Cairo, Illinois, rVbrunrj 4, 189.
John II. CUrly, Cairo, IIIIoom
Dear Sir: AVhen I sufTcrcd rhy name to bo
used in connection with tho mayoralty, I did
not appreciate tho excitement and angry feel
ing it would produco in certain quarters. I
find that tho same disgraceful corruption and
fraud that governed tho last primary oloctlon
is to prevail in this.
I would therefore suggest that, for the sako
of common decency, something should be done
to avert tho shameful nnd disgusting repeti
tion of last winter's experience.
You aro tho candidate of n certain combi
nation, which havo ever been my avowed en
emies, who wield u powerful nnd controlling
influonco over the destinies of our little city,
and which, in my opinion, has blighted its
prospects of future prosperity, and which has
reduced it to itn present humble condition.
These men havo tho money and power to
crush any one man that may get in their way,
or who may express himtelf in opposition to
their peculiar views of city inftnagomcnt. As
I never was proverbial for discretion about
speaking my mind, I have, In consequence,
incurred.their sovereign diiplc.isuro, nnd there
is no man in Cairo they so specially detiro to
keep out Of the office as myself.
Now, without egotism, I think I may say
that I have as many warm friends in the
democratic party of Cairo as yourself, who aro
anxious to support me for mayor, and whoso
politics only differ from yours in matters of
city government, and honestly differ. Yor
the purpoe, then, of producing harmony and
unity In the party, for the welfare of which
vou h&vn nlw&vi einrwauvi n tnnrli nnxietv.
1 would suggest the propriety of each of us
withdrawing (torn the canvass, and let tho
democracy select better and more suitable
men men who can unite instead of dUtruct
tho party. Then there will be n inrc thing
on retaining our old political position, that is
if you aro sincere in your expressed desire to
muV.o this olection a party issue. In the pres
ent state of affairs, it is my humblo opinion
that neither of us can control the party in
this matter; they are too intelligent to sub
mit to tho party lath, to subserve tho private
ends of ony chis-s of men. "We are both too
poor to spend any money of our own in the
canvass, and the extravagant outlay, which I
understand is contemplated, might possibly
attach disagrueablo suspicions of dishonorable'
Whether you agree to this or not you aro
authorized to withdraw my namo from the
contest from this date, and I beg for the har
mony of the party that you do the same.
"I.: us have peaco." Thomas Wilsok.
Mr. Olrl) ' Itcil'.
Ottlceof the Kvcnint Ilullrtin,
Cairo, III., February , 13.
Thomas U'ilon, K., Cairo, Illinoi
Dtnr Sir t Your favor of this instant, In
relation to tho ending contest for mayor of
Cairo, demands from me a resume which I
hopo may prove satisfactory to you und-our
friends, and have a tendency to allay tho an
gry feelings which have evidently taken pos
session of you and driven out of its place your
After remarking that you suffered your
name to bo uiod in connection with tho may
oralty without a proper appreciation of the
excitement and angry feeling its use would
produce In what you call "certain quarters,"
"I llnd that tho samo disagraceful corrup
tion and fraud that governed tho last primary
election is to provau in tms.
That your candidacy created any anger in
"certain'' or other quarters I had no iuforma
ticn until I learned it from your letter. To
me tho fact seemed apparent, that the sugges
tion of your mime did not in tho least disturb
tha placidity of the public mind. Hut bo this
us it may, I cannot see why tho belief that
vour candidacy has been tho occasion of ex
citement and anger should Induce you to ay
that corruption and fraud governed the last
primary election, and will govern the one en
suing. I do not beliovo there will bo any
corruption and fraud in the coming primary
olection, and I am profoundly ignorant of the
fact, if tho citizens who opposed you last year,
wore guilty of any dishonest meaus in their
efforts to defeat you.
You go on to say :
"You are the cauuldato of a certain combi
nation which havo over been my avowed ene
mies, who wield a powerful and controlling
inlluopco over tho ilestlnlcs of our littlo city,
and which, In my opinion, has blighted its
prospvuts of future prosperity, nnd which has
reduced it to it present humble condition.
These men havo the money and powor to crush
anyone man who may got in their way, or
who may expross himself in opposition to
thoir peculiar views of city nianajjeiiiont."
