cured to the 'Tribune' thl fat illco of pat
ronage. and In doing to, we aro compelled
to ty, gave another proof of tho well es

did not do for Mr. Otomentt half the

To Mr. Dtrton more than to any other
man than bltniolf Mr. ClemenU owei hit
eat in the congress of the United States.
At hit own expenae, and sacrificing tbo
frleodibip of other atplrlng members of
hit party, Mr. Barton labored to secure
Mr. ClemenU' nomination, and by
skillful pipe-laying mcceodod in
to doing. And this it the re
turn be hat rocelved. The only fedora)
patronage of a newipiper that can be
given la Southern Illinois it refuted to
Btrton't paper, and given to tho paper of
Mr. Berry wbo wat not tbo partitan of
Mr. Clement! in the canvait for nomina
tion latt fall, and whole effort! in tbo cn
TMt that followed were incited by dislike
of the Democratic nominee, and not by
friendship for the Republican candidate.
Surely If any country paper was entitled
to tho lilt on account of labor done fur
the party, Barlon't and not Barry't It the
one that tbould hare been preferred.
But, in fact, neither Barton't nor Barry't 1
paper tbould hare been selected. Tho os
tentible purpote of publishing tho lilt it
to give information to the public. That
object is defeated by publishing it in a
paper like Barrt't, which it a country pa
per wltb circulation circumscribed to very
narrow limit. In that papera very ex
cellent country paper tho litt
may be teen by two or
three hundred peoplo tbat is all. So
that the money spool in such publication
will be that much money taken from the
public treasury and paid to Barry for pail
and prospective political services. If Mr.
Clements bad kept In view the spirit ol
the law, and had acted in accordance with
it, ho would have selected Tui uuLLtTi.s
to publish the list. We bare no doubt of
this. The Bulletin is the only paper
in Southern Illinois read by thousands of
people scattered over all this portion of
the ttate. It it the only paper in Euypl
in wbicb tucb publicatlont as was con
templated by the iaw can be made. Mr.
Clements, not to our surprise, did not give
to The Bulletin this tug at the public
teat. But we don't care. We ain't mad
for ourself. Not a wave of anger rolls
across our peaceful breast, that is loeay
on account of ourself: but we are not
little auery on Barton's account. Wo are
impressed with the belief tbat Mr. Clom

NAILED OU NOT NAILED?
Thus the aforosald William Donton
writes to us :
Eiiitok Cairo Bulletin : Will you
please to inform your readers whuro ynu
learn tbat tno leet of Jesus wero nailed to
tho cross? You miy not ho aware tbat a
very common modo of crucifixion among
the Itomant was to nail tho hands to tho
crost nnd lie thu foot, at you may teo in

tbat tho tnodx of crucifixion In tho case
of Jesus from thli.
Matthew and Mark mako no reforenco
whatever to the hands or loetijf Jesus, In
connection wltb bit crucifixion. Luko
tolls us tbat on tbo appearance of Jesus to
bis disciples, after his resurrection, when
they thought him a spirit, ho showed
them his hands and his feet to satisfy
them tbat bo was a flesh and bono tiiMn,
hut there is no intimation thut his feet
John represent Jesus as showing
Thomas his hands and his aide, but there
is nothing said about his feet. So that
the "crutches", to which you facetiously
refer, might be vory roadily dispensed
It is very easy to call last Sunday oven
tng'a lecture, '"twaddle." Il would be
more to tho point to provo It such.
Mr. Denton complacently deprecates
our historical knowledge, as wo expected
ho would, and says to us : "You may not
bo awaro tbat a very common modo of
crucifixion among tho Humans was to
nail the hands and tie tho feet." Tho
ogotlsm of this man is chinning. It ex
alts bim enables him to absorb useful
knowledge at a eponpo docs water, nat
urallyloads him into tho belief tbat the
poor creatures around him aro lamentably
Ignorant. We admlro him, recognize bis
groat abilities nnd meekly ncknowlcdgo
our own Ignorance, liowover, we aro
actually compelled to say, wo art awaro
that a very common mode of crucifixion
among the Ilomans was to nail tho hands
and tio the feet. But, wo submit, this is
not proof that the feet of Jesus wero not
pierced wltb nails.
We havo not tho disposition to
go into a discussion oi ims
natter, oven if we had time, but
(ball endeavor to toll Mr. Denton, not
how wo learned that tho feet of Jesus
wero pierced, but where wo obtained as
satisfactory evidence that bis foot wore
pierced at we havo that hit hands woio
Mr. Denton cannot discredit bis own
wltncssos, and sinco be bams his belief in
the crucifixion of Josus upon tho author
ity of the Evangelists, bo must uccopt
tbolr evidence of that event as conclusive,
lie cannot accept what tultt hit purposo
and reject what does not. If the Evango
lists' evidence tbat the hands of Jesus
wero pierced Is sufficient, their evidence
that bis feet wero also plorced should alto
be tulllciont. Even Mr, Denton will not
object to this position. Then the only
question is, do tho "Scriptures " givo ovi
denco tbat tho feet as well as the hands of
Jesus woro pierced ?
We call Mr. Denton's attention to tho
following fact, as It is probable, he mutt
piirmlt us modestly to say, ho may not be
aware of it: It is evident that the ac
count of tho life of Jusus of his botrayal
trial, death and resurrection, was written
by nion who were desirous of showing
tbat Jesus was the Cbrist expected by tho
Jews. This is evident from the fact that
when they relate details of tho eventiitro
ferred to thoy usually add: "That tho
Scripture might bo fulfilled." For in
Hance, It It said that Judas with a great
multltudo catno upon Jesus in tbe garden
of Getbtemtno) and the Evangollst says,
in detailing tbe events of that seem
"Now all this was done tbat tho Scrip
tures of tbo prophets might bo fulfilled,"
Tbe silver for which Judas be
trayed Jeius was thrown down in
tbe temple by tbat worthy Just before he
committed suicide. The chief prients and
elders took their money, say tho Evangel
ists, and bought tbe potter's field. Why
do tbo Evangelists relate this event? Ev
idently as evldtnc goli.g to provo that
Jesus was ibe Christ, it having been said
by Jeremias: "And they took the thirty
'pieces of silver, tho price of bim that
' was prlz'td, and thoy gave them unto tt.o
'potter's field, as tbe Lord appointed of
'me." Jesus, ve are told, wat crucified
between two thieves. Why are wo told
thit? To prove to us tbat tho Scripture
wat fulfilled, which says t "And ho, (the
Cbrist) was reputed with the wicked.''
We are told that the legs of Jesus woro
not broken. Why ? To convince us that
witnesics that Jetus, after tho crucifixion,
showed the disciples the nail boles In hit
bands. Why? To con vinco thorn tbat
ho was tho Christ, as ho professed to be, It
having been said in tho scriptures : "Thoy
'shall look on him whom they plorced,'
Wo beltevo Mr. Denton will uot deny
bocauso we aro talking to lilm now from
a doubter' stand-point that tho Evangol
Lit wrote the account of tho bolrayal,
trial, death and rosurroct'nn of Jesus so
at to make thoio ovontt la'.ly with tho
prophecies which had been inaJe
concerning Christ, whom Jctut proftsied
to be. Hut, Mr. Don ton will claim that
tblt can in no manner help us In proving
what hodonles,that neither of the Evange
list declares that the feet of Jesus were
pierced. Let us seo. Mr. Donton will aj
mit that If tho Evangelists did alte npt to
mako the plorced bojy of Jesui fulfill the
prophecv, tbev would cot be likely
make It fulfill only a portion e! the pr- '
pheey, or, ai Mr. Denton will sty, prelsa- i

