Chief Myers arrested two elick confi

had not given a performance here, or an ex

date at some other p iint. They took the
gentle hint and departed hurriedly.

There seemed to be an unusually 1 fi,e
number of commercial tourists in the i '1)'

A young boy named Beloise wis
brought into the office of Dr. Parker Friday
night, in a helplessly sick condition. He
was afflicted with a bad case of ma
larial fever and eoro leg. He was brought
from some point on the Texas & St. Louis
road, and was bound for his home some
where in Central Illinois. He was left in
the office with the doctor, and he gave him
such relief as he could. But the men who
brought him did not return, and the doctor
notified Chief Myers, who had the boy
taken to St. Mary's Infirmary for further
Two colored bucks, who were evidently
steamboat rousters or deck hands, bad a
knock down last night, jut asMie Ste. Gen
evieve was backing out from the wharf.
They made some terrible passes at each
other, and the blows were falling fast
and heavy, when a copied woman, who
was standing quietly by looking at the
"mill," saw that her honey w.is the under
dog in the fight. She yelled "police!'1
which caused the twodnrkit ? to make tracks
and the woman followed. They soon dis
appeared in the dark, an. 1 A course escaped
the clutches of the officer'.
The bird population f Wisconsin is
estimated at 66 per square mile, or 3,065,
000 in the State. Each bird is assumed to
eat fifty insects a day, or 6,000 for the
summer. Hence, all the birds will con
sume over 31,385,000 insects a year. Add
to these the amount of work these
birds do in their southern homes, aud we
have a low estimate of the influence tliey
exert over insect life. Multiply these
figures by forty-eight for the states and ter
ritories, and we arrive at the conclusion not
only that our bird population is very large,
but, also, that without it, our bun popula
tion would soon be so large that it would
eat us up.
Our merchants justly complain of the
discrimination made against Cairo by trans
portation lines in freight rates. A certain
rate is charged for hauling, say a car load
of grain to points south from Cairo, and at
the same time the railroad will haul a simi
lar carload from points half way to Chicago
and from St. Louis through Cairo at the
same or a less rate. The remedy, it seems
to us, is, to some extent, in our own hands.
Let the Board of Trade become a live kick
ing body, kick against the railroads, against
their agents, against the steamboat lines
and keep on kicking until somebody does
something that will mend the matter.
They have organizations in St. Louis just
for that purpose, also in Chicago and why
not in Cairo.
Next Tuesday the poople of Cairo and
the county will be called upon to vote for a
County Commissioner to fill vacancy oc
curring by reason of the expiration of the
terra of Thos. W. Halliday. At the earnest
solicitation of friends of Mr. Halliday and
the county, be has consented to stand for
re-election. ' During bis years of service in
that capacity, he has thoroughly learned the
needs of the county, and his work in the
past shows his ability aud fitness for the po
sition. That he will be elected there is not
a doubt, and very likely there will be no
opposing candidate; there should be none.
The people will alto vote for or against
stock running at large. The proposition
only includes cowb and hogs, but in this
city that means all stock that has been
permitted to run at large. We believe it
would be an advantage to owners of cows
in Cairo, to have the vote cat against the
atock. It would bring into use the herder,
as in other cities, and stock, at a minimum
figure, would be taken out in the morning
to their range, cared for and brought safely
back in the evening.
A new sewer that will drain all the
ground on each side of the street should be
laid on Tenth street, at least from the gov
ernment hospital grounds down to WaBh
ington avenue. There are several reasons
why Bucb a sewer should be put down.
Tenth street is thickly settled, is the prin
cipal cross street in the city, being the only
one that runs without a break, from the
Ohio to the Mississippi river, and is the
thoroughfare for people rom Greenfield's
Ferry into the town. It is also the street
upon which brick from the brick yards and
sand from the sand pits are brought ioto
the city, The street is higher than the ad
jacent lots, consequently water can not be
carried from them by the gutters as in many
other parts of tho city. A sewer laid down
in the center of the street would not only
keep it in good condition, but would also
allow property owners to Up it on each side
at intervals and by laying branch sewcra
keep their premises free from accumulations
of rain or sipewater, and thus add greatly to
the looks, clcinliuess and health of the
Dr. Ebon R. McArthur, colored, who
some few years ago created considerable
sensation in this vicinity by instituting suit
against the Jas. Fisk, which formerly run
as a packet in the Cairo and Paducah trade.
His complaint was that the officers of the
boat refused to let him and his wife eat at
the first table with the white passengers. A
seDarate tablo was provided for them, and
they refused to occupy it. Just after the
suit was filed he was arrested in some small
town near the city ot St. Loui3 for attempt
ing to rapoa white girl, in which he was as
sisted by his pretened wife. He wns tried
and convicted, and got off with an eigh
teen mouths' sentence to the Jefferson City
Peniteutiary, where he served out his full
sentence, shortly after which he appears in
a new role, in which he succeeds in swind
ling an innocent, unsuspecting farmer out
of several hundred dollars. For this last
act he was tried and sentenced to serve an
other term in the sime penitentiary for one
year. He has again donned the striped suit,
which 3liould have been for ten years in
stead of one.
PADUCAH A PORT OF ENTRY.
Intelligence from Washington announces
the appointment of Mr. John W. Cobbs, of
Paducah, as surveyor of customs at Padu
cah. In view ot the fact that the govern
ment bad decided to cut down the number
of customs district, people here were be
ginning to fear that Paducah would be lef t
out in th'e cold. Our dispatches from the
capital prove the contrary. It is quite
probable now that Cairu will be placed in
the Paducah instead of tdo St. Linis dis
trict. The government, like the Illinois
Central railroad company, has evidently
made up its mind to abandon poor old
Cairo to the floods of the mighty rivers,
which sweep by on either side, and her
fate. In twenty years from now not a
brick or stone will be left to mark the site
of the metropohsof the sucker 6tate Egypt."
The above is another nonsensical spirit ot
the blowhard, who represents the News at
Paducah. Cairo seems to worry the gen
tleman, but for his benefit we will infoim
the effusionist that Cairo stands silidly
independent and alone and is a seperate
district of itself without being attached to
the tail of any other district. The article
is another specimen of the "windy News
