The game of living chess that will be
played in Hartman's new hall on Thursday
evening next, should not bo forgotten by
our citizens. It is something our people have
never before been permitted to see, and will
prove highly interesting even to those who
know nothing about the game.
All of our exchunges teem with com
plimentry notices of Hon. John II. Oberly,
the Democratic nominee for secretary of
state. It is gratifying to know at this time
that tho most radical Republicans are un-,
able to point to an unclean spot in his rec

improved the appearance of his Coinique

Dunker on a warrant sworn out by two

accused her of having used obsccno, offen

guilty of what the warrant accused her.
She was asked to dance to tho tune of five
dollars and costs, which she reluctantly did
aud was permitted to go her way.
Col. McKeaig has for several days
had men and teams at work filling up one
of tho most unhealthy mud holes with
which this city has ever been nfilieted. It
was located back of his residence, aud has,
for a long time, been the receptacle of all
the retuse matter and filth generally, in
that ungodly and filthy neighborhood.
Mr.' John McNulty, who owns property in

improving the sanitary condition of the
neighborhood one hundred per cent.
Mrs. Hickman, sister-in-law of

About nine o'clock yesterday morn
ing, near Burksville, a station on the Cairo

twelve year old little girl, whose name we
did not learn. Upon learning of the crime
the citizens turned out en masse, and at
the time Conductor Kecfe's train passed
were ou the rascal's track with a good
prospect of overtaking him. If caught he
is probably now contemplating the past
from another world, since his pursuers, in
their excited state, would give him short
time and a strong rope.
Two horses, attached to an empty
wagon, while standing on Tenth street, be
tweea Walnut and Washington, yesterday
evening became frightened and went
through a tremendous leg-stretching busi
ness. They ran up Tenth to Washington,
up Washington to Thirteenth and were not
brought to a stand-still until they had al
most reached Walnut street. When stop
ped they found themselves with a remnant
ot tnc wagon, uroken Harnesses and in a
thoroughly demoralized condition. They
were the property of a negro, a resident of
tho Fifth waid.
The "Central Archery Club" met at
regular practice Monday evening, iu Lo
cust grove. The meeting was better at
tended than previous ones, but the score
was not so good. The target iu use by the
club is only about half as large as tho reg
ulation size adopted by the "national arch

into consideration when comparing scores
made, with those of other cities. The best

