Abundant past experience has shown that whenever the present '-responsible editor" ot the Ottawa Republican gets off a whop ping big mistatoment or facts or presents aa untenable argument, no matter how fal lacious or ridiculous, he sticks to both to the last, and no facts, figures, reasoning or mathematical demonstration can move him a hairbreadth. So of courso no undertak ing can be more dreary and hopeless than to extort from him an admission that he is clearly and inexcusably in error in his statement that the "temperance" resolution of the late democratic state conrention is "a pronuucinnicnto (meaning in English a declaration) against the right of tho people to vote) upon a prohibitory amendment." How so ? Why, says the astute "respon sible" editor, tho resolution declares the present liquor laws of Illinois just and suf ficient; or if not, in favor of their amendment, so that a prohibitory consti tutional amendment is unnecesary; and therefore, cries this sharp logician, the reso lution "pronounces" against the right oi the people to vote on a prohibitory amend ment I This is equal to the non-sequitur of the school boys : "John's cow is red ; red Cows are good milkers; therefore John's cow would make good beef." The resolution ot the democratic convention endorses the present liquor law of the state; or if in sufficient, it favors making it stronger; therefore it opposes the right of the people to vote on prohibition 1 Now the simple truth ib, that the resolution says not one word about submitting a prohibitory amemdment pro or con. leaving demo crats on that question to think and vote as they please; but when such an amendment is once submitted, the democrats by their resolution say spenly, candidly ami man fully, "we shall vote against it" That is the democratic position. . But while our astute "responsible editor" at Ottawa, in unision with a large portion ot the republican press of the state, is falsely howling about the opposition of the demo, crats to letting the people vote on a prohi bitory amendment, when, where and how did the republican party of Illinois ever declare, as the Chicago Journal alleges, and all the little bucolic organs chime in, that "the republican party of Illinois is in favor of the submission of an amend ment to the constitution of Illinois prohi biting the manufacture and sale of intoxi cating liquors as a beverage, so that the legal voters of the state may have an op portunity of settling the question oi pro hibition according to the wishes of the majority ?" Was it at the last republican state convention, when delegate Hart, of this county, offered a resolution in these very terms and it was howled and choked down T Or was it at any other convention of the party, this year, last year, three or ten years ago? The truth is, and we defy our local "responsible editor" and all the other republican squealers and dodgers in the state to deny it, the party as such has uniformity, cowardly and pusillanimously dodo ed the whole question. BOKUATEO I How trifling a cause it takes to change the whole current of events! At the repub lican district convention In Ottawa on Wednesday William Cullen was re-nominated for Congress by acclamation. Yet a change of a dozen of votes at the Ottawa caucus on Saturday, "a little less cheating by the "Cullonites," as bis enemies say, would have reversed the whole business. The loss of the Ottawa delegation by Mayo lost him the "county and gave it to Cullen, and having carried his own county, Cullen got the nomination, which other wise would have been out of the question. B'etsed be the Inventor of accidents I However, again on the track, 31 r. Cullen is probably as good timber as the party fcad at its command. As matters stand in tbt district, the ctnica w wholly1 confined to the grade of politicians known as "chipmunks," and ot this grade Cullen stands as nearly at the head as any other, With bis two years' experience in congress, his qualifications are above those of any one of the dozen who would have aspired to succeed him, had the delegation of his own county been against him. He m at least a man of good character, gentleman who knows how to comport himself among gentlemen, and has the modesty and good sense In congress to hold his tongue, except when obliged to speak He is painstaking, industrious, and no doubt will look as closely after the little matters of his district the postmasters whisky gaugers and internal revenue as 8essors and collectors ss any other man we could send. Beyond this three-fourths ot all the members the people send to con gress have no other function, except to voto as instructed by the party leaders when their names are called. I50L18H VICTORY III I0TFT, It now looks as If Gen. WoUeley may be able to redeem the promise ke made when he sailed for Egypt, that he would end the war in lime to dine with his iriends in London by the 20th of September. The British armies on Wednesday achieved a great victory in Egypt. Late on Tuesday evening they struck camp at Kassassic and by midnight