By order of the Democratic Congressional Com
mlttee of the Eleventh congressional district of
II inots. J. W. POTTEK, Chairman
Mohmonth, 111., Jnly 12, 1S90.
Why don'i the Union attempt tovin
timidate tbe Peoria Journal, a paper of
its own political faith, for its opposition
to Bro. Geat.
The Farmers' alliance of the Sixth
congressional district, held a large and
enthusiastic convention at Free port last
week, and nominated Andrew Ashton, of
Rock ford, for congrcsB. The section of
tbe platform in regard to the tariff reads
That we are in favor of such a tariff as
will raise a revenue sufficient to carrv on
the affairs of government as administered
on an economic basis and no more, and
that such tariff should be levied on such
articles of importation as will make tbe
tax less burdensome to tbe laboring
The democratic convention will un
doubtedly endorse Ashton, and the pros
pects for retiring Congressman Ifitt are
very flattering, indeed.
The Washington Pott, an independent
newspaper, edited by Frank Hatton, a
former high republican official, says that
from a business standpoint tbe Lodge
election bill is a hundred-fold more dan
gerous than tariff-for-revenue-only legis
lation. It is calculated to create dissen
sions that would last for a generation.
and the progress the country has made
since the close of the civil war would
suffer a disastrous reaction. It is a grave
question with which tbe state is 'con
fronted. Its importance to the whole
country is so momentous as to call for
action entirely outside of complications
and free of entangling alliances. Let the
senate put a quietus on tbe lodge bill and
all similar legislation, and let it be done
because of patriotic motives because tbe
welfare of tbe people of all sections de
mands that it be quieted.
DraisrriM dales IIIidoIm.
In speaking of the recent session of
tbe democratic slate committee in Chi
cago, the correspondent of the St. Louis
Chairman Delos P. Phelps presided,
and talks verv enthuaimitipHllv Yin o
expect to elect Palmer? Well, yes, I
inougni mat was a foregone conclusion,
aid the chairman after the sessions were
over. We expect to do some good work
in Illinois this fall. There was not a
man before the committee this morning
who did not bring us cheering news,
something fresher and better than we
bad beard before. It appears that this is
to be a democratic year in Illinois. There
are rosny reasons for this, but tbe
principal one is that the people of Illi
nois, especially tbe farmers, are tired of
paying $35 for a $15 suit of clothes for
the purpose of supporting plutocracy.
It is a positive fact that the republican
party in Illinois, is sadly divided, and
there is nothing in the campaign to in
spire enthusiasm. We shall command a
larger following from the young men of
the state this fall than we have ever had
before. Tbe young rcen in the republi
can party feel that they have been kept
in tbe background by a system of old
fogyism wii5cb has obtained in the res
publican party or Illinois for a number of
years, and which the young meu have
come to dominate by the title of 'ring.'
The only way to throw off this obnox
ious element is to overthrow the party,
and tbe time has come when this is going
to be done."
A MYSTERY OF THE RAIL.
Arrest of a Mortally Wotimlml Flremaa
on ('barge or Killing Hla Engineer.
Van Wert, o., July 21. During tbe
night of Friday Samuel Madison Tanrle
vanter, engineer of a train on the Cincin
nati, Jackson aud Mackinaw railway, was
killed on his engine while running from
Cincinnati northward aud about two
miles south of this place. The fireman,
Samuel Road house, said the engineer waa
killed by a strange man, who suddenly
appeared on the engine and struck him a
number of blows on the head with some
blunt instrument. Koad lions? also said
the stranger attacked him and knocked
him senseless. The train ran on un
guarded and finally collided with a freight
engine in tbe yards here, but the collision
waa not sufliciently severe to wreck the
train, and the passengers all escaped un
injured. Conductor Peabody, however,
"tad a font smashed.
Some Later Development,
It is now found that Road house himself
is probably fatally wounded, and he has
been placed under arrest on suspicion of
having murdered the engineer. The the
ory of the detectives is that the two men,
who had been quarreling for several days,
became engaged in a fight with the result
heretofore published. Roadbonae, how
aver, InsiKts that he is innocent and that
be and Vsnileveantef were assaulted by
an unknown man. An ex-convict named
Blair Moeck, who had been sent to tha
penitentiary on Vandeveanter's testimony,
and who had sworn to kill the latter, is
being searched for. A man answering
Mock's description was on the train at the
time of the tragedy.

