change in which it was said that a man
from Cairo, who had established himself at
Burnside, 111., as a watch-maker, had left
the city atter having obtaiucd a number of
watches to repair from the citizens of the
place. He left no trail behind by which
his whereabouts might be discovered and,
perhaps, ho gloried in the success of his
swindini' scheme. But if he did, he
i'loried too soon, for he was being looked
for and ho has been found. Mr. Lon

him down here yesterday evening to take
him to the scene of his dishonest deeds

city for an injury he received by falling

the lower court sustaining Mr. Bross in his
denial of tho city's right to do so. Wheth

itself equally selfish. Its question is cosily
answered. Tne. Bulletin's record, we
may be allowed to say without risking a
question as to our veracity, is about os well
known as that of the News. It is known
that it has always been a democratic paper,
but it has not been a rnntankcrous demo

The Bulletin saw itself compelled to
speak of the record of one or two of them
to lay bare certain facts that were not gen
erally known and this tho News terms
"stooping to the vilest and filthiest of mud."
Well, wo must admit that tho News is
right. The Bulletin did stoop it had
to stoop. It had to stoop very low in or
der to reach tho pit in which somo ot the
republican candidates had been wallowing.
And though Bomo . of tho things it ex

dulled senso of tho editor ot tho Nows, as
it appears yet they woro facts.
This the News does not deny. If they
were "vile" and "filthy" it is certainly no
fault of The Bulletin. It seems that,

editor of the News was not looked upon
as very much "pumpkin" by his party as
