DirirrnEnu has Ticcomo epidemic in
Anumosa, Iowa, ami there are many hun
dred cases in that place ; several deaths
have occurred. The public schools are all
closed, and the Mayor has suggested that
signals he shown in order that those who
are free from the disease shall be able to
keep out of its range.
A new definition has bee" sieI1 to the
word Chicago. John Jenkins, of Cass coun
ty, Michigan, says that when he was a hoy
he was entirely familiar with the languago
of the Indians in his neighborhood, and
that, fifty years ago, Chicago was known as
Tuck-Chicago Tuch meaning wood, or tim
ber, and Chicago meaning "gone" the
whole signifying "timber-gone. It strikes
us that tho designation admits of too gen
eral an application to apply exclusively to
the site of Chicago. It would have applied
cijally well to any other portion ot prairie
laud, either in Illinois or Michigan. The
Jenkins' definition wont do.
Last Thursday night an Iowa farmer,
living near Wassiuville, tuuk bis axe, and
quietly gaining the sleeping apartment of
his eighteen-year old daughter, split her
hea'd wide open. The paper from which
we obtain this information, adds that
the farmer was "unusually fond of his
family." Ho must have been a doting
father, anyhow. And, judging him by the
6ame rule, he thought a great deal of him
self, tor, after killing his daughter, he drew
a pistol, and putting a bullet in his brain,
died a few hours afterwards. As his wife
escaped, it is reasonable to conclude that
he was not "very fond of her."
Barratry is a crime against which the
statute of nearly every state in the Union
denounces a penalty; every community in
the country contains from one to a dozen
men who have rendered themselves liable
to prosecution under the law, yet, only
three men in the United States have been
prosecuted successfully, during the past
hundred rears. Barratry is defined as "the
stirring up, exciting and v promoting law
suits, fomenting neighborhood quarrels, and
by false and vexatious stories disturbing
the quiet and good feeling of the people."
No community is without itsbarrutrist, and
the wonder is that sucli fomcnter of pub
lic contention and ill-will ore not nmro
Senator Riddle, of Chicago, is the man
who in the Republican caucus, publicly do
nounced Logan as a salary grabber, and ns
a man, who, In tho United States Senate,
would bo a standing disgraco to tho great
State of Illinois. All this and much more
Senator Rtddlu said, and then, raising his.
. hand aloft, he added, withgrciitnnd solemn
tmphaais, that never, under any circum
stances, would he voto for John A. Logan
' The day following, mid tho next, even up to
tho day of tho election Mr. Riddle was
fierce in his denunciations of Logan as
man who was by nature, habit and educu
tlon wholly unfit for tho United States Sen
ate. ' And yet, before tho echoes of tlicso
hostile words had fairly tiled away, this
ome Sonator Riddle, in his place iu the
' Senate, voted foh John A. Logan. Riddle,
was too much of t craven to vindicate his
own manhood, nnd there, in the presence
ot the "representative wisdom and dignity",
"of the State of Illinois ho shamefully
.'qhewed and swallowed bin own words, Mr.
' Riddle, of the Chicago district, nuty do
uch a thing with Impunity ; but if Senator
Wawlof the 150th district had done so,(vhich
he U iui'apablo of dolngj his constituents,
iu less than than twenty hours thereafter,
would have been signing a demand for his
resignation. Talk about Logan in the
United States Senate being a disgraceto Ill
inois! "What is Kiddie, himself, in tho
Senate of Illinois?
Now that the Missouri Statu Asylum for
the Insane, at St. Joseph, has been destroy
ed by fire, the people of Southeast Missouri,
who have never enjoyed a dollar of State
patronage, until Cape Girardeau secured her
Normal School, should insist that the new
asylum be built in some of the Wor
counties. "With abundant means for egress
and ingress, both by river nnd railroad,
with exhaustless supplies of lood, a healthy
climate, etc., uo place iu tho State is better
adapted for such an institution than the
town of Charleston. The St. Joseph's
building was a total loss, and as a conse
quence an entirely uow one must bo erect
ed.. Let the southern members of the
General Assembly, now in session, put in
their work, and the $300,000 the asylum
will cost, will be expended in Southeast
Representative Ellis, of Louisiana, has
been regarded as n dangerous extremist,
and heartily denounced as such by northern
Republicans. But the fact that he was so
regarded aud so denounced was no conclu
sive proof that he was properly judged.
