The Washington correspondent of the
Chicago Times, speaking of the impend
ing senntorial contest in the 6tale, says :
An Illinoisgontlcmen hero has just received
the report of a careful canvass of the Illi
nois legislature on the Benatorinl question.
He is informed that there uro thirty five
members to be couuted on for Governor
Cullom, thirty for ex-SonVor Oglesby,
twenty-five for Commissioner Raum, and a
few for each for Representatives Heuderson
and Payson, who have started little sena
torial booms in their own counties. Gen.
Rinakeris held in reserve as a good dark
horse. Tho fact that Cullom, Oglesby and
Raum are bo nearly matchod raises a good
deal of doubt as to the ability oi any ouo
of them to got an election, but there is
another solution of tho difficulty which is
more probablo than the election of either,
Henderson, Payson or Rinaker, and that
is the re election of Sjaator Dtvis. Tho
senator is not a ctndidate, but that proba
bly moans that bo is not looking for re
jection or making the slightcBt effort to
get it. Ho certainly is not a candidate, but
there is uo reason to suppose Unit if a
second term were olTorod him bo would
decline it. Thore aro several reasons for
thinking that the profitable results will be
the dofoat of all tho Republican candidates
and tho re-olection ot the Senator. This
would give the R' publicaus in the next
senate 87, the Democrats 36, the RoadjuBters
2, and there would bo 1 Independent. On
electing tbo senatorial officers, Senator
Davis would vote with tho Democrats, ena
bling thorn to tie tho Republicans, and
leaving Mahono and Riddlebcrgor masters
of the situation. This is assuming that all
the Republican will go into a caucus and
support tba caucus nominees, and that
very senator is present.
some railroad talk
IN WUICU CAUlO IS INTERESTED.
Mayor Reed returned from Ciro last
night on the Fowler, As has already been
stated in the News the object of his visit
was to meet Cel. E. Prat liuell, vice presi
dent and chief engineer of tho Toledo,
Texts & Rio Grande ruilnad, a compiny
which is desirous of striking the Ohio river
nt a point opposite this city.
A reporter for tbo News called upon His
Honor aud in thecoursoof the interview
elicitedtho following facts:
''I was joined at Metropolis," said Mr.
Reed, "by Ben. Rankin, Mayorof th tt city,
Col. Wra. R. Brown, Judo R. W. McCart-
neyand F. A. Trousdale, tho latter, editor
of tho Domocrat. You will see by the in
fluential delegation from our down river
neighbor tbtt the people there are in earn
est in their tfiforto socuro this road.
"Well, wa met CjI. Buall, an 1 in an in
formal interview learned that his company
was desirous of running a branch ot their
great narrow g . age system to Paducah,
where it would cross the river, and theuce
push on to Paris, Tennoaueo. This nar
row guago system ii an immense thing. It
extends from tho northern lakes to Cairo
and from thero through Missouri, Arkan
sas and Texas to tho Rio Grande river.
From thence it is the intention to ruu a
line to the city of Mexico. A gap of only
15? miles remains to bo built to make a
connecting system of narrow gaugo rail
way embracing upwards of 10,000 miles of
track. Tho northern route is now built
aud in active operation through tie cities
of Dayton, Cincinnati aud Toledo, aud
from those poiuts to St. Louis. The gap
I have already spokeu of has been eur
vpyed, located aud is now under Contract
to be completed by Sjptimbor ht, 1383.
Thyj short line connecting tho two great
svs'ems begins at MatcaU, Edgar county,
III., oo tbo Toledo and St. Louis road and
extends to a point on the St. Louis and
Cairo road In .Jackson county, Illinois, not
far from Carboud ale.
"From what I could learn from Col. Ru
ell, in a short conversation I had with him,
his company desires to make connection
with Paducah by a short line leading from
old Fraokford, in Franklin county, III.,
through the counties of Williamson, John
son aud Massac. He informed me that the
preliminary survey would cost about $2,000.
The counties on the other side of the river
havo agreed to hear a portion of tho ex
pense, aud Col. Biioll atka thnt our citizens
also contribute. If our people will do their
share I am satisfied that we can secure this
lino leading from Marion, 111., to Paris,
Tenu. The advantages of Biich a line to
Paducah are obvious."
Tho reporter here inquired how much
Col. Bucll thought was tho "share" of the
towns on the Hue!
Mayor Reed replied thai as near ns he
could understand, the company would ex
pect the people to furnish the tight of way
and grade, tie and bridge the lino. "It
does not cost as much," ho continued, "to
build a narrow us a standard guago road.
Col. Buell thought 3,000 a mile would put
it through. He said that a uu irantee of
that amount would enable the cumpmiy to
plnce its bunds, and the people would uot
be called upon to pay a dollar uutil the
lino wa completed. Everything favorable,
tbo road could be finished ucxt year."
"I have a letter here which I received
from President B. F. Johnson, ol the Kas
kaskia River, St. Elmo & Southern rail
road. As you will see the company is also
desirous of reaching Paducah." And Mr.
Reed handed llie reporter the following:
"Gen. Office K. R , St. E. & 8. R. R.
St. Elmo, III., D -c. 20.
