was not as much during b whole year as now

the products of the killed trans-ocean nrti
r.ans, and bear away tho golden harvest of
the west and northwest, and tho snowy staple
of the sunny south.'
A DISEASE PECULIAR TO CAIRO.
There is a class of men lit Cairo happily
day by day becoming small by degrees and
beautifully less who are always inimincnt
danger of severe attacks of Taylor on the
brain. Just before municipal elections this
peculiar disease nnmes lis most virulent
form, nnd prevails like a raging epidemic
.among men 'who, In past years, have been
in the habit of sucking sustcnauco from
tho public loal -mtn wlw have made oflice
holding a business, and resent as an Infringe
ment of their natural rights any expression
of n deiro for ofiko on tho part of n person
not in their ''ring.' During trie last past five
years, these men have had matter pretty
much their own way; have nominated oach
other;"haro"bolllPrth"eir chc'ks like thVo of
a trumjx-u-r lnUawlac.the horn of their own
praise; have plucked many a nice greenback
plum from the municipal tree, and have swnl
lowed all they plifkcd with the relish of men
who know.'' good 'thing when tfiey can taste
it have boon,, In fact, matters of albthey sur
veyed, dictators in a small way, controller of
the.deitlnles of the city, and the skillful ar
chitects of Hi evil day. .LastcVcSr these men
wore clamorous, and predicted that the suc
cess of Mr. Holdcn would bo the success of
Colonel Taylor j bul, as soon as the election
was over, their voices, died into silence, nnd
the city wagged along, practicing economy,
reforming the cjrjU of previous Administra
tions and reducing the public debt. But now
the .time, fur the. Taylor epidemic has come
again, and one or two men have it almost to
thy death. Not satisfied with th truth, in.
tent upon getting their arm into the public
treasury by fatr or foul means, they are con
structing falsehoods of tho most gigantic pro
portions,, falsehoods uu foundation! as air
castles. Vi'o ask all good citizens, nil the
tax-payers, who have heretofore given au
dience and implicit bcllff to th'eso clamorous,
chronic otflce-seokt)!, to guard against their
falsehoods and look beyond their words to. tho
motives which induce them to wag their mis
Yo have nothing to say In behalf of Colo
nel Taylor. He Is In every way competent
to skillfully uie In his owe defense the wea
jKins which any exigency may require, iiut
we wish to say that mot of the men who aro
now denouncing him are ignorant of any fact
which can be ued In justification of their
abue. He may entertain opinions concern
ing the city government which are erroneous. ;
but doe any lnxly know anything about hi
opinion on any subject of municipal policy,
except that he, in common with all other
titir.ens, wishes to see honesty and economy
prevail in the administration of our public
affair ? If any purson has this Information
he has more than we poies. "Ve know Co
lonel Taylor u u gentleman for whom wc
entertain high regard; u democrat of un
swerving fidellity to hi party; a citizen
whoe oil U in Cairo; whoso lntcroti are
bound up with its destiny; and whose opin
ion is ontltled to respect. If any peron be
lieves we will denounce this man to conciliate
a few sore-headed office-seekers, that person
is mistaken; arid If any person believes we
would, if placed In a position of trust, give
up our opinion ot hi or any other man's de
mand, that person doe not know tho metal
In our composition.
Hut how nbout the foolish men who are al
ways setting up tho Taylor bugbear before tho
peoplo? Sonic of thorn, pitiful fools thatthov
are, aro honet; but tho great majority of
them aro scheming politician, who live by
grinding their own or somebody else' axes,
and when in office the plastic hand of money
can form thorn into any shap into vessels
of honor or dishonor.
. Wo believe tho democrats of Cairo will not
regard the clamor of tho foolish fullow who
are trying to rnako capital out of a threadbaro
cry, and will act the part of wlso citizen by
sele:ting for tho office to bu filled this spring,
tho most competent men in tho party who are
willing to serve them.

THE ' PRIMA R Y ELECTION SYSTEM
WHO FAVOR IT AND WHO ASSAIL
Tho primary election sytom Is in high fa
vor with tho democracy, because it is emi
nently a democratic method for choosing can
didates. It brings the party to a participa
tion in the work of ' designating candidate.",
and therefore precludes the possibility of
packing, bargaining, surprises and manage
ment, to defeat the will of the majority. Tho
people declare directly their preferences,
and do not delegate that power to others.
Tho primary election system Is jn favor in
Cairo, and itfwill, beyond all perailventure,
subsorvc the wishes of the majority. It takes
away the occupation of convention manipula
tors, and permits every member of the jiarty
to vote for his choii-e among the aspirants for
oflice, and does not compel him, as conven
tions do, to exercis that privilfje through a
dolcgato who may or may not remain true to
his trust. It is in favor because every man
properly estimates tlw liberty he enjoys to do
his own voting, and will have tb guaranttw,
when his ballot is deposited, that his prefer
ence will tell in the ballot-box.
Look around, search and enquire, and where
among the ''bone and sinew" do you find men
opposed to the primary election jystetn ?
With one volco our mechanics and laborers
declare that that syste.ni is belt that permits
every democrat t voto his own sentiments,
.without tho interwnti6n of a'dclegato. Tltit,
if this class is satisfied, tho majority Is satis
fled. Hut wo may go further, and say tho op
ponsnt of the primary election system aro
remarkably icarco among citizens whose pur
suits will not Allow of their classification with
laborers and mechanics. Individuals who may
esteem themselve skillful In the work of shap
ing conventions, see in the primary election
svstem no field for an exercise of their skill.
Ihey are brought directly in contact with the
people, and tho people form a b -Jy ton large
and unwieldy for their manipulation. That
such individuals cry out agalnit the system is
not to be murvcled a'.. Its adoption (to em
ploy language more exprcisive than elegant
"knocks Othello' occupation inttf1 a cdeked
hat." Hut theso aro few in number may,
posiibly, be rountod on the fingers of your
hands. When, ll .-n. the candid voter hears
any person declaiming against tho primary-
election system, as a system, let that voter
search for thu cause of thu u.&imoityt- aud hi
admiration for the ystem will be Increased
instead of lessened?
