"Returning home to-day alter an absence

it Is the fashion, however, to conceal ambi

some guarantee of one's sincerity seems
neelful. Let mo tlieiefore commit myself
now to a statement of what no i ne knows
but myself. It Is known that I removed
from Illinois to St. Louis in 187S -that I
remained there throe years and that I did
not return until 1831. It is not known,
however, but I now state it to be a fact, that
when I went to St. Louis, 1 went with tho
intention to become a citizen of another
statu than Illinois, and cotiseqiiently, in tho
eyes of the law, I abandoned my resideuco
mid citizenship in Illinois. Now it wiis'my
honor to hcip fiame ibocnnstitiitioiMif this

tution which requires thu governor to havo
been a resident of the state dining the five
years, preceding his election.
