OFFICIAL PAPER OF COUNTrANP CtTjf
STAND FAST FALTER NOT AN INSTANT.
The AVIiole Tlckrl, from Top to
Without a Heratch.
"Wo ask tho democrats of Clro, tho truo
democrat! who, year after year, have resisted
tlio uttaeks of radicals nnd boru-lieadi nllkc, to
stand fust Iri the present canvass and falter not
The enemy will approach In the dligulio of
"citizen's ticket," or a "pcoplo's ticket," or
an "independent ticket." Ho will undoubt
edly begin at an early day to sing songs of
lamentation over tbo defeated candidates; will
tear wider tho gnplng wounds of Mr. "Wllionj
will comb tho sore bonds of democrats who
couldn't have thoir own way, with the comb
of tantalizing talk; will rulse the cry of "Tay
lor," and mnko nil tho city resound with its
iteration; In short, in overy way, will en
deavor to securo tho defeat 6f the regular
nomlneo of the democratic party. But of no
avail will all these efforts be. The great mass
of tho party will stand fast, nnd triumph over
njl tho chicanery of radicals and bolters.
The democracy of the city must not, how-
ever, 1)0 ovor-confident. Kvery member of
tho party must work, and work earnestly,
too. Tho combination In oppndtion is formi
d.ihl", computed of nil tho radicals, except a
few who nro too decent to bo caught In very
mean company! and "tlio bolting democrat,
who nr .determined to rule or ruin. This
combination, inspired by hatred ami frenzied
by chagrin and disappointment, will lnlor
with untiring energy to achieve success. Al
ready Mr.'.Tohri Lirilgar, 'the rliw leader of
the radical wing of tho anti-democratic party
of Cairo, is g'-tting his forco well in hand for
tho onetj and, probably, in accordance: with
his plan of campaign, Messrs. Artor, Trover,
llaker, nnd other radicals of liku ilk, have be
come busy nt th" work of street corner talk.
"Who is to leu'S'Ui w.bradfd w liig of tho
opposition, hn "t yet been inadu public. It
is said by some thuOlr. Jack AVintor will bo

uspi. Ud democrat proposes to tako the con
tract, but, no mutter who leads the opposing
Ibrres tho democracy are sure to win, if they
nro bold, aggressive and nntlring. If they
ktatul fiut to thoir colors, and push forward
tbo whole column, thoy will sweep all oppo
ition away mid com out of tho light victo
rious. So, dtunocrats, stand fast falter not an In
stant. Tho organization of the party In Cairo
must either be kept Intact now, or bo forever
destroyed. Vote, therefore, tho whole ticket,
from top to bottom, without a scratch!
A TIIRKATKSF.D 110I.T.
It has been said, tiino and again within
the nasi week, that Mr. Thomas Wilson, tho
.Inm.uratle member of tho Statu Hoard of
Vinnlixntioii from this clii-trls-t. proposes to
bolt the democratic party and join hands with
tbo radicals. "We cannot believo theso ru
mors. Ve have on two occalons supported
Mr. "Wilson for otlicc once for mayor, and

him. and attempted by that opposition to
elect the opioltln candidate, ho would have
denounced us as unworthy to ml it a demo
crntu- paper, a n radical in disgulo nnd
l.'ue in hi. Wo know no reason fr bolloving
that a democratic editor should ho held to
ctrti-tor twrlv alleiriaiuii than a doniocratio
ofllee-holder llko Mr. Vilon ; and wo there

accordance with nn understanding between
tbo strong partisans of Mr. W'ilsoil.
That wo have bitter nnd unrelenting cno
inlos in tbu democratic party is not to bo
wondered at, since we have bad morn than
one occasion to belabor tho weak and waver
ing members of tho party and calllupou tbo
peoplo to murk them for condemnation. At
nil times, wo have Mood up for the party to
which wo belong i Imvo unwaveringly sup
ported it- men and measures; have uiu-t-us-Inalvdonouiicod

possible way, have battled for iUMiccoss. In
tho perfornmneu of our duty in this regard,
we have not been it mild-muniiered man, and

