A joint resolution has been offered in
the U. 8. senate for the immediate appro

river improvement as asked for by the com
mission and recommended by the president.
-The president sent a special mssssge
to congress, transmitting the report of the
Mississippi river commission, which aaks
for an immediate appropriation of a million
dollars to complete the work below Cairo

The citizens of New Grand Chain, III.,
have petitioned congress for an appropria
tion of $50,000,000 to be apportioned among

Thomas oresented the modest request to
the lower house of congress, and it was re
ferred to the committee on education.

suit of a second breaking out of fire in the

A band of Turks consisting of two men,
a woman and child, tnree Dears, two
donkies and a rickety wagon arrived in
the city from somewhere in some way some
time yesterday. They started to give street
shows with their bears, but Chief Myers in
terfered and ordered them to leave for any-
here as soon ss possible, which they
agreed to do.
-Among the amendments to the laws
andconstitutiont proposed in the United
States senate Tuesday is one repealing
section 277 of ths revised statutes, which
requires all foreign vessels to unload at a
port of entry prohibiting them from pass
ing up our rivers. The pusage of this
amendment would prove of great benefit
to Cairo in the course of time.
A thorough examination of tht mat
tress improvements made on the banks
in front of the city during the last few
months, provss thtm to have acted like a
charm during the recent brief high water.
No damage either to them or the bank they
ware intended to protect it visible. It is
ikely, however, thst before long they will
receive a severer tttt in which they will
prove equally effective.
The wedding of Mr. W. D. Lippett
and Mias Fannie Pitcher is fixed for Tues-1
day morning, tht 15th. It will be a private
wadding, only a ftw intimate friands hav
ing been invited. But for this fact it would
ba one of the grand social events of the
season, tor no two young people enjoy more
fully the friendship and high esteem of the
entire community than they do. They will
have the hearty congratulations and many
wishss for a bright future, of Thb Bulle
tin. There is more slush in the streets of
cities now than in the newspapers; but the
intelligent reading public will probably
perceive that this state of things is not se
much the fault of the newspapers as of the
elements not so much because of a
rise on the part of the enterprising press as
of a fall in the thermometers and barome
ters ot the country. On second thought,
however, we would prefer not have this
appologetic reasoning applied to the Cairo
This morning for the first time since
the close of the Mississippi, back ot the
city, will the W. B. Duncan bring over the
Tens and Bt. Louis passenger train from
Bird' Point. The incline of thia road is
about four hundred feet below that of the
Iron Mountain and the Duncan has been
hri at work for several days breaking the
ice from in front of it. She succeeded yes
terday morning in reaching the toot of the
incline and made some transfers yesterday
afternoon in the usual way. Alter this she
will probably make her usual trips and
trains will be transferred at utual.
An opinion that is of considerable im
portance to stock men has just been ren
uerud by the railroad and warehouse com
mission. A. J. Streeter, of New Windsor,
III., complained that the Chicago, Burling
ton Se Quincy railroad has charged him on
a car load of stock, more than the lawful
rate. The rosd set up the defense that the
car in question was thirty feet long, where
as the standard car it but twenty -eight feet
long. The extra charge was made on the
basis of the legal rate, and was for extra
car room furnished. The commissioners
decide that their schedule rate applies to
car loads, irrespective of the tize of the
csr, and that in the cue under considera
tion the railroad company had made an
Near 9 o'clock last night Mr.Ssbastian
Bsrtb, of the Postofflce ssloon, accompanied
by Mr. Jemet Meehan, paid Tib Boixitiv
office a visit on business, and as he started
to go down the stairs on leaving he made
misstep and fell headlong down to the foot
of the stairs, where Mr. Meehan found him
lying in an insensible condition and bleed
ing from a wound in the head. Dr. Parker
was immediately summoned snd Mr. Bartb
waa conveyed back up stairs. Examination
proved that Mr. Bartb was bleeding from
a bad cut in bis scalp just over the left ear,
and was otherwise bruised about the bend
His injuries were not serious, but it is by
the meerest accident that they were not
He soon recovered sufficieutly from the
shock to walk honm.