LoxDox, July 81. Tbe sending of the
Grenadier guards to Natal as a punish
ment for insubordination has caused a
great commotion among these unlucky
trien and their families. The barracks
where the Grenadiers are located are be
sieged by hundreds of wives and sweet
hearts, bewailing the fnje that either sep
arates them from husband and lover or
compels them to follow to a distant aud
inhospitable clime. The scenes witnessed
at the interviews between these compan
ions in raiHfortune are both pathetic and
amusing.' In some cases the sorrow over
necessary parting is manifestly genuine;
in other cases it is apparently all on the
side of the one who is to be left behind.
It is not known just when the departure
will take place, and it Is reported that tbe
authorities will keep the place and hour
of sailing secret, so as to avoid commotion
and unpleasant incidents as much as pos
sible. The trouble which resulted in the
startling order that the guards should be
sent abroad is merely a section of the
wave of unrest which is sweeping all over
the United Kingdom. Not alone the aris
tocracy, but the middle classes also, of
England, are deeply stirred over tbe man
ifestation of discontent, of which, The
London Times says, "there is much about
in all ages, classes and occupations.
Gave the Colonel a Hint.
It has been many years since England
has witnessed anything like a mutiny
among English soldiers, but this move
ment came so near being a mutiny that it
is the subject of rigid official investiga
tion. The second battalion of the Grena
dier guards, in which the so-called mutiny
occurred, has lately lost many excellent
men because of rigid discipline, and the
whole British army is suffering from the
same cause. This fact even the military
authorities are beginning to appreciate.
and it is understood that C'al. Maitland, of
the guards, has received a quiet admoni
tion to be less energetic in discipline.
Trouble Among; the Workers.
The trades uuious are also everywhere
moving for increase of pay and shorter
hours. The ship joiners of the Thames
have succeeded in their demand for an
increase of wages to 7 shillings a day; tbe
.Northumberland coal owners have agreed
to an advance; the laborers in the Royal
dock yard at Sheerness have passed reso
lutions calling for an increase of wages,
and urging, somewhat reasonably, that
the government ought to set an example
to private employers of labor by payiug a
fair day s wages for a fair day's work,
The newspapers are still discussing the

Attended, as tbe strike was, by deter

ance, and at length compelled a large and
prosperous city, through its authorities.
to yield to their terms, it is the most por
tentous event tn labor annals that h
ever occurred in England. The Leeds city
council has been obliged to buy off for
$".25,000 the claims of the men who were en
gaged to take the place of the strikers,
ana who were hired for several months
and all discharged at the demand of the
striker when they returned to work at
their own terms.
ARRANGED FOR THE PRINCE.
A Prize Fight. Fixed lp for Wales'
London, July 21. Tbe sporting event of
the week, if the secret had not leaked out
and prevented it, would have been the
prize light especially arranged for the
Prinoe of Wales during his visit to New-
market. It is four years now since his
royal highness was publicly seen at an
amusement of that character. The prince
was the guest at Newmarket last week of
Lord Marcus Bereaford. Some aristocratic
sportsmen arranged that a fight should
come off at Abbingdon's county bouse,
Bedford lodge, between Charles Roberts
and Charles Mansford, two English box
ers, both known as hard hitters.
The Keserved Meats Not Occupied.
They went to Newmarket Wednesday,
but as news of the affair had leaked out
on the race course, the scene of the en
counter was changed from Abingdon's
house to the Greyhound hotel, where the
ring was pitched. Two rows of chairs
were reserved for the prince aud his
friends and the usual preparations made
to receive him. As the prince came along
the avenue be saw a large crowd waiting
to see him enter. He was annoyed be
cause the matter was made public and de
clined to go to the light. -
Tbe British and Behrlng Sea.
London, July 21. The British govern
ment Is preparing to lay before parlia
ment the correspondence in relation to
the Behring sea. The contention of tbe
government, briefly, is that the limit of
American jurisdiction extend only to the
three-mile limit from the shores of the
mainlaud and islands of Alaska. To this
position it is well understood that tbe
government will adhere, agreeing, how
ever, to a close season for seals during
ame months or tbe year, with freedom to
kill during July, Angust and September.
The Perfidious Turk Called Down.
Constantinople, July 21. Herr Ger-

captured near Ism id t by brigands and
held for a ransom of 917,600, have been re
leased. Their capture was made the sub
ject of an identical note addressed by tbe
ambassadors of Germany and Austria to
tbeAorte. The note declared that such
outrages were of too frequent occurrence
in -1 urktHQ territory.

