This was the Say set by Judge Nelson Ior the settlement ol the election contest between E. Moffett and R a HOI, who were nval candidates for supervisor in Blue Mound township in April last. The recent investigation and bearing in the county court resulted in a tie, Judge Nelson deciding that each candidate received 223 votes. He then ordered that both Hill and MoSett should appear in the county court to-day and decide the matter by casting lots. Mr. Hill was in attendance, but Mr. Moffett was not. His attorney, W. O. Outten, represented him. In the absence of Mr. Moffett, Judge Nelson selected J. W. Brown, of Friends Greek, to decide the contest by drawing from a closed book four slips of paper, on oneof which was written "Supervisor," the others being blanks. The slips were, placed in the book at random, no one knowing in what order the supervisor slip was placed. The Judge had made a note that the first slip should be for Hill, the second for Moffett, the third for Hill and the fourth for Moffett. The first two elipe drawn were blanks, but the third had the word "Supervisor" written on it, and accordingly Mfc Hill was declared the supervisor for Blue Mound township until the next April election. The arrangement was perfectly satisfactory to both attorneys, and the drawing was witnessed by about ten persons. Mr. Hill was not present when the lots were oast, and did not know how the drawing was conducted until informed by Deputy Clerk Skelly. The costs of the contest have been assessed against Mr. Moffett. They will foot up about 8150. The Circuit Court. This is the last day of the June term of the Macon county circuit court.

The adjourned meeting of the Young Men's Republican Olub will be held on Tuesday night at Guards' Armory, when the committees on uniform and headquarters will be ready to report. The members will also consider the proposed Deoatur excursion to Indianapolis to visit the next president. The permanent headquarters for all the Republican olubsjwill be in the north room of the Gallagher Block, first floor. It is as good a location aa can be had at this time. Possession can be secured before August 1st. There is not the least danger that California will be lost to the Republicans this year. Voters in the golden state are fully alive to their interests. To that state the success of Mr. Cleveland and his policy would mean a loss of $2,000,000 or more yearly in the value of wool alone, besides wine, nuts and other products. For example, showing the sentiment, a Riverside fruit farm displays in its show the motto, "We have good raisins for supporting Harrison and Morton." Governor Porter, of Indiana, is the man who presented General Harrison's name at Chicago. Porter is a power in Indiana. In 1880 he was elected governor of the state by a majority of over seven thousand, which is an unusual majority for any candidate to receive in Indiana. It is believed that with Porter's name on the state ticket for governor, and General Lew Wallace for lieutenant governor, Republican success in Indiana would be assured. GBOCND was broken this afternoon for the new opera house. Came to Blows. This morning before 8 o'clock the office ot the St. Charles Hotel was the scene ot a lively episode, in which the landlord, A. Wait, and the tenant, James Glazebrook, participated. The cause of the altercation is unknown, but the talk ended in blows and the ejection of Mr. Wait by Glazebrook from the office. Good for Btaley. Harry Stoley, the Docatur pitcher, now playing a brilliant engagement with the Pittsburg club, shut out the Bostons yesterday, the score being 4 to 0 in favor of the smoky city boys. Boston got but three hits off Staley, all singles. Pittsburg got nine hits off Madden, one being credited to Staley. He made one run and no error. In the afternoon Golvin shut out the Bostons 6 to 0, the bean eaters getting but one.hit. All of Harry's Deoatur friends are watohing his career with interest, and rejoice over his success. He will be n "§10,000 bnte" by and by. In this connection it is proper to direct the attention of the Indianapolis team to Staley and Krock, both star pitchers. Had Indianapolis hearkened to Manager Al. Morgan of this city, both Krock and Staley, with Jimmy Burns, left fielder for the Omohos, might have been signed by Indianapolis and put that team up near the top of the race. Mr. Morgan is an old ball manager who is quick to size up the good and bad points of a player. THE CHUBCHES TO-MOBBOW. C. B.

