This case Is brought because the Council awarded the contract for printing city bonds for the State street paving to the Sentinel- Democrat, when Mr. Holden was the lowest bidder, for the reason that the latter waa not a union printer. The award, and the ordinance under which it was made, is attacked because of discrimination and because it Is special legislation. A GOOD LOT OF THEM.

George Oartwright died at 9 o'clock this morning at his home on Maple avenue In Upper Alton, aged 77 years, after a long illness. Mr. Cartwright was one of the oldest residents of Madison county, having lived in this vicinity for over forty years. He was very successful in farming and some years ago .he retired from active pursuits and settled down to enjoy the fruits of his years of labor. He settled in Upper Alton about four years ago, where he lived with bis wife, bis companion of many years, until the time of his death. He was born iu Yorkshire, England, January 11,1821. He came to America and Alton in 1841 and settled In Madison county, where he has since lived, with the exception of a few years in Maoonpiu county. He was one of the substantial farmers of the aounty, A widow and six children survive him: Wmj B., Henry M., John R. gOartwrigbt, Mrs. George Burton, |Misses Hannah aud Lizzie Oartwright. The Upper Alton burglar Is a cool chap and he is well up in his business. He's no ordinary housebreaker, but a very dangerous man and a fellow who would be well placed if he should at last find himself behind prison gates. He was abroad in Upper Alton last night and his trail of early morr*<ng depredations was through three houses hi the village. He visited the home of Mr. A. E. Mills at about 4 o'clock ibis morning. If the Mills'had possessed some shooting irons the burglar might have ended his career there, but the revolver waa missing and there was no ammunition In the house for the shotgun. Mrs. Mills was waked at 4 o'clock by a noise In her room. At first she lay quiet thinking it was a member of tha fam ily, but she at last became alarmed and called Mr. Mills, telling him she thought some one was in the bouse. The burglar here displayed that quality of nerve that makes heroes of some men in proper employment. "Keep Btlll,' 1 he ordered, "there'oa burglar in the house." Mrs. Mills did keep still and the nocturnal prowler went on about his business. He took threa overcoats, a gold watch, and a pocket book containing a small amount of money. Then he started to leave the bouse. Mr. Mills arose to follow him but not having a revolver he could do nothing and was forced to stand at the window and watch the bold, bad burglar calmly light a cigar on the front porch and walk away as though hia business ID the Mills house was the most legitimate in the world. The burglar attempted to enter the homes of Joseph Bverson and Robert Hamilton, but in both cases was frightened off. PAUL BROS., Prescription Pharmacy.

In recognition of his Invariable courtesy and consideration to the newspaper reporters and correspondents of Alton,Sheriff elect Kuhn was presented with a handsome revolver last evening by the representatives of the local newspapers.. The boys have always heH a kindly regard for Alton's best Chief of Police, because of his willingness to keep them informed and the cheerful manner in which he gave out any information he could safely tell. The reporters and correspondents determined that a slight testimonial of the esteem In which he is held should be given him ax an expression of appreciation. The chief ot Alton's police has not carried a good revolver for some time, a fact emphasized on two occasions. Once when he was in a tight place with burglars when Officer Budde and himself were shot, and again when he dropped his pistol on the floor, receiving the ball in his knee by the discharge. The boya heard that the Sheriff-elect waa intending to buy a revolver in keeping with the dignity of his office so they conspired to forestall him. Five reporters and the Qlobe-Democrat correspondent gathered at the police station last night at 0 o'clock, but the Chief of Police and Sheriff-elect waa out hunting for evildoers, ignorant of the fact that con* aplratord were waiting for his return. One ot the crowd waa aent after him and he Drought It he Ohlef back with the message that aome one waa waiting for him with important buaiueai. When Chief of Police Kuhn arrived, Mr. L. D, Yager of the Globe-Democrat who had been selected to apeak for the reporters,addressed a few remarks to him, thanking him for past favors, and aaylng as he preaented the revolver that it it a token of esteem and appreciation and expressed the hop e that he would and it ready always to defend himself In time of need. The Chief of Police waa taken by aurprlBe completely, but with great composure he received it and thanked his friends for the remembrance. The revolver la a 38-calibre, hammerleai, blued steel Smith & Wesson. It la the finest that can be bought in a good serviceable revolver, and liaa aafety appliances that make accidental din- charge impossible. The new Sheriff will nud It a handy thing when he takes bla office. In last evening's TELEOBAPH It waa published that a St. Lonia woolen mill company had about decided to locate at West Alton, and there build a large plant foi the manufacture of woolen cloth. Later developements are that tho St. Lonia company, or the Misaon ri Woolen Milling Co., as it la known, la after the Alton Woolen Mill property, and is very anxious to get It. The only hope that West Alton can have for securing the mill ia that the negotiations for the purchase of the Alton property may fall through. The owners of the mill have been corresponding with the prospective purchasers and arrangements are about closed. The prospective purchasers of the mill requre that Alton capitalists take 95,000 in stock in the plant to increase local interest in it, so .they say. However, it la reasonably certain that the stock will be subscribed and In a few days or a week the details of the bargain will have been attended to and the final decision of the prospective buyers will be made. The old woolen mill property la just what the St. Louis company needs and the members of the firm do not conceal their eagerness to take It at the price offered, providing they can arrange details satisfactorily. _ Helen Buckley, soprano.
