Several train loads of delegates and

crowded almost to aullocation last evening

The Springfield Journal pays Captain
Thomas the following compliment: "Tlx
Republican congressional convention in the
XXth district will bo held at Cairo on
Thursday, Hon. John R. Thomas is at
homo looking after his interests, and though
there has been a hot contest in his district,
his nomination is now probable. Mr
Thomas has made one of tho moot lucful
members the district ever bad in congress,
and his failure to secure a renoniinatioii
would be a misfortune tJ the Republican
party ot the whole state.
It has been suggestive tint the fancy
chairs in the auditorium of the opera house
should be substituted by substantial, rough
board benches, which would be less handy
as weapons of olfense and defense, and
would not entail suet a heavy loss upon the
management in case ot destruction. But,
to judge from the very" gentlemanly, good
humored and intelligent appearance ot the
delegates ns they cr-nvded in and around
the llalliday yesterday, there would seem
to be no such danger as is anticipated in
During the twenty-four hours ending at
1 o'clock yesterday afternoon, the Ohio river
fell nine inches at this point. From points
above the river reports were as follows:
Chattanooga, fall of one inch; Cincinnati,
fall of nine inches; Louisville, stationary;
Nashville, fall of four inches; St. Louis,
fall of one foot. The stage of water here
yesterday at the hour named was thirty
seven feet four inches. The seweis can be
opened when it shall have reached about
thirty six feet, which, it is believed, will be
about to night, as stated in yesterday's
A correspondent of the St. L mis lie-
publican interviewed Hon. F. E. Albright,
of Murphyshoro, at theLindell at St. Louis,
a day or two ago, and learned from that
gentleman some interesting things about
the politics and cropR of the Twentieth
congressional district of Illinois. Among
many other things the reporter says: l,If
Mr. Thomas is renominated, it is expected
that Mr. Albright will be given the Demo
cratic nomination and meet Thomas in joint
discussion on the stump." The reporter is
certainly a little too previous in his remarks.
As yet there is no telling with any degree
of cert doty who the Democratic opponent
of Captain Thomas will be.
Although the country has been resting
in the pleasant belief lint the Uuiteau bus
iness is at an end, it seems that it is to be
revived in a new phase. If Washington
reports are correct, an unseemly struggle
is now to bein between Dr. Hicks and
Mrs. Scoville, the latter claiming pinses
aion of the body of the assissiu on the
ground that be was insane, an! therefore
not competent to dispose of his remains.
Although Hicks has weakened his cliiins
by becoming a convert to the insanity or
inspiration theory, the c nuts will, without
doubt, sustain hisright. Mis. Scoville bids
fair to become a public nuisance, an I
sliouM be suppressed by law.
Eighth street, the southerly side tlicte
of, between Ohio levee and Commercial
avenue, would seem to need some attention
very soon. U wing to Ihe late irequenl rams
the street Ins b:idly caved in and it seems
to be i.till in danger of caving until travel
may be interfered with. Furthermore there
is even now danger to pcdertriauisin on dark
nights. One gentleman whose name need
not be mentioned, in passing down that side
of the street toward commercial avenue
late Tuesday night aecidcntly stepped from
the edge of the street and was precipitated
nearly to the bottom before he could catch
himself. Fortunately ho was not injured.
Some kind of subslaur.ial railing should be
placed along the vacant lots until a side
walk can again bo built there.
-Several of the more prominent strikers
for Judge Damron during the late primary
cat light here, yesterday proved their utter
huartlessness by giving exprcs
ion to thmr satisfaction at
the successful manner iu which they
used tho judge und his "ham" for their
own f ictional ends, without intending over
to carry out their part of the programme
beyond tho county convention. This
knowledge will nmko the judge's doleat
which is a foregone conclusion doubly bit
tor, and ho will very likely resolve if ho has
not already done so to never again bo tho
dupe nnd cat's paw to a ,ttu m, 0f
clamorous, mostly hall'.Htarve 1 and la?y,
professional ollico seekers.
Speculation as to the result of tho ses
sion of tho convention at tlio Opera House
to day was very lively and very varied yes
terday, and betting was equally so. But it
was evident on every hand that tho belief
that Thomas would come out
victorious was predominant, Not only did
each known candidate bring a largo Bquad
of working politicians with him yesterday,
but thero wero several who have hitherto
been playing " 'possum" so to speak, who
have also como with a largo delegation of
friends to work up a boom at tho first op
portunity. Prominent among tho latter is
the Hon. Iko ClementJ, of Ciuboiidale, w ho
is confidently said to bo one of the "daik
horses." The Hon, Iko came into town
yesterday with a whole car load of miuor
politicians at his heels, all ready to do
him a good turn if a chance shall bu of
fered. Thii slate of the case will make it
only the more interesting.
