As often as a good troupe, theatrical or
otherwise, visits Cairo, the necessity tor a
new and spacious opera houso becomes
more evident. Tho peoplo of Cairo arc de
cidedly a theatre-going people, and never
fail to give a rousing support to any and
every sctor or troupo of repute that comos
along. Our present building is entirely
too small to properly aecommodato the audi
ences that invariably greet such troupes
and is also too small for tho actors them
selves. A large opera house would be a profit
able investment to anyone and, now that
wo arc about to have onn of the most com
plete and magnificent hotels in the country,
i. e., tho IJallidiiy House, a gmnd opera
Iiousj would be a very proper accompani
ment. Two attractions like these would do
J much toward giving Cairo a good name
abroad. The Halliday Bros, would bo the
proper men to take this matter under con
sideration. Reliable laborers are scarce in tho city
and there is no reason why ablebodicd, in
telligent men, who ore willing to make an
honest living, should go about our streets
idle. The contractors tor the work at the
elevator yesterday oijered good wages and
searched the town over for laborers, but
did not succeed in finding the number they
The ladies ol the Presbyterian church
will spread a sumptuous repast at the Re
form hp 11 between twelve and one o'clock
to day, and cordially invito everybody to
be present and partake. Owing to the wet
and generally disagreeable weather last
night, the attendance was not very large,
but we hope every business man, clerk and
all others will visit the hall at noon to-day.
The charge is only twenty-live cents.
Tuesday hist, Johnnie Feitli presented
Mr. Oberly with a handsome cane of fine
workmanship ingeniously constructed ol
many different kinds of colored wood and
silver mounted. In presenting it to Mr. O. i
Johnnie said that he did so in commemora
tion of his first vote., which he had that day
cast for Hancock and Oberly. Since our
reporter was not present at thcju'csoututioii,
Mr. O'oerly's reply must be lost to the world,
but we know it could only have been ap
propriate and expressive of a true apprecia
tion of the gift.
The supper nf tin- Ladies" Presbyterian,
society given at temperance hall hist night,
was a magnificent one, though not very
largely attended because of the bad weath
er. The tables weie spread with nearly
everything that could excite the appetite of
the guests, and the various other .Attractions
were positively irresistablc. For the ac
commodation of those who were prevented
from coming last night, a lunch will be
again spread at the hail between twelve and
one o'clock to-day, when wc hope that all
who can will be present. The ladies might
to succeed both financially and otherwise,
even though the weather be a little uuta-
vorable. Their enterprise and perseverance
deserves cvty y encouragement . '
From the returns so far in, we see that
Mr. Oberly has run considerably ahead ot
his ticket. Here in Cairo he is ahead nearly
one hundred; in Springfield ho ran ahead
over two hundred, and fmni other
points the news is equally as good. This
fact is certainly complimentary to Mr.
Oberly and is no doubt gratifying to tiiui
as well as to his many friends. We
believed from the beginning, as did many
others' with us, that Mr. O. was one of the
most, it not the most popular :uan on the
democratic state ticket, and the result has
more than verified oui impression. Mr.
Oberly and his fellow Cairoites certainly
have reason to lie proud ot such a flattering
recognition of his worth by th' people of
Eight street is in an almost imputable
condition. The constant use and constant
rains have cut it up badly and it is hardly
anything but a mircry bottom, where pools
of water anil ruts and hillocks abound,
and where lieasts of burden are iu danger of
breaking their limls ami nearly exhaust
themselves in drawing atter them an
empty wagon, which moves along through
the thick black mass very much like a
teatcrinif Ixiard or a rickety Vark on u tur
bulent sea of mud. Yesterday teams were
at work hauling buck to fill up the holes,
the dirt that had previously been taken
away at the city's expense, in order to pre
pare tin; street for graveling. The city is
thus put to a double and perhaps treple ex
pense in order to keep the street passable
and in a condition to receive the gravel
whenever his august majesty, Mr. Nellis,
sees lit to comply with his contract, aud
condescendingly furnish the necessary
gravid. But why the city council should
be so awestruck at Mr. Nellis' piwmtory
refusal to comply with his contract, and
either out of kindly consideration or fear,
remain entirely inactive iu the tnatter,
puzzles us considerably. However wu
must console oursclf with the thought
that the ways ol od and city councils are
inscrutable, and we suppnso that the peo
plo must patiently suffer nnd bide their
time until their representatives muster up
courago enough to act, or until Mr. Nellis
pleases to fulfill his engagements.
