Buothek Boctox says:
Cairo, as the port of entry from the South, shonM
establish a proper itinralitlne : not shutting her
doors In the face of everybody, but detaining thoe
whom jdiysiciaiis say siiould not pass, and taking
care of tlieslek at her gates, like a (lood Samaritan.
If she Is not able to N .ir the exiH-nse of a q;uinm
tine liosphal the great state of l"inois will, and
should, assist her. Cairo should then suppress
the newspaper leporter to the Chicago press, who
daily proclaims, "no yellow fever in Caho !"
Cairo lias now a reasonable quarantine.
She does not shut tier doors in the face of
everybody. Whatever safeguards hhe has
seen proper to adopt are quite as much in
the interest of the people of the state of
Illinois as ot herself, and he lias yet to hear
of a municipality even rci agnizing her ac
tions in this respect, much less contributing
a dollar to lighten the burdens we can illy
afford to bear. Wo would like to play the
part of a Good Samaritan to all the sick
everywhere, but to undertake the tak our
friend assigns us would involve us hopeless
ly in a week, and from Uing charitable
ourselves it would throw us upon the
charity of others. We cheerfully indorse
the suggestioj that the sensational reporter,
telegraphic and otherwise, should ! sup
pressed, and if the suggestion was amended
so ag to include the sensational din tors it
would correctly express public feeling on
the subject. Between them they can keep
a community, just at this time, constantly
on the ragged edge of despair.
The street-comer orators have cooled off.
A day or two ago some of th'-e valiai.t
gentlemen asserted that it couple of the
members of the city council des ived
hanging simply because they want' d the
board of health to prn-ecd according to
law, and to confine itself to a legal exercise
of its powers. We hear that one of these
blatherskites threatened all sons of dire
things to The Bci.i.ktix because it cilt
cisod the vascillating, mice. tain andpai.ial
course which for a few days characterized
the action of the lxmrd of health. Tiik
Bi l.t.ETt.S lias all ajong demanded a quaran
tine not n blockade. It lias demanded the
adoption of clear, stringent regulations, and
tho impartial execution of them. It op
posed a blockade that was being consiantly
broken by the issuance of lormiN to cer
tain interests while they were denied to
others. It saw that such a quarantine as
this was a iVcc, and it said so. It believed
that the board of health should establish
regulations bused on reason regulations
that wou'd bo legal, and that
would withstand the assault of
those who might feel disposed to break
through them.' Tho regulations of the
blockade would not have stood for a mo
ment in law, and the men who were making
all sorts of threats as to what they would do
even in violation of law, understood the
difference which attaches to speech and
action the freedom of the first and the re
sponsibility of the latter. Now, that rea
son lias partially returned, and with it new
regulations and rules of quarantine, the
public demands that they lie strictly en
forced without fear nnd without favor.
Let the board treat all alike. It claims
to nave a settled policy. Wo hop; it
may slick to it.
Jknxik Ji'.nk, having, no doubt, a couple
of iniiniageablo daughters on hand, whom
she is anxious for somebody's win to support,
expresses herself in this fashion of the
young men of her acquaintance: "The
present period seems to be fer'l.lo in the
productio- of sappy youths, who arodevoted
to neckties; who have not strength, honor
nor manliness enough to make love to a
young girl; who would not dare to take the
responsibility or supporting a wife, but who
consider that they gain some reflected
glory by nuikingone of the trldn of worship-
crs that dog thu steps of any woman wtio
attains distinction or notoriety." This may
be true of the young men who ljvo in Mrs,
June's neighborhood; although tho sugges
tion confronts us thnt perhaps the stock of
girls nrotind there might possibly furnish
an explanation of tho conduct of the "sappy
youth.'' Around hers the- charges
would be laughed at. Indeed, if manlinesH
consi.sthininakinglove,vecan justly claim fur
Cairo some of the finest sp. miens of man
hood on the planet. Simultaneously with
tho iippearencc of a good hard frost our
young men set in and devote themselves to
the pleasant task of making love in the
most miscellaneous and impartial maimer.
In the spring they haul otf and during the
summer vacation find time to ponder over
their experiences of tho winter before. The
result of this is there is very little marrying
in haste, or for tho matter of that, marrying
of any kind, hut when we do have a "sictal
event," of this nature the parties to it mean
what they say when they subscribe to that
awful sentence "tor better or for wors -,"
The little npendixes of the years to bo fol
low in the course of human events, and if all
other extraneous means fail, we know that
we have within ourselves the elements of
making Cairo a rich, pleasant and populous
city. And it is tins that inspires us with
Tiik Du Quoin Tribune says:
The Icimht.uIc Journals of this dlstilet don't

