On Monday October 1st the twenty
third St. Louis Fair opens, ami it will con
tinue until Saturday October 0th, inclusive.
It is under the management of the St.
Louis Agricultural and Mechanical associa
tion, which has conducted the fair in that
city in former years. It is confidently pre
dicted that this fair will exeeed, if po-sible
any of its grand predecessors, in every way.
The preinuiius offered by the association
aggregate fi0,000, and tho prcuiuiiii list
comprises everything in the departments
named, filling a pamphlet of thirty-seven
pages. All railroad, Btcamboat and ex
press companies have agreed to carry pas
sengers and freight at reduced r.ates.
The recommendation of the street com
mittee, concurred in by tho city council,
that owners of property abutting the lately
ordered sidewalk improvements be furnish
ed tho brick necessary tor those that are to
bo constructed of brick, and the top cover
ing tor those that are to be constructed of
plank, will probably be taken advantage of
by many of tho property owners concerned,
It is just probable that in this way the
walks will bn built much sooner and it is
just possible that somo of the property own
ers can build the walks for less than tho
amount they are assessed for the work. It
should be understood, however, that those
who wish to take advantage of the street
committee's recommendation must take ac
tion in thu matter before the county court
orders the issue of the warrants for tho col
lection of the assessments.
James Kelly, alias "Blue Tail," was up
t ono of his mean tricks again yesterday
afternoon, and It may be said to have been
about the meanest trick ever attempted by
any mortal. A stranger, sick, hatdly able
t creep along tho sidewalk, carrying one
arm In a pillow suspended from Ida neck
by a sling, met Jim ami handing him a flvn
dollar bill askod him to change it. Jim
took tho bill and walked away with it, re
fusing to give it up again. Tho stranger
followed and enlisted tho ail ol several
otheis who forced Jim to count out tho
change; but when he had turned over
about $1 Jim suddenly darted into thu lit
tle eating stand bolow Mr. Igle's place on
Ohio levee, grabbed a revolver from be
hind tho counter and came forth with it
leveled at the man who had extorted the
money Iroin him threatening to blow
aich-ee-double-ell out any one wl'O came
near him. But looking up the levee he
saw Officer McTiguo coming along and
taking the hint he made a break for sil'ety.
Ho ran down Fourth street followed by the
officer who hud Biispecteil deviltry of some
kind and wns captured on the premises of
the Sherman House, pistol and all. Magis
trate Comings fined him one hundred dol
lars arid costs, and ho went to jail for about
three months. "Jim" is about tho haidest
citizen we have among us.
The assessments ot property in the
several counties of tho state have all been
sent to the state auditor. Tho result is that
fifty-live counties show an increase of as
sessment over 1882aggregating 117,52:1,273,
while thu remaining fort-seven counties
show a decrease aggregating $11,730,740;
net increase in 1883, $5,780,533. The to
tals for the st'ite in the last two years are,
1882, $750,035,708; in 1883, $750,422,291.
In Alexander county the assessment for
last year is $-',139,031 ; this year, $2,270,
351, or an increase of $140,320. In Pu
laski county this year's assessment is $700,
753; last year's was $778,052, a decrease of
$11,899. In Union county last year's as
sessment was $1,825,718; this yearV, $1,-
903,981. In Johnson county last year's
was $591,240; this year's is $092,824.
The publisher of Tub Bulletin will
make one more attempt to set Uie editor of
the Argus right U3 thoti,'h he believed a
man stricken with an incurable D impho 1
ishness could be set right in anything. H '
has personally, in answer to the Argus
man's question and without thinking it w:is
any of the Argus man's business, told him
that the sole interest ho had in Dixon
Springs w is tho privilege ot receiving
$15.00 a m mth for advertising the priv
ilege of paying $3.00 per week for board
for himself or members of his family while
there, and the pleasure of being related to
the landlord of the said "Country Hotel."
When the Argus man by inference or other
wise tries to make this interest appear
greater than as ah vc set forth he simply,
maliciously and intentionally lies with the
hope that he may injure the business of
The Bulletin or of Dixon Springs. So
f r as The Bulletin is concerned we are
willing to stand all the injury tho Argus
can do us, and as for Mr. Lemon we great
ly mistake his temper it he does not play a
tune for them tint will make the Argus
people d ince livelier than they ever did in
their youthful days.
