Double our population and the demand for garden truck would ncrease fifty fold, because Increased values of land would abridge the private kitchen gardens of the two places. Besides, farm lands appreciate in value u proportion as their nearest large city prowa, always. Give our two places 26,000 population, aud farm lands with- n a radius of four miles would increase ,n value at least an hundred per cent. Those nearest the city would increase five, ten and twenty fold. —Ben Shaw actually records the fact ihat there was kicking among the boys at a dance in Dlxoa a night or two since because,the room waa oold We've seen several dances In our time and never witnessed one at which ther« waa'nt kicking, whether it was warm or cold. We saw one of Klralfy'a ballet dancers in the Chicago opera house do an extraordinary amount of that exercise. He was a boy, too,—a big grown up boy; he kicked the hat off the chap dancing with him. The night was downright warm, too, funs going all over the house. Kicking ain't confined to dancing -either, good brother. We/ editors all do know that "kicking" is a quality for which human folks are as celebrated as Kentucky black mules, and unlike the mules, the human brothers kick most where there is least to kick for. We are glad to .know the Dixon boys had good cause for kicking. —We beg to assure our neighbors at Fulton that naught but the most press- Ing bualness supplemented with illness in our family would have kept us from attending the publishers and editors meeting at Fulton. If there bad been' a freight train running In the early evening, we should have been there but we could not be away from the sick bed of a wife through .the entire night It was especially our desire to be at Fulton, that we might meet and greet as many as possible of our friends in that city, the memory of whose former kindness is very precious to us. We had thought that the meeting would be postponed for a week, or two weeka and that we then could be there, And we would suggest to Mr. Baatiau the secretary and Mr. Bent the president that if a special meeting were to tw called at Fulton for next Monday week that ail of us would uttaud. We know ihst wo aro parWcalajrly dt&irooi to «t- — Judge Bailey has recently informed one of the members of the Sterling bar that he will either hold personally the February term of the Circuit Court in this county oi~ ;,..,...„.. VJ ii««u>io!»t< other jiulgr to do the same. In view of the above an attorney of this city said to the GAZETTE that It is questionable whether it is desirable to have a special election for Circuit Jud^e. It might be as well to have Circuit Judge elected at June election for Supreme Judge and thus gave the expense of another election. The GAZETTE, as will be seen by pre- viovs editions of this paper takes issue with this attorney. The expense of an election is inconsiderable; this district has • not had, in effect, but one judge for nearly a year; it needs two more. To put it off is to the prejudice of the district, which needs a home Judge badly. The GAZETTE is pleased to know that Judge Bailey thinks of us here at Whiteside, even if only at long Intervals. Governor Oglesby's plea for economy Is a new wrinkle with him If he is eager to save the State money let him recommend economy in the State board of health management and in that of the State printing. The idea of suggesting expense as an excuse for putting off a most important election in a great State like this, is ridiculous; the amount would be less than one-half a mill per capita. If the election is put off until June, it will mean that 'iullooence" ia at work and that the man who can pull the most wires will get there. Besides, it means running the thing into politics, which is reprehensible, we don't b'lieve in running politics into so important an office as this. Governor Ogleaby has the power to do as he pleases in this matter, and it is not unlikely that he will put off the election. He has no thought of northern Illinois except as a region that can poll him up votes when he is candidate for ofllce.and he is indifferent to our necessities and wishes. Although he owes his elevation to this region, he has never yet appointed a man from this section to office. His home is in Southern Illinois and his heart Is there. What does he care about so unimportant a matter aa a judgeshlp for northern Illinois, when he Is so greatly engrossed in his project to gobble up the delegation from this State for the Vice Presidency V ' • —Now, citizens of Sterling, there is a meeting called for tonight, in which every one of you are interested. You should turn out and improve this golden opportunity to bring added capital and added factories to our midst. Permit ua to say that contributions should be made commensurate with the blessings to be conferred. Parties having real estate in proximity to the proposed dam and parties owning much real estate through the city in the form of btores particularly will also enjoy direct benefit in immediate en- tiancementof values of their properties. Let each man measure hla condition and the possible benefits to be conferred, and let him be correspond- y liberal. Dixon has scarcely one-hall our population and yet Dixon raised and donated a sum nearly equal to the amount necessary_to build the dam and gave it to Mr. Henderson out-and-out as a gift. Our people can and surely will be as generous as Dixon. Dixon lad previously given Mr. Dille twenty thousand dollars to found a school there. We have never yet been called upon to raise any large sum and bestow it for any public enterprise. Twice it was proposed to do BO, once Tor the Soldiers' Home and once for the Henderson factory, and in each our people promptly responded. There s some misapprehension aa to the precise duties of the company and as ;o the amount of power to be given to proposed factories and some few other matters, but that can be regulated and governed by the stockholders themselves. Let us raise the money; our Rock Falls friendscan raise an amount equal to the expense of a race on their side, while our cltixens can raise enough to build the dam and a race upon the Sterling side. This would be generous on the part of Sterling, but we take it that she would be willing .ng to do that; build the dam and the north race, and only ask Rock Falls to put in the race on her side. Let our people turn out tonight and hear the reports of the committee on soliciting subscriptions, as well as explanatory remarks by gentlemen who have studied the question. Let us all and every One remember .that if we wait a . thousand years, we shall never agree entirely and unanimously as to the precise and thorough and intimate carrying out In detail of any project; we must agree to abide by the decision of the majority.' There are more ways than one to do a thing, and more right ways than one. The ideas may be all right and as good as any other; but an other plan may be just as good as ours. What we all wish is, the'.public good. Let us all labor to that end In cheerful heartiness, in the full knowledge that what blesses one part blesses all. The raising of the money for the dam would give such an impulse to business here as that nothing could possibly prevent our taking on greatly added population and wealth, proving of incalouable benefit to both sides of the river. Citizens all. In whose welfare the GAZETTE Is deeply'interested and for whom it is ready to do all in ita power, we have had much talking; now ia the time to do. We address you individually: Have you a home? then the dam will add to its value. Have you a business ? then the data will add to your trade. Have you an interest of any kind in our city? Then the data will add to the value of that interest. Whether you are capitalist or working man, lawyer, doctor, clerk, mechanic, or day laborer, the dam uieaua Hugh times and ou*h tlui«i meaasi be&ettt to everybody. Let th*re ba a roualug turnout tonight. — The funeral of the late Mr. James McKibbcn took place this afternoon, the Rev. Mr. Fife -officiating.
