ILLINOIS DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM.
The following is the platform adopted :
Patriotic duty and interest demand peace
and reconciliation through all the land.
We pledge ourselves to the following prin-
First No tariff for protection.
Second No third terra.
Third A substantial reform of the civil
ecrrice 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 gold
and silver, and of paper convertible into
Sixth No more land grants to monopo-
Seventh The will of the people must be
jroprcnie 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 waes.
Tub platform adopted by the Rcpubli
cans at Chicago is a curiosity in its line.
It means nothing and is full of empty
ound. It meets with but little favor from
ike Republican press and party, and is the
subject of some pretty severe criticisms by
"Republican papers throughout the country
The New York Times gives it a left-hander
, af follows:
"The gentlemen to whom was intrustet
tho task of ' defining the claims
of the Republican narty to
' confidence, and tho purposes which it pro
poses to accomplish, have, unfortunately
proved inadequate to their duty. Thy
' . Jiave framed a document which contains
' ome important truths feebly stated and
luully mixed up with commonplaces, which
' will carry no conviction and scarcely at
tract attention, and which must lessen the
..forco of that which is really true,, The
,rln hv a lonat recitation of
what has occurred ainoe the Republican
party was first instructed, .with tho
control of tho national government
that is supposed to bo duo . to the
jaslicy to that party.- It is a tame accouut
of the achievements of the party, which
Lave, in lact, been glorious, and it contains
soine things so obviously unconnected with
anything-that tho party has done, that even
that for wjiich tho party deseryes credit Is
obscured, and the claim as a whole is de
prived of much of tho force which should
belong to it. An organization representing
as much intelligence, energy
and public spirit as is repre
sented by the Republican party, might well
afford to go to the country on a very suc
cinct and modest statement of the record
of its past. It is beneath its dignity to
dwell at so gTcat length upon that which
it has done regardless issues which no
longer exist, and in circumstances quito
different from those in which it finds itself,
and it is a serious error in political tactics
to confuse its actual services with claims
which can not bo logically sustained."
The Chicago convention lacked ono cle
ment of the grotesque. Ingersoll should
have given his lecture on hell, Sunday af
ternoon. The New York Tribune says tho Repub
lican nomination for the vice-presidency
was offered to Levi P. Morton, of New
York, but declined.
Senator Hoar would like to get hold of a
paper of any importance which doesn't call
attention to the fact that his speech in Chi
cago was a ridiculous mess of nonsense.
Uncle Solon Chase has got it bad. The
presidential bee is buzzing loudly in his
old white hat. Likewise the same might
be said about B. F. Butler and llendrick
"T bIIpa time nlublican allec time: dlcin-
oclat say plublican got bloody shirt. Chi
naman votce alloc same nlublican. and cct
job washee shirt. Tien cent. Brooklyn
The New York Tribune pronounces Gar
field a man of "ideal fitness." The ideality
of salary grabbing is something new.
The convention is over, and Conk ling has
washed his hands in cologne, and no longer
fraternizes with his colored brethren.
"Nothing but an act of God can prevent
the nomination of General Grant." Roscoe
fVinlfliniT. It looks as thousrh Roscoe pre
sumed upon a very slight acquaintance.
The Buffalo Courier says: "DeGollyer

to pay 130,000 for Woodin. ; We are aston
ished that the latter should auow sucn a

