TnE Republican State Central Committee
cf Wisconsin, met at Milwaukee, on the 30th
of July, and issued a brief address, urging
consistent and harmonious action by the
congressional district conventions, and sub
mitting hard-money propositions for adop
tion by such conventions.
The State Board of Health should declare
quarantine at this city, and place an in
Kpector on the river and at Filmore City,
the northern terminus of the Chicago, St.
Louis and New Orleans railroad. By a
wise precaution of this kind the yellow
fever, now coming northward, may 1m; kept
out of Illinois. If the State Board of
Health cannot do this, of what use is the
State Board of Health?
The colored Republican stumper, Judge
Bird, has put on his war paint and is
raging about the country like a Comanche
Indian. He is particularly ferocious when
ever he speaks alwut Judge Allen, the
Democratic candidate for Congress. Judge
Allen should induce Charles Nelson, the
colored Democratic orator of Springfield, to
come down into Egypt, and then let him
loose on Bird.
We find the fallowing in the Sungamo
Nonitor of August 1st:
Who will be the next Democratic candidate for
fioveruor. Hon. John II. Oberly urllou. William
E. Shutt? There Is plenty of time to think well of

There is indeed plenty of time for

tncmlier of Congress from the llh IllluoU district
and who at recently defeated lor the nomination
liyllon. W. J. Alleu, propose to enter Into an
active canvass In faver of the nomltieo. This la as
rbould ever be. Democrats, whatever their dissen
sion amoun themselves as to choice of candidates,
"re found nulled whea election day approaches.
Of course. Why not? Democrats down
here always support tlie nominee. They
wrangle U-fore conventions, and after them
pnmetimes, but they always go to the polls
itnd vote straight. Ilartzell never thought
of lxilting Allen. Allen did not Ult him

Mr. Hoitt was at Hodges-Park on the

Stellu captured Mr. Ireland and won him
by strong argument from the Republican

crats and Republicans, promised to give
Houpt a vote or two each, and he is satisfied
that tho Nationals will ull plump for him
with hearty good will. Jloupt believes
that he, Halliday and a Republican will be

