The Republican District
As far es Rock Island county is con
cerned both parlies have reason to con
gratulate themselves on the results ot yes
terday's conventions. In the democratic
state convention the Rock Island delega
tion, and in fact the entire Eleventh con
gress onal district, was particularly fa
vorec.. As indicated in yesterday's dis
patclcs to Thk Argus, the caucus of the
Eleventh district as a preliminary to the
convention, mapped out a course which
subsequent events show was pretty close
ly alhered to. This provided for the
appointment of Hon. E. W. Hurst as a
member of the committee on resolutions,
J. W . Potter as state central committe
man. J. H. Hanley as elector, with Guy
C. S-iott, of Mercer, and Truman Plantz,
of Hancock, as delegates to th3 national
convention, and M.J. McEniry, of Mo
line, and Matthew Houston,
of Henderson, alternates. The
convention made no alterations in these
preferenct s, but it did mora for the Etev
ea'.h. When it came to the appointment
of a committee to select delegates at large
Georje Dyson, of Schuyler, was
chosen for the the Eleventh,
and Congressman Ben T. Cable was
elected one of the delegates at large
for the state of Illinois, one of the
highest and one of the mo3t important
positions a party can delegate to one of
its re pre sen tati ve members, and a fitting
horrr to Mr. Cable, too.
MB CABLE AND THK PRESIDENTIAL IN
STRUCTIONS. He prominence taken by Mr. Cable in
state politics has excited the wrath of a
number of small fry republican organs.in
clud ng i f course, the Union of
tnis city, which takes it upon itself this
mortiiog to attempt to show that Mr.
Cable was snubbed by Senator Palmer in
the telegraphic correspondence between
Senator Palmer and Congressman Cable
relating to the instructions for the presi
dency. This because some of the Chicago
papers In their first edition failed to con
tain the entire correspondence between
Gen. Palmer and Mr. Cable, owing to
the fact that those papers went to
pres j before the complete reports were in,
but the assreiated press sent out the cor
reepindence in full, and it appeared in
yesterday morning's D-venport Demo
crat, and in fact all the morning papers
cont lining in one edition the full Spring
field report. The Union basis its assump
tion that Mr. Cable wag subbed by Gen.
Palmer by first quoting this dispatch sent
by air. Cable from Springfield to Senator
When I left you in Washington you
charged me to say to the delegates and to
your friends that you neither expected
nor e'esired instructions for you, but that
you fel' you bad a right to ask the demo
cracy of the state to pats resolutions ex
pressive of their confidence in you. I have
thus stated your position in accord
ance with your request. It is as
serted now, however, that you have
denied any such conversation with me.
While 1 know that this cannot be true
you will see at once in what a position of
embarrassment these reports place me,
and will hasten to relieve me by verifying
what I have said concerning your posi
tion in a teleeram over your own signa
ture. May I not ask you explicitly
whether you desire iasttuctioas or not?
The friends of Cleveland oppose them.
Ben T Cable.
And to this the Union adds:
Did Palmer hasten to relieve.tbe young
mat's embarrassment? Not he. He allowed
our Ben to suffer under the double
mortification of baviBg his word disputed
and being snubbed.
Bat when Delos P. Phelps telegraphed,
"Cc ble asserts you don't wish instruc
tions is bis understanding correct?"
the senator hastened an answer show
ing that however it might have been last
week he was in for instructions this week
if he could get them:
"My letters, one of which Cable read,
exp ains my position. The committee
has control of the whole subject, and
mutt do what it thinks best. I have full
con Idence in your iudgment."
The old man. evidently too foxy for the
young man, allowed our Ben to stay in
the hole which bis real to defeat instruc
tions for Palmer so that the Illinois del
ega's might favor Cleveland, led him
But had the poor old sleepy morning
paper bad either the enterprise, or energy,
or. the sense of fairness, to have obtained
full particulars before venting its animos
ity toward Mr. Cable it would not haye
male the ass of itself it did this morning,
for Instead of the garbled report of the
telegraph messages between Messrs.
Palmer and Cable, it would have found
the following reply sent by Gen. Palmer
to Hr Cable's dispatch, and which ap
peared in every paper in the Western

This dispatch lert Washington at 10:43
p. m., and while too late .for the early
papers, the associated press printed it in
its late dispatches, neverthe
less, but that did not insure i s
publication in the Union it its correctness
notwithstanding tht that sheet had
abundant time in which to ascertain and
verify facts before jumping at conclu
sions, no matter how great the tempta
tion to adopt the latter tactics. But it
would not be the Union to do the thing
right, or to attempt it. It has a reputa
tion and it has sustained it.
