SIZES IT UP.
A Peoria Journal Correspondent Has
HoaiethiBC to Nay About Politic
Last Friday' Peoria Journal contains
among other Milan correspondence, the
following political gossip:
Politicians have commenced their ax
grinding. The republicans, as usual,
were first in the field and as usual the
office-seekers and heelers, strikers, etc.,
captured everything. For state senator,
Crawford captured the prize, horrepre
sentalive they put up a postman who dil
ieently worked for prohibition and aup
ported St. John and the balance of the
ticket is made up of the same stripe. All
the republicans of a representative char
acter say "it looks very much as tboueb
we have got to take the dose." They
are like the Hindoo who approached his
hideous god. I know that he is mighty
ugly, but we feel that the heeler and
office-seeker Is great.
The congressional convention on the
221 was looked after with the same
results, the delegates calling them
selves patriots, civil service reform1
ere, silver advocates, and in thorough
harmony with Gest's administra
tion. This has to be swallowed by
the intelligent voters of the Eleventh
congressional district. Gest's patriots
returned from the convention at Bush
nell with great glee. Wells, the post
master at Rock Island, locked up his
civil service bos and was booming
Gest with the boys in a hercu
lean manner. However,, the intelli
gent voters are beginning to think sob
erly that such hilarious work cannot be
tolerated by such a machine in the fol
lowing manner: Howard Wells is trying
to run a Sunday school. Gest is trying to
run silver coin and the white bouse.
The democrats seem to have united, at
least they have so far used great wisdom
in the past deliberations in nominating
representative men of unexcelled business
qualifications in this locality. All the
prominent republicans actually concede
that the democratic ticket as far as
placed in the field, excels anything ever
placed before the people, and their wis
dom should continue at their congres
sional convention which takes place at
Monmouth August 5tb, to place a candis
date in the field that is thoroughly identi
tied with the interests of the district one
that doe not requite a standing delega
tion from the district to take care of the
necessary interests that is required for
the good of the people. In couclusion,
if the feeling of the people will prevail at
theconvention at Monmouth, the people
of the Eleventh congressional district
will mak a retKhot fight against Gest, to
make sure of the election of a representa
Tiie New York World sent a correspon
dent to this state to enquire into the Scul
ly land system. The correspondent vis
ited Grundy, Livingston, Logan and Sans
gamon counties. Scully owns about 72,
000 acres of land in Illinois, 16,000 being
in Livingston county and the balance in
the counties named. He owns more than
as much more in Nebraska and Kansas,
or a total of something in the neighbor
hood of 160,000 acres. According to the
World's report, this land la rented for
cash rent, and the owner does not make
any improvement whatever. It is esti
mated that from $200,000 to 300,000 per
year is taken from Illinois alone and sent
to the old countrv landlord.
Gen. Palme b is announced to address
an anti horse thief society meeting at
Edinburg the 2d of August. In noting
this meeting the St. Louis Republic says:
The democrats and the anti-horse thieves
are all for Palmer. If the republicans
and the horse thieves can beat him, tbey
will have to get up early and stay up
The republicans of the district are now
beginning to realize the stupendous blun
der they committed at Bushnell. The re
nomination of Gest was suicidal in itself,
but the adoption of a platform teeming
with inconsistencies and devoid of one
iota of merit, should be sufficient to place
the republicans in a decided minority.
Repobts from Washington are to the
effect that Congressman Gest spends bis
time In deep meditation. We opine he
is more anxious to hear from Monmouth
than be was from Bushnell.

Remarkable Presentiment He Knew

Blow on the Breast from an Unseen

Norwich, Conn., Jnly 29. Carl Rudolph
Hlldebrand,son of John Hildebrand.a Ger
man laborer of this city, went bathing
July 22 with other boys in Yantic cove,
opposite the "wash house," got beyond his
depth, and was drowned. The boys in
fright watched him struggling for 'a mo
ment, but could do nothing to aid him. So
they hurriedly dressed themselves, and
taking the drowning boy's clothing, ran
straight to Mrs. Hildebrand's house.
White with fear, they came into her pres
ence), and holding up the garments,
shouted: "Rodo is drowned!" The body
of Carl was recovered later in the day.
The drowning occurred at 3:30 p. nt.
The Father's Presentiment.
John Hildebrand works on the farm of
Jacob Gottschalk, and on July 23 went to
work in the field aa nsual, Gottschalk's
son working with him. In an hour or so
John suddenly quit work and said to
young Gottschalk: "I feel mighty funny;
I don't know what's the matter with rue.
I go to the house." The man was trem
bling as If in fear or with an ague attack,
yet he looked perfectly well. He went to
the house and said to Mrs. Gottschalk: "X

