leased. lie has managed to raise enough
money, or his friends have for him, to pay
for tho barrel of flour ho stole; but the
amount ot the tine is still to be forthcom
ing, and there seems to be a poor prospect
that it will. His congregation is somewhat
scattered, and is composed chiefly of poor
washer-women, who are out of employment
and starving since tho people of Cuiro
have quit having their linen washed,
and since tho government has been
issuing rations at least so they say,', and
they anathauiitiso tho commissioners be
cause they don't issue thorn .all they ask
for. Thus it appears that tho R-iv. Jacob
is dependent entirely on his white friends
to raise the money for his release. Wheth

they do pay his way out this time, Jucob

A negro named Samuel Anderson,
living up in this county some distance,
came to town Wednesday armed with a
petition signed by flio heads of one hun
dred und seventy-live uegro families, repre
senting about eight hundred and twenty-
five porsons. Tho petition was addressed
to-the county authorities and set forth that
the undersigned and all their dependants
were in neeiof rations; that they had been
in need for some weeks and had not been
sufficiently supplied, nnd that they wero of
the opinion that "de rich folks was a
try in to starve tfie po' folks to deff," or
word to that effect. Sninuol Anderson
called ou Mayor Thistlewooii and prcH'iitcd
his petitions lying that the signers aud their
families were all industrious, worthy peo
ple, but were "all starvin and couldn't get
nothin' to cat." The petition was taken
under advisement and relief was furnished
in accordance with the demands. While
it is true that there is some suffering
among the negroes of the city und county,
who, ns a rule, aro very improvident, al
ways managing to regulate their expendi
tures so that they may strike a balance
with their income every night, yt t it is
not nt all likely that it is near as great as
somo of the applicnnts would 'iavo
us believe. In' fact it is known that, in
ninny casus, they aro not lit objects for
chaiity of uny -kind. But there is sumo
difficulty in separating Ihu worthy I'min
the unworthy, nnd administering relief
tuly.to t!ie fjiui r; nothing short 0f u lUim,r.
mis investigating committee for each pre
cinct in tho county could do this. It fol
lows therefore, that somo who are not c n
titled to rations receive them every day
in spito ot tho efforts of Dr. Wood and
County Commissioners Saup and llalliday
to prevent it, Tho efforts of tho commis
sioners to avoid issuing rations to un
worthy objects is subjecting them to some
very uncomplimentary criticisms from
the disappointed applicants. In
Pulaski county it is different.
There rations are regularly . issued to
negroes who aro known by thu fcomtiiis
sioners to bo not entitled to thorn. Ono
negro who lives on a hill, several miles
from thu river, has a large farm and is in
good circumstances, recently called on
Commissioner Wilson at Mound City and
received rations for thirteen people, all of
his own family and uear relations. This
man was known to Commissioner Wilson
to bo in lazy circumstances and to be not
t-utitled to government rations, because he
was not a sufLrer by tho flood. This
man's brother-in-law, also known by the
commissioners to bo well circumstanced
and who had probably not seen tho Ohio
river for a year, was likewise furnished
with rations for a large family. These
incidents might bo . multiplied
indefinitely in Pulaski county;
they prove beyond u doubt that in that
county tho government is being used as a
cat's paw to furtner the politicial interests
ot a few republican Joffice seekers.

A passenger's story.
Miss Ionia M itsin, of Ilawsvillc, Ky
one of the three lady passengers saved, in
an int'tfview tells the following touchfyg
story of her ixperiencc of tho disaster:
She was going from New Orleans to her
home, Ilawsvillc, in company with her
mother, Mrs. II. M. Pcrcival, and her
nephew. Win. McKinlcy, a lad of 15 years.
There had ben a merry party in the cabin,
and she ari l her mother retired after 11
o'clock. Somo time after they had fallen
asleep, she could not tell how Ion,', tin y
were awakoned by .McKmley w h rushed
into the state-room and said : "The boat is
on fire!" -She and her mother got up with
out waiting to dress themselves, and went
out into the cabin, which was full of smoke.
They - walked hurriedly forward, her
mother a little behind. On arriving at the
front guard of the boat she sav that In r
mother was not with them ami attempted
to run back after hi r, but was prevented by
Mdvinley, who said that it would be her
own destruction. The cibin was then a
mass of 11 line and smoke. "Oh, I tlmu'.'ht
sin; was with us," moaned tho -girl tossing
wildly on the couch where she lay. "I
wanted togooack to her, but he wouldn't
let me." The accent of ufter de-pnir and
remorse that marked thj words would have
touched the hardest heart. Becoming
more composed she said her nephew pulled
her out on the guards and lowend her
down to Mr. Charies R ss, Jr., u passenger
standing on a coal barge who nceived her
in his arms and U k her ashore.
Wash Smith, the colored captain of t!ip

pie, and that within a year tho 7 per cent,
fund derived front the Illinois Central rail
road would be morn than sufficient to pay
all tho running expenses of tho state gov
ernment. The enormous levy of 1881 shows
that, thu Governor hat broken faith . with
the people after securing their votes, and
that instead of taxes being reduced, as lie
promised, they aro higher than at any
time during the past tun years.
The amount which will bo raised by di
rect taxation this year is five million, eight
hundred and fifty thousand dollars not
counting thu seven per cent, incomoon the
gross earning of thu Illinois Central rail
road, which will increate thivvasj Mini from
nnu to two millions more. In other words,
tho amount whicli will go into the state
treasury, including taxes and seven per
cent, lad.oad fund, will hot Ml much short
of eight millions of dollars. And this, too,
gentle reader, when the state is sup
poed to be entirely out of debt, if 1,0
uromises of Gov. Cullom sre to bo relied
upon. Just think of if, tax-payers! Snch
figures aro startliug, and show that a bur
den has been placed upon tho tsx-payers
of Illinois by those in authority. Tho levy
of 41 cents on the $100 will produce $5,-
830,000 certainly a vast sum to be raised
in these times. Suppose this enormous
sum of money was in silver dollars,
it would require one hundred and fifteen
two horsu Wngon loads each weighing
about thirty thousand pounds to haul it id
Springfield and dump it at the state capital.
It wouid make a train of wagons loaded
with silver nearly one mile in length, and
if the silver dollars were stacked up in
Springfield they wuiild make a mountain
of silver larger than the Illinois state house.
That amount of silver would be sufficient
to make a fence fifteen inches deep and
i fifty feet high around the entire town ot
