MANYof the voters of the twenty-first district, and for that matter of all the other legislative districts of the stale arc not aware of the great importance of sending men of force and brain to the uext general assembly. In 1882 a law was passed ceding the Illinois & Mich igan canal to the general govenment, in case the government should widen and deepen it, and extend it from Hennepin to Tiock Island. The life of this law, statute or proposal, was live years. It ends No- vember 7, 1887. The railroad interests are figuratively sicaUiug, moving heaven and earth to cause the canal project to drag alons till these five years have elapsed. They will do all in their power to prevent an extension of the time for coding the canal to the government. Now then, men of br-iu aud force are needed, most vitally needed, to represent these districts most closely interested in the canal. That lime must he extended. We believe that Fisher and Kenworthy are the men of the hour. Fisher is a re publican nominee: Kenworthy a demo cratic nominee; but their iuterest in this most important of matters to Northwest ern Illinois, is mutual. (jeneoo ..Ve-ci. Diking the last week two cabinet meetings have been heid. The questions discussed related to the surrender of Ge roninio and to the participation of federal office holders iu obstrusive and practical politics. If anybody is harboring the notion that the president does not mean to exact obedience to his order prohibit ing office holders from manipulating conventions, they are probably of the class of persons who wilt not admit that the president is capable of sincerity, or of another class that unreasonably ex pects him to correct all offenses of a pars tisan character by instinct, instead of waiting to have the facts in euch case laid before hini for consideration and action. A number of cases have been brought to his notice and to the notice of the cabinet, and it is altogether likely that some of the more prominent offend ers will be reminded of their offences in such a way as to convince all the lesser ones that the prohibitory order was issued in good faith, ntnl that it means all it savs. The situation in the department at Washington is remarkable. Nothing like it has been seen for at least twenty years. A determined political struggle is going on in the different states, and the govern ment clerk attends to his routine duties and is apparently no more interested in the result of the election than are the mc chanic8 and trades people of Washing, ton . Heretofore it has been their cus tom during a political contest to waste their time discussing politics and to wager their money on the result. It is doubt less a fact that a majority of the em ployes secretly hope for republican suc cess; but the day of their organizing cam paign clubs, contributing and begging money, procuring cheap railroad rates and leaving in a body to'stump and vote early and often for the republican can didate in their several states, is past. The country is gaining both in the puri fication of politics and in securing more and better work from government em ployea. . Creronim' blood !

T he oration of the occasion was delivered by ex-Governor Hoadly, who was a law stu dent of the chief justice in years gone by, and his remarks upon the occasion were alike worthy of the speaker and the occasion Justice Stanley Matthews also paid ail elo quent tribute to the 'lead, and was listened to with rapt attention.

