Is so Democratic paper North or South
is a single syllable of the ravings of the
Okolona Republican tool reproduced. On
the contrary, every Democratic paper that
has had occasion to refer to the out-givings
of the Okolona dirty-worker, has utterly
repudiated tliem, and denounced the editor
for what he is a hireling of Northern
Republicans. There is not a Republican
editor in the North who has sense enough
to find his way to and trom his own office,
who does not know this to be a fact, yet
with an assurance that ought to shame the
devil, fully one half the Republican papcis
of the country give their weekly doses of
Okolona hot-broth, and call them samples
of Southern Democracy. This may be
considered honorable warfare, when judged
by the Republican code of morals; but
honest, fair minded men denounce it as a
dirty, dishonorable business, in which no
man who is a gentleman will engage.

rible death at the hands of the savage ne

of the French imperialists, and to have left
them groping completely in the dark as to
their future. The succession pointed in the
direction of Prince Jerome Bonapurte, but
that self-sacrificing individual has publish
ed a manifesto, in which he declares him
self a republican and a zealous friend ot
the republic, adding that he is uo pretender
to the imperial succession, and that Lis
claims lying dormant, they stand as an ef
fectual bar to the pretensions of any other
person of the name. There is but little, if
any of the genuine Bonaparte blood now
coursing the veins of living human beings,
and France is to be congratulated over that
ftct. Had young Napoleon lived, the de
Cuusaracs of the day would have plunged
France into another revolution within the
five years to come. But, he having been
put out of the way by the knives of the
Zulus, and the next in line not being avail
uble, no one is left with sufficient Napo
leonic taint in his blood to excite a respect
able following. If our Madame Bonaparte,
were alive, the situation would excite her
to effort in behalf of her elder grandson;
but only to bring new disappointment.
Bonapartism may be considered as dead
as effectually "done for."
SHAMELESS CORRUPTION IN POLL
The filibustering of the Republican
minority in the house of Congress to prevent
tho passage of the bill to prohibit political
levies upon federal officeholders, is proper
ly denounced by the Chicago Times as an
advertisement of the dependence of tjiat
party upon black mail levies upon govern
ment clerks and appointees, for tho cor
ruption fund that is thought essential to
tho party's continued ascendency. As the
Times says, the object of the bill is iinp!y
to make an end of the' blackmail levies.
For that purpose in prohibits all political
levies upon federal officeholder, employes
and contractors and prohibits the payment
of any such levies, either t political as
sessments or as voluntary contributions.
At present the vnt army of federal offic ials
and employes receive- appointuv-ut upon th
understanding thst they are subject to
audi political levies an tiiu party
msoflgerV may see fit to irake.
That understanding is as distinct
find xplicit as ever wss ny contn C in
.writing. It li s rlgoroaily enforced. It is
not permitted to bo repudiated ; and that
it might not be repudiated and that its en
forcement might be the better assured
President Hayes was compelled to abandon
his first and only step toward the civil ser
vice reform to which the party stands
pledged. It is by the political assessments
upon the enormous force of place-holders,
and not out of anybody's "bar'l" that the
great corruption fund employed in our poli
tics is raised. The bottom of any "bar'l"
such as was ever yet rolled into a canvass
would bo reached before tho sum taken out
would amount to a fraction of that raised
by political asscsssments upon federal
place-holders, employes and contractors. As
compared witli tho corruption fund thus
exacted from everybody in receipt of pay
from tho general goverment, from the
great Indian, army, navy and building con
tractors to department clerks, all other cor
ruption funds must be reckoned as insigni
ficant. The effect upon our politics of the use
of these enormous corruption-fund levies
need not be discussed. Should the day
ever como when the question can be dis
passionately considered it must be admit
ted that the corruption of the ballot from
this source is quite as pernicious and far-
reaching as that which a vast array of
deputy marshals and supervisors is em
ployed to guard ogainst. And should the
day ever como when the question can be
dispassionately considered it must be ad
mitted that so Ions' as such vast cor
ruption funds arc employed in politics all
the marshals and supervisors must fail to
establish and protect the purity of the bal
lot-box. The curse of our politics to-day
is the extent to which money is used to
corrupt politics, t3 carry elections. And
it would indeed be an extraordinary parti
san bigotry and mendacity which could
pretend that the enormous official assess
ment levies can be used in our
politics with other effect. Tho bill
is aimed at the cutting off of this fund. It
is nothing to the purpose to assert that did
the Democrats control the national admin
istration they would fiercely oppose such
cutting off of the supply of corruption fund.
The Republicans control the national ad
ministration; and in opposing the bill the
Republican side of the house arrays itself as
the champion and defender of the infam
ous political assessment system. It is an
assertion ot the right of the party to levy
its corruption funds upon the general gov
ernment, through levies upon the official
salaries and the prices on government con
tracts paid out of tho national treasury.
