Another ut tempt was made by uur-

Dunning, corner of Ninth und Walnut
streets, on Tuesday night. Mrs. Dun-
ning was awakened by thu wind and
noie ot the. heavy storm of that night,
and detected a man crouching down
behind a chair in her sleepingapartmeiit.
She gave a loud scream, which had the
effect of searing the burglar so badly
that he leaned over the banister of the
portico down into the yard and escaped.
Dr. Dunning opened his eyes just in
time to see the form of the intruder going
out of the window. He lired at him
with his revolver, but fulled to hit his
mark. Mrs. Dunning described tho thiel
as being a very short, thick set man,
attired is a suit ot brown clothes, with

THE 1-OI.LOWINii INFORMATION:
There are three actions pending against
the county and two onanist the citv
upon interest coupons of railroad aid
bonds Issued to the Cairo atul Vlncennes
and Cairo and St. Louis railroads in W2
to aid iu the construction of those roads;
and two mandamus suits one against
tho "board of county commissioners,"
and one against the "mayor and com
mon council of the city ot Cairo" the
object or which ig to
compel the levying ol a
special tax to pay certain judgments re
covered upon coupons hi untUfmdtd suits
at lust Janiiary;tcrui of the I'mtcd States
All these caes eamo up before the
court la-t week und were heard bclore
Judges Drumtnond and Treat, the
county and city being represented by Mr.
Gilbert, and the Applcton National Bank
of Massachusetts, plaintiff in all the suits,
by Messrs. Schol' s X .Mather ot Spring
TUB FOLLOW ISd RtSt'I.TS:
As respects the suits upon coupons : in
oat the service was quashed and case
continued ; hi hco the cases were con
tinued because of tailure to tile copies of
the coupons sued on ; and the remaining
two cases were submitted on demurrer
to declarations, the court In its opin
ion delivered by Judge Drum-
ruond, giving its decision in favor of the
county and city and sustaining the demur-
rer on tlio ground that :
Pirst In all suits upon coupons, issued
since the adoption ol our prcser.t consti
tution, it was necessary for the party
alleging the validity of the coupons to
show and prove that their issuance was
authorized !; a iv.'e nf the ptoji'c had in
piirsu'tiu't of law.
Second-That the law did not author
ize a city or county to make Us coupons
payable outside of the state, and although
the coupons in question were payable iu
New York and a demand
had been made there, yet
the city or county was not in default
unless the plaintiff stated in his declara
tion and proved tha' he had demanded
payment, and payment had been retuscd,
ut thu city and cuunly treasury, which hud
not been done.
This decision virtually decides, as we
understand Mr. Gilbert, all the present
suits upon coupons.
IN FAVUH OF THE COUNTY AND CITY.
In the two mandamus eases the court
over ruled Mr. Gilbert's motion toquiish
the service upon the county board and
mayor uml council. ami al
lowed the delciidants len
M.vs ' lo plead. Mr Gilbert
ha now tiled demurrers to the pi-tiiiomt
and expri'S-es himsell us contl lent iii his
ability to detent these suits, when Hll
argument shall be had upon the demurrer-,
which will probably lake ulace in xt
week bclore Judges Drumniond and

We tnake n0 pretentions to legal
know ledge, but the
KUSfLT OF TIIK CONTEST
thus far taken In connection with tho
fact that upon a bill filed in our circuit
court here and objections also In our
county court, Mr. Gilbert has obtained
from Judge Baker ol the circuit court an
injunction restraining the collection of
the railroad interest tax upon personal
property, und has, in tho county court,
defeated and saved to the tax payers tho
railroad Interest tax upon real estate,
ought to all'orJ encouragement to our
ami show the wisdom ot our city and
county authorities, as well as the tax
payers' association, in securing tho serv
ices of Messrs. Green & Gilbert. We
understand that many holders of these
bonds now oiler them
AT FIFTY CENTS OF TIlKIIt FAR VAl.l'E,
and we have heard of one offer of $30,000
ut 30c. on tho dollar. Weareot the
opinion that when the "bloated bond
holders" learn that our municipal author
ities are determined to light these rail
road aid bonds to the bitter end with a
seeming prospect ot success ; and that
our county and city Indebtedness Is such
that It will be an Utter Impossibility for
us to pay it, except upon a fair

they will in their own interest, be de
posed to do tho lair thing. Mr. Gil
bert is, It wo are not mistaken, of the
opinion that tho Cairo and Vlncennes
railroad donation bonds cau be defeated,
and while he expressed no decided
opinion In regard to other bonds ho
. ii. mm i waon'i aw
seemed to think that the Indebtedness
having accrued slnco the adop
tion of our new constitution
the constlutlonal limit of taxation wa
uch that the municipal authorities could
successfully resist all efforts at fpcclal
taxation by mandamus, il they wero so
disposed; and wo veuttiro to suggest that
they will be so disposed, inasmuch as
the authorities not only issued these
bonds, but the. holders of thtm received
them, upon the

Of 18(10. Under that law tho recipients