EXCITEMENT AT A SUNDAY GAME.
Base Ball Grounds Invaded by Law and
Order People, i.TOio Are Outwitted.
Rochester, N. Y., July 21. There was
a scene of great excitement on the Windsor
Beach base ball grounds yesterday after
noon. At the closu of the third inning of
the Rochester Columbus game Justice
Coy, of Irondequoit, -with several consta
bles and members of the Law and Order
league, marched t n tbe diamond and or
dered that tbe ganie be stopped. As the
players came in th j spectators poured out
on the diamond from the stands and sur
rounded the Irondxquolt people, shouting
derisively at then, and calling on the
players to continue. The club officials
tried in vain to restore order, but were un
able to do so until they had persuaded the
Irondequoiters to leave the diamond.
They Had Mo Warrants.
As the latter had no warrants the play
ers resumed the game, after the -managers
bad promised Justice Coy to bring the
men before him. At the close of the game
the club baficials persuaded the Ironde
quoit men to secure the players' arrest im
mediately. This was done, and they were
taken before Justice Baird, who was on
band for just su h an emergency. Gen.
Brinker vouched far tbe appearance of the
players when wan' ed, and they were re
leased. This action was taken to forestall
the law and Order league.

Theories In Louisiana Competition to

Principle Somewhat Different from Bel
lamy's AU to Have Kqual Opportunity
and Each Be Bewarded According to
Deb Moines, la., Jnly 21. Edward Bel
lamy's dream begins to assume tangible
proportions to some of our citizens. Dur
ing last winter there waa an organization
known as the Investigating club at Uni
versity place. The body met once a week
and discussed the economic and social
topics of the day. Not a little interest
was manifested. Among those who par
ticipated in the meetings were some earn
est, thoughtful men who had become op
posed to our present competitive system of
industry. When the summer months be
gan the club closed its meeting, but tbe
investigation along this line of thought
was, if anything, pushed with more vigor.
At the Head of the Movement.
About a mouth ago a small circle of
men Krnest B. Gaston, of The Suburban
Advocate: C. 1L Mershon, E. D. Smith, W.
P. Macy, D. Harrod, and J. P. Mersditb,
with a few others met to see if they
:ould not devise a plan to escape what
they deemed the serious evils of the pres
ent system and put in successful operation
the principles which had crystallized in
their minds as the result of their investi
gations. The reslilc has been the organi
sation of a colony company with the ob
ject of founding in some favored part of
the country, probably near Lake Charles,
I -a., a community which shall be as far as
possible complete within itself, and
where what they term the savage, foolish,
and wasteful system of competitive indus
try shall give place to the kindly, ration
al and more economic system of co-opera
Principles of the Organisation.
The plan of the new colony is much
like that of the Kaweah Co-operative
Colony of Talare county, California.
Among the basic principles of the colony
are: "Man alone is nothing but a savage;
be can support existence, that is all. It is
only in and through society that he can
obtain wealth aud culture. Wealth is the
product of man's labor expended on the
earth, which is God's gift to the race. No
man should be allowed to monopolize
nature's resources and levy tribute on his
fellow-men for the opportunity to labor;
every man is entitled to just so much lib
erty as will allow equal liberty to every
other man; each man should receive the
full product of his labor; except an
amount sufficient to discharge his debt to
society, through which alone he can do
Where It Differs from Bellamy.
The persons who have inaugurated this
movement at I mversity place do not ex
actly indorse Bellamy's ideas. There is a
distinctive difference between them, in
that, iustead of Bellamy's principle of
"from each one according to bis ability, to
each one according to his need," their
principle is, "all will have equal oppor
tunity, and each will be rewarded accord
ing to his deeds " The projectors are very
enthusiastic and confident of their ability
to make the plan of work succeed. If
possible they will have everything in read-
ncss and start for their new home this
coming autumn. A committee will be
immediately appointed to look for a fa
vorable location. The establishment of
the colony is a settled fact, and speedy ar
rangements are being made for the con
summation of the plans.
THEY CARVED HIM EFFECTUALLY.
A Georgia leperado Takes Entirely too
Big a Contract.
Opklik A, Ala., July 21. Will Wallace,
the Georgia desperado, is probably dead
by this time, from wounds received Fri

estimated that over 5,000 persons were

The Minneapolis Journal printed tbe de

to have sixteen clubs and two circuits-

AN EXPERIMENT WITH THE CABLE
Which Might Have Provided a Coroner's
Subject, But Pldn't Pointed Illustra