Allen is a poor man and unable to pay his taxes,
and they therefore want to send him to congress
that he may be enabled to satisfactory adjust aM

has not been collected it is the fault of the
oil'u ial whose duty ii is to protect the in

distinguish between the poorness of a Demo

U"publir-au congressmen who, unfortunately
for the eoiintiy, have yet to have the "ex"

Cut. Tiio.mvs' effort at the Athenetini
Thursday night was a failure. We do riot
say this In-caus" some people imaoi'ie it to j
be the duty of a Democratic paper to say !
so in any event, but because Republicans
and I)"inocrats alike who heard it agree in
this opinion, ('apt. Thomas is raw in his
manner, has the fault of all young speakers
in growing eloquent and declamatory
on slight provocation nnd often in the
wrong place, while bis meta
phors arc far-fetched and crude.
The captain cannot argue. When ho at
tempts to do so lie is lost. This was
noticeable in tho apparent indisposition
with which ho talked on living issues, the
embarrassment ho labored under while
il iinv; so, and the real pleasure 1m: seemed
to feel when he could in any way, without
being conspicuously abrupt, leave them to
give the gory gai merit an extra tirl. lie
tells aged anecdotes in a humorous and
spirited manner, and when we have said
this wo havo reached the
limits of just praise. Tho mat
ter of liis speech it bad
bndjud,'ing from a Republican stand
point, and if ho repeats
it throughout the district ho will be beaten
badly even by Dav is. Thu may seem a
null statement, but wo were never more
serious In our life. He starts out by tracing
the Republican party back to Adam, and
then merrily skips over its history from that
remote period to inn, when ho inform.' us
it was in its infancy. This protracted in
fant jumps into full and vigorous manhood
in 15)110, reversing thu normal condi
tions of growth, ami figuring as
a fruuk in tho development of par-
ties, Me proceeds then to rend from tho
record tho voles of Judge Allen while in
coio.'ivss, nearly a score of years ao, upon
the issues of those times, The captain, as
well us all other Republican orators and the
Brpuhlican press of this dist.'lct, can spare
themselves a great deal of trouble by not at
tempting to prove how Judge Allen voted
while in congress. We will Admit lie voted
for eveiy cveryihoig they say he did. We
will go further und concede, if they wish us
to, that he was in league with Jeff Davis,
and had a hand in infecting northern cities
with the yellow scourge in short, wo will
admit the very wortt that can be said against
the man. Democrats arc not lighting those
old battles over again, The issues of that
time are dead, ami there art! no restrnctiiig
powers left in the bloody shirt. If ('apt.
Thomas will address himself to tho ques
tions of the hour, Democrats will find time
to d sctiss with him. His declamation
against the hostility ot the Democratic
party to greenbacks in their infancy, docs
not justify the present attitude of his party
toward them, or the present position of
the Democratic party on the subject. He op
posed the repeal of tho resumption act, and
begged the national hank question
amid a confusion of rbjuros. These arc
only the outlines of his
speech, but they will convey n ft'r idea
of the general drift of what lie said. The
captain, like Davis, Ids opponent, needs
Democratic literature, and a Democratic
disciplining. It is not surprising to us
that Thomas has refused to meet any Dem
ocrat in debate.

