It exonerated Engineer Mahoney from blame. h:'r §R-,< 'Brick" Pomeroy says there are #800,000,000 of silver coin iii the vanltf Of the United States Treasury. He says, too, that King Solomon had $500,000,- 000 worth of stiver locked up in his vaults and yet be was not happy. Of coarse, "Brick's" hobby is that Uncle 8am should use his millions of silver in paying his debts, and thus set it in circu­ lation, which is certainly a good hobby. KST'The Northern Illinois Merino Sheep Breeders' Association which met in annu­ al convention at Richmond, 111., recently passed resolutions protesting against any farther redaction of the tariff on wool. That body of men who are exten­ sively engaged in the business of wool growing can see no salvation in the free trade theories and are satisfied that pro­ tection protects, tence their action as fqrmulated in thier resolutions. The Republican clubs of Illinois are called upon by the Republican state e to send e&ch three delegates to a veution in Representatives' hall at ngfield, Tuesday, February 25th. The iness will include the reports of officers of the league, the election of officers and members of the executive committee for the ensuing year, and the election of dele­ gates to the National League conventiou to be held at Nashville, Tennessee, March m* Den VPKail I©* The messenger of Gov. Campbell of Ohio and Gov. Abbott of New Jersey, both Democrats, following so closely after that Gov. Hill of New York, and favoring phatically the Australian system of oting, have effectually rebuked the utterances on the side of ignorance and fraud of the shameless demagogue of the Empire State. It is very evident that the Democratic party of this nation will not accept the leadership of Gov. Hill on any important subject. Ex-President Ctevelaud, first qf all, holds their allegi­ ance. After him come half a score of men *ho are in sympathy with his ideas on tariff reform and ballot reform, and who are now content to be known simply as the ex-President's lieutenants. With the Democratic party outside of New York Gov. Hill has no position at alL He is the peculiar product of a State ruled by the illiterate voters at the two ends of the Brooklyn bridge. if- lite 0X • 4#®* The residence of Secretary of the Navy Tracy, on I street, Washington, caught fire a few minutes before 7 o'clock Monday morning and was destroyed. The fire was attended with terrible conse­ quences. Mrs. Tracy, wife of the Secre­ tary, while half suffocated with smoke, Came to a window, dragging the uncon­ scious form of her husband. She failed to see a ladder that was being placed to rescue her, and fell to the street below. She died in a few minutes. The bodies of Miss Marie Tracy, the Secretary's young­ est' daughter, and Josephine, a French maid, were taken from the ruins charred almost beyond recognition. Secretary Tracy was taken out unconscious but on being removed to a neighboring resident and cared for, partially recovered. His eldest daughter, Mrs. Wilmerding, and the latter's 13-year-old daughter Alice, leaped from a window and escaped with - slight injuries. It was one of the most shocking calamities that we have been obliged to record for many a day. tffi~The Marengo Republican has the following to say about our next County Treasurer: "Mr. J. li. Perry, of MelTeriry, was in our village Wednesday, interview­ ing our business men and citizens some­ what as to his candidacy for Coanty Treasurer. Mr. Perry is a man whose personnel alone is a good recommenda­ tion, and he made a good impression here. Resides he is an old citizen of our County, did good service under the stars and stripes for his country in the late war, and is a man of good repute where- ever he I'R knojvn, and especially in the eastern part of the County where he re­ sides. He will be glad to have the sup­ port of the Republicans from the western part of the County also, for the office, in the County Convention. Under our present law, Coanty Treas­ urers are elected for four years, and can serve but one term. Capt. W. H. Stew­ art has filled the office, very bly; his term will expire next fall. Supervisor*' Terms. It may be of interest to the voters of this couuty to know that the last legis­ lature changed the law in regard to the length of supervisors' terms of office. Sui^rvisors will hereafter be elected to serve two years. As this is the first year ander the new law, and the intention being to have one-half of the supervisors hold over each year, at the first meeting of the newly elected board lots will be drawn for one and two-year terms. The sujwrvisors drawing the two-year term will hold over another year. After the first year the term of supervisors to be elected will be two years. The law is ap­ plicable to all counties in the state of Illinois except Cook county. • «&~It is about time that