end be disastrous to the cause. Their plan
is to pull it through. Admit the charges
and ask the people, "what are you going to
do about it." The doctrine to be adopted

Mr. Geo. E. Clark returned, a day or
two ago, from Notre Dame, Ind., where he
has been attending tho noted Notre Dame
university. He is here to spend the vaca
tion, and will, at the end of that period, re
turn to resume his studies. He took a
prominent part in the closing exercises and
as we see from a report of the affair to the
South Bend Daily Tribune, acquitted him
self most creditably. The account refer
red to says: "G. E. Clark spoke for the
St. Aloysius Philodemic association, and
the society may well feel proud, of their
representative. Mr. Clark undoubtedly
carried off the honors of the ocaasion, for
ho other society man showed such care in
tho preparation of his address, nor such
study to mate it a success."
We publish in another place the an
nouncement of Mr. Angus Leek as a candi
date for states' attorney of this county. To
say that it gives us pleasure to be able to ad
vocate him for that position, is hardly stat
ing the case. We feel that his election is as
sured becauso he is a young man of good
diameter, correct politics, more than usual
ability and having a popularity against
which no opponent can prevail. Mr. Leek
is one of the best young lawyers we have
in the county and could not fail to satisfy
the public in any position where their in
terests were in litigation. He is an inde
pendent candidate in tile coming campaign
in whom the people have explicit confi
dence, and for whose election Tue Bulle
tin will labor incessantly; not because it
believes that he needs our efforts to elect

Our senatorial delegates had a meet
ing yesterday at which they came to the
conclusion that Mr. I. L. Ilirrell was the
best man to represent this district in the
state legislature. They could have come to
no better conclusion, for Mr. Harrell is in
every respect the right man for that posi
tion. It is only necessary to know him to
recognize in him- all the elements of an
able and a wine legislator. His intimate
acquaintance with our state laws and the
mode of their operations in the business,
social, and criminal world, will give him a
command over the law making machinery
ot the state, which will be at once recog
nized upon his eutrance into the halls at
Springfield, and produce beneficient results
to the people at large. He is, too, a
stronger man for the party than most any-
other, in so fa- as he can accomplish more
with the rural voters of the district, in bis
calm.convincing and familiar ma?ner, than
half a dozen kid gloved gentlemen wth a
hundred nicely worded speeches.
On our second page in this issue, we
publish the Democratic platform adopted
by the Cincinnati convention. The plat
form is, in many respects, an admirable
document, and, as a declaration ot princi
ples, is calculated to invite the confidence
of the country. The great fraud of . 1S70
77 is clearly dofiued, aud made a leading
issue in the coming campaign. There are
thousands of people, not strongly allied to
any political organization, who believe that
the Democratic p;irty suffered a great
wrong in the last national political
contest, and they will not hesitate
to express that belief at the
polls next November. The condemnation
of tho present administration for its course
in abusing the civil service, by distributing
places as a reward for political crime, and
the demand that it shall be rendered im
possible for a defeated candidate ever again
"to bribe his way to the seat of the usur
per," will meet with a hearty response from
the popular heart. The declaration that
the public lands must be kept tor
actual settlers is timely and
wise. The granters of large bodies of land
to great corporations not only impedes the
development of the country, but tends to
build up monopolies which are dangerous
and oppressive. We are particularly satis
fied with that portion of the platform
which demands honest money and a strict
maintaiuance ot the public faith, state and
national. Nothing is more in c 'ssary to
the prosperity of the country than honest
money and the maintainanco of the public
faith, anil, in placing itself on record as hear
tily favoring both, the Democratic party
has shown that it is entitled to the fullest
confidence. Thew is another part of the
platform which will attract wide attention.
It is relative to the common schools. The
)arty declares that they must be protected
and fost.-red. The public schools are very
dear to the hearts of the American people
and any attempt to break them up or to
lessen their inlluencc will be resisted in a
way th'tt it deserves. Altogether, tho plat
form sets forth clearly and strongly the
principles of the Democratic party, and
tho issues upon which the campaign is to

