Illinois State Register: The Illinois
republican committee fcas been sending

grave mistake of assuming that the re

The Union says: "If the charges made
against Gov. Fifer and the penitentiary
commissioners by John P. Alt geld in his
speeches at Jollet and Rock Island were
true, these men ought every one of tbcm
to be convicts themselves, instead of be
ing in authority over the convicts." Tbere
are a great many people who think jest
aa the Union does. In fact the majority
of the people of the state will so express
themselves next November.
Clarkson in his little speech accept
ing his re-election as president of the
league of republican -clubs made a re
markable statement and proposition.
He claimed that the republican party baa
not been getting its chare of first voters
who come out of the colleges of the
country because they had been instructed
against the doctrine of protection. He
further gave notice that the colleges must
cease teaching the truth or lose their pa
tronage. Clarkson has taken a bigger
job than be can handle. The instructors
in our American colleges are in the habit
of teaching facts and not fallacies, and
furthermore the monopolists cannot pur
chase them nor corrupt them. The safety
of our institutional form of government
lies in the education and intelligence of
the people. And that is the reason that
the men who come forth from our Amer
ican colleges have not been voting the re
publican ticket of late years.
On With the Fight.
Hancock County Pilot.
The congressional campaign may be
said to be 'airly on. From all sections
of the district Mr. Plantz brings satis
factory reports of the feeling of the dem
ocratic party, and the hopes of large
gains throughout the district. Mr.
Plantz' splendid reputation as a man, and
his pleasant appearance wins him friends
-wherever he appears among the people.
But it will take strong campaigning to
win the day. Every democrat should
take off his coat and go in for victory
from now on. The gauntlet is down.
and it will be a battle of brains against
capital, and Mr. Plantz ought to win in
auchaflgbt. The matter lays entirely in
the bands of the democrats. If they
work for bis election be wins, and the
same is true of the whole ticket. Tbe
party never bad a better fighting chance
for victory than tney nave mis year
