hold services at St. Peter's Episcopal church
next Tuosday night at, 7:45. Tho subject
will bo: 'Pop'ilsr objection to tho Episcopal

Tho republican state central committee,
which met at Chicago Saturday, decided
on the 33th of June as the day, and Spring
field as the place, for holding the Republi-j
can convention for nominating candidates
for tho several stato oifir.es to bo filled next
Cards, announcing tho marriage of Mr.
R. K. Woodward and Miss Musi Green,
to tako placo at the Methodist church in
this city, at 3 o'clock in tho afternoon
of Thursday tho 18th instant, wore
sent out yesterday. The announce
ment will create a ripple of pleas
ure in Cairo society because tho young
couple are and have been general favorites
in our social circles. The event will bo
looked forward to with much interest.
About tho weather for the remainder
ot this month Prof. Tico says: 14th to 18th,
cloudy and liability to very hoavy storms
about tho 17th; 18th to 20th, clear or fair;
31st to 24th, threatening weather, with bo-
vero storms about tho 23d; 25th and 20th,
clear or fair; 20th to 31st, clouding and
threatening weather, with very heavy
storms about 29 th, if so, then
30th and 31st will bo clear
and cool. Tho comparatively warmer
days will bo about tlio 10th, 23d and 20th
comparatively coojor days, the 18th and
2Cth. Auroras will probably occur on the
30th and 20th. Pereona contomplating
picnics or excursions may profit by these
prophesies and then again they may not.
On Friday the locomotivo engineers of
tho St. Louis and Cairo railroad, at East St.
Louis, becamo dissatisfied with the now
rules and regulations established by tho new
management of tho road and "struck."
News recicved from East St. Louis Sunday
says : "Tlio troublo between the Cairo and
and St. Louis (Narrow-gauge) Railroad
company and their locomotive engineers
has not yet been Buttled. Tho master mo
chanic, it is said, attempted yesterday morn
ing to take out an cngino and train, but was
prevented by tho engineers, who, it is aver
red, hurled rocks at him and compelled
him to couio down from tho engino and
ahondon his attempt. It is thought, how
cvor, that tho differences will bo satisfac
torily arranged by to-day."
raducah Nows of Saturday: "We
know yesterday that Mrs. John Austin, of
Metropolis, had poisoned herself, but did
not know whether purposely or by accident.
To-day we learn that tho poison was taken
with suicidal intent, and that tho lady died
yesterday morning. Tho victim of tho prob
ably rash act was much respected and well
known and was surrounded, seemingly, ry
every comfort and luxury that heart could
wish, having a splendid homo, spcndidly
furnished, and tier husband having an in
terest in several of tho most prosperous
business establishments of tho place, being
part owner of the J. C. Willis wharfboat,
the Empire flouring mills, somo other busi
ness establishments and having a largo farm
just out of the town. Tho causo of this
self-destruction, wo understand, was un
happy family relations of some kind. Mrs.
A. was known and likod by quito a num
ber of citizens of this placo, who will be
painoa to near or nor aoatu. especially in
such a manner."
McHsrs. C. C. Mason, Claude Winter
and Samuel Ilumm, tho subscription com
nnttco of tho joint fire companies' and
Mystic Krow's Fourth of July celebration
committee, wero out yesterday soliciting
subscriptions to partially defray tho cx
peuso of the grand celebration that U to bo
Tho committee mot with unprecedented
success In its efforts so far. Several bus
iness men who contributed very liberally
last year subscribed doublo that amount
this year. If tho committee moots with
like success cvory day for a woek tlio neces
sary amount will liavo boon colloctod and
ii At . . .
mo preparations lor the celebration can
bo commoncod and completed so much tho
lootior and with greater caro. There ia
reason to believe that tho companies and
Krow will exceed their former uudortak
iBs and that tho City of Cairo will bo
visited by a larger mass of strangers than
w cvor hero bolero. Nono but tho abort
sighted will deny that such a celebration
will result in much good to tho city gen
erally and to its business men in particu
lar. Tlio wiso amoug tho lattor will, there
fore, not hesitato to contribute- each ac
cording to his ability toward making the
celebration a brilliant and ponderous affair.
The Arkansaw gentleman, W. C.
Childers, by name, who came hore Satur
day in search of a maro and mule which
had been stolen from him, and who found
the mulo in possession of Mr. Michael
Glenn who had bought tho annimal, also
found the mare yesterday in Mound City
where she had been sold to a man also for
a hundred dollars cash. He got possession
of his animals and left for homo. The
buyers of tho animals are out one hundred
dollars each. Without intending to cast
any reflection upon Mr. Childers, it may
be suggested how easy it would bo for two
scheming scoundrels to conspire to swindle
innocent peoplo out of their money by
this method. Two men may purchaso a
mulo or two; one of them remains at home,
tho other takes the animals awav somo
distance, sells them for cash, skips out
with the money and informs his "pal" at
homo where the animals were sold. A day
or two after, tho "pal" comes along and re
takes tho mules without hindrance or ques
tion; and for all that can bo known this
programme may be repeated with tho samo
pair of mules ad infinitum. A mulo or
two sent all over the country in' this way
would enrich their conscienceless owners
in a very little whilo and would last a
long timo. But as stated, this is not to
reflect upon Mr. Childers, who, it is known,
ia an honorablo genteman, treasurer of
the county in which he lives. Deputy
Sheriff Guy Morse managed tho caso for
Mr. Childers, and succeeded admirably.

THE MAY QUEEN.
' The temperance peoplejelectod thoir May
Queen in tho person of Miss Katie Howard
at theirmceting at Reform hall last night.
