HON. S. W. RIDERBURG,
Strongly Backed for County Clerk On tho Ropublioan Ticket.
S. W. ItldcrbuiVi the present depu
ty county clerk and Itcpubllcan can
didate for County Clerk, u placo he Is
well iuallllcd to (111, was born In
Sweden In 1840. Ho came to tho
United States when IS years of age.
He came to Chicago at once, and
while u youth was employed on the
Union Pacific Railroad In surveying
and later as foreman of the car shops
In Omaha. He returned to Chicago
In 1SUS and was employed by A. H.
Andrews & Co , the school furniture
manufacturers, In the woodwaro de
partment. Ho remained with that
firm until 1874. He then went with
Simons, Clark & Co., frame manu
facturers, a general foreman.
In 1SS2 ho accepted a position un
der Recorder .lames W. llrockway us
clerk, in which position he remained
through the latter's term of olllcc,
nnd for two years later under Wiley
In 1880, when Henry Will IT wes
elected County Clerk he was appoint
Mr. Charles Ncttcrstrom has
proven himself to be a faithful pub
lic servant on the County Hoard.
His record Is a very good one, and
tho Republican county convention
will without doubt renominate him
for the position ho now (Ills so well.
The esteemed Tribune has this to
say of tho Democratic, ticket: "It
would bo idle to dony that this is a
strong ticket from tho Democratic
point of view. The Republican poli
ticians will make a great mistake if
they think it is a weak ticket. The
managers of tho local Tammany are
shrowd politicians, and they bulldcd
their ticket wisely. The Hibernian
element was held Id check to some
extent, nnd the Germans were pushed
to the front and given a larger
representation than usual. They
get the nominees for County Treasu
rer, the Criminal Court Clerk, and
four of the ten Commissioners. The
Poles nnd the Iiohomluns also get
icprcscntatlon, and the "silk-stocking
clement, " us well as tho "short
hair rough-and-tumble" Democracy,
is not ignored. The managers are
thus In a position to take the ag
gressive. Tho Republicans must bo
In a position to meet them. Thoy
must nominate a ticket as strong
personally and less objectionable in
some respects thin the Democratic
ticket. They must not placo them
selves on tho defensive by tho nomi
nation or weak or doubtful or blem-1-hed
candidates. Most of the Dem
ocratic nominees are men who aro
comparatively now In politics. That
is an advantage. Tho Republicans
must not make tho m'stako or
nominating hack candidates to op
pose them "
At a largo meeting or representa

was Indorsed for County Judge. J, L.

false statements as to Parker's ability
to carry tho Twelfth Ward.
There was a conference of Republi
cans, from tho twelve South Sldo
wards In the Lexington Hotel Tues
day night Aid. O'Neill presided.
Its prime object was to formulate a
demand on tho county convention
for two places on tho ticket outsldo
of County Superintendent of Schools,
and for throe County Commissioners
as well. This committee wns ap
pointed to carry out theso objects:
James Madden, J. H. Gilbert, Will

bill. Mr. Van Cleave, whoso many
friends hope to seo him on tho ticket,
Is standing aloof from any combina
tions at present and may go Into tho
convention as a freo lance. "Tho
First Ward will bo for tho First
Ward," he said to-day, "and our dele
gation will go to tho convention to
do what it can for tho ward organi
zation." The County Board Public Service

Mr. Strasshclm is still making an

nomination for the County Treasurer-
ship. Mr. Strasshclm believes tho
influence of James Pease is being ex
erted In his fnvor, nnd Mr. Raymond
has been notllted that he will have
to fight for every delegate he gets,
even In his own ward.
Hod. John Mccr, tho able and
popular member of the Legislature,
will again be honored by his party
by a rcnotn I nation this fall.
Tho many friends of Mr. Charles
Gross ato working like beavers to
nominate him for Sheriff. They
claim he Is sure of the solid delega

second. Charley Is u hustler, and
his prospects look bright,
Frank Lawlcr Is on the warpath In
the Fourth Congressional -District,
and says that if he N not nominated
by the Democrats next month he will
run Independent. The Indications
aro that the Democrats will nom

and M. E. Cole Is forging to the front,

Senator Ed Noonan is gaining
ground every day In his race for the
Congressional nomination In tho
Fifth District. Tho Eighteenth
Ward is solid for him, and, It Is
claimed, the Thirteenth llkowlsc.
Sixteenth Ward Democrats nro unani
mous for lilm, their club having ic
ccntly met nnd pronounced In his fa
vor. It looks like "sure money" to
bet on Noonan.
Mr. Louis A. Klcc, of the Twenty
fifth Ward, who polled a handsome
vote on tho Democratic Lnko View
town ticket last spring, will probably
bo nominated for the Legislature.
Mr. Klco Is very popular.
"Ross" McLnughlln, one of the
most popular young Dcrnociatsof tho
Twelfth Ward, is strongly talked of
for tho Legislature.
Mr. Thomas E. Gavin will surely

