making a speech In his favor a few days

was not the original Union man his

'alone would make a glorious nation"
and "did not feel gloomy" ut such a pros

'BREAD OK BLOOD."
"ISread riots" are immiuent iu some ot
the large cities of the country. In CIn
Innatl, on Wednesday morning two
or three hundred unemployed work
ingmeu gathered in a body and
proceeded in procession to the city
building to demand of. the mayor "bread
or blood." The mayor had been apprised
of their intentions, and had placed a
strong guard ol police uround the build

an hour or two, aud thenjdlspersed with
out violent demonstrations. The mayor
of Jersey City has addressed a communi

city urging that sonic means for the em

Speacaa Mada-Critlolim of tha
SiKixoiitLD, III., July 2". Spring
field was awake and bustling at an early
hour this morning. The stm ts present
ed a scene fully as active as tlmt on the
morning ol the great Republican conven
tion, '1 here was, however, none of ihe
desperate log rolling on the part of eager
candidates which was a disgusting fea
ture of the last named body. The can
didates did not resort to the plan of es
tablishing headquaters with high priced
cigars free to all, but whatever canvass
ing there was was done quietly, aud for
the most part by others than the candi
dates. Nobody seemed excited, but
every one seemed very earnest and in
clined to do that which might seem best
tor the party, regardles of personal pref
erences. The disposition to form a coalition with
the Independents seemed to lie stronger
than it was last flight, but there were
few who were willing to adopt the entire
Independent ticket to reach that end.
The various delegations held meetings at
9 o'clock, and selected members lor the
several convention committees, and inci
dentally discussed the fusion question.
At a few moments after 10 o'clock the
convention was called to order by the
Hon. Win. Brown, chairman ol the state
central committee, who placed in nomi
nation for temporary chairman J. C.
Allen of Crawford. Mr. Allen was
elected, with loud applause.
On taking the chair, Mr. Allen re
turned thanks for the honor con
ferred, uud pledged an impartial
discharge of his duties. These
he said, are trying times. The issue is
being tried whether we will be able to
preserve national integrity uud honor ;
whether we are to transmit unimpaired
to our children the great heritage of re
publican government, or whether we are
like nations of the world, to lose that
heritage through our own corruption.
No observing man can have failed to ob
serve the disgraceful misgovern merit to
which we have been subjected. One of
the latest aud most humilating acts com
mitted by our chief 'executive was the
removal from olllce a man who had been
zealous and successful in punishing men
who had been robbing the people. The
speaker referred iu turn to each of the re
cent acts of Grant, whereby honest pub
lic oIHeers were removed, and spoke iu a
most scathing terms, which won fre
quent applause. This, he said showed
that it wus high time that the honest
people ot all parties should speak out
against the dangers which thus threaten
I the government, which was once our
pride. 1 lie remedy cannot lie iu a
man whose chief merit is
his want of positive qualities. The very
men who lutve assisted Grant in bringing
dishonor upon our nation are the men
who surround Hayes, uud those very
passive qualities will prove far more det
rimental to public interests than a posi-

the character, even though he budishon
est. The country, then must look to the
greatest reformer ot the age, Samuel J.
1 ililen, to ilo that w men is necessary to
its salvation, that which Hayes has not
the ability to do il he desired, and that
which he will have no desire to do while
he has such surroundings. After a few

trict reporting a member for each com
mit teee. The committees were in
structed to retire and prepare their re
ports without delay.
At a quarter past eleven the conven
tion adjourned till one o'clock.
The convention reassembled at half
past one o'clock, in its hall, which is
known as the Miscellaneous Library hall.
The galleries were densely packed with
spectators, but good order prevailed.
On motion of Mr. Kichburg It was re

A SPFKCH BY .VII. OBERI.Y.
The committee on credentials not being
ready to report, Hon. John II. Oberly
ol Cairo responded to calls lor a spec vh.
He stated that it would be manifestly im
proper for him to make airy comments
upon the contest about to Ihj entered
upon, and he would, therefore, confine
himself to the general political issues. He
referred to the 5ih avenue conference in
New Vork, and its platform, and then
proceeded to test the character of each of
ihe two presidential candidates, accord
ing to that standard. The analysis was
so masterly as to elicit such applause as
made it ditllcult for the speaker to pro
ceed. He said that it was
very fairly claimed that Hayes'
character was such as could give no
offence to either bad or good men. This
was probably the reason that when the
nomination was made, a cry went up
from McKce & Co. in jail. The speaker
said he had read how, w hen the wild
bulls in the arena ut Lisbon were at the
greatest heighth of their rage, a single
strain of music was sufficient to soothe
them aud uiake lliein docile in the bunds
of their captors. Call Shurz was the
wild reform bull of Missouri, lie had
charged about blindly and furiously,
bawling retorm, but suddenly the silver
clink of the hard money of which he
spouted so loudly, or some other equally
potent agency had struck his senses, and
lie submissively fell Into the ranks ot
leaders whom lie had gone a long ways
to describe In order mat lie miglit de
nounce. Tremendous applause.
We have had enough, he said, of this
bchurz, ttio mad retorm bull between
campaigns, aud the tractable tool ot the
corruptionists ' during the canvass.

