The apathy of Cairo Republicans iu
regard to the outrages which have been
committed on the colored people in Rallard
county fc'.ves grou'td for the suspicion en

Rallard desperadoes are merely the tools of
Republican polu'cians who, in their deeper

by themselves, to save them from impending

mature. The Commissioneis of the Asylum
make the appointment, and they have held
no meeting recently to consider the subject.

At a meeting of the Woman's Christian
Temperance Union yesterday afternoon,
Mrs. Kittenhoiitt' spoke of two gentlemen
who had that day broken their pledges, and
boasted of having drank beer,and of the cool
ing effects of that draught in weather such
as we had yesterday. She spoke of them as
being in the better classes of society; men
who had never been topers, and argued
from these premises that their falling from
grace would tiffinl an example more injuri
ous than if thev had been out and out re
formed drunkards. One of the men, she said,
wore a red ribbon. She concluded by saying
that such men needed praying for. During
the meeting the case of a woman, who has a
family and who is addicted to intemperance
in drink was alluded to, but no action
was taken on licr petition Mr urn
from the society. The devotional exercises
were conducted by Mrs. Still w. 11, Miss
Jennie Wilson was at the organ, and the
members of the Union sang several hymns
from the club slips.
The late Presidential contest engendered
much "bad blood," which coolness and
judgment will correct. The "bad blood"
induced by a persistent violation of Nature's
great but simple laws requires not only
coolness and judgment, but obedience to
hygienic, measures and the proper use of
Dr. Bull's Blood Mixture to insure its puri

THE HEATED TEKJI.
HOTTEST DAY Foil YEAUS CAIHO A
COMPARATIVELY COOL PLACE.
Yesterday, it was predicted by Prof.Tice,
would be the hottest day of the year, and
the meteorological record, as reported by the
signal service bureau, proves the professor
a prophet, so far as forecasting the weather
goes. The oldest inhabitant remembers
just such a spell as this some thirty years
back, while those not so old claim that du
ring the summer of '07 the heat was equally
excessive and it was almost uniform over a
period of thirty days. During that time
not a drop of rain fell in this vicinity. The
subject is a heated one and, in this
weather, we shall not undertake an investi
gation to ascertain in which of the three
instances thirty years ago, iu '07, or just
at this writing the heat was most oppres
sive, although, without inquiry, we should
not hesitate to pronounce this very minute
as the hottest we ever felt, or hope to feel.
As will be seen from the following record,
the thermometer indicated a higher average
than on any other day of the present year:
At 8:40 o'clock yesterday afternoon the
thermometer at Cairo marked degrees;
at Cincinnati 01; at Davenport, Iowa, 1)5;
at Dubuque, Iowa, 00; at Keokuk, Iowa,
07 ; at Lacrosse, Wis., 01; at Leavenworth,
Kan., 04; at Louisville, 02; tit Mem
phis, 00; at Nashville, 07;
at New Orleans, 02; at Omaha. 05; at
Pittsburg, 00; at Sliivveporf, La., 03; at St.
Louis, 07; at St. Paul, 02; at Vicksburg, 04.
Now that Prof. Tiee lias predicted the hot
test day with such accuracy, will he be
kind enough to tell us when this sort of
thing is going to stop? We have had a full
measure of it.

