Statu by tho expulsion therefrom or

the corruptionist, tbo outcry is raised
that Crotier was n confident of Catdwoll,
is at guilty of corruption, and unfit to to
a member of congress.
Tna 'Stato Journal' says this paper has
no doubt whatever tbat,tbe present cornpli
cation will result In war with Spain. Wo
aid that appearances led us to beliovo that
there would be war, but wo liaro not at
any time, and aro not now, sum that tho
threatened war will come. "We have
hoped and ttill hopo, the difficulties may
be settled in peaca and in a manner soils
factory to our national honor nnd not do
aUuctiroof tbe republic of Spain. That
den. brant desires war wo do not doutt,
and that tho Republican party would reap
great advantago from a conllict at arms,
wo have overy reason to beliur. but
thore aro considerations that may induco
tbe administration to adopt a pacific pol
icy, and even lead it into a aacritlco of
the dignity of tho American poopio.
TUB Italian parliament has adopted, by
a unanimous roto, n resolution rccon.
msndingthe insortion of tbo principlo of
arbitration in all tuturo treaties between
Italy and foreign powori. This is a wiso
resolution, suggested by tho issuo of tbo
Geneva arbitration. Our govornmont is
cnlitlod to tho credit of tho inauguration
uf this method of settling; disputes bo
twecn nations a method which, lot it
prayerfully bo hopod by all bumano poopio,
may bocomo goneral among all nations of
the world. Its adoption will avert wars,
and do mora than anything boshJos to in
augurato tbo thousand years of peaco.
Just at this moment our own government
ii considering the ad visibility of discard
ing its own plan for tho settlement of dif
Acuities with other nations. It has u mis
understanding with a weak nation, itnd
may bo lod, cither by its own rashnon or
the itubbornncss of Spain, todiscArd ar
bitration and again tako up tho swuri.

Tiierk is no man in Southern lllinoU
better deserving tho honor of having his
namo on a locomotivo than tho sago of
lipe water. Uberly roprosonts tho pro
gressive clement in politics, as tho loco
motive does in mechanics, and will worth
ily fill any plica to which ho aspires, ovon
a seat in congress. State ltegistor.
Wo blush as wo publish notices llho tho
above, and aro inclined to tho belief that
wo should rctiro from tho editorship and
put our friend Judgo Greon or Judge
Allen in our place to publish such notices
for us. We know oithor of thoio gentlo
icon would do so with ploasuro. llo
would romomber how, when tho oJilon
throughout tho country named him for
the several offices within tbo gift of tho
poopio of tho slate, wo novor fulled to pro
duce tbe "notice'' in these columns for thu
edification of our reader., who were al
ways, as a matter of coursn, his friends ,
and remembering this, he would return
the compliment. This would savo our
blushes, and would dolight cither of the
judges, which is a consideration that Ims
almost inducod us to rotiro from the
tripod.
ilOBi IIaurkll says in his Us', (it
ztto :
"We happen to know that soruo of "thu
uiu uujs woo run mo maenino' aro vorv
kindly disposed, and would lnd Mr.
Oberly, In the event of his candidacy, an
earnost and effoctivo support. They
know (and during tho canvass everybody
else would And out) that ho (Oberly) it
devilish good fellow one of tho but
lumpers in the state, and that ho stand,
about square on thi prominent ques
tions that will bo put in mun
next election. A f.iw "kinks'
straightened in bis Democracy and r1t.
Is tbo Democrat that will not semi his
castor sky-craping for John 11. Uberly?
oucn jtepuoitcans as do not autniro him
fear him ; and, when it comes to Orsn-
ferism, no hand in Kgypt is hornier; no
eai fuller of hay-seod. Tho truth is the
way is almost clear, and if Oborly don't
walkover it to a seat In Cdiutms. u
shall always think that, liko Capt. Ham
bleton's grandfather, "ho lost a splendid
opportunity."
Tbo unklndest cut in the ahovo is the
reference to the kinks in our Democracy
which Is of the best articlo In this
part of the political vineyard. AVe
knew.'no variableness or shadow of turning
la our devotion to tbo principles of Dsm
ocracy as defined by tbe Fathers of the
republic; but we will not be dragged, in
tba naas of tbe Damocratlc party, into
the) advocacy of political issues long since
dead, and we do, whatever the " old boys "
may think of it, believe tbat tbe war cre
ated new conditions In American society
ver party is bound to recognize; and
we bar laid, and do say now, tbat tbe
Deaaocratla parly, as a national organiz

must bo willing to join hands with the
representatives of olhor shades of polit
ical differences In this country, to crush
out corruption and monopoly. To do this
it must send away tho old Icadors who aro
tainted, nnd Imitalo tho examplo of tho
Democrats of Wisconsin, lown and Kan

not what namo is inscribed upon tho ban
nor that floats nbovo us, If tho moil who
fight In tho ranks with us doslro tho
Mtno results and tbo men who
command us aro not traitors to
the cause. But our position on tho polit
ical questions of tho dny makes no dilTer
enco Insofar as tho suggestion that we
might bo a candidato for congress is con
corned. Wo have not thought of such a
candidacy, and would not yield our opin
ions in roforenco to political Issues to so
cure a soat In tho sonato. Our Domocracy
Is satisfactory to ourself; it is, wo are
convinced, tbat of tho majority of tho
party,no matter what tho lenders may
say, and we don't care who believes it is
too kinky to be available. Thoro nro
many nnlMSopublicans in this district,
from among whom n much stronger candi

