had robbed a man named Win. Rtdcliffe,

the alarm. O'Brien made good time for
anywhere and was soon loat to sight. The
Chief gut track of him, however, and caught
him near the brick yard. The robber
"turned up" the "plunder" which consisted
of $1.35 in money and a railroad ticket
for Chicago worth $10. Ha will probably
be tried in the County Court to-day.
Ktie King and party exhibited at the
Optra House Sunday uiht to a fair house.
The performance was interesting enough.
Several trickB wreso neatly done that they
biffled nearly tvt-ry body in the house for
the time being; but, as at previous per
formances of this nature, there was nwthiii"
done that even tended to support the claim
of the performers, that super-hutinn agen
cies aided in the exhibition, thruh
"Katie King" as a medium. Much dis
pleasure was manifested by many who
went to attend the performance a the ad
vertising trick of the advance hgeut. The
only advertised price of admirsion was 10c.
without any qualification as to seats; but
when tho people applied for tickets they
were told that the 10c. tickets would ad
mit them only to the gallery and that the
tlre.-s circle ami parquet circle mats would
cost ilium 2c. ami 35c. respectively. Some
very feeling comments were madu upon
tliis means of catching tlio public, and sev
eral gentlemen made considerable of au ex-
hibition of themselves at the doer. It is
not probibld that thu numbers left very
strongly impressed with the untire wisdom
of the trick, for there is good reason to be
lieve that it did not pn.vu as profitable as
How Sunday was observed by the Cairo
Cairo Commaudery No. 13 of Knights
Templar celebrated its annual Memorial
D.iy at Beech Grove Cemetery last Sunday.
Cairo Commaudery has the honor of having
itself instituted this Memorial Day in the
State of Illinois, and of having prepared
the rituil observed in the service on this
occasion, which ritual has since been adopt
ed by other Commanderies in the State,
for similar occasions.
C'dro Commaudery is one of the oldest in
the State, having been instituted Oct. 25tln
1804; aud it has from time to time given
to the Order of the State at largo some of
its highest officers. Sir Knight P. W. Bar
clay is Past Grand Eminent Commander,
aud Sir Knight C. W. Dunning is Grand
Geueralissuuo. Tho Comnvindery is now
officered as follows:
Eminent Commander, Sir Kuight Win.
M. Murphy ; Generalissimo, Sir Knight Juo.
Autrim; Captain General, Sir Knight Geo.
E. O'llara; Treasurer, Sir Knight J. A.
Goldstine; Recorder, Sir Knight A. II.
Into; Senior Wardeu, Sir Knight C. W.
Dunning; Standard bearer, Sir Knight M.
C. Crawlord; Sword Bearer, Sir Knight N

Last Sunday was tho third annual observ
ance of the Memorial Diy. The event ex
cited general interest in the community for
the Knights have long had the reputation
of doing whatever they did with conssider
able eclat. The day was a beautiful one
for such au occasion, or for any outdoor
demonstration, festivity or ceremony. The
temperature was mild, sky clear, all nature
serene and lovely in her full spring cos
tume. About 2 o'clock p. m. tho Commandery
started from the asylum on Commercial
Avenue, clad in their splendid regalia and
headed by the Cairo Cornet Baud, for a
special train of engine nnd two coaches on
the Illinois Central nt Sixth Street. There
a number of ladies had already g .thcred
and were taken in charge by the Sir
Knights. Several huge baskets of floral
ornaments were also taken along, to be
used in the ceremony at the Cemetery. Ar
rived at the Cemetery the Kuights formed
into lino again, und preceded by the band
and followed by the ladies, marched slowly
up the grassy hill, to tho solemn air of a
death inarch impressively rendered by the
band. Several hundred people had pre
ceded the Knights to tho Cemetery, in
buggies from Cairo and from the vicinity
of the Cemetery, and by special train from
Mound City. These filed along either side
of the line of march and attended tho sub
sequent ceremony with marked attention.
