See to it, when you go to the polls on
Tuesday, that you are not imposed upon by
a bogus ticket. If you find the names ef
Allen, Halliday, and the other Democratic
candidates printed thereon, the ticket is
genuine. Put it in.
Republicans of Alexander county can,
without at all imperilling the election of
their candidate, cast a rota and a-balf for
Mr. Thos. W. Halliday. It would be a re
proach to the district if a gentleman so
well fitted for the General Assembly, should
fail of election by a majority of at least two
Ges. Bates whom the horny-handed
Greenbackers are supporting for 'state
treasurer, is a retired capitalist and bond
holder. He never performed a day's labor
in his Hie; sad to-dny don't kuow whether
fanners prepare their ground for crops with
a plow or a catapult. But for his money
and aristocratic airs, which he thought
would commend him to the Republican
Stata Convention, he would never have
sought the empty honor of a nomination at
the hands of the Greenbackers. They arc
a class of voters win "stink" in his genteel
nostrils, and with whom he has nothing in
the world in common.
Dr. E. SI. Lowe, of Pulaski, at one time
the leading and most influential Republi
can of his county, is now a rampant Green
backer. His health has been impaired for
some time ; but he thinks if he can encom
pass "the defeat of the rotten old Repub
lican party," the fresh, warm blood of ro
bust youth will course in his veins again,
'and put the "last call" for him away off
' into some of the curly decades of the twen
tieth century. We heartily applaud the aim
that stimulates the doctor to action, and
' heartily wish that his ability to disrupt and
demolish his old pSrty will prove equal to
his inclination. In that event the "politi
cal monstrosity" he so abominates would be
as effectually ''done for" as was the giant
that had to do, once upon a time, with Jack,
the agile climber of the bean-stalk.
WIIY THESE PINCHING TIMES f
With a balance of trade in our favor, ap
proximating the enormous sum of two hun
dred and thirty millions of dollars, with
abundant harvests of grains and fruits and
vegetables, with hundreds of thousands of
skilled and unskilled hands that are willing
to drudge or labor, it is manifest that noth-
ing but pernicious legislation and continued
, Republican rule prevents the country from
at onco entering upon a career of healthy
prosperity. OaTuesJny next the voters of
Illinois mny do much toward removing
. those obstacles, and building up such coti
fldonce in the stability of the future, as will
speedily inaugurato the better and low?.
toped for era. Every one of our public
evils must be laid at the door of the Repub
lican party. That party has had full, and,
until recently, untrammelled control of the
government, both stata and national, and yet
instead of lightening the loads that are
weighing the industries of the country into
the very Just, we find that party imposing
additional weights, as if it were their only
v . mission to drive the poor man to deeds of
bloodshed or the equally dreadful alterna
tive of lingering starvation. This Is a con
dition of affairs upon which the eyes
of tho laboring men bceiu to
open, and if they are truo to themselves
and have any hopes hinged with the futute,
they will go to the polls on Tuesday next,
and by voting the Democratic ticket, take
advantage of the only means in their power
to apply the corrective. No man better
understands the needs of the poor man and
the causes that keep him poor, than Hon.
William J. Allen, the Democratic candidate
for congress. Raised between the plow-
handles, and a hard-worker iu the
profession he has adopted, he knows how to
sympathize with those who labor, and some
thing of the needs which the poor man feels,
but of which the bond-holding pets of Rad
icalism have no conception. Vote, then,
for Allen. Unless men of his character,
who are opposod to tho upbuilding of
a moneyed aristocracy, gain control of
both houses of congress, tho poor man
will'soon learn that the want and suffering
he has endured are but a foretaste of that
which the future has in reserve for him. Be
wise in time, and you will not be compelled
to indulge in regrets when regrets will provo
A GRAVE QUESTION AND GLOOMY
Sagacious statesmen who profess to have
an insight into financial problems that are
hidden from ordinary mortals in the womb
of the future, predict that the immense bal
ances of trade in favor of this country, will,
if continued, most seriously, and possibly to
a fatal extent, disturb the financial confi
dence of all the leading commercial and
manufacturing countries of the old world.
