The close of the week (to the 2'2d Inst.) shows a decided revival of the war feeling in England. Gladstone In Parliament on Thursday admitted the failure of England's efforts to pacify the arrogant Muscovite. It is no secret that tlio Czar has entirely rejected the draft of an agreement which had been framed in London and sent to St. Petersburg for approval. The Czar In sists that there, can ho no settlement of the Afghan boundary that dues not give Pus hh Maruchak and the Zulfikar pass, the ate to Herat. The Timet says "it is more than a hitch in the negotiations; we are s -t back to February ng.'tln, tlie sitiiatioii lluvlng only changed to our disadvantage." Stocks have seriously declined, and the war preparations on both sides are procee din with lenewed vigor. The new I'nited States Minister Phelps formally presented his credentials and was introduced to the Queen on Wednesday, and has accepted an invitation to attend the Mayor's banquet June 3d, when doubt less he will address his first speech to English ears. A report on Thursday that the cholera li id broken out in England is ofliciully de nied. It has reappeared, however, at Mar sellles, und at several points in Spain. Kit I'M Kel.clli.in. The rebellion in northern Canada, so far us Kiel and his half-breeds are concerned, may be regarded as at an end. Kiel him self was captured on Saturday by three scouts w ithin a mile and a half of Batouche, and seemed to be completely broken in spirit. He denies that he was the instiga tor or chief of the uprising, but says it was concocted by prominent men in the Prince Albert settlement, who Invited him over from Montana. He is now either crazy or feigns madness, and seems harrowed with fear that lie will either be hanged or shot, though the Canadian government appears to be at a great loss to dispose of him. The Kngllsh part of the population Insist on his B military trial and execution, while the French Canadians threaten trouble if be is not lightly dealt with. His madness Is gen et ally belUved to be feigned, though it is rather expected that the end will bo his consignment to a lunatic asylum. The balf-breeds are surrendering in large num. ersto Middleton, and nil except the lead ers, on giving up their arms, are released nod sent home. West of Uatouche, however, and west and north of Hattleford, the attitude of the Indians is more threatening and serious than ever. The train captured by Pound maker's ban I", reported last week, w as more IniK)rtant than was then supposed. It In cluded 21 ox and 10 horse teams, and of the 20 odd teamsters taken prisoners the fate Is still unknown. The Indians are so elated by tills success, that Poundmaker and Great Heat 's bands have united and are said to muster l.'JOIflvell armed warriors, and other bands north of the Saskatchewan are understood to be ready to unite with them, having commenced plundering the settlers and all the posts of the Hudson Hay Company. Gen. Middleton, who Is at Prince Albert, has been ordered to proceed to Hattleford, and after concentrating all his forces there, to proceed without delay to crush the Indians. I.cUlutii re. Now that the senatorial squabble lias ended, the Illinois legislature seems dls posed to address Itself to the business of law making, end up its work speedily and adjourn, as there is no possibility of keep ing the members together over a week or two longer, no matter how pressing may be the necessity for their presence. Of course no serious legislative business could be attempted before Thursday, for although the senatorial squabble ended on Tuesday, it took all day Wednesday to eaablo the republicans to get over the " Kattenjtvnmer" of Tuesday night's Jubila tion. The first business to which both houses addressed themselves on resuming work wis sensibly and naturally the appropria tion bills, as little harm can result from the failure of all other legislation after the passage of these. Among the unusual Items already passed upon in the appropriations by the senate is one of $:1,000, inserted oa the motion of Senator Duncan, to pay Alexander Bruce $31,000 for claims arising out of the construction of the Copperas Creek dam ; another of 10,000 to be at the disposal of the state board of health in case C'aolera should make its appearance ; ami another of $100,000 to suppress pleura pneumonia, and to pay for cattle necessary to be killed In so doing. The senate on Wednesday passed Whit ing's bill, Imposing a tax of 3 per cent, on the gross earnings of all telegraph compa nies la the state ; and the house passed a bill for the appointment by each county where necessary, of commissioners for the gUppreaaloo of Canada thistles, to be paid by the townships in which such work Is found necessary. A resolution offered in the house on Tlnirmlnv to iidiourii sine die June 1 lth j was promptly voted down. Mlr'lliiiii'tt. In the appeal case of M t kin and Julia L'lier, the Chicago election conspirators Judges Harlan and Gresham were unable to agree, either as to the