Though Uartleht wai the leader of eon

conciliate and recede about halt way on
many measures of party exact no, lllalne,

Itanlutlon would bo lurtiionloui with him

that I would vote for Ulscock. 1 made
this Btatetuent upon the (-round work of
Maine's argument that good party govern
ment required a speaker who would bo
agreeable to the party president. Initio
meantime darncld was shot and llngi red a
long while, and Arthur became president
1 then felt that ray promise did not hold
good as to Mr. Illscock. In fact, from the
nature of that promise 1 felt called upon to
support a speaker who would be In harmo
ny with the president, namclj, General
Arthur. I therefore told Maine that his
argument waa my Influence to support some
other man than Hlscncx. After Uarlleld
left congress there was no question or Kel
ler being the leader there. He represented
tho army and a strong republtcau wi tern
atato, which had an almost united dele
gation on the republican side. U had
sit en utlsf action to his constituents nhd to
his fellow-members, lie seemed to me to
be the most available man tn sight to run.
lie was elected, and. In my judgment, the
congress orer which he presided was one of
the most successful congresses the republi
can party ever held, when you cons! It r the
fact that the democrats had maintained not
long before a nearly two-thirds majority,
and had been several times In control of
the bouse. The difficulty about Kelfer
turned out to be that he had a ery thick
akin and that he was very pugnacious. Ills
akin was about as thick as that of any roan
1 ever saw. He had come up from a plain
class, though he was an educated man We
wanted to take care of him on the Hoar,
and -were ready to do so, but he would Tint

ing on answering back and taking up any
thing to his umbrage from the chair. That
and his thick skin were the only defects
of character that I could see. Mr. Blalue
set against ns the republican press.
It that press had given the usual support
expected of a party press, that congress
would have been triumphant, tor It passed
more legislation of an important character
than almost any congress since the war,
and was one of the most hard-working con
gresses ever assembled at the capital. I
know that I was only absent two days dur
ing that whole congress, when 1 was called
away by a family event We changed the
time of meeting from 12 o'clock to It iu
the morning, and we often sat there late in
the evenings. We passed the Utah bill,
the tariff commission bill and the bill to

which may be of material value In the

M. Hill, who baa supplied Springfield with
many excellent attractions:
To the Kdltorot the Republic!
What a mighty transformation tho hand
of time has wrought In a comparatively
few yew years. This and almlllarthoughts
ot astonishment and pleasant surprise oc
cupied my mind a the mammoth structure
called the Arcade confronted me ou arriv
ing at Springfield a few day a ago. Mr.
Kdltor, I need not mention with what curi
osity 1 ventured forth to give the Champion
City a partial Inspection. To you who
quietly and aerenely dwell atu'dtt tho won
derlulchangeawhich have taken place alnce
1 87-, wltett circumstances occasioned my
departure for the east, cannot perhaps so
fully appreciate the marvelous progressive
enterprise which haa left Its mark In every
direction. One has only to remain away
for a period of sixteen yeara, a I have
done, and return, to find the scone ot my
boyhood daya usurped In a thousand and
ono ways, and try to recall memories of
the pleasant past Although the retro
spective with different attrroundlnga I
aomewhat dtnioult to meditate, 1 noverthe
leu landed myself .back again when I
atruggled with the rudiments ot education
at the old Western school; how In after
years I gradually became familiar n'.th &
faces ot many who have crossed the river
beyond, and the many who illlt remain,
among whom I waa cordially welcomed on
my appearance. It waa such a autiree ot
profound pleasure to bo approached on tho
streets and called byname that Urn frequent
recognitions made mo feel quite at home.
I could not, therefore, refrain front submit
ting a few llnea to your valuable paper, lit
hope that the reader ot the Uki'um.io
may hear ot the joy t experienced on my
recent visit Yea, Mr. Kdltor, the trans
formation It ao complete that I could
acarcely Imagine myself In dear old Spring
Held; ami yet the progress so evident .In
spired me with pride, tor no matter where
ono roams, the acenea which delight the
youth live on continually, and Invariably
bring back fond recollections. The mag
nificent Judicial edifice, as well aa tho great
number ot other elegaut buildings which
now bad such Importance arrested my at
tention, and when I contemplate the gov
ernment and municipal enterprises aa well
as the Individual benevolence which will
shortly adorn the Champion City, it seems
to me that the good people of my former
homo will have much to be proud of.
Never can I forget the first street car pro
pelled by single mute power that trans
ported passengers trnin tho Lagonda
House to Strlngtown. Whatachanisa the
several lines now traversing the principal
lines occurs to me? Nor can my mind's
eye lose sight ot that antiquated structure
wherein tho city fathers regulated the at
fairs ot the municipality and wherein 1 ao
often sat on a hard brick to enjoy an even
ing's entertainment That old pile ot
bricks and mortar with IU white steeple,
was an eye-sore to me even In those days,
as little as I then knew ot modern archi
tecture aud 1 was heartily glad
to find it replaced. The Grand
opera houso and numerous other
attractho features which give Springfield
such a metropolitan air furnish but a
mild Idea ot what I may expect of your
push and energy in the near future. I could
dwell at length upon the various sights that
Interested me and the ardent attentions I
was honored with, but dare not trespass
upon your space. Suffice It to say that I
have no cause to regret my visit excepting
tho brevity ot mr sojourn. It would have
been exceedingly agreeable to have re
mained with you longer, nut urgent oust-
ness called me away, and I left, taking
with me the brightest hopes for the pros
perity and general welfare of the city, the
keeping of which Is In the hearts ot friends
for whom I cherish the highest regards and
best wishes. Truly yours,
Joseph W. FisAxifti.

