The rear portion of the must and tobacco

to be on (ire shortly after four o'clock yes
terday morning, and before the fire depart
ment could chock the flumes the waro house
aforesaid ami all its contents, also the next
building and all its contents wore almost
entirely destroyed and the third building
was badly damaged.
The alarm was promptly given not only by
the'several flro holla, but by a number of
water craft belonging in tho harbor. Al
though all the firemen in tho city had
been up lato tho night before, engagtid in
conducting tho Foiuth of July celebration,
every company was promptly on hand and
work was energetic and effective from tho
beginning to tho end. The transfer stemu
er II. S. McComb, Captain McKiuney,
Messrs. Haltiday's tug Montauk and tho
ferryboat Tliroo States, Captain John S.
Hacker, wore all also on hand soon after
the first alarm had been given and rendered
assistance. Tho Arab flro company's
steamer "Jack Winter" did some of (ho
best work ou tho ground, throwing two
heavy streams without interruption and
with great effect. Bui for such energetic,
well-directed work, superintended by
Mayor Thistlowood and Assistant Firo
Marshal Sloagala, there would have been
a much inoro destructiro conflagration than
But tho work of tho flames was serious
enough. The ware house in which it broke
out was one story, and seventy five by one
hundred feet in dimensions. It was owned
by Mr. Peter Neff and was comparatively
new. It was occupied by Messrs. Hinkle,
Moore & Hinkle as a packing and tobacco
ware house, and by Messrs. J. E. Hender
son & Co., as a grocery. Each firm carried
a heavy stock all of which was destroyed,
the former's lo.ss being about fifteen thou
sand and the hitter's about five thousand
iollars. Mr. Nell's loss on the building
was three thousand five hundred dollars.
The insurance upon Messrs. Henderson &

Unexpected Success Generally.
Cairo's celebration of the 100th anniver
sary of thu birth of the Union was equal
if not superior in every respect to that of
any community approximate in size. It
was a celebration of tho people of tho city,
irrespective of color or condition, and of
thousands of strangers brought here from
every town and village for many miles
around us. by river and by rail. Citizens
had decorated their business houses and
residences profusely with Hags and bunt
ings and green foliage, and but very few of
the former were open to the public. The
air was tilled all the day with a confusion
of noises by tho clatter of hacks and cries
of drivers, the pop of small flro works and
the joyous cries of boys and girls; and clear
abovu these could bo hoard tho inusicu
clink of glasses and the laughter and toasts
of jolly men in the public houses, as they
joined in the general enthusiasm. It in a
uolablo fact that, though there were in tho
city thousands of people of every condition
and from different communities -ull im
bucd by the auspicious occasion with an
unusual feeling of personal liberty and a
craving for fun, and all bent upon satisfy
ing that craving fully it is a remarkable
fact that there was not a single case of dis
orderly conduct anywhere in tho city, and
but two or three mild, plain cases of intox
ication. This fact certainly speaks well for
the people generally uud thu city olliccrs
It is estimated from data obtained from
thu different transportation companies
whoso lines lead into to city, that not less
than five thousand strangers were in tho
city. A train load camo lu on each of tho
railroads: Tho Iron Mountain, the Illinois
Central, tho St. Louis and Cairo, tho Wa
bash, the Mississippi Central and the Mo
bile and Ohio, Besides these tho ferryboat
Three States brought over crowds at every
trip; die Gus Fowler mado two trips be
tween hero and Paducah, and brought a
good load of passengers from the river
towns each trip; tho little packets Octavia
and A. B. Safford each brought little parties
from Paducah and Mound City. Several
organizations from other cities were
hero in full and in part, to participate in
the procession. Among these wore tho
Knights of Pythias, of Charleston, in uui
foi m, about thirty strong, who made a
splendid appearuuee and were much ad
mired. They wero a fiuo looking sot of
men and wero evidently woll drilled. Tho
prtbcuco of this largo number of struugers
was a genuine surprise to the managers of
the celebration, who, owing to tho bad
weather of the two days before, expected to
bo very much disappotutod. It was also
proof that, even under tho most discour
aging circumstances, Cairo, by moans of
her many railroad and river connections,
can easily draw a largo audience from the
surrounding towtis and villages.
Tho programme prepared by tho joint
arrangement committee was ouo of extra
ordinary attractiveness. The experience of
former years was utilized aud tho minds
and purso of the committee wero taxed to
tho extent of their capacity to perfect tho
extensive preparations, and tho accomplish
ment of tho committee's plans, and the
mauuer thereof, proved how able was tho
management from the beginning to the end.
Tho procession was first on tho pro-
gramme. It was iornieo aoout eieveu
o'clock, at the Tenth street square, with
head down Eighth street toward Ohio leveo
in the following order: First, Cairo's fa
mous Comique band, Al Goss leader, in ele
grant uniforms; second, the Halliday
Guards in their handsome uniform; th.rd,
the Knights of Pythias, of Charleston, ulao
beautifully uniformed; fourth, the tourna
ment riders, decorated with bright colored
sashes; fifth, Hickman comet band; sixth,
Cairo Knights of tho Mystic Krew of Coiuiii,
uniformed; seventh, Arab fire company;
eighth, Rough and Ready fire company;
nineth, Hibernian firo company; tenth,
Delta cornet baud; eleventh, Delta firo com
pany ; twelfth, Anchor fire company. Each
die company was followed by its ngines
and other firo apparatus, drawn by horses,
all handsomely decorated with fligs, rib-
Uus aud evergreens. To tho music of the
three bands, aud uuder the guidance ot i
Captain T. W. Shields and Messrs. I). W. !
Lippitt and Geo. E. O'Hara as marshals,
the procession moved through the streets
of tho city to St. Mary's park under flying
colors and followed by great crowds of peo
ple of all ages. It was certainly a splendid
pageant and will live for years in tho mem
ories of those who witnessed it.
St. Mary's park had been provided with
various arrangements for the accommoda
tion of those who might visit it, and it had
undergone great improvement at the hands
of the committee. Tho lawns were evenly
cut, the driving track scraped and filled
where necessary; stands wero erected at
which refreshments ami food of a delicate
and substantial character wero sold to the
thirsty and hungry; a large tent, about one
hundred and tweuty five feet in diameter,
was erected over a dancing floor nearly
equal in dimensions, upou which many
chairs and benches were placed for tho
spectators and weary (lancers. The largest
and, perhaps, tho best patronized, certainly
the best attended stand was that of the
lailies of tho Episcopal church, whore
lunches composed of boiled chicken, boiled
eggs, ham, sandwiches, pickles, cuke mid
biscuits, all lacked in neat paper boxes,
also hot coffee, were dealt out by a large
force of handsome young ladies, who wore
kept busy from morning till nearly mid
night. The other stands wore all in charge
of competent gentlouicn who understood
their business, furnished honest goods and
au honest manner, and treated tho crowds
which wero continually gathered around
them "with neatness and dispatch."
Soon after twelve o'clock Miss. Jennie
Wright read tho Declaration of Independ
ence in a clear, linn voice, and displayed
lowers of elocution not possessed by
The oration of Rector F. P. Davenport
which camo immediately after was
an important feature of tho occasion. It
was a brilliant introduction to thu festivities
upon which those present wero about to
enter, a grand eulogy of the auspicious oc
casion. It was not long, but just long
enough; it was rich with patriotism elo
quently expressed ; it was delivered in a
masterly manner and wsb received by the
great audience with enthusiastic applause.
After the oration tho people scattered
all over tho park. Tho dancing floor was
tho attraction for uinny; tho refreshment
stands for many more, while others at
tended the salo of pools for the races
which was to ho the next important attrac
tion. In tho meantime, in an enclosure of
ropes, some very ludicrous and amusing
coutesls, such as sack ruceB, wheelbarrow
races and butter milk throwing, took
place und gave tho ninny who crowded
around tho ring a long, hearty laugh.
Racing began about 3 o'clock, lion. T

