A large crowd of colored voters wore
gathered at Thomas Clark's saloon last
night until late to listen to the speeches of
some of our local candidates
and to cool their parched tongues
and refresh their throats, hoarse
cheering, no doubt, with some of
Tom's good viands, which were probably
furnibhed at the expense of nome other
than the drinkers. These meetings are said
to be highly interesting to the voters, and
they are the only demonstrations as yet of
an approaching election.
James McCoy and Annie Christianson
were to have been married Sunday night,
. atWanpaca,..Wiv A grand feast was pre
pared, including beer and whisky. The
guests and officiating justice were freely
treated as they arrived and they also fell to
work on the eatables. The whole crowd
became so gloriously full and happy that
the wedding ceremony was entirely forgot
ten and the company dispersed at an early
hour Monday morning without having seen
the knot tied. Jim and Annie discovered
the mistake, invited the guests again Tues
day night, but reserved refreshments till
after they had been married.
There is no phase of popularity so eas
ily achieved ami productive of so much
good results as well lighted streets. Kuro
pean capitals have discovered that fact,
and are widely published as brilliantly
lighted cities. But apart from that consid
eration there are other and more seriously
practical ones. Those cities which most
increase in population and productive pro
perty are these which best protect both at
these elements. With the growth and in
crease of population and Us display of bus
iness Is a sequent growth of crime and an
Increased need of protection. The beBt

oughly lighted street; Indeed, it is one of
his most valuable assistants, without which
he works at great disadvantage. In snuao
respects it In superior In value, for tho
street lamp is in its place and at its duty
til eight, while tho officer must frequently
change his position. Economy has Induced
several cities to try the experiment of dig

on moonlight nights, but in all large ones
it has been abandoned. Light is protec

Fifty-live counties in the state of Illi
nois paid thirty-eight thousand three hun
dred dollars and eighty-five cents to
their grand jurors last year. Alex
ander county's last grand jury cost it one
huudred and seventy-six dollars and seven
ty cents. Tho averago cost of the grand
jury system to the counties from which re
ports were received, in obedience to a reso
lution of the state legislature, was six hun
dred ninety-six dollars and thirty eight
cents. These figures will give the people
some idea of what it costs them to take the
first step in bringing persons who aro
suspected of crime to justice.
Paducah, Ky., seems to be very much

dow. But Captain Edwards, keeper ot the
jail, in some way got wind of their design

Perhaps it will be a surprise to some
of our citizens, but the fact is none the less a
very glaring one, that the delinquent tax
lists in this state this year will be larger
than they have been for some
years, in tact tliey nave oeen growing
from year to year until they have assumed
immense proportions, with the exception,
perhaps, of Alexander county. It would
appear trom this snowing that the tax
payers were becoming more and more in th
habit of allowing their names with tin
amount ot their indebtedness to the city,
county and state, to appear in the papers as
a mere matter of course. They consider it
more convenient to wait and bo informed
by the newspapers what the amount of
their taxes is and then to send the sheriff a
check by mail, than to .run to the court
house, which may be a mile or more away,
and then find the sheriff out, or their pile
too small. The amount charged them for
having their taxes advertised is so small
that they would much rather pay the few
cents more than to be put to any trouble
Among the new incorporation papers
issued recently in Springfield are those
to "the Cairo Opera House company, of

