An exchange cruly says: "It an editor
omits anything, lio is lazy; if he speaks of
anything as it is, ho is mad; if ho smoothes
down tho rough "places, ho is bribed; it he
calls things by their proper names, ho is
unfit tor tho position of editor; if ho docs
not furnish his readers with jokes ho is
stupid; if he docs, ho is a rattle-head, lack
ing stability; if ho condemns tho wrong, ho
is a good fellow, but lacks discretion; if he
lets wrongs and injuries go unmentioned,
hois a coward j if he indulges in personal
ities, he is a blackguard; if he does not, his
paper is inspid. In short, if ho edits a pa
per properly, and sticks to truth aud facts,
he is a fool, and don't know how to edit a
paper half as well as his readers could."

out four fingers of bug juice, and taking it
down at one swallow, he resumed: "Now
I've been figuring on a scheme for some
time, and I think it will answer. There
are millions of people living along tho up
per Mississippi and its tributaries. It they'd
all stop drinking water, which is always un
healthy, and empty their welss and cisterns
into the nearest river, we wouldn't have no
sickness, aud we'd have ten feet trom Cairo

And what does it mean? It means the Re
publican party will be drowned out in Nov

on the high hills of Vermont and on the
wide plains of Iowa. The Republican
party is called upon by the people to say
why it will not withdraw into private life.
It has answered that demand by presenting
as candidates for president and vice-presidenttwo

HOW THE NEWS FROM MAINE WAS
Believing that the opinions of some of
the prominent men of the city, of both
political parties, relative to the election in
Maine, would be of interest to the general
public, we went to the trouble, yesterday,
of interviewing them and give the result
together with the dispatches below :
Chicaoo, Sept. 14, 10.
Hon. Wm. H. Green:
Plaisted elected governor by about one
thousand. Three members of Congress al
so elected one doubtful. Legislature
probably Fusion securing the Democratic
United States Senator. The victory sems
complete. M. W. Fuller.
Chairman National Executive Committee.
The following dispatch was received
shortly alter the one above:
Spri.nofleld, Sept. 14. 1W0.
lion. W. II Green:
Latest news Maine all right. Four of
the five congressmen Democratic.
S. M. Etter.
The following dispatch received by Mr.
Fred. S. Smith is one of the latest received:
St. Louis, Sept. 14, 4:!30 o'clock.
Mr. F. S. Smith:
Plaisted elected by one thousand five
hundred majority. Roberts.
Mayor Thistlewood, who was reading
the news in the Globe-Democrat, when we
approached him, said that in his opinion
the Republicans' losses in Maine were
balanced by their gain in Vermont and ex
pressed no surprise at the news received.
Justice Olmsted was greatiy surprised
at the news and elated over it. He hud
some time ago, he said jocosely, told
some of his Republican friends that it
would be to the interest of their party to
pay more attention to Maine and less to
Indiana and Ohio, but he had never once
seriously entertained tho thought that such
a victory for the Democracy was possible in
that stato at the present time.
C. N. Huoheh, chairman of the Republi
can county central committee, said he had
not at all been prepared to bear such news
from Maine and was at a loss to know how
such a result had been brought about, since
a union of the Democrats uml Grccnbuck
ers would only give them four hundred
and niuty-two majority. To hear that the
majority of tho two parties was larger than
tho figures named was, indeed, a great sur
prise to him.
Capt. W. P. Halliday: "I expected tho
Republicans to carry Maine by not less
than ten thousand."
Capt. Shields: "I made a bet only
yesterday that the Republicans would carry
the state by a majority of live thou
Alderman Blake thought it would have
a very beneficial olfect on the Indiana and
Ohio elections aud would insure those
Siates to tho Democracy. It foreshadow
ed certain national victoro in November.
R. H. Cunninoiiam said he had paid but
little attention to politics and would there
fore not undertake to foreast the probable
effect of the Republican defeat in Maine
but that many ii"ti were induced to attach
themselves to political parties for the sole
reason of probMilo victory, uml that this
class of men would doubtless associate
thmuselves with the Democratic party on
account of tho national victory
which tho late election iu Maine argued.
Cjl. Joint Wood said ho had paid but
little attention to Maine politics, t id that
therefore ho was illy prepared to give an
intelligent opinion in the matter. Wo ex
Henry Winter, the Grecuba;ker, said
that tho Democrats should not take all the
glory unto themselves for tho Republican
defeat, but should "give tho devil his duo"
or words to that eflect. Ho was very
well pleased witli the result, and
said that had tho Democrats and Green
backers united with each other in this cam
paign, in this state, Illinois would have
gone anti-Republican by sixty-five
Col. J. S. Rearden said the victory in
Maine was tho bugle note which sounded
national victory. The news had suspriscd
him no less than any one elso and this for
many reasons which he mentioned. Blaine
who was the shrewdest politician in New
England had remained in tho state during
the entire campiagn and had personally su
perintended it. And since every effort
was put forth by the Republicans, a differ
ent result was generally expected. The
Republicau losses in Maine would be the
means of strengthening the Democracy in
Indiana aud Ohio, aud he entertained not
the slightest doubt but that those two
states would roll up very handsome Demo
J.M. Damron, candidate for states-attorney
on the Repdblican ticket, said he
felt like all men naturally would feel over a
defeat, etc , and, in reply to a by-stander as
to how much he would now sell out for, re
plied that a quarter would buy him.
We enquired for the whereabouts of Mr.
Warren Wiuus for tho purpose of ascer
taining what our colored people thought of
the news, but were informed that it was
useless lo see him. since he had refused to
believe the news or even talk about it until
he had seen the Globe-Democrat. Regard
ing him as a hopeless case we concluded
not to search for him.
A little after 4 p. m. it was rumored that
a dispatch had been received at the stone
depot to the effect that the state had been
carried by the Republicans by eight hun
dred. But if such a disptch was received,
it was untrue, since information received
from Chicago and St. Louis at midnight
last night confirm the statements made in
the above dispatches.
Indulged in Last Evening
Over the Xews Concerning
the Maiue Election.
Hon. John H. Oberly Delivered a Forci
ble and Eloquent Address to a
' Large and Enthusiastic
Ttie jollification of the Democrats of
Cairo last night over the news trom Maine
was one of the happiest affairs of its k'id
that has been held in the city. The news
came early in the forenoon and was not ex
pected by the Democrats here. A Repub
lican victory over the Fusion
ists would not have surprised them much;
but being such as it was they could not
contain themselves nor resist tho tempta
tion to allow their joy to burst forth in a
grand parade. But some doubt still exist
ed among them as to the entire reliability
of the news, therefore it was not untill late
in the afternoon handbills were struck off
and circulated, calling for the gathering,
of the clubs at the general headquarters on
Ohio levee in the evening tor a torch-light
proceKsion.The bills did not reach the notice
of more than half of the members of tho
different organizations, and these not until
about halt an hour before the time appoint
ed for the gathering. But in spite ot this
fact a procession about six hundred strong,
all having torches and wearing suits was
About half past seven o'clock the Ras
ter's martial band marched up
town to bring down the up
town clubs. They came down Commer
cial avenue and arrived at the "Rooster's
Coop" where tiie Cadets bnd Rooster3 await
ed them. Hero they were formed in line
and the column, headed by tho Comiquo
band, began to move about 8 o'clock.
They marched down Sixth street to Com
mercial avenue, up that to Eighth street,
out Eighth street to Washington avenue,
up that to Eighteenth street and returning
to Commercial avenue matched down it to
Eighth again, and then around to tho stand.
Their march was, as it has theretofore been,
a grand spectacle, but it is the more signifi
cant on this occasion because of tho short
notice upon which it was gotten up. To
the music of the several bands; tho Bteady
tread of tho hundreds of men,
moving iu double file as fur
as the eye could reach; the
bon-tires sending great sheets of tiro into
the darkness from several points on the
line of march; the varied colored lights
thut sent a wwrodglarn across tho streets at
several places along the line; to the waving
of flags mid the hurrahing of the
throng of lookers ou that crowded both
sides of the streets as the procession pass
ed along, must be added tho discharge of
roman caudles and sky
rockets without number and tho
illumination of tho residences cf patriotic

