On Monday, August l!Hh, 1872, J, ISaln
bridge Taylor was tho victim of tun
stroke which caused hit death between
thu hour of llvo and six o'clock in the
afternoon of that day. Ills lllnes wa of
very short duration having only grown
serious at about five o'clock, hi death oc
curring beforo tlx. Mr. Taylor was born
In the city of Philadelphia, May Ith, IM'J,
and cntiio to this city in the year IBM,
with his father, Col. .S. Staats Taylor, who
at that time becamo the agent of tho
Cairo City Property Company. The de
ceased lived In Cairn more than half
his life and wot well known to nearly
every man, woman and child in it, nnd
desorvedly popular with nil. Ho was
potseticd of n warm heart, kind manner,
and those genial qualltie which endear a
man to his own family and attach to him j
ho hearts of all with whom he comes In
contact. At his deceaso Mr. Iaylor was
serving hi third term ut city treasurer.
At hit first election, ho had a majority of
several hundred over bis competitor at
tho second, his majority was larger than
any candidate ever received at any previ
ous election In the city, and when ho ran
tho third and last time, he had no compet
itor and was elected by the entire vote of
thecltv. The fact is a speaking evidenco
of his popularity as a citizen and his cfli
ciency a an officer. He was a member of
the order of Odd Kellowt, of the Hough
ana KeRdy Fire company and of the His-
k undj Xllel0 ,oci'ete Ml,i tlle city
government passed resolution of respect
to his memory.
Mr. Taylor wat buried at Beech Grove
cemetery on Wednesday tho 2 1st Inst.
His funeral took place from his late
resldcnco on Washington avenue, nnd
was the lnrgest ever known in this city.
The eocietie to which he belonged at
tended the funeral of their late fellow
member, In full uniform and wearing the
usual badges of mourning, and were ac
companied, by invitation, by thn Hiber

uniform. 1 he funeral procession cm-
braced, flrtt, the hearse followed by the
Fellows, Hough and Heady fire company,

Government, citizens. Tho funeral cor
trgr arrived ut the gravo nt 12 in. Tho
face-plate was removed from tho coffin
and tho friondt of the decoase permitted
to take a last look at bit feature before
tbo body was lowerod into its final ret
ing pluce. Many eyes wero moistened
with the team of regret. The impressive
lecture and prayer of tbo OJd Fellows' bu
rial ervlco were then read by brother C.
Limo of that order. Ho was followed by
the Hev. F. L. Thomson of tho Methodist
The cotlln was lowored into tho gravo
and the "clods of the valley'' heaped upon
it, their hollow sound finding a sorrowful
and dreary echo in tho heaits of the many
friends gathered nround friends with
whom tho memory of "Bain" will linger as
ong as lifo lasts. Of tho so suddenly and
to deeply bereaved wife and family wo
will not speak. Their grief U sacred, and
its depth unci genuineness attest tho irre

In tho afternoon tho speaking began,
Hon. Win. J. Allen leading oil'. Wo
need not say tho speech was nn able
etlbrt ; Mr. Allen makes no indifferent
speeches ; but, on this occasion, ho sur
prised oven his most ardent admirers.
Ilis exordium wax happy, nnd lie smoothly
pussed into n discussion of the present
anomalous condition of politics, eulogiz
ing thu Liberal movement nnd its candi
dates 1. ml asserting his belief that in the
success of this coursu the best interests of
the Itopubllu are involved. This subject
disposed of, Mr. Allon took up tho record
of tho present administration j and, It is
unnecessary to say, denounced it in titling
terms, nnd not in tho hacknied torms of tbo
ordinary stump orators, but 111 an orig
inal manner blondlng with his denuncia
tions it voln of eloquence that captivated
his hearers nnd drew from them
round nftor round of applause.
Concerning tho speech of Mr. Wall
wo need say nothing. It was nil his
Irlonds expected a close discussion of tho
Issues of the day, cntortnining as it was
instructive, But unfortunatoly his speech
wns short. Ho did not arrive until a Into
