Thk meeting of the Xutiouul-Greenbuck-Labor
Reformed Reformers, held at the
ronrtrhouse last night, was well attended,
and the speech of Mr. J. B. Stelle, of Mur
physboro, was one of the most effective pub
lic addresses we have had the pleasure of
listening to for a long time. Of course Mr.
Stelle made not a few misstatements of
facts and drew false inferences from estab
lished truths; but that he is an effective
public speaker no one who listens to him
can deny.
Mk. T. T. Uouinson, the gentleman asso
ciated with Mr. Halliday on the Legislative
ticket, lives in Jackson county and is by oc
cupation a farmer. Although comparative
ly unknown in this county, the fact that he
was the choice of the Jackson delegation is
of itself sufficient recommendation as to his
fitness fur the jwisition. Those who enjoy a
personal acquaintance with the gentleman
represent him as a young man of energy
and intelligence and a close student of the
wants of the people. His personal charac
ter is beyond reproach. The " convention
lionored itself in giving to the Democracy
of this gonatnrial district Messrs. Itobinson
and Halliday us its representatives in the
lower house of next General Assembly.
Tan Greenback Nationals have an oth
bound organization into which they arc in
ducing voters to enter. Voters should
lieware of the men who thus sek to induce
them to become the subservient tools of de
signing men, who, while pretending to be
the friends of the people, are seeking nothing
but their own aggrandizement. Wc say
this in a patriotic whv, because the Demo
crats of this part of the state will be greatly
benefitted by the National movement. It
will injure the H"pulilicans much more
than the Democrats, but it would be wise in
the Republicans who an-disgusted with Re
publicanism to come into the Democratic
party at once. They can gain nothing
wasting time l.y tarrying ut tK, ,mt.()f.tlc.
way house of the Nationals. The almost
persuaded Republicans lmld not stand
upon the order of their coining over to the
Democracy, but come at once. The dark
lanternism of the National party will not
please them.
From official information in possession of

At the Jom-slioro convention yesterday
the following resolution was adopted:
Wiiihxa, Th i-mlilltimeut of a deep water
channel at the tnoiitb of the MixslHilipl river, by
mean of tho Kudu' Jolly evtein, I uov an admit
ted urce, and a deep water outlet lia been per.
inaneiitljf aeciired to tho ctmimerco of the. Ureal
Yalltfjr of tho VlHslfMiinl, therefore,
Ilexulved, A tho ctit- of thl convention, that
liberal appropriations, comment. untie with t lie nine.
nltiido of tho end In view atid with the value and
importance of the remit to be achieved, should be
made hy tho nan mal tmiinvit for the speedy Im
provement of tho navigation of tho Misiclppl and
Ohio river, and their Iributnrio, throughout their
entire lentil.
It is proper that the people of this dis
trict should express themselves on this
subject through their conventions. It is a
measure of the greatest importance not only
to ourselves but to all that vast region of
country embraced in the Mississippi and
Missouri valleys, and we hope the example
set at JonesUiro yesterday will be followed
at all political meetings of the people
held in the country interested in it. The
friendsof the improvement of the Missis
sippi river could render no greater service
in its aid than to keep up a constant
agitation of it, ttud see to it that their repre
sentatives in Congress tire sound on this
point.
The Democrats will soon occupy common
ground on the financial question in every
State of the Union. In Texas lately a Dem
ocratic state convention declared for one
currency for the government and the people,
laborer and officer, pensioner and soldier,
producer and bondholder; that all bonds
and obligations of the national government
ought to be paid in legal tender notes of the
United States, except where it is otherwise
provided by the original law under which
they were issued; and all that can be called
in and paid now should Imj paid at once and
the remainder as soon us it can be lawfully
done. In Colorado a Democratic State con
vention demanded the free and unlimited
coinage of sil ver, and the repeal of the Re
sumption act and a substitution of United
States legal tender paper for national bank
notes and its permanent re-establishment as
the sole paper money of the country, to be
made receivable for all dues to the govern
ment, the amount of such issues to be reg
ulated by law. Th Democrats who are in
cline to run off after the Nationals, should
ljefitre1 they start ascertain the position of
their own party on the money question.
Thk nomination of .Mr. Thos. W. Halli-
lay by the Legislative convention at Jones-
lioro yesterday is the best that could have
been made fur us and is in every way accept
able to our people. Mr. II. has many of
the qualities which give to members of the
general assembly success as legislators and
which prove of great service to their con
stitutents. While not an orator in the
common acceptation of that much ulmscd
word, he has the gift of imparting to others
what he knows himself in an earnest, clear
and intelligible way; and although a young
man he has, through his own efforts,
achieved success in business, and the ex
perience derived from such a training
gives a practical turn to all his views
upon public questions. Of late years
his connection with county and municipal
matters has given hint an extended knowl
edge of the workings of our State laws,
anil he has more particularly familiarized
himself with those bearing upon the reve
nues, theircollection and expenditure. His
administration of the affairs of the county
has been marked w ith prudence and econo
my, and nil his efforts have been directed
toward lightening the burdens of taxation.
The same can truthfully be said of his
course in the city council. To the legisla
ture he will carry the practical experience
he has thus earned, and we predict for him
there a career of usefulness to his constitu
ents and of honor to himself. His elec
tion is assured,
Tuk nomination of Judge W. J. Allen for
Congress by the Democracy of this district,
in convention assembled, at Jonesboro yes
terday, is tin event which has been con
sidered almost certain from the time he
entered the field to contest for the honor up
toils consummation. His conceded abilities,
his experience in public life and his famili
arity with the wants of this di-trict
peculiarly fit him as its representative.
Resides, on the lloor of the national house
of representatives, Judge Allen will be
more than a provincial delegate. His
large acquaintance with public men and
measures and with the routine of national
legislation - give him an advantuge over
men less favored in this respect an ad
vantage that will redound no less to the
material interests of his constituents than to
his own fame. Iu one important respect
the Dtmocrutsare fortunate in having JOdge
Allen for their standard bearer. This dis
trict is close and will bo warmly contested,
There is a growing disposition among inde
pendent thinkers who have heretofore affi
liated with tho Republican party to cut
loose from that organization. To that class
Judge Allen will bo ablo to appeal success
fully for their suffrages. Ho understands
fully the nature of the evils which oppress
the country like a nightmare, and he has the
capacity to point out their remedy,
and to give u clear exposition of
the doctrines niul principles which
govern the action of his party. His largo
personal following throughout this district,
his extensive personal acquaintance, the
suavity and grace of his manner, aliko to
all classes in all stations of life, will give to
his side of the campaign enthusiasm and
devoted, untiring workers. He will,
as all Democrats who hope fur success
next November should, welcome the intro
duction of the "bloody-shirt" element into
the canvass. Nothing will so quickly
impress tho minds of reflecting men with
the poverty of Republican campaign mate
rial us these echoes from n time th.it is
dead and gone. To revive sectional hatred ;
to plant discord lietwoen men of common
lineage; to urray races one against tho
other; to subvert tho principles
underlying society and to inevitably
bring ttlniut the destriction of
our institutions nre some of the fruits
that would follow the success of the
" bloody shirt" doctrine. The country tired
of this some time ago. It wiuts no more
of it. It looks to its public lrgislntors to
address themselves to the material welfare
of the country to measures of peace, con
cord and prosperity. No man more fully
realizes the restlessness and sensitiveness of
the people upon public affairs just at this
juncture than Judge Allen, and 'n the cam
paign which has just begun he will show
himself equal to every call made upon him.
With our candidate, with a thorough system
of organization and with unity of action,
our succss is placed beyond all doubt.

