Tho wholesale grocery and commis
sion houso of Messrs. Strntton, Hudson
and Clark, has contributed largely to tho
reputation of Cairo as ono of tho best
points of supply in tho articles of coffee,
sugar, tea and staple groceries generally,
in the northwest. They nre heavy op
erators, active nnd enterprising, and
were among tho first to conceive tho ne
cessity of a revolution In prices as a btep
preliminary to a concentration of a largo
grocery trado on Cairo. The confldenco
and large business they onjoy nro de

city by tho train yosterday evening.
Frost is uotonly one of tho swiftest and
most reliable printers in tho country, but

nlncrlinlnntlnii Against (.'nlnt.
Cairo business men who patronize tho
Chicago market, are notallttlo exasper
ated nt tho discrimination mado against
Cairo by (bo Illinois Central railroad, in
tho matters of freights. Wo alluded, tho
other duy, to a shipment of goods over
this road from Chicago to Commerce, Mo,
at forty cents per lOOlbs., and to u ship
ment by tho Bamo houso to Cairo at ono
dollar per 100 lbs. Wo entertained tho
hope, however, that tills and a few oth
er llko cases that had como to our knowl
edge, formed exceptions ioa general rule;
but wo are now advised that only not
Commerce, but all other points have this
advantage over Cairo. Columbus, Ky.,
Memphis, Teun., Hickman, Jackson, all
towns and villages readied through Cai
ro, pay tho Illinois Central only forty
cents freight per 100 lbs., while Cairo
pnys It one hundred cents.
It Is scarcely necessary to urgo that
this discrimination against Cairo is ruin
ous, and will, so long as it continues,
have a paralyzing elluct upon our busi
ness. It oH'ectually Vetoes our efforts to
compete with St. Louis and Chicago In
tho sale of many articles, tho (inference
or sixty cents on tho 100 lbs., being equal
In many cases, to tlio margin for prollt.
At nil events, tho business men of Cairo
can claim It as a right to be placed on an
equal footing with their neighbors. They
are uothonelcssly in the hands of tho
Illinois Central; on tho contrary, they
can avail themselves of tho very ave
nues of communication that enforce low
freights for Columbus and other points
reached by Chicago through Cairo.
In tills connection we give place to
day to a communication written by a
prominent business man of tills city, di
recting the attention of the Hoard of
Trade to tho matter, and suggesting an
early inviting of that body to take such
teps as will secure to Cairo tho rights in
tho premises she can claim In tho name
ot Justice and fair-dealing.
Rallnmil Extortions V Mntlcr llequlrlni;
Mr -it. Editors t
Ah faithful centinels you havo signaled
a wrong indicted upon the busluesw men
of Cairo, that calls for the application of
u upcedy remedy. Tho question should
como homo to every citizen, shall the
Illinois Central railro'ul company be per
mitted to continue their unjust and bur
densome iibcrltuluation in the matter
of freights against Cairo? Giving, as
that company does, an advantage of six
ty cents out of every ono hundred, to
towns nnd cities around us, all cHorta on
our part at successful competition In the
Mile of articles which Chicago or the
upper northwest supplies to us will be
utterly vain and futile. Shall wo not
detnuud of that company, then, that
they accord to us even-handed Justice?
Cairo contributes to tlio support of the
Illinois Central railroad one thousand
dollars, where the town of Columbus
contributes one dollar, yet Columbus en
Joys an advantage over Cairo equal to
tlirce-nfths, in the transportation of her
supplies from Chicago. Shall this con
dition of affairs remain undisturbed?
Will tho citizens of Cairo quietly submit
to this wrong that Is sapping the very
foundations of her prosperity, wlillo it
.stimulates and encourages the growth
and prosperity of hernclghbors' I think
not surely not; and that the protest of
our people may tako proper simps, I sug
gest that there be an early meeting of
tho board of trade. If, through tho ap
peals of that body, we cannot secure
our unquestionable rights, cannot be ac
corded what is ours as a matter of com
mon Justice, then it will behoovo us to
securo from other common carriers tho
best terms they will accord to us, and let
those who must submit to tho cxtoitluus
of tho Illinois Central, ourselves not bo
lug among tho number.
Yours, Ac, A Victim.
A I'rlvllPjre Clitirnrtcr liruiiK'it to Urlcf.
. John Strieker, alias John Jones, alias
"Louisville" is now in tho calaboose, ru
mluatlngit is hoped on tho wickedness
of his ways and tho pleasauter paths of
uprightness and virtue. And who de
plores his absonco from tlio public walks
of life? No one, as far as heard from.
On tho contrary, ills incarceration is spo
ken of, on all shies, as a mere tasto of
that puulstiment his bnd life and long
continued misconduct deserved. For
many years ho lias boon a loafer, tho
frequenter of tho vilest dens of tho city,
the blackmailer of bawds and tho com
panion of thieves, gamblers ami counter
feiters. A foul mouthed, brazen-faced
blatherskite, ho appears here, thoro and
everywhere, and has donomoro than any
ten loafers In the city to creato tho im
pression among strangers that Cairo is
tho general rendezvous of blade-guards
nnd villains. On tho streets, in saloons,
In low dance houses nnd brothels,
among tho wicked and debased, ho has
spent ten years of his life In Cairo, and,
all that time, ho has been permitted to
offend with impunity! Ho lias been
tlned, It is true, time nnd again; but ho
is now serving his first lino in prison.
Ho bccms to have been regurded in tho
light of an outlaw, or rather n "privilege
charaotor" an individual amenable to
none of tho laws of life. There Is scarce
ly a citizen of Cairo who lias not been'
approached hy him, with tho impudent
demand "glvo mo a half n dollar;" and 1
thoro is scareoly n bawd in the city who
has not paid him black mail, extorted
from her1 under tho threat of prosecution
in the oventof liur refusal. Ho Is, in
short, generally and specially, a very
undesirable, citizen; and tho determina
tion of tho utHfers of tho Jaw that he.

