AMMT DAILY TKLE6RAPH. BE W. T. MORTON, Cut, Third nnd Pinna Street*, Alton, 111, 8ATUUDAY EVE., APKtL 10. THE Democrats baring made no nomination for Mayor the members of tliat organization aro loll tree to voto for whom thoy please without impair* tng their parly allegiance. RK-INTKBBEU.—The remains of Mr. John Booth were brought hare from Nevada on the train this morning, and Ivero re«intorred, "about It o'clock, ot the Upper Alton cemetery. Tho bear- era were; Messrs, Geo. D. JIayden, C. W. Milnor, II. C. G. Moritz, D. It. Sparks, P. L. Butts, II. It. Phlnney, members of the Masonic ortler.lp which deceased belonged. —.———~—— f » "*A STIHKE--The employes at the Stone Crusher, to the number of 48, Struck yesterday for an advance of 26 cents a day each. The quarry men have - been getting $1.60 per day, the laborers $1.26. The company refuse to pay tho advance demanded, consequently operations have ceased for ihe present. It is surmised that the most of the men are willing to return to work but are influenced otherwise by a few ringleaders. MR, John Robinson, of East Gloucester , Mass,, formerly of Alton, celebrated tho 81st anniversary of his birth on the 4th inst., by inviting a party of old friends and neighbors to a gathering at his borne. There were present 19 persons whoso average age was 81 years and 8 months. The company was very pleasantly entertained by the host and bis family. Mr. Kobinson'a old friends in Alton will also bo glad to hear of bis good health and prosperity. ____^__ i GEORGE WM. CURTIS thinks that the Democrats will have to renominate Cleveland, but that ho will get beaten at the election because of Democratic disaffection. The eminent mugwump also expresses Uio opinion that (Maine will be beaten if nominated. This looks a little inconsistent, but a mug- wump never bothers about logic. But If Cleveland and Blame aro nominated, and both are defeated, as Mr. Curtis says will be tho result of such a contest, perhaps he will bo good enough to tell us who will be elected. THK Democrat. wants particulars as to who compose tho "dark lantern cau» ous" who are pushing! Joesting for Mayor. Well, tho Democrat can toll, 11 It wishes, and it is a sad thing for an honest man, like Mr. Jousting, that he has fallen into such hands. With tho best intentions in the world what ' could he accomplish for the city if put into office by such supporters? The progressive business Democrats look at tho matter in this light and aro supporting Mr.M'L'ike for Mayor. Looking at the situation as regards its own business interests the Democrat should fall into hue and support M'PiKe also. Tim friends .of certain enterprises are expressing tho fear that Mr. M'Jflko, if elected, ' will organize a war against such enterprises,or take advantage of his position to manifest hostility to them. Mr. M'Piko isn't that sort of a man. He will be Mayor of the whole city. He will, of course, see that laws and contracts are.oxeou'.od as ho finds them, but there won't be any trouble to any one in getting along with him so long as the laws are complied with.' He didn't' bring himaolf forward in this movement and has no enemies to punish. X Base Ball Clmmplonihlp. In the contest for "the championship ot tho world" between the Chicago baseball olub and tho St. Louis Browns, tho former have thus far beftten tho latter four times out of six. Three more games remain to bo played next Ooto- bor. Should tho Chioagos win one of those throe, they will secure tho ahum* ship honor. Tho Browns will have to win tho throe games to secure the championship. Repeal the Law. It is every day becoming more evident that the now Inter-Stato Com- moruo law is a very grave mistake. It is a sevoro embarrassment to many of tho mercantile and other business interests^of tho country by increasing tho cost of transportation and by its con• fusing effects on eonoriU trade. The railroads tiro not tho chief sufferers; the commercial and industrial trades /have to bear the brunt of tho unfortunate • ' now order of things.— (Jhicai/o Journal.

Ho was the property of Judge Hugging ot Bunker Hill.who sold him abwut 1802 to Lawyer Rico of this city, who, after tho war, sold him to Mr. A. N. Hill, of Marietta, Ohio, then post sutler at Alton.

At his death "Old Jack" bad attained the venerable ago of 31 years, but hud not outlived his usefulness. LITBIURT—There was a largo atton dance at tho C.

A capricious appetite, heartburn, puzzling nervous symptoms, increased action of the heart after eating, sinking in the abdomen between meals, and flatulence after, are among the successive Indicia of this harrasslng complaint. Two things only are needful for its removal, A resort to Jlostettor's Stomach Bitters, and perslitonceln its use. Those remedial measures being adopted, a cure is certain. Taken Immediately before or oftermeals,this great stomachic promotes secretion of the gastric Juice, the natural solvent of the food. The nervous ahd bilious symptoms conso- quont.upon olu'onle indigestion disappear, as the complaint gradually yields to the corrective and invigorating influence of the Hitters, Appetite returns, sleep becomes more relreshing, and as a sequence, the body is efficiently nourished, muscular power increases, and the mind grows sanguine, Use the Bitters for chills and fever, ami rheumatism.