A very largo and distinguished audience was iiresent at tho ceremonies throughout. Sillmmi P. Chore was born in Cornish. N. If., Jan l tsoH,, and waa (Iu ninth child In a fmiy " fhllilHiii, hi ft'HW i It" a sturdy old former, and bis mother a woman of many noble traits of character. When in his teens, he waa committed to the care of his uncle, Thilander Chase, Episco pal bishop of t hio. In IKS! he was admitted to the bar, and moved to Cincinnati in the follow ing year, where he bee an his practice. His tli-st celebrated case was that of Matilda, a fugitive slave, who had escaiied WHITEI.AW beid. from her mnstar at the liver landine. The case became famous, and the young attorney's reputation was firmly established. Before this time his politic. opinions had not been formed, out he was henceforrh a strong anti-slavery man. The Matilda inn. lent occurred in 1K37. Three years late Chase voted for Harrison for pres ident, on account of personal friendship. Ia IH49 t wo Free Hollers in tne legisla ture held the balance of power in the legisla ture, and by a combination with the liemo crats, HiUmon P. Chase was elected United States senator, and took hi sent hv thi side of Thomas Cm-win, his col league in the Thirst-first congress. In 18i5, be- foi-e his Terra nad ex pired, Mr. Chase was elected eovernor of (hfo by 15,5o maioritv. His career in the miberua gt torial chair of this state was made historic by the Manraret Garner case. in which his excellency mvrat halstead n'fuse? to surrender a woman who had fled from bondage. This act endeared the gover nor to the Aoolitionists, who were now mas ters of the situation in Ohio. WThen Lincoln was elected president. Sir. Chase resigned his seat tn the V nited State) senate to accept the treasury portfolio. To Salmon V, Chase belongs the credit for the establishment of the present system of national banks. He was the father of that currency, and by his judicfons course at the hour when the nation's credit and honor were put to the severest test he won the confidence of capital and the gratitude of he succeed ing generation. Mr. Chase resigned his im portant trust in IH64, owing to some slight difference of opinion between himself and President Lincoln in regard to a New York appointment, but the president had so much confidence iu his secretaiy that he appointed him to the office of chief justice of the supreme court of the United States to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Chief Justice Taney. Once, when speakiug vi Chase, President Lincoln said : 'Of all the great men that I have ever known, Chase is equal to about one and one-half the best of them." The confirmation of the distiiigushed statesman, lawyer and financier was made immediately upon his name being sent in. Dee. 0, !Hn4. Here the political career of .h In ion Y. Chase virtually terminated. He was hemvforth devote! to his duties, but he continued to have pronounced convictions on all party questions, and it is quite certain that he never alwndoned hop of being president. Tlie domestic life of the dead jurist was un usually varied. He was three tunes mar riedthe first time, March 4, 14, to Kuth erine tramiss, of New York city, who died Dec. HI, 15. One child, a girl, was born ot this union, who only live I five years. His second matrimonial venture was made Sept. ., IN-?., wlien he wedded Anna Eliza Smith, who was a Cincinnati uirl. She died in this city Sept, lit, is;,. f the three children which the second wife bore her btislttud only one child lived to mature yenrs, the gifted and beautiful Kate Chase Spranue, who was a ktiding figure in the best society. Chief Justice Chase was married the third time NovnntftT , 1M', to Sarah B. D. Lud low, of Cincinnati, who Iiv1 only four years. She had two childivn, one of whom, Jane Ralst4m. is the wife of William S. Hoyt, of New York City, and the other died in infancy. During the thirty-three remaining years of his life, after the death of his thin! wife, Mr. Chase remained a widower. He outlived all his brothers and sisters, and no male descend tuit of the family is alive. , As secretary of the trvimry and chf.f iu tice Mr. Chase ovprtaxetl his strength. He was an incessant toiler, and m lstV he began to feel a weakness which djl not at first 4larmhim. in the following year his situa tion was decidedly worse.

Father Hiennan, M ho Broke His Vos of Celibacy, in a Irlona-oery. New York, Oct. 15. Father Sherman, the Roman Catholic priest who broke his vow of celibacy and married Tillie McCoy, a pretty Brooklyn girl, is now in a monastery at Phil adelphia, washing floors, cleaning windows, and doing other menial work as an evidence that he has thoroughly repented of his diso bedience. Mrs. Costello, a rich widow of Brooklyn, about 50 years old, has been a sort of motlier to Father Sherman, and took so much interest in him that when he was Jed astray she fell ill. A few days ago she received a letter from the disgraced priest, saying how sorry he was (hat he bad offended her and begging $1,000 a! once ttiat he might enter a monastery and do penance for his sin. He telegraphed her seftTal times, and she Anally advised him to commit the vicar-general of Philadelphia. Ho did so, and the result was that Bishop Laugh lin re fused to send Sherman any money, but of fered to jay his expenses in the monastery. About a fortnight ago he sent his wife ba -k to her mother and be has since then been in the monastery. A Salvation tat Uun Out of Town. Fueeport, Ills.. Oct 15. -Will T.

