CAIRO BULLETIN: TUESDAY v MORNING. MAROll
Tho weather of the northwest, accord-
ing to yesterday afternoon's bulletin, was
not cold. Tho thormometer ranging from
thirty.eight to seventy-six above fero. Rains
were reported from Cairo, MemphU, Vicks
burg; Little Rock and Bhrevcport, south of
Cairo, and Chattanooga, Cincinnati, Nash
ville, Pittsburg, Louisville and St. Louis
north. The ruin was not heavy at either
of these places, tho heaviest being less than
half an inch.
A collision between two freight trains
took place on the Illinois Central railroad
at Mounds Junction Sunday morning. They
were both heavy trains and came together
with considerable force. Tho fireman ' on
the south bound engine was slightly bruis
ed, otherwise no one was hurt . That tho
wreck caused a delay of nine hours, to all
othcrjtrains may be taken os evidence that
much property was destroyed. An inves
tigation ot the cause ;of the collision will
probably result in the suspension or dis
missal of somo of the employes having
charge of the trains.
List Friday a daughter of Mr. Wm.
Lon-rgan accidentally fell into the sipo
water near Walnut and Eighteenth streets,
and would very likely have drowned but
for the presence of mind and prompt action
of Miss Etta .Foes. The water was not
deep, but it seems that in falling Miss
Lonergau's head came in contact with
some hard substance causing insensibility.
At any rate she was under the water and
made noefforttoget out audwhen MissFoss
let herself into the water and. drew her out
she was unconscious. She was taken home
and given medical attention, and was near
lyall right again yesterday.
A letter from Belmont, to the Charles
ton (Mo.) Courier, says: "The disastrous

region to get assistance to make crops.
There is no legal remedy whereby owners
of stock can be compelled to keep their
stock up until wo can make a crop. No
voluntory agreement, I take it, could bo
enforced. Then let us have an extra session

it will continue to approach until tho

within 80,000,000 miles of tho -earth and
will make a fine display early in June. It
will pass much nearer the sun than comets
generally do. It is not yet visible to tho

