Chicago Is nothing unless she Is

fieouro capital to dig a "World's Fair
hole ten miles Jeep," to bo fitted with
a series of mammoth elevators which

He estimates that sufficient gold, sil
ver and other metuls, to say nothing
of diamonds and precious stones, will
be found while digging this hole to
pay for tho expense, leaving tho rev
enue from "bar privileges" excursions,
etc., to return a very handsome profit
on tho (w)hole investment. If we
could have a guarantee that this hole
would be only ten miles deep we
should rest easier. Eut what is to
hinder this Chicago digger piercing
the earth? For our part we believe
this is a subterfuge on his part, and
that he intends to go through to
China, and use this new route to
bring tea and Chinamen into the Chi
cago market to tho detriment of the
existing steamship and railroad iin
and to convert a lake port into a dlr ct
port of foreign entry, and thus wipe

Ttfis may be a good opportunity to
state that George Hellnor a-i Director
of the Poor never had any pattouuge
to give to any newspaper. This gives
the lie to his industriously circulated
report that the Eepuolican opposes
him because he wouldn't give us his
publio patrounge. "incompetency" is
all we have to urge against his candi
dacy .ZJejj ub 'lean .
T ue. Audit may be equally tiuo
that Heffiier might have placed him
self in a position to bestow patronage
upon the Republican and It friends,
but would not stultify himself, and
that that is the reasoa why the He-
publican is pjalust liim. The IV
publicau papers of the couuty have
called upon the Reimblican to be "a
man or a mouse" and it looks as if the
sheet has determined to be a dock rat
in this campaign.
Upon serious contemplation, tho de
feat of John A. Nash was one of the
most ungrateful acts ever perpetrated
by the Democrats of this couuty. Ho
is a brilliant lawyer and has been a
life-long Democrat, and to bo denied,
without any apparent reason, tho first
and only thing ho hr. ever asked his
party was treatment which even Re
publicans are bound to look upon as
