or bad the "flooence'' men in those wards
where more than one candidate is voluntar

their forces, and it is encumbent upon the
men of principle to notbe intimidated by a
little mud or rain, into staying away from
the polls and thus consigning the men who
are willing to sacrafice their personal in-
terssts for the good of the public for two
years, entirely to the mercy of the rapaci

habit of bleeding candidates at all elec
The air is thick with rumors of great
real estate improvements to be made by the
Singer Company this spring and summer.
The factory turns out upwards of two
thousands machine table every day now
and there is urgent demand for more, while
there is great need of more room even at
the present rate of work. Ii is a settled
fact that the improvements spoken of in
these columns some time ago will soon be
begun. Among these is a brick building
three stories high, sixty feet wide and two
hundred feet long, and several smaller ones
of brick and frame. It is expected that
work will begin as soon as the ground will
be in a condition to receive the foundation
and to permit transporting the material.
The report that the Massac County
Convention adjourned for two weeks with
out selecting delegates to the Congressional
Convention is not true. The Massac Jour
nal of Saturday gives the following as the
names of the congressional delegates selec

last Saturday : W. R. Brown, J. II. Norris,
Ben Rankins, R. II. Leek, W. C. Arm
strong, Burton Sexton, N. J. Slack, It.
Barham, J. W. Iliedeman, N. J. McCrackcn,
Wm. Tindall, Samuel Wells, R. W. Mc
Cartney, J. II. Magee, J. E. Oowan. The
delegation was instructed to vote for Capt.
Thomas for Congress and the convention
adjourned sine die having done all there
was for a County Convention to do.
The revival meetings at the Baptist
Church were well attended Sunday, me
house in tho evening being crowded. Rev.
Mr. Chubbuck's theme in the morning was
"The Good Shepard" and at night "Re
pentance," both of which were handled in
a manner which showed that the speaker's
reputation as an able revivalist is well de
served. At the eveninp; service several
rose, and five or six went forward for pray
ers. The attendance last evening was re
duced by the hard rain that began just
before the hour of assembling. After an
earnest discourse from John III, xvi a
number responded to tho invitation to come
forward and four professed conversion

The work in tho Art classes of the
Library Association is going on with great
success and some excellent work is being
accomplished at the studio of Mr. Hough
on Eighth Street. In response to an invi
tation from the Peoria Art Club some very
nice pieces were sent last week from the
Lairo Art classes fo that city to an Art ox-
uiuition now In progress. The list em
braced two fine landscape in oil by Mr.
Hough, lovely fruit and flower pieces in
oil by Mrs. G. M. Fisher and Miss Nellie
Fisher; three beautiful landscapes in pastel
by Mrs. W. R. Smith ; crayon drawings by
Miss Bettie Korsmeyer; a carved walnut
cabinet and elegant brass sconce in carved
frame by Mrs. F. Korsmeyer, and a valua
ble collection of limnKes, underglaze pot
tery by Mrs. H. II. Candee. The whole
collection was valued at over $100, and
will do credit to the artistic taste and cul
ture of Cairo, which has much advanced by
tho indefatigable and phasing instruction
of M.. Hough, who is an artist of great
merit and deserves every recognition and
News of the death of Mr. H. H. Mil
burn roached here by telegraph Sunday
morning. It came frm Colorado, Texas,
where deceased had been stationed for some
timo as agent of the Texas Pacific Railroad.
The sad event occurred early Sunday morn
ing. It was unexpected, though Mr. Mil
burn had been ailing for some time. Too
close application to his office duties here,
was the prime cause of his sickness which
developed into consumption. He left here
with a view to improvice his health, but
without avail. He leaves a wife and child,
who, accompanied by his mother, were
just about to leave here to take up their
permanent residence at Colorado to here
their household effects bad preceded them.
His remains will be brought here and will
probably be interred somewhere in Ken
tucky where his father is buried. They
will arrive to-day on the Iron Mountain
The excitement of the campaign in
the Second ward has brought forth some
very crooked ideas about the taxes levied
this year tor city purposes. From a fight
between tho two candidates for alderman,
upon matters concorning the ward alone (in
which we do not care to interfere at all),
it has resolved itself into a fight against
the administration touching Questions of
policy in the management ot tho affiirs of
the city at large; and the cry of "high
taxes" is raised not between the candi
dates, but against the administration as a
whole. If the cry of "high taxes' were ut
all in order as against the municipal author
ities we would have nothing
to say, but since it is
not, since it wrongs the innocent and may
deceive the public with reference to a mat
ter of vital impoitance to them, it is but
right that the truth should be told. The
fact ip, that the tax for municipal purposes
for this yur is not one ceut higher than it
was la3t year and is much iower than it
was in previous years. This year's levy, as
published in Thk Bulletin at the timo it
was made, is forty thousand dollars, just
exactly what it was last year. If the.e is
any increase in the amount of taxes assess
ed against any individual, the increase is
due probably in part to a raised assessment,
that was entirety justifiable, do doubt, and
in part to tiio tax levied in compliance with
an order of the U. S. Court, to satisfy judg
ments obtained against the county some
years ago. Furthermore, it is a fact which
none who have interested themselves at all
public affairs will deny,
that while the tax levy has
been no higher than it was in former
years, the amount of work done with the
money obtained, in the way of permanent,
material improvements in and about the
city, has been greater during the lust
year than in any dozen years previous.
The streets have been kept in better condi
tion, the levee has been transformed from a
mere pretense into one of the finest banks
in the country, behind wuich the people
have lived in pertect safety and quiet.
Other matters might be cited, but it is
unnecessary, for tho levee alone would be
a sufficient return for a much greater ex
pense than it has occasioned- would have
been a sufficient return for a large increase
in the tax levy over that of former years.
No man can say with any show of reason
that the money collected has not been spent
judiciously, honestly and with all due re
gard tor the very bests interests of the city.
All this is said only with a view to correct
ing wreng impressions concerning a matter
of great importance to the city at large, and
net at all with a view to affecting in any
W6f the results of the election in the
