Which are to be filled with dirt and placed

washing. Last year a considerable stretch
of the track at and near Wickliffe was torn
sway byths flood; this year the flood is
anticipated and will probably not succeed
in repeating Its work of destruction there.
The Kentucky and Missouri bottoms

Yesterday about thirty -five men, women
and children, with sll their household ef

household effects here yesterday to eecd
them to Memphis, where his family will re

Florida orange grove. His house here will
be occupied by Mr. Phil. C. Barclay and
family. His Florida property is destined
to be "a big thing." It is situated on Lake
Alfred and crossed by the Tampa and San
ford railroad. He has laid out a town near
his grove, maps of which, showing the rail
road, lake, grave and town, have been cir
culated freely here. He will go at once to
work to clear the town site of timber and
will establish a sawmill there for that pur
pose. At a meeting of citisens of Cobden
recently held and in reply to a request from
the fruit growers of Cobden end vicinity
made to tbs weather bureau for warnings
of the approach of cold waves, a communi
cation from the weather bureau was read in
substance as follows: "That the commun
ity could have the telegraph report of the
approach of any cold wave by paying the
cost of ths telegram. A email asaount was
raised at the meeting and given to a mem
ber with Instructions to correspond with
the weather bureau, and also to have a
suitable flag made to be raised upon the
approach of the cold wave, and to be re
moved after the clanger had passed."
The dirtiest thing done during the last
Presidential campaign, was the action of
the Republican campaign committee in
hiring an Ohio tramp named Kern an to
edit a dirty aheet in Oklahoma, Miss, and
causing it to be extensively circulated
throughout the north as a reflex to southern
sentiment. With ft opening of the new
campaign the same idiotic blackguard has
been started in business again, this time at
Leavenworth, Zas., and the first number of
his scrofulous sheet reeks with all the nasti-
nasi which characterized the Oklahoma
paper. Except as curiosities of all that is
filthy and scorbutic, neither Kernaa nor
his paper deserve netice. The exposure
was too thorough during the last campaign
for anything to be effected politically by
the same methods in this.
Before his death Prof. Tics predicted
the following weather for this month:
1st to 8d, threatening weather, with heavy
storms about 2d; 4th to 5th, fair and cold,
if severe storm has paased; 6th te tub,
gradually clouding, with heavy storms
about 8th; 10th and 11th, fair 12th to 10th,
clouding up again, with heavy storms; 18th
to 17th, fair or clear; 18th to 21st, threat
ening and cloudy, with falliag weather; 23d
to 24th, clear or lair; 20th to 29th, cloud
ing up, and very heavy storms about 28th
and 29th. The more moderate spells will
be about 2d, 8th, Utb, 19th, 20th and 29th.
The colder spells will be about tb, 10th,
10th and 22. Ths earthquakes will occur
about 2d, 7th, 18th, 19th, 20th and 29th.
Ribbed clouds, that is, like the ribs of a
skeleton, generally against a mora than or
dinarily blue sky, indicate heavy rain;
brown tinge, or bull's sys clouds, indicate
heavy storms and earthquakes.
Maj. George M. Barber, who has been
for some months employed in preparing
sketches of the principal towns
along ths Illinoie Central railroad,
for s volume entitled "From the Lakes to
the Gulf," to be published by railroad com
pany, was at The Halliday yesterdsy for the
purpose of confering with Mr. A. H. Han
son and others concerning the forthcoming
work. The book is nearly ready for dis
tribution. Major Barber had a few speci
men pages of the work, which indicated
what the whole would be like, and judging
from them we do not hesitate to say that
the book will be in every respect up to the
high standard anticipated by the press snd
public. Besides seven thousand copies
which will be distributed in the cities along
the road and its branches, fire thousand
copies will be sent to Englsnd to be
distributed among the club rooms and read
ing rooms and public houses there. The
books are so attractively gotten up that
they will be extensively perused and not
passed over as .ordinary railroad posters
and timetables usually are.
Thursday Receiver Woodward, of the
Texas & St. Louis railroad, filed a petition
whith the clerk of the U. S. Court at
Springfield, in which he. prays for assist
ance to enable him to properly manage and
extricate the road from its present embar
rassed condition. The receiver states that
although he has made all due diligence in
preparing an inventory, he has not yet com
pleted it, the road property being in such a
scattered condition that he will net be able
to file it for some days. When he took
possession of the property it was charged
with liens for taxes already due to the
States of Missouri and Arkansas, and to
the various counties, cities and towns in
the above states, and they still remain due
and unpaid. By the revenue laws of the
state ef Arkansas, the 10th inst. is the last
day within which said taxes can be paid
without paying in addition to said tsxes
severe penalties 25 per cent, of the face
value of the taxes assessed on real property
and 100 per cent, of the face value of
taxes usessed on persoual property being
sdded to the said bills. The income and
profits of the road, the receiver sets forth,
are net sufficient to pay the actual running
expenses. He avers that money sufficient
