capacity for tho purpose of commencing 1
a new year In the history of Cairo, and to i
enter upon tho discharge of tho Important
untie which our fellow-cltizon havo nv
posed upon ttsj duties which I freely con
fess I would havo wished tohavo been put
on Ihu shoulders of somo ono of my fellow
citizens mora nblo to disclmrga them than
myself. I have, however, boon selected ns
chiof executive of our young nnd now
growing city, and will, with your earnest
co-operation, ondcavor to leavo nothing
undone, which, In my fcooblo wav, 1 can
do to further Its interest. Gentlemen of
tho council, tho position you occupy, ns
nldcrmen, Is ono of great responsibility.
Tho diameter of its citizens, and tho ad
vantages of its location, havo much to do
with tho growth of n city. Thoro are,
howuvor, many causes boyond tho control
of tho citizens, and altogether Indepen
dent of Its location, which may uuntilbuto
to its growth nnd prosperity. If tlio men
who enact Its ordinances, nnd thosa whoso
duty It Is to uxeculo tbo will of mu
nicipal icgiiiuiiou nro uulu aim lumen, u
city is fortunate, nnd its interests will not
bo retarded, but bo fostered with caro and
skill. Uontlcmon, when tho municipal cor
poration is well governed, the people who
compote it havo llttlo reason to complain
but when the municipality is led by cxtrnv-
iigancc, thoughtlessness nnd corruption,
tho puoplo who coniposo'it will havo good
caut) of complaint. If thoro is truth in
this proposition, and I have no .iuui of
its soundness, nothing could bo tnoro U I III -
cult than tho uamliig of n position of
greater responsibility than that upon
which you am now entering j u position
requiring, cool deliberation, unbiased
minds, and a great deal of tact nnd wis
dom, utid from which even tho suspicion
of corruption and tho folly of prejudice,
should bo summarily excluded. 1 am tat
istlcd, gontlemon, you will meet tho re
sponsibilities of tho position wisely, nnd
perform its duties woll. Yours is no easy
task; it will requlro much of your timo,
much moro in proportion than any of tlio
councils for tho last four yoars thoro be
ing only ten members in tho present Loud
while thoro wore o'ghteon In tlio lust oi.o
However much ti'ito it will take, 1
hopa and trust you havo counted tho cost
and nro now ready to perform your
wholo duty, lot only ns representatives of
those who havo placed you here, but as
roprosontatlves of the whole city of Cairo,
Independent of parties f any kind, sect
or color.

