A new stage on wharfboat No. 2 is in
course f construction. There is probably
more heavy hauling over the stages on the
wharfbop.ts here than over those at any
other point on the river twice as large as
Cairo, hence the necessity of frequjnt re
newals. A bill Iihs passed the lower house of
Congress to tha effect that until 18SG trade
dollars shall be received at their face value
for all Government dues, but are not to be
issued by the Government, and after the
expiration of that time they are to be recoin-
el into standard silver dollars.
Mr. Thompson Birl is preparing to
again nave his house moveJ oacK some
distance from the river bank at Bird's
Point. The house has a good brick foun
dation, but stands within a few feet of the
river bank which will be cut away rapidly
as soon as the river 6hall have gone down a
few feet more. Another year or two Mr.
Bird's fine orchard will suffer unless the
cutting is stopped in some way.
II. M. Sexton, a young stranger with
more money than btains, was up before
Magistrate Comings for being drunk. After
paying his fine he displayed a wad of money
containing probably $150 and in a maud
lin way boasted that he was no tramp,
etc. The court gave him some good advice
which he promised to tnke; but, though
sober, he talked like a fool and probably
wis one, by nature. Such fellows general
ly fall easy victims to designing loafers.
The down town sewers were opened
yesterday, but there was net much of an
exodus through them because the water
outside was so nearly level with that in
the bottoms inside. The little check in
the rate ot fall here was due to tha St.
LoU;sr'.se of several days before which just
reached here. But the river is falling at

Now that tha Bipewater is eoing away
there ought to be preparation for a grand
boom in the business of whitewashing on
the premises in the lower portions of the
city. The fences and outhouses that were
surrounded by water and bear tho marks
thereof should all receive a thick coating
of lime, not only as a decoration but as a
sanitary measure. Lime is cheap, so are
brushes, and anybody can mix and handle
them. There is no reason, therefore, for
dirty board fences or burns or foundation

