Monmouth, 111., July 13,1830.
Old Senator Edmunds will hereafter
pose as Congressman Gest's Jonah.
The Union is becoming enterprising.
Its editor has gone to Bushnell to report
the congressional convention.
The Moline Dispatch refers to Ihe
Warsaw Bulletin's prediction in regard to
the probable result of the congressional
election in this district this fall, as a
"conservative estimate." When it is con
sidered that the Bulletin prophesies a
majority for Gest in this county of from
1.200 to 1,600. the Dispatch shows a de
cided predilection towards confirmed lu
nacy in calling it a "a conservative esti
mate." It is rather the wild ebullition of
an elastic imaginant.
A. Washington dispatch to the Chicago
JS'ews, and one siened by its correspond"
ent W. . Curtis who is a republican,
says: "The members of the senate are
receiving a great many letters of remon
strance, particularly from the commercial
and legal associations of the country,
gainst giving so much attention to polit
ical measures like the election bill when
there are other matters pending before
congress which to them appear of greater
importance to the people."
The nomination of W. F. Crawford
for state senator by the republicans las
week was a mistake, if we are to believe
what we read and bear of the man. The
republicans have the choice of who shall
be state senator, and in making their
choice they should take no man tMCtuae
ot a bargain unless he be fitted and
' well fitted too to fill the position with
honor to the party and his constituency.
Id opposing the nomination of Mr. Craw
ford in the recent convention we believe
that the opposition of the Henry county
delegates came from the conviction that
he was not the man for the position. He
tias opposition in Rock Island county
as well as in Henry, and honest opposU
tion. The mistake was due to too strict
observance of political agreement. It is
to be regretted that the Henry county
delegates lacked the necessary strength to
nominate a better qualified man for the
important position of state senator, but
the misstep was marie by the Rock Island
brethren. Orion Time.

Washington Citv, July 23. Hoar,
chairman ot the senate committee on re

ate yesterday the testimony which has
been taken by that committee. The testi
mony was not accompanied by a report.
It is understood that the committee will
make a report of it, conclusions at a

Interest as to the relations between the
United States and the dependencies of
Great Britain in North America.
Gen. Miles on Attack and Defence.
The first witness examined was Gen.
Nelson A. Miles, in command on the Pa
cific coast. Commenting upon the de
fenceless condition of the United States
upon our northwestern border, the gen
eral said: "I will state what is well
known in regard to Canada. I believe
that the railway system of British Colum
bia could be occupied by American troops
in ten days; in other words, the principal
part of British Columbia could be occu
pied by American troops not, however,
through. Victoria. That is on the island
of Vancouver, occupied by British forces,
a place where the British government has
expended millions in building dry docks,
navy yards, and made some surveys for
fortifications. They have there at this
time a fleet of warships under command
of a British admiral.
What the Brirlah Would Be Doing.
"I think it is fair to say, what every in
telligent man must know, that during
that ten days the British fleet could de
stroy every town and city ou Puget sound.
destroy our railway system there, and oc
cupy our outlets for that northwestern
country. They could also send ships up
the Columbia river and destroy the city of
Portland, and that railway system. There
is not a gun or an earthwork on Puget
sound, nor a single artillery soldier. There
are a few obsolete guns at the month of
the Columbia, at Fort Canby, but that is
not now occupied by troops. That is the
condition of affairs north of the harbor of
San Francisco." The general added that
the situation south of San Francisco was
The Seal a Nuisance, Alter All.
Some very curious information is given
as to the nature of the Alaska seal fish
eries. Most of the fishermen engaged in
the food fisheries on the North Atlantic
coast insist that the seals are very destruc
tive of food fish, and that it will be a
benefit to the country when they shall all
disappear. -One of the fishermen of the
Northwestern coast said that it requires
over 40,00(1,000 pounds of food fish per day
, to supply the seals, and that it mar be
come necessary'on that coast to get rid of
the seals in order to preserve the food fish
for mankind. Some of the fishermen pre
diet that, with the existing methods of
hunting the seals, there will not be any
seals in Benrings sea in live years' time.
An All-Embracing Inquiry.
There is hardly a limit to the subjects
considered by this committee. The re la
tions of American and Canadian railways,
effect of the Inter-state commerce law,
subsidies to Pacific ocean lines, the sal
mon industry, . the lumber question, re
ciprocity and annexation, free raw ma
terial, the Franco-Newfoundland em

