THE AHGUS, TUESDAY, 3IABCII 17, 1903.
An Absolute Necessity
in Many Cases.
A DECREASE IN WEIGHT
Our Modern Rebuilder, Vino!,
Will Help You Do It.
THE YAY IT ACTS ON A DE
PLETED CONSTITUTION IS
Are you petting thin? If you are
yoM had better watch yourself. Take
Vinol. It will build you up quickly
A healthy man does not vary much
from year to year In his weight
This is as it should be. Vinol enables
the organs of the body to renew nesh,
muscle tissue, bone structure, and at
tends to purifying the great vital cur
rent of the hujnan system, the blood.
Vinol contains the active curative
properties of Cod-Liver Oil in a highly
concentrated state, and is the most
wonderful tonic that we have ever had
anything- to do with.
Vinol acts upon the stomach in a
beneficial way, enabling1 it to obtain
for itself the necessary ingredients
from the food that is taken into it to
build up the pure healthy body and in
crease the weiffht.
Mr. II. M. Stufell, who is a well
lnown passenger trainman on the
Boston and Maine Railroad, suffered
as many railroad men do. with kidney
end other troubles. He writes as fol
lows: "My kidneys troubled me a gTeat
deal, my bowels were very irregular, I
had great distress in my stomach, suf
fered with bilious headaches, had no
ippetit?, could not sleep nights, and
vas losing flesh rapidly. I began to
take Vinol. I am now on my third bot
tle, and it is doing- wonders for me.
My kidneys are better, my bowels are
again regular, my stomach no longer
troubles me, and no more headaches,
end as for appetite, don't speak of it ;
I sleep like a top and have gaiped
thirteen pounds. You can count en
me always to recommend Vinol as tho
king- of medicines."
"With many such testimonials as
the above coming before us, it is not
strange that we endorse Vinol as
strongly as we do. We unhesitat
ingly agree to return to any ore
who has taken Vinol and is not
satisfied that it has accomplished all
that we claim for it every cent that
they have paid us far this remedy.

Do With This and That
MERIT BILL IS 10WAIT AWHILE
Democrats Urjced to Help Pass tho
Same Parker Digs Up Interest
ing Matter Granger
Change of Heart.
Springfield, Ills., March 17. roth tho
state civil service bill and the resolu
tion directed against State Architect
Watson are scheduled as special orders
in the house tomorrow, but the m?rit
measure will have to stand aside. The
civil service bill Is still on second ren'd
injr. subject to amendment, and its en
emies will return to their work of try
ing to kill the law by loading it with
Treiinrs on th Democrat.
Tt is stilted that pressure has been
brought to hear on lie Democrats to
change their tactics and take up the
cudgels for the bill. Last week they
took little part In the proceedings, so
as to place all the responsibility on the
Republicans. It has been pointed out
that while the Democrats can claim
some credit if they help to pass a merit
law, they will surely be held responsi
ble for its failure, and therefore wis
dom dictates that they lend a hand to
legislation which, above all other laws,
should be regarded from a non-partisan
Parker Thinks It Otr.
. Senator Parker is expected to mak
interesting revelations when he takes
the floor to discuss his bill for a new
system of public accounting. He has
secured data showing what has been
drawn from the treasury in the way of
attorneys fees" and in other ways. If
the Chicago senator makes public all
the information he lias collected bis
tddress will be exceedingly interest
ing, so the knowing ones say. Just
now he is debating whether sucli a
course would mean the success or de
feat of the bill, which aims to prevent
"salary 'grabs" and "lump appropria
tions"' by state boards.
Farmers Favor i Game Iaw.
The proposed new game law hrs a
good chance for passage. Game laws
have'been defeated in past sessions by
the farmers, who believed that the city
sportsman desired to prevent them
from bagging a due!: or prairie chick
en. The sportsmen now say that the
farmers will support the bill before the
legislature, as they realize the press
ins need for a law to protcct the rap
idly disapenring wild fowl. The kill
ing of Illinois fowl for the eastern
market has reached such proportions
that the farmers have become alarmed
and are re:idy to join in a petition to
yie general assembly for th?4 enact
ment of an adequate law. '
OMt SENATOR WAS PRKbElsT
Bo the Senate I) I J Nothing at the Short
Monday Session House Work.
Spiinglieid, Ills.. March 17. Senator
Bees was the only member of tho

body was called to order at 5 p. m.
yesterday. He made all the motions
necessary to approve the journal of

