MR. JAS. SMITH, SB.V., OK WASIINlaTOJf, II.L
I.N0IH, DIHArrr.AUKl) UK IS LAST HEARD
FROM AT CAIRO A 1110 RHWARI).
About tlio first of December Mr. Jas
Smith, Sen., nn old nnd highly respectable
citizen of Washington, Illinois, left his
homo in that city logo to Chicago to trntis-
ntt important bulsness, nnd slnco which
time nothing has been henrd from him.
At tho time of Mr. Smith's depart
ure from Jiomo ho hud in
his poisoulou about on hundred dollars
In monoy. Not returning to his homo nf
tor a reasonable timo, his family boenmo
alarmed for his safety, nnd ono of his sons
went to Chicago to look for him. Arriv
ing In that city ho repaired to tho hotel nt
which It wns customary for his fathor to
stop, an J ascertained tlio following facts.
Tho old gcntlcmnn had caino to Chicago,
nnd ns on former occasions put up nt this
hetol. He had supper, lodging, and
breakfast nt tho house. At tho break
fast table, however, ho complained of feel
ing unwell, and left tlio houso. After leaving
tho hotel no one in nil thnt vast city could
bo found who lind seen or heard of him.
Falling in his efforts to gain nny further
information and filled with despair, Mr.
Smith, Jr. returned to his home nt Wash
ington. A dny or two nftcr nrrivlng nt
homo from Chicago, however, ho received
nn express pnekngo from tho old gentle-
,.rkj vwm tins city, mo pack
age contained $55, although tho marks on
indicnted thnt It should contain but
$10. Anotlior of tho sons of tho old gen
tleman, took tho first trnin south nnd
nrrivod hero on Friday morning last,
nnd nt onco bognn a through sovcrul of tho
city, but failed to gain nny knowledge
whatever of his father. He, too, failing
n his effotts to find tho old man, becomo
discouraged, nnd returned to his home.
On Saturday or Sundav, Mr. Ross, of
Washington, arrived in town, nnd hns, In
company with detective Arnold, been
endeavoring to work up tho case, but up
to this time hns met with nothing tonding
to give thorn nny cluo to tho old man's
M.T. Smith was ono of tho most
highly respoctod citizens of tho
community in which ho lived. He
was a heavy contracting builder, nnd at
tho tlmo of leaving homo was engaged
in tho erection of a thirty -thousand dollar
building at El Paso, and several other
buildings of less value in other localities
Ho was a mombor of the Presbvterian
church in good standing, and was looked
upon by all the community ns nn honest
and honorable gentleman. In ono of his
letters which ho enclosed in the express
package he spoko of it being better for his
family thnt ho should bo nwny from thorn,
although thoy were to nil appearances n,
happy and.contcntcd housohold. This fact,
taken in connection with the fact that
ho placed in the express packago
$53, and marked on the envelope, $10 has
lrl his friends to the belief that ho has
became deranged. Thero U no doubt that
he was in Cairo, but what has, becomo of
him, or where he has gone, is a hard qucs
tion to answer.
A reward of $100 Is offered for him
Hut, should he be taken up by any officer
or citizen, it U especially requested that
he be treated kindly, us his nbsenco from
homo i attributable to no crime. In
nnother place wo publish nn advertisement
giving n full description of the man.

Kdltov Cdh'o llitllcfini
I sco in your Sunday morning's Issue
an Item purporting to como from the
city authorities, requesting mo to state
whatbecanio of tho man I committed to
tlio city jnll on tho night of tho 14th Inst.,
which 1 will do.
I picked tip a man on tho cornor of
Twelfth stroot nnd Washington nvcnuo
nnd committed him to tho city jail. On
triday morning nt 0 o'clock, I went to tho
all for him, nnd when ho wnsbroucht out
I looked nt him nnd found that ho was
nfllcted with runture. anil wonrlnr.
a truss. His rlcht hand was badlv burned.
ndood so badly, that his fincors wero nil
drawn up. 1 lookod nt him, nnd asked
Mrs. McIIalo what tho charges on hint
wero, intending to pay thorn myself. Mrs.
-ncHalo looked nt tho poor ctipplo nnd snld,
n effect, it would not brnko nnv ono tin to
lei him go. bo I told him to leave nnd to
not bo caught in thnt condition again.
Jir. Jiollalo searched tho man at tho iail
as he can testify, nnd ns ho docs every man
i commit, i uo not soarch nny man until
I nrrivo at tho jail, for tho truth of which
1 nm willing to hnvo Mr. McIIalo
sworn. If tho gontlcmnn who jumped into
HIE Ul'LLKTls', supposing himself tho city
nutlioritios, had asked mo ho could have
nnrnotl Iho wholu history of tlio afl'uir.
I was really ashamed to bo seen conduct
ing such a Bpccimon of humanity along
tlio strcots to tho polico court. After
heard of tho great blow nnd btig-n-boo that
was being mndo out of the transaction, 1
visited tho mayor, city attorney, and n
number of aldermen, (all of whom I con
slder tho city authorities), nnd laid tho
case boforo them, nnd they wero satisfied.
I nm willing to have nny person sco Mr
McUalc, in regard to tho searching
of tho prisonor. Ho will stato that
tho man did not havo n cent
Tho poor dovll told us that ho hud hut
forty-live conts when ho camo to town
nnd that ho got "grub nnd whiskv" with
W. II. RonERTSON
Tho Item thnt hns stirred up officer
Robertson's bilo wns simply an inquiry as
to what had been done with tho man above
referred to. So far ns tho enso of this poor
cripple is concerned, it is probably ns well
that ho wns turnod loose nnd tho city saved
tho expenso of feeding hint ; but tho manner
in which it wns dono is what is objected to
It is n bad precedent, and ono which should
not bo permitted to occur a secend timo,
If officer Robertson had taken his pris
onor beforo n magistrato nnd ho had
thcro been liberated, thcro would hav
been no necessity for this statement, nnd
tho unpleasant feeling that has grown out
of the affair would hnvo been avoided
THE FIRE YESTERDAY.
TWO IJWELLINOSON TWENTY-FIRST STREET
At about ten o'clock yesterday morning
a firo broko outjn n small cottage houso
on Twenty-r irst between Poplar 6troet
nnd nshington nvcnuo, occupied by Mr
juun aullivan, an employer nt the Illinois
Central railroad depot. Tho firo compa
nies arrived nt tho scene of tho
firo ns soon ns tho bad condition of tho
roads would permit. Tho Hibernians
wero on tho ground first and immediately
wont to work, doing good service. Tlio
little Arab, and tho Rough nnd Ready's
with their largo inachino soon followed,
nnd commenced plnylr.g on tho fire.
Howcvor, tho flames made great headway,
and in a few minutes communicated to the
residonco of Mr. Long, which stood
The firo seems to havo originated from
n iJotVctlon lluo in tho kitchen of Mr. Sul
-Mr, Sullivan's houso was completely
uosiroyeci, while that ownod by Mr. Long
wns saved, though in a badly damaged
condition. Mr. S.( wo are told, had insur
nnco on his house in tho sum of $.500,
which will about cover his loss on tho
building. Mr. Long, wo believe, lind no
insurance whatever, nnd his loss will not
