THE HOOK I6LAKJU ABGUB; TUEBDAY, AUGUST 23, 1139.
THE DAILY AllGUS
JOHN W. POTTER.
Tukrksdat, Acouct 20, 1889.
Thc fact that James E. Campbell, tbe
prospective democratic governor of Ohio,
voluntarily gave up Lis pension, makes
him a marked man. There are said to
be only two or three similar cases on re
cord. Mr. Campbell gave up his pension
in 1875, immediately after passing the
uedical examination for life insurance,
lie said nothing about it to anyone,
however, and five or six Tears later.when
he became a candidate for congress, one
of the Issues of the day mas tbe extrav
agance of the republicans spending
money for pensions. Mr. Campbell's op
ponent thought he saw an oportun
Ity to make a point. Bo In his
speeches he dwelt in a very mean way on
tbe alleged fart that Campbell himself
was a pensioner, lie repeated his state
ment for several days without meeting
with contradiction, and then CamplxH's
friends puHistird the whole story about
his having given up his pension. Camp
bell was eltTtrd on the strength of it
Stlll. at flrxt a great many doubted.
"Investigate the record," they said, "ami
yot will find that Campbell's pension was
tasen (mm him for good and sufficient
reasons." Tbe record was Investigated,
but It only confirmed tbe statement of
Campbell's friends that he gave up his
pension of his own accord.

There must come a time, even in tbe
course of human events, when the man
who is governed will ask the government
to consider his personal condition, says
the Chicago Herald. If he have been
ditrging coal all his life, and find himself
naked and starving, he ill turn to his
government, and demnnd to know what
manner of thing hath tteen wrought.
This question tbe miners of Illinois and
Indiana are now addressing to the Ameri
can government. Because politics has at
last touched tbe question because the
orators are rattling the empty dinner
pails there is indignation among repub
lican commenUtors. The republican
giver of charity is incensed to know that
he has starved the life of a democratic
proselyte. Tbe atrocity of uniting star
vation and politics becomes the text of
many republican sermons.
Yet tbe miners were industrious in a
useful railing. Tbey are starving. They
voted the republican ticket became they
were told they would starve if the taxes
were reduced. The taxes were patrioti
rally maintained and starvation, prompt
in its apparition, is now sweeter to the
industrial stomach. If ever there was a
time when politics ought to appeal to a
man it is when his government, by twen
ty five years of absolute quackery, has
Anally denied him shelter, food, clothing,

by constantly failing to cure with local

A renes was then taken until Si n. in., and
when the delegates reassembled a lengthy re

owing to the suort session of congress after
the last encampment, and the crowded con
dition of business, little in the line of prac
tical results could be ai-complisbed. After
the congressional recess the committee met
in Chicago and proceeded to tbe borne

Dayton, O., Aug. 29. The Democracy ot
Ohio, which has been gathering be re for the
past two or three days, went into state con
vention yesterday- morning at the rink to
select candidates for state officers. The peo
ple of this city, without regard to politics,
have been profuse in courtesies to the dele
gates and visiting politicians, and one of tbe
notable incidents in this Una was the tender
of tbe Garfield club's rooms to tbe committee
on resolutions, the club providing tbe com
mittee with a luncheon also. For tbe twenty-four
hours preceding the tlut-j for opening
the convention tbe usual excitement incident
to gatherings of this character was notice
able at all tbe hotels and public places, where
delegates gathered to discuss probabilities,
"leg" for their favorites and talk about tbe
pree.pects for victory.
Opening the Convention.
Tbe gathering was tbe largest one the
Demos rata ever held in this state. The rink
is capaole of holding several thousand peo
ple, but was not large enough to contain the
thrones that demanded admission, and be
fore Id o'clock, tbe hour of meeting, it was
packed to suff.wation. Dr. Morton called tbe
body to order an.l made an address, in which
be was very vigorous in paying bis respects
to Governor Foraker and eulogized the Democ
racy and ex-President Cleveland, at the men
tion of whos) name tbe convention broke out
in a storm of applause.
Tbe routine committees were promptly ap
pointed and as promptly made their reports,
giving the permanent chairmanship to Hon.
D. M. Harter, of Richland county, and tbe
secretaryship to L. G. Barnard, of Hamilton
county. The one contest from Lucas county
was quickly settled, and Mr. Harter ad
dressed tbe delegates in a long speech cover
ing all tbe issues of the day.
Ileclarmt Ion of Principles.
The committee on resolutions next report
ed, the gist of their report being as follows:
The national platform adopted at St. Louis
lata year ia approved, esecially the tariff
planks: trusts of every form are denounced
and all tariff taxes that enable them to exist
are disapproved of; liberal and equitable pen
sions are demanded for the veterans of the
war of the rebellion: the present national ad
ministration i denounced for violating its
pledges regarding civil service reform; the
present state administration in denounced as
parti!-au, demoralizing and extravagant, and
declared to be a great political machine; For
aker's nomination for a third term is declared
a violation ot all precedent that should be re
buked at the polls: home rule for Ireland is
favored and tbe same is demanded for Ohio.
Campbell Nominated tor Uoveraor.
Tbe report was unanimously adopted and
then came tbe great business of tbe day the
nomination for governor. For this office
three men were named Jamas EL Camp
bell, of Butler; VirgU P. Kline, ot Cuy
ahoga, and Liwrence T. Neat The first
ballot resulted in no choice Kline, 109;
NaL 2a; Campbell, 35; whole number of
votes 7hl. The second ballot gsve Camp
bell, 37 V; Neal, 299, and KUne 93. A mo
tion to make tbe nomination nnanimnds was
carried amid the greatest enthusiasm, the
band meanwhile playing "Tbe Campbel's
Are Coming," and a committee was sent to
notify tbe nominee.
Mr. Campbell's Remarks.
Wben the nominee appeared escorted by
the committee there was a great shout, and
as soon as order was restored Mr. Campbell,
after thanking the convention for the honor
bestowed upon him, said:
The first duty which confronts us Is to dis
cuss and educate the people upon the reform
of the tariff. This biu the chief feature la
federal politics, and our present struggle in
Ohio being the preliminary skirmish to tbe
general battle of l!.', it ia proper that we de
tine our istsition and keep alive the agitation.
We do uot accept the dogma that our prosper
ity is due to an exorbitant tariff, or that the
custom house bas been the predominant
factor of national growth. We believe in a
tariff restricted to the needs of the govern
ment, yet so adjusted as to prevent inequali
ties, afford full compensation to labor, en
courage productive industries and destroy
We intend, upon our return to power, to
revise the tariff in that spirit. We shall do
nothing rash. We shall not destroy, but re
form. Tho Keat of the Ticket.
The ticket was completed as follows:

Jostles and l4ng Trials Criticised, and
a Remedy Proposed Caole Sam Taken
to Task by an Bdltor for Doing Job
Chicago, Aug. 29. A distinguished gath
ering of members of the legal fraternity took
place yesterday in the First Methodist
church audience room, being tbe twelfth
annual mwting of tbe American Bar
association. Among tbe distinguished gen
tlemen present were David Dudley Field,
president, who occupied a seat in the center
of the platform. On his right were Presi
dent Lachner, of tbe state association,
and President Callahan, of tbe Illi
nois Bar association, and on bis left
were ex-Senator Trumbull, and Edward
Otis Hinckley, of Baltimore, who is
secretary of tbe association. Behind tbe
president were Alexander K. Lawton, of
Georgia, ex-minister to Austria and an ex
Confederate general; Thomas J. Semraeos,
the leading lawyer of Louisiana; ex-Senator
J. R. Doolittle, of Wisconsin; J. Dean Ca
ton, ex-chief justice of Illinois; ex-Senator
George J. Wright, of Iowa; United States
Circuit Judge Henry A. Brown, of Detroit;
Judge Meyrick, of Louisiana, and C. C
Bonney, of Chicago. Among the audience
was ex-Mayor Vaux, of Philadelphia, who
enjoys the distinction of being the only
American who ever danced with Queen Vic
toria; Henry Wise Garrett, of Washington
City, and many others.
President Field's Address.
After addresses of welcome by Mr. Lach
ner and Mr. Callahan, which followed Judge
Trumbull's short address. President David,
Dudley Fitdd delivered bis annual address,
which was a masterly effort on the magni
tude and importance of legal science. He
favored annual sessions of the legislatures of
the states, and a limitation of the scope of
legislation. Tbe true place of the lawyer in
an American commonwealth was, he said,
that ot a minister of justice, and be must be
first in a free nation. As to legal ethics Mr.
Field thought a lawyer was bound to serve
all comers, but if be thought that in any
case presented bis service would
be abused for unlawful or unjust
purposes he should withhold it We
have too many lawyers, he thought, and our
criminals are not punished with sufficient
promptness. Iu this connection be referred
to tbe fact that more men are bung by mote
in this country than by due process of law.
Our lawsuits last too long, and be did not
wonder that a cynic should say that the
American lawyers talk more and sjieed less
than any other equal nuiulwr of men known
to history. The remedy for this, he thought,
would be found in codification and bringing
the knowledge of tbe law to the people. He
closed by saying that lawyers "must, of
course, tie true to your clients and to the
court, but you must also give sjmedy justice
to yc ur fellow citizens, more speedy than
you have yet given, and you must give them
a chance to know their laws."
Miscellaneous Proceed ing.
The nomination aud election of candidates
followed the president's address. All tbe
judges of Cook county and prominent mem
bers of tbe bar of Chicago aud the state to
tbe number of fifty-six were elected mem
bers of the association. In the afternoon

on "Judicial Independence," and Walter B.
Hill, of Georgia, read a paper on the "Fed
eral Judicial System." In tbe evening the
members were given a reoeption by the Illi
nois State Bar association at the Union

tition with Job Printers Recreation.
Detroit, Mich., Aug. . In largely in

a newspaper publisher was safer in a south
ern yellow fever district during an epidemic
than in Pennsylvania under tbe present un
just laws. He presented statistics proving
that 9 per cent, of all libel suits are begun
' at tbe instance of shyster lawyers.
The Government Condemned.
A paper by E. A. Snively, of Illinois, on
public printing provoked enthusiastic re
sponse. Mr. Snively took tbe ground that
the natioual government bad no moral right
to enter into competition with job printers in
selling stumped envelopes with return cards
printed tboreon, and a resolution was unani
mously adopted condemning tbe govern
ment's course, and suggesting steps that will
lead to a prompt remedy.
