THE C. D. HESS' OPERA COMBINA
TION. A beautiful, roomy well-arranged Opera
House, under competent management,
backed up by one of tho best hotels in tho
country, lias rendered it possible for tho
peoplo of Cairo to enjoy tho production of
such operatic and theatrical talent, as
in former years, way attainable only by in
sisting the larger city of tho west, nnd to
this fact ire we indebted for tho splendid
treat loitoro for us to-morrow night, in the
presentation of the "Bohemian Girl"
by the colebmted .0. D. Hess' Acmo
Operatic combination as this tine troupe
consists of sixty choristers and musicians
it can be easily understood that tho daily
expenditures must bo very lurgf, aggrega
ting 301) dollars per day, 'the hotel bills
alode amount ng to about fl.'JO per day.
Taking this into consideration "it requir
ed extra inducements on the part of Capt.
Shields to persuade the management of
the company to place them in Cairo for
even one night only, and that his efforts
arn thoroughly appreciated is shown by
tho condition of tip) box slioct,
which developed hut night n,
very gratifying scarcity, in any put of
house, of gija'i on mtle. Luckily
tho arrangement of the Opera
House with reference to tho
location of seats is such that all are good
and from any part of tho house a irood
.view of the stage is obtained.
The acoustic qualities of the house being
perfect, those who arrivo late and fird only
backseats at their command, will probably
be better pleased than if they were farther
It may be stid of Mr. Hess' compauy
that it is the only one in this country or
ganized to successfully present both gnind
and comic opera. There aro comic opera
companies ad nauseam, and there are light
opera companies, a few, but the Hens com
pany can an 1 does present both classi's,
nnd presents, them in a very superior nian
nrr. It has txcellent singers, who can also
act. It has artists of peculiar qualifications
for the respective roles assigned them. It
has a large and woll balanced chorm, and
last, but not least, the representations are
all properly costumed.

CAIRO'S WALL OF EARTH.
The new levee, the city's own levee, upon
which, for several monflis past, a large
force of men and teams with scrapers and
wagons huve been at work under Street
Commissioner Raird, is now about finished.
It is a fine embankment one of the finest
on the Mississippi river and citizens of
Cairo ought to feel proud of it.
It is nearly a milo in length, or just
9,120 feet, ouly 160 feet less than a mile. It
is twelve feet wide at the top; and, on an
average, about one hundred feet wide at
the base. Its top is fifty-four feet above
low -a l er mark ; its outer slope has a fall
of one foot in five; its inner slope, one foot
in two and a half. Its stupes are as smooth
and regular as though they had been care
fully rolled and the whole is almost as sol
id as the ii'itural earth. The origiual cost
of this emlmnkment can only be approxi
mately estimated, and will not fall
short of twenty-five thousand dollars.
Tho work done within tho lust few months
in which from thirty to sixiy-five teams
and the requisite number of inrn and
scrapers ami wagons wero employed almost
steadily for two months, Ims cost the city
just about 10,475. Tho work done in
1882, that memorable spring, can only bo
approximated; but it is sate to sny that
the total cost of tho city's levee will not
falUhort of forty thousand dollars, and
that mentis only the embankment; for tho
ground upon which it is built, as all here
know, was douated to the city as a street
by Col. Taylor for the Trust Properly
The incidents attending tho construction
of this embankment are, and will ever be,
of startling interest to tho citizens of Cairo
who witnessed them. How it was built
originally in 187.1) under the presmuo of
threatened danger and amid great con
tusion caused by fear;how it was put, to its
first severe test in February of 1881, and
how it was maintained then by many brave
men against the power which brought
desolation to many of our sister cities
the remembrance of these things, and the
strongest interest in all their fearful details,
will bo co-extensive with the lives of those
who wero resident Ctiiroites when tho in-
cidents occurred, a id will bo transmitted
to generations after. Bui thoso who fought
the danger of 1881; who stood upon the
ombnukmot ngaiust and over which the
wind-lashed, foaming water dashed in
great wave, dreuching them to the waists
and causing tho ground to crumble away
from under their foot; but who, unmindful
of all this, with shovels in their hnmls and
dirt-sacks mi their backs, fought the
elements through several wild,
black nights, during which
the danger reigned those men, men of
every station, tho wealthy aud tho poor,
tho intellectual and the otherwise, physic
eiiil giants and physical pigmies, frieuds
aud enemies, but, for the time boiuir, all
friends and all equals, - those men will
always look upon this noble embaukmont
witb especial pride, fur they lurniahcd tho
muscle and thu courngn to maintaiu it
against tho most fearful and poworiul de
stroyer by which this country is threaten
ed; they aro tho heroes of a bsrd-faught
battle in whiob this dostroyor met witb
moat inglorious defeat.
