MR. CABLE'S CANDIDACY.
He Declines to Stand for Ke-elec
tion Kut His Friends Insist.
A Mlronc Ortkire ana Determination
All Over the Olslriet tm Kro.n
taate Him An.) way.
Today's Chicago Herald contains tbe
following Washington di patch:
Congressman Ben Cable, of Illinois, de
clines to be a candid t:e for re-election.
Though bis constituents have again and
again urged him to stand, and though
there ia little doubt that he could win tbe
contest even in that ropublictn district,
Mr. Cable has decided that he will not
again mike the race. He has so in
formed bis party friends at Rock Island
There is some talk here that if the west
ern headquarters of the democratic na
tional committee should be established
at Cbic-go. as proposed, Mr. Cable
would be invited to take charge of them.
While Mr. Cable has nothing to say on
this score, western democrats in Wash
ington are hoping the national commit
tee will es.ablisu such an office, and that
Cable will be placed in cbarge of it.
There is do man in the national commit
tee who possesses to a greater degree the
confidence of democrats everywhere. If
any man could organize the democracy of
Illinois so as to carry tbe electoral vote
of the state for Cleveland and Stevenson,
Cablo is the man. As an orean.zer and
worker he Las but few equals in the
country. Much regret is expressed here
at Mr. Cable's determination to leave
congress. Though one of toe quiet mem
bers, never anxious to shine in the arena
of debate, he has proved himself strong
in committee and influence upon legisla
tion. He has won a high place in the
house, and in tbe foreign affairs commit
tee is looked upon as one of tbe ablest
membara-ot -tbat important committee.
In one vaf Cable has made himself about
the most "popular man in tbe house.
Notwithstanding tbe positive assertion
thus attributed to Mr. Cable, his friends
are reluctant to accept his declaration
as final. - In fact in every county in the
district democrats are not only with one
accord for. his renomination. but are de
termined that he shall be tendered the
nomination anyway, so strong is the en
dorsement bis course as congressman has
merited . It is truly to be hoped tbe
pressure of the demand for his renomi
nation may incline him to reconsider any
position that he may have assumed con
trary to accepting a renomination, which
will come to him unanimously if left to
his friends throughout the district.

IT CONTAINS NO POISON.
This is the distinguishing
mark of Reid'a German Cough
and Kidney Cure. This is a
greater thing to boast of than
would at first appear to the
reader unacquainted with what
are called standard remedies.
Most of these contain opium in
some form or other and conse
quently must be used with the
greatest caution. In case, for
instance, of a severe at'ack of
croup the mother is tortured by
anxiety If st having rescued the
child from the disease it may
fall a victim to the remedy.
Nothing of this kind is to be
feared with Reid'a German
Cough and Kidney Cure. There
is no dancer from an over dose
Where the malady is acute and
the danger imminent, it can be
given in as large doses as may
be necessary to give relief. A
whole bottle full can be taken
if the case requires it, not only
without danger, but with a pos
itive benefit. This fact that it
contains no poison tells Btrong
ly in favor of this popular med