Forty-one feet four inches was what
tho Ohio river marked at this point at one
o'clock yesterday afternoon, which was a
decline during the previous twenty-four I
tours of ono inch. Tho fall at other points
during the same period of time was as
dlows: Chattanooga, two feet; Nash
ville, one foot three inches; Cincinnati,
three feet eight inches; Louisville, two feet
five inches. The total rise at Cincinnati,
acc6rding to tho signal reports here, was
about twenty feet, at Louisvillo about one
hundred and fifty miles below, it was but
eleven feet eight inches, having lost over
eight feet; by the time the full
force of the rise reaches Cairo
which is about four hundred miles further
down, it cannot possibly have much force
left, and Captain Sol Silver predicts that,
f it rises at all here, it will not-reach over
four inches. Ho is undoubtedly right and
can safely "gamble" on his conviction.
Some time during last week Mr.
Michael Powers, who keeps a saloon at the
corner of Tenth street and Washington
avenue, left the city apparently without
the knowledge of his family. A day or two
afterwards a man was killed on tho Illi
nois Central track who was a stranger to
all who saw him as Mr. Powers did not
return homo or give any evidence of his
whereabouts, his wife became very muoli
alarmed, and finally concluded that the
man killed was her husband. Although
men who had seen tho dead man, and who
knew Mr. Powers well, sought to couvinco
Mrs. Powers that tfio dead man was not
Mr. Powers, sho would not bo comforted
and persisted in her belief. But subse
quent developements have dispelled all
mystery ; several letters have been received
which give news of tho missing man. The
latest was received by Air. James Ross yes
terday morning. It is from a friend of hU
in Kaunas City, was written on Saturday'
and states that Messrs. Michael Powers and
P. M. Wrt't f Cuiro , arrived there, pre
sumably in search of tho James boys, on
Friday afternoon. Tho two gentlemen are
well aad happy, and are probably in search
of pleasure more than anything eUo.
Tho first of last week tho sub-commit
tee of llvo of the committeo of twcuty-flvo
of tho taxpayers tmooting ; in . ro
ply to a letter written to Mr. Mciiil, of tho
Wabash road, asking tha. gentloiriau
whether or not hid roud would loin with
the narrow guago m building an cmbiink
tnent along tho city's new Ljvop,. received a
reply nsklug for a map showing the location
andextentol the proposed embankment.
Tho map was prepared and forwarded by
tho committee on I rmay. According to
this uinp which was carefully prepared uu
der tho direction of tho sub-committee, the
embankment is to bo built cIobo either on tbe
outer or iuner sido of tho city's new levee.'
This is a slight deviation from tho propo
sitions first made. According to thoso
propositions the narrow guage railroad
company was to either built an embank
ment ten feet in width abutting
the outer slopo of the city's
levee, or to build a thirty foot wide em
bankment inside of said lovco, on its pres
ent right of way, which is somo distanco
away from tho levco this work to be done
jointly by the narrow guago and tho Wa
bash railroad companies. It was under
stood by toth tho sub-committee and tho
narrow guage railroad officials that iu case
the first proposition were carried out, tho
company could either lay its track on tho
top of this embankment, or use its right of
way iusido of tho city's levee, as it might
cluwse. This latter proposition was accept
ed by President Whitehead, on behalf of
tho narrow guago company with the proviso
that the Wabash company agree, "within
a brief time," to join with tho narrow guage
company in building tho embankment.
How, the change in the "plan" sent to Mr.
Merrell affects the first proposition, namely
the proposed thirty foot wide embankment
on the narrow guage company's present
right of way. According to this plan the
sub committee requires, that in case the
two companies decido to build the cm
bankment in- instead of outside of the
city's levee, it bo built, not upon the
narrow guage company's right of way as
at first proposed, but adjoining tho city's
levee, because, tho sub-committee believes,
this would give greater strength to said
levee. In view of the fact that C)l. Tay
lor has signified bis willingness to trans
fer the company's right of way from its
present location to that proposed by this
"pln," the changed arrangement is bene
ficial tobith tho city and tho company.
It is beneficial to tbe city iu so far as its ac
complishment would lend great additional
streugth to the city's levee; and it benefits
the company in so far as tho embankment
would then require but one slope and could
bo built at smaller cost. So far the decis
ions of the sub-committee havj been wise;
have reflected the will of the council and of
the people in mats meeting oseinMed, and
as before stated, if its terms arc accept
ed by the Narrow Guage company there is
a strong probability that the council wiil
remove all obstructions to tho railroads'
entrance into tho city, if not, why, then, of
The gentlemanly appearing and ba
liaving Indian to whom reference was
made in The Bulletin of Saturday as
Micka Mocka, or W. A. Ross, has coma to
grief and spoiled all the romance in tho
picture drawn of him in the press of this
part of the country. As stated before be
is a fluent talker and a sociable fellow; be
mado acquaintances rapidly and by Satur
day was known by sight and otherwise to a
number of our Commercial avenue mer
chants. He left the impression upon all
with whom he came in contact that he was
in good financial circumstances; that lie
owned a large stock ranch in
Texas and that ho was here partly
in order to meet his sister and
partly Inordcrtopurchaso'Jiorses and mules
to take back with birn as a speculation.
He offered one gentleman three hundred.
dollars per month to come to Texts with
him and keep books for him ou his stocK
ranclk, but tbe gentleman, in question 8U3
pecting something wrong in so extraordi
nary an offer, refused to accept the situa
tion. But it appears that he did all this
with a purpose as a preparation for some
deep scheme to tako advantago of the cou-
fidenco infu?d by his professions of wealth
and to swindle those who might trust him.
On Saturday afternoon he came to Mr. R.
Ilebsackcr, the Eighth street baker and
confectioner, and asked him for a largo
envelope. Mr.-IIebsacker told Mr. Micka
Mocka, or Mr. Ross, that he had
nono, but that probably Mr.
Bristol, next door, had. Ross went
to Mr. Bristol, got an envelope, came back
to Mr. Hebsucker and in his presence put
something into the envelope, marked tho
figures $2460 without punctuation on the
back of the envelope, then handed it to
Mr. Ilebsackcr and asked him to deposit it
in his safe. Mr. Ilebsackcr had no safe
and again referred Mr. Ross to Mr. Bristol,
Leaving tho envelope in Mr. Hebsacker's
hand and telling him to follow, Ross stir ted
again for Mr. Bristol's Btorc, and the latter
deposited tho envelopo in his safe in tho
presence of Rosa and Mr. Ilebsackcr. This
was Saturday evening. Sunday afternoon,
when ' Mr. Bristol's Btoro was closed as
usual, Ross camo to Mr. Ilebsackcr, told
him that ho needed money, but that he
couldn't get his own out of Mr.
Bristol sato becauso tho Btoro was
closed, and asked Mr. Ilebsackcr to
loan him six dollars until Monday morn
ing. Mr. H. had read flattering accounts
of Ross in the papers, which lead him to U
lieve favorably inclined toward him and ho
handed over tho money asked for without
nuy suspicion of wrong, firmly belicvingthat
it would bo returned ns toon
os Ross received his envelopo from
Mr. Bristol. But Monday morning cunio
and went without a sight of Robb or the
moin-y. Mr. II. called upon Mr. Bristol
and learned that Ross had
boon, thero and gotten his envelope;
ho then went to Mr. Stcngnla's snloon,
whore Ross had been sponding much ol his
tlmo.atid found him there. In tlio pret
ence of Mr. Stcngnla, ho asked UossXor
the money and was told that he (Ross) bad
left his money nt liis hotel, but would c
after it immediately and bring Mr. Ileb
sackcr his six dollars within half an hour.
Mr. Hebsackor returned to his store and
waited. An hour, two hours, three hours
passed, but Micka Mocka camo not, and it
was then that Mr. Hebsucker suspected
treachery.. He wont to Magistrate Com
ings and swore out a wurrant; an officer ar
rcstod Micka Mjcka at his "hotel," and
brought him before tho court; but Micka
Mocka would not be examined; he waived
au examination and was held to bail in the
sum of two hundred dolfars, to appear
beforo tho couuty court and
answer tho charge of obtaining
money under false pretences. Mick Mock
didn't have the change and ho was taken
to the county jail for s ife-kecping until the
county court takes Cognizance and disposes
Slowly but surely the spirit of enter
prise and activity which gave Cairo an en
viable name throughout this part of the
country during tho last two years, is re
covering from the shock received by the lata
threatened overflow and is 'again manifest-
inn itself iu a hundred different ways. Tho
confidence of our substantial citizens and
business men in the city's entire safety
from overflow; their firm belief that her
prosperity will steadily increase and make
Cairo all that nature and force of commer
cial circumstances intend her to be, namely,
a great metropolis, is not only unshaken,
but is strengthened by the fact that the
greatest floo i known to history passed us
by and left U4 unharmed. Cairo stands to
day a living and a prosperous example of
tho efficiency of the levee system
as a means of protection
against the Mississippi floods; she
offers the stiongest possiblo argument in
support of the plun of the Mistinippi river
commission for tho improvement of that
great stream, and also rebukes most point
edly thoso who have deligutcd to croak
sneeriugly about Iter liability to inunda
tion. Confidence at home will engender
confidence abroad, aud as proof that the
former exists in unimpaired vigor it needs
only be mentioned thut all our merchants
have received, or will soon receive, or are
even now east in order to purchase, their
unul largo stocks of goods for tho spring
and summer trtde; our stores arc doing a
healthy business; our s'reets are alive with
busy people; a new brick corn meal mill,
with a capacity of four hundred aud fifty
bar-els per day, has been established, prep
arations for several new brick residences
and additions to existing manufacturing
establishment, have been in progress
right in the face of tho great flood;
our manufacturing establishments, with the
exception of two or three are iu full blast;
our hotels are full day and night; our
wharves are daily thronged with water
crafts; our warehouses and elevators are
packed with grain, cotton and merchandise,
awaiting shipment to all points of the
compass; and our six rmiroau are one al
ter another repairing their damaged tracks
and are crowded with frieght and passen
ger traffic. When the water 'round aljout
u, in Missouri and Kentucky, where it
submerged and destroyed three of ourprin
cipal railroads,shall have gono down, and it
is steadily receding, there will bo employ
ment for a thousand or two of men to re-
pair the wrecked tracks and embankments
aod depots and telegraph lines and fences
and farm houses, and the people of the
flooded district, at least in this neighbor
hood, will snatch unprecedented prosperity
from this general destruction and distress.
Like every other town Cairo is alllicted
with a few chronic grumblers who improve
every opportunity to bewail their fate, who
paint tho present a dark gray and the fu
tore aj.it black and then move about tho
streets in a "melancholic" way, with long
faces and tearful eyes, sighing for s ine
ono who will lend a patient c ir to their
doleful tale and cxamino with interest
they gloomy old picture. But these
creatures are few and their wailings are be
ing effectually drowned by the hum of
business, tin jwhirrof machinery, tho clatter
of wagon wheels, the sound of the carpen
ter's hammer and tho mason's trowel, ai.d
by the music of happy voices everywhere.
The floods may comb and tho floods may
go, but Cairo stands secure; her only incon
venience is an occasional supply of sipe
water and this, as Capt. Holiday say?,
and as tho people have also unanimously
declared, shall and will bo exterminated
beforo another year rolls around. Tho
Capt. has unbounded confidence in tho effi
cacy ofhisplanto banishjtho city's oc
casional and only evil, aud is satisfied that
he can demonstrate this.to the satisfaction of
any reasonable mind. His plan deserves
the earnest attention of tho city council and
a thorough test.