HANCOCK AHEAD !
CAIRO'S JUBILANT DEMO
CRATS. THEY FORM TnE FIRST CAMPAIGN
CLUB IN ALEXANDER COUNTY.
BOUNDLESS ENTHUSIASM AND A DETERMINA
TION TO SUCCEED PERVADES THE
In pursuance to the call published In
TnE Bulletin yesterday and the day be
fore, a large aud enthusiastic crowd gath
ered at the hall over the commission stores
of Messrs. Cunningham & Smith nd Wm.
Lonergan. The hall is a large one, capable of
accommodating not less than three hundred
persons.and though not elegantly furnished
has yet all the necessary contrivances for
carrying en the meetings of a political
club, which needs only spice, seats and
light. The first of these, as aforesaid, is
ample, and the others were supplied by the
energetic Democratic worker, Walton
Wright. At the appointed hour the crowd
began to gather around the door below and
at a signal from a few they made a rush tor
up stairs. Old and young were there, all
ready to begin the work of the present
campaign. The hall was well filled with a
crowd as intelligent, as enthusiastic, and as
determined as ever gathered anywhere for
any purpose. Throughout the meet
ing the proceedings were mark
ed by unity generality and
depth of feeling. Everybody present
seemed to be anxious to do his share to
ward affecting a thorough organization,
which would most effectually bring out the
full strength of the party in the city and
county. After the organization of the gen
eral, or supreme club, in which every voter
in the county, without regard to color, was
hiclcued, had been effected ; the young men
present formed a separate organization of
their own, and it is a fact, that hardly ever
were that portion of our citizens so thor
oughly aroused to action, as were these.
Taking into consideration the short notice
given, the fact that bo many of our men,
both young and old, are employed even
ings, the early stage of the campaign, and
the general feeling of certain Democratic
victory that prevails here, as elsewhere, it
was a surprise to all present that so large a
crowd gathered there to begin the work of
an exciting campaign. It must bo admit
ted by all, both Republicans and others,
who know anything about last night's
work, that the politicul ball received a kick
in this end of the state, which will start it
upon its route over the country, receiving
additional kicks tit every precinct, until it
rolls booming and thundering over the en
tire state, and Its roar is heard at Spring
field in conjunction with hun
dreds of others from every
county in Illinois, all sound

and the downfall of unprincipled Radical
The organization was begun by elect

aud B. F. Blake temporary secretary. Mr.
W. W. Wright, through whose efforts the
meeting was chiefly brought about, was re
quested to state the object of the meeting,

He referred to the past history of the Dem
ocratic party as proving it to be the cham
pion of personal liberty whenever it w;is in
danger, the rescuer of our institutions from
tho vile clutch of no-uothingism, Ironi
which the Republicanism of to-day-sprung,

He spoke with much feeling of the Ger
mans; saying, in substance, that he could
not understand why a portion of this class
should lend their support to any party that
opposed the one to which they owed their
citizenship, their suffrage and tna free exer
cise of their religion. The judge's remarks
were highly interesting throughout but
owing to a lack of time and space we are
compelled to refrain from further comment.
The committee appointed to draft plans

DEATH OF DR. FOOTE.
Dear Sin: -I read in to-day's Globe
Democrat that Rev. Dr. Charles H. Foote
died yesterday morning at his residence in
Ionia, Michigan. It was known here that
his health had been bad tor some time, but
cheering reports had been received of his
partial restoration. From the statement of
the brief dispatch, his death seems to have
come suddenly upon his family in tho
midst of their fund hopes. The report of
it is certainly a great surprise and shock to
his very numerous friends ia Cairo.
It was my furtuue to know Dr. Foote
quite intimately before I came to labor as a
minister in his former field. It was no
surprise to uu to find when I
came here that, not only
within the church, but among
all classes of the people, his name seemed
to awaken pleasint recollections and
to be, indeed, as "ointment poured for'.h."
It will, perhaps, be pleasant to our psople,
now that he hasgone to his eternal reward ,
to know that from my first acquaintance to
the last interview I had with him, he never
spoke of Cairo or her people but in terms
of kindness, affection, and gratitude. Dr.
Foote leaves no immediate family but his
wife and daughter, Mamie. Nowhere, I
am sure, can they hive truer or deeper
sympathy in their great bereavement, than
It is not needful, even if, at this hour,
time and your space permitted,
that I should attempt a portrayal
of this good man's character, for most of
your readers remember him well, not ouly
as an able and useful minister, but as a
Permit me, however, to say that I put
myselt among tnoso to wnoui ma uem
comes as a personal loss. His tinio and
steadfast friendship had placed mo under
un lyiug obligations aud bound me to him
in ties of genuine affection. Appreciating
his worth as a man, a Christian, and a
minister of the gospel. I tako a melan
choly pleasure in bearing this tribute to
bis memory. Very respectfully yours,
Benj. Y. Geohob.
