our manager have agreed among them
selves, that the Democrats of Illinois
should, in view ot the approaching Presi
dential election, not declare their politi

their fellow-Democrats of the L'nlon, de
clare by silence that they have no politi

promises to go Into debt who have
actually madu us bankrupt by repmli,
ating a contract mauo Willi us
ought to demand of the people of Illinois
that they assutno thu?e debt. They will
not, we arc confident, refuse to do so
DurlTig the tlmu thu law wa.- in foice
before tho supreme court took out ot it
Ihc kernel many attempts wcru madu to
repeal It. lhu.o attempts wcru always
defeated by a large majoiity. Tills tact
is proof that a majority of the people ol
tho Statu aro atixlou that thu Statu shall
make gootl thu promise that was madu to
tliu counties, townships, cities nud towns
by thu act of lsiiii, and what thu majority
ol tho people wlh to have donu they may
liavetlone. Anil In this fact wu see rea
son to bellcvo wu may obtain relief from
thu unjust burden of our railioail taxes.
The General Assembly may, we believe,
take up thesu local debts and put them
Into State bonds, am thiaitslioultl do. Its
promise Induced communities to go Into
debt, ami It is in iiouor boutid to taku these
debts oil' the communities with which
it has been prevented fioni dealing lalily
- from standing by its contract. Tho
courts, wu leaf, can ivo to us no relict ;
the (iencral Assembly can, and will 11
we send up lo It men who know what
ought to be done, know how to do It anil
will tlo it.
