It is announced that tho telegraphers'

tho relations of capital and labor, and to

to remove the causes and improve the con
dition of tho laboring classes. The com
mittee has full power to travel and take

Special elections arc to bo hold in
many of the counties in the state during
this month, for the purpose of determining
whether or not a certain section of tho road
law passed by tho last legisUturb, requiring
that road tuxes shall hereafter bo paid only
io money instead of either money or labor,
shall stand. A provision is added to the
law, whereby each town may by vote of tho
legal voters at a special town meeting in
August, 1883, or any subsequent annual
town meeting, pay the labor and property
tax assessed in the town in labor as hereto
fore. In other wbrds, a favorable vote ro
stores tho law of 1879 on tho subject of
levy and working out labor and properly
tux on the hiuhways. So whero a town
votes to adopt tho labor system, then the
laws of 1879 in that regard continues in
force iu such town without change. A
special town meeting was provided in tho
law to be held in August this year, as tho
road taxes in each town are by law extend
ed by tho county board at their meeting in
September; bo, unless tho people of a town
shall tako a vote on tho subject in August,
or before such September meeting of tho
county board, and vote otherwise, they
would be obliged to pay their road taxes
assessed for this year in money.
Paducah has a bad case of the "bluing
peddler," and tho News says "if this thing
in kept up much longer tho Cairo folks
need not be alarmed if some of thesj fine
mornings tho Ohio river iu front of their
city is filled with tho mangled corses of
defunct peddlers," Tho News is very
kind to give us warning, but, really, it was
not at all necessary under the circumstan
ces. A squad of live, healthy bluing-peddlers
would bo dreaded by tho people here,
and would bo met at the outskirts of the
city by tho llalliday Guards and a regi
ment of special police. But the News as
sures us that the peddlers will be "man
gled corses," and "defunct;" such would be
harmless, and a whole river full ot them, so
far from striking terror to tho heart of the
average Cairoito, would till his noble soul
The important civil case to which Mr.
II. A. Ilannon and a negro named Young
wore parties and, which was bgun before
Justice Robinson Saturday, was concluded
last evening. Mr. Ilannon sued Young for
possession of a lot which ho had bought
from Mr. Fitzgerald and which Mr. F. had
bought at a mortgage sale. Young set up
in evidence that he relus"d to surrender
the lot to Ilannon because it was
understood that Ilannon was to ad
vance the money and buy the lot in Young's
wife's name. Instead of this Ilannon
bought tho lot in bis own name and
Young hsvitig failed or refused to pay back
the money advanced by Ilannon, the latter
seeks totako possession of the lot. Han
non's evidence denied the existence of the
understanding above referred to. Tbe df
fendant wa3 represented by Messrs. Mulkey
and Warder, and tho plaintiiT by Mr. Geo.
W. Hendricks. It was a jury trial and the
verdict was for the defendant.
Sunday evening the body of a white
man was pulled out of the river near the
foot of Fourth street. Coroner Fitzgerald
was notified and an inquest resulted in the
verdict that deceased came to his death by
drowning and that his identity was a my
etery to the jury. The body was buried in
the seven-mile grave yard yesterday morn
ing at the county's expense. The supposi
tion is that tho body was that of the tnau
who jumped over board from the steamer
Vicksburg Friday night, when caught in
the act of stealing, by the watchman. The
body had very evidently been in the water
but a short time. It was attired in dark
pants and vest, over-shirt with figures of
dogs upon it, one shoe, and sogks of uocer
certain color. In one of his pockets were
found several meal tickets from the Sher
man house and less than a dollar in money.
No one who saw the body recognized it, but
it is believed by some, among them several
of the officers, that it was that of a river
man named Kennard,nick-named,'Skinny."