The balance, at this time, amounts to nearly
a quarter of a billion of dollars a year, and
such a balance, maintained for even a score
of years, will, it is argued, impoverish all
Europe and Asia and throw the whole en
lightened world into confusion and dispair.
The immense drain is already falling almost
wholly upon the precious metals, since the
interest upon all of our bonds, held by for
eign capitalists, does not aggregate the sum
of twenty millions a year.
The problem thus forced upon the atten
tion of the financial savanU and patriotic
law-makers on both sides of the Atlantic, is
held to be the most grave and important
with which they have ever been called upon
to grapple. England will be the first to
succumb to the exhausting effects of the
drain, Bince the increasing deficiency of her
home-produced food, and the success the
United States have achieved in competiting
with her mannfacturers, are sure to render
the balances heavier and heavier, and finally
such as she can ho longer honor.
One of our most prudent political econo
mists has truly said that England no longer
defies competition in anything. France, Ger
many and other European countries are
shoving her to the wall in the prosecution
of productive industries, while the manu
factured articles of this country are finding
equal if not readier sale in all the markets
which the ' trade of England reaches.
This fact very pointedly argues the early
distress and impoverishment of the English
people. They have, for more than two cen
tunes, lived upon the earnings of their Bir
minghams, Manchester, and Liverpools,
which enabled them to secure the necessa
ry food for their teeming population. Amer
ica was her chief market, and exchanged
'or English fabrics its corn, its pork and
flour, but now America is her competitor,
and sends even into English markets the
products of our manufactories. The Uni
ted States have attained this supremacy at
the end of a century's effort ; and as it is
our destiny to multiply our farms and fac
torieB, it is safe to say that it is also our
destiny to maintain the position as feeder
and clothier of the world. With undis
guised solicitude an eminent English writer
asks: "what is England to do in the face of
ber increasing demand for food, and her
declining power of comoetition in manufac
turings?" Answering his own question, he
tays that unless radical measuros are
speedily ' adopted to establish such an
equilibrium between population, pro
duction - and commerce as will guar
antee stability of government ' and
tranquility ' among the masses, the star of
England's greatness will be dimmed by
scenes of chaos, misery and disaster that
will shock and appall the whole people of
Christendom." The handing over of the
parks and preserves of the nobility to the
spades and cultivators of the gardener and
agriculturalist or depopulation by emigra
tion, either the one or tho other would be
extreme measures; but to this England
must ultimately corns or go farther and faro
In the grave problem thus presented no
people outside of the English isles, should
feel a deeper concern than the people of the
United States. The interests of agriculture
here are deeply involved, since the pur
chasing power of that country must go
hand in hand with her declining manufac
turing industries. Deprived of the means
to buy, her redundant ' millions must suffer,
while the granaries of our western prairies
are bursting with harvested crops that can
find no remunerative market. Our fears
may have woakoned our forecast in this
matter, but it seems to us that England's
financial condition, even at tho present
time, gives us warning which we cannot
mistake, that our export trade must, in the
very near future, receive such a paralitio
blow as will seriously affect the leading in
dustry of our country, if it do not so com
pletely cut off the profits of the agricul
turalist as to bring distress even in the midst
of our plenty.

Correspondence Jonesboro Gaiotte.l
Every citizen who has the welfare of
bouthern Illinois at heart, and who will be
gratified to be represented in Congress by
the peer of any member in that body, will,
on Tuesday next walk up to the polls and
deposit his ballot for Win. J. Allen. We
need a man from Southern Illinois who is
able to not only represent the people of this
district but equally able to reply to all those
sneering inuendoes mado about the people
of Egypt. Even the Chicago Times, which
likes nobody nor nothing, after a thorough
survey of the candidates of all parties in
this state gallantly acknowledges the truth,
and candidly affirms, that while a majority
of all candidates are political imbeciles, a
few, very few, are able men, and that the
only man capable of redeeming the state
from the odium of sending to Congress a tot
of political adventurers and nondescripts, is
Wm. J. Allen.
ALLEN, HALLIDAY AND ROBINSON.
A JUST TRIBUTE TO THEIR WOBTB.
From the Jonesboro Oaiette.
