TiOt A BAD TALEST. When the late W. C. Johns was a boy he met Tom Corwin of Ohio. On that occasion -Mr. Corwin advised the bov HEART IS WALL STREET. The story from Wall street Friday was that It had taken heart and that occasion -ut. ^«. .....

The pageant consisted of a nlstory of 'the City of New York from lii!3 to ,^^^s^v*ss*r~^^***r***~*~**~**~ nf ' done by police. They seem to have done a m i g h t y fine job. While the British were taking that polo cup from us we got busy. Flipped up on them a"l captured a grand dial- 191S, shown in dances, games and tableaux. Among the characters depicted were Peter Mlnult, who purchased the land from the Indians, and Peter Stuyvesant, the first governor. The early settlers appeared In costume. The ground for the park cost 148,000, the cost of the development was $10,000, and the recreation house cost more than 320,000. year. At that time they amounted to 57,366,385.16. INDIVIDUAL DEPOSITS GROW. Individual deposits, however, show a slight Increase over a few months ago and also over last year They are while on March 3S succession to the late Judge| W. C. Johns was about the only -- thins this community had In politics last week. It began early, la fact, before the start of the week, and It has not let up yet. Perhaps it will not finish until Governor Dunne makes an appointment. The governor is expected to name a Judge early this week. Monday morning he will meet a committee from the Macon county bar, and It will present to him action taken by the bar in favor of I. A. Buckingham for Judge. Attorney C. C. Leforgee Is expected to head the \ committee that goes to Springfield for this purpose. He will be accompanied by several lawyers, and these will put in their best licks for Mr. Buckingham. W. K. Whitfleld Is the other candidate from this county. His case was placed before Governor Dunne In part on Friday; there was some more of it on Saturday and there will be more e\ery day until the appointment Is made. EARLY THIS WEEK. Presumably It will be made early In the week. Judge W. G. Cochran has written the governor setting out the situation in this district and urging as early an appointment aa possible, telling the governor that another r o w l n g C U p_ just to remlrd them thev were $C,665,4H 18, a difference of there Is no point at w h i c h we are not iangerou« w .en they crowd us. m u ^ t be p i e t t y handy at bar- ·.i.e-ered It m i g h t y good advice to pass; J{ Wa8 t h e day D e f o r e that Mr Mor- , a i n l n g « h t n -n e can sell out-of-date to others.

J B . . , i _ i _ - i - , . * U « » l r i _ * V i i ^ n-r*i a t i-i f II1 Mr. Whitfleld Is reported to have remarked to several that he will get the appointment, and he was not shaken the least In this notion when told of the action of the bar meeting In Decatur Thursday morning last. There are a good many who are versed In politics and who are ready to believe that Mr. Whltfield wasn't talking very wide of the mark If he made the statements attributed to him. ·WASHINGTON NOT TROUBLED There have been rumora that Senator Lewis had taken a hand in this appointment, that In fact, he has urged the naming of Mr. Whitfleld. The heat information that can be had leads one to conclude these rumors are without foundation. A letter was received In Decatur and shown Saturday. This came from Senator Lewis and mentioned that he had been approached concerning this Judicial district. The senator contented himself with remarking that as he has no acquaintance with the situation, o£ course, he was not in position to make recommendations. USUALLY A PIPE STORY. It has grown to be a habit among Illinois Democrats to see the ghost of Washington influence every time an appointment is made in this state, ev- Fos- wllson has urged the namlna- of on* of the candidate!. Of course the {act Is that p*opl» In Washington don't mix into everything that comes up In Illinois politics. They should be credited with some sense of self-preservation; men In hlsh place* do not stay awake nights to find opportunities to get into the hot ws.« ter of recommendations in cases wher» Illinois Democrats are contending with each other. SMART AS OTHERS. The man in Washington in this re- Bpect Is much like the rest of us; he doesn't care to mix Into a local fight. He Is glad to be let alone when matters of this kind come up. Really the senator, -the secreta-ry of state and th« president are not losing sleep over Illinois appointments that are to run LSS than a year. time. There isn't any question aa to the persistency of Judge Cochran's suggestions--and so it Is assumed by all concerned that a man will be named early this week. It may come Monday evening we should, expect an".!;,,, ,,. Monnav. 'other rumor telling us that President slbly by the time this gets to the read pr there will be a story that William J. Bryan has taken a hand In the naming of a, successor of Judge Johns. By Monday evening we should expect an- WHEN A MAN KNOWS HOW. When it comes to a contest of thlt kind we have here the candidate who has had experience in practical poll. tics enjoys a distinct advantage. If a, expects at any time In his life to become a candidate for office, elective or appointive, he should learn politics when young and do enough at It to keep himself in practice and up to form. When he does become a candidate he is pretty sure to find an old. stager pitted against him, and then things will begin to happen while he is looking on and wondering why. We have had an illustration. There was a. bar meeting here Thursday morning last. It indorsed I. A. Buckingham for Judge; and then It was suggested by some present at the meeting that it would be well to nama · committees and have other counties in the district looked after. The suggestion was adopted. SEVERAL DAYS LATER. But when they got to work In other counties they discovered that somebody had been there ahead of them for Mr. Whitfleld.

NEEDED AT HOME. A press dispatch from Seattle one clay last week told that a «hip had reached that port and that it brought an Importation of 3,000 bags of corn from Japan. This was a shipment of about 7,000 bushels. It does not bode well for Japan to have this sort of shipment come out 1'ourth and have made big headway. What about the F o u r t h of July orator?

