The ' circuit court was occupied the
most of yesterday with the caso of Jacob
Bradly who was acquittod of the charge
of burglary; but found guilty of larceny.

In Justice Robinson's court yesterday,
one Jacob Halterman was fined twenty-five
dollars and costs for carrying concealed
weapons, and given a stay to leave the city
within a certain number of hours. He had
been intoxicated nearly all night before, and
was found in that Btate by Officer Tyler,
who jailed him.
Mr. Wm J. Duffy the gentlemanly
agent of tho Fay Templeton opera com
pany,, says that theconpany goes from here
to Little Rock, Arkansas, to play an en
gagement of several nights there; from
there they make a tour of several largo
cities of the south and will, probably, on
their return trip, give Cairo another visit.
It seems that the opening of tho opera
house and the splendid entertainment
furnished there by tho Fay Templeton
troupe has had a wholesome influence even
upon that class of persons who are usually
so conspicuous in our police courts; for
police business has been unusually dull
within tho last few days. No better evi
dence of the power for good high toned
amusement can bo asked.
A1 though a very good audienco greeted
the Fny Templeton troupe at the opera
bouse last ni.;ht, there was also a good
sized audienco at Reform hall. Several
gentlemen made interesting little addresses,
and were attentively listened to. Some
business of more or less interest was also
transacted. The next meeting will be
held in tho new hall.
Chief Myers desires information con
cerning the doings of a man who has been
making the round of tho city in tho role
of a deaf and dumb man. He is tall has
light hair, red face, red mustache and
light chin whiskers. He wears a small hat
and seed clothes. Persons knowing any
thing about the individual should commu
nicate their knowledge to the chief.
Tho newspaper correspondents of
Chicago and other cities who were present
to witness and write up the opening of the
new opera houso in this city, were very
favorably Impressed with the appearance of
tho building. One of them, Mr. Phocian
Howard, pronounced it as tho finest in
Illinois uutside of Chicago, and a credit to
the state, Mr. Howard is certainly com
petent to judge, for ho has seen all the
large opora houses in the country.
A runaway team of horses, hitched to
an empty wood wagon, was the occasion of
some excitement in the vicinity of Seven
teenth and Walnut streets ycBtcrday forenoon-
Tho driver was standing some dis
tance away from the team,, talking to a
friend, when a number of geese came sud
denly flying over the commons, sending
forth loud cries as they flew over the horses'
heads. This was the cause of the runaway.
Tho horses ran for a distance of several
squares through tho weeds, throwing the
wood rack from the wagon into the weeds
in a confused wreck, but were indnced to
halt by another team which was driven in
front of them as they were about to cross a
road. Beyond breaking the rack, no
damage was done.
Messis. Noxon, Halley A Toomoy,tho
painters of the scones for the itago of the
new opera houso, will bo hero for several
weeks yet, before their work Js finishod.
They havs yet four or five pieces to paint
which will occupy their tiuiu until then.
Their work waa tho subject of much favora
ble comment by tho large audience lost
night and tho night before, and it certainly
deserves jt all, fur every scene presented
during the two performances was a marvel
of beauty and truth to nature. Tho man
ner in which the mechanism of the stage
worked, also elicited much praise. Not a
hitch occutred on the first night all moved
as smoothly, and locked as "perfectly as
though the scenes bad boen shifted and
tested for many months before. '.The au
diences were certainly pleased with every
minute feature of. their surroundings, as
well as with tho performances on the stage.
Another cultured audience gathered at
tho opera houso lastnight to see tho per
formance of Olivette by tho Fay Templeton
and to say that every one present was de
lighted from tho beginning to the end of
the play, is putting it very mildly. The
piece itself is full of mirth and pathos and
music, which in their happy blending of
one with the other hold the auditor's atten
tion firmly to tho end and movo them to
laughtor, or to tears as the case may bo.
Miss Fay was perfect in her part of Oliv
ette, find called forth frequet bursts of ap
plause She was perfectly at home in her
past and charmed her auditors with the
naluralncHS of her movements and utter
ances. Among tho rest of the company,
each of whom did splendidly, Mr. Seth M.
Crano, ns "Captain DeMerriraac;" Mr. Jos.
Handel, as "Valentine;" Mr. John Temple
ton, who played the scheming and reckless
"Due Dcs It's," and little Miss Lady Lee, as
the littlo "Cabin Boy," and Miss Alice
Coleman, in her celebrated cornet solos, and
Alice Vane, as the "Countess Russelmon"
all deserve special mention; for they all
received the hearty applause of the audi
ence repeatedly, showing that their efforts
and ability were duly appreciated.
The Bloomington Bulletin says; "May
or Iliirrison, of Chicago, is in favor of col
lecting a large portion of tho revenues of
that city through the license system. The
suggestion is a wise one, and should be
acted upon in other cities than Cbicugo.
As the Chicago News says: 'Under the
present system it is the person of moderate
means generally those who own small
properties that pay tho largest share of
taxis.' In Bloomington the license system
might be applied wisely in several instances.
Take, for instance-, tho street car company.