question of the Jurisdiction of the I'uited States district court or that of the proceedings on "In fr.rmntinn " The case now cues to the United States supreme court at Washing ton, where itj'will probably be argued In October. Meantime the defendants are required to renew their bail fr ?"0,0O0 each. The .steamship Isere sailed from Rouen. France, for New York on Thursday, hav- ing on board Uartholdl's statue of "Liberty Enlighteniiijr the World." Meantime 100,000 are still peeileil to c plete tlie pedestal in New York bay upon which the statue Is to be erected, and the country Is being actively plied with begging circulars to contribute the money. w In a (Ire at Cincinnati on Thursday sev enteen persons were killed either uy jum- nitiL' from uiiiicr storv windows or peri.-h- ing In the flumes. Many of the victims were women and girls, who were employed In u plinting oillco. The lumber region of northern Michigan Is being fearfully desolated by forest lues. At Oscado and Lakeside (in the vicinity of Muskegon) on Sunday, over 10,000,000 feet of lumber, worth $20 per 1,000 feet, was destroyed. All over Hrowu, Shawano and Oconto counties, west of Green Ray, fires are raging, and not only vast numbers of logs, trees, fences, A:c, are being destroyed, but many villages are being burned. Graff ville, McRride, Farwell, &c.,are among tlie villages desolated, and hundreds of fami lies are left without shelter. Ex-U. 3. Secretary of State Frederick T. Frellnghuysen died at his hoineat Newark, New Jersey, on the 20th inst., after a long and painful illness, brought on by overwork while at the head of the State Department under President Arthur. An Austrian quarryman was found in a freight car at Joliet on Wednesday morn ing with his nose and lips cut off and his to'iguo hanging by a few shreds of llesli. The man Is dying und the mutilation is supposed to bo tlie work of srtlkers. JUDICIAL ELECTION. The election of tlie three judges for the Sit la judicial circuit takes place one week from next Monday. Five candidates are In the field, to wit: Josiah McRoberts, George W. Stipp, and Charles Hlanchard, the present incumbents, and Hiram T. Gilbert, of this county, and Royal K. Ear lier, of Will. Of these candidates, two, to wit, McRoberts and lilanchard, are classed as republicans, and the others -Stipp, Gil bert and Rarber as democrats. The clas sification is subject to various modifications, but It Is not worth while to stop anil note them. Our readers will bear witness that the Fkkic Thadick has maintained throughout that in this election politics should be ig nored, and that tlie candidates should be tried alone by their merits. The office Is one with which politics should have no connection. A judge with a strong pollti cal bias could not help but allow it to have a pernicious Influence on his decisions In cases coming before him involving politi cal questions. The framers of our consti tution placed tills election In June, far away from the date of the ordinary politi cal elections, with the sole design of re moving it as far as possible from politics. Yet a cry comes to us from Joliet that the democrats, who are said to have three candidates, are striving to make the elec tion a political contest, aiming, witli a ma jority of 1000 against them, to elect their three candidates over the two republican candidates! The cry Is one ot "stop thief" purely, and is raised In furtherance of a scheme that is well known to have keen concocted In Joliet, prompted probably by and in imitation of the still hunt that was made so successful In the 31th representa tive district, to pass the word quietly among the republicans to vote "solid" for McRoberts and Rlanchard, and let the tie mm rats divide their votes between both de mocrats and republicans or vote for the three democratic candidates straight, the repul licans in either case having Immensely the advantage. Rut the "game" can not be made to work, at least in this county. It would hurt Rlan chard, who expects to get a good many democratic votes, while the republicans about here are so impressed with the idea we are unable to say on what grounds that Judge McRolierts was considerable of a mugwump during the last presidential contest, that they will certaluly not vote for him solely on political ground. The long and short of it Is, Gilbert and Rlan chard are personally popular here and w ill get a large vote without regard to party on purely personal grounds. The other can didates will come In for their share of the remaining votes on their merits. The vote at best promises to be light, though we hoje tlie people will sufficiently appreciate the importance of the election to give it more than their usual attention. As to our home candidates, In whom we confess we feel the deeper Interest, the iJttaita liqmbliean having taken occasion to pass a high eulog'.um upon Mr. Rlan chard and ignore Mr. Gilbert, we may be excused for saying In behalf of the latter that on the score of experience on the bench h has the