SrKixGFiF.i-P Register: That was
a gracious and deserved compliment
the pages of the seriate paid' to Lieu
tenant Governor (Jill in the presenta
tion they made to him yesterday of
an elegant gold-headed cane. The
cane is a very handsome ebony stick
with an elaborately chased gold head,
on which is engraved "Lieut. Gov.
Joseph H. Gill, from the Senate Fages
3Sth General assembly." It speaks
volumes for the admirable qualities
of Gov. Gill that he has -won the af
fection of the boys, who. whatever
mav be said of children of larger
growth, "cannot bt fooled by false
pretences. Gov. Gill has made a
model presiding ofiicor, and has
proved himself to be in every respect
the right man in the right. place.
IIenky Wattkicson ha?' announced
his retirement from practical politics,
and will hereafter, if he maintains
his position, not be a personal factor
in the management of party affairs.
In his farewell to politics Mr. Wat
Now, more than ever before, it
shall be the purpose and policy of the
Courier-Journal to abstain from in
terest in the concrete affair's of the
party. Its editor has sat in the last
three democratic national conven
tions against his own expressedjle
sire and protest. He never expects
again to cross the threshold of a po
litical convention, state or national,
or to-make a political speech. He
has served his turn and has earned
his release. His place is here in this
office, and his services for good or
for ill in these columns. There
ought to be some one who wants
nothing, who can neither be bought
nor bullied, and who may be trusted
at all times to write the truth, as he
sees it, for truth's sake, and for the
advantage of no cliaue or faction
That duty the editor of the Courier-
Jonrnal has always set himself, and
to it as long as he lives he will con
tinue to address himself.
The Illinois legislature of '93
wound up its affairs yesterday and
adjourned. By a vote of 26 nays to
16 yeas the senate refused to suspend
the rules to take up the state fair
bill, and that measure is dead. The
history of the bill furnishes almost
an exact parallel to the bill locating
the fair s5lx years ago, when Spring
field won the fight in the house, but
lacking one vote of the required two
thirds in the senate to susjend the
rules and take up the .fair bill on
third reading, was defeated at the
close of the session. Feoria made a
vigorous tight for the location this
year and won in the house. The people
of this locality on the point of con
venience would have been glad to
have had the matter settled in Peo
The adjournment prevented the
second and third readings and conse
quently the passage of the following
bills: The state fair bill; the bill
allowing the creation of drainage dis.
tricts; the arbitration bill; the bill
to establish the Western hospital for
the insane, and the bill to abolish
Monday Opening of the World- Fair.
Philadelphia Item: The masses
will have something more attractive
than the catch-penny show and the
Evansville 'Standard: It shall
profit the World's fair directors little
to win a few extra dollars and lose
Itheir reputations as law-abiding citi
sens. -A .-''
Brooklyn Citizen: As to the Sun
day question, when it first came to
the front, we said what, events are
fully verifying, that whether the fair
should be be open or not, ought - to
be taken up and deeided on grounds
of business policy. ,
Cincinnati Times-Star: The gen
tlemen who boycott the fair must
boycott street and team railways,
for they all transact more orless
business on Sunday.
Streator Free Press: In the mat
ter of closing the fair on Sundays,
the Sabbatarian and the street fakir,
like the lamb and the lion, are lying
Omaha Bee: An open fair on the
hrst day of the week would be both a
moral and an economical advantage
to tens of thousands of working peo
ple in and around Chicago.
Globe Democrat: The decision in
favor of the opening of the World's
fair on Sunday is a sensible and
froper one, and the result will be a
argely increased attendance.
Bloomington Bulletin: The ac
tion of the World's fair directory in
voting to open the exposition Sun
days, will be approved by four-fifths
of the great American people.
Kansas City Journal: The partial
Sunday opening of ahe World's fair,
if it prove satisfactory, will soon be
abandoned in response to the public
demand for complete opening.
Philadelphia Record: Puritanical
bigotrv, such as that which in east
ern cities locks the museums and
libraries, prohibits concerts and
closes casinos is neither recognized,
nor understood in Chicago.
Chicago Dispatch: This practical
ly denationalizes the fair, but no one
who understands the situation and
has at heart the interests of the ex
position will regret such an outcome.
Open the gates.
Denver Sun: The combination of
the pulpit, the saloon, and the gam
bling den to close the gates of the
fair on Sunday is one that the com
mon sense of the country does not
view with satisfaction.
Decatur Review: If Sundav open
ing is to be justitied it is because the
exhibits will exert educating and el
evating intlnenees. Unless the build
ings are opened the fair degenerates
into a catch penny-grab game.
Denver Sun: These bickerings
should cease, as the people at large
are becoming disgusted with such
unseemly proceedings, and will ulti
mately become lukewarm in the mat
ter of aifing. by their presence, in
the success of the great undertaking.
San Francisco Chronicle: The
crowds that besieged the entrance to
the World's fair grounds on Sunday
furnishes the best proof of the popu
lar desire for the opening of the gates
to the greaf how on the only leisure
day of har"dworking people.
Dehyer'Tirrws; It has been de-
elded to open the World's fair
grounds on Sundav at a nominal ad
mission price, but to keep the build
ings tightly closed. It is hard to
see how any one, be he Sabbath
closer or Sabbath opener, can object
to this arrangement.
Chicago Journal: The Journal
congratulates the directory on hav
ing accepted the honorable, but
financially onerous alternative by
which the World's fair gates will be
opened to the common people on the
day set apart by the comraon consent
of Christians for them.
St. Jo Gazette: The directors of
the World's Columbia exposition set
tled the Sunday opening question by
abrogating their contract with con
gress to close on the Lord's day in
consideration of an appropriation of
$2,500,000. The money will be re
turned and the fair will run seven
days in the week.
New York Mercury: There is lit
tle doubt that the quesiion of Sunday
opening of the World's fair will soon
be settled in favor of popular right
and justice, and the entertainment
and instruction of the masses. The
forcing of many thousands to remain
idle and listless over Sunday at
heavy expense is an evil already rec
ognized as intolerable.
St. Jo Herald: The decision of the
World's fair directors to throw open
Jackson park to the public Sunday,
during the continuance of the expo
sition, is meeting with the unquali
fied approval of all. save the narrow
religionists, who in the name of Sab
bath observance, would close its
treasures of art, science and skill to
the toiling thousands who have'that
day and that day only for rest, recre
ation and pleasure.

