Cannon, the Mormon delegate in Con
gress from Utah, has made a strong appeal
to President Hayes to pardon the polygam
ibt Reynolds, who because of hU infamous
polygamous practices, has been sentenced
to two years'imprisonment in the penitenti
ary, and to pay a line of 500. Cannon in
sists that polygamy is a part of the Mor
mon's religion.The sane plea might be urged
in justification of any othercrime. Religion
is a theory, a creed embodying articles of
faith. Polygamy is simply licentiousness,
and flies in the face of the laws of every
enlightened country on the globe; und the
njtion that Reynolds should be pardoned
because he says he believes it is right for a
man to make a best of himself is a little
too thin, even to blind the weak inmate of
the white house. And Mr. Cannon pleads
for Mr. Reynolds' release for other reasons,
viz : That his imprisonment is the inuugu
ration of a scries of gentile persecutions
that will inevitably compel the Mormon
people to take arms in their hands and fly
to the mountains! It is really
wonderful that this ill - disguised
that didn't brine Mr. Hayes to
terms. A gang of out-laws in arms against
the government! If Mr. Cannon thinks
his people can thus compel a recognition
of their right to violate the law, with im
punity, let him try that little game on just
as soon as it suits him. The Fed
eral Barkis is entirely willing.
McLane, a Democratic member of the
House ot Representatives, introduced a bill
for a law to prevent federal officers, con
tractors and claimants from contributing
money, either under duress or voluntarily,
to election corruption funds. Honest men
'would naturally suppose that a bill of that
i character would command the support'of
. every man in Congress; but the record tells
no such story. It had not been before the
House an hour before the leading
Republican from the Northwest, Conger,
- of Michigan, denounced it as "infamous law,
- conceived in the interest of the Democratic
party,'1 and hi "the most shameless piece of
deniagoguery ever att.-mpted in Congress:"
What do decent nu-n of either party, think
of that? An effort to secure a la to pre
vent the plundering of federul office hold--r,
that a fund may be created to corrupt
; TOtcrt and carry elections in the interest of
iho party in power, is denounced as iufum
us; and from all parts of the R puh'.iean
i!do of the House came the retponse "in
famous!" If the Republican representa
tive in Congress mr.y, without rebuke
from the people, follow the lead of the
',0hAneUM Conger; if tfcey luny utx,i.,y in
sist upon tho right to provide money to cor
rupt voters, and place Boldiers, marshals
und supervisors at the noils to disfranchise
sucli voters as they may fail to corrupt if
tiip len. lera of the rmrtv nmv do this, it is
time, wo think, tor the good men of tho
country to indulge in the. gravest forebod
ings concerning tho Republic's future.
If tue Sporlbrd-Kellogg investigation
serves no better purpose, it lias disclosed
to the world tho character of the human
monsters who held Louisiana by the throat
during the awful reign of Hepljlil'un car'
petbaggcry. The black devils who com
posed a majority of the so-called Packard
Legislature, appeared before the committee
in Washington and made a joke of the fact
that they had voluntarly committed perjury
before New Oorleans authorities; that they
had accepted bribes, and thought it no
crime to swear to a lie, if thereby they
could gratify curiosity. And it was crea
tures of this character the army
under Grant maintained in power
in Louisiana -confessed villains,
who roW)cd and plundered the people, and
saddled upon them a debt that the present
generation will not live to wipe out. Con
templating what Louisiana suffered at the
hands of these villains, who can wonder
that hqr honest men, her property holders
and good citizens were restive and at times
violent? The wonder is, indeed, that they
did not enforce the establishmeut of mar
tial law. The rights of person would have
been' circumscribed; but the rights of
property, that were so fearfully disregarded,
would have been respected, and probably
THE NEW YORK SENSATION.
Most of our readers are doubtless famil
iar with the details of the; murder of Mrs.
Dr. De Forest Hull, of New York. At
day light on the morning of the 13th she
was found dead in her bed, her arms tied
together, her ankles tied to either side of
the bed, a gag in her mouth and her head
bandaged with a portion of her under
clothing. She had been bound with strips
torn from the linen of her bed. Valuable
jewelry was carried away, and the front
door found open. Deceased was sixty
three year9 old.
