Speeches were made by

Several members of the committee
having in charge the Ideal League social
party at Uartman's hall next Tuesday, who
have been interviewed upon the subject,
state that it is the understanding of the
committee that only these holding invita

that, had it been the intention to give a
public entertainment, there would have
been no need of issuing invitations to both
ladies and gentlemen.
All is yet quiet on the Texas and St.
Louis road. The men seem to understaad
that nothing whatever could be gained by

stopped work aDd united in demanding
pay or gore. Receiver Woodward has not
yet returned from his trip down the road.
It is understood that the object of his trip
is to collect the inventories, preparatory to
compiling them for the court.
The Eunice Goodrich troupe held forth
at the Opera house last night, in "Wanted
a Husband." The play was very light com
edy, combining humor and sentiment
with pleasant effect. It was pro
duced to the evident satisfaction of the au
dience which was very fair in numbers.
The company carries its own orchestra
whose music last night called forth repeated
applause. This afternoon "Country Girl"
will be produced, and to-night, "American
Born," pieces which bare drawn and enter
tained large, cultured audiences elsewhsrs.
Miss Goodrich is perhaps one of the most
natural and captivating little actresses on
the stage in the characters she undertakes.
A little white woman, apparently a
confirmed victim of wretchedness and dis
ease, has been in the city for some days
begapng money, etc., from everybody, at
borne or in the streets. She has proved
herself a very successful beggar, too. It is
estimated by parties who should know
that she collected over five dollars one day
this week, several citizens giving a dollar
eaeb, besides clothing, victuals, etc Chief
Myers has investigated her case and pro
nounces her an imposter, a professional beg
gar, who is neither sick, nor lame, nor
much in need of charitable aid. It is
against such people as this womsn that an
organization such as is proposed to be
ffected at Temperance hall this afternoon,
can and will protect the public.
Invitations for the grandest ball of the
season are out. It is to be a "full dress
party," at The Halliday, February 21st. It
is to be the first "full dress ball" given
here after many years and will doubtless do
honor to those who have it in charge.
Apropos of this event it may be of interest
to know that the "general characteristics"
of the new dress suits for gentlemen which
have taken the place of the black dress,
swallow-tailed coat which served for all
occasions are described is follows: For
the opera, theatre or dinners black, blue,
brown or dark green clothes are te be worn,
For balls and parties bright colors, such as
royal purple, magenta, plumb and scarlet.
The aloping cut of the coat with the rolled
collar ia eminently graceful. The coat and
pants will be of the same material with
vestings of white silk or satin embroidered
or figured chamois cloth; the shirt will be
finished with a ruffle about half an inch in
width, and instead ol the white tie hitherto
worn with it will be one of pale tinted
silk. About fifty of those suits were worn
at the Vanderbilt reception in New York,
in combinations of royal purple, msgenta,
plum, scarlet, mulberry and garnet, making
an effect that "must be seen to be appreci
Probably one of the nicest little parlor
entertainments of this week, and which
has hitherto escaped merited notice in the
press, was the celebration of the H7th anni
vemry of the birthday of Thomas Paine,
at the residence of Mr. Jacob Martin, last
Tuesday. Although there are many liberal
minded people amantr us. this was the first
demonstration of any note given by any of
them tor a number of years back and the
Impression was rapidly gaining ground,
mat "tne doctrine ef Christ and him cruci
fied" held exclusive sway in the minds of
all here. The anniversary was this time
perhsps more generally celebrated in the
country at large than it had been in former
years, but it could not have been more fit
tingly and handsomely observed than it
was here. The Martin residence, ordinari
ly one of the most elegant in the city, was
especiall decorated for the occasion. Mot
toes from the several works of Thomas
Paine, in fancy letterj, ornamented the
walls. "Thomas Paine" was suspended in
gilt letters from the arch of the bay win
dow, aod on either side of the window were
the figures "1737" snd "1884." "The Age
of Reason" and the names of other works
that have outlined thousands of so-called
"answers," "The world is my country, to do
good my religion" and another sentences
powerful in thought and noble in senti
ment, were written upon the walls in a very
attractive and pleasing style. The pro
gramme prepared for the occasion was
also elaborate and interesting. It was
opened with music by Mr. and Mrs. E. E.
Ellis. Mrs. Martin had prepared an esisy
entitled "Thomas Paine," which was read
by Mrs. Ellis, snd which did full justice to
the well-known literary ability of the
writer. Mr. Paul G. Schuh sang a solo in
that rich voice for which he is noted among
our singers, accompanied on the piano by
Mrs. Ellis. Mr. G. W. Morse followed with
a half hour's talk and he opened the way
for a ssries very interesting little speeches
from nearly all present. The exercises
closed with instrumental music by Mrs
Ellis and then the company partook of a
floe supper during which .touts and senti
ments were freely given to the delight of
A Poor Man's Confidence.