bivouacked on a high rldgo six miles east of Tel-el-kebir. At 1:30 the march was resumed upon the strong position of Arabi Pasha at Tel-el- Kebir, fortified by five miles of entrench ments and manned with 20,000 regulars, 70 guns and some 4000 cavalry, Bedouins and other iriegulars. The English force consisted ot 11,000 Infantry, 2000 cavalry, and 00 guns. The distance from the ridge to the Egyptian works was about six miles. Gen. Wolselcy 's dispatch says : To have attacked so strong a position by daylight with the troops 1 could place in the field would have entailed very great toss. 1 resolved therefore to attack before daylight, marching the six miles that in tervened between my camp and the ene my's position in the darkness. The cavalry and two batteries of horse artillery on the right had orders to sweep round the enemy's line at daybreak. - The nrsi division, composed or tne second Brigade, under General Graham, supported by the Foot Guards under the Duke of Uonnaugbt, and seven batteries or artillery, numbering forty-two guns, with support ing brigade. Then came the second divi sion, the Highland Brigade, leading, with the Indian contingent Tnexe were oa the south side of the canal, with the naval on gade on the railway, and in the interval advanced. A great emulation waa evinced by the regiments to be first in the enemy's works. All went at them straight, tlid Royal Irish particularly distinguishing itseii tiy its aash and the manner in which it closed with the enemy. All the enemy's works and camp are now in our possession. J do not yet know exactly the number of guns csptured, but it is considerable. Several trains, with immense quantities of supplies, were cap tured. The enemy ran away in thousands, throwing away their arms when overtaken by the cavalry. Their loss is very great. The Egyptians were not entirely taken by surprise, tor they fired the first guns. The orders of Gen. Wolselcy to his men were not to fire at all but charge with the bayonet. The rush was made over a dis tance of 200 yards, the men sending up a loud cheer snd then charging up the steep slopes of the trenches. The Egyptians were terror stricken, many hiding in the corners ot the works while others fled The slaughter was fearful, and over 3,000 prisoners were taken, while the British loss is placed at 180 killed and about 500 wounded. The whole affair occupied less than half an hour. Then followed a contused rush of fugi tives towards Zagazig, followed by Gen McPherson's Indian brigade, making the route complete, the artillery seading shot and shell after the fugitives. Arab! him. self, it is said, as soon as the British troops got into the intrench ments, mounted a train and Bteamed off towards Zagazig. Subsequent accounts are that after a brief rest McPherson pushed his 4th cavalry and the Indian contingent on to Zagazig, reaching there at 4:14 P. u., in time to seize five railroad trains with their en gines. No attempt was made to defend the place, the Governor coming out and surrendering to the British, the people apparently hailing their advent with glad ness. Coming Down. The continued favors- bin weather for the growing corn crop is causing a general tumble in the markets. Whereas the opinion nearly ail summer prevailed that the corn crop of the year must be from 80 to 40 per cent, short of an average, the continued favorable weather gives appearances that the crop will be largely in excess oi lsst year, and a full average for the whole country. A group of La Salle county farmers assured us yes terday with beaming countenances that all of their first planting ot corn was already beyond the reach of frost, while two weeks more of such weather as this would save the rent The effect oi such assurances on the market has been a serious tumble in prices. Instead ot 70(3 72 cts., the price a few weeks ago, cash corn in Chicago, yes terday was quoted at 62Q63, and "seller the year" at 40c. Wheat and oats, la sym patby with corn and on account of the largo crop now safely harvested, have also gone down, the former from $1.18(91.20, a few weeks ago, to 07 99c; and oats from 00c to 29(? 30c; and for the same reason of an abundance of corn and consequent fat beef and hogs, cattle, pork and lard are sharing in the tumble, lard having fallen nearly two cents a pound within a week, leading to the failure of three of the heavi est operators in New York. Crops abroad are generally good, so that there will be no great demand for American cereals for shipment except at low prices. So the present prospect is a large and active fall business, but at lower prices all round than have prevailed for the last two or throe years. Walter Hoge, ot Streator, was around this week attending strictly to his duties as assistant supervisor for his town. For politician seeking a nomination for county clerk at a convention to be held two weeks hence this is quite exemplary conduct Most politicians In his place would be out fence-making. But probably Mr. Hoge's fences are all "fixed." We hope they are. We should like to