EMEIIG from BUSINESS
On "account of old 'age and declining health, I am'com
pelled to retire from the excitement of mercantile life,
I will, therefore, close out my MAMMOTH STOCK of
BOOTS AND SHOES
at a great, sacrifice and 'regardless of cost.
This is no advertising dodge, but the plain
unvarnished truth as can be proved by an exam
ination of our prices compared with former
Our stock has never been so complete nor varied, we show
ing more than 300 different styles and shapes, from the
mo;t fashionable Ladies and Gents to the commonest Work
ing Shoes. We will positively sell every article at a
140 COM' -L A.VE., bet. 8th & 9th.

to bis well assorted stock of

Although we started here vi a mull seal we can now assure tbe
public that we have a ro'in of re-pertable dimensions, filled to re-
Bletlon with a (food stork of ir "K which we will f-ell at the lowest
tvinf prlres. We assort, without frar of coutradiction, thHt nobody

-The selection of Mr. U. U. Mllbiirn n.
Joint local agent for the Iron Mountain and

as a reflection upon Mr. Sears, the local

is a rsllroader of many year's experience and
his management of affairs here, during the
"CAIRO BULLETIN: WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 2. ISM
several years of his official service, has
been very satisfactory to those in authority
over him. The selection of Mr. Millburn
was not based so much on a consideration
of comparative merit as upon the pre
cedents set in all tho Important changes so
far made in the officca of the two railroads.
But Mr. Milburn's retention will give gen
eral satisfaction, alike to the management
and to the public the patrons of the

