lathe face of such illustrious exam
ples as St. Louis presents, Cairo need not
feel in the least disheartened becauso, on
account of necessary extraordinary expen
ditures, she has been compelled to anticip
ate her revenue a little during the last year
or two. Only a few days ago St. Louis
made arrangements with tho' Fourth Na
tional bank of that city, for such tempor
ary loans as the city may require from time
time in anticipation of the revenue of 1883,
not to exceed . $400,000 iu the aggregate.
Notes will be issued and dated as the
money Is needed and payable on or before

The case of the Wabash railroad com-
pauy against the people, in which the tax
leveo against the property of thu road for
1882 is contested on the ground that said
property is properly and under tho law
a part of the company's right-of-way, was
to t avo been heard before County Judge
Robinson yesterday. But it assumed a
more seriout phase, in that the city of Cairo
was represented by Counsellor Gilbert who
desired to be beard in the case on behalf of
the city. Thus the case has assumed a tri
angular form and three attorneys appear in
it. Counsellor Gilbert for the city, Mr. S.
P. Wheeler for the railroad cmp any, and
Mr. George W. Hendricks (whom the court
has appointed to act as states attorney at
its present session) for the county. It was
decided yesterday that the attorney's should
agree upon some day next week on w hich
to present their several Bides of the case
to the court. Nothing of importance was
done by tho court yesterday.
Some days ago we published a synop
sis of a report made to the city conncil by
Comptroller Howley, in which it appeared
that the total income from all sources dur
ing'the last fiscal year amounted to about
$29,000 and that the amount needed for
the known general expenditures of the city
during the present fiscal year would reach
about $55,000. This statement created the
mpression among some, that the city's
necessary expenditures would exceed the in
come by about $25,000, which is not the
case. The fact of the matter is, that the
comptroller's repot t embraced only the
amount received before the 30th ot April,
and that since then between fifteen snd
twenty thousand dollars was creditod to the
ciiy on account of last year's collections,
and more is still to come. All of which,
when fully understood, will prove that the
city's income is equal to its expenditures.
It is apparent, and has been so through
all the Argus' comments upon the Linegar
hills, that Mr. Potter and thoso who concur
with him in the matter, have attached con
siderably more importance to said bills
than they merit and have transformed them
ioto hidious scare-crows to frighten the
people generally. If .the passage of the
hills had had any paralyizing effect upon
this city, it has jeen aggravated, if not pro
duced, by the comments of a wildly specu
lative nature indulged in from time to time
by the Argus. The Argus has assumed
that the bills give the city council much
more power than it had before and that the
city couucil will forthwith use this power to
its fullest extent. And trom these assumed
premises It has reasoned extravagantly, an
ticipating gigantic schemes of improve
ment or changes all over the city, which
would bankrupt two-thirds of the property
holders. It has built up hidious Btraw
monsters, as it were, to terrify tho people,
and then knocked them down again for its
own amusement and, perhaps, the relief of
a few lookers-on whom it succeeded in
alarming by its wild flights of fancy. The
council alwayB had the power to raise the
grade of the city to a level with the levees,
or any other level, and to order improvements
made accordingly by special assessment;
hut citizons intending to build were not
heretofore detained from doing so in (ear
or in hope that the council would do such a
thing. Why there should bo any fear on
this score now, and why such fear should
be the result of the passage of Mr. Linegar's
bills which, if anything, would only make
the expense of any improvements or chan
ges, such as spoken of, easier to bear for the
the property holders, is certainly a problem
which, toourmind, can only be explained on
the hypothesis that such fear is the result of
I wrong conception of tho meaning of said
bills and an unwarranted magnifying of
supposed objectionable features iu them.
The city now has an established grade
every where ; there is as yot no reason, to
believe that this grado will be changed
within the next ton or fifty years; but if it
should bo changed, it will bo dene proba
bly only by districts, and then only with
the consent of tho great majority of the
property holders within such districts. And
oa for the leveo bill, well, in view ot the
fact that movoments are already on foot for
amply strengthening all our levees, no ac
tion will probably be necessary under tho
levee bill. We again suggest to brother
Potter and his few fellow-alarmists, to keep
on their nether earments Id poaoo a littlo

NO IDLE LOGS. 1
KKI'ORTED BY SOT. BLUFF.
A regular meeting of the N. I. L. was
held Saturday evening, at the residence of
Mr. , on Washington avenoe, President
Broad head in tlu1 rocking-chair. The min
utes of a previous meeting having been
corrected, so as to suit tbe fastidious taste
of the objector, were read and approved,
as were also the minutes of the last meet
ing, which contained nothing objectiona
ble in orthography or grammatical con
struction, even when closely scrutinized by
the most hypercritical. The roll-call "was
responded to by almost the entire club,
only two absentees being noted Sgts.
Hornblower and Blank. These two gentle
men presented their excuses, written by a
type writer, upon a sheet of fine manilla
paper size 24 by 26. Tbe secretary pas
ted this volumirous parchment upon the
wall, and retired ten paces in order to read
it. It was to the effect that they bad lcn
called out ot town upon important protes
sional business, which was of such an ur
gent character as to compel them to hire a
private conveyance at a very great coat,
viz: two dollar; and in view of the facts,
they hoped that tl.e club would not only
accept their excuse, but take up a collec
tion tohelp defray the expense. A heated dis
cusbion heie arose, in which several promi
nent members took an active part, as to the
propriety of accepting tho excuse as it read.
Sgt. Frizuout said that this club was neith
er a Missionary Society, a Children's Aid
Society, or a Sheltering Arms; that tbe
members were BupjMised to be self-support
ing, that, if the gentlemen were orphans,
perhaps one of the churches in town would
assist them. Sgt. Swell said that the club
need not be called upon for aid, when the
gentlemen possessed collateral in the shape
of good clothes and personal property, and
that there was a place in town expressly
provided to give help in such cases, when
good security was offered. Sgt. Dasher
said that the danger in this case was in es
tablishing a precedent; that the club would
be resolved into an organization tor thu re
lief of destitute females (tho loud laughter
with which this was greeted called the
gentleman's attention to bis mistake, and,
after correcting it, he proceeded in some
embarrasinent) and any gentleman who
owed a tailor's bill, or any other indebted
ness, would annlv iu like manner. On mo
tion of Sgt. Cricket, the excuse was laid
upon tho table, it being tho opinion of the
president that it could be better acted upon
at the next meeting, when tho gentlemen
would, perhaps, be present. Unfinished
busiuess was next in order, and the excuse
of Sgt. Ilornblower, presented at tho last
meeting, and which was accepted with the
understanding that the Sgt. would produce
the man who had substituted slpe water
for bluo lick, came np for further action.
The secretary stated that up to this time
the Sgt. had failed te produce the man;
and, as he was absent this evening, and,
furthermore, was given to substituting ex
cuses for the truth upon all possible occa