'You must be sick," said the woman
kindly. "The heat has affected you, per
haps, and you had better stay in the house
and lie down."
Sure There Was Something; Wrong.
uSo, no, no," positively declared Hilde
brand. "I am not sick. I feel all right;
only I feel funny. I never felt so before
in my life. I am well, though. But there's
something wrong. I'll go out to work
again." He went back to the field and re
sumed his labor, but at intervals he
stopped, leaned on his farm implement,
trembled and appeared to be in deep
thought. Twice or three times he spoke
to young Gottschalk. "1 can't see what
this means. It's a very funny feeling."
But in each instance he resolutely de
clared that he never felt in better health

trembled at times as if something myste

and so the day wore on, Hildebrand hav

and strange feeling, while his body was
cold and his limbs clammy in spite of the
intense heat; still he insisted that he was
not in the least ill.
What Struck the Man?
As 3 o'clock came Hildebrand's excite
ment visibly increased, and he shuddered.
But he worked. It was at just about half
past 8 o'clock that the stout laborer sud-
denly stopped again, this time as if he
had been smitten with & blow, and ha
shook like a poplar leaf in the wind. Then
he straightened himself, and, still shak
ing, hs called to his companion, who was
at his side in a moment. The man was
not dazed, but seemed to be in a singular
mood of exaltation. He was facing to the
north, toward Norwich, and gazing
searchingly into the air.
"Over yonder," he cried, pointing above
the green billows of forest verdure, misty
in the white glare of quivering heat.
"Strange!" Then in a moment he mut
tered, "Something came to me from over
yonder, over yonder, and it hit me here,"

ror several moments Hildebrand re
mained in his fixed posture, shivering:
then be suddenly recovered himself, and
after a few minutes resumed his work.
For the rest of the day he was more com
posed, and at sundown, the day's work
done, he started for the house with his
companion in about his nsual manner. In
the meantime Gottschalk, who had been
to Norwich, arrived at his home, and told
his wife that he had bad news for Hilde
brand. "Well, that is singular," inter
posed Mrs. Gottschalk; "he has been feel
ing strange all day said he felt funny.and
couldn't account for it," and then, with
out waiting to hear Gottschalk's tale of
bad news, she related all Hildebraud's
experience of the day. At the end of the
atory Gottschalk commentod: "Well, here
is the meaning nf it all his boy was
drowned at 3:30 tlus afternoon."
Had Anticipated Hie Affliction.
The sad news was communicated to Hil
debrand immediately, but the great abode
of the affliction had been felt in the after
noon, and the man evinced little surprise.
He put on his dress clothes at once and
started fleetly for Norwich afoot. steadfast

steamer Virginia were in collislo i last
night near Fort Carroll. Four people are
known to have been killed and abo it ev-

occurred, and immediately disappeared.
Capt. Bohannon's Statement.
Capt. Bohannon said that his boi.t the
Virginia struck the starboard t uarter
of the Louise about the after gangway.
The collision nearly turned tbe Virginia
around, so great was the force. "I here
was no great exoitemsnt aboard our boat.
W hen I left the Louise I saw no one in
the water. If any went overboai-d they
must be under the water, not on top.
hen the collision occurred - the people
on tbe Louise rushed to the side where
the Virginia struck. I do not vant to
cant any reflection on tbe captain of the
Louise, but I believe he was wrong.''

The captain of the Louise disclaims all
responsibility for the accident ard inti
mates that the blame is entirely with the
Bay line steamer. The Louise wax carry
ing 1,450 passengers and the scne on
iKwird was an awful one. It will not be

number of missing.
VOTING BY ELECTRICITY.
A Scheme That Ita Inventor Sajs Will
Save a Lot of Time.
Washington Cm, July 29. The house
committee on rules gave a hearing yester
day to John A. Enos, a Washington inventor,-
who wants to supply the house
with an electrical apparatus for re ording
the votes of members. Mr. Etios ex
plained his invention carefully to the
committee, claiming that by its uso a vote
of the house could be taken in flvu min
utes. He claimed that by the adoption
and use of this invention a great deal of
time might be saved that is now lost in
the slow and tedious operation of calling
Thirty Days or Roll-Calling.
Thus far during this session the roll has
been called 300 times, occupying half an
hour for each call, or thirty averaga work
ing legislative days of five hour each.
Five-sixths of this time or twenty-five
days, Mr. Enos claimed might hare been
saved had his invention been in u e. He
estimated the cost of putting l is sys
tem in operation in the house at about
toO.000, and asked for a small appropria
tion to construct a working moil el with
which to demonstrate the practical ntility
of the system. The committee has taken
the matter nnder consideration.

A Rattle Lasting from Dawn Till Dark
Incidents of the Conflict.
London, Jnly 29. A dispatch from
Buenos Ayres to The Times, dated Sun
day noon, says: "Fighting began at dawn
Saturday and continued until dark, when
both sides held their positions. The gov
ernment's police and cavalry suffered ter
ribly. During the night the city was as
quiet as the dead, but behind shutters the
cit irons were alert. The insurgents re
opened hostilities at dawn Sunday with a
heavy artillery fire upon the government
troops under Vice President Belleggrini."
Mowed Down by Their Friend.
A terribly tragic blunder occurred early
in the day, when a regiment, suddenly
deciding to join the insurgents, advanced
for that purpose toward the artillery.
Their signals were misunderstood and
they were literally mown down by a ter
rific fusillade within the narrow street.
The minister of war was wounded during
the fighting and the minister of finance
was made prisoner. Col. Marmendia,
Ma j. Campos and many other officers were
killed. The commander of the firemen
was shot by his own men. An armistice
was ordered at noon and an effort was
made to reach some agreement and stop

