The democrats of the nineteenth Illi nois district have elected Judge J.R Williams to congress as the successor of Hon. It. W. Townshend, deceased. Grand old Gov.

The wholesale grocers ot St. Louis were al most unanimously in favor of the bill and are now taking active measures to absolve themselves trom a combination whir' 'M at all times been odious and The adjournment of the thirty-fltth geueral assembly, after a prolonged session which lasted oue hundred aud forty-two days, gives occasion for a cursory review of its labors a review which cannot now do more thau cover the leading features of the session. It has been declared by certain dem ocratic newspapers of the state that the failure of this legislature to adopt a certain course ot legislation had weak eued the bold of the democratic party hdou the neonle ot the stale. It has been declared by nearly all I ho ronnhllnan nnOTBDSDerB that this IUU v.. wv.. ' . assembly had proven abnormal, abor tive and false o its purposes. Both declarations are so manifestly -untrue as to convict the first named Moao r nnnrananera ol the meanest sort of selfishness, followed by cnagnn and disappointment at the overthrow of pet measures, and to convict the second class, for the thousandth time, of the iame old sin of abusing the state in wWoibJT Hve, from partisan and malicious motives. "Ifl iJiJlfirst place, the thirty-fifth gen eral assembly passed a law prohibiting grain gambling. It is a law de .iannd to secure to the farmers of this state a reasonable advantage in the natural fluctuations of the market, without unwholesome interference from those speculators who happen to hn "lone" or "short" on marginal to the output. in the second place it has passed a law to secure reform in the exercise ot the right of suffrage. The act covers the best features of the Australian system, with as Senator Major said recently of another measure "some North Missouri improvements" which !, tt ini-ftl habitation and color. The fact that this new law is yet only ap plicable to cities having over five thou sand inhabitants is in its lavor, oe cause if eleotoral reform is urgently needed anywhere it is in the larger cities, and if the law shall prove effec tual, it may gradually spread thence to cover the entire state. It was of this law Senator Vest spoke when he told the general assembly that if it had done nothing more than pass the electoral reform bill it would deserve the grati tude of the people of Missouri. In the third place the legislature en acted a law prohibiting the formation of pools, trusts and other conspiracies against public rights, and provided elaborate puuishmeuts for violation thereof. The law may not prove suf ficiently strong to accomplish all that it was intended to accomplish, but it is a good beginning, and paves the way for stronger legislation at some future day. bur i to them. .V , M reform movement, the ne- V. y . I. which was so forcibly im rti. upon the-minds of good cit . i. y the shameless republican brib er ; vf last November, has moved quite steadily on since that time. Minne sota only a lew days ago passed a law which puts the Australian system into effect in cities of 10,000 and over, and in this state the Sparks electoral re form bi.l has beeu signed by Gov. Francis; it applies to all cities of over 6,000 inhabitants. As most of the cor rupt voting, repeating aud intimida tion of employes takes place in the larger towns, this will do quite well, Ee. w. -oecially as the next ceusus will ( I Monday eve to jnto this category quite a num- soioDy of HIm 8arai,jg whlch-barely failed to 1 Haines.

Iu the fourth place, a law bas. been enacted requiring foreign building and loan associations to Hive security to the state in the sum ot $100,000 for the nrnner conduct of their business aud the lust treatment of our citizens. In the fifth place, the legislature has Dassed a law providing a unllorm ss tem for the management and coutrol of the eleemosynary institutions of the state, a measure so urgently demanded as to occasion surprise at its not being adopted years ago. This law appears to be admirably framed in all its essen tial features, and will give to the ad ministration ot the eleemosynary iu stitutlons a degree of efficiency hitherto not attained. In the sixth place, the legislature has reduced the rate of taxation levied for the payment ot Interest upon the slate debt one-half, or from one-fifth to one tenth of one per cent. It is almost needless to say tbftt this measure will meet the hearty approval of all tax payers. Iu the seventh place, a law has been enacted authorizing county courts to loan the surplus lands of the counties, to the end that a continuous revenue may be derived therefrom to the coun ties instead of to local banks, as Here tofore, and that the unseemly strife be tween banks over the county deposits may be entirely eliminated from the field ot local politics. In the eighth place,the legislature bas so changed the law governing the de posit of the state funds as to insure the enhancement of the interest on the daily balances, at the same time that it makes it possible for banks in the in terior of Missouri to secure a portion of the slate's deposits. In the ninth place.the legislature hai, alter trying for ten years to accomplish it, succeeded in putting on the