The council of Charleston, Mo., is
wrestling with the question of providing a
rock pile for petty law breakers. Cairo
has also taken turns at the problem several
times within the year gone by, but hasn't
gotten the thing down to a system yet. The
difficulty seems to be mainly in keeping
enough prisoners in jail to make their labor
pay more than the expense of hiring a man
to watch them while at work.
From the reports of Collector W. H.
Euhanks for March, it appears that the
amounts received from the various sources
in this internal revenue district during that
month wore as follows: distilled spirits,
t 1,538.39; tobacco, etc., $33,887.70; fer
mented liquors, $6,608.07 : banks and bank
ers, $131,80; penalties, .51; total $41,160.
47. This is $19,453 48 more than the total
collections of the provious month, the in
crease boing about equal ou each item, in
proportion to the whole amount for each,
which is a healthy indication of a rapid
approach to the normal state of things.
Mr. ,J. S. Hawkins has been at work
for several days on the sewers which caved
in lately on Eleventh and Fourteenth
streets. The cause of the caving wa the
rotting away and breaking down of
plankB that had been laid over maubolts in
the sewers, and then covered over when the
streets wore filled up to gmJe. The cavity
made on Eleventh street was right in front
if the entrance to Mr. C. W. Wheeler's
wood yard, and Mr. Wheeler had between
fifteen and twenty loads of earth dumped
into it, but the earth seemed to gradually
Hink away continually, which fact puzzled
many. But investigation explained it all
nod now Mr. Hawkins is bricking the
manholes up to a level with the street,
which will prevent future caving.
A white man came into the machine
ehopBof .Mr. J. B. Reed yesterday about
noon and offered to sell a piece of brass
machinery. Mr. Roed suopected from the
appearance and manner of the man that
the article he offered to sell was stolen, and
also thought ho recognized it as part of the
engine he lately bought from Mr. Burnett,
in the old Bulletin office. Investigation
moved this opinion to be true.
The man had been at work
at the old Bulletin building yester
day morning, cleaning out a cistern, and
he claims that a colored boy sold him the
piece of brass for thirty-five cents. Officer
Mshacoy took the man In charge
and with his assistance made soma