bution to quito a number of offenders yes

When some time ago tho agitation
against the present location of the marine
surgeon's office and hospital was in progross
hero, and petitions numerously signed were
sent to Washington protesting against tho
evil, tho Burgeon general issued an order
that a sign should be placed over tho Pop
lar street door of tho custom house, desig
nating it as the entrance to the marine sur
geon's office, an 1 that tho door should bo
kept always open. The first part of tho order
has been obeyed: tho Bigu is up ami is do
ing good service. But tho second part is
neglected: tho door is not always open; (iu
the contrary, it is locked much of tho time
ot bite, because of a slight disorder in tho
spring catch, which makes it necessary to
lock it in order to keep It closed nt nil.
Marines iu need of medical attention for
sores or disease, finding tho office after
along, laborious tramp through tho heart
of city, turn away from tho locked door,
calling the marino surgoou ugly names for
not attending to his business, or else, go
through tho postoffico corridor. Tho ex
penditureof 35o. in repairs on tho lock, so
that tho door may be left unlocked with

Sunday night a squad of white men
were "cutting up" on tho sidewalk on Com
mercial avenuo near Twenty-eighth street,
and one of them, named Darcy, amused
himself at the exponso of a negro named
Allen, who, with several others was passing
by. Darcy it seems was dancing on tho
walk as tho negroes camo and gave Allen
an accidental or playful punch in tho ribs
as ho passed, Bad words followed and there
wero probably some demonstrations of
physical violence. At any rate the affair
concluded in a shot from a pistol in Allen's
bands, the ball striking Darcy in tbe thigh.
The negroes then ran, followed by the
whites ami Officer Dunker. Tho pursuers
followed their fugitives to tho Correl whore
one of the party kicked in the door of a
house in which a woman named Mitchel
lived, believing that Allen was hidden
there. But tho fugitives had not been
found last night. Dr. Parker who dressed
Darcy's wound, says that had the ball
struck a quarter of an inch in a certain di
rection away from where it did strike, it
would have cut an artery and Darcy would
have bled to death in ten minutes.
The superintendent of the mail service
has met a long-felt demand in tho service
hero, by appointing a transfer clerk, whose
duty it will be to take charge ot all mail
matter arriving here intended for other
points and transfer it to the several trains
or packets that will take it to its destina
tion. Heretofore these mails have been ta
ken by wagon from the depots or wbarf
boats to tho postoffico and from there dis
tributed among tho several conveyances to
which it belonged. As a rule this mail is
very heavy and composes much registered
matter. Tho transfer from the depots "down
town to the postoffice up town and tho re
traiibfer back to tbe outgoing trains, which
occurs mostly late in tlio night, was con
sidered unsafe. The transfer-clerk will
have an office convenient tothedepots, per
haps in the Union depot building, and will
take chargo of the mail as it comes in tak
ing it t his room and there assorting it
and distributing it to the several carriers.
The superintendent has appointed Mr. Jef
terson Chism, whose office U temporarily in
the general office building of the Illinois
Central railroad company.
SERVICES AT THE M. E. CHURCH.
Services were held in the Methodist
church on .Sunday, Rev. Scarritt occupying
the pulpit after a vacation of two weeks.
In the morning the services wero very im
pressive; in tho evening a good congrega
tion was in attendance; the music was due
Mr. Scarritt preached from Exodus, sec
ond verse, tweuty-third chapter "Thou
shall not follow a multitude to do evil." In
the courso of bis sermon, Mr. Scarritt
touched upon the desecration of the Sab
bath in Cairo and made some very pointed
and truthful statements. Ho spoke of the
business that wasdor.e on the Satlnth; the
excursions, amusements; and where ten
would bo found in their Btores, shops or
base ball grounds, you would find one who
had timo to attend church. He did not
wish ft understood he meant tho tramp and
lower classes, who thus abused the Sabbath,
but men high in position, in society; our
intelligent men, who could not make
enough money six days in tbe week, but
must needs attend business all day Suuday,
forgetting God's commandments to rest and
allow those in our employ to keep th it day
sacred. Is it any wonder God's judgment
followed them in sickness and various
wayt? Years ago ho remembered people
made a good living through tho week and
were blessed. Ho wished his hearers to
understand, he took the Bible for his au