Jack Frost yesterday sued Walter Cun
diff, in Justice J. H. Robinson's court, for
$100 claimed to b due him from the said
Cundiff. Plaintiff had been in the employ
of dofendant fur about a year, and it ap
pears that there has arisen a difference of
opinion between the two as to
what the former was to receive per
day for his services. One claims it wss
$1.25 per day, the other that it was $1.00.
The plaintiff was represented by Mr. Geo,
W. Hendricks, and the defendant by Mr,
W. C. Mulkey. The case was concluded,
and the courn took it under advisement,
The very intelligent readers of The Bul
letin will, of course, understand that the
plaintiff in this case was not the "Jack
Frost" who has, for ten days past, com
milted such murderous assaults upon the
thermometers of this section of the coun
The Abe Lincoln Mutual Life and
Accident society, which takes the place of
the Widow's and Orphan's Mutual Aid
society, is now firmly established, with J.
II. Robinson as president and Mr. Thomas
Lewis as secretary. The latter has been
actively engaged in bringing about the re
organization and has succeeded in getting
nearly all the members of the old society
to join the new organization, besides many
who were not members of the old society.
A very attractive feature of the new society
is the accident insurance, which entitles the
holder of a policy to $25 per week in case be
or she is disabled ia an accident not result
ing from the voluntary act of the insured
Secretary Lewis says that new members
have been added at the rate of about seven
ty-five per diy, since the new organization
has been thoroughly under way.
A nsgro named Edward Dillard, alias
, alias, alias, created a disturbance
in Scott's Congress about 1 :30 o'clock yes
terday morning and was shot in the left
breast by ths bar-keeper, Charles Jones, the
ball glancing off and creating only a flesh
wound. Both were arrested by Officers
Cain and Boughner immadiately after tht
occurrence and yesterday brough betore
Magistrate Comings for examination cr
trial. Dillard, etc., etc., exhonorated Jones
from all blame In the matter; saying that
he himself was the aggressor snd that Jones
only did what be ought to have done.
Jones was, of course, discharged upon this
testimony. But charges of disorderly con
duct were preferred by the officers against
each ot the prisoners sud each was fined
$10 and costs. Dillard was given a stay of
execution on condition that he would leave
The fire of erly yesterday morniag
broke out in the roof of the bouse occupied
by Mr. John Koehler, atter the house had
been closed for the day, and all but a boy,
who sleeps there and "opens up" in the
morning, left. The origin was presumably
a defective flue. The house was occupied
down stairs as a saloon and up stairs was
unoccupied, though furjished. Mr. Koehler
was insured for $500 on his personal pos
sessions in the house. The house was own
ned by Mrs. Lenn&han and was not insured.
The house next below which was also de
stroyed, was occupied as a butcher shop and
residence by Mr. A. Lum nor, who saved
nearly all stock, fixtures and furnitures, and
holds insurance for what is lout. The house
was owned by Mr. Thomas O'Callahan, and
was insured for 500 in the Wells & Kerth
agency. Mr. Richard Welsh, who occupied
the building next below as a grocery store
and had a lare stock, probably lost con
siderable by having his goods removed and
all heaped up promiscuously in the street.
One of the great eastern "Protection
ist" dailies says, "1883 1ms not been re
garded as a good year. From the outset
it has had a bid reputation. It has been
a yenr of universal distrust and apprehen
sion. Business men in the United States
have plodde I or staggered along from
month to month, oppressed with the haunt
ing thought that a panic was impending.
They have been over cautious and unduly
auspicious, and havo passed the year fight
ing shadows. Bradstreet reports
10,187 failures this year about one-third
more than in 1882, about 66 per cent, more
then in 1881 and 110 per cent, more than
in 1880. There is complaint of
dullness in the iron trade iu this country
and reduction of wages in that and the cot
ton and woolen branches of manufacture is
in some quarter proposed. The
tbnnksge in volume of business here, other
than in stocks, will be close to 20 per cent,
for the whole year 1888, in comparison with
1882, of which a part is due to decide in
prices, but probably more than hslf to com
parative inactivity in trade." And tht
Louisville Courier-Journal replies pointedly,
"this reads more like the wild Republican
predictious of what would happen under a
Democratic Administration, than like the
actual record of a year under Republican
