FRIDAY EVENING JANUARY 8, 1869.
JOHN H. OCERLY & CO.-
OFFICIAL I'At'KH OF COUNTVAXI) CITY
COURT OF COMMON PLEAS.
A, hill to repeal tlio law which crcntod tho
Cairo court of common pleas has already
been laid heforo tho legiHlnturo. Tho citi
zens of Cuiro who ndvocato this hill nro
cither influenced by prejudice ngnliut its
present presiding ofilcor or hhvo not ,'iTcrf
to tho subject much consideration, nnd hno
jumped to Improiier conclusions. If
prejudieo ngnliut judgo Mulkcy Is at tho hot
torn of tho movement, then political enemies
of tliu democrncy fashioned its proportions
and gavo to it vitality, not in tho interests of
tho city, hut in compliance- with tho prompt
ings of partisan spite born of tho meanest
hind of vindictivenns". Judgo Mulkoy is a
juri:tof eminent abilities. He has few su
periors on the bunch of Illinois. Learned in
tlio law, with a pride In tho dignity of his
I'rtf ion, he hring4 to tho rotation of intri
cate legal questions a mind made powerful by
rut 4n nn 1 carefully cultured by assiduous
application to the duties of his calling and
I y closf study of tijo law. A presiding offi
cer of ability, ho is Indefatigable, and in his
court dispatches business rapidly, requiring
t f the members of the bar tho most diligent
application to their dutlos. "Wo do not over
step the truth when we say lie nlwuys has
dispatched more business in one week than
Judgo Onlcy ever did In any two weeks dur
ing tho tirnu Unit gentleman was- on tho
bench
Let us now tnko this fact and use it in an
swer to those citizens who belie vu or pretend
t j.belltvo that the ends of economy would bo
Hiljcrvod by abolishing tho.couxt of common
pleas. Tli ero Is in Cairo a certuin amount of
l( business to bo dono. If it is not dyne
in tho common pleas court it must bodoiQ in
the circuit court, and if It takes twico us long
to d it In the circuit cmirt n to tlo It (n tho
crmnU'H ple.n court It will con twice as
much ; since it Is u fact that can bo established
Lcyc nd question that tho machinery of tho
firrM.. imed court is not loss Intricate than
the machinery of tho common pleas, and its J
cfljccrs havo never been known to work for
le i wages. It therefore follows, thut where
as t' city of Cairo jtnys ilvu-eighths of all
tho taxis collected in Aloxnndur county, tho
nbclitljn of the court of common pleas will
incrcao tho umoiint of taxes to bo paid by
Cairo to sustain tlio county, unless a judgo
can be obtained for the circuit who can dis
patch L.H.iiO'ij at rapidly as judge Mulkey;
nud this we boliovu will not bo done.
Hut tho proportion that the abolition of
tho Common pleas will bo a movoment in tho
direction of economy can lj met and shat
tered into pieces in many dlUerc-nt ways. Let
tit look at it a moment, nnd nppjy to It tho
test of figure, which sometimes lie, but in
this Instance speitk an unvarnished truth,
rigiiisablo n genuine at n glance. '.Tho
circuit Court meets every four months. If
wo lr 1 n i common pleas court to meet in tho
interval, or to bo called in special session at
anv Utile, tho prisoners in tho jail would on
ly Ik tried quarterly. Suw the avorago num
ber of pnonori is llfjeun. Tlio averago cost
tf k' oping oach prisoner is ouo dollar per
tiny. There is e.iy ninety-ono days in three
1 uritl.j. This gives ninety-ono dollars for
each prisoner each quarter, n total for the
II ft een prisonors of thirtcon hundred and
mty-llvo dollars. With tho common pleas
r in th-jr.il can be kept empty. It convenes
nl -it four weeks after tho circuit court ad
j -.irn!, nnd if in the interval, as at present,
tho jail becomes full, a special term can bo
call' J and tho prisoners dittoed of. Now,
how much does tlio common pleas cost?
Eight linllllli, nt two dollnrsjand fifty cents
pr r day, for say ten days of tho term, two
hundred dolln's; tweuty-thrco grand Jurors,
at t no dollar and fifty cents per day, .for six
days, two hundred and soven dollars; twenty
four petit Juror?, ten days, throo hundred and
sixty dollars. The total cost, then, is: seven
Uundred uud sixty-ilvo dollars ; and uuy ono
who will go to the trottblo of ciphering to
tho end will find that in this one item of pris
oners nlono nearly six hundred dollars nro
saved every quarter j or, in other words,
nearly six hundred dollars more would be
paid out to maintain tlio prisonors in tlio
countviiiil than would be expended in de
fraying tho expenses of tiio common pleas
court.
"Wo have not spoken of the convenience to
tho people of tho city resulting from tills
court. Tho blind can see this; and to ropoat
what miL'hl be said on this subject would bo
telling over u more than twico told talc. Add
ing that tho peoplo will regret their hasty ac
tion in ndvlsing tho abolition of judgo Altil
key's court, and in tho hopo thut tlio city
council may reconsider its hasty action in tlio
nrcmics. wu now dismiss tho eubloct from
further consideration.
I'RIMARy'eI.ECTIONS.
Tho democrats of Cairo, last spring, decided
that thoy would mako nominations for tho
municipal offices by tlio primary election ays
tern. As a mattor of course their order stands
in full forco until It is by them revoked, nud
tho nominations for city offieos this year will
therefore bo miulo nt primary elections. Tlio

THE CAIRO AND ST. LOVISRAILROAD.
Tho success of tho Cairo and St. Louis rail
road enterprise i beyond nil doubt 'fissured,

forty votes for tho subscription nnd only
eight against it.

(From the Htite Itegiitcr.J
Tho nomination by tho democratic patty
of tho hon. Newton It. Casey as their candi
date for speaker of tho house, Is an exceeding
ly just compliment to a talented nnd courte
ous gentleman. Ho is one of tho few legis
tors who has boon returned to his scat in tho
house. A Jiatlvo of Illinois, tho promise of
talent nnd usefulness which ho early gavo has
been abundantly realized. Few members
nro equally skilled In parliamentary rules,
his experience and observation having given
him opportunities for exercising tho powers
of a discriminating mind with rcmnrknblo ac
umen. Long since wo predicted for him dis
tinction uml general appreciation. It is
pleasant to k now that our judgment has bceu
littlo loss thnn prophotic, for few men enjoy
n better reputation amongst all sorU of peo
ple. Our representative, wo nro glad to learn, is
properly appreciated away from his homo.
Tho high praise of tho 'Register', nnd his
nomination for speaker by hU party friends
of the house, nro Itnndsomo feathers for his
political cap, and ho will wear them with bo
coming modesty.
