der of a hermit named Brumel, and to
whom a long series of homicides and
robberies is attributed, admitted his
guilt) but pleaded in extenuation that
owing to the badly organized social sys
tern it was necessary to kill in order to
live. If he bad endeavored to live by
honest labor and failed, this plea would
excite some pity for him But he didu't.
He preferred murder and theft to indus

his doctrine to himself. It will kill him
that it may live.
The InOjana Prests on sstrvennon'si
To tbe nomination made that of Gen.
Adlai E. Stevenson, of Illinois there can
be raised not the slightest objection in
any quarter. A brave soldier, an ardent
patriot, an able lawyer, an efficient con
gressman, a skilled executive officer, a
life-long, unswerving democrat, his name
will bring strength to the ticket and en
thusiasm to the hearts r the democratic
Stevenson's name on the ticket is al
most an absolute assent-joe that the elec
toral vote of Illinois will be found ic the
democratic column when the votes shall
have been counted. For years during
and since the war he has possessed tbe
sincere devotion of the Illinois democ
racy and tbe respect and admiration of
all its opponents. Possibly no man in
the Prairie state bus a wider personal ac
quaintance than he among the people of
all parties, and it is an acquaintance of
so friendly a nature as to m-ure to the
ticket bearing bis name a large accession
But Oen. Stevenson is almost as well
and favorably known outside the state as
in it, and tking into cocsideration his
magnificent private and public record he
will prove, in every way, a Bt running
mate for Grover Cleveland.

The self-styled practical politicians of

There is a strange and weird parallel
between the efforts of Henry Clay and
James G. Blaine to reach the presidency.
Bi une, liae Clay, was defeated in two
republican conventions when the candi
date nominated over him was elected. In
his first contest at Cincinnati in 1876 be
received the votes of a majority of all
tbe delegates of tbe convention on differ
ent ballots, but never at any one time,
and be was defeated by tbe most desper
ate efforts of the republican leaders of
his native state. In 1880 be was again
defeated after the most protracted strug
gle ever had in a convention of his party,
and the nomination finally fell to
Garfield, who was elected. In 1884,
just 40 years after Clay's defeat, be
was tiven the nomination, and,
Ike Clay, was defeated by a
man who was little known to the nation
and whose fame had never exceeded the
limits of hiB state until he became a pres
idential candidate. Thus the efforts of
these great leaders to obtain tbe presi
dency ran almost in strictly psrallel lines
with each other. Both have been twice
defeated for tbe nomination when tbe
party succeeded. Both were deleated by
less eminent men than themselves, and
tbe parallel continues even to the end,
as Blaine's resignation just on the eve of
a meeting of the Minneapolis conrention
proclaimed himself a candidate only to
be defeated, like Clay, in 1848. They
will go into history as the two most brill
iant political leaders of the country, and
as tbe two men who, while moat honored
by their political followers and most en
thusiastically supported, were fated never
to be president.

The v op I s Choice.
The delegates to tie democratic na
tional convention respited the wishes of
the party at large ty placing Grover
Cleveland for tbe tbinl time in nomina
tion for the presldenc;'. This was done
by a vote tbat fell but little short or being
unanimous. The opposition was im
potent from the start ,nd seemed to feel
the utter hopelessneis of the contest
upon which tliey bad entered.
To be chosen as t le candidate of a
great political party f r tbe third consec
utive time, after having been defeated in
the preceding election, is an honor that
has never before been bestowed up n an
American citizen . Tl e reasons for Mr.
Cleve'and's populari y are creditable
alike to him and to tht democratic party.
It has not been gainid by timeserving
demagoguery and ap ealing to the pas
sions and prejudices of the misses. Oa
the contrary, it has been gained by stal
wart independence and a firm adherence to
bis sense of right tnder all circum
stances, no matter what abuse, calumny
and misrepresentation such a course might
entail upon him. It is not that other
democrats do not possi ss an equal degree
of sincerity and courBe that the party
prefers Cleveland, but because no other
deimcrat htg bad the opportunity to
prove in so ixaltcd a si here and under so
many temptstions Lis ; ossts-ion of those
qualities, The feelin,; is general that
1. td Lc signed every fraudulent appea
for a pension presented to bim, had be
been the bumble eerys i, of the factory
lords he would have been re-elected in
1888. But like another famous Ameri
can, he cnose to oe ism rattier man
president. This, we l link, is the secret
of the rtfflarkaule devo:ion to Mr. Cleve
land displayed by tbe iemocracy during
the past eight years.
But will tbe result ol tbe coming elec
tion be any different trom that of 1888?
Yes, we think so. Mr. Cleveland was
right all the time. Mislead by appeals
to their prejudices sn 1 selfish interests,
the people may be wrong for a while,
but they, too, are cerwtn to be right in
the long run . An en pty treasury and
increased taxation, ca rying out the re
publican policy of protection and boun
ties to its utmost ex'e it have convinced
them of their mistake in 1888. They
will remedy the error next November by.

