of "the grata era" of Spanish occupation,
and depicts with vivid brilliancy the
manners, amusements, passions, and in

MR. HARRISON GOES SHOOTING AND FISHING.
REVIVAL OF THIS UNAMERICAN OR
GANIZATION IN ILLINOIS.
Tba Republican Leaders and Candidates
Fashing: It In the Hope of Reaping; a
Political Benefit Its Alms and Objects
Clearly Shown I'p.
The desperate condition of the Repub
lican party in Illinois, is shown by its
action in fostering the numerous Know
nothing organizations that have recent
ly sprung into existence. In Chicago
this organization numbers several thous
and members, and in the other cities of
the state societies opposed to foreign
born and Catholic citizens holding office
or voting are being organized. The
Republican party leaders, and most of
their candidates are behind this move
ment, and some of them are said to be
members of the organization. It works
under various names and titles but all
have the same general object in view.
The order is founded on the principles
of the old Knownothing society which
flourished more than a generation ago,
and its objects may be best explained by
the following extract from the constitu
tion of that societv.
"The object of this organization shall
be to protect every American citizen in
the legal and proper exercise of all his
civil and religious rights and privileges ;
to resist the insidious policy of the
thurch of Rome, and all other foreign
influences against our republican insti
tutions in all lawful wavs ; to place in
all offices of honor, trust, or profit, in
the gift of the people, or bv appoint
ment, none but native born Protestant
citizens, and to protect, preserve and up
hold the union of these states and the
constitution of the same.
"A person to become a member of any
subordinate council must be 21 years of
age; he must believe in the existence of
a supreme being as the creator and pre
server of the universe. He must be a
native born citizen ; a Protestant, either
born of Protestant parents or reared un
der Protestant influences, and not united
in marriage with a Roman Catholic;
provided, nevertheless, that in this
last resiect, the state, district,
or territorial councils shall be author
ised to so construct their respective con
stitutions as shall best promote the in
terests of the American cause in their
several jurisdictions; and provided,
moreover, that no member who may
have a Roman Catholic wife shall be eli
gible to office in this order; and pro
vided, further, should any state, dis
trict or territorial council prefer the
words, 'Roman Catholic, as a disqualifi
cation to meml)ership, in place of 'Pro
testant' as a qualification, they may so
consider this constitution and covern
their action accordingly."
It seems strange that at this day a
great party should take s.ich desrerate
chances as the Republican party is do
ing l y endorsing such sentiments, in the
bare hoie of holding the reins of gov
ernment for another term. Defeat on
old lines would be more honorable to
the party as a whole and to its individ
In some localities a few Democrats
were at lirst deluded into joining the or
ganization, but the bulk of the member
ship has been drawn from the Republi
can party. Democrats, discovering its
objects, are leaving it, and new converts
among Democrats are very rare. While
calling itself American it is most un-
American in its objects, and is conse
quently undemocratic and dangerous.
Gov. Fifor's attempt to pose as the
friend of the laboring people is one of
the most comical sectacles ever pro
duced in political history. It is said that
he has actually worked himself up to the
point of believing that he does like a
man because-4ie works. For instance, a
couple of years ago, in a speech in
Quincy, he announced himself in favor
of female suffrage. At Joliet a few
months ago lie made a speech full of
socialistic sentiments, and at other times
and places he lias made wild breaks in
directions that lie thought would make
him popular. No wonder then that he
has taken this new shoot so foreign to
his record, this scramble after the votes
of the men who work for a living.
Open the Hook.
The state institutions of Illinois have
been under Republican control for more
than a generation, and during that time
all attempts to get any specific informa
tion as to their management have proved
unavailing. Complaints have been made
again and again but somehow the inves-
tiganon gets into tne nanas oi tne oiate
Board of Charities where it sleeps for
ever. A change in the state administra
tion would at least give the public an
oppertunity of finding out what has been
done with all the money they have paid
in state taxes for so many years.
The protective tariff has killed the
prosperity of the country artisan. The
country blacksmith, the shoemaker, the
wagonmaker, the cooper, the ropemaker
and kindred crafts have seen the end of
their prosperity. Their sons instead of
succeeding to a fair business have in
each case to hunt for employment in
some great factory.
J EDGE" WILLET'S VISITOR.
