Grandest Demonstration Ever
Witnessed in Cairo.
Thousands Flock to See and
Hear the Next Governor
HON. CARTER HARRISON
Immense Procession, Decorations, Il
luminations, Booming: Cannons,
For some time expectation lias run high
concerning the extensively advertised jubi
leo, which came off "in all its entirely'' in
this city yesterday and last night.
The fun actually began Wednesday
night. lion. Carter Harrison, accompanied
by Hon. H. W. Townshend, Hon. F. M.
Youngblood, Hon. F. E. Albright end
several other leading men whose names we
failed to learn, came in on the Wabash
road, arriving at about 11 o'clock. The re
ception committee boarded the train at
Twentieth street, and rode down to the
Union depot, whero a large concourse had
gathered, including the cornet band. Re
pairing to The Halliday, Mr. Harrison, who
was much fatigued, retired, and short
speeches were made, to the assembled citi
zens by Messrs. Townchend, Albright and
Early yesterday morning the size of the
day was apparent. Bunting flew from
every flag pole in the city. The red,
white and bluo mot the eye at every tour,
and the familiar faces of Cleveland and
Hendricks were seen in windows, on walls,
awnings everywhere. Every train and
every boat brought eager and expectant
visitors to swell the enormous crowd.
At 2 o'clock the opera bouse was filled
to its utmost capacity, and the ball was
opened with & rousing speech by Hon. It.
W. Townshend which received the closest
attention, and evoked frequent and pro
Mr. Townshend was followed by Hon.
F. M. Youngblood, whose speech wa) also
warmly and appreciatively received.
But not until night did the demonstra
tion assume its full and mastodonic propor
tions. Everywhere hung Chinese lanterns,
and stores and private houses were brilliant
ly illuminated. Rockets and other fire
works blazed in many different places, the
caution boomed, and the streets were filled
with an eager, intense throng of enthusias
tic and jubilant men and women.
At 7 o'clock the various organizations
began forming in line, and in a short time'
the great sinuous column of torch-bearers,
with two brass bands, transparencies, ban
ners, etc., began moving through the prin
cipal streets. Excitement ran high, but
everything was conducted in an orderly and
satisfactory manner that must be very
gratifying to those having the matter in
charge. Den; throngs of citizens gathered
on the walks and crossings to witness the
parade, and cheers and huzzas resounded
everywhere as the long, brilliant column
passed over line of march. At a low esti
mate there were fully one thousand torch
bearers on foot, besides a hundred horse
men and a large number of buggies and
The transparencies were numerous and
appropriate. Among them we noticed the
following: "Cleveland and Reform; Hen
dricks for Revenge; No Moro8to 7; Our
Carter; Ring Rule Has Had its Day; What
Fools we Mortals Be- Oladney, Blaine and

streets in town the procession marched
,; firouna tne lenm street music stand and
, broke ranki. Tbe music stand was pro
' fusely decorated and brightly illuminated
' Among the many distinguished gentle
. men on the stand we noticed Floa. Wm
Harttoll, ex-member of congress; Geo. Win
. B. Anderson, of Mount Vernon; Hon.
' i jn. i ouuguioou, vcmocraiic csuuiuait tor
; ' elector from the 10th district; Hon. P, V.

M, Davi, Democratic nominee for repre
fjatutA'iS from the .60th district J Hon. N.
It. Casey, of Mound City; Hon. P. E. Al
bright; lion. John W. Burton, of William
ion nunty, Democratic candidate for
clerk of the appellate court, and others,
Ai soon aa possible, Judge Green, of
this city, cnllod the meeting to order, -and
in a few well-chosen words introduced to
the vast throng the next governor of Illi
nois, Hon. Carter Harrison.
Mr. Harrison proceeded to don a sack
coat and skull cap, and then "went in."
He first picked up James 0. Blaine- and
held the tattooed man up before the groat
crowd, while bo proceeded to remove the
whitewash from that distinguished and
monumental miss of magnetism and cor
ruption. The history of the two great par
tics was haBtily but carefully presented, and
in his inimitable manner, ho carried tils
hearers along with him, aa he showed, by
citing well-known matters of history, the
rottenness and repulsivencBs of the Repub
lican party, and the needed reforms which
wilt follow Democratic success. The
speech was a grand one, and not only made
the faithful more determined in their res
olution to down the g. o. p. (which
should mean "grand old phrau'i"), but it
quickened into new life the courage of the
few who have grown despondent, and gave
tbetn courage to try it once more, confident
that next month's battle will result in a
signal victory for public honesty, purity
and reform over public rascality, jobbery,
bribery and corruption,
Gen. Win. B. Anderson followed Mr.
Harrison in a short, but well-timed speech,
which lack of space alone prevents our
noticing at some length.
Taken as a whole, the jubilee and jolli
fication was a complete and glittering suc
cess, and the immense turnout and un
bounded cntBusiasm shows that Southern
Illinois will do her whole duty nobly in
the great battle now so close at hand.

