Prolongation of his Practice in
To the Public :
t Wheti last Spring I selected New Haven as
my summer residence and commenced 'the
practice of my profession,' it was my inten
tion to remain only until October, but . the
constant increase . of patients from far and
near showed me the want which is jevidently
felt in thisjeommunity, ofa physician skilled
in the special branches to which my atten
tion is confined. Induced by these consider
ations and the wishes of many friends,I have
concluded to prolong my stay and to further
this object, have leased until the first of May,
the commodious residence
NO. 147 CHAPEL STREET,
(A Pew Doors Below Olive,)
Whero hereafter I may be found on Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of each
week. That my practice here has been at
tended with most gratifying results has been
sufficiently attested by many flattering testi
monials of cures from well known residents.
In- thanking the public for the confidence
which they so generously reposed in me and
for the many courtesies which I have received
at all hands, I can give the assurance that it
will be my endeavor in the future, as it has
been in the past, to discharge the duties of
my profession to the very best of my ability
and skill. Yours respectfully,
E. B. LIGHTHILL, M. D.
From Mr. J. II. Mehaffey,
aor Atwator Street.
New Haven, August 20, 1S80.
Permit me to add my testimony of Dr.
Iiighthill's skill and success to that of Mr.
Cox and others, as I have every reason to
speak in terms of the highest praise of his
successful efforts in my behalf. When a
month ago I applied to him for relief I was
a great sufferer. . A catarrh -which had af
flicted me for some time past, recently be
came so aggravated that it impaired my hear
ing and gave rise to such agonizing pain and
distress in my head that it nearly drove me
insane. In fact, such a result could scarcely
have been otherwise if Dr. Lighthill had not
afforded me such marvelously prompt relief.
One treatment proved the efficacy of his
method, for when I left his office I was in a
condition of comfort and experienced the
most inexpressible relief. That night I rest
ed comfortably, and in the morning felt like
a new man. Ever since then a steady im
provement has taken place in my case, the
most stubborn features yielding readily to
Dr. Lighthill's' skillful -management. The
pain has entirely disappeared, my hearing is
restored and a troublesome cough, which se
riously alarmed my friends, is almost entire
ly gone. My whole system, in fact, has been
so much benefited that all my acquaintances
notice the favorable change. Like many oth
ers, I had spent much money and time in
fruitless efforts to obtain relief before I ap
plied to Dr. Lighthill, and I can therefore
recommend the doctor with the' confidence of
a long experience. I am an employe of the
Boston and Air Line Bailroad Company, and
reside at 267 Atwater street, and will cheer
fully substantiate in person what I have here
put in writing. J. H. MEHAFFEY.
From Mr. T. M. Cox,
85 St. John Street. "
New Haven, July 9.
It gives me great pleasure to bear witness
to the remarkable skill of Dr. Lighthill and
the successful results of his treatment. For
the past thirty-six years I had been troubled
with a catarrhal complaint, which was very
annoying and often interfered with my swal
lowing and breathing. Of late years it at
tacked my hearing, impairing it to a consid
erable extent, and as it kept constantly in
creasing upon me it subjected me to serious
inconvenience. One of Dr. Lighthill's pa
rents, finding himself greatly benefited by
his treatment, advised me to place myself un
der his care, and happily I did so. Dr. Light
hill effectually removed the catarrhal com
plaint and all its attendant troubles, and re
stored my hearing to its former perfection
and acuteness. I know Dr. Lighthill's repu
tation is so well known that any recommen
dation on my part is scarcely necessary, but
I feel like discharging a duty to the afflicted
in New Haven and vicinity to make this pub
lic statement of my case, so that others may
be enabled to embrace this opportunity of
My happy experience of the results of Dr.
Lighthill's efforts has taught me to appreci
ate fully the value of specialties in medical
practice, and I feel assured that a few min
utes conversation with Dr. Lighthill will con
vince the most skeptical of the fact that he is
a master of his profession.
T. M. COX.
From tbe Rev. I). Clark,
Pastor Congregational Church, Kast Ha
It affords me great pleasure to add my tes
timony to that of others in favor of Dr.
Lighthill's success in the cure of catarrh.
His treatment of my wife has proved so ben
eficial that I cheerfully recommend him to
the confidence of the afflicted. The catarrh
in the case of my wife was of long standing
and in its worst form, against' which many
remedies had been tried in vain. The very
first treatment applied by Dr. Lighthill per
manently removed some of the most trouble
some features and the results ever since have
been of the most gratifying character. Our
people may congratulate themselves on hav
ing at their command the services of a phy
sician so skillful as Dr. Lighthill in the treat
ment of that troublesome disease, catarrh. -D.

parties are now divided, because tlie Republican
party is a national party i seeking the greatest
good for the greatest number of citizens.
