The Democrats met in all the city pre

The delegates were nearly all inatiuctcd for
Burton and Albright, who will carry the
County Convention Monday with ease un

Some years ago, soon after the little
Alexander County Bank had been establish
ed, tho Metropolitan Bunk of New Yoik
City was its correspondent in that city,
But the connection was not maintained
long; the Metropolitan one fine day con
cluded to sever its relations with the little
Cairo bank and sunt word that as there had
been vaguo reports of fhe latter's instabili
ty, it, the Metropolitan, declined to serve
any longer as correspondent for it in the
Queen City of the East. But the Alexan
der bank survived this blow and prospered,
and time has proven that the Metropolitan
really did the little bank a great favor in
withdrawing its support (?) lroni it.
The Union Pacific Tourist, a guide to
the health and pleasure resorts of the Rocky
Mountains and Pacific Coait region", has
just been issued by the Union Pacific Rail
way, and is one of the most elegant tourist
books on tho Great West ever published.
It is a volume of sixty pages with richly
illuminated covers and abound in valuable
statistical information, interspersed with a
large number of fine cuts representing
points of interest in Colorado and Utah, as
well as in that great wonderland of the
world, the Yellowstone Purk. The book
will be furnished free on application to

The following advertisement at pears
in last week's Anna Talk : "As the small
pox is raging in Cuiro, DuQuoin and other
towns, now is a good time to bo vaccinated.
Dr. Hale & Martin have fresh virus and
will do the job for you." The ad. has been
running Bcveral weeks and is to run sevetal
weeks longer, if we read the marks correct
ly. The advertisers have fresh virus for
Bale and not only violate professional
etiquette in advertising it at all, but
are guilty of a gross wrong
when they take occasion at
the same time to slander several
cities in tho immediate neighborhood. So
far as Cairo is concerned Drs. Hale & Mar
tin are publishing a down riht falsehood,
for small-pox is not raging here and has
not been for years. Our pest-house has
been closed for several weeks and is closed
now. , Wo have a right, therefore, to de
mand, and we do demand, that Drs. Hale
& Martin correct their advertBemeat so as
to exclude Cairo from their list of afflicted
towns. We do not believe that the gentle
men were prompted by malice toward
Cairo, in publishing the statement com
plained of; we will take the more charitable
view, that thoughtlessness and a desire to
attract public attention and custom are ex
clusively to blame. We have no doubt,
therefore, that they will promptly correct
their "ad."-wnen notinea of the injustice
and injury it does to Cairo.
Mere outward applications of to-called
remedies for rheumatism and neuralgia
must necessarilt fail ol their purpose, be
cause the origin of the trouble is Je!t un
touched. These twin d lBeaana are paintil
ly diseases of thr blood, and must be dealt
with accordingly. This is fust what Athlo-
pnoroe aims to do, and the success that hat
been met with can best be measured bv the
hundreds of unsought testimonials that the
uiBuuiaciurerB are aauy receiving. j

The Opening- Hour.
New York, May 10. Somo as busy
Hceues us have characterized tho streets
In the vicinity of the Stock Exchange for
tho past few days, presented themselves
this morning. The feeling of anxiety In
regard to the opening was greatly inten
Hilled by the announcement yesterday af
tornoon of the suspension of Flake &
Hatch and predictions of more to follow.
This morning the brokers were on hand
curly, and when tho chairman rapped the
signal for opening business, the board
room and Stock Exchange were densely
llrokers ran hurriedly from one crowd
to another at which the various stocks
were being sold and anxiously watched
the opening transactions. On the first
few sales pricos showed a fractional de

ing. All offerings were rapidly bought
In, however, and fifteen mluuces after tho
opening hour prices began to go up. A
comparison of quotations current at 10:80

