Norman A. Nozley is making telling
speeches for the Republican party
throughout Southeast Missouri. Mr.

and he is making friends for himself

The election of McKinley means con

his overthrow foreshadows the re

the nation in gloom under the Cleve

A bill has been introduced into the
Mexican Congress to appropriate $30,

John M. Palmer, the most promt
sient figure in the history of Illinois
is dead. Mr. Palmer was
born on Eagle Creek, in Scott county,
Kentucky, September 13, 1817. He
dnoved to Illinois in 1831 and has been
j& resident of that state ever since.
"When the war broke out Mr. Palmer
raised the 14th Illinois Infantry and
was eventually promoted to a major
jgeneralship and given command of
tan armv corps. In 1868 he was elect-
Governor on the Republican ticket
Uen. .Palmer became dissatisfied with
nhc administration of Gen. Grant and
latterfj allied himself with, the Demo
cratic party. His family consists of
his wife, two sons and four daughters,
the latter being all married. His wife
was Melinda Ann Neely, to whom he
was united in marriage December 20,
1842. Ten years ago Gen. Palmer

Hobson, the Merrimac and Manila
Bay, but then he was no further off
than in accusing the Administration
of scheming to establish an empire,
However, a Populist-Democrat has so
little to stand on that he ought to be
