I am in receipt of your letter, wherein
you ask me to dt fine my position upon

In reply thereto, I beg to say that my
acceptance of the nomination to congress.
with which my party so recently honored
me, carried with it, 1 thought, in the ab
sence of any specific disavowal, a full en
doisementof the pledges of party faith
mane iy the democracy in its convention
at SpriugflcM, on June 4th. Yet, as you
esire a direct expression of opinion upon
uestions answer d in part by mv hearty
ndorsement of my party's platform. I
take great pleasure in offering it to you:
I believe that a reduction of the duties
pon imports now paid, under existing
tariff laws, is necf ssary to the prosperity
of our people, and hence I am unuttera
bly opposed to t ie whole spirit of the
Mehmley bill, with its increase of what T
regard as an alref dy unjust and oppress
The necessary moneys to defray the
current expenses of the government, to
provide properly for national defense, and
for wise internal improvements should be
raised through a t-ystem of internal reve
nue taxation, and the It-wins of duties
pon foreign goods brought to our
hores. But thtse duties should be so
adjusted as to beh.r as lightly as possible
pon the necessant-s of life, and heavily
upon all luxuries
That manufacturers may be better en
abled to competi; in foreign markets as
well as to sell their goods cheaper to the
home consumer, I believe that raw ma
terials should be placed on the free list;
pon the free list likewise should be
placed all goods manufactured by trusts,
that the power of the latter may be
broken, and that the people may enjoy
the benefits of a competition from
abroad, which, by combination, has been
stilled at home.
It is the "purpose of the democratic
party to revise tie tariff in this spirit, aDd
from those who bold eueh a revision a
wise one, it is fairly entitled to support.
Upon the farmer and the laborer the
burden of tariff taxation has rested with
a crushing weight. Il has protected the
manufacturer but not the laborer of the
farm and of the shop. I regard it as a
hopeful sign of the times to find the latter
joined together io an alliance for mutual
benefit and relief in opposing the silent
tax-gatherer who collects a tribute at
every custom's port of the United States.

What be Claims to be the Correct
Version Of the Kecent DifHeulty
Capt. John 0Connor, of the raft
steamer J. 3V. Van Sant. on which boat
on her last trip up occurred a row among
the crew in connection with which Capt.
O'Connor's name baa been connected in
an unfavorable light, arrived in the city
this morning coming down from the head
of the rapids in advance of his boat. ' He
at once called at the Akgus office to re
late the facts in the unfortunate occur
rence on the steamer above allMcd to,
and he says this version is the only cor
"We had been laying at LeClaire (all
day having some boiler repairs made," the
captain said, "and it was evening when
we got away. The trouble happened be
tween LeClaire and Princeton and this
was how it came about' There is an old
man employed on the boat called 'Dad.'
He is a harmless, inoffensive old chap,
but this man Francis McMahon, seemed
have a grudge toward him. He
bad been picking at the old fel
low for some time and was partic
ularly abusive on the evening in
question. I had been watching McMahon
and having determined that the matter
had gone for enough, I went down to the
lower deck to take the old man's part.
had no idea of creating a disturbance,
but rather to preserve order. McMahon
resented my interference and was so in
suiting that 1 confess, I struck him. A
few blows were exchanged and having
made up my mind that I bad settled the
thing, as McMahon . said he had got
enough, I started up stairs again. As I
turned my back, McMahon rushed upon
me and struck me from behind and
nocked me down.; He was about to
urop on me when the cook came to my
rescue. McMahon then rushed up through
the cabin and I put after bim. In
going past my room I reach td
and got my revolver as Mc
Mahon bad made threats, and I knew
that he was murderously inclined, and
there was no telling what be would do
f he got a drop on me or could make a
sneak and take me unawares. I followed
him down to the blacksmith shop where
he came at me with an immense club.
ordered him to drop it, but did not
point my revolver at him. It was a self-
cocker, though, and accidentally it went
off, the bullet striking the floor and in an
opposite direction from where he stood.
He then retreated, and again said he
wonld make no further trouble. But a
few minutes later I found him quarreling
with the pilot, Geo. Twomblcy. I agsin
nterfered as was my duty as master of
the boat, and succeeded in preserving
order, McMahon for the third time prom
ising that he would behave himself.
There was no more heard of McMahon
until we reached Albany, where I was
told that he had left the boat. I turned
the light on the shore, and saw him run-
ing'up the bank. I called him back
and told him to get his pay before he
left, but he paid no attention. That was
all there was of the trouble. The story
that I fired at McMahon after be had left
the boat la false, as my revolver, now in
the bands of the cook to whom I gave it
after coming out of the blacksmith shop,
as but one empty chamber. Equally
false are the charges preferred by McMa
hon that myself or any of my crew, was
drunk, and wiil so be proven. This Mc
Mahon is a bully, and has been discharg
ed on numerous occasions for his dom
ineering insulting ways. Steamboatmen
are generally afraid of him."
' I desire to have the A Rous thank my
friends here," said the captain, 'for the
way they have stood by me in this
trouble, and have not been inclined to
call me guilty until they knew all sides of

THE GOOD TEMPLARS.
Proceedings of the Illinois -Wrand
Lodge at Mollae Officers Elected.
. At yesterday's meeting of the Illinois
Grand Lodge of Good Templars at
Moline, the committee on temperance
literature made a report, recommending
that a course of temperance study be
adopted; that lecturers in the field shall
recommend all Good Templars to sub
scribe for and read temperance papers,
and also recommending that temper
ance tracts be distributed by lodges
throughout the state. The finance com
mittee made a report, which was divided
and discussed at length. That part
which recommended that the office of
Grand Chief Templar be continued as an
honorary one, was the cause of conider
able discussion. The recommendation
was finally concurred in, and the office
was continued as an honorary one, with
out salary attached.
The recommendation was made that
$84 be sent to aid Nebraska temperance
people in their prohibition movement
campaign in that state; and, on motion,
that amount was ordered appropriated.

Chances la the Pay or OfHeerw.
At a meeting of the board of supervi
sors this morning the retrenchment com
mittee reported upon the petition of the
Farmers' Alliance which was laid before
it asking that the salaries of all county
officers be made $1,200 instead of the
present sum, and recommended that the
salaries be placed at $1,400.
Upon this report there was some dis
cussion some favoring the original
amount as stated in the petition, others
holding to the committee's report, and
others insisting npon $1,500. A com
promise was effected, however, and a vote
taken upon the proposition that $1,500
be allowed all the officers except county
udge, and his salary to be fixed at $1,700.
The vote carrying this amendment into
effect was 15 to 7 as follows:
