for grand larceny by the Nashville grand
jury. Tho negro, whoso name was Virgil
Burnett, learned of the action, left tho city

Guy Holland. About a month ago Chief
MyerB received a dispatch from tho mar

arrested. List Sunduy tho chief espied
the negro on Ohio levee, arrested him and
notified tho Nashville officer who canio

At tho recent charter election in Spring

were entitled to hold until their successors
wore elected and qualified under tho gen

circuit court, and Thursday Judge Seano do
cided that tho candidates rcceiviugtho
highest number of votes at tho lato election
are entitled to bo declared elected nod to
hold tho offices until tho next regular elec
tion in 1883..
Tho Illinois legislature is locked over
tho Republican apportionment scheme
Republican members have absented them
selves in such numbers as to disable the
party, nnd tho Democrats are using this op
portunity to prevent the passago of tho
Republican bill. Iu view of tho fact that
tho bill purposed to be passed by tho Re
publicans is very unjust to the Democratic
party throughout tho state, in that it gives
that party, which cast forty-five per cent, of
the votes of tho state at the last presidential
election, only twenty-six per cent, of the
representation in tho state legislature--in
view of this attempted outrngo upon tho
people of tho state, tho Democrats ore do
ing the peoplo a'servico and are only do
ing their duty in preventing the passugo of
tho bill as long as they can.
It would booiu to bo in order to pros
ccutoto tho full extent of the law some of
tho negroes who are known to have been
guilty of tho crime of concealing cases of
small pox or varioloid within their
families or houses. Tho ordinances are ex
plicit on this point and their violation at
this time isdangcroU3 and should bo vigor
ously met. Tho negro woman on Twen
tieth street, who had nearly recovered
before she was known to have
the (liscaso may, liko tho woman found
with it on Thirteenth street yesterday, been
tho cause of circulating tho gorms of the
diseaso among a number of her ncro
friends or relatives, who in turn communi
cate them to others, both white and black.
The prosecution of ono or more of these
secret contagion circulators would proba
bly have a beneficial effect.
Several fine cowb belonging to different
citizens have of late disappeared, and as the
animals were in the habit of coming home
regularly and can now nowhero bo found,
tho impression has very naturally gained
ground that they were stolen and killed.
This impression is strengthened by tho fact
that thefts of this kind havo been ot fre
quent occurrence in the city and havo been
very nearly traced to tho perpetrators. Evi
dence is now in tho possession of tho offi
cers which points strongly at certain in
dividuals who, it is belived, havo for years
mado a systematic business of catching up,
killing and selling, in tho most expedi
tious manner, fine cows, without tho knowl
edge and against tho consent of tho owners
thereof. But their littlo gamo will prob
ably soon be up, and they will find them
selves in close quarters surrounded by
prison walls, etc.
Soveral uew cases of varioloid were
discovered yesterday afternoon. One on
Thirteenth street, one on Eleventh street
and one on Tenth street, all between Wash
ington avenuo and Walnut street. The
first named is a ncgress, living on the
north side of tho street, near the centre of
tho block. Sho had been in tho employ of
Mrs. D. Arter, on Tenth street, as cook ;
and when bIio was taken with tho disease,
she was too mindful of her pecuniary inter
ests and too careless of the lives of those
with whom she camo in daily contact to
notify any ono of her dangerous condition.
It was not until after sho hod communi
cated the deadly disease to Mrs. Arter and
her littlo eight year old grandchild, which
is living with her, that the truth was learn
ed. Sho is now confined to her homo and
made to conform to strict quarantine regu
lations. Mrs. Arter had but a very light
attack and has about recovered. Her littlo
grandchild is still confined but has also
but a mild form ot tho disease. Tho Ele
venth street case is a negro child, living
near the city jail. All premises havo been
placated and subjected to tho usual restric
tions, It is desiroablo that Cairo young men
should organize a baso-ball club; one
which can be a.credit to tho city and estab
lish a reputation for ability. There will
very likely boa number of clubs in tho city
before the season passes away, but they.will
bo composed mostly of juveniles
whose presence as clubs will
hardly bo known beyond thoir own circlo
and whoso knowledgo of tho "manly sport"
is barely sufficient for thoir own amu.susiont.
In former years Cairo had clubs which
could call out and entertain tho public, and
which were known and envied by a!l cur
neighboring towns. Sucli a club, composed
of young athletes who lovo tho sport and
would take pains to become perfect in it
and make a reputation in it, is what wo
want. Such a ouo should
be orgauizod at oucu in order
that it may bo up in practice with
tho clubs of our neighboring villages of
Charleston, Paducah, Anna and St. Louis.
The meeting which is to bo held at Mr.
Harry Walker's, Sunday afternoon will prob
ably result iu the organization of such a
ono. A club organized under tho auspices
of Mr. Walker a year ago was a good one,

lages uloro said.
Tho new National Guard Armory at
Seventeenth and Pino streets, Ht. Louis, is
now completed and will bo ready for tho
formal opening beginning May 8th. This
superb structure, tho largest and best of the
kind west of New York City, occupies, ft
space 200 x 109 feet, is three stories in
height, and is built in the most substantial
manner throughout, It will bo occupied
jointly by tho 1st and lid regiments of in
funtry, Company A, light cavalry, and Bat
tory A, artillery, the entire two lower
floors being used by these several branches
of .tho service. Tho upper floor is ouo
largo room or hall, 101 x 101 feet in area,
which will bo used fur regimental and ba-
tallion drills, or for public entertainments
when desired. A truss roof, CO, feet 'from
the floor, leaves this grand hall without a
pillar or obstruction to freo movement. It
is designed tomuku tho opening ceremonies
of a character. to correspond with tho build
ing. On tho evening of Monday, May 8th,
prominent ladies of St. Louis, to tho num
ber of over JlOO, will open tho festivities
with a grand military fete, entitled an

