ILLINOIS DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM.
The following is the platform adopted :
Patriotic duty and mtertst demand peace
, and ' reconciliation through all the land.
," "We pledgo ourselves to the following prin
riples: First No tariff for protection.
Second No third term.
Third A substantial reform ol the civil
service so that federal officers shall be the
servants of the people and not of a party.
Fourth Equal rights to all the states,
and no federal interference with the con-
atitutional functions of states.
Fifth A constitutional currency of gold
and silver, and of paper convertible into
Sixth No more land granta to monopo
lies. Seventh The will of the people must be
supreme and majorities must rule under the
constitutional methods. No more such
frauds as that of 1870 no more 8 to 7.
Eighth That laws shall be enacted to
protect laborers in the more prompt and
certain collection of their wages.
. Both houses of .congress have passed a
resolution to adjourn on the ICth inst.
Mr. Garfield is forty-nine years of age
Grant was forty -six years old when he was
first nominated for the presidency, and
Gen, John C. Breckinridge was younger
f than cither of them.
' Garfield is a lover of . out door sports.
His particular hobby is base ball, and he is
a steady attendent at all first-clous profes
alonal games In reaching distance.
.. Grant m Chicago recently said ot the
" editor ot the Tribune who was jubilant
over Garfield's nomination : ""We happen
to know that Mr, Medill docs not represent
taa' nominee as much, perhaps, as some
.then." . '
While Garfield wm nominating (?) Blicr
man, some one asked Bob Ingcrsoll wbat
he thought of it. , "It's e very Rood speech,
indeed," said Pagan Bob ; "it' two woids
for Garfield and one for Sherman. A very
good speech, indeed." I ;
Secretary 8herman says tho reduction
of the public debt from the month of June
will cot be as large for Juno as for any ot
the previous three months. One reason is
the less amount of internal revenue receipts
and another for the large payments for pen
sions the amount paid out on June 4tb, be
ing the largest ever known in any one day.
The wife of General Garfield, of Ohio,
drew the plan of his now home. She is
small of stature,- with a modesty of look
that is akin to shyness, and has the oppo
site to that manner which would attract at
tention in a crowd. In fact, you would
hardly find her in a crowd at all, but rather
at a fireside. So says the New York Her
ald. The wrctcbeday cowardly bigots who re
fuse to admit Jews to their hotels may read
a lesson in the fact that at the Royal military
academy, Woolwich, one cadet took nearly
one-halt the prizes for mathematics, me
chanics, fortification, artillery, military his
tory, drills and exercises, as well as a spec
ial medal for proficiency and the regulation
sword for good conduct. He writes his
name "M. Nathan."
Notwithstanding the fact that Horatio
Seymour hag repeatedly said that he is not a
candidate for the presidency, and that he
does not want the position, the tide of pop
ular feeling seems to be running towards
him. The delegates from Illinois, while
they are not positively instructed for him,
are directed to do what they can to secure
his nomination. It may be that Mr. Sey
mour will be chosen to be the Democratic
standard bearer against his will. If the
honor is offered him he can be prevailed
upon, perhaps, to accept it as easily as he
was in 18C8.
There is something almost appalling in
the figures given in an official report made
to the" senate showing the
amount of money so far paid as expenses of
the late war. The statement 6hows the
payments of over six thousand millions of
dollars. Add to this the present debt, and
the amount ot interest to be paid before
that debt can be extinguished, and we have
not less than ten thousand millions of
money cost to one side in the great contest.
There has never been and probably never
can be any accurate statement of the cost
of the war to the states in rebellion.
Having fixed upon the 16th as tho day
for adjournment, it may as well be under
stood that- little if any general legislation
will be possible. Those sanguine people
who expect changes in the tariff, in the
manner of counting the electoral vote, etc.,
will be disappointed. Neither will there
be any postponement from the ICth. The
venerable Captain Bassett may, as usual,
turn back the hands of the senate clock for
a few moments on that day, but that will
be all. The appropriation bills can be
readily completed in that time. The dep
uty marshal's bill will pass, and will prob
ably, be vetoed, unless the influence of
General Garfield shall be effectual at the
white house. But is very doubtful whether
that influence will be exerted.
A Reform is TnE Stomach. How to
institute it? that's tho question. How to
get rid of this abominable disorder, that
daily torments the sufferer in a hundred
complex ways, the "very proteusof mala
dies. Listen, friend dyspeptic, your stom
ach needs invigoration. Hostetter s stom
ach Bitters is the best tonic of the age.
Begin that at once,and you will have initiat
ed a process ot cure, wnich, it you cive the
medicine the fair trial it deserves, must in
fallibly result in your recovery. A table
spoonful three times a day of an agreeable,
appetizing and pleasant preparation is sure
ly preferable to tho futilo and unpleasant
remedies bo often taken. Renewed relish
for food, increase of stamina, nerve tran
quility, untroubled rest, these are among
the benefits conferred by this pure, highly
New Orleaua Tinu'i.
The Democrats of Illinois have done ex
ceedingly well in nominating Lyman
Trumbull for the governorship of their
state. Illinois is evidently to be ono of the
pivotal states in November; and if tho
Democrats at Cincinnati emulate their
brethren at Springfield they will stand a
chance to win the , twenty-one electoral
votes winch were given to Hayes in 1870.
The nomination of Lyman Trumbull by a
Democratic convention is a stern reminder
of the vast change in the state of Ameri
can parties within the last fifteen years.
Mr. Trumbull stood in the front rank of
Republicans in the times when John A. Lo
gan was openly advocating secession. Even
those who most emphatically dissent
troia the doctrines of tho Republican
party will admit that from 185-1 when
tho Republicans elected Lyman Trumbull
to the United Stntes senate-r until 1803 it
was animated by higher purposes than tho
mere division of the spoilt of office From
1854 until 18U Mr. Trumbull most ably
and honorably reprosented Illinois in the
aenate of the United States; but, at last,
the blina fury of partisan Imto drove him
into exile, as it did Sulmon P. Chaw,
Charles Summer, George W. Julian and
many others whose name will shine bright
ly in American annals long after the fame
of tho chiefs who recently wrangled at
Chicago shall have mouldered in oblivion.
.TmW Trumbull is now sixtv-seven vears
old; but he is in the prime of his intellect
ual vigor, and he is as fully capable as ever
of quickly recognizing the changing needs
nd conditions of the time.

THE EQUITABLE LIFE
Assurance Society of the United States.
120 BROADWAY NEW YORK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleyen 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.
Asa GUARANTEE of this, and 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.
After the policy has been in force for three years.
" The Equitable Life has paid since its orgzanization to
January 1st, 1880, 51,882,736, and closed its
books upon that date without a contested or past due claim."
The Equitable Life Assurance Society was the first to in
TONTINE SAVINGS FUND POLICY,
And thereby to popularize life ins lira nee to degree before
By the late report of the Insurance Commissioner for the
states of Massachusetts and New York, the Equitable Life
Assurance Society shows the following strong points:
FIRST The Equitable has a larger ratio ol assets to lia
bilities than any of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last year
than any other company.
THIRD The Equitable's death rate was less last year than
any other of the leading companies.
FOURTH The Equitable realizes a higher rate of rent, or
interest, on real estate than any other company.
The Society takes pleasure in referring to the following: well known business
men insured in the society, composing an
