where it wu lis inches higher than the

The Presbyterian ladies' dinner and
upper at temperance hall yesterday were
well patronised by the public and much
enjoyed by those who partook of them.
The ladies had exerted themselves to
provide a splendid feast, and they had done
themselves credit in this respect.
Yesterday afternoon the post office
and custom house yard bad very much
the appearance of .'our public schools at
recess. The post office corridor was throng
ed with a motly crowd of little folks, all
eagre and crowding to get to the "Valen
tine" delivery window, an 1 such a bable of
noises waa probably never heard since the
confusion of tongues at the famous tower.
But all were happy and but few were dis
appointed. Several days ago a German employed
by Mr. Louis C. Herbert secretly packed
up his . personal effects, including a gun
which he had left with Mr. H. as security
for $3$ which the latter had advanced to
him, and skipped out, taking alao a pair of
rubber boots belonging to Mr. H. Chief
Myers set to work to trace up the fugitive
and found him at New Burnside and
brought him back. Yesterday the culprit's
case was inquired into by the grand jury,
but no indictment was found.
Nero fiddled while Rome waa burning ;
but the Paducah News, now issued from a
log- raft that is tossod about upon the turb
ulent Ohio, with; water 'over the entire
town, in all the houses, and almost up to
the necks of people who are forced to live
in them; with the horrifying evidences of
starvation, disease and death all around it
this organ of the wicked has the devilish
hardihood to indulge in silly humor about
the flood as follow: "The mighty Ohio
has again engulfed everything about us and
we protest that it is getting full too often.
To guard against a recurrence of this
calamity we invoke the aid of the W. 0. T.
U., to induce the old 'toper to swear off."
"7-20-8" was produced at the Opera
House last night by Augustine Daly's com
pany. A fair audience attended the play,
but more delighted one had never gathered
there before. The play was a funny one,
portraying scenes from domestic life with
much more truth than poetry to the certain
knowledge of many here, no doubt. The
audience was convulsed with laughter and
absorbed in interest all the time. The
play was exceedingly well produced, the
company being one of more than ordinary
talent throughout. We commend Augus
tine Daly's company in "7 20-8" to amuse
ment loving people everywhere and feel
aafe in guaranteeing an exemplary enter
tainment. It is a pity that the continental cus
tom of the wearing of betrothal and wed
ding rings by men is not usual elsewhere.
A girl can tell whether it is a single, en
gaged, or married men whe is paying her
attentions, and a mother can never be
thoroughly sure whom she is enconraging.
In Norway, as toon as a young man and
woman are engaged, they not only ex
change rings, which they wear for ever
afterward, but the man has calling cards
printed with the name ot his finacee im
mediately below bis own. There is really
no reason why, the fashion should not
spread. It is a very admirable one, and if
adopted, would not only make engagements
almost as sacred as marriages, but would
prevent many disagreeable fiascos and ex
posures. A young German named John Streg
arrived in the city several days ago and
picked up with a stranger believed to be a
tramp, who had been in the city for several
days. Both put up at the Sherman house
Wednesday night in the same room. To
ward morning the German awoke and miss
ed his parter and eighty or ninety dollars
in money, which he had divided in two
pocket-books and sewed up in a rag strung
around his neck under four shirts. He
arose at once and gave the alarm to the
night police who made diligent search, but
without avail. The day force took up trail
yesterday, but up to last night no further
evidence bad been discovered. Chief My
ers thinks he knows who the thief was and
has taken steps to intercept him if he lett
on any of the railroads.
In the circuit court yesterday the Brad
ley perjury case occupied nearly all day.
Toward evening after Mr. Lincgar had fin
ished the opening argument for the de
fense, State's Attorney Leek ssked permis
sion to introduce further testimony to prove
a certain point. Judge Robinsoa was in
troduced, but failing to elicit from him the
testimony wanted, the state's attorney ask
ed leave to introduce ether witnesses and
the court thereupon continued the case un
til to-day, in order to give him an opportu
nity to do so. Ia the meantime, thj case
of John M. Clifford charged with removing
from the county personal goods
upon which he bad given
a chattel mortgage, and dispos
ing of them wu taken up and wu still on
trial when court adjourned last evening.
The Clifford cue will be first taken up this
morning and disposed of before the Bradley
case will be concluded.
