Wo are promised a very novel enter
tainment to-morrow evening at the opera
house. "Tho Adamless Eden" being the
exfemely appropriate oamo ' selected for
tlio opera, and Inasmuch as the male sex
a:o religiously excluded from tho perform
ance (the stage, not the audience) it is safe
to say there will bo no mistakes or breuks
in the presentation of the play, The street
pirado by tho ladies of the company Satur
day afternoon is among the numerous at
tractions offered. It should take place and
doubtless will, before the "Wild West"
gatta ure open.
It is said "the minstrels always drawn
in Cairo," and the show last night was not
an fxceptioii, The house was fair and the
etitortaiiimiut above tho average. The
music was good, and the singng particu
larly fine. There was, of course, a few
thread-baro j"kes, but they were sand
wiched with so many good things that were
new and original that tho audience could
not complain or ohject to them. The fun
ny men were excruciatingly bo and tho
"flats" as usual, dreadfully "aogcy," but
the show can bo classo 1 among the best on
Wo learn from Goo. W. Corliss, who
came up on the City of Providence, that
Hickman, Ky., was partially destroyed by
fire Wednesday night. A grand ratifiVa
tion jubilee was in progress and the pro
cession was forming about 8 o'clock when
astray sky rocket set fire to the furniture
factory. From the factory the fire spread
to the railroad depot and warehouse, tele
graph office, lumber yards and dwelliugs
in the vicinity, aud was still burning aud
spreading when the steamer left there. The
whole town from the elevator up was in a
fairway to be destroyed.
Wild West to-morrow brings to Ciro
two men of world-wide reputation V. F.
Cody and Capt. Bogardus. Captain
Bagardus offers to bet a thous
and dollars to a hundred that no oue can
eat his record or defeat him in a match
with the shot gun. Tlie Captain's record
is an enviable one, lie having snot 100
birds in 100 successive shuts, and many
other performances of a like wonderful na
ture, lie has a family of four sons who
have all inherited his talent in shooting.
Hon. W. F. Cody, Buffilo Bill. J albeit
f such warlike fame, is in his social capac
ity "as mild a mannered man as ever cut
throat or scuttled Bhip." Mr. Cody
has been in turn a scout, Indian fighter,
army guide, buffalo hunter, legislator and
actor, and has won for himsnlf fame in ev
ery one of tho various occupations which
ho has pursued.
Blaine is not yet done claiming. He
dsscounts the Thichborn claimant. In his
last speech he claims that one-fifth of the
southern state's electoral vote belongs to
him because as it now stands the colored
men ot the south have no representation in
the electoral college. He might have gone
farther and Slid tho democrats of Illinois
and Ohio and other republican states, and
the republicans of New York, Indiana,
New Jersey and Connecticut have no rep
resentation in the electoral college. One
claim is about as reasonable as the other.
To read his speech one is forced to the
conclusion that ho is a worse man even
than the independent republican papers
pictured him during the campaign that
ho would not hesitate if it were in his pow
er, to revive all the dead and gone iseucsof
twenty years ago and plunge the country
into another civil war, if by doing so it
would benefit Blaine.
The Freo Trade Bugaboo.
A prominent business man of New York
hits tho nail on the head, when he said:
"Some of our merchants thouirht that if
Cleveland wure elected it Would be a hard
blow at them, but they are coming back to
their senses aud buiiuuinir to sea their
mistake. All this bugaboo about the tariff
amounts to nothing. For my part I think
business wou.d luve remained lust about
the same no matter who was elected. They
talk about the republicans fostering our
manufacturing industries. That is all well
and goo I. Give them all the credit they
want for it. But do you think that we bus
iness men are such asses as to believe the
talk about democratic success being equi
valent to commercial disaster. I believe
that more cotton will go to the N w Eng
land mills from the south during the
coming year than ever before, and after the
novelty of the change has worn off, there
will be a general feeling of confidence In
business circles; the fear of a change which
always actuate the timid and which has
operated in the interest of the republican
party so long, will result to the advantage
of the democratic administration, which, if
good, will, no doubt, be continued for a
long time. For my part, I expect to see
tho government of the country in the hands
of the democrats for at least a dozen years.
Now, with this feeling of confidence will
come a loosening of the money. Invest
ments will flourish, and there will bo a
stronger spirit of commercial activity. As
it is now, every man is holding on to his
money, afraid to put it out. In a few
months you will sco a change."