thority, wherein wo are commanded to keep
the Sabbath day holy, and where a com
munity disregarded this command they
could not expect long to prosper. Tho ser
mon was listened to with marked attention.
Mr. Bcarritt's second year in Cairo is
about to close, and during that time ho has
endeared himself to his congregation and
built up his church. Many have professed
Christ and united with tho church; back
sliders have been reclaimed, lukewaim
hearts have been rekind'ed. Although
there has not been a great revival, yet a
deep and thorough work has been accom
plished and a warm interest is felt in the
church and Sabbath School; and we tlimly
expect to see a glorious awakening this
coming year. It is the sincere wish ot
many, that tho conference which convenes
in September, may deem it wiso to return
Mr. Scarritt to this charge for another year.
Many times you want to keep meat or fish
for several days. Lay it in a solution of
Rex Magnus over night and you cBn keep
it for weeks. You can also keep milk a
week or moro by Htirring in a little of the
"Snow Flake" brand.
THE TEXAS AND ST. LOUIS.
Preparations aro being in ado for tho open
ing of tho Texas and St. Louis radway.and
it is expected that by tho first of Anoint,
or immediately after that date, through
trains will bo run from Cairo to Jouosboio,
Camden, Pino Bluff and Tcxarkana, Ark.,
and Tyler, Corsican, Waco, McGregor and
Gatesvillo, Texas. The Northern Missouri
and Arkansas division of the road is re
markably straight, and it cuts through
rich cotton belt and valuable timber region.
Between Bird's Point and Jonesboro there
aro some Mao business towns, among which
Ristino, Mildon, Paragould and New Mad-
rid are noticeable. At Jonesboro connec
tion is made with the Kansas City, Fort
Scott and Gulf railroi l, which is pushing
toward Memphis, Tenn.
At Clarendon, on tho White rivor, the
latter is crossed by a bridgo with an iron
draw of U58 feet.
The Arkansas river is crossed a little bo-
ow Waldo by an Iron bridgo 1,700 feet
long, consisting of eight spans with a draw
358 feet long, each span resting upon two
wrought-iron cylinders filled with concrete,
composod of hydraulic lime and granite.and
sunk to tho bed-rock from 90 to 130 feet
deep. The draw span is supported by six
cylinders of similar construction to the
foregoing, It is a substantial structure,
and may be classed among the best bridges
erected in the South.
At Pino Bluff, six miles from the bridge.
tho princjpul shops of the road will bo lo
cated. Biyoud this point msny now towns
are springing up, with fine prospects for
doing a good business. Texarkana is the
terminus of the Missouri and Arkansas di
vision, and from thence the road continues
southwest through Central Texas, passing
through Tyler, Corsicana, Waco and Mc
Gregor, with a branch to Gatesville. The
road pasae through a rich cotton belt and
a fine grazing regiou, capable of supporting
vast herds of cattle. The passenger accom
modations of tbe road will be complete,
having been constructed by the Pullman
company. The passenger coaches will seat
exactly the samo number as a broad-gauge
car, and within thirty days through sleep
ers will run through from St. Louis and
Chicago for points on the line in Arkansas
and Texas via Illinois Centrsl and Cairo
Short Line. At-Waco connections will be
made with tho Houston aud Texas Central
and at McGregor with the Gulf, Colorado
and Santa Fe. St. Louis may well congrat
ulate herself on this new'route.
The Night Watch.
New YoKtf-Mr. Charles T. Hollis,' of
the New York Club Stables, says that he is
night-watchman, and one night was attack
ed by rheumatism so acute he could ouly
get down stffir on his binds and knees.
St. Jacobs Oil was applied twice. After
this he took his watch again the next night,
Oace More the Boy is Ahead
Among the gucnts of a New York ho
tel was a maiden lady from thts rural
districts. Tho landlord noticed, that
about 9 o'clock every night she would
come down stair, gel :i pitcher of ice
water and return to h r room.
"One night." he said, "I made bold
to speak to ln-r, and asked why she did
not ring the Ih-II for :i hull-boy to bring
the ice-water to her.
" 'But there is no bell in my room.'
'"No bid I in our room, madam!
Pray, let me show you,' nmf with that I
took tbe pitcher of ice-water in my
band and escorted her to her apart
ment. Then 1 point. -d out to her the
knob of the eledrie bdl. She gazed at
it with a sort of horror, ami then ex
claimed: " 'Dear me! Isthut a bell? Why,
the hall boy told me that was tho fire
alarm srgnal, and that I must never
touch it, 'except in ease of fire!'
"And that is how the ball boy saved
himself the trouble of going for ice
water." AVw York Star.