The Jonesboro Gazette complimenls The
Daily Bclletis lv calling it a first-class
paper that should le patronized by all who
wish to sustain a good paper in Southern
Illinois. We are aware of the defects of
The Daily Bvli.etis, but we do not hesitate
to say that it will compare not unfavorably
with daily papers published in any of the
small cities of the West. And we may add,
that it is a better daily than is published in
any city of the same number and kind of
inhabitants. Of our ten thousand people,
alxmt three thousand are negroes, ami of
the remaining seven thousand there are not
over eicht hundred heads of families. Of
these about five hundred are Democrats and
alxmt three hundred of these patronize The
Bulletin. The additional support we re
ceive is from young Democrats, young and
old Republicans and inielligent colored
men. But while we thus speak modestly of
our daily, we boast with great confidence
that The Weekly BrLLhTix is the test
weekly in the State of Illinois. And call
ing this face to the attention of our Demo
cratic friends we insist that they should
patronize us should extend the circulation
of The Weekly Bulletin until we have
on our suWription list the nnmes of not
less than 10,000 Democrats. This is a sug
gestion the Democratic Central Committee
of this district Bhould consider. That com
mittee can help the Democratic cause by in
ducing Democrats and Republicans to read
The Weekly Bulletin.
Miss West, a lady who ought to go East,
speaking of Mr. James P. Slade, the Repub
lican candidate for State Superintendent,
of Public Instuctinon, says:
Not the least of his qualifications It the fact that a
year or two apo he married one of the loveliest
women of Illinois, who will prove flitin; help
meet to him In the work which, next November, the
people of the relate w ill entrust to his hands.
Now, this is not a fair way to electioneer
for a man. If Mrs. Slade were a candidate,
being one of the loveliest women in Illinois,
we would vote for her without hesitation ;
but why should we be asked to vote for
the husband of the loveliest woman in the
Stat.1? and where did Miss West learn that
marriage to such a woman was a qualification
in a man for State Superintendent of Public
Instruction? The Beauty admired the Beast,
and every day experience shows that female
loveliness too often runs after mule stupidity
and meanness. Of course we do not mean
to say that Mrs. Slade selected a Beast
when she married Mr. Slade, because, the
fact is, the Republican candidate is a gen
tleman and a scholar in every way worthy
and well qualified for the office he is seeking.
Our intention is to show how unfair it
is to say that a lovely wife is a "qualification"
of her husband for State Superintendent.
If this is to be the kind of a campaign the
Republicans will make for Mr. Slade, the
Democrats can offset them in a canvass for
Mr. Etter who has for his wife a scholar
a matronly woman as competent as any man
for any educational office in the gift of the
people, and daughters not only lovely but
as learned as their mother. We can meet
Miss West on her own ground and beat
her at odds.
Commfntino on the Ballard county out
rage, the Paducuh News says:
Sow, will the Ilri.i.ETi make the whole farts
known, nud w hile stntlnu these "flirts,' will It not
state as a fuct that the parties who committed the
depredations were younx men from Cairo ho went
temporarily residing on this side of the river. We
have heard it reported that such is the case, but do
not pretend to vouch for the truth of such current
rumor. No attempt has been madu to lxuore the
matter. The perpetrators of the brutal outran al
luded to by the Ht'Li.t'Ti should he hunted down
und punished to the extent of the law. and they w ill
be if any of the Injured parties or any other parlies
cognizant of the alfalr will swear out warrants for
the apprehension of the rulllitns. This seems a sim
ple mode of procedure and can be accomplished
without trouble. It Is necessary that warrants
should be Issued before arrests ran be made, and It
Is also neeessarv the w arrants should be sworn to.
If our neighbor will Induce tlie people w ho were to
brutally treated to net oM the necessary papers ull
will lie well, Tome down to business, John, and
quit your "lluuroinbe." If you want the people on
tills side of tlie Jlver to do what Is rl'lit lve them
the opportunity to do It lu a lawful muniier.
We do not cure whether the Ballard
county authorities take any notice of the
outrage or not. In the performance of our
duty as a journalist we published the facts
about this disgraceful affair, gave
the names of the men engaged
in it and commented upon it
without asking either the Ku-Klux or their
vmimtliizers what we ou'dit to say. This
j i '
action on our part seems to have made tho
Paducah News and certain Ballard county
pjople angry; and they began to say:
Come, now ; if vou want the people on this
side of the river to do what is right give
them a chance to do it in a lawful manner.
Get somebody to swear ouVwarrants. '
We have very little to say in response
to this. It is not our business to run up
and down tho land trying to Induce the
people on the Ballard side of the river to
enforce tho laws of their state. That is not
our mission, and we do not care whether the
people on that fside of the river do right or
wrong. They can go to the devil if they
want to, and we shall make no protest.
But the News is assured that the outragers
were not Cairo men. They may not be
native and to the manner of Ballard
county bora, but they are residents of that
county, committed a great crime within its
borders and ought to be punished by its
Notwithstanding the intense heat of
