A lady living up town telephoned
Chief Myers yesterday afternoon that a man
was making the rounds of that neighbor
hood soliciting orders for enlarging pictures
and that upon being refused an order be
came very insulting. The chief started
at once in search of the fellow
and found him au hour or two after
wrrds, persuing his business in the central
part of the city. The fellow's name was
McCoy; he had no license and was fined
$10 and costs by Justice Robinson, which
he paid. If the victims of the ill-breeding
of such fellows were not generally refined
ladies who would not condescend to appear
against them in the police courts, they
would probably be made to suflfcr for their
ruffianly behavior and language. The
chief has resolved to give peddlers his
special attention tor a while now, until the
"boom" that seems now to prevade ped
dlerdom and that seems to hive its centre
in this city, shall have shifted to some other
point more able to bear the atlliction.
Prominent men from all parts of the
country, who are deeply interested in Miss
issippi river improvement, assembled at St.
Louis, have caused petitions to be circu
lated throughout the Mississippi valley, for
signatures by the people, which read as fol
lowj : "The value to the country of a com
prehensive improvement of the Mississippi
river, and its navigable tributaries, can not
be estimated. Whenever the improvement
of theso great rivers becomes complete, the
question of cheap transportation will be for
ever settled; a question of transcendent im
portance alike to all of our own people, and
of common interest to producers at borne
and consumers abroad. These natural
channels of communication are the property
of the government. They bind together the
various sections of the country, politically
and commercially, and their perfect im
provement and supervision should be the
especial care of the nation. The people,

THE PLANTER'S WIFE
is an innocent, untortunate, sunering wo
mon, entangled in a web of untoward cir
cumstances, and the audience is properly
taken into confidence at once. She fights
in the right and everybody wants to help
her; she conquers, and all rejoice at her
vic'ory. The play is clean and bright and
the interest in the story never flags. As
the injured wite, striving against great
wrong and a complication of unfortunate
circumstances, which apparently point to
ward her guilt, Miss Emily Rigl certainly
comprehends and acts the part with a most
perfect conception of what is expected of
her. The part is intensely emotional, and
fitted to the genius of a Clara Morris or a
Mr. Lacy, the manager of the combina
tion, is painstaking and gifted, and gets
everything out ot the character of Col. Gra
ham which there is in it.
The piece was purchased last season by
Mr. Licy from Tillotson for six thousand
dollars, and he re-wrote the greater part of it,
and after securing the excellent company
by which it will bo presented here, started
out on the road, gathering fame and for
tune as he went.

The wedding of Miss Annie Ford aad
Mr. Samuel Shumaker took place last
night at the residence of the bride's parents,
at the corner of Fourteenth street and
Washington avenuo. Rev. J. W. Scarritt,
of the Methodist church, performed the
cersmony. The parties to the pleasant
event aro well known in the city, and are
among our most oetimablo young people.
The bride is the youngest daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. E. C. Ford. Her wedding day
was also her eighteenth birthday. The
groom is head engineer on the transfer
steamer Morgan, which responsible position
he has held tor a year or longer, giving the
best of satisfaction ta his employers.
The wedding was attended by quite a
number of invited guests who comfortably
rilled the parlors of the residence, and who,
when the ceremony was over, deluged the
happy couple with congratulations, and
then heartily participated in the usual as
cessones to such occasions.
The presents were numerous, and many of
them fine. We were unable to obtain a
full list last night; but this, with a more
dotailod account of the wedding, will ap
pear in our next.
Tag Bulletin joins the msny friends of
Mr. and Mrs. Shumaker in wishing them a
long and happy life.
IMPORTANT REAL ESTATE IM
PROVEMENTS. THE 81NOER MANCFACTCKINQ CO.
For some days paBt the Singer company
has been making preparations for some ex
tensive buildings to be commenced on the
company's premises in the early part of
spring. Large quantities of sand and other
material is being stored upon the ground
ready for use when the signal to start is
given. Yesterday Mr. Leighton Pine,
superintendent of the company, arrived in
the city, and from him we learn that the
company thinks to erect next spring sev
eral additional buildings, one of which is
to be of large dimensions. The details have
not yet been finally determined, but they
will be as soon as Mr. McKenzie
arrives. Mr. McKenzie came ove
from Europe and landed in New York city
yesterday, and after visiting the various
works of the company east of us, he w i'l be
here during the first week of December.
So far as now known, the main building
will be a substantial brick structure, two
hundred feet long, sixty feet wide and
three stories high. This building is to be
furnished with machinery from the base
ment to the top floor, for the purpose of
supplying the company with tables for its
sewing machines. This addition to the
factory here, as it now is, will increase its.
capacity to just about double what it is
now. At present the factory turns out
two thousand taLles every day, so that it
will then turn out twenty-four thousand
tables per week.
. Tne other buildings will be also of brick
and much smaller, comprising engine room,
etc. The company has already had con
structed a Corliss engine of unusual size
and power, which w ill take the place of the
engine now in use and run the machinery
in all the buildings.
The South Bend works of the company
are also constantly in full operation, turn
ing out from forty thousand to forty-five
thousand pieces of cabinet work jof differ
ent kinds per day. But these two extensive
establishments together failed to supply the
number f tables needed by the company
to meet the great demand from all over the
world for Singer sewing machines, and lsst
year the company was compelled to con
tract with parties in St. Louis to furnish
additional tables. But now the company
is about to increase lU capacity for manu
facturing tables to such an extent as to en
able them to meet any increased demand
for their machines, and the fact that it con
templates making this increase ot capacity
in the works here, instead of at South
Bend, is certainly significant. The com
pany has had its works in operation here
for several years now, during which period
Cairo has not been at its best, having had
to contend with several extraordinary
floods in quick succession, which bad no
parallel in the history of these rivers. Its
representative men have become thoroughly
acquainted with Cairo at its worst, and
this "worst" did not prove to be near as
bad as was the condition of many of her
sister cities on the rivers. They know
every unfavorable circumstance with which
they have to contend, and have certainly
given every point, pro and con, its full
weight. The fact that after all this, such
shrewd business mon as are at the head of
a corporation of the magnitude of the Singer
c tmpany and successfully manage its bus''
ness, are inclined to give Cairo the prefer
ence when it comes to investing thousands
of the corporation's money this fact
ought certainly to weigh heavily in Cairo'!
favor, even in the minus ol those wiio are
strongly prejudiced against her.
The Singer company is also making very
extensive additions to its works elsewhere,
and establishing new ones, both in this and
in the old world. At Montreal, Canada,
a factory has been recently established
that is to supply the Canada trade exclu
sively, with a capacity for five hundred
complete machines every week. At Kil
bowie, Scotland, near Glasgow, another is
now being built that covers forty-eight
acres, and will have a capacity for produc
iug nine thousand complete machines per
week. Still another large factory is to be
put up at Vienna, Austria. During last
year the company sold upwards of six hun
dred and fifty thousand machines, being
more than three-fourths of all the sewing
machines Bold in the world during the
year. By the side of the several graud in
stitutiona of the company elsewhere, the
works here are very insignificant, but for
this part of the country they aro of more
than ordinary importance, and their en
largement will be looked forward to with
much interest by our people.