Fire Lent IVIftnt.
Tho fire bolls rang out another alarm
about nitio o'clock last night, and soon
thereafter tho glare of a luminous light
drow peoplo from all parts of tho city
to tho vicinity of tho post office, where
the flames were discovered to bo making
slid havoc ami fearful headway In tho
Queen City boarding house. Fortunate
ly among tho first persons on tho ground
wero.tho Rough and Heady and Arab flro
companies, tho Hibernians having a
somewhat greater distance to travel en
tering their appearance shortly after
wards. Splendid streams wero soon
playing upon the burning pile, giving
quick proof that in that contest water
was going to prove tho master and that
right speedily. Hundreds of willing
hands being present tho building was
soon gutted of Its contents, as wero seve
ral of tho neighboring houses.
Tho burning building wns of light tin
derlsh material and burued with great
On either side of it wero houses of the
same material, and tho wind blowing a
perfect hurricane, tho excellence of the
work performed by tho firemen will bo
understood when we state that tlio flro
was actually drowned out before it had
even scorched the adjoining buildings.
Tho Hough and Headlcs throw a perfect
deluge of water from the very start,
which added to the splendid streams of
tlio Arabs and Hibernians, formed such
a torrent of water ns way never before
cast upon a building In Cairn. At an
advanced stage of tho llro tho Arab's
steamer was put in motion, and notwith
standing its had hose, did effective work.
Quicker or better work was uovcr per
formed in Cairo; and to this very fuct
may he attributed the safety of the en
tire block. Had thero been any delay
in reaching the ground, or any lack of
water tho llro would havo swept all tho
frame buildings between Fourth and
Sixth on that sido of the avenue.
Tho building burned, or partly burned,
belonged to Mrs. Miller, and not Mar
tin as stated by the morning paper, and
was valued at $1,200. It was occupied
by Mrs. Rotticr ns a hoarding house, and
was uninsured. Solvent insurance com
panies refuse, wo understand, to tako
risks In that immediate vicinity. Mrs
Hottier's goods wero damaged to the
extent of $300, nnd several articles of
value were lost. Tho eilects of adjoin
ing residents were nlso considerably in
jured by a rough and linsty removal to
the street; but their escape was too for
tunato to permit them now to bowail
