In an article on Illinois politics the
New lork Star has the following to say
on the candidacy of Gen. Pa!mer for the
United States senatorship:
An unusual political struggle has lately
begun in Illinois. Gen. John M. Palmer
is a candidate for the United States sena
torshiD now held by Senator Farwell.
Gen. Palmer i a democrat, and although
he has not been Dominated for the office
by any convention or caucus, he is recog
nized aa the preference of his party.
Plans are already making for him to
stomp the state during the summer and
fall, and the issue of his election to the
senatorship will be directly made in the
choice of members of the next legisla
ture. These tactics have aroused much en
thusiasm among the democrats through
out the state, and there is corresponding
depression in republican ranks. Gen.
Palmer is a man whose character is
above reproach, and whose ability is un
questioned, and the republicans are find
ing it hard to match him.
But the contest is of special signifl
cance in that it practically gives the elec
tion of a senator Into the hands of the
people, instead of leaving it with unin
atructed .legislators or secret legislative
caucuses to determine. This is a move in
the direction of more wholesome politics.
It is honest, straightforward and open,
and commends itself to the approval of
all patriotic citizens.
The outcome of the experiment of Illi
nois will be watched with interest all over
the country. The state and the senate
will be gainers if Palmer shall be substi
tuted for Farwell. Furthermore, notice
will have been served upon other states
that the will of the whole people must
atand in preference to that of party man
agers in the important matter of the elec
tion of United States senators.

