the public as to the effect of freight rates
upon grain movement, but result in serious
inconvenience and loss to both the grain
producer and carrier. If the carriers were
to control the elevators all artificial stop

easily forestalled, and the losses incident
to a capricious movement avoided.
THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE FOR
St. Loui Republican.
James Abram Garfield, Republican nom
inee for the presidency, wa9 born iu
Orange, Cuyahoga county, Ohio, Novem
ber 19, 1831, and is consequently m his
forty-ninth year the youngest candidate
for this high office the country has had,
with the single exception of John C.
Breckinridge. After obtaining the ele
ments of a rude education he became a day
laborer, then a boatman and finally a driver
on the Pennsylvania and Ohio canal. Hav
ing thus accumulated a little money he at
tended an academy a short
time, teaching district school in the
winter. In 1853 he entered "Wil
liams college, Massachusetts, where he was
graduated in 1850, and the same year be
came a teacher in the Electric institute at
Hiram, Ohio. In 1857 he was chosen pres
ident of thatinstitutien, which position Le
retained until 1801. Meanwhile he had
begun to mix in politics, as well as study
law, and in 1859 and 18C0 was member of
the state senate; in the latter year was ad
mitted to the bar. In the autumn of 1S61
he was made colonel ot the Forty-second
regiment of Ohio volunters and ordered to
Eastern Kentucky, where he participated
in the battle of Middle Creek, and in Jan
uary, 1 802, was appointed brigadier-gen
eral. He subsequently 6erved at Shiloh,
Corinth and in Alabama and early in 18C3
became chief of staff to Gen. Rosecrans,
with whom he remained np to the battle of
Chickamauga. In October, 1S62, he was
elected to congress from Ohio, and before
taking his seat .was appointed major-general
During his first congressional term he
was on the committee on military affairs
and being' re-elected to the Thirty-ninth
congress, served on the committee of ways
and means, that on the postal railroad to
New York, and as chairman of the com
mittee on a bureau of education; also as
regent to the Smithsonian institution. He
whs a delegate to the Philadelphia "Loyal
ist convention" of 18C0, and to the "Sol-
ier's convention" at rittsburg. Re-elect-

ed to the Fortieth congress, ho served on
his old committees, and also as chairman
of the committee on military affairs. He
has been a member of all tho succeeding
congresses, and recogni7.ed as one of the
most prominent Republicans in the house.
Last January he was elected to the United
States senate for six years; his term of
office beginning March 4, 1881. In 1872.

pride. No movement affecting the pub

nature prompted him on every occasion to
contribute liberally by his personal efforts
and from his means to every jiiovemcnt for
the amelioration of his fellowmen. His
private benefactions were also distributed
with an unstinted hand, and the appeals of

DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVEN
TION. AKHANtSEMENT AND DECORATION OF MVS1C
From the Cincinnati Gazette.
Col. Len. Harris, chairman of the na
tional Democratic committee in charge of
preliminary arrangements for the national
Democratic convention, has awarded the
contract for decorating Music hall, the
Grand hotel and Belmont's headquarters
opposite, to F. T. Foster, the well known
decorator on Vine 6treet. The decorations
and designs in the interior of the hall will
be elaborate and finished with exquisite
taste.. The chorus seats will le en
tirely reserved for the distinguished ladies
who will be present by invitation, hemmed
in by a light trame work guard handsome
ly decorated with flags and tri-colored
bunting. The two doors back of these
seats will be ensconsed in a bower of tri
colors, mottoes and national flags, each
containing a large six-foot shield, gayly
ornamented. The chairman's desk will be
raised on a lovely dais, on the little jutting
platform, from which Theodore Thomas
recently directed his orchestra, so that the
presiding officer will stand fully nine feet
above the delegates, and be able to direct
their movements with ease. Besides the
profuse decorations of the platform and
dias, this centre of attraction will have in
the background a magnificent escutcheon,
eight by fifteen feet in dimen
sions, which above will represent, in oil
colors, a lifelike portrait of Gen. Jackson,
"Old Hickory," from whose illuminated
countenance are reflected the rays of the
sun, with the word "Democracy" in large
letters thrown forward. Immediately be
low the picture are two hands clasped, with
bunches of flags radiating from them.
Light, fleecy clouds, scattered below, finish
the fine effect of the wnole, which will be
oval-shaped and tastily decorated with
evergreens and flags. The whole front of
the immense platform will be covered with
tri-colors and national flags, and that part
of it immediately in front of tbe ladies'
stand will be occupied by members and
officers of tbe national committee, besides
other Democratic celebrities.
An immense American flag, forty feet
long, will sweep from under the roof ovtr
the top gallery with the word "Welcome"
on it in large gold letters. The top of all
the columns will be emblazoned with
flags of different nationalities, and there
will be some tall climbing done by the
decorators next week. The seMs far the
different delegations will be designated by
mounted bannerets of blue satin, fringed
with bullion, and bearing the names of the
several states inscribed with beautiful gold
letters, Two-thirds of the hall will be in
closed by a frame guard, decorated
with tri-colors and flags for the sole
use of the delegates. The
railing will extend over the passages and
doorways so that there will be no possibil
ity of an intrusion on the, part of the
strangers. Delegates will come in and go
out by a special priFsa'c reserved for their
use. In the center of this railing a hand
some blue silk kwner will be mounttu
with bullion fringe, and bearing on it, in
characters of gold, the inscription, "For
Delegates only." There have been no pro
visions made yet for alternatives, but Dan
Clinton, ticket agent at llawley's, will be
in charge of the army of ushers. An im
mense banner will stretch across the grand
headquarters of the national committee, to
Belmont'?, which will be decorated without
regard to expense.
THE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM.
New Orleuis Time.
The platform adopted at Chicago will
no doubt, attract a great deal of attention,
not only because it contains the principles of
the party which has held possession of the
government for twenty years, but, also, be
cause it points out the issues upon which
that party proposes to conduct the cam
paign. While it contains the usual amount
of buncombe about tho misdeeds and
shortcomings of the Democratic party, far
political effect, it asserts doctrines and ad
vances statements which will excite serious
consideration. Since the Republican party
came into power it has been gradually
drifting toward centtalization, but never
before, perhaps, iu any declaration of prin
ciples has it so distiuctly asserted
the supremacy of the central gov
ernment. In the Chicago platform
it is admitted that the states have certain
powers which are denied to the nation, and
that the nation has certain powers which
are denied to the states; but the pith of
tho principles of tho Republican party is
found in the declaration that "the bound
ary between powers delegated and those re
served is to he determined by the nation
aud not by the Btate tribunals." According
to this the states huve no powers which aro
clearly defined and acknowledged. They
have only bucIi powers as are permitted to
them by the nation. The powers which are
reserved to the states to-day may bo taken
from them to-morrow. In other worflw, the
states are nothing; the uation is everything.
It is doubtful if a majority of
tin people are yet prepared to ac
cept this doctrine to its lullest ex
tent. Tliey have n certain amount of
pride in the nation, but they are hardly
ready to spell it with a tlg"N." Another
feature of the platform which deserves no
tice is that which treats of the dangers of
the solid south. 1 he theory ot the Repub
lican party is that the south was made solid
and is kept solid by terrorism, violence
aud fraud. The south must be divided,
says this party, by enforcing a freo expres
sion of opinion at tho ballot-box. It is
useless, and, perhaps, unnecessary to deny
that the solidity of tho south is duo to vio
lence and fraud. There may have been
some violence and fraud in portions of tbo
south, but in what sections of the country
have tbey not been practiced? The north
is almost sold, but is that duo to violence
and fraud? The report of Senator
Wallace's committee, made somo weeks
ago to tho senate, shows
that a large portion of the voters of Rhodo
Island are disfranchised, and that in all of
tho great nauufacturing centres of New
England terrorism of the worst kind is
practiced to prevent a free expression of
opinion rt the ballot box. ' Tho operatives
in the mills are forced to vote in accord
ance wibi the wishes of their employers, or
lose thdr employment. Starvation is as
potent is 6hot guns in preventing a free
expression of' opinion. The Republican
party Sfems to have overlooked this species
of terrorism. It is probable that the over
sight was intentional. If fairness and
justice were aimed nt, however, the terror
ism and fraud practiced at tho north ought
to have received its proper share of condem
nation in the Chicago platform, as one of
the cvi.s to be corrected by a truly great
and goed party which is opposed to all op
Somkbody's Child. Somebody's child
is dying dying with the flush ol hope on
his yovng face and an indescribable yearn
ing to live and take an honored place in the
world beside the companions of his youth.
And somebody's mother is thinking of the
time when that dear face will be hidden
where no ray of hope can brighten it
when her heart and home will be left deso
latebecause there was no cure for con
sumption. Reader, it the child be your
neighbor's, take this comforting word to
the mother's heart before it is too late. Tell
her that consumption is curable, that men
are living to-day, aged, robust men, whom
the physicians pronounced incurable at the
age of' twenty-five, because one lung had
been almost destroyed by the disease. Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is a most
eficicnt alterative for separating the scrofu
lous matter from the blood and" lungs, and
imparting strength to the system. It has
cared hundreds of consumptives.
Brown's Household Panacea is the
most effective pain destroyer in the world.
Will most surely quicken the blood wheth
er taken internally or applied externally,
axel thereby more certainly relieve pain,
wLether chronic or acute, than any other
pam alleviator, and it is warranted double
thestrength of any similar preparation.
It cures pain in the side, back" or bowels,
sore throat, rheumatism, toothache, and all
achts, and is the great reliever of pain,
"Brown's Household Panacea" should be
in ev?ry family. A teaspoonful of the Pan
acea m a tumbler of hot water (sweetened
if preferred), taken at bed time, will break
up a cold. 25 ct6. a bottle.
Mucn Sickness, undoubtedly with chil
dren, attributed to other cuuses, is occasion
ed by worms. Brown's Vermifuge Comfits,
or Worm Lozenges, although effectual in
destroying worms, can do no possible in
jury to the roost delicate child. This val-
uaole combination has been successfully
used by physicians, and found to be abso
lutely sure in eradicating worms, so hurtful
to children. Twtntv-five cents a box.
Woman's Wisdom. "She insists that it
is more importance, that her family shall
be kept in lull health, than that she should
have til the fashionable dresses and styles
of the timts. She therefore sees to it, that
each meniber of her family is supplied
with enough Hop Bitters, at the first ap
pearance of any symptoms of ill health, to
prevent a fit of sickness with its attendant
expense, care and anxiety. Ail women
should exercise their wisdom in this way."

120 BROADWAY 2NTEW YOKK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance .Society,
indicated ly the fact that for Eleven years its average an

As a GUARANTEE of this, and to counteract the perni
