CAIRO BULLETIN; FKIDAY 3DRNIXG! AUGUST
Davis, their congressional candidate,
dono more to bring; about this stato ot
things than all other agencies combined.
The undiluted ignorance of the man has
done its work. Ho, makes the most common
and inexcusable blunders in what ho snvs
are facts, and has the hardihood to defend
them. We have called upon Democratic
prodigals to return to the old roof and to
unite in prayer, and they have nobly re
eponded to our uppeal.
DocTOit lUi cii says if we the Utc board
of health had the money, we would Imvo
taken the whole thing in our hands, but
there was no str.te appropriation. This fact
did not seem to cut much of a figure in the
case. He nppoars to have run our lnimi
hoard with ease, and has saddled upon us
the expenses which he admits should J,0
home by the state. We should not be r.t all
surprised if there would be thunder all
around the skies when the time comes
around for settling the little bills which
have been made by the toard of health,
without warrant in law, to protect the
wealthy sovereignty of Illinois, and its con.
inercial capital, Chicago.
The way iu which the Itadiuds of this
ilistrict are suffering from Harwell's defeat
for the Democratic nomination is heart
rending. One section of the poor fellows
think it was because he was a Dutchman,
while another section think it was because
he was too loyal for constituents that had
twice honored him. It might be of some
interest to know how Mr. llartzell himself
takes it. A glance at the Democratic an
nouncements for speaking in Tut; Un.i.ETis
will show that Mr. llartzell is doing and
will continue to do all that he honorably
can to secure Judtre Allen's success. Xo
man can take defeat more gracefully than
Mr. llartzell, and no man is doing better
sen-ice for his successful competitor. The
inconsistency of a Hadieal editor is only
equaled by his capacity for always avoiding
a truthful expression.
It now turns out that Dr. lbtuch was the
author of the floating hospital scheme,
lie wanted to take the c:es off Units, re
move them to this lloat, and nior it near
the town. That is further than we had
supposed he had gone in this matter, and
now that the state has contributed the
princely sum of f :j."j4 he will doubtle.-s in-
ist on carrying out the terms us he under
stands them. Ilesavs:
Now. If we hud a flouting hospital. s I urged,
we could have taken on" the sick patients and theu
dl-lnfi'cted Hie reinnludcr of the crew, allowing
them lo pa-s up the river, but not to laud."
If he pursued the jmlicy of taking sick
persons off all boats coming from the in
fected districts he could not find flatUiuts
enouli ul.it Cuiro to u'l'ouinKNluto thorn.
This is what Dr. Waldo bus said nUnit the
proposed fuctis of infection w hich w as to be
anchored at our doors, Writing to the
Surgeon-fJeiieral U. !. M.iiino Hospital
service, he Said :
"To eM.iVMi a ll'rillng ho;iil.i' at this place for

naturally iiiti cteii won iniio.ni wotilil have a tendency
lo pnipii.'iite the yellow fever nilu-in, and it would
Income a tr.ip for maintaining the pooii."
And Dr. Waldo has common (mmisj us
well as science on Ids side. This clears up
the hospital business at least one tVutuiv
The prospects forjudge Allen are decid
edly ei c imaging. News from all parts of
the district indic.ito a great popular up
heaval fur him and for the principles he ad
vocates. Democrats who for years have
taken no active part in politics have emerg
ed from the (pin t of their homes and are
vicing with one another in rendering service
to the party and its candidates. A well
known business man of tiiis city who has
just returned from an exten-ive business tour
over the district reports the best results
flowing from the efforts of Democratic
speakers and of the press to enlighten the
people on those issues which come home v
them ami touch their pockets. Indeed the
bloody-shirt policy which Thomas ostenta
tiously declared would be the feature o
his canvass, has fallen flat. On
really living issues especially that
of finance -tho magnillcent record
of tho Democrats in congress rices us an
advantage which we aro pleased to know
is being utilized to its fullest extent.
It would be unwise to bo over-confident or
too sanguine, but we think we are stating
the case mildly when we say that Allen
will bent Thomas between twenty-five hun
dred and three thousand voles in November.
A mom utterly broken-down, spiritless or
ganization than the Republican party In

