CITY CERTIFICATES, SOME MOIIB I'UOTBSTBD. “It’s an 111 wind that blows nobody good,” remarked a bank clerk gifted with notarial pow ers, Thursday afternoon, as he gazed on u pile of city certificates which was given him to pro test, payment having been refused by the Mayor (both of him), by the Comptroller (which claims to be twins), the City Treasurer, and the Finance Committee of the old Council. The notarial clerk regarded that pile of certificates with the same awe that a Black-Hills miner looks upon a £5 nugget developed when the no ble red tmm of “Sitting Bull's” trilic Is not looking. “ Four dollars and one-half fees—that U richcss,” exclaimed the young gent us lie gazed on the list of indorsers on each piece of paper.

Tlllfl BIG CONDUIT. A SFBCK OK THOIJIiI.B. Various rumors of b serious disturbance at the Fullerton avenue conduit—the exact na ture of the occurrence being then unknown reached tho ears of a Tuiuume reporter yester day afternoon, mid he, In order that the facts might be givcu correctly, called upon Mr. Fit/.- blmons, one of the contractors for the work, at bis residence, No. 70 Warren avenue. In reply to a question us to the extent of the disturbance, Mr. F. stated that he knew of nothing that should excite anv great attention from the press or public. “We had a man killed there some days ago, but that was no ticed in the paper*. I don't know of anything further Ilian that." “ Hove there been any strikes and discharging of employe* or any riotous actions I" asked the news-coherer. “nell,” said Mr. Fltxsimons. “the Board of j~ubllc Works discharged two of Us Inspectors a day or two ago. They had not been attending to their business properly, and had allowed the bricklayers to put dry bricks in, 1 suppose. You see Hie bricklaying Ip all done at night, and where that work is going on there is hardly room even for tho workmen and tho Inspector. Ho If the Inepccturc don’t attend to their busi ness there U no telling what the men might do.” After explaining that the bricks should bo nut lu wet, Mr. F. sail: “The men who were dis charged were named Marshall and Barclay. By cutting through the walls It was found that dry bricks had been put In In several places, but I do not suppose any tunnel (n the world was ever built where something of the kind did not occur,” “What was done with the brlcklayorsl” asked the reporter. “They were discharged, with their foreman, named Callahan.''said tueconlraclor. “ Asieuhl before,” be continued, “ there was man killed there some time ago. A quantity of earth from tiie roof of the tunnel fell lu on him and he died Instantly. Our chief trouble of late has been to SU.tuln the roof. Wu ibid that the soil Is no sandy, and there is so little clay mixed with it, that It U very hard to manage, and It takes a good drat of trnntHo to prevent an incident. Some of the men, immedl.it * ly nflcr Hie acci dent to the man be hue mentioned, refused to work t here, mid quit iiltogthur. But that did not affect us much.” , , , Further than Hint Mr. Fllzrimons hail nothing to nay. Alter further questions, which failed to c Hilt any Information an to any other unusual proceedings, the reporter withdrew. IjOCAIj EETTETIS. A TIMBLY SUGGESTION TO TUB NBXT GRAND JURY. Tt> the Editor nf The Tribune. Chicago, Juno 2.—A communication In your paper of this morning very opportunely revives the recollection of two almost forgotten stat utes In the criminal code of Illinois, one for the punishment of conspiracy, the other for the punishment of gamblers In grain who run “corners” on tho Hoard of Trade. The late “corner” In Imrlcv affords an ex cellent opportunity for testing whnt virtue there may be In those penal statutes. If Hoard of Trade rules are mere grass to the rings of Board of Trade outlaws, let us now see what virtue there is in stones. There Is no ambiguity In the laws referred to. The crimes are clearly detlncd. The penalties arc ample. There Is no lack of proof to convict, and there will be no hesitation in the courts to punish. Tho principals and brokers arc all alike liable, nml they are nil publicly known. Immunity baa rondure*! them bold, nml long sufferance, Indiscreet. The dram! Jury lifts but to cast out its drug-net. Thu haul will be sure. The times are propitious, it is n bad year all around for all sorts uf crookedness. Chickens ore coming homo to roost In astonish ing numbers. There Is music In the air, and it Is the “ Hogue’s March.” Chicago (Iran*! Juries have begun to whistle It hi cars long closed to private nnd public reproach. Ph>c It merrily, gentlemen of the Grand Jnrv, nml don’t forget our barley manipulators. The Board of Trade needs your services. When yon nrc done with Hie barley corner, we will point you to the “corn corner” of ln«t December. It Is a rich mine, a perfect Holcomb of jewels, whose names would adorn any criminal calendar In tho land. The time, we trust, lias ut length come for n reckoning. Verily, “The mill of the gods grinds blow, but It grinds exceedingly line.’