Owing to tho recent sudden changes

Several Cairo business men havo taken
silver dollars, commonly called "Daddy
Dollars," which are probably the best
counterfeit ever put in circulation. Tho
bogus dollar is beautifully made aud has
a slight iron nppearanco which is often
found in genuine standard dollars. It is
Bilver plated and acid doeB not affect it un
less the surface is scratched up. Tho weight
is the marvelous point in the deception.
The counterfeit as it stands would pass in
size easily and its weight would not be de
tected on uhy but a fino scale. It weighs
08 per cent, of the genuine, while tho aver
ago good counterfeit docs not weigh more
than 7.'5 or 80 per cent. Tho ring is excel
lent, and the silver plating hs obviated tho
usual greasy feeling in counterfeit dollars.
The coin is almost perfect, and will un
doubtedly create much trouble in business
circles. Tho date of tho coin is 1878, al
though that may bo changed in tho futuro
by tho makers. The experts at tho sub
treasury pronounce it tho most dangerous
counterfeit dollar that has ever appeared.

The affirmation that Mr. Skinner, for
merly of tho Wabash railroad, used the
language attributed to him in a recent issue
of Tiik Bulletin, unlike tho denial, tests
not upon anonymous, but upon responsible
authority a reputable newspaper. If Mr.
Skinner was wronged, he will probably
care enough for his reputation to deny that
he used the infamous language. Until he

should hold their peace; for their
denial is not of sufficient weight.
The Announcement previously made
that Rev. B. Y. flenrgo would speak to the
temperance people at Reform hall caused
a large crowd to assemble there last even
ng. As was proven by subsequent events,
the audience was not composed exclusively
of men and women who have always been
indentified with the temperance work since
its inception in this city, but that there
were present a r umber who wero not
formerly connected with tho club.
Mr. 0. M. Aldcn occupied the chair and
introduced Mr. George, after a formal open
ing of tho meeting. Tho speaker occupied
tho stand for about an hour, during which
ho satisfied his audience, by the combined
power of eloquence and argument, that
nothing but total abstinence was a sure
guarantee against drunkenness. Ho was
often interrupted by tho hearty applause
of his hearers. After Rev. Georgo had
finished, the chairman, in a few well-chosen
words, called upon thnso who pretended to
bo in sympathy with tho purposes of tho
club, but who were not active members
thereof, to manifest more enthusiasm, to
boldly announce th ir sympathy, became
activo members and thus encourage, rather
than discourage, those who wero
devoting their time, minds and moans
to tho furtherance of the good cause
Mr. Aldcn concluded by requesting all
present, who were not members of tho club
and wearers of tho red or white ribbon,
to como forward, sign the plcdgo and re
ceivo the ribbon whilo tho nudionco sang
"Come, Brothers, Will You Jnin Ufl," to
which request four men rcspondod.
Tho chairman thon announced that
tho officers of tho Tcmpcranco
Allianco and tho organization of Good
Tomplars would meet for tho transaction of
business at Reform ball next Monday evon-
inrf. and that the Young Temporanco Peo-
pie would hold their regular mooting at