We Hsk should such a law lie allowed to

Dit. H. t en, president of the state Uuird
of health, ' resirted in the Chicago Times
'". Wednesiby luoriiing as saying that the
atmospheric conditions of Cairo are very
I oralile fir the yellow fever; that it is us
ht lu re as it is in New Orleans; that, after
.Vemphi.o, Cairo is the most exposed point
ir the Mississippi valley, and if it had got
1 start lo re it would undoubtedly spread
iato Illinois. We do not know that the
p rsonal opinion of Dr. Ituuch on the sub
jtct of yellow fever would com
iiand uny attention, or deserve
my. It is not known that he has ever had
iiy experience in the treatment of that dis
ease, and if he has been correctly reported,
his opinions demonstrate bis lack both of
experience and knowledge. The opinion of
Dr. Hauch us a man, or even as a physician,
would be to us a matter of indifference, but
when he assumes to speak us the head of a
state board whose actions just now receive
wide spread publicity, the matter takes on
a different shape, and the people of Cairo
cannot allow opinions which are not fur
removed from downright slanders, to
pass unchallenged. In the first place the
doctor, 111 saying that the atmospheric con
ditions of Cairo uru very favorable to the
yellow fever, runs counter to the opinions
of the ablest and oldest physicians umong
us. They freely assert that we are except
ionally free from all fevers malarlul and
otherwise. This assertion iu bused
upon facts which can bo furnish
ed, and are incontrovertible. Wo do
not say that yellow fever could not exist
here, for it bus been proven, according to
Dr. ISlackhurn, that it can exist in latitudes
where theavcrage temperature isaslow asOO'
Fahrenheit, but we do maintain that it has
never assumed the form of contagion here
The point about the beat at this place being
us great as at New Orleans proves nothing
for tin) doctor's side. During tho heated
term New Orleans was recorded us one of
three points reported having the lowest trm-
perature in the country, At certain seasons of
thu year Cairo, like all northern towns, has
11 higher temperature than New Orleans,
but average that temperature and thu com
flarisoti Is at once to tho disadvantage of
New Orleans. Cairo lias early frosts,
mid pronounced winters. In this, and
In tho puro ntmosphero created by
two large, swift-flowing streams, which
meet at our doors, no tho secret
of our exemption from contagious diseases.
Tho doctor asserts that Cuiro is, after Mem
phis, the most exposed point in tho Missis
sippi valley. He need not have excepted
Memphis. Cairo is tho real gateway to
the North from portions of Tenneysec und
Kentucky, und from Mississippi, Arkansus,
Louisiana und Texas, and in hegiras of pop
ulation, such as wo have witnessed this
season itcertuinly stands in tin exposed situ
ntion. But isolated cases of yellow fever
have U'cn imported into Cairo on
und off for thirty years, and the disease
has yet to assume u contagious form here.
In 1873 there were seventeen deaths re
ported here from it, but those were case
which were contracted about the river and
wharf boats. There was no spread of it in
the town and no alarm over it. It is true,
as Dr. Hauch has stated, that we have had a
case of yellow fever this season. It is just
fifteen days to-day since a deckhand who
had contiacted tho disease on the John D.
Porter was taken sick with it and treated
and thirteen days since his death. It was
undoubtedly a fcisc of the vomit. The
best authority living or dead on yellow fiver,
Dr. Luke Ulnckburn, gives from five to
seven days for the incubation and develop
ment of the disease. Twice that time has
passed und there has been no symptom
from the Porter case. Now, we submit that
no better evidence can be adduced than
this iu favor of the proposition that the at
mospheric conditions of the place are un
favorable to its spread, especially when the
experience of this season has confirmed
the experiences of all the years that
have preceded it since Cairo was
a town. If Illinois gets it from
no other source than Cairo, we believe it can
easily rest seoure. Men in official stations
cannot U-too guarded in their utterances.
Dr. Ranch by saying that we have a climate
"very favorable to the disease,"' has inflicted
upon us on injury that his busy tongue, ij,l
it wag in denial from now to the crack of
doom, could not remove. We are willing
to Udieve that the gentleman did not com
prehend the full meaning of whiit he said,
and that he was still suffering front the
fright he had experienced in coming here.
He unconsciously contributed everything
in his iowcr to create a panic here, hihI bis
utterances ut St. Louis recently and Chicago
still later show that the scare is still upon
him, and that his wits have well-nigh
