The New York Post says that as John A.
uigans prominence as a candidate, for J
United States Senator in Illinois increases,
the chances of electing a Republican legis
lature grow less.
A number of good Democratic congress
wen who ought fi have deen renominated,
have not been. Among them is llanning, of
the Second Ohio district. The general is a
Uianof ideas and convictions, and his re
nomination and election would huvo b.rn
a credit to his District and a benefit to the
noUHc.The same day that saw ltanning
defeated saw Milton Sayler renominated,
however, und there is u Kmd deal of coin
fort in that fait.
The Argus-Journal as tl.at i,' M .
Spencer said "the interests of Ph..k
county were hostile to the interests of n,,,.
oilier counties of this district, and if elect, .,1
Lu would 'leg' for Pulu.dii ami let the other
counties look after their own Inti !,"
li is intention was to secure plumpers, and
add that it does not Oelieve he said it.
We know nothing and care less about Mr.

The .Slmwiieetown Herald, u stnumli
DenuMTiitic paper, in alluding to the treat
ment Willmnks received in the Into Demo
crntic representative convention of that
district, says: ,
They hi enemle In the Democratic party want
him on probation with a reprobation clauo In It

litical nlval!on with fear and trembling. We ay

Buotiiek Burr says :
Oberly of the Hri'.En.i hn one of the mot Inter
etliiR famillewo have ever met; but thank to
tho "Unknown'' nouu of them will vote Oberly'
ticket in lhl.
We have not the slightest idea of what
'Oherly's ticket in 180" will be; but a
long acquaintance with him justifies us in
the belief that in having six "of a kind"' he
meditates some deep scheme. We do not
know what that scheme is, but it is perfect
ly safe to assume that it bodes no good to
the future of the Radical party.
The New York Herald says Thurman's
speech '"really means an attick upon the
National banking system, cut in the interest
of the farmers, workmen and producers
everywhere." It not only means an attack
upon the National banking system, but up
on the whole corrupt and oppressive system
of Republican financial legislation. It is
an attack upon the resumption law and
tlie contraction policy of that party the
twin financial evils under which the country
groans to-day, and every attack upon them is
necessarily in the interest of the "farmers,
workmen and producingclasscscvcrywhcre."'
The Democratic party is the party of the
people, and practical men everywhere are
seeking relief through it.
The Johnson County Journal says Judge
Allen will not get a Republican vote in that
county. The Journal's blind partisanship
hits made it reckless. Not over two weeks
ago, ut Vienna, the town in which the
Journal is published, Judge Allen was fol
lowed by Mr. Fisher, prosecuting attorney
of the oounty,a gentleman who has acted
for years with the Republican party, ami in
his remarks Wiok occasion to break his
allegiance with the party then and there,
and it is not denied that other Republicans
expressed themselves in the same way.
The Journal appears to have lost its head.
Usually it is fair in its treatment of politi
cal opponents, and we grieve to see misrep
resentation diluting its average weakness.
Eha-Ili.inoisas has this:
Wc hall expeel to hear, after awhile. Mr. Oberly
hall have reasoned hiinrelf Inlo the belief that Mr.
Allen w a a lover of Ihe I'nion a taunrh Green
back man and patriot during the war.
There is no necessity for Mr. Oberly at
this late day reasoning himself into the be
lief that Judge Allen was a lover of the
Union. He knows that he was; knows that
he was the same lover of constitutional
government ami free institutions then that
he is today; knows that he had the courage
to proclaim great truths at a time when it to.ik
the highest moral courage to do it. He knows
that Judge Allen has been a staunch and
practical greenback man for twelve years,
ami that he is a patriot in the largest sense
of that abused word. It is because of this
knowledge that Mr. OU-rly is now doing
missionary work among the rock-rooted
Radicals of I'.ipj mid Johnson counties,
seeking to divert these benighted people
from the errors of their political ways.
Mil. Chittenden, one of the momiuces
and a leading member of the Colorado
Ifrccnbaek convention, in the course of a
speech accepting the nomination for super
intendent of instrue tion. said : "I am not
ashamed of the platform adopted to-day; I
alii not ashamed of the hint at repudiation.
If we were aide to day I would cast un
vote for repudiation.!!' I could have any in
fluence with the angels such a shower of
ballots in favor of repudiation as would fall
would astonish the world. I would free
the people in this way." Mr. Chittenden
is a man of brains, if not of principle, und
is thoroughly consistent. We can uiul r-

