KATl'BKAV FEB 4. IHH3 KF.WSPAPEBS AXI POL1- Charles May, of Aarora, is re ported as having said in this city a few days ago that he was in favor of abolishing all the newspapers in the State as they were a lot of blackmailing insti ttitutions who would not allow man to sret elected unless he Ktood in with them. Mr. May unwittingly nays a well de served tribute to the influence of the free Dress. There are a certain class of politicians who, if there were no newspapers in the country would in a few years be able to have the com plete control of all the offices, all the fat salaries and all the pub lic money in the State. The only bar in the way of this is in the fact that there are news papers capable of sifting these schemes to the bottom and ef fectually squelching them. It may be a little rough on these men that the newspapers cannot he tied up to their jobs and whipped into line. The only j-emedy for them is to j.;o down to Patagonia or me wilds of Central Brazil. The idea that politicians must Ixik upon newspapers as aids to olitical success is really a curi ous proposition. The real mis sion of a high minded and con scientious press is to do the campaign advertising free, print calls for mass meetings all through the campaign at gra tuitous rates with 30 per cent. discount added. The editor should write out speeches for the stumpers who can't write their own idea, eliminate the Lad grammar for those who think they can, and attract to himself all the abuse of the cam paign in order that Brown, Jones and Thompson may all get fat offices and have a good thing for two or four years. When nil this is accomplished' he is .supposed to get from the Cen tral Committee about ."0 per ent. of what it has cost him through the campaign for the wages of extra compositors. This is the high moral idea that seems to permeate tins western community. TELEGRAPHIC. ILLINOIS PEOPLE TEARING UP RAILROAD TRACKS. SHERIDAN DENIES BEING AN "INVINCIBLE."

The forth coming issue of the IrUh World wilj contain a long interview with r. J. Sheridan, whom James Carey, the iu former, in hi testimony in Dublin declared to be an " Invincible " organ izer.

Chicago, Feb. 23 The Chictgo fc 5vaustou Iliilroad, built some eeveu yeiri ago, and ruining a populous dis trict in the northwestern portion of the ity, was the scene of a rit at 12 o'clock last night. About 203 men, well organized, composed uhu.ll of B. 'lurniau, Swedish and Polish laborers, were imrched to the locality known as Goose I -land, near which the road passec, aud beginning at FJIextoa av-f-.itue proceeded to tear up the tracks of the roail for 500 feet. A lare f jrce of police were called upoa atid they dis persed the rioters, making no arrest. This raiiroa 1 wai built in the face of much opposition, and has stiff rod on everal oocisi'ins from deuioitcti'a'.ions diimUr to that of last night. Bradwood, III., Feb. 23 The work if pumping out the mina con:iriues. Two more large pumps are being placed in position.

A dealer in Chinese aud Japautse goods recently advertised that he had for fait) a lare quantity of hair from China. A re porter asked him if the bair was col lected in the same manner a the Euro pean article, from the abnndant tresses of peasant girK "Ao he replied, " dealers procure it mostly from the prison. Oao of the punishments most feared by some Chine-e criminals is the deprivation of their pig-tails. They would, rather commit kari kari than lose this precious appendage, especially if it is very long. As there are many criminals in China there is no scarcity of hair." . Jacksonville.

