You no doubt will bo ploased to learn
that Joseph Kobarts, formerly of Tiiic
MULLKTIN office, was elected yesterday
school director in school district number 6
of our city.
For tho past three years
our schools havo been cov-
erncd by it certain clique. Certain teach
ers must bo hired regardless of qualifica
tions. Coiiseotieutlv our achools beenmo
worthless. Enormous wages were paid lo
tho teachers. All books must bo bought
of certain parties. It went so far that a
child would not bo allowed to buv a slat
pencil outsido tho rlnir.
Joo announcod himsolf a candidate and
pledged himself to tho people that, if
elected, lio would bring to light some of
tho most Mtupendous frauds, which had
been practised by tho former diroctors.
Tho opposition brought out their old can
didate for ro-olecllon, who had been a
pliant tool and always ready to bo used
for any purpose whatever.
Tho penplo rallied. Tho contost raced
hot. Tho directors held open ono Jiour

S6mo Cairo mid Mound City gentlemen
met In St. Louis a lew days emeu and in

oach took what ho desired, and tlm Cairo
man who had extended tho Invitation then
laid down n dime l'or Ms own drink, an
lutiliiation that each 0110 should pay lor
his own. Soon alter, a Mound City man
proposed thu party should have a Mound
City treat. All hands took a drink; then
tho Mound City man, by way of settle
ment, rapped on the counter and said
"those were mine." Such Is tho differ
ence between thu people of thu two towns.

fill in his local aspirations having elunbed
to tho lofty position of mayor of Cairo,
has now tlxed hisongluoyo upon congress,
and has proo.urtid tho backing of .Mr.
Grant's man, Munn. Ho will go into tho
radical nominating convention with u
number of friends who understand how to
manage things, and hu has high hopes of
securing the nomination. His strung point
is, that nobody knows anything against
him, and that no republican candidate
who is known can hope to succeed at thu
polls. Which Is very truo.
Tho liberal republicans of Cairo
should show their hands without further
delay. If thoy mean business, now is the

Davis, a fuw days ago, rebuked Kuv. Mr.
Shores for being in company with deino

such companionship is moru obnoxious to
thu charge of wickedness, than thu habit
into which the Carbondale sidu of thu
Cairo Davis has fallen of carrying a mar
ket basket on Sunday and buying victuals
on tho Lord's day I "This man," said Mr
Shores to tu, "professes to hu 11 christian'
and maybe ho Is. I don't say anything on
that matter; but I do say, If he was it
member of my church I would turn him
uut quicker than a fly will drop on molas

Thoro is no doubt that Mr. Davis, on his
Carbondale side, is a sinner All the
religion ho has is on his Cairo ilda, and
that Is patent.