I HE Jit I.I.KTI.N begs leave to differ from ' r
the assertion of the Era-Illinoisan that it
has been unfair in its criticisms of Capt.
Ingram. OiircritieNmsof the ciptain were
based on his public conduct. H:i
made a speech at the court house in this
city in w hich he sought to convey the im
pression that Judge Allen was attempting
to defraud Juckson eountyof his tax ,'s. 15 -fore
making this chargd Captain Ingram
should have satisfied himself of the truth of
what he was about to publicly utter. Rut
i:t his zeal to injure the Democratic candi
date, who is u gr.. iibiickei', and to .i
si.-l his R 'publican opp.,u. ;..,j,t. T!io;n-
a, who is not a gr;".'ni)-uk'.'r, l.v hurled
his charges from the platform. Now ho U
evidently convinced that ho was hasty unl
indiscreet, ami through another Republican
ally pleads the baby act. It won't do.
Capt. Ingram has made his bed and lu
must lie on it.
The Johnson County Journal says:
When Allen hall be entombed In hi political
grave, to never be reurrei'tcd ; where he will lie
vWted by the ghol of the iniiny oldler of thl
District who died In defeiicti of till Union.
When death with friendly care shall re
move Judge Allen from the councils of the
country, he will be borne by Democratic
cherubs to the last abiding place of hon
est and patriotic men. That he will be vis
ited by the ghosts of the many soldiers of
this district who died in defence of the
Union, and that he, in compliance with
ghostly etiquette, will return their calls,
we have not the slightest doubt. While
with us and of us, however, it must be a
comforting reflection to him to know that
among ull his ghostly visitors in the next
world there will not bo a Radical editor, or
one of those patriots who bled for their
country at the cross-roads taverns of the
district. These fellows will abide nt the
other end of the avenue, and the Lord have
mercy on their souls.
The Sangamo Monitor says:
lion. John Oberly, of the Cairo Bulletin. I doing
excellent work for JoA Allen in that dinrlct. though
It was prophesied that he would oppoe him.
Oberly I not the kind of a man to look to fur
treachery and If onie other newspaper men wc wo!
of were a Haunch and able there would be Ic
caue forcotnplalnt hereabout!".
It was the Springfield State Gazette that
made the prophecy, and the hope that Mr.
Oberly might do so inspired Link to give
currency to a slander. Mr. Oberly fre
quently gives the Democratic party the
benefit of his advice and has an independ
ent way of criticising its men and measures.
He believes that such a course on the part of
its members is better for the party and
wiser in the end than a condition of stag
nation bordering on death. He has had a
habit since lie came of age of voting the Dem
ocratic ticket whenever occasion presented
itself, and the habit has grown with his
years. Events have proven the wisdom of
his political belief, and little envenomed
arrows shot at him from umbu-h fall harm
lessly at his feet. His Democratic armor is
not of tlje vulnerable kind.
Tiik Era-Illinoisan says:
It i but a few year ago cince the nominee of Mr.
Oberly' party made the cuiiva of this di-trlct
upon the iue of whit'.' v. black. If our rcruUcc
liou ferve ui Col. Creb ;ale(l poMtivMy in hi
pecih that he did not want to go to eongre- by
nigger vote. It Would appear now that Mr. Allen
! anxiou to get vole of any kind, let thein be
greenback or any other color.
Col. Crebs is not running for congress in
this district just at this time, and if he
were he would he abundantly able to take
care of Radical misrepresentation. It is
true that Judge Allen, and Judge Allen's
friends for him. arc anxious to secure the
votes of nil men who indorse the doctrin'-s
he advocates. The color of the voter cuts
no figure with I!"-. We leave that w here it
iswith t!ie R 'publicans. They have run
the "color line" in politics in this district
since the enfranchisement of the negro,
anil have not hesitated to colonize him on
election days. Rut their rule over him is
weakening in proportion s he rises in intel
ligence and worth. It is this fact that ac
counts for the shrieking appeals now made to
them to stick to their colors. Rut disin
tegration has set in and after awhile we
hop" to see a negro voter have opinions ami
prinoiples of his own.

This is a fair sampleof the argument us"d
by Radical editors throughout the district
to injure Judge Allen. He is denounced
simply lor practicing his profession and
earning a livelihood. That is everything
and all there is in this silly assertion of the
Era. It serves to show, however, the weak

Thk liloomington L 'ad"'i', a Republican
paper of this state, publishes a paragraph
in which the loyalty of Lusk's Oa.ette to
the party w ith which it is ostensibly acting,
is openly questioned. In this end of the state

