Iho action of tho County Court of
Alexander county in refusing to restoro
tho "donatlon.contruct" with tho Cairo
and Vincenncs Rillroad Company has
given gmut comfort to tho rivals of Cairo,
and particularly to Paducah and Evans
ville. Paducah chuckles nnd Evansvlllo

Evansvlllo Courier wo find an artlclo
from Tub Bui.Lr.Ti.v republished an
artlclo in which Gen. Raum's lottor to
Judgo Uross Is referred to and commented'
upon. In its remarks upon tho action of
tho Alexander County Court, the Courier
uses tho following significant language:
" If'c hone ihe eituens of Ezamville will

nity. What is Cairo's Discomfiture

our four railroads if nccessarv. four
Is it not pasting strange that tho action

ber of the court deny that their notion
may destroy an enterprise tho succcts of
which, everybody admits, will build un
i.airo anu oring woaltli and prosperity to
Alexander county? If they cannot, how
do they justify their action ? To do any
act which even endangers tho success of
such an enterprise is bad policy if not
something worse. Hut If tho court have

You ought to reitoro that contract."
"Wo shall not do so," ihe court has rc
resnonded. Why ? Tell us why, honor-
able representatives of tho peoplorvou
wero elected to represent. Will the road
be built without tho contract? If you
believo so, tell us why. Don't let us
burst in Ignorance. Jiut if you havo no

fusal to restore tho contract will not in-

but when, as is their action on the Cairo

which the people who elected them be
lievo should not be done and tho doing of
whicn gives rival cities cauto for rejoicing,
we think that a decent respect for public

