THE MPESDLSG EIGHT.
Thu radical leaders aro mustering their
forces for a strictly party battle on next Tues
day. A full radical tleket will be put in the
Held, aud the whole strongth of the party con
coutrated upon it. Over-eHimating tho
strength of recreant democrats tho bolters
who are now lighting tho party and seeking
its disruption and ovurthrow the calculating
radicals think they see a ehituei) to run their
candidates Into olliuu. Had .Mr. Wilson not
3d his party at dellaiiee, whuu ho discovered
that ho could not make it .ubsorve bis perso
nal ends, and lead oir a very beggarly show
of very doubtful democrats iu his wako, the
radicals would havo Sfou thu futility of a po
intful contest and brought no tlckot into the
field. Hut wo do not regret tho Usue as it
now presents itself. There are enough of
sound, uutliuching, consistent and- reliable
dumoerats in Cairo to defeat all tho radical
bolter forces, together or separately, that can
bo arrayed against them. This ndw phaso,
given to the conflict, will arouso every hono.t
domocrat to determined action. It will bring
every man of tho party, who puts' party as
cendency above his solflshnes.-, promptly to
tho rescue I And furthermore, it affords an
opportunity for teaching bolters something of
tho portldy of forsaking their party because
they could not bend it to their own will. It
aiTonls an opportunity for tho grand old par
ty to crush down and disnUrously defoat both
loiters and radicals; and to say that it will
not avail itolf of that opportunity is to dis
trust Its capacity to govern itself.

