Mr. Blaine's attitude in this campaign
has been compared by some to that of
Roscoe Conkling, but there is a material
digerence between the motives which con
trolled the two man and brought about
their retirement, says the St. Louis Re
public. Conkling quarrelled with a re
publican president over patronage. His
personal pride and overweening arrogance
placed him in a position where he was
the butt of the jeers of the country. He
retained the sympathy only of a small
personal following, while everyone else
was glad to see the downfall of a "boss."
Whatever else Mr. Blaine has been he
has never been a patronage boss-. He has
not thought it consistent with his charac
ter to answer the stories circulated by the
president's subordinates. and whatever the
methods used in compelling him to leave
tho cabinet at a time when it was too
late for him to appeal to the rank and
file of his party, he has borne in silence
all the indignities heaped on him. His
position before the country is far more
respectable than that of Conkling. There
is, indeed, no room for comparison, so
tar apart is the case of Blaine from that
While Piatt, Quy. Dudley and Clark
boh have been won over by Harrison
since he renominated himself, Blaine has
baa kept silence, neither defending him
self from the attacks which were made
on him in Minneapolis and for some
time after the convention, nor attacking
Harrison. This is the attitude he may be
expected to maintain until the end of
Undoubtedly be confidently expects
Harrison's defeat, and, believing it to be
inevitable, he wishes to leave the sole re
sponsibility for it where it belongs with
Harrison bimce'f . . Only through this
course can Blaine become once more a
republican leader. Harrison's defeat,
compossed by Harrison himself, will give
Blaine once more the commanding influ
ence in his party he had before the time
when by his alliance with Harriaon he
put himself and his fortunes at the mercy
of a man who looked upon him as a rival
to be crushed. As the paper quoted con
cludes. "Blaine feels that he can afford to wait
until after November for his yindication,
and be is waiting."
The Republican party claims to have
given the negro his freedom and to hare
given him the suffrage. What it really
tried to do, and has purtially succeeded
in doing, is his transfer from the control
of his former owners to his present
masters, the Republican bosses, and his
vote was added to increase his value. In
short, the Republican party says to the
negro, I gave you your freedom and
vote, but I prottose to hold both of them
in trust from now to eternity.
The present Attorney-General sent an
opinion to the State Board of Equaliza
tion that corporations should pay as
much tax, in proportion to their wealth,
as is paid by the farmers. When he
was a candidate for governor, he re.
ceived fifty votes out of 800. Gov. Fifer
was a corporation attorney when he was
elected, and they wanted to retain him
in his place.
The Republican papers, in comment
ing on the bankruptcy of the "Iron
Hall" insurance concern, tell their read
ers that Gen. Pavey, the present state
auditor and candidate for re-election,
drove this concern out of the state years
ago. If so, why is it that there have
been so many lodges of the order in this
A good authority says that Blaine will
not make any speeches, but that he is
writing a letter for publication. One
Benjamin Harrison would like to have
that letter, and will pledge himself to
carry out the injunction which accom
panied the epist les of the Maine states
man to one Mulligan in the days that are
THE REPUBLICAN PARTY
PROTECT! NG WORKI NGM AN
THE CAMPAIGN OF SLANDER INAUGU
RATED BY REPUBLICANS.
Their Attempts to refeat Judge Altgeld
by Wholesale Ikying How lie Haa
Grown Stronger from Hjr to Iay aa
the Slanders Have Been Refuted.
Judge Altgeld has proved the very
"bullseye" for the shots of the campaign
liar this year, and the ingenuity of this
class of politicians has been taxed to the
utmost in order to provide material on
which the Republican speakers and
orators might feed. First he was an
unarchist, and then a socialist, but both
charges dropped to the ground almost
immediately of their own weight. As
city attorney, as county attorney, as
judge of the superior court he had
proved himself not only a law-abiding
citizen, but a firm upholder and enforcer
of the laws.
The next charge made was that he
had written a pernicious book. This
charge was a boomerang, for it created
a demand for the book that necessitated
the printing of 100,000 copies, and when
the public read it they found in it noth
ing to condemn and much to commend.
Republicans never mention the book
now and no quotation from it is ever
seen in a Republican paper or ever heard
from the lips of a Republican orator.
He was next charged with being a
f.'bel or a copperhead, and when it was
shown that he was a soldier in the
Union army the campaign liars tried by
forgery to prove that he never enlisted.
The official record knocked them out,
and they then tried to show that lie was
theenemy of the soldier and that he
had written an insulting reply to an in
vitation to speak at a soldiers' reunion.
Here they fell down again, for the pub
lished letter contained no insult, and he
did speak at the reuniou and spoke well.
His writings, utterances and actions had
always shown him to be the friend of
the soldier and this friendship did not
begin with his candidacy for office.
The next story told was to the effect
that he was building a $75,000 residence'
with convict lalor. This was stuck to
until it was shown that he was building
no residence. Then the story was ap
plied to the Unity building, of which he
is the principal owner and which was
recently completed. It was promptly
shown that in making contracts for the
erection of this building it was expressly
stipulated that only the highest class of
union lalwr should be employed and
that Judge Altgeld saw jersonally that
the contract was complied with in spirit
and letter. This, too, before he thought
of being a candidate for governor.
He was next charged with being the
enemy of the public schools, but his po
sition on this question was so well
known that the campaign liars pulled
their stories back. .
His record as a .judge was the next
object of attack, but it was found to
compare so favorable with that of other
judges that the attack proved harmless.
He has been charged with being a
drinking, bruising, plug-ugly, who went
from saloon to saloon with a crowd of
loafers in his train and who pandered to
the worst elements in order to gain
votes. His visits to the towns of the
state broke the back of this story, for
the ieople found him to be a quiet, gen
tlemanly, temperate man, who met
them as one citizen meets another and
wiio created a favorable impression.
Hundreds more such stories have been
started and have died in their infancy.
They were not strong enough to with
stand the steady currents of facts that
were poured upon them.
This system of attack on a candidate
provts his strength and the weakness
and desperation of the opposition.
Judge Altgeld has grown stronger day
by day, and the very falsehoods of his
enemies have made him votes by
strengthening him with the independent
voters and fair-minded Republicans.
When Mr. Pearson required an in
crease in th appropriation for the cler
ical help in his office he did not inform
the legislature that he wanted to put a
lot of fellows on the pay-roll to run
around over the state and electioneer
for him. Had he been honest about the
matter the legislature would not have
given him the extra money.
Young Dick Yates' speech is a grand
scheme. After he has talked three hours
the crowd is generally willing to agree
to vote for hint if he will let up.
In 1800 the per capita tax in Illinois
was $7.5)0. In Missouri it was only $4.72.

The question of licensing engineers is
being so agitated in every state in the
union that within a short time, for the
protection of human lives, it will be im
possible for anyone intrusted with steam
to hola or secure a situation without pass
ing a rigid examination and obtaining a
license. Stephenson's Illustrated Practi
cal Test has been published to aid engi
neers preparing to pass such examination,
and as it embraces all the questions asked
on the boiler, pump, engine, dynamo,
Corliss engine, etc., it has already met
with sucb a demand that it is now in its
