The following U what tho Paducah
Afiee has to say of tho performance of
the Cairo tniustrcls:
It Is but (ustico to say that the bovs
from Cairo fairly surprised our people
last night. They had a good hoe.se,
about such as we usually sec at simi
lar performances. A.few of the fuccs
which usually apicar at the ball ou simi
lar occasion were missed, but this, we
tako It, was wini to "things' some
how iu the way which could not be well
gotten over. The troupe did
well rrcnerall v all through, and certainly
gave the best overture w o have seen on
that stage for a long while and furnished
a new feature In tho business, of lour
end men Instead ot two, and all good.
Mr. Morris' place as middle man w as In
deed most splendidly filled, and the va
ried routine work was turned ott by him
with a, readiness that showed talent,
gturly and adaptability. 'The songs were
well selected and beautifully sung. Mr.
r raak Jlowee' "Miecn Aiianna. ' Mr-
John Alsthorpe's "Kssio Dear,"
Mr. W. W. Wright's hearty
"Sadie Kay." and Mr. Morris' "You'll
miss me w hen 1 am gone," w ere each
very line. 1 he "gair ' ;wero generally
new and good ones. F'rank Galigher's
"Meet mo on the cross roads" was tully
up to that furnished us by the New
Orleans Minstrels, and Johnny Horn's
"dashing prima donna" was a success
in every respect, i.ou rscimckers did
finely in everything and furniohtd fun
with the most perfect naturalness, .All
iu la.'t did well and received the most
hearty applauso throughout, not because
they are our neighbors, but because the
audience could not help it, ami, should
the boys ever undertake to take a notion
to start oat, you know, to travel to do
business, that is, if they should at any
time happen to fall through at what they
nr now doing, why we hare no doubt
they could make very lair headway on
tho other side of the foot-liirhts from
those who pay to get in.

We ak the good citizens of Cairo,
without distinction of party, to look anil
see who are the urtit opponents of Dr.
Smith in the present municipal contest,
Are they, as a rule, nu n whose support
and influence should bo sought after in a
contest like this? We do not think so.
We know ot only a lew men aui3tig
them who are entitled to respectful con
sideration. And yet there are a number
of good citizens, w ho, w hile they are
not avowed opponents of Dr. Smith, Hre
giving his enemies encouragement
and implied assurances of support.
We believe that we but state a fact that
will be genet ally admitted that eight out
ol every ten ol the better class of citizens
of airo would rather see Dr. oiititli at
the head of the city government than
any other man who has so far avowed
himself a candidate tor tho mayoralty.
And yet in the lace of all this, there are
meu In the city good citizens, and mem
bers in high staudingin)the churches, who
avow a determination to vote against Dr.
Smith because lm was nominated by a
Democratic convention. As .well might
these nu'n! say thev would not
vote for a man because
he does not belong to tho same church
they do. Dr. Smith Is a Democrat, It is
true; and that he is a good citizen un l
will make a good mayor is equally
true. Bu: it Is gratifying to know that
the number of men in Cairo who are so
blinded by prejudice as to allow that
prejudico to sway their better Judgment
in the present instance Is comparatively

The Siit says there are "some good
men in Cairo, even some good Demo
crat who ure not pleased with the
ticket" nominated last Saturday night,
and the "Bi t i ti ts' bull-doz-iug
will do no good."
Iu thi our neighbor is
undoubtedly correct, so far as it con
cerns Republicans, but that the uuiu
ber of Democrats who are not satisfied
Is very large wo do not believe. It
would, Indeed, be a rare occurrence for
any party to nominate a ticket that
would bo acceptable to every member ot
the party, aud that iu the present in
stance there should be a few displeased
Democrats U only natural. But the
Democrats did not expect the Re
publDaus to be pleased. It is
uot to be supposed that they could be
pleased with anything the Democrats, a
a patty, might do.but we have this to
say to our Repu'jlicau'lrleuds: If they re
fuse to nominate a ticket trout their own
ranks, and conclude to support
Dr. Smith's opponent for may.
or, aud he should be elect,
ed, then upon the shoulders of the
Republican party must rest the responsi
bility for his actious during his tenure of
office, whether good, bad or luditL-reut.

defeat to any such responsibility,

The Chicago Timet, speaking of Carle
tou's lecture at the academy ot music In
that city, says:
Will Carletou's lecture yesterday
afternoon, at the academy of music, was a
sarcastic, witly.and grand protest against
the sham and shoddy ot the nay. lie
Imagined, instead ot the Greek wooden
horse in tho streets ot Troy, au immense
golden horse brilliant and flaming out
side placed on one of the principal
streets of our country which
he compared to a great
city, "whose riches and splendor threw
Troy In tbe shade." There proceeded
from it Sham, and his wife Fashion, each
ot whom asked "not what f am, but
what I can sham." The "Farewell to
the Old House," came In opportunely
to illustrate that unless the heart is
there, the dwelling, only made with
hands, is a mockery. The old house
where the children were born, and
"whose every nail touched a tender
spot," is one of the finest of Mr. Carle
ton's descriptive poems, and was ren
dered pathetically and artistically."
The opponents of Dr. Smith aad the
other gentlemen on tbe ticket with him
are doing all In their power to sow the
seeds ot dissension amoog the friends
of the diilereut caudidates. They are
circulating all manner of stories, and in
a hundred different ways are they trying
to create dUcord Iu the ranks of the
supporters of the ticket. But we say to
Democrats, and all those who believe the
interests ot the city will be beat sub
served by tho election of Dr. Smith
and his associates, to stand fast
and give no heed to the trickery and
deceptions which the opposition are
resorting to iu order to further their own
chances. By electing Dr. Smith
to the mayoralty Ciiro will regain
much of w hat she has lost w ithin the
last two years, aud will again be placed
on the high road to prosperity.
