Rev. C. W. Bonner, who is nearly
blind, and who has been declared unable
tor work by his conference, will deliver a
lecture at the Methodist church In this
city on Friday evening. Rev. Bonner is
indorsed by his Elder, Rev. B. R. Pierce,
who advised him to tnis course as a
means of earning a living. Mr. Bonner
recently delivered his lecture,
the subject of which is "Grit,'
to a large and intelligent
audienco at Du Quoin, and all
who heard It, speak ol the lecture in the
highest terms. One gentleman who
heard the lecture says : "I have paid
Ave dollars to hear a lecture that did not
begin to comparo with it." Let all who
can, hear the blind preacher, and at the
same time aid a worthy man. Admis

were Mr. Haflord's, Mr. .las. Barclay's,
Mr, Henderson on Ninth street; Mr.

Dr. Wardner' tho thief got Into the

the act of examining the pocket of the
doctor' overcoat. The doctor, with re

larship, but unfortunately the revolver
would not go oil, and the burglar, being
bard pressed, bounded through one of
the large windows in the front part of
the liouse.carryinix with him the curtain,

"THI PEOPLE'S TICKET."
The Keeling to Nominate a ' People's Ticket 1
and IU Work.
It Is generally understood by tbe citl-
rens of Cairo that a meeting was la id at
kleb's hall on Wednesday evening, and
that a ticket for city officers to be voted
for at the April election, wa put In nom
ination. The cull for the meeting, how
ever, was not general, and only a lew,
lHThaps not more than twenty-live per
son received "invitations" to be present.
Tho 'invitations" were printed on Peter
Cuhl's tyie writing mat bine, and read as
Cairo, I i.l, M archjl S. 1 S77.
Dkar Sir : You are resiieetfullv re-
quested to attend a meeting of property
owners, to be held on Wednesday even
ing. March 14, at 8 o'clock, at the Mystic
Krew rooms Kleb's Hall Commer
cial avenue, ltw-en 11 ami 12 streets.
for the purpose ot considering tha feasi
bility of nominating a people's ticket lor
the coming city election.
Respectfully, C. K. Nellis,
C. O. Patikk,
Peter Ccii l.
No one about the Bui.lktix establish
ment received an Invitation to be rresent
at the meeting, but wishNig to keep our
readers posted on all matters of Interest
to thcra, our reporter decided to make
an effort to get into the meeting with Uie
view of laying It proceedings before the
public, and golntt tg the door ol the house
was, to hi surprise, admitted without
Oq entering the room he found about a
dozen persons present, among them F.
M. Ward, Charlie Lancaster, Billy Wil
liams, B. F. Blake, John Major, Harmon
Able, Peter Cuhl, J. B. Pbillis,and several
others. The crowd was seated about tho
stove, and to all appearances had no par
ticular object in view. A little later Her
man Meyer came in, and a few minutes
after Capt. J. M. Phillips, John Antrim
and R. W. Miller, put in an appearance ;
and they were followed by others nnt'l
the assembly numbered all told about
twenty-live persons. For halt an hour
nothing was done, and as It was appar
ent the crowd would, if anything, grow
smaller instead of larger, it was decided
to organize Uie meeting and proceed to
business. Herman Meyer nominated
Peter Cuhl for chairman, and Mr. Cuhl
was "uiiauimouily" elected.
cl hls kem ark's
Mr. Cuhl took the floor and returned
thanks 'for the preference tho meeting
had shown him. He said lie supposed
those present understood the object of
the meeting; it had been called to nom
inate a People'a ticket for city officers.
The people did u' turnout much, though.
If Jack Winter was the best man
for mayor he ought to be
re-elected; he (Cuhl) had pros
pered in Cairo for eleven years, and if
license to sell whisky ought to be put
down to one cent, why, put it down, and
it it ought to be put up to ono thousand
dollars, why, put it up. The people of
Cairo ought to lay aside prejudice, and
all pull together and try to build up a
city. He was In favor of united action.
Mr. Cuhl addressed the meeting at con
siderable length, urging upon the mul
titude the necessity for nominating a
good ticket, and took his seat amid ap
On motion of Charlie Lancaster, B. F.
Blake was chosen secretary, and then lor
several miuutes there was dead silence.
WANT TO "THROW t'P."
Mr. Cuhl (leaving his seat and going
into the crowd) I think you had better
select some one else to serve as president
of this meeting. I don't understand the
Herman Meyer Go back aud take
your scat. We'll get through somehow.
Mr. Cuhl returned and resumed his
seat; and then agalu a deathlike stillness
pervaded Uie room lor a much as two
minute. The awful sileuce was finally
broken by Herman Meyer, who moved
that the meeting proceed to nominate
candidates. The motion was not put but
it was all the same With the meeting.
LANCASTER fiKTS IN UIS WORK.
Charlie Lancaster nominated Col.
John w ood lor mayor. Alter a panne
of two or three minutes, and no other

called for the ''question."
A vice voce vote I was taken, but 'the

a "division" was ,cal led lor, A rising
vote was then taken and resulted nine In

nee for mayor.
John Clancy nominated Jack Winter
A voice You aro too late with that.

John Antrim said he thought the best
way was to put various persona In nomi
nation, and then let the claims of the
nominees be discussed.
K. W. Miller moved to adjourn. The
moUon was seconded. ,
