Saturday's rain was not local to Ciiro
and vicinity. It extended as far up as Ma
rion.in Williamson county and fell as heavy
there as here. The fall here during Satur
day night measured two and half inches.
At Marion it was the heaviest rain fall ever
known; it is said by some who were there
Sunday, that water stood from three to four
inches deep over some of the principal
streets of the city.
Mr. A. N.Swayne, of this citv, travel

of a newspaper and out of the window; in
crossing Cacho bridge, near the Mounds,
the back of his hand struck the bridge
with sufficient force to contuse the hand
severely, and cause great pain.

A fourteen-year-old boy named Charley
Brashear was killed on tho Wabash road in
the vicinity of Thirty-fourth street Sunday
ovening. In company witli several other
boys he climbed up the side of one of a train
freight cars that were moving at an ordin
ary rate down the track. But he lost his
hold upon the iron ladder, fell with his
head in front of an approaching wheel
which crushed his skull and scattered his
brains over the track. After Coroner Fitz
gerald and a jury had held an inquest in
in the case, the remains were taken to the

near uommerciai avenue, wiiere many
friends and acquiantances viewed them yes

"Pinch," which is the classic name
given by the officers to that portion of tha
city lying in the neighborhood of Com
mercial avenue and Fifth street, inhabited
almost exclusively by citizens of African
d.iscent, seemed to have been awakened sud
denly Saturday and Sunday nights from a
short slumber. At any rate, "there was a
sound of revelry" "all along the line," an
the officers were kept busy marching oP
fenders off to the cooler. Six or eight ar
rests wero made in all and more aro yet to
come. A nccro named Richard Norris
picked up a club nnd remonstrated with
his better half to tho physical injury of the
latter; and when Officer llogan arrested
him, saught to do likewise with him, but
tho officer was too quick for tho treacherous
Hichard and tapped him one, under tho
chin, which made him change his mind an

were angry with each other to a degree
that only war could appease them and they
went at eachother, sounding their"bazzoo8

of moro importance, which, at this writing
have not come to trial, all
ot which leads naturallv to
tho conclusion that tho blnck
roughs were determined not to be outdone
by their fellows of tho caucassian race, who
figured so disgracefully in various parts of
the city during Friday night. Among thope
nut yet tried is a stato case in which Cora
Hampton is charged with threatening the
lives of one Bowers and family, which was
continued until to-day. John Herviy wns

The Baptist church was crowded to
overflowing Sunday night to witness the
wedding and subsequent baptism of Mr,
W. H. Moore and Miss Phoebe Schwartz.
Evin the hall-way and stair-way and gal

church had been profusely decorated with
flowers and greens and presented a festive
appearance. The wedding took place be

At a meeting of tho committee on po
Hcejail and fire department yesterday af
ternoon, it was decided to recommend to
the council to-night that, in accordance
a resolution offered at the last council meet
ing by Alderman Lancaster, a cistern be
built in the Fifth ward under direction of
the street committee; and also to recom
mend that, in compliance with a resolution
offered at the same meeting by Alderman
McIIale, the city comptroller be authorized
to furnish the assistant chief of the fire de
partment, Mr. Jjseph Steagala, with a
coat designating his rank. This latter ac
tion was taken by the committee after a
heated discussion as to the advisability of
requiring that the garment shall be built
of elastic material and red color of elastic
material, so as to adapt itself to the exigen
cies of the case should the present corpu
lent incumbent of the office named be at
any time displaced by a meagre specimen
of humanity, and of a lively color in order
that the official might be the more readily
recognized on occasions of excitement.
The committee finally decided to leave
these important points to the council or to

