The City advertising alone a will go a Long Way towards guaranteeing the Success of such a publication. Another fact in this connection is that the great department stores of Chicago will not advertise in weekly papers but will in daily papers. A daily paper can be carried on in a manner to avoid Tho vast expenditures of the Chicago press and still be successful. A Job printing Otico can be made profitable by securing the town printing now and heretofore done in hic ago.

There is a limit in the extent to which a joke can be carried and it is unequivocally asserted by the people first above mentioned that this joke of the reformers is being carried to far. Tho wish that another election could be held soon. I la Eric is rejoicing among the anti corporation Republican papers at the election of Lepro tentative Cochran As speaker of the Illinois House and at the rebuke administered to minority representative crafts by governor Altgeld for his corporation proclivities. Tic silents on and near the Washington Boulevard in Austin and Oak Park thank the vindicator for its Victory in obtaining the Little sprinkling of water the Street has had and Hope that it will use its influence on the town Hoard so that it May understand the importance of keeping this driveway thorough sprinkled. Complaint is made to the vindicator that the Cicero town Hoard favors certain contractors by paying them Tho full amounts of their contracts on completion of their work while others Are compelled to leave a percentage in the town Treasury for one year. This is favouritism of tin worst kind. Uror Kinward Dover of Cook county has been charged by some South water Street merchants who wanted a change in the game Laws with demanding Money for his services in aiding them.

These charges Are contained in the indictments recently returned in connection with the Hawthorne race track. John lir Enock signed All the Bonds amounting to 10,0110.

What has become of the citizen s committee on fire Protection that held so Many Public meetings in Austin before the Spring election the Hoard of trustees at that time had a Survey made and plans drawn for police and lire alarms which embraced the whole town of Cicero. Col. J. W. Hennett was prominent in that movement but has not been heard from since on the subject. Are the members of that committee still alive Hon. Matt w. Ransom United states minister to Mexico now on leave of absence is in Washington. Lie says of that country Quot it is surprising to know How Large the american interest is in Mexico. I suppose that there Are from 200,000,000 to �00,000.000 of american capital invested in the Republic. All of the railroads except the one from Vera Cruz to the City of Mexico were built by american Money while great smelting works factories and other improvements have been inaugurated by americans. It naturally follows that the United states minister has a Good Many matters to constantly claim his attention but the mexican it government is disposed to be very Friendly with this country and the work of the minister is made As pleasant As Fiji res show that the assessments for taxes in Chicago Are less now than they were Twenty Livo years ago. The figures of Twenty live years ago and thereabout in which there was an approximation to the True values were obtained under an assessment system very different from that now in use. There was a commissioner of taxes for the whole City appointed by the mayor. He was selected for his knowledge of real estate values and his books were open to Public inspection. Tho assessments at this time were fairly honest. Hut As soon As the absurd system of town assessors was introduced there was a rapid falling Oil in the assessed valuation As a whole together with great irregularities Between individuals and Between the different parts of the City. The assessment system in Chicago Lias been an litter farce Ever since that time. Of Ciciro school Jand. School trustees have m a Lepan i Bave his the circa Money give to it Fohl Dalie ing.

Stone our local editor on the growth and the Humboldt Park District of Chicago which embraces Large portions of the fourteenth and fifteenth wards. It would sur i ise a visitor to observe the improvements that have been made in a very few years and the growth of population As Well. The article is Well Worth Reading. There is an important Reform movement on foot among the republicans of Chicago to purify the party Anil throw overboard the Quot Bosses Quot that have been controlling it for corrupt purposes heretofore. Tin vindicator wishes the movement every Success. At a meeting of club. Of the fourteenth and fifteenth wards held on wednesday evening. I St mayor Swift was endorsed by Resolution and the West sum v i n i a Roi adopted As their official paper. The metropolitan elevated Kail was Coniam has a ked permission from the Cicero town Hoard to build to fiftieth Street two blocks West of their present terminus. As this Extension is evidently meant for the accommodation Otilie Rahv a company and not Lor the people of Cicero the Hoard should refuse the request. No rights should be Eil t hat do not provide for the building of at one mile of Road with the need Xiv stations at Robinson and enral a venues. Hale the Cicero succeeded in making a valuable Sale of eighteen acres of their school lands now leased to the Pacific Railroad company. Negotiations Havo been under Way for some time and on monday last judge Jenkins in the United states circuit court gave permission to receiver a. Lawrence Hopkins of the Chicago Northern Pacific Railroad to Purchase from the school trustees of the town of Cicero a right of Way at a Cost of80,000. Ten years ago the a rent Western railway company leased from the school trustees 14s acres of land at an annual rental of it per cent on a valuation of400an acre. The lease was subject to a revaluation at the end of every ten years. The property is now valued at 5,000 an acre. The receiver in his petition to the court sets Forth the Transfer of the original lease to Tho Chicago amp Northern Pacific Railroad and says a ill the property is not required for the use of the Road and that the trustees Are willing to sell �1 right of Way 150 feet wide aggregating eighteen acres for 80,000. Tho receiver recommended the Purchase which was ordered by the court. This is a most excellent Salo for the school trustees of Cicero As they not Only get a Good Price for Tho eighteen acres but secure the running of streets which has been greatly desired through the rest of the Iso acre tract thus greatly enhancing its value and that of the adjoining property As there is not a Street now open there for a whole mile. It Ceplon of grand army for Lundn at Humboldt Park. A company of sri mls consisting mostly of mom Bors of Winfield Scott Post no. 445, grand army of Republic and their families gathered at Tho Homo of their Friend and Comrade Jap Tain Thomas Marker of 87.

