TUK SENATORIAL TOGA.
The Klat l: as Ue Forth That no B-
rllrMtatriaaa Shall be hene.
Tlie Union is at last happy; it has sue
ceeded in bringing out an avowed candi
rlale for state senator against the two
Ed?ington aspirants for that honorable
position. The gentleman is W. U. Moore,
the Molina attorney, whom it extols in
the following manner:
Mr. Moore has come to be recognized
aa one of the foremost lawyers of his
city, and his friends are fully -justified in
believing that be would represent the dis
trict in the senate with ability and credit,
lie has filled the office of city attorney,
and has built up a good professional prac
tice, while at the president of the Moline
Central Street Railway Co. he represents
the practical pushers who have done such
a wonderful ork in developing the pos
nihilities of the bluff region by means of
rapid transit electrk: cars. Mr. Moore
has aspired to go to the general assembly
several times before and was shut out by
geographical considerations, 'which now
seem to shape more favorably.
But the Union evidently proposes not to
place its whole reliance on Mr. Moore's
ability to shelve Messrs. Crawford and
Cozad. It has other senatorial timber in
view in case the Moline attorney doesn't
' develop sufficient strength, when he will
be asked to withdraw, and throw his
strength to such Rock Island candidate
as the city ringsters may designate. The
Union has two gentlemen in view which
it expects to use in such an emergency
They are Wm. Jackson and Ucn. W. A
Scbmilt, either of whom intimates that
the nomination would'nt be refused if
Although the Anncs has maintained
from the first that the city politicians
would never allow the senatorial nomin
alion to wander down into EJgington in
search for a keeper, still they actually
made Messrs. Crawford and Coz-td be
lieve that there would he no other candi
dates Let them not coddle that flitter
ing opinion any longer. The city bosses
have shown their band, and we would
advise Messrs. Crawford and Cozid to
bury the hatchet and pool their issues.
It seems that the Schuyler county de
mocracy, had a gooj, old-fashioned bn
rather prolonged convention. The dele
gates assembled at 11a. m.. and things
ran pretty smoo:hly until the nomination
for sheriff came up. Four names were
placed in nomination, and no less than
140 ballots were taken before a nomina
tion wu effected. About 3 o'clock in the
morning interest began to lag, and the
desire to close the tedious contest result
ed in choosing Mr. John S. Greer as the
candidate. In regard to the congressional
instruction the Schuyler Time says:
Oa motion of Web. Leonard, of Brook
lyn township, the delegates to the con
gressional convention were Instructed to
support a. B. Montgomery for congreas
While it was a surprise to the delegates,
the motion was adopted unanimously. It
was also a surprise to Judee Montgom

Official News Notes.
Washington City, May 24. During
the debate in the house yesterday on the
river and harbor bill Post made a gallant
effort, assisted by Springer and other Bli-
nois members, to induce the house to
adopt an amendment appropriat ing $125,
000 for a gorernment surrey of tlie Illinois
from Joliet down to the Mississippi. Post
pointed out that a similar appropriation
had been made in the last con ress for a
survey from Ijike Michigan to Juliet, and
that the extension of the survey was im
portant to the further progress of the
greatest waterway enterprise now In con
templation in this country.
A t;reat Scheme Outlined,
lie said that without doubt the city of
Chicago would go ahead and co nstruct a
canal from the lake to the river capable of
floating large lioats, and tfiat tho improve
ment of the Illinois below Joliet gare the
gorernment an opportunity t connect
with the Chicago drainage cb innel and
make the most magnificent system of in
terior water communication in the world.
He quoted Capt. Marshall's last report to
show that opeuing up a ship ctnal from
Chicago to the Mississippi would give a
water route 12,000 miles in length, in
cluding the lakes and the Missi ssippi and
its tributaries, or more than equal to one
half the circumference of the gjobe.
A point of order made byHilman was
overruled, and it looked like it would go
through, when Gen. lleuderson, chair
man of the committee, spoke in opposition
to it, and made the point that an appro
priation of so much importance should be
considered by the committse, and it failed
by only twenty votes. Vandeerof Cali
fornia made a stirring sjieech in favor of
tlie Illinois route, and pointed out the
folly of trying to reach the "Mi.issippi by
an artificial channel, which must cross a
divide 200 feet high, when a natural chan

