We have been very busy, during the
last few days, m the laudable attempt
to wtjjpch the country from Repub
lican misrule and our readers have there
fore been compelled to courent themselves
with but little local news. Only one more
issue- thanks to the powers that be nnd
the agony is over, ami The Bulletin will
then again greet its readers with the nsnal
amount of news.
- A resolution adopted by the Reform
club at its last meeting, requests the may
or to issue a proclamation ordering all
saloons closed from six o'clock in the
morning until twelve at night on election
day. The law requires that all saloons bo
closed until six o'clock in the evening on
that day, but since a great deal of liquor
drinking is indulged in while the returns
ore coining in liefnre midnight, it was
thought wise by the club that the saloons
be closed until that hour.
The most vigorous prosecution is in
Btorc for those men who contemplate cast
ing an illegal vote Uy after to-morrow.
The democrats havo appointed cornmitt.es
for each polling place who will keep a sharp
lookout and cause the arrest of every man
who attempts locust an illegal ballot. They
have raised quite a sum of money and will
be liberal in using it to secure the convic
tion ol repeaters and all illegal voters gen
erally. We give this timely warning for
the benefit of a number of men in this city
whoso intentions are known.
It has been said by the republican
organ of this city by tho way that organ
says a rnat many unreasonable things
that Mr. Jack Hodges is responsible for the
escapo of the steamboat clerk who shot the
mgro roiRter hlmtit two weeks ago. It is
hardly worth while to answer this because
its untruthfulness is generally known, but
since a few persons may bo lead to believe
the statement true because nodenial of it has
appeared, we will give the facts in the catc.
At tho timo tho shooting occurred Mr.
Hodges was at the court house and
knew nothing of the utTair, ami hence
could not have arrested the man since he put
out for tho Kentucky shoro in a skiff im
mediately after the deed wus done. But
Mayor Tjiistlcwood stood on the levee t and
saw the skiff cross and wus informed ly
i Will Johnson thnt tho clerk wus in it.
The Mayor, however, only expressed i
doubt nnd although officer Wims und oth
ors were near by, waiting lor his order to
pursue, no order was given. Had Mr,
Hodgos been present tho clerk would have
been promptly arrented,
Wo call attention to tho notice of tho
Presbyterian society, published in another
column this morning. Tho ladies propose
to give one of their highly enjoyable sup
pers and social gathering at the Reform
hall on next Thursday evening, to which
everybody is iuvited. We hope that tho at
tendance will be large, for all who remain
away will ccrtaiuly hnvej reason to regret
Tho editor of the News charges that
it is self-interest alone which causes The
Bulletin to so actively work for the inde
pendent candidates that a voto for Irvin
nnd Hodges is a voto to continue The Bul
letin under its present management etc.,
etc. As wc once before said, it the editor ot
the News had beenin Cairo long enough to
vote he would know more about The Bul
letin and its affairs, and he would know
that its position on non partisan county
elections has been well defined, and the
relations of its present management to the
establishment is no secret. He would
know, as every one else knows, that Mr.
Burnett's lease of The Bulletin estab
lishmcnt expires by limitation with to-day's
issue of the paper: that every day that he
publishes it after to-day is only through
the courtesy of its owners. It is well known
that on the 1st of November, li8, Mr.
Buruett leasted the office for one year with
the privilege of two, and that he took ad
vantage of t'nis privilege and has held the
lease for the two years. The twoyeais have
expired and he steps down and out, and
Mr. Oberly, no matter how the election
turns, will step in. We have labored for
then dependents because they are inde
pendent; because they are the bct men f r
the offices and because they are net put
forward and supported by the machine poli
titions, democrats or republicans, as are
the straight ticket men who oppose them.
AVhen, a few weeks ago, we called the
attention of the public to the fact that Mr.
Chns. Nellis had failed to fulfill his con
tract with the city by which he was bound
to deliver a certain amount of gravel on
our streets, wc were told by his friends,
"Just wait. His contract does not expire
until October 25th, nnd if he ddes not ful
fill it by that time we will accuse him, as
you do, of not taking the proper interest
in the welfare of our city."
We have waited. To-day is the .'list of
October and our rcaJers know that he has
not even made the slightest effort to fulfill
his contract. The city council threatened
to proceed legally against him and
evinced a willingness to ex-
tend his time thiity days. It
gave the street committee power to ant in
the matter, but we yesterday learned from
the members ot that committee that Mr.
Nellis has in no manner concerned
himself about the affair. lie has not
only failed to give the committee an excuse
for his action, but has not even asked for
an extension ot time and the
onlv thing that now remains
to It- done is to proceed legally against
him as the council at its meeting before last
agreed to do. Of course, the river is now
too low to admit of bringing gravel hen?
with barges drawing any great amount of
water, but the river has not always beeu
s low and our readers will agree with u
when we say that since his action in this
matter is of the greatest importance to our
citv and since his coutiac.t is one tint ii
volvcsthc expenditure of between ten and
twelve thousand doll:r, he should at. least
have given it a passing thought. Purely,
if he proposes to take no more interest in
the affairs of the connty than he do'.-s in the
affairs of thu city, he should bo elected to
remain at home.
--We yesterday had the pleasure of
shaking the hand of Mr. Wauh Lung, a
Chinee from rfan Francisco, who represents
the Sam Yup Jaborer's company and is
seeking a location for a number of Chinese
in this city.' He speaks English quite
fluently, and informed us tliat he had ar
rived in Cairo on the John A. Scudder in
the morning; it was his intention, he said,
to open several barber shops in this city
one to be located up town and the other
down town, and with that end in view he
had tasen a look nt several buildings. He
had found none up town to suit, but
had secured the store room on Ohio levee,
between Sixth und Eighth streets, formerly
occupied as a clothing store by Mr. John
McNulty and would in the course of two
weeks return to this city with tho uecessury
men and fixtures to open shop. The shops
would be elegantly furnished with the
most comfortable and latest improved
furniture- and although a general prejudice
now existed against his race, he believed
that this could soon bo overcome
by their general good behavior and
accommodating disposition and that they
would soon build up a profitable trade in
our midst, especially since their charges
would bo very reasonable indeed. They
would charge only five cents for n first
class shave, ten cents for a shampo and ten
cents for hair cutting, and by paying strict
attention to business, felt no uneasiness as
to their success. He had visited several ot
our prominent business men and had been
politely received by. them snd felt much
encouraged by his visit here. Ho ha I

must coneeed the absolute necessity of'
having an honest, able and cliicicnt prosecut

situated us we are at the eoniUioncc of the
two great rivers with a half dozen railroads
terminating niwmg us thereby affording
every p.ssible facility for overuniiiug our
city with thieves and cut-throats, ueither
life ur property would lie safe atnODgit us.
Heretofore, wc have been fortunate in hav
ing the oilier tilled with men of at least
fair leg-,1 attainments, but owing to the
fact that Cairo his an unusually strong bar,
our prosctrutiug attorneys havo had great
lifliciilry, as is well known, in enforcing the
law. and protecting the people from the,
raids of confidence men and outlaws that
ire constantly coming among us. In view
of these admitted facts, can it 1 possible
that any good citizen, who really has at
hcurt the well being and 'Ood order of
society, the protection of life and property
in Cairo, de-ires to soe he position filled at

We desire ro present a few facts to our
