It is stated that Guiteau did not at

looking fellow, who had it intimated to the
assassin through Mr. Scoville that it would
be very d:ingeroU9 for Guiteau to abuse his
wife. The assassin, as has been frequently
shown, is an arrant coward, and the inti
mation that he would be punished had a
very good effect on him.

Timothy O. Howe, of Wisconsin, was
nominated aud confirmed Tuesday as post
master general. Mr. nowe served three
full terms in the United States senate from
1861 to 1879 and in that long time his
name was never connected with a dishonest
scheme or proposition of any kidd. , He
has always been a radical republican in
politics. He was one of the first to protest
against the policy of Mr. Hayes, and his
selection of Mr. Key as a member of his
cabinet. He will be 66 years old in Feb
ruary. The following dispatch was received at

The movement against the payment of
rent is extending in Ireland. It is regard
ed in land leagu3 circles as a crime to apply
even to the land court. Lists of persons
suspected of having paid rent are posted on
the chapels and other places where they are
likely to be seen. No sooner ore such
notices torn down by the police than they
are again posted up. Lords Donougbmore
and Inchiquin are about to quit their resi
dences in Ireland on account of the anti
landlord feeling. The Irish policemen are
much dissatisfied at the proposition to add
to their ranks soldiers and militiamen whose
terms have expired. A policeman's strike
is apprehended. Some of the lady land
leaguers are threatened with arrest. Un

Tbo ceremony observed at the funeral
of young John Beard was very interesting
and impressive. Rev. B.Y. George con
ducted religious services at tho home of
deceased, on Ninth street, before the fun
eral started. The remains were conducted
from tho house to the train, and from tho
train to the grave, and buried, with military
honors. Tho procession left tho house in
the following rder: Martial band; an
escort of eight members of tho company,
commanded by Corporal Dugan; six pall
bearers, commanded by Sergent W. Mc
Ewen;Rev. B.Y. George and Dr'. Gordon;
tho deceased's relatives; then the remainder
of tho company, followed by citizens. At
tho cemetery, after the remains had been
lowered into the gravo with impressive re
ligious services conducted by Rev. George,
the military escort of eight men fired three
rounds over tho open grave, which con
cluded the ceremony.

Reform hall presented a very lively
picture nearly all day yesterday, although
tho weather was against the managers.
People from every part of tho city wore
thcro, admiring the display of beautiful
things and spending an hour or two in tho
agreeable company of friends. The supper
was especially well patronized,it is becoming
more popular as people begin to find out its
component parts. The ladies have gono to
much trouble and expense to make the sup
per tho principal feature of tho , occasion,
and they have succeeded remarkably well;
for tho six tables were filled last evening
with a large variety of the choicest produc
tions of tho art of cookery, and all present
did full justice' to them all. The' ladles of
the church were very attuntivo to their
guests ; they attended promptly and smiling
ly to every wanfy and ' made all feel that
thelrpToseoce gave pleasure to the managers.

