N. .tio.lv disputes the leadership of
Gen. John M. Palmer to the democracy
of Illinois His meteoric snd hrillisnl
campaign of 1888 wss an event In the an
naN of American politics. Single -handed
and alone he stormed ihe citadel
of republicanism and made It totter on its
throne. The campaign of thst year
earned for the veteran lesdcr the title of
the "Olsdstonr of Ihe West." snd that It
Is well applied no one will deny. The
prevailing far that Oen . Palmer would
overtai bis strength when he anounced
bis determination to stump the state from
one end to tbe other, grew Into an ad
miration snd confidence as tbe campaign
advanced until at the close Palmer was
the idol of the democratic heart
Mr .1. L. Pickering, one of the bright-,
est newspaper men in tbe state, snd who
attended Oen. Palmer on bis msrch in
1888 as the special representative of tbe
Chicago Iltrnld, has lately interviewed
the general at Springfield. Mr. Picker
ing write an interesting description of
Mr. Palmer's domestic and professional
life, and many incidents connected with
bis eventful public career. In regsrtl la
tbe political outlook in Illinois, Oen.
Palmer said, in reply to tbe question:
"Pecisely as it is in tbe entire west and
northwest. The democrats will succeed
in Illinois, not so much on account of
tbeir inherent strength as from the dis
appointment of tbe people because of the
failure of tbe republican psrty to fulfil,
the pledges they made in tbe last cam
paign. Tbe truth is tbe republican party
undertook more than It was possible to
aocomp'tsb by any government. Tbe re
publican m are divided; the old traditional
issues Ml worn out, and tbe people don't
me.au to vote with a party that holds up
a Vision of the past and labels it 'Party
Principles ' In order to carry this state
it ia only necessary for the democratic
party to tie active and vigoious, and show
that it is alive snd keeping psce with tbe
times In everything that i new and pro
gressive. Tbe principal MM In this
state will be taxation- federal taxation.
In some places local issues will predomi
nate they always do. There is some
dissatisfaction in German Lutheran and
German Catholic communities with tbe
enforcement of tbe compulsory educa
tional law. The rcpuhliran leaders will
attempt to get rid of tbe tariff Issue dur
ing this session of congress. They have
got to par: with the vote of the sgricul
tnral states or wiib tbe votes of the man
ufacturing states, snd from tbe character
of the men controlling tbe bouse of re
presentatives it is tbeir obvious intention
to make the experiment of keeping in line
with the sabsidy states and ignore those
devoted principally to agriculture and its
interest. They are also wearing out the
soldier vote The political soldier vote
MM to the republican party, and the
better clsss of veterans are assuming an
independent position and gradually sever
ing tbe bond that binds them to tbe re
publican party. My opinion is that all
this independent soldier element will yet
be found with the democratic party. The
soldiers of the country ate wearied of this
perpetual clamor and this selling of their
patriotism for money It is possible that
even the negro vote will disintegrate,
though I confess that the possibility Is a
"General, do you Iwlieve that the far
mem will adopt any independent course
in politics this year in this state?"
"That is a itie,tlon that ran better be
answered lu the next month or two. I
do not think the Farmers' Mutual Bene
fit association, which baa tbe most
sirength in tin- atate, or any farmers' or
labor movement is necessarily In the m
tereat of Ihe democratic party. The feel
ing in favor of these movements l re.illy
a protest against the republican party as
the party in power If there are any
such movements incubsting, they mean
that the promoters will not vote the re
publican ticket this year."
"But will thy vote with the demo
cratsT" "If the democrats speak out frankly
and rondacl the campaign on a plan of
candor snd honesty aud snow a disposi
tion to fulfill what they promise that vote
will come in us in a very large measure
There i- one very gratifying sign in the
political horizon this year, ami that is
that men no longer beattate to unite with
the democratic arty on account of old
prejudice The voung men are begin
ning to feel thai party politirs must have
some meaning, and they are inclined
to support the psrty name that advo
cates the principles that more nearly
conclde with their own I am counting
on a great deal of useful help from tbe
young men who think for themselves and
on whom the glories and prejudices of
the past are were matters of history
They are beginning to study tbe present
and the luture, and are wearied of the
despotism of the republican leaders, who
give them no hope for the future
"If the allied senatorial power organ
izes war on the president of the United
Htates and I am inclined to think they
will that hostile act will go far towards
destroying the Illusion of the republican
party name, and that is all fiat has in
duced many men to vote their ticket for
years. We can hope for nothing better
than that Cullom and Fsrwell will open
war on Mr. Harrison, which, by the way,
I don't believe they have the courage to
do, for the president today, within the
exercise of his constitutional functions,
is much stronger than any senatorial
combination Here in Illinois a war on
the president by tbe two senators will
compel tbe republican party to go before
the people this year with a senatorial
candidate, or go into liquidation."
