Dewell of Chapin, 111., at the meeting of the Board of Supervisors at Edwardsville Monday made a plea for the Illinois Children's Aid Sopiety. Mr. Dewell requested the board to send the orphan children to that society instead of to the Madison County Poor Farm. Should the children be sent to the society, Mr. Dewell said, good homes will be provided for them. A committee to look into the offer was appointed, consisting of Chairman Frank Troeckler of Mitchell, Joseph Long of New Douglas, O. K. Davis of Edwardsville and John Elble- o Alton. At the present time all the children placed in the charge of the Supervisors are taken to the Poor Farm, where practically no opportunity is offered foil proper training. Maud Stanley, who has been detained at the police station several days on a charge of unlawfully representing herself to be the wife of George Laws, has refused so far to say anything that will give the police definite knowledge as to who the other members of the gang are who were in the hide-stealing gang of which Laws was chief. The Stanley-woman admits she is not the wife of Law.s and does hot deny that she knows who the other thieves in the gang are, but she refuses to divulge a single secret that will assist the police in capturing the remaining members of the gang. The Stanley woman has an infant child in .he police station and for that reason she has not peen locked up. She wi ( be given a hearing Tuesday on a charge of living with Laws without being married to him. Maud Stanley, thewoman who passed herself as the wife of George Laws, the hide thief, was bound over to the grand jury this morning in the sum of $200. She has a child of six months old which will be taken to Edwardsville with her. Treasurer's Bond Accepted. The bond of Charles F.

Finally the Illinois Terminal enjoined further interference and completed the device. The work was done under the supervision of L: A. de Berard. Manager Ferguson says a test of the safety stop device will be made about February 1, which the Railroad and Warehouse Commissioners will attend. A train running full speed will be stopped by the safety stop appliance to illustrate what would happen in case of necessity. The air brakes on the Terminal train will be automatically set when either a Big Four or C. & A. train has the right-of-way at the crossing. The Barnard City Court Books Bill. < It is said that the opponents of the payment of the Barnard City Court records bill will coritest its payment. It was said by one of them Saturday night that it was determined to sue the councilmen for the amount, under the supposition that it had'bee,n paid. But the money has not yet been paid, and will not be before the appropriations for another year have been made. The bill was made more than two years ago, and, while there is a misunderstanding as to who.order- ed it, the city will have to pay it in the long run, as there is evidence that city otticjals communicated with the Barnards in reference to it, and the. books, when sent, were not returned. Wholesale Robbery at Medora. Medora suffered heavily at the hands of robbers Saturday night. There was a big celebration by the Modern Woodmen and nearly every man, woman and child, with all the dogs in the village were at the celebaation. A report reached Alton that a half dozen houses were burglarized while the people were away from home but "the burglars are said to have secured nothing of value. Chief of Police Volbracht was asked to send bloodhounds to trail the burglar's, but no bloodhounds were here. The Transfer Deeds Delivered.

As an experiment, 05 head of well hogs were bought ajid turned into the same pens, fed from the same troughs and slept in the same nests until they were, thoroughly infected and one. had died, then treatment was begun with this remedy and all were saved in spite of seven days of cold rainy weather. We also talked to Mr. Sanders, the owner of the hogs. and he verified Mr. Hnntzinger's statef ment and seemed very enthusiastic over the success of the treatment. We are thoroughly acquainted with Mr. Huntziuger and know him to be reliable, he guarantees to cure 75 per cent of any bunch of hogs or no pay. -••Danbiiry (Neb.)

