     The trial of the proprietor of the City Restaurant, on the charge of entering at night, with evil intent, a room in which one of his waiter girls slept, was to have begun yesterday before Squire White.  The girl, however, failed to appear as prosecuting witness.  It was stated she had left the city.  The case was accordingly dismissed.

     Thursday evening an express car of the Hannibal and St. Joseph express train, eastward bound, capsized near Liberty, and fell over into a ditch alongside of the road.  There is no accounting for how the accident happened, as the locomotive nor any other of the cars were thrown off.  The express car was badly damaged, but fortunately no one was hurt.  The westward bound night train was detained several hours by the accident.

     To-day the Evening News of this city is just one year old, and in so short a space of time, on a very small money capital, but on a capital which is much better, strong hearts and willing and able hands, it has grown to be an institution that the city may well be proud of.  It is the only evening paper in the city, and is undoubtedly one of the best in the State.
