to) lows :
This week we Announce to the readers
ot tbe Record that henceforth we pro
pose to stand by tho Democratic party,
ocneving it to Do tno party ot progrexa
and reiorro, and that hereafter wo will
devote our time and attention to the in
f.'rests of that party and its nominees,
unless it should materially depirt trom
lis present course. We feel fnink to say
that our tormer preference has been lor
the Independent party, but recent occur
rences seems to show that party lias no
chance for success in this state, ami wo
believe that the Democratic party In now
the only party of progress and llhewl
IdPRi, and henco our lot U hereafter cast
with that party.
I'etkr Cooper, late candidate of the
Greenback party lor presldeut, is out in
an appeal to (be country, in tho course
of which lie fiiys:
There is last forming in this country
an aridlueraej pi wealth tho worst loriu
of aristocracy that can cur?e the prosper
uy ui any cijumry. ror sucn an ansr
ocracy bas no country: "absenteeism."
living abroad while they draw their in
come lrotu the country, is one ot its
common characteristics. Much an arist
ocracy Is without soul and without pat
riotism. Let us tave our
country from UiU, itj most
potent, and as 1 hope, Its hint ene
my. X hero is no section ot our common
country that needs so much the reviving
iniiueuceoi an aounaant and a sound
currency as the South. Tbe Southern
neopie have the finest natural resources
that our country affords ; every facility
ior manuiaciure, tne material labor, and
water power indelinate. They need only
money wisely distributed anions their
enterprising population; and it was
well said, lately, by one of the southern
statesmen that the "p;ovcrnrncnt had Im
poverished, discomfited, aud crushed the
South more by its liuanclal policy since
penco was declared, than by Its arms
durinj: tho whole war of the rebellion."
Xor only in Illinois but nil over the
country the Democratic ojgans are ro
fusing to lend conntenaoeo to tho so-
called "greenback" movement, which,
under the cry ot currency ro
torm, bas been organized to distract tho
counsels ot the Democrats bnd draw
away the party strength. If the move
ment should receive no more encourage
ment from the Republicans than it is
getting from tho Democrats, it will have
a poor chance to elect a presiJent In 1880.
Tbe programme, however, is lor the
Greenback men to nominate good
Kepubllcans for the principal offices, and
r. .1.- ti v,
u iuo iieiniDucan convention to en
aorse tne nominations. We see that il-
lustrated in the nomination of E. N,
uares Dy the Illinois Nationals" for
state treasurer. Bates Is a Republican,
and will be endorsed by tho Republican
convention. This programme will be re
peated In eyer county, and thus the Re
publicans hope to secure a majority in
tne next legislature. Lookout for this
trick, nnd trump it.' .

There Is besides the army of Flnlanj

numbering 128,000 men. In the Orwri'

Cossacks are required to furnish a coo

Russian army numbers, on paper, about
1.000.000, with an annual recruitment ol
about 200.000 mcu.
Greece. Tho army of Greece, by the
law pitted by the Koulo In 1S77, amounts
to 21,070 men. It Is said to bn well dril

are not very noted for their pluck.
Italy. The army of Italy comprises
11)0,007 men on a peace looting, and Ho

Tho Democratic State Convention

iu speaa piainiy in regard to wnat should
be done, and what ought not to be done.
Il there is a Democratic party in this state,
now Is tbe time to show it openly and
distinctively as such. For some vears
past the policy pursued in the State con
ventions has been a shlllv-shallvcomnro.

an attempt at securing success through
the medium ot availability. Instead of
doing tho work as a party of principles

jo rity vote for the nominees In a straight
and sharply defiant contest, all sorts of
hopes have been Indulged In and all
kinds of dicker and truck have been made
witn "lnaependents," "Grangers" and
other Indefinite party factions, with the
expectation that tbe floating vote ami
"balance ot power" could be won over
to the Democratic ranks and victory
bo secured by such miserable
party coalitions. In every Instance the

unknown capital, have the opportunity
of demonstrating just how many votes