Only a few days ago, from his place in the
House, he declared that as regards the
claims which are forever being urged by
"loyal" claimants, and known as war claims,
let me say that I, for one, am willing here
and now to vote for a constitutional amend
ment which shall close the books and for
ever settle the accounts between those
"loyal" claimants and the government." If
other Southern Democrats will say as much,
we will have that disturbing etentent, the
so-called Southern' claims, removed form
the arena of politics, and thus will rob the
Republican party of the stock in trade
upon which they are thriving, and hope to
thrive until after 1SS0.
It is held that our people are returning
to the economical ways of our fathers, be
cause almost everywhere in the North nnd
East, the business is descending to the uickle
and penny plan. An impecunious traveler
in referring to this matter, says that at one
tim? in California and the "West, when
money was plenty, no denomination of the
currency was, used less than .'two bits'
twenty-five cents. As money got more
scarce, smaller coins were circulated, nnd
now nearly the whole of the Republic is
going down -into the "penny system." It
will be a great degradation for a blustering
citizen who used to fliuyr down 'two-bits'
lor a drink, to succumb to circumstances
and gather iu copper change in his old age,
but there is no more positive sign that
economy, close-dealing and small margins
are being resorted to than this return to
coppers' and an evident attention to small
things. After this comes a renewal of
Tueke is uo fact better known to ob
serving men than the fact that, until the
Democratic party gained control in the
House of Congress, the South was full of
Republican claim agenls, working up
"loyul" claims against the government.
Kellogg, now in the United States Senate,
is deeply interested in $700,000 of such
claims, and other "loyal Southerners" hold
amounts ranging from $23,000 to $500,000,
aggregating many hundreds of millions.
Before tho Democratic party gained posi
tion as the guardian of the people's money,
tho Republican party hud paid not less
than a hundred and fifty millions of dol
lars of these rascally claims; and hud not
the Democratic Houso choked oil' tho treas
ury raiders, the treasury would have been
plundered of more than twice that sum.
And uow that the "game is up" the very
Republican leaders who hud their arms,
elbow deep in the treasury, are raising tho
hue and cry that "the Democratic party in
tends to pay the rebel war claims!" 01
course this is a malicious falsehood, the
out-cry of foiled and desperate plunderers.
Hut the Democratic Hotiso owes it to the
party to denounce it as such, nnd should
do so at once.
The Northern and Southern wings of the
Democratic party are slumbering on tho
apex ot a volcano, a fatal belching forth of
whose fires may bo excited at any moment,
If Southern Brigadiers in Congress insist
upon the payment of tiny portion of tho Ho
called rebel war claims, the volcano will be
come active, casting a wing of the party to
either side of it. Upon the rebel claims'
question there can never bo uny ugroeineiit
or compromise. It must be flatly and un
conditionally ignored, and put entirely out
of night. And tho dictatorial npirit of
Southern Democrats, becoming more nnd
more dctestuhlc, 0t late, must be bridled
uud held In check. The threat that they
will "set up Ims'uHs'for themselves" warcM
nobody; but excites a ive!itiucnt tint b'.tbi
no good to ti. pl;1v, -pi,,, ivmm rutk'
party of tl. N0,h, relieved from its psi".
Hon of apnl.U ft,r the !outh. would,
within the next 'two years, beome' the
ascendant party in a majority of the North
ern States. Tho Democratic party of the
South, standing alone, would Unvite the
presence of federal troops at every State
capital, nnd bring upon that section again
all the excesses and horrors of the carpet
bagism, that characterized the decalo end
ing with the last presidential election In
viow of consequences so dire to themselves,
our Southern brethren should tone down
their dictatorial spirit, somewhat, and it
they will argue themselves into the conclu
sion that Northern Democrats are much
less dependent than themselves, they will
argue wisely, and arrive at a truth tlut will,
if properly weighed, exert a whclesome