have the opportunity to support him fot county clerk. We imag- i Ins he has been tklnklng of this candidacy for some lime. At any rate, he has been studying tho machinery of the county offi ces pretty thoroughly for some time past, and we know ot no man in the county more thoroughly qualified to fill the posi tion he aspires to than himself. Tho rrehlbltionleta. Following is the full ticket nominated by the Prohibition Home Protection Party on Tuesday last: State senator, J. W. Barnhardt; representative,-Fawcct Plumb; probate judge, Joel T.Buckley; sheriff, II. H. Matlock; treasurer, G. L. Blanch ard; county clerk, G. L. Taylor; probate clerk, Wm. A. Youmans ; coroner, Dr. C. O. Courtrlght; county superintendent of schools, Miss Lydia Strawn. These candidates stand on tho following platform, promulgated by the same con vention as their "confession of faith :" Whereas, The manufacture ana sale of intoxicants as a beverage aro crimes against God and a cririie and sin against man which no human enactment nor usage can make right, and that Christianity, humanity and patriotism demand there abolition; therefore Jieeolted, That aiiy political organization in existence asking the suffrage of the peo ple, without moral courage to tell the truth and to put In issue the paramount needs of the times, brands itself as un worthy of public confidence. liesotted. That the manufacture and sale of intoxicaiiug liquors as a beverage is not only In violation of every principle of morality and subversive of all the interests of good government, but that it is in viola tion of the fundamental principles of poli tical economy; that it is a magnificent system of waste and wrong against God and man, aod that the people ought to stamp it out of political existence. Roeolved, That the Prohibitionists ot La Salle county, believing in the theory that the people are the source ot all power and have a right to determine what shall be the fundamental Jaw ol" the state, are in favor ot the submission of an amendment to the constitution of Illinois prohibiting the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors as a beverage, to the end that the legal voters of the state may have an op portunity of settling the question of prohi bition according to the wishes of the people. Resolved, That the senator and repre sentatives of this district are hereby re quested to favor the introduction of meas ures looking to the submission ot such an amendment to the people for their adop tion or rejection. Retohed, That we favor the universal and enforced education of the youth of the nation, with ample provision for the sup port of an adequate and efficient system of free pubic schools in all the states and ter ritories, r Rttolud, That we protest against putting aside the revenue on intoxicants tor school purposes, and arraign it as a measure cal culated to perpetuate the liquor traffic in this country. Among the multitudinous candidates for governor at the late election in Maine was a candidate ot the Prohibition party. As prohibition of the most rigid kind has been the law in that state for 25 years and all parties assent to It, it isn't exactly clear to ordinary comprehension why there should be an exclusive prohibition party there. Perhaps the party is trying to pro hibit the private bottle hid in chinks of the wall, hung in the well, Ac, that Keal Dow speaks ot. If so, it don't seem to have many friends, as it got less than 1000 votes. Bloomington was taken by surprise on Wednesday by the annoucement of the failure of Thomas J. Cox, proprietor of the Eagle and Union flouring mills of that city. He is short about $90,000, but has property enough to secure all his local debts. About 25,O0O, however, which he is behind in board ot trade margins, are unprovided for, gambling in options hav ing been the cause of all his troubles. The Republican Congressional Con vbntion of the 8th Illinois district met in the Opera House in Ottawa at 12 o'clock on Wednesday, full delegations being in attendance f.om the five counties consti tuting the district. Hon. It. A. Child, of Du Page, was called to the chair; and It. M. Woods of Will and Dr. Hand of Grundy were appointed secretaries. There being n other business, Mr. Blanchard moved to proceed to the noml nation of a candidate tor congress, and presented the name ot William Cullen. The ebairman of the Will county delega tion seconded the nomination and proposed that it be made by acclamation. A Du Page delegate moved that it be done by a rising vote, which was agreed to, and thereupon William Cullen was nominated unanimously, by acclamation, by a rising vote. A committee was appointed to inform Mr. Cullen of the fact and fetch him into the convention ; and as he was not far off he soon came up smiling, and made the little speech he had carefully conned for the occasion. A congressional distiict central commit tee was appointed, and then the convention adjourned. At a meeting of the Business Men's As sociation a few evenings since a commit tee was appointed to see what could