The members of the ladies' land
league in Cleveland are disposed to revolt
against Bishop O.lmoiir's proclamation ex

that organization in his diocese. They
have made a response to his pastoral letter
in which they say : "We have done noth
ing against the church as Irishwomen.
Wo have organized a society to aid Irelaud.
If that be hersey, then we are heretics."
The little son of Mr. Richard Jones,
who was thrown from a wagon and badly
injured Wednesday morning, was getting
along nicely yesterday. After having been
thrown from the wagou, thu wheels passed
over both his legs, bruising them somewhat
and causing a swelling; but yesterday he
experienced no pains lroin this source. His
arm is healing rapidly.
Tho sheriff of Johnson county brought
two women to this city for confinement in
the Alexander county jail Wednesday. Tho
women are mother and daughter, and are
charged with murdering a little child that
was found dead near their premises some

violence, and the younger of the two wom

The pope has introduced a novel practice
in diplomacy. Hitherto the selection of
diplomatists to represent the Vatican has
been confined to the pupils of the Noble
Ecclesiastical academy at Rome, but ho
has now decided that any young ecclesias
tics who manifest the requisite qualifica
tions for a diplomatic career may be sent
to tho Nuncios residing at the different
courts to be educated in diplomacy. Un
fortunately the number is not likely to bo
very large, as it is stipulated that tho young
priests will have to defray their own ex
penses. A warrant was sworn out yesterday by
Mr. C. A. Heath for tho arrest of young
Wm. Kendall. The warrant sets forth that
the said Kendall obtained money from said
Heath upon an order on thu circuit clerk
for jury fees for whichthe said Kendall had
previously given order to some ono else.
The amount involved is four or five dollars.
Up to last evening the officer in whose
hands tho warrant had been given had not
been able to find tho said Kendall, and it
was supposed that tho young man had left
the city for parts then unknown.
-In a statement of stock raising by
Mrs. F. Hano, published in The Bulletin
some days ago, several errors occurred
which thu lady puiuts out in u recent letter
to Sheriff Hodges. The pilncipsl error was
to the effect that she had "a black repub
lican man called Eg. Smith. Mrs. Hano
says her husband is a white man and a
good democrat. The Bulletin begs Mrs.
llano's pardon. The passage should have
read: "I have a black republican ram
called Eg. Ku-itli." The Bulletin hopes
that, having made the amende liouorable,
Mrs. Hano will withdraw her unkind
criticism of tho editor.
In counting up the delegates so far in

George W. Smith. But tills error does not
affect tho result materially. While it
reduces the number of delegates now in
structed for Captain Thomas from ninety-
one to sixty-nine, the fact remains 5 that,
with Alexander's and Tulaski'i twenty-
eight delegates, Cuptain Thomas will havo
ninety-seven votes on tho first ballot, which
would give hliu eleven mure than will be
necessary to nominate.
Wednesday morning Mr. Henry Brel
han's delivery team was driven into tho
Ohio river, near where tho transfer wharf
boat formerly lay, for the purpose of water
ing tho horses, and it seems that the horses
got in too far, or there was an invisible
obstruction which caused them to stumble.
At any rate the wagon was turned complete
ly over, the driver was pitched headlong
into deep water, and it was only by the
prompt assistance of bystanders that ho and
the team were Haved from drowning. f

in this city at least during the, ensuing

Anna Fanner: "While St. Louis is
overstocked with peaches from the south.
Now Orleans is paying $ 10 per bushel for
them. The idea that bigger prices are
realized by shipping north is not always
founded on fact. If Mississippi, Arkansas
and Southern Illinois growers would put a
little more of their fruit into the New Or
leans ami other southern markets iustoad of
sending it all to northern ci'.ies, it would
bo better for all concerned, and greatly so
for the Southern Illinois producers who
often riud their prices of fruit broken down
by the previous arrival of damaged fruit
from the south."
Mrs. Scoville, sister of Guitcau, has
given to tho press for publication u copy of
a petition addressed to President Hayes,
asking for a stay of execution in the case
of Charles J. Guiteuu until a commission of
competent physicians, acknowledged by the
fraternity to be above adverse criticism,
shall be appointed and shall examine into
the question of hi insanity. The follow
ing note is addressed to the public: "As
there is not sufficient timo to make a can

to the many who fully indorse it, I ask
every one who is in favor of the petition to

The English papers are beginning to
wage war upon overhead telegraph wire?,
although there are no masts in the streets
as it is with us, the wires running along the
housetops and only being objectiocable
when they cross tho streets. The tele
phone system also is only in its infancy in
London, nor is there that competition in
telegraphing which wo have. The papers
demand that underground wires shall be
made thu rule in tho city itself as in Paris
and Berlin. In Vienna the wires, both
telegraph and telephone, are carried on
brackets along tho'tronts of tho houses.
It Is proposed that a subway ho constructed
under the curbstone of the sidewalks along