There is not a precinct, in this vast Nation
where a Democrat cannot cast his ballot and
have it counted as east. JVo matter what the
prominence of the opposite party, he can pro
claim his political opinions, even if he
is only one among a thousand, with
out fear and without proscription on
account of his opinions. There are 14 States
and localities in some other States where Repub
licans have not this privilege. This, is one rea
son why I am a Republican. But I am a Re
publican for many other reasons. The Repub
lican party assures protection to uje ana prop
erty, the public credit, and the payment of the
debts of the government, State, coun ty or mu
nicipality, so far as it can control. The Dem
ocratic party does not promise Uiis; and if it
does, it has .broken its promises to
the extent of hundreds of millions,
as many northern Democrats can
testify to their sorrow. I am a Republican as
between the existing parties because the Repub
lican party fosters the productions of the field
and farm and of manufactories, and it en
courages the general education of the poor
as well as the rich. The Democratic party
discourages all these, when in absolute
power.- The. Republican party is a party of
progress and of liberality toward its opponents.
It encourages the poor to strive to better their
condition, the ignorant to educate their children,
to enable them to compete successfully with
their more fortunate associates, and, in
fine, it secures an entire equality before the law
of every citizen, no matter wnai us race, na
tionality or previous condition. It tolerates no
privileged class. Every one has Vie opportuni
ty to make himself all he is capable of.
POLICY AfcD DUTY.
. In an article with the above heading a
writer in the Providence Journal says some
things which- ought to be brought to the at
tention of every voter, and which deserve
careful consideration by every voter. :-.There
are two ways, he points out, by which it is
proposed to break up the sectionalism of the
solid South, which is such an injury to itself
and such a menace to the political progress
of the country. The one to give it its own
way, allow it to control the government of
the country and satiaate its am
bition for power and plunder, trusting that it
will quarrel over the spoils and divide when
it has no longer the necessity of success to
keep it in cohesion. It was the argument used
to some extent in the early days of secession,
before the country was fairly roused by the
firing upon Sumter, that it was better to let
the southern States go rather than undergo
the cost in blood and money of a war, for it
was highly probable that they would event
ually return one by one, under the influence
of self-interest, and attracted by the greater
prosperity of the North. This was not ac
cepted as a wise policy at that time, and it
was recognized that there were other things
that went to make up the political action of
communities rather than pecuniary interest,
and that pride, passion and prejudice would
have their influence in maintaining the solid
arity of the Confederacy. The other course
is that indicated by Gen. Grant in his speech
at Warren, Ohio, and that is, to break up the
solid South by the continued defeat of the
Democratic party. This is akin to the meth
od taken when the solid South was called the
Confederacy and attempted to accomplish its
purpose in arms, as it does now by destroy
ing the right of citizenship within its borders.
The action of the nation then was in recogni
tion of the faot that submission to treason
was not the way to destroy it, and that per
mitting the country to be rent ' asunder for
the gratification of selfish ambition was not
the way to reunite it.
It is not too much to say, as the writer
does, that no system of government that
permits or tolerates the crimes against the
ballot that are committed in the South is fit
to call itself republican or can have any con
fidence in its continued existence. The
question is more than a question of policy.
It is a question of duty. "The line must be
drawn and the declaration made that it is an
injustice and a wrong, and that there can be
no end to the irrepressible conflict until it is
righted, as decidedly and strongly as in the
case of slavery." We earnestly commend
the following "section of truth," which closes
the article in the Journal to the minds and
consciences of our readers :
- If the Bepublican party had been defeated
in the election of 18G0, slavery would have
been strengthened, and it would have con
tinued to grow and increase and solidify it
self so long as the party it ruled remained in
power. It is the same way with the condi
tion of political oppression that exists in the
South to-day. It will have every temptation
to be continued from pride, ambition and po-
litical selfishness, and the same causes which
have created it will perpetuate it. To think
otherwise is to believe that prejudice.shrewd-1
ness and self-interest will lose their force
simply because they are successful, and that
the intelligent leaders of the South will de
stroy the source of their own power because
they are unable to agree upon a division of
the spoils. The question cannot be ignored
any more than slavery could be ignored. The
nation cannot be silent and indifferent con
cerning it any .more than a patient can be
silent and indifferent nnder a disease.
The South will always find- itself
"provoked,?' as it complained that it was
provoked by the protests against slavery, and
no agreement can possibly bide the question
of whether an American citizen shall or shall
not have the privilege of casting his ballot
as he pleases and of having it counted as he
cast it ? The declaration must be made as to
what is the opinion and the purpose of the
nation in this matter. The prow of the ship
must be pointed toward the open sea and not
be suffered to drift upon the lee shore. The
party must be sustained that recognizes the
evil and the danger, and not the one that
would ignore it, even if the exact method of
cure is not yet apparent, and neither violent
nor precipitate action is intended. It is bet
ter that there should be influence and en
deavor toward the right than submission and
encouragement to wrong. And this as policy
as well as principle, wisdom as well as duty.
