(D * 0 H —Born to Mr. and' Mrs. Elijah Km- mons, Sunday, a boy. —Clear skies, bracing weather, a moat enjoyable season. —Mr. Myron Humphrey, of Hound Grove, has removed with his family to Sterling. —The telesruvh oflice of the Northwestern at Rock Island Junction has been temporarily closed of a scarcity of operators. —The Miller vs. Hubbard case is on hearing today, having begun last night. This Is a case growing out of disagreement as to terms of renting a farm. —We have not heard of any proposed commemoration of Washington's birthday hereabouts Nor do we understand that there will be any closing of business places. —The roads are in pretty fair condi tion just now. There is snow where the drifts weiv, but otherwise the highways are practically free of snow. The f roat is not deep. —J. II. Hoofstittler is delivering a series of temperance lectures in the Broadway M. E. church, he having delivered one last night and will speak tonight acd tomorrow night. —Mr. H. G. Swartout has returned, temporarily, to his old post here. On account of the scarcity of operators. Mr. Scanlan could not leave Dixon: hence, Mr. Swartout had to return here aa stated, temporarily. —AH cases of violations 5of lish and game laws will receive attention if reported to the authorities. Popular sentiment favors their eufor-jo-nent and all who know of violations should be sure to report them. —The Knights of Pythias after the meeting in their hall, adjourned to Seely's restaurant, where they had an oyster supper in commemoration of the quarter century anniversary of Py- thlanlsm in America last night. —The Drummer Boy of Shiloh has arrived and will give his pleasing entertainment In the Academy of Music tonight. lie comes under the auspices of the Sons of Veteraris and has the best of testimonials from leading newspapers. —The Council met last night. A bill or two was passed, and after the consideration of some unimportant matters it adjourned. The absence of Alderman Werntz'on account of Illness, and of Alderman Gurtisen caused a postponement of the city building matter. —Young Neller was sentenced to four days in th j county jail: Conoway, who drove a friend's buagy into Iowa, from Coleta, received sixty days, and Wash. Uubright bad a (me of 8100 imposed; all by Judge Grlnnell yesterday evening at the court house at Morrison. —Too soon for snake stories. "Jehu's" is rejected on that account. It is too big a yarn that in a nearly snaki-less country HKe ours, a man should have claimed to have killed forty-three which he said crawled out of a single hole during the warmth of last Saturday., Besides, bia story was too long. . —Deputy Sheriff Drake took Phillip Fein and John Fallon down to Morrison yesterday afternoon, State's 'Attorney Stager also going down. Fein and Fallon were taken before County Judge McCoy,'Vbere each plead guilty to the charge of furnishing liquor to men known to be drunkards, whereupon Judge McCoy aentenced Feiu to 100 days in the county jail and Fallon 50 days In the game institution. —Because of a lack of room in the yard befe, and a desire to have it clean, neat and attractive, the ^Northwestern will, this spring, remove the coal sheds to'Nelson, the water tanks, made new will remain here. We are most reliably informed that it is the purpose of the Northwestern to put up as handsome a depot building here as there is anywhere on any of its lines, an attractive and pretty building. TheJItengiueers have been around here for some time making complete surveys of alt the ground and arranging for the work of the coming season. —A Third street raun tells us that a well known character of our town fell yesterday while on his way home, the back of his head striking upon a lime stone flagstone some four inches in thickness, and dividing it asunder, although nearly a half Inch of Ice covered its surface. Strangest of all, the prostrate gentleman sprang nimbly to his feet, and, said, pleasantly, to two or three onlookers, "Didn't hurt a bit; but why in the deuce don't they get better stoae than that for crossings V" Nor was he hurt a particle. Our read- era will please understand distinctly that we .tell this as it was told to us, and we will not vouch *or its truth. . —Mt. Vernon, Illinois, has called fov help from sister cities. The tordado may visit any community, and common charity suggests that they which have should be ready to succor those in need. No man and no comrnu'nlty cau tell when calamity may befa'l them. Any who may see lit to donate money (or these sufferers, can send in the money to tUU uiliee, aiuljwe will forward same to the mayor of Mt. V'er- non, making acknowledgement of the subscriptions through our columns, iuui, also, afterwards publishing the rocniyt which we ta»y r»cotve from !,&* »*M —The, action of authorities in hauling r.p the several part ea who have bfeen furnishing liquor to drunkards, and acting so promptly too, will have a most salutary effect in restraining others from following the pernicious practice. Once •> man is on the blacklist, that should be warning to all to refrain from giving or setting to him. But one of the parties arrested was a saloon keeper and another was his assistant. The total amount of fine and costs will probably be a lesson that it does not pay to run so big u risk for the live or ten cents paid for the drink. The saloon business ia legal, and as long as it is ao, it ia entitled to protection at law, nor Hhould it be persecuted. At the same time there are laws regulating the sale of liquors and those selling if they knowingly violate theso laws should suffer the penalty, just as any other men when they violate law. Whether these liquor laws be more