ILLINOIS DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM.
The following is the platform adopted :
I'utriotic duty and interiBt demand peace
jftnd reconciliation through all the land.
Wo pledge ourselves to the following prin-
First No tariff for protection.
Second No third term.
Third A substantial reform ot the civil
crvice 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
stitutional functions of states.
Fifth A constitutional currency of (fold
' aud silver, and of paper convertible into
coin. . . . ,
Sixth No more land grouts to monopo
' 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.
The Chicago Tribuuo comments in the
following terms upon the probable dis
missal of Geo. Raum from tlio ofllcc of
commissioner of internal revenue:
' V ' The dismissal of Raum, commissioner of
internal revenue, from1 office, would be rec
ognlred in this state as an instance ot po
' , ctie retribution. Raum is simply ami
y .solely an officeholder and oflkescekcr. He
went into the third' term "boom" becauso
' ' hoWieved that iu that direction lav his
. .best chance of holding the office he had, or
getting t butter one. The defeat of the
"boom" should carry with it tho dcteat of
. 2Uam 8incehe has chosen to stake his
I iortunes on the hazard of tho die, let him
cTertha consequences. Raum's case is
:, erbaps the most flagrant ever known in
the civil service. Vx loft his post of duty
at Washington to presido at a political con
vention. Ho Influenced his subordinates
to follow him to Springfield. Nearly every
internal revenue collector in Illinois
obeyed him. As chairman at Spring'
field he was a partisan. As mem
bcr of the committee on credentials at
Chicago ho was even worse. Ho deliber
atcly misstated facts and distorted the
truth. He was tho most servile and obse
quious instrument) of tho syndicate in I Hi
nois, and at the same time the most timid
and fearful. It was Raum who, as chair
man of .the Springfield convention, an
nounccd Logan's packed committees "ap
pointed by the chair." It was Raum
again who, from the chair, made a false
statement of the precedents of Illinois con
ventions at tho request of Logan the in
quiry and reply being evidently prccon
ccrtcd. It was Raum who, in the same
truckling spirit, sent to the Cook county
delegation at Springfield a special request
for a complimentary resolution, and, being
refused, obtained it from a delegate from
St. Clair county. Raum was in the con
spiracy, and as a federal official, using his
office for factional ends, one of the most
guilty members. He induced, if Dot re
quired, other officials to violate decency
and justice. It is sincerely to le hoped
that the report of the intention of the presi
dent to remove Raum will speedily prove
to be true.
THE WORK OF CONGRESS DURING THE CON
VENTION NO RETURN OF ABSENTEES

From oar regular correspondent.
Washington, D. C, June 12, 18S0.
In spite of the universal interest center
ing at Chicago, the scat of government has
remained at Washington, aud the proceed
ings at the national capitol have not been
destitute of importance. The house has
made another offer to adjourn, but the date
is still too early. It passed on Thursday
tho general deficiency appropriation
bill, after a characteristic wrangling with
the silver problem. Some recognition had
to be made of Secretary Sherman's request
lor more storage, and the bill appropriated
130,000 for that purpose. Mr. Bland
wanted all the amounts appropriated in the
act and the full amouut of congressmen's
salaries paid in silver, and was willing to
allow $10,000 for the storage of so much
as might be returned into the treasury in
exchange for silver certificates. Mr. Towns-
hend wanted all federal salaries paid in
silver; Mr. Warner, all "government ex
penses and obligations" paid in gold or sil
ver coin witiiout discrimination or favor,
but without waiving the "right of option"
of course to pay in the baser metal. In
the end tho original proposition was adopt
ed, and (20,000 more were sacrificed to the
Ohio idea." The bill also contains a
provision that no part of the appropriation
for marshals and their deputies shall be
used in payment of services rendered at
any election. On Saturday the house
passed the scnato bill authorizing
a joint committee to consider the question
of increasing the accommodations of the
library of congress within the capitol, or of
selecting a 6itc for it outside, and on Mon
day, another tardy and perilously urgent
measure the senate bill confirming the
Utc agreement, but with amendments of an
The senate's achievements have been the
passage of tho river and hurbor appropria
tion bill, and Mr. Eaton's tariff commission
bill. There was an unpartisan, yet firm
majority for keeping this commission out of
politics by excluding congressmen from it;
but they were unable to prevent an amend
ment ordering a final report in January
The excitement that prevailed during the
Chicago convention has entirely subsided,
and tho overstrained political workers have
relapsed into apathy. Senators Conkling,
Logan, Cameron and Hoar have not return
ed to their scats in the chamber. Senator
Edmunds h?s paired and left the city lor

much depleted nnd the lobby alone, of tho

A STRONG TICKET.
What ticket? The ticket nominated by
the Democratic convention at Springfield
on the 10th of Juno 1880. Who says it is
a strong ticket? The Democrats of Illi
nois says so, tho Republicans says so, tho
people who spetk honestly and truthfully
of all political complexions say so. Yes it
is a strong ticket. Why is it strong? Be
cause tho Democracy had the sense to so
Icet for the various state ofilees to bo filled
in November next, men of sterling worth
and unquestioned fitness for the respective
offices for which they have been nominated.

who know Mr. Harmon's worth will give
evidence of their appreciation at the polls.

Our advice to the Democracy of the state

torial and legislative honors. Let small
men for the present give way, and the big
men be urged and coaxed (if needs be) to
Cincinnati will respond to the example
of Illinois, and give us good nominations
for president ' and vice-president.
Then with good nominations
for other the state is safe.
Let no good man, no matter what office
he may have held, or what hopes he may
have held, or what hopes he may have en
tertained, refuse to serve his party at the
present time. By serving his party he
serves his country.
The Republican ticket in the nation and
in the state of Illinois is weak. Let us win
by making ours command the respect of
the people by its superior fitness.
John Quincy Adams, after filling the
presidential chair, became a member of
congress, and died in his chair m the house
Caleb Cushing, after being a judge of
the supreme judicial bench of Massachu
setts, member of congress, minister to for
eign countries, and member of President
Pierces cabinet, became a member of the
house of representatives in the state legis
lature. It is not the office that honors a true
man, it is the man that honors the office.
This being true we call upon reflecting
Democrats everywhere to set to woric and
put forth their best men for office, and thus
make the easy, triumph of our ticket
both national and state.

THE EQUITABLE LIFE
ISO BROADWAY NEW YORK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleven years its average an
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Compapy 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, 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.
