TnE Peoria Democrat discussing the
Democratic defeat in Ohio, says thatBarks
dalo'e tt g m MleBiBBippi was 'worth
15,000 votes to Foster in October. The ef
ficient allies of the Republicans have been
the 6hot-gunners and bull-dozers of the
South, the moonshiners, who, with their il
licit stills, rob the treasury of its revenue,
and depress the market and the price of
Peoria's chicfest product. These Southern

' "HoNEfcT John" IIogan, of St. Louis,
made a sensible speech before the Quincy
river convention. Mr. IIogan believes in
tho Mississippi river, and he believes in
having it improved by the government, that
the people may have all the vast benefits ot
free, cheap and speedy transportation. He
took the ground that the people should not
beg lor , assistance from the government,
but should demand it as a right. It was the
duty of congress to improve the river, and
the people should demand that the duty be
performed. It is time for the people to get
in earnest. When they do their servants
in Washington will vote the needed appro
Tue editor of the Chicago Tribune is of
the opinion that the Methodibt Conference,
recently in session in Chicago, sought a
quarrel with tho accomplished editor of the
Northwestern Christian Advocate. It
not possible, the Tribuno says, to interpret
in any other way the resolution of the Con
ference desiring members "to heed the ad
.... . . discipline concerning tneuse
of tobacco." Tho Conference will not ac
copt any new members from probation, nor
welcome any transfers of ministers, who are
addicted to this habit. What it thinks of
persons who, like the editor of the official
organ, being already members, have habits
that are deniod to thoso seeking admission,
the Conlerenco leaves to be inferred.
GovEnson Hendricks has expressed his
opinion of the result in Ohio. He says he
was hopetul, but not confident, of tho re
sult. "When the Western Reserve turns
out its forces things are apt to go one way.
It will strengthen John Sherman greatly.
Blaino and his friends will claim much of
tho credit. Ho hud tho largest meetings in
tho State, whilo Sherman's were small.
IJut Grant will scoop tho Republican nom
ination. J hate thought so all along. Ho
caid if Tilden could curry New York,
Ohio would strengthen him. Ho couldn't
c bow be could have been helped by Ew
Jng'i election. .He said tho people of Ohio
wept lr.t the election on their own ideas.
"I don't think the ttesidcntiarfrucstloy.
and the proballi rffect it might liavo Opon
this or that candidate, entered into yici
consideration at all.".
The idea that millions of our best and
most fertile western lauds whole StatceJn
extent mu9t be hold sacred to the occu
pancy of a low huudrod useless, loafing, vug
abond savages, Is ono that must, sooner or
later, be abandoned. The march of em
pire and the advance of civilization cannot,
and must not be impeded by any such
cause. Swukiiiir of the White River
troubles, the Chicago ' Tribune says : "The
troops at White River have been rein
forced, and water and provisions are plen
ty. At Lo rinos no lears arc leu oi any
trouble witli the Indians, unless trouble is
caused by the whites, who since the White
Jiver uprising arc more than ever deter
mined that "the Utcs must go." If this
determination creates trouble, there is
ikely to be plenty of it, for nothing is
more certain than that the immense region
in Colorado now occupied by a few worth
less Indians will soon or late be cleared of
these incumbrances find obstructions to set
tlement and development."
A late Washington dispatch says that
everybody in administration circles was
very happy over the news from Ohio. John
Sherman was at his office all day, where he
received calls and congratulations. Secre
tary Evarts, the only other cabinet member
in the city, came over to talk about the de
tails of the canvass. The Republican lead
ers regard their victoiy as a very important
ot;e, as in the election, they claim, were
tested the issues raised during the extra
session. Further than this, they regard
the election as a final settlement of the
money question and a recognition that re
sumption and consequent good times can
be credited up to the score ot the Republi
can party. Sherman's iriends regard it as a
great step upon the highway to his nomina
tion for the presidency. Foster is an anti
Grant man. His great success has given
the Republicans confidence. This, at least,
is the opinion of prominent Republicans,
who say that so long as it is clear that Re
publicans can. elect anybody they will no
longer think ot Grant.
A NOTE OF WARNING SOUNDED.
"A Greeley Republican," and an eminent
lawyer, by the way, discusses the political
situation through the columns of the Spring
field Register, and warns the Republicans
of the country that they dare not repent the
experiment of Grantism; tVm, tho ).otij
went to pieces in 1873-4 under its enervat
ing influence, and opened the way to an
overwhelming Democratic majority in the
house of the 45th congress, and to a Demo
cratic majority in both houses of the 4(jth
congress, no man can say that like causes
will not again produce like results. And
now, says the writer, we come to this ques
tion: "Can any man, not a fool, ask those
Greeley men who foresaw and predicted
that Grant's administration would end in
the transfer of the Republican pow er to the
Democracy, now that their predictions have
been realized, ask those men to reinstate
Grant or any one of those who aided him
in destroying tho ascendency of the party
who saved tho Union? Do these stalwarts
think Greeley men tools, or knaves, or both?
And if Grant were nominated could he be
elected without the aid of Greeley Repub
licans! And can they assure us that Grant
has gained wisdom enough in China to
avoid his former errors, and to get rid of
the Babcocks, Belknaps, and other thieves
and barnacles that infested his administra
tion, ami made it disreputable, and a:urse,
and a destroying burden to the Republican
And,now that the stalwarts censure Hayes
for appointing the rebel brigadier, Key
postmastir general, is this not aliout the
place to ask if it was any greater crime to
do fo than for Grant to appoint that use
less crPature, tho rebel hrigaJier, Acker
man, attorney general ? Is not the printi
pal difference this: that Key has proved a
wiuuii auviscr, auu ims inure iiihij uquama
any of his predecessors in running his de
partment successfully, while Ackerman wa9
a mere nobody? With a twenty million
fraud in tho New York custom house, do wu
want, or could we stan J any more of Grant's
appointments, especially if republicans, un
der Conkling's lead, such frauds are to be
sustained without regard to tho interests of
In view ol these things, I warn stalwarts
not to attempt to thrust upon those Greeley
men of 1872 and tho still larger number of
Republicans who would not then voto for
Grunt, a man Vhos political life lias been
ono of continued blunders and wrong.
