JOHN W- POTTER.
Mondat, July 15. 1889.
For State's Attorney,
KCGKNK LEWIS, of Molina.
The revised school law of Illinois,
which is now in force, provides that no
person who csnnot read and write the
English language, shall be eligible to the
office of school director. The state sun
perintendcnt has ruled it is not the inten
tion of the legislature to thus disqualify
any person now in office.

TitK special elrctioo for state's altornev
to till the unexpired terra caused by the
death of the late Hon. Patrick O'Mara,
occurs tomorrow. There are three can
didatesin the Held Eugene Lewis, dem
ocrat; M. M. Sturgeon, republican, and
S. V. O'di-ll, prohibitionist. Of course
the content lies between the two first
named With a full and "straight" vote
Mr. Sturgeon would be successful, as his
party has several hundred majority in
the county. But nobody expects any
thing like a full vote, and the great dis
satisfaction expressed throughout the
county over the republican nominee,
makes the result highly problematical.
While Mr. Sturgeon had a majority to
begin with, his nomination was hotly con
tested by three other gentlemen, whose
friends went home disgruntled and
ore over the manner in which
Sturgeon manipulated the conven
tion. This, with other causes, has weak
ened him coquderably . Mr. Lewis, on
the contrary, was nominated by acclama
tion, without a dissenting voice. With
one acconl the delegates asked him to
accept the nomination, and there were
not subsequent bickerings or fault find
ing. Everything connected with bis can
didacy has been harmonious and fraught
with the best of feelings. There are no
dissensions in the democratic ranks, and
Mr. Lewis will undoubtedly get the
united support of his party, which he is
certainly entitled to. . This, with the
large republican vote which Mr. Lewis
will surely receive by reason of his high
moral character, legal ability and general
fitness for the office, will be sufficient to
secure his election.

Frost the Chirav'o Time.
The recent arbitrary ruling of the treas
ury department increasing the duty on
worsteds is bringing to light what might
prove to be a most nefarious political
bargain. It has been charged, and the
charge has not been wholly denied, that
the worsted nabobs gave enormous con
tributions to the republican campaign
funds with the understanding that the
duty was to be increased on worsteds for
the next two years. Dut bow will this
pay them for their contributions? Well,
if the beautiful campaign assertions of
the high protective tariff party were true,
that the foreigner paid this duty, and not
the consumer, it would not. But, unfor
tunately for them, this is not the case.
It will tie remembered that some time
ago the treasury department rated hat
trimmings made of silk riDbons as ttilk
ribbons and charged duty accordingly.
The importers paid the duty, amounting
to $6,000io0. under protest and then ap
pealed to the supreme court. That tri
bunal decided in favor of the importers
and had their money refunded. In the
meantime they had advanced the prices
of their trimming to cover the extra duly
and had got it all back from the con
sumer, with profit on their investment, as
well as per cent on the $6.()tHi,iNH) they
had paid out as extra duty. Then when
the treasury had refunded them the 6,
0O0.(MM they put that in their pockets.
Of course they never prorated it among
the consumers to reimburse them for
having psid this duty in the first place.
Not they. These importers and ribbon
barons look on all, such as this as a part
of the governmental scheme to assist
them in gouging a few extra millions a
year from the deluded taxpayers of this
free country. So it will tie in the case of
the excess of duties just put on worsteds.
Of course the worsted barons will ap
peal. They will make a great bowl about
the burdens on the consumers, and all
that, and righteously and indignantly
appeal to the supreme court. This is
part of the scheme. And, of course, as
in the case of the silk ribbons for hat
trimmings, the supreme court will de
cide in favor of the worsted importers,
as the law is the same. In the mean
time the prices of worsteds will be raised
to the consumers to meet this excess of
duty, and the people will have to pay it.
Then the treasury department will be
made to refund this duty to the worsted
men, who will pnt it down in their pock
ets. In this way, during the next two
years, tbey will get back all they con
tributed to the high tariff campaign
fund several times over, together with
double compound interest thereon. And
thus it works. And then they will be
ready to contribute again in 1892.