CHANGE OF SCHOOL BOOKS.
Cairo, III., Jan. 29tb, 1884.
Mr. Editor: Can vou tell m h. th
books in our schools are so constantly
changed and new ones substituted. This is
a big tax, these dull times, on a poor man;
besides a man of family saves up the books
used by the elder members, expecting that
they would do the other children. Now,
he finds that thev are of no use to him As
this is a matter of public interest, and one
in which the people of the town are inter
ested, I think it is due to the people that an
explanation should be given by the parties
causing the change.
A Working Man.
The school board at a recent meeting or
dered that Quackenbaugh's Rhetoric be ex
changed for Kellogg's, and Gray's Algebra
for Wentworth's. It also ordered that two
new books be introduced, Houston's physi
cal geography and Avery's natural philoso
phy. These changes and additions affect
only the higher classes in the high school
room, the B, C and D classes. The changes
and additions were made after thorough in
vestigation byla committee of the board ap
pointed for the purpose, and upon tbe ur
gent recommendation of the superintendent.
Prof. Armitage convinced the committee by
comparisons that tbe old books were far in
ferior to tbe substitutes proposed to be in
troduced, and also of tha need of tbe two
new ones introduced, and the committee re
ported accordingly to the board which con
curred in the recommendations of the com
mittee. The board did not act hastily nor
without positive knowledge that it was act
ing for the good of the school. There
have been very few chancres of
books in our schools not enough
to give reasonable gronnd for complaint,
even from workingmen in moderate circum
stances. Besides, the eld books tor which
new ones are introduced, are redeemed at
half their original cost, in part payment for
the new ones. "A working man's" idea of
making the same books do lor a whole
family of children, one after the other, is
carrying economy to the extreme. There is
mprovement from time to time in books
as in sewing machines. Old fogyism in
everything is bad, but in our schools it
would be worse. Family relics, especially
in the form of school books, are interesting
and appropriate enough on the the top shelf
in the chimney corner or some other place
of safety; but in our schools they are sadly
out of place. Give our children new books,
with crisp leaves and reliable information
luciaiy stated, a scnool boy regards a new
book with as much interest as he does his
new boots, and hia interest wanes in both
alike as they grow old, dirty aod ragged.
"What is heaven's best gift to man!"' she
asked, sweetly smiling on him. "Dr. Bull's
Cough syrup, he replied with prudence. He
had just been cured by it ef a bad cold.

