The young people's temperance society
had another splendid meeting last night in
the Reform hull, which was prolific of fun
and other genuine entertainment. Tho at
tendance was, as usual, good, and spoke
well for the managers of tho institution.
The interest of tho members seems to bo
undiminished, and the variety of the means
i of entertainment infinite. We were not
present, and can not, therefore, speak from
actual knowledge, but wero told that there
never was a meeting which furnished njoro
varied and better entertaiument. Tho
young people have established quite a
reputation for themselves, find they deservo
credit for their enterprise and skill in
making their meetings so attractive.
Tho board of health met yesterday af
noon to take Into consideration a petition
signed by a number of prominent citizens,
asking thai tho health officer bo retained
after to-day, and also to act upon the resolu
tion concerning tho privies introduced in
the council meeting by Alderman Swobo
da, and by that body referred to the board
of health for its opinion.
Mr. Ilartzell is making an active and
effective canvass of the district, and there
aro those even among tho republicans who
admit that his chances of election are very
flattering. Of course, tho democrats have
the very best of reasons for believing that
lie will succeed, and tho canvass, from now
until the second of November, will not bo
permitted to lag. '
With the coming of cold weather the
number of tramps increase. There nre
hundreds of men of tjiis class who come
aud go with tho changes in tho season.
They spend the winter in tho south and
tho summer in tho north. They are an un
savory mob, and we are glad to know that
the officers here compel them to move on
with as little delay as possible.
Tho ladies of the Women's Christian
Temperance Union have determined to give
a grand festival for the benefit of the club,
on the nights of the 14th and 15th of
December next. It is the determination of
the managers of the affair to make this the
festival of ALL festivals held here in years,
and they ask that all the ladies ot tho
Uuion contribute as much as possible, in the
way ot eatables, etc., in order that their
anticipations may be realized.
At a late meeting of the city council,
the ordinance regulating the running ot
railroad trains in the city limits was amend
ed so as to conform to the state laws. Un
der the ordinance as amended passenger
trains cannot be run at a higher rate of
speed than ten miles an hour, and all other
trains, switch eugine, etc., at a speed not to
exceed six miles an hour. We hope that
railroad men will take notice, and not vio
late the new ordinance, as there is a deter
mination on the part of the authorities to
see that it is enforced.
-Among the most valuablo lots in the
city are to be found in the blocks bounded
by Fourth and Sixth streets and Washing
ton and Commercial avenue; and it is a
pity the property in question should be
given over to bawds, bummers and thieve?.
The owners of this property are, perhaps,
themselves responsible for this state of
affairs, for if they were to combine and re
fuse to lease their property to the class of
people referred to, it would not be six
months uutil the whole neighborhood would
be changed, and that for the letter.
The result ot the election in Indiana,
while yet in doubt, indicates that the re
publicans have carried the state for Portir
by a small majority. The returns so far
are of so meager and uncertain a character
that this result may be entirely changed.
It will be remembered that four years ago it
was for days before the result was really
known, and it may be the same this time.
At all events, even though the republicans
may have earned the state for Porter, there
is nothing more certain than that Hancock
and English will carry it in November.
Our attention has been called to the
condition of the North side of Commercial
avenue, between Eighth and Tenth streets.
This portion of tho avenue seems to have
been given over for a place to store old
wagons, boxes, and in fact rubbish of every
character. This is all wrong, and property
owners in the vicinity are commencing to
complain about it. Besides, it is said that
more than a year ago the city council or
dered the construction of a new sidewalk
here, but so far nothing has been done.
The city authorities should look after the
matter at once.
At tho Reform Club's hall yesterday
afternoon the Ladies' Christian Temperance
Uuion met in large numbers, and transacted
some business of importance to all who are
interested in tho temperance work here.
The exercises wero interesting, and enlisted
the attention of all present. The meeting
was opened with prayer by Mrs. Sargent,
after which tho business before the club
was taken up and disposed of. Among
other matters of importance it was decided
to have two hundred copies of tho cook
book printed at The Bulleein office, mid
to hold a grand fair on Tuesday ond
Wednesday, the 14th and 15th of Decern
her. The president gave notice that the
election of new officers would tako placo
meeting after next and, after some other
business of minor importance had been
attended to, the club adjourned.
--Business in tho police courts was only
moderately lively yesterday. Magistrate
Olmsted tried four or five cases, the more
important of which were a couple of discs
tried on warrants sworn out by Oflicer Shuck
ers against parties, charging them with tho
double olfense of disorderly conduct am
resisting on officer in tho discharge of his
duties. They wero each fined 10 ani

will give two exhibitions each day, at halt
past one o'clock and halt-past seven p. in.
The troupe is said to be a good one, and
tho performance will consist of music,
pantomime and legitimate drama. It cost
the Colonel one hundred thousand dollars
to get his opera house in trim. It is in
tended for the amusement of the people
along the Ohio and Mississippi and other
southern and western rivers The people
of Cairo should not fiil to see and judge fur
themselves of the merit of this last effort ot ,
Col. Ri :e, and we hope it will prove worthy
ot success. A representative of The Bul
letin will visit the show and will mako nu
impartial report of its merits or demerits
from his stand point. We assume, m ad
vance, that the criticism will be anything
but adverse, as we know the colonel's
ability to do all he promises, and he has
promised this shall be the crowning enter
prise of an experienced life.
A MOST SHAMEFUL AFFAIR.

Humor has been rife to-day with the
names of Henry M. Kane, an employe of

Mary Grace, grass widow from Ballard
county, who recently came to this city to
reside. A long time ago, uelore tite mar

city a few months ago an intimacy has
sprung up between her and Kane tliatunai-

to light the tollowing facts and too letters

will at once proceed with the story, .urs.
Kane several days ago became suspicious
tlmt soinu such thiiiL' as an eloneiiieut was
meditated, and her suspicions were verified
when on Tuesday morning Kano leit the
city. She then took measures to rind out
his whercalxmts, and also if Mrs. Grace
had accompanied him. She found the lat
ter still in the city, and yesterday morning
while passing the postoinee saw her in mere
with a letter in her hand, and the writing
on the envelope was at once recognized as
her husband s. Shu went in and snatcneu
tho letter from tho hand of Mis.
Grace, together with one addressed
to Kane at Cairo. This is the
story told by Mrs. Kane to Officer Fred
Schroeder, to whom she also gave the
letters for publication. The woman, Grace,
was also interviewed, and stated that she
intended to join Kane at Cairo to-day. When
asked if she did not think she was doing
wrong she said sho did not care and would
run her chances of Kane's leaving her in
the lurch os he had dono his family. She
appears to be perfectly heartless and badly
mashed on tho enchanting Kane, if her
manners and tho letter written by her to
linn aro any criterion. Tho letter from
Kano to Mis. Grace is as follows. The let
ter is written with a pencil and somewhat
blurred, and several words will be found
missing. It is writteu on ono of tho Lum
ber Company's note heads with part of the
heading cut off, anil is copied just as it is
written and spoiled:

not be deciphered. As much of the letter
as could be read will be found following:
