without avail. It is reported that about forty
railroaders went from bore to Mound City
about 0 o'clock last night, with tho pur
pose of taking Howard from jail an
hanging him. A disturbance of a seriou
character was anticipated, but up to thi
hour, 11 o'clock, n news has reached here
and the telephone station at Mound City is

additional fino of fifty dollars and costs,

-Al ready reports of sunstrokes in the
largo cities come in as daily news, which
gives warning that tho heated term has
now fairly begun. As yet no signs ot tho
fatal ulTuet of the heat has appeared among
citizens here, but when tho thermometer
reaches tho nineties it is necessary to be
direful. Men compelled to nerform hard
physical labor are liable to be overcomo
with the heat, while others will bo prostra
ted by reason of undue caroand inattention
to the Uwb of health. With tho blood heat
ed, ice water should bo avoided; and, in
fact, immoderate drinking of cold water
should not bo indulged in during the warm
weather. Carry sun shades when walking,
and then seek the shady tide of tlio street,
Dicbh for comfort solely. Don't fret and
worry, and thereby add to tho discomforts
of tho boat. This will bo an injunction not
difficult to follow, now that tho Fourth of
July is past. With July fully sot in before
the hot weather began, tbero is hope that
it will not bo greatly protta.rted, and that,
with ordinary caution on tho part of tho
people, tho fatalities from sunstroke may tt
least bo limited.
Stories as to tho particulars of tho kill
ing of Mr. Jno. Kane, carpenter on tho Wa
bash road, by a negro section hand or the
same road, at Mound City, on tho 4 tlx in
stant are conflicting. It la certain, howover,
that tho two men engaged in a heated quarrel
on tho way up and camo to physical violotico,
Ksuo drew a pistol and the negro had a
knife, but which drew bis weapon first Is
not kuowa. But the negro succeeded in
wrenching tho pistol out of Kane's hands
and then turned it upon him, shooting him
twice, once in tho forehead which caused
only a skin wound, and once through the
chest. The fact that Kane had. a gash in
bis back leads to the belief that the negro
drew his knife before the former drew his
pistol. The fight occurred in the car when
near Mound City nnd when the train arrived
at the depot the wounded man was taken
into the waiting room and Dr. Casey was
summoned. But nothing could be dotio
for hi in and be died about an hour after
wards. The negro jumped from the tiain
ami satight to escape, but was captured
yesterday morning and is iiow :onfined in
iail at Mound City. His name is Howard
ar.d he liveB at Grand Chain. The murder
ed man is well known hero as a quiet man
and a L'ood workman. Ho boarded for
some time at Mr. Joseph Steagala's and
worked in ditlerent parts of the city at odd
jobs of carpentering. Ho was on his way
to 1'nrmi to do some work on the Wabash
Missouri Republican: "An interest
ing illustration, in a small way, of the
working of high license is furnished in the
town of Mt. Vernon, Illinois, population
o,00U. For several years tho town council
refused to grant licenses for saloons, prefer
ring to adopt the principle of prohibition.
There was not a licensed salocti in the
place, hut the dtug stores and groceries
sold spirits by the Dint to be carried off the
premises and drunk, and it became a prac
tice ai last to sell liquor by the glass to be
drunk behind a partition on tne premises.
Drinking was not arrested, and the only
effect of tho prohibitory system was to de
prive the town of the revenue which li
censes would yield. About six months
ao the council passed a license ordinance
fixing tho fee at $800 a year. One saloon
wns opened, and in two mouths the pro
prietor had made enough money to pay for
bis license aud keep up his establishment
besides, and there was no greater percepti
ble amount of drinking in the place then
than had been before. Two other persons
are preparing to open saloons, making
threo in the town, and this, it is thought,
will be -the limit tor some time to come.
The town treasury will be $2,400 a year
better off than under prohibition, and no
more liquor drunk under one system than
under the other."
In may be cruel now to undeceive
those who entered so heartily into the festi
vities on tho 4th just past, and to tell tiuiu
that they were entirely mistaken in the day
they intended to celebrate; but we feel in
duty bound to tell all about it. The 4lh of
July is not the nation's birthday at all; the
declaration of independence was not sign-
1 on the Fourth of July, and the resolution
leclariug the independence of the colonies
wns passed by the continental congress on
the second of July. William S. Stone, in
the July number of Harper's Magazine,
discusses "the declaration of independence
in a new light." Tho popular conception of
tho revered document, to which Mr. Stone
appropriately alludes as "a shrine almost of
worship at the present day," is that it was
drawn up in solemn anil stately form, and
after being duly submitted to the inspec
tion of the august body of delegates, wa3
signed by each of them with becoming dig
nity fan I impressiveness. "Nothing," it
would seem from Mr. Stone's article, "could
be further from that which actunlly took
place. Very few of the delegates, if indeed
any, signed the original document on the
4th, and none signed the present one now
in Independence hall, for the very good
reason that it was not then io existence."
The i'net is, very little, seems so be known
about the original Declaration adopted on
the 4th of July, 1770, and it was either lost
or destroyed. Congress itseli'gave tbo mat
ter slight attention at tho time, attaching
premier importance to the resolution passed
to days before, declaring the united colo
nies free and independent states, and ab
solved I rum allegiance to the British crown.
This was the real declaration of indepen
dence, and July 2 rather than July 4 is tho
actual natal day of tho republic; but
tho pibsago of tho resolution of indepen
dence was not mado public until tho formal
declaration bad been prepared, adopted
and read to tbo people. But to return to
tho signing of the declaration. Mr. Stone
shows that tho present venerated document
was ordered engrossed by congress July 19,
1770. The engrossed parchment was pre
sented August 2, and delegates who were
then present signed it. Many were absent,
and some did not sign for a considerable
time afterward. Matthew Thornton, of
New Hampshire, signed it in November,
when ho was first adinitted-ho had not
been present at the passage of the original.
Thomas McKoan, of Delaware, did not
sign until January, 1777. In fact, tho en
grossed document camo to boa sort of test
oath, which all members wcro required to
sign before entering congress. As evidence
of this littlo importance attached to sign
ing the first declaration, Mr. Stono relates
that though Robert U. Livingston of New
York, was one of tho fivo that reported tho
declaration yut ho did not sign it, unless
hit signature was lost with the original
document. Mr. Stono also reproduced a
letter from Thomas McKean ot Delaware,
written in 1813, stating the facts substan
tially as hum given, and adding that among
the names subscribed to the present doclarr
atlou aru those of Mr. Heed, who voted
against it, and seven others, whom ho men