statute books a law to govern the elevators ol the state, to secure lair inspection ot the larmer's grain, to guarantee to bim the weight that he actually bas in the car, and to prevent the pernicious sys tem of mixing, always to his detriment aud to the elevator's profit, a system which has robbed Missouri farmers of millions of dollars. These are the nine most prominent special enactments of the thirty-fifth general assembly, and from present in dications they are sufficient to give to i Ma wialatnre au honorable name in At Arv household iu Missouri. In ad dition, the statutes baye been revised not, perhaps, as thoroughly as they mlirht have been, but still revised aud amended where revision and amend ment appeared most urgent, and by the time the joint committee ou revis ion shall have concluded its labors, there will bo ready for publication two splendid volumes of wholesome laws laws, too, which may be sold to tbe oubllo at S3 for both volumes, instead of $5, as heretofore. It would be a work of supereroga tion to dwell In detail upon tbe legisla lion ot tbe thirty-fifth general asscin hlv. Inasmuch as a complete list of " i w bills thus far ape roved by the governor is published in this issue ot the Intelli rencer. It Is only Incumbent upon us now to add, that whenever the legisla ture of 1889 shall be seriously arraigned for alleged weaknesses and folly, there will be time enough to file a bill ot par ticulars proviug beyond all cavil or question that it earned ail It received and is fully entitled to the commenda tion of the people. Js f jf ' "., ,-r-r; a it I S past v hH3 l:i.'i ami iiinceii In IIir public ti. oo thai the fi lends of Judge Elija'j Norton kre booming bim for United States senator two years hence. The Judge is a weighty man and a sound democrat, but in a contest of heft with Senator Vest we are afraid the Judge wouldn't weigh enough to account for the uickle iu the slot. Senator George G. Vust spent sev- orul iluva til .lrftl-HOII ; 1 1 v last WCCK. The senator never looked better in liia lite. It is true that his sandy locks have turned to gray, and that a lew crow's leet ab Mil the eyes show that he is not a young as In) was when ho first came to the capitol an a member ol the leKiidaturo twenty-nine years ago and made red hot hjieeclies which cautivated tlio hearts of the boys to such au extent that I hey have n't tor gotten bim io this day. The senator la u tin In Htontur. aud a lilllu older as we reliiuiautly admit, but bis eye is as keen as ever, his complexion aud his voice are bettor than we have ever known thein, and ho really looks youuger tbau he has dono lor some years. Of course there is no serious opposition to Senator Vest's return to j tbe senate two years hence, and ii there was he would be elected just the same, so, as Missouri's senator for still some years, ho is an object ol interest to all. Like Maj. Edwards the honuBty of the man, in hi" partisauiHin as in other things, makes ior him, if au oc casional enemy, u multitude of triemls. Ou Friday of last week the senator visited the senate aud house of repre sentatives, aud in each was received with applause which could be heard throughout the entire building. Iu the senate ho said ; "I recognize tbe impropriety of any extended re marks on my part at this time I am in Jeffersou City simply for social pur poses, unless 1 include a little busiuess in the supreme court, aud I have not the slightest desire of interfering with your official work. 1 thank you for your kindness in iuviliug me to speak to you. It is a matter of sincere con gratulation to every Missourian that the slate is now progressing so rapidly and so favorably in all tbe elements that constitute greatness. Upou my return home I find on every hand the most ample evidences of wealth at once beulflcent and permanent, of the energy of tbe people of the state and the blessings of God upou their labors. From present appearances tbe people are assured that their laws are being administered without favor. I have no respect whatever for that man, no matter what may be bis political affilia tions, who, In the heat of personal or political controversy, maligns tbe great commonwealth of which we are all so proud. Missouri is in the front rank. Whatever may have been tbe mistakes of her past history, in tbe future our natural resources, wisely aud justly admintstered, will make this state what God aud natnre intended It should be, tbe greatest state iu tbe gal xy of the Union. It is not my pur pose, however, to discuss anythiug of a public character. But ou yesterday I met a prominent citizen of tbe state as I came from St. Louis aud he al luded to what he called tbe neglect of the great river which flows at the base of tbe Capitol. There has beeu much injustice done to this river, but there has been iujustice done also to the na tional congress in connection with it. The river is in its present condition unfit lor commerce. No legislation can fight against the courses of the stars. Commeree, to-day, extends from eat-t to west, not from norlh to south. It is just as inevitable, just as sure, that the steamboat must give way to tbe rail road, as that tbe old ox team of my boyhood should have given way to the Concord coach, aud that in its turn to the steam car. The Missouri river, when I was a