Prom -Mulnu to California tlio press
and politicians of other States are prni
ing tlio new uonttitutiou oi liiinoU a a
model Instrument, and express great stir
priae tliat any right-minded citizen of this
Mate should think of oppo!ng it.
X The old Constitution is admitted on
all tides to be the worst Constitution now
in existence. Xo State in tlio Union could
bo Induced to exchange Constitutions with
Illinois. It is a miserable contrivance, ut
terly uimilted to tlio existing wants of tho
State. And Governor 1'iiliuer declares it
really amounts to no Constitution at all,
as It Is violated with impunltV bv the Leg
islature, und trampled underfoot with con
tempt by tho lobby. '1 ho responsibility
for vicious legislation cannot bo iixed upon
sny department of tho Stato government.
4. Tho new Constitution secures tho
abolishment of the fico mill tax which is
no longer needed to pay otflhe State debt.
Unless it is adopted, this tax, which
amounts to u million a year, will bo col
lected for six yearn longer, and tho money
will bo idled up idle lu the Treasurers'
o ill co in vast sums, or bo tdrreptltionslv
loaned out to speculators on private ac
count. A two-mill taxis $2 on each $1,000
worth or taxable propony. Kvory man
can savo two dollars per annum on every
thousand dollars ho is' worth by voting to
repeal this useless burden. It that not
something worth looking after? How can
nny'voter make money faster for Uvo or
fifteen minutes' work, than by going to tho
polls and voting to abolish this tax 7
5. Tlio Supremo Court from three over
worked Judges to soven, wjll bo worth
hundreds of thousands per annum to suit
ors in dispatch of business and saving of
costs. Tho reinforcement of tbrco judges
ttj lift courts of this country, now over
wljelmned and deluged with cases await
tag trial, will bo worth every year to the
io or Wioflu.o, more man it cost
(be mw Constitution. JTLU relief
Is absolutely required. Tho existing law'n
delays aro beyond further endurance in
this county. Nearly a thousand cases
aro now stacked up in the courts, and
awaiting trial, and most of them will bo ,
procrastinated and postponed for years
unless tho now Constitution is adopted.
'';; iLuxoFs'vnsTitAi, sucnos.
The section of the new constitution Unit i
provides that sovpii per cent, of tho gross
earnings of the Illinois Central railroad
company, shall remain in tho btalq
trensurv. a fund to bo applied only to mo
oxpono. of the State government, should
bo voted down.
"When the business of tho Illinois Con-
trnl shall have been doubled, the soven per
cent. In question will provide for tlio en
tire expenses of tho btnto government.
Three-fourth ofthe earnings of tho road
nro from the thirty-llvo counties traversed
by it, and as tlio company must, in tho
regulation of lior charge, provide for tills
soven per cent., as well as her other ox.
penses, it nccossarily lollows that three
fourths .of the entire sum paid Into tho
treasury, is exacted from tho peoplo of
these thlrty-flvo counties. In othor words,
the tlmo Is near at hand, when tlio business
of tlio counties along tho lino of tho Illi
nois Central will bo taxed with tlirec-fourth
tho expense of running tho state govern
ment, while the "through business" of tho
road will pay tho other fourth.
It may lie said Hint if tho Illinois Cen
tral company were reloned from tho pay
ment of this seven per cent., they would
not correspondingly 1csm.ii their tnrltf of
charges, but put the sum In their own cof
fers, Instead of paying It
Into tho Stato treasury.
This might prove true j but the opponents
of tho section in question do not propose
to rolcaso the company. Tlioy only ask
that tho thirty-live counties whoso
business is, in tho future, to bo taxed witli
tlfooxpensos of tho Stato government, bo
placed upon an equal footing with tho
other counties of tlio State. Tiioy ask that
so much of the' seven per cent., derived
from their own business, ns Is necessary to
pay their .proportion of tlio expenses of
tho government, Unpaid into tho Stato
treasury, and that tho balonco bo
returned to tlio county treasury, whero it
may belong. Tho amount paid can readily
bo determined, and heneo our suggestion
is not only feasible but Jit-t. Hut should
the railroad company be held to the pres
ent arrangement, by u constitutional pro
vision, tlio great burden of which wo
complain will bo saddled upon us for years.
nkuixAT d.vc:.
It is rather warm weather, butnono too
warm for Democrats to begin organization
for tlio fall election. Tho choke of mem

