Lacks up his denial with the Denatures of
fifty passengers on the boat. This is add
ing fuel to the flames, but wo can not see
"how the doctors can make a further move
in the matter. The Bulletin -washes its
hands clean of the row, and can gaze at its
progress with as much indifference and im
partiality as the lady who viewed the com

'Go it husband; go it bear."
One Clark, a descendant of an English
patentee, owns aliout 2."j,000 acres of land
in the Mohawk Valley, which he rents to
tenant farmers. It is the Irish system on a
Finall scale. For the laat half century it
lias been the cause of riot, bloodshed and
incendiarism. The trouble has recently
broken out anew, though not as fiercely as
in former times. The fact is, Americans
do not take kindly to the least-hold system.
The present disturbance affords a tine op
portunity of observing the effects of the
'tenant-farmer'' system proposed by the
JJew York Times.
The Springfield Gazette of the flth says:

Republican caudldute for superintendent of public
Instruction, uy, "he la a oiill.-tnuu and a scholar,
In every way worthy and well qualified for the office

The Bulletin has a desire to elect good
men to office, but it does uot follow that
because it has the courage to speak of
a political opponent in a generous and just
way, that it is "fixing itself to flop." The
Gazette undertakes to measure The Bulle
tin by its own narrow motives. Mr. Etler
is The Bulletin's candidate for Superinten
dent of Public Instruction, and we repeat
hero what we said in tho article from which
thealKivij extract is garbled, that he is the
man for tho position and will hj continued
in it by the votes of the people.
The German elections have resulted in a
manner favorable to Bismarck, if his inten
tion is to secure his backing in the Reich
stag from the Conservatives anil the Ultra
mnntmies, who, united, will have about 180
voles to the 110 of Liberals of all grades.
The Chancellor's negotiations with the Vu
tiean would seem to Indicate u bargain for
tho Ultramontane supNirt to carry out his
taxation and anti-sorialint schemes. The

We surrender a largo portion of our
space this morning to on address recently
delivered by Gen, Logan before the Emer
ald Beneficial Society of Chicago. 'When
the General ignores "the disturbing ques
tion of politics" he is always interesting
and forcible. In the address we publish ho
traces the woes of the Irish race for ten cen
turies with the hand of a master. He holds
up to the mind of the reader the virtues and
glories of Ireland as exemplified in her
best manhood, and renders just praise to
tho Irish in America, beginning with those
who took so active a part in achieving tl.o
independence of the republic and coming
jown to our last revolution, wherein every
battle-field was a history of Irish valor and
patriotism. lie concludes tho address by a
warning against communism and its allur
ing doctrines. The speech is well worth a
In March, 1881, when the Nationals shall
have gained possession of the governnu-nt;
when Brick Pomeroy shall have kcoinc commander-in-chief
of the army and navy and
occupant of the white house; when Senator
Comings (Oglesby's successor) will be play
ing croquet with Senator Houpt on the bot
tom of the scat manufactured expressly for
the then late David Davis,who will have per
ished from cancer on the stomach; when
Mayor Winter shall be chaplain of the
senate, Brother Metcalf at the head of the
currency bureau, and Pat Corcoran running
the government salwn, we may look lor
soino.of these things : Of course, there will
be an absence of all effort there must le
no work for tho Nationals. But two
thousand millions of greenbacks must
come from somewhere. Somebody must
do tho printing. What finer measure of re
tributive justice could be conceived than
that of putting the bloated bondholders in
bondage to the sweating sons of toil, and
make them work off tho currency with
which their own bonds are to be redeemed?
This would be reversing the order of things
with a vengeance, and would sat&fy even
tho vindictive Kearney and lc in accord
with tho anti-Christian spirit of Citizen
Schwab. Tho bonds out, let the reign of
luxury and ease for the overworked Na
tional begin. Coaches and four; teams
in tandem; "old crow" substituted
for "lightning rod;" cheap catawba
replaced by Dry Monopole; harems that
would fill a Turk with envy; days filled
with gluttony and sleep and nights with
revelry and dissipation ;inshort, a full round
of those pleasures that are vulgarly suppos
ed to make earth a paradise and life the
sweetest of boons. This is the ideal gov
ernment which 1881 will usher in, and
those who would be wise in their day and
generation will do well to anticipate it by
setting their household ia order for the
change. To paraphrase the language of a
negro ditty, "the glorious kingdom is com
ing, and the day of jubileo is not far off."
Dowdall's paper, the Peoria National
Democrat, of the flth inst., says:

