PALMER AT GIRAIUV
A Big Demonstration in His
What the Grand Old Man Had to May
About the Idvo lannea or the
Lst Siturday was a red -letter day for
the democracy of Oirard, 111. Gen. John
M. Palmer had promised the people he
woolil address thcra, which simple an
noaDceirent was sufficient to attract a
large crow. Several other prominent
gentlemen were present, but G.n. Pal
mer was the hero of the occasion. He
began his speech by saying he was ad
dressing a people anions; whom and their
pioneer fathers he came Bome fifty years
hpo. Today he was addressing them as
the democratic candidate for ttie United
States senate, a position he had been
gi? en, not by a caucus nor by a conven
lion alone, but by the democracy of the
townships of the whole state of Illinois.
The people, he said, are discovering that
they are losing their rights by the pres
ent republican management of affairs. and
it is to help to avert this danger that
they have nominated a candidate for the
United States senate. It is must be ap
parent to all that the republicans propose
to enlarge the federal control of public
affairs at the expense of the liberties of
the people. Precedents of a century
have been ruthlessly overturned by the
present congress, and a despotism has
been established at Washington in the
house of representatives. They iustify
their acts by the pretext that conditions
demand a revolution. The peof.le can
remedy this evil by electing members to
the general assembly and by this means
control of the United States senate can
be obtained- This is now tne people's
best bone. Republican papers sty that
party abounds in great men. Perhaps it
does, but that party will select its candi
date for the senate by a legislative caucus
in a back room, and be will be a man
about whom the people know nothing.
ana nave no voice in choosing. 1 his is
done because he might, if known, be
asked some u n pleas in t questions. The
democratic and independent voters pre
fer that their candidate for this import
ant office shaii be known and his views
understood before he is elected. By the
republican method of selecting senators
the people have no choice in the selec
tion, for republicans have placed this
important office beyond the control
of the people. The republican
politicians have al-to i6en.--ao7
solute control of the.gj 0t the people,
control!; ail'legislation relative to prop
erty and taxation, independent of the
welfare of the people. The powers of
congress are uncontrollable, except you
can control congress by selecting the men
yourselves that you send there. Will vou
doit? If United States senators were
made responsible to the people, you
woul 1 bear from them quite often,
Gen. Palmer then proceeded to ably
and freely discuss the tariff question, tak
ing advanced grounds on the subject. He
showed how, at the Chicago convention
of 1883, the republican party had made
great promises about the tariff, and now
the party was all torn up on the, subject
Mr. McKinley was for reducing the reve
nue by increasing the taxes of the people;
while Mr. Blaine was advocating the
good old democratic doctrine of reel pro
city between nations, and among other
things eays that not a line In the McEin
ley bill would furnish a market for the
western farmer to sell a bushel of wheat
or a pouud of pork. Mr. Blaine cod
demns the bill, but you republicans are
asked to support it. Will you do it?
Gen. Palmer then referred to the annual
ship subsidy of millions which had been
voted by congress. This was nothing
more or less than the people paying ocean
freights on their products to foreign
countries. He said it was now stated on
undoubted authority that the annual ex
penditures of the federal government
amounted to the enormous sum of (450,
000.000 He believed it would be nearer
$500,000,000. Think of this great sum
of money being taken from the pockets of
the people. Neither Senators Cullom or
Farwell protested against this. In 1SSS,
the democrats were contending against
a tariff tax of only 47 per
cent, now the republican congress is try
ing to make it over 51 per cent. Repub
licans were insisting that the friends of a
tariff should reviss (he law. He thought
the F. M. B. A. of Decatur, at a late
meeting, bad made the best suggestion,
when it said that the tariff should be re
vised by its victims. The governor said
that the protective tariff men who burden
us with the tariff taxes were wise enough
to keep the people divided. He strongly
urged his hearers to take care of them
selves, by refusing longer to wear the
collar of any party which would turn
tbem over to the mercies of the tariff
barons. We should also stop eating one
another up for the benefit of the republi
can office-holders' trust. This trust cares
nothing for the people, but proposes to
hold office forever if they can, as the
election bill clearly indicates.
In concluding, the general said that
heretofore the politics of the nation have
been dominated by the two states of New
York and Indiana. Will you stand this
any longer? Hereafter Illinois will be the
third state of the union and she will
dominate the politics of the nation if her
people have the manhood to assert them
selves, refuse to be divided for the bene
fit of the eastern manufacturers. The
great west must get rid of political bond
age to the northeastern manufacturing
states. Western agricultural interests are
dying and will continue to die unless you
cease to be divided and do your duty as
independent and patriotic citizens. Take
your affairs into your own control and
you will preserve your liberties and re
lieve yourselves of unnecessary and bur
Got. Palmer spoke for one hour and
twenty minutes to an immense audience.

