Taxes are being paid more promptly
since the decision of the county court re
fusing judgment for railroad interest tax.
This tax amounted to more than one
third of the entire taxes and to be re
lieviHlfrom its payment, without running
the risk ol sale or forfeiture ot their lots,
is a great relief indeed to our citizens
these hard times. Mr. Sheriff Irvln and
his assistants are kept quite busy In
making out receipts and receiving money.
Until the tax sale, which takes place the

will be tlie busiest place in the city.

Abont Confidence Men A t'ard Irom
Sheriff Irvln .
Cairo, Ills., July 13, 1S7C.
Editor Cairo Bulletin In your is
sue of Tuesday last you published an ar
ticle entitled, "A deplorable fact," In
w hich It Is stated that the city is over-run
with confidence men; that a gang make
their headquarters here who prey upon
innocent strangers, until it has became a
common thing lor men to come to Cairo
w ith well filled purses and tine watches,
and leave without them; that the atten
tion ot the authorities has been frequent
ly called to this fact, but
with steadfast stupidity, amounting
to culpability they have refused to rid
the town of this gang. In your issue of
yesterday you say Sheriff Irvin and his
deputies have taken this article very
much to heart. Nov.-, Mr. Editor, the
statements made in I fin first article are
objectioiwl, not only to myself, but to
every ofllcer in the city, because they arc
untrue. There has been but two cases
in the past mx mouths where watches
have bcou taken upon the Ltrcct, and in
neither case was the work that of a con
fidence man. In both instances the par
ties became badly intoxicated, so
much so as to be oblivious of
what was occurring around them, and
while in that condition, aud asleep iu the
open air, were relieved of their valuables.
The work has been conceded by all to bo
the work of uegroes a class of crimi
nals.by virtue of their habits and associa
tions, iu a town like this, the most dill!
cult of all others to detect. White men
who visit dives and baginos, kept by ne
groes, w hile under the influence of li
quor, can expect nothing less than to be
robbed; and while it may be gratuitous
in me lo say so, I sometimes think they
ought to be. It is a physical impossibil
ity in a town of such a vast
importance as a traveliug center, lor the
small number of oftlcers in charge of
police business, with the character of the
people who are dropped every day Into
our midst, by river and rail, to watch
all. They simply do the best they can.
As an evidence that the duty has been
well performed 111 the pi, not more
than six or seven witches have been ta
ken in six, years where the fact was re
ported to the authoiities, in which a ru
covey has not been had. It is notorious
ly well known, and 1 the subject of uni
versal comment among professionals that
Cairojs "crooked to them;" that it is
the most dangerous town lu the country
in which to ply their vocation. It will be
remembered that In years no robbery of
any great importance has been commit
ted here. No case of a professional con.
lidence man pursuing his calling here has
occurred in years, except the one referred
to in your paper some time since as hav
ing occurred at Powers' livery stable.
Iu that case the man beiten, himself a
gambler, while boasting of his exploits,
was singled out by two professional con
fidence men, aud for his peculiar astute
ness in the business, beaten out of some
forty dollars. Alter getting hi money
the operators Jumped Into "a
skid' and escaped lioui the State. They
have since that time failed to put In an
appearance here, probably rightfully con
sidering it an unhealthy locality. Under
existing laws vagrancy is ouly an oflcnce
where a party l without visible mean
ot support, a Interpreted by our supreme
court. A man or set of men may come
here U he baa an abiding place or money
to pay hi hotel bill, and remain until the
crack of doom if he commits no offence
against our laws w ithout heins liable to
arrest. Ho may ply his Infamous calling
every lay In the week in our
neighboring States, Kentucky or
Missouri, but if he keeps
"hands off' here, lie can not be hold
amenable to the law. I submit that it is
admitted by all that our police force is
too small Tor the duties they are called
upon to perform, and that their conduct
should not be open to criticism, at leat
without Just cause. In this case there
is not the slightest foundation lor the in
sinuations and criticUm contained in that
article, unless it 1m the failure of the olil-
cers to accomplish results in the two
watch cases, where the most skilled de
tective might lie at fault.
Very Respcefully yours.
Alkx. H. Irvin.
