Having learned with prolound sorrow,
of the sudden and unexpected death in a
distant part ot the laud ol our late
esteemed fellow-citizen Alfred B. Sal
lord, Esq,, we the members of the Cairo
I 'number of Commerce und business men
ot Cairo have assembled to give ex
press'on to ourcouiinen grief and to do
honor to the memory ol one who in lit';
was tii,. true and trusted friend ot Cairo
and her men ot business; 'Therefore be
ResUrtt, That while bowing in hum
ble submission to that inscrutable Prov
idence whose ways ure pa-t finding out,
we recognize the solemn fact that a great
and good man has gone from among us
and while rendering as sacred to his
memory this tribute of praise, we have
to mourn the loss of one whose nets of
beneficence extended so largely to all
classes of our community that he has
been justly esteemed a public benefactor.
To the business men ot Cairo his loss
will be most deeply felt; ever ready as
lie was to extend tii1! helping hand in
time ol need: to his kindues. ami liber
ality ire we ull largely indebted. It is
then-lore fitting in us'to place on record,
not only for our emulation but
lor those who uiay come alter us,
the good deeds ol one who as Irlend,
neighbor, citizen and banker, has en
deared hiaisell to our entire community.
Ot no one may it be more truly said
"None knew liini but to love him."
R'sol That in this hour of sad
bereavement we extend to tlie family of
the deceased our sincere and heartfelt
sympathy, und with them will drop the
RnoireiL That the secretary be in

that the mandamus suits against the

through Messrs. Green Jt Gilbert that an
examination of the Journal proceedings of

fact that in the passage of tho act ol

counties, cities, etc., in aid ol the con-st-uction

others will, iu the description given by
Marshal Huberts, II. A. Cuniiingbam,
who some lour months ago, made his
headquarters at Winter & Stewurt's
unction establishment, und went about
this city and neighboring towns repairing
and tuning pianos. Mr. Arter imuiedi
atel v set to work to find out what he
could in regard to Cunniiutli oil's course
previous to his arrival in Cairo, and he
acquired information to tlie effect that lie
has a family living somewhere in the
upper part of the State, whom lie hit to
go abroad to carry on his profession.
At Paducah uniiiiiL'hain became ac
quainted with Miss King, who was the
daughter ot a highly esteemed Presby