* Let it grind. The grist Is ample. >Ve will cast in our gamblers, nml shall not com plain II they id! go for “ toll.” Vindcx. I’RUIOI.AT AND HIS TOOL*. 7t> the Editor of r/*« Tribune. CntCAHO, June 2.—Among the many cases of thieving conspiracies and rascalities nulfered by (he public uf bite, there bos been nothing no heartless, so mean, nml wicked as that of Periolat and his miserable accomplices In the County Iloar-d. They have not only stolen their thousands from the public, but robbed the poor objects of public charity of proper food and clothing, and obliged these helpless and pitiable creatures to cat and drink vile putrid, and worthless stuiT, that n humane man would not feed to an animal. Such abuse of the people’s charities nml such inhuman con duct of public ollicers in thcnlnelecnthccntury, in America, in connection with their wholesale stealing, should have a hearing before Judge Lyncln and the sonner the miserable scoundrels are oil the face of God's footstool, the better for the community. I notice among the many articles charged the county and paid for, in the boas thief Pcrinlat's account, are six chests black tea, net weight, oSO pounds; and six chests green ten, 720 pounds. How, any merchant knows that black teas con tain from 30 to 43 pounds iu the chest, and green teas 45 to 00 pounds, and the poorer the tea the lighter the net weight. Had the County Board adopted the suggestions of the Citir.cns’ Association and John H. Clough, and engaged an honest business man for a County Purchas ing Agent, it would have boon u saving to the tax-payers of over $150,000 the past year, and the paupers and the unfortunates would have hud wholesome food. Humanitt. TUB CITY-HAUL. Water-rents yesterday wen? $7,179. Much interest is manifested by City Hall hab itues in the doings ut the County Building. City-Attorney Tuthlll will devote next week to the disposal of the quasi-criminal cases called In the Criminal Court in which the city is the plaintiff. The Committee on Streets and Alleys for the South Division is called for tonlay ut 3p. m. iu the City Clerk’s cilice. So also is the Judiciary CoinmftUtc and tho Committee on Markets. The receipts in the License Department yes terday were SJSO. City Clerk Buiz is preparing a list of all unlicensed places, which will lie put before tbe Council. It will undoubtedly be given to City-Attorney Tuthlll, who will com mence Immediate action against delinquent par ties. Mr. Hayes mailed j’ostcrclny several hundred copies, in pamphlet form, of his address of May 1 to the Council on financial mutters, anil his reports, together with an ordinance pas.-ed, the Jirocceedings of the Council, and the opinion of mice McAllister. The imoka were scut to bankers all over the country. The Committee on Public Buildings, of which Aid. Van Osdel la Chairmau, held a meeting yesterday afternoon at the Chairman’s utllcc, No. 41 Clark street, there being a large quorum present. Mr. Van Osdel announced himself us greatly opposed to reporting to a reporter be fore reporting to the Council the action of the Committee, and declined to give any uews. It Is understood that some further develop ments in relation to Von llollen’s defalcation will soon he made, which wilHeiul to discredit the story of the Hankins Bros, alxjut the re turn of tlint ?h,OOO cheek. It is said there Is in existence a memorandum made liy Von llollen showing the amounts ho and a partner of his lost to the Hankinses,and it is not unlikely that It may turn up toplague these honest gam'hlers. Aid. Pearsons has gone Hast more to obtain a knowledge of the feeling of hankers ami capitalists of that section in regard to Chicago’s con-lit Inn, than to attempt to negotiate a loan. While he Is there he will endeavur to show thealms of the present Administration, and the wrong course that was being pursued by others. He will, in short, do all he can to aid the city’s credit. City Engineer Chcshrough takes exception to the statement made in tlie papers that there was a scarcity of water at the lire of Thursday night. We spoke to Marshal Benner