California has quarantined against Chi
cago, because of tho prevalence of small
pox in that city. In viow of the fact that
disease prevails in St. Louis and other
cities (excepting Cairo, of course), with as
much viruleuce as it doos in Chicago, this
action of tho California board of health
looks like unjust discrimination.
Tho not procoods of tho Catholic ball
will reach about five hundred dollar?, from
which it is to bo inferred that it was one of
the most successful from a financial point
of view ever given in the city. And the
ladies of St. Patrick's church deserve this
success, for they all labored hard and long
and with tho best of results so far as attrac
tiveness was concerned.

At a republican caucus held in Philadel
phiaon Saturday, the following nomina
tions wero made: For speaker of tho feder
al house of representatives, Warren Keifer,
of Ohio; for clerk of the house, McDierson,
of Pennsylvania; for sergeant nt-arms,
Hooker, of Vermont; for door keeper,
Urownlow, of Tennessee; for postmaster,
Captain Sherwood, of Michigan; for chap
Iain, Ifav. J. Power. Considerable bitter
ness was engendered in tlio Pennsylvania
delegation, because- of the nomination' of
McPherson for clerk, and his nomination is,
by no means, believed to be equivalent to
election. Mr. Keifer is a native of Spring
field, 0., in the forty-seventh year of his
age. Ho entered tho army as a private sol
dier in 1861, and was mustered out as a
major General in 1805. He was first
elected to congress in 1876, and has been
With last Saturday's issuo the New
Orleans IMilv Times passed out of tho
hands in which it has prospered for many
years, nr.d it to those of new men who will
conduct it hereafter. The editor, in his
valedictory, has the following to say con
cerning the terras of sale: "It is but just
to ourselves to add a word with reference
to the success of the present management
The naoer was purchased for the sum of
f 31,000, subject to some claims against it.
These claims were a'l paid from the profits
cf the business. The paper has gained
steadily under the present management
and has always paid, in addition to its ex
penses, a good dividend on the investment.
It was sold for $.10,000 cash, which is con
clusive evidence that it has steadily im
proved. Of course, the above price does
not include the Times building, Nos. 29
Camp street and 116 Common street.
Chief Myers' report to the mayor and
council for the month of November shows
that during the month the officers of the
city made one hundred and eleven arrests,
classified as follows: three for assault and
battery; three for burglary; four for con
cealed weapons; fifty for disorderly con
duct; twenty-eight for intoxication; three
for larceny; one forrobbery; twoon peace
warrants; nine for vagrancy, and eight for
sundry offenses. The report shows a mark
ed decrease in the total number of arrests
and a still more marked decrease in the
number of cases of drunkenness, which is
but two over half what it was the month
before. It cannot be said that this de
crease is due to any lack of energy on the
part of the officers; for the fact that, with
one or two exceptions, all violators of tho
ordinances, no matter to how small an cx
text, have been promptly arrested and
brought into tho courts to answer, is con
clusive proof of their watchfulness and
energy. The- only conclusion that can bo
Irawn from this decline in tho number of
arrests is, that the number of criminals and
violations of law in the city during the last
month were less than during previous
mouths, and this is certainly gratifying.
Nearly a year ago tho war for tho pos
session of the internal revenue collectorship
of this district.'uow, as then, held by Col. J.
C. Willis, raged very fiercely in Southern
Illinois. Mr. Daniel Hogau, backed by
Mr. Joseph, ltobarts, of tho Pulaski Patriot,
made a very Btrong effort to raiso himself to
that position by pulling Col. Willis down
isut it seems inai jur. Iiogan and ms man
Friday, of the Patriot, exhausted themselves
in tho effort to attain their object and, see
ing that their polo was too short to reach
tho persimmons, tliu fruit was permitted to
remain to be enjoyed by Col. Willis, even
unto the present day. Yet the war has
not entirely ceased. Others, believing
themselves possessed of a longer pole than
Hogim's was, even with tho Hobarts splice,
are still making strenuous eflorts to reach
the fruit. Among those others is ono
Pavey, a man of many good qualities, also
of several bad qualities. Chief among tho
former are a military mantle which ho
woars by the graco of Oovornor Cullom,
and a blindness to fraud practiced under
his very nose, which seems to bo his natural
inheritance. Tho Shawnee News, of Shaw
noetown, has something to say of Mr.
Pavey, which is not uninteresting reading,
and which it ia well to know in view of his
aspirations. It says as follows: "Recent
ly tho Mt. Vernon News, in addition to a
number of specific violations of tho law,
charged that County Treasurer Linlcy's ac
count showed a deficit of more than $3,000.
Notwithstanding tho News printed tho
itemized account, a card appeared in tho
Mt. Vernon Exponent, headed, 'Nail tho
Slander I' That card concluded as follows.'
"We, tho undersigned, did, on November
15, 1881, examine carefully the books and
reports of Chas. W. Llndley, as county
asurer, and wo mty tbnt In our opinion
they are correct." One C. W. Pavey was
signer of that card. Tho Mt. Vernon Nowb
has pushed the whole pack bo closely to
tho wall that tho Exponent now acknow
edges tho clmrgo of deficit, enters a plea of
emotional incompetency, talks tho pitifu
lachrymose nonsense about Lindley being
a cripple, and with streaming eycB begs for
charity. This fellow Pavey is seeking the
ollico of internal rovenuo collector for
southern Illinois, nnd a howl has gone up
from this selfsame Jelferson county gang
for tho removal of J. C. Willis, for no other
reason than to create a vacancy. Willis has
collected sums the total of which runs up
into tho millions, and every cent has been
faithfully accounted for. If Pavey can
see a deficit of over $2,000 in a little coun
ty collector book, after it has been demon
strated by an itemized publication
wouldn't ho be a lovely thing to place in
such a position as that held by Mr. Willis?
Some confidential friend of Pavey, from a
sense of pity if nothing else, should take
him to ono sido and tell him to keep his
mouth shut, .drop's donkey with a lion's
skin was a frightful thing to look upon
but the first time ho brayed ho gave him
self clean away, and ho became ever thero
after an object of contempt. That proton
tious pelt called brigadier general of stato
militia, which Cullom some time ogo throw
over Pavey, is a failure. To bo effective it
should be a nonconductor of sound. Ita
possessor has been roaming around over
the country, with pompous military mien,
seeking whom he may devour somebody
U temper! J mores 1 Pavey may arguo
that ho knew better when ho signed that
card, but that, being an interested party,
he was compelled to do it, true or false
Should all that be acknowledged, even then
his entire fitness for internal revenue col
lector would not bo satisfactorily estab
At the meeting of the city council ixv
night, a proposition submitted to that body
by the ladies of tho library association
will probably be acted upon. The proposi
tion is, that the association will donate to
tho city all property of the association with
the understanding that the city council will
treat it as the foundation for a public li
brary to bo owned by the city, and that it
will establish the library in a convenient
place in the city and keep it open every
day for the benefit of the genral public.
The proposition of the ladies is certainly a
generous one, and is no doubt prompted by
the noble purpose of giving Cairo an insti
tution the intellectual and moral influenco
of which shall be widespread among tho
youth of the city, and shall elevate the
literary taste of the reading public general
ly. The library, as it now stands and as it
is proposed to be turned over to the city,
comprises about one thousand seven hun
dred and fifty volumes, nearly all of them
standard works of fiction and fact, of bcI
enco and religion, of history, biography and
general literature all by noted authors; it
also comprises a number of elegant oil
paintings, one of them being from the hand
of Prof. Saunders, who presented it to the
association, represents five literary gene
ouses of the past, with Shakspeare in tho
centre; it contains further, some elegant
statuary, among which are the busts of
some of tho most bril'iant writera and com
posers known to history. Added to these
are tho necessary fixtures, such as book
cases, shelving, counters and tables. Tha
library, as it now stands in tho City Nation
al bank building, though comparatively
small, is certainly a model in the way of
beauty and coziuess. It is a room of about
fourteen by twenty feet in dimentions and
about eleven feet high, with walls hand
Botnely papered and hung with paintings,
windows shaded with elegant curtains, and
lloor covered with a heavy, bright colored
carpet. At one end is a raised platform,
upon which is a table and several chairs,
where the librarian nnd other officers of
tho association "hold forth" Saturday af
ternoons. On cither side of the room oro
the book-cases in which arrayed with much
exactness as to kind nnd sizo, tho many
books, and upon which tho statuary ro
poses in calm dignity. All this has been ac
cumulated by privato enterprise since
February, 1877, when tho association es
tablished it with about twelvo hundred
volumes. It received valuable additions
from time to time from members of tho
association ; it was carefully nurtured and
brought to its present state by tho disinter
ested, gratuitous, but untiring, efforts of
the members of the associatirn, upon whom
it now reflects much credit. Tho ladies
would gladly retain full control of tho in
stitution which has grown so well under
their management, but they see, as will
every one else, that in order to make tho
library Borve fully tho purposes for which
it was established, it must bo mado accssa
ble to tho general public every day and
evening of the week. It must bo made a
"reading room," where young and old may
go to spend in a profltablo way tho idle hours
of the day or night. This tho ladies feel
unablo to do, and it ia not to bo asked of
them; it was enough that they devoted
many hourB during tho week and all of
Saturday gratuitously to tho service of the
public. But that this may bo done in the
futuro is tho principal object tho
ladios havo in viow in making tho proposi
tion mentioned above, to tho city council.
These few statements of fact will Bhow that
tho proposition of the association is not on
ly entirely freo from selfishness, but ono
which, if accepted and properly carriod out
by tho city, would give the poople of Caho
a very desirable and, In time, very valuable,

