ing election tor Davis. A dispatch to

majority in the Flench districts in Aroos

The temperance ladies are about to
publish a temperance cook-book, which, as
its name implies, will contain a large num
ber of temperance recipes for cooking, bak

advertising medium to those of our mer
chants and businessmen generally, who, in
compliance with the solicitations of a com
mittee, will have their business cards insert
ed for a small money consideration.
General Haskell has a habit of using
plain language in dcuoutieing evil and
urging its correction, as well as in giving
praise where praise is due,which is, at times,
quite refreshing. In his speech before the
temperance people last Friday evening,
while saying some things that were neither
relevant nor strictly reasonable, he said
many others that deserve respectful consid
eration. Among these we may mention his
reference to our sidewalks and jails. The
former, said ho in substance, were, in some
places, far from a credit to Cairo. They
were wide and narrow, high and low, shaky
and dangerous in some places and non
este in others; and that his army, in
making tho rounds of our c ity had been
compelled to step high and jump down;
spread out,or crowd together,aud hold onto
one another in order to avoid falling off.
Of eur jails be said that they were a dis
grace to the city, and that it was inhuman
o placo evan the vilest wretch in any one
of the cells. It was so dark in them that
one could not in broad day light, see the
meriads of bed-bugs running around on tho
miserable beds, and that a sniff from the
outside through the iron burs of tho littlo
square openings was all the smell any man
would wunt for a whole day.
A man named W. A. Christian canto
over from Kentucky with a horse a few
days ago and traded it for a pony to the
Texan drover who has been in the ciiy for
several days and, yesterday, while appar
ently morn or les under the influence of
liquor treated the pnuy fchtiinvfuHy. He
rode the poor beuit about town and a.l the
while lashed it most brutally with a "black-
suako" whip, often striking tho animal over
tho head with tho butt end of it. Peo
ple stopped wherever ho went sympa

ken man's insane rage uttered loud com
plaints at every street corner. Tho
horse was terribly beaten up.IIo was lacerat
ed till the raw flesh appeared in many places
thick riges were visible all over his body
and his head and mouth wero swollen and
badly disfigured. Officer Schuckers finally
arrested tho man and took him before
Squire Olmsted where a number of witness
es were exaimcd and case of gross maltreat
ment was proven. The judge assessed a fine
ol twenty dollars and cost,total twenty -seven
dollars and ten cents. The prisoner at first
refused to pay, saying he would take an
appeal, but reconsidering the matter, fork

Republican mongers are still busily
engaged in the county outside of Cairo in
spreading the report that the Independent
county candidates are tho nominees of the
Democratic party. These mongers are no
doubt political pigmies, and instruments in
the hands of the Republican candidates to
carry out their designs, which are nothing
more nor less than to gain votes by deceiv
ing the people as to the character of the re
lationship existing between their opponents
and the Democratic party in this county.
Here in Cairo, where it is well understood
that there is no other partisan county tick
et in the field, than the Republican, these
false reports are not evan being circulated
much less beleived. It is only in the rural
districts where this false report is being in
dustriously circulated in the hope that those
Republicans, who are honest, and know
the independent candidates to be tho best
men, will thereby be intluened to vote the
Republican ticket. For the benefit of every
body we will repeat that there is no other
party county ticket in the field than that
placed there by the Republican county con
vention; and that Messrs. Hodges, Irvin
Leek and Fitzgerald are not running as the
nominees," nor yet as members, of
any political party, but are
independent candidates in tho
fullest sense of that term. We have no
doubt that the intelligent voters of Alexan
der county will sternly rebuke the spread
ers of these untrue reports, whoever they
may be, by defeating the men in whose
favor they are working so industriously and

