Illinois democracy is again equipped
and ready for the fray. The loss which
the state organization sustained some
weeks since in the death of Chairman
Campbell, has been restored as far as the
efficiency of the state committee is con
cerned. Delos P. Phelps, of Monmouth,
has been unanimously chosen to fill the va
cant chairmanship, and those who are ac
quainted with that gentleman will unhes
itatingly agree that the mantle of the la
merited Mr. Campbell has fallen on
worthy sboalders. The unanimous man
ner in which Mr. Phelps was chosen is
certainly a high compliment to that gen
tleman, and should also be appre
rUleil by the democrats of this district.
With Mr. Phelps at the head of the state
central committee, the democrecy of
Illinois can rest assured that an active
nod aggressive campaign will ensue, and
that the state central committee will do
lis she re towards carrying Illinois and
sending John M. Palmer to the senate,

Delos P. Phelps, the newly elected
chairman of the committee, is a cent.e-
man of character and ability. He was
originally educated as a physician, but
never practiced bis profession, preferring
a business life. He moved to Mon
mouth many years ago, where he engaged
in the manufacture of plows antl ngricul'
tural implements, and today is at the
head of one of tbe largest manufactories
of that description in the state. Mr.
Pbelps has always been an enthusiastic
democrat, although steadily refusing to
accept office. One of tbe largest manu
facturers of iron and iron machinery in
the state, he is an earnest and able ad
vocate of tariff reform, putting his hos.
tility to a high tariff on tbe ground that
his prosperity lies in the prosperity of his
customers, and tbey are all farmers, so
that whatever hurts them hurls him. In
addition to Lis business success, Mr
Pbelps is a man of culture and reading.
and has always Tanked as one of tbe
leading democrats of Illinois.

A Little Poker Story from the

Aces Can Be Beat, So It Is Said Tbe

nnonco Some Incident of the Debate
Marriage of Margaret Blaine.
Washington Citt, May 17. The cor
respondent of a New York paper sent the
following story (which may or may not be
true) to his paper last nightf "A quiet
little game of poker was played in this
city Thursday night by six distinguished
gentlemen, each of whom is well known
as an expert. The party met in one of the
well known up town hotels and the play
ers were Senators Quay and Cameron, of
Pennsylvania; Farwell, of Illinois; Dave
Littler, of Springfield, ex-Pacific railroad
commiaaioner, and ex-Senator Sewell, of
New Jersey. It was a $10 limit game, and
there had been three raises before the
draw, when all the players went out ex
cept Senators Cameron and Farwell.
An Interesting Contest Begins.
Cameron stood pat and Farwell drew
two cards. Then the fun began. The
sympathy of the party was largely with
Mr. Cameron, for the reason that Farwell
is reputed to ha one of the best poker
players in the United States and the very
best in Washington. During the past few
months he has come off victorious in a
majority of the games he has played. It
was Cameron's bet, and he went the limit.
Farwell raised him, and Don bet him
again. Each saw that the other meant
business then, and they settled down to
work in earnest.
Cameron continued to bet and Farwell
continued to raise him until the process
had been repeated by them ten times. Far-
well finally became compassionate, nod,
dropping his cards said: "See here, Don,
I don't want to carry this thiug any fur
ther. I have a hand here that is simply
invincible, and it's foolsh for vou to buck
against it. 1 don't want to bet further
on a sure thing. Don has great nerve,
and told Farwell to go ahead and play his
hand for all it was worth.
Vou Don't Can't Sometime Always Tell
But Farwell would not take advantage
of his colleague, and with the remark
that he did not want to rob a man he said
"I call you," and carelessly threw on the
table four aces. Don quietly spread out
before the astonished gaze of Farwell a
straight diamond flush, seven spot high.
Farwell's onlyremark was: "Well, I'll be
blanked," and Cameron drew in the pot,
which contained a little more than $3H0.
THE DEBATE ON THE TARIFF.
Republican Objection to the Kiity an
Wasiiixgtov City, May 17. The com
mittee amendments to the tariff bill began
to come in yesterday, and the first one
struck a snag in the person of Henderson
of Iowa. The amendment increased the
duty on lamp chimneys. Henderson
asked McKinley how many lamp chimneys
were imported, and upon being told that
there was no exact data asked how he
i knew the duty should be increased. Mc
Kinley got out of this by saying that tbe
committee had done its best with the data
at hand, and was unanimous as to the ne
cessity of increase. Henderxon said he was
for protection, but he could not vote for
the amendment until shown good reason
for his vote that way. The amendment
was agreed to, however.
McKinley said that gentlemen might
complain here and there that they wanted
a dnty increased or lowered, but that they
forget that in the preparation of a bill
covering more than 3,000 articles the com
ml t tee had to go Into a consideration, not
of a single interest, bnt of all the varied
and combined interests of the United
States. Applause. Gentlemen on the
other side said that the duties in the bill
were too hinh. In the glass schedule of
the Mills bill the percentages ranged from
CO to 122 per cent. If that were a revenue
tariff, why should not the Republicans la-
crease that tariff and make it protective

gentlemen were to consider these matters
in a spirit of liberal compromise aivi in a
spirit of mutual concession. A good deal
was said about farm mortgages. Mort

