The Southern Manufacturer says that
some interesting and extraorioary datt have
just been compiled respecting the Missis
sippi. It appears that it boasts tribunry
streams with a total length of navigation of
16,571 miles, or about two thirds of tho
distaace around the world. Even thin, how
ever, represents but a small amount of the
navigation which will follow wheu the fed
eral government has made the contemplated
improvement in tho upper Mississippi, in
the Minnesota, Wisconsin and other rivers',
in which it is now engaged. But while tho
Mississippi has 10.5 1 miles navigable to
steamboits, it has 20,221 miles navigable
to barges. This nnviittion is divided be
tween twenty-two States and Territories.
The Chicago News of recent date Buys
"Already there is a movement to put Mr.
Olierly in the field, who has far more pur
ty strength in the State at large than has
Mr. Harrison." A few days before that a
special from Peoria read as follows: "The
Republican State ticket is generally con
ceded to be a very strong one, so much bo
as to derange the plans ot the Democracy
the candidacy of Carter Harrison for gov
ernor and it is probable that John II.
Oherly will be called to lead tho Democrat
ic hosts in the campaign." It is evident
that, whether he will or not, Mr. Oberlv
will be brought forward to compete for
some of the high honors al the disposal of
Commenting upon tho action of the
colored voters here, in 'disapproving of the
State Convention's neglect of Southern Illi
nois generally and the colored element par
ticularly, the Bloomington Bulletin says
truly, "This move on the part of the colored
people was to be looked for. Tho negro is
never so happy as when ho is attending a
meeting and adopting resolutions. If the
Republicans had given the colored mem
bers representation, put one on the State
ticket and one or two as delegates to the
National Convention, the result would
havobeen the same they would hve cull

ing the white men of the pirty for their

It is a notable fact that not one of the
houses so far projected in this city rre be
ing built on what is commonly understood
as "low grade." Even those to be put up
in portious of the "high giado"
would not reach for years after it had been
inaugurated and where the present legal
grade is above the high sipewater line,
will have "an upward tendency" will be
put up three feet or more above the Com
mercial avenue grade. 1Tis well. At heart
our people are for "high grade" and soon
er or latter they will be prepared for its in
auguration. Those who favor it can afford
to wait a little longer, until "the times"
shall convince the short sighted opponents
of the project of the necessity of "doing
something." In the meantime we will
have a little "high grade" building boom

Hon. D. T. Liuenar returned Sunday
from Washington. He had been gone
several months, during which he did good
work for this section of country, among
the solotis at tho federal capital. The bill
appropriating $50,000 to be expended in
continuing the Government work begun
here some years ago, will, Mr. Linegar
says, in all probability pass and become a
law. The fact that the committee having
charge of this and kindred measures is
favorable to it, is looked upon by Mr. L. as
a very strong point in its favor, and as the
bill itself is so evidently just there is little
or no doubt that it will go through with
very little opposition. The judiciary bill,
which would divide Illinois into three judi
cial districts, is believed to bo less liable
to pass this Congress not because ot any
demerits in the bill or any proper objec
tions to the plan, but because of political
influence which can be understood and
duly appreciated only by one who is on the
ground and has taken the trouble to post
himself concerning tho matter. The pro
ject is not abandoned, however, and will be
accomplished before long.
In response to a call from several
member?, the city council met last night in
snecial session. There were present, the
Mayor and Aldermen Mcllule, Lancaster,
Patier. Stout, Wood and Woodward. Al
derman Patier presented a petition of four
teen saloon-keepers, praying that the ordi
nauco fixing the saloon license at five bun
drcd dollars per annum be so amended as
to permit the issue of licenses for six
months, or Bemi-annually. To consider this
section was tho sole object of mooting.
After seme discussion a vote was taken
upon a motion instructing the Ordinance
Committee to draft an ordinanco in accord-
rnce with the petition, and it resulted in
the defeat of the motion. Probably the
principal reason of the defeat was that no
Buch ordinance as wis asked for could bo
legally passed within tho time that it was
necessary to do bo in order to givo the re
lief asked. Tho ordinance sought to bo
amended g cs into eff. ct May 1st or next
Friday. It is what is called a penal ordi
nance, or one prescribing a penalty for its
violation, arid all such ordinances, or
amendments thereof, cannot go into effect
ujil ten days after they shall have been
pised, signed and published as required
!law. The council did nothing further

