After the third ballot Whitney withdrew in
favor of Iloldiidge. Whinny had waxed
warm; and waxing warm tlumra shoe, Hew oil'
the tangent "lost his grip," as the boys say.
It seems there had been a sharp contest in
their town between Howen and Whitney for
the delegates, Whitney coining out ahead.
Seeing, however, that the nomination of How
en was inevitable, his many wrongs could keep
silent no longer; so he advised his friends to
Vote for Holdridge, and defeat his opponent's
scheme of "fraud and corruption" the "ho
cus pocus" which is making this nomination.
After a few howls and groans for Whitney,
Francis Houcu was nominated.
On motion of Hull the old central commit
tee was re appointed.
There was no further business before the
convention, but no adjournment could be had
till Hon. H. C. Cook, who had entered the
room, had spoken. He said il. gave him infi
nite pleasure to meet again so many of his old
compatriots comrades of the grand old times
when the parly was born and fought its great
est battles. Hut he did not mean to make a
speech then but would reserve that till a fu
ture time in the campaign. He had heen in
Texas this spring, however, and saw that it
was not safe to intrust the government to such
u people. He had had his temper sorely tried
by them while there, and had seen most horri
ble injustice dealt out to the colored man.
Ilis word of council was: you can't afford to
lose the members of the legislature who elect a
senator. The representatives and congress
man be elected. And much more in a
similar vein.
Hon. L. H. Crooker was called for and said
that two years ago, when nominated, lie was
out of town and had never thanked the con
vention for the honor done him then; they
will therefore please accept his thanks now as
double-barrelled, covering both the past and
present. lis wai a republican, he said, like
the Kcntuckian on a high old drunk, "all wool
ami a yard wide" certainly uynnl iriili .' lie
thought the present the culminating point of
the rebellion and the country never in a more
desperate strait than now. He was down on
the minority representation so hard to light
against and advised republicans to he straight
in the matter of giving each f their candi;
dates his 1 vote.
Howen and Lewis were called for but failed
to put in an appearance. So Koiiinson moved
to adjourn, which was earned.
(icorgc Dawson Coleman, the well known
Pennsylvania millionaire, owner of the Corn
wall iron ininet) mid furnaces in Lebanon coun
ty" of that state, died on .Monday ul bi ( oru
wall home near Lebanon, aged oi year-. Cole
man was born in Lebanon county, and was a
whig in politics ami subsequently a republi
can. He represented Lebanon county in the
state senate, and was also a prominent candi
date for state treasurer. President (.ran! fre
quently visited him at his home in I'or.inail,
anil at one time ollcred him the secretaryship
of the interior department. Mr. Coleman wjo
a member of the state board of charities, and
held important local trusts. The iron deposit
at Cornwall Is generally considered to be the
largest and most valuable in the I n bed Slates.
The La Salle Y. in reference to the ru
mor that the lion. Washington Hu-hncll in
tended to lie an independent candidate for con
gress in this district, says:
Hush, is a strongman, in or nut of otliee, and
on the stump is without au equal in the district.

wicked to do so, of course, and Hu.-hm.!! might

It of course remains one of iluwe inolubli
problems that are always coining up ia. 'lilies'.

1 The board crowded themselves in the council
! chamber of the city hall. Kvcry member re
sponded except Mr. Flaherty and Mr. Lauf, the
former being absent on duty connected with the
county asylum.
A In lire number of petitions were presented and
referred to the proper committees.
A dozen or more petitions and remonstrances
were submitted for and against the building ol 11
now court house and jail.
On motion of Mr. Howen, the entire subject
was uclerrcil nil l-riuay morning.
Supervisor Carey presented a petition asking
for further county aid in paying for the l.a Salle
bridge.
Supervisor Hrown, of Peru, created some mer
riment by leading the following resolution:

county, the hoard being in a languishing condi

The roll-call was dispensed with and the min
utes read, liie leik, for a joke, preleliued 10
read Brown's humorous resolution on the oyster
supper as a part of the regular proceedings. L n-
Jnlm Miller, of Freedom, objected and made
a very selisilile soceeii incicou 011 uieoysui:
being in the records, not In the members but
when the gciiileman discovered the hoax, he
' withdrew his remarks."
( I'l.aughliu, from Mrooklicld, from the commit
tee to settle with the county superintendent 01
schools, reported, showing that supt. Williams
had received A (Til 1, lu ir,5n.r.5S and had dis
bursed fci"i,:;i).Y. receipt since then and the bal
ance on hunu now 17.
The committee reeoiiiinei.ded that R. Williams
he allowed J'-JiM for services from March loth to
tune loth, ls;s; also for office expenses, includ
ing postage, advertising and oluee, el-Hi.
Note by Reporter: Our county court house,
said to he so commodious, is costing the people
l.7o per annum for rent, for want of room fori
tin county superintendent.
Tlie report was adopted.
The committee on claims and abatements re
commended a reduction ol .."iiw on the assess
ment of t'lias. Hruner, of l'cru, for double assess,
ment. After a spirited discussion between Brown,
Byer, Flaherty and others, the yeas and nays re
sulted 15 for and 1 against.
N. J. Host wick having been assessed .i!iki on
per-onal property in tlie towns of Wallace and
Freedom on the some property, the proper abate
ment was granted.
Lewis Sawyer, of Eagle, having been assessed
lifty-one head of cattle in Eagle, which belong
in Livingston county, was excused from taxes in
this county on said stock.
W. 11. Crydci , hav ing .1 grievance of i:il, the
same was duly adjusted.
Supervisor Miller picauiilrd a vciy interesting
paper relative to the Indian Creek bridge. The
board iu September, hud allowed the sum
of 4KI toward said hridgv, but the ncv had
never been drawn from the treasury. Tlie bridge
was built at (1 cost of -about '.00, but w as torn

