The boundary lines of the new No. 2
district were fixed at from Tenth to Sev

It was ordered that pupils failing of
promotion at the end of last year take
their reexaminations. i( they desire such,
at their respective buildings instead of at
the office of tbe superintendent as here
tofore, and it was decided that children
entering the primary grades simply report

requiring assignment to rooms are to call

the forenoons this week and next.

A MISERABLE INSULT.
Tne "Unlsu's" Falsity About Mr. Ca
ble an the Swedish, Veiman sad
Irish Citizen and the Laboring
The Union of this morning attempts to
insult JMr. Ben T. Cable by belittling
what has been done by the Cable family
for the advancement of Augustana col
lege and theological seminary, and it di
rectly insults every Swedish American
citizen, whether he is interested in the
college or not. Tbe Union as usual sac
rifices discretion for a sarcastic aim when
it says that Mr. Cable "has been advised,
as a means of influencing the voles of
Swedish American citizens to donate the
expense of sinking an artesian well at
Augustana college and that be proposes
to do it." The Swedish people are thus
put down In the Union's estimation as a
class of people who are "willing to sell
their elective franchise for the advance
ment of institutions such as are of inter
est to them. Not only is this accu
sation branded by Swedish citizens re
publicans, too as a bare-faced, lie, but
no more so than the intimation that any
dicker has ' been made with Mr.
Cable for votes. The Union's scur
rilous attack, both upon Mr. Ca
ble and the Swedish citizens, has
created a great deal of feeling at Augus
tana college already, and Manager Jes-
person called at the Argus office this
morning to state that the artesian well on
tbe college grounds was determined upon
sometime ago (as the Argus stated at
the time, and also spoke of Prof. South
well having been engaged hy the college
faculty to make a scientific investigation
of the lay of the' land.) and that Editor
E. Enander.of the Chicago HemUndet.
the new member of -the faculty, had un
dertaken the task of securing through
bis paper by popular subscription, funds
sufficient to bear the expense of
boring the artesian well, and
that Mr. Cable bad not even been ap
proached on the subject.' Tbe managers
of the college hope further that the pub
ic will give them credit for having more
sense of gratitude and good judgment
than to have asked further subscriptions
now of a family which has done so much
for the institution.
Thus are the Union's insulting, libelous
accusations nailed as miserably false. Tbe
further inference which the morning
paper makes that German-Americans,
Irish-Americans and the laboring classes
and all susceptible to bribery, and that
Mr. Cable is capable of making votes
among them by aiding causes in which
they are respectively interested, is as
much insulting in its chsracter as its re
mark concerning our Swedish citizens,
and will be received with no better grace.
The Further Ornaments to Arrive To.

joice to know of Miss Bowman's depart
ure, and one only, so far as the Argus
knows, and that is Supt Southwell, who
never hears the name that ha does not
shudder, for Miss Bowman led tbe inde
pendent movement in the republican
ranks against Mr. Southwell s renomiaa

WILL HE VETO IT?
Friends oftheKlver and Harbor Bill
Fear a Negative by the President.
There is great anxiety among tbe
friends of tbe river and harbor bill as to
its disposition when it reaches the White
House. Mr. Harrison a few days ago said
to a republican senator that he hoped the
bill would come to him with the Henne
pin canal project stricken out, and inti
mated that it would be wise for the friends
of tbe measure to see to it tbat this was
done. While the appropriation con
tained in this item ia only $500,000, it
obliges tbe government to an expendi
ture of over $6,000,000 to complete the
project. It is to this, it is said, that the
president objects. Tbe advocates of tbe
canal, and they are numerous in both tbe
bouse and senate, insist tbat the bill shall
not come out of tbe conference committee
if the canal project is rejected. Chicago
