The Germans of St. L ju'is are taking
an early stand against tho prohibition
amendment. They hold tho Republican
party responsible for Hie growth of tho
movement, and there seems to be a stampede
from tho party in consequence. Tho St.
Louis 'Republican' of .Tuesday says that
within tho past few days largo numbers of
German citizens have been registering, in
that city, and that on Monday there was a
perfect throng at the office of the recorder
of votes. Those applying KllvU -9 a reasou
that they wanted to take part iu the Demo
cratic primaries, which occur next Saturday.
They expect to votu in future the Democrat
ic ticket, and have no doubt that their votes
will be received at tho polls. Many have
heretofore not registered, though duly natu
ralized. All of these.it said, will inarch up

The work of laying tho narrow gauge
track between thu rails of the Illiuois Cen
tral tracks in the yards here lus not been
interrupted through auy interfersnco by
outside parties, but is entirely voluntary on
the part of the company. Tho reason is
that the company has work elsewhere ou
the liuo which is of greater importance just
now than the laying of this track, and Mr.
Hutchinson who has charge of this part of
the company's business has ordered the
force of men at work here to stop and do
the more important work first. Tho inter
ruption is but temporary and w ill be re
sumed in time to finish the tracks when
needed by the Cairo & Texas narrow gauge.
It is believed that fully three weeks will
pass before tho narrow gauge can transfer
its trains to this city, as the new inclino
which it is necessary to build has becu
barely commenced. However, the first
train on that road left Bird's Point yester
day morning. It was a mixed train, com
prising freight, passenger and pay cars.
Dispatches were sent from here to va
rious papers some days ago to the effect
that the city couucil had directed that thirty
days uotice be given to the Wabash, St. Louis
and Pacific railroad company to rennve its
tracks from Commercial aveuue. This is a
mistake. No such resolution was passed
by tho council and no such action taken.
At the last meeting of tho council Alderman
Patier introduced, and the council adopted,
a resolution directing the street committee
to notify the railioa 1 company aforesaid
that its tracks on Commercial avenu'j were,
in many places, in a condition contrary to
certain sections of the city ordinances which
were named in the resolution, and requiring
that the company take steps to comply with
the sections of ordinances named. All that
Is sanght is a compliance with tho ordi
nances of the city and it this bo accom
plished, if the tracks of tho company are al
ways maintained in a condition not to inter
fere with traffic on the streets, and kept
clear of freight cars, then the opposition of
tho property ownors aud business men ou
tho avenue will bo abated.
So lar Williamson, I'niou and Jackun
counties have hold Democratic conventions
to select delegates to the congressional con

thu three which has been instructed. Those
of Jackson and 1'nion, eli.ven each, are not
instructed for any one. Tho Williamson
county delegation is instructed for Wash

Some time ago '.ho merchants ot Pa
ducah arranged for a free excursion of their
merchant customers along the line of one
of the important railroads leading into the
city, and succeeded in drawing over one
thousand strangers to their city, whom
they entertained in splendid style. Thu
object was to cultiva'to nil acquaintance
with tho retail merchants along the road
and to establish commercial relations with
them. At that time Tine Hi i.lf.tin siig
gested that the merchants of Padticnh had
s.it a good example to those of Cairo and
hop'id that steps would bo taken to follow
it. Its hopes are about to bo realized, for
already negotiations are pending with a
view to having an excursion of this kind
of tho merchants living ou (lie now Cairo
and Texas narrow gauge railroad between
Joueshoro, Ark , nnd Bird's Point. The
Bchcnin suggest itself favorably to every
business niMi of even ordinary shrewdnoHi,
and since tho Cairo board o trado com
posed ot the principal merchants in thu
city, has taken hold of it, thero Is a strong
reason to believe that the excursion will be
a near nnd a grand reality. Tho Bchome
must not bo allowed to fall through; every
merchant in tho city will a bunollciary If
the excursion proves successful, thoroforu
every merchant should Interest himself in it
and contribute his shatu Inwards its success.
Wu are glad to know that thu citizens
of Cairo have awakened to th0 conscious
ness that something must bo doue toward
speedy relief lor the Lorretto Sisters ere the
scholastic year rolls around again. The
couvuut building in its present condition is
entirely unfit for the reception of boarding
patrons. The unplastered walls are un
sightly and uninviting. Bed and bedding
must be purchased, in fact all tho necessary
adjuncts of a first-class educational institu
tion, must be obtained ere they will bo
placed in a condition to consistoutly ac
cept that legitimate patronage, which is
ready to divert toward them had they suit
able accommodations. They feel keenly
the necessity of being forced to aypeal to
charity for the relief of thoir wants.
