With all due respect to the gentle men who took part in the discussion of the city's revenue problem at Sat urday's Merchants' meeting, the ton elusion is Inevitable that it was mere ly another flounder that must end in a fluke. And this must be the end of any proposition under existing ctate laws, which aims to relieve the city's financial condition without a Bharj) Increase in saloon licenses. Mt. Hurt, who was chairman of the meeting, made a very excellent talk. It hl some of the elements of a good and children to serve as scavengers for the sloppy people of the city? It may be claimed with truth that the personal property valuation of Cairo ought to be raised 50 per cent,; in most cases it ought to be raised 100 per cent.; in many instances it ought to be raised 5'0 per crnt.. In oiiler to be what tbe law requires it to be: "a fair cash v;i!ik." It is well to keep in mind, however, that the greatest shirkers on this class of taxes are tbe big fellows who derive most benefit from government be cause they have most to protect. aJid who usually are the most vigorous nnd the most successful ''kickers." The personal belongings of the ma-l jority of the little fellows has small market value, and the usually pay Hitch more than their just proportion of ta'ves in comparison with whaO :he big fellows pay. Hut lie is a dreamer who believes that any considerable number of people whose taxes ought to tie raised are going to offer voluntarily to have them raised. Of the valuations ari raised so that any appreciable in crease in revenue win resutr. it will have to come through the exercise of power on the part of those who are placed in posi tions of authority we must have among the county officials, whtu. we long have needed also from our city officials in some directions: a clearer and more consistent recogni tion of what is rlsht than what may seem politic, a stronger regard for the interests of the community than Tor individual or class interests more government and less "Let-'er-gn-Galligher" just to please Galligher. It was Emerson who said: "Of all debts men are least willing to pay the taxes. What a satire is this on government! Everywhere they think Ihey get their money's worth except for t!ieo " j The distinguished essayist was right in his statements of fact, what ever may be said of his exclamation, people do resist taxes, and only too sermon; it may almost be designated often they have a right to feel that an exhortation, appealing to citizens J they do not, get their money's worth to deal fairly with one another and 'in the way of good government. But. snare equally the burdens of govern- as Mr. Hurt said, government must ment. Ho confessed that he had been under the mistaken impression, as others had beem that Cairo could do what Paducah has done: impose a license tax upon all lines of busi ness and occupations, which, h found could not be done because the Illinois law Is different from the Kentucky law; and be pointed out, what every one knows, that there is a great deal of tax-dodging in re spect to personal property. It Is said that Mr. Hurt was a minister of the gospel at one time. Whether tills be true or not,, be demonstrated very effectively nt the meeting Saturday that he would niake as successful an evangelist as tie Is a business man, if he should devote himself to it, for hi ran sway at. audience with his gift of oratory, even against its own best Judgment. Certainly, he succeeded, apparently, in convincing a majority of the men to whom he spoke Saturday that tbe city would fl.ld all needed relief from 11 -j financial straits in a move ment for a sharp advance in the valu ation of personal property in the city, which would obviate the necessity of raising saloon licenses which, be contended were already high enough. And his sugestion was given effect in the adoption of a motion, unani mously, that all present would con tent to an increase of 25 per cent in the assessment on their personal property this year, and in the adop tion of another motion that a com mittee be appointed to confer with the assessor and bis deputies, to re quest them to increase personal as sessments to that extent in their lire-ient rounds of the city. A third suggestion was adopted, that citizens generally be solicited to voluntarily declare themselves in the press of the city, that they will cheerfully submit to such an increase in valua tions and tax?s. Now, all this smacks very much a Billy Sunday revival meeting. The motive is pood, the underlying prin ciple is correst. it teems rich in promise; but, in the final analy.-n nder critical examination, it "pans out" poorly in , the matter of prac tical results. Let it be assumed that the plan suggested will be successfully worked out Granting that people will fall over epch other in efforts to get their n'nes In the papers as willing to pay more iaxes (which they will notl: granting on th? other - band, that the assessors w'll agre at the conference tomorrow night, t raise the valuations as suggested, in tpive of the many fervent and angry be maintained (even though it be but a pretense thereof in some re spects), and it costs money to main tain it. whatever it may be. But there- is another phase of Mr. Hurt's sermon Saturday which seems to call for comment. It is his refer ence to saloons and the proposition to raise saloon licenses. One serious mistake which Mr. Hurt poems to have made, atid which others h-'ve tnnde who have spoken oiv this sub ject, is that, the movement to nose saloon licenses is prompted by enmity toward the saloons or toward saloon nun ?s t class, and they desig nate the movement with wmie show of indicuntion as "jumping on the saloons." As a matter of fact the proposition to raise saloon licenses is a forced one a necessary means t- an a'l itn portant. end. The rehabilitation of the city's treasury is 'ho tiling of paramount concern in the minds ef public spirited men. and tbe raising of saloon licenses is the only bridge over which the city government cati scare from bankruptcy at the end of the present IWca! vear. This is the eonoenscs of opinion of all th" strong men who have gone into th" matter with an eve single to the in tr rests ff tho community who are not moveii nr influenced by personal or class interests stand in the way of, or to deliberately sacrifice, the In terests of ibe city. It was the con elusion reached after weeks of con snltation and careful investigation by the gentlemen who compsed the coin niittee appointed at the Merchants' Luncheon to devis" and suggest a plan for improving the city's fire R"r-vic.