A number of leading Republicans from
various parts of this congressional district,
among them Commissioner Roberts, of the
Chester penitentiary, were at The Halliday i
Wednesday, enroute home from Washing
ton, whsre.they had been royalty received
by Mrs. Logan. They are of the opinion
that the action of the state Republican
central committee in selecting Peoria as
the place and designating the 14th of
April u tbe.date for holding the Republi
can atate convention was very unwise.
They believe that Peoria is too far north
for this' portion of the state and that there
fore the convention will not be fully attcad
ed from here as it would be at Sprifleld.
The date ia too early because the present
flood, which will probably not subsidi for a
month, will prevent communication tmong
the people with reference to the natters
that will come before the state convention
aod will very seriously interfere with lad
ing county conventions to select delects,
etc. But there is probably no way vi of
the difficulty now unless the central com
mittee meet again and recall Its action,
which it will probably not do.
FLOOD-WRECKED, AND DISUSE-
ANOTHER DELEGATION OF THE WR ITCHED
VICTIMS OP PESTILENCE AND WATER AT
THAT STRICKEN TOWN SEEK BCCCflR AND
BErCRITI WITHIN OUR IMFREOtABLB
The steamer Fowler yesterday altcnoon
brought down another delegation frm the
devaatated city of Paducah. This i the
fourth lot ef poor sufferers shs has brtught
down here and what little spare room Cairo
had is about filled, so that but few more
can be accommodated. The Fowlet gen
erously charges nothing for bringing the
poor people and what little personal eifrcts
they managed to rescue from the rapacious
maw ef the flood, here and she therefore
richly deserves the vote of thinks tendered
yesterday at a meeting of prominent Pa
dueahans held at The Halliday
She has always been a popular little :raft
with the people of Cairo, tiut she will find
that her kindness toward the suffering deni
zens of our whilom sister city.
The delegation yesterday afternoon con
sisted of over forty families, who bad been
taken from trees and house tops, with what
little plunder they could carry almg.
Among them were Mr. Geo. Jenkins, wife
and two children; Mr. Wm, Stewart, wife,
mother and two children; Mr. Horace Sib
bard and mother and two sisters; Mrs.
Parvin and two daughters; Mrs. Bam.
Crenshaw, wife, six children and tmree;
Mr. J. H. Wicks.aud family; Mr. Timothy
Murphy and family; Mr. Spearing, Bother,
sister and three children; Mr. Geo. 0 block
and family. Mr. McCullam, wife, four
children and two servants; Mr. Hack Boyd,
wife, mother, three children acd Mrs.
Fourdie, Mr. John Runnels and two sons
and three daughters; Mr. John Stine, wife,
and Miss Angle Stine; Mr. Jarbos and
family; Mr. John Mahin, wife and daught
ers; Mr. Wallace and family; Mr Andy
Morrison and wife; Mr. Pmsser; Mr. Mc
Connelly and family; Mr. Billingsliy and
two ladies; Mr. Whitney, wife and two
children; Mr. Isaac Dickinson and family;
Mr. Joseph Morris and family; Mr. Fayette
Young, wife, three children and .servant;
Mr. Geo. Simonde, wife and five children;
Mrs. Olds, Mrs. Merkins, and Miss Mar
king, Mrs. Scott Plaisted, Mrs. Jamas
Quite a number arrived by the train,
whoae names the reporter was unable to
ascertain. They were all made as comfor
table as possible, though the crowded con
dition of the city made it impossible to
furnish them with the accommodations our
people could wish.
They all, without exception, tell the
same gloomy and doleful story of danger
and consternation from the flood. But many
of them would have managed to remain
there upon log rafts, in trees and in tents
pitched on the roofs of the few houses
that remain, but for the fact that disease
has broken out ia a very malignant form.
All through last summer and
winter the town had been afflicted with
small-pox and fevers of various diaerep
tions. The victims ef these terrible mes
sengers of death numbered three or four
per day for a while, and they were all hasti
ly interred in a few feet of ground just
above the town. The flood has washed up
the ghastly remains by the score and tbey
are floating slowly through the town and
are being arrested by fences, trees and
floating into Iho windows and doors of the
remaining houses. Wednesday night a
family sought refuge in a rudely construct
ed flat, from the roof of a houss that
threatened to be torn from its moorings by
the strong current. They were paddling
slowly and laboriously along toward a tree
near by when suddenly the wife and moth
er gave a fearful scream
and fell (Tor the side of
the flat which turned over, and the whole
family but one were swallowed up by the
waves and swept down the rapid stream
The survivor, a lad of twelve who could
swim, and who came down on the Fowler
yesterday, states that bis mother fainted at
sight of acorps with grinning scull bobbing
up under the bow of the flat right under
her eyes. This is but a sample ef
the horrifying incidents that occur daily
within the bounds of what once wu Padu
cah, and the fact that any people remained
there after the first great shock is only
proof of the strong attachment tfcere is in
the human heart for homes and scenes to
which we have become accustomed.