advantage of Mr. Blan- chard, w hile on the score of thorough ed ucation, close appl'.catlan, hard stud, men tal force and vigor, he will not suffer, all must agree, by a comparison with any of his opponents, it is but justice to Mr. Gil bel t to say that the entire bar recognize: him as possessed of an exceptionally tine judicial mind, and no one acquainted with him makes the least question that ifelei ted he will make one of the best judges this circuit has ever bad. L0OAN WINS. The history of the culmination of the senatorial squabble In the Illinois legisla ture can be given In tew words. The dan apparently adopted by the Democrats last week to deprive the Republicans of the ad vantage they had gained by the trick of Weaver's election, by keeping the joint convention In continuous session so that Weaver could not be admitted to his seat, was abandoned on Friday, and Weaver, on motion of a Dcmwrat, admitted and sworn in. Tlie two parties tlieu agreed to a truce until Tuesday of this week, when a final effort should be made to end the squabble without further delay. Tuesday both parties were on hand to a man, the Republicans exultant and conn- lent in their assured majority of two on oint ballot, and the Democrats, in a minor ity of two, naturally depressed. Yet there was a faint hope that, on account of th persistant opposition several Republicm members had shown to their party nomi nee, that at least Logan might yet be de feated, and that tlie successful man, though not u Democrat, might owe his election to Democratic votes. Tho first ballot, how ever, dissipated all such hopes. Every Re publican vote was cast for Lcgan! 103 just enough to elect him, and although the Democrats offered to vote for Charles R. Farwell and one or two other Republicans, not a Logan vote could bo shaken, and finally the Democrats having concentrated their vote on Lambert Tree, the result was announced by Speaker Haines, declaring John A. Logan elected. It was folly to expect any other result. Sittig, upon whose opposition to Logan some reliance was placed, it Is to be remem bered had said a month ago when his vote alone was needed to elect Logan he should have it, and it was tolly to expect a weak man like Ruger, though elected as an inde pendent Republican from a strong Demo cratic district, to stand up alone against the united will of the party. The defeat of Logan, after the party (no matter by what means) hud secured an un questionable majority of two on joint ballot, was no more to be expected than would have been the defeat of Douglas in lNoS, after his memorable contest with Lincoln, for in the legislature that then re-elected him, the Democrats had but two majority on joint ballot, yet after the legislature met no serious effort was even thought of to defeat Douglas's election. The Democrats " fooled away " their on ly chance of success in the early sta.'es of the contest when the parties were still at a tieby failing to cast tlieir united vote for Morrison. He had been the choice of the party by an overwhelming majority; the vote showed that there whs no other Democrat In the state that stood so high in the confidence of the party, and the " kick ers" had no right to ask him to be with drawn until ho had uepeatedly secured the party's united vote. Then if he couldn't be elected it was right he should be w ith drawn; but even when too late in the day lie did get that united vote, and was then withdrawn, the sequel showed that no other Democrat could do better. At the same time it is folly for Demo crats to blame each other or reproach them selves on account of the unfortunate elec tion of Weaver in the 31th district. That was an accident that might just as easily have happened in the case of senator Griggs, who received by 250 votes in a dis trict of 8,000 votes, while Leeper, in a dis trict of tho same size, received oOO votes. All there is to say about Weaver, and through him the ultimate triumph of Lo gan, is that it was the result of an " exces sively mean, dishonest and dirty trick." It is true, as the Time suggests, "there was perhaps no excuse for the sleepy Inaction of the Thirty-fourth district Democrats, who allowed the enemy to steal the district In the face of a Democrat ma jority of over 2,000 votes; but the district was none the less stolen. It was not cap tured In fair fight, but obtained by process precisely similar, in every moral light to that which gives a burglar possession of a sleepy citizen's watch. General Logan goes back to his senatorial seat in Washington deeply marked with the infamy of this fraud for a fraud it was, and is, as Infam ous in its essence as any case of ballot-box stuffing that has appeared this year, here or elsewhere. The fact that the Thirty fourth district Democrats neglected to guard their stable door does not relieve those who stole the horse of the crime of robbery." Rut whatever stain the " fraud " may be upon lagan's escutcheon In the eyes of Democrats or honest men generally, It will be no reproach