laboring men, the bill whs known as the

John T. Raymond the eminent come
dian, and his select comedy company, will
appear before the people of Cairo at the
atheneumthis evening, in MnrkTwaVs
great production, Col. Sellers. Mr. liny
mond needs no culoglum from us in
order to place him high in the estimation
of our people, for they know his reputation
and have long been waiting for an oppor
tunlty to show their appreciation of him
Wo predict that he will have such an au
dience in rcipi'Ct to number nnd social and
, intellectual standing ns will convince him
that his great talents arc duly recognized
and we predict also, that Mr. Raymond will
amply confirm tho impression that our peo
pie entertain of him. The reserved seats
aro nearly all taken, and those wishing to
go but have not yet secured scats should
engage them early to-day.
Tho democrats ol Cairo, who are not
yet registered, should not forget that to-day
is their last chance. They should not
neglect this important duty if they would
vote without impertinent interference.
Those who nre not registered will be com
pelled to stand back from the polls and run
around to have an affidavit prepared, while
their neighbors are voting. This is annoy
ing and throws delays nnd obstacles in the
way. Let every democrat see that he and
his neighbor is registered in his proper
ward and at his tine residence. A few
moments spent in looking nl'ter this matter
to-day will save n great deal ot trouble.
The republicans turned out in full
force last night, at about 7 :!J0 o'clocn. The
martial band played six or ten of its longest
nud most enlivening airs in their place of
meeting, among the beer casks of the city
brewery, iu order to Jlet the faithful know
that the time for duty had arrived. When
all wtvs ready they emerged and formed in
line in front of their rendezvous aud.htad-
ed by their martial band, proceeded up
Washington avenue.- There were, betides
the band, about ten men and boys in the
procession two white and eight colored---the
usual proportion, They made a very
good display when it is considered that
they were compelled to depend exclusively
upon this city and county for their recruits.
The News effects to believe that it is
opposed to any change because it would
unsettle business interests. And vet it is
working night and day to change the poli
tical complexion of congress, which is dem
ocratic, and under the economy of which
the so-called good times commenced. You
are a consistent fellow brother Joy in a
horn. The business scare gotten up by the
republican managers in the manufacturing
centers is simply to divert attention from
the real issues of the campaign. It is to
Jivert attention from Grantism, bloody
shirtisni and the pluuderings of the repub
lican party. The republican party
has not made an issue in tho
ampaign which it was not compelled to
abandon after a thorough discussion and
the bugbear ot a business scare on account
of the tariff they will find to be the worst
mistake they have yet made.
Mr. Jam. Mai lory, having recently taken
possession of the saloon and fixtures situat
ed on the corner of Twelfth street and
Washington avenue has taken pains to
make numerous improvements and to make
it one of the couipletest, pleasantest and
therefore most popular resort in the city.
He has laid in a new and full st'ck of the.
choicest liquors and cigars and will serve
to any who may desire them the best qual
ity of oysters or any other eat
ables in any style desired on short
notice. His accomodations and general
arrangements are calculated to attract all
who have any appetite for such dclicasies as
are usually found uihhi the taMes of the
most stylish restaurant. The saloon and
rooms have been recently newly papered
and furnished with new furniture, etc.. so
that now it is beyond a doubt what its
name implies a ''Gem" saloon. Mr. Malory
will give his pcrson:il attention to the busi
ness, and will leave nothing undone to
make his saloon a strictly first-class place,
where anybody may go and find the
best of treatment. The cullinary
lepartment is under the supervision of an
experienced cook, and tho tables will have
the constant attention of polite waiters. In
shott, Mr. Mallory aims to establish a
place, where any one can take his family to
dine nnd have an hour's plersunt recreation.
(.'apt. Chits. .Wilis, the republican's
candidate for sheriff, is a Jane Ann
would say--the most promising man in tho
community. lie will promise anything
and perform nothing. He promised the
city authorities, over his signature, that he
would deliver between five and ten thous
and cubic, yards of gravel on our streets
but failed to do so and now ho is making
all sorts of other promises
in order to gain votes.
He ptoniised Mr. John Hardin, who resides
in the country, that in case he was elected
sheriff he (Hardin) should have charge of
the jail. Accordingly Mr. Hardin rented
his farm ; vacated his premises and is now
electioneering for Mr. Xellis in the hope
that he will be appointed jailor of the coun
ty jail. After Mr. Xellis had thus secured
the vote and good will of Mr. Hardin ho
went to Rev. Jemmison, at Elco precinct,
and told him that in all probability he
would be elected sheriff and in case ho was,
he (Jemmison) should have charge of the
county jail. Of course, he ex
pected Mr. Jemmison to work for him.
ThiH Mr. Jemmison promised to do, and in
order to bo better ublo to serve Mr. Xellis,
left Elco and took up his residence in this
city opposite the court house. So much
good work done, Mr. Xellis called upon
Mr. Patsy Mahanney everybody knows
Putsey and told him that if ho would
work for him ho could depend UKn the
jail. This was, ol course a good induce
ment and Patsey is not bo blamed for say
ing "yes," and closing the bargain at once.
But wo need not continue
tho list. Wu havi merely

