An Announcement Which Will be Re
ceived With Genuine Regret Hope That
HI Successor Will be a Well OnallUed
for the Dlecbarre of the Unties.
T. S. Silvis has forwarded to Gov.
Altgeld bis resignation as one ot the
commissioners of the new Western
Insane hespital. for the establishment
of which at some point west of the
Illinois river the last general assem

I need to make the move by me con
dition of his health. Not that he is
any more seriously indisposed than
be lias been, but appreciating in tue
highest sense the honor reposed in
him by the governor and realizing
the responsibility of the office, he
felt that a sense of duty dictated the
course he bas adopted. It was.
therefore, after considerable deliber
tion and with great reluctance, that
he decided upon the step, which was
taken, too, contrary to the urgent
solicitation of personal friends that
be endeavor to undertake fie dis
charge of the duties. Mr. Silvis had
taken much interest in the position
and had anticipated with pleasure
the energetic work that would de
volve upen him, but he anally be
came convinced that be should make
the sacrifice as a question of duty.
Who Will be the Successor.
As Gov. Altgeld is out of the state
attending the Milwaukee semi-cen
tennial celebration, his action on the
resignation of Commissioner Silvis
will not be known until his return to
Springfield. In the original choice
he made the best selection possible.
not only as regards litness for the
office, but as far as popularity with
the people is concerned, and it is to
be hoped his successor may combine
so happily all these elements.
That the new commissioner to be
named by the governor will come
from Bock Island is conlidently be
heved, not only as the successor
naturally belongs here, as the same
reasons prevail that did when the
appointments were first made, Rock
Island being an active candidate lor
the location of the hospital, but for
the reason that the chief rival point,
Galesburg, has a member of the
It is not believed there will not be
much time lost filling the vacancy,
as the commission has abundance of
important work before it, which
ought to receive attention soon, not
only in the visitation of proferred
sites and the selection of one adapted
to all purposes of the institution.
but in the preliminaries to the ac
tual commencement of the building.
With the long existing over
crowded condition of the insane asy
lums of the stale, it was the idea of
the legislature adopting the bill pro
viding for tna-new one that it should
be supplied as quickly as possible.

Many People Victimized by the Fake Pho

checks from the smooth-talking
voung man who recently canvassed
the city are beginning to realize that
they hive been swindled. To judge
from the number of parties com.
plaining of being unable to
locate 1205 Second avenue it
is evident the swindler did a
fair business. The exceptionally
gentlemanly and modest address
of the latest canvasser seems to have

Small Advance Payments.
1 ue canvasser unraveled the cus
tomary prelude to getting down to
business. In order to personally in
troduce his workmanship among the
people he found it necessary to go
from house to house and offer special
inducements to have his work given
a trial. He offered a dozen cabinet
sized photographs for$l for a limited
period. If the bcneli'.i of this offer
were desired such parties would
have to purchase a check for 25
cents the amount to go toward de
fraying tbe cost of the photographs,
the" remittance of 75 cents only being
necessary when the work was done.
Mr. Fakir found an abundance of ac
cepters. On the card presented the
number of his gailary was given as
1205 Second avenue, where according
to his representations, he would in
all probability be permanently lo
cated. Eventnaliv people com.

the directory, or anywhere else.
Then they discovered that the swind

There are also complaints about
another fellow who is at present at

Still Another Plan.
Still another plan of photographic
swindling with a more plausible
theory has been brought to light in
Rock Island. The gailery operator
goes about distributing tickets from
bouse to house for which 50 cents is
asked which on presentation on a
certain day and an additional 50
cents entitles the holder to one
dozen cabinet photographs. It has
so happened with many who have
called that they were politely re.
minded that the dav of redemption
had elapsed, and that the advanced 50
cents bad simply been forfeited.

proposed bill without buying the
sanitation committee of the house of

ho visited Springfield with a bill
prepared by the Undertakers1 as
sociation providing for the ap
pointment of a board of examin
ers, from whom all desiring to
follow embalming in Illinois would
have to secure a certificate of
eligibility. Mr. Norton was told
that $1,000 would be necessary to
get the bill through. The boodlers
afterward cut their price $500. This
