Washburn of tho Marlon Press, uud

get along amicably. The Monitor man
says that "Willie got on his ear," called

that an educated man (and he parenthet
ically remarks, In Italic, 'a graduate'),
could make as complete a dunce of him
self as Wlllla has. Then he llres up and
tells Washburn what kind of an editor ho
Is In the foUewlnr style : "Wo want It

RADICAL rrr.R CAM, IT V I-A--
In a previous Issue wc said that when

days of bloody jusasslnntion, his cxecu:

Yithi that hu could hot 'leave tho capital,
aud that ho had finally to bu driven to his
duty by tho serious tono of) Journals out.
sldo of the State, and those in the State
not afraid to speak tho truth; tltnt, when
political struggle was progressing In
Chicago, threatening to overthrow Radi
cal power In that'clty, ho wont In person
to the scene of political dldcroticcs, nnd
against the wishes of the mayor of tho
city, and at the solicitation ot itadical
municipal leaders, placed under
arms n regiment. of men
on election day to stand :i u me
nace to peaceful citizens. In connection
with this wu said wo had a very fitlr
mindetl Ahd Just Governor! A promi
nent Itadical paper In Southern Illinois
calls this lauguage dap-trap and un
worthy a paper as well informed as Hie
Bllli:tin. It further says: "It knows
very well that the Governor showed hi
wisdom hi not being in a hurry to send
troops on u useless mission. What
llnally were scut put the Statu and county
of Williamson to cost for nothing. A
detective It was that finally broke up the
vendetta, sent Oraln to tho gallowd ami
his confederates to the penitentiary.
Williamson county never lacked the
power to make arrests ; tho trouble wj
she know not whom to arrest, and it half
of tho State had been put in arms and
marched by the Governor's order into
the county, it would not have helped the
matter one iota, and well docs the Hulk
tin know this. Politics had no more to
do with the matter than tho man in tho
moon had." Politics had nothing to do
will i tho Williamson county afl'air, and
therefore the Governor did not visit the
sceuo of murders aud midnight
assaults; aud owing to Ids fail
ure to personally investigate the troubles
In that county, ho entailed tho useless ex
pense spoken of by our Jtadieal friend
upon Its.cltlzcn!. Hut politics had some
thing to do' with the Chicago election,
and the pious nnd astute governor went
there in person and assumed the functions
belonging to the mayor, who told the
nervous Itevcridge that ho had under hU
command six hundred policemen, sufficient
to insure a pcacclul election. In tho faco
of this assertion Uevcrldge mustered in a
regiment ot soldiers, entailing another
useless expense upon citizens of the
State. The prominent Itadical Journal
says that a detective brought Cratn
to tho gallows, aud that Williamson
county did not know whom to arrest.
Surely this U Intended as a grim Joke.
Tho officials of Williamson county wcio
not blind to the fact that a feud existed
between certain parties. Tho trail, too,
was broad aud warm. Hut it was not
politic, you know, to disturb those
"happy families," and they sustained
themselves as the bullies ot Williamson
county right royally, and killed a man,
or a brace of men, whenever tho seasons
proved propitious, and the leaves were In
their most voluptuous periods. Finally,
after tho murder of six men, tho slow,
cautious governor oflcrcd a reward
that caused tho arrest of parties connec
ted with one tide of the vendetta. Two
have been .sent to the pcnlteutlary lor
twenty -five years each, and one is to bo
hanged. 'fiulllicr was convicted on gen
eral principles. An early reward would
have, perhaps, saved the lives of Spenco
aud Slsucy, kept Cralu from tho gallows,
nnd IJakcr nud Ilulliucr out of tho peni
tentiary, and brought to Justice tho assas
sins of (ho two JJulllners nnd Doctor
Hlnchcllil. The authorities of William
son county know what persons
to send for. Two nun aro
wanted who are Im-IIcvciI to
be, by this time, voting eltl.ens of Texas,
who vigorously chaso long-horns In the
day-tltue, nud broil tender loins by blaz
ing camp fires while telling of men who
wcro brutally shot from the bush In fur
off Illinois. Tho other side of tho ven
detta Is what wc would llke;to hear from,
and tineo our governor has stepped over
to Chicago to take command of a regi
ment, we arc of the opinion that he would
subserve the Interests of Williamson, and
do an act of Justice to John ilulliucr, by

The American mind Is active, it has

Y., and tho advantages derived by him
from mi extensive practice, would alone
insure ior ms worK a cordial reception.
Hut these are not the merits for which It

that all truth should be mado as univer

of learning nnd experience ho has pro

bencllts of his labors. Iu it ho considers
man iu every phase of hU existence, from
the moment ho emerges ''from a rayless
atom, too diminutive lor tho sight, until
lie gradually evolves to the maturity of
tlioso Conscious Powers, tho exerelso of

ceeding upon tho theory that every fact
of mind has a physical antecedent, he has
