Militia of Illinois. Krom Session Law cf the
Last Gereral Assembly.
Illinois Republicans who feci that their
State administration should be Indorsed
this year ought not object to a plain state-jn-ntf
the manner in which the taxpayers
money has been expended by the "clear.,
honest, economical and businesslike admin
istration of Governor Richard Yales" I
than confine rnjself to a fe simpie facts
and che the Governor and his apologists
the opportunity they will improve no doubt
to explain u. the peopie.
The books of the btate departments and
the penal and charitable Institutions In Il
linois are balanced on the thirtieth day of
citry June, for the reason thai the uuex
perKied appropriations on that day lapse in
to the treasury, and accounts for the new
year are opened Once In awhile this pro
vision la cbansed by the bill making he
appropriation.
The IaM. Legislature appropriated for the
year. 1901. the magnificent sum of J3B,C0
lor the annual tour of ouij of tne National
Guard. It is true about fci.0.0 of this sum.
It is claimed, was expended for armory
rents. When the books In the Adjutant
Generals' olRcc were balanced the other
day it was dls-overel that all of the C03
Ot) had b-en expended, and there were un
paid bills to ti.e amount of nearly S100.WO
due various persons on account of the en
campment last jear. The Adjutant Gen
eral's oftiee acknowledges a deficit of oer
J50.0CO. and it is certain the estimate U In
exc"s of that sum.
Itevponallilllty Fall on Governor.
Thi money was paid out, or the bills
were contracted, directly under the super
vision of Governor Richard Yates, who
muii. undfr the statute, approve all bills
before th- State Auditor will draw a war
rant on Hie State Treasury. Governor
"Yates cannot sh.ft the responsibility. He
must stand In his own shoes and assume
IL
ThM enormous sum over J2S.00O. taking
the figures of the Adjutant General's ci
lice was scattered with prodigal hand
during an encamrment that extended over
about two months. When the bills are all
In It will doubtless be found that the total
will reach at least CW.W. This is J150,
( a month, or iS.OTO a day.
What rat-hole, what cavern in the sea,
was filled w.th this vast sum? There w-as
one regiment in camp each week, and- In
cluding rank and file, noncommissioned,
eomt.-ffsloncd ofilcers, field and staff, the
average number each week during the en
campment could not have exceeded 1,0X1
men.
Imagination wholly falls to account for
an "economical." or "honest" or "business
like" expenditure of a day each for a
Total of l.vv men. The entire guard couM
hate been lodged and boarded at the bet
hotels In St. Louis or Chicago for less than
thatoflgure. The best hotels in Sptlngfleld
cater to their custom for half that pric
per diem. It Is not necessary to lntlst on
this point. Even- citizen of the State
knows it is true, will the Governor render
an account of his stewardship of the pro
digious militia fund? It is in order for him
to show that it was honestly and economi
cally expended.
Did Soldier Get Their Shore?
Did the soldiers get it did they get even
their share of the $300,000? They probably
got all the law allowed them, and the ex
act figure for the entire National Guard is
SZf,Ui.i2. There still remains about $24j.
o0 expended during the two monihs, for
the Governor to account for. He will shojv
that $22,CX) was spent for transportation
an average cf nearly $2 a man, wnlch is a
frightful extravagance, considering the ac
commodations furnished the rank and file.
There still remains $223,000.
The item of groceries, usually so Im
portant In feeding a body of men. amounts
only to 8.3; butterine, JL07S; meat and
lard, $3,S5. Under the grocery head was
Included bread. Here we have about $17.
009, and there irtill remains over $200,000 for
the Governor to account for.
It was the people's money, wrung" from
them by the taxgatherer. What has Gov
ernor Yates to say in defense of his militia
department?
Adjutant General James B. Smith, it is
paid, expects to save $25,000 or $30,000 this
year by consolidating tie regiments into
brigades, and having one brigade meet
near Chicago, saving transportation. The
negro regiment will not be permitted to go
into a. camp of Instruction at alL They are
expected to swallow their chagrin. They
y111 vote the ticket, anyhow. The white
boys are the ones that require some pam
pering and coddling by the Governor. They
ore a pretty Independent set of fellows.
Taten Ilendannrters Here Expensive,
General Smith's estimate of saving this
year is rry high. If he Is not extremely
cautious he will show that the headquar
ters of Governor Yates cost the taxpayers
of the State at least $100,000 during the
two months' encampment In 190L The ap
pointment of General Smith, by the way,
Ik one of the few really good ones the
Governor has made.
I am not attempting to fix any part of
the blame upon the late Major General
Iteece. He was a soldier and certainly
countenanced no extravagance that was not
ordered or requested by his superior, the
Governor Indeed. I know of one instance
where he entered a vigorous protest to
livery bills being contracted by one of the
Governor's secretaries and charged to the
National Guard. J. L. PICKERING.
Young Hair
That means rich hair,
heavy hair, no gray hair. Is
yours thin, short, gray? Just
remember, Ayer5 s Hair Vigor
always restores color to gray
hair, all the dark, rich color
it had years ago. It stops
falling of the hair, also. Has
been tested for 50 years.
"About a year ago my hair nearly all came out. I thought I
would try Ayer's Hair Vigor. I used onlytone bottle of it, and
now my hair has come in real thick and a little curly.'' Mrs.

received none can ssy. It may be due to
his fall upon the sidewalk. The father,
who is a brloV.ljer, has ark'd f"-oner

will b held to-dny.
Children who 'wre with the boy make
conflicting statements. Some say that one

over some trivial Incident that happened
whUe they were paswlng. struck him across
the neck with a torpedo cane. The name
of the girl has not been ascertained.
When struck, it Is said, the boy started
for home, and his playmates continued
their amusements. Several moments later
Virginia, the t-year-old sister of Paul,
found him. and, calling for the help of Ed

Into the house. The burden was too much
for them and they called their parents, who
were in the rear. The child, was carried
Jnto the houe, where he died befcre a phy

REPUBLIC SPECIAL
Baltimore. ML, July L Ofilclals of the
Western Maryland Railroad and the Fuller
Gould syndicate to-day laughed nt reports
from New York that Baltimore- would rot
be made an Eastern terminus of the Gould
Wabash system.
The fact that ths syndicate may secure
the Drum Point road, a partly finished line,
ninety miles long, to deep tidewater. In
Calvert County, started the story that,
alter raying iltXto.WO for the Western
Maryland road and its tidewater privileges,
Baltimore was to be cut out.
Edward Lauterbacb of New Tork is one
of the two owners of the Drum Point, or
Baltimore and Southern Railroad. Frank
Beldler of Baltimore, the other owner, has
admitted that negotiation? with the Fuller
syndicate are on. Fifty-eight miles of tbt
road are graded The company owns fifty
acres of land on a frcnt. where the water
is ninety feet deep. The capitalization is

nowever, inai tne uouia system elevators
and other terminals will be at Baltimore.
The franchises of the Baltimore ttnd
Southern would be of great value to the
Goulds for their contemplated extension to
Washington. Congress has passed a bill
authorizing the Columbia ana Southern to
construct to Washington. This Is the
Gould scheme. To come to Baltimore by
the Western Maryland, and then go all the
way tound to Drum Point wou.d be too
great at Increase of haul, except, perhaps,
for through shipments of soft coal. The
Goulds will use the Baltimore and South
ern's privileges fcr an extension of their
system to the national capital. Plans fcr
the .terminals at Baltimore nre nearly Cn-
ished.
