found the city clerk's advertisement for

The pleasant weather, dry roads and
walks, and bright sunshine, we have had for
a few days past is to give place to disagreea

the next twenty-four hours. So says what
ought to be good authority.
A negro from some foreign port was
lying around on the sidewalk in the dif

terrible pain from erysipelas in the face.
He was taken to the hospital in the after

will be cared for until other disposition
can be made of him.

There is somo comment touching tho
fact that Senator Conkling has not yet put
in an appearance at the White House. As
lie has not crossed its threshold for ove
four years, it is suggested that ho may not
know the way there. When Senator Blaine
went to tho White House with General
Garfield on inauguration day, it was just
three years and seven months to a day since
he had visited the presidential mansion.
It is now definitely understood that
Judge Davis, of Illinois, intends to vote
with tho democrats, but the republicans
confidently expect that General Mahono
will unite with them and their four pros
pective colleagues in tho matter of organi
zation, and that therefore at au early ny,
they will be able, with tho aid of tho vico
president's casting vote, to reorganize the
senate, and thereafter retain control of its
committees and patronage.
"The Bloomington Eyo" of tho 13th
has the following to say about Mr. Oberly's
paper: "Changes on tho Bulletin local
forco are numerous. Mr. Oberlr is trans

gets each man in what ho terms his oroper

Cairo Bulletin, is city editor, succeeding

continue as reporters, with others.
An important transfer of land within
the limits of tho city of Cairo has recently
been made, which has not been recorded at
tho circuit clerk's ofllco of Alexander
County. The Cairo City Property Compa

Company, for railroad purposes, a tract ot
land from tho point up along the insido ot
Mississippi levee to where tho powder
magazines stand. City Engineer Charles
Thrupp was yesterday engaged in laying it
Night before last a white man named
Fisher, wlio was employed on a barge near
Halliday Brother's coal-dump, while en
deavoring to haul in a lino, fell overboard
and went under tho barge. Other men
were on hand and with poles and ropes
stood ready to lend him every assistance as
soon as he should appear upon the surface.
But the poor fellow did not appear upon
tho surface, and poles wero thrust down tit
various points below where he
had fallen in, one of
which came ill coatact with his body by
the merest accident and he grasped it.
Ho was drawn out of the water and proper
ly cared for, and at last accounts was
nearly all right again.
The meetings ot tho tempera nco peo
ple yesterday in the afternoon and even
ing, were largely attended. There seems
to bo no decrease in tho interest manifested
by the members of the club nor by the
speakers, for the attendance is as large and
the exercises are as interesting when the
meetings are held twice a day as
when they arc held only once.
Rev. P. C. Bush addressed
the assembled throngs both afternoon and
evening, making it highly interesting for
all who heard him. There will be another
meeting at half-past three o'clock this
afternoon and the evening meeting will
take place at eight o'clock, instead of seven
as usual. Rev. P. C. Bush is still uu hand,
and will speik at both meetings.
Mr. George G. Wichert, the cigar
manufacturer, near the corner of Fourteenth
street and Washington avenue, is now bet
ter than ever, f reparcd to furnish the best
cigars, in any quantity, in the city. Owing
to the scarcity of skilled cigar-makers in
the past he was not able to supply his
trade as rapidly as was desired, but he has
now remedied this evil by employing eight
cigar-makers all artists in their particular
line, and can now accommodate his many
customers on the shortest notice. He has
on hand a large quantity of the finest raw
material, also fine tobacco of
very kind, which ho offers
to sell as low as any in the city.
His trade has already increased percepti
bly, which has induced him to make a
number of improvements in his business.
His shop is one of the most elegant in the
city, aud he is the only one that has thus
far met the demand of the times by sup
plying himself with a telephone. His num
ber is 119 and all orders sent by telephone
will have prompt attention.
Tho petition of the people of the state
ot Illinois asking that the Illinois legisla
ture submit to them the'question whether
or not tho manufacture and sale of liquors
shall be prohibited, has met not a deaf car,
but a violent rebuke from the republican
legislature. The petition asked for what
every people have a right to haveasked
for the least possible recognition, by tho
representatives of the people, of the tern
perenco clement in the state;
but the soloni scorned tho petition
and consigned tho petitioners to
utter hopefulness. Whatever may have
been the objections to the question that
was to be propounded to the people (and
there were probably many serious objec
tions to it;, that ought to havo been left
with them to decide. It was for the legis
lature to say whether the people should be
heard in tho matter or not, and nothing
else. Tho people's representatives have not
acted fairly with them.
Pursuant to a call from the mayor tho
city council met in special meeting at tho
council chamber last night. The mayor
ami six aldermen wero present. The or
dinance, amending section twenty-three of
chapter five so as to permit the erection of
lamp-posts at nearer distances than
two hundred feet, was adop
ted. The report of the committee appoint
ed to appraise railroad htrip lots was laid
on tho table. Tho report of the committee
on streets was accepted, and several recom
mendations made by it concurred in. A
resolution tillered by Alderman Blake, in
structing tho city clerk to give pro
per notice of tho approaching city election
was adopted, and the mayor appointed tho
following named persons as judges ond
clerks of election: First ward, W. G.
Carey, G. W. McKculg ond P. Mockler,
judges, Frank Redman nnd Harry Sehuh,
clerks; Second ward, C. Lame, C. N.

Last night about halt-past ten o'clock
a young man about seventeen years of age,
named Duvall, who had just come into
town from Pulaski county, carrying a
small satchel and a bundle of clothes, was
attacked by two black scoundrels just as
ho reached Sproat's ice depot on the corner
of Twelfth' street and Ohio levee, who
robbed him of what little money he had
and tore his satchel open in search for other
valuables. Duvall was quietly walking
along when one of tho rascals asked him
for somo tobacco. Duvall answered that
he had none, and just then the other negro
who had sneaked around behind threw his
arm around Duvall's throat aud
chocked him while tho other
dexteriously ri filed his pockets. The vic
tim gurgled forth that he was choking, to
which the brute who held him answered,
"that's what we're going to do with you
g-,1 ... you." After the garrotcrs had
gotten the money, and while they wero ex
amining the contents of the Iwy's satchel,
City Clerk Foley and another citizen, who
heard the boy's outcries, flurried to the
spot, but when they got there the negroes
had tied. The officers were on their track
immediately after, and will probably suc
ceed in capturing tho black devils.
