Editor Banner: Thinklng perhaps you
will havo bomo room f or a f ow moro notos
about tho Sucker Stato, I will givo you a
fow Hnos. Beside being so prominontly
good agriculturally, thoro is much of his
torical and industrial intorcst within a
radius of a fow miles.
Not far across tho Illlnois river, to tho
south east of us, is Jacksonville, whioh
hasbeencalled "Tho AtboDSof tho West.'
In 1820 tho Illlnois collego, tho oldest in
tho stato, was foundod thoro.
Tho Sangamon is tho largost tributary
of tho IHinois, and on a tributary of tho
formor, noar Lincoln, is a largo farm
owned by an English lord, who reuts it
to tonants in tho English style.
At Springfleld, Lincoln's monument
nnd tho jjnomorials kept thoro aro well
worth a visit, and his homo is much as
he left it, and is opon to visitorS. Tho
capitol cost,$5,000,000,and contains inter
osting muscuras. Tho domo stands 305
foot high. Watch making is tho princi
pal industry of tho town. Tho factory,
with its out-buildings, covor 10 acros:
oight hundred mon aro employed and
they turn out four hundred watchcs a
day. Thoro aro thirteon productive coal
Shafts in tho vicinity.
East of thGfo, forty miles, is De
catur, in tho contor of tho coal fiolds, two
coal shafts being within tho city limits.
Jt is notcd as tho blrth placo of tho 0. A.
It. Post No. 1. It was organized thero
April 0, 1800. Among tho industries,
two iraportant onos are tho manufacturo
of chock-rowers (au applianco for tho
corn planters, by which tho dropping is
regulated), and hog-ringor, and Decatur
supplies tho world with them. This city,
which was uained aftor Com. Stopheu
Decatur, occupies tho geographical con
tor of tho Stato.
Following up stroam to near its sourco,
we como, in tho midst of tho broom-corn
rogion, to Champaign, tbo site of tho
Stato University.
Peoria, "tho whiskoy city," is particu
arly noted for its corn market, its brow
cries and distilories. It pays Unclo Sam
moro revonuo on distillea spirits thau
any other city in tho Unitod Statcs. It
is situated ncar tho foot of Peoria Lako,
which is somo 20 miles by 1- to 2 miles
in sizo. Tho city occupies tho sito of tho
old French fort, Creno Ccaur (broken
hearted), which was built by La Sallo in
1C80, as tho pioncer of white settloments
in IHinois.
Following up tho river to tho big bond
we como to tho town of llennopin, which,
the ante-bellum days was astation on tho
under ground railroad. In the days bo
fore tho advcnt of stoam, it was an im
portant trading post, and was visited by
Webstcr, Van Burcn and other celebri
ties. Just abovo tho town tho Ilonnepin
canal connects with tho river.
Near by is La Sallo tho terminus of the
Illinois & Michgan canal, and hcro we
ilnd tho largost zinc works in America.
Tho oro is shipped in by lail from Miss
ouri and Kontucky.
A milo below is the twin city of Peru,
sqttled mostly by Germans, whilo tho
fo'rraer city has mostly Irish.
Just across the river from tho twin cit
ies is tho mouth of anothor tributary, tho
Verrailion River, and noar tho latter aro
Bailey's Falls, about forty feot high, and
Deer Park, mado famous by Indian hun
tors. There is only ono passago to it,
tho walls in other placcs being forty to
scventy-fivo feot high.
Not far across tho Illinois river to tho
north is Buffalo Itock, another locality
that owcs its famo to tho old tirae Indian
huntcrs; thero thoy decoyed tho buffalo
onto a promontory and then drovo thom
into tho river whero they wore drowned.
Thero too are Lovor's Loap and Starved
Rock with their Indian traditions. Tho
story of the latter is that tho last romnant
of tho Illinois Indian tribo was beatcn
in a battle on the prairio by tho combin
ed forces of Ottawas. Shawnees, Kicka-
Eoos and Miamis. They rotircd to this
luff by the rivor whoro thoy thought
thoy would be ablo to dofoat their assail
ants. Ilcro thoy were besicgcd f or flf tecn
days and flnally porishcd of starvation in
sight of abundant wator 150 feet below,
and from their rotreatthoy could witnoss
the dcstruclion of their village aud their
crops. "Tho haven which they sought
thus becanio their tomb and monument."
Int082 La Sallo built Fort St. Louis on
tho summit of tho rock. A company,
who own the rock and thirty-six acres of
adjoining land, aro fitting it up for a sum
mer resort with hotol and cottages. From
a towor which surmounts tho summit ono
can get a grand view. From this tower
lloats an American flag, and au olectric
car lino will soon conncct it with South
OLtawa. Thoro is an abundaot supply
of artcsian wator thore.
On tho plain just north of tho river op
posite Starved Rock was tho big Indian
village of Kaskakia, which was flrst vis
ited by Father MaTquotto in 1054, and
thero he cstablished the flrst Indian mis
sion in the state, still continuing tho In-v
dian name, and within throo orfour years"
it was moved to tho prcsent sito of Kas
kaskia near Chester. Utica occupies tho
sito of the old JKaskaskia.
Tho flrst discovery of coal in America
was raade at Ottawa by Father llennopin
in 1008. IIo speaks of it in his diary and
locates a mlno along tho bluff near tho
union of Fox Rivor with tho Illinois.
Followinc up Fox River wo find Elgin,
notccffor its watches. Tho factory em-,
ploys 3000 or 4000 pcrsons, and turns out
400 or 500 watches a day. Thero aro also
chceso and milk condcnsing factories
which run special trains to Chicago.
The last placo I will mention is Jollet,
at which placo tho Illinois & Michigan
canal crosses tho Illinois river. Ilero is
ono of tho largcst penitentiaries built for
timo of peaco. Tho largest wiro mill in
tho stato and a steel rail plant, producing
3000 tons of rails wcekly, arolocated hcro.
Tho Jollet quarrics are notcd for build
inc stono.
The.canal is 00 miles long, chartered in
1830, and cost $0,400,000. Tho Indians
granted land from tho river to tho lako
in 1810 for tho purooso of tho canal.
' In our travels up tho Illinois Rivor wo