On a grassy plain on top of tho mound,
surrounded by hundreds of beautiful mar
ble memorials that marked tho tombs of
loved ones one before, aud amid a grove
of trees whose leafy branches closed as a
bower over their plumed heads, the
Knights formed in martial array under
command of Sir Knight Geo. E. O'Hara,
C. G., aud listened to the Emiueut Com
mander's address, delivered by Sir Knight
C. W. Dunuiug. An impressive prayer ser
vice was lead by Prelate P. W. Barclay,
and this was followed by the oration, de
livered by Sir Knight Rev. F. P. Daven
port, and which was beyond question one
of the finest and most appropriate discourses
ever given ou such an occasion. The ora
tion concluded, tho band struck up a medly
of solemn airs, to the strains of which the
Commandery marched in double file from
one to the other of the several tombs of the
Sir Kuights buried there aud reverentially
deposited upon each a profusion of the
most beautiful flowers arranged in virious
suggestive forms, such as anchors, crosses,
wreaths and pillows. The tombs thus visit
ed were those of L. J. Jorgenson, Rector
Dilon-Lep, James B. Fulton, C. Nenninger
and Capt. W. L. Ilambleton; and tho tombs
of Miss Rearden, daughter of Sir Knight
J as. S. Rearden, and of Miss McEwen,
daughter of Sir Knight John McEwen, were
also decorated by the Knights. This cere
mony concluded, all returned to the train
in the order in which they had come, keep
ing step to tho soul Btirring strains ot "The
Sweet Uye-and-Bye;" and everybody reach
ed home by 5 o'clock, feeliug thut they had
spent these Beveral hours in a manner en
tirely appropriate to the day devoted by
Christiuuity to the worship of the supreme

Chicago, III., June 2. A very Import
ant change in the political situation just
developed, Is the sudden turn taken by
tho leading Arthur men. They held a se
cret meeting last night and decided to
drop Arthur as soon as it becomes evldeut
that he can not be nominated, and all the
strength which they can coutrol will be
delivered to Harrison, of Indiana.
Schurz, Roosevelt and the New York
and Vermont supporters of Edmunds
were cogtilzaut of this movement aud are
in sympathy with It, though taking no
part iu the meetings. The scheme was
originated by tho New York business
men, who are here for Arthur and who
have now become well-nigh hopeless of
his nomination. The National Committee
holds a meeting at uoou to-day, when It
will perfect tho details of a temporary
organization. Members of the commit
tee, iu discussing the situation among
themselves, say that
AKTHUlt HAS NO CIIANCK
for the nomination whatever.
Colonel Jeff Chaudler, of Washington
was in the crowd at the Blaine head
quarters this morning. "Arthur Is
dead," said he. "There is no hope ot his
nomination whatever." I llud among his
friends a strong feeliug for General
Gresharu, but they scarcely think they
cau nominate him. That will be the rea
son if they go to Harrison. I do not be
lieve that Blaine will bo nominated
either. He will be slaughtered as he has
been before, though he Is the strongest
man before the convention and the
people. N'Xt to him comes John Sher
man, but I do not thiuk he will be nom
This inorniug tho whole atmosphere Is
full of Blaine. You hear Bialne on the
corners of the streets and lu the hotel
corridors; and you hear him called every
thing from a patriot and statesman not
even seornid to George Washington to a
thluf aad a coiruptioniat. Ou the eve of
the great struggle which opens to-morrow
all eyes are llxod on the man from
Maine. You hear Arthur talked of, but it
Is only as a foil for Blaine something to
compare him with. Logan is lu the back
ground. No oue speaks of him at all,
except to wouder what sort of a game
he Is playing whether he wants the
Vice-Presidency or a Cabinet position,
and whether he has any chance for
Senator Thomod M. Boweu of Colorado,
has a room all to himself at the Palmer
House, but is seldom to be found In it.
