they possess. The average switchmen
deems it absolutely necessary to stand on
the foot-board in front of the engino until it
reaches within ten or fifteen feet of the
switch that is to be thrown, and then make
three or four rapid strides straight ahead
of the engino to throw the switch. Others
find it equally necessary, when by some ac
cident they havo reached the switch and
thrown it before the engiue is right upon
them, to stand with one foot upon the rail
upon which the engine is advancing, stand
thus until the foot board of the engine near

The Mound City Marino Railway and
Dock company has elected Captain Henry
Haarstick, president, and Maj.E. W. Hal

pany lins 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 havo 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 & Phillips
wharf-boat No. 3, in use at the Wabash
depot, was towed up to be repaire r, and
other craft is waiting to go on.
The change of time on the Illinois
Central road, spoken of in these columns
several days ago, went into effect yesterday.
What used to be the accommodation train,
known among railroad men as "No. 6,''
leavins here at about ll o clock a. m., is
now a fast train, having dropped all "ac
commodation" characteristics, and leaves
here at 12:23. 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. ni. The trains on
the Texas aud St. Liuis road have also
changed, so as to make connection with
these Illinois Central trains. They arrive
now at 12:03 and leave at 3:03.
- Not long since Mr. P. W. Barclay, of
this city, met Mr. D. C. Cregier, of Chicago,
and spoke with him, among other things
of the condition of Cairo with regard to
the river. Mr. Cregier is what the Argus
has been looking for, "an eminent, foreign,
civil engineer." He has been a citizen of
Chicago for many years; was there during
the whole time the street filling was in
progress there, and took an active part in
the work; his been for a number of years
In charge of the public works of the city of
Chicago, and is at present manager of the
great witer works system of that great
city. Mr. Cregier is also a prominent
Mason, and is now president of the Masonic
Benevolvent Society of the United Sta'es.
Mr, Cregier is a gentleman of national
reputation, a civil engineer of emm-iice,
whose position in Chicago is a sufficient
guarantee of his ability. The conversation
between him and Mr. Barclay turuel upon
Cairo and her condition, wh"n Mr. Cregier
a-iked, "why in the world don't your folks
fill our city up?" and continued, in sub
stance, "you cannot build a city there uiu
les you do this. You may feel perfectly
safe during low water, but when the waves
of ttie river splash against the tops of your
levees, you tremble with fear. But if even
th-rj you were all to feel entirely safe, those
living around you, and strangers from ufar,
from whom you expect to increase your
population an I build your city, would al
ways turu away appalled at such a spec
tacle." Mr. Ihrcliy sugu'estel thai the
cost of filling up the city would be too great,
and the property too par to bear the ex
pense. Mr. Creiger replied, "property th it
is not worth raising above overflow and up
to a drainage point is not worth having, and
the sooner it is entirely abandoned the bet
ter." S ich is the opinion of "an eminent
frei3'0 civil engineer;" but it is probibly
not such an opinion in the Argus wants,
and that papjr will, therefore, not accept it.
To our experiences of February and
March in 18W3 and 1883, as proving that
business will clime a hill, the Argus man
to the contrary notwithstanding, it may be
stated that for twenty years or more the
grade of tho approaches on the cross streets
leading from Commercial avenue to Ohio
levee, were at an Hr.glo 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 avenue when that street
shall ,be raised twelve feet higher. And
the impoitatit point is, that during the
twenty years or moio that this grade was in
this condition, nuarlyjall tho business in tho
city, both retail and wholesale, was dono
on top of Ohio levee. Peoplo from every
part of tho city climbed the hill for their
matches and shoe strings, and pins, and
beefsteaks, and furniture, and clothing,
and-cverything. And this was tho case,
too, in spite of tho Illinois Central railroad
on top of the levee, close along tho side
walk, in spite of tho steamboat business,
that caused tho levee to bo crowded with
niigh charactersand in spite of the fact that
it was farthest away aud most difficult of
approach from the rcsidenco portion of the
city. There ws a continual contest h t
possession of tho levee, between the retail
merchants on one side, and the river and
commission huaincMon the other, and, but
for the Fox, Howard & Co., till on Com
mercial avenue, the levee would, very like
ly, be the only and principal business street
in the city to-day and everybody would yet
bo "climbing the- hill" for their every day
wants. But the Fox, Howard & Co. fi l
was what made Commercial avenue what
it is to-dav, caused tho substantial build
ings there to be multiplied from two, the
number there were when tho filling was
commenced, to the several hundred of tine
buildings that now lino it on either side.
But many years ot experience has proven
that the virtues of the Fox, Howard & Co.,
till have been exhausted and that in order
to attain a full development of the com
mercial importance ot tho avenue, it is
necessary to put more dirt onto it till it
We must confess that the process of
reasoning by which tho Argus and its en
gineer arrived at the conclusion tint, to
raise the streets now filled twelve feet high
er, would create more "holes to be recep
tacles for rain and sipe-wnter to produce
mosquitoes, chills and fever and worse
malarial fevers" than we have with these
same streets at their pre-ent grade, is a
process that is peculiar to the Argus and
its engineer al me. and is entirely too intri
cate for our dull understanding. Does the
Argus engineer mean tos-iy, that the streets
in the proposed filling district, if filled
enough more to alfoi i 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 p'irtiv, under direction and
with the advice and approval of himself?
If so, in what manner? And does the engin
eer of the Atgus mean to sy that all the
rian that would fall on the high grade
streets an I on the buildings in the raised
district would not find its way, by means
of thejguttcrs along these high grade,
s'reets into the river at all stages f It not,
why not? Does the Argus and its engin
eer know that when the rivers rise above the
mouths of the sewers and above the level
of the bottoms inside the levee aud above
the level of tho (streets at their present
grade do they not know that then and
tnea ouly there is an obstruction of surface
drainage in the city, ani that the rivers at
this stage, and they only, are the cause ot
such obstruction? Very little thought, it
se-uis to us, would show the Argus and its
engineer, that the relative situation as re
spects surface drainage aud high water di
stinction would not be changed in the least
by ad ling more dirt to the streets as pro
pose!. And where would be the difference
as re;p cts the accumulation of w ater be.
tween the streets, then and now, except in
favor of high grade? Will not the rain that
then falls on the streets and houses in high
grile districts run over the levees into the
river at all times? Does it do this now?
I not the quantity of accumulated water
during high water periods lessened by
just so much? That tho presmt system of
sewers will hi abandoned by the city, the
Argus infers, no doubt, from the fact that
the authorities are at work, increasing und
enlarging the outlets thereto, as well ns ex
tending the system and connecting it with
places where water accumulates in the low
places. The Argus 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
lioii.se, second below the council chamber,
kept by Minnie Vincent and others. It
ha I been carrying on a pretty bold busi
ness, until its character was the common
talk upon the streets, though, as u-ual in
such c isi--, no one would swear to what he
"knew," But the chief got the names ot
eight p-ron-i, young and old, who had
been habitual patrons of tho institution, and
who bud gambled there, for "big money,"
as a business. Yesterday the chief arrested
young Vincent Mid George Evans, charging
them with ke. ping a gambling-house. The
defendants p'ea led guilty to the charge
before M igi.str ite Coinings, anl were each
fined ten dollars and costs, which they paid.
It is not at all likely that this littlo lesson
will cause the inutitution to bo closed, or
gambling to be stopped there.
Gambling has a fascination which
comparatively lew men can
ntist and especially for the keepers of such
dens, who find it a profitable and lazy bus
iness, and who r"gard a ten dollar fine a
good investment because it gives their in
stitution about us much advertising as a
man engaged in a legitimate business
would get for live times that sum. But the
chief and the officers intend to exert them
selves to suppress this institution. Tho
thief bus notii'md the owner of the liouso
that, bis house has been converted into a
gaming home and that, under the law, ho
is liable for all Uses sustained in it
bytliog'i who play there. The chief has
determined to biing the gamblers them
selves into court il the institution continues
tollomish. If this were dono wi ll those
whose names the chief now lias, the com
munity would be startled to see the names
in print. Among them they would see the
names of citiz.uis who are well-to-do and
highly respeded, ir yu,iK mun who are
society pets, but who spend tnoir nights
hooting craps with vagabond, both white
and black. These youths carried on their
infamous business persistently Rnd have in
some cases even gone so fir fts , brag upon
their Kkill an I success with tho dotted
quads. Indeed, peoplu who believe that
crap shooting is peculiarly the game for
thu lower order ot negroes only are very
much mistaken. Several youths that we
know of, who one night wear the masks of
respectability among ladies and gentlemen
in the parlor or tho ball room, and are
judged to be what their masks represent
them to be, gather the next night in some
dingy little hole, away from human habita
tions, behind locked doors, and find con
genial companionship among these 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 be an explosion that
will burry their good names, such as they
are, beneath a heap of stinking debris.

