The first day of April, we "will

way the mattor~ looks now it will
be a very quiet eloction.

Central is on a boom. A joint

To a man who has kept cool and
looked honeath the suirface of
evenits in this Stato for thot past
year, it is becoming lahiner every
day that the Alinneo and the Ro

irreparable damage through his er
ratic ways and was finally repudi
ated by the Allianconmon and 1(1
without a job, when ho was brough t
over here as oditor of tho Register.
His character is such that prin
ciples have no weight with him and
he bonds all his energies serving
the men who happen to be con trol
hing him at a given time. His
protestations of being an Allianoc
man are only from thet tooth out
and miado entirely for effect, as he
hasn't aflilated with the Order for
years and has not paid any duies.
A little watchmg of his course andi
actions will furniish ample proof of
what we sav.
There is hardly a prominent Ro..
:'rimer in the State, except the lit
lo clique who control hinm, who he
ias not maligned andl misrepro
ented through his paper, and in
>ther ways has done everything
oesible to sow the seods of discord
md dissension in omir raniks. lHe
accused Goy. Tfillnian of bribery in
:onnection with the location of the
lirl's Industrial Schoole last Sum
ner. His other attacks have boon
qgually f allacious, but he seems
iot to be deterred by a lack of truth
n his accusations.
WeV count the columns of abmusa, he
dias heaped on us lately a nothing
and have paid but little attoption
to his assaults on our loadlers, but
we are forced to do some,- plain
talking by his attack of the -State

It was at Lincoln, Ill., that a
religious revival was in progress,
and the evangelist, after a pow
orful sermon on the Christian
duty of dlebt paying, called upon
fll the members of the -congro
gation who pairl their debts to
stand. The congregation rose
almost to a manm. After thoy
were seated, the envangelist
invited those who did not pay
their debts to stand. A solitary
forlorn looking individual rose
to his feet, and explained that
while he found himself in the
category very unwillingly, .he
could not help himself, as he was
the editor and proprietor of the .
local paper, and could not pa~y

him their subscription. Such a
flood of moniey as poured into
that office the next morning
had never been known in the