The fact Is it l«n't fair to charge failure to reach the presidency against any one talent a man may possess In superabundance, For f i f t y years Abraham Lincoln has been the best beloved of presidents. And there wes a Rood deal of mirth provoking talent in that man. It Is told of him that wherever h* was found while riding the court circuit In Illinois one was sure to find a crowd gathered about him; and he entertained and held this crowd In large part br exciting it to mirth The talent did not damage Lincoln's chancel.

And yet If there Is In a man the talent of m i r t h he should give It f n l r vent and play We do not complain of the man who has the talent and exercises it; our complaint Is directed against the ones who ha»en't th» talent and yet Insist on trying to be mirth provoking.

All people of this county, city men as well as farmers, should be Interested In the itory of road work done on the Ocean to Ocean highway In the east part of Sangamon county. The Etory was told In this paper Friday, as reoorted by H. S. Gebhart and John Byrne of the Associatoln of Commerce of this city. !·» appears that this road has been put la first class shape In Lanesville at»d Mechanlcsburg townships in San- 4*aronn county The highway is a dirt road, hut it has been made "admirable." Pr.bab'.y It Is a little the best dirt road to be found lu the central part of the state. In tho report turned In by Mr. Gcbhart and Mr. Byrne we find this: ·There are two good tracks, side by «Ide, no crown In the center, and ample ditches on each side. The road is as smooth and hard Bullard for $71,284. W H Chromster broke the ground foot building on North for his 88 Broadway. HIS BEST TREBtTE. It has occurred to many that the most remarkable feature in the life of Joseph Chamberlain of England Is the way his Birmingham constituency stuck to him after he was physically incapacitated. It was eight years ago that he was stricken with paralysis, since which time he has been utterly unable to take any real part in active political life. And yet through all these years the Birmingham constituency elected Chamberlain to parliament. He tried to resign, not being able to do any work, but the constituents would not let him have his sensible way about this You will look a long while before you find another who has as big a tribute paid him. And perhaps it should not be overlooked that this is something that speaks handsomely of tho constituency as well aa nf Mr. Chamberlain. There was being expressed much regret throughout the city because of the derfth of Train Dispatcher Howard L. Groves who was killed in the Lltch- field wreck. JULY B, 1894. The confederate ship Florida appeared off the union coast below Cape May, w h e r e she captured six vessels, all of which were engaged in carrying supplies. Union gun boats wera at once dispatched from Hampton Roads, but failed to capture the fleet southerner Little or no anxiety was felt by leaders in the union navy concerning that part of the service during the remainder of the war. A crushing blow had been dealt the confederate navy in the destruction of the Alabama by the Kearsase- and other naval victories were expected. THE POLICE! DID WELL. Up to the time this Is written, the afternoon of the Fourth, there is every reason to congratulate Chief Allen and members of the police force on the saneness of the celebration we have had. A good record was made In this respect -a year ago; this time it appears that an even better one is to be We should not be backward about expressing appreciation of work done by the police In this Important matter. It was because of timely and sensible vigilance on their part that the showing could be made. There Is an ordinance that calls for a sane Fourth In this town; but by ihls time all of us should be aware that an or- dlnnn-.'e Is but a starter, that after it HISTORY OF CIVIL WAR DAY BY DAY Slight Decrease in All Deposits in Banks. Deposits in the national banks of Decatur do not reach the figures of a few months ago, according to the statements issued In accordance with the call of the comptroller of the currency Friday. When the last statements were Issued March 4, 1914, deposits amounted to $7,590,248.83. At the close of bust- ness June 30 they amounted to $7,321.254.41, a decrease of $2CR«94.42. The deposits also are a little lower Decatur Railroad Men are Eager to Hear. According to a statement made Friday by President Willard of the Baltimore and Ohio, officials of that line cannot give any definite statement as to the probable operating future of the C.. H. D., the western subsidiary of the B. O., which last week entered Into the hands of receivers. Decatur railroad men htn e been endeavoring to find out just how the C., H. D will be operated hereafter, those In the employ of the road here being especially anxious to learn of Its future. GOT GOOD MEN. President Willard said that until after a conference with the new receiv- rs which will take place at the earliest possible date, he could not tell whether or not the B. O. will continue to operate the defunet line. The first efforts made by tha eastern road was to secure good men for the receivership, and Baltimore officials are more than satisfied with the result. The president is not In the least worried over conditions a s they stand even thought the B. O. carries the heaviest debt with the C., H. D. Large sums of money have been advanced from Ime o time for the building up of the western subsidiary for which It will make claim as general :reditor. In regard to the dividend on B. O. stock, president Wlllard said that personally he saw no reason to believe that there would be any change in the ate from the present 3 per cent semi-annual disbursement. Directors will meet tomorrow in New York will meet in New York this month to take action on the dividend queotlno. What Farmer* Gel, The prosperity of Kansas farmers and that of railroads operating Into the wheat belt Is insured by the fact that the farmers will receive more than $100,000,000 for their wheat crop this season. The estimate has been made by railroad experts who hava gone over the ground thoroughly and report the best cropg in history. Officials of common carriers are becoming more and more optimistic over the Immediate railroad prospects, and many of them say that the revenue this summer will be so satisfactory that no increase In rates will have to be asked for. ~ - ·" "* · Tne deposits also are a lime lower Is adopted the big work remains to be than they were about this time last LEE WETZ BACK ON JOB.
