The Misotiri 'Doinocrat', of yostcr
dny morning, contains an account of a
cloo escape from a tnllroad accident, on
tho "Short Lino," in which several Cairo
people woro interested. Fivo "miles beyond
Carbondalc, tha sleeping car became un
coupled, mid a freight train ran into it.
Morgan was the conductor, and when ho
discovored his train leaving tho sleeper,
turned back his train at once. Ho knew
the northward .bound freight was close bo
hind. Ho got back in timo to awaken the
looping passengers, who got out of tho
endangered car. Tho 'Democrat' says :
Mr. Jutvutt Wilcox iVcnl out like n flying
lrape7.3 perforator, alighting in a pond,
and going kurchug up to his neck in mud
and water. Others nllghtcd on nil-fours,
and nil got out before tho trnln struck tho
car. The crash of tlio collision was terri
bios The locomotive of tho freight train
was crushed, the sleeping-car reduced to
splinter, and two of the passenger coache
badly biimagwd. Luckily none of tlio
passenger were seriously Injured. If
they had remained a moment longer in Iho
sleeping car half of them would undoubt
edly have been killed or crippled forJife.
Mr. Wilcox c-caped witli a slight contus

Emma Collir.s,n girl not more than six

would bo confined In tho calaboose for a

She was arrested by Olllcor Martin.

Tho board of aldormcn liavo come to
tho conclusion that, to givo efficiency to
the police force of tho city, a sergeant of
police should bo nppointcd to boss tho
night ollicers, nnd that ono of tho boys
must ho designated to do duty in tho day
lime, the chief to lmvo control overall and
occasionally call around nt night to seo
that tho old thing is working smoothly.
Wo aro inclined to beliovo tho proposed
now plan will work very woll; and it
surely will if, in some way, a littlo vim
could bo injected into n few of tlio mom

THE CAIRO LIBERAL CONVENTION.
Wo publish clsowhoro lu Tun Dullk
tin a call for it Liberal Ropublioaii-Dcm-ocrntlc
convention of this congressional
district, to beheld in this city on tho 2Stli.
Tho call is under tho signature of " Stulo
Exccullvo Com., " by L. H. Dyrnc, sec
rot.'kry. How was this " Exccullvo Com."
constituted ?who appointed it? by
what authority V nnd, particularly, who
gavo the committee tho right lo call tho
democrats of this district Into convention ?
nroquostlon wo cannot answer, nnd for re
plies to which wo shall probally bo com
pelled to seek L. II. Byrne, whoever nnd
whorovet ho may bo. Tho democrats of
this district, if wo understand their posi
tion, want nothing to do with tho Ilbornl
republicans, doslro to not nlllllato willi
them In nny way, to not in any degrco In
flueiico their action, until they liavo comu
out from among tho radicals, nnd, declaring
war, rnlso their standard, inscribe upon it
their principles nnd placo it in thu hands of
tho man they wish to luud them to battle.
Then tho democrats will consult
together and delornilno whether
they can light under tho 1 i Loral standard
and follow tho liberal lenders. If tho
decision is in tho nllirmntlve, tho dem
ocratic army will becomo n part of the
liberal forco, mid our leaders will havo
something to say about tho plan of cam
paign; but tho democrats will bo unwi
It they shall havo anything lo do with Iho
liberal republicans until nil these steps,
each in its order, lmvo been taken. Wo
therefore beliovo tho democrats of this
district should havo nothing to do with
tlio Dyrne convention nnd should carefully
remain absent from It. If the liberals
aro not numerous enough to hold a con
vention of their own, it will not pay tlio
democrats to surrender to tholii. If they
are numerous enough to innko a respecta
ble showing, let them demonstrate the
fact, act wisely, anl show their colors
without fear. Such a conve.tlon would
have a good effect, but a bogus liberal con
vention, so mixed tho public would bo un
able to tell whether it was tho llesh of
democracy or fish of liberalism would do
more harm than good and put Into the
hands of the radicals a club they might
tiso ton good advantage in beating nut the
brain of tlio coalition.
