The president has directed that
Paymaster H. R. Smith, of the nary,
be dismissed from the service, ac.
cording to sentence of a courtmar
tial, which two months ago found
him guilty of drunkenness, absence
without leave and scaidalous conduct.

"and it is donbtful if a daily paper

Whew! the Union is even begin
ning to go so far as to speak about
our citizens becoming indignant over
the board of supervisors the more
they think about the action on court
house material. When The An
nus voiced indignation at the way
the board was repeatedly disregard
ing public opinion and public obliga
tion, the Union rushed to the. defense
of the board and termed The Abgi:s
a whip wielder and a slave driver,

senses too late in the day. It has as
usual lecked the stable after the con
tents have disappeared. The, time
to have been up and stirring was
when the stone men were here dictat

adopt, when The Abuts sounded its
first note of warning in its protest
against secret sessions on the part of
the committee anil board.

The St. Louis Chronicle's Spring,
field correspondent says of the. ad
journment of the Illinois legislature:
"It has gone into history and such
history. It adjourned in the midst
of riot and excitement. The early
hours of tbe last night were
Casscd by the members drinking
eer, which had been brought in
to tbe house and committee
rooms in cases. Case after case
was drained and the members

was put and carried. At 11
o'clock a janitor named Scotten was
discovered by several members to be
voting their names and a dive was
made for him. Pandemonium en
sued, and Speaker Meyer ordered
them put out and the big door
locked. Reaching the corridor, the
mob grew to several hundred, mem
bers, citizens and employes, crack
ing each other's heads at will and
without discrimination. Big mem
bers struggled with little janitors,
and big janitors took delight in see
ing how hard they could hit the lit
tle representatives. The senate was
thrown into a tumult and many of
the senators came over to the house
corridor and tool, a hand in the shin
dy. During tbe riot two janitors
were discovered throwing furniture,
desks, chairs, writing paper, waste
baskets, etc., out of a 3-story win
dow. They were corralled and an
other tight ensued. This disturbance
continued for noarly an hour.
Speaker Meyer calmly viewed the
closing hours of his menagerie, and
had the clerk read bill after bill, and
declared it passed, or lost, as he
wished. There is no telling what
bills did pass until they are en
grossed by the clerks, which will
take a week. An attempt was made
to adjourn several times, but Speak.
er Meyer naa tbe clock turned back
two hours, and wonld not put the
motion until midnight arrived. Af
ter tbe smoke of battle cleared, it
was found that several members and
others bore traces of their scrapping.
'The scene of the wreck this morn
ing is a desolate one. The house is
strewn with all sorts of papers,
books, broken desks, demolished
chairs, and ruined carpets grace the
chamber that has known so many
dignified occasions. The .capitol
yard surrounding the house is lit.
tered with broken furniture, paper,
pieces of clothing, hats and other
chattels. The noise of the confusion
last night was heard for a mile and
attracted an immense throng of citizens."

It has often been declared that there

Catarrh starts in the nasal pas
sages, affecting eyes, ears and throat,
and is in fact, the great enemy of
the mucous membrane. Neglected
colds in the head almost invariably
precede catarrh, causing an excessive
how of mucous, and if the mucous
discharge becomes interrupted the
disagreeable results of catarrh will
follow, such as bad breath, severe
pain across forehead and about the
eyes, a roarm? and buzzing sound in
the ears and oftentimes a very offen
sive discharge. Ely's Cream Balm is
the acknowledged cure for these

Clinic Kidney Cure has made it such.
