Late Saturday night Chief Myers was
notified that a tramp had stolen some cloth
ing and money from an employe of Mr.
John Sackborger on Ohio leveo. Tho chief
was about to retire, but went out in search
of the thief. To search for a fugitive at
midnight was an unpleasant job, to find
him, wold seem to be almost impossible.
But after a long ride in all directions the
chief finally got traces of his man, and dis
covered him in an empty freight car in the
Wabash freight yards, away up town. The
nun was marched down to the calaboose
and yesterday, in the abseuce of sufficient
proof uf theft, he was finad tor vagrancy
and given a stay of execution, on coudition
that he leave town.
Mr. Quillhopper on wind and dust:
"Yes, gentlemen, that was rather a severe
storm here a few days ago, but wouldn't
compare with some I've Been. Why, a wind
came along here a few years ago that lifted
a street car clear from the track, and held it
against the sido of a house for four days.

I was shingling my house, I nailed the shin
gles all over the roof, and thought it took a
great many shingles to do it. Well when I
came to investigate, I found I had been nail

The Republican county central com
mittee at Its recent mooting did not decide
upon making nominations for county otll
cei; though it is tolerably certain that a
party county ticket is to bo put forth. Those
standing at the head of the party are desir
ous of making a local party right, bo are
the would-be candidates who have, for some
time past, been unable to conceal or repress
their aspirations. But the masses of tho
party are, as the masses of tbo people gen
erally, in favor of a non-partisan county
election, which, Iwing known to the lead
ers aforesaid, makes them very much tin

