I feel more relieved In getting that brief «ent away than anything I have ^experienced In a, long time." Successor Named By the Governor At one* there Is a query is to the successor to Judge W. C. Johna. who died In California Thursday afternoon. Under the law In this state the successor will be named by Governor Dunne. The remainder of the term is less than a year. In which situation ;t I* provided the governor ahall name a judge. There Is a special election to name a successor to Judge Phllbrick: this election will be held th* latter part ot July. It Is altogether likely that the successor to Judge John* will be named bafora th* date of that election. Just now there is but one Judge in tha district, W. G. Coehran of Sullivan. At any moment there may be Important work to look after, hence the nead of getting a second Judge as soon as practical. SPEAK OF WHITFIELD. Member* of the bar in talking about the matter take It for granted that Governor Dunn* will *el«ot a, Decatur lawyer to succeed Judge Johns. Also It is assumed that the man who gets the appointment is a Democrat. Several bar members were seen about this matter. For some reason most of those had an impreesion that the appointment will go to Attorney W. K. Whttfield. He was a candidate for judge five years ago/ and then made a good ahowlng In the race. Also he has taken a position of prominence In the affairs of the party. MR. BUCKINGHAM. Some have mentioned Attorney I. A. Buckingham as a possible candidate tor the appointment. Within a few days Governor Dunne will be officially advised of the death of Judge W. C. Johns, this beins done by Circuit Clerk John Allen. Then the governor can proceed at once to the naming of a successor. One may be had within ten days. Judge Cochran Makes Statement "I have known Judge Johns since 1879," said Judge Cochran at Sullivan, Friday noon. He and I first mot in the trial of a law suit at Mt. Zion in that year. I had Just been admitte-5 to the bar, and the acquaintance that we then formed has continued up to the present time. "I think he wa» one of the most noble characters I have ever known. He wai an honest lawyer and well qualified for the duties of practicing law. Hs was a Judge without fear or favor, versed in all of the rudiments of the laws of this country, and was very painstaking in the discharge of his duties. "He wa* very modest; never boasted of his achievements ot any kind or character. He was a soldier, but few would ever have known It If tney had waited for him to tell it. "I feel that I have lost a friend. He and I have been like brothers for the last ten years. We have often met and consulted and devised means for the speedy expedition of the business of the court as best we could. I am very sorry, so aorry that I have not words to express the personal feeling (hat T realize at the death of my rolleague." Judge Cochran will be over 10 Decatur for the funeral If he Is able to get away. "Had no Favorites," Says W. E. Redmon "As state's attorney of this county, I was probably more closely connected with Judge Johna than any other lawyer for ten years," said W. E. Redmon, Friday morning. "He was ons of the most able Judges I ever knew and had absolutely no favorites. He was always guided In his decisions by what he thought was right In the matter. I liked Judge Johns and was sorry to hear of hi* death " W. K. Whltfleld was in Chicago Friday and Is not expected back until Saturday morning;. Attorney I. A. Buckingham Is expected to reach Decatur early Saturday morning from Camp Denlson, O., where he attended the funeral of his brother. Committees Named for Johns and Roby Funerals.

"What is the best thing that may be said of Decatur?" was asked John Byrne, secretary of the Association of Commerce. "Our ginger," he replied, at once. "When we have anything to do that is worth while we do it. "I mean that we are awake, alive, alert, ready. "We have initiative and steam, enterprise. We do things. When our people are called on they respond. There may be a few kickers, but It will be a email number. Generally, on the biggest propositions there are no kickers. Everybody is ready, and everybody helps. "We go at big things and we have, as I said, snap, ginger. We have enthusiasm. "No city outside of Chicago has done as much in the last ten or twelve years as has Decatur. Think of all the big things we have done. We have done these things because we have the quality that makes things go, that gets things done. We have the ginger and that Is the best thing about Decatur." WHAT DO YOU SAY?

Prices Go to Lowest Point of Decline. Chicago, June 26--Bear* today reetp- tured control of wheat. In a. «*nertl rush of selling, prices went till lower than on any occasion «lnce the r«c*nl sensational declines began. Meal weather In the harvest region liafl much to do with the freeh setback, and BO also did a sharp break in values at Liverpool. The opening which was % to Ic under last night, wa* followed by an additional sag. Reports of wonderful threahln* returns In Kansai and Oklahoma and assertions that the Dakota* and Mlnne«o- ta taken as a whole hav* been helped rather than harmed by recent rains were influential against the bull*. The close was steady at H4 to IHo net lower. A Corn dropped with wheat and a* a result of predicted showers where needed. There were reports also that Argentine shipments were improving In grade and were proving larger than expected After opening unchanged tt lower, the market continued to descend. Lack of shipping call tended to keep the market depressed. The cloee was unsettled, Vic to %c under last night. Oats had no substantial aupport. Most of the commission houses wer« on the selling side. Packers unloaded provisions. First transactions ranted from Z'A to lOc down and there was f u r t h e r weakness later on. DECATUR MARKETS.
