The Democratic convention held in

Mr. M. B. Harrcll, who is now engaged

with Messrs. II. L. Goodall & Co., and will,
on tho Saturday following, forward Tho
Dollar Weekly Sun to the several Cairo
gentlemen who properly indicated a desire
to become its patrons. It is a large eight
page paper, he says, and contains more
original reading matter than any other dol
lar weekly, published in the state of Illi
nois. There is a well grounded suspicion in
the minds of some of the people who lived
in the houses burned last cvuuing, that the
lire was the work of an incendiary, and a
colored woman named Mollie Bailey, alias
Mollie Bradford was the party who did the
work. The facts being detailed to the offi
cers, Mollie was taken iu charge by Officer
Schuckcrs and locked np. Mollie is a hard
case on general principles, and has given
the officers no small amount of trouble.
The police court records are dotted all over
with charges and fines against her the last
a fifty dollar fine assessed against her by
Justice Robinson on a charge of vagrancy.
She has been given innumerable "stays,"
but she never stays, but after a short ab
sence returns to the city and her devious
ways. There is little doubt from the evi
dence in possession of the oiiiccrs that the
case now agaiust her will be a settler.
Tho meeting at the Reform hall last
night was not a very large one owing to
the fact that many of our people attended
the social gathering at the St. Charles, and
others were kept away by the fire which
broke out shortly before the meetiug was
called to ordwr. Prof. Campbell
who was expected to speak
to the club last night, did not arrive tor
some cause. The resignation ot Capt. Jas.
F. Miller, as first vice-president
of the club, which was, offered
at tha last regular meeting, was referred
back with tho request that ho oontinuo in
oflkc. The chairman of the picnic com
mittee asked for more time in which to
prepare his report. He said that a check
for $99.63 had boon received from the
Cairo and Viucenucs railroad as percentage
upon tickets sold to persons attending the
Glen Fern picnic.
During tho fire last night a difficulty
took place between a number of tho mem
hers of tho Rough and Ready and the
Delta fire companies, and for a short time
it looked as though a general row or riot
might be tho result, but Officers Lally,
Hogan, Witns, Tyler, Schuckers and
Dunker, interfered and quelled the disturb
ance. It seems that the pipemcn of the
Deltas were on the roof of oue of the small
frame houses, on Walnut street, adjoiuing
the burning building, and in handling
their hose threw some water on gome of
the men at work on the brakes of the
Rough's engine. At this they became augry,
and a few bricks were shied at the Delta
boys and then the racket commenced.
Fred Steicker was hit on the baud, and
badly cut, aud one or two others were
slightly bruised. Boys, don't do it any
more! It don't pay! You ought to be
friends, aud we are satisfied that after a
9econd sober thought you will be.
The county Democratic convention
held in the court house yesterday was the
largest gatheriag of the kiud held in this
city in a great many years. The uumber
of Democrats in attendance from the coun
try precincts of the county was the largest
we ever knew. The convention was the
most enthusiastic and harmonious ever held
iu Cairo. There was not a balk nor a halt
from beginning to the end of the proceed
ings, and the very best of leeling prevailed
from first to last. In short the Democracy
of Alexander county are to be congratulat
ed over this event and have
right to feel proud. With
the same spirit of harmony aud good will,
and disposition to work and win, carried
out to the end ot the canvass, Alexander
county will certainly roll up a majority for
the Democratic standard bearers. Good
Democrats, good boys! Persevere in the
good work and the enemy will be ours as
sure as the ideof November comes round.
A daring highway robbery occurred
on the road between Cairo and Mound City
on Thursday. Miss Mary Hoyran, sister of
Mr. Dan Hogan of Mound City, and Mrs.
Kirk of Cincinnati, came to the city to do
some shopping and in the afternoon started
home. While going along the road neur
the Goose pond a negro made his appear
ance in the road, and with pistol in hand
halted the ladies and demanded their
money. Of course both ladies were greatly
frightened and unhesitatingly handed
over all they possessed, which,
owiuij to the fact that they had made a
number ot purchases, did not amount to
much. The black scoundrel then disap
peared in the woods and was lost to sight.
The ladies being terribly scared did not
pay much attention to the appearance of
the negro and are of course unable to give
a very definite description of him, and the
wretch will in all probability escape. This
is the boldest trick we have heard of in a
loug time, and hope it will not be repeated
About seven o'clock last night fire was
discovered in one of the rooms in the large
two-story frame building on the corner of
Eighth ami Walnut streets, and although
the tire alarm was promptly sounded and
the firemen promptly on tho ground, owing
to tho tinderish character of the structure,
the fire had gained such headway the
building was almost eutirely consumed.
The surrounding property, smie of which
was iu close proximity to the burning
building was all saved. This fact reflects
great credit on the firemen, for with the
high wind prevailing at the time, great
flakes of fire were carried high in the air
and scattered in every direction, aud at oue
time it scemel as though a great
conflagration was bound to take place.
But the firemen the the Rough and
Readys, the Deltas, the Hibernians, and
the Arabs, one aud all did excellent and
effective services, and deserve great credit
for it. For a volunteer tire department we
will back our Cairo boys against the world.
Sparks were carried two and threo blocks
away, and at oue time the roof of the old
Pilot house, on Washington avenue, ad
joiuing Carle's livery stable was on tire,
aud quite a hole burued into it. The prop
erty destroyed was owned by Mr. Dan
Hartman, and was occupied by a number
of negro families, nearly all of whom lost
all or nearly all their earthly possessions,
an 1 were rendered homeless. There was no
insurance on the property, but th loss to
Mr. Hartman will not exceed six hundred
dollars. The loss of those liviug nearest
the burning building was principally in
"bieaking up housekeeping." by the hasty
removal of furniture, etc., and the distruc
tiou of fences, and by water. The firemen
never did better work, and are deserving of

