AVo regret to observe that our friond,
tho editor of tho 'Sun,' has fallen a victim
to the intldel contagion prevulling in this
community. Wo weep whilo we inform
the public that wo fear he has hecocno a
convoit to tho teaching of Prof. Denton.
He yielded to the Influence of this weird
wUard of unbelief with reluctance, but he
yielded, and has becomo a most ardent fol
lower in tho footsteps of this man whose
path leads to no-wherel SoJ thorough
has becomo hit conversion that ho hat
actually induced Mr. Denton to challenge
tho wholn Christian world to jirovo that
any prophecy has beon fulfilled. Wo aro
Ah I but thoso aro evil days Into which

that thu whalo swallowed Jonah,but now,
alas f ho don't bollevo that pl?asant little
fiction at all, and Is almost convinced that
thoro never lived such a man as Jonah,
and tbat the ilih wis not a whale!
A Uttlo whilo ago Mr. Davit believed
tho entertaining romanco about Sampson

so in order that be might butcher a faw

ally bad no doubt that Joseph ran away
from Mrt. Potiphar; and, In fact, believed
all and wat almost saved. We rogret to
say, wo fear bo Is a doubter now tbat he
is (to use a pbrase wo lcarnod in our youth

FEW REMARKS HV
I'roin tha Cblcti'o Tluio, October 1.
In a wull considered and evidently am
cere article, the Thk Caiko JJullktix ex
presses the willingness of that portion of
Illinois known as "iigypt"' to grant tho
pitition of tbo state ot Chicago lor a bill
of divorcement from thi state ot Illinois,
The argument or Tin: Bullktin in sup
port ot the application of the petitioner is
a cogent one, it is n tact patent to every
one who has given any thought to tho Min
uet, Itiut Uook county is ulreudv, "to all
ntents aud purposes a uolilioul
body, distinct Irom the other
counties of the stale, needing legislation
not tu uiiy pariiuuiur adupieu to tno great
majority oi tno umer counties." All Its
political interests and governmental neces
sities aro peculiar to itself, or. at least,
peculiar to a comparatively smalt region
winch probably would comprise no more
than the three counties of Cook, Dupage,
and Lake. 'So manifest and conspicuous
this fact that the convention which
framed tho present constitution of Illi
nois could not avoid tho recognition of it
Upon tho proposition that tho legislature
should bo wholly deprived of tho most
mischiovous power ot special legislation,
there was not a dissenting volco
in the convention, Hut how
to get alow; with Cook countv.
with its great population and itt poculiur
interests 'this was the solo diliiculty
that seemed to stand in tho way ot that
most desirable constitutional reform.
Much logiiUtion that Cook county would
really need would be unnoceasarv in anv
other county, and legislation adaptod to
all other counties would bo entirely un
suited to Chicago. 'Tborofore, there was,
so to speak, a constitution for tho statu of
Chicago injected into tho belly of the con
stilutionot thu state of Illinois, and tho
Cook countv delegation In tbo L'oneral m.
sembly is a body practically soparato and
distinct in fact, if not in name, tho leg.
Islatureof tho sUto of Cock. The fact,
patent to ovary ono, shows an incipient

onlallon wlilen must, and will, sooner or
later, result ln the political severanco of

Tho 'Times' cannot agroo to Tim Hri

should comprise tlie entire northern half of
tho present statu ot Illinois , though most
of the reasons advanced in favor of thu
division of tho stato upon the fortieth
parallol, or thereabout, aru convincing
ones, j ne same reasons wmcu now tun-
port tbo proposition to erect the metropo
lis nnd its environs into an independent
state would still exist, only slightly modi
fied in degree. The sauio interests and
governmental needs peculiar to tbo local
Ity of the metropolis, and not at all ro
alizod by any other portion of the stato,
would render tho two virtually distinct
from each othor. In fact, the smalt nroa

but the experience of all count pL..
In which the experiment of free popular
government has beon tried proves that,

proposition amounting to an axiom that
