Inquiries for the new bonds bv persons desir
ing to purchase continue to be made every day,
but thebouds are not forthcoming, and ills
now said Unit they will not be until ihu middle
of the coming week, owing to Die delay of the
printer. Thu Flnonco Committee, however, has
agreed to allow the interest on them to date
from the time the application for their purchase
was made,.nnd on the strength -of this the
Treasurer has taken In considerable money.
The Committee on Public Charities are loud
In their praise of the storekeeper and now
engineer at the Insane Asylum. They say Unit
the former is saving the people considerable
money, and doing his entire dutv, nnd that the
county was \ery fortunate in securing the
services of the latter. They found, on their
v*slt there Wednesday, that (he steam-pines
leading from the engine-room to the Asylum
were leaking badly under ground, having rusted
out lit some places, and they think that now
pipes will have to be supplied at an early day.
The rcsldcnis of La Orange, or some of them,
will never forget the Clark murder, nor yet. St.
Peter, who was charged with being Implicated In
the bloody deed. Some weeks npoSt.l'cter pro
cured a license toniarrv Miss Benoit, It will be re
membered, and yesterday some of the curious of
Unit village called upon the County Clerk to know
whether flic license hud been returned nr not,
and finding that K hud not been, expressed the
opinion that It never would be, anil that It hod
been gotten originally os » blind. One of them
said that since the trial St. Peter had called upon
Mrs. Clark several tunes, ole. The return of
the license, however, will settle all disputes,
ami 81. Peter ought to at least do tills much to
allav Uic suspicions of his La Grange friends.
The Committee on Public Charities were
around yesterday looking up new quarters for
the County Agent’s ulllcc. They looked at the
Oates 1 Building, Washington street, near Ca
nal, nmi offered SOS a month fur it for three
years, hut the owifur wanted SBS, and, beside,
did not care to make a lease for a term of years,
and no agreement was reached. They also
looked at a building ou Jackson street, which
suited, but thcv could not find tnc owner; and
then again t heoivnor of the building now occupied
offered to alter mid fix it up, but no conclusion
was reached. There Is scarcely a doubt, how
ever. Unit the ofileo will bo removed, mid that
In a few days, as it Is not believed that the pres
ent quarters can be made to servo tbe Agent's
The janitors of the building are at logger
heads, and It is about a few spittoons. One is a
rclorincr, and the other is not, and one is In
dustrious, mid the other the reverse. The lat
ter has charge of the upper rooms of the build
ing, ami a few days ago ho removed the dirty
spittoons to the lower floor for Ids associate to
wash, mid caused a requisition to bo sent to the
Board for new ones, which was filled. When
the new* ones arrived they fell into tho hands of
tlie industrious janitor, and he has distributed
them on his floor, uml tho other fellow Is
wrathy, because he sees no way of getting
around washing the old spittoons which ho dis
carded. and there is trouble ahead. It has been
suggested In this connection that the dispute
should ho laid before the Board Monday, and bo
made the subject of discussion. Members have
spoken bv the hour upon less grave questions,
uml siitho of them will he found equal to the
task in this ease.
Thu Hospital Committee has its hands full
just now, and if halt the reports afloat be true it
should not long defer calling the attention of
the public to the murages being perpetrated at
the Institution under Sts direction mid control.
The County Hospital Is practically In the hands
of a Medical Board, and this Board Is little else
than the .(acuity of a certain medical college,
and coupling these facts with the reports cur
rent, something ought to no done. It is said
that the institution now contains about thirty
venereal patients, who have been run lu for the
bcnellt ot tlie pupils of the college in question,
and, furthermore, that the custom urevails
among the physicians there to crowd In women,
who are on the eve of confinement, even to lock
them up, simply that they may lie made instru
ments in the education of the college stu
dents. One case of the latter nature
came to tho Waroeu’s notice, it Is re
ported, a few days ago. where a woman
from Ohio was rushed in during Ids absence to
remain three months, but she was speedily dis
missed by him. Another case is reported—to
illustrate the-abuses being practiced there for
the benefit of tho college in question—where
one of me lylng-lu-pailcnts, who had not vet
been delivered, was. taken from her
want by one of the members of the
“.Medlsul Board,” and stripped naked, for
the bcnellt of a class of this College, and sub
jected to a public examination which was sim
ply revolting. Another ease, fully illustrating
how Hie institution Is being controlled bv the
“ Board,” Is told, wherein u nurse Insisted 'upon
certain convalescent patients being discharged,
u few days ago, mid the doctors would not dis
charge them until forced to by the Warden,
because,tbelr presence was desi;cd there for the
bcnellt of tho college-students. Other cases
might bo cited, but these arc sutlkieut to show*
that the County Hospital Is not what it
ought to be even now, though under the new
management It has been improved In every do-'
tall about 500 percent; mid it never tan bo what
It ought to bo as long as It is run bv a Medical
Board, uml tills Board by a college. Thu Board
has to pass upon the uambslbtllty of patients,
and the records show that they have been very
lax In their duties, and careless at tlie iieople's
interest In the matter. I’allunts have been ad
mitted from other Stales, and patients who are
nut 111 subjects for treatment at any charitable
institution. The whole subject needs a thor
ough investigation, uml the Hospital Committee
should move in the matlcK The Warden should
be given more power and the Medical Board less,
ami, If the reports current prove true, no time
should he spm cd to entirely separate the insti
tution from the direct or Inulreet control of out
side persons or Interests. Thousands noun
thousands of dollars would Do thus saved to
the county every year.

