W. H Hinrichsen.of Jacksonville, pop
ularly known as "Buck" Hinrichscn, and
member of the democratic slate
central committee of Illinois from
the Twelfth district, is in the city
today ati is being chaperoned, so to
speak, by Chairman Silvis of tbe demo
cratic county committee. Mr. Hinrich
scn is one of the most energetic and best
known democrats in the state. He is a
veritable hustler, one whose work and
influence are felt wherever they are ex
pended. He was for years proprietor
and editor of tie Quincy Herald, but of
more recent years be has been at the
helm of the Jacksonville Courier.
He is one of those democrats whose po
litical enthusiasm comes from his very
soul, and when he turns it loose it sweeps
all before it with convincing tffjet. He
is such a cian as is an honor to his party
and a joy to his race.
Mr. Elirriclisen is going over the state
instructing' the county committees in the
working ef the Australian ballot system.
He mabet a county each day, and has
been out almost continuously since Jan.

102 counties in the state.
To an Aitous reporter be sid casually
that tbe prospects over the state for the
party were brighter than ever, and with
John M. Palmer at the head of the ticket,
there would be no possibility of doubt of
sweeping the state from end to end. He
had observed that Cleveland has a strong
following lIJ over the state, but that un
less he can come to tbe convention with
the delegat on from his own state at his
back, be cc uld never secure the nomina
tion. The prospects for carrying the
state arc brighter than ever before, as the
election two years ago showed that a
concentrate! effort would. work a won

for a 5 -horse power motor of the
Thomson-Houston design, thus doubling
its former capacity for electric motor
power, and the new motor has after suf

In fact it is not the exaggeration of an
enthusiast when we state that we con

by the electric motor. This is the con

summed up. No adverse characteristics
can be cons dered, for it has none.

explosion, etc. all are dispensed
