Mr. Augus . Iluesing, of this city, was
made assistant secretary of the Illinois
Slate Liquor Dealers' association at Peo

recited at length the growth and progress
of the order c uring the past year. The
introductory paragraph of the report
generalized the bulk of its subject mat
ter, and is given herewith:
To the Tenth Annual Convention of
the State Protective Association of Illi
nois Gentlenen: Your board of trus
tees, in prese iting their annual report of
the events f f the past year, desire to
congratulate lhe members of this associa
tion upon its steady and healthy growth,
its sound financial standing, and conse
quently increased usefulness. The un
yielding resiitance of this organization
for the past ten years to the attempted
encroachments of the temperance fanat
ics upon lb personal rights and
freedom of those engaged in the
liquor traftis, the material assis
tance render id its members in their
legal battles in the courts of this state,
and its cons .ant efforts to expose the
false and abiurd claims of the prohibi
tionists that all the evils to which flesh
is heir are dir ictly traceable to alcoholic
beverages, have been productive of much
good, and have gradually won for this
association the confidence and esteem of
the liquor defers of this stale, and that
they consider it "good to be one of of us"
is shown by tie additions to our member
hip. Tha future of this organisation,
and that of ILe cause in which it Is en
listed, never appeared so bright and
promising as at the present time, and
never before in its history have its mem
bers had the opportunity of rejoicing
over so many overwhelming and disas
trous defeats tuflered by their opponents.

Yesterday more work was accom-.
plisbed in the way of paving than has
been done in a single day since the great
enterprise was commenced. On the
south side of Second avenue, facing on
Market square, 435 yards of double
course were put down before 5 o'clock,
Today the north side of vthe avenue for
the same distance is being paved. To
morrow morning the contractors will be
gin at the west side of Fourteenth street
and work this way. Five car loads of
Galesburg brick were received this morn
The oppositionists to the removal of
the knoll on Second avenue, between
Sixteenth and west Seventeenth, peti
tioned the mayor this morning to veto
the ordinance reestablishing the proper
grade; the mayor politely replied that
he did not believe in vetoes, but did not
express himself in the present case. It
is safe to presume that he will not
exercise his prerogative in a case of so
much vital importance to the city. Re
newed threats of injunction were then
heard, but reason and consistency war
rant the conclusion that such talk is idle.
No application has so far been made for
one. As said before, injunctions are
liable to prove an expensive undertaking,
and could not be made too much so in

Thai I Apparently 8a, bat They Have
Their Wit About Them.
If there is any place where one needs to
koep all his wits about him it is in the mis
sion Sunday school. The urchins who are
there gathered together have no reverence
for either things sacred or things profane,
and they are ready to question anything and
everything said to them with a frankness
and a boldness which Is eminently discon
certing to any one not accustomed to this
ort of thing.
They are not above playing tricks and lay
ing snares for their teachers. On one occa
sion a young rapscallion in a North End
school remarked in a sanctimonious tone:
"My father drinks. "
The unwary teacher, falling into the trap,
began to talk to the class of the evils of in
temperance, and of how much little Johnny
was to be pitied for having a father who was
piveu to the dreadful habit of intemperance.
She waxed eloquent, and spoke at considera
ble length, secretly feeling that she had never
done better, and that she must surely make
an impression upon her pupils.
And then when she had made an end
of sieaking, and all the class were supposed
to lie in an eminently edified condition of
mind, little Johnny finished his sentence with
an air so innocent as to deceive, if it were
poaiible, even the very elect.
"My fathnr," he said, "drinks water."
And he smiled confidingly into the face of
bis teacher, as if he were sure of her ap
proval, and as if he enjoyed the approval of
a clear conscience; as indeed very likely be
On another day when a teacher was en
deavoring to Impress upon a class of news
lioys the beauty of righteousness, and to glva
them some sort of a leaning toward the paths
of decency, sobriety and godliness, an impu
dent, saucy faced youngs-tor, known among
his eoiuiwiiions as "Bully Sam," leaned for
ward and, holding out to her a battered nickel
which bad tbe general appearance of having
been run over by a home car, observed:
"I say, uow, I'll give you that to stop."
It may he judged how much effect the les
son had after that.
Htill again, a clever Boston girl bad under
taken the task of instructing a pew full of
newsboys, bootblacks and telegraph messen
gers, and the lesson chanced to be upon the
raising of Lazarus. Taking into account the
fact that the boys knew of the telegraph, and
finding that it was very hard to interest them,
she turned the talk to electricity by asking if
there was any way in which the dead could
be raised to life, and going on to say that
there had been people who believed that it
could be done by electricity.
She found that she bad at last gained their
attention, and, dreading to Ion it afaia, ahe
went on a little with her talk about the force
and its manifestations. Tbe boys listened in
tently, and presently one of- the dirtiest and
most reprehensible of the gang gnve a hitch
to his ragged trousers expressive of satisfac
tion and interest.

Lu lea's Great Elevator.
The great elevator built on the quay at
Lulea, by the (Swedish-Norwegian Railway
company, for loading ore direct into ships,
has now been finished, and its operation is
reported to lie a success, the elevator raioiug
three trucks simultaneously in two minutes,
the same being then moved along the rails to
shoots leading into tbe bold of the ship, and
emptied. The whole arrangement is said to
be ao perfect that a ship of some 8.500 tons
may be loaded in a day. In tbe engine room
are two engines of sixty horse power each,
steam being supplied by three boilers. The
engines pump water into two accumulators,
whence it flows through underground pipes
to the elevator, which it will raise witb a
load of 120 tons on it the hydraulic pressure
being equal to twenty atmospheres, or at the
rate of 800 pounds per square inch. New
