Decorative painting has reached a high
state of perfection in Cairo. There seems to
have existed for some timo past a rivalry
among the merchants of the city as to who
should have the most attractive front.
There is much to be pleWd at in this
rivalry, and it is only to he hoped that it
will continue until every house in the city
presents an attractive appearance. The
painters of the city have now more than
ever before an opportunity to display their
originality and ability, and several of them
have shown that they possess a superior
talent. No doubt the Commercial avenue
merchants look upon the elegant fronts of
their business houses as good advertise
ments and not without reason.
But they are more than
an advertisement for the individual
merchant, they are an advertisement for the
whole city which, few strangers will fail to
notice with favor. The people of Cairo,
too, will feel proud of their enter
prising business men, and the painters will
full upon their necks and weep for very joy.
The Bulletin has mado a grave
charge against the evening paper: a charge
which is too serious to bo passed over light
ly and which it feels called upon to sus
tain more specifically. As before 6tated
"the lio" always carries with it deep dis
grace, either to the person who gives it, or
to him who takes oris compelled to take
it. We lay it down as a generally accepted
principle mat n mo giver can
not substantiate the charge then
the disgrace rests with him
and he is unworthy the esteem of all gen
tlemen and ladies, and, upon this ground,
The Bulletin is willing to stand. If ho
does substantiate tho charge, or if the
charge remains unrcsented, even undenied,
then the accused must stand convicted,
either of an offense against society and
common honesty, the blackness of which
cannot even be lightened by sincere apolo
gies, much less by flippant, evasive squibs,
or, lie must stand convicted of an ignorance
which, because of its evil manifestations,
can only excite the heartiest contempt of
men and women, who respect and honor
truth, wherever found, for truth's own sake.
And, upon this ground, the evening paper
is compelled to stand. But to the point.
The Bulletin asserts unequivocally that
the evening paper lied, cither ignorantly or
intentionally, when it made, among a num
ber of others which were untrue, suhtdan
tially, the following statements: lbt. That
"the city and county authorites uniformly
allowed unfortunate people to suffer in the
streets of the city without giving them aid'';
2d. That "no provisions are mado by the
city or county to care for
such unfortunate, suffering people";
3d. That "the county overseer of
the poor did not pretend to undertake to
do more than perhapB bury the unfortu
nate's;" 4th. That "the county board had
recently ordered the county overseer of the
poor to pursue a more liberal policy toward
sick paupers;" 5th. That "the city had
never done anything for paupers but furn
ish a few coffins when they wero dead; Oth.
That "the marine hospital is a relief to the
charitable people of the city, becauso it
creats annually a lar.'c number of charity
cases;"' 7th. That "Dr. Wood said that
every position taken by Tub Bulletin in
this controversy was wrong;" 8th. That
Tub Bulletin lias manifested heartless
ness toward suffering poor;'' Oth. That
The Bulletin "has made efforts to pre
vent tho city and county authorities from
exhibiting n philanthropic spirit;" and
10th. That "tho evening paper has had any
influence whatever in shaping tho actions
of the city or county authorities, or in
arousing a moro charitable spirit among
tho people of Cairo." Tins Bulletin
charges that tho above arc substantially tho
evening paper's statements and that each
ami every one of them conveys an untruth,
as The Bulletin has proven in previous
answers to them.
