Tonnes and .Mr. Albright were not
proper men to occupy places on a licnio
cralic ticket in a relorni canva-i. These
petitioners, prolcsiug Irieinlship or me
and confidence in my integrity, announced
their intention to be caret ul to teftie to
vote for me if 1 Miould rrluse to accede
the prayer of their petitions. This
threat was a high compliment, ami 1
truat I appreciated it at its full value,
ludecd, I felt very much flattered by the
good opinion of so many good nu n con

good opinion iso intense, that it scorned

cepting a nomination that bad been unnn-tiuou-dy
tendered to me by the iMnoc
racy ot the Fiftieth district to not accept,
because Col. Towncs and Mr. Albright
had been nominated at the sttine lime.
This waj an outburst of political virtue so
refreshing and so altogether peculiar in it
manifestation, that I at once acceded to
tho request ot the petitioners. 1 refused
to go on the ticket of August :id ; and, at
the aatne moment, came to the conclu

ticket,! was not good enough fjrany other
that might be substituted for it. In other
words, I arrived at the determination
that 1 Would not again become a candi

1 could be elected to Ihe house, 1 have no
doubt; but to secure my election
1 Would be coiujelled to devote all my

do. There Is a wider Held in w hich 1 am

Mr. oberly voted lor a bill lor an act
in which was tht1 following M-ciion, i:
That all director of school,

officer, wlio-e .lutv now is, m- m.iv
Ik hereafter, to provide, in their
jurisdictions, schools for the education
of all children between the ages of six
and twenty-one year arc prohibited from

declare that Mr. obcrlv moved him
self to bo a bad I'piiiocrat when be
Voted lor this section of tht! act ot March
24, 1S7I. He says that, although the
constitution and the law declare that all
the children of the stale, white, and black,
shall ltc educate I under a system of com
mon schools, yet school boards, hoards
of education ami other school oilicers.
should bo permitted to exclude colored
children' from tho opportunity to receive
an education as directed bv the constitu
tion. U'cause such children are colored.
This is Heel-and-Wool lMnocracy. It
cries 'Kctbrm,' and would induce the
negro, by wolf-like demonstrations ot
affection, to vote Hid Hemocratie ticket,
but it, at the same time, asserts that the
man who declares that the constitutional
provision In reference to popular educa
tion should be carried out in good taith
Is a Ilaillc.il -that colored children ought
to tic excluded from the opportunity to
obtain an EnglUh education, because
they are colored children, and that the
man who denies this doctrine is no
Democrat. Very well : but. these Heel-and-Wool
Democrats may be assured,
that, in thus clinging to the prejudices of
Ihe past, they hae not tlie sympathy of
the more enlightened Democrats til the
present day. Mr. Albright may awaken,
by his shot-gun anti-mgro appeals, the
prejudices ot the more ignorant among
the Democrats of this st.natoiial
district ; but even Democratic Ignorance,
should In this day of grace, have too
much sense to luten to such ahyaterlng
appeal. When soap was scarce, ami the
d tl negro was the aversion of Logan,
the Albrightaiiti-uegio harangues miht
have had souie e fleet lu low-down quar
ters of degraded disfrli U ol tlie country,
but can it be that, in the oup-t,uppl,.d
and intelligent Fittieth senatorial district
of Illinois, there are Denioera: still so
deep in the slough of race-prejudice as to
listen with applause to this negro-denouncing
demagogue'? If g0, why so?

