tho land, status, tho amount of land granted

To this tnblo is appended tho following

state," their rejronslhllitic werogrcat, and,
looking myself onlv to tho interest ot our

hoped nnd expected u far different result
from their deliberations. I hoped to sco
thl great partv. with so much power, for

Northwest, oral least in Illinois, nnd to
hear them nsiirt with no hesitating or un
certain voice, the rights of the West, and
to boldly proclaim tlint thoy will no i

Kngtand and the money lord who nro I

nually robbing us of uncounted million. :
I hoped to hear them proclaim that th

no longer bo mcru cat's'naws in tho hand
of the bondholder., bankers, maufactiirors,
and land grabbers, who aro seizing by
wholesale upon the inheritance of tho
people. At an Illlnolsan, proud of our
noblu state. I read tho platform adopted

pain and mortification. It is n shamele-s ,