A few days ago Prof. Edgar F. Smitbi
who occupied the chair of natural sciences
at Wittenberg college, was elected as pro-)
fessor of analytical chemistry or toe Uni
versity or Pennsylvania, at Philadelphia,
which position he arcepted, severing bis
connection with Wittenberg.
This morning the faculty met to eloct
successor, and elected two young men of
this city, graduates ot the college, to prosj
lessorsmps. i ue poxsuas so uuiioreu were
Mcssii Alvln J". Linn, of ,u n i Samuel
S. Kellar, of '87. '
Mr. Linn will teach chemistry, mineral
ogy, while Mr. Kellar will teach physics,
zoology and botany.also a class in German,
to assist Prof. Schilling.
Mr. Linn is a member of the class of '87,
and studied under the gentleman whom ha
succeeds. He also took a post graduate
course at the Johns llopnina university at
altlmor&t-Uewon considerable distlno-
tlonas-s-student and bad he remained at
the university a month longer the title of
doctor would have been bestowed upon
him. He Is a very capable young
man, and will do himself credit In his capa
city as professor of natural sciences.
Mr. Kellar is also a young man of this
city and is a member of the nlgn school
class of '83. and class '87 of Wittenberg.
Mr. Kellar was also a student under Dr.
Smith and marked his career in college by
being an honor member of his class. Doth
young men are great acquisition to the fac
ulty of the college and go far to lessen
tho loss in so valuable a teacher as ur.
Smith, the retiring professor.
Dr. Smith goes to Philadelphia tomorrow
to assume bis new position. Mr. Linn lett
last evening for Baltimore to attend to
borne affairs at his school and upon Ids re
turn will enter upon bis duties at Wltten-
A Flno b'ntertalument.
Tomorrow night Star Division, No. 4,

committee on arrangements has taken con
siderable patos to made the affair a com

This Is the first entertainment of this nsture
given by this lodge, and they, from their

gratulate themselves upon the result of
their und. rtaklnf. The music will be ot
the best Prof. Scurry's Dig Four orchestra
furnishing the same.
Itefreshments consisting of all the del

This (Tui-sday) morning Frank Hughes,
postmaster ot Now Carlisle, and ticket
agent of the 0 I. & W. at that point, died
after a long and painful Illness ot typhoid
fever. The deceased was a youug man,
SO years ot age, and was very popular and
highly esteemed among his ery numerous
friends. A distressing feature connected
with his death was that ho was engaged to
MUs Mary Uolan, ot this city, and was soon
to have been marrlod. She has the
sympathy of a wide circle ot friends.
The remains ot the deceased which were
Immediately brought to this city for Inter
ment, were taken charge of his parents who
reside In here. The time for the funeral
services has not been determined upon yet,
as all the arrangements have not been com
pleted. The career of the deceased was a fine
example ot what can be accomplished In
life by an exemplary young man, who has
good morals, pusn, petseteranco anu rec
The Victim ot Folly.
The writer was once taken by a physi
cian to seo a patient who might well he
called the victim ot folly or rattier ot false
modesty. Ho seemed to be in me last
stages of physical mipotency. His arms,
his legs, his mouth and bis eyes seemed
each to be almost Incapable of doing work.
The man had no violent disease. Kach
member had gone back to a senile
and shocking Infancy, though the suf
ferer was but a young man. The phi
nlcla.ii said to the writer at the timo
that the disease of the young man was.
in its earlier stages, one ot the very easiest
to cure. It almost always yielded to simple
remedies, liut through motives of foolish
delicacy the youth had kept the matter to
himself, neglecting, until too late, to con
sult a physician.
Header, if you are tn such danger your
self, do not fall Into a like error; It you
have a friend who Is In such danger, warn
him before it Is too late. On Thursday,
September 13th, the celebrated Dr. Albert,
of the Cleveland Medical Institute, will be
atthe St. James hotel, Springfield. He has
had vast experience. Ue Is a gentleman
who will not abuse your confidence. Con
sult him while you are still curable.
