Johnson County Journal :
We think Oberly can make A pretty pond Demo
cratic speech, and tell the "bear story" "bully."
If ho can tell one "bear story" so well
that a radical editor is forced to exclaim
"bully!" what will bo the effect of an addi
tional Raer story told by the same gentle
man in which can be depicted a soldier boy,
a preacher, a clothing merchant, promises
to pay and legal-tender?
The Johnson county Journal says:
Every time a Republican expresses an opinion
that does uot exactly accord with the Republican
party, and every time a Republican speaks compli
mentary of ii Democratic speech tho Bclletin
marks him down for Alleu.
If The Bulletin were to do ns the
Journal asserts, it would mark down eveiy
Republican in the district for Allen except
those who hold office, those who are run
ning for office and those who expect office.
This does not, to be sure, leave a very large
margin for us to operate on, but it includes
all Republicans who arc men of indepen
dent views and action, and who cannot be
swayed by hope of reward or fear of Radi
The Era-Illinoisian says:
Will Judj;e Allen bo withdrawn? Seems to be a
question that Is agitating politicians. .We have
beard it rumored for some time, but have given
gossip the credit so far. We notice some of our
exchanges present the charge of drunken? openly,
a very serious charge Indeed, and more especially
at this time will be considered seriously by all lovers
The Era-IUinoisan is cowardly and mean
in its attacks on Judge Allen. We know
nothing of the many slanders it may hear,
but when it says "some of our exchanges
present the" charge of drunkenness openly,"
it shirks assuming the responsibility for the
falsehood, and throws it on "some of our ex
changes." The Era never saw it in any ex
change it has received since this canvass
began, and every honest newspaperman in
the district will bear us out in this asser
tion. One of the easiest things in this
world to do is to fabricate a falsehood,
and one of tho meanest is to give it circula
tion. The Era has, among the Radical pa
pers of this district, almost a monopoly of
the small business, and it is welcome to
whatever of cheap notoriety attaches to it.
The evident combination between the
banks of this country and John Sherman
to fleece the innocent holders of the trade
dollar ten per cent of the amount called
for upon its face has raised a hurricane of
indignation wherever the matter has been
thoroughly discussed nnd understood.
These trade dollars are only three per cent
discount in San Francisco, are worth par
for the China and Japanese trade, and so
far as bullion value goes are worth about
one cent more than the legal-tender silver
dollar. When congress reassembles an act
will probably be passed redeeming them.
By that time the great hulk of them w ill
have been raked in by the banks, and the
people will forever lose the ten per cent
they have been robbed of. If the govern
ment had not refused to receive them for
taxes or postal dues they would have had
to-day n current value equal to the "stand
ard" dollar. But then Sherman's friends,
the bankers, whould not have had their
shave, and therein lies the true solution why
of the "trade" dollar bearing the same gov
ernment stamp, coined at the same mint,
having a greater bullion value than its fel
low silver dollar is being dishonored and
robbed of its purchasing power by a viola
tion of tho spirit of the silver bill that the
rich may grow richer and the poor poorer.
Johnson County Journal :
John Oberly Is attempting to make the people
believe that every act of tho Republican party on
the financial question was Influenced by the mon
eyed men of Europe ami America; when he knows
it is fill so.
If Mr. Oberly knew it to be false he
would bo tho last man to assert it. But
every net of the Republican party on tho
financial question has not only been influ
enced by the inonied men of Europe and
America but has been in their direct inter
est. Republican congresses have gone
lown into tho pockets of the people, robbed
them of their money and transferred it to
the pockets of the tnonied men of Europe
and America. The passage of what is
known us the strengthening act of "01) did
this "very thing to the amount of over five
hundred millionsof dollars the demonetiza
tion of silver was effected by a Republican con
gress through a trick inspired and managed
by capitalistsof America and Europe the con
traction of the currency was first begun
by a Republican secretary of the treasury
McCulloch who is now a London banker
and a present European insinber of the
syndicate to handle our bonds. Tho re
sumption net of u Republican congress was
passed at the dictation of the samo class of
men. The Republican party of this country
has been to the capitalist what tho "jim
my" is to the professional. burglar. It has
been used to pry open tho doors of tho
public treasury, and once open tho thieves
have had no trouble in helping themselves.
Whenever tho supply threatened to give
out they hud only to go to congress and
ask it to give- tho people another squeeze.
And a Republican congress never failed to
Capt. Thomas is by no means devoid of
the abilites which distinguished tho late
Boss Tweed. Like him.the boy soldier puts
his money where it will do tho most good.
The readers of The Bulletin have become
familiar with the fact that n fellow named
Schinidtz, of Rope county, who wears the
title of "reverend" and prostitutes it by
proselytizing in the saloons and taverns of
Pope, was supplied with tho means to pros
ecute his missionary work by Republicans.
