On tho 5th instant, at 4:30 o'clock in
tho morning, Mr. E. E. Barnard, an astrono
mer of Nashville, Tcnn., discovered that tho
nucleus in Crul's comet had separated into
three unequal fragrant; tho largest being
estimated to be 15,000 miles in length. Tho
spaces between tho fragments of the nu
cleus are estimated at not less than 2,000
miles. Mr, Barnard observed
that tho nucleus had assumed the form of
a long strip not less than 2-1,000 miles in
length and 3,000 miles in breadth. Other
astronomers from tho principal observatories
of tho country have sinco corroborated Mr.
Mrs. Sayors, mother of the foreman of
The Bulletin news room, diod early yes
terday morning after a long illcess. Her
remains were taken to BJandvillo yesterday
afternoon, for interment. She leaves only
three children to mourn her loss, her hus
band having diod only about a year ago.
Of the children, "Jack" is tho only boy and
next to the oldest, and upon him his sisters
will now depend for support, as they
and their mother had done sinco tho father
er's death. But Jack will doubtless be
equal to the task. Ho is a brave boy; has
been connected with TnE Bulletin offico
for a number of years, starting as "devel"
and now holding a very responsible position.
Ho and his sisters are deserving of all
sympathy in their great loss.
A white man named Ed Higgins, a
towboat man, camo into tllo city Friday,
and the following night ho forcibly gained
entrance to tho barber shop of tho colored
man, Freeman, on Ohio levee, and took
away a satchel containing various articles
of male apparel. Ho took the satchel up
the levee some distance and hid it. Then
returned to the shop for more. But his
second attempt proved less successful. lie
was beard, the alarm was given and before
he could tako many steps ho was in the
iron grasp of Officer John P. llogan who
took him to tho city jail. Yesterday morn
ing he was brought before Magistrate Com
ings for examination, but he waived tnis
and was held to bail in the sum of two.btin
dred dollars to answer the charge of burs-
lary before a higher court.
Ti e German voters of Illinois, and of
this district particularly, like the German
voters of Ohio, have gone back on Repub
licanism, because that party went back on
one of tho vital principles of this govern
ment, and have determined to suppoittlie
Democratic ticket at the coming election.
They are opposed to that doctrine of Re
publicanism so, emphatically declared in
Kansas and Iowa, that nineteen temperate
men should be punished because the twen
tieth member of the community gets drunk.
They have no objection to a just license law
impartially administered, but they are ua
alternately opposed to the principle of pro
hibition. The German has a very clear
perception of his rights as a citizen, am) a
very firm purpose to resist al) attempts to
to invMdo them. The Germans of Illinois
havo learned that the Republican party
will not do to tie to always, Mr. Gauss to
the contrary potwjjstanding'
Says tho Pulaski Patriot: "Fifteen
Democrats and 6 Republicans go to congress
from Ohio this year. Tho temperance
platik in the Republican state platform did
the work, and did it well. The German
vote, it Is said, went solidly for 'personal
liberty.' Ohio U not ready for tA iiwuo.
It is well the Republican party Tound it
out before tho presidential campaign. "
Which moans that the Republican party
acknowledges that it drppud its mask too
soon, revc iled its real nature, its strong in
clination to abridge tho personal rights of
citizens whenever and wiierkveh it
DAHKU DO SO WITHOUT ENDANO ERINii ITS
ows existence, "a little too previously" in
Ohio, It will forthwith reassiiuio the mask
and parade before the public a little while
longer in the hypocritical garb of tho gu ir
diau of personal liberty. It will tako this
until anly method of deceiving the Ger
mans into supporting the party at the ner
presidential election, and then well, thauj
perhaps, it will daro renew tho attempts
made in the last federal congress by con
gressman Joyce (.Republican,) of Vermont,
to place a prohibitory amendment to tho
federal constitution. Bui will tho Germans
and the liberty loving citizens be deceived
by the mask, will they willingly and blind,
ly follow these dissembling Republican
politicians and place them in positions
where they may enry out their plans of or,
pression? In Ohio, the earnest opponents
of sumptuary legislation, assisted by an
army of intelligent Germans, have shouted
u deafening "no," and in Illinois wo havo
reason to hope tho same answer will be
echoed back with almost equal vigor.
Tho Republican mass meeting at tho
Tenth stand ' last night was not one
of which Republicans can bragg. It
was about as nearly a failure
as it could havo been without being an ab
solute failuro. Tho audience comprised not
over sixty persons, and fairly classified, there
were twenty-live negroes, and tho remainder
whites of whom fourteen weru Germans
by actual count. Of tho Germans six were
Democrats, and of tho other eight, two,
being interviewed, said they intented to
vole for Captain Murphy. Of the
whites who were not Germans,
about twenty in number, fully one-half,
wero Democrats. Tho speakers of tho oc
casion wero Hons. W. R. McCartney, of
Mstropolis, who is candidate fcr the stato
legislature from that district, and E. F. L.
