ILLINOIS DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM.
The following is the platform adopted :
Patriotic duty and lntenst demand peace
fcnd reconciliation through all the land.
We pledge ourselves to the following prin-
. First No tariff for protection.
Second No third term.
Third A substantial reform of the civil
fcrvice so that federal officers shall be tile
wtrvants 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
Bixth No more laud grants to monopo
lies. . Seventh The will cf the people must be
unpreme and majorities must rule under the
constitutional methods. No more such
frauds as that of 187' no more 8 to 7.
Eighth That laws shall bo enacted to
protect laborers in the more prompt and
certain collection of their wages.
Hkrk is evidence of Democratic reform
that is pleasant to contemplate: Since the
xarpctbaggcrs have been cleaned out of
Florida the state taxes have been reduced
from 1432,347 to 1249,871) per annum, a
considerable floating debt has been paid
off, and the Btate's credit has been raised to
par. The state bonds, which were at CO
. and 70 in 1879, are now selling at 100.
Judoe Choate, of the United States Dis
trlct Court of New York, decided a very in
teresting question a few days ago. In the
United States statutes it is provided that
'.V, whoever shall print a copyright notice up
co any article upon which ho has not ob
taioed a copyright, shall be liable to a pen
, tltj of $100. It Is also provided that any
. person may bring suit to recover this pen-
v ' Alrv. and that the iniormcr sball receive

