has also a full length lithograph of him

anybody in the neighborhood where he
may lecture, will be able to change his non

John llogan not he of the police

tempted to take the lives of Marshal Arter
and the colored num. named John Randy
was brought before 'Squire Robinson yes-
tenlay, to undergo a preliminary evinunu
tion under the charge of assault with intent
to kill. The testimony was, in the main,
d' tailed by us yesterday. His attack upon
the negro was a most unprovoked one; and
but for the circumstance that he was
drunk when he made the assault he might,
now, be in durance vile for murder, instead
of an attempt to murder. He might, and
ut the proper time most likely
will be, held to account for his attempts
to shoot the Marshal. 'Squire Robinson
held him in a IkiuiI of sO(i to await the
action of the grand jury. Being unable to
file such a bond, ho was committed to jail.
May we not accept the effotts to put
the Tenth street or market space pump in
order, as a:i intimation that there is a pur
pose on the part of the proper authorities,
to put all the drive-well pumps in the city
in order!1 These wells, when in working
condition, are a great convenience to the
public. Horses and cattle have an especial
fondness for the water, nnd many families
that have used it fur drinking purposes,
claim to have derived great benefits tin i t
from. It is sufficiently cool, ch ar, palata
ble to many, and known to po.-sfs, valuable
n Iterative qualities. Tor these reasons it
is much its"d by "man and bea-t." As a
consequence there is a visible increase in the
volume of profanity and inteiisiiy of ill
humor in nil those nti.ghhot blinds tint are
aif'i ted by a cutting off of supplies. In
the interest of morality, then, if for no
other reason, the pumps should be fixed.

-Judge Bird, c" this city, will leave for
Washington, next wi"'k, und rumor hit it
that "something is in the wind." No Re
publican iu the Eighteenth congressional
district has performed more effective work
for his party than Mr. Bird, and no one
will take issue with us when e snv that
but for his well directed labors, his thor
ough canvas, alike among the whiles and
blocks, Mf. J. R. Thomas would not be our
Congressman-elect. Mr. Bird is the ablest
Republican jn the district, und that the
Democrats hnvo not made Inroads ii.tuthe
ranks of the two thousand .colored oters
of the district, is because Bird husbeeu
upon the constant lookout, fortifying the
weak points, und defending with the skill
of a retehin, the whole line. To
this we cnu add that John J. Bird
bus, during the past six years,
formed a mure stuliorn obstacle h the path
way to Democratic victory In this district,
than any other Republican, or half dozen
Republicans, for that mutter, tint can bo
named. Of course Democrats oe him no
good will for this, but the Republican
party does, and ought to pa; the debt.
Some of our bourbonic friends imiy take,
offense nt the reuiurk, but thut considera
tion shall not deter us from saying that had
Mr. Hird .been a Democrat, he would, cro
this, huve served a term in the Legislature
und be th, present inctimlent of un
o.'lleu, the emoluments of wliick would b
adequate to Ids support. Frou thr Repub
lican he tins received whst m other Re-
of Police Judge; und, but for tlm, support
he received from a number of Democrats,
it is by no means certain that he would
have received cym that. All this being
true, there may be some truth in tho rumor
that the Judge's visit to Washington means
something. If it doesn't, we shall "always
think it ought to."
A SANITARY Si'GGKSTIOX,
OK NO I.ITT1.K CONKKQL'K.NCK TO CAIItO, HUT
(INK Til AT IS MOllM.I.V CKUTAIN NOV TO
We are going to give good advice to our
citizens. They can take or leave it us they
please. But we give notice that if it is not
taken, ami sickness kills our people next
summer nnd fall as it did last year, wo shall
point at those' whose duty it was to act
upon our advice, and say often say with
reiteration that must certainly offend some
body: "We told you so."
We advise the immediate organization of
a Sanitary Association. The best citizens,
the poor, the. well-to-do and the richest,
should be members of it, and its object
should be to take care of the sanitary out
flition ot the city, and in this way help
H keep off any epidemic that may
again threaten the valley of the
Mississippi, and to provide for
the proper care ot the sick and burial
of the dead in the event that another epi
detnic should appear among us.
We must have no more of the dreadful
mismanagement of last year. I here must
be no more junketing quarantines no half
ouarantining no quarantine that will open
to the "sesame" ot bad women or t'Slr
persuasive people with "influent e" in the
quarantine office. We must have no more
o the pomp and ceremony of medical ig
norance publicly talking over telegraph
wires and ineffectually doing a great deal
of nothing in the worst possible manner
We must have no more of panic alarm
ing everybody and making abandonment
in sickness and a dog's burial in the event
of death a-sured facts. We must
have no more of the bravery that results
from inebriety or th" malic" that rejoices at
the ile tth from pestilence of this or that
citiz en that makes the doet-ir mean
enough to say of a death : "Good." ami the
public officer to follow tie-expression with:
"I h .p: it will go on till it kili.s sum"
other nl'the people I don't iii::-." We uni t
hav no more of that condition of affairs
that gives opportunity to nuv
one to sper u!:,V in corpses of citi"!!- as
iu cords of wood. We must have no more
of the condition of affair that mounted
Hail.'qum on a death wagon und allowed
liir.i to drive furiously lhrongh the streets
slopping at the don's ,,f Imuses in which
the pestilence bad done its work, dumping
the bodies into eoflins, throwing the i oflins
into the wagon and driving horribly away
I wiih them to unknown places where l!cy
wen hastily crowded into shallow boles
without a friend to do the last sad rites of
the dead. Wc luusi get ready for the wor-f,
and. if the worst come, be ready to receive
it with becoming dignity. This may be
done by the organization of a Vinitary A
Suppose We had org.;!iiz d .-uch a roclety

