far been established they have met with
the approval of the merchants and have
been largely adopted by families. Tho

with them, commends them to tho favor of

The report has been originated and
industriously circulated by persons whose
aim it is to make political capital by decep
tion, that the Democratic central com
mittee appointed five men to place an in
dependent county ticket in the field, and
that therefore it is nothing more or less
than a regularly nominated, straight-out
Democratic ticket. This report was circu
lated in order to create a wrong impression
in the minds of the voters who have, for
years gone by, been in the habit of voting
at county elections without any regard to
political parties. It is an erroneous re
port. There is no truth in it. The Dem
ocratic central committee or
any other commitee had not
the slightest influence in bringing an inde
pendent ticket before the people. For four
teen year3 the Democrats have refrained
from making nominations for county offices
and the Republicans have not done so for
eight years until this year. veu in this
campaign, though having good reason to
hope for success, the Democrats sacrificed
party interests to those of the people of
the county, by protesting from the begin
ning against partyism in county politics
wisely concluding that if the people were
left without any such encumbrances, they
could with greater freedom choose the
best men for the several offices. The gen
tlemen running on the independent ticket
against the Republican ticket come before
the people solely upon their merits. They
do not run as Democrats. They are not
even all outspoken Democrats. They stand
upon their own pins expecting no support
from any .party or any particular class ot
voters. They stand before the people of
the county, independent of any and all
political organizations, and they expect, and
ought to receive the vote of the people.
They have Tub Bulletin's support, not
because it is a Democratic journal, nor be
bause it believes them to be Democrats,
but because they are running in opposition
to the regularly nominated candidates of
the Republican party. If they were all
out-spoken Republicans, they would yet re
ceive our hearty support, because,firstly,they
are the only independent candidates in the
field, and because, secondly, we believe
them to be tho best men for the offices they
We had a talk yesterday afternoon with
Mrs. Samuel Owens, into whose house the
loaded gas pipe was thrown yesterday
morning, erne is ot the opinion that the
machine" was intended for the destruction
of her family, and was not intended to in
jure Mr. Martin Gladden, who occupies the
second story of the building, and who took
posession of it but a few months ago. We
enquired of lier whether she had ever had a
difficulty or misunderstanding ot any kind
with anybody jn this city, to which she re
plied that about a year ago she had caused
the arrest of a Mrs. Clark, who is the wife
of a colored blacksmith who occupies the
adjoining building. She had done this
from necessity and not from choice, but
since then Mrs. Clark and her husband
had exhibited anything but friendly feel
ings towards her. About Christmas, last
year, the family had lost a little child, and
Mrs. Clark blamed her for the child's
death saying that she (Mrs. Owens) had
poisoned it. So firmly did Mrs. Clark be
lieve this that she had the corpse taken to
Dr. Goidon for examination, and, although
the doctor gave it as his opinion that the
child had died a natural death, Mrs.
Clark, nevertheless, seems to have ad
hered to her former opinion. Besides this
there were those in the neighborhood
who had repeatedly threatened to
force her to vncatc the house,
although the better element in the neigh
borhood desired her to remain. Some very
hard words had passed between one of her
neighbors and herself nota great while agj
and,oue night, shortly afterwards, all her
flowers, which she had in pots in front of
the house, were broken off and destroyed
and coal oil was poured all over the front
door sill. This had undoubtedly been done
for a cause and fur no other cause than
to set tire to the house, but very likely the
rascal was frigteued away before he had
an opportunity to touch a match to it.
She thought that the person who was guilty
of such uu net was capable
of cutting out her heart
and would not hesitate to attempt to take
her lite by suchjmeanse as had been em
ployed yesterday morning. But, while this
was so, she could not tell who the guilty
parties were. She did not believe that any
one had attempted to injure Mr. Gladden,
nor does any other sensible person not
even those who are attempting to make po
litical capital out ot it.

