FORNEY'S LIFE OF GEN. HANCOCK.
It is a singular fact that tho most eulo
gistic and exhaustive campaign biography
ot Gen. Hancock should be written by one
whose pen and tongue for years have done
the most signal service for tho Republican
party. Col. John W. Forney of Philadel
phia, whoso reputation as a graceful and
forcible writer and man ot letters, is so
well known both in thia couutry and Eu
rope, a pet of Republican administrations,
and most of tho time uti office holder for
20 years, has not only severed his connec
tion with the Oarliuld crowd, but has
thrown all his ability and enthusiasm into
tho campaign for the Democratic candidute.
The most important service of which is a
full and exhaustive life of Gun. Hancock
it is destined to nigh rank, as a campaign
biography. Though differing in politics,
tho author and the subject have been lnti
mate Ufo-long friends, and hence Col. For
acj has personal knowledge of most of tho
brilliant achievements of (Jen. Hancock
and of all, the circumstances connected
with them. ' Added to this, Gen. Hancock
has so approved bis work as to plno at hU
disposal liia personal memoranda, correB
pondence, official and privato papers. With
such facilities the work will be absolutely
iull and authentic, the standard on tho sub
, As a biographer, Col. Forney will be to
Gen. Hancock what Boswoll was to John
son, Lockhart to Walter Scott, or Abbott to
Bonaparte. It is a "Labor of Love," ac
tuated by a grand enthusiasm and carried
out with a degrco of ability and graco that
will place it in the front rank of American
The career of the brilliant soldier with
an army record extending through 33 years,
is worthy of such a pen. It is full of event
and is soon to be crowned by the more im
portant one of a transfer to tho white
house, which will make tho book one of
permanent value. It will bo sold by sub
scriptioa and will surely meet with a largo
sale. Tho publishers, C. II. Lilliugston &
Co., of St. Louis, Mo., advertiso for agents
in another column.
THE TRUE VIEW OF THE EXECUTION OF MRS
There is one point in the career of Gen"
eral Hancock on which it may seem proper
that tho Pilot 6hould say a special word,
albeit it is to refute as falso and silly a
charge as ever emanated from tho brain ot
the wildest scribbler in nil Bohemia. It is
the assertion that General Hancock lias lost
favor among the Catholic part of our popu
lation by his connection with the execution
of Mrs. Surratt, and this sapient opinion is
based upon the tact that Mrs. Surratt was a
member of the Catholic church.
In the first place, it is proper to soy that
General Hancock's connection with the at
fair was solely that of an officer obeying
his orders. Had we, or any other Catholic
in the world, been in Gen. Honcock's
place, our duty would have been to do as
be did, whether tho condemned woman
were Catholic or Protestant, heathen or in
fidel. A Catholic knows no distinction ot
creed in the performance ef his duty; he
quarrels with no man for the execution of
his duty; ho has no more sympathy for a
man or woman put to death, justly or un
justly, because the victim is a Catholic,
than if he or she were of any other relig
ion or no religion.
Herein the Pilot, though no organ, be
lieves it voicea- the opinion of common
sense and true religion. Catholics, of
course, laugh at tho foolish idea that they
should bear ill will on religious grounds
any one connected, however closely, with
the execution of a Catholic woman, but
there are a great many fools in this world,
and a very common specimen is the man
who supposes other people to be influenced
by ideas and ties which would have no
weight at all with himself in a similar
Whilo wo have very little respect for any
man who carries his religion into his poli
tics, we should have nothing but contempt
for the ono who carried both into the sac
red halls of justice and law.

New York Sun.
A recifTiirm was riven in tho Asbury
Mcthodrft Episcopal church in Washington
square, last evening, to tho Rev. and Mrs.
John S. Inskip, who are about to make the
tour of the world as evangebsts. Witn them
are the Rev. John A. Wood and wife and
Mr. McDough. After each of the travellers
had addressed the congregation, the Ohio
quartctt and one hundred other persons
from the Round Lake camp meeting associ

