We suggest to the merchants and

next, the day of election, they close their

What the democrats should beat from

ticket is safe nnd the state
ticket is sure to be elected if the full vote

The tiro bells rang out vigorously
about five o'clock last evening. The cause
of the alarm was a fire in the grocery ot
Mr. Jno. Clancy, which was caused by the
explosion of a coal oil lamp. The lamp
was standing on the counter and Mr
Clancy's little boy, Johnnie, accidentally
knocked it down, when it exploded, and
the burning oil spread upon the .floor. The
little boy fell into tho flrery pool and was
set afire, but his father cnuie to the resent
and saved liim from what might have been
a horrible death. As it is, though severely
burnt from his neck down his back,
the boy will recover in a week or ten days
Mr. Clancy himself had one of his
hands badly scorched. No damage
was done to the house, though it might
have destroyed the entire property, ns u
barrel full of oil was standing within a
few feet of the tire.
The resolution adopted by a few of
the colored voters of this city at a meeting
in the court house night before last is any
thing but a manifestation of a proper un
derstanding on their part either of the
political rights ol the gentlemen against
whom it is directed, or of their own inter
ests. It proves that its authors were either
entirely ignorant of the underlaying causes
of the action of Mr. Bird and bis collegms,
or did not appreciate these causes and do
not grasp the real objects these gentlemen
have in view. That Mr. Bird or any other
man has a perfect right to change his
political views they seem to regard as a
novel and somewhat dangerous idea, es
pecially if the culpit is one of their own
color, and hence they see fit to denounce
Mr. Bird and his collegties as traitors for
daring to be free, indeed, and, not satisfied
with this, they even seek to draw the ill
will of the colored men of the entire state
down upon their heads. It the men, who
drew up and adopted the resolution referred
to, would take the trouble to inform them
selves as to the reasons that actuated Mr.
Bird and others, nnd the objects they have
in view, they would see the silli
ness and injustice ot their resolution.
The reasons that prompted the action of
the Bloomington convention were two-fold.
First, Mr. Oberly's known sympathy for
the colored men, which has manifested it
self both iu words and actions on innumer
able occasions, not only while editing Tiik
Bulletin, but also while he was a memlxir
of the Illinois legislature. Andsecondly,
Mr. Dement's known enmity toward the
colored man, which has also cropped out in
words and actions. Mr. Oberly has always
advocated the rights of the colored man as
free citizen of a free country, among
which was the right to share the benefits
of our free school system, and while in the
Illinois legislature, labored and voted in
favor of the appropriation for our schools.
On the other hand, Mr. Dement, Mr.
Oberly's opponent, voted against this bill
and has frequently shown that he regards
the colored man only as a repub
lican tool. When a colored man,
named Scott, was proposed as a candidate
in a convention recently held in Chicago
Mr. Dement hissed, aud taking the floor,
unhesitatingly expressed his disapproval
of such action, sayiug,atnong other things,
that the colored people of the state should
not yet aspire to any office. This is only
one instance. A number of others could
be cited where he boldly expressed himself
as opposed to the best interests ot the col
ored people. These are the reasons why
Mr. Bird and the other representatives of
the nineteen districts, assembled in Bloom
ingtou, decided to break the iron bold of
the party in powcr,asscrt their high preroga
tive, and vote for their true friend, Oberly,
in preference to their open enemy, Dement.
And now, their object is not to abandon the
republican party and "sell out" the colored
voters of their respective districts; but to
seek the election ot the best man as secre
tary of state, by stating tho tacts to their
colored friends, and then allowing
them to act ns they may please.
They are republicans still and will work
for the success of tho entire republican
ticket, national and state with the solitary
exception of Dement the outspoken enemy
of their race, and shall they for this reason
be persecuted 1 Will tho colored people of
this county heap denouneiations upon the
heads of Messrs. Bird and Scott, because
they ignore party ties and aro laboring for.
the best interests of their kind? Tho pro
ceedings, at the court house, have that ap
pearance. But wo kuow that the resolution
is not an expression of the will of the col
ored peoplo here. It was the work of a few
sore heads, who are in tho habit of kicking
up a rumpus nt tho dictation ot the white
leaders, whenever said white leaders be
lieve that they are loosing their grip upon
the colored voters.
THE FREE SCHOOL'S ENEMY.
At the last session which ho served In
tho senate, Henry C. Dkmknt, voted
against tho bill appropriating ouo million
of dollars for tho free schools of the state.

lieve thai our people can be so blind to the
interests of our city and county as to rote
for Mr. Damroin. It is true, he has been
admitted to the practice of law, but we
would remind our readers that
Justus Cunnin''hnin ha- also
been admitted to the bar and
that a person to be permitted to enter upon
the practice of the profession needs but be
prepared to answer a few stereotyped
questions correctly. The office of states
attorney is perhaps the most important iu
the county ; it is one that requires a man
who has a thorough knowledge of the law.
It requires a man who can grapple w ith
such men as D. T. Linegar, J. M. Laufden,
S. P. Whecler,(ireenfc Gilbert, etc. He must
be a man who can hold his own against the
efforts of old heads, and unless he is Mich
a man we may expect Tue aequitai ol

Judge Baker flushed the Fee Bill and

The News has termed our charge
against Mr. John Reeve, of overcharg
ing for issuing naturalization papers, "a
slander," aud has attempted to reply to
it by keeping1 before the jieople a raid
signed by a number of men, setting
forth that THEY had not been over
charged. We never stated that THEY
hud been overcliHrged, but did say that
Mr. Wm. Rice aud Robert Smyth had
been o erchiirged, and in order to prove
that these gentlemen WERE
overcharged, it ' is only neces
sary to refer to the fact that
Mr. Reeve personally returned three
dollars of the overcharges to Mr. Smyth
on Friday. October 22nd, after The Bul

to have overcharged Mr. Rice.