ber, while the Republican managers used

bolls on election day. The Democrats have
lakeii only a sort of passive interest in the
jurty machine. Mass meetings did tho

iim-s meetings were usually attended by a
few bundled voters from the immediate
I'icinity of the place where they were
held, while tho voters in the county pre
cincts were probably not even aware that
the Demi crats of the county were takiug
my part in the campaign. But this time
liere's to bo a change. There is to be a
general awakening of the party from the
precincts up; theie is to be thorough local
!rgiiization so that every voter in every
precinct will be given an opportunity at
least to know that the Democrats are still
n deck and to take an active part in the
fiht. Such a campaign will not be with
out its good effects; it will bring the Dem
ocratic party out on eloctiou day, and that
is all that will be needed to insure its suc
cess. The Current of the 20th saye: "The
Ohio River flood did its destructive work
and passed away. The Lower Mississippi
River has been for two or three weeks
showing the effects of the swell in the
upper tributaries. Below the town of
Helena, Ark., on the west bank of the great
river, there is always destruction iaan cx
traordinory rise of the water. The planta
tion are generally under water from the
mouth of tho Red River down. There is
great danger that during some period of
high water in this region, the Mississippi
River and tho Red River may force their
way through the bayous west of the river
and flow into the Gulf of Mexico, eighty
or one huudred miles west of New Orleans,
leaving that commercial city on the bank
of a stagnant inland lake. That would be
a practical test of the outlet system, and it
would ruin New Orleans. The effect of
cutting outlets above New Orleans to the
Gulf would be the diversion of the Missis
sippi from its channel. Below the outlet
the channel would bo chocked up with
mud and sand, and there would ultimately
result a serious of lagoons. That something
should be dono to prevent the river from
destructively overflowing its bank, 'ib a
opposition, not arguable. The responsibili
ty of the Government, which exercises iu
zerain perorgatives in other ways over the
river, is perfectly demonstrable as to the
work of preventing overflow, and the only
question should be as to tho most effective
and economical method of accomplishing
that work. It is not a case of paternalism,
for since the purchase of Louisiana, the
Government has had the responsibility of
river proprietorship resting upon it. The
river should be kept within its banks
either levees or jetties in the bends or by a
combination of the two methods."
The Cairo & St. Imis (n. g.) R. R. con
tracted with Tub Bulletin for about one
hundred dollars worth of advertising for
the year 18S4, in the Weekly Bulletin, to
be paid for in twenty-four trips for one
man over the road or any part of it, during
1884. In making this contract Col. Ham
ilton evidently supposed he was buying
The Bulletin's good will or silence, but
that was a mistake. The road has had the
benefit of one quarter of the year's advertising.-
The Bulletin has had a ride to
Hodges Park and back. Col. Hamilton
did not like the manner in which The
Bulletin criticized the petty meanness of
the road in the matter between them and
the Cairo Odd Fellows. He revokes the
contract and orders the pass returned. The
road is twenty-five dollars ahead of The
Bulletin in the transaction and we are
glad of it. We would be sorry to know
that The Bulletin had beaten the poor
little road in any way. The pass was re
turned with p'ousure and the statement that
having such an arrangement would never
prevent us censuring the management of
the road where we believe it deserved it
nor would tho cancelling of the contract
prevent us givinet the road due credit in
the columns of The Bulletin should it
ever do anything that would entitle it to
praise from a citizen of Cairo. No railroad
running into Ciiro can buy The Bulle
tin with an annual puss nor anything else.