HAMMERING AWAY AT SILVER.
The Senate Inclined to Exhaust It Argen-
, tlferon Subject.
Washisgtox Citt, May 17. The debate
In the senate yesterday was principally on
an amendment to the silver bill proposed
by Plumb, requiring that "hereafter no
funds available for the payment of the
public debt (including such as are kept for
the redemption of treasury notes) shall be
retained in the treasury to the extent ef
$110,000,000." Plumb's avowed object, in
his own words, were to provide that "the
treasury department should have nothing
whatever to do with the currency supply

thought that United States notes would
have any added value if a hundred million

"I do not," said Ingalls.
"Then that would have been equally un
necessary as to the gold reserve," said Aid-
"Absolutely , unnecessary." Ingalls as
serted. "It is a mere, vague superstition,
and nothing but that."

clause of the McKinley bill increasing the
duties ou silks, and relating to j?oods made

ment that would be satisfactory.

Washington Citt, May 17. The house

No Clue to Maria Wendle's
A MIDNIGHT STATION INCIDENT.
The Female rauenger an Operator Tells
About Result of the Father's Trip to
Indianapolis Discovery o( a Letter
That I Significant Fruitless Dragging
of the River Suspicion That M'endle
Know More Than He Tell.
Oakland, Ills., May 17. The mystery
surrounding the disappearance of Maria
Wendle, who was missed from the resi
dence of J. L. Brown a week ago last
night, is no nearer solution than it was
when the search for the lost girl began.
Her father and the lawyers who went to
Indianapolis on the search for her re
turned yesterday, and, although the law
yers clyim to have discovered a clue, Mr.
Wendle states positively that he has failed
absolutely to find any trace of his daugh
ter there. He went to Indianapolis last
week on the theory that the girl who had
embarked on the midnight train at New
man Friday, May 9, was his daughter, but
now he is not positive that it was she.
The Night Operator' Story.
The night operator at Newman says that
at midnight on the 6th a young man and
girl came to the depot. The girl purchased
a ticket for Indianapolis, the young man
who came with her keeping himself from
sight as much as possible. He did not get
on the train with the girl. Miss Wendle
ha4 two aunts at Indianapolis, both of
whom were seen by the father, but the
girl had not been seen by them. All
the hotels aud large boarding houses at
Indianapolis were visited, but the search
was fruitless. The conductor of the train
upon which the girl from Newman rode to
Indianapolis on the night train of the 8th
was found and his description tallies with
that of Miss Wendle.
Mixpicion Conduct ou the Cars.
He described the dress she wore and also 1
the hat. Further than this, he stated
that the girl was very uneasy on board the
cars and acted as though she was afraid of
something. At times she was crying.
During Wendle's absence a party of
neighbors have beeu dragging the river.
The stream is only two miles from the
Brown residence, and while many of the
neighbors believe that the girl was forci
bly abducted, there are not a few who be
lieve that she for some unknown reason
had drowned herself. The work of drag
ging the river progressed all day, but
nothing has !xvn found.
Telltale Letter Discovered.
Since the girl's effects have been exam
ined a letter has been found which throws
light on the case. It liears no date, nor is
it signed. It appears to have been writ
ten in a hasty manner on a page of diary
book. The letter advises the girl to have
courage, and not lie despondent, as every
thing would come out all right. It also
has become known that the girl had been
receiving letters through the Newman
postofflce under an assumed name. This
fact was ascertained from a young lady of
the neighborhood, who was an intimate
friend of the missing girl.
Wendle Art Mrantrly.
The neigblors have a suspicion that Mr.
Wendle knows more about the where
abouts of the girl than he is at the present
time willing to say. His wife Thursday
told her sister, so the latter says, that Mr.
Wendle had found out where his daugh
ter was but refused to tll the mother.
Mr. Wendle, when asked for information,
becomes very reticent and apparently an
noyed. In one or two instances, it is said,
he hns threatened his interrogators with
The Lawyer Lets Something Out,
Oue of the lawyers who accompanied
Mr. Wendle to Indianapolis is more com
municative than the latter, however. He
says that tbe girl's whereabouts are
known, and that she will be produced at
the proper time, and that a wealthy per
son will figure prominently in the lattr
developments of the case, much to his sor

bodies, all more or less burned, but most
of them could not be recognized. The

Judge Drumiuond was of Scotch de
scent, his grandfather having come from
Scotland before the Revolution. The
judge was born in Bristol, Lincoln county
Me... Oct. 17, l!SR, and the first experience
cf life away from home for the young man
was as a sailor. He sailed the raging
main nntil he was an expert mariner and
then began to study. He was graduated
from Bowdoin college in 1830. and studied
law at Philadelphia, being admitted to
practice there in March. 1KH. In 1S35 he
came to Illinois and settled in Galena. He
was elected as a Whig to the legislature in
140, and that was the only elective office
he ever held.
He Bfromfi Cnited Sttr Judge.
President Taylor appoiuted him United
States district judge for Illiuois in 1850
and in 1H54 he came to Chicago. He re
mained in office as United States judge of
various courts until 1&4, when he retired,
after thirty-four years service, and during
his service he won the respect, admiration
and affection of his fellow citizens. He

nection and consequent comparison with
many of tbe most eminent American
jurists of his generation. Judge Drum
