Mr. John II. Barton of Carhondale was

Mr. Barton is about to go into the news

Not so. The Hibernian Fire company

tion will make arrangeraenes for the
proper celebration of the Fourth and
every last mother's son in Cairo will cele
brate the day at Washington Garden.
Among the headlines over the criminal

This will be news to the people of Cairo.

bribo us to do it. We are williug to have
an investigating committee of congress
go into this matter. It may summon
witnesses and seud for persons and pa

inculpating letters from anybody. .

and Mayor Winter calls them man's best

The Fourth will be properly celebrated

are being made by the Hibernians,
Washington garden and hall will be pre
paired for the occasion in elaborate style,
and nothing be left undone to make the
occasion a grand success. We wonld sug
gest to the committee that a person
should be procured to write and read the

of congress and the proclamation ol the

history, if prepared will be forwarded to
