As nn attempted offset to the recently
resurrected Garfield-Morey letter, many of
the republican papers arc ornamenting tho
head of their editorial columns with double
leaded reproductions of "Garfield on the
Labor Question," from bis letter of accept
ance. This is commendnblo enterprise, and
Mr. Garfield's sage deliverances upon Hiq
important topic form n mental repast
quite icfreshing; but unfortunately for Mr.
G. and his iournalistic supporters,
tho American workingmun of to
day is a wide-awake, intelligent per
son and doesn't entertain the remotest idea
of being deluded upon the present or any
other occasion. The contents of the Morey
letter havo apparently opened his eyes to a
very wido extent. Accordingly, ho will con
tinue to ponder that mysterious bit of cor
respondence, thus honoring the ancient
adago that where there is so much smoke
there is bound to exist a littlo tlanio. As a
natural result, the Republican enndidnto

An account of the latest sickeniug
trngedy which occurred near Charleston
Mo., appeared in these columns a few days
ago. While it is a pleasing fact that the
monster Lovett, after the murder of his
wife, promptly rid tho world ot his own
presence by cutting his throat, his depart
ed spirit must be condemned, first, for beat
ing out his wife's brains at all, and, sec
ond, for performing the operation with a
flat iron. The flat iron and all other do
mestic utonsils are, by reason of a time
honored custom, essentially the weapons of
the softer sex and should never be grasped
with murderous intent by man. This

cameso irresistably jubilant over a visit to
that city of the newly elected Governor
Porter that he felt constrained to blow out
his eyes and blow off his arms w ith a can
non, and now it is announced that John
Gaus and Philip Barbed, of Brooklyn, be
came insolved on the holy Sabbath day in a
political discussion, during which John
took up tho idea that he could improve the
general political outlook bv plunging a
logger into Philip's abdomen, thus elim
inating to the extent of one.
Mr. Marshall, the candidate for coro
ner on the republican ticket, has Bought the
coroner's position ever since he has been in
the coflin business. He has on hand quite
a large stock of rough board cotlius, which
he has been unable to dispose of and which
will be a dead stock on his hands unless
lie is elected to the position, winch lie so
muc h desires. Mr. Fitzgerald, his oppo
nent, who is running on the independent
ticket, has no axe to grind, he does not
seek his own interest, but the interest of
the people who have brought him out.
The records show that he has saved the
county more money than any other cor
oner who has preceded him, and for this
reason and no other d. we hope that the
people will carefully scratch the name of
L. S. Marshall on Tuesday next.
We have it directly from a gentleman
who yesterday camo to this city from San
dusky precinct that the mail bag, which
was furnished Mr. J. M. Damron for his
personal use and which he left in "soak"
for the drinks at the precinct aforesaid, has
not yet been redeemed. It is an United
States mail bag, No. U, and, ot course, was
furnished him by some person counected
with the post office department. It is hard
ly probable that it should have-dropped
trom heaven, or that Mr. Damron should
have shaken it out of his sleeve. Those
gentlemen, who, a few days ago, under
took to collect money with which to redeem
the bug, have given it up as a bad job ami
now express themselves that either Mr.
Damron should bo made to pay for his
drinks, or the government employe who
loaned him the bag should pay for its loss.
The democrats of this county have
made every preparation to prevent illegal
voting on next Tuesday. Thn necessary
committees have been appointed to remain
at every polling place in the county from
the time the polls open till they close, and
money has Ik-cu raised with which to vigor
ously prosecute all those who attempt to
vote ami nre not entitled to do so. There
will be nt) child's play about the prosecu
tion. It will be rigid and thorough, as it
should be, and those who are caught at the
attempt to cast an illegal vote may certainly
expect to Buffer the fullest penalty of the
law. That thrre are a number of men in
this community who will attempt to vote
illegally we know and their names are not
unknown to tho committees who will be
stationed at the polls. We give this voice
of warning for their benefit in the hope that
they will profit by it.
It is a fact and one that by no means
speaks well for our citizens that men are
permitted to take up their residence in
this city and one week after having done so
are permitted to run for office. Mr. J. M.
Damron. who isrunnicg on the republican
ticket for states attorney, has not been in
the city long enough to learn the names of
our streets. He does not know what
churches or schools we have in our midst,
but is shoved forward on tho peoplo by a
packed convention, and has tho imprudence
to ask our people that they support him iu
preference of Mr. Leek who studied law in
this city for many years; was admitted to
the bar and has built up
a lucrative practice by his
ability and closo atteution to business.
We do not appeal to the prejudico of our
readers. Wo appeal to their reason and
ask them to rebuko the impudence of a
carpct-bngger who has no knowledge of
law and posscses no ability to recommend
him to the voter. Wo ask tho business
men and others who aro interested in good
government and who desiro the vigorous
prosecution of criminals, to scratch tho
the namo of Mr. Damron who, U ho were
elected, would really disgrace
the county by the exhibition
of his ignorance and childish prattle.
Wo ask our republican friends, iu tho name
of reiwm, not to permit themselves to bo so
blinded by political considerations as to
saddle upon the county a man who was un
able to nuke a living by the practice of
the law in his own county, and wios com
pelled to resort to clerking in a dry goods
store for a livinir ; who has not been en
trusted with a single case since he has been
in our miust and who if he were elected
would put the county to extra expense by
requiring an assistant in the prosecution ot
criminals. We ask our taxpayers to con
sult their own interest before they vqte for
Mr. Damron. We legnrd him as our
friend, ami wish him well, but think more
of the interests of the county than we do
of his own interests and bo should every
The News says: "It is a base false
hood that Mr. Reeve left tow n and sent his
deputy ofTat any time to prevent the nat
uralization of any citizen." A few days
tgo the News itself stated that Mr. Reeve
was in the country on the day referred to,
aud his deputy personally informed us that
e attended Dan Rice's show on the same
ay. Among the gentlemen w ho visited
the office and found no one to attend to
their wants were Messrs. John Kennedy,
John Darmody and Mike MeQ.iinn and it
the editor of the News w ill interview these
gentlemen he will learn that Mr. Samuel
Iluram took it upon himself to isue tho
papers for them because Mr. Reeve and his
deputy weie nowhere to be lound. This
was on Saturday before last. Of course
it is an eany matter to denounce w hat we
83y as false and heap personal abuse upon
us, but the News man should remember
thtt by so doing he disproves nothing and
that a few statements of fact from him
would occasionally be acceptable.
The News of last evening publishes the
card of persons, denying that Mr. Reeve
overcharged them for their naturalization
papers, as we said it would. Its only
comment is a whine, four lines in length,
in which it pleads lor tho "crippled soldier
candidate." It knows that the card does
not answer the point we mado and simple
as it has been in other matters, it docs not
crow over this vindication (?) of its crooked
idol. With the exception of four, the
names signed to the card, are all those of
persons who paid for th:ir papers subse
quent to the (Incision of the court which
restricted Mr. Reeve to one dollars and
sixty cents, and the four exceptions referred
to. viz: Messrs. Resell, Egan, Ogy
and Gayer, were told that
their papers would cost them
four dollars and a half. But when tho time
for paying came the decision of tho court
had been rendered and Mr. Reeve collected
only tho lawful fee. These men could,
with perfect consistency, sign the papers
they did, and we have no doubt but that
Mr. Reeve could obtain fifty more names
to the same card, but among all of them ho
could not get the names of Messrs. Robert,
Smyth and Rice, nor of Judge Baker, w ho
having under consideration one of Mr.
Reeve's fee bills, decided it to be greatly
in excess of what thn law allowed him.
We did not charge that Mr. Reeve had
overcharged any ot the gentlemen whoso
names are attached to tho card the News
publishes, and thoir card is there
fore entirely uncalled for. But
wo did charge and repeat with all
tho force that a firm conviction
of right lends us that Mr. Reeve did over
charge Messrs. Rice, Smyth and others, ami
wo challenge tho News or Mr. Reevo or
any one else to deny our charge. Do not
beat about the bush by publishing a col
umn of names of persons, denying that
which we never asserted. It will not do to
setup a creation of your own, call it ours,
then striko it down and cry triumphantly:
"Behold another lie uailod !" Tho ques
tion Is: Did Mr. Reeve kuowingly charge
Messrs. Rice and Smyth more than he was
by law allowed todo? And we demand eith
er an unequivocal auswer or silence, which
is equal to an honest admission of tho

