CAIRO MJLLETIN; SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 8, 1881.
Several citizens of Cairo havo of late
been paying some attention to a very good
plan of advertising tho city, which consists
of having maps mado, showing tho city of
Cairo and tho county and towns surround
ing it for fifty miles each way, and show
ing also tho many railroads present and
prospective which centre hero. Theso maps
are to bo distributed over a wide range of
country, in all tho principal cities, so as to
give the public generally a correct idea of
what Cairo really is and what its chances
for speedy anil prodigous growth are. The
firm of Alvin J. Johnson & Son, of New
York City, has been written to concerning
the price of the publ ication of such a map
and they havo replied that a copper plate
of the size (four feet square) and character
desired would cost two hundred dollars.
Tho gentlemen having this matter under
consideration believe, not without reason,
that the plan properly carried out would do
Cairo much good.
At a meeting of tho Ancor fire compa
ny, held at tho new engine house last Thurs
day night a committee consisting of Messrs.
Henry Duuker, James Carroll, Barney
Dunn and John Morgan, wns appointed
for tho purpose of soliciting from the well
to do citizens subscriptions of money to aid
the company in tho purchase of a boll for
tho engino house. A bell in io engine
house is almost an absolute necessity. If a
firo breaks out either iu the day or night
time, the persons who see it first can give
tho alarm only by cries of fire which are not
very efficient in awakening tho firemen
who live in all parts of tho Fifth ward. So
that the efficiency of tho company nnd the
Bafety against fire of tho people of tho Fifth
ward in particular, depends in a very great
measure upon a bell with which to give tho
nlarm and arouse the firemen. Upon tho
recommendation of a prominent citizen
who has had some dealings with tho firm,
Messrs. Fulton & Son, of Pittsburg, have
been written to by the committee and it
was ascertained that a bell weighing four
hundred pounds, which is the Bizo the com
mittee thinks it necessary to have, will cost
ono hundred aud twenty-five dollars. The
committee will call upon tho citizens, in
conformity with its instructions in a day or
two and it should receive proper encourage
ment. Prompted by The Bulletin's little
item referring to Mr. Oberly, of the Bloom
ington Bulletin as a "bishop," tho latter
paper says: "Newspapers in various parts
of the state are expatiating over tho re
markable resemblance of the editor of the
Bulletin to Bishop Sejrmore. One paper
says, 'the bishop and tho editor look enough
alike to be twins.1 This may be truo, but
that the bishop's twin is very unlike the
bishop in many respects, every unfortunate
about the Bulletin is bound to believe.
That the editor and the bishop look alike is
all that can be said. Strike this establish
ment some day when things arc not run
uing very smoothly, and tho editor is off
his base, as it were. Lord; tho place that
Bob Ingcrsoll says docs not exist, would,
for tho time being, be a paradise. To see
blue blazes and smell brimstone is nothing
unusual here. But then to watch over a
religious flock is quito a different thing
from running a democratic newspaper of
fice in a republican town. When the Bul
letin becomes more settled, and democrats
become more numerous in Bloomington,
then, probably, tho editor will not only
look like tho bishop, but will be good like
the bishop, for then tho climate will bo
more congenial to his nature; but if the
bishop could be induced to let go of bis
present duties and spend a year or two of
daily work with his twin, he might bring
about this change for tho better sooner than
it will otherwise come. According to tho
bible, there is more joy among the angels
over ono sinner that rcpentcth than over
ninety ami nine righteous men that are
saved, or words to that effect. If tho bishop
can bring the editor into the fold, ho will
havo done work equal to tho saving of ninety
and nine ordinary sinners, and all of tho
forty sorrowing souls about the Bulletin es
tablishment will bleBS him.
Corruption, republican corruption eve
rywhere ! The federal government is taint
ed from the cabinet officials down through
every department, not excepting that of
justice. Thcro are big jobs and little jobs,
by big officials and little officials. Tho
secretary of tho treasury steals from tho
people with tho stuue careless freedom as
does the butler, and helps others, not offi
cials of tho government, to steal also.
Statu governments, too, are corrupt boiiio,
made so by the inlluenco of federal money
and federal political influence, others, made
so by local politicians for tho local success
of tho party. Cities and counties, too, aro
groaning under tho heel of republican dis
honesty and among thoso latter several
counties in Southern Illinois find congenial
companions. The Shawnee News, a stal
wart republican paper, in speaking of the
recent discovery of a deficit in the acc
of Jefferson county's republican traur,
says "there is a clan in Mt. VernoJ .nose
ambitions reach throughout Soueru Illi
nois, aud even into state offices. Ono C.
W. Pavey, we understand, has signed a card
published in tho Mt. Vermon Exponent, ex
pressing an 'opinion' that Lindley's books
are correct. This Tavey is tho same who
thought he was 'running' for congress
against Dick Tow nsliend at tho luto national
election. Tho Exponent is his special cham
pion iu tho attempt to disniiBS J. C. Willis,
the faithful revenue collector for tho Thir
teenth Illinois district, that Pavey may have
that position. Llndley was formerly a part
ner of Polk, tho forger and absconding
real estate agent and abstractor, and is a
brother-in-law to tho editor of tho Expo
nent, and that paper mado a public confes
sion that Lindley was 'left' as a security of
the run-away Polk. So it will be seen
how very naturally tho whole business
hangs together and fits like clockwork ; and
that tho party in Southern Illinois may be
on its guard, it becomes tho duty of every
republican paper to give such facts as exist."
