wade Immediate preparations to lake the

Sunday the slrr cts were completely thronged
With people, and continued so until night.
It at' blent to c cry observer, that Chi
cago, by their conversation and general de
meanor, of all people, sympathized more
deeply and earnestly with the sufferer of
the " hub," than other rould. A mcetliifi
was railed to ineetat noon on Monday nt the
hall of the board of trade, Jand before 12
o'elock the halt was filled to oetllouliif:.
At 12-10 o'clock, the meeting was called to
order by J. M.; Proton, president of the
lKard of trade, and alter rcfcrlnj to the ob
ject of the assembly, Mr. Preston nominated
Mayor Mcillll ax chairman of the meeting.
On taklmr the rhalr. his honor referred to
the terrible disaster which had overtaken
our filter city, Boston, In very feeling tcrin.
He said It seemed but yesterday that we had
a similar visitation, which crushed us to
earth and ashes, lie said It was due to our
humanity anil gratitude that we assist the.suf
fern of Boston, and doed by urging prompt
and derided action toward that end. ltev.
Laird Collier, also spoko very feelingly of
the debt of gratitude which Chicago owe
to Boston, for her prompt response In our
time ol need. lie announced that the
American Express company had undertaken
to carry good free of charge.
Other gentlemen spoke In high terms of
the matter. Mr. Went. Dexter, president
of the relief society, Mated that ho was au
thorized to say that the society bad on hand
(1100,000 which it did not need, uml If the
meeting thought It best, the amount would
be Immediately sent to Boston, A rcsolu
tlon to that effect was unanimously adopted.
After this prhato subscriptions wsro called
for, and over s?IOO,000 was subscribed on the
pot, The printers' union donated $ JOO for
the Miflcrlng members of the cralt of the
bereaved city. I believe It safe to say that
before Thursday night over half a million
dollars will hnto been rained in this city
alone for the sufferers by the Boston tire.

The Isunday liquor question, so tar as the
Pope. It has been suggested since tbo
county election, that Mr. Pope, having
received a large vote and teen compli
mented by an uncontested election to the
office of State's Attorney, should retiro
from tho City Attorney's office and allow
somebody else to go in. The State's At
torney's offico is not worth one-third as
much as the City Attorney's office. It is
an office which Mr. Webb would not con
sent to take because its income is so small.
Mr. Pope was elected to it because be has
been a good and faithful City Attorney,
and it seems to ui, that it would be rather
a peculiar proceeding to put Mr. Pope into
h " poor-paying " office because ho had
b-ea faithful in a "good-pavine" office.

are becoming such universal favorites and
are making their way into so many house
holds, that it looks as if they were des
tined to cover the face of the lands as the
locusts of Egypt. Unlike them, however,
they are blessings instead of plegues, and
we wiah speed to the consummation.
The justico of the verdict rendered by
tho public years ago In favor of the Mexi
can Mustang Liniment must be apparent
to all who have used that famous prepara
tion or seen it used. Its healthy influ
ence is irresistible. The most obstinate
forms of neuralgic or rheumatic disease aro
totally cured by it, and that in an incon
ceivable short space of time. External in
juries or sores, whether of man or beast,
as well as all equine or human maladies
for which a liniment may be used, are
speedily remedied by its use. Kemember
it is not merely a palliative I ut an oradi
