Everything considered Cairo is in a
better f,x and has better prospects for the
immediate future than any city in this Mic
tion of country. Imports of present and
probable future state of things from every
whore are not overbright, even the several
great business centres ol'tho West are send
ing out complaints and seeking excuses for
unusual depression in business. Cairo does
as well as any of them and will do better
than most of them very soon.

Alderman Mcllilu bud closed tho
Tenth Street sewer Friday nli;ht at ten
o'clock, but on ex itr.ining it yesterday
morning he found that it had opened it

running out again, whereas it was running

'Cat fi-b" Johnny is preparing to build

The fickle Ohio is again on the decline.
A very slight fall was percepitible from
noon till night yesterd ly, though for tho
t veiity-lour hours ending at 2 o'clock a
ri-e of 1 inch was reported by the sign il
service. Declines were reported from all
important points above us excepting Cin
cinnati, where, a rise of two inches occur

Barest Church this morning at 11 o'clock
and at 7:110 this evening, conducted by
Rev. John F. Eden, pastor. Sunday School
at 0:110 a. m. The public and strangers in
the city are cordially invited. The revival
meeting will be continued next week, con
ducted by Rev. L. II. Schuck, of Paducali,
Eight ot ten teams and the necessiry
number of nt"n to attend them were yester
day employed in transferring the gravel
from the barges at the foot of Eighth
Street to Ohio Lewe Stitet, beginning at
the Stone depot. The street is being
raised to the newly established grade along
the Illinois Central track and given a
gradual downward slope toward the silo
walk. The next thing l,on the boards" at the
Opera House will be "A Scrap of Paper"
by the dramatic talent comprised in the
Ideal League. The performance is to he
given Tuesday night, for tho
benefit of the Ladies' Charit
able Sicie'y, whr-Si treasury needs replen
ishing. The cause deserves the support of
the community generally as the performers
will deserve the gratitude for their disin
terested efforts in behalf of the needy. Let
both, therefore, be generously forthcoming.
Uev. Moses Dixon, of the African
Methodist Church, while alighting from
the incoming Illinois Central train as it
came pist iourteentn street yesterday
forenoon, lell and broke his right leg be
low the knee. He was conveyed to his
home on Fourteenth Street and attended
by Dr. Parker. He is about sixfy years of
age and a man of much more than ordinary
intelligence among his race. The mishap
will lay him up for severhl weeks, during
which his congregation will be deprived of
Bird's Point in Mississippi County is
severely afflicted with small-pox. Five
people have died there in all, of this dis
ease, tnree oi wnom died friday an
negroes. There is complaint by peoule
who live there that not sufficient care is
taken by the authorities of the county to
confine the disease, for members of fami-
ilies in which the disease exists, coming
straight from the beds'; le of the sick, cir
culate indiscriminatingly among the rest
of the community, r.urying the germs
of the disease wherever they go. There
are said to be five or six cases still scatter
ed about in the vicinity of Bird's Point.
A little girl was stanling in a crowd
on Eighth Street la-t nigh', making pur
chr.8 s at one of the vegetable stands, when
some one reached over h'-r shoulder
and snatched the pocket-book from her
hands, took the money out and dropped
the book in front of her on the sidewalk.
The girl did not see who did it, nor did any
one else, for there was such a crowding all
along the street. Similar thefts have oc
curred before on the sheet during market
hours and the guilty parties always escaped.
The pickings were always small, however;
in the case rclatud the rascal got only 23c.
Tilden's letter to tho Chicago Iroquoise
Club is exciting much favorable comment
from the press generally. And it deserves
all it gets for a stronger letter and one that
gave more evidence of statesmanship was
never written. The writer of such a letter
must have possessed a vigorous mind and
one of much more than ordinary penitr
ticn, and the possessor of such a mind can
not be a physical wreck. This letter will
elTectually qti ish all that nonsense past, pre
sent and prospective, about Tilden's men
tal and physical weakness, and the Tilden
and Houdrcks boom will march steadily
on. There is no man whom tho Hepubli
cans fear more than tho man who, they