Tho usual high school room exercises
yesterday afternoon were opened with a
couple of sonjjs by the school from tho new
song books. Tho literary exercises con
sisted chiefly of compositions. The subjects
nnd composers were as follows: "Scot
land," by Miss Lizzie Green; "Tho Tele
graph," by Miss Alice Halliday; "Colum
bus," by Master Miles Gilbert; "Country
Schools," by Miss Nellie Fisher; "Tho Staff
of Life," by Miss Lila Halliday; "Tho
Country," by Miss Jennio McIIalo; "Tho
Class of '81," by Miss Ruth Barnes; "Tho
Country Home," by Miss Mary Irvin;
"Skating," by Master Walter Bristol ; "Olym
pic Games," by Miss Maud Loflin; "Beg
gars," by Miss Saddio Wheeler; "Trifles,"
by Miss Wintio Dunning ; "Skates," by
Master Willie Gilbert; "Examination," by
Miss Alice Henderson : "Georgo Washing
ton," by Master Fred Galligher; "Hobbies,"
by Miss Eva Shcppard; "The Shartas," by
Miss Addie Christman; "Hiber
nations," by Miss Lulu Phillips;
"Salt," by Master James Galigan ; "Health,"
by Miss Letttio Corlis; "Giants
Squid," by Miss Minnie Bennett; composi
tion, by Miss Jeannetto Miller. Twice the
reading of compositions was interrupted by
tho giving out of historical questions. Tho
first was by Miss Minnio Breibach, and
referred to "Mesopotamia ;" the second was
by , and was found to be "Cyrus."
In conclusion tho school sang a couple of
beautiful songs. As a wholo tho exercises
wero very meritorious as well as interest
ing. Several compositions were especially
so from the fact that they treated of live
subjects, were well written and well read.
The one, entitled "Hobbies," read by Miss
Shcppard, contained a suggestion with re
ference to writing compositions, which the
writer termed "the Hobby of tho School,"
that might bo profitably followed by somo
of the scholars. Among others, tho com
positions of Miss Wintio Dunning, on
"Trifles," and Miss Ruth Barnes, on "The
Class of '81," were especially interesting.
It is to be regretted that tho parents of the
scholars interest and citizens
generally, manifest so little in
these exercises. Every citizen inter
ested in the public schools of the city (and
thcro are few who are not), is in duty bound
to visit the schools at least once in a week
or ten days, and thus encourage both tho
teachers and tho scholars in the arduous
work they so steadily pursue.
The opening of the amusement season
in Cairo suggests something for the benevo
lent people hero to do which has been done
every year by the good people of many oth
er cities. It is the giving of a grand, fash
ionable ball for the benefit of the poor of
tho city. In St. Louis such a ball has been
given every fall except this fall, for years
past, by tho officers of the city, and tho pro
ceeds have often reached tho very largo
sum of twelve thousand dollars enough to
relievo tho wants of thousands of worthy
poor families all the year round. This
winter a society called the "Rosicrucian"
society has taken charge of the ball, which
will be given on tho 20th instant, in the
Merchants Exchange. It will pay all tho
expenses of the ball and devote tho gross
receipts to tho nohlo purpose mentioned.
Tho Globe-Democrat predicts that thoso
receipts will reach at least the sum of ten
thousand dollars and adds: "There should
be hearty co-operation w:th tho RoHicru
cians rr.Hicr than anything in the nature of
rivalry or opposition. Tho charity ball
will, we havo no doubt, bo mado a regular
annual featuro of our St. Louis social life.
Let it havo a good start this year, ami thero
need be no fear for its success in tho fu
ture." Why cannot Cairo follow St. Louis'
good example? Not that th c poor of Cairo,
when discovered, aro not provided for, be
cause, as every ouo knows, they arc ; but
that thcro may bo some system in tho good
work somo way, first, to provide tho
means without resorting to tho slow and
disagreeable method of soliciting private
subscriptions, aud second, to facilitato the
administration of tho work, so that those in
need may be readily discovered and prompt
ly aided. As it is now, while persons do
not actually die of cld and hunger, yet
they often suffer a great deal, especially in
winter, before they aro discoverod and re
lieved. And then the ono or two good
people, who take upon themselves the bur
den of providing help from tli.cit .O-'JSIV kfd
cr and wardroi" and 'pocket-book, or of
polluting aid from their friends, who do
not aud cannot, with tho best will, do jus
tice to the cause of charity. They succeed,
of course, in relieving tho caso 'that is
brought.to their notice, by individual sub
scription, etc., but they owe somotliing to
their own loved ones at home and cannot,
therefore, bo expected to spend day after
day for weeks in collecting monoy and oth
er necessaries for tho poor of tho city. And
if they did attempt to do so their requests
would soon becomo monotonous and boring
to tho gonoral public und tho work of char
ity would soon bo looked upon with gonor
al disgust. Tho peoplo of Cairo aro a gen

on a suffering human being and who would
contribute gladly and liberally toward the
establishment of a fund to rolieve the poor
people of the city. It is only necessary to
call upon them to do so and the rceponse
will be prompt. The question which would
seem to be tho most essential, is how to
make tho request so that it may reach every
body who is willing to contribute and in the
most agreeable way to all concerned. And
this is probably best answered by tho sug
gestion of a ball under the management of
some of our prominent ladies and gentle
men, in ono of the largest halls in the city,
whero all could go and spend the hours in
pleasant and healthful enjoyment, while at
the same time contributing toward tho ac
complishment of a noble purpose. The
fund thus raised could bo placed in tho
hands of a committee of ladies, who could
dispense It as necessity might from time to
time require. If such a ball in St. Louis
produces ten thousand dollars, in Cairo it
should bring together a thousand or two at
least. Once begun, tho ball will readily
become here, as it is in St. Louis, "a reg
ular annual featuro" of Cairo Bocial lifo
and bring to tho first successful inaugura
tors and subsequent managers a namo of
which thoy might bo justly prounJ.
