Ste. Genevieve Herald
Ste. Genevieve, Mo.
Friday, 4 Jul 1884

This is the time of the year when the festive fly gets in his best work. He has little manners, but is ready at any time to stick his bare feet in a "feller’s" face. We would not mind this so much if he were not such an early riser and persisted so emphatically in our rising too when we are having pleasant dreams.

We are glad to herald the return of the BARLOW-ARLINGTON Combination, who became such prime favorites two or three seasons ago. Judging from press notices received in other towns on the river, the company is stronger than
ever, and is composed of the following well-known people: Mr. BARLOW, Miss Myra ARLINGTON, Miss Geneva FRAVELL, Mrs. F.J. MCHENRY, Miss Emmy PARKER, Chas. WOLFORD, Ed. SOMMER, Chas, BAILEY, F.J. MCHENRY and Little Inez. While in our city they will produce Peril, Hazel Kirk, and Fagg’s Ferry if the stage will permit, besides other dramas of equal merit.


C.T. BURKS, Ste. Genevieve County: I am for the old ticket for President. My choice for Governor is MARMANDUKE, and for Congress M.L. CLARDY. I have no expression to make on the tariff.  F.A. ROZIER, Ste. Genevieve County: CLEVELAND will suit me for President, and I am for MARMANDUKE for Governor, conditionally. COX, of our
county is a candidate for State Auditor and we shall take no hand in the Gubernatorial fight. The Democrats of Ste. Genevieve County are ready for action and will support the ticket. The party seems disposed to do the right thing toward the people this year, and with a good strong platform and true men to stand upon it as standard bearers, the Republicans can be given a Waterloo defeat.  W.F. COX, candidate for State Auditor, Ste. Genevieve County: I prefer BAYARD for President, but I think CLEVELAND will get the nomination.  According to my idea TILDEN is out of the race. I’d rather not state my preference for Governor, I am not a free tradist on the tariff question, but still I would like to see a reduction.

A young man, Joseph LANNEGAN, of St. Louis, cmae by here this week to identify the body of the young man found in the river last week by Louis BECQUETTE, which he supposed to be that of his brother-in-law, Wm. LEWIS.
He procured help on Wednesday and had the body dug up, but could not identify it, the face being so disfigured as to defy recognition. At the time of this writing we could not ascertain whether any identification had been made.

The German Fair Play of June 22nd says:
"John Adams was President of the U.S. and afterwards held the office of a Justice of the Peace in Massachusetts. If the citizens of Ste. Genevieve county elect him prosecuting attorney, and he then faithfully performs the duties of his office, he will certainly not humble himself, although he was once a candidate for circuit judge and state senator and was favorably mentioned for Congress."
(Herald reply): This is decidedly going beyond the old ticket, for John Adams has been dead this day 38 years, and might prove a little too ancient as prosecuting attorney, even for old Ste. Genevieve.


At a meeting of the Board of Aldermen of the City of Ste. Genevieve held at the Mayor’s office on July 1, 1884, the following Resolutions of Respect to the memory of the late Joseph JOKERST, Sr., were adopted.  Whereas it has pleased Almighty God to remove from among us in the evening of his life our worthy friend and associate, Mr. Joseph JOKERST, Sr., who: for over 40 years of his life, has lived among us, loved and respected by all who knew him, therefore be it.  Resolved, That in the death of Mr. Joseph JOKERST this Board has sustained the loss of one of its most zealous members, and the community an excellent and useful citizen. Resolved, That we accord to his memory this heartfelt tribute of respect, and tender to his surviving family our condolence and sympathy in their
heavy bereavement.  Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be transmitted to the family of the deceased, and that the same be spread upon the minutes of this meeting.
