Stkinokield, Ille., April 2. 'i'ho farm-
ert convfntlun of this slut nut at tho
court houso Imre at 10 o'clock thii morn-
ng. Nearly all tho counties in tho
northern arid central part of the state,
nnd rnntiv of the southern part aro rep
resented. Hon. Win. Smith, ux-speaker
f tho Illinois huusu of representatives,
was elected temporary president. He said
the object of thu convention, as ho under
stood it, was to give to the representatives
tho people. now assembled
tbo legislature such an
expression of tho view of tbc farmer of
the stato as they cannot full to understand.
Various business committees wore ap
ppointcd, and wile they wero preparing
their reports, several speeches woro made.
D. w. Dame, a prominent farmer of Car
roll county, and ox-member of tho execu
tive committee, of tho stato organization
f farmers, addressed the convention, de
tailing sorno of tho grievances of farmers,
and alleged Impositions practiced upon
them, not only by railroads,
but by other corporation and
monopolies, and urging the ribility of
farmers to relievo themselves by concerted
united action, reforring to a rtatcmont
which had betn mado, that the farmer'
movement had an undorlaying political
object, ho declared that if that wa so,
tboro was an excellont precedent for tho
laying aside. of minor political
issuer, when a great principle
affecting the welfaro of tho entire people.
wa at sUko. Ue bolievcd that tbo peo
ple who were sufToring from tho apprc-
sicn of monopolies would nut permit the
cry of politic to sworvo them from their
purpose. Menibbra of tho leglslaturo
should tako tho responsibility of passing
tho legltlatlon necessary In behalf of far
mers upon their own shoulders, And not
throw it upon tho farmers or on this con
vention. At 12 o'clock a recess was taken
till two p.m., when tho convention real-
ecmblcs in the stato bouse, tho court room
having been found to small.
The convention reassembled at 2 p.m.
in tho hall of tho bouse of tho reproionU-
tivc, tho liouso having adjourned till to
morrow, to allow tho convention tho use
of tho hall. Tho body of tbo hall was
completely Sited with delegates, whilo tho
galleries woro crowded with specta
tors, including many members
of the legislature, who appeared
to take great Intorcst In tho proceedings.
Tho committee on credentials reported
that 73 of 102 counties of the state were
represented by 291 delegates. The com
mittee on permanent organization re
ported for president, D. W. Davis; for
vlco president! from the state
at large. W. C. Flaci: and
Enos Smith, with an additional vlco prcsl
dents from each congressional district
Tho roport of tbo commlttoo on resolution
wa called for, but not being roady, Gov.
Bovcredgo wa invited to nddrdi the con
vention, which ho proccoded to do. He
referred to tho various interests In exis
tence in tho etftto, and which combined
mado up its prosperity, all of tbeir Inter
est demanded nnd should havo tho nour
ishing caro of tlie-etate, and no ono crip
pled or oppressed for tho benefit of tho
other. Ho rocognlzed tho im
'portance to tho itato of farming
Interests, tbo grcit,1r indeod of nil; but
railroad interests should not bo crippled;
the interest of furniorn and railroads
wero really closoly idoutiUod, nnd one
could not flourish without tho other. Ue,
however, recognized tho fct that rail
roads bad been, and were now exacting
from tho farmer iiu extortionato prico in
froights, thus crippling tbo best intorcst)
of tho country, and there must bo a rem
cdy for theso rates; but ho cau
tloncd tho people not to mako war
upon railroads to abolish them; but
(imply to put them under tho proper con
trol of tho people, through their ropre
tentative. Applause- and cries ol "that'
all wo want, that's it, wo want more
rouds," Tho governor thon proceeded to
tho consideration of tbo proper remedy to
bo applied, and in tnis connection took oc.
caston to soy that ho boliovod tho lo lsla
turo now in sossion had given their best
efforts to a ialutlon of thl quostion ; ho
believed- thoy woro honoitly trying to
servo the pooplo in thl muttor, but it wa
a dltucult to manage; referring to the do
clilon of tho court, that the chnrtor of
railroads wero not contracts betweon
tho poople and the corporation. Ho ar
guod against the correctness of thu prop
osltlon, nnd expressed bis boliof that theso
charter wero imply grant of powor to
tbo corporator to build the ro.iil, nnd
courts decide that tho legislature had the
right, thon thu railroads must submit; if
thoy decided against it, tho people must
elthor settle down to thing as ttioyare
now; Cries; "no, wo v on'f, no, never;"
or, continued tho governor, obtain an
amendment to the constitution of tho Uni
ted Statel, which will secure the de
sired object. This was an undoubted
right f tho people which had often
been exercised, and could bo Bgaln In
conclusion to faithfully, without foar, fa
vor un affection and go forward In the
diicliurgo of all duty, and leave the results
to thu considerate Judgement or tuo
people of the state. Kx-Govercnor Pal
mer then appeared by Invitation, and
made a short speech, lie considered tha
fact that tho farmers had t omo together in
such numbers to seek a remedy from evils
that oppressed them.

THE lLIJ-ATEK BTKAMSUir, ATLANTIC
New Yobk, April 2. People- who had
friends on board the ill-fated Steamer At
lantie, crowded the offlco of tho White
Star lino this morning, hoping to learn
the names of survivors, but a no li.t had
been received information could not be
given tnem, xue ivrrime unuier is uo
only .topic of conversation and a full inves
tigation it demanded by the public,
and the people desiro that the re
sponsibility of tho disaster bo fixed on
the proper parties. The White Star com
pany last evening, on receiving nows of
the disaster,dispalched an agent to relieve
tho turf Ivors, and requosled him to tele
graph their names to important points
Two other agents left for Halifax thl
morning to forward tho survivor to their
destination. Tho steamship City of Mon
treal, which sailed the same day as tha
Atlantic, March 29, has duplicate lists of
tho pntiongers in tho cabin and steerago.
Sho is expected to-day. Tbo
company lays tho catastrophe
was caused by mistaking tho lights on tho
coast, and do not attach any blame to tho
officers of tbo vessel. Captain Williams
was an experienced nnd exellent seaman.
He was about twelve years In tho trani
Atlantic trado, And with tho White Star
lino sinco its organization. At ono
timo ho commanded the steamship
Colorado, which after ha retired from her
was sunk by a. collision. Tho company
havo not received auy intelligence of tbo
number of passengers lost. Thoso res
cued aro enrouto to Halifax, but as the
Journey will have to bo accomplished in
wagons, they are not oxpectod to arrivo
thcro boforo Ave o'clock this ovoning. Tho
captain' ttatcment, and whatever par
ticular can be obtained will bo at on:o
sent to tho companies ofllco In thla city.