about it, and he said lliat there was water enough. Mr. Cheshrongh states that one of the water-mains in the vicinity is too small. That had been known to the authorities for some time, tint financial embarrassments had prevented the substitution of a larger main. Mayor Iloyne’s attention was culled tonlctter In The Tuiiiunu directed to him, and culling upon him to take tlie gambling nulls and the gamblers In hand. The letter was signed “ A Buffering Father.” After reading It carefully, he said that he was sorry for the suffering father, mid, with a knowing smile, remarked: ‘‘Hickey and J will look after them pretty souu.” There low been no plan arranged for tM extcnnUialion of Hie pests, hut Bupt. says that lie W expecting some such move oh that asked for. When the question of a redm-tlon In Hie sal aries of policemen is brought up i« the Council, it will meet with much opposition, UH mjIIV Aldermen have openlv expressed their inten tions to that ctfeet, They regard the present salary us none 100 large when Hie vearlv ex penses for uniforms, which are frequently ruined hy struggles with desperadoes, und the constant liability to injury that a patrolman In subject to, are considered. Those who are op posed to a reduction of pay seem to he In favor of adding to the work or the policemen, us they think that sueh work as sidewalk-inspection, re porting of nuisances, and such small jobs, could tie easily done by them, anil much more expe ditiously than by regular inspectors, line Alderman has even said that lie would have the street-lamps lighted and extinguished by the police, os It Would save some expense for gas, llie policemen being aide to extinguish the lights when It was jKibslhle lu do without them, thus stopping the system of allowing them to burn till 7 o’clock lu thu morning, as bos fre quently been done. rUM.BUTON AVENUE CONDUIT. Ex-Comptruller Hayes sat in his olllcc yester day afternoon reading the report of the Grand Jury. A Tiuuusii reporter happened along, asked fur news, and Air. Haves culled attention to that pan of tno report which suvs that the amount of money given to the original con tractors for the Fullerton avenue conduit, over and above the original amount, was a mere gra tuity, and that there was a mystery about it that should he cleared up. Mr. Hayes then said us an explanation, “Thu lust Fullerton avenue conduit contract that was let by tbe Board of Fublle Works was against my earnest protest, because the amount was so large that 1 thought It best to defer It, the city U lng in a state of comparative poverty. lu regard to Norris A Co., the first contractors, the Com mon Council referred the matter to Mr. Colvin, the Corporation Counsel, and myself for examination. One was made which was thorough, and many witnesses were called In. The Corporation Counsel advised the Cuiu mlttee that tho contractors bad u right to re scind the contract and abandon the work be cause the city had fulled to incorporate proper profiles of the work iu tho document, and the THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: SATURDAY, JUNE 3, IB7G—TWELVE PAGES. city profiles dhl nnt properly represent the boII anil lay of the land. He also advised the Com mittee that the contractors could recover from the city ft just allowance. The Committee on this advice concluded that the city wan liable for the amount of tho labor nnd material, and re)>ortcd In the Common Council that a settle ment on that basis would probably be the most advisable thing that the circumstances would admit of, mid as favorable to the city as could be expected, as the city would thus pay for the work and material only, the contractors con senting to lose Incidentals, and the amount of nulllt less such sums as could bo obtained for it when the contract was rolct.” In conclusion, Mr. Hayes said: “ I find no ‘mystery’ about ibis matter at nil. All Hie evidence I spoke of just now was taken down by a short-bamt reporter, ami Is preserved in this olllco. ‘.fudge HHs could have bad It If he bad taken the trouble to ask for It.” That was all there was to be said on the con tract subject, nnd the: reporter naked If utiy paper bad gone to protest. There was some, Sir. Hayes said, several thousands, but none away Ironi borne. Some of It was due In New York. Mr. Haves thought It would not bo pnv tested. He had written to Mr. Coe, of the American ExclianiM* Hank, asking him to pre vent It If be could, at least till such time ns .municipal authority should be oHlclally decided to rest in some person or persons.

