Hepnrtrocnt to Hli- Commander SclilmpiT O. A. B. fotte. The following general order Ho. 2 in regard to the observance of Memorial Day haa been Issued by the new Department Commander A. L. Schlmpff: Again has come the season when nature with lavish'hand crowns the heart With bloom and beauty. With memory tunning tack to the battle flelds on which thousands and thousands who stood with us at the post of danger, gave up life for country, let us gather bud aud blossom and lay them tenderly and lovingly on our patriot graves; let us recall the memory of these men who faced the mouths of canpon, who forded tho streams and stormed the forts, and made the last sacrifice It is possible for the patriot to make>for his country. Let us on the sacred festival ' of our soldier dead—our Memorial Day —strew their graves I'ichly with flowers and utter their names'reverently. Let us invite to our assistance in this-Bacred work the Women's Belief Corps, tho Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic, the sons and daughters of veterans as well as alf other patriotic organizations, and thus show to the world that as long as the Republic shall endure, the memory of the heroic deeds of the volunteer soldier and sailor will never be forgotten. _The established date falling this year on Sunday, the following day, Monday, May 31, becomes under,the statutes of Illinois the legal holiday. I therefore fix the latter date, Monday, May .31,. 1897, as Memorial Day.... But.inl-doing this I desire to suggest that wherever arrangements for the observance of Saturday, May 29, have, already "been made, no objection from. these headquarters will be interposed to - the ob, nervanee. Indeed, believing that no «day is too sacred in doing honor to our ifallen comrades, it will not be objected •to should Sunday, May, 30, be the day observed, This latitude as to date is iglvea with the hope and belief that it will encourage this beautiful custom la many communities where it has not -•heretofore been observed, and enable Hfea comrades in many instances to at- itead more than one service and enable speakers to accept more than a single Invitation to deliver addresses. — Peat commanders are earnestly requested to see that arrangements are made to attend divine service on Sun_ day, May,23, being the Sunday .-before Memorial Day, in which all auxiliary organizations should be invited to participate.;! In this case, aB_in L the^Qxing of the date for Memorial -Day, no objection will be made to the observance • of Sunday, May 30, for this divine ser- railnv"lP<"ttpftns«Rh<»4 ablft to overrun raantctpalitipft through the Interposition of the State was regarded by these men as a bad, not as a good, precedent. Appeals by railroad officiate to the results of this experience were considered simply as a die- play of almost unparalleled effrontery, They were one of many signs that the repulse could not come too soon. But, now that Chicago has saved the great principle for which it fought; it should recognize its responsibilities and f ulfllljts obligations as a self-governing community. It should 8ftt to work at once to solve the street railroad problem in accordance with the beet modern ideas— those ideas^that have developed where municipal government has had Us own -best development. For the next six years the subject should be agitated continually and the people should be given an opportunity to coslder carefully every scheme of railroad control that has been attended with any degree of success. There is not and there never has been any disposition to deprive the companies of their rights, and whatever is done will be done with a due regard for those rights. But this much is certain, that there must be a radical departure from the old methods and a complete readjustment of the relations between the municipality and tho roads, The corporations might as well accustom themselves to the idea from the start, and work themselves into a reasonable frame of mind as soon as possible. It -J IT*-, .**"** I f m vtf Aim's li',y if Ijruf t-A. THE Importations of clothing wool in March, 1894, the last March under tho MoKinley law, amounted to only 924,512 pounds. Thosa in March, 1896, under 'the Wilson law, amounted to 12,739,405, and those in March, 1897, 38,58-5,455, is going out of the country at the rate of ten millions dollars a month Do riot be alarmed at this; remember that foreign goods are being imported at the rate of nearly 100 millions a month and it takes our gold to pay for this excessslve importation. We do not look for liveliest of times until this immense foreign supply of goods Is consumed. WHY do not. the Republicans, go ahead and put the Dlngley bill through ? we are asked. We must not forget that the Senate is not under entire control of the Republicans, therefore the Ee publicans are not responsible for either the delay in the passage of the bill or for the kind of bill that will be psssed; they are doing the best they can with the timber they have. vice should it be found more convenient to do so. , The custom of members of the Grand Army of the Republic going to the public schools, colleges and other institutions of learning on to the last school day preceding Memorial day, to talk to the children on patriotism and ~thelessonB~of Memorial dayriB-heartl-: ly commended and Post Commanders are urged to put themselves in communication with principals of schools in order that these exercises may be arranged throughout this department. By resolution, the thirtieth National Encampment recommended that the raadlngof Lincoln's Gettysburg address he