The case of tho city vs. the Cairo and
Vincennes railroad for fast running above
Twentieth street was concluded ln Judge
Olmsted's court yesterday. Owing to the
fact that the ordinance restricting the run
ning of trains had not been published ns
often as the law requires, the case was de
cided against the citv. An appeal was
taken to the county court.
-Mr. James Thomas and Miss Kate Mc-
Tigue were last night united in marriage by
Father OTIara. From the residence of the
biide, the wedding party proceeded to the
Delta engine house, where numerous friends
had gathered and where a social dance and
general pleasantry was indulged in. With
the hearty good wishes of their friends,
they may couple those of The Bcj.i.ktin.
Last night when the time arrived for
the republicans to turn out and hear Padu-
cah's great temperance orator, Mr. Bugby, a
few of them were found hid away among
the beer casks iu the city brewery. Tho
martial band, however, brought them out
and as they marched up the street, it was a
matter of general comment that the band
was the greatest portion of tho procession.
Shortly after dark last night two
strangers entered the jewelry store of Mr.
Steltzer, on Eighth street, and while one of
them was engaged in conversation with
him in front of the store, the other slipped
behind the counter and stolo a gold watch
and two gold chains out of the show case,
and then quietly left. Officers Schuckers
ami Lally arrested the man who engaged
Mr. Steltzer in conversation, but were un
able to find the man who stole tho goods.
Already quite a number of botrus elec
tion tickets, printed by order of the repub
lican leaders of this city, have made their
appearance. Some of them bear the name
of Chas. Nellis, instead of Jack Hodges
and others the name of John Reeve, instead
of Ham. Irvin. Surely fine democrats Nel
lis and Reeve! We regret that anything
so basely unfair should be ho soon resorted
to by our republican friends. Democratic
voters should keep a sharp lookout for tick
ets of this kind.
Saturday before last, being tho last day
set on which foreign born persons could
take out their naturalization papers, Mr.
John Reveo left for the country and sent his
deputy to attend Dan Rice's show, in order
that there might bo no one present to issue
tho papers. Mr. Reeve had heard that a
number of democrats intended to take out
papers on that day and in order to prevent
them from doing so, left the office vacant.
This fact coming to the cars of a few de'lno
crats they became thoroughly aroused and
determined to consult an attorney about
tho matter. They did so and learned that
under tho circumstances the county clerk
might be permitted to Issue tho papers.
Accordingly Mr. Ilumm issued papers to
Messrs. John Kennedy, John Darmody,
Mike McQuinn and others, and they were
sworn before Judge Baker. The News has
not attempted to deny tho other charges
against Mr. Reeve, nor will it dare to deny
this one unless it desires the proof to appear
in public print.

iwo casts oi urunKennesti one ar

Officer Hogan were brought before Judge
Olmsted yesterday, who assessed a fine in
accordance with the enormity of the crime
and the requirements of the ordinances that
were outraged. Beyond these, the police
court docket give no evidence of lawless
ness, and the atmosphere ot our various
halls of justice was free from the slighest
breath of crime,
The next grand Democratic turn-out, ns
will be seen by an advertisement elsewhere

estly desired that this meeting shall eclipse

arc already being made with that end in

pected that not less J than two thousand
torches will be iu line. lion. D. T. Line-
gar will be the principal speaker.
John T. Raymond und his comedy
company had a good audience at the Ath-
neum last night. A large number of re
served seats were sold and the scats were
nearly all filled with our best citizens. The
acting was fine and highly appreciated as
the repeated applause and other demon
strations amply testified. Mr. Raymond
in his role of Col. Sellers drew forth
peels of laughter and his mere appear
ance excited the nierryment of all present.
There is no doubt that the company as well
as the audience were both greatly
In reply to the cards published in yes
terday evening's Newsover the signatures
of Messrs. Jamieson and M.ihoney, we have
only to say that we obtained our informa
tion from their own friends, who boldly
proclaimed their determination to vote for
Mr. Nellis, because by so doing they would
increase those gentlemen's chances of be
coming jailers. We rest ourselves upon
that authority and while yielding the point,
we pray that these gentlemen may be de
livered from their zealous friends, who
seem not to be very particular as to the
characters of the means they use to further
their favorite's chances.
Democrat do not want to profit by il
legal votes. Tho democrats of Cairo are
ready and willing and anxious to join with
the republicans, and in every way prevent
the polling of illegal votes. Democrats are
anxious to have a most peaceful election,
and they tender to the republicans an offer
to mako common cause on the second of
November, and prevent any illegal vote ot
any party from going into the ballot box.
That is the best way. Bnt there is anoth
er way to keep the ballot Uix free from
fraudulent ballnts, and, if nm-vmry, dem
ocrats will resort to that way. There must
be no illegal democratic nr republican
votes polled next Tuesday in Cairo.
For many years Alexander county has
been served by unexceptionable county offi
cersby men with whom the people have
found no fault and who did their whole
duty and did it well. These men were not
the nominees of n convention in which only
a few self constituted leaders have a say so.
They were men brought forward by the
people and elected on their merits and not
on their politics, They were not forced
upon the people by a few ring-leaders as
the present candidates on the Republican
county ticket have been, but made the race
because the people, recognizing them to be
competent and taithful men, induced them
to run. And we may truthfully say here
that the people hay.1 never been disap
pointed in their selections thus made.
Every person who has ever attended a con
vention of any kind knows that tho will of
,the people is generally slaughtered in it and
that those who thus assemble seldom repre
sent tho people and almost invariably mis
represent them. But especially can this bo
said of the convention which nominated
Messrs. Nellis, Reeve, Damron 'and Mar
shal. It was well known a week before
the convention met that the ring had de
cided to palm these men oil' on tho ponplo
and although quite an effort was mado at
the tin'C by some of them to thwart tho
tricksters in their design, they succccoded
in carrying their point and now ask tho
people to support the candi
dates of their own creation
who are in no manner tho peo
ple's choice. On tho other hand, the gen
tlemen running on tho Independent ticket
have been Induced to mako the raco by
their numerous friends of both parties who
recognized the fact that they were tried,
competent and worthy and would more ac
ceptably serve the county than more politi
CLOTH IN HOUSE

