To-morrow evening the Cairo Land
League meets again in the basement of St.
Putrick's church on the corner of Ninth

in the country, with a view to inducing
them to come here and speak upon the
questions which are agitating the Irish na
tion. Among others Mr. Red path and
leverends Ryan, of Tennessee and Pepper,
of Missouri have been written to, nnd it is
thought that Rev. Ryan, (who has ln-come
somewhat famous for his poems) will be
hero in a few weeks.
Yesterday tho two Wizard Oil compa
nies made preparations for leaving and are

latter company came hero upon a call from
Mr. Crosby, intending to help him in
"working the town," but when they arrived
here they found that no satisfactory ar
rangements with the city authorities could
bo arrived at, so that their trip was a total
loss of time nnd money to them also. The
two companies estimate their losses, in con
sequence of the little misunderstanding be
tween Mr. Crosby and the city officers at
about five hundred dollars.
Evening before last the wedding to

Ellen Hanrahan. Both arc well and favora

tho greater part of their lives. Tho affair
was to havo been private, but it could not
be done; it leaked out, and a very nice
audience was present to witness the cere
mony. The happy couple will take up
their resilience on the corner of Seventeenth
and Poplar streets. The Bulletin joins

As was generally expected tho temper
ance people had a grand timo at Reform
hall hist night. It was the largest meeting
they havo had for a long timo and certainly
the most interesting. All the seats wcro oc
cupied and quite a crowd stood out doors
on the sidewalk listening attentively to all
that was said, Col. Lowery was on hand
and delivered his lecture upon tho subject:
"Who is benefited by tho liquor trafic in
Cairo." It was pronounced by all who
heard it to bo tho finest lecture
ever delivered upon temperance in this city;
it must havo been one of tho great efforts
ot the colonel's life. Tho audience was
spell-bound throughout his discourso and
all regretted that it did not last an hour
longer than it did. After Col. Lowry, Rev,
Chaplin spoko in a very entertaining man
ner for about halt au hour, making many
good points. But after this, tho society
event of tho season took place in tho election
of a May Queen. Three or tour of Cairo's
fairest daughters were voted for; some
citemeut prevailed, increased as the relative
number of votes changed and rose. It
proved very interesting and ended by the
election of Miss Mattio Petrle, who received
over three hundred votes.
Last evening tho Arab ire company
aud tho Rough aud Ready fire company
and tho Mystic Krew met at their respec
tive halls for tho purpose of considering
and acting upon tho reports of the "Fourth
of July committees." The Rough and Ready
fire company, after liHving installed their
officers, took up the report of the commit
tee and decided to join in tho celebration,
appointing Messrs. Fred Hofheiuzo and
John Koehler ns a committee to meet the
other committees at tho Rough and Ready
hall to-morrow afternoon. Tho
Arab Fire Company nnd My
tic Krew also ncted favorably
upon the reports of their committees and
the former, appointed Messrs.
Claud Winter and Jeff Clark;
and tho latter, Messrs. W. B. Pettis
and T. M. Lovett, to meet, tho other comj
mittees to-morrow, giving them full power
to act as they deemed best.
About half a dozen families nro still
and havo been for some time, looking for
houses somewhere within the city limits.
All tho old barracks that would admit of
l)einff repaired havo been mado
habitable and are occupied; all
the two and three story rotms
and in many cases the atics arc inhabited
by families; all our privato Iwnrding bouses
arc full and our hotels also, and yet tho
cry for more houses is heard continually.
People are compelled to beg landlords,
who have concluded to occupy their own
bouses, to give them a few days more
time until they can secure another
house. The days invariably lengthen into
weeks and still the landlord (who is in
some cases a newly married man and wishes
to keep house) must wait.. While all this
is so hundreds of our lots aro unimproved
bare; our lumber yards arc
full of material and our
monicd men are tightening their grasp
upon their bags of wealth. It is true that
all the old houses have been repaired and
several new ones have been built and are
lwing built; but the supply of comfortable
little homes will fall much
short of the demand for all time
to come unless a great boom in building is
started, which will result in the construc
tion of at least fifty cottage residences. It
should be borne in mind that, influenced
by the building of the two or three new
railronds having their terminus here, there
will be a great influx of peoplo into Cairo
within the next year, and a corresponding
increase of every kind of business. This
must be provided for in various ways,
chiefly by the erection of suitable houses
in which the strangers may find shelter and
comfort while being employed in the
various industrial establishments in the
city. The loan association is distributing
all the money it receives, among its mem
ler8, enabling them to purchoso homes of
their own; it will, therefore, not bo able
for some time yet, nt least, to
build cottages in its own name. Yet it
has already contributed something toward
relieving this pressure for homes by furn
ishing' to several of its members the money
with which homes will be built. But it is
absolutely necessary that some of our mon
ied men should step forward and invest
their means in the, at present, most profita
ble enterprise of building and thus assist
in supplying nn impcritivo demand that is
From a private letter written lrom

