In last evening's edition of the Alton Sentinel-Democrat, a double leaded article purporting to bo an editorial, was published charging that Benj. F. Johnston, Republican candidate for Congress, employed Italian laborers while building the Bluff Line and paid thorn only 80 cents a day, refusing to hire American citizens at fair wages. Mr. Johntson brands this alleged editorial, as a lie, pure and simple. Tbe Btory as published here was given general circulation by the Democratic press of the district yesterday in the hope that the lateness of the appear- auce of the falsehood would inju:e Mr. Johnston. Mr. Johnston declares the authors of the Infamous statement to have wilfully made i% knowing it was not true and he stands ready to give anyone, who desires !o make an affidavit to support the falsehood, an opportunity to prove his statements in court. He also challenges any ons to make an affidavit to the effect that he paid 80 cents a day for labor in Alton while building the Bluff Line or at any other time or place. We would like to know when or where Mr. Jett ever employed any labor and what were the prices paid. The truth of the matter is Mr. Jett's friendship for the laboring man is all talk; he never employed labor and has no reason whatever to claim that he is the laboring man's friend. The ficntinel Democrat speaks of the indiscreet friends of Mr. B. F. Johnston, referring to the affidavits of some parties who attended a Jett meeting in Fayette county and who stated that Jett at thai meeting attacked Governor Tanner for bis policy at Virden and Pana. Mr. Jett's friends procured what they passsd as affidavits from the parties who were stated to charged Jstt with bay- lug made the statement attacking Gov. Tanner, denying that Jett did make the attack. These Jett affidavits have been proven to have been false in every particular and the parties whose names were affixed to them have made affidavits to the effect that they did not sign their names to such affidavits. The friends of Mr. Johnston have received affidavits from parties staling that Jett did make saoh statements as charged at that meeting. Toot Ball at Sportsman's Hark.

Bright Prospects in Calhwm. Col. J. J. Brenholt arrived home last night from Calhoun counly wtiere he has been spending the last week in the interest of bis candidacy for the Senate, on the Republican ticket.. Mr. Brenholt had a rousing reception in the county and all his meetings were well attended. Oalhoun county la be • ing worked this year by ihe Republicans as It has never been worked before, aud Mr. Brenholt was given assurance of a big change In sentiment in the county in favor of the Republican ticket. So fur as are concerned the reports of Republican disaffection there, the stories are absolutely untrue. The last year of prosperlly in Ualhoun has changed the sentiment of the farmers thero from the worn out free silver fallacy to sound money. Alt Ko|jui»licauii arc enthusiastic in the Kingdom and DoniotTato are much lieprcBsod in spirits at the un- ftii'orab!" outlook for their party. Mr. Urenliolt rspjrls that tha people of the Kingdom wore gUil to see the Kepuhliuuu candidate for State Sena • tor, uud havo nb iniuiUibMud feelings whatever because Oalhoun was not given a place on the ticket.

Voters will find at tho boltom of their ballots next Tuesday, a proposition "for" and "against, 1 the proposed amendment to section 10 of the banking law. Votes should he marked in the "yes" circle as tho amendment will not make a change in any system and its adoption as a part of the State constitution is merely a matter of form. The law which is to be adopted reads as follows: "The total liabilities to any association, of any person, or of any company, or firm for money borrowed,.including in the liabilities of a company or firm, the liabilities of the several members thereof, shall at no time exceed one-tenth part of the amounl of capilal of such association actually paid in. Buc Ihe discount of bills of exchange drawn in good failh against actually existing values, aud the discount of commercial or business pa- pep actually owned by the persons negotiating the same shall not be considered as money borrowed." Then the law provides that if the rule is violated Ihe securities of the bank shall not be impaired but officials who permit the excessive loan shall be prosecuted. All the banks under Stale control have been working under a similar rule in the State b inking law, and national banks observe a similar rule under the national banking law. There will be no change and voters should vote for the amendment, which is designed to increase security of depositors in savings banks. Special Bed-Room Suite Sale.