Judgo Crawford would swoop thu platter

NOTED PUOPIIEOV OF JESUS
CIIJIIST IN i'ULFIIil.MENT.
"Jerusalcin fball ho trodden dawn of the
Ucntilm until the times of thu Gentile l.e
rultitlud." l.uke, chanter verse 21.
Upwards of 1,800 years ago thh
vory significant, Jangungo was ut
tered by tbo adorablo and adored Christ.
Is it true or folso? Let us too:
1. What is monnt by Jerusalem being
troddon down by tho Gentiles ? Cor-
talnly its conquest by tho Romans under
command of Titus tho Human ccnor&i
and emperor; from thut tlmo It has ro
mainod in tho hands of tho (ientllcs up to
this day.
2, What aro wo to understand to bo
tho moaning of tho lattor rlaiuo of tbo
prophecy "until tho times of tho Oontilcs
bo fulfilled 7" Tho preaching of tho gos
pel to nil nations must tako place beforo
tho downtrodden condition of tho Jews
will end and novor boforn. Itopentanco
and remission of sins should bo preached
in His namo (Christ) among nil nations,
bozinninc t Jerusalem. Eukc, chniitor
2i, verso -17. Tho above is what I under
stand to bo tho unvarnished moaning of
tho prophecy with minor considerations
which might be given. It will bo neces
sary hero to lay that Jorusalom was cap
tured by tho Romans in tho seventieth
yar ot tiu Christian era and forty years
after the ascension of Christ.
3. Mas thoro been any opposition upon
tin part of human ngoncy to prevent tho
fulfillment of this prophecy 7 It will bo
rotnemborcd that Julian, tho apostato,
(called so bocauso ho backslid from tho
Christain religion) n Roman nmporiorwho
atcended tho throno ol his imperial great
ncss in tho year of tho Christian era SC.
K vory effort was put forth by him nnd his
unworthy followers to rondor this proph
ecy a fnlshood by attempting to rebuild
Jerusalam, tbo temple, nnd to reinstate tbo
Jows in their once hnnorablo and anclont
city, llo gave tho work into tho hands of
Alypius with Immense sums of money to
superintend and hasten thu work. Aly
plus set about it in the most
vigorous sonso. Materials of ovory
kind wcro provided at tho cmpo
ror's cxpenre. So groat was tho nntbusj.
aim of tin Israelites lint their women
took part in tho work anil in th laps of
their garmonls carried off tho earth which
covered the ruins of tho old temple.
'i Did the imperial groatness of
Koine succeed In subverting thu truth und
fulfillment of this prophecy? Llow linpo
tant are the gicntost things of earth, when
in inad.blindneis they butt up against tho
xruth of thu great (J0J. Sudden earth
quakes and terrible whirlwinds swept tho
workmen away Hko chat!, and horriblo
balls of firo bursting forth from tho uround
rendered tho place inaccessible to tho li-
borers , their tools were consumed by the
names anil numbers of thorn wore des
troyod.
. Mlial evidence bava we for nil this
outsido of tho ssyings ef Jesus 7 We
havo in the first place, tho testimony nf
me menus or. Julian anil the enemies of
Christianity. Ammianus Marcellinus
me iriena ana companion-ln.arms of
tho omporor, says It was slopped by u
psrnutural roitilln. Zoruch Davis, a Jow
confemd thut Julian was dlvlnltus im
peditus hindorod by (lod. A mom? tho
friends of Christ, who state the truth nf
this matNr, nro St. Ainbrosoand ltuilinus
who lived and flourished at tin vory tlmo
wtion tliis transpired. Many moro on
now sides migbt be given. Slnco that
tlmo no Jew has nver triod to rebuild or
occupy Jerusalem in tbo sonso of Julian
and his purpose, Tho application corats
to this: 1st Christ Is u true prophet. 3d
fho prophecy has ben completely ful
Wlcd for inoro than 1800 years. 3rd Its
completion will ha porfoctcd whan the
" times of tho Oontllcs shall bo fulfilled."
So tho prophecy will bo sustained nnd
Christ and tho lliblo, will bo eternally
honored, In splto of all tho Ashdod lan
guages than enn bo brought ngainst tho
lliblo. .

