It is now certain that Kobt. T. Lin

are to be appointed railroad commission
ers. The name of tho two last have long
been decided upon, and last nlgm Uov

if he would accept. An affirmative reply
was received to-day, and the appoint
ments are made out ana would nave Deeu
sent into the senate to-day but it was
thought better to wait until the senate is
more nearly full. The opinion about
town is that Cullom has made good se
lections lor this board, which Is psrnaps
tbe most difficult to till ot any. 1 he ex
tent of Mr. Lincoln s qualifications as a
lawver are well known. Billy Smith is

while Oberly, tne minority mcmuer, nas

has done as well as possible.

will ba conveyed to Cairo, where they re-
main until Friday, returning thto by a

combines business and pleasure. The

companies the party to Cairo and hack."
Tbe party referred to arrived In the city
on Wednesday evening, and spent the
following day In visiting the ethoolt and
other places of Interest. They were
highly pleased with the treatment re
ceived here, and pronounced the manage

Bitters. The record of its triumphs over
disease Is to be traced in the writtto ac

the evidence of its popularity is to be
found In tbe vast and arrowing demand

its unparalleled success are cogent ones.
The accumulated evidence of nearly
thirty years shows that It is a eertain

Its surest preventive ; that it eradicates
