Carbondale Criterion-Democrat : "The
Texas, Toledo & Rio Grande railway is at
last fixed up. A Pittsburg firm has the
contract to build fence and equip the whole
road. Mr. Tennant of tho firm has signed
the contract and has gone to New York,
and will return with 50,000, and all back

road that (lied papers witli Circuit Clerk
Irvin, in this county, about a year ago, for
right or-way into this city over the track of
the St. Louis and Cairo road.
A slight collisaion occurred yesterday
morning on the Mississippi levee, at a point
not far from the gas works, where the tracks
of the Wabash, St. Louis and Cairo road
cross eachother. An engine of the latter
road was struck by a car that was beiug
backed down on the former, and ti e result
was only a derailment of the forward trucks
of the ecgine and the demolishing of some
attachment to one of the cylinders. But
little time was lost in replacing the engine,

All day yesterday Mr. Phil Saup'sshow
window on Washington avenue was hidden
from view by a inotly crowd of children
aid citizens generally, intently watching a
young aligator displayed in a rustic rage
in tho window. The animal was sent to Mr
Saup by Mr. Ed. Close, who is in a drug
(.tori at Ocalla, Florida. When Mr. S.
opened the box, not knowing what it con-
lined, tho little devil made a frantic
lunge for libertyjumping from the counter
into the middle of tho floor and there snap
ing and hissing in a manner that proved
him to be chock full of tight.
Another attempt was made yesterday
morning to burn down the Cuhl building
on Ohio levee, occupied by N. B. Thistle-
wood & Co.; but, as before, the attempt
proved futile. The exact nature of the at
tempt this time could not be ascertained,
as tho means used had already been con
sumed when the fire was discovered. Capt.
Thistlewood and family roomed up stairs
ovi'r the fctore, ami about 3 o'clock in the
morning Mrs. Thistlewood was awakened
by a strong smell of smoke in the room.
She aroused her husband and ho arose im
mediately. About this time some one rat
tled at the door down stairs and gave the
alarm of fire. Every part of the house
from the basement up was filled with thick
smoke, so that it was with some difficulty
that the seat of the fire was finally discov
ered in th j rear end of the basement, at the
window of the left hand corner. The win-
low sash had burned out and the flames
were beginning to lick the floor above
when the (ire alarm was Bounded. When
the engines arrived the tire had caught
the door and was making as good headway
as possible under all the circumstances;
but it was soon extinguished and the dam
age to the building was comparatively
slight, not to exceed $100. The basement
is used by Messrs, Jesse Ilinklo & Son for
storing meats and lard, and thny had over
a thousand buckets of lard and a large quan
ity of meats In it at the time. While the
fire was confined to the rear left hand cor
ner of the basement, ami did not touch
much meat, the smoke and the heat did
considerable damage to tho lard, and some
also to the meat, in all parts of tho room;
but the damage is probably amply covered
by insurance. Tuu house it, alao insured

questions about which there hariys a thick
veil of mystery. It is evident, however
that tho fellow is a bold ono and persistent
in his purpose His next effort, which may
bo confidently expected, may reveal his
identity, and then tho severest penalty fixed
by the law upon such disasturdly work
should bo inflicted upon him.
-Mr. Williams, principal of tho ci.
ored schools, was tried and acquitted in
Magistrate Comings' court yesterday, unon
tho charge of having assaulted and strick