TOMHOYXi; OK CHIC AiO.
Hon. Thomas Hoyne of Chicago next
responded to loud calls, and delivered
what miglit be properly termed a red not
speech. He had not in sixteen years, he
said, 6cen a Democratic convention that
hail as much enthusiasm aud confidence,
or such good grounds on which to base
it as the present. He was confident that
now was the accepted time for the De
mocracy, and that this was the tide
which, taken at the eb'. M ould lead to
success, liis speech abounded in most
palpable hits at the present government
and the Republican purty generally, and
was well suited to the temper or the con
vention, especially that portion in which
he depreciated any running utter tiil.se
Col, J. L. D. Morrison was next loudly
called for, uud he responded cheerfully.
He impressed upon the convention the
importance of Its work, not only iu its
eflects upon the stale, but upon the na
tion. Calm, deliberative, wise counsel
and a sinking of personal prejudices or
(references iu favor of party good, must,
in said, deliver Ihe state from Republi
can misrule, and must do much
to redeem Indiana. He referred to the
action of tho Jeflersoii City convention,
and held that body's action up as well
worthy tho emulation of hisauditors. He
could give no better advice to the conven
tion than that they should go and do like
wise. Theuneasiest head in the nation
he said was that of a little man at Wash
ington, who was anxiously watching the
action of this convention, to note wheth
er it would take advantage ot the oppor
tunity before it, and utilize the possibility
of defeating the Hayes ticket by full
thirty thousand votes, thereby making
certain a glorious victory for the Democ
racy In Novemtier. Tho only way that
this opportunity could lie made of avail
was by giving to the Independents the
rljfht hand of fellowship, and. without
sacrificing or abating one jot or tittlo of
the democratic principles cmuiciuted
In St. Louts, harmonize all the elements
now opposed to the Republican party iu
Illinois. He hoped the convention would
have the good sense to see and act on
this opportunity, as he was satisfied that
an amicable and honorable arrangement
could be arrived at. Cheers. As tho
committee on credential were now
ready to report the colonel closed.
Mr. Marshall, chairman ot tho com
mittee on resolutions, presented a reso
lution ludorsiii'' the St. Louis olatform
and declaring that the presentation of
ine names oi those eminent statesmen,
Sam'l J. Tilden and Thos. A. Hendricks,
lor the suffrages of the American people,
a new and better era is opened up and
opportunity offered ol restoring prosper
ity once more to the oppressed Imsiussa
interests of the laud, and redeeming the
country from the disgrace I robberies
t nd malfeasance that has tended to dis
grace and humble us in the estimation of

aud pledge most active support to the
nominees ol the St. Louis aud Spring,
Mr. Judd aked, before the vote be
taken on the previous question, that the
minority report be heard, saying that it
indorsed the report already made, but
he had an additional resolution to offer,
which would win ten thousand votes tor
the ticket. He was opposed to gag law.
Mr. Marshall said he had been in

previous question, and consequently he

made such a proposition lud'ore, they
would bo willing to give their support to

provided this convention would nomi
nate three or four member of the ticket
nominated by them nt Decatur. He
therefore advised that the convention
take three of the liKlependentcandidutes,
that it nominate the balance of It ticket
according to its own choice, and that it
nominate ami electoral ticket. If this
were done, lie was well satisfied that this
"mongrel'' ticket. If they choose to call
it such, would carry the state by a very
creditable n ajoiliy.
Hon. J. Lee of Peoria, declared himself
as utterly opposed lo any coalition.
(Cheers.) He believed that the pretense

Mas a pretense only, and that thev con
trolled no vote worthy ol note. He sec
onded the nomination ol Wm. Brown.
Mr. Morgan of Gallatin gave numerous

worthy ol being courted.