Harker and miss Murray know precisely what to do to make matters agreeable and joyous for a company of friends and nothing was left undone on this occasion that could contribute to such an end. Tho Beautiful grounds around the House were adorned with chinese lanterns and other appropriate and tasteful paraphernalia and reminded one of fairy land. Winfield Scott Post has a drum corps that is unexcelled by any in Tho land its reputation having gone out through All Tho country and Tho martial music discoursed in Tho open air by this incomparable band at Comrado maker s last wednesday evening delighted not Only the company assembled but Tho inhabitants of the surrounding neighbourhood. Tho vocal and instrumental music in doors was of a High Grade and of a most captivating character and was greatly relished by the entire company. Tho army stories told were Good exciting and All True the conversation was mini ated and appreciative and Tho cup of enjoyment was full and overflowing. Ice Cream and cake were served in Rich Ell Sion and of a most delicious order by Tho worthy Host and hostess. Thoro was but one Little dispute to mar Tho Harmony of Tho occasion and that was As to whether col. A. Higgins ate three or four dishes of ice Cream.

That there will be others to take an interest in the Success of the paper he bides myself is a potent reason Tor putting the business in Tho hands of a joint Stock company.

The Irish members keep up their disgusting Wrangle and do everything they can to prejudice tin tile King Ash people. Air cause with it Aper on Quot life says the Isidor to say the hic ago building on says the Host in in Isican Edward at the athletic clubs he takes Oce several Nice tilings about club. The athletic club Michigan a Emie is i equipped of All the club houses in the country of a like nature and a composite of them All Quot it is impossible to Over Praise its Richness and completeness of appointments. The Liston Providence Detroit. Denver Ami new York athletic clubs All have line Eirv club houses but the Chicago club easily leads them certainly after this decided Praise its members can do better Handspring Ami lower More records. The Chicago athletic club has 2,0 10 members who pay a fee of �0 a year each and is Quot supported mostly by merchants it has a Erv Fine building with a spacious swim mag Pond on the first floor. Lum served to members in and place May be engaged i is Thev crafts it has often amazed us How a potty trading fetching and carrying politician like Clayton la crafts could Ever obtain the Ascendancy he has in Illinois politics. But that he has achieved Eminence and Fortune in his party there is no denying. We knew that to was shrewd for his own Benefit wily subservient and unscrupulous in attaining his end sends always apart from the Public welfare but could not account for his leadership Only on the ground that the parly desired such a Leader and that they did was evident always by his promotion to positions of Honor and profit. It is useless for a party to put Forth a claim for pub lie Confidence when its leaders Are Only Bast self seekers and according to a press interview with Coventon Altgeld the first democratic governor of Illinois in Many years this is All the claim that lion. Clayton la crafts has on the democratic party and that he is Only in the legislature to Subserve the interests of corporations and himself. Or. Crafts represents in the legislature the District in which the vindicator is published. He is the minority representative of the seventh District which is strongly Republican. This District has also a Republican state senator in or. John Humphrey and two Republican representatives in messes. Muir and Thiele. Or. Crafts has always managed to secure his own election by preventing a second Democrat from altering tin yield. And by soliciting cajoling and promising credulous democrats. Being a corporation cats Paw he has influence with the numerous corporations from whom he seeks and secures favors for men who need jobs and gets a Good name for himself among workingmen in this Way. But us a politician crafts is perfidious and will do or say anything to serve himself. That he in untruthful and unreliable is but too Well established. Crafts is our townsman and his interference in Home affairs was always baneful. Only for him there would not be to Day a local Republican party in Cicero. It became necessary to Lynn it to keep him from inter meddling in town matters. When the corporations need any dirty work done they Are sure to hire crafts for the Job. As he is always believed to be capable of doing anything desirable to accomplish the purpose they have in View. Now that crafts has been rebuked and discredited by the Bead of his party in the state Quot we think the local democracy should take warning and secure a better Man hereafter or they May have no minority representative at All. It is due to themselves As a party As Good citizens As honorable men that they should now throw this Huc stering charlatan this Man steeped to the lips in dishonest legislation overboard and maintain their Honor As partisans As Well As citizens.

J perhaps no portion of the City of Chicago has Boon so closely under Quot gang Quot Rule in politics As that of the fourteenth and fifteenth wards. Hut it bids fair to emancipate itself and take a prominent if not a leading position in political Reform. Last tuesday evening at a meeting of the Humboldt Republican club of Tho fourteenth Ward held in Loremer s Vilall il0- il2 North California Avenue we listened to rousing speeches made in favor of civil service Reform and endorsing mayor Swift s administration. On wednesday evening a similar meeting was held in Tho fifteenth Ward by Tho people s regular Republican club and such enthusiasm As was evinced Here is even rare to behold in Tho actual canvass of a heated Campaign. Scores of prominent men stood up and confessed that they could no longer submit to the machine Rule in politics and went Forward to Tho Secretary s desk and enrolled to Weir names upon Tho club roster. Following these two meetings on Friday evening Tho Young men s Republican club of the fourteenth Ward met at119 West division Street where Tho same enthusiasm prevailed and a Largo ill crease of membership ensued. These clubs Havo a portend that is Well worthy of consideration. They Point to honest Earnest efforts to obtain political Reform and should be a warning o the Quot gang Quot politicians to keep Quot hands off Quot from mayor Swift s Reform administration. All these clubs Are intense supporters of Swift and Tho mayor will not Hick for men of High business character ability and moral strength to defend him and uphold his Good work so Long As these Republican clubs continue holding such rousing meetings. And if Uliey do a is we feel Suro they will it Means death to Tho gangster element in Republican politics in the fourteenth and fifteenth wards and Tho dawning of a better and brighter Era in politics in Chi go.
