Hon. John Meyer will bo returned

of tho best members of tho House
ever elected from Cook.
Tho nnme of Franklin MacVcagh
was ptcsented to tho convention by
A. W. Green in a strong and able
speech, which aroused much enthusi
asm. Ho said that MacVcagh .was
a Democrat because ho Is opposed to
protcctlvo tariff robbery, becauso he
believes In porsotr.il liberty and be
cause he trusts tho people.
Harry Rubcnssccondcd MacVeagh's
nomination, and did It handsomely
and effectively. He said tho Demo
cratic paitywus not now bestowing
rewards, but was looking for a leader.
Ho declared the German-Americans
who helped to carry Illinois for the
Democracy two years ugo wero ask
ing for MacVeagh's nomination.
Colonel Henry V. Donovan elo
quently seconded tho nomina
tion of MacVcagh. He spoke of
Hopkins as u mayor of who all tho
Democrats In Cook County were
proud. Thcro was great cheering at
this nnd sh6uts ot "Why don't you
nominate Hopkins for senator?"
Col. Donovan had to suspend
while dolcgatcs proposed three cheers
for Hopkins. They were given with
n good, hearty will, and Col. Donovan
went on with bis speech. Ho suld
ho spoke for 1.10,000 Democrats In
Cook County who wanted MacVcagh
as Cullom's successor. When Col.
Donovan finished there were calls for
Mayor Hopkins, but he rofused to re
spond. Tho Herald says: The nomination
of Mr. MacVcagh places at the head
of the ticket a gentlcmnn of high
ability and excellent repute, one of
tho best representatives of tho busi