There is only one wav to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by aa inflamed con
dition of the mucus lining of the Eustach
ian tube. When this tube gets inflamed
yon have a rambling sound or imperfect
hearing, and when it is entirely closed
deafness is the result, and unless the in
flammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condi
tion of the mucus surfaces.
We will give one hundred dollars for
any rase of deafness (caused by catarrh)

Pakis, July 15. The anniversary of the
fall of the Bast lie was celebrated everywhere
throughont the French republic yesterday
with more than ordinary splendor. Here in
Paris he city was decked iti a blaze of color,
fnwn every house top and from every win
dow fl.wting the tri-color of the republic.
There were the usual military and civic pa
rnd.'S and s rvirm in the churches in the
morning and public entertainments in the
afternoon and evening.
llonlanger'a Portrait Displayed.
In some windows along the principal
streets transiwrencies bearing the portrait of
Bnuhiner were displayed. These elicited
loud cheers from some and as vigorous boot
ing f in vn others of the crowds which paraded
the streets, but the police made no attempts
to interfere with the transparencies and there
was no disorder. In the evening there were
fireworks at the principal public place, and
these threw the city into a blaze of light.
A Demonstration of Boulangists.
An incident of the fetes was to have been
the demonstration of the Boultngiats in the
Place de la Concorde. It had been adver
tised far and wide, and as a result thousands
of people assembled in the square at the hour
designated fur the meeting, many of them
sympathizers with the Boulangist cause, but
by far the greater number attracted by curi
osity. The Folic Make a Diversion.
At the time appointed M. Clemen to, the
commissary of police, with a strong force
was on band, and w hen M M. Deroulede and
Lai;uerr made their appearance be warned
them that no speaking would be permitted.
The Boulangitita thereupon gathered about
the great statue of Strasburg, while Derou

which he placed upon the statue with the re
mark that it was a work which France owed
Attempt to Arrest Deroolede.
Clemente;at this rushed up to where
Derouk-le stood and attempted to arrest
him, but the crowd closed in upon him, and
the commissary was severely handled by the
Boulangists. The police then made a charge
into the crowd and rescued M. Clements, but
the mob w as so strong and so violent that
they did not attempt to arrest any of "the
offender. The crowd then paradal the
streets, being frequently dispersed by the
police, but as frequently reforming and con
tinuing their march and their hurrahs for
Boulanger. There was great excitement
throughout Pans last night.
After the General's Success, What!
Loxpox.July 15 (ten. Boulanger's friends
in Um city, say the French problem will
be solved in peace. Notwithstanding their
disclaimer of warlike intentions, however,
these Boulangists do not pretend to deny
that, ii the event of their own success in the
coming elections, they iropoas to remove
President Car not from his position at the
bead of the French republic, and that this
will le done at the point of the bayonet, if
necessary, and unless be yields to the wishes
of Boulanger, and bows to the expressed
w ill of the people. It can be very easily sur
mise.! that, in view of those and similar ex
pressions on the part of th Boulangists, and
the equally determined tone of their ene
mies, the outlook for October Is ominous.
SUICIDE IN HIGH LIFE.
A German Lady and Iter Lover End Thel

Munich, July 15. Munich is tremendously

great sensation, but the feeling developed
into positive excitement when it became

quarrel, under the excitement of which both

THE QUEEN'S BANK ACCOUNT.

public treasury for the Prince of W aids'
children on their approaching marriage,

iiciih people, and among other things it is
fluted i hut it will show the popular idsa that

Beaver's commission. Resolutions were
adopted to the effect that the funds have been
wasted; th t they should be immediately dis

maugh val ey people instead of outsiders,
and that the appointment of such com

by the grossest extravagance could such a
sum have len eipended. Charges are made

made in two places that an oath is exacted
of applicat) ts for relief as to their private in

General Wanamaker, when asked Saturday
about the truth of the report that be had
made an order re luring the rate on govern
ment telegrams from 1 cent to 1 mill per
word, said that he had suggested this rate
and notified the telegraph companies to this
effect To some of the companies that ob
jected to this rate he bad written a letter
which stated, among other things:
' I desire to say that the rate proposed was
fixed upon information furnished to this de
rtment that your company has been mak
ing rates to various large corporations that
are in some instances as low as the figure
now proposed for the government service.
itb the notice of this tact I would not be
justified in making for the government a
a new contract at higher rates than were
charged other patrons, especially so in view
of the privileges and benefits extended to
your compuny by acts of congress. I sub
mit to your own sense of right that the
government, under existing conditions, is en
titled to the inimiiuuin rate."
It is tin lerxtoo that the teleeraph compa
nies will soon have a hearing lief ore thehiost-
masttr general, and protest vigorously
against the enforcement of the order, which
they all contend fixes rates entirely too low
and which, if enforced, will compel them to
handle government telegraph business at a

Saturday for Honolulu a ca.t-iron screw
weighing over 8,000 pounds. This is intended
for the Nipsic, now at that port Th order
of Admiral Kimherly sending the Kipsie
home in tow of the Alert is looked upon as a
nufet remarkable one. When he ordered the
ship to Aucklnnd it was against the protest
of Commauder Mullan. The ship was with
out a rudder, and a jury rudder was rigged
by order cf Admiral kunberly. Before the
ship got out of the harlsir it broke, and it
was only by superhuman efforts that the
Nipsic was prevented from going on the reefs
for a second time. Once more she started,
and again broke dowu and had to return to
