The colored people are more interested in
free schools than any other class ot citizens.
1'heir future improvement depends on free
schools. The elevation of the colored race
depends on iree schools. They can only
succeed in the great battle of life by the
aid of free schools. Whatever of the
future is bright to the colored race takes
its brilliancy from the free schools. Their
intellectual development and their moral
advancement depend upon free schools.

THE COUNTY ELECTION.
The election of men to fill tho offices in
ur own county, should and it does, attract
the attention of every citizen ot Cairo and
tho county, and greatly exceeds tho interest
taken in the general election. It is not
now, and it should never bo allowed to be
come a political race. Tho people have
heretofore und will again at tho polls In
November, make good their claim to say
who shall or shall not bo their candidates,
and who shall or shall not receive their
votes. Iu tho present contest a fow politi

cuudldites of whom a few political lei t
say to the people, "Theso are ui it choice,
for these you must deposite your unscratch
ed ticket in November." Tho same feel
ing will govern the untrammeled men of
tho republican party that governed those
deniocrits. who voted for Judge Baker, as
an independent candidate, against the
nominee on a straight democratic ticket
in 1S70. As the democrats rebuked their
party leaders in that contest, so should the
independent republicans rebuke theirs in
this election of county officers, which i
brought so much nearer borne.
One ot the arguments used by republi
can speakers in urcingthe necessity of vot
ing tlm whole ticket straight is that its de
feat would be claimed as a democratic
victory. This is all bosh, to every think- .
ing man will admit. Tho defeat of tho
ticket will be the people's victory. No
democrat aks or ces what the politics of
the independent candidates aro. It is
enough to know that they are independent ;
that they represent no party, and that they
aro. in fact, the best mn for the position
they seek. When Jack Hodges was asked
if he would go into a convention and be
come a candidate on the republican ticket.
His reply wa: "No. Democrats and re
publicans elected me Itfore and republicans
and democrats, if they aro satisfied with
my work, must do it again. I will be the
people's candidate, or I wi'l not make the
race." This is the correct view to be taken
f the matter, and his election will be a
triumph of the people. The Bulletin sup
ported Jac k two years ago, at tho close of
his term as deputy of a sheriff whose
politics is unquestioned, and when his op
ponent was a representative of tho demo
cracy; it now supports him, not as against
a straight republican nominee, but becauso
he is not only tho best man for the position,
but as an independent candidate represents
the principle, "No politics in county elec
We know that all democrats do not think
as we do, that there are a good many in
the city, some of them good men, who will
vote against the independents, but that is
their right. On the other hand a large
number of republicans in Cairo have ex
pressed an intention to disregard the party
lash and vote as they please and out in the
country, "the woods is full ot 'cm." The
other Independent candidates are well
known in the city and county. Mr. Fitz
gerald, as coroner, haa served the county
well and saved hundreds ot dol
lars of the people's money, thereby lessen
ing the expenses of tho farmers throughout
the county on whom tho burden of taxes
The same may be said of T. W. Halliday
to whose watchfulness, financial ability and
careful study of the people's interest, dur
ing tho time, he has been chairman ol the
board of commissioners, tho county owes
much of its present prosperity. Ham
Irvln has served tho people in many capa
cities, and as thoir candidato will not fail to
receive a handsome majority over his op-
nonent. whose only claim to any kind of
popularity is that ho makes a first-class
end man in a negro ministrel bIiow.
Mr. Leek stands against a niau who
camo from another county to run for tho
office, and who, after tho election will, like
tho boy who crawlud through a hole in the
wall to Bteal apples, and found the
farmer on tho other side, go back tho way
ho camo. Tho question is not will tho pco
plo triumph and elect their candidates,
but how largo will their majority bo?
