Hun John II. Oberly was expected to
be present at the Central Committee meet
ing yesterday ; but he did not come, and
the committee and visitors were much dis
appointed. He had not promised positive

by the festivities consequent upon a Demo
cratic victory in the Blooinington election
on Tuesday, in which case he will be ex
cused by all here. '
Rose Eytiugo played "Felicia" at the

The number of delegates to the Con

June will be seventy-six. The vote cast
for Hancock and English in the several
counties of the district, nd tho representa

Besides tho committee members or
their representatives, there were preseut at
tho Democratic Congressional Committee
meeting at The Holiday yesterday, the fol
lowing gentlemen prominent in the party
in other counties of the district: Judge J.
W. Allen of Jackson, Judge M.C.Craw
ford of Union, Hon. J, M. Washburn of
Centreville, Hon. W. W. Birr of Carbon
dale, Mr. Barnwell of Jonesboro, Mr. L. N.
Ackerman of Carbondale, Mr. D. W. Kai
raker of Jonesboro, Mr. R. B. Duncan of
Cobden, Mr. C. S. Otrich of Anna, Mr. W.
S. Day of Jonesboro, and Mr. J. Y. Clem
sjn of Villa Ridge. It was a gathering of
men that would have challenged the respect,
if not the admiration eveu of men accus
tomed to meet with the shining lights of
the country. The proceedings were of tha
most orderly and dignified character. Not
an unduly loud word was spoken; not an
unpleasant remark passed; not the slightest
evidence of displeasure given from any quar
ter. It was a meeting that might have
excited tho envy of our Republican friends
who have of late years been having un
pleasant scenes at nearly all their politi
Judge Allen crowded mre good sense
to in bis little speech of ten or fifteen min
utes before the Central Committee yesterday
than the average political speaker gets
into an hours' barrangue. He believed
that the immediate future looked very hope
ful for the Democrats, in district, state and
county more hopeful than it had appeared
since 1852; more hopeful even that it look
ed in I87G when the party achieved a
grand victory out of which it wa3 cheated.
He believed that the country was at heart
Democratic ami could be carried again by
the party if it adhered to the principles
enunciated in former platforms and nomi
nated good men to represent those1 princi
ples. His reference in his connection to
Mr. Tilden, though indefinite, was under
stood and elicited general applause from
thoso present. The state, too, he thought,
could be carried by the Democrats if the
right men were nominated for state offices.
The Republicans had nominated Oglesby
who was thoroughly known all over the
state. Ho had been Governor for several
terms and had displayed no executive abil
ity; he had been a Senator and had given
no evidence otstateminship. He was not one
bit stronger in the state than bis party was
and his party was but very little stronger
than the Democratic party. If the Demo
crats, therefore, nominated a man but a
little stronger than their party was, they
would certainly carry the state by a good
majority, and he believed that Carter
Harrison was the right man for the bead of
tho ticket in the state and would give to
the party more than the strength it would
need to win next November. Prolonged
applause This congressional district
could also bo regained by the Democrats if
they would but nominate a good man for
Congress, one who would work earnestly
and energetically for success. The Demo
cratic party had been called the party of
blunders, but party history would prove that
it had been generally wise and that it was
not the only party that had ever blundered.
Another party had given frequent and
strong proof of a capacity for blundering
that had never been surpassed and seldom
equalled by tho Democrats. One of tho
blunders this other party was just now
about to commit was to re-nominate Capt,
Thomas for Congress in this district. The
Democratic party was also as strong in its
organizatio n as the Republican party was;
it settled littlo differences and disturbances
in its ranks as reidily and s perfectly as
tho Republican parly e,ver did, and it stood
before tho country to-day as solid and as
firmly rooted iu its time honored principles
as ever it did. Tho tariff question had been
cited as A sure means ot disrupting the
party. It had been predicted that the Mor
ris tariff bill would never pass the commit
tee, but it had ptifsed and was reported to
the house; that it waul 1 never be given a
hearing in the house, but it had been di
ed up Hnd admitteJ to a hearing. The
Democratic party was not split upon the
tuiilf is.-uo not any more, at. least, th.n
