THECommtihweal army is not without
mtlsic, one of Gen. Coxey's first acts
being to appoint a musical director and
supply him liberally with war songs for
the tramping army. One of these is an
adaptation of "After the Ball" and the
"After the march ia oer,
After the firet of Mai.
After thexe bills are passed child.
Then we will hae fair play;
Man j a heart will be happ.
As to their homed they'll uwaj.
For we will huvo no interest on boml.

Another runs to the tune of "March

"Come, ralli to onr standard every man today.
And show the bloatod bondholder we mean just

The objective point of the moving army
is the capitol grounds at Washington,
and if they continue to increase and to

The Mulct law, the new liquor statute
of Iowa, is attracting considerable atten
tion. An exchange gives these as its
main points: "Every saloon keeper
must give a bond to the amount of three
thousand dollars and pay for license a
tax of S600 a year, which latter amount
however may be increased at the option
of the town where the 6aloon is estab
lished. Such license however shall not
be issued without the consent of every
property holder within 50 feet of his
building and liquor can not be sold
within 300 feet of any church or school
house. No screens must be allowed be
fore the windows, no seats provided in
the place where the liquor is sold, neith
er billiards or any game of that kind. A
strange feature of the law is that the old
prohibition law is not repealed, and any
saloon keeper can be arrested and fined
tinder the old law, whether he pays his
license or not One half of the license
fee goes to the town and the other half
to the county. Another requirement of
the law is that no license cau be issued
if no petition is presented signed by 65
per cent oi me legal voters or the pre
cinct where the saloon is to be estab
lished." KtiladxtoneV Spiritual and Temporal Power.
All of which brings us to the observa
tion that the position which Mr. Glad
stone has so long held among us is much
more that of an English Pope than
merely that of an English Prime Minis
ter. He is the head of the church for
practical purposes, much more than the
Archbishop of Canterbury, whom he
made, or than the Queen, whose ecclesi
astical position is strictly ornamental.
Mr. Gladstone's temporal power waB
nothing to his spiritual power. His
temporal power, indeed, may be said to
rest on his spiritual power. He can
divest himself of the former. The latter
will cleave to him while life lasts. He is
the only man whose opinion on questions
of righteousness weighs much with the
masses of our people. He is, therefore,
in a very real way the keeper of their
consciences. That function he will re
tain in his retreat at Hawarden, and this
. spiritual power may yet be used as it
. was in 1876 to the confounding of those
- to whom he has handed over the respon
sibilities of temporal administration.

