l'O BROADWAY NEW YORK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for

rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
Asa GUARANTEE of this,
cious influence of a technical
companies, the Equitable makes
new, throughout the United States.
After llie policy has been in force for three years.
"Hie Equitable Life has paid since its organ
ization to-January 1st, 1880, $51,882,786, -and
closed its books upon that date without a con
tested or past due claim."
The Equitable Life Assurance Society was the first to in
TONTINE SAVINGS FUND POLICY,
And thereby to popularize life insurace to a degree before
Ry the late report of the Insurance Commissioner for the

bilities than any of the leading companies.

than any other company.

any other of the leading companies.

wife in profusion, and a large number of

occasion furnished every opportunity for
happiness, and the festivities were prolong'

CONCERNING HON. JOHN II. OBKRLY.
Springfield Journal (Republican.)
It is gratifying to be assured that the
democratic party is at last to have a party
orjrau in this statu worthy of the name.
For sometime pwt there have been rumors
afloat of Decollations for the establish
ment ot a democratic daily at some point
in the state -exactly where did not seem
to be settled, as Bloominzton. Peoria.
Quiney aud Chicago have all been men
tioned in connection with the enterprise
witbytin ample capital and with Hon. John
H. Oherly, the democratic member of the
present railroad and warehouse board, at
its head. The scheme seema at last to have
taken definite shape, and au apparently au
thentic report now comes to us that it ha
been definitely decided to establish tho
new organ at Bloomington, and that Mr.
Obcrly has been invited to accept its man
agement. The fact that ho has.; taken
$),000 stock in the enterprise (as stated in
a Bloomington paper) would indicate that
ho is pretty certain to accept. The total
capital raised is said to bo $15,000, which
will undoubtedly bo more than ample for
the equipment of an ofllce, but will proba
bly all be needed before the enterprise can
bo fairly placed upon its feet.
Tho need by tho Democracy of Illinois,
of a respectable party organ has long been
manifest and frequently remarked upon.
Since the defection ot the Chicago Times, it
cannot e said to have had anything worthy
of the name certainly, nothing which
exerts any controlling influence upon the
politics of tho state. It is doubtful if an,
"organ" can greatly benefit the party for
it can no more create voters than Glen
dower could call spirits from tho "vasty
deep" certainly not in tho present stage
of democracy degeneracy. Your true
political necromancer, and tho only one
that has aided 10 any efficient manner to
strengthen tho power of the democrat!?
party, in the past fifteeen years, has been,
the southern bull-dozer and tissue-ticket
pedler. It is greatly to be doubted, there
fore, if the adherents of that moribund
party, who aio now sighing lor an ' organ,
will not find that they aro leaning on a
"broken reed" one that will pierce the
hand that holds it -when they get it.
But, assuming that they mast have aa
"organ" and we certainly wish to sou
them gratified we know of no one better
qualified to take charge of it than tho recent
democratic candidate for secretary ot
state. Ready, witty and talented, with
experience os a journalist, he will brine to
tho task before him an ability possessed by
few and surpassed by none in the state.
Not always in harmony with tho self-constituted
leaders occasionally startling his
party by unexpected "spurts" of liberalism
Mr. Oberly's party would have mani
fested more wisdom, on frequent occasions
within tho past few cars, if it had fol
lowed him more implicity than it has dono.
Indeed, we suspect that wiser members of
tho party and perhaps others not so wise
have discovered that a fatal mistake was
made when Mr. Oberly was "frozen" out
of the State Register office in this city, a
year ago, but it was a blunder which ho
may yet live long onough to see revenged.
With this kindly warning to the party
against expecting too much of their "or
gan," and with a lively appreciation of the
difficult not to say impossible task be
foro hint, we personally wish Mr. Oberly
abundant success in his new enterprise
