The first thing a city man does when he

interested in stocks, with a like result.

there. In a day or two the tracks below

Speaking of tho return trip of the

says: "Tho boat left tin its return trip
about 8 o'clock last evening, but a series of
disasters took place on the way up. At
Mound City the packing blew out of one of
the engines and a considerable delay took
place while tho cylinders were being re
packed. At Grand Chain both the tug and
her barge grounded on a ledgu of rocks
where they remained for several hours be
fore they succeeded in getting off. The
party landed at the Paducah wharf this

Micsouri Republican: "Tho festive
wheel of fortune will doubtless disappear
completely from the county fairs of Illinois
under the sUtutary influence of the new-
state law, which gives financial aid to every
fair association that forbids this form of
petty gambling. The wheel of fortune i
generally a miserable swindle, but it is tol
erated because of its insignificance. County
officials would do well to see, however, that
tho wheels arc not set up outside the
grounds of the fair associations, as is olten
the case when they are not admitted inside.

Among other things Capt. James B.
Ka Is, in his recent sketch of the American
railways, made this statement: "TheT rail,
now universally used on American railroads,
is generally supposed to be of English
origin; but it was invented by Robert L.
Stevens, of Hoboken, N. J., in 1830, and
was first laid on the Camden and Amboy
railroad. It did not come into general use
until after 1845. The first made of these
rails were only 10 feet in length. The first
rails 30 feet in length were made at the
Cambria Iron works at Johnstown, Pa., in
1850, but there being no demand for them
they were used on the tracks of that com
pany at their works. The first 30-foot rails
rolled oi order were made at the Montour
works in 1850."
The fourth annual Southern Illinois
Fair will be held at Anna, on Tuesday,
Aug. 28 to Sept. 1. The exhibition in all
dep -trillion's is expected to be superior to
that of any previous display. Entries are
free and are solicited from tho people of
this put of tin; state. Premiums are liber
al, and admission low. Races will bo a
prominent fcatur.' and include a grand Ro
man chariot nice by A. McDonald and
wife, formerly with Illinium's Hippodrome,
on the nfternoons of Wednesday, Thurs
day and Friday. The fair will undoubtedly
be the best ever held in Southern Illinois,
and we feel safe in advising the public to
attend. Half fare rates on the Illinois Cen
tral and excursion rates on tho St. Louis &
Cairo railroad. Write to the secretary for
a premium list.
The man Mayfield, who killed Capt.
James Big;:s here, has been arrested in
Kansis City, Mo., and word was sent to
Chiel Myers here yesterday, asking if he
was wanted here. Mayfield has long ago
signified his willingness to como here at
any time and stand trial for tho act which
has made him bo unfavorably notorious here;
but the whilom states attorney, the immac
ulate Damron, was never ready for trial.
Maylicld has engaged Mr. D. T. Linegar to
defend him in the trial. He is confident
that he will be acquitted, claiming that he
was entirely justified in shooting Capt.
Bigi;; but he does not wish to surrender
himself to the officers here until ho can bo
tried, in order that he may not have to lay
in the county jail for a term of weeks or
months. In view of this state of tho case
there seems to be no need of going to tho
expense of bringing him here at publiex
pense now and he will probably released by
the Kansas City officers.
Things were (uite lively for a while in
the court of Magistrate Comings yesterday
afternoon. The sensation being the arrcBt
and trial of a brace of bad "niggers," who
were strongly inspected of having "had a
liiind'' in the several little burglaries that
have been committed iu the City of lute.
Officers Mahanny and Hogan had been at
work on these robberies for several nights
and they were lead In their investigations
directly to these negroes, one named James
Settle; another, Charles Bass, and another
called "Brandy." These threo were arrested
Monday night late, under suspicious cir
cumstances, prowling about tho streets mak
ing signals to each other evidently intending
to work out some kind of a job on Ohio
levee near Fourteenth street. Bass and
Mettle were charged with being vagrants,
and each was fine 1 one hundred dollars
and costs. Tho former was given a stay ot
execution on condition that ho leave town
in two hours and the latter was sent to jail
to be held until further evidence Bhall bo
obtained with reference to those burglaries.
"Brandy" protested that he wus not ready
for trial mid didn't believe ho could get
justice in that court anyhow. He was
jailed and will probably bo brought out
again to day.
THE MEMPHIS EXTENTION.
Il'ioin thu Kaueim (Jlty Journal.
"The date of the opening of the Memphis
extension has not yet been decided, but the
unit-mis believe that tin: work will be done
by September 15. A grand excursion from
Kansas City to Memphis and another Irom
Memphis to Kansas City will celebrate the
event wtnch is fraught with so much inter

road has already commenced to benefit the
tity. lho extension cuts off Cairo com
pletely and several grain and produce men
have moved to Kansas City to establish
themselves in business in order that they
may retain their Southern trade. Cairo,
tliioiieh the parsimonious and grasping
Halliday monopoly, has hitherto controlled
nearly all the Green Line points, but this
trade, by the ai I of the Memphis line, will

Grei n Line consumers will probably gel
quotations from Cairo, Kansas City and
other points of production, to which they
will add transportation charges, and will
then buy at the point that can lay the arti
cles down the cheapest at their station. All
talk about monopoly is simply idle bosh
it does not enter with business and no
businessman will mention it. If it can be
demonstrated that Kansas can produce corn
and wheat enough cheaper than our rich
valley, to justify her in paying freight
charges over sever il hundred miles of rail
road ihan Cairo then she is entitled to the
trade, ami w ill probably get it. That Kansas
City is a growing and enterprising city
there is no doubt.ar.d that she will be great

tion, we are ready to admit, but that she
can take any large amouut of trade fn ni

merchants she has secured from Cairo she
is welcome to. If some of them play t tic