A large part of our space is filled this
morning by Mayor Hallidny' inaugural ad
dress delivered before the council last night;
but it is the most interesting matter in the
paper and will be read clear through at
tentively by everybody. It is, as predicted
it would be, a full yet concise statement of
the affairs of tbe city in all
their variouss aspects, and nukes
suggestions which will commend themselves
to every reader as of the greatest impor
tance and the greatest good to tho city. It
foreshaddows an administration of munici
pal affairs that will stand forth boldly as
the best and most important in its results
beneficial to tbe city generally, that the
people of Cairo have ever had.
Postmaster Murphy is about to make
anothcr much needed improvement in the
po8tofflce. The rules against permitting
persona who are not sworn agents of the
mail service to come into the mail depart
ment of the office are very strict, and have
not been observed as they should have been
owing to the fuct that when porters carry
ing fie mails from the trains or steamboats
into thepostoffice or vice versa, they would
step directly from the threshold of the
door into the mail distributing department,
Postmaster Murphy baa obtained permission
from the secretary of the treasury to put up
an iron railing 6eperating the mail departs
ment proper from the rest of the room and
shutting out of this department all who
may enter the room. There are other more
important improvements, concerning the
public more directly, in contemplation, of
which mention will be maJe at the proper
- No weather or river report was recieved
by Surgeaut W. II. Ray here yesterday
afternoon or morning and no more reports
ot any kind will be received by him until
probably tho 1st of July. The appropria
tion tor the United States signal service,
for the present fiscal year, has been exhaus
ted or nearly so, and many reports to sal
lur points in the weather circuits have been
cut oil iu order that the balance remaining
in the signal service funi may serve to give
the large cities in the circuits the lull re
ports to the end of the fiscal
year. The morning reports here,
though quite a convenience, could
bavo been dispensed with, but to de
prive us of the eveniog reports also, for two
whole months, is really to awfully mean
for anything is an almost nubearable
lurdship. But what are we going t do
Barton's Free Pree insists that for col
ored men to demand representation in the
offices controlled by the Republican party
is an attempt to "draw the color line" and
this the Free Press believes to be very,
very wicked in a colored man. But the
Free Press hasn't a word of reproof for the
white officeholders who persistenrly "draw
the color line'' in favor of the whites and
against "the poor, down trodden colored
man and a brother." In the estimation of
the Free Press the wrongfulness ot wrong
and the siiifulut ss of sin depend entirely
upon who the sector may be, and tbe right
fulness of drawing a "color lino" depends
upon the color of tbe line intended to be
drawn. If the lino bo white, drawn by
white office holders to exclude colored men
from office, it is all right: if the line be
black, drawn by colore i voters to gain rep
resentation in offices to which tbey have by
their votes elevated some of their white
hoses, then it is all wrong, you know.
A committee of the railroad branch of
tbcj Young Men's Christian Association
here will hold a meeting in a day or two
tortile purpose of tkiog further steps to
ward the completion of arrangements for
the permaient eaUblishment of a public
reading room in a convenient portion of
thecity. Mr. Crane, who has the matter in
charge, baa been busily engaged, with a
number of citizens who aie prominent in
work; ot this kind, in carrying out tbe
plans of the organizition. Subscriptions of
an amount newly large enough to pay tho
rent for a very nice room conveniently sit
uated have already been obtained and the
object of the committee meeting is to pre
pare for soliciting such further subscrip
tions as may bo necessary to furnish and
open the room to the public. Meetings
have been held regularly, the menbership
hag steadily increased and much encourage
ment Las been received from the several
railroad companies in the city.
All changes to be made for tho pres.
eut, In the offices of the Iron Mouotain
and Wabash railroads at this point, were
agreed upon by Superintendents Moore and
nerngan at tiieir conference Monday night;
and these changes consist exclusively in the
consolidation of the freight departments of.
tlie two roads under one agent, Mr. II. II.
Milburn. This information we have from
headquarters. Mr. Wilburn wM attend to
tbe details of tbe consolidation so I'm as
the clerical forces of the two offices are
concerned. It is left entirely with him to
choose the force for the Joint office and he
will probably rettln some of those now emj
ployed in each of thd offices.' The passed
ger agency was not discussed at the con.
terecco. The passeuger, ticket and general
freight1 agencies remain intact for the
present. The question of removing the
general freight office from this city to Mt.
Carmel was also left unconsidered at the
conference; but it is very likely that the
move will be made in order to fjcillitate
the transaction of the business of that of
fice. The removal of the machine shops to
Mt. Carmel will neccsstate the removal of
tho train dispatcher's and train master's
offices there at once, and Superintendent
Moore will also probably soon follow. This
etep will bo necessary in order to enable
Mr. Moore to have an easier and a more
perfect supervision of the entire length of
his division, and he will probably even
then be in Cairo much of the time. Thus it
appears that the only Important change to
be made here is in tbe local freight
agent's offices. All tho other officers
and clerks will remain as heretofore. Mr.
Moore retains supervision ot this division
of the Wabash and Mr. Kerrigan of the
Iron Mountain as heretofore.
Last night's meeting of the city coun
cil was an interesting one. Nearly a full
council was present and tbe auditorium was
crowded with citizens. The routine busi
ness ot tbe meeticg was gone through with
in a hurry. Bills were allowed and refer
red, petitions ditto. Among the ordinances
introduced was one by Alderman McIIale,
requiring a license often dollars per annum
for boot-blacks, the passage ot which will
be applauded by every citizen. Among
the bids were one for furnishing tho city
with lumber for sidewalks, by Mr. James
McGahey which was accepted. Two bids
for the city printing were also read. One
from H. F. Potter, of the Argus, who offer
ed to do all the city printing, including all
uoticcs by officers, etc., lor $30 per month;
and another, from W. T. Scott, of the Ga
zette, who offered to do the same for 300
per annum or 25 per month. Thk Bulle
tin had, for Some reason, failed to make a
bid for the work. The bids offered were
both accompanied by good bonds and Mr.
Scott's bid was unanimously accepted.
Afrer this the mayor read
hid address which was listened
to very attentively throughout and
tho su22estions concerning the levees and
streets and lot filling and several other mat
ters of importance, were heartily applauded
by the audience. The mayor read the ad
dress in a low but clear voice and very
calmly, so that every word was understood.
After the conclusion of tbe address the
mayor made the following nominations, tbe
firt two of which were applauded by those
outside the railing: City Comptroller, M.
J. Howley; city marshal, L. H. Myers;
corporation counsel, W. B. Gilbert ; street
supervisor, N. A. Devore; city jailor, Jno.
Cane, with the understanding that Mrs.
Andrew Cane should be the beneficiary;
assistant chief of the fire departmen, Joseph
Steagalia; special police constable without
pay, on petition of citizens, J. W. Merrl
man, The nominations were all unani
mously confirmed by the council, aud the
mayor stated that be would have to defer
further nominations until next meeting
Council then adjourned.

Dear Sir: I see by Bulletin of 28,
that our people are getting restless about my
bills. 257, which the levee bill, bas been on
21 reading for ten days;417 thestreet filling
loll was ordered to third reading last
Thursday. Your readers should remember
that second reading is the danger point in
the passage of a bill in either house, Senator
Lemma could not very well push tbe bills in
my absence and I was in tbe dead-lock, but
he did cet them to 3d reading as soon as
ho could. Yours Truly,
