BusHSELL, Aug. 16. -Jpecil.
This was a busy Oay at Bushnell. The
fair opened here todav, which attracted
a large number of people, the prohibi
tion congressional convention was held
here also, and tonight the delegates to
tomorrow's convention began to come in,
so that the town is crowded with people
and it is hard to secure accommodations
of any kind. The Rock Island delegv
tion was the first to arrive and no others
are expected in tonight, as the morning
trains will bring them all in. A few
scattering delegates from other coun
ties are here, but none to speak
of. The Rock Island delegation
after arriving made a pretense of holding
a meeting, but only a few got together
and it resulted in nothing. The fact is,
it doesn't know what way to turn to
make a showing and it isn't making any
bones about it. William Jackson, one
of the most conspicuous of the delegates
was conspicuous for his absence, for rea
sons best known to himself. Ia his place
and by his grace came one M. E. Swees
cey, who persuaded Mr. Jackson to let
him Lave his proxy. Sweeney is known
to be willing to accept anything politi
cally, from a red hot stove to a dead
Gest came down with the delegation
and is hobnobbing around as usual, but.
unless all signs fail, he will be decidedly
out of it. Marsh is the man that, every
one has down as the mark that will be
put up, and he is right here on the
ground 6eeing to it himself McLean
has not jet arrived, and it is thought by
some in a position to know, that
be may yet make i. interesting for the
Colonel. At any rate Mr. Gest at this
moment is not considered in the race,
and there is a bare possibility that his
name will not be presented to the con
vention, though things may change by
the time the conven'ion is called -
The prohibition convention today nam
inated Rev. W. P. White, of Little
York, as a candidate for congress, and
T. J. McMahon, of Hancock county, for
member of the state board of equaliza
tion. Mr. Wells was taken sick on the
train, and . is confined to his room here
with a lung trouble, but his physician
thinks he will be able to be about again
Gest had his satchel stolen alter he ar
rived here tonight, and fears it is a bad
omen. It is said it contained his letter of
acceptance, and that Marsh now has it.
Someone was cruel enough to anxiously
inquire of Gest if he had really lost his

THE CONTENTION CALLED TO ORDER.
BcsnsELL, Aug. 17. Special. The
republican congressional convention of the
Eleventh district was called to order short
ly aft r 11 o'clock by Postmaster Howard
Wells, of Rock Island, to whom had been
delegated the delicate duty by Chairman
Joseph L. Haas, of the congressional
committee, and Wells, realizing the grav
ity of the situation, rose from a sick bed
to perform the duty. W. C. Galloway,
of Alt do, was chosen as temporary chair
man, and Phil Dallam, of Warsaw, was
made temporary secretary. Committees
on credentials, resolutions and perma
nent organization were appointed, after
which the convention adjourned until 1
The Gest men held a meeting this
morning, and decided that M. M. Stur
geon should present Gest's name to the
convention, and test his strength, which
if not satisfactory, to withdraw it. Mc
Lean's name will be presented by H. C.
Agnew, of Macomb. It has not yet been
decided who will present Marsh's name.
Bushnell, Aug. 17. Special.
The convention reassembled at
1:10 o'clock. On motion the
temporary organization was made
permanent, and Howard Wells, of Rock
Island, and T. P. Sheldon, of Warren,
were chosen as assistant secretaries. The
committee on resolutions reported, after
which Charles DeHarie. of Carthage,
presented the name of Col. B. F. Marsh
for the nomination lor con
gressman, lhis was seconueu
by J. A. Porter of Warren. H.. C. Ag
new of Macomb presented the name of
Alexander McLean, and M. M Sturgeon
of Rock Island placed Gest's name