with clasped bunds, swore eternal tldultlv and

thieves, bulled them at the muzzle ol a revolver,
made them get Inside the carriage, mut then
drove them Iu the West Madlsou-Hireci Station

the glass door, and ordered him back. Thu
thieves took the money-drawer and ran out,
the clerk pursuing them until they turned into

three shots at him. The drawer contained one
$lO hill, seven $5 hills, two $3 hills, mid
about SSO m silver. Hie empty drawer
and a few pennies were found In the alloy. The
thieves were disguised with silk handkerchiefs

Atlesperulo uttemptnt murder was madont
6:45 lust evening by n former engineer ou the
Northwestern Railroad, named Thomas Ellis.
The location was lh« yard of the Company, or
more precisely, along the trucks under
the Erlc-strcet viaduct. The yard
master, David O’Neil, was busily
engaged In attending to the switching and mak
ing up of trains, and a number of other employes
of tho road were in the Immediate vicinity.
O’Nell noticed Ellis, but was so busy at the
moment that he fussed him without speaking,
and, just as ho had passed, Ellis whipped out u
revolver and fired two shuts In quick succession.
O’Neil turned to grapple with him, but fell
with tho pain of a shot that hud takeu cllcct In
his back. Conductor Frank Osgood was within
a few feet ol the assassin, and Just as he was
preparing to llro a third time ho ran forward
ami wrenched the weapon from Ellis,
who, with an oath, and u blow
nt Osgood’s head, then took to his
heels. The bystanders could not at the moment
comprehend wlmt had occurred, and the assas
sin was a hulf-Uur.cn rods away beture any of
them thought of pursuing him. Kills ran hi a
northwesterly direction out of the yard, and
went out upon Ilalsted street. The chase was,
of course, a fruitless one, and was soon given
O’Neil was carried to his home, No. 208 North
Dcsplalnos street, uml was there attended by
several physicians, chief of whom was Dr.
Islmm. It was found that one bullet had pcnc*
trated tho lung, having entered a few inches
below tba right shoulder blade,— a wound that
is sold to be of n very danger
ous character. Tho patient in a stout,
rugged man, however, mid may bo
able to pull through. The result depends al
most entirely upon the inflammation that will
set In; the hemorrhage Is very slight, mid 11 ap
pears that clotted blood has stunned up ail
further hemorrhage. All efforts to Ibid tho
bullet by probing proved unsuccessful.
The cause of the attempted assassination is a
mystery. Not a word was passed Imfweern
them. O’Neil says lie had not seen him for
four months, mid dint no harsh words had ever
passed between (hem. Both men were burn uml
brought up together in the same neighborhood,
mid have been employed on the road
for years. Ellis was engineer on a
switch-engine, mid O’Neil allows that
in his position ho was frequently
obliged to stir up the engineers. No feud ever
resulted from these petty quarreling*. It was
reported that Ellis had heen discharged through
O’Neil’s influence some four months ago, but
this O’Neil and Train-Dispatcher McCabe deny.
Ellis resigned his place of his own free will. It
Is probable, however, that EIHs entertained
harsh feelings for some such cause.
The detectives mid police went to work dili
gently, ami found that In the carlv part of the
evening Ellis had frequently doubled on Ids
tracks, and had taken bis meal ns usual at Ids
hoarding-house. opposite (lie lire engine-house,
on Chicago avenue. From Ids actions the de
tectives ut once surmised that ho had been
preparing fur the shouting, mid had set no
die pins to prove nn nlihlfu ease he was sus
pected for the assassination, and surely enough
wiiun ha was arrested lust ttlcld- he denied nil
knowledge of the affair, and hinted that ho
could readllv prove Ids whereabouts. Ills
scheme will hardly work, however, for O’Neil
himself Is positive it was ho who llrcd the shut,
mid so arc Conductor Osgood, Edward MeGue,
flagman, Peter Nolan, switchman, mid several
others who were actual witnesses of the shoot
The wounded man is about B 3 years of age,
mid lives with ids mother ami family. The
wnnld-he assassin Is about tho same ace, of me
dium height, stout build, black hair, mustache,
ami email goatee, mid of a swarthy, sinister ex
pression. At u lute hour last night O'Neil was
progressing fulrlv, and the physicians entertain
ed hopes lor recovery.

