Upon an invitation of Warden H. G.
Stordock, the APPEAL visited the peni
teiiiiarv last week, and spent the day
looking o\cr that institution. We
found it most admirably conducted in
every particular. The officers, from
the naiden down, were very courteous
and obliging, and gave us ample oppor
tunity to examine every featme of the
institution with the utmost freedom,
and most minute detail. There are 435
inmates, ranging in age from 16 to 70.
There are 21 Colored prisoners.
There are only five women. There
were only four in the sick ward, and
none of these bedfast. There was but
one confined in the dungeon, all the
rest, or as many of them as were
needed, were employed in the work
shops, or at different occupations about
the institution. We enquired particu
larly and was told, by the
themselves, that there was no
the slightest difference shown on ac
count of color, unless, indeed, the
Colored men seemed to be so fortunate
as to get some of the most desirable
and trusted situations and occupa
The discipline seemed to be humane
but strict and just, The entire institu
tion is heated by Bteam and is warm
and comfortable, and a marvel of neat
ness from one end to the other. The
food furnished is good and wholesome,
and the men have all they want. There
is a library containing over 1,500 vol
umes. The "Prison Mirror," a very
excellent paper, is conducted within
the walls, all the work except the press
work, being done by the inmates it has
a circulation of about 1,200 copies. Tne
proceeds from the paper go to the fund
for maintaining the library. There are
some notable prisoners in the institu
tion among whom are the three
Younger brothers, who have done
eleven years of their life sentences, and
have never broken any of the prison
rules. We met there Samuel McFar
land, the young man who has furnished
the letters from Stillwater which have
heretofore appeared in the APPBAL.
The history of the crime, for which he
was sentenced for seven years, is too
familiar to need repetition here. He
is a bright, intelligent man, and is the
most trusted of any one of the 435 men
in the prison. He has charge of the
warden's office and the rooms of the
"officers of the institution, and by his ex
emplary conduct, has gained the un
qualified confidence of all the officers.
McFarland's case is a very peculiar
one and the unanimous sentiment
among those who know him, and those
who know the facts in his case is, that
he is innocent of the crime with which
he was charged and for which he is
incarcerated. The general impression
is, that he is there because the
law had to have a victim, circumstances
made him that victim, though we are
at a loss to understand, how an intelli
gent, unprejudiced jury could convict a
man with the testimony, such as was
adduced in his caseif we have been
properly informedstaring them in the
face, And we feeU confident that
Governor McGill will cheerfully grant
him a pardon, if the true state of the
case is brought to his knowledge, in the
proper manner. 'Besides being held
in durance vile without beingas we
believeguilty, McFarland has his
constitution so undermined by lung
troubles-that it is only a question of a
short time, ere he will gain his freedom
by death and in the name of common
humanityas well as justicehe should
be pardoned. Ephemeral efforts have
been made toward bringing the matter
before the Goyenor, but a new one is
on foot now, and we sincerely wish
it a speedy and successful termina
We were particular pleased with
Warden Stordock, he appears to be the
very soul of honesty, and to possess
executive ability of the rarest kind as
evidenced by the exceffenl manner
in which the prison is conducted.
Governor McGill made a wise selection
when he appointed him, and we cannot
see how the recent charges again&t him
could have ended otherwise then they
did. Of the prisons we have visited in
,the*several states, we have seen none
more ably officered and conducted, and
we unhesitatingly sav, Warden Stor
dock is the right man in the right
The letter of Hon. James G. Blaine
prohibiting the use of his name as a
paesidential candidate nai hailed with
delight by all the Republicans thiough
out the country who place party before
men. Quite a number of Republicans
who were committed to Mr. Blaine and
would have followed the Plumed Knight
to another defeat, have gladly seized
this opportunity to escape. Few men
of any party question the statesman
ship or ability of Mr. Blaine, yet there
was a peculiar, indescribable fear of
him,that caused even some of his warm
est friends to tremble when they thought
of what might be the probable out
come of elevating him to the presiden
The letter was not emphatic enough
to satisfy everyone that Mr. Blaine
meant that he would not accept the
nomination if it was tendered, and that
he reallv desired to get out of the con
test. But it furnished a road by which
the party will get out of the fearful
dilemma in which it has been flounder
ing. New courage will be instilled into
the breasts of those who feared Mr.
