Bloomington, the birth place of tho
republican party, has for tho first time in
many years, solected a democratic mayor, a
democratic council and a democratic police
magistrate. Mayor Trotter, tho democratic
candidate for mayor, was re-elected. This
glarious result can be attributed only to
tho iufluuuce of Hon. John II. Oborly and
the Bloomington Bulletin, for from their
advent there dates democratic success. Tho
democrats of Bloomington and McLean
county can not afford to let the Bulletin
succumb, and thoy will not, republican
prophecies, fathered by republican wishes,
to the contrary notwithstanding.

Tenth street pond was always tho last to

allowing water to pass through freely in
spite of the fact that Lake Edwards is
nearly all gone. Tho upper pond continues
to fall slowly. It is probable that another
free excursion to the gap will be given by
the ferryboat Three States this afternoon.
Tho erafton fishing club has now a
membership of eighty six persons and all
take a deep interest in the club. At tho
meetinc of the trustees held a few nights
ago it was decided to make a chartered
institution out of it and to apply for a char
tor at onco. This will make the organiza
tion a permanent one and give to it powers
which it would otherwise not possess. It
is tho object to raise tho membership to an
even hundred and to organizo under the
charter about the first of May ; persons wish
ing to join should therefore apply before
that date. Tho club now has eight or ten
fiats, which will be taken to tho lake for
use in fiBlung as soon as tho club is thorough
ly organized. An amount ot money suffi
cient to pay the first years lease of tho lake
has already been collected from the subscri
bers and enough more is duo to defray all
exponscs necessary to make the contem
plated improvements in and about tho lake.
From tho Anna Farmer and Fruit
Grower of last week the following items
concerning the fruit of Southern Illinois
are culled : Although there may not bo as
largo a yield ot fruit as usual this year,
there is no doubt but that prices will bo
good. Tho Ben Davis applo is again
ahead. We do not find a single apple of
this kind that is in the least injured, while
hardly a Bound Wincsap can be found.
The Early Richmond cherry is almost en
tirely uninjured and will furnish a full
crop. Tho sweet cuernes are aooui an
killed. The peach buds along tho Hudson
in Eastern New York aro all killed, and
but very few peaches will bo grown this
year in that state. The strawberry ship
ment will doubtless begin much earlier
than last year. There are already good
sized berries in most patches. Grapes
were cut back aboutone-half their new
growth by tho cold of last week, but will
givo a good crop notwithstanding. The
Louise Bonne de Jersey is tho only pear on
our grounds that is now all right.
It is. not generally known that there
exists in this country an association known
as "The American Association of the Red
Cross," the object of which is to furnish
relief in cases of national suffering from
"war, pestilence, famine, fire and otfier
national calamities." It is an international
organization, having its origin at Geneva ; it
was organized under a treaty suggested by
an international conference at Geneva, and
approved recently by President Arthur and
the senate. It has already a great many
branch organizations in state, cities and
towns, ail acting under tho national organ
izntion, but working mainly for tho relief
of those in their immediate neighborhood.
During the great suffering from the late
flood in the Mississippi valley the national
institution co-operated with tho federal
government in sending relief to the suffer
ing people, and Bent agents out all along
the line of the flood to ascertain tho char
acter and amount of relief needed. One
of these agenta, 3Ir. J. B. Uubbell, ot Ann
Arbor, Mich., passed through here not long
ago and inquired after tho condition of the
people of this city and county. He learned
that all necessary aid had been rendered
and left for tho south. Cairo needs some
charitable institution almost as much as
anything else, and those who havo always
bcon foremost in good work of this kind
might find a study of tho methods and
character of tho Red Cross association of
Memphis Avalanche, April IS: The
City of Cairo, which passed down for
Vicksburg on her first voyago Sunday
morning, was thronged with visitors dur

that could have been built," or words to
that effect. She has proven entirely satis

