In today' Chicago Herald appears an
txten 'ei forecast of the political sana
tion i i tu i Eleveaih district written from
MoncioH'h. Toe correspondent gives
facts n I durej to show that Truinin
Ft.uu wiil surely be the next congress -.man,
ad iyin hts npnent every con
ceivable advantage piscea the democratic
candidate's Iet passible majority at 300
Ite Herald says:
" Since 1390. when Ben Cole defeated
W. H Oest oy near.y 1 900 votes, there
by reversing tbe republican majority that
his opponent rolled up in 188S. the Elev
enth congressional district has been pop
ularly designated Ben Cable's district, by
which appellation it would doubtless
have continued to be known for the next
two years had the brainy Kock Island
. democrat been a ctndidite for the re
election. But having other plans in view
ha declined the nomination, and the
democrats of this district, with a wisdom
that is now apparent, selected as their
candidate young Truman Planiz. o'
Warsaw, whose clean, vigorous and able
campaign is universally conodii to be
. ore of the besi thai has ever been coo-
. ducted in the Eleventh congressional dis
trict. The Eleventh is composed of seven
conn ties taose of Rock Island. Mercer
Henderson, Warren. Hanock, McDod
cugn and Schuy'.er. This 'shoestring"
disiric; is a hard one to figure upon with
any degree of certainty, but the friends
of P!anr. at this late hour are very hope
ful of victory, and seemingly have excel
lent crounds upon which to base their
A cir-Male Man.
Truman Plants is a man of the people
lij-m in lork state 32 years ago, be his
lived in Hancock county since be was six
jears old. and has risen to the prcnii
aeore lie cow enjoys purel? by bis in
domitable exertions. Leaving the publu
schools at the age of 16. be praciic.-d
telegraphy for a time; next put in soav:
ntnths at surveying, after which be
worked as brabf man on the railroad, and
later became conductor, which position
he held for sven years. This post gave
him a certain amount of spare time at
Keokuk, which, instead of wasting. h
uiil z'jd by reading law in the office of
E T. Miller, of that city. He also car
ried law bo k1 03 the train and kepi
grinding away whenever an opportunity
presented. Two years ago he passed an
examinition at Springfield and was ad
mitted to the bar, and he is nowcons:d
ered one of the most promising young
lawyers in Warsaw. Daring the cam
paign of '83 be distinguished himself by
making a number of speeches in the dis
trict that attracted consilerable attention
and marked him as a coming man
Magnetic, earnest, aggressive and an
able speaker, full of original ideas that
he well knows how to expr. ss, Platitz
has developed wonderful staying qualis
ties daring the campaign that is now al
most ended, and baa made a host of
friends wherever be has spoken. Of ex
emplary habits be presents in this respect
a marked contrast to his opponent, B. P.
Marsh, also cf Warsaw, and many stanch
republicans in the district will vote for
Traman Plants next Tuesday or for the
' prohibition candidate rather than stultify
themselves by endorsing their party can
didate. Not TMea.inie to Temperance Mm.
Ia Warr jn county especially will the
republican candidate fall behind bis
ticket. There are upward of 2.500
United Presbyterians in this county, the
majority of whom have heretofore voted
the straight republican ticket. Many of
these declare they cannot conscientiously
vote for Marsh, and. while thy all may
sot go over to Plantz, it is unquestioned
that hundreds will turn to tbe prohibit
tion candidate, who. if a temperate man
had been nominated, would haye to el
the straight republican ticket.
Marsh is a perennial officer seeker He
has represented the Eleventh district
three successive terms in congress, has
been railroad and warehouse commin
' sioner and is now for the fifth time ask
iog tbe people to send him to Washing
ton to take care of their interests. It
is not surprising that tbe people are dis-
. inclined to accede to his modest de
mands. Tbey are pretty well convinced
that Marsh's desire to go to congress is
not induced by any philanthropic mo
tives, but is due entirely to a selfish wish
for his own aggrandisement.
On the other hand tbe thinking people
see in Plan's a young man possessing
many natural abilities, eager to prove bis
mettle and lacking only tbe opportunity.
If thi- be given him no doubt exists that
he will be a keen public servant, in
whom his contestants will find a faithful
representat ve ard for whose acts in pub
lie or private they will never have to
Democratic Succma Certain.
Howa-d Sit tee. chairman of the demo
cratic central committee of Warren coun
ty, is very singuine of the election of
Plants, relying largely upon tbe good
judgment of tbe people in a comparison
of tbe merits of the two candidate; and
the issues ihey represent. "Of course,'
come out of the contest a winner I firmly
belltve. We are in hopes, even, of giv
init Mr. Cleveland a small majority in
this district; and that Plantz will run
ahead of his ticket several hundred votes
there is no question."
