"Tint Smith-O'H ien combination was the
worst piece ot blank blankety idiocy id the
political history of Sprin field," said he. "It
was a saloon ticket; the candidate for mar
shal is engaged actively in the saloon busi
ness. Now look I Ilere we were pledged to
the saloon interest, and to making the city
government the creature of the siloon inter
ests. The saloonists were rawing big manev
to help buy themselves, through their candi
dates, into pjwer. Is it any wonder the peo
ple rose in alarm against such a spectacle and
Toted solidly against it 7 Xow how foolish all
this was. Don't you see that no matter what
candidate we had bad, the saloon element
would hare supported it anyhow, since, if
they failed to vote the Democratic ticket,
where would they have gone? Not to tl.e Re
publican party surely, and not more
than nine-tenths of tbem to the Pro
hibition party, at least. So you '..see we
offered the ridiculous spectacle of catering
to those who were ours already, instead of
trying to run those who were doubtful.
Then look at the moral effect of Zimmeiman
withdrawing from the ticket. It not only
took the best man off the ticket, but it also
showed that l.e would not allow his name on
neb a ticket, and thus cave sure presage ot
coming defeat. This le't us with a b'ank
for Solici'or. With a good Civil Seirice Re
form Den ocratic candidate, ot the Cleveland
type, we would have won. As it was, we
had cot only no inducement to tempt the
Independent R?l ublican viter from his party,
but we succeeded in thoroughly disgusting
the better element in our own pirty with our
nominations. No wonder there wis such a
clean sweep. Then ourjboodle failed to ac
complish much. The fact is. I know a num
. ber of men, bn:h white and colored, who
thankfully accepted all contributions from'
the boodle fund, but when it came to voting.
they voted the straight Republican ticktt.

It is stated that five Prohibition ballots
cast in the Fifth ward last Monday had the
name of Kissell scratched out for Marshal and
that of O'Brien subititnted and also other
trades; similar ins'ances are reported from
every ward in the city. The intelligent
observer is constraint d to wonder whether
the votes were cast by Democrats, desirous of
mixing their whiskey with water, or by Pro

It is rumored ibat a sweeping change will
be made in the music at the Episcopal church,
commencing May 1st. The choir will be dis

The organist will be Miss Carr. Mr. Frank

will eater on other engagements.
A human chromo rejoicing in the appella

that halt his collections wete to be devoted to

on this city this afternoon if their arrange

Dayton they were so noisy am inde'atigable
that the people mublied them, chased one of
their detachmerts into the hall nhere they
had been holdiog their meetings, and held
tbem prisoners some little time, while blood
shed was immineut. Lively times may con
sequently be anticipated in Springfield.
"Shooting matches by telegraph are getting
to be quite a feature in shootiDg circles," said
a member ot the Gun Club the other day.
"The Sp-ingfield tlub has already shot
matches with several clubs by ttleerapb. We
defeated the Minneapolis club in that way the
other day. The system is very successful and
saves great expense By use of the telegraph
the clubl ate in as close connection with each
other as it shooting on the sane groun-is.
The tesult ot each round can be sent as soon
as shot, or else the final re-ult sent. Tele
graphing the result of each round is of couite
more exciting where the telegraph ott-ce is
near enough to make it practicable. Chance
for tall lying? Certainly there i it either

but there is the highest honor i-bjut such
affairs in all resectable clubs, and no cheating

"How are Clark county and Springfield
leprestnted in regard to Government em
ployes?" I asked a gentleman well posted in
Washington politics last week.
"There are not a great number of appoint
ments from here," was the reply. "Let me
see. Mr. Joeph Miller holds a clerkship in
tbe Treasury. He wis the young man who
had bis arm, unfortunately, blown off by a
cannon in ttis city some years ago. Mr.
Wilkinson, a brother-in-law of Mr. George
Speocv, holds a position in the First Comp
troller's office. Mr. J. Guilford White
held a position in the Auditor's
office of the District of Columbia
bu' reslened last week, and returned to this
city to rrsume his law practice. Si. Mast
holds a position ,ou the Capitol police force.
He was appointed by tbe sergeaot-at-arms ot
tbe House, and after that became n Demo
cratic body he was retained by the sergeant-at-arms
of the Senate. Mr. Maxwell, of this
county, holds a position iu tbe Indian bureau.
Mr. Clarence Williams, son of 0. B. Will
iams, of th;s city, was appointed by General
Keller to a cadetship in the naval academy at
Annapolis. He has since graduated, and is
now a second lieutenant in the navy, and is
absent on a cruise' Two young men named
Sattus also bold clerical positions in some of
the'departments at Washington. Mr. John
Bea'd, of Enor, recently deceased, held a

