election to carry it. The law Buys: "The
ballots, in so far as they relate to this net,
Khali be in the following form : 'For the
531,712 appropriation;' and when so voted
shall count in favor of this net ; but if can
celled with ink or pencil, it shall be count
ed against this act." The law then pro
vides that the votes shall be counted and
declared by the same officers, who count
and declare the votes for presidential elec
tors. If it stopped here the inference
would be irresistible that to carry the state
house appropriation it must receive a ma
jority of all the votes cast for presidential
electors; but away down at the foot of the
section another clause is added : "But if a
majority of the votes shall be 'against the
$.31,712 appropriation.' then it shall be de
feated," Jec. The law defines what votes
shall be counted "for" the appropriation,
and what votes to wit, such as have been
"cancelled" against it. The intention of
the framers of the law seems thus manifest
to have been to carry it by a simple major
ity of the votes actually cast on the subject
in its favor, though such vote may fall far
short of a majority of all the votes cast at
the November election.
Individually we care nothing about the
distinction, for we think the appropriation
ought to be voted anyhow ; but it may ie

understand the changed conditions under

Grand Rihoe, Oct. 2. With hardly any
effort, and threatening skies, an unexpected
ly large and enthusiastic Democratic crowd
was gathered last evening in this village, the
number present being about 2,0o0, of whom
many were ladies. The Streator delegation
consisted of five car-loads, including the
Cleveland & Hendricks Club of that city with
2U0 carrying lamps, headed by St. Patrick's
Band, a fine musical organization of all "solid
Democrats." No less noteworthy than the
Streator' Club was that of Grand Kidge, of
which Lacey Hibbs is captain and II. White
ball and Clark Moss are lieutenants. They
have a crack drum corps and skilled f.fer, and
their "marching band'' musters 100, with
white oil cloth helmet, white cape with light
blue collar, red leggins and each beaing a
torch and small flag.
The train arrangements brought the Otta
wa Club, 200 strong, headed by McDonald's
fine drum corps, last upon the scene. They
were formally received by the other clubs
and awarded the post of honor, in front.