Fire Hnndrnl Tlimimml Persons Present Klsber Iho Winner. IMepnteh to .Vac }V>r - V Iftrnld. London, May Hl.—'The ninety-seventh Derby was decided to-day on the far-famed Epsom Downs, mid was won by Mr. Alexander Ualtazzl’s Klsber, by Buccaneer, out of Mineral. Fully 500,000 persons were present, Including every rough that London product 3. Among the vast crowd were several foreign Princes, but icre was much disappointment occasioned by the absence of the Prlcco of Wales, Ids Illness preventing bis attending. The Princess of Wales, the Duko of Cambridge, the Duke of Connaught, atu! tho Duke and Duchess uf Tcck were also absent. tub favorite. The field for the Derby, It was generally con sidered, was not an average one, ami It was prophesied that tho remit would be “ Petrarch first, the rest nowhere.” How correct was the prophecy, will he seen below. Petrarch, though not a big horse, Is handsome In tho extreme. He Is a son nf Lord Cllfden, a horse that unfor tunately tiled last fear, nml only twenty-four hours after his owner had refused $57,500 for lilm. America Is to bccongratuhited on having secured two of Ids brut sons In Winslow and Iluckdcn, the latter owned by W. Caltrlll, of Mobile, Ala. Petrarch was an unbeaten candi date last year. When aot half trained he won the Middle Park Plate of $17,300, the greatest 2-ycor-old race of the vear. This season, as already staled, he has won the Two Thousand Guineas, worth $25,000. He was bred by n miller In Sussex, who liought the dam for the Inslgnltl cant sum of $175 after die hud broken down in u race. Such Is the luck of breeding that from the broken-down mare lie Ims raised hulf-a-dozen of the best horses in England. The most dangerous antagonist to tho favo rite it was generally considered was the winner of the race, tho colt by Uuocanccr, out of Min eral, belonging to some very shrewd Hungari ans. This youngster, though of English parents, was bred by the Emperor of Austria, who about ten years ago purchased buccaneer for a com paratively small sum. Later on he made an equally fortunate purchase In Mineral, whose foal that she left behind In England developed into one of the best horses of the season, ami won the St. Legcr. This was Wcnlock. The Mineral colt, the name he was known by then, ran four times lost year, but won only once, the Dewhuret Plate, a race of considerable value. Uncharitable people say that the Mineral colt won ns often as bo was wanted, and certainly the Hungarians havo been running In and out with their horses. In thu betting, last nleliU the rntco ruled; Petrarch, 7 to 4; the Mineral colt, 4to I; Fore* runner, 7 to \\ Julius Ca*sar, 38 lo 1. On the course, just before the start, the odds were 11 to I against Petrarch, 4 to 1 against the Mineral colt, 7 to 1 against Skylark. 7 to I against Forerunner, 8 to 1 against All Heart, JJB to I against Great Tom, Wild Tommy, and Julius Ca>sar, while all the others were 50 to I.