pointed by Clark county influence."
Same years ago Messrs. Pringle aud John

J. II. Rodgcrs and Mr. Richard Rcdgers
bought up twenty-one sections of land
in one of tbe most favorable parts ot Kan

fortunate and tbe land has almost srxtupled
in value. ..Last year a heavy offer by an En
glish syndicate to buy up tbe whole tract was
refused. The owners ate having.a $6,000
bridge erected over the Arkansas river, which
bonnds their property, which will open up
their land very much They will also im

small portions, will hold the rest indefinitely.

J. Guilford White, the well known lawyer,
has just returned from Washington, and talks
very entertainingly on the present status of
the Cleveland administration.
"Public men in Washington," said be the
other day, "are utterly unable to understand
tbe true inwardness aud ultimate outcome of
tbe Cleveland administration, and tbe future
has never been more uncertain than at pres
ent. In tbe fi'St place Cleveland seems to
have tewarded the men who stood by him
and made bis nomination in tbe Chicago Con
vention, Vilas and Manning being two. who
ere rewarded by a cabinet prsition. Next,
he his reward d tbe men who contributed
large sums ot money to tbe Democratic cam
paign, such as Whitney, who got a cabinet
office. Next we see the ring reoognized
which consists of Tilden, Randall and Thur
man. We see this in the appointment of
Dan'l Manning to the Treasury, and in the
appointment ot Miller in tbe Internal Reve
nue, instead of Carlisle's man, Thomson of
Kentucky. Then we have the recognition of
a clique of Penusylvnnia p diticians, promi
nent among whom is Bill Scott, by tbe ap
pointment of Hay to be First Assistant Post
master Geuernl, instead ot Constaatine, who
was John McLean's man. B indall is 1 he Jbig
man in tbe administration, and sever il ot his
friends have been rewarded. Then there i
the mug-wumbs, Henry Watd Beecber, the
New Yoii. Tims, Herald, and all tint
gang. They made the retention of Pearson,
in the New York Postoffice, the great test
case ot tbe genuineness of Cleveland's civil
service reform policy, and would tke no nay.
Cleveland was l recti to make the appoint
ment to ke-p this class on tbe s ring and
avoid a bteak with them. 1 hecusii g which
is going on in Democratic ranks at Cleve
land's policy is not a bit rug.erattd. It is
an open secret ibat tbe Senate adjourned be
cause the Republicans were not yet ready o
cjme to the issu" of resisting Cleveland's
appointments, and tbe Denucrats were atraid
that they would be f. reed to bieak with
Clev.lani. Senator litck and others are very
much down on Cleveland's (o'.icy. Tfce Dem
ocratic party is now waning. If Cleveland
discontinues his present policy in makirg
appoin men's, an 1 confines bimsel to reward
ing Democratic partisans, the past will be
forgiven; but il he goes on at his present
rate a split is inevitable. There is talk that
Cievtla' d is endeavoring to for.u a new
Reform party which will come be'ore the
people as a di.-ti ct organization in the next
campaign. There is a grev deal of
humbuggery about tbe civil service
examinations. All tbe questions are
not practical, and many who have papers
showing a good examimtion, make wretched
clerks. Many civil service eliminations
have been appointed in Southern cities lately,

cellent quality this year.
which has n.-t been done hereto'ore. I think
most of the Government clerks
will be tetained tor a long time
at least. There are many ways to ilnke
them out, however. Far instance, a large
number of clerks wi.l be dismissed from a
department under pretense ol economy.
Shortly after a number of new appointments
will be made ot Uemocrauccietics 10 isKe ine
places of those d'stnissed. The lady clerks
in the departments are truly to be pitied. Some
of them are almost losing their minds brood
ing over the question of their losing their
places. They are fitted for nothing but cler
ical work, and wculd be in a wretched po
sition shiuld they be dismissed. They can
tot be made to believe that that there is any
honest intention ot civil service reform, and
of rewarding the best clerks on the part ot
the Democratic heads ot Departments, and
are correspondingly miserable. There is a
large class of male department clerks who
were lukewarm duriogMhe Presidential cani