A Inrgely-iittonoed meeting ol tho Republic
ans of tho Thirteenth Ward was held Wedncs
day evening at Deux Hall, on West Lake street,
near Robey. Mr. Daggett occupied tho chair.
Eloquent speeches were inaild by Messrs. J. A.
Roche, Charles Dallas, L. W. Perce, W. Bishop,
B. G. GUI, Aid. Seaton, B. J. Davis, and R. C.
Meyers, warmly Indorsing the course of Aid.
Thompson for the careful manner in which bo
has looked after the interests of the city, ills
vote was always found on tho side of economy.
The dilToreut speakers knew It was fashionable
to pitch Into (he Aldermen for not getting this,
that, and the other; hut when there Is no
money tu the Treasury, and none can
be borrowed, bow are things to bo ob
tulnedl Thu gentlemen well knew* that more
sewerage and other improvements was urgently
needed, but the people must gut along without
them until tho city is in a belter llnanclnl
condition. It would never do to pile up more
debt. Additional debt meant additional tuxa
tion, and every one knows that at the present
ti ne tuxes ate sulllctuntly elevated,—ln (act. so
much so that almost evciybudy is complaining.
The speakers urged the Importance of electing
the strulgnt Republican ticket., Republican
government means an honest administration,
with amlucirontn expenditures and u lightening
of the burdens of taxation. Democratic rule
, means corruption, criminal recklessness, munic
ipal debauchery, and, in the long run, city
bankruptcy* At, tho conclusion of Use speeches,
the meeting adjourned.
In answer to a call, several members of tbu

