The laiK' America is a newspa

mainly to polities and sporting mat

presumably to purge the democratic

mugwumps. Its editor, (leorge II.

Another political prize has come

he will, as will Attorney General Ol

bert. Judge Lochren believes he
will kill one of the principal roots of
the pension evil by making the medi
cal boards which examine applicants
for pension entirely democratic, in
stead of allowing one republican on
each board of three as has been done.
Speaking of this change he is quoted
as saying: "One of the things
the democrats have committed them
selves to do is to sift as far as possi
ble the rubbish which has been drift
ing into this pension cesspool. The
party has commuted itself to reform
in this matter, and there is not a
better way to make a start than by
having only democrats on these
boards." It is not stated as a fact
that President Cleveland has ap
proved this action of Judge Lochren,
but it is hardly probable that such a
radical change would have boon an
nounced by him unless it had been
previously approved by the presi
dent. Story f a fchrcwil Monk,
At a monastery in southern France Amer
ican nnd other visitors are proudly told the
utory of the exploits of a monk who was
once one of the inmates of the convent. The
monks iK-Ionjj to a mendicant ordt-r and
send out one of their members periodically
on betctrinK excursions. The hero of the
story it haioned many years nsn had
been out on one of these expeditions and
was coming back to the monastery, his
purse well filled, when he was attacked in
a corner of the wooil by a highwayman,
who pointed a pistol at his head.
The monk "came down" instantly, cry
ing for help and tossing his purse to tlio
thief, who put it in Ids coat.
"Ah," paspjd the monk, '"take it, take
it: 15::t what n wipijins the prior will nvo
me if he thinks I mad.? no resistance! If
you are a highwayman of the fine old
school, yon will do me a favor."
"Certainly," said :!ie thief. He was anx
ious to deserve tin- compliment.. "Any
thing you wish. 'What is it?"
"I want to prove to the prior that I de
fended myself heroically against your at
tack. Won't Ton please shoot a few boles
through that coat?"
He pulled ofT his cloak and threw it
down. The thief courteously pointed his
pi.-tel at it nnd pulled the trigger. There
was no report.
"What's the matter?" asked the monk.
"I must own to you," said the highway
man, "that I possess no such commodity
"Well, you're a e,necr highwayman. Thru
please si.ih the cloak a little with vo.ir
"I am also destitute of a knife," said the
thief, "I have no weapon of any kind. I
attack n.r.ie but cowards and fools."
"You do, eh" exclaimed the monk.
"Then 1 guess I'm as goad as yon. Come
lie fell upon the thief and smote him hip
and thigh. When he had mr.de f;ui:e sure
that he had b-aten the wretch into uncon
sciousness, he repossessed hhas'lf of the
purse arid v.-'tit on his way to the monas

The new senatorial apportionment
bill will lay Cullom on the shelf and
make a way for some good democrat.
Those who mav aspire to wear the
senatorial toga are: Speaker Crafts,
Gov. Altgcld, (Jen. Black. Hon. Ben
T. Cable and Win. It. Morrison. Hon.
O. F. Berry, of Carthage, being a
hold-over, will enjoy oilicial life an
other session, and can then retire to
his law practice, as the apportion

gressional, will leave him in demo
cratic districts: and his congression

This administration is going to be
democratic, in fact, as well as in
name. The overwhelming verdict of
the eople is to be obeyed, and no
republican" is to be left in a place of
responsibility. The pace toward
fhis goal has not been precipitate, but
it has been and will be steady and
sure until it is reached. Secretary
Gresham took the lead, and there
isn't more than one or two republi
cans left in important positions in
the state department. Secretary
Carlisle is a good second, and it will
not be. long before all of the chiefs of
divisions of the treasury department
will be democrats. Secretary Smith
has begun to call for the resignations
of the republican chiefs of divisions
in the interior department and he
proposes to keep it up until they
are all out. Secretary Morton has
not been behind in proportion to the
size of his department. Postmaster
General Bissell has had to devote so
much time to the selection of post
masters that he hasn't made very