ONE THOUSAND DEMO
CRATIC VOTERS IN
They March Through the

play of Fireworks,
To the Sound of Patriotic airs produced

A Sight Unparalleled in the History of
General John M. Palmer
Great events of what ever character;
whether political social or commercial;
whether they transpire in peace or in war,
live, in all their awful magnificence or in
all their terrible reality, only in the present,
and in the memories of actual witnesses.
Language, allpowerful as it sometimes
is in shaping the affairs of individuals
and the destinies of nations, is yet im
potent when great occasions are to be
pictured to an eager public.
No human being, even though possessed
of an extraordinary command over words,
could do justice to last night's demon
stration, or convey any idea adequate to
the reality in all its grandeur.
The day wa3 all that could be desired
The temperature was cool ; a strong breeze
blew from the north, scattering the clouds
in all directions, and rapidly absorbing the
dampness in the streets, making them dry
and in splendid condition for pedestrianism.
Many patriotic men put up temporary poles
from the gables of their respective resi
dences, from which to float the stars and
stripes, and made arrangements for a gene
ral illumination with Chinese lanterns and
candles. A great number of old barrels
and hogsheads were donated by the mer
chants, irrespective of party, and brought to
the Tenth street square tor bon-fires; a
large number of benches were placed
around the stand for the accommodation of
the audience. The staud itself was mag
nificently decorated. Having been finished
by being covered with a striped
canvass scolloped around the edge and
trimmed in red, a number of our most
prominent ladies undertook the task of
decorating it with flags; red, white and blue
cambric and wreathes of evergreens.
They worked at it nearly ll afternoon and
it must be admitted that they succeeded
admirably in transforming the plain,
square, eight-foot-high, canvass-covered
platform into a thing of beauty, which
none could pass without expressions of ad
miration. Large flags were strung around
the sides of the stand, small ones were
tacked, three in a bunch, at each corner
and at regular distances apart all around;
wreaths and other figures of evergreen
were hung in appropriate places and form- j
ed a beautiful contrast to the flashing na
tional colors. A handsome chandelier
with glass globes had been put up inside,
and a magnificent flag floated from the
pole over the centre. In the name of the
Democracy, we feel it our duty to thank
the ladies for their efforts, and to assure
them, that without their assistance, such a
beautiful effect could not have been pro-
Eight or ten great t ers of empty barrels
had been erected about twenty-five yards
below the stand, which were to send huge
flames into the darkness and give the signal
for the beginuing of fun.
The streets were enlivened all day along
with the chants of boys and the animated
conversations of men who indulged in spec-
ulations both wild and otherwise, as to
the probable strength of the procession m
the evening. Citizens hurried to and
fro with candles, torches, transparencies
and Biiits, making preparation for the even-
ing's turnout. Early in the afternoon a
club of seventy old men uniformed and
supplied with torches and headed by a
brass band arrived from Metropolis and
came inarching up Washington avenue
amid the music of the band and the
hurrahs of an enthusiastic crowd, which
followed them on either side of the street
to the grand Ktand, around which they
marched while the ladies, who were still
engaged in decorating it greeted them
with waving Hags. They then proceeded
up Eighth street to Ohio levee where they
dispersed to gather Again in the grand
processional night, after having taken a
look at the town.
A largo number of strangers, ladies and
gentlemen, were promenading up and down
the streets admiring tho gorgeous decora-
tions and were full of expectation concern-
nig tho affair that seemed to be absorbing
all the interest of the people.
The sun began to throw long shadows
ncross tho streets; occasional stars pierced
the fast darkening blue above; night came
rapidly on and with it came the gathering
of the Democratic hoKts. At tho hendquar-
ters of the "Fifth ward dull" were gath-
ered seventy-five men; at the rooms of tint
"North Cairo Hancock and English club"
evne together another seventy-five or cigh-
ty-five members; at Luo Klob's
hall, on Commercial avenue, wero
assembled tho "Third Ward Sweep
ers" to tho number of ono hundred, and at
tholr rooms on Ohio levee, wero gathere
about ono hundrod and fifty "Roosters,
seventy-five "Cadets," sixty-five ''Bantams;'
the Metropolis club of seventy-five, and
the Mound City club of about ono hundred
and fifty strong. According to instruc
tions trotn the Grand Marshal, Capt
Shields, all tho up town clubs also gath
crcd licro at tho appointed hour and tho
column was formed. Thero were over one
thousand torches on hand there, together
with suits, which wero dealt out toall that
had nono. They wero all taken, and there
wero numerous applications for more
Hundreds of Democrats took no part in
the procession, but stood on the sidewalk
and looked on as the procession passed
them. By about eight o'clock tie column
was formed and tho signal given
to start. The procession was headet
by the Comiquo band, followed by the
"Hancock Cadets" and the "Bantams;'
then camo the Metropolis band, followed by
the "Roosters" of that city; these wero fol
lowed by the Villa Ridge band, which led
the "Sweepers" and the Fourth ward club
next came the Hancock martial band, com
posed of five snare and five bass drummers,
five fifers and a major, followed by tho
"Roosters;" then came the Fifth ward club
headed by its martial band, and the rear
was brought up by a largo number of men
in citizen's dress and by a brigade on horse,
back. Besides the regular marshals there
were seven assistants appointed for the oc
casion. I lie procession began to move at
about eight o'clock. They came down
Sixth street from Ohio levee to Commercial
avenue, up the avenue and out Eighth
street to Washington avenue; up that to
Eighteenth and back to Commercial ave
nue, down that to t ourtn ana oacK to
Washington avenue, and then to the stand
I: is useless to attempt a presentation of
the sight. Complete order and the best of
behavior was observed along the entire
line throughout the march, and the man
agement was perfect, which speaks well
for all who took part in the procession
and particularly for the marshals.
Along the entire line of march
the streets were thickly lined with
people, the ladies greatly predominating,
who joined in the cheers and general
enthusiasm of the marchers and encouraged
them with the waving of hankerchiefs and
flags. The windows of residences were
filled with lighted candles; the grounds
around and the gates and doors in front
were decorated and overhung with paper
lanterns, tri-colored cambric and flags;
lights of various colors were burnt from
numerous eminences; roman candles were
discharged owr the procession, and sky
rockets shot over the house tops and blazed
in splendor in the sky, which seemed to
absorb the red glare of the apparently liv
ing stream of fire that moved in the streets
below. Thus the great mass of human
eings moved amid loud reports; amid
re and sparks and lights and wild inuaic;
amid splendor and pomp, such as can only
be conceived and carried out by men, con-
lent of success and of the rightousnesa of

addressed the great throng forcibly, ello
quently and no doubt effectually, for about
an hour and a half. His speech, of which

was listened with wrapt attention by all.