If the authorities and people of Rallard
county are anxious, as it is claimed they
are, to clear the county ot the stain which
attaches to it through the ruffianism of a
band of d"sparadoes, they should lose no
time in promptly nrrest'ng and punishiug
them. No reasonable excuse can be given
for longer delay. The men who have
struck terror into the hearts of unoffending
and industrious people fore' ig them to
fly froiii their homes and aban
don their only means of livelihood are
known, and evidence, sufficient to convict
every one of them can be had without the
slightest trouble. The people of Rallard
cottn.y owe it to themselves to be the first
to move in this matter. Their interests and
reputation are paramount, and the Demo.
crats of the county arc under obligations
to their brethern everywhere to display
activity and vigor hi suppressing these out
laws, for rightfully or wrongfully, it fur
nishes our opponents with an opportunity to
create political capital. With a I nowh-dge
of who the criminals are in this case, and
an acquaintance vlth all its details.
no blame can attach to the Democrats of
Ballard, but this fact should only act as
an additional incentive to an uncompro
mising effort on their part in bringing the
offenders to justice, that even room for
suspicion may not attach to the party.
Yesterday afternoon the colored people
returned to this side in a state ot alarm,
saying that they had been threatened with
their lives by the leader of the gang "' they
pesisted in remaining on the "bank." The
threat extended to the women and chil
dren of the party, and was rendered for the
reason, as we are informed, that "the United
States marshal would soon run them out of
the county, and they intended to kill some
of the d d niggers for being compelled to
We have also reliable information that
the same desperadoes have declared their
purpose to make a raid upon the colored
men in the employment of the Chicago, St.
Louis tfc New Orlcaus R. R. company.
There are some kinds of railroad work that
can be well performed by colored men, and
and the R. R. company many times find it
necessary to employ them, and we do not
loubt that the managers of that road will
join with the good citizens of Ballard coun
ty in defending their colored employes, und
in driving out the desperadoes who are
breaking the peace of the community and
likewise interfering with the commerce
between the states.
The names of the party said to be engaged
in Sunday night's work are:
Henry Al. Stone;
Dewitt Put ton;
With all the facts before them we can
not see how tiie authorities of Ballard can
avoid doing their duty. The parties
barged with the crime should not be per
mitted to escape. If they arrested and
rought to punishment Kukluxism in Bal
lard will have been nipped in the bud, nnd
an example furnished that will deter others
from midnight trooping and ruffianism.

the muses to help them weave iuto verse

THE .SUN "PITS IT"
A ITER A SPELL OF "SUIT I'l'" AM) AC
KNOWLEDGES THE TRCTH OF OUR CUAROES
A UIO DOSE OF "CHOW."
Tho Sun of yesterday evening, under
the heading of "That Proposition," bus the
For several days The Caho Bulletin
has been trying to create dissensions in
the Republican ranks by declaring that
the Jackson couiuy delegation at the late
Republican convention made a proposition
to Judge Bird, which, 'f he had accepted,
would have secured his nomination to the
legislature. We called on The Bulletin
for the proposition, but it has failed to pre
sent it. In an interview with Judge Bird,
we learn that the Jackson county delegation
proposed, not to Judge Bird, but to some
member of the delegation from Alexander,
that if the Alexander county would s!gn a
petition to Gov. Culloiu to appoint Judge
Layman to tho place made vacant by the
promotion of Judge Baker, then they
would support any man from Alexander on
whom that delegation would unite.
This was reported to the delegation but they
declined; possibly for the reason that they
knew that the Jackson county delegation
was divided on the judgeship, and while a
part of the Jackson coun folks might
make this contract they could no. deliver
the vote. Now this is the proposition that
the Bulletin is making such a noise about,
ami Judge Bird did not seem to manifest
any grief on the subject, nor indignation,
except to say that if the proposition had
been made in his hearing, he would have
made it lively for Jackson county in the
convention. Try again, Mr. Bulletin.
This is a big dose of "crow" for our neigh
bor to swallow, and we are sorry that it can
not take its medicine like a man. It squirms
too much. The Bulletin had but one ob
ject in the matter and that was to make
public the true inwardness of the rascality
sought to be perpetrated at Carboudale.
We charged that had Judge Bird been will
ing to enter into a bargain with the Jack
son county schemers he could have had the
nomination fir the legislature, and the Sun
after acting the part of a bully and
luring us to make good our
assertion, has been compelled,
by our gentle reminders, to unbosom
Itself and reveal one of the bar
gaining schemes in all its nakedness to the
public gaze. It is a line commentary on
politics as conducted at Radical gatherings.
It makes the almost sacred office of judge
a matter of barter between conflicting ele
ments in its own party, and insults the
Alexander county delegation by telling it
that the proposition was declined by them,
"possibly fur the reason that they knew that
the Jackson county delegation was divided
on the judgeship, and while a part of the
Jackson county folks might make this con
tract they could not deliver the vote." In
other words the only reason why
the Alexander county delegation
did not make tho trade was that thev did
not believe the other fellows could carry out
their part of the contract. Of the truth of
this we know nothing, but it is only fair to
assume that the Sun, being in the secrets of
its party, knows what it is talking about
when it assigns to its friends a disreputable
motive for refusing to enter into the trade.
Mr. Layman will, of course, have to stand
by the record made for him at Carbondale
a record that will hardly help him in se
curing the circuit judgeship. That official,
must be about bargaining anil trading for
the position. As it has "put up" on one of
the propositions, we feel constrained by a
sense of duty to the public to ask it to "put
up" on the other proposition made at Car
Ifindale by Jackson county people to give
the nomination to Alexander county, if its
lelegation would iu return do a certain
thing lying near to hearts of Jackson county
Republicans. We want to know all about
this other proposition. Will the Sun "put

