Last Sunday's issue of the liloomington
Bulletin came to this office in a new and im
proved form. From a seven-column quarto,
it is changed to a nine-column folio, the
material used being pure white book paper
and the whole sheet, though covered every
where with fresh news and Btrong editorial
matter, has an immaculate appearanco that
is very attractive to the eye. The man
agers expect soon to increaso the paper's
size to a twelve column folio.
The following slander on Vassar girls
is going tho rounds. This is the way a
Vassargirl tells a joke: "Oh, girls! I
heard just the best thing to-day. It was
too funny. I can't remember how it cuiuo
about, but one of tho girls said to Prof.
Mitchell oh, dear, I can't remember just
what sho said; but Prof. Mitchell's answer
was just too funny for any uso; I forget
just exactly what lio said, but it was too
good for anything! "
The committee, appointed by tho Meth
odist Episcopal conference held at Syca
more, III., for several days past, to which
was referrod the caso of tho Rev. Dr. Thom
as, of Chicago, who Btood charged with
heresy o tho doctrines ot tho church, ar
rived at a decision, Slonday afternoon,
and expelled tho Dr. from tho ministry,
and from membership in tho church. It is
believed by some that tho decision was a
foregone conclusion.
At a meeting of the city council last
night a resolution was adopted requiring
Mr. Travers Daniel to carry out his orig
inal water works contract with tho city.
None of tho concessions asked for by him
were granted, although all of them were
discussed at length. It is probable now
that Mr. Daniels will abandon tho project
entirely and tho hopes of tho peoplo of
atro, that they would soon enjoy tho bless
ings ot a convenient and never-failing
water supply arc, for tho timo b-iing, at
least, blasted. No other important biui-
ncss was transacted by tho couucll.
-Dr. Thayer and family left last evening

The price of corn has gone up kiting,
and now booms along at sixty and sixty
fivo cents. Yu can tell tho farmer who
has two or threo thousand bushels to sell,
by the complacent self-satisfied air with
which ho surveys tho doing of tho dwellers
in the city. Ho wouldn't chango places
with a bank president, and oven goes so far
as to turn up his noso at a newspaper re
porter. When a man gets that far you may
know that he is literally rolling in wealth
or has great expectations.
Tho supremo court of Illinois has de
cided that all game is tho property of tho
state, and lienco that farmers, even on their
own land, cannot Bhoot, game during the
season included by the game laws. This is
probably news to a largo number, but a
rigid.cnforccment would not create any ss
rious inconvenience, for farmers aro not
much given to sporting at any timo and
they have something of more importance to
attend to during the busy season.
The following is a description of tho
two men who broke jail in Missouri, on
last Friday night: Appleton Atkinson,
aged sixty-eight years, five teet several
inches tall, with light or partly gray hair
and slightly bald, left ear psrtly cutoff;
and hu son, James C. Atkinson, twenty
five years, and weighing one hundred and
sixty pound?, complexion dark; both sen
teiiced to hang, Octolxr 28, for murder of
the wife and child of the latter, escaped
from jail in Gryaso, Mo.
Guiteau furnished a Washington Post
reporter last week with the following writ
ten remarks: "The press generally,
throughout the eouutry, has vilified and
traduced me from beginning to the present
time. I Btill repeat the country will soon
acknowledge the death of President Gar
field to have been a political necessity
which, if his death had not occurred, the
country in that event would have been pre
cipitated into a civil war. Tho -republicans
will soon see the great benefit they
have derived from the president's death.
Otherwise the party would have gone to
ruin." This is emphatic enough to con
vince the most skeptical that Guitcau's act
was a cool political murder and that tho
assassin is a cold-blooded scoundrel who
should be hung after the legal prelimina
ries are completed.
The ladies of the city are anticipating
a grand treat in the form of a display of
millinery at the elegant new establishment
of Mrs. S. Williamson, on Seventh street.
The display is to be made on Thursday
and Friday next, and will bo gorgeous in
appearance and infinite in variety as Mrs.
Williamson's stock is larger, newer and
more complete and her. establishment more
spacious than it has ever been before.
Years of experience in tho millinery bus
ness in this city has taught Mrs. William
son not only w here and how to purchase tho
best and newest goods at the cheapest
price, but has alo enabled her to judge
correctly of the peculiar wants of her cus
tomers. See may therefore bo rolied upon
as being able to accommodate any one with
everything desirable in her line at reasona
ble figures. Do not forget her grand open
ing next Thursday and Friday.