"To the Mayor of Paducah, Ky:
"Dkar Sir: As we hive arrived at an
important point in the survey and location
of our railroad, aud having been strongly
solicited to make your city the terminus of
thu road instead of Cairo, as at first cou
templated,I take tbo pleasure of writing to
you with regard to tho matter.
"So, if your people feel interested In n
northern outlot and will manifest it by giv
ing us some encouragement in the WHy of
substantial aid, we will talk busiueBi.
"Yours very rer.pectfully,
B. F. Johnsdn, Pres'l."
As to tho lino aud objective points of
this now acpiraut for Paducuh's fuvor, but
little is known. One thing, however, is
tolerably certain, aud that is, if tho sever
al roads proposed, ceuter at a point oppo
site this city, a bridge across tho river is ad
certain as if it was an already accomplish
The Nows will have somctbiug more to
say on Iho subject of railroads in the near
--Of lato thore has been some discussion
of tbe manner in which the Southern Illi
nois Penitentiary is managed. Some char
ges aro made by persons living near the in
stitutions, which ought to cause an exam
ination to be mado luto affair of tbe pris
on. A correspondent In a late issue of tbe
Springfield Register, signing himself 'B"
and replying to a commendatory dispatch
in the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, makes
tho following bold assertions:
"With tho exception of a few old prison
attaches who went to Chester with tho first
gang of 200 convicts, and the chief engin
eer, the guards aro a net of lazy, incompe
tent and drunken men. Why, a short time
since the resignation of Mr. Jones was re
quested becttuso of virulent intoxication,
and tho oroers that aro periodically, placed
on tl-e bulletin board forbiding intoxication
(why not discharge the wen guilty thereof?)
superficially thotv tho existence ot the
offense, otherwise the orders would bo un
necessary. What a travesty upon discipline and in
trepid prison management it is, when it is
necessary to double up the wall guard and
keep two armed guards in the deputy's
office at thu solitary building all day.
Discipline 1 Wlut kiud of discipline
permits a convict to march up and down
tho shoe shop braudiehing a club, aud then
to make bis way tiuhuuipored to the fence,
and, despite two guards ou that fence, make
good bis exit?
What species of diacipMno i that which
would permit a convict to procuro a barrel
or two of matches matches are tobooed
articles, according to tho printed regula
tionswherewith to poison hiiUMt-lf, as the
coroucr'sjury decided convict Charles Mob-
bny did; a verdict which the oflici rsof tho
penitentiary say is utterly at variance with
What kind of penitentiary discipline is
that which a'lows sin convicts (Hudson,
Sells, Jordan, League ami two others) to
meet, concert a plan for their escape, mako
all necessary arrangement and only their
attempts frustrated by the cluuisine. s of
two of their number?
Discipline! Let a correspondent go to
Chester in cog, and look under the s'trfuce,
and he will see tho other side of the medal,
and it will astonish him."
Not The fame Sullivnn.
A New York letter to tho Detroit Free
lWn,i says: Alexander M. Sullivan, tho
Irish journalist nud member of Parlia-,
meiit, departed homeward a few days
ago. He returned fmm New Orleanx
last week. A pretty fair story is told
about his advent thero. Having a good
many friends in the Ciwent City.proi).
arations were mado to give him'a pub
lic reception. Pretty nuifMi everyone,
including the street boys, got bofd of
his name. It wits Sullivan' hero, there
and everywhere, no is a small man,
standing about tivo foot six, weighing'
prolvibly 130 pounds, and in delioatu
health. Tho boys got a notion, some
how, that lio was another Sullivan,
whose fanio is of a tliil'eront kind. A
crowd gathered in front of tho house in
which ha was a guest Ho was tired
out and did not show himself. Pretty
soon tho boys began to call:
"ijullivaii Sullivan: hi.Stillivan!"
WIkoi iM had boon going on some
time, u I,, appeared at a window
and said tbo geutlenian was fatigued,
and wished to bo excused. He had
hardly retired whon tho cry wont up
"Sullivan, Sullivan! Como out Sulli
van!" The friond canio to tho window again,
and said Mr. Sullivan really could not
appear. Uo was shut off with:
"Sullivan, Sullivan, Sullivan! We
want to boo Sullivan!"
"Well, said tho friond, "thore he is;
lodk at him," pointing to tho journalist
who happenod to be seated near the
wiudow. "Take a good look and then,
if you ploaso, go home." The crowd
looked, and a ragamuDJn of about 15
put up bis fists in scientific stylo and
"Say, Sullivan, come out and give us
a round. I'm your man, old follow."
Then a bigger boy interrupted with:
"X-a-w, that aiu't Sullivan. I scon Sul
livan when ho licked Ryan. That ain't
him. I could lick that fuller myself!"
It may bo a great thing to bo a jour
nalist and a member of Parliament, but
there is famo for a tirst-class "aluggor,"
According to tho newspapers of Rio
Janeiro, writing on the eleventh anni
versary of the passing of the law of
emancipation in 1871, tho effect of that
measure has been singularly beneficial
to tho material aud moral development
of the country. In thono ynar. niorw
than 60,000 slavos have bcou spontane
ously frood by their masters without
compensation, while tho State has given
liberty to more than 11,000. During tho
same period 260,000 children ot Biaves
havo been bom free, nud tho cost to the
state of emancipation up to the present
time has boon nearly $4,000,000.
