A CHICAGO LETTER.
CiucAdo, Ills., April Oth, 1881.
If the readers of The Bci.letin in Cajro
who are sometimes careless in regard to its
support, and are slow to appreciate the
efforts ot the editors and publisher, in
giving them the current local news, could
be absent from Cairo about six months and
be permitted to peruso Tiie Bulletin's
columns every day, as I have done, sinco
making our home in this wonderful 'city,
they would realize how important it is to
support their home paper. 01 courso in
Chicago thcro are big papers, littlo papers,
dailies, weeklies, monthlies, &c, almost
without number, but that which wo prize
the highest and read with niosjt interest, is
TheDailyCaikoRcllktin. Wc prizo it be
cause It gives us news from what appears to
us still as home, from our old fricnds,associ
ates and acquaintances. In fact, it is like
a letter daily, and I do not see how people
who ever lived in Cairo for many months
or years, and havo removed, can get along
without it. And now, while on this subject,
I will say that ' under the
new regime The Bulletin lias lost
nono of its vigor, and under tho present
management seems to bo improving all tho
timo, I sincerely hope that it is making
money for its publisher, and may continue
It seems a long timo tlnco I havo hnd
tho privilege of enjoying a littlo confab
with our Cairo friends, through its col
urns; hut a winter, such as I nuvor saw be
fore, and as I liopo ncvor to tuo again, hat
intervened, and your humble servant hat
put in much of his timo in keeping out tho
cold blasts of this "blarsted" climate and
in trying to push a new business during
the dull season. For, emphatically, there
are four months in this city whon business
is at a low ebb and every ono must prac
I am glad to read of, and hear of, the
continued prosperity of the Delta City, and
think, as I did years ago, that Cairo will,
some time, be ono of tho most important
cities in the Mississippi valley. Let mo
congratulate her people on tho inaugura
tion of telephonic connection, a street-car
line in tho near future, a "first-class" hotel
sure enough; new and important railway
advantages, continued improvement of tho
streets, and last, hut by no mean least,
street-lighting, as well as the fact that
Cairo stockholders now control
tho gas company. Ono more
thing you need and that is water works,
and I hope the day is not far distant when
this enterprise will bo inaugurated I for
got to mention your Opera House Company
glad to hear of its organization, and feel
sure that your city will, before long, havo a
place of amusement that will be a credit
I am sorry to hear, once in a while, ot
the death of some good citizen in your
midst. I can count quite a number with
in tho last 7 months.
What about your city election, which
comes off on the 19th? Arc you going to
elect good, ami true men, or will you per
mit unworthy men to secure places of
honor? I hope you will elwct a wide-awake,
honest and enterprising mayor, who is in
sympathy with the prosperity of the city,
and subordinate officers, and a council,
who will support him in pushing on his
good work. Cairo can elect good men
when she tries. Let this be one of the times
when she tries.
But you may wonder why I do not give
you some Chicago news, for really I have
said but littlo about this great, wonderful
and growing city. In future letters I shall
endeavor, at stated intervals, to keep you
posted. For the present, I give you the
Of course you know our election is over,
and how Carter Harrison's eagle screams.
There is nothing wonderful about it when
you know that Clark, the republican candi
date did not have manliness enough to come
out and declare, without any "ifs or amis,"
that he would execute the laws; and then
while courting tho temperance people ho
permitted Hcssing to "boss" things so as to
keep the saloon people ia a good humor,
loo much Hessing, too much "Duinmer
Mullier" on the North Side, and too much
corruption and rings among republicans, is
what was tho matter. The Council has a
clear republican majority over all. Carter
starts out to-day with the assertion that he
will execute the laws. We shall see. It
is well to remember that he would like to
Thcro was quite an excitement this week
over tho strike of the West Division railroad
conductors and drivers Thursday morning.
All over COO in number struck for 20 per
cent advance, and every wheel on the twelve
lines on tho West Side stopped, and 100,
000 men nnd women had to w.ilk down to
business and back. The striko lasted till
yesterday afternoon, when the railway com
pany gave in and the "hoys" went to work
and every body was happy except the
railway company. The strikers maintained
tho best kind of order and had tho
sympathy of everybody.
Navigation will soon open here, and tho
business boom will commence in earnest.
Tho congressional delegation, with the
remains of Senator Carpenter, arrived in
this city this morning. They remained
about au hour at tho depot and went on to
Wisconsin. "Boss" Conkling was tho "ob
served of all observers."
