We did n it even I'ltunuto that Mr.
Thtupp did not know his own ability to

about other citizen's ufl'nirs as they did
theuHolvts; and we do not think that
the Argm represents him correctly when
it sly he ju Iged the fimncial com litiou
of citizeus goiier-tlly by his own.

would u in a better sanitary condition
and the property holders along the treet
would be wealthier had the jstreet not
been tilled at all.
If Oscar Wildo were a citizen of Cairo
he would probably object to raising the
streets because it would iwcessitate the
bringing iu of so much "horrid dirt" into
the city. It seen'8 a littl strange to us
that the Argus man hasn't discussed the
street filling project from the stand-point of
aesti.eticisin; but hu waw't very far from it
when he "tackled"' the, sentimental side of

A switchman on the Wabash road
named Charles Lysit, son of Mrs. Sugaro,
who lives up town, had liin foot cut off Sun
day forenoon while engaged in switching
on the lower Commercial avenue. He was
runulug ahead of tli engine to throw the
switch, but caught hi foot i i s frog and
could not release it in time to avoid the
wheels of the advancing mgino. Ho was
taken to his boarding-house up town,
where Dr. Parker attended him. Those
who think that buoIi incidents as this have
any effect as warnings to other switchmen,
that it is not quite as safe to, run ahead of
the engine as it Is to run along side of the
track upon which the engiuo is coming, are
deceiving themselves and giving switch
men generally credit for mnro caution than
they possess. The average switchmen
deems it absolutely necessary to stand on
the foot-board in front of the engine until it
roaches within ten or fifteen feet of the
switch that is to be thrown, and then make
three or four rapid stride straight ahead
of the engine to throw the switch. Others
find it equally necessary, when by somo ac
cident they have reached the switch and
thrown it before the engiue is right upon
them, to stand with one foot upon the rail
upon which tbe engine is advancing, stand
thus until the foot-board of the engino near
ly strikes their shins and then suddenly
step upon it. To our feeblo understanding
these practices seem very foolhardy and en
tirely unnecessary to the proper perform
ance of a switchman's duties. But then,
wo aro not much of a practical switchmen