But it is their only resource. To lot what
they Invo accomplished iu the way of re
covering their losses go by default, they aro
unwilling, while thero is a possibility of
consummating what they havo begun.
Placed upon a solid basis once more, they
feel that tha revenue for tuition will sup
port them in comfort; and also enable them
to still further improve their facilities or
tinio lapse. Their object is to givo their
institution a name in tho state; to prac
tically prove to the Catholic and Protestant
world that they aro what their vocation
marks them Christian instructors. No
pupil's religion is tampered; with a fact
that ran bo confirmed by the many Pro
testant young l.id'es who havo been edu
cated uuder their roof. Once more we call
upon Cairo's citizens to holp them iu this,
their last appeal.

OUR HARMONIOUS FRIENDS.
It is painful to us to harrow up the feel
ings of our Republican readers; but a due
regard for our duty as careful chrouiclers
of passiuging events leads us to present,
from time to time, suc'i evidence as we may
find, of the uuharnioniousness of the Re
publican party in some parts of the district.
- The Carbondalo Free Press, in its last
Issue, has the following:
"We aro free to Bay that we do not con
sider the nomination mado by tho crazy
mob at Cairo binding on anybody. Where
a nomination is purchased; where a nom
ination is brought about by a combined
outside pressure of Democrats and bull
dozing Republicans; where a nomination
is secured by a resort to tho foulest fraud
and basest of trickery, that nomination
may bo disregarded by honest men."
A published letter from a prominent Re
publican of Johuson county the coutaius
"The lion John R. Thomas is the nom
inee. How did hu become so? That is the
question. We fearlesMy answer that his
nomination was obtained by th blackest
fraud, trickery and corruption; and that lie
is not the choice of thu people, but of a
ring of federal officeholders who, with their
puppets and corrupting powers, accom
plished this result."
"Can sticn cussoilness wine Shall we
submit silently for tho sake of harmony tc
such an infernal outrages? If Gun John
A. Logan is wise, and has tho good of tho
party iu this district at heart, ho will im
mediately proceed to decapitate a few post
masters and one internal revenue collector.
Wo venture tho prediction that Captain
Thomas will lose at least three hundred
votes iu this county on account of the
manner in which ho was nominated."
BARTON "JUST WANTS TO KNOW,
"The Cairo convention mot on tho 13th
Instant. On tho evening previous, when
tho town was full of delegates and politi
cians, a circular appeared and was promis
cuously distributed through the crowd
This circular was signed by a largo number
of persons who claimed themselves to be
resident Republicans. Among tho number
wero: John Wood, 0. R. Woodward, Chas.
GaUighor, N. B.Thistlowood, II. II. Candce
Wood Rittenhouso and Davil J. Baker.
Thoso gontlomon wo recognlzod to be
among the leading men of Cairo and Re
publicans without spot or blemish. The
circular to which their names were attached
contained what they aro pleased to call
"facts." Now wo want some enlightment
on these "Jitefs," hikI in order to secure that
light we write and submit this aiticlo to
them with the earnest appeal to answer
through our columns a few plain questions.
We quote from the circular, under the
heading of "FACTS," the foil .wing:
"It was through the o (Tor ts of Captain
Thomas that an appropriation was secured
from congress that we may have southern
Illinois protected from overflow."
"Captain Thomas has secured an appro
priation for tho building of a marine hos
pital at Cairo."
Now, then, a to the first: Wheu was
that appropriation secured? How did
Capt. Thomas secure it? How was it ap
plied? Was southern Illiuois secured from
As to the second: Whet did Captain
Thomas secure the appropriation for build
ing a marine hospital? From whom was
tho appropriation si cured? How was it
applied? Has tha hospital Jjeen erected?
We put these questi jns iu good faith to
the above named gentlemen. The questions
are simple an I plain. We shall patiently
await tho ans.v -rs. We ask th'-m to be
fairly and fully answered, that tho Free
Press may be fully cajiable to repeal auy
attacks by Ih i Democratic papers ou Mr.
"The gentlemen named wero active
led hot -supjioitt-rs of Mr. Thomas at
C'aiio. We say to them that on account of
more facts,' published iu that sainu circular
they have cooled the ardor of many a
working R.-publican; and that Mr. Thomas'
late majority may be fuHy sustained, and
his every action fully vindicated, it will bo
necessary that they step to tho front and
do active work iu his behalf. Our artillery
is at their service, and earnestly ak them
to use it."