Sneering won't do now. Tliosc who could
stand it in 187:, will not be h ighncd at it
in 1880, when their experience hns Bhown
them they were right in opposing GrHnt be
fore. Two administrations of tho stalwarts
with Grant so nearly ruined tho Republican
party that a third will surely lund us in oV

CAIRO BULLETIN: SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 19, 1879.
Regular C'orreopoudauce of the Cairo ollH In
' "Wasihnotow, Oct 18th, 1879.
The Ohio election of courso is tho town
talk. It is a surprise. While most people,
I think, conceded Foster's election several
days ago', yet they did not have any idea
tho majority would bo ' so large, and tho
general expectation was that Senator Thur
man would save tho legislature and his own
seat in the senate. Our accounts here now
justify tho belief that the Democrats have
lost all. If the Republicans have tho leg
islature, it means the election of Gen'l
Garfiejd, probably, to the senate, and s big
ger presidential bootn for Sherman than has
been anticipated. However, I notico that
the Republicans are very considerate in
distributing the honors of victory, and men
tion Blaine, Chandler and others gratefully
and enthusiastically in the same breath
with Sherman, Garfield and Foster. A Re
publican legislature also means tho redis
ricting of the state. It will be recollected
that tho Democrats so arranged the con
gressional districts that last year when the
Republicans had a majority of the votes in
the state, the Democrats elected 11 of the
20 men here ot congress. The Republicans
lave labored with great zeal to reverse tin's,
and if they have beaten Mr. Thurman in
this race, they will crow wonderfully. As
to Iowa, of course the Republic ans were
expected to carry it, but the majority is a
Speculation has already begun as to Jndge
Thursman's future. It is said that this
kills him fur the presidency, the Tilden and
other men, arguing that he cannot carrj his
own state. Of course it will have a bad
effect upon him, and will make the fght
fur him much harder than it would kave
been otherwise. His loss from the seiate
will be the hardest blow tho Democrttic
party has received for a long time, for lie is
the oldest manager on that side now in ((Di
gress, and his experience as a legislator ill
be sadly missed.
I have seldom seen Washington in such a
state ot excitement as last night. The Re
publicans kept up the rejoicing fur into
the morning, while after the first dis
patches the Democrats closed up. But
in the evening, it appeared as if a cloud
had fallen down upon the Republicans I
believe the Democrats at last, while await
ing the returns, were more confident of suc
cess thun their rivals, and probably that ac
counts for sonic early dispatches giving the
State to them evidently written' this side
The Blaok Hills shooting affair will prob
ably offur another excuse for a ong political
discussion in Congress. Postmaster Gen
eral Key referred the case of Nix to Judge
Freeman, ivho reports in substance that no
law exists by which crimes against the per
son of postal officials can be tried in United
States courts. Mr. Key says that while his
first impulse, with regard to the affair at
Blaekville, was to close the office if the
State authorities should fail to bring the
postmaster's assailant to trial; subsequently
he thought that course would operate us a
punishment to the victim of the outrage
rather than to its perpetrators. Now he
w ill lay the report of the special ngents be
fore the President and Cabinet, and be
guided by their advice. Probably recom
mendations will be made to Congress that
the law authorizing tho trial of crimes
against the persons of revenue officials in
the national courts be enlarged to include
similar crimes against postmasters. Of
course the Democrats will resist this as an
invasion of State rights, and a hot fight
may be expected.
President Hayes ha stiffened up into a
regular radical Republican. Ho recom
mends the Republicans of New York to
vote for Mr. Cornell, and not take the ad
vice of the "seratchers" so called. This is
a severe blow ut Curtis, the chief of the
seratchers, who has been the President's
chief hacker in the Empire State.
A good share of credit fur the Republi
can victory in Iowa is given to Senator Al
lison, who is a growing man in his party
and throughout the country.
DipiiTiiEitiA has becomo, alarmingly
prevalent in Chicago, although, as tho
Times says, a little judicious care and hard
ly any expenditure might have kept it out ot
the city. The following suggestions may
prove valuable to our Cairo readers!
"It has been noticed that where diphther
ia hus occurred, after thoroughly investi
gating the premises, sufficient causo has
been discovered to produce it, either in a
neglected cellar, cesspool, or in deficient
trapping of seworpipes. All these should be
carefully inspected, und if the' cellar should
bo found damp, and badly ventilated ami
containing vegetable mutter of any kind
all urticlcs that might possibly become im'
trid or decayed should be removed at onen
tho cellar thoroughly ventilated, the wiiIIb
and ceilings whitewashed, and disinfectants
liberally scattered over the floor. Chloride
of lime is the best ono for tins purpose.
Next, tho water-closets should be looked
after; if they nro located in tho house, tiny
should bo examined by un honest and ex
perienced plumber, to see if they nro prop,
erly trapped, und onc-hnlf pound Niilphm,,
of iron (copperas), dissolved in two gallons
of hot water, thrown into them at least twice
ft week. If there sro any cesspools In tho
yard convenient to tho house, pipes should
bo arranged to carry off the impurities."
