Frank McICee, advance representative for

can and German Allied Shows, put in an
appearance yesterday, and from the exten
sive preparatory arrangements ho is mak
ing, wo judge that the show bo repres
sers will be the biwost nn"ir in that
line Cairo will have this season.
Desirous of obtaining a few points in re
gard to the allied shows, The Kum.etis
man cornered Mclveo in his sanctum yester
day, when the following conversation en
"Well, McKee, what are the prospects
for circus men the coming season?'1 asked
, "Well, sir", in fact, the prospects for the
lai-f organizations are not very Mattering,
looking at it froina financial stand point, for
it is becoming a popular plan for managers
to pool their interests, therehv fonnint?
such a costly organization that nothing
short ot packed canvasses will ever pay the
management for the enormous outlay of
money. I am speaking of
the large shows. Of course the
small circuses can live if they can get the
people ineide of their canvass, but with
such a show as Bobbins & Colvin have
formed it is decidedly a risky undertaking.
Hut Robbins & Colvin are not the sole
owners. It is an organization dim-rent
from any other on the road. It is an insti
tution created by the joint co-operation of a
number of eastern and western capitalists,
formed into a stock company, duly incor
porated and chartered by the state of Wis
consin and endorsed by the ground ol the
"That is rather a novel plan for a circus,
is it not?"
"Ves sir it is. and you can readily see
that an institution such as this and bearing
the endorsements that it does, would not
dare to stoop to trickery or to inveigle peo
ple under its canvass by making misrep
resentations on paper, which it can not
substantiate. Furthermore the manage
ment have given their agents the strictest
orders to engage in no squabbles with sim
ilar shows, by using scurulous insinuations
and venemous personal attacks in such a
manner as to nauseate the reputable com
"Your expenses must he rather heavy."
"Well I should think so. The expenses
of running an organization like this
ranges from 1,500 to 1.800 per dav. We
have thirty men in advance of tho show
alone, almost 2,000 sheets of colored pos
ters are spread upon the wall, 10,000 pro
grammes and couriers are distributed and
live or six hundred lithographs at each
stand we make. Of courso not all this in
the town alone for we bill the country
heavy. Our weekly newspaper bills aver
age 1,200. Our salary list is very high
as we employ none but tho best of people
in every capacity. The name of Chas. W.
Fish is alune a sufficient evidence of the
class of arenic artists we havo. We run our
own cars, owned exclusively by us, two
special trains making thirty-two cars, in
addition to an advertising car and two or
three other advertising brigades."
"How about your menagerie features!"
"Of course, as in everything else we
have trot the costliest and the rarest.
Giraffes, hippopotamus, a herd ot the ele
phants and a lamily of sea-lions arc among
the principal menagerie features, and such
animals as these cost more than the ordi
nary menageries of several similar circuses
Tuic Bulletin man, at this point,
reminded the circus embassador that space
was precious and the interview ended not,
however, before Mclveo insisted that he
had not half told tho story.
TIIK LAND LEAGUK.
Cm no, April S-lth, 1SS1.
In answer to a cull issued in The Bul
letin a week ago, a number of Irishmen
assembled in the basement of St. Patrick's
church, and formed an organization to bo
known as the Cairo Branch of the Irish
National Land League. Having uono
through prelimarv business the following
officers were elected and names subscribed:
John O'Leury, president; Bobert Smyth,
treasurer; John English, Secretary, Bev.
Thos.Masterson, Jno. Sullivan,!). J.Galligan,
Patrick Gratirv. James Graney. Michael
Glynn, Peter Bonan, Bichard Walsh, Will
iam Mockler, Patrick Mockler, D. J. Foley,
Michael O'Dounell, Bernard Smyth, Jere
miah Callaghan, Dennis Hurley, Patrick
Farrell, David Barry, M. E. Powers, Willie
Sullivan, Dan Sullivan, James Cotter,
Committees aro as follows : ' '
First ward Wm. Mockler oiid P. Bonon.
Second ward M. Glyon nd Jas. Quinn.
Third ward P. Graney and Bobert
Smyth. i? v
Fifth ward J. O'Loary nnd M. Craigh
ton. Tho object of tho Irish National Land
League is tho abolition of landlordism
mid a radical change ofland tenure in Ire
land on the principal that "tho land of a
country belongs to tho people of that conn
try" and that tho mini who tills the soil
shall own it.
As is known to tho world landlordism
keeps the Irish people on the brink of star
vation in trood seasons and in bail sea-
sons brings them face to facj with famine.
To change this we ask tho co-operation of
all fair-minded men and for this purpose a
committee uf two is appointed in each
ward to solicit men irrespective of creed or
nationality to join the Leagu.-.
The regular meeting of the Cairo
Temperance Ueform Club, at their hall on
Friday night was characterized by an un
usual amount of earnestness. After tin.
usual opening had been atteiided to, Bev.
Benj. Y. George, pastor of the Presbyterian
cloircli of this city aiis eallel out and in
response guvo expression to ideas which
were well received by the audience which
was principally made up of ihe temperance
workers; among other hiiig-i lie alluded to
tho temperance sentiment which is so rap
illy growing all over tho country, north,
south, east and west, and also to an article
which recently appeared in tho editorial
columns of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat -wherein
the writer of the article alluded to.
regards the subject of prohibition as tho
coining issues which cannot be avoided.
Bev. George was followed by members of
the club in a few remarks, after which was
offered and adopted the following:
"Besolved, That the Cairo Temperance
Reform Club extend to the Honorable
Mayor and board of Aldermen a personal
invitation to bo present at Temperance
Ballon Mun.lav evening, April 2oth, at 8
o'clock to hear the reasons of Col. Long f
Kentucky, "Why the Liquor Traffic Should
not be Licensed an Cairo."
In accordance with which invitations
have been issued to the mayor, aldermen
all the city officials.