The caso of C. F. Bowers vs, Jacob
Lohning occupied nearly the entire time of
the circuit court yesterday. The court
found time to pronounco sentence upon
Stephen Parker, the negro accomplice of
the Rev. Jacob Bradly. According to
this sentence Parker is to remain in tbe
couuty jail for thirty'dayB, pay a fine of
twenty-five dollars ami stand committed
until tho fine is paid. Stephen takes his
sentence even more philosophically than
tbe vcrsatilo Jacob. He can perhaps, not
adapt himself so easily to every passing
condition as can the man of prayer and
subscription papers ;but he is cool, and con.
gratulates himself upon tho fact that bis
sentence is less severe than that of his re
ligious cotemporary in sin. He has not
the consolation coming from the sympathy
of a score or mote of "bretheren and sis
tering" and of an abiding faith in tho Rev.
J acob's diety, who will movetho hearts and
open the pursos of tho white sjjplks to pay
the Rev. Jacob's fine whon his term of im
prisonment shall have expired; but ho has
the peaco of mind resulting from utter in
difference of what the future may have in
store for him. So much for tho difference
in the character of thieves.
Although tho ships have been sailing
in and out of the Mississippi through the
jetty channel for 1 these many years, and
although the engineer officer detailed by
the government has been certifying that
there was a 30-foot channel through the
jetties, and that the 26-foot channel was
fall 200 feet wide, there are two ancient
mariners of New Orleans, named Leathers
anil Cowdin, who have steadily refused to
accept this evidence, and who have insisted
that they were not to te imposed on by it.
Not having much of anything else to do
but to talk, they talked a good deal, and
they talked so loud and they talked so
long that last week a committee of the
Merchants' Exchange seized them and car
ried them down to the jetties to make
soundings for themselves under the eyes of
the committee. This they did under pro
test, each ancient mariner being allowed to
choose his own lead line and to spit upon
the lead himself. The committee report
that they found at least a depth of 26 feet in
tho 26-foot channel and no bottom in the
30-foot channel, as tbe sounding lines were
only 40 feet long. The ancient mariners
have not been heard from, but it is sup
posed that they are now endeavoring to
prove an alibi.
Night before last the foreman of The
Bulletin newsroom concluded that the
sense of two of the editor's efforts could
be improved upon and he proceeded to
make the improvements as he deemed
proper. Tbe result was that the Centralia
Democrat was made to intimate that "Pa-
vey would take the cake," if it were not
for his too frequent indulgence in liquid
corn; that Logan and Cullom and Pavey
were standing up in a pint of beef gore,
and fell overboard into tho carrot soup, out
of which they wire drawn by tho Willis
mower, operated by The Bulletin, assist
ed by Mr. James Law". Mr. George Stetler
was represented as having taken aboard of
himself too much of the Willis machine
which caused him to fall over the "battle
ments" into the "republican machine"
from which he "drew blood" and "snakes"
for the amusement of "progressive democ
racy" and to tho disgust of "unworthy re
publicans" who "conspire" to steal the
"golden scale." The foreman insists that
his arrangement of the item was a great im
provement upon tho original version and
we will not now take the trouble to deny
the correctness of his claim.
About 3 o'clock yesterday morning
some one broke into the clothing establish
ment of Mr. Wm. Werner, at the corner of
Eighth street and Commercial Bvenue, and
carried off a suit of clothes, a largo black
leathern sutchel and somo other things,
valued in all at about fifty dollars. Tho
thief gained entrance by prying open the
shutters of the sido window on Eighth
street, breaking a light in tho upper sash
so as to remove a stick which was braced
between tho lower sash and the casing
abovo and then opened the lower sash,
which permitted very free ingress. Watch
man Mcrriman saw tho fellow going down
the street with tho clothing and satchel;
but supposed him to bo some citizen on
his wuy to the train and did not deem it
necessary to interfere with him. A certain
tailor who has been in the employ of ono
of our merchant tailoring establishments
for a short time is suspected of the bur
glary, and not without somo reason. He
camo into tho store of Mr. Werner yester
day forenoon and displaying a photograph,
said, "that's tho girl of tho follow that
stole your goods. I know m and I can
find him." Nobody in the house knew
who had committed the deed, and neither
did any one clso but the guilty party and
his pals, if he had any, Therefore, tho
fact that this tailor pretended to know tho
burglar gives strong ground for suspecting
that he himself was tho guilty party and
sought, in a very blundering manner to
throw suspicion on to some ono elso. Chief
Meyers and Officers Mahanny and Olmsted
investigated the caso and found that the
tailor had left his former placo of employ
ment and also his boarding bouio several
days ago and had mysteriously disappeared.
The officers are still on tho track, how
over, and will run the follow down la lit
tle while If he daros to remain in tho city.

Tho editor of the Springfield Monitor,
who always denounces wrong in a raving
yet forcible manner, has this to say about
tho traffic in adulterated butter:
"Butterine is the vile compound upon
which unscrupulous Chicago manufacturers
are getting rich, and tbe grocer who would
sell it knowingly, should bo dealt with ac
cording to law if there is any to reach
mm, ana Governor Cullom says there is
and if there is no law, Judge Lynch should
decido on tar and feathers. Of all vile pois
ons to the human being, this is the worst.
It is made by mixing from 60 to 75 per
cent of lard oil with country butter. We
understand one of the ways of introducing
this vile compound is by personating farm
ers with fresh country butter. Arrest the
wretches at oncer
Mr. Kidd has evidently not sought for
law upon tho subject, or ho would, perhaps,
not have been so quick to suggest Judge
LyDch as a proper parson to deal with tho
matter and with the men guilty of the
rong of which ho complains. The last
gonoral assembly passed a houso bill num
bered 653, introduced by Mr. James Pol
lock, of Lake county, entitled an act to pre
vent the adulteration of butter aud chocso.
This bill was duly passed; approved Juno
1st, and has been in force since July 1st.
"Whoever manufactures out of any olea-
genous substances, or any compound of the
same other than ' that produced from un
adulterated milk, or cream from tho same,
any articlo designed to take the place of
butter and cheese, produced from puro,
unadulterated milk, or cream of tho same,
or give to any person the sumo as an articlo
of food, as butter or cheese, shall, on con
viction thereof, be finod not less than
twenty-five dollars nor moro than two hun
This it seems, would bo sufficient to sup
press the infamous traffic in the filthy and
unhealthy stuff called by such a multiplic
ity of names ending in "ino," and offered to
the consumers of butter as a substitute for
that articlo. But it may bo claimed that
this law refers only to those who "manu
facture and soil," and not to those who mere
ly sell. Admitting that this law will bear
such a construction, which doos not seem
probable, there is yet another which is moro
to the point. It is a bill introduced In tho
house by Hon, Oliver P. i Chisholm,
of Kane county, entitlod "an act to pre
vent and punish the adultoratlon of ar
ticles of food and the salo theroof when
adulterated." It was also approved June
1st and baa been ia force slnoe July 1st. A
portion of section four of this', law is all