A Letter That Bayne Bead Wakes Cp the
Wrath or the Indiana Member, Who
Hurls His Ttannnciatloa Seething Hot
at the Head of the Pennsylvanlan By
nnm Called Before the Bar and Cen
sorial, But Protesting 'That the Censure
Is a Decoration of Honor.
Washington Citt, May 19. The house
Saturday indulged in one of its periodical
riots, the end of the turbulence lieing
reached at 10:30 p. m., when one of the
members received the censure of the
house, administered by the speaker, and
defiantly declared the said censure to be a
decoration of honor. The little unpleas
antness was the sequel of an incident
which happed a few days previously, and
was precipitated by Bayne of Pennsylva
nia. A day or two ago during the tariff
debate Bynntn of Indiana aud Wilson of
West Virginia denounced James Camp
bell, a Pittsburg glass manufacturer, as a
perjured liar. Bayne defended his con
stituent, and said he would as soon take
Campbell's word as that of either of the
gentlemen who had denounced him. The
cause of Bynum's denunciation was that
Campbell had said on oath that the former
and Wilson during an interview with
Campbell declared that flo per month was
enough wage1? for a workman iu glas
Campbell Returns the Iennnrintiou.
Saturday, while speaking to a verbal
amendment to the tariff bill in commit
tee of the whoft, Bayne sent to the clerk's
desk and had read a letter from Campbell
denying the statements reflecting upon
his character made by Bynura and Wil
son. In his letter he strougly attacked
these gentlemen, and used vigorous lan
guage in denunciation of them. An at
tempt was made to have the letter strick
en from the record, but it was unsuccess
ful, which the Democrats complained bit
terly of. After the reading there was a
storm over the above point, but the chair
ruled that the gentleman who presented
the letter was responsible for whatever it
saia. lie also ruled, amid the greatest con
luMiou ani uproar, that it presented a
question of personal privilege. All the
time Bynum stood quietly awaiting an
opportunity w speaK, but evidently very
Wortls Heard Above the t'proar.
The Republicans shouted him down
whenever he opened his mouth, evidently
taking tne view of Bayne. who wi
-heard above the confusion saying in effect
that t anipbell had been attacked and he
had presented the letter in Campbell's de
fense; at the same time Breokinridtte of
Kentucky shouted that it was not fair to
silence the man who had leen attacked.
while the sponsor of the Slanderer stood in
the latter's shoes. Bayne was heard to de
clare that Campbell was the equal in
every respect of the member from Ken
tucky; aud Breckinridge to axsert that he
had no doubt that the memlierfrom Penn
sylvania tMk the man as his standard of
manhood. The Democrats complained of
the chair for partiality, but Reed said he
had permitted nothing. What had lieen
said had been said in defiance of the chair
on both niiles. Finally McKinley ap
pealed for lair play and Bynum got the
floor in quiet.
H vitum Dcnoancei Bayno.
The Indiana representative then stated
tne cnarge ne nan against l ampbell, as
stated above, and proceeded to remark that
since Bayne had constituted himself the
"sewer" here Cheadle cslled him to order.
and made the point that "sewer"' was un
parliamentary, and it was so ruled by the
speaker. Bynum withdrew it, and substi
tuted "conduit pipe," which "went." He
was not to le balked of bis retort, how
ever, and proceeded as follows: "I w ant to
say now that I accept and am williug to
believe that 1 have as creat confidence ju
the character of Mr. Campliell as I have in
the character of the gentleman who makes
th bttack upon me." (Excitament and
uproar. Bynum had previously stated
the character of Campliell to lie that of
perjurer and liar.
A Itesolation of Cenxure.
As soon as he could be heard Cutcheon
rose aud demauded that the above words
lie taken down and read, which was done.
He theu moved that the committee rise
aud report the words to the bouse. This
carried, and after a good deal of filibuster
ing ou the part of the Democrats, the
speaker counting a quorum at onetime
and refusing to recognize a motion at an
other ou the ground that it was plainly
dilator-, Cutcheon offered resolutions re
quiring Byn urn to be brought to the bar
of the house and censured. Then there
was more filibustering by the Ilemocrata,
who insisted that the provocation justified
Bynnm's words. Springer said the resolu
tion was without precedent; whereupon
Cntcheon said it was a copy of one
offered in the Forty-seventh congress,
but which was not adopted because the of
fending member. Van Vorhis of New
York, had apologized both to the house
and the gentleman referred to. If Bynum
would make as ample and manly retrac
tion, he (Cutcheonj would gladly with
draw his resolution. '
MrKinley's Statement of the Case.
The previous question was finally or-
-dered, and then McKinley said that no man
could regret more sincerely than he the
unfortunate proceedings that had led up
to the resolutions now pending. Speaking
fur himself laud he believed for the gen
tlemen on his side) he would infinitely
prefer to give a vote of commendation for
the gentleman from Indiana than to give
a vote of censure or condemnation, but
sweeping aside the passions which had
swayed from one side of the chamber to
the other, what was the question present
ed? Was the language which bad been
read unparliamentary 'and in violation of
the rules of the house and the decorum of
parliamentary debater That was the only
question ujHin which members were to
vote, not as partisans, but as judges.
Provocation Ao Justification.
Did any one doubt that the words were
unparliamentary and in violation of the
rules of the house t Some gentlemen said
that the words were justified. No words
were justified in violation of the rules of
the body and the decorum of parliamentary
proceedings. Republican applause. Lan
guage might be provoked. There might
he provocation fur the use of unparlia
mentary language in the heat of debate;
sometimes every member indulged in it;
but that was noexcuae. The only thing left
for the gentleman from Indiana to do was
to aay In the house thai he had violated its
rules, a;-.d that he had violated the decorum
which belonged to this parliamentary body.
Republican applause. "
Bynum Appears at the Bar.
Upon the demand of Springer tha ques
tion was divided, but both divisions were
adopted, the Democrats voting solidly
against them, and being joined' by Mo
Kenna of California, Then Bynum, lean
ing on the arm of Holman of Indiana, ap
peared at the bar, accompanied by all bis
Democratic associates who could find room
in the limited space, and who were loud in
their applause. The speaker obtained order
and requested gentlemen to take their
eats. Springer, acting as spokesman for
his party, declined to do so. Sergeant-at-arms
Holmes then said: "Mr. Bynum, by
resolution of the house of representatives,
you are required to appear before the bar
of the house to receive the censure of that
body through its speaker." The speaker
again requested members to take their
seats, and the Democrats again refused to

a secret session the senate adjourned.
The house passed the day first iu adopt
ing committee amendments to the tariff
bill, and theu stayed in session until 10:30
p. m. with a riot on its hands caused by
an acrimonious controversy bet wen Bayne
and Bynum, the latter having implied
that Bayne was a liar and perjurer, for
presenting a letter and having it read from
James Campliell, of Pittsbi rg, whom
Bynum hail a few days ago de louneed as
a perjured liar. The letter deui xi Bynum's
charge and vigorously attached Bynum.
The end of the trouble was that Bynum
was censured in oliedience to a resolution
of the house, by the speaker, n.-arly all the
Democrats standing up with him. All the
committee amendments to ti e tariff bill
were adopted, the most impo -tant lieing