Dock company has elected Captain Henry
Haaratick, president, and Maj. E. W. Ilal
liday, secretary and treasurer. The com
pany hss offices at St. Louis, Cairo and
Mound City. Mr. Fred Borden is super-
indent, and Mr. Henry, of Mound City,
clerk. The new organization took effect
Saturday last. The ways have been in
constant use ever since they were sold. The
last craft repaired on them was the St.
Louis wharf-boat which was put off Satur
day. Yesterday the Halliday Sc Phillips
wharf-boat No. 3, in use at the Wabash
depot, was towed up to bo repaired, and
other craft is waiting to go on.
The change of time on the Illinois
Central road, spoken of in these columns
several clays ago, went into effect yesterday.
What used to be the accommodation train,
known among railroad men as "No. 6,"
leaving hero at about 11 o'clock a. m., is
now a fast train, having dropped all "ac
commodation" characteristics, and leaves
here at 12:25. The afternoon accommoda
tion, known among railroad men as "No.
5," that formerly arrived at about 4 o'clock,
is likewise now a fast train, arriving here
after at 2:30 o'clock p. m. The trains on
the Texas and St. Louis road have also
changed;' so as to make connection with
these Illinois CentTal trains. They arrive
now at 12:03 and leavr at 3:03.
Not long since "Mr. P. W. Barclay, of
this city, met Mr. D. C. Cregier, of Chicugo,
und spoke with him, among other thing?,
of the condition nf Cairo with regard to
the rivers. Mr. Uregior is what the Argus
has be n looking for, "an eminent, foreign,
civil engineer." He has been a citizen of
Chief kgo for many years; was there during
the whole time the street filling was in
prepress there, and took an active part in
t.e work; has boen for a number of years
'.n chargo of the public works of the city of
Chicugo, and is at present mmiger of the
great w iter works system of that great
city. Mr. Cregier is also a prominent
Mason, and is now president of the Masonic
Hencvolvent Society of the United States.
Mr. Cregier is a gentleman of national
reputation, a civil engineer of eminence,
whose position in Chicago is a sufficient
guarantee of his ability. The conversation
between him and Mr. Birelay turned upon
Cairo and her condition, when Mr. Cregier
asked, "why in the world don't your folks
rill your city up?" and continued, in sub
stance, "you cannot build a city thero un?
less you do this. You may feel perfectly
safe during low water, but when the waves
of the river splash against the tops of your
levees, you tremble with fear. But if even
then you were all to feel entirely safe, those
living around you, and strangers from afar,
from whom you expect to increase your
population and build your city, would al
ways turn away appalled at such a spec
tacle." Mr. Barclay suggested that the
cost of filling up the city would be too great,
and the property too poor to bear the ex
pense. Mr, Creigcr replied, "property that
is not worth raising above overllow and up
to a drainage point is not worth having, and
the sooner it is entirely abandoned the bet
ter." Such is the opinion of "an eminent
foreign civil engineer;" but it is probably
not such an opinion as the Aryus wants,
and that paper will, therefore, not accept it.
To our experiences of February and
March in 1882 and 1883, as proving that
busiucss will clime a hill, the Argus man
to the contrary notwithstanding, it may be
stated that for twenty years or more the
grade of the approaches on the cross streets
leading from Commercial avenue to Ohio
levee, were at an acgle of one foot perpen
dicular to six or seven horizontal, which
was a considerably steeper grade than
will be the proposed cross street approaches
to Commercial avenuo when that street
shall bu raised twelve feet higher. And
tho important point is, that during the
twenty yearB or more that this grade was in
this condition, nearlyjall thu business in the
city, both retail and wholesale, was done
m top of Ohio levee. People from every
part of tbe city climbed the bill Tor their
matches and shoe strings, and pins, and
beefsteaks, and furniture, and clothing,
and everything. And this was tho case,
too, in spite of tho Illinois Central railroad'
on top of tho levee, close along the side
walk, in spito of tho steamboat business,
that caused the levco to be crowded with
rough characters snd in spite of the fact that
it was farthest away and most difficult of
approach from the residence portion of tho
city. There was a continual contest fcr
possession of tho leveo, between therein'!
merchants on one side, and the river and
coinmisHion business on the other, and, hut
for the Fox, Howard & Co., fill on Com
mercial avenue, tho leveo would, very like
ly, bo the only and principal business street
in the city to-day snd everybody would yet
bo "climbing the hill" for thcirevery day
wants. But the Fox, Howard & Co. II. 1
was what made Commercial avenue what
it is to-dav, caused tho substantial build
ings there to bo multiplied from two, the
number there were when tho filling was
commenced, to the several hundred of fine
buildings that now lino it on either side,
But many years ot experience has proven
that the virtues of the Fox, Howard & Co.,
fill have beeu exhausted and that in order
to attain a full developement of the com
mercial importance ot tho avenue, it is
necessary to put nioro dirt onto it fill it
We must confess that the process of
reasoning by which tho Argus and its en
gineer arrived at tho conclusion that, to
raise the streets now filled twelve feet high
er, would create more "holes to bo recep
ticks for rain and sipe-water to produce
mosquitoes, chills and fever and worse
malarial fevers'' than we have with these
same streets at their present grade, is a
process that is peculiar to the Arus and
its engineer alone, and is entirely too intri
cate for our dull understanding. Does the
Argus engineer mean to say, that the streets
in the proposed filling district, if tilled
enough more to afford surface drainage
over the tops of the levees, would obstruct
the surface drainage in the low places any
more than do these same streets now, al
ready filled partly, under direction snd
with thu advice and approval of himself?
If so, in what manner? And does the engin
eer of the Argus mean to say that all the
rian that would fall on the high grade
streets and on the buildings in the raised
district would not find its way, by means
of the2gutters along these high grade,
streets into the river at all stages? If not,
why not? Does the Argus and its engin
eer know that when the rivers rise above the
mi. uths of tho sewers and above the level
of the bottoms inside the levee and above
the level of the streets at their present
grade do they not know that then and
tnen only there is an obstruction of surface
drainage in the city, mi that the rivers at
this stai'e, and they only, are thu ciuse of
such obstruc'.ion? Very little thought, it
seems to us, wou'd show tho Argus and its
engineer, that the relative situation as re
spects surface drainage and high water ob
struction would not be changed in the It-ait
by ad ling more dirt to the streets as pro
posed. And where would be the difference
as respects the accumulation of water be.
tween the atreets, then and now, except in
favor of high grade? Will not the rain that
then falls on the streets and houses in high
grade districts run over the levees into the
river at all times? Does it do this now?
Is not the quantity of accumulated water
during high water periods lessened by
just so much? That tho present system of
sewers will bs abandoned by the city, the
Argun infers, no doubt, from the fact that
the authorities are at work, increasing and
enlarging the outlets thereto, as well as ex
tending the system and connecting it with
places where water accumulates in the low
places. The Arus seems to take the un
natural an 1 contrary view of everything in
this high grade discussion.
Yesterday Chief Myers disturbed a
gambling nest that has been breeding sin
for some time. It is located in the brick
house, second below the council chamber,
kept by Minnie Vincent and others. It
had been carrying on a pretty bold busi
ness, until its character was the common
talk upon the streets, though, as usual in
such case", no one would swear to what he
"knew." But the chief got the names ot
ci lit p rsons. young and old, who bad
been habitual patrons of the institution, and
who had gambled there, for "big; money,"
aa a business Yesterday the chit f arrested
young Vincent and George Evans., charging
them with keeping a gambling-bouse. The
defendants p'eaied guilty to the charge
before Magistrate Comings and were each
fined ten dollars and costs, which they paid.
It is not at all likely that this li ttle lesson
will cause thu institution to be closed, or
gambling to bo stopped there.
Gambling lias a fascination which
comparatively few men can
rtsiht and especially for the keepers of such
dens, who find it a profitable and lazy bus
iness, and who regard a ten dollar fine a
good investment because it gives their in
stitution about as much advertising a a
man engaged in a legitimate business
would get for five times that sum. But the
chief and the officers intend to exert them
selves to suppress this institution. The
chief has notified the owner of the hoiiso
that, his house has been converted into a
gaming house and that, under the law, ,.
is liable for all losses sustained in it
by thos'a who play there. The chief has
determined to bring tho gamblers t.m.
selves into court it thu institution continues
to flourish. If this were done win thcjse
wboae names tho chief now has, the com
munity would bo Btartled to see the ti nines
in print, Among them they would sec the
names of citizens who aro well-to-do und
highly respected, of young men who aro
society pets, but who spend their nights
shooting craps with vagabonds, both white
and black. These youths carried on their
infamous business pcrsiittently and have in
somn cases even gone so far as to brag upon
their skill and success with tfic dotted
quads. Indeed, people who believe that
crap shooting is peculiarly the game for
the lower order of negroes only aro very
much mistaken, Several youths that we
know of, who one night wear tho masks of
respectability among ladies and gentlemou
in tho parlor or tho ball room, and are
judged to be what their masks represent
them to be, gather tho next night in some
dingy little hole, away from human habita
tions, behind locked doors, and find con
genial companionship among theso very
negroes, spending hours at a stretch tossing
dice and losing or winning money as their
"luck runs." These young men aro walk
ing over a mine. They are warned. Let
them beware lest there bo an explosion that
will hurry their good names, such as they
are, beneath a heap of stinking debris.

