Chicago Mail: Ben T. Cable has
started a democratic wave of political
enthusiasm by tbe announcement that
Grover Cleveland is going in make
stumping tour of the northwestern states
in a few weeks. He is going to make at
least one great speech in Chicago. Ben
T. is evidently laying the wires for a
grand democratic campaign in this juris
diction. Cleveland will prove a drawing
card, strong enough at least to probably
draw oat Harrison.
Gladstone the greatest of English
statesmen, said in 1881 in regard to Eng
lish supremacy: "I will say this, that as
long as America adheres to the protec
tive system your commercial supremacy
is secure. Nothing in the world can
wrest it from you while America contin
ues to fetter her own strong arms and
hands, and with these fettered arms is
content to compete with you who are
free in neu'ral markets. As long as
America follows the doctrine now known
a tariff trade you are perfectly safe, and
yon need.not allow any of you.even your
lightest slumbers to be disturbed by the
fear that America will take from you
your commercial supremacy.
The Bushnell Record says that our
democratic Plantz will not thrive in the
republican Marsh. "Perhaps not at
present." says the Aledo Democrat, "for
yon see the vegetation in that Marsh has
become so rank, that it Is beginning to
decay and its obnoxious and pestilential
odors are a constant menace to tbe polit
ical health of this district. We intend
to drain it and after the ooze and slime
bare disappeared we will cultivate it, put
it in the best of otder and there we will
set out our democratic Plantz and he
will flourish like a green bay tree and all
tbe weeds and trash that have so long
encumbered the ground, when turned
tinder, will enrich the soil and cause the
waste places to bring forth much fruit."

JXo more searching analysis of existing
American conditions was ever made than
that made by Mr. Cleveland in bis clos
ing message, that of December .1888, with
out doubt tbe ablest state paper in Amer
ican archives. Plutocra-ry" in Americt
means the control of tbe government, tbe
enactment snd the enforcement of laws
through the power of money. No intelli
gent American will deny that such a plu
tocracy exists, and that tbe jssue now to
be determined is between a plutocratic
and a popular government. "Upon
careful inspection," writes Mr. Cleveland
in summarizing the causes which have
raised this issue, "we fiod the wealth
fniH luxury of our cities mingled with
poverty and wretchedness and unremu
nerative toil. A crowded and constsntly
increasing urbsn population suggests the
imnoverishment of rural sections and dts
content with aericuUural pursuits, we
discover that the fortunes realized bv our
facturers are no longer solelv the
results of sturdy industry and enlight
ened foresight, but that they result from
the discriminating favor of the govern
ment and are largely built upon undue
exactions from the masses of our people,
The gulf between employer and employe
is constantly widening, and classes are
rapidly forming, one comprising the very
rich and powerful, while in another are
found tbe toiling poor. As we view the
irh:rvmiiiM of afr related capital, we
discover the existence of trusts, coonbi
nations and monopolies, while the
citizen is strueelintz far in the rear or is
trampled beneath an iron heel. Corpor
ations, which should be carefully re
strained creatures of the law, are fast oe
coming tbe peoples masters.
The existing situation i injurious to the
health of our entire body politic. It
stifles in those for whose benefit it is per
mitted all patriotic love of country, and
substitutes in its place selfish greed and
grasping avarice. Devotion to American
citizenship for its own sake and for
what it should accomplish as a motive 10
our nation's advancement and the happi
ness of all our people is displaced by the
assumption that the government, instead
of being the embodiment or equality, is
but an instrumentality through which es
pecial and individual advantages are to be
gained. The arrogance of this assump
tion is unconcealed. It appears in tbe
sordid disregard of all but personal inter
ests, in tbe refusal to abate for the bene
fit of others one iota of selfish advantage,
and in combinations to perpetuate such
advantages through efforts to control
legislation and to influence improperly
the suffrages of the people.
Communism is a hateful thing and a
menace to peace and organized govern
ment. But the communism 01 combined
wealth and capital, the outgrowth of
overweening cupidity ana seinsnness.
which insidiously undermines the justice
and the integrity of free institutions,
not less dangerous than the com
munism of oppressed poverty and
toil which, exasperated by injus
tice and discontent, attacks with wild
disorder tbe citadel of rule. He mocks
the people who proposes that the govern
ment shall protect the rich and that they
in turn will care lor the laboring poor.
Any intermediary between the people and
tbeir government, or at least delegation
of the care and protection the govern
ment owes to the humblest citizen, makes
the boast of free institutions a glittering
delusion and tbe pretended boom of
American citizenship a shameless imposition."
Since Mr. Cleveland wrote this the plu
tocracy has dictated a great increase in
taxes and at the expenses of government.
It has inaugurated a policy of paying
out millions annually in subsidies and
bounties direct from the treasury. It has
forced the agricultural states deeper and
deeper into debt. It has asserted a right
to employ mercenaries for use in private
wars against labor. It has demanded
complete control of elections through a
Force bill providing for returning boards
and supervisors to take tbe places or
judges and officers chosen by tbe people.
And after all this and more it comes once
more before the people asserting its right
to control them and to subject their in
herent manhood rights to its assumptions
of money privilege. And on this issue
of popular government Grover Cleveland
is once more at the front 01 the demo
cratic party, challenging tbe judgement
of every enlightened American on the jus
tice of its cause.
Writing; n an English Railway Train. "
It is no use when traveling to try to
write on the knee, or even if you have all
the compartment to yourself, to kneel
down and write with the book upon the
seat. There must be a sort of a buffer be
tween tbe writer and the carriage, or a
sort of adjustable balance to counteract
the continuous jolting of the train. That,
as far as my experience goes, can alone be
found in the arm.
My practice is to hold the book in the
left hand on a pretty thick pad just wide
enough to be clutched firmly between the
thumb and the four fingers. An ordinary
octavo novel is the size and thickness I
prefer. The writing is done with the right
band of course, the body at the same time
being kept from contact with tbe back of
the carriage, and tbe arms being kept
pretty free from the body. In order to
keep tbe band steady it is necessary to al
low the wrist to rest on tbe paper written
upon. The motion of the train is reduced
to a minimum by following these direc
tions and by standing in the middle of the
compartment. London Tit-Bite.