Oood Ile Young A Small Hoy, a Rope,
and a Street Car Cable Provide a Thrill
Chicago, July 21. Little Henry Alten
berg, who dominates the youthful mind
of tbe West Madison street curbstones,
through scientific investigation pushed
too far caught a glimpse of the bright
radiance of the great hereafter yesterday
afternoon, and came quite near attaining
greatness as the firtst lad to be sacrificed
beneath the cruel wh eels of Mr. Verkes'
intermittent cable cars of juggernaut.
Since tbe west side cable system was
placed in occasional operation last week
the unskilled genius that runs riot n the
sunset side of the city has been puzzled to
fathom its rumbling subu-rraueati mys
teries. Preliminary Invest Igatlons.
To the small boy that sports ou Madison
street it has been a great mental problem.
He has devoted to it considerable thought,
and given it his undivided attention for
days, until he has obtained experimental
knowledge enough to enable him to send
abandoned tomato cans and other effete
bric-a-brac of the alley rattling merrily
down the west side vein of commerce and
into the very ventricles of the city's throb
bing heart. For days the lads have been
lined along the slit in the center of the
track, dangling into the darkness of the
noisy tunnel below bits of cord and twine
to which cans and sticks had been at
tached. In a moment the cable seizes
them, and they, sliding aud bumping, run
merrily off down-town.
Struck by an Inspiration.
But Henuie Altenberg is a lad with a
superior mind. Six years only have rolled
Into the past since he made his debut on
the stage of human action, llennie was
compelled to give up school sometime
ago, and since then has been the leader of
his "aet" in all sorts of mischief. Conse
quently when the cable started he led in
the investigations made, and saw new
fields of thought opening before bim.
Other boys might fasten cans to the speed
ing cable, but such divertise ment was too
tame for him. He lay on the tr.tc-k peer
ing down the slit watching the black
snaky object that rush led along below,
nntil a great inspiration glowed within
He Proceeds to Carry it Out.
Running np to bis mother's rooms at
803 West Madison street, he quietly and
without ostentation took the cord from
the family bed. Fastening it about his
middle, he tied to the other end a piece of
paper- Running down into the street, be
dangled the paper into the cable tunnel.
His scientific ideas had been well con
ceived. The currents of air that swished
down the dark pasHage whirled the paper
about until the rope wound round and
round the cable. Then his wild career
began. Men, women, children and the
West Kml gentlemen who wear silk hats
and sack coats simultaneously were soon
awe-stricken at the figure the boy was
"Identified" with the System.
Henry was identified with the cable sys
tem for a fact, lie had been a "fast" young
ster before, but he was faster now. He
pranced down the tracks like a yearling
colt around a blue grass pasture. His
soiled shirt fluttered in the breeze and his
hat flew off. Hut he didUit stop to pick it
up. He couldn't. He gripped the roje
that so closely identified him with the
cable system vand sped on and on. Then
he lifted up his voice, swelled his lusty
lungs and yelled wildly. People gener
ously shouted "Heyl" at him, and several
thoughtful ones axked him if it hurt
much, but he only galloiicd on. He was
devoting his whole thought tot lie scien
tific investigation he was coudiictiug at
such a rapitt gait and with such flattering
His Thrilling Kace Kmleil.
A big crowd collected when it was dis
covered what was the matter, aud soon
was in full hue and crv after the lioy. The
end came finally. A. E. Allen, an employe
at 77 Maiision street.,, rushed into the
street with a huge putty knife, the only
one available along llennie's entire right
of way, and, trottiugalong by the ttoy'sside
hacked the rope in twain, llennie fell ex
hausted in his arms, and the thrilling
scene was over. tVver.il hundred people,
more or less, according to varied accounts,
stood gaing at the boy who had made
such a sensation, and tenderly inquired if
he was hurt. Hut he disdainfully an
swered, -Naw !" Then a big blue-hacked
prefect of police put the boy under arrest.
He was released presently, and silently
stole away to his home.
A Private Matinee.
When bis mother heard of the wonder
ful feat he had accomplished she led him
gently away to led. Throwing the cover
lets back over the f;ot hoard to allow her
ample leeway, she raided the bed-cord with
which he had made the thrilling trip over
her bead and let it fly. For a moment it
soughed mournfully through the calm
atmosphere of the holy Sabbath afternoon.
Then no sound broke the stillness but the
howls of the boy w hose inqtiisitiveness
nearly led him to a tragic end. Had he
fallen down, or had he overtaken a car, be
would never have lieen the recipient of th
bitter chastisement that so ignominiously
came to mock him in his new-found glory.
