Tho complaint given voico to in tho
Argus, that unnecessary delay in the deliv

is cauBod by taking the mail down to the
passengur dopot every day and having it
hauled from there by tho baggage wagon to
the poitofflce for distribution, is out of or
der. It comes from persons who nro not
thoroughly iu for mod concerning the matter
of which they complain. For several weoks
back the mails have been regularly taken
from the Illinois Central railroad trains as
they passed by Fourteenth street and con
veyed direct to the office.
A. system of street repairs has been
begun under the immediate direction of
Commissioner Baird, by which all the little
cavities and big cavities, all along all the
streets, are being filled up the uneven
places mado even. The work was much
needed and will be highly appreciated by
lovers of evening drives and by teamsters.
Messrs. Arter and Burton are exerting

which are to adorn tho front panel of the

high and stand forth about four inches.
They will be gilded.
On account of the quietude in railroad
business, the shop of the Cairo division ot
the W., St. L. and P. R. R. has shut down
at Carmi. Forty men were temporarily
thrown out of work. Other divisions of
hte Y., St. L. and P. have been shutting
down from ono to three days out of the
week for tho paBt three weeks, the object
being to cut the expenses down proportion
ately with tho receipts.
The mayor and overseer of the county
poor last evening furnished a poor family

circumstances, that came here from Swit

be met here by a relative, are stopping at
Cairo House, at the expense of the authori
ties, their relative having failed to "turn
The order making the consolidation of
divisions in the Wabash system of roads has
gone forth, and under it the Cairo division
becomes part of the "Eastern Division,"
comprising 1,007.9 miles, with George W.
Stevens as division superintendent, at IV
rue, Ind.; D. G. Moore, (superintendent of
the former Cairo division) as assistant su
perintendent of tho consolidated division at
Cairo; and B. F. Mathias as assistant at
Rautoul, Ills. Tho fact that Mi. Moore is
to remain with us will bo a source of pleas
ure to tho Cairo public.
The frequent, almost dally, rains
which have fallen during the season so far,
have not only hindered agricultural opera
tions but have been a great inconvenience
to tho market gardner in thia city and else
where. While the woeds anal grass have
grown with unusual rapidity it has been
almost impossible to keep the ground un
der proper cultivation. The excess ot
moisture is also operating unfavorably upon
tho fruits, promoting fungoid formations
and consequent rotting and blight. It will
not bo surprising if thero is a largo loss of
pear and apple trees in this manner.
Tho Republicans of Iowa met in state
convention Thursday. The convention was
for prohibition by a large majority, at least
700 out of the 844 delegates having been
chosen with that end in view. Tho platform
was strongly in favor of a protective tariff
and a prohibitory amendment to the con
stitution. The Republicans of Iowa, in the
terse language Judge Hoadlcy applied to
tho Republican party generally, aro the
"champions of taxation as the source of
wealth and of force as tho parent of tem
perauce." Modern Republicanism in Iowa
is doomed, and Elder Gross' prayer will re
ceive another answer in its ignominious
The grand scheme of an excursion over
tho Texas and St. Louis road from Jones
boro, Ark., has fallen through. Mr. Samuel
Burger, who intended to get up tho excur
Bum, did all he could to bring the negotia
tions to a successful issue, but it could not
be done,"becauso tho managers of the road
were suspicious that it was a money-making
scheme on his part, and they said in
their last letter to Mr. Burger, "if there is
any money to he mado we want to make it
ourselves." Mr. Burger did expect to make
money out of tho affair, of course, but only
by selling goods to tho excursionists. He
was willing to pay any reasonable price
asked for tho train, but tho officials refused
to make or consider any offer at all, and
are now, as may bo seen from bills in var
ious parts of tho city, making an effort to
induce a boom in passenger traffic on their
road on tho Fourth, by reducing tho fare
all along tho lino of their road.
- A building boom is innnnent in tho
upper portion of tho city. Sinco the build
ing of tho Singer works and tho rebuilding
of Captain Halliday's saw-mill and box
factory, the Fifth ward has been one of tho
livilcBt in tho city; but thero is a prospect
now that thero is to bo greatly increased
activity there within tho next few months.
ThcSingi r company, whoso works already
cover several acres ot ground, is preparing
to erect another great structure seventy-five
wide by too huudred feet long, to accommo
dato tho demand for jiucrcased storage
room and enlarged manufacturing capacity,
Captain Halliday's saw mills shut down
Friday in order to permit some repairs to
bo made, and some preparations for increas
ing tho box-factory department. The mill
will Btait up again to morrow, A new dry
house, sixty feet wide by one
hundred feet long is to be built;
and several thousand feet of additional
tramway is to be put up, sotuo of which
extending down along Ohio levee to afford
easier means of removing tho offal far
enough away from tho mills, to placea
where it can be utilized. The complete
reconstruction of Messrs. Halliday Bros,
flouring mills is also rapidly approaching
completion. As has been stated before, the
mills are being furnished with an entirely
new grinding apparatus by which flour is
manufactured according to a now process,
quicker and better and cheaper than by
tho old process. Thirty or forty mechanics
have been at work in the mills for several
months, remodeling the mills ami putting
in this new machinery. It U thought that
in a lew weeks more the mills will be ready
to begin operations again on the improved
plan. These several industrial institutions
aro the lite of the upper part of tho city, as
the river and railroad and commerce aro the
life of the lower and central portions of the
city, and the continued and increasing ac
tivity in them is a matter of much rejoic
ing among up-town people.
There was a boom in police business
yesterday, as a natural result ot tho boom
in lawlessness, and tho activity of tho po
lice officers, the eveniug and night before.
In Justice Robinson's court J. W. Scott aud
Sam Gillet, the two negroes who had tun
another young uegro into tho water with a
knife and brick-bats, because ho wouldn't
pay them 80 cents which ho owed them,
were each fined $35 and cost, and sent to
jail for u mouth. Nathaniel Brown, who
"laid for" and shot Frank Stark on Filth
street, to settle some old grudge, was held
to bail in the handsome sum of $500 and
sent to the county jail for s ifo keeping un
til circuit court shall uieet again. Susan
Bullet, a woman with a tongue that is un
usually active and not at all particular au to
the character of its utterances, was lined $5
aud costs for abusive language. In Magis
trate Coming's court Frank Stark, the fel
low who was shot at by Nathan Brown, and
who was drunk and disorderly and interfei
od with Officer McTiguc when ho attempt
ed to take the pistol away from Brown and
arrest turn, was lined $0 and costs, ami
jailed. Jerry llarber, who was accused of
cutting Wash Turner in a row that origin
ated in "Catfish Johnny's" row Saturday
night, was discharged, the evidence of eye
witnesses proving that no probable ground
for guilt existed. Turner is rapidly im
proving. The Argus suggests that "possibly
there may bo a poor man here and thero
along the line" of blocks the owners ot
which are to bear the expense of improve
ments contemplated by tho Linegar bill.
Perhaps the Argus is right; there may bo a
poor man here and there who, not having
the ready money, will have to avail himself
of the ways and means out of tho difficulty
provided by Mr. Linegar's bill expressly
for his benefit, and he will bo the gainer
thereby. Under Mr. Linegar's bill no lot
owner can be so poor as not to be able to
bear his share of the expense of any im
provement contemplated by the bill, unless,
indeed, his property is already mortgaged
for all it is worth, in which case he wouldn't
lose very much to let it go. Or does the
Argus mean to say, that the owuers ot
thirty-nine lots in a block should forego all
the great advantages that would accrue to
them if they raised their property and the
street abutting it beyond the flood line,
simply because the owner of tho fortieth
lot was unablo to share in the blessing,
even under the most favorable circum
stances? This would bo foolish, sentimeut
al twaddle which we believe not even
the Argus could indulge in seriously.
"Possibly a poor man here aud there"
must not be permitted to serve as a barrier
to the present advancement and prosperity,
and the ultimate greatness of a whole city
full of people. In the first place the man
who owns property in our business blocks
where nearly every inch of ground brings a
largo revenue, is not bo very poor that he
can not even pay interest at 6 per cent, on a
thousand dollars or less; and if in twenty
years he can't scrape enough money to
gether, over and above his daily expenses,
to meet this little thousand dollars or less,
ho ought to be mado to sell his property at
a good price to some ono with more energy
and judgment aud economy. And in the
second place, if the owner of any lot abut
ting tho improvement feels that ho can not
bear tho expense, he cau sell his property,
subject to tho assessment, at a greater price
than he could have done if the improve
ment were not to be made, and ho could
find ready sale for it at its full valuo, and
receive cash down or its equivolent. But
the Argus would probably call such a fair
exchange of values "squeezing tho poor
man out of his little property, and confis
cating tho savings of perhaps twenty years."
Tho Argus does have such queer notions at

