Yesterday, Tuesdsy, the second rtgu
ar session of the ninth year of the South

that there will be in attendance tour hun
dred students dunng the term. The first
two days the unusually large number of
2-S5 pupils were registered. Up to Thurs
day tbejoll numbered 301. A lartre num
ber of new students are among the num
ber." Among those of the legislative officers
elected by the Republican general assembly
with tho assistance of Hon. W. A. Lemma,
Democrat, who are from Southern Illinois,
we find the following: John'A. Reeve, of
Cairo, was elected Clerk of the House;
Lindsay Steele, of Chester, doorkeeper;
John W. Heideman, of Metropolis, third
assistant doorkeeper; EI. Mitchell, of
Marion, first assistant secretary ot the
senat, eand S. S. Farker, of Golconda,
second assistant sergeant-at-arnis. Be
sides this, Richard Taylor, of Cairo, will
most probably be appointed a policeman,
and H. Gladden of the same city a janitor.

of this prison gives a minute detailed ac
count of all the work done in construction
since the prison was established The ap
propriation for maintenance made by the
last legislature will be in sufficient to meet
the waut3 of the prison until July first, and
Lyecomend that a deficiency appropriation
bo made to enable the commissioners to
start upon the next two years out of debt,
also such an appropriation for its mainte
nance and construction for tho next two
years as you may find necessary.
The Illinois Cen'ral railroad company
is taking steps to have tho Mound City
road, which it recently bought from Captain
W. P. Halliday, put in good order. But
it is making haste very slowly in the work
and the reasons therefor are given briefly in
tho following item in tho Mound City col
umn of the Argus several days ago: "The
Ills. Central is getting around very slowly
to put its lute purchase here, the Mound
City railway, m good order for traffic. The
surveyor has been along and got such in
formation as he needs to make a plan of tho
work to bo doue, and the track has been
straightened up sufficiently to permit tho
running of freight cars over it Tho new
owners of tho road are playing the
Bauie gamo that is worked so successfully
with new roads. They think tho Mound
City people are anxious enough for tho im
provement of tho road to giant all conces
sions they ask, which comprise about all the
place has togivo, and would make the town,
if utilized, u mr.ioii3 yard for tho Illinois
Central. They want the river lront, a large
part of the ground occupied by tho old navy
yard, tho whole of the broad avenue ou
which the track lies now, including tho
school houso site and old depot site, and as
much more as they think the city can bo
induced to give. It may bo to the interest
of tho town togive what they ask, but evi
dently tho citizens do not think so now
The city is not ablo to uive much, morcly to
retain tho old road; and for whatever it
does givouhould have ainplo guarantee ot
quid pro quo. When it comes to this, tlut
people have to pay as liberally to retain old
roads as they do to secure new ones, they
do to s cure new ones, they will begin to
think of trying to got aloug without rail
Somotimo ago a man namod Smith,
living iu Stonofort, Johnson county, had a
small lot of eges sent to him by the Wa
bash road, and they did not comu to him in
good order, He sued the company for
damages and obtained judgement. But
the company didn't settle quite promptly
enough to suit him and ho bad a froight
car tied up: chained to the track. Sunday
or Monday, while making up a freight train
tho car was accidently broken loose from its
fastening, which excited the whole Stone
fort community to a degreo which bodei
dire vengenanco to tho first officer or em
ploye of the road that might venture to
show his phiz there. The Smiths instruct
ed the county constable to hold himself in
readings and to capture tho whole d d
Wabash company, Jay Gould and all, at
tho very first opportunity. 'Accordingly
when on Tuesday night the regular freight
train came into the town and while taking
what freight was there to take, the con
stable having fortified himself for the im
portant duty with copious draught of li
quid corn, proceoded to the caboose and
arrested the "corndoctor the biggest
man on the train by ," but who had
not been at all concerned in the matter for
which he was arrestod. There was a jus
tice of the peace at Stonefort, but tho con
stable, for somo reason, would not allow his
prisoner to be examined there, and in plain
violation of state law, proceeded toward a
little place known as Stealeasy, about ton
miles away from Stonefort. Tho conductor
left his train and followed submissively, but
he soou found an opportunity to escape.
On the way his guard found it necessary
frequently to draw upon his flask for more
courage and before the couple had pro
ceeded very far suy one meeting them and
ntt knowing better would have taken
the prisoner for the officer and vice
versa. When the constable wss sufficiently
"corned" to render his locoraation some.
what uncertain, tho "corndoctor" left him
without hindrance, boarded his train and
came away from Stonefort but a little be
hind time. Thus was the majestic law
again foiled in the glorious county of John
Died, yesterday at 8:13 p.m., George A ,
oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. A. T. DeBaun,
aged two years and fourteen months.
Funeral service will be held at St.
Patrick's church at 2 o'clock, p.m., to-day,

