A friend in need is a friend indeed. This
none can deny, especially when assistance
is rendered when one is sorely alilicteu
with disease, more particularly those com
plaints and weakness so common to our
female population. Every woman should
know that Electric Bitters are woman's true
friend, and will positively restore her to
Health, even when all other remedies fail.
A single tr.al always proves our assertion.

Latest For 5c. you can pass a bliss

George Williams, the second of the
two negroes who attempted to rob Michael
Conner on Ohio levee Sunday night, was
brought out for preliminary examination
yesterday, but one of the witnesses against
him was out of the city for the time being,
and the case was continued by Magistrate
Comings until to-morrow afternoon, Will
iams being remanded back to jail.
Late Monday night Drs. Parker were
called upon to attend a brakeman on the
Wabash road, named Lighton, whoso up
per lip had been cut by a blow from
the elevated railroad of the box factory, as
he was Btanding erect on top of a train
pissing under it. He was knocked sense
less, and fortunately lay on top of the car
until fouud by the conductor, when he was
conveyed to the doctor's office. His injuries
are not serious. The roadway is high
enough to permit men of ordinary height
standing on cars of ordinary height to pass
under easily without touching. But in
this instance the height ot both was extra
ordinary, hence thu accidnnt.
The election yesterday was about as
uninteresting as a dictionary and passed of
as quietly as do week days in church. The
vote was very liht, the total vote cast in
the city not reaching 325. There being no
intimation received that any other candidate
was in the field anywhere in the county, it
is safe to presume that Hon. T. W. Halli
day was unanimously re-elected County
Commissioner. The questfon of permitting
cows and hogs to ruu at large was, of
course, decided in tho affirmative by a
large majority, which, for several reasons,
chiefly on account of the ftrmers in the
county, whose fences are yearly torn down
by tho flood, is to be regretted.
We have engaged Mr. McCullough,
who while in the service ot the St. Louis
Globe-Democrat, bo persistentlyjadiciously
and successfully traced Miss Mary Churchill,
the mysteriously lost St. Louis girl. We
have engaged him to employ his remarka
ble sleuth-hound qualities in tracking and
bringing to light the mysteriously lost
Sergeant Bluff, of the No Idle Logs, whose
probable whereabiuts luve for some time
been a question of much serious comment.
Wo hope our enterprisein this respect will
be duly appreciated by all our leaders, and
we feel strongly hopclul that it will result
in solving the mystery surrounding the un
accountable absence of the gallant ser
geant. Mr. Dvid Wisher, who was some time
ago indefinitely suspended from a conduc
torship on the evening incoming passenger
train of the Illinois Central railroad, for
some little irregularity in the running of a
funeral train between here and Villa Ridge,
has been reinstated in his old place, and
came in on his old train again last evening
for the first time. The engineer of that
funeral traio, Mr. Porter, who was also sus
pended at the same time, has likewise been
reinstated, and will take his engine out
again as usual for the first time this morn
ing. Tho friends hero of these two gentle
men, who are manywill hear this news
with pleasure. Their reinstatement will be
generally regarded as an acknowledgement
by tho company that, otdinarily at least,
they are exemplary men in their places.
A citizen who has made the subject of
floods and their immediate accompaniments
one of observation for a number of years
predicts that thecomiog January, February
and March will bring us the highest flood
ever known to date. Such predictions can
not have any terrors for tho great majority
of t'airoites, for they are conscious of per
fect security agaiust waters even three or
tour lect higher than those of February iu
this year. But those few citizens here, who
now aio so free to boast or the sufficiency
of our levees, not only as a protection of all
that is within them, but aUo as a means ot
convincing foreign capital that Cairo ia
above all others the place to invest their
thousands; but who, when the rivers reach
forty-nine feet are first to create a panic
aud make a rush for second stories these
few Cairoites and the poor people of Padu-
cah, Shawocetown, Cincinnati, Louisville
and other villages, will regard the predic
tiou with feelings of abject terror. Hut
these good people may draw some cons d .
tion from the fact that high water is co i
tingent upon the weather, and thai u!l
prophecies even remotely relating to the
weather are liable to miscarry. Even Vn
nor has several times made prop'-e'le
The ice company is still runniug its
factory for all it is worth. It hasjust ainit
finished a large store house with acapa-:'y
for two hundred and fifty tons, which will
be tilled up as soorj as possible in order 'o
meet the excessive demand next summer. As
yet, although tho weather is quite cool, ihe
factory can not make more than it can i II,
often not as much. It is evident that be
fore very long the company will havo to in
crease tho captcity ot its institution. This
it could do without great additional ex
pense, as the engine and other machinery
was bought large enough with this end in
view, and it would ouly.be necessary to put
in another tank and enlarge the condensing
apperatu. The remarkable success attend
ing this manufacturing enterprise here
ought to encourage other citizens to begin
other branches of manufacture.
If a few of our monied men, who spend
much time in running a little store or a
little commission office or a little comer
grocery, and at the sarao time pay consid
erable attention to a little Chicago "bucket
shop;" who are dissatisfied because the
"margins" aro always the "other way," and
vent their dissatisfaction upon the town
and everything thereunto appertaining if
these gentlemen would only put their heads
and their few lose dollars together and put
up a little factory of some kind in the city,
and give it their whole attention, their ideas
of the place would undergo a mirked
change for the better, mil so would their
fortunes. They would ho happier and
healthier and wealthier; and where now
they see a "dead town that was destined
never to be anything but a cum try railroad
way station," they would soon see a big city
full of buisy and prosperous people.
The season of the year is now fairly
upon us when the festiv.s river roustabout

