Col. J C. Willis was shot there late the
night previous, in the yard of the boarding
house of Mrs. Yost, widow of the late W.
J. Yost, by a boarder in the house. As
there had been some burglaries committed
there of late, the boarder mis
took Mr. Willis for a burglar,
and shot him before discovering , his
mistake. The wouud is not a very serious
one, but will lay him up for some time. It
is troin a pistol shot, which took effect in a
leg near the knee. Col. Willis is well
known throughout Southern Illinois, he
having been Collector of Internal Revenue
for this district during a number ot years
past, and he will have the sympathy of his
numerous friends in his misfortune, while
they will rejoice that his injury is not of a
more serious nature."
Our fellow-citizen, Mr. J. G. Lynch, in
writing to a friend of his here gives some
tacts about himself which will probably be
of interest to all his friends' in Cairo. We
make the following extract from his lettrr:
Clement, Aug. 17, 1880.
"I am at present located at this
place, fifty miles east of St. Louis, on the
Ohio and Mississippi railroad.selling goods,
as clerk. I shall perhaps remain here dur
ing the fall and winter, after which I shall
probably go into the "shipping" business
at least that is ray present intention. For
those of my old friends (of whom I clas3
you oue) who may be interested in my per
sonal welfare, I will say that I have become
very orthodox in my habits. I attend
church pretty regularly, and neither drink,
smoke, chew or swear, and am healthy, con
tcuted and happy. I have no inclination to
return to old habits. It took heavy and
persistent pulling to get out of the old rut,
but once out I travel along life's pathway
serenely, with never a hitch or balk. My
aim is to recover my lost finadcial standing,
and, once recovered, to hold it. With kind
regards to your excellent lady and your
sehf. We would not detract one iota from
the personal character of Mr. Dainron, the
Republican candidate for state's attorney,
but candor compels us to say and compels
every person to say, who is acquainted with
him that, while he is an agreeable young
man, he docs not possess the qualifications
necessary to fill the office. True, he has
not been blessed with an opportunity, since
lie has been among us, to give an exhibi
tion of what is in liim, but one cannot help
being impressed, by his school-boy ways
and talk, with the idea that he has never
given a serious thought to his profession and
that his lack of experience would make
him tho laughing stock of our court room.
It is true, he has been admited to the bar,
but so has Justus Cunningham, and this
only shows that he was capable of replying
correctly to a few machine questions which
perhaps any boy might answer after, a
week's study. Ilo left his home in Vienna,
tho place where he was raised and known,
aud come to this city, becauso he was un
able to make a living among the people .who
knew him . from childhood aud because
there in ;Vienua ho had to resort to
clerking in a store iu order to keep body
and soul together. This is far from being
a disgrace, but it demonstrates that his
legal ability could not even make him a
living as a country lawyer. The people of
Cairo and Alexander couuty can not afford
to make a mistake. They can not afford
to entrust tho affairs of so important an of
fice as states attorney to Incompetaut hands
and we do not believe that even our Re
publican friends will do so, however strong
may be their desire to vote for a Repub
lican. Editor Bulletin : Please tell a num
ber of interested readers what you know
about Tontine Life Policies, and why they
are more preferable than othei kinds of
insurance policies. Please givo us facts
not estimates. Suuschiueh.
To answer this wo will take the
results of tho Equitable Life Tontines
as that Is the company that first
introduced that plan of life insurance
In tho United States. Take for instance a
policy of $3,000 fifteen-year tontine at the
age of forty annual $150.50. The in
sured agrees to lot his profits accumulate
to the end ot term of 15 years. It ho
dies beforo tho end of the term his heirs
get $5,000 no more, no less aud bis accu
mulated profits aro divided among the
policies of those in the same class who
pay to tho end of tho term. Tho
same rule regarding the prof
its governs in cases whero policy
is permitted to lapse. Tho total amount
paid in fifteen years on the $5,000 at $150.50
per annum is $2,347.50. At tho end of tho
tontino term tho policy holder has his
choice; cither to surrender his policy and
receivo its total value in cash, which would
be $3,005.00. After having had a life in
surance of $5,000 for fifteen years, or ho
could take a paid up policy tho amount of
which would bo $0,102.00 payable at
death with no further payments to make;
or he could take his profits in cash,
amounting to $1,747.50, and continuo his
policy of $5,000 by paying annually $130.
50 less tho dividend each year; or he could
purchase a lite annuity with his surplus,
the amount of which would bo $157.50
whicli with the annual dividends would be
not less than $211.50 or enough to pay the
premium on his $5,000 policy and have a
balance (that would increase with age of
policy) payable to him eacli year in cash
by the company of $5,500 thus giving him
a life insurance of $5,000 and $3,500 a
ycai in cash as a result of paying to the
end of the term on a $3,000 fifteen year
tontine in the Equitable of New York.
The fate of the banner of the Temper
ance club, which bears the inscription,
"Non-political," was again under discussiou
at the meeting of the club last night. Tho
club seems to be divided obstinately di
videdas to whether said banner shall be
destroyed or continue to adorn the hall and
announce to all who may come there the
important principle which served as one of
the first foundation stones of the institution
that politics should not be mingled with
the club's action. It is known that Prof.
Reynolds laid much stress upon this idea.
He believed that the Temperance club
should seek to gain its object by persuasion
and by making its cause popular among
the drinkers in various ways. He believed
that while the liquor sellers were greatly to
blame and did not deserve the respect of
the friends of humanity so long as they re
mained in the business; yet, he thought,
that the proper wajto remedy the evil was
to compel them to stop selling by reforming
the drinkers, and thus withdrawing their
support. Possibly the club stands in dan
ger ot being annihilated if it forces its
principles upon the community through
the ballot box, since already this question
has created internal dissensions which
threaten to weaken it; and, it tho old
saying, about "a house divided against
itself, etc." is true, may sooner or later
send it into oblivion. It is a fact tha:
ideas can be too strenuously urged and that
thereby the disgust rather than the sym
pathy of people is aroused. It is human
nature to deride the enthusiast, to resist
force and to revolt against those who, being
in power, seek by an arbitrary use of
it, to enforce what may be admitted
even by the rebellious, to be beneficial.
But on the other hand, it is true that
the past policy of the club
has been more or less a failure, and
that experience ha3 taught that good prin
ciples must be forced upon public notice in
order to insure tlieir acceptance. It is true
that mild, passive action, is not calculated
to attract attention or insure rapid success.
In order to give a principle its proper im
portance in the public mind it must be, to
some extent, feared, aud show itself to be
powerful. However, the club must know
best what would be to its interest, aud we
will not undertake to advise it in the mat
ter. Probably other cities and towns are in
the same condition that we find Cairo as
regards publishing a newspaper, but wo
are led by experience to think and believe
that it has a larger number of people who
think themselves better able to conduct a
paper than any one who has yet tried
and we cannot, therefore, refrain from pub
lishing a few extracts from the address of
Chas. G. Fairman, editor of tha Elmira
Advertiser, made before the New York
Press association. He says: "Writing is
ono thing; editing is another. Many of
tho best editors write very l$le for their
papers. But they do edit them, and they
do it with high integrity and unyielding
conscience. They know what goes into
their papers, and they equally known what
they keep out. They know their own re
sponsibility for what it says, and as honest
men they will not allow it to say in their
behalf what their judgement condemns.
Above alLthcy will not permit candidates fur
office usurp the throne. Every 'editor knows
how it is himself.' It has been my pain
ful duty to offend a great many worthy
meu, who were seeking the popular suf
frage, by refusing to allow them to edit
my paper through a political campaign.
They have deemed themselves aggrieved
becauso, without responsibility lor the
utterance, they were not permitted to
place upon my Bhoulders tho burden of
some unfair, unwise, or false assertion.
But candidates for ofilcoaro not tho only

