Entry, of this city, as democratic
eaodldate for minority represents
tlve from the Thirtv-thfrd district at
Cambridge yesterday, was an honor
most oeniungiy bestowed. Mr. Me-
r.mry'a name was eloquently placed
before the convention by John T.
Stafford, while the seconding soeech
was made by C. M. Turner, of Henry
coanty. The convention thereupon
declared Its choice by acclamation.
The new senatorial committee is
composed of C M. Tamer, J. T.
at anora and John Senator. Jr.
Tin purpose of the Illinois delega
gatlon to the national democratic
convention to abrogate the two
thirds rule. Is not only impolitic and
unwise, but uncalled for. The two-
iniraa rule is one of the unwritten
laws which have governed demo
cratic conventions for the last half
century, and at a time whan tha n.
ver wing has two-thirds of the dele
gates to ine convention, it is unnec
essary to discard the time honored
party tenets in order to accomplish
the SUCCSSS of certain riAlii...
which are only after all but a part of

etitute the platform on which democ
racy is to stand.
Another of the beautiful laws of
the last republican legislature haa
been declared void. It is the idiotic
flag mandate, for the alleged viola
tion of which Gov. Altgeld and the
trustees of the state university were
""""'" toe juage at Champaign
dismissing the case. It don't Uke
a judge to kaow that auch an enact
ment is without merit, constitutional
or otherwise. Patriotism in this
country is a national heritage. It is
born In the blood and springs eter
nal from the true American breast.
Laws concocted to enforce patriotism
are artificial, the work of cranks and
hence have no standing In court.
McKinley. Is 63; Hobart is A3.
McKinley waa married in 1871;
Hobart was married in 1869. Mc
Kinley was 28 when be married;
Hobart was SS. The candidates upon
no previous ticket nominated bv
either political party in the United
States In recent years, says the New
Tork Sun, have been so often candi
dates for elective office before the
Cople as McKinley and Hobart.
oKialey waa first a candidate in
1968 when elected prosecuting attor
ney of Stark county. Ohio, and be
ginning in 1876, he was continuously
a candidate tor congress in the Can
ton district, and alwave successful.
He was defeated in 1890. and was
elected governor of Ohio in 1891,
and re-elected in 1893. Hobart be
gan his political career as a candi
date for elective office more than
twenty years ago as a republican
nominee tot the Trenton senate in
Tatterson. Afterward he was sent
to the New Jersey senate from his
district, and la the several contests
la which he was engaged he was gen
erally successful. President Harri
son when nominated In 1888 had
been a candidate for elective office
but once previously (for governor of
Indiana, in 1876); had been de

conspicuous perhaps from the fact that
auctions on toe uae at mercy never
brought about bis own rain. Almost
every battle in which he waa engaged
might have farniabed an excuse for

footsteps of his old friends ,and com

spite of his many enemies and the fierc
jealousy which he excited, he managed
to seep nis oesa on nis snouiders while
many another, far lea mmpected, fell.
