The distribution of the spoils in Vir
ginia bids fair to cause a ruction between
the radicals and repudiators of that com
monwealth. Lewis, the lieutenant gover
nor elect, says the senatorship was promised
him in the barginthat was made; but the
repudiators are disposed to give the place
to their man Riddleberger. Lewis hss ap
pealed to Arthur, and the president in re-
sponse stuck ins snovei in tne poiiuc&t
manure pile, and is at . work for Lewis.
Arthur says that his understanding of the
bargain was that the radicals were to have
the senator. As Arthur has the distribu
tion of the post offices in his hands it is
probable his understanding will be con
sidered correct, and that Lewis will win.
The railway system of Illinois has
grown up wholly in the past thirty years,
and its employes and their families repre
sent about one-fourteenth of the popula
tion of the state. From the best data to
be obtained, the number of. employes on
the roads of the different companies mak
ing returns to the railroad and warehouse
commission for the year 1880, was 94,561.
Of these, 405 are general officers, 103 as
sistants, 51 civil engineers, 104 master me
chanics, 139 roadmasters, 4,437 clerks,
7,083 machinists, 8,259 conductors, 3,812
engineers, 4,940 firemen snd wipers, 1,600
baggagemen, 4,392 brakemen, 29,169, sec
tion men and foremen, and 34,443 laborers.
The aggregate amount of wages paid is re
ported at $49,427,729. The returns do not
show accurately the number of employes
in Illinois, bnt the best estimates pluce it
at 40,050, while the total amount of wages
paid to tbeso employes is placed at 21,
250,000. From the first biennial report of the
bureau of labor statistics of Illinois, sent
The Bulletin by Secretary of State De
ment, the following facts concerning the
manufacturing interests of Alexander
county appear: In the year 1850 the capi
tal invested in manufactures in this county
was $19,250; the number of hands em
ployed was 34; the value of tho annual
product was $34,861. In 1860 the number

raw material was $140,100; the number of
hands employed was, males, 75; females
15; the annual cost of labor was $27,120;

770; the wages paid amounted to $1 18,440 H
tho valuo of the material consumed was
$409,056 ; and tho value of the products
was $741,815. No report of tho state of
manufacturing in this county in the year
1830 is given.
' Judge Baker pronounced sentence upon
the Rev. Jacob Bradley yesterday to tho
effect that he (the Rev. Jacob) shall be con
fined in the county jail for ninety days, pay
a lino of one hundred dollars and stand
committed until said fine be paid. Tho
reverend gentleman deems this a very harsh
sentence. Though angered because ho was
caught in a slight degression from tho path
of honest, and though his soul revolts at tho
dua of incarceration for such degression,
he can manage to abide ..the ninety days
without being annihiliatod ; but how ho
is going to secure the ono hundred
dollars with which to pay his way out of
prison at the expiration of said ninety days
is1 what bothers his hallowed head some

his fate to his friends; be - believes in the

Commissioner Raum, of the internal
revenue bureau, devotes considerable space
m his last annual report to a discussion of
the question of civil service reform. He
makes some admirable suggestions in re
gard to the appointment of clorks and other
subordinate officers, which, if carried out,
would greatly improve the service. His
recommendations are summarized as fol
lows: 1. The establishment of a term of
office of four years for subordinate officers,
clerks and employes. 2. Requiring all ap
plicants for appointment to be well indorsed
as to character, and to stand a proper ex
amination as to attainments. .3. A tem
porary appointment for one year on trial.
If found worthy, the temporary officer or
clerk to be appointed for three years, the
balance of a regular term of four years. 6.
The officer or clerk to be eligible for reap
pointment. 6. As a stimulus to the exer
cise of marked capacity, fidelity and zeal
in the servico, the pay of ten per cent of
the clerks of each bureau to be increased
flvo percent upon proper certificates at the
commencement of each fiscal year. 7. Pro
motions to be upon merit, ascertained by
examination, and certified to by the head
of the bureau. 8. Causes for removal to be
dishonesty, incapacity, neglect of duty, in
subordination, intemperance, immorality or
inability. 9. Persons retiring, without
fault, to receive an honorable discharge.
10. Subordinate officers, clerks and em
ployes retired, without fault, after a service
of four years, to receive retiring pay equal
to one month's pay for each year, and pro
rata for oach fraction of a year of service.

