OITICfAL 1'Al'KR OF COUNTY A'I) CITY
LET THE SUBMISSION BE GRACEFUL.
Tho leading radicals of Cairo arcs encour
aging, in all posiblu ways, tho formaUon of a
"Citizen's ticket" Thoy aro laboring under
tho delusion thnt tho defeated candidate, after
next Saturday, will bo a pliablo element of
Strength in tlioir hands, equal to the balance
of powor between tho two parties; and that
by uniting this with tho radical alrongtli,
thoy insure tho defeat of tho democracy. ,
In rmrsuanco of a well dovtsed plan it rad
ical conforonco was held on Wednesday eve
ning, during which it was agreed that tho
defeated candidates should bo manipulated
from tho momont of tholr dofoat, and tho
names of tho strongest placed on tho "citlzon's
ticket. Their exasperation over their defeat
is not to bo permitted to abate, and to carry
out this purpose cortain parties aro to perse
vuringly upply all the irritants at their con
trol. They nro to cry "fraud ! fraud I" and to
dlnim for thcnuolvei tho infamy of having
voted cuveral time in tho different wards,
without "let or hindcranoo."' Any and every
re? jrt ii to bu considered legitimate that will
confirm tho disappointed aspirant in tho be
liof that ho is the victim of outrage, and has
been cheated out of tho nomination by moans
at. onco fraudulent and disgraceful. "Work
ing their "tool" thus, up to the highest pitch
of anger and resuritment, tho next step will
be t j persuade him to disregard the decision
cf his fellow-democrats, bolt tho nominations,
and tako a placo on tho "citizen's ticket."
Now U'foro mattcr-i come to this point wo
urgo tho several candidates to tahout,l(
they arc dissatisfied with tho judges and clerks
chosen; if they nro dissatisfied with tho rules
adopted for tho government of tho primary
election, or disiatMo! for any other cauio
that is subject to control beforo the "dio is
cast. ' To pratorvo n silonco now, to sane-t!-r
by silence, that of which they intend to
cwr.p!ain hereafter, is to act an unrc&sonablo,
irrational part, and to play most Acceptably
into the hands of tho enemy.
If everything is now satisfactory, let tho
pf V.s bo watched with a scrupulous care, that
till radical and illegal votes may bo excluded.
Candidates havo tho right to protect their in
terests in any part of tho city. Hence, if
they ice any departuru from the rules pro
scribed, or any ilb-gal votes offered, it Is their
duty to expose, then and there, tho delin
quency, whatever It may be. Thoro will bo
every possible effort put forth to conduct tho
election quietly, honorably and fairly to
leave no room for complaint on tho part of
any one. If, after this Is done, the defeated
candidates conceive themselves agrleved, we
swk them, as democrats, to keep in mind tho
character of tho men who approach them to
aggravate their griovancos, and to intensify
their dissatisfaction. If thate persons are
sound democrats, who never bolt a nomina
tion, there will bo soino ground for dissatis
faction. If, however, they are "sore-bcad"
democrats, who fight tho party every time it
runs counter to their inclinations; if they are
chronla bolters, and smooth-tongued radicals,
then tho decision of tho democracy has been
just, and the defeated candidate iws ben de
Again, wo say, let every candldato go into
tho primary election determined to submit to
the result quietly and liko a democrat ; and
let him, afterwards, show tho nobleness of his
spirit by supporting his successful competitor
with zeal and cheerfulness, to tho end. If
the defeated candidates dumean themselves in
this way, tho "citizen ticket" project will re
ceive lu qujetus while yet in embryo, and tho
mlschlef-maklng, sore-hoad nursing radicals,
who aro smacking their lips in anticipation of
troublo in the democratic cump, will como to
the grief of bitter disappointment, and bo
"left entirely out in the cold."
SXAJIES FOR THE 10 SO RANT.
Nearly every tmtern paper that finds its
way west is burdened with advertisements,
tho purpose of which is to catch tho sparo
dimes of the thought youth and adult
greenhorns. Newspapers of tho highestchar
actor, and particularly the pictorial publi
cations, nro always freighted with them, ac
companied by no word of warning, but, on
the contrary, often brought to the spoclal
attention of tho reader by an editorial ref

THE DUTY OF DEMOORA TS.
Hv ton o'clock to-morrow nitcht It will bo
known Into whoso hands tho city government
will bo confided during tho coming year. It

will bo known who will irarao our municipal
laws, nnd who will execute them who In

utmost consequenco to overy citizen of Cairo.
Tho democracy Is tho controlling party and
with them tho high trust Is reposed to choose,
from the candidates now In tho flald, or such
as mtr vet announce themselves, tho men
they honestly bclievo will fill the positions us-
pired to most intolllgcntly, laitntuiiy anu
satisfactory. This consideration alone
should control. It matters not how poor the
candldato may be, how active a democrat;
hnw rlnrrr or how honest if ho have not the
qualifications to fill the position to which he
aspires, in an efficient manner, he should not
bo nominated. Tho interests at stake are too
great to hazard by bestowing rewards for
cleverness, or nolitical activity, or by provid-
ing official "pap" for tho poor. Tho time is
at hand when our best men snouiu oo loiccieoi

There seems to bo a ceneral movement in
favor of an apprentice law. or. rather, for the
amendment of such laws as may be on the
statue book, in other states besido our own.
Meetings have lately been held In Chicago to
urge an amendment of the existing npprcn.
tlce law, and arguments In favor of such
amendment aro based mainly on tne necessity
for more stringent regulations which shall
compel the apprentice to thoroughly learn his
trado'and become a skilled workman. It Is
complained that under the present system em
ployers generally, aro prevented from taking
such apprentices as they may want ; Uiat in
Chicago, where one apprentice is taken into a
machine shop, ono hundred willing lads aro
turned away and prevented from learning a
trado of their own choice all of which Is only
arguing in favor of tho training schools so
much needed at tho west, and which
might be opened, if the means were furnished,
without special legislation on the subject.
Such schools, moreover, would removo tho
necessity for new laws respecting the appren
COUNTING THE ELECTORAL VOTE.
Tho proceedings of tho joint convention
of congress, convened for the pur
pose of counting the electoral votes, on
Wednesday last, wero of a most turbulent
and disgraceful character. Ben Butler lead
ing the house, protested in tho most vehe
ment manner against counting the voto of
Georgia, undor the ordor of the vtco president
pro tern., that order being in direct violation
of the sense of tbo houso. Tho passes between
Butlor and tho president of tho convention,
pending tho count of tho vote, was angry, un
dignified and disgraceful. Butlor was urged
on by the members of tho houso and the vice
president was sustained by tho members of
tho senate. At tbo close of tho turmoil, and
after tho senate had retired, Mr. Butler offer
ed the following resolution :
ltcsolved. That tho houso protests that tho
counting of tho voto of Georgia by order of
tho vice prosiuent pro tern was a gross act oi
oppression ana an invasion oi tno rigius anu
privilege of the houso.
Tho Speakor decided that tho resolution
was n question of privilege.
Tho nrcsidlni: officer or tho joint conven
tion announced that Including tho Stato of
Georgia, Grant and Colfax had received 214
votes and Seymour and Blair 80 votes, and
that excluding Georgia, Grant aud Colfax had
recolved 214 votes aud Seymour and Blair 71