New Hampshire Town Is ITot
Troubled with Peddlers.
Bascomb Flagg, familiarly known as
"Bask," was the postmaster in a small
town of northern New Hampshire, and
having lived in one place and held one of
fice for over thirty years he knew by heart
most of the town history and that of its
Individual inhabitants, and was ready to
reel off anecdotes on slight provocation.
"Is the tramp law strictly enforced here?"
Inquired a st rancer who had been stopping
at the inn for a few days, and lingering for
a little chat with "Bask" after the morn
ing meal was distributed.
"I'll tell ye a leetle somcthin learin on
thet p'int ef ye want I should," said Mr.
Flacg, settling himself in an easy, unoffi
cial attitude on the broken backed chair
which he commonly occupied in times of
"Just what. I hoped you'd do," replied
the other, seating himself comfortably on a
three legged stool, known as the "visitin
"We ain't had a tramp inside the limits
o' this taownship fer above six years," be
gan the postmaster impressively. And he
added after a slight pause: "The last one
was a feller thet's known amongst every
body in this region es 'Jedge Willet's
vis'tor.' Ye see. it come abaout this way:
"Ther was this man come ter the Centre
Village one day, and hedn't s' much es a
box o' stove polish on him ter signify thet
he hed any reg'ler callin. He was a tur
rible ongainly, cur'as appear! n chap, too,
an his clothes, what ther was of 'em, was
considduble the wuss fer wear. But he
did cuttinly not look ter be hungry. I
suspicioned thet he'd hed a squar' meal
over't the Widder Sparking, in th' East
"Well, 'twas a kind of a coolish day,
'long in the fore part of September, an I
kep' the man engaged in conversin while
my eon Abe he stepped over ter the jedge's
an fetched him over here. An es the fel
ler couldn't give no 'caountof himself thet
was what ye might call anyways likely,
an seemed Inclined ter be kind of ugly an
fisty, an 'twas gettln toward night, and
he warn't seeminly inclined ter move on,
why Abe an the jedge they jest clapped
him inter the lockup.
"Well, naow, ye see," said Mr. Flagg,
with an appreciative chuckle, "the jedge
was a master hand ter fergit, an the nex'
mornln, bright an early, he'd planned an
laid aout to take his fam'ly ter Spotville
ter spend the day with his brother's folk;
an they went, and the jedge took the lock
up key in his pocket an never give a
thought ter thet tramp.
" 'Twas a fair day es ever was, an the
Willetaes come home by moon, singin es
lively an pleasant es could be. But es the
jedge was gettin aout o' the kerridge he
see my Abe loiterin along on th' other Bide
o' the road, an then he minded 'baout thet
tramp. He was a kindly man then, es
naow, an always lib'ral; an he jest th rowed
them reins at Nathan Gibson he was
hired out ter the jedge thet year an tore
fer thet lockup, Abe runnin alongside, es
ye may say.
"It was In a kind of an aout-o'-the-way
spot, quite a piece up thet lonesome mill
road, and when they come near they could
hear thet man groan in, Abe said, like
ev'rythin. Well, they unlocked the door,
an the jedge sent Abe back ter the haouse
ter tell Nathan ter fetch the bosses over,
an they kind o' half h'isted thet man inter
the kerridge, an driv him straight to the
jedge's. An the jedge, he hed him right
inter the dlnin room, an fed him up, an
lodged him in a good spare room over night,
an give him a good breakfast an a dollar
in the mornin, an sent him off.
"The man 'llaowed he hed a leetle
mudgln of a dinner et the Widder Spar kins'
thet fust day, 'baout 11 in the mornin, but
he seemed all wilted daown an peaked.
An bowsomever he managed ter spread th'
word nobody knows," concluded Mr. Flagg
meditatively, "but th' fact remains thet
we ain't hed a tramp sence thet day.
"One arternoon ther was a kind of a ped
dler come in two years or so back but be
asked, casual-like, ef Jedge Willet lived
here, an when I told him 'yes,' he said 1 s
must be pushin on ter the Corner, fer it
looked like rain, an he was gone 'fore I
hed time ter ask him any questions."
The Republican policy is to protect
manufacturers by taxing imported
goods, but to grind down wages by ad
mitting' all of the foreign laborers who
may be "encouraged" to cou by the
manufacturers. -Moordotslat s.:ps
