Springfield, June 22. Since the leg
islature has ceased its labors in this city
there has come upon the average politi
cian a peace that passeth all undemand
ing. I intended to have told you partio
ulars of the closing hours of the session;
how during the whole of the last day
nearly every member worked like the
proverbial hired man; bow the clerk
hurried through the reading of bills,
while the perspiration poured down his
face, and everybody walked about and
chatted away in an earnest manner like
the preparatory moments of a ward cau
cus. Nobody knew what the bill was
about when read at least, very few of
them did but what mattered that when
the b 11 was considered in committee? It
was amusing though to hear members
when their names were called to vote, ask
from their seats what the bill was ail
about, and some of them, it is suspected,
took a plunge in the dark and voied aye
or no, as the fancy of the moment dicta
ted. During the call of the absentees
afterward, nearly everybody, it seems,
wanted to change his vote when be found
out how the matter stood If the legis
lature bad worked one tenth as hard as
during the last few days it could have
adjaurned in 10 days after the election of
Geo. Palmer. The senate closed iu la
bors at 6 o'clock, but met again at S
but the house kept right on working dur
ing the whole afternoon and evening un
til nearly 9 o'clock, the final hour. It had
been arranged between Speaker Crafts
and Representative Merntt that the lat
ter should, upon the passage of the bill
a. lowing women to vote at school elec
tions, move to adjourn sine die. but he
seemed to have forgotten all about it,
and the speaker called Eddy, of Bloom
ington, to find out if Merriit was asleep,
and that if the latter did not act prompt
ly that Eddy should do so, and then
shout himself black in the face. But
Merrltt awoke to the Occasion acd when
the adjournment took place there was a
scene enacted similar to that when Gin.
Palmer was United States senator. Ev
ery aisle and passase was covered a foot
deep with printed matter, such as bills
and resolutions and newspapers and sim
ilar material. There w&9 indeed a sense
of relief pictured in the faces of all, and
as the members acd employes filed slow
iv out thev must have felt that many of
them had stood in the state house for tbe
last time in an efficial or representative
There has been much said, especially
durins the struggle for the election of
senator. about tbe willful extravagance of
the assembly, and more particularly the
house. But this ill-feeling came from
envious republicans who found themselves
in a minority and their schemes all
undone. Daily the shout went up that
Speaker Crafts wa9 saddling upon the
people a burden of $2 000 a day just as
if the previous legislature had been run
on a irifie. Tbe amount paid to the
members for per diem, mileage, postage.
etc., of the last general aserr b)y, and for

The session lasted IS? days and tbe
session preceding it lasted 140 days; the
Thirv sevecth general assembly costing
132,257 47 more than tbe Thirty sixth,
but it Usied 1? days longer, and. of
course, transacted a much larger amount
of business. The sums mentioned above
do not include the amount paid for
stationery, .riming paper, printing, bind
ing, ruling, lights, fuel, copying and dis
tribution of laws, the expense of which
is estimated at about $51) 000. But these
items cost the Tbirty-six'.h general as
sembly t-i? 000 a difference of only $3.-
0(0. And yet one would have thought to
read tbe republican papers a short time
ago that tbe state was about to be mort
gaged for the expense of a democratic
legislature. But these people should not
have begun to ho"wl until they got well
out of the woods. Now that tbe accounts
have been made up it is seen that tbe ex
penses for officers and employes of the
republican senate, having but one-third
of the membe ship of the democratic
house, were 75 per cent a9 much as that
of tbe house. Of course this fact will
not be dwelt upon to any extent by the
former howlers of extravagance.
There was an incident iu the house on
tbe last day that is perhaps worthy of
mention. Miller, of Cook, in the fore
noon offered a resolution as to tl.e uni
form courtesy and fairness of Speaker
Uraits curing tne session, lots was a
generous act.con.irje from tue republican
side, and Allen, of Vermil.ion. slipped in
to tbe speaker's chair and put the resolu
tion, which was carried unanimously, la
the afternoon Miller objected to the vot
ing ot . ratts upon tne passage ol some
bill and a heated session arose. It was in
yain that the speaker told Miller he ws
wrons. The clerk continued to read a
Miller continued to shout, "Mr. Speaker,"
and this proceeding was kept up until
Mr. Speaker had to call ibe door keepr
to have Mr. Miller removed. That stal
wart official walked down to ihe offend
icg member te do as he was told, but
friends crowdtd around Miller and got
bim to shut up and take his seat. Per
baps tbe gentleman from Cook would
have liked to withdrawn his resolution of
the morning, but perhaps also he c in
cluded mat tie was eimpiv raising a
spectacle of himself for nothing
My intention wag to baye summed up
the labors of the members from your dis
trict during tbe session, but 1 have con
cluded it was not necessary since you
have been kept posted during the session
Senator Crawford told me that he was
going into the hay field as soon as be
reached home, and I picture in my mind
bow be can, like Cincinnatus of old, leave
the affairs of state and return to tbe farm
la a little while duty will again call him
hither, when tbe plow will be dropped
t lence will redound to tue advance
ment of the a!firs of the people.
The Modero H oo lmen.
Maj. C. W. Dawes, bead clerk of tbe
M6dern Woodmen of America, has dis
tributed a number of copies of tbe organ
of the order among our cities, together
with an exhibit of the financial standing
of the order, etc , and a printed sta'ement
ia whxh he sajs:
It is with pleasure that I can confi
dently assure my friends and fellow citi
zens of Rock Island that the order M. W.
of A. is a "rock rooted" institution unex
celled by any fraternal benefit associa
tion ia the United States in the absolute
security and cheapness of the insurance
offered. Rock Island being peculiarly in
terested in the future of this
order, it is thought best at this
time to organize and institute an
other and the third camp within its
limits, whose membership shall include
only those who are liberal enough in their
views to judge an applicant for adoption
solely by his moral standing ia the com
munity and his physical ability to stand
the medical examination required of him
by the "fundamental laws" of the order
without regard to his political or relig
The major, who is also deputy head
consul of the order, will be ia Rock Isl
and July 7 15 to receive applications for
Mill at 1.
The Moline Dispatch of last evening
The sheriff had a bigger job on his
hands Saturday than he could finish and
is devoting today to serving the papers
left over. Notwithstanding the rumors
on the streets it is pretty certain that the
list published includes all the persons
against whom information has been filed
with but few exceptions- The rumors
that there would be a hundred more per
sons invited to give bonds on account of
gambling has no foundation
There is a rumor in tbe air that this is
not tbe end and that offenders against
other laws will be wanted by the sheriff
very soon. How nrjch ba9is there is for
the statements cannot be told cow, but
that there will be some revelations very
soon is quite sure.
To the Pab'.ic
The city council, having ordered to
place all electric lights where practicable
in the center of the streets, the citizens
are hereby notified and r quested to trim
the shade trees in front of their sidewalks
to a height of fi'teen feet wtere admissa
ble. to admit more light to &id sidewalk.
Tne city will haul away the rubbish when
notified. Robert Koehler,
