now awaiting congressional action tire:
Tho silver l)ill; the tariff unu'tidmcnts now

commonly called the Edmunds electoral
bill; the bill changing our whole patent
system; that regulating commerce between
the States, and the Geneva award bill.
The Cincinnati Enquirer says that the
sickness and deaths among the congress
men arises from the change of habits of
members irom home life to Washington life.
This change is sometimes very marked, and
unless the laws of health are properly re
garded, disease is very apt to follow.
There is no reason why, with proper care in
dressing, eating and drinking, members oi
congress should not b) as healthy while at
Washington as at home. No one of the
congressmen recently deceased came to his
death from aiy cause more peculiar to
Washington than to the places they repre
sent. No impure air of either Washing
ton or the capitol had anything to do with
the death ot any of the deceased.
Thr election in this, the First Judicial
District of tho Southern Grand Division,
will bo held on the 21st day of next June.
The district is formed of the following
counties, viz : St. Clair, Clinton, Washing
ton, Jefferson, Wayne, Edwards, White.
Hamilton, Wabash, Ferry, Randolph, Mon
roe, Jackson. Williamson, Saline, Gallutin,
Hardin, Pope, Union, Johnson, Alexander,
Pulaski aud Massac 23 counties, contain
ing a population of about uGO,000 souls.
The ofliee, becauso of the long period of
service, tho abundant emoluments and high
honor, is one of tho most desirable in tho
gift of the people. The district is over
whelmingly democratic,yct it has never been
suggested that the contest be made a politi
cal one. Oa the contrary current opinion
is strongly averse to such a contest. It is
needless to say what would bo the case if
the district were as strongly Republican as
it is Democratic. ,
DISCUSSION OF THE CYPHER TELE
We think the Democrats in Congress
auado a mistake In insisting upon an inves
tigation of the cipher telegram bugaboo, for
the rery reason urged by Genoral Butler,
Via: that If found to be all that Republican
newspapers claim them to W, they implicate
only individuals, and individuals, too, over
whom CongroiM has no control. But the
discussion of tho matter relieved tho dull
iUOM of the House, somewhat, and for the
first time in weeks the gallery was filled
wfth spectators. Mr. Potter, who acorns to
hare been assigned the lead in the matter,
gave hit reasons for entering the motion.
He talked with great deliberation, alto
gether at variance with his usual lightning
diction. He la usually the most difficult
member pf JlU House for tho stenographers
to take down, uttering more words to the
minute than aajf other representative. After
be had animadverted ignjnat the miHrepro
cautions' uf the press, and squared hluv
" aelf before the country,' lie yielded twenty
minutesv of his ' time to the "gontleman
faom MiwachuWta" meaning Ben Butler.
Thif.wM the moment looked for. Gen!
Butler arose, rested his left hand on the
comer of his desk, crowed his short left leg
before his right, and placing his right hand
on his hip, was a fae slmilo In prose of
Florence in the "almighty dollar. Out
, those who expected to hear something rich
and racy about election frauds in Maa
chuiiUs were disappointed. Ills short
speech contained a l int on that subject, but
it was so veiled in phraseology that few dis
cerned it, and the best caricatured statesman
in America, after opposing the ' Investiga
tion on the broad grounds that It would not
pay, sat down, leaving all who had come to
'see fun" disappointed.
The neit star Eugene Hale, of
Maine. His speech was impromptu, and
the most vindictive of the programme. He
spoke with bitter irony of the "guileless
old man," surrounded by friends and neph
ews, who would now have an opportunity
to vindicate himself from the charges of
having attempted to purchaso through
fraud, with money, tho high office to which
he was not elected by tho people.
Hale was followed by Omer I). Conger,
from Michigan, whose speech was hardly up
to his usual eflorts in bouffe oratory.
To Mr. Hewitt of New York, as chair
man of the Democratic National Campaign
Committee, was accorded the privilege of
concluding the debate. He read from n
printed manuscript a strong argument in
favor of tho investigation, hurling back the
shameless assertion of Halo, that Tilden
was not elected, very directly into the teeth
of "the gentleman from Maine" and
showing that the Democratic candidate
had betm chosen for the place ftaudently
held by Mr. Hayes, by a clear popular ma
jority of more than two hundred
thousand votes, and an electoral ma
jority of twenty-five. Two days after the
election there was not a man in America
who did not know, and who did not con
fess, that Mr. Tilden had been triumphantly
elected; and while Democrats everywhere
were prepasing trriiiparaicies and bonfires
to celebrate their victory, Republicans like
Chandler, Sherman and others, were delib
erating how thi-y might, rob the victorious
party of tiie fruit of its victory. The
stain of that stup.'iidinis fraud, the most
glaring political crime of the nineteenth
century, would newr lie removed from those
who profited by it or from the party that
sanctioned it. .Mr. Hewitt was quite severe,
but not more so than the facts warranted
and tha occasion seemed to call for.