Wamiixoton, March 24. The Missis
sippi river improvement bills wero reported
in bo;h branches of congress to-day by the
committees which lar that came. Tbe
substance of each bill has bceu published
in these dispatches. The differ chiefly in
that the senate bill appropriates $3,000,
000 for tho Mississippi, and $1,000,000, for
the M'ssouri, and contains a clause prohib
iting the building of levees merely for pro
tection of lands. The house bill appropri
ates $t,500,003 for the Missisippi alone, tha
whole amount to be mcd according to the
plans of the Mississippi rivor commission,
and $4,600,000 to be applied to improve
ments below the Ohio river. It is the in
tention of the respective committees to
push these bills as rapidly as possible. Tho
chance of getting tho house bill up for
consideration is rcmoto, "s the
commerce committee intends to cover the
needs of the Mississippi liver and harbor
bill and docs not caro to have hi own
work interrupted by another committee.
Whjen the senate bill Is tiken up Garland
intends to make au effort to substitue hie
fifteen million dollar levee bill or to track
it on as an amendment, tut it may be safely
predicted that be will signally fail.
. The outlook now indicates that whethir
the Mb&sisslppi nv.T gets will bo through
tho commerce committee, arid that a liberal
appropriation for tbe improvement of nav
igation under the pl tns and supervision of
the commission will be mado. It is now
very improbable that a direct appropriation
for building levers to protect lands will bo
voted this session, and all attempts in that
direction only prejudice the cause of river
