ON Friday a delegation of antl'ex- pansionists called on tho President to urge their views upon him. Ho listened patiently, and when tho dole- gallon wna through quietly said: "What would you do with the Philippines?" This delegation did not answer, but promised to conaidor the matter. It will bo a long time before they tend word to the President. They know that there Is but one answer: "Keep them." The antl- expansion talk is mostly sentimental nonsense. BOOKS!

Cloth, by mall SQe A MBETINO of Republican State Senators was held in Springfield on Friday to consider tbo organization of the Senate. Governor Tanner expressed the desire that the Senate should not be organized either aa a Tanneror antl.Tanner body,but In tho interest of the Republican party. This Is likely to bo the outcome. Col. Brenbolt, Senator-elect from this district, was present and will be an influential factor in the organ!gallon, although a new member. PRKHIUKNT McKiNusv is hard at work on his message. It will be very long, aa there are many matters that must be presented to Congress. There are only a few sections of the message yet unfinished, and the most Important of those Is that which will refer to the result of tho peace negotiations at Porls. This section the President will leave unwritten until the lest moment, In order that he may be able to Inform Congress of the exact status of our relations with Spain at the time of Its reassembling. Minority Representation and the Democratic Gerrymander. Notwithstanding the Republicans carried the State of Illinois two weeks ago by (17,000 majority, the Republicans in tho lower house of tho Illinois Legislature outnumber tho Democrats by only three. This meagre majority in tho House, with BO large a majority of the popular vote, is due to two causes. 1'irtit, to the disgraceful and shameful gerrymander of legislative districts, made by tho Democrats In 1893, and fastened upon the people by the Supremo Court eighteen months ago by a decision that the Slate could bo apportioned only onco In ten years. Another cause Is minority representation. The latter was put Into the constitution In order to give the minority representation in the. House. But the theory is a fraud, and works harm to tho majority, by frequently jeopardizing party control, when the popular majority Is very largo, as this year. Majorities should control under our theory of government. Minorities are required to accept majority rnlo. If majorities are Incompetent, corrupt, or not in accord with the popular will, they can be turned out. Ic was never Intended In our form of government that minorities should control, or even seriously ombarras the rule of the majority, as has been done frequently in this state by minority representation. If the next Legislature would submit a proposition to the voters to amend the constitution to repeal tho minority representation clause, In order to allow a majority of tho people of tho state to have an undisputed rule, the change would be made by the people. Minority representation ia unfair, is dishonest, and places the majority in an embarrassing position. It baa never done any good; and when popular majorities are bebw 5P,000 or 00,000 in the state, the Legislature Is ao close PS to frequently render the minority arbiter of the destinies of the state. Minority representation should therefore go. Majority rule ia American, and good eiiougn for all parties. We will have to endure the Democratic gerrymander for four more yeara, but then the people will alt down on it and put it out of aight. A GRt AT REMEDY Tor Sufferers from riles. Dr. Radmorul, a specialist In the study anil treatment of piles and roots I diseases, recently stated that tho Pyramid Pile (!tirp, the new discovery for tho euro of piles, wns tho most remarkable remedy ho had over seen or tried in one respect; and that was the inntant relief experienced In all cases, no matter how severe, from tho moment the remedy was applied. This was tho more surprising to him because ho had carefully analyzed tho preparation and no trace of opium, cocaine or similar poison could be detected. Physicians look with great favor upon tho 1'yrarnld Pile (Jure, because It Is rapidly taking the place of surgical opoiatlona and because It Is so Blmplo, so easily applied and contains no mineral or other poisons saBom- monly used In cures. Dr. Ksterbrook reports that the Pyramid Pile Cure not only euros the various forms of piles, but never fails to give immediate relief on the first application, no matter how severe the pain or discomfort may bo. People who have suffered from piles for years are often astonished at tbo Instant relief experienced from the flrH application. Another important advantage is the fact that any ono can use tlio remedy without detention from biieinoHH or Interference with dally occupation. Sold by druggists nt 50c per package.

JOHN F. MoOINNlS, Master In Chancery. LEVl DAVIS, Sol. for Cimplalnants. TUB report that the Kansas Olty, Plttsburg & QnU Railroad Oo. 1« to bay the Chicago & Alton is an absurdity that is apparent by a simple comparison, Tbe Quit road starts at Kansas Olty, and passes through Western Missouri, Arkansas, Indian Territory, Louisiana and on down to Texas. The route la through new country, and the business for the first six months of 1897 amounted to $872,671 In gross, and 9281,729 net. The road la not even listed In Clou a' Investment guide, where we find that the Alton road for the whole of 1897 did $13,212,772 gross business with 95,742,240 aa the net earnings. The net earnings of the Alton for the lirat els months can be estimated to be practically oue-half of the year's earnings, or nearly 93,000,000. Now compare this with 9281,729 and you can easily answer the question whether the Gulf road can or cannot buy the Alton. Again, the Uulf stock sold yesterday at 18 cents on the dollar. There has been but one sale of Alton stock In six months nnd that brought something like $1.50, There may be a syndicate formed to buy the Alton and then consolidate the other r6ads with It, Bnt the Gulf will never buy the Alton. \ Utter from Cuba. John Hunter, son of Mr. II. B. Hunter, writes from San Luis, Cuba, near Santiago, to his father, a letter giving in detail interesting features of every day life in that town. John is a member of tho 8th Illinois band. The 8th is doing garrison duty at Santiago. Speaking of the food and other matters the writer says: At present we are faring very well. Once In awhile we have dessert which consists of pie, cake, oranges, bananas, etc., out they do not taste like those at borne. The band boys are living a very easy life just now; have plenty to eat, plenty at sleep and not mtum work. We exercise R great deal. Foot ball has been played here by the soldiers.