made a special feature of Memorial day exercises held under the auspices of the Grand Army of the "Republic. The address is appended to the accompanlng general order from theHational headquarters and those in charge of the exercises on Memorial Day will cause the same to be read at such time, during the exercises as may be moat fitting. . Comrades, let me earnestly, enjoin upon you to do all in your power to discountenance the practice of attending picnics, games or other frivolous amusements on Memorial Day; Teach the rising generation that this day is tap sacred, too full of sad yet sweet memories, to be desecrated. AWJEKT L.SOHIMPFF, Commander Department of Illinois. - G. A p f ARTPIDQE, Assistant Adjutant General. Fulfilling Their Pledge. The May issue of Gunton's Magazine with its good articles on "Spencer's Last Book," "Progressive Tendencies in the South," "Ancient Charters of Liberty," "Vicious " NewTpaper'Econ-" omics," "Is Russia Turkey's Friend/ ''Large Aggregations of Capital," and other papers of like nature, says editorially: ' "In going ahead promptly with the work of constructing a protective and adquate revenue tariff.the Republicans in Congress are simply fulfilling their pledge to the' country, and the Mug-' wump charge of bad falthon this point is dishonest and false. They know perfectly well that protection was the leading plank in the Republican platform, and that Mr. 'McKinleydid not omit it from a single important speech during the campaign. The gold Democrats voted for him With full knowledge of that fact, and the preaent outcry that they were deceived is 'tantamount to saying that they would have voted for free "sliver and Bryanism rather than see the Wilson law over-thrown. No pledge whatever was made to deal with the currency question first. The great issue was the maintenance of the gold standard, and that was assured themornlng after election. Next came protection and revenue, and these are now being provided. Currency-reform is needed,-but it can very well wait until next winter. If the Republlcano take it up even then, it will be a distinct and creditable advance on their part, as they have not championed it heretofore or made any promises whatever. The charge of bad faith in sidetracking currency reform is not only conspicuously false in itself t but comes with bad grace from, a quarter where political honor and faithfulness to party platforms, are unknown quantities^ ~ ;~ '• CHAPMAN, the New York broker, who refused to tell the secrets of the way he did business to the Sugar Trust Committee of the Senate, was tried for contempt, convicted, sentenced to one month's imprisonment and to pay a fine of £100. He contested every point and has spent'845,000 in attorney's fees and his bills are not all paid yet. With all this expense he cannot prove that the United States Senete does not have unlimited power. THE Judicial election will be held on Monday, June 7. While this is usually considered anT "off"""election,' our voters should not forget that there are opposing candidates and that the Republicans of this county and this Judicial [district should not be caught napping, It is our duty as citizens, and as good party men, to get out and vote. Whiteaide is now in a now Judicial district and it should take pride in furnishing a strong Republican vote. No exception can be had with the can- dipates, they are all good" men—Ramsay, Gest, Blgelow—and they deserve a full vote. . CORRESPONDENCE from Washington says: The farmers benefit directly and indirectly by the changes made in. the tariff bill by the Senate Finance Committee. The imposition of a duty on hides benefits them directly, and, will at the same time be to ''their indirect benefit by Increasing the opportunity, for reciprocity treaties with many parts of the world. The same fact applies to the duties on tea. The new reciprocity treaties which it will be possible to make, by reason of the addition of hides and tea to the" dutiable list," will be a great advantage to the agricultural elements of the county. A. Victory and A Duty. The Chicago Journal ik speaking of the defeat of the Hurnphery bllla says: The defeat of the Humphrey bills can lj« eopftraed jastly in no other way tfega '»» ft victory f gr the people. Funda- jjieutal principles were at stake, principle! that must be maintained if this «6jttbtte is to be maintained. The slfOggle carries pa back to the grand, $Saipie» and incontrovertible propos- itioaa which taake «OP civil liberty and New Apportionments. The apportionment bills as decided, on by joint sub committees .of the House and Senate put Wbltesde county as follows: Senatorially, the Thirty-first district, consists of Bureau, Whiteiide and Putnam counties. Congresslonally, . Bureau, .Henry, Marshall, Putnam, Rock Island, and Whiteside, ' The STANDARD has contended that the Congressional, Senatorial and Jud- ical dlstrlcts^should be portions of each other. The above distribution fills this bill with the exception ofgSMercer county; Mercer' is wlthj us Judicially but not Congresalonally or Senatorially, The new dietrict8,*o far as Whiteside Is concerned are compact,and.sp far as the STANDARDknotfs, satisfactory.White- side is -not hankering after a new apportionment, she Is contented with the situation as. it is, but in the event of a change, the above arrangement satisfies us, , • . ^ THE newspaper correspondents at Washington delight in contrasting the present administration with the one just past. President Cleveland was not in harmony with the Senate and ho was continually scolding its membere. He had no love