Less than a quorum of the mem
bers of the house was present when
that body, met at 5 p. m. yesterday,
but by unanimous consent the regular

Recognizing challenges at primary

TALK OF A LOCAL OPTIONEB
So Satisfied with the Case Acalnst the 8a
loon is ts That They Have Rested.
Springfield, Ills.. March 17. Regard
ing the local option bill William II. An
derson, superintendent of the Anti
Saloon League, says: "It is true thai
when the opponents of the bill asked
for more time, we were offered another
chance to be heard. We declined on
the gYound that we were satisfied with
our case as made and were willing that
the opponents should continue until
theywere satisfied with their own pres
entation. We were willing to waive
our rights to close the hearing because
the matter is well understood aud we
want action now and did not care to
become a party to the saloon men's
campaign 01 delay.
"It was stated that the petitions pre
sented by the opponents of the bill con
tained 7(1.000 names and that within, a
week the aggregate will be 200,000. In
the first place, it is no trouble to get
signatures to a petition. It Is for this
reason1 that we have devoted ourselves
to persona 1 letters whlch require that
the writer take the ' Initiative. In the
second place. tberequireroents for signa
tures is some times accompanied by a
mild form of intimidation.
It is not hard to understand how
these names could be secured It tno
statements ;lflade at the North Side
Liquor Dealers' associatl&S In Chicago
as reported bythe papers and made, in
part bjr Mr. Grein at the hearing have
been generally- made by the opponents
of tho bill throughout the state. Most
of the present supporters of the bill
would sign a petition against if the
things were actually true.
"I refer especially to the statement
that the bill would. put the saloonkeep
er at the mercy of a few unscrupulous
petty blackmailers and compel them to
furnish liquor free upon request. The
reported statementatthe Chicago meet
ing was that It would require the con
sent of every voter In the entire pre
cinct to secure a saloon license and If
the ten persons protested later the sa
loon could be driven out of business.
We expected misrepresentation, but
we expeeter that It would be a little
KLEEUAN AND UIS GAVEL
Tog-ether They Are Said to Make a Team
Hard to Head Off.
Springfield, Ills., March' 17. Among
Cook county legislators the chief ques
tion Is: "What will Representative B.
V. Kleemau and his committee on
waterways and drainage do with the
Chicago sanitary district bill this
week?" ..Kief man . hails from South
Cihcago... When the drainage board's
annexation bill was Introduced and re
ferred to his committee the impression
prevailed that Chairman Kleemau was
opiiosed to the measure. At every meet
ing of the committee, , however, the
chairman has controlled the proceed
ings with the gavel, and although the
entire committee was against him he
has refused to put motions and de
clared " carried motions plainly voted
down, and vice versa, iu such a. high
handed manner that indignant com
plaint has been made to the speaker.
So much ill feeling has been stirred
up over Kleeman's arbitrarj' ways In
the chair that it is said he has been
called before the steering committee
and warned to desist on pain of losing
his chairmanship. Speaker Miller has in
formed the other members of the com
mittee that he would not permit the
house to consider a drainage bill re
ported by Chairman Kleeman unless
it had tb' support of a majority of the
Inasmuch as the citizens of both
Evanston and Calumet are anxious to
be annexed to the drainage district
there is, broadly speaking, no valid
season forobstructlng the advancement
of the bill. Ma n j members of the bouse,
however, object on the ground that the
law would enlarge the iiowers of the
drainage trustees and give them the
chance to spend much more money,
and it is for personal reasons like this
that the bill has dragged along to slow
ly. ;. .. V
CHICAGO AND TIER PARKS
Legislation She Wants la Order to
Increase Their Ileanty.
Springfield, Ills.. March 17. An
agreement has been reached to give
Chicago a chance to get the legislation
needed for th further improvement of
the park system. The bill for a sit
on the I-ake Front for the Marshall
Field under which be will give $10,
000.000 for a building, is to be re
lated out of the senate committee on
parks and lioulevards today. At the
same time the same committee will
bring out for passage the bill to merge
the Lake Front and Grant parks In
other words, the sections of the Lake
Front between Michigan avenue and
the tracks aud the new piece represent
ed by the submerged lands east of the
present shop line, between Randolph
street and Tark row.
The senate committee has already
reported favorably on the bill for an
additional bond Issue for the soutn
parks, to enable that taxing body to
carry out the plans for additional
small parks in various localities on
the south side. The Lincoln park ex
tension project, by which 213 acres are
to be added at a cost of $1,000,000,
will also be taken up this week, and
it is probable it will also be Indorsed
by the committee and passed by the
The' senate will also take up this
week the Torrens law amendment,
which seems destined for an early
death; the Mueller municipal owner
ship bill, the enabling act for street
railways in Chicago, which is likely
to be passed, and a number of other
Important Chicago measures.
ANTI-SALOON LEAGUE FIGHT
Local Option Come Up This Week and
the League Is IJusy.
Springfield, Ills., March 17. The
local option bill of the Anti-Saloon
League is to be taken up again this
week. It Is to be considered in the
house elections committee Thursday,
and in the senate license committee
tomorrow. The Anti-Saloon League
people are flooding the legislators with
petitions demanding the passage of the
bill, and "they seem to have ierfect
organization for the creation of popu
lar sentiment In favor of their bill.
On the other hand, the municipali
ties which are likely to be affected
by the measure are protesting against
the county feature of the bill. Some
of the members are talking of pass
ing a compromise bill which will make