bo done about a clock tor the court house. We are informed by prominent members of the board that if Ottawa city will make a movement in this direction at an early day it is more than probable the board will respond liberally. Tho committee will find it advantageous to talk with the court house building committee, and per haps some arrangement may be made whereby a good serviceable clock and bell could be procured and put up before the derricks are taken away. A clock house has been constructed within the building, and the center walls carried to the roof so that everything is ready as soon as the time keeper shall have been ordered. It seems to bo the prevailing opinion both among the board and citizens that a good instru ment should be obtained If any say one worth perhaps 13,000 which would be warranted for 50 years. David P. Jones, Esq., of this cfty, de sires it to be fully understood that he is a candidate for nomination by the approach ing Democratic County Convention for the office ot rrobate Judge. So far as we are advised, be is the only democrat who asks for tne nomination. The qualifications of Mr. Jones for tho position we presume no ono will have the hardihood to question. He is one ot our ablest lawyers. It is a suf ficient attestation of his ability in that re-1 ipect that to him really belongs the ersdit ot having discovered tho points and laid the foundation for the successful defense of the towns interested in tho great Fox Htver Railroad bond suit. While his in tcgrity and purity of character are above questiou, his peculiar forte lies in what among lawyers is known asoflluu busiuchs, exactly the qualification needed for a flrM class Judge of probate. While the republican county convention will be sailed upon to decide between a wilderness of candidates, the democratic convention will not have much less of a task. The patriots who, with tho eye of faith, see a chance for them to get into of fice, form a mighty phalanx. For state senator, M. A. McKey, ex-mayor of Men dota, seems to be in tho lead, but Hon. John Miller, chairman of the board of supervisors, and James W. Duncan, tiie rising young attorney, aro close behind. For representative, Alex. Vaughey is sure of renominntion, but who is to bo his nsso ciate is not disclosed. For county j mine, II. T. Gilbert, of Ottawa, will probably have no opposition, though M.T. Moloney has been mentioned as a coming man. For treasurer, no man so bold as to contest the nomination with I'nclo .Sam Raymond 1ms been found in the county. Km county clerk, Pat Fiulan and Walter Hoge, both of Streator, are on the track, with tin evm chance between Iheni. A. T. HartoK of Ottawa, seemed lo have a walk a way with tho nomination for protmte clerk, until lust week wheu supervisor Hotl'man, of Eagle, shied his castor into the ring. The slier itl'alty is the prize for which W. It. Milli gii and H. G. Barrett, of Karlville, are runniug, with Milligan a full lengtU,ahead as they come around towards the grand stand. The position of coroner does not seem to draw out tho enthusiasm of the doctors, but Dr. Cletuienen, of La Sail'.1, is the coming man. Stmitor Free l're. The above is a pretty full and fair view of the "field" so far as the democrats Hie concerned, except that in regard to the scnatorship we think by all odds the name of J. W. Duncan should have the place given to that ol Ex-Mayor McKey. of Men dota; and the name of M. T. Molorey for county Judge should have been entirely omitted. lie is not a candidate. Then there is the important omission of the name of David P. Jones, for Probate Judge, who, so far as we are at present advised, will have no opposition. Having now full possession of the rail road and canal, thero was no delay here, but the British hastened their iorwurd movement tow ards Cairo whither Arabi in his flight had preceded them, and arrived there on Thursday night and at 9 o'clock, without opposition, took possession of the city, Arabi being within its walls virtually a prisoner. So the war is really over. Del egations from all parts ot the country are hastening to Alexandria to express their loyalty and submission to the Khedive, who is of course restored to full authority over the country under "British protec tion." Wolselcy is the lion of the day an! is receiving congratulations from all the crowned beads of Europe including even the Sultan of Turkey. Our neighbor calls us the Graveyard Gazette. This is a reckless throwing away of gifts. We have never yet been able to resurrect from tho grave the corpse of a Wedron row, dead, buried and decom posed six mouths ago and seriously imag ine wo could make a sensation of it. We have never been able to show this kind of enterprise. We sadly, but, being caught at it, honestly admit we have not the abil ity. Wo must yield the palm here to our idiot over the way. As will be seen in the proceedings of the supervisors, Mr. Gilbert urged more care in the selection of jurors. This is an opportune subject. No one outside the court house can appreciate the carelessness