I Indted, s'i notorious had this bvcotirj that
lie or his fricn Is for him were impelled
sometime ago to publicly certify that ho
was still a Republican, and intended to
support his successful rival, Gen. Smith, aud
he has been killing the general with a
peculiar sort of support ever since. Mr.
I.tisk, who for many years has been a warm
admirer of Mr. Ridgway and his fellow
townsman, keenly felt the defeat
of his friend, and experienced a
shock to his political faith a faith
that has been anything of late but the
stalwart Republican kind. Intelligent
Republicans down here ascribe his assault
upon Col. Phillips and other prominent
men with whom helms heretofore politically
associated to general dissatisfaction with
thf party, and the treatment of Ridgway is
said to lie one of the main causes underly
ing it. However this may be, there can be
no doubt hut Mr. Lusk and his paper are
on the eve of a grand political somersault,
and if lie should elect to alight in the ranks
of the Democracy to return to his old
love The Rulletin will extend to him a
genuine welcome. Few men in public life
keep a sharper or steadier gaze on Un
popular political cut. and no one within the
range of our acquaintance can call its
'hop" with greater accuracy ami certainty.
It is unnecessary to repeat the adage of the
rats und a sinking ship.
The Era-Illinoisan in a labored assault
upou Judge Allen and the Democracy
wants to know what the "Democrats would
do if they could." Oive the Democratic
party control of the government and it will
substitute greenbacks for National bank
notes; it would repeal the resumption act;
it would have silver coinage as free and
unlimited as gold now is; it would make
greenbacks a legal tender for all debt
public mid private, ami instead of a ruinous
policy of contraction or a wild one of infla
tion, i would give the country a stable
currency in amount sutlicient to meet the
wants aud demands of business; it would
pay the holders of the .1.20 lsiuds in the
kind (f money with which the bonds were
purchased, and in which it was agreed they
should be'ptiid. These are some of the
beniticetit reforms that would follow Dem
ocratic ascendancy. Now, having answered
the Era. we desire to ask it, as one of the
loading Republican organs of this district,
a few questions: Is its candidate for Con
gress Capt. Thomas, in favor of the substi
tution of greenbacks for National bank
notes? Is he ill favor of the resumption
nct i Docs he indorse the contraction to
icy of his party, and is he in favor of pay
ing the .1-20 bonds in greenbacks; These
constitute the real issues of the hour, and
we call upon Capt. Thonins, and his news
paper organs, to meet them squarely and
let the people know just how they stand.
U.niiKU existing circumstances the people
of Cairo liave been slow to find fault with
their board of health and have reudilv orer-
lookcd some actions that would not escape
censure under a different condition of pub
lic feeling. Th p- opl stand ready to sup
port the-e gentlemen ill every reasonable'
move they make, or desire to make, in the
ti-ght w arc waging against the ingress of
tie- scourge. Then was acrimonious debate
and bitter feeling in the city council last
night when that body was called to puss
Uj.oii some of the uctsofthe board of health.
It we have been informed correctly the
trouble grew out of an effort to establish a
floating hospital, to be located at sonic
point below the city. There was no op
position, as we understand it, to purchase a
boat for this purpos , and to have it so
that if occasion required it might
be fitted up and made ready for use.
Rut a number of the members it appears
favored the fitting up of the boat at once
atal its establishment at some point below
here, and the board of health even went so
far as to enter into negotiations with Sur
geon Waldo almut the management of the
hospital, the duties of the city and govern
ment representatives in certain events, and
the prices to be paid for the care of patients.
Thedetails of the proposition are not mate
rial to a discussion hero of the subject.
The question with the people of Cairo is
whether the establishment of such an hos
pital is necessary. Will it promote health f
Will it be an auxilary in preventing the in
troduction of disease ? No one can main
tain with any show of reason that it will do
either of these things. The great bulk of
public sentiment, backed by the weight of
medical opinion, is against it. Indeed, it
was supposed the hospital project was aban
doned, because it was thought that
our quarantine regulations which
forbade the landing of bouts,
and compelled the suspension of freight and
passenger truffle with the infected districts,
rendered the hospital unnecessary, Resides,
no one in Cairo desired ti have about laden
with the dreaded scourge located imywliero
near the city. It would be a fruit
ful source of alarm and fright to us at all
times, to say nothing of the diseuse Itself
Not having the hospital, and boats being
prohibited from landing at our wharf, they
would pass on to their destination. With
this, and witli a suspension ot travel by
rail and a thorough guard around the city
to prevent tho ingress of guspected jicrsons,
we would have dono evei j h'ig that )!cs 'i
our power for our protection. And this is
the prime object. The cily can have no it
terest i'l a hospital below heie, for if wc
should be so i"ifortuiiute as to have the
fever among us it would have to be
treated where found, and tho removal
of cases to the hosfihd would lie impracti
cable. If Dr. Waldo wants an hospital to
care for such persons as would be entitled
to t.'cntuicnt at tho hands of the govern
ment, let him apply to the government to
supply it. It is abi'iulantly able to do so,
and probably will if the appl'catiou meets
with its approval. The people of Cairo
do not want it located near them under
any circumstances, and tho. who are
favoring it certiculy do so under a mis
apprehension of public feeling in the
