The mayor is evidently anxious to seo work

thoroughly started, will employ forty teams
and seventy .five or a hundred men. The
council will tonight doubtless conclude ar
rangements for beginning work.
Dr. M. M. Goodwin, or Jonesboro, In
his communication published elsewhorc,
makes a good suggestion which . has been
thought of and talked of often by citizens
of Cairo and others. His letter is accom
paniud by a pencil sketch of Dog Tooth
Bend and tho lino of A's ho refers to is
across tho Missouri point which he proposes
to cut off aud thereby throw it over to tho
Illinois side. It will not require much ar
gument to prove, or shrewdness to under,
stand, that a suro way to provont the cavhur
of a bank is to removo tho river away from
it entirely. But thero are other ways,
equally suro and much less expensive and
difficult, One of tlieso is that pursued by

a match-game here on Tuesday by a ma
jority of fourteen tallies, went homo and
crowed like a fighting cock fresh from bat

Iub adversary's life blood. They claimed
and had it published to tho people of Padu
cah, that they won tho game by four in

lied. Had they been beaten by an ordinary
club they might well have denied their de
feat to avoid the disgrace, but to be beaten
by so superior a club as the Cairo Itsds is
an honor rather than a dishonor, and the
Paducah "niggers" ought to be ashamed of

The seroneuess that has prevailed in
the police couits of the city for several days
was broken for an hour or two yesterday
morning in Magistrate Comings' court by
tho trial of half a dozin denizens of Pinch,
who had made things interesting in their
neighborhood tho night before by indulg

alias "Jennie the Bruiser," and Kate Fish
er, better known "Snorting Kate," were be
fore tho court, the first named charged
with keeping a disorderly house and the
others with making the house disorderly.
"Liz" was fined $10 and the others half
tho amount each, which was cheap enough
for tho amount of fun they hid. Blanch
Ellison 'got a fine of $5 and costs tor

The bids for constructing and reconstruct

of C. Lame for reconstructing plankwalk
on Ohio levee, between Twelfth and Four

Washington avenue, westerly side, between
Sixth and Seventh Btreets; and that of Jno.

sides of Seventh and on north side of
Sixth streets, between tho avenues.
The committee also took under considera

New Lovoo street, in accordance with an
ordinance passed somo timo ago, providing
for raising said street about ono foot and
restoring the slopes. Thoc immitteo decided
that work ought to bo begun immediately;
but upou the question of how much should

you find the section of Mississippi river
comprising Dog Tooth Bend.
I am informed, that one may start nt
Cairo court houso and travel apparently
north on tho Illinois shore of the Mississip
pi river, some einhtocn or nineteen miles,
anrt then find himself at tho south end of
D.ig Tooth Bend, about five miles duo west
from the Btartmg placo. A number of small
letter A's mark or indicato your Cairo
washing out, cutting or caving bank. Tbo
caving begins at tbo upper or northeast of
the line of A's and is gradually traveling or
moving south or down tho liver, and must
continue until a certuin water or current
circle is completed, then fill by Band bar
for a time, then wash again.
The city spent a largo amount of money
years ago, at upper end, then the govern-
ment did a great amount of work, and now
the city is called on ai;ain. And when will
tho calls stop? All that money aud labor
has been thrown away. I havo a solid,
8quareono hundred and sixty acres of land
in tho river uow. I watched and studied
that bank caving operation dav ami niizbt.
It was the same kind of caving prociss
which you havo at Cairo. There aro two
kinds, one is a gradual wear a kind of
friction and is sometimes very slow. The
kind you have, is a digging under and sur
face caving, and sumetimes very ripid. The
caving takes placo, in bites or swaths, gen
crally from fifteen to thirty feet wide and
will travel down stream by jerks or jumps
from JO to 49 or 00 teet at one spell. It is

On my map you will find a dotted line,

Mr. Thrupp, a Cairo uuginur, once told
me, the cut would be about four and a hair
miles in length. Cairo htspent enough
on your wash to have Htm do that cut off.
The forty thousand uow called for would do
it. The extra mouey spent in raising your
levees would have done it the losses of
ono high water would have done it.
Ljook at too map and imagine that cut
off made and study tho results. The river
shortened from 20 to 25 miles, in round
iri(i oeiween miro ani ot. jymis, in ono
item; but, suppose the whole laud ot
Cairo, both inside aud outsid. of its levees,
shall be raised two feet, which 1 think
wholly probable, what will bu the intiiusic
gain? By that :ut olf the water would te-
Uin its accumulated impetus, (which ia lost
in making that circle of 20 miles) and have
a fall in the4J miles, which it now hus in
tho 20, which fall and impetus will cut out
and dredge the channel from Cairo south
tor a distance of possibly 50 miles and re
duce the Cairo water level at least two feet.
That cut off would give Cairo an additional
amount of territory and I behevoit is getier
ally coucoded, that a city needs ground to
put houses on. The "Cairo City Company"
may havo sniffed tlu lUvor of this breeze!

notorious Darnell boys met the second
clerk and complained to him that the host
had made an overcharge on a horse seut by
him (Darnell) to a certain place. Tbo
second clerk replied Hut he could do noth
ing in the matter; that be must see the first
clerk. Darnell contiuued to complain in a
more angry manner aud was ngnin referred
to the hrst clerk, when be bur.t forth in s
violent and filthy epithet, and moved toward
the clerk, a thu same time tl.renter.in,, t
I i ...... .
cuarnso inin lor his impudence. The clerk
was a mere pigmy in comparison with
Darnell and would probably have been
unmercifully beaten had not the mate,
McClosk, interfered. McChwky stepped
forward and told Darnell that he must not
touch "that boy." Darnell heeded the
mite, but drawing a knife told the mate to
go on about his hummus and sent forth a
volley of foul mouthed alnwp Th ,.t..
controlled himself, however, but .,M tn
whip Darnell in leas timo than it would
take to sty "Jack H tbiusou." if lie would
put up his knife. But Darnell ignored the
challenge and slunk off liko a whir.iu.rl
cur, while the boat drew in the gang way
and moved on down stream.
Wednesday, on her way up, the boat put
in again nt Darnell's landing to take aboard
a lot of potatoes bound for St. Louis. Wm.
Darnell camo aboard to tho clerk's office to
get tho freight bills, and when be camo
down ho ami ton mate met ain. TL

mate went up to him and ex'eoded his
hand, saying they ,a'i better make friends
and forget the little trouble they had on
the way dowo. Darnell accepted the hand
and agreed, with every evidence of sincerity,
in the proposition to forget and forgive,
and then left tho bout. McClosky, think-
ing that all was now tafe, started to go
ashore and hurry the crew iu bringing the
potatoes aboard, but just as he was mid-way
on the stage, throe men popped up before
him, levelled pistols at him, commanded
him to throw up bis hands, winch ho did
promptly, took his weapon and threw it
into the river, and then picked up duos and
beat him in an inhuman raacuer. They
di 1 not stop until some one shot at them
from the cabin guards, when all three, fol
lowed by Darnell, rushed up sUirs cursing,

they would kill him on tho spot if found.
