Mr. Russell is supported by an unusually

Mr. Harry Walker has concluded to
dispense with bis brass band for a while
and the band will play its farewell tune to
the Cairo public at the Tenth street stand
to-morrow night. Under the tutorship of
Prof. Goss tbe band was beginning again
to be a source of much entertainment to
many citizens every night, and these will
regret its demise.
Some lime ago a Dr. Cowan, who was

Mr. Walton Wright, superintendent of
the box factory, has taken steps to guard
against fire in the wilderness of lumber sur
rounding tho factory. All along the exten
sive tramways at regular distances he has
had barrels of water placed with several
iron buckets for each. The precaution is
certainly a wise one in view of the great
area over which tho tramway spreads and
the great quantities of lumber piled up on
either side of its entire length.
The concert to be given at the Tenth
street stand to-night by Harry Walker's
band, if the weather is favorable, will be
an elaborate one, which the public should
not fail to hear. The band certainly de
serves the compliment of a good audience,
and will not fail to entertain it. A good
audienco at the stand and another at the
theatre would be duly appreciated by Prof.
Goss and by Mr. Walker.
A new sawmill has been started in the

ground and is being put in position. The
company is composed of Mr. J. W. Spies,

The company will be ready for business in

The Pulaski Patriot ,haa taken unto
itself a patent side and increased its size
to an eight column folio. As a rule it is
regarded by newspaper men generally as
an improvement to discard the patent even
though at tho expense of the siz0f a paper;
but the Patriot seems to think the reverse
of this is true. Well, all right. Bradley is
the doctor in this case. Tho Patriot will

It appears from testimony taken by
the coroner'a jury last night that Jno. Lally
was not at work under the car at the time
he was injured ; but was standing behind
it and was knocked down when the cur was
set in motion, falling down right in front
of the wheels. Mr. Walsh, Lally's assist
ant, was under tho car when it was struck,
but ho had seen tli trt'iiM fnr- ayanm nnd
got out just in time to save himself, roeciv
ing only a bump on the head. There was
not much work to do on the car and they
expected to get through with it in a tew
minutes before any switching would be done
on the track, hence they did not put out a
red flag as is customary.
The race between Schroeder's "Wm.
G." and Bower's "Oyster Terror1' did not

Gray name off. Both horses mn well, one a
little a head of the other at tbe sttrt; but
they soon evened up and remaiutd so until
they came in. The judges declared a it tie,
but the owners of the horses were dissatis
fied with this and quarrelled, each claiming
a victory for his animal. The little croad
that had been drawn there hung around a
while in the hope of seeing either a fight or
another race, but they were disappointed in
both and soon scattered for down town.
Yesterday morning the biso ball club
for which John L. Sullivan pitched at St.
Louis some days ago, arrived in this city
on the Short Line, en r"Uto for Memphis to
play a match game with a club there to
day. Arrived here the sleeper became dis
abled in some way, and the boys had to lay
over for the 10:30 train. In the mean
time they all took breakfast at The Halli
day. Their names wcro Geo. McGiunis,
Cliff Carroll, J. L. Quest, C. McGilwan, H.
C. McNair, C. Comisky, T. Mullane, Wm.
Ewing, T. P. Sullivan. The report was cur
rent for some time that the l-.st named was
Jno. L. Sullivan, and a large crowd gath
ered at the incline during the morning,
only to be cruelly deceived.
Coroner Fitzgerald lust evening sum
moned a jury of six to inquire into the cir
cumstances of the death of John L'il!y.
The jury met at police headquarters last
night and ex -.mined a number of witnesses
who testified to facts as given in an account
elsewhere. Dr. G. G. Parker testified that
the man's hips were crushed, and that the
immediate cauee of death was nervous
shock and internal hemmorhage. The jury-
was in until after 9 o'clock, and finally re
turned a verdict in accordance with the
facts as elsewhere detailed, blaming no
one for the accident. The jury was com
posed of Mr. Jno. G. Turner, foreman; Mr.
Wm. White, Mr. Samuel Burger, Mr. E.
Spencer and Mr. W. II. Schutter.
Tho number of newspapers and maga
zines published in the United Stales and
Dominion of Canada has reached the enor
mous figures nf 13,283, or an increase ot
1,115 over the number of lavt year. Al
though the population of the United States
is only twelve times larger than that of I
Canals, the Americans publish in'irly
twenty times more newspapers and periodi
cals than Canadian. The totfil in the
United States is 12,607 and in tbe Dominion
G'!G. These publications are classified as
follows: Dalies. 1,2'J7; tri-weeklies, 70;
semi-weeklies, 102; Sundays, 120; weeklies,
10,053; bi-mothies, 11. These ktatistics
indicate a general increase in publications
for the past throughout the whole country,
especially among the weeklies. There has,
however, been no increase in the territories
of Oregon, Indiana ami Wyoming, and none
in the provinces of British Columbia, New
Brunswick, Northwest territory, Prince Ed
ward Island and Newfoundland, where the
number remains tho same, although the
changes have been numerous.
A white man named Jno. Lally was in
jured in the Illinois Central yards, near the
incline, yesterday morning in a manner that
caused his death about two hours afterward.
He was one of the c:ir repairers employed
in the yards and was engaged in repairing
a car standing on a side-track. He was
near the car working at some
piirt of the running gear, but bad failed to
place a red flag in the ground ahead of the
car as is customary in order to warn switch
men and engineers not to shove other cars
onto the track. Au engine was engaged in
switching cars in the yards and shoved
another car onto this side track, which
struck the flat-car with considerable force
before Lally was aware thtt it was coming.
Lally was standing behind the car holding
onto an iron bar that Mr. Welsh, who was
under the car, was driving out with a
edge. When the car was struck the end
of the bar struck him in the stomach and
knocked him down. He fell with his hips
across tho rail and was caught by the ad
vancing wheel and Bhoved along just about
six leet, when the car stopped
and moved forward again nearly a
foot. His hips were crushed horribly.
The wounded man was taken up, placed on
a flat car nnd brought down to tho stone
depot. Though he must have been in great
pain, be was very quiet and answered ques
tions almost as deliberately as though ho
were not hurt. He protested against being
sent to St. Mary's Infirmary and requested
to bo taken to his homo on Eighth street,
near Cedar, which request was complied
with. Arrived at home Drs. Parker were
called, and they did all in their power for
the wounded man; but he he was beyond
the stving power of surgery and medicine,
and died about an hour afterwards. Ho
was about thirty years of ago; he leaves a
wile and two or three children; ho has lived
in this city for six or eight years, and been
an excellent citizen and a universally liked
neighbor. His remains will probably be
