Itcame stealing over the wire to us
last night, as many an item does these
times, that a large audience greeted the
new troupe at the Comique, und that no
better performance was ever seen in Cairo.
This is from a disinterested party.
The Metropolis Democrat in speaking
of tho probability of Hon. John II. Oberly's
departure from Cairo, says: The town
securing Mr. Oberly's services in the editor
ial line may count itself fortunate as he
possess abilities of the first order."
Speaking ot the probable future of the
new democratic paper to be started at
Bloomington, with Hon. John H. Oberly as

Among the legislation proposed by

Chas. Cornell, better known as "hand
some Charley," yesterday appeared beforo
Judge Olmsted in company of one of the
Knights of the Star, who charged him with
disorderly conduct. Charley's good looks
didn't save him. The judge fined him fivo

let's not ring unless the tube is hung on

well known in Cairo, as being worthy of
confidence, will not want for patronage.
City Engineer Thrupp has resumed
work on the embankment of the Illinois
Central railroad below the nalliday nouse.
He and Captain Keyser, thejatter of whom
has the contract ef constructing the Cairo
& Vinceunes embankment, have been
greatly interfered with in their work by the
cold weather, but are now using every
means to finish it.
Besides the case of disorderly conduct
noted elsewhere, tho following cases were
disposed of in Judgo Olmsted's court:
John Cody was fined five dollars, for dis
orderly conduct, and surprised the court by
producing tho money; James Scott, found
guilty of drunkenness, was given a "stay,"
and Thos. Lehuing, for the same offense,
was fined one dollar.
At the meeting of tho Young People's
Temperance association held last night,
the following officers were elected for the
ensuing term; Miss Fanny Barclay, presi
dent; Will Williamson, first vice-president;
Miss Fannie Pitcher, second vice-president;
Miss Jennie Wilson, recording secretary;
Miss Maud Rittcnhouse, corresponding
secretary; Miss Mamie Sproat, treasurer;
Miss Ella Kent, organist.
Everything is stalwart in Illinois now.
Heretofore it has been considered a matter
of common fairness to have one of the rail
road and warehouse commissioners of Illi
nois a democrat, but a republican is ap
pointed as a member of that board in place
of HonJohn H.Oberly,the democrat who has
been holding that place. Cullom is filling
up all the holes with his own pegs in order
to fix himself for the senatorial race.
TheArgU3 says: "The body of Mr.
Samuel Halliaay, which was interred in his
private grounds, near his residence, thirteen
years ago, was disinterred on Saturday last
and , removed to Beech Grove cemetery.
The casket was opened, ajnd while the flesh
wasJound to be all gone, tie clothing look

well as textures being preserved. An infant
child xif Mr. John Aisthorpe's interred
about a year ago, was also removed.''
Says the Metropolis Democrat: "A
good example for young ladies is that of
Misees Cora Halliday and Edith Oberly, of
Cairo, in entering the office of Messrs.
Halliday Bros, as book-keepers. This was
not a matter of necessity on the part ot the
young ladies, their fathers in both instances
being able to provide lor them handsomely,
but they both, it appears, have the good
sense to realize the truth that honest in

The sociable and dance, under the
auspices of the Cairo Reform Club, to-night,

affair of the season. The committee of ar
rangements are J. F. Miller, C. R. Stuart,
Frank Ileicy and Chas. Hammond. Floor

for the southern market, and is now lying
at tho Kentucky shore, opposite Cairo,
waiting for the ice gorge above here to
pass down, when she will start on her trip
down the river. Tho saloon, on the corner
of Twelfth street and Washington avenue,
ot which Mr. Mallory had charge, is now
entrusted to Mr. Henry Franken, who will
servo its patrons in tho best of style.
Green B. Raum looms up in the dim
perspective as an able bodied opponent of
Shelby M. Cullom for the senatorial honors
to be handed out by the next legislature.
These ambitious statesmen are lying awako
of nights concocting plaus to circumvent
each other in the matter. It would bo the
richest joke ot tho season if Illinois should
flop at tho next legislative election and re
turn a democratic majority ou joint ballot.
Then would two mighty brows bo clothed
in sombre darkness und two mantles folded
ovor two countenances bearing tho impress
of deep and abiding anguish.
At tho last meeting of tho city coun
cil City Engineer Thrupp, in compliance
with Alderman Puticr's resolution, intro
duced and passed at the previous meeting
ot tho council, submitted a report estima
ting tho cost of construction of a sewer in
tho centre of Commercial avenue, from
First to Seventh streets. He also submitted
for consideration and suggested as
a necessity, a sewer of a larger
capacity than that mentioned in the rcsolu
tion at tho same timo giving mi estimate
of the cost of the same. Tho report wus,
ou motion of Alderman llowley, filed.