TO , ESCAPE TRIAL
Charge of Conspiracy Against
Margaret Miller to Bo
CLOSE OF THE DUULAP CASE
Sentiment or Community Has
ways Been With Ac
Miss Margaret Miller will not be
Drought to trial on the indictment in
Mercer comity charging her with per
jury in connection with the famous
trial of Miss Tona Dunlap, charged
with poisoning Miss Allie Dool. This
statement, is made on the authority
of n gentleman who had a recent in
terview with W. .1. Graham, state's
attorney of Mercer county, and to
whom that official announced his in
tention of quashing- the indictment.
The court meets Monday, April 0, and
the order will be officially made at
It will be remembered that Miss
Miller, whose home is in the country
northwest of Monmouth, was in
Aledo last summer when Miss Dool
tbed. She was attending the teach
ers institute, and on the afternoon
of the fatal day accompanied Miss
Dunlap to the store, where-they had
a talk and it was claimed Miss Dunlap
gave Miss Dool chocolate creams.
Miss Miller's testimony was impor
tant on the point whether Miss Dun
lap took the creams from the sack or
handed the sack itself to Miss Dool
to have her make her own selection.
Her evidence on this point- was said
to be contradictory and the indict
ment was mad.
Dae to Xerroanuess.
It was always thought by many
that any apparent contradiction was
due to the nervousness of Miss Miller
at the time of the interview secured
at home by men from Aledo. On
the witness stand her story was al
ways the same, saying that Miss Dun
lap handed the sack to Allie Dool and
the latter selected from several
creams in it the ones which slur ate.
The sentiment of the people in the
community has been strongly in Miss
Miller's favor, for they did iut think
.die had done wrong. They will ap
prove of Mr. (Srahaiu's decision to
dismiss the Case against her.