We are told that one of the features of the

be done and enough entrees be made, the
competing clubs can make the match in

regular holiday amusements. The club

A subscription list is being circulated
among the citizens generally, at the instiga
tion ot Messrs. E. B. Pettit. C. Lancaster, J.
S. MeGahey, Pat Lally and Henry Warden,
for the purpose of collecting about three
hundred dollars to be used in purchasing a
Urn engine for the Fifth ward. The above
named gentlemen intend to effect tho
mgauizatioii of a tire company in that
ward, and for the present need only,
a small engine and some kind
of a shed to protect it against
tho weather, etc. Tho Fifth ward is be
coming quite populous ami contains a
largo number of buildiugs, which aro near
ly all frame. When a tiro breaks out there
it is necessaay to gain tho Delta engine
houso in the Fourth ward before the alarm
can be given, and as a rule, before this
company can reach tho scene, the building
is entirely destroyed, because it Is situated
at such a great distance from thu cngiuo
house. Had tho recent flro at tho box fac
tory occurred at night, or when uo ono was
near at hand to bring speedy assistance, tho
flro would certainly have done much dam
age to property before any of the flro com
panies could have reached the spot, or
even the alarm given. The people of the
Fifth ward are entitled to an engine, and
it is only fair that they should rccoive tho
assistanco necessary; '
As will be seen from its advertise
ment elsewhere, the Illinois Central rail
road will, on the 22d of June, reduce its
fare for tho round trip to and from Chicago
to $7.50, iu order to enable every admirer of
races and grand sights, even though his
means be limited, to eaioy a short period of
recreation and gratify his sporting proclivi
ties by attending the races to be given by
the Chicago Jockey and Trotting club.
Tho club has a national reputation for the
success aud magnificence of its enterprises,
and hence the several railroads have con
sulted the interests of the traveling, as well
as the stay-at-home public, and
brought the faro within the reach
of all. Tho Illinois Central railroad
is ono of the best equipped roads iu
the world. Its track and road bed is in
excellent condition and its conductors and
other officers are gentlemen in every re
spect. Hence, a ride on the road would be
entirely safe, and a pleasure that would
bo loug remembered by all. A palace
sleeping car will be attached to the train
for tho accommodation ot passengers. A
trip to the great city even though tho races I
wero no ottrnction to tho excuisionst, would
yet make a deep impression upon the mem
ory, because of the numerous
grand sights that would force themselves
upon the atteution from all sides.
Our Republican exchanges arc full of
accounts of ratificatiou meetings which
speak well for the enthusiasm of the Radi
cals of the various cities where they ore
published. We are, of course, not "over
muchly" concerned about the doings of the
Republicans of this city or we would, long
ago, have suggested that they hold a ratifi
cation meeting in this city. Wo say, we
would have suggested this long ago, but for
the fact that we are not over-anxious to see
them successful and for the additional rea
son that we expected our neighbor on the
levee to make the suggestion. But since
he has not yet done so it
would not be amiss should he work upon
the feelings ot his readers by iuserting the
following in this evening's Sun: "The
Democrats ot Illinois have placed in the
field a state ticket of undoubted strength'.
They have selected only able and pure men
and there can be no doubt but that their
ticket will call out the strength the party
has in Illinois next November. This being
a fact, it behooves us to be "up and doing"
it behooves us to unite tho dis
cordant elements in our party
in this county and iu order
to partially accomplish this, let our Rcpub-1
lican friends take immediate steps that will
result in a grand ratification meeting. Our
state and presidential tickets are iu the
field, and our party should arouse itself
from its Rip Van Winkle sleep, by the
thought that our enemy is busy, etc., etc."
An item of this kind would be "just the
thing" at the present, and if our neighbor
feels disinclined to write one, he may copy
the above, which will answer the desired
The Argus day before yesterday pub
lished tire following from the Springfield
Journal and calls it a good joke:
"What do you think of our ticket!"
asked a Cook county Democrat of a Chica
go reporter last night. "Wheu the Demo
crats wake up in the morning and read in
the Times the names of Trumbull, Parsons,
Oberly and Starkel, they will exclaim:
il 1 and d nation, have the Republicans
been holding another convention at Spring
The above item intimates that Mr. Trum
bull, General Parsons, Mr. Oberly und Dr.
Starkel are ex-Republicans. Iu this the
Journal is in error, but if it were true it
would merely signify that the gentlemen
referred to, governed by conscientious con
victions, had abandoned a party that was
in the majority iu Illinois and iden
tilied themselves with the minority
a thing that corrupt men and
bitious ofliceseekers never do.
But, as the
State Register says, tho State Journal's
statement is untrue. Parsons, Oberly and
Starkel have always been Democrats.
Judge Trutnbell is the only man on the
Democratic ticket who has been a Re
publican; and the world has been amply
supplied by that distinguished gentleman
himself with conclusive reasons why, ten
years ago, ho resumed his membership in
tho Democratic party. Tho people of Illi
nois will, oil various occasions, hear Judge
Trumbull in the course of the impending
canvass, and utmc will hour without believ
ing that tho tried and trustworthy states
man is nbuudantly furnished with reasons
for the faith that is in him. A number of
the leaders of the Itcpuhticnn party wero

