THE STATE CAPITAL. ffo Quorum Yesterday in Either House of the Legislature. Speculations on tlie Subject of Railroad Legislation. Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune . ABSENT, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. Springfield, April 23. —This is tho one hun dred and eleventh day of tho session, and there Is not a quorum in either House. The General Assembly grows gradually small and ruinously lees every week, so that, if the session lasts much longer, it will disintegrate and fall to pieces one of these days. Pay-day comes on May 1, so that there will bo quorums for two or three days this week. Tho clergymen who invoked tho Divine blessing this morning hod small audiences, about one-third of each body being present. From Cook County there wore two Senators—Dow and Williamson—and four Representatives, Brad well, Perrier, Rountree, and Ed. Taylor, tho latter being far more assiduous in his duties than members elected by the people. There will bo a scattering at the end of this week, adjournment or no adjournment. .The House did some ille gal business, jumping bills out of their order, end otherwise indulging in fantastic legislation. .. The farce was ended by tho firmness of the Speaker, who very properly refused to do busi ness without a quorum. In Ui© Senate mere wore twenty-three present, and it adjourned. f TUB RAILROAD BILL. L? the chances preponderate in any direction theV are in favor of tho Senate receding, and passing the House Railroad hill straight. Sena tors say they will leave tho responsibility with the House, just as if they can do so—as if they can stoitifv themselves and evade their respon sibility by an excuse so lame. A better justifi cation for recoding would ho that, nnlesss they did so, no * railroad bill would pass, and that they prefer to swallow the ob noxious sections rather than kill ‘ the whole bill. Eight Senators must change to made up the twenty necessary to recede. That they will be forthcoming before the end of the week is not improbable. Mra. Dunham intends, If he gets tho opportunity, to reply to. Mr. Hay, taking the ground that if the Loeislatnre has the power to divest railroads of their charters under the common law, which Mr. Hay admitted, that it has the power to impose fines for viola tion of tho common law; that if it has power to Inflict capital punishment on railroads, it has power to fine them, on the principle that the greater includes tho less. LATER. The Senators who were here this morning, mud those who arrived since, have been speculat ing on what they should do to-morrow when vot ing on the motion to recede from the Senate 'amendments to the House Railroad bill. Of the nineteen who voted to retain tho sections, Fer xcll will vote against receding on general princi ples ; Palmer because the bulk of his constitu ents desire he should, and Baldwin, so as to got s Conference Committee, and amend the sec tions. Youngblood, who voted on the other tide, will vote to recede. As near as can be as certained to-night, it will bo difficult to secure the constitutional majority necessary to accept the House hill with the obnoxious sections in cluded. SPECIAL LEGISLATION. Senate hill 41.5, passed in the interest of the Chicago, Lafayette & Cincinnati Bailroad, to as sist it in its fight with the Chicago, Danville & (Vincennes Eoad, having received the Governor’s .signature, will bo law in July. There are grave doubts of the constitutionality of the bill, . which massed for a particular purpose, and. being in tentionally special in its application, it is general In scope, and, under its sweeping provisions, in calculable mischief may be wrought. The bill, <es passed, reads as : sA Box for an act to amend an act entitled “An act to provide for the incorporation of associations r that may be organized for the purpose of construct ing railways, maintaing and operating the same, for prescribing and defining the duties and limiting the powers of such corporations, when so organ- approved March 1,1872. fiEQXiON 1.

