died at Sprlngdold latt Friday. Mr.

THE STATU PRINTING INVESTI
GATION. Tha Jonosboro 'Gazetto' and other pub
lic journal of thi state anert that tho
homo committeo on printing ha whlto
wuhod the Sprlagfleld printing ring.
We wero a memberof that committoo, und
therefore believe we hou!d roply to this
vary unjuit charge.
Wa challenge any person to point to ono
fact covered up by the committee. It re
ported all the fact; and tho recomroen
datlonaof, both tha majority and minor
ity, If they ire acted upon by tho state oill
cart, will save the people at leut $'20,000.
But, It I tald, the contract should bavo
bean declared void by tho general astern-
bly. Failure to mako thi recommenda
tion hat brought down upon tho majority
of tha commlttat the charge of whitewash
ing. Any person can call spirit from tho
vasty deep, but will they como ? The leg
lilature may rosolvo that all tho contracts
In existence are void, but will that rauku
them void T Tbo twanty-sovonth gaueml
assembly resolved, upon the recommends
tlon of an Investigating committeo, that a
contract obtained by a man named Chut
terton to furnish ppr to the stato, lmd
been obtained by fraud and was void. Hut
that resolution did not meko.tho contract
void. Tha supremo court compelled the
state to pay Cbattcrton the contract prlc.i
($10 60prream);forthepaper,ln tho face
of the fact thero was a bid for $7 60 p r
ream and that the award had been madu
privately by tho secretary of state when
the law required it to be made by the coin
milenerofpuMio printing attbo tirnti
the proposals were openod. Who could
expect the ptintlng committee to recom
mend, in the light of this decision, a re.o
lutien declaring tbe'eontract with theHtatn
prlntaroidt. Court, and not leglila
turet,are thetrlbunals to deoido tho valid
ity of contraoU.
Betide, even If the contract might
ave been made void by resolution, to bavo
made it void wmiid h. ..--.i...
All the work, under tUa contract except
tne printing of the journals of tho ad
Journed session and the mulnn W.
baen done, and this printing could not
have Wndone until next November If
tha contract with the printers had b-on
made void. The constitution isji the
printing shall ba lot to tha lowest blddur
in accordance with a law to be enacted by
"-"l MMmbly. There Is a law pro
Tiding for tha letting, after July, evory
two year of a contract to begin In Novem
ber, but there 1 no law providing for a
reletting. The, committee has supplied
thi omission in the law.
' I a now endeavor to tell our reader
of the very wicked acts the 'Journal' und
'Register1 men have committed. This, us
wt) wttWetand the autter, is the turn total
of their crime agtiast the state s At tho
time tha public printing was let in 1872, a
geatlemaa by tba nam of Major Rail
ache, wat business manager of the
Springfield Journal company, Th ma
jor is a mild mannered man. He tppoars
to enjoy the luxury of being mild man
nered. Ho looks mild, walks with a mild
stop, tpenk with a mild voice and stroko
his long but mild whiskers wilh ono of the
mildest of good tight hands. Reside do
ing mild, tho major is sharp. In fact, wo
hare liltlo ilnnlit 1m is sliaruor than ha it
mild, Although it is a notable fact that he
is milder tnan a aiay morning in Liower
Fgynt Ha was a modol business mana
ger for tho easy-going and honest but
sharp Journal company that has always
an eye single to itt own aggrandizement.
After this rocitttlon wo noed not say that
when Ruiiness Managor Ilallhache deter
mined to obtain the public printing ho
meant business. Without going into de
tails ho informed lils friends that ho In
tended to obtain tho contract. When he
volunteorod this information bo winked a
mild wink and smiled a mild laiile. To
bo brief, the business manager secured tho
printing, and in doing so spent $10,500 to
induco other parties not to b'd. Tho evi
dence showed that nearly all of the pro
posed bidders had not tho ability to
do tho work oven if the contract had been
awarded to them, nnd that they had pub
lirhed tholr intention to bid fur no other
purposo than to blackmail tho only two
printing offices in Springfield M that tlmo
prepared to do tha work for tho Slate.
Alter purchasing his competitors and
obtaining tho contract for the Journal
Registor combination, Major Rallhachoi
who has a temper If hois a mild man,
quarrolod with Col. D. L. Phillips, of the
lournal Company, and Indignantly but
very mildly loft his position of business
managor and becarno a senrchor nftor ro
vengb. Hating Phillips, who is a kind or
human jrab-appla sour and solllsh tho
major concluded that ho could injure that
gentloman most by taking trom him the
contract for tho public printing, and at
tue same tlmo do hiiniolf some possible
good by getting another opportunity, upon
r. ro-letting or tho work, to buy oil" the
boy again, or sell. Ho accordingly "lot
tho cat out or tho bag," instigated tho
printing investigation and toetiOod with
out a blush to bis own thamo. Tho nialor
is ono of tho ablest of witnosiei ; voice low,
manner mildly sorrowful, roblios tiromnt:
ho swear musically: indood. wo would
rather hoar tiim swear against Phillips, or
any otbor man bo dislikes, than iiston to
Nllsion's singing or to Robort Ingerioll
making a politlcnl spooch. During tho in
vestigation wo bavo listonod tor hours to
the swearing of Rallhachc, and always
rogrottod when ho loft tho stand. Judge
Uradwoll was oatr&ncod. Ho could not
get enough of tho major, and whonovor
any olhor follow dared to swear anything
that had n tendency to explain the con
duct of. tho printors lie would instantly
placo Uailbacho on tbo stand to contra
dict tho printors' wllnois, and whllo tho
major proceeded mildly and musically to
perform his duty In this regard
tne Judgo would fairly hang upon
"the music of his alnmmnt llni
urangor would closo lils eyes
in excess of pleasure, f.eltze
arouso himsolf to attention. and
Rarkley, Thornton. Smith and the other
mornbors of tho committoo look moro than
wo can cxprods.
And this is tho whole' of! it: ilaior
Railhacho bought ou" competition nnd so-
curod tho contract for tho printing to tho
Mournal-lteglslor' men, and thon told on
his confederates. In ovorv other nartlcu.
lar tho printers have acted in an unobjoc
tlonalilo manner in so far at tho contract
for printing Is concornod. Tho chan'o
for pross work wore dirocted to bo mado
by tho atato ofUcers who aro
authorized to construo tho law
and tho contract. Wo are of
tho opinion tho construction glvon to tho
law la not tho right construction, but tho
law Is a looso ono, and thoro is ovory
reason to bollove that tho officer aetmt
conscientiously. Rut, no matter, no ono
can blame tho printors for rocelvlng what
tho stato otilcor insistod they must take.
Tho wholo matter may bo thus statod:
1. Thetradinc man of tho 'Journal .'.Ma
jor uaiiuaciii', or bis own volition, bought
oil' competition, and obtained tho printing
for tho 'Journal' nnd tho 'Rogittor.' tie
then quarrolod with the heavy stockholder
of tho 'journal' and lost his situation,
whoroupon ho took advantage of his own
wroni, oxposod his passivo confudoratet,
and ondoavorod to injure them in tholr
pur.cn. Tho result of tho oxposuro is a
law that will ond Major Uallhache, "or
any other man," to tho ponltontiary,
if ho should again oxerclso hi ability ns
a buyor of bidders.
I ho contractors bid twonly.live
cents for ono hundred impressions of book
and patnphlot presswork. Thoy claimed
that eight page constituted a form of
such work. They proved that thov in.
tended to bid for eight pages, and that
precedent in bpringueld mado night pngos
a form. Tho stuto officer decided In ac
cordance with tho claim of tho printers.
rho committeo docldod that whon not
otherwise stipulated slxtoon pagos consti
tuted a form, and that settlement should
be mido on that basis. Tho contequonce
of this dlicuiiion was that tho bill re
ported by tho Committeo and enacted into
a law makes ilxtoori pages of this kind of
work a form.
3. Tho contractors bid twonty-ilv
cents fur twonty-flvo impressions of work
of the ilfth class. Tho commiiiionors of
public printing awarded them tbo con
tract at those llgures. The committoe de
cidod that this was lour times moro than
tho law allowed. Tho consequent has
been that this matter has been made dell
nito, and the prlntor cannot again obtain
moro than twenty-live cents for each ono
bundrod Impressions of this kind of pross
4. Many other ''loaks" wore dUcovored
in tho Investigation. They have all been
ttopped plugged, ao that no moro uf the
people's money can bo waited in this wny
t. The attorney general has been In
structed to commeuco action, if ho believes
tuch action can bo madoetfectual, to make
the contract void and rocovor from the
printors any money thoy may have oh-
talned from the State moro than tho law
authorized them to receive. '
If these are not gotd r jtulls of tho 1c
vettlgelton wa art very much mistaken.