Gauss, of Chicago. Mr. McCartney's speech
was short, but long enough to show his few
auditor that tho slump was thu last place
Jn the world he ought to show himself on.
His remarks wero general, not even gilt
teringly general and very brokeu. Ho was
so much at a loss for thoughts and for
words to express tho Tow that ho did have,
that tho intelligent portion of hi audi
ence felt very uncomfortable, md some of
tho colored people suggested that ho had
"better quit if ho couldn't make a
better speech den dat." Mr jjc.
Cartney llualiy concluded by
that ho only spoke to draw a crowd together
for Mr. Gauss to address, and thou sat
down to the groat relief of the audience.
Mr. Gauss, who was to speak in German,
began in English, aud as soon as ho opened
his mouth "ho put his foot into it" by
saying precisely these words: "I am sorry
to see so many who are not here, but
who ought to be here." He spoke for about
live minutes in English, repeating tho sen
tence obove quoted verbatim, to tho sup
pressed amusement of tho audience Then
ho broke off into Gorman and poke for
about half an hour, while his audience de
creased and amused itself by wondering
what in thundor ho was talking about. Mr.
Gauss' German speech was well delivered,
but no argument was presented that is
worthy of repetion or refutation. He
reviewed tho history of the
Republican party, dwelling at
length upon its war record and not touch
ing upon tho most important questions be
fore the people to-day, except Prohibition
and river improvement. Ho denied that
tho Republican party was identified in any
way with the Prohibition party, and as
scried that Captain Thomas, (who voted
"no" every time tho river and harbor bill,
came up, which Mr. Gauss neither denied
nor attempted to explain) was tho man
above all others to further tho river ini
provement interests of this districtiou.
There was no euthusiasm, not a sound of
applause, except that horrible screech occa-
casionally made by Crazy Jim Orango who
was Btaggenng drunk. Tho speaking,
which didn't begin until nearly half past
eight o'clock becauso thero was no audi
ence, censed about an hour afterwards.
Interesting services will held in nearly
all the churches to-day, and all should be
Although there has not yet been a
complete settlement of all accounts per
taining to the late Fourth of July celebra
tion, it is knOwn that, considering the
$350 of the expense, assumed by the city
council as the value of the benefits derived
by the city from the improvement in t do by
the committee in tho park, tho committee
is a little ahead. It is estimated that each
of the five companies and tho Mystic Krew
will receive about $15 as its share of
thc.'mt profits of the celebration. Besides
this, the tent will be still on hand, also
about ten dozen beer mugs. But this cal
culation allows nothing for tho work dmo
by the members ot tho - companies and
Krew, which estimated at a fair cash value
would foot up a considerable sum.
The steamboat scene in the third act
of the splendid drama of Foggs Ferry, to
be given to tho public at the Opera House
Monday evening by the Minnie Maddern
combination, said to be so thoroughly
real as to startle the beholder. A torpedo
is placed in tho river for the purpose of
destroying tlm steaml
'",lui,lly in of ,ie
steamboat, both being
audience. As the
stately craft, true to the life, comes boom
ing along down stream, make steam every
thing visible, Clip, personated by Miss
Maddern, suddenly appears upon the scene
with r ile on hand and taking aim, tires at
the terrible instrument of death, but
misses. By this time the audio ice is
breathless with suspense, and a death-like
stillness prevails. Again, little Clip slow
ly raises her rifle and, resting but for an
instant, fires again, a terrible explosion in
midriver, announcing the destruction of the
terpedo, and the safety of tho boat, which a
moment later pisses the spot in safety.
This bcene is worth the price of admission
alone, and is so thoroughly realistic as to
be absolutely starling.
In his speech last night Mr. GatiBS
emphatically denied that the Republican
party was conniving and b argaining with,
and pandering to, the Prohibition party.
Mr. GatisH must have thought his hearers
mentally blind or unreasoning ignoramuses.
Does not Ohio, Kansas, Maine, Iowa, etc.,
give tho lio to Mr. Gaust' words? Does
not tho Republican press give tho lio to
them? As a flat denial of Mr. Gauss' state
mi'iit nnd a sample of what appears every
wi'ek in nearly every Republican exchange
which appears upon The Bulletin's
table, read tho following from
the Vienna Times (Republican): "Tho
Republican party has pledged its support
to the Prohibition amendment, and every
Republican candidate in Johnson couuty
has been called out by tho temperance ad
vocates, and each candidate, with 0110 or
two exceptions nbovo Ids own name, has
declared himself In favor of this amend
ment. This ought to havo been sullicent
to have won the support and admiration of
tho temperance element, but notwitl stand
ing all thiH, they have made nominations
in opposition to tho Republican ticket, the
parly that can do them tho most good. Is
this fair, U it just and right? Don't these
temperance advocates know that tho Re
publican party H in power, andthat if such
unit ndnient is to bo submitted and tarried
before the people of this state, that it must
bedonobythe Republican party? Does
lliis temperance element really desire this
to be carried, or tloes simply wish to help
to defeat tho Republican party?