A mass meeting of the County Sunday
School convention was held in the M- t!
dist church on Sunday evwiirg. A large
audience was present. Mr. W. B. J leob-
of ChvHgo, the faithful Sun lav school
worker, ma le a vory eloquent address on
th'; inipjrta'ice of this work, describing
many t fuelling is Aden's connected there
with. OnMondiy night the convention
opened at ) o'clock in the Methodist
church with prayer by Rev, J. A. Scirritt,
after whirh reports of officers were called
f ir, the secretary, M. Easterday, reported
the f illowing sta'icCcs for this year: In
Ah. xander c ;uriy, th-rv ute twenty two S.
schools, with a decrease of three from list
year, owing to the overflowed districts
above Cairo; the numbers of officers arid
teacbets, two hundred and thirty-two;
scholars, twenty-'UKj hundred and ten,
average attendance seventeen hundred;
school population, four thousand five hun
dred and twenty-niii", thereby leaving
twenty-four bundled and nineteen children
who do not utten 1 any school. What a
sad thought! Where are the reapers? Get
ready your sickles, men and women of
Alexander county, and go forth to garner
in the sheaves f r the ' Harvest Home."
Amount expended for support of S. S.,
three hundred and seventy-five dollars.
Rev. snarritt reported thirty-two dollars
from tho Methodist School Missionary col
lectioty M. Eisterday also reported re
ceived into church membership sixty
scholars in the several branches. The pres
ident, Mr. Strode, male a statement that it
was almost impossible to hear from the
diluent precincts by correspondence. He
thought our scho ils not so well attended
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. Scurritt in a
little talk about "Winning Soul." Rev.
Mr. George then addressed the convention
on "Studying the Lessons." He gave soino
new ideas handling his subject with ability.
The seaoon was dismissed to meet in the
evening for the election of officer mid to
hear an address from Mr. Jacobs.
At the evening service, tho tlrst thing in
order was the election of officers. Mr.
Strode and M. Easterday, the president and
secretary of last year, were nominated and
elected again for this year, olsoan executive
commit'en of three were elected to serve,
R. P. Scott, Georgo Christman and P. C.
Barclay. The newly elect president, Mr.
Strode, gave an important speech, urging
thu people to work. Mr. Jacobs followed
with an address on missionery work.