early French explorers.

Hokolulu, May 25th, 1801.
Editar Bennington Banner. la your
isauo of April 20th, is a lio which rcads
tnus: "That dusky relic of royalty, tho
ox-queen of tho Sandwicli Islands, has
agrced to givo a sories of lecturcs in this
country, though with misgivings as to
the finaucia) success of tho venturo.
.Ilcro is anothor chance for tho Prosident
to oxtend his aid to hor, this timo with
out a possibility of failuro. IIo might
nct as hor mastor of cerdmonics, Such a
combinatlon of nationality would bo ir
rosistlblo to tho gencral public." Tho
low sneer from yourself to tho Qucon
and Prcsidont Clovoland, seoms quito
charactcristic of tho charactor who cdits
tho Banner, thoroforo for swcct chari
ty's sako, wo pass tho blind, as wo aro
well awaro, that many of tho dovil's
trustcd agonts aro roformors and profcs
sional good mon.
"That dusky relio of royalty," has
from hor childhood bcen an honored
membor of tho church of tho samo creed
as the piratical hypocrites who with tbat
Arch hell-hound John L. Stovens with
troops from tho waiship Boston over
throw tho constitutional govornmont of
Hawaii, and again, that dusky rolio, was
courtod and f eted by tho best and f airest
of tho mombors of tliat particular church
up to tho very day of hor overthrow.
Also, "that dusky relic" at tho timo of
her overthrow, was at her own oxpenso
paying for tho board, schooling and
clothes, of 20 young nativo girls, in a
sominary counected with that church.
Andagain,"tbatdusky rolio of royalty,"
is a highly educatod and accomplisbed
lady a fair musician, whoso purso was
always opon when funds woro wanted in
aid of tho church, or to aid missions to
tho South Sea Islands. Such is "that
dusky relic of royalty," who has boon
oruolly and cowardly vilifiod by slandor
ous vipers, who wearthogarb of roligion
and who, up to a fow yoars ago, owcd
overythiug of this world's goods down to
tho very salt they ato, directly to tho
down-trodden peoplo of "that dusky
rolio of royalty." Remembor this, thou
sycophantic Banxeu man. by hook or
by crook, that dusky rolio of royalty,
will again roign supromo in allihor glory.
Ilurrah for Cleveland, and to llades
with Stovens and all puritanical doviltry.
Prosident Cleveland is a gontloman and
an honest man, and may God Almighty
blessand protect hira through lifo, and
when the timo comes for him topass in
his checks, may he pass tho portals of
St. Peter without a nitch, is the short
but sincero prayer of your humblo, ser
vant. I send you a fow from many cuttings,
that you may glean alittlo truth with ro
gard to all'airs in Hawaii nei, which
sometimcs proves wholosomo for tho
verdant youth if takon in liboral doses.
Au rovolr. James Olds.
In giving the abovo a placo in our col
umns, wo can afford to bo magnaniraous,
inasmuch as a Democratic Congress,
through its Senato, has sustained tho
Provisional govornmont and tho attltude
of tho Harrison administration. Espec
ially the late unanimous voto in tho Son
ato, sinco Mr. Olds's lottor was written,
is significant. Ex-Queen Lil. was so
religiously inclined that she proposed to
Mr. Cleveland's special omissary to drop
into a basket the heads of tho Presi
dent's "groat and good friend" Dolo and
his cablnet, a proceeding that lookshere
liko barbarism. If tho principal thinks
this the right thing to do, what may wo
not cxpect from hor adniirors liko Mr.
Olds. Wo refrain, howovor, from ari
swering our correspondent after his
kind, and quoto aportion of tho Demo
cratic majority of tho Senato Committee
on Foreigu Relations, mon after Mr.
Cleveland's own heart. Tho full report
is based npon sworn tcstiraony, the Com
mittee being favorablo to sustaining tho
actiou of Clovoland, but obliged to re
port according to tho facts as fouud.
Mr. Olds calls Mr. Stovens an "arch
holl-houud" bccauso of his action. Tho
Sonate Commttco, howovor, find, that
ho acted in lino with his Domocratic
predecessor Mr. Marcy, "and nearly
evoryouo of his successors as Secretary
of Stato;" "in his dealing with tho Ha
walian governmont his conduct was
characteriscd by bocoming dignity and
reserve, and was not in any way harsh
or oilensive. In tho opinion of tho Com
mittee, based upou tho ovidonco that ao
companies this report, tho only substan
tial irregularity that oxisted in tho con
duct of any offlcer of tho United States,
or agcnt of the Prosident, during or
sinco tho rovolution of 1803, was that of
Minister Stovens in dcclaring a protec
torato of tho United Statcs ovor Hawaii,
and in placing tho flag of our country
upou tho govornmont building in nono
lulu. No actual harm resulted from
this unauthorizcd act, but as a preco
dent it is not to be considered as boi.ig
justifled." Thero is very little consola
tion in this for Mr. Olds, Claus Sprecclcs
or other bitter royalists. Tho finding
is that of a com'mittco composed of
Cleveland's own party and a minority of
Ropublicans, after the flag had been
democratically reraoved and tho Provis
ional government of the Sandwich Is
lands wcakeued asfar as it was iu tho
power of tho Cleveland administration
to do.
Mr. Olds's strictures upon ourselves
aro just what were to bo expccted from
semi-barbarians, with Indian blood in
their veius they aro too contomptiblo
for notice.

