the second 'edition of the congres
Edwix F. Uhl, of Michigan, as.
sistant secretary of state, has been
appointed to succeed the late Am
bassador Ronyon to the court of

Gomez, the wonderful Cuban in.
surgent general, is a man of 60,
about 5 feet 7 inches in height and
weighing not over 140 pounds. He
is described by an English officer
serving witn the rebels as alert, cool,
calculating and intrepid.
Bev. Dr. John A. Bkooks. of St.
Louis, who has been called to the
pastorate of the Tabernacle of Lon
don, was the prohibition candidate
for governor of Missouri in 1881. and
the vice presidential candidate of the
same party lour years later.
That was rather a Hank move on
the part of Gen. McKinley in send,
ing down into Keed's district to have
his badges made, and is not a little
significant. These badges are to be
made on tin plate, with the likeness
of McKinley stamped on the Ameri
can nag as a background.
The coal combine has agreed to
limit production to 6,500,000 tons
for the prer.ent year. This means
mat mere will be no competition
and in consequence the people will
have to pay higher prices for their
roal. In other words, it is the taxa
tion of the many for the benefit of

ticularly republicans . in Tennsyl.
The location of the Illinois Ma.
sonic Eastern Star Home, it is ex.
' pected, will be decided at a meeting
to be held in Peoria today, of the
executive committee of the Home
association. This home is for indi
gent Mason's widows and orphans,
and is to be supported mainly by the
Eastern Star chapters of the state.
The Home association has hppn in.
corporated and all that is asked of
win city in wnicn u is located is a
site of live acres of ground. The
cities competing for the location are
Peoria, Decatur, Vienna, Champaign,
Lincoln and Lewiston.
Illinois for MorrUoa.
Tho Edwardsville Intelligencer
publishes a page of expressions on
the part of representative democrats
throughout the state, in response to
inquiry made by the Intelligencer as
to the feeling for the candidacy of
William R. Morrison for the demo
cratic presidential nomination. The
Intelligencer says by way of introduc
tion: "Will William R. Morrison be the
choice of the democracy of Illinois
for the presidential nomination? If
not, wnor col. Morrison has made
no formal announcement of his cand
idacy, but in his state and out of it
ne bas been mentioned perhaps more
generally than any other person, and
is this time undoubtedly the most
conspicuous figure for the distinction
in his party. The position of his
own state in reference to his candi.
dacy is of first importance. Only
once in the history of politics of this
country has a man been nominated
for the presidency with the delega
tion of his state favoring someone
else, and it is not probable that a
repetition of this will occur in a long
period. Every large state has num
erous factions and elements, each
favoring views and men and contend
ing for supremacy, and hence diffi
cult to unite in one expression or in
favor of one man. In order to ascer
tain the sentiment as far as it has
shown itself at this time, the above
question was submitted to democrats
throughout the state. The result of
the canvass is susceptible of only one
interpretation. The democracy of
Illinois can unite more readily and
with less persuasion on Col. Morri
son than on any other citizen who
has sufficient national prominence to
make his candidacy worth seriously
considering." Then follow the ex.
pressions. from which are taken the
following from state officials and
those of this congressional district:
Lieutenant Governor Joseph B.
Gill, Morphysboro In my opinion
Col. Morrison will be the choice of
the Illinois democracy for the presi
State Auditor David Gore, Spring,
field From information gathered
from leading democrats throughout
the state, I have no question in my
mind but that Willium R. Morrison
will be the choice of the democraev
of this State for the presidential so nom
ination. . Ben - TV. Cable, of. Bock Island.
member of the national and also the
state committee I "believe that
Morrison will have no opposition in
securing the instructions of the dele,
gation and that he will be the party's
J. W. Potter, Bock Island In my
opinion the delegates selected to rep.
resent Illinois at Chicago will be
unanimously Instructed to presenfthe
name of William B, Morrison to the
national convention as the choice of
the Illinois democracy for president.
Rock Island. Thomas S. Sil vis. Bock
Island William R. Morrison will cer
tainly be the choice of the democracy
of Illinois for the presidential nomi
nation. Whiteside, A. W. Bastian, Fnlton
The democracy of this section is
almost nnanimous in the choice of
W. R. Morrison for the presidential
nomination. No other candidate has
any following worth mentioning. All
believe that the patriotism, ability
and principles of Mr. Morrison are
not second to those of any other
candidate proposed by any party.
Further, he has the confidence of all
democrats regardless of the division
over the money question, and is the
candidate who can restore harmony
to the counsels and give enthusiasm
to the rank and file of the party.
Mercer. Guy C. Scott, Aledo In
my judgment Illinois will present
Mr. Morrison as her candidate for
the presidency. While he has not
always been a man of great personal
popularity in this portion of the
state, still he has been regarded as a
man of sterling honesty and a demo
crat of unswerving type, and after
our experience in the last congress
with time servers and hypocrites, it
is refreshing to turn to a democrat
of whose steadfastness there can be
Tbe Intelligencer accompanies this
issue with an excellent lithograph of
TVhcreDoM It Stud
While the Union has shown itself
to be considerably disturbed over the
democratic situation in Illinois, it
has kept profoundly quiet regarding
the pandemonium reigning in its
own party. The A kg us has gone on
record as to preferences in national
and state candidacies, and is willing
to stand or fall with its favorites.
Why isn't the Union equally
candid? For instance, Bro. John,
son, are you a "snapper" or "anti
snapperP" Do you claim connection
with the Tanner-Herts machine or
are you agin it? Who do yon favor
for "a presidential candidate, and
lastly, but not least, will you grace
fully fall in line for the renomina
Hon of Congressman Prince, or do
yon intend to trot ont the Rock Isl
and congressional ghost again?
These are all pertinent questions,
and the time has arrived wben it is
necessary for you to define your po
sition, or relinquish the ambition
which yon are said to be gently
nursing. Get off the fence, Mr.
Johnson, even though yon fall among
thistles and briars. '

