young New Yorker on the Hanna
ticket ia best shown by the following
account of what transpired on the
night before the nomination. The
description is furnished by the corres
pondent of the republican Chicago
Tribune and must be presumed not
to be prejudiced against the success
of the Philadelphia ticket. Mr.
Ranna was in bis headquarters at the
Hotel Walton arranging the few re
maining details of his convention.
He had only to settle the vice presi
dential contest, so-called, and his
work would be linished. He sent for
Mr. Dolliver, of Iowa, and crushed
that interesting young man's boom
between the thumb and forefinger of
his doughty right hand. Mr. Dolli
ver went away properly subdued and
abandoned all his ambitions to hold a
place on the ticket. Hanna then sent
for Gov. Roosevelt, who of course
came proas ptly at call. What hap
pened then is thus described by the
"And now,1 said Senator Hanna,
"will you. Gov. Roosevelt, accept the
nomination for vice president?"
"At your hands and under the cir
cumstances I will accept it." replied
Gov. Roosevelt. "I am always ready
to act at the behest of the party, but
not at the behest of an individual."
Senator Hanna then addressed Cov.
Roosevelt in the most friendly terms,
the olive branch thus extended was
accepted by Gov. Roosevelt, and the
two shook hands in the most friendly
manner. Senator Hanna then asked
Gov. Roosevelt to name the man who
should present his name to the con
vention, and the governor graciously
told Mr. Hanna that the honor of
making the selection should be his.
So ends the political career of an in.
teresting and at one time supposedly
forceful "independent in politics."
Mark Hanna has swallowed Roosevelt,
independence and all, and the ticket is
a Hanna ticket at both ends. ,,
That Hanna Treat Flank.
The following is the so-called trust
plank framed at the republican con
vention in Philadelphia:
"We recognize the necessity and
propriety of the honest cooperation of
capital to meet new business condi
tions and especially to extend our rap
idly increasing foreign trade, but we
condemn all conspiracies and combin
ations intended to restrict business, to
create monopolies and to limit pro
duction or to control prices, and favor
such legislation as will effectually re
strain and prevent all such abuses,
protect and promote competition and
secure the rights of producers, labor
ers and all who are engaged in indus
try and commerce."
'With this plank the republican cam
paign managers intend to play upon
the credulity of the American people.
The full extent of the hypocrisv in
volved in this attempt to mock the in
telligence of the voters with insincere
declarations can only be realized when
we remember Marcus Aurelius Hanna,
LL. D., wrote the important planks of
the platform, that he owns and con
trols the republican party turouen its
machinery, and that this same Hanna
has made the following public decla
rations regarding trusts:
"The Kuglish government is as good
"Large combinations of capital
have existed for 200 years in Eng
land." "The great commercial success of
England has been due to those same
"Those combinations known as
trusts are not a political question at
all. They are simply and purely a
"The trusts have the best men in
the country at their head. I believe
in their organization."
"I think the trusts will result ben
eficially to the men who work in the
"What harm can the trusts do the
people of this country?"
"The formation of trusts is a step
"They are not intended to increase
profits, but to reduce cost,"
"Trusts! There's no such thing."
"The story that I have defended
trusts in any of rav speeches is abso
"The combination of corporations
is simply the evolution of business;
don't know of a trust in the United
"I say they are not truits. If they
are. prove it."
There is not a trust left in the
United States. There never were more
than about a half-dozen, and they all
have been dissolved and converted
into large corporations."
Comment is unnecesary. The in
telligence of the American people will
brand the declaration of the Hanna
platform on trusts.

I The Democratic Nominees.
Samuel Alschuler, of Aurora, the
democratic nominee for governor of
Illinois, was born in Chicago on Nov.
20, 1859. Two years later the family
moved to Aurora, where his father,
Jacob Alsshnler, engaged in the mer
cantile business, and Later in the real
estate business. Mr. Alschuler re
ceived his education in the public
schools and the East Aurora high
school. He studied law and .was ad
mitted to the bar in 1680. He prac
ticed alone for 10 years, then formed
a partnership with John C. Murphy
in January, 1890. Mr. Murphy, who
was admitted to the bar in 1832. was
United States attorney for the terri
tory of North Dakota from 1884 to
1890. Later he returned to Aurora
and subsequently was elected mayor.
