KOT Circtilt JntSRSS, l«h Judicial District. HIRAM BIOELOW, Of Henry C'onnly. W. H. GE8T, O* Rock island County. FRANK I». RAMSAY, Of Whlteslde County. Jobnso'n Against The People. . Th&STANDARD drew it very mildly the other day when it said out Eepre- atativfr, f5. C. Johnson, misrepresented the majority of his constituents. Now the Bureau Courfjfcy Republican speaks more plainly as Allows: *'puring the campaign last summer, the RepublJcai} said concerning Caleb C. Johnson, ofV Whtteside county, (the Democratic nominee for the Legislature from this district) that he was an expert corporation attorney, and if elected, could be relied on to look after their interests. Mr. Johnson was elected, and the prediction ot the Republican has proven only too true. Mr. ' Johnson headed the movement, for passing the Humphrey bills, and not only voted for them, but made a speech in their favor, and did everything he could to aid the movement in giving away the streets of Chicago for flfty years to Millionaire Yerkea. Mr. John- sou, like William Pilgrim, of Bradford, who preceded him as the Democratic minority Representative from this district, has voted for every suspicious measure that has come up at* Spring- Held. While Mr. Johnson has been pursuing this course and voting for each outrageous measures, our two Republican Representatives, Messrs. George Murray and J. W. Dineen, and 'our Senator, J. W. Templeton, have been as actively opposing all the bills that savored of bribery and corruption. They voted against the Humphrey bills, ; and Caleb voted for them. , "The next time Caleb C. Johnson -cornea around this way telling how the .people are being oppressed by the • trusts and corporations, let him tell what influence (?) induced him to vote to give away the rights of the people to 1 'the Chicago street .railroad corporations. He votea for every measure calculated to oppress the people, and we '^suppose the right kind of influence is •-used with him. Mr. Johnson'may be ' .Job-king oat for himself, but he is no Iriend of the people. "He trains with - the gang that. is tnown aa boodlers throughout the State, and in the Legislature is one of the mouthpieces of any corporation that may need his services in pushing questionable measures. If the Legislature was .made up entirely of such men aa Johnson and Pilgrim, the State today would be in a pitlble condition. It needs a few honest men there to hold such questionable measures in check, and the Republican is pleased to kndw that in Senator Templeton and Representatives Dineen and Murray we have men who are not afraid to go on record as opposing wicked measure?, At some* of the meetings held in Chicago to, denounce the Humphrey bills, the advocates of these measures were ; characterized as bribetakers . and boodJers, and the prbbabllty. is that the Chicago people knew what they were talking about. Be Sure ftnd Vote. Our Republicans want to be wide awake concerning our 'Judicial eleo tion. Voters will not turn out to.go to the polls at this season of the year, unless they think it is absolutely neces aary. It is necessary. It ia reported that the Democrats ex pact to catch the Republicans nap ping and that candidate Scott, of Mercer county, is making a still hunt urging all the Democrats to get to the polls on election day and vote, If the Republicans think there is no danger they may be fooled. There is no danger, whatever, of a,Democrat being elected, if the Republicans get out anc do their duty, but owing to the busy season of the year and the supposition that all is right anyway, Republican .voters may not get to the polls.• The safest way in all cases is to turn out and vote for the ticket. We want to give our candidates for judges our fni yota. By doing makes the elec tion sure; by neglecting to vote, we en danger the ticket. The c tndldatea deserve the entire Republican vote Every Republican should feel that it ia a duty to go to the polls and vote;, this is a respect that we ahould show to the other counties of {he district. , Tlte Judicial ISleetiois. i county is now ia tbe new judicial circuit which is composed of the saswfcies. of Banry. Mercer, Bock lelaadi aad Wbifceylde.

