DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN: FRIDAY MOUN1NG,
sanitary council, in session m this city
some weeks ago, that contagious diseases
aro introduced into this country from
foreign countries, and gives weight to their
demand that tho federal government, not
municipal and state government, should
boar tho expense, of preventing the intro
duction of such diseases into this coun
try. George W. Atkinson, of tho "London
Sporting Life" sent tho following dispatch
to Richard K. Fox of Now York: "Tug
Wilson will fight Sullivan if you will
match him, and ho will at once leave for
America on receiving answer. Geo. W.
Atkinson." Mr Fox replied: "I will
match Tug Wilson to fight John L. Sulli
van for i500 a side for tho championship
of tho world; send him overall once;
cable when and what steamer he leaves on;
have forwarded draft for expenses of the
journey." Wilson, otherwise known as
Joo Collins, is reputed to be the bust pu
gilist in England.
On the 17th inst., there will be a total

and to Teheran, where tho eclipse will be
seen to tho best advantage. Parts of south
ern Europo will bo favorable for partial
views. On May 28th, 1900, this- eclipse
will bo on again, its central line passing
from New Orleans to Norfork. This will
be the only total eclipse in the United
States in the remainder of this contury.
Itscentral line will bo sixty miles wide.

The polar region appears to be ex
tending south and bringing its inhabitants
with it. An unusual number of icebergs
have boon encountered in the path of travel
between New York and Liverpool in the
last three months, and mariners believe
that the ice berg limit is gradually extend
ing towards the south. The steamer Gla
morgan, which arrived at Boston from Liv
erpool Monday, coasted for 160 miles along
an ice Held and passed one hundred ice
bergs, on which were many seals and some
polar bears. According to the geologists,
the glacial cap which now covers the north
polar region once extended as far down as
the line of the great lakes, with injections
into the stales of Pennsylvania and Ohio.
Are wc to take these vagraut ice-floes and
mountains, inhabited by polar animals,
which aro so frequently found along the
ocean track, as a sign that the glacial
period is about to come round ajaiu?
The egg with the mysterious predic
tion and other ominous marks upon it has,
since the announcement in TiiK Bulletin
ot the appearance of such an one in Ballard
county, Ivy., becune a very multitudinous
article. The St. Joseph (Mo.) News has
learned that a hen in Savannah, in that
state, recently laid an egg on which ap
peared the gloomy words: "Trouble in ,
June." The lady who owns the hen has
been offered $25 for. the egg, though why
on earth any one should want to pay that
much just for proof that there's going to be
trouble iu June is something that we can
not understand. But there's no doubt
about the trouble that's coming in June to
some people. A day or two ago a Mrs.
Ashton, living down town somewhere, took
out ofu nest an egg laid by one of her hens,
which bore on the outer side of the shell
tho entire form of a lizztrd, almost as per
fectly as any artist could have drawn it
with nitric acid or anything else. The
lizzard's form extends more than Juilf way
aruund the egg length wise, and is bent in
tho form of the figure "0." Next!
''Old Jim," the only out and out Dem

Do has for years been living in a little
shanty on Fourteenth street, between Poplar
street and Commercial avenue, where he
1ms kept a sort of charity hospital ut times
for the aillicted of his own race. Because
of his Democratic propensities ho has suf
fered much pcrseeuttffcn ; he has been abused
by his neighbors, excommunicated
from public gatherings by his colored
brethren, and threatened by aunouymous
communications. But against all these he
maintained a firm stand in his convictions
of right, and puisued the even tenor of a
quiet, unsuspicious life. His Democracy
was his guardian angle, and hut for that he
would long ago havo been hurried
away from -the stage of use

so important a figure. His Democracy
will sustain him now in the hour of his af
fliction, and it will bring him forth from