Tho ticket nominated by tho democracy of
Cairo, on Saturday, has elements of strength
and popularity' that Insuro its triumphant
success on Tuesday week. It Is not, in every
particular, what tho majority of tbo people
conjectured it would be, but that it is nny tho
less available, on that account, wo can scarce
We haro hoard no one complain of tha
manner in which tho judges And clerks of tho
primary election discharged their duties. On
the contrary, we have heard them compli
rnontod for a cautious and exact compliance
with tho rules laid down for thoir govern
ment, and for tho prompt rejection of tickets
tendered by parties unwilling to submit to tho
condition imposed, or who, otherwise, wcro
not entitled to a participation in tho election.
This being true, nnd tho voto.casl being con
siderably less than the known democratic
strength In the city, theIckct chosen is un
doubtedly tho choico of tho democracy, nnd
at such demands the support of tho party.
Tho radical strategists of tbo city aro trying ;
to scatter seeds of disaffection, by urging upon
tbo attention of tho few democrats who aro
disappointed in tho result, that the candidato
for cltv clerk, having received less tlian ono
quarter of tho votes thrown, is not In good
conscience, tho nominee. Now it so happens
that Cairo democrats havo tho right and the
common senso to declare rules lor tneir own
government in making party nominations,
and having decided this year, as they did last,
that a plurality of vote was sulllcient to nom
inate, thov will hold Mr. Mocklcr ,to bo tho
regular nominee, and as such support mm.
It is enotigh fof democrats to know that tho
ticket is regulnrly In the field according to
democratio usage that is not n creature of
fraud and trickery but tho work of honest
hands. Knowing this, -.they will unite upon
It, and, uniting, will elect it by an'oia-fash-lonod
Dealing with the candidates in. detail, we
shall 'ps tho head of the tlckot, as too Inti
mately connected with oumoIvcs to admit of
comment. Of tho candidate for city attor
ney, however, we may speak in terms of un
resorved prale. Ho Is n gentloman of un
questionable talent, of kind disposition and
courteous address, and will servo tho city
with the samo fldclltv nnd ability that have
hitherto distinguished his official connection
with our municipal affairs. Tho vote ho re
ceived was most complimentary, and com
mends him to notlco as tho unquestionable
choico of tho party.
Hrvan Shannossy, Esq., tho nominee for tlio
ofllcc of police magistrate, received his nomi
nation over one of the mot popular gentle
mnn in tho party, by a majority of over forty
votes. Ho is entirely familiar with tho mul
tifarious and complicated duties of the posi
tion to which he aspires : is liked by every
body ; has grown old j needs tho emoluments,
and is such an apt flxturo of tho place that
there will, probably, bo no effort made to dis
place him no successful effort, to a certainty.
The nomlneo for city marshal, Mr. Michael
Bambrick, is nn intelligent, active, enterpris
ing gentleman, whoso capacity for tho olllco
for which he is nominated, no man questions.
By a recent flro overy dollar of his wordly
goods wero swept away in nn hour, leaving
him absolutely penniless. Hu will be elected
bv an overwholmlni; majority, and will show

and being a wilt mid good pensmaii pocne

John Hylnud, tho nomlneo for city treasu

last year, and bis munly resistance of radical

HON. WESLEY SLOAN A HIGH COM
PLIMENT PAID HIM 'II ' A IlEPUIi
Wo clip tho following article from tbo
Golconda 'Herald,' and invito every honest,
right-thinking man, to glvo it a caroful pe
Somo of our politibal frionds seem to think
it very singular that weshould support Judgo
Sloan; but is it not equally as singular that
many leading republicans In this county
have solicited him to run, and havo promised
him their support if ho would do so? The
matter is Tory easily explained : Tho profes
sional oxperienco of Judgo fjloan, his legal
learning, his honesty of purpose nnd business
habits eminently qualify him for this position.
Common senso dictates to overy man that nn
election for judgo ought not to asumo a par
tisan character. His duties are too sacred to
bo performed under tbo influenco of political
prejudices. Wcro tho ofllco a political one,
then wo would bo influenced by tlio principles
of tho party to which wo belong ; but, in this
caso, recognizing, ns wo do, that tho olllco is
not a political ono: that politics has nothing
wbatover to do with it, wo aro in favor of a
man who is known to possess all tbo learning
and ability necessnry to fill tho ofllco. Ho
has been tried for n period of moro than ten
years, nnd, from tho past, wo beliovo, if
elected, tbnt we will bavoanablo and uprltrht
Coming as this docs, from a lending jour
nal, holding political views opposed to those
entertained by Judge Sloan, published in tho
town where ho has reided for a quarter of a
century, and in a county which which gavo
upwards ol flvo hundred republican majority
at tho lust election, it is fraught with moro
than ordinary significance. In effect this,
nrticlo says " wo as republicans say that an
election forjudge ought not to assumo a par
tisan cbaractor. "Wo prefer voting for Judgo
Sloan knwing ns we do, that he Is possossed
of all tho learning and ablltv neces
sary to fill the ofUce, and that lie. will be in
future ns ho a been in tbu past, an upright
judge, than to vote for a man, not his peer,
simply because ho is a republican." Hero wo
havo tho testimony of those who havo known
Judgo Sloan for vcars. His neighbors, his
townsmen, his friends, irrespective of party,
bear witness to his mauv virtue.', and nro
content to nlaca in his hands tho scales of
justice, anif make him judgo of this circuit.
To thoso who know him less intimately than
his iutmcdiato neighlors,,this evidence of bis
ability, uprightness and purity of character,
should, and wo think will be, satisfactory.
With such a judgo tbo rights of tho people,
of tho state nnd of the nation, will be respec
ted and enforced.
It is a praise-worthy fact, that tho '11 raid'
hat risen altovo the ordinary channel of po
litical newspapers, and set an example wor
thy of Imitation, under like circums'taucas,
by not only republican and democratic jour
nals, but by individuals of nil politicnl par
ties. Wo desire to assumo n stand in this con
test, other than one looking to party success.
Wo eschew party and advocato tho man. If
elected, as ho no doubt will be, Judgo Sloan
will not be tho choico of a party, but of tbo
people. It will bo no party triumph, but n
victory of purity of character, uprightness
All the men who voted for tbo candidato
