The gallant 101 of Illinois held its
first annual meeting at Springfield
A Memthis paper says this year's
summer girl will wear green gloves
and green shoes. There would seem
to be something lacking in the de
scription of the costume.
The oldest violin in the world was
found in an Egyptian tomb, dating
about 3,000 B." C. It would seem
from this that ancient Egyptians
were afflicted the same as the peopl
of to dav.
Jcpge Moktlano, the democratic
candidate for the house in the S6th
district, will be elected on tbe 19th
inst., three days after the legislature
has adjourned sine die. 4,I am only
going through the motions," he
wrote to a friend the other day. "If
the republicans should run a candi
date against me he would have as
good a chance to get into the legis
lature as I will."
SSt. Louis Republic: John Eddy,
the new postmaster at Bloomington,
is one f the 101. He evidently does
not wear his gold medal for nothing,
and it is equally evident that no man
is more entitled to such a badge of
honor. He has cleaned out the
Bloomington postofliee in opposition
to a mugwampand republican howl,
which reached the ears of the post
master general. Mr. Bissell has
finallv indorsed Eddy's action, but
before he did it the republicans were
all out and democrats in their places.
Civil service be ," says John.
I think it was democratic service
the people voted for at the last elec
tion." A new democratic paper, named
the Kankakee Sun, is in process of
founding and will issue from Kanka
kee. 111. about June 14. The oQice
will be located in a spacious new
building, and will be thoroughly
equipped for the publication of a
first-class newspaper and fine job
printing. Associated with II. L. Beard
in this enterprise is II. L. Sammons,
formerly local editor of the Inde
pendent at Milford, 111. He will pos
sess a half interest, and the firm
name will be styled Beard & Sam
mons. O. F. "Morgan, Springfield
correspondent of the Iroquois Coun
ty Times and clerk of the house judi
ciarv committee, will be employed
upon the staff.
Mr. Eckels and the Broken Hankers.
One of the most interesting, not
to sav alarming, phases of the finan
cial situation is shown in the at
tempts of recently failed financial
banks to resume business. Another
interesting, but nt alarming, phase
is exhibited by young Mr. Eckels,
the comptroller of the currency, who
peremptorily forbids the unsuccess
ful bankers to resume. A Chicago
concern which went to the wall only
the other day, has importuned Mr.
Eckels to be allowed to reopen its
doors. So has a Dakota concern,
whose sole owner, in the guise of a
national banker, carried on a wild
cat speculative business until the
"close times" forced him to suspend.
Mr. Eckels1 reply to the Dakota
'banker" was peremptory. He told
the wildcatter that "no banks doing
business under such methods" would
be permitted to use the name of the
government to regain the confidence
of the people. To the Chicago bank
ers the comptroller was equally firm.
The comptroller of the currency,
though he is said to lack an exten
sive Technical knowledge of banking,
appears to have that which may be
of equal value, namely, an abund
ance of good horse sense. The sen
timent of the country is in accord
with these official refusals. The
events of the past few weeks have
shown anew the desirability of keep-in"-
speculative business wholly apart
from banking. There is an undenia
ble stringency in the money market,
and it will continue at least until the
government shall have given some
assurances of its financial policy.
Meantime, people do not want wild
catters sitting in the seats of bankers.
For the unlucky banks that haye
,mnf to the wall to reopen their doors
would be to invite a repetition of
their former disasters in circuui
stances not nearly so easily borne.

