SENATOR DAVID Il.WK HIT FOR HANC'X U
l.l.I'll.H FROM THE UI-TJNOIIMILD JfRlsT
Bi.oomini.ton, III., Aug. 4, lSssl. Dear
Sir: The training and habits of my life
naturally leads me to prefer civilians to sol
diers, for the great civil trust, but us parties
are organized, voters must choose between
the candidates they present or mut stand
aloof indifferent or neutral, which no good
citizen ought todo ata presidential election.
I have no hesitation in supporting Han
cock, for, best of all reasons to my mind,
because his election will put an end to
sectional strife and sectional parties,
and will revive a patriotic sen
timent all over the laud, which political
eaders and factious for sinister ends have
sought to prevent. I here can be no per
manent pr-'spi-rity without pacification.
Great as were the achievements of Gi n.
Hancock in war, Ids conduct in peace,
when in command of Louisiana and Texas
in 1807, whs hlill greater, and greatly com
mends him to the confidence of the coun
try. That was the time when passion ruled
in the public councils, ami military power
was exerted to silence civil authority. The
temptation was strong to sail with the rush
ing currents, for an iullamed partisan
opinion was too ready to con-lone excesses
and to applaud opprcsMoti.
Gen. Hancock's order No. 40, in nsstim
ing charge of the Fifth Military district,
unnouiiecd the right of trial by jury, the
hubeas corpus, the liberty of the press, the
freedom of speech, the natural rights of
person", and the rights of property must bo
respected, These principles tire the basis
of free government, ami the proclamation
of them by Gen. Hancock stands out in
striking contrast with the action of Ids su
perior, who Koon alter rebuked and drove
him from that command for uttering sent!
ments worthy of a soldier; the soldier,
clothed wiih cr.traordiimry power, volun
tariiy uncovered before tlw civil authority,
sheathed his sword, testified Lis fidelity to
tho constitution and Bet an ex
ample of obedience to law which will pass
into history as his soundest claim to dis
tinction. Tho man who in tho midst of tho
excitements of that stormy period was cool
enough to see his duty clearly, and cour
ageous enough to txecuto it firmly, may
well be trusted in any crisis. His letter to
Gen. Sherman, recently brought to light,
lifts Gen. Hancock far abovo tho past ap
preciation of his civil ability. It marks
him as one of the wisest of his time, with a
statesman's grasp of mind, and the integ
rity of a patriot whom no sense of expe
diency could swerve from his honest con
victions. A long and unchecked position
of power by any party lends to extrava
gance, corruption and loose practice.
After twenty years of domination by
the republicans, chmnic abuses have be
come fastened on the public service like
barnacles on the bottom of a stranded ship.
There is no hope of reform by the leaders
who have created a system of maladuiin
stration, and who are interested in perpet
uating its evils. Nothing short of ttie
sternest remedy gives any promise of effec
tive reform, and the first step towards it is
in a change of rulers. The government
must be got out of the ruts in which it has
too long run. New blood must be infused
in the management of public affairs before
relief cm be expected. The people .de
mand a change, and being in earnest, art
likely to be gratified. Very sincerely,
To Hon. Jas. E. Harvey, Washington
The delegates to the congressional con
vention for the Eighteenth district met at
Du Quoin last Thursday with many of the
working republicans. After some deliber
ations, John R. Thomas received the nomi
nation, which cast a damper upon Repub
licanism of this district. Mr. Thomas can
not bs elected. He is unpopular with his
own party, and many Republicans will not
support him. He is so unpopular that he
cannot poll the entire Republican vote.
As great a mistake was made in nominat
ing Thomas us was made in nominating
Garfield. It is folly to think
because Thomas was elected in
1878, that lie can succeed again.
It was not his popularity that made
him successful, but through some scheme
or other he received the nomination which
resulted in an diction from the fact that
many were prejudiced against Judge Allen,
by the cry of a little 'straw bill' which Josh
refused to vote fi-r, for good reasons, which
has been assigned. It is plain the Republi
cans do not expect to be successful this fail,
or they would not put up such a man as
John R. Thomas, a very ordinary attorney
at law. We wonder if the people have for
gotten how John R. treated his client in
the Burklow case. Thomas is p's-essed of
no superior nViiity, and he cannot make
respectably appearing speech; al
though it is true he can make a great nuis ',
and tell a few anecdotes, and that is all it
amounts to. It would have beenViucli
better for Thomas, hud lie withdrawn his
name from before the convention, and let
the party nominate a man who could com
mand the respect, confidence and the
hearty, earnest support of the whole party.
There is great opposition to the re-elec
tion of Thomas by many of ths leading
Republicans, and it is not denied that the
opposition is well taken. Fatty you are
too short to reach so hi'di.

THE EQUITABLE LIFE
lO BROADWAY NEW YORK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleyen years its average an
nual New I)tisines 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, audits
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.