to do it, sir, and I did it." That's what
Justus K. Cunningham told us last evening,
when referring to a case of more than ordi
nary Importance, that was pending in Jus
tice Osborn's court up town. It is a ore
of bigamy and adultery, a negress named
Cor Hampton, having sued a negro named
Jno, Collins for adultery and another negress
named Clarisa Biwers, whom Collins mar
ried a few days ago, for bigamy. Mr.
Cunningham said he was the lending at
tomey for the defense anil that City A ttorney
Hendricks and Judge J. J. Bird had been
permitted to assist him, while Mr. W. C.
Mulkr y took care of the prosecution. The
case of the woman for bigamy was on trial
all day yesterday and ended last evening in
acquittal, the prosecution having failed to
prove that cither ot defendant's throe or
four former husbands was htill ri inhabi
tant of this mundane sphere. Case of Collins
for adultery will come up this morning, but
defendant will.of course, also be acquitted,
since Clarisa s acquittal proves her marri
age to Collins to have been Valid.
A nppio of excitement was caused in
police circles yesterday, by the report that
charges of a damaging character against
one of the hold over city police officers had
been informally brought before, the com
mittee on police, Jail and fire deparmont,
at tho instance of one of the gentleman
who were so unfortunate as to he not reap
pointed. According to comphmf, own
statement tho irregularity complained of
occurred something over three months airo
right under his own nose, and to one of an
inquiring turn of mind it does look a little
lingular that complainant should have
kept mum all this timo and should only
break Ins guilty silence when jealousy
prompted him to do so ami then only after
ho himself Is beyond tho jurisdiction of the
city council and no longer accountable to
that body or to tho mayor for any irregu
larity ho might havo been guilty ol during
his official term. But investigation is agood
thing once in a whilo, and if complainant
shall havo tho courage to make his charges
proper form, in tliG form of specifications,
then sn opportunity may after all bo af
forded for bringing to light tho part the
complainant himself took in tho very mat
ter which he unjustly charges as a reproach
upon a certain member of tho present
force. The council and mayor cannot act
upon rumors and reports, and the commit
tee yesterday very properly refused to take
any action in the matter.
THE HARPER HILL UNCONSTITU
TIONAL. The following is an editorial from the
Chicago Legal Adviser concerning the Har
per High license bill, referred to in Satur
day's Uuixktin :
"DISKKUAKD OK Til B CONSTITUTION."
"A reference to the reports of adjudica
tions by the supreme court of this stnte
shows that our legislature has not been
very fortunate, to say the least, in its con
struction of the constitution since the re
vision of 1870 in the exercise of its power in
the passage of acts. Members of tho gener
al assembly s em at times to forget that
there is any such thing as a limitation upon
their official action as law-makers.
''A bill is now before the house of repre
sentatives called the "high license" or
"Harper bill," the provisions of which arc
beginning to attract considerable attention
with reference to the constitution. The
Chicago Times of May 18th, in a well-written
editorial on the subject of this bill,
shows it to be unconstitutional in two im
portant respects : 1. That it contains two
subjects, while, the constitution provides
that no act shall contain more than one
Bubject. 2. That it is not uniform as to the
class upon which the license provided by
the bill operates; in this it seperates malt
liquor dealers from liquor dealers in gener
al as a class and provides a different rate
"To the foregoing objections may be add
ed a third, equally, if not moie serious in
its nature than those pointed out by the
Chicago Times. The bill amends two sec
tions of the present dram shop law, which
sections are not set out in the bill as the
constitution requires. The constitution in
this regard, Art II, Sec. 13, provides in
such cases that 'the section amended
shall be inserted at length in the new act.'
"The sections of the present dram-shop
law which this bill seeks to amend are sec
tions 2 and 3, and which are materially
amended by the provisions of this bill.
"The provision of the constitution last
referred to is an important one, and was in
serted to remedy the evil from the confu
sion caused in our statutes under the con
stitution of which contained no such
restriction. The intention of our present
constitution is that when the legislature
shall proceed to pvs an act on any given
subject upon which there is an existing
law, tliev shall, instead of proceeding by
an act entirely independent ol the existing
law, engralt the new provision desired upon
mich existing law. If it relates to matter
ontained in sections of the existing law,
tVn by revising such sections, inserting
therein the new matter, and by setting out
the sectious amended in full.
'The 'Harper bill,' so-called, was in its
original form but an amendment to Section
3 of the dram-shop hw, and instead of be
ing in the form of an independent bill, as
it w is, it should, in obedience to the c in
stitution, have set out the sections amend
"The bill wns afterwards materially
amended, leaving therein little or nothing
of the original, by substituting new matter,
strictly amendatory of Sections 2 and 3 of
the present dram-shop 1 iw, without setting
out the sime.
"Our courts are too frequently called
upon to excuse legislative stupidity in
invasions of the constitution; and while
there hits been much complaint of tho
eniency of tho courts in this regard, it
would seem even to the ordinary mind that
they can find no grounds whatever upon
which to rest an excuse lor so palpable an
infraction of the constitution as proposed
by this bill."
