DuQuoin Tribune: "A town is very
much like an individual. To be flourish
ing, it must have energy and enterprise.
The people in the town should labor for its
prosperity. They should remember that
their individual prosperity depends, to a
large degree upon the character of the
place in which their business is located.
Every public measure should be liberally
supported by all, especially by the business
men. At the present day, there is as much
competition between towns as there is
among persons or similar business enter
prises. A man seeking for a location, will
Invariably select a town that is up to the
times and eagerly in favor of every mod
orn improvement. DuQuoin, although
richer in advanUges than many at her
neighboring towns, is quietly letting them
'get away' with her. This should not be
the case. A town, in these modern times,
and in the face of so much opposition, cau't
afford to be peopled with old fogies or
antedeluvian fossils,' who are continually
'kicking' at every enterprise. This city,
with a little energy and go head-ative uess,
would soon make one of the best towns
south of Spriugfield. Our real estate
weuld greatly increase in value, and every
business enterprise bring better returns.

An old white man named Henshell was
brought into court by Officer Ilogan yes
terday, charged with disorderly conduct.
He was partially deranged and was caught
by the officer late Tuesday night making
violent demonstrations on the street down
town. He had a large pair of scissors in
his hand, with which he had attacked sev
eral persons for various reasons. Eirly iu
the night he was about to make a violent
attack upon the bar-keeper of Mr. Henry
Hasenjager's saloon, because that function
ary wouldn't give him whiskey, but wus
prevented by Magistrate Comings who just
happened in. He promised then to go
home and then to bed, and the officer let
him tro. seointr that he was deranged. But
it seems that he didn't keep his promise,
for ho was heaid afterwards to have threat
ened to stab a woman he met on the sidu
walk, with the shears which ho carried
in his hand, if she did not give
him $200. While waiting for his case to be
called, outside the railing, he entertained a
small crowd with the details of the fall of
man as recorded in Genises and concluded
his rather disconnected relation with the
remark, given with the air of a man who
had just discovered an important truth,
that while Adam was tempted to do wrong
by a woman only, it took the very devil
himself to successfully tempt Eve. Again,
while the court was entering up judgment
of $30 and costs against him, he remarked
that he had been in jail all night and he
must say, that ho had bcn treated better in
the jail than out of it among those who
ought to have been his friends. When tho
court announced that he would either have
to pay $52, go to jail for fifty-two days, or
leave town before daik, he asked for per
mission to "make a few remarka," which
being refused, he bowed deeply and grace
fully, thanked the court for Borne fancied
lavor, expressed the beliet the court was "a
ju-t judge," and then turned upou his heel
and strode out of court with the air of an
accused but vindicated Roman Senator. He
had been in the city for several weeks; ho
came from Memphis, professedly in search
of his wife who, he claimed, had been n
ticed away from his fireside by what he
was pleased to call "the vagaries of Spirit
ualism," and taken refuge in the home of a
family of adhorants of the faith here, Mr
C. Shelley, on Eighth Street. But in this
he was very probably mistaken, though he
annoyed tho family considerably, threaten
cning them with violence of every kind
But though he had been glvm several ov
portunities to carrv out his threats, he did
not attempt to do bo. ne is by this time
probably on his way back to Memphis.