Blaine would again be forced upon the
and again be defeated. Now with
Blaine out of the way there is almost
a certainty of victory assured for the
party, with either of the pfcbbl candi
pates now before the country. A man
can now be found upon which all can
unite, and with a united Republican
party voting its entire strength, that vic
tory will be ours is beyond question.
While would have no objections to
Mr. Blaine as president we did not care
to have him nominated for fear he
would be defeated again, as we suspected
he would be before. The thing we need
most is to win to win with any man
who can win, which we certainly will do
if the trend of the party at present is
followed then Mr. Blaine may perhaps
have the nomination tendered him on a
silver waiter and being in power, with
the lesson we learned, we have may be
able to reward him for allowing us to
win this time, by elevating him to the
goal of his ambition.

Six Thousand Miles
Of railroad does not seem much at this
day when people talk of continental
systems of railway and millions of dol
lars as though they were mere baga
telles. But forty years ago there were
not so many miles under their control.
It is only in the* West that this has
been done, and "The Burlington Sys
tem" is one of the few which is able to
show such a grand total. With all this
vast network of lines, covering the
greater portion of Illinois, Iowa, Mis
souri, Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado,
"The Burlington"Chicago, Burlington
and & Northern Railroadis ia inti*
mate relations, and offers all the ad
vantages of such an extensive connec
tion to the people of Minnesota, Wis
consin, Eastern Iowa, and Northern
Illinois, going North, South, East or
West, and East and South to the people
of Dakota and legions further North

Served up for the Edification of
The ladies! God bless them. When
they make up their minds thev know
how to do it right. This being leap
year, a number of leading social lights,
determined to celebrate it right royally.
For several weeks past, "The Ladies,"
have been holding secret conferences,
to which not even the "kid" reporters
With enormous stars were admitted. It
was made plain to the APPEAL man,
when he received from the fair creat
ures, a beautiful an artistically printed
invitation to be present at the leap
year party, Friday evening last. About
9.30, a carnage etoppgd'at the palatial
residence of the scribe, the bell rang
and a sweet feminine voice enquired,
"Is Mr. Peucilpusher ready?" "The
APPEAL is always ready," responded the
individual called for, as he donned his
sealskin overcoat, and was led to the
carriage by his fair escort. A few
minutes ride and the hall, corner of
Indiana avenue and Thirty-first street,
was reached. Entering the hall, a beau
tiful sight met his gaze. The ladies
were attired in magnificent costumes,
and the gentlemen in regulation dress,
swallow tails, immaculate shirt fronts
showing one stone. It was a represen
tative assemblage, the wealth, beauty
and intelligence of Chicago, were there
present. There were lawyers, doctors,
professors, artests, merchants, teachers
and persons of many other professions.
Lawyers forgot their clients, doctors
their patients, teachers their pupils, and
all present entered heartily into the spirit
of the occasion and allowed the ladies to
have a pleasant time in their company.
Dancing was indulged in during the
evening. At one o'clock the ladies
escorted their guests to the banquet
hall, where all the delicacies were
served by the sweet creatures, while the
gentlemen, so used to dancing attend
ance, sat and ate what was offered to
them. It was so unusual an occrrance
that some of the guests, including the
liter, consumed too large a quantity of
i he cold victuals, and was laid up for
two or tluee davs with "Magenweh."
Toasts were drunk, with clear cold
water, to ihe health of "The Ladies."
After refreshments, dancing was re
sumed and kept up until 3 o'clock,
when the guests departed. Among
those present were:
Mrs. G. W. Washington, black lace
dress, jet trimmings, natural flowers,
Mrs. Cassius King, black lace dress,