that the Bishop would confer tho sacra

Reports from the Agricultural Depart
ment of Illinois, at Springfield, state over
one half of the winter wheat area of the
State is in the southern countries, some of
which grow but little grain other than
wheat The crop in this portion of the
State has suffered more during the past
winter than elsewhere, and while better
than at corresponding date in 1S83, dots
not promise much ver twe thirdsof an
average yield per acre. The total acreage
from the figures secured is large, and the
avei age condition is 63, as compared with
with CI in 18S3 and 103 in 1982. In the
largest wheat growing counties in this por
tion of the State the condition of winter
wheat the first of the month was as follows:
St. Clair, 00 per cent; Madison, 87 per
cent; Washington, 82 per cent; Monroe,
100 per ceDt. Frwm the reports it is alo
learned that the area of tbj growing crop
of winter wheat in the state is 7 per cent
less than the crop harvested in 1883. The
present area of winter wheat of 2,752,750
acres is 174,632 acres less than that of the
preceding year. It will be seen in the
showing made that the condition of whet
promises a better yield in all portions of the
State than at the corresponding date of
133, though the crop has suffered to a
considerable extent by the severe winter
weather, and is not as promising as on the
1st of December, 1883, at which time the
prospects were favorable for 90 per cent of
an average yield per acre.
THE DEMOCRATIC CAMPAIGN.
There is every reason to believe that
there will be a general waking up in the
Democratic ranks of this state before long
now. Under the directorship of Hon. J.
H. Oberly as chairman of the State Cen ral
Committee, there is to be an end of the
slip shod way of running the party there
is to be close orgmization, new metlnds,
recognized leaders, a unity of opinion upon
important questions of the day and other
elements of strength essential to a par'y
that is to cope with so well organized and
well trained and well managed a party as
the Republican party is. Mr. Oberly has
evidently given much thought to the prob
lem of hew to bring order out of the chaos
that has characterized the Democratic party
of the state for so long and that has brought
the party to defeat when it might have
been successful. One of the means of
unity, and therefore of strength, suggested
by Mr. Oberly, is that the g'ate Convention
select some popular, wide-awake Democrat
as the party's candidate for Senator, who
would take an active part in the senatorial
elections in each precinct. In an interview
with a Chicago Times reporter Mr. Oberly
makes his strong point in this connection:
"We have ne one who, by his position in
the party or by his activity in former cam
paigns, has made himselt the leader of the
party in the senatorial fight, as Logan and
Cullom have done in the Republican party.
Now, when the senatorial district nomina
tions are made by the Republicans, Mr.
Logan or some of his agents will be on
hand to see that Logan men are put up.
Then he will look after them carefully,
and any assistance they need will be ren
dered. In other words, the legislative fight
will be made a state fight; will be dealt
with as a whole, and not abandoned to the
happy-go-lucky method which has charac
terized the Democratic policy. What we
want is a man not only capable of being
United States Senator when he gets there,
but one who will contribute his endeavors
in syatematizing the fight for the general
assembly so that it will be possible to put
To the question, "what are the chance of
the next general assembly being Democrat
ic," Mr. Oberly Baid "better than were the
last. We will have twelve hold-over Sena
tors against eiuht two years ago. We will
elect in nine Democratic districts and cer
tainly carry Needles' and Tanner's districts
which will make twenty-three, with an ex
cellent prospect of electing a Senator in ths
Thirty-second and Sixth. These would
bring us within one of carrying the Senate
In regard to the Ilouse, we have had the
votes in the districts, tor the last six years
to give us a safe majority, but there has
been so much plumping that we have been
beaten, or rather, have beaten ourselves by
Mr. Oberly then stated that the Demo
cratic headquarters in Chicago will be open
about the time of the National Convention,
and active work ut once begun. In the
meantime Mr. Oberly and Mr. Mize will
take a trip through the state, stopping in
each congressional district and holding
consultations with the county committee
men and prominent Democrats of the dis
trict. The first district consultation will
bo held in the Twentieth district, probably
at Cairo, Bomu time not later than the mid
die of May, and tli other districts soon
after. The plan of organization which the
committee proposes to carry out is the crca
tion of ''Jefferson clubs'' in all the counties
of the state. These clubs will have a uni
form constitution, and hold certaiu speci
Cod relations with the State Central Com
mitten, and aro expected to be the agency
through which that committee may be
enabled to direct the campaign throughout
the state. The constitution, which has not
yet been made public, first explains briefly
THE OHJECT OP THE CLUB.
The members are required to assent to
certain general principles concerning the
State and Federal Governments, and the
document touches upon the somewhat deli
cate matter of tha tariff by declaring that
these Governments should grant no special
favor to any citizen or class of citizens;
they "should do no legislative or executive
act which would favor the growth ot monop
olies." The document then proceeds to
state the officers the club shall elect, thuir
duties, etc. Meetings of the clubs will be
held on the last StturJay of every month,
and will be private, but no Hecict. After
transacting routine business the clubs will
remain in session for the informal discus
sion of the interests of the Democratic
party. Not less than two public meetings
of the club every year are required, one on
Jefferson's birthday, AprU 13, and one on
the anniversary of the adoption of the fed
eral constitutions, September 17. These
meetings will partake of the nature of a
banquet, with appropriate addresse--, etc.
The initiation fee is fixed at not less than
25 ceut, with monthly dues. To the Dem
ocratic State Central Committee is rtbetvtd
the right to amend or alter the constitution
by an orJer uniform in its operations on
all Jefferson clubs.

John B. Doris' New Monster Shows, a
superb combination of all that is novel,
attractive and diverting, will appear her
on Tuesday, April 15tb. That the manage
ment presents an entertainment that meets
with popular approval, is attested by the
brilliant success of triumphs that It has
achieved elsewhere. A White-Spotted Sac
red Elephant, the only one of the kind
in the conCtry, has been added to the
menagerie. In the circus proper, Mr. John
B. Doris has attained the acme of perfec
tion, the ensemble of artists being a verita
ble centralization of all the cardinal lights
of the arenic world. Not the least commen
dable feature is the fact that the entire cir
cus performance is given in three rings and
a stage and a more brilliant sight was
never seen here. In constantly adding to
the attractiveness of his tntertainment,
Mr. Doris is acuated by the sentiment that
to contribute intelligently to the pleasure
of the public, is the summit of all human
endeavor. The street parade will take
place at 10 o'clock, sharp, in the morning.

At the Hungarian concert last evening
Ierr Franz Garaj, the leader of the band,
performed a violin solo that was remark-
ble for brillancy and difficulty of execu
tion. He was loully applauded at the
conclusion, and, in response to the repeated
plaudits ot the audience, played for an en
core "The Old Folks at Home," with full
band accompaniment, and followed with

riment among the listeners. It was, in
