Remarks "Made by "Long" Jonei and
Senator Mathews A Business Meeting
with Little Speaking and Ko Resolu
tions Some Kews from the Districts
Preferences as to the Candidate for
President Next Year Blaine a Prime
Favorite No One but Fifer Spoken of
for Governor of Illinois.
Chicago, July 29. Yesterday the Re
publican editors of Illinois met to the
number of more than 100 and organized
for the coming campaign. The " meeting
was called to order at the Grand Pacific
hotel In the ladies' parlor by Senator Mil
ton W. Mathews, editor of the Urbana
Herald. Besides the editors there were
present a number of the prominent Re
publican leaders of the state, among them
Attorney General Hunt, Secretary of State
Pearson; George Prince, of Knox county;
General McNulta: John R. Tanner; Sen
ator Charles Fuller, of Belvidere; A. H.
Jones, of Robinson; Dan Berry, of Car
roll, and General J. S. Martin, of Salem.
Welcomed by "Long" Jones.
Editor C. G. McXichols, of Momence,
was elected secretary, and 'Long" Jones
formally welcomed the editors to Chicago.
In a few well chosen words he stated the
objects for which they had been summoned
to the meeting on the call of the executive
committee. The political atmosphere had
been exceedingly hazy of late, and the
most strenuous efforts to resuscitate He
publican principles would have to be made
if any substantial points were to be
reached in the coming campaign of 1892.
That was a year and more ahead, but it
was none too early to get together the
men whose pens wielded intelligently
could be such great benefit for the Repub
Chairman Matliem' Remarks.
Chairman Mathews then spoke, his re
marks being loudly applauded. He laid
especial stress on the good that can be
wrought to the Republican cause through
the united efforts of Republican editors
and especially country editors. The
great Republican metropolitan dailies, it
was true, stretched out their arms over
wide reaches of territory, but the country
sheet would reach where the great daily
would never penetrate, and lay nearest
after all to the heart of the people. Dem
ocratic principles and Democratic aggres
siveness were a growing menace to the
state. The Democratic population o the
great city of Chicago was a constant men
ace to law and order.
The Country Editors Needed.
Ha had noticed in his Democratic ex
changes a perfect flood of tree trade lec
tures; but Republican sheets were unpro
vided with arguments to repel tbese seri
ous fallacies. They emanated from some
organization which was alive to the neces
sity of obtaining the aid of Democratic
country editors. The Republicans had
never called on the Republican editors
until now, because, perhaps.- they had
never felt their necessity, iluch laugh
ter. Thaae should lie an organization to
furnish articles to the country press on
all subjects of national importance the
tariff and the silver question.
The Organization Effected.
A committee on organization was ap
pointed and reported in favor of namiug
the body the Republican Kditorial asso
ciation of Illinois, with officers as follows:
Milton W. Mathews, Urbana, president;
vice presidents, J. B. Brown, Galena Ga
zette; YV. L. Jones, Ielwinon Herald- Rob
ert M. Woods, Joliet Sun; secretai-y.
Charles S. McXichols, Momence. The
following executive committee was ap
pointed: Colonel E. A. Calkins, Joseph
Ceremack, T. C. MacMillan, Robert W.
Patterson, Chicago; J. H. Hadder, Auro
ra; Smith D. Atkins Freeport; B. f
Shaw, Dixon; John R. Marshall, York
vllle; Charles Holt, Kankakee; Marsh
Hanna, Peoria; W. H. Eastman, Moline;

Collier, Albion: A. G. David, Carlinviile;
H. J. Schmidt, Nashville; R. F. Lawson,
Kimmundy; B. F. Copeland, Marion.
Mnst Be Republican Editors.
Theodore Gestefield and John A. Evan-
der, of Chicago, and B. B. Turner, of
Springfield, were named as members-at-
large, and then the committee was ordered
to meet on Aug. 13 for a consultation with
the central committee. It was decided that
only a Republican, who edits a Republican
paper, shall be eligible to membership,
and all the editors present signed the rolL
SOME EDITORIAL OPINIONS.
How Illinois Republicans Feel Regarding
A reporter took the opportunity during
the day to find what the opinion was
throughout the state regarding the presi
dency, and also as to governor. The fol
lowing are specimen views:
W. L. Jones, Lebanon Journal Jehu
Baker is our favorite for congress. Xo
one is spoken of for governor, that I know
of, except 1 lfer. e think Harrison has
made a good president, but Blaine is the
strongest with us, if he is in the field. We
expect no contest between them, however."
Blaine Decldely the Choice.
J. S. Wilroughby, Belleville Advocate
For congress W. A. Haskell is probably
ahead, if he wants it, which he probably
does not. Nobody -is mentioned for gov
ernor except Fifer, and the district will
probably be for him. For the presidency
there is a desire to compliment Cullom,
out dame is uecmeaiy tbe choice.
Charles Holt, Kankakee . Gazette I am
in favor of the best men who have the
requisite strength to wipe out the Demo
crats. If Blaine is in good health he will
carry the country and I think he will be
Harrison Ahead in This Caae.
G. M. Tat ham, Greenville Advocate-
There has not a word been said about con
gressman or governor. For president,
Harrison is eur choice, but Blaine is very
close behind him.
W. H. Hainlinx, Macomb Journal-
Charles Deere, of Rock Island, is probably
ahead for congress. We have no complaint
to make of Fifer, but have no choice for
governor because we are working for New
ton Pearson's re-election as secretary of
state. For president, the Blaine people
make the greatest noise, bat tbe Harrison
peopls are tbe most numerous.
The majority of the editors appeared
well satisfied with Harrison, bnt favored
Blaine as first choice. Cullom was snokan
of as a possibility by a few.

to death and twenty others badly iniured.
To the surprise of the Russians, who were
accustomed to see the Jews submit pas
sively to all outrages, the inhabitants
armed themselves with stones and sticks
and pursued the Russians. In the fight
whicb occurred a youth whose mother had
been burned to death killed three Russians
with a crowbar. Officials from Veila came
