The leyi-lative canvass is in a very
peculiar and complicated condition in
this district at the present wiiting, demo
cratically speaking. The opposition to
Mr. John T. Kenworthy, the regular
democratic nominee, among the democra
cy of Henry county, yesterday culmina
ted in an open revolt, in an official sene
at least. The Henry county democratic
committee met at Cambridge to discuss
the senatorial and legislative question,
and two members of the senatorial com
mittee. Messrs. L. C. Blanding and Wm.
McEniry. conferred with them that is
they were present at the meeting, but the
bulldozers of Henry county ran things
to suit themselves. After a strong de
bate, and notwithstanding the protes
tations of the Rock Island gentlemen, the
county committee of Henry adopted the
Rewired, That we approve and recom
mend for the suffrages of the democrats
of Henry county, the senatorial and leg
islative nominees of the convention held
at Orion, namely: Marx I). Ilauberg, for
smator. and John T. Piatt, for represen
tative. This is an open declaration of war up
on Mr. Kenworthy by the democracy of
Henry. Whatever influence the county
oominittee wields will lie cast for John
Piatt. This is coutemplible, ungenerous
and unprincipled, and can but redound
to the discredit of the democrats of that
c lunty. They do not fuht Mr. Ken
worthy on personal grounds, however.
They charge tiieir grievances lo the dem
ocratic party of Rock Island county.
The sore-headed leaders over in Henry
want to chastise the democrats of this
county for a fancied wrong, and they
imagine this is their golden opportunity,
and Mr. Kenworthy is to he the victim.
The Allocs is glad the Henry county
men have shown their hand, even if They
have degraded themselves in the eyes of
all true deui'jrrats. We know where lo
place them now, and Mr. Kenworthy and
his friends will act accordingly.

William H. Ttrece?
As one who was among the tirst to re
spond to the call of our country for sold
lers to put down the rebellion, and
among the very last to leave the field, I
teel thut I Lave a right to advise my fel
low soldiers as to their best interests. I
have always been a radical republican.
and am the same to-day, and expect to
live and die in the front ranks of the par
iy But we as soldiers have great inter
. sts at 6Uke. We have claims to look
i.flt-r; and if we have not we know of
uiauy who have; and the best way lo
leach the departments is through the
member of congress from our district,
provided the member is in sympathy with
mm- administration, otherwise there is no
one to try lo t fl'ict anything through hi
Mr. Neeee has shown himself the true
: i ml to the soldier by personally work
ing up a great many claims to a success
I ill issue. He has had experience of two
terms and is thoroughly aeuuatnted with
:M the routine busruess uf the pension
othee. Being on the committee on inva
lid peusions, and chairman of the sub
committee for Illinois, he has full author
iiy to examine personally all evidence
hied, aid to recommend and demand
special legislation where it may be neccs-
saty to secure favorable action on deserv
ing claims. No soldier or widow, or or
phan of a soldier, ever applied to him in
vain for assistance in pressing their claims,
and he has been successful in a large ma
jority ot the cases he has called up, and
his services have always been given free
ly and without regard to the political af
filiation of the soldier. Many of us
who have had our claims drag alone for
weary years have reason to thank him for
getting them passed upon and always alt
lowed; and now, when we need help the
most, shall we defeat him and send up a
new man whose influence with the depart
ment would not be sufficient to get a
claim harried up in the lcaslT

MB m! H set tK; wn? eei sup w
The majority of pension claims that were
easily proven have been passed upon, but
there are many thousands yet fully as de
serving that are "hung up" on account
of some technical point that can not be
proven for some reason, perhaps, the
witnesses are dead or cannot be found.
These require special work, and perhaps
a legislation will be required to overrun
some of the absurd decisions of the vari -ous
commissioners and clerks who have
set themselves up as judges of the law.
We need a friend at the front, and Mr.
Neeee has so far shown his friendship by
his sci ions, and we will further our inter
ests if ws stand by him. . . .
Personally I have nothing to gain by
advocating the return of Mr. Neeee to
congress as my pension was allowed long
before he was a member of the house. I
have watched him closely since he has
be&n Ih-ITtj, nd speak my sentiments
wln I aislrl1 that from my knowledge of
hrsorirs(''!'ii-the past I feel safe in advis
ing my soldier friends not to oppose his
re election. I do this entirely unsolicit
e3 ami wlthoutlne desire or hope of any
reward other than tis?that e will, if
elected, still help to push all deserving
In conclusion I wish most emphalically
to state that I do not champion the cause
of (he Democracy. I do not for a mo
ment endorse the administration or any
part of it. I know Mr. Neeee and be
lieve him to be thoroughly honest and a
friend to the soldiers, and that he will
help us. What his war record is. nr
what he has done in the past, does not in
the least affect us now. What we want
is present help, and if Mr Neeee can do us
more good at Washington than any other
man, why then let us send him back.
A UOOD THINK TO DO.

