A Texas paper, manifestly much given
to sensational reports, says that the verita
ble black plague, like that which raged
along the Volga, has iniute its appearance
in Scott county, Misai.-sippi. It is pro
nounced a fatal contagions disease, wholly
unmanageable. It is said to rage chiefly
among the negroes, and has all the symp
toms of what is called the black nieasols.
Every person attacked has died, and the
disease is spreading. Such is the report,
and having only Texas authority, we Un't
believd a word of it.
"We have had frequent occasion to refer
to the insults and indignities to which our
adopted German citizens arc subjected
upon their return to their native land. An
exchange refers to the same subject as fol
lows: "Secretary Evarts is receiving con
tinual complaints from Germans who are
naturalized citizens of the United States
that their papers are disreganle hy the
German government when they travel in
that country, and that they are ordered to
enter the imperial army. This is one oi the
results of the policy of the Republican
party with reference to our naturalized cit
itcus. The Department of Justice ism the
habit of deliberately ignoring the natural-
and disfranchising thou-ands of German
otm at elections for purely partizan pur
pyte. It is no wonder that the German
H.uuu,..uv ,utiL-mm nuiuruuzirtuw pa
pen which arc repudiated at horn by the
very government under who , authority
they were issued. The Germain in the
United States must hold the Republican
administration responsible for outlay m
their bretheren who visit Genua. iy.''
Tblhe is quite a sum or moipy in bight
in the vaults of our State Treasury, and it
is an iatcretinK study to .,ie tho 'plans
Ja device, of the cormorants, sharks and
, harper among the people to gut at It. At
Republican bow-wow at Decatur, two
bay who were firing a cannon hud their
anni blown off. Jloncy to pay for these
anna at tho rate of $1,500 each, was applied
for, and th Republican majority, without
7. "nant in law, reason or common
cnc, toted tlie 0,000. Had a Democratic
hoy't bead been blown off, and hit widowed
motlicr been left at tlio point of sttirvution,
the .sympathetic Republican majority would
have ' voted her not one cent. Another
party put in a claim for $1,G00 for fish that
had been drowned by high water! They
were low water fish, wo suppose, nnd
couldn't survivo a flood. The State
authorized the building a dam, called
the Henry dam. An extraordinary
flood came, 'many years aftcrwarda
the waters overflowed tho adjacent lands
nnd, as a matter ot course, the flood would
have proved harmless had it not been for
the dam. Thirty-four thousand dollars
were asked for to cover tUrao or four thou
sand dollars damagessustaincd. And from
all pnrtsof the State claims of tho most ab
surd and preposterous character have
been sent in, and members were not want
ing to urge their payment with an industry
and zeal, begotten, may-be, of a hope to
share in the plunder. For a full explana
tion of this unseemly raid it is only neces
sary to say that the public purso strings
are in the hands ot the Republican party.
There is a good deal of quarreling in
the Legislature over the Joliet penitentiary
deficiency bill the majority of the Demo
crats arraying themselves against its pas
sage, and a majority of tho Republicans urg
ing its passage. As neither party will consoli
date for or against the measure, the contest
can scarcely be called a political "squable;"
but it has illustrated the willingness of the
average Republican law-maker to disregard
law and vote away the people's money. The
expenditures which the State is asked to re
imburse, were made without authority of
law in ihter contempt, in fact, of the law's
limitations. The appropriations made to
the several State institutions were regarded
all sufficient by the previous Legislature.