j began to grow in Cniio. The executive
; committee begun to us its Ears, it Nose
and its Eyes, and the people wre toltl
through the Associution to clean
tlcir premises. If they neglected the As
sociation compelled them to do the work
or did it lor them. The Association gave
the authorities supxrt iu making un effec
tual quarantine. The Association did
k everything to prevent the disease from get
ting into the city. But, being wise, the
AsKOviutmu )riurwul fur tho uurst. It
hired five or ten professional nurses. It en
gaged men to bury the jKusibh; dead. It
determined where they should be buried
nnd how. It determined how tho houses
in which feur deaths oecured IkhiM bu
disinfected, and how their live inmates
should be isolated nnd cared for. It was
reported to the Association that a inun on
Poplnr street hud the fever. The Asoei.
tion sent nurses to look after the puttent,
uud took care the house was isolated.
The man died and was buried with de
cency. Tfie bed on which he died and his
clothing were destroyed without parade.
This family was taken care of. Other cases
were reported, and the Association acted
quietly aid in order. Tho danger of an
epidemic became apparent, The Associa
tion said: "All who can should go nwny;"
and then with the municipal authorities be
gan to labor to stump out the disease. The
Association with tho 3,800 it would havo
had might have done all this. Indeed, if
We had bad such an Association we would
have l-'d epidemic that would have
huve any organization, and panic reigned
Well, why not such an Association now?
Don't say there is no danger.
Last year the mortil bulldozer made it un
safe to snv: "There is daiurer." but the
tables must be turned now. The man
who says there is no dangermiust be hooted.
I'ltero is danger, und great danger, too. Say
what they may, the seeds of the fever aie
still vital tit the South, and under n hot
sun will begin again their work of death.
Tin re is danger, and wo ought to get ready
for the worst. An ounce of prevention is
worth a pound of cure. A stitch in time
saves nine. A Sanitary Association ought
to be organized without delay, nnd it ought
to go to work at once. It ought to, in the
first place, put money into its purse, and
then it ought to go around saying to every
body: "Clean your premises." It ought
to be reudv for a light with
Yellow Jack or Black Bob. whenever he
may show himself.
But will anything .come of our sugges
tion? No. Kvcrvbodv in Cairo waits for
somebody else to net, and therefor" nobody
in Cairo ever Uoes anything. I he men
most interested iu Cairo say: "Why don'
you do it.'" But good men of means and
influence why don't you doit.' Why don
you get vour eyes open to the fact that
great rcsponsifdlitv rests on you: You are
little b ss than pestiferous grumblers. A
more and whine less. If you will von can
have a Sanitary A-sof. lation that will kef

In Ihe b:'st faith for the good of the
city nnd county we v.orktd hard for rail

out of hundreds of dollars, thanks to
the assistance it got from an exulted judge;
and now we are permitted to ilo for one of
them an occasional "job of printing," ut

him right. Of course Thk BnxRTix is

this kind of praise gave us "mighty poor
picking," ns the beggar said when he got a
fine bone with no meat on it.
And then, after we started, came tie
societies of tho city, like Niobe all tears,
lamenting the dear departed, desiring to ex

i.f.T!. would furnish the teurs at its own ,
expense. Cheap grief by chenp grievers
may be grateful to the manes of the honest
lead, but if ever n society of which we are
a member usks the printer to pay for the
verbal tears it believes thc.public requires
it in decency to shed for us, by all the
worms of all the graves of Christendom,
we shall turn over on our face in putrid
lisgust ut such meanness.
And then came the party committee- -
Lord bless its patriotic soul- little soul.
It saitl to us: "The' country must be
saved. Reform is necessary. Then fore
these bills must be printed." Of course we
printed them and sent in our bill. By the
ghost of Jefferson, this ruined us! The f
chairman stood on his heels, frowned like
concentrated storm clouds, and read us out
of the party. He swore that a Democratic,
printer who was base enough t ask pay
for printing done for the party was no lct
ter than a Radical and was it fit man for a
returning board member. Wc wept over
the anathema ami did without our money.
And here come s-duily all the little char
itable show's -all the goody-goody shows -all
the cries of peopp- for public things
they want -demanding of Thk Bi i.i.kti.n a
voice in its columns without money und
w ithout price. And what are we to dof If
we object, every non-paying putron will
withdraw from us the light of his coun
tenance and denounce u as a financial
cormorant -a a selfish rust ad ns hearties
us a stone. ,. n conscUcnec we are in
clined to continue to indulge in the IIIxthI -ity
of a pauper and with nothing to give,
yield to all demands upon our m-wspv
But all this must stop soiiu time; sad we
shall nt once proceed to get our epitnph
ready. -I low a ver, lo'v that we think about
it. we shall not die in the interest of any
stingy set who would be liberal at our ex
pense. If wc die at all it will be Waiisc
we didn't want to live where such unreason
