Wk would Mrggcst that tho friends of tho

tive Tho county court would nnver have
permitted tho question to go to tho peoplo
if tliey had not been confident that a ma
jority of tho ballots cast would bo against
tho proposition. This fact is evident from
tho course of Marchlldon and McCrlte.
Tho petition in favor of tho proposition
contained 1,100 names; tho petition against
it 728, a fact which shows that tho opposi
tion is moro formldablo than Is generally
believed. Confidence in tho result may
mako tho friends of tho road relax their
hold, nnd result in defeat ; and that many
of tho men who woro very active
while, the county court was stubborn,
havo come to tho conclusion that the bat
tle has been fought and won is o'vident
from the fact that thoy aro resting on their
oars making no effort whatovor. Of tho

With our Into cxporlonco in railroad
mallow wo can well " appreciate tho
cxlstcnco of that individual whoso hostil
ity to all public improvements found
vont in tho expression that "the domed
rnilroads if thoy kept on growing would
soon run out the test old coaches ;" nnd can
exctuo tho "spirit" that moved him when
wo think of tho short step back lo tho per
iod of jogging, Jolts and long Journoys.
Uut.'whut shall we sny of thoso Individuals
who, living (after dark) In tho glowing,
glaring, glorious gaslight ot this progress
ive ago talk of oil oil as a substitute for
gas and odlferoua coul oil nt that. "We
have before us n small phial of tho article,
procured especially for this occasion, nnd
solemnly assort, staking in substantiation
of the assertion that which wo hold price
less nnd above vnluo our character for
veracity that Coleridge's city, with its
seventy separate and woll and ncutely de
fined stinks would bo n Peri's paradise of
fragranco compared with n nineteenth cen
tury ton lit with coal oil. Wo have
heard of leapt into tho laps of tho dark
agcs,but It has nevor been vouchsafed to us
to gaze upon tho 'loaplsl" until recently.
It was tin alderman: nnd wo gazed on
It with revoronce, pity nnd in nwo ; rov-
erenco for its ago ; in nwo at the anclont,
clothed in tho robes of and moving among
tho living ; nnd in pity, that it had no
great deal can bo said in favor of this
proposition to light tho city with oil a
great deal that is entirely new, and which
has probably cscapod tho nttcntlon of tho
gentlemen who havo charge of the "light"
of tho city. In tha first placo, it will not
bu denied that to light and keep in repair
say.olghty coal oil lamps, will glvo steady
employment to as many small boys ; at,
In round figures, fifty conts per weok, or a
trifle over two dollars por month. " Ah I '
we hoar a committeeman say, 1 that's too
much ; that's half as much us gas at
present cosU, to begin with.' Cost,
what's cost, when tho labor and morals of
tho town ore Involved ? If we can keop
eighty small boys busy with lamps, hum
ors and chimneys, and off of tho strcots,
what tax-payer would refmo to pay two
dollars per month, or oven twodollnrs and
ten cents ? Not one. In Almost tho lan
guage of Dan Mum, wo say you may rake
Cairo with n flno tooth comb and you
can't find such n one. Besides, it is not
long since Cairo had a committee on man
ufactures which solicited tho attention of
manufacturers from abroad to tho eligi
bility of tho city as n manufacturing
point even going so far us offering and
giving subsidies as inducement.1. If it is
n good policy to use with strangers, is it
not good for the city or the citizens them
selves? Let us bo mathematical. There
aro eighty chimneys. Good. Thoro arc
carelessness, boyishness, wrecklctsness nnd
viciousncss, nnd you have on average de
struction of forty chimnoys per night.
Again good. Thirty nights io it month,
forty chimneys in n night, and you have
twelve hundred in a month, or a yearly
destruction of ono hundred and forty thou
sand chimneys ; or, what is yet the best con
sideration, tho creation of a now branch of
industry glass works. That is tho urgu-
ment mathematically and logically carried
out, and tho gas committee should give to
it their most profound thought. It might
be objected that lamps would bo brokon at
times; that they might explode and mako
excellent suits for damages; that the force
of smnll boys would havelo be doubled on
windy nights, and that tho lamps might
Btnoko nnd bo clothed in Impenetrable
darkness. But such insignificant objec
tions do not weigh with us, nnd wo trust
the commilteo will turn a deaf ear to them,
tho lighting of tho lamps with oil will
get tho city into tho glass business, wo say
with tho alderman from tho second ward,
"Glvo us oil oil, oil tho time I" What
do tho committee say?
Shameful Aiiuse. Tho Anna (Union

tains tho following paragraph:
Judgo Ilross, of Cairo, must cither bo

Tho conduct of tho county court in rof
oronco to tho Cairo and Vlncennes rail
road mattor, was very provoking, but tho
responsibility docs not rest with Judgo
Ilross. JTI10 Judge, it is truo, angered
against tho Cairo and Vlncennes railroad
onterpriso by personal considerations, did
not act as promptly as ho should havo
acted, but, nt tho last moment, ho camo
bravely to tho rescue, and by declaring In
favor ot submitting tho wholo question to
thu people at tho ballot-box saved it from
irrevocable defeat. And, in justice to
Judge Bros, it should be stated ho
now asserts that ho was always in favor of
allowing tho peoplo to decide tho question,
but was opposed und his wishes defoatod
by his asiociatos. Whatever may havo
been tho motives which influenced Judgo
Ilross in his conduct with rcforonco to
this matter wo are glad to know that no
harm has rcsultod from his stubbornness.
Indeed, tho delay has resulted in goodi

fairest nnd most liberal that has yet boon
