this fact for the benefit of those who may

Had Sheriff McCorkle been murdered
in a southern state and had he been a re
publican, the northern republican organs
would have filled their columns with fiend

Corkle was a democratic sheriff, and he
was foully murdered by republican blood-
tubs and repeaters, and the republican or
guns either decline to say anything about it
or defend the murderers. The bitter course
is the most prevalent.
The News of lust night says: "Tim
Bulletin was right. Judge Bird is work'

The Bulletin did not state that Judge
Bird was working for the success of the
"state ticket" as the News will learn, if it
again reads our statement. We said that
the Judgo was working for the election of
Mr. Oberly only, and so he Is. and f.ir the

will bo heard in behalf of the colored man's

Hon. John II. Oberly began a canvass
of this district yesterday. He will make
ten speeches iu various parts of it before
the election, having made the first at Shaw
neetown yesterday. He will speak aGolcon

day, October 19; Jonesboro, Thursday, Oc

vember 1. He has so far made a most ef
fectual canvass, and will continue to work
dilligently until the close of tho campaign.
The members of tho Ladies' Christian
Temperance Union concluded at their last
meeting to give a fair and festival on the
14th and loth of December, and to make
it one of the very best affairs of its kind
ever gotten up in Cairo. They ask that
every member of the organization contrib
ute fancy articles of every description, and
work dilligently to make it a grand success.
That the ladies can get up a magnificent
festival they have satisfactorily proven by
past efforts in that line, and our citizens
may rest assured that if tho full force of
the organization is concentrated upon the
accomplishment of the object aforesaid,
they will not fail to see a really grand af
fair. Mr. L. C. Tallmage, of Chicago, gener
al manager of the Illinois Bell Telephoue
company, favored The Bulletin with a
call yesterday, and will remain in this city
until the arrival of Mr. Washburne, the
superintendent of tho work of construction
of telephone exchanges, who was expected
here yesterday. Mr. Tullmage returns to
Chicago to-morrow and will immediately
forward the supplies necessary to complete
the exchange in Cairo, and expects to have
tho telephone in operation in a very few
weeks. The matter of right of way will be
brought before a special meeting of the
city couucil and will undoubtedly be al
lowed without a dissentiug vote. The sub
scribers in Cairo number over fifty of the
leading business men, and before the lines
are fairly in operation the number will very
likely be doubled. Its great convenience,
combined with its cheapness, commends it
at once. A special line will be run to the
house of each subscriber, and instantaneous
communication can be had with any part
of the city at any time, as the office will be
kept open day and night. The company
will publish tho names of the subscrilers,
alphabetically arranged ami mentioning the
business in which they are engaged.
The steamer Champion, transformed
into Dan Rice's floating opera house.was at
the landing yesterday, and the troupe gave
first class entertainment, consisting of
music, dancing, specialties and the higher
class of minstrel performance, yesterday af
ternoon and another in the evening. A de
scription of the boat and the hall has al
ready appeared in The Bulletin, and we
need therefore not go into details. We
will say, however, that the transformation
of the cabin of the boat into a No. 1 ope
ra house with seats, stage, scenery and all
the necessary attachments and the manner
iu which it was done was a complete sur
prise to every one of the hundreds who
visited it yesterday. The seating capacity
of the hall is eight hundred. Tho reserved
seats nearest the stage, (which is built iu
stern where was once the ladies cabin) will
consist of four hundred opera chairs. The
niueum will occiif the lower deck and
will be a great addition to the many other
attractions 'ntleied to the public in this last
and crowning enterprise of the veteran Dan
Rite. The troupe is composed of twenty-
six people, each one a star artist in his or
her line. At Cape Girardeau, night before
lust, the Colonel informs us, ho was com
pellcd to turn away hundreds of people
who were anxious to see the per
formance, listen to the music
and enjoy tho singing. The per
formance last night gave unbounded satis
faction. The singing and stage perform
ance was superb. Rounds of applause
greeted each successful performer, and the
whole cntertaiunient was pronounced a
grand success. We do not particularize,
because where all was bo well done it seems
impossible to select and praise any individ
ual actor. We believe that it is the opin
ion of all who visited the Champion that
the enterprise will prove a grand success
rtnnnr.hillv and otherwise, because true
merit will always bo successful.
THE OBERLY BOOM.
Havinir heard that Mr. W. T. Scott, a
prominent republican politician, whoso
word can bo relied on, had returned from
Bloomington, where a convention of col
ored people was held on tho Dith, we, in
company with one of our prominent citizens,
called ut his residence last night, with the
inti.ntinn of ascertaining from him the
ohicet and actions of tho convention,
His residence is situated on Hev

which were tastefully arranged. In short,
the residence of Mr. Scott, in.iide and out,
is a pleasant picture of a comfortable home, ,
and at once impresses the visitor with the
culture and taste of the occupants. After
waiting a short time Mr. Scott returned,
and we at once acquainted him with the ob
ject of our visit. He said it was true that
the colored people of Illinois had as
sembled in convention at Bloom
ington on the 13th. Nineteen con
gressional districts were represented there,
and that the representatives of these dis
tricts, with tlm exception of thiee, voted
for tl.e adoption of a resolution by which
tliey pledged their undivided support to
Ilou. John II. Oberly. fur secretary of state,
in preference to Mr. Dement, the repub
lican candidate fur the same office, and
that the three w ho voted against the reso
lution had stated that while they would
not vote i. for Mr. Oberly, they
would nor vote for Mr. Dement.
The colored people would vote for every
other republican notniaee ou the state tick
et except Mr. Oberly's opponent, and this
for the very best of reasons as a'l would
An Oberly club of sixteen hundred col
ored republicans had already been farmed
in Chicago, and other organizations in his
interest were about to spring up iu every
county in the state.
In a few days we will lay before our
readers all the reasons by which the colored
people are actuated in this movement, to
gether with such other farts as will leave
little or no doubt, even in the minds of our
republican leaders, of the election of our
honored citizen to the office of secretary of
state. The Oberly boom is booming, boys,

of the levee luminary, "no mi-take."
