THE DE3I0CUATIC CANDIDATE.

The ilcmorHtio convention at Mon
mouth last Tuesday saw fit to select aa a
candidate for coinjrcss Mr. Benjamin T.
Cable, of Flock Island. The nomination
is a good one. To the people of Mercer
count Mr. Cable is well and favorably
known by reason of bis connection with
the mining town which bears his name
in Richlund Orove township.
Ila is a ripe scholar, a gentleman of
many accomplishments, a life long dem

eress. Although a man of Rreat wealth he is
a man of the people. To know him is to
know he is your friend, and we say to
the people of the district that as he comes
among you in the near future you will

In? hand of the government should give

medium equal to the necessities of the
people and the commerce oi tne country
should be provided by the national con
cress. He should receive the hearty sup
port of every farmer and laborer who has
an ODportunity to vote lor him.
While it is true that he was at one time
interested in the railroad known as the
Mercer County railroad, be has not dur
ing the last six years had any connection
whatever with any railroad corporation.

Mr. Cable is a young mao of upright
life and spotless character. He will bring
into this campaign no dead issues. He
looks to the future. His is a caue to ex
cite the enthusiasm and receive the sup
port of the young voters who today are
bghting the battles for industrial freedom
who are seekiDg to shake off the shackles
which the protective tariff, a relic of semi
barbarism, has fastened upon commerce
and who are contending for the equal
rights of all men. Let us send a man to

Let us send a man there who will make
fight against the use of armed troops at
the polls and the thousand and one mi
quities of such measures as the McKinley
bill, and who has intelligence enouch to
discover what seems to be unknown to
many republican statesmen that recipro
city and free trade are one and the same,
The republican newspapers have begun
early in "ribbing" about Mr. Hen T. Cable
tra democratic nominee for congress
They are charging him with being a rail-
roal owner, monopolist, aristocrat, with
no care or consideration for the common
people, every word of which is false. Mr
(Jabln does not own a dollars worth o
slock in any railroad, and is one of the
most generoua and considerate of men
and mixes and mingles and has for his
acquaintances and friends the com
mon and poorer people as well as the
rich. That Mr. Cable Is wealthy, no
man will be foolish enough to deny
But It is no sin or crime to be rich, or
wrong in any tense if gained honestly
Who wouldn't be rich if he could? What
is wrong about riches is the use men make
of their money. If it is used to good pur
poses, the man and bis money may be a
blessing to the world and humanity. No
man who knows Mr. Cable or the Cable
family, of their public and private gen
erosity, of their kindness and help to the
poor and the unfortunate, can say aught
against them on account of their riches.
Such talk won't work where Mr. Cable is
known, hut it is left to the unscrupulous
and ignorant republican press, who have
some how heard that he has wealth, to
howl like a demon, monopolist! aristo
crat! and such like.

a Claim Illness of Senator Farwell
Washington Citv, Aug. 15. The Re
publican senators held a caucus last night
from 8 o'clock to 10:35 to discuss and, if
possible, to formulate an order of business
to govern the senate during the rest of the
present session of congress. There were
thirty-nine senators present. Senator Ed
munds presided. No definite proposition
was brought before the caucus, but the
subject discussed was the advisability of
laying aside the federal election bill and
arranging with the Democratic senators
to have a vote on the tariff bill in the near
future. Both of the Pennsylvania sena
tor, with Plum and others, advocated
laying the election bill over. They said
that it would be bad policy to keep con
gress here much after the 1st of Septem
ber, because members of both bouses were
needed in the states to take part in the
canvass for members of the house of rep
The Democrats in Charge.
Aldrich and other members of the
finance committee expressed the belief
that the Democrats could keep the senate
busy with the tariff bill for two months
longer unless some agreement was
ached, and they urged the necessity of
putting the tariff bill through at an early
day. Senator Aldrich said that he did
not believe that the senate could pass a
resolution to amend the rules so as to pro
vide for calling the previous question. He
Said that it would be necessary to have a
quorum of Republicans present, and
there was so much Hckness now among
the members that it was extremely doubt
ful if a quorum could be got together.
Seuator Spooner and Senator Hoar urged
the necessity of parsing the election bill
now, aud the hopelessness of trying to pass
it during the short session.
Spooner Stirs Them Up Some.
As oue senator expressed it after ad
journment. Senator bpooner "read the
riot act" to the assemblage. Finally
after more than two hours of debate,
without coming to any agreement as to
the future action of the senate and with'
out fixing a day for reassembling, the
caucus adjourned. The debate developed
the fact that about fifteen of the senators
present were in favor of letting the elec
tion bill go over. A special injunction of
secrecy was placed on those who were
present, and one Republican senator, who
is noted for extreme frankness, would
only shake his and say, in response to iu
quiries: "We are all split up."
Quay Makes a Complaint.
During the course of his remarks. Quay
nald that he objected to having southern
Republicans in the house set upon him by
Speaker Heed to yelp at his heels like