MK. OHEKLY ItEOEIVKD, AT THE
PRIMAKY ELECTION, LAST SATUR
DAY, A JUAJCWITY- OFYALIi THE
VQXES, DEMOCRATIC, RADICAL AND
SOREHEAD, IN CAIRO; and if, next
Tuesday, ho shall rccolve an equal number
.he will be tho noxt mayor of this city.
Last spring, in vote of 872, at the demo
cratic primary election Mr. Holden defeated
Mr. Wilson In erery -ward; and this spring,
in a voto of 038, with Mr. Wilson's strength
in his party made manifest by his friends
"scratching" Mr. Oborly's name, Mr. Oberly
'obtained within sixty-live voles as many ai
Mr. Holden had last year. At the charter
election in 18C8, 050 votes were polled
for mayor, nnd at tho democratic
primary olectlons this year Mr.
Obe'rly obtained"votcs equal In number to the
halfofOCG. llesidctthls, nt least ono hundred
and fifty citizens who did not participate in
tho primary election, will vote the democratic
ticket, and thus increac the majority for thui
democratic candldato for mayor. Tho repub
licans and bolttag dotnocrats may. do nil they
can, nnd yet they will inovitably be defeated.
The gratuitous (ling of the 'New Era' at
tho Irish democrats of Cairo is an intuit
which they should properly resent at the
charter election. Mr. Oberly has always de
fended tho rights of foreign-born citizens of
whatever nationality; and has as much right
to expect the support of Germans and others,
as of the Irish. If he has oftener taken up
the cudgel for the Irish than for others it is be
cause thoy hare been oxtencr assailed by tho
radical. Rut good and true democrats of all
nationalities Irish, Gsrmani, and others
will not waver in this conti-it. They will, as
one mnn, rote with their party, for their
HI Character and DUgnW.
The enemy of the democratic party of Cairo,
in the present canvass, Is of a peculiar char
acter, destitute allko of honc.ty or boldnei.
One half radical, and the other half an indef
inite mixture, the ingredients of which are
dissolute domocracy and shameful indecency,
he skulks in by-ways andjis afraid to show his
mesi face In open day-light. This conglom
eration Is led by Thomas Wilson, a man who
being stubborn boasts of his firmness, and
around whom as partisans only doubtful dem
ocrats of easy morals and prejudiced radicals
congregate. We do not wish to excite the
prejudice of tho people, but wo ask them in
all seriousness to pause and think bsforo they
vote for this man; before, Incited by falsehoods
or led by prejudice, they giro aid and comfort
to the enemy of the democratic ticket. What
will any radicaljgaln by tho election of Mr.
Wilson? and in what regard will any re
spectablo democrat be benefitted? Without
any aversion to profanity he daily consigns tho
radicals to tho low regions; and, without hes
itation, turns traitor to his party friends
whenever they refute to give him the offices
he covets. The enemy of radicalism, he is no
truo friend of domocracy, and denounces tho
former or betrays tho latter in compliance
with the dictates of his own Interests. Ho is
for himself alone, and is now attempting to
use thu radicals and sore headed democrats to
secure for hlmsolf an office in which ho ex
pects to benefit bis own purso more than tho
city. All wise radicals should beware of the
advances of this -insidious enemy, and all
thoughtful democrats will bo.
IXqUlKt. I.N'TO THE ANTECEDENTS OF
THE llOLTEK'S CANDIDATE HE
FORK YOU VOTE FOR HIM.
Tko Cane of Mmalleulmrif and Mrhutr.
The few democratic sorehead bolting
friends of Mr. Tbomas Wilson aro boasting
that they have all tho Germans enlisted in
his favor. This boaft it always mado with a
flourish of trumpets, and over it the strikers
of tho bolter' candldato rejoico greatly. We
do not bollevo thore is truth in tho boast.
We havo too high an opinion of tho German
character, which, while it concedes to every
man tho right to indulge in his tastes, and
seeks to add to tho proso of life tho poetry of
social and convivial enjoyment, novorthltss
detest that otTrontory which defies tho moral
ity of socloty a'ld puts virtuu to tho blush.
Rut, if my Gorman has thought about voting
for tho boltor'a candidate, let him, bofore
making up his mind fully, inquire into the
candidate's antecedents. Let him go to
young Smallenburg, and ask why ho was
dismissed by Mr. Wilson from tho police;
let him arcortaln why tho star was taken
from Mr. Mohnor. Wo do not propose, at
this time, to go into this mattor, and mention
it only to awakon in tho minds of our Gor
man fellow-clti.ens tl;o rocollectlou of certain
ovont3, and put thorn iu tho way of ascer
taining fuels which mav Interest them, and
will surely induce thorn to-rofuto tho boast of
Mr. Wilson's low Irlomls, that ho has tho
Germans "all right."
Kvety e'meeratT MiWpl.bor mV ihl
Democrats, confident of success, mutt not
't(t down Idly, and allow the bolters, and their
'radical allies, to have mattors all their own
way. They must work with diligence for tho
ticket, jthty milst bo on'tlicfr guard and
promptly rofulo tho many lies which will bo
circulated about tho regular nominees of the
party. Thoy inust, In short, loavo, no itone
unturned to secure a decided triumph over
Wilson and his radical tools on next Tuoo
day. .There ato democrats Jn thojclty; who
have horotoforo been candidates for office.
Whonovor they were, thoy expected demo
crats to vote for them ; and thcro is not a
man on the democratic ticket who hat not
labored for them with enthusiasm and ellcct.
It is, to say. tho least of it, a littlo mean in
these men, to now remain Inactive, make no
sign of enthusiasm, and nllow other pcr-oni
to do all tho work. As they wcro done by,
they should now do unto tho present csndi
dntcs, not only in consideration of past fsvors
but out of regard for tho future, in which,
doubtless, they will seek for other office., To
theso men, and to nil democrat', we now ap
peal, and ask them to work for those njml
noes of their party. Wo must carry tho
ticket through triumphantly ; and we will.
Lot all democrats, .therefore, ,put themselves
on the record, and by their work show their
fealty to tho party thoy adhere to and in the
principles of -which thoy believe.
A It A DIVA Ir- W1LSOX THICK.
A notico signed "Many Tax-payers,''
and calling'for a meeting of citizens' at 'the
Atheneum this evening, that a citizens' ticket
may be put iu tho field in oppoiition to the reg
ularly nominated democratic ticket, apj-ars
in to-day's isiuo of tho Cairo 'Times. Tho
editor of tho 'Times' speaking of the melting
says that it was "called by a large number of
prominent democrats and a few republicans
to put men in tho field who are popular with
the people.' There is not a single man, who
can show a clean democratic record, conctrn
ell in getting upthis meeting. A few republi
cans are undoubtedly interested, for thocn'.ire
movement Is a radlcaltrlck in the Interest of
Thomas Wilson. Why did the "largo num
ber of democrats and tho few republicans"
neglect to attach their names to the call? Is
tho thing too foul for bolters and radlcah to
indorse with tholr signatures ? If it is, It will
die in embryo of its own inherent corruption.
On Saturday tho radicals meet at the court
houso to nominate u full radical ticket I If.
before that time, thoy can humbug even a half
dozen democrats by tho ''citizens' tlclet"
gag, they will servo Wilson to that oxlent,
and in a llkodegreo forward their own aids.
But the eyes of dotnocrats nro wide opei to
tho tricks and machinations of their enersles;
the meeting will have tho effect of arousing
the domocracy to Ii full knowledgo of the
trickery and chicanery with which it wil bo
called upon to deal, nnd will moro fully de
termine every man who claims consistency
and integrity as a democrat to stand firmly
and unyieldingly by tho nominees of thj party-
When Mr. Wilson was mayor he appointed
chief of police a man who instructed his offi
cers to not arrest any person guilty of keep
ing bawdy or lewd houses. When thiichargo
was mado ugatnst his chief, Mr. Wilion be
caino angry aud defended him against all as.
salients. Even after Jack Winter, ,as chair
man of an investigating committee, reported
that there was good ground for tho sharges
against Ncwiome, Mr. Wilson refused to dis
miss him ; and, when matters became too
warm, and tho grand Jury fouud an Indict
ment, instead of dismissing tho scoundrel Mr.
Wilson accepted his resignation. Good citi-'
zent, republicans and democrats, should think
over theio matters before voting for Mr.
Tho radicals aro attempting to create tho
impression that Mr. Oberly cannot qualify
undor the charter. If clocted, Mr. Oberly
will bo qualified in every particular. While

railroad, in IBC'J, a farm of 120 acres ir. Jack

From Hi 1'ailiH'Hli HrriilU.
Tho democratic party of Cairo havo nomi
nated John H. Oborly, editor of tho 'Rullo
tin,' for mayor of that olty. It is a first-rnto
nomination, nnd tho democrats should elect
lilm. Thu democrat wh i scratches his ticket,
with such a nominee, will deserve the anathC'
man of every true mnn. Hurrah for Oborly
and democracy I
Wo aro proud of tho good opinion of tho
'Herald.' No decent domocrnt no man who
values hisstnnding iu tho party will scratch
his tickot. Thero is not u prominent demo
crat iu tho city who has openly deolnred for

by tho rag-tag.and-bob.tall of tho party, and
by radicals who hato tho regular nominee of

A radical postmaster In Ohio, nnd his two
sons, havo bueu detected In robbing lottors of
money. It remains tor some radical to ex
plain why it is that thero has boon morouiallr