Professor William D. Marks, speak
iiijr of Mr. Ediwui's visit to this city,
said: "Hp does uot think of kiting up
ou his work. He told we that now that
he was through with the ore concen
trator process he purposed to return to
the laboratory and push electricity as
fur as ho could. During tho last year or
so, while busy with tho oro concen
trator, niany thoughts nnd ideas as to
improvements in tho various forms of
electrical machines ami uses had occur
red to him. but ho had simply made a
unto nf them and put tho matter aside
until his return to the lalmratorr. Some
of them that he niotitinned to mo were
startling. If ho lives a few years longer,
tho world can be Hire of ninny new in

will follow tip he mentioned tho fact
that ho had thought nut a means of pro
ducing incandescent light at half of it

matter, needless to say. Ho says ho had

that it was practicable." Philadelphia

Lambkin, as she and. her spouse were
walking home together. "Wo could, I'm
sure, if yon didn't look upon.-Wagner as

"My only objection to him is the fact
that be sends jou to sleep and then
won't let yon ay there," replied Mr.
Lambkin. Then, basely anxious to
change the subject, he remarked, "I do
believe that is Mrs-Fitzjonea in another

they were at the opera List evening and
expect to go again tomorrow. "
"Indeed. Ah, by the war, didn't yoa
tell me that yon thought Dick Norocks
and Miss Effie had quarreled?"
"Very likely. I notice that Dick is
particularly touchy whenever grand
opera is in town. "
"Ah, indeed. By the-way, how should
yon like to call at your mother's thia.
"Very much, if anybody was likely to
be at home. But of coursu they will, all
go to the opera. "
"Um ah! I've jnst remembered that
this is church evening. Suppose we go.
We haven't been to evenir g church.8ince
we were first married. "
"Impossible, George. I should be
ashamed to have any one know that I
was well enough to be out after night
and not at the opera. . People would be
sure to say that you are stingy, and I
would rather die then cause such re

yon are to go to tho opera, but money is
too tight. I had to make a payment to

"Humph I We are Furo to bo alone,

"All the better, my dear. Jnst step in
here with me a moment, will yon? I
have no cigars, and I don't wont to lif.ve

I don't keep many cigars on hand now

They went into the store, and Mr.
Lambkin selected his cigars, while his
wife stood by. Ho felt anxiously in his
pockets for small change, and finding

THE NSW WOMAN'S WAY.
How Sb. Will Propose to the Innocent
Young Male Cr tare.
The room was in confusion. That is
the way tho books say it. An ordinary
man with good eyes would have said
confusion was in tbe room.
Her hands trembled as she attempted
to fix her tie. Thirteen collars have
been ruined. She took a photograph
from a drawer. It was the sweet, inno
cent face of a young man. "Ah, little
Geo. go ! I can no longer deceive myself.
I love you. The strong is about to be
come tho weak. How far we women
will go for the bright eyes of a silly
man ! But enongh ! I shall ask yon to
be mine this night, come what may."
"Mr. Nicely will lie down in a mo
ment. Pray be seated, ' '
But her heart boat too wildly. She
paced the floor. "Tho dear, dear, little
boy! How I love him!"
The curtains- parted, and tho world's
greatest treasure a true hearted, inno

for a few minutes. She attempts to take

looks startled. ) '

must speak ! I love you with tho groat
love of a brave woman. I"
"But this is so"
"It is. - But will yon be my hus

young man's gentle eyes. But he spoke :

Fixing at Watch.
"I dropped my watch today, and it
has been gaining ten minutes an hour,"
said a man, at the same time handing
tbe watch to a jeweler. The jeweler
stuck a glass in his eye, looked into the
interior of the watch, poked something
with a small instrument, set the watch
by a regulator, and handing it back,
said, "It's all right now, and I've set it
by the correct time." "Howniuch?"
said the customer, relieved. "Nothing,"
was the answer. "But I can't let yon
work for me without pay. " "We never
charge any one for such a service ; why
should we charge yon? The hairspring
was doubled, and that made the watch
run fast. A single touch set it right "