to him In the eyes of his party. On the contrary, all over tlie coun try his election will be hulled as a great personal victory, and It will give him such a pratige as cannot fall to raise him to great prominence lor the party leadership In the presidential contest of ISiW. But while there is rejoicing In the party at home as well as abroad over the result, and there Is even to be a big banquet and drunk this evening In Chicago on account of It, In view of the blotch referred to, It is not such a free, full, honest and hearty jubilation as would have " waked the ech oes" among the Democracy If Morrison had been elected. That vould have been a victory to beast of the first Democrat from Illinois sent to the United States Sen ate in 25 years, and he such a Democrat, too, upon whom It would have been no ie proach to let fall the mantel of Douglas or glorious old Dick Richardson. Though the Democrats of Illinois painted many a town red over the election of Cleveland, the red would have been almost deepened tocrim. son if Morrison had been elected, and tlie hue would have been made to cover the whole state! An Interesting suit was decided, lately in the United States Circuit Court at Cleveland. Two Chicago brokers sued a speculator of that city for $32,000, claimed to be due on pork and lard bought in May 1SsJ3, for August delivery. The produce was sold August 1, without Instructions, at a loss of $32,000. The brokers sued to re cover that amount. Ine speculator an swered that he had paid the firm $19,000, And that It was a gambling deal. The jury awarded him $22,000. DEATH OF OE0R0E C CAMPBELL. Though It had been ku wn to his many j friends here for several years that George C. Campbell was broken down In health, the news of his death fin Friday of last week came as a shock, tlie end not being supposed to be so near. His more serious illness commenced about four years ago in the form of a dyspepsia, manifestly caused by overwork, and though after spending a year or more in travel and recreation he seemed much Improved, on resuming work, the body was too weak to respond to thu mental strain upon it, and again suc cumbed. Geo. C. Campbell was born at Auburn, N. Y., May 3d, 1S33. In 13.) his parents moved to Illinois, and the years of his ear lier youth w ere spent in this state. He was sent back to New York to school, and at about the age of 20 graduated at Hamilton College. He adopted civil engineering us a profession, and was thus engaged until about 1858, when he returned to Illinois, and entered the office of Glover & Cook (Mr. Cook being ills uncle) as a law stu dent, and applied himself with such assi (tuity that in a little over a year he was ad mitted to the bar and in less than three years became a member of the firm, so widely known as that of Glover, Cook & Campbell. The firm was placed In charge of the law business of the Chicago tfc Rock Island railroad and other roads in this vi cinity, and Mr. Campbell developed such proficiency in this branch of the business) that in 180!) he was appointed Solicitor General for the C. R. I. & P. Railroad, a position which he held four or tive years, holding a like position, during part of the time, n tlie Fort Wayne road, taking up his residence meantime in Chicago. While the pay was princely, however, the work was dangerously onerous and on the retirement of Judge Lawrence from the bench, in 1874, Mr. Campbell gave up his railroad positions and the law firm of Law-, rence, Winston & Campbell was formed. In tlie following year Mr. Winston with drew from the tirm and a son of Judge Lawrence taking his place, the firm name became Lawrence, Campbell & Lawrence and continued so uutil the death of Judge Lawrence, In 1882, when the firm became Campbell & Lawrence and so remained. About 1808 Mr. Campbell was married to Julia, only daughter of lion. J. O. Glo ver, and she survives him with two daugh ters, now young ladles. Mr. Campbell was a man of warm feel ings, strong attachments and true and ear nest in his friendships. In spite of his great personal popularity, however, and the possession of all the ele ments of success in that direction, he never seemed to have any taste or inclination for politics. Though decided enough in his views, in spito of his readiness, fluency and sprlghtliness as a speaker, we have no re- collection of ever hearing him make a po- litical speech. He was a lawyer, whose soul was absorbed In his profession, and to whom, at his high standard, it was politics religion all to him he needeu to ht him for good citizenship here and for a meet Inheritance in the world to come. The year 185 promises to be a nota ble for a general shortness of the wheat crop throughout the country, as 1884 was for its general abundance. Of the outlook in Illinois we have spoken heretofote. Re ports gathered at Topeka from 35 counties in western Iowa, 40 couuties in eastern Ne braska, 50 counties in western Missouri, and (18 counties In Kansas, which comprise a solid territory of 400 miles north