I attribute to you no desire to misrepresent
me, but that in tho ubovo paragraph youhuvo
done po I emphatically assort and declare. I
urn tho rundidato of no combination. In re
sponse, to verbal and written requests I con
sented to become a candldato for mayor; and
if among tho names signed to tho "calls," (two
of which I yet havo in my possession) tho
namo of a capitalist or money denier can bo
found, I shall without hesitation plead guilty
to tho indictment you havo presented. Tho
signers to tho "calls" nro all citizens who toll
with their hands for their daily bread, who
shun oilico, and with uncomplaining patience
bear tho heavy burdens of taxation. The men
who requested mo vorbnlly to bocomo a can
dldnto woro also men of this class tho work
ingmen, with whom since my youth up I
havo labored, and whoso battles I havo al
ways endeavored to light without fear, if
without great ekill.
Probably this is a sulliclent reply to tho
paragraph quoted; but it would bo impropor
in mo to conceal tho fact, that I know ut
whom your Invidious "combination" shaft,
which is winged by tho feather of inconside
ratu anger, is aimed. And let mo say to you,
tho men you refer to, in every possible way
dUcouragcd the movtmtnt to briny me out for
the mayoralty, I acted upon my own best
judgment, independently nnd after mature
deliberation. After a caroful survey of tho
field, I concluded that I could properly dis
charge thu duties of tho ofllce, and in their
dlsclmrgo contribute to tho welfare of the city;
nnd, therefore, nnd for other personal reasons,
I concluded to run for the ollice. I havo la
bored for my party nil my life, nnd havo
nover bforo asked for ony office. In the faco
of formidable opposition, in which I have
reason to believe you wcro a controlling ole
mcnt, I havo founded n paper in the interest
of tho democracy, nnd I thought it would not
bo asking too much of my party friends if I
requested thorn to givo to me an office, tho du
ties of which I could properly perform, and
tho income from which would place me be
yond nil pecuniary troubles.
Hut you seem to beliovo that the "combina
tion" which you have evoked from your Im
agination is your oncmy, nnd doclaro that its
jiowor and influonco havo blighted the
prospects of the future of Cairo. I
know nothing about tho enmity that any com
bipation has to you; ond I bolievo the "com
bination" you have in your mind's eyo is as
unsubstantial as Hanquo's ghost, or the base
less fabric of ft vision. Hut no matter. .No
combination, however formidable, can blight
tho futuro prospects of Cairo. Combinations
may bo formed and attempt to retard itt
progress ; but slnco tho city has had vitality
enough to enduro the administration that has
characterized tho city government for tho
pftt five years. I put away from me all bolief
that any combination of men or circumstances
can blight the brilliant future that lies beforo
From your assertion, that the city has boon
brought to on humble condition, I infer that
there was a timo when its condition was good.
At that tinift who controlled tho administra
tion of the city? Let us see. S. S. Tnvlor,
H. W. Webb. I) J. Haker, Thomas' Wilson,
John "W. Trover, and A. O. llolden consti
tute the list of mayors who havo presided in
Cairo. Was not the city in a good condition
under Col. Tayloi ? Did it suffer under Mr.
"Webb 1 Had it arrived at its humblo condi
tion before D, J. Haker became mayor? AVas
It in deperato straights when you ran as in
dependent candidate in opposition to tho dem
ocratic nomlnco nnd became mayor ? Or did
Mr. Trover cast it inte. tho slough of blighted
prospects? Or is Mr. Holden the culpable
man ? When Col. Taylor left the mayor
office the finances of the city were in good
condition, and tho city was not the debtor of
anyman. While tho city was controlled by
Mr. Webb, was uuy complaint mado ? And
under Mr. Holden how has it been ? During
the last six months tho debt has been reduced
many thousands of dollars a debt not con
tracted under Taylor, not under "Webb, not
under the present mayor, but under Baker,
and "Wilson, ond Trover. So, then, either
Mr. Haker, or Mr. Trover, or yourself, sir, or
all of you together, brought tho city to lu
present humblo condition. How, then, can
you say that a combination inimical to you,
by controling tho city, has ruined it? Hcfcre
Holden was elected, back to tho timo when
tho city was in a good condition, you nnd men
who have acted with you in attacks upon tho
men who form your imaginary ''combination"
havo controlled the city ; and, therefore, if
its present condition is deplorablo, nt your
own doors, If you will only searob, you may
rind tho responsibility.
You havo asked mo to imitate your exam
plo in withdrawing from tho pending munic
ipal contest; and, in this connection, have
tendered to mo somo ndviee. Although you
may not believe it possiblo that any person
should prefer other udvico thsn your, I as
sure you I am such a person ; and in tho
present contest, when I feel In need of advice,
will obtain it from my friends and not from
my cnemios. Heliuvo me, with much respect,
your obedient sorvant, J no. H. OnKm.v.