AN IMMENSE CROWD OF DEMOCRATS ADDRES
SED BY HON. WM. HARTZELL AND OTHERS
A LARGE TORCULIOHT PROCESSION IN
TFIE EVENING, ETC., ETC.
The Democratic gathering, at Hodge's
Pr.rk yesterday, was an immenso affair.
Under tho direction of Gnpt. B. F. Curtis,
tho arrangements wero extensive nnd com
plete. Three flag poles had been raised
one 130 feet high and two each lOOfeethigh.
A magnificent flag and streamers, bearing
the names of Hancock and English, flouted
from each. About half a mile from the
town a dancing floor, one hundred teetlong
by fifty wide, had been laid down; stands
at which all manner of refreshments could
bo had, were erected in various places; a
string band had been engaged to furnish
music to thoso who might wish to dance,
and every other imaginable preparation had
been made to render tho occasion
one of unalloyed pleasure to all present.
The hungry had all they could
eut, furnished from a number of lgear
tables spread under the trees; those who
were inclined to "chase the, flying hours'
etc. could do so upon a large even floor,
and to tho strains from one of Cairo's best
string bands ; and those who sought mental
food.found and ample supply of that articlo
anil of good quality, too, served by Messrs.
Hartzell, Crow and Baily. The festivities
began early in the morning and lasted all day
concluding with a general dance that was
prolonged into the small hours. The peo
ple came into town from all over tho county
all day, until a crowd numbering about
twenty-five hundred had gathered, which
made good use of the various means of
amusement provided for them. Hon. Wm.
Hartzell addressed the multitude in the
forenoon, and the rest of the day until even
ing ; was spent m dancing, eating a sumptu
ous dinner and general merry, making.
About 8 :30 o'clock a delegation from Cairo
arrived, consisting of about three hundred
memWers of tho various Democratic clubs,
all uniformed and carryiug torches and
lead by two martial bands. They were met
and received about half a mile from the de
pot by a procession from the Park,
and with loud cheers, which were answered
by the visitors in tones that almost shook
tho earth. When the train reached the depot
nlldismounted, lighting their torches and,
in obedience to the call from tho drum
corps, formed in lino aud marched from
the depot to tho grounds. The procession
numbered about four hundred and fifty;
the several counts placing it at from four
hundred and twenty-five to five hundred.
Arrived on the ground, tho meeting was
called to order by the chairman, Mr. Hold
en aud Mr. P. II. Crow snokc for about
half an hour, making some very good
points and holding the close attention ot
the audience. Hon. Win. Hartzell was
then introduced for the second time to the
asseinb lage.imd I I a first
class speech. Ho reviewed the
character of tho candidates for president
and vice-president ;he answered conclusively
the charges made by Republicans that the
Democrats would if they gained control of
the govermonr, pay the southern war claims,
re enslave the negro and stop the soldiers
pension. He said that he had himself in
troduced a bill in the house ot representa
tives prohibiting the payment of any south
ern war claims and that tho bill had passed
the Democratic house but was smoothercd
in tho largely Republican senate; and that
the charge of paying southern claims could
bo more justly hurled against tho Repub
lican party. As an instense ho cited the
case of Wells, of Louisana returning board
fame, who was as poor as a church mouse
when the war began, but who had proven
to a Republican congress that he had lost
property to tho valuo of $150,
000 by tho rebellion, and
that he had always been loyal, and
his claim was allowed. This was tho stlyle
of his argument clear through, and we re
gret that, owing to lack of space, we cannot
reproduce Ids remarks at greater leugth.
Mr. Hartzell was frequently iuterrupted by
hearty cheers. He was followed by Mr. II.
C. Bailey, an employe in llalliday Bros,
coal uiino and a smart young man, who
jioko very sharply tor t quarters
8nf an hour, giving Gov. Colluui
navicular tits for his veto of
th'! truck bill and show,
ing him to begullly of other wrongs to
ward tho people, which rendered him un
vorthy ol' tlu-lr confidence and respects par
ticularly that of tho laborers.

fillABBlf TREATMENT OK A CAIRO HORSE 03 Y
. THE JUDOES.
We learn from Will Smyth, who return
ed from Joncsboro last night, that the
Twenty-fifth annual fuir of the Union
county agricultural association was an im
mense success. The attendance through
out the week far exceeded that oi any year
in the history of the association, while the
display in all the departments was corres
pondingly larger. Tho great feature of the
programme was tho trot on Friday which
arew fully eight thousand people to the
grounds. It was advertised to be a "free-for-all"
against time, square trotting only
allowed. Instead of adhearing to this con
tion of the programme the judges permitted
a "single footer'' lnuu Cape Girardeau to
compete for tho first mono) against "Silver
Tail," another Cape Girardeau hor3e and
the Cairo horse "Harry Hill." Against all
precedent and against the expressed opin
ion of nine-tenths of the people who
witnessed the race. The Cairo horse was
denied first money, having beaten "Silver
Tail" in the squaro trot, the time being 2 :24
and 2:37 in favor of the former. The track,
three times round lacks, thirty yards of be
ing a mile.
Mr. Smyth informs us that he was
treated with every evidence of hospitality
by tho people, who attended the fair and
desires us to state that the outrage is to bo
charged to the judges, whose partiality was
the only unpleasant feature of the week's

STOP THIEF! STOP THIEF I!
According to the old adage, when tho
ickpockct fears detection, he runs and
cries out, "Stop thief."
On last Tucsdaymorning Senator Blaine
telegraphed to Candidate Garfield that
Plaisted, the Democratic and Greenback
candidate for governor, was elected by
probaby a thousand majority. On Wed
nesday all reports from Maine showed that
Plaisted had more than 2,000 majority.
On Thursday Senator Blaine began to
imitate the thief in the old adage. Ho sent, on
Thursday, to Candidate Garfield the fol
lowing dispatch :
"The Indication now point unmictakably to tne
elctcion of Gov. Davi. If we could bo aurad of
an honi-el vote and boneit return from the Fri-ncb
plantation of Aroostook county, every pomibility
of doubt would bo rt-movsd."
That last dispatch is entirely "too thin,'
James Blaine. Nobody believes you.
Your character for honesty, men with your
own party, is not the. best; and everybody is
inclined to believe you were getting ready
to tamper with the returns yourself, when
you sent that last dispatch to Candidate
Garfield. The immensity with which Can
didate Garfield tampered with the returns
in Louisiana in 1970, encouraging you to
the same sort of evil doing; and in Maine
at the state election you may succeed.
But Senator Blaine, your power as a
counter-out, will be at a discount after th
November election. A Democratic congress
will count the vote cast in Maine at the
November election, and you may be sure it
will be a fair count.