II on. S. P. Wheeler returned to the
city yesterday after an absence of some
weeks. Mr. Wheeler is attorney for the
Wabash road and as such has been active
ly connected with the negotiations pending
between the company aud Col. Taylor,
with reference to a strip of land which the
company needs, and has been trying to
procure, in order to reach its Mississippi
levee right-of-way without crossing the
Illinois Central track a second time. A
number of property owners aro very anxi
ously awaiting the favorable conclusion of
the-e negotiations, in order that the road
in iy transler its ireignt tramc iroin i,om-rnerci-il
avenue, where it is often very an
noying to them, around to the Mississippi
levee, and they have waited long in vain
arid have become impatient to know what
the state the these negotiations and the in
tentions of the company are. Therefore a
Bulli.tin- representative made it his duty
yesterdty to interview Mr. Wheeler at The
llalliday, with reference to the whole mat
ter an 1 he learned that the company had as
yet not -iu'nified its intention toaccept thelib
eral olf;r undo by Col. Taylor. Mr. Wheel
er thought the company could como in on
the right-of-way it already has outside the
levee and by crossing the Illinois Central
track a S'-con I time, with less expense than
it could by adopting and carrying out the
new plan. Being reminded that the Illi
nois Central was understood to have posi
tively objected to another crowing of their
track by the Wabash, Mr. Wheeler said that
he had no intirua'ion of such objection.
Mr. Wheeb r used some raher strong lan
gauge in speaking of those who were most
uggrett-ive in the wear upon the Wabash's
Commercial avenue tracks and in general ot
the whole si hetne to induce tho road to
transfer its traffic to the Mississippi side of
the city, which language was probably not
inteuiled lor publication. It seems, there
fore, that the Commercial avenue freight

In a lew days (hero was another an
nouncement, viz. that tho case wits called
tor trial, and that thu ilelemlarits obtained
another adjournment for three months:
Our Cairo readers may desire to know what
the "Dwight case" is: Walion Dwight, of
uiiigiiamtoii, :ew lork, a robust man, a
public-spirited citizen died In November,
1878. Ho was insured for $250,000, of
which $50,000 had been taken by Tho
Equitable Life Assurance Soe.ietv; a part ol
it, a number of years previous, but the
larger part during that year. The prein
imiis were payable quarterly. Three days
before the second premiums camo duo,
Dwight died suddenly. There was then a
belief that ho had committed suicide. It
was found that he had borrowed a part of
the money to pay the first premiums, and
that he ha i no money for the second. Some
of the companies immediately concluded
that Dwight hal conspired to defraud
them. Tho Equitable Life Assurance So
ciety was tho only company that took a dif
ferent view of the case. Dr. Delatiel'd, of
New York City, having, at the riquest of
the Society, made a posit-mortem examina
tion of the man, and having decided that
lie died from natural causes, Tho Equitable
immediately paid to Dwight's executors the
$50,000 due on its policies. One company
compromised, The other companies began
to hunt for testimony to support their refus
al to pay; and they have ever Mtice been
delaying the trial of the suits which the
executors of Dwight's estate have brought
The litigating companies admit that they
received premiums and issued policies on
Dwight's life. As they aro able to hire "hd
array of distinguished legal talent" (25 or
30 hwyers),they are able to make "denials"
and "avertments" as plenty as blackberries;
but which, if they have any value, go to
prove the utter worthlessness of all their
policies! They deny that Dwight is dead;
lint if he is dead, they neny tint his death
was produced by natural causes. They
deny that the plaintiffs are the ex ctitors ol
Dwight's estate. They deny that they are
liable for the amount of their policies,
although they took the premiums in the
regular v.ny. They aver that many ques
tions in the applications for the insurance
were not truthfully answered. They aver
that Dwight committed suicide or procured
the taking ol his own life with tho design
of defrauiing the companies, and that the
beneh's of the fraud are to be distributed
to persons unknown.
Life insurance is an indemnity gti iranteed
to widows and orphan for the loss of the
support which was furnished by their hus
bands and fathers. It is valuable nn'y in
proportion to the security it conveys. These
companies by a strained and technical in
terpretation of their policies, and by a neg- J
bet to discover at the proper time whether
nr not the statements of Dwight were true,
and by this public exposure of thems'-lves
as denier of their own contracts are
bringing disgrace upon themselves! Happi
ly they stand alone anil apart from The
Equitable Life Assurance Society, wln.se
principle and practice are to make its poli
cies indisputable after a certain date, to
pay them immediately after the policy
holder dies, and never to rcfue payment
for technical reasons.