ALEXANDER CO. S. S. CONVENTION
Amass meeting of the Couuty Sunday
School convention was held in the Metho
dist church on Sunday evening. A large
audience va present. Mr. W. B. Jacobs,
of Chicago, the faithful Sunday school
worker, ma le a very eloquent address on
the imp r:a-ice of t iis work, describing
mmy t u:hing in.tidcHts connect) d there
with. OnMiudiy night the convention
opened at 9 o'clock in the Methodist
church with prayer by Rev. J. A. Scarritt,
after which reports of officers were called
for, the secretary, M. Enstord iv, r .-ported
the f illowing statistics for this year: In
Alexander c unity, there aru twenty two S.
schools, with a decrease of three from Nht
year, owing to the overflowed districts
above Cain; the numbers of officers and
tcicheis, two hundred and thirty-two;
scholars, twenty-one hundred and tin,
average attendance seventeen hundred;
school population, four thousand five hun
dred and twenty-nine, thereby leaving
twenty-four hundred and nine-teen children
who do not a'tend any nthool. What a
snd thought! Where are the reapers? Get
ready your sickles, men and women of
Alexander county, and go forth to garner
in the sheaves for the "Harvest Home."
Amount expanded for support of S. S.,
three hundred and seventy-five dollars.
Rev. fscurri't reported thirty-two dollars
from the Methodist School Missionary col
lection. M. Easter lay also reported re
ceived into church membcrdiip sixty
scholars in the severs I branches. The pres
ident, Mr. Sirode, male a statement that it
was almost impossible to hear from the
differ-nt precincts by correspondence. He
thought our schools not so well atten led
this year on account of removal of scholars
by the high water. Mr. Jacobs then fol
lowed by a soul-stirring a Idress. The con
vention adjourned until 2 o'clock. Whence
children's meeting was held, conducted by
Mr. Jacobs, followed by Rev. Scarritt in a
little talk about "Winning Soul." Kev.
Mr. George then a Idressed tho convention
on "Studying the Lessons." He gave some
.now idea-, handling his subject with ability.
The M'sdou was dismissed to meet in the
evening for the election of officer mid to
hear an sddres from Mr. Jacobs.
At the evening service, the first thing in
order was the election of officers. Mr.
Strodo and M.Easterday, the president and
secretary of last year, wero nominated and
