Capt. E. B. Cryer of the D. Stein
thinks that the jocose individual who
started the report that the D. Stein
had sunk In Red river should go and
"soak his head" in that stream-there
being water enough for that purpose
but not enough to sink the Stein in.
This boat arrived up yesterday.
There is a good prospect now that
Monroo will have a National Bank.
That it needs such, goes beyond say
lung, and that such an institution
would pay is a certainty.
We suggest to the City Council that
they discuss at the next meelfng, the
market house-question. A market
house centrally located, ought to pay
a good dividend to the city.
Wesley Wynn, the young colored
brakesman, who was run over by a
train of the V. S. & P. R. R., yester
terday, mention of which accident was
made in this paper last evening, (lied
at 5 p. m.-about three hours after the
occurrence and was buried at 3 o'clock
this afternoon. "Blood," as he was
known, was one of those colored cits
izens who worked hard and respected
all and was dutiful to any trust im
posed upon him by his employers.

Ed. I'legraph :
As a matter of information to the
people of West Monroe, will yort
kindly convey a request to "Dotter"
for further details of the "large and
enthusiastic meeting "held" there yes
terday ? It is my pleasure to own
residence in that quiet town, but I
heard or Iknow nothing of the rpeet
lug, andt indeed, I have boon unable
to find a man who will own his pres.
ence or enthusiasm on that occasion.
Will "Dotter" name the names of
those who were piosenl ?
[FROM OUR REGULAR REPORTER.]J
Business has been pretty fair in
town to~day, there being a number of I
wagons in from the country.
The steamer D. Stein direct from
Rted river arrived at our lauding early I
ast night and will leave for the Batu i
tholomew this evening, going after a
load of e'd for the oil mills at this
Two bales cotton reca.ived in town
Mr, David Newhouser of New Or. I
leans, was in the city to-day.
The Hon. C. Newton of Morehouse
seems to be very popular with the peo
ple of West Monroe, and is considered
by them as being the most available
man in the District to enter the Con.
y gressional race with Mr. King and the
rest and to the knowing politicians of
that ward we wish to add that the
Hon. J. Floyd King our present effi
a cient and worth representative is hard
to curry as a congressional steed from
d the fact that the opposition has been
eight years in trying to "brush him
•. Our citizens should now aid our
base ballists who are willing to fur
nish them with plenty of amusement
during the summer, of an exciting,
though relishing nature. The latest c
- correspondence concerning the ",na
Stional game" is from Farmervile, and
the Monroe club is arranging the pre
liminaries and will accept.

Dear Sir:-I see by the OcUAcHtrrA
TELEGRAPH that Monroe B. B. Club
has been trying to get a game with the
Union Club. I am manager of the Un
id ons and have not seen anything f:om
the club at Monroe to indicate that
they desired to play us. I will say we
stand ready to play any club that feels
disposed to cross bats with us. We
are averse to playing for money.
. We understand that you are arran
.I ging a stand and enclosure, so that if
nthe public wishes to see they can do
so by paying for it. What propor
tion of the gate receipts are you will.,
it ing to allow visiting clubs when they O
elplay a Monroe nine, and what per- ,
t- lcentage of the gate receipts will be ex. 1
y pected in case we make arrangments
with other clubs to play on your
grounds ? I am anxious to play there |
,d if suitable arrangements can be made,
a and will endeavor to make your out
r- lay on the Monroe boys as light as •
L, possible-In fact, I think if we cant
d work harmoniously together, the out-.
e lay can all be made back this summer.
k I think I can arrange to play Bas.'
is trop, Sheveport and Homer there at
I Monroe. An interest in the game can
d be worked up if we try, and at least
-. have a good deal of sport.
J. M. RA '.x, f
Manager of the Union 3I. B. Club.
The marriage certificate of Grover
Cleveland and Francis Folsom shows
, that the former is 19 years old and
,, the latter 21. As we all know, "fig.
d ures do not lie," and, as we have
learned from the alchemists, the figure
n seven is particularly lucky. Now, if
one reflects that the bride's age is
t- three times seven,and that the groom's
e age is seven times seven, and the dif.
terence between them is four times
seven, he will see how luck they
1 ought to be.--Ciwinuaoli lEnqt/irter.
A l)akota judge, in the course of his
charge to the jury recently, touched
on an important point. IIe said:
"'Although the prosecution has es
tablished the fact that the defendant's
n father was once a member of the legis
l lature, this should have no influencts e
with you in bringing in your verdict.
n The unfortunate affair in the life of 3
y his father might, of course, make us
a look with suspicion on the family, but