In our own civil war it is doubtful if
the gold of New York and London did
not work us greater -.ojury than the pow
der and lead and iron of the rebels. It
was the most invincible enemy of the
public creuit. Gold paid no soldier, or
sailor. It refused the national obliga
tions. It was worth the most when our
fortunes were the lowest. Every defeat
gave it increased value, and served to en
rich the gold barons.
Blackberries are now ripe and very
scarce, consequently everybody wants to
get some. The owners of patches them
selves, whodont allow others to pick
their berries, on going to pick at early
dawn are frequently just in time to find
them all gathered, and the parties leavs
ing on the other side of the pasture.
Certain young men picked an old ladj's
berries and then sold them to a peddler,
the peddler in turn offering them for sale
to the original owner.
On Friday evening last there was a
lawn sociable at the residence of Mr. and
Mrs. S. S Beal. Lemonade, ice cream
and cake were served. Over 40 were
present, and a grand time was reported.
In order to raise money for the church,
the minister or any other good purpose,
a Jvery unique feature was introduced.
Young ladies were masked and sold at
auction Joshua Dilion bought in his own
daughter which caused much merriment.
Forty cen'8 was bid for the last young
lady placed upon the auction block, by
her gentleman attend- nt, and on being
appealed to for a higher bid, shook his
head and said that was all he could
Hand. She was bought by the auction
eer for 43 cents.
It it somewhat amusing to fee to what
e :tr.meties leading protectionists are
driven in being compelled to talk on both
sides of the tariff question. In one
breath they tell us, as did President liar
tison, that articles can become too cheap,
and that "a cheap coat makes
a clea rran," and in the
next breath they give us a list of ov. r
200 articles that are cheaper since the
McKinley tariff bill came in force. One
day tbev tell us that tin cannot be manu
factured in this country without a
protective tariff. The next day they
tell us that articles made 'of American
tin can be bought just as .cheap today as
they ever could and that the duty placed
upon foreign tin has not affected the
price of American tin in the least.
We would like to ak President Harrison,
Blaine or McKinley a few questions.
Does this protection increase the cost of
the protected tin? If it does, who pajs
this increased cost? If it don't how d?es
it protect or enable the American manu
facturer to pay larger wages than the
English manufacturers pay? Then some
republicans seem to be trying to make
much of the report of the senate finance
committee as to the effect of the tariff on
prices. Taking 215 representative arti
cles as a basis, it showed a reduction in
the cost of living of 8J per cent rlurintr
the first 18 months under the McKinley
law, and an increase of IS per cent in
the cost of agricultural products. Now
then, we again would like to ask. in view
of the fact that farm products form a
considerable part of the cost
of living, how did it happen that
an increase of IS per cent
in the cost of farm produce was attended
by a decrease of 3 per cent in the cost
Next, did protection cause the decrease
of 8 per cent in the price of the 215 arti
cles? If so, how did protection protect?
Did protection cause the increase of IS
per cent in the price of farm produce?
The McKinley bill increased the tariff on
some articles and placed others on the
free list. To point to the reduction of
price in articles the bill put n the free
list as an evidence of the benefit of pro
tection is simply a fraud ard a presump
tion upon the people's ignorance.

Av 2 o'clock this morning Officer Carl,
son, while walking through Spencer
Square, detected a reflection of a fire east
of Twentieth street on Third avenue.
Hastening in that direction he discov
ered a pile of dry goods boxes east of
Hartz & Babnsen's, on Third avenue, to
be ablaze and. notwithstanding that the
fire was burning briskly, he seized bold
of them and succeeded in rolline them
into the street and the flames were thus
soon subdued. The boxes were covered
with oil, which made the fire bum all the
more fiercely, and the officer's hands
were blistered somewhat by the opera
tion. The effair has all the appearance
of incendiarism, although the fire may
have started from combustion, or from, a
carelessly thrown match or cigsr stump.

summit. From Manitou to the top of
the Peak, a distance of nine miles, trains
guaranteed to accommodate 330 Knights
a day, but are carrying 500. Tue fare
up and back is $3.75, but Mr. Buford
says that tourists were offering $ 50 a
ticket, and that 1,000 a day were on the
ground anxious for the trip, that many
slept on the ground all night in order to
hold their places in line for an opportu
nity to go up.
