Yesterday morning early four or five
tramps boarded tho O. & M. train at
a small station in Indiana, called
Water Valley, and made desperate efforts
to take a free ride. Tho conductor, with
some assistants, put them off as the train
went out, but they got aboard again on the
next car and when the train was stopped to
put them off they showed fight. They got
fight, too. They were put off again with
much difficulty as they ran from one cur
into another and hid in every available cor
ner, When all were off tho train tho con
ductor stationed himself where he could
watch them all as the train went out and
cover them with his pistol. As soon as the
train started tho tramps began to fire upon
it with pistols and tho conductor returned
the compliment. About six shots were ex
changed without serious injury so far as

Marsh Brown was up again before
Mag.strato Comings yesterday, charged
with vagrancy. Ho was believed (and
there was very good (round for the beliel)
to have robbed a man of ninu or ten ilol-

morning. But bo claimed that certain
money ho had been seun with on that day
and which was one of tho evidences
against him, ho hud won at "shooting

one crime ho pleaded guilty to another,
Tho charge ol vaimmev wan ureferred

In special locals this morning appears
an item that will mako the hearts of Cairo
people glad. It is a notice to contractors
and builders, from Mrs. A. E. Safford, that
proposals will bo received until tho 31st,
instant, for erecting tho Safford Memorial
Library Building, according to tho elaborate
plans and specifications, outlined in these
columiii some time ago. In a month or
six weeks from now tho work will proba
bly be under full headway. Tho basement
of the magniQcient structure will be con
structed first, on the natural basis, and the
filling be made around it as tho building
rises. In connection wdth this it may be
stated that Mr. Peter Neff has also finally
decided to re-erect tho buildings on Ohio
levee below Sixth street, in the form of
large hotel, or so as to make it convenient
either for a hotel or for two seperate busi
ness houses. Ho has the plans already
prepared. He will make both buildings
two stories above the levee aud one hun
dred aud ten feet deep, lie expects also
to have work begin by fall. Add to these
enterprises tho several others that ae in
embryo, the marine hospital among them,
and the great amount of internal improve
ment ordered by tho city council, and wo
have a very fair prospect of having a little
boom of our own before many wieks more.
At a meeting of the board of directors
of the Widows and Orphans' Mutual Aid
Society, held at the office of Mr. Thomas
Lewis Thursday night, Mr. J. M. McGahey
was re-elected president; Mr. Moses Phillips,
fiirit vice president; Judge J. H. Robinson,
second vine-president; Dr. IVtrie, medical
adviser, and Mr. J. A. Goldstine, treasurer.
Pending the elcciion of a secretary, tho
board adjourned over until next Thursday
night. Mr. Thomas Lewis is the secretary
of the organization and has held that posi
tion since the first mootini.' of tho board.
Mr. Liwis claims that article VI of the
constitution makes the secretary's term one
during good behavior, whilo other mem
bers of the b.iard hoi 1 otherwise, and an at
tempt by these other members, lead by Mr.
F. Vincent, to elect another secretary Thurs
day night and mako Mr. Lewis president,
was the cause of quite a scene. The por
tion of article VI, under which Mr. Lewis
claims a permanent secretaryship and by
authority of which others deny him this,
reads as follows: "It shall bethodutyof
the bord of managers anscally to elect
from their number one president, first vice
president and second vice-presido nt, and
oue treasurer. They shall elect ouo or
more medical advisers. If they should not
bo elected members of tho board, they
shall be ex-ollicio such. They shall also
appoint a secretary, who shall noLD his
OKKICK Sl'IUlXT 'JO 11 K KEMOVEO Foil .IlST
cu'sk at any TIM n." Mr. Lewis bases
his claim to the permanent secretaryship
upon th-.! last clause, which ho interprets to
mean that his term is unlimited and that
ho can be removed only for good cause.
He denies th it the word "annually" as ap
plied to the election ol tho other ofliceis,
also applies to him in the remotest degree.
It is claimed by those who differ with Mr.
Lewis that th.; word "annually" applies to
the secretary equally with the other officers,
and that the concluding clause is simply to
luavo no doubt as to the power ot the
board toder.laro the ollico vacant whenever
they shall be satisfied that there is "just
cause." It seems that this latter is the
view taken of this question by all the
former board of managers. Tho first board
elected Mr. L wis secretary and the Becond.
third and fourth, each understanding that
the secretary's ollico had become vacant
with the reet, deemed it necessary to refill it
with the rest by election, and each in turn
re-! lected Mr. Lewis, Tho board this tune
bel'oie adjourning, appointed a committee
of one to consult legal talent with reference
to this puzzling question and to report nt
tliu next meeting of the board.

to do away with all criticisms and sav 'tis

than in Colorado aud is exemplified in tho
indifferent manner in which tho mirer

out a thought of the towering peaks above
him, whoso summits are lost in the clouds,
nor of the awful chasms below, iuto which
one false step would dash him in a thous

who sees it from a scientific view, his every
step and movement, is guarded with selfish
care. Yet I wonder some of them don't for,
get themselves, and become lost in admira

on foot, by moonlight. There were four ot
us in the party, and we started several
hours before the moon came up. When we

could not suppress a feeling of dread that
came over us, lest we should be smt head

the other in front and the dim outlines ol

immediately regained my presence of mind,
and by tho friendly aid of my stick, I kept

If Colorado can feel a tinge of pride at
the mines that scar and temperate, of the
fields that bloom, and valleys of smiling
verdure glowing under the rays of the sun
anl sweet with brilliant flowers, she (cer
tainly has an equal right to bo proud of the
mighty range sweeping across, rent, torn,
assuming a thousand shapes, yet always
reaching upward, each crest with a crown
of purity saying as they stand there in
their silent granduer. "Behold us! We
are kings." But they have a majority that
is foreign to loyalty. They elevate man to
a higher place of thought, awaken feeings
of reverence. They create awe and won
der at s.,mo unknown greatness, and teach
him by their vastnesa anil sileuee to bow to
an Almighty power. It is not in abroad

hard to believe this, but every crystal has
