Alton, m Death of Tlllto Sonntag. After a lingering Illneaa of nearly twoyeejrs, caused by conaumptlon, Matilda Sontttag, daughter of Frank Bonntsg, of 1615 Belle street, died this morning at 11:30 o'clock. Throughout the long, and at times aevere 111- nees, Miss Sonntag was brave and uncomplaining, bearing the effects of the disease in a manner to win the admiration of all. She was just entering young womanhood when she was atrloiten by tbe fell disease. She had an unusually bright future, fti ahe was a young Udy of rare qualities of mind and heart. She bad entered upon life's work with, cheerfulness and bright hopes, and with the admiration of a large circle of friends who bad learned to know and highly respect her for her Christian cbaraclar and worth. Her death is a sad blow to her many frienda and alosR that words cannot express to her family. During her illness her hope never failed, and she was always willing to try any remedy and undergo any experience that might give her help. When the end came it found her prepared for the groat change which comes to nil. Miss Sonntag was 22 years old on tbe Bist of October last. The date for the funeral has not yet been fixed. ""THE ELECTION. Passing Off Quietly—A fair Vote Will Be Polled. The election today passed off vei y quietly. A great deal of hustling was done by both parties to get out the vote, carriages could be seen all over town bringing voters to the polls, and through the hard work of the party men, a good Gized vote will be polled. The indications are that Jake Knhn for Sheriff will sweep the town with Brenholt for Senator following close after. Cramer for Treasurer and Dooling for County Snperintenaent of Schools will also run considerably ahead of their ticket. The vote in the Sixth and Seventh districts is much smaller than in former years because of the formation of tbe new eighth district ont of the two wards. The vote polled up to 3 o'clock is as follows: First district 2f>9 Second district 177 Third district 270 Fourth district 200 Fifth district 279 Sixth district <•• 19" Seventh district 1*6 Eighth district 237 North Alton J160 Total 1937 The total vote will be in the neighborhood of 2,600.

Unitarian Church. A fair sized and appreciative audience was present Snndaylevening at the Unitarian church to listen to the interesting lecture by Rev. Geo. R. Gebauer upon "Tue Ethics of Warfare." The lecturer in an able and eloquent manner aimed to show that while in the paat history of the world's war had seemed to be somewhat beneficial in the advancement of civilization and the prosperity of the nations suacessfully prosecuting it. Notwithstanding this war must be classed as an evil and as having no permanent benefit to humanity in tbe highest acceptation of the term and cannot rightly claim any ethical standing in the highest type of civilization toward whloh we are striving. The choir favored the audience with a fine musical program. Tbe subject of the lecture next Sunday evening is "The Origin of the Family and Marriage," which will be treated from a biological standpoint. How Do We Do It?

Last night a party of three called at the residence of 'Squire Quarton 1« Miidletown, and stated they wished to secure a marriage licenae. Tbe party consisted of a young man, a young girl and a wornun who claimed to be the girl's guardian. Upon inquiry the woman admitted tbe girl was only 14 years of age, and the 'Squire refused to issue a llcenae. The would-be bride was a mere child, and as tbere was no one who could vouch for the girl as parent or guardian, the license was not granted. This morning another request for a marriage license for a girl of 14 was made. Tbe girl was Kosa Scogglne, daughter of Mrs. Eliza Soogglna, who was present and elated ahe waa willing that the license bo i.wutid.

Hadley was greeted by a good alzed audience at City Hall laat evening. The character of the greeting to Mr. Hadley was warm and highly appreciative. Mr. Hadley is a prime favorite in Alton and his visits are always received with pleasure. Hia address last night was a clear, logical exposition of a few of the leading questions of the day, in which he compared tbe action of tbe Republican and Democratic parties, on financial, business and political features. The [contrast showed in every instance tbe superiority of Republican methods over Democratic methods. The address of the ex-Congressman waa one of the clearest expositions of the issues of the day delivered in Alton during the campaign. The audience vigorously applauded at almost every sentence. At the close of the address Mr. Hadley apoke in very complimentary terms of Mr. Johnston, Col. Brenholt, Jacob Kubn and other candidates on the Republican ticket. All who heard tbe address highly commended it, and showed their appreciation of the speaker by crowding around him at the close and warui- ly shaking bis hand.