Hesaid that but forthe jealoiLsyexisting be
tween St. Ixmis ami Chicago, congress
would long ago have taken bold of this
great opportunity to open up it waterway
almost as important to the commerce of
the world as the canal at Panaina or Suez.
Looked at with Suspicion.
In the discussion of the clause appropri

was made manifest that thcr; is a good
deal of suspicion about the Hennepin
scheme, ami that while the point of no

that the appropriation will lie left in the
bill. Without doubt the lllim is river im
provement in connection with t he Chicago
drainage channel is becoming stronger

comes lietween Hennepin and the river, as
it will lie pretty sure to come some day, it
is more than likely that the river will

KEMMLER'S CASE DECIDED.
Slust Die by
Washington City, May The ques
tion whether a state can kill its criminals
by the use of electricity was d jcided by the
supreme court yesterday, Chief Justice
Fuller delivering the opinion, and it was
an affirmative one. The cot rt goes into
the definition of the term "ituuI and un-
nsnal punishment as used in the consti
tution and says it means that death shall
not be inflicted by torture.such as burning.
breaking on the wheel, etc., but not
that death Itself is cruel and unusuaL A
change in the form of deaih is clearly
within the right of a state to make. The
punishment in Kemmler's cise might be
unusual, liecause it was new, but that did
not make it cruel.
As to Privileges and Immunities.
The court makes a distinction between
the privileges and immunities of a citizen
which are protected by the constitution
and says that the privileges iind immuni
ties of citizens of the United States as dis
tinguished from the privileg and immu
nities of the citizens of thentates are in
deed protected by it; bntthnee are privi
leges and immunities arlsiig out of the
nature and essential charac ter of the na
tional government, and they do not em
brace the privileges and immunities of
the citizens of the state. T le enactment
of the electric execution st atute was in
itself within the legitimate sphere of t
legislative power of the stati, and the leg
islature having determined that it does
not inflict cruel and unusual punishment,
and been sustained therein by its courts,
the supreme court does not think it has
committed so gross an errot as to justify
it in interfering.
STANFORD'S FINANCIAL SCHEME.
The California Senator Oiv es a Brief Ex
planation of His 13111.
Washington Citt, May 34. Stanford
addressed the senate y ester lay in advoca
cy of his bill "providing for loans by the
government on agricultural lands. "The
principle of the government loaning money
upon property," he said, "Js completely es
tablished in its present advance of SO per
cent, upon government bonds. The tre
mendous results of energi ng this 90 per
cent, and putting it into a tivity are ap
parent to all. j;jually jva luable witlbe
I the energizing or t f.-e latent Topees ot real
estate. The bill confines its y-rovisions for
Joans rb agricultural lands, but in time
they will probably lie extended to some
other kinds of property, and even to mu
nicipalities with proper restrictions.
"Creation'! of Money Conceded.
"But for the present I desire to f con
servative and take no chances. The power
of the government to create money is con
ceded, and its value is the same, whether
metal or paper Th important point is
that it should be itampea by a government
whose credit isumimpeachable and which
has the Hwer of making money. The"
money issued is not intended to ac
commodate the farmer nlone, but as it
comes into circulation it will put the
means of prosperity within the reach of
those who are engaged in the smaller and
larger industries of the country. The bill
provides for what may, perhaps, not im
properly be termed a revolution in finance,
and I do not expect that it will be adopted
until it has been fully considered by the
people and has met with their approval."
Itutterworth and Coleman Explain.
Washington - Citt, May 24. Butter
worth and Coleman have explained their
votes on the McKinley tariff bill. Butter
worth says he voted aye on final passage
liecause he is a protectionist and a Kepub-
ran and the bill is a protection bill. He
voted against certain provisions because
he thought they went too far. He thinks
the senate will prove to be more in "sym
pathetic touch with the people" than the
house iri thiscase. Coleman says he voted
nay because the only industry of his con
stituents was sugar growing and the bill
gives free t rade in that. He has no faith
in Imunties, as he thinks them uncertain
Hoars's Financial Joke.
Washinuton Citv, May 24. The old
tradition that Hoar never appreciates or
perpetrates a joke has lieen found to be a
myth. During Jones' exhaustive speech
on the silver question a few days ago, he
referred to the fact that way back in the
ancient days of the old commonwealth of
Massachusetts seashells were used as
money. Hoar nodded his venerable head
in approval, ami whispered to Grav: "Yes,
and very good money it was.too. If a per
son in those days wanted to onier a dozeu
on the half-shell, he could do so in per
fect safety, knowing that he could pay for
them w ith the shells."