Risnuu (tub mineral colt), by Buccaneer, out of Mineral, was otto of the foreign candidates for the Derby in the 220 sub scribers. His pedigree is English enough, hut it must he regarded by the turfmen of that “ tight little Island ” ns anuitlnoutal represent ative, for he was bred in Hungary. The Mine ral colt is half-brother to Wcnlock, the winner of thu Bt. Leger in 1872, his dam being bred by the lute William King (Mr. Latmde) at Ashby de-la-Launde, but she was sold to Messrs. Gra hams, of the Saudluy stud, and allowed to quit it before Wcnlock performed Ids great feat. Proving barren two seasons Mineral was sold lo go lo Hungary. In which country site was after ward bred to Buccaneer (who was expatriated from England several years ago), and her produce of 1878 was purchased by Mr. Alexander Baltnzzl. Mineral is still one of the matrons of the Imperial stud in Hungary, and u large price was recently declined for the marc. Klsber made his first appearam-u on an English race-course In thu July Blakts for 2- year-oids at Newmarket, when bo was not in good condition, and fulled to finish In thu first four, Lord Roscberry’s brown filly Levant being the winner, Hu nuxt appeared In the Sleteh worth Stakes, samu meeting, when he got a place, Lord Falmouth's Fautese and Count La Grange’s M. de FHgny being first and second. He, however, gave promise of developing into a colt of more than average excellence, uud ho made considerable progress between thu New market July meeting and the week preceding thu Cesurewitch, when he was so highly tried with his stable companion, Cmruleus (one year older), thu winner of thu Great Eastern Railway llnmtb'up, of 1875, that (lie Messrs. Baltozzl thought ho could scarcely bo defeated In tlio Middle Park Plate, thu race at Newmarket Sec ond October Meeting, which has always been regarded a* a grand criterion of ex cellence’, but the easy victory or Petrarch In that event is well known throughout (he racing world. Getting away badly,*thu Mineral colt never showed to thu least advantage lu thu race; hut the secret of bis not beginning with the body of his horses was well kept, mid when he was brought out for the Dewlmrst Plate, 7 furlongs, ut thu Houghton meeting, thu Messrs. Baltozzl backed him to win thu largest sum ever won on a 2-year-old race, being no less than SBO,OOO. Mr. J. Jl. Huuldswortit’s Springfield, who was meeting the unnamed colts ut even weights, stJuted mi even money ehunee, wlillu Mr. R. R. Christopher's Madeira, who had fin ished second for the Middle Park Plate, was also In good demand, notwithstanding an Industri ously-circulated report that she had been amiss after her performance behind Putrach In that , event. Thu Mineral cult had thu rueu In hand thu whole of thu way, and he simply romped home three- lengths in front of Hpringlield, while Lord Durham’s Glendulu was third. From that timu his owner knew he had u grand colt, and haring no engagement before the Derby he has been trained exclusively for lht> event. Through the winter ho progressed quite a* well us his supporters desired, though shortly after Christmas it was generally understood at New market that he >vus lame from curb. ThU was mil so; but a rather obstinate thormigbnln In ids olf nock gave Hayhoe, his trainer, a lot of trouble dining tins summer. After the Jmv meeting be was treated for this ailment by tho usual implication of a blister, and the. bursal en largement entirely disappeared; but. ibis was succeeded by the formation of a alight bony de posit on the outside of tho same joint. So far ha concerns the precise part where thlfl enlarge ment existed, the case was rather iv novel one, for It was nut mused by either n blow or a kick, which sometimes cause disarrangement of this part, and, short, of the cautery, there was only the orthodox remedy of a blister. To this tho enlargement succumbed, but It left a scar that the horse will carry to bis dying day. In many descriptions of the Mineral colt the little scar alluded to has been termed a “ spavin.” and in others a curb.” It Is neither one or the other, and did not in the least Interfere with the prep aration of the eolt for tho Derby. Klsber Is a good dark bay, with black legs, standing 15 hands 3 Inches. lie has a game looking head, a strong ami muscular but not loaded neck, well Joined to deep and grandly placed shoulders, and he Is high enough In his withers to cArry Ida saddle ami, rider In their Pier place—-fairly on his back—without fear of r supping on to his shoulders and Interfering with their free movement. His most extraor dinary points lie in Ids Immensely strong back and loins, and tho great muscular development In his wide-spreading quarters. His fore-arms ami thighs arc also models of muscular power, and he stands on excellently formed and very powerful legs, and well made, lough looking feet. In one of Ills lust winter’s articles upon tho Derby horses, “ Vigilant,” of the tyjortonum, said of the Mineral