OLMSTED as a candidate for Police Magistrate,
at the ensuing municipal election.
THE BULLETIN NOT "AN ORGAN."
We need scarcely Bay to the great multi
tude of voters who read TnE Cairo Bulle
tin, that the paper, in the broad and com
prehensive sense of the designation, isjthor
oughly, but rationally Democratic. To
labor for the success of the Democratic
party has always been a labor of love on the
part of The Bulletin's conductors, and
never during the paper's existence, has it
had any hope, associated with party poli
tics, that it has placed above the
Lope of seeing the cardinal principles
of the k Democracy carried into
administration in both the state
and national governments. At times tak
ing a step in advance ot the timid plat
forms and slow-paced leaders of its party,
it Jias been anathematized as recreant
to principle; but, patiently bid
ing its time, it has seen the party advance
to its position, and heard those who had
been fiercest in in their denunciations, ap
plaud the step forward, and declare that
the delayed progress had been a fruitful
source of disaster to the party.
But it is not so much of the past as of
the future that we desire to speak on the
present occasion. Atid now that thrre
may be a fair understanding between The
Bulletin', the party, the party leaders and
prospective candidates, we have to say that
The Bulletin owes the Democratic party
SOT one cent. If obligations exist any
where, not a feather's weight ot them rests
upon this paper. With this much said we
may further say that while we shall con
tinue to laborjfathfully, persuveringly aud
zealously lor the succes of the party aud its
regular and deserving nominees, the paper
vi'Ai not be, in the common acceptation
of the term, as oho an. It expects,
u we have already said, to lend a will
ing support to the regulur and deserving
nominees of the party, and, through its
editorial columns.to advocate with as much
honesty and fervor us any other paper, all
the principles avowed by Democratic state
or national conventions; but it docs not
propose to Bobjcct itself to the uses of the
party or the party candidates, in any other
manner, without exacting u reasonable and
just compensation for its services. To be
mare explicit, we are not able in a pecuni
ary way, and would not fool ho disponed if
'we were able, to put our ad
vertising columus and job office
subject to thr commands of candidates,
leading Democrat or Democratic orguuiza-
tions, without exacting a proper money
consideration therefor. If candidates de
sire announcements published, they must
pay for them; if they desire posters or tick
ets or circulars printed, or it Democratic
clubs or committees ask work of the same
nature at our Lands, we shall demand of
them, as from private individuals, a prico
and the payment of it. Contemplating tho
immense amount of work of the kind in'
dicated, that wo have performed
dunnir tho cast twelve years, nne
for which we received not 1
nickle, and remembering with whntelYront
ery a portion of it was almost demanded at
cur hands, because, forsooth, our paper was
"an organ," we feel impelled thus early in
the campaign, to declare, with much em
phasis, that, in that sense, The Bulletin
proposes to be "an organ" no longer.
More, it is unnecessary, perhaps, to say
on this occasion. We have been as explicit
as our command of language enabled us to
make ourselves, and now give voice to the
hope, that the campaign will develope no
necessity for us again to make public the
inflexible determination to which we have
here given expression.
The Republican state convention of Illi
nois, to be held on the 19th of May, will
number 692 delegates.
Congressman Townshend voiced a fact,
well and tersely, when he said that "our
foreigu missions are little else than asy
lums lor played-out politicians." While
it is the aim of Democrats to wipe out
many of these asylums, they should not
forget the paramount duty of rendering
the United States the asylum of a played
out Republican party.
All talk of unseating Senator Kellogg is
the veriest bosh. In the first place, it is
not a party necessity, and in the second
place there are not a dozen Democratic
senators who would vote to unseat the fel
low, if the proposition were submitted to
morrow. It would be an act of bad faith
that no senator, who has an eye to the fu
ture, dare commit. Let Kellogg alone.
He is one of those Republican chickens of
fraud that are morally certain to come
home to roost when the shadows of his
party's adversity come, if not sooner.
The present commissioner of patents,
like all his predecessors, has handed in his
resignation after a very brief tenure of
office. He expects, like all the commis
sioners who have gone before him, to go
into the practice of patent law. His resig
nation is hailed with delight by the em
ployes of the patent office, as well as by
inventors and their attorneys. Many new
and confusing changes have been intro
duced in the rules and practice during his
incumbency, and it is predicted that his
successor will have a great deal to undo, to
get matters into a satisfactory shape
That very little-wanted Indian, Sitting
Bull, seems at last really about to come
back, under the terms of the government.
