The State of Illinois has offered a reward of $200 for any Information tnat will lead to tbe arrest and conviction of the murderer or mor-lerers of Qeo. 8. Harrison. The reward IB offered under a statute that permits the Governor to offer 9200 reward for the arreat of any murderer, and Is quite frequently offered. The total reward now will amount to 91,000, and it Is the Intention of tno family to make It that amount. Madison county has offered a reward of |200 and the family of Mr. Harrison had offered «300 additional, A private subscription was made by friends of tho murdered man and citizens of Alton and Upper AKon who desire to have the murderers discovered and compelled to pay tbe penalty of their deed. Mr, Harrison was murdered November 18, and today the mystery of the Identity of the murderers is as puzzling as it was at first. Hia family knows nothing at all that would lead to the discovery of the guilty ones. Although rumor was rife with accusations of guilt during tbe first excitement following the crime, all the gossip has fallen to the ground, and there is nothing but a dark mystery, which no one Is able to un- fathom. The large reward offered for the arreat of the guilty men will probably stimulate the hunt and may lead to developements. Pretty things to buy and good things to eat at Presbyterian sale, Deo. 14th.

The semi-monthly meeting of the Altou Ministerial Association was held Monday morning at the Cherry street oqapel, the President, Rev. M. Jameson, being tbe boat of the occasion. It was a pleasing innovation on the ordinary meetings of the body, in that the wives and families of members were invited. The paper of the morning was read by Rev. M. Jameson on the theme, "Some Curiosities of Burmese Thought." It was replete with information gathered by a careful student and observer during a residence of rieariy twenty years in Burmah. The essayist gave an exposition ot the cosmogony of the Burmese, with its unique ideas of the great changes in tbe world systems during the periods of destrnctior, Interval, renewal and stability; and also, of the religious conceptions of the Buddhist system. The paper elicited expressions ot most hearty appreciation from all present. After listening to the essay, the pastors, with their wives and members of •their families to the number of nineteen, sat down to a tempting repast which had been provided. After ample justice had been done to the good things of the table, toasts were called for Rev. M. W. Twing, and responded to, as follows: "The Alton Ministerial Association," Kev. <>Ir. Rice; "Our Host and Hostess," Rev. Mr. Fairbank; "Christian Fraternity," Rev. Mr. WHkersbn; "Our Pastors," Mrs. Powers; "Our Helpmeets," Rev. Mr. Sanborne. The meeting was well designed to foster a spirit of sympathy and comradeship among tbe pastors which is not only moat enjoyable to those personally concerned, but alao conducive to the advancement 'of the great work in which ail are alike interested.

G CITY ENJOINS "SANNER. 1 Judge Harwell Issues Temporary Injunction on Alderman Wegener to Restrain Him from Quarrying on tas- ton Street. A temporary injunction was Issued by Judge Hartzell of the Circuit Court today, restraining Alexander Wegener from quarrying rook from Baa- ton street between Seventeenth and Eighteenth streets. The injunction was issued by the court on petition of Corporation Counsel Baker, who, in his bill of complaint Hied in the court today, alleges that the defendant, Mr. Wegener, is quarrying rock from the streets without necessary privilege from constituted authorities. Toe suit for injunction is brought by the city for the purpose of precipitating a suit in court to teat the validity of the lease given by the city to Mr. Wegener under the administration of Mayor Brenholt. In the trial of Mr. Wegener on the charge of unlawfully quarrying in the streets.'Mr. Wegener was acquitted by the jury on sworn testimony of former city official3 thao permission bad been given Mr. Wegener, although official record was not made and the lease was ^pat while in the custody of city officials. The present administration i» determined to put the claim of Mr. Wegener to a test in court and the injunction process seemed the only way to bring about the desired end. The date of hearing of the case will be set, and then Judge Hartzell will decide whether or not Mr. Wegener's claim ie a valid one and will aUo pass upon the question of making the injunction permanent.

Degenhardt completed his contract for constructing the sewer for draining Smith's pond last night, and after turning tbe water into it today, turned the sewer over to the city, the City Engineer and the chairman of the Sewer committee being present to accept it officially. The sewer is constructed from the north line of Eighth street to the south line of tbe street, at a level with the lowest part of the pond. Several .plans for draining the water from tbe pond have been tried, but ,have been of varied and short live i success. No plan was feasible except to drain the water Into the hollow on Alton street between Seventh and Eight streets, where is a dry well that it is hoped Will succesBf ully accomplish the drainage of the water. The pond has been a menace to public health, and wag declared a nuisance long ago. The sewer to drain the water is of 12'nch pipe and coat the city 8228. Go to M.
