As for the disaffection In tho ranks
nvor tho contest for Sherltt and
Treasurer, which, It has been said,
disturbs tho Democratic peace, tho
leaders declared to-day that It had
vanished. Certain disgruntled indi
viduals who sought to throw the
TreasureMhlp to a different part of
tho city, claimed that Klolbassa
would not accopt tho nomination for
County Commissioner. They ex
pressed tholr wishes, not tho truth.
Klolbassa has assured tho party that
ho will run and do his best for tho
ticket "1 am not a bolter," he said,
and thoro tho matter rests.
"That is a strong ticket and con
tains not ono man agalnstwhom any
rollcctlons can bo cast," 'said Stato
Committeeman Chaso to-day. "Only
six of tho twenty-two men nominat
ed havo ever hold ofllco before. Every
man, from Sheriff down, is a clean,
' capable citizen who will make an
cMcient and honest public officer.
Frank S. Tcabody, Theodore Oohno
and Roger Sullivan, randidates for
the threo most importaut offices, are
all well-known men who havo tho

every man on tho tickot It was a
fair convention, too. Of course,
thero were differences of opinion, as
thoro aro always, but tho committees
did their work eiiultably, and no
body had any chance to complain.
About tho surest Indication that the
ticket Is a strong one and ono which
commands respect is tho commenda
tion that the Tribune gives It
"Tho tickot will win In November,"
continued Mr. Chase. "When Con
gress passes the Wilton bill business
will Increase and tho Republicans
will find that they havo not got such
an easy victory before them as thoy
think they have. With tho strong
ticket they havo named tho Demo
crats will go Into tho campaign with
every prospect of electing It. Tho
republicans will find It difficult to
name one eiually as good. Tho Coun
ty Commissioners nominated yester
day aro especially strong men and I
see no reason why tho Democrats
should not control tho "oxt County
Board. Gcorgo Edmonson has mado
a good President of tho Board and
will mako a good officer next year.
Democracy has a right to fcol proud

Tho Democracy, ever with the la
dles, was glad to give them an oppor
tunity to presont their views to the
convention. Aid. John McGlllcn ap
peared upon tho platform and said:
"As Chairman of tho County Central

Tliu Democratic party of Cook county. In

gluuco to tho principles of Democracy of

of tho party In l'M. We charge that the

continued ttmo-sorvlng and vicious logl
lutlon durliu Itopubllcun supremacy.
Thus hollovlnsr. wo donoiiuce the tariff
legislation ot tbo Itopubllcun party, which
for u lonssorlosof yean has croatod and
fostered monopoly by placing high "lm
prt luxes on all articles produced by
fuvorod Individuals and corporations,'1
thus Increasing tho expenses ot consumor,
destroying foroUn trade, and leaving tho
American markets In tho hands ot pools
und trusts. Wo docluro that tho present
huslnoss depression Is tho direct rosult ot
tbo unjust legislation that has persistently
taxod tbo many for tho benolltof tlio tow,
und wo denounce those so-called Damn-
crats In Congress and In tho gen a to who
for many month havo loft the MuKlnloy

that Itopubllcun logtslutlou has caused,
Wo ball with pleasure tho action of tho

Wo uro In favor of the uso of both gold

which N the metropolis of the West, mid

hollovlni this reform can lie lieit brought
about by the consolidation of the various

wo turn to the I.oglslutmo for relief, and
tlnd that tho ubu.os under which our pun

passed In the Intorest of the long suffering'
taxpuyers ot Chicago.
Wo Indorso tho action of tho StutJ and
