any such use this year. Tho great city

Ollicers Martin and Mahanny arrested

Martha and Anua Black, yesletday after

of silver ware from tho llalliday. They
hoye lived in this city about threo months,
coming hero from Butler county, pa, Tho
old woman aud the daughter ivero employ
ed for a short time in tho dining rouu of

their opportunities well. A Setivr.h warrant
w as sworn out yesterday by part ks for
other nrlic'yj which they wero thought
to have stolen.. The efliceiu named
took tho warrant and searched Clio prem
ises, which is on Third- street, between the
avenues, but found, instead of tho goods
they wore in search of, the silverwiro
named, each piece bearing tho stamp of
Tho Halay," and all being securely
packed away in an old trunk. Tho mother
aud (laugher, tho latter being about eight
een years of ago, were taken to the county
Jail, to bo examined to-rtay. Mr. L. P. Park
er, of thellalliday, missed the table ware at
tho time they disappeared from tho house,
but was uuablo to locato his suspicions.
It seems that tho spirit of indepen
dence and manliness exhibited recently by
tho colored voters of Springfield, in that
they nominated a city ticket of their own,
is contagcouj, for since then it has mani
fested itself at other poiu.s in
a similar mauner. Tho latest
awakening is in Jackson County,
where, as in Alexander county, the col.
ored voters havo for years been loyal sup
porters of a Republican ticket upon which
they had no representative, and elected men
to offlco whose professions of love for the
poor negro proved, after election, to havo
been "but a delusion and a snaro." The
awakeniug is signaled by the following note
from a prominent colored voter of the
county, najnud JohnlNix on, to tho Jackson
County Era, published at Murphjsboro,
last week: "I wish to announce my name
in your paper as a conservator for and in
behalf of the colored peoplo and tho re
publican party. I am now in tho field for
the purpose of asserting tho rights of tho
colored voters, and will bo until tho day of
election and every office filled. We do
m.ind, as colored voters of Jackson county,
and give duo notice to tho white republi
cans, that in all tlmso precincts that are
largely populated by colored voters we wunt
the fourth oflicc, we ask this ns a right and
should tho .whito republicans deny this
right, then we refuse to support them, and
will run an independent candidate of our
own at tho coming county election."
The work of gerrymandering tho state
of Illinois has now commenced in tho etate
legislature and the chief aim of the repub
licans is, of ours.', to form the dU;ricts so
as to give them more than their share of
representatives. Taking the vote of tho
two parties in this at tho lost presidci.tial
election as a guide, tho democrats would
be entitled to niao districts and tho repub
licans to eleven; but according to a plan
receutly submitted to tho legislature by
republican, tho democrats would receive
but five districts in the state. An especial
effort seems to bo made to redistrict Hon.
W. P. Morrison out of congress, by making
his district strongly republican. Of this
attempt tho Chicago Tribune 6nys: "If
the proposition is carried out the transfer
Bill Morrisou's county of Monroo into the
Cairo district for tho purpose of throwing
Morrison out of congress it will produce a
popular resentment which will most cer
tainly result in his election and tho loss of
the Cairo district to the republicans. Mak
ing this change would be as foolish a blun
der as that of the dog which dropped tho
chunk of juiry beefotike to grasp at its re
flection which he saw in the water. Mon
roe county in 1878 gave 1,00!) democratic
majority, and iu 1833 she gavo Morrison
900. Force her into Iho Cairo district for
the purpose ot slaughtering her fovori'e
William and she will roll up 1,800 to 2,000
for him." The Tribune is probibly right
and therefore it is only to ba hoped that
Monmo will bo "forced into the Cuiro dis
trict," for then tho old 18ih would roll up a
democratic majority for William such as
was never seen there before. Mr. M urison
seems to have anticipated this on the'part of
the republicans and will hoc mio a citizen
of and a representative from the Cairo dis
trict whether tho gerrymandering solons
will or no. .
Wednesday a well-dressed and toler
ably good looking woman came to The
llalliday and registered as Mrs, Fink, of
Littlft Rock. She was assigned quarters
and ftftw remaining a little while,, came
down to the olue uud inquired tho way
to tho express office. 'Sho was given tho
information nsked for, but Instead of going
to the express office went to tho post of
fice to inquire for mail. O.a her return sho
stopped at tho grocery and dry goods
house of Messrs, Smith B.os., and request
ed of tho young lady cashier to bo given
chango lor ten dollars. 1110 change was
counted out but was not satisfactory
Mrs, Fink wanted a one dollar bill to send
away by mail. The accommodating cash
ier complied with tho request and Mrs.
Fink grasped tho chango and hurried to.
ward tho door without paying any attention
to the voico of tho cashier to stop and
leave the ten dollar bill. One of the clerks
interrupted hor and sho came back, but as
sorted positively that Mho had given the
cashier tho bill. A thorough seurch was
made about tho entiro offico without pro
ducing tho bill, and Mrs. Fiuk was finally
compelled to hnnd over tho note. From
hero sho made her way down town nnd
landed in tho bakery of Mr. Frank
Kratky, on Commercial avenue,
below Sixth street. Mr. Kratky wns
behind tho counter, and sho asked him
to chango five dollars. If gavo her silver
