Messrs. Smith Bros, have a shingle

tairly under way. The firm is "cpreading

their ill irts arc rewarded with success.
Mr. 0. F. Meyer and Alderman Mc
Cracki n, r,f Mound Cily, were In the city
yesterday. They were much pleased with
ttie result of tl,e election in their city
Thursday. Dr. Casi j was elected Mayor and
the anti-railroad candidates for the council
were also elected. The council now stands
five for and one against the I. C. R. It
Mr. Meyer believes that manufacturing in
terests should have the preference over rail
road interests and it seems that the neople
are with him, though it has nol yet been
demonstrated that, as a general rule, the
one is antagonistic to tho other, or th-.t it
wouldn't be a g.iod thing for any city to
Lave both railroads and factories.
The negro who stole that large mm of

He has every iieces34ry convenience fur
running the business in good style and

partment. The city council was called by the
mayor to meet in special session last niht,
for the purpose of canvassing the vote of
Tuesday's election. But owing to the ab
senco from the city of several aldermen and
the "indisposition" of several others, no
quorum was present and the meeting ad
journed until Friday night.

"The Rightiousness that Avails" was
the theme of Rev. Whitney at the Baptist
revival meeting last evening. The con

with close attention, but though sme

comit themselves as seekers of religion.

-Captain Shields was fortunate in being
able to catch the Rose Eytinge Combina

St. Louip, and "as only able to induce her
manager to stop here one night by an offer
of an extra perc ntage of the receipts. This
will necessitate a slight advance in prices
of admission which have been placed at