A Proposed Burvan of Colored Knights Aid To Be Sent to Locked Oct Employe The ChU-ago Pork rackera' Strike Materially I nrlianned Minneapolis Switchmen's Strike. Richmond, OA 15 -WedmsdaT afternoon the Knights of Labor rtmventipn made two oraees out of that of sw-retary-rrvasurer and elected Charles H. Litt-hman seeretary and rredenck turner treasurer. Thunniay the convention met at K oVlor-k in tho morning to consider the question of sending aid to the locked-out cotton-workers at Agusta, Ga. ; the curriers and tanm-rs ut Halem and reabody, Mais., and the lournyv- men plumlwrs iu New York city. The gen eral assembly had already voted that money should ba appropriated for their relief. It was resolved that the sum of Jlo.dUO should be devoted to this purpose, $5,U00 in each of the caies, and that further sums be sent as nmled. Mr. Powderly held a conference at Ford's hotel Wednesday night with fifteen or sixteen colored delegates to the general assembly. They represent tlie color1 assemblies of the knights of Labor of Virginia, ' Georgia, Florida, Mississippi anil other southern states. The object of the conference was the forma tion of a bureau of eolored knights through out the southern states for the purpose of procuring accurate statistics relative to the condition of the eolored people and their re lation to white laborers wherever they are employed together. These statistics are to comprise everything in connection with the hours of labor, the treat ment they receive from their entployers. their wages, tlie cost of hvuig, etc. It is proposed alw) to learn whether they receive the full hlierty and rights to which they are legally 'ntitled. Mr. powderly said, however, m sptaking of the conference ami its object, that the question of social equality is ivt one f the objects of the bureau. Its object is to simulate the colored people to work for their own elevation. The delegates he met were bright, intelligent men, who seemed well fitted to aid iu improving the condition of their race. BOTH SIDES DETERMINED. No Chana-e in the Situation at the l'nion Stock Yards, l'hlcai;o. CmcAfio, Oct 1 5 No change in the situ ation in Packingtown was olwervable Thurs day morning. A feeling of disappointment at the failure of the pai fcvrs Wednesday to keep the aKsipiation for a conference pre vailed, and it was the gentral Itelief tliat tha policy of tlie employers was indicated in the avoidance of a meeting at which the ulti matum of the men couM be considered and a ilefinite statement- of the packers' position obtained. The men are resolute in their ad herence to the eight -hour schedule, irrespect ive of the question of pay. The packers, to m-.ige by what can be learned from the ex- pres-sions of individufils, are just as deter mined to consider no proposition but the terms upon which the men will return to work on a ten-hour basis. The interest Ulldoulitedly centers upon the house of Armour. He is rapidly gathering a force of men together, with which he is said to be alKtut to commence hog killing under nnkcrton protection.

STEFBEHS C0DB1H I am first cousin of the, late Ex-Gov ernor Alexander II. Stephens, and nave been postal clerk on dillcrent railroads since 1868. For ten years I have been a sufferer from a cancer on mv race, which grew worse Until the discharge of matter became profuse and very offen sive. I became thoroughly disqustcd with blood purifiers and pronounced llii in humbugs, as I bnd tried many without relief. Filially I was induced to use B. B. B. which was about ibu 1st of February, and continued its use until the latter part of April. The offensive discharge de creased at once and the hardness around the cancer disappeared. It improved my general health and I rapidly gained fjesb and strength. The discharge gradually decreased and the cancer became less and less in size until nothing remains except a scar to tell the tale of a once danger ous cancer. All who have seen me since I have commenced the use of B. B. B. bear testimony of my great improvement, and the scar on my lace shows that it cured the cancer. I find Ihnt B. B. B. comes squarely up to what it is recom mended, and I cannot say too much in praise of this wonderful medicine. I have tried them all, but B. B .B. stands at the top as a blood purifier. The above is copied from the Athens (Ga.) Banner- Walthman, being the vol untary language of Mr. James A. Greer, "Mr. Greer is an honeft, upright citizen of Athens, who bad a bad cancer, and bis numerous friends thought that be could not live very long, a9 the cancer was gradually sapping the foundation of his constitution, but now looks well aud hearty." 2&G&1H8T IB Several physicians have pronounced my disease blood poison, caused by paint or lead in the paint, but they could not cure me. Last summer I used eighteen bottles of a largelv advertised blood medi cine, which did nic no more good than so mucn water. I have used only two bottles of B. B. B. and am proud to say that I have re ceived greater benefit from them thsn from the eighteen, and am now rapidly recovering. There is no neestion ulfui the superiority uf B. II. li. over all blood remedies.. 215 Reynolds street. V. H.Woodr. Augua, Ga., April 21st, 18ij.