already arrived and are in the hands of
Captain Thomas W. Shields, and prepara

company. Everything is in readiness to
i .i , . , ... ...
orgin tne sate or stocK wnicn will no
doubt be taken rapidly as the enterprise is
found to be a profitable
one and is in hands that
will permit uo unnecessary delay. The
)lans of the incorporators are not yet ma
tured, ot course; these are to bo decided
upon after the stock company has been
formed; but yet the prime movers in the en
terprise have not gone as far as they have
without deciding upon some plan of the
building. According to this plan the
building is to be a grand brick structure,
taking in about half a block and three or
four stories high. The theatre, proper is
to be on the first floor and what is
not taken un bv it there ulll
be prepared for store rooms. The
upper stories will be used for various pur
poses, such as halls for societies, offices,
etc. The incorporators and others concern
ed will have a meeting in a davortwotn
decide upon the next step and to further
evolve their plans. The character and pe
cuniary standing of the gentlemen who are
at the head of this movement is a sufficient
guarantee that the opera house will be one
of which Cairo can justly be proud ; a pre
nianent institution which wilt
not only challante the ml.
miration of our neighbors, but
serve as a magnet to all the large theatrical
troupes in the country. Then our people
(who aru decidedly a theatre-going people)
will not have to go to St. Louis or Chicago
in order to see tho most renowned actors
and actresses, hut can have this privi
lege here, and also the satisfaction of
seeing our neighbors coiio to us in order
to get a glimpse at these prodigies.
There are unmistakable signs of an
unusual prosperity in Cairo a prosperity
that does not show itself to be of a fickle
kind, but that will abide by us through
all time to come unless some great unfor
seen event blots it out. Cairo property has
advanced in value greatly. Thin is due in
part to tho fact that, forsomo cause that is
uot as plain as it might bo, tho demand
for tho property increased. Onoby one
the empty houses in the city began to be
occupied; more wero iicoded and, to supply
this need, those which had been allowed
to sink into premature decay
wero repaired and also occupied. The
demand for more houses continued, how. I

ever, and persons who had formerly cried
down the town, offering to sell what littlo
property they had to any one for less than
half the cost, began to invest their surplus
cash in more, and it was then that the build
ing fever began, which has continued ever
since in a steady motion. Now in every
part of the city may be seen
piles of bricks and sand and
lumber, and buildings in course of erection;
our mechanics are all employed, building
material for substancial brick structures is
exhausted, our merchants aro all doing
well and there are in course of beiug ma
tured several grand schemes to give Cairo
two or three institutions that will be to it a
lasting benefit and pave the way for her
future rapid growth. These schemes are
the Halliday house, the opera-house and
the cotton seed oil mill. The first named
is a fact the second will be, shortly, and the
latter can be if the proper efforts are made
to secure it. It may be said by
some that Cairo's natural advantages ought
to be a sulficient inducement to any one to
come here and invest his money. They are
superior to those of any city around us,
and arc acknowledged to be so by all who
are acquainted with them. All this is true.
Cairo can offer to the man or party of men
who are seeking a spot to invest their
accumulated capital such advantages over
any oher place within hundreds of miles
around us as ought to satisfy them that this
would be the place above all others where
their wealth could be profita
bly invested Its shipping fac
ilities alone are worth more to a
manufacturer in a year than the lota and
buildings that Hickman or any other city
within a hundred miles of us, could offer
him, and would save him more in one year
than the taxes on his property in Union
City would amount to in twenty-five years.
Ail this is true and should be given proper
weight by Mr. Campbell when the final
decision as to the location of his
great oil mill is to be reached.
But if, afti-r giving all these things their
full weight, this gentleman and his col
legium should still demur, and there is any
probability of getting a f.ivorable decision
by making some advances through our city
council, why, then those advances should
be made, for we can very well afford to
make a small temporary sacrifice in order
to obtain a permanent lencfit. Form
erly when Cairo had not the shipping
facilities that it now has, it voted
bouds to the companies that promised to
make it the terminus of a line of railway.
connecting it with the north, cast and west;
but now, having become by its own exer
tion a railroad centre, it needs hold out no
inducements to other railroad companies to
lay their tracks here. Formerly, when it
was weak and unimportant in respect to its
railroad facilities, it sought the railroad
conipanie and paid them for coming here
because il was benefitted thereby; but now.
having become strong and an important.
railroad centre, other railroad companies
seek it and pay it for the privilege of
coming here. And so it will be with
Cairn's niantitar turing interests. It
must upect to make urns
small sacrifices in order to induce men of
means to establish two or three large man
ufactories here, which will give tone and
importance to the place and will serve as a
certain, powerful magnet to other men of
means, who wish to embark in similar en