It iH Hoped.
Some serious individual asked once if
life was worth living, and the answers to
the question have been many and diverse,
but one of the most pungent responses
was: ' It depends upon the liver." The
point would have been lost but perhaps
the prosaic truth would have lieen pre
served intact if the answer had been: "It
depends upon the digestion." One of
the most critical times in a man s life is
when, without chart or compass, be sets
sail upon troubled sea of city restaurant
life. It is an interesting occupation
this diurnal dining of ours and it seems
to lose none of its prestige as the years
come and go. Whether it be a sorry
crust or a costly spread it matters not for
the hour if appetite is king; but. for the
future, each man should be on his guard,
and when it comes to what he eats then
put prudence and intelligence on picket
guard and challenge every comer.
Our Chicago people are good livers.
Our climate is a rare appetizer, and, bid
ding dyspepsia seek a more congenial
clime, your Chicago man or wo
man eats well, and heartily, and ju
diciously, and is none the worse for
it. But there are many men and wo
men who live too far from home, or
are too busy at the noontime hour to
go home, or that prefer for any number
of reasons to live at the restau
rant. The restaurants in this city, as a
whole, are not what they should be, not
what they could be, not what the patrons
ought to demand. The city is lamenta
bly behind in this respect. More money
could be made, more satisfaction could
be experienced, more stomachs could be
relieved from risk if the restaurant keep
ers of Chicago would resolve to pre
sent better bills, cleaner appurtenances,
swifter service, more wholesome cook
The day w ill come when the maynifi
cent opportunities in the line uf game
and fish, Iruit, farm products and meat,
which this county offers, will find ample
results in a better class of restaurants
than the city now has.
The New York Worlil, in reply to a
favorite declaration of the supporters of
war duties in time of peace, that "if the
tariff is to be revised it must be revised
by its friends rather than by itscnemies:"
Well, the tariff has been tinkered and
revised by its friends, the extreme pro
tectionists, three or four tim'S since the
close of the war, and what has been the
result? The schedule of dutiable articles
still includes over 4,(MH) items. The aver
age ad valorem duty last year was over
4t per cent, which is about 2 er cent
less than the highest rate of the war per
iod, and nearly 4 per ceut. mere than it
was before the last "revisiou of the tariff
by its friends" in The amouut of
revenue received from duties last year
was $13,000,000 greater than was collect
ed in 18S6, when the war taxes.were at
their highest point.
It thus appears that the "revision of
the tariff by its friends" has neither ma
terially lessened the taxes nor reduced
the revenue. It is not high time to have
a revision that will revise, and a reduc
tion that will reduce?

W'itiuii the past two months several prom
inent persons have given select dinner parties
at the Chinese restaurant in Itlott street,

formerly rajieriutendunt of the imperial ar
seuiil at Tsin-Tsin, cost Fulls fliiO. There

men, liirdn nests, sharks' tins, driwl 1 trusts,
bamboo sprouts and smoked and pn,ssed nits
from tbe -Celestial shores are said to have
leen on the hill of fare. The commodore
wuxed enthusiastic in praise of the rats. Ho
has lived nearly twenty years in the Chinese
ornpire. He says that Americans have very
little idea of the care taken by the Chinese in
racing rats for the market. They are taken
from the nst when young, and brought up
on a diet of milk and rice. A delicate air
planti: fed to them for a week before they
are killed, wtiieh imparts to the nwh an ex
quisite llavor. To um the commodore'
words, '"The dish i as far suiwrior to a
squirrel pot-pie as a tig is to a jiaw paw." Ho
puppies were served at the Falls dinner, to
the apparent disappointment of his Chinese
puestti. The wines and liquors wore of
Celestial brewing und distilling. The dinner
wound up w iUi copious libations of rice rum,
which wound up the intellects of four cf th
guests. One, a noted shipbuilder, wound up

A great name is the condensed essence of
years of toil. It represents hard work in a
garret days of hunger perhaps and hours of
utter desair. A II through years of uurecog
nition the artist bas toiled on. At some period
there conies the turning point. Perhaps the
exhausted frame gives way and the unknowii
toiler sinks into a nameless grave, jMrhaps h
utrikes an idea, works it out, and the pictnra
commands the attention of the world.
When the change comes it is like the wave
of a magician's wand. Pictures that the
artist could not get a dinner on are eagerly
sought for by the dealers. Wealthy sitters offer
anything for a portrait, and his brother
artists, still at the bottom of the ladder, gaze
up and say, "Look at that fellow. He can't
point, yet everybody is running after him;"
the public thinks what a lucky dog heis, and

Where there is one fortune made now there
