The soldier's reunion at Amboy thip year was a bis success if a largo crowd, rattling speeches nnd general pood feeling make it so. .There seemed to be nn outpouring of most of tho veterans of the two counties, W hiteside and Lee, and seven U. A. K. posts were represented . The town was gnily decorated, and the people were very hospitable. At tho beautiful park, where the reunion was held, were numerous teutu for headquarters, for eating houses,and for those who remained during the entire reunion. : Ou Tuesday evening there was a rousing camp fire, largely attended, and at which Gen. Henderson delivered one of his inspiring yet sensible speeches. Remarks were made by others and there was plenty ofmusic. On Wednesday, in the morning, the boys talked over war stories, told yarns and cracked jokes. Large numbers arrived on the excursion trains from Sterling, Dixon and the east, and at noon the town was packed, the crowd being one of the largest ever in the town. A good dinner was served on the grounds, and at one o'clock a procession of all the G. A. B. posts, military companies and Keystone and Dixon bands, marched from the parktoescoit Governor Fif er from the town. At the meeting which followed Col. Byan, of Amboy, presided. There was a prayer, followed by singing by Prof. Bichard's quartette, and music by the Henderson band of Dixon. Gov. Fifer delivered a patriotic address and paid an eloquent tribute to the old soldiers., He closed his speech amid rounds of applause. The appearance of Congressman Henderson was greeted with ringing cheers. His excellent judge- ment and ability as a statesman and his efforts to represent all classes of citizens, have made him more and more popular in this district, and the old soldiers, of whom he is the especial friend, were particularly pleased to sae him. - HiH Bpeoch was received with great enthusiasm. In it he spoke highly of the record of General Logan, whom he called the greatest volunteer general of the world. A meeting of the executive committee .of the lleunlon Association was held Wednesday, and the following officers-elected:_Dr. C.-A-Griswold, of Fulton, president, and Mr. Sumnor, of Fulton, secretary.

It may. be that they thought the bill of fare so good that some parties would . commit petty orl lies so as to be Jailed, and able to enjoy the luxuries of the jail cuisine. At any rate, tho Board decided that 45 cents a day for each prisoner's board was too much, and voted that 30 cents a day be paid hereafter. The cost of board for the last fiscal year was about $1,400. The Supervisors adopted the military bill of fare, which is ample for the preservation of good health, but excluded coffee aud sugar. The prisoners will no doubt learn to love water so well, that they will all be preaching the virtues of prohibition when they are released. —Mrs. Electa E. Smith accompanied the G. A. B. boys to Amboy yesterday, and the old soldiers and the people generally greeted her on every hand most cordially and enthusiastically at the Q depot and on the train and gave her almost an ovation. Mrs. Smith was postmistress at Sterling for eight years and gave entire, and universal satisfaction while in that position, and the people remember her pleasant smile and the cheerfulness with which she attended to all the arduous duties of the office. There is scarcely a pa- ron of the office even to this day but ;hat speaks in praise of her adminls- .ration. And since that time and for ;he past eight years she has held im- sortant positions in the Oth auditor's >fllce at Washington and has just recently been promoted llrst assistant to the chief clerb, a position that no woman has ever before attained to. The GAZETTE aud the^ people of Sterling are glad of the esteem and confidence that our townswoman Is held ia by the authorities at Washington. We are jlad because Mrs. StiiitW la a deserving widow of a soldier and because she Is tfw faithful to the Interests of lllluoig in g*ueral, »au to Sterling in partk-u- J*r' ' Water has been allowed to rnn into the wheels of the electric light plaiit, nnd the wheels run as nicely M clock work. —A citizen complains that bystanders around places where workmen fire engaged; are often in the way, to tho annoyance of workmen. —The "full" force of GAZETTE poo- pie, from the proprietor to the olllce devil, are under obligations to Geo. M. Gerdes for a delicious 4.1 pound water melon. —M. J. Leahy, a bridge workman, who has been visiting here for some time, left this morning for Chicago to be married to Miss Kate Kerwin, of Clinton. —Tho Board of Supervisors certified to a tax levy of 830,000 for county expenses for next year. This is 82,000 more than last year, the extra amount being required to pay some old orders. —In a few weeks these will be a monster celebration in honor of the progress of this city. Let every store that need s it be painted up and made to look as neat as possible. There will be many visitors here then and the town should look as well as possible. —The new penstalks, from which water will be run into the engines on the Northwestern, were used for the first time today. An engine can be filled much quicker from one of them th; n from thfe water tanks formerly used. —Among the recent bookings at the Academy !of Music is Miss llattie Harvey's comedy company. This young lady will bo remembered as having been in this city about live years ago, when she gave an exhibition of roller skating. She has risen to favor in the theatrical world since that time. The Sporting Journal of this wrnk contains her picture an:l a two column account of her successes. Another fine compa- nyis Etlie Ellsler's company, which is a rare attraction. --Rev. K. Brown drove lust evening to Montmorency and performed the wedding ceremony of Mr. Herman Kaugli- man^of Stone Station, and Miss Alice M., daujhter of Mr. Charles SturU. The young lady is a sister of Elmer E! Sturtz, who is well known in this city- Mr. Kaughrnan is a rising young f.irm- er ot his town and his bride is a very highly esteemed young lady of her community. Health, wealth and happiness is what their hosts of friends wish them. They have gone to Chicago on their wedding journey. —Mayor Lawrence in another column issues a call to the citizens of Sterling and vicinity to meet in the city council chamber next Saturday evening to' arrange for the celebration of the opening of the city hall, completion of the street railway, electric lights, new depot, and inauguration o.f the building of a complete sewerage system, That celebration should be of such a character that it will draw hundreds from other towns to see our much improved city.and the whole town should be magnificently decorated for the occasion. —The Whiteside County Board of Supervisors yesterday passed a resolution in favor of Chicago as the site fur the World's fair in'1892. It was offered by V-S. Ferguson, Esq., of this city, and passed with a rush. It is as follows: Resolved, That inasmuch as the City of Chicago, as a great commercial metropolis, is nearest to the center of population of our nation, and from it may be seen to tlie best advantago, our preut agricultueal, manufacturing and commercial resources and development, and in it, as a, city, may be seen the most marvelous, exponent of human energy ever witnessed on this or any other continent, and within its borders the multitudes may be entertained with ease and comfort; We, the Board of Supervisors of Whiteside County unqualifiedly prefer it as the location for *" • Exposition In the year selection of liimily pews will , t .

E. Gorham, the Lena forger, whom he placed in Sheriff Timms' charge. About tw.o years ago Gorham conducted a photograph gallery in Lena, and .while there he forged the name of Mrs. Taylor, his mother-in-law, to a note for several hundred dollars and presented it at General Waite's bank, where it was promptly cashed. Gorham then left for parts unknown. Sheriff Timms has baen on the fellows track ever since, and engaged Van Arnold to assist him. as it was impossible for the Sheriff to leave his duties here to follow the fugi tive. Van Arnold has traced Gorham through most every state in the union and not long ago he telegraphed to Sheriff Timms that Gorham was located in St. Paul. The grand jury was in session at the time, and that body indicted Gorham for forgery and Sheriff Timms at once telegraphed Van Arnold to bring Gorham to Freeport. He will no doubt be tried at this term of court. The Urst hundred persons buying a reserved seat (200) for "Fanchon" nex Monday evening will be presented with a ladies ticket, free.
