We are authorized to announce Geoiiob W.

of Assessor and Treasurer of Alexander County at
the approaching November election.
Dit lUrcn, of the state board of health,
is investigating the effects of the Chicago
sewerage on the- Illinois river end canal.
According to the Chicago Journal ho con
siders this the most serious sanitary problem
to bo solved in this state. Ho has secured
specimens of tlfo water at about two dozen
points, and intends to repeat the trip once
a mouth and make a thorough investigation
of the subject.
The Norristown Herald denounces in
fitting terms, tlic German professor who in
vented a machine for 'turning over the
presumptious meddler should como into
general use, what disposition, the Herald
inquires, could bo made of the average
young man in high shirt-collar and hair
parted in the middle who at evening social
gatherings stands up at the end of the
piano and turns over the music for the lady
performer? He appears fit for no other
purpose under the sun.
Jeff Davis has evinced no purposo to
loosen his grip upon the property given to
lum under the will of Mrs. Dorsey. It is
alleged that the hoary old sinner exercised
undue influence over tho mind of the weak'
old lady played the role of dead-beat
with the old creature, for a full year or
more before her death. The heirs, whom
the sly old schemer would rob of their right
ful inheritance, will fight him as long as
they have money or credit with which to
do battle; and that they have the sympathies
of honest men everywhere, need scarcely bo
The Chicago Times says: Governor
Palmer told a reporter who ran over a list
of presidential possibilities in Illinois,
"You have. omitted the best name in the
state, that of Lyman Trumbul.
TrQinbul is a great man, who
would make a great ' president."
Whereupon it occurred to the newspaper
man to ask if Judgo Dayis wouldn't make
a good president. Tho answer "u
would, indeed ; mid bCbidcS that llU WOUld
be a strong candidate. He is very popular
among the people of this state." And so
say we, and so say thousands who will not
vote with the Democratic party unless Da
vis is its nominee.
A very dangerous $5 counterfeit on tho
National Stato Bank, Troy, N. Y., has just
'appeared in New York City. It, is be
lieved that attempts will be made to dis
pose of a number of these notes in Brook
lyn, Boston, Philadelphia, aid other cities.
Examine all five-dollar notes on this bank
carefully. The check letters on the notes
captured is A, but other letters may appear,
' as the plato is in tho hands of tho counter-1
fciter. This counterfeit is printed from the
same plate as the Tainaquu and Fnwling
notes, and is exceedingly dangerous. Coun-
tcrfeit has name of J. C. New as Treasurer,
and old seal. All genuine notes, with

This renders detection a
The impression prevails that John IIo
gan was nquitted. because the jury held tliut
tho killing of Artcr was an excusublo homi
cide. Nothing could bo further from tho
truth. Tho jury declared that Hogan was
guilty of the murder of Artcr, as charged
in tho indictment, but that, being hisnno nt
tho moment, of tho killing ho was incapa
bio of appreciating tho enormity of his act,
and, therefore, was not responsible for what
ho did. Hut, let tho verdict tell its own
story. Hero it is: "We, tho jury, find
that tho defendant is guilty of killing oi
Charles D. Artcr as charged in the indict
ment! but that at tho time of the killing,
tho said defendant was insauc; and we
further find that he has permanently recov-
cred from such insanity." Certainly there
is no room for two versions of a result that .
is so plainly and unmistakably stated. Ho-
gsm was pronounced guilty; but irresponsi
ble, because insane.
Nearly all of our Southern Illinois
weeklies devote much spaco to neighbor
hood news. Correspondents in neighbor
ing localities send in itemized correspond
ence every week, aud until within tho past
year or so tho news thus furnished, was
readable and entirely acceptable to tho pat
rons of the papers furnishing it. But of
late the correspondence lias degenerated in
to an aggregation of puffs of business houses
from which tho correspondent may have re
ceived favors- "Bumble has the best cig
ars in the burg. Go see." "Hamel's new
calicoes are nobby. The women say so."
