The Daily Mlctin.
County Court was in session all day
again yesterday, occupied in hearing argu
ments in the tax objection cases. Mr. W.
C. Mulkey spoke all day from 9 o'clock
a. m. till 5 o'clock p. m., stopping only
about an hour for dinner, in reply to the
argument of Mr. Lincgar he day before.
The argument in this case was concluded.
Another case will bo taken up to-dav, with
the Illinois Central Rulroad Company as
objector. Tho company objects to the tax
levied on its elevator, on the ground that
it is part of the operating property of the
railroad, which is exempted from taxa
tien by the State law, in consideration of
tho payment to the State by the company
of 7 per cent, upon its yearly earnings.
State's Attorney Leek appears for the coun
ty collector in this case, and Judge W. II.
Green for the railroad company. Mr. Leek
takes the ground that the law does not ex
empt from taxation any property of the
rempany that is not necessary in the opera
tion of the railroad; and that the elevator
is not of this nature, but is an institution by
itself separate and distinct from and en
tirely independent of, the railroad, as the
railroad is independent ol it. The argu
ment will be opened this morning and may
last all dty.
It has been demonstrated beyond any
reasonable doubt, by Mr. DesRochcr and
others in this county, tnat strawberries can
be raised here that would rival any of the
finest produced in the most favored regions
in Southern Illinois. It is also a matter
of common consent, that tho cultivation ofj
strawberries is one of the most profitable
occupations a man can engage in. Now,
in view of these two generally conceded
truths isn't it a little strange that Alexan
der County farmers do not pay more atten
tion t the cultivation of strawberries than
they do? These thoughts were suggested
by the following item taken from the last
issue of the lieu ton Standard, which gives
some very interesting statistics of the busi
ness this year "While tho strawberry
pick between Cairo and Centralia is not as
large as last year, and the quality nut so
good by reason of cold weather and heavy
rains, the shipments have been large ehough
to warrant the belief that the yield has
been profitable to the farmer. Forty cars
were loaded Sunday between Cdro and
Centralia, the larget amount shipped at
any one time this season. As each car con
tains 400 crates, of 24 quarts each, the mag
nitude of the berry business in this Bection
may be better understood. Pickers are
paid 2 cents a quart, and crates cost 20
cents each. It is estimated that over f 500,
000 worth of berries will be shipped from
the section named this year, mostly to Chi
A resolution offered by Alderman Pa
tier, ordering the City Marshal to see that
all houses on Thirteenth Street, used for
illegetimate purposes, be vacated, passed
the Council Tuesday night. This resolution
was certainly not the result of that delib
eration and wise forethought that should
precede all matters brought up for action
in the City Council. It was written and
introduced in the heat of a warm debate,
and was adopted by the Council in a mo
nmnt when excitement blinded its better
judgment. We do not believe that it would
have been introduced by the Alderman, had
he been calm; nor passed by the Council,
had it given the subject any consideration
at all. It was one of those worse than fool
ish things that are often "railroaded''
through a deliberative body (or, rafher, one
that should be deliberative), and which
always cither die with the excitement in
which they were created, or work incalcu
lable mishief if followed up with the same
insane spirit that fathered them. We do
not doubt that the Council will agree with
us when we say that the social evil is not a
thing to be made tile subject of any
such rash legislation as this. We believe
that, in their cooler moments, the Alder
men will all agree that the wisest policy to
be pursued toward the evil is regulation, a
strict surveilance of the victims at all
times, seclusion, modesty in dress and be
havior when necessarily abroad,
etc.; all will also agree that
to the proper supervision of the evil
and a proper enforcement of the regulations
adoped with reference to it, concentration
is absolutely necessary. Scattered all over
tho city in "private" rooms, supervision
would be impossible and the demoralizing
influence would be mote wide-spread aid
almost beyond the reach of law. We do
not believe that either Alderman Patier or
the Aldermen who voted for his resolution,
intended to undertake the herculean job of
exterminating the evil entirely from this
community. We give him and them credit
for at least a willingness to profit by the
experience of the civilized world in the
treatment of the soci.il evil. Nor do wer
believe that they intended to gather up the
unclean mass and scatter it in particles all
over tho city, to work greater mischief. The
Alderman's resolution refers only to Thir
tcenth Street, ami we believe the Alderman
intends it to apply only to two or three of
the houses on said street, situated near Com
mercial Avenue. And we may pro further
still. We cannot help but believe also,
that the resolution would not have been in
troduced at all, nor adoptod, if the two or
three houses referred to were not believed
to belong to a certain individual
whom the gentlemen desired to rebuke
and punish because he had incurred
their displeasure, and if ' other un
worthy personal and sectional feel
ings had not been permitted
to xcrt an unduo influence.
And yet the gentlemen who championed
this resolution and who voted for it would
havo the public believe that they were act
uated purely by a desire to "reform" the
moral status of the community 1 The Phari
sees are not all dead yet.

A New Disease,
Among the curious maladies which
advancing civilization seems destined
to bring in its train not tho least re
markable is that on which Parisian
doctors aro bestowing a good deal of at
tention just now the obliquity of mind
which has been called pear tics effaces.
Tho sufferer is usually a man in appar
ently good health, and is affected with
no premonitory symptoms, although,
on tho other baud, thero are cases
where the malady results from oilier
diseases, and is introduced by a feel
ing of weakuess and sickness. It gen
erally comes on suddenly, when tho
patient arrives at a particular place or
is brought into the presence of a par
ticular person. He then is observed to
bo in mortal terror without any appar
ent cause. The earth seems to him to
open into a chasm before his feet, or ho
linds himself isolated by an immense
and impenetrable space from the rest
of the world. If he is on the pavement
ho dare not for his life step onto the
roadbed, but stands stock still to bo
jeered at by tho street boys. If ho is
ou a step, hois afraid to move up or
down for fear of being dashed to pieces
in some imaginary abyss. All this
time ho keeps his wits or, at least, a
great many of them about him, aud
is sensible of his absurd position. Some
times ho has enough souse to avoid pla
ces where tho attack has come on he
fore, or seems likely to do so again.
Another peculiarity is that most of tho
sufferers belong to the liberal profes
sions, and to the higher ranks of socie
ty. By examination into a consider
able number of cases in the hospitals,
it was found that men more ofLeti buf
fer than women, in a proportion of
about four to one. Lon lun UluOc.
