That Mr. John Reeve had overcharged Mr.

was compelled to return to Mr. Robert
Smyth three dollars of the overcharges,
And, finally, it should bo born m mind that
while Mr. Reeve overcharged democrats he
issued tho papers free of cost to republicans.
The record ot the circuit court bears us
out in this.
We arc not a "prophet nor the son of
prophet," but it is our opinion that
there is more Jov in the republican party
of Cairo now, than there will be after the
melancholy days of November" have come
and gone, and we also believe, nnd a good
many lending republicans are with us iu
that belief, that dating from the day the
old Cairo Sun was merged into a campaign
sheet, miscalled the News, there has been
entirely too much Jov in that party for its
own good. Tho fact is the republicans
should have had the opinion of a cood
physiognomist before accepting their man.
Tho News is troubled because the Bulle
tin boards its apprentices and a tew of the
men employed. This does not trouble us
at all, and for the benefit ot the gentleman
from Carmi we will here say (and if he
desires, we will prove it to Ins and every
body elses satisfaction)that for one employe
the news has in its office who boards where
he pleases, The Bi'llkti.n, lias three in its

also add that we do not believe there is a

that individual stated that he knew
well enough that Mr. Reeve bad over
charged democrats for naturalization pa
pers and that the circuit court had so
lecided, but that it was customary to ilo
so immediately preceding an election and
that Mr. Reeve would have been a d d
fool if he hadn't taken all the money he
could yet. He further stated that Mr.
Reeve ought to have kept the overcharge
which lie returned to Mr. Robert Smyth.
tnd that the card he was publishing was
nly intended to smooth over the mat
ter in the minds of those men who had
not licen reached by the facts. The Re
publican who tells us this exprests his in
tention of voting for Mr. Irvin.
Day before- yesterday, for the first
time since Mr. J. M. Datnron has taken up
lis residence in this city, he enjoyed the
privilege of appearing in our police cour'8
in his professional capacity. Requesting
the privilege, he was permitted to defend
Mr. Joseph Reeves, the man who is im
plicated in the stealing of the gold watch
aud chains from , Mr. John Steltzer.
Although he had a right to do so, it was by
no means commendable that he sh old
show an anxiety to assist a man in making
his escape who, it was pretty well known,
was indirectly the cause ot tho goods hav
ing been stolen. Mr. Steltzer is an honest
and hard working citizen and if Mr. Damron
desired an opportunity to display his ability,
he could much more appropriately have
tendered his services to that gentlemau.
Ho was informed of this fact yesterday
morning and told that his action against
Mr. Steltzer would cause Mr. Steltzer's
German friends to vote against him, when
he immediately abandoned the case and
permitted Reeves to get out of his dilem
ma as best ho could. This last action of
his is tho most unpardonable and unprofes
sional ever heard of. By abandoning the
case alter be had undertaken it he violated
the oath ho took when lie was admitted to
the bar and showed weakness that
is anything but a credit to him.
But never having practiced law before it is
hardly to bo expected that his manner of
hnndlingcases should not be unprofessional.
Thero is a fact connected with Mr,
Reeve's liberality toward his republican
friends who needed naturalization papers
that is perhapB not generally understood.
As we have before stated Mr. Recvo has
given some of his republican friends their
papers freo of charge, as a sort ot bribe
for their votes on Novembor second. It
tuny be that ho has not been aware of tho
fact, but true it is never-the-less that every
time he Issued those papers freo of charge
ho took tho cost of such service out of tho
pockets of tho people. And this is tho
ways it occurs: The law fixes Mr. Rueve's
salary at a certain amount, to bu raised by
fees winch he Is by law required to collect.
It allows him to tako tht amount of
salary out of the fees collected and to turn

the surplus, if there be any, into thr;
county treasury. If he fails to collect
enough fees to cover the amount of his
salary he reports the deficiency to the
commissioners who then adow that iletl
ciency out of other funds. So that it
will bo seen that by Mr. Reeve's
failure to collect the lawful tees
from his politicul friends, the peo
ple become liable for tliem and must foot
the bill when settling up day comes, unless
Mr. Reeve makes up the defirienoy by col-
cting moke than hi- lawful fees trotu

The News has attempted to create the
impression that Mr. Alex. Il.Irvm left this
citv on November :!, for Montana,
with the intention of remaining away. In
order to prove that ho had no such iuten-
tion we give place to the following card,
which Mr. Irvin published in these col
umns immediately before hU departure.
In it he said: "I shall' be absent iu the
west until the first of next June." and as
our readors well know.it was onlv fifteen
ivs after that time that he made his re
appearance here. He left on a vi-:t to a
brother whom he had not seen for eighteen
years and kept his householdturniturr here
with the intention ot roumiti? home-keep

ANOTHER KALSHOOD DISPROVES.
It is to be regretted that we are con
stantly compelled to deny the f:le chsiges
of the News and its correspondents. AVe
are aware that it is boring to the readers,
but iustlce demands that, bv publishiti:
the truth, we prove the authors of those
charges guilty of base prevarication. The
News has made the statement that Mr.
Irvin, in a conversation with Wm. llol
den, said "ho never allowed his servants to
eat at the same table with himself," but
we did not at the time take the trouble to
deny the falsehood. But in yesterday ev
ening's issue it publishes a communication
signed "Trim" in which the same falsehood
is reittcrated. Were it not for the satis
faction we find in proclaiming the truth
and thwarting the designs of slanderers, we
would not notice even this communication,
bold as it is in its asettion ot an untruth;
tor th whole matter is one of extreme in
significance; which could not iu the least
injure Mr. Irwin in the estimation
of the people. "Trim" says that j
Mrs. McRaven would not tell an untruth."
The following affidavits say otherwise. Ij
must bo understood that this, Mrs. Mc
Raven asserted that the conversation with
Mr. llolden, referred to in the affidavits,
took place in the presence ot Jas. A. Far
rott and Elizabeth llolden. This, these
parties and Mr. llolden, emphatically deny
under oath, thus giving the lie to Mrs. M
Raven's assertion. Thu following are the