The salaries are fixed with view to these
assessments. So are contracts awarded
and accepted with view to the payment of
these assessments. The whole is taken
out of the treasury, and these partisan
a tax upon the whole people as any that
are levied. They represent the amount ad
ded to official salaries and to official eon
tracts to furnish that fund. It is signifi
cant of the audacity bred of heated politi
cal discussion that the Republican minority
in congress lias the termerity to array its
self in defense of this most shameless
corruption in our politics.
THE GREAT NEW YORK MYSTERY
NO MYSTERY AT ALL.
The excitement over the recent develop
ments in the Hull murder case, continues
undiminished, alike in New York, where
the murder was committed, ami in Boston,
where the murderer was arrested. Tho
Lets connected with the murder, as con
fessed by Chastine Cox, the negro guilty
of tha awful crime, are briefly these:
If we are to believe the criminal, tho
burglary was not premeditated, and the
murder was not intentional. Cox declared
that lie never made up his mind to bur
glarize the house, until the very night of
the 12th iustant, when he unconsciously
wandered to the top of the. front steps of
the Hull mansion. Then the thought of
Mrs. Hull's ricli jewelry came into his mind
and lie resolved to gain possesion of it,
Trying his skeleton key on the front door,
lie discovered that he couldn't move the
bolt, and then trying the front windows
he found that one of them hat'
been left unfastened. Through this window
ho effected an entrance, and then securely
fastened it on the inside. Once in the oar-
lor lie was guided to Mrs. Hull's Bleeping
apartment by her snoring. He first peered
through the sliding doors that were ajar to
see if the woman really slept. Then light
ing a match to learn the situation of affairs,
he passed into Iter chamber. She was
aroused by the noise, and asked "Who's
there?" Cox auswering "the Doctor," im
mediately sprang upon her, with a knee on
each of her arms. She implored him to
take what ho wanted, but to spare her life.
He made no reply, but tearing the sheet
with one hand and his teeth,he gagged her,
and shortly afterwards had her bound,
hand anil foot, as she was found next morn
Ing. Hi object in tying her, the black
fiend declares, was to keep her from fnllii g
from the bud and making a noise. Havinu
thus secured his victim, he lighted a piece
of candle, "which he had in his pocket for
THE DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN;
honest uses'," and then took things deliber
ately. Ho passed to tho kitchen, secured a
gold watch and chain ; returned to Mrs.
Hull's room, secured tho rings'and jewerly,
and then noticed that Mrs. Hull was breath
ing very laboriously. Alarmed at her con
dition he seized a bottle of cologne and
poured it over her face, and then poured a
pitcher of water over her body. In a close
examination of her face, which he then
made, the flames of the candle set the col
one on fire, und in that way ho accounts
for the deceased's bvned eye-brows. Sow
ing, now, that the woman would die, ho
blew out h's candle, passed out tho front
door und down 'ie steps to hi? lodging.
In the fore pi'rt of tho nexi day he learned
that Mrs. Hull wi'S dead; Pid having dis
tributed most of his jewelry among his
colored female f-icnds, he resolved to leave
for Boston. He v'sited Boston, returned
and cutnc ind'rect contact with New York
detectives who were searching for the
murderer, but seems to have escaped all
suspicion. He then pawned one of the dia
mond rings ho had stolen, and returned to
Boston, where he was "spotted" by a news
paper reporter, and shortly afterwards ta
ken under arrest. He protested most sol
emnly that he didn't intend to murder
Jlrs. Hull, and hud no purpose to seriously
harm her. Neither did lie abuso her per
son his sole object being to possess him
self of her rich jewel ry and her money.
The public has uever placed a very high
estimate upon the sagacity of New York
policemen ; but the police stupidity that
lias been ueveiopcu oy tins occurrence, nt-
solutely borders on idiocy. An elegant
mansion in the most fashionable part of
the city, whore policemen were stationed
at intervals of two hundred
yards, is entered through the
front window, the burglar remains in the
house with a lighted candle, thirty or forty
minutes; leaves the houso by way of the
frontdoor; goes abroad next morning and
distributes his stolen goods among a half
dozen friends, some of them living within
a tew hundred yartls of the building from
whence they were stolen, yet the New
York police, with sage head-shakings, con
cluded that old Dr. Hull, a decrepid old
creature who could scarcely ascend and
descend the stairs without help, and who
for years had been a pauper upon Mrs.
Hull's bounty the police sagely concluded
that this old man was the murderer! The
fact that it was a physical impossibility for
the old Doctor to commit the crime, and
the further fact that his support depended
upon her ability to provide for him this,
and the proof that he was a kind hearted
old man, devotedly attached to his wife,
all went for nothing: The police owls of
New York decided that he was tho mur
derer, and so deciding, kept him under
CfO5V UU4 WMUIUUf - - t
It is not probable that the Mayor of
New York would improve matters
by the change; but he owes it to
himself and his administration to
discharge, in disgrace, every policeman
who had any hand in the so-called "work
ing up" of the Hull murder case. From
the moment the murder was discovered un
til the newspaper man furnished the "key"
to the alleged mysteries surrounding it, the
police concerned betrayed an assimnity
an inability to deal with common-place
facts, that better fit them for the lunatic
asylum, than the police force of the me
tropolis of the nation. "Bounce them,"