Temperance meetings were held at the
opora house and Presbyterian church Sun-
lay afternoon and evening. The latUr was
well attended. At the opera house
about one hundred people were
present. Mr. Hoofstitler, the speaker
upon both occasions, tuadu powerful and
eloquent speeches, and created much en
thusiasm among his hearers. He
is seeking to induce tlia tern
iterance people to make their
h'trht against intemperanco a political one
to vote only for temperance candidates
fur office, which may be interpreted to
mean, that if there are no temperance can
didates in the field, some sh"u!d be nomi
nated. Upon this point Mr. lloofstititr
and Dr. Reynolds are directly antagonistic.
At a meeting of the school board held
the latter pait of last week, Prof. Bigly
was reappointed superintendent, aud all the
teachers in the white public schools were
also reappointed to the positions they
have lieM during trie last year. All per
formed their duties faithfully and satisfac
torily, ami they richly deserve the compli
ment extended to them. It is not yet
known whether or not all will consent to
serve another year, but itis desirable that
they should. One reason w hy the board
made the appointments thus early was to
enable any who might be disinclined to
accept the reappointment to consider and
notify the board in time to enable it to cm
ploy others in their places. The following
is a list of the appointees: Misses M. E.
'attison, Alice L. Ford, Jennie Chase, Etta
r'oss, Ella F. Armstrong, Mary A. McEwen,
II. Risley, Emma LaCrone, N. J. Mc-
Kec, M. E.Riley, Mrs. I. B. Hudson, Miss
E. M. Riley and Miss E. Hotchkiss.
The case of J. R. Cunningham vs. tho
City of Cairo was to be up for trial in the
state supreme court at Springfield yester
day. Mr. Cunningham sued tor a writ of
mandamus to compel the city to declare the
vote cast for him at the next to last city
election, be being a candidate for city at
torney at said election. The case was
pending for some timo in tho circuit court
in this judicial circuit, but at the term of
the court defendant took a non suit and car
ried his case to the state supreme court.
The supreme court issued a summons for
Mayor Thistlewood and City Clerk Foley
last Friday, returnable yesterday afternoon
at two o'clock, requiring them to appear
and answer why a writ of mandamus should
not issue as prayed. But neither of these
gentlemen were in tho city. City Clerk
Foley hail asked the council's permission
about two weeks ago to leave on a short
trip of business and pleasure, and Mayor
Thistlewood had gone to Chicago to attend
to matters relating to his own business.
Tbo summons was therefore returned un
served, and Mr. Cuuningham's case will
probably go over until tho next term of tho
state supreme court.
The trial of Frank Jenkins and George
Ellis, two negroes, for keeping a gambling
house on Nineteenth street near Poplar,
was brought before Magistrate Coinings
yesterday afternoon upon a changoof venuo
from Justice Robinson. The trial of tho
case occupied all tho afternoon, and was
not concluded at night, but will be this af
ternoon. The testimony of a largo number
ot witnesses was taken. This morning at
tho opening of court tho case will be
argued by City Attorney Wm. E. Hen
dricks, for the city, and Goorgo Hendricks
for tho defense. It is a caso of importance,
as all such enses are. Gambling is one of
tho woist and most subtle vices with which
any city can boalllictod; tho officers aro
only too often ballled in their endeavors to
bring criminals of this class tojustico. One
reason of this is that they aro sharp, they
watch for, and grasp at, every advantage;
they presume upon the want of quick sensi
bilities of both officers and courts; they,
more than any other violators of law, seek
to influence officers and courts in their favor
by means both fair and foul, and when their
means fail in one place they forthwith try
another. Justice Robinson's sentence
against one pair of these Bcoundrels, though
very light, too light, seems to have had tho
effect of driving another pair off. In view
of the fact that Justice Robinson's sentence,
so far as it wont, was just, and had tho effect
of driving away two men who were to be
tried for tho samo offenses which prompted
this sentence, it would seem that justice was
what theso two wore afraid of. No ono
who is earnestly in search of justice will
run from justice, and to do bo is an open,
certain, unmistakable evidenco of conscious
guilt. Perjury Is another meaiiB resorted to
by nearly all gamblers, but especially
by' the negro gamblers in this
city. Hitherto it hag been almost
impossible to convict negro gamblers,
sometimes caught in tho very act, because,
not only would thoy themselves flatly deny
under oath all that was affirmed against
them, but would, by a mere beck, gather
around them a horde of conscienceless
scoundrels who would swear to anything
they might bo told to. Uuder theso cir
cumstunces both officers and courts have
been, in a measure, powerless to enforce
tho laws against gamblers. But yesterday,
in tho trials of Ellis and Jenkins, Officer
Haz. Martiu determined thut ho would make
an example of tho first ono of tho witnesses
who Bhould give any evidenco of reckless
ness in giving histestimonyandhosawfitto
arrest ouo of tho witnesses for the defense
upon a charge of perjury, who will be tried
by Justice Robinson this morning.
Perhaps tho strongest proof of Grand
mother Argus' sex is that she is confound
edly hard to please aud painfully inconi&t
ent. Some timo ago she objected to fire
limits because it prevented building, now
she is on both sides and astraddle of the
question all at the same time. (Persons
who know the old lady's habits will not
think this an uncomfortable position for
her to be in,) In her littlo harangue last
vening she starts out with : "The council
should act upon the amendment promised
to the fire limit ordiuance. We under
stood there are numerous people desirous
to build as soon as the tiro limits are prop
trly reduced." She wants the fire limits
reduced in order to vncouiage the building
of frame houses on lots now enclosed in
said limits. This is The Bulletin's un
derslHiiding ot that part of the item. But
flintier on Hie old lady objects to the ex
ceptions to this tyranuical ordinance which
the council has seen tit t
rant, and which resulted in the
erection of respectable frame structure.
The neat little domicile for tngless orphans
f the canine tribe, in the const ruction of
w hich Chief Myers and Mayor Thistlewood
taxed to its fullest capacity the mechanical
aud architectural skill with which kind na
ture has endowed them, in which they very
justly take a special pride, and which is to
be but a temporary affair, is an object of
special displeasure to the old lady, and she
calls it "a gross violation of law." The city
council was wrong in establishing the fire
limits, because thereby building was dis
couraged; it was wrong in granting excep
tions to the ordinance because thereby the
firn risk" on other property was added
to; it was wrong in not granting exceptions
because the applicants were moro meri tor
tus than those which were granted. It
was wrong when it did, wrong when it
didn't, it will be wrong if it does and
wrong if it don't. If to grant exceptions
was a "gross violation of law" and therefore
objectionable, then to refuse to do bo must
lave been a praiseworthy enforcement of
the law and the reverse. To blame the coun
cil for doing both is certainly tho part of
an acrumonious faultfinder. As may be
seen from the council proceedings in this
issue of The Bulletin, there are pending
before the council two ordinances which
considerably reduce the present fire limits,
one of which will probably be passed at to
night's meeting of tho council.