t- it-.. :n on or a of societies and
exclusive organizations formed for
. . 1 luinttHt or
the purpose oi mutual -mutual
admiration or both. We
have societies representing states,
other societies representing Ameri
cans of several generations, and still
others representing Americans of
but one generation, who are anxious
that there shall be no more first gen.
erations born in this country. And
it mar well be admitted that if these
are to represent the spirit of the
class it is high time to stop the sup-
ut occasionally an association is
organized representing 'something
more than a mere spirit of caste, a
sectional feeling, a physical survival
of an illustrious ancestry, or a snob
bishness, which seeks to withhold
from others what it has itself n-
joyed.v One of these is now called
the 101, and by that name it is known
and recognized everywhere in this
country as a body which won the
first battle in a conflict which will
finally result in the greatest reforms
of the century. The remarkable
demonstrations which followed the
election of Senator Palmer two years
ago, unparalleled in any similar con
test in our history, were not so much
a tribute to the victorious candidate
as to the principle which has tri
umphed in his election and to the
men who had upheld and vindicated
it in its trial. It was realized that
upon the democratic members of the
assembly, in the absence of law,
rested the success or failure of a re
form which had been made necessary
by the aggressions of plutocracy in
the United States senate. The pop
ular tribute was accorded to them
more than any one man.
Senator Palmer's defeat would
have indefinitely postponed the re
form in senatorial elections. His
success has hastened and is hasten
ing it. The country has had abun
dant evidence of the fact since the
day of his election that the people
. , . . I-
are arming towara a sixiceniu con
stitutional amendment embodying
all there is of the Illinois idea and
carrying it forward to a more per
fect application to our system of
government. Before this is accomp
lished there must be a struggle with
Plutocracv, which will not surrender
without it its jossiblo control of the
upper branch of congress. In such
a contest the members of such an
organization as this can do great and
effective work by keeping alive, as a
body, the recollections of a great
popular triumph and by contributing
as individuals to formulating in law
the principle behind that triumph.
For this reason the ftepublie wel
comes the Illinois legion. Xot for
what its members have done, though
that is much; not for duty well per
formed, for duty must be done with
out resrard to psalms or incense.
But bv the force of illustrious exam
ple for others to follow and the glory
of an achievement which will serve
as a constant inspiration to those
who are enlisted for the cause, the
Illinois legion justifies its existence
and merits a place apart from those
who only vaunt themselves with
sounding brass and tinkling cymbal.

A TRIP TO EUROPE.
Rev. M. A. Nordstrom has Words of
Praise for the Scott Medical Insti
tute Catarrh of the Nose, Throat
Kev. M. A. Nordstrom says: "I
am a clergyman residing at Wood
hull, 111.," and have frequently
thought I would have to resign my
charge. The cause of my trouble
was catarrh, and that in its worst
form, as I have been so informed by
noted specialists in Europe and
America. I grew very weak, had
severe headache, and spots would ap
pear before my eyes, mucus dropped
continually into my throat, and,
passing into my stomach, caused dis
tressing pain. I became deaf in
fact so bad I could scarcely hear.
KEV. M. A. NOKPSTKOM, VlOIHL"Ll.,
Having been in this condition for
10 vear " " '" lieing
acquainted at the Augustanaco-.cge,
at which institution 1 studied for the
ministry, I was there informed of
the success of the Scott Medical In
stitute in treating such diseases. I
am thankful to sav I visited them,
and happy to say :-C U H K IV'- Af
ter treatiiig in Europe and this coun
try without success, I can say truth
ful!I am cured, and the physicians
of the Scott Medical Institute cured
me in two months."1
A copv of this statement can. be
seen at the Scott Medical Institute,
with Kev. Mr. Nordstrom's signa
ture. ' TAKE TREATMENT NOW!
Time and again the physicians of
the Scott Medical Institute have ad
vised patients in desperate stages of
catarrhal trouble to wait until sum
mer before taking treatment. Time
and again they have urged the neces
sity of taking treatment while the
weather was favorable to a cure.
Now is that time. Those who suf
fer from catarrh should take advan
tage of all the influences that operate
now in favor of a cure. They should
not put off treatment until next win
ter's stormy days, but should pru
dently 'mend their roof while the
sun shines." Now is the time, and
the opportunity is just what is de
sired for the worst cases. Do not let
it go by, but place yourself under
treatment of the Scott Medical Insti
tute, and have done for you in the
next month or two what might not
be possible to do until next summer.
HAVE YOL CATARRH OF THE STOMACH?
If so, you are an easy victim for
Asiatic cholera. Attend to it now!