institution of learning. But the ladies do
not propose to rid themselves entirely of
tho care of the institution by turning it over
to the city they have become attached to
it, and propose to continue to make its
propserous growth the object of their care,
even after the council shall have taken
charge of it. They will continue to con
tribute what they can to its stock of in
formation, and also to lend gratuitous ser
vices in its management. Thus the cost to
the city would be comparatively little-
consisting only of the appointment of
librarian and the renting and
fitting,up of a room if the one now occupied
by the library is not desired. And such
an outlay for such a cause cannot be ob
jected to with any degree of dignity on the
score of economy ; for the benefits which
are to be derived from the institution will
be L'encral, and much exceed in valu tho
half mill tax on the dollar of tho valuation
of city property required to maintain it,
Besides a free public library for the young
men and old men, the young women and
tho old women, it is as much a necessity as is
the freo public school for the young girls
and boys, and is proper that a reasonable
amount of the public funds bo devoted to
tho maintainanco of both. It is to bo
hoped, therefore, that the council will re
gard tho proposition of the library associa
tion with favor.
Experience has taught nearly every edi
tor and publisher of newspapers in tho
country, that the "dead-head" system is "a
delusion and a snare;" an unmitigated
nuisanco that ought to have been abated
ong ago; that although it may have orig
inated in a desire to extend "courtesies to
the press," it has degenerated into down
right discourtesy to tho aveiage uewspa-

nor, for which, in return, is expocted an
avalanche of notices that are valuable to tho
entertainers, and should, by rights, be paid
for in cash or its equivalent. Tub Bulle
tin has always bpen opposed to "free tick

ing of the new opera-house, is a good timo
to inaugurate a change. The public has a
right to expoct an "aniusemont notice" of