-'. in order that large sums might be saved annually to the people of Cairo on account of fire losses and in surance premiums; it was the con clusion of a like committee by the same authority to suggest a plan for financing a city hall; it was the con clusion reached at discussions in the Commercial clcb. and. finally, it was he conclusion forced upon the city ceuncil by all but one of the ; p-ak-ts at the recent conference between that body and the business linn and bankers of the city. There is no trace of vindi"tivenoss in the proposition. It i purely a business matter which any business man would settle in fifteen minutes, if it arose in his affairs and without any "fus and feathers" to spenk of. Another serious mistake w,. h Mr. Hurt made and which others have made who have spoken on tbe sub ject, is that the saloon business Is like any other business and is entitled to the same coiihldenUion and treat ment. Tbe saloon business Is not like any other business. The law does not regard it so and it can not be so regarded from any point of view In which general public interests are given proper consideration. There is no business in which unscrupulous men can do so much harm to a com- niunty as in the saloon business. There are rogues, no doubt, in the shoe business, in the clothing busi ness, in the dry goods business in all lines of business; but these can not contaminate and demoralize a community as can and do the rogues in the saloon business; they do not exert their baneful influence in the government and in the courts of the people to prevent, legislation called for by the Interests of the peo ple and to defeat justice. Hence, the great need of preventing bad men from getting into the saloon business and the greater need of keeping a watchful eye and a firm han ! upon them when they do get in to it, lest they lead or compel hoii 'st men in the business to follow them in lawless practices, or force them out. Nor can it be admitted, as Mr. Hurt claims, that if saloon men pay more toward the maintenance of the city government they should have tbe right to run the government, or even that they should have more privileges than any other class of tax payers. In the first place, they do not pay most of the taxes by a consid erable margin, and if they did it wMif.i not give them a right to im pose upon their fellow citizens, or to condrct their busineis in violation of law as many of them do. It would be dangerous to establish such a con tention as a government principle and probably Mr. Hurt did not mean to be so understood. It is been use there :ias been too mucn ot mat, sort oi thing all over the country that TYobi bition has gained the foothold it has As a matter of fact the saloon Viiirn do not pay the license tax at a'l. It is the drnkers of liquors who pay it; and it wotthl' make little difference to the saloon men whether the license is $r.o0 or $.".'" a year, the drinkers would be made to foot the bills just us they did in some of the small towns in Illinois where the license fee was J2.5", and as they do now in Chicago where the fee is fl.O.Ht. Liqrors are luxuries in the sense that thev are not necessaries.! of life as are shoes, clo'hittg. dry goods, groceries, furniture, eie. Whenever whisky becomes" a life necessity to a man he had better have his measure taken for a straight jacket or a cofitn' He lias roa.se. i to re ot any use to himself , or anybody else, it is a well recognized principle of government that the sellers and user:.; of the luxuries should be made to pay the taxes, while necessaries of life should he taxed as lisrhtly as pos silde. accordirr.; to the theory of the greatest good t'i the greatest num to the Sunday saloon which aro not easily swept aside. I-ately these evils bavo not been so serious. Tbe number of Sunday drunks and disorderlies have not been so many us they wero for a time last year, and this perhaps, more than any other cause, accounts for the comparative indifference on the part of the )K'op)e on this subject. I'pon the continuance of this com partitive good order probably will de- pond the continuance of this steming indifference. . The people of Cairo have shown more than once that they are against Prohibition; but probably no one will venture to sav that thev nro. against reasonable reflation. They are for the lieensoil saloon, law fully conducted, and with equal safety it can be said that they are against (he lawless saloon, the "dive," and all that these stand for. There aro some men in the saloon businss in Cairo who have forfeited all right to be in that business, and they ought to be put out of it and kept out. Higher license, first as n means of replenishing the city treasury itl or der that the people may have a solvent government and up-to-date service in their department:?, and secondly as a means of reducing1 the number of saloons in the city this is not a mater of indifference to the people of Cairo, and it ran be said with safety, that nothing would Midi more surely to arouse public sent!- I ment ttgainst the saloon men, than1 (hat they or their friends should stand in the way of these much do. sired objects. In Event of War Great Cities Almost at Mercy of Powerful Few By GEN. JOHN C UNDERWOOD. 