A gentleman named King was ad

The republicans ot Illinois all at once

Yesterday morning, to tho regret of
his many friends, the death of Mr Isaac

quite all our people Ho was fifty years

A little after noon yesterday the re
port spread that Jack Lally had been run
over and killed by the cars on tho transfer

proved the report to bo untrue, but like

narrow escape from death. Ho was stand

and, having his back turned to

so to him, was caught by them nnil

From a letter received from James
Cannon, who is attending Notre Dame

be conferred on a Cairo boy, as there are
some threo hundred students attending this
A contemporary says: "It is worth
nothing that more than 75 per cent, of the
failures in business circles are of men who
do not advertise,' or if they advertise, do so
spasmodically, and, of course, without re
sults. On the other hand, the firms who
have successfully conducted their affairs
through panics and perilous times, have
been bold and nystcmatic advertisers, keep
ing themselves and their business promin
ently before the public."
For the benefit of the News, we will
state that only three eggs were thrown at
the republican procession on Tuesday night,
and from those who saw them thrown, we
learn that they came from the hands of the
hoodlumns who were probably hired to do
the dirty work by the republicans them
selves. The boy, who threw the rocks,
proved to be a republican, and since the
boys, who threw tho eggs are colored, we
conclude that they too are republicans and
wero either hired by republicans to throw
the eggs, or were actuated purely by a love

the first being a Mr. O'Neal, who resides
sixteen miles above this city on the Missis

city. After the ceremony they "took up
their bed and walked," so to speak, to the
residence of the gentleman aforesaid. We
are not permitted to give the name of the
second couple since they desire secrecy, at
least for the time being. They are white
and residents of this burg.
The republicans claim the credit of
whatever of prosperity the country is now
enjoying as a result of so-called resumption.
But workingmen will not forget that they
tramped tire country through from east to

putrid carcass of a jackass" has never been
denied even by his most intimate republi

and we are pleased to see that under our
tutorship he has became sufficiently truth

The Comiquo band serenaded Hon.
Johu Il.Oberly at the residence of dipt.
W. P. Ilitlliday night before last. A num
ber of citizens accompanied the baud with
the expectation that Mr. 0. would address
the crowd and they were not disappointed.
Aftor the band had played one of its choic
est pieces Mr. Oberly appeared and made a
short and appropriate talk and was enthusi
astically cheered. We wore not present and
are therefore ignorant of what hesaid,butaie
informed that he thoroughly appreciated
the excellent music ot the baud and the
tlioughtfulness of the boys generally and
in his anxiety to meet them tore a button
from oil' his night shirt.
--A correspondent writing to the Alton
Demociut says: "Hon. John H. Oberly
gave us last night one of his grand efforts,
uud he is certainly one ot nature's own
noblemen, lie fully and fairly explained
to a very largo audience the full text and
meaning of ".supervisors of election'," as
the United States law now stands. He
fully enlightened all his numerous hcurcs
as to tho practicle working of tho most
infamous -law. He ulso gavo the green
backers a good view of how they were be

-For the edification of our betting ele
ment we print the following from the re
vised statutes of Illinois: "Whoever Wets
or wagers any money, property or other
valuable thing, upon the result of an elec
tion which may be held under the constitu
tion or laws of this state, or bets or wagers
money, property or other valuable thing,
upon the number of votes which may be
given to any person at an election, or upon
who will receive the greatest number of
votes of an election ; or agrees to pay any
other person any money, property, or any
other valuable thing, in the event that an
election shall result in (me way, or in the
event that any person shall or shall not be
elected, or shall receive u greater ntimlicr of
votes than others, upon conviction thereof
he shall be lined in a sum not exceeding
$1,000, or imprisoned in the county jail not
exeeetling one year, or both, in the discre

Mr. Damron, who is making the race
on the republican ticket for states attorney,
against the people's candidate, Mr. Angus
Leek, has been furnished with mail bags
by those in 'charge of the post office in
this city in order that he might be enabled
to carry about with him the necessary
lothes and eatables. We would respect
fully call the attention of Col.
McKeaig to the fact that
the government is not indebted
to Mr. Daniton, and that under the law
he has no right to permit an outsider even
though he he republican office seeker
to use and misuse the property of the post-
office department. If Mr. Dumron is en
titled to the use of mail bugs for hi per
sonal convenience, then we hold that Mr.
eek is no less entitled to them, and the
department should lose no time in
supplying him with one. If the
mail bags nie furnished by the gov
ernment, in order that tho republican can
didates may be enabled to carry crackers,
sausages, "dirty clothes and campaign docu
ments about with them while out election
eering, then every office seeker in the hind
should be supplied. But, Colonel, if you
will read the law you will find that the
bags were furnished for an entirely differ
ent purpose, and the people expect you to
do your sworn duly by refusing the use of
them to every Tom, Dick aud Harry for
personal purposes, although he votes for an
administration, which retains you in office.
Not very long tigo in fact only a few
days ago -one of our attorneys asked Mr.
John Reeve what his cost was for natural
izing democratic voters. Mr. Reeve said
that he would not issue the necessary pa
pers for less than five dollars. The attor
ney called his attention to the law, which
was very clear on the subject, and
which fixed the charge at a
much less amount, but notwithstanding
Mr. Reeve insisted that ho would not issue
tho papers for a less amount. The attorney,
who is no other person than Mr. Angus
Leek, being anxious to have certain geu
tlcmen nutrrulizcd, hereupon told him to
issue the desired papers for Mr. Kxpartee.
Win. A. Rice, who is a painter In tho em
ploy of Mr. B. F. Blake. Accordingly the
papers wero issued and Mr. Reeve made
out his fee bill, which Amounted to four
dollars and thirty cents. This was the
greatest possible amount ho could charge,

some excuse for overcharging on every
item. Mr. LeeW was justly indignant at

democrats by fleecing them and on Saturday
last, while Judge Baker was holding court
in this city, entered a motion to quash the
bill. The judge entertained the motion
and quashed the bill, stating at the same
time that Mr. John Reeves had charged
Mr. Rice one dollar and sixty-five cents
more than the law allowed. This is not
our stutemcut, but a matter of record and
we know that even our republican friends
will not object to our entering a protest
and giving publicity to such a ca.e of will
ful violation of law. Mr. Rueve knew
that he was violating the law at the time
he made the charges, because the law was
read to him, but he trusted that the matter
would not be brought before the circuit
court and that he would be that much "in"
by the transaction. Possibly he was not
actuated by a selfish motive but by a pure
love for the nation with a big N and be
lieved that by preventing Democrats from
taking out naturalization pupers by over
charging them he was, to use bis own
expiession. assisting in "maintaining the
union of these states." But whether the
one or the other was his motive, bis action
can only receive the condemna
tion of the thinking men
of both parties. Among those
whom he also overcharged are Mr. Robert
Smyth aud Mr. Dennis Hill, and we have
it directly from other gentlemen who
have thus lieen fleeced of their money,
that unless Mr. Reeves voluntarily returns
to them the proper amount, they will sue
him in court for the recovery of the same.
