THE DEMOCRATIC STATE
Wo Und tbo following in tho Chicago
' Times' of May 30 :
Tho chairman of tbo democratic stato
central couimitteo has culled a mcuting ol
that committco to tako place nt Snrini:-
Held on tho 4th prox. The object of tho
meeting is supposed to uo to amend the
can tor tno democratic sluto convention,
so as to provide for tho nomination of ii
stato ticket ut tho sumo time that dclcgats
arn chosen to lJultltnoru. This is In deter
encu to tho request of tbo squud of liberal
republicans wlio mot at Springfield on tho
i!-d Inst., in tho cupacity seemingly, of u
sido show to tho rudicul stnto convention.
Tho progrummo thut was then promul
gated by that veteran democrat, Mr. Hor
ace White, wits that tho democrats nud lib
eral republicans should both hold statu
conventions at Springfield on tbo 26th
prox., and should put in nomination n
ticket for stato olUceri, a part of tbo can
didates to bo chosen by each convention.
It it not certain Whether this nrocrammo
will bo carried out or not, but it Is quite
certain that, so far as it involves tho in
dorsement of Greeley by tbo democratic
stato convention, it ought not. It is no
doubt competent lor tlio stale central com
mlttco to amend thoir cull so as to muko it
ono of tho objects of tho convention to
nominate candidates for stulo otilcera ; but
it is quito as competent for tho conven
tion, when it assemble?, to rcfu:o to take
such action, or, if it decides to nominate a
stato ticket, to refuse to co-opcruto with
tho liberal republicans.
Tho 'Times ' cannot bo coaxed into a
good humor and persists in being un
happy. But why should it, as it does,
thereforo follow that tbo ' Times ' should
persist in being untruthful nnd unfair?

WiiniKOTON, 1). C, May 21, 1ST3.
Tho spnato on Saturday, after a long
sosslon In secret, decided by a vote of 43 to
8 to agree to the supplemental article to
tho Washington treaty, and advised his
high-mightiness, who put his foot in the
business when he claimed consequential
damages, that ho had better patch up tho
blunder by negotiating for tho additional
article which was somowbat changed in
wordf, though not in spirit, from what
was dictated by Lord Granville. Rather
humiliating to our once great nation to
have a foreign power dlctato just what wo
must do, which dictation we follow as a
poodlo dog docs its mastor. England is
not to blame. Wo, through tho stupid
ass at tho head of affairs, placed ourselves
us a nation in a position beforo the world
which is humiliating to every Aroorican,
a position not defended by a singlo public
ist of any note, cither in this country or
Europo, and In order to creep out at de
cently as possible, being in tho wrong,
sonators not in accord with tho adminis
tration voted for tbo supplemental article.
Another reason was that the iiommcrclal.
monetary and business interests of the
country generally, demanded that the
treaty should bo saved that business and
trado should flow in its usual channels
without interruption, the present lurry
costing nlryady millions of dollars. Wo
ill withdraw our claim for conscquen-
nl damages, and the agreement fcr tho
futuro will bo that neither nation will bo
liable for indirect Josses, where ono Is a
belligerent and tho other a neutral. A
dispatch was received hero lust night,
stating that the supplemental article is
satisfactory to KnglanJ. Minister Thorn
ton will negotiate it and the senate will
act on it at once. The Geneva arbitration
ill proceed on the ISthof June to arbi
trate on tho claims fcr direct damages at
if nothing hud happened, and tho Grant-
ish administration will lay low on dam
ages hereafter, for if it hud a thousand
mouths tho words "consequential dam
ages." would stop them all.
SNAKE IN TIIK ORAHS.
The ku-klux bill which passed tho sen
ate, and on which tho Grantllcs rely to
bayonet tho south into submission to
Grant's rc-olection, is at tho bottom of the
bills on tho speaker's table, and cannot ho
reached in the ordinary course of legisla
tion. A suspension of the rules is neces
sary to tako it from its place. This re
quires a two-thirds voto, and tho democrats
can provont if they aro in their places and
as vigilant as thoy ought to be, which
thoy sometimes ore not. Tho radicals

will not see It, for even should they do as
thoy promise, which I am constrained to
doubt, it would be used as theso republi

Members representing every interest,

the scoro of economy in tlio cheapness
with which tho United States mails would

it was a subsidy in any tense, being simply
a letting out of the contract for carrying
tho mulls to tho lowott bidder, He said
ou might as woll lay you propose a tub

contract to carry the mall overland from
New York to San Francisco or from

Mr.Towniend.ofNesrYork, stated tivt
he wai opposed to subsidies in general,
but wai in favor of having one line of

flag at least on the Faclflo Ocean j also
that at present free trade in tbips It a fal

cast asldo all party and sectional prejudi

practical statesmanship worthy tho giants
of twenty years ago In our congress, acted
for.the good of tho wholo country.

TIIK KEYSTONE STATE.
Tho democrats nominate thoir candi
date for governor to-morrow at Reading,
This is very important for " as goes Penn
sylvania, so goes the Union." A good
nomination thoro will give hopo to tho
democracy throughout tho wholo country.
Among thc numcsprominontly mentioned
it that of Hon. W. McClelland M. C. from
the 24th district, who was elected by a
majority of over 1200 in a strong radical
district. He would inaku a strong candi
date, having a brilliant wu'r record, and
ii an able, earnest, energetic hard work
ing representative. Ho would concentrate
all the antagonisms to tho present radical
ring which rules tho stato, in ono solid
body and lead to certain victory. Mr.

Our heroine, with tho assistance of nor
fatter, now gavo her first big concert in
Peoria. Quite a number of amateurs as
listed her. Rouse's hall was filled, the
pooplo cheored, and Emma's fnlhor re
ceived ono hundred dollars. With this
amount sho left her father struggling nt
homo and started for Rock Island to, visit
a young lady friend. She found her friend
abtont, and ,hor money dwindled to
twenty cents. With this sho went to Mo
lino for ten cents to call upon n gentleman
by tho name of Deer, in wlioso family her
father hnd taught music twenty yean be

Mr. Deer was absent, and Mrs, Deer, a
crotchcty-facod old woman, was vory cr.
Sho looked Insinuatingly at Emma, nnd
said sho didn't know what n pretty young
girl wanted of her husband. Just then
Miss Abbott spied thu piano, and asked il
tho might play. In a moment she wua

droppod her dishes, wiped her hands on

"All right. You'ro a plucky girl and
I'll help you. You shall havo tho Con

And she did have it. Shu got her bills
printed, went around personally and
announcod tho concert, up in thu schools,
and tho bouse was crowded. She sang
with her usual sweetness, touching every
heart. It was a warm night, her gui
tar was out of tune, and tho strings broko
six times during tho evening. The an
dienco applauded whllo the mended them,
and laughed, and culled her out a dozen
times. When tho concert closed they
wanted her to repeat it, which sho did.

Miss Emma A. Abbott was born in Chi

uer latner, men a music teaciior, took ner
to tho llttlo city of Peoria, Illinois. Thu
little child then took intenso delight in
music. She had dreamt of singing in
public at tho age of six. When thoy read
to her sturiis of actors and lingers on the
siege, sue tnouglit tuoy meant a coach,
and wondered, with infantile fancy, how
tney could tnrow boquets Into a stage.

Tho little thing didn't know what a chorus