Tho moral well-being nnd good ordor of

For tho people,
Dr. J. P. Orler lc:tlfiod-Practicing

Tubbs ho Is dead; dlod slnco July; on tho
JCth of July was called tosco Tubbs; went
Immodlatoly to see him; found him suffer
ing from n wound In thn back; tho ball
had pitied through tho stomach, went in
nt tlio Luck; remained with him sometime
ho wanted trio to glvo him morphine; h
vomited Ireoly; discharging oyston; Itwns
about It o'clo:k when I saw him; it took
ino 10 or 15 minutes lo go whoro Tubbs
wa; noxt morning 1 was summoned to
nixko n post mortem examination of the
body of Tubbs; I did so mil found a hole
through tho upper part of tho stomach;
found tho ball; it wns a rillu ball;
Tubbs I'lima to his death by tlio
olfects of n gun shot wound; met Tubbs
that morning; I was going homo and mot
him a fow hundred yard; from whoro ho
wns killed ; the shootsng was dono in tho
upper part of this county, on tho !'Glh day
of July, lbl'J; Tubbs was In tho hou-o
when I saw him; old know tho
si') of tho ball, but don't remem
ber now ; had tho ball until
tho case was tried before Judge Hross;
.Mr. Wchbtook tho tall.'
Cross examined by Judge Allen "Was
at tho widow Ooodman,) when
I was sent fur; was closo to tho Cairo, and
St. Louis railroad; was summoned by
Scott Ha.lowood: saw lilm heforo ho got
to tho houc; was riding pretty fast;
started m soon as 1 saw him; had started
from Mrs. Goodman's boforo ho got down
the hill; ho called mo to como n fast as I
could; 1 wont pretty fast; went with him;
was bet ueen 10 nnd lo minutes before
wo got to Tubbs; had n w,tch
and looked nt it; don't remember whether
it was 1j minute boforo or !" minutes
nftcr 11 o'clock; my watch was nbout cor
rect; don't think I met any ono on tho
way down; found Mrs. Tubbs, Mr. Hnzlc
wood, Mr. Thompson and others nt Tubbs'
whon I got there; don't remember seeing
nny ono on tho rond down; did not halt
in crossing tho railroad; did not sco any
ono coming up the railroad; Cooper creek
is south of whuro crossed tho
railroad; don t know whether I
lookod down the road; I can't toll if
Uunvli carao nfior r befuto I gut tburo;
don't know if KoachN grocory was shut
up, but think It wns closed; don't know
how long Koach stuyed there, but ho wa
thoro rpiito n whilo.
liy Llnogar The grocory Is nbout a
mile and a quarter from whoro wo found
Tubbs,
Mr. uilll lliilewooil toMlllui! Wai ae-
miaiuted with Tubb-i wan Willi lilm on tin,
Juth uf duly, 1I2; the first I saw of him wai
with .lordeii, coming toward the grocery:
tlio grocery was kept by n man named
Koach; Tubb- wa drinking Mime that day;
I wa -Jltlng on the fence, and llotl'iiuu
came mid -el by me: did not go into the
grocery; Hodman (.aid "let's go In;'' I ald
no; after a while I aw old man Price and
hi nn go away, and then we went in;
Tubb began to;iiarrel with llhllm.iii, and
said hu wa "a ii d traitor;" I pushed I (oil
man away, mid told Tubb lloll'uian did nut
want to light; Tubb did not like It; anothci
mail t-alil ll tliey wanted to
light let them do It; Tubbs slapped Hollman
lu the lace; I think hu pudicd or Mapped
llotl'man; Hoffman went out and went over
the dump toward home, Tubb followed
lilm onto the dump; last I saw of Holl'uunhc
was on his way home, near tho brldjra oer
Cooper cieek; can't tell the exact time of
day It happened; it must li.it e been .s or!i
o'clock lu tlio forenoon; I mppono it I hall
a mile from the grocery to HiilfmanV hoii'e;
I was with Tubb aH tho time; wo tald at
the grocery; Koach look hi gun and w ont
up the road and hot onco or twice; Tubbs
wanted mine oytcrK, and sent for Koach; ho
caino back and we nto bceral boxr, or
ojteis Koach took hi gun and went oil'
again; wc left tho grocery and went up to
JordcuV; Tubbs rode Taster than tlio rc-t or
in, and wa somo distance ahead; when we
got to Joiden'-, we found Tubb
laying on the bed; ono or the
gill came In from Tubbs' hoio ; Tubb got
up and went out ; In a little whilo wo heard
a idiot, and Jordon wanted to know what it
iiieanl; wo Marled over tol'iibbs' hou-.ii
and went around the road; 'when wc got
near tins house wu heard Tubbs' wllo
screaming; cho "-aid Tubbs had shot hliii'd';
wc wont up to lilm and found blood on hi
back: to tho lest ol my recollection I un-
derstood that ho shot himself ; hu i-poko of
the terror of death, and wanted a doctor;
I sent my koii to Mr. Ooodman', where the
doctor was; it Is n. sliort dl-taiico from .lor-
den's to Tubb' hotic ; both houses set on
the same -10 aero lot; It 1 about !!00 yards
around the road between the houses; 1 can't
tell exactly, but think It wasabout 11 o'clock
when shooting took place; il milglit liavn
been niter that time; from the time Hun-
man lclt the grocery for homo until wo
licajd the filing, think ll was l or'J hours
It I I inilolVoiu the grocery to whero Tubbs
wa shot; tlio slimiest route from where
llotl'man lived to Tubbs' houso In right
through tho woods, a dlstanco of thrcc-fjuar-
tciv to ono utile, Ihcro Is no trouble for foot
men to get through tlio woods; 1 h;uo gone
through it wllh n two horso team; don't
know w hero Tubbs wa going when ho loll
the grocery; did not hear Hoiruiaiuiiako any
threat. against Tubbs at any time; I was on
the hill flouting the door where Tubbs w as
hot; went on tho hill and found that ho had
been shot byji tillo ball-probably "biislr
whacked;" Haw where eomo ono had laid;
wo "nudo sightings from behind n tree to
tho houo, and found there was an open
way; wa probably (io or "0 yard from the
houso to the tree; tho ground was higher at
thophico whero tho shot was tired from than
at tlio house; the elevation would ho prob
ably "0 or SO feet; Tubbs had n pistol in Ids
pants pocket; It was a very .mall cartrldgo
pistol, I picked It up from tho ground; 1
QU)pod tlie ball taken from
Tubb.' body and one used lu
the pistol; there was n great diflcrence, ono
was a rlllc nnd the other a pistol ball; tho
pistol ball wa very small, what I Would call
n "hell rarlrldgo ball;" Dr. Orler and my
self weighed tho ball of the pistol and the
ball taken from Tubbs' body; Ihcro was n
great dlirerciicc, tho ball taken from thn
body was twice the heaviest; I don't know
whether llio cartrldgo was off the pltol ball,
but tho ball taken from Tubbs' body was
much Ihu heaviest; they would not balanco
at all; somo men picked up tho patching
fired from tho gun; It was checked pntchlng;
I weighed tho ball with n ball
given me by Yely llelbinan.
tho ball- balanced exactly; was
