Chairman Charles Boechenstein of
the state democratic committee has
sent out a circular letter to the mem
bers of the body of which he is the
head. The letter is as follows:
To Democratic Committeemen:
The democratic party In the past has
won splendid victories in every portion
of the length and breadth of the coun
try. It is winning today in Pennsyl
vania, Ohio and Indiana winning
them against tremendous odds. The
democratic party in Illinois has mag
nificent victories before it in future
campaigns, and the time of their reali
zation is contingent only on the atti
tude taken by members of the party
themselves. In Illinois the great de
mand is the democratic ranks is for
Those who claim leadership, no mat
ter whether of great or small degree,
are the ones responsible for results,
and it is for them to say when democ
racy shall triumphantly come into its
own. On the day when democrats set
aside petty differences, obliterate the
momory of past strife, disavow fac
tional feeling, and stand together for
the broad principles in which all be
lieve, no matter of what region or how
severed, then will victory be assured.
This is the goal toward which those
who have the real interests of the
party at heart are striving.
Statements and figures in various
forms have been sent recently to dem
ocrats of the state by interested par
ties, intended to show that the demo
cratic defeat in the state in 1904 was
so overwhelming as to reflect on the
efforts made. These sweeping charges
are an imputation that thousands of
faithful democratic workers township,
county, district and . state have been
untrue to. their trust, and as chairman
of the state committee I feel it is a
matter of justice to the many loyal
democrats of the state who cooperated
in the work of the campaign to present
a few facts for the careful considera
tion of fair-minded democrats.
Good Showing; of lillnol.
Illinois in 1904 gave the republican
nominees 58.77 per cent of the total
vote; the democratic nominees receiv
ed 30.43 per cent. Out or 1C states. In
cluding those of the middle west, sim
ilarly situated, Illinois stands at the
head and cast the highest per cent of
democratic votes of any one of the
sixteen. Here are the figures:

The election of 1904 was one of the
periodic upheavals which carry ali be
fore them. Moreover, it was the rec
ord in that sort of seismic disturbance,
for Missouri, and even Arkansas, were
carried out of line temporarily by the
onslaught. The thousands of good
and true democrats in Illinois who
helped to place their state at the head
of this column, and ahead of states like
Wisconsin and Michigan and even Cal
ifornia and Nebraska, have no reason
to apologize to anyone for the part
they took in the work of keeping the
Center of CampaiKB.
, Let us look further into the facts:
In 1904 Illinois was, next to New York,
the center of the republican campaign.
Headquarters of the national republi
can committee were located in Illinois
and the strongest men of the party
gathered and planned here and money
was supplied in abundance. The na
tional democratic committee had its
headquarters in New York, and not a
dollar was contributed from any
source outside of the state to the cam
paign in Illinois.
Not only that, but disaffected parties
styling themselves "democratic demo
crats," established national headquar
ters in Illinois and flooded .this and ad
joining states with literature. The
"Anti-Parker Democratic ' National
League." so-called,' located In Chicago,
sent out thousands of letters appealing
to democrats to lielp defeat the demo
cratic nominees.' With the letters were
blank forms oa which it was urged that
"Please fill in the names of demo
cratic voters in your vicinity whom
you believe are doubtful as to support
ing Parker and Davis.
Following these in rapid succession
were incendiary circulars reviling the
action of the democratic national con
vention. The league was officered by
men who claimed to be democrats, and
democratic democrats of Illinois, so
called, gave countenance to the league.
These were some of the conditions
democratic committeemen had to con
I.-Kht on Iterrnt Move.
Recently a movement has been start
ed by some who feel themselves ag
grieved, to make a fight over past com
, tentions and to renew factional differ
ences.' The purpose is stated to be the
purification of the party, and the Hgh.
ihg of wrongs that are charged. to the
state and national conventions. 'There
is great danger that this movement
will result rather to aid the republicans
than 'to. help the. democrats. ' There
were undoubtedly incidents in the con
ventions of, the post with which, some
of those present found' it hard., to rec
oncile themselyes. But. this is true at
any time and in any party, ". Were there
no differences of opinion there would
be no need of conventions, but these
differences '. cannot be remedied by
bickerings and appeals to prejudice.
The. movement -is further said to. be
in the interest of fair play and. ma
jority rule, TcTthJsi, would say;, Th?
state committee, and in. the. statement
I belleve. I ..voice, the sentiments, of a
great majority of the members, of the,
committee, Is not interested in any fac
tion or combination. It earnestly de
sires the success of the party and will
accord equal recognition to all who are
fair in their dealings. As chairman of
the state committee I am beholden to
no candidate, past or prospective, and
I am not concerned in the plans of any
faction or clique. All democrats may
be assured that every man who comes
into the next state convention properly
accredited will have impartial recogni
tion, and this applies equally that no
faction shall have any improper advan
tage over any individual delegate to
Eery party is blessed with a collec
tion of disappointed office seekers,
camp followers and others who have
become soured through the failure of
some plan for personal gain or aggran
dizement. These generally harry the
outskirts and are ever ready to join
in any effort to create confusion in the
ranks and thwart the march of a stead
fast purpose. No man should be placed
at the head of an organization who en
ters upon his task with the purpose of
punishing others within the ranks who
have chanced to differ with him. No
man deserves followers who has fought
his own people or offered encourage
ment to the opposition.- Democrats
may well be careful about affiliating
with any factional organization which
afterwards might become, as was the
case in the last campaign, an auxiliary
league of the republicans.
Fight Hack to Hack.
Democrats are good fighters, but
they should fight back to back, not
face to face. It is from internal strife
that the party has suffered, not from
outward assaults. With a united front,
standing four square, democracy is in
vincible, but with bickerings in the
ranks it cannot hope to succeed. Those
who have borne the brunt of . battle
have no reason to become involved in
petty wrangling. ' Few things are gain
ed without a sacrifice on the part of
someone. Iet every democrat fall into
line, forgetful of self, free 1 from fac
tional entanglements, mindful of party,
Then there will be a different story to
tell on the morning after election, and
in victory it Is easy " to forget the
bruises of the past.

Depraved Blood Causes Pimples ana

Make New Blood and
"I abused my stomach, my blood got
out of order, and then my face broke
out with pimples and boils," says T. E.
Robertson of 197 Addison street, Wash-
gton. Pa. "This was over two years
ago. My stomacn was m uau suapc.
After eating I would have to rest
awhile or I would suffer the most se
vere pains in my stomach. On arising
I would. often be so dizzy that I could
hardly stand up. The slightest exer
tion would start my back aching so
that I often had. to sit down and rest
awhile. At times I experienced a pain
around the heart which alarmed me,
but which I suppose - came from my
"I began to break out on the face
with pimples and later with boils which
confined me to the house a week or
more at a time.
"One day I saw Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People advertised in a
pamphlet which was left at the door,
and I thought I would give them a
trial. I took several boxes of the pills
before all the pimples and boils left
me, but I am now glad to say that my
blood is good. I do not have any erup
tions and I no longer have the head
and stomach troubles I have describ
ed. I am very grateful for what Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills have done for me
and I have recommended them and
always will- advise those who are suf
fering from bad blood or stomach trou
ble to ty them."
Dr. Williams Pink Pills are guaran
teed to be safe and harmless to the
most delicate constitution. They con
tain no morphine, opiate, narcotic, nor
anything to cause a drug habit, They
do not act on the bowels, but they
actually make new blood and strength
en the nerves. If you want good health
you, must have good blood. Bad blood
is. the; root of . all common diseases,

indigestion, debility, genera weakness,
paralysis, locomotor ataxia and. the spe
