During a discussion upon the majority
report of the Mississippi river special com

pointed language, which will strike all ac
quainted with the facts as eminently cor
rect. The record Buys: "Mr. Thomas, of
Illinois, a member of the select committee,
asserted that the Mississippi river commis
sion had in no wise exceoded its authority,
and placed himself on record here and
now in favor of the plan of the comrnis
sioupand that, too, including levees.
Eight members of the house, after floatmg
down the Mississippi by night and in a fog,
in a freight boat laden with empty keroseno
barrels and agricultural impliments, came
here, and in the fce of all the experience
of the best scientists said : 'You shall not
use money tor this or that purpose, because,
forsooth, we ha.ve been down the Mississip
pi river and know more about it than you
or the commission.' Tho friends of pooling
companies of railroads proposed to limit this
great national work and strangle it to
We are willing to share the honors at
tending the brilliant victory just gained
over the greatest fl ol ever known in this
country, with our neighboring little sister,
Mound City, the citizens of which fought
with valor equal to that displayed by the
citizens of Cairo and with equal success. It
is true, our little sister lies on ground some
what higher than Cairo's level, and she had
only one river to contend with ; but, on the
other hand, she is much weaker than Cairo
is; she is "a wee bit of a thing" in com
parison to Cairo and no doubt the battle
exhausted tier more than it did Cairo.
There is a fellow feeling between the truly
good and happpy and courages as well as
between the sinful, miserable and faint
hearted, and we are strongly tempted to
hug our blooming little sister to our heav
ing bosom, but bashfulness and Joe Robarts
are in the way. The former alone we might
overcome in a moment of exuberant feeling,
but tho latter is too much for us. Mound
City alone might be embraced, but Mound
City and Joe together, impossible!
The only important criminal case that
remains to bri tried by the circuit court is
that of State's Attorney James M. Damron,
against whom tho last grand jury found
three indictmeuts for receiving bribes and
illegnlfees for entering nollcs in important
criminal cases. The case was not taken up
at this term of tho court because no attor
ney could be had to conduct the prosecu
tiou, and it will be allowed to go over to tho
next term of court, Mr. Angus Leek has
been engaged by Mr. Damrn to conduct
the defence and he is very energetic and
earest in bis labors in behalf of his client.
Tho testimony against Mr. Damron, given
before the grand jury, was direct, several
receipts buing produced, given by him in
acknowledgement of the receipt of money for
sorvices rendered in cases mentioned. Due
ing the last few days some of these witness
es have been "approiched" with proposi-
sitions of a nature involving a virtual retrnc-
tion of what they stated under oath, and
upon their refusal to agree to such propo
sitions, were threatened with indictment
and prosecution for paying Mr. Damron
illeged fees, etc. Tho gravity of an at
tempt to intimidate witnesses in a criminal
case will appear fully when it Is stated
that such an act is punishable by imprison
ment ot the guilty parties; and in the opin
iou of some peoplo an attempt by any do
fendant or his friends, to intimidate the
prosecuting witnesses, is equal to an ac
knowledgement of a very weak defense to
say the least.

CAIRO TO TIIE RESCUE.
Enthusiastic Meeting of Cit
tions for Flood-stricken
A meeting of some of the leadiugcitizous
of Cairo was bold yesterday afternoon at
City Hall, for the purpose instituting an or
ganized effort to help relieve the sufferings
of the people of Sliawneetown.
The feeling of eutire security and Cairo's
escape from all injury by this flood, enabled
our citizens to give soma attention to the
sufferings of others; and former experiences
enabled them to appreciate these sufferings
fully and to sympathize with the poor
victims. In view of this their second vic
tory over tho greatest of all floods, easier,
more complete, more brilliant than the first,
the citizens of Cairo can well afford to aid
their very unfortunate neighbors in fact it
is their duiy to do this uoblo thing and it
gives us pleasure to announce that they are
not direlect in this duty.
The meeting was organizod by electing
Captain Thomas Wilson to the chair aud
Mr. Henry Elliott as secretary. The object
of the meeting was briefly stated by the
chair aud tbo following resolutions were of
fered by Csptaiu W. P. Halliday:
Whereas, The City of Cairo has pissed
through the unprecendented flood of 1883
entirely uninjured, but under circumstan
ces which arouse the most active empa
thies of her citizens for the losses and in
conveniences of their fellow citizens ot
Therefore; resolved that a committee of
three be appointed by the chairman, In
solicit subscriptions ot money aud provi
sion, to be torwarded immediately to the
mayor of Shawneetown, for the iui of the
sick aud suffering citizens of that city.
The ris ilu'.ioQS were uuaniiuoiisly adopt
ed aud the chair appointed us such com
mittee Messrs. P. W. Barclay, C. N. Hughes
and Magistrate A. Coinings.
Oo motion of Mayor Thistlewood, the

It was uuderstond that the committee
should solicit money ratherthan piovisions,
as that would bu more apt to serve all the
purposes of the suff Ters. Immediately af
ter the meeting adj turned several Un;e
subscriptions of mooey were made by some
of those present. The committee started
out immediately after and from the great
success with which it met duriug the few
hours yesterday evening, it is safe to pre
dict that a thousand dollars or more will
sent to the mayor of Shawneetown,
wi'u the compliments aud sympathy i t the
people of Cairo.
That those who atteuded the meeting
were enthusiastic in the cause under con-
iduration, and that their enthusiasm was
shared by citizens generally, was evident
from the fact that the committee got nearly
one hundred dollars subscribed before
eaving the hall, and that in a two hours'
canvas of the first ward the amount was
swelled to two hundred and fifty dollars.

Captain Thomas is now working ener