"Buy yourrlanuels of llubbell;and your su
gar from Semple.'' -"If you want a fine tootli
comb, go to Vermin's," and so on, ad uau-
seum, ad infinitum. Asniue-tentlisofthesc
ill shaped puffs bring no ducats to the ex
chequer of the publisher, his generosity is
quite as much taxed in the publishing of
them, as is the patience of the reader in
reading them. Why, then, are they s per
sistently and mercilessly thrust upon the
newspaper reading public?
THE MILK UTES AND THEIR
The news of the butchery of Maj.
Thoruburgh and thirteen bravo comrades
by the Milk HiverTtes, reached us several
days ago. Why the handful of troops was
dispatched to that distant region, is ex
plained thus: A bad feeling has existed
between the Indians of the White River
agency and their agent, Meeker, for months
past, and the only wonder is that the form
er haven't tried their hand at killing long
befoTO this. Mr. Meeker, or, as he is fam
iliarly ' known in Colorado, "Father
Meeker,'' lodged a complaint with the de
partment at Washington against some of
iio wards, -rrhn h.3J been guilty of wrong
doing. When this fact reached them they
proceeded to make things warm tor their
agent. Mr. Meeker called on the author
ities to protect him, as his life and the lives
of his family were jeopardized. The sec re
tary of war ordered Gen. Sheridan to send
some troops down to Father Meeker's
agency, and this resulted in the dispatch
ing of the Thornburgh command.
While all this was being arranged, the
Utcs were busily occupied in providing
themselves with improved guns. About
two weeks ago the sheriff at Rawlins gave
information to the government authorities
to the effect that a trader livingjust outside
tho White River agency had sold the In
dians a large number of 'fVinchester ri:les,
together with an ample stock of cartridges.
The Indians even sent runners to trading
posts in other sections to buy Winchester
guns. In the meantime the squaws of the
band were firing the forest. Tho whole
country was lurid with blazing pines, and
it looked like a determined effort on the
part of tho Utes'to smoke old Father
Meeker out of his situation.
This North Carolina Meeker form
erly resided near Dongola.
His entire family, with two young men
named Dresser, formerly of Anna, we believe,
were of tho parties whoso lives were con
sidercd in such irninent peril.
OUR NEW YORK LETTER.
THE LATEST NEW YORK SENSATION THE
GREAT CONTEST FOR THE ASTI.EY BELT
ENDED ROWELL HAS THE SOURCE OF AN
OTHER FORTUNE WHAT NEXT? NEW
YOHK TROUBLES THE GROWTH OK THE
EMPIRE CITY, ETC.
From our Regular Correspondent.
New York, Oct. 4, 1879.
, The great race is over after one of the most
exciting weeks ever known in tho history
of this great city. Rowell, the Englishman,
is ngain the winner of the, Astley belt with
the Connecticut newsboy second. Tho
belt goes back to England, Charles Rowell
having scored the largest number of miles
in the contest.- His record was 5:50 miles,
followed by Merrittwith 515 miles, Hazael
500, Hart (tho colored boy) 462,Guyou 471,
eston 455, Ennis 400, Krohney 450. Tay
lor 250. The other starters withdrew .be
fore tho contest closed, with tho following
records: Dutchen 23 miles, Punehot 154,
Jackson . 333 and Federmey
cr. The attendance throughout
Saturday was very lure, though it was eusy
early in tho day to assign the principal con
testants their positions, as Rowell had recov
ered from his illness of Fridny ond wag

steadily increasing his lead of ten miles
over his most fomidablo opponent, Merritt.