first complaint of daniiif.'o done to white
suttlcrs by the ovuiflow or tho Mississippi is
contained in a petit ion to thu king of
Franco by the people of KiiskftKkis, 111.,
written in 1725, askintf for s grant ot land
on account of the flood of the previous
year. The itilmbitantH of the village were
driven from their homes and took refuse
on the adjacent bluff. Tho flood of 1814
was still more damainj to the Kaskiis
kians, who were a second tune forced to the
highland). Our honored fcllow-citizcD,
Col. Dun Morriwou, was a riding young man
of Knskuskia ut tho timo ot the latter
without, and abandoned his flooded home
stead and went out, like Noah's dove, in
search of "land," which ho found in abun
dance. Tho flood of 1811 was quite dam
aging, and thu American bottom was en
tirely Biibuiurgod, the settlers in all the
towns and furui-houne8 seeking refuge in
St, Louis and on the adjacent hills. In
1820 the rivor flooded the wholo extent of
the bottom, being at its highest about the
middle ot Juuc. Hut the flood of 1811 whs
thu most memorable. The damage done
by the flood of '41 wan much greater than
that of the previous year. At that time
the American bottom was becoming settled
by small farmers and garduners, and thero
was no sign of a loveu any where to protect
their Holds and houses, Many of their
cabins were carried entirely away by tho
flood, aud it was no uuusual sight to sou a
squatter perched on the roof, of his domi
cile with his dog by his side and a family
of chickens near by, floating along at a
speed of eight miles an hour. Thu destitu
tion of that year, however, was a Hnall
mutter in comparison with the distress that
must inevitably follow the present flood."