The Seventeenth Want Republican Club held
n meeting last evening at No. 14b Chicago ave
nue, Mr. Joseph Santa in the chair. Mr. Sam
Appleton, candidate for Cttv Attorney, being
among thorn present, was called noon for n
speech, and be complied with tbe request.
Mr. M. A. Farwell, candidate for City Treas
urer, also made a few remarks on the necessity
of placing the best men in Hie party In nomina
tion fur'city olliccrs by the Republican partv.
Aid. Janssens then look the tloor. He said lie
hud eotno to the meeting to defend himself
against the charges of several persons that lie
had not acted fur the beslintcrests of the party.
He could not see whr such charges should bo
made. lie had always been a good Republican,
and olways would be. They should lake tutu
consideration that he Is representing award that
Is largely Democratic, mid he could therefore
not Ignore altogether the demands of the Dem
ocrats. If any one had anv questions to ask he
would wllllngiv answer them.
Mr. Robert Knlgliktyaiilcd to know why sev
eral bridge-tenders of Democratic proclivities
were recommended for positions bv the Alder
man, when many Republicans could have been
found willing to take the positions, and why he
had secured a position for a man living In the
Fifteenth Ward In Hie County Clerk’s olflce, when
it was his (iutv to secure Hie position for a man
from his own'ward.
Mr. Janssens replied that the two bridge-tend
ers who were removed were Irishmen, ami bo
bad to recommend Irishmen in tbetr places. He
could not have secured Hie appointment for Re
publicans, ami for this reason Hie places were
given to Democrats. As regards Hie position
he secured far a man in Hie Countv Clerk’s
utllce not living in his own wan), Hie only ex
cuse ho had to make was that he was not mvnro
at tiie (into that the man did not live In his
ward. After the man had been appointed In*

Several other matters of the same sort wore
brought up, when Mr. Peterson rose mid said
Hint Hie Club should not inquire ns to what Mr.
Janssens had done, but whether he was an avail
able candidate for rc-cleetlon. Thu question
was whether ho was morally mid intellectually
qualified for the position or not. They should
simply discuss (ho question who was best fitted
fur Hie position
Aid. Janssens said that ho had tried to do his
dulv towards Hie taxpayers. If the people of
tho ward were not satisfied wit h him, or did not
want Him again, ho was perfectly willing to step
down uml out.
The Chairman thought the question of nomi
nating an Alderman should he left for a future
time, ami, in tho meanwhile, the various candi
dates could announce t hemselvcs. Tho mooting
coincided with the Chairman.
- Mr. \V. T. Underwood, Michael Petrie, and
Peter Bnshwah, ull candidates for tho position
of Cttv Clerk, then entertained the meeting with
eloquent mid patriotic speeches, after which au
adjournment was had.

that our Republican friends should concede to us
tho nomination of a Democrat (or Alderman, Inas

Mr. Richard Walsh, of tho wholesale house of
W. J. ljuao A Co., was united In marriage last
evening with Mbs Mamie Gillespie, second
daughter of Mr. Arthur Gillespie, of this city.
The ceremony was performed by tho Rev.
Father O'Neil, at St. Patrick's Church, corner
of Desplalnes and Adams streets, and was wit
nessed by a large number of mends of tho
young couple. Tho bride was elegantly attired,
’ami, .as the ladles wouhl sav, “looked very
sweet.” Mr. and Mrs. Walsh took the U o'clock
train for St. Louis, where they will remain fur
about a week, mid then return and be “at
home” to their friends.
Tlic revival services at the First Congrega
tional Church last night were attended by more
people than any previous services ot the .week.
The exercises were begun with the singing of
the hymn which begins: “I will guide thee
with Mine eye." Ur. Goodwin then read the re
quests fur prayers and Prof. Hopkins invoked
the divine blessing. "Whom have 1, Lord, In
Heaven but Tbcol" was then sung by thd con
gregation, uiul Mr. Stebblns followed with a
very beautiful hymn: "One by one ttiey’ro
gathering home." Mr. Pentecost announced
that the services of to-night would close the
week, and that the Sunday-night services would
close Ihe series of meetings attho First Church.
Mr. Slubhtns then sung, "I will sing of my Ho
demucr." the choir slugmg the chorus.
The Huv. Mr. Pentecost then read Mark, V.,
Sll: " lie not afraid, oulv believe." If It were
not for faith, said the speaker, the countrv,
commercially, politically, and sociably
would bo a total wreck. Nothing con
ceivable was more dark and terrible
tlmu the blotting out of faith from our relations
to uod. The world wss full of fear. People
when sick were afraid—afraid when discouraged
mid troubled. The antidote for that fear was
belief. Persons should believe In God, that Hu
was the Creator and Providence; that Ho was
the furnisher of gur dally bread. Thu
world should also remember that God
would puuUh * slit, and that He had
also, as a result of his love, devised
a way by which Ho could Insure the salvation of
sinners. The world's hope of salvation should
bo founded in the belief that it was not ob
tained by the winking at slu, but through it
perfect process devised by God. All persous
should accept God's views of the subject.
This made sin a very serious subject*
A great mistake was made by
people who believed simply from
personal observation. Instead of upon ibis
personality,, persons should base their belioX
noon the testimony of God's word,—not from
voguo human speculations. All should believe
Mint they wore sinners, because Qod said ihnt
nil had sinned. All should believe thnt.Tcsus
Christ was the Son of God. Strenuous it might
seem, there were largo numbers of men who
nightly seld that (her believed (hat Jesus
Christ lived, but that Ho was only n
Jew,—Mint ho lived, died, and was burled, and
was slmplv a Jew. Alt should believe the testi
mony or God. If (lint was (rue, we were saved
If we accented Christ. The Blblo should be be
lieved because It gave a complete and perfect
analysis of our lives, and so perfectly supplied
those things which so exactly met mtr needs.
Nobody who did not accept Christ Imd
nnv hope. Many trials bad been made, but
nothing had as vet been found that would (111

