vagrant was a negro named Henry Ander

what occurred in the good Republican town
of Benton, not in Georgia, Lousiana or Mis

time ago a colored man went to Benton to
pursue his calling as a barber. So far as
known he conducted himself in a proper
manner and attended strictly to his own
business. Notwithstanding this a number
of ruffitius, in which that place unhappily
abounds, took it upon themselves to post a
threatening notice upon his shop door,
warning him to leave in three days. Not
being willing to risk himself among audi a
class of people he hastily decamped."

source of endless confusion and delay. Dr.

The Decoration Day ceremonies at
Mound City yesterday were a complete
fail'Tj owing to the bad weather. Hon. J.
M. McCartney, attornoy general of the
state, had been engaged to deliver the ora
tion; tho people ot Mound City had com
pleted extensive preparations for the enter
tiinment of many guests and there would
have been a grander observance of the day
than before, but for the inclement weather.
But in spite of rain and mud many
people came down and went up, but re
mained in the town after having taken a
drive out to tho cemetery and found the
ground wut and muddy everywhere. The
hacks and saloons made nearly all the
money and tho ice cream dealers looked on.

The following statement of the amounts
assessed and appropriated for the expenses
of the city government since 1873 inclu
sive, will not only prove interesting reading,
but will be a severe slap over the mouths of
those wholmvo been croaking about constant
ly increasing taxation in the city : 1873, $00,
084.70; 1874, $71,213 00; 1878, $01,790.00;
1870, $08,103.40; 1877, $33,000.00; 1878,
$13,473.00; 1879, $42,000.00; 1880, $58,
200.00; 1881, $00,050.00; 1883, $70,150.00.
The reason why the figures for the years
1877 and '78 are much less than for pre
vious or subsequent years, is that during
Uiobo three yoars no interest was paid on
tho city's bonds, and in tho year 1879 when
tho leveo was also small, a balance of $!10,
000 that had accumulated in the city trea
sury by reason of such failure to pay inter
est was used In addition to tho figures given
abovo for that year. Thus it will appear
that, although the city has boon compelled
to make several times within tho lost foW
years boiuo vory heavy extraordinary ex
penditures, tho tax levee aud appropriations
are about the samo as In former years if

yields, but also is continually improving
bis stock, by adding to his flock of shoep a
pair of pure bred Cotswolds, and to his
herd a thoroughbred bull. Mr. Fink says
that the farmer who puts in 40 50 acres of
wheat and attends to it properly, will
make moro clear money in the long run
than the farmer who sows, double that
acreage in the U9U1 manner. Mr. Fink
knows what ho is talking about, and wo
believe the above fact is gradually dawn

