The Evansyiile Journal celebrated its
forty-ninth anniversary Ma; 1 b; coming
out with an edition that does credit to
Indiana's second city.
Tee statement of the republican press
that Judge Altgeld was nominated by the
Cook county delegation, and had no sup
port in the interior of the state, is as gross
a fabrication as many other unfounded
claims of his enemies. Judge Altgeld
received a total of 561 votes in the con
vention, to which number his own coun
ty only contributed 211, showing that 350
votes or 1G5 more than those cast for
Gen. Black, his closest competitor, came!
from the country districts. If Cook
county bad been eliminated from the con
test entirely, Judge Altgeld would have
been successful just the same. This cry
of the democratic gubernatorial nominee
being weak in the country is all bosb,and
the republicans will find it out to
their sorrow next November. Thev are
merely shouting to keep up their courage
Which is sadly affected at the present
Our State Ticket Commended Every.
"Well done in Illinois" is the way tve
St. Louis Republic heads a leading edi
torial relating to the ticket nominated by
the democracy of the state last week and
then it goes on to say:
The democratic party in Illinois is left
in a commanding position by the action
of its state convention. Its state ticket
has all the elements which command suc
cess before the people. Its platform
makes a clear and bold statement of the
state and national issues on which the
campaign will be decided. The follow
ing resolutions show how courageously
the party enters the state campaign:
"We are proud of our common school
system, and pledge ourselves to uphold
and improve it, for free institutions cao
not txidt without universal education.
We denounce the republican party for
enacting a law which tends to bring the
cause of popular education into disrepute;
a law which takes from the parent the
right to educate his child according to the
dictates of his conscience; a law which
creates a state inquisition over schools
toward which the stale contributes noth
ing; a law which gives absolute power to
every local sch- ol boar J, no matter how
ignorant and spiteful, to harass and perse
cute a large class of people who are
among our best citizens and who do their
full duty both toward the state and their
children, and who, by their labor, their
patriotism and intelligence, have con
tributed very much to our prosperity aDd
greatness, such a law is further to be
condemned as an invasion of that re
ligious liberty guaranteed by the consti
tution and which in efitxt amounts to an
interference with the christian church.
This law is antagonistic to democratic in
stitutions, and we demand its uncondi
tional repeal, and we pledge our candi
dates for the legislature to vote and work
to that end.
"We favor the election of the Unid
States senators by a direct vote of the
The demand herein made for the uncon
ditional repeal of the republican compul
sory education law with :t provisions for
political control of private schools leaves
the republican party no room for evasion
It must either repudiate its record and
consent to absolute freedom of education
in Illinois or lose the state Having nude
pledges Heretofore only to violate them.
it must now indorse the democratic de
mand for educational freedom, and after
having done so must stand its trial before
the people for its acts of opposition.
nun tne ucaei nominated, ana cn a
platform thus strong in its preservation
of state as well as of national issues, the
democrats ought to carry Illinois by a
plurality of over 10.000 . This allows !or
a loss of 16,000 from their plurality of
low, ana iney now present a ticket cer
tainly not less strong than the ticket of
1800, while the pi ttf orm is much stronger
The possibility of dissensions over the
choice of presidential candidates is hap
pity avoided by instructions wcich
indorse Senator Palmer and call
on the Illinois delegation to Chi
cago to use all honorable means to secu-e
his nomination in the event the conven
tion finds it advisable to come west for a
candidate. This is definite enough to
express the wishes of Illinois democrat".
and at the same time it shows tbem un
willing to put their delegation in a strait
jacket. Expressing a preference of its
own, Illinois, will be able to consult with
other states in convention and join them
