A VETERAN'S VIEW.
What a Ileal Soldier Thinks of the
Way Ollices Are Being
Interview ith Prolnfl IIHsoIh
it Who II Vltteit iVorla Many
SrRiNUFiKi.P. 111., July 2tV-On an
Illinois Central train yesterday a corres
pondent met a gentleman who bits lately
been visiting friends in IVoria. lie is
one of the foremost member of the
Uranil Army of the Kcnnblic in this state,
anil is vlioquitc promfuent in republican
polities in Ins section. lie brings a re
markable bi 1 of lml faith and general
otissedness anting the republican party,
with which he "K-clnred with emphasi.s he
would no longer atliliale.
"I was iri,4lie war from the opening to
the finish, and have received several
woundsliat would entitle me to a pen
sion tirht would support me,"he said, "but
I can earn my living and I will do it. It is
the loafer, the nuttier and the skulkers
in the rear who are doing all this fighting
in the ncwpperH, and they hive done
more to bring the organization into dis
repute than anything else. They bowl
for a pauper pension, cry aloud for the
offices, and in some localities as with one
voice they seem to he demanding the
earth. I am not that kind of a veter-
an, and I know many others like me. I
confess that I am disappointed in the
way President ll irrison and Gov. Fifer
are treating the veterans, and yes. I will
add the Degrees, because that party has
always in the past claimed to be the es
pecial champion of both these classes. I
never asked an ohVe in my life; I don't
need one, and I have too often seen the
result of holding political office to cire
for its allurements. Hut whut I want to
say is that the president, the governor,
and, so far as I know, all the republican
congressmen, have been false to their
pledges to the old soldier. Tanner is
scooping out the people's money by the
ton to fellows, many of whom I am sure
are not entitled to a cent cf government
aid. The veteran who. was where the
bullets sang a requiem over the hastily
made grave is getting nothing. He is not
inU'liigent enough to hold a political oN
nee. Kcany, i expected some recount
lion of the soldier from the men I have
mentioned. I am disappointed, a
many another veteran.
"Take Illinois and I am surprised that
the Democratic papers have not showed
up the record to date. The republican
party is to blame for electing C'ulloin an
Farwell I nilcd States senators, for elect
ing Cannon and Smith, and Ab Taylor
and Mason, Hill, Hill. Tavsnn and Gest
to the lower house. They wouldn't nom
mate a Lnion soldier he isn't good
enough. And how have the otiie.es l-ecn
distributed in Illinois? Carr. of Gules
burg, formerly postmaster there, who
would not appoint a soldier, a soldier's
widow or orphan to anything, gets
second-class appointment in the consular
servii", I ts lieve to Denmark. Gen. Mar
tin, wlio wanted to be railroad ami ware
house commissioner, is thrown over for a
oreryed preacher from an Egyptian
jungle. Starr and llogan are appointed
collectors; the one remained at home and
made a fortune and the other was a tele
graph operator in the army. Wilcox, the
other collector appointed, never smelt
hostile powder. Neither did Hatch, the
United States marshal, nor the post
masters in a majority of the first-class
offices tilled by the present administra
tion. Will Clark, of Peoria, was an ap
plicant for the canal commissioncrsbip.
and was nackeit Iy a tremendous in
Ouence. G. A. K. and citizens. A fellow
oy iiie name ot rtnively, of Canton, got
it. Starr was opposed for the office of
collector in the IVoria distiict by Col
Ike Taylor, a veteran of many battles.
And Cullom could have recommended
capable soldiers for every place, if he had
"Hegarding Starr's appointment, I have
just left Peoria and I never saw a party
in such a uemoralizeu condition as is tin
republican party in that district. Starr
has had to publish a card declaring he
would consider applicants on their merits,
and their Hiatus in "the bite friendly con
test for the collectorship' would be for
gotten. In ibis connection it might be
wen 10 quote me. exaei words Ot our
senior senator. iMillom, when be intro
duced David S. Hrown to President Har
rison in asningion. lirown was a
three months' man in the war and never
rose above private, but is commander of
the Peoria post, and is to have a place
under stair, haid I'liliom:
"Mr. President Allow me to introduce
to you Col. Brown, commander of the
Grand Army post of Peoria, one of the
largest in the state, mustering over 5tH
members. It Las been reported bv Mr.
Starr's opponents that the old soldiers
are not in favor of his appointment as
collector for the Peoria district. Col
Brown is lu re to speak for the Grand
Arinv post of Peoria on that point.
"In substance Hrown declared that the
appointment of Starr would be perfectly
satisfactory to the old soldier element;
that he possessed their confidence as fully
as one of their own number. Col. (?)
Brown spoke for the short term men, the
KK) (layers and three-month's men, the
men in favor of bilking the government
for all they can, and for those
who want office. I deny that he spoke
for the real soldiers, the men who
fought at the front for four years.
An i want to repeat that I never
asked an off.ee and would not take one
under any circumstances. I have al
ways voted the republican ticket I have
been too radical a republican; that is
what is the matter with too many of tha
veterans. The leaders of the party feel
as if they own us. and can vote us any
how. 1 predict that they will discover
their mistake next year. I am not
a Texas steer that can be driven. Iam
my own master, and I will vote hereafter
for men. and will ulways give the man
who fought for his country the prefer
ence. I feel that we have been shame
fully treated by the president, by the
governor, and by the congressmen, so
far as I know of their appointments
And so far as I can influence them the
old soldiers will remember the treatment
at the next election."
"How has Department Commander
"Gen. Martin is chairman of the re
publican stale committee, and I was not
for him for commander for that reason.
But be has taken no part in recommend
ing anybody for office under this admin
istration, state or national. I know this
to be a fact. He has been very conser
vative and honest. Politics and G. A.
It. business have been completely di
vorced under bis administration. But
many of the post commanders have not
been so discreet, and there is liable to be
a merry war in the next state encamp,
ment. There may be some interesting
points raised in the national encampment
also. There has been just one soldier of
distiction given an office in this state
Map Jim Connolly. And there is no
evading of responsibility. It rests with
Fifer. who made such big pretensions
and pledges of love for the soldier when
he needed their votes: with Cullom and
Farwell. who- learned all they know of
war in Memorial hall in Springfield and
out of books, and with republican con
gressmen, a majority of whom, I am
sorry to say, have had the same material
experience as the senators."
"How will the disaffected veterans
treat Gen. Palmer if he is nominated for
senator next year?"
"That is a hard question. They do
not like,he idea of him taking his dis
charge from the local post. If it be be
tween him and Farwell I have no doubt
many of them will vote the democratic
y "How do .you regard Cleveland and
"I believe that Cleveland was imposed
upon. I think that nine-tenths of the
private pensions bills he vetoed were in
troduced for no other purpose than to
couft a veto. Had he signed them he
would have been scored more severely
than if he had vetoed them. He was
bound to he damned anyhow. Good
men will endorse every one of bis vetoes
of private iiension bills. And I am op
posed to the paufier pension. Every sol
dier who received wounds in the service
that incapacitate him from earning a
living, should receive a pension that
would keep the wolf from the door, and
it ought to end there.
"You are a newspaper man and I
suppose will publish this. If anything I
have said is denied, I want the privilege
of replying, and I will do it over my
own signature. All real veteran soldiers
will endorse all 1 have said, if they know
fk;iiti; against fate.

