HOHBAY, FlBRUABY 6, 1893
Thb bill providing for the payment of
the newspapers of the state for the
publication of the Australian election
law, has passed both houses and been
signed by Got. Gill. For some unex
plained reason publishers hare been de
prived of their pay for this work, and
they will naturally thank the new demo
cratic legislature for thus promptly rec
tifying the neglect.
Ikdiakafolib Sentinel: One of the
highest tributes that could be paid to
any man is that paid by the silence of
the opposition press to the selection of
Mr. Carlisle as secretary of the treasury.
Not a voice has been raised to criticize
the selection or to question its peculiar
fitnei9. Mr. Carlisle has spent almost his
whole life in the full view of the public;
bis motive and his ability have been
closely scrutinised, and now that he is
named for one of the most important
posts of public trust there is no hostile
comment. The silence is indeed elo
MuscATihE NewsTribune: The one
Striking fault of our prohibition friends,
is, if they will permit us to reveal it to
them, that they make prohibition synon
ymous with temperance. Both prohibi
tion and license are only means to an
end and those whose experience and ob
servation have been jus as great, and
whose judgment is just as good, recog
nise the universal habit of stimulant,
and that a free people will not be denied
the gratification of this babit,and believe
the only practical attainment tf temper
ance to lie in a strict regulation of the
liquor traffic and the education of public
opinion by the necessities and behts'.s of
business and by press, pulpit, and all
other agencies known to temperance re
form. In Court.
The following letter, sent by Lieuten
ant Qovernor and Acting Governor Gill to
tbe attorney general of Illinois, brings
to a new and acute phase the gossip
which for some days past has invested the
office of tbe auditor of the state:
Etath of Ilmhois, Executive Of
ncB, tPRiNOF.BLD, III., Feb. 2. The
Hon. M. T. Moloney, Attorney General
Sir: I have tbe honor to acknowledge
the receipt of yourcomtsunication of this
dale staling that certain books, papers
and Teachers have been abstracted from
the office of the auditor of public ac
counts by ex-Auditor Charles W. Pavey.
The statement in your letter being veri
fied by a statement made this day by the
auditor of the public accounts, you are
hereby instructed to commenceaad pros
ecute suits against Charles W. Pavey or
h is bondsmen, or both, in accordance
with the provisions of section 5, chapter
IS, of laws of Illinois in relation to the
auditor of public accounts. Very re
spectfully, Josepb B. Gill,
Lieut, and Aet'g Gov.
Section 5, chapter 15, of tbe Revised
Statutes herein referred to, provides
The auditor of public accounts of this
atate shall, before entering upon tbe du
ties of his office, give bond, with two ar
more sufficient sureties to be approved
by the governor and two justices of the
supreme court, payable to the people of
the state of Illinois, in the sum of 50,
000, conditioned for the faithful dis
charge of his duties, and to deliver up
all papers, books, records and other
property appertaining to his office, whole,
safe amd undefaced, to his successor in
office, ara that he will give additional
bonds, with sufficient sureties, when le
gally required, which bond shall be filed
in the office of tbe secretary of state.
Whenever the condition of any bond
of tbe auditor is broken it shall be the
duty af the governor to order the same
to be prosecuted. Suit may be instituted
and prosecuted thereon to final judgment'
against tbe auditor or his sureties, or one
or more of them, j intly of sveraly,
without first establishing the liability of
the auditor by obtaining judgment
against him alone.
From which it would appear that the
attorney -general is not without warrant
in bringing Mr. Pavey before tbe bar of

LOVE AT THE "SHIP."
There had been a fog in the early
morning, but the sun, gathering
strength, burst suddenly from behind
a black and indigo cloud and streaked
the sea with a opperish hue. Far
down the beach ware two men and a
boat. They were stalwart men and
the eldest wa9 busy shaking from the
meshes of a draw-net entangled tufts
of maroon and bro.vn seaweed.
"Poor draughts, Shelah," said the
net-shaker, lookii g philosophically
into the basket that held the tish.
Poor enough, Master Reeks. Is it
"Ay, lad; home it is. Get in the
The young man jumped into the boat
and took the oars; the other shoved
off and when he wu9 knee deep in the
salt water clambered in after him.
"Shelah," said Reeks, speaking of a
sudden, "when are you going to marry
There came a little extra color into
Shelah's smooth tanned cheeks. "I
don't know, master," he said.
"Ah," said Reeks, with a sigh, "I
wish her mother was alive."
"Why, old Tom?" asked Shelah.
"Why? To steT her, lad. I'm
afeerd ray hand is h bit too heavy on
the tiller for a dainty craft like my
Jen. She wants a woman at her helium
or a husband."
"What makes yc u say that?" asked
Shelah, resting on his oars.
"I'll tell ye. lad." he said slowly;
"It's been on my mind a long time,
an' now I'll tell ye. I don't like the
eomin's an' goin'sof that young brewer
o' our'n. Mr. Cyril Juvmgton.