to psy off and discharge the taxes duo and
a lien on said property to the state of Ar
kansas is about $12,000, and the amount
necessary to pay the same in Missouri
about $4,000. This the petitioner prays
for. Judge Treat, in answer, ordered that
the receiver be permitted to issue deben
tures for a sum net exceeding $18,000 at a
rate of interest not exceeding 7 per cent.,
the proceeds thereof to be by him applied
to the payment of taxes due by said rail
road corporation the tax bills when so
paid to bo returned to the court, together
with other vouchers by him received in the
course of his administration.
Paducah carpenters are busy making
flats for citizens who can't swim. The
town is being rapidly depopulated. About
a dozen of its best families arrived here by
the Fowler yesterdsy and took rooms in
the Clark abomination and in "Pinch."
Those who remain are panic-stricken, and
fierce contests over the possession of half
finished flats before they leave the shop are
of almost hourly occurrence. Thursday
one of the palatial Ohio river steamers ly
ing there was boarded by a mob and
stripped of every life-preserver in the cabin
and on deck, and she had to lay over to
await the arrival of a new supply, which
were brought by the next boat down and
conveyed on board et midnight in mid
stream. Others are engaged in calking the
floors and sides of their houses so that they
will float. In their utter desperation the
authorities have contracted for a fleet of
ten barge loads of sponges, which are to be
dumped in a heap some distance above the
town, so that they may absorb and hold
back some of the flood before it reaches
Paducah. The Are engine and company
have also been ordered out to a point on
the river at the upper end of the city, and
the hose laid through the streets to the
lower end ; and by keeping the engine and
company constantly hard at work, pressing
in new hands when the old ones tire, it is
hoped to cause a very considerable quantity
ot water to pass the city witheut touching
it. The mayor has also, by proclamation,
ordered out all the boys with their syringes
nasal syringes to aid the fire depart
ment in their noble work of squirting the
flood harmlessly past the town, and the
very few boys who didn't have these very
useful and amusing instruments were fur
nished with them by special act of tbe city
council. With all these agencies and pre
cautions, and many others too numerous to
mention now, the few who remain in the
doomed little settlement vainly hope to es
cape complete annihilation by the rushing
torrent that is now almost upon them. It
would be useless to point out to tbs poor,
deluded people tbe utter futility of their
efforts, for they are all wild with fear and
mentally blind. But in spite st the con
summate foolishness of ths thing, our city
authoritiee might comply with the request
of Mayor Reed, and send ten or fifteen of
our fire engines up to help the syringe bri
gade, if only to manifest our inert nobility
of character which prevents us from bear
ing malice even against those who have
persistently traduced us.
"Duty and Pleasure"
Prompted Rev. R. F. White, of Greenville,
N. Y., to write that "in oight hours after
bis wife began to take Athlopboros for an
attack of inflammatory rheumatism, she
surprised all by walking from room to
room, comparatively free from pain." "The
Specific Cure," as Mr. White calls it, went
directly to diseased parts, reduced tbe in
flammation, assuaged the ptin. and worked
a rapid euro, as it invariably does.
Cigar Make Strike.
Philadelphia, Feb. 8. Sixty of tbe
ene hundred cigar makers employed by
J. H. Portundo are ea a strike. Tbe d ffl
eulty wm brought about by an attempt to
enforce a reduction of two dollars per
thousand on eertaia kinds of work. One
of tbe old bands who refused to accept tbe
reduction was dismissed and fifty-nine
others immediately put on their coats and
quietly walked out.
LA BOB, NOT CAPITAL.
Tbe Proper SubJet lor Protection by
Cleveland, O., Feb. 8. Senator Sher
man has written a letter to the Iron Trade
Review upon the movement originating
here and culmination la tbe organl xatlon in
New York of an assoolatlon of capitalists to
secure reolproclty with Canada in the mat-lei-
of a reduction of the duty on coal and on
Iron ore. He writes:
"The subjeot of a treaty of reciprocity
with Canada in respect to coal and Iron ore
I as not been brought to my attention, but
my first view is entirely against suoh a
treaty. We have plenty of coal and iron
ore In this county, now protected with a
comparatively low rate of duty, and I see
no reason to Jisturb tt. Indeed, the whole
protee Ire yteni Is now In more danger
from us friend than Ite enemies. The
manufacturing interests are beginning to re
gard coal and Iron ore, pig iron, wool and
other artloles ot domestlo produotlou as
raw articles not to be protected by duty.
If this new dootrlne should get a foothold
it would destroy the whole protection poli
cy of tbe Government. Tbe rule of protec
tion must extend to all labor alike; to tbe
labor of the farmer in producing wool and
to the labor of tbe miner la digging coal,
and if it is denied to tbe farmer and miner
It cannot Justly be maintained In favor of
tbe manufacturer. It is labor that is to be
p oteoted and not capital. It is Indeed
more important to develop tbe natural re
sources of the couutry In the protection of
m nlng and the manufacture of such artloles
as wool, Iron and coal, than to protect tbe
higher forms of production where cheap
labor is lndispeosibls."