The Dear Prince Who Just Doted on
Seeing the Birthplace of His
Pretty Yankee Bride.
Grand Havkx, Mich., May 14. Tho
greatest excitement prevailed here last
night over a strike of mill hands, and
fears of bloodshed were expressed. Their
wanes were reduced Monduy by the Cut
ler & Savage and White & Friaut Lumber
Mills one shilling a day. Thirty of the
hitter's men struck, and the
men Iu two of tho lour mills ope
rated by Cutler & Savage, quit work on
account of the threats of the thirty strik
ers. A new gang of men were imme
diately raked together by White & Friaut,
and the Sheriff swore iu a large force of
deputies to protect the mill and laborers.
The striking laborers at Cutler & Savage's
asked for a conference with the firm at 2
ji. m. to-day, which was provocative of
much had blood, the company being firm
and refusing to restore wages, saying
they would keep the mills stout down
rather than yield. The men set Are to
Cutler's yard, but the flames were extin
guished. Over 100 men advanced on
White & Friant's mill yesterday and were
met by the proprietors at the head of their
new gang of men, who swore loyalty to
their employers. The strikers carried a
red flag and wesc armed with various
weapons. They were cowed, and
slunk away before the deter
mined attitude of the employers,
but promised to return and wreak their
vengeance on the property at night.
Fearing violence un extra large number
of deputies were sworn In by the Sheriff.
Large crowds of men, armed and other
wise, are parading the streeta. Many of
the men are halt drunk and carry ugly
sticks. A spark will set the mob on Are,
and then no one knows the end. Millions
of dollars' worth of property could be
destroyed here in an hour.
To Gratify Her Prince,
New York, May H. Prince Carlo
Poniatowski, accompanied by his wife,
formerly Miss Maud Kly-Goddard, ar
rived here yesterday from Havre on the
steamer Normandy. A large party of
friends met the conple at the pier.
The Princess was attired in a neat fit
ting traveling suit, while her husband
wore u light check suit and light
overcoat and a light high hat. The
couple were somewhat weary after
their long voyage and went
immediately to the home of the Goddards
iu East Forty-second street. The Prin

In Nice. He is a member of one
of Hussia's most noble families
and Is uu enthusiastic sportsman, lie Is
about thirty-five years old, not quite six
feet tirtl, has nut brown hair and a tine

Their object In coming here is merely to
gratify a desire of the Prince to see the
birthplace of his bride.
THE 1IIJ)IEX II AND.
It is Accidentally Discovered by a Penn
sylvania Trout Fisher.
Waiirkn, Pa., May 14. John Grenier,
an oil well driller, while trout fishing in
the Cherry Grove oil region, found a
hand lying on a rock near the margin of
the brook. It was badly mutilated, and
evidently had been the baud of a large
man. From its appearance it could not
have been severed from the man for more
than a few hours. The only explanation
that can be given is that it must have be
longed to some victim of a nitro
glycerine explosion, but no ex
plosion is known to have occurred
In the vicinity. The Moonlighters, men
who torpedo oil wells at night withnitro
glyceriue against the legal ri-hts of the
Roberts patent, frequently secrete cans
of the material In the woods until they
can remove it without detection to points
where It is wanted for use. It has hap
pened that woodchoppers, in felling trees
In the oil regions, have had them fall
where uitro-glycerine was thus hidden in
the bushes unknown to them, ami fright
lul explosions have followed. An oil
prospector once llred his revolver at
a pheasant which he had flushed
while going through the woods In the
cherry grove region. The bullet struck a
hidden can ot nitro-glyceriue and ex
ploded it, but the distance m which the
man was Ntanding saved him from serious
Tho opinion is that the man whose hand
Greincr found on Saturday exploded a can
of this kind iu some way and was blown
to pieces, the hand being thrown to the
spot where it was discovered. Greincr
made a search, but could find no trace of
An Alderman Killed.
CnicAOO, III., May 14. Jmnes Dacey,
a Democratic ward politician, last night
shot and mortally wounded Alderman
Gaynor in Foley's saloon, No. 87 South
llalstead street. The shooting resulted
from a quarrel over a successor of Alder
man Foley, deceased. An excited mob
followed I)acy to tho station, and only
the prompt Interference of the pohoe
saved Dacey from lynching.
Alderman Gaynor in still alive but sink
ing. The excitement around the police
station latited until daylight and fears are
expressed that the building will be at
tacked when liaynor's death occurs. The
police of all dlstiicts are held in readi
ness for the emergency. Oayuor was
very popular. The mob around the sta
tion last night aggregated ovor 15,000.
