An old white man named Morriss, a
native of Hardin county, Ky., who has been
in the city fur some time in a state of .idle
deas, and caught in several little acts of dis
honest by business men on Eighth street,
was yesterday sent out of town under the
vagrant act with a penalty of one hundred
dollars, inflicted by Magistrate Comings,
hanging over him. One of his little acts
of lawlessness was the bold capture of a
cake of Limberger cheese from the stand
of Valentine Resch, on Eighth street, which
he hid in his bosom as ho walked boldly
into the store to ak some foolish question
entirely foreign to the matter under his
vest. But he was seen in tho act by par
ties outside and he cume to grief.
Carbundale bas had another murder
"the foulest, most brutal that has been per
petrated in Carbondnlo" says the Free
Press. In Carbondale, where moral in
fluences are supposed to be much stronger
thsn here, murders are rapidly getting to
be monotonous. Cairo, which is very
generally and very unjustly denounced as a
place where vicious influences hold full
sway, has not been startled by any crime
greater than a burglary or a robbery fur
these three or four years back, and in Ibexe
caies the guilty parties were most always
brought to speedy and just punishment.
A report of the proceedings of last
night's council meeting appears elsewhere
ia this issue; but it omits one interesting
feature of the meeting, namely, the little
farewell address of Mayor Thistlewood. At
the conclusion of the business and just be
fore the ruoiiou to adjourn the mayor stated
his reasons for releasing certain prisoners
from thecity jail, and this done.he took occa
sion to thank the members of the council
for the uniform courtesy shown hira and to
express the hope that, as ho bore only tho
kindest feelings towaid all members who
had served with him, they would in turn
feel equally friendly toward him. He had
served in the council for nine years, begin
ning as alderman; three of those who were
members of the council with him had died
and of the present members there was not
one who was a councilman when he was.
He again expressed his thanks for past
friendship and his hope for a continuance
of the same an 1 then the council adjourn
ed to meet aain to-night with Mayor Hal
liday ia the chair.
-Yesterday Mr. Wm. Kvrlgnn, gonnral
superintendent of the Iron Mountain road,
arrived in the city. The ohjuct of hia visit
is to confer with Superintendent Mo;ro, of
the Wabash road, with reforonce to the con
solldation of tho offices of the two compa
nies here. Mr. Moore was out of the city
and was not cxrocted to return until nine
o'clock last night. Mr. Karrigan went up
the road to meet Mr. Moore and both came
down together. What the result of tbe con
ference was (if any was held last night)
will not be known until to-day some time.
It is understood, however, that Mr. U. II.
Milburn, agent of tho Iron Mountain, will
TUESDAY MORNING, MAY
be agent for both roads; that one or the
other of the two passenger agents will be
dispensed with; that about six of tbe Wa
bash freight office crew will be dismissed
and that tho general offices of this division
of the Wabash will be removed to Mt. Car
mel with Mr. Moore at their head. Mr.
Karrigan takes charge of tbe Wabash road
here to-day and the details of any and all
changes made or to be made will probably
be known by to-night.
THE ODD FELLOWS' EXCURSION TO
The Odd Fellows of this city celebrated
their sixty -fourth anniveraary on Tuesday in
grand style, giving an excursion to Jones
boro, theroby affording an opportunity to its
members and families to enjoy a day of
rare pleasure. A train of five or six cars
left tho city at eight o'clock accompanied
by Prof. Storers band. All along tbe route
delegations joined tbe excursion, complete
ly filling the cars. The country we pasid
through looked beautiful in its spring dres?,
the hills of Anna and Jonesboro, were cov
ered with a carpet of green, that was indeed
pleasant to look at, tbe fruit trees were
loaded with blossoms, the wheat looked
fine. On arriving at Anns while waiting
for the procession to form, tho people were
highly entertained by viewing tbe European
hotel which was profusely decorated with
flags banners and emblems of Odd Fellow
ship. Mr. Frank Harris, proprietor of this beau
tiful bouse, displays an artistic taste in the
arrangement of his crockery, plants, foun
lai ie, etc. A curious feature was a rubber
ball kept in perpetual motion in midair by
a jet of notes from a fountain, never onco
being forced from its line of travel. Another
attractive feature was a minature log settle
ment which afforded much amusement,
several feet of ground was taken up by this
"far western home" surrounded by a rough
fence. Tho log house with the smoke
pouring from the chimney, "the old oaken
bucket that hung in he well" the outhouses,
poultry, the tired oxen with their perfect
yoke, the family scattered on the grounds
and above all the old covered wagon filled
with household goods moving to the far
west was a novelty indeed and did honor to
the brain that planned it; but mine host
knew "how to set a good supper as well as
to mako curiosities.
After all the trains had arrived from tbe
north, the long procession formed, headed
by the Cairo Lodge, and Prof. Storers band
which was composed of seventeen pieces.
This band covered itself with glory, its n"t s
were very sweet, the procession clothed in
handsome regalia marched through the
principal street under an arch composed of
the three golden links, tbe open hand, snd
arrows, all emblems of I. O. of O. F. As
the long line wound over the green bills
amid the waving of banners, pranc
ing of horses, clanking of swords
and gleaming of spears, to the soul-stirring
ruuiic from fine cornet bands, it was a
sight to be remembered.
The Cairo delegation carried the hand
some silken banner presented by our
''Daughters of Rebecca" lodge on Wednes
day evening and of which we are justly
On arriving at the fair grounds tbe pro
cesaion opened ranks and the several
lodges marched through to the orators
stand. Prominent among the delegations
were those of the "Encampment" clothed
in royal purple and gold, with handsome
swords and chapeaus with long waving
On arriving at the stand, tho Cairo band
eulertaiued the immense throng with de
licicus music, then a prayer was offered
followed by a hearty welcome fromo Judge
Crawford. "The orator of the day was then
introduced, Grand Master Keller, who
made an eloquent address upon the prog
ress of Odd Fellowship, after which every
body was invited to partako of the free
dinner provided by the good people of Anna
One of the committee of Jonesboro
kindly informed us that one thousand
loaves of broad had been contributed,
thirteen dozen chlckena,also any amount
of lump, turkeys, cakes, slaw tc. We
venture to say no ono left the grounds hun
gry. Carriages and hacks all day were
busy carrying the poople to visit the In
sane hospital, pottery, eto. Unique mem
entoes were brought home from the latter
place by many,
A ball at the Anna opera house ended
the festivities of the day, but the greater
number of Cairoites returned home oo the
0 p.m. train'
We think all who attended tbe excursion
will join with us in thanking the Odd Fel
lows of Cairo for affording us one day' sun
iuterrupted pleasure, no accident whatever
occurred, and we do say the committee in
charge knew their businoss well.
Mr. Henry Baird, of tho tslegraph office,
is down with pnucmonla, His condition
was dangerous Saturday, and Sunday, but
improved some yosterday.
Judge J. II. Mulkey ot Metropolis was
in the city yosterday, on his way to Mt.
Vernon to bold court. On bis way up he
will stop at Ashley, a small place above Da
Quoin, to soo his aged father who was re
ported not well.
Mrs. Paris, the venerable mother of
Mrs. P. II. Howard of this city, contem
plates a visit toEurope within a few days
and desires Miss Katie Howard to accom
pany her which the latter will probably do.
