Monday Ereaing, Jon 10 1887. General Smith Sleeted Judge. Galesbcrg, Jane 6. To the Chicago Times : In the late contest for Jndre in this (the 10th) judicial district, T. J. Frost was the regular republican candidate. He was put through the convention in regular ring style, and was proclaimed as the regular nominee, and, it was said, must be supported. Gen. A. A. Smith was a candidate before the con vention : but his soldier friends, not beiner ring-masters, were beaten in the convention. The democrats came to the conclusion that, A New Bedford paper says that a rage for collecting buttons has superseeded the mania forgathering postage stamps. Queen Emma is held responsible for the custom, and one New Bedford girl has a thousand or I everything else being right, it would do to more in her collection, no two of which are 1 take a man that the ring had discarded ; so I ie democrats ana soldiers joined hands, tle- wrminea to urea ana aesiroy the political ring-masters, ana the continued determina tion to bring cold. Froat-v men before the people. v ell, we can announce to you that the ring is broken, ' and the scldiers' and democrats' friend has been elected by a ma jority of from 1,000 to 2,000. This is good enough tor this time. itness The Chicago Tribune, after reading, it is said, the other day, that the charge of Judge Underwood to the grand jury of Richmond "is a disgrace to the bench." After quoting a passage of the Judge's foolery, the Tribune asks: "Is this a iudieial charge or is it a cavalry charge?'' . The New York Times, a radical journal, says : "The policy pursued by congress for the last two years will inevitably end in a practical repudiation of the public-debt, and it is jus, as well for the country to understand this first as last. . And the danger is that this policy always will be pursued." The hoots and jeers at the impeachment committee are numerous aud hearty. The fizzle is complete. There is hardly a radi cal who will say a good word for the project, now that it is as dead as the deadest kind of a dead door nail. The President has not condescended to notice ibit attempt to de- prive him of his position. Another political person has come to grief. Rev. James Davidson Dyke, of Indiana, was excessively "loyal" during the war, and proved his Orthodoxy and love of country by inciting several riots against "copperheads. A few days ago he was arrested for horse stealing, and it is said several clear cases will be made out againBt him. Return of the Presidential Party. Washington", June 8. Shortly after the Presidential party left Richmond this morn ing a salute was hrcd by a detachment ot United States artillery, on a lot near the line of railroad and within view of the pas sengers. A company of cavalry was in line on the same prosaises. On reaching Ash- lev the crowd came to the car for the pur pose ot paving their respects to the President and Secretary -Seward. Post Master Gen eral Randall left the party and returned to W ashington last night. Cheers were given as the tram moved on. At Fredericksburg the assemblage called on the President for a speech, but he merely thanked his friends for their cordial recep tion. Cheers were given as the train left the station. The party returned to Wash ington at 4 o'clock this afternoon. The crowds at the various stations were larger on the return than on the journey to Raleigh, with a corresponding increase ot hospitality All parties express themselves dengniea with the trip.

No interesting incidents occurred to distin guish this sale from ordinary auction sales, except the bidding for an axe,- supposed to have been te axe that did all the "rail splitting,' and. which on that supposition brought a good deal more than it was worth, otherwise, the prices which the articles brought even those which had had the happiness of having been in contact with the Batit'actory "sainted martyr' were reasona ble and satisfactory, except, perhaps, to deal ers m second-hand turnunre ana articles of certu.

