Tn Union of coarse takes kindly to
the Apportionment scheme proposed
which places Rock Island county in s
hopelessly republican district. It raises
objection to the district proposed by the
Alters last evening, bectnse it contains
Adams county, and "gravely" expUins
that such a plan would be "delivering us
hand and foot over to the politicians of
Qaiocy," and asserts further: "A
district in which Rock Island is
the all-important town will suit our
citiiens much the best, regardless
of political cinditiors. We want a
congressman who can and will work for
Rock Island and Molme." This assump
tion cn the part of the Union is highly
amusing, in view of the fact that the re
publican party hits furnished us eo many
congressmen from the district "who can
And will work f ir Rock Itland and Mo
line," but while we are on the rutij-'ct.
what does the Union and its republican
following propose to f"o with one Gen. P.
S. Pos', of Knox county, in the event of
Rock Island being placed in the dUtrict
to which the morning paper apparency
takes so kindly?
8ME WAS FROM CHICAGO.
Chleage mod the Congressional Apportion
ment. The following from the Chicago Post
shows the disposition evinced
by Chicago toward the remain
der of the state in the matter of the con
gressional apportionment. It voices the
sentiment expressed by the other papers
of the metropolis of the state;
Chicago, which contains two-fifths of
the population of Illinois, furnishes four
fi'ths of the life of tbe state and does
four-fifths of its business. Io tbe eyes
of (he outside world Illinois is Chicago.
The state is known cbitfly by the city,
whose fame is as wide es the world.
Tbe northern and north-central coun
ties of tbe state fere thoroughly in toucb
with Chicago, breathe its spirit, glory in
its strength, partake in its activity. In
the pocket at the south are severnl tiers
cf counties of different stamp ard feel
in?. Politically belonging to Illinois,
they have nothing else in common with
the state. They are peopltd uj moss
backs from Ttnr.esfee, Kentucky and
Missouri and have kept all their an
cestral mossbsck idjs intact. They are
reactionaries, the back numbers. Their
sympathies are with St. Louis and Bld
By an unhappy combination of circum
stances it rests largely with these Bald
Enobbers to determine the ratio of this
county's representation in congress for
the next 10 Jyears. Their interest and
their inclination alike lead them to sacri
fice Chicago. Shall they be permitted to
do so? Shall Illinois eo to Washington
as A Chicago state or as a Bald Knob
stat? Tbe question must be settled now
If Chicago and the Chicago end of Illi
nois s'ick fast together, a calamity will
be averted- Otherwise this city will not
be saved from insult and this stale from
A Party's Pitiable Plight.
What a pitiful plight the republican
part? is in. to be sure. Host of tbe lead
ers are wholly at sea as to policy.and are
willing to let the party drift along as
merely an organized opposition mnch as
the democratic party did from 1864 to
1870. Oa the other hand, a few leaders
realise the necessity for an issue, and are
vainly seeking to sscare one . Among the
latter class is Oen. Clarkson, for whom.it
ia said, a presidential boom is already be
ing nursed. The tone of Clarkson's letter
on the nomination of Judge Jackson to the
U. 8. supreme court would indicate that
he favors a return to the "bloody shin'
issue. A number of influcnti.l republi
can papers Including the Indianapol s
Journal, have also taken up the old war
cry. Evidently tbe origina'ors of this
movement count on tbe certain revision
of tbe rension lists to give them back
mg. They propose to again appeal to
the "soldier element" in hope of success,
But we helicvo tbpy are masing a mis
take. Tbe civil war is too dead an is
sue to revive; tbe "soldier eltnent
not going to become very 1 a lly excited
because tbe bounty jumpers and desert
ers are dropped from the pension Tolls.
The republican party must undergo a
new bir'h before it can again assume
power; it mi'st adopt an economic issue
and drop the war issues on which alone
it ever won victories. Too many men
have been born since tbe war for a war
issue to again triumph.
Boa) at Western Toons; Woman Astonished
the Passen f ers In One Car.
Thire are some things that Astound And
startle a New Yorker. One of these is the
exhibition on the part of anybody of any
degree of Affection for Chicago.
A day or two ago I met a handsome young
married lady on th Sixth avenue elevated.
She had always livid in the west, where I
had known her sev rl years ago, and we
naturally discussed her recent change of
base. She sat in ot e of the cross seats in
the middle of the o ur, and I stood with oth
ers in the aisle.
"I like Chicago tauch better than New
York," she began.
The two men renting stock reports in the
eat facing her glanced at her sharply over
their glasses. The old man next to her
hitched np his coat nervously and looked
sorry for her.
"It may be that Now York will Improve
on acquaintance." she went on mischie
vously, seeing the sensation she made. I've
only been here two inontha, and if it wasn't
for my husband's business I'd go right
back to Chicago. I t's awfully alow here!"
I considerately in' imated that she'd find
things fast enough in Xew York when she
got acquainted th tt the complaint was
not a general one t iat, in short, New York
was a real nice sort of a town when you got
used to it.
"But I like western people best," she
said. The old man next to her looked out
of the window and groaned audibly, while
the other people aj parently regarded her
in the light of a curiosity. "Western peo
ple," she continued, "are not so formal and
mean what they say and don't say much."
I thought the old miin had been taken with
cramps he looked so miserable.
"Chicago is the city for shopping. I
can't find anything here, and I go miles
and miles! They hitve such lovely stores
in Chicago! This it such a dirty place,"
said she, shaking cut her sealskin sack.
Theold man could 1't stand it an? lonccr.
He got right up, and after looking at me as