"What are tbe prospects for the demo
cratic parly in this state next campaign?"
"I have paid no attention to tbe de
tails of tbe political changes, but I am
very well satisfied with tbe appearance
of things, because I have met no demo
crat that is not ready and anxious for the
next contest he is eager for the cam
paign to open. And I know of no ri
valry among the democratic politicians.
Id fact, I never saw the party in better
trim for a fight to a finish than is the
democratic party In this state at this

"I am not prepared to give an opinion
on that matter, for I don't know what
they are doing. The general demands of
the two classes mentioned include much
that is reasonable. There are visionary
men and demagogues among them who ask
for impracticable things, but a full dis
cussion will bring them out. I never!
knew any body of men to fall who de
MM relief from ills that could be rem
edied by legislation. This farmers' move
ment that jou mention, and the possibili
ty of a general combination of the pro
ducing elements of the country, is a
phase that will force itself on the politi
cians' attention. It is to be expected
that these elements will formulate some
reasonable demands, for no organization
can exist on mere abstractions. They
will be compelled to limit their demands
to an object that can be accomplished by
political means, and with due regard to
all the ether Interests in tbe country. At
present 1 see in this movement nothing
but a spirit of revolt against republican
domination, which, of itself, is a sign of
political change, and in such a condition
of things a party like the democratic,
wbich has definite aims and purposes,
must attract a large part of these dis
"Will the prohibitionists cut much of
a figure this?"
"No; they will gain no strength for
years to come, and will never succeed as
a national par'y. Any amendment to
ihe federal constitution intended to pro
hibit tbe manufacture and sale of intoxi
cating liquors must be in form something
like this: And the general picked up a
book, containing the constitution of tbe
United States, and read an adaptation of
ibe fifteenth amendment, as follows:
"Tbe manufacture and sale of intt.xis
eating liquors in the United Staths or any
territory thereof is hereby p obibited and
congress shall bsve power to enforce tilts
article by appropriate legislation."
"Thus it will be seen," he continued,
"it would be a complete alteration in the
whole system of government established
by tbe federal constitution and break
down all tbe barriers between tbe now
separate police powers of tbe federal and
state governments. The prohibition of
tbe sale or use of intoxicating liquors by
law is one of peculiar difflcu ty, as will be
noticed by an examination of the meth
ods employed in states where prohibitory
laws have already been enacted. It in
volves in such states a large increase in
the police force, with such necessary in
crease of the powers of the courts and the
police as trench very closely upon public
and individual rights. Tbe federal po
lice, which, if prohibitory laws were
adopted by the federal government would
lie necessary, would derive its authority,
not from tbe people, but from an ap
pointing power wholly irresponsible to
the people. Such police fore, must
likewise be clothed with very extensive
powers, which will include the search of
bouses where contraband liquors might
be supposed to be kept for use or sale.
Federal prohibitory laws would require
tbe creation of petty courts with ample
powers, also deriving tbeir authority from
an appointing power other than the peo
pie, and then would require the extend
ing to each tbe police jurisdiction of the
federal government, and so interfere with
tbe geueral police powers of tbe state,
wbich arc so difficult of definition that
constant confusion would follow. It is
an axiom in politics that no two govern
ments can possess complete juristiction
over tbe same subject, to be exercised at
the same time. According to tbe federal
constitution, in all cases where tbe just
authority of tbe federal government is
brought in conflict with authority claimed
under the states, that claimed under the
states must yield, so tbat it may be easily
supposed that the constitutional amend
ment suggested would substantially trans
fer to the government of the United
States the supervision of the entire police
authority of the states, and would lead to
the almost entire subversion of popular
government as it now exists in the states.