But gooJ Re should remember that there are Democratic candidates for Judges opposing tbe Republican candidates, and al- hotigh the Republicans are greatly in the majority in this district, they must remember that a full Democratic vote and a large stay at home Republican vote, may defeat our ticket, The way to make the election of Blgelow, Gest and Ramsay sure, ia to tutn out and vote for them. No«xcep- ;ion can be taken to these men as 'candidates, therefore, no .Republican has any good excuse for objecting" to Tote for all of them. Mr. Blgelow and Mr. Gest Is just as much entitled to the vote of our voters as is Mr. Ramsay, There should be no difference in the vote of this county. Mr. Ramsay himself desires that all the candidates shall receive the entire vote of the ounty. . It is but justice to the other counties that this should be done. The other counties of the district are urging their voters to come out and cast the full vote for Bigelow, Gest and RBmsay ) and old Whlteside must not fail v to do her duty in casting her vote fore the three candidates. The only possible fear is in the stay at home vote. It is a busy season and BO many farmers may think that their vote is not needed and they will stay at home. This ia a danger that our Republican voters must avert by going to the polls and voting, _ _ ' Tariff Is A Tax. We heard a great deal about protection fostering trusts, etc. A short article in The New Albany Tribune cnocks "the stuffing" out of this idea. It says:. 'You think the tariff duty is added to the price of the article, do you? Yes, I do.' Well,, you know that in 1890, before the McKinley bill became a law, the pride of cotton tie was $1.30, don't you? 'Yes, sir.' . Then the McKinley law levied a duty on foreign made cotton ties of 81.03, and then the price ought to have been $2.33, ought it not? 'Yes, sir; it ought.' Well, do you know that the protection given, stimu- ated the manufacture at home and the price fell to ninety cents ? 'Y ye-yes, [ believe it did.' You know- also that ;he Wilson bill put cotton ties on the free list ? "Yes." And then the price went up to $1.40; do you know that? I do not know anything .about it and I will not be catechized any longer.'-" "What Counts. Republicans who delude themselves by thinking the Democrats are going to allow the judicial election, June 7, to gp by default may wake up to find themselves mistaken; it is to be hoped that the waking up will be done before our candidates are defeated. The fact that the Republicans are in the major ity in this district cuts no figure unless that majority turns out and votes. The big majority in the ballot box, not outside, is what counts. No matter how much of a Republican majority we have, unless it is deposited in the ballot box it does not count. Republl cans should bear this in mind. . ONCE in awhile a Democratic newspaper so far forgets its free trade leanings as to unwittingly talk protection. This is the case with The Henry Advertiser. It says: " ; There are agents for foreign grocery houses scouring the country for orders These are doubtless honest fellows and exhibit genuine wares. This rea son why they . should be patronized. Stand by the fellows who have exchanged goods for your products, who .have carried you on their books, .through the stress 01 drought, low prices, sickness and hard times, Stand by the men who help pay tbe taxes and make possible cities schools and churches. Stand by the men who have stood by you." The STANDARD believes in standing by home industries. Home market for our own citizens and the best of wages for our American laborers. CORRESPONDENCE from Washington in regard to the schedules of the Dii ley bill says: "The proposed duties on the quantity of raw hide which woul< go into a pair of shoes would probably amout to about five cents. As onl; about one-fifth of the hides used in this country are imported, the in creased cost of a pair of shoes by reason of it would probably not be more than one cent. The average man probably buys about three pairs of shoes in the year. If anybody objects to paying three cents yearly to the support of the Government in the extremity to which the Wilson law has driven It, let him stand up and offer bis objections, Such a man would be a curiosity, especial] in view of the fact that the duty wil be of great advantage to the farmers of the country. PUN'S weekly review of trade nays unmistakable evidences of improve meat come in the general increase o: commercial loans. This gives proo: that new business has been larger than many have supposed. The exports oi gold have no, influence and only signify the willingness of Russia to pay a price for tbe gold needed. There ia a distinct increase in the volume of business to Aet»ta4 f o? products of xa&aufact- , $B the wovejsoiits of grain np*n for .Thine 7. need Mr. Yerkea be in 8*ieh IB great hurry ? Ills present I ranehieea un six years yet. OF course our statesman, our Cale, voted in the judiciary committee In favor