A SO UND PL A TFORM.
Tho "Wisconsin democratic State plat
form' declares that the democracy of
that Btalo rejoice in tho prompt
acquiescence of tho Southern peoplo in
theresultaof thowar; In every well di
rected effort for tho enlightenment and
elevation of oppressed humanity nt homo
and abroad, and will favor every mean
are, compatible with good government
and public order, to broaden tho basis of
uffrago and extend the blewlugs of our
free Inntltutlons to all classes or people.
At tho aamo time, they deplore tho many
palpable infringements of congress upon
the liberties or the people and the free
dom of the ballot; Its failure to recog
nize the equitable right or foreign bora
1 residents to au early participation in the
privileges or the ballot box on liberal
terms, and Its constant effort to burden
labor and encourage monopoly. The
covert purpose or congress to enlarge and
oentraliie the federal government, is
also dunouueed us destructive or tbo
rights ortho Htates and tho people . Tho
fatal roaults, in short, or following radi
cal policy to its logical consequences,
are pointed out with statesmen-like
Tho position taken by tho Wisconsin
democracy embraces tho llvo issues bo
foro the people, and their platform will
eommaud tbo cordial approvul of tho
saaues of tho party everywhere. It Is a
onaervutlvo position, and had it been
fully recognized and set forth In the dem
ocratic platform ujon which Hey m our
was plnced, the country to-day would
not be under tho rule of the "Great
American traveler." All Hint there Is in
'progressive democracy" Is net-forth In
tho Wisconsin platform, aud whoro is
there an honest, Intelligent democrat
who docs nut lend It his oordlal approba
Tho country Is appalled at tho frequen
cy of act of self-destruction. Thoy form
the sensation for the local columns of at
least half tho papers that reach our table.
And murders, foul aud most diabolical,
are scarcely less frequent. The telegraph
la dispatches of yesterday, speak of the
following: DoraU. Hanson, a beautiful
and unliable young lady, resident of
Kansas City, Mo., took strychnine on
Monday last, and died within three hours.
Cause: u quarrel with her lover. James
Dowe, a Canadian, cut his throat from
ear to car with a razor, lu Kausas, Mo.,
on tho same day, assigning no reason
for the rash act. A younu man named
Wullhlll was arrested in Nashville,
Tenn , Saturday night, and on tho fol
lowing day nhot himself through tho
heart with a plbtol. Herbert Field, u
Michigan bauker, was knocked In the
head with a blung-shot a few days ago,
and on Mouday his body was found on
tho lake shore, near Walnstee. John
Urcnnorman was arrested In Morris, III.,
on Saturday, for murdering his father.
A negro, named Jell' Thompson, dealt a
white girl named Jennlo Couley, several
violent blows on tho head with an iron
bar, at Dos Arc, Ark, on Haturday, and
white she was insensible, curried her to
the woods and ravished her; and so ou
The brutal heartlessnusH of Grant as
manifested toward his old comrade, aud
the man to whom he owos all thero Is
to admire in both his military and pol
leal life, tho late Gen. Ilawllns. In
vain did tho dying man call for tho
heartless pleasure seeker to visit him.
Asa corpse Grant looked upon tlw dead
body a moment, then, forgetful of all the
decencies of life, rushed back to Now
York to a renewal of his rounds of excite
ment and dissipation. He acted as tho
eoarse, unfeeling man that he is, and
thero are none so lost to tho require
ments of deconcy, as to attempt to apol
ogia for him.