Cometh in from the couutry, to "take in"
the town, and generally frequenteth the
low dives. As tho aforesaid youth wander
eth carelessly to and fro in the slums of
the city, the aforesaid roustabout slug
ged him on the head or "holdeth him
up" and garroteth him despoilctu hiin of
his cheap jewelry and his "dollar or two"
of "the filthy" that he intended to squan

much more demoralizing to hiin than the
littlo "slug" or "choke" given by the fes
tive roustabout could ever be. The victim
then sotteth up a loud wailing and hue aud
cry against tho town and its people, and

It is not at all a matter for surprise
that the government ot the United States
should have its attention attracted to Cairo
as the most convenient point tor a very im
portant manufacturing enterprise. The
government proposes to establish an inland
cannon foundry, after the manner of the
small arm shops at Springfield, Mass. It is
necessary, ot course, that such an institu
tion should be located at a point from
whence all parts of the country can be
reached with the least delay and, naturally,
the government has firBt dropped upon Cairo
as in every way answering the requirements
ot tho enterprise. The institution will bo a
big affair and will bo a great need. It is
understood than an agent from Washing
ton is on bis way here to view the situation,
consult with government officials here as to
the site for tho institution, and report to
the proper department. It was demonstra
ted during tho war and is now evident
more than ever, that Cairo is the most con
venient place as a point of distribu
tive in the country at all seasons
of the year. Three rivers, the
Ohio and Upper and Lower Mississippi,
and eight railroads stretching out in every
direction, give Cairo an importance in the
eyes of all who contemplate the establish
ment of auy manufacturing enterprise,
that no other city in the country can ap
proach. Tho Wowing from tha St. Joe Ad
vance, edited by a colored man, is an in
teresting expression of opinion on the civil
rights question : "As we said above,
we believe tho civil rights bill was only
passed as a bait to catch tuo colored man's
vote, and was never Intended to be en
forced. Congress can't pass a law giving a
man respectability; a man will command
respect as he deserves it. The colored man
is entitled to the same rights as a white
man, and no more, and that is all the
rights he ought to ask. The civil rights
bill purported to give him more rights
than the white man, which any thinking
colored man ought to be able to see was a
fraud on its face, and only intended to
tickle and flatter the negrors to secure
their support. The negroes have been vot
ing tho Republican! into power ever since
wo have had the right of suffrage, and we
have received for our party loyalty just
such sweetened swill as this civil rights
bill. The course for the colored people to
pursue, in our judgment, is to maintain our
independence, cultivate habits of industry,
look wll to tho education and culture of
our children, and shun, as we would a
rabid animal, every designing politician or
political party that seeks, by soothing and
seductive flattery, to capture the colored
man's vote. Tho colored people are inter
ested more in securing homes, churches,
school houses, comfortable clothing, book?,
and tlie comforts, conveniences and neces
saries of life, than they are in politics. We
have boon held to be as completely the
common property of the Republican party
as we have been taught that the Demo
cratic party is our common enemy.
For some time back the Republican
press of this district has held up its editori
al hands in error at an alleged outrage that
rua-ked white Democrats were said to have
attempted to perpetrate upon several poor,
helpless negroes employed upon tho farm of
a widow named Wakely, at Cobden, and
Republican correspondents sent planing
specials and communications to the larger
Republican dailies in St. Louis and else
where, which published them under awful
headlines and noticed them at length edi
torially. And now, all of a sudden, it
transpires that the whole story is a piece of
Republican falsehood, as lying a Republi
can lie as ever a Republican has lied. Mr.
A. DuBois, a Republican, but one of the
honest kind and editor of a Republican
paper published right in Cobden, coriects
the stury undf r the head of "a false accusa
tion" and this in a communication to the
Globe-Democrat: "In your issue of the
1 8th you have a short notice editorial in
which you do this town a very great injus
tice. Iu brief, you charge us with haviDg
recently attempted to hull-dozo some col
ored men, and say such has bren our prac
tice since the war. Evidently you have
strayed into the wrong camp. Now for
facts. There are sixty colored voters in
Cobden. They have a fine school building
erected by the tax-payers of the town. A
six months' school with a white teacher is
maintained for them at the public expense.
They havo two organized churches with
two colored pastors, and have a colored
Odd Fellows lodge, with over forty mem
bers. There is not a town in the state in
which the colored people's right of citizen
ship are more strictly observed than in
Cobden, no instance having ever occurred
here in which a colored man has complain
ed of rights, political, or social, being de
nied him. A town that casts a Republican
majority vote at every election, and grows
and ships more fruit than any other town in
the west is not likely to be of that grade of
intelligence that is famous for drawing the
color line." And in conclusion ho says, "if
the information on which your article, wag
based, was obtained from any of your cor
respondents, I advise you for the credit of
the Globe-Democrat, which has a deserved
ly large circulation in this regiou to drop
them and employ such as can discriminate
between fact and fancy."