of the new Yerkea' bill. A LITTLE indifference on the part of ,he Republicans on June 7 may defeat the candidates for Judge. We cannot afford to run the risk of not going to the polls. : . L^_ CONSIDER the importance and honor of having a Circuit Judge in Wbiteside sounty. Talk to your neighbors about t and both go to the polls on June 7 and vote for Ramsay, Bigelow, and Gest. REPUBLICANS should remember that Judicial elections are just as important as any other, election and on Monday, June 7, all Republicans should get to the polls and vote for Ramsay, Bigelow and Geat. REMEMBER that three Circuit Judges are to be elected on Monday, June 7- This a Republican district and Republican candidates should be elected, and they will be elected'if our voters turn out and go to the polls, THE sub-committee of the House has decided on another 'Congressonal Apportionment bill. This places White- side.Bureau, Stark, Feorla and Tazwell in one district. This is an unreasonable district and should not receive the sanction of our Representatives. That street fakirs do not pay enough license.—Storing Herald, : Thus Brother Dunbar favors protection for home industries. To be consistent he should come around and advocate general Republican protection for all American industries, and q for Sterling only; be consistent, Colonel. THE Senate Committee recommends a duty of one and one-half cents per pound on imported [hides. Shoe manufacturers kick against this?' If we are to have protection why pot on hides? The STANDARD believes..that t will be to the best interest of farmers and battle raisers to sustain the duty on hides, and it will work no del-, riment to the buyer of shoes. It is the manufacturer of shoes and not the wearer, who is benentted by free hides THE great Democratic idoli J. C. Calhoun, said something, in 1816 tha^ .his Democratic followers have been going back on ever since. He said: "When our manufactures are grown to a certain perfection, as they will be under the fostering care of the government, * the farmer will find a ready market for his surplus products and a certain and cheap supply for his wants; prosperity will diffuse itself through all the country." THE Minneapolis Tribune"fiays: "The Iowa, Legislature has adopted the wild rose as the State (lower, which is just too lovely .for anything. To judge by the fragrance emanating from, the vl cinity of the Illinois Legislature, where a lobbyist approached the wrong, man who gave away the methods behind the notorious Humphrey bill, a skunk cab bage would be an appropriate emblem for the 'Sucker' State." A VERY disagreeable scene occurred in the House at Springfield on Thursday. It was almost a free fight. An ink stand was thrown, presumably at Speaker Curtis, but it hit another man. The row was raised on the Democratic side by Representative Novak, of Cook. He rose to a question of per sonal privilege and while on the floor moved that a certain bill be recalled to second reading. The Republicans ob jocted and a rumpus ensued. The af fair is disgraceful to say the least. PROTECTION- sentiment is growing in the South; five Senators of tbe thirt; from the South will vote for the Re publican tariff bill, Those Senators are McEnery of Louisiana, Pritchard of North Carolina, Deboe of Kentucky Elklns of West 'Virginia,, and Welling ton of Maryland, When it is remem bered that every one of these men wa preceded by a man who voted for the freetrade law now on the statute books the growth of the protection sentimen in the South is as clearly seen as it is by the fact that more than thirty southern votes were cast for the Dlngley bill in the House, REPORT from the present tariff bil eays that it increases the tax on beer 44 cents a barrel. This is about one cent a gallon. If any beer consume fears lest this increase is going to add to hie "burden of taxation," let him figure out the number of glasses of bee which is supplied from a gallon of that liquid, and then enquire what fraction of a cent will be added to the cost of glass of bin favoriie beverage. The increased receipts of the Government will be, by this taxation, about thirteen millions dollars per annum, and a mo meat's reflection wiil show .tbst it in not going to add at wil to the expesdi tuy$of tfaa rfpwta from is getting evtn with g}iig froro Mr. M*sri- ds now, IT looks as though our Republicans are waking up to the fact that the best thing to do is to turn out and vote at .he coming judicial election. Busy voters should make arrangements before, hand to take an hour off on Mopday, June 7, to go to the polls and cast a straight ballot for Ramsay, Blgelow and Gest. lUKJState Centra} Committee met yesterday at Springfield and urged on our legislators the advisability of hurrying the new apportionments through, It is a question whether bur law makers will take kindly to'tBls proffered advice. Our statesmen are zealous^of their prerogatives and they want to attend to this matter of apportionment as they see fit. THE people of