The facts of history set forth In the tllble
were Just as authentic ns nuy facts connected
with the history of the Uomnu Umpire. Many
had tried to disprove the historical statements
of thuNowTc6tnmcnt,buithcyhad failed mid hud
been obliged to acknowledge their Inability.
The speaker closed with an admonition to be
lieve and tear not, and read n part of the twen
tieth verse of Mic twentieth chapter of the Sec
ond Book of Chronicles: “ Dcliove In the Lord
vourOod, so shall vo ho established; believe
Ills prophets, so shall ye prosper."
After the close of the service, the usual num
ber of porsuus remained for counsel and ad
A petition Is being circulated asking the
Board of Trustees to call an election to decide
whether tho form of Government shall bo
changed to a village organization or continue
under tho present town charter. The friends
of the village organization claim that the ex
pense of running tho town under that form wilt

TO the Editor nf The Tribune.
Lake Forest, Feb. 17.—Sumo of the refiners
hare published tlio following advertisement la
some of the Western as well as thu Eastern
We hereby Inform (bo pnbtle that our refined
sugars ennsiot rolei.t of thu product of raw sugars
rctlncd. Neither glucose, muriate or tin, muriatic
acid, nor any other siibsUnco whatever is mixed
with them. Out,sugars and sirups are absolutely
unadullcred. *"•'
The reader will observe that this advertise*
meat Is In tiic present tense,—that now, at tlio
present time, they claim that these adulterants
arc not used. Tlio advertisers do not deny that
they hai previously mode use of them. Wo can
put no other construction on their language
than an admission that they had done so.'
Wo are nut, however, compelled to depend on
negative evidence. .Wo have the positive ad*
mission of Mr. Uavemoyur that tin had been
used by himself. When ho appeared before
the Congressional Investigating Committee ho
says, “About live'years ago wo used tin,”
evidently meaning to Imply that ho did
not now. Bub I affirm that ho not
only used It five years ago, but continued
to use it till the commencement of the late ex*
cltcmont on tlio subject, of which there Is
abundant proof. Furthermore, I believe that
it Is still used, perhaps in lessor quantities, mid
with greater care to conceal it from tiie chem
ist’s eye. When the reporter called on Have*
major Brothers they “declined to state whether
they used glucocs or other foreign substances
In their sugars. 1 * Silence gives consent, mid,
inasmuch ns they could not deny the fact, tlio
only inference that can ho drawn is that they
did adulterate.
But is It true, ns stated In the above adver
tisement. that all adulteration and use of
chemicals has been given up I Arc none of
(Item now to bo found in the refinery! Have
they all-been returned to tlio druggists’ shelves!
Are our sugars now os free from chemicals as
they were forty years ago! I deny it. It is not
possible for them to abandon all these adulter
ants and sell sugar at present prices without
speedily being made bankrupts, unless they de
fraud tlio Government, on the score of duties,
out of many more millions tbau they hereto
fore have done.
But let us consider these adulterants seriatim.
Xdo not believe that they uso tin as freely ami
carelessly ns they have done. Probably no more
than the? can neutralize so as to conceal Itfrom
the eve of the chemist. But the fact that the
chemist cannot And it does not prove that It has
not been there, nnd if It has been, Us pernicious
cilects will bo manifested In the impaired health