The poor people who arrived yesterday
are quartered in comparative comfort, but'
not as comfortably as could be wished be
cause of the overcrowded condition of the
ciy. A subscription has been started, how
ever, headed by Mr. II. B. Goodwin with
$1,000, for the construction of temporary
quarters in the commons opposite the pot
office for the better accommodation ef the
"Paducah colonists," at the poor victims are
pleasantly termed, and we will probably
have things in better shape for the next
party that eomus aleng.

JUDGE R. M. TAYLOBMTEB VIEWER
What He Has to Bar About the Missis
St. Louis, Feb. 14. -Judge R. S. Tay
lor, of Fort Wayne, mem be. of the Board
of Mississippi River Commissioners, Is at
the Southern, and Is as full as the old r Iver
Itself of enthusiasm, with regard to the
work of the commlailon. Questioned by a
reporter with regard to the business before
the meeting of the board now In progress,
"As you know, the primary object ot
the meeting Is the allotment of the appro
priation ot Jl, 000,000 made by Con
gress. This money will be for the most
part divided between the works at Plum
1'olnt and Lake Providence. It Is possi
ble that a few thousand dollars may be
applied to the work ot cloning gaps and
levees alrr-ady In progress on the Tensas
front. The amount expended in that way,
however, will be only so much as may be
necessary to save the work already begun.
Among the gaps now In piocessof cloture
ure are two, on the west side of the river
between Vicksburg and the Red river.
They are known as the Kemp's and Hard
Scrabble gaps. The work on them has
been dolayed by the failure of the contract
ors and in one or both cases the work bat
been taken away from the contractors by
Major Stickney, tbe United States engineer
"Will the district engineers have any
thing of Importance to report to tbe meet
ing?" "Capt. Marshall, the engineer In charge
of tbe Lake Provldenoe work, was present
at the meeting, and submitted bis plans for
tbe continuation of work ou that reaob.
Capt. Knight, of the Pumb Point work, Is
THE PLANS SUBMITTED
by Capt. Marshall contemplate no change
in methods heretofore employed. He pro
poses to strengthen the works already con
structed at the bead of Bale Shed bar and
to strengthen some portion of tbe bank
protection with additional stone. Aside
from this the work on bis reaob will be a
continuation of the work already adopted.
The work at Lake Provtdenoe Is of a very
difficult kind, on account of the volume of
tbe water, the rapidity of tbe current aod
tbe great softness of the basks. Ia respect
to tbe unstable opposition of the banks,
which Is everywhere tbe most difficult
feature of the business, .here Is no worse
place In tbe river. If the works proposed
will stand there tbey will stand' anywhere
on tbe river. "
"Is there possible any change of the
methods of Improvementf"
"The two general metheds That of con
traction, of forming a channel by permea
ble dykes which stay the velocity of tbe
current and compel a deposit ot sediment
below them, and tbe method of bank pro
tection by mattresses of wood and stone
will, lu tbe opinion ot engineers, remain
tbe general methods to be followed. Tbe
Improvements continually suggested are
Improvements In tbe way of oarrylng
these methods into effect Improve
ments In tbe manner of work. The
methods now tn use were applied for tbe
purpose of bank p rote ot ion at Cairo and
Memphis a half dozen years ago. Sub
stantially similar methods were employed
for "deepening tbe channel for tbe first
time by Major Ernst on Horsetail bar, be
low St. Louis, a few years since. Ills
work bad been In progress but a short time
when the work of tbe commission was be
gun. It began practically at Lake Provi
dence and Plum Point In 1682. Tbe meth
ods and results have been praotleally the
same since the introduction at Cairo and
"How was Capt. Marshall's report re
garded by the Commission t"
"As very valuable. It was based upon
bis two years' experience at Lake Provi
dence and dwelt upon new devices and
difficulties to be overcome. Capt. Mar
shall has exhibited
and energy and It la greatly regretted that
there is danger he will be obliged to give
up bis work tn consequence of tbe III health
brought about by the exposures Incident to
It. At the last meeting of tbe commission
a resolution was adopted requesting tbe
Secretary of War to allow bim to establish
bis headquarters at any point be might
select and conjinue bis supervision of Lake
Frovidenoe work from that point. I tblnk
the request would be granted, but I doubt
if Marshall would continue bis work unless
be could be present at tbe scene of It."