C. W. Henderson were chosen judges. The
horses which wero to take part wcro mos

The tournament came next and was
equal in every way to tho races in the inter
est manifested. Messrs. Vaughn, Cook,
Roughen and Harrison were contest an 's for
prizes of $2.50, $5.00 and $10.0'). Some
very line ridding was done by all, but Mr.
Vaughn proved to be tho most skillful
handler of the lance. The result of the
contest was Vaughn, 9 rings; Cook, 8;
Roughen, o; Harrison, 3. In the second
dash, Mr. Harrison was stuick under the
left eye by a ring which be had missed
hut knocked from iU fattening, which dis
abled him and was probably tho cause of
his ill success. The tournament chmed tho
exeicises for the time being, but tho danc
ing floor and the refreshment stands wero
very liberally patronized.
About y 6Vlock at night, when the
crowds had again gathered f rom all parts of
the city to which they had wandered, the
pyrotechnriil programme was began, and
the park and sky were kept ablaze for over
an hour with rock'-ts, Hunan candles, with
sparks and balls of fire of varied and beau
tiful colors, shot from artistically contrived
pieces. Among thu fineol wero the "star of
tho west," "July -1, ""Garfield illuminated,"
"Saturn und ring," and the "Thunder
wheel." After the illumination the danc
ing floor was the chief attraction and
remained so for the remainder of the night.
But while tho park was the principal
cainpjng ground for the great throng of
people, other places in the city where at
tractions were offered, were also visited by
many. Thu ladies of the W. C. T. U.
oll'.ired au elegant dinuer nt the Eighth
street Reform hall, which was well patron
ized, principally by citizens, and yesterday
it was thought that a handsome sum was
realized. Tho Indies of the Methodist
church also had a good attendance upon
tho'r dinner and supper at the old Reform
hall. Mr. Harry Walker's Theatre Comique
was crowded almost to suffocation, both
afternoon and night. Every seat, down
stairs and in the galleries, w is taken and
standing room did not go begging.
Altogether it was one of the finest cele
brations Cairo has had, though it was not
as largely attended as it would havo been,
but for tho bad weather the few days bofore
