AN IXTKRESTINfl LETTER FROM TIMOCR RE-
KEItltlNfl TO THE PUSH AND ENTER
I'lUSE OK CAIRO.
Cairo, III., October G, 1881.
Its an old song that "Away down in
Cairo this darky's bound to die," yet this is
not so far off or is this tho most direful
and miserable a rity of which the old song
was sung long, long ago. Amid all the
paraphasingof slander, mid hard wonlsof
tho passerby, Cairo is on the boom, and
when once one gets acquainted with its
worthy hospitable riti.ens, its position,
commanding as it does already and will do,
more so as a place in the business world, as
a center of commerce and manufacturies,
all is not just that has been said. It might
be asked wherein does this presumption
rest, bir truth we say takn its railroadH,
whose iron nrms are reaching out to all
parts of this gn'at land of ours. Already
tney nave tnree direct routes to uie
with and a new one, the Texas narrow
gauge, now building, reaching far into tho
sunny south, with its grand route and con
nections to Chicago, to lakes and the east,
the Cairo Si St. Louis and the Iron Moun
tain leading to tho west, while with the
creat Mississippi on the one side and the
placid and beautiful Ohio on the other
bearing upon their flowing waters steamers
grand and noble, why should not Cairo
stand forth, and not only vretend, but
claim a position among the busy cities of
the Union? Cairo, to-dav, with all the en
comumsof critieiiiu .m i imrd taunts pushed
upon it, is steadily on the progressive, and
is last dissipating tne nam ami unjust no
risions so often given it. We have hero
one of the finest ami most complete hotels
ii tho country, "Tho Halliday," hotelried
y L. P. Parker, Esq., one of the most ener
getic ami competent of landlords, just the
gentleman to givu eclat and reputation to
so grand u place of rest for the.weary trav
eler as well as the permanent boarder. Tho
Halliday, owned and built by tho enter-
uising firm of Halliday Brothers, fills the
want that so long has been one of tho mis-
rablo features of Cairo. Your citizens
feel proud of your St. George, and Cairo
feels justly the same in regard to this elo-
There! has been, in the last three months,
a street railroad built, reaching from
Twenty-eight street to tho depots in tho
lower part ol the city, and already tins sev
eral cars procured by the company aro un
ablo to meet the demands of tho public,
not biir able to transport the travel. It
will be a paying institution.
The new elevator, one of the largest and
most complete of the kind in the west, will
be formally opened for business in a few
weeks, and is another monument to the
credit of the enterprising capitalists that
are seeking Cairo. Willi the branch man
ufactory of the Singer sewing machine com
pany, the new oil mill now erecting, and a
first class cotton press in running order.it
is no wonder that the rapid increase of
population isou the rush, ami Cairo on tho
grand wave of prosperity.
Evansvillo Is represented by several of its
old citizens, whohavo taken up their resi
dence here. Captain C. T. Rudd, who is
agent for the Mississippi Central railroad,
lias been hero for a number of years, and is
representative of ono of your oldest and
most worthy families. 11 commands tho
respect of all, as ho has with- energy and
perseverance worked his way to his present
responsible position. In his employ aro
several Evansvillo people, among whom Is
Charlio E. Phillips, whose great and worthy
ambition Ih shown by tho talent In portrait
paint. Tho other day in a visit to his studio
your correspondent saw a picture of Judgo
Fowler from his easel which was true to
the life. And the talent of Mr. Phillips
showed that his preceptor, Poindexter, of
your city, under whom ho studied some
years, has left tho traces of that excellent
artist. Mr. Phillips will giro up his posi
tion in tho ofBco hero next month, and goes
to New York to further perfect himself in
the great ambition of his life. From what .
I have seen of his work I predict a prom
inence in the road ho has chosen to fame.
Here I shall stop, fearing that the bright
ami random pencilings of Cairo may take
up too much of tho valuable space is your
paper and may at some future time continue
facta and fancies when tho new opera-house,
now building here, is completed, and other
metropolitan improvements aro fully under
way.-1 1 Lvansvillc Coin ier. Timocii.
