"Iniquities of the Protection Hoc trine -What
Judge Gresham's Change of Views
Means-Tonight's Meeting in Moline
Hon. William M. Springer, chairman of
I the WT8 and means committee of the
j house of representatives, arrived at the
UirperlAEt night, and during the evening
and this morning received a number of
democratic and personal friends. An
Argus reporter was among Mr. Springer's
callers this morning, and to the scribe
Mr. Spricgtr chatted freely of the situa
tion politically speaking.
"I Lave been through the northern
portion of tt e
state," he said.
"Amboy, Mt. Car
been my last stops
and the indications,
are very favorable
'o democratic sue
o.ss. I have come
to this conclusion
not only upon the
w. mt- RPRraacB. results of personal
interviews, but upon the feet of our
meetings being-o well attended. Peos
pie evince a greater interest in the tarifi
question than they did four years ago, of
even two years ago.
Republicans Are Interested.
"I note as especially remarkable the
large cumber of republicans who attend
my meetings. Probably one hilf of my
audiences have been republicans, accord
ing to information given me. This inter
est on the part of. the reputlicans is quite
marked and noteworthy as well, as here
tofore we have been speaking chiefly to
our own friends. But this year they come
out to our tceetings, listen sttentively.and
pretty generally stay through. Realizing
j this I am always guarded not to say any
. th'ng that will be e ffensive to them. My
aim is tirnnlv to impress them with the
error cf their position on economic quce
tions of Government, and to pre&ent the
practical sideof the question intelligently
Desires 'Workingmen to Hear Him.
"I des.re the workingmen of Rock Isl
anl and Moline to attend our meeting at
Moline tonight," said Mr. Springer after
a pause, "in order that we may show
them conclusively and clearly their rela
tions to these economic questions, and
that they are standing in their own light
by resitting the democraus party, and
th.t protection is not doing them any
good. Our policy will be first to give
free miteriala to manufacturers, 60 thit
the cost of production will bs less, with
out the poseioility of reducing wages
and wilh the probability of increasing
them and still making larger profits."
Practical View of the Prospect.
Of the prospects throughout the coun
try Mr. Springer conversed very enthusi
astically. "Eveiy day" he said, "makts
it clearer that President Harrison will not
get the electoral vote of Kansas. Nebras
ka, Colorado, Nevada. Wyoming" and
North Dakota, and it is more than prob
able that he will Iobc South Dakota,
Montana and Idaho. There are more than
40 electoral votes in these states which
have heretofore been conceded to the re
nnhiix.na which will in all
probability give their electoral
votes to fusion electors, most of whom
will Tote for Weaver. - So that even if
Harrison should carry "New York state
and Indiana, as he dil four years ago. the
election would then be thrown into the
house of representatives where Cleveland
would be elected, as the present house
would elect in that event. But this U
the darkest side of the situation so far as
the democrats are concerned. I regard
as certain democratic states: The solid
souths Connecticut, New York, New Jer
sey, Indiana, Wisconsin and six electoral
votes in M ichigan . This will elect Cleve
Und and Stevenson by a large majority.
Further, I regard the chances more than
even in favor of Cleveland in Massachu
setts and Illinois, while Iowa is as likely
to go for Cleveland as for Harrison. Two
years ago on the tariff question, princi
pally, we carrind that Btate by over 9.000
maiority for Boies, and this year we
think our chances as much improved
over two years ago."
Significance of Judge Oresham'i Position.
Asked how he regarded Judge Gresh
am's change of position, Mr. Springer
replied: "I am not surprised, but highly
gratified at the position taken by Judge
Gresham. He has favored tariff reform
for many years, and has been
especially opposed to the McKinley bill.
He is acting with perfect consistency in
supporting Cleveland, and his great ju
dicial ability and high personal character
will bring thousands of votes all over
the country to the democratic party . Re
pnblicans of Charar-ter and respectability
will no longer hesitate to follow the ex
ample of such a man as this, knowing
that there must Le very strong and suffi
cient reason or Judge Gresham would not
take the position which he will now pur
Pleased With Campaign Work.
