Is claimed by some of the leading Itepub
licans of Alexander and Pulaski counties
that the object of his vi -It was to manipu
late the conventions held lu Cairo and
Mound City on last Saturday, in favor of
Jonathan C. WIIU3 (or congress from tills
district. It is asserted by some that on
the day of the convention Pope went to
Mound City, and while working lu the
"back ground," succeeded In carrying
his point having the delegate Instructed
lor Willis. On Ids return to Cairo he
caused telegrams to be sent to tho Uhbe
Demoerat announcing that botli the Al
exander and Pulaski county conventions
had lntructed for Willi. That the dele
gates from till county to the congress
ional convention were Instructed for Wil
lis is denied ; and it is pretty certain that
if tlie mas of the party have any voice
lu the matter they will not be instructed
for him. Hut that which bothers
many I'epubllcans here is, why
Pat .Pope should be so deeply inter
ested in political matters in this
district what end he has to gala. Kver
body knows Pope's relations with Dan
Mitnii, and the ijtioiiou naturally arises
whether D.111 Munii and Pope are not
mutually Interested 111 this matter, and if
o, why do they so much dcire the nom
ination of Jonathan C. Willis V A oiid
many licpublican think that the hc-t
thing Pope can do 1 to keep Ills lingers
out of the political pie in this district.
He is Dan Mitnu's law partner, ami Itc
publlcans here think the best thing lie
can do Is to stay hi Chicago and help
Dan out of his crooked whisk troubles.
Present Indications are Unit there will be
a good sled row in the Ibidlcal camp
over tills matter, and the party who will
be most elfectcd by it will doubtless be
Jonathan C. Willis, candidate for coi-
gress on the ltepublicau ticket.

Caiuo, 111., May II. 170.
P.niroit Armts-Jouriitil : My atten
tion lias been drawn to a communication
lu your lust issue from "Dele"' with re
gard to school matters.
"Dele" tells the nubile this with 11 irrav-
Ity that Is only equalled by the absurdity
of the statement.
Does "Dele" imagine I perlorm all the
mines uevoiving upon a principal" In
that "negro school," and work there on
an average of eight hours per dar "free
My present jiosltlou Is not owing to my
ability as a Normal teacher, nor doe It
depend upon thai. I hold it doubtless
"owing to the fact" that 1 know how to in
struct and control the untaught and not
easily managed element represented lu
that school, and (icrhaps "owing to the
fact" that the patrons appreciating tho
Instruction the pupils of the negro
school receive, no longer di-turb Mr.
Dele s peace of mind bv seeking ad-
mi-lon fur their children in other
school. "For. nml In consideration ol
thl," I receive my salary. I was willing
and ready at any time to take charge of a
Xormal clas; but the organization of
such a class did not depend on me, but
on the superintendent, or the board.
Willi regard to the other point in
"Dele's" communication, viz., "drawing
pay without certillcate," allow tnc to
cxphin. Wherever I have taught my
Statu certificates have been recognized
and deemed sillllcieut evidences ot quail
flcatlon. I took it for granted that It was
the same here, as the schools of Cairo are
under the control of a board of educa
tion. Xo one told me differently until I
had"lK!cn teaching several week:s. I did
not draw my salary alter being Informed
of thl until I obtained a cer
tillcate Irom the county superintendent.
My sisters labored under the same mis
take which 1 did. us their State certifica
tes had been honored heretofore. We
obtained county certificates as soon as
we understood it was necessary.
In view of this fact I might inquire,
what motivu liad "Dele'"ln thrusting such
an Insignificant matter before the public;
but I cannot ull'ord to light down hill, al
though I can airord to risk my reputa
"Pitixcn'Ai. ok a Xkiiiio School."
The only point Mrs. "Dele" Ilarrell
makes lu her reply, published lu Tues
day's lii'M.Kri.v, i that I accepted, with
as good a grace as pos-Ible, the appella.
tlon which she herself gave me in her
communication printed lu Iho Argtir
Juumul. And now she quarrel at me
not witli me, fair friend because I quote
the title she slurlngly bestows. She first
defines my position, then with admirable
consistency questions the truth of her
own assert ion ! She begs to remind
mo that Mr. A. is principal of Cairo
school. 1 have a historic belief that Mr.
A. Is. superintendent, or pilnclpal If
Mrs. II. pleases to use the terms synony
mously ot "the district schools or
Cairo." 1 have the same kind of belief
that Gen. (Irant Is president of tho United
States of America. Further than that I
I have never seen either of these gen
tlemen preforming the executive duties
of their respective olllces. Mrs. II.
might, lu her usumed character of men
tor, Investigate the matter. Perhaps
this Is one of the "daik ways" she
would like to have illuminated.
About that salary that often men.
tioned, much discussed salary. I accept
ed tho position or "principal of the col
ored schools" of Cairo (I quote from my
Utter uf tiijiiietnciit)sit the minimum
salary 1 would, or will, accept hi any
school or schools, whltcjor colored. My
present salary Is not the one "ollercd"
but tho onu demanded. While I am hap
py to exonerate the gentlemen ot tho
board Irom all blame with respect
to tho "salary oll'cred" 1 am Irco to
s.iy that they were not under any
obligation to accept my terms. Doubt
less it they could have Bcctired tliu ser
vices of a competent teacher for the "ne
gro school" at a less salary they would
have exercised their privilege. Where
were thoo seven hundred dollar teachers
then ? Why did not some one ot them oi
ler to do the pollco duty required lu that
"negro school," und to teacli there nt an
F.very branch of Industry and each
profession have I'lfleient market values.
It others can command Iho same
or more than I do for
my labor, they Imvo a . right
to demand It. I do not propose to baud
down my standard becauso others have
not the ability, or am not free enough to
raise thelr's as high.
I shall hereafter ignore any tiling lur
ther from tliu pen ot .Mrs. II. even the
inevitable last wmt, lor I beg to reiterate,
I "cannot all'ord to light down hill."