of the consumer, ’though the chemist should
pronounce it pure.
But how Is it with glucose! Has that been
abandoned I Certainty not for conscience sake,
for the history of thu doings of mauv of thu re
finers for the last few years proves that con
science Is a scarce commodity In those quarters.
But have they found it for their pecuniary In
terests to do so? Nut if they can conceal it
from the skill of the scientist, and I think tiicy
can, for It has lately been discovered that glu
cose can bo polarized by the use of dextrine so
as to make It appear like cane-sugar. That be
ing the case, we may most reasonably expect
that glucose has not .in fact become h thing of
the past. But I have some positive proof of Us
present use. A correspondent writing me latclv
said that In conversation .with one of the em
ployes in a refinery, ho admitted that it was still
used. In proof of thu detrimental effects of
most of U let me quote from a correspondent of
the Now York MfihodM. ilc says;
There is one other fact in connection with the
manufacture of starch syrup, or glucose, that the
unsuspecting consumer should know, and It is
this: There Is a largo amount of sulphuric weld put
ou the market by manufacturers of chemicals at a
low price, because of its Impurity. This Is the
kind purchased by starch-simp manufacturers,
which enables them In turn tu sell a very cheap
mlulteruut. But there Is yet another and more
stunting fact to mentiou, namely: that & large
percentage of arsenic is frequently hold in com
bination by the crude sulphur from which tho
aforesaid ’cheap acid is l made, nnd which is not
eliminated In the processor manufacture. Hence
the poisonous effects that must inevitably follow
tho consumption of starch-sirup thus manufactured.
Tu demonstrate thu truth of this insertion, wo have
to say that an eminent physician of this city (Now
York) informed us that within a few months he
had been called in attendnijce upon three eases
having oil the symptoms nf arsenical poisoning.
Upon Investigation, it was found they had all been
eating freely of giucoscd table sirup.
Such being tho character nnd olfect of much
of thu glucose that is made, it must be apparent
to every person that there Is danger attending
anything adulterated with It. As Urn sirups
contain a much larger proportion of it than mo
sugars, thu use of thu former is attended with
fur greater dancer than thu latter. Therefore,
everyone who regards tlio health of bU family
will wholly cschuw the entire class of commer
cial sirups, for ho cun have no assurance of Hie
purity ot any of them. If lie is fund ot sirup,
let it be a domestic product made from Now
Orleans plantation sugar if lie can obtain it,
which is very doubtful. If not, mako It of thu
hard cut or crushed loaf-sugar, os these arc
much less objectionable than any of the soft
cotleo or granulated sugars. This makes a clear,
transparent, and delicious sirup.
If our sugars, and especially our sirups, aro
poisoned bv so much adulteration, what shall po
said of tho candles which uro monuloctured by
thu ton in every city, uml found in almost every
household! Nearly nil of them are adulterated
with glucose, uml soma are almost wholly mudo
of shut article. Many of them are made with
terra alba, and nearly all of them poisoned with
fumy colorings. If (he sugar is destructive of
health uml life, how much more so the candles 1
Notwithstanding all that ima been written uml
published concerning them, parents continue to
buy nud give lliem to tiieir clnldtou almost as

being a iifu-destroyer, as they are., When we
