ANOTHER WANT OF THE PARTY.
Yesterday we pave our readers a sum
mary of our views upon the nei essity of a
recognized leader for the Illinois Democ
racy. We shall not be clamorously urgent
en behalf of the gentleman named as our
choice for leader. We are ready to yield
cheerful obedience to the will of the major
ity. But we shall continue to present to
the Democracy the advantages to result
from the harmonious uuion of the purty
upon some worthy leader to be brought
forw.inl as a fit candidate for the presiden
tial nomination. Illinois stands fourth in
numerical strength in the electoral college.
In the national convention we will have
forty-two votes, lleretotorc this strength
has been wasted. Hereafter, it can, and
should bo utilized. We are trying to point
the roan to the utilization of this strength
in the next national convention.
Scarcely subordinate to the requirement
of an Illinois candidate Ibr the presidential
nomination is the inportanee ol agreeing
uMin a proper, worthy, and suitable can
didate for governor.
Duriug the past twelve years we have yonc
into the canvass for governor, deeming the
defeat of our candidate a fore gone conclu
sion. The candidate himself has no doubt,
felt like a martyr, without that hope, which
martyrs usually have, of certain, definite or
indefinite, future reward. The Republi
can candidate for governor of Kentucky or
Missouri feels confident of a collectorship
or of a good fat postollice, after his inevit
able defeat. Without a Democratic nation
bl administration, we have no official
patronage with which to soothe our defeat
ed candidates for state offices. The result
has been that our candidates for the various
jKitions under the state government have
usually made a very imperfect canvas of
the state, and the confidence and zeal
which always consort with anticipated sue
c s are wautini;; and the party vote i
never fully pulled. Let us have no more of
this kind of politics "in nurs.''
Who have weto head a tickct.with which
we may make a stalwart light for the suc
cca of the Democracy ami their principles,
The man, who is nominated for governor
of Illinois by the Democracy, must be
fttrong physically and intellectually. He
jiiust be able to bear the heavy strain upoui
both mind and body, which the canvass he
uniHt make will produce, He must have
tin eloquent voice. His mind must be
stored with the facts which bear evidence
of the frauds of the Republican party, of its
want ot sympathy with the people, and of
its bondage to the gold brokers and other
speculators upon the t"il of the laboring
man. And more indeed most of
Jill -he must, by early training, by
education, by habits of thoujht
and by "the manner of his life,''
be in hearty sympathy w ith tho m iss of his
lollow citizens, who are the creators of the
wealth ol tho country, by their daily labor.
He must bo one of the people; so that he
auay know their legitimate wants and take
the load in satisfying these wants, by 1 a -reeling
and guiding legislation, and execut
ing the laws in & way to protect tho weak
and restrain the strong.
We believe Hon. John 11. Oherly more
completely supplies the demand of the hour
tnaa any wan in the state. He will
fill the fu'.l measure of tho requirements of
a Democratic candidate fcr governor. He
is emphatically one of tho people. He
learned the priutcr's trade and came up
from the printer's stick to the editor's pen,
by regular gradations. As he has passed
along in a life of labor, and ot toil, his mind
has been well stored with tho political his
tory of his country as well as with its liter
ature; and although deprived of the early
advantages of a university, or college, edu
cation; there are few men can be found
- abt or west, with more enlarged and cor
rect views of government and its just
and proper functions, and with a more tie
gant diction in which to expuss his
thoughts, than John II. Oberly. It is not
using too strong language to say he is an or
ator in the large sense of that word. If he
had the will, coupled with a Democratic
nomination for governor, he could carry our
banner into every county in the state, with
an earnest eloquence of speech not Usiiai in
latter day political harangues, and come
out of the canvass with a smile on his face
and a handsome majority at his back.
The most important legislation in Illinois
during the past ten years is what is com
monly known as the railroad law of IS7J.
The effective portion of that law is the
handiwork of Mr. Oberly, and it ha. been
made the pattern for railroad legislation in
other states. While a mtmoer ct the leg
islature Mr. Oberly wrote and by his elo
quence gave the impetus which pa.-sed the
operative sections of our railroad law. In
1STT, when the Democratic state senators
ueraanaeu tuai a sounu lH-mocraisnouni oe
placed as a number of the board of rail
road commissioners, Mr. Oberly was nom
inated by the governor, and received the
vote of every Democratic senator in con
nnation of his appointment. He is the
admitted head and front of the railroad
commission: and with marked executive
ability, he has so administered the railroad
law, that the people have been protected
without being compelled to fee
lawyers, and extortion and un
just discrimination are ceasing to be
evils of the railroad system of our state.
Mr. Oberly has demonstrated his ability
as an executive officer. He is a stalwart
Democrat. He has health, youth, vigor,
and eloquence. He has very Urge acquain
tance throughout the state, and ha an
army of friends among the laboring people,
wherever he is known. He would be a
candidate, worthy and well qualified.
THE IRISH QUESTION.
The speeches of the gentlemen, who ud
dressed the mass meeting last Monday
night, were full of useful thoughts, well
and forcibly presented, Lut they did not do
justice to one branch ot the subject, that is
the turpitude of England, so properly
called "perfidious Albion'' by the French.
Evidence is abundant, that England does
not want to aid Ireland. She wants to de
populate Ireland of all true Irishme n.
It is less than three years since there was
a famine in those parts of the BritMi East
India Empire in and around B"in
bay and Madras. The subjects of
this famine were copper colored
heathens, not holding kinship of
blood,or aflinty of religion.or ideat; w ith the
English. They were the very men, or the
kinsmen and friends of the very men, who
murdered the English garrisons during the
Sepoy rebellion of 157. JJut the British
parliament two years ago appropriated tifry
millions of dollars to relieve the sulT.-rers
from the famine in India!
The secret of this abominable conduct
by the British government is that they want
the Irish population to leave their native
land, or else to die of starvation. We are
aware that our indictment against England
is strong, and apparently harsh, but it is
foumbd upon truth. In the Queen's speech
she says that food would be distributed, 'ik
sn it a m r siiou.n bkcomb M-clssauy,"
sin h a step should become necessary,"
while it is known that thousands and hun
dreds of thousands are suffering for bread !
Such cold mdilTercneo from the head of the
government, a portion of whose citizens ure
dying from hunger, deserves the condemna
tion of good men everywhere,
Wk dksikk to be very explicit, and hope
we will be well understood, when we say
Mr. Oberly lias no sort of control of the
editorial or business management of Till".
Bri.t.r.TiN. We have not even his permis
sion to uue his name in connection with the
office of governor, and he has no knowl
edge of our intended advocacy of his fit
ness as a candidate. We only trust we have
not offended him.
As Illinois man has the good or bud
fortune to be appointed Indian ngent to
the l'oneaH. The l'oncas have been cruelly
robbed and otherwise abused of late years,
and we hope, they will now fair better.
Under Hayt's administration of tho Indian
bureau, $250,000, which had been appro
priated by congress, were stolen from his

OBERLY FOR GOVERNOR.
Hon. John H. Oberly is becoming a
prominent candidate, among the Democrats
of the state, for the nomination for gover
nor. We don't know whether Oberly, him
self aspires to the candidacy, or not Bit
we believe, with the Shnwneetown Herald,
that if he should be nominated he can be
elected, lie is just tho man to en:hue
the masses and lead them on to victory.
He is an honest man, a capable man, a
loyal man, a simon-pure Democrat, an I a
man who is known, n spected and trusted
by the people ot the state. There may be
other as good men as he, but there are none
better, and we doubt if any other whose
name has been mentioned, would poll as
strum; a vote as Oberly.
