In the person of Joseph Medill. editor
of the Chicago Tribune that is, if

lIcARtr.s were given at Washing

The morning pajx-r is quick to

some days it has been taking it for
granted "that reorts diligently circu

for reelection to the legislature in
the ounty convention were correct,
and has been making a goose of it
self, telling what it knew alout what
tho convention was going to do. 1 he
proceedings of the day showed the
Union to le ofT, as usual. It had
better acquire the faculty of ascer
taining in advance what republican
conventions are to do, for its own
pence of mind, before venturing too
far at guess-work concerning the
likely attitudo of gatherings of other

of the Union's forecasts were veri
fied. There was not the least opjwv
sition manifested or even an attempt
to manifest opposition to Mr. Mulli
gan. There could not have been
stronger proof of the indisposition of
the convention to take any such
coarse than the fact that while it was
controlled by Mr. Cable's friends and
and the Tote for Mr. fcilvis for chair
man of the county committee dem
onstrated what could have been done
by resolution on the legislative ques

mention was made whatever of en