or something else that is apparent to those inside. Even among the selections made on Thursday, immediately after the sub ject had been discussed, the name of one man was suggested as a grand jurer who if indeed alive must at this day be over 90 years of age i At a recent term ot court we had occasion to look over a venire re turned by the sheriff. His notes on the margin showed one man dead for at least ten years, several others had left the state from one to five years ago, and others were marked "not found" whose residences had been changed in the county. All these missing ones, as Mr. Gilbert suggested, arc a bill of useless expense, a part, at least, of which could be avoided. Charles Blanchard says that he has not been, is not, and will not be'a candidate m for county judgo. The leader reports that the farm house of G. L. Buland, four miles east of Earl, ville, was burglarized on Tuesday night. The house was thoroughly ransacked, but only a small amount of money was taken Considerable jewelry was refused. The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy com pany has issued 4 per cent $100 bonds in order to supply its employes' demand for small investments. The company ex changes one $1,000 bond for ten smaller ones, and it is said that during the few weeks that this plan has been in operation between $75,000 and $100,000 of these bonds havo been taken, mostly by employes of the road. Half a million of bonds have been called for solely along tho line ot the road. The remains of Newton A. Waterman, a former citizen of Ottawa and a member of the Cook county bar, are expected to arrive from Chicago to-day. His death occurred yesterday. . Home Individualities. Dow. Mrs. J. W.

K. D. Taylor, of Mcmlota, made one of the best speeches of his life. The paper mentioned above was edited at that time by Chas. H. l.aniphier, a sound democrat, an tin. clo of our worthy clerk. The stump of the old hickory liberty pole ''.ill remains vlslblo to the eye, and the democrats of our stato capital point to it with pride, swear by it and teach their children to follow the footsteps of Old Hickory and those who raised it. The circuit clerk would not part with his treasure for a farm." AMI S.KMKNT3 The sale or seats for Mather was about M up to noon yesterday. Bull'iilo Bill played at the Opera House on Thursday night to :lot. Mr. W. K. Lecky is golug to publish an "Opera House Programme." It will be print cd iu two or three colors, ou line tinted and perfumed book pupcr, and made the haad somest programme In the state. The man agement of the Opera House guarantee to distribute 1,1100 copies for each show, which will bo the number printed. It will not only bo distributed in the House, but throughout tho city and in surrounding towns that are ih the habit of attending entertainments iu Ot tawa, and will therefore be a valuable me dium for advertising, coutracts far which will bo taker, at once. Of Miss Mather tho Chicago correspondent of tho Jf us it' aii'l Jiraiua says: "Physically sha is well endowed, but shu is not what can bo called a beauty. In flgurd she is not un like Maude Harrison. Her face is expressive, It has a slight Jewish cast, but It lacks the strength of a pure Hebrew face. Her eyes aro dark and lustrous, and can bo made a raoro striking feature when she understands more perfectly the art of iiiako up.' Her head is poised upon a pair of well shaped shoulders. Her arms are finely shaped, and her hands and feet are small. Her voice it sweet, musical and resonant, but It seems to tne that it lacks power in moments of pas sion. I am told :hat the only practical expe rience Miss Mather every had was during a two weeks' tour iu country towns with Mr. George Edgar, yet she walked tho stage on Monday evening with tho confldenco ol a veteran. Generally she is eusy in her ways and gestures, her reading it invariably just, and her business may bo said to be strictly traditional, although in two or tin ue scenes there is an indication of decided independ ence in her treatment. Above all her quali fications, she possesses the raro gifts of sym paty, pathos and magnetism, which carry the audience with her. From what I have said you can readily imagine what sort of a tifi( she Is. Thero was every evidence in the performance of deep study and hard training perhaps her training was a little two obvi ous, and this gave, to some of the scenes, such as those with tho Xursc and tho weep ing sconces, a theatrical smack which robbed them of their simplicity and force. Her scenes with the Friar and tho potion were really well considered and effective pieces of acting, and I have never seen an actress make more out of the effect of the potion than Mist Mather. When the curtain fU on Monday evening upon this act tho enthusiasm of tho audience was of a very extraordinary kind. If It was not genuine It should have been. Her death tccno Is also admirably managed and played with a quiet Intensity in excellent contrast to the preceding scenes." ANXOl'KCKJIKMS. Wnare authorized to anuounco that B. G.
