to becomo a candidate for congress in the
Kentucky district opposito this portion of
God's country in Illinois. Tho Cclonel
has a wcskncii that invariably Induces
him to yield to calls of this kind, nnd he
will doubtless respond afSrmatlvely if
blusblngly t tho solicitation of tboie of
bis sdtnlrers who wish to place him In the
congressional seat of Mr. Crmaland, the
honest grabbor of back pay. Mr. Turner
is an able contletntn, n good stump orator
and a decidedly accomplished electioneer.
Mound City is not pleased with the
way the United States government is run
alng tho navy yard at that place, nnd the
council of tho town hai whcruaied and re
solved. Whereas, (lays tho council), the
city loasod to tho UnlUd StUei tho R&w
ling's reservation to be uo.l for orUinanco
purposes, said rciervatlon to revert upon
failuro of the government to uto It for such
purposes; nnd whereas, thoro hat been a
failure to so use it, resolved, that Hon
Iiaae Clements lo instructed to rcquoit
the Unltod States to return to Mound City
tho reservation. Tbo point Is well taken.
The government should bo compelled to

IVi aro lc theory a herd money man,

Inflation of the currency with philosophy.
Greenbacks and national bank currency

the political economlits say ro, and they
ought to know. All experience has proven
this assertion to bo true, and txporlonce

it appears to ut to bo n truth, that our pre

Haukkll's 'Gazette' ;is of the opinion
that the complaints of our people con
cerning tho levy of school tax for the
present year have grown out of tho fact
that the sum hiked for Is large; but, is
the Gazette' says, the public have no
means f knowing whether tho sum teked
for is excesslvo or not. And this is ns it
bould not bo. Tbo boards of education
in our stato handle the pooplo's money
and expend It as they please, and the peo
ple cannot without great trouble ascertain
for what it bai been disbursed. Hundreds
of thousands of dollars aro spent by

l'AIGN. (i.'V. Huvurldge, who mnkos m t ex
cellent speeches, hn been lecturing tho
b'lard of suporvhoiii of Champaign county,
because it hns soon proper to do'.ormino
that the lilleroit upon $ 100,000 of bonds
lijtu d by that county to endow the Indus
trial University, shall not bo paid. Th'i
governor declares tbo supcrviior to bo re
pudialon,' r.nd asierts that it would Lo ns
liihonoraLlo in Chimpalgn county to u
fuia to pay tho interest
and principal of thoso
bonds it wai in tho state of Missis
sippi lo repudlats her bonds us it would
be in tho United .States government to
r udlnte its bonds.
Wo bnve great respect for tbo opinion
of tho governor, but wo do not too tl.ti
rnMtt-r ni ho does. If tho government ol
the United Stf.tee should repudiate, there
Is no powur that could compel it l pay,
oven if fio claims ngtinst It woro just;
and to of a stato goTorninent; but n
county stauda in altogether n different re
lation to its creditors. If tboy imvo Just
claims agaliiht tho county, tho courts will
compel tho county to pay to tho last cent;
if tho claims uru not just, the county
ought not to pay one cent.
, wo undi.ritAiid tho 'nailer, the hoard
of supervisors of Champaign county deny
thit tho county Is legally bound to pay
cither tho principal or tho interest of tho
bonds issued to endow tho Industrial L di
versity. Tho hoard is thcroforo properly
anxious to havo th: courts decide tbo ques
tion. Tho governor has no doubt that tho
county ran bo compelled by nctlon of tbo
courts to tako enru of tho bonds ; but, bo
says, the county Is morally hound to tako
care of them oven If tho lav; should not be
upi-n tho riln of tho university.
Wo are of iho opinion that tho county Ii
neither legally nor morally under any
obligation te pay thoio bonds. They were
obtained from the county ns the bonds of
Carbondalo and of Anna nnd of olhor
places, wuro procured by persuading thu
county to brlbo tho legislature
ilul tho governor threatens. '-If you
do not pay tho mtorcst on these bonds, tho
stute will ho compelled to endow tho uni
versity, Bnd it it not likely it will ho loca
ted in your county," says bit excellency.
The threat will not frighten Champaign,
and if it has any pluck at all it will
press right on ns It ii now going, and pay
itiu interest on the bonds if it mutt.

writes a follows: In my last I gavo you