. A COLLISION.
Yesterday afternoon about throo o'clock
engines number 217 nnd 219 of tho Illinois
Central railroad collided on Ohio levee at
the head of the incline, causing tho latter
and several fiat cars to bo seriously dam
aged. No. 217 was coming up tho incline
from tho transfer boat and No. 219
was running by tho incline
with six or eight empty flat cars. But the
switch was turned wrong, and when No,
217 reached the top of the levee, both en
gines came together with terrific force. No.
219 was derailed and so badly torn that
nothing short of entire remodeliug will
make her serviceable again. Thotrucks of
two of tho Hut cars were also derailed and
reversed. Tho other engine managed to
pass on without sustaining much damage.
A large forco of men were at once put to
work to remove tho wreck, and there was
little, if any, interruption of traffic.
Tho readers of tho Bulletin or the pub
lic generally, which is the same thing, will
be pleased to learn that tho Cairo box and
basket factory will be rebuilt as soon as
possible. Although Messrs Bell & Halliday,
the proprietors of the old institution, havo
not as yet come to any definite conclusion
with refcrenco to tho mat
ter, The bulletin representative
was given permission by Captain Halliday
yosterday to state positively that the factory
would be rebuilt. Captain Halliday was,
from tho start, in favor of rebuilding as
soon as possible, and it soems that Mr.
Bell is likewise inclined. It will neces
sarily be some time before such an institu
tion as the destroyed factory was, so exten
sive, so perfect in arrangement, and fur
nished with every appliance and device for
doing work in tho quickest and best man
ner, can be replaced; but it is very en
couraging to know that it will bo replaced,
at all. The agent of ono of tho companies
in which the factory was insured, was in
the city yesterday and adjusted tho losses
Tho other companies will probably
follow in quick succession, and
then the preliminary steps for
beginning tho new establishment will
The great actual loss which the firm and
community sustained in the destruction of
tho old factory is enhanced greatly by the
interruption of tho business just at this
season of the year, when tho demand for
fruit boxes and baskets of all kinds is to
great It requires not a small degree of
courage and enterprise to so speedily recov
er from bo heavy a stroke, but it seems that
Messrs. Bell & Halliday are equal to the
emergency, and will repair the loss to tho
community as soon as possible.
YESTERDAY'S TERRIBLE TORNADO.
GREAT DESTRUCTION OF PROrEnTl MRS.
I. HUDSON SERIOUSLY INJURED.
At about two o'clock yesterday afternoon
Sergeant W. H. Ray sent word to different
parts of tho city that a strong gale or
cyclono was approaching this city, as evi
denced by his weather instruments in tho
signal service office His warning was
heeded by many. Ou tho river front tho
boats, and tugs, and flats were all moro
securely fastened, and in tho city most poo
plo saught their homes and fastened win
dows and doors. In tho moantime, though
the air was very quiet and tho Bky tolera;
bly clear, thero was visible a suspicious
darkness on the distant western horizon,
which grew inkier and ap
proached nearer very rapidly. About
45 o'clock a thick white cloud
was seen to approach tho city from tho
northwest and immodiatly after tho city was
Btruck by tho hurricane heavily laden with
water, which Hwept over tho city for about
ono minuto with awful forco, leaving many
ruins in its tract. It is tho opinion of ser
geant Ray that tho cyclono extended up as
far as St. Louis, as tho thermom
eter and barometer, at that
point and hero, were at tho samo stage at
tho same timo. It was also currently re
ported last night that a dispatch had been
roceivod giving news of extensive destruc
tion at Jonosboro.
A walk around tho city after tho storm
revealed tho following:
Tho wind, entering at tho rear gable end,
toro a portion of tho roof from tho rosldonco
of Col. I. B. Hudson. A quantity of brick
and mortar fell Into tho upper parlor, whero
Mrs. Hudson was seated at a piano, aud
Btruck her on top of the head, causing In

men were in the church when the storm