Saw Yore, Feb. 1. A Berlin letter
says: Prof. Vlrehow, the greatest authori
ty on medical tolenoe n the world, spoke
to your correspondent to-day tery freely
on tbe subjeot of the prohibition of Ameri
can pork by the German Government. Be
ing a free-trader, be said he had always
been strenuously opposed to tbe prohibition,
not only beoause It was not based on
"sanitary" reasons, but beoause It was
passed to tbe detriment of the poorer classes
of tbe country. Prof. Vlrohow said,
among other tblngsi "This prohibitory
measure Is a step in the progress of
agrarian supremacy la the German Govern
ment at the present time. At this moment
our Government has an entirely agrarian
character. Agricultural InUrtsU are para
mount, and we do not entertain muoh
hope of seeing matters take a different turn
for-eome tiro a to come. The prohibition
of American pork was an agrarian (agri
cultural) measure purely. As It was la-
tended we should eat our own Desk it was
necessary to exalude American (brk, a:id
tbe excuse wa readily found. The turn
of tprood beet will probably cams next, as
tbe "sanitary" theory oaa equally well be
applied to It beoause of the few oases of
lead-polsonlag that have occurred after
eating It. The power given to tbe Bundes-
rath to prohibit artloles of consumption
alleged to be injurious to health was never
intended to oov ir canes of temporary epi
demics, suob as yellow fever, and the
legality of making the measure of prohibi
tion permanent is questionable. But if
the Bundesrath wishes to be logical in Its
legislation it ought to go still further aod
Issue a ukase that ao more pig shall be
grown in Germany.
"At this moment we are far more in
danger of beoomlog infeoted from neigh
boring Saxony than from tnit aistani
Amerloa. It would be wise for tbe Amer
ican government to have inspectors of pork
for export, as it has for looal ooutumpuon,
perhaps; but the main burden ef Inspec
tion must alwas remain In the oouatry im
porting tbe toed."
The Bundesrath, Prof. Vlrohov said, do
not appear to have troubled themselves to
ask for medloa! or solentiflo evidence on tbe
matter before them. They passed the
ordinance, whloh subsequently received tbe
Emperor's signature, not In tbe Interest of
sanitary precautions, but, as Prof. Vlr
ehow said to me, la the Interests of the
great land-owners, whose profits had been
so seriously diminished by the importation
of cheap food from tbe United States.

The shooting of Mr. Blood by Policeman
Hickey, la a crowded thoroughfare,
followed as It was by the criminal use of
tbe revolver at the hands of Policeman
Condon, an hour latter ha aroused
public sentiment In this city against a sys
tem that bas steadily grown because per
mltted to go unnoticed. These canes are
tbe general topic of conversation among all
classes, but especially with those citizens
who are able to appreciate tbe exceeding
great danger of allowing tbe polloe depart
ment to constitute itself judge, Jury and
executioner. Tbe prevalent opinion Is thaf
roiiceman Hickey should Da maje an ex
ample of, and that Polloeman Condon's
case should have a thorough investiga
tion, a m
always has been opposed to promiscuous
pistol shooting on the part of policemen,
and as a consequence Officer Hickey ha
been suspended from duty until his cue
can be investigated. Tbe Third District
case U also being inquired Into. Tbe chief
does not thin H that Officer Condon should
be blamed for shooting Burns, who bears a
reputation to Invite a shot In the event of
bis attempting to evade arrest, but 1 not
willing to exoulpate him until be ascertains
all tbe faots In the case.
Capt. Fruoble, of the Central District,
also expressed himself stroaf ly on this sub

"Thev shall not use their baton or pistol

Tbe captain added tbat charges had been

few Irresponsible penny-a-liners who find
It easier to sit In their iBoes and grind out
sensational stories without foundation tban
to hustle around and look for actual news,
amuse themselves by telling tremendous
tales about the Immorality of members of
Congress, but tbe fact is that tbo average
Congressman Is quite a respectable person,
and duly sober. "I think," said a mem
ber of this Congress, who bad been here as
a Congressman years ago, "tbat there Is
much less drinking In this Congress than
there used to be a few years ago, Tbat Is,
1 mean drinking of whisky or anything of
that nature. I see a good many members
drinking hot water at the hot water
fountain adjoining the House, but very
little of anything else. . Now, It used to
be a very oornmon thing to see
Congressmen drinking, Indeed so oorn
