speech in returning thanks for the nom
ination, shows that in the question or
tariff reform he is in line with the senti
ment of the party. That question will
be kept to the front acd there will be do
Pobteb Freeborn, of Praiiie City .has
applied for a pension, which has brought
to light facts on which might be based a
romance. Mr. Freer. orn enlisted a pri
vate in company I, 73d Illinois infantry.
While in the service he became ill . Fail
ing to secure a furlough his brother,
Tboms8 Freeborn, went south and took
Toner's place, the latter coming north to
recuperate. Tbcmas also sickened and
was tsken to an army hospital and there
died as Porter Freeborn. Porter, on re
covering bis health, returned from the
noith and served the remainder of tbe
time of his enlistment, thouph the at my
records showed and still show that he
died in a hotpital as above stated. sir.
Freeborn's pension case is now pending,
and as he produces ample evidence of all
his claims, it is probable that his claims
will be successful.. ,

Erhtr of the Km ait Battle.
The speakership contest has been over
for some days, but several democrtttic,
papers, notably in Chicago, continue
their attacks upon William R.Morrison
for his alleged efforts to defeat Mr
Springer and nominate Mills in that fight
They call it "treachery." Even presum
ing that Mr. Morrison acted as charged
bow can it be treachery ? Mr. Springer
was the nominee of no caucus. Tbe
Freeport Bulletin asserts that in common
with many otber democratic papers
(including The Argus), preferred him
for tbe speakership, but every democrat
had an equal right to favor a ny of tbe
other candidates. Mr. Springer de
aired tbe office of speaker and it wi a
a laudable ambition. He therefore put
himself forward as a candidate, precisely
as did Messrs (Jrisp and Mills, iiis can-
didacy was a purely personal one and be
had no claims upon tbe support of any
body except as he might be supposed to
possess qualifications for tbe office su
perior to loose of the other candidates.
This is a point, however, upon which
people may honestly differ and everybody
has an equal right to his own opinion.
There can be no treachery where there
is no obligation.
As is well known Col. Morrison holds
tariff reform to be tbe most important
issue now before the public Mill's name
has been identified for years with tariff
revision. They have been fellow-laborers
in tbe same great cause, it waa only
natural that he should prtfer the Texan.
In this be was only acting within his
rights as an American citizen and as a
Mr. Morrison was a candidate for
.office himself some years ago He was
the nominee of the democracy for United
States senator. Yet he was unable to
Obtain tbe united support of the party on
any ballot when his election was possib'e
There was no talk about "treachery'
then in the same papers that are now
coring him for acting upon his own
views of what was right and politic be
fore the caucus was held, mind you, not
These same papers say that Mr. Morri
son is politically dead, that be exercises
no influence, and yet in the same breath
they accuse him of trenferring half the
Illinois delegation from Springer to
Mills. There ia . a contradiction here.
Very likely Mr. Morrison ia by no means
ao dead as these gentlemen would wish.
Taking their own view of the matter it
must be admitted that they are waating a
Kicat ueai m ammunition upon a corpse. ,

The' Spsakership Fight.
Mr. Springer has shown that
he is a crood politician. In all
the contest over the speaker
ship he rever once lost his
temper, ard when he was fin
ally forced to yield he so man
aged as to bear away the
honors of l he fray. This was
a 'great thing to do. In ac
complishing it he gratified his
friends, an J at the same time
he administered a severe re
buke to those who refused to
stand by him to the end.
Springer is an indefatigable
worker and by his action in
this struggle he has shown the
country that he possesses bet
ter metal than he has vet been
credited wkh. He has agreat
future before him if he will
but take care of himself. To
this end le. him see that he
preserves ins Health. Most
members of congress give way
to some form of pulmonary
trouble. If Mr. Springer will
take ReidV German Cough
and Kidney Cure he will es
cape all danger from this
source. This great remedy is
the best thing in the world for
coughs, colds and every form
of disease that attacks the re
spiratory organs. This makes
it invaluable for men who
have to talk in public, especial
ly in open air. The remedy-
contains no opiate, so that it
can be taken at any time with
out fear of subsequent danger.
It will cure all throat trouble
from simple hoarseness to the
worst form of bronchitis, You
can get.it of any druggist, but
be sure to as for Keid s, and
take no other.

Senator Stanford of Cali
fornia has. it is said, become a
convert of spiritualism. The
senator is rich enough to be

will be interesting, though, to
ascertain wftetner the spirits
are urging him to make the
race for president on the alii
1 - 'IM 1 . i
ancc iicKei. i ne nest tninr
that the senator can do, if he
has made up his mind to run,
is to take Rcid's German
Cough and Kidney Cure with
diligence. This great remedy
is the best thing for the voice
that was ever put on the mar
ket. It contains no poison, but
is composed of pure and sim
ple, materials that act at once
and relieve the lungs of all
trouble. For bronchial diffi
culties it is without a rival. It
contains no opium so that i t
dees not paralyze the digest
tion but is relaxing, stimulat
ing: soothintr and healing. Of
all cough remedies it is the
only one of which this can be
said. Aged persons will find
this of the greatest assistance
for it enables the system to
throw off the maladies that
are so tatal in old age. In
cases of pneumonia it acts
every time with a certainty
that is marvelous. It has re
peatedly brought health to
people w hom the medical fac
ulty had pronounced to be be
yond all hope. When you ask
for this great remedy at your
drug store be particular and
see that the druggist gives you
"Reid's,' and do not be put off
w ith something that he says is
just as good.
