gallons each, against 0,574,000 in 1870. If
every individual had partaken alike each
one would last year hava drank eight and
one-half gallons. What is worse is that
the increase on distilled liqours is greater
than on fermented.

A man named Sylvester Hosford, of
Vienna, III., was found close by the Cairo
and Vincennes railroad track, near Tenth
street, night before last. He had several
bruises on different parts of his body, and
was intoxicated. He stated to Officer Mar
tin, who found him, that he had been knock
cd down, which is possible, since the num
ber of characters in the city, who would not
hesitate to do such a deed is not small.
At about nine o'clock last night a wo
man was heard to scream most terrifically in
tho Waverly house and a few moments after
wards not less than seventy-five people had
gathered in fiontol the hotel. The report
at once gained currency that a woman had
been shot, which caused an investigation
by the officers, who learned that nothing of
tho kind hail occurred. The woman ar
rived from Caledonia in the evening, aud is
subject to fits and while under their in

about to befall her. Ileuce her screams.
The Springfield Journal, a republican
paper, is our authority for the statement
that it the philosopher who, in ancient
times, went about with a lamp to find an
houtst man, had lived at tho present time
he would have discovered him in a Penn
sylvania legislator, "who," says the Journal,
"refused to take the oath that he had not
used money to influence or secure his own
election." The Bulletin needs not tell
its readers that this man is a democrat and
we take pleasure in holding him up as a
worthy example for republicans to imi
tate. The financial statement of tho City
National bank, published in another col
umn this morning, gives evidence ot first-
class management of that institution. A
A marked improvement in that condition of
the bank is perceptiable, which will
tend to increase, if possible,
the already unbounded confidence
the public has always had in
it. That it is one f the most
stable institutions of its kind in the west,

for years and its present standing, as por
trayed in the statement referred to, must be
very satisfactory to its stockholders and
Borne months ago, when the reduc
tion of the liquor license began to be agi
tated by the city council, and before a
decision had been reached in regard to it,
number of saloon keepers took
out license for six months and paid
at tho rate of two hundred dollars per
annum. Shortly afterwards the council
reduced tho license to one hundred and
fifty dollars per annum, so that those who
had waited until the reduction had taken
effect, were the gaiuers to the amount of
fifty dollars per year. On the first of
January the licenses of those who had paid
tho old price expired and must be renewed,
and their holders will petition tho council
to allow them a reduction this time, equal
in amount to what they paid more than the

It was learned that a negro woman a
resident of Taducah had at four o'clock
in tho morning of tho day on which tl
child was found, applied for admittanco to
tho house of Isem Hill, on Poplar, between
Tenth and Eleventh Btrcets, where she saw
a light burning. Upon pitiously begging
for admitanco and saying that she was very
ill and had been out all r
stio was admited. Lpoii entering, an
while sitting near the fire, she came very
near fainting, but after partaking of a fe
refreshments, left the house and her where
abouts, notwithstanding that tho officers
havo scoured every bagnio in the city, has
remained a mystery. Tho general suppo
sition of thoso who havo enquired into the
matter is that this woman is the guilty
What we lack in this community is
earnestness and enterprise. Wo are in
clincd to be satisfied with our present
condition, and to move along in tho old
ruts rather thuu to make a determined
effort tor progress and improvement,
There are a few, perhaps, who have
fair share of thrift and energy, and who
recognize tho necessity of a radical
chango in the management of our af
fairs. Their recommendations and sug
gestions, however, meet with cither in
difference or opposition. The want of
encouragement and the impossibility
of securing anything like harmoni
ous and unanimous action soon reduces
them to silence. .Tim men who are most
instrumental in bringing about improve
ments are too often fiercely denounced by
men whoso interests in tho city's welfare is
but skin deep and spasmodical. This
should not be especially should it not be
at the present time. The opportunity for
Cairo's growth and prosperity is now better
than ever before and the united and well
directed efforts of our peoplo may, in a very
short time, work wonders.
justwny we snouid nave such ex
tremely cold and disagreeable weather as
is atllicting us is not fully explainable, but
no doubt we have deserved it all. We
have in Cairo left undone many things we
should have done and done those things
we ought not to have done and, if retribu
tion come3 on us through the temperature,
we have no reasonable ground for com
plaint. While our crimes have not been,
perhaps, as numerous as those of Sodom or
Gommorrahor Paducah, nor of the such vile
character, they have been, at least, abundant.
We have failed to exert the force of pub
lie opinion as we should have done. We
have permitted the vilest villains to make
their headquarters among us, during the
winter months. The prayer meetings dur
ing this, the week of prayer, have not beu
as well attended as they should have been.

streets, but denounce every new pavement
as a fraud, and have no unity of purpose in

-At the meeting of the city council on
last Thursday night Mayor Thistlewood re
ported to that honorable body that the city
jail was full. This is indeed a dilemma
which may be seriously felt sooner or later,
The necessity of enlarged quarters will grow
every year, and it is apparent that, either
mucli larger quarters must be provided,
or some plan adopted winch
will prevent men from seeking
to become occupants
of our jail. The
object should be first.
to prevent crime,
to make the criminal pay
or his crime.
It is our opinion that, under
the circumstances, the best way
to accomplish the finr, 13 to
deprive the punishment for crime of all its
attractiveness to the would-be criminal. Do
not hold up to him the prospect of a shel
ter from the wintry blasts, plenty of food
and a life of idleness as a "punishment."
Those who are in the habit
of committing crimes of any kind do not
care for the dishonor that is attached to
imprisonment merely, and look upon jail
life, such as awaits them in this city, as a
pleasant respite from active duty
rather than as a punishment.
Tho way to make criminals
pay for their crime is to com
ply with Alderman Blake's resolution
furnish means by which thoso who
either will not or cannot pay their fines in
greenbacks, can do so with muscle on a
BLOOMINGTON'S DEMOCRATIC WO
MEN. Immediately before the recent election
the democratic ladies of Bloomington made
an eloquent appeal to their "husbands,
fathers, brothers and friends," to give them
a democratic daily newwspapcr in Bloom
ington, which shows them to be wide
awake, intelligent women. Although tardy
in publishing the address it will be found
of interest to Cairo people since Mr.
Oberly lias been selected to edit tho paper
which, partly through their influence, will
shortly be Btarted. The ladies said:

For wceki ami for months tho grand wo
men of ths grand party have, with a su
perb rcticnce, which challenges and ex
torts an uiwilling homage, quietly and
brcathlcssy listened to the mutterings of
tho coming storm. Our noblest candidates
have been laily traduced and vilified with
out the redress of organized defense. Our
political beliefs have been misrepresented
and distorted beyond recognition. In our
churches ot the Sabbath, through the ser
mons, a republican under current
runs string and deep, even it
by actual mine we have not preached to us
the example virtues and greatness of Grant,

democrats of this district furnish us with
a paper which shall assist us in counteract

from press ami pulpit.
Republican hate, and republican ambition
alike mcnance our liberties and our form
of government, and we ask of you the ono
thing you can help us with in our homcs.an
honest, able democratic daily paper, that
