But the leading saloon men do not favor reopening on Sunday and the bent public sentiment in the community is strongly against it. Sun day closing is one feature of that sys tem of "regulation" for which conser vative sentiment in Cairo stands fitrong'y and saloon men probably will admit that, had the propositpm lata Tuesday been less radical had it beeu regulation with a Arm hand instead of exterminate n the vote against tuem would have been very much greater. The election demonstrated. what has been demonstrated nianv times, that the people of Cairo are lot easily taken 'iff their feet they ar? not easily carried away by waves of impractical emotionalism. And saloon men will do well to show their appre ciation of the people's decision to give them "a chance for their white alley. They will have to admit that there was much cause for complaint asanst them and they owe it t themselves as well as to the people who stood by them in the recent contest, to conduct their business so that there may be little or no reason for complaint. rated, presenting a gorgeous appear ance.