WILLIAM J. ALLEN,
our candidate for congress, is also well
known to our readers. Nov that the can
vass is closed, we wish to call the attention
of our. Republican friends (for the Gazette
has a good many,) to the fact while Judge
Allen has been personally abused, and his
private character assailed, he has, like the
true gentleman that he is, on the stump and
in private conversations, treated his oppo
nents with the greatest courtesy and kind
ness. He has not stooped to blackguardism
and flshwomen slang, so disgusting to intelli
gent people. He has presented the living
issues of the day in which all the ' people
have an interest in a clear and forcible
manner. He has proven to every audience
that he has addressed that ho is a statesman
who fully understands national affairs, and
does not appeal to sectional bigotism for
support. We have faith to believe that
true ability and statesmanship will succeed,
and that "Josh."- Allen will be elected to
congress by a large majority. To Union,
toe banner democratic county, tne entire
district looks for a good report. 'She has
bridged the chasm in the last two cam
paigns and elected the congressman. Let
us do our whole duty, ana success will
crown our efforts.
TBOS. W. HALLIDAY,
of Alexander county, one of the candidates
for the legislature, is a most worthy selec
tion for the position. He has long had
charge oi a large land interest in Cairo, and
knows how oppressive, bunglesome and in
operative revenue law, which requires that
all real estate shall be ' assessed, in sixty
days' time, every year. There are other
defects in this state law which will receive
the attention of Mr. Halliday in the legis
lature to which he will be chosen on next
THEODORE T. BOBIOTOH,
of Jackson county, is the other nominee for
the legislature. He is a practical farmer ; has
been chosen chairman ot the board or super
visors of his county, and has served in
other public positions in a creditable man
ner. "The." is a simon pure democrat, and
will take pleasure in casting his vote in
favor of oustiug Dick Oglesby lrom the U.
S. Senate. The democrats will understand
that, as printed upon the ballot, it is neces
sary to cast their votes One and a Half, for
each of these candidates for the Legisla
ture, and it will insure their election. Do
not vote Three Votes, or "plumpers,"- for
cither candidate, but divide your vote
equally, and the election of both Is insured.
Union county has the senator, and it is just
that Alexander and Jackson, the other coun
ties in the district, should each have a rep
resentative in the legislature. Do not be
deceived by false reports on tho eve of the
election, but divide your vote equally be
tween Hallidav and Robinson.

Shawkee Silver 'Mutt, Oct. 28,' "?8..
Editor Bulletis :
Dear Sir: -Knowing that your citiiens
take a great interest in the Saline county
silver mine, and believing that they1 are not
aware of its extreme richness, I think I can
enlighten them, after a very' careful'examl
nation of several weeks.' I have 1 made
mlucrology a study for the past fifteen
years, and I think I am' capable of passing
judgment on matters' pertaining to mining;
This mining property is situated In Som
erset township, Saline bounty, III., and con
sists of 80 acres 00 acres' of land "suitable
for tobacco, wheat, corn, potatoes, hay, 'etc.;
twenty acres of heavy' wood lahd--tHe wood
suitable for fuel' and timbering purposes.
It is eight miles from Harrisburg, the coun
ty scat of Saline "countyt, on the Cairo ft
Vincenncs railway, and about eight miles'
from Equality, a town on the Shawneetown
branch of tho St. Louis ft Southeastern
railway. The mine is in a gulch at (he
foot of a range of mountains ''called the
"Eagle range." Tho 'mountain ' rises be
twecn 850 and 400 feet above the shift.
The shaft is 10x19 feet, 77' feet deep.' l!h
gauge consists of quart, and the-kirVla
load, silver,' antimony, tin,"cadmlQm,'o
per, etc., 'and assays from. s)8Q to $100
ton of rough ore. The vein-is a-trne fist'
one, with well defined foot and hangi
walls thirty-four fuot apart on ths 'iurfa
At the depth of sixty feet a drift wis
thirty-two test southwest, and then I'
cut forty feet cast, and struck tho top of tho
lode, whioh was then twelvo feet wide, but
did not find the hanging wall. A small
winze was then sunk in the cross-cut about
five feet deep, but tho water was so trouble
some, they had to abandon the wluzo and
return to tho shaft, where they had better
pumping facilities. They then sunk tho
shaft seventeen feet deeper ; the vein trav
erses half a rnilo on tho property. Tho
, shaft is covered in, and tho engine and
boiler are in the sumo building.
