Ono of tho sadctt stories wo have

ing a short distance above this city. Mr

Worsham, second clerk of the ill-fated
steamer wero father nnd son, nnd both lost
thoir lives by tho explosion.
Tho stcrtrtcr II. M. Shriove,
of which boat ' Mr. Richard AVorsham,
another son of Mr. II. Worsham, is second
clerk, was tho llrst boat to come down the
river after the disaster. On reaching tho
scone of the disaster, tho work of search
ing for the doaa was commenced, and tho
first body found was that of Mr. Goo.

The Paducah 'Kenluckian,' of Thurs
day, contains tho item below pub
lished. Wo havo been on tho lookout
for tbo parties referred to but up to tho
prcsont writing havo hoard nothing of
thorn. Tho 'Kentur-kian' says :
On a recont trip of tho Idlowild, a man
by tho namo of Davis alias O. W. Briggs,
got on board that boat at Evantvillo, with
a woman named Nelly Brown, who was
supposed to be bis wife. Tho two had
been oneaged in tho dollar store business
at Mt. Vernon, Indiana. On tho way
down tho pair got off at Elizabethtown, or
at some other point. It seems that Brlggs
had a wife in Iowa. She started in soarch
of her truant husband and got on his trail
at Evantvillc, and taking boat thcro wen',
in pursuit of him. Arriving at Cairo sho
touna mat no naa not arrivca, ana Hav
ing reason to believe that ho and his other
wife would be down on tho Idlowild, she
got on board tho Arkansas Belle, nnd
when she mot the Idlowild, a short dis
tance above here, tho Iowa wifo
was transferred to that boat. Tho meet
ing of tho husband, and wives numbers
one and two is represented as having beon
very animated, isotn women claimed the
man, and tho amount of qunrelling, crim
ination and recrimination which took place
ore tho boat reached this port was huge.
" Holl has no fury liko a woman vcorncd,"
dlnd't begin to cover this case, and a gen
eral killing might have occurred but for
tho interferonco of outsiders. ,
When tho boat arrived hore, Nelly
Brown went to the hotol, tho Iowa wife
remained on board tbo Idlowild, and the
husband took up his quarters on tho Bod-
mann. correspondence was unany opened
and a triangular fight ensued on pa
fier. The Iowa female went off with her
iiiaband on tho Idlowild to Cairo, nnd

