CONCLl'SIOM MA 1 BK ARRIVED AT.
PAIL G. SCHL'U,
Deir Stu: Recognizing the fact that
there is to certain estetit, a mutual depen
dency existing between the professions of
pharmacy aud medicine, and feeling that a
better underetaudiug nf the fuurtin and
duties of the two profession should be re
cognized and adhered to, wo, of the medi
cal profej.-ion of Cairo, object to the fre
quent habit of druggists oi thia city, of
diagnosing diseases and prescribing medi
cine, for the following reasons:
First. The science of pharmacy dues
not include a knowledge of the science of
Second. You are violating the medical
practice act, by so doing, and lobbing the
physicitns of their legetimate business.
Third. You are practising deceptiou
upon the tick; therefore we ask you to ad
here to the law governing the practice of
Another grievance to which we respect
fully ask your attention, is the matter of
refilling prescriptions without authority ot
the physicians who have writen theiu. The
above practice is injurious to both patient
aud physicians; the patient often Buttering
from the effects of improper medicine, and
the physician because he is practically
held responsible for the action of the medi.
cine he did not prescribe.
Again we hold that the original owner
of the prescription loses his ownership in
the same, as soon as it is once filled and
placed on file, and that he has no rit'ht to
demand that it be tak"ii from the file and
bo refilled, except by the order of the pre.
scribing physicians. We therefore ask
you to discontinue the practice.
After due deliberation, we the under
signed members of the "Medical Associa
tion of Cairo" have resolved not to patron
ize directly or indirectly, any druggist,
who shall after this da'e, be known to pro
scribe for any one requiring thu services of
a physician, or who shall refill or duplicate
prescriptions without the written or verbal
authority of the physician. Respectfully,

To the Public:
Although the alxive resolutions spk for
themselves, and although any unprejudiced
person cau readily read between the lines
the real motives prompting the Cairo Med
ical Association to issue such a proclama
tion, I feel like making a few remark-:
I, for my part, do not know that I have
been deceiving the public during the la,t
19 years past and do cot intend to deceive
it now, on the con t try, I will try, in the
futuro, as I have in tue past, to mind my
own business and a'tetid to the wants of
Djy patrons to the best of my ability. I
am neither beogino nor bcyiso any one's
patronage, but my aim is to please -arh
and every one, who kindly fivers me with
their calls. Respectfully,

ly of repre-ientatives of that deiioininutiori,
ever held in the slate, aud its pioceeditiga
have been of more than ordinary inltreit
and importance, This circuinstam ii grew,
in part at least, out oi the fact that thu state
had previously been divided into thieij
Synods, and this wus th') (hit HCi-sion after
tho consolidation by the Presbyterian Gen
eral Assembly at I to salon in Springfield
iu May lust, Among tho questions which
came before the Synod for settlement, was
that of thing the ratio of ic presentation in
future Synods, which elicited considerable
discission, and was finally settled by llxing
tho ratio at one minister and oua elder lor
every eight ministers and icsiduul fraction
of that Lumber. There are smue tight liitu-
dri'd ministers in the state, and it is csti
inai'id that this basis will give a represen

Rev. lb. Patterson, of Chicago, presided
during the sessions with great acccptibility.

Mr. Scott Singleton, of tho Pulaski

them htivimjbeon dratted into the fovorn

pelled t bloor: una Imired a.nl to waste
their sweetnesj upon the desert air. How
cru-d! That the government is partial to
the young men of any particular city, in
the distribution of its otHcul 1 avors, is not
pleasaut to couteiiiplate by the young men
of other cities, but that it should carry this
partiality to the extent of depopulating such
of youug men, is too much, it is intolhra
tile, and we for one join the young ladies
of M mad City in a demand lor the imme
diate raeaie of a sufficient number of the

