Thirty-nine pilots of boats running

to have company, especially Tadies, but if
the rule adds to the safety of life and

The cuu-e of the failure of Grant &
Ward is concisely stated by one of the law
yers engaged in the suit against the firm to
be ."that the real nature of the business
coneistei in discounting the fanciful pros
pect of imaginary profits to bo derived
from fictitious contracts founded on manu
factured and artificial contributions of alto
gether imaginary money."
It will be remembered that the Repub
lican papers were, a few weeks ago, indulg
ing in a little dry humor ever the thct that
Mr. Tilden was dihponng of his stacks. It
bis turned out that the oil fellow knew
. what be was about. Ho may not be so
muscular as Grant, but when it comes to
business sense lie can double discount the
'man on horseback" every time.

Ice cream is to bo more in demand
this summer than it has been. The weath
er is to be warmer and, it being Leap
Ycat, young ladies arc to be less "back
ward in coming forward." Wo infer ull this
from the fact that Phil Saup has just pur
chased a new ice cream fretz.T for $ 150,
which will enable him to make better ice
cream and more of it than he could before.
The annual examination has been in
progress in the public schools since yester

wiil close Friday fur the year, to be re
opened on the first Monday in October.
- One of tho most interesting features
of the sociable at the residence of Mr. Can
dee Tues lay night was the sale of baskets
provided by the young ladies in attendance.
Mr. lliugh was auctioneer. Some of the
baskets brought several dollars. The total
amount realized from this siurce alone was
?33. The total net proceeds of the even
ing's entertainment was f 52. There was a
largo attendanco and pleasure unalloyed.
They are Btill working on the Illinois
Central iaclino at East Cairo, and the W

the Mobile and Ohio incline there. It is
probable that several weeks will yet be
consumed in restoring tho I. C. incline to
its former good condition, for it appears
that during the high water the track at the
lower end was raised up and turned over or
set up on edge, for a distance upward of
several hvndred feet.
After a careful computation by the
statistician of Tub Bulletin, wo feel jus
tified in stating that each of the Republican
Presidential aspirants has a decided advan
tage of all the others. Tho statement may
appear a little puzzling, but as it is based
wholly upon information drawn from Re
publican newspapers, none will be so rash
as to doubt it. That the convention at
Chicago may develop a different state of
affairs is something for which wo disclaim
To morrow ia Decoration Day and the

fare will bo 23 cents and tickets rnay be
had either at the Union Depot ticket office
or at Mr. Ilirry Schuh's drugstore up totvn.
The fare is alio greatly reduced from Carmi
down to Cairo in order to induce as many
people as possible to conae down. We have
not yet learned what manner of attractions
will bo provided at the Cemetery, except
that thi Cairo Band will be there to furnish

which we have just received a copy, the
Governor of Illinois, "whereases," that it is
right and proper," to observe the day, in
order that, among other things, the memory
of the gallant union soldiers m ty "forever
be'perpetuated." He proclaims the 30th of
May as "Memorial Day" and requests all
"patriotic union-loving" people to "assem

the said soldiers graves with flowers, "em

The W. C. T. U. ladies had an impres

and it was tolerably well attended by gen
tlomen also. As per programme, fervont
prayers were offered for a National Constitu
tional amendment prohibiting the traffic in
intoxicating liquors as a beverage, and for
clergymen and editors and politicians; and
also that iu the coming national contest
men may vote on all social questions as
their wives would have them to vote. The
ladies certainly undertook apretty bigjob for
one day, but they wero equal to tho effort
anyhow; and while we editors will, as a
rule, feel a little uncomfortable at being
sandwitched in between the two extremes,
preachers and politicians, we will yt feel
humbly grateful to them for their kind re

5nly concession to bo made to the antl-
Jjutler wing of the party. Ho said tho

reached sturdy manhood, and no
longer need to seek alliances with
any other party. It waa the only
political party that stood with the
ttupruinc Court of tho United States at
lta back, aud endorsing its leading
principle. It was the concentration of
wealth this convention waa to light,
and iu that they were espous
ing the cause of the people. Geo. C.
Hackstaff (of Missouri) was elected tem
porary Secretory. The name of Lee
Crandall, which was also proposed, was
received with hisses, and withdrawn.
Crandall is anti-Butler.
When George U. Jones, of New York,
attempted to introduce a resolution, tho
Butler men shouted him down, raising a
score of points of order. The Credentials
Committee was appointed and the con
vention adjourned till 3 p. m.