THE C. k V. R. It, MATTER.
A History nf ihe Action of the Connty
Cuurtln Reference Thereto.
In July, 1887, tho people of Alcxnnder
county, with an unanimity which con
cluslvoly proved tho great Importanco
they attached to tho success of tho enter
prise, voted to subscribo $100,000 bonds of
tho county to tho enpitnl stock of tho
Cairo and .Vincenncs railroad company.
On November 25, 1807, tho County
Court of Alexander county cntored Into
a contract with tho Cairo nnd Vinccnnes
railroad company, agreeing upon cer
tain conditions that whon tho county had
received tho stock mentioned ntovo It
would cell said stock to tho company for
This contract, which was substantially
tho donation of 105,000 bonds to tho Cairo
nnd Vlnecnncs rnllroad company,met with
tho npproval of nearly all tho cltizons of
tho county not a singlo voice being
raised In protest against it.
fn March, 1809, an act of tho Lcgisla
turo was approved by tho Governor con
jlrming this donation contract. Not
voice protested against tho pasiago of this
bill. Nearly nil tho citizens of thocounty
After tho subscription had been made-
after tho donation contract had been made,
and becauso tho subscription and donation
had been made, Gon. Uurnsido undertook
tho work of constructing tho road.
For n timotho General had fair 'finan
cial weather, nnd sailed along briskly,
confident of his ability to get into a sccuro
port. If ho had dono so, Alexander would
have mado her subscription, havo issued
her bonds, and havo enrriod out In gocd
faith tho donation contract. Rut Oon.
Rurnside, who had Invested in Uu enter
prise nil his wculth, was overtaken by
flnoncial storms, which almost wrecked
him, nnd wus compullcd to tnke In sail
and wait for n pleasant day.
In 1809, Judge Bross, and Associate
Justices Mcarchildon and McCritn.
wero elected mcmbo'rs of the Coun
ty Court of Alexander county,
and entered upon tho discharge of their
iVtmost everybody had learned to reenrd
tho Cairo and Vincennes railroad as one of
the enterprises which might havo been
but wouldn't be, and nearly everybody In
tho county bad dismissed It from mind,
when the County Court, without any ap
parent cause for its action, promulgated
an order declaring the "donation contract"
and tho subscription of the county to tho
capital stock of tho Cairo and Vinccnnes
railroad company null and void. Judge
Bross was tho author of this order, and it
was voted for by Judges Murchildon and
What necessity was there at tho time
for tho promulgation of this order ? Wore
there any petitions of cltitizcna praying
for tho annulment of a subcription nnd
contract which could not bo annulled?
Who asked Judge Brojs to writothis or
der? It evidently grew out of his
own desire, and was tho offspring of his
dlslikoof tlie Cairo and Vincennes railroad
ontcrpriso. Would ho huve rushed for
ward without invitation in the fuco of
public sentiment to declare null nnd void
a contract mado to further nn ontcrpriso
ho endorsed and in tho success of which
ho had a hearty interest? No per
son can believo ho would havo done
so, and no unprejudiced man can
dc.iy that his action in this regard is
prima facie evidence that in making tho
order referred to ho purposely struck n
blow which ho believed would cripplo tho
Cairo and Vincenncs railroad enterprise.
Why Judgo Marchildon voted for tho
order wo do not know, and why Judgo
McCrito voted to nnnul a contract ho
helped to make is a matter entirely be
yond our comprehension.
A few months after this peculiar order
had been promulgated in this peculiar
manner, tho Cairo and Vincenncs rail
road company approached tho County
Court, backed by tho potition of n
largo number of citizens citizons who
represented two-thirds of all tho taxablo
property of tho county, intelligent gon
tlemen who know what thoy wero doing
and asked for tho restoration of tho
"donation contract'' nnd tho appoint
ment of a trustco to hold tho bonds In
trust for tho county. Tho trustco
clause of tho potition was afterwards
withdrawn. This potition tho court
trcuted with marked disrespect, declaring
in an order that many of tho citizens
who had signed it did no, know what
they wero do'.ng, nnd that uuduo influ
ences had been used to obtain signatures.
Pending this decision, Judgo Bross as
sorted that ho would not sign tho bonds if
tho majority of tho court ordered him
to do so. In this action nnd
this assertion of Judgo Dross wo
beliovcd wo saw an outcropping of hostil
ity to tho railroad cnterpriso a determin
ation to murder it in tho houso of its
friends. In this strange order tho court
ordored that tho court should tako into
consideration tho proposition to plaeo tho
subscription voted by tho peoplo on its
original footing, nnd to declaro its decision
on tho first Monday of April lust.
On that day tho court failed to convene,
nnd Judge Bros called a special term of
Boforo tho special term convened Judgo
Bross declared his wlllingncH to placo
tho subscription on its original footing, und
to order an olection on tho proposition to
restoro tho donation contract, declaring
that If it majority of tho electors of tlio
county should voto In luvor of tho dona
tion ho would bo in favor of restoring tho
contract. This determination of Judgo.
