PAUL Q. SCHUII.
Dear tint : Recognizing, the fact lliit
there is to a certain exteut, a mutual depen
dency existing between the professions of
pharmacy unit inudiciue, aud feeling that a
better understanding of the function and
duties of the two profession should ho re
cognized ami adhered to, wo, of the medi
cal profession of Cako, object to the fre
quent habit of druggists ot thia city, of
diagnosing diseases and prescribing medi
cines, for the following reasons:
First. The science of pharmacy does
not include a knowledge of tho science of
Second.. You are violating the medical
practice act, by so doiug, and robbiug the
physicians of their legitimate business.
Third. You are practising deception
upon the sick; therefore we ask you to ad
here to the law governing the practice of
Another grievance to which wo respect!
fully ask your uttention, is tho matter of
refilling prescriptions without authority ot
the physicians who have writen them. The
abovo practice is injurious to both patient
Bud physicians; the patient often sullenng
from the effects of improper modicine, and
the physician because ho is practically
held responsible for the action of the medi
cine he did not prescribe. '
Again we hold that tho original owner
of the prescription loses his ownership in
the same, ns soon as it is once filled and
placed on lile, and that he has no right to
demand that it be taken from tho tile and
be refilled, except by the order of the pre
scribing physicians. Wo therefore ask
you to discontinue the practice.
After due deliberation, wo the under
signed members of the "Medical Associa
tion of Cairo" have resolved not to patron
i.e directly or indirectly, any druggist,
who shall after this date, be known to pre
scribe for any one requiring tho services of
a physician, or who shall refill or duplicate
prescriptions without the written or verbal
authority of the physician. Respectfully,

To Hi Public :
Although the above resolutions speak for
themselves, and although any unprejudiced
person can readily read between the lines
the real motives prompting the Cairo Med
ical Association to iusuo such a proclama
tion, I feel like making a few remarks: -
I, for my part, do riot know that I have
been deceiving the public during the last
19 years past nnd do not intend to deceive
it now, on tho contary, I will try, in the
futuro, as I have in tlio past, to mind my
own tmsiuess and attend to tho wants of
my patrons to the best of my ability. I

A letter received by Chief Myers yes
terday, from Marshal Joseph Thrailkill, of
Dulton, On., makes inquiry if thero did
not occur a political row in this city some
two, three or four years ago, in which
"some killing was done;" nnd if thero is
any reward offered for tho murderer. No
such row occurred in this city nt nny time,
so far ns we could find out. It is likely
that Boine druukeii braggart sought to

reciting some horrible tales, in which he

fierce dog that was tiod in tho back yard,
by cutting his throat, jind they threw the
curcas uuder a bench, tyiero he could not
bo seen when Mr. Prouty went about 1)
o'clock to unfasten him for the night.
They then raised a rear window, entered
tho saloon, opened a side door leading into
an alley-way and rolled the iron 6afe,
weighing Bbout seven hundred pounds,
out. It seems that they left tho window
through which they entered open, nnd
while they were engaged with the safe, it
fell down, awakening Mrs, Prouty, who in

