Frovn'thc Inside recess of Msvapa

took out ten rolls of wall paper, worth
at least 1 cents a roll.
On the reverse of the vall paper
Mr. Becho had written a speech.
Mr. Bcclte read his speech.
It was the same speech which had
boon printed In sundry -nllegcd dallies
devoted to the Bradford Interests.
Efforts were made to choke Mr.

They were unavailing.
Mr. Bijcbc tlnlshcd his speech. It

Mr. Boldciiwcdk made a sensible
and manly spcci'h, based upon the
evidence of citizens aud teachers, In
favor of Mrs. Bradford's removal.
Mr. Brcnau -spoke against Mrs.
Bradford In a calm, dispassionate
manner that carried conviction with
It, especially when he quoted the
strong evidence against the principal.
Tho handsome and talented Mr.

Just the same.
Koine pleasant Interruptions by
Mr. Trade gave Mr. RoenlhaI an
opportunity to cause laughter.
Mr. Trudo reviewed the testimony
and pointed out thestiong, uucolored
evidence given against tho school
principal by the teacheis, none of
whom weru actuated by malice or
envy. Ho emphasized tho fact that
the evidence clearly pioved that Mrs.
Bradford had uod her position to

Mr. He veil took the same ground
against Mrs. Bradfoid.
After much parllmeutlary sparring,
Mr. Bevell offered the following leso

to Make It Epi

tho Stato Board of
Dr. B. M. (irlitlu, Chairman of the
Illinois Board of Health, and Dr. F.
W. RoMly. Secretary, were In com
munication with the New York
health olllclals until a late hour
Tliuisday. As a result of the In
formation obtained the following
statement vas authorized:
"While the Intelligence or live
deaths fiom Asiatic cholera among
residents not immigrants of New
York City, one of tlioso eight days
ago, was a most unpleasant surprise
to Western hcaltli olllclals, still there
is nothing In the situation to cause
panic or even excitement. The de
lay in admitting the existence of the
disease was natuial, but it docs not
appear that any precaution has
been neglected on this account.
From the II r.-t suspicion the cases
have lieeu t rented as though it was
known thai they were genuine chol
era. Premises have been disinfected,
inmates kept (iuiliirstrlclsurvolllaneo.,
and the most rigid care has Itccn ex
ercised, in Its own interests New
York cannot afford to haveany spread
from these cases nor loom others
which may he now lea-ouahly antici
pated before tho advent of cold
weather. As to any Immediate
danger to the couutiy from these
sporadic, cases there are Uicmj facts to
"1. The cases have oceuirod among
a clas of people not likely to start au
exodus from tho localities and so to
spicad the infection.
'"2. As alieady recited, reliance
may be placed on the natural Interest
of New York to make every cffoi t to
pievcnt any spicad.
".I. Kvoiy day brings us nearer
the season when cholera, at least In
this country, Is chocked by low tem
perature. "1. The history of tho disease on
this continent shows thut, while it
has repeatedly effected a foothold on
the mainland in tho fall of the year,
It has never been until icpealed in
troductions that it lias spread as au
epidemic. In tho epidemic of 1S.V1
It took eighteen months after the
llrst cases on the mainland to o licet
a lodgment aud become epidemic.
"."i. The sanitary defenses of the
country were never mi well oigaulmi
to battle with and suppress au epi
demic of any preventable disease.
"The practical deduction Irom these
considerations Is that, as already
said, there Is no occasion for even ex
citement. What remains, as the
lesson of the situation, Is that every
community and commonwealth should
realize in practical cil'ort that Its im
munity from the cholera, as from
other preventable disease, rests with
itself. It must work out Its own
salvation aud not rely upon any
vicarious protection of quarantine.
Every source of tilth, or pollution or
water, soil, or air, must receive
prompt aud effective attention, and
not only must municipalities exert
themselves but every house
holder for himself must put
his own house aud premises
In order. X'o cleanly city, town or
village with a proper disposal of ex
.reta and with a puro water supply
noed apprehend u visitation of chol
era. In all human probability thcro
remains from now until next spring
in which to perfect tho work of sani
tation already well under way
throughout tho length and breadth
of Illinois. With tho present warn

Tin: name of Daniel Dougherty
must now lie added to the long list of
distinguished men whom death has
claimed as its victims during tho
present year. Mr. Dougherty was a
groat lawyer and a magnetic orator.
Ills grandest triumphs were -achieved
as an advocate addressing a Jury.
There tho owor of his remarkable
eloquence had full play, and his ap
peals were materially aided in their
effectiveness by his extraordinary
knowledge of human nature. It has
been said of him that before he began
to speak he made It' a point 'to ac
quaint himself Intimately with the
character of every man in tho Jury
box his iolltlcs, religion, national
ity, 4i ml other distinguishing traits
an'l Vi1k hobbies, weaknesses, .and ec
centricities, as well, If he had them.
Mr. Dougherty's career at the bar
was highly successful. In iolltlcs he
was a doctrinaire Democrat, but he
never sought nor hold public olllce.
Ills speech placing General Hancock
In nomination I'm- President or the
I'nlted States, made at tho National
Democratic Convention in Cincin
nati In 1880, was a superb orat trial
effort, which attracted wide atten
tion aud elicited much deserved
praise. He also nominated (1 rover
Cleveland for tho Presidency at tho
St. Louis convention In ISSS.

A Toiionto lawyer, said to be one
of tho rebels of 1M7, seems to think
the United States are still In their
swaddling clothes. He is so wrathy
over the President's relallatroy meas
ure that he wants the Canadian mil
itia thoroughly organized and oquliv
pod to repel the threatened Invasion
or "American paid desperadoes."
After frantically recalling the action
of the brave Canadians who sprang
to arms In 181 L, he closes his absurd
ebullition by shouting that "Britons
nnd Canadians cannot be slaves." No,
but some of them can be "heap dam
phools," it appears.