Wabash, Ind., May 28. Great excite
ment has been created at Xenia, near this
place, by the discovery of a half-pound
dynamite shell, with a three-foot fuse

It is supposed the intention of the villain
was to explode the dynamite at nlirlit
when no one w;is rn the office, so as to
destroy the building without taking lifo.

Wasiiixgtox, D. C, May 28. The
House surprised itself and all sicctators
to-day by refusiug to take up the river
and harbor bill, rejecting it for the legis
lative bill, which is now being consid
ered. Tho belief waa openly expressed
In debate by a member of the River and
Harbor Committee, during the discussion,
that if the bill was not acted upon now
it would go over without aetioti
this session. The belief is
echoed by many others iu and out of the
Ilouso. This, however, seems doubtful,
as there having been no bill of this sort
at the last session, there is great need lot
one at this term.
Representative Thompson gave notico
that when the legislative and executive
bill came up he would move to amend so
as to place the collection of internal reve
nue in the hands of Custom Districts. Mr.
Dorsheimer warmly supported Mr.
J. T. Heard, who is a candidate for the
Republican nomination for Congress in
the Sedalia (Mo.) District, starts home
to-niht to devote himself to the cau
vasa. In the Senate to-day Mr. Vest, from
the Commerce Committee, reported fa
vorably, with an amendment, a bill to au
thorize the construction of a bridge
across the Missouri River at Leaven
worth. Congressman O'Neill says he thinks the
St. Louis delegation will be able to de
feat the section of the Executive aud Ju
dicial appropriation bill which provides
for the closing of the Assay oftlce at St.
The sub-committee ol the House Com- I
mittee on Agriculture reported to the full
committee a bill to establish agricultural
experiment stations in connection with
the various State agricultural colleges.
Senator Cullom reported from the Com
mittee on Pensions a bill conferring a
pension upon all persons who served three
months during the war, and havu honor
able discharges, and who are or shall be
come disabled from any cause not the re
sult of their Own gross carelessness, dis
reputable conduct, or vicious hubits, and
who shall also be dependent, wholly or in
part, upon their own labor or pecuniary
assistance from others for means of com.
Mr. Hoar reported favorably from tho
Committee on Claims the bill to reim
burse the several Slates for interest paid
on loans; also the bill for paying $35,000

penditures owing to the revolutionary
Mr. Wilson offered a resolution direct
ing the Secretary of the Interior to fur
nish copies of correspondence with the
Superintendent of the lellowstone Park.
The Mexican veterans pension bill
was taken up. A discussion arose
on air. Logan's amendment, which
allows pensions to widows of veterans,
wuo nave uoi remarried, out striKes out
the provisions Inserted by the Senate
committee that proof of necessitlous cir
cumstances must be given before advan
tage can be taken of the measure.
Mr. Beck called attention to the fact
that the amendment would pension wid
ows who married veterans after the war.
"I don t believe in that principle." said
the Kentticklan. 'Older men get younger
wives if they want."
Does the .Senator refer to .Mexican
veterans," asked Mr. Logan.
'I refer to tlio geueral rule," replied
Mr. Beck. "Old men seem to nrefcr
young women, and 1 am afraid there are
some senators Here who would follow
that rule." Laughter.
"You'll have to refer that iroblera to
some older Senator than I," laughingly
said Mr. Logan.
Mr. Beck broached into the discussion
of the effects of the principle which pen
sions widows marrying subsequent to the
wars In w men their husbands fought,
which was equivalent to giving a bonus
of ninety-six dollars a year to girls of six
teen to marry veterans.
Mr. Vooniccs suggested that the Dass-
age of the bill as It came from the House
would obviate the dilllculty.
Mr. Scales (of N. C'.l. from tho Com.