that. There are th6 ambitious young gec
tlemcn who have made a sensation in some
school exhibition, whose fond parents want
the 'oration' published. . Thero are the doc
tors who, on professional scruples, won't
advertise, but who take it as a personal in
dignity when, having mended some
body's broken bones, tho papor
gives a graphic account of tho accident,
but omits to mention the name or commend
tho skill of the particular son ot Esculapius
who reduced tho fracture. There is the
clergyman, who 'lays himself out' on a ser
mon, and, like a school-boy, wants it in the
paper. But the worst fiend of all is the
seedy gentleman who comes round with a
double-breasted essay on trigonometry, 'just
to fill up, you know.' Writing for the
newspapers is business. Compositions ore
for the schools. And nobody has a right to
take offense because what lie leaves for pub
lication rs politely rejected. Precisely what
the editor is for is to determine what shall
not go into his paper. He has no right, in
good nature to one man, to offend a thous
and. He must decide on Ids judgement,
and apply the rule with inexorable itnpar

Last night being the regular meeting
night of tho Temperance Reform club, a
goodly number of ladies and gentlemen
gathered in the hall to listen to the lecture
of Rev. Whittaker, (who had beeu adver
tised to speak) and to transact such busi
ness as might come before the club for con
Dr. Dunning presided and Dr. Petrie
acted as secretary. Rev Whittaker deliv
ered a stirring address, but arriving at the
hall late in the evening we heard only a
portion of it, that portion, however will in
terest our readers.
He said he had come to Cairo not quite
two years ago, and since that time the
temperance workers had been active in the
city, but what had they accomplished?
To-day there were nine more saloons in the
city than there had been when he came;
the Sunday laws were not enforced : min
ors were permitted to drink when aud
where they pleased, and, in short, the anti
temperance element had obtained the up
per hand and how! By continued, earn
est work. ' And by work fully as earnest
and agohessive could the temperance
cause prosper in this city. Ho referred to
the prosperity of temperance associations
in other cities, which had put aside the
non-political idea and had manifested their
displeasure of the anti-temperance doctrine
at the polls. This he believed the Reform
club should do if it would make itself, felt
and regain its former influence. He would
vote for any temperance man entirety re
gardless of what political opinions he en
tertained, aud would give three
hearty cheers for him whether he
was a Democrat, Republican.
Grecnbacker, mossbac.kcr, Pinchbacker, or
any other backer. He knew the club had
done much good in this community no
other organization had done more but be
fore its labors could be as effectual as they
should be, the club must use more aggres
sive means than moral suasion to accom
plish its object.
After Rev. Whittaker had ceased speak
ing Rev. George addressed tho club for a
few minutes on invitation of the president,
and thereafter the president himself said a
few words, alter which the club adjourned
to meet again ou Friday night next.
The Republican party is cop tinually glo
rifying itself on account of its record and
the great things it has done through its
eminent members. It may be allowed that
the roll of the Republican party does con
tain the names of some illustrious men and
that it through them it did do deeds
which do it and them honor. But then, it
must be borne in mind that tho men who
made the Republican party and who
achieved for it all in its record that 13 hon
orable, were either forced out of the party
by the adventurers who obtained control of
it, or else abandoned it because no longer
willing to act with an organization that had

them died outside its pale, aud of those
