President Arthur's prompt and deter
mined stand, in appearance at least, in fa
vor of short and sharp dealings with the

which somehow had obtained tho impres

president directs tho prosecution to go

-As tho matter, it is said, is now being
thoroughly investigated by the proper au
thorities, would it not be as well for tho
Argus to suspend judgment on the Villa

of the report is settled. The Argus seems
to have suddenly departed from its line of
"sayiug nothing of u man unless it can bo
something good." Thieves, gamblers and
other rogues pass without a word, but a
scandal in which "a leading member of the
church and Sunday school superintendent"
is involved is mado tho teit of a daily
The cost of tho uew elevator is greater
than people seem to think. Every detail is
complete, and the building is of tho most
substantial kind. Wo have talked with
several men who ought to know and their
information is tint the pay roll of men
employed, up to last Saturday night,
amounted to the snug little sum of eighty
seven thousand dollars. Tho estimates of
the cost of building complete varies from
two hundred and sixty to two hundred and
ninety thousand dollars. Its capacity is
three quarters of a million bushels of grain.
The past three or four months have
been busy ones, especially to mechanics
whoso work is in any way connected with
building. Not only have our own citizen
mechanics had plenty of work, but drafts
have been made on all the country 'round
for carpenters, bricklayers, plasterers, la
borers, teamsters, wagons and horses. The
filling of Railroad street has kept scores of
men and teams in steadily ' employment for
several months. Tho opera house has fur

new elevator. Among tho substantial
buildings erected by private parties,

THE MURDERER OF ZIMMERMAN!.
In the Pulaski county circuit court yes
terday tho murderer, Redden, waa granted
a change of vonuo to Maasao county. The
change ot vonuo is usually tho first step
taken by uttorneyi for tho dofenso toward
wearing out tho case tho course that saves
marly every murderer from punishment
suited to the crime, and that will eventual
ly lead to tho same. result in Southern Illi
nois that it did in McLean county, whero a
murderer, last week, was hung by tho people-
within half an hour after his crime waa
committed. In tho caso just cited tho
people, when appealed to to let the law take
its course, cried, "D n tho law, we want
justice; no murderer is ever punished in
McLean county." Investigation showed
that for twenty-five murders committed in
as many years, not one of tho assassins had
been punished; and bo wo find it in every
county in tho state. The safest place for
the man who commits murder is at the bar
of jusfico. Tho crimo of Redden was a
particularly astrocious one. We clip from
tho Argus a correct accouut of it in sub
stance tho same as it appeared in Tub
Bulletin at the time tho crime was com
"Tho crime of Redden is ono of the
blackest on record. Witnesses identify him
as the man who did it. It waa understood
immediately after he crime was committed
that he did it, and ho was searchedjfor high
and low, but ho lied from the country, aud
the rewards offered for his apprehension
secured his capture in Tennessee morn than
two years after the crime was committed.
The simple details of tho murder was these:
Redden went into tho store of Zimmcrmann
with an old army revolver, and asked Mr.
Zimmcrmann for caps to cap it with. Zitti
mermann took down from tho shelf a box
of caps and gave Rodden enough to cap
his pistol with. Redden put on tho caps,
then coolly drew up tho pistol and shot
Zimmcrmann, afterwards completing the
work of murder by striking him on the
head with it. Then the murderer rifled
tho dead man's pockets ot a large sum of
money which Zimmcrmann had incautious
ly exposed when making change for Red
den some time previously. A little daugh
ter ot the murdered man saw the whole af
fair and identifies the prisoner. Mrs. Zim
mcrmann saw the back of the man as he
was rifling her husband's puckers, and
others identify him as having been there
about that time."
