THEY UMlft U8 LAWS. Officers of Citizens' Committee that Fought the Allen and Gas Bills Issue an Address to tbe Voters of Illinois. An addros has been Issued for wide circulation in this State, jrlvlup views of tlie citizens.' committee which fought tbe Allen bill and the pas WIN before the Fortieth Geueral Assembly nt gprlnglleld last year. It calW on the voters to defeat the men who may seek re-election to the legislature In spite of their records on bad measures. The nddres Is signed by the President and Secretary of the committee, and Is as follows: To the voters of Illinois: Two notor!ouly bad laws passed by the Tortleth Geueral Assembly of Illi nois' at the regular session stand out lu glaring relief. They were not party measures. The members who Hocked to their support were not Induced to do so by any fealty which they owed, nor by auy pledges which they had given. None such, at least, were known to their constituents. No party dared to, assume responsibility for these laws. No public Interest demanded them. The extraordinary privileges which they conferred were .given by the leg islature solely In response to the de mands of corporate greed and rapacity. The intluences which Induced the mem bers to forget their duty to their con stituents and to the State must have been most potent and persuasive. These bills were not passed without nutllclent opportunity to know their character. The public press had rung for months with wamiuu'S and expos tulations. Committee after committee of public-spirited citizens, with no mo tive save to protect the public from plunder and the State from disgrace, by public meetings, by printed pam phlets and by arguments to the mem bers themselves nt Springfield and nt home, had exposed the revolutionary and destructive character of the street railway and gas bills. Nay, more than that, when the street railway bills tlrst came to the House of Ilepresen tatlves the enacting clause was strick en out by an overwhelming majority and the enemies of the people were routed and temporarily driven to cov er. Thoe who voted for these meas ures on their final passage sinned against great light, and they have no cloak for their sin. The Iniquitous gas bill provided for the wholesale consolidation of the gas companies and gas business In any city lu the State. This bill was with out shadow of Justltlcatlon or excuse, nnd uoue was even pretended. It was passed solely at the dictation of the gas mist. It dellultely nbrogatcd all provi sions which had been mndo to secure competition and protect the rights of the people. The most solemn pledges given by the different gas companies for these purposes, nnd without which they could never have obtained the privil eges accorded them, have been Impu dently broken by them under the shel ter of this wicked nnd corrupt law. The settled and uniform policy of Illi nois to prevent and punish combina tions against public Interest was thus reversed and betrayed by recreant members of the Legislature. Lot the people not forget "By their fruits shall ye know them." It may well bo that some of those whose names follow were guiltless of corrupt motive In the votes they cast, but they are found In the very worst company aud In extremely suspicious circumstances. Possibly some of them were even not nwnro of the Intluences t work to accuro support for these bills. These guileless innocents, if any such there bo, ought to be kept nt homo o' nights by their friends for their own safety. The Seuntors whoso names, postof flcen and districts are given below voted for the Alien bill upon Its final pasago. TIiomj whose terms have ex pired are given In the first list of Sena tors.

Every one of thoe voted for tho In funior.H gas bill as reported at the time of Its passage except Messrs. Avery aud Hart, who were absent or not vot ing, aud Mr. Hammers, who voted no. To these should be ndded Speaker Ed C. Curtis, whose historic toothache prevented him from presiding, but was not sufficient to prevent his appoint ment of Charles E. Selby as Speaker tiro tern, during bin absence nt Mam moth Cave lu flagrant violation of his promise not to do so. Tho General Assembly Is tho solo re pository of legislative power, and Is In tended to bo the peculiar guardian of tho rights of tho people. Wheu tho rep resentatives do their duty they de servo full meed of recognition. When they sacrifice the rights of the people they should bo called sternly to ac count. Bad as were theno bills, the means employed to promote them were far worse. Devious methods guided them along their crooked course through the Legislature. Tho most adroit, power ful nnd wealthy lobby ever seen lu Springfield urged them forward. All this was n matter of public notoriety wheu tho bills wero pending. Tho lluctualing prlco for votes was rumored from time to time through tho places where members and those Interested