REPORTS to the MnrinA hnsnital
bureau at Washington show tbat
there were 8 7 deaths from smallpox
in Illinois in 1394.

presidential nomination possibilities.

TnE Chinese residents cf the

As exchar.ge says that 4 J ladies in
an Illinois town organized themselves
into a society for the suppression of
gossip. The penalty of gossiping by
a member was expulsion from the
society. The organization, the paper
goes on to cruelly assert, lasted less
than a month, all the members hav
ing been expelled except one, and she
was deaf and dumb.
The city of Dubuque is to have a
fchool superintendent. For at least
20 years, and perhaps a much longer
time, the schools of that city hare
gotten along without that officer, but
the people there have about become
convinced tbat the city should come
into line with the other cities of the
United States. Last week James
Kirk, of Springfield, where he is now
assistant superintendent, was chosen
to the new superintendency. The
salary is fixed at 12.000.
One of the bills signed by Gov.
Morton, of Xew York, provides for
the incorporation of a board to be
railed "Trustees of Scenic and His
toric Places and Objects," with au
thority to acijuire and hold real ar d
personal estate not exceeding fl,0C0,
000 in value. The board includts
some of the best known citizens of
the state and it is thought that their
intelligent work will lead to the cre
ation of similar bodies in other
The Mooey Question.
The Cook connty democracy Satur
day declared for the free coinage of
silver. At a meeting of the demo
cratic county central committee of
Lee county Saturday resolutions
were unanimously adopted declaring
that the silver question is most sat
isfactorily explained in the language
of Senator John M. Palmer, when
he says the democratic party is anx
ious to extend the use and influence
of silver as money metal, and "we
welcome any policy which will se
cure the coinage of the silver dollar
upon a basis equal in value, power,
and acceptability with a dollar of
gold. Any further recommendation
at the present time other than the
above is ill-advised, and we deem it
unwise to ask the democratic party
of this countrjr to obligate itself by
adopting measures at this time
which possibly may adjust them
selves before the campaign of 1896.
Therefore, the committee deems it
advisable net to call the convention
to send delegates to the state con
vention of June 5, 1895."
Street Cars as Mall Carrier,
The use of street cars for the dis
tributing of the mails will begin in
Chicago May 15. Its success is as
sured by the example of Boston and
Brooklyn, where street postal cars
have been running for several years.
The innovation is more important
than may appear at first sight. The
construction placed on the postal
statutes by the courts last summer
makes railway strikes a perilous
business for the strikers, even when
the disputed decisions regarding the
interstate commerce act are left out
of the question. Labor unions will
be less inclined to order strikes on
street railway lines when the compa
nies become mail carriers and en
titled as such to extraordinary pro
tection. The violent blockading of a
street car flying a postoQice flag
wonld bring 'the rioters into direct
conflict with the United States gov
ernment. Then, the rule should
work both ways. The companies on
their part should be made to respect
their contracts with the government
to the extent of using all reasonable
means to prevent discontent among
employes. In the Brooklyn strike
the rights of the government were
woefully neglected, but the end of
the extension of the railway mail
service in this direction must be the
restraint of both employers and em

' The Waubansee club of Chicago,
opened a sound money school at the

Chicago anditorium Saturdav ni?ht.
William A. Vincent, president of the
club in the chair. The 250 pupils
present were first served with a din
ner of six courses, and at 9 o'clock
were in a fitting mood to hear what
wisdom the teachers had in store for
them. The unique feature of the
naubansce club s nnancial school lay
in the fact that it really was a school,
that the pupils were there, the teach
ers were there and the ' whole affair
had in it a substantial and tangible
reality. Prof. Laugblin made a chart
talk, and addresses were delivered
by Senator Palmer, S. Zeisler and K.
W. Knott, of Louisville. Letters of
regret were read from Secretary of
Agriculture J. Sterling Morton and
Hon. Ben T. Cable, the tatter's being
Rock Islakd, May 2. William A.
Vincent, President Waubansee Club.
My Dear Sir: I beg to acknowl
edge the receipt sf yonr invitation
to attend the sound money ban
quet, which the Waubansee club pro
poses to give on the evening of May
4. Unhappily for myself, I am con
strained to send you my regrets. A
business engagement of too much
importance to be neglected requires
my presence in the east, and hence I
must forego the pleasure of the eve
ning's entertainment to which you so
kindly bid me.
"At the dinner, if I correctly un
derstand your purpose, you propose
to ask an expression of opinion from
members of the club upon the wis
dom and expediency of the free and
unlimited coinage of silver at a ratio
to gold established some sixty years
ago under conditions of relative value
vas.ly different from those tbat exist
today. From what I know of the
Waubansee club and its sterling
democracy there is no doubt in my
mind as to its answer. Its members
are not prepared to enroll themselves
as upholders of a policy which, if
adopted by the country, would re
pudiate one-half of the amount of all
indebtedness, public' and private,
except where payment in gold had
been distinctly specified in the con
tract. The unsettling of values, the tre
mendous disturbance in the business
and industrial world that would fol.
low the adoption of free coinage in
this ratio, together with the inevita
ble sequence of hard times, of dis
tress and suffering1 in the laboring
community, of prolonged and cruel
nardship to all classes, would of
themselves give answer even if one
did not meet upon the very threshold
of the question considerations invit
ing honesty and fair dealing between
man and man. A year hence the
samequestionwill.be submitted to
the democratic party of the state
and nation for answer. When one
bears in mind how sound has been I
the party record in the past, it is
easy to predict what reply will be
given. It has held too firmly and
too consistently as a principle of eco
nomics that value cannot be created
by the mere stamp of the govern
ment upon a piece of paper to com
promise tbat proposition when for
paper is substituted a piece of silver
worth just one-half the legend that
the government die prints upon its
surface. Pecks cannot be made into
bushels nor quarts into gallons by
legislative enactment, nor can half
dollars be converted into dollars by
an act of even the most kindly and
beneucent ol legislatures. It will
declare for'sound money, an offen
sive term at times, and 'one that our
free coinage friends question our
right to appropriate; Bbut under
whatever name, for a money gold
and silver that will withstand all
attempts to lower its value, that will
enter the melting pot as coin and
emerge as bullion, losing nothing - in
the change from one to the other,
save the government stamp of weight
and fineness, and just as valuable in
the eyes of the world as before it
commenced its journey. It will de
clare for money ol both metals
coined in the ratio of their market
value, money that is intrinsically
sound because in the market of the
world the demands of mankind have
fixed its value in determining the
value of the metals which compose

Mrs. II. B. Adams, 1609 Wabash
avenue, Chicago, says: "I had a
scrofulous taint of the blood from
childhood, which, however, remained
dormant. An ulcer began on the
side of the nose, having all the ap
pearances of a most malignant can
cer. The agony of mind I suffered
cannot be described as I contem
plated the progress of such a malig
nant disease. Finally I was induced
to try Foley's Sarsaparilla. It ap
peared to neutralize the poison in
the blood. The growth of the ulcer
ceased. The diseased tissues in the
bottom and edges of the sore seemed
to loosen and the natnral flesh to
take its place. No part of the dis
ease remains. M. F. Bahnsen's