9 t t im 1 1 tttt.it t tit tt tt 1 1 I CAIRO IN (869 f (Cai-o Bulletin published by John H. Oberly &. Co.) There was not much response to Clmlrma.tf Hall R. Aisthorpo's lit lo address at the Merchants' Lunch on a week ago. This lack of response was evident, not. only at the meet leg, bi t it has been evident generally among the people. Hut It will be well to wejijh carefully the reasons for this. Manv other matters of great import ance have pressed upon the ateiition of the people, and it will have to he admitted that the saloons of Cairo have not been offensively in evident e lately nut its much so as in (he past, a! any rate. And Chair man Ar-thorpe was a lilt!-' premature in .1 'daring that the city council bad "s'destepped" the high lift tire propu sit ten. There is ample time for that and so far as can l e judged a ma jority of 'he council favors a huh licence -tuTi. ieiil'.y high to yield the city ample revenue also a prop r limitation of the number of .saloons. The mayor promised, ;l1. tint niitnc ii'ee'i'ig ar which Mr. Aisthorp" .-poke, tl'tt such an ordinance wonM be introduced and he hoped to have it passed in ample time to Ire effec tive next year. ! is therefore too eatly and not far to pass Judgm nt a;:ainst (hem en this score. Hut let us not make any mistake. Chairman Ai-iherpe was not whdlv wrong in his 'a!k a week ago. On th" contrary, ho was very mech on the ri-ht track in what w.js, and prob abiv war- intended to be, the main l ash; of hi'; complaint (ho dl- porV. tion of some people, and of some metnicrs of the city council, to leave the eitv in ts financial predicament ra'hor than impose any higher license tax upon saloons. And as for regu lation, that too litis got to come sooner or Later. In years past. Sunday saloons have not hurt Cairo much, but conditions have (hanged lately. Prohibition' bits laid its heavy hand upon the coutrry 'round about ns. and the result is that we are likely to have a weekly influx of 1he drunk ards ai.d rowdies of these "dry" sec tions who make .some of the trains vi rilable hells on who.-Is when they r tnru home, after "(riling up" on Cairo whisky. That is not a good ad verti-cnierit for Cairo any more 'ha i are her ditty Ftret-ts. If oer I'rohibi tie.i neighbors could be induced to keep ihejr drunkards and rowdies at heme on Sundays one of (he strong est arguments for Sunday closing here would lie met. Another serious objection to Sunday saloons coin's from the managers of indiistiial es tablishments where large numbers of men are employed, many of whom fail to appear for work Monday morn ings because of Sunday - carousincs, and thus interfere with tin- opera tion of these establishments. These are not moral but practical objections A republican mass convention wii lield at. the court house on )ctobl' -lid, for the purpose of nominating a county ticket. D. 1).

J n the construction of a military force for coast and interior home defense by a commercial nation it is necessary to consider carefully the best manner of preparing and organizing an army out of the material at hand, consisting of a nucleus of educated, instruct ed and drilled soldiery and a mass of raw recruits. The United Slates of America is undoubtedly the richest country on the globe, self-sustaining in every way. The granaries of this paradise of the new world supply t lie needs of its nearly 100,000,000 people and ad dit ionally furnish large cputnlities of food for the other principal nations of the earth. It is true that the harbors of the principal cities and a few inlet water ways of our coasts have in a very great degree been fortified and prepared against attack lrom the sea by a sunicieiit power to give force to such movement, yet the laet is entirely overlooked that tbe organized coast artillery is totally insufficient and inadequate to properly man and fight more than one-fourth of the nioderuf guns now in position on the coast ramparts ot the nation. , A defeat of our navy itl its home waters not a'probnbility, though a possibility would lay the coast open to an attacking enemy under the guns of its victorious fleet. And it is not certain that such a Ileet would land forces where there could be little opposition and hold a lodgment under its guns until such grasp of territory could be made secure bv stroii" intrenehinents manned with the flower of foreign soldierv, constantly reinforced by well, mobilized troops educated and drilled into an effective if not a veteran army:'' Consequently, prepare for land defense in lime, and with an anny of proportions commensurate with the service that may oe required of it. JNew lork could now. lie taken within a fortnight after fir.-t attack and lodgment in rear, and ashington be captured almost immediately be fore a suiliciciit repelling force could be concentrated to resist land inva- i.Oi.. It is perfectly true that in case of foreign invasion the whole count rv would rise up lo drive the invaders out, and would ultimately do it, no matter what the cost. Hut that could not be done quickly, and until great destruction had Urn worked against our people, without previous prepara tion to meet tlut despoiler; for volunteers come with war and without preparation. The millions upon millions of dollars that have been put into the navy are well placed, and it should be fostered and not be curtailed. It is as nece-sary an adjunct to the arror a the arwv is to it, and both together form the defense of the nation. There arc plenty of fortifications and guns, but too few officers and men to man and work them. What is the use of having four guns with which to protect your home if you can only shoot one? What is the use of expending fabulous sums of money constructing permanent forti'ha tions and mounting them with the most expensive disappearing guns un less such fort'' tre manned with educated oifieers, skilled runners and competent soldiers to care for such valuables of the nation?