Jacob Alschuler. father of the gub
ernatorial candidate, died four years
ago. Mr. Alschuler is unmarried and
lives with his mother, an unmarried
sister and two brothers, Benjamin P.
and George W. Alschuler. They have
one of the most beautiful homes in
Aurora. Their home life is peculiar
ly happy. Mr. Alschuler is of a kind
ly disposition and of a genial, social
character. He is a Mason, a Knight
of Pythias, a Woodman, and a mem
ber of the Iroquois club, of Chicago,
and the City club, of Aurora.
Mr. Alschuler is an exceedingly ap
proachable man and has the happy
faculty of making friends at all times.
He is a ready talker, but liot of the
brilliant, flashy order. -He is a plod
der and student rather than a
meteoric campaign orator. During
the two terms Mr. Alschuler served
in the general assembly of Illinois
he made an enviable record. He
studied every proposition of any note
that was pending in the general as
sembly. His was one of the master
ful minds on the judiciary and he
gave every proposition the same
study that be would as if he was pre
paring the matter for a trial in court.
He showed tact in a great many oc
casions, when he was successful in
killing off inimical legislation. He
was always with his party on party
questions, but aside from proposi
tions of this character he could al
ways be found endeavoring to ascer
tain the right involved with a view of
acting. Accordingly bis time in
Springfield was given up almost en
tirely to a careful study of the legis
lation before the general assembly.
Mr. Alschuler was a recognized
leader in the first session, and during
the session of the legislature of a year
ago his word carried with it more
weight than anv other man on his
side of the house. His opinions were
always listened to. He was not given
to speech making except when the
exigencies of the case demanded, and
he never fought but that he made
himself felt. lie had a host of friends
among the republicans as well as the
The Chicago Tribune has the follow
Ids' "Mr. Alschuler is a man ot a
strong .character. He is best known
and most popular nearest home. In
his law practice he is absolutely free
from anything that savors ol trick-'
erv. He is fair and open, and his
known integrity gives him great pow
er before court and jurv. This is best
demonstrated by the stand he took in
the legislature on the Allen law and
kindred measures. Mr. Alschuler
speaks German fluently. In all things
he is an American, lie has always
been active in democratic politics, and
in 1892 he ran for congress in the
Eighth district, and, although defeated.
for this is one of the strongest repub
lican districts in the United Mates
ran far ahead of his ticket. In 1896
he was elected to the legislature and
was reelected in 1898. la July. 1893,
Gov. Altgeld appointed him member
of the court of claims. He is a Jef
fersonian democrat, but is liberal and
broad-minded in his political views.1
Elmer A. Perry, of Mount Sterling
nominee for lieutenant governor, was
born in Brown county in 1861. He
was educated in the district school
and at the Valparaiso, Ind., normal.
In 1881 he left school temporarily and
taught a couple of years, later return
ing to Valparaiso, where he graduated
in 1884 with honors. He read Law
with J. M. Rigg. of Winchester, and
in 1880 was admitted to the bar.
Three years later he became city at
torney, and in 1894 was elected to the
general assembly. He was reelected
in 1896 and again in 1898. He voted
against the Allen bill. He is a Mason
and a Knight of Pythias. Like the
candidate for governor. Mr. Perry is
James F. O'Donnell, of Blooming
ton, nominee for secretary of state,
was born in Dubuque, Iowa, in 1845.
His parents came from the County
Donegal, Ireland. When he was 2
years old his family removed to
Bloommgton. He was educated in
the public schools of Bloomington.
In 1S82 he became a reporter on the
Bloomington Bulletin. In 1691 he
became the partner of Theodore A.
Bradley, proprietor of the Bulletin,
and since has been its business mana
ger. In 1695 he was elected by the
democrats to the legislature and
served two terms, declining a third
term. He has taken an active part in
every campaign since 1888. touring
the state in 1896. He is unmarried
and lives with his father.
Millard F. Dunlap, of Jacksonville,
nominee for state treasurer, was born
in Morgan coanty, 111., in 1860. Hit
boyhood was passed on his father's
farm near Jacksonville, and he was
educated in the schools of that city.
In 1890 he founded the banking house