The Joliet penitentiary ring set itself up to
say that they were insufficient assumed
that it would not be limited, but would
expend precisely such sums as
conceived to be necessary. If the
monev thus expended or debts thus in
curred are paid and refunded by the State
the precedent thus set will cost the State
millions of dollars. The time never will
come when the appropriations made by the
Legislature will be held as sufficient. Joliet
oversteps the prescribed limits $50,000.
the State makes this sum good, by what
line of argument can she excuse herself for
refusing to make good $100,000 for the
forest of public institutions at Jacksonville,
$2o,000, to Chester, to Bloomington, to An
na, Carbondale, and to all our penal,
charitable and educational institutions all
over the State. The Joliet expenditures
were made, as we have said, in palpable
disregard ot the law. Let those who in:ule
grants refie?nfc"Krwnra nclS
for waste and extravagance, and in the years
to come "deficiences" will become the rule
and form a burden, quite as difficult to pro
vide lor as the original appropriations. "Sit
down" upon the Joliet grab, say we, nnd
thus assure the managers ot our public
institutions that they possess no discre
tion in the matter, but must live within
'XO POLITICS IN JUDICIAL ELEC
TIONS." Honest men view with amazement the
pretense of Republicans tint they depre
cate political judicial contests. The politics
of the candidate form now, and always
have formed, the controlling consideration
Many years ago the Republican Legis
lature set up a new circuit, composed of the
counties of Alexander. Pulaski, Massac
and Pope, and why? Simply to provide u
"fat place" for a favorite Kcpuhlican law
yer who had failed to make a living by the
pursuit of his profession. In that circuit
were such eminent lawyers as Judge Sloan,
Green ami Mulkey ; but they being Demo
crats were passed by unnoticed, and the
judgeship given to John Olney not be
cause ho. was qualified for the position ; not
became the people wanted him; but for the
reason, pure and simple, that he was a Re
publican! Olney's term of service expir
ing, the bench was thereafter filled, until
jU(hJ(!rcu't Wlis ,V'I'UI' 0,lti 'y 0 Republican
A lew yours later a change in the foim
of our judicial department rendered the
election of a third judge in the circuit
necessary, and Judges Duff, Youngblood
and Dougherty becuine candidatcx. Judue
Uuff was, and is to-day, one
of the profoundest lawyers and
ablest jurists iu tliu State of UlinoiH,
Tho Republican voters of the circuit, thouul
admitting that Duff was infinitely the
superior man for the position, united upon
Dougherty and elected him, for tho solo
and only reason that ho whs u Republican !
In drawintf the comparison bctwocn Judges
Duff and Dougherty wo do not desire to bo
understood as depreciating the ability of
the latter. On the forum or before the juiy

DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN: SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 24, 1879.
Iron a Democrat all his life, and his dis
trict was known to bo overwhelmingly
democratic. In searching out his succes
sor, did Governor Cullom canvass the claims
nnd fitness ot Duff, of Wall, of Snyder,
Mulkey, Green, Wheeler, Crawford, Pol
lock or Johnson-men of the highest abili
ty, and of the most unquestionable individ
ual worth, and moral integrity? Not at all
He passed by, without a word or thought,
all these eminent lawyers, because they
were Democrats; and lifted Judge Baker out
of his seat on the circuit bench, and plac
ed hi m in the seat of tho lamented Breese,
not because he regarded Baker tho superior
man; but because he knew him to be a Re
publican. And by this act a vacancy was
made on the Circuit bench. Did tho Gov
ernor now ignore politics and fill this scat
with the fittest man he could find in the
Circuit? By no means. Ho again passed
our ablest lawyers by unnoticed, because
they were Democrats, and selected Judge
Harkcr because he was a Republican ! All
this is only an imperfect presentation of
the facts of which three-fourths of all the
voters of the Circuit arc fully cognizant;
yet, in the face of them the Republican
schemers and wire-pullers among us arc
guilty of the shameless hypocrisy of pre
tending that they deprecate politics in ju
dicial elections! That kind of dust will
blind Democratic eyes no longer. It is "no
Democratic politics" they would have in
judicial elections and no Democrats they
would have in judicial positions.
Let Democrats, now, stand up for their
rights vote, us Republicans have always
voted, for their party candidates; and the
result will bo the triumphant election of
the Democratic ticket, and a "slap in the
mouth" to the blattant hypocrites who,
while striving with might and main to
achieve party ends, arc crying "no politics
iu judicial elections'."
