Waverly, Feb. 47. Credit for the In
troduction of civil service In Illinois
public Institutions was claimed last
night by Governor Charles S. Deneen
In an address delivered here. He said
the platform on which he conducted
his campaign In 1!H4 pledged the en
actment of a civil service law for the
state Institutions, and 1n bis first mes
sage to the general assembly Jan. 9,
i:u5, he advocated the passage of such
Mattoon. Feb. 27. Edward F.
LHinne of Chicago, candidate for the
democratic nomination for governor,
yn-terday attacked "boss rule" and ex
travagance in the state administration.
"It is Inconceivable that the men of
Illinois will permit their state govern
ment to remain in the hands of those
who have looted and plundered and
ding-raced it for generations past," he
said. "It Is ihardly necessary for me
to assure you that role factions which
are now stirring your resentment did
not have their beginnings In any no
ble or jexalted purpose. AH of these
bosses have their eyes on that 120,
000,000 which was voted by the people
for the construction of a waterway.
In that lies the potentialities of explot
tatlon of your rtghU."
Chicago. Feb. 27. Samuel Alscbu
ler, candidate for the democratic gub
ernatorial nomination, left Chicago the
other night for his third week of down-
state campaigning. Before returning
to tils headquarters at the Hotel La
Salie next Sunday Alschuler expects to

part of the state. Alschnler will speak
today lat Tuscola, Sullivan. Mattoon
and Paris, ending with a big night
meeting at Robinson. Tomorrow he
will apeak in Marshall, Greenup, Ef
fingham, Odin and Centralla. In dis
cussing his reception downstate Al
schuler said: My reception everywhere
has been most generous, and the peo
ple have been more enthusiastic than I
had expected. The sentiment most of
them expressed was that I made a
a good race and was a satisfactory
candidate for jrovernor 12 years ago,
when victory was impossible.
Bloomington, Feb. 27. State's Attor
ney John E. W. Wayman of Cook coun
ty In an laddress here last night re
plied to the statement published yes
terday by Governor Deneen. "The
people of Illinois are not only sick and
tired of the 'bathroom boys,' " he said,
"but they are equally sick and tired
of the system of politics that makes
distribution of money in bathrooms of
St Louis hotels possible. The jackpot
will never become a permanent insti
tution In this country. Governor De
ntin's campaign manager claims that
the Issue Is a moral one, that It is
Lorlmerism, and that Mr. Deneen Is

"Clean Up the Bowels and

There are many remedies to be
had for constipation, but the diffi
culty is to procure one that acts
without violence. A remedy that
does not perform

should be accom
plished by persua
sion is Dr. Miles'
After using them,
Mr. N. A. Waddell,
St. Waco, Tcx
"Almost all my
life I ha.va been
troubled with constipation, and have
tried many remedied, all of wnioti
seemed to cauae pain without fring
much relief. I finally tried Dr. Miles'
Lxatlve Tablet and found them ex
cellent. Their action fa pleanmnt and '
mild, and their chooolata taata makea
them cany to take. I am mora than
glad to recommend them."
"Clean up the bowels and keep
them clean," is the advice of all
physicians, because they realize the
danger resulting from habitual con
stipation. Do not delay too long,
but begin proper curative measures.
Dr. Miles' Laxative Tablets are a
new remedy for this old complaint,
and a great improvement over the
cathartics you have been using in
the past. They taste like candy
and work like a charm. A trial
will convince you.
Dr. Miles' . Laxative Tablets are
sold by all druggists, at 25 cents
a box containing 25 doses. If not
found satisfactory after trial, re
turn the box to your druggist and
he will return your money.