and south, and 300 miles east and west, and which embraces the larger portion of the wheat belt of the west, and numbers 205 counties In all, show that the wheat pros pect in the counties of Iowa and Missouri is GO per cent. lelow the crop of last year, in Nebraska 60 per cent., and in Kansas 58 per cent, below. The Canadians are debating what they shall do w ith Riel, the rebel, now that they have captured him. The eeneral dlsposi tion is that thev should mane a better use of him than we made of Jeff Davis. Chi ciujo Journal. The republicans were afraid to hang Jeff Davis because the same treasonable dot-trine on which he acted was preached by Wendell PhlUips, Ranks, ami half the republican leaders of the day, and the same law that would have hanged Jeff Davis would have hanged the rest of them. But Riel expects to escape by the insanity dodge, and many a republican leader, about 18CS, would have felt relieved If the same plea could have been put tn for Jeff Davis. The Supreme Court of Missouri decides that a rule by a achool teacher governing the conduct of scholars on their way to and from school In such matters as are proper subjects of government on the school grounds Is a reasonable' rule and may pro perly be InTorced by the ordinary punish ment. The case before it was where the infraction had occured miles from the school house. Such u construction of the school laws of this state would be decided ly erroneous. The teacher Is, strictly speak Ing, In loto pa rent is only whilo the pupils are under his jurisdiction, which ceases when they have left the school yard. lie cannot punish them for offences commit ted near their homes. That is the parent's duty. Cor Dowd.vi.i.. The Pekln Time has the following: Hon. W. T. Do wham,, editor of the Pe oria Ikmoernt, will probably be appointed consul to Klo Janeiro. He deserves recog nition at the hands of the administration, for during the many years of defeat the deiiKKTatic party passed through, he was a stauncu advocate ot Its principles and worked for the party with all the strength that was in him. We hope he will be ap pointed. He is well fitted for the place, lie has been the kind of a democratic edi tor that never bolts the ticket. Rio is an important point and a consul ate there should rank next in importance to Liverpool and London. At least we hope nothing of a lower grade will be offer ed to Mr Dowdall, who is as deserving of a first class nppointmeut as almost any oth er democrat in Illinois. His ability is of tlie hihett order, he has always wielded a wide aod healthy influence In the demo cratic counsels of the state, and us an hon est and hard worker for the party's success has ever been found true and reliable. In a speech, full of witty sallies, made n few days ago, in London, at a farewell din tier given by Gen. Merritt, who has just been superseded as consul to Louden by the ap pointment of ex Gov. Waller, of Conn. Minister Lowell gave his republican friends a very decided shoj k by announc ing himself a mugwump, and declaring that if he had been at h une last Novem ber he should have voted for President Cleveland, adding, in the words of Job, ' Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him."

General Russell Thayer has received orders from the United States government to build an immense balhxin for the Ord- uance Board of the United States army. It will be the largest ever constructed, and will cost nearly $10,000. It will be used by the Signal Service Department of the army. Mrs. Grant says the happiest time of her life was when the general was living at Galena on a salary of $40 a month. Mrs Logan says the happiest time of her life was when John A. Logan was elected U. S. Senator last Tuesday. The Impression in the Michigan fruit region is that there will be hardly half a crop of anything this year, and that peach es will be virtually a failure. A fair crop of peaches is anticipated in Southern Il linois. The crop of wiuter wheat in this sec tion of Northern Illinois will be very poor, as compared with that of some seasons Tlie winter and early spring were too se vere. M uch ot the crop on the high ground was killed. That on the lower ground did not suffer so much. It will probably be not much more than a half crop.

Last Saturday a La Salle Polander started for Utlca on a freight train, and tells the following story : Being asked for his tick et and having only ten cents, he was taken by the brakeman, who made him Jump off while the train was In motion. In the fall he broke his leg above the ankle. In pass- Ing Utlca, a- note vu thrown off the .train stating that t man had Jumped off the train a mile west of that station. A section man went back and brought the helpless and unfortunate Individual to the Cement hotol at Utlca. If his story is true that brake man ought to bo bounced Instanter. The road Is criminally liable for his injury and should be a little more particular how men are bounced off w hen their trains are going even if tlie person is n Polander.