ELI PERKINS ON RECIPROCITY.
How Canadians Chadded Over the Beneftts
to Them from the Wilson Bill.
Freeh news from Canada was brought
to Chicago over the Grand Trunk limited
by Eli Perkins yesterday.
"Yes," said Eli at the Palmer House
last night, "I brought what truth I could
from Canada on the limited, but to bring
it all I would have had to take a freight"
"How do the Canadians feel?" he was
"Well, they feel bad. They expected
a boom when the Wilson free-trade-with-Canada
bill was to bring, but which has
been nipped in the bud by the Senate.
Sixty days ago a Toronto editor said to
me: 'Now the miserable Yankee annex
ation sentiment will be strangled. The
Wilson bill takes off all tariff against
Canada, and our farmers will be as well
off as yours. We used to pay the States
$10,000,000 a year to get our sheep, hor
ses, hops, barley, wheat, butter, cheese,
apples, and farm produce into the Amer
ican market We are tired sending our
butter and eggs to England. We tried
it, but they spoiled on the way, and our
farmers had to pay this McEinley tariff
to get the stuff into the States. Our
products were all just the tariff lower in
Canada than they were in the States.
Then our poor farmers had to pay a 40
per cent tariff on American machinery
to run his Canadian farm with. It has
nearly killed us this McKinley bill.
Our farmers have run behind. Many
have abandoned their farms and gone to
Dakota. Towns began to be deserted.
We grew smaller and smaller and the
Americans grew large and larger.'
" 'What then?' I asked the Canadian.
"'Why, the Wilson bill took the tariff
off lime, coal, barley, and everything we
send to your market. It threw this $10,-
000,000 which we had been paying you
back to us, and our produce began to
advance in Canada.'
" 'And you were glad?'
'"Glad! Why Mr. Perkins, we jumped
with joy. We could have hugged that
blessed Democratic party. We went
round and shook hands with each other.
We rejoiced with bated breath, because
we didn't want the Yankees to know how
glad we were. We didn't even print it
in the newspapers. Think of it, we had
a tariff of 2 cents against your cotton
cloth and ours was to go to you Yankees
free. Our lime and coal and lumber
and farm products and organs could
slump down on you, aud you couldn't
send a single thing to Canada! Wilson,
I say, took 810,000,000 which McKinley
put in your treasury, and tossed it over
to us. Glad? I should say so!'
"'And what now?'
" 'Why our farmers are all getting sick.
Our expected boom has been side track
ed by Brice, Gorman, Hill, and a lot of
McKinley Democrats in the Senate.
They say they don't want to give 810,
000,000 and put an income tax on the
Yankees to make it up. And so our peo
ple all along the border began to talk
about annexation again, for we can't
stand the old McKinley tariff much
longer. It is bankrupting our farmers
and draining our country by emigration.
No level-headed farmer will stay in a
country where all farm produce is 25 to
40 per cent lower than it is across the
line. When we got the Wilson bill we
were as expectant and hopeful as the old
Yankee was who ran his horse ten miles
through a snow storm to court Widow
" 'Widder Jenkins,' he said, with a Wilson-bill
smile as he brushed off the snow,
'I am a man of business. I'm worth
810,800, and I want you for a wife. I
give yon three minutes in which to
" 'I don't want ten seconds, old man,'
she replied with a McKinley chuckle as
she shook out the dish cloth. 'I'm a
woman of business, worth $16,000, and I
wouldn't marry you if yon were the last
man on earth. I give you a minute and
a half to git
" 'Yes, Mr. Perkins,' said the tornado
editor, 'that's jnst what that McKinley
Senate, backed up by the McKinley Re
publicans are going to say: ' Git, yon
Kanucks, git!" '
"Why don't they help you up at
Ottawa?' I asked.
" 'Help us up at Ottawa!' he exclaim
ed. 'Why, they are all Englishmen up
there. They love England better than
Canada. They would rather have every
Canadian farmhouse a poorhonse with
an English flag on it than to have it a
palace with the stars and stripes waving
over prosperity. The fact is we Cana
dians have got to sit down on the Sir
George and Lord Domby aristocrats who
stick like barnacles around Ottawa; and
the young brains of Toronto have got to
make Ontario the forty-eighth State in
the American Republic, and make us all
as rich as that Republic has made New
York or Michigan.'
"That's what the Canadian with an
immense McKinley intellect said," and
then Eli took Perkins and got onto the
train. They are going to tell more truths
in Farmer City tomorrow night.