The British gunboats Beagle and Bram

barded tbe government house, and the
Panama shelled President Celman s resi
dence. The war-ships ceased the bom
bardment at 4 p. m., and a bulletin was
issued announcing that the revolution bad
triumphed, and that a provisional govern
ment was formed. At 9 o'clock Monday
morning Celman's troops occupied tbe
nouses around tbe plaza.
Foreign Naval Officers Will Protest.
The commanders of the war vessels of
other nationalities agreed, if the Argen
tine war-ships resumed firing, to jointly
protest against the action on the gronnd
that it is contrary to the rules of war to
bombard an open city without notice.
Fighting began again at 8 p. m. Presi
dent Celman proposed tenus, which were
rejected by the chiefs of the L7nion Civ
iea. The insurgent troops hailed this de
cision with vivas.

Loxkon, July 20. The stock exchange
opened yesterday with a serious decline in
Argentine securities, owing to the news of
revolution received late on Saturday.
English investors have almost a monopoly
of interest in the obligations of the Ar
gentine Confederat ion. Those obligations,
not including state debts, require the
transmission abroad by the Argentine na
tional government of about $16,000,000 in
gold yearly, of which about $6,000,000 is
for interest on loans and a little less than

A Revolt AgHinitt Honest Government.
Up to the period of the revolution there

The eiteut of political corruption which

a sound financial basis, but the outlook is
now decidedly gloomy for creditors. Aside

Frank Leslie: "Such hosts of abominable
and injurious falsehoods from America!
Have decided to sail for New York with
solicitor to enter actions. Cannot believe
that you have circulated these reports."
This he signed "Rene," and sighed heavily
as he gave the office boy 21 shillings to
pay for its transmission to America. Tbe
marquis said that the solicitor who would
accompany him to America was Charles
Kemble, of Rename & Co., in Conduit
Rene's Solicitor Talks.
De Lenville declined to make any state
ment with regard to Mrs. Leslie's mo
tives in denying that she bad ever been
engaged to marry him. ' I am bound by
the laws of chivalry," he said, "to preserve
silence." Charlee Kemble, De Leuville's
legal adviser, was less close mouthed.
shall accompany De Leuville to America,
he said, "and we shall vigorously prosecute
all those newspapers that have libeled
him. lhat Mrs. Leslie was ready and
anxious to marry him before she sailed for
America, on Saturday, July 12, can be
proved by documents in my possession.
Why she should deny that fact I do not
know," and he showed several letters
which, if genuine, certainly justified him
in his conclusion.
Those Letters That Did Come.
Registrar Heame says that Mrs. Ieslie
undoubtedly tried to have the marriage
performed before the legal hour iu the
morning and Lawyer Kemtile shows two
notes which he says were written to De
Lenville, In which she calls him "dear
and signs herself "Lovingly, Florence."
THE CHARMING WIDOW HERSELF.
She Tells a Reporter How Linguists Make
New York, July 29. Mrs. Leslie was
disinclined last night to make any posi
tive statement concerning her present re
lations with the marquis. She told the
story of her first engagement to the mar
quis. "Why," said Mrs. Ieslie with great
earnestness, "there could be no mis
taking his disinterestedness for me,
for when I was sick with the black
measles and was blind for three weeks
he nsed to sit in front of the door of my
room anxiously waiting to hear of me.
Finally, when I felt that I had a good
prospect of getting along and succeeding
in the task I had undertaken, and build
ing up the work done by my late husband,
I sent a cablegram to the marquis telling
him to come over here and that I won Id
nidn't Bore Her for a Moment.
"This was about five years ago, and he
immediately came to this country. He
remained here eleven months, and was
with me every evening during that time
except two, when he attended dinners
given in his honor by the Have
nieyers. He used to come here
at 11 o'clock Sunday mornings and
remain until 11 o'clock at night, and in all
that time he never bored me for one mo
ment. The marquis is a finely educated
man. He speaks five languages. Some
times we would spend the time in read
ing to each other in various languages,
aud then we would sit at a table and write
poetry in various languages."

Borne yean ago we were very much
subject to severe spells of cholera morbus;
and sow when we feel any of the symp
toms that usually preoeed that ailment,
such as sickness at tbe stomach, diar
rhea, etc.. we become scary. We have
found Chamberlain's Remedy the very
thing to straighten one out in such cases,
and always keep it about. It is some
what similar to the usual cholera cures,
but seems to contain ingredients that ren
der it more pleasant to take, and that do
their work more quickly. Sheriff. Dever
euz tells us that he is subject to cholera
morbus, and recently relt a spell coming
on. when be obtained a bottle of Cham
berlain's Colic. Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy and two doses made him all
right. We are not writing this for a pay
testimonial, but to let our readers know
what is a good thine to keep in tbe
house. Troy. (Kan.) Chief.