pool on baturday on the steamer Lne.
From England they will journey to Bom
bay, whence a complete tabernacle
made of wood has proceeded them
on a sailing uoat. I ms tab
ernacle, Mr. Inskip says, the party will take
witli them all through India. The Rev.
Mr. Inskip was an itinerant minister for
thirty-three years, but tho past ten years he
has been an evangelist. Mr. wood has
presided over a congregational church in
Mrs. Inskip said she was too old to make
such a trip, but she had been called to
make it, and had decided to do so. She
hail asked her husband to have her body
brought homo if she had died abroad, and
buried in Greenwood cemetery.
Mich a traveling band of lunatics will
make our religion ridiculous in the eyes of
the old world. They have been "called"
to make such a trip only by their fanati
cism. Airs. Inskip should ho buried in
Greenwood cemetery before she starts.
GARFIELD AT HOME.
From St. Louis Republican.
The Cincinnati Enquirer has submitted
Garfield's ''tremendous popularity" in his
own district to the test oi figures, and the
result is somewhat interesting. In 1872 ho
was elected to congress by a vote of 19,1 tr9
against 8,245, given tho Democratic candi
datea majority of 10,014. In 1873 oc
curred the little unpleasantness ef the
Credit Mobilier, and in 1874 it made itself
felt by reducing Garfield's vote 0,598. At
tho same time in tho counties composing
tho district tho Republican candidate or
secretary of state received 1U,202 against
8,313 for the Democratic nominee. The
party vote increased, but Garfield's
diminished nearly 7,000 a woful
fulling off, indeed. In 1870
tho presidential contest help
ed him somewhat, but he still, in his dis
trict; ran 2,543 votes behind Hayes. In 1878
his vote dropped to 17,167, while tho op
position polled 10,701 ; a majority of 0,405
against 10.044 in 1872.
It would seem, then, that tho much-boasted
strength of the Republican presidential
candidate "at home" has been steadily di
minishing, being less by 4,470 votes in 1878
than it was in 1872. A heavy decline, cer
tainly, and mainly, it not entirely, duo to
tho scandals which the Republican press
insists have no foundation in fact, and are
repudiated by "those who know him best."
Figures give the lie to a good many ingen

Why, there is George Bullock, one , of tho
strongest Republicans in this county, tho
owner ot the immense mills Balligomingo
in fact tho owner of tho village. Ho has
thousands of employes, who live upon his
land, and to whom everything is provided
in tho way of necessities yes, and luxuries
of lite. He, in a word, is a philanthropist
in the true nonso of the word, and wields an
immense influence. He is a radical Re
publican, but he has announced hisdeterm
ination, if Hancock was nominated, to raiso
a Hancock flag on top of his mills, where it
should wave throughout tho campaign
Why, here, sitting right side of me, is C. F.

"I shall vote for Hancock," said Mr
Dr. William Carson, ono of the oldest
citizens, though a radical Republican, says
ho thinks Hancock a' most admirable man
and ono very hard to beat.
A profuse and many times excessively
offensive discharge from tho nose, with
"stopping up ot the nose at times, impair
ment of tho senso of smell and taste, water
ins or weak eyes, impaired hearing, irregu
lar appetite, pressure and pain over the
eyes, and at times in the back of tho head,
cold feet, and a feeling of lassitude and ue
bility are symptoms which are common to
catarrh, yet all of them are not present in
every case. Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy
cures catarrh in its worst form and stages.
It is pleasant to uso and contains no poison
ous or caustic drugs. So sure a cure is it
that its former proprietor offered for years
in all tho principal newspapers of tho land
a standing reward of $500 for a caso it would
not cure. Sold by druggists at 50 cents.
Nerve Power. Few people suffer so
much nervous exhaustion as editors. The
wear ond tear of getting out a good paper
toll fearfully, and readers seldom know
how much vital force a singlo item may
have cost the one who wrote it. Editors
have often been driven to drink in order to
stimulate their exhausted faculties, but of
late are using Warner s Safe Nervine in
stead. This valuable preparation acts as a
soothing power, quieting tho nerves and
producing sleep with all tho refreshment
that it brings.
Bronchitis, a premonitor ot con
sumption, is characterized by catarrh
or inflammation of the mucous mem
brane of the air passages, with cough
and expectoration, short breath, hoarse
ness, pains in the chest. For all bron
chial affections, sore throat, aphonia
or loss of voice, cough, "Dr. Swayne's
Compound Syrup of Wild Cherry," is a
well known curative. Price 25 cents
and $1 a bottle, or six bottles for $5.
The large size is the most economical.
Prepared only by Dr. Swayne & Son,
Philadelphia. Sold by all prominent
druggists in Cairo and elsewhere. (1)

120 BROADWAY 3STEW YORK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact- that for Eleyen years its average an
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, audits
rule never to take advantage of - technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
As a GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States.
After the policy has been in force for three years.
"The Equitable Life haspaithince its organ
ization to January 1st, 1880, 51,882,736, and
closed its Looks upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."
The Equitable Life Assurance Society was the first to in

By the late report of the Insurance Commissioner for tho
states of Massachusetts and New York, the Equitable Life
Assurance Society shows the following strong points:
FIRST The Equitable has a larger ratio of assets to lia
bilities than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last year
than any other company.
THIRD The Equitable's death rate was less last year than
any other of the leading companies.
FOURTH The Equitable realizes a higher rate of rent, or