presented by people who appeared before

THE TALL SYCAMORE.
He Gives the Senate m Few Opinions on
Washington City, July 22. Voorhees
began in the senate yesterday what will
probably be an interminable debate on
that everlastingly irrepressible issue, the
tariff. lie characterized the McKinley
bill, not as a protective bill, but as a pro
hibitive bill. Twelve out of the fourteen
schedules showed an increase in the duty,
and in one of the others, the sugar gnd
molasses schedule, the decrease was a
fraud and delusion, owing to the bounty
required. The bill developed a Chinese
wall of prohibition
Quotations from Witnesses.
He quoted freely from the importers
who appeared before the senate finance
committee, one of whom Mr. McKeever, of
New York said that the increase of duty
on certain fabric of cheap cloth was "to
make the poor consumer pay twice as
much for bis goods as the wealthy." An
other witness, the treasurer of the Arling
ton mills, manufacturers of cotton warps,
mohair and men's dress goods, said that
for the last twenty years the average divi
sion of dividends had been a little over 20
per cent., and that the profit of the last
year were three times as great as those of
the preceding year.
Took a Wnaek at Carnegie.
Voorhees spoke of the magnificent dia
mond presented by Andrew Carnegie to
Stanley's bride. The farmers of the
United States, he said, had paid for that
diamond 10,000 times over in the last
twenty years by paying an average duty
of over 88 per cent, on every artiole of
iron and steel that they used, and by pay
ing increased rates of railroad freight
made necessary by the high duties on
steel and iron rails and rolling stock. For
the farmer, at last, paid for all. If the
pending bill become law they would have
an increase of duty to pay on iron and
Tin Plate and Sugar.
He attacked the duty on tin plate, and
said it had the first right to be on the free
list, and then, turning his attention to
sugar, he figured that If the bounty had
the effect of enabling home producers to
raise all that was needed f or home con
sumption it would be at the cost of an an
nual tax of 101,000,000.

ty Gould's Opinion of the Fire la the
Western I nlon Building.
New Yoky, July 22. For the first time
since the fire of Friday Jay Gould was
yesterday morning at bis offices ou the
third floor of the Western Union build
ing. "No," said bnto a United Press re
porter, "I was nit connected with the
company when tLi building was erected,
but I believe it wm understood to be as
nearly l.re-proof as it was possible to
make it. Thefloois, walls and stairways
are all indestructible. It must
be said, however, i t view of the probable
origin of the fire, that had it broken out
at any other time it would almost certain
ly have been extinsuished at once.
The Fire's Beat Opportunity.
"The men usually on hand at the point
where the fire bgan Friday morniug
were not there at that time to check the
spread of the flames, which were not dis
covered until they had made some head
way. Thus, iustead of saying
that at any other hour the fire would
have probably caused great loss of life, it
is doubtless proper to say that at any
other hour the Western Union buildiug
would not have bet n destroyed.
Will Make I; Safe Next Time.
"As to the means of egress," continued
Mr. Gould, "we believed that they were
sufficient for any demand that was likely
to be made upon them. It is possible,
however, that loss of life might have re
sulted from a panic in a crowded build
ing. We fortuuatoly escaped that, and
now nothing will be omitted in the new
arrangements which are to be made here
that can possibly arfd to the safety of the

BEEN LOOKING FOR TROUBLE.
A Ouatemalau Scheme That San Salvador
The Herald's Washington correspondent
says: 1 he intelligence tlrat a battle has
taken place between the forces of Guate
mala and those of San Salvador will
create no surprise here, where the news of
the outbreak of hostilities has been daily
expected. For some time past it has been
known that a large military force has
been mobilized by Guatemala along the
frontier of Ntn Salvador ready to strike a
blow at the proper moment. At the
same time Gen. Ezeta, the pro
visional president of Salvador, know
ing that Guatemala would be
sure to interfere in the politics of San Sal
vador, as has been her wont for many
years, has been making his preparations
fo meet force with force, aud has been dis
tributing arms among his people to en
able them to meet the anticipated attack.
Shortly before his death President Menen-
dez laid in quite a supply of rifles, which
he imiorted from England. Large orders
have since been placed by General Ezeta
in San Francisco and elsewhere fojr am
munition. Wants a Hand In Salvador' Politic.
While Guatemala has never attempted
to subjugate or aunex San Salvador, she
has generally contrived to control the pol
itics of her neighbor by having one of her
tools at the head of affairs in that coun
try. Such was Geo. Menendes, and now it
is a conceded fact that Gen. Alvarez is the
man Guatemala wants to see president of
San Salvador, lecause with him at the helm
Guatemala would be able to carry out her
cherished plan of uniting the five Central
American republics into one federal union.
To accomplish this has been the aim of
Guatemalan rulers for years, and it was
in the execution of this scheme that Geu.
Barrios lost his life. There is great oppo
sition among the people of San Salvador
to the scheme of a federal union, because
they fear the overwhelming influence
which Guatemala would have in the coun
cils of such a union, owing to her greater
population and wealth.

gave extreme beat and extreme cold, the
results of which were disastrous to the
public health. Oases of colic, cholera
morbus and diarrhoea were abundant snd
there were numerous calls at the drug
stores for Chamberlain's Colic, Coalers