HOW IT WAS WORKED
THE WAY O'BRIEN GOT $10,000 OUT
OF MR. PECK OF ALBANY.
A Slick Game Tliat Fooled a Respected
and Respectable Resident of New Tork
State Ho the King of Bunko Steer
era Handled His Lottery Scheme.
Bunkoer O'Brien stands at the head of
the bunko men of the United States, and
his story of how he got $10,000 from John
H. Peck, of Albany, gives an iasight into
the working details of his profession. It
so happened that the jury did not entirely
believe his story, and he was convicted
and sentenced to Danneniora for ten years
for robbery, while he asserted that he was
guilty of nothing worse than grand lar
ceny. His theory of defense was that he had
got his $10,000 from Peck by pitying a
simple bunko game, and not by force or
robbery at all. To prove this he went on
the stand, and producing all the imple
ments of the game be bunkoed the judge,
as well as the district attorney and the
O'Hrien's story was that he and Post
Were the operators. They lind marked
Peek as a man who was anxious to make
money and had a fair amount to invest.
Post called, on Peek and introduced him
self as a nejJhjew of Erastus Corning, one
of the most prominent cirijen of Albany
and the owner of a good deolol proferTy
Young Corning said thai hewaiitel to buy
a house on the highest point of Clinton
avenue iu order to get his wife away from
the malaria near the river. Peck h.ad a
house which he was willing to sell for
1 10,000. He and Corning walked up to t-
house, and on the way Dajflgtyg jT
geated that tlieyjasj, ft and M tL
for anreJ. wbo was trying
to establish an. agency In. Albany for the
sale of tickets. Cojninj; Explained to Peck
that the ney eompfiiiy Would deal much
more liberally by its customers than the
Louisiana company, and that he thought
some tnoney could be mud hy investing
lu the lottery, as he had already mud
Peck went In with Csvrni
O'Brien, who explained to them that :hfc
was the agent for a new lottery which Was
dealiug very liberally with its customers.
Aa one of the state agents with a flower to
conduct small drawings himself lie con
ducted a few tor the benefit of Corning,
who bought, a one dollar ticlrett. and won a
few hundred dollars, which was promptly
paid with the exceptiorrof a small balance,
which wnt over to theext day.
Tbe lottery was 'conducted with a pack
of forty-eight cards in eight sets, running
from one spot to six spots on a card. The
investor bought a drawing -for one dollar.
He could draw eight cards, and the spots
would amount to something between six
and forty-eight. If the spots amounted to
six he got a prize of 15,000. The same prize
was given lor ttje maximum draw of forty
eight. The prizes diminished to the inter
mediate numbers, which only entitled the
drawer to another ehnnce. O'Rrien told
Peck that as he was a friend of Mr. Cor
ning's nephew he did not mind explaining
that it was not the object of the new lot
tery company to make any money at first,
but to encourage people to buy tickets and
make their money afterward. That was
the reason that they had only one blank in
their drawings and that every other draw
entitled the investor to a prize or another
O'Hrion had the bunko chart on the
table in front, of him. It was about ns
large ns the side of a newspaper folded
once. There were numbers on it from one
to forty-eight printed in red ink with the
amount of the prize which eneh number
dhuouum investor to printed in black
below tbe number. In one corner of the
chart was the number twenty-eight, with
the inscription under it. not as prominently
printed as the amount at the prizes under
the other numbers, but still quite plain
''You lose all."
In the center of the chart was the num
ber 27. This number was called the Grand
Conditional Advertising prize. O'Brien
explained that this prize was offered only
once in a city, and then to some mnn of
high personal and business standing, who
would rVt the fact that he had won it he
known in order to draw other investors.
No qualifications were required from other
investors, hut any man who was a candi
date for the Grand Conditional Advert isin
$10,000 prize must prove that he was wort h
at least that much money.
Peck thought that this was a better bus
iness than selling houses, and be made an
appointment with Corning to call thenext
day and qualify himself for the Grand
Conditional Advertising prize. In the
meantime he experimented as an ordinary
investor and won forty dollars, which was
The next day Corning and Peck called
on O'Brien, and Peck produced $10,000
worth of bonds and other securities.
O'Brien said lie had no doubt Peck was
gooH for $10,000, as the word of Erastus
Coming's nephew was sufficient for him,
but the rules of his company were strict
and he could not make that an exception,
even in the case of so estimable a man and
one so highly indorsed.
"You see, Mr. Peck," said O'Brien, "we
are sitting here as gent lemen and I know
that it is all right, but I must comply with
the rules of the company and see the
Peck then went down town and had a
bank give him $10,000 on his note. He
took this back to the house and drew bis
cards, which amounted to twenty-seven in
the number of spots, so that he was en
titled to the Grand Conditional Advertis
ing prize, but he produced his money and
Mr. O'Brien started to count it, but find
ing that took some timesaid he would take
Peck's word for it.
"Of course, you understand, Mr. Peck,"
he said, "that this prize has to be drawn
twice to become the property of the owner. '
Peck had not exactly understood that,
but be understood that O'Brien would fix
the cards so that they would come out 27
again, and he let his money stay on the
board. This time the cards came out 28
instead of 27. O'Brien pointed to the pass
age under the 28. "V nil IraiA all '
I pocketed the $10,000.
feck was rattled by what had taken
place. Coming was very sorry, and told
Peck that as soon as he could get down to
the bank the next day he would take out
$10,000 and give it to Peck to make him
good Peck felt almost, satisfied with this,
as he was forty dollars in on the money
he had already won. and lie knew that the
promise of any of the Comings was good
for several $10,000.
Peck and Corning started to walk up to
Peck's bouse and Corning left Peck at his
steps. Then Peck licgan to think, as he
testified on the trial.
"I began to wonder what would become
of my $10,000 if he wasn't Mr. Erastus
Coming's nephew after all."
He kept on wondering all night. The
next day he found out. New York Sun.
