parly concorned. In speaking of tbe twit
wherein one bills was charged with dis
posing of a "long-haired, buTy-Ullud
colt," tbo property of P. M. D laney, wo
used, in de.igoatlng the defendant Ellis,
tho initials "T B ," instead ot "T. J."
thus involving Capt. T. B. Ellli, of tho
Arlington House. We p-ntet that we
bad no thought of Capt. Ellis at tho time
ot writing, else wo undoubtedly should
htvo added "not tho proprietor ol the
Arlington House." Capt Ellis has lived
many years in Cairo, nnd is ono of tbe
last men In tbo oity that is likely to stand
as defendant in a esse like that of tbe
People vs. T. J. Ellis. Wo are quite suro,
furthermore, tbat tboso who know him
did not aseciato bis name with tbe dis
