ELEGANT EASTER CARDS, AT
DAILY. EVENING BULLETIN,
FRIDAY EVE., MARCH 17, 1882.
Republican Party Prospects.
The St. Louis, Republican says : Republican
newspapers are very industrious in
pointing out the symptoms of discord in
the ranks of the Democratic party, especially
in the South. This sort of party
tactics is resorted to as a sort of counter
irritant. There is evidence enough that
the Republican party is held together by
nothing but the cohesive power of public
plunder. This may at any time prove to
bo only a rope of sand. Strong as it is has
proven during the venal period of Republican
rule, it is a bond of union which always
has it in the seeds of its own dissolution.
The financial theories of the Republican
party of the East, if reduced to
practice, or pressed to the point of giving
them real vitality, will inevitably drive
the States of the Pacific slope and also
Colorado into tho Democratic fold. The
Republican majority in those States, if it
exists at all, is very doubtful. And yet the
Republican party weakened by the loss of
them, would be in a minority. Belford,
has been openly rebellious throughout the
present session. And the language of
Senator Teller, of the same Slate, recently
uttered in the Senate, is full of significance.
After saying the present tariff is not the
peopledemand, and condemning thepolicy
that would " strike out of existance one-half
of the money of the world that men
holding the securities might have a better
and stronger grip upon the people who
hold the money and who pay the taxes
in this country," he said : "Mr. President,
I was educated in the Democratic party,
and when it failed to represent my sentiments
I had courage to get out of it, and I
propose upon this question to represent
myself and not allow the Republican party
to be put in a position of misrepresenting
the wishes of the great people of the West
The slumbering hatred of the anti-third
termers my bestirred into activity at any
moment. The stalwart element have tho
advantage just now in tho possession of
the executive branch of the government,
with all its patronage, but this serves only
to intensify the jealousy and disappointment
of the defeated faction. Conkling
and Robertson menace the harmony of
the party in New York, and thefierce war
which is now made on Blaine not only
endangers the success of the party to
Maine, but is an ominous sign of general
unhappiness among the faithful.
Even the South, which is looked upon
as so promising a republican recruiting
ground, presents its difficulties. Such Republicans
as are there will prove themselves
of a singularly meek and self-sacrificing
kind if they shall consent to the entire
immolation of their interest and total
sequestration of Federal patronage, which
they regard as rightfully theirs. They
were tractable in Virginia under a great
pressure,, but it will be a marvel if they
view with enthusiasm the purchase of unprincipled
and half-hearted Republican
allies with honors, trusts and patronage
which have always and everywhere been
regarded as the guerdon of party fidelity.
They will begin to ask where the advantage
to themselves is to come in. Tho organization
of the Democratic party may not be
as compact as it should be, nor its elements
as homogeneous as could be wished,
but it certainly does not face greater
nor require nearly so much skillful
management as its opponent. It should
win decisively as the coming contest now

WATERS OF WOE.
Nearly Sixty Persons Drowned ou a Kaft,
St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Mr. John Cain, a St. Louis stock dealer,
has just returned from the flooded districts,
and the account he gives of the
suffering of the people in that region is
certainly appalling. Arkansas City, he
says, is completely inundated, the water
at present standing five feet four inches
in the stores on the main street. All of
the wealthier class of the people, and, in
fact, all who are pecuniarly able, have fled
from that place and takers Te I: uge at 11 ne
Bluff and Little Rock. At'Laconia Circle,
directly opposite from Concordia Landing,
Miss., "over two thousand head of stock
have been drowned, the property of Fred.
Blackburn, the nephew of Gov. Blackburn,
of Kentucky. When the break occurred
in the levee at Rivertoon, Miss., a
barge upon which sixty people had taken
refuge was driven through the breach and
whirled like a reed along with the rush of
waters that followed. No tiding of it has
been received. It is surmised by men
who aro familiar with the section of the
country through which the barge must
necessarily have floated, should it have
remained afloat, that tho people upon it
must doubtless be starving to death, as
they had no provisions on board at the
time the catastrophe occurred, and there
is not the least possible chance of obtaining
any in the swamps in which they
must have drifted. It is more probable,
however, that the barge, upon being
driven forcibly against trees and other obstacles,
went to pieces, and all the people
upon it met their death by drowning.
Several members of the most respected
families in the country bordering on tho
Mississippi river had fled to the barge as a
place of safety, and the announcement of
its probable fate has created the most intense
excitement from Greenville to New
Sargeant Mason has been removed to
the penitentiary at Albany, Now York.