.1. T. Hurke, of Ottawa, had a claim of the same
nature, but it was excused that, is, withdrawn
when ready.
The court house ipicstiou next came up and
was vigorously debated by Lynch, E.C.Lewis,
White and John Miller. We regret tint one
space and want of time prevent us from writing
out our full notes. The speeches were all good,
Mr. White alone opposing the proposed public
buildings. Miller was frequently applauded.
In tin. ..fUTliooIi the ill bate was 1 cslilued oil the
following resolution presented by Supervisor
Lynch :
Wiikkkas, The law reipiires the Hoard of Su-nei-yisoi-s
ul e .eli county to provide a suitable
court hou-e and jail mid all other buildings for
the business ol I lie enmity: and i uounced, in the Congregational church, with
.HlXrKut Jhe'Vesenmri Inms'e! about 1 00 pupil. The arrangements are some
and jail are entirely unsuitable, to the wants and 1 what primitive and incomplete as yet, but the
reouireiiieiit-. ot the county; therclore
I!Jti. That we lirmlv believe that our boiin-l
den duly inn).', the law- ivipiires us to take inline-,
diate steps towards erecting a la w court house :
and jail.
After a short debate the. resolution was rejected
by a vole of Hi to IM, upon which the board ad
journed toll o'clock to-anorrow.
It is understood that tbo scsion of tlie board
will lie continued next week, when the court
house question will again come up 011 the report
presented by tbe committee in July, and upon
which action was deferred until this session.
HOME MATTERS.

The lUs'i School
It seems our township trustees 11 ml some dilli
culty in disposing of the .0000 in bonds voted
them for the erection of a high school buildin.g
Though there is plenty of money anxiou: h seek
ing such Investment, the "capitalists" are fear
ful there may be some liiieh or trouble about
paying these bonds. Mr. Trustee Pickens, to
quiet such apprehensions, bus got E. F. Bull.
Esq., to give ail opinion on I lie subject, ill which
Mr. 1)., alter looking up the law of tlie case,
comes to the conclusion that unquestionably tlie
bonds are valid and binding.
Wliile giving lliis opinion, however, Mr. Hull
cannot forbear expressing his deep regret that

The Suburbs.
The city of Sandwich is erecting a $!W city
hall; and will collect city taxes this year to the
extravagant amount of $-JUK).
John Parr, of Rutland, while '-attending the
,.oUnty
fair last week, was son htruek. He is
culled Charles Augustus, and John is "doing as
well" as can be expected.
Lostant is happy at last. After multitudinous
disappointments, they at laol got (ieo. Woodford
to talk temperance to them for three days last
week.
The Streator Frn' J'rrn says the road into Deer
Park has been so repaired that it is now safe to
drive over it.
Lostant has 450 inhabitants, :?. business
houses, 'X hotels, i grain elevators, 2 lawyers, 3
doctors, 3 churches, vv.e.
Tonicu schools lu-ve lltli pupils.
Norman Killburii, of tills city, lectured 011 tem
perance at Sheridan last Sunday week.
The Xfi'n httn; Sheridan, says the contractors
have arrived at Sheridan to replace the wooden
railroad bridge i.t that place with an iron one.
Mendota is in another sipiubblc as to her mu
nicipal government. Sanford, the former clerk,
having resigned, the Mayor appointed W, V.
Whitniore Clerk, who took charge of the clerk's
books, Ac. Last week at the regular meeting
Whitmore culled the roll, but some of those pres
ent not recognizing the new clerk refused to an
swer to their names. Those who did answer
not coimtitu'hig a quorum, the Mayor declared
"no ((iioruiil present," the clerk picked up the
records and left the hall ; and, by and by, when
the aldermen discovered the situation, they too
slipped out one by one In a sheepish sort of a
way. The council denies the right of the Mayor
to appoint a clerk, and as neither will give hi, no

vidually, but it was too expensive to come to Ot
tawa at half fare, drill an hour at the fair, and go
home with a hundred dollars for their treasury.
S. F. (iury is going to talk greenbackisin to the
natives of Mendota on Monday next.
On Tuesday la.-t a locomotive of the Chicago A:
Padiieah U.K. was left in the Streator v arils to
make steam against the hour of her departure.
The "hostler" left the yard to call the engineer.
When both came back no locomotive w as to lie
seen. It had vanished. As the boys did not be
lieve very strongly in genii and Arabian Nights
enchantments, another engine was sent down the
road after the renegade. "No. 11" was found
about 5 miles (,ut, as far as her steam could drive
her. Carele.-siu ss had left the throttle open a
trifle, until sullicieiit steam was made to start
her. No damage was done.