A Matter of Precedence.
Crossing a field one day, President
Lincoln, it is said, was pursued by an
angry bull. He made for the fence, says
Life's Calender, but soon discovered
that the bull was overtaking him. He
then began to run aronnd a haystack in
the field, and the bull pursued him; but
in making the short circles around the
stack, Lincoln was the faster, and, in
stead of the bull catching him, he caught
the bull and grabbed him by the tail.
It was a firm grip, and a controlling
one. He began to kick the bull, and the
bull bellowed with agony and dashed
across the field, Lincoln hanging to his
tail and kicking him at everv iumn.and.
a8 they Aw along, Lincoln yelled at the
bull! '0arn you, who began this fight?" i
The city council met in special session
Thursday evening, all present except
Councilman Galley, who was in Omaha,
E. D. Fitzpatrick and Louis Swans as
canvassers assisted the clerk in making
the official review of the vote, which was
read by the clerk, the president of the
council, Mr. Gray, declaring the result in
each case, which was as stated in last
week's Jodrkal, except for school board;
each candidate received ten votes in the
suburban portion of the district, making
the totals, as returned: Lehman 295;
Turner 271; McAllister 240; Welch 231.
A majority of all the votes cast being
in favor of the water bonds proposition,
it was declared carried.
The council then adjourned.
At the meeting Friday evening, were
present Councilmen Galley, Gray, Hoff
man, Newman, Spoerry and Welch and
Mayor Schupbach. There were also an
unusual number of visitors, probably in
terested to see how the old administra
tion would close and the new one open.
Minutes of previous meetings were
read and approved.
The committee to whom had been re
ferred the application of Peter Schmit
for hose, reported that the same could
be used at the waterworks plant of the
city and therefore is not for sale. Re
The request of the fire department for
a light after midnight which had been
referred to the committee with power to
act, was turned back to the council, the
committee believing that it would be
better for the incoming committee to
look after it.
The committee on finances reported
the examination of the report of the city
treasurer from December 1, 93, to March
1, '94, and they found cash on hands in
various funds 8127.10; license school
fund 82,380. The report was placed on
The report of the chief of police for
March showed the arrest of 72 "bnms,"
from one to six at n haul; three for
theft; one for assault; three for fighting
and one for burglary.
The report of Police Judge Hudson
showed no fines collected for March.
Report referred to committee on police.
H. J. Hudson as justice of the peace
filed his supplemental and final report
of collections made for occupation tax,
which was referred to the committee on
police. It gave a detailed statement of
Tho supply company that had guaran
teed the water meter and then presented
a bill for $57 for repairs, sent a commu
nication cancelling the bill. On motion
of Spoerry, the cancellation was gra
ciously accepted, and this was done by
a unanimous vote.
The committee on waterworks report
ed the examination of bills for coal, etc.,
paid by the city treasurer and that they
found them correct.
Just as the time came for turning over
their stations to officers elect, President
Gray of the council asked leave to say a
few words. Addressing Mayor Schup
bach and gentlemen of the council he
said that as the time had come for the
parting of the ways, he wished to express
thanks to the mayor for the high per
sonal consideration which he had
always extended to members of the
council and to Mr. Gray himself. He
knew of no instance where personal or
party interest had been allowed to inter
fere with the action of the council; the
public interest had at no time been
allowed to deteriorate. The president
of the council then alluded to the war
horse of the First ward (Spoerry); to the
oleagenons statesman of the Second
(Hoffman), and to the statesman of the
"silk-stocking" ward (Newman), their
presence around the council board would
be missed, but, as the soldiers after the
great war were absorbed without detri
ment, so likewise they would also be
absorbed without detriment to the com
munity or themselves.
Mayor Schupbach responded by say
ing that the office of mayor is a very
hard one to fill, and that, while during
his term, he had seen some very dark
days, there were also some light onea
He said he had made mistakes, but not
intentional ones. He said that he had
especially tried to take charge of the
poor, the needy and the sick, and with
the aid of the council and appointed
officers, to do all to the best of his ability.
The press, or at least a part of it, he said,
had kept tho people informed of the
doings of the mayor and council, for
which he was thankful. He said that
the incoming administration of the city's
affairs had been entrusted to safe hands,
and he felt sure that it would be suc
cessful, wise and all that
Councilman Spoerry said that in re
tiring from the very lucrative office
which he had held two years, he wanted
to thank his worthy co-conncilmen for
their uniformly courteous treatment
What he had had to say on questions
arising before the council had not al
ways been in choice American language,
but he thought he had succeeded in
making himself understood. Reference
having been made to his religious turn
of mind, he said that he had reason for
feeling strongly on that subject, and he
was gratified to know that the supreme
court of the state of Nebraska held the
same opinion that he did as to the taxa
tion of property not wholly used for
religious purposes. One other thing be
wished to say and that was that he had
been called a coward for not pushing
the collection of 8250 of occupation tax
due from saloon keepers. He submitted
it to the members of the council to say
whether he had showed the white
feather on that subject. As to his suc
cessor in office, he (Spoerry) had been
twitted with being defeated by an ex
Confederate soldier; he would say that
many a time the present council had
been at a loss to find money to pay
claims with. If the coming council find
any difficulty in that line, they can call
upon my successor for some Confeder
Mr. Wells smiled gracionsly and said
At 9:15 Mayor-elect G. W. Phillips,
took the gavel, E. O. Wells' succeeding
H. T. Spoerry: J. S. Murdock succeed
ing C. A. Newman; J. E. Hoffman con
tinued to serve, Arnold Oehlnch not
having qualified. Mr. Phillips, in
assuming the chair as presiding officer,
desired to say that his acquaintance
with the members of the council was an
assurance to him that any shortcomings
on his part would be generously over
looked by them. He would endeavor to
be governed at all time, by what he re
garded his duty under the laws which
govern all of us. He hoped that when
he should retire from office he would be
free from any charge of favoritism, and
that he might be credited with the same
respect and expressions of good feeling
as have characterized the council just
closed. He then spoke of some matters
of importance to the city, which he had
noticed the council had had under dis
cussion for some time, viz: the increase
of the water supply. He had often
thought that it would be well for the
city to consider the advisability of sink
ing a well for artesian water. He
thought that there should be prepared
an accurate and full statement of the
financial standing of the city.
Galley, Welch and Wells were ap
pointed a committee to whom was re
ferred the applications for liquor li
censes. During an informal discussion of the
occupation tax, and how it should be
paid the council learned that two saloon
keepers, viz: Brandt and McTeggart had
not yet paid their occupation tax for the
Galley, Murdock and Wells were ap
pointed a committee to provide suitable
place for council meetings.

