There is more slush in tbs streets of
cities now than in the newspapers; but the
intelligent reading public will probably
perceive that this state of things is not se
much tbe fault of the newspapers as of the
elements not so much because of a
rise on the part of the enterprising press as
of a fall in the thermometers and barome
ters ot the country. On second thought,
however, we would prefer not have this
appologetic reasoning applied to tbe Cairo
This morning for the first time since

ice from in front of it. She succeeded yes
terday morning in reaching the toot of the
incline and made some transfers yesterday
afternoon in the usual way. After this she
will probably make her usual trips and
trains will be transferred as usual.
An opinion that is of considerable im
portance to stock men has just been ren
Uerud by the railroad and warehouse com
mission. A. J. Streeter, of New Windsor,
111., complained that the Chicago, Burling
ton A Quincy railroad has charged him on
a car load of stock, more than the lawful
rate. Tbs road set up the defense that the
rar in question was thirty feet long, where
as the standard car is but twenty-eight feet
long. The extra charge was mads on the
basis of the legal rate, and was for extra
car room furnished. The commissioners
decide that their schedule rate applies to
car loads, irrespective of the size of tbe
car, and that in the case under considera
tion the railroad company had made an

The plaintiff was represented by Mr. Geo

W. C. Mulkey. The case was concluded,
and the courn took it under advisement

-The Abe Lincoln Mutual Life and
Accident society, which takes tbe place of
the Widow's and Orphan's Mutual Aid
society, is now firmly established, with J
H. Robinson aa president and Mr. Thomas
Lewis as secretary. Tbe latter has been
actively engaged in bringing about tbe re
organization and has succeeded in getting
nearly all the members of the old society
to join the new organisation, besides many
who were not members of tbe old society.
A very attractive feature of the new society
ii the accident insurance, which entitle the
holder of a policy to $25 per week in case be
or she is disabled in an accident not result
that new members
have been added at the rate of about seven
ty-five per dty, since the new organization
has been thoroughly under way. f
A negro named Edward Dillard, aliu
, alias, alias, created a disturbance
in Scott's Congress about 1 :30 o'clock yes
terday morning and was shot in the left
breast by the bar-keeper, Charles Jonrs, the
ball glancing off and creating only a flesh
wound. Both were arrested by Officers
Cain and Boughner immediately after the
occurrence and yesterday brough before
Magistrate Comings for examination cr
trial. Dillard, etc., etc., exhonorated Jones
from all blame in the matter; saying that
he himself was the aggressor snd that Jones
only did what he ought to have done.
Jones was, of course, discharged upon this
testimony. But charges of disorderly con
duct were preferred by the officers against
each ot the prisoners and each was fined
$10 and costs. Dillard was given a stay of
execution on condition that he would leave
The fire of erly yesterday morning
broke out in the roof of the house occupied
by Mr. John Koehler, atter tbe house had
been closed for the day, aad all but a boy,
who sleeps there and "opens up" in the
morning, left. The origin was presumably
a defective flue. Tbe house wss occupied
down stairs aa a saloon and up stain wai
unoccupied, though furaished. Mr. Koehler
was insured for $500 on his personal pos
sessions in the house. The house was own
ned by Mrs. Lennahan and was not insured.
The house next belew which was also de
stroyed, was occupied as a butcher shop and
residence by Mr. A. Lumner, who saved
nearly all stock, fixtures and furnitures, and
holds insurance for what is lost. The house
was owned by Mr. Thomas O'Callahan, and
was insured for $500 in the Wells & Eerth
agency. Mr. Richard Welsh, who occupied
the building next below as a grocery store
and had a Ihtd stock, probably lost con
siderable by having his goods removed and
all heaped up promiscuously in the street.
One of the great eastern "Protection
ist" dailies says, "1883 bus not been re
garded as a eood year. From the outset
it has had a bid reputation. It has been
a yer of universal distrust and apprehen
sion. Business men in the United States
have ploddel or staggered along from
month to month, oppressed with the haunt
ing thought that a panic was impending.
Tbey have been over cautious and unduly
suspicious, and havo passed the year fight
ing shadows. Bradstreet reports
10,187 failures this year about one-tbird
more than in 1882, about 66 per cent, more
than in 1881 and 110 per cent, more than
in 1880. There is complaint of
dullness in the iron trade iu this country
and reduction of wages in that and the cot
ton and woolen branches of manufacture is
in some quarter proposed. The
shnnksge in volume of business here, other
than in stocks, will be close to 20 per cent,
for the whole year 1888, in comparison with
1882, of which a part is due to decide in
prices, but probably more than Mt to com
parative inactivity in trade." And the
Louisville Courier-Journal replies pointedly,
"thii reads more like the wild Republican
predictions of what would happen under a
Democratic Administration, than like the
actual record of a year under Republican
rtcbilns; Beat Sleau
