A STATE CONVENTION.
There is loud complaining among the
merchants aud citizens generally who are
interested in the shipment of freights of
any kind by rail,, because of the manner in
which the lately adopted schedule of freight
rates established by the state board of rail
road and warehouse commissioners, ope
rates. Tho complaints are very general
and very loud throughout the state, and
both the railroad companies
and the board aro denounced
for conniving to rob tho people.
As an instance of the result of the new
Bchedulo, Carmi may be cited. Before the
adoption of this tariff," says tho Carmi
Times, "the L. & N. carried staves to St.
Louis from this station at $17.50 per car,
while now, under the legal rate, which is
enforced by thocompany, the charge is $83.
Tho charges for lumber, stock, flour, etc.
are also considerably increased. As this ia
(itxnitall there is to bring money into this
section at present, it works a great hard
ship." As stated, this is but one instance;
the same complaints have gone up from a
largo number of other cities n the
state, Cairo excepted, and the
merchants, shippers and citizens in some
places have held mass meetings, with a
view to taking some formal action to re
lieve them fruru the wrong complained of.
Prompted by a desiro to assist the ship
pers of tho state in their efforts to correct
tho wrong, the National Farmer's Alliance,
having its head-quarters at Chicago, has is-
sued the following call for a state conven
"All citizens of Illinois who are in
favor of compelling the railroad corpora
tions duina; business within this state, to
comply with the laws, and of securing a
schedule of rates that will be exqitable to
all parties aud industries, are invited to
meet in convention &t tho stato house in
Springfield, on Wednesday, March 15 tb,
1882, lor the purpoao of organizing the
state and placing every county in chargo
of an intelligent, energetic and discreet
couimitteo, to detect, report aud prosecute
cvory violation of tho laws by tho corpora
tions and to adopt such measures as shall
insure justice being done the people by
the agents of tho law who have its enforce
ment in hand.
In view cf tho fact that the railroad cor
porations have for ytars been openly disre
garding and defying the law, and are to
day fixing their own rates regardless of
legal provisions, except when their inter
ests are fully served by a schedule of rates,
which in many respects is unjust to tho
shippor, and must be revised; that they
have been and are discriminating against
individuals, communities and industries;
that they have been and are ovading taxa
tion and by such and various other ways
shouldering upon our citizens on indirect
burden of taxation which annually amounts
to from one hundred to throe hundred dol
lars per capita, this call for a convention in
the interest of simple justice and the su
premacy of law, should enlist tho sympathy
and co-oporation of every law-abiding
Therefor all associations that are in favor
of accomplishing the objects named in this
call, and all citizons who believe that our
laws should bo respected by rich corpora
tions as well as by individuals, and who bo

railroad companies should reBpoct, are urged

associations, and counties and townships are
requested to mcot in convention at some
convenient place, on Wednesday, March 8th,

optional with each meeting) to represent

large a number as possible, to the end that
the selection of county committees may bo
made from the best material in the state,

Tke Missing Link.
Professor E. D. Cope has secured the
skull of an extinct monkey which seems
to fulfill in a remarkable degree the con
ditions of tho mining link between man
and tho lower animals. It is not larger
than tho skull of a small ground squir
rel, and belongs to a species of marmoso,
It was found in tho valley of tho Big
Horn river,' Wyoming territory. Tho
professor says: "Tho skull is remarka
bly similar in miniature, of course to
the human skull. Tho brain space is
remarkably large, and is, in fact, several
times larger than the brain space of any
of the skeletons of animals of the same '
period of time. The characteristics of
the formation of the human skull aro
cloarly defined so clearly as to be re
markable. The teeth aro almost the
same as human teeth, while the jaw has
many strong points of similarity. I con
sider this skull as tho earliest indication
of tho existence of man. It is a new
species of a similar class, and has hith
erto been unknown to scientists."
A Touching Romance.
A young girl came, one day, to tho
Mont-de-Pieto of Paris, to pawn & bun
dle of clothes upon which they gave her
only three francs. For fifteen years sho
came regularly to pay the interest of afew
centimes, not having sufficient to redeem
tho clothes. Tho administration, struck
by tho care that she took to preserve
this little deposit of clothing, sought in
formation concerning her, aud learned
that working uiieensinglv at her poor
little den, this ouvrkrc in liuou, good
and honest, was scarce able to earn her
daily living, and had never been ablo
to raise threo francs to redeem her littlo
bundle. There was evidently in this
little woman, ho laborious and so good,
a noble courage which took its source
in noble sentiments ; and she was asked
to take, without payment, tho modest
bundle of which she had been so long
deprived. Then thev comprehended tho
beautiful spirit of this unfortunate-. Tho
little bundle was a petticoat and a
woman's fichu of some cheap stuff. As
it was opened, sho took tho things in
both hands and covered them with kissos
and tears. This was all that was left to
her by her poor mother, who had died
fifteen years ago, and to preserve theso
precious relics sho had borno her pious
tribute, as one places flowers upon tho
tomb of a loved one on an anniversary.
' The Lower Classes.
Who aro they P The toiling millions,
the laboring man and woman, tho
farmer, tho mochanic, tho artisan, the
inventor, tho producer P Far from it.
Theso aro nature's nobility. No matter
if they aro high or low in station, rich
or poor in pelf, conspicuous or humblo
in position, they are surely imper circles
in tho order of nature, whatever tho
factdiious distinctions of society, fash-
ionablo or unfashionable, decree. It is
not low, it is tho highest duty, privilege
and pleasure for tho groat man and
high-souled woman to earn what thev
oossess, to work their own way through
lifo, to bo tho architects of their own
fortunes. Some may rank tho classes
wo have alluded to as only relatively
low, nud, in fact, tho middling classes.
We insist they are absolutely tho very
highest. If there be a class of human
beings on earth who may be properly
denominated low, it is that class who
speud without earning, who consume 1
without producing, who dissipate on the
earnings of their fathers or relatives,
