A Mtroos ;andldate .
The democrats of the Twenty-first sen
atorial district made an excellent choice
-when they nominated J. H. Mulligan of
Kewanee for the legislature yesterday.
The Kewanee Star has the following bi
ography of the nominee:
He baa always been most closely iden
tical with the people. Born and reared
ob a farm, he understands the needs of
the farmer and would be found favoring
all legislation in any way helpful to the
fanner. He received a High school edu
. lion in this state and then began work
at grading on lbs railroad. By hard
-work acd faithfulness in every detail of
his work he has worked up from grad
ing to switchman, frotii switchman to
operator and from operator to Btatioa
agent, which position he has held in
Kewanee for the last seven years. Be
ing a hard laboring man himself he is
distinctly the laboring man's candidate,
and it is the laboring men of Eenry
county that are j utting him forward.
That Mr. Mulligan deserves the honor
as universally conceded. For the last
two years he has been a most efficient
member of the township central commit
tee and county central committee. As a
abrewd and far seeing political manager
be has few equals. The democratic vic
tories in Kewanee last year and this are
doe more to his management and hard
work than to any other cause. He has
worked mo it arduously for his partv and
fox his friends, never asking or even ex
pecting reward, many times refusing
honors, wiien accepting them he would
deprive a friend of honor, lie has al
ways looked for some one else's interest
and if elected would look most closely
after the interests of the people. Mr.
Mulligan is well read on current events of
the day and has positive views on all the
great questions before the American peo
ple, tie is a tariff reformer but not a
free trader. He is a man of the people.
He has great power with men because
he thoroughly understands them. His
ability to successfully carry any measure
that he advocates is something wonder-.
Jul. He is fertile in resources. When
his mind is once made up that a measure
ia right be leaves no stone unturned to
have that measure adopted . He knows
jno such word as fail. If elected, which
lie will surely be, he will
oon be as well and favor
ably known to the people of this great
state as be is to the people of Henry
county. He will be known for bis faith
fulness to every duty; be will be known
as the advocate of all wise legislation in
the interests of the people; he will be
known for his opposition to any extrava
gant or unwise measures. He will make
an enviable reputation as a wise, conser
vative legislator, a shrewd, sagacious
He ia a man that will receive the sup
port of every democrat in the district.
He is the very idol of the democracy in
this end of the county. Whatever Mr.
Mulligan says has great weight with the
democrats. He has the full confidence
of bis party. They know that he con
aiders office a public trust to be sacredly
kept. Of all men for thia position Mr.
Hulligan is the man.

Correct 1.1st of Democratic Candidates
on the National and State Tickets.
The following is a correct list of the
candidates on the Democratic national
and state tickets in Illinois. The list is
furnished by the state committee and
may be relied upon as correct. Demo
cratic papers should follow the form and
spelling given here. Many of them now
running the tickets at the head of their
columns have some of the names spelled
wrong, and some of them have the can
didates placed out of their proper order.
It is suggested that they correct these
errors at once, for the public should grow
acquainted with ticket as it will appear
on the official ballot. Compare carefully
and see if you are correct:

The State Outside of Cook.
Republican politicians and newspa
pers continue to claim that the state out
side of Chic ago is as safely Republican
as ever, and that the only danger of
Democratic success lies in the jiossibility
of an increased Democratic vote in Cook
county. The fact is the state outside of
Chicago promises to do its full share of
the work that will produce a Democrat
ic victor- this year. In 18U0 the vote of
the state outside of Cook county showed
the following Democratic pluralities:
For State Treasurer. o.OT.
For State Superintendent of Schools,
For Trustees State University, 10,000.
Members of Congress, 20.711.
Taking the vote for trustees of the
state university which is llie fi:est ;io
on which to base or.r ca'cuhiliois v.t

the state outside of Cimk omntv. Mi,
taking the vote on any of the c.t:i.li l:i:cs
in the state there is not mut-ii c-inn. i
for the Republicans. Of eour-c th-v
claim that these Demoer.;;!.- plur
alities are due to the Republican
having failed to vote and point t tin
fact that no Democratic candidate
1890 received so large a vote as was ca-il
for Cleveland in 1SSS, when Harrison
carried the state by over 20,0M). It is
undoubtedly true that the Democrats
turned out at the polls better in lfOiJ than
did the Republicans, but that they polled
anything like their full vote is a ridicu
lous assertion. The fact is in close coun
ties, close senatorial districts and close
congressional districts both parties polled
a pretty full vote, while in the localities
regarded as hopeless, one way or the
other, a small vote was cast by both
parties, and here is where the shortage
We find in 34 counties in all of which
there was a fight, that the candidates for
trustees of the university and all other
Democratic candidates received more
votes in the off year election of 1890 tlian
Grover Cleveland received in 1888. The
Democratic increase in these 34 counties
on the trustees aggregated nearly 4,000,
and indicates a positive increase in
Democratic sentiment, for an examina
tion of the returns in each case shows
that the Democratic gain is accounted
for by a Republican loss. The fact is,
had there been a fight all along the line
in 1890 as there was in the close districts
and counties where a full vote was
polled, the Democratic gain and Repub
lican loss would have been fully 12,000
votes in the state outside of Cook coun
ty. The man is yet to be heard of who
having voted or sympathized with the
Democrats in 1890 is willing to go back
to the Republicans this year, and there
is little doubt of the Democrats having
a plurality in the state outside of Cook
county, if they get their full vote to the
polls. We fail to see where the Repub
licans can get any comfort out of the
situation in the rural districts. If what
they say of Chicago is true, Illinois will
go Democratic by 20,000.

