TUB DOLLAR WEEKLY MJLLETIN
John II. Oberly has reduced the stibfcrlp
on price of the Weekly Cairo Hullktin
o Ono Dollar per annum, making It the
Tub Crodlt Moblllcr investigation goes
on and on, and every day it pitilessly
hooka up ono or tuoro of tho biggest fiih
in the puddle of Washington politics.
Who will not bo Impaled, it now tho in
Mrs. Sucruav, tho Connecticut mur
dereis, who has just confessed tho poison
ing of eight persons, knows now "sho wns
not Cbrisliati, or tho would not havo
dona as she did." Tho gentio poisoner is
right. Eight murders aro too many for
good Christian to bo guilty of.
Tuk murderers in tho Tombs prison
New York, are becoming very uneasy ns to
the fato In storo for thorn. Tho unexpect
ed verdict and sentenco in tho Stokes'
case have impressed them uncomfortably
as ft probablo foreshadowing of what they
may expect from an outraged and long
THE TETON SIOUX.
The great question now agitating the
legislative mind mid puzzling tho public
brain is "who aro tho Teton Sioux?"
Somo persons good guesscrs claim to
havo solved tho puzzle; somo give it up;
others say "myths." Our Undo Samuel
don't bolievo them myths; ho has given up
.a sum total of 5008,000 at different times
for their benefit, and tho question now
asked is 11 who are they?" Senator liar
lan who knows all about Indian rings, be
lieves in thorn and favors giving them
moro'cash ; Mr. Clagettof Idaho, also be
lieves in Indians on tho plains of the " far
west;" he has been there and for that
reason these Indians are realities; but he
claims that they belong to Johnny Bull,
and como from the Brittish American pos
sessions to raid our country. If Clagett
bo correct, wc, as a nation, aro doing a very
handsome thing by these raiding, scalping
"myths." In view of tho mys
tery that surrounds tho busi
ness, a bill will bo introduced into
congress authorizing the taking of a ccn
us of all tho Indians In tho country, ct
pecially looking after ibo real number,
and cot forgetting their names, so that
there may be no repetition of the "Toton
situation. Ho knows that, If tho wife
whipporswero pilloried and whipped, they
would abandon tholr favorlto pastlmo nnd
tak'o to other nnd lets dangerous amuse
ments; that tho lash hold obovo a brutal
husband's back would bo an nngol of
poaco in many households, and that tho
whipping post at all cross roads nnd street
cornors in the slate would bocich of them
dumb but eloquent advocote of tho right
of a wlfo to do wbnlsho might plcaso with
out runnlns Into the danger of being
thumped by hor irato lord nnd master.
Wo know wo shall hiivolho civilization
of the nineteenth century flung into our
faco by tho opponents of Quinn's bill ;
that we shall be called upon to deprccnto
tho horrors of tho whipping post, and bo
asked to gnzo on Delaware; but wo do
not care. Ojilnn forever! Up with his
whipping post I Down with the man who
is not rcudy to demand its Immediate eree
tlon. It Is our Gessjor's cap, and wo aro
anxious to annihilate tho William Tell
who shall reluso to bow to it I May
Cuinn grow in graco and live foroverl
From tho Chicago Tribune.!
The aprlugtleld 'Republican' thinks that
tho prices paid for newspapers (tho prico
paid for tho New York ' Tribune' for in
stance.) are too high, nnd that better use
can bo made of u million dollars, in u
mere money point oi view, tiinn to uuy u
newspaper whuse nut prollts are ono hund
red thousand dollars. Tho 'Kcpublican'
thinks that considering tho risks und haz
ards of tho business, tho capital should
represent u sum upon which twenty or
thirty per centum is yielded, rathor
than tho larger sum from which
only 10 per cent Is obtained. Tho old rule
for'cstiniatltig nowspapcr piopcrty was on
the 20 pur cent, Imsls by virtue of
which a newspaper whoso uverago profits
for llvo venrs have been ilOO.OOy per voar,
would bo estimated to bo worth $500,000.
But latterly this rulo has been undergo
ing achimgu from tho "0 pur cent, to a l'J
or 15 per cunt, basis. This chango has
been tho outgrowth of cvidonco furnished
by tho lnpso of time, that tho risks and
hazards of tho business aro less, instead
of creator, than thoso of busi
ness gcnorally, for it has been
observed that hardlv anything Is so indo
structiblo as tho valuo of u newspapor of
twenty yours stanuing. Tho unicago
'Journal' is a noticeable proot of tho value
oitnero longevity. Tho only nrticlo lu

THE WHIPPING POST.
Representative Quinn of Peoria, has
not immortalized himself, but is on tho
highway at tho end of which fume s
proud temple shines afar. Wo aro not
sure wo havo not bungled tho figure of , t0 cntry under tho Homostead laws of tho
tho 'Journal that lias attracted attention
for many years was ono for which It was
unea by tno supremo court. Ana
still it is ono of tho most valuatilo pieces
of newspapor property in tno West.

speech wo endeavored to get into tho abovo
sentence; but we ate sure that Quinn
honored be his euphonious name I has
made a ten-striko in tho game of notoriety
tcckinsr, a little game, which in the Illi
nois legislature, Is at innocent as a gaino of
"sell-out" for amusement. Ho that is to
say, Quinn has determined to
stand as a breakwater between belligsrunt
husbands and wives; and ho will, if tho
female heart has not been hardenod by tho
malign influences of modern civilization
Quinn will bo hailed by women every
where as tho evangel of domestic fellci
tudo. We uso tho word felicitudo
with a calm determination to stand
by it. It is tho only word
our respect for Quinn will permit us to
use in tho connection above. It may not
be a word which tho Galaxy's White
would take to his wordy heart ; but,
whether It is good, bad or indilferent, wo
are determined, having a high regard for
Reformer Quinn, to stuud 1 , it. Quinn
will then, as wo have said, bo hailed by
femaloaclaim as tho evangel of domestic
fellcltudc. And why should ho not be ?
Wo havo not bad tho pleasure of gazing
upon tho "mortal fruma" oi Quinn, but,
"in our mind's 'eye, Horatio," he btands n
ligure of comely proportions a man who
might bo described with precision, by
using tho language of Hamlet when
ho described his father to his
kind-hearted mother. A grace,
wo havo no doubt, Is throned upon
Quinn's brow, and wo will take un vuth
he Las Hyperion curls, tho front of
Jove to threaten and command i a sta
tion like tho herald Meicury, und all
that sort oi thlug. Ho must have.
But whether ho has or not, is nellhtor
here nor there. Tho fuct remains, that
Quinn has made ten-strike. Arid he
did It, and did it boldly, loo, by Intro
ducing into the legislature a bill for un
, act to punish with stripes, inflicted in
public, any man who may whip bis af
fectionate wife. No irate husband can
escape by the defense that ho only
walloped bis wife gently. Tho
gentlest whipping will, whn Quinn's bill
becomes an act, call for twenty. nino
