Two young men were yesterday arrest
ed for driving too fast through the streets
of the city, and fined each 5 aud costs.
Fast driving is common with a number of
gentlemen who pride themselves upon tho
possession of giiod horse flesh. The limits
fixed by ordinances, it should be homo in
mind, is six miles per hour, and this Is not
a rapid gate, but a gentle lope or cantor.

About n month since the governor of
Minnesota Ul.kud for the extradition of
George Washington and William Nelson,
negroes, who are serving out terms of three
and seven years for robbery and burglary
committed in this city, in the Chester peni
tentiary. They aio wanted in St. Paul
Minn., for tho murder of a policeman in
June, mi. The only way thumi convicts
can be reached by the Minnesota author!
ties, It is urged, is for tho governor ot H.
tiois to pardon them on tho condition tint
they are convicted of murder in Minnesota.
At tho tinio they were sent up from here, it
was not known that they were guilty of tho
St. Paul murder. The governor and at
torncy-gnneral havo considered tho case,
and the former declines to issue a condition
al pardon, holding that it would not be a
pardon, and as to pardoning them outright,
also declines to do so at this time, as the up
plicatiou has not becu made iu conformity
to the statute.
According to tho report of Sergeant
W. II. Hay the raiu fall hero during last

inches, or cmntiug 2:Jl cubic
t.) tho gallon (which Is the legal
gallon of the United States; it would miko
47,108,728 gallons. It is equal to a preci
pitation, on an acreage, of 1,573,201 gal
Ions every day of the month, and it would
require three pumps of the sizu of that of
Mound City, in constant operation, day
and night, to pump this quantity of water
out of the city.
Officer McTigue yesterday arrested
Bud Bisnnon, charging him with being an

and was fined 10 and costs by Magistrate
Comings. Ho paid the fine "like a man"
and went forth with the assurance of Inving
obtained a license to continue iu this same
old career. Mr. Brannon is one of a num
ber of young fellows in the city, whoso
habits of life are decidedly not of the un
objectionable kind and whom any one hav
ing the general good n iinu of a community
at heart would prefer to contemplate at a
considerable distance- say "ten thousand