Deceased was a bright little boy. He
had been sick hardly twenty-tour hours

Argus: "The Bulletin charges that
Hon. Wm. A. Lemma and four other
Democratic state senators voted against the
Democratic nominees for senate officers.
The editor has read carelessly. After over
a half hundred ballots these aerators ab
sented themselves, or refrained from voting
to permit an organization to bo effected.
They they did not vote for the Republican
nominees. The Republicans have a ma
jority in the senate, but a few bolted the
caucus ticket. They never would have
voted for the Democratic nominees, bow
er." Tub Bulletin's item to which refer
ence is in tde in the aove was based upon
an editorial in the Springfield Register,
which charged Messrs. Walker, Lemma,
Rinehart, Merritt and Edwards, with "de
liberately deserting their caucus nominees
to help the Republicans out of the diffi
culty they had brought upon themselves."
It may be tnat the Register did not mean
to intimate that the gontlemcn named voted
for the Republican nominees; but what
then? Does the wrongfulness of a Demo
cratic representative's support of Republi
can machine nominees depend upon the
manner in which he does it? Is it any the
less inexcusable to purposely and without
good reason cause the election of the Re
publican nomincess by deserting the Dem
ocratic nominees, than it would be to effect
tho sumo result by openly voting for tho
former? We think not. Manly courage
is always to bo admired a bold deserter
without good cause, is intiintely prefera
ble to one of tho cowardly, stieakiug kind,
who deserts you without warning at a criti
cal moment. Wo of this congressional dis
trict have had a surfiot of tho latter
kind in congress during tho last few years
and we are thoroughly sick of them. Here
is a brief statement ot the case as it appears
to us: The Republicans had a majority in
tho senate ; united, they could have elected
auy body in spite of tho Democrats; the
cause of the dead-lock was the desertion
from thoir party of five Republicans, who
were disgusted with the workings of the
Republican machine; this defectiou tender
ed the relatlvo strength ot tbo two parties
too nearly equal to enable . either to elect
all their cardidatos, which afforded a very
favorable opportunity for Democrats to de
mand aud receive somo important concus
sions; but Mr. Lamina and his deserting
companions found the Republican machine
candidates less objectionable than did
tho flvo desorting Republicans, and
they deliberately deserted thoir own
party for the avowed purpose of throwiug
away a Democrotic opportunity by remov
ing the obstacle to the election of the Re
publican caucus nominees who woro re
pudiated by five members of their own
party. Wo confess that we fail to see that
tho indirect, tho underhanded nature of
the act of Mr. Lemma is any extenuating
Paducah is to have water works, and
Mr. Tnvcrso Daukl is to build them as
appeals fr mi the following iu the Nows of
Monday: "A reporter of tho News had
tho piciitmru of an interview, this morn
ing, with Mr. Travers Daniels, of Clarks
villo, Tenn. Mr. Daniels is hero with a
view to erect a system of water works,
which he proposes to submit to our citi
zens for their upproval. The Nows is grat
ified at being ablo to anuounco that the
project is favorably received, and that it is
only a question of time, and it is hoped a
very short time, too, when Paducah will be
supplied with a good workiug water works
system. Mr. Daniels is a man who has
had a largo experience in tho construction
of water works, having built thoso now in
successful oporation at Clarksvillo, Tenn,
New Albany, Ind., Dallas, Texas, Birming
ham, A!a., and Little Rock, Ark.; besides
being tho consulting engineer in a number
ber of similar enterprises in other towns.
The plan which Mr. D. now lias under
consideration embraces tho erection of a
pump house, fitted with the necessary ma
chinery, a stand pipe 140 ftet high and
15 feet in diameter, with six miles of mains
graded from 12 to 4 inches in diameter.
The importance of a good and reliable
system of water works is something that Is
bo well understood by our citizens that it
requires no comment at our hands. Mr.
Daniels will present his plans to tbn city
Council ut "its meeting this evening.",
Theso works will bo much small
er than those Mr. Daniel con
tracted to furnish the City ot Cairo.
Cairo's works, which Mr. Daniel was to
build for the city, weretu comprise a stand
pipe two hundred feet high and twenty feet
in diameter, and the least of seven miles
of mains was to be ten inches iu diameter.
These conditions were imposed by the coun
cil committee at tho suggestion of one of
its members who was an experienced en
gineer and who thought that any reduction
of sizes, either in tho stand-pipe or
mains, would result in rendering 4lie works
incompetent to furnish the supply needed
for a city of Cairo's size. Had tho city
council consented to make even but a slight
amendment of the contract in this direc
tion, it is very likely that Mr. Daniel
would have found capitalibts by tho dozen
who would havo backed hi:u in the enter
prise, and unless other conditions had in
terfered with the progress of tho work,
Cairo's works would probably now bo in
operation. But under all the circumstan
ces, we believe the council did well wot to
make any concessions iu the way of reduc
ing the dimensions of pipes, capacity of
pumps, etc. If Cairo wants water-works
eho can get them now as easily as at any
time. Mayor Thistlewood has, only witb-
n the last few weeks, received several let
ters from engineers, asking to be informed
if the city desires to receive bids for water
works. The work9 Mr. Daniel has pro
posed to put up for Paducah would, accord
ing to, the opinion of the gentleman who
was principally instrumental iu formulat
ing the specifications imposed by the Cairo
council upn Mr. Daniel, and in whose
good judgment we and the people of Cairo
have tho ureatest confidence, be entirely
inadequate to supply the City of Cairo
with water. It may, however, do, after a
manner, for Paducah, which docs not coyer
as much ground as Cairo does.

that traffic amounts to more than $70,000,