The commissioner of Indian affairs has ad
vices that several hundred of Sitting Bull's
band have surrendered their arms and
ponies to Agent Porter, at Fort Peck, and
have asked for rations. Of course rations
will be furnished, and by "grass time" this
spring, these "several hundred" red devils
will be warmed and fed into sufficient life
to divest the heads of several hundred de
fenceless border settlers of their hirsute
During the recess if this session ever
comes to an end a joint special committee
will sit, or has authority to sit, to prepare
plans for the completion of the Washington
monument. For years past there have been
two organizations and two officials claim
ing authority in this mutter, and the result
lias been contusion, dissension, and scarcely
any progress. The authority to be given
tliis special committee must have a good ef
fect, an 1 work out some progress in a
project, the delay in which has long been
regarded in the light of a national dis
grace. Col. Fort, who is member of congress
from tho Eighth districts also a very active
aspirant for a nomination at the hands of
the Republican party, for governor ot Illi
nois. This Fort is showing himself fully
as much as Rinaker, Smith and tho other
aspirants are able to hold. In Egypt he is
becoming a formidable competitor to the
strongest man of the gang, and stands a
very lair chance to win over a large share of
the BUpport of tho Ridgcway men, when
the utter impossibility of that gentleman's
nomination is demonstrated, as it will he
by the first ballot. General Hawley is op
crating in northern Illinois, much inclined
we should say, to let Egypt 'go to the
devil," or whither It will.
The Chicago Times says: "Tho Btory is
current that Mr. Wushburno once said to
Mr. Cotikling, 'You lie!' and when this
elicited no responce said, after a few min
utes: 'I don't know as you understood what
I said, and 1 don't wish to luive any mistake
made. I said, 'You lie 1' ' The Btory is not,
as some persons would supposti and as its
publication is designed that it should ap
pear discreditable to Mr. Washburno.
The Incident occurred beforo Mr. Wash-
burne had taken on his Parisian polish,
and while Milord Roscoc, always arrogant,
was at the height of his insolence. To give
tho domineering gentleman a taste of west
erd talk at a time when only talk of that
kind would be effectivo was a duty which
Mr. Washburno owed himself, his country,
and Mr. Conkling."
The best half of this week has been con
sumed, or worse, wasted, in a fruitless
wrangle between the free traders and pro
tectionists. There has been much filibus
tering, and a development of bad feeling
between the two parties, and even between
individual members of the same putty.
The contending factions were lead respect
ively by Messrs. Bhckburn and Garfield.
The deadlock was broken by a sort of a
compromise, which will enujile both the be
ligerents to claim a victory, but which, to
an 'unbiased looker-on, seems simply a
drawn battle. The protectionists and free
traders, as was shown by a test vote, do not
divide on party lines. Discussion has been
silenced for this session, but it will doubt
lets be a burning question in the future.
The house, as at present constituted, is a
protection house. The same may be said
of the senate. The speaker of the house is
a high tariff man. But how it will be in
two years, when a new caucus has given
the west an overwhelming preponderance
in thenational legislature, it is not at all
difficult to surmise.
During the acrimonious controversy in
tho house of congress over Townshend's
tariff bill, Speaker Randall's course was
severely and not undeservedly criticised by
his free trade Democratic colleagues. Not
able among those who denounced him was
Mr. Blackburn, of Kentucky. While th's
gentleman was "handling the speaker
without gloves," a few days ago, nnd de
claring him to be a traitor to the Demo
cratic party, and hoping the party
would soon be happily rid of
urn, he was confronted by Mr. Coffroth, of
Pennsylvania, wliq defended his colleague
and declared that the language of Mr.
Blackburn would justify him (Coffroth) in
striking him. Blackburn, much enraged,
said : "Well, you have heard what I have
said, and if you mean to say it is not true,
you are a liar." Bystanders prevented a
collision, and as Mr. Coffroth moved away
le said to Blackburn; "There is one
charge you cannot impute to him. He
never was a traitor to his country." All of
which, in a presidential year, forms tooth
some nuts for Republicans to crack, and is
most damaging to Democratic prospects.
OUR NEW YORK LETTER.
THEATRES, MUSIC AND SOy. HOW Tilt NEW
YOBKERS PASS THEIR WINTEft EVENIM.S
FAMOUS ACTORS AND THEIR PLAYS
PREPARATIONS FOR " GOING A BROAD, "
From our regular correspondent.
New York, March :0, isSO.