was quiet again the latter went to sleep
again. About half an hour afterwards

LETT EH FKOM HoN.fl. A. KOEIIN Ell AND HON.
Belleville, 111., Oct. I), 1882.
Dear Sin I nm in receipt r,f your letter
relative to the election of a member of
congress foi the 20th Illinois district, aud
tako no exceptions to recommend the Hon.
W. K. Murphy to German voters of that
district. In the questions, which in my es
timation, aro of tho greatest import, i. o.,
the question of personal liberty, and con
sequent to tho attacks on this, from the
knownothingism, which ns yet lies hidden
but which will elevate its head opon and
fearlessly in tho event of the victory of the
Prohibitionists I thiuk tho Democratic
party is the only ono, which according to
its past history ns well as by its present
tendencies in this campaign, deserves ..tho
support of every liberal man.
Mr. Murphy, with whom I am personally
acquainted for a number of years, is him
self a man who -never wavered in his fight
against fanaticism, I know that he is
sound on tho above question, mid that he
may bo relied upon. I also And him to be
a man who is eminently capable to repre
sent your district honorably and worthily,
and deem it the duty of every liberty-loving
German voter, to support his candidacy.
As Mr. Perrin of this place served in
tho legislature cotemporary with Mr.
Murphy, I will ropiest him to express his
opinion on Mr. Murphy. Respectfully,
O. A. KoEHNElt.
To John Schneider, E., and other.
LETTEll KIIOM Mil. I'EHIUN.
I take this opportunity to endotse the
opinion of Mr. Koenier fully. As I sat
together with Mr. Murphy in tho legisla
ture, I can truthfully say that nobody
ranked higher in my estimation than Mr.
Murphy; becau c he was dauntless iu tho
first ranks of tho opposition to fanaticism,
prohibition and compulsory laws.
Ho rendered good service in the fight
and defeat of tho "Hinds Bill" nnd the
proposed change in the constitution inf ivor
of Prohibition, which is greatly duo to his
untiring efforts nnd energy. As this is tho
main question of this camp.'iign, I am of
the opinion that every liberty-hniog citi
z;u should support such a man.
IMPORTANT TO DEMOCRATS.
THKYSHOri.D DIVIDE TH El H VOTES Eijl' AL
LY BETWEEN THE TWO DEMOCRATIC CAN
DIDATES Foil THE l.Koisi.ATCUE.
Every Democratic voters and others who
will act with them, should giv each
of the Democratic candidates
for tho lower house of tho
state legiUlute, from this senabuial dis
trict, one and a half votes. If any "plump
ing" is done, one or the other of them may
be feated and that would lessen the
chances f which are now reasonably) sure of
)I)emocratic general assem bly.
Iu tho State there are 17 Sjnttorial Dis
tricts in which the Republicans hve two
candidates for rcpresm dive, and th. Dem
ocrats one. All of these will by elected,
It is reason ibly certain.
There aie 10 District in which the Dem
ocrats have two candidates, and the Re
publicans ouo, all of which will bo
elected . L
There aro 18 Districts in which both par
ties will run two, and each side will cer
tainly elect one, leaving the third in doubt.
Thero will thus be assured 08 Re
publican and 07 Demerits. A majority
of 1 in tho Imus'j is 77. Therefore to give
ilia majority we will liavj to get 10, or
tho Republicans will hive to get U of
tho 18 doubtful -i I nvunbers.
If tho Democrats will net wisely there
is no doubt whatever but that they
will have a good woiking majority in the
to "plumping," defeat is certain. The elec
tion of 1880 furnished an example of the
disastrous results of "plumbing." In that
election the Democrats of six districts
elected only one member in each, bec.tuse
they concentrated their votes upon ouo
candidate, when, by dividing their votes
equally between two, they could have elec
ted both. This was tho case in the First,
Twentieth, Twenty fourth, Forty-ninth,
Forty-fourth aud Tenth districts, all being
Democratic by majorities ranging from 17
to 550, but which, by Democratic "plump
ing," allowed the Republicans lo elect two
members to the legislature to the Demo
crats' one. Had the Democrats acted wise
ly aid divided their votes equally between
their two candidates, they would have
elected six more Deinocutic members than
they did, the U2 I general as-etnbly would
havo been Democratic by a
majority of one, ilMd the late
disgraceful gerrymander could have
l;:en prevented. Theiefore, wo ask the
Democrats of this and also of tho Fifty. first
district to act wisely, to not thoughtlessly
throw away a goo 1 i h nice to in ike the
o.'Jd general assembly strongly Democratic.
CAPTAIN THOMAS VS. TIIK FARMER
While the circular published clsewhoro
in this issue, Is n very full indictment of
Captain Thomas, there aro several other
counts touching his votes as representative
of the people, which it is proper to add
now. Tho Republican press ol tho dis
trict, such portions of it as is in sympathy
with the captain, has sought t) nrousu tho
farmers nnd laboring men again.it Captain
Murphy on the ground that ho has, by
ability, energy, good judgment nnd honesty,
been so far successful in the maiiageiuout
of his own private affairs as to have ac
quired reasonably largo btisinims interests.
This should, if anything, raise Captaiu
Murphy in tho estimation and confidence
of all voters who, like he did, are starting
at tho bottom of the ladder, nnd who de
sire an able representative In congress; and
it should satisfy them that, havin),, suc
ceeded in small things, where his opponent
dishonorably failed, ho will ho also suc
cessful in larger things, in which his op
ponent has also signally failed. But tho
portion of the Republican press referred to
Is trying hard to make tho honest tillers of
the soil and laborers believe that a man
who has a comfortable compcteuce, even
though ho acquired it by years of his own
honest toil, is, therefore and thereby, dis
qualified to represent tho farmers and la
borers of whom ho was ono and among
whom hn labored; that ho is necessarily
prejudiced against them,, and will, if elec
ted to represent them, use his infiuenco
against their iutcresla. Captain Thomas,
they claim, being a poor man himself
poor because of tho bad management of his
owu affairs and his dishonest practices to
ward his poor clients, which lo.it him tho
confidence and the patronage of all, (for
which wo can produce affidavits) he, they
claim, can bettor sympathize with tho poor
and will uso his irilhient.es in their behalf.
His past actions nm the only criterion by
which wo can judgo what his
future ones will be, aud saying
nothing of his hhumeful abuso of confi
dence in his dealings with his poor constit
uents at home, we will refer to just two of
a largo uuiuber of votes cast by him in the
federal house, which prove him to bo
diametrically opposed to tho best interests
of tho farmer and the laborer.
Iu the early part of August a bill was in
troduced by a Democrat, providing for tho
removal of tho tariff on knit goods ot all
descriptions. Tho tariff on ibis classof
goods is 57 ce.its on tho dollar, and the la
borer is compelled to pay ouo dollar for
every -IU cents worth ot such goods ho
buys. The bill was advocated with all the
matchless ability ol tho Democratic side of
the house, and it was solidly opposed by
the Republican side. Mr. Thomas, how
ever, was gilent, us is his habit. (Tho only
speech he ever made in the house was iu
February 1880, when he declared himself
opposed uiicb auginbly to river improve
uieut, und in favor of "hurling Democrats
over battlements" aud things.) But when
tho bill was put to a vote it was lost by al
most a strict party vote, Captain Thomas
voting against a bill which would havo en
abled the laborer to purchase an important
part of his winter apparel for less than one
half he must pay for it now.
On the 5th of June 1882, Hon. Otcar
Turner offered a bill providing for tho re
moval of the tariff on trace chnin, one of
the arlicles very much used by every farmer
iu this broad laud, and upon which thero
is a duty of 58 per cent., which enables
thtt manufacturer to compel the larincr to
pay him an even dollar for ewry 42 cents
worth of chains he buys. The amendment
was voted upon while, accidentally no
doubt, Captain Thomas ww present, and it
received 73 yeas acd 10U nays, the Cap
tain's name appearing among the latter, as