reserved seats which are now on sale at

Jonesbiro Gazette: "The Toledo and
Texas Narrow-gauge Railroad Company,
who proposed to construct a railroad from
Charleston, Mo., to some point on the Mis
sissippi river between Cairo and Cape Gir
ardeau, Mo., placed a mortgage on record
in our count last week far a large sum of
money. The mortgage is to the N. Y.
Trust Company, who propose to furnish the
money as the work progresses. A company
of engineers have run a line two miles
West of this town to the river opposite
Cape Girardeau, and it is supposed that
the survey is in the interest of this pro
posed Toledo and Texas Narrow-gauge
road. Gen. Buel and Judge James Allen
are the principal operators in this scheme."
About the management of leveea along
the Mississippi river during flood time, the
New Orleans Times-Democrat concludes
an interesting editorial as follows: "If the
Federal Government should undertake the
management of the Mississippi river many
difficulties would be smoothed away, but
for the preBcnt.at least, the various riparian
states must expect to rely entirely upon
their own resources. So far as Louisiana
is concerned the construction and maintain
ance of the levees is a matter of the most
vital importance. A telephone line should
be constructed along the entire leogth 'of
the levees, with stations at intervals of two
or three miles. Depots of supplies should
be established at central points like New
Orleans and Baton Rouge, and ample
mi'ans of nromnt trannnortdtion to the
. , i - i
scenes of dauger should be provided. Stun
gent laws should be passed to prevent the
cutting of levees, and the use of tbem as
public highways. The present system of
rice flumes is extremely dangerous and
should be abolished without delay. Dur
ing seasons of high water the levees should
be patrolled dsy and night by trustworthy
men. At the first sign of danger the tele
phone would bo used to summon assistance
from the nearest depot of supplies. These
are but vagup, general outlines of the sys
tein, which, in our opinion, should, at the
earliest possible moment receive the careful
attention of the legislatures. The highest
questions which can claim the attention of
the eolightened legislator are those which
vitally concern the material interest of the
commonwealth, and all empty political ab
atractions fado into insignilicinte in com
parison. Wo hope and ixpictto soothe
time when an adiqiMte levee system under
one coinpruhensive plan shall be maintain
ed from Cairo tn the Gulf. In the mean
time we would like to see Louisiana take
the lead in a movement which would re
store prosperity to a vast seelion which is
now at the mercy ot the river. 1 his ii.mvc
ment should bein t once, and theie
should be no relax vim of iff.rt tr til we
shall have a line of levees c nsiiu ted ac
conli.ig to the most approved laws nf t'liiii
neerinjr, and protected by all t!e vioa
which ingi nui'y cm sug;e-t at d iinin.-tiy
A couple of negM woim-n n -vik' m d
Magistrate Comings eitrly yesti-i d y Horn
ing and complained that tw n c;. n n oec
ted wi'h the ciirua had ainini u d a n-ti.o
girl, the daughter ot one oi' n t in. The
women weie given insti actions, mid they
went and notified an olF.eer v. ho went
through the car in which they sai i :hu girl
Wis held captive, it'id, sutc enough, theie
was thejoung damsel. She was brought
out and so was one of the ciieii. men whom
she accused of forcibly def i ning In r.
Yesterday the man was iximined by Mag
istrate Comings; but it was not rovm that
he was the rijht man ni l it wa proven
that the uirl had been a voiuntoy victim
of the abduction (fy; and the man was .lis
charged, of course.
Generally the election re.-ulted very
satisfactorily. Good men were eh cted in
all the wards, ami the affairs of the city re
main in the hands of a body ot men who
will not permit the city "s iutces's to be
sacrificed. The men that it was secietly
arranged should be brought out in the in
terest of the St. L'U:s and Cairo Con. p iny
were not brought out, pirtlv for the
reason that th se who were np.iib-d to re
fused to rui', perhaps fores-dug defea 'ind
partly beciu-e the design was discovered
an i exposed pcrmatur. ly. Asa n-uit "he
n. u. didn't get a smell and the City Coun
cil remains an iiisurm untable hairier t the
accomplishment, of any sjlieme th it d s
not recognize the interes!-: of the city lii;t
and above those of tin: (Ain-uerj d.tin bond
holders. At th.- Thirl ward poll i n election day
one negro one of the rurally "tl loence"
crowd stood and sat aroun I all day until
after supper, waiting to be bough'. Winn
the poll was about to be closed he made a
last effirt to dispose of his v -te, but being
r-pu'.sed, he went straight to ilic coutrer
and voted an open ballot. In v'e.v of this
circumstance and the fact that th'! result of
the election in this ward hinges on but a
single vote, the contemplation that the a
penditure of half a dollir or less w,u!d
have produced the opp -it; resul n.tiur
ally arouses the hearty in dignath n ot all
men who believe in the iurity f electi i s.
This one instance is but a simple of many
others in the same ward. The few negr
"flooence" men who make a bu.-iness ot
buying and selling votes for paltry consid
erations at every election, were much ill-appointed
that there was but one canlidite
in the field, beciu-, if there would be no
opposition, they could not, with any show
of reason, demand anything tor their votes.
Accordingly, on the night before th eh c
tion, having waited U'ltil the la-t ni mi. lit
in vain for an opposition candidate to an
nounce himself, they con-pire 1 among
themselves to force another man into the
field for no other known purpose than to
give their "fl toence" ami votes a nvr.ry
value at the polls the next day. They
raised a dollar or two and had tickets print
ed bearing Col. Jqo. Wood's name and next
day went industriously to work. But the
scheme didn't work as well as was anticipt-
ted. The candidate wouldn't be caught in
the trap set tor him and refused to buy the
franchises of the blackmailers and this
brought him defea. The disappoint"'!
band of mercen ary conspirators all voted
for Col. Wood ju-it to revenge themselves
against the stubborn candidate, and the
result sh iws that they hail just str ngtli
enough to accomplish their purpose. It so
happens that the man elected is a good
man; has made one of the best councilman
in former years and w ill doubtless do so
again. But this is purely accidential ; the
blackmailers might just as easily have
elected one of their own number. These
unscrupulous election leeches have become
entirely too troublesome and too bold; they
ought to be suppressed, and probably the
best way to do it is to give them a little
dose of Grand Jurv.