The remains ol Mr. Charles Bell, son
of Mr. James Bell, of Cubden, passed
through here yesterday, enroute from Little
Rock for home to he interred. Charley was
for some time clerk in the Box ami Basket
factory in this city, and weut from here to
Little Rock to engage in business for him
self. He was doing a prosperous business,
when he was taken down with typhoid fev
er and died Wednesday. His remains
were accompanied here from Poplar Bluff
by Mr. Frank Metcalf and others. The
coffin, as it was conveyed to the train yes
terday afternoon, was profusely and beauti
fully decorated with flowers and cvergrcenH.
His death will be much regretted by his
friends here, who were many.
Mr. Iloofstitler again entertained a
large audience at Reform hall most hand
somely last night. He tpoko of his own,
and of the lives of other men who had
been addicted to habitual excessive indul
gence in strong drink. Ho related inci
dents from his life and the lives of others,
some of which were in themselves pathetic
ami humorous, and his manner of relating
them made them doubly so. He is a very
blunt, sometimes mildly vulgar, yet gen
erally a very agreeable speaker who holds
the attention of his audience from tho be
ginning to tho end of his speoch. Last
night'H meeting was more enthusiastic than
thu one before, and would probably have
been inoro so and larger had the hall been
less oppressive. To-night and to morrow
night the meetings will bu hold at the
A meeting of thu republican county
central committee of Alexander county was
held in this city Tuesday night and arrange
ments woro made for holding primaries to
select delegates lo tho delegates convention
which shall iu turn select ami instruct del
egates to tho senatorial and congressional
conventions. The primaries are to bo hold
in each of tho ten procincts of th0 county
on the 17th instant and thedelegato conven
tion is to be held on tho 22d instant. The
ratio of representation in tho latter conven
tion will be one delegate for every twonty
five totes cast for Garfield in 1880. This
will give Cairo city thirty-eight and the
county outside twenty-eight delegates,
making a total 01 sixty-six.
Tho city council met in adjourned rog
ular meeting last night. In tho absence
of Clerk Foley, Alderman T. W. Halliday
performed the duties of that officer. The
business was principally routine, chief
among which was tho concurrence of tho
council in tho recommendation of the street
committee, that the mayor appoint a com
mittee ot (ivo citizens and fivo councilmon,
whoso duty it shall bo to inquire into tho
merits of thu several plans offered for cur
ing the water evil within our levees. The
mayor will appoint such committee upon
his return from Chicago. Several ordi
nances, among them ono to establish and
niaiutan a public library, were, upon mo
tion of Alderman Blako, read the first time.
The bid of Major E. W. Halliday, for fur
niahing sower pipe, was accepted. Among
tho resolutions offered was 0110 by Alder
man Patier, requiring tho corporation couu
si 1 to "get out the necessary papers" and
institute proceedings with a view to con
demuiiig Ohio levee, between Eighth and
Fourteenth streets, and to report his action