For these and mauy other reasonB, I am
unalterably opposed to any amendment
o( tbe federal constitution wbich would
prohibit tbe manufacture, tbe Importa
tion, tbe sale or use of liquor in the states,
and give to tbe federal government such
extensive powers over the internal affairs
of the states as the enforcement of such
laws would require. It seems to be
hardly necessary to go further and con
sider what congress may or ought to do
under Its existing power to regulate com
merce with foreign nations and between
the states or to inquire whether its pow
ers In these respects might be advanta
geously enlarged. It will be time enough
to consider these questions when they are
presented to the public in some practical
form. With me it is a cardinal political
theory 'that power should be kept with
tbe people io all cases to he exercised by
themselves whenever possible.' for with
all the faults that attend a strictly popu
lar government I better system has yet

Davenport' Much Hot.lrd Pavement
la nt What It Wast Thoo lit to be,
ami Hock lolaad'o lo Son Risst'u
A dim remembrance no dont t lingers in
tbe minds of many, of how a few months
ago Davenport, inspire 1 by th enterprise
of Rock Island embarked in he paving
business to the extent of thiee blocks.
The papers over there contaimd frequent
assurances which were thrown )ut in part
as a means of consolation of bow that
city would profit by Rock Island's lead,
and how much superior the vork there
would be to that previously d ne in this
city. With a view of carryit g out this
determination to excel, the city invested
lavishly In a huge steam roller and went
into lu undertaking with a vim. But
alas for the folly of human i ride when
backed solely by haughty am titioc that
has its birth in rivalry and s desire to
overdo. Behold now what the Tinw has
to say of that wonderful paverat nt:
It Is noticeable that tbe pacing lately
finished on the north corner of Third and
Perry Is In a sinking and d lapidated
condition, and soon there will be a
large nole at tbe point mentioned, un
less it is soon repaired. Mderman
Smith, chairman of the pav ng com-,
mittee, might call the str;et com
missioner's attention to it to the end tbat
repairs may be begun at once. In this
connection it might well be aid that
Jumbo, with all its rolling weif ut, failed
to sufficiently settle the soil at tl is partic
ular point to prevent so early a sinking
of the work so recently completed.
But Davenport saw tbe err. i of its
ways some time ago to an extent tbat it
was not only wi ling to profit by Rock Isl
and's method in an entirely diffirent way
from tbat with which it first surfed out,
but in order tbat it might mort closely
adopt the plan pursued here. It t its sec
ond contract to the firm that put down
this city's pavement. Atkinson & Oloff .

At the Theatre.
One of the largest audiences of tbe
season witnessed tbe presentation by Miss
Kate Emmett and company at larper'e
theatre Saturday night of "The Vaifs of
New York." The drama is entertaining
and the cast strong all the way tbrougb,
especially so as to the comedy part of
"Hans" as played by Mr. G. W. Thomp
son and the juvsnile character of little
La Petite Llllle. It afforded mat y great
pleasure to see Mr Seth M . Cra le back
on the stage and be played tbe manly
character of "Harry Jones" to perfection.
i Mies Emmett dresses the chars -ter of
"Willie Rufus" the news boy an I boot
black nicely, except tbat she it apt to
go too far into extremes as to mar
affecting scenes and make them
appear ridiculous and uni antral,
more particularly should there be more
restraint on ber part in tbe cou t room
scene. Her conduct there is not at all
I natural, even for an Ignorant. mUchiev-
ous newsboy, nor is It funny. The
scenic effects were very attractive as far
as they went, and the fire scene wis first

great laughing success, "Keep It Dark,"
will be presented, iutroducing the come
dians, W. T. Bryant and J J. IJuinlan
The Chicago Herald says:
"Keep It Dark," which began a week's
engagement at tbe People's last nl'ht, is
one of those things gotten up for t o oth
er purpose than that of making one
laugh. It Is a succession of lighly
amusing scenes, interspersed with songs
and dances, and treats of tbe troub es in
to which three susceptible individuals
got themselves while seeking the h .ml of
an actress. It is capitally given by an
excellent company, the musical feitures
being especially enjoyable.