fact, since they believe it will secure their

be engaged, for the solos, and the Cincinnati
Grand Orchestra for the instrumental p irticns

of music in Springfield. O.e grand conceit

more for general musical advancement than n

a spoon and covered it up with jam, and then
called the child. The latter came with eye3
snapping with eagerness when she saw the
jam, and lost no lime in transerring thated -tile

the child, and then adding with an exqui

The folbwmg are tbe resolutions of condo
lence passed by tbe Lexington M. E. Confer
ence, in session here, April 7, 1885, to Gen
eral Gra'nt and family :
Whereas, General Ulyssus S Grant, the
matchless commander, the immovable patriot
and exalted philanthropist, whose labors for
bis ci uotry will stand ever green in tbe his
tory thereof, and whose indomitable courage
and heroic firmness stved it from dismem
berment in the day of its dire necessity, is
now lying upon tbe bed of afll ction and rap
idly approached the end of his noble career;
Whereas, The simple trust that General
Grant reposes in his God and his invocation
ot the blessings of tbe Deity upon those ot
his household affords an example wor by ot
consideration, and is a signal triumph o' our
holv religion over skepticism and unfaitb,
which is widely prevalent in these times;
Resolved, Tnat this C inference hereby re
cords its prayerful sympitby with General
Grant and his family in this hour ot their
affliction, and commends tbem to .he tender
m rcies of that God upon whom they are now
so faithfully and beautifully leaning.
Resolved, That the deep concern manifes'ed
in nnny sublime words and d eds ot General
Grant in behalf of the nero 1 opulatiou of
this c untry, exhibits a degree ol phiNn
thro hy which demand', and will ever secure
to him, the gratitude ot ihe thankful o' the

on the Tire Department for the year ending
March 31, 18S5. The running expenses of

1883, were $14,13C37; expenses out ot Fire
Engine nn 1 Building Fund, $1,983 08; total,

Chief states that, owing to the rapid growth of
the city and recent extension of city limits by
which one thoustnd structures, including
some of our liigest manulacluring concerns,
were brought in, there is necessity lor greater
fire protection and recommend- Ihe erection
ot three new hose houses, located, respective
ly, on LagomU avenue, near the I , B. k W.
Railroad crossing, on South Yellow Springs
street, aud 03 Chestnut avenue. North Side.
The outfit of machinery in charge of the de
partment is detailed; also the manual force,
as follows: One chief engineer, one assistant
chief, one superintendent of fire telegraph, five
captains and twenty-one fireman; total,
twenty-nine men. The three steamers in use
be'ore the construction ol water works re
main on hand, two in good condition. Tbey
were used once during the year,
at the burning of the Clason house.
The department has 3,530 feet of
hose, of which 550 feet of leather and 1,280
feet of rubber hose is reported in bad condi
tion. A rec-imuiendition is submitted that
two additional fii e alarm boxes he ordered and
put up, in connection with the fire telegraph
system, one at Mulberry and Shiffer streets,
and one on ihe comer of Elm street and
Sherman avenue. The necessi'y is also urged
of ch tnziig the two line circuit and repeater
now in use into a four line.
The chief has been careful to see that the
thirty-nine fi e ci'teros in use before the
water works were completed, are kept filled
with water that they may 1 ready for service
in case of fire, in event of any possible acci
dent to the water work.
The Market House Matter.
Tbe status ot the new market touse enter
prise since Ihe popular expression in its favor
at Monday's eltc'ion, is not so generally
understood as it might le, son.e having the
impnssiou that authority is yet to be given
tor the issue of Iwnds. Section tour, of the

reads: "It a nmj' rity ot the electors votirg at

ot said tcnds, theu tbe Cuu cil may issue and

provided, but in t o hrwi-e." As no provis
ion is mide in the bill for purchase ot a site,
-Market fq mre stems to be the only one
available to the city, unless tbete is further
Irgislatisn authorizing the purchase of a site.
There is unmi'takably a considerable and
growing sentiment, not in any private inter
ests citl.er, sg-iinst such occupation of the
square, which is the only open space the city
has centril'y located, and certainly needed
for various purposes lh it might be mentioned
as it now is fully as much as a market house