nt'zens. S)me of them were real
ly sublime in their splendor
We were unable to make a note of all of
them some being out of the lino of march,
but will mention some of the more attrac
tive ones. Mr. Wm. Perce, ou tho corner
of Eight street and Washington had placed
numerous candles in all of his front win
dows; Capt. Williams on the opposite side
of the Avenue had hung a string of Chin
neso lanterns over bis door, placed several
along the fense and displayed a number of
flags no as to create a beautifull effect.
The Bulletin had meriads of small
light3 in all the front and some of the side
The "Gem" saloon, opposite The Bul
letin office, was also illuminated with a
number of candles.
The residences of Dr. Marcan and Mr. A.
Fraser were lighted by a number of candles
and colored lanterns on the front porches.
The resilience of Mrs. J. C. Clark was one
of the most beautifully illuminated on the
entire line of march, as were also those ot
uiessrs. Samuel Wilson, Sr., B. L. McGee
and Dr. Bryant. These all made a magni
ficent display of light, colored lanterns and
flag3, and were an attraction which none
could pass without admiration and com
Mr.C. Pink had ornamented his tront
porch with lights and hung a number of
Chinese laterns and flays at various heigtlu
and trom different points in his beaut'ful
Mr. A. J. Carle had placed dozens of
candles in the upper windows of his livery
stable on Washington avenue.
Much enthusiasm prevailed in the pro
cession and cheer after cheer rent the oir
for Oberly and the other candidates. But
nothing occurred to mar the beautiful
effect. A more orderly procession never
passed through our streets. Tho march
was completed by a little after nine o'clock
when they circled around the Tenth street
stand while the bands continued to play
enlivening airs. A great crowd of people
having heard that Hon. Jon. II. Oberly
was in the city, and would address the peo
ple, had proceeded them there and taken
possession of the benches end the grounds
When order was secured Col. Jas. Rear
den was elected chairman, who, with a few
remarks, introduced the speaker of the
evening, Hon. Jno. II. Oberly. Mr. Oberly
spoke to the audience ni bis naturally elo
quent ami convincing style until about half
past eleven o'clock, holding the audience
deeply interested every moment of the time.
He expressed himself pleased to meet so
many of his fellow-Cairoites on the occasion,
and regretted that the lateness of the houi
would not permit him to enter into an ela
borate discussion ot the numerous political
questions, which Interested them and which
devided thetwo great parties of tho country
in this campaign.
He reviewed the laws as they are now
in force setting forth in clear
language their several provisions -what
they directed to be done and what
might be done under them. He pointed
out in words that convinced all who heard
him that, under the election law, flagrant
abuses of the liberties of the people had
been carried on by the Re
publican managers in New
Orleans, New York and other places,
and that the charge of fraudulent balloting
intimidation and glaring election frauds
generally could bo justly hurled agaiust tho
Republican party. Ho .hen reterred to
tho late Republican squabble in this state
between the Grant and anti-Grant factions,
with a tew appropriate and encouraging
remarks concerning tho news from Maino
he passed over to a discussion of the na
tional election laws, enacted and executed
by the Republican party. He
asked a fair hearing fromjall present, and
addressed himself particularly to tho Re
publicans, of whom quite a number were
there. He said that the professed object of
tho election laws was to insure a free and
lionet ballot, and that all good Democrats
would gladly uphold them if such were
really the effect of their' enforcement, but
that the real effect was exactly the reverse,
lie showed his hearers that the patt of
moral ideas and the champions of purey
'.allot boxes and free honest voting, ha l by
t lie testimony of its own leaders convicted
itself of the most outrageous frauds ever
attempted to be practiced by Boss Tweed
and his gang or any other unprincipled
political clique. He concluded with a re
view of the two presidential candidates
drawing a comparison between them that,
while it must be acknowledged to have
been fair, was anything but creditable to
Mr. Garfield. He commented elloquently
on Gen. Hancock, reviewing his military
and civil career and showing that
with the bravery of a soldier he combined
the sagacity and wisdom of a true states
man. His criticism of Garfield was severe
in its sarcasm and presentation of facts.
He proved him to have been a weak man
inconsistent in every groit matter of na
tional importance and to have been the au
thor of not a single legislative uct that
would leave even the suspicion that he is a
Mr. Oberly's entire speech was eloquent,
powerful in argument, elegant in style, and
will no doubt be tin cause of Democratic
fains iu this city.