A miner at Pike's Peak took his gun and stray ed a short distance from the camp and shot a cub, not observing at the same time the old bear, who was near at hand, ready to avenge the death of her onspring. the hunter approached his game with an exultant air, . ..." , . . i glowing in his success ana anticipating me astonishment of his companions to see him march into their midst with an ample supply of tender bear meat, when, to his sur- prise, he w a large near nounaing towaras him, very much di'termined to demolish him at one meal. Our hero dropped his gun and started off like a tnghtened deer down the hill, ms companions saw him coming, tearing through the brush, and sung out to him : hat s the matter ? "Gi-gi-gi-git vour guns ready for a shot?" stammered he, almost out of breath i "I'm bringingher right into camp?' Fearfcl Case. In the surety case reported in the court proceedings, the pros ecutrix was interrogated by Judge Mellon as to the character of the threat made by the defendant. Prosecutrix She said she would cut out heart's blood and scatter it over the By Telegraph. REPORTED FOURTHS DAILY ARGUS. Initiation of Schuyler Colfax. A gentleman who lives in a quiet town near Milwaukee was invited to bring his wife to that city to spend the holidays. He said he would be glad to do so, but his wife was expecting a new bonnet from New York, and if it did not come she would not allow herself in fashionable society. Ou Monday the Milwaukee gentleman received the fol lowing note : "My wife got the bonnet. It came by express. This is an episode. You ought to see it. It looks like a nigger min strel's breastpin, or an enormous jet finger ring, cut so as to have the setting fit around the ears. You may expect us." my pavement. Judge Mellon Had she a Kmre Prosecutrix No 1 It was her busiuess to see about the knife, not mine. The threat therefore was not as terrible as it had seemed, and from the disposition evinced by the prosecutrix, the court con cluded that justice might be done by pu ishine- all narties alike, so the costs wore ai videi. -Pittsburg Gazette. Nickel Cents Called in. The secretary of the treasury has author ized the director of the mint, with a view of reducing the quantity of cents in circulation. and obtaining a supply of nickel in convex ient form, to purchase the nickel cents, pay ing the nominal value in three and five cent pieces, which will begin on the 10th of June, under the following rules : "First Persons sending or bringing the nickel cents will receive a certificate of the weight thereof, and the amount payable in three and five cent pieces, or both, as they may desire, and with their endorsement thereon, such cerficates will be paid as soon as the coins are ready. Second they must be careful not to send any but the kind mentioned, which are read ily known bv the color and size, and by the dates of 1857 to 163. Third The pieces will be taken not by count, but by avoirdupois or grocers' weight. No lot will be received under ten pounds, and no spoiled, illegible, or doubtful pieces will be taken. Fourth The reasonable expense of the transportation of three cent pieces in sums of thirty dollars, and five cent coins in sums of fifty dollars and uuward. to any points ac- ceasible by railroad or steamboat, wnl be paid by the mint. Fifth This arrangement will be revoked as soon as it is found that the issue ot three and five cents is likely to become too large, or that the abatement of cents is sufficient. The sole object of this operation is to confer a public benefit; and none of the cents here in named have any special value." Meeting of the Agricultural Society. Rock Islaxd, Ii.i.., June 8, 18G7.

Our city election took place to-day, and resulted m the most complete democatic vic tory ever achieved in this city. Heretofore the municipal elections have been held in March of each year, but, by political trick ery, the corrupt legislature of last winter changed the time ot holding the election to a later time in the season, when not less than 250 of our democratic voters are engag ed on the river, thus hoping to carry the election to the control of the radicals. The result yesterday covers this corrupt scheme witn utter contusion. The officials elected are : Mayor Shiasler ; aldermen, Ballinger, Marfield, De Jaeger, Dax and iierry. The defeated ticket was headed by John Lorrain for mayor, the most popular man that the republican party could bring out. and, to still further strengthen, the ticket, renegade democrats were put on for alder men. Mayor Shissley's maiority is nearly 250. The aldermen have majorities ranging from 18 to 130. The third ward is handsomely carried by the democracy, the hrst time in the history of the city. Two young gentlemen of Munich, says a German naper, were sitting at a table, en- iovinEr a couple of mugs of Brey's best, aud their cigars, when one said to the other : "I would like first rate to see Prais awhile this spring or summer," "There is nothing to prevent it." "About how much does it cost per day, on the average? ' ' "Well, for a hundred francs a day, you can see Paris splend idly." "And if I take my wife?" "Oh, then fifty francs a day will be plen ty- To the EddetuT of the Times. Madersuk, Wis., June C.

A gentlemen who has just returned from a tour over the state sonth 5f the Minnesota valley, says the St. Paul Pioneer, brings the most cheering accounts ot democratic pros pects. The democrats were never in better spirits or more sanguine of carrying Minnesota at the next election. Ihev are sansrume lor the verv solid reasons that the people are getting their eyes open, and changes from radicalism bv the scores aud hundreds are going on to such an extent even in the black est radical counties that nothing will be wanting, according to their opinion, but an early convention and a thorough canvass with live democrat.'! for candidates, to en sure a glorious victory in November. We could specify particulars and give iocaliticf--, and satisfv our readers of the solid grounds for unfaltering faith in victory, but every reader will believe us from what he knows in his own neighborhood to be true. - Chat- Jidd Democrat.