the Republican party was. A revision of
the tariff was demanded by the people gen
erally. A reduction of taxeb so that th re
would be no Urge surplus accuinuUtion in
the treasury every year, was the issue upon
which present Democratic majority iu the
lower housj of Congress had been elected,
and such a reduction would be made. Th re
were differences of opinion upon
minor points between a few members rip
resenting districts in which large iuterests
w. uld be affee'ed, but these differences
were not serious; they sprang from local
cau es and would be buried finally when
t lie great question of cutting down the rv
enU'i to the actual needs of the Govern
ment honestly ami economically adminis
trated was to be determined. This is but
a rough synopsis of the main portions of
tho little speech, given from memory. The
Judge was listened to with the ch oest at
tention by all and was congratulated after
wards. He rl tttered himself th t he
would occupy a high pusitiou in the party
duriog the coming campaign that of
"high privale"; and that he would use his
powers in behalf of the party nominees
throughout Southern Illinois. The people
here may, therefore, rest assured of an op
portunity of listening to one or more
of the judges characteristically forcible
speeches before very lung.
DEMOCRATS IX CuUXCIL
Pursuant to the call of Chairman Win.
II. Green, the IXmocratic Central Commit
tee of this congressional district met yester
day afternoon in parlor A. of The Halliday
in this city.
At about 2 o'clock I he committee was
called to ortler by Chairman Green, and the
roll call by Secretary Foreman, of Perry
County, was answered by the following
members and representatives:
Alexander, Judge W. II. Green; Pulaski,
Dr. N. R. Casey ; Union, Judge M. C. Craw
ford; Rindolph, W. M. Wilson; Perry, H.
A. Foreman; Williamson, J. F. Counell;
Jackson, J. B. Mayhani. The two last
named geutltmen were properly authori
zed proxies for the committeemen fietn the
counties they represented; and the mem
bers from Mansac, Pope ami Johnson coun
ties wtro not present and not represented.
The Secretary read the call issued by
the Chairman which set forth the order of
busiuess as follows:
The selection of the place for holding
the Congressional Convention, the selection
of the date, tho dttermln ition of the ratio
of representation in the convention and the
consideration of the question of organizing
permanent Democratic clubs in each county
in the district.
This order was followed. In response
to a request by the Chair, for suggestions
under the first head, Judge M. C. Crawford
suggested Anna as tho place for holding
the convention; Mr. Foreman suggested
Du Quoin; Mr. Mayham, Murphjsboro, and
Judge Green, Cairo.
The roll call was ordered and resulted as
First vote, viva voce, Cairo, 2 Du Quoin,
3; Anna, 1; Murphysboro, 1.
Becoud vote, Cairo, 2; Ou Quoin, 3; Mur
physboro, 2. Anna was dropped.
Third vote, Cairo, 3; Du Quoin, 3; Mur
Fourth vote, Cairo, 4; Murphysboro, 3;
and Cairo having received a majority of tho
YOte cast was declared by the Chair to I e
the place for holding the convention.
Several suggestions as to the date were
made. Judge Crawford suggested tho
20th ef Juue, which was amended to the
2Gth of August, which in turn was amend
ed to Tfiursday, the 12th of June, ami this
last was the date finilly agreed upon.
Tho ratio of representation was fixed at
the same as governed two years ago, one
delegate for every two hundred or fraction
of one hundred and over, cast for Hancock
and English iu 1830.
Upon motion of Judge Crawford the
question of organizing permanent clubs was
deferred for consideration at the convention
on the 12th of June.
The Chair then called upon Judge W. J.
Allen for a few remark, and the Judge
responded somewhat hesitatingly, making
a littlo speech that was replete with good
sense and hopeful 1 nets, during the delivery
of which he was frtquently interrupted by
applause. The committee then adjourned
until 10 o'clock a. nt. ot the 12th of June,
when it is to meet again at the same place.
Tho merits of an agent like Athlophoros
do not depend on the wonderful cures it
effects, so much as on the fact that it is a
common sense remedy. Yet so many of its
cures are truly marvelous that once in a
while their mention i proper. S. R. Walk
er, Center Ave., East Pittsburg, Pa, writes:
"A Inly friend at McKeesport, to whom I
recommend Athlophoros, had been laid up
with rheumatism for a year, and given up
by several doctors. After taking the spe
cific for two weeks, she has greatly improv
ed, and her despair has turned into enthusiasm.1'
