In the federal house of representa
tives Mr. Ford of Missouri, offered a bill
on Monday for the improvement of the
Mississippi, Missouri aud Ohio rivers, and
their tributaries. It authorizes the appoint
ment of a "Mississippi river commission,"
to consist of seven members, who shall de
vise the means and manner of improve
ment, aud directs the secretary of the
treasury to issue $75,000,000 in treasury
notes, to be expended by the commission as
follows: $50,000,000 for improvement of
the Mississippi river between Cairo and
the mouth of tho river, and $25,000,000
for tho improvement of the Mississippi
and Missouri rivers above Cairo and the
Ohio river between Cairo and Pittsburgh.
A special to the St. Paul (Minn.) Pio
neer Press, from Eau Claire, gives the par
ticulars of a terrible fire which destroyed
most of the business part of the west side.
It commenced Monday afternoon at three
o'clock in a small barn in the rear of
Minear'n store iu the Pioneer block. The
Bteamboat Minnio Hermann left a few mo
ments previous to tho discovery of the tire,
and it is supposed a ciuder from the
chimney caused the tire which resulted in
the total destruction of no leds than four
blocks, partly composing the business por
tion of the west sido of tho river, being
located directly in the heart of tho business
part of the city. Excitement is so intense
that it is an impossibility to get at ac
curate estimates of the losses, but it is safe
to say that tho total loss will not be less
than $250,000 to $270,000.
Horace Greeley wasn't very "cranky"
when he wrote: "If you want to keep a
town from thriving, don't erect any more
dwellings than you can conveniently oc
cupy yourself. If you should accidently
have an empty building, and any one
should went to rent it, ask three times the
valuo of it. Demand a Suylock price for
every foot of ground that God has given
you stewardship over. Turn a cold shoul
der to every mechanic and business man
who seeks to make a homo with you.
Look at every new coiner with a scowl.
Rundown the work of new workmen. Go
abroad for wares rather than seek to do
business in your midst. Fail to advertise,
or in any way to support a newspaper, so
that people abroad may not know whether
business is going on in your town or not.
Wrap yourself within yourself with a coat
oi impervious seiiisiiness. I litre is no
more effectual way to retard the growth of
a town than actiona like those enumerated."
In accordance with a decision arrived
at iu a conference held last Monday be
tween the street committee ot tho city
council and Mr. E. T. Jefferys, general su
perintendent Of the Illinois Central rail
road, Surveyor Holey aud Charles
Thrupp, were yesterday employed iu sur
vcying tho Ohio levee, with tho view to as
certaining how much filling would bo nec
essary to raise it to fifty-three feet, as rec
ommended by the joint committees and
the street committee at their meeting last
week. Mr. Holey acts for tho railroad
company, and Mr. Thrupp for tho city, 'No
definite agreement could well bo entered
into between Mr. Jelforys and the struct
committee without knowing how much
filling is necsssary, and after this has been
determined, another conference will be
held and the mutter finally settled. It is
likely that but little filling will havo to
done on Ohio levee, and it is safe to be
expect that tho Illinois Central railroad
company will do it. Tho survey is to be
exlended also over Cross leveo and over tho
Mississippi levuo to Hud how much filling
they will require in order to raise thum to
a height of fifty-live and fifty-four fuel ro
spectivoly. When this uhall have been
done a conference will bo had between tho
street committee and Col. Taylor, and ar
rangements made by which the reinaindu
of tho city's leyees shall.be raised am'

END OF A STRANGE ROMANCE.
Some time ago The Bulletin contained
a detailed account of tho arrest in the East
ern part of Teucssecof William T. Martin.
Martin escaped from the Lebanon, Mo., jail
where he was under sentence of death for
murder, through the instrumentality of the
jailors niece. They eloped and going to
Tennessee were married. While liviug in
that State Martin was arrested and taken
back to Missouri. A Springfield, Mo., spec
ial to the Globe Dumocraf tells the rcBt.
"On account of tho clamour of romance
surrouuding the affair, the detail of the es
cape an'd elopement of Wm. F. Martin with
tho Sheriffs niece from the Lebanon jail are
familiar to all readers of the Globe-Democrat.
When ho thus escaped he was under
sentence of death for the murder of Georgo
Miser, and his case wag pending in the
Supreme Court. The couple were captured
in icnncsscc, and Juart:n escaped again
while on the way form St. Louis to Lebanon.
A few mouths ago he was captured for the
third time at his father's house, ii Laclede
county. Some time since the supreme Court
reversed and remanded his case, and his
trial has been in progress thu past week at
Buffalo, Dallas county. Thursday night
the jury returned a verdict of not guilty,
and Martin walked forth a free man to
greet his wife and twin babies near lb-
The marriage of Miss Nannie Olmsted,

Clusters of flowers wero suspended lrom
each of the many arms of the elegant chan

which is internally the most beautiful in
the city, wus doubly so last night by reason
of these elaborate preparations.
Tho wedding ceremony was set for half

Beforo the hour for tho festive event ar-

much impatience was manifested. But tho
bridal party was on tiuio. Promptly
at 8 ;30 o'clock, tho vestibule doors wero

preceded by the groomsman, Mr. E. E
Ellis, and tho bridesmaid, Miss Phillis
Howard, were ushered in. Ttey were met
at the end of tho aisle by Rector F. P
Davenport, who conducted the beautifu
ceremony iu a solemn manner. The silence
in tho auditory was lutcuse, every eye being
riveted upon thu brido and groom, and all
tho answers to the rector's questions, which
were clearly and firmly spoken
could be distinctly heard in
all parts of tho Iioubo. A prayer
