There are thirty-one professional baso

about three hundred and fifty players. The
salaries of these professionals range from
twelve hundred to twenty-five hundred dol

for eight month's work. One of the best
players in the Chicago nine was a short
time ago working in paper mill on a salary
of ten dollars a week. He this season re-
fused to play for twenty-five hundred dol
lars, because he could do better.

The bid boy nuisance prevails in some
parts of the city to an extent that is a con
stunt annoyance to citizens. Mr. Dus
Rocher uptown had to make complaint at
police headquarters yesterday at the capers
which a crowd ot unruly youngsters hBve
been cutting of late on and about Lis prem
ises. They have an ugly habit of going
through bis garden leaving the gates opon
and picking flowers and vegetables as they
pass through. But worse than this, last
Suuilay fifteen or twenty of them stripped
themselves of their clothing and by turns
took baths in tho river In front of Mr. D's
house and crowded onto a hand-car and
rodo up and down tho St. Imis & Cairo
track in front of his house, in a rude state.
Mr. D. will turnish tho officer witb the
names of the offenders and then there will
bo "music in tho air."
Anont Tub Bulletin's lutimation that
Mr. Linegar would probably soon bo in
ducod to deliver several addresses upon tho
advisability of filling portions of tho city as
contemplated by his Boveral bills, the
Springfiold Journal remarks i "An address
from Mr. Linegar on the subject of 'filling
up' would doubt loss bo both eutertaining
and instructive." Indeed, tho Journal Is
right. An address by Mr. Linegar upon any
subject would be interesting, as a matter of
course, and upon the subject filling up a
city with dirt, it would be doubly interest
ing to the people of Cairo. But the Journal
evidently hiuts at "filling up" something
else with something else, and in this direc
tion tho unny practical illustrations ot Re
publican statesman on the occassion of the
Bradwell-McNally contest and several
other occasions, would beat any lecture
upon the subject all hollow.
It is stated that tho wines, flour and
canned goods, which form leading exports
of California, are already beginning to ar
rive in New Orleans iu considerable quan
tities, with every prospect of building up a
large permanent trade, while shipments of
eastern goods to California also take the
New Orleans route, uot so much on account
of cheaper freight as of a better and more
reliable time card. The entire lino lrom
New Orleans to tho Pacific is under a single
management, which is not the case with
the Union Pacific route. Louisianans are
greatly encouraged at the trado prospect.
Then, too, a northern syndicato has recent
ly purchased 800,000 acres of swamp lauds
in tho state. Thesu lands have always been
unproductive, but they are susceptible of
drainage, and it is proposed to improve and
sell them off in plantations. Such measures
are important to the welfare of tho state.
An import trade will come in duo time.
A threatened cut-off Boine ten miles
above Memphis, below the foot of Island
40, on tho Tennessee side, is attracting
considerable attention now, particularly of
the saw-mill and railway interests of the
city. It has been noticed at every high
stage of water during the past three years
that the current was pressing against that
shore, which, if it succeeds in eradication
will lead the main channel of the river
through a series of old beds into Wolf river,
near tho present sito of tho Nvtter-works,
destroying large areas of land and throwing
the river into its old bed occupied forty
years ago. This will take in the old navy
yard, which is now thickly built up with
saw-mills, oil-mills, cotton compresses, rail
way tracks and other property. A visit by
several prominent citizens and newspaper
reporters was made and three breaks were
discovered making rapidly and giving good
cause for alarm. While much loss of prop
ty and capital investments will result, there
are several great advantages to be derived.
The threatened cut-off back of Il-ipcfield
will be averted; the distance to Island 40
will be lessened one-half; the Memphis
water-works will take water from the Mis
sissippi instead ot trom vvoit river, ami
other important changes between Memphis
and Centennial Island are sure to result.
A short time since complaint wis
made that tho work done below this point,
on tho New Madrid, Mo., reach, by the
Mississippi river coirmission was very in
sufficient and not at all equal, either in char
acter or extent, to what should have been
done w ith the amount of money net aside
for it, $300,000,. This complaint was of a
serious nature; it came from parties inter
este 1 in the work and was published in the
St. Louis papers. But it appears that the
complainant did not take the trouble to
learn the reason why little or no work had
been done at or near New Madrid. The
work at this point, and in fact from this
city down to Island No. 40, is under the
supervision of Captain Knight of this city,
who should of course know all about it;
and it comes from him indirectly, that the
Mississippi River Commission turned tho
$300,000 Bet aside for tho work at New
Madrid, over to the Plum Point fund in or
der that tho work at tho latter place might
not have to bo stopped by reason of tho
failure of the last congress to mako tho
necessary appropriation to continue it. Tbo
commission had a right to do this, of
course, and its action was wise; for in order
to save tho work already douo at Plum
Point it is necessary that there shall bo no
interruption. While this action on tho part
of tho commission will tend to prolong the
operations at Plum Point, it is likely that,
before tho next congress will have had an
opportunity to provide more money, the
work will have been stopped some time on
account of tho lack of money.