ami the chair nppoiuted the committee up
on the suggestion of the respective delega
tions.
At this point Mr. Hugh Andrews, of
Union, raised the question of the regularity
of the organization of the convention, and
denounced it as sharp practice and an injus
tice to Union county. In this discussion
Messrs. Johnson, Green and others patici
pated. Finally Mr. Andrews moved that
the organization be considered only a tem
porary organization. On a call of the coun
ties the vote on this question resulted us
follows:
Notts Alexander, Pulaski, Massac, Pope,
Johnson, Williamson, Randolph, Perry 8.
Ayes Union 1.
Mr. L. A.Goddanl, of Williamson county,

votes.
Noes Alexander, Jackson, Massac, Per-
rv, Pope, Williamson M7 votes.
Before the vote was taken Mr. Solomon
declined tlie nomination, but Mr, Audrcws
insisted upon tho vote. All the speakers
against the suggestion of Mr. Andrews, do
dared their confidence in Mr. Solomon, and

it would be improper action in the conven
tii ii to select a chairman of the central
committee.

length and much ability, in which he dis
cussed the questions of the day. The con
vention received the speech with loud up
plause, Mr. Hartzell was then called, and he re

The committee on resolutions reported ns
follows:
Resolved, That, this convention hereby en
dorses and adopts tho platform of princi
ples declared and published by tho last
Democratic State Convention, and upon
some of the most imisirtant and vital
political questions now before tho people
this convention declares the sentiments of
the Democracy of the 18th Congressional
District us follows:
We, tho Democracy of tho 18th congres
sional district of Illinois, charge that tho
depression of the buslueiw interests of the
country, tho enforce idleness of hundreds of
our workinginon, and the consequent in
crease of suffering and crime, is tho direct
result ot the linunciul legislation inuugur
ted ami carried out by Republican conirres
ses working in tho interest of bondholders
ami speculating capitalists; und wo esnec
ially denounce tho act of the Republican
congress of 18tl! dcclarim: the United
States bonds, purchased by United States
currency, rcneeinaiiio in coin, the contrac
tion ot tho greenback circulation, and all
tho acts discriminating nt'iunst and denre
ciating tho value of tho money of the poo-
pic, us ucts intamoiis in their origin, crim
inal in their design, and disastrous to the
industry and commerce ot our country.
We therefore demand, in the interest of
the people, that the United States bonds
shall be declared redeemable in United
States treasury notes, the same kind of money
by which they were purchased of the gov
eminent, ami that they bo made taxable;
that the National Bank notes be withdrawn
from circulation and Greenbacks issued
therefor; that the volume of the currency bo
increased to such an amount as to satisfy all
tho demands of tho business of the countiy,
industrial and commercial, and that the same
be made payable und receivable for ull debts,
dues und demands, public ami private.
Resolved, That tho vast majority of the
people aro laboring men, who produce the
weultlt ot tlie country: while tho legislation
inaugurated by the Republican party has
been in favor the bondholder and the
moneyed power; und we now demand that
in future of the legislation of tho country
shall be in favor of tho laboritiL' masses, ami
not of those who are controlling capital to
mo injury ami oppression ot laixir.
Tho convention then adjourned with
much enthusiasm for tho ticket.
