Twestv-six thousand special election -eerers
for the Republican ticket have been
paid by the people's money, in 1870-8,
for ten days at five dollars each day, un
der the guise ot deputy supervisors and
marshals, and yet this failed. No wonder
they want the troops at the polls to protect
those ignorent and insolent political bum
mers in locking up more Democrats on
election day and beloro voting, as
the law allows, for "intent" to cast an ille
A woman wanted to remove a tree from
her lot in a cemetery at Springfield, Mass.,
to make room for a monnment, but the au
thorities refused permission. She went
home and prayed that the Lord would take
the tree away, and within a few hours a
' tornado blew it over. The same wind did
great damage throughout Massachusetts,
and killed many persons, yet the woman
firmly believes it was sent in answer to her
prayer and, so believing, her faith in the
. efficacy of prayer is grounded on adamant.
The individual who came from Jlissis
sippi, serveral weeks ago, to raise $75,000
from Northern philanthropists, that he
might provide three hundred teams for
three hundred Mississippi colored families
who are pining for the free land of Kansas,
hus become completely obscured. For a
week or len days now, he has not bstn
hear from. He may bo "all right;" but it
cannot b denied that conscienceless fel-
, lows have seized upon the alleged needs of
these exoding negroes, as a means for fill
ing their own pockets. And now that the
' people ot one section of the North are be
ing importuned for money to move Btarving
negroes" out of Kansas, it does seem to us
that the efforts to raiso money to move
more negroes into that Sate, ought to cptisc.
The two begging operations don't harmon
ize. Foster, the Republican candiditto tor
Governor of Ohio, gave Secretary Sherman
to understand that his chances of election,
at best, wcro not equivalent to u guarantee
' of success ; but that the caso was absolutely
hopeless unless at least f 100,000 was put
into the hands of the party's strikers, with
out delay. According to the New York
Sun's Washington correspondent, Secretary
Sherman, "was able to inform Foster that
the work of fleecing the clerks was already
well under way, and upward of 100,000
.could be realized from that source during
tha season." Said Sherman to Foster:
Tho clerks are working under a now plan
this year. Out of deference to the civil
service system, you know, wo call for volun
teer subscriptions, and do not mako uhschh.
menU. Of course it is understood that if a
man does not volunteer his pluce will bo
needed by a more generous man."
A Lawrence, Massachusetts, telegram,
cnt out under dato of Saturday lost, tells
how Peter Igo, an idlo operative in that
, ' city of looms, died of slow starvation.
Wow, to all such men as Igo, the well-to.
do fellows always sao : "Well, why didn't
he o west, and go to farming? There's
room for everybody there, and whilu that's
o nobody has any cxcu.no for going hung.
VrP If anything can add to the misery
f the destitute among us, it is this ever
ready suggestion to "go to farming." The
' man who haa not a dime with which to
' buy a peck of potatoes for his hungry fam
ily, it told to rent land, buy horses, wagon,
.plows and a six month's supply of provis
ions to last him until his crop matures, and
then "go to funning 1" It is hard enough
to go hungry, but to be told that you don
descre any sympathy becauso you don t
achieve an impossibility, is simply unbear
able. Catt. Belt, who is the recognized
leader of tho Hardin county Kuklux was
put upon trial in bhawneeio'vn. last week,
for the murder of a man named Oldham.
On Saturday the jury returned a verdict of
"guilty of manslaughter," and fixed tho
punishment at 15 years imprisoment in tho
penitentiary. The Shawueetown Herald
says: "Tho verdict of the jury canuot be
considered as a triumph of tho Oldhams
over tho Belts, however, for ,th? people wcro
moro favorably impressed by the hjiptaranco
and conduct of the latter (both on and off
the witness 6taud) than by the former it is
a practical dnd forcible protest of the law
abiding people against appeals to arms to
6ettle privato difficulties. It wos a question
as to which was most to blame, but Oldham
had paid tho penalty with his life and Belt
was not to escape all penalty. It is a
warning to the revolver carrying people of
Hrirdin, no matter to what gang they belong,
that though "the mills of tho Gods grind
slow, they grind exceeding flue." If, as is
asserted by many, Cnpt. Belt's punishment
is excessive, it will be easy for ho and his
friends to lessen it he by good conduct in
prison, and they by good conduct at home.
s matters now stand, the sympathies of the
people are largely with tho Belts."
