Georgo Wastington Grossback, the

Johnson County Journal: "A medi
cal journal tells of a young man in Ver
mont whoso brains have dried until they
rattle like shot in a gourd every time ho
shakes his head. Two to one he will vote
the 'Democratic Freo Trade Tariff for Rev
enue, for the Exigencies of the Govern
ment only,' ticket." In which case the
young man of Vermont would manifest a
blamed sight more sense than some men
who profess to have big, healthy brains,
and who cry for the burdens imposed upon
them and the public by the war tariff as
infants are said always to cry for pap.
Services at the Methodist church prom
ise to bo of unusual interest to-day. Prof.
Sherwin, ot Cincinnati, is expected to bo
present and conduct them both morning
and night. Al the morning service, which
begins at 11 o'clock, the Prof, will take for
his Bubjoct "Interpretation and Misinter-
pretation of Scripture by the manner of
reading." At 4 o'clock p. m. a mass meet
ing of Sunday Schools will be held, and
and the children will be addressed by the
Prof. It is understood that the evening
service will be a union service of the Pres
byterian and Baptist congregations. The
service will consist of song and scriptural
readings and an address by Prof. Sherwin.
A general invitation Is extended to the pub
lic to attend all the services.
The Johnson County Journal is not en
tirely correct when it says: "After putting
them (the Trade dollars) in
circulation at 100 cents, the bank
ers refused to take them for more than 85.
ThisaBharp practice the bankers are en
gaging in that ought to be set down on by
congress. It stands next to robbery." The
Journal should substitute "the Republican
party" for "the baukers" in tho above. Tho
Republican party in congress Is guilty of
tho "sharp practice" referred to and the
bankers were, in many instances, as much
the victims of it as were the people gen
erally. It seems to us that the people un
derstood this when they sat heavily down
upon those who had perpetrated the fraud,
and elected a Democratic congress. The
Democratic congress will now doubtless
soon "sit down on" the fraud itself.
The excitement among the colored peo
ple at Mound City spoken of in yesterday's
Bulletin, did not manifest itself in Bny
physical violence, but threats were very
freely made and the whites were in fear of
a momentary outbreak of some kind. The
negroes flocked into the city to the number
of about three hundred and moved about
the streets and public places in squads un
til dark when they all suddenly disappear
ed which was taken as proof ot an intended
outbreak. But all remained quiet. Threats
were freely mado against Jailor Painter,
Marshal Rose, a young man named Kittle,
an employo of tho Wabash road, a man
named Marsh, section boss on the road.and
A. B. Gibson, conductor on tho train on
which Kane was killed, and who chased
Howard about half a mile on the night of
tho tragedy. Jailor Painter and Marshal
Ross are unjustly accused of not using all
possible precautions to protect Howard;
young Kittle and the section boss, Wash,
are suspected of complicity with the lynch
ing, because two slodgo hammers used by
the mob were claimed the next day by
Marsh and had been taken from tho station
tool house, of which Marsh and Kittle had
charge; while Conductor Gibson is suspec
ted of connection with tho mob because
aome ono testified before tho coroner's jury
that Bat upon Howard's remains, that he
had seen the features of ono of the lynchers
who favored Gibson. Jailor Paintor and
Marshal Rosb argued with the negroes
and saught to nppeaso them,
protesting that they hat
done all they could to prevent tho lynching
and would do all they could to bring tho
proputrators to justice; young Kittlo left
the city aud came down hero to get out of
the mob's way; ami the city council met,
passed resolutions deploring tho occurrence
and denouncing the actors therein, and
authorized the mayor to offer $200 for the
apprehension of the guilty parties. Iu this
way it was thought that all cause for an
outbreak by the angry negroes had been
removed as far as possible; and this was
evidently the case, for there were no furth
er signs of such a coutiugeucy. Ytsterday
Sheriff Crane was iu tho city with a baud
lull of blank warrants, iu Bearch of the
lynchers, but up to this hour, 11 :80 o'clock
p. in , he lias not made uny arrests. In fact
it would be daugerous to make any arrest
now and confine the prisoner anywhere
near Pulaski county. The mental state of
the colored citiz.ns there is such, that they
would tear tho prisoner limb from limb
within twenty-four hours after his confine
ment. A Mound City official warned Con
ductor Gibson yesterday, that lie ought not,
out of regard for his personal safety, go
out on his usual run on the accommodation
last evening and he remained ; not, however,
because he was afraid, for ho has proven
himself to be a brave little fellow, but be
cause he wished to attend the regular meet
ing of tho Railroad Conductor's
association, which occurs to-day.