showed un improvement of 1-4 to 2 1-4
per cent, lu the majority of cases Cen

This Improvement was hardly recorded
when camo the news of the bus
peuslon ot tho Newark Savings Bunk, and
ulmoHt Immediately following this tho an
nouncement of the failure of tho broker
firm ot Henry C. Hardy & Sous. These
announcements caused a rush to sell, and
some of the hour operators took advant
ugu of the prevailing excitement to raid
the list. Lake Shore was singled out and
sold down at a rapid rate, and the whole
list by noon showed a decline to 8 1-2 per
In the stocks mentioned from noon to
one o'clock there was very little business
done, but the tone was firmer and prices
ut the tune of writing show an advance
of one-half to three per cent.
11 a. m. Dealings in the Stock Ex
change thus far have been on a limited
scale. Operators are exercising great
caution. The feeling is very feverish aud
uncertain, and prices are Irregular.
Nkw Yoke, May 10. The failure of H.
C. Hardy Co. has just been announced
In the Stock Exchange.
A rumor has just reached the streets
that application has been made to put a
prominent banking bouse in Newark, N.
J., In the hands of a receiver. Tho name
of tho institution Is not mentioned. The
rumor caused an unsettled feeling, aud
the outlook for the duy appears gloomy.
Closed by Compulsion,
Newark, N. J., May 16. The Newark
Savings Bank has just closed by order of
No Money Offering.
New York, Muy 1G. Flske& Hatch say
the coupons on Central Pacific stock will
be paid at the office of the company at the
Mills building. Union Pacific bonds have
little or no market this morning, the
regular dealerot putting in an appear
ance. There Is no money offering at this
hour 11:30 a. iu.
Legal Tender in Demand.
Nkw Yohk, May 10. Assistant Treas
urer Acton says there was a large demand
for legal tender yesterday, and $3,500,000
was paid out, and up to noon to-day
000,000 more, and nearly $1,000,000 in
silver certificates. The withdrawal of
silver certificates was for the payment of
depositors by Savings Banks.
Cautious Oil Brokers.
Pittsburgh, Pa., May 16. For fear
tho banks may throw Immense blocks of
oil stocks on the market and precipitate
a crash, the oil brokers will buy nothing,
thus forcing the banks to carry on their
owu affairs. No sales have been made
for some tlmo in either Exchange, and
the market now stands at 75 1-4.
Down They Go.
Bradford, Pa., May 16. The failure
of the Luna Valley Bank yesterday was
followed this morning by the collapse of
tho Exchange Bank, and great excitement
exists. The streets are filled with people
aud the sltuatlou Is panicky. The failures
of Jefferson 4 Varney aud G. U. Brooks,
oil brokers, are also announced, and
others are anticipated.
Bradford, Pa., May 16. The Exchange
Bank, a private Institution, Null & Ego,
proprietors, resumed business this morn
ing. Perd. Ward a Basoal.
New York, May 16. The Investigation
into the affairs of Grant & Ward prove
conclusively that Ferdinand Ward acted
the part of a rascal throughout, using
General Grant and bis sons as mere
dupes. The Grants trusted everything to
him, and ho violated every trust. Crim
inal proceedings will probably be com
menced against him. The firm's Indebt
edness will be about 93,000,000.
Qijincy, III., May 1C This morning
no fear is felt for the other banks should
the trouble not become general in the
East. The failed Union Bank has suffered
numerous losses and been considered
weak for some time, though Its directors
and heavy stockholders were among the

The Week's Failures.
Nkw Yohk, May 10. Fuilurcs for tho
lust seven days, reported by It. G.'Dun
I Co., are: United States, 182; Canada,
twenty-seven; total, 201), an Increase ol
What They Have to Say for Themselves.
Nkw York, May 10. Mr. Hardy, Sr.,
ot the firm of Hardy 4 Sous, said thut
tbelr liabilities will uot exceed $800,000,
and that ho believed tho ussets were
worth thut amount.
Nelson, Itobluson 4 Co. say that If they
were given proper time they could pay
their creditors lu full uud huve a hand
At the olllce of Grunt 4 Ward, Win.
Wurd, suld: "Ttius lur Mr. Duvles has
discovered liabilities amounting to be
tween $14,000,000 and $15,000,000, und
collateral for these debts worth probably
$10,000,000 to $12,000,000. 1 do llo
think the unsecured debts amount to more
than $3,0110,000 or $1,000,000."
Hutch, of Fisk 4 Hatch, said ho was
unuble as yet to make any statement
about the firm's affairs, but It Is generally
expected that tho obligations of Fi.sk 4

At the office of O. M. Bogart 4 Co., as
signee Wheeler said: "It will probably
bo a week before I can huve a statement
ready." Ho denied the charges of the re
hypothecation of bonds by the firm.
Dimock 4 Co., assert that they have
$1,500,000 over and above tho liabilities,
aud If the can gain a little time they will
settle Aollar for dollar.
Goff 4 Randall say it will be threo or
four days before their statement will bo
ready for publication.
Donucll, Lawson 4 Simpson hope to
know where they htand by to-morrow
night. One of the firm said: "We have
transferred all accounts of our Western
correspondents to other Institutions, so
they will not suffer any loss, and havo
telegraphed to oiffers asking what dispo
sition we shall mako of their accounts
We shall know by Monday mornina
whether or not we can resume business."
Receiver Johnston, of the Marine Bank,
says ho will not have his statement ready
before tho latter purt of next week.
The New York Press on the Situation
The Jrtfunesays: "Senator Sherman,
who can speak with authority on such fl
subject, thinks thut the financial flurry ill
the street will iu some respects, prov
beneficial. He regards it as mere'
ly a local result of over specula
tion, and that tho effect will be
to turn surplus capital Into legiti
mate channels. That will no doubt prove1
to be the outcome. In regard to thi
coming political campaign he thinks thut
the tariff will bo the leading issue. It
must not be forgotten that the course ol
the Democrats lu Congress on this Bub-
tect has nad much to do with exciting
The Sun says: "If reports bo true,
the member of the family who Is the most
deserving of commiseration Is the fathcr4
In-law of Ulysses Grant, Jr., Senator
Chaffee. It is stated that he left the
major part of his fortune with the firm
for safe-keeping, and that all of It has
been absorbed by Ward and has disap
peared. Senator Chaffee is probably a
much more appropriate subject for us
slstauce than General Grant. He never
shared In the profits of the firm, and Is an
innocent loser by Its downfall."
The Times says : "The difference be
tween the young country banker from
Minnesota, whom Mr. Sabln made Comp
troller of the Currency, and Mr. Folger
Is that the former frankly confesses that
he can throw no light on the Wall street
troubles, while the latter has adopted
and acted on au utterly false view of
them. It must be confessed that
the new Comptroller has done better
than the more experienced Secretary, for
be has confined himself to doing with
caution, and on good counsel, the little
he has had to do, while Mr. Folger has
made the Treasury Department ridiculous
by his foolish and useless Interference.
If he was led to do so by any of the gen
tlemen who claim to manage and control
the great business Interests which center
here and involve the prosperity of tho
whole country (vide the call for an Ar
thur meeting passim), he has been badly
