This seem to be a Democratic year.
Bo far everything gives promise of a
victory for Cleveland and .Stevenson and
the redemption from Republican rule of
several states heretofore regarded as im
reg:i;.: ?. the attacks of the Democ
racy. Tii3 fear entertained for a while
that some of the southern states might
drop from the Democratic column lias
disappeared under the force bill pres
sure and even the most sanguine Repub
licans no longer entertain a hope of
gaining anything in that quarter.
THE DOCBTTCL STATES.
The states of New York, Connecticut
and Indiana, usually classed as doubtful,
seem now safe for the Democracy. In
New York Tammany has fallen in line
and is doing good, honest work for the
party while Senator David B. Hill, the
greatest of living politicians, lias opened
the campaign for Cleveland in a speech
which proves his faith in thesucces of
the party and his sincerity in the sup
port of its candidates. The Peck boom
erang lias added to the Jarty strength
not only in the Empire state but every
where and the promptness with which
the Democrats and Independents took
measures for the exposure of hi collu
sion with the tariff monoilists shows
the earnestness and determination which
characterize methods of the tarill re
formers in this contest.
TO THK VICTORS. ETC
Cleveland's declaration that there will
be no delay irf turning the rascals out
and that men who work heartily for
party success are entitled to olitical re
ward has encouraged the Democrats
militant and brought to the aid of the
party inauagen thousand cf workers
who were in the la.t presidential cam
paign idle through fear of being accused
of offensive iartizanl.ip. Their efforts
will ie felt at every step during the
campaign. Ynt, New York is a Knio
cratic fctate this time, and Connecticut
goes with her.
In Indiana, lIurrLons own state, the
Ik-inrx-rats have no doubt of success.
Every day Harrison's weakness grows
more apparent at home and the small
majority with which he carried the
fctate in will le wiped out, with a
good margin on the other side.
In Wisconsin, the Democrats rofuise to
call their fctate doubtful and declare that
they can and will carry it, and the con
ditions are such as to lead to the belief
that the chances are largely in their
It is in our own rtate, however, where
the hardest battle will .km fought over
the electoral ticket. Well posted Repub
licans concede the defeat of Fifer and
bis colleagues on the state ticket and
the party efforts are now directed
toward securing the election of the na
tional and legislative candidates. The
result depends largely upon the getting
out of the vote. Estimates by well
posted politicians and a good poll of
two-thirds of the precincts in the state
compared with the vote cf previous
years, show a positive plurality for
Cleveland and Stevenson even after
making the most liberal deductions fur
' political enthusiasm, errors and doubt
' ful voters. The only thing that can pre
vent the electoral vote of the state being
cast for Cleveland and Stevenson will l.e
too many stay-at-home Democrats on
The Democrats have a fine state or
ganization, with a good corps of workers
and speakers, while in nearly every
county a close and perfect system of or
ganization has been adopted which
promises the best results. There are no
factional fights in the organization and
. the Democrats of Illinois show a har
mony of feeling and a unity of action
seldom seen in a political campaign.

constant injunction, the constant com
mand and the constant prayer of the
atete committee . to the county, town
and school district organizations. Be

FOR STATE OIT1CEKS.
As a can.J:-i..to f r governor JuJge
Altgv-ld has developed a strength which
surprises even his tcot sanguine admir
ers. His unique canvass of the Hate
brought him in close contact with the
IoopIe and ha.? given them a confidence
in him that ha rever lfore ljeeuhown
toward a cauJidate. His speeches mark
him as a maa away above the average
tioth as a statesman and a practical
manager of public affairs, and that he
will make a good governor every fair
minded man believes. He will be
elected. That is now evident. His
btrength is not alone with the German
Lutherans, but with all people. Thou
sand of Republicans of all classes ha e
grown tired of ring rule in Illinois and
will vote for AltgeM in order to bteak
up the combine that has for years need
our state boards and state institutions
for the purpose of keeping themselves in
office and making money out of the
peola. With Fifer are the other nom
inees on the state ticket. They were
named for office by the ring that ruled
the Republican state convention, a body
made up largely of 6tate officials, em
ploye and the beneficiary of the Fifer
syatem of ttate government. They will
go down with their leader, for they are
recognized as belonging to the same
gang. Realizing their desperate Bitua
ation eacli is trying to ehct himself at
the expense of the others and their at
tempts to trade each other off are
scarcely concealed by the commonest
forms of fohticai trickery. The Fifer
camp is like a den of wolves shut in by
the hunters. As they grow hungrier the
weak are devoured by the strong and
fill are destroyed in the struggle for ex
istence. IN COOK COUNTY.
The Cook county Iv-mocrats were
never in better shajie than in this cam
paign. The county ticket is a good cne
and is proving acceptable to the j-eople.