"What do you tblnk of the Washington
"I tblnk the result will be good. My
Impression Is that the convention was well
planned and wisely conducted, and that tt
canno t fall to exert a very beneficial in
fluence In turning tbe attention of Congress
and the whole country to tbe necessity of
tbe Mississippi river improvement. I tblnk
that the memorial adopted was a model
A Comle Vftleutlne.
Washington, Feb. 14. Col. Sam Hays
bai arrived. Tbe contest for the St. Louis
postmastershlp grows hotter every day.
The President remarked to a friend that be
could not get oyer his personal preference
for Col. Hays, and latlmated that In tbe
contest between him and Mr. Wells the
cbanoes are In favor of Hays. It Is believed
here that the presence of Mr. Hays will do
much toward deciding the long delayed
contest In his favor, and that bis appoint
ment will be made In a very few days.
This opinion Is strengthened by the fact
that many of the Missouri delegates to the
Mlssippl River Ceaveawon Improved the
opportunity to call en the President and
say a good word tor aiaa.

The Man on Ibe Tariff.
New York, Feb. 14. The Mail and Ex
press publishes a ong Inteivlew by Its
special correspondent at Washington with
Senator John Sbenuan, In regard to the
present agitation of ibe tariff In tbe House,
and bis Impression as to the oomlng action
of Concres In tba matter. Id answer to
questions by the reporter Mr. Sherman
said: "I cannot sny what Congress will
do about the tariff, nor do I believe Iba re
suit can be more than guessed at. In tariff
discussions It Is the unexpected that always
happens. But I cau tell you just what I
think Congress ought to do. That is, to
let tbe Buiect severely alone during the
present Congress, as it is In no condition to
pass a harmonious tariff law. Not only
are tbe two Houses not In harmony, but
differences of opinion exist anionic the
members of tbe same party In tbe same
House. I think the passage of a new tariff
law can only be propsrly done, when one
party has tbe power and responsibility.
The pre.cnt Congress could only make a
distorted bill. Tbe responsibility would be
divided between a Democratic House and a
Republican Seoaui and exeoutive.
If tbe new tariff should become a law,
the people wouldn't know wbom to bold
accountable." Mr. Suerraao further said
be did not think an Indixtry which oould
not be reasonably expc ted ti be self-sustaining
should be protected. Tba consum
er should get the full benefit of protection

A MTSTEIUOUS TRUNK.
The Suspicion! and Mystifying tlrpnin
taneea That Nnrronnd Ita
Sandwich, Mass., Feb. 14. Last week a
suspicious-looking Individual came to this
place and went to an isolated spot koowu
as Scorutou Uuacb, a desolate waste about
CLARK & LOVBTT,
two miles distant. An hour laUr he re
turned with a trunk besmeared with clay.
No one had ever seen tbe man before and
bis actions aroused su'plclou. He placed
placed the trunk upon a dray, drove to the
station and bad It checked to Brockton.
On bis return tbe man wjs spoken to by a
well-known eltlzsn, but offered no reply.
Tbls affair was shrouded In so muob mys
tery tbat an Investigation was made. Two
residents searobed tbe beach and claimed
that tbey had discovered the spot where the
trunk was buried. Near by was an unin
habited cabin, with lu entrance cleverly
concealed by means of bushes siuck around
LED TO THE TRAP IX)OH
which opened Into the but. Nothing was
found. A peculiar circumstance connected
wltb the case Is the fact tbat about a year
ago a strange man, about 43 years of age,
arrived In Barnstable on the Boston train,
accompanied by two ladies. One of the
ladles was quite aged, very tall, and
dressed In deep mourning, while theseoond
wu not over 20 years of age and very good
looking. Upon their arrival tbf y remained
at the station for two hours or more, when
then made an Inspection of the town. By
their mysterious movements they attracted
tbe attention of several of tbe citizens ef
the place. They bad no conversation
whatever with any eae, and suddenly die
appea ed. Nothing more was ever seen ot
them. It la tbe general opinion tbat some
Brockton resident Is Interested In the mys
terious affair. Two deteod ves have been
In Sandwleo tbe past few days, and It Is the
Impression that tbelr mission was In con
