The Bolter-Radical Cohorts
A Hotly Contested Fight!
A GLOltlOUS VICTOltY
Every Man on the Ticket Elected!
Tho political light of yesterday stands with
out a parallel In tho history of Cairo. Jt was
short, desperate, sharp but decisive IJedeuth
the ballots of faithful democratic veterans, the
bolter-radical cohorts went down; but not
without u struggle that will long bo remcro
bored as the sharpest, most strategical and
obstinate that marks the political history of
Cairo. Tho radicals, aided and abetted by
largo number of democrat who sot at deflanco
tho usages of their party, contended with the
democracy that remained true to their colors,
with the energy of desperation; but tho
loud shouts from patriotic democratic throats,
that awakened midnight uchocs last night,
told of a glorious victory I Knough of demo
crats remained true to their party, to meet
and vanquish the foo at overy point, and
most nobly did thuy perform that duty I
Kowhera whs the democratic lino broken;
wbontver the cocmy assailcd it ho was driven
back in disorder and defeat. The gallant de
mocracy, never before so fiercely assaulted,
nobly vindicated itself, and tsugh', its faith
less followers that it can triumph without
them; and that, in the future, if they desiro
a share In tho fruits of victory they must
stand by and fight under their colors.
Tho victory, considering the character of
tho contest, is most grutitlylng.
Here is tho result in detail:
Tho following result obtained from tho tally

NO POLITICS IN LOCAL ELECTIONS.
Tho supporters of tho so-called "citizens'
tjekot,' yesterday, resented with spirit nny
Intitnation that thoy had coased to bo demo
crats, justifying their opposition to tho demo
cratic nominees by tho pica tuftt politics
should not enter into local elections, but that
every voter should be loft frco to'voto for tlio
AVhllo wo sincerely hopo that tho prevail
ing disaffection U only temporary, We cannot'
dispel t,h conviction that it will huvo a de
moralizing effect upon tho party. "Wo insist
that no democrat or number of democrats,
loss than a majority, havo tho right to defy
tho expressed will of tliwlr party. "Wlion the
.majority ceases to rulo tho minority, than or
ganization is gone, nnd tlio party becoinos tho
proy of tho opposition. It may be truo that
some, say all, of tho democratic nominees
wero objcctionablo men; but tho fact that nn
unquestionable majority of tho party had de
clared for them should have boon tho govern
ing consideration. To Ignoro und defy tho
decision of tho majority, and to follow tho
.bent of individual Inclination, or to yield to
porsonnl projudico or dislike, is to disrupt
tho party, nnd imperil its nscendency.
That plea of radical purontago that politics
should not htor into our charter elections,
must never be admitted. If there wa, in the
United States, u radical vlllago of oven flvo
hundred inhabitants, that Ignored politics in
tho election pf Its city ofllcers, tho democracy
might "sco that'' and "co five hundred bettor,"
by ignoring politics in n democratic town of
ono thousand Inhabitants. Hut 11s It is tho in
variable rule of tho radicals to maintain their
organization and fill all the otllces where they
arc in the majority, tho suggestion to al.n
don politics In our city olections to let go for
naught our four hundred majority, and give
radicals an equal show in tho race for our
"flesh pots," must not bo enter tainod for a
moment. The city of Cairo, with Its 10,000
Inhabitants, is too largo, and tho right to its
control of too high a consequonce, to abandon
oven, in part, to our political cncmlus. Fur
thermore, upon the preservation of the demo
cratic majority here, depends tho future us
condency of tho party In this congressional
district. Put politics asido in our charter
olections, and how long will it be before radi
cals fill overy position of honor and trust in
tho city 7 And to say that they would not
emnlov tho patronage of their positions In
such manner as would best conlrlbuto to the
accomplishments, of party ends, is to give
them a character for unsclfishnc.s and politi
cal indiflorenco to which they urgo no claim
themselves. Adopt, for two years, tills no
party siiKtrcitlon, and you turn tho city over,
irredeemably, to radical control. Then preach
your no party doctrine, nnd they will laugh
at you for nn idiot. For every office, great
and small, a radical will bo found, and tho
democrat who ceeks position, oven by appoint
ment, will have his pains for his reward.' So
It is everywhere, where tho radicals havo the
upper hand, nnd so it would be here.