The organization is thorough and there
is a complete atisenee of ki-kers. The
Democratic and Independent news
papers, both English and German, are
in line for the whole ticket and are
doing good work. The ill of the
county is nearly complete and shows
large gains in every quarter of the city.
The accuracy of this j-oll might be
doubted in some ca.ses were it not for the
fact that it is confirmed by the poll
maile by the Republicans. The county
will give the entire ticket a handsome
THE NATIONAL. BRANCH.
The branch headquarters of the na
tional committee established in Chicago
is doing good work for the party in the
way of collecting campaign funds, fur
nishing speakers and distributing cam
paign literature. Its establishment in
Chicago proves tile faith held by . the
national committee in the result in
. THK FEOPLE'S PARTY.
It was thought for awliile that the
People's party would hurt the Democrats
in this state, but this fear is disappear
ing. While it is true that a majority of
the People's party were formerly Demo
crats, yet the fact that they see the op
portunity to defeat the Republicans is
bringing them back rapidly, and the
further fact that the Republican organ
ization is paying the expenses of the
People's organizers in Democratic coun
ties is becoming apparent to all and in
dicates the interests to be served by the
movement, an interest not at all favor
able to People's principles.
The Prohibitionists are well organized
and claim they will poll 100,000 votes.
This is a larger claim than the old par
ties are willing to admit, but that there
will be a big increase in the Prohibition
vote no one doubts. The majority of
the increase will come from the Repub
lican party, as a matter of course.
The Democrats hope to elect a major
ity of congressmen in the state. . In ad
dition to the two congressmen at large
and two members from Cook county
they regard the 9th, 12th, 13th, 16th,
17th, 18th and 19th as safe, while in an
other of the Cook county districts in the
6th, 10th, 11th, 14th and 15th the chances
of winning arc in our favor.
There will be a bard fight for the con
trol of the legislature. While that body
will not elect a United State senator,
yet it will apportion the ftate in congres
sional and legislative districts and each
party is anxious to gain the advantage
wbich control oilers. The state was
districted by the IVpublicans in their
own interest Urn years ago and this gives
them an apparent advantage. However,
this advantage is more apparent than
real, for the gain in Democratic senti
ment and the increase and movement in
population in many of the districts has
lessened the hoj-e of Republican success.
In fact, there are to-day more districts
safe for the Democrats than for the Re
publicans. In the close districts the
school question will help the Democrats
and they have a reasonable certainty of
a majority in the house. In the senate
the Democrats will have a majority.
They liave 15 hold-overs while the Re
publicans have but 11, and nothing but
pome unforseen accident can prevent
them from electing enough senators to
give them the control.
MONEY AGAINST PATRIOTISM.
The Republicans have much the most
money to ue in the campaign, and they
are using it freely, but so fur the Demo
crats, working for love of party, have
distanced the paid employes of the pro
tection monopoly. It is shown that one
good man who works for his party's
good, without fee or wages, accomplishes
more than a dozen venal mercenaries.
There are now in the state over twelve
thousand Democrats actively engaged
in the work of organization, and they
are working without pay and many of
them without hojse of future reward.
SEE TO IT.
There seems to be nothing in the way
of complete Democratic success in Illi
nois unless it be the failure f the party
to poll its full vote. Every Democrat
should regard himself as a committee of
one to see that the full party vote in his
Locality be cast early in the day. One
stay-at-home Democrat in each school
district means a lobs of twelve thousand
votes in the state. See that they are all
In th Hondas of Trnnt.
There is an interdependence between
the McKinleyized Republican party and
the trusts. The trusts supply the funds
by which the Republican party is to be
returned to power, and the party hopes
to pass the force bill, surround the bal
lot loxes in the southern states with
bayonets and maintain itself perpetually
in power. In the language of the New
York Tribune, there are 100 tariff meas
ures in the force bill. Jo voter who ob
jects to the domination of trusts and
monopolies can vote to return the Re
publican party to power. The larty is
in the bondage of trusts and is willing to
subverse the lilerties of the peopb tc
permit their masters to amass wealth at
the expense of the toiling millions.
Utica (X. Y.) Observer.
Ergo. Tot for Cleveland.
No wonder people read Democratic
more than Republican newspapers! The
real question with the old soldiers this
year is, "How shall we vote in order to
get our pension money? The govern
ment lias recently defaulted in the pay
ment of pensions, and unless an eco
nomical Democratic administration
shall succeed to that of Harrison the
government will be unable to pay its
pensioners. Sioua City (la.) Tribune.
The fact that Senator Shelby M.
Cullom is at home making speeches
does not necessarily indicate that he
wants to see Fifer elected governor. He
only wants to save his pre-emption
rights on the office of United States sen
ator. An honest enforcement of the revenue
I.t.vs of ths state would relieve the
l:.r.uers of two-thirds of the taxes they
now pay. But there will be no suh en
forcement while Pavey remains state