Referring to an allusion to the ener
getic work of the western branch of the
national democratic committee under
Mr. Cable's charge, Mr. Springer ex
pressed himself as much pleased with the
effect of the same. "The situation is ex
ceedingly favorable to the democrats,"
Le said. "Indeed the outlook could not

Prospects For Democratic Vic
tory in November.
nVE STATES ARE IN LINE.
Chairman Cable Expresses Himself on the
Outlook Most Encouraging ' Reports
From Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan
and Minnesota Vigorous Work Being
The Chicago Evening Post of last
evening has the following:
That the western branch of the demo
cratic national committee is accomplish
ing much good is evident from the ex
pressions of satisfaction and confidence
used by the committeeman, Ben Cable
when speaking today of the pros pec s for
democratic success in the west. The
stales consigned to the care and energy
of Mr. Cable and his lieutenants are Illi
nois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan and
Minnesota. From each of these states
there comes to the headquarters in the
Tnity building the most encouraging re
ports While no complete canvass has
been made of the states named, enough,
it is claimed, is known to justify the
most sanguine hopes of the democratic
We are assured that the prospects are
bright in Iowa," said Mr. Cable.
"National Committeeman J. J. Richard
son, of Iowa, was with me until 6 o'clock
last night. He told me that there is
every reason to suppose that the dem
ocratic ticket will carry Iowa. Mr. Rich
ardson is thorouzhly familiar with tbe
condition of politics in his state and his
assertions are based on knowledge.
Says Wisconsin Is Assured.
"Mr. Wall, of Wisconsin, was here re
cently. From reports received from all
parts of the state, there seems to be no
reason to doubt tbe complete success in
Wisconsin of tbe democratic national,
state and legislative tickets. Mr. Wall
says they will take care of the whole
line there The accessions to the demo
cracy of two years ago have not been re
duced. There will be no defections in
the ranks. I think it will be safe to
count on Wisconsin as a democratic
"From Michigan we have equally
cheering advices. National Committee
man Cnmpau is a 'bustler,' and creat
work is being done in his state. We are
certain of eight of the electoral votes of
Michigan, and it is not improbable that
we will win several more I have not seen
Mr. Campau recently, but his letters are
reassuring and predict success.
'''Louis Baker, chairman cf the state
central committee of Minnesota, tells me
that a determined fight is being made in
ihat stato to win for tbe democracy. The
vote of the state will be split into three
parts. The alliance people, Mr. Baker
says, will poll many votes, rnd the
greater part of the third prtj's strength
will be a loss to the republicans. The
third party will not hurt the democrats
nearly so much as it will deplete tbe re
publican ranks. Our party stands solid.
The democrats bave more than a fighting
chaDce in Minnesota they have the
brightest prospects for success.
Sltuat ion in Illinois.
"There are rigns of life in Illinois,"
continued Mr. Casle, smilinsrlv. "Most
vigorous work is being done in this state
How badly the republicans feel about
the outlook can be inferred from tbe
noise they make over it in their journals.
I wish to say, too, that the statement sent
to republican newspapers from Now
York that there is a difference of opin
ion or disagreement between tbe na'ional
commituc and the Illinois state central
committee, is utterly withou foundation
There is no jealousy between the differ
ent caa paign committee?. Ice only
rivalry is the generous one of striving to
sec wno can do the most for the whole
ticket state and national. Tber is no
disposi'ion on the part of Mr. Altceld
or his friends to make the national ticket
secondarv to the state ticket. The fur
ther intimation in tbe same 6tory that the
national committee will send a commis
sion here to investigate Judye Altceld,
and tbe assertion that the national com
mittee thinks that Altgeld is trying to win
at the expense of Cleveland, is a fabrica
tion that grew within the brain of the
man who wrote tbe story