The Now “West Sido Captain of Police* and wliat He la Expected to Accom plish. As stated in The Tribune on Saturday, the Chief of Police and the Commissioners have carried the war against tho gamblers and sedne tionista into the very citadel of the enemy, - by the removed of inefficient officers. Capt. Charles French, who might have mado for himself a splendid record by persevering energy in his crusade against these vile characters, had grown lazy with promotion, and careless of tho city’s, welfare. Hence ho preferred neglecting orders to carrying them out. Under tho late lamented heads of. tho Department this might have lasted for years. Mr. Washburn is no such man, however. Ho assumes, all tho responsibility forth© good or bad conditioner the city, and has consequently resolved that hie subordinates shall obey him when they receive orders from him. And so it happened that Mr. Washburn called for tho healthy Captain’s re moval. Tho healthy Captain saw at once that his time had come. His days as healthy Captain were numbered. While dreadfully unwilling to lose a good situation, bo was equally unwilling to lose everything. Ho consequently express ed to the Major a "determination to re sign tho Captaincy if ho might pre serve his Sergeantcy. The Major referred bim to Mr. Tulev, and from that learned gentle man he obtained the cheering information that ho could resign as he wished, and retain the sub ordinate position. His Honor, on receiving tho resignation, looked around for a successor. The charter called for tho appointment of a Sergeant to fill tho position. After a very brief consulta tion with the Commissioners and Superintendent, Sergt. Louis J. Lull was agreed upon unani mously, and was nominated to tho Council last evening. If Lull continues to wage war as ho has here tofore done, with the same determination to obey orders that he has shown in tho past, and imitates his Chief in being very obstinate in the right direction, the change is one which the people of the West Division will hail with the profoundest satisfaction. Lull is young and vigorous, and the faults he possesses will disappear with increasing age. He has justified his promotion to tly) Sergeantcy,and, it is hoped, will sustain the good reputation he has already earned. Commissioner Sheridan calls him tho “ press candidate,” because his promotion from tho ranks three or four years ago was heartily advocated by the reporters, whose continual vigilance round tho stations enabled them to detect good characteristics among the officers. Lovers of good order will find him faithful, active, vigilant, and persever ing ; gamblers and thieves will oiscover that he is tireless, fearless, merciless, and incorruptible. This is as it should be, for tho West Division contains two-thirds of <he gambling dens, and other sinks of abomination, which have thriven amazingly during tho past five or six years, and it wiil take all the energy and severity of Capt. T.nii to wipe them out. If he succeeds, it will bo through careful and persistent effort, and not through any “now-broom ” activity. He has all the leavings of his two predecessors to cart off, and the contract for this moral scavenger-work is no fcriflo. There was a May-moving among the West Side gamblers on Saturday night. A South Sider, hearing of the preparations for Captain Biickey’s cigar-store raid, gave the alarm across the river that a general descent was to ho made upon the gambling dens of both divisions. Tho rumor gained ground with wonderful speed, and hy 9 o'clock tables and lay-outs had disap peared, and the bandits had deserted their Strong- THE CITY IN BRIEF.

THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE. TIE TRIBUNE. WM an Exclaie Has to Say of Our AWanir. The Tribune as an Ad vertising Medium. “Fifty-Four Columns of New Advertisements.” How It Strikes an Outside Journal “What Advertising Does and What It Indicates.” Prom the St. Joseph (Mo.) Gazette. The growth of Chicago Is a phenomenon which has ex cited tho wonder of the world. No other city in any part of our now and developing country compares with Chica go in the immense activity and enterprise of its citizens. Wo published two Sundays since that The TnißtnCE of that wonderful town had fifty-fovr columns of now miscel laneous and commercial advertisements, in a tingle day. And this was not greatly in excess‘of the exhibit of other days. This in fine type was, wo believe, at fifty cents per line. This is indeed something wonderful. In no other city in the world of its population would such an event be possible. Bnt It shows the spirit and vim of the people, and especially of those who do burin ess. It Is not even a contested point that the business men of Chicago are tbq most enterprising, and for tho amount of their capital the most successful in the world. They do not deceive them- selves. They are sot gulled. They adopt so useless or false means. They advertise. They advertise more than any other men In America. They advertise because it pays them. It is one of tho moat effective of the mease they use. ORNAMENTAL IRON WORK. Gould Bros. & lie, 149 & 151 State-st., Chicago.