Col.B. F. Marsh is a chronic, as far as
office-holding is concerned.
The republican congressional nominee
in the Eleventh district has beea an office
seeker ever since be was old enough to
desire an office. It seems to have been
an inborn hffl.ciion with him, an affliction.
it might be said, no more to himself than
to his party and his neighbors. It would
be difficult to recall a ticre when political
preferment was to be shown that Col.
Marsh was not in some way a candid-tie.
At the outset bis own party and nei-jn-
bors in Hancock county sought to nip
his budding ambitions and although they
succeeded, and the colonel's aspirations
were severely frost-bitten, he did not be
come entirely discouraged .
In the spring time of the very next
campaign be again began sowing the
seeds in his own little political hothouse.
He nourished them tenderly, but they
were not to bloom or bring forth fruit ia
any measure. And so it has been rig- t
along for the past 30 years. In tbe ol
Eleventh district Marsh was always re
garded as a sort of political nuisance.
and when Rock Island ci-unty was trans
ferred to the Eleventh it became its mi?
fortune to share in tbe tribulations of
the other counties that bad been bored
by Marsh for years before. So far, how
ever, Rock Island county bus not contri
buted to any great extent to th further
ance of the colonel's political ambitions'
It so happened that the first campaign af
ter Rock Island county had a sj in the
question of advancing Mr. Marsh's for
tunes, the McClaughrey faction of bis own
party, which had been fighting him so
long and so desperately, got a foothold
in Marsh's own county of Hancock, and
the result was the overwhelming defeat
of the colonel by Hon. W. H. Neece of
However, a resume of Mr. Marsh's po
litical record will be read with peculiar i-
terest. It shows the number of times he
has triumphed, and the number of times
be has not. Here it is:
In 1860 he succeeded it obtaining tbe
republican nomination for state's attor
ney of Hancock county and was de
In 1869 he was nominated by the re
publicans for member of tbe constitutional
convention and was defeated. 1
In 1874 be made a desperate effort to
secure the republican nomination for con
gress and was defeated.
In 1876 he obtained tbe nomination and
in that year as in 1873 and 1880 be was
Iu 1882 he was again nominated and
In 18S4 be was appointed by Gov.
Olesby a member of the railway and
w trehouse commission of the stale and
Ia 1892 be was a candidate fortbe re
publican nomination for governor and
In 1892 after failing in his higher as
pirations be became a candidate fortbe re
publican nomination for congress. He was
successful bo far, but tbe halt has not yet
been told. When the voice of tbe people
is heard in November it will be a repeti
tion of that which has so often occurred
in tbe past be will be defeated.
The people don't like chronics and
they don't like Marsh.

in writing on graphite, an engineer rec-
omnienus the use of that very valuable
article in some unfamiliar ways. He says
he hns used handhole and manhole gaskets
eight or ten times by carefully smearing
the surface next the boiler shell with
graphite. In packing water glasses, by
putting a little graphite or oil on the gas
ket they would vulcanize as soft as a lamp
wick and retain their elasticity until the
glass changed, when the old rubber could
be removed without trouble.
In the old way the rubber would be
baked as hard as vulcanite and take much
time to dig out. Another use of graphite
is iu putting back the bandhole plate of
plugs in the back connection. All the
soot and ashes should be carefully brushed
away and with a small brush a good coat
of graphite should le laid over the flange.

The manner in which the American peo

tween the Shannon and the Chesapeake is
worthy of the Englishmen they are. Their
feeling was well expressed by one of the
wounded officers when a prisoner: "It
was a gloriously fair, stand up fight. I
fully expected a different result. The
day, however, contrary to expectation, was
nol)Iy won by yourselves, and now behold
how different is our lot; nevertheless, I
hope to live, and should like to try it
again." In later years it is pleasant to
think that Americans constantly expressed
the most generous feelings toward Sir

be ashamed of any military or naval action
fought between themselves, whatever the
result. That is the solitary compensation
for warfare between men of the same race.
