These tw o great politicians and orators

erful speaker. Carl Hchurz in this can
vass will meet one of the acknowledged
favorites of the West, a man with a na
tional reputation as an orator and poli

ries Ids listeners by storm. Owing to
the mixed crowds they will meet in this
oratorical march, and the ability ot Voor
hces, by his fiery fervor and eloquence,
to enrage the attention and sympathies
ot hearers, it is believed the German
giant, notwithstanding his logic and
faultless rhetoric, will lo?e many of the
laurels that already crown him. The
excitement lit Indiana is intense, and al
though thousands of Germans are citi
zens of that state, they are fast joining
Democratic clubs and carrying the
torches of reform. These men, formerly
the supporters of Schurz, through birth
and party ties, will fail to encourage the
learned German with their cheers of
greeting and approbation, but lavish
them upon the tall sycamore.

The Republicans of the Fourth con
gressional district of this state organized
their convention at Elgin on the 7th Inst.,
with two sets of ofllcers,tactional in their
nature. Throughout the proceedings of
the convention one continuous scene of
riot and contusion prevailed. Two sets
of delegates from Kane county, at the
opening of the convention, demanded
seats upon the floor. Oneot these dele
gations, opposed to Hulbert, was admit
ted. At this point the Republican fan
dango commenced by the w ithdrawal ot
the McIIenry and Boone county delega
tions. The remaining three counties
stayed, nominating I.nthrop for congress
on the third ballot. HulUrt's adherents,
the McQenry, Boone and rejected Kane
lelcgatos organized, a convention of their
own. The split is effectual. During the
proceedings of the convention such lan
guage as "d d thief" was used, and
words more expressive of tho moral deg
radation of some members of the Repub
t.rrtiT or the ohdeb aoiTii.
Ixyalty in its strictest sense seems to
be the determination ot tho southern
people. The bloody, shirt order did not
hardly cause a flutter among them, al
though they knew the bayonets ot the
administration' were being fixed upon
loaded guns, ready lor use at the com
mand ot any drunken marshal who
might think himself personally offended.
Everything moves along as usual, and
no one shows the least alarm. They are
aware that their liberties are being tam

that the blow being now struck may

They also know that not one quarter of

Quietly submitting, they look forward to
the day when the spoilers will be driven

WHAT THE PAPERS) BAY.
Below we Introduce what a number of
our contemporaries, during the past
week, published about the change in the
editorial management of the Bcllktix.
We have assumed a task Uiat may, to the
superficial observer, appear easy and at
tractive. Experience has taught us that
editing a small daily newspaper is more
arduous than filling any department on
a large journal, w here the labors are ju
diciously divided. But since we are in the
harness, we will attempt to make the
Bulletin useful to the Democratic party,
and a promoter and defender of the inter
ests of the people of Southern Illinois :
Mr. John II. Oberly no doubt feci to
day like a heavy burden bad been lifted
off his shoulders, t or several years to
gether he has had the editorial control,
management and responsilblity ot the
Cairo Bulletin, and has concluded in view
of the multiplicity of other duties that
have fallen to his shuro, that he will take a
rest, descend from tho editorial three
legged stool, and until tbc present cam
paign is over, enjoy life, in looking after
other matters, mixing and mingling among
the Sons of the Soil and in travelling to and
fro up and down the earth, like a roaring
lion, seeking whom he may devour some
Republican and other opponents of the
firm of Tilden and Hendricks. He is hap
py, as he deserves to be, for there is no
slavery on earth like that w hich shackle
the editorial manager of a daily news
paper. After the election John will doubt
less put on the harness aalo. Joy go
with biiu. We shall be lonesome without
him, and welcome his return
Mr. Oberly's successor as editor of the
Bulletin, is his brother, Mr. Cyrus S.
Oberly, a gentleman, in every way, well
qualified for the position to which he has
been called. He is a man of tine educat ion,
much experience and has few superiors, as
a writer, in the West. We give him a
hearty welcome, andean assure the read
ers of the Bulletin that Mr. O. w ill make it
not only interesting and lively, but an
able exponent of I)einocrcy.
Hon. J. 11. Oberly, ot the Cairo Bulletin,
retired from the editorship of that paper,
on account of demands upon his time in
other departments, and gives place to Cyrus
S. Oberly. The fact is Mr. oberly 1 too
candid a man for the editorof a Democratic
paper if his own estimate Is correct and
he should long ago have joined tho repub
John II. Oberly has retired from the ed
itorship of the Cairo Bulletin. We are
afraid that John bad "too many irons In the
fire." The newspaper business 1 an exceed
ingly jealous business, and will tolerate no
divided love. If a man would succeed in
the professional and business part of a
new spaper, he must give It his wholo time
day, night and Sunday, must know no
family, no friends, no society must give it
his undivided ant persistent attention.
Any other course means failure.

(Special to tlie Chicago Time.)
XoRrnm.LP, Minx., Sept., 7. About
two o'clock this nlternoon attention was
arrested by the discharge ot lire-arms
across the street at the corner, and all
around the Scrivcr river, and covering
the first national bank. Eight or ten
horsemen, armed to the teeth with heavy
revolvers, were discharging them in
rapid succession, and our citizens Hying
in all directions till they recovered a little
from such an unlooked-for raid. It was
soon known that the bank treasure was
their object point, as one or two of the
gang had entered the bank and shot Mr.
Haywood dead and Mr. Bunker through
the shoulders. By this time our citizens
began to rally and to return their tire, and
two of the robbers were killed and one
horse, when the raiders reception In
coming so hot they turned and lied
south, dashing through Dundas toward
Millersburg to the big woods w ith some
of cmr good men in pursuit. Two ot the
men which got away are badly wounded,
and one of the horses. Several ot our
citizens narrow ly escaped, but consider
ing our uaprepuredness lor such an onset
our deliverance was remarkable. The
saddest of all this tragedy is the ueatli of
one ot our truest nun. Mr. Haywood,
acting cashier, w ho fell in the fearless
and faithful discharge of what he doubt
less regarded his duty. The poor de
luded miscreants shot him because he
refused, on the robbers' demand, to open
the safe. The robbers left empty
handed, minus two men and a horse
dead, besides the wounded. Seven hun
dred dollars reward is ollered, and hun
dreds of men are eouring the woods la
search. As the men killed are not known
to the Minneopolis and St. Paul police,
and as thev came from the southwest, It Is
supposed they are a gang who have Iwcn
operating In Iowa and Missouri. They
are all flnc-lookinff men. The two killed
were over six feet in height.