cspecially ono seut to propagato vcligion.
But 1 can very easily oxcuso your good
opinion of your good deeds. Ono always
likcs to thiuk they know about all thero
is to be known, on evcry subject, and I
have noticed that this is ono of the many
failings of tho Reformer. IIow strango
it is that two person's mind will run in
the samo, dircction: "judgo not lest ye
bo judged," has often como to my mind
as I haye read tho seemingly studied iu
sults that has bcen printed,from timo to
time, in the so-called Reformer, refcrring
to tho editor and propriotor of tho Ban
NEli, or some one of their faraily. I don't
know how it looks to you. Mr. Reformer,
but it looks to others as though you had
gotteu tho idea into your hoad that the
town of Bennington, with its multitude
of great miuds and capabilitios, had ov
erlooked tho one 7na$$ite (?) mind of tho
Reformer, in choosing a board of trus
tces for tho Graded school. I think when
our peoplo havo beon so blind to their
own best interests, thoy ought at least to
be guidcd by tho Roformor's opinon,
which is dcalt out so freoly without
monoy and without prico, at least. Pro
fcssor Davis and tho femalo tcachcrs
ought to bo willing to vote you a "card
of thanks" for tho goncrous way their
namos aro banded about overy week.
Thero is nothlng that will givo ono such

sorry I so inisjudgcd your motivcs. Iseo
his Satanic majcsty has yot a good mis

almost as good as Bob Ingcrsoll. Evory

Reformer, if you don'tfaint in woll-doing
perhaps some day tho town of Benning

call upon you to find a man who is abovo

Loy stoutly rcfused to tako tho monoy.
Ho had rcfused no sltuatlon on Mrs.

and ho did not object to a walk.
"Loy, lf you don't taKo that dollnr I shall

nfter long urging Loy conscntcd to tako

"Of courso," smllo the knowlng.
Wcll, lt so happencd that Mrs. Blank
dld not sccuro tho other heathen. Tho
Chlnoman who had rocommonded him
thought tho matter over and concludcd
that tho place bclonged to Loy. Loy had
flrst applicd, and Loy's cousln wns to Uvo
with Mrs. Blank's friond nearby. This
conjunction would bo good for Loy and
Loy's cousin. They would bo company for
caoh other. Conscqucntly Mrs. Blank was
lnformcd that sho could not havo Loy's
rlval. Mrs. Blank then gladly wclcomod
Loy, who hns for one ycar provcd a faith

houso. On rccolvlng his flrst month's
wagcs Loy tobk out $1, and handlng it to
Mrs. Blank sald: "I no como to you; I
takeo dollor. You fccl bad; I como to you;
I no takeo dollar. You no feel bad."
Mrs. Blank rcfused to tako back tho dol

Loy gavo mo a touch of his quallty.
When his mlstrcsshandedhlm a bundlo of

"I no can. Bclly easy. I no can."
And I rctlrcd with my dollar, agreeing
with Brct Harto that tho heathcn Chlnco

Loy has idcas as to truth also. Thoclcv

Ho has bcen tho causo of moro heartburn
