The method by which Tub Bulletin
arrive Ut tho results as to tho cost of do
ing a certain quantity of filling at a certain
price may hava been a little original. It
was purposely adopted in order to make it
easier understood by the Argus man. The
method was probably not entirely in ac
cordance with ordinary rules, but the re
sults were none the less correct, so far as
tho actual state of things is concerned.
According to lhe Argus assumption that
the levees are seven miles long (which is
too much by several miles) the city within
the levees would comprise a traction over
1,008 acres. There is probably no man
who knows more accurately tho length of
our levees and the number of acres they
encloso than Col. Taylor, who fixes the
number of acres within the levees at ju&t
1,100, or one hundred and four acres less
than Tue Bulletin has been basing ita
figures upon, and seven huudred and
twelve acres less than tho Argus' outrageous
- Among tho many novel and interesting
presentations to bo given at the Opera
House, beginning Thursday next, will bo
some wonderful manifestations of spiritunl
iem, in which will appear all the tests so
much relied upon by believers, tho cabinet
rope fastening scenes, slate writing, ic,
the same to be exposed, and tho whole
trick given away to tho audience. This
part of the entertainment L will more
than repay' the smalt price of admission
charged. Bu ier will sell reserved seats in
parquet circle at 50c, family circle 2jc ,
while the loft remains as of old 25c.
Asa news item the paragraph stating
that Ju L'o Browning had attended the
masonic meeting Monday night was super
ior to any of its fellows. It was news, not
only to the masons, but to Judge Biowning
also, who are convinced now that they were
in a trance during tho meeting. The judge
was to have been here, that is, all tho mem
bers of the lodge expected him to be here,
but for some reason or another he hadn't
been invited and was in Benton when ho
ought to have been juggling the trowels, etc.,
with the boys here. But Capt. Jno. R.
Th'ima,, who is assistant grand master of
the state, was preseut.
The umpire of the match game of base
ball between the Cairo and Paducah clubs
has decided that the score stood nine to
four in favor of tho Puducah club He did
this by going back to "even innings" the
Cairo's li living made three in tho ninth iu-
uiug, which ho lopped off. The umpire is
certainly mistaken in bis understanding of
the rules b aring on this point. Had the
Cairo club been ahead at the eighth inning
then it would have been very proper to
ignore the tallies in the ninth; but as the
Cairo's were away behind at the conclusion
of the eiuhth, the ninth must be admitted.
The tallies of the 9th inning are lopped off
only when the Bide that made them is
ahead without counting them. This, we
understmd, is the rule.
Tho Paducah News gives a very fair
report of the match game played there be
tween the Cairo club and the Eckfords Sun
day. In the course of the account it pays
the following compliments to individual
members ot the Cairo Club: "Mr. Spen
cer, who caught for the Cairo boys, is a
good ono. He catches well and played
Itogether very fine. Owing to his size
(he weighs about two hundred pounds) the
kids dubbed him Jumbo. The Cairo boys
are about the best non-professionals who
isve visited Paducah for a number of years.
They allowed themselves to get rattled
and suffered a too easy defeat. Mr. Wil
son, ot the Cairo club, made the only home
run secured on his side. He lifted two men
off the bases and awoke his club to renewed
action. Tho Cairo club changed pitchers
on the two last innings with benefit to them
Belves. Mr. Healy is abetter pitcher than
the gentleman who pitched before him."
The Argus has been a chronic opponent
to every formidable effort to rid the city of
its constitutional evil, sipewator. It was
opposed to puddling when this was attemp
ted, though whenBtopped there was every
reason to believe that it was practicable
and the Argus has since expressed itself in
favor of it; it was opposed to "Dutch Gap"
as a moans of temporary relief, though it
served the purpose for which it was made
thoroughly and even demonstrated that
water would "run up hill" of its own voli
tiou, if only in order to spite the ArgUs;
and now it opposes the high grade, which,
it has not yet dared to deny, will, if ac
complished, remedy every evil of which
Ciiro his had to suffer. It is just prob
able that, as in the past, so in the future,
the Argus' opposition to any public enter
prise will bo looked upon as a matter of
course, and with about as much indifference
as the hooting of a lone owl in a jungle.
True public spirit does not maiiifost itself
in systematic opposition to everything and
does nut allow itself to be influenced, in its
consideration of public affairs, by per
In the September term of the circuit
court, which was adjourned late Saturday
evening, all the cases against parties in
jail, except the single case of The People
vs. Kate Williams, alias Kate Cotton, in
dicted for the murder of Jerry Thompson,
were flu illy disposed of. The case remain
ing on docket is the poisoning caso,
and was continued by agreement in order to
give time for au analysis to be made of tho
stomach of Jerry Thompson. Nine cases
in all were tried anil disposed of, there be
ing seven convictions and two acquittals.
The convictions were as follows: Joseph
Stevens, burglary, sentenced to one year in
tflo penitentiary; Oeorgo Houston, alias
Georgo Hourigan, burglary, two years;
Jerry Sullivan, burglary, two and one-half
years; Charles Carver, alias Emmet Carver,
burglary, four years; Nathan Brown, alias
Forepaugh, assault to murder, one year,
and Marshall Brown, petty larceny, con
victed of second offunse, three years. All
of whom have been taken to Chester by
Sheriff Hodges. Willis Love was convicted
of petty larcency and sent to county Jail for
twenty days. Tho business ot the term was
conducted with promptness aud dispatch;
tho Urge number of couvictions as com
pared with tho very few acquittals will be
noted with qualification by law-abiding cit
izens as indicating a vigorous prosecution
and enforcement of the crimiual code ou

Barton, of the Free Press, while squirm
ing under the loss of printing for tho Nor
mal University, goes a little out of the way
and with flagrant disregard for the truth to
assail Tue Bulletin and its management.
We Biuiply w ish to say to Jno. Barton, and
he wont deny It, that the pressman of The
Bulletin job office is paid 25 per cent,
more every week than John Barton even
promises to pay the best man in bis office;
that the youngest apprentice in the Toe
Bulletin job office is paid within 25 per
ceut. of the highest wages that Barton actu
ally pays and that even the preBS boy in
Tuk Bulletin office earns and recieves
more than the pressman of tho Barton
office. Understand us, that wages are paid
weekly, not i-homiskd. The Bulletin
otiice is in debt to uo printer, ono cent, who
has worked in it since November 1st, 1878,
us far back as the present management goes
If Barton can say as much for his office of
high priced (?) printers he has an undeserv
ed reputation us a promising employer
among tho fraternity, that needs his prayer
ful attention. Barton seems to think that
the Nurmal s hool, iustead of a state iotti
tution, is a strictly local institution in Car
bondale, and that, though tho poople ot
the state at large are taxed to maintain it,
only Carboudaliaus should be permittod to
bid for what it may have to let iu the way
of printing. Barton is a hog, in a certain
eenso of the word.

and turning off first-class work. We invite