colt: ” There Is not among the whole of the Derby candidates that I have yet noticed one with morn weight-carrying pow er than the eon of Huccaneer, and I have no fault whatever to find with him except that he has not the grand length and liberty of frame that I consider necessary to quite win the Derby this season. There are not, how ever, more than two anlrnula that I think will be capable of beating him at Epsom. These I have not seen since last year, and 1 shall re serve to myself the privilege of ranging the son of buccaneer on my side If, on a second Inspec tion of my favorites, I detect any weakness de veloped during the winter that I • cashier may militate against their cflltlency for the great race at Epsom.” On the UUh of this month, the Artemus colt, tho stable companion of the Mineral colt, gained an easv victory In the Derby Trial Handicap, miles, at Newmarket, and as It was admitted upon alt bauds that the Mineral horse could do what, he liked with tho Artemus colt, more attention was directed to tho former for the Derby than ever before, and he became one of the favorites, talked of only second to Pe trarch. About this time his name had been de cided upon, but. bis owners withheld his nomen clature until after winning the race. Klsber bos engagements for the Select Stakes, 1 mile and 17 yards, Newmarket second October meeting; Doncaster St. Legcr, 1 mile tl furlongs and UK yards, and the Grand Prlx dc Purls, 1 mile? furlongs. GRASSHOPPERS. Ominous Reappearance of This Torrlldo Pest In Minnesota. Special Dispatch to The Tribune. Winona, Minn., June 2.—A gentleman just from the grasshopper country furnishes the Ite puMiemi some Interesting facts. Hu visited Marshall, Shetek, Burns, and other points along the western end of the Winona & St. Peter Road. The young grasshoppers have at tained a working size, and have began to har vest the crop. At present their operations are confined to a strip of country extending from Burns Station to Saratoga, near Marshall, and covering a territory of 50 miles In length and reaching In breadth from aline some 8 miles north of the Winona Je St. Peter Railroad south to the 8t- Paul & Sioux City Road. The raven ous hoppers arc just at present about half an Inch long, and will probably get their wings by the middle of Mils month or the tlrst of July. They are making a clean sweep of the wheat-fields, many of which look us mack us when first sown. The grain Is from Bto 4 inches high, and where the pestiferous In sects light upon It not a spear la left. One man with a net attached to a horse-rake caught 40 pounds of hoppers In the short space of three hours. Near Burns Station corn Is hurt ' some by the grasshoppers, but not much. Many of the farmers are planting their whcat-tlelds to corn now. Peas are also being largely planted. Thu experiment was tried in the spring of burn ing over the prairie in liojies of destroying the Inrvic, hut In walking over these burnt places the young hoppers may lie seen moving about os lively as ever. Discouraging as these renew ed scourges would seem to be on the settlers, the general state of that section Is on the whole prosperous. Live stock Is looking particularly well, and the farmers who are raising stock have been successful. Excellent hay can ho se cured in any quantity'at very low prices, and the cost of wintering stock Is, therefore, light. Several good dairies have been started and aro doing well. Immigrants are coming In, par ticularly west of Marshall, and business at (lie various railroad stations presents a very good showing in view of all the cireiniistanees. Wheat receipts continue large. Ail thu elevators and warehouses urc full, ami more is coming. At Rochester on Saturday last thu receipts were 18,000 bushels. _ SUPREME FOLLY. Alleged Disgraceful Conduct of n Demo cratic Kuprunm dmlgo of Indiana. Special Dliputch lo The Tribune. Lapayeiti!, Iml., Juno 3. —Last evening, while a rambling street-preacher was haranguing a mixed audience on a street corner, Judge Pet tit, of the Supreme Pencil, and u candidate for re-election on the Democratic ticket, passing by, stopped and commenced cursing tlie preacher and his theme, religion, and everything pertain ing to it, In a most violent manner. The preach er did notnoUcethoJudgu'svolleyof small-talk, which exasperated the latter exceedingly, and he attempted to cane the preacher, but was pre vented by the bystanders. Some person In formed the proaclier that Ids assailant was a Judge on the Supremo Uench. The preacher Immediately fell upon his knees and ottered a fervent prayer for the abusive and misguided man. The Judge all the time kept up his tirade of abuse and curses. Epithets the vilest of the vile were heaped on the head of the In offensive preacher wlillc he was asking blessings from the Almighty on the Judge. Considering the man and his position, a more disgraceful scene was never witnessed. “ His Honor ** was evidently under the iulluenee of liquor.