SOUTHERN ILLINOIS PENITEN
TIARY. It is hardly fair to criticise tho first "Re
port of the Commissioners of the Southern
Illinois Penitentiary." but we can't with
hold the remark that it was an oversight or
a mistake of judgment in Messrs. Fonda,
Clements and Lawrence in not furnishing
the General Assembly, and through that
body, the public, the names of the convicts,
their age, nationality, the name of the
county they were sent from ; term of service,
nature of employment to which they were
assigned, when committed aud why.
Without this feature the report is notice
ably incomplete. It is shown that during
the three months ending January 1st, 1870,
one hundred and fifty-eiht prisoners had
been received ; but no man can tell how
many prisoners the penitentiary contains,
and, as a consequence is unable to decide
from tho figures given whether the expend
itures show economical management or ex
travagance; whether the earnings and
and products of labor are above or below
tho average; whether the institution is de
voted to the accommodation of that portion
ot the State for which it was erected, or
whether it is loosely devoted to
thcuscs of Cook as well as Alexander county.
But, as we have said, the Report is the first
one, and should not be viewed with a critic's
eye. It was made under disadvantages
and drawbacks that will not exist, two
years hence, and is, herhaps, the best the
commissioners could do under the circum
NO CONVENTION, IF YOU PLEASE.
Judge Mulkey, of this city, has been an
avowed caudidate for a seat on the Supreme
bench, as tho successor of the lamented
Breese, for a perjojl of more than three
months. While, during that interval, he
has received tho endorsement of more than
three-fourths of all the papers published in
the district, from no quarter have we heard
i a.,, ... .. , . m
a. oreuiu oi opposition u mm. li, among
tho newspaper men directly concerned,
there are any who prefer another man, no
voice has as yet been given to that prefer
ence. Indeed, it seems to be a generally
accepted as a fact that Jndge Mulkey is to be
the candidate for the position. The law
yers of the district encouraged him to avow
his candidacy, and nut until he felt well
assured that there would be no "scramble"
or heated contest, did he enter the flold.
, In view of this fact the suggestion that
comes from DuQuoln. and finds voice
rou'gh the Perry county papers,1 that dele
gates chosen' by the peope, imspwtive of
party, meet at Ashley on the 31st of April,
and decide upon a proper candidate for thii
'position, will not command the favor of
right thinking people. We have an'inti.
tnation of dissatisfaction with' the sugges
tion in. the local correspondence of the
Perry County Democrat. "Rei," writing
for that paper, says: "1'or many reason,
wo do not think tho plan of catling a mix.ti
or independent convention competed of
two or three delegates from each county, a
THE DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN: TUESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 28, 1870.
good one. t Conventions are often , a aoure
of great strife, and are often controlled 1
designing aud scheming men. Especially
would this 15 the case in a mixed conven
tion such as is suggested. Both political
parties would most likely insist on a mat
that suited their political views, and tha
defeated candidates and their friends wouU
feel under no obligations to abide tho de
cision of such a convention. If the R-'
publicans were not pleased with the mai,
they would say he is not our man, and w?
will nominate a nun from our own ranks;
and vice versa."
The suggestion of a convention is so in
timately associated witli Judge Wall'i
name, that many persons may bo deluded
into the belief that it was made with hi
knowledge and sanction. We take it upon
ourselves to say that, if such a belief U en
tertained, it does Judge Wall great injust
ice. Judge Wall as much or more tlias
any other man in the district, influenced
JudgoMulkey in avowing his candidacy
Knowing Judge Mulkey and appreciating
his eminent fitness for th? position, by
reason of his age and great ability ina law
yer, Judge Wall was one of the first t urg:
the Judge to enter the field, promising him
a cheerful and cordial support. It is quite
impossible, therefore, that Jvidg.; Wall
can lend his sanction to any movement that
does not recognize the cnudidacy of Judge
Mulkey. He is everywhere known as a
gentleman of the strictest in' nil integiity,
and, even were it not the case that he oc
cupies a place only one step below tiiat of
Supreme Judge, it would be quite hr.po.--sible
for him to encourage the i;w ff hi
own name or the name of any nth-r man in
connection with the cilice for which Judge
Mulkev is a candidate.
