BtifiVr the extreme penalty of the law if
Governor Cullon does nial interfere. That
Burklow does not deserve some punishment
for the crime committed hy him no one
asserts; but hundreds of people two out of
every three of the people of Southern Illi
nois will regard his execution on the gal
lows as a palpablo judicial murder. Of
course the judge and jury acted conscien
tiously; but lioth judge and jury have, By
requesting the governor to commute the
sentence to imprisonment, admitted that
they were too severe.
Gen. Logan asserted in his speech at
Murphy si toro that the Democrats intended
to revolutionize the government hy investi
gating the presidential rascality ami put
ting Mr. Hayes out of the presidential
office. The General knows that Mr. Hayes
obtained place by frauds that ought to
consign the rascals guilty of them to the
penitentiary; and still he insists that, even
if it should le demonstrated that President
Hayes was a party to the rape of the high
office he does not fill, it would be a revolu
tionary act to put him out. We do not le
lieve this. If it is shown that President
Hayes was one nf the men who roblted the
IK'ople of their choice for president, lie
should be impeached and put out of office
in the manner prescribed by law.
Henrj M'utterson, tlie brilliant but rather
tonguey editor of the Louisville Courier
Journal, publishes an open letter to Abram
S. Hewitt, in which he says : ' '"You know
and I know that Mr. Tilden disapproved
the Electoral bill. You know, ond I know,
that you spent Sunday, the 14 th of January,
in New York, and that he made his objec
tions sufficiently known to you; that on
Monday evening, the ,15th of January, a
meeting of the committee of advisement
considered the terms of the bill hypotheti
cal!' submitted to it; that at that meeting
I opposed them; that you were dumb as an
oyster as to Mr. Tihlcn's opinion, and that
finally we all agreed to support the measure,
most of us lielieving it the emanation of
our chief. I have charged, and do charge,
that your failure to tell what Mr. Tilden
had said to you the day before was the
practical suppression of his more sagacious
counsels, and to all intents a betrayal to
your friend. Now, I repeat and declare my
charge of personal dishonor upon you, and,
at you don't wish to tight it out, and I am
sure I don't, I will make you this proposi
tion: You select two members of the
committee oi advisement, of which both of
us were members; and I will select two.
Tho four shall select a fifth, and if I do
not make my charge good, I will make you
a public apology."
LOGAN AND THIS DISTRICT.
In a speech made at Murphysloro a few-
days ngo, General Logan gave notice to the
Democracy that he intended to make-a
thorough canvass of this congressional
district, ami that it was the intention of
the Republicans to redeem it hy a decisive
majority. Some of our good friends in this
part of the State disparage the abilities of
Gen. Logan and assert that lie lias no influ
ence among the people of this section.
AVe do not agree with them. Ve
Itelicve ha is a man of very marked ability
and that In: can do much iu the work of
arousing the Republicans of
this district into dangerous activity.
We therefore believe that the gen
eral's notification should not be unheeded.
The Democrats should get ready for the
dcsirf-rate struggle, and make sure a glori
ous victory by a complete organization.
We can. with proper management under un
able leader, defeat the Republicans
by a decisive majority, even it Gen.
Logan does blow his bugle and
rally hisliovs. We have the Radicals at a
disadvantage, and we should not endanger
our chances of success by any mistake or
by a neglect to do our duty. We should
get ready for a tierce battle, and by good
generalship give Radicalism in the Eigh
teenth district its Sedan.
THE STOIU OF MRS. JEXKS.
The raciest, sauciest, sharpest ami most
unreliable witness examined by the Potler
committee was Mrs. Jeiik, of Louisiana.
She arrived in Washington accompanied
by her husband, the captain, and has since
her appearance as u witness been the
observed of all observers, the most-talked
about woman iu the country, und the coolest-headed
person in Washington.
Her story is peculiar. If she is telling
(lie truth Sherman did not write the letter
produced by Anderson jimmis'ing u con
sideration for the proer return of East
Feliciana iiuish, and Anderson is guiltless
of a falsehood iu asserting that he did.
She met Weber, Anderson's colleague in
the election manipulation business, near
the St. Charles hotel in New Orleans, at
the time the visiting statesmen wcro there,
and lie told her that he and
Anderson had determined to ask of Mr.
Sherman a written guarantee for the proper
return of their parish. She consented to
carry the letter to Mr. Sherman., She took
it; opened it; read' it; concluded that
Weber and Anderson had no right to ask
such a guarantee of Sherman ; wrote or got
some man to write an answer to it the
now famous Sherman letter and delivered
the answer to Weber as Shcfman's reply to
a letter he hud never een. -
This is, in brief, her story. But sho lias
contradicted herself in many particulars,
and it is generally admitted by men of all
parties at Washington that she has retailed
a lie to save the reputation of the Secretary
of the Treasury.
THE TROPOSED COMPROMISE OF
OUR CITY DEBT.
This proposition has been made by a re
ponsiblc combination of monied men:
If the city of Cain) will agree to issue
new six per cent bonds for half the princi
pal and accrued interest of her present
eight jar cent lxuids, we willlako the new
ond give for them the old bonds.
(jHow can these men get the old lond?
They know, probably. Certainly .his
need make no difference to us.
But, it is objected, we cannot pay the
new bonds the burden will be to) great
and we might as w?ll therefore repudiate
the whole of them. This is a shameful de
claration; and there is no sense in it. We
don't' pay because we can't. Very well ;
but we will always be at law; will always
lie at great expense; will always bo defeat
ed in most of the cases; will finally k' com
pelled to pay or else give up all k ope of
making Cairo more than a miserable little
village peopled by repudiators, shunned by
business and in even1 way an unfit placeof
residence. But why do the repudiatorsdesire
a large debt to repudiate f We wish to put
them to less trouble than they will have if
the debt is not reduced. It is as easy to
repudiate a small debt as a large one; but
if in an attempt to repudiate our debt the
courts should not permit us, it will le ap
parent to all that it would be easier to pay
a large debt than a larger one.
