Mr. Jno. Gates returned yesterday
from Commercial Point. He has been hard
at work saving what he could of his fine
wheat; but in spite of all bis efforts he
will lose about fifteen acres. The river is
falling there now; it fell one and a half
iuches during Thursday night, and as it
falls, it takes Ivge patches of ground with
it sweeping it down the current. The
warehouse and dwelling of Mr. Foster has
been swept away by reason ot the earth
caving away from under it; and the prem
ises of County Commisssionor James Mul
cahey has nlno been attacked and is
succombing rapidly. Mr. Mulcahey saw
himself compelled yesterday to begin tear
ing down his barn in order to save it from
falling into tho river.
It is understood among railroad men
generally here, that there is soon to be a
consolidation of the Cairo division and the
next above, of the Wabash road. There is
as yet no official basis for the "understand
ing," but utterances by under-officials
immediately interested leave no doubt of
the near advent of the change. It is under
stood that the Cairo division will bo mer
ged into the one next above and that Super
intendent Mooro, of this division, will give
place to Superintendent G. F. Stevenson,
who will have charge of tho consolidated
divisions. Mr. C. I). Bradley, master of
bridges and buildings of the Cairo division
will retain his position in the consolidated
divisions. It is expected that the official
edict making the consolidation will be
promulgated shortly after tho 1st of July.

but intimates that tho people who enjoy tho

furnish tho money. Tho Argus intimates
correctly. Tho people will furnish tho
money and will be gtud to do it, too. The
owners of tho property abutting the Im
provement will furnish most of it, of
course, and In every case the property will
increase in valuo to tho cxtont of double
tho cost of tho improvement. We havo in

LOWER -AFRICA RAMPANT.
Last evening an epidemic of violence
prevailed for a little while in tho severs
parts of the city where the lower class of
negroes reign supreme. Pistols, knives
aud other weapons were freely used and
blood was drawn in several instances.
First upon the list was a young Paducuh
boot-bluck, named Smedly, who distin
guished himself last evening by shooting
at a yellow fellow nsmed Tube Bell. A
crowd of negroes were playing ball in the
viciuity of the gas works; Smedly display
ed his weapon, Bell proposed to take it
awav from him and went to execute the
threat when Smedly fired aud caused him
to retreat precipitately. Smedly is in jail.
Next came an affair a little rune serious.
A negro named Forepaugh, a roaming fel
low who bus been hero but a comparative
ly short timo and lived in the low down
dens, went to the door of one of his haunts
on Fifth street, called for another fellow, a
white man of about his own level iu re
spectability w'io bad taken lodgings there,
and when the white man ciune to the door,
opened fire upon him, shooting him once in
the elt breast. Hut it seems
that the weaoon was a small one or
the shot glanced off, for the white man re
ceived only surface wound not at all seri
ous. Officer McTiguo in attempting to ar
rest the shootist was so much interfered
with by tho white fellow he had to hit him
a welt over the head with the
butt of the negro's revolver. Both
were taken in charge by the
officers, the negro was j tiled and the white
man was taken to police headquarters,
giyen surgical attention and permitted to go
Forepaugh shot at another negro Saturday
night, from tho window of one of Catfi h
Johuny's hell-holes, but missed his aim
1 bo white fellow he shot last evening is
himself a rough character who came here a
day or two ago from St. Louis.
Thirdly, a vounc neirro owed another
young nero living in Catfish Johnny's row
80 cents in good ami lawful money. Th
creditor demanded immediate payment and
was backed in his demand by half a dozen
of his black fellows. The debtor had a
dollar which he offored to get changed,
and then come back and pay up; but the
creditor and bis gang refused to permit this
and when the debtor moved away they fol
lowed, yelling, cursing, burling brick bats
and other missies and one came close upon
him and was about to slash him with a
knife when he jumped into a pond of water
up to bis waist to save himself.
-Attorney-General McCartney, in an-
swer to a letter irom tne Mayor oi uraio-
woixl, who desired to know whether saloon
licenses issued May 1, the beginning of the
fiscal year in that city, would be good until
the close of the fiscal year, April 30th, 18S4
has written as follows:
Dear Sir: Your favor of the 15th inst.
received. The Harper bill, uow a law, pro
hibits the issuing of a license after July 1,
1882, except for amounts therein fixed, or
more, at the discretion of the municipal
authorities granting license. After July 1,
therefore, no new license can be issued nor
the old one renewed without complying
with that law, whether it had been given or
not for the whole municipal year. It, how
ever, previous to July 1, 1883, a license had
been granted for the municipal year, that
license will be good to the end of that year.
If a payment for the liceuso had been made
for only three or six mouths, that is a
license only for tho tiuio paid for, and if it
ends after July I, 1883, no renewal can be
had without complying with the terms of
the Harper law, I answer these questions
informally and unofficially, as a matter of
Courtesy only. Yours very truly,