No one has denied it. Even the Massac
Journal, Thomas' organ, by its silence, ad
mits the truth of what wo have said. IAit
to clinch the matter wo can state that
Capt. Thomas gave to this Schmidt, an or
der on B. Baer ifc Co., clothiers, at Metropo
lis, for a suit of clothing. The order was
presented by Schmidt, nnd tie firm
declined to receivo it. Schinidtz then
left tho store, and shortly rfterward
returned with the money, laving in
tho meantime seen Thomas. A num
ber of honest Republicans when Til E Bul
letin first mentioned the fact a the pur
chase of Schinidtz by Thomas, ould hardly
believe that a clergyman wcild sell his
cloth for such a disreputable nirpose, or
that Capt. Thomas would bo a jirty to such
a bargain. But the stateinen has been
borne out by tho proof given, "he captain
may be able to buy a united lepublican
support, but the game will not wrk amotig
Democrats or Nationals.
Altiioucih The Bulletin hat heard ru
mors of the disgraceful scenes nactcd by
Republicans at Caglesville, or Saturday
week last, during a joint discussim between
Thomas and Davis, it refrained torn giving
publicity to them, but since thse rumors
have been amply confirmed, language
almost fails to properly chanrtcrize the
unfair, indecent and violent concuct of the
Thomas men on that occasion. It seems
that Capt. Thomas led off in tin discussion,
and was patiently and quietly lL-tened to by
the friends of Mr. Davis, but t ie litter had
no sooner appeared on the stand turn the
Thomas gang beg m their game of inter
ruption by hooting, bleating, moving around
the stand, cursing the speaker, indulging in
coarse blasphemy and using exprcsduis
that for obscenity and fil:hi
ness might have hud the'r ori
gin in the lowest "dives" of a metKipolis.
The result of this was that Mr. Dav's was
for the time prohibited from speaking, nor
could he proceed until tho Thomasiti'S saw
tit to leave the grounds. After this, it is
said Mr. Davis delivered a scathing rebuki
to the party that tolerated suclt tactics, ant
his speech had a very good effect. Of
course this is none of our show. We to
tally disagree with many of the wild doc
trines Mr. Davis itdvocutcs, but we firmly
believe in free speech, nnd the right of every
man to address his neighbors on public
questions, free from interruption or violence.
The kind of conduct on the pnrt of Thomas'
followers that prevented this, will injure
him in the eyes of fair minded people, of
whatever political faith.
It has been the ctt rnal reproach of Judas
Iscariot that ho sinned in betraying inno
cent blood. The Argus-Journal of Saturday
last made tin assault upon the county Dem
inocrAtc committee, and based that assault
upon a false statement of facts. Among
other things tho editor of that paper in
speaking of the committee said :
Judas Iscariot could not serve their Interests bet
ter If he was the Democratic leader.
Now wo defy any fair-min 'ed person to
find anything in tho action of tho commit
tee to justify tho application of such an
extraordinary parallel. Who did tho com
mittee betray? In what single point did they
neglect their duty? A committee meeting
was called for. It was promptly held. At that
meeting it was ordered that a call issue for
a convention of tho party. Tho call was
issued. It was published in ample time
for both county and city precincts to have
notice. The Argus-Journal knew, or ought
to have known, that this duty was perform
ed, but it made a statement of Its own, and
having that for a basis hurled its denuncia
tion nt the committee, telling them that
Judas Iscariot could not servo the interests
of Republicans better if he, instead of
they, led the party in the county. This
Judas Iscariot comparison is a very un
fortunate one for tho Argus-Journal to make!
Tho Democracy of this section havo not for
gotten the trick that virtually disfranchised,
so far its that election was concerned, every
Democratic voter in Pulaski county, nor
have they forgotten the actors in that affair.
It was tho merit of Esau that he sold no
one's birthright but his own. It was tho
disgrace of Judas Iscariot that ho betrayed
the innocent. The transaction wo have ro
ferred to is not redeemed by tho tale of im
individual Democrat, simply. It Is stamped
all over with the betrayal of confiding nnd
innocent Democrats, Thus that Judas Is
Ciuiot allusion was very unfortunate.

Republican labor reformer- are to vote the

Does the World Move? The Rev.
John Jasper, of Virginia, says, "Do sun do
move, for in do morniti' it shines on dis
side ob do hous, whil in do ebenin, on dat
side ob do hous. Now, ef he don't move,
how com ho dar?" Notwithstanding Mr.
Jasper's logic, we yet believe the world
moves. When Mr. Jasper's ideas constitut
ed tho popular belief, people thought that
to die of small-pox or cholera was simply
fulfilling one of nature's laws. Now,
through vaccination, small-pox is averted,
while cholera, cholera morbus, dysentery
(flux), and diarrluea are readily cured'b
the use of Dr, Pierce's compound extract ot
Smart-Weed. Does not such evidences
tend to prove that "the world moves?" As
an external remedy for cuts," bruises,
sprains, swellings, bites nnd stings of in
sects, tho compound extract of Smart
Weed has no equal. Veterinary sucgeons
havo also employed it with marked suc
cess. A Wise Deacon. "Deacon Wilder, I
want you to tell mo how you kept yourself
and family so well the past season, when
all the rest of us have been sick so much,
and havo had tho doctors running to us so
long." "Bro. Taylor, the answer is very
easy. I used Hop Bitters in time and kept
my family well and saved largo doctor
bills. Three dollars worth of it kept us all
well and able to work all tho time, and I
will warrant It has cost you and the most
of the neighbors one or two hundred dol
lars to keep sick tho sumo time. I guess
you'll take my medicine hereafter." See
