KnperviRor tVilnon'a Letter.
Pkoria, Jm 14. The banquet which
followed the second day's session of the
State Supervisors and County Commis
sioners rdbusI convention was held at
Rouse's hall. Invitations had been issued
to prominent citizens and covers were
laid for 300. There were nine long ta
bles very prettily decorated with palms
and potted plants. The linen was immic
c late and the china and silver service
new. A most elaborate bill cf fare wss
B-rved by Caterer J-bn Ki l!ev, followed
bv music and speeches. Addison Billard,
of Cook countv. addressed the bitj audi
ence on the suKject of Coun'r Rdv'
He said that during this convention a
great ninny ppeeches bad been made by
democrats, and he wanted to know what
chance aQ raker and ft republican stof d
He had visited the porr farm and on the
train there was a carload of Peoria's prin
cipal product. On the return a straw
vote had been taken and it was over
whe.'minely democratic. One of his best
and dearest neighbors is a democrat.
The speaker finally got down to his
8!it j-ct, aDd spoke of eounirv roaiis. He
s in he had once traveled on a coun'ry
road two dsvs and two nights and re
mained both nibls at the time tavern
The speaker is a prototype in appear
ance and speech of the lute E M II lines,
and his witty remarks called forth contin
uous rounds of applause.
After thi3 speech the band pliyed the
tenth Kegiment quickstep
The chxirmati baH an assault had been
made on Peoria's chief product and it re
quired sf me defense, and he would chIi
on John Downs, the poet laureit of the
Peoria board, to make the defense. Mr.
Dowds arose and offered an apology for
the unavoidable absence of Jud"e Worth
ington. Many gentlemen had remained
over tober Judite Worlnington wbo wis
a scholarly gentleman, possessed of
matchless eloquence. In reply to Mr.
Btllard's remarks regarding Ptoria pro
duct, he took a sho-. atCh'cago scxerace.
Speaking of county rtHrtrs Mr. Ponrs
Slid tliey were unmentionable one pi
cuiiarity about Peoria county official
was the fact that the office sought 'he
man. In this respect we are different
from McL?an county, where every tnnn
who is tl'tible is a candrdtte for some
oni. In Pet ria county a man goes to
Irs friends and says the office is peeking

The convention was to be called to
order at 9 this morning, but from son.e
cause unknown, unless it was on account
of the lateness of the hour ttiat the ban
quet closed, the hammer did not fall un
til 10. It ports of the several committees
were handed in and nearly all adnr.ted
One that was championed by a farmer
reiatmg to exempting farm and real estate
mortgages was referred to the committee
on resolutions of the next convention,
who are to procure some able speakers to
difcuss the question before that convene
lion. One resolution requiring the
state's attorney to make an annual report
to the county b ard was pretty thor
oughly di-cussed and finally adopted.
Ttic resolution making it obligatory on
ths board to liava the reports of the over
seers of poor published with tho proceed
ings met live ly o! jeelions, but was jihSrtd
by a small majority .
The Comrr.i tee on location reported in
favor of holdir.g the next meeting at
Champaiirn. An amendment whs mule in
fvor of Aurora, but Champaign came
out on top, as was the case at the ban
quet last night.
After adoptng the usual resolutions of
thanks to the citizens of Peoria, the
county board of Peoria county, the oil!

journed to meet at Champaign the first
Tuesdiy in .Innuary, 1S93.

The famous mind reading phenomenon
Paul Alexander Johnstone, gives the first
of two entertainments at Harper's theatre
this evening. The Moline papers speak
with much enthusiasm and praise over
the feats performed by Johnstone in that
city the last two evenings. O' the com
mittee invited on the stage to conduct
Johnstone's experiments all agreed tbut
bis gift was a supernatural power cf
mind, except Supt. of Schools Hatch,
who held to the theory thai tbe acts per
formed by J.ihpstone could be scoouated
for by muscle reading instead of mind
reading. Mr. Johnstone will epen his
engaffement with & htlf-hour talk on the
mind of man, and give all necessary in
formation on how to develop this straa:re
power, when of crurse the gift exists in
HermaLn, the most wonderful magi
cian, and one cf the cleverest pubiic en
tertainers of moiiern times, aided by
Mme. Hermann, will appear at the Burtis
at Davenport tomorrow nisht. After so
much drama, farce, comedy and nonsenre,
Hermann and his marvelous performance
will be thrice welcome. Hermann is a
great master of the "Black Art," a veri
table prince of darkness, if he will allow
the libel; but he works his t pells with
such finish, and ease, and grace, that one
sits quite content to be so deliciously
humbugged. He is the foremost of pres
tidigitateurs, a tnest gentlemanly necro
mancer; and although Dinte would have
condemned him to eternal punUbment.as
he does all magicians, the theatre goers
hope that Hermann will live long to daz
zle with his wonders. He announces
ttiis season a most remarkable entertainment.
He will present "S'robeika," his latest
and ereatest New York success. 'New
Black Art," with ihe bewildering oriental
fakir, Abdul Ktian. "A Siave Girl's
Dream," "Florine, Child of the Air." ard
many other new and startling seun itious.
In addition to these. Professor Herrmann
will perfo rm many tta6 ot sitignt-of-
haod and palming, in which he stand4
positively wituout an tqual.
Oa next Wednesday evening at Har
per's theatre will be presented the start
ling dram of our modern times, "Tne
Vendetta," of which the Rchmocd
The attrctin at the theatre last night
was "The Vendetta," a melodrama, wi'h
W. A. Whitecarin the leading role. The
play is rather strorger thun plays of its
ciass usually are. The action is spirited,
and the climaxes are dramatic. Tne
c'imiX of the 'It rd act is exceedingly fot
ciile, an t is particularly worthy of com
mendation, because it d es not depend
upon stagu a'twssori-'s fr suoeesu Tt e
performance r,f list ni;ht was admirable.
The scenery wis wi-il handled and the
lights werj miiiiaed in b way that
heightened and iu'ensifled the s'age e--fects.
The shipwreck scene attbeo.loe
of the fourth act was one of the mnt
realise t-tatre picures ever seen in a
Richmond playhouse, and was really a
moit excellent mechanical effect."
The Shortest Line.
One of the Reneral passengtr agents of
this city said: "One day I received a type
written letter on a beautiful lithographed
letter head, asking for passes for the offi
cials of the 'Cleveland and Anthem Rail
way company.' I knew nothing of the
railway, but the lithographed stationery
informed all to whom it minht come that
the 'Cleveland arid Southern railway' was
'the shorte-t line between Chicago and
New York.' I immediately forwarded the
usnal courtesies, and a few weeks later, as
I chanced to be in Cleveland, I made in
quiry concerning the new corporation. I
learned that, 'theshortest line between Chi
cago and Xew York' is juFt fonr miles
long, and th;tt it runs from Chagrin Fails,
O., to Solon, O. There can be little doubt
that the road is ail that is claimed for it on
the stationery of the officials." Chicago
The settling of southern California sti!
continues to be rapid. A part called An.e
lope valley, which wa- considered to be

schools with nn average of 210 pupils.
"Avoid that wljieli you would blame
others for :..'mg,'' savs one of our wise
men. Well, things have come to a preUy
pass if a man can't kiss his own wife.