He strolls about tlio rotunda day and
night, aud is ono of the quietest aud most
effective workers here. His delegation
is solid for Blaine, while he is au enthu
siast for Arthur. He only talks to oue
mau at a time and that man is oither a
Blaine, Logan or Sheroiau delegate. "I
haven't any time to talk to my friends,"
he said, lie is spending his money froeJy
in socially entertaining members who
have tx-eu sent here without instruc
tions. TICKKT9 GOING Cl
The Ohio delegation is iu a peck of
trouble. There are nearly 800 Ohioans
in the city, and every one of them wants
a seat iu the Convention. The delegation
is divided between Blaine and Sherman
and each faction wants the tickets dis
tributed among its friends. The result
Is that none of the tickets have yet been
given out. Some of the visitors from the
Buckeye State, who had thoir heart set
on witnessing tho proceedings of the con
vention, and who now see the slim
chance of having their wish gratiiled, of
fered Uils afternoon as high as fifty dol
lars for a ticket. Tickets are becoming
more valuabk every hour, and quite a
number of visitors have sold theirs for a
sum that will cover their expenses to
Last night I met the members of the
Taeillc coast delegation, w hich Is makin"
its headquarters at the Palmer House"
They were discussing the situation with
Senator M. 1). Foley, of Nevada, und
Crocker, of California, as chief spokes
men. Their feeling against Arthur
amounts to bitterness, principally on ac
count of his record on the Chinese ques
tion. "We will vote as a unit on all
questions," said Senator Foley, "and as
together we poll thirty-four votes wo
will count for something. There Is not
an Arthur man among us."
The scenes in the hotel corridors last
evening and this morning are intensely
Interesting. The crowd which surges
backwards and forwards, seemingly in au
aimless way, is heterogeneous In tho ex
treme One can look down from the open
galleries over the rotunda of the Palmer
House aud sec such men as Crocker of
California seemingly on terms of life
long friendship with politicians of tho
very lowest grade from large cities such
as New York, Cincinnati and St. Louis.
Statesmen and ward-bummers, million
aires and blackleg gamblers, confidence
men and civil service reformers mix and
mingle with no distinction. It Is thut
that "lite destliita of the nation" mi
swayed and lYeeldents made. Toward
the hotel bars thero are contiunout
streams of thirsty humanity and thi
crowd around them is always dense.
GOINU TO HEAVKK.
Dr. T. W. S. Stringer, of Mississippi,
ono of the most venerable looklug of th
110 colored delegates present, Is having
great deal of aUentlou paid him by bis
white brethren at the Grand raciflc. One
of the niuino enthusiast from the Pacini
Slope was Introdnced to him this morn
lug aud Inquired how his delegation was
"We ure all going to heaven, sir," ho
replied, with a good deal of earnest
ness. 'Then you're going to vote for Blaine;
of course," said th Californlan. '
"No, we arc not," said the doctor, "wo
will vote for Arthur on every ballot.'
Should we go for Blaine wo would go to
purgatory and not to heaven."
ALL AT SKA.
The reports which the papers here are
publishing concerning the outlook are
ludicrously contradictory. Tho Tribn
frays, for Instance, that the Blalno men
have everything to encourage them, aud
U devotes a dozen columns to alleged
facts to substantiate Its hypothesis. It
prints the delegates from the States of
Alabama, Arkausas, Florida, Georgia,
Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North
Carollua, South Carolina, Texas, Tennes
see aud Virginia, and calls them "the
bread a id butter brigade." Tho r
Ocean, ou the other hand, declares that
Arthur Is sweeping everything like a
tidal wave. Tho Time, which comes
nearer than any other city paper to glv
lug a true Idea of the status of affairs,
elves Its report tho very appropriate
heading, "At Sea."
Chicago, 111., Juue 2. Tho political
cauldron was seething within a couple ot
hours after daylight this morning. Many
delegates and workers were up all night
scheming and planulug various coups-de-etat,
which are promised for the next
twenty-four hours. The Blaine-Arthur
light increases iu bitterness every hour,
and a dead-lock in the convention uow
seeuis inevitable. The Blaine men have
become exasperated at the Importance
the New York business men lay upou their
backiug, and have arranged for another
delegation of New York business men to
arrive here this afternoon. The fight, if
possible, is hotter than that between
Grant aud Blaine four years ago, and
while the Arthur men do not claim
any new accessions, they declare
that they are holding their
own, and that own Is suiliolent to insure
success. Tho Logan men comrucucod
this morning tho distribution of tens
of thousands of copies of an address
of the members of tho American Free
School Association asking the Conven
tion to nominate Logan on account of
his proposition to give Government aid
to schools and for various other reasons.