try hard to make tho people bolieve, is an
invalid, deprived of speech and almost of
mind, a mere skeleton whose feeble voice is
drowned in the rattling of his bones by the
palsey. The country is mro for Ti'.den to
day than it was In 187(1, cud thon it was
for him by half a million majority, and
when on the 2 1 of July next oue tuousind
representativo men from all parts of
tho country at'ind up and declare
Tild en and Hendricks to bo the unanimous
choice of the Democracy of this country,
both these gentlemen will bo patriots
enough to sacrifice persoual interests and
overcome any aversion they might have,
anil s'ep forward to again lead their paity
on to victory and the country uut of the
slums of Republicanism.
A small audience greeted the Matie
Williams Company nt the Opera House
yesterday afternoon, tho play being "The
Little Duch e'ss.'t At night the same plav
was produced to a much bitter house. The
performance generally was very satisfac
tory to the audience. Miss Williams is a
sparkling little actress who di serves tho
many compliments she h is received. The
play was written especially frr her. It
was very attractive from beginning to end
and gives Miss Williams an opportunity to
display her powers to great a Ivtntag -,
which she does. Generally the company
was a very good one and deserved better
support than it got here. It was befer
than tho average companies that can bo
gotten here at this season of tho year when
theatre-goers generally tdiouhi be
less fastidious. Even an average
performance once in a while during tl e
spring ami summer will le refreshing to
our people, and we understand that Capt.
Shields will endeavor to not let our theatre
goers languish vt ill do his best (as Lo
doubt he always does) to get the best he
can for tho stage here.
Letter From A Former Cuiro
ite. Ltuiarow.N, III., April 10, 183-1.
Editor Bulletin :
I)E.n Siu: I cannot express the satit
faction I exp trience in rea ling day after
day the Cairo news in The Bulletin. It
is almost li'so living yet among the dear
friends and associates sf the last eight years
of my life. What a fascination Cairo has
for any one who has ever been thoroughly
identified with its people in their hopes
and fears, their difficulties, struggles, dis
appointments and triumphs'. When e
read this spring of the on
coming llood my wife became
more home-sick for Cairo than
ever. Neither of us could feel that it was
quite na'ural for us to be away at such a
time of anxiety and excitement. Yet I
was sure there would be no overflow, and
as I know so well the thoroughly tested
and constantly increasing strength of the
I hope that the sturdy resolution and
energy with which Cairo Ins so successful
ly fought against these three unequalled
annual floods may meet a fitting recom
pense of growth and prosperity.
It will, perhaps, interest many of your
readers to knjwtliat yesteiday we hl a
city election in which the only issue was
whether we should continue to license
saloons orgo back to the old policy of local
After a year's trial of saloons the popu
lar verdict was this: The three anti-license
candidates were elected by average majori
ties of 100, in a total vote of 333. There
will not be this year a single saloon in this
populous county of Fulton, with the ex
ception of one small town. I may properly
ad J, in writing to you, that it is a strongly
Democratic county. There are only two
p ipers published in our town, and both are
Democratic. I send you their last issues
that you may see how they vie with each
other in thj strength of their prohibition
Pardon mo lor introducing another sub
ject of Interest chiefly to myself. On leaving
Cairo I missed some books valuable for
their associations and in some instance as
parts of sets; for instance, Hugh Miller's
"My School and S:hoolmasters," from a
set of Miller's works, given me by my Sun
day School twenty years ago; Addison's
Alexanders Sermons Vol.1; Uncle Tom's
Cabin illustrated; A Felixible Bible given
to my daughter, Maggie; and Marion Har
lan l's Breakfast Lunches or Tea.
I would not have troubled you with a
notice of these books if they had been all;
but I alsj misled tho last volume of "The
Comprehensive Commentary," kindly lent
to me by a friend. I found it impossible
when in Chicago to replace this volume.
If any of yuur readers know the where
abouts of any of these books, especially
the last, I will bo greatly obliged to them
for information sent to me or given to Mr.
With all good wishes for Cairo,
I am Very truly yours.