Since tho ImVaua election, the imprrs-
sion gradually took hold of Cairo demo- j
crats that the republicans would be victor
ious, nnd they were therefore not greatly
surprised at the result, which is an over
whelming defeat of a gallant soldier,
whose shield is as bright uud spotless as it
is unbroken, by a man charged with cor
ruption by the republican press of 1873.
The defeat indicates cither that the repub
lican party is simply a creature of preju
dice, blind to every honest impulse that
may conflict with tho triumph of its can
didates, or that tho people have lost tho
power to change tho government at their
pleasure. Probably it indicates both. A
party which indorsed and applaud
ed tlie criino of reversing the re
suit of last election cannot bo
expected to bo scrupulously dehcato in
drawing fine moral distinctions. A party
which can be dragooned into tho encour
agement of revolutionary methods to defeat
tho popular will four years ago conuot rea
sonably be expected to be fastidious uow.
Thoollliw holding clement which up
pressed the better sentiment out of tho par
ty then has not relaxed its hold. It still
bentrldo the land from ocean to ocean like
a great Colonius. Its ramifying influence

are so various, infinite and powerful that we
greatly doubt the ability of the people to
dislodge them. Like the old man of the
sea upon Sinbads back, they cling around
the necks of the people aud cannot be shak
en off. The result can be briefly told. A
solid North confronts a solid South. Sec
tionalism with its ten thousand resulting
evils has become the only living vital thing
in our national politics. The solid South
wil! put itself on the defensive. Tho
bitter feelings of the war will bo renewed
and intensified. The causes leading to
this effect were few and easily told. The
prevailing good times helped the repub
licans. The lalsc; and fictitious tariff issue?
hurt the democrats. But over and above
everything eNe, was the power and prestige
of the otiiee holding class. To them is
Garfield indebted for salvation, and to them
must he render a proper tribute of grati
tude, "(iive unto C;car the things that are
Ciesar's." There is ono feature of the elec
tion upon which democrats and n publicans
alike may congratulate themselves and the
country. It is that, the result is so pro
nounced as to remove all shadow ot doubt.
The country can now settle down to work

will be found a uotice signed by Newton
R. tWy, president, and John IJ. Harman,
secretary, requesting a meeting of the cor
porators an ! directors of the Cairo and
Mound City railroad company, in this city,
on Friday next. Probably most of our read
ers were unaware that such a company had
an existence, and since their curiosity is
doubtle's aroused we will attempt to en
lighten them. The company ob
tained its charter February ICth,
1 Wi, and is composed of somo of our old
est and most substantial citiz ;ns. Under
tlit charter the capital stock of the corpora
tion shall b'; two hundred thousand dollars
aud when ih ? sum of fifty thousand dollars
of the stock has been subscribed, the com
pany may be organized by the election of
officers aud directions. Sixty-live thousand
live hundred dollars have already been sub
scribed, and the necessary officers have
been elected and the board of directors have
been appointed. The capital stock is divided
into shares of one huudred dollars each; is
deemed personal property; is transferable,
and in the elections of officers, etc., each
hare is entitled to one vote in person or by
proxy. By its charter the corporation is
authorized to construct, maintain and
operate a single or double track railroad,
with convenient side tracks, switches, tur
rants, buildings and appendages In tho
counties of Pulaski and Alexander, com
mencing at some convenient point in or
near Mound City, and running thence on
the mottt eligible route to Cairo, and in and
along Washington and Commercial avenues
to Second street, with power to connect on
Second, on Twentieth and Thirty-fourth
streets; and said corporation may construct,
maintain and operate their railroad on
such other streets of this city as the city
council may designate. The corporation
cannot, under Its charter, commence tho
construction of their railroad until they ex
ecute and deliver a bond to tho city of
Cairo in tho penal sum of twenty-five thous