The registration is completed, and we

Are we to expect that a:i effort will be
made to poll these illegal votes! We give
forth the warning now, that illegal voters
will be promptly prosecuted to the full ex

The democracy ol Cairo have resolved
not to be beaten by illegal votes : they in

Rcsch, Patrick Egiran, John Line. John
Oy, A. Anderson, Charles (later, Thomas
King, Charles F. Swoboda.
The almvecard was brought to this office
for publication, an j we most cheerfull give
it place. It is not at all to the point and
in having secured the signature to it, Mr.
Reeve ouly showed a disposition to deceive
the people. It is a matter of indifference
to the people how much the gentlemen
who have signed the above card paid for
their paper, or what their belief or disUdief
may be. The fact that they were not over
charged does, not disprove the record of the
court, which plainly says that Mr. Reeve
did overcharge Mr. Win. A. Riee, who is a
painter in the employ of Mr. B. I'. Blake.
This is purely n matter of record. Nothing
more, nothing less, and the fact that the un
dersigned were not overcharged by no
means proves that Mr. Riee was not over
charged. If there is any person who is in
clined to doubt our statement that Mr.
Reeve overcharged Mr'. Riee. they can sat
isfy themselves by examining the record
of the court or by asking Judge Baker.(who
Saturday before last rendered the decision)
in regard to it. But this is not
all. Mr. Reeve on Friday last
visited Mr. Robert Smyth aud returned to
him three dollars of the overcharges that
had been collected from him-thereby ac
knowledging that he had made and col
lected tho overcharge referrod to. After
ho had returned tho money ho asked Mr.
Smyth to sign tho above paper, but he told
him that lie would brand himself as a liar
by so doing, and would only be unjustly
shielding him. We havo spokeu to several
of tho gentlemen whose names are signed
to tho alwve (one ot whom was present in
this office last night when the card
was brought in, but who desire that their
names shall not be published), who Inform
us that Mr. Reeve, being under the im
pression that they would vote for liinf
furnished tho papers free of charge and
told thorn that all tlmsa "who would uot

le-lp Limout" would be compelled t viy
dearly for their papers.
We could ourself, with perfect consist
ency, sign a paper setting forth tha: Mr.
Reeve had never overcharged usfornanral
ization papers, hut would any suno man
for one moment believe that thai fact
would prove that he had not over
charged others or that it would pmv the
record of the court untrue? Certain not.
The publishing of the alxve caiI, as
will be seen by every person at a glace, is
a weak attempt in the wrong direclon to
shield Mr. Reeve. It is intended de
ceive the people and if wc mistake nt will
re-act upon him with wouderfl ef
fect. MR. REEVE AOAIX.
A our readers are aware we have!' late
given cvyiderable prominence in thie col
umn to the fact that Mr. John Reev over
charged a number oi Democrats forwuiog
uaturaliati'iu pipers. He did th with
the object of frightening off tho.se Demo
crats who had not yet been natumlbd and
persisted in tbi course even after !r. An
gus Leek had lea 1 the law to him n't'h is
very plain and can uot be mistake In
order to make Lim desist from ovrrcarg
ing the people iu trie future it wa lund
necessary to bring the matter I for the
circuit court, which wa.s done on Btur-
day before last, when Judge Biker daded
that Mr. Reeve should conform to tr law
as he found it, and was accordinglyrom
pelled to reach into his pocket and ittim
the mr.vr, which he had wrongful I j col
lected. The last person he returned .oney
to was Mr. Robert Smyth, whom hgave
three dollars on Friday last. But ctore
matters had come to this pass he attempted
to prevent Mr. John Darmody Irorn akiug
out papers by telling him in the presice ot
Mr. Richard Fitzgerald that theytfould
cost him seven dollars and a halt But
this is not all. While be did this hissucd
the papers tree of charge to repulieans,
whose names we have in our poi'ssion,
even telling them that he would chfge all
demiicrats as high a price as possilc for
doing the same job. The people ol Cairo
have a right to expect an explanatio lroni
Mr. Reeve. They will not le itisfied
with his attempt to deceive thenwith a
card, signed by men who it was always
known had not been overcharged. It was
never asserted, either directly or lmircctly.
by any earthly or unearthly soul, if.t these
meu had been overcharged, aud tin card is
therefore not at all t tho point. M. Reeve
should not fail to inform the peojlo if be
is . innoceut of so serious
a charge, or at least tho News
should attempt an explanation for lim. Of
course, in to-night's issue, tho Njws will
copy the card published elscwnere aud
comment at length upon the sanding of
the gentlemen who have signed it ai.d upon
the great weight which should be attachtd
to their opinions and w ill wind up with a
grand flourish to the effect that we lime
greatly injured Mr. Reeve without caise.
But let that journal remember that whet is
asserted by those particular gentlemen in
regard to themselves has never been do
med and that it is only an insult to an
intelligent public to attempt to tcccive
them in so brazen a manner.