JOHN h IiKI.ANO,
chief clerk of tho Interior department,
resigned to-tlay, on account of ill-heulth.
Thii was not unexpected. During tho

necessary, In order to obtain permanent

Orders havo been given to recruit tho
mariuo corps up to the full standard pro

circles that Admiral l'orlor will command
tho West Judisn tquadron, but thoro is
no oHicial knowledge of this matter.
As it is not customary for tho irovern-
nient to publicly mako known, uiileda by
compoteut authority, tho progress of ne
gotiations. It can therefore bo trnld that
tho statements regarding an alleged agree
ment between Spaiu and thu United
States is premature. It is known that
our govenment Mas protested to mat or
Spain against tho seizure of tho Virgin-
us, wutlo tho HvIiil' Amorican Hair und

tons cuplurud, iieVwlVbslttiidinj; Dm cllurU

only to international law but ngainst tho
tho laws which should exist among civil

would not certainly include families of

Spain has beforo now delivered captives of
Amuricun vessels through tho interven

DECISION MK.viinmii.
OniCAoo, Novomhcr 16. Judgo Tij
toti, of tho MuEoan county circuit court,
rendered a decision yesterday In tho cuso
brought ngainst tho directors of tlio 01'
man, Clinton and Springfield railroad,
charging them with gross mlsmanagomont
of tho company's allalrs. and praying for
tho nppolnmcnt of rcceirois. It'nppenrs
from tho e vhlonco ns suinod up by tho
Judge that tho actual cost of constructing
and equipping thu road wnt about a mil
lion and a hair, A'lillo tho
Mor.OAH IM1T.1VEUE.M COMI'AXT
rotelvod for rendering this sorvlco about
four millions. Tho Morgan Improve
ment company was Incsrporatod In Penn
sylvania, May 0,1870, nnd so far us tho
evidence in this caio discloses, It was or
ganixed for tho solo purposo of conttruc
ting this road. It had n cnpitul of half
a million divided in ton sharos of o0,000
eaoh. Fourteen days after its Incorpora
tion it entered into a contract with tlio
an.M,i.v, clinton .ii erni.vomjLP it. .
The directors and tho presiJcnt of tho
rood, who had boen principally concerned
in letting tho contract to tho Improvement
company, aro shown to have boon let Into
its enormous profits for a mores nominal
consideration. It is also alleged against
the road officers thut tliny made n ruinous
contract for tho road with tho
HAr.ct.Ar coai. cojirA.w,
of which thoy owned a threo qurter Inter
est; that they uiudu an unlawlul lenso of
tbo road to the Pennsylvania compnny,
and thnl In other respects they were guilty
uf n breach of trust of tbo court; recapit
ulations of thu grievances nnd discusses
at length tho English nnd American law
concerning the circumstances undor which
tho trust property will bo taken out of tho
handiiof tho trustees who nro mismanaging
and fraudulently applying tho trust funds.
The modern doctrine nnd theory of Illin
ois law, is that railroads nro public high
ways, creatod by tho soveroign power of
tho state, and thut tho corporation is au
thorized through its board of directors to
construct, equip ami oporato tho samo as
long as such directors shall remain truo
to tho trust conferred upon iliom by law;
thntthty nro so far public corporations,
and that at thu timo of tbo con
struction of this road, and at tho adoption
of tho presont constitution of Illinois
In May, tho proporty could by rt vote of
tho county, town or city not only bo con
verted into tho capital stock of the rail
road, against my will, but by a like voto I
could bu compelled to donate my property
to tlio capital stock of a railroad com
pany and tbat tin proporty of tho corpo
ration is a trust fund in tin hands of tho
board of dirictors Townships that havo
bocomo parties to th h proceeding did not
donato their bonds voted to tho company,
but on tlio contrary, subscribed to its cap
ital stock for which thoy i.-suod their
bonds,dollar for dollnr.nnd no moro roason
is shown by this ptoof why tho capital
BM'C OS lull rMlroud com.ny
worth par value of tho cost of
constructing and equipping tlio road did
not cost to excocl f I, COO,00?, nud tho
road has paid tho running oxponses and
interest on $-',000,000 sinco its completion.
With tho bonds voted along the lino and
a loan of $1,000,000 upon that road, which
ought to and would havo constructed and
equipped tlio road ir tlio stock should bo
worth par to-day. I assumo this fact upon
tho ovidonoo in this record that tho Penn
sylvania company could oporato, paying
interest on tbo tvJ.000,000 flrit mortgage
bonds and tho current expenses of the
road, nnd leuvo n nirplus to apply in tho
51.000,000 Incntno lamds intended to bo
issued in lieu of tho $1,000,000 socond
mortgage bonds, now in tho hands of
Thomas A. Scott. .If.ljtMs truo that the
stock of thi railroaouompany ought
to bo worth dollar for dollar, wo
aro led to inquire whothcr it is proper to
so manage sucu a trust company's proporty
that thu stock should become substantially
worthless and incumbered with three mil
lions of debt. Tho
courANv'a hooks
do not show tho cost of equipment nor do
tlio Uotendents deny tno prnor or tlio com
plaints ns to tho cost. Anothor thing
which is npparont from tho proofs is thut
tbo board ot directors nro controllod bv
