There should he no mesas by which
the fftettatts and the evil disposal may

llerniWIcacs were in the right so far
lut they were not content with that.
They established a precedent of re
jlrcstton, and, in the reran of Mr.
Uebd, jet up an agency of brutal and
tyrannical favoritism. The House-,
owl or these forbidding auspice, be
ratne a mere machine for the expedi
tion of partisan legislation and for the
dlscvtiragemcnt of debate and delibera

went through without reference to pro

It eccurred to the Democratic mind
of Illinois that something should be

bring about a reform of the method of
nominating candidates for the United
The UMial method is as follows: The
re preventatives of each party In the
LeeMature meet in caucus, and tbl
lancwe names the candidate. As a ge.

money obtains the nomination, and in
inoct eases some man is aketed to the
h'easte who could not have succeeded
if he bad bees compelled to go directly
to his fettow-pertlsaM outside the LegU

"We will get as near as possible to the

The three Commissioners of the
Civil Service arc of one opinion on one
epiestlon. They agree that the Com
mission hnuld be reorganised as a

Commissioner fence tlrst. Then, as a
n alter of course, along came the ejasy.
Irplng TitoMrsox, following the high
kicking and loud neighing Kooskvhi.t,

nlf, as a matter of course. Commis
sioner Lyman dog trotted to thefence,
lookeel sadly at It, but also jumpeel over
It, tearing eliinu the top r,til. lint they
all got over It.
And now the UotIon arises. Which
of the three Commissioners shall bo the
one Comrolisloncr? Upon this eiusetlon
Mr. Hooskyelt has been pleased to say
that, in his opinion, Governor Thomi1
win should lie selected. "With Gov
criHir Thompson as Commissioner of
the Chll t-ui vice, ilit CommUslon would
be an ideal one, and In this way I would
lme the CoinmlMlnn organlzeel if I
could," the untdrlkb, patriotic and
alwsysilnglng the-bell to letyou-kuow-tiat-he-Is
coming ItooekVKi.r has been
pleated to say; but be does not believe
that his fellow partisans are up to his
high notch on this question.
We aeree with Sir. IIoosbvblt that
Governor Thompson would be an. ex
cellent head of the Civil Service Com
mission, but we must qualify this broad
assertion just a little. The Governor Is
In many rpects a gooel man for any
place. He is one of those men, not
numerous, who can befitted into almost
any official position. If the bole to be
tilled Is square be can be squared; if it
is round he can be rounded, Sut the
Governor is a conservative gentleman.
He would not attempt to go back, whoa
"returning were as tedious as go o'er;"
but we mistake the Governor's char
acter If be would be, under any circum
stances, a suggester of an improvement
or of a reform. He has none of the
ebaracleiisticsof theplonser, Hewalts
until the savages have been driven away,
the trees cut down, gelds wade, and
bouses bulk. Then heeowee alomrasd
accepts with thankfulness the results of
the voik of others; and, resting under
the shade trees U suutsser and sitting
cefcily by the Are in winter, he very
nbly MtaMkges his subordinates while
they "keep the pisee up." To bis su
periors he can always show a nae record,
arel he never falls to merit theeonsBMe
daiki of "Well doe. good and faith
ful servant" As Civil Service Cosn
leissktaer he would sit faithfully at the
htlea of the much abused craft aJ

He is, too, a man nf originality. He

and his Influence in Its management Is

he talks to the point. He believes in

fights for his belief. The enemies of
the reform have a valiant foe In htm.
He Is always charging upon them with

merits of that performance. U'o have
heard It everywhere commended as most

account of Its dramatic ami literary excel

Tho vencrnble nnd prov
erbial "chestnut" is not
more familiar than the
tradesman's resonant cry
of "last chance." It
doesn't rhyme with "job,"
"slaughter" or "sweep
ing," but 'tis sung In the
samo meter nnd to most
people Is quite as weari
some ns tho sharps nnd
Hals of "Annlo lloonoy."
Then, why use It? Be
cause It lolls the story as
nothing else will do. Thoro
nro no two words in tho
English language quite so
strong at this time. Next
wcok fall trndo will begin.
The wheels will turn slow
ly at first, of course, but
they'll turn just enough to
let in early arrivals of new
fall goods, and they've got
to have room. fco "Inst
chance" will have to be
sung as a JtrmU for sum
mer low prices; If neces
sary we'll rexmt the cho
ins. For till week wu'll
10 1 taliy Canlages.
5 Wntor Coolers.
These Will Bo Hold at Cost.

These- Will Bo Sold LKSS Than Cost.
For tbiH week we'll give 30 per cent,
discount on nil Parlor, Chamber and
Mlicellaneous Furniture. After this
wetk regular prices.