DEMOCRATS IN COUNCIL.
THE DEMOCRATIC MASS MEETING
AT THE COURT HOUSE YESTER
TUE LARC.KST AND MOST H ARMOXIOfS EVER
HELD IN ALEXANDER C'OINTV.
The mass convention of Democratic
voters of Alexander county which was
yesterday afternoon held at the court house
in this city in pursuance of the call of the
Alexander county Democratic central com
mittee, was perhaps the largest and most
harmonious that was ever held in this city.
There were no fault finders present und
not one word of dissatisfaction was ex
pressed during the entire meeting, and all
the motions were carried without a dissent
ing voice. Every Democrat present and
there were but few Republicans took a
lively inteiest in the proceedings, und

THE GRADUATING CLASS OF lStti.
NTKI'.F.STrXO EXKUCISKS IX THE HIUll
8CH001, KOOM YESTERDAY, BY THE SEV
ERAL MEMO EKS AND OTHERS.
As was mentioned by us several days ao
and as everybody expected, Ithe
closing exercises at the High school came
tf yesterday. The graduating class was
jmposed of eight scholars, viz: Frank
Curie, E. W. Keller, Wm. Black, Chas.
Frank and Misses Marv McEweu, Ellen
Loflin, Anna Riley and Eliza
beth Wood. The preparation for
is occasion was begun some time
ago and each of the graduates looked
forward with pleasurable anticipation to
lie close of their school life. The grown
people too, took a commendable interest in
the progress of the pupils, and the parents
of those who were to give proof of their
success in the term of schooling which they
had enjoyed, as well as hundreds of
others turned out and rilled the
capacious High school room to
overflowing with- as select an audi
ence as ever gathered there upon any occa
sion. Nearly all the visitors brought with
them large, magnificiently arranged
bouquets of the most beautiful (lowers to
behadinlJie city and vicinity, and these
were liberally distributed among the sev
eral members of the class as each one per
formed his or her portion of the exercises.
The exercises were really superior to any
of a similar character ever held in those
rooms, and reflected much credit upon the
individual members of the class, the teach
ers and the management of the public
schools. Not a hitch occurred to mar their
effort upon the intelligent hearers. The
programme was opened by a beautiful ren
dition upon the piano by Miss Nannie
Olmsted ; followed by a prayer from Rev.
Robert Bonner, and the salutatory by
Frank Carle, which was enthusiastically
received; and after this an essay, en
titled, '"Moments make the year, und
trifles, life," by Miss Mary MeEwen. Then
Mr. Edward Kelley delivered an oration
on "The Future of America." Here Mrs.
W. P. Halliday and her daughter, vuried
the exercises with a vocal and instrumental
duet, which did full justice to their reputa
tion among the musically inclined people
in the community. Miss Ella Loflin next
read her essay entitled, "The least flower,
with a brimming cup, may stand and share
Its'dew drop with another near." Then
Master Wm. Black delivered his oration on,
"The Present Age," followed by an essay
fmm Miss Anna Riley, entitled, "A hun
dred Grecian cities contend for Homer,
dead, through which living
Homer begged his bread." Music camo
next in the form of u vocal and instru
mental duet by Mrs. W. P. Wright, as
sisted by Miss Emma James. Master
Frank Carle followed with an oration
entitled: "The proper study of mankind Is
man," and Chas. Frank with another, en