one of his scholars.
accompanied by his father and half a dozen
witnesses, follow scholars, while defendant
was alone. Tho former's father had employ
ed Mr. George Hendricks to conduct com
ulainant's side of the case and tho defen
dant was represented by Mr. D. T. Linegar.
The evidence proved very conclusively that
the punishment inflicted was but slight,
every sign ot it having disappeared tlio day
after it had been inflicted. Tho instrument
used was a strap, which, since corporal
punishment in the schools is warranted by
law, is probably,as tho court said in render
ing his decision, the best and safest instru
ment a teacher can uso in chastising re
fractory scholars, as uo serious injury can
be inflicted with it under ordinary circum
stances. Upon tho whole, this prosecution
bore upon its face very strong evidences of
malice. It comes from a source that has
been tho cause of former disturb
ances in the colored schools,
ami that, while contributing
little or nothing toward :.ie support of the
schools, it has shared in all the benefits
and done much to defeat the purposes for
which public schools are established. It is
known that, as a rule, the scholars of the
colored schools are harder to control than
those of any of the other public schools;
many of them look upon their teachers
with the utmost contempt, which was amply
proveu when Constable Sheehan served the
warrant on Prof. Williams, when the scholar
of the professor's room, who were out at re
cess, followed the officer into the school
and set up a most disgraceful
clamor against tho teacher, abusing huh
shamefully, and they were joined by a col
ored woman, mother of one of tho scholars,
who shook her fist in tho teacher's face and
threatened to do him bodily injury for hav
ing strapped ber child. This state of feel
ing among tho scholars is the result of
what they hear at home. Such parents as
Jenkins, who seem prejudiced against the
teacher, allow their prejudice to crop in
conversations in the presence of their chil
dren at home and infuse the same senti
ment into the children who learn to regard
their teacher with contempt, refuse to
learn their lessons, play truants and remain
ignoramuses, much to the surprise of their
parents. We ore not in favor of corpotal
punishment in the schools; we believe that
if a good teacher cannot control any one of
his scholars, that scholar should be expell
ed, and this should be the
extent of the punishment that
may be adininistred by a teacher.
But when a parent first excites in his child
a contempt for its teacher, and when the
child is mildly punished for willful dis
obedience, magnifies it into an inhuman
assault forbidden by the lawsof the state,
ignores the teacher himself, and the
school board which is established by law
for the express purpose ol regulating all
matters pertaining to the schools, and re
sorts at once to the courts, drairains the
teacher before them as a common criminal
when a purunt does this and is sustained
therein by any considerable number of
others, then, indeed, it becomes a question
of some importance to those upon the whom
burden of sustaining the colored schools in
our city rests, w hether or not the thousands
they pay out every year to educate the
colored youth amonj.' us arc not so manv
thousands thrown away.
Here is the sequal t ) the little piece of
crookedness practiced y two gentlemen
some nights ago upon an unsuspecting
young citizen of New Burnside, of which
affiir The Bulletin made mention at tho
time : In order that the sequal may be un-
lerstood we will preface it with a brief
rehearsal of the main facts, and wo will say
first that it is not necessary to give the
names of any but the principal actor in the
unholy business, the man who dishonored
the badge of an officer of the law by
committing an act little less than highway
robbery upon aa unsuspecting stranger, and
then disposed of the booty for money to
men who didn't know but what they were
honestly ob'ained. Tho victim, it will be
remembered came to a hotel in the city at
night, in an intoxicated condition. He
created a disturbance in his room and was
put out. Ho went to police headquarters
where he found Sergeant Mihanny ami
Officer B .uglier, to whom he complained
that be had been robbed by a woman of
1W5. He got a warrant for the woman, and
the officers, telling him to wait at tho head
quarters, went to tho hotel to arrest tho
woman, but sho had fled. Search of tho
man's room led to tho discovery of $85 un
der the pillow, which, together with the
man's watch, were held by tho clerk of tho
hotel. The officers returned to headquarters,
but tho man bail loft. Inquiry was undo
by them and ..icy trackod him up Com-
merciel avenue and ascertained that at
Thirteenih street hu had been met by two
men, u negro and a white man, tho former
being none other than John Gladuey, who
is reputed to lio a deputy sheriff. These
two men took tho young fellow in charge
aud led him up tho avenue, and when they
had come to a dark place, Gladuey put
him uuder arrest "for being found in a
suspicious locality." Tho poor fellow was
told to fork over what he ha I, was searched
and deprived of a pistol and a silver watch
chain all ho had of any value except his
clothes. Then, InBtead of being taken to
jail, ho was turned looso and bo mado his
way homo somehow without calling for bis
money or watch. Sergeant. Mahanny wrote
him that his money and watch wore hero,
awaiting his order, and made sevcr.il futile
efforts to got tho pistol and chain also, from
Gladuey, tho latter declining to givo thorn
up, Baying that ho had as much right to
keep them until tho owner
c line as tho sergeant. Thus tho
matter atood when last Friday tho victim