points in behalf of the people.

Washington City, July 30. The presi

"The recent attempt to secure a charter
from the state of North Dakota for a lot
tery company, the pending effort to ob
tain from the state of Louisiana a renewal
of the charter of the Louisiana State lot
tery, and the establishment of one or more
lottery companies at Mexican towns near
our border, have served the good purpose
of calling attention to an evil of vast pro
portions. If the baneful effects of these
lotteries were confined to the states that
give the companies corporate powers and
a license to conduct the business, the citl-
sens of other states, beingpowerless to ap
ply legal remedies, might clear themselves
of responsibility by the nse of such moral
agencies as were within their reach.
Debauches All the People.
But the case is not so. The people of
all the stat i s are debauched and defrauded.
The vast sums of money offered to the
tates for charters are drawn from the
people of the United States, and the gen
eral government, through its mail system.
Is made the effective and profitable me
dium between the lottery company and
Its victim. The nse of the mails is quite
as essential to the companies as the state
license. It would be practically impossi
ble for these companies to exist if the pub
lic mails were once effectively closed
against tht-ir advertisements and remit
tances. The use of the mails by these com
panies is a prostitution of an agency only
Intended to serve the purposes of a legiti
mate trade and a decent social intercourse.
Official C'orrnption Imputed.
"It is not necessary, I am sura, for me to
atteiup' to portray the robbery of the
poor nnd the wide spread corruption of
public and private morals which are the
neeesiary incidents of these lottery
schemes. The national capital has be
come a sub headquarter of the Louisiana
lottery company, and its numerous
agents and attorneys are condneting here
a business probably involving a larger use
of the mails than that of any legitimate
business enterprise in the District of Co
lumbia. There seems to be good reason
to believe that the corrupting touch of
these agents has been felt by the clerks in
the postal service and by some of the po
lice officers of the District of Columbia.
Radical Legislation Suggmted.
"Severe aud effective legislation should
be promptly enacted to enable the post
Dffice department to purge the mails of
all letters, newspapers and circulars re

as to prevent the nse of those agencies to
maintain communication between the lot

tomers in other states. It does not seem
possible that there can be any division of
sentiment as to the propriety of closing
the mails against these companies, and I
therefore venture to express the hope that
such proper powers as are necessary to
that end will be at once given to the post

Some years ago we were very much
tabject to severe spells of cholera morbus;
and now when we feel any of the symp
toms that usually preceed that ailment,
inch as sickness at tbe stomach, diar
rhea, etc., we become scary. We have
found Chamberlain's Remedy the very
ining to straighten one out in such cases,
and always keep it about. It is some
what similar to the usual cholera cares,
bat seems to contain ingredients that ren
der It more pleasant to take, and that do
their work more quickly. Sheriff Dever
eux tells us that he is subject to cholera
morbus, and recently felt a spell coming
on, when be obtained a bottle of Cham
berlain'a Colic. Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy and two doses made him all
right. We are not writing this for a pay

what ' is a good thing to keep in the
