An Appeal to Stand by the Regu

The tatr Central committee Take
Aetion on the Chicago Mayor
alty Fisht HarriMOn
Treated a a Bolter.
Upon invitation of the Cook county
democracy and the city central commit
tee of Chicago, the democratic state cen
tral committee of Illinois, met at the
Sherman house Saturday in an endeavor
to restore harmony among the democrats
of Chicago, thus insuring the election of
their ticket by at least 20,000 majority
Chairman Phelps called the committee to
order, and W. II. Ilenrichsen, of the
Twelfth district, was chosen secretary in
place of Mr. Nelson, who was absent.
The roll was called, and the following re
sponded to their names:
Dtlos P. Phelp. J. C. Strain, J. R
Creichton, S. B. Chase, at lare. First
district, Thomas Gahan; Second, Joseph

can; Seventeenth, J. W. Lumpkin;
Nineteenth, Eiward Wilson (proxy);
Twentieth, T. F. Bjuton (proxy).
Chairman Phelps bad addressed a letter
to Carter Ilarrison asking him to appear
before the commit.ee in the hopes
of inducing him to withdraw. Mr.
Ilarrison made a statement of hi
case, claiming to be the regularly
nominated democratic candidate for
mavor and refused most emphatically to
pull off. Ex-Congressman Liwler and
Adoluh Kraus also spoke in his behalf
. when a couple ot Mayor Cregiet's adher
ents were heard. 1 he evidence was so
overwhelmingly acainst Harrison that
the committee unanimojslv adopted the
1. That the committee take a decid
ed stand in favor of the regular demo
cratic ticket, and that Chairman Pnelps
and Committeeman Wilson be a commit
tee to prepare an address to the" demo
crats of Chicago, urging them to support
the recular democratic ticket, and that
the ticket recognized by the committe as
regular ib that beaded by DeWilt C. Cre-
2. That a telegram be seat to Gen.
John M. Palmer urging him to arcept the
invitation already sent to him to corns to
Chicago to participate in the campaign
in behalf of the regular or Cregier
3. That the democratic members of
congress from 111 nois and the gallant
101 members of the legislature be re
quested to do the name.
4. That the coma.itte open headquar
ters in Chicago until after the election
and assist the l'.c.i democratic organiza
tions in every legiiim-ite manner and fur
nish speakers ot national reputation in
behalf of the regular ticket.
When the commute met in the even
ing, the following d :rtsi f lie voters
of the city wiis unanimously adopted:
'To ihe demcra'.ic voters of the city
of Chicago: A regularly called demo
cratic convent i n recen ly held in your
city placed a fud city ticket in the Held.
The election ufees plice April 7 next.
Carter II Harrison, a caizen of Chicago,
was a candidate for the nomination for
mayor before the convention. Some del
egates favorahle to his nomination with
drew from the couvention before its nom
inations were uia when it became evi
dent that he on i not be nominated.
Other of his dkg'es remained and p&r
ticipated in the itors of the convention
to its close. Afterward some parties go
tocetber in an irr'C'Jlar and informal
manner an? placed iid Carter II. Harri
son in nomination for ltayor. This ac
tion was tnken without any authority
whatever derived frm action or direction
of the democratic pirty, and cau have no
other effect then to tend to defeat the
reglusrly n omnia ed ticket and place the
city under repuhlicm control for two
years to come. The effect of the ap
proaching election is so far-reaching that
it may poasinly even cdntrolthe approach
io& state and national elections of 1892.
For this reason and because of the earn
est request aid solicitation of all the reg
ular democratic organizations in Chicago,
the democratic sute central committee
thought it its duty to endeovor to prevent
such a catastrophe. It desired to see en
tire harmony au.ong Chicago democrats.
. which would, witoout doubt, secure the
election of the democratic ticket in Cni
cago by an overwhelming majority. It
eaw no other way to obtain this than , to
stand by the formal and regular action of
the party. It regarded the triumph and
success of democratic ideas of govern
ment as far more important than toe suc
cess of any individual in obtaining and
holding office. It thought that any good
and true democrat, when the matter was
fairly presented, would refuse to be a can
didate against the regular nominee or do
any other thing that threatened the ins
tegTity and continued ascendency of the
party in the city, state and nation. It de
sired to bring harmony and unity ot ac
tion to the Chicago democracy by the
most forbearing and considerate action
possible, eo that there might remain no
peisonal feeling or heart-burning to mar
and lessen the most perfect harmony ot
fHere appears the letter of invitation
to Mr. Harrison, referred to above.
"In response to this letter Mr. Harri
son. Mr. Kraus. Mr. Lawler and others
came before the committee and stated
fully their side ot the case, and the com
mittee investigated the subject carefully
by all the means in its power. As ad
mitted by Mr. Lawler and otherwise con
clusively shown the convention contained
409 delegates chosen at the primaries, of
which 309 were for Mr. Cregier for mayor
and 100 for Mr. Harrison. When it ap
peared that Harrison would cot be nom
mated forty-seven Harrison delegates
withdrew and fifty-three remained and
participated in the convention. The
tegular convection nominated D. C.
Cregier for mayor and the bolting dele
gates repaired to a hall, and, without
committee or credentials or any formal
separation of the so-called delegates from
the general crowd, proceeded by acclama
tion to nominate Mr. Harrison for mayor.
It is not pretended that there was either
formality or regularity in the proceedings
or that convention, or that it had any
recognized authority from any regular
source. Notwithstanding all that could
be urged by the central committee the
purpose still remains to continue the
bolting ticket in the field and thus
jeopardizs the success of our party merely
to gratify a personal vanity or ambition.
The lot of the democracy of Illinois is
cast with that of the democracy of Chi
cago. Neither one can succeed without
the other. Neither has the right to cause
the defeat of the other much less has
any single democrat or small collection of
democrats the right to injure the prospect
of success and future hopes of the party.
Under this state of affairs the democratic
state central committee cannot remain
silent. The duty devolved upon it by
the demucracy of the entire state in
formal convention assembled forbids it.
This address is intended for the care
ful consideration of every democratic vo
ter of Chicago, that this committee un
equivocally declares it to be the duty of
every democratic voter in Chicago to
banish all personal feelings and cast his
vote for De Witt C. Cregier for mayor and
for the whole of the regularly nominated
ticket. This is our only hope of safety.
Any other course is but indirectly aiding
the enemy in our overthrow, and is
fraught with the greatest dangers to our
party success, not only now, but ia the
great state and national contest of 1S92
so near at hand. Let every democrat
rally to the support of the ticket Let
no countenance be given to men who
bolt a convention because they cannot se
cure a nomination. In uaion there is
strength; in division, defeat and over
throw. "Toe goal of good government, for
which we have so long striven, is j ust be
fore us. Let us be wise and we shall
soon attain it. It is worthy of our most
persevering and unselfish efforts. Elec
tion day is dose at hand. We beg of
you neither to doubt nor hesitate. Be
active, vigilant, untiring and united on
the regularly nominated ticket and your
victory and that of the state and nation
is assured. You have out your duty to
perform. It is plain to every good dem
ocrat. Do it like men. We also urge
you to call to your aid in this battle for
the safety of our party all good demo
crats tnrougnouttne state and nation, in
which you will have the full support and
assistance of this committee.