inirton Bulletin, wo make the following ex

found everything in the greatest disorder
not even the cases having been laid. Tho
establishment of a democratic newspaper
was as good as a circus to the peoplo of
the town. They constantly streamed in
and out by tho hundreds and prevented any
perceptible headway from being mado.
When I suggested that tho doors be locked,
I learned thai they were stockholders and
therefore privileged characters. Tho
"chief floor-walker" was jealous of Mr.
Oberly. He wanted to be editor in chief,
and swore ho would break up tho concern
and did everything to ictard progress.
I wandered why ho was not discharged
until I learned that he was a stockholder,
Tho business manager was a good man,
who wanted to do what was right, but in
variably missed tho mark. Ho was busy
night and day doing nothing and Mr.
Oberly often told mo ho ought to havo
you hero. I tried to help him ulong by
tolling him how you managed matters, but
ho remained profoundly ignorant of his
duties. Thinks I to myself, as did "Think
cr," why don't Oberly discharge tho man?
but I soon learned that ho was a stock
holder. Tho city editor, who had chargo
of tho reporters, was a pompous individual
ana a "iiy man" who was
thoroughly worthless. Ho was
not discharged because ho was
stockholder. Tho devil of tho office re
fused to prove gallics and I was strongly
tempted to dischargo bun until I learned
that he was a stockholder. In short, every
lody was a stockholder but Joe and I.
The compositors to a man, who were too
incompetent to find employment on theoth
ur papers, had taken stock in order to oh
tain positions, but what aggravated this
state of affairs was tho fact that every fath
ecr's son of them insisted on playing th
first fiddle end desired everybody elso to
play the second. Under these circum
stances Mr. Oberly plodded along for weeks
without receiving more than one and two
hours sleep out of twenty-four
and then sleeping on the floor in
the office. But tho day came when
this state of affairs became, monotonous to
Mr. Oberly and iu his accustomed manner,
which you know bo well, ho instituted a
reform. At present everything moves
smoothly and tho paper is prospering. Tho
daily has a circulation of nearly two thous
and and lately the paid locals in Sunday's
issuo alone amouuts to seventy-five and
eighty eight dollars, and is constantly in
creasing. But while this is so there aro men
hero who regard it as a crimo to publish,
or read a democratic paper. This is reolly
a "Blooming town," and although I don't
like tho peoplo as well as I do Cairo people
I am in love with tho appearance of tho
place. It has moro churches than saloons
this, however, may bo only my belief
since I have looked chiefly for tho former.
The streets are such as you advocated for
Cairo with grass and trees along tho sides.
They nro simply "superb."
The following is a clear account of the
bloody affair which occurred near New
Madrid on the twelfth instant, and to which
reference was made in a letter published in
"Four men, nnmed Rhnades, Meyers,
Hamilton and Brown, had formed a secret
organization for purposes unknown to any
one save themselves, but now generally
supposed to have been robbery and outlaw
ry, and by accident let their plans become
known to William Knox, who, not being in
sympathy with them, gave them away,
whereupon they concluded to kill him, and
on last Monday night visited his house
for that purpose. Knox succeeded in
evading them by disappearing through a
back door. The other inmates of the house
becoming alarmed at the threats of the four
men, also attempted to make their escape,
but were fired upon, one shot taking cfTed
in the legs of a man who had an infant in
his arms. Three shots also struck the in
fant in the legs and body. Tho scoundrels
also fired at one of the women as she ran
through the orchard, but without effect.
They then remained around Knox's house
until daylight, when they left, taking tlie
direction the man had run whom they had
shot. They had gone but a short distance
when they found the wounded child lying
on the ground. They took it bock to the
house and dressed its wounds. They then
proceeded in search of the wounded man.
They soon found and also assisted him
buck ro the house and called a neighlxir,
whom they instructed to attend to the
wounds. Early Tuesday morning Knox
swore out a warrant lor tho arrest
of the four men and had it
placed in the hands of the consta
ble, who proceeded to perform that duty.
Finding the quartet, the constable was
promptly and coolly informed that they
would not 1m.' arrested by him, but after
some conversation they consented to go,
telling him to lead the way and they would
follow. After proceeding some distance
they changed their minds, and turning into
the woods ran ofT and were not seen any
more until yesterday morning. The sheriff
of New Madrid county, being notified,
went with a posse of ten or twelve men to
the scene of action, which was near Bayne's
store, ten miles below Sikeston. The sher
iff and his party stopped at Bayne's store,
and while there saw the four men coming
down tho main road to them, and discover
ing who they were mounted their horses
and gavo chase. The quartet seeing
the officers advancing took to the
woods and concealed themselves
in the brush. In about an
hour the sheriff and his men camo upon
them concealed behind a log, the first inti
mation they had of their proximity being
a volley of buckshot fired iuto tho party,
instantly killing one of the deputies, Rob't
LaForge, and wounding another, Alk'rt
Hunter. The sheriff's party returned the
fire, and for several minutes a regular bat-J
tic ensued, but the ambush gave tho out
laws such an advantage as to force tho offi
cers back, leaving the murdered man,
LaForge, on tho ground. Tho desperadoes
quickly relieved him of his money, jewels
and pistols, and then retreated. Tho sher
iff's party soon rallied, and with an increas
ed force of forty men continued the pursuit.
Early in the afternoon they found one of
tho desperadoes, Rhoades, who had been
so badly wounded as to be unable to travel,
and took him prisoner. Rhoades' state
ment is that his comrades, finding him shot,
through tho leg und in tho face, concluded
that they would bo unublu to cscapa with
him. Leaving him oiio pistol, they sent
him to the house ot a widow woman and
told 1) i in to do tho best ho could tor him
telf, and then deserted him. He was kept
under guard until ho escaped, but
was soon afterwards found in a stable
hanging by tho ucck to tho rafters. Tho
sheriff and party aro still hunting tho other
three, but had not discovered their where
abouts ot a Into hour. The desperadoes are
armed with doublo-barroled shot-guns and
four shooters each, and aro determined not
to bo taken alive. Tho whole community
is in a terrible statoof wto y"lt
