next Monday and Tuesday evenings. This
is a strong company, tho only one present

none of tho local scenery. They will
doubtless have big houses both nights.
What might have been a serious acci
dent occurred on the Texas narrow gauge
yesterday afternoon, near Bird's Point.
A passenger train overtook a freight train in
coming around a curve, and dashed into the
caboose, completely demolishing it. Tho
front end of tho engine was knocked in and
tho boiler was instantly emptied of steam
and water. No -.me was injured except the
fireman, and he but slightly.
Edward O'Neal, a white man, was
brought before Justice Robinson yesterday,
charged with attempted larceny. Monday
night O'Neal picked up a "dummy" in
front of M. B. Sadler's store, and carrying
it into a hall, proceeded to rob tho helpless
thing of coat and vest, lie was discovered
in the act and fled, but was caught vester
day morning. Justice Robinson held him
for trial in tho sum of $200 and ho was sent
to jail in default.
Our table is graced this morning with
new book entitled, "A Beautiful Bird
Without a 1'ame," from the gifted pen of
Miss Belle, Peterson, aud presented by the
talented authoress in parson. Tho book is
well bound volume of 324 pages, of
handsomo mechanical appearance, and with
a fine oil picture of the authoress as a
frontispiece. Th opening chapter is
gracefully even poetically written, and
gives promise of a very interesting and
readable book. Miss Peterson is in our
city for the purpose of selling her book.
The reading; public will doubtless appreci
ate her mission and encourage it.
A special dispatch from New York
says, and vto print it for the benefit of our
Irish readers who are laboring under the
impression that Blaine is friendly to them:
"Daniel McSweency, the Irish-American
who was imprisoned in Ireland for ten
mouths as a snspect, arrived hero Sunday
on tho steamer Aurania, and a party of
Irish-Americans went dowu the bay in a
tug to meet him. "I come over here vol
untarily," he said to-night, "to tell my
countrymen bow Blainn treated mo when I
was locked up in an Irish jail. Whilo I
was in j iil insult after insult was heaped
upon me, all because it was James O.
Blaine's policy to turn his back on the ap
peals of Irish-Americans. The Irish-Americans
should know this and act accordingly.
When Mr. Frelinghuysen went into office
he took my case at once, and on August 10
last, the prison doors were opened aud I
Tn the illustrated history of Alexander,
Union and Pulanki counties, published in
1883, many old citizens of Cairo are men
tioned, among whom we notice a brief
sketch of Leu O. Faxon, who was a promi
nent newspaper man on the Cairo Times,
published hero in 1853. In tho brief
sketch of Faxon tho writer says that A.
Ihckcr did the heavy woik on the Times
aj editor-in-chief, and Len, with Ins long-,
pointed, sharp stick, siirrod up tho nni
mals. The paper was a weekly. Hacker
had good talents but was not a journalist.
He was a politician and a lawyer, and soon
turned from the newspaper business to his
favorite pursuit. On the other hand jour
nalism was as natural to Faxon as water to
a duck, and the only thing that prevented
him from attaining tho highest mark in
journalism was his social qualities. He
was a fellow of infinite jest and wielded
sharp and vigorous pen; but as to using it
ho preferred to bo with the boys. He final
ly left Cairo and settled in Paducah, whero
he made himself the master bantam of his
profession. He dropped tho Faber for
awhile, but finding that his forte, ho went
buck to his first love and is now the chief
editor of the Daily News in Paducah.
Vohad hoped to give tho readers of
Tint Bn.i.Ki IN something definite from1
Ohio this morning, but up to the hour of
going to press (2 a. m.) there is nothing but
guess woik on the result of yesterday's elec
tion in tho Buckeye State. Numerous
scattering telegrams wero received last
ninht, some indicating ono thing and soino
another. One dispatch from Cincinnati,
staled that at 0 o'clock tho Reiiubllmina
wero claiming tho htato by from 15,000 to
17,000. If this is as hitrh ns they dared
hope at tha. hour, it is r virtual defeat, for
tho Republican majority four years ago wis
34,227, and to gain any prcHtige on yester
day's election they must have carried tho
ttate by over 25,000. Many pre cincts show
considerable Democratic gains. No Re
publican majority of less thaa 25,000 will
make Oh'o a positively Blaine s'.alo. With
any amuiier .minority In a total vote of
B00.0OO or upward, DUine's manners will
Mill havo to fight, and fight hard, for Ohio,
instead of being safe In trusting it alone
and concentrating all Hi
force on New York. Ii the li-publlcans
have carried Ohio it is nothing for them to
grow very hilarious over, while if they
have carried it by only a small majority, it
is a matter of much concern to them. As
has been admitted right along, the Repub
licami had to curry Ohio, the Democrats
West Virginia, which some of the most
sanguino Blaineites have been predicting
would go R publican yesterday baa prob'
ably gone Democratic by 7,000 fo 8,000.
At Wbt dispatches to that effect were re
ceived last night, while nothing to the con
trary was heard.
The State's Attorneyship.
The pcoplo of Alexander county have
two candidates from whom to choose a
state's attorney at the approaching election.
We pay two, tor Mr. George Hendricks is
practically out of.tho race. His announce
ment was handed to the editor of TiieBui,
letin and then withdrawn before it appear
ed in print. This leaves tho race between
W. N. Butler, the machine nomiuee, and
Angus Lock, the independent candidate.
Mr. Butler, as a nun, is a vciy nice and
worthy person, and when, to his natural
good qualities, study and experience are
added in tho future, he may some day be
fitted for the very important ' position to
which he now rather presumptuously as
pires. The office of state's attorney is one
requiring not only talent, but experience.
The first Mr. Butler may have, the Recond
ho certainly cannot claim. He has barely
been admitted to the bar, and while the of
fice would no doubt be of valuable assist
ance to him in the acquirement of needed
knowledge in his profession, tho people of
Alexander county are hardly prepared to
subordinate the true put poses of the office
and make it a training school fur aspiring
young barristers. The ctFice is a salaried
one, and its duties are numerous and re
sponsible. The man who holds the office should be
a good lawyer, o;ic whose practice is such
as to warrant the belief that ho is so re
garded by the community in general, and
at the same time he must bo a citizen who
is known tJ be honorable and upright in
all his dealings.
Such a man is Mr. Leek, who is is- run
ning not as 1 1 in impersonation oi some
domineering political ring, but as an inde
pendent man, relying solely for 'support
upon his past record as an officer and his
reputation as a 'man and citizen.
Mr. Dirnron was elected by tho same
machinery that now seeks to elevate Mr.
Butler to the (fli:o of BUtc's attorney.
Damrou's history is public property.
When he had fled to avoid disastrous in
vestigation, Mr. Leek was appointed to fill
the vacancy, and ho has done so in the
most acceptable manner. Ho should be
elected to the office in which ho has been
tried and found capable. It is too high an
office to be prostituted for tho mere per
sonal gratification of a few local political
bo3ics, and tho pooplo of Alexander county
owe it to themselves, to their county, and to
the cause of honest, upright and capable
administration of public affairs to see that
he Is elected by a large majority.
The machine has been tried as a mtke'r
of state's attorney. The people will try
their hand this year.