Hron wits telegraphed to Gen. Burnslde,
tho telegram having been first submitted
to his inspection nnd by him approved.
Tho court met In special session, and,ln
stcad of placing tho subscription on lln
original footing, agreed to mako It
on conditions which, l( thoy had been
accepted by tho eompr.ny, would, lmvo
rendered tho bonds vnluolcss unsaleable
Moro than this, In tho fuco of Judge
Bross' promise, tho court refused
to submit to tho peoplo tho ques
tion of restoring tho donation contract. In
this action of tho court wo bcliovod nnd
yot bollovo wo saw n spirit of hostility to
tho railroad enterprise n renewed deter
mination to kill it.
Wo aro nwaro of tho fact, that Judgo
Bross has nssertcd that ho wns in good
faith In favorof what ho promised to favor,
and got out of his colleagues all that could
bo obtained; but Judgo Marchildon, wo
are Informed, has said that ho voted
against tho order of tho special term be
causo it did not restoro tho subscription to
its original footing did not go lar onouch
In tho direction of tho wishes of friends of
enterprise ; whllo Judgo McCrito declared
on tho day on which tho order was made,
nnd after it had bocn made, that ho did not
know exactly what tho court had done
that tho subscription hud been mado with
somo sort of restrictions which ho did not
clearly understand. Hero wo have two
members of tho court protesting that tho
order of tho court did not meet
their views, nnd ono member that ho
did not know what had beon ordorod.
Who enn explain this mystery? And
whit is still moro astonishing, In thosnmo
breath. In which Judgo Bross asserts that
ho wished to do moro than tho court did,
ho declares his determination to not do
anything moro In behalf of tho project,
not if tho city of Cairo should sink not
if nincty-nino voters in every hundred in
thocounty should order him to placo tho
subscription on its original footing r.nd
restore tho donation contract.
In tho faco of theso facts, there are n
few of tho citizens of the county who up
pluud tho action of tho court, and wo arc
informed that Judgo Bros has said his
determination to do nothing mure to rest
on his oars has grown out of the fact
that ho has been abused. Wo cannot be
lieve this. Judgo Bross is n man of firm
convictions an Intelligent gentleman, for
whom personally we entertain a sentiment
of warm friendship and respect, and wo
have too high an opinion of his manhood
to bcliovo that ho would allow so trivial a
cause us tho abuse of any mnn or set of
men to wurp him trom doing what
ho believes he should do. Ho
too much of a man to
say : "1 know I ought to do this or
that, but won't because tho .9n, or the Pa
per, or The Uulletin, has mado a mouth
at mo." Ho is, wo hope, too much of a
Democrat to tav: "I know the peoplo
nro In favor of this enterprise, but I will
not do tho will of tho peoplo becauso I
don't liko Col. Taylor, and disliko Con
tains Uurd nnd Hallidnv." Ho cannot bo
driven, wo know, but wo hope that he can
bo reached by reason that ho can bo in
fluenced by tho will of his constituents.
Wo tWoforo hopo that tho movement
now on foot to obtain an expression of
public sentiment by petition and a public
meeting may meet it return of good
results; nnd wo appeal to tho County
Court to Judgo Bross and Associnto
Justices McCrito and Merchildon ap
peal to thorn in bohalf of tho ondangcrod
prosperity of Cairo and Aloxandor county,
to give to this mnttcr unprejudiced con
sideration, and, sinking individual prejit
dico in consideration of tho public weal, to
comply with tlio earnest desiro of tho poo
plo, and by granting tho petition of tho
Cairo nnd Vinccnnes railroad company
leave no room for tho churgo that thoy
nro In enmity to tho Interests of
tho city and county in which thoy
live. Granting tho prayer of this petition
may not sccuro to us tho Cairo and Vin
cennes railroad, but granting it cannot in
any ovont work to tho disadvantage of tho
people of Alexander county cannot tako
from them a cent unless for it thoy obtain
a fair equivalent.
Citizen's Meetino. Yesterday morn
ing, at tho request of tho attorney and
resident directors of tho Cairo nnd Vinccn
nes railroad company,n number of citizens
hold nn informal meeting at tho rooms of
the Delta Social Club, to consult with ref
erence to tlio Aloxandor county subscrip
tion and donation contract. About twun-
ty-flvo persons wero present, but no for
mal action was taken. Captain Win. P.
Halliday was called to tho chair, and Mr.
E, F. Davis was appointed socretury.
After Genorul Itaum hud mado a state
ment of tho condition and necessities of tlio
Cairo and Vincenncs railroad company, n
motion was mado to appoint n committeo
to prcparo for circulation in tho city und
county, a potitbn praying tho County
Court to reconstdor its action in rofurencu
to tills matter, and restoro tlio donation
contract. Tho motion was unanimously
adopted, nnd Messrs. Taylor, J.M.Phil
lips nnd Obcrly nttmed us tho com niltoe.
Aftor this action hud been taken, It was
suggested that, as tho meeting had been
called Informnlly, without intention to
tako doflnito action, nnd tho great muss of
tho peoplo took a lively intorest In tho
railroad project, that it would bo well to
cull a mass meeting, to bo hold on Tues
