Mr. Michael Hoar, an old citizen of
Cairo and for many years connected with
the Illinois Central railroad company here,
died yesterday morning about 7 o'clock, at
St. Mary's Iufirmaay, where bo had been
for but a tew days. He was about fifty
five j-earsof age. He leaves a wife and sev
eral more distant relatives. He was a
most faithful employe and an exemplary
citizen, whose sudden demise will be gener
ally regretted here.
Reports from different parts of South
ern Illinois are to the effect that the rain of
the last few days has been quite general
in this section of country. Mr. B. F. Wil
bourn came down from his country home
yesterday, and says he had to wade through
wator about a foot and a half deep in the
bottoms for a distance of six or seven miles.
Col. Wood was in Vienna, Johnsou county,
Friday, and thero also it rained heavily
nearly all day.
-Yesterday the valves for the Tenth and
Thirty-eighth street sewers arrived. The
river is still about thirteen feet below the
mouths of the sewers, though it is rising.
The valves therefore arrived in ample time,
and those gentlemen who looked wise and
talked with an air of mysterious knowledge
that was painful to listeners, about the cer
tainty of tho river's rising over the sewers
before tho valves would even arrive, will be
sadly disappointed. In the course of the
next few days tho Tenth street valve will be
put in place.
From those who ought to know here
we learn that the Cairo custom office has
paid about double its expenses for a num
ber of years back. Though the collections
are not large they have not been less on an
average than about twice the amount of the
cost of maintaining the office that is tho
customs offico proper. It is a matter of
record that some years ago the customs
office of Paducah was abolished, as were
also those of Alton and Quincy, because
these offices were not pajing expenses. The
custom busincs9 of tho two last named
points was transferred to St. Louis, and that
ol Paducah was all transferred to Cairo.
Recently, for some untenable reason, the
office at Paducah was re-established and as
there is less business at thitt point now than
there was at any time before, the natural
conclusion is, that the government has made
another opening for wasting the public
A boiler explosion occurred yesterday
morning about 10: 30 o'clock, at the freight
depot of the St. Louis & Cairo railroad, at
the point. The boiler was a small one,
about nine feet long and thirty inches in
diameter. It stood upright in a small
building at tho front end and adjoining the
freight depot. It was used to run an en
gine of about ten horse power, and a pump
supplying wator to a largo tank for the
railroad engines. It was in good condition,
apparently, and had not been used very
long. This is evident from tho fact that it
was but slightly injured, only one little in
side sheet being torn out. I tie engineer,
Mr. James Smedly, was in the act of turn
ing on tho injector to let water into the
boiler, when the thing went off with a re
portjabout liko a heavily loaded gun; shot
into the air at an angle of about forty-five
degrees in a southwesterly direction, clear
ing telegraph wires and poles by ten or fif.
teen feet, and fell to the ground bbout two
hundred yards away. The engineer was
knocked down and scalded about the body
and lower limbs, but not seriously. Ho
was at once taken to St. Mary's Infirmary
and Dr. Parker called to attend bim. lie
wll prob ably be up and about in a day or
two. The shed in which the boiler stood
was demolished; the floor was torn up, the
roof stuttered and the walls scattered. The
window over the entrance to the depot was
also demolished by tho concussion, as were
five panes in the front window of tho office.
A double team ot mules belonging to a ne
gro named Amos Amount, which was stand
ing near the door of tho depot at the tinio
of (he explosion, made a dash toward town,
but the wagon struck tho corner of a car
and both mules turned a neat somersault;
but little if any damage was done to either
mules or wagon. Tho cause of the explo
sion was very evidently tho injection of
cold ater into a nearly dry hot boiler which,
almost every schoolboy knows , must pro
duce an explosion. It is asserted that the
engineer was aware that tho boiler was
empty when he turned on the injector, but
tliis is hardly probatlo in view of the fact
tlmt ho is a practical engiueer. The explo
sion was not nearly us destructive as it
might have been.
The B.& 0. Red Hook for Ohio, 1883,
is out, and is beyond question the cleverest
of all issues of this popular political text
book. It would be difficult to imagiue a
more complete showing of tho recent elec
tions than is made in the Red Book. Not only
are tho regular tables of comparisons intro
duced in full detail, but speciul tables as
well, embracing every feature of possible in
terest. For instance, in one table, the vote
of each party is shown by years back to and
including the presidential flection of 1880,
each result being compared by comities
with that of 1883. Another table of much
interest is that in which Hoadley'a vote is
compared with the vote of the Democratic
candidates for governor back to Bishop's
time. A third special table shows Foraker's
vote by comparison with Foster's in 1881
and 1879, and West's in 1877. Tho prohibi
tion vote, and tho vote for tlie prohibition
amendment, is digested to the clearest and
fullest detail throughout tho little book it is
a model of compilation.
Col. G. W. McKeaig and Alderman C.
N. Hughes, of Cairo, are mentioned by the
Republican press ot southern Illinois as
candidates for congress before tho Republi
can convention next year. If Regubhcans
would have a man of a clean public record
for their standard bearer thty could not
select one that would answer tho require
ments better than either of these gentlemen
Both have served the party well for years;
both ure good political workers and men of
good judgment in matters pertaining to the
public good. Another consideration is, that
Cairo is entitled to the candidate anyhow,
for it has been a good many years sin:e a
Cairo or Alexander county man represented
this district in congress. These things
should all be considered by the next Repub
lican convention. If tho spirit'of brotherly
love which was so rudely choaked off in the
party in 1882 ha3 sufficiently revived to
permit a harmonious support of either of
the gentlemen named, who were active in
tho oposiug factions of that memorable cam
paign, then either would prove a formidable
candidate tor the Democracy.
Miss Emily Rigal and the "Plantei's
Wife" will visit Cairo the latter part of this
month, remaining one night only, and we
wish to impress upon our people the fact
that this lady and her company aro not of
the ordinary typo of traveling combinations,
but on the contrary rank with the very
highest dramatic talent before the public.
So enthusiastically havo they been received
in St. Louis, that by special request of the
first people of tho city they have been in
duced to fill there three separate engage
ments since the season opened. Tho acting
of Miss Rigal has drawn editorial opinions
from the entire St. Louis press, which is an
unusual event, and is pronounced by Mr
Dillon in tho editorial columns of the Post-
Dispatch, to bo a very dangerous rival of
the great Clara (Morris, who is without
doubt the greatest actress in her special
line of emotional characters before tho peo
pie. We merely mention the coming of
Miss Rigal, that our people may realize the
treat in store for them, that they are, in
tho language of the Post-Dispatch, really
to have "a genius in their midst."
SOL SMITH RUSSELL.
This inimitable individual will open at
the Opera House on Thursday evening next,
producing for the second time in this city
"Edgewood Folks," a most charming come
dy drama, which has always pleased and
instructed wherever produced.
But little is necessary from us regarding
this gentleman. Ho is well known in Cairo,
having been hero years ago, and it is a
source of pride to us all that tho little fel
low who first appeared upon the lyric
stage in our city, should have reached tho
pinnacle of Buccess as a delineator of
Buder has tickets on sftle.
