Veslerday mornhg wo published a call
uron Mr. Lunsden to becomo n candl
datu for re-election, to which ho gives a
responso this morning, ilu consents to
run, nnd ll Is now tho duty of his friends
to sco that lils election is made sure.
Squire Shannony snys wo reported his
position on the police Incorrectly. He
wishes to say ho did not chargo them all
with incll'eciency, but did say some of them
wcro d d frauds. In this amended as
sertlon wo ngrco with him. They aro
int is to say, one-well, say two' of them
nro frauds of that very kind.
THE OLD TICKET.
If wo would have pcaco In tho family,
nnd tho affairs of tho city admlnlstored
for tho best Interest of the public, we will
put up tho Citliton's Ticket of last year
from A to Z Lnnsdcn, Howlcy, Taylor,
I'ope, Cain, nldermen and select council
men, and re-elect it. Hasn't tho adminis
tration been ctllcicnt? nnd doesn't tho old
thing work well now? Gentlemen, stop
up to tho counter nnd lei us "repeat." So
s.iy the coalesccrs.
This gentleman is a candidate for alder-
mnn In tlio second ward a distinctly pro
nounced Independent candidate. If elec
ted ho proposes to labor for certain very
much needed reforms in tho way of open
ing sewers, laying down street crossings,
cleanini: tho cltv tlioroutrhf.ites, etc. He
says tho second ward has been neglected
and that if ho wcro 0110 of its rcprescnta'
tlon in tho city council ho should insist
upon Its obtaining Its share of attention
nOBEHTSON, A1. UN.
Mr. W. H. Robertson, who Is a candi
date for city marshal, says ho has no do
siro to run for the olllce, but so many of the
best citizens have persistently urged him
to do so. that to bo rid
of tho nnnovonco of their per
slstency, ho has reluctantly consented
toinako tho race. He Is to bo pitied. It
is u shame that bo should bo dragged from
tlio privacy ho bo much desires and wo
aro bold to dcclaru the "best citizens"
who liavo dono this thing should bo
nthaind of themselves. AVo havo seen
many of thocllizous who nro clntscd under
tho head of "host," and havo charged
them with tlio otfenio complained of by
Rcbertson, but wo havo not found ono who
hni not declared his innocenco and
assorted that ho had no Intention
whatoYcr of doing nnylhiug that might
oven tend lodrlvo Mr. Robertson Into any
office Rut, of coiir.e, at lonst live hun
dred (that's tho way R. puts it) of tlio
best citizons havo urged him to clean out
Cain, and ho's going to do it if ho can
but. can ho? If ho does it will ho after
ho has bought tho support of a good many
citizens not classed among tho best , and,
o far ns our knowloJgo of his purchasing
ability goes, ho is a failure.

would bo a stronger tiinn thnn Col. Tay
lor in it contest for tho mayoralty. AVo
venture to say, Mr. Lnndcn himself does
not believe this. Tho truth Is (and Mr,
Lansden is well aware of tho fact) Mr
Lnnsdcn is 6trong becauso ho has frionds
liku Col. Taylor to advocate his claims.
Lust year tlio struggle for tlio olllco was
desperate, and .Mr. Lansden, without his
knowledgo, was put up as tho reprcsenta
tlon of thu men who wished a chniigo of
administration in thu municipal n flairs of
Cairo, nnd thoso men, almost without his
knowledge certainly without truobllng
mm with tlio details ot tlio canvass se
cured his triumphant election. Among
tho most active of his friends, and
the man whn did tlio most
work not tho noisy work of thu turbulent
fellows who infest groceries nndplny pitch
and talk olcctlon during our chnrtcr can
vasts, but tho work that counted paid-
got voters to como to the polls and voto
right was Col. Taylor. And, now, if ho
wished to occupy tlio mayor's ofllce, ho
could beat Lnnsdcn out of sight or any
other man. Rut that ho will
not bo n candldato wo havo
been informed by rollablo authority. AVo
wish ho would, so that wo might havo tho
pleusuro of teaching tho men who aro al
ways croaking "Taylor, " llko blrJa of
evil omen on infernally disagreeable nights
that thoy know littln about tlio real pub
lic sentiment of Cairo and have boon dc
eelved by tho pestiferous outgivings of
their own llttlo cotcrio of sorehoads.
Somo of our republican friends (nnd bo
it known wo aro sorry to learn this) assort
that thoy were cheated in tho election hist
year, inasmuch ns republicans wero elected
for tho short tcrms,and In somo mysterious
way domocrnts slipped into tlio long
torins. They are mistakon. They wero
not cheated. They wore dealt with very
librully. Horo aro tho facts: Take the
Helect council. On tho 10th of March lust
the terms of threo select councllmen ex
pired. AVilliamson, from tho city at large
went out, nnd Capt. Halliday was nomi
nated to fill his place. O'Callahan of tho
third ward went out, nnd Col. AVood was
put Into his place. Jorgcnson, or the
fourth ward, went out, and Col. Taylor
was nominated as his successor. Hero wo
lmvo two democrats to ono republican.
True, but thcro woro threo other vacan
cies in tho council to bo filled. Moyors,
democrnt, of tho flrtt ward, had moved
into tho second wnrd and his soat wns va
cant j Uarclay, democrat, of tho second
ward, had resigned, und Dr. Arter, (not a
ropubllcan an Independent), had
also resigned leaving a Va
cancy from tho city at large. AVhat did
tho domocrnts do? Theyallowod tho re
publicans to put Schuh, a republican, into

to say that by tho first of August this