The amusement season of 1 879 '80 in
New York, has been a very decided suc
cess thus far, and promises to continue for
the spring. There are now twenty-one
places of regular amusement in the theatri
cal and musical line open nightly, which
exceeds that advertised in the Paris papers,
and fully equals that r.f London. The va
riety of entertainment is quite us great aud
the standard of excellence in many instan
ces equal, if not superior to that in the lat
ter cities. There are no theatres in either
of those cities that are as handsome or com
fortable in th.;ir interior finish as Wallack's,
Booth's, Steele 51 ack aye's new theatre, or
Daly's new Broadway. Of course New
York has nothing to compare with the
Grand Opera House in Paris, but the Acad
emy of 5lusic arul the Grand Opera House
are fully as handsmne as II. 51. Opera
House in London. "The Pirates of Pen
zance" continue to attract crowded houses
at the Fifth Avenue. It has but one more
week to run unless Mr. Ford secures a re
lease of the theatre. He will soon have
four companies of "Pirates" traveling, be
sides the one at the Broad street, Philadel
phi a, and the otic here. "The Royal 5lid
dy," which Mr. Doly has now in opposition
to the "Pirates," is superbly mounted and
well sung, but is deficient in the dry hu
mor and absurd contrasts of the "Pirates."
At Booth's theatre, Mr. Abbey lias brought
out "Humpty Dumpty," with Maffit and
Bartholemew in their old cliaracteis, in
brilliant scenic effects. One of the leatures
of tho interludes is a musical performance
by a company of fifteen Spanish students,
who give some exquisite music on the gui
tar and mandoline. It is tho same com
pany which appeared in Paris in 1878, hav
ing walked through Spain and Franco on
tho way to tho exposition of that year. At
tho Park Theatre, Byron's comedy of
"Charles," was produced on Monday even
ing, but it did not meet the approval of the
audience nor tho critics. It will bo tho
only attraction of this theatre for somo
weeks. Mr. Boucicault has been doing
well at Wallack's in the "Shaughrun," but
during tho last of this week has attracted
only small audiences In tho "Colleen
Bawn." He sails for England early iu
April. During Lis engagement hero Mr.
Wallack and his company are at the Opera
House over on Eighth Avenue, playing
'My Awful Dad." Tho new Madison
Square Theatre, on Twenty-fourth street, iu
the rear of tho Fifth Avenue Hotel, with
its double, stage, is a mechanical, if not a
financial success. The performance, owing
to tho absence of all "waits" does not be
gin till 8 :o0 p.m. The curtain is not down
more than two minutes between tho nets,
tho scene being set oil the stage while the
performance is going on on the other.
Wo hear sad news of 6tormy seas nnd
wrecks,but the weather here is perfect, none
of us care to exchange it for the tabled
skies of Italy. Nevertheless; I find that
many of my neighbors are talking already
of summer trips abroad, and it seems likely
that tho transatlantic travel, when the
spring opens, will be larger than ever be
fore. There is no exhibition, to be sure, of
any sort, to give our people an excuse for
going, but they are beginning to realize the
fact that there is a permanent exhibition
on the other side of tho Atlantic, which
deserves their attention no less than any
accumulation of odds and ends in cases.
Europe itself is a permanent exhibition of
considerable interest, nnd is one which
amply compensates the visitor for a few
days of sea-sickness and sea food. It is
certainly to be lisped that the net? steam
ships on the Atlantic, which cater to the
American public, will conform in a greater
measure to their notions ot what a cabin
and table should be.
A Groundwork fur Belief. The
American people fully believe in Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters, and there is a substantial
groundwork for that belief. Thev have
witnessed and experienced its effects fur
over twenty-five years, aud have found no
reason to distrust one statement made in re
gard to it. Proofs have been brought
home to their own hearths that it is n fam
ily medicine which is of the utmost value
in cases of malaria, dyspepsia, debility, dis
ordered conditions ot the liver and bowels.
and in a variety ot other maladies. They
have found it a competent tonic, u genuine
alterative, and in contrasting it with the
many preparations of the same class in the
market, they have willingly accorded it the
palm. The correctness of their belief in
its efficacy has received the strongest con
firmation in expressions of opinion by medi
cal men, and the approval of the press.
A 11,000 G.uhantee. Warner's Safe
Kidney and Liver Cure will positively cure
Blight's disease and diabetes; and it is
guaranteed that it will also cure 00 percent,
of other kidney diseases, 05 percent, of all
liver diseases, and will help in every case
without injury to the system, when taken
according to directions, and the sum of
f 1,000 will be paid to any person who can
prove that it has failed to do this. H. II.