((eorge AlfiiilTownsend in t.ie Chicago Tribune,
"Did you evcrjhoar of Tom Hawkins?1'
said a man of politics to mo yesterday,
'Tom Hawkins is tho greatest duelist in
Kentucky. Ho Is now (Jovornor Steven
son's tobacco Inspector nt Louisville a
handsome man, with n black moustache
and large, glaring black eyes, which sol
doni or never wink, but look out Hko ii

ho Is deadly when holms made up his mind
to eattomobody. Tom is ono of tho best
fellows of his class, tho finished duelist of
tho South, always nice upon points of
honor and prompt to advise anybody to
light whom ho thlukti 1ms been' injured.
His last appenranco in proximity to tlio
'field of honor' was occasioned by a mooted
duel between two Cincinnati editors, which
never cuino to n shot. People who know
him, send for Tom in case of n duel, just
as you send for tho physician and the

he looks ut you with his wide-open eye,
full of ferocity, you are half gono up al

"Thoy dii not convict Henderson, and
Tom never came to trial.
"1 reckon you nevor heard of Tom Hen
derson's connection with ,tho Fitclt und
Stephen A.Douglas trial? That hosnevor
been published, to my knowledge, but it
was n remarkable episode in tlio preface
to tho rebellion. You seo, it was coming
on toward tho political convention! of 185'J,
and Douglas iiad nil the strength, so that
it was hard on to n certainty that ho
would bo nominated and crowd out tlio
Huchnnnn nartv. luot sure Intormation
nf tlio nightly caucuses of Slidoll, Jesse D.
llrlght, Howell Cobb, Hcnjamin, nnd that
faction in Washington, for they met at
Cobb's houso chiclly; and ono day it came
to mo straight ns n wiro tliat they
had determined to lorco Uouglas
Into n fight, nnd that it had boon
proposed that Slidoll should insult
DoliL'lrs In tint driiihiiiu aoluon r thn
Senate, nnd if ho resented It, thoot him
down. I wrote to Douglas ut ouco, but
knowing his habits to well, of leaving let
ters unopened for days and weoks together,
I sent the letter to a friend and com
manded him to make Douglas open it und
peruse it, that lie might bo prepared. And
in tliat letter I said : 'If you aro pushed to
tho wall, telegrapli for Tom. Hawkins, of
Louisville.
"Well, I c.tmo on from tlio South soon
after that, and went up wltn George i'ugh
to seo Douglas. Tlioro wo saw nobody to
pay much attention to us. Douglas seemed
absorbed with something else, and looking
out of his library, across tho hall, I saw
Koger A. Pryor and Albert (S. Drown, of
Mississippi, step into another room". I
asked no questions, but came away and
soon aftorward started for New .York.
When I got to thn Itciay houso tlioro was
but three minutes delay, as tho western
train had just come lu, and I
saw get out of it and step toward the
Washington train- who but Tom. Hawkins
"Tom, ' I cried, "what aro you doing

"What aro you doing uwny from Wash

"Going to Now York.''
"Now York, what? Do you get mo
hero nnd then run oil' to New York ?
Douglas has sent for me. Tho light's on I"
"I'll get oil' my baggage at Haltimoro,"
taid I, "and return to Washington to
night." And with that the trains steamed con
trary ways.
"1 found out tlio matter at Washington
tliat samo evening. The conspirators had
arranged to forco an insult upon Douglas,
and then If lie challenged, lie would lose
tlio vote of the North. If ho refused, no
body in tlio South would touch him. The
creature of the conspirators to insult Doug
las was G. N. Pitch, of Indiana still
alive, I believe and ho had dono
it in executive session the duy
beforo I reached tho city. Doug
las had demanded u retraction or u light,
and Tom Hawkins had been sent for.
"I found tho household nil warm for the
duel. Mrs. Douglas and tho Cuttses and
everybody were bound to seo Stephen out.
His wife said ho might lose tlio Presidency
or anything beforo ho should bo beaten by
Jesso lirigiit and old Duck's myrmidons.
"i no otuet (Mijc iiad been passing all day
botwixt the Huchanan headquarters, in

Tom Hawkins glancing nt him. they say
ho shrank back and turned pale. Then
ho nut out his hand in n sycopuantish way
nnu said:
"Why, Mr. Hawkins, I'm very glad to
seo you."
'Wo all met that night, nnd Tom went,
in place of Pryor, to arrange tho particu
