A grand picnic will bo given by tho

I'KitfONAL "Wo received a visit yestcr.
day from Charley Millard, ono of tho at
tnenees of the Dally JCocky .Mountain
A'etw, Denver, Colorado. For a number
of years Mr. Millard has been n resident
on tho Pacific Slope and of the White Pine
region'. He is on a visit tohis friends at
Tiik Cocntt Court and this Vin
CCNNK.H Road. Tho County Court will
convono to-morrow, in special session, to
finally dispose of tho Cairo and Vincenncs
Railroad question. Thatthedccisionof tho
court will bo in accordance with tho wishes
of the people wo havo now every reason to
believe. Judge Brots who has hesitated,
moil probably bc3tito he could not sec
what was clear to tho mentnl perception of
nine pooploout of every ten in Cairo, has
openly inserted his determination (the
other members of tho court not objecting),
to mnko the proposed subscription of
$100,000 to the capital stock of the Cairo
and Yincenncs Railroad Company, and to
submit to a voto of tho pcoplo tho propo
sition to chnngo tho subscription, under
certain restrictions, into a virtual dona
tion, agreeing that, If tho voto of the ma
Jority shall be in the affirmative, an order
of the couit in accordance with the wishes
of the majority shall be forthwith made.
'NYe can see no objection to this discreet
programme, except that it I a very round
about way to arrivo nt ft forcgono conclu
sion ; but tho members of the court may
bo wiso in wishing to havo a formal de
claration of the peoplo of the county to
pcint to in tho event of an "after clap."
To nuke haste slowly is rnott generally
the best rule in public matters, but wo
cannot understand why tho informal elec
tion proposed should not bo held in-tcn
days after tho adjournment of the court
instead of thirty as suggested by tome.
The representative of Gen. Burntidc, now
in the city, hu., we aro informed b,' ono of
tho resident director., said, within a day
or two, that work would be recommenced
on the road as soon an tho expired 'con
tracts with tho counties nlong tho line of
tho road had been reinstated, and Alexan
der is tho only county, wo believe, that
hangs fire. Therefore, although slow
has to may on most occasions bo proper,
all tiio expedition consistent with dis
creet carefulness of tho people's interests
should bo used by tho court. in this mut
ter; and, since the people themselves have
to decide this matter and havo mado up
their minds already, the election might as
well be held in ten days ns in thirty. All
of which, in tho language of petitioners, is