HIS HONOR AND THE POLICE.
At tho council meeting, Thursday, night,
while the resolution of Councilman Tay
lor, instructing the mayor (o draft rules
for tho govornmonl of tbo pollco force
was under discussion, His Honor took oc
casion' to any such rules would bo usolofs
because they coutd not be made, effective
In thoir application, such a small forco at
Cairo's! and, also,' tlint, although there
was a general complaint of thelnefflclency
of his policemen, he could find nobody
who would prefer charges against cithor of
them, nnd, upon th'o whole, ho dldr.'t know
that ho could do anything' to mako the
forco more activo, etc. The council was
not of tho mayor's opinion. It adopted
Councilman Taylor's resolution .
We would beg lcavo to suggest lo
Mayor Lansden that thcro arc certain
rule whiohhe might proscribe to tho
pollco forco, and, by a littlo vigilance on
his own part, mako effective.
One good rule would be a broad asser
tion of.tbe.fact that.it is highly Improper,
if not wrong, in police constables to visit
saloons while on duty, and, wltii legs ele
vated at an angle of forly-flvo degrees,
complacently conlemplato tho progress of
the amusing game of "pitch," drinking a
flowing bowl at tho expenso of tho loser,
every time a gnmo terminate'. Tho
mayor might set forth In this rule, that
the offento of loafing about saloons would
be less objectionable If tbo policeman did
not sit down, and elevate hit feat, and If
he occasionally ahould Indulgo in beer at
his own expense. Wo do not insist on
this rule. It might be highly improper
In a reform municipal government, but in
any other kind of a municipal government
it would be loudly and persistently
Another rule wo should suggest, if wo
wero allowed to approach tho throne,
would be, that it would bo esteemed by the
mayor an offense, to bo punished by re
moval from the force, in nnypollceman to
go to sleep whilo on duty to take his
position under tbo awning of any grocery
store and while away tho hours of tho
night in sleep nnd dreams. The rulo
might contain tho proviso, that a police
man might sleep on tho awning without
awakening the indignation of tho execu
tive officer of the city, but that nil kinds
cfslcop indulged in mirfersuch nwnlng
would be followed by swift nnd terrible
Ono othor rulo wo would nlso carofully
submit, but beg to say, in advance, that wo
mean no offenso to tho kind-hearted po
licemen, who, in tno cause ot social re
form, indulgo in tho laudablo effort to
drag up to their own level of high moral
ity tho fallen women of tho citv. We
would suggest, that a good rule, eomewhnt
demanded by tho present habits of tho re
formatory pollco, would bo a prohibition
of tho too frequent visits
of the guardians of tho public morals to
tbo bawdy houses of tho city. Wo nro not
of the straight-Jacket reformers, and would
not seo anything highly improper in, say
a weekly visit of a policoman to each of
the bawdy houses of the city, but wo sub.
mit that nightly visits or oven trl-weokly
visits aro a littlo too much in reform po
licemen. Thoir object as has been sug.
gestod by Reformer Lincgar, to induco
the weak sisters to return to tho paths of
virtue, but, with tho eminent roformor
mentioned, wo bellovo thoy should not, as
wo regret to say thoy do, corry on thoir
missionary labors with levity. It is n
work which should bo dono with hymns
nnd prayer. Ono of tho clauses of tho
rulo wo havo suggested should tbcrcforo
pr.ovido that any policeman, upon enter
ing such a house, should first sing tho
"Wretch that I am
To Grace unknown,"
and then pray for the reformation of the
unfortunates of the houso; after which,
tbo rule might state, it would bo "just tho
thing" in policemen to securo tho services
of City Attorney Pope to procure the
prosenco of tbo bnwds before Judge Bross,
who should end up nil his judgments
against them with the rofrnin : "And may
tho Lord havo mercy on your souls, nnd
tho reformatory police on your pockets I"
These, nnd other rulos wo might sug
gest, could bo onforcod, if the mayor
would mako the effort; but,, if ho will not,
tho demoralization of tho forco will con
tinue nnd bo confirmed. The mayor may
wait for informers all his life, and thoy
will not cheer his anxious vision.- Tho
peoplo look to him, and they will hold
him responsible for tho efficiency of his
polico constables. It may bo said, that
Chief Myers should attend to these mat
ters, but what can Myers do if the mayor
docs not back him, if ho allows Myers'
complaints to enter ono ear and depart
without delay from tho other? And if
Myers don't do what bo should do, or does
what ho should not do, who but tho
mayor should correct tho ovil? Thcro Is no
man who will bo more active, vigilant nnd
dutiful than Myers if he knows these quali
ties nro in demand. Tho truth is tho
mayor it to blamo for tho shortcomings
of tho policemen of tho city. Ho appears
to bo utterly helpless to bring &ny good
out of tho Nazarethcan badness of our con
stnbulatory confusion. Ho has no sugges
tions to -mako no reforms to advocate
Ho Is a drlftor ; and whilo tho current is
smooth floats along very placidly, cheer
ing tho eyes of his frionds, but when tho
current becomes milled a little, or tho
channel difficult, ho can do nothing but
drift. His oars aro too short
to bo usod to any advantage, and
if ho has a ruddor he does not know how
to uso it. This fact has bocomo painfully
manifest sinco his ro-cloctlon. Last year,
ho mado somo effort to roform abuses, but
this year ho not only makes no such effort,
but, as ho did not do last year, resists such
efforts by Interposing woak objections to
them, and replying to suggostod direc
tions of tho council, "I can't ; ploaso don't,
ask mo." Ho Is, wo take it, a lineal descqn
dent of Ton ny eon's Lotus Eaters, who
wcro pained by even tho thought of
A nimble tlxpenco rather than a slow