The question that agitates all New York,
now, is "who killed Mrs. Hull?'' The po
lice are utterly non-jilussed, and fulminate
theories and conjectures that are absolutely
Mrs. Hull was a vigorous woman of her
age, and weighed nearly 300 pounds. Her
husband, seventy-four years old, is quite
feeble, and for many years his wife sup
ported him. And this wretched old, heart
broken man, is suspected, by the police, as
the murderer! Although his wife could
have tied him, hand and foot, ami thrown
him out of the window, he is suspected of
the act that it lias required the utmost
strength of a powerful man to accomplMi.
And what does the reader suppose is the
groundwork of this suspicion? It is this:
The eye-lashes of the deceased had been
scorched. From this fact it was armied
that they were scorched by a candle held
closely to the eye to determine if the wo
man were dead; and from this con jecture
arises the additional conjecture that nobody
but a scientific man would have done such
a thing. It is not pretended that opiates
or anesthetics were used; on the contrary,
the post mortem examination discloses that
death came of suffocation. To suppose that
the feeble old Doctor could strangle his
wife, who might have handled him as a
child, is so preposterous that New York
papers find it impossible to with withhold
After three days' blind hunt, one of the
policemen returned to the starting point,
and has hit upon a trail that promises, in
our opinion, to lend to a solution of tho
mystery. Within the week Mrs. Hull had
hired a negro woman to cook for her. It
is known that the husband of this woman
is a desperadr., who has been punished for
using the rn?.or, and is even now wanted in
Pennsylvania, to answer a charge of rob
bery. Two or three days before the mur
der the cook Baw a boarder in the iiouse
pay Mrs. Hull two hundred dollars. The
sight of the money excited the woman's
cupidity, and it seemed quite impossible for
her to dismiss the thought of so much
money from her mind. This woman slept
at her own home, and there can be no doubt
thut she told her husband of the payment
of the 200. The husband, with or with
out the knowledge of his wife, concealed
himself in the Hull mansion, and finding
Mrs. Hull sleeping upart from the balance
of tho 'nmates, made the assault, with the
result stated. As policemen were in view
of the house all night, it is scarcely proba
ble that tho murderer made his cscapo
through the front door. Tho more reason
able conclusion is thut tho front door was
left open to mislead investigators; and that
the negro man, concealed in his wife's
quarters, left the house us ono of the great
throng that poured in ind out of tho alleys
and hull ways of the premises after the fuct
of tho murder liecame known. Ah tlio po
lice declare that it is impossible thut the
THE DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN:
murderer could have escaped from' tho
rear, and as tho men on duty in tho vicinity
of the house, declare it equally impossible
that he could have escaped through the
front oor, tho conclusion that he remained
concealed in tho Iiouse, seems unavoidable.
The object was clearly booty, and many
circumstances point to tho conclusion that
it was not the original purpose to take
Mrs. Hull's life. She was gagged and tied
to prevent her from giving tho alarm, and
blinded that she might not see what was
going on. Before tho villain had finished
his work of plunder he evidently discovered
that his victim was dead; and in the hope
of reviving her he threw upon her
face the cologne and ammonia he
found in the room, and knowing,
as quite everybody knows, that
the eye is the most sensitive and delicate
organ of the body, he sought, by the means
heretofore described, to determine if nnv
life remained. Correctly concluJing that
he had added murder to his crime of bur
glary and robbery, the villain, his mission
only half completed, sought his hiding
place which he afterwards left as above

The stomach cannot be kuekshtkd with
greater trash than a violent drastic purga
tive. True, such a medicine relieves con
stipation for the time, but at the expense
great injury to the intestinal canal, which
it both inflames and weakens, thus unfitting
it for the performance of its proper func
tions. Widely different is the action of
Hostetter s Momach Imters, a tonic aperi
ent which produces effects prompt, indeed,
but never violent and convulsing. The
purity of its botanic ingredients, its unob
jectionable flavor, its genial influence upon
the mind, and the thoroughness of its rem
edial action in cases of constipation, liver
complaint and dvspepsia, combine to ren
der it a most desirable family specific. It
increases both physical vigor and substance,
tranquilizer and invigorates the nervous
system, and givesan unwonted relish for
tholood. A wineglass three times daily is
about the average dose.
