The News calls Capt. Chas. Xellis "a

sheet, we will say that there are many peo

that Mr. Nellie acted in the important
capacity of bell boy at a hotel in this city
during the war, and that at the close of the
war he formed a partnership with Mr
Walker and thereby became part owner of
the Cairo dry docks in which he was inter
ested until a year or two ago.

They represent no party. They are the
people's candidates, and the people without
regard to politics should elect them. They
are competent. They have been tried, and
their election would be a glorious triumph
of an independent people over the men who
have resolved to force politics into home
We have until now refrained from
mentioning the fact but since the News
persists in calling Mr. John Reeve " a crip
pled soldier," and since Mr. Reeve does not
see lit to deny that he is "a crippled Vnion
soldier," we will set the public right on
this matter. We have learned to a cer
tainty that Mr. Reeve was crippled by fall
ing from a horse, while racing at a time
when no way wasln progress in this or any
other i-mirttry, and that he is not now and
never has drawn a pension from the govern
ment for the injuries thus sustained.
Had he been injured in the army he would
b allowed a very handsome pension for a
crippled limb and it stands to reason that
In; would not lie slow in his application for
it. Rut he has not n.r win ne apply lor a
pi-ilium and why not'f Because the gov
ernment ducsn't pension men who never

tained any idea of running for office while
he was bookeeper in the iron store of Mr. J.
R. Reed - he win not slow in telling his
friend that he was crippled by falling from
hor.ie, but now that he. is running for of
fice the people must be deceived and taught
to believe that he curries "rebel lend" about
with him in his body and that his precious
blood flowed freely in order that "the union
ol these states" might be maintained.
THE RECORD OF THE COURT.
Two weeks ago, when it was known thnt
a number of democrats desired to take out
naturalization papers, Mr. John A. Reeve
tried to prevent them from doing so by
overcharging them for issuing the saint"
He asked seven dollars and fifty cents lor
his work, and hence was successful in
frightening off quite a number of poor men
who were uuable to pay such an
exhoibitant price. Among those, how
ever, who paid the price asked,
were Messrs. Robert Smyth and William
Rice. Mr. Reeve collected the overcharges
from each of these men, but was compelled
to return them to Mr. Rice by the following
decision of Judge Baker, rendered on the
10th of last month:
"Ex Parte )
Motion totpiaBh fee bill.
William Rice )
Court finds that for items one and two,
twenty five cents is tho legal charge; that
for items tlvo and seven, fifty cents is the
loiral charge, AND THAT OVERCHARG
ES IN FEE BILL AMOUNT TO $1.65
AND JUDGMENT THAT FEE BILL BE
QUASHED. D. J. Baker.
October 10th, 1880."
The overcharges Mr. Reevo had collected
from Mr. Smyth he returned to him on
October 22nd after ho was compelled to
do so by public opinion. ,

SISTERS OF TnE HOLY CROSS.
THEY 1'HONOCNCIS AS WHOLLY UNTRUE AND
SLANDEROUS THE8TATRMENT8 CIRCULATED
AGAINST 8UEIUKF 1IOIH1K8 IN llEOARU TO
It has been charged by the News, and be
lieved by some people, that Shut iff Hodges
had advertised for sale and bought in tho
property of the "Sisters of the Holy Cross,"
and then charged them fifty percent, when
they redeemed it. This charge,
like every other that has bean
mado against Mr. lPidges,
not true. No such transactions took phico
between him and the sisters. Believing
thattheevil report needed refutation and
that justice to Mr. HodgcB demanded it,
we yesterday visited the sinters and were
kiudly given all necessary information,
concerning the matter and what we learnt
is embodied in their card, as follows:
"A report having been circulated, which
is calculated to injure Mr. Hodges in his
race for sheriff, to the cff;ct that ho had
sold our property for taxes and then charg
ed us fifty per cent, to redeem it, we deem
it but justice to him to deny the charge
ami pronounce it wholly untrue.
Sisters of the Holy Cross,
St. Mary's Hospital."
The sisters expressed their regrets that
any such report should have come out, and
toped that such foul slanders would not bo
the means of injuring Mr. Hodges in his
candidacy. They felt much grieved that
arty one should stoop to such means to ac
complish any end, and said that Mr.
Hodges had treated them kindly had
shown them every courtesy Bnd done them
many favors, and that anything they could