In legislation wero wont to congregate. No ponton there of ordinary Intelli gence who kept his eyes nnd ears open could fall to bo awnro that Improper Influences wero belug used. The vicious practice of log-rolling may probably bo charged with some of tho afiirmatlvo votes for these cor rupt twin measures. This unjustifia ble mode of conducting legislation en ables n bold, venal minority to domi nate tho body of which they are mem bers aud procure tho pntisagc of the most unscrupulous measure. Tho tlmo has come for tho peoplo to recog. nlzo and condomn such practices. Those members who yield to threats or blandishments of this sort are not tho kind of legislative timber which Is needed. They ought to bo rebuked and they ought not to be sent back to Springfield. Tainted and rotten to tho core theno bills must bo repealed. Much nils chief and permanent harm has already resulted from their passage, but much more lies lu tho future. Wo call upon tho friends of good government throughout tho Stnto to put forth ev ery legltlnmto effort to nominate and elect men pledged to voto for the repeal of thoso laws. They must bo erused from tho statutes of Illinois. Lot the voters seo to It that legislative .Tudaues do not betray them. Put nono but honest men on guard. JOSIAH LOMBABD, Chairman Citizens' Committee. NEWTON A. PABTBIDGE, Secretary. CYANIDti'S DEADLY ATTRACTION TIiokc WI10 ttnnitlc (lie Drug Drawn At iiiont IrrcHtMllity to Hwiillnw It. "Just now we me engaged In the making of tons of cyanide of potas sium," said a member of a firm of man ufacturing chemists, "aud of all poisons this, to my mind, Is tin) most dangerous, because of a singular quality It pos sesses. It Is lu appearance so very at tractive to those who handlo It that they ore often seized with an nlmost overwhelming deshe to eat It. To ono' man It probably suggests sugar, If ho have a fondness for saccharine sub stances, and to another snow newly fallen, but to both It Is so alluring that they niav only overcome the temptation to put It In their mouths by great force of wlH power. "The very men who make It nnd who are most familiar with Its deadly pre pertles are pursued by an unreasonable desire to' eat tho poison, and ns long ns they remain In Its vicinity this ex traordinary craving endures. They know that to give way to tho craving means death almost Instant and hor rible, niul as a consequence are usually able to resist the strange temptation, but during tho last ten years we have been engaged In the manufacture of the drug four of our most Intelligent and steady workmen have committed suicide lu this way." "Ever feel like eating It yourself?" nsked the reporter. "Yes," the manufacturer replied. "Many times when In contact with tho cyanide fumes, nnd 1 have had to lento work precipitately In consequence. So well Is this curious fact known nil works where cyanide of potnsslin:i Is mndo that there are always two men at work together, and n Jar of ammonia, which Is tho antidote to the poison, Is kept nt hand." JOKE WAS ON THE DOCTOR. Anmvcrcil nit I'.nicrm'iiiy Cull nnd 1 HtlllJ.ooklnu for lllnl'iiy. One night recently 11 physician oa West Adams street was called up about 12 o'clock by a tieniendous ringing nt tho door bell. He rushed down stairs to find n woman tiembllng with ex citement, who grasped out: "Bun, quick, doctor-that little house across the street my husband-poison suicide." The doctor hurried over nnd found a burly fellow rolling about on 11 bed and groaning ns If lu terrible pain, ills wife and three other women his two laughters nnd a slster-ln-luw wero crying and wringing their hands. Thui'o was 11 bottle on the table labeled "Poison" nnd half of the contents were gone. "I 'sized up tho situation In two mln utcp," said the doctor, "and turned tho women out of the room nnd shut tho door." "Now. what do you mean by tills?" I said, giving thcfellowa good shaklug. "Oh, notliln', doc." ho said sheepishly as his groans subsided; "Jest foolln' tho women folks." It developed that tliesupposed sulcldo had come home drunk the night before mid that his wife had remonstrated with him. -And now there Is a bill to pay. Tho doctor sent It first to the wire, mid It was returned with 11 brief nolo to the effect that she wasn't pay ing her husband's bills. The husband returned It with tho suggestion that, as his wife had summoned tho medical man, she might meet the expense. Chicago Inter Ocean. The Mlgu Painter' Triumph. "What was the hardest Job I ever tackled, did you uskV" said the sign painter to 11 Now Orleans Tliiies-Dein. oenit reporter. "It was an ad' for smoking tobacco I painted 011 tho side of tho Grand Canyon on the line of the Denver and Bio Graudo Itallroad. I was working for 11 Buffalo concern that had a contract to put up n.oou land senpo signs for 11 tobacco company, mid a gang of us traveled over the country looking