ing to effect a coalition with them for the
purpose of defeating the election of the
Republican presidential electors next fall.
Such coalitions, however, generally turn

Mr. Casper Yost, one of our census
enumerators, informs us the work of taking
the census of Cairo will be a two week's
job. The taking of the census is a skw
job, but what makes it especially tedious is
the fact that the law requires that the
enumerator's report shall show where the
parents of all our citizens were born.- The
enumerator, of course, calls at the resi
dences of our citizens.Jaad nine times out of
ten finds only the wife at home the hus
band being absent on business. As a gen
eral thing the wife is ignorant as to where
the parents of her husband were born, and
he is thereby forced to make a second call
at the house after the wife has ascertained
the desired information.
A disgraceful scene occurred in
Squire Robinson's court yesterday after;
noon during the trial of Lewis Birker, the
confidence man, in which our city attorney,
Will Hendricks, and his brother George,
figured prominently. The former appeared
for the prosecution and the latter for the
defense, in the case mentioned, and bad
proceeded amicably until Officer Schuckers
took the st3ud and testified. It
appears that, in giving his
testimony, 05cer Schuckers sail
something that was damaging to the
prosecution, and thereupon the city attor
ney accused his brother of having drawn
the damaging statement from the officer
without authority. This George Hendricks
denied in language more positive than ele
gunt, whereupon Will Hendricks advanced
upon him with a chair raised in the air, ev
idently with the intention of striking him
with it. Before matters had gone this far the
Squire had, called them to order, but hav
ing paid no attention te him, he now asked
Officers Siiuckers and Dunker, who were
present, to arrest them. In this manner
quiet was restored which, however, only
lusted until the case before the court was
disposed of, after which the two brothers
resumed their high words on the sidewalk
in front of the office, and being there per
mitted to have their say, soon cooled down.
The disciples of the humane Bergh
might find employment in enquiring into
the condition aud treatment of the horses
and mules employed oa our streets these
hot days. The close observer would be led
to believe that some of our teamsters, in
the intensity of their efforts to make money
forget that tho brute creation has somo
claims on the tender mercies
of man. One sometimes sees
animals, that are evidently
underfed, drawing overloaded wagons.
Nor does age command the respect that is
due to them. Some teamsters keep at
work horses that arc only one removed trom
the boneyard. It is unreasonable to cal
culate on more than a limited endurance
on the rough service which a dray horse
has to perform; and, after tho limit has
been passed, the poor animal should bo
sold for what it will fetch. It is easy to
understand thut draymen, like all other
teamsters, are anxious to fill their pockets
with the "almighty dollar;" but no good
end can be subserved ty maltreating dumb
animals. Wo know that, as a rule, the
teamsters of Cairo treat their stock well;
but there are somo exceptions, which are
nonetheless exasperating because they are
rare. 1 ,,