$3,500 per year attached to it. Mr. Munn
ranks high as a member of tho Masonic

A ray of light Bcoms at last to have
penetrated to tho understanding of tho man
of tho evening papor. Or, perhaps, it
would 1)0 more proper to say that he has
finally, with an effort, acknowledged tho
truth which his superior wisdom enabled
him to soo long before "tho lioy" of The
Bulletin sought to impress it upon him,
lie ocknowledgcs that the policy of the
county authorities toward the poor of the
city is not so illiberal as ho formerly bo
licvcd ; but ho makes the acknowledgement
in a very ambiguous way. He seeks to
hide his own chango of mind by pretending
that thcro has been a change in the policy
of tho authorities, which is not truo. Tho
policy of the county commissioners towards
tho poor of tho county has always boon as
liberal as tho funds placed in their hands
by tho peoplo would permit them to bo
and as tho people have not increased their
funds therb can have been no chango toward
greater liberality in the policy pursued by
the commissioners In tho case of indigent
or wounded strangers. The editor of tho
evening papor, having villificd tho comity
authorities because ho thought their policy
toward tho county poor was illiberal, will
certainly not, being an honest man, attempt
to justify such villification, now that ho has
"learned" 'from The Bulletin' and been
"informed" 'by The Bulletin' otherwise,
by pretending that that policy has been
changed, when there was a physical impos
sibility of such a change.
It appears now that tho dynamite
scare which was given Great Britain a
short time ago by tho Irish agitators in this
country was merely a scheme to extort
money from the English government, und
that O'Donovan Rossa, of New York, Petur
Crowe, of Peoria and one Foye, of Phila
delphia, were the successful manipulators.
Tho schemo was worked thus: Foye and
Rossa procured the construction, at Phila
delphia, of several dynamite machines; and
they were delivered to Foyo in June; and
when Roasa got possession of them, fully
charged Foye proceeded to turn traitor.
It Is not possible to learn to whom he first
made tho overtures, but in tho course of
time he was negotiating with the British
consul in New York. The 4irst informa
tion given by Foye was that a Fenian had
left New York on a White Star line
steamer, having in bis possession two of the
infernal machines. Foye had with him
one of the terrible machines and so im
pressed the British official that the hitter
demanded the inspection of the baggage
and the arrest of the person. Foye design
edly lodged his information after ho had
arrived and thus gave tho passenger a
chance to leave the boat, but bo had left
his baggage, and it was searched and tho
two machines found concealed therein.
The conspirators then cooked up the details
of another big plot, by which several tre
mendous explosions were to be effected, and
for their pretended exposures of the same,
embracing information by which several
machines (which had been previously
planted) were found, tho British consul
paid them $10,000.
"Phocion Howard, the well known cor
respondent of the Chicago Tribune, has
been spending the present week in Southern
Illinois, investigating the probable damage
inflicted upon agrictural and other interests
by the late drought. Col. Howard says
there is a general feeling among prom
inent men in favor of a called session to
enact a stay law for shle and local taxes."
Shawnee News. Mr. Howard, with un
usual consciousness in his utterances,
does not boldly suggest that the "feeliDgs
among prominent men" be satisfied by an
order from the proper state authorities to
stop the collection of taxes. Probably his
failure t suggest this is due to the fact
that the reasons which, it is alleged, call
for such action, are very weak ana tho re
Bults that would follow it would be very se
rious. The state tax, thanks to the economy
in the management of the government, en
forced by the democratic members in the
legislature, is very small, to be relieved of
which would hardly be fealt. Relief from
local taxation would bo a more important
affair, but while such relief would do a mite
of good here and there, the evil consequences
would be incalculable in advance. The
county, township and district governments,
many of which are in debt now, could not
possibly be carried on without the collec
tion of the taxes, and the natural result
would bo that officers could
not receive their salaries, courts could
not be convened, prisoners would
have to lie In jail without n keeper
without food and without trial in short
the whole machinery of the county govern
ments would suddenly stop, causing the
greatest confusion and much buffering. A
good suggestion is made by the Carmi
Times in the following words : The best
way to ease up matters is for each and all
to stop trying to borrow trouble about
hard times and go to work to meet their
liabilities. If times are hard cut off enough
luxuries to even up on, and when the year
is over you will bo thankful that no bills
were stayed.
The statements of tho evening paper
that there is no need for tho exercise of
private charity, and that Dr. Parker and tho
Sisters of tho Holy Cross aro taxing them
selves unnecessarily with the cane of the
man Lawson, are neither justified by any
tiling that The Bulletin said, nor by good
sense, an article with which tho editor of
thoeucning paper, being old in years,
should be well supplied. What was said
in yesterday morning's Bulletin went to
show that if tho friends of Lawson had not
taken him in charge immediately and had
notified tho officers instead, Lawson would
havo been taken care of by the authorities;
and, furthermore, that thcro were means
provided by tho county, especially for tak.
ing care of such cases. This was said in
reply to the evening paper's slur against
the officers of tho city, and its statement
that "thcro is no provision for his
(Shannessy's) victim." Thero is always
neod for tho exorciso of private charitv.

It is exercised in evory civilized communi
ty and will always bo called unon to

may be. In fact it is probablo that the do

creased and becomes known. In the case
of Lawson, as in many other cases, Dr.
Purkcr and the Bisters were imposed upon
by the friends of the victim. Lawson was
taken in charge by the sisters and by Dr.
Parker with the understanding that they
were to receive compensation for their ser
vices from tho friends of the patient. Sub
sequently these friends played tluf doctor,
and the sisters falsely, refusing tostand by
their promises, and thus Liwson became a
charity patient and a burden upon the sis
ters and the doctor, which they can not de
cently abandon. If the evening paper
will but inform itself of the factsin a case,
read the law bearing upon it and ponder
well over the whole matter, its editor's su
perior wisdom, the result of superior age,
will be less liable to break out in uncalled
for slurs and blundering criticisms, and it
would not then be compelled to resort to
misrepresentations in order to extricate
itself out of the dilemia into which such
slurs and criticisms have thrown it.