A STRANGE STORY.
FRANCIS MUUPIIY RELATES A START LI NO IN
CIDENT IN HIS LIKE. AND CON KITES SOME
From The Troy Tlme.
Some nine months ago Francis Murphy,
the temperance reformer, began his work In
Troy, and pursued it for about live weeks
with unexampled success. The story that
Mr. Murphy had committed some dark
deed in former years, in Portland, Maine,
was secretly whispered by persons who
were either envious of his success, or by
those who wished to see him fail iu his
work; and when ho narrated the history of
his life in the opening nights of his lectures,
ho referred to his imprisonment without
detailing the circumstances of the mis
fortune that sent him to prison, we felt that
possibly there was some shadow upon the
past which Mr Murphy might desire to con
ceal from the public. Then when he left
Troy ami engaged in his temperance laUirs
at Washington some hints were thrown in
the press respecting his past career which
seemed to justify the idea above expressed.
Wo accordingly felt it to be our duty to
say to Mr. Murphy that he owed to himself
and Ids friends to publishjthe facts. They
are, as told by Mr. Murphy himself, anil
supplemented by abundant evidence, as
In the year 100 I was proprietor of the
Bradley hotel at Portland. Me. It was a
respectable house and enjoyed a good repu
tation ami patronage, tin tiie tirst ot ep
temlier of that year the St. Johns boat ar
rived at the wharf, and a large number of
guests entered the hotel to partake of
breakfast, ami some registered with the
view of remaining in the city. After the
iriiests had prepared themselves for break-
fust they were nil shown to the dining-room
with the exception ot one man. who remain
ed se tted in the office with head bowed and
hands covering his lace, I usked him
whether he was going to breakfast. He
lifted his head, ami said, "I have got uo
means of paying for it."
I bade him go right in midget something
to eat. I saw by his looks thut lie had been
drinking, and stood in need of a substantial
meal. There was a scar on his face, and he
said to me: "I've been having a pretty hard
time, and would liko to have'sonie.hbig to
drink nmre than food." I took him into
the bar and gave him some liquor, after
which he went into the dining room und
partook of breakfast. Upon coming out
he desired an interview with me, when he
to'dmehe was a l;:ilor by trade, tin utter
stranger in the city, that ho had no means,
and asked me if I would ttist him to a
week's board provided he could get work;
I said I would do tli.,1- u-d, more than
that, I interested myself in
his welfare and went out
out and secured a situation for him. His
name was entered on the registry of the
hotel Patrick Murray, St. .Johns, New
Brunswick. On the evening of the itrd of
September he came iu lute to tea. The
wife of Ciq.t. Huger of New York -who
was superintending the excavations in the
harbor her sister and cousi-i, with two
children, were seated ut their private table.
Murray began in a free and easy way u
conversation with Mrs. 1 lager, whereupon
the waiter rcqu-sted him to desist. He.
arose from the table 'u an angry mood and
left the dining-room, .Mrs. linger paid no
intention to the man, and upon concluding
supper went to the sitf'ng-rooin and en
gaged in conversation with Mrs. Murphy,
after which she started to her own apart
ments, and .Murray assaulted her. I
was summoned, and Murray, declining to
quit my house I tried to put him out, and
after a struggle he fell to 'ie foot of the
staircase with a fractured skull. He died
four days afterward. I was arrested and
tried for the murder of that man. The
trial lasted eight days and occasioned great
excitement. I had to meet the prejudiers
of the friends of the Maine liquor law, from
the fact that I had kept a hotel at which
liquor was sold; and I was bitterly denounc
ed and charged with giving the limn liquor.
I never gave him but one glass of liquor in
my life, and that was for" medicine, und I
had done all I could to nssist him to a life
of sobriety and Usefulness. I can never
