Paducah News: "Capt. Joe Fowler is
authority for the statement that there is no
truth in the rumo llle, Pa
ducah and Cairo Packet company will con
tinue three boats in the line and run through
to Cairo, after high water sets in. As Capt.
Joe is a member ot tho directery of the
company it is probable that be is informed
ou the subject."
The Bulletin has made use of no
inguage in connection with the street rais
ing discussion that was uot strictly proper.
If anything The Bulletin has said gave
the Argus man offense, it was because of
tho truth it conveyed. Strong expressions
were probably used, as they were necessary,
for the Argus was becoming entirely oblivi
ous to truth in its utternanccs.
A man named Tom Gorman was
brought here on the Texas narrow-gauge
Sunday from JoneBboro, Ark., and conveyed
to the hospital to be treated for wounds
given him by drunken man at Jonesboro
He had bad cut across the wrist and a stab
in the right breast, which Drs. Parker pro

Ex-Mayor M. B. Sidler, of Centralia,
and tho loading spirit ot that place, was in
tho city yesterday looking about for a
chance for a good investment in real eBtate.
He believeB that Cairo'B salvation lies in
tiding up and whether he invests or not
will probably depend entirely upon wheth
er the high grade is adopted or not. Mr.
Sadler owns eight or ton of tho finest busi
ness homes an 1 resid mses in C jntralia an I
is known at homo as a man of excellent
j'j dgment and public spirit.
The officials who were here, of the I. C.
R. R., General Manager Clark, Supt.
Jeffries, Traffic Manager Tucker an i Judge
Wm. II. Green, wore at Metropolis yester
day looking into the prospects of the
Wetaug & Metropolis R. R.; and after ex
aminlng into tho facilities for business by
our sister city, took to the woods and fol
lowed the line of the contemplated railroad
to Wetaug. They took supper at Anna and

The Cairo boys went to Paducah Sun
day on the steamer Ella Kimbrough to
wallop tho Eckfords of that city. About
one hundred people trom hero, Mound City
and Metropolis accompanied them. Tho
boat left here at 8 o'clock sharp aud reach
ed there in good time. The Paducah boys
and people were ready for the fray. About
five hundred pooplo witnessed the opening
of tho game, and tho crowd grew as tho
play preceded- The game was not a bit

than ever before. They bail agreed to let
the I'aducah club make eight or ten tallies
during the first five or six innings and make
none thumsulvo, then do a little work for
themselves and close the game with a brii
liaut victory. This was not a wise resolu
tion as the result proved. They catried
out the first part of the proposition very
nicely, They let tho Puducah boys make
all they could in tho first six innings,
which was nine tallies, and theu they be
ruu to play for themselves, honing con-
ti(j(;)t,v t0 t,luir opponent's uiue and

three innings. It is truo, they "scooped
irTnll tlio tallies that were tnado in those
tirui) innings, but they fell two sluntof
making a tie and tho game closed with a
score of seven to nine in favor of the Kik-
torda. The Cairo boys wero too confident
of success and wanted too much glory out
of one game. Had they begun to piny t
tlic sixth inning instead of the seventh,
tin y would have coruo out victorious. Hut

