A conference was had yesterday be
tween President Whitehouse and Superin
tendent Hamilton and the council joint
committee concerning the St. Louis and
Cairo railroad matter. But, though the
meeting had been looked forward to with
high hopes of arriving at a settlement, no
thing could be done, simply because Presi
dent Whitehouse was not prepared to act
and didn't know exactly what he wanted.

or rail, bo that it is more convenient for
litigants in any of tho other counties com
posing this judicial circuit, to attend a trial
here, than it would be to attend it in any
of the other counties. One or two of tlieso
cases ended in a mistrial on insignifi
cant points, which will bring them up at s
future term of the court and probably put
this county to the same expense again. It
seems that the laws governing change, of
venue from counties is not quite as fair as
it should be; that it should make the coun

the greater portion or all of tho expense of
the trial of any case.

was rendered in the case of Sinah Reeve

The Wabash surprised Mr. Barnum
and in the same degree delighted him by
the time made in taking his four trains
from St. Louis to Chicago. He was anxi

NO IDLE LOGS.
KEPoHTEU BY SOT. BLUFF.
"There must be government in all society.
Sheep have their bell wether, and flocks of
geese their leader. Russia has her Czar,
New York her John Kelleys, and we, sir,
havo our business meeting."
So discoursed, in words of wisdom, Sgt
Hornblower to Sgt. Blank, as they wended
their way to tho residence of Sgt. on
Seventh street, where a meeting of tho N.
I. L. was to be held; and Sgt. Blank gazed
with awe ami veneration upon the Apollo
like features of this great "leader in socle
ty" in "novel, busy Cairo." To be sure,
Sgt, II. when ho got started ou a subject
was somewhat given to riding his hobby
(horse) too long; but this has been a weak
ness.of even the greatest inin
It was a very stormy evening, aud thoro
was a very small attendance of members ot
the N. I. L, not more than a quorum be
ing present. The president being still ab
sent In tho east, the vice-president Lt. Puff
in full uniform, took the chair. He critl-
led severely the absentees, and said it would
be well If those mouthers followed the
ample of a rival organization, in which "a
goodly number showed their high appreci
ation of tho entertaluments of tho club and
their loyalty to it by coming out (?) in spito
of the wind and rain." The "slickness" of
this speech was greatly applauded. In lieu
of excuses, a contribution of thirty-two
cents was received from four absentees,
who are, no doubt, blotcd bond holders.
There was no unfinished business to be
taken up. St. Hornblower then asked
that Sgt. Lily he called to the chair, and,
this having been done, ho moved that inas
much as tho president had so kindly enter
tained the club, a vote of thanks bo tender
ed Lt. Puff for the very enjoyable evening
we had May 25th" and that suid vote of
thanks be engrossed, signed by each mem
bur of the club, neatly framed and present
ed to him. This motion received the
hearty approval of every member present
with the exception ol Sgt. Dasher, who here
arose, aud offered as a substitute the follow
ing : That the treasurer be ordered to pur
chase a large cabinet, with an arrangement
of movable minors; that life size figures ol
the members be taken in wax (on the plan
of Mrs. Jariey's Wux works), and placed
therein; these figures to be illuminated by
a smile of placid contentment at tho mag
nificient "spread"' f urnished by the presi
dent upon the evening referred to; and
calling attention to the fact that, by the ar
rangement of movable mirrors, he cculo
have ever before hitn the gratifying specta
cle presented by the gentlemen upon that
memorable occasion. Here a hot debate
arose between several ot the memliers as to
the propriety of such a course. Sgt. Horse
man spoke as follows: "The N. I. L. is
the leading power in society here. No
eastern city has any ciuo surpassing im
one in literary culture, musical talents
and brilliancy. Capt. Broadtiead, a leader
in all enterprise, is our president." It be
hooves us, therefore, to take the course of
action which will best sustain this charac
ter in the eyes of the public. We don't
want any "unhitches." It was finally de
cided that a soft-glove contest should take
place between Sgts. 'Lily and Swell, the
winner to decide wtiicu ot tuese propos,
tions should be accepted. A minute-and-a-half
was 6pent in coming to a decision,
Sat. Swell being knocked out, Sgt. Lily
then presented a form of imitation aud
ticket to be used for the presentation of the
drama about to come ou the boards. He
said the form of imitation was original with
himself and he would iufoim the club that
the color would be sipe-water-green. Both
were approved, aud these will be the chips
which the friends of the club will be oblig
ed to ante iu order to witness the presenta
There being nothing further ot interest
to be discussed, the business meeting was
adjourned. The president then said that,
as they had some time still at their dispo
sal and the crowd was small and select,
they "might amuse themselves as they
pleased; which they proceeded to do, by
playing some of the latest games of the day
Great was the merriment caused by playing
"Simon says, Thumbs up," "Stage-coach,"
Blindmau's Buff," "Leap-frog," etc. The
fun grew fast and furious; and, long after
the time that good little boys Bhould bo in
bed, the members of the N. I. L. might be
seeii wending their way home, sieging with
voices like the makings of bull-frog,
"Kaln, rain, no away,
Come astalu another day."

TUE CHALLENGE ACCEPT ED.
I suffered so from nervous shock,
When your bold menace met my eye,
That I became weak in the knees,

That you should really feel aggrieved.
By aught mv nnakllled hand has penned

That the Club called "Meal League,"

And that no other can exist J
If the nboa flu why-put lt on.

And, as the challenged party, claim
That lime, and weapons, too,
It Is my prlvllpgu to name.
Though you're a man of great reuown,

I'll no undue advantage take
Which my petition can confer.
The time I came Is miunioht, on
Fourth of July; the place shall bo
The Mississippi levee, and
Distance, one thousand yards front me,
The weapons shall bo catapults;
The ammunition, fish balls; we,
In making these arrangements, cast
No slur on Leaguer's bravery.

Would not dlttlnre cither; aud

You see, no hah wonld It create :
And further merit would lt have
No Mi would It leave desolate.
