THE MURDERER HARRISON.
INTERVIEW WITH A 1IUI.I.ETIN UK PORTER
VERY LITTLE TO SAY SORRY, 1IUT
CAN'T HELP IT.
Tho murdoror of Joo Swoboda, William
Harrison, is well-known In Cairo. Ho
has for a long tlmo been bar-tender In tho
DelmonlcO saloon, Commercial avenue,
and -has tho reputation of n quarrelsome
and dangerous person. Ho Is small of
stature, oyes of light gray, light lmlr nnd
comploxlon, with a doubtful kind of expres
sion altogether indescribable. Although
n married man, with ono child, ho has
been for long tlmo a constant frequenter
of bawdy houses, and of lato has been in
fatuated by tho wiles of Grnco Windsor's
not very prepossessing sister. His friends
havo concluded to rest his dcfeiiao on tho
plea of insanity, but cannot, probably,
iiiako it good, slnco ho has novcr been
suspected of any lack of good sense.
Ycstcrdny morning tho representative
of The Bulletin visited the county jail,
whero Harrison is confined, nnd whs al
lowed by Jailer Fitzgerald to Interview
Our reporter found him In a coll on tho
west side with two other prisoners. Ho
was calm, and guarded in his conversa
tion, having doubtlessly profited by the
advice of his counsel, Mr. D. T. Lincgar,
and his friend Mr. Henry Winter, who
had just left him. After hand-shaking
the following conversation ensued :
Reporter God mornlnir, Billy.

Harrison roplied : "I'll bo G d

calling him soveral times a d d s n

roso to their feet, and passed into tho hall,
Harrison following Swoboda still abusing
him, and Swobodn tolling him that ho did
not want to quarrel. Ida Windsor, tho
causo of tho tragedy, then ran out of tho

caught Swoboda by tho coat collar, and

without process of law had confined her
in jail. In doing this duty Line,
declared f,ich outrages must bo stopped

fact ho was commenting upon. The
mayor, In his placid manner, asked
Mr. Robertson if ho did not know ho

left tho matter. Maybo if it had been nny
other officer, Mr. Lansdcn would have sus

informed by City Attorney Pope), Mr.
Robertson has given His Honor notice that
if ho is not rctninoJ upon tho force, ho
will bo compolled to go back on the repub

this being tho caso, Mayor Lansdcn would
not daro jeopardize tho chances of Grant

The weather was chungeble, and toward

Alderman Swoyne must insist that It
Is wrong in tho city to repair tho loveo
whero it lias been washed into a danger
ous condition by tho Tenth street sower.
Ho believes tho Trustees of tho Properly
should bo compelled to mako the repara
tion nt their own proper expenso. Ue
has nut yet enlightened us as to how the
compulsion is to bo applied. Suppnso tlio
Trustees woro to sny to the city : " Re'
pair tho levees yourself. Wo havo only u
common Interest hero with other property
holders, and if thoy aro willing to
stand tho destruction of their prop
erty, wo nro too." What could wo do
about it 7 It may bo said: "Why,
these Trustees agreed to build and
maintain about tho city n pormancnt
lovoe, nnd if thoy don't do so thoy nro ro
sponslblo at law." Exactly ; but thoy aro
not responsible until tho damago is dono,
and If tliolr fault shall wipo out tho value
of their property ut the tlmo it Inflicts tlio
darnngo on us of what valuo would a judg
mcnt against them bo ? Does Mr. Swttyno
sco the tho point; nnd won't it soon occur
tothosowlm'nro always persisting in having
a fight with tho Trustees that tho better
way for both tho city und
the Trustees Is to g"t on
peaceably together' Wo agrco with Mr.
Swayuo und -Mr. Wilson und Mr. Coinings,
und tho othor vory active bolligorcnt nnti
monopolist citizens, that Cairo wc.uld have
been fortunuto to-dny If its site had been
on a lull, against which tho floods of tho
rivor could not have provailod, which
fact would havo ronderod n monopoly un
necessary to thu preparation of the silo for
human habitation nnd havo relieved us
of tho infliction of trustees who won't stir
rendor their trust without a consideration;
hut, then, tho site of Cnln is not a hill
but a pieco of ground over which for
inerly two rivers run, and to redocm which
required capital and madu a monopoly
of tho ground a iiocosslty, It would ho n
high compliment to tho unselfishness of
human naturo If tho Property woro to say
to Cairo, tako all wo havo without monoy
and without price, but tho Proporty won't
and wo must tharcforo tako things ns wo
find thorn, nnd instead of fighting tho
monopoly, without a chnnco of success, on
