The great and glorious Fourth of July,
"the day we celebrate" has come and
gone, and aiio's great celebration, en
ginccre'f by the Mystic Krew, has
proven a success unlooked lor by even
the most sanguine. Three years ago tue
Mystic Krew was a v-rv little and weak
body nl' young men, its membership
lall,ng bido-.v twenty souls. Nobody
looked lor tlfso tew young men to am
ount to a great 'leal as an organization,
but everybody expected to see it live and
flourish for a Very little while, and then
go down with the many other in
stiutioiis ot iu kind that have gone be
fore, lint we have all been pleasantly
disappointed in our expeetatlonj.. -The
little body of biy, as we called them
three years :i(,"i, I1S shown us
to our gratification and pride that
they are made oi stern stulV, and
will live in s'iiti; ot adversity and hard
times. To-day, one hundred and sixty
members an-wer to the roll call. In
their ranks an: found many of our busi
ness men and ii'.-t known citizens. All
aiund firm to their strung determination
to make the K. M. K. C. an organization
that will be respected and honored, and
they will do it.
'The .M.irdi Oras celebration by the
Kttw. was a success, aiid this inspired
them to make an effort at giving Cairo a
gr n 1 gala flay on the Fourth. Tlie mem
bers went to work with a will, and with
energy and determination not often dis
placed by any body of individuals,
labored uiitirin'ly lor this end.
Invitations wvre extended by the
Krew to an the other societies in the
city to join in the parade, but from some
cause, all but one ot these organization!
refused to accept. This society ac
cepted the invitation, but alter learning
that they were to be alone with the
Krew, apologized and left the boys to
"go it alone." Here again was the
pluck of the boys shown. They did go
it alone, and to them be all the honor
ami glory given, for the most success
till ci lebration ever seen in Cairo.
liiK .MniixiNii's rp.oci;i:riN'us.
At eight o'clock A. M., ii obed'o me
to the command ot the principal olUoer,
the members ot the Kr'w met at their
hall, corner of Twelfth street, and Com-iner.-ial
Avenue, to prepare for the
larade. Here again the boys felt keenly
another disappointment. They had lived
in the hope of appearing in their elegant
new uniforms, hut they failed to arrive, .
and they were compelled to turn out in I
their ordinary citizens' dress. These
however were made to look very be
coming and attractive, by the addition
o! a neat scarlet stripe down the
breeches leg, epaulet trimmed with
silver fringe, the badge d the order,
and broad rimmed straw hat trimmed
with a band ol white ribbon, with the
initials "K, M. Iv. c." worked on each.
T ie only regular uniform in the parade
was that worn by Mr. John Holmes, thu
grand commander of the order, w hich was
siiown tiirood advantage, with John in
side of it.
i in: I'Aitk.
In this dress, headed by the National
li.iud, the Krew inarched over the prin
cipal streets of the city, and ten o'clock
found th.! line on Washington avenue,
headed tor St. Mary's Park. The street
in the rear of the line was literally
alive with men, women, boys and girls
in buggies, wagons and on drays, men,
women, boy.! and girls on burse-back,
and men, women, hoys and girls on foot,
at tiii: i'auk .
(n arriving at the park, everything
was found in readiness for the occasion.
In the center of the park, a spacious
stand was erected lor the speakers, be
comingly decorated with flags, banners
and evergreens. In the stiinu were seat
ed Miss hitt in Alvord, Kev. 1!. V.
tieorge, Hon. 1 1. T. I.inegnr, Prof. (i. G.
Alvorl, Mr. Charles Delay. and
W. II. Morri-' glee c'.ub, ot fifteen
By the time the members ol the Krew
halniid.'ft circuit of the park, and
halted in Iront ot the speaker's stand,
the throng that had followed from the
lower part of the city had all got hi and
took their places under shade trees and
in the dancing stand, and were ready to
litsen to the music, the reading ol the
Declaration of Independence, by Miss
Kittie Alvord, and the oration of D. T.
I.inegar, which were to be gone through
with before dinner iu order that the sports
of the day might begin promptly at one
o'clock. The National band opened the
proceedings at the stand by playing
"Three Cheers for the Ked, White and
Clue," alter which Morris' (ilee club
sang the national hymn "Ainerica."
Alter tint glee club Inul llnlshed. Mr.
Charles Delay, who was master of cere
monies for the occasion, Introduced the
l!ev. B. V. deorge, pastor ol the Presby
terian church ol this city, who oflcrcd up
u beautiful and most eloquent prayer.