THE WHEAT CROP PROBLEM.
People interested in the wheat trade are
asking a very grave question, and as the
wheat question always comes in wherever
loaves are devoured, that question has a
wide bearing. Reports of the condition of
the crops in Great Britain and in France
are of a favorable character. There is no
appearance that last year's scarcity will bo
repeated this year. On this sido tho wheat
prospect is also good ; not only so, but the
high prices last year have caused a much
wider area of ground to be planted in
wheat this year than last. With a favor
able season and a large acreage, we shall
not raise less but more wheat than last year.
There is also much of last season's wheat
yet on hand in this country after export
ing over a Hundred ana sixty minion uusn
cls, notwithstanding all which, Chicago on
the last week in May, received more
wheat than on any former
week in its irrain historv. Tho whole ex
port from the United States for the season
is estimated at one hundred and seventy
five million bushels, and even then a large
Burrjlus will be left in the hands of erowers
and dealers. The question that is of such
importance and an answer to which is
worth thinking about is put as follows by
the New York Public: "If this country
produces as much wheat in 1880 as in 1879
and, on account ot good crops m hurope,
ran find a market for not more than 75.-
000.000 bushels abroad which is more
than was ever exported in any year prior
of 100,000,000 bushels or more? And in
that case, how far will the price of wheat
decline by October next?" And, we may
add, what will bo the position of the west
ern wheat grower?
ENGLISH FARMERS TOLD TO CROSS THE SEA
TO ESCAPE rOVERTY.
It is becoming a serious problem what
agriculturists are to do. They will not get
rents much lower in a hurry, for land com
mands a high value in the market, and is
difficult to be got at all except under spec
ial circumstance. Large proprietors wouiu
rather cultivate their own land at a loss
than submit to a reduction of rent telling
on its value. Nor have tho farming class
any right to expect to occupy tho hind ex
cept on such terms as the owner may choose
to insist upon. They have now the world
before them. Why do not tliey start
for the regions where land can
be cheaply rented and cheaply bought,
within easy reach ot the best markets in
the world, viz: our own? From all time
this has been a moving world, ever seething
with the warm currents of lite, ever peopled
with those who had received the order to
"move on," and had good reason to be
thanktul for it. There is nothing dark or
gloomy or inscrutable in the future before
us. Tho irresistable demands of commerce
have now bound together in closer unity
than ever the unity of mutual dependence
the vast, teeming British race. We really
hang together . to live or to do. There
tins long ceased to bo any diffi
culty or , just -scruple arising from the
rcupeorive peculiarities of our politi
cal and social institutions. An English
man is as much at home anywhere in
North, America as in any country in Great
Britain or Ireland. Why should anybody
spend his life and fortune in the attempt to
grow here tho food that he could urow
quite as good and much more cheaply a
fortnight' voyage off. Grant that the ap
peal is vuin to those who are grown old in
dull stay-at-home ways, who are afraid of
the sea.. or do not know or wish to kno
where America lies. There are plenty of
young men coming on, and by this time
they know the eeography of the world as
well as their lathers did that of their neigh
boring towns. Well, it people have money
and wish to lose if, let them stay at home.
If they have not money and wish to mnko
it, we apprehend that they will have to go
abroad. : '
Tub Old Stouy. Tho morning
sunlight look ed in through
the silken curtaius, lighting tho room as
with an angel's smile, suddenly enveloping
tho face of its occupant with a strange
brightness and transforming her ptilo
brown hair into waves of glistening gold.
Said the sunlight: "Maiden, I missed you
from the garden whore I used to find you
every morning, and I caino here to seek
you. Summer will soon be hero with her
roses almost as bright as your checks. Arc
you ill." "Oh, no!" responded the maiden,
warming her thin, bloodless hands in the
sunbeam, "only a little weak; I Bhallsoon
bo out in tho garden to greet you to-morrow
perhaps! I was just planning how I
should arrange my flowers this years,
when you peeped in. Are my lillics up
yet?" "Yes, your lillics are up ; I have just
been warming them. I have tired you,"
said the sunlight, as ho noticed the wearily
drooping eyelids; "I will come again to
morrow if you are not in tho garden" and
silently withdrew, leaving tho fair slum
berer along in the gloom. A few hours
later tho moonlight stole softly through
the silken curtains, which were gently
rustling in tho night breeze. "How cold !"
said tho moonlight, as she touched tho pal
lid brow and then gently laid her hand on
the pulseless heart. "Dead!" she shud
deringly whispered, as she withdrew
through the softly rustling curtains. It is
the old, old story of consumption. How
she flatters her victims at morning with
hope's honied words, and at evening makes
them the prey of the spoiler! Statistics
show that one-third of mankind die
of this disease, and ot these, tar the greater
part arc young persons between the ages of
fifteen and twenty-five, in the dawn of man
hood and womanhood. For many years,
consumption was generally believed to be
incurable. But medicine in her trimuph
ant march against disease has already add
ed consumption to her list of conquered.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
cures this dread disease if restored to in
time. For a full consideration of this dis
ease and its rational method of treatment,
read the article on consumption, in the
People's Common Sense Medical Adviser,
the most reliable popular work upon physi
ology, hygiene, diseases and their remedies,
yet published. Price $1.50. Address the
author, R. V. Pierce, M. D., World's Dis

The Florence Nightingale of the
Nursery. The following is an extract
from a letter written to the German Reform
Messenger, at Chambcrsburgh, Penn.:
Just open the door for her, and Mrs.
Winslow will prove the American Florence
Nightingale of the Nursery. Of .this we
are so sure, that we will teach our "Susy"
to say, "A blessing on Mrs. Winslow" for
helping her to survive and escape the grip
ing, colicking, and teething siege.
Mrs. Winslow"s Soothing Syrup re
lieves the child from paiu, aud cures dysen
tery and diarheea. It softens the gums, re
duces inflammation, cvrres wind colic, and
carries the infant safely through the teeth
ing period. It performs precisely what it
professes to perform, every part of it
nothing less. We have never seen Mr9.
Winslow know her only through the
preparation of her "Soothing Syrup for
Children Teething." If we had the power
we would make her, as she is, a physical
saviour to the infant race. Sold by all
druggists. Twenty-five cents a bottle.
The expenditure of brain power too ear
ly or too severely in children often results
in physical debility ; the use of Fellows'
Hypophosphites exerts a singularly hnppy
ctfect in such case. i
To all who arc suffering from the errors
and indiscretions of youth, nervous weak
ness, early decay, loss of manhood, etc., I
will send a receipt that will cure you,
free of charge. .This great remedy was
discovered by a missionary in South
America. Send a self-addressed enevlope
to the Rev. Joseph T. Inman, Station D,
New York City.

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 JEleyen years its average an
nual New Business has been
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, 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, S51SS'2,7865 and closed its
books ujron that date without a contested or past due claim."
The Equitable Life Assurance Society was the first to in
troduce the . -
TONTINE SAVINGS FUND POLICY,
And thereby to popularize life ins ma 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 of assets to lia
bilities thanany of the leading companies.
SECOND The Equitable saved more of its income last year
than any other company.
THIRD The Equitable' 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.
