ference to the road's proposed new entrance
into the city. No conference was bad be
tween thorn and the council joint committee
and none was asked by them ; but they will
remain in this city until about 10 o'clock
this morning and it may be that before they
leave something further will be done in the
way of settling the differences between the
city and the railroad company.
There were a number of distinguished

In the circuit court yesterday the case

in the evening, and at this writing no ver
dict has been rendered. After this the caso
of Mr. Mahaffy vs. The Wabash, St. Louis
and Pacific railroad company waa to have
been taken up, but owing to the serious ill
ness of a brother of the complainant, who
la an important witness in the case, it was
continued to a future day. In this case
complainant sues for five thousand dollars
damages on account of the killing of her
husband on the defendant's road tome years

for tho complainant and Mr. S. P. Wheeler

Tuesday night's meeting of tho Ideal
League nffordod the usual amount and
character of entertainment for all who at
tended, and nmirly every member was
present. The business meeting was very
short and of importance only in that Mr.
Loekridge w in voted in as a member, aud
that the committee appointed to select a
place for tho presentation of the drama,
"Engaged," reported that it had secured
the opera bouse stage, which repoTt was
accepted and unanimously concurred in.
The usual literary and musical programme
was dispensed with and the president, Mr.
Parsons, entertained the club after the man
ner of the inobt accomplished host. Music
and dancing was succeeded, about 10
o'clock, by a rich feast, the principal com
ponent parts of which were ice cream,
strawberries and cake.
An event of no little interest and im
portance yesterday was a ball and party
given by two social amusement organiza
tions at Temperance hall on Eighth street.
The German dancing club and the Ideals
combined their efforts to make the event a
pleasant one and a success as to atten
dance. It was given in honor of three
young ladies who have been visiting friends
in this city for some time and who areabout
to depart for their respective homes, name
ly, Miss Steyer, of Golconda, who has been
on a short visit to Miss Bettie Korstneyer,
Miss Keyser, of St. Louis, who has spent
several weeks with Miss Amanda Fields,
and Miss Bishop who has beon a guest of
Mr. and Mrs. Parsons. These young ladies
made many friends among the young peo
ple of tho city during their short stays and
were given a fitting farewel by these friends,
which they will probably recall with pleas
ure for a long time.
County Judge Robinson began yester
day to consider the delinquent tax list ; but
the work goes forward very slowly, because
the attorneys in the cases in which objec
tions are offered are nearly all engaged be
foro the circuit court which has precedance
over the county court. One of the import
ant cases in which objections are filed, per
haps the most important one, is that of the
Wabash railroad company, and the princi
pal ground of its objection is that the coun-
ty assessor has assessed land and property
belonging properly to thu right-of-way of
tho company, and which had been
already assessed by the state audi
tor and the taxes extended on
the railroad books, so that the same proper
ty had been assessed twice. The amount
involved in this case is said by Collector
Hodges to be between three and four thou
sand dollars, and the court will probably
decide this case to-day. ' ' ;
Under the head of "Licensed' to Marry,"
in yesterday morning's St. Louis e
puUican, appear the names of Mr. Henry
Bi.ird and Miss Grace Davis. The groom
wiis our own Henry, of the Western Union
telegraph office, and the bride was an es
timablo young lady operator in a St. Louis
office, with whom the sly Henry had been
carrying on a sly courtship by electricity,
uuknown to his friends here. Tho mar
riage took place at St. Louib on Tuesday,
and yesterday morning Mr. and Mrs. Baird
arrived hero to take up their temporary re
sidence with tho parents ot the groom.
Henry is one of tho steady young men of
tho city, who, against difficulties in the
faiie of which muy others would have be
come discouraged, has worked his way into
an important position which he haa filled
to the satisfaction of tho general publio
and of tho groat corporation that employes

A few citizens, brother Potter among
them, seem to bo and to have been for some
time, very anxious to have the city council
take some action under the bills recently
passed by tho Illinois legislature at the in
stance of Representative Linogar, and they
have, by implication ,lf not openly, lectured
the council for failing to do so. These gen
tlomon Bhould be patient a little while lon

