The Brlcht Oatl.ok ft'.r the u(Bl.
PaoRiA.Ul, Nov. 18. Special cor
respondent. Darin the past fort
night I have been making ,be rounds
of the neighbo -ing villages and townships
and have had the opportunity to sound
the it nee cOrm r and grocery store poli
tician, on their views of the coming cam,
paign. The tvsulu of my investigations
in mis line are anything but flittering to
the republican party, and if Illinois fails
to adorn the democratic column after
the battle of '93. it will not be the fault of
the farmers in this section. The republi
can who eolates his soul with the idea
that the farraur landslide of a year eo
has been recovered is hugging a ehasily
delusion. There is one and only one
candidate who could bring back into the
republican fold a por.ion of the disaffec
ted ones, and that is Biaiae, and it is
pretty generally conceded by the tin plate
wiseacres that he will again forbid tbe
use of bis namt; at the convention. The
toroy handtd tiller of the soil is no
loncer the conservative element of the
country and reference to the conserva
tive administration of President H-rrison
isgree:ed with a discontented grunt.
Blaine with h a reciprocity scheme in
which tbe farmers recogoizs democratic
low tariff, sugar coated to delude monop
olists, might btirg bck some of the old
time enthusiasm. The farmers utterly
refuse to be reconciled to the McKinley
bill, and the Australian ballot system bas
cut off the i urchase of floaters, and
makes Indiana surely democratic and
Illinois as surtly doubtful.
The farmer disaffection is not confined
to national issues. They htve their
knives out and ready wLelted to slaugh
ter Joe Fifer, should be be the nominee
for governor. They have neither forgot
ten or forgiven "Private Joe's ' action in
tbe matter of the railroad and warehouse
board. The governor slighted and ig
nored the grant ers in appointing Tanner
against the expressed wishes of the
farmers and ihey have not forgoten it.
Fifer and Tamer have fallen out
and it is s lid tbe latter aspires to the
treasurership. The farmers never did
like John R . and will "swot" his head
wherever be pokes it up Farmer, disaf
fection is not tl e only obstacle that con
fronts the republicans in the coming cam
paign. The lender of the party are all
split up into factions and are at war
among themselves. The Hank Evans
clique have already made up their state
for the state no mnees, and will endeavor
to force it upon the convention, in spite
of farmer protests. It is rumored that
Evans wants to be treasurer himself, and
with Tanner as the next most probable
cacdidate the convention will probably
alieniate the few remaining farmer ad
herents of the I arty.
During the recent convention of the
Young People's Society of Christian En
deavor in this city, a visiting divine told
me a good story bearirg on politics. I
have already re a ted it in a letter to an
oiher paper, but it has not as yet had time
to start on tbe rounds and will be new to
Argus readers. The minister in ques
tion was called, during the late campaign
in Ohio, to ed minister consolation to a
dying democrat Among other things he
read tbe iccideat of Sampson's slaying
thousands of Philistines with the jaw
bone of an ass. During tbe reading the
sick man remaii sd in an apparently un
conscious condition, but at the close of
the story suddei lv asked:
"Who told thit story V
"It is from .he bible," solemnly re
sponded the preacher.
"Well, hang Die if I didn't think it was
an extract from one of Bill McKicley's
tariff speeches," and so saying, the demo
crat turned his face to the wall and gave
up the ghost.
There is at prcseat in progress in the
circuit court a cise that will interest tbe
entire state. About a year ago Chicago
was much wrought up over a report thai
citizens of that t urg were eating the meat
of calUe a fleeter: with lumpy jaw or ac
tinomy cosis. There was a livtly news
paper discussion over the matter, and a
war of words betweeu tbe Chicago meat
Inspectors and the state board of live
stock commissions. At the height cf tbe
discussion tbe wtiUky trust shipped from
Peoria to Cbicaeo 125 fat cattle. Upon
their arrival in Ciicago the meat inspec
tors culled out 19 bead as - tfli'Cted with
lumpy jaw acd permitted the
others to pass At this point the
board of live stork commissioners stepped
in, condemned tl.e entire consignment and
sent them to the refuss tank. Tbe pres
ent suit is brought by lha whiskey trust
to recover damages from the state veter
inarian and live stock commissioners for
the 125 cattle distroyed. The town is
swarming with both theoretical and prac
tical witnesees, and the trust will en
deavor to show that lumpy jaw is not an
infectious or con .agious disease, and tbat
the meat of cattle affected with tbe disease
is fit for human food with the exception
of the head. They will endeavor to
estab.ieh the fact tbat tbe disease is pure
ly local and not nystemic.
From diseased meat to diseased brains
may be but a step and reminds me of an
other incident of the past week . An
idiotic but harmless tramp was given
lodgings at the police station tbe other
night, and below he waa consigned to a
bed the desk sergeant searched him and
found among other things a roll of man
uscript poetry ev dently home made. The
sergeant permitted me to copy the verses
which, though outraging all common
sense and cohereicv. have all the jingle
of a Gilbert & Stllivan comic opera. The
crack-brained po-it starts out by address
ing his best girl la the following style:
"Twinkle, twina le. little girl.
How tby nue oat of curl '.
Like a lamp post in the ky.'
That is pretty good, and he goes onto
ask her to elope with him on a "lawyers
dray" and "gallop o'er the sea" together,
and ,. '
feast on odhn chop?.
Pea-men pra n and lollipops :
' Hoot tbe .Upper, catch the croup.
And fill our htea with niyrt e oop.
How's that? Then in an impassioned
moment be aays:
'Gaily the tieer-ct tuned hi gmtar,
Bennkdiug the majrpie with feather aad tar.
mat then ddS that the ,owboP ,nl
W?j!i totpgraph clow to her heart,
W rapped np in loMUra and mustard apart."
jnow tt strikes me that this poor imbe
cile i tramp his managed to incorporate
in his idiotic jinsle fully as much sense
as the newspaper eattor finds in the pro
ductions of tbe callow poets and poet
esses who make life one "demnition bow
wow" for him.
I nearly forgot to state that Judge A.
T. Hunter, of Paris, III., was a visitor in
the city during the week. The j udge has
got a gubernatorial bee in his bonnet and
makes no secret of tbe fact. He is after
the democratic nomination and proposes
to make a canvass of the state.

Seventy- five grinders and polishers in
the employ of the Deere plow works,
struck this morning because of a new rule
which went into effect this morning re
quiring the workmen to keep a record of
the names of the pieces they work on as
well as the number. The men claim that
tbe rule is obnoxious in that they are not
familiar with the technical terms of the
various parts which pass through, their
hands. The company finally made a
proposition to the strikers to put a clerk
in tbe department to familiarize the men
with tbe terms of the pieces they handle,
but it is not known yet how the men are
disposed to tbe offer. The men in the
other departments of the factory to which
the same rule applies, have manifested no
opposition to it.