It has taken possession of Main street, has
laid a wagon-wheel breaking T rail, and
makes the street almost useless as a public
thoroughfare. The city council Bhould re
quire the company to take up this T rail
and put down a tram rail, and then should
impose an aunual license of a hundred or
two hundred dollars on each car run by the
company. In this way tho city could ob
tain a small fund which it might expend in
partially repairing the damages which the
street railroad is continually doing to one
of our important streets."
This city has extraordinary facilities
for doing business and handling an enor
mous commerce, but facilities will amount
to nothing uuless they be ultized and ope
rated with the utmost energy and activity.
The people of this city have an opportu
nity to get rich if they will make proper
exertions, but opportunities which aro not
improved and followed up aro powerless to
do any sort of good. This is what has been
told the people all along, and no opportu
nity has been lofat to urge upon all tho ne
cessity of making the exertions and arrange
ments required to get the greatest possi
ble good out of the facilities and opportu
nities that are being prepared for their
benefit. It is utterly absurd to think great
capitalists and railroad men are investing
tens of millions in railroads to make the
people of Cairo rich. If our people do not,
hower, use the railways, and ultize their
facilities and improve their opportunities to
tho utmoat thny will, in the expressive slang
of the period, bo "badly left." The time
is comingVhcn there will bo a legitimate
chance for all who will worn to do well,
but they must work, and work intelligently
to get tho full benefit of their opportu
nities. The landlords and property holders
who forestall that timo by raising rants and
extorting from hard working and not too-well-paid
nrople more than they are able to
pay, or than the houses aro worth, will simp
ly put off tho prosperity which they hopo to
enjoy. Trade is not obliged to coroo to
Cairo. It will only como here if it is pro
fitable to do so. It can eusilj be drivon
away by excessive expenses of living and
carrying on business, and it will be very
easy to kill the preciousjgoose before tin
gle golden egg shall have been laid. For
the present, while prospects are unusually
bright business men are doing very fairly.
They are not, however, increasing the sala
ries and wages of employes to- any con
siderable extent, and there is no sense or
reason in increasing the expenses of these
persons by raising house rent. Perhaps
thcro are fewer houses empty than for a long
time, and thore certainly it a greater de
mand for good little houses than thore has
been for some time; but tho proper way to
moot this evidence of . prosperity is not to
raise rent and everything else but wages,
and thus suppress it by driving away those
who would make their homes here; but the
proper way is to meet these strangors with
open arms and purses, build them houses
and rent them at reasonable figures. Thus
tho rents will be kept down to a reasonable
amount, and tho stream of strangers flow
ing Into our gates will increase rather than
diminish. . ' . N

Senator Hoar, of Massachusetts, made
an eloquent speech, Wednesday, in the sen
ate in favor of the appointment of a com
mittee to investigate the question of woman
suffrage, and incidentally denounced the
brutal treatment to which women were sub
jected under the old common law of Eng
land. ' In his opinion tho participation of
women would have a refining influence on
politics, and would play a particularly use
ful part in determining the government of
schools, in determining the policies which
shall govern our civil service, the license
question and others. Senator Vest was op
posed even to the appointment of the com
mittee to investigate, holding that female
suffrage would degrade women to the level
of masculine ward jwliticians. Tub Bul
letin sides with Senator Hour on this sub
ject, firmly believing that a republican
form of government cannot exist consistent
ly, so long as over one-half of its best citi
zens are deprived of tho highest privilege
of citizenship. Mr. Vest's argument, that
female suffrage would degrade woman, is of
equal' force against male suffrage ; but we
will wager that Mr. Vest is just inconsistent
enough to oppose any scheme to deprive
upon this ground the better claBs of male
citizens of the right to cast tho ballot. Mr.
Vost seems to believo that tho important
right of voting is of itself so mean and
filthy a thing that the best citizens of the
land cannot exercise it without becoming
contaminated ; but he has probably never
thought that the very reason why this right
has sunk into such disrepute, is becauso it
has been given up to and allowed to be con
trolled by tho low class of men. Tho leg
itimate outcome of his theory would teem
to bo that the polls are of tight the property
and rendezvous of the scum of society
everywhere, and that no decent person
should allow himself to bo secu thero. The
great trouble of most all local elections now-a-dayt
is that Mr. Vest's theory is too faith
fully carried out; tho best men in tho city
remain at home and surrender tho polls to
'e bummer element; hence the result ofton
is that bad men aro elected to office. The
only proper way to correct this evil and re
deem tho election polls from the disgraco
ful depths into which they havo sunk in
somo communities, becauso of tho careless
ness of the bettor class of citizens, is to out
vote the bummer element render tho
better class ot voters iu tho majority, the
greater the better; and tho best way to
do this is to enfranchise all the best citi
sons in the country, without regard to color,
sex or previous condition, etc.
i The popular and efficient representative
of the Watertown and other insurance
companies in Grand Rapids, Mich., Mr.
Wm. Marshall, writes: I cannot too highly
praise the curative qualities of that wonder
ful Remedy, St Jacobt Oil, for it cured mo
of Rheumatism,' whon other romedlos
failed. I would not be without a bottle
again for ten dollars oven if I had topay
that muctt for it.
