about the matter; hut that the Capt. had

that tho iMimniission had no juririiliutiou

that Capt. Thomas had rendered much and
valuable aid to get the bill reported favora

Now let Cairoitos contain their souls
in peace aiid remain at home. All the wild
stories of prosperity in western towns, io
tailed here hy men who took a run through
the country taking rapid (flimpsos of what
conlnmtod and surrounded them, with in
experienced eyes, :tll these stories about
crowded directs. riiHliimi business, cities
built in it d.iy, sudden transitions from
poverty to oppuleneo are flatly contradic
ted, so fur iw Kins'is City is concerned, at
lohst, hy Hie following item from a late
number of Tho Times of that city! There
is a str'nitjo, restless feeling in Kansas City
journalistic circles. Two days have elapsed
ince somebody, who "used to ho employed
on the Chicago Times," and "worked for
Dana on the Bun,", has dropped In to bor
row CO cenls. Wo have been to Paducah
and tuny chum to hnvo some idea of what
constitutt a a thoroughly God-forsaken town,
but we cannot, even in imagination, picture
to nurself the utter dusolutoness and gener
al ciiHscdncss of a place at which a "devil1
would turn up his nosu in a contemptuous
sneer. Things aro a li tt lo dull m Cairo, it
is true, but you bet your life wo haven't
lost the respect of tramp printers and can
scare up a pair or more of tho most forlorn
looking specimens you over clapped your
optics upon, from under somo pile of rub
bish, or out of Biimo freight car, uny night
of the week,
Republican candidates for thu Legisla
ture aro as thick iu this district as are bees
in a hive, and just as buzzy, too. Jackson
County has half a dozen or moie; Union
County has three or four, and Alexander
County Iibb two, so far as now knovn. The
Senatorial Convention is to be held at Car-
bnndule on the 29th of June, so that there is
still considerable thno in whica candidates
way come . forward ; ond, from present in
dication there is some cause to fear that, by
the time tho convention meets, there will
be but very few "lay-men" left in tbo party
in this Senatorial District. Iiy the rule of
minority representation, nomination by tho
party is equal to election; hence the clamor
for tho nomination. In this county Mr.
John A. Revee was the first to indicato his
intention to contest for tho nomination;
and Capt. Charles Nellis, our city treasurer,
has since also yiujded to the earnest solici
tations of many friends and is a candidate.
Col. John Wood is also spoken of, and we
do not hesitate to say that he would be the
noblest Roman of them all; a good par
liamentarian, a strict diciplinariaD, quick
to detect irregularity of any kind and cer
tain to combat it wherever found, vigor
ously and effectively, a man who has for
years mado public affairs a subject of con
tinuous watch fulness, whether in or out of
public position, and who has had much ex
perience in the management of such affairs;
ho would be a valuable man in any legis
lative body, and ono who would not lose by
comparison, in any particular, with the
best man the Republicans of this district
could trot out. But Col. Wood has busi
ness interests hero which require his con
stant attention, and which would very
probably cause him to refuse the honor;
and the Republican Convention will prob
ably permit him to refuse and set up some
one who is lees of a statesman and more of
a scheming politician.
