As a B'-pubiican and a mm cf very
ordinary m-ntal calibre, CapUin Tliaiss is
objic'ionable to the Democrats of this dis
trict, and every houorsbl eff irt ill !e
made by them to defeat bim with a g.d
Democrat in every way his peer ari l in
many respects his superior. But as a msn
p 9ehing several important qualifications
which his Republican rivals do not possess,
and as the possible future representative
from this district, the Democrats will sup
port him fr the nomination, in preferance
to all bis Itepublican rivals afuresiid.
The only reason why Deniocra's take
any interest at all in the nomination of a
Republican candidate fir congressman is
that there is a possibility of republican suc
cess at the coming November election.
And the only possible reason why Dem
ocrats support Captain Thomas in bis en
deavors to be renominated by bis own
party i 1 that, by reason of bis experience,
position and influ'-nce at Washington, he
would be better able than all his repub
lican rivals to further the rivi:r improve
ment interests of this district in the event
iff his election.
Republicans object to Captain Thomas,
because he has gained for himself the re
spect and limited support of a few reputable
Demo' rats. Captain Thomas gained the
limited support 'if such democrats only be
cause bv expiriciice, position and influence,
ho is better able to advance measures at
Washington which will be of vast good to
the p'-ople of the district. Aro bis ex
perience, iullueiico and position any the less
important as aids in the advancement of the
interests of bis constituents generally, be
cause they have gained for him the good
will of his political opponents?
-In view of the fact that the Demo
crats of this district suffer as much from
overflows and bad navigation as the Re
publicans do, they may bo pardoned for
manifesting some interest in the selection
of the man who may possibly be sen, to
Washington next November, to represent
the district. The improvement of tho riv
eis is not a partis in qu stion, but it is tho
most impoitant of all questions before the
people' of this district. It should out
wi'ili all partisan considerations; it should
annihilate all personal and factional feel
ing. No person or faction has a right to
iitand in the way of the interests of the peo
plu at large; and nowise, unselfish person or
taction would do it.
The strongest nrgumeiit which the
factional Republicans are) using against
Captain Thomas' reiiomiiiation is that bo
used his inlluenco in favor of the appoint
ment of a Democrat to a public ollice at
Washington. Admitting this to bo true,
are wo to understand that by this act he
lost all be gained in four years of service
at Washington? Did that act deprive him
of his position as chairman of tho commit
tee on levees, a position which no inexpe
rienced, uniufluential person cau attain to,
and iu which our representative can do
more than in most any other to advance
our largo river improvement interests? Did
that act deprive him of tho intimate- ac
quaintance with Influential personages, of
his popularity and of his four yearn' expc
rieuce, without which a representative is
almost a noiiunity, ami which not ouo of
, Mr. Thomas' opponents possess?
A meeting of colored voters was held
at the Tenth street stand last night. It
was a Dami'oii meeting, and the judge was
tho principal orator of thoocciision. It was
not a very large mooting but what it lacked
in this respect it made up in enthusiasm.
Judge Damron and Mr. W. T. Scott were
tho speakers, und both seemud to think
tho only opponent they had was
Captain Thomas, for tho burthen of tho ru
marks of both speakers was what Captain
Thomas did do, but should not have done,
and what he did not do, but should havo
done. Another meeting will be held at the
same place to-night, when several more
prominent speakers will bo present, Ike
Clemens among them.
All tne would ho Republican candi
dates for congress, arrived in the city yester
day and proceeded to work with much
energy among the voters iu tho city, after
having sent out several pn sies among those
of the county. Ciptaiu Thomas arrived
yesterday morning and found his interests
well taken care of by sivcral
influential Republicans. Money has
been used against him very
liberally, in face of the fact that it was un
derstood among all the candidates, that no
lucre should bo used in the primaries in
this county. Ono ot Judge Damron 's
strikers who left the city yesterday morning
to wotk in the county, met ono of Captain
Thomas' workers Wednesday, and accused
him of using inoiuy n the interest of the
c ipta u. The captain's worker di tiled
this and ma le a counter charge that his
accuser had received ei-;hty dollars whiih
he ws. to use in the judge's liehalf 111 the
county. Pide I) union's sli iker did not
deny ih-'chuge, and Captain Thomas' mm
continued: "Y'-u fellows think you are
coming it over us in a sly way. You p'oin-i-cl
ti"t t-i use any money Im fore the nomi
nation, but we. caught you in ymir lie tin
tiil break you ma do. You m vy have plen
ty of mom-y, because your candidate ha;
bu, you bet, we have too, and it isn't Cap
tain Thomas' money either. By , if it
comes to the use of money at this stage ot
the came, you'll find that you havn'tgotit
all your own way. We've got the lucre as
wef! as you, au I plenty of it, too." This
gives a sbght insight in t the
character of the fight that
is being waged in this county by the
rival would ij can li-lates for congress on
the Republican ticket, and their respective
linn 'Fridays." This 19 the beginning,
what will the end lie?
The new fire ordinance iuc'.ules
forty blocks, all of them
contiguous and nearly all built up, and
situated in a manner that renders some
kind of supervision over the erection of
new buildings very desirable. In all cities
of any size fire limits are established. Iq
Chicago said limits are almost co extensive
with the city limits, and no frame building
can be erected within the limits without a
permit from the council or a properly con
stituted Imaid. The primary object of es
tablishing fire limits in any city is to place
the erection of frame buildings under
tho control of the city council, or
some board constituted by the council;
and the ultimate objects are to guard
against great conflagrations in the most
substantial portions, against the erection
of miserable, uusightly hovels in the busi
ness portion of the city, und to induce lot
owners to build respectable houses upon
their vacant lots. It requires no argument
to prove that all tlue objects are worthy,
and if followed up discreetly can only affect
a city beneficially. Cairo has several in
stances of the evil effects of entire freedom
in the erection of frame barracks in con
spicuotis places almost contiguous to fine
brick structures. The row of dirty little
dens tin Ohio levee, between Twtl'th and
Fourteenth streets, aro deplorable examples
and are much more injurious
to the good name of the city
than the empty hits would u.
Certainly, they added nothing to the ma
terial wealth of tho city or its citizens when
they were stuck together. Such stiuctures
do not only retard the improvement of the
city, by preventing the erection of respect
able buildings, but they endanger the ad
joining properly, depreciate its vit'uo and
increase the rate of insurance thereon. The
establishment of fire limits in any city n
not to prevent entirely the erection of frame
buildings within such limits, but to bring
the mutter under the control of the council,
or Bouieanthoritywhich w ill guard the best
interests of the city at large in the mutter
of building frame houses. A strict en
forcement of nn ordinance prohibiting the
erection of any fraino buildings in any city
would bo highly injurious to the city, and
is never contemplated, nor is the ordi
nance passed at tho last meeting of the
Cairo council, intended to bo so enforced.
Tho blocks enclosed by it aro all
in the principal business portions
of the city, where tho erection
of shanties should not be allowed. The
vacant lots in the district are comparatively
few, and most of them belong to non
residents who aro not likely to improve
them for some time to comu. But if nny
owner of a vacant lot within tho district
does desire to improve it by erecting a
house anything like respectable, there is no
doubt but that be cau obtain tho consent of
tho council to do so.

