did he monopolize all tho hauling business

Tin r 1 tan bo no doubt ho speculated upon tho

tho advicu of Iago, and put monoy'in his
Mr. Aj)son quotes from tho Cairo 'Demo

that that energy lost tho city many n dollar,

tegrity tu .democrat by atauding by, tho regu

scl foretells that vessel's doom, may wo not
argue that tho abandonment of tho bolter-radical

"going under" of that ticket. Uambrick was

Shnnnessy was named for l'olico Magistrate.

tho ill success attending the ellbrt to cobblp

If any democrat Is inclined to tho opinion
that there Is even n spicing of democracy
about tho so-called "citizens' ticket" that owes
its origin to tho noisy convocation of. radical
and sorc-hcads, that met in the Athcncum
last Friday night, let him cnll to mind tho
First. John W. Trover, a loading radical
and scrip-broker, wns called to thu chair, and
Secondly. Ono of the editors of tho Cairo
'Times,' a papcr'that opsnly gloats over the
prospect of radical nscondoncy in Cniro,

Thirdly. Colonel John Wood, of sewer.and
custom house celebrity; C. F. Ncllis and Geo.
Fisher, two of the most vindiotlvo radical in
Cairo theso thrvt, ofllcintud as tellers.
Fourthly. Dr. J. V. Taggart, who declared
in a public meeting in Unity, last Fall, thtt
thoro wuro twenty-four more negroes than
Irish nnd Dutch, in tho fourth ward, who
could read and write this man plnced Mr.
Thomas Wilson in nomination for the olllcu
of mayor, and every radical in tho houc voted
"ayo" upon tho question of his nomination.
Fifthly. In tho meeting that nominated Mr.
Wilson no democrat made a speech unlesi it
was to declarn himself hostile to tho objects
of the mooting and to refute to participate in
its proceedings; no democrats mado motions
or discussed them; no democrats inndo notni

Tho election U-day is onu of especial con
sequence, becauso it will determine tho ability
of the democratic party in Cairo to conquer
its enemies whether thoy appear in tho gulsu
of radical or bolters.
If the bolter-radicnl combination succeed
to-day (of which thoro Is no real dangor,
thank Heaven) thon ecltlsh, wilful, stubborn
democrats may break up thoir party at will;
impetuous member may ignore Its usages,
nnd defy its strength with Impunity.
If tho democratic party goes down, in Culro
to-day, the demoralization tb defeat will
bring, will culminate In It destruction.

Shall auch things como to pass? Democrats
of Cairo, it is with you to say. If you would
see your party destroyed by men who bolt Its

stay uway from tbo polls, and you will bo

such men, and defeat tho radical hordes that
aro using them, turn out, voto and work for
tho regular nominees. Uo to thu polls early
nnd vote; and seo to it that your democratic
neighbor are not lured into a forgotfulness
of tbo election by tho trickery of tho opposi
