The returns from Florida as well as
the Georgia state elections form an ob
ject lesson to those who have allowed
themselves to believe that the nnholy al
liance between the republicans and peo
ple's party would result in carrying any
southern state against the regular demo
cratic ticket. They know better now.
8o long as there is any danger of na
tional legislation in the nature of the

solidly democratic. Home rule is always

Ox Patrick Egan's return from Chili it
was reported that he had had an inter

that he would do all he could for the

however, contains the following New
York dispatch which shows that the
Maine man is not yet entirely persuaded,
although he Is at present the guest of
the Tice-presidential nominee:
From a reliable source it was ascer
tained at republican headquarters that a
delegation would ie sent down to Maine
to Mr. Blaine and aek him to go into the
campaign. As Cullom is the nearest man
to Blaine among the managers of the
republican canvass, it is said that be will

with a prospect that between now and

elect five congressmen. Our success
with the electoral ticket depends on the
registration. We are doing all we can
to whoop it op and get a full registra

I think, will be to the benefit o the dem

JUDGE AITGELD'S SPEECH TO THE
OLD SOLDIERS AT OLNEY.
A Review f the War Period The Results
of the Conflict and the Duty of the Coun
try Toward Tfaoae Who Participated
"About thirty years ago there was
seen one of the grandest and most awful
spectacles ever witnessed upon the earth
one of the largest navies ever known
stretched along and blockaded over 2,000
miles of Beaco&st At the same time up
ward of 1,000,000 men. divided in to great
araiieSj formed an almost unbroken line
."rom Chesapeake bay nearly across the
continent down to the shores of Mexico.
The men comprising this great navy and
forming these great armies stepped to
the same music. They were moved by
one common impulse not plunder, not
adventure, not aggrandizement, not con
quest, but one sentiment actuated them
all. That was 'This Union Forever.
But one resolve ran through these lines
as they stretched along and across the
continent, and that was that the flag
that floats above us must be protected.
'Who were these men and whence
came they? They were not janizaries;
they were not slaves ; they were not
hirelings ; they were not adventurers.
They were freemen and the sons of free
men ; they were American citizens, and
if it was one of the greatest honors
known to be a Roman citizen it was a
far greater honor to be a citizen of the
greatest republic on earth.
FROM THE HOMES OF FREEMEX.
"These men came from the occupa
tions of freemen, came from the homes
of freemen, from the shops, the fields,
the stores, the schoolhouses, the mines,
and the pulpits of the land. Two and a
half millions from first to last marched
from the north to the south. No state
in the Union gave the flower of its youth
and the strong arm of its men more
freely than did the state of Illinois, and
this is especially true of this section of
the state. Two and a half millions from
first to last left their homes, left every
thing that was dear upon earth, and
marched to the scene of war, and the
numerous soldiers monuments that I
find all over this country, rearing their
heads toward heaven as though silently
guarding the field of fame and watching
over the graves of patriots, proclaim to
the world that hundreds of thousands of
those who went have not returned and
will return no more forever.
They lie in the fields, they rest in
the pine groves, they moulder in the
swamps and dark ravines of the south,
they care for neither friend nor f cm? man.
neither the hand of man nor the kiss of
woman, they sleep the sleep that knows
no breaking, they dream no more eff
battlefields; no more of days of danger
and nights of waking. Wrapped in
pale elysian mists they will sleep on
while time endures. When they were
falling victims to disease and to the
bullets of the enemy, and as from time
to time the messages reached the homes
in the north stating that all was over,
how many wore there all over this land
who in the anguish of their souls cried
out: 'All my heart is buried with thee,
all thoughts go onward with theer
TO THE LIVING.
"Now, you lived to return to your
homes and your former occupations, you
lived to see the day dawn, you lived to
see the glow of a new era on the eastern
sky, you lived to see this great country
take a forward bound in education, in
intelligence, in manufacture, in railroad
building, in the development of cities,
in everything that makes a country
great, such as had never been witnessed
on earth. You lived to see a republic
greater than man ever dreamed of. Yon
lived to see the shackle stricken from
4,000.000 of slaves, yea, you have lived
to see new troubles arise that may be
more difficult of solution than was the
slave question. Economic and industrial
difficulties have arisen of so serious a
character that there are good citizens
who feel gloomy over the outcome, who
are in doubt whether we shall have in
this country a plutocracy created largely
by governmental aid, haughty, unrea
sonable, domineering, and protected by
the bayonet, or whether we shall have
anarchy, bloodshed, and general de
struction and ruin, or lastly, whether we
may find a way and will to subject both
the plutocrat and his victim as well as
the wild anarchist to the reign of law;
shall have the la-v arise superior and
above every difficulty, guardingand con
serving the accumulations and the civili
zation of centuries on the one hand and
protect the poor, the weak, and the
helpless on the other.
"It may be a sore trial for Republican
institutions, but I hope I believe that
the good sense and the intelligence of
the American people, those whom we
may call the non-combatants, will be
equal to the emergency, and, instead of
sinking into despotism on the one hand
or drifting into civil strife on the other,
the republic may take a new bound for
ward and reach yet higher planes of
THEIR WORK IS DONE.
"But these ar chiefly questions for
the younger generation to settle. You
did your work well. The result of your
work was the establishment of liberty
for all, and let us hope that the coming
generation wjll be equally happy in its
efforts. The idea of those who marched