Mr. Trumbull is known all over the state
as a modest gentleman, who has devoted
nearly all his life to the furtherance of
public interest and whose many good qual
ities so endeared him to the Democracy of
the state that the mere mention of his
name at the Springfield convention, which
represented every portion of the state, drew
forth the wildest demonstrtaions of fuvor.
Mr. Lewis B. Parsons, the nominee for
lieutenant-governor, is iu every respect
equal to Mr. Trumbull, and adds a
strengh to tho ticket without which its
chances of success would be considerably
lessened. Of Mr. Oberly, the candidate
for secretary of state, we can say nothing
that is not known by everybody who will
be likely to glance over these columns and
thousands more who will not. We, and as
the numerous county instructions and other
indorsements which he received prove, tens
of thousands of others would like to have
seen his name at the head of the ticket:
for we are confident that his popularity
throughout the state is equal to any man's,
and that he would have insured Democratic
success. He has labored, 6ince his youth,
for the public good; served the people who
honored him with the management of their
affairs, with a purity of motive anil an
ability which challenged their admiration
and induced them to confide to him trust
after trust until he rose from a type-setter
in the old Democrat office, in this city, to
a member of the state legislature, where
he promulgated some of the wisest meas
ures that bear the authority of the state.
No better tribute to his worth could Ijc de
sired than his nomination by acclamation
by the state convention. The other centle-
men on the ticket, Messrs. Lewis C,
starKle tor auditor, 1 nomas Butterworth
for treasurer and Lawrauce Harmon tor attorney-general,
are all men whose reputa
tions are spotless and whose names carry
with them additional strength. On the
whole we believe that the ticket can u4
be beaten even by the concentrated forces of
Republicanism. That it has the hearty
support of the Democrats iu every part of
the state and unites its dill'erent elements
iu one solid column oi determined re
formers is amply proven by the reports
from every county and leaves no doubt
that tho result will find Illinois Demo
cratic, from Alexander to Cook.
Jim Kouken, who has been in this city,
perhaps over twenty years, and who has
lately been greatly reduced in circum
stances, was a day or two ago Bent to Fair
field, Ohio, with money that was collected
from oilr citizens. Many years ago he wns
a conductor on tho Illinois Central railroad,
with plenty of money ,and too many friends,
who took pains to show him all possible
courtesies on every occasion. He was
blessed with that best of treasures, a
good wife, who was beautiful and refined
and was the daughter of a wealthy
gentlemen who resides in Wisconsin.
Ho enjoyed the respect of all of our peo
ple; tho true friendship of a few, and thu
entire confidence of the company in whose
employ he was. But this stato of affairs
did not last long. Hq became addicted to
liquor and by tho two frequent use of it
was rendered incompetent for the dis
charge of his duties. Tho company dis
charged him, after which he opened a
boat store in the building, (wo believe
tho one that is now occupied by Messrs.
R. Smyth & Co.,) on Ohio levee. After a
short timo ho disposed of tho business in
some way and remained in this city with
out employment until his money was all
gone, and then secured a situation us bar
keeper in ono of our saloons. From this
on his descent was rapid, elng continu
ally in tlui presruco of liquor ho could not
resist the temptation of drinking, and ho
did drink. After a few years of this life,
und when ho had becomo an habitual
drunkard, his wife loft him, return
ing to tho house of her father. Ho
next lost his situation in the saloon on ac
count of drunkonness, but boing popular
wlth"tho boys, "ho soon secured a like situa
complete stock ever brought
tion in an other saloon.which howeve,for the
same cause, he did not hold long. He
made several attempts to reform, but the
demon, drink, had secured too strong a
hold upon him and being unasisted in his
efforts by sympathizing friends, he failed.
Hercatter he was occasionally permitted to
tend bar for a day or two by some of our
saloon keepers, but having became unrelia
ble he was refused a steady situation. For
the last year or more he has principally
lived off of the charity tf
one of his old employers and
has for some mouths past, slept on a tool
bench in the Arab engine house, and, being
miserably clothed, his pride prevented him
from appearing upon the streets except
when he thought he could, by so doing, ob
tain a drink or a mouthful to eat. The
clothes he wore had not been Irom his
back for months and as a consequence were
filled with lice. He was in this pitiable
condition wheu Officer Dunker took com
passion on him and called upon our mer
chants for money wherewith to buy
him a new suit of clothes
and send him to his relatives. The
money was collected and the 6uit
of clothes obtained, and it was suggested
to him that he visit his wife
and attempt to live a reformed life. But
his appearance was so altered, and he was
so conscious of his debauched " appearance,
that he cried like a child at the thought
and firmly refused to do this. He, however,
consented to go the home of his mother at
Fairlield, Ohio, and accordingly a ticket
was bought for that place and ho was
started on his journey, and in a few days
will meet the mother to whom he owes his
being, a pitiable wreck to whom the
world is nothing aud who is nothing to the
A COLD BLOODED MURDER.
IIOIK1E8, A PIIOMINKXT FARMER OP JOHN
SON COUXTV. SHOT THIlOL'OIl THE HEART
Two farmers of Johnson county, named
respectively Hodges und Hutton, had a
difficulty in that county yesterday morn
ing, at about seven o'clock, which resulted
in tho willful murder of Mr. Hodges by a
third party. It appears that a quarrel
had sprung up between the two men some
time ago and they cordially hated each
other. Yesterday morning, at the time
stated above, they met and resumed the
quarrel, when Hutton dared Hodges to
fight him. Hodges while attempting to
get to Hutton, was shot through the heart
by a party who was concealed in the
weeds, and who was a friend of Hutton's.
Of course, death was tho immediate result.
Hutton and Hodges are neighbors and two
of the most prominent men
of tho county. Great excitement
prevoils among the people of the
county and hundreds are scouring the
neighborhood in quest of the murderer.
Tl'.e'ofllcers of this city last night received
a description of the man who.it is supposed,
is tho perpetrator of the cowardly deed,
nud it was supposed that he would arrive
here during tho night, but at the. time of
going to press, no arrest had been made.
