The eL'litlt section of thi act reads us fol-

Tho supreme court of Illinois has twice de

the company pays a cortaln percentage of its

tho state violates her part of tho agreemon
by saying that tho company shall not charge
hut three cents a milo for passenger trans
portation, would not a legal tribunal decido
that tho contract was null and void, and tho

In another column wo publish tho with
drawal of Colonel Kearden from tho canvass
for mavor of this citv. Wo regret that ho
(has s,cen proper to give tho reason ha has.
given for Ins declination or the contest, hinco
tho time when wo llrst became anquainted
with Colonel lleardcn, wo havo ontortstined
towards him sentiments of tho highest regard;
and, whonever occasion offered opportunity,
havo endeavored to advance his interests, both
as a business man and momber of the demo
cratic party. At onetime, when it was whis
pered that u vacancy in tho poitofllce was
I rjbable, unsolicited by tho Colonel wo mndo
every posslblo effort to procure for hint the
position of postmaster. A hen u commander
was needed for the democratic constitutional
guards, wo did everything in our Nwer to
secure tho election of Colonol Iteardeii; and,
lately, when tho question of tho mayoralty
wat agitated, wo were among the first to wait
upon and solicit him to become a candidate,
it was only after tho Colonel had repeatedly
and persistently refused to allow his name to
bo used by his friends that 31 r. Oberly con
cluded to contest the field with Mr. "Wilson;
and when, afterwards, Colonel P.eardon en
tered tho arena, it was with reluctance that
Mr. Oberly engaged in tho contest against
him. During the short, sharp and decisivo
conflict which ensued, the Colonel may have
lcn struck by missies not legitimate In polit
ical warfare, but if ho has received as many
as Mr.Oberly has from the Colon- I's parti'ans
ho is very unfortunate, indeed. Generosity
is not an element In jwlitical excitement, and
the experience. of the past six years in Cairo
hat taught ut thnt he who would serve our
peoplo must necessarily pas through paths in
which, at every step, tho "ungenerous moans
of his opponents will asail and attempt to break 1
him down, throwing before hit footsteps dif
ficulties, calumny and falsehood. The task of
warding off these 'ungenerous means," tram
pling upon diflicultios, refuting calumny and
resenting falsehood, is tho duty of any man
who aspires to become tho executive otllcoof
our rising city, In which is much of tho turbu
lence of faction and too little of that cool and
deliberate Judgment which is tho seed from
which progress springs into vigorous growth.
That Colonel Kearden was availed by ungen
erous mssns; that ho encountered ditllcultles ;
that ho met calumny, we havo no doubt, but
wo assure him that Mr. Oberly regrets that
any laugimgo was ucd against him that has
wounded his feelings and given him pain. Ho
is a gentleman nnd a con.-Utent democrat, and
that any difficulty should grow up between
him and Mr. Oberly is to us a matter of deep
,i: ir.v pa ii a aiiAPiis.
