Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report.
.All in Arms to Prevent the Passage of the
Chicago, March 8. Insurance fratern
ities in Chicago and elsewhere through
out the state are in aims against Fenatt
bill No. 100, introduced by C. Porter
JohneoD, and which it la claimed, if
passed, will drive all fraternal societies
oat ot the state. A numoer ot re pre
tentatives of societies left for Sprinz
lield last nUht to lobby against the bill,
and they will be joined by others, so
there is a determination to fight the
treasure to the death. In view of the
fact that a big majority of mtmbers of
the general assembly are count c tea
with one or more mutual bentlit organ
izations whose existences are threat
ened, ttie fate of the bill, in its pns n
shape at least, seems to be sealed.
Among the fraternities imperiled by
the bill are the lioyal Arcanum, Ai.
cient Order ot United Workmen, Inde
pendent O.'der of lied Men, American
Legion of Honor, GraLd Army ot the
Republic, Knights of Honor, National
Union, Knights of Pytbia?, S ns of St.
George, Ancient Order of Hibernians,
Patriotic Order Sous of America, and a
score ot similar societies.
The principal otjection to Senator
Johnson's bill is that it provides that
the answers of applicants shall not be
warranties, but merely representations.
This clause, it is claimed, would throw
open the gates to impostors and would
prevent fraternities from protecting
themselves from imposition.
The biil atso requires a reserve
sufficient to cover the net cost accord
ing to the statd-trd of Insurances
issued. This would wipe oat of exist
ence every fraternal benefit association
in the state. It would be practically
imposible for them to comply with its
provisions, and won'd in effect cancel
the policies of more t ban 200,000 people,
most of whom have paid in large sums
of raonty, which would be lost.
, Among those who are bitterly de
bouncing the till, which they designate
a "sandbagging scheme," are Supreme
Scribe C. A. Warren of the Royal
League, RobertVan Sards Of the Royal
Arcanum; Leo Canman, president of
tbe Cook county cabinet of the Nation
al onion; T. V. Saunders, secretary of
the Independent Order of Forresters ;
John P. Abrensof tbe Royal Arcanum,
Frank N. Gage, H.H. C. Miller and
others. Mr. Warren left for Spring
field last night, and will be followed by
others. Speaker Craf c is a member of
the Royal Arcanum, ana it is hoped
that he will use his intiuenca against
the measure. Tbe biil was introduced
into tbe senate Jan. 25, acd is now on
its third reading. It will be taken up
this week and a final vote will be bad.
The friends of the mutual organiza
tiom have been sending bushels of let
ters to the senators urging thtm to de
feat the measure.
In the Illinois Sermtr.
SpringGeld, March 8. The sensation of
the day in legislat ive circles was the
attack by Senator Johnson of C ck on
tbe insurance . lobby. The Chicago
evening papers of jesterday contained
lengthy articles. and interviews with C.
A. Warren, supreme ecribeof the Royal
League, in which be denounced John
t on'B bill j regulating insurance com
panies as an iniquitous attempt to de
.stroyTraternal insurance companies in
the interest of old-line companies, and
insinuating that Johnson's motive was
one of revenge against fraternal socie
ties that refused nim admission.
Senator Johnson rose to a question
of privilege toJay, ana atter reading
the statement denounced it as an in
famous and outrageous lie. and one cal
culated to impugn his motives. He
demanded, in vindication of his own
course, that the biil be recommitted for
tbe fullest possible hearing. The bil',
he said, was drawn up by Miles S. Daw
son of Chicago, and approved by many
of the most prominc nt members of the
Chicago bar. Johnson paid his respects
to insurance lobbyif ts in language not
exactly parliamentary but very vigor
ous. The bill was recommitted as he
requested, and on motion of Campbell,
Warren was denied the privileges ot
the ficor of the senate hereafter.
This evening Warren issued a card
over his signature alleging that the bill
was in the interest of old line Insur?
ance companies and Inimical to the

