Taking the vote thrown in thisJCoiigress
ionol district for Muikey vand Green as an
indication of tho relative strength- of the
Democratic and Republican parties, .the
district is slightly Democratic. There be
ing no Greenback candidate in the field the
members of that party votgd, '.,& general
thinr. aocordintr to their old patty predilec
tions. Certain it is that Judge Muikey
rmbiished bv , Republican . sheets as
an old ' "cormerbead" -and otherwise
slandered, received no support irrim Republi
can-Greenbackers. - The Muikey vote, com
pared with the voto' thrown for, Thomas,
shows quite conclusively that the Green
back movement has drawn most heavily
upon the Democratic ranks, and that while
this third party exists it will serve as a pow
erful auxilliary to tho Republican party.
As American in Turis writing home, is
dirposed to panegyrize the United States
because of tne assumed fact that but a com
paratively small per cent, of our murderers
imbrue thir hands in the blood of women.
This might do to tell in Paris, but thn peo
ple of this country will read such an asser
tion in open-eyed wonder at the man's ig
norance or presumption. We do not know
that any record exists whereby the matter
might be definitely determined; but every
man's reading and observation lead him to
the conclusion that in half the homicides
of the past twenty years the victims have
been women. In no country on the globe,
Prance not excepted, are wife-murders so
frequent and numerous. Add to these the
mistresses killed by their keepers, the rapes
and subsequent throat-cutting or singula
tion of the victims, and you have
fearful 'total that comprises nearly
halt of our murders. Our country
may be, and deserves to be panegyrized for
the love, respect and liberal dealing with
its women (but more is due in the latter
respect) for in no country in the civilized
wor'.d are women more blessed in the af
fections and protection of the men. But
the fuct remains, that, a greater per cent ot
women die at the hands ot their husbands
' in these United States, than in any other
country on tho globe. "A pity 'tis," etc.,
but the fact appears undeniable.
Tax ceremonies that Attend the execution
of criminals in this country are cruel, almost
barbarous. The doomed mm is brought un
der the gallows and placed upon the trap
th&t is to flip him into eternity. There he
i kept, with eyes unbandaged, in view of
.the horrid arrangements made for taking
bis life, until the sheriff reads the long,
and pompously worded death warrant; then
his spiritual advisers sing a doleful hymn;
then a lengthy, and to the wretched crim-
inal, almost interminable prayer is pro
nounced ;then, if the sheriff will permit,
another hymn, a discourse and a prayer by
nother minister. These concluded the trem
bling wretch is at,ked if ho has "anything

;(.:...;,:'iilor sinister, who inj, a) a rule, bu;

tims of our laws, tho mental death they
inflict upon them while standing under the
gallows? ', All tho ceremony can be bot'tef
performed in the cell before the doomed
man is brought out to die; and mercy to
the victim certainly sugncste this depar
ture from the established custom. At a
recent hanging in California the attending
minister outraged all common endurance
by the length of his prayer, and the sheriff
very properly rebuked him, as wo think.
One of the criminals was so utterly brokca
down that ho had to bo supported on his
feet, and, most likely didn't hear a word
the minister was saying. Tho other had
persistently and even rudely rejected the
clergy's ministrations. Under 6uch circum
stances a quarter an hour prayer was intol
erable. At ull events, at the end of fifteen
minutes, and while tin minister was yet
upon his knees on the very edge of
the trap, the sheriff struck the rope that
held the trap a blow with the edgo of his
hatchet, and both men shot down to the
strugglo with death. The minister quickly
opened his eyes, looked down upon the heads
of tho struggling wretches, and with an
"ah, ooh!" scramblod out of danger; gath
ered his hat, and with a scowl at tho ill
mannered sheriff, left tho platform.
THE EPIDEMIC OF TAXES.
It has been very truly remarked that the
people of Illinois are afflcted by an epidem
ic of taxes. It is an epidemic that merci
lessly seizes upon everything that is visible
and much that is invisible. The horse the
farmer rides, the watch that marks his time,
the food that sustains life when he is well,
and the medicino that increases his peril
when he is sick; tho matches with which
the good wife lights the kitchen fire, or the
kerosene with which 'the knowing servant
lights the kitchen and herself as well, all
these are londcd down heavily
with taxes are embraced within
the zone of . the merciless
epidemic ot taxntion. 'J&thiiig escapes
not even the paper upon which the dying
taxpayer writes his will, nor the screws that
fasten down his coffin lid.
It the men and women, companies and
corporations from which these taxes arc
wrung, wrenched or exacted, could but
know the money is wisely, judiciously and
economically cxpcnded,theyoould summon
sufficient philosophy to endure the burden
uncomplainingly; but they are not furn
ished that assurance. Every man is or
ought to be willing to bear an equal share
in the cost of wise and just local and gen
eral government; and here the public bur
dens should end. He should not be taxed
to educate the children of his neighbor for
the pursuit of the learned prolessions. The
people of Illinois should not be taxed from
$23,000 to $50,000 a year to educate the
children of Jackson and McLean counties,
and an equal sum to educate children from
other part of the state, under the pretense
that some ul these children, whn they ar
rive at the age of maturity, may engage in
the profession of teaching. In other
word6, the taxpayers of Illinois
should not ' be charged with the
support ot our normal schools, which,
contemplated in the most favorable light,
are only intended to educate the young
men and women of the State for a profes
sion, the pay und respectability of which
would command a supply of followers -with
out the intervention of normal schools. The
principle is unsound, und the consequences
of its application oppressive.
Neither should the paople be taxed to
pay for elegant structures of grand pro
portions and arhitectnral splendor, for the
occupancy of the poor idiot and imbecile
Hundreds of thousands of dollars are ex
pended for rich adornments, splendid ef
fects and luxurious surroundings that tho
noor reason-bereft creatures can neither
appreciate nor enjoy. Provide for the com
fort of these public charges, and give them
all the care that their condition requires
and therein commences and ends the whole
duty of the commonwealth.
The violence of the tax epidemic pleads
that its victims be spared still further.
Way provide structures of equal magnifi
cence, with ceilings whereon the artist ex
hausts his ttkilland walls wherecn the inter
ior decorator expends his best efforts why
doallfhi, and purchase costlypictures, richly
figured carpets, and glittering silk damask
curtains and vari-colored himberkins, for
tho enjoyment of those who are blind. The
victims of the epidemic should be spared
all these ; and spured, too, the cost of the
elegant turn-outs iu which the keepers
move from place to place, the body serv
ants that fly at their beck and nod, and the
rich viands that load their tables, and fill
the stomachs of tho chronic hangcrs en and
multitude ot friendly visitors.