Queensland have an agent in California inducing immigration to Queensland. The agent is reported as saying that Americans are the best class of citizens, because they are thrifty, can use the ax in the forest or the plow on the plain, a,nd have mechanical genius to do anything. These are just the people to stay at home and help make America the greatest land on earth, THE Chicago Tribune, with its usual hustle, has interviewed the Illinois editors by wire in relation to the new. Yerkes street'car bill, and it finds th'at the newspaper men of the State do not approve of the new bill. ,Tire sooner the Legislature drops all this monkey work and settles down to honorable busluessfthe better for the' State and the reputation of the members of the present session of our General Assembly. ' i • ' •' . ' •" : ; IT is well known that President Cleveland and his Secretary of State favored Spain in the Cuban difficulty, Itia now said that there are a great many consular reports from Cuba to this government that cannot be found in the archives of the State, department. What has become of these reports is the question. They were certainly not favorable to Spain. The present administration' should have them. THE tariff bill is now up before that august body, tbe United States Senate. It is mangled up so since it left the House that its dearest friends hardly know it. Should the t bill, as now amended, pass the Senate, it would have to go back to the House and it is a question as to whether the Senate bill with its amendments would pass the House. Stranger things have,happened than to have the present tariff bill fail to become a law at this session. What is wanted is a fair and square protection measure without regard to trusts and combines and have this passed immediately. IT begins to look a little doubtful whether the present Assemby will pass any apportionment bills at this session. The machine men propose either to force the opposition to support them, or stand with the Democrats and defeat an apportionment. On the other hand, when it comes to the point where anti-machine men become, convinced there is no chance for them to control, they Will stand out against the opposition, and with the Democrats also to defeat an apportionment. Ot the different schemes presented the following disposition made of Whlteslde suits best: Senatorial—Whlteside," Bureau and Putnam. Congressional—Whiteside, Rock Island, Henry, Bureau and Putnam.

Yonogr Man's Family Tell* the Story of . HU Doings. According to the stories told by members of his own family, Alfred S. Pursell, of Chicago, nineteen years pld, possesses a genius In securing other people's property which ^is marvelous In one so young. ,,' They say that Tuesday, while they were all away from home, the boy had a wagon come to the house, removed a carpet and sewing machine and mortgaged them to the Economy Storage Warehouse company. To accomplish all this he decoyed his father down to* Tattersall's by means of a note asking him to come there on Important business, His father, is Lewis H. Pursell, a life-long resident of the locality where he lives. The property belonged to the boy's brother-in-law, H, W. Ralph.* a salesman for a typewriter concern on Madison street. When the neighbors saw the carpet and the machine taken away, they re marked that the Ralphs were moving and thought nothing strange about it, When told that he would have to bring Mrs, Ralph to tbe warehouse,, to. sign the notes, Puraell went ouUind shortly after returned with a girl, whom he alleged to be bis wife. They signed the names of Ralph and Mrs, Ralph to the notes, it is said, and indorsed a check tor f 25, which they received Jo exchange f or the goods. Since then Pursers family' have •« seen notn ing of him and jthay have notified tht police.

This county, Benton, lies along tha western shore df the Tennessee River \ and contains some ricb bottom land, Boms less good upland and nome worn out places, Our upland sod is not very deep and is underlaid with a stiff clay. •We raise wheat, corn, cotton, all kinds of clover grass, cowpeas.and garden vegetables. Our farmers use but little fertilizer, and our crops are very abundant. However, the soil responds well to any care and fertilizing,' Fruit—apples, peaches, blackberries, strawberries—are largely grown and" shipped, either dry or green, The main money-making crops are cotton and tobacco—both low in price now, but bringing cash. : . . Stock, however, can be made the principal source of Income, as ~ cattle, hogs and sheep will live nine months In the woods. Lard Is always cheap— from $2 to $6 for good upland, and higher for bottom. There Is no drouth, hence it is easier for a poor man to make a living here than in the North.. Ho needs less clothing and less fuel, and 'groceries • and every thing 1 are as cheap, if not cheaper. Poultry 1 Is one of our great exports., ~ We ship from here every day, and out merchants pay market prices. .The same can be said of hogs and cattle.