noon until Friday, May 12th inclusive. Sat

An exchange makes tho following
sensible remarks which are as applicable
here as in any other town and more so than
in msny others: "Thero is a class of per
sons in this world, by no means small,
whoso prominent peculiarity is whining.
They whino because they arc poor, or if
they arc rich they have no health to enjoy
their riches; they whine because they havo
no luck and others' prosperity exceeds
theirs; they whino because some friends
havo died and they aro living; they whino
because they have aches and pains because
they whino. . They whino no ono can tell
why. Now a word to those whining per
sons: First, stop whining it is no use
fretting, complaining, fault finding, and
whining. Why, you aro the most deluded
persons ever lived 1 Do you know that it
is a well settled principal of physiology
and common sense that theso habits aro
moro exhausting to nervouB vitality than
almost any other violation of physiological
law? And do you know that life is pre.tty
much as you make it? You can make it
bright and sunshiny, or you can make it
dark and shadowy. This life is mado only
to discipline us to fit us for a far higher
and purer state of being. Then stop whin
ing and fretting and go on your way re
ioicing." An Indiana mob has an expeditious
and effective method of rebuking courts
and juries. They do not hold peaceable,
orderly mass meetings in a public hall, and
make speeches and pass resolutions. That
method of expressing their feelings is en
tirely too tnme for them. Nor do they,
liko tho peoplo of Alexander county and
Ballard county, allow criminals to be ac
quitted in the face of evident guilt, with
out making some demonstration of dis
pleasure. At Orecnsburg, Ind., a few
nights ago, they hanged to a maplo treo
near the jail a man who had been acquitted
by a jury of complicity in an assassination,
but as a chance to try such cases. So
many guilty criuiiuals escape lately, that
there is a growing contempt for tho courts
in criminal cases, and tho failure of juries
to convict tho guilty is in large measure
responsible for tho prevalence of lynching.
Nor are juries altogether responsible. Tho
law affords criminals too many loop holes
for escape. The prisoner is given every
possible advantage,' and the prosecution
none. All this is dono on the just principle
that it is better. that ninety-nine guilty men
should escape than that ono innocent man
should be convicted, but the principle is
altogether too lax in its application! No
just rights or rules should bo abolished,
but some amendments ought to be made in
order that convictions of tho guilty can bo
easier and surer.
Thu Sparta Plaimlealcr says: "If new
narrow gaugo roads are Boon finished from
Toledo to St. Louis and from Cairo to tho
capital of Mexico, tho St. Louis & Cairo
will havo a grand opportunity to build it
Bclf up as an important liuk in tho railroad
system. But if it is as slow about making
use of its opportunities as it has been in
moving tho shops, it will bo left in tho
lurch and sink into insignificonco. Already
sonic dissatifaction has been manifested by
tho donors to tho shop fund because the
company is so slow in its movements. If
tho railroad company does.not begin work
soon, amovcrwill bo mado to withdraw tho
oiler from tho narrow gaugo and donato
tho fund to somo other enterprise." Ilayo
patience a littlo while longer, good Plain
dealer. Tho narrow gaugo railroad com
pany is a naturally slow moving con
cern, and being bo, it has lostjsevoral op
portunities to increase its wealth and extend
its business. Had it not been a slow mov
ing concern it would not havo allowed tho
water to interrupt its traffic with Cairo for
a mouth or more every year, thereby loos
ing ovor threo thousand dollars per week;
and it would not have been involved bo
long in difficulties with tho city council of
Cairo. And its failure to "move" promptly
iu theso things probably caused a failure
of the purposed connection between its road
and tho Texas narrow gouge for St. Louis,
which connection has recently been con
cluded with the Illinois Central railroad
company. But it is probable that tho
company has learned something from its
past experience and will be moio cuorpctic
now. Give tho company a chanco to re
cover from the.disastrous effects of its past
inactivity und bad management, then if it
doesn't come to terms with tho peoplo of
Sparta let loose upon it.
The present abnormally high price of

dinarily bitter weather of the winter of
1880-'81. These were chiefly the younger
animals, they being least able to bear and
survive the exposure, and the loss thus fell
among the very class of cattlo which come
into the stato in the fall. It is, reported
that $30 per head was paid about a month
ago jn Montana for two-year-olds to be
taken upon ranches where tho destruction
had been the most severe. Also a large
immigration of last year caused a much
larger demand for cattle to Btock new
farms, which was a further drain upon tho
available supply. 2 Tho scarcity ot corn
in many sections and its high price every
where, has prevented a great many cattle
from .being fed into killing condition.
Thero were thus fewer to market, and those
that were marketed cost more to fit them
for tho hands of tho butcher. The number
of animals that were kept waitiug for
grass feed was sufficiently lurgu to make a
declino in prices probably when they como
freely on tho market a few weeks hence.
3. From New Year's day to date our ro
ceipts of cattle aro larger thuu for tho cor
responding time iu 1881 ; but during tho
last threo or four weeks this is reversed,
and tho smaller supply is met by an in
creasing demand for export of animals and
meat. Fivo or 'six thousand animals now
leave our shores weekly for Europe Thero
is recently on increased demand to supply
tho manufacture of canned bctf. Two now
factories havo sprung up in Chicago during
the past few months. Tho growing demand
for canned meats is possibly connected with