for tho Legislature In the Twenty
third District, lie Is a business man
of great popularity.
Hf.nuy S. Ives, tho dead "finan
cial Nnpolcon," began llfo In tho
metropolis as a sweep, a scrubber of
floors, a menial, a drudge, at 92 a
week In two years ho hud but risen
to a Junior clerkship in a broker's
olllcc, which paid him 110 a week.
Rut in that clerkship he had acquired
knowlodgo of financial methods and
situations which, allied to his natu
ral mental' traits of audacity and
quick perception, perfected an equip
ment which enabled him to rule and
ruin In tho great gambling world into
which ho had but scarce entered as
a novice. In 1880, four yours after
his arrival in New York, this boy had
astounded Wall street by n coup In
telegraph stocks which threatened
tho stability of great financial con
corns, had "squeezed" ono railroad
corporation as one would squeeze a
lemon, nnd, with tho proceeds thus
gained, hud secured control of and
plundered tho rich Cincinnati, Ham
ilton and Dayton system, nnd pur
chased an option on that enormous
property, the Raltimnro and Ohio.
Ho had as bnnker, broker, promoter
nnd agent managed to swing values
as a pendulum nnd to terrorizo and
almost paralyzo tho security market.
Ho played with millions as with
pawns upon a chess board, and in his
trail of devastation loft a wuko of
wrecks of firms, corporations and
properties the like of which tho
world had never seen.
Wiikn an undeveloped youngster
of 10 can rldo eighteen miles in tlfty
seven minutes nnd ten seconds half
tho dlstunco ugainst a strong head
wind It Is ovldont that the evolu
tion of the bicycle Is still in progress.
Rau's performance in the Chicago
road race shows the perfection to
which the modern wheel, with Its
pneumatic tires, ball bearings and
perfect construction, has been
brought, Tho cyclist loug ago dls
tanced the ordinary trotting horse;
ho Is now In close pursuit of tho
thoroughbred, and as his ambition
knows no bounds ho will sooner or
Inter bo found challenging tho loco
motlyo to short distnnco contests.
What tho future of tho bicycle may
bo It Is unsafe to predict. Every
year it has been announced that tho
muchlno has reached Its highest de
velopment, yet each succeeding year
brings forth fresh Improvements.
American skill and ingenuity aro at
work, and it is within the bounds of
probability that tho Chicago road
race may somu time bo won In forty
live minutes or oven less.
Tin: grain o'ovator monopoly In
Rulfalo, which for many years ruled
the trado as with a rod or Iron, Is be-
ICi-lCG UiiOlson St.,
Ing strained R not broken. The float
ing elevators have done It, They have
olTcrcd to transfer grain at rcasona
able rates nnd have done so much of
the buslness'thaWhc stationary ele
vator combine has had to give way.
Tho latter has made It a rule to levy
a toll of I cent per bushel on nil
grain handjed from vessels, nnd did
this In spite of an effort of the Leg
islature to lower the tarllT. The as
soclatton now claims to be charging
I cent per bushel, but probably is not
collecting It In a slnglo Instance. It
charges it up and If payment Is not
made "it Is all right," while icbatcs
arc freely made to those nsklng for
them. When the Moating elevators
began to do business In UulTalo tho
combination made heroic cllorts to
drive them out, and gained assist
ance from the city authorities, but
without avail. The caso was taken
Into the courts, nnd the right of the
floating elevators to do business wns
conceded there. Now the question
Is what will tho combine do with Its
vast mass of elevator property, In
eluding several elevators that long
havo been closed while their owners
were paid dividends outcf thcprollts
of the rest?
Wiikn will corn nnd wheat reach
the same price per bushel? Not n
few careful ol servers of the signs of
the times predict that before the new
century dawns, corn will reach a
higher price than wheat, which can
bo produced the round world over.
Already tho money value of this dis
tinctively American crop is nearly
double that of tho wheat crop of the
country. As a food It Is fast gaining
high favor among the people of tho
old world. It Is easily raised and
docs not exhaust the soil and has
been tho surest and greatest source
of wealth for this country. Tho corn
belt Is n limited one, considering our
Immense arcn. Land within Its
limits' has never shown any perma
nent depreciation. In tho course of
events farm values in this corn belt
must range higher and provo more
profitable than mines and mineral
New Yoiik society belies havo a
new fad, which, while It may not
benefit them grcntly because it Is a
mere fad, certainly cannot do them
any harm. Dozens of sweet young
things, wearied of post-Lenten gay
ctlcs. are arranging to pass the une
ventful Interregnum between now
nnd the time of seaside frivolity In
penitential and restful retreat, Im
muring themselves In a very select
convent for six long weeks. Just
what fad tho typo of New York
young man who corresponds to tho
prettily penitential young woman
will Invent to solace himself during
her period of retirement Is impossible
of conjecture. Some of him, if ho
fulllllcd his proper destiny, would
put in a. month or so in Ludlow street
jail or in the workhouse on the island
The United States Supremo Court
has held that railways have the right,
in time or fuel famine, to appropriate
to their own use coal which Is con

for the fuel thus used und make resti