Memphis Reds will strive hard to recover

A wise Quakeress used to say, in her
sermons, that thero were thrco follies of
men which always amnzid her. The first
was their climbing trees to shako fruit
down, whon, if they only waited a littlo it
would fall of its own accord; the second
was that they should go to war to kill each
other, when, if tbey but waited, they would
all die naturally; and the third was thai
they should run after women, which, if
they would not do, tho women would bo
sure to run after them.
-Tns Bollktik'i article on the state's
attorneyship, published in Tuesday's pa
per, has attracted some attention, and a
little criticism. The position wo took in
that sitiriii was that the machine politi
cians had been tried aud found wanting as
makers of a competent and reliable officer;
that this being tho case, the people propos
ed to take the matter in their owo bands
this year. Tho outfit that elected a Dam
run is the sami set that now seeks to ele
vate a briefless and untried young barris
ter to this highly responsible position. The
most available, competent and worthy man
whom tho pooplo havo an opportunity to
placo In this office this year is Angus
Leek, who is tunning on Lis merits as a
man, a citizen and an officer who has been
trie ), and whose pist history will bear in
vestigation. Since our first article was
written, Mr. Hendricks has announced as
an independent candidate for tho office in
question. The Bulletin has no fight to
make on Mr. Hendricks. Ho knows and
every one else knows, that them can be but
one result should he obtain any consider
able following. The independent voters
would divide their strength between him
and Mr. Leek, and thus insure the election
of the machine-made candidate, W. N.
Butler. Mr. Hendricks may honestly be
lieve that ho otands some show of flection.
If sn, he is alone in hs opinion; while
many are of the belief that he does not
hope to be dieted, and is mere'y running
as a kind of local Ben Butler, in the inter
est of the political machine candidate, Mr.
Butler. However, we believo that the peo
ple will see this matter in its true, light,
and unite their strength so efleclively that
the machine will not again soon import a
fledgling carpet-bagger fur the sole pur
pose of having a naum to put on their
ticket as a candidate.
The wedding of Mr. J. A. Naugle and
Miss Fannie Lu B.rclr.y at the M. E.
church in this city yesterday was an ele
gant though unostentatious affair. Invita
tions had been issued, and long before the
hour for the ceremony had anived, the
church was filled with invited guests. Those
who arrived euiy did not regret it, how
ever, as they were most acceptably enter
tained by Mrs. George Parsons, who
prc3id:;d at the organ with her accustomed
skill and grace. The organ and altar were
hnndsomcly decorated. Over tho former
stretched a beautiful motto, in white let
ters on a green scroll, "God Bless this
Union." From the top of the organ hung a
large evergreen horse-shoe with the narao
"Fannio in white in the center. Suspended
in front of the altar was a largo ox yoke,
formed of evergreens, and stuldoi with
blossoms; in one bow appeared tho initial
"N." and in the other, "B."' On either side
stood large stands filled with raro plants,
buds, blossoms and vines, the whole form
ing a most pleasing viow, and reflecting
much credit upon Mrs. E. C. Ford, to
whose good taste and skilful hands tho
credit of the decoration is due.
At 12 o'clock, high noon, thd bridal par
ty arrived in carriage, tho wedding march
burBt forth, and the party walked slowly up
the left aisle. Messrs. Harry nugh29, Will
Korsmcyer, E i Rsno and Fred Allen acted
as ushers, and preceded tho party as they
entered the church. Next came Miss
Ilattie McKeo, bridesmaid, and Mr. E. E.
Naugle, gronmstnvi, brother of tho groom.
Last, but not leas', followed Miss Fannie
Lu Barclay and Mr. J. A. Naugle. As the
party reached the altar, tho mus'c of the
organ changed from the march to a sweet,
subdued harmony which was continuod
throughout tho ceremony, which was per
formed in a most impressive and acceptable
manner by tho Rev. J. A. Scarrit, lato
pastor of the M. E. church in this city.
Tho responses camo clear and distinct.
The bride who is one of Cairo's swrctest
and fairest daughters, looked very lovely,
in a rich brocaded dress with handsome
satin oversktrt and trimmings of plain
fawn-colored satin. The bonnot was made
of the same material as the dresn, with
garnet velvet fucings. The bridesmaid
sustained her usual dignified appearance in
an elegant dark brown silk dress with trim
mings of brown velvet, a bonnet of gold
laco with brown velvet trimmings. Tho
ornaments of both the bride and brides
maid were natural flowers. Tho gentle
men wcro all attired in tho regulation
black with white vests and gloves to mutch
tho trimmings of tho bride's dress.
After tho service, the party and relatives
returned to tho residence of P. W. Barclay,
where, after congratulations were over,
they partook of tho wedding dinner. Tho
presents were numerous aud elegant; two
particulary appropriate being a handsomo
silver tea service from tho church, and a
large and richly bound family Bible from
the bride's Sabbath school class.
The bride and groom left in the after
noon for Indianapolis, Ind., whoio thoy
will visit for a short timo. From thero
they will go to Pedras Negras, Hew Mexico,
where they will mako their future homo.
They will probably atop in Cairo a few
days on their return trip.
