Amono the Souih Carolina delegates to
the Republican convention C. C. Bowen,
thenotoiious swindler and bigamist, and
Wuipper, the bribo-taker, bribe-monger
and bull-dozer, were prominent. These
men are relics of the Chamberlain regime.
Garfield is a candidate of irreproach
able) character. Republican - Organ. If
Credit Mobilier, salary grab, District
of Columbia ring and tho electoral steal
make a man's character irreproachable,
Garfield's character is about us irreproach
able as it could be well made. He's that
kind of a man.
The Indiana Democrats have put out an
emphatic and aggressive platform. The
Republican party is rolled over, pommeled,
lacerated and jammed up in a corner.
There is a self assertion about the document
which is refreshing. That spirit carried
through the campaign will knock the al
leged "saints" into smitliereens.
State Rkoistkh: "Lewis Charles Stark-
el, the Democratic nominee tor auditor of
fittate, was born in Germany in 1838, and
came to thus country in 1850, settling in
Ohio first and for nine years. Thence, . he
catno to Carlyle, this statu, and, , two years
afterward, removed to St. Clair, whoro ho
( hus ever since resided. He graduated at
the ; Cincinnati medical college, and fol
lowed the profwwlon with eminent success.
In 1873, , ho defeated Col. Wanglin for
county, clerk of. St. Clair by 1,000 votes
Ho was ro-elccted in 1877 by a majority of
1,000. He is, and always has boon a Dem-'
ocrat, and is recognized one of the finest
accountants In Southern Illinois.
, Havino pronounces! Mr. Hayes' admin
istration a "clean" one, the Republican ora
tors and organs should explain how it is
that Hayes for a whole year did all he
could to suppress the publication of the
glaring rascalities of Federal officials at
Shanghai, and has protected, to tho best
of his-ability, tho embezzler, George F.
8eward, and saved him from the punish
ment he so richly deserves.
'The Republican drivelers at Chicago
have aroused the Indignation of tho Taciflc
coast people by tho pitiful weakness ot
their plank on the Chinese question. The
utterance promises nothing and offers no
relief whatever to that section, and is con
demned as idiotic by all leading coast pa
pers. The men who got up that Chicago
platform were evidently physical and men
The following from the Rock Island Ar
gus pictures the situation and closes with
some good sound talk. It says: "Never
in the history of the Democratic party has
tho opportunity presented for success been
better than at the present time. 'While the
Republicans are hopelessly quarreling, the
Democrats are serenely confident, are in
good'fighting trim and inspired with a de
sire to do nothing unwiBC, on tho eve of
victory. If the Democratic party is care
ful, and makes no mistake, the next presi
dent will be a Democrat. There is an
abundance of good material, men
who are known to the people, and
who would make acceptable candidates,
and it is sincerely to be hoped that
the Cincinnati convention will select the
best man in the party, and not allow per
sonal ambition to guide them in the choice.
What the Democrats need is compact or
ganization. This is being effected rapidly,
and before the campaign is fairly opened,
there will be a Democratic club in every
voting precinct in the country. The effect
of such organization cannot be lightly es
timated. With good organization, the vote
is always brought out, and a greater degree
of harmony and confidence prevails. If
the Cincinnati convention make9 no mis
take, and the Democrats are organized,
success is as certain as anything can be.
Let us not be over-confident because of the
dissensions in the ranks of our Republican
opponents, but work together harmoniously
and unitedly for success."
TRUMBULL AND PARSONS.
The Democratic state ticket, nominated
yesterday in this city, and headed by lion.
Lyman Trumbull, for governor, and Gen.
Lewis U. Larsons, lor lieutenant governor
ot Illinois, will awaken Democratic en
thusiasm in every county of the common
wealth. The nomination of tho ticket was
effected by acclamation, and amid demon
strations of applause that have never been
surpassed in Democratic conventions in the
state. Yesterday morning, prior to the as
sembling of the convention itself, tho very
air was pregnant with tho purpose of nine
tenths of the delegates. The purpose was
manifest, to place Trumbull and Parsons in
front to lead tho Illinois Democracy in tho
approaching struggle The fitness ot these
leaders seemed to bo universally recognized ;
and, when the convention got to work,
there was apparent an eagerness to put the
favorites in tho field.
When it was announced that nomina
tions tor state offices were in order, there
was aSush to brine- tho winninc names to
the attention of tho convention. Lyman
Trumbull was promptly suggested, and the
mention of his name aroused uealcning
cheers. The convention the largest in
Illinois for thirty years arose to its feet to
greet the nomination. Mr. Trumbull arose
to still the tempest ot cnthusiosm, asking
that his own name be withdrawn; and
then, in terms of characteristic eloquence,
he proceeded to nominate tho patriot ami
hero, Lewis B. Parsons, for governor. Tho
convention listened with defferential praise
to Mr. Trumbull, but virtual. y said, "that's
all right judge, but we want you to lead
us." The nomination of Trumbull stood
firm and fast, and Gen. Parsons, in the
spirit of genuine manliness, and with elo
quence that surprised and gratified the con
vention, stepped forward and, himself,
abunuoned his owu aspirations, calling tor
tho nomination of Tiurabull, which was
effected amid a tempebt of acclaims.
Thereupon followed, with scarcely less
lervor, tho nomination of Gen. Parsons tor
lieutenant-governor. Tho scene, thus crown
ed with Democratic enthusiasm, has inndo
an ineffaceablo record in the politics of Ill
inois. Not only do wo endorse tho ticket, but
believe that it will be endorsed by tho
masses of Illinois. Mr. Trumbull has done
irrent service to the state. Ho is entitled
to tho confidence, tho respect, tho admira
tion of all Illinois. His great name has
added luster to tho commonwealth, and, in
his whole career, there is no stain nor
blunder. In the nomination of Trumbull
aud Partous, tho Democracy of tho state
have the Bign by which they will conquer.
They combine the highest statesmanship
with the soldier's purest devotion. They
can bo trusted. They can bo implicitly
followed, and they will load in paths of
safety and success. Let tho Illinois Dem
ocracy rejoice in Trumtmll and Parsons,
and "shoulder arms" for victory in Novem
ber. TAYLOR'S HEIRS.