Considerable excitement was created
yesterday afternoon bv two negro women
who quarrelled and fought over tho posses
sion of a child. The narties to the fracas
were Cbira Collins, wife of Jno. Collins,
and Cora Htmpton, tho former being the
aggressor. The child belongs to Jno. Col
lins, but Clara is its step-mother. Before
his marriage to Clara Jno. g ive tho child
to Cora to rear and she has taken care of it
ever since. But it seems that Liars was de
termined to possess tho child and yester
day evening caught it and was about to
carry it in triumph to her own domicile
when Cora came forth and made a grab
for the child and got it bick after nearly
pulling it in two, Clara was arrested and
fined by Justice Ribinson for disturbing
the peace. In case a trial is had to decide
who shall possess tho child, a search war
rant should be sent out for a mm named
Solomon, called the wise, who flourished
s me years ago away out in the east.
L. W. R dx-rtson, cashier Box factory,
this city, received a telegram bringing sad
intelligence of the death of his aged grand
mother, his mother's mother, Mrs. A. M.
Byers, which occurred the 19th iust. in
Opelika, Ala., at the home of her daughter,
Mrs. Capt. Frank Watkins. Mrs. Byers
was the eldest sister of Gen. Albeit Sidney
Johnston the last of the family. She was
born in Mason Co., Ky., May 25tb, 1799,
SQ,1 therefore, In ber 85th year. Her
father, Dr. John S. Johnston, a pioneer re
sident of Ky., moved there in 1793 from
Connecticut, bringing with him three
sous, older than Mrs. Byers. One of whom
was the illustrious statesman, Josinh Stod-
d trd Johnston, who represented Louisiana
in the U. S. senate so many years. Mrs.
Byers has witnessed many eras in our coun
try's history; the war of 1812; the Black
Hawk war; the war for Texan indepence,
and tho last of Civil Strife, in all of which
she has seeu her nearest of kin sacrificed to
the God of War. Mrs.) Byers retained her
f aculties to a remarkablo degree up to her
death which was quiet and peaceful.
"Having reached on life's highway that
stone which marked her highest point and
being weaty for a moment, she lay down
by the wayside and fell into that dreamless
sleep that kihses down ber eyelids still."
The Argus persists in making the
grooest blunders in its figures as to tho cost
of a certain quantity of filling in this city
at a certain price. The Argus publisher
admits that bo is "not very good at figures,"
but claims that he "can do sums in simple
multiplication," and then proceeds as fol
lows: "The Bulletin claims an average
twenty-tool till innide the levees would cot
only eleven and a half millions of dollars.
This is greatly out of the way or we are
mistaken as to the area inBide the levees.
We roughly estimated the cost at $15,000,
000, but since the morning paper has taken
itsue with our figures, we have been mak
ing calculati'in on it, and find that our eti
miito was too low by considerable. The
cnnimou understanding is, that the lovet s
are i-evtn miles in length. Taking this as
the basis, n twenty-foot fill would make
03,242,000 2-;i cubic yards. This at thirty
cents per yard would cost eighteen million,
072 thousand and eight hundred dollars."
Now, we cau prove to any man that is
willing to see (which, of course, excludes
tho Argus man) that the publisher of the
Argus can not "do a simple sum in multi
plication," nor apply any oftho simplost rules
of arithmetic. The Bulletin's intimates
wero always nwU upou a basis of thirteen
hundred acres, which was commonly ac
cepted to be tho area enclosed by our
levees, aud upon this basis a twenty-foot
till at thirty centB per cubic yard would
amount to just what Tub Bulletin said
it would, something over eleven millions of
dollars. But tho Argus Bays that a twenty
foot fill on a plat of ground enclosed by
levees seven miles in length,
would contaiu 03,212,000 2-3 cubic
yards, which is grossly exagerated,
Ba wo will endoavor to show. One mile,
that is an English statute mile which con
tains 8 fut longs, or 320 rods, or 1,700 yards
would enclose 100 acres. Seven miles
would enclose seven times 100 acros, or
1,120 acres, which is just 180 acres less
intorecting at first
than The Bulletin has been figuring on
all along. Now an aero is a piece of ground
forty rods long and four broad, and it con
tains 100 square perches or rods, or 4,840
square yards or 43,500 square feet. If ono
acre contains 4,840 squaro yards, 1,120
acres will contain 1,120 x 4,840 square
yards, or 5,420,800 square yards. Now
twenty feet is equal to six and two-thirds
yards, and to fill 5,420,800 square yards to
tho depth of twenty feet would loquiro nix
and two-thirds times 5,420,800, or 36,138,
Ollti 2-d cubic yards of earth, which, at
thirty cents per cubic yard would amount
to just $10,841,000.00.
Wo do not profess to bo much of a math
amatician oursdf; all wo know about fig
ures was taught us during a term or two
in the Thirteenth street freo schools; but
wo are willing to wagor on the correctness
oi uie aoove ana suomit uiem to any
scholar iu the city. How tho Argus man
arrives at his extravagant results is a pro
found mystery to us as it must be to any
one elso who has not forgotten the multi
Beutou Stan lard : "Cairo basin dis
cussioti a pbin of filling up hor streets
above the high-water mark. Tub Bulle
tin says tho main cost will bo assvsned
ogainst tho property owners to bo benefited,
and they will be given a term of years in
which to pay it. Tho plan is a good ono,
if it will not cost more than the property
owners can pay. It would mako Cairo a
great city. It would insure her commercial
prosperity, which would give to her busi
ness men a golden harvest." Those who
are trying to inaugurate the work have
given all due attention to the ability of the
property holders to bear the expense, First
they induced the legislature to pass a cou
ple of bills under which poor property
bidders can pav fjr street filling, etc., when
they can't pay for anything else; and next
they propose to begin tho work where the
property holders are more than able nd
willing to have it begun, and prosecute it
ouly as npidly as the property holders in
the adjoining low districts become able and
willing to follow their high grade neigh
bors' good example.
Mr. B. O. Jones, of Metropolis, was in
the city Saturday and took occasion to call
on The Bulletin to state his side of the
case sought to brought agaiust him by Prof.
Smith. He says no clnirges have been made
gainst him, but that the examination of
mith and Special Agent Paine's visit here,
were to ascertain whether or not a charge
should bo made against him. He accepts
the fact that Paine left without making any
charges against him ss proof that Paine re
gaided the evidence as Dot good. He says,
though Smith reported that be had twen'y-
throe affidavits, ho furnished copies of only
five; that Paine was in Metropolis for a
week or longer, interviewed all tho affiants
an-1 received frnui some of them contradic
tions of the statements made by them iu the
affidavits; that the affidavits were illegally
obtained; that ho (Jones) never over-charged
any one, the cases in which be charged
more than the limit of the present law hav
ing been commenced under tho old law,
which permitted him to charge more than
$10 for each claim; that so far s the pro
ceedings that were to have been had before
Commissioner Candeo aro coii
corued, litre be found him
self in the same position occupied by the
victim of an investigation by a grand jury
w hich hears but ono side ot the case and
dotB not permit the victim to appear to de
fmd himself. Mr. Jones makes out a very
strong case for mi nisei f snd in the present
state of toe matter we have uo reason to
doubt that ho tells the truth. But neither
have we any reason to take back or amend
anything wc have said about the matter.
We insist that all tint Mr. Jones has
Baid for himself, or tho contrary if the con
trary wero the case, ought to have been
made the subject of proceedings beforo
Commissioner Cunden, beforo wdioru Smith,
the accusing witness, was summoned to
testify. Smith appeared but did not testify,
at lea-t the commissioner doesn't know any
thing about it. Ho bad a secret confab
with the special agent who constituted him
self L'nited States Commissioner, grand jury,
states attorney and defendant's counsel, and
in some way the matter was "fixed up."
The eiitcrtninmetit to bo presented at
the Opera House for three nights, begin
ning Thursday Sept. 27, with S iturday af

at once novel, entertaining and instructive.
The programme consists of sleight of hand
munipulution, mesmerism, spiritualism
with illusionists, of motto singers, etc.,
making up an evening of unusual ecope of
brilliaucy and wonder, ltoad tho adver
tisement in to-dav'i Bulletin.
Our old townsman Lon Daniels has