southern Illinois. We would add, summer

NO IDLE LOGS.
REPORTED DV 8UT. BLUFF.
A regular meeting of the N. I. L. was
held Friday evening, May 35tb, at the resi
dence of Sgt. Dasher, on Ninth street. The
president being absent on a trip east, First
Lt. Puff, in full uniform occupied the chair.
The roll call was responded to by all the
members except Capt. Broadhead, who tele
graphed his excuses aud regrets. The min
utes of the last meeting were theu placed
under a powerful microscope, and viewed
by every member of the club; no error
beiug discovered, they were unanimously
approved. Under the head of unfinished
business came up Sgt. Uornblower's excuse,
presented at the last meeting, in which he
requested pecuniary aid to the amount of
two dollars, from the club. After a heated
discussion, during which the applicants for
relief sat blushing to tho roots of their hair
but as dumb as oysters, it was finally
agreed, in order to put these poor young
men out of their misery, that a collection
Bhould be taken up for their benefit. After
some skirmishing among the members, one
dollar and ninety-five cents was raised. Sgt.
liornblower then rose, and, in a voice
trembling with emotion, thanked tho club
for its liberality toward himself and friend,
and stated that he believed, with a little
outside help, they would be able to raise
the balance. The report of the committee
on halls was next received. It was to the
effect that they had examined as to the
feasibility of producing the play, as con
sidered at the last meeting, and found, after
due deliberation, that as there were im
mense quantities of talent for the Drama in
other clubs they were satisfied that the
same existed in the N. I. L. ; all that was to
be done was to get it out. In regard to
tho Cotton Compress as a place for produc
ing tho play, they had interviewed the own
er of this building, who, by a rare stroke of
good fortune happened to be in town. The
gentleman, with his usual generosity, not
only tendered the club with the use of the
building, sans cost, but made a liberal do
nation to defray the expenses incident in
the preparation of the Compress for this
great event. The report was listened to
with attention, and the club unanimously
concluded that, as the cost would be nil,
the N. I. L. would be ablo financially to
take advantage of the magnificent offer
tendered them, aud it was resolved to pro
duce the play at an early date. Sgt. Swell
then aroso and moved a vote ot thanks
(and thanks in large quantities) to the
Chief Engineer of tho Cotton Compress
tor his generous action iu more than meet
ing the wishes of the club, and facilitating
tho production ot a play now in process of
preparation. There being no otbgr business
to bo brought before the club, a motion to
adjourn was carried also in large quanti
ties. As the members were about to depart,
each one thinking to himself that the meet
ings were getting to bo very tame affairs,
the presi dent stated that in consequence of
the presence of a great church dignitary in
tho town, he bad concluded to make that
evening immortal, by giving a supper to
tho club, in honor of that noted personage;
and ho therefore invited them to adjourn en
masse to his house, which, after mtlch coax
ing on tho part of Lt. Puff, they concluded
to do; having taken into consideration the
fact that the newspapers had not reported
any grand free lunches to ho given that
evening. Arriving at tho residence of the
president, tho club were not ouly introduced
to His Grace, but to several Elders of diff
ereut denominations. After some timo spent
in pleasant conversation, the company sat
down to a grand banquet that had been
prepared tor them. It was served in ologant
stytc, aud consisted of tho following dishes:
Roosters on tho half shell.
Clear Soup, (a la slpo-water).

MISSISSIPPI RIVER COMMISSION.
The appointment of Gen. Ferguson of
Mississippi to succeed Capt. Eads on the
Mississippi river commission is, as we have
already said, a disappointment to the upper
portion of the great valley. The appoint
ment appears to have been made from par
tisan motives. There is indeed no other
ground upon which the action of the presi
dent can be rationally accounted for. We
can but hope Gen. Ferguson will prove a
faithful and capable man, but to pass over
a gentleman of his own party, and of such
conspicuous qualifications as those pos
sessed by Col. Flad, to select an officer of
the confederate army, can have but one
meaning. The one a Republican, conspic
uous for his devotion to tho same cause in
which the president won his first distinc
tion, the other an adherent to principles
which Mr. Arthur professed to regard with
abhorrence, it is impossible to separate the
choice made from the desire, first of all, to
subserve party purposes. The eminent
qualifications of Col. Flad left nothing to
wish for in that respect and nothing to
doubt. His pre-eminence as an engineer
and his valuable experience were considera
tions which ought to have had the greatest
weight. In the whole range of available
men there was not 'one whose practical
knowledge and professional attainments
surpassed his. In the work of constructing
the bridgo in front of this city he was the
right arm of Capt. Eads, and in the ab
sence of the chief was the directing genius
of that grand enterprise. But the law of
compensations may operate in this as in
other matters. While the president forgets
or ignores a powerful tdement which has
been the backbone of the Republican party in
passing over so distinguished a representa
tive as Col. Flad to select a confederate in
Mississippi, he may find that be has made
the kind of mistake which mere schemers
often fall into. It is impossible that such
an official act as this can fail to arouse a
deijreo of indignation among those who
see themselves rated as allies no longer
necessary to bo considered in the dispensa
tion of honors, or at all events to be put
aside when it is necessary to conciliate the
favor of tucli as Chalmers and Mahone.
Another thing: It is well known that it
was understood when the Mississippi river
commission was provided for, that it was to
be organized on tho basis of a division of
the honors and duties between civilian en
neers and West Pointers. Tho appoint
ment of Gen. Ferguson gives 8 preponder
ance to the latter element, and therefore
violates tho spirit of the whole business.
When Capt. Eads resigned, fairness should
have suggested, if not dictated, that one
should have been chosen with reference to
locality sod attainments as nearly represent
ing him as possible.
