So if a large stock is of any advantage to you to select

Yesterday's election was one of the
most orderly ever held in the city. A heavy
vote was polled in nearly all the wards,
though it lacked some of being the tull
voting strenth as indicated by the vote
cast for congressman last Novembfr. The
colored people were out in their usual
forces and it is from tbes that Mr. Winter
received his principal votes. Many white
people, trienda of Mr. Halliday, under a
ban of laziness, were not out at all, think
ing his election assure 1 without their aid.
IId all come out as they should havednic,
Mr. Halliday's majority would have reached
five hundred; but as it is, his mijonty
is extraordinary, not approached by even
his strongest predecessors.
Mr. Holiday's election is a triumph,
not only for himself personally, but
for the policy of the ci'y government,
in so far as it has beea quided by his super
ior judgment; it is a flattering eoJiirs;mont
by the people, of Mr. fl-illidsy's view and
actions a councilman for these muny yoiirs,
andau expression of confidence in his abili
ty and purpose to guard well the interests
of the city at Urge. The Bulletin heart
ly congratulates the people of Cin upon
Mr. Halliday's overwhelming election.

The very emphatic manner In which
the people of Cairo expressed themselves
in favor of Mr. llailiday. as mayor, is in
marked contrast to tho ludicrous timidity
of the Argus.
A free lecture will be delived to-oight
at Sheel's hall by Ryv. W. 8. Weiss, a Jew

whom it can be re-established."
The table elsewhere published is from
the official counts and trives all the votes
cast excepting 29 scattering for alderman
in the First ward, 2 for Mr. Linegar in the
Second ward, and 10 scattering for alder

The Southern Illinois Medical associa
tion will hold its 20th semi-annual session
at Sparta, Wednesday, Msy Oth. The com
tuitteo on arrangements, composed of the
doctors in that city, have taken great pains
to every preparation made for the comlort
and entertainment of their guests. They
have succeeded in getting reduced rates
over the St. Louis and Cairo railroad, tho
8t. Louis Coal railroad, and the Ohio and
Mississippi, and also reduced hack fare".
It Is probable that, on the second evening
of the meeting, Dr. W. P. Kinsr, of St.
Louis, will deliver a public lecture. The
session of the association will probably oc
cupy two days.
Capt. James B. Eads is again at borne
in St. Louis. Although the value of his
great triumps as an engineer and man of
unbounded public spirit arejiatioual and
his professional fame world-wide, it is her
in the west that his personal worth and
name are most cherished. He is a ; roi bet
who is honored in his own country.
A new brick residence- is being put up
on Fourth street, near Ohio levei', by Mr.
Mahanny, proprietor of tho boarding house
at tho corner of Ohio levee and Fourth.
Mr. Mahanny finds it nocessarry to do this
iu ordur to make room in his other build
ing for the growing demand for accommo
dation from the traveling public.
The Argus "will turn Thb Bulletin
over to the tender mercies of Mr. Wm.
Smith." In like manner the big booby
who, hav'iDg been deservedly drubbed by a
spunky school-fellow, for dodging a fair
b-al I instead of catching it, aud thereby
losing the game, bawls like a calf and turns
bis cha8tiser"over to the tender mercits of
'my big brother."
The Cairo Ice company sent arnp!es
of its ice to some of the citizens of Jlnuud
City and they tested it iu comparison with
the natural article and the result is given
as follows by tho Pulaski Patriot: "Two
one-hundred pound cakes one natural
and ono manufactured were placed ' to
gether in an ice chest and it whs found
that the artificial ice lasted ten hours lon
ger thsn that frozen in the ordinary way.
The St. Louis and Cairo railroaJ has a
strong force at work raising the track at
all places where it was overflowed, above
high water mark. They expect to be
ready for the "June rise" in caim one shall
cmiu. They are also building a track
from Columbia to Centerville and George
town, in St. Clair county, which will ulti
mately be extended through the strip of
country lying between the Cairo Short
Line and the St. Louis and Nashville rail
road. The Spring number of Ehrichs' Fash
ion Quarterly more than fulfils the promise
oi its predecessors. Within the compass of
its one hundred and twenty pages, it sets be
fore its readers an absolutely complete epit
ome of the fashions of the coming season in
ladies wearing apparel and fabrics of every
kind; and this, not in the shape of a series
of vague generalties, such as the ordinary
fashion journal too often contents itself
with, but by means ot a succession of clear
ly written descriptions of actual articles,
each accompanied with an engraving ot the
thing descrilied, and all arranged in so or
derly and methodical a manner that any
desired Information can be referred to with
out difficulty. Over sixty new designs for
ladies' and children's dresses are illustrated
and described, together with a large num
ber of trimmed hats, light spring wraps,
and other articles for the adornment ot the
outer woman. The literary features of the
Mngazine also deserves their moed of praise.
Hope Ledyard's talk from the Easy Chair
will be read with interest by mothers, far
and near. Altogether, we think the em
phatic verdict pronounced by every lady
reader on the present number of the Fash,
ion Quarterly will be: "Worth its price
and ten times more." Published by
Ebrich Bros., Eighth Avenue, New York,
at SO cents a year, or IS cents a copy.
Commenting upon the proceedings of
a meeting of colored voters of Quincy, at
which measures were taken for indepen
dent action, tho Cairo Oazette, the repre
sentative colored paper of Southern Illinois
speaks the following ominous words, which,
coming from Mr. W. T. Scott, the colored
leader, must havo some weight even with
tho Bartons of the Republican party: "One
third of the entire Republican voters of this
district are ignored and without representa