rigorous than others is not the question at all; for when a man enters into the traffic he knows what these laws are, and has no one to blame but himself, if he violates their plain provisions. —Station Agent Fowler called upon us this morning and returned tluinks for our reference to the tramp nuisance and assured us that he is taking immediate steps to abate it. lie will cause the water tanks to be locked and h s men will be ordered not to let any of them in there, or arry other places in the Northwestern yards. This is very clever on Mr. Fowler's part. And now we would again suggest to our city fathers tiiat the way to stop the tramp nuisuhce (presently these scamps can Bleep outdoors or in open 's';eds some- whore) is to put every one to work that la caught in.our midst. It may be said that a tramp will not work. Then we say, make him work. We'll warrant that if the c'ty will arrange to put every one that is captured at work upon the streets, Marshal Fitzgerald will de vise a plan to get a good ten hours' work out of every mother's son of them. This tramp nuisance Is simply abominable; that is what it is. The knaves go to the less populous parts of the city and finding the men from home, scare the women into feeding them. Their terror Is work. If Sterling put to work those"that were captured, it would not be long before there would be none to capture, for they would give our town the go-by. Three inonthd' time would be suillcient for them to have It go all over the United Statec. —It is exceedingly unpleasant for us to have to advert so frequently to the matter of difference between news and advertising. There is not a day passes but through'misapprehension parties call and ask for free notices of greater or less length in praise of some enter : prise in which they al >ne are interested, or at least matters which it ia of profit to them to have published. Now. no 'daily paper In the union can exist upon its subscriptions. They help, but scarcely pay more thau the cost of the paper and press work and postage and carriers' fees. The general expenses of the oflice,—-the type setting, salaries, etc., and what profit there may be, miist come through the advertising. But the cost of paper and press work are the least of the expense, hence the most of the expense is in the type setting, editorial and local work.'etc. We are exceedingly liberal.' "We do not believe there Is another daily in the United States' that does not charge for marriages, anddeaths, single church and society notices, (where there la more than oue notice we charge for it). We likewise devote a great deal of epace (more than any other papers we havi' ever heard of) to advocating public enterprises, for which we do not'receivea cent of pay. In all kindness and good feeling we Insist that this is aa far as we ought to go. If a mail makes au invention, or if he is about to embark in business, or change Ms business, or if he has done some act that will bring him added business, If known, In any of these oases, we ought not to be asked to do the advertising for nothing. A matter of general interest is uews; something that helps the private individual is not news, but advertising. But one may think: Why Bpeak of an item that at the most is but a dollar or two? True, but how many thousand it would be in a year—enough to leave us a margin ot prolit and enable us to get out even a better paper. It is more painful for us to refuse than it is for the party to be refused; but it is absolute self-defense, to insist that the rule be enforced. We want all the news and will have it; and we pay to get It. But to ask us to puff private enterprises for nothing is not light. The Individual who asks it would be taxed but adollai or two to pay for what he wants at our regular rate; It taxes us thousands not to get it from the Individuals. purpose of comparing VIHWS arid reporting progress of the committee who has the work in chargp; and I muat confess all the :V2 yesrs of my residence in Sterling I havti never known a project of so much importance to both the cities and the country round about to be so thoroughly discussed and ventilated and receive such general attention from all classes alike in all parts of the city. The improvement of this water power means everything to our \city, that we can ask for or expect. \\ hen the work ia completed the officers and directors of this water power company can offer to the manufacturing world free use of water power and a site on which to build their shops. Something that has no precedent in the history of this country; and this will lend to"the'necessity of having street car lines to run the length and breadth of our two cities; it will multiply our population, and lead to the replacing of the old frame store buildings' with nice new brick blocks and the old-fashioned dwelling houses shall give place to new ones of more modern architecture. The central high school, the Academy and city building will foUow oue upon the other as matters of necessity. Now, Mr. Editor. I believe this is only a small part of the good things and benefits that must surely follow the building of the dam. Fifty thousand to complete .such a grand enterprise as the new proposed dam should be raised in a day in BO rich a city and community as this we live in. . I have heard of a grand .meeting of the masses to be held sometime soon, at which time those who have worked will be assisted by those who are able ,ind willing to give- and when thj bands shall furnish the music and the grand round up will show the completion of the subscription. We are ail waiting for the time and will be ready with our subsctiptlons. FHEIND OF THE PKO.IKCT.