so planted two thousand poach troea. A.

stancy with which all these gentleman
push their orcharding business is an evi

Uarwood, the Anna correspondent ot
tho 'Gazette,' has discovered an "idol" or
rather Mr. Porrino, of Anna, has made
tho discovery. It was found in a mound
"near tho gravel road, a low hundred
yards from tho grading, closo to tho Roed
farm." Tho imago is thus described :
It is of solid stone, webhine furtv
pounds, skilfully sculptured to rcsomblo
tho head. nock, shoulders, nnd tho outlines
ot limb of a man. Tho leg can bo
traced as if lie ltd closo aguinst tho body.
The arms rent onu upon each knoo and an
arm can be seen in outllno (oxcept tho
wrists, which aro prorninont) oxtoral to
each log the lore arm being flexod
against tho sido. The image a it aits is
thirteen inches high, and if tho logs woro
oxtondod it would measure, standing, thirty-six
Inches. Thoro i a porrect symme
try of contour. Tho features are woll
formed and exprecsivo of thoughtful wis
dom. In profile they rcsemblo tho por
traits of tho sphynx which aro so familiar
in connection with plcturos of tho pyra
mids. Tba back of the hoad is nearly list,
at least tha rear third of tho hoad as na
ture shapes it being absent. A coronal in
imitation of braided hair hnlf onclrcles tho
hoad, terminating at each temple. Tho
neck li short and thick sot, measuring fif
teen inches in circuraforonco, but woli
formed and exhibiting an accuracy of do
tail that proves tho sculptor to havo bocn
a close copyist or a good anatomist. The
geological character ot tho stono is ditl'er
ant from anything known to this stato.
Its genoral color is u dull wbito. Tho
back part is clouded and veined llko Ten
nostoo marble, but the front roeemblos
auartz in'appoaranco. To tho eyo it looks
ko innumerable crystals with intersticos
and sharp angles, nnd givos ono tho im
