that the pleas of the defendant tnnst

revision. In 1MJI the general act
relating to fees and salaries wn.

claimed, is all the compcnsat.ott he
is ntitlcd to under the law. It was

At the close of the

Corn Ms Tiavrta.
The I'coria Herald civc a sketch
of the travels of corn in this:
Illinois is xhe great corn Hate, and
Peoria is the center of its most pro
lific lielt. I'coria is a great "rain
market and especially for corn.
Vast fjuantitie of thcp-ldcn train
are hhip;ed Into this city f r general
distribution end loaded Into its mam
moth elevators by the hundreds of
thousand of bnuls. A prcat deal
of corn is shipped from Peoria, but a
yat quantity is ucd at hnme.
Tlicre is ir.ore corn used in Peoria
than in any three cities in the union,
even though tho.-e cities be New
York, Philadelphia and ("hiencro.
The reason is obvious. Peoria is
not only the ccntir of the great dis
tilling interest-,, but here arc located
two of the p-eitot s'.i;ar Louses in
the coantry. Hovvn the capacious
maws of the yreat ditii!cries arc
poured every iiay S '.OJ) bushels of
corn. The Mi-nr houses use from
5.0JJ to bushels more each
day in the year. To npp!v this
constant demand tlie product of
1.009 acres of rich corn lands are
daifr shipped into Peoria for home
consumption. Aside from these
there are fully 5.K'0 bushels used
daily for other purposes. So
that it is safe to estimate that full v
9.O00.0OH bushels of corn are u-ed
in this ciiy annually for manufactur
ing and otner purposes. The prcatr
part of this 'is manufactured into
spirits. It is wonderful to consider
the changes made by a bushel of
corn in its transition from the own
er's crib to the glass of theensumer.
These han'es are" various and far
reacbinc They are other than finan
cial, but consider simply the mere
clement of value. Corn was sold re
cently for S cents per bnhel. It
came tall the way from Nebraska,
perhaps, where it brought but 25
cents. Id transit two d.-alers re
ceived a commission of one cent each.
The railroad company received eiirht
cents f:r frcignt ad other charges.
The distiller paid .Vt cents. He lk
ami converted it into f vir and a half
ga..on of spirits, and fed one of his
steers on tin; refilfC. The distiller
sold the Spirts to a lira! dealer f ir
fi. IS. of which fncle !n!ii received
tM.oj as ta on the spirits, having a
halancu to the distiller of 75 cent
after he bad' paid So cents for his
The spirit, after being well
watered and compounded, are sold at
a profit by the compounder and rec
tifier t' tii dealer, who sells it out
at 15 cents a drink. The four-and
one-half gallons hnve swelled to nine,
and before it gots through it swells