The Chicago 'Times' brings us this bit
of personal and legal intelligence: "Ma
dame Myra Uradwell, ono of ,tho strong
minded sisterhood," or Chicago, is nbout
to bo admitted to tho bar as an attorney
und counsellor-at-law. Judge Brudwell,
iho husband of Madame Hradwoll, will
bo retired In November noxt from the
bench of tho county court, and as he
don't know much law himself ho natur
ally will want n partner In tho profess
ion. The stylo of the now llrm will
' probably bo: ' Myra llrad welt and Hus
band" Tim Philadelphia Aire1 Havs: "A
formidable movomont Is on foot among
tho radicals, wo understand, to withdraw
'tho gory Geary" as tholr candidate for
Uovernor and substitute some ono olso
in hlsphico who can oxolto a rensonablo
amount of enthusiasm in tholr ranks.
Wo hope this will not bo done Geary

caro about having tlio trouble of defeat,

in tho Hold, by all moans."
A DIVIDED HOUSE.
Thero Is trouble iu the judical camp,
in Perry county. The DuQuoin 'Tribune'
supports what it is pleased to term the
regularly nominated republican ticket.
Tho Plnckneyvllle 'Banner,' hacked
by Taraaroa and Bcaucoup precincts,
denounces tho convention that
made the nominations as a
packed affair that was engineered by
DuQuoin, and gives in Its adherence to
an Independent ileket upon which are
the names of some of the best men or the
county. In the 'Tribune's' estimation
the Independent ticket hi the miserable
bantling or a "ring" or "soreheads" and
"bolters; in the opinion of the 'Ban
ner' the so-called regular ticket Is
being run in the interest or a DuQuoin
"clique," that has squandered tho
people's money to forward DuQuoin
projects, and that has acted In bad faith
with the public generally. It is an in
teresting fight, and If It should bo mo
means ofDlaclnir tho affairs of tho county
under democratic control, It will bo the
best thing that ever happened In 1'erry
PENSYL VANTA ELECTION.
John W. Forney expresses the opin
ion that unions the radicals or I'eusylva-
nia noli a full vote they will lose the
State. Tho change made In the local
ticket In Philadelphia will add a great
deal of strength to tho State ticket.
Prominent democrats In Washington
have received onaurance that racker
will Imj elected by a very declslvo major
ity, that there are at least five thousand
disaffected radicals who refuse, most
peremptorily, to vote for Geary.
Grant ban promised to sustain Davis,
tho mouKrel candidate for Governor of
Texas. It Is qui to probable that Grant
Is Ignorant enough to believe that he,
as president, has a perfect right to Inter
fere In Btate elections. We shall not
know until the end of his term, what a
consummate ass our president Is.
It Is believed that Ilawllns alone, stood
between Grant and the Bout well style of
radicals. Now that hU restraining in

The New Haven 'leaver' says : ''Stokes
muvh. 'tho Renubllcan nart.v in Tennessee

Tennessee, but wo can,t say as much lor
tho other place."
Longstreet has appointed fifteen ulg
gerfc to places In the New Orleans Cus
tom Houee. He promised Grant to make
a vllo nigger of himself to get the up"
polntment of the collectorshlp.
Tho Cincinnati 'Gazette,' having writ
ten an article against bteallng, isasvallcd
by all Its mongrel associates as having
almost deserted Grant's party and gone
over to tho democracy.
An exchango wants to get Susan B.
Authouy married, as a means of quiet
ing her. But Is thero a man on earth
who Isdoservlng of such punishment?
An exchango says that there Is no
doubt that Secretary Rawlins, sinking
umder consumption, did derive the
groalest benefit from tho uso or raw beer,
aud so improved under this diet that
hopes were eutertalned, at ono time,
thot ho might even recover. Physicians

whoro the stomach rejects almost ovcry

Pella, Illinois, has too much of a good
thing. Tho city council lately passed an
ordinance forbidding tho railroad com
pany to run trains through tho village at
a higher rate or speed than six miles an
hour, and also requiring that tho engi
neer should ring the bell at all crossings
and "toot tho whistle at all cattle on or
near tho track." Tho company thought
this was asking too much, but in order to
comply with tho ordinance; engineers
wero directed to start tho whistles on
crossing the corporation line and keep
them blowing until the train is out of
hearing or tho town. Every train pass
ing through thus gives tho people about
twenty minutes of whistle. Tho citizens
desire a compromise.