American . Birth gave place to indignation over the Ally and misleading weather indications issued by the Signal Service Bureau at Washington. These are as false as churchyard epitaphs, and not half as amusing. They should be abated as public nuisances or else reformed. In­ competence in the officials making out the indications is the only explanation of their unreliability. With the data gath­ ered at the numerous points of observa­ tion, any man, gifted with a nickel's worth of weather sense could formulate predictions twenty-four hours ahead that would approximate more nearly to the truth than the vague, contradictory and unsatisfactory announcements now made from Washington every twelve hours * About half the tame the sapient individ nal in charge does not,take the pains to formulate new predictions. So uniform are these that the public is beginning to •aspect that he has them all ready on tickets which he tosses into a hat and then picks them out at random. Lieut. Greeley in ay be a great Arctic explorer, bat as chiex of the Signal Service Bureau be is an arrant fraud. The truth is, his heart is in the past with his Arctic explo- rations and not in present observations A Reply to a Liar. A hired man of Chamberlain's Insur­ ance Agency, of Elgin, 111., called upon a number of our citizens here last week to renew their unexpired insurance in the Rockford Insurance Co.. in some cases 6 or 7 months in advance of the time, and succeeded by a rehearsed tale of false rep­ resentations and lies to take up their fully paid for insurance and renewing the same at a higher rate than required, be­ sides taking up that that was already paid for, by claiming to be a special, that I was only agent for the mercantile, or store, factory, etc., branch of the busi­ ness, and could not, and had no author­ ity whatever to, solicit or collect any dwelling or farm insurance; also that the dwelling risks written by Mr. Morey were so full of errors that he (havingno doubt enlargement of the heart) desired to place the assured once more on a safe road in regard to their insurance. All this from a stranger free gratis; to which the as­ sured do not say amen in any sense of the word, judging from the rates they agree to pay this benevolent missionary from the vicinity of the insane asylum. Now I desire one and all to fully under­ stand that I am fully authorized by the Rockford Insurance Company of Rock- ford, 111., and the Phenix Insurance Co.', of Brooklyn, N. Y., and also by the audi­ tor of this State, to transact all kinds of fire, lightning, or tornado insurance written by the companies, either for cash, note, etc., whether mercantile or farm, or dwelling insurance. Also that I paid good money to Mr. Morey for the risks in this vicinity, and I further assure the public that Mr. Morey knew more about, and did a more careful insurance business for our citizens than any lying dude ever knew of or could do. In case of loss or any endorsement to be made the assured have no friend to appeal to but leave their business with a stranger. All the risks sneaked from me by sneaking in a long time before they expired, wert only secured by false and lying representation and statements, and I assure the patrons of any company lower rates and a careful guarding of their interests if placed with me, as I am only too glad to give the names of sev­ eral hundred patrons whom I have in­ sured with entire satisfaction to all con­ cerned. Very Truly You rs, SIMON STOFFEL. l®"The experience of England with the Armstrong guns of 110 tons, 16 inch cal­ iber, is a warning that should not pass unheeded by the United States. That Government has built seven guns of this size, four of which have broken dowij, though never subjected to the test of half an hour's firing. These guns cost $150,- 000 each, and are designed to throw a projectile weighing 1,800 pounds fifteen miles. But they are so unwieldy that it is impossible to load and fire them rap­ idly, even if they can be used at all. Then, their life is brief in service. They are counted good for only seventy-five shots, owing to disintegration and ero­ sion. England is reported cured of its craze for this style of gun, and will build no more of them. CBOCP frequently finds a household un­ prepared for its visit, while the rapidity with which it develops calls for instant treatment. For this dangerous disease Ayer's Cherry Pectoral is an admirably remedy. It saves many lives every year. Keep it in the house. The! Old' Doctors Drew blood, modern doctors cleanse it; hence the increased demand for Altera­ tives. It ia now well known that most diseases are due, not to over-abundance, but to impurity, of the Blood; and it Is equally well attested that no blood inedicine is so efficacious as Ayer's Sarsaparilla. . . i . 9ne °i my children had a large sore out OI* the leg.