namely: Collector of internal revenue,

revenue and postoffice, and we did think
that the tactics of the pust would be chang
ed, and that we would receive representa
tion, but the complexion was tbe same. If
tho heads of these departments will not
give us representation, and the administra
tion continues to sustain thuni, in justice
to ourselves, we ouht to nomioate a color
ed man of this district for congress in 1884.
Our choice would be Dr. J. II. Magee, of
Metropolis, a member of the state central
committee and give him our unanimous
support. If the administration can afford
to appoint and keep such men in positions
as refuse to give us representation, they are
responsible for the result that would follow
which would elect the Democratic nominee
by three thousand majority. If we nomi
nate a colored man, the Republicans will
defeat him, as they did in W. II. Harris
case as county clerk of Pulaski county, A
county ot four hundred Republican majori
ty, he was defeated by three hundred,
which shows tbey will not support a color
ed nominee and the heads of these depart
ments will and appoint. The result can be
no worse, and the sootier we act the better
it will be for our future manhood. If there
is to be no change, why should wecontiuue
to support and keep them in office. We
have been in conversation with a number
of the leading men of this district, and
they suggest that a conference of tli color
ed voters of this district, bo held iu this
ciiy on Wednesday, June 20th, to ink" acr
tion in regrd to our future poiuuti. There
will be a state conference held in S.irlug-
tleld, Wednesday September 30th to take
similar action. Correspondent aldress
The following interesting ei tract con
cerning tbe condtion of tbe jettioe when
Captain Eads visited them recently, is taken
from an interview had with the captain by
a 8t. Louis reporter Saturday :
"What was tno condition ot ib jetty
cbauool when you left there?"
"Toe entire south pass channel has never
been in such elegant condition as at tbe
present time. Thoro were two places in the
pass where tho water was sometimes only
about 20 foet deep. These were the widest
places in it, double tho average wjdtb of
the pass. I ordered certain work to be
constructed there lam fall and we hava now
nothing less than 81 feet through them.
There is, therefore, no place tboughout the
entire pass and jetties where tbe channel
depth is less than thirty foet. Large ships
are frequenting New Orleans more than

that the southwest pass was not suite-

deep. I urged tho improvement of the

improve the large pass. The senate ad

the level of tho flood at Now Orleans!" .
"No- on the contrary they have had a
tendency to reduce tho flood level. The
water is now discharged from that pais
with less frictonal resistance of the bed
than hetore, for in a state of nature it
passed out over a bar a mllo in width. This
width was contracted to less tluiti 1,000
