An atmo-ph(!re impregnated Willi ll.e
seeds of malaria, is rendered harmless by
the timely ns of llostetter's Stomach
Hitters; aril 11 a resort to his benign pro
tective agent has unwiely been ilclerrwl
until the fever (its have developed, it will
hnye the effect of cheeking them and pre
venting their return. This statement is
corroborated by thousands who have
tried this medicine for lever and ague
and bilious remittent fever, besides af
(cetions ol the stomach, liver ami bowels
peculiarly rife in malarious localities.
Throughout the West, liuleul In every
nnrr nl "inrienn continent where
malaria prevails, it is the accepted speci
fic. Nor Is the area of Its usefulness cir
cumscribed by the limits of the United
States, since It is widely used in South
America. Mexico, Australia, and else
where. Worth lit Welti lit in t.olil.
I'ndotibtedly the greatest modern dis
covery in medicine is Dal.'o.sta's 1 Judi
cal Turn for dyspepsia, sick hendaehe,
sour stomach, costiveness, biliousnecs,
loss of appetite, distress after eating, and
all disorders caused by indigestion or a
deranged liver. Its results are astonish
ing, and sure relict is guaranteed in
every eao where it Is fitithiully used. It
tones up the stomach, regulates the
liver, restores the natural appetite,
strengthens the delicate and expels all
morbid humors Irom the system. Ty
phoid and bilous fever might, in almost
every ease, be prevented by Its timely
use. Trial size 25 cents. A very few
doses will relieve, and a little- persever
ance euro you. Sold by Barclay Urns.
Also agents for Prof. Tarker's l'leas-

The County Commissioners-Reduction
cf Salariei-A Slight Unpleasantness
Between the Sheriff and the County
The county commissioners adjourned
yesterday alternoon after 1 fins in -a-. .don
sine; Mond iy last. During the session
the board transacted an unusually large
amount of business, Commis.-iotier
Wilson, owing to sickness, was unable
to be present a part of the time. The
ijfESTIOX OK SaT.AIUKS
I if county ofliecra to be elected this fall
was considered at this session of
the board, and a reduction of nearly all
salaries determined upon. The salary of
county judge was reduced Irom SI, 000
10 5720,; ot county clerk Irom fl,C0O
to Tl,2tm, and t,,r clerk
hire from , 1,000 to $75
The number of days lor which
the county superintendent of schools
will be allowed to draw pay was reduced
from i ne hundred to forty, which at lour
dollars per day, reduces the salary Irom
lour hundred to one hundred and sixty
dollars per annum.

For moatlis pat tin unpleasantness,"
;i "misuude poinding," or a slight "dif
ference ot opinion," or something of that
sort has existed between Sheriff Suttp
and County Treasurer Ilely. At all
events the treasurer and sherifl do not
get along well, and even In their official
relations ail is not lovely and the
"gooso is not allittulinal. ' We
do not pretend to understand the
true inwardness of tho disagreement be
tween these gentlemen. AH wo know
is that they are at tho outs at logger
heads, at dagger's, points ready to
jump at each others' throats, und all that
sort of thing, or some thitijj else.; The
sherifl declares Hint be desired' t: turn
over to Treasurer Huly tlie rtVonuoVol-
lectcd by him. and that Mr. Ilely refused
to receive it, but why he refused to r
ceivc it the sherifl does not say.

the county cuinmii-u!oncr3 nml made a
settlement with them, instead ol through
the couniy tn asdrer, a-i Mr. Ilely clainus
the law directs. The commissioners re
ceived f.om tho sherifl nearly seven
thousand dollars In county orders, all of
which, it U said, were then and there
destroyed by burolnff.
This action ot the board Mr. Ilely de
clares was uuWnrreuted and Illegal, as
the orders ahobld bave passed through his
hands In order to have been compared
and cancelled. Ilely believe no record
of the numbers ol the orders destroyed
wis made by the commissioners, wk u
the settlement was made, and as a con--ciUi
no: it w ill be Impossible in the
future to tell within seven thousand
dolh.r-- of how many orders areoutstand
tag. Thus ihe matter stands. 'Altogether
he racket, between the sherifl arid treas
urer i. a lively one, and the end is not
half reached. It is perhaps proper to
state lu re that Commissioner Wilson,
owing to .Iekuess, was not present w hen
this settlement between the hoard and
the) menfl was made.

A Crm-iiiondoat Wbo Think It Should
Bo Adot-ti-a, and Siteatha Statuta to
Prove In it tii-i Coun-al Has the Power
To I ' I lit'ir of tin-11' '..i lis :
liiloiis nyt generally seem to be un
derstood whether the city council has
the power to regulate the rates ol wharf
age or not; and lor the hem lit ol any
who may be ik doubt, please allow me to
place before your many readers a portion
of section one, article live, chapter
twenty-four, of the Revised StnMej of
the State of Illinois, whi h reads as fol
I'lie city council in chic, and prcsi-
t t and the board of trustees in villages,
sh ill i bave the following powers
Thirty-third To regulate and control
theu-eof public and private landing
places,' w harves, docks aud )ew.
I birty-lourth 1 o control and regu
late the anchorage, moorage and bind
ing ol all water crafts and their cargoes
w ahiu the jurisdiction of the corpora
tion. " 1 hirty.lhtth To license, regulate and
prohibit wbariboats, tugs and. other
boats used about tho harbor, or within
"Thirty-sixth To fix the rate of wharf
age and dockage."'
That our city fathers will not over
reach their powers should th'-y pass the
ordinance introduced by Alderman
Paticr, will. I think, be clearly perceived
by all who will take the trouble to
earelully read the above quotation trom
the revised statutes ol thi state; but It
is often the case that public sentiment
must be aroused to sustain tho law
before it can be carried into effect. And
have we not as citizens of this city been
silent too long o:i this question of vital
intcre-t to all of our business
men. 'That exorbitant amounts bave
been charged; and collected from vessels
landing here; that the water tront where
vessels are daily landing lias not been
kept in good repali ; that it is almost im-pa-s.ible
lor teams with heavy loads,
that vessels have been charged large
nw. for simply landing or lying at the
bank where no grading has been done
or repairs of any kind been made, are
facts that can be attested by at least two
thirds ot our business men.
If one man now has the power to tax
steamers from ten to fifty dollars lor
landing here, what may hinder him at
-ome future time from taxing tnem two
or three hundred dollars, and thus, fora
time at least, stop all shipments by river?
Is it safe for this city to allow one per
son to control the amount ol wharfage
fees to be paid by steamers landing here,
when the income, irom the same goes
Into his own pocket?
If our aldermen have not the mind or
courage to vote yes in regard to the pro
posed ordinance, let those who elected
these men to the places of trust and
honorj which they now occupy see to It
that tbey are Iniormed that the people of
this city do not want river business
driven trom ilieui, and our water front
kept iu an almo.t impassable condition
for the simple purpose ot allowing one
inati to increase in relies.
Should we not foster aud carefully
guard all the interests ot the steamboat
men of our two great rivers. Should
they not leel that our city is their friend,
i'or, is it not a fact that if this city ever
becomes of any great importance it
must be on account ol its river facilities,
l or Kent.
