Officers Mahanny, Bough ner and Ho
gin arrested a white man named James
Dean Monday night, who is oue of the
hardest characters known to the force here.
About eight years ago Dean was arrested
by the Cairo force for robbing a lady on the
steamer James Fik while on her way
from Paducah here. He was tried and
sent from this county to Chester for tire
years. He served out his tuuo and was do
ing well for a while in St. Louis, but has
gone back to his old tricks. Magistrate
Comings fined him f 50 and costs for being
a vagrant and gave him a "otay" to leave
town in four hours, or before sun down yes
terday. The nomination of Capt. Juo. R.Thom
as, by the Congressional Convention at Car
bondale next month, is now a foregone
conclusion; and more still, it is almost
certain that he will be nominated un the
first ballot. So far Republican County
Conventions have been held iu Massac,
Williamson, Johnson and Union counties.
These four couuties will ba represented in
the Congressional Convention by 15, 19, 15
and 11 delegates respectively, or a total of
60 all of which have be cm instructed to
vote for Capt. Themas. And now comes
Randolph County which held her primaries
last Saturday, at which 134 delegates were
elected to the County Convention to be held
next Saturday. Of these 134 delegates for
the County Convention 90 are known to be
for Capt. Thomas, 35 for Geo. W. Smith
and 9 had not been postively heard from
here yesterday. Randolph County will
have 27 delegates in the Congressional
Convention all of whom will be instructed
for Capt. Thomas next Saturday ; and that
will give the Capt. 87 votes so far, or 2
votes more than will be necessary to uomi
nate him. Besides this Pope County is
counted upon as certainly for Capt. Thomas
and it will have 16 delegates. In view of
all this Hon. W. S. Rogers and Hon. Geo,
W. Smith may as well retire from the field.
The first regular meeting of the City
Council was held last night and it was one

Nkw Yor.K, April H. Tho Marine Xa
t!oiml l!uuk has just cKxed Its doors rea
son not yit ascertained.
The Clearing House Committee on
banks is now iu session Investigating the
suspension of the Marine Batik. On
April 14th the bank had a capital of $100,
000. Fish, the President owned the
Booth theater building and was largely
cugasod in other real estate matters.
At the Marine Bauk it is stated that
President FL-ti has not been down to-day.
Business is entirely suspended.
There Is a lanre crowd around the
d.'ors rndt-avoring to obtain some In
formation regarding the disaster. The
concern is ei.tirely closed, and the police
are in charge It is generally thought
that the President has lost a great
deal of money iu uptown real estate.
Nkw YoiiK, May 0. The direct cause
of the failure of the Marine Bank is now
attributed to overdrawing of the account
of tlraut, Ward .v Co., who it is said have
been persistent bulls on the market ever
since the commencement of the special of
Ni w Yoiik, May ('.Speaking of the
failure of the Marine Bauk, Fred House,
of Uraut & Ward, brokers, No. 3 Wall

said: "I cau not see how we can save
oursehes, I am now waiting.to see Fish,
and will doubtless publish a statement
notifying the Mock Exchange of our ina
bility to proceed as soon as the partners
can hold a conference.
Nnv YoKK, May C The Clearing
House Committee has resolved upon
nothing. Apprehensions are felt that
the closing of the Marine Bank meaus
the gravest coudition of affairs. Ite
cuperation is believed to be improbable.

have investigated and get the following

Tho failure of the Marine Bauk explains'
the collapse of the broker lirm. Tho lat

It is understood that the capital has

Leavknwuktm, Kas., May C It is
kuown that a strong but quiet effort
is being made to induce members of
the Kansas delegation to the Na

Senator Plumb, who heads the delega
tion aud was supposed to be for Blaine,
is reallv for Arthur, aud that before the
delegation was chosen he expressed the
wish that it might be chosen iu the In
terest of Arthur, but w hen he found it
could not be done, as Kansas Republi
cans are for Blaine, he advocated the
choosing oi an uniustructed delegation.
That was done amithe work of conver
sion has begun. Boasts are made by
prominent federal olliclals that the Kan
sas delegation will be for Arthur. The
Blaine men are In anything but a pleas
