The city of Cleveland licenses her news

pers with those badges on without having
paid their license fees, they will be arrested.

The Republican Advocate, published
and edited by a colored man, speaks thus
of our fellow citizens, Hon. John J. Bird :
"Judge John J. Bird is in the city, anil is
taking a lively interest in state and couuty
politics. He is an enthusiastic supporter of
John H. Oberly for secretary of State and
has excellent reasons for so doing, The
Judge wields a largo vote in this state, and
as the honesty of his convictions can not be
impeached, he will necessarily have a large
Two colored men, named Milt. Mul-
phins and John Collins, had quite a skir
mish at the corner ot Fifth and Commer
cial yesterday forenoon, which resulted in
Mulphins having his lower lip bit through,
and Collins having his shoulder dislocated
by being struck with a brick. They were
each lined the usual amount, and then
marched to the office of Dr. Parker, where
they received the necessary attention, and
then confined iu the city jail. After a
short stay Collins was released on the order
of the mayor.

Joe Robarts, the editor ot the Pulaski
atriot and dabbler in Alexander county
olitics, occupied the greater portion of
our sidewalks Sunday, lie came down to
take a look at a suit of clothes, which one of
onr tailors made to order for him about
four weeks ago and which have not yet
changed hands, because there has been no
money in sight for the tailor. We can
sympathize with both ot these gentlemen.
With Robarts, because he needs the clothes,
but can't getthem without money, and with
our tailor, because ho will never find
another customer whom the c othes will fit
unless it bo a toad.
Voters should not forget that to-day
is the day to register. The following named
gentlemen, who were appointed judges of
election for the ensuing year, by the coun
ty commissioner's court, by virtue of said
appointment, will act as judges of registra
tion to-day: First Cairo precinct Geo.
W. McKeaig, Thomas Wilson, Joseph I.

Fifth Cairo precinct Chas. Lancaster, J.C.

