Depot, The OraS sWpment of strest rail^n arrived this morning it bei,,» « pe car load of T rails to be used on «»o Rock falls brsBch. The T rail Is to to nsed ou all Btreets not iraca- daiaized. The top of the rail projects tout a smsU distance shore the level of t!je stsreet and is not of much incon- venienea to traYel. —Dixen Snn: It. was reported that Friday night a colored tramp attempted to steal a ride oa a train pulling out from the Illinois Central depot from the north. The conductor, on his refu sal to leare the train, called the assist Bnce of the brakeman, when the fellow leaped from the car 1 which by this time was on the bridge. One moment his burly body shot out Into the darkness and tee next they heard it strike the water, some 40 or 50 feet below. The train was stopped, but soon the tramp's mocking laughter mingled with oaths wae heard earning np from below. Evidently that fellow was not bom to be drowned. In one case, at least, gns anJ electric Illumination have met and made friends. In Cincinnati the gas company itself is putting in an electric plant to accommodate such of its customers as desire that kind of lighting. When electric illumi- iwtion can be utilized perfectly for private houses, leaving gas for fuel, then civilization will be approaching perfection. The gas can be manufactured where the natural product cannot be obtained. This is what our cities will certainly come to. Then, no smoke, no ashes and no tattling coal carts.

"Varnished Board," Every 5 yards marked B. Priestley & Co. ;KET3. Police T_nap«!ctor_Bjrm!B,.of New York, •ajB plainly in The North American Review that city lodging houses are downright nurseries of crime. He refers especially to the class which charge from five to twenty-five cents for a night's lodging. In these resorts drunkards, thieves,, murderers and various Mndsof criminals have their haunts. If a poor boy comes from the country to ..find work, he naturally drifts into one of these places. He makes tho acquaintance of desperate criminals. They take him in hand, lead him through the lore of their dark training school and in a little time praduate an honest boy into a full fledged housebreaker or sneak thief. But where shall an honest man with only twenty-five cents in his pocket go for a night's lodging? Inspector Byrnes does not say. He only says these lodging houses should be held under strict surveillance. It is a question for civilization .to an- gwer. One thing is clear already. These cheap, very cheap, lodging houses pay or they would not continue to increase in number as they are doing. Now, if they pay as low resorts, they will certainly pay as decent .ones. If the churches, if benevolent associations, if anybody with "a heart at leisure from itself to go out to suffering, 11 as Rev. Mr. Chapman puts it —if such as these •would interest themselves sufficiently they might transform these "nurseries of crime" into training schools of civili- sation. A ir W. F. Bt John, of New York, then rend an able technical papor on legal tender. Ho expressed himssll as opposwl to free coinnm of silver, and outlined a plan for retiring the legal tender notes of tho K°™rn- ment rapidly and without dimmishing Urn sum of money in circulation. A motion to recommend to con(rr<w, ™ch action as was outlined in Mr. Bt John's paper was referred to tha appropriate committee. Silver In Place of Greenback*. . Bt John's plan is that the secretary of tho treasury be require 1 to buy and coin »4 000 000 worth of silvar bullion each month; provided that not more than 90K can to, or 412W grains, bo the amount of silver to be contained in a silver dollar; that wito the coinage of silver the lejul tender notes of the government ba withdrawn, dollar for dollar, as the nllvr-r is in-mod, and that gold and silver certificates be made legal tender. A Vlull from Coolojr's Commlwlon. By invitation tho interstate commission, headed by JU.IRO Cooley, paid a visit to the convention. They were escorted by Maj. William Warner and C. H. Ncttlcton. JmlRO Cooley was called upon to speak, ana being introduced by Presidaat Pearsons he said that he and hia colleagues winhed they might attend all the sessions of the convention. "But wo are intrusted to a certain extent " he continued, "with tho management of a business that we wish wo could bring under like rules and into tho certain regularity of banking business, which, I very will be some time before we are able to do." Messrs. Schoonmaker, Morrison, Veasey, and Bragg also responded with short speeches to colls made upon them by the delegates. _ ..... i,,..,... l. »t»ot OHIO*.

' In the afternoon tho delegates were given a ride over the various cable lines of the city which pass most of the points of general interest.

We place on sale New American Industries, It Beema likely that at length the United States will bo able to export coal. By way of beginning a coal line has been established, between Florida and Cuba. The fleet for this purpose is not formidable aa yet, consisting only' of an ocean tag with half a dozen steel barges, an English steamer and two or three American sailing vessels. But enough fuel has ""already been shipped from the Alabama mines, through Pensacola to the West Indira, to show that the trade can be profitably carried on. The Loulsvile nnd NaahYille railroad are therefore building a coal dock at Pensacola, and it is expected that this trade will reach 400,000 tons of coal annually. Thus there will be an outside market for American coal, one more industry giving employment to several hundred or a thousand men and a prospect that fewer mines will be obliged to shut down part of the year on account of over production. A fresh impetus has also been given to tho sugar culture in Texas. Hitherto comparatively little attention has been paid to cane culture in this great and ({Sowing state. But the possibilities in that direction have been brought before the public in an unexpected way. Maj. —Goree, manager of the state penitentiary, casting about for some employment that would occupy bis convicta •- and *t the same time not interfere with tlia labor of free men, set them to work co sugar plantations. He reports that ha boa not only paid all their expenses thereby, but has made on each convict employed a profit of |S90 for the year. Ii oonTicte can do as much, what might not free labor produce in turning part of the fertile plaina of Texaa into •ogar plantations? If Texas could yield ia wigar a tenth part of what aha does in Cotton, sji« could ananally bun* aay gag« trust that might be formed in civ- jHs^tkw.