the Willis machine is operated by THE
Bulletin." . The Bulletin was not aware
that it was burdened with a "Willis
mower," capable of doing such terrible
work as attributed to it by lhe Democrat.
The editor of Ttie Bulletin is not tho
bloody minded "operator" of any death
dealing machine. He is not a consumer of
raw meats, quivering and bloody; he does
not quaff a pint of beef gore every morn
ing, nor is he a wild eyed raving monster,
finding delight only in attempting to hurl
republicans over battlements and 'things.
On the contrary he is a vegetarian eats
nothing but carrot soup and hot-house
fruits; he is a mild-eyed, gentle mannered,
perfectly harmless and not very ponderous
fellow, who finds delight in peace and in
progressive democracy. Thereforo The
Bulletin editor is not disappointed be-
causehe drew no blood from Pavey, Lind
y, the Sentinel, etc.; but feels gratified bo-
cause he did not. ' But the Democrat says
that Tub Bulletin is working
the Willis machine at this end of
the district. The Democrat is mistaken.
Tub Bulletin is a democratic paper. It
is owned, operated and edited by good
democrats; it would like to see a democrat
appointed as internal revenue collector, and
could name a number of very good gcntlo-
men of that political faith who would per
form the duties of the office honestly and
efficiently. However, since the powers that
he cannot bo prevailed upon to cater to The
Bulletin's wishes in this respect, it is
not going to brood in silence of the great
wrong; but will act the part of tho peo
ple's watch dog, sounding tho note of
alarm when unworthy republicans con
spire to aspire to the positions held by man
who have tipped tho golden scale on the
right sido. And shall Tub Bulletin
therefore be charged with applying the
motive power, or directing tho movements
of the republican machine in this end of
the stotof "Not for Joe." Tub Bulletin
knows a thing or two; so does Col. Willis,
and both are equally confident that neither
tho man of moral blindness, nor the cam
paign fund manipulator, stand a ghost of a
show in connection with tho internal reve
nue collectorsbip, in this district. .
A boat pamphlet entitled "Care of the
Insane," by Dr. n. Wardnor, of the Anna
insane asylum, has reached this office. The
writer discusses very briefly tho manner in
which the difficulties resulting from the re
cent partial destruction by firo of the asylum
wore overcome. Of the temporary building
erected ' to accommodate the patients he
says: "Within a distance to make it read
ily accessible to the domestlo department
of tho hospital, a 1 temporary building of
one story was erected in the form 6f a Cross,
with very long arms." The hoad and fixty

hundred and fifty ' feet long, and twenty
eight feet wide. . At the end of each wing,
fartberest from the center building, are six
well-ventilated, single or seclusive rooms,
for such cases as might be, required to be
separated from the rest. All the remain
ing portion of the wing being used as one
long dormitory. '. A room used for baths,
lavoratory and water closet was built out
from the rear side of the angle of junction
with the center building. The center
building is twenty-eight feet wide and one
hundred and twenty-two feet long, and is
divided into three apartments : an attend
ant's room, a clothing room, which is also a
common connecting hall, and a large com
mon dining room! At the rear side of
each wing is a courtyard one hundred and
sixty-four . feet . long by one hundred and
forty feet wide, enclosed by a board fence
high enough to prevent tho demented pa
tionta from wandering from the premises.
A door from the wing opening into the j
court yard is kept open during the day
time, ' and the patients may pass at will
aither way. Seventy-five patients were as

that after the' aBvlum nropor had been re- J 1 '
constructed, the temporary building should
bo again torn down and the' material wed k
in flnishiug thtf hospital ; but the effects
upou ,the patients; kept in the temporary
building were so favorable, that the doctor
has (decided to let it remain and use it in
stead of the aBylum proptV in the summer
time. " Some of the good effacis upon ' the
patients wero 'that "they lost the sickly
palor usually observed among patients
ket within walls. The ample space left
each man free to exercise in his own pecu
liar way without infringing upon the priv
ileges of his neighbors; and . consequently
the irritation 1 and 1 assaults, especially
among' the epileptic, provoked by limited
quarters and personal conduct have been
reduced :to the inlntmuia.",: The doctor