There are flvo houses and two stables on
the property. The mine is laddered and
timbered perfectly safe. They are incor
porated under the laws of the state of Illin
ois under the name of the Shawnee Silver
Mining Company, with a capital stock of
$350,000, and $00,000 reserved as a work
ing capital stock. The surface indications
are as strong as any mine in the United
States, and the prospects are that at a depth
of from 100 to 110 feet, mineral will bo
reached in sufficient quantities to pay hand
BOmo dividends. The greatest difficulty
this mine has to encounter is its easy ap
proach to a large community If it
was in Arizona or Mexico, hundreds
of miles away with such strong indications,
people would come from far and near to in
vest their surplus funds. What it wants is
pluck, perseverance and money to develop
this truly rich mine. See what pluck and
perseverance Col. Fair exercised in sinking
the now celebrated mines the Consolidated
Virginia and California. He wrote to a
friend, "You may not be aware of the per
severance I had to exercise before produc
ing tho millions upon millions of dol
lars out of our now two celebrated miues.
I had to siuk a shaft 1,200 feet without
a trace of ore in sight anywhere, and then
had to follow a small cleavage half nil inch
thick for 420 feet beforo I ever got a trace
of silver. This cost an enormous amount
of money and two yenrs coustant labor be
fore getting any ore." Here is paying ore on
the surface, and a lode that runs for
miles, with indications tha: cannot be mis
taken, and iu my judgment a very large
veia can be struck in at least thirty work
ing days. Your readers niay, perhaps, not
be aware that there is not in the United
States a paying tin mine; but such is the
case, and the government has offered an in
centive of one hundred thousand dollars to
any person that will discover a paying tin
mine. I truly believe Illinois will receivo
the reward, for here are all the attributes of
a well defined tin lode. The rock contains
a large per centage of tin, arsenical cop
per, copper pyrites, black oxide of copper,
wolfram, and topaz, and they arc all asso
ciates of tin. But it wants men with pluck
and a little money to show what this mine
can produce. The mine can be visited in
one day's trip from Cairo. The train ar
rives in Harrisburg from Cairo at 8 :30 a. m.,
then take a livery conveyance and arrive at
the mine at about 10:30 a. ii. This gives
until about 8 p. m. before returning to Har
risburg for the 6 :40 p. M. train, giving am
ple time to examine all points of interest.
Any further information will be cheerfully
given by addressing me at Harrisburg, Sa
line county, Illinois.
Your obedient servant,
George J. Hittixoer.
Two Noted Gbave Robbehs Our
readers will remember the account given in
these columns of the robbing of the grave
of the Hon. Scott Harrison, in Ohio, last
May, the body being found in the dissect
ing room of the Ohio Medical College.
Public indignation justly brands any man
as a scoundrel who will rob the grave of
the doad. But there are two noted fjrave
robbers in the country, so fur from being
the subjects of the peo
ple's wrath, are universally lauded
for their virtues. The reason is plain.
While the former class steal the dead bodies
of our loved ones to submit them to the dis
secting knife, these only rob the graves to
restore the living victims to our hearts and
homes. Their names Dr. Ilerco's Golden
Medical Discovery and pleasant Purgative
Pellets are household words tho tforld
over. The Golden Medical Discovery cures
consumption, in its early stage, and all
bronchial, throat and lung affections.
Pleasant Purgative Pellets are the most val
uable laxative and cathartic .
Factort Facts. Close confinement,
careful attention to all factory work, give
the operatives pallid faces, poor appetite,
languid, miserable feelings, poor blood, in
active liver, kidneys and urinary troubles,
and all the physicians and medicine in the
world cannot help them unless they get out
doors or use Hop Bitters, mado of the pur
est and best remedies, and especially for
such cases, having abundance of health,
sunshine and rosy cheeks in them. None
need suffer if they will use them freely.