Indeed, we cannot understand why there
is any objection to the proposed comprom
ise ; and we shall be surprised if the voters
of Cairo defeat the ''For issuing the Bonds'1
ticket at the election to-morrow.
JI01WD CITY JUNCTION.
LOCAL 00SSIP BATTLE OF THE BRAVES
TUE WHEAT YIELD IN SOUTHERN ILLINOIS.
From Our Correspondent.
Moi'ND Citt Junction, June 24th.
Mr. Clias. W. Argenbright, who has
been basking in the tropics during the past
three years, has just returned, looking as
roundly und openly O. K. as his friends in
general and the young ladies in particular
could wish to see him.
Miss Spencer, who has lx-en enjoying a
pleasant visit among her friends in St.
Louis, has returned with the most highly
apiroved metropolitan airs, greeting every
body and bowing as sweetly and blushing
ly as a June rose-bud.
"Punk" Wheeler, who kindly con
descends to act as chapcrone to ladies un
accompanied by their gallants, tried on
Sun day evening to revive a custom known
in his grand-father's hot days, by walking
in his shirt-sleeves In-side a lady. Owiny
to the unpopularity of the style among
young gentlemen that own summer coat.,
he failed ignomoniously.
A sign reading "leave the dead their
roses" should be posted up in a eoncpicous
place in Beech Grove Cemetery. It might
touch the hearts of the lady and gentleman
vandals who steal flowers from that silent
resting place. There are millions of roses
outside for the living, and love waters the
cemetery flowers with tears. L'juvc the
deail their roses.
Sunday night, a colored individual
named Murray, fought nobly. He had
stated in public that he "could whop any
tree injuns alive," and the three for whom
the challenge was meant came rushing into
town Sunday night, red-eyed with fire-water,
and sending a succession of startling
whoops right into Mr. Murray's ears. Al
though Mr. Murray had been to church,
and the sand was consequently low in his
gizzard, yet he girdled up his loins for the
winning of one of the noblest of human
victories. He determined to conquer him
self to tear himself away, in short, from
that opportunity to "whop" the aborigines.
Of the exact time it took him to "do" the
half mile which stretched between his
hack-door and the brush, your reporter
was not informed. It is sufficient to state
that the speed of his number twelves was
such as to elicit howls of pure admiration
from the redskins in bis rear.
It is easy to see that the crop reports
from the wheat fields of Southern Illinois
is worth but little to the general reader.
Right before my eyes, nil through the
harvest, wer" both the 'newspaper reports
and the wheat-fields. "Average." and
"fair to excellent," and other synonymous
words and clauses qualifying "the crops"
don't read correctly to anybody who knows
much about the wheat and the adjectives
of the present season iu these parts. The
reKirts are "chnlf." Let all the wheat
grown this year in Illinois, between the
parallels of Du (Jtmin ami Cairo, ho meas
ured, and it will be but little very little-
larger than half the crop of, last year. And
farmers between the two points will wiy
that I am rUrht.
Paul Surreu .
I COST I NT ED FROM FIRST PAOE.
t) rough a conclusion drawn by this witness,
Mr. Butler contended that he hud a rigbt
to ascertain which of tho witness' tw) en
tirely dilfcrent stories lie would give credit
to. After some further discussion, tho ex
amination was resumed and Gen. Boynton
said he never told any one that fha presi
dent's failure to deny the chaw led him to
deduce the inference ho hud drawn.
Q. Did you not state to somelnxly in
some form of words that Anderson hud
some political knowledge .which it was
best should not be known? A. I did not
no state. I may luive M't that impression.
Mr. Butler proreedwl to ask some further
questions in a rathrr loud tone of voice,
when Gen. Boyntct? objected to his manner
if examining him, chnrging him with anut
tenipt to bullduw him. Suid Gen. Boyn
ton: I am no: used to that sort of thing,
and will not take it from anylsxly. The
oflier meinVrs of the committee have
treated me iike a gentleman, and Gen. But
ler has iu ted like a rowdy. Sensation.
This raised quite a commotion, and the
chairman asked Mr. Boynton very blandly
whether he had ever before lieen a wit
ness, to which the general replied : Oh, yes;
Mr. Butler said to Boynton that his talk
ing iu so loud a voice was front a considera
tion for Boynton 's hard hearing, an infirmi
ty from which both suffered.
Mr. Boyuton I ant very sorry, general.
Q. You have Uvn on intimate terms
with the president for some timer A. I
have not been three times at the White
House since his inauguration, except when
Y. How often have you been sent for?
A. AlKittt a dozen times.
Mr. Butler continued for some time to
interrogate Gen. Boynton with reference to
the latter's conversation with the president,
but no new facts were elicited. Boynton
said the first he heard of the existence of
the Matthews letters and the Sherman let
ter, was from Mr. Gibson, corresMindent of
the New York Sun.
Gen. Boynton was then excused until to
morrow, and the committee then went into
executive session, after which it adjourned
until 10:30 a.m.
Liver is Kino. The liver is the imperial
organ of the whole human system, as it con
trols the life, health and happiness of man.
When it is disturbed in its proper action,
all kinds of ailments are the natural result.
The digestion of food, the movementsof the
heart and blood, the action of the brain and
nervous system are all immediately connect
ed with the workings of the liver. It has
been successfully proved that Green's Au

result from an unhealthy condition of the