gelists, wbo wero endeavoring to make
Jesus "fill tho bill 1 of the prophecW
Christ, could not have ovorlookrd this
foet-piercing prophecy, and tbey did not.
Luko has covered this point bv saying
" And he (Jesus) said unto them,
'buhold my hands and my feet, that it is
' I myself; handle mi antl eon, for a spirit
'has not Qish and bones, -' " and
'when ho had thus spoken he showed
'them his hands nnd bis feet." Now, wo
belluvo this is an assortion by Luko
that Jesus, to provo that bu
was Jesus and tho Christ, showed his
hands and foot convincing tho disciples
that they had boon plorced in iiccordancn
with the prophucy. Hut Mr. Denton says
that Jesus shownd hit hnrids nnd his feet
for no othor purpo'o than to satisfy thn
disciples that ho was flush und lom, und
not u spirit. Luko don't my so. lie a
in tubtanco: "Tho disclplus wero fright

'botoro thorn, but that n spirit did, Jetusi
' to aisuro thorn, said : Look at my bunds

' Or, if looking at theto woundt docs not
' courinco you that I am no spirit, handle
'mo and ascertain if I am not flesh und
' bonos." It will not do to tay that Jesus
said : "Look at my hands and feet," for
no other purposo than to convince lilt ills
ciploi ho was flesh und bonrs. That
proof was furnished by feeling him with
theso hand handling him, and not by
looking at his hands and uot. The Evan
gelists remcmbored that it had been
prophoclod that Cbrist should bo pierced,
that bis handH und feet should bo
plorced, and he showol his hand
and foot to tho disciples to provo to thnm
tho Scripturo, at tho Evang'illtts say, had
But there is other evidence beside this.
A writer of erudition at leatt equal to that
of Mr, Donton says: "Tlmro is roason to
'suppose that tbe feot of our Savior were
partly supportod by a block placed be
' neat I them, and to which thoy wero null
ed.'' Tbo reason for this supposition is
not givon ; but it is a woli-Known laci intu
crucifixes woro used by the Christians of
tho time of Constantino, (in tho third and
fourth canturles) tbo emporer who nbol
Isbed cruciflxtion. Tboro is ivory reason
to believe that the Christians of that timo
know bow to crucify, nnd tbat tbolr cru
clllxet crossos wltb efllgles of Josus Qxca
to tbem represented Jesus fastened to tho
cross in tho manner of his death. An an
clent form of n crucifix-ooo of tho old
timers, a Constantino crucifix represents
Jesus fattened with four nails, on? through
each hand and each foot. Which littlo
item is submitted to the calm considera
tion of our friend, Mr. Denton,
Of courso our explanation will not sat
isfy Mr. Denton, but wo have given moro
and bettor ressons for believing Jesui was
nailed through his foet to tho cross than
ho has given for the assortion ho muket
