Tin: Wkatiiek. The weather yester-
tenlay was as dlagreeable as it could
be Miowy, rainy, blustery, cold and
gloomy. We very much fear that, it It
was of like character above us on the
river, we will have poured down upon us
high waters and many ol them.
In Town. Mr. A. J. Alden, of the
Anna Union, was lu the city yesterday.
We had the pleasure of meeting him.
Mr. Alden publMn-s one of the lici pa
pers of Southern Illinois. The marks ot
is able pen may be seen lu everv issue
ol It.
Liki: Tiikm. Whatever Mesfrf. Searls
and Cauda do has about it tho flavor of
sharpness. The characteristic ot the
men cropped out in thu little bill thev
had circulated, cullhi' the meeting that
wa held last night. They announced
the purpose ol the meeting to lie "lo dl-
c.u-s the issuci ol the New f.evec against
the Narrow Gauge railroad." when the
purpoe was to permit the narrow gauge
road to make a ktirceful assault upon
the new levre.

we are determined to work at starvation

because starving Is our idrong point.

1Ii:i.v Oit. There ought to b fomo
xplauntion. lu u quiet way, Mr. Ilely,
who was in charge of tho new levee work,
was dl-cliarged Ihu other day, and the
work put lu chargu of William Bagnell.
a brother of the contractor who, by tho
mayor s kindly Interference, got out of
hU contract. W ililatn is n good man and
a good workman, but so is John, and It
wasn't right In Wright to say to him,
without notice: Yon are oil'; get out."
Wo don't moan to grumble, hut, by Jupi
ter, we aro anxious tu have the levee con
structed hi an unobjectionable manner
put up so that It will stay, and wo would
prcter an engineer, who Is a citizen, in
charge of the work, to a gentleman, good
mini though ho may he, who has no In
terest In tho city. We know John Ilely
Is n good levcp-bnllder, and prefer him tn
William Bagnell ; but If there Is any good
reaion why we should not have Italy, let
us have Charley Tlmipp.

eick' was going to make u statement.
iVu nlaiteii to Mr. Hart well's olllee. and
on Ihu way met Sherill Norris. and asked
nun lo go wllh u-,. We then went to Ids
cell, unit I. milium said: "Now Sun,
su hau comu and waul you to iiiakua

Mu-iek was not a murderer, but tint he
ha I been drawn Into the affair through
bad company and whisky, llu said
lie had bei u acquainted with Mu!ck u
long time; thai hu was a good friend ot
Mn-k'k's uud would put Ids hand lu his
pocket ami let liiiu have Ids last dollar.
I.aiidruin s.ud lie wanted Mu-ick to tell
the truth, and not to Implicate uu inno

it hu told all he knew he would have. to
impliciie some of Njrris' relatives. Nor

let thu truth come out. Mn-ii'k then Maid
if he told Hie truth ilu-y would kill lit in

back lu the evening, mid thu Jailer
brought in a light. Muslch asked mu If
"they hail gouu alter the boys," nnd
asked me If ihey werj going to "bring
them in here."I told hhn 1 guessed they
would, when he said "l can't see them;
I want the money promised me, I want
to leave belore they come in." I replied,
S un. vou will have to stay. They will
imi put Hi.' hoys in with you; but you
will have to go befor.' the court, and
before the grand Jury and tell what you

God, I can't dn that ; I want to leave."
I replied that lie couldn't think of leaving,
I tint hu would have to stay, that he
would not hu harmed.
Is an open question. Mr. William Coin-
mliig. ol Eldorado. Saline county, sworo
he once arrested Mustek on that charge.
Coinmings was put on the stand and tes
tified that In ISC I ho received orders from
theprovoit marshal nt Caseyvllle, Ken
tucky, to nrre-t Mtislck; that Mttslck was
charged with Mug u "guarllla;" that
he went altir Mtislck and got on
his track at the house of a man
named Weaver, at Spring Garden, Jeffer
son county. Cummliigs was not smart
enough to keep his business to himself
mid told Weaver what hu wanted. Wea
ver was a Irtetid of Musick's anil "bam
boozled" Cutumlugs till Sam got away,
and got us far ns Salem before Csmml.igs
overtook lilin. On his way buck with
Mustek, Conunlugs arrested Weaver, not
that he had auv clmrgo against hhn, but
bec.msM thu old man had "lied to him."
Mustek was taken back to Kentucky, and
then tukuu toLoiilsvllliuind Camp Chase,
Ohio, where ho was held ns a prisoner of
war. Thu old man Weaver, was re
leased after lite valiant home-guard Com
miugs had "put lilu1 to some trouble."
Coinmings must have been n "loll" man
during the war. He ought to have a
post olllee.
Sheriff Nun Is was put on thu stand
again, and testilled as to what occurred
In tlm Jail when Laiidriim, Deiinlson and
Norris went to hear Musick's itatemetit.
Snerlfl Norris' version of what took plnce
at that Interview h (ubiiantlally the lame
ai sworn to by Mr. Dcnnhon.
Mr. John Dowcll, a worthy citizen of
Williamson county, and n member of the
last grand Jury bf that county, was put
on Hie stand, but nothing of Interest was
made known through him.
