The Illinois Staats Zoitung complains
because no German American wa9 put on as
delegate to the national convention by the
Republicaus at Peoria. Tho Staats Ziitung
says the German Americans were ignored
in this way because to the republicans in
the convention the qu;stion of personal lib
erty appeared so dungerous a subject that
it not even dared to make empty words
about it." The workinjmen of tha State
cannot find this fault with the convention.
It devoted two whole empty planks to them
as full of empty words as an egg is of meat.
Here is an item of much intere st to the
tobacco dealers of this internal revenue dis
trict: Last evening Gen. W. C. Pavey,
collector for this district, mailed to the
proper officer at Washington, drafts amount
ing to $10, 227.90, to meet claims of tobac
co dealers in this district, on account of the
rebite authorized by the previous Congress.
It should be borne in .mind, however, that
these drafts will be only for claims filed on
1st of May, 1883. Claims which had not
been presented on that date, or which had
to be returned for correction, will not be
paid for several weeks yet.

board of directors consists of Messrs.Andrew
Lohr, Calvin NetT, Chas. Gilhofer, Jeff M.
Clark and J. H. Rittenhouse. After the
regulation ceremony at the hall nearly the
whole gallant company repaired to Charley
Bower's restaurant where tho occasion was
celebrated by indulgences that made all
feel exceedingly good, the chief part of
which was a feast of considerable elegence
--Three negro girls were riding in a ca
noe, in the upper end of Lake Edwards, in
this county, Sunday atttrnoon, when one of
them, observing that her dress was drag
ging in tho water, made a sudden move
ment to one side, causing the canoe to
turn over, and all the occupants to be
thrown into the water, which at that point
was probably eight feet deep. One of the
girls caught onto the overturned canoe and
held herself up until help came, but tho
other two went down and were drowned.
The bodies were soon after found and tak
en to the homes of their parents. The
drowned girls were sixteen and eighteen
years of age respectively.
A meeting of colored votcas was held
down town Friday night, for the purpose of
taking some action concerning the maner in
which the Peoria convention treated the
colored clement in the State. A committee
of five was appointed one from each
ward with instructions to dratt resolutions
expressing displeasure at the contemptuous
disregard ot the olored voters by the
whito Republicans at Peorie, in that not a
calored man rom Southern Illiuoia was
honored with aappointment to a position of
any kind in the party councils. The com
mittee is torcport at a future moeting. If
one may judgo from the past Uistory of the
Republican party, it is entirely safe to con
clude that the action of the Cairo African
Republicans, or any similar action by Af
rican Republicans elsewhere in the State,
will have about as much effect on the Re
publican party as tho breath of a gnat
would have upon a conflagration. African
Republicans in various patts of tho country
have passed such resolutions before. They
have done more; they hive organiz-d com
pactly; have nominated their own candi
dates in elections, aud then broken up in a
jealous squabble and defeated their own
moo. It-solutions by African Republicans
denouncing Caucasian Republicans for
shamefully nialtreatiug those upon whom
they rely for success at tho polls, do not
arouso the fear nor command the respect of
thoje against whom they are directed nor
of any one else, for that matter. "A bark
ing dog," they say, "doesn't bite," but
neither dots a"resoluting " faction, if that
faction is satialled with simply "rjsoluti ig''
against the repotted slights to which they
are subjected by their whito masters, as the
colored voters have for , these several
years I Perhaps the Cairo mal-coutents
will meet again to receive the resolutions
of protest, and perhaps not. Pcrhap tho
protest will be adopted and perhaps not.
But this much is certain : tho' these resolu
tions be ignored as much as were those in
whose behalf they were made, when elect
ion day comes around, tho resolutora them
selves will march up U the polls and meekly
drop their ballots into the boxes in accord
ance with the dictates of tho party machine.
The reasons why such resolutions of diwat
isfateion by colored voters have uo effect
and are held in contempt, is that they aie
not backed up by bullots expressing the
same sentiments. In a political campaign
ballots are the only things that no for any
thing with a party, aud so long as the Af
rican Republican hiruseif strangles his
resolutions at the ballot box, his resolu
tions will excite only well merited derision.
If the negroes would they could command
the respect of their party; th'y have the
numerialc strength to dicttte tenn, but
they haven't that strength which lies
alone in unity and consistency and hence it
is that their appeals are unheeded and
their demands excite only such ridicule.
The negro, Charlcts Davis, who stole
twenty-two hundred dollars from a Gypsy at
Metropolis, was brought to this city from
St. Louis Sunday about noon, and conveyed
to the county jtil for safe keeping until
yesterday morning, wheu he was taken to
Metropolis by the officers iu charge. Ho
was hand-cuffed as he was mirched through
the streets and attracted considerable at
tention. Ho was met heie by several of
his relatives, who accompanied him back to
the scene of his crime. A reward of f 100
had been offered for his capture, which the
St. Louis officers got. Only )75 was received
from him in money all gold; besides this
a gold watch and chain, a set of fine studs,
scarf pin, cuff buttons, etc., were taken fr'm
him, which he had bought with part of the
money. Tin balance of the money he
doubtless squandered in various way?, dis
sipation of every kind. It appears that in
St. Louis he enacted the samo foolish role
he did here, spending his gold lavislhy and
conspicuously in frivolities of every kind,
in which manner he furnished the bestclua
possible to the officers.