MURDER IN ST. LOUIS.
At a quarter after five o'clock Friday af
ternoon John A. Cockerill, managing editor
of tno Post-Dispatch, shot aud killed Col.
Alonzo W. Slaybock of the law firm of
Broadhcad, Slay back & Haeuslcr, the
scene of the homicide being the editorial
rooms in the second-storv of the
Post-Dispatch building on the north side
ot Market street, between Fifth and Sixth,
The cause of trouble was an article which
appeared in tho Post-Dispatch Friday after
noon, which was called forth by a speech
made by Col. Slayback at a political gath
ering tho day before, in which tho Post
Dispatch and its editor wero denounced.
After reading the assault on him in the
Post-Dispatch while in Mr. Clopton's office,
Col. Slayback became indignant and re
quested Mr. Clopbn to accompany him to
tho office. As Mr. Clopton had btihiness
with the publishing house next door, ho
assented. The two gentlemen entered tho
office, Slayback leading the way. Re said to
Mr. Clopton that an apology for tho injury
done him would not make amends he
would first slap tho writer's face and de
mand an apology afterwards. Ho did not
intend, however, to carry his hostilities In
yo ud tho blow of his hand.
Col. Slayback and his companion found
the door of the local room adjoining tho
editorial room on the east open, and hrotigh
this ho passed, followed by Mr. Clopton.
It was after business hours and tho re
porters engaged on tho paper had all left
the building. Mr. Henry M. Moore, the
city editor, who was tho only occupant of
tho room, was seated at his desk in tho far
Ho looked up as Cot. Slayback entered
and almost immediately turned to his desk
Thero was but tho distanco of a few feet
to pass between tho outer door and tho inner
entrance, and both gentlemen went into tho
Mr. Cockerill was at his desk. With
him in consultation wero Mr. John Mc
G tiffin, tho business manager, and Victor
Cole, tho foreman of thu composing room.
Col. Slayback as lie entered was
in two minutes of his death,
for tho sccno which followed, until ho
lay prono on tho floor shot through tho
heart, did not tako moro than that long in
As ho entered all three men looked up,
and Mr. Cockorill, who had tho immonso
advantago of being cool, faced him. At his
side on tho desk lay a pistol.
"You aro hero, aro you?" was tho cxcla
tiou which tho city editor heard in the ad
joining room. "Is that pistol for mo?" Ma
guffin reports Col. Slayback to have said as
ho pointed to tho weapon which lay on tho
editor's desk. -
"It is for you, if you camo tor it, "replied
Mr. Cockerill. Then followed the shooting,
almost immediately. Col. Slayback referred
to the editorial and drew a pistol.
Maguflin stepped quickly forward and
grasped tho weapon as ho raised it, his
hand being between tho hammer and the
cartridge, so that the hammer fell on the
flesh instead of tho percussion cap .of tho
Before Col. Slayback could discngago
himself, Mr. Cockerill walked forward to
ward them, raised tho weapon, which he
had grasped from the table, nnd fired at
close quarters. Tho well directed bullet
entered Col. Slayback's left side. "He stood
erect a moment; then advanced on Cockerill
and there was short struggle taken part in
by Col. Slayback, MaGulfin, Cockorill and
McGuffin wrenched tho pistol from Col.
Slay back's hand. As soon as lie gad gain
ed possession of it, Mr. Clopton who had
been struggling with Cockerill, endeavored
to tako the latter's revolver.
Before he could do it, even it he had
such an intention, or even if ho tried at all,
McGuffin placed a cocked revolver close to
his body and told him to drop his weapon.
Ho did drop it, and McGuffin afterwards
forced him to b: avo the room under tho
Col. Slsybsck's strength lasted only for a
moment. Then his wound told and ho
staggered. Mr. Clopton caught him in his
arma and eased him down on ti e floor,
where he died.
McGuffin retained possesion of Col. Slay,
back's weapon. At least tho fact that no
revolver could be found was so accounted
When Col. Slayback fell, Cockerill bent
over him and wiped away tho blood oozing
from his lips with his handkerchief. When
the crowd attracted by the shot commenced
to collect, he rosoaud let t the room ami tho
office in company with McGuffin, going in
a carriage to the telegraph office, it is said,