the weather the jHilitician continues to can
vass with great industry ; but the most in
dustrious of the politicians are t' V ational
Grecnback men. They are at work night
and day. They never rest. They take you
into or on to a corner and show you a glori
ous vision of what the future holds provided
their financial ideas become law. Print
ing presses are to be put to
work in the government buildings
at Washington, and little slips of paper,
containing the legend: "This is one dollar,"
are to lie issued to the people until every
pocket is filled and tlie needy nnd lazy will
come rushing to the land of ready-money
where wealth is not earned by industry and
ability, but is furnished by the government
to every one who wants. "Come unto the
fountain of plemy and drink.' Put away the
txils of lalior, and rest upon flowery beds
of ease! What, ho! laboring man; turn into
our padis nnd enjoy life. Here is enough
without work, and wealth without effort.
The fruit of contentment drops into the lap
of lazinrss without plucking." Thus cry
the prophets false prophets, to lie sure. but
not the less potent for that. Thus cry the
Davises and Stelles in the wilderness of
hard times, and no wonder the suffering
turn to listen, and listening learn to lielieve
that the beauties of the mirage thus invoked
from the dreary desert in which they are
walking is a reality. No wonder they fall in
beii'nl these Great Promisers, and walk
along singing alxmt the good -!me coming
for w hich they need wait only a little longer.
In the meantime, what are the Democ rats do
ing? Nothing. They are getting ready to do
something; but they are getting ready with
great deliberation. They do not fear the uc
tive enemy outride their tent: and if per
chance an ardent soldier of the Democratic
army tires a bullet or two at their insolent
columns, he is warned to not do so again.
The generals in command are afraid that
resistance of attacks of the Nationals
might make that party angry; "and this
must not be done, because, you know, they
are natural allir-sof the Democrats." Yes. we
know, but by Jupiter, these "natural allif"of
ours must not attempt to overw helm us by
discharging at us the stink jxits of their
abuse anil the poisoned arrows of falsehood, i
The alliance of nu n who fire bullets, can-
non balls anil shells into vour ranks, and !
industriously charge upon you with fix-d
bayonets and drawn sabers, is not durable.
and the tender advances of such an
it is our duty to resist, and at once.
FLATTKMNO I'ltllSI'KCTH OK THE DEMOCItAC Y
IN THE FALL ELECTIONS PENNSYLVANIA
POLITICAL OOSSIP KEAK.NKY CAPTAIN
KAIW AND HIS VIAUUTS.
Washington, July 31, 1878. Advices
frwm nearly all quarters are to the effect that
Deinix rats will hold theirown in the election
of representatives this fall, and in some
states will increase their number. The
large campaign fund, drawn from office
holders under a system of civil service re
form which was designed to prevent con
tributions to such a fund, has not so far hail a
noticeable effect Uxn tho prospects of our
Republican friends. Tho outrage mill in
this city no longer produces its grist of hor
rors, to be distributed over the south and
sent north as a genuine product of southern
soil. There is hopeless antagonism between
the administration and Radical leaders in
various states. Information received here
is that all of these things, as well as the
state of affairs in Louisiana as shown by the
Potter committee to have existed for years
past under Radical rule, are damaging the
prospects of the Radical party in its fight
for control of the next I louse. The posses
sion of both Houses by the Democracy is an
assurance of good government, whatever
follies the administration may attempt.
(ien. Ben Butler, perhaps the most louse
footed politcal tr.tmp of the period, bus had
n call to speak In Pennsylvania. If Blaine,,
who was born in that state, aud Cameron,
who stole it, should Join Butler in his jour
ney there, what un admirable representation
we should have of the party of great moral
ideas. Sumner and Chase and Fesscnden
and Henry Winter Davis would come out of
graves to look at a sight like that. But
Butler is said to have many suppoit .rs in
Pennsylvania, nnd as he must b.-forc this
time have given up his own presidential
asperutioiis for 1880, he probably goes there
o damage thosy of some one else.
The expected coming of Kearney to this
city was preceded on Friday by tho first ser
ious liistunhance among laboring men that
t i i

showing that his disposition of the money
received the approval of the owners of more
than six-sevenths of the stink of the
company furnishing the capital for the
w ork. In my letter of last week I gave tho
captain's statement of what had been
accomplished in the improvement of the
river, and am sure your readers will be glad
to know that such great results are not
accomplished by the frauds and irregulari
ties so often seen in the expenditure of
The working of the Pension law enacted
at tho last session of congress is shown by
a fulling off of nearly three-fourths in the
numlier of pension claims filed. It was
perhaps an honest effort to protect the
governiirnt, but there s 'cms to be no doubt
that congress made a great mistake in its
methods. At any rate an examination into
the subject and into the influences which
brought alKiut the legislation, will be
proper at an early day after congress
meets. If the act was the working of an
administration w hich proposes to appeal to
the Grand Army of the Republic for a
support which is refused it by all political
parties, -thy Grand Army of the Republic
should understand the fact. Hilton.

And she pressed her kisses on his brow ;

An a'cd one sat by the glowlug hearth.