Ol'R PROSECUTING ATTORNEY.
On deciding between the two candidates
who are running for the alnive named office
the voters of Cairo and Aleiauder county
should not allow themselves to be influ
enced by personal considerations nor by
the persuasive speech or offers of future fa
vors of the candidate nor by the pecunia
ry circumstances of the man. The inter
ests of the people of the entire county
should be, and iu fact are, the interests of
each individual, and to place a man in
office simply becase he happens to be a
personal friend, without any regard to his
fitness for the place, is highly predudicial to
the general good. It must bo expected
as a matter of course that each
candidate will set forth bis claims
in the strongest manner, and in these de
generate days, use every means, both fair
and foul, to gain your confidence and your
vote. He will even go so far as to make
promises of reward for your SAMntance, and j
plead misfortune and ptvtrt; etc., etc.,
hut all this does not entitle such a mm to
your vote if he lacks the esftntial qualities
of honesty and competency. Mr. Dstnron
has done all this. He aaks you to vote for
him not because he is houet ,'and
doubt not for a moment that he h; not 1
caue he is competent, energetic and otln r-
wise fitted to serve the people ably and ef
fectually, but liecuuse ynu are his friend ;J
because he has not been your enemy, and
lastly, but not least, because he is really
hard up ami needs the emoluments of the
office. He has even gone so ur as
to ' insinuate, when beging persons
fur their votes, that he would
close an eye if they should get into
trouble and he were the prosecuting at
torney. "I may be a better friend to you
than you think if I am elected," said ho to
one voter yesterday. The fact that Mr.
Dam rou is hard up, does not argue in bis
favor, for if he hud tho ability necessary t o
mako us a good prosecuting attorney, be
would not have been compelled to leave bis
home, where his ability would naturally be
bent known and appreciated, iu order to
enter ofneial life here as a stranger. All
his claims to the office he seeks, even if
they were valid, could uot bo considered as
qualityng him for the office, for he does not
run upon his own merits but as a repub
lican upon a republican county ticket
placed there by a political party, which
was formed, not upon a question of local
import, but upon principles, which
concurn the nation at large
and which Are not only foreign to the in
terests of the county, but actually injurious
to them. Mr. Damrou was nominated by
this party because he was a republican and
for no other reason.
On the other hand, tho independent
candidate, Mr. Leek, stands before tho
people of the county independent of any
political organization, and upon his own
merits and asks the voters to consider noth
ing but his ability, his integrity, his energy
and his honesty. Choose ye between the

TO THE COLORED VOTERS.
POOD KOR THOUGHT.
Colored men of Cairo, we want to j re
sent a few facts for your consideration this
Mr. Chns. Nellis, the republican candi
date for sheriff, is the pronounced enemy of
your race. V e will prove it by produciug
tho record which be can not and dues not
In the year 1878 he was a member of the
city council and when C l. Wood nominat
ed Mr. John Glndney for the position of
city jailor, Mr. Nellis voted against him
although Mr. Gladney wu a- compe
tent to fill the position aj soy tntu in
On the same night Col. Wood nominated
Mr. Warren Wims for tho same fiosition and
Mr. Chas. Nellis voted against him be
cause his skin was black, and thereby pre
vented him from getting the position. The
present city council, which is democratic by
a large majority, has givtn Mr. Warren
Wims the position of policeman and it is but
simple justice to that gentleman to say
that he is generally regarded as one of the
best officers on our force. He ha proven
that he is competent to fill the posi
tion of city jailor Then why
did Mr. Nellis vote against him?
On the night of May 1 Uh, 1375, Mr. Nel
lis, who was then a! a member of the
council, voted against Mr. Hurry O'Brien
when that gentleman was nominated for
city jailor by Mr. H-.-nry Wiatei, ami there
by prevented his confirmation.
Mr. Nellis has repeatedly said that in
ease he wm elected sheriff r.o colored man
would find emplorta;fit aUut the court
house in aiy capacity.
Wheo UM that a number of thinking
colored ritu would V'rtc aaiajt him. be

that he could buy every d -d nigger in
town at five dollar a heal and that ho
would g';t all the colored votes be wanted
It it for you, colored men of Cairo, to stty
to-day whether he can buy you or not. He
voted against your race at every oppoi tunity,
and if yoa are thinking men you will pay
him back in Lis own com by voting against
If you would have your rigLU rcapm-.ted
vote against him and thereby teaeh him
that you are a worthy of office us he is.
Now is you oppportunity .
Mr. Jack Hodge, who m running
on the independent ticket for the
same office, has granted you every favor
you have aaked of him and has appointed
a colored man to the important p'ition of
cnunty jailor. He has not only proven by
words but by actions that he is your friend.
Self interest should prompt you to vote
for him and against Mr. Nellis. Will you
Col. McKeaig has told you that "the
time for colored men to hold office has not
yet arrived." Wc ask you in all candor
whether that time will ever coma if you con
tinue to support men who openly oppose you?
When you asked for representation Col.
Wood told you, whilo in convention as
sembled, that the republican party did not
want your vote. Will you givo that party
your vote when told to your face, by one
ol its leaders, that your vote is not wanted!

as Circuit clerk ha ha been guilty of prac