HIS RECENT SPEECH BEFORE THE
The Eminent Stateaman Reviews the Po
litical Situation and Exposes the Fal
lacy of the' Arguments of the Republi
can Writers and Speakers A Strong;
"Protection does not protect," were
the first words of General Black. "It
does not protect the lawyer; he must
protect himself. It does not protect the
doctor; his bills do that. It does not
protect the blacksmith, whose ringing
hammer has made music for the world
since the days of Tubal Cain. It does
not protect the farmer who stands
among his billowy grain and looks to
the sun and the wind and the rain for
all the blessings he can hope for. It
does not protect the merchant. It does
not protect the children who toil in
sweaters' shops God pity them at 15
cents a day. It does not protect the
laborers of America, as witness the rec
ord of a t housand strikes.
"I have named the whole range of
American industries, and protection
protects none of them. The panic of
1873 came at a time when protection
stood on every headland of American
commerce. I am not here to make a
hard times speech. Coming from Chi
cago today I saw as fair a picture as
heart of American can desire. The
three-fcld strengtli of our nation is ag
riculture, manufacture, commerce. No
Democrat would do an act to injure
either of them. But Democrats would
adopt that policy which will make their
burdens equally borne. We hold that
taxation should be for government alone
and not for the enriching of any citi
zen at the expense of another citizen.
We hold with the supreme court deci- ,
sion which says the taking of anything i
of value from one man to give to an- !
other is robbery.
"Which of you is there who would I
make taxation uneven? Which one
would make it for any purpose other
than the support of government?
Which one would tax or take from one
class to give to any other?
"None. Then welcome you as intol- '
lectual converts to the Democratic fold. '
All we want in this discussion is the
truth. Our fight is against the princi- ;
pies of the protection policy tf the Re-'
publican party, and I leave it to the
middle-aged men of this audience that
it is a new doctrine to l.em. Tliey have
read senators out of their party for hold
ing the texts we Democrats hold this
day to be good tariff doctrine. Never
till 1888 did they hint at their prese nt
heresv. Never till then, and then not
openly, then with a shameful, a coward- I
ly, half-hearted platform. The fruits of
a system, like the fruits of a tree, fur
nish the best means of judging that
system. Unless you do believe that pro
tection made the harvests you must ad
mit that their system is a mistake and a
"That man who produces should en
joy. This country has produced every
year, from ocean to ocean the most
bountiful harvests. Where are the
fruits of those harvesters lodged now?
There are about 4,200 rich men in this
country men who, out of the 60,000,
000. have become in one generation the
millionaires of America. ..A. great Re
publican paper will print their names
and tell how they came to le rich.
Send two copies of that pajer to Mr.
Carnegie, one to his hunting box in
Scotland, the other to his smoky shops
in America, and when he lifts the one
from a Scottish coast he may laugh that
he is a law-made millionaire, but when
he lifts the o. her from the blood-stained
dust of Homestead let him gaze in the
faces of 10,000 men that have not lieen
protected. I have no quarrel with the
millionaire. If he has skill and abil
ity to accumulate I cannot blame him.
But I do not believe our nation was ever
instituted to single out one man or ten
men or 4,200 men and make them rich
"The men who make the Democratic
party are your brothers in every patri
otic work. They are fighting the battles
of humanity. What makes this lieauti-
ful city in the midst of these Illinois
prairies? Free trade among the states.
What makes Chicago great today, there
there on the shores of Lake Michigan,
where the eyes of the world are turning
in surprised wonder? Free trade in
America. Don t tremble, Democrats,
because they tell you if you reform the
tariff you approach free trade. I can
think of a greater calamity than that.
I can see a misfortune greater than the
widening of the blessing till free trade
shall cover the earth as the waters cover
the great deep. Reciprocity is free
trade. It denies it, but it is. Yet, when
James G. Blaine broke the iron lines of
Republicanism and forced reciprocity
upou his party, that party killed him at
Minneapolis and threw him over the
"But we Democrats are not for free
trade. We will levy a tariff on goods
that are brought to our shores till the
needs of our government are met. We
will make a tariff that shall support the
government, though protection may be
an incident. The Republicans will make
a tariff for protection with support of
government as an incident. I hold that
our position is right and eternally right;
and I hold that the doctrine which an
tagonizes us is wrong and eternally
"We have been consistent. We have
madj our faith our platform. We have
chosen tu standard bearer a man who
means by every utterance the truth of
the gospel of tariff reform. For his as
sociate we have chosen a man dear to
your hearts, known to you alL In plat

before you and claim your approval.
"He who fights in the Democratic
party this year lights in the cause of fair

"Another issue. All through the
country you are informed the force bill

it was not, but in very truth the force

been done in a generation to weld a

were no other reason why the Demo
cratic ticket should be elected this year

In 1890 the population of Illinois was
greater by 150,000 than that of Ohio.
Yet in the presidential election two