which sho refused, saying that sho needed
paper money to send awny by mall. In or
der to get this Mr. Kalky had to go to his
room back of tho store and Mrs. Fink fol
lowed him in 'there. Hero, in tho presence
of Mrs. -Kratky, tho money was counted
out to her and bi beforo, at Messrs.
Smith Bro,, ( alio grasped It
" 31, 1SE2
and started out.; Mr. Kratky stopped her
an. I nsked her for the live dollar bill, but
sho positively insisted that sho hul given it
to him aud left without handing it over.
Mr. Kratky complained to Chief Myers,
who hunted until he found Mrs. Fink at
the llalliday. Ho found hor dressed in an
old calico wrapperj toothless and powder
less; accused tier of swindling and was at
first 'indignantly rebuked; but he per
sisted in Ids accusations, profecsed to
know her thoroughly and to bo able to
provo her guilty. Ho compelled her to
acchinpany hhu to Mr. Kmtky's. Mr.
Kratky recognized her iu spito of her
changed oppearance; tho chief requested
her to talk German to Mr. Kratky as the
had done when sho got tho change; nnd
sho complied with tho request; tho
chief also requested Mrs. Kratky
to examine tho woman's clothing,
and it was found that under tho old calico
wrappor she woro tho same black silk
dress which she had worn when sho re
ceived tho change. But in spite of all
these revelations tho woman wns Grin in
her protestations of innocence until the
chief grasped her by the arm and told her
to either pay over tho five dollar bill nnd
leave town in two hours, or go to jail and
stand trial. This weakened her; sho paid
over the money, and left town on yesterday
Murphysboro, a little village not far
north of here, is in imminentdangorof loos
ing the St. Louis and Ciiro, or Cairo and
St. Loul rr Amsterdam and Cairo, rail
road, commonly known as tho narrow
gaugo railroad, ond tho reason ot this
threatened calamity is, that the people of
that burg dared to demand fair play in the
matter of passenger rates from there to
East St. L uiu and way points. 'Uie exxt
character or the trouble is concisely stated
in tho following litttle item, taken from the
Murphysboro Independent of lust week:
"Tho St, Louis and Cairo railroad charges
83,03 fiom hero to Cohmbia and $2 05 t
Ea?t St. L mis. Ah Columbia is 18 miles
thi side of East St. Lou 8 wu snpposj the
diff-rencM in tho distance causes the differ
ence iu the fare.'' Assuming that'two dol
lars and ninety-fivo cents fropi Murphysbo
ro to Eist St. Loiis is the schedule rate,
then two dollars and fivo cents would bo
tho regular schedule rate from Murphyslxi
ro to Columbia, which is eighteen miles
nearer, and when tho railroad company
charges three dollars and ten cents it swin
dies evury pauungur who trtvels from
Murphysboro to Columbia out of ju3t
exactly ono dollar and five cents every
time he make-t the trip. Now, is this any
reason why tto good peoplo of Murphys
boro should be dissatisfied? One dollar
and fivo cents every time they goto Col
umbia! Why, that's a "mere bagatelle"!
what wuull the poor but honest and be
nighted psople of Murphysboro say if
they, like the ponplo cf Cairo and Alex
ander county, had been swindled by the
aforesaid corporation out of two hundred1
thousand dollars at 0110 whack! The good
poooloof Murphysboro havo been fortunate;
the railroad is treating them with great
leniency; it is allowing them the choice of
traveling and b-iug swindled or of not
traveling and not beiug swindled, and that
is a privilege the people of Cairo and Alex
ander county wero not allowo I. ' Tho peo
ple of Murphysboro should h ing their sim
ple heads in shame at their presumption
and, arrayed in Back-cloth and besprinkled
with ashes, should sing psalms of praise to
the company aforesaid for swindling them
on fcuch a small sealo n:id only by degrees,
and then giving them a choice hi the mat
ter brides. The utter silliness of thu in
digoation of the people of Murphysboro M
made more apparent when it is understood
that they deny the right of the company to
conduct its affairs upon strict biHlms
principles. If you enter a grocery store
and ask tho price of eggs, you are told
that they cost two and a half cents apieco
if you purchase two, but two cents if you
purchase half a dozen; if you buy a box
they will cost you about ono cetit each.
This is a universally practiced rule of bus
iness, ami who will say that it should not
be applied to tho sale of railroad distances
as weli ns. to eggs or other merchandise?
Why shouldn't tho railroad company afore
said bo allowed to etiarge a man three dol
lars and ten cents for ft Bixty mile ticket,
four dollars for a forty-five mile ticket,
ten dollars for a two mile ticket and send
him to tho penitentiary for wanting only
a one mito tickenl Why not?
It is true, a few months ago tho tuto board
of railroad and warohouso cormnibsioners
decided that threo cents por milo should
bo tho uniform passenger rato upon all
railroads in tho state, and that the railroad
company gavo notico to tho peoplo along
its lino that it had adopto I and would
adhere to this legal rate, nnd it is true that
a violation of this rule would lay tho rail
road company liablo to prosecution; but
what of that? Does tho violation of law
and plighted faith iu so trivial a matter
justify tho peoplo of Murphysboro iu bp
Burning tho attitude of complainants against
so august a concern ns the Amsterdam
milliotiaire piiuper syndicate! What would
tho simple people of Murphysboro say if
they,liki) tho pooplo of Ooiro, hid been
put to tho expenso of twenty-five or thirty
thousand dollars by ruMou of the failure
of tho company aforesaid to obey
tho requirements of obligations
