A "semi-pfficiai" letter from St. Petersburg is published at Vienna, which represents that Russia • considers war between Germany! and France as inevitable, during which it will seize the Balkan country. * The letter furtheis says that Russia will so far interfere in the anticipated Franco-German war as to prevent the conquest of France by Germany. At the .meeting of the Illinois Department Grand Army of the Republic, at Rock Island, the action of President Cleveland in vetoing the Dependent Pension bill was condemned, and members of Congress were asked to pass the measure over the veto. A tribute to the late Gen-' eral Logan was adopted. Captain A. C. Sweetzer, of Bloomington, was elected Department Commander, and Springfield was chosen as the next place of meeting. Capt. W. W. Lowdermilk, a well known and highly respected citizen of Sangamon county, and late postmaster of the town of Auburn, died at his home in that place Thursday morning. Capt. Lowdermilk was a gallant soldier of the late war, and as a member of the 114th Illinois, participated in the disastrous affair at Guntown, Miss., where he was wounded and captured. As a result he lost an arm, besides receiving a shock to his health from which he never recovered, and which finally resulted in his death. Free Trade.