Newspaper writers who are much given
to conjecture and speculation , put it down
as among the probabilities of the early fu
ture that young Douglas and young Lincoln
both of whom are now practicing law in
Chicago, will pick up the mantles of their
respective fathers, and, in a canvass of Illi
nois, give us a repetition of the great
Douglas-Lincoln struggle of 185$. Several
reasons are assigned by somebody who
seems to be well informed, why such a
struggle is not among the future probabili
ties, near or remote. This somebody affirms,
in the first place, that both ot them are
Republicans, and therefore, not political
antagonists. In the 6econd place, young
Douglas has been too much of a, politician
and young Lincoln too little of a politician
to make it nt all probable that either will
approach the fame of his father as a politi
cal leader. Douglas was unfortunate in
getting into polities as a carpet-bagger in
North Carolina; was speaker of the house
during Holden's disgraceful administration,
and he has an unwelcome flavor about him
for the people of the w est. Lincoln has
much of his father's ability
without his love for poli
ties, and ho has studiedly refrained from
all proffers of political advancement. Dou
glas lias Ju's father's tasto for partisan bat
tles, but lacks his aggressive ability and It is
devoted friends. Lincoln could rally the
mass of those who revere his lather's mem
ory, but lie wisely applies himself to his
profession and rejects all ideas of political
distinction. It is quite improbable, there
fore, that the future political disputes of
Illinois will make the names of Lincoln
and Douglas famous, ami, to conic down to
stern, unimpeachable facts, "the boys have
not got the old Douglas-and-Lincolnsaud in
CARING FOR THE POOR COLORED
The Rev. Henry Watson, of Kansas City,
is one of thoso Republican philanthropists
whoso hearts bleed for the poor bull-dozed
colored people of Mississippi, who, eating
fifty dollars worth of sardines and cove
oysters during the summer, have no bacon
to eat during the winter. Hev. Henry Wat
sou not only hud a heart that bled for the
negroes in Mississippi, but it yearned for
those right around him, who, having reached
tho free land of Kansas were still destitute,
idle And hopeless. For this class all the
sympathies of hi uature became enlisted;
and after much cogitation he concluded
that tho prairies of Northern Illinois in
vited their presence, and that, once there
they'd be happy. Accordingly, obtaining
money we know not how,
ho grouped together fifty of
of the idle, hopeless and despondent, and
started for the new promised land. The
further doings of tho philautrophic deacon
aro recorded in tho following paragraph,
which wo take from the St. Louis Times
Journal of Saturday lust:
"About fifty colored men, women and
children readied Fust St. Louis about 8
o'clock yesterday morning by the Kansas
City, Chicago uud Alton railroad, in cliargo
of Deacon Henry Watson, of Kansas City,
on their way from Kansas to tho northern
part of Illinois. Soou after their arrival
Watson departed for St. Louis, leaving
only 3 with which to buy bread for their
breakfast. Ho promised them to return by
noon, but up to 0 o'clock last night Wat
son had not mado hU nnpuuroncn.' Tho
baggage and provisions of these poor peo
ple wcro shipped on a freight truin and had
not reached East St. Louis up to a late
hour last night. They woro therefore
ob.iged to sloop on tho bare ground, with
n,-.th1,r covering man tu --ur
heaven, on tho verge of a slough near tha
O. and M. roundhouse. Tho screams of
tho poor children for something to eat
were truly heart-rending, whilo tho grown
people, men and women, appeared to sub
mit to their fato with commendable resig
nation. Mayor Joyce, on being informed
of tho condition ol theso unfortunates, had
them supplied with provisions. Two of
tho. colored men went to St. Louis yester
doy in search of Watson, but flailed to find
him. They speak of his treatment of them
in very uncomplimentary terms.
Everybody knows the stupefying and
deadly qualities of opium; still there aro
large quantities of this drug'sold as a sooth
