Tho funeral of Mr. Michael Mahanny
took place yesterday afternoon, at two

the train at the foot of Fourteenth street,
which took tho remains to Villa Ridge for

We stated in a recent issue of The
Bulletin that "a number of tho colored
school children, with their parents and
teachers, were before Squire Osborn," and
here is the way the Springfield Register
takes it up: "They had the whole colored
school of Cairo before a justice's court, one
day last week, for quarreling among them
selves, but the offense was so well divided
up among the lot that no one in particular
could be punished." Tho propensity of
some newspaper men to manufacture sensa
tionalists items for tho public is irrcprcs-
sivo and often makes its possessor ludicrous.
Tho weather predictions ot Vennor's
Almanac proved wonderfully correct for
tho months of December and January, and
those who have compared them with the
weather, as it occuned, will no doubt wish
to know what the same meteorologist has
to say of tho kind of weather that may be
looked for during the month ot February.
Vennor says that the mild interval with
which January closed will probably con
tinue well into February, with the excep
tion of a day or two up to tho 12th, with
balmy, spring-liko weather in many parts,
the snow rapidly disappearing. Then a
couple of days of blustering weather, with
rain or snow. This is to bo followed by
Btiow-storins and cold weather throughout
tho western States. About the 10th, storms
of wind, snow or rain, followed by a colder
term. The lost week 'will open with bril
liant, mild, spring-like weather, melting
the snow. A few days before tho close of
the month, high winds are likely to pre
vail, with gales around New York and
other points, and blustering weather in the
northern States. The last two days of Feb
ruary aro likely to bo fuir, with little snow
remaining on the ground.
One of tho most interesting meetings
ever held in the rooms of the Woman's
Club and Library association was that of
yesterday afternoon. It was a rare literary
feast, prepared by experienced tuminine
ininds,ond highly enjoyed by all who had the
good foitune to bo present. Tho attend
enco was very large, probably owing to the
fact that it was known before
band what the exercises would
consist of, and who wero to take
paitin them. The chief attractions of tho
occasion wero tho selection, read by Mrs.
P.A.Powell, entitled "Tho Traveled Par
son," and a paper by Mrs. A. B. Hafford, en
titled "Journeying, in Sicily, Malta and
Tunis." The former was full ot "food for
thought," exceedingly well read
and listened to with deep
Interest throughout by all present,
Tho latter pnper was a highly entertaining
account of Mrs. 811 fiord's travels through
tho cities named, well written and well
read. It was accompanied and illustrated
by photographs, models from
Carthago and costumes from tho
different countries. Mis. Safford hold
tho close attention of her auditors
from tho first to tho last word sho ultorcd.
It is possible that future meetings of tho
association will bo equal to yesterday's In
tho character of their exercises, for tho as
sociation has considerable talent to draw
upon, but there will never be one to ex
"The decision of tho attorney-genera
that an election for county clerk, county
judge, treasurer, etc,, will have to be held
this fall is creating considerable comment
Tho republicans generally announce that
they must put in truo-blue republicans in
those offices; that democrats have already
too much of "tho fat of tho land" here. A
county that giyes 226 republican majority
should ha ye more than one republican offi
cial." News. Wo should think that Mr,
Joy and "the republicans generally," had
learned something at tho last county elec
tion. It is impossible that they can have
failed to observe what tho people of tho
county think of dragging national
politics into county and city
affairs, for they expressed their will
in a manner that ought to penetrate to tho
understanding of the most thick sculled
politician in tho country. The result of tho
election, so far as it concerned the county,
was a scathing rcbuko to tho republican
leaders and managers, and showed
beyond tho possibility of a doubt,
that local elections must bo conducted
upon a purely local basis, and the national
parties must stand aloof from them. This
is right. Tho best interests of the city and
county cannot bo conserved when a party
formed for tho furtherance of national
principles and without any reference
whatever to tho interests of the
city jr county, presumes to select
city and county officers. Local officers
should be selected according to their worth
and their fitness for tho office, which is to
be filled, taking also into consideration the
views they entertain upon tho affairs over
which they aro to have control. Tho peo
pic have said so, and so mote be. Bear
this in mind ye lorne republican leaders (?)
and do not let an overdose of Joy ( nt a
temporary national victory) ogain mislead
Mr. John B. (tough, the great temper
ance orator, with whom our Reform club
has opened a correspondence with a view
to securing his presence here, was in Ox
ford, England, some time ago, delivering
his characteristically powerful temperance
lecture to the college students there
and, upon 0110 occasion, it is
said, tho students sent him word
that they "would not have any temperance"
and advised him not to persist in lecturing;
but he went to tho hall and for twenty
minutes he spoke in pantoniimo amid the
deafening cat-rails of the boys. Finally he
stepped forward, demanded British fait play,
and offered to whip every one of the five
hundred students singly. This offer was
loudly cheered, and promptly' accepted, and
a big six-foot athlete was sent upon the
stage. Gough, who is a little man, backed
off as the big fellow approached him, and
explained: "My friends, you evidently
misunderstand me. This is to be an intel
lectual contest, not a prize-fight." The
students cheered again at this evidence of
the American's shrewdness, and ordered
debate to proceed. The college lad was,
therefore, obliged to discuss with tho tem
perance champion. He was at a disadvan
tage, but ho quoted scripture, and reminded
tho plucky lecturer that it was ono of the
apostles who wrote to Timothy a young
man, too, like themselves to tako a little
wine for the stomach's sake, and for his
other infirmities. The lads shouted vocife
rously at this. Gough slowly examined tho
six-footer from top to too, and then said,
"My friends, look at this athlete, this fel
low witli muscles like steel, who can wield
the club of Hercules; who can bend an
English yeoman's bow; who could knock
lown an ox with tho blow of a hammer.
Ho is the personification of health and
strength, but ho thinks ho needs a little
wino for his stomach's sake!'1 Cough's
inimitable manner of saying this had a
tremendous effect. Tho students fairly
yelled with delight and their defeated
champion retreated. Another was sent up.
He was the intellectual giant of his class,
in contradistinction to tho six-footer. He,
with much Hclf-confjdcncc, made a finished
argument for liquor drinking, based on
Christ's changing tho water into wino at
the wedding feast. His comrades cheered
lim to the echo, and thought his argument
unanswerable, and Gough was chaffed for
lis defeat. "Young men," said ho, solemn
ly. "I admit that your champion has
forestalled mo. Ho has said to me iust
what I caiuo hero to charge you to do
drink all the wino you can find that is
made entirely out of water."
Yesterday atternoon, about 2:H0
o'clock, City Marshal Robinson, while
standing near ono corner of Eighth street
and Commercial avenuo, had his suspicions
aroused in some way as to the character of
the business carried on in "that little room
with ono door and no window," situated in
tho rear portion of tho Vin
cent block, on tho corner of Eighth
street and Commercial avenue, Rnd ho con
cluded to find out whether his suspicions
wero well founded or not. Accordingly ho
called Officers Schuckors and Lalluo to
his assistance, and tho three cautiously
proceeded through the narrow, dark gang
way that leads to tho rear
of tho bidding, and tho chief
gavo throo gentle taps at tho door.
Strangely enough ho had given the correct
signal, tho door was opancd and thoofflcors
entered, to tho consternation ot several
nobby looking young fellows, four of thorn
whlto and generally supposed to bo younji
gentlemen, The evidences of tho character