ciently large to justify the beginning of

some of the material has already been laid
upon tho spet, and work on the foundations
will begin immediately and be pushed for
ward as rapidly as Mr. John Madden, the
contractor, can do it. Tho building will
be two story and in the shape of a cross.
The lower floor is to be divided into five
departments, 24x33 and 24x39,
to be used respectively as parlor, reception
room, and school rooms. The upper
story will also be used purtly for education
al purposes and bo variously
arranged as the convenieoce of
the Bisters and scholars may direct, The
house is to cost between seven and eight
thousand dollars, and it is expected wili be
finished by next September. It is to have a
belfry for the bell, and will be handsomely
finished internally and externally, and al
together will, when completed, be a credit
to the city and a beautiful monument to the
enterprise of the sisters of Loretto.
In various parts of t,he Union the news
papers ore discussing the subject of the
early closing of business houses during the
dull summer months. Many strong reasons
are given for such a course,among them ona
that should have some weight with the peo
ple of this city that is the effect of early-
closing as a sanitary measure. We
have incurred a great expen?
to ciear Cairo of nuisia
ses that pollute the air and poison the
water, but we have paid little attention to
the personal habits of our citizens. Taking
this subject of keeping open places of busi
ness during the hot weather the same num
ber of hours as in winter, we find that cus
tom is clearly against the sanitary rule. Ia
a close atmosphere, denied the relaiition
oppressive heat makes requisite, wearied,
fagged and languid, the business ma's i
duties of the day are gone through listless
ly and with effort. Under all this unwise I
and unnecessary confinement, the bodily
vigor decreases, the whole vital energies
are lowered, there is not robustness enough
left in the system to enable it to repel
noxious influences and occasional exposure
to unfavorable sanitary conditions. In this
reduced state the body becomes an almost
unresisting victim to disease, and sick
nesses that might simply affuct individuals
become prevalent, and if malarial influences
prevail they prove, to a debilitated, wearied,
spiritless population, epidemic, so that the
suffering and death that ensue are, caused
not more by the active ag,mt than by the
sunken, languid, worn-down condition in
which it finds t great portion of tho popu
lation. The laws of health anil the nature
of this climate require that the hours of la
bor should be restricted in the summer
months. We can violate the requirement
and defy the rules wisdom dictates, but we
do so at the penalty of our own loss. Why
should full hours be kept through June,
July and August? It is the dull season;
and all the business there is can be done in
fewer hours than at the busy period. Why.
then, should we debilitate a largo portion
of our people by confining them unueces-
arily? Let us act with prudence on this
point, and fuithcr tho work of sanitation
by closing early iu the evenings.
Among all the great speeches which
were made by the leaders of the Republi
can party at Chicago, The Bulletin is in
clined to reckon that of Mr. Flann.iguu, of
Texas, as entitled to the highest praise.
Mr. Flannagan's succint and comprehen
sive statement of the end and object of the
great Republican party, has never, we be
lieve, been equalled in any national con
vention of tho party since the party began.
Indeed, we cannot help but think that the
convention ought thcro and then to
have nominated Mr. Flannagan for Presi
dent, lor he showed a greater knowledge of
the true principles of the party, aud more
correct views or what the party expects of
its president, than the duke of America,
down to William Windom. "We want
the offices," said this great and shining
light of the party of lofty ideas. "We
want the offices; we don't want no civil
service reform. If Republicans are not to
have trie offices, what arc wo here tor?"
Could anything bo neater than that?
Could tho very pith and essence, so to speak,
ot Republican principles, bo Btated so com
prehensively of in fewer words? What was
tho convention for, what all the worry and
toil and trouble and wear and tear of mind
and body, to say nothing of the expense, if
the illustrious patriots were not to get of
fice? No wouder Mr. Flannagan was dis
gusted wheu a , sentimental delegate
from Massachusetts who had imbibed
heretical ideas from Harper's Journal of
Civilization, or was a college pressdent, or
a "dim litterary fellei" perhaps, inti

Mr. Flannagan sat down on that Massa

service reform indeed! The true and only
object and purpose of the seven hundred
and fifty-six delegates who sweltered an 1
swore and fought and yelled through a
whole weary week in that convention was

that the party wu ia favor of dividing with
the Democrats was insulting in the ex

The residence of Mr. C. R. Woodward
was yesterday evening tho scene of a most
delightful entertainment. Miss Tennie
youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wood
ward, gave a party in honor of two of her
young hdy friends, the Misses Daniels and
Clark, and a more pleasant social gather
ing was never had in Cairo. Nearly all the
fashion aud beauty m the city was there.
The residence and grounds were illumi
nated aud sent brilliant streams ot light
tor squares along the several streets. Mr.
Woodward is tho fortunate possessor of one
of the finest residences in the city so far us
finish ami convenient arrangement is con
cerned. He has devoted especial attention
to the grounds uround the residence and
unlike the many who'look upon a vacant
lot by the side of a residence as fit only for
raising vegetables or a horrible mixture of
common Mowers and weeds, he has trans
formed his vacant space into a beautiful
play ground, for the recreation of his fam
ily and friends. It is enclosed, with tho
residence, by a white picket fence, along
the inside of which shrubbery and various
plants are appropriately planted and grow
luxuriantly. A number of trees, among
which is a weeping willow of symmetrical
proportions and grand appearauce,which was
planted by his oldest daughter, now mar
ried, all'ord ample shade during the sum
mer days. The center of the yard, for u
squaro ofBbout one hundred by fifty feet
is firmly packed down and covered with saw
dust so as to form a solid footing for
dancers or croquet players, for which pur-
noses it was on this occasion used. The
guests were all delighted with the arrange
ment and mado use of a' I the numerous
means of amusements furnished them by
the thoughtful hostess and her parents. A
string band was on hand to whoso sweet
strains their feet kept time tor
hours, after which refreshments, various ia
kin l, abundant in quantity and exquisite
in quality, were served and properly dis
posed ot by the happy merry makers. The
event arlurded an opportunity for unbound
ed amusemeut au 1 was a memorable one to
all who participated.