- Two negro sharpers were iJetectod by
Officers Martin and Mahnnny yesterday
forenoon in an attempt to play a confidence
gaunt upon a country man from Kentucky.
They met their intended victim at
the Illinois Central passenger depot
and there engaged him in con
versation, during which they made
themselves very agreeable nud professed to
be going the baino way as he, down to Cot
tonwood Point. They succeeded in gain
ing his entire confidence and lead him up
the levon toward tho stone depot where a
bout was lying, which they intended to
board for down the river. On board the
boat they drew the cards and, when the
boat landed at the lower wharf where the
officers were waiting, the countryman had
offered to bet ten dollars that ho could
d is v the ta nked card. But tho officers
spoilt the game and broke up the party
by tnking tho two negroes under arrest.
They took their prisoners before Magis
trate Coinings, where they gave their names
as Haywood Simmons and Harvy Doty.
They were tined one hundred dollars and
costs eaeh and given a stay of ouo hour, of
which they availed themselves with alac
rity. The last named of the two rascals is
the same win some time ego wont through
the Chicago, St. Louis and New Orleans
train immediately after its arrival and
picked up a number of hats, umbrellas,
ulbters, etc.; but for which offense he wus
not prosecuted because the conductor of
the train reused to appear against him.
In viovof the fact that Cairo is s"on
to have the. champion b.ve ball club of this
pari irf the coun'.ry'a word of advice bear
ing on this sport is not out of place. Base
bail as a profession never before had such
fair prospects as at the present time. There
never before whs tueh an array of able
bodied ball-tossing talent in the field, and
never befoie such opportunity for these
nnucul.ar youths to earn an agreeable live
lihood if they will only behave themselves.
The only thing that can keep the game
from drawing is bad luaiiHeiii'-iit. Even
in New York, where the interest for yeurs
has been at the lowest ebb, a game between
the Metropolitans and Chicago last Saturday
drew an atli ndance of more- than 5,000.
People are perfectly willing that club and
players should make moii'.-y if th-y willunly

A circular hu been received at this
office stating that, as reports have been
extensively circulated and published that
Mrs. Jesse W. James was preparing or dic
tating a life of her husband and'his brother
Frank J. ones, she has made an affidavit be
fore a notary public in St. Louis in which
she e.iys : "Though I have frequently and
publicly declared that I know absolutely
nothing concerning any and all crimes
charged to the commission of my husbaud,
and that under no circumstances would I
lend my name to any publication descrip
tive of hi i career, yet I am again required
to re.as..rl nil that I have previously sail!,
and to also particularize the cause for this
repetition. A publi.-her of St. Louis,
named J. II. Chambers, lias had circulated
broadcast nn assertion tint he was having
prepared by a writer named Frank Triplott,
a book on the lives and career1 of Frank
and Jesse James, and that all the matter it
would contain would be furnished by me.
This statement is absolutely false, as I am

my dictation. During the entiro day I
was so beset by Chambers and reporters, I
was fairly distracted with a sick headache,

In his private letter to CI. Hamilton
concerning the proposition made to the
sub committee of live, President White
house says, "us the Wabash "company has
refused to join with the Si. Louis and Cairo
company in building the proposed embank
ment along the city's levee, therefore, by
the terms of the said proposition, tho latter
company should be allowed to enter the
city on tho new right of way without any
conditions." President Whitehouso has
been systematically careless iu his asser
tions upon matters of importance. Just
like Old Grandmother Argus, ho has
taken fur granted what he thought would
best suit his purpose for the time , being,
ami then boldly mady assertions ' without
regard to their tmthfulners. In this cuso
the truth is that the Wabash company hftH
not refused to join in the proposed woik,
but has tbu matter still under considera
tion, President WhitehoitMu also com
plains that the city council's and tho com
mittee's demands of tho St. Louis and
Cairo railroad company aro unfair because
the same demands are not made of the
Wabash company. It is evident that
President Whitehouso does not understand
tho situation. Ho seems to think that tho
caso o. tho Wabauh company is parallel to
that of the bit. Louis and Cairo company
which is not so. The Wabash company asks
no additional franchises, in granting which
tig; city could impose conditions. When
the Wabash company does ask permission
to cross tho city's levee in order to reach
the, right of way on the city's Mississippi
sitle, then conditions may and very likely
will be imposed and euforccd. When
this tine arrives it is to hi hopod,
and it is 6afo to expect, that tho city's
righteous demands will bo complied with
without any exhibitions of stubborn un
reason on the prt i f the company's offi
cials. Upon motion of Mr. C. O. Patier,