It is understood that the discussion of the
tariff bill will be continued and the river
and harbor bill' allowed to go over until
CAPITAL CITY MISCELLANY.
Ilonse and Senate in Brief.
Washington City, Aug. 15. In the sen
ate yesterday the house bill to ratify a
boundary line agreement between New
York and Pennsvlvania and the senate
joint resolution to relieve Oklahoma suf
ferers were passed. I lie tariff bill was
takeu up and the tin-plate paragraph dis
cussed. Vest s amendment to reduce the
rate to 1 cent a pound was rejected. Plumb
offered an amendmeut to reduce the rate
to 1 cent and pay a bounty of 1 cent
pound to manufacturers iu the United
States. This amendment was pending
when the senate adjourned.
The house spent the day discussing the
Nat McKay relief bill, but on a vote on
motion to recommit no quorum could be
had, and the house adjourned.
Polities and a Private Claim,
Washington City, Aug. 15. A good
deal of interest attaches in a political way
to the bill before the house referring the
claim of Nat MacKay to the court of
claims. President Cleveland vetoed this
hill and in retaliation MacKay visited
Europe and obtained a quantity of tariff
and labor material which he placed in the
hands of the Republican committee. The
result is that the Democrats are fighting
his bill at every point and Republicans
are generally rallying to his support.
Senator Far well's Illness.
Washington City, Aug. 15. Senator
Far well's condition is reported to be
slightly improving. He intends leaving
for home as soon as his health permits,
and will not return here this session. His
condition gives his friends some anxiety,
though it is hoped he may be able to re
sume his work in the senate by the begin'
nlng of next session.

Vf . J. Ifynes Causes a Stir Among Irish
Members of Parliament
London, Aug. 15. The persistent pres
ence of W. J. Hynes, of Chicago, at the
sittings of the house of commons arouses
a great deal of unfavorable comment
among certain Irish members. On Tues
day evening he occupied a seat under the
clerk in the house, having been intro
duced there by Donald Sullivan and Will
lam Murphy, two members of parliament.
He has visited the lobby four times al
ready this week, and has been hobnobbing
with the Irish members. He spent some
time Wednesday night with Healy in the
smoking room. Some of the Irish mem
bers are very indignant, as they consider
that Hyne's reception can not fail to af
feet the success of John Dillon's and
William O'Brien's projected trip to

After the ladies bad retired the encamp

adopted a report in favor of the sub titu-
tion of the old ritual for the one no-r in

encampment was defeated, and Command
er Alger's sentiments on the color line, as
expressed in his address, were indcrsed.
A resolution was offered requesting the
council of administration to prepare a
suitable testimonial for Gen. Alger.

Albany. N. Y., Aug. 15. The Central
railroad has broken the blockade here,
and last evening four freight trains were
moved west and three south. Each train
was protected by about twenty Pinker
tons. No opposition was made by the
strikers. The men on the Delaware and

Since the beginning of the tie-up the

been stubbornly contested, and the strik

has been fully accomplished. After sev

Jackson, Miss., Ans. 15. President Cal
houn, of the constitutional convention,
appointed his committees yesterday, put
ting Senator George and ex-Governor Al
corn on the committee on elective fran
chise. Little else was done. President
Calhoun, in answer to the United Press
correspondent's question as to what he
thought the convention would do with the
suffrage question, replied: 'It is too early
yet to make any prognostications as to
what plan will lie adopted. It depends on
what the convention lielieves will be most
effective within constitutional bounds,
after the various plans are discussed and
What the Convention Will Do.
'Yon can say, however, that the con
vent ion will adopt no plan which it does
not believe will lie thoroughly effective
and secure intelligent rule against that of
the ignorant. This will be done without
any intention of injuring the negro, but
rather for his good. Nothing but ballot
laws securing white supremacy under all
circumstances will accomplish this. As
the case now stands I think the Austra
lian ballot system, with several modifica
tions and important additions, is in the
ascendency. 1 myself favor it."

Some years ago we were very much
enbjeclto severe spells of cbolera morbus r
and now when we feel any of the symp
torus that usually preceed that ailment,
such as sickness at the stomach, diar
rhea, eta, we become scary. We have
found Chamberlain's Remedy the very
thing to straighten one out in such cases,
and always keep it about. It is some
what similar to the usual cbolera cures,
but seems to contain ingredients that ren
der it more pleasant to take, and that do
their work more quickly. Sheriff Dever
eux tells ns that be is subject to cholera
morbus, and recently felt a spell coming
on, wnen ne obtained a bottle of Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy and two doses made him all
right. We are not writing this for a pay
testimonial, but to let our readers know
what is a good thing to keep in the
house. Troy, (Kan.) Chief.