The meeting was one of tho largest and
most exciting and interesting hold for a
ong time. But though it was all this, it
was also harmonious, that iB, the electioneer
ing was done in a good humored way and
tho result was accepted by all, tho defeated
candidates included, with manifestations of
satisfaction. Tho attendanco was very
largo of both old and young people, and tho
voting was general. Ten o'clock was the
hour Bet for cloning tho poll ; tho stato of tho
voto was read about every five minutos, and
with every reading tho excitement and
activity among tho several factious broke
out afresh. Several ingonious little, in
nocent little, but nono tho less tricky little,
expedients wero resorted to by somo of the
factions to throw others off tho track and, to
some extent; and for tho timo being, they
succeeded. But they woro soon matched
by others, and thus all managod to keep
nearly even until about the last second,
when some oho threw down a handful of
"pooled issues" for Miss Katie Howard,
which decided the election in her favor.
At tho closing of tho poll tho voto stood
as follows: Miss Katie Howard, 437; Miss
Jonnio Wright, 308: Miss Edith Martin,
305; scattering, 38.
, Martha Black and her daughtoi Anna,
who stole a quantity of silverware from
Tho Halliday somo timo ago wero tried,
found guilty, aud fined ten dollars and
Bouteucod to ten days in tho county jail.
Thomas Donnelly, u young white fellow,
a hardened professional criminal as was
proven by his own admissions, who, to
gothor with tho negro Black Hawk robbed
a young couutryman of forty dollars on
Railroad Btreet somo timo ago, was next
tried. His caso occupied all the afternoon.
Ho donlod having "robbed" tho country
man but said ho had only beaten tho man
by a confidence gamo. Tho boldness and
calmness with which tho fellow admitted
that ho was a professional crook, making his
living by traveling ovor tho country look
ing for men whom ho could swindlo out of
their money, and recited the particulars of
tho crime with which lin was charged, was
revolting" to men of ordinary Bonslbilltioa..
Tho csbo was givon to the jury about six
o'clock and a verdict giving tho prUonor
fivo years in tho penitentiary was brought
in soon after.
Tho following bonds wero declared for
feited: that of Jack Lally, charged with
conspiring to defraud tho city, hit 8'iBter
Mary, security; that of a negro boy named
Roso, charged with stealing a pool ball
from Mr. Joseph Steagala; and that of
Mary Dunning, chargod with an attompt to
poison her liusband at Beech Ridgo some
ONLY THREE CASES.
Although it is reported in tho streets of
the city, and oulsido of it, that Bmall-pox
exists in nearly every square, and that tho
disease is gaining rather than losing ground,
the fact remains that there aro but threo
cases in tho city outsido of tho city of hos
pital. These threo are a.nejrro child in tho
frame building, just abovo tho Hibernian
engino houso; a son of Mr. John Reese, and
a sou of Mr. W. T. Scott. There wero but
two new cases during all last week and
nono Sunduy and yesterday. Of tho threo
named none are serious, all aro very light
ami will bo well in a tew days.
Ia St. Mary's Infirmary there aro no
cases now, all having recovered; and in tho
city hospital thero are' about twelve, all
negroes, and all ot whom were doing well
It seems that certain persons, either from
malice or for sport, or from thoughtlessness
and a craving for the sensational, circulated
tho report that small-pox had broken out
in tho family of Mr. Harry Walker, and
that Mr. John Koehler, tho Eighth street
saloon-keeper, was also down with tho dis
ease. Both these gentleuftn aro much an
noyed at these rumors which aro entirely
without foundation in truth. There is no
sickness in the families of either of these
gendemen, tho daughter of tho latter, who
was afflicted with a mild caso ot varioloid,
having now recovered. Persons who aro in
tho habit of making mountains out of
mole hills, especially if tho mole hills aro
offensive and they may prove moun
tains injurious, should havo some
caro for their own if not for other's good;
for they aro liablo to punishment under the
ordinances aud the Iswb of tho stato for
circulating false reports injurious to others.
Tho river and harbor bill which has
been reported to tho house of representa
tives by tho commcrco committee, after
appropriating different amounts for a largo
number of smaller streams, and for specific
purposes on the Mississippi and Missouri
river, sets asido $4,123,000 to bo exponded
on the former river, from Cairo down, in
accordance with tho plaus of tho Missis
sippi river commission. In addition to
this it provides that $00,000 shall bo sim
ilarly expended from Cairo to the Illinois
river, and $200,000, from tho Illinois river
to the Dcs Moines rapids. It provides,
however, that no portion of this appropri
ation shall bo expended to repair or build
lovecs forthe sole ond' exclusive purpose
of reclaiming lauds or preventing injuries
to lands by overflows.
The bill authorizes the commission to
repair and build levees if in their iudg
ment it should bo dono as part of their
plan to afford ease and safety to tho navi
gation and commerce of tho river aud to
deepen tho channel. It provides that
whatever balance there may bo on hand
for whatever balance thero may bo on
hand for improvement of tho mouth of
Red river shall bo expended by tho secre
tary of war according to plans under super
vision of tho Mississippi river commis
sion. Tho authority granted the secretary of
war under the act of 1880, relating to
wrecks and sunken vessels is enlarged by
tho bill so he may sell or dispose of tho
sunken craft at his discretion beforo raising
and removal thereof. He is further author
ized to expend money appropriated by tho
act of March 3, 1870, in tlio construction
of harbor of refugo at Port Oxford. Pa
cific coaBt, if in his opinion it bo deemed
judicious to do so.
The aggregate amount appropriated by
tho bill for the improvement of river and
harbors, exclusive ot tho amount appro
priated for tho Mississippi and Missouri
rivers, ia'about $10,000,000.