titlod "Our bark is launched we must not
drift but stoer." MiM Elizabeth Wood then
read her essay aud valedictory:
"The hills are greea afar off"
followed by a vocal tat from
Mrs. W. P. Wright and Miss Hattie
McKec. Professor Alvord then appropri
ately addressed the class and the audience
and awarded the diplomas to the members
of the class. The exercises concluded
with a benediction by Rev. Bonuar. It is
no exaggeration to say that the entire pro
gramme was, in its execution as well as in
every other respect, a grand success and a
credit to all concerned. The essays and
orations displayed some very good
powers of composition, reasoning and
delivery, and proved to everybody present
that the authors were deeply interested in
their production, and well trained in the
difficult task of reading aud proclaiming
well. The music was excellent, and lent a
charm to the occasion, which was duly ap
preciated. The class gave a reception at the St.
Charles hotel last evening, which was a
brilliant affair and called out the beauty
and fashion of Cairo. We publish a short
account of the reception elsewhere this
IX THE ORAM MAR ROOM OK THE lw'TH blKEKT
The exercises in Miss K. A. Thompson's
and Miss McKee's room Thursday after
noon were of especial interest and of a very
unexpected nature to these teachers.
No arrangement had been made for any
exercises in the afternoon, but when it was
found that several members of the school
board, and a number of visitors were pres
ent a few short recitations were given by
several of tho classes.
Miss Thompson then called the "A"
class forward and gave to each member
their certificate for promotion to the High
school, as they had all pass;d the exami
nation, which by the way, was
more close and rigid than any previous ex
amination has been. The ';B" cm of
this room has also been studying hard
and were allowed to take exaraiaatiou with
the "A" class quite unexpectedly two of
them "passed" and were awarded cer'.ifi
cates with the others. ,
One of the 'visitors present then arose
and told Miss Thompson that two of her
pupils wished to say a few words before tho
close of school.
Miss Wiutie Djnning then stepped for
ward, aal in a graceful manner, addresse I
Miss Thompsou with a few well choseu
words, presenting her in the .name of the
school with a case of jewels, an elegant and
beautiful set of c uueos.
This was such a perfect surprise that
Miss Thompson was completely overcome.
Miss Nellie Fisher then addressed
Miss McKee with a few
simple, aud appropriate words
presenting her in behalf of the school, with
a case containing a very elegant cameo
brooch, which equally surprised her. Miss
Thompson soon regained her usual dignity
and composure, and in an impressive und
affecting manner thanked her pupils for
their kind remembrauee and w'uliud thou
a happy vacation. Displaying tho jewels,
she spoke of the patient and faithfnl labor
of years the workmen had spent in learn
ing to carve tne shell so daintily and skill
fully, and the labor represented by tho
beautiful design of the gold setting sun.
"My dear pupils," she said, "by faithful and
patient hours of study, are learning to
carve a future life which may bo
far more bqautifut than any
jewels, because more useful."
She hoped that this coming year
they would be still moro faithful and stu
dious than ever before, saylug that while
they were working, she should bo resting,

spoke a few fittiug words to the school, and