William Graham, chief clerk in the St. (.'., M. & St. L. Belt Railroad office at Alton has been appointed superintendent to take the office tomorrow. The retiring superintendent, J. E. May, who will succeed H. V. Seymour as private secretary to General Superintendent Gray at Bloomington, will leave this evening to assume the duties of his position, as his services are found to be imperatively needed, the temporary arrangements not being satisfactory. The appointment of Mr. Graham is a just one, as he merits the position. He is a first-class railroad man and has held responsible positions, previously. To the Alton people with whom he has become acquainted he is a valued friend, and he has many well-wishers who will be glad to know of his good fortune. Receiver J. F. Barnard was in town today to check out Mr. Graham as chief clerk and Mr. May as superintendent. Mr. Graham will have a chief clerk, but his name is not announced. Burglars Raid Mt. Lookout Place. The home of the Hon. H. G. M'Pike was raided' by burglars Tuesday but nothing of value was secured by them. Entrance was effected by way of a window on the back porch. The burglars used an axe to pry open the window. Their way through the house was strewn'with burned matches and marked with muddy foot prints. Nearly every room in the house was visited in the search for money, but none was secured by the burglars. They left the house by way of a door and carried the axe to the side gate where they left it hanging in a tree. Mr. M'Pike measured the foot-prints of the burglars in the mud at the window where they entered and the nneas- ure was that of a small man and a medium sixed man. Two months ago Mr. M'Pike's home was entered by burglars and a fruitless search was made then by the intruders. The burglars were frightened away the first time as there were indications of a hasty departure and a bundle of gloves, probably stolen, was found on the floor wrapped in a copy of the Auburn Citizen. A Victory for Union Labor The Alton Trades and Labor Assembly is to be congratulated that it has caused the county board to resolve to hereafter haveal! its printing let by contract to home printers. County officers have shown the utmost disregard, in the past, for the home printing offices and the work which should have employed tax-paying printers in the county, has gone to outsiders. It is the single instance, too, where home labor has been practically ignored. The food supplies for poor house and jail must be let to home dealers and so fur as possible the county board lias employed home labor o;i its works for the county. It was a rough comment on the loyalty of county ollicers to their newspaper friends when it be- same necessary for the Alton Trades and Labor Assembly to. remonstrate against the letting of contracts too Teely outside the county. Struck on the Head Hlth a Sledge Dr. Waldo Fisher dressed a severe wound on the head of a bridge builder named Robert K. Luhey nl Komper, [)!., last evening.

Itamlln, Republican Candidate for Attorney-General It seems that the Republicans of the 18th district will witness an interesting contest between Lieutenant Governor Wm. A. Northcott, for renomination for the office he now holds, and Hon. H. J. Hamlin, who aspires to the lie- publican nomination for Attorney General. Mr. Hamlin holds that the 18th district cannot get more than one name on tlie State ticket: that if the counties composing the district have two candidates, and go divided to the State Convention, they will probably get nothing; that as Mr. Northcott has had one term in office, favors should go round, so the friends of Mr. Hamlin are urging a solid delegation with the exception of the delegates from Bond county for their favorites. These may not be facts, but they are as Mr. Hamlin and his friends see them. Mr. Northcott wants the convention to instruct for both himself and Mr. Hamlin, and let both candidates take their chances in the State Convention. Mr. Hamlin's friends re- tart that Mr. Northcott's plan is a very good one for him, as the nomination for Lieutenant Governor is second on the list, and that of Attorney General near the end of the list. If Northcott gets the nomination he is seeking by the request of the district, when the Attorney General is reached, the convention will say: "The ISth district has the second office in the State, and that is enough for it." And so Mr. mxmlin's friends are determined to work for a . solid delegation and secure it if possible. However, Mr. Northcott will not be put off that way, as the following letter, addressed to theeditorofthe TELHOKAPH will show; GBKENVILLK, ILL., Jan. !), l«Xf. Mv Dear Sir:—H. J. Hamlin, of Shelby ville, has made the open declaration that he would not only ask that the delegates from Madison county to the State Convention be instructed for him for Attorney General, but that ha would make a light against the coui.ty being for me for Lieutenant-Governor. Now I have always stood by the proposition that it was the proper thing for the counties in this congressional district to instruct its delegates for each of us and let us take our chances in the State at large. 1 can sec no reason why Mr. Hamlin should make this fight on me and no good reason why the Republicans of Madison county should turn ire down in this way. 1 ask von to me your influence in my behalf with the delegates from your county to the State Convention. J will be at Kdwardsville on Wednesday, January 18th, at the St. .lames Hotel: and at Alton, on Thursday, January 18th. at the Madison Hote'l; and 1 would lie very much pleased if you could call upon me at one of those places. With kind regards, I-am, Yours sincerely, W. A. NOHTHLYITT. Both candidates have many warm friends in Madison county. Mr. Xorthcott'hits always been popular, and having <r| vet] ^rfncral satisfaction to the people in the discharge of the duties of the office during tho past three \ i-ar-. ho has still many friends. Mr. loji.iiu is one of the ablest law .MM-- in the State. This is admitu-il on ail -ides. Hi< has done much work for !!r« party without asking for anythiii;: 1 in return until this year, when lie desires to he the eandi- lale for Attorney General. It will, no doubt, be tin interesting contest. Mr. Norihcoit.'s friends claim Bond, Montgomery und possibly Fu,\ette. Mr. Iliimlin's friends claim Shelby, Monllrie, Montgomery and possibly Kayi'Hc. Madison is not us yet •laiiiu-d by cither but both hope to se- •u're indorsements in the County C'on- ,'cntion to lie held u few duys befoiv in-meeting of the State Convention, low .-et for April 10th rie.vt. .1, N. l)e\\oll of i 'liupin.
