Wi: noticed by tho last issuo of tho
Clinton (III.) Public that our old boss,
Hon. Kicliard Butler, had Boldhiapapor.
Mr. Hutler, the venerable editor of that
paper, has been in tho Kurvices for near
ly fifty years, and has occupied tho edi
torial chair for about forty yenrs on var
ious papors. Wo havo known Mr. Hut
lor for '27 years, and to him wo nro in
debted for what wo know about tho "art
preservative of all arts." In 1807 K. I
lirown, ono of tho prosont editors of
tho Hams Horn, published in Chicago,
purchased tho Oborlin (Ohio) Nows, tho
oftlco in which we comnioncod tho trade,
and uttor running it a year, sold it to
Mr. llutlor, and out of chaos he brought
prospority. Wo labored in the capacity
of devil, compositor and foreman for
him for soino llfteen yours, and will nov
or havo roason to regrot it. Ho is ono of
tho beat nowBpapor men in Illinois, and
ono of nature's nobleinon, and in his
withdrawal from tho journalistio Held,
tho fraternity, tho 6tuto over, and tho
peoplo of Clinton havo lost an honest,
talented and fearless advecato of tho
causo. In fact, ho Iiiih vacated a posi
tion that cannot bo tilled by one man in
a hundred, He was virtually tho means
'of ro-kindling the spirit of enterprise
jfumoDg tho peoplo of Clinton, and by
f is indomitable will and hie zealous ad
vocacy of all public and privnto cntor-
prises, bo Anally startod the town to
growing, and from a vlllngo of 1800 ne
biw it grow to bo n city of 5,000 bouIb.
To him thoir praises should bo snng.
Our associations of cloven years on tho
Public make uh feel that tlio very dear
ties of other -.ears havo been ruthlessly
severed. Tho Public will ncarcoly main

u lifo of oiibo and pleaBuro after tho
hard-fought battlu of successful jour
nalism of llfty jenrs duration
Wo regrot that no argument took
place at tho last term c.f court over tho
merits of thu law providing for tho dis
continuance of township organization.
Mr. McN'eny only roforred to the statute
as a hodgo podge statute, while Mr.
(iilham never mentioned it at all. Talk
ing with him afterward ho outlined hiv
objections something as follows:
1. Thu statu seemed to provido that
tho people of O.ik Creek, Harmony, Glen
wood, Stillwater, Heaver Creek, Khu
Creek and Pleasant Hill should bo com
pelled to surrender their power to govern
themselves, because tho peoplo of Rod
Cloud, Guldo Hock and Hluo Hill
wished to havo n hand in governing
Tlio statute does not allow a school
district to bu divided, or a part of it an
nexed to another without tlio consent of
tho peoplo directed. Nor dooi thu con-
t-tilution permit a county to bu bo divid
ed without such consent.
Hut this statute permits tho voters of
cities and villagea to abolish tho govern
ments of township? twenty uiilt-H away.
It is a hingular thing for ono political
organization to abolish the existence of
an independent political organization
against its will, by a free election.
Again tlio statu seems to provido an
unfair, if not unconstitutional, dispo
sition of tho funds of the townships.
The townships taxed themselves for pur
poses peculiar to their township life.
The statute taken that tax and gives it
to the county generally. It would be
just as cquitablu to take thu money wo
raise for water a:-d tiro protection and
givo it to tho whole county, and it would
l)o just as fair to lot tho voters of Oak
Creek and Stillwater vote to abolish our
city government and put our city taxes
into tho county fund as to lot Red Cloud
city vote to abolish thotownahipgovorn-
ments and put their taxes into tho coun-
The city and tho townships havo no
business with each other and no relation
to each other except bo far as county
government and county taveH are con
cerned, and a statute that provideH for
the oting of ono to destroy tho exis
tence of the other is obviously contrary
to the spirit, ir not tho lutter, of the con
stitution, and could hardly bo upheld by
The constitutional provision that the
legislature shall enact proper legislation
to enable people who havo adopted town
ship organization to discontinue it, does
not mean that tho peoplo who did not
udopt and organize themselves into
towuships should do tho discontinuing.
It meaiiB that when the peoplo of tho
townships wish to surrender their self
government thoro shall bo a inothod pro
vided to return to commissioner govern
ment if the cities and villages bo willing.
A luw providing for tho discontinuance
of township government should provido
for thu consout of tno townships or a
mojority of tkom, beforo a general sub
mission to tho doctors of tho county.
UnlosHit do this its constitutionality is
at least questionable.
His principal point, had tho morits of
tho election been tried, was that tho
Rtatuto and tho constitution require tho
proposition to be voted for by a majority
of thofio voting nt tho election.
Tho words of tho statuto "majority of
tho votes cast on tho question" do not
mean majority of those voting for and
against discontinuance but a majority
of thoBO voting for, Hiobo voting against,
nnd those voting blank. Tho constitu
tion describes threo majorities:
First Majority of those voting for
Second A majority of thoso voting
lit an election.
Third -A majority of thoeo voting on
Tito tirst requires that thore shall bo
moru votes for u inousuro than thoro tiro
Tlio second requires that all tho voters
bo counted and that tho measure shall
roccivo the votes of more than halt of
The third which is substantially tho
statuto in this case, requires thut all tho
ballots on which tho proposition is writ
ten or printed, bo counted oithor "For,"
"Against" or blank, and that thoso writ
ton "For" shall equal tho sum of those
written "AguinBt" and thoso without any
"For or Against." Hoforo the Australian
ballot system wont into effect no vote
could bo said to be caBt on a quostion
unless tho question nppoarod on the bal
lot. A majority of tho votes cast on a
question might be much less than a ma
jority of the votes voted at tho oloction,
and possibly the framer of tho discon
tinuance statuto Intouded this, but tho
Australian ballot providod thut ovory
ballot should have tho quostion printed
upon it bo thut evory voto is now cast
upon tho quostion, and must bo counted
either For, Against or blunk and tho
words "majority of tho votes cast on tho
question, have como to have tho same
moaning ns tho words "majority of thoso
voting at tho oloction."
Unices tho discontinuance statuto is
construed this way it is unconstitution
al bccaiiBO tho constitution plainly
ruoanB that tho majority to discontinuo
shall bo at least equal to tho majority to
Mr. Gilliam's argument on thin head
would Iih too technical for general inter
est. It consistH mainly of comparisons
of tlio different poctiona of tho constitu
tion and tho decision of courts an to
rules of construction.
Wo must confess it has seemed to uh
very unjust thut tho peoplo of this city
Hluo Hill and Guide Koelt should havo
tho power to voto down tho right of Rolf
government for tho peoplo of tho out
side townships and for ono Tun Ciiikp
doea not boliovo in it. Wo never liked
so many supervisors to manage county
atraira but tlio now law docs away with
nil that. Tin: Ciiikp believes that it is
tho business of everybody to resume
that township organization continues
nnd that us rapidly as wo can tho county
should bo re-districted into its seven
commissioner disrUuts under the now
feloo Itowiml, 100.