aide by aide in the great conflict, who in
common endured the hardships and faced
the perils of war, and who yet survive,
I say the idea of their getting together
annually in social reunion, 'reviving old
memories, talking over old times, grasp
ing the hands of comrades whom they
love, is a beautiful idea. I can think of
nothing that will give an old veteran
mora pleasure than in this way to meet
his old comrades. There is not much to
my soldier record to make a fuss about.
X languished in no prison, I carry no
rebel lead in me, I hava no ulcerating
wound received upon the battlefield.
But while this is tree, I did soldier
enough to know what it means. I know
something about the exposure incident
to that life. X have seen men fall down
in their tracks from exhaustion, I have
seen them wasting away in the hospitals,
I have seen them sleeping in swamps. I
have seen them subjected to almost every
kind of exposure, where they contracted
diseases which they would carry with
them for life and which must shorten
their days, and I also know something
of the sacrifices which these men made
when leaving home and I feel that they
bhculd have justice done them.
JUSTICE FOR THK SOLDIER.
"At the beginning of the war the gov
ernment needed money and in order to
raise it issued bonds, which it sold to the
money classes at a little over 60 cents on
the dollar, and when the war was over it
was decided that the honor of the gov
ernment would require that these bonds
should not only be paid in full but
should be paid in gold, and I say that if
the honor of the government required
that those rich men who had loaned the
government with which to prosecute the
war should be paid nearly $.2 for each
one they loaned, and should be paid that
in gold, then the honor of the govern
ment as well as good faith and justice
and equity required that those men who
had left their homes and imperiled their
lives in order that the government might
be saved, so that he could pay anything,
should have at least dollar for dollar.
"Sorne years ago, when I had just
been elected judge of the superior court
of Chicago, the publishers of a soldiers'
newBjiaper requested me to publish my
views on the pension question, and I did
60, considering the question from the
standpoint of what justice, fair dealing
between mau and man and between
government and man required, and in
sisted that the soldier should be made
whole, that, if practicable to do so, he
should have dollar for dollar for the
actual loss he had sustained in money,
in limb, or in health; that, while the
government cannot pay for patriotism,
that while patriotism cannot be estimat
ed in dollars and cents, and is above all
money considerations, that while the
government cannot pay for the anguish,
the heartaches incident to going into the
war, while it cannot pay for the spirit of
patriotism which promptly drops all
private affairs and private business and
responds to the call of the country and
marches to the field without promise of
reward and not knowing whether he
will ever return, the government can
pay and should pay for those losses that
can be estimated and ascertained in
dollars and cents; that, when property
is taken by the government, it always
makes compensation, when money is
loaned it not only pays it back, but pays
a large bonus; therefore when the high
est kind of service is rendered, service
which requires the greatest possible sac
rifices known to man, the government
should extend the proper recognition.
HIS VIEWS THEN AND NOW.
" These were my views then, they are
my views now. The publication con
taining them was circulated over the
country and was used before congress.
When the gallant Capt. Wallace Foster
of Indianapolis, Ind., was making his
fight for justice to the deaf and dumb
soldiers I repeatedly gave him what
assistance I could before the national
congress. It may surprise some of you
to know that until a few years ago a
man who is deaf and dumb received but
f IS a month pension, although if thrown
out upon his resources it was impossible
for him to make a living.
M Now I wish to say that the old sol
diers owe me nothing. I have no claim
upon them. What I did was done in the
cause of justice and fair dealing, and
work thus done creates no debt, creates
no obligation. I simply recognize the
great service done, the great suffering
endured by the soldiers. I am satisfied
that these organizations not only give a
great deal of pleasure, but they have
been the means of extorting more equit
able tnatment from the hands of con
gress, and if they are kept up for the
purpose for which they were created,
a social reunion, they will continue to
be both pleasant and mutually protec
tive in their character, but if the time
should come when they are run by men
who have been described as being invisi
ble in war and invincible in peace men
who never saw the enemy, who followed
the baggage trains of the American
armies, or if they shall be controlled by
a few men who, although they did see
actual service, are now forever rehearsing
with the view of getting the old soldiers
to help them to fat office then the use
fullness of the order ceases.
" Men who are brave usually do not
talk much, and the great majority of
the old veterans who are carrying rebel
lead in their bodies or suffering from
incurable wounds are not making great
noises. The men who are engaged in
doing that are men who have found it
profitable to do so. Now I will say to
you, go on with your reunions, enjoy
the days that are lft you, keep your
organization above the domain of poli
tics, and you will have not only the
respect, but the good will, the good
wishe. and the God-bless-yous of all
Do Tour Work.
Illinois Democrats should not worry
their heads over the New York or
Indiana election. The Democrats in
these states will take care of their own.
What we need to do is to take care of
our own state, and furthermore let no
man try to spread over too much terri
tory. Most of us can find enough to do
at home. The man who sees that every
Democratic vote in his school district is
cast and secures one Republican .vote
for the straight Democratic ticket, ac
complishes his share of the work to be
done, and he will be entitled to as much
crdit as the big lawyer who makes
speeches in a dozen counties. . There is
