Chief Myers has prepared his annual
report to the city council, giving the nura

nature of the offenses which provoked
them. The total number of arrests made
it 1.207, which u just 811 leu than were
made the year before, when the total num
ber was 1,578. In view of the fact that the
ordinances were generally very closely ob
served and enforced, and all petty violators
made to suffer the penalty of their offenses,
tbo showing is a creditable one, both for
the officers and for the city.

they claim for it, and have plenty of witness
es right here in Cairo to endorse it

be the confirmation of the appointive offl
cors, whose names will be submitted by

whose names appear upon that slate can be
answerod correctly probably . only by the
mayor-elect, who hu maintained a pro
found tilence concerning them and given
no applicant any. reason to believe that he
wu the favored one above all or any oth
ers. - The reading of the names of tbe nom
inees will be, a pioaaeot surprUe even to
the lucky onos Tuesday night.
Concerning the Indictment And trial of
young Robert Willis for killing young
Whitman at Metropolis, some time ago, the
murdered boy's father says to a Paducah
News reporter that "Willis wu indicted by
the grand jury for willful murder, and then
released on $2,000 bail, the case being con
tinued until tbe circuit court in November
next. That a number of the , officers
of tbe court seem to be trying to obstruct
tbe course of justice rather than do
their duty in assisting its progress. He
bsd to attend to the summoning of witness
es before the grand jury himself, and it wu
with difficulty that he could get them into
the grand jury room. Mr. Whitman brings
sleo a more serious charge yet. He states
that tbe grand jury list wu given to Willis'
friends, who scoured the county and talked
with each member ot that body beforo the
court met, Mr. W. seems to be doubtful u
to whether the trial will result in Willis'
conviction, his friends being too powerful
and wealthy." 1 ' ' '
In anticipation of the excursion of
Cairoites to Paducah the News of that city,
calls for an increase of the police iorce there!
Thb Bulletin takes the liberty to express
to the News the compliments of the people
of Cairo, and to assure it that its kind
solicitude for them, expressed in a demand
for extraordinary measures to protect them
during their contemplated visit in thai city
against the universally known and dreaded
Paducah "slugger" and pick pocket is very
highly appreciated. That th Paducah
authorities will do all in their power to pro
tect their visitors it not doubted, but can
tbe News really guarantee ut that such
power will prove sufficient to suppress,
even for a few hours, the law-less element
that hu defied the law and its represeta
tives and held high carnival in that city for
these several weeks or morel If the News
can not give us this assurance we shall con
sider it best to defer our visit to Paducah
until the "epidemic of crime" which the
News asserted some days ago was raging in
that city shall have subsided and tbe au
thorities shall have gained the upper band
of tbe thug element.
An officer of the Wabash road imparted
the following interesting information con
cerning tbe Cairo division of that road, to a
Cincinnati reporter a day or two ago: "Du
ring the past year this division of the road
earned an unenviable reputation, and hard
ly a day passed without a serious accident,
either resulting in loss of life or expensive
damage to property. A few days ago
Messrs. Uoxie and Andrews, the leadiog
managers of the Wabuh system, made a
tour of inspection over tbe Cairo division,
and ordered fifty miles of steel rails to be
laid at once between Cairo and Carmi, this
part of the line being in tbe worst condi
tion. Two new (night) express trains will
be put on between Cairo and Danville be
fore July 1. The pile-driver which is now
at work on a bridge at Lawrencesviue is
expected to arrive here to-morrow to begin
work on tbe Indiana part of the track and
embankment which wu carried away by
the late floods at a point below this city
These repairs will occupy a large force of
men about a month. Work was comment
ed this week on the shops for the Cairo and
Danville divisions at Mt. Cermet, III., and
that place will be the headquarters of tbe
division officers. The Cairo division is do
ing an immense freight business, and with
new rails and additional rolling stock will
take a leading place in the Wabuh system."