The council would therefore be a little too
previous, to put it mildly, were it to even
prepare for any action undor thorn. Aa to
'what action ought to bo taken, or when, or
if at all, are questions which are not yet
"before the house" and upon which a full
and fair discussion will be in order at the

they may bo considerably more so. "It is

Some important improvements have
been made inside as well aa outside of the
Mound City cemetery within the last few
months. Chief among tho internal improve
ments is a very substantial and beautiful
platform, constructed in part by Mr. Henry
Stout of this city, and but just completed
after threo weeks' labor. It is forty teet
long by twenty wide. Its foundhtion is
brick, about six feet high, its platform is of
stone, covered with a thick layer of rich
earth and a carpet of bright L'reen crass
about four inches long, which is clipped
every few days. A handsome iron railing
surrounds the platform and a number of or
namental brick piers, eleven feet high, sup
port a stout frsme-work over this platform,
which frame-work is to bo covered with
irgreen vines and serve as a protection
from the sun and rain to the band, speakers
and distinguished personages who may at
tend the ceremonies there on Memorial
Days. Massive stone steps lend up to the
platform. The monument has also been
made more attractive by various additions,
such aa relics of the last war and mottoes
and other inscriptions. It is intended also
to tear down the present buildings within
the cemetery and ask for an appropriation
to erect a new and larger and better ap
pointed lodge, brick barn and tool bouses,
etc. The road needs now only to be gravel
ed and preparations to do this work are
now in progress. The gravel will be spread
on in two layers and each rolled well with
a roller weighing several thousand pounds
and drawn by four horses. There will be a
walk for pedestrians on either Bide of the
gravel road, which will be protected from
water by an ingenious system of drainage.
A visit to the cemetery would be interest
ing to any one.

A BLOODY AFFRAY.
Last evening about 4:30 o'clock, when
the steamer Three States made her last trip
to Missouri, a white man named James
Healy, who lives at Bird's Point, got aboard
to come to Cairo. The boat went as utual
from Missouri to Kentucky and at the lat
ter landing another white man, named
"Dug" Dietrich, came aboard twith his part
ner, a young man,, and asked the
fare for a round trip "just for the fun of the
thing." Being told, he paid the fare for
himself and the young man and the boat
shoved out. Before the boat had left the
landing Dietrich met Healy, called him to
account for an old offense, and attacked
him. A fight with fists ensued which was
soon stopped however by Captain Hacker,
and the two men parted for the time. The
boat shoved out for Cairo,
but had gono only a short
distance when the two men were again en
gaged in a fight, this time with knives, and
they cut each other so severely that both
were thought to be mortally wounded when
they were parted. Healy had three deep
cuts: one across the muscle of the left arm,
nearly to the bone, and two m the small of
the back, in each of which several fingers
could be laid. Dietrich had one ugly cut
in the left breast and a stab in the abdomen
In which a knife-blade was broken off. j
Both men weie bleeding profusely and
when conveyed each back to bis homo, were
barely able to stand up.
By eye witnesses of the whole affair the
blame is laid principally upon Dietrich,
who is said to bo a no-account sort of fellow,
having no particular place of residence.
During the late flood Dietrich made up a
party of men of as little scruple as himself,
and in skiffs raided some of the flooded
houses in the Missouri bottoms. Healy,
with another party of of men, met Dietrich
and gave him a good thrashing. Since
then Dietrich has held a grudo against
Healy and threatened to get even. It is
understood by 'those who witnessed last
evening's bloody affair, that he came aboard
the boat and Bought out Healy for the ex
press purpose ot carrying out this threat.
The young follow who was with Dietrich
and supposed to have been Invited by him
to come along and see the glorious manner
in which he would chatise Iloaly, came
over from East Cairo after dark to inquire
how Healy was and to get a surgeon, saying
that Dietrich was in a very bad condition.