Reporter Dj vou cot think the con sequences might be serivus ii you v placed in the dock in Dublin .' 5-heririan britisli courts and r.ritish law in Ireland are simp'y to convict, Victims are wanted, aud I know that if the Irih government trot me into its clutches I wuuld certainly be hanged, even though I disproved as I could easily disprove every charge which in former Carey lias sworn against ine. My innocence or guile would not affect the is-ue, Keporter v ith such tears on your mind would it not be better to move to some countrv having no extradition treaty with England? Sheridan If there were no other c moderation than my iodividuai safety 1 might be induced to think so, but feel that my trial here should it come to that will resu'.t in giving the Amer ican people an opportunity of judging of the class ol evidence ou w hicn irre proachable men are frequently hanged in Ireland. Such an expose, I imagine, would be productive ot good results for Ireland; therefore I rtmain. Reporter Do yuu entertain any hopes for the prisoners in Ireland ? Sheridan No. Dr. Nulty's life is no safer than James Mullet is, if the Ln gush government only deem it pontic to haug him. If Carey, Kavanaugti and Farrell found it necessary to save their necks by sweating that Dr. Nulty killed Cavendish and Burke, they would do it. The government has only to name its victims ami the ikfoimeis will swear according to orders. R -porter "Sappofitig thesi men should be hanged, whai do you thiok will be the result ? Sheridan That is a matter only to be ues?ed at. There is one thiug, however, of which I have no doubt, and that i that Ireland was never so determined ou the advancement ;f her independence, and never so str-iihc on the track of obtaining it, as she is at this hour. Ilsporter Do you know this in former Carey, who says he was intro duced to jvu at Aogell's Hotel in Dub lin ? Sheridan I never met the man in my iife. His reference to an interview with me in Angell's Hotel, Dublin, and his statement about my promising to forward him some arms from LocdoD, are sheer falsehoods, and convince me that bis story has been concocted for him in Dublin Castle; and Carey, in or der to save his miserable neck, volun teered to swear to it in the witness box. Reporter As a matter of fact, have you not been m the disguise of a priest iu Ireland, as a'leed ? Sherdin Yes; I fonud it necessary to visit Ireland tor two reasons, which 1 will give you. B:-ing aware of the fact that a general order was iittit'd froni the Casile to the police to arrest me if I was found iu any part of Ire land ( it that time the British govern ment was arresting eery Irishman who was thought to lie of service to the Lnd League caue). I assumed the disguise of a priest, I went to Ireland, rirst, for the purpose of arrangiug for the recovery of some property of which I had been robbed during my impiis ji - purpose of putting down agrarian acts and upholding the " No Kent " mani festo, by pfts?ure of social ostracism, that being iu my opinion the most puttnt as well as the mo4 moral ' weapon " within the people's reach. I also found it necessary to inquire into some alleged negltcts aud abuses in couueuttou with the expenditure of the Liud league tunds, atl ing out of the fact that the La lies' League in Dunlin, as well as Egau aud myself, had bte.n deprived of the assistance of our trained organizers, most of whom were then lock el up in prison as scspects. Reporter Do you think if you bad been allowed to return to Ireland you could have prevented any of these acts of bloodshed ? Sheridan I have no doubt that if I and other accive men, then cither in prison or exile, had been allowed to move about as usual amongst the peo ple, society would have been spared the horrible exhibitions or most of them chat followed. Forster ruled otherwise, and on him and him alone rests the res ponsibility. Maamtrasna, Gurteen, Etllina, l'lieuix Park and like trsgdi-is throuehout Ireland would have been unheal d of. Id fact, Forster has on the floor of the House of Commons ad mitted his responsibility for acts com mitted by the llicers of the law, and I I .. .. feel that history will charge mm wi'h the responsibility of the crimes com mitted by the maddened people. He it is that should be on his trial for tbe massicres, that of Pheuix Park includ ed. i, Reporter la your opinion, have any Land League funds been employed for promoting disorder in Ireland as al leged ? Sherid-tn Such a presumption cm only emanate from one of two sources either from total ignorance of the Land League policy and its leaders, or an ill concealed desire to disparage both. SOEN'ES AT EVICTIONS. Rejorter Have you witnessed any eviction scenes in Ireland T Sheridan Ye, niaoy. During my connection with the Land League I vis ited the scenes of some of these evic tion?, and gathered car-loads of women and children from nnder fences iu the depth of Winter. Oo one occasion I have seen a fever-stricken patient car ried on a pallet from his poor cabin and placed on a dans-heap, which was cov ered at the time with a foot of snow. While the Sheriff was going through the legal form of "taking possession," the poor man expired, with the snow- 1 flakes falling on his dying face. 1 DR. NULTY, ! Whom Sheridan mentions above, is the j Bishop ot Aleath, and iti a pagtora! to his priests used this laoguage : Seven hundred human btiogs were driven from their homes in one day and set adrift in the world, to gratify the caprice of one who, before God and man, probably deserved less c modera tion than the last and least of them ; and we remember well that there was not a siugle shi ling of rent due on the estate at the time, except by one man, and the character and acts of that man made it perfectly clear that the agent and he quite understood each other. The crowbar brigade recoiled with ter ror from two dweliinas. They had learned that the frightful typhus fever held those houses in its grasp, and they cupplicated the agent to spare those h-ues. The aeut was iuex orable, am ordered lare winnowing sheets to b". secured over the beds in which the fever victim Isy, anil di rected the houses to be unroofed. leader of the cleric il party, suid the government was blaicable for the cop llict with the Vatican, as it has not been in earnest in ifs negotiations. The government is not desirous of peace with the Vatican, although the Emperor is in favor of it. Schorlenier affirmed that the State would b3 forced t make j-ic with the Roman Cnria and tn termir.iie the expatriation of the Catholic c mimuni ties, which promoted demora i.aticn anil prepared the way f.r the triumph of Socialism. The Minister of Public Instruction said he would place no difficulty in the wy of religious scbi Is, but only desired to prevent the extrcs? of cer taiu special influences over the fchool. He refused t.i answer Windthorst's question whether negotiations with the Curia had been broken off. He said the government had almost entirely re moved the sequestration of iuconv of the clergy, and had pardoned Bishop MeJch'-is. This cause 1 gs-m-ral sur prise, arid debate wn9 adjourned.
