CAIRO BULLETIN; FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 16. 1881.
Conolnded from r8 Four,
accidents to stoves. The iteam heating
machinery was furnished and put in posi
tion by Messrs. Crane, Eelley & Co., of
The stage machinery is of the latest imy
proved, furnished by Mr. H. 0. Raymonde,
an experienced worker in this line. Every
thing works to a charm and almost with
out tho least noise. Tho scenery for the
staga consists of the following pieces,
furnished and put up by Messrs.
Noxon, Ilalley & Toomey, of St. Louis:
Drop Curtain, Bastillian Prison, Rocky
Fshs, Garden, Flower Lawns, Set Rocks,
Set Trees, Palace Chamber, Rustic Kitchen,
Horizon or Sea View, Landscape, Sot
House, Terrace Pieces, Balconys, Palace
Arch, Perspective Street,' Cut Woods,
Garden Balustrade,' Set Cottage, Tormentor
Wing and Doors, Modern Chamber, Street
Arch, Gothic Chamber, Garden Statues,
Rustic Bridges. The above makes a com
plete stage equipment, and the different
scenes can be mountod with great accuracy.
One of the principal features of the furn
ishings is the beautiful drop curtain, which
was presented tothe company by a number
of appreciative citizens. It represents a
striking scene from some royal palace.
On either sido rich colored curtains divide
and disclose on the left a scene of a balco
ny, with tyle floor and low ornamental rail
ing. Beyond is a river, and beyond this a
mountain range fading away in the distance.
Altogether making a beautiful perspective
view. In the right centre is a medallion,
representing Paul and Virginia. Tho cur
tain is hung so as to slide instead of roll up,
which it doeB without the slightest percep
tible noise. It was manufactured by Mr.
W. J. Gunning, of Chicago, and seventy,
five gentlemen of the city contributed to
ward its purchase.
All the aisles and hall ways in the build
ing, including the directory, are covered
with brussel carpet of a crimson , color with
a small black figureAnd. the stair-ways' are
covered with cooS matting, so that persons
going in or opt do not disturb tho audience
Tho Windows and boxes are hung with
cuftins and crimson colored damask 1am-
l brcquins and the top of the balustrades
around the outer side of the parquet, par
quet circle and dress circle is covered with
crimson colored velvet, finished off around
the edge with a trimming of gilt.
1 Tho acoustic properties of the building are
perfect as everything else is, which is en
tirely so. Every sound emanating from the
stage can be heard distinctly in every part
of the auditorium and every sound of the
voice, even a whisper, can be understood.
In this respect, the Cairo opera house has
no superior in the United states.
Two large ventilators and a score or more
of windows will furnish all necessary fac
ilities for ventilation, which is of such great
necessity to all places where large crowds
of people gather, and which is so often
neglected in public buildings.
As a whole the Cairo opera house is
one of the fincBt and most perfect in every
way in the country, and as a Chicago gen
tleman, who has traveled much and visited
nearly all the large places of amusement
in tho United States, remarked to the writer
a few days ago, it is a credit to the state of
Illinois. It is especially a credit to the city
of Cairo and a lasting monument to the
public spirit of those of her good citizens
who have contributed so liberally of their
time and means towards its completion.
Among tho members of the company who
have been especially active in tne move
ment since it began, and who have taken
especial pains to see that the work was pro
perly completed, may be mentioned Col. S.
S. Taylor, Captain T. W. Shields, and Mr.
M. F. Gilbert. These gentlemen were
members of the executive and building
committees, and kept a constant supervision
over the work as it progressed.
The names of those citizens who have
contributed of their own means so as to
make the completion of the building possi
blc, in other words, the present stockhold
ers of the company are as follows : W. P.
Halliday, T. W. Shields, Salens Fetter, D.
Hartman, P. G. Schuh, S. 8. Taylor, Louis
Herbert, Chas. Gsligher, C. Pink, J. A;

TOE DEDICATION CEHEU0NV.
The occasion of the opening of the grand
institution of refined pleasure was, of courso,
an auspicious one and not to be slight
ed by any who could poBsibly manage ' to
be present. The manner of opening it, too,
was in itself a great attraction, for Hon.
John II. Oberly, who was advertised to
make the dedication address, was known
by every man, woman and child in tho city
and tho country to bo a man of rare ability
as an orator. Tbo Fay Tompleton troupe,
which had been advertised to present the
first play on the new etsge, was preceded
here by its fame and lent its force to the
general ' attraction. Furthermore, tho
managors of tho opera house had made
exteuaiva use of printer's ink to lot the peo
plo kuow that these great forces would be
hero to entertain all who might come to the
new opera house last night. Therefore, it
is not to be wondered at that a great rush
wa mailb for the entrance as soon as it was
thrown open, and kept op without signs of
weakening . for aovoral hours, until the
theatre within was crowded with nearly all
the bust people in the city, and
presented a festive appearance such
as is seldom witnessed in larger
cities than this! For half an hour
or more the audience entertained itself de
lightfully by admiring the beautiful inte
rior of the building; then the orchestra
played several of its choicest airs. Tet a
little moro waitinc, and the familiar face
and form of tho orator of the evening, -Hon.
John II. Oberly, appeared on the stage,
preceded by Captain Thomas W. Shields,
who introduced him. The audience receiv
ed tho speaker with a hearty burst of ap
plause and then suddenly relapsed into per
fect silence as tho speaker began. Mr.
Oberly spoke eloquently and most appro
priately as only he can, for about twenty
minutes, during which timd he
was repeatedly interrupted by applause.
Mr. Oberly left tho stage amid deafening
applause, which was interrupted, by the
orchestra which played a very beautiful
air as a preface to the first rising of the
curtain. The curtain rose amid another
burst of applause, and then the perform
aoce began. The ploy "Mascotte," which
waa most appropriate to the occasion
fascinated the audience from the beginning,
and the effectj as the piece progressed was
visible in every face in the auditorium
Fay Templeton, the central figure wherever
else she has been, was the same here and
elicited frequent merited applause.- Her
support, too, was fully up to the expecta
tions of the audience, and all sustained
splendidly the1 good reputation gained
throughout tho country.
If tho worth of anything is proven by its
results, then surely DR. BULL'S COUGH

The principal event outside of tho
opening of tho new opera house yesterday,
was the burning of an old ice house just
above the Singer sowing . machine factory
buildings. Tho building was razed to the
ground before tho fire department could
get there. No further damage was done.
The transfer boat II. S. McComb did good
service with her pumping machinery.
Tho Mascotte, as produced by the Fay
Templeton troupo last night will certainly
soon become one of the most popular plays
in tho country, and will place Miss Fay's
namo among the brightest stars in the fir
mitmeut of the American stage. Miss Fay
was, of courso, the principal attraction up
on tho stage, ' but Miss Alice Vane, as
"Fiametta," and Messrs. Seth M. Crane, as
"Pippo," John Tompleton, as "Prince Lo
renzo," and Wm. M. Fuller, as "Rocco,"
