The election yesterday passed oil very
quietly, probably not more than thrco hun
dred votes being polled. In North Cairo
precinct not over 130 votes were polled,
while In South Cairo precinct tho number
was probably little over 200. Judgo Baker,
than whom a more popular man for the posi
tion could not bae been found In tho dis
trict, had no opposition ; and ocryono knew
that ho was "sure of election anyhow."

To-morrow evening, the Cairo favoiites,
Mr. and Mrs. Scldcn Irwin, .will make their
re-appearance, at the Alheneum, sup
ported by a well-selected company. There
will be presented Lovell's beautiful play of
"Love's Sacrifice." Briefly the plot Is as
follows: Counts DcLormo and Uuvlrav love
the same gill. Tho latter Is the tucccssltil
suitor. Being jealous by nature, he, atter
Ills marriage, taunts his wlfoultb baseless
hints ofintldcllty. She dies, and OcLorme
on tbo the night or her death, happening to
meet his rival, kills him in tho excess ul Ills
passion. The latter flees to England, us,
sumea the name of Elmore, marries, be.
comes rich, and rcmoesto Paris, atter his
wile's death, and .becomes the guardian of
the orphan, Eugene DeLormc made so by
his sword. This joutli loves Elmore's
daughter, Margaret, and the protective
match It sanctioned by Elmore. Among the
mny Hilton ot Margaret, is one La Font,
who becomes posseted ot Elmore's secret,
and being rejected by the girl, uses his
knowledge to force her into a marriage with
him. In order to shield her father, Mar
garet, who has been made acquainted by
La Font with the story, consents to be his
wife. Tho plot culminates when a lrlar,
who had been induced by La Font to aid
him in securing Margaret, reveals himself
as the supposed dead man, Count DeLormc,
and the villain is foiled of his purpose, anil
Etignne and Margaret are made happy.

Judges Mill key and Green may

Harrison bad porformod his duties at bar
tender all the day proceodingthe niitht on
which the crime was committed ; bo did
not beloive the jury could be made to be
lolve that Harrison was insane. It might
be that be was drunk, but that ho was
crazy was another question, etc., etc.
Mr. M. Wilson, Etq, for the defonso,
followed Mr. Wheeler in n few remarks
to the jury. Ho did not propose to occupy
much of the timo of tbo jury at tliit time.
He would lay, however, that tho gentle
man who had just closed, had termed tho
plea tut up for their client the plea of In
sanity hi this "last resort" In rases of this
kind. Notwithstanding the gentleman's
opinion in thit respect, ho believed they
would bo able to show conclusively to tno
jury that the prisoner, from long and ei
cessive uso of strong drink, was insano at
tho time of tho commission of tho crime.
It wai a well-known fact that about two

don t recollect now who it was . first man
I met when I went to tho houso was
ltlieutan ; couldn't remember any vti
elso; know Mr. Hnrrion taw Swoboda
but knew I im better by rputatlon than
othttrwlso; was in Cairo on an average of
twice a week think I was in the
bouso about tbreo minutes before ,u
went out to ga a drink . was
in tho snloon perhaps two minutes after wu
came out; Rheutan sat on a beer keg and
I stood up betide him; a colored man
came up and said tbero was a man tbot
was not over a minute after we went out
until tho colored man camo up, 1 thought
the ihootlng was nt Scott i ; we ran all the
way down , the hall was open at Winsor .
and I saw thn disturbance inside and dona
all wo could to separate them ; wo went to
wbero thp parties were as toon as wo went
into the ball, I don't think Harrijon
mado any reiistnnce at all when wu took
him off, HarrUon seemed to be a little
oicited when wo took hlrn off; I should
judge thai be had been drinking; I don t
know the man well enough to tell, but
think hi wasunder tlio lnfluonceof liquor
I think Harrison ttaid In thu houea min
ute or so, and Rheutan told me to go homo
with hitn, but as I did not know him well
I did not want to go; P.heutan told Har

In tbo hall that Rbeutan asked Harrison
for the pistol ; Harrison did not attempt
to do anything after wo went Into the

it wai almost immedlati Iv
as ho asked for the pl'tol thnt Mist Grace
Winsor presented it to Rboutan; the did
not seom to want Harrison to lee her
give tbo pistol to Rheutan ; Mitt Win