A Boston Merchant Driven Prom Home
by Hia Wife.
Boston, Mass., Feb. 8. The quiet and
aristocratic suburb ot Jamaica is agitated
by a scandal of a peculiar character. The
wife ot Mr. Albert Day, a well-known
gentleman 74 years old, has turned him out
of doors. Mr. Day la at present a whole
sale and retail dealer In teas at No. 26 Cen
tral street, Boston. He at one time edited

bler, both la New Tork and Boston. His
wife, wbo Is over thirty years bis Junior,
was divorced a few years ago from H. W.
Howard of Vermont, and has a daughter
about 10 years old. It was through an
acquaintance with this daughter that tbe
old gentleman became
intimate with the woman,
and made ber Mrs. S)sy in October, 1881.
During tbe last two 'years Mrs. Day has
taken a number of boarders and tbe home
of the old gentleman bas bean made un
comfortable. Mrs. Day now complains
that be annoyed her boarders and she
finally got rid of him by putting blni out of
of the house and refusing him admittance.
The old gentleman bas made violent at
tempts to enter, and created great excite
ment by bis demonstrations. His wife has
appealed to the police, but tbey refuse to
interfere. Mrs. Day Is a very attractive
woman and one or two well-known gentle
men are said to champion her cause.
ELLEN YACKET'A FATE.

Independence, Mo., Feb. 8. Oi tbe
night of July 9 last, Ellen Yackey, the
beautiful U -year-old daughter of John J.
Yackey, a prominent farmer living 3 miles
south of Blue Springs, In tbis county, dis
appeared and has never been beard of

virtue by Oliver P. Underwood and J. L.
P. Erwin, both men of families, living in

tbe girl's disappearance than tliey
were willing to tell. On Saturday last a
grave In s lonely thicket near tbe Tackey
farm bouse was discovered by two hunters
and the rumor soon spread that Ellen Yack
ey had been murdered and her body con

