As may bo seen from a call published
elsewheie, the Democrats of the thirty-four
counties composing this, the Fourth Appel
late Court District and tho Southern Grand
Division of Illinois, are to meet in conven
tion at Centralia on Wednesday, Miy 21st,
to nominate a cendidato for Supreme Court
Clerk, a candidate fur Appellate Court
Clerk and to select a new Central Commit
tee. Another interesting fact in connection
with tho probable reduction of the number
ofBaloons in the city next month and the
increase ot revenue from those that remain,
is that, of the eighteen or twenty who have
so far given positive assurances f a deter
mination to retire, not a single one will
leavo the house in which he has done busi
ness unoccupied not a house will be emp
tied by reason of the reduction. All of
tlum will continue to occupy the houses in
which they carried on the liquor business
and nearly all of thorn will coutinue in
some other business. Thus high licens,
pure and simple, unadulterated by that 1"j0
beer sop, is an unadulterated blessing to
"Pinch" made a desperate effort
Thursday night to redeem itself after a
long spell of comparative quiet that is not
its normal state. Six of its female deniz-;n,
thinking perhaps that it wa3 about time to
let the public know that "Pinch" was still
"on deck," made the neighborhood ring
while they engaged in a general rougti and
tumble fight. Officers Mahauny, Boughner
and Ilogan took charge of them and Mag
istrate Comings yesterday fined the disturb
ers $5 and costs each, which all but two of
them paid or will pay. The city treasurer
will get nearly as much out of this night's
work as was gotten out of all the tines
assessed by the Magistrate during all last
month, which was only 21.
The B. & O. is out with another decid
ed novelty, this time in the shape of a book
of travel, which is an unique as it is artis
tic. It is an entirely new departure in
book making, the different pages disclos
ing a most extended variety of tints, while
the margin, usually blank, is in this in
stance completely taken up with studies iu
blending colors. The ingenuity of clever
artihts have been demonstrated in capitally
drawn creatures not broad, but laughably
effective of almost every imaginable phase
of life, and, on the whole, it may truly be
sai 1 to be totally unlike any other publica
tion ever issued. It is entitled "On Pic
turesque B. & 0., and General Passenger
Agent Lord, at Baltimore, will, with his
accustomed kindness forward by mail upon
The "Atonement" was Rev. Mr. Whit
ney's subject last tvening at the Baptist
Church, and at the close of tlx sermon
which was delivered in his usual earnest
and forcible manner, four or five persons
rose for prayers. One lady united with
the church by letter. Rev. Mr. Whitney
returns to Carbondale to-day to fill appoint
ments there to-morrow, but the rivival
meetings here will be continued. Prayer
meeting at 3:30 this afternoon, but no ser
vices this evening. Rev. John F. Eden,
pastor, will preach at the usual hours to
morrow, and Rev. L. II. Shuck, of Paducah,
Ky., late of Charleston, S. C, will be here
Monday to conduct the meetings during
the week. He is said to be an able and
papular minister, and it is hoped that the
interest manifested in the meetings this
week will be continue ! and increased.
-By order of Chairman Thos. W. Shields,
of the County Democratic Central Commit
tee, Secretary B.F. Blake has issued notioes
to the members of said oinmittee to meet
next Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock, at the
office of Comptroller M. J. Howley in this
city, for the purpose of selecting the time
and place for holding tho County Democrat
ic Convention. The committee will decide
whether tho convention shall be composed
of delegates selected at primaries or wheth
er it shall be simply a mass convention as
heretofore; also whether the convention
shall select delegates to ell the other con
ventions, or only to the State Convention
leavirg those to tho Congressional and Ben
atonal conventions to U selected by a sec

however, that no primaries will be held and

A careful canvass made by Chief
Myers several days ago, with a view to as

will continue in business under tho new
rate of license will pay on the first of next
month from nineteen to twenty thousand
dollars, or considerably more than double
the amount received from sixty-four last
year. The money will be due generally
from the more well-to-do saloon-keepers,
though sev. r il who would be well abb' U

probable, therefore, that there will be little

The large watir tank at the Illinois
Central round-house up town bursted yet

water, and the engineer, Tom Jennings,
was tending the supply pipe when ttie
hoops of the tank suddenly bursted, and
tho timbers were thrown outward ith
considerable force by the water. Jennings
was knocked from the engine by seme of

of equal bight. The two men have no bones
broken and are not seriously injured.

THE LI1TLE DUCHESS.
The Williams Dramatic Company played
to a good audience in our Opera IIouso last
night. The play was written by Mr. Wil
linins, the manager, and this is the first
season it has been on the boards. The
"Little Duchess" is a frolicsome happy-go-lucky
girl who afterwards turns out to bo a
real duchess. Matie Williams plays the
part well, and called fourth the applause
of the people at every turn in the long road
which tho little duchess had to travel. Mrs.
Williams has a sweet, soft, girlish voice and
splendid action. Wichita Daily Times.
