THE 'FUN'S' QUESTIONS.
Tbe Sun1 f last evening contains
-'ring of questions as long as tbo moral
law, addressed to Mr John U. Oborlv, and
.called forth by an article in Tiff Uullk
tix of Wednesday In regard to Mr.
Thomas "Wilson as candidate for county
comml'sioner. As Mr. Of.crly Is not a
candidate for county commissioner, we do
not deem it necetsary to answer at this
timw, thejumblo of questions grouped tc
gether in tbe 'Sun' ot last evening, touch
in; the condition, prospect', etc. of the
Oilrj and St, Louis railroad. Mr.
Thomas Wilson is candidate for county
commissioner, and is openly oppod to
the further tonstructinn of tbo road and
in fTor of tbo repudiation of tbe bonds
already Issued. On ibeso grounds Tiik
BuLLsrritc is opposed to the election of
31 r Wilson, and will continue to opposa
blm until he is defeated or tho contrnry
Mr. Oberly is now in St. L'uls, call. d
there by bis duty as an oflcer of tho Cairo
and St. Louis railroad to attend a business
meeiln? of its board of directors. Ilu
went there at bis own expense, wilt spend
bis own money while bo it there, and
cheerfully neglects his own business at
home, neither expecting nor desiring any
pecuniary benefit for his labor or tlnif
except that hlch be liopi.t, in common
witb every citizen of Cairo and Alexan
dr county, to reap by the spwdy corn
pltttlon of tbe Cairo and St. Louis r .
road, tbe clumsy intimations of tho 'S n'
to tb contrary, notwithstanding. Thn
"anlraus" of Sir. Obrly's opposition to
Mr. Wilson is Mr. Wilson's opposition to
tbe Cairo and Si Louis railroad. ' Only
'this and nothing more," but this Is q'litu
enough lo Induce Mr. Oberly to conscien
tiously and, It is to be hoped, succ.iisfully
oppose the election of Mr. Wilson Ufa
position where bo can bse his Itifbicnce

who for some reason satisfactory to him
elf, is opposod to tho completion of the
Cairo nnd St. Louis rallroal, nnd is seek
Ing tbo position of commissioner that be
may strangle that project so necossary to
tlio bost interests of ibis city.
It is noeossary to tho tvst intoreits of
this city. Mr. Wm II Odon, ono of tbo
most experienced railroad m -n In tbe
country, has written a letter, in which he
says tbe Cairo & St. Louis road is one
of tbo most promising rniiroad projects
In tbo United States that it is doing nn
immense businoss, (or its ago, botwoun
Murnhvsboro arid M. Louis: that Its
onrly completion to Cairo Is dumanded;
ibat tbo road from Murpbysboro to Cairo
will doninro business than tbe ill. Louis
end of tho road in the transportation of
coal ncu iiuur nna grain : ana roucn
moro of tbo same kind of commendation.
Now why should Mr. Thomas Wi.ion
wish to prevent tbo completion of a road
wbicb will bo of so much beneflt to Cairo
a road, too, tbn construct on of which bn
urgud and so loudly advocated, as Judgo
Dross, who hesitated and received Mr
U ilson's condpmnHtinn, will no doubt
hoar witness? Wo cannot lull. If Mr.
Wilson, sinco tho timobo and o'.ber citi
zens wore vory angry bcuso they feared
Judgo Hrois did not want tho road
constructed, had became a dealer
In coal or flnur or grain, and
believed the completion of this road would
bring competition to his door, wo could ox
plmn bis chang) from an iidvocato to nn
onemy of tho Cairo and St. Louis road.
Uut Mr. Wilson lias not, we believe, be
come a dealer In coul or flour or grain,
and why thoroforo should he fear compe
tition 7 llo don't.
Il mty bo his opposition is tbe result of
pitro cusscdnoss; but we doubt if ills.
Mr. Wilson never works without a con
sideration received or expected, and no
tvito man will. It is truo it ennnot bo
siid of Mr. Wilson that ho has boon pub
lit spirited. IIo has noverdono anything
to bouoQt the city, and has genorally been
one of tho men who repelled tbo coming
among us of now citizens. IIo is one of
tho old-timers who used to boliuvo all tho
o0i cs belonged to them and that their
rights in this regnrd were ondnngeri-d
by now-comurs. Dut wo foar
it is not simply a lack of
public spirit that has induced Mr. Wilson
to bocomo to active nn enemy of a rail
road projuct. And sinco bis conduct can
not bu explained by lack ol public spirit,
flour, grain or coul, wo aro at a loss to 11 ml
an explanation for It. But this we do
know, bo is opposed to completing tho
road, nnd all thusu who do not (ear com
