.Mr. Harman thriikctl tho meeting for
tho honor conferred ii m him in calling
him lo preside over a meeting id tho citi
zens ol Uairo a!sombicu lor tno most
audablo purposu a peoph could havo in
viow tho up-building of tho city. "Wo

want of husineff, and now wo havo an op
por. unity to net so that dullness will givo
plnco to enterprise nnd givo to cur city

iiro tho tire-work superintendent let go

then nppenred nnd mndo a shot!, forciblo
cch. Ho was astonished that nny citi
zen should opposo tho proposition to bo
voted upon on Monday. Ho then spoko
of the present languishing condition of
business, nnd cont.astcd It with tho bustlo
that would result if tho proposed railroads
woro constructed. Qutncy had voted over
$800,000 as n bonus to n road in tho state
of Missouri terminating nt that city, nnd
not n voice was raised in opposition to the
mmonso subscription. Let us emulate
that example. Ho had Iieard no good
reason urged ngr.inst tho proposed sub
scriptions to tho Cairo nnd Vinconncs and
Cni.'o nnd St. Louis ron ". This is nn era
of suicides', tho epidemic is prevalent
throughout tho world; "but," said tho
spcnl or, " 1 cannot beliovo that Cairo will
bo so mad ns to commit suicide to murder
its piospei.ty by defeating tho railroad
cnicrpiiscs now on foot, upon t ie success of
which all our material intcrists depend.'
Tho spoakor then reviewed tho eiibris of
other points to cut oT Cairo, nnd closed
with an earnest appeal to tho pooplo to
turn out on Monday and voti for tho pro
posed roads and roll up an immense ma-
ority, tho mean!) g of which no man can

said that this was li' fi.-st railroad speech.
He had been in plp.es whore thoy had rail
roads and in places w'aore they had cono.
Ho always got out of the no ra'lroad places
ns Foon ns ho could. Ho had lately been at
Marion, "Williamson county, and attended
n meeting not half ns largo as '.his, nnd
witnessed ii.dividunls subscribe 30.-
000 to a "nil road, tnaki : ir sub
scription of tho county $100,000.
Ifo then aigucd that '.he uuild
ing of railroads puys and will pay Cairo.
Faith without wjrks is dead. "Wo have
faith In the out-come of our city, but our
faith will bo dead if wo do not work for
her prosperity." Tho speaker then refer
red to tho country opposition to railroad
enterprise, nnd said that if tlioy do not
wish to prosper wo should overwhelm
thorn on Monday and compel them to en
joy prosperity. In answer to theio men
