Chairman Cable on the results of
' the Recent Elections.
Work Alone Necessary to Carry Illinois
for the Democracy. -The Duty
of the Hour.
Chairman Cable of the western branch
of the democratic national committee, has
Bent f .ut the following in view of the re
suits of the recent elections:
Headquarters Democratic Na
tional Committee Wksiekn Branch.
Chicago, Sept. 21. Bifore the campaign
has fairly opened toe democrats tbrough
oat the west have been electrified bv the
news from Vermont and Maine. Mc
Kinley had been especially importuned to
baraiigue the crowd, and Proctor had ap
pealed to the Green Mountain boys to
roll up an old-fashioned re
publican majority. Anything less
wou'd te a sign of weakness,
Resul', 0.000 republicans refused to vote
for the McKinley idea, and the republi
can majority in Vermont U the smallest
in 25 years. Maine was 6tumped from
'Quoddy Head to Kittery Point." and
from the pine woods to Herring
Got. On the eve of th
election the republican journal
throughout the state sent out a ringing
appeal to stand by the McKinley bill
. and make the voice .of Maine heard
throughout the land, and yet the people
of Maine went to the polls and cut
down the republican majority fully 50
per cent, and that, too. in a full vote
If we take into consideration the polit
ical changes of the last two years, and
if the same ratio of pain holds good on
November 8ih, New York will be carried
by the democracy by a clean 100,000,
Massachnseets by 5.000. Iowa by 10.000,
Michigan . by 20.000, Nebraska by 8.000.
Wisconsin by 12,000 and Illinois by over
40,000. Democrats of Illinois, do you
see your opportunity? You are fighting
for the interest of all the people, and it
is the battle royal against caniiiag. cor
ruption, centralization, plunder, privileges
and paternalism. Let your work be
active, honest, vigorous and persistent.
The democracy of the east ia united. Sen
ator Hill said in his Brooklyn speech on
Monday niaht: The 'old guard' will do
its duty. Look out for the raw recruits.
I belieye that a large majority of the peo
ple of tb is country are convinced of the
rightfulness of democratic principles and
want them to prevail; but the election
will not win itself, and there must be
complete organization. I r;p?at the in
junction I uttered before the democratic
state convention at Albany, in February
last: It is our duty to organize, organ
ize, organize! organize!'
But we can have victory in the west as
well, Illinois can be carried by the de
mocracy and will be if every democrat
does his duty. Success hs now become
a duty. Illinois nust be carried for the
democracy B. T. Cable.
In view of Mr. Cable's sound advice
concerning actiye organization, Judge
Altgeld's canvass (hould be a source of
great inspiration to all democrats. That
the entire democratic state ticket will
win is already conceded. Work and or
ganized effort will make the triumph all
the greater. This is democracy's duty of