Mr. Oberly voted for thi-j section ot a

Molt ll Vi
llon. Win. ,f. A lb ti. who ha been
called the xvheel-hoise of Ihe Democracy
of Southern Illinois, la been spnken ot
as a probable candidate for I'niteil States
Senator from Illint.i. in the event ot a
Democratic nod Independent majority In
the next general atinbly. It he could
go into the assembly with the delegation
from this district united in his support. he
would have a very fair chance of electinn.
This tact was not overlooked by . I ud;o
Allen's enemies. They appreciated it,
and made arrangements to tleleat him lu
the beginning of tlie struggle by sending
to the legislature a delegation opposed to
him. Accordingly Col. Townes. tho
xvarm personal friend of Senator l.osran
and the personal and political enemy ol
.tiittge Allen, xva noinln.itud for sena
tor; ami Messrs. Albright and Oberly.
both understood to be anti-Allen nier.,
were nominated for the house. It was a
sharp trick. It cut Judge Allen's sena
torial throat from ear to ear: but it alo
inflicted upon the Dctuocratk party of
till district ii reparable injury, and lias
added one hundred per cent, io S'nator
Logan's chances ol a re-election. Col.
Townes hates Allen; and, a he said in
his speech at the Don Morrison
meeting in tin city, loves Logan
a a father, of roiire he would not
hesitate to vote tor hi father" in the
event hi "father" should be a candidate
for Ihe 1'nitcd state senate aaiiut
Judge Allen, xvho ha been c.-.llcd Ihe
favorite Democratic son of 1'gypt. Of
course not. Ami a tor Mr. Albright he
would vote for ilu-dcvil In-fore he would
vote for Judge Allen. We do not blame
him. The devil is a liett. r friend to him
than Judge Allen. Mr. Oberly Is out of
the raoe : and Mr. Irvin. who xxill
probably no-.v enter the field, will in the
event of hi election, vote forjudge Al
len for Cuit-d States senator, if that gen
tleman should be a candidate
for that ollice. Itui I'oxx uc :md Albright
xvlll take pleasure in knifing" the judge,
il they should I e elected. On the other
hand, if Judge llih iiiau and Di . Agnew
should be elected xxith Mr. Irvin, Jtidire
Allen would have the delegation of bi
oxvn district In hi favor, an 1 would in
all probability lie the successor of S ua
tor Logan in the Senate ol the I'tiiied
States. The friend of Judge: Allen
should govern thcinselve accordingly.
toHrsiniivi: si i.t,i:Mi i).
A correspondent, writing under the
signature of "Joseph." suggest a plan of
compromise to the txvo Democratic
tickets of this senatorial district. It is a
wise tine, similar to the ow suge-ti d by
Mr. Oberly. which was as lolloxxs.-
Let the Tow in s ticket select a Demo
crat known tube its friend without u
"and." an "if" or a "bur," such a man as
Judge (in i-n, Sliei .ll Irvin,
Mr. Mile U. Parker, and then
lei the llilcmau ticket authorize Ihe stale
central committee to select a prominent
Democrat from -.n.e place outside of ihe
district a Democrat of unbiased mind,
who knows nothing of the controversy.
Let these two select a third Democrat
from gome place outside of the district.
also Ignorant of all the facts of ihe two-
conventions embroglio. To this commis
sion let the whole matter be submitted
with authoilty to set aslJ,; either the
lowues or Illieoiau ticket, or both, sub
stituting for them a new ticket.
This was the plan suggested by Mr.
Oberly to his friends and to a promiuent
member of the State central committee.
but nothing hm come of it yet, and we
believe nothing will. Senator Logan,
who lias been "as a father' to Col.
Toxvnes, will not approve of the plan,
and the colonel will not surely offend his
senatorial friend and "just the same as a
father by doing anything that would
injure him or lessen his
chances to be returned to the senate.
And as for Mr. Albright, why he I one
ot the men who never let ko ot a good
thing when once they' get hold of It.
Judge Hileman and Dr. Agnew might
agree to this plan of compromise, but
that they would we do not know.
Compromise would be a good thing,
but in view of the fatherhood of Logan
and the inordinate ambition of Mr. Al
bright, and so forth, it is almost an as
sured fact that cotiipromiiie is out of the
AS 0Uttl05f BKUTIFKII.
Many et our exchanges are publishing
a list of soldiers, prominent in the late
war. who have declared their support ot
the Democratic ticket and are now work
ing for the election of its standard bear
ers, Tllden ami Hendricks. To this list
we wish to add the name of (jen. Aquila
Wiley, of QUlo. icn. Wiley enlisted In
May, lsci ; recruited a company for the
three month's service, and entered the
contest as a lieutenant. He went
through many tierce engagements on
hotly contested ih ld. his services and
bravery being re.-ognied by honorable
promotion, until leading a brigade at
the battle of Lookout Mountain,
he received the wound which forever
disabled him from active service in his
country's cause. He wa compelled to
lay down his sw id ami take up a crutch,
having left a leg umm the battle field
lien. Wiley UI Im-ph a consistent DenW
crat from his uth up and four yeim
ago was the candidate of his party for
srcrctaiy ,, tate in the State of Ohio.
His name .hould be enrolled among the
soldiers who bcia-ve that the salvation of
the country vulU tor the election ot Tllden
and Hendricks. He u working patriot!

