The agent of the company in which
Mr. N. Feith's property was insured arrived
in the city yesterday and went to work to
adjust the loss. Meters. Madden and Fobs,
carpenters, wece agreed upon to make eati
mates of the cost of replaoing the property
in its original condition.
The construction train and a force of
men were expected down by Cipt. Will
iams on tbe St. Louis St Cairo road last
evening, to resume the work of raising the
tracks to the new gradd clear down to tbe
point. The delay has been caused partly
by the cave up the road and parly by tbe
want of water for thejengine here.
A new boiler is being made at the
machine sbops of the St. Louis and Cairo
road, at East St. Louis, to take the place of
the one .that blew up at tbe freight depot
here a snort time ago. The new boiler will
be ready in a day or two and be sent down
here immediately to furnish steam to run
the pumping aparatus and hoisting machine
at the depot.

Some mischievous rascal amused him
self yesterday by cutting clothing displayed
on racks in front of several of the clothing
houses on Commercial avenue. A coat be
longing to a suit worth about $20, belong
ing to Mr. Htmuul Meyers at the corner of
Ninth street, was slashed from the collar
clear down to the waist, and a pair of pants
hanging in front of Mr. Sadler's establish
ment, worth $0, were cut wide open at tbe
lower extremeties. The mischief was evl
dently done by some one passing with a
sharp razor. Nojclua to the guilty party
could be tound.
There was no change in tbe state of af
fairs about tbe Texas Si St. Louis railroad
yards late last eight. Paymaster Drake re
turned from Bird's Point to remain here
awaiting further orders from headquarters
There was no intimation that the company
would accede . to the demands of tbe
"Brotherhood," and hence no move was
made by any of the men. Employes of tbe
road to the number of fifty or more came
over from Bird's Point and loitered about
the city, paying occasional visits to tbe
office of the company here, but no disorder
wu noted from any of them and none is
At tbe special meeting of the oity
council last night, tbe principal business
wu the street committee's report upon work
done under its direction in the way of
street filling in various parts of tbe city, and
the city attorney wu ordered to apply for
judgment against the owners ot property
abutting the improvement, and a petttlon
from the St. Louis St Cairo railroad com
paoy for permission to cross upper Wuh
iugton avenue, which was referred to the
same committee of citicsns and councilman
which took action in matters of this na
ture concerning the same company in for
mer years. Alderman Hughes presided
when the council convened, bui gava way
to tbe mayor who soon after appeared.
Several citizena hers have accommoda
ted employes of the Texas and St, Louis
road from time to time during the last three
months, by cashing some of their time
checks, discounting the checks, of course,
in sums sufficient to pay them for the trou
ble of collecting the money, the interest en
the outlay and the risk of losing it entirely.
Others have sold goods to small dealera
along the road, which small deslers depend
in many cases upon the employes of the
road for Jhe money with which to pay for
these goods, and tbe failure of the company
to pay the latter renders both small mer
chant and big merchant uneasy. It is
probable that from six to eight thousand
dollars of the , money ouo the employes of
the road will, when paid to them, find its
way almost immediately into the hands of
tbe enterprising business men and bloated
money lenders of tbis cityn let the
money be paid without unnecessary delay.
Mr. Robert Jones, for some time in
charge of the Illinois Central wharf-boat,
has received tbe appointment of agent at
this point ot the Southern Transportation
company, vice Capt. W. P. Wright, re
signed. Mr. Jones is to be congratulated
upon his good fortune, and none who know
him will say that be does not deserve the
promotion. He was highly recommended
by some of our best citizens, is well known
aod popular among shippers, and has had
years ot experience in river business. He
will take charge to-dav, occupying the
same office that Capt. Wright did. Capt.
Wright will leave the city for Southern
California, where he will locate perma
nently. His departure will be generally re
gretted, in this community. Thegr many
friends Will unite in the wish that the
Captiiu and Mra. Wright may find all they
wish for in their new home, aod will har
bor a lingering hope that they may con
clude, in the end, as many truants have
done before them, that "Cairo Is tbe best
place after all."
Another good audience greeted the
Shook & Collier's "Lights o' London" com
bination at the Opera House lut night As
before, the audience wu an epitome of
tbis and neighboring communities. A
large delegation came down on the Fowler
from Paducah aod Metropolis and Mound
City. Even Charleston, Mo., wu repre
sented, and cities along the Wabash and
Illinois Central railroads. The audience
waa cultured one and expressed Its ap
preciation of the performance frequently
and enthusiastically. The play Itself Is
more interesting than most others; there is
much of tbe droll character acting, which
keeps the audience in splendid humor.
The characters, as a rule, are well sus
tained. But the incidents of the play be
come intensely interesting and hold the
undivided attention of the audience, when
taken in conjunction with the stage scenes
accompanying them, which are startlingly
real in appearance, and in some instances
perfectly grand. The audience last night
wu well pleased, as wu evidenced by tbe
abundant hearty applause. To-night is the
Last evening the first steps ware taken
by Alder mi n McHale to execute an impor
tant work directed to be done by Col. Tay
lor, on Ohio levee, between Eighth and
Twelfth streets. A force of teams and men
were put to work hauling poles and brush
cut from the "Island" near the "Point,"
which are to be used in the construction of
mattrestcs alttng the base of the Ohio levee,
between Eigbth and Twelfth streets. Tbe
mattresses will be each about twenty-five
by thirty feet square and a foot thick,
weighed down with rock.. From seventy
tive to a hundred of these will be construct
ed and sunk, which will cover every foot of
the base of the levee between the'- points
named. Alderman McHale has supervision
of the work and guarantees that the work,
when finished, will effectually and perma
nently put a stop to any abrasions at any
atae of water, where tbe mattresses lay.
Ho has had much experience in' laying mat
tresses on the Mississippi tide of late, ))
ing cleared nearly forty acre of a thick
growth of brush for the construction of mat
tresses there, and superintended the con
struction aod sinking of theu mattresses
every day for weoks. He has become quite
an engineer in this line of work. The
completion of the work ss contemplated
on the Ohio levee will render entirely solid
the only spot in our ' great levees that
showed any signs of abrasion and that bad
hitherto remained unattended to, excepting
the stone wall built to protect the publie
street of the city. Col. Taylor has still
three force of men and teams at work on
the outer slope of the Mississippi levee, and
the St. Louis & Cairo company will resume
operations there to-day. With the fortifi
cations about ua that withstood twice in
quick succession the unparalleled floods of
"81 and 82, now made much higher and
stronger than they were when tbey achieved
those victories, no man can with any show
of reason fear for Cairo's security in the
future. . -
What fate imposes, man must needs abide,
But from St. Jacobs Oil, no pain can hide.