Washixotos, Feb. 8. Mr. Gardner
Hubbard, before tbe Committee on Post
Offl.vs in advocacy of the establishment of
a system of Postal Telegraph, reviewed bis
( ffurta in behalf ot Postal Telegraph since
1873. 11 de ailed In an Interesting man
uer tbe progrets of electrical science dur
Ingthepi-t few days and explained its
bearing on the telegraph business gener
ally, llo quoted from tbs report of ths
Western Union for 1S78, showing reduc
tions in rates made while
tbe question of Postal Telegraph
has been a Mated. When the lines were
leaded, he said all Information respecting
rates ww withheld. Referring to the pur
chant of the Atlantic and Pacific, be said
tbe stock of that company was purchased
at IM) per share aul was without market
value. It was controlled by the Western
Union, and seller and buyer readily agreed
upon a prce to suit themselves. Tbey sim
ply consulted their own Interests. Did
they consult the Interests of
the public? He thought not.
Tbe cables were of but little vafue until
leased by the Western Union, and the
manager of the Western Union went to tbe
Cable manager, and asked whether tbey
were wllll nic to pool tbe cable busloess, or
whether they should lay completing lines.
The consequence was an agreement to pool
buolness. In this way tbe cable rates were
kept up at a high standard. Before tbe
combination was formed the rates were 6
pence per word. The policy of the V est
ern Union organization up to tbe present
time have been to absorb all com
peting lines, aad Issue watered stock
Several com petlng lines are now In ex
istence, bavin? lately been started, tbe
Baltimore A Olilo asserted that tbey could
not be bought out, but built lines before
and sold them out, and It was but natural
to suppos) they would do so again. Mr.
Hubbard quoted Garrett's statement res
pecting tti.i sale of the American Union to
l tie Western Union and , said
I he Haiti more St Ohio Company
bad built lines and made alliance with tbe
American Union, of which company Gar
rett became a director and although repre
UMitlnjr a nilnorltv sold out property valued
114.000,000 for atteen million.
Rife interrupted and said that In the
transaction mentioned It bad been admit
ted tbat one man held a majority of the
Resuming, Mr. Hubbard contended tbat
Ihe Western Union held a dangerous power
which was controlled by three or four men
who, sitting: In their office, could supervise
not only political bu commercial and every
description of news transmitted through
ut the country. Is there anything like the
power of Uils corporation in this country
r In any other? Through Its agency the
bold .Slock Company collect news
in Europe and forwards It to every point
n tbe United States and vice versa.
By misrepresenting tbe market price of
my stock to a fraction of a cent., fortunes
may be realized by those wbo know tbe
Tbe Western Union admits of no partner
iblp and allows no rival to exist. It man
agers eontrol.everjr quotation. "In saving
Ihls, " Hubbard added, "I do not make
barges apaiiiHt the company. Hut I think
it power too large to be entruUed to any
set of men.
Rife again interrupted and said that in
'.he transaction mentioned Garrett didn't
illow the transfer of the B. and O. to the
"Be that as it may," continued Hub
hard. "Tbe consolidation was effected."
Hubbard took the ground that the telegraph
business was bxind to be a
monopoly, whether transacted by private
corporations or by the government. He
thought tbat at the outtlde, the actual cost
of tbe luvestnjont by the Western Union,
was less than $500,000. Slnoe the absorption
of other lines the aggregate amount ex
bended had probably reached $5,000,000.
He thought tbe Government oould do tele
graphing naicu cheaper than It can be done
by corporations. When asked how ha
would protect Innocent purchasers of Wes
tern Union stock, In the event of a decision
to inaugurate the system of postal tele
graphy, be answered that he did not know
bf a way for their protection. He did not
think there ware any innooent purchasers.
If there were tbey would bave to suffer
alike with those not Innocent. As the
question bai been more or less agitated for
15 years be thought the stockholder were
fully acquainted with the facts of the case,
Chairman Hill said be did not think tbe
question of Innooent stockholder would
even be raised. He understood tbat there
were but about two hundred stockholders.
He referred of tbe olose contracts be
tween the Western TJalon and the asso
ciated press, and Instanced several eases of
newspapers whlob criticized tbe reports
furnished by the associated press and
others, In which articles In support of