Trains on the Wabash road
aro running very cautiously through Pulas
ki county, for fear that the angry negroes,
moved by a blind thirst for revenge, will
tamper with the tracks of tho road. Last
evening all seemed to be quiet.
AN IMPORTANT ROAD FOR CAIIlO.
As is known to many of our citizens the
road running ncrth into Pulaski county from
the Iron Bridge over Cache river connects
with the Mound City and Mound's Junction
road about half a mile west of tho National
Cemetery. Lately a new road has been cut
out extending the Cairo road from the con
nection with the Junction road, north to the
gravel hills, about half milo east of Beech
Grove Cemetery, where it connects with
roads leading to Villa Ridge and other
portions of Pulaski county.
The commissioners ot Alexander county
have already accepted the bid of Mr. A. J.
Dougherty to gravel the county road lead
ing from the Cairo city limits to the Iron
Bridge, the work to be done by November
And Mr. Dougherty makes a proposition
to tho citizens of Cairo that, if they will
subscribe ono thousand dollars aud place
it in the hands of the chairman ot the
county board of Alexander county, he will
at once suitably grade and place gravel
upon the road running north from the Iron
Bridge to the bill near Beech Grove, bo as
to make a good road at all times. The
money, however, not to bo paid over to him
until the particular work for which it is
subscribed is completed, and also to bo
held until the gravel work between tho
Cairo limits and Iron Bridge is finished ac
cording to contract. Tho amount of gravel
that Mr. Dougherty will have to place on
the road north of Cache river, if this prop
osiiion is accepted, will," uo doubt, cost
much more than the subscription he asks;
and the people of Cairo should lose no
time to accept his very fair proposition.
We understand that a subscription paper
has been drawn up for that purpose and
will bo circulated among our people this
week. We can not expect that
roads in other couuties leading
to Cairo, will bo improved
unless our people assist and take interest in
them. And now is a splendid opportunity
to show that they intend to take an interest
in such matters. Tho County Board of
this county can go no furrther than Cache
river, tho couniy lines with their work of
improvement, and it would be a shame to
leave it incomplete. Mr. Dougherty is, of
course, interested in having the work south
of Cache river done and that is why he
makes such a favorable proposition, and it
will bo a long time beforo our people will
again have so good an opportunity to secure
an important road leading to Cairo, im
proved so cheaply to them. For certainly,
this road, leu ling into tho best portion ot
Pulaski county, is most important to our
people. Particularly is it Important to our
merchants who, .during tho past two I
years, havo seen so much of tho
country trade attracted to other markets, in
consequence of the bad condition of the
roads leading to Cairo.
They should take a leading part in en
couraging tho work.
Tho following is a brief synopsis of the
proceedings of tho city council at its meet
ing Friday night:
An ordinance requiring pedlers of veget
ables to pay license to tho city at the rate of
10 per annum wasadoptod.
Among the reports of ollicers was that of
Street Supervisor Devore, who reported
having collected f 450 as street taxos dur
City clerk was instructed to advertise for
bids to build sidewalks provided for in or
dinances 57 and 03.
The street committee submitted a volum
nious report, recommending that sidewalks
in nearly all parts of the city bo conaructed
a id reconstructed, and that tho following
otreetB bo fillod : Commercial avenue, west
of the Wabash track, from Twentieth to
Thirty-fourth streets. Cedar from Fifteenth
to Sixteenth, and Sixteenth from Cedar
west to high ground; Thirteenth from Wal
nut west to high ground; Washington from
Over other Keiined Products of Petroleum
lor Illuminating Purposes.
Persons who have neither time nor inclination to Investigate the peculiar
merits of the various prades of refined petroleum, ask why ELAINE is safer
and better than other oils i
It is because Elaine, in tin process of manufacture, l taken out at a point of
the distillation where evry trace or parafflne, of beuzine and of the other
danirerous elements of petroleum Is eliminated It is conceded by practical
refiners of petroleum that the first product distilled over Is highly inflammable,
and that the last part of the operation contains very dangerous explosive in
gredients; to avoid having la Elaine either of these bad properties it is absolute
ly uece-sary t manufacture it from the heart or the distillation, and for this
reason much less proportion for illuminating purpose is had if Elaine was made
as the ordinary refined petroleum or commerce. This, with the subsequent
treatment of Elaine, makes it rather more expensive than other oils.
Consumers must, however, remember that in its use they have a (freat pro
tection to life aud property guaranteed, which ought certainly to compensate
rorits nominal extra cost.
mV oil st(m" 11 1" preferable to any other grade of oil, not ouly as a "safe
