The election of to-day will give character
to the city government for the next two
years. The mayor, five aldermen, a
city treasurer, and city clerk are to be
chosen, and there is a good nun in the fkdd
for each office. It is important that good
men shall be placed in all these positions,
but it is most important that the first
named office shall be held by a superior
No direct issue ia made in this tleetimi,
of any important question of public policy;
but the general good ol the city is at stake
and several very weighty matters that have
been pending for some time still await ad
justment, and the interests of the communi
ty at large demabd that, with reference to
them, there shall be no change of policy
on the part of the city government, so that
the verdict pronounced by the voters of
Cairo, at the election of a year ago. may
be fully carried into tffoct.
As a rule, the tnnyorof a city ives char
acters to its govcrnmont, and if he is not
ninny, direction, al.v, either lor better or
for worse. Hence, in order that the gov
ernment of Cairo miy bo one reflecting
credit upon the people and directed by
wisdom always in the channel of the great
est good for the greatest number, it is
necessary that it shall be characterized by
good judgrueiit, deliberation, economy,
energy, progress, tact; it is necessary that
Cairo's executive ntEct-r shall bo a msn of
executive ability, an honest, sober, intelli
gent man; a man of enough brain power to
think for bimselt and conclude for himself;
a man of good judgment, not a rash fool; a
progressive man of broad views, who can be
guided in every act by the interests of the
city at large, both present and future, not
one ideaed municipal Rip-Van-Winkle,
the victim of narrow, factional and indi
vidual prejudices; we want a man of Btable
character, reliable and respectable, not a
political demagogue, whose word is chuff,
whose every act will be dictated by 1 1 is own
pocuninary interests or those of a stubborn,
misguided few, and whose leading charac
teristics are, an ability to accommodate
himself to all shades of public opinion on
short notice and an undying tinkering after
office. We want a man who combines alt
the good qualities mentioned and many
others, and such a man h to-day before the
public in the person of Mr. Thomas W. Hal-
The Argus is doggedly silent about
the-election didn't have a word to Hiy
about any of the candidates yesterday, ex
cept what was paid for. The Argus has t
very bid case of weak back and we bu
Rest a "Poor man's" plaBter as a means of
relief. Tub Bouktin naked it to tell its
readers aud the public whether it favored
Mr. Halliday as candidate for mayor at to
day's election, and instead of answering
thu very civil question as it merited, the
Argus snapped at us like a mad dog and
refused to answer at all intelligently. The
Bulletin asked it again and this time its
request is contemptuously ignored. All
right, you unamlable little dodger; try as
much as you will to hide your deplorable
lack o moral courago in stubborn silence,
the public will yet penetrate your guize.
Probably it IB none of our business what
tho Argus thinks about Mr. Ilalliilay as
mayor; and, come to think of it seriously
now, perhaps we shouldn't have asked tho
question. But we did think it was the
publifs business- -a little aud for ourself,
weonly just wanted to lrnow,you kuow. Wo
thought that tho readers of the Argus aud
the public might be Just the least bit curi
ous to know what the Argua thought of so
important a matter as the mayoralty ol the
city reel just ashadow ot interest a-id its
opinion perhaps even have some respect
for such opinion and feel inclined to be
guided by it to a very small extent. But
now, after sober second thought, wo confess
the utter foolishness of the idea. The Ar
gus itsolf vory evidently believes that Itt
readers and the public don't care a conti
nentaldam for its opinion on matters of
groat public importance and have no busi
ness to care, aud, of count, the Argus

There must not bo too much confi
dence on the part of Mr. Halliday 'a friends
over-confidence may lead to a defeat.
Mr. Holiday's opponents have been bard
at work for weeks and they will leave noth
ing undoue to-day to defeat him. Work
is necessary and work must be done from
early this morning till late to-night.
Mr. Halliday and the good of the city
nre in the hands of their friends to-day, but
a strong effort will he made to wrench
tlu'io awAy and bring them to defeat and
ruin. Every trieud must appoint himself
a committee of one and make the city's in
terests and Mr. Halliday's election the
burthen of his thoughts and actions lo-d ty.
An effort was made yesterday to in
duce Hon. D.T. Linegar to become a candi
date for Alderman io the Second ward, and
it was industriously reported about that he
had consented to run; but he bad not, and
his card elsewhere in this issue, denying
that he is a cmdinite, will set all doubt io
the matter at rest.
It is true that Mr. Halliday can not
boast of being impecunious, made so by his
own bad management of his onc prosper
ous business affairs, nor can he lay cUim
to being a chronic office seeker, but be has
various other important qualifications for
the mayoralty, which will amply make up
for these deficiencies.
County court convened at tho court
house yesterday and was in session the
greater part of the day. it waa the regular
probate term, and the court disposed of
considerable business in that line; but it
also sentenced Phillip Sherman, who pleaded
guilty to having stoln a plank, to forty
eight hours in the county jail, bo having
already lain in jail several months.
The Wabash Saturday made remittan
ce Hggrt'gatinj $35,000 to the sheriffs of
counties through which the road passes in
Indiana. Remittances of like character
amounting to $15,000 were forwarded only
a fuws ago before, making a total of $50,
000, which this road ptyj to the state of
Indiana on the tax-levy of 1882. These
payments are all in advance of maturity.
Messrs. Steagala and Walker, candi
dates for aldermen in the First ward, drew
straws yesterday, after agreeing that the
one who got the shortest should withdraw
from the race in favor, of the other and the
result was against Mr. Steagala who drew
the shortest straw and accordingly gives
way to Mr. Walker cheerfully. As Cap
tain Wilson has also withdrawn from the
race, Mr. Walker has tho field entirely to
Hon. D. T. Linegar left last night for
Springfield again. His presence there is
important, as the House is again In a dead
lock over an attempted outrage by the Re
publicans, in the Bradwell-McNally con-
tout case, Mr. Linegar made an able speech
with reference to this matter before the
Democrats in opon caucus, which was very
favorably commented upon by the Spring
field pres and which we may publish soon
in lull, as it sets forth important facts con
cerning the matter at issue, which tbo peo
ple of the state ought to know.
lloracn Hannon is in the field for
alderman from the Second ward and propo
ses to stay. Mr. Hannon has proved him
self a good business man, showing that ho
is of the stuff that makes a good alderman.
Ho is a property owner and therefore
the interest of tho city and his own interest
identified. If he is elected the people of
tho Second ward will find they have a re
prcsentativo who will watch their interest
carefully as well as one that will be zealous
and temperate in all matters pertaining to
the city government.

paper is content to leave the matter where
An important f atur j at the apron so
ciable to be given at the residence of Mr.
Georgo Parsons, by the ladies of the Epis
copal church, uext Thursday night, will be
Chicago ice cream and other feaionable

The city's government is safe in the
hands of those who stood by her in time of
great peril and who have placed her in a
fair way to bu threatenod so no more. It
is also desirable that, in case of future thu
g rs, similar to thoae which have threaten
e I us during the last few years and from
the consequences of which wo are n v ao
l.appily emerging, thereshould bo no an ag
ouimi between those whose otflelal riii'v it
may be to act and thoso to whoso voluntary
action the city owes largely its fmnier nar

in a great measure in caso of future danger.