It is difficult to see upon what the
few Repudlicans w ho are being led by State
Attorney I);imron to agitate tho question
of party action in tho coming county
election lose their hopes of success. At the
election of 1 STS thelat "ofl year" election
according to the vote cast for tho Repub
lican candidate for statu treasurer, tha
Republican vote of this county lell 19
short of a iiujsrity. Then there were uo
Prohibition or Greenback c indi la'.cs for
county offices, and hid there been a parti
san fight for the county offices the Repub
lican candidates must have Keen deflated
Siuce then the vote of both of the major
parties in tue county have increased iu
numbers. The Republican party, thanks
to the t-ffirts of that hnpoUer of s-oiithern
Republican pauper oterx, Gladden, liai
probably increased more thin 'he. Demo
cratic parly has; but by f-ir not enough
more to insure mi -ci v- in a partisan fight
under existing liirumstunces. There is now
a Prohibition tieket in. the field w hich, it is
commonly admitted, will dr t.v more upon
the' Republican than upon the Oemocratic
party. B;.-ides this the peoph of the conn
tv, Republicans as well as Democrat', do
uot want a partisan county campaign. The
more intelligent of them whi are not seek
ers after the t-polls, are opposed from princi
pal to federal party action in local i lections,
and will not lie governed by the lictateu of
a few men whose only motive is an intense
hankering after office. Th" peopl .- n the
county amply hhywod thin by the over
whelming defeat of almo ,t the entile Re
publican county tick.t, rtt the I it county
election, and Go I know.), th y luve ha I
ample reason to finely r-gret its success
even to the extent of uiily one candidate
who is now a? tho head of this new move
ment. Last presidential election the R"
publican party of the county showed a ma
jority of only and then partisan iXv'e
ment was at a white beat so to speak I bis
little ISO will be absorbed by the pMhibi-
bitionists alone, and the great majority of
the more intelligent Republican voteu, both
black and white will do the rest ot the
Work. It would seem tint this state of
facts precludes ven the po-sibiiity of hic
cess of Republican party action in tho
Coming campaign. We are aware that the
most powerful Republican argument, aenr-
ruptiou fund, is to be ' used in the cam
paign. We aware that the apparent apathy
of the colored voters of tl i couuiy is open
ly at tri Luted by Republican politicians them
selves, to the la-k of money in the hands
of the more unscrupulous leaders, arid we
known from an admi.-cion made by one of
the most ardent supporters of this move
ment hit Sunday while in a state
of semi-sob im s that money is t be
"brought into the county"' for the purpose
of carrying the Republican ticket through.
But we do not hoiicve that there is a suf
ficient number of Republican vuteis in
this county, of either color, who, being op
posed to party action, could be influenced
by even so potent au argument as money.
We have more fai'h iu the honesty of the
averaga Republican voter than the leading
Republican politicians liave, and we have
less faith in the efficacy of corruption
funds generally, even though strong Re
publican te-timony to the contrary stares
us in th face.
The protectionists of our ow n day say
that a protective tan If is necessary because
wages are lii.;her in this country than in
Eunpc. Thu:; the protectionists themselves
admit that protection neutralizes the effect
of high wagee, ami it can only do that by
making wages lower, either by reducing
tLe iiinouut paid tin: laborer or reducing its
pun basing power, which is exactly the same
to the laborer. Wagon are higher in this
country than iu Europe; but wages are not
higher because of protective tariff, but be
cause labor is more productive here thaniu
Europe. The competition in the labor
market is not us great, owing to our sparse
population and the abuwliaco of cheap
land. The ev il Ifects of protection in this
couutiy are counteracted in it uii ai-uro by
free trade amoug the states. That the tariff
is uot the cause of high wages is proven by
the fact that iu Isj IK 50 wages in California
weie ten times as high its in Massachu
setts. The tarilf was thu mime iu both
atales yet wages of common laborers
were $1 per day in Massac husetts and 10
per day in California. What was the
cause of this immense difference of wages
iu the t wo states? Labor was more pro
ductive in California than in Massachusetts.
It a man could washout if 10 worth of gold
in a day ho would not work for less, and
wages roso because labor wns exceptionally
productive, aud wages were lower in Massa
chusetts because labor was less productive.
If protection makes wages, high, wages
should bo lower in Engtand than in any
other country iu Europe-, as England is a
frco trade country. Now what are the
factB? Wages iu Germany, Italy, Spain,
Russia, aro miserably low, and the wages
ot t lie English workiogmen average double
the wagon received by the woikingmen in
theso countries. Since England adopted
free trade, wages there have risen more
than one-half and their hours of labor have
been shortened to 58 hours per week. The
English workiugmcu are butter paid, better
fed, better clothed and better educated,
since the adoption of free trade than ever
before. Captain Thomas is in favor of a
high protective turiff. Captain Murphy is
in favor of a tarilf for reveuuo only. Who