er. Good evening, sir," the old prelate re
plied cheerily. "I hope yon are well."
"I am mt," the man said rather ab
ruptly. ! hare a pain in my heart that is
bothering me very much, and I'm afraid
I'm going to die."
"Have you lieen drinking?" the priest
asked, noticing for the lirst time the
Btranger's fiery complexion and the pe
culiar expression of his eyes.
No, 1 have not, was the reply; The
only thing that ails me is my heart.
"Then yon had lietler go home aud rest
yourself," was the priest's advice.
The man turned abruptly on his heel
and took a step or two in the direction of
the stairs, when he suddenly wheeled
around and again faced the priest, lie
fore the latter could comprehend the
movement the stranger had drawn a
large revolver from his pocket and leveled
it at point blank range.
A Murder Most 1'oul.
'What do you mean tiian?' the helpless
invalid cried, as he caught sight of the
glittering barn 1 of the revolver. The av
swer was a flash and a reiMirt. Father
Barrett pitched headlong from his chair,
and fell at full length on the porch, feebly
crying for help. hen his servant
reached him he hud hardly enough
strength left to tell them that be had lieen
shot by a stranger, aud that he nettled the
immediate attent ion of a surgeon. The old
priest was lifted from the Mirch, carried
to bis room aud laid on a lied, l'.l.ssl was
gushing from an ugly wound in his alxlo-
men in a perfect torrent, dyeing the linen
olthelietla deep red. 1'livsicians were
hastily summoned, ami after a hasty ex
animation of Father Itarn-tt's wound they
agreed that his chance for life was small.
and that a difficult and dangerous ois-r
tion would Is' tieces.ary. not only to deter
mine the exact nature of the injury, but to
remove the bullet from its resting place
among the intest ines.
One Chance In a Thousand.
Dr. Christian Fetiger, of the county hiis
pital surgical staff, was called in. but lie
fore ho liegauthe fi r.ttion said that it
might result in death. In 'act. he plainly
intimated that the sufferer did not have
one chance in a thousand to pull through
the ordeal alive. "Without the operation,"
said the doctor, "he cannot live. Death in
a short time is almost certain. With the
operation he has just one chance to sur
vive." Father Barrett's friends, when
they heard this ultimatum, unhesitating
ly gave their acquiescence to the doctor's
Arrest of the Aatn. .
After Kc.idy shot Father Barrett he
coolly replaced the pistol in his pocket,
walked down Sangamon street to Indiana
and then tu rn.nl cast, in the direction of
Halsted street. He entered King's sa
loon, near the corner, and called for
whisky, which he gulped down with ap
parent relish. He called for another drink
and was about to help himself when Of
ficer Loft us, w ho had lieen apprised of
the shooting, placed him under arrest.
Keady offered no resistance. When the
officer took the big revolver from his
pocket he held his hands above his head
and saiil he had no more use for it.
Did It fur Scir-Preservation.
"I did want to kill Alderman Phil
Young and my brother Joe," he said, but
I've gotten over that now." There were
threats of lynching, but the prisoner was
safely bulged in the station. I know I
killed Father Barrett," bevelled at the top
of his voice, "but I had to do it to save my
own life. If I hadn't I would have died. My
heart won Id have ceased to lieat." He
followed this declaration with a series ol
maniacal ' screams and gestures that
alarmed the crowd and . st Lt timid ineu
and Iniys scurrying in every direction.
While tin his way to the West Chicago
Avenue station Keady was defiant. He
refused to answer questions ami not until
he was placed bchiud the liars of a cell did
he again open his mouth.
Went to Conft-ssion Thursday.
"I simply couldn't help it," he said. "1

that to Father Barrett and he praised me

was affected and that I was inclined l

week ago I went to Milwaukee aud saw an
eclectic physician. He told me to do some
thing. I knew it was wrong. I told him
so. I came back to Chicago and my heart
began to hurt me. I felt that those peo

going to die without getting even. . When
I went up to speak to Father Barrett my