Zl'MA. July 2rS About three years ago
iunn township yoteil upon and defeated
the proposition to change the place fo
holding election from Zuma Center to
Joslin. When Mr. William Witeside was
elected supervisor he recommended to the
hoard of supervisors to hold the election
of Zuma at Joslin, which is one half mile
from the east end of the township, while
two-thirds of the voters reside in the
west end. He cared nothing for the
elirect voice of the people, but had a two
fold object in view; first, it would be i
financial benefit to his son who owns the
building in which the election is held
second, he thought lie would place it at
as griTit a distance as possible, fully
eleven mites nv the circuitous route, so
as to deprive the democratic stronghold.
Which is on the westtnd of the towuship
of attending the elections.
Zuma used to be overwhelmingly re
publican as recent as eight years ago.
since which time the democrats have been
reducing this majority, until last fall
Harrison carried the town by seven. At
our town election in April last the demo
crats elected part of their licket,while the
republicans that were elected had majori
ties of one to three. This gradual de
crease in the republican voters has had
a tendency to stir up their anger, and as
a consequence they will resort to
any tactics, fair or unfair, to defeat the
opposing party. Now we come to our
recent election of state's attorney, about
which so much has hecu said and writ
ten. I armers were very busy in the hay
field on that day. and they waited until
evening to vote, so they could retcrn
home at night, especially those of the

says: " I he polls were closed in an order
ly ana lawiui manner, and at ttie ap
pointed time, we wish to take excep
tion to this statement. Mr. Whiteside
closed the polls twentv-eitrht minims
after he gave notice at 6:30 o'clock that
the polls would be closed in half an hour,
and furthermore, he closed the polls at
6:54 o'clock, according to his son's. Wra
VV hiteside, Jr., standard time that he had
obtained during the day for the express
purpose of closing the pedis at the proper
time. Mr. Whiteside, Jr., is William
t'ayne's deputy committeeman for the
town and recently appointed postmaster
or Joslin. W bat stronger proof eloes Mr
Osborn want than this republican
bearing such credentials? Mr. William
Whiteside, Jr., further says that these
democrats who were denied the right to
vote had plenty of time to cast their bal
lots if they were allowed to do so. and lie
says so still. But by depriving them of
this right. Sturgeon carried the town by
one plurality, whereas Lewis should have
carried it bv three and the town would
turn into the democratic column.

was standing on the outside of the build
ing watching those parties that were ap
proaching in their vehicles for a distance
of more than half a mile, and when they
arrived, knowing them to be staunch
democrats, be makes a direct course to
the company of his associates and the
polls are closed immediately with his
consent at 6:58 o'clock. It Mr. Osborn
wishes to adhere strictlv to the law, why
should this judge, instead of attending
to tus duties, take such an interest in
discerning the political faith of those
democrats? All of this was in Mr. Os
"But Mr. OHborn says that the acts
charged by 'Multum in Parvo' are
equivalent to frauds on the ballot, pun
ishable by line and imprisonment. Such
charges have been freelv made during
the last five years." During the last five
years Zuma has had republican super
visors, wno invariably, wun possitilv a
single exception, have appointed repute
lican grand jurors. So far as Zuma is
concerned, she has given her full quota
to uphold republican rascality if brought
before the grand jury for action. If ull
towns should act the same as Zuma in
their grand jurymen, courts and politics
wou.d be one and the same thing. We
are glad to acknowledge that the probi
unionists ana noerui repuniicans join
hands with the democrats and denounce
such unscrupulous methods adopted by
inese judges or elections.
Hound to fet There.
The Davenport papers are disposed to
enviously sneer at the proposition to
unite the cities of Rock Island and Moline
and one of them sarcastically remarks
that Kock Island and Moline would tie
obliged to annex all suburban towns
within a radios of thirty miles to reach
tne size oi Davenport. Thats what
will be done if necessary, and if our pro
hibition neighbors don't look out we'll
turn the course of the great Father of
Waters around through Duck Creek bot
toms and annex Davenport to Rock Isl
and. We are bound to get there and
would not object to letting Davenport
enjoy some of the benefits of a city that
is known, no matter whether we will call
ourselves "Rock Line" or "Mole Island."
