A txnllne oairte.
About two week! ago a mad giving hi
uracas J". C. Dalton arrived In the city
and took trp quarter at Leo Kleb's on
Ohio levee near Eighth street, Dalton
is a tna'n of fine appearance, of good
address, and by his conversation gave
cyidenoe ot considerable familiarity with
business affairs of a commercial nature,
lie avo out that he was in the employ
of a "herding company" In Colorado,
and was in search ot
men to go west as herdsmen. A
few days after hi arrival in the city
Dalton called at Ant,riru's.clothing store
aud ordered a line suit of clothing. In
the course of his conversation with Mr.
Antrim, Dalton said that before he left
town lie would purchase a stock of cheap
goods, suitable for the employes ol his
company. A day or two later Daltou
again called at Mr. Antrim's, contracted
for two or three dozen felt hats, as many
pairs ol pants, and numerous other ar
ticles, all ol which he had packed in a
large trunk ready for shipment at a mo
ment's notice. Dultou then said he was
waiting for bis partner, who Jbad gone
to Leuisyille on busiuces, and as soon as
ho returned he would call for the gocds
and pay for them. A day or two ago
Dalton again entered the store, this tini
in company of an old man wearing a
farmer-like appearance. Dalton
asked permission to do some writing at
the desk, aud in a little while
called Mr. Antrim to witness a con
tract between himself and the farmer
like gentleman with him. The parlies
then left tha store. And now for the
sequel: It seems that Dalton is a confi
dence man of the worst klmd. 1'revlout
to coming to Cairo he spent two or three
weeks at Shawneetown.w hen he made the
acquaintance ol a couple of farmhands
namd .Tell. Harliu and John I). Cage,
and entered into an agreement to employ
them in the name of the
Colorado "Hunting Compauy,'
aud arranged with them to meet
him in Cairo, from which point they
would start for Colorado. Ou Monday
Harlau and Cage arrived in Ine city, and
were met by Dalton, who took them In
charge. In tlie course of the eveniug
Dalton borrowed $35 from Cage aud $i0
from Harlan, and also managed to get
possession ol a good watch and chain,the
property ot the barkeeper
at K'ebs's saloon. til course
Dalton "skipped out," and his

and everybody else.; He is $U5

acquaintance with either Harlan or Cage,
or fall in with the police. He is a
sharper, and long ere this Is beyond the

No Money lu It.
1 uere is uo money in ine present cau
yass lor that class of meu who year alter
year for the l.it ten years have bartered
their indueuca to the candidates who
could raise the largest sum of money
It Is a fact known to every man Demo
crats and Republican alike who have
taken an active part in me election in
this city since 1o!, that large sums ot
money have bem expeuded in
buying up the leader of the
newly cniranciu.eu colored men.
But In the present canvass, so far as tlie
Democrats are coueerued, there will be
uo purchasing ot votes. On the part of
the Democrats there will bo no money I
the canvass for any one. If they wiu, it
w ill be by fair and honorable ineuns, and
not by the ballots ot men who have sold
their votes for a consideration But not
withstanding nil this, u know that
within the last twenty-eight
hours certain well-known col
ored men .have approached Democrat
and given them to understand that It the
"proper luttuences" are brought to bear
ou them, they will support the Demo
cratic ticket. To then men we gay, uu
lea you vote the Driiucratio ticket of
your own choloe, "without money aud
without price" we do not want your
votes, aud you must go elsewhere. Any
colored man who desire to vote with
tbo Democrats bee tax fa believe!
that a change of administration Is nec
essary Will be welcomed by Demo
crats, and will be treated with the aaine
consideration that any other voter would
be. But for tha men who sell their votes
as the butcher his us eat or the merchant

do not want them.
