nois republicans are explaining
they should explain bow il hap
pens that in ODly nice years of republi
can policy McKinlev mortgages were
filed in Illinois aggregating a sum nearly
three times s great as the assessed value
in 1892 of all the real estate, improved
and unimproved, in the state. How is
this accounted for under tbe "Home
Market" theory T
Quinct Herald: In case the election
of president and vice president should
be thrown into tbe bouse it is a mistake
to suppose that Cleveland and Reid
would be selected. I'he bouse, of
course, would select Cleveland, but the
republican senate would be debarred
from choosing Reid on account of tbe
constitutional provision which prohibits
both tbe president and rice president
coming from the same state. The sen
ate would nave to cbooBe between Stev
enson. Field and Cranfill It is quite
possible, though, that tbe republicans
w uid still endeayor to defeat Steven
son. and would unite their forces on
Field, the people's pirtv nominee. On
tbe whole the democrats bad better make
sure of things by ge'ling a clear majority
in tbe electoral college-.

The Situation In Illinois).
Illinois, says the New York World,
was a democratic state from tbe time of
its admission to the union in 1818 until
Even in the "land-slide" of 1840 it re
mained true. William Henry Harrison
carried the country by a popular majority
of 139.250 and the electoral college by to
174. But Illinois gave her electoral vote
Tan Buren by a popular majority of
It was not till 1860. when the ferment
of civil war was beginning and Abra
ham Lincoln was the republican candi
date, that the state turned against the
It became republican upon the slav
ery question and for 30 years remained
republican upon issues that play no
part in present rolitics rxcept as tra
ditional prejudices of ever-weakening
In 1864 Illinois gave Lincoln a major
ity of 30.675. In 1868 Gen. Grant
swelled this to 51,160. In 1872. the
year of the Greeley fiasco, the state gave
its heaviest republican nrnj )rity of 66,
884. Since that time the republicans have
carried the state in presidential years is

1884 Plurality. ...M4 827. Majority 1.972
18st Plurality. ...,15. Minority 6.C0S
Thus, at the latest presidential elec
tion, although the republicans won the
electoral vote, their long sustained ma
jority was changed to a minority of 6,
500. In 1890 economic questions, well un
derstood, were dominant for the first
time in 30 years, and the state went
democratic for the first time in that
It is significant, too. that thn demo
cratic pluralities in that year were the
heaviest wbere the economic question
was most directly and exclusively in
volved. Tbe democrats won one major
ity and a plurality of four in tbe lower
house of tbe l?gislature. They carried
tbe state ticket by 9,848, and on the to
tal congressional vote which turned ex
clusively upon tariff reform they had a
plurality of 29.821, and elected 14 out of
These are facts of history. They indi
cate clearly that Illinois this year is a
hopefully debateable state. They point
plainly to the democratic duty of con
testing it with all possible determination
The issue of 1892 is the issue of 1890.
It is better understood now than it was
then. Tbe campaign of education has
gone on steadily. Tbe convictions
which made Illinois democratic two
years ago have been broadened and
strengthened. An intelligent people
have thought and observed. Their most
vital interests are concerned in success -One
Illinois democrat is a senator of the
United States, another is the party's can
didate for vice president.
Tbe 24 electoral votes of Illinois
should be fought for and won.
The next president must be a democrat.
Twenty Years Experience
CD. Fredricks, tbe well known pho

"I have been using Allcock's Porous
Plasters for 20 years, and found them
one of the best of family medicines.
Briefly summing up my experience, I say
that when placed on the small of tbe
back Allcck'a Plasters fill the body with
nervous energy, and thus cure fatigue,
brain exhaustion, debility and kidney
difficulties. For women and children I
have found tbem invaluable. They
never irritate tbe skin or cause tbe
slightest pain, but cure sore throat,
coughs, colds, pains in side, back or
chest, ind;ge6tion and bowel coir plaints."

Safe, Sure and Speedy.
No external remedy ever yet devised
has so fully and unquestionably met
these three prime conditions so success
fully as Allcocfc's Porous Plasters. They
are safe because they contain no dele-
terious drugs and are manufactured
upon scientific principles of medicine.
They are sure because nothing goes into
them except ingredients which are ex
actly adapted to the purposes for which
the plaster is required. They are speedy
in their action because their medicinal
qualities go right to their work of re
lieving pain and restoring the natural
and healthy performance of the func
tions of muscles, nerves and skin. Do
not be deceived by misrepresentations.
Ask for Allcock's. and let no solicitation
or explanation induce youto accept a