"COOKING BY' GAS,"
IMI'OHTANT TO OAS CoSSUMKUS.
Gas for fuel is no longer an experiment,
but for summer use for all culinary pur
poses, it proves itself to be the cleanest,
coolest, cheapest and best.
The Cairo City Gas Company is now of
fering special inducements to purchasers of
Gas Cooking Stoves, in the following way:
To parties that will pay in advance for ten
thousand feet or more of gas, at the rati; of
two dollars and fifty cents per thousand
feet, to be used in cooking, a deduction of
forty percent, will be allowed in or applied
to the payment of gas stove or Btoves, of

J ESSE MAHAFFEV KILLED.
A dispatch from Vicksburg, under date
of the 1 1th instant, says:
A fatal Hhooting affray occurred here to
day between John Ryan and Jesse Mahaf
fey, both of whom were largely engaged in
the lumber business. The dispute which
led to the killing was occasioned by a de
mand of a settlement on the part of Ryan.
Mahalfey closed in on Ryan, and was about
to strike him when the latter drew a pistol
and fired, resulting in the killing of his
antagonist. MahalV-y, although shot
through the forepart of the head, lived for
several hours, but died this evening, nl'ler
great pain and suffering. Ryan was ar
rested and placed in jail In await a prelim
inary trial to-morrow.
Jesse's tragic death will shock his many
friends in this city. Ho was a rough, pow
erful man, and if it is true that he closed
in upon Ryan, it is probable that it meant
life for life. Ho had amassed somo prop
erty iu Vicksburg during bis stay (here.
A TERRIBLE CALAMITY.

Early this morning there was a tremendous

An immense volume of water was suddenly
thrown into Poguo's river, a small crock
circling around and through tho city, and
in a short time tho creek had burst its
banks. Tho north, east und central portions
of tho city were flooded for several squares,
and hundreds of private residences wcro

estimated in excess of f 200,000.
Coupled with the flood was a horrible
accident, resulting in the drowning of ten
or fifteen people and the miraculous e-cape
of a score of others. Near the Union depot
a crowd of men, women and children gath
ered on a narrow platform jutting out over
Pogue's run, where they stood watching the
angry torrent. They were notified of tho
dangerous character of the structure, but
refused to vacate their position. Suddenly
and without warning the platform gave
way, precipitating 20 or 30 people irto the
torrent, at that place 15 feet in depth and
swift as a mill-race. A scene of terror fol lowed.
A few of the bystanders sprang t-1

paralyzed with fear. Forty feet