amendment to tho general deficiency bill to

Taylor, the baiancQ 01 0,uuu, alter de
ducting what hod been paid him or his lc
rral representatives since his death, on ac
count of his salary as president ot tho Uni
ted States tor the year irom March 4, isau,
to March 4, 1851. It will be remembered,
as Mr. Tucker stated, that General Taylor
died on tho Oth of July, 1830. At tho
time of his death there was a precedent
for paying salaries of deceased presi
dents to their heirs. It had been dono in
the case of President Harrison, and after
ward was done in the case ot rresiuent
Lincoln. When President Taylor died, his
family, who were thou wealthy, declined to
permit a bill to bd introduced to pay to the
family tho remainder of tho year's salary.
Ono of the beneficiaries is the widow of
Col. Bliss, who followed General Taylor in
the Mexican war. Tho grand-daughter
mentioued is tho daughter of Surgcon-Gen-prdl
Wood. No anrjionriation is asked in
the amendment, as will be seen, for any
male member ot the lamny, but oniy to
those ladies, who need it, although they did
not need it at the time of the death of the
father and grand-father. The male heirs
have renounced in tavor ot tnese laaies.
General Richard Taylor, before he died,
declined to havo any rart of the money.
The amendment gives these ladies over
$16,000. ; Tho amendment passed without

trading, was very snarp as a cattie aeaier,
and one time he got a lesson that lasted bim
for life. A farmer had a herd ot cattle and
Jay went to look at it. In the midst of the
bartering a woman appeared who had a
talk with the old farmer, and Jay catching
a word now and then, heard her im
ploring him not to sell her cow. "I shall
die if you do," she replied. "What's the
matter with that woman?" asked Gould,
in his usual cool, way. "Oh, nothing;
6he's afraid I going to so sell her favorite
cow, old Pailful." Gould thought he had
found a prize, and demanded that the cow
be Drought out, and insisted when he saw
hef-that she must go with the lot. The
cattle were driven home, and Jay's father
sent him to see what kind of a milker old
Pailful was, Jay had hardly seated himself
before the cow kicked him, pail and stool
sky high, tore around the pasture, leaped
the fence and started for home. Jay never
bought snythinglrom that day to this that
a woman wanted to keep.
RUMORS OF CORRUPTION.
There were, of course, rumors of corrup
tion afloat at the hotels. At the Palmer a
reporter was informed by a member of the
Rhode Island delegation that Potter Pal
mer had, ia the morning, sent round word
to the Grant delegations that they need not
trouble themselves about their bills, as
they wero already paid. "But," said the
gentleman referred to, "they need not
think that they are going to freeze us out
that way, as our living here doesn't cost us
a cent, and we can stand it as long as they."
One Grant man fixed the sum of the
Blaine corruption fund at $150,000. A
Grant man who hails from Ohio informed
the reporter that a $100 check, signed by
John Sherman, and made payable to one
of his delegates, had been lost by the
holder, and had come into the hands ot the
Grant men, and had been photographed for
distribution if found necessary.

120 BRO.ADWAY NEW'YOKK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated ty the fact that fer Eleven years its average an
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, and its
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
As a GUARANTEE of this, aud to counteract the perni
cious influence of a technical policy, adhered to by many
companies, the Equitable makes ALL ITS POLICIES, old and
new, throughout the United States.
