Louisville and for 12 years prior to that
president of the board of aldermen, yes
terday shot and killed himself in the
private office of the Utica Lime and
Sand company, of which he was presi
dent. Mr. Rarth was ousted from office re
cently as a result of a bitter fight h,l
by the "reform forces." The validity
of his title to office was attacked un
der a law passed by the state legisla
ture, and though the "reformers" were
defeated in the trial court, the state
court of appeals found for them and is
sued a mandate ousting Rarth and his

Covernor Beckham at once appoint
ed Mayor Bingham to take charge of
the city's affairs. Almost the first act
of the new mayor was to begin an in
vestigation of the municipality's finan
ces. Experts were put to work on the
books of Burth's city buyer, Fred Bish
op. They discovered that a saddl
horse bad been purchased for $S0fl of
the city's money, but. the horse could
not be found. Bishop is absent from
the city and could not be located to
explain the whereabouts of the steed.
A few days ago it was learned that the
h.crse was in Bart If s private stable
and Mr. Barth was called into the may
or's office to tell why the animal was
in his possession.
Barth's enemies seized upon this as
evidence that he had been guilty of
"grafting" in office, and he was public
ly denounced. A cartoon was printed
showing him mounted on a stolen
I'.i.vm, liut linrii' Con tin ue.
Chafing, under the charges, and with
out waiting for Bishop to return to ex
plain the transaction, Barth sent Mayor
Bingham his individual check for $K00,
but this did not stop the charges which
were being made against him.
To his friends Barth often spoke of
the injustice of the attacks and said
he could no longer walk the streets
without being insulted.

lion. Edward D. Shurtleff of McHenry
county, speaker of the Illinois house of
representatives and republican candi
date for governor sounded the keynote
of his campaign at the annual outing
of the Farmers' Picnic association hell
yesterday at Lyford's grove above Port
Byron. After the usual preliminaries
the speaker took up his political ha
rangue and dealt with his subject rath
er fully, confining himself to the pass
age of the Chicago charter bill by the
last legislature and the proposed eiv
Iargenient of representation of Cook
county in the reapportionment due dur
ing the next administration.
Mr. Shurtleff told of the additional
power that was granted tne city ot
Chicago, which now has very close -o
half the population of the state of Illi
nois, witiiin its municipal ooraers, n
the charter is accepted at the coming
election on the quest ioit, stating th?t
of his knowledge many of the best
people of the metropolis were adverse
to the acceptance of the charter on
the grounds of increased taxation. He
ilso gave other causes. From this
point the speaker worked into the pow
er that would fall into the hands ef
Chicago and Cook county if the reap
portionment bill granted them increas
ed representation according to the in
creased ratio of population. He citel
instances in which power in legisla
tion of certain highly conjested dis
tricts in other states was being curtail
ed and asked that the people demand
that all candidates for governor at tl: 1
coming election should come out at
once and state their position in regavl
to the reapportionment bill. In plain
words the candidate stated that he
would oppose with all his power the
passage of any bill which added to the
political strength of Cook county and
if elected governor of the state of II1.'
nois he would veto any such bill which
came to him for his signature.
Three Thousand Atlenil.
Fully 3,000 people were in attend
ance on the picnic, coming for miles
from the surrounding country, many
from Henry county. Illinois, and Scott
county, Iowa as well as from Rock Is

the score being C, to ii. Shortly after
1 o'clock the speaking began. Dr. W.
Taylor of the Western Illinois hos
pital for the Insane at Watertown b?-
ng the first introduced.
Dr. Taylor eulogized the state of Il
linois in glowing terms and to.d of the
magnificence of the state among its
neighbors, giving entire credit to the
farms and farmers for this condition.
He told of the growth of importance
n the state and how this was being
brought about solely by the stand he
ng taken by the farmers. His talk wa.?
Speaker Shurtleff was next introduc
d and paid a high tribute to the stan 1
ng and efficiency of Dr. Taylor. He
llso spoke of the part that the farme-
of Illinois was iaking in the politics ot
l.minolirH Into I'oIKIcm.
The speaker then launced into his
iiscourse of present day problems in
the administration of the state of Illi
nois taking up m detail the danger of
dominition of state politics of Illinois
by Cook county. He said at the pres
ent time Cook county had 19 of the 5.
senatorial districts of the state, which
was not its full apportionment undr
the constitution of the United and the
state of Illinois. He also told that at
the ratio of growth which the city of
Chicago has experienced in the past
few years by the time of the reappor
tionment ordered from Washington
was consummated two years hence
Chicago and Cook county would have
the balance of j.ower and the remain-
ler of the state would be at the mercy
of the legislators from that section.
As a remedy for this Mr. Shurtleff an
nounced himself strongly in favor of
action at the coming session of the legis
lature limiting the representation of
one county to a certain proportion tI
the total representation of the sta'e.
citing as examples the state of New
York, Pennsylvania, and Missouri, in
all of which representation from coun
ties are limited, in one as low as on
sixteenth of the total representation of

that city cowards, and afraid to under
