The Argus' column and a quarter arti

urday morning from his long trip east, to
foreign shores tor his health. Ho is much
improved; his lungs are again almost en
tirely sound and his voice is stronger than
it was when he left. He believes that his
entire recovery is but a question of time.
He will remain at home during the sum
mer and leave again for a milder climate at
the approach of winter.
The funeral of a colored man for some
time employed in the Cairo City mills, took
place Sunday afternoon. For I colored
funeral it was very largely attended; Sun
day funerals are always largely attended ;
many people, without regard to color or
age, go to a funeral just to kill time and of
ten come back home with the consciousness
of having had "just a splendid time, and
such a delightful ride."
The ripening fruit in some of the pri
vate little orchards in the city serves as a
temptation too strong to resist in the cases
of some boys and they help themselves
freely and boldly to all they want, in broad
day light some times. Complaint has
reached police headquarters and the officers
have instructions to keep a lookout for this
sort of offenders against the law. Yester
day a young fellow namod Dennis Cotton
was up before Magistrato Comings on this
Golconda Hurald : "Cairo and Mound
City aro ot tho number of towns which
have followed tho example of Chicago and
extend the license of saloon-keepers to tho
expiration of tho presont fiscal year at the
old rates." With reference to Cairo the
Herald is mistaken, The fiscal year in this
city terminated May 30th, and tho city
council could not havo refused saloon
keepers licenses at tho old rates for two
months In order to make them pay the ad
vanced ratcB established by tho Harper bill

Speaking of tho performance "Engag

Ideal League last week, the editor! of the
Massac Journal who was present wrltosi
"Wo accepted from one of tho members of
tho Ideal Leaguo an Invitation and tickets
, t ) tho drama "Engaged" given by the club
at tho Opera IIouso last evening. It was a
complimentary entertainment, which prob
ably accounted for the house being crowd
ed by an immense audience. The play was
splendid, considering that they were
amateurs, and did credit to our sister city.
They were greatly assisted by the beauti
ful scenery, so well adapted to the play.
Every town that is of any note should have
a club like the "Ideal Lcngue" of Cairo, in
which musical ami dramatical talent can
be developed. Tho club is thoroughly or
ganized and heretofore has given entertain
ments in parlors, only."
Dr. Nowotuey has concluded to settle
among us again after all. He has bought
the drug store of Mr. W. W, Ireland and
tho residence of Dr. Maxey, at Hedges
Park, and will practice medicine and sell
drugs in that little village. He was in this
city yesterday purchasing fixtures and
stock for hit business and he will bo In full
blast in a few days. The doctor has travel
ed considerable of late, has seen many
places that he liked, but, everything takeu
together, ho finds it best to come back to
his fust love, old Alexander county.
The street committee had a meeting at
the council chamber last night. It was an
unusually long meeting and more work
was done than perhaps at any meeting for
years previous, and it was some important
work, too, relating principally to the side
walks and streets of the city. Among its
recommendations to the council to-night
will be the filling up of Commercial avenue
ubovo Twentieth street, to the grade now
established, so as to have one street that
shall be high and dry clear out to the Cross
levee, nt all seasons ot the year. The com
mittee's recommendations of the commit
tee will doubtless all be concurred in by the
Justice Osborne disposed of several
cases of more or less importance Saturday.
George Hill, the young Paducah negro who
shot at another negro name To be Bell, Fri
day, was held to biil in tho sum
of $50 and taken to the
county jail to await trial by the circuit
court at its next term. Peter Duffy was up
for assaulting and striking Mrs. Williams
and it proving a case of rather serious
nature, the court fined him 150 and costs.
May Hays was fined $5 and costs for using
bad language and Rtchel Morris, the simu
amount for being generally disorderly. In
all but the last case, Mr. J. R. Cunningham
appeared for the prosecutive.
The Theatre Comique stago is crowded
with some of the best variety talent this
week, for the especial accommodation of
amusement seekers on tho 4th. J. Arthur
Doty, the most perfect female impersonator,
is there for another week; Miss Lura Lee,
the Nightingale of the variety stae, a title
she may justly claim, continues to delight
audiences with her exquisitu rooditions;
Miss R sa Hall is again on the boards in
new songs given in her inimitable and at
tractive mnnner; Biker and Kellog is a
team of musical prodigies, who produce
sweet melody from everything; Miss Lizzie
Shelton is a sprightly little song and dance
artisto who appears here for the first time

night; and last but not least we have the

The Republicans ot Iowa, confident of

That while we extend our earnest sympathy
to tho people who are struggling for their
rights in opposition to oppressive laws and
systems; we also place ourselves on the
side of tho homes of our own people in
their contest against saloon; that when the
Republican party of Iowa pledged itself in
1879 to give the people at a special non-par
tisan election an opportunity to vote on the
proposition to bo amend tho constitution of
the state as to prohibit the manufacture and
Bale, as a beverage, of intoxicating liquors,
it acted in good filth, and the special elec
tion of Juno 27, 1332, is an evidonce of tho
redemption of the pledge so gives, and wo
now declare that we accept the result of
that election, with its majority of 29,984
votes, in favor of the adoption of the
amendment so voted on as a verdict of the
people in favor of constitutional and statu
tory prohibition, and without making any
new test ot party fealty, we recognize tho
moral and political obligation which re
quires tho enactment ot such laws by tho
next general assembly as shall provide for
the establishment and enforcement of tho
principle and policy affirmed by tho peoplo
at said non-partiBan election, and to that
end tho faith ot tho party is pledged."
