Sucker State Democrats
Henry M. Teller Is Called a Great
Pkoiiia, 111., June 24. The Illinois
Democratic convention assembled
and Chalrmnn A. M. Bull made a
speech counseling prudence without
fear, and declaring against a straddle
on the money question.
For over an hour before the stato
Democratic convention was to con
vene, thousands of people from nil
over tho state began to besiege tho
hall. It was filled up and crowds were
seeking ndnilsshm In vain. There
was nncxcltementorplaylngof hands.
At 12:30 W. II. Hlhrlchsen, chnlrman
of the Democratic central committee,
called the house to order. Rev. Mr.
McVeaty prayed to tho Almighty to
restore tho country to prosperity, uud
that the masses of the people might
bo relieved from oppression nnd
wrong. Tho audience applauded the
prayer. Tho chairman announced A.
II. Bell us temporary chairman.
Before taking his seat Chairman
Bell made the following address.
"If there was u time in the history
of any political party when overy step
should bo taken with piudencc, but
without fear, ahd when wise councils
should prevail, that time is now at
hand for the Democratic party.
"Gicat Issues are before the people.
Momentous Issues arc. at stake. This
year will becomo famous In the calen
dar. Four years ago wc nominated a
man for presidency from the state of
New York, despite tho protests of tho
delegations from that state. May God
forgive us for It. Thero must Ikj a
limit oven to Divine wrath, for yo
have slnco then been beaten as with
a scouragc of scorpions.
"At that election wc carried almost
every state and achieved the most
complete victory at tho polls in tho
history of this laud. Our hopes wcro
then bright. Wo felt that our party
had come Into power to stay. But,
alas, our president, forgetting tho
tariff Issue, on which we had so
grandly won, brought confusion Into
his party by striking -down with
traitorous hands the only apology that
still remained -for the coluago of tho
people's silver. As a result, two years
ugo vc wcro routed at every point,
and today the Democratic hosts of
Illinois, whom you represent, have
not a representative In congress.
"A proclamation went out to our
people that the Democracy of this
stato should assemble In convention
nnd define tho position of tho party
on the money question. The rank
and file of tho Democratic party had
always been for tho free coinage of
gold and silver at the old ratio, and a
majority of our representatives In
congress I has always been In favor of
It. But tho declarations ofjtlio party
had heretofore been couched In equiv
ocal terms. Tho time had come when
equivocation was to be superseded by
unequivocal, vigorous statements.
The people discussed tho question and
It became manifest that a great ma
jority of tho peoplo wore in favor of
tho people's money, and more of It.
"Tho advocates of tho single gold
standard said that first the party
would not declare for frco silver, then,
finding themselves beaten at every
point, they sought to belittle this
great gathering of the people and said
It was not a Democratic convention,
but a convention of silver cranks. The
great convention assembled. It de
clared to the world that the demo
cracy of Illinois wasunequlvocally In
favor of gold and silver at tho rntio of
10 to 1, without tho consent or co
operation of any nation on the face of
tho iarth. Our fellow citizens of
other states read our platform, caught
up tho Inspiration, and the move
ment Increased. State after state in
this great Mississippi valley und In
the west and south, have Joined In the
great movement of the peoplo.
"The Republican national conven
tion last week, dominated by the
northeastern section of iho-Unlon, de
clared for a single gold standard. In
my mind's eye 1 can sec tho consplra-

Tho temporary ch:ilrimin was fre
quently Interrupted by applause.
When ho said; "Four years ago tho
Democrats of tho stato supported a
man from Now York and may God
forglyo them for It," thoro aroso an
outburst of applause lasting several
minutes. A moment later ho paid a
compliment to Governor Altgcld and
tho whole assemblage arose, shouted,
screamed nnd throw up their hats and
handkerchiefs. There was another
demonstration when ho referred to
the free coluago of silver. When ho
had finished, tho grent audience gave
vent to deafening applause.
It was given out by ono of the frco
silver leaders shortly before tho con
vention was called to order, that tho
platform would declare for tho freo
and unlimited colnago or silver at a
ratio of 10 to 1, and that tho present
tariff laws would not be disturbed.

ENDORSED 1IY AN OPPONENT.
Coppy Ing what The Journal said
ot Col. Cooper, thoMcMlnnvlllo Tran
script eays: "Tho Transcript cat) fur
thor say that Col. Cooper was always
near tho holm of tho new party here,
and wo bcllovo In giving credit where
It Is duo, though wo did not oxactly
appruvo of his course Ills pen-marks
wore In Its doctrines, platforms, con

county will testify. Ho mndo tin ex

dent of McMlnnvlllo'd Board ot
Trade. .His olllclal mid political life,
us well as social, Is absolutely clean.
If tho present political upheaval
throws now tuon to tho surfaco, Mr.
Cooper will bo U safe man anywhere.
Commendation from an opponent Is
certainly merited. Col. Cooper was
hauled through tho streets of Mo
Mlunvlllo In u carrlago drawn by his
associates while two thousand people
cheered at tho ratification, of this
county victory. In his soldier boy
days ho was borno on tho shoulders of
his cheering comrades for horolo

that "pcaco hath Its victories no less
renowned than thoso of war." If ho
Is u safe man at county nnd stato