This is from the only Democrat in the
state who has tho distinction of wearing
a conspicuous trademark "the d dost fool
in Illinois" and it shows, we think clear
ly, that ho is justly entitled to the exception
al isolation. He has gone out of his way to
meddle in affairs of which he is ignorant
for the purpose of saying something which
he probably thinks is smart, but which
wo know to be coarse. If he knew anything
of the politics of this district ho would
know that all the mean attacks
which have been made during this canvass
upon Judge Allen have emanated from Na
tionals. Stclle, the leading National of the
district, in a speech in this city denounced
Allen as a liar,assailel his record during and
after thu war, and purposely, as we believe,
misrepresented him on some of the issues of
tho canvass. Lust Monday night, Dr. In

speech in this rity, and confined him

out on' every occasion; men who left tho
Republican party only because tho fat
places of that organization had left them,
and who find among the Nationals a con
venient escape-pipe for tho bilo resting on
their over-laden stomachs. A mere proffer
of the "pap" which Republicans have to
dispense will carry them back into tho
ranks of Radicalism, and it will occasion
no surprise among well informed men hero
if the class of Nationals to whom wo bavo
referred do not bodily return to the fold
they have deserted before tho canvass has
closed. The manner in which they
have conducted themselves so far justi
fies the belief that even now they aro
acting as tho allies of tho
Republicans and hold themselves ready
to do their bidding. These, arc tho Nation
als whom The Bulletin fights in this can
vass, and for doing this Dowdall, if ho were
not "the d dest find fool in Illinois,''
would give us his applause as a Democrat
and not an expression ot his feelings toward
Oberly ns an individual. lie say that the
defeat of Allen, through attacks m the Na
tionals by Okrly, is a part of the price that
he Oberly pays Cullom for appointing him
to a fat place on the Railroad and Ware
house Commission. Mr. Oberly was ap
pointed to this position its a Deui.xrat, at a
time shortly after Mr. Hartzell had been
elected tosueced himself ;wheu,const-quently,
Judge Allen's prospective candidacy was
never broached, and when Nationals here
had barely an existence if they existed nt
all as an organization. This silly chirge,then,
falls to the ground, but it serves to thow bow
an enraged and envious man, with no guar
dian to guide his pen, can write himself
down not, to k sure, an ass, like Dogkrry,
but his human twin brother "the d dest
fool in Illinois." The editor of this paper
does not assume to be an expert in judging
of the calikr of men, but be believes that
lighter weights than Okrly have experi
enced no difficulty io effectuallysittingdown
on parties of the average Dowdall "heft."
IT did not require the present yellow
fever scare to demonstrate the necessity of
the establishment by the government of a
Marine Hospital at this port, but it has
served as an additional and strong reason
why it should Ise (lone. It is a fact well
known to all river men and to those who
have paid attention to the subject that of
a'l govcrnmcBt hospitals, except that at New
Orleans, along our lower rivers, the one at
this po'nt is the most important, and should
be at all times prepared to meet such an
emergency as now threatens us. The rea
sons for this are obvious. To all persons
along the rivers below us, who would be
i c titled to treatment w hile sick at the ex
pense of the government, Cairo is, during a
time of panic from the scourge, an objective
jioint. It is this place first, and from here
arywhere to escape it. The immense amount
oi'northwanl travel through herenow,by rail
and steamer, illustrates this. Suppose some
of those who are entitled to government
treatment should develop the fever, or any
other contagious disease here, what provi
sion has the government made to meet it?
Let us see what light the debate at a recent
meeting of the Board of Health throws up
on it. This very point was under discus
sion: Dr. Waldo government surgeon in charge of ho
pltul ttid 111 case any cui.es occurred in tho city,
or were brought here, who would bu sent to tho
hospital, he w Ished to be advised before thu patient
wus lodged In the hospital. as many w ho claimed to be