Vennor says of tho summer and au
tumn : "Just as stormy and backward
weather characterized tho spring of 1882,
an 1 tho whole Northern Hemisphere, so in
like manner will tho stormy and severe
autumn of the year 1882 oc as extensively
experienced. Why? Is it always the case
that a cold and backward spring is suc
ceeded by a cold and stormy nutum! No
not always; but you see this spring had s
"weather relationship," in my system of
working. The general law of compensation
is acting pretty much in the same manner
as it did in another instance I have before
me, and it h.isyetgot to finish its pro.
gramme. People lait hed at the ''late front
and snowfalls in southern sections" pre
dieted by the same theory, but the lutiuh
has ceased. Now, again they smile (not
laugh this time) at thu idea of June frosts.
Let us wait an I see. Possibly wo may
havo a "broil up" towards midsummer for
a brief period, and just before the relapse
tocooiand cold weather, but this will
hardly constitute a warm summer. Beai
it in mind we do not dogmatically assert
the foregoing, but menly offer it as our
opinion which most people have now had
a chance of testing to some extent."
A Bloomington special under date of
Monday last, gives the following interest
ing piece of journalistic news: "The
Bloomington Bulletin, newspaper, was
sold to-day under various mortgages for
2,400, being bought in by Thomas J.
Buun, one of the creditors. A new firm
will be organized, composed of John
O'B.rdy. M. T. Scott and O. Beebe, who
will carry on the publication. The Bulle
tin Company was organized a little over a
year ago, with a capital of $30,000, as a
Democratic organ. Nearly all the capital
stock has been pan) in and used up, besides
the amount represented by the mortgages
and several floating debts. It will continue
Democratic iu principle." "John O'Bcr-
dy" means our John II. Oberly, of course,
The Bloomington Bulletin will live, and in
Bloomington, as a Democratic paper, too.
Well, it would certainly havo been strange
bad the Democrats of McLean county al
lowed the paper to succumb, after it re-
leemed the city from the corrupt Republi
can rule to which it had been subjected
for years. The Democrats of Bloomiuton
can not spare Mr. Oberly and his paper
and they know it. It is probable now that
Mr. Oberly will again take charge of the
newspaper and make things hot for tho
Republicans during tho coming fall cam
paign. One of the points to be considered in
the determination of w hat would be tho bebt
means of preventing the accumulation of
water within our lovees in the future, iu
whether or not such plan can be carried out
in time to meet fhe next rise in the river,
so as to give the desired relief then. It is
important that the relief saught should bo
prompt, for a repetition of tho evils result
ing from the late flood, or even anything
approaching thereto, would bo indirectly
more injurious than was tho case the latt
time. Even partial relief would bo very
desirable. In order to determine
whether any plan can bo promptly executed
or not, its probable cost must be ascertain
ed, mid if it requires tho co-operation of
individual citizens, it becomes a matter of
importance whether or not such co-operation
can bo obtained. Filling, for instance, to
any extent whatever, would require the wil
ling nnd immediate co -operation of many
individual property owners in' tho city.
Thia would bo hard to obtain because of tho
great cost of tho work and the inconvenience
many ot them wouid be put to, whoso houses
stand below tho high water lino within tho
levees. To attempt to forco property owners
to fill up thetT low lots, or to do it for them
and then attempt to confiscate their property,
are propositions which confront us with
probable legal proceedings of such length
and expenso as would rob even their final
accomplishment (which is doubtfull) of half
its blessings. But as proveu in a previoup
issue of The Bulletin, filling alone would
not givo tho deBired relief. It would uot
even prevent entirely the inflow of si pe-water,
for when the rivers reach an unusual
hight, the water bubbles up through ground
that is higher than the avenues
are. Furthermore tho several pumps nnd
other steam machinery that would be re
quired, would necesitate the outlay of largo
sums of money which the city can not well
spare right now. Whatever plan of pre von-

tion is adopted, must if it requires the out
lay of largo sums of money by either the
city of its citizens, be carried out gradually;
must, of necessity take some years in its
final accomplishment. That filling and
pumping will require the outlay of such
sums, and that the 0110 without the other, or
at first only a partial resort to both, would
be worse than ineffectual, is almost selfevi-
dent and was sufficiently set forth in Tues
day's Bulletin. It seems, therefore, that
for immediate relief, even though it be but
partial, filling and pumping are not avail
able. Nut bo with puddling. Puddling
can bo carried to any extent, however small
and its effect can only be good it muat re
sult in a decrease of the avenues by which
tho rivers find their way into the city;
carried to whatever extent, it must and will
serve as so much ol an impediment to sipe
ago. If a single sand ridge leading into tho
city from tho rivers bo effectually cut off,
water can not How through it intu the city
and the volumn of sipe-water within tho
city must bo accordingly decreased. Pud
dling to a small extent, will not,
like filling, raiso the level of
whatever rain water may fall, but will do
directly the reverse: it will lower that level
by excluding some of tho sipu-watir
and giving so much more room for tho rain
water. Puddling could bo done at a lesser
or greater cost according as the ridges to
be closed were largo or small. Asyct there
has been no teat of tho ground with a view
to ascertaining what prospects for effective
puddling it oilers. What borings there
havo been were made anywhere, and tho
fact that these borings proved that tho
ground in those particular places was un
favorable to puddling does not provu that it
is uniformly so. Rut even supposing that
it wore uniformly ho, even then puddling
would havo the effect of impeding the in
flow of water during high rivers to what
ever extent it might be carried out, and its
good effects would bu increased as the tren
ches were dug deeper and extended further.
In their efforts to learu what would bo tho
best plan, tho committee that is to bo must
not bo lead to condemn any plan suggested
without fir8tJthoroughly understanding its
merits and demerits. That puddling will
bcoffuctuali i proportion os it may bo result
ed to is as palpably true as it is that less wa
ter will How through a spigot than through
bung holo. But how near puddling can bo
made to act aB a complete cure, and what
the probablo cost would bu to raako it do
so, can only bo ascertained by a system of
borings. It would seom, thoroforo, that one
of the first acts of the committee, towards
obtaining tho data necessary to a proper
consideration of the subject of puddling,
should be to recommend an examination,
by borings, of tho ground at tho outer baso
of the city's now loveo, which would cost
comparatively littlo. Mr. II. T. Gerould,