There were gongs fxini ten inches to six

On a sigual from ;he prince the concert

Mr. Ernest Hart, v ho had an intimate
acquaintance with tie late Sir Richard
Owen, speaks of him as an interesting so

Sir Richard loved a st ory and a gentle joke,
but reproved vulgar humor with stern se
verity. On the day Mr. Hart introduced
his wife to Sir Richa-d they were walking
around the garden, looking at the scien
tist's favorite trees.
Noticing that some were netted and some
not Mrs. Hart remarked on this, and Sir
Richard answered.wit h that beaming smile

i A SOLDIER'S SUFFERING.
A Thrilling; Story of the War, from the
Pen of a Veteran.
I was in the disastrous skirmish known as
the Town Creek expedition, under General
G. M. Dodge. My Company and Co. F of
our regiment were ordered to support two
pieces of flying artillery in advance of the
main column. Only fifteen of our command
reached the points designated; and in our
retreat to the main army were rendered
tintit for duty, and sent to the hospital.
After three months, I returned to duty, and
remained with my regiment until May 7,
ltti;4, and on that day, at the battle of ltain
bridge, I with thirty-three others of our
regiment were taken prisoners of war. Ve
arrived at Andersonville on or shoot the
fifth day of June, where I remained until
the last of December, during which time I
contracted the scurvy to such an extent that
my left leg was contracted to its uttermost,
being block from the foot to about half-way
betwpen the knee and hip; and in this
horrible condition I left Andersonville for
Florence, South Carolina, where I remained
a prisoner nntil February 2(. Our exchange
papers were signed at feast Ferry, making
me a prisoner of war nine months and
twenty days. From that day to this I have
suffered from scurvy, causing iiuliizestion
and constipation to such mi extent that from
December 2t to March 18 I had only eibt
operations of the bowels. Since I was
mastered out of service, July 9, istfl, I have
tried the very best physicians, but they
conld givR me very little relief. On March
17, 18!0, the Kickapoo Indians oame here
with their remedies. I commenced taking
the Indian Sagwa March IS, and had an
operation of the bowels that day, and after
the third day I had an operation of the
bowels every day. I now have no pains.
My appetite is restored I am paining in
strength every day, and I thank God they
came here with their remedies. I am
totally blind, and have been for five years,
for winch the government gives me a pen
sion of seventy-two dollars per month, hut I
am happy and contented, thanks to Sagwa.
In conclusion, dear comrades, I will say
I want you who are suffering as I did so
long with scurvy and the ills that follow It,
to write to me, and I will cheerfully answer
your letters for the love I hear yon and
suffering humanity. I am a member of