It has recently been discovered that on
American soil the sun never sets. The
British have for years eung a song in glori
fication of the fact that tho sun never sets
on the soil of that clime.
But, lot now comes the stars and stripes,
which are never out of sight of the son.
The exact situation of the geographical cen
ter of the United States is a surprise to any
one who has not given the subject careful
attention. The most eastern point of the
United States is Quoddy head, Maine, the
western, Attoo island, Alaska; the most
northern. Point Barrow, Alaska; the most
southern. Key West. The center of the
quadrangular figure formed by uniting
these four points is located at crossing of 55
degrees north latitude and 110 degrees west
longitude, about 420 miles north of the
north line of Montana It is also true of
the United States as of Great Britain that
the sun never sets on our territory, for
when it is 6 p. m. on Attoo island, Alaska
it is 9:36 a, m. of the following day at East
port, Me. Exchange. ,

Key. 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. Tho cause of my trouble
was catarrh, and that in its worst
form, as I have been so informed ly
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 scarcilv hear.
REV. M. A. SOKPSTKOM. WOOPHCLL,
Having been in this condition for
10 years "vr.r i lloing
acquainted at the Augustana eo-.ege,
at which institution I 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 say I visited them,
and happy to say "C U K E D." Af
ter treating in Europe and this coun
try without success, I can say truth
fully I am cured, and the physicians
of the Scott Medical Institute cured
me in two months."
A copy 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 lefore 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 nextwin
ter's storm' days, but should pru
dently "mend their roof while the
sun shines.'1 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 VOL CATAKKI1 OK, THE STOMACH?
If so, you are an easy victim for
Asiatic cholera. Attend to it now!

Medical Institute pays for Personal
