MoGhee, was last Wednesday escorted to Joliet and there lodged in the peniten tiary by bherifl ilills, ol Lee county, to scrye out his Bentenoe of fourteen years imprisonment Tbe sheriff kept the time of his departure as secretly as possible, as some fears were entertained that tbe in dignant people of Ashton would mob the train and lynch the prisoner. Oq arriviog at Joliet, McGhee entered his name on tbe prison record as a Methodist minister of 18 years standing; thereby practicing a fraud which could serve him no good pur pose, and ia this' sustaining his previous reputation of habitually lying when the truth would have served his purpose better, and of committing crime without an apparently reasonably motive. When shaven and arrayed in prison garb, he was unrecognizable by the sheriff who accom panied him there. There being no call for undertakers and but an indifferent field for his miuisterial labors, he was immediately set to work at the harness business. If on his bckt behavior during his residence in Joliet, he will receive a reduction of one mouths lime on his first year, two on his second, aud so on in like ratio to the sixth, after which each year will be reduced six months. Thus he may in eight years and three months, be again a free man, still in the prime of life about 45 years of age, and possibly a more than ever dangerous member of society. The boys who were 1m companions in jail here suy that on their release they can divulge things per taining to his conduct while there that will be astonishing. The Dixon bun says: Sheriff Hill informs cs that the appear ance of Elder McGhee was very mueh altered after the penitentiary authorities cut those long, silky, black whiskers from his chin, and the hair from his head. Neither did the Zebra clothing in which he wat dressed become the elder, or im press the beholder that such was a suita ble suit for a man accustomed to running camp meetings and "sich." That the jury did not do its duty ia the McGhee case, is the all but universal com plaint of the press. Ho was either inno cent or guilty; if innocent, be should have gone free; if guilty, h9 should be hanged, or at leaat imprisoaed for life. Republican Judicial Convention. W. C. Bennett, chairman of the Repub lican county committee, aot'iLg under the pressure of party influence or perhaps "at tho request of two or Ihree friends." has called a county convention to be held at the court house in this city, at 2 o'clock in the afternoon of July 16th, to choose delegates the Republican district convention, to fce elect a third candidate for circuit judge. The basis of representation will be one delegate for every 50 Republican votes cast at the last Presidential election, and one delegate for every fraction of 25 votes or over which gives tho followiog number of de legates : Delegates.

If a mere party convention is held it is probable that some person more noted for his love of party than for his qualifications for judgeship would be likely to be selected for the position. We would therefore suggest to all such people as desire to have a judge elected without regard to his political opinions to refuse to have anything to do with the Republican convention iust called bv Mr. Bennett.

Taxsa Paid on tbe P. & R. I. EL. R. Yesterday afternoon. R. R. Cable, Esq., President of the Peoria & Rock Island Railway, paid County Treasurer Porter $7,543 35 being theamonut of delinquent taxes of that road due this county for the years 1873-4 -5, except the capital stock tax of 1373 This amount also includes the interest due for the years 1874-5-6. Mr. Porter is the first officer, for the counties through which the roads run, to get his money from the road and the promptness of Mr. Cable in settling with him shows that he intends to manage the road in a straight-forward and business like manner. The taxes due the other counties on the line of the road will be paid in a few days.

V., have practically abondoned theirgor-ganization- At a meeting held a night or two ago they resolved that members shall be allowed to sell their labor to any employ er on the best terms they can obtain. The strike has lasted for eight months, and the union, being one of the strongest in the country, Las to that time had ample oppor tunity to test the practicability of regu lating the laws of trade by tbe by-laws of trade societies it is to be interred that the long experiment has resulted unsat isfactorily. ' The loss to the strikers them selves from this fruitless contest must have been enormous, while the injury inflicted upon the town through the partial paralysis of one of its chiet industries, is beyond computation. The star of the Sherman House, Chica go, is still in the ascendant, shedding its eweet influence on all the way-worn trave lers who turn in thither, at the reduced price of 3.00 per day, for all rooms with out baths abofe the parlor floor.