Navigation between hero and New
Orleans is virtually suspended, no boats
being here that are willing to take ou a
load for a trip south and none being on
their way up. The reason for this is that
tho great ico gorge, which had formed near
Cincinnati, Ohio, lias broken loose and is
on iA way down, being now near Louis
ville, Ky., and all boat3 are hugging tho
shore in order to avoid being caught in it.
The damages caused by tho break are r e
ported to be very extensive.
At this timo of tho year, with the
weather that we have been blessed with
for the last three or four weeks, causing
the rivers to be filled with ice, so that
stock cannot approach to quench the rag
ing thirst without, tho public pumps are
indeed a blessing and one which is as
much appreciated by men as by the beasts.
Dozens of teams of every description
gather around each of the watering places
in the city every noon and evening, to
partake of the invigorating draught fur
nished by the town pumps.
Tfio DuQuoin ' Tribune says: "There
is some talk of a shooting tournament to
bo held in this city about the middle of
May. What do the sportsmen of Southern
Illinois say to the proposition? Our local
uimrods would like to know how much
encouragement they will receive before
they enter into the matter too extensively.
If it should occur, it will be managed fair
ly and honestly, giving every participant a
fair show to win if he has the ability, and
besides, premiums will be offered that will
be worth contesting for. Parties favoring
the project, and willing to take part in the
match, will confer a favor on the expected
managers by dropping a card or letter to
the publishers of this paper."
Some time ago one ot the Cleveland
gas companies indulged in a kind of men
tal exercise very much neglected by the
general run of corporations, to-wit: Calm
judicious reflection. The result was a con
clusion that it would be to 'their interest to
lower the price of gas to $1.80 per 1.000
feet. They lowered it. Tho new system
worked so well increased the consump
tion and, of course, the receipts so rapidly
that a further reduction of $1.C5 per
1,000 feet wa3 made. In view of this fact
a contemporary is moved to remark:
"This is an enlightened business policy, as
becomes a gaslight company, but we fear
too maily such companies are yet wrapped
in a darkness which only the electric light
It is rumored that Mayor Thistlcwood
will nominate two extra policemen at the
meeting of the city council to-night. The
necessity for a larger police force has
existed for some time, and has not yet
passed, and we believe that the mayor
and council. would receive the applause of
the public, should they make the rumor
true. In this connection it is not out of
place to mention the names of several
gentlemen who would make excellent offi
cers. It is desireable, of course, that the
appointees should have some experience in
the busines, and as such, we feel no hesi-
tency in recommending Messrs. Geo. Wil
son and Has Martin, both of whom are
men of good character and have given evi
dence of efficiency.
The railroad and warehouse commis
sioners of the state of Illinois make a show
ing of astonishing prosperity in the railroad
business of Illinois during 1S80. There
turns are complete, except from the Balti
more and Ohio and St. Louis and South
eastern roads, and show that the forty-six
roads doing business in the state have
earned during the year ending June 30,
$133,000,000. The expenses were $73,-
000,000 and the net income $01,000,000.
The passenger business paid $34,000,000;
Freight $101,000,000. There were 217
persons killed and 70C injured by the
roads. The highest gross earnings in any
previous year was in '7!), when they were
$110,0011,000, aud in the same year the net
earnings were $47,000,000. Six of tho
roads doubled their net earnings over the
As a result of steady and persistent
advertising, we can speak f tho business of
Mr. Win. M. Davidson, on Eighth street.
Mr. Davidson commenced business less
than two yeare ago in a small way, and
with faith in printer's ink, immediately
commenced advertising Ids wares, from
that day to this, through lively and dull
times, his card has met the reader's eye
in every isbuo ol 'iiie Bulletin. As
might have been foreseen, his business has
increased, until now his quarters arc
entirely too small to accommodato Ids
stock or trade. His sales of "Active" base
burners and cooking stoves, have been a
surpriso even to himself, ami he has found
it difficult to keep enough in stock. Ho
is also doing a good business in iron grates
mantles, a specialty with him, while every
other branch of his business has grown in
proportion. We repeat it, steady advertis
mg is bound to win, and to provo the truth
of it we point to Davidson.