boy, floated on its bosom 76 packets. To-day not one single steamboat is upon this river, and I was told by an old steamboatman at Hot Springs a few days siuce, a man en gaged iu buying the wreckage of old boats, that be had bought tbe last boat that bad navigated on Ibis river, ior $5,000 when it cost $50,000 to build it. Why is this? Because the railroad car takes the place ot the steamboat as an instrument of commerce. All that we can do to-day for the Missouri river, and for tbe Mississippi iuto which it flows, and their tributaries, is to hold them in such condition by Im proving as that they shall be a con servative iuflueuce aud a restraint upou the railroads; that they should be held as a menace, so that exorbitant prices should not be put upon the peo nln'a commerce. All that wo can do now in congress is to prevent the prop erty from becoming an instrumentality of harm against the property along its banks. I will uot sptiuk longer lest 1 might interfere with your duties. 1 thank you for the kind reception you have givbii me." In tbe house of representatives the sen ator seemed to be somewhat affected by recollections of his earlv years wheu he made his political debut in the name arena, lie said that as he stood in the halU of tho Missouri aiKeinbly his thoughts carried bim back 30 yearn, to the lime he represented Cooper Co. . i , m OU Hie D ior Ol Hie House, many ui his old associates had since thnt time passed ovpr to the other shore. Recol lections of luuso men who had gone were pleasant to him, notwithstanding the fact that he had often been en gaged with them in almost deadly strife. Continuing, lie said: "Let mo ask you, gentlemen ot this assem bly, if you cau, to put yourselves In my place-. Lay aside your political pr j idiues aud work harmoniously to gether for the common welfare of the greatest stale in this union Missouri. r Ani.lMiiHe.l Her career must be on- L ward unci upward, aud the man or po nartv that dares to retard her progress mnst suffer the conseqiieiir.es of his own acts. Iain tempted to say one word about the work you have done here. If you will permit me cries of "Goon! Go on!" 1 want to say that you have passed one bill at this session which, if you had passed no other, would entitle you to the ever asting gratitude of this atate. I refer to the law regulating elections." Ap ulftiiio I The senator went on to say that the greatest menace to the insti tutious of the nation was the vicious, linioraut and corrupt suffrage. It must be seen to that the voter be al lo.ved to cast his ballot free and un trammelled. He closed by Hgnii thanking the house for the receplioi accorded him. Mr. James Love, Ibe deleated republican candidate for congress in the third district, is threatened to be shorn of bis prerogative as dispenser of public patronage because tho thrifty characteristics which brought weaitn from the unusual source of the pres idency of a female seminary, appears not to abandon tho gentleman iu his very first introduction to political life. Mr. Wanamaker might not object to the use of the U. S. mails to advert'n-e tree of cost a relative's cheap clothing establishments, but he does enter a vigorous protest against defeated con gressional aspirants levying contribu tions upon presumptive postmasters by direct taxation, as it were. Hence, Mr. Love and Mr. Kubauks, both of Missouri, are just now under a polit ical cloud. Mr. Eubanks is in total eclipse, but Mr. Love is struggling to emerge from tbe gloom, by declaring he demands his expenses, only, in r.tisns where his advice and "influence'' are invoked. Mr. Eubanks demanas a graduated per centum. Mr." Love taxes only for revenue lor expenses oi influence economically administered. Mr. Love, with his platform clearly detiued, seems to bo more acceptable to Mr. Wanamaker than Mr. Eubanks. Iu tho meantime the political morals ot the post office department are being made to appear to the best advantage. THE NEW LAWS- As A bill appropriating $3,000 to erect a monument over tbe remains of the late Gov. Marmaduke, was defeated by the lower house of the Missouri leg islature last Monday. This is greatly to be regretted, as it brings a blush of shame lo the cheek of every patriotic Missourian, and is but another illustra tion of the strange perversity of that body. There appears to be no objec tion to the appropriation, but as the house and the senate were at logger beads, iu its blind intent to "get even" with the senate the lower house slaugh tered this meritorious measure among others originating in the senate with out any reference to its merit. A fu ture legislature of Missouri, an imated by more patriotic impulses, will yet do justice to the mem ory ot Gov. Marmaduke, and as far as possible,, wipe out tbe rec ord ot the present assembly. . The more repuDlicans in a Missouri legislature the longer it lasts and tbe more it costs. There have been more republicans in this legislature than in any since the adoptiou of tbe new constitution, and just as ice follows cold, spring winter, and summer spring, so the logical sequence came ot greater expense and a longer session. The way to get good legislation and to get it quickly is to leave the republi cans at home. Judge Brace doesn't believe that poker is a game ot chance. Tbe judge is a thoroughbred from Kentucky.