--Chief Myers and Officers Martin and
Mahanny are engaged in n very com
mendable effort to compel the cypriaus und
the keepers of the domicles in which tin y
are enscoused to conform to a reasonable
compliance with ihe ordinances of the city.
Ycsteiday they arrested Nancy Woods who
keeps a disorderly house down town some
where, and Magistrate Comings fined her
ten dollars and costs. This is the lowest
fun!, but it was also the prisoner's
first offense that is, though the woman
may have In en carrying on her nefirious
business in a quiet way for many months,
it was the first time that she was brought
before tho court to answer tho charge. The
officers were well fortified with proof and
showed that Nancy's house was a very ob
jectionable one. i tic curt, in icndiiing
judgment, expressed his desire to 'et a
chance at some of tho male supporters of
these institutions of vice, and promised I o
assess a double fine upon any of these, he
cause he believed them to bu tho more re
sponsible for tho existence of Slid institu
tions. The officers also am-sted a young
white woman ol very odorous repute, who
had been wandering about the streets for
some time, frequenting saloons and dens of
iniquity for s ane time back. Jesse Woods
is her mine, and she was fined fifty dollars
and costs and given a s'ay of thirty six
hours in which to leave the ciiy. The offi
cers will see that the woman leaves or is
imprisoned for fifty-live days.
The petition of the fire companies and
the Mystic Krew, asking the council to al
low them a portion of the cost of filling
the race track in St. Miry 'a park out of the
city trea-mry,camo up for the second time in
the city council Tuesday night, and was set
aside for consideration at the next regulur
meeting, which occuis on the second Tues-
lay in August."" The boys feel very keenly
the opposition nnnifested to their request
by the council. They must have expected,
of course, a searching inquiry into the ro..t
and cli iract r of the work done, and they
must havj also expected that tho council
would not consent to bear all the cost of
the work; but they had certainly some
reason to believe that they would be let
lown more gently than they were. Instead
of being about a hundred or two Lill ir ,
the cost of the woi k done was over five
hundred dollars, a very large sum to pay by
the nrganiz itioiis which had the celebration
in charge, for an improvement to be used
by thrin only for one day. But the im
provement is a public one, as much s i as
the extermination of that insly pond of
water on Commercial avenue, near Ninth
street, would be. The public and the city
is to derive a permanent fiUuie benelit
tiiucfroin and it seems but equitable that
the public should at le ist pay a very rea
son ible price for the beiu fit. Iu view of
the tact that the boys will fall very much
short of "coming out even'' on the celebia
tion, utile- s they receive some allowance
from the city fund, the disposition of the
council to withhold such allowance be
come:! a serious matter to them. But it
in iy lei th it time will Hofti'ii the adaman
tine heart wf the ci'y fathers and induce
them lo do the fair thing By the boys.
Without Alexander county's vote,
which is contested, the first ballot in the
convention to day will stand, Thomas,
sixty-nine; Voting, thirty one; Smith,
twenty two; Fountain, eighteen; Dam
ron, fifteen. Damron, it will
observed, stands win r- he belongs, at
the bot'om of the ladder. If thu chairman
who calls the convention to order
rules again as ho did at the county
convention, that "ull contested counties
have a right to vote both delegations and
all 'protcited' delegations shall not voto,
upon preliminary organization," and if then
when Alexander county is cilled, tho
Thomas delegates from this county manage
toget in u "protest'' on tho Ditutuni del
egation, then thu Thomas delegates will
havo eighty-four votes upon preliminary
organization and can easily get enough
more lo elect a chairman who is in sympa
thy with Thomas, who will appoint a com
mittee on credentials which will give tho
Thomas delegates a fair show, 'and tho re
sult will bo that the Thomas delegates will
be seated. But it is not at all likely that
the gentleman who will call tho convention
to order to-day will do what was
done in the county convention. It
would bo too bold an irregularity,
it would not "go down" gullets which had
not been previously "greased" with tho
now famous "ham" which did such Ignoble
work for its distributor, Judge Damron, in
tlio primaries here. However this may, it
is certain that Judge Damron stands
not near as much chanco of nomination as
does tho Hon. W. T. Scott, who
would bo a better man for tho
place in every respect, especially In respect