What Nervous People Endure No
lwdy but themselves can adequately under
stand. The symptoms are often undefma
ble, though inexpressibly tormenting, and
it well mav be doubted whether any acute
malady inflicts more tortures than chronic
weak nerves. Invigoration is the surest
course to overcome undue sensitiveness of
tho nervous system, which proceeds from
weakness, the proximate cause of which is
usually imperfect digestion and essimila
tion. That superb invigorant, Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters, remedies that enfeebled
and disordered condition of the stomach,
w hich is the most fruitful cause of nervous
ness, and a rapid increweof vigor and ulti
mate disappearance of all nervous and
dyspeptic symptoms, may surely be counted
upon by those who are wise enough to em
ploy this genuine remedy, in preference to
the many palliatives of nervousness. A
table-spoonful before meals will be found
to improve appetite, as well as facilitate
digestion, and a reptition of the dose at
night promotes repose.
A Down Town Merchant having
passed several sleepless nights, disturbed
by the agonies and cries of a suffering
child, and becoming convinced that Mrs.
Wiuslow'a Soothing Syrup was just the
article needed, procured a supply tor the
child. On reaching home and acquainting
his wife with what he hnd done she re
fused to have it administered to the child
as she was strongly in favor of Honxe
pathiy. That night tho child passed in
suffering, and the parents without sleep.
Returning home the day following, the
father found the baby still worse; and
while contemplating another sleepless
night, the mother stepped from the room
to attend to some domestic duties, and lett
the father with tjho child. During her ab
sence he administered a portion of the
Soothing Syrup to tho baby and said noth
ing. That night all hands slept well, and
the little fellow nwoko in the morning
bright and linppy. Tho mother was de
lighted with the sudden and wonderful
change, and although at first offended at the
deception practiced upon her, lias contin
ued to tiso the tho Syrup, and suffering cry
ing babies and restless uights have disap
peared. A single trial af the Syrup never
yet failed to relievo the baby, and over
come the prejudices of the mother. Sold