NPAUIUiING WINKS. (Jroat Reduction in tlio Prico of the World's Favorite Beverage. M. C. McDonald & Co. Revolutionizing the Wholesale Lliinur Trade. Wo have often heard the question asked, 11 Cannot somcthlnp he done to mluec the price of Imported wlncsf” hut we have never until recently seen any one who has been able to an swer the question nlllrmatlvoly, und proveto everybody's satisfaction that the thing Is practicable. Nearly all Western wine-deal ers—all, we heliove, with one excep tion— procure the standard brands, of wines from the agents of Importers In New York, ami, (n addition to the original cost, Gov ernment duties, freightage, Ac., have to pay the middleman’s commissions, which amount oftentimes to nearly ns much ns the duties. Of course, Western wholesale dealers must make a percentage of protit, and, ns n mat ter of course, thin profit must come out of the retail dealer, and, finally, he paid by the con sumer. Some Western 'wine-merchants claim to Import sumo special brands of champagnes, ami possibly they may, but when they come down to the staple articles which art? its well known in thu wlne-mnrkel ns the various grades of wheat, mid corn arc known on 'Change—these, the standard brands, they procure from (he New York spent. We arc glad to see that one house In Chicago —that of M. C. McDonald ifc Co.—have tukeii a new departure, and Instead of buying second hand. import alt the old, well-known standard brnnas direct from the wlnc-nroduelng countries. Their extensive capital enables t hem to do this, and they are furl tier assisted thereto by their acquaintance with the great wiiiohandlitig houses ami producers abroad. They always buy in very largo quantities, cheaply for cash, and by Importing direct avoid the extortionate cfmrges for extra drayoge, storage, and middle man's commissions, which their competitors must pay. The saving on each case of wide Is a large Item, and the margin Is so great us to eventually crush out all opposition. The result Is already shown by the extensive trade McDonald A Co. have built up during the abort time they have been In business ut No. 170 Clark street. The retail dealers arc sure to find the place where they can buy cheapest. It Is the same in this business ns In any other. The first-class retail bouses of Chicago were not slow to make the discovery that by purchasing of this firm they could make a large saving and replace their stock with all the standard brands. And here we should say that when the very hoot goods can be procured at reasonable figures there is no excuse oud certainly no occasion for retailors to palm of Inferior articles on the public. No one need go to this house and expect to pur chase an Inferior article; they do not keep It. All their wines, brandies, sherry, por ter, Belfast and Dublin ales, etc., are imported by them direct, and arc sold, when so desired, in bond In the original packages. The inroad that McDonald & Co. have made on the trade of the other wholesale dealers In Chicago leaves no room to doubt that It Is only a question of time when this linn will virtually control the sparkling-wine trade of the West. Of course It is a fair field, und open to competi tion, but the firm that sells ns cheaply ns they do must possess very large capital, must ho able to buy as largely for cash, und import direct, and they must have an extensive ac quaintance In the great wine centres abroad. Country merchants also arc beginning to under stand the advantage of dealing with parties who Import direct, although this bouse has not os yet put out many efforts to secure the country trade. McDonald & Co. handle exclusively, also, the celebrated 1). Monarch «fc Bro.’s Daviess County and Kentucky Club sour-mush whiskeys— those popular brands known the world over for their purity and bcalthfulness. The public has been badly swindled in regard to Kentucky sour-mash whiskeys, every third-rate wholesale and retail dealer advertising Ids murderous distillation as the true article. McDonald & Co.’s cellars arc filled with hundreds of barrels of the genuine, and whoever purchases of them may tie sure of gutting tho best whiskeys tho world has ever produced.-—the famous Kentucky Club and Monarch brands,—so decided by the best scien tific and medical authority. They make u spec ialty of supplying families 'and the medical fra ternity, delivering free In all parts of the city in all quantities from u bottle to a barrel.
