Rev. Father JansseiToflioiatod, assisted by other clergy of the diocese, a colored Priest from Quinoy being amonpthe number. The sermon, on the life and character, of the deceased Bishop, was preached by Rev. Father Zweissler. The music by the choir was appropriate to the sad observance and unusually fine. The altar and Bishop's throne were draped in black. SOME of our citizens assert that the "Central Missouri will not be built, because no such road can afford to ignore St. Louis." There might be something in this objection if the Directors of the road had any intention of "ignoring St. Louis," which they have not. They will run solid trains from Kansas City to St. Louis, crossing at Alton, and using the I. & St. L. track between here and St. Louis. They will have a route between Kansas City and St. Louis at least twenty miles shorter than the C. &A. and can contest on equal terms for any business at either terminus. They will build their bridge at Alton simply to save the expense, delay and extra mileage now required to get their east and west freight through St. Loins. That is all. They will not Ignore St. Louis, but will secure asmuohKansai City business theivus any competing rout*. , ItlVEK HETV8. Tho^steamer Spread Eagle goes to Grafton this evening.

TJwre li every reaton to be)love that If 6«r oitlien* take advantage of the op« portunltles now opening before them anier» of greater prosperity than wss •vsr know here will open «poa our •Ity. The bridging of the river here and the addition" of fnoreaaed railroad facilities will be a (treat advantage to our factories and mil induce other manufacturing enterprises to locate here. It will, »lso,',we trust inspire a new spirit of enterprise among our citlms.give them increastd confidence m the future of the city and convince them that their money properly invested at home will return them as large ft per cent, as they can obtain by "booming" mushroom towns o«t west. But there will be no increase of public enterprise and no advance of general prosperity unless we can elect a city administration next April that will inspire the confidence and respect of the people. We need a council of representative business men with broad and liberal views, free from selfish bias, capable of conceiving and carrying forward wise and judicious systems of public improvement, and of fostering all movements calculated to advance the public good. In all these essentials our present council is lamentably ^deficient. It has been the same with our coanoils for many years past. There must be a change for the better in our municipal government, or new railroads and a bridge will be of but little advantage. The fundamental principle underlying a city's prosperity is confidence in the wisdom of its rulers. As a means to this end we' trust that the Republicans of the city will do their park next April by putting a full city ticket in the field including candidates for Aldermen in every ward. Let them put forward influential men for the several positions and then trust to the Intelligence of the people for the result. This would-probably involve the adoption of the same policy on the part of the Democrats. Well and good. We have sufficient confidence in that party to say that a Democratic convention would put in the field better material for city officers than such candidates as would thrust themselves forward if no conventions were held. We have tried scrub races for years, in the election of our Aldermen, and the result has not been satisfactory. If both parties put a full set of oandU dates in the field, the best they could induce to run, the people could then take their choice and thn responsibility of a judicious selection would rest with them. If the Democrats In any ward had the geod judgment to pnt forward a better qualified man for Alderman than the Republicans, 'ne Republican would have just cause to grumble if the Democrats were suceessful. Our citizens have, for many years, tried the plan of "no polities in home elections" and it has been a flat failure. It always will be, for the reason that the men whom the citizens want and whose counsels they need will not thrust themselves forward in a miscellaneous scramble for office. But if the several political parlies call upon these men to step forward and serve the people, ask them to assume the discharge of a public trust, and pledge them their support, they will not refuse. The TELMRAPH believes, then, in "politics in looal elections" to this extent: using the machinery of both parties to bring the best qualified men into the field, and then letting the people take their choice. Tkere is no other practicable way {of securing the desired result. To say the least party nominations are better and safer than reliance on scrub races. It should always be remembered that the position of Mayor, or Alder-man, is in itself honorable. It is the filling of public trusts with unworthy men that makes the holding of office discreditable.

NOW WE DEVOTE ATTENTION TO B m b r o i deries, AND w: Goods, DIED—At 12:30 o'clock Sunday morning, Mrs. Elizabeth Sairus, aged 76 years. Though an old lady, she has been able to be abont until a week ago last Saturday whe» she fell and dislocated her hip whioh.was the principal cause of her death. She leaves a num» ber of children and relatives. The funeral took place today from the German M. E. church. VEDI. A IT all from tionldrllle. The business men of St. Louis are brought face to facs. with one of the gravest questions that has ever menaced their 'prosperity. Upon the proper solution of the terminal question rests the success of every St. Louis enterprise, whether it be individual or for the city at large. No man can sell a gold dollar, for 96 cents and prosper; and no city can afford to allow a disorimina* tion in freight charges which amounts to hundreds of thousands of dollars annually in favor of other cities, and continue to compete with those cities in the race for commercial supremacy. St. Louis has the location, the territory, the business men, and she is also educating a public spirit, all of which are in a measure commensurate with her high destiny as the greatest inland city in the Onited States, and her people are at last awakening to a realisation of the fact that they must shake themselves free from the coils of the fatal serpent that is slowly tightening its repulsive hold around the very possibilities of all that would be their glory in after years. Some realize this more fully than others, but all agree that the situation is bad enough. Some are looking for relief in Mr. Castleman's bill, which means, if passed, that railroad tracks shall be used in common by all roads that desire to enter a city. Others look for redress from the east side in the new bridge, and the Inter-State commerce bill, which they hope will 'regulate the exorbitant transfer charges from East St. LouU to this side. Public mass meetings are advocated by those most familiar with the unfortunate state of affairs.—S*. Loud Republican. CALLED TO SPONGES, for carriage and bath. CHAMOIS SKINS, large and small.

E. ohuroh was held Friday evening, January 28, at which Presiding Elder Cooper was present. After preaching an eloquent sermon, the elder called up the charge against the pastor, Rev. H. DePugh. The elder said that he desired fully enlightened upon the subject, as several stories were afloat, and ho knew the pastor to bo a man of spotless character, ;a Christian and a gentleman, than whom there was not a more exemplary man In the conference After listening to statements, the elder said that the charge was that Mrs.Toles, had beon buried without] her remain/ being taken to tho ohuroh. He found that Mrs. Eva Lewis and Kev. DePugb were the proper custodians of the remains, and that the ohuroh had no claims or jurisdiction over them. There bad been no violation of ohuroh rales at all; neither had Mr. DePugh refused to officiate at tho funeral, for he has a time sot for It. The ease was therefore dismissed and Mr. DoPugh fully vindis oated.— Champaign Iftrald. Coal. Buy your Hard and Soft Coal of H. L. Winter and got tho best.
