the idea of water in any shapo disgusted

pouring in from all parts of tho city. At

We, tho undersigned electors and Ux

spectfully represent unto your honorable
That we bcliovo and have no doubt that
th f . nroineritv of Cairo. Alexander
county aud Southern Illinois depends in
great measure If not wholly upon tho
speedy construction of the Cairo & Vin
ceiincs and Cairo & St. Louis railroads ;
That, in our opinion, tho timo Is now
present, when, in order tosecuro tho speedy
construction of theso projected roads and
to maintain the pledge! lVilh of the coun
ty, you, tho representatives of tho pcoplo
o"f Alexander county, to whom has lccn
entrusted thoperformanco of such duties,
should extend to tlie?o enterprises tho nid
heretofore promised to them by tho people
and tho Court;
Therefore, wo, your petitioners, being
Informed that tho Cairo & Vinecnnes rttil

anil believing mat, witnoui sum restora
tion, said project will bo indefinitely post
poned, if not irretrievably destroyed, would
respectfully pray mat your nonorauie
body restore tho contract horctoforo mado
between tho County Court and said com
pany, known as thu " donation contract,"
stipulating mat, in coneiuurauon oi eaiu
restoration, work shall bo begun on said
road not later than tlio 1st ol beptemucr

it ol August, It! I J.
Gen. Raum, being called upon to address
the meeting, responded In a speech of
about a half hour's length, during which he
letailcd the proscnt condition of tho local
assets of the Cairo and Vincenncs railroad,
declaring that tho only obstacle In the way
of a completion of negotiations for funds
with which to rcsumo work upon and finish
the road was tho refusal of tho County
Court of Alcxandor county to revivo tho
donation contract between tbo county and
railroad company. Ho also corn
batted tho conclusion formed
by some, that tho road will
bo built anyhow, whether tho county aids
it or not, most successfully. He declared
that no roads had been built in tho West
or South, nor in tho East,
knowledge, without local aid.
It was a
vain dolusion, therefore, to expect to tako
hold of tho Cairo and Vlnccnnes ralroad
without local aid.
In roforrinc to tho County Court and
tho right of petition, tho Generill assumed
that tho pooplo might not bo ablo to in
dueo Judgo llross to conform to tho wishes
of tho pcoplo j ho had doclared his pur-
puso not to do so; but tho Associate
Justlcos might bo "less firm" in resisting
tho popular sentiment. If, however, liko
Judgo Dross, thoy could not porsuado
themselves to carry out tho wishes of tho
people, It was tho duty of tho whole court
to resign. Tho court was elected as ser
vants and not ns mastors of tlio pooplo,
and when its mombors find It inconsistent
with tholr convictions of right to carry
out tho will of thoso who elected them,
they should got out of tho way and lot
tho electors choose n court whose opinions
would not run counter to thoso of the pub
lic. Tlio expressions called out .long con
tinued applause, Indicating plainly that
tho vast crowd presont woro friends of
tho railroad, r.nd earnestly in favor of re
moving every obstacle in tho way of its

frank, manly, forclblo speech, worthy of

that Pulaski county was In favor of giving

road, If built, would bo worth all and more
than It could cost tho people, nnd ho was
In favor of extending to it nil promised

cannot oven attempt to give a synopsis,
was forcible and directly to tho point.
Hon. D. W. Munn, Chairman of tho

And Wliereai, Tho County Court of Al

and In accordance with tho expressed will
and for tho best interests of tho pcoplo ;
And Whereat, Claiming the right as vo
tor and tax-payers to bo heard by that
court, wo further claim that in all nucs-
Hons Involving tho pecuniary Interests of
tho pooplo in regard to public improve
ments, tho County Court should conform
tholr action to tho vrlshcs of a majority of

And Whereat, Wo nro tinnltcrably of
mo opinion wmi ino growtn, prosperity
and futuro welfaro of our county and tho
city of Cairo aro dependent upon tho spee
dy construction of tho Cairo and St. Louis
nnd Cairo and VInconncs railroads;
And Whereat, The pcope of tho county
have horctoforo voted to subscrlbo to tho
capital stock of tho Cairo nnd Vincenncs
railroad company, and, with great una
nimity, havo acquiesced in nnd ngrecd to
what is known ns tho."donntion contract,"
nnd aro still of opinion that said subscrip
tion nnd contract should bo carried out,
provided the construction of snid road can
thereby bo secured;
Therefore Resolved, That wo moit earn
estly request our County Court to not en
danger tho construction of said road by
withholding tbo nid horctoforo promised
by vote and contract to said enterprise;
Hetoltrd further, That wo aro In favor
of extending tho timo for resuming work
on tho Cairo nnd Vincenncs rnllroad un
der the "donation contract" to Septem
ber 1st, lb" 1, and for completing tho road
until August 1st, 1873, and urgently re
quest tho County Court to pass nn order
carrying out tbo nbove view at an enrly
day of their Juno Term, 1871.
D. T. Lincgar addressed tho meeting.
Ho complimented Judge llross us an hon
est man, of firm convictions, one who re
sisted n great dual of argument, yet ono
who cheerfully surrenders his opinion
when convinced of his error. Ho denied
tho power of tho Judgo to annuo tho do
nation contract ; but capitalists would re
quiro the removal of ovory cloud Irom it
before accepting it ns n basis of credit. Ho
spoke of the benefits tho road would con
fer upon Alexander county, ns being of
ton-fold more valuo than the benefits it
would confer upon any other county on
tho line. Tho terminus, tho machine
shops and foundurios of tho company
would bo located here, and who should say
that these would not bo a hundred times
more valuable than tho pittance our citi
zens would retain In their pockets by de
feating tho road mid cvnding tho pay
ment of the interact on tho county sub
scription. Tho people and courts of Alex
ander county, therefore, should bo the. lat
to obstruct the building of tho road.
Mr. Llnegar's speech was an earnest and
ofl'octivo one, and elicited frequent rounds
of tho most enthusiastic applause.
On motion of Col. Taylor tho Chair
named .1. M.'Phllllps, D. Hurd nnd S. S.
Taylor as u committco of tiireo to circu
late the petition (n copy of which Is given
above) for signatures.
Mr. Oberly moved that tho Chair, when
ho shall havo sufficiently Infurmad him
self, shall appoint a committco consisting
of parties representing n majority of tho
taxuble property of tho county, to pro
scnt In person tho petition, to tho County
Court, on tho first day of next its session,
t to-wit: on Monday next.
We have no time to comment upon this
great demonstration. It was nn outpour
ing of tho substantial citizons and tax
pavers an expression of favor for tho
Cairo and VInconncs railroad project, and
of condemnation of tho action of tho Alex.
nndor County Court, that was outspoken,
omphalic and unmistakable.