amount f this Indebtedness U very large, and
I would suggest that this council gl;e It Im

Your attention Is called to other conditions
of Importance 1 tho water consumers or our
city. '1 here Is much complaint ubout tho very
por n,niillty of water that tliapeoule are pay

when good wutor Is most needed. 1 trust oa
will look carefully Into the subject of good
water for the city, Allow me to suggest that
joumnka a perianal iaspactlou of tho water
works, In this way you will bo butter abl to
decide what action Is best to take. I nm not
anxious to make a public expose ot the con
dition ot nith around jour city water plant, but
from a sanltaiy point f view, and thinking
that It is my duty w call your attention to the
stable s.out-hoiisos, (doing duty as such) built
up close to tho water works house, also wasto
water pipes running through thu walls, letting
reluso water and all other filth settle In thu
ground Just ahovo that which In foi city use.
A general eleaalug up Is needed. There are
much needed repairs on boiler, furnace and
pump. 1 am of the opinion that the whole
plant is not of much worth. It may he well
for you to consider a now location In tho near
future for elty water works, with a new
plant entirely; hut with this In view, tho first
step to be taken should bu to secure plenty of
I would ha In f.ivir of tho city owning Its
electric light plant and waterworks, and under
one system of mamigcment. The wator com
missioner should be Instructed to collect all
water lu adMince, as thu city needs thu mouey
diiultfiom this source, theru being no coal on
hand to run thu engine at the water .vorks
phmt. All hydrants and caps should be oiled
once a month. 'Hie water mains should bo
washed or blown uut oucu a month, on ac
count of tlio dirt that accumulates therein, In
casef fire this Is very Important.
Our sidewalks all oer tho elty are lu a de
plorablu condition. The street commissioner
should he Instructed to seu that they aro kept
In good repair. The city will do its part In
this line, and It Is the duty of the property
owners to keep the side walks la front of their
properties always lu god repair, With the
assistance of the property owners, in doing
tills wt will have good walks.
I would recommend a line ot sewerage
through the center ot Webster street, com
mencing at tho northeast corner of block S,
and southwest corner of blucK 4, thence run
ning south and omptylng Into Crooked creek.
This is a much needed Improvement. Huskiest
houses on each side of the street need some
thing of this kind to carry off wasto water,
This would alto drain Webster street.

It seems tlut water mains could be extomled
at a small expense in cortaln parts of tho city
especially tu Kaloy & Jackson's addition to tho
cltv so as to accommodate the citizens with

that tho bill lecently pusiu'i iiXes the

for chicory before the bounty can be
secured. Wherever sugar beeta can be
raised chicory can bo grown. This is u
subject that ought to interest id