cd that one Dreyfuw, who is a dealer
iu prints of balloons and hanging-baskets,
printed uron theso articles b notico that
they were copyrighted. Ho instituted a
suit, claiming penalties amonnting to $14,
000 on the cround that tho notice waa
false, Judge Choato decided in lavor of
tlie defendant, holding that the statute ap
plied only to those articles which could bo
copyrighted. The prints of the balloon
and hanging-btiskets could not be copy
righted, and, hence, no penalty could be
recovered for printing the false notice upon
The seventh plank of the Republican
platform is as follows : "That tho purity
and patriotism which characterized the ear
lier career of Rutherford B. Hayes in peace
and war, and which guided the thougiits of
our immediate predecessors to him for a
presidential candidate, have continued to
inspire him in his career as chief executive,
and that history will accord to his adminis
tration of the honors which are due to an
efficient, just and courteous discharge
of the public business, and
will honor his interposition be
tween the people and proposed
partisan laws. Having made this high
and mighty resolve, the Republicans then
proceeded to nominate for the vice-presidency
the man whom President Hayes, in
the efficient, just and courteous discharge
of the public business, removed from the
collectorship of the port of New York.
Hayes said Arthur was corrupt and inef
ficient. The Repubicans say that the
purity and patriotism which characterized
the earlier career of Rutherford E. Hayes
have continued to inspire him
in his career, as chiet executive. Arthur
may well exclaim, "defend me trom my
lriends!'' He has been slyly stabbed with
a poisoned dagger.
SEYMOUR OR PALMER.
WHAT ILLINOIS SnOL'LD DO IN THE CINCIN
Pckin (111.) Times, 17th.)
If Mr. Seymour will take the nomina
tion, we believe he will make tho strongest
candidate, the country over, the Democracy
can name. But if he refuses to accept,
then we should like to see Mr. John M.
Palmer, of this state, get t)ic nomination.
Mr. Palmer would be as 6trong in the east
as any eastern candidate except Mr. Sey
mour, and stronger in the west than any
other man that could be named' He wauld
certainly carry Indiana and if Illinois
and Wisconsin cart be carried by any living
Democrat, John M. Palmer is that man.
Wo are a little afraid that the Seymour
movement in Illinois is not what it appears
to be on its face. Mr. Tilden's friends in
the Illinois delegation will use it as a cover
under which to work for Tilden. Davis'
friends will do the same, and Morrison's
friends will do the same. It strikes us that
Seymour's name was used for the purpose
of avoiding a clash among the friends of
the other candidates.
' If Mr. Seymour is not the bona fide choice
of the Illinois delegation, we hope to see it
rally unitedly for Mr. Palmer and stand by
him to the end. John M. Palmer is the
only practicable candidate Illinois presents.
Morrison has killed himself and every
body knows it. He has no show. David
Davis is not a Democrat and never was.
His nomination would kill all the enthus
iasm which the party now possesses. It
would be suicidal to put Mr. Davis at the
head of the ticket.
Palmer is able and sound. His nomina
tion, we think, would make Illinois a cer
tain Democratic state. We have no doubt
Unless Mr. Seymour is an actual, living
candidate we htipe to see this state stand
solidly for Mr. Puluier. If Seymour is a
candidate then we should be willing to see
it Seymour and Palmer or Seymour and
Hendricks. Either would be a good nomi
nation. We have talked with 6cores of leading
and representative Democrat, from all
parts of the state, during the last ten days,
and we have come to the settled conclusion
that it would be a grave mistake to put
Mr. Davis on tho ticket at all. If Illinois
would go into the convention and back
Mr. Palmor solidly, it would give him a
first-class show for the nomination. And
if nominated, he would certainly be elected
actnst Mr. Garfield.
OUR STANDARD BEARER.
A NCMTHEn.N VIEW OF THK DEMOCRATIC
Boston (Mass.) Fust,
lit nominatitiL' Hon. Lyman Trumbull
for L'overnor the Democrats ol Illinois
have done themselves great credit and hon
ored their party everywhere. Mr.
Trumbull needs no introduction to the in
telligent voter east or west, north or south.
He is one ot the mobt eminent statesmen
of which the country can boast, and his
name has often been seriously mentioned
in connection with a much higher ollice
than that of governor of Illinois. Origin
ally a Democrat, like many other honest
and able men he drifted into the lu pulili
can party during the slavery adlation
period. He wus elected to n judpesfiip
and afterwards a United Stoles senator.
In 1811(1 he refused to submit to the pHrty
yoke, but, with Fessenden, Fowler, Sum
ner and others, voted f;nist tho im
peachment of President Johnson. This
action caused Mr. Trumbull to bo tend out
of the party, from which, "taking one con
sideration with another," ho was very likely
Klad to escape. In 1872 he was prominent
In tho Orant movement, and ever since has
been a hard but unassuming worker in tho
Democratic ranks. Hois highly respected
in Illinois by men of all parties, and will
commund a vote largo enough to attest tho
wisdom of his nomination. Mr.Trumbull's
associate' on tho ticket is Col. Lewis II. Par
sons, a farmer, and is said to bo a man of
excollunr character and great executive
ability. Thus far a disposition is shewn on

It is au encouraging sign. No party can

Senator Edmunds is said to bo pleased
with Garfield's nomination, ,
Hie Philadelphia Sunday Transcript
thinks Blaine will "win in1! 1834.
Tho Boston Herald (Rep.) is disgusted
with tho nomination of Arthur for vice
president. The Alton Democrat defines Garfield as
a man of line political ideas, but coarse po
The Atlanta Constitution thinks that
Grant's expressions of friendliness toward
the south defeated him at Chicago.
The New Orleans Times says that if Gen.
Garfield is opposed, by Tilden, he may carry
one or two of the southern states. The
Times does not like Mr. Tilden.
Ex-State Senator Wood, of Pennsylvania,
who has recently seen Mr. Tilden, thinks
there is no doubt the latter will withdraw
and throw his influence in favor of Sey
mour. The presidential nominee of the Repub
lican party, we fear, will be hard to beat in
the state of Virginia, unless the Democrats
adopt a platform of principles at Cincinnati
which shall be ciear and distinct as to the
issues of the day. Portsmouth (Va.) Times
We have doubts whether the nomination
of ex-Senator Trumbull, of Illinois, by the
Democrats, as their candidate for governor,
can be described as weak.