In this connection, (which may bo the
last time nny extended reference to this
mibject will lm nmdo in theso columns) it
may not bo out of place to record the
noble pirt taken in this fight by som j of
our monied citizens, morn especially
since iu former aecounte tho octoin
of these gentlemen was al
most entirely ovi'r looked. Mus
cle and courage and judgement were
necessary to do tho work cfleetively, aud
much of these was supplied voluntarily;
but when the volumary Mipply whs exhaus
ted or proved insufliciont, which it did
at a timo when thu danger was
still at its bight, thmi greenbacks
wero n joded to purch iso a fresh supply
of these necessary qualities-and right
there is where tho noble work of thrsi
citizons came in. At a time when most
men of large interests hero would natural
ly bo panic-stricken and bugg
cUsely every dollsr they hail or could
command, and when thu army of idlers iu
tho city who would have had nothing to
lose but much to gain iu the way of
spoils if the worst h id happened, when
these refused to take tho places of the ex
hausted volunteers without the daily pay
moot of stipulated wages, an 1 when city
securities were almost valueless it was
then these citizens stepped for
ward and every morning issued to
tho small army of unwilling laborers
tho money due them" for their
previous day's work. Many thousand
dollars were p:ii I out in this way by these
min then, au I all the security they had
or could h ivo had w n the pmniMi t -p:ty at
sooi e time in the distant futuiv, of a city
which, for all tint could then be known,
might have no future at all. Such a dis
play of coulidetice under such circumstan
ces indicated a courage which it seems to
uj drflorves soiuD mention when reference
is imde to the kveu and those who main
laiuud it! Hat this is not all. The work
just concluded, by which the k vet h is been
finished, was a necessity, in order to create
eutire confidence in the public mind in the
ability of the levbu to withstand any prob
able flood of next spring. The work was
begun and finished at the end ot a fiscal
ye ir when the funds in the city treasury are
usually low, nn I it was piid for witb "an
ticipation warrants," that N, warrants
drawu upon the city treasurer, and to be
paid by him out of moneys placed ir. his
hands for tho purpose when next year's
taxes shall huve been collected, which
will bo in May. This woik
had to be done, money or no money, and
these w.ii rauts wen: the only substitute for
money which the city could provide. They
will not be paid by tho city until May and
the receivers of tliem, those who did the
work, would have to hold thuui un
til that time, unless some one cashed them
before then. They Hre securities of tho
city for the lime being and are as good as
money to those whocau afford to hold iheui
until pavleV. Hut, ns a rule, men who
labor lui ,oo c.l aro not such ns can give
their labor on eight or ten mouth's time,
evou at a premium of eight per cent, per
annum for every dollar's worth; aud there
fore, unless there had been some prospect
that the money would beadvauccd upon these
warrants by some person or persons who
liBd confidence in the city's honor and abili
ty to meet is obligations, ami who would
be willing to botrioid it in time of need, it
is likely that tho city would havo mot
with some serious obstacles in the way of
its late levee improvement scheme. This
time a number of good citizens again
stepped forward and advanced the cash
nu these warrants to the laborers who held
them, and will hold them until they fall
due and the city shall have provided tor
them. Tims thoso men of mentis again as
aisled the city in its struggle to recover
from the several hard blows it has received
during tho last few years, which action,
when C'impaicd to the uctiou of some others,
aud in view of the fact that they al
ready held tho city's securities on accouut
of tho flood of '82, to the amount probably
of bet ween eight uud ten thousand dollars,
certainly deserving of fav
orable mention. We consider that,
in stating these few facts, we are
simply doing tardy justice to some who
wero prominent in tho city's . struggle for
existence and prosperity, and wo feel that
tho people of Cairo will feel likuwitso.
