The 50 cents on the $100 valuation to
be vot;d to-day will produce on last year's
baBia between seven and eight thousand
dollars. This niony will all be required
to repair the court house, yard and jail.
Every citizen of Cairo is interested in this.
The tumble down condition of the court
house is a disgrace to the city. The yard
is a commons, the cornice is rotting and
falling off, the steps are broken down, the
jail cells rotting and giving way and the
building is going to the dogs generally.
Mr. Chas. Howard, who was manager
of the Theatre Comique last season, has
bought out Messrs. Catlott & Shelton and
next Monday will tako full charge of that
pleasant plica ot amuiement. Tho retiring
managers have given a good, quiet, orderly
show that has proved satisfactory to their
patrons in every respect. Mr. Howard is a
clever affable gentleman and one of the
very best delineators of the old plantition
darkey on tho American stage. Ho is also
possessed of good managerial and executive
ability and in his hands the Theatre
Comique is bound to be a success.
We believe there are independent re
publicans and democrats enough in the
city of Cairo who do not believe in bring
ing politics into local elections to send Ir
vin, Leek and Fitzgerald into the county
with a telling majority. There are demo
crats with a grievance hero as everywhere
else, who will run with the republican ma
chine and scratch the independent, ticket.
There are also republicans who say openly
they would vote for Jim Orange if he was
nominated, but they are a minority. The
sensible men of the party are not to be de
ceived j they know a gooa man and will
voto to keep him in office.
"The Ancients" held their meeting
last Saturday evening and cut tho "gordian

In fact parliamentary rules were thorough

figuratively speaking, took him by the nap
of his figurative neck with one hand while
the other grasped him by tho figurative
part that gives the beat levorage, and burl

of tho sixth round the jolly president
came up considerably blown but victorios
and smiling. "Parliamentary rules" with
Cushings' manual haviog boon banished
the meeting now had plain sailing and sat
down on all past legislation that failed to
suit the majority present. The two-third
majority of election to membership will
prevail, and as the club is now full, wo say

one, two or three dessenting voices reject

At 3 o'clock Madison Square was a vast

practically impenetrable, and at 3:30
o'clock when Gov. Cleveland started from
the Hoffman House accompanied by mem
bers of his staff and Senator A. P. Gorman,
the police bad great difficulty in clearing
a way to thp reviewing stand. It took 20
minutes to pass from tho hotel to the stand
although the distance is not more than 400
leet. The governor reached the stand just
as the head of the procession appeared. The
governor immediately took his place and
with uncovered head bowed in response to
the salute of Grand Marshal Woodward.
This was exactly at ten minutes before 4

wild cheers until ten minutes after 8
o'clock, when the procession ended.
Gov. Cleveland left tho reviewing - stand
at 5 minutes of 8, went immediately to the
Hoffman House, eat a hasty lunch, tak

the reviewing stand to witness the night
parade. He arrived there just as the head
of the procession reached there. At that
time Broadway and Fifth avenues were a
blaze of red flro and hundreds of sky rock

eye could reach there was a vast mass of
men bearing torches marching in close or

midnight the procession was still passing
the reviewing point and it was 2 o'clock in
the morning beforo the Inst division went
by. This makes a continuous parade up
Fifth avenue, with a break of only 25 min

New Youk, Nov. 3.-The following dis
patch has been sent from national demo
cratic headquarters to the chairman of each
democratic stato committee:
"New York, Nov. 2.-0ur attention has
boon called to a forged telegram purport
ing to have been sent by the chairman of
this committee saying that tho result of the
presidential election depended upon the
voto of Ohio. On tho contrary this com
mitteo has never claimed or relied upon
the vote of Ohio, and if that voto bo cant

It will only go to swell the majority of
electoral votes for our candidates. Our ad
vices from all quarters are entirely satlsfac-
lory and our opponents forced to tbo de

concentrate npou these poiuts those re
sources of power, patronage and corruption
upoa which they have utihlushincly pro.
claimed tln.'ir reliance. The verdict of the
voters of the United States cannot be
bought. The great popular demonstrations
iu favor of Cleveland and Hendricks have
surpasso! till expectation and precedence.

"The Duke of Massac."
"English" talk to a large extent has
ruled in this campaign. Transparencies
have been carried in the republican torch
light processions: "We don't Want Eng
lish Rule"; "No English Candidates for
Us"; "Down with the Nobility," etc., and
yet the republicans of this congressional
district are shouting themselves hoarse
over a scion of England whose blood is
taiotod with hereditary hatred and super
cellious contempt for the man who works
for wages, for the'mechanic who plans and
builds, and for the farmer who tills tho
soil. One whose motto is, self, first, last
and all the time. The great I am, in his
own opinion, sometimes at home, some
times in congress, but mostly at watering
places and summer 'resorts. Tho working
men of Cairo have never rightly understood
why the representative in congress from
this end of the state chould show so little
inclination to attend to duty, and so great
a desire to earn his $5,000 a year posing at
Saratoga. It becomes our duty to explai n,
and wo will do it regretfully, that it is tho
blood. It comes from the old English
house of "Thomas." Among the treasures
of "The Duke of Massac," as CapUin
Thomas is called among his neighbors, ss
we are informed by one of them, in Metrop
olis there is nothing that the captain pre
serves more carefully or takes greater pride
in displaying than the "patont"given under
the royal band of an English King that
proves his claim of lineal descent from the
Eoglish Nobility. It may bo a small capi
tal, but in hlsmind, the captain does an
immense business on it. It is that which
makos him bolievo "A nigger is as good as
a democrat" but not so good as a white re
publican, and that no man, democrat or
republican, whito or black, living or dead,
is as good as "Lord" John R. Thomas. He
a not to blame for it. It is in the blood.

J. II. Wallack is one of the best sensa

he played at the old theatre to delighted

remember. Among the main attractions
of the melo-drama are two educated trick
horses, whose appearanco upon the stage