The Bulletin joins the Free press in
asking, "When were these nppiopriaiions
secured? How were they ai-nlied? Has
thu hospital been built?" etc. If Captain
Thomas has succeeded in doing ai y of
these things he should have credit for it,
and Tub Bulletin will not withhold it; if
he shall do auy of these tilings iu the fut
ure, The Bulletin will also see that due
credit is given him. As yet Capt. Thomas
has secured no appropriation; Southern II
linois (except Cairo which built her own
levees) was not secured from an overflow;
there has been no appropriation for build
ing a marine hospital here, although it is a
very important point forsuch an institution
treating more marine patients iu six
months than are treated in a year in Cin
cinnati, for w hich city an appropriation of
fifty thousand dollars for a marine hospital
is appended to tin- river and harbor bill
now pen ling iu congress.
THE FIRST NOTE.
THE YOUNG DEMOCRATS OF CAIRO
SOUND THE FIRST BUGLE
BLAST OF THE CAMPAIGN
FOR DEMOCRATIC SUC
CESS IN THE TWEN
TRICT. V LA 110 F. MEKTINli MUCIt ENTHUSIASM
I'EllKECT II AUMONY.
Nearly two hundred young Democrats of
this city, aud as many others, gathered at
tho court house last night to take the first
step in party organization for the campaign
that is uow soon to open. Tho primary
object was to arouse thu young Democracy
of the city to active interest in tho ap
proaching campaign and to assume tho po
litical responsibilities of citizenship to
which they arc entitled.
The meeting was called tto order about
8:30 o'clock. Mr. Angus Leek was called
to the chair, and Mr. E. P. Powell was
elected temporary secretary.
Messrs. D.J. Foley, G. W. Hendricks, and
W. C. Mulkey wero appointed a committee
ou resolutions, and they reported as follows:
Whereas, It is the belief of tho younger
members ot tho Democratic party iu this
county that, iu pursuunco of the decrees of
Divine Providence and the natural course
of events, they will bu called upon sooner
or later to stand iu the ranks and take tho
places of those older members and gallant
leaders who have so long Bhed luster upon
the party and its cuuso; and,
Whereas, It is their further belief that
iu order to successfully accomplish tbo de
signs, aims aud mission of thu party in this
district thorough organization is absolute
ly necessary, they do hereby form them
selves into au organization or club, and
adopt the following resolutions as the basis
id tneir future action, to-w it :
1st. This organization shall hereafter be
known as the "Young Men s Democratic
Club of Cairo, Illinois."
2d. That wu, ua such club, hereby renew
our faith iu and pledge our undivided and
hearty support to the principles of tho old
3rd. That this organization was not
designed, nor Is it iuteuded to secure, or
further tho interests, or claims of any ono
of the prospective candidates now aspiring
to official position.
4th. That, in thcsolcetioti of candidates
for oflice, wo hereby pledge ourselves to
use our utmost endeavors, collectively and
individually, to secure the nomination and
election of such persons only as possess, as
nearly its possible, the qualifications of
honesty, Integrity, industry and ability.
Oth. Lastly, believing that wo havo not,
heretofore, received that recognition in the
Democratic conventions to which we think
our votes and influence entitle us, wo
therefore respectfully ask and, of right,
demand, a fair representation in all con
ventions, upon all committees and in all
proceedings in which thu party is interested.
Oth. That no person bo admitted as a
member of this organization, who is over
tho age of 35 years.
W. C. MULKKV,
Geo. W. Hendhicks,
Com. ou Resolutions.
Tho resolutions wero discussed at some
taught by Mr. Mulkey and others, and wero
finally unanimously adopted.
Upon motion the tcmperary organization
was made permanent and Mr Guy Morso
was elected treasurer.
A resolution was presented by Mr. Georgo
W. Hendricks declaring it to be the sense
of the meeting that th congressional dele
gation from this county, to
bo selected to-morrow, should not
bo instructed for auy other than a "homo
The resolution excited considerable dis
cussion. But. all that was said betokened
a Ft rung desire on tho part of all to avoid
anything which might cause disseiition in
the Democratic ranks. Tho resolution was
amen led so as to strike out tho provision,
"except a home man," and was thus car
riud. A motion to appoint a committee of three
to select a. committee of two from each
ward to solicit members for the club, and
another constituting each member present
a committee of one w ith instructions to at
tend aud take an active part in the county
convention to morrow were paseT.
Another motion to allow several prom
inent gentlemen present to address the club
was voted down, becauso the club was not
organized in the interest of any candidate
could not, as a club, consistently
listen to any candidate's argument
in his favor. Upon motion the
club then adjourned to inert agaiu at tl.e
call of the chairman.
After the meeting Hon. John W. Burton,
candidate for the vacant appellate clerk
ship in this district, and Hon. F. E, Al
bright, candidate for congress from this
district, addressed the assemblage very in
terestingly, each in his own behalf.