these gentlemen will again meet on tho
20th inst. for tho purpose of revising and
completing the list.
The street committee met in the council
chamber this afternoon and considered tho
petition of the Illinois Central railroad com
pany, which prayed that the company bo
permitted to lay a track in front of its late
ly erected freight depot, which is to extend
from Second to a little aWove Fourth street.
The matter was fully discussed, but no de
cision was reached. A petition Imm the
Lofllcors of tho Cairo street railway com
pany praying that the company bo granted
the right to construct, operato and main
tain a horse street railway over portions of
tho following stroeta, was also read : Oa
Fourth stroet, from tho Ohio levee to Wash
ington ftvenue; thenco on Washington
avenuo to Twenty-eighth street, and on
Twenty-eight street, from St. Mary's Park
to Commercial avenue. Tho committee do
cided that an ordinance by which their
prayer bo granted bo drawn up.
Sanders, tho democratic candidate for
governor of Indiana, is quite confident that
ho will be elected to-day. He says that ho
will receive many greenback votes and that
working men will give him their support,
becauso ho has always stood by them, and
guarded their interests. He is of tho
opinion that his majority will not fall be
low seven thousand and five hundred, but
since the republicans havo stocked the
state with negroes from across the river, it
will be a surprise to most democrats If he
carries the state at all. The Bulletin
will publish tho dispatches in to-morrow's
issue, in order that our readers may be
promptly advised of the result.
The democratic meeting was held in
the court-house last night, instead of
the Tenth-street stand, because of tho in
clemency of the weather. It rained nearly
all day, and threatened to do so last night,
but that did not pre?ent a large crowd
from gathering in the court-room. The
"Roosters'" martial band, with torches and
uniforms, marched from Eighth street to
the place of speaking about 7:30 o'clock,
and, by their enlivening music, picked up
a very nice little procession as they went.
Arriving in the court-room, they made the
building tremble for about twenty minutes
with the sound of horns, fifes and drums, and
then tho speaker of the evening, Hon. Law
rence Harmon, democratic candidate for
attorney-general, began his speech to a
large audience, which was composed of in
telligent persons ot all political parties.
Mr. Harmon is a man of no common ability,
which his speech amply demonstrated. He
gave attention to many in' portant questions
and addressed himself to persons of every
shade of politics. His argument was con
clusive upon every point; his stylo was
pleasing and convincing, and it was plain
ly visible that the general effect of his ef
fort was everything that could have been
lesired. It was pronounced by some, who
heard it, to have been tho best politi
cal speech delivered here during this cam
paign, and sure to gain for Mr. narmon
that respect and confidence, which is es
sential to his election by a good majority.
There is an old adage that "all is fair
in love and war," and it has been used to
excuse countless breaches of trust, betrayals
ot confidence and violations of principle.
t is a dangerous doctrine at best, ami it is
well that it is nol generally accepted by
decent men and women as fixing the stan
dards of action either in love or in war.
But when an effort is made to make a
practical application of this pernicious doc
trine, in politics, every honest man and
patriotic citizen must revolt against it with
out regard to party considerations. We be
lieve that they will do so. However much
professional slanderers may rely upon in
tense partisan predjudice to applaud and en
dorse their dishonorable acts in their con
tests for position or patronage,
we do not believe that the
thinking men of Cairo, for instance, will
countenance the recent disgraceful attacks
of the republican organ of this city, upon
men for no other reason that they are ac
tive workers for the success of the demo
cratic party. Such men ns Walton Wright,
William Cundiff, Lon. Daniels, Capt.
Shields and Judge Green have been sub
jects of misrepresentation and abuse of the
vilest nature, not because they interferred
with the rights of any man; not because
they are office-seekers for they are not
but because, with due respect for the op
posing party, they dated to express their
political opinions, and nothing more. We
have, ourselves, said many hard things
about men and things, during our connec
tion with The Bulletin in our present
capacity, but have ever given the public
our reasons for so doing, in order that they
might be able to judge whether or not
what we said was merited. Tho editor of
the News should break himself of this
habit. If he would abuse people he
should give tho public tho reasons for so
We publish in another place this morn
ing an extract from tho "Republican Advo
cate," a republican paper published in
Chicago, Ills., and edited by a colored man.
Tho writer has become awakened to tho
fact, so often urged by The Bulletin
upon tho colored pcoplo here, that tho
negroes arc being treated by their republi
can friends (?) ns so many pack mules upon
which to rido into place and power, then to
bo discarded as being unworthy of any
compensation, in tho form of official honors,
lor such service and, if they humbly object
to such treatment, to be told that "the timo
for tho colored man to hold office has not
yet arrived," and that, unless they aro will
ing to serve submissively, "their votoB ure
not wanted at all." If the colored men of
Cairo and Alexander county imagine that
here ulono they arc not recognized by their
self constituted political guardians, they
uro woefully mistaken, for tho
stern cominan i of tho republican masters
to vote tho "straight ticket," and their
scornful laugh ut the meek suggestion of
the obedient colored Voter that his services
limy be recognized, are heard over tho on
tiro st ate save, all over tho United Slates,
wherever the negro Is blind enough not to
ceo tlio extreme selfishness of their purpo-
I K : i : '
ses. But in some places this state of af
fairs is gradually changing. The more in
telligent among the colored voters are
slowly, but surely, becoming aware of the
real motives which prompt all the nice
promises and which underlie nearly
every act of extreme friendship,
which comes from their smooth faced keep
ers. They know that their familiarity with
the colored man shows itself only just be
fore an election, and that their interest in
his welfare is only a shallow pretence,
which will all pass away with the present
campaign only to appear again at the next.
If all the colored people would but profit
by the example of the more intelligent
among them, they would soon fiud them
selves represented in every branch of the
government, municipal and state a well as
-The work of preparing the ground to
receive the stone foundation fr thencwcle
vator of the Illinois Central railroad com
pany, was not interrupted day before yester
day by the tact th at it was Sunday. Enter
prise seems to have no time to waste in the
consideration of anything but present in
terest. The site of the great elevator that
is to be erected by the company presented a
busy scene, and the work that has so tar
been done conveys some idea of the immen
sity of the undertaking. Beginning just
above the old elevator, and extending up
along the outer side of Ohio levee for about
five hundred yards, a solid roadbed, about
twenty-five feet wide, has been made, pre
senting, with the Ohio levee, an even sur
face about twenty-five feet wide. At the
end of this stretch ot newly made embank
ment, a space one hundred feet wide and
about two hundred and fifty feet long
has been cleared away. It is about fifteen
feet below the top of the levee, and is the
spot which is be occupied by the main
momth structure. Being below high water
mark it is necessary to render the ground
secure against the action of the river, when
it rises, before tho foundation for the build
ing can be safely laid. For this purpose
trees are felled, stripped of their crowns
and, cut to the length ot from twenty-live
to thirty-five feet, are brought here on fiat
cars and being cut to a point at the small
er end, are hoisted to perpendicular posi
tion, and driven into the ground to within
one or two feet of their full length. This
work is done by steam. One ordinary
pile-driver and one steam hammer, weigh
ing about two thousand pounds
each, are raised in derricks and,
together with the necessary steam engiue
to operate them, arc each placed upon mov
able carriages, constructed of heavy tim
bers. Through the instrumentality of ropes
and pulleys, these carriages with their im
mense weight aro moved to any position
desired by their own machinery, and after a
pile has been raised to its place under tho
hammer, each stroke of which shakes the
earth for quite a distance around, not more
than three minutes elapse before it has al
most entirely disappeared iu the ground,
unless some unusual obstruction is met
with. About one hundred and fifty of
these piles have been driven and tho laying
of the massive stonu foundation has been
begun. This foundation is about four feet
,n diameter, is composed of stones one and
u half feet square, ami three to four feet
long, evenly laid in mortar upon heavy
timbers previously laid upon tho piles,which
aro all sawed oil' to an even
heighth about half a loot above the ground,
About thirty-five men are busily engaged
in unloading and preparing the piles, at
tending to and operating tho hammers,
sawing off the tops of the piles as fast as
they urn driven, and doing various other
work. Tho teams were not at work as they
are on other days, but nut becauso their
work is done, for the embankment upon
which the several tracks that aro to pitfs
through the elevator are to bo laid, is not
yet finished. Ojiito ft number of our cltl-Z'.-ns,

NEW READING OF 320.
The cabalistic figures, 320, seem to be
capable of endless "new readings." ' As
originally set forth, they meant the f J29
which Garfield was paid by Oakes Ames as
tho final "divvy" on tho crenit mobilicr
stock. As interpreted by the postmasters,
they mean the defeat ot Garfield, while at
the same time they declare a vote for Han
cock is "treasonable and revolutionary ;"
and now comes another new reading, as
follows: Garfield 320 will get, it is con
ceded, the electoral votes of the following
Rho lu Island 4
Weaver, the republican greenbacker, will
get one electoral vote, which makes a total
of forty against Hancock; subtract 40 from
300, the total number of electoral votes, and
it leaves Hancock 320.
