It ia an oflense against good morals to support Mr. Hill, Mr. Kandall, Mr. Hewitt, Mr. Coleman, or any other conspicuous Democrat in preference to Mr. Cleveland?" The Kanfcas Ik-mtrrat calls upon Presi dent Cleveland as a good Democrat to retire as his candidacy will endanger the success of the party Sexatob Platt, of Connecticut, in commenting on the President's message in the Senate one day last week, said among other things worth considering : " If anybody but the President of the United States had made soch statements aa were contained in the message, he would apply to bim a characterization which it would not be proper to apply to the President. He related that there was not one article of domestic production manufactured here to a considerable ex tent that was not approximately, as cheap as it was abroad. This attack of the President on the manufacturers of the country was too open, too plain, too se vere to be allowed to pass in silence. Were the manufacturers realizing im mense profits? Were they the million aires of the land ? The manufacturers w ho had accumulated fortune eo,ual to a million dollars might be counted on the fingers. Aud in nine cane out often these men, or their fathers, had struggled up from the bottom. Who had ever heard a manufacturer called a king? Yet they heard of 'Cattle Kings' and 'Wheat Kings and 'Iron Kings' and Cotton Kings' and 'Railroad Kings'. So, too, they heard of 'trusts', and the President had referred to them. But were they manufacturing trusts? There was the Standard Oil trust, the great tiogebic iron trust and the coal trust. And yet there w as not a dollar of protection on anthra cite coal, or oil, and none on iron ore that would lead to the formation of a trust. If the sugar trust was a manufac- j turing trust, it was the only one in the I I'nited States. That was not the way in I which iiiaimfjdures were developed. !

" .'. Jff tainm vf the VrpiA- (,Vmt XliiHal Vimmittrt : " Sia I wish, through you. to state to the members of the Republican party, that my name will not be resented to the National Convention called to assemble in Chicago in Jane next, lor the nomination of candidates for President and Vice President of the Uni ted States. I am constrained to this decision by con siderations entirely personal to myself, of which you were advised mora than a year ago. - Itut I cannot make the announcement without giving expression to my deep sense of gratitude to the many thousands tif my countrymen who have sustained me so long and so cordially that their feeling has seem ed to go beyond the ordinary political adhe rence of fellow partisans and to partake some what of the nature of personal attachment. For this most generous loyalty of friendship I can make no adequate return, but I shall carry the memory of it while life lasts. - Nor can I refrain from congratulating the Republican party njion the cheering prospects which distinguish the opening of the national contest for 1SSS as compared with that of 1I. InlSsJ the Republican party throughout the I'nion met with disas trous defeat. Ten suites that had snprted liarficld and Arthur in the election of ItisO were carried by the Ik-tU'icrats either by ma jorities or pluralities. The R publican loss in the Northern election,, exceeded half a million votes, and the electoral votes of the I'nion divide! on the basjg of the result of ISs.', gave to the D.'m K-ratsover 3o l electors out of a total of 4 l. There was a partial Mactioti in favor of the K 'publicans in the eleHions of 141, hut the Democrat slill held possesiou of seven Northern Sfates and on the basis of the year contest could show more than one hundred majority in the Kluc toral College of the whole country. " l!ut against the discouragement natural ly following the adverse, elections of tlieso two year, tiie spirit of the Republican rty in the National ontest of IsSJ rie high, and the Republican masses enten-d into the campaign with such energy that the Una! re sult depended on the vote of a single state, and that state was carried by the Democratic party by a plurality so small that it repre sented less than one-eleventh of one per cent of the entire vote. Tiie change of a single vote in every two thousand of the total Jvil! would have given the state to the Republi cans, though only one year before the Dem cratic plurality exceeded one hundred and ninety-two thousand. "The electiomi ls'I and 17 have demon strated growing strength in the Republican ranks.

Should the party gain in the results of Isss over those of l-isiJ-7 in anything like the proportion of the gain of l.sst over liis-3, it would secure one of the most remarkable vu toriwi of it entire exist ence. Itut victor- dm tuit depund oil to large a ratic of increase ; the party ha only to maintain relatively its prestige of Isivt-7 to give to its national raudidateevery Xorth eru State- but one, with a far better proscct of carrying that one that) it has had for the ist six years. "Another feature of the political situation should inspire Republicans with irreaistihle strength. The present National Adminis tration was dueled w ith, if not Uin, the re K jted assertlous of its leading supKirters in every protection Ktate that no ixue on the tariff was involved. However earnestly Rrpnhliians urged that qiutlioti a the one of i-ant rolling iuiportatice in the campaign, they were met by the Democratic leaders and journals with persistent evasion, con cealment and denial. That resource the President has fortunately removed. The issue which the Republicans maintained and the IVmocrals avoided in ISM has been promi nently and secifically brought forward by the Iteiiiocratic President and cannot be hid den out of sight ill I The country is how in the enjoyment of an industrial system I which in a quarter of century has assured a larger national growth, a more rapid m -cummulation and a broader dis'.ributiou u( wealth than were ever before known to his tory. The American people will now be oeti!y and formally asktsl to divide whether this system uliail he m klvtsly abandoned and a new trial he nude of an old cxper mciit, which lias uniformly led to national emliarra-ssment aud widespread individual distress.