Stan'fen and John Jones, his partner, had had a quarrel. Dr. Jones and Judge Iv. B. Jones threatened to kill Stanffer if ho did not leave the place. He (Stanffer) was the popular radical candidate for the convention, and they wished him out of the way. Last Mondiy Stanf fer was about to have the Jones brothers bound over to keep the peace, when the judge nd doc tor attacked him. John Jones men roue up ana, with a double. barreled guu, deliberately killed Stanffer. He then rode to Stanffer house, called his wife, and told her he had killed her hnsbaud. He then rode out of town. The sheriff attempted to arrest the Joues'and was shot in the head and severely wounded, and an assistant was shot in the arm. These Jones' are nephews of Gov. ells. It. B. Jones was appointed to the supreme bench of the state during Well's administration. It is said that the political managers in ash ington re trying to sound General Grant on the question of his accepting the nomination for the next presidency. It is further said that the general has intima ted that he docs not desire it himself, would like the nomination to be extended to General Sher man. The cabinet is said to be about equally divided on the suhjeet of General Sheridan's removals in New Orleans.

An old fellow in a town in Essex county, Mass., once re spectable, who, through looking upon the wine when it was red, and fluids of other colors, was reduced to the condition of a pauper, was allowed accasional liberty be yond the poor house walls, which he im proved by calling on a dear friend who clan destinely snld the creature. In his lasfvisit he imbibed a glass or two, and received, besides, a couple of glasses in a Kittle, forti fied with which, he sallied forth to full into the arms of a constable, who had watched him through the window : the result was, the friend was prosecuted, and the pauper sum moned as a witness, When placed upon the stand he was asked if he knew the prisoner. Certainly, he had known him many years. "Did you ever go there ?" "Yes; always, when he went to town." . "And now,' -said the magistrate, "did you ever buy anp liquor there ?"'

This road was completed from Omaha 395 miles west on the 1st of January, 1S67, and is fully equipped, and trains are regularly running over it. The Company has now ou hand sufficient iron, ties, etc., to finish the remaining portion to the eastern base of the Rocky ."fountains, 212 miles, which is under contract to be done Septem ber 1st of this year, aud it is expected that the entire road will bo in running order from Omaha to its western.connection with the Central Pacific, now being rapidly built eastward from Sacramen to, Cal., during 1S70. Means of the Company. Estimating the distance to be built by the Union Pacific to lie 1,365 miles, the United States Gov ernment issues its Six percent. Thirty-year bonds to the Cohipany as the road is finished at the av erage rate of about $2S,2jO per mile, amounting to$44,2t9,00. The Company is also permitted to issue its own First Mortgage Bund? to an equal amount, and at the same time, which by special Act of Cougres are made a First Mortgage on the entire line, the Kr.n,U of the United States hr!mi mtlnrtlinutc tu The Government makes a donation of 12,800 acres of land to the mile, amounting to 20,032,000 acres, estimated to be worth $30,000,000, making the total resources, exclusive of the capital, 11S 4 16,000; but the full value of the lands cannot now be realized. The authorized Capital Stock af the Company is one hundred million dollars, of which five mil alrcadv !eeii iiaid in. and of which it i nut sui.iiiiscd that more than twenty-five mil - i i lions at most will be n quired. '" The cot-t of the road is estimated by competent engineers to be nbout oue hundred million dollars, exclusive of equipment. Prospects for Business. The railroad connection between Uuiih ana the East is now complete, and the earnings of the Union Pacific on the sections already finished for the first two weeks in May were 113,000. These uMinnl arniuL'st as the road i.roi:resses will much more than pay the interest on the Compa ny's bonds, and the through business over the on ly line of railroad between the Atlantic and Pa cificmustbe immense. Value and Security of the Bonds. The Company respectfully submit, that the above statement of facts fully demonstrates the securitv if their Bonds, and as additional proof thev would surest that the Bonds now offered r less than ten million dollars on 517 miles of road, cn which over twenty miUion dollars have already been expended; on oO miles ot this road the cars arc now running, and the remaining 1S7 miles arc nearly complete-!. At the present rate of premium on gold these bonds pay an annual interest on the present cost Nine Per Cent., and it is believed that on the completion of the road, like the Government Bonds, they will go above par. The Company intend to sell but a limited amount at the present low rate, and retain the right to advance the price at their option.