Bemember on election day that every vote
cast for Garfield and Arthur is a protest
against the solid South and the crimes com
mitted to keep it so. Already there are
signs that the break-up will begin in earnest
with the defeat of the Democratic party this
fall. No greater blessing could come to the
country or to the South itself. Vote right
on this important issue.
What is so rare as a day in October ?
Almost everybody expects Indiana to give

usually does, and Ohio to go Bepublican, as

The New York Democrats will to-day pay
the efficient Supervisor of Elections, John L
Davenport, the compliment of petitioning for
his removal from the office which he has so
administered as to become a terror to those
who would carry elections by fraud. It is
not expected that tho petition will be suc
cessful. In the opening of bids at the treasury in
Washington a day or two ago a fact was dis
closed which shows very clearly why tha De
Pauws and other Democratic manufacturers
have announced their intention of voting the
Bepublican ticket. The bids were for fur
nishing plate-glass to the United States
court-house at Austin, Texas. There were
five bidders for American glass, the lowest
being that of De Pauw of Indiana, for the
sum of $ 1,598. Notwithstanding the high
duties on glass, however, one of the foreign
bidders named a lower figure, namely, $1,593,
or, with duties remitted, $1,062. Anybody
can easily see from these bids that if the
free-trade plank of the Democratic platform
should be enforced, and even a slight reduc
tion in the tariff on plate-glass be made, no
more glass could be manufactured in this
The report of General Walker concerning
the census in South Carolina is published.
He believes that the census of 1870 in that
State was incorrect, owing mainly to the de
fects of the law under which it was taken.
Concerning the census of 1880 he says, at
the end of his report : "I know of no reason,
therefore, why any further charge should be
made against the enumeration recently
brought to a conclusion by the commissioner
and sworn oflicers of the government in
South Carolina. The presumption which
existed against their work has been com
pletely overthrown and a strong counter
presumption has been created by the verifi
cation upon the ground of the schedules of
inhabitants in the case of eighteen enumer
ation districts successively taken for special
investigation on account of their exception
ally questionable character. " This seems to
settle it. Our congratulations to South Car
olina. The following are some of the reasons
which are influencing independent, conserva.
tive men, to support the Bepublican ticket.
They are from the Springfield Republican :
"General Hancock is a good man, but Gener
al Garfield is a good administration. That is
the difference between the parties and the
candidates, and it is a big difference. The
Bepublican party under Hayes is administer
ing the government with a degree of efficien
cy, integrity and wisdom which conspires
with other elements of thrift to make us
prosperous and happy. General Garfield as
President simply takes the place of Hayes in
controlling and improving this vast adminis
trative machine. If Hancock could fit in
with as little jar and disturbance as Garfield
would, there would be little to distinguish
the candidates, except Garfield's civil experi
ence. - But Hancock cannot or at least "will
not fit into the administrative machine ; he
goes into the presidency to turn out the ex
isting civil service and appoint new, untried
and unselected men in their places, and, on
the mathematical law of probabilities, he
will make a mistake at least one time in ten.
Garfield in four years would have to pick out
for office but a few thousand men and mostly
by promotion ; Hancock will attempt at once
to pick out 100,000, with nothing to promote
from. His 10,000 inevitable mistakes scat
tered over the country will make his admin
istration a hurricane of scandal."
The following curious composition was re
cently placed upon the blackboard at a teach
ers' institute in Vermont and a prize of a
Webster's dictionary offered to any person
who could read it and pronounce it correctly.
The book was not carried off, however, as
twelve was the lowest number of mistakes in
pronunciation made : "A sacrilegious son of
Belial, who suffered from .bronchitis, having
exhausted his finances, in order to make good
the deficit, resolved to ally himself to a come
ly, lenient and docile young lady of the Malay
or Caucasian race. ' He accordingly pur
chased a calliope and ' coral necklace of a
chameloon hue, and securing a suit of rooms
at a principal hotel, he engaged the head
waiter as his coadjutor. He then dispatched
a letter of the most unexceptional caligraphy
extant, inviting the young lady to a matinee.
She revolted at the idea, refused to consider
herself sacrificable to his desires, and sent a
polite note of refusal, on receiving which he
procured a carbine and a bowie knife, said
that he would not now forge fetters hymeneal
with the queen, went to an isolated spot, sev
ered his jugular vein and discharged the con
tents of his1 carbine into his abdomen. The
debris were removed by the coroner. " The
mistakes in pronunciation were made on the
following words : Sacrilegious, Belial, bron
chitis, exhausted, finances, deficit, comely,
lenient, docile, Malay, calliope, chameleon,
suit, coadjutor, caligraphy, matinee, sacrifi
cable, carbine, hymeneal, isolated, jugular