Adjourned to Monday evening.
At the meeting Monday evening all
were present, including Councilman
Oehlrich who qualified and took his seat
There was a halting between opinions
as to how the record should be made,
whether the "old" council should be re
corded as adjourning nine die, or simply
the officers elect taking the placeH vaca
ted and the session continuing, the latter
being the fact, it was ordered that the
record so read.
Councilman Galley of the committee
to whom had been referred the applica
tions for license, said they-liad no writ
ten report to make. Some of the appli
cations did not yet have the receipts
required, and as to sureties they thought
best to refer to the council.
Those applications which were accom
panied by receipts were then taken up
in order, and license granted as follows:
V.A. Macken.with S. E. Marty, Eugene
Macken, Wm. Callahan and Henry Eugel
Samuel Gass with John Bredehoft,
Louis Held, A. Runge, Henry Ragatz
and Henry Gass as sureties.
S. J. Ryan, with J. B. Delsnian, J. W.
Byrnes, John Powers, James Haney and
C. E. Hartley as sureties.
J. P. Abts, with Albert King, Theo.
Bernarsch and Otto Mens as sureties.
Paul Hoppen with John Wurdeman,
G. G. Leusche, Henry Wilke and Henry
Backenhus as sureties.
Fred. Lnchsinger and F. Mussel man
with M. Jenny, F. Lnchsinger, Jacob
Adams and Adam Smith as sureties.
Wm. Hagel with Paul Hagel, Fred.
GottBchalkand Wm. Gerhold as sureties.
Wm. Bncher with Peter Zy back, Jacob
Lewis, A. Matthis, Fred. Stenger, I.
Gluck and H. Groteluschen as sureties.
Columbia Brewing Co. (Kersenbrock
& Mack), with I. Sibbernsen and George
Berney as sureties.
It was ordered that as applications are
completed they be referred to the same
committee for investigation.
Druggist's permits were then granted
as follows: To C. B. Stillman, with C.
E. Morse, C. F.Gleason and C. A. Srieire
C. E. Pollock and C. D. Evans with J.
H. Galley and Gus. G. Becheras sureties.
A. Heintz, with Jacob Greisen, B. W.
Ellis, E. J.Ernst and E.Pohl as sureties.
The committee to whom had been re
ferred the finding of a suitable place for
holding the meetings of the council
recommended that a contract be entered
into with the Commercial Bank fur the
use of the present quarters at $100 a
year, payable quarterly. Adopted.
The official bond of Joseph F. Berney,
city treasurer elect, in the penal sum of
88,000 to the city, was then approved,
with Eva Berney, George Berney and O.
T. Roen as sureties. This was done after
considerable discussion as to whet Iter
88,000 was sufficient to cover the amount
coming into the city treasurer's hands
as treasurer of the school board also.
This, again, involved several questions
which doubtless will form a nucleus for
some interesting discussions before long.
As for instance: Has the city or any
of its officials the right to use school
funds in any business sense? Is not the
city, by its treasurer, the mere custodian
of the school fund, answerable for its
keeping? Has the city council any
right to regard it is a city fund proper
at any time, for any purpose whatever?
When the treasurer reports that he has,
by order of the school board, transferred
any sum to the school fund, how can
this be made to tally with the law? The
city treasurer, being by virtue of his
office, treasurer of the school board, has
not the council a supervisory control
over him as such treasurer?
Mayor Phillips remarked that it seem
ed to him that the council should take
some steps to make the settlement with
the former city treasurer. It was or
dered that this work be done by the
finance committee to be appointed.
Council then adjourned subject to the
call of the mayor.

About six o'clock Saturday evening
someone noticed fire in one of the rear
windows in Janecek's opera house. An
alarm was given, but before tho firemen
arrived, the fire had been put out. The
fire originated from an electric light

either by accident or design, one end
resting on the wire, the other on the
woodwork of the window. When the
circuit was turned on, the fire resulted.

Castoria is Dr. Samuel Pitcher's prescription for Infants
and Children. It contains neither Opium, Morphine nor
other Narcotic substance. It is a harmless substitute
for Paregoric, Drops, Soothing Syrups, and Castor Oil.
It is Pleasant. Its guarantee is thirty years' use by
Millions of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and allays
feverishness. Castoria prevents vomiting Sour Curd,
cures Diarrhoea and Wind Colic. Castoria relieves
teething troubles, cures constipation and flatulency.
Castoria assimilates the food, regulates the stomach
and bowels, giving healthy and natural sleep. Cas
toria is the Children's Panacea the Mother's Friend.
" Caatorla la an excellent medicine for chil
dren. Mothers bare repeatedly told me of its
good effect upon their children."
Da. G. C. Osgood,
M Castoria. is the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day ia not
far distant when mothers will consider the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the Tarious quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, Fx4Vne syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graTes."