ed itself from the square in fruit of the de
pot and marching through the principal treot
moved to the stand erected in the western li
mits of the town.
The stand reached and the speakers seat
ed, Ransom Palmer, Ksq., president of the
local club, called the meeting to order, and
then gave the audience a most agreeable sur
prise by introducing the famous Bart els Glee
Club, who had hitherto kept in the back
ground, and who now gave a few of their po
pular songs, which were boisterously encored
and cheered to the echo.
The first speaker introduced was Willard
Gentleman, Ksq., whose clear logic, keen in
vective, delicate sarcasm and yet courteous
treatment of his opponents had a fine effect.
Ben. F. Lincoln, Esq., followed, dealing in tin
answerable argument based on historical
facts, sparing no culprit high or low, and not
omitting an admirable reference to our too
much neglected local ticket. M. T. Moloney,
Esq., came next, beginning humorously, but
soon warming up to his work and pouring
hot shot into the enemy's ranks. He was in
good voice and made an eloquent speech,
leaving a splendid impression with many
who had previously been prejudiced against
him without knowing the mental qualities of
the man. Senator Duncan and G. W. W.
Blake were next successively introduced, but
both being painfully hoarse from previous
speaking for many night in succession, were
excused after a few remarks and loudly cheer,
ed. The last speaker was Dr. Leroy, of Strea
tor, who made a fine address, but was unable
to do justice to the subject en account of the
lateness of the hour.
The meeting adjourned about 11 o'clock
and everything ha 1 passed off so successful
ly and pleasantly that the Ottawa boys were
poorly prepared for ihe disappointment that
awaited them on being escorted back to the
depot, from being informed that the engine
that wag to take ihemback had become disa
bled at Streator, had to be repaired, and
would not be along for at least a couple of j
hours. The boys, however, made the best
of the situation, and what with songs, stories,
&c., managed to kill the time pleasantly and
extract a good deal of fun out of it. B.
The I'uor tlnur, the Grave anil Vlrtory.
Ashmofe, Illinois. The Citizm publishes
the following facts: Abram Beaver, an inmate
cf the Coles county, 111., poorbouse, certifies
that he suffered several years with rheumat
ism, so that he could not labor, and finally,
became so poor and proetrate he was sent to
the puoi house. The il.ysiciaus there jpve
him up and said lie must die, Mit, as a last
chance, they tried St. Jacobs Oil. A few ap
plications gave relief, and by its continued
use he was enabled to leave his bed. To this
is added the certificate of the Superintend
ent to the truth of the statement and to his
belief that the man's life was saved by the j
use of the great remedy. j
Commenting upon the foregoing, the C..c-i
says, editorially, as follows: ' e are pleased
to be able to te-tify to the correctness of the
above. s the cae came directly under our
notice. Any ene desiring further information
can correspond with this office."
Everybody of ordinary intelligence In Il
linois knows who James F. Joy is. He is
the great Detroit railroad king, for years
the president of the Michigan Centrtd rail
road and now president of the Wabash sys
tem. Mr. Joy is not only the equal of Win
derbiltor Jay Gould as n railroad king, but
he enjoys the further distinction, which is
not always awarded to the others, of being
a rigidly upright, honorable man. The
Hev. Henry Ward Iieecher, ex-U. S. sena
tor Ihddwin, of Michigan and now presi
dent of the Second National Bunk In De
troit, of which Mr. Joy is a director, and
William C. Thompson, who was twice
elected mayor of Detroit by the largest Re
publican majority ever given in that city,
unite in a statement, published in the New
York IhnM of last Saturday, that on dif
ferent occasions, to each separately, Mr.
James F. Joy made the following state,
meut :
lie was in Washington during the winter
of lsiSU-70 ia the interest of the Leaven
worth, Lawrence &i Galveston railroad.
The road had been given a large land grant,
the most valuable part of which'was claim
ed to be covered by a prior grant by treaty
to the Great and Little oage Indians. A
house committee of investigation was to
be appointed to inquire into this. Mr. Joy
was coufident of the legal rights of his com
pany as against this claim. He sent word
to Mr. Blaine, asking him to appoint on
the committee one lawyer of high reputa
tion. He did not care whether the man
was a democrat or a republican. Mr. Blaine
made no promise at the time, but the next
day an intimate friend of his came to Mr
Jov and said to him that if he, Mr. Joy,
would take from Mr. Blaine $25,000 in the
bonds of the Little Rck & Fort Smith rail
road at par, the speaker would make up
the committee as far as posssble just us
Mr. Joy wished it to be made up. Mr. Joy
said that he was so confident oi the merits
of his case that even if he had been dis
posed to make the bargain the price was
entirely too high for the service to be ren
dered. He declined the proposition.
Mr. Joy, who is now understood to be a
supporter of Blaine, has been challenged
to deny this statement but remains mum.
Beecher, Baldwin and Thompson, all hith
erto ardent Republicans, are now 'vigorous
supporters of Clevelaud, as is also Don M.
Dickinson, another distinguished Detroit
lawyer, hitherto a Republican, but who is
unable to go Blaine after hearing Mr. Joy's
Blaine Caught in Another Shameful Lie!
In connection with the labor troubles in
the Hocking Valley, Ohio, where about
8,000 miners are resisting to the verge of
starvation a shameful attempt to compel
them to work for pauper wages, the state
ment had frequently been made that one
of the principal owners of the Hocking
Valley Coal and Iron Monopoly was James
G. Blaine. To set the matter at rest, Mr.
II. S. Bundy, an Ohio Republican, wrote
Mr. Blaine, asking about his interest in the
mines. Mr. Blaine answered in a letter
dated ut Bar Harbor, July 22, 1884, In
j which he declared :
I am not, and never have been, the own
er of coal lands or iron lands, or lands of
any character whatever, in the Hocking
Valley, or in any part of Ohio. Nor have
I at an' time owned a share of stock in
any coal, iron or land company in the state
of Ohio.
This, it will be seen, is a denial by Blaine
as emphatic and sweeping ns language can
make it. He denies that he ever at any
time owned any land of any kind or any
stock in any coal, iron or land company in
the state ot Ohio.
And now comes Mr. J. Henry Brooks,
the trustee of whom the Hocking Valley
lands were purchased by the present mon
opoly that owns them and has erected upon
them the famous Hope Furnace and is run
ning all the mines, and by letters, papers,
receipts and contracts in his possession
shows that in May, 1882, Mr. Blaine on the
payment of $30,000, became the positive
and indisputable owner of one-fifth of that
vast property and is such to this day. The
documents furnished by Mr. Brooks are as
indisputable as court records, and as im
movably as a Supreme Court decision con
vict Blaine by his own correspondence of
another most shameful lie.

Irish butter seems to be the best. At the

Calcutta, it was awarded a diploma and

next in merit was a sample of American oleo
margarine, but it was thrown out by the jud