The Charleston lynching affair is to be probed to the bottom. It is alleged that Miss Bumgartner, whom William Moore assaulted, ia a lewd character and that Moore was simply murdered by the mob that took bun from the Charleston jail and strong him up to the tank. A Mattoon citizen says that many of the men who engaged in the banging are known, and that when the special grand jury meets on August Bth, a score or more of indictments will be found. Judge Hughes will hold the jury in session until every guilty man is indicted. It is not denied that Moore and the woman were together on the night of June 23d, when she arrived at Mattoon at midnight from Effingham on her way to Shelbyville to visit her uncle. It is now known that the woman is a female ot bad character and nearly 20 years of age. The feeling againsljMoore, who was a colored Republican, was intensified by the trouble he hod had a few days before with a negro named Hoffman, who is a loud talking Democrat at Mattoon. The Charleston and Mattoon people assert that the lynching was prompted largely by political feeling and that the bum element of both towns engaged in the assault on the jail. The people now agree as to the bad character of the woman, and the lynchers themselves acknowledge they did wrong. Several of the ringleaders will probably confess, in the hope of escaping severe punishment. The Mattoon and Charleston officials are all on the watch for men who may skip out. They will not be lost sight ot and will be quickly nabbed when indicted. One ot the lynchers is said to be an ex-convict who ·was sent to prison for an outrage committed Borne years ago. He was in the front of the mob. This investigation will be an innovation in criminal prosecution in Illinois. As far as known no one has ever been indicted or prosecuted for lynching a man. Hon. Horace 8. Clark is counsel for the widow of the murdered man and will bring civil action against the responsible participants in the mob for damages to the amount of 85,000. All of the lynohers had handkerchiefs over their faces, but their identity will be discovered by the systematic investigation that has been adopted. A Vacation. Rev. W. H. Prestley has been voted a vacation by the Session of the Presbyterian Church until September 1st. This acceptable rest during the hot months was unsolicited by the pastor, and it is therefore more highly appreciated. -However, while he is in the city, Rev. Prestley will preach every Sunday morning when it is not too torrid. PERSONAL MENTION. Dr. N. H. Henderson, of .Chicago, is at the St. Nicholas. Charles H, Tyler, of Chicago, is in the city. Hon. Wm.

Aston, the well- known New Yorker, Dr. Henry Barnard of Hartford, Conn., a fine study in life o a handsome English girl.and a handsome picture (life study) of Albert Victor Prince Edward of Wales.

FOWBBB ft HAWOBTH. Was Ho Shot? When W. E. Davis, a tenant on the Chew tana in Wheatland Tp., came to the ·sty to-day, he was told that his brother, George Davis, had been shot and killed n a gambling room in Indianapolis a few days ago. There are no particulars of the alleged shooting, but Mr. Davis will telegraph to the authorities at Indianapolis to learn whether the story is true or false. William knows that Geo. ros in Cincinnati less than a month ago and that he must have had at least one thousand dollars in his possession. If ie was shot it was for the purpose ot robbery. Davis has been traveling for an Omaha wholesale house. The Camp Meeting. The crowd at Oakland Fork lost night numbered several hundred, Rev.

Minnie Robbies to Frederick Nientker, uit claim to a tract of land in 11,15-- il.OO, Lord Scully's Lands A telegram from Springfield states that landlord Scully is about to sell his Illinois holdings. He owns 4,000 acres in Jangamon, 15,000 acres in Logan and 0,000 acres in McLean and other coun- ies, in which he has for several years 'list carried on the Irish rock-renting ystetn. Lost year two bills were intro* .need in the legislature looking to the xtirpation of Allin Scully and his sys- em. The measures passed after a hard 'ght, and were at once approved by the governor. Under the provisions of these icts alien land owners were bound to iispose of their realty within sis years, under penalty of forfeiture, unless, in he meantime, they became citizens of he United. States. Scully's American epresentative is now preparing to sell all the land owned by him m Illinois. t comprises some of the richest farming and in the state. Scully also has enormous tracts of land in Nebraska and Lansas where the same system of rack- renting is pursued. A telegram from Lincoln is authority or the statement that thero is not the slightest foundation for the above story, and that the Scully lands will not bo sold.

Dr. Honser at Lincoln has a historical mad-stone in his possession, a stone that s said to cure the bite of a mad-dog. The Lincoln Monitor thus describes it: Our reporter has always heard of the madstpne, and bus always had a great curiosity to see one, and this morning his eyes stuok out like warts on a dog when ie was shown the precious and priceless stone. It is about two und one-half metes long, and is lound nnd about the size of a cob. It is filled with little pores or cells like unto a honouoinb and is very light. The stone whon applied, if ihere is really any poison iu the wound, will adhere closely until the cells are illed with the poison and then it drops off. It is then put in sorno warm water and the poison allowed to soak out, when it is again applied. These proceedings are kept up till the stone falls to stick and the poison is all out. It is good for ill mad-dog bites, snake bites and all bites from poisonous animals. The stone was considerably larger than it is now, trat during its long stay with the family (eighty years) it has been broken and several small but precious pieces lost. Mr. Houser says the stone has been in use over eighty years, but he has not had it all that time. It ia the only madstpne within a radius of thousands of miles and we are informed there are only o few in the United States. MARRIAGE licenses were issued today to William 8.

"HOME COMFORT "FURNACES, NO GAS, Wrought Steel, No Dust, Malleable Iron, Veil Little Fuel, No Leaky Joints. No ONE can say that the time was not ripe for' a new furnace. The days of brittle, porous, cast iron furnaces are numbered. In even branch of manufacture cast iron is being driven out by wrought iron and steel. Every bridge that goes down in a wreck of lives and property is found to have cast iron members, fcyery bursting cannon which slays its friends rather than its enemies is made of cast iron. **enr leaky furnace which poisons a household with its noisome gases is found to be made of the same cheap, unreliable material. Improved methods of manufacture have made steel and iron plate, of first quality, less expensive than cast iron formerly was, and it is plainly 11 accord with progress in other directions that there should be progress both in design and the material of furnaces for wanning our homes, churches and schools.