On Wednesday last in the railway
lepot at Joslin we were severely
taken to task bv one of our dear re
publican friends for having the pre-
sumution and audacitv to criticise a
republican government -official, and
especially the president of the United
States. 'We admitted that it might
be very wicked to do so. viewed from
a republican standpoint, but as our
friend was leaving upon the train,
conversation upon that topic was cut
short. Nevertheless, as our friend
informed us that he was a subscriber
of the Amirs and read our humble
communication. I have a few words
to say in explanation. As I see it
the trouble and grievance is right
here: The republican party has been
so long in otlice that it not only
fancies itself the salt of the earth,
but that it is the government of the
United States and that it should re
main so for all time to come. It has
been so long in otlice that it has be
come arrogant and abusive, and a
vote cast for any other party was a
vote thrown away, and as Robert In
gersol saiil in a campaign speech,
that although ho would not claim
that all democrats were traitors anil
horse thieves, yet all horse thieves
and traitors were democrats, that
the prohibitionits were nothing
but a democratic side show com
pared to the sore headed office-seekers
and cranks, whose speakers and lec
turers were all paid by the demo
cratic party. In fact, to make a long
story short that the only road to
heaven lay through the republican
party, And, although the republicans
themselves have pulled their own
wigwam over their own heads, and
the party has been defeated and
snowed under by the actions of its
own pure and immaculate leaders.
Nevertheless with "malice and hatred
they attribute their defeat to prohi
bitionists, and pronounce as traitors
all those who dared to vote any other
but a republican ticket. It fact, it is
a standing claim that the republican
party is the great moral and temper
ance party, and that that party has
done all for temperance that ever has
been done, and you might as well try
to block up the falls of Niagara with
a wagon load of sawdust as to try to
convince them to the contrary.

It was many years hence and the
movement for the emancipation of
woman from the thralldom of ages
had been crowned with complete suc
cess. Two persons were sitting in the
front parlor. Even in the dim, uncer
tain light of tho coal fire the supply
of coal was not yet exhausted it was
plainly evident that they were a slen

on her knees, with "clasped hands and
tearful eyes. He was on the sofa, with
downcast mien and many a hot, tu

"Be mine," she urged.
The young man was much dis
traught and his lower-register bass
voice trembled when at last ho spoke.
"It is so sudden," he faltered and
nervously lingered the hem of his
"Kdwin, you must have suspected."
"Xo," he replied, simply. "It is uot
the place of a man to suspect. It is
for us only to await the asking."
In adoration she gazed upon tho agi
tated figure before her. Fairly intoxi
cated wilh the vision, she forgot her
self for a moment. With a sudden
movement she threw her arms about
the shrinking form of the youth and
in a moment would have imprinted a
kiss upon the dewy lips.
With a frantic effort he freed him

"Go away from me."
"Do you dismiss me forever?"
"I do. Go."
As she left the room she crushed
her hat over her eyes and groaned.

and that she was muttering bitterly.
It was many years hence and the
movement for the emancipation of
women from the thralldom of ages had
been crowned with complete success.
Success in. Life.
What is success in life, and who is
the successful man? Is it not he who
sets out in life wilh the determination
to accomplish a certain object, con
centrates all his energies upon its at
tainment, ami attains it, no matter
what else befalls him? If. then. I
strive to be richt like the late Jay
Gould, and win riches, am I less suc
cessful because at last, like hum. I am
afllielod with bad health, which cuts
short my days and prevents mo from
enjoying my riches? Am I less suc
cessful as a lawyer or a banker be
cause my wife is a vixen or my children
are spendthrifts? Most certainly not.
Yet many persons would seem to think
I am. Why, asks a great Roman sat
irist, do you wish for wealth, which
ruined Seneca; or for eloipience, which
caused Demosthenes and Cicero to be
assassinated; or to be a great general
like Hannibal, who was defeated at last
and killed himself iu exile? But did
not each of these men win the very
thing he aspired to win? Why, then,
judge of his career by its last days, as
if its character depended mainly on
its catastrophe? Why regard a man'a
life as successful if it end triumph
antly, and as a failure if it end disas
trously? If Hannibal and Napoleon sought to
be great generals, and because such,
were they less successful because they
tinally met with reverses in war and
died ingloriously ? Was General Grant
an unsuccessful man because ho died
of a very painful disease? Was Will
iam Pitt, who aspired to be and be
came the leading statesman and Par
liameatary orator of Great Britain,
unsuccessful because his efforts to
crush the hydra headed power of Na
poleon were defeated by tho victory at
Austerlitz and he sunk under the blow?
If he won the highest station in the
kingdom was First Lord of the Treas
ury and Chancellor of the Exchequer
did he not obtain the object of his
wishes, albeit he died of a broken
heart? Because, again, the object of
a man's life pursuit does not satisfy
him when gained, because