THE CENTRAL OFFICE.
Our readers, who havo heard so much
about the telephone, will doubtless be in
terested in its workings at the central
office. With tho intention of giving a des
cription ot the office und the maimer in
which connections are made, wo called at
tho office a few days ago, and found it
quite a remarkablo place one of which
we feel our incompetency to give a descri
ption. It is a room, perhaps, ten by twelve
in size, with two doors and but one win
dow, which necessitates the constant use of
gas. The wires a great many in num
ber, of red, white and blue colors
are stretched through the wimlow, about as
closely together as are the strings of a harp.
From the window they aro fastened to the
ceiling and from there run down the wall
to the instrument, which stands near tho
wall and is called tho "Law system switch."
It is about four feet in length and of the
same heighth, but all that is visible is a
large polished board against which a num
ber of brassbars or strips aro fastened,
which are punctured with holes and run
horizontally from , one end of the
switch to tho other. In front of these is a
board, about one foot in width, running in
the same direction. Tho board is filled
with holes each hole being numbered
and through these the wires pass the
number of the wire corresponding with the
number of the hole through which it passes.
An Instrument, similar to those used by
the subscribers attached to one end of the
switch, at which Mr. W. C. Huff, the super
intendent ot the system, is at present
stationed, either sitting or standing, con
stantly holding the tube of the instrument
to his ear and repeating the orders which
he receives to' a boy who stands by the
board above mentioned. If No. 18 desires
to communicate with No. 20, he holds
down the lever of his instrument and,
speaking to the central office, repeats the
numbers. Mr. Huff, hearing them, repeats
them to the boy at the board who, casting
his eyes over the board, finds the holes
numbered 18 and 20 and, picking up the
wires which run through them, taps one
of the horizontal brass bars with the ends,
thereby causing both the bells ot No.
18 and No. 20 to ring, and then
places the ends of the wires into
two separate holes of the same bar, when
the connection is made and communication
established. No. 13 having had his "say,"
he again presses down on the lever of his
instrument and informs the central office to
"disconnect 18," which words are repeated
by Mr.Huff to thp boy who, thereupon, pulls
the wires out of the brass bar, and they
drop back into their former position in the
board by the force of leaden weights which
are fastened to them with small pullies.
On the wall, opposite to the switch above
described, is an instrument of the usual
kind, which is chiefly used for testing
wires and which may be connected with
that of any subscriber. While at the of
fice a number of persons asked to be con
nected with the New York store, but had
to be informed that the establishment was.
at that time, holding sweet converse with
some other party. This, however, lasted so
long that Mr. Huff, remarking "the New
York store don't talk that Ion,' to one
man," ordered the side, wire to be connected
with the wire of the store and thereby
learned that his supposition was correct
that no one was talking to the establish
ment, and that it, or the person who had
communicated with it, had forgotten to or
der the wires disconnected. We mention
this instance as a warning to subscribers.
By failing to notify the office to "discon
nect" they may prevent many a persou who
has business with them from making their
During our short stay the gentle
men exhibited a patience that
was really sublime such as
only telephone men, ministers of thegosple
and newspaper men are capable of. Every
moment some one asked to be connected
while others desired to be disconnected.
"Connect No. with Mr. ," was the
order of some and, of course, the Dumber
of Mr. had to be found before the
connection could be made. Others, who
still persisted in holding down their lever,
had to bo told to let up on it. while others
had to be told not to speak so loud nor so
close to the transmitter, and still others
asked all manner of questions which, being
proper enough, had to be replied to.
When the reader considers that besides all
this the testing of new instruments still
continues, he will have some idea of tho
labors and worry which those are subject
to who are in charge of tho much talked
of and much talked to central office.