The snow is gradually going away, but
everybody continues to wear an overcoat.
It snowed only twice this week, but to-day
looks moro like spring than any wo havo
had in fivo months. It is confidently ex
pected that tho snow will stop br tho 4th
of July. The earth is now frozen solid over
two feet deep. Sotno of these days I want
to tell you something about tho "42 snows
winter" of 1880 and 1881.
All the city is in a hubbub just now
about rents. Nearly everybody changes
residences on tho 1st ot May, and such
another homo-hunting never was heard of
before, on account of the advance in rents.
Tho advance ranges from 20 to 75 per cent.
As a consequence, there will bo fewer
houses rentod than was expected ; as two or
three families will, in some cases, crowd into
ono house; many will movo out to tho su
burban towns, and hundreds and thousands
will board, who did not expect to. Tho
landlords a to killing tho goose that lays
tho golden egg.
At for Cairo folks in Chicago ! havo
seen but few. Herbert Harrcll called on
us a week or two ago. Ho is doing well.
Ho stated that his father was thinking of
going to Liverpool, Wo hail a call a few
days sinco from Attorney Damron, of your
city. Ho is looking well. Once in a while
we see our old friend, Harmon Black, your
member to the leclslaturo. After this
spring opens I hope to seo moro Cairo
iouwill havo quite a ueiegation of
Chicago people to attend tho semi-annual
meeting of tho Social Science Association
in Cairo. It is needless for mo to bespeak
lor them a cordial reception as I know they
will have it. But, for the present,
D. L. D. .
Mk. James Daleu, who resides at No.
551 Ninth Avenue, New York, says: About
five years since, I fell from a scaffold and
severely injured my back and have been a
sufferer ever since. A short timo ago I
slipped and fell on tho sidewalk and great
ly aggravated my old trouble. While in
this unhappy condition a friend' recom
mended St. Jacobs Oil and I was induced
to give it a trial. After applying it for
short time, I was completely cured, not
only ot the bruises and effects ot my last
fall, but of those consequent upon my first
hurt ami which had lingered with mo for
five years. I can therefore conscientiously
bear testimony to tho wonderful curative
properties of St. Jacobs Oil.
It is really not very long sinco pros
perous business men were satisfied with
apartments which would hardly suit
well-to-do woikingmen now. That,
however, says a New York correspond
ent, was before we got into tho area of
grout millionaires. There are lots of
folks still among us who remember very
well when tho possession of $l'00,000
made a man a nabob. Astor was the
only actual millionaire in the city.
Back in those tiuios it was tho custom
of rich men to live in apartments over
their places of business. That was
when the stores were all below Canal
street, and Murray hill away out iu tho
country. Tho merchants and lawyers
who lived over their stores and offices
were quite as comfortable thero as the
richer men of to-day living in $100,000
mansions tip town, Tho elito of the
city could bo found in tho neighbor
hood of Bowling Green, and the Bat
tery had greater charms than Central
park has now. Between riches now
and riches then tho difference is enor
mous. Ono of our present millionaires,
with an extravagant family, spends as
much money in a year as would havo
in, id o a permanent family fund in tho
old times. It is not an uncommon,
thing for such a man to lay out $10,000
between New Year's and tho next
Christmas. In tho times I spunk of, a
man who could command $-10,000 all
told was considered rich for lifo. An
income of $'-Vjih) or $3,0(10 a year was
thought enough for any family not giv
en to downright extravagance. Fivo
or six times that will hardly sullieo for
a fashionable family now. The world
has changed indeed, and nowhere moro
than in Gotham. But in thoso slow old
times, great corporations were un
known, aud no man could put millions
in l is pocket by tho simple jiroccss of
The last timo George Washington
was in Wall street that way of getting
rich had not been discovered. It was
quiet enough down there thon, aud
neither bull nor bear was to bo seen
any whero about. Tho statuo that is to
go up at tho sub-treasury will look ou a
scene a good deal different from tho
ono tho Father of his country behold.
If it could get a thinking and speaking
apparatus for a while it nijght have
something to say that tho bulls and
bears might not liko. Tho making of
the statuo is now only a question of
lime. The committee in charge of tho
malter' has issued a call for subscrip
tions, and they aro confident that
enough m ney will soon bo raisod. It
is to bo hoped they won't run across any
old curmudgeon liko tho ono who was
rusked to subscribe for tho Washington