Tlio present year of IsSd may tiuly be
called the "year of horrors." The deaths
from accideuts the first suven months ex
ceeding those of tho entire year of 18S2.
In January, eighteen persons were drowned
by the upsetting of a fljtb iat in North Car
olina, ten by a mine explosion in this state,
and eighty-two by the terrible Newhall
11 iuso fire. In February the (1 iods drown
ed fifty, and seventy-seven lost their lives at
Brai iwood. Ia March eleven were burned
at Brownsville, Maine. In April 1104 lost
their lives from various causes. In May
Bf8, June fifty-eight, and July 9:1. These
are only those of this country. The loss of
3.000 livei at the island of Iscbia, Italy, by
the earthquake, can give an idea of the
death rate from accidents in the old world.
In the Popular Science, Monthly for
August, in an article by Dr. Ch inning, re
viewing in anticipation of its publication in
England, "A History of the Telephone," by
Professor Sylvanus P, Thompson. In this
brief sketch it is proven conclusively that
Johann Philip Reis, a poor aud compara
tively unknown teacher of physical science
in Frankfort, Germany, ami who died of
c insinuation in 1874, was the true inventor
of the telephone. Illustrations copied from
a prospectus published by R;is in 1803,
show that all the essential points in the
present commercial telephone were covered
by UmY invention. To use Professor
Thompson's language quoted by Dr, (Jhan
niug: "There is not, in tho telephone ex
changes of England to-day, any single tele
phone to be found in which the fundamen
tal principle!- of Hois' telephone are not
essential and indespensible,"
The Argus is mistaken. "The high
grade editor of Tuk, Bulletin" is not try
ing to "stave off" consideration of a sori
ous mat lor, and ho does not consider the
raising of Cairo above high water mark a
"funny matter." "The high giade editor"
aforesaid is as serious in his a lvocacy of a
high grade as tho swamp ungel of the Ar
gus ever was or ever can be in his advocacy
of a low grade. Our humor was aroused
only by the unreasonable fear of tho low
grade editor, and the Houseless and often
ludicrous capers this fear has caused him
to cut in his paper. Instead of a diaboli
cal scheme concocted by a pack of scoun
drels to defraud tho people of their little
possessions, and that was to be carried out
immediately in spite of the popular will,
thd low grade editor is now pleased to soo
in the Linegar bills only un cll'ort of some
of the most prominent ami honorable cili)
zmis in the city, to rescue Cairo from hor
yearly alarms on account of floodH aud her
yearly doses of sipe-water; and all at once
it 'Moes not doom it at all probable, that
tho present council will ever bo persuaded
to undertake the wild scheme of raiso CaiiO
above high water mark." The high grade
editor of Th it Bollhtin cannot help being
amused at the fickleness of tho low
grade editor of the Argus, which
loads tho latter to gradually abandon ono
position for another until ho is turnod com
pletely around and, iu effect, calls hi msolf
a "no such thing." If, as tho low grade
editor says in his paper of last eveuing, the
present council "is opposed to the grand ex
periment possible under the Linegar bills,"
and will probably "never be persuadod to
undertake the wild scheme," will the low
grade editor please, tell us why in the name
of good sense he has been making such a
ludicrous exhibition of himself?
Tho object of tho trip south recently
of Illinois Central dignitaries is now ex
plained. With the last week or ten days
the Illinois Central company has made an
acquisition in tho south that will prove
valuable and important. It has bought
the Mississippi and Tennessee railroad,
which runs from Memphis to Grenada,
Miss. The road is exactly 100 miles in
length, ami connects at Grenada with the
Illinois Central. It annually brings to
Memphis about 00,000 bales of cotton, and
therefore Memphis is somewhat concerned
over the rumor, not knowing if, under its
new owner, a discrimination would not be
made against it. On the other hand there
were about 00,000 bales of cotton shipped
annually from Memphis over the road for
export via New Orleans. It has been known
for some time that Gen. E. C, Wathall, of
Grenada, who is the executor of the late II.
L. McCoiub, as such executor has 450,000
of the 800,000 stock of the road, which
Col. McComb owned at his death. This is
the controlling amount, and is doubtless
the block which the Illinois Central has
either purchased or is negotiating for. The
road runs through a highly productive
ountry in the very heart of the cotton
growing region. Its first and second mort
gage bonds pay 8 per cent interest, and are
at a high premium. Tlio stock has been
selling for about 00 cents, but there is no
reason why it should not be worth near
par, as the interest on tho bonded debts has
always been promptly paid and a surplus
fund left in the treasury in excess of all
other cxpenst s.
The town was full of farmers yester
day, bringing in melons, wheat, vegetables,
etc. Many of them came from up in the
county and even from Pulaski county. A
gentleman who took a drive to Mound City
in the morning reported that he met fifteen
or twenty farmer's wagons coming to Cairo.
The tact that whenever tho county road is
passable it is lined with wagons tilled with
produce of every kind, bound for Cairo,
ought to suggest the necessity of placing
and keeping the road in fine condition. It
ought also to suggest th(i advisability of
extending the road out to the lulls in Pu
laski county. Nothing is more essential
to Cairo than to be more easily accessable
t) the farmers in this county and in adjoin
ing counties. The little thousand dollars
that is asked to extend the county road to
the hills would return ten-fold to the mer
chants within the tirst year or so. The only
opposition to the cxtention of the road,
ought to cotue fr un the railroad that now
has the only route to the ceinetaries, and
realizes from twenty-five to one hundred
dollars from nearly every funeral that leaves
this city. If the road is finished and good
order, funerals w ill go by it and the roudy
ism that so often prevails such occasions
when they go by train will be avoided.
Then only the friends who really mourn
for decease 1 will engage a horse and buggy
and revereutly follow the remains to their
last resting place. The crowds of hilarious
children and senseless people, who now
look upon and attend every funeral of any
note as though it were a pic nic, gotten up
for their especial benefit, will be left behind
to enjoy themselves in some other way, not
at the expense of the bereaved ones and
not in gross descration of tho occasion.
Many good reasons can be offered why the
county road should be extended as proposed
by Mr. Dougherty, no good can be offered
against it. The thousand dollars should be
furthcoming without delay.
Last night the city council met in second
regular session this month. Present, His
Honor Mayor Halliday and Aldermen

tho duty of tho city marshal to employ
bucIi mentis as may be necessary to abate
such nuisance, when so ordered. It is also
provided that the railroad company shall
pay the cost of tho removal of such tracks
when done by tho marshal, or shall be sub

than 200 for every day such nuisance is