for good eu'ectlvo locations. This place In the canyon was as tough a proposition as miy sign writer evor went against. Tho sldo tliero went straight up about 200 feet, and nt tho top there was a big overhanging ledge. It was easy enough to let ilowu n lad dor from above, but on account of tho ledgo It hung at least forty feet out from tho face of tho rock. After studying It over for n wullo I spliced a couplo of fishing poles to gether and fastened a soft sponge to tbe end. That was my brush, and by lying flat on tho ladder I managed to do u very decent pleco of work; nt least, you could read It llko a book from below, and that was tho thing we wanted. When the railroad peoplo found out whnt I had doun they wero as mad as blazes, especially tho chief engineer, who was an aesthetic sort of n gent from Boston, and ho tried for nearly a month to get It off, letting down China men with scrubbing brushes on poles, but they only mndo It all tho brighter. At last ho got some brown paint, about tho color of tho rocks, and smear ed It out, but it took at least a dozen coats and cost a heap of money. H they had only let that sign stand It would have been a great addltlou to tho canyou. " A Good I'lro liliicller. On 0110 of our outings to the moun tains wo secured a quantity of very rich pitch pine which mndo such good kind ling wood that when It was gono tho old way of whittling tdiaviugs seemed very unsatisfactory, and wo set out to find sometliliu better. Pouring kero sene on makes the tiro start quickly, but wo have a prejudice against being burned alive. After various experiments wo hit upon tho following which Is safo and cheap aud good. Tako n flat ten pound lard pall. Break com cobs In two and stand the halves 011 end In tho pall until the bottom Is tilled. Then pour kcroicuo enough over them to wot the cobs and leave a little In tho bottom of the pall, so that half an Inch or less of tho cobs will stand lu the oil, Ono of theso pieces of cob laid lu tho gruto will light readily from a match mid burn strongly enough to start quite coarse kindling, aud provo a great help on cold winter mornings.

Try "Almnnnrls" on the side. It won't cost you any more than bottled lake water. ' For tents, awnings nnd waterproof covers go to Murray & Co., 320-333 South Canal street. These people are leaders lu this lino of goods. Murray & Company, who lead In the awning business, nnd who were located on Bnudolph street for eleven years, In vito you to call nt their new mammoth establishment, 320 to 333 South Canal street. Make it lemonade from "Almnnnrls" water very fine. "Alinnnnrls" Is tho highest located spring lu Waukesha, 100 feet above Fox Blver. Try n "high ball" made from "Al mnnnrls" water; It won't cost you auy more than lake water. The telegraph manual Issued by the Western Electric Company will tench any ono the art of teleirranhv. To cot a copy address Department 0 G, West ern Klcctrlc Company, 242 South Jef ferson street, Chicago, and Inclose 25 cents. "Aliuanarls" Is equal to Imported water, and doesn't cost you any more than common old lake water, put up by local bottlers. Ask for "Alinnnnrls," and Insist on having It. One of the most successful and relia ble contracting firms lu Chicago Is that of Nash & Dowdle, suite 211 nnd 212, 115 LnSallc street, In the Boauoke Building. The members of this firm are well known mid most highly re spected by the most solid business men lu Chicago. As n mixer with fine wines nnd liq uors, "Alumiiarls" has no equal. One trial of "Almnnnrls" will con vince the most skeptical. Dunlnp's famous hats nnd silk um brellas are the best In tho world. Man wants but little here below But, be It understood, No matter whether high or low, That little must bo good; Which may, explain why men of taste, Who always get tho best, Their heads by Diuilap lints are graced When they would be well dressed; For Diuilap blocks, the critics tell, In style mid texture all excel. One of the best places In Chicago to get n square meal Is nt the Wyoming Hotel restaurant, 200-274 South Clark street.

Tho Wellington mid best Chicago hotels now sell more Almaiiaiis than any other natural mineral water, and It Is also being used by the principal hotels, clubs aud res taurants In New York, Boston, Phila delphia and other Eastern cities. Mr. G. J. Maurer, 048-50 Pearl street, Cleve land, Ohio, Is solo agent for Almaunrls in that city, mid says ho sells more of It thmi all other waters combined. Mr. Maurer says ho Is rapidly displacing Apolllimrls water In his section, be cause he has been able to provo to his customers that Almnmirls Is a better natural mineral water than Apolllimrls and costs less. Ho nlso adds that the best hotels, clubs, restaurants nnd buf fets In Cleveland now use Almanuris In preference to Apolllnnrls, Almnnnrls retails at 15c per pint bottle, while Apollinmis costs you 25c per pint.