marines were uot entitled to treatment at the expense
of the government, and If sin h case were there, he
would be personally held responsible for the cost of
To the question put by Mayor Winter. Dr. Waldo
said patients could he treated 'it the hospital by any
physician, provided the city would pay the costs of
Dr. Dunning said in case fever should come It
would be murderous to treat it In I place aa thickly
populated as thut In which tho hospital is located.
It would he the worst policy In the world.
Dr. Waldo said all river cases, except small pox,
were treated at the hospital, and when the city pro
hibited him from treating them there, it took on
its shoulders all the expense and responsibility of
raring for them. It waa tho only place ho had to
Alderman Wright said the hospital had been
treating ohnoxlout and Infectious discuses, much
to the dislike; eud peril of tho school children and
residents of the vicinity, The city had built a pest
house outside of the populous portion of tow n not
uu elegant one, but one, It seemed to blm, that was
good enough under the circumstances for the pur
pose. Why could the doctor uot take his patients,
there? lie should not, aaugood citizen, want to
treat them ill the hospital, w here tho live of all III
the neighborhood were Imperiled, lie did not be
lieve the government a so poor or mean thut It
would ask such a thing.
There is one important point which is not
alluded to in this debate. The government
owns no hospital hero. It has some arrange
incut with the Sisters who manage and con
duct a general hospital wherein government
patients are provided with everything, wo
believe, except medical treatment and
medicines. The hospital, it should be borne
in mind, is located in a thickly settled
ncighkrhood. In its immediate vicinity
are) tno Academy of tho Sisters of Lorctto,
the public high school building and tho
German Catholic church, In the event of a
government patient beiug stricken down
with yellow fever or small-pox, what would
Dr.. Waldo do? Ho said ho would treat
them at the hospital, and that if tho city
prohiliitel him from treating them there, H
took on its shmilders all the expense ami
responsibility of caring for them. It was
tho only place, he added, that he had to
treat them. Dr. Dunning very propt-rly
said that it would be murderous to treat
fever in a place as thickly populated
us that in which the hospi
tal was located. Aid. Wright
put tho case strongly, and also said that D;;
Waldo should not, as a good citizen, want to
treat infectious cases at the hospital where
tho lives of all the neighkrhood would be
imperiled. He did not believe the govern
was so poor or meant that it would ask
such a thing. Now theso gentlemen were
right in their views. It is murderous to
treat infectious diseases at the hospital. It
docs imperil the lives of all in the neighbor
hood; but is Dr. Waldo to blame for this!
We think not. The fault lies at the door of
tho government for not being prepared to
meet these emergencies. Dr. Waldo has his
orders, which are very strict, and if he should,
under a humane impulse, overstep them, ho
would in all probability find himself com
pelled to foot the bills. There can be no
doubt about the imperative necessity of a
change in this state of affairs. The govern
ment should own its own hospital buildings
here, and it should have its pest house locat
ed where human life would not be endan
gered. Nothing short of this will answer,
ind it is the duty of our City Council, of
our Board of Health, and of the citizens
themselves t agitate this subject, that they
may find relief at the next session of Con
gress. LOOK NOT ON THE GLOOMY SIDE.
Look not on the gloomy side,
Though fortune may send thee low;
There's uu ebb la every rivcr'i tide,
But tbe flood in Its turn will flow.
Stand not on the gloomy side,
For life hath it light and gloom,
Tin a pathway that'a long and wide.
But fufe to tread at noon.
(irlc-ve not when a cloud may spread,
And thy sun fora season hide;
Remember there's light overhead
Each cloud hath a sunny side.
Life l not a dreary waste.
There are pleasures in store nntrled
That any who seek may fast;
But they're not on the gloomy tide.
Why look on the gloomy sldi;,
When aorrow thy heart doth sting:
Smile proudly for care defled
Will lose it rankling sting.