mode of electioneering and that the public '
may be proof against auy further promises
from the same source. Promises ,
an- cheap, but are good enough
it the hiun making them has
any idea of keeping them
A man's word should be as (jood as his
bond, especially iti matters of this kind,
which are of more than ordinary importance,
aril we regret that Mr. Xellis should havo
found it necessary to adopt such a mode of
electioneering, since it will not le apt to
nise him in the estimation of our people.
The News should lose no time in excusing
him by stating that h is the unfortunate
possessor ot a poor memory, or, if this will
not do, it should indulge in personal abuse
of us. it is its custom, in
order that the attention of the
public may be diverted from the true charge.
JitfIX REEVE'S CAPERS.
The report spread yesterday that Mr.
John It-eve was obtaining signatures to a
paper by which he expected to clear him
self of the charge that he had knowingly
overcharged certain Democrats for issuing
naturalization papers. It was said that he
had obtained the signature of Alderman
Swoboda to the paper and with a view of
learning the facts we called upon Mr.
Swuljodit yesterday evening. This gentle
man informed us that he had signed a
paper presented by Mr. Reeve but begged
to offer an explanation. He said :
"A few days ago my brother, Fred, and
Mr. Anderson, a carpenter at Hailiday
brother's mill, were speaking aIout natur
alization papers and in the course of their
talk said that Mr. Reeve was charging seven
dollars nnd a half for issuing the same.
While they were yet discussing the matter
Mr. John Wilburn, one of Hailiday Bros,
coojmrs, came up and joined in the conver
sation, when I remarked that Mr. John
Reeve ha 1 no lawful right to charge seven
dollars and a half for the papers, and no
power on earth could make me pay it.
From this remark Mr. Wilburn inferred
that Mr. Reeve had told me that he would
charge that sum, and when he went to his
workshop told his fellow workmen that this
wa th'; case. Mr. Reeve
getting wind of the matter culled on
mo and asked me to sign a paper to the
effect that 1 had never said what
was attributed to tne. This I refused to
do because, as I told Mr. Reeve, it would
make me out a liar. Reeve then left nud
on last .Saturday night, while I was ex
ceedingly busy, presented another paper
which he asked me to sign. The paper
was to tho ( fleet that he had not told me that
he would charge fcven dollars and a half
for issuing papers and that I hud not even
visited the court house."
Reporter "And yon signed this paper?"
Mr. S "Of course I did, for I had never
dreamed of asserting the contrary."
It "He could with as much reason havo
asked the man in the moon to sign it."
Mr. S "With just as much reasou, tor I
hod nothing whatever to do with tho
charge you made and my signature would
neither prove nor disprove anything. I
would not have signed it at all had I not
been very busy and anxious to get rid of
him. After 1 had signed the paper he
went to tho cooper shop and paraded it,
making the men there' believe that I had
taken "backwater" and making it appear
that I nnd Wilburn wero liars when the fact
is that neither were in the least interested in
We will but say in conclusion that Mr.
Reeve can doubtless obtain five hundred or
five thousand signatures to a papor, setting
forth that tho undersigned ncvor heard him
say that ho would make tin overcharge
ho has made, and yet their signatures
would not prove tho record of the coutt
untrue; nor wonld it disprove tho fact thst
he made these charges after Mr. Leek bad
road tho law to nitn; nor would it disprove
tho fact that ho acknowledged his guilt by
returning to Mr. Smyth three dollars of
tho overcharges made, after lie win com

pelled to do so by public opinion. But
tnis Is not all. We have in our possession
the proof that ho told certain parties in this
city that he intended to charge democrats
as much as ho could for tho papers and
charge republicans nothing. But not alone
this. Wo havo in our possession the names
of republicans whom he really mi) natural
ize for nothing and we warrant tho public
that whenever they are afflicted with his
"card" we will amuse htm by knocked it

It is to be regretted that a man elected
by the pcoplo to serve tho people should
thus lay himself liable to charges of such
THOS. W. HALLIDAY FOR COUNTY
Mr. Thoa. W. Halliday's announcement,
as a candidate for county commissioner,
will be found in this issue of The Bulle
tin. In compliance to the expressed wishes
of the people he has lecn a candidate from
the opening of the campaign, and has so
informed tho general public from the
He is, as is known to all, a farseeing
business man who has ever industriously
an 1 successfully worked for the best inter
est of the people. He is a man who stands
in no need of compliment from us, and
whose actions speak louder than words.
Through his unceasing and well-directed
efforts, he has succeeded in raising our
county orders from forty cents to ninety
cents on the dollar, and to par, and firmly
establishing the formerly shattered credit
of the county. Heretofore the small tax
payers could not afford to employ an at
torney to resist the payment of the railroad
tax, and through his efforts they havo reap
ed the same benefits enjoyed by the more
wealthy, who havo escaped the payment of
the tax through legal action. Owing to his
watchfulness.no judgments of any kind,
have been rendered against the county for
three years, nor have those parties who
obtained judgment for railroad bond in
terest prior to that time, been able to ob
tain a writ of mandumus to compel the
levying of tax to pny such judgment.
This is by no means all lie has done. He
has, in various other directions, rendered
services which have resulted in incalculable
good to our people and which we will take
occasion to mention in tho near future.
He is the man, above all others, to whom
the county i endebtcd lor its present pros
perity; and it is clearly to tho interest of
every man iu the county to vote for him on
THE VERDICT OF THE CORONER'S
Tho following is the verdict of the coro
ner's jury which yesterday enquired into
tho death ot young Thomas Jones who wan
killed on the incline of the Illinois Central
railroad on Saturday Inst:
"We, tho undersigned jurors, sworn to en
quire into tho denth ot Thomas Jones, aged
18 years and 11 mouths, from the evidence
on oath do find that he enmo to his death
on October 23, 1880, from internal injuries
received by falling from a coal car on the
cradle of the incline switch of the Illinois
Central Railroad company, at Cairo, Illi
nois. That said fall and accident was
caused by reason of tho breaking of tho
coupling of the cars attached to tho engine
io. ?2, belonging to said company, and
that the Illinois Central Railroad company
aro respousiltlo tor tho nccidcut nnd death
of tho deceased, by reason of not having
safe or extra couplings In Addition to the
ordinary coupling of cars- - the grade of
said inclinti switch being so great that
tho ordinary oar couplings have heretofore
frequently proved insuinoient.
