Printers1 Isk remarks that doing
business among a reading public
without advertising is a good deal
like climbing the stairs of a 20-story
building when tne elevator is run
ning. The Japanese army is said to be a
strange military aggregation from a
western point of view. The men
march without music or flags; they
awake without the reveille: they go
to bed and to meals without bugle
calls, and, barring their intense
firide of country, seem to be abso

The Stat A editor' Report.
Auditor of Public Accounts David
Gore has completed his report for
the past two years. The report is
one of immense proportions and
thoroughly deals with every subject
under the auditor's jurisdiction, es
pecially so regarding the subject of
taxation, to wnicn be devotes several
pages of manuscript. Comparisons
are freely made, whereby he under-
takes to show that bank assessments
are very unequal; that the greatest
tax is placed upon banks organized
nnder the general banking laws of
the state. Recommendations are
suggested amending the laws so as
to make a more just and equal taxa
tion of all banks. He also recom
mends taxing corporations, incor
porated for manufacturing purposes,
upon their capital stock, whereas
they are now assessed only upon
their tancrible Dronertv. An amend
ment is also suggested that will com
pel corporations organized nnder the
Jaws of this state to make prompt
returns of statements provided for
in section 32 of the revenue law.
Under the law as it now stands.
there is no penalty prescribed lor a
failure to make such returns.
The report further shows that the
amount in the state treasury Oct. 1,
1892, was t4.S49.551.38; of this 3.
815,557.75 was credited to the state
fund, and $583,963.63 to local bond
funds. The amount received from
Oct. 1, 1892, to Sept. 30, 1894. inclu
sive, was 19,437,988.1 2. The amount
disbursed from Oct. 1, 1892, to Sept
SO. 1894, inclusive, was $11,864,-
077.43. Balances in the treasury
Oct. 1. 1894, were: Trust fund.
$485,494.59; state fund, $1,437.
967.48. The estimated expenses of
the state government from Oct. 1,
1894, to July 1, 1895, are $2,680,
658.61. The total equalised assess
ment from all property tn the state
for taxation was for 1893. $847,191,
615. For 1894. $824,651,627. Since
March 24. 1855, the Illinois Central
Railway company has paid into the
state treasury $14,517,359.55, being 7
per cent of its gross receipts. Bonds
registered in the auditor's office ag
gregate $14,700,963.62. with 6 per
cent average rate of interest. The
Pullmans come in for their share of
the great nnjustness of taxations, as
well as other corpulent octopuses in
Tno Fatero Ciinsioasnsan.
That Rock Island and Rock Island
county has lost the republican con
gresaionai nominee through error
on the part of the republican party
in tne county, is a fact that none
will doubt who are familiar with tbe
circumstances which contributed to
the outcome of the Galva convention.
The first error was in the candidate,
and the methods resorted to to carry
tne county lor mm. ine second er
ror was in the delegation. It did
not include the party workers that
have been identified with successful
campaigns in the past. When it
came to coping with the neat politi.
cians the other counties presented.
the Rock Island county crowd
was dumbfounded under its load
It was stupefied, blocked effec
tually wherever it turned. Schemes
and influences that would have been
worked by others more familiar to
the wire-pullers" who were left at
heme were never thought of. Yet it
is possible that the best delega
tion that Rock Island could have sent
to the front wonld not have done bet
ter under similarly perplexing condi
tions, as the elements of candidacy
were shown to have cut a figure from
' the start. No better proof of this
could be given than in the attitude
of the Henry delegation. A county
bound oy tne strongest ties oi po'.iti
eal association and of Duhlic rxlicv
would not at best give Rock island
county more than seven votes is in
disputable evidence either that the
candidate was weak or that bis repre
sentatives on the floor were weak, in
like manner may Mercer- be re
ferred to. It was willing to come
to Rock Island if Rock Island could
form an alliance with Henry, al
though with any other candidate.
Mercer, it cannot be doubted, would
have given its vote to Bock Isjand
long before the crisis came.. But its
delegation maintained, "Mr. Gest is
nnder obligations to us, not we to
him. Let him show gratitude for
past favors, and we will reciprocate
as we have done in the past. Yet
both Henry and Mercer counties were
driven off to the extreme south end
of the district through the resistant
stubbornness of Rock Island county
in binding its republicanism to the
only one. The secret circle has, in
its devotion to sucn a cause, Drought
disaster npon its party by depriving
it of all chances ol a candidate, to say
nothing of the political breach it has
created within tbe county as between
the Rock Island and Moline elements
of the party.
That tbe republican nominee
should have been chosen from a
county so little in common with us.
and so remote from us, is to be re
gretted. We had hoped for more
from uen. rost, because during tbe
incumbency of the incubus. Marsh,
Rock Island has been without a con
gressman, and it has looked espe
cially . since the state was redis-
tricted to uen. rost to represent it,
and he had responded, and indeed
through his official dealings with the
county had become somewhat famil
iar with our wants before even he
was renominated. We cannot expect
so mnch from Prince. It wonld have
been better to have had either a White
side or a Mercer county man than
from Knox, so far as local interests
are at stake. Especially would this
have been true of Whiteside, whose
delegation Rock Island never thought
of cultivating as an emergency or
otherwise, as Rock Isjand and White
side are as closely identified by rea
son of the Hennepin canal as they
could possibly be. In the light of
thissItuation.it seems to IDE AR-
qcs that if the local issue which the
Union has been advocating so strong
ly of late, which all the friends of
Gest nsed so pointedly as against
Moline in the caucuses is worth con
sidering, Whiteside presents the
man for congress, and it happens to
have a candidate worthy of the name
in F. K. Bastian, the democratic