At 7:1 5 Saturday evening an exciting spurt
occurred. Rowell completed his 25th
milo and was joined by Hart, tho colored
boy, who challenged tho pace, ond tho mo
ment they started they -were joined by
Hazah and Merritt. A.grand and most ex
citing race ensued. Bide by sido went
Rowell and tho negro at a ten-mile gait,
which every moment was increased and im
mediately behind them and trying to catch
up were lluzael and Merritt almost side by
side. They went around in tho order
named for several laps, aud one continuous
yell rent tho air. Tho pace proved too hot
for Hart, and ho soon succumbed, and ho
was followed by Merritt, who also found
tho pace too quick for him. Then the race
was continued by Rowell and Hazael for a
few laps, when they too concluded to give
It up. The perspiration was rolling off each
of the four. It was tho most exciting
tiwslo that occured during the day. The
gross receipts during the six days aggre
gated $79,023, of which one-fourth, $18,
4S0, goes to the lessees, leaving $55,443
from which is to bo deducted
the net receipts about $45,
443 for distribution among the contestants
who scoiod 450 miles and over. Of this
amount according to tho contest, Rowell
will get oue-lmlf, and tho balance to be
tlistributed.amongthe other competitors in
proportion to the miles completed as may
be directed by Sir J. D. Astley, Bart, M.
P., the' giver of tho belt. In addition Row
ell gets the entrance money, $3,500, of
which he had deputed $500. All
tho pedestrians who took part
in the contest, with the e.vvption
ofEunisand Guy on, were astir cf.rjy this
morning. Rowell got up obov.t '3 o'clock
and eat a hearty breakfast. Besides little
stitTncs in his left kace. he feels c me the
worse for lr.s late exertion. He is ttill of
tho opinion that he was pois-med .a Fri
day, but how ur in what means he cn;ld not
ay, and but for his siekivss ho
ieeis confident that he wou have
beat Weston's record by r.ianj lv.iks.
Weston, Pansl-.ot and Merrett paid'R-ve!l
a visit during the morning. They d-cuis-d
the late contest in the most i'rur.fl'' man
ner. Rowell will not return 1 Engl.-.d until
after the O'Leary belt contest. Gr.j m had
quite a number of callers at lis liettl dur
ing the day. He was in good spitts, al
though very still and sore about tie ankle
and icet. HetooK a drive in UuiMi par.
in the afternoon, accompanied by his back
er. Tiie next contest for the AstUy belt
will take place in London, and it is' probi
b!e that O'Leary will be accepted f.s the
challenger. Rowel! stated to-day that h
would ask Sir John Astley to chaife the
conditions for all future contests so tiat 500
miles must be covered to in.tre any ihare of
the gate money. A meeting of the bjard
of managers will l;e held at the Madison
Square garden to-morrow, when, it is proba
ble, the gate money will be divided among
the men who covered 450 miles. "Weston
stated to-day that he should enter the text
contcxtTor the belt, and feels confident that
he will surpass his last record.
The streets ot New York r.nd Brooklyn
are unclean, in comparison with othercit.es
in the Union. The sweeping machines
are unknown here. At least I have neer
aeen one. There is much complaint here
of malaria a complaint never heard in
former days. Dirty streets is probally
the cause in the lower section, and the
closing up of the old water works in the
upper. You may drive out nature by force,
but she willcome back again. How true
this is in many other matters besides the or.c
referred to. For nature will not be violated
with impunity, even by a NcwYork capi
talist. The expenses of living in New York
having been reduced to their standard be
fore the war, a large accession of popula
tion is predicted from the rural district.-.
Thousands who have been living for the
last fifteen years in Westchester, on Long
Island, or in New Jersey, from economy,
arc now returning to the city. The million
of 1870 will probably be increased to a mil
lion and a quarter in 1880. To accommo
date these new comers, mimy vast apart
ment houses are in course of erection on
Seventh, Eight, Fourth, nnd Madison ave
nues and other streets in the vicinity f the
park. These structures are generally leven
stories high; many of them have a frontage
of 200 feet and not a few have cost over "a
million, including the ground. The larger
have fifty suites of eight rooms each. Ttie
rooms arc generally small or about the size
of those in the numerous modem houses of
Washington, of eighteen feet front. Besides
the apartment houses there are, a very large
number ol single houses going up oil oi
a superior class, at least to the eye so that
the building trade is very active, nnl the
complaint "no work" for the present un
heard. The Cheat ExrnEss Companies. Tho
three great express companies are the Uni