for newspaper men and they proded him on every occasion. McKiu- ley is in full sympathy with the Senate and the House; be consults members of both and all newspaper men like him. He seems to have control of all tho elements of harmony. OUR new City Council with our newly elected Mayor has cleared its decks for action. Mayor Platt has made his appointments; it remains to be seen whether all of these are judicious appointments or not. The expressed judgment of the people is pretty generally against them. JBnt we should all remember that these selections are not as unchangeable as the laws of the Medea and Persians. If the Mayor finds his appointees are not filling the requirements, he can appoint others to fill their places. l Although they do'not fill public approbation it is well to give them an opportunity to show .what they can do. ^ THE Turk is a little inconsistent. He. declared some time ago in a circular that he was not in this war for conquest. Then he'demanded as the price of peace the annexation of Thesaaly, ten million pounds, indemnity, abolition of all capitulations, besides other privileges in regard to keeping certain ports open. The bloody 'Turk kept right on pushing the Greeks toward Athens an<f it was feared that the noted capital itself would either fall a prey to the Turk or be burned by; the populace. 'Now Russia steps in and calls a halt and the Turk stops short in his Impetuous career, If remains to be seen what modifications the Turk will make, or rather he will be compelled to make^ by the powers," in bis demands on Greece. There wss onco a dmrjroa'n •who <3ifl n lrtrg« and prospprotis busines.H. Ha was kncrwn and roppc-etefl Ity a.. Inrgs fommtmity, nnd nearly nil the people •who knew him did bnginfcsn -with him. I do not know what his real name was, but they called him tJncle Sam. At the early day -when these things happened tbo.ro was very little money, and people «sed bar lead, btillets and tobacco for change. Finally Uncle Sam, who waa a rathtpmujtisnal character, read a pas- sageHn one of Aristotle's works In regard to the invention of money, that "ib was afterward determined in valno ,by men'patting a stamp on it in order that it may save them tho trouble of •weighing it." j So Undo Sam bnilt ft stamping machine ^Inch -would stamp ont an English penny's worth of lead and was worth \a pint of milk, as he was then sell- Ing milk These checks proved to bo quite convenient. People fonrtd them all Inll weight, and Uncle Sam's workmen and servants took their pay in them. People also Bold him their cows for them, and Uncle Sam ..sold milk for them. Sometimes tho people used the lead coins for bnllota and for weights, but Uncle Sam didn't care very mnch. Although it did cost him something to coin them, lie had passed them at their lead valne. In fact, Dnclo Sam would exchange coins for bar lead at any time, Weight for weight, as a matter of public convenience. Some other people made coins in a mold occasionally, baft people generally weighed them in order to fliid whether they were as heavy as Unclo Sam's coins. Uncle Sam said ho didn't caro how many coins they made, and he would tako them liimself if they were fnll weight.' A lead mine was discovered not very far from Unclo Sam's, and lead went down in prico to about half what it had been. A great many people who had Bomo of Onclo Sam's lead began, to wonder .what ho ,waa going .to do about the matter. The checks wcro worth only a halfpenny now. They discovered that Unclo Sam.was still receiving them for a penny's worth of milk and that ho was continuing to pay them out ..to.his.workmen jnst as before. , _ PJis business was enlarging, and he was stamping out'theso checks in larger numbers than ever. People sold him hay and cows for thorn at the same rate, for ho had said that be intended to maintain tho parity of his checks and the penny. People didn't use his checks for bullets now, for bar lead cost only half as much. And Dnclo Sam requested his friends not to make any of these checks out of bar lead, for he didn't like to accept, halfpenny Dobecks for n penny unless he had passed them off on the public for a penny.'s worth of labor. The next thing qf note that happened to Unole Sam was this: The people who owned the lead mine' heard about his scheme, and they got up a convention in order to see if something oonldn't be done for lead. They wanted to get the good.. old prices. They proposed that Uncle Sam should coin the whole bnt-' put of their mino free and let them cart away the checks, since they owned the lead. They tried to makezUnoJe Sam io- Heve that this would double the prico of lead and he could go right on doing business as if nothing had happened. There~WaS"~olso~some" talk to the effect that people couldn't pay their debts unless they could get some cheap money to pay with. Tho working people were getting a penny . a day, and "many of them thought these lead pennies they were getting were too good and would bny too much at tho stores. They joined the free coinage movement in order to get n cheap penny which would bny only half asmuoh as the present penny, with a view of restoring lead to its .old -price,-so people «onld pay-their-debts-in- cheap money. They said they" would trust to luck to got their wages doubled. Some' of the wiser onus shook their heads and said Unole Sam certainly couldn't carry the whole lead output at twice its'market value. They were confident that if ho should attempt to do so the lead coins would soon pass at their junk valne. This would upset credits and business and ruin the whole community.