ttnth. Shall we have this or not? Will
the News or Mr. Reeve continue their
evasive umneovers designed to mislead the
people, and whitewash the unlawful acts of
one of their servants?
Will the News in the face of tbe futt that
Mr. Reeve virtually acknowledged his
guilt by returning the overcharge to Mr.
Smyth, in compliance with Judge Baker's
decision, still seek to shield him? Will
Mr. Reeve, in the face of the recotds of the
court, persist in his weak, indirect denials
will he continue to take refuge be
hind "cards" that have no bearing what
ever upon tho point in question?
lie and tho News have pursued a mean
course in this matter. They have soutrht
to deceive tho people in a matter of con
siderable importance to thorn and have in
sulted public opinion by believing, even
tor a moment, that the lame excuses they
offered would be taken as a complete vindi
cation of official irregularity that the peo
ple were too blind to see the glariDg
wrong that had been practiced.
If we have not spoken the truth when
we said that Mr. Reeve asked and took a
larger fee for isuing naturalization papers
than he was by law allowed to do, let him
deny it through these or any other eclumns
and prove us wrong, and we will hold our
peace. We ask "only this and nothing
ANOTHER WILLFUL LIE NAILED.
We copy the following paragraph from
yesterday's Cairo News:
Gov. Cullom vetoed the "truck bill,"a bill
intended to force laboring men to trade
with their employers exclusively, and giv
ing employers the right to forco their men
to board with them so that establishments
like the Bulletin can be privileged to bleed
Whether the above paragraph is intended
by the editor for downright lying, or is the
result of reckless ignorance we do not
The "truck bill" was not iutended to
force laboring men to trade with their em
ployers; on the contrary, it was intended to
protect laboring men from being forced by
their employers to trade with anybody to
whom the employers might givo orders. If
the "truck bill" had not been vetoed by
Governor Cullom, there would now be a
law in Illinois compelling employers to
pay the wages of laborers in money, and
not in orders ou stores and groceries,
as is done in many parts of the stale.
There was no excuse for Cullom. He
violated the will of tho laboring man
when ho vetoed tho "truck bill." And the
lying, or ignorant efforts of the News can
not protect him.

paying investment. There is no company
like the Equitable, and no policy like the
Tontine. I recommend the Equitablo to
everybody becauso the insurance is sure,
and because the money paid for it is not an
expense, but comes back with interest. If I