George II. nd Klla B. Daniell. Mrs. Dan
iell is an attractive lady about 33 years of
age. Her hair is slightly gray, but she has
a beautiful'form, and is bright and intel-ligent-in
conversation, and would wiu at
tention anywhere Mr. and Mr. Daniell
were marriel in 1S70, and have one child,
a son, who is in the eustody of the defen
dant. The husband and wife voluntarily
lived apart for five years previous to the
commencement of the present suit.
A I.esKon In Marital Fidelity.
Mr. Daniell accuses his wife of infidel
ity. He offers in support of his accusation
a letter received from his wife. In which is
the following: ''The imprudent things
which I have done have lieen done since I
have satisfied myself of your criminalcon
duet. Every one has said that it is no worse
for me to receive attention from gen
tlemen than for you to pay attention to
othet women, anil I have liegun to think
so myself." She then tells of having gone
riding with a gentleman and having
stayed at a hotel over night lieing unable
to get back. She avers, however, in her
bill, that she has always lie a true and
faithful wife and has done her utmost to
make their married life happy and har
monious. Beeinntai of the Trouble.
Thev had lived happily together till Mr.
Daniell became acquainted with married
woman named Fannie Copeland. From
his acquaintance with this woman the do
mestic trouble began. He permitted this
woman to go to his room, the defendant
alleges, and remain all night with him, al
though Mrs. Diiniell remonstrated with
him very strongly and did what she
could to break up the liaison. She denies
every allegation of her husband re
flecting upon her honor except what is ad
mitted in the foregoing letter, says that
she has no means with which to prosecute
her defense, nor has she means of support
during the pendency of the suit for herself
and her child, and therefore asks that her
husband be required to furnish her with
means to pay attorneys' fees and to sup
port herself and son.

that she was seen at the Vnion station the
morning after she left h.ne, Hnd Chief

city now in hiding from her parents.
"There is a rich young farmer near Oak

Information or the girl s presence in it.
The Man in the Case.
The man who is responsible for the
girl's desertion of her parents lives near
Oakland, and has a brother living in this
state. The latter, I think, came here and
made arrangements to have the girl cared
for, because she could not have found so
secret a place of concealment without the
aid of some one more experienced than
she. Mr. Wendle wants to bring criminal
and civil proceeding against the young
tanner, ami it is absolutely necessary to
get the girl to return home liefore this can
be done. There is big money back of the
effort to keep the girl from her father, and
we are doing ourliest to assist iu restoring

1,721 Prairie avenue, Saturday evening,
after only two hours' illness. Only his
wife and a physician were with him when
he drew his last breath. The disease of
which Mr. Dexterdied was angina eetoirs
Always a vigorous, healthy mau and an
untiring worker, Mr. Dexter paid very lit
tle attention to physical ailments which
would have made others think they were
sick men, and he has often overtaxed his
strength while at work on some of the im
portant cases which have constantly of
late years engaged his atteutfcm.
Taken 111 While at Work.
Saturday he was at work in hw office all
day, and, the business , he had on hand
being urgent, he stayed up over hours on
it, neglecting to go home to dinner at 6
o'clock As was his custom. At 7 o'clock,
while almost alone iu his office, he was
seized with suddeu and severe pains in
his chest, which caused him te stop his
work, and he sent out for a physician. The
doctor who responded saw that Mr. Dex
ter was a very sick man, and calling a car
riage the lawyer was lielped into it and
driven rapidly to his home, where he ar
rived a little before S o'clock, and in one
hour was dead.
The Dead Mall's Career.
Wirt Dexter was the grandson of Sam
uel Dexter, a memlier of the cabinet of
President John Adams. His ability in the
practice of law was a characteristic of the
llexter family, many of its members hav
ing attained prominence at the bar. Wirt
Dexter was born at Dexter, a little town
in Michigan, in 1S:W. The little town re
ceived its name from the family, and its
greatest boast was that it was the home of
the Dexter. The early years of his life
were spent in the town, and there he be
gan his education in the common schools.
Later he attended the Michigan universi
ty at Ann Arbor for a slrort time, and then
entered an eastern college, where he
finished his education.
His Krniotsl to Chirac's
He was a zealous student and applied
himself closely to his books, thus laying
the basis for the great learning that later
in his career made him prominent liefore

from college he returned home. Not hav
ing determined on his future course he en
gaged in the- lumU-ring business in the
nort hern peninsula of Michigan. This did
not satisfy him, and about twenty-seven
years ago he came to Chicago. Filtering
the law-office of Sedgwick & Walker, he
began thef'study of law and alxint two
years later was admitted to the bar.

Representative Mills takes up three col