As we predicted in our issue of yesterday,
this slander of Dr. Ranch upon our city
would obtain w ido-sprca publicity by
reason of emanating from an official source,
(if course truth will ! slow in overtaking
the doctor's calumnious assertion, but it
will prevail in the end. Tiik lti i.i.ETrx has
maintained riyhf along that our atmospher
ic conditions weie unfavorable to the prop
agation of malarial di-eascs, and cited in
proof of our pisition the experiences of
thirty years, backed up by the op'niotis of
our leading physician. Dr. Ranch, by the
irracc of Gov. Cullom president of the
state Imard of health, comes among us ami
in a visit coveting a is-riod not exceeding
t'-n da). ilistoveu that our atmosphere is
favorable to the spread of yellow fever.
We lo n-it Ix.lieve that the doctor under
stood, the full imjiort of his words when he
gave utterance to them. His mind reflected
his feelings, und Ids feelings were harrowed
mi with fright. Added to this was a de-
: -ip a wc-akn-.-s rather with really great
d K t ir- to take advantage of the pub
i lie interest centering in everything per
, t.i'Vug to the scourge, and display himself
1 in the role of a savior who had imperilled
I his noble l'fe in behalf of threatetiened hu
I maiiiiy. Had the doctor confined himself
to extolling his own cxu'aordinaiy efforts
, hep , we should not have complained much,
' although wo believe the city of Cairo, and
! not Dr. Ranch, or the lsmrd he represents,
j will have to foot the expenses of all protec
! the measures so far adopted. But w hen he
forgets to talk iilsmt himself for a moment,
and drops into saving lhin"S of us which
are already working to our injury, he
should not wince at criticisms tiiori
his opinions of our atmospheric conditions.
The experiences wo have spoken of our
freedom from contagious disease of every
form has been a matter of record for years
in the medical sen Ice of the Un'ted States,
and Dr. Ranch, while in that service would
doubtless have become familiar with that
record if ho had applied himself with pro
per zeal to the duties of his profession.
Dr. G. T. Allen, medical inspector U.S.A.,
in a report to the head of his service suid
that Cairo was the healthiest spot in the
West on which the government could erect
a marine hospital, and that during tho war
the number of deaths in- the military hospi
tal located here was less In projxirtion to
the patients treated than at any other point
in the West. In assigning the causes w liich
led to such a beneficent result, ho explains
in a scientific manner what every old und
intelligent citizen of Cairo knows to bo a
fact from experience. Says Dr. Allen :
Hut the great cuusu ever operating to free Cairo
from mlaamiulc, endemic and epidemic Influence
exists In the fact thai the water oil onu side of
Cairo, la tho Mlllp;il r'ver, I brought fiom tho

city. Tho nccenry renll of this palpable fact I

Dr. Ranch stops among us ten days, did
not see nciiso of yellow fever while here, ami

This in in Ingram is of Radical pps livl
ties, and is working to defeat Judge Allen,
and Ids slanders will not have a feather's
weight. Judge Allen lias liecn in public
ollice for years; he is not rich, as are many
Iti piiblican office holders, who sold their
principles for spoils and place; but he is
lionest, and is one of the ablest men on the
continent. The people understand this,
and the slanders put forth by his enemies
will recoil upon their own heads.
"DOING DIRTY WORK."
Ingram, a gr-enbacker nnd publisher ot
the Indiistral Tribune, is doing dirty work
for the Republicans. Before Ingram made
his p.-ctcndcd reformation ho was one of the
most uncompromising Republicans in the
country, und the fact is, be stands to-day
where he stood four years ago; he is in the
employ of the Republican par.y, but is
playiiig bis hand by putting on the dis
guise of Greectibock reformer, so that he
may catch unwary Democrats, draw them
away from the regular Democratic nomi
nees, and in this way get in liis work.
"PIRATES SAILING UNDER FALSE
The air is pregnant with the sound of
boastful schemers, working in the interest
of local political candidates, claiming that
the "National," the "Greenback" party
is the winning card, the prominent political
organization when sincerely their main
object is to deliver tho voter over to their
own local candidate, as a primary consider
ation, and secure his vote for a representa
tive or congressional candidate that has no
show for election. Thus they hope to suc
ceed in depleting tho Democratic ranks,
and adding to the Republican chances of
success. They arc pirates sailing under
false colors. They are in the main broken
down politicians, who have no expectation
to reap anything farther from the parties
that have hitherto served them, and now
ignoiuiniously desert their crafts and heap
calumny upon them.
