A shrewd method of keeping alive tho
Land League agitation has been suggested
in Dublin. It is that such of the impris

Then, upon tho release of tho members

Grant never forgets his friends or for

of Registcrof Wills for the District, Colonel
Amos Webster, who once served on General
Grant's staff, and named for tho place one
Rumsdell, whose uamo has never been sent
to the Senate lor confirmation. Grant has
arranged it so that Webster is to have his
old position back again, which the tenure
ot office act made it easy for the President
to do, and thus the Silent Worker serves a

of Dr. J. II. Bryant, who received it recent

Two tramps boarded a Cairo Short Line
train at Pinckneyville, Saturday, and when
the conductor demanded their fare they re
fused to pay, claiming they hail no money,
riiillips, the conductor, and a brakeman
named Benson, thereupon searched the fel
lows and found sonic money, out of which
they took the amount of fare. The tramps
left the train at DuQuoiu and complained
to the authorities that they had been robbed
by Phillips and Benson, and procured their
arrest. Before the arrest was made the
sheriff sent a telegram to East St. Louis,
but ere it reached there tho accused gave
bond. On his arrival at East St. Louis late
Saturday night, Phillips was arrested, but
as it was Hhown that he was already under
bonds, he was promptly released.

Tho suggestion that Mr. Daniel bo required
togivo a bond for tho faithful performance
of his contract can be entertained only upon
tho hypothesis that tho city can loso some
thing that sho never had. Tho city invests
nothing whatever iu tho proposed water
works; it only gives Mr. Daniel certain
privileges upon condition that ho finishes
tho works iu a certain way and then offers
to patronize them to a curtain extent. Mr.
Daniel invests all tho money that is to bo
invested; he runs all tho risks that amount
to anything, and ho forfeits all tho work

the privileges granted, in case ho fails to
completo tho water works in the manner
prescribed in ordinance No. 70. That ho
will allow this to take placo that ho will

not have done and would not do, any harm;
