city en
tirely ami permanently, isby Capl.
W. P.. Ilalliday and " is as
simple m it is cheap nnd reasonable.
The plan ia founded upon the facta thut
Cairo's sito was orginally a sand-bar,
formed in ridges upon a bed of silt which
was prexioiisly deposited by tho liver.
That this is trim has been demonstrated by
numerous drive-welis within tho city, and
by government borings outside. The sand
strata is found ft few feet below the surface
of tliogrou id and is from threo to nine feet
in thickness. Below the sand U a strata of
blue clay which is proof against water, and
below this is a layer of gravel and Band
from which the drivo-'vo'l water is obtain
ed. It is known that the sand strata below
tho surface doe not underlie
the cntiro city, but ia principally
conlhed to the upper part of tho
city, beginning whore the new levee
joins the old. Hen-, and for s m;s dis?iaeo
above thirf, the water could bo seen pouring
out of the irround in great streams and tho
sipe water iu this portion of tho city rose
much more rapidly than iu some others.
Furthermore, a well sun!; near Ninth street
before tho present sipo water came, to a
depth of twenty or thirty feet, remained
entirely dry. Cut if any further proof were
needed that .ho sand strata does nut un
derlie the whole city, reference can be bid
toun.vnd ini'lo by a government Wire at
the point iu ISTO, which khows no evidence
whatever of a sand stra'a near the surface.
Other pKxd.s such as cisterns, vaults and
wells iu diir.T'iit parts of the ci'y might bu
cited, ail of than proving that thu Band
strata W in ri ig.- only, aad tint t'w prin
cipal of them are in the upper poiti m of
tho city. It is further known taat the
loveus around tlm city were bruit directly
upon the sand strata where that a found,
the top I'tycT of g'lil beiiiL' scraped away
uutil the ?;;rid was reached. So that th sand
ridgtis, running under the lewto,
and connecting the interior of thoeitv with
the river outsidi-, serve ns so w.ny con
duetors through which the river water find
ready access into the tity limits and then
forces itself through thy surface 6il by
means of vaults, stump holes, trea roots,
crawfish hole, etc.
This is tl.o theory of. Captain
Ilalliday, b'.wrd upon knowledge
obtained from reliable sonrcec,
from clos(- observation, and from experience.
i piai maps giving a fill and very
minute record of tho various government
borings and soi;n ling nude in the vicinity
of Cairo, which bear hiro. out iu tbc theory
and any one who will take the tronble to
eX'imino them end to post himself with
regard to the experience of drive-well
Ijorers and ground workers gr-iierally, with
in Uie city, will agree with Captain Ilalli
day that bis theory is correct.
But now, having nscort lined tl.o manner
in which the sipo water in ikes its way
from the river into the city, the qunstion of
how this is to be prevented arisen. Hud
Capt. Ilalliday proposes the following veiy
simple plan :
Dig a trench six feet wide at the top and
three at iho bottom, reaching through tho
sand strata to tho water-proof blue clay
bottom, which will be altogether about oigh
teen feet deep. Let the soil and the sand
removed be kept separate, ami in refilling
the trenches, let the earth be placed and
firmly packed down first, to o, depth equal
to thut of the sand strata, then let the sand
bs u-od in lllling the trench to the top.
Thus the same material removed from the
trench can bo mod in refillieg It nnl by
merely exchanging it, bo made to entirely
exclude thu river or sipo water from the
sand ridges under tho city, and consequent
ly sipe water hi Cairo would bu an impos
sibility. More than this. The city's bot
tom, being then ontiroly froo from water,
would absorb all tho raiu that might fall
duriug the timo when tho eewers must be
closed because of high rivers, and the samo
strata, iictii.fr as a sort of .under ground
reservoir, would absorb all the water frern
above ami keep tho streets and bottom of
tho city iilwAVi well drained.
The cost of thus digging and . filling
trenches where it is now known that sand
ridges exist, would be a mere triflo in com
parison toother schemes triod and suggest
ed. Thoro would bo no hauling of earth nnd
(hero would bo no isequunt expense of
operating; but it would boa perfect, per
manent nnd costless alpo-watcr extermina
tor. From information now nt his com
maud, Captain Ilalliday thinks that not
over uitio thousand yards of trenching or
puddling will need to bo done, At twen
ty ceuta per yard (whhih. is a fair calcula
tion of its cost) this would amount to but
eighteen hundred dellars. But even if the
entire' Mississippi sldo of the city wer.o bo
treated it would amount to much less limn
it would tako to purchase tho boilers nod
cli"tuc to ruu lumps j and if thu cutlio
city wero surrounded with . such a trench
tho cost would not exceed fifteen thousand
dollars, which would uot bo a clrcumstanco
to tho cost of procuring and operating
This is a uecossirily incomplete state
ment of Captain Ilalliday'g theory of tlio
cause, and plan for tho prevention of, ipo
water in this city, and that it has the
merits of simplicity, cheapness nnd reason
ableness, three very iinpoituut qualifica