The address is largely signed by citizens
of the various States.
Harrison, of Indiana, decided last
night not to go Into the convention.
Johu 11. Kolker has been telegraphed for
to act as his alternate.
The Indiana delegation will present
Harrison's name and give him their solid
supiwrt. They claim twenty votes from
New York and l'cnnsylvania. At mid
night tho Blaine managers decided that
Ju ige West, the blind orator of Ohio,
should nominate Blaiuo.
Au address Issued by the Virginia
straight-outs is being distributed whole

The Edmunds men are hard at work to
give emphatic denial to the rumor that
they will abandon Edmunds for Gresh
am. llalusha Grow, of Pennsylvania, still
takes the lead for temporary chairman.
The National Committee decides the ap
pointment this afternoon.
Hubbard, of Connecticut, issues the
following card: "The statement that
the Connecticut delegation is divided is
untrue. They are for Hawley. They
have so voted and will stick to it."
A small breeze Is reported from the
Minnesota delegation lu the shape of a
boom for General .Sherman. It Is claimed

All State delegations are in session this
morning In response to a call of the Na
tional Committee to elect vice-presidents,
secretaries and other officers of
Chicago, III., June 2. Trains arriving
iu Chicago this morning are heavily laden
with leaders who are working hard. The
Arthur managers admit that the Blaine
men secured important accessions yes
terday, but claim that they too were also
favored In that respect. The Arthur men
claim that General Logan's strength
comes from Federal olllee-holders who
are indebted to him for their places, and
argue that when the break comes they
will naturally go over to tho Arthur men.
Logan's friends continue to maintain that
they control sufllcleut strength to prevent
a nomination unless the situation
changes materially. This being the case
both sides are claiming the liliuois dele
gation, but appearance indicate that the
majority of Logan's forces will, when a
chauge becomes advisable, go over to
Biaiue. Thus far all is choa.s, and no
permanent combinations have been made.
Chicago, Ij.i.., Juue 2. The Sherman
men are booming their candidate to-day
wun greater energy than hitherto, aud
claim everything In tho event of a break.
They say tho two leading candidates will
kill each other.
Members of the Union League Club ar
rived strongly favor Blaine's nomination,
and will use their persuasive powers in
his behalf. The Edmunds men are re
ported as losing grouud, but will not ad
Chicago, III., June 2. The most
prominent figure among this morning's
arrivals was the famous Tom Ochiltree,
Mullen, from the Second Missouri Dis
trict, figures that Arthur has a plurality
of the Missouri delegation; Blain nextiu
popularity, and Logan having a few
votes. A Blaine worker from Kentucky claims
his delegation stands: Arthur, 15;
Blaine, 4 j anti-Arthur, 5. The Arthur
men say they will light to tho last for
Hon. James Devaux, delogate-at-large
from Georgia, says his State remains
solid for Arthur. There are no defec

Tennessee, says his State prefers Arthur
first and Sherman second.
Married at a Shotgun's Muzzle.
Mkxico, Mo., Juno 2. A wedding took
place in this city Saturday under some
what embarrassing circumstances, es
pecially to the groom, who was made to
realize that unless ho fulfilled certain mat
rimonial promises made over in Illinois
some time since to a comely young lady
of good family and standing in the com
munity in which the parties lived ,dlre and
speedy vengeance would be meted out to
him by the lady's brothers, who, with sev
eral other members of her family, had
followed him to Missouri, and were
duly on hand to see the knot
flmdy tied. The license Issued Satur
day morning shows the names of the con
tracting parties to be Lwwls Haydon and
Amy Kelly, both of Ilk County, 111. A
weddiug feast had been prepared In their
native State, but just prior to the hour
set for the nuptials ths prospective groom
skipped out aud came to WolhfvtUv, this
State, where he was overhauled by the
young girl's Irate brothors, and, it is sakl,