them as tho evidence, tho law and tho
gravity of tho offense demand.
A few days ago Mr. Harrington offer
ed, in tho Illinois legislature, an amend
ment to tho garnishment act, so as to pro
vide that when guarncshee process is issued
all wages duo tho dependent, shall be ex
empt from garnishment, when any part of
tho plaintiff's claim shall bo due for intoxi
eating liquors. Mr. Harrington seems to
have a very peculiar idea of justice. Wo
are compelled to believe that he is either
an arch scoundrel, in that he would
knowingly nnd wilfully, rob his fellowmcn
and help others to do tho same, or that he
is utterly devoid of tho God-given power
of distinguishing right from wrong, and
therefore irresponsible for what ho
seeks to accomplish. In either case, the
man does not belong where he is in the
legislature of Illinois. Tor Bulletin is
in favor of temperance; in favor of the
abolition of tho liquor traffic; in favor of
wiping from the faco of the earth, every
vestago of an evil, which has in the past
does at present nnd will as long
as it exists, fill the hearts of many thousands
with sorrow; and, as we havo raised our
voice in favor of the eradication of whisky
etc., in the past, so will we continuo to do
in tho future. But we are in favor, also, of
accomplishing that purpose by means
which have at least tho semblance of fair
ness and justice. It is a crime to rob even
the robber. It will be said by some, that
the man who would be instrumental in the
destruction of the happiness of his fellow
men, whoso mail to oppulancc is marked
by broken hearts nnd drunkards1 graves
and the skeletons of children, starved, does
not deserve to bo treated fair
ly. Hut lias it ever occurred
to this poor, blinded zealot that two
wrongs do not make one right; that the
men ho would place beyond tho pale of
human justice are not all devils, but human
beings like himself, who havo unfortu
nately drifted into a business, which, like
other things sanctioned by law, work evil
A MONO THOSE WHO PATRONIZE IT?
That there are jmrsons engaged in the
liquor traffic, who are hardly worthy the
nainc of man.is true; but what occupation is
there in which no scoundrels are engaged?
There is a phase of the question, which
seems to be veiy generally overlooked
There is a vast amount of money invested
in the lawful manufacturing business in
this state, which furnishes employment to
hundreds of men, and a market for millions
of bushels of tho products of our soil.
Those who invested their money in this
way, did so in good faith, and the law
has recognized their business as legitimate.
Mr. Harrington would leave untouched the
law, which makes the state a party to the
evil lie, and we all, so much deplore, and
by the authority of which a business,
which causes so much misery is allowed to
thrive; but he would enact another law,
which would add injustice to injury,
by inaugurating a system of
ogalizcd swindling. In marked contrast
to this is the Hindes' bill, which has our
hearty approval, and which provides that
it shall be left to the people, both male and
female, ofanycityor county, whether or
not the sale of intoxicating drinks shall be
permitted in their midst. We feel confl
dent that the temperance pcoplu here, as
elsewhere, do not approve of Mr. Harring
ton's amendment, but will, with us, ap
plaud Mr. Moody, when, being asked by a
reformed drunkard whether or not he
should pay the gambling debts and liquor
bills which he incurred before his change
of heart, he replied: "Pay every dollar! pay
them all, to tho uttermost farthing, even if
t leaves you penniless; then start right."