. Mr. Delay then arose and said : "Ladies
and gentlemen, I have thu honor and
pleasure of introducing to you Miss Kit
! tie Alvord, who will favor us by reading;
I the Declaration of Independence." Ai
Miss Alvord, who Is recognized, as one ol
Cairo's ttiost accomplished and pleasing
young ladies, stepped forward, olio wis
greeted with a perfect storm of shouts,
clapping of hands and cheers. She was
attired in a snow-white turlctou tiress
elaborately trimmed, white miIi and
white kids, with hair dressed according
to the style ol the day. The

twelve years old, son of Judge Mulkey,
of this city, proved himself the hero of
the day. He went up the pole like a

secured the priz:, a silver watch valued

The races were the principal feature,
of course, of the afternoon sports, and
created considerable excitement.
The lir.st race was a hall mile and re
peat, best two heats in three, tor a purse
ot twenty dollars. For this contest, two
horses were entered. The famous old
Kentucky hor-c "Pomeroy," a horse
t itit can run as last as he needs to, and
Kittie Clover, also a Kentucky br-'d ani
mal. Previous to the race betting was
about even, but before the first heat had
been linUhe.l it was apparent Pomeroy
was being run to "catch" somebody and
those who had oflercd to stake their
money on Kitty put it back into their
pockets and quietly looked on. The
luare won the lir.st heat by a length, and
ran for all she was worth, while 'Pome
roy ran under a strong pull all the way,
Pomeroy won the second heat by fifty
yards without any trouble whatever.
The third heat was a wa. .-over lor Pom

The display ol lire works at night
was the crow-mug feature to the success
of the day. Prof. Thomas proved him
self the right man iu the right place.
The display is pronounced by the oldest
of Cairo's people to be the finest ever
seen in Southern Illinois.
Notwithstanding the warm weather,
the dance drew all, we may say ot the
young folks, and many of the old.
Through the entire afternoon, the floor
was literally packed, and nt night the
crowd seeking after this source ol
amusement was even greater than that
ot the day. Eisenberg's string band fur
nished music. On the stands, tress, and
on nil places where they could be placed,
Chinese lanterns were hung, and the en
tire park was one blaze ot light, making
a niagnillcetit sight to behold.
It is estimated that live thousand peo
ple were on the grounds during tha
afternoon, and at least a thousand more
than this at night. All iu all. the cele
bration from beginning to end was the

The sport cost the boys u goodly sum of

A fatal aftray occurred at the little
town of Fonnun, on the line ot the Cairo
and Vincennes road In Johnson County,
at an early hour yesterday morning.
From what we have been able to learn ef
the allair it seems that Cud Wagoner and
Ilarison Burkelow were neighbors, and
live but a short distance from the Cairo
ami Vincuitics depot at Forman. Yes
terday morning Mrs. Wagoner and Mrs.
Burkelow got Into a dispute about some
trivial atlair an I kept up the squabble
until their husbands were drawn into it,
and the affair terminated by Burkelow
t iking a gnu and shooting Wagoner,
who died a. most instantly. Burkelow
was arrested, and a hearing was in prog
ress yesterday afternoon but how it
came out we were unable to learn. We
will probably receive full particulars to
night. W ;. mill l A.

Why the Hug Ordniiiiic i.ot En
Just previous to the adjournment of
the council on Tuesday evening, Alder
man Wright rose to a question ot priv
ilege. He said he would like to know
why the ordinance with reference to
stock running at large had not been en
forced ; and stated plainly that unh ss it
was enforced he would vote for no more
pay for the oHIcers whose duty it was to
enforce it. Alderman 'Vood also
spoke on the subject and
aikcd the mnrshal. who was present, why
the law had not been enforced. Mayor
Winter remarked that "the marshal was
present and could speak for himself."
Marshal Alter, who sat directly iu front
ol the mayor's stand, g t upon bis feet
and said as the in dter hud been brought
home to him, he would state why, so far
us be was concerned, the ordinance had
not been enforced, lie had understood
that It was against the mayor's wish to
have the ordinance enforced.
Mayor Winter to the Chit 1 Did 1 eycr
t.-ll you not to enforce the ordinance ':
Chief Al ter No; not exactly, but we
have talked about the matter.
Mayor Winter-Well, did 1 ever tell
you not to enforce it?
Cbiet Arter No; not in so many
wo:d;but we have talked about the
matter and 1 understood it to be your
wish not to have the ordinance enforced.
And thus ended the dlologue between
the mayor and his chief. Alderman
Wood and Wright were very emphatic
In their assertions that they would vote
no more pay until the ordinance was
enforced. And thus the matter ended.