every day he's a-ri:iu' up to know if
we want anything done. Is the beer
all right? Are tliere any repairs
needed? An' all that. I shouldn't care
how many times he come, Shelah, if it
warn't fur Jen. I'm afeerd that his
fine boss an' his velvet coat an' his leg
gius an' his watch-chain may dazzle
her, lad. It's precious little company
we see at the 'Ship.' an' it may make
her dissati.sliud with the life she's
"Jen is all right," aid Shelah. firmly.
"So she is, my ltd; but she'd be a
lot better married. An' so, between
man an' man, lad, I wants to know
when you're goin' ti marry her?"
"I'd marry her to-morrow," said
Shelah, wistfully, "if she'd ha' me,
Reeks looked at him steadily for a
moment. "Shelah Baxter," he said
solemnly, "you put me in mind of that
song the Scotch packman was singin'
in the 'Ship' the tother night. You
sit on a stulc an1 look like a fule, with
your hold jaws newly shaven. You
hain't got the pluck of a mouse."
Shelah looked dreamily at the purple-feathered
arrow s and silver spear
tipped shafts of cloud over the sea,
but jjave no contradiction.
" r wimen, I mean," pursued
Reeks. "There ain't a man in the
whole village, that could put you on
your back. But wi' wimen!" He
snorted. "Why, ms.n alive, the bolder
you are wi' a womuD the better she
likes ye. See how they run arter a

you ha' got a boat of your own, and
what's to purvent you two a-settlin'
down together? I 'luck up, Shelah,
say I, anu ha' no nitre shilly-shallyin'.
"I'll think on it," said Shelah, slowly-
"Do," said Reeks, refilling his pipe.
"But to act on it wo ild be better."

upon the sea, and for a moment the
boat seemed to raise up and fly bodily

"No" said Reeks. Why?"
"Because, if you could, I wanted
you to read this." lie held out a sheet
of pink note-paper. It was soiled with
tish scales and tobacco dust, but. even
now retained a sweet and subtle per
fume. Reeks took it gingerly, held it three
different ways and narrowly scanned
it. "All I can make out, ladi" he said,
"is these here."
"What are they?" cried Shelah,
"Kisses!" said Reeks, solemnly, "ten
"Kisses!" repeated Shelah, vacantly.
In sudden fury he snatched the paper,
and. doubling it in n ball, threw it far
over the waves. O) posite the lookout
Shelah rowed ashore.
"Now," said Reeks, as he jumped
out, "I'll stjw awat, lad. Go you up
to the 'Ship.' It's a tout time you and
Jen came to an understands'. Pluck
up. Shetal. and remember there's
alius wars' an' mean) of winnin' a wo-
man." He wiriKecl and nodded.
Shelah drew his feet out of the wet
sand and with a sad smile moved up
the beach. As he strode between the
lifeboat and the yawl his face settled
into gloom. There was a big sandhill
on his left; he turned aside and
mounted it. "Ten kisses," he groaned,
and looked vacantly around him.
He slowly descended the mound and
walked toward the inn. The "Ship's"
sign could be seen long before the inn.
Within a few paces of the sign Shelah
halted. He could hear a horse's hoofs
pawing the ground. He was soon re
galed with alitlle whistling, then the
softly hummed verse of a song. Tbe
words came to his ears with aggravat

There next sounded some loud laugh
ter, a step on the tiled path of the inn,
then the singer spoke. "I drink thy
health, my charmer," he said, in the
Rivington brew." After that he spoke
lower, but the words reached Shelah's
ears. "You got my note, Jenny, b'ut
you never came. Why was that?"
"I was afraid! And oh, what would

musical voice ended suddenly.

reckless. And for you. my gypsy, I
would risk anything. Now tell me,
Jenny, when can you meet me alone?
It is a small favor for a lover to ask.
When shall it be?"
Jenny was silent.
"Jenny," said the rider seriously, "do
you love" me?"
Holding his breath, Shelah waited
for the answer. It was inaudible.
"Come a little closer, Jenny," said
the horseman gail-; "kisses on paper

It was Shelah. He rounded the
corner in time to see Mr. Cyril Riving
ton riding away.
With his head bowed Shelah crossed
the threshold of the inn door; he was
met inside by a pretty, brown-cheeked
girl, whose face had a heightened and
rather unusual bloom. At sight of
Shelah she looked disconcerted.
"Jen, lass," he said, "I want to
speak to vou; I want to ask you some
thin'." Jenny started, and there was a sens
ible diminution of the color in her
cheeks. "Not now, Shelah," she said
nervously. "I'm busy now. Wait till
father comes in,"
"No," said Shelah, "I can't wait. If
I don't speak now 1 shall never speak.
I shan't stop you long."