mented lout In two xx a) s- by Inking him

Ir ihe Townes-Alhripht leaders believ
I hey can make nnytliltiff by keeping
awake the auti-tiegru prejudices of the
it'iioiant Democrats who follow them,
they are mistaken. The Democratic
party ha accepted the situation. It
recognizes the citieiiship of the colored
num. and xxill protect him in tht exer
cise of all his political right. Mr. Al
bright is opposed to any law, he de
clares, that provides any punishment for
a white mnn xvho assault negro chil
dren on their way to school. He be
lieves that a pood Democrat Is u man
who maintain the right of all men to
mob knowledge-seeking negroes on
sight. He would be one of the n?ot ex
cellent shot-gun orators of the most be
nighted region of Mississippi, if all the
radical say ot the shot-gun men of that

the Republicans exceedingly. They
laughed. Why we cannot tell. We can

lion to Iriiter away our chances of siic
ccss by allow ing the blind ambition of a
few politicians in their exceeding greed
for ollice to throw obstacle in the xvay of
victory. Step should be taken at once
to heal up all dissension in our ranks by
a.compi tunisc ol some; kind. Even yet it
is not too late to do this. The candidate
tin the txvo tickets should lay aside all 111
be ling and arrange some plan for an ad
justment ol the diriiculty. I his might be
done, say in this manner: Let the cnudi
dates ou each ticket select txvo gotxl and
true men. which four shali lu turn select
a filth. The-H five shall then constitute a
board of arbitration before whom the
whole matter shall be laid for a decision.
Surely, none of the present candidates
having the good of their party and coun
try at heart, can, in their cooler mo
ment, deny that this xvocld be a fa an. I
ju-t method of settling the dispute.
il the candidates will, al Ibis critical
time, coineunselllshly forward ami agree
to a compromise it will redound greatly
to their credit and raise them high in the
estimation of the masses of the party.
On the contrary, ihould they, In their In
sane stubbornness, rttuse to ugrce to a
fair adjustment ol the present trouble,
they xvlll ere Jong, have reason to re gret
their action. The ieople have gone into
this great fight of reform, and any am
bitious and designing politician who

to attain his own selfish ends, will cer
tainly be remembered to his damage.
It i not in order at this late day for
Hobby to claim that l is the only reg

Tommy lo lay the iame "flattering
unction to his soul." That is not the
cpieslion before the house. The question,
gentlemen, is this : Shall the Democrats
and liberal relormers ot the 50th senato

easily elect a senator and txvo representa

No good can now come of audi a debate.
It would only serve to open wider the
breach. Compromise is noxv the only
subject to be treated of. Step up, gen
tlemen. Who will bo the llrst candidate
to propose a compromiser itemcmber
that our enemies are lit high glee and
chuckling over our discomfiture. They
heartily wish the breach lu our ranks to
be permanent. Keiueiuber, also, that lu
