THE EVEimrG GAZETTE: SATURDAY, 7. 1883. Evening Gazette. TR It 318 : eb , rtM. | Per Year. ...8S.OO DXLIVEKSD PIT OARRIKB, SATURDAY, JAN. 7, 1588. A FKiEN'o writes to us: "Why does not government compel railroads to retain and pension their emploers In old age V" It would, probably, If it had any way of getting over the difficulty of preventing them from discharging them for cause. Aa it now is, railroads drop their officials as they approach old age and assign no reason, if compelled by law to retain such, they would Bimply trump up charges and thus add shame of "removed for good cause" to that of loss of situation' In ..most business there is confidence of being retained as long as one is useful. In the railroad employ no man, from president of the road down to section hand has any certainty that he will be > kept beyond the day in which he works, Any one knows that it is impossible to do best work for another when it will not be appreciated and when it is by no means certain that permission will be given to remain long enough to finish it. Working for a railroad Is like working for the government in its civil departments. How different in the army and navy. There the officers know they are in for life, and that no act of Congress will Interfere with them. True one finds now and then a scalawag in their number; but it is not possible to find anywhere a more intelligent, progressive, contented and intellectual body of men. Since naught is left them in the way of plucking wreaths of fame from the brows of battle and placing them on their own heads, they give' themselves over to deepest study in the various departments of science and prosecute earnestly studies of the various branches of literature, knowing a sensible government will care for their bodily wants so long as they live, and give them a respectable burial at death. Every business, we care .not what it is, should seek to get best results from employes by giving them assurance of retention so long as they shall merit it and of pension in old age. provided they continue with it until the weakness of age prevents further service. If this were but done, it would add infinitely to the happiness of the human family. THE GAZETTE having with its usual --candor expressed its opinion as to the impropriety of delay in calling an election for judge desires to say but a word more concerning the matter. And that is this: While it would be a slight tax upon the county, at the same time it might be more than repaid in some single case that would demand the presence 'of a judge near at hand. Judge Bailey is out of the district most of the time; Judge Brown is nearly worked to death and If any case of emergency came up, the case, however important, would have to be put off until some idle judge could be found somewhere, or until the February term when some stranger could be called in._ Upon principle tirat tlle~aistrict~which has bad but one judge for a year past can get along six mouths longer without one, it ought to follow that it could do —Advices from Elgin show that, Mrs. Barto is improving under the treatment she is receiving at the asylum. ^-Saturday night, the working m 3 n r s solace and resting time. It is pleasurable to observe those who have toiled hard through the week and earned their rest hurrying homeward to wife and babies and home. Ona of the very strong attractive features of Sterling is the fact that its employes are men possessed of homes, of bright, cheery, happy homes. Ours is a steady going people,—not a movable set of workingmen, here today and gone tomorrow; but a class who take . pride in being part and parcel of the community and in doing their share to make it orderly, progressive and peaceful. No city of our size anywhere can show so many well-to-do workingmen, nor so many having homes all their own and homes that are attractive and pleasant. —The Dixon Telegraph published a week or so ago, a rumor, and stated it as such, in regard to the raising of money and its loss, at a neighboring town A day or so afterward it corrected the statement and made full and ample correction.-Despite this, a paper of the town whence the rumor came, quotes the original article and fails to give the Telegraph credit for its correction. That kind of journalism cannot be endorsed by right thinking men. The Telegraph is most careful in its news gathering, yet any paper, the Telegraph, GAZETTE, or any other paper, careful as It and tbey may be, must once in a while get an item in wrong. But the Telegraph is prompt to correct an error, as it was in this instance and for a brother editor to hold it responsible for publishing an erroneous statement after it had promptly corrected the same is an act of injustice to Mr Shaw and his paper. It isn't often that we take up the cudgel for others, believing that our friends can' take care of themselves; but all editors are interested in the question of fair treatment by members of the craft towards one another. —Consider but for a moment the following bit of information of a local nature. In Sterling and Rock Fails there are seventeen religious bodies, all having pleasant houses of worship and pastors to minister to the several flocks. How often does one hear it said: "We have our full share of churches." But how many reflect that there are more secret society organizations than churches here at Sterling and- Kock Falls, particularly if we consider the various organizations of the same order ? For instance, we find the Masonic fraternity havs a Lodge, a Chapter, a Council and a Commandery; The Odd Fellows.have two Lodges, one Encampment and one Canton; the Ancient Order Workmen have three Lodges and at least one other organization, whose name we are not apprised of; the —Sleighing is still good. Here am! there at long intervals the ice Is somewhat thin on tlio graded up roads; but one can get along very nicely, indeed. —Adam McMulIen was locked up last night and this morning brought before Justice Alexander on a charge of drunk and disorderly. He was Bned 85 and costs. —The committees soliciting subscriptions to the upper dam are intensely active and are doing a good work, which entitles them to the gratitude of our people. ^Chronological: Today is tho anniversary of the birth of Millard Fillmore in the year 1300. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the secession of Mississippi, in 1801. —That toboggan slide has'nt yet put in an appearance. Lots of folks have their caps all ready and it would'nt take long to make their suits. Where is the enterprising man who will put up the slide. ""-*- • • • - as yet —Some gentlemen interested in the matter took a petition to Chicago, Winter is but fairly begun without one altogether. . Of course, though, the GAZETTE having once done Governor Oglesby signal favor, as he frankly admitted himself at the time, anything that it may say favorable to an early call for an election would but be ao much argument in hi eyes, in favor of putting it off. It 1 manifest that it will be put off unti June, and as nothing we can sai would influence the Governor favora bly and since anything we might sa; further would be construed into sympathy with some, person's candi'dacy we dismiss it now and altogether witt our protest, that the Interests of ai; the people suffer by delay, and that it ia not right to resort to political de' vices and tricks in order to fill a vacancy on the judicial bench. —About one o'clock, the clerk-of the weather announced snow, but he did'nt • serve out much of a supply up to time of going to press. —All along the Galena division where there ia a station agent friendly to a certain prominent official of that road, there is much talk over the present and prospective action of said road .toward said agents. There is a story to the effect that boast has been made that every friend of this high official must go. Rumor has it that the agents at Fulton and Morrison are also doomed. We hope this may not be true. Mr. Smith, of Morrison, and Mr. Adams' of Fulton, are both old and warm friends of ours, and both excellent men and good officials. Both have been a long time in the road's employ and like George Rogers have hardly done any'—* —" - - - * Knights of Pythias have a Lodge and a Uniformed Order; and then there are the Woodmen, the Foresters, and last but by no means least the Grand Army of the Republic and the Sons of-Veterans and the Women's Relief Corps It seems to us that there are yet two or three orders which we have not named. This is an age of secret societies, truly. —One of the lines t creameries m the State of Illinois is that of Mr. King, in Round Grove. It has just been completed and set in operation this week. The factory has been built regardless of costs and possesses all the modern methods of conganience. Everything signed by a large number of the shippers of Sterling, asking the appointment of conductor Biglow as successor to Station Agent Rogers, resigned. —It will soon be time for that regular yearly yarn about the woodchuck coming out of his hole and getting scared of his shadow or admiring it, or something of that kind. It will be told at the right time, of course; and there will be the usual number of people foolish enough to think it true that a woodchuck is a safe weather prophet. —The snow on the streets is not snow, but a mixture of ice and snow. Little folks here and there all over town are having a grand time of it for them, catching on behind bobsleds. Of course, it is a dangerous pastime especially when the tracks are so hard s and icy as now; but when did little folks ever consider danger when there was fun to be had. —A story is being told on a certain toper not many miles from Sterling to the effect that he by mistake got hold of a pint bottle of horse medicine at a friend's house which among other things contained alcohol;' aloes and cayenne pepper, and drank it all down, and afterwards tried to get from the owner the name of the brand of whisky he drank, saying it was the finest he ever had in his life. • —The dam project is the one leading topic of discussion to-day all over town. - Subscriptions are coming in steadily and the committeemeu are working actively. But not only are our citizens, but also the farmers iu town to-day. They realize that Sterling's growth means the advance of their property in value. Sterling itself is considerably stirred up on-the mutter, and confidence is strong that the money will be raised. Movement, o« Population. ARRIVALS Miss Emma Eisele, from a visit t Geneseo. Mr. W. H.

We give It as rumor only relieved, and in the earnest wish that it may never prove aught else but rumor. , -Never did we hearof more candidates for State offices on the Eepubli can ticket than have already been announced for this year. Perhaps the fact that so many lost offices by the In coming of Cleveland's administration will explain It, In part. This seems to be working smoothly and perfectly. Mr. King is a thoroughly practical creamery man and is sanguine of splendid results in the working of. this his pet. The main building is 87-48 two stories high, the upper story being devoted to dwelling opportuniea. Attached to the main building is the engine and boiler house 24-30. The boiler being twenty and the engine eleven horse power, and the whole of the lower part is heated by steam. Aside from the ample machinery and their perfect arrangement. An air of elegance seldom seen In such institutions seems'to pervade everything. Such liberal out- ay deserves success, and under its present management, we have no doubt but it will have it. -It has hot water arrangements for'winter and cold water for summer, it also has two of Batcheller's 800 gallon churns and capacity for two additional ones, when needed. It has most superb arrangements for ventilation. There is an ice house 24-30 and. 16 feet hlgb.convenient- ly near. The capacity of the creamery is 500 tuba. —There was quite a large attendance —Mr. H. E. Hand, agent of the Northwestern .for 13 years at Dixon and in the employ of the company for 20 years, has been relieved. This is the third station agent of long service for that road that has lost his position.' Rumor says very decidedly that the work of decapitation will go on until none of the old station agents of many years service are left on this division. As we understand it, there ware no charges whatever against M Hand; it ^as a "change of administra tior^" and the place was wanted fo somebody else, —A Third ward man sat down s quickly and so ungracefully upon on of our icy pavements this morning tha he ruined irretrievably a brand new pair of pantaloons, spoiled his tempo and bruised his flesh. He stopped the editor in the first flush of meditation over the. situation and asked whether he might put in a bill to the City Coun cil lor a new pair of pants spoiled When we suggested that he might, but that it might demand a lawsuit to recover, he declarecfthatthls is not a free country and that he'd move off to land where there is no ice or snow. —So careful a magazine as the St. Nicholas suffers a correspondent to de clare that mother birds will find their young taken from them and made captive, or poison or otherwise kill them, in order to spare them the pain of imprisonment. This is very silly. Old birds have a spite against young ones, —even the sires of some families' will kill "their offspring; and those captive birds known to be killed their Chnrch Notices.