Bartlett, the president td" the club, who presided, called the diners toonler at 8:.') o'clock. In a brief speech he declar ed that the recent convention of clubs repre senting all that is honorable and manly in silkies had produced a degree of party organization never before equaled, and that too in the Democratic stronghold in the city of New York. The Republican club of this city intended to do its part in tho work of the coming campaign. Whoever beard of a Democratic mugwump?" (applause), said Mr. Bartlett. The IKmocratic party never I'M outside of its on n ranks for candidates, ami those of us w ho wailed for a tidal wave last October are waiting yet. The adminis tration at Washington issjmkeii of as a re form administration and vet it has changed eighty jier cent of the otHi holders and is w restling diligently with the others. Mr. Bartlett concluded with a tilting trib ute to the memory of Lincoln. Then fol lowed reading of the letters of regret. When the name of Governor Foraker was reached there was an outburst of applause that was actually deafening. The toast "Abraham Lincoln" was re sponded to by Senator Evans, who in the convention of 1VW, had moved the nomina tion f Linc.i!n unanimous, ire said: "1 am proud to lie mimlicrcd with the members of this club and to take part in this tribute to Abraham Lincoln. Where can we find a fame like his? His Is a fame like that of Washington, and his career reflects iim Illinois a glorv like that which Washine- Ion gave to Virginia.'' Mr. Kvarts briefly outlined the career of Lincoln, comparing ' his fame with that of King David, after the ' great series of debates with Stephen A. ' Douglas. " He was the trader not of a par- ty, but of a nation, that had risen to shake j oil the incumbrances that bound itslini!s," j said Mr. Kvarts. "Though without an army or a navf , this natitjii was able, as it would be again, to arraign on sea and land an armament able to nc with the armies of the world. And Lincoln lived to see peai-e oyer a subjugated, not a compromised rebellion. Applause. Jt matters little what we say hciu, but it mattered much what w as done there. There was nothing left in the stage of human greatness hut that this chovcii leader should he a martyr, applause and that he should have been stricken down on Good Friday as the martyr uf liberty adds to his iflory. Mr. Kvarts prophesied the speedy return of the Republican party to power, and closed wish a further eulogy of Lincoln. "The Republican Party " was responded to by Senator John C. Sjiecr, of Wisconsin. He reviewed Its earsr at some length, fnmi its reception to the present time, aud attrib uted its defeat in JSSt to the mugwumps. The Issue at prestit, he said, were not con fined to free ballot and civil service reform hut also Included the protection of American industry uud labor.

I This exodus,"' be said, b will be ellectual : ly pushed, and by May 1 wc expect to get our first party on the road. There are no headquarters si yet ; tbe movement is very young, Jess than a month old. So far as ac- tive work is concerned, headquarters will be established probably in New York. AVe shall have three agents in Cincinnati, one at St. lxu'i and one at Chicago. I am agent at this point. We have some of the he,t people in the country interested men who are willing to go down into their poekcts for the relief of their oppressed brethren. We have some colered people in this country who arc pretty well fixed, and they are cona jrtiltcd to the work. There is no .xed amount of capitul. We hope to accomplish by tfic eiodus first and foremost, protection.; This is no a question of politics at the bottom, although it will, of course, have some political bearing. Why, do you. know that in the last fifteen years lS.ooo black people have been killed iu the South for their political opinions and nothing has been done to remedy the mat ter? It is life or death with us primarily. We are tired of having representatives in Congress upon a voting population that have no representation. There is no other remedy so we projxiK! to pull out. The colored man has developed aud made the South what it is, and the white lalsirer could not and can not do the work that our people do. The Southerners will find the difference when they have to use white labor. We have selected South America for a lo cation because of its climate and the adapta bility of the soil to produce such articles as the colored people are accustomed to rais ing. We have investigated the country and received favorable replies. Our people do not want to come North and West lieranse of the climatic conditions, and because the pre judice against a black face follows them even there. In South America as well aa iu other parts of the world, the color of the skin docs not bar a man out of the race, for the best. We shall start oiircmigrunts from Eastern points. I can't sieak any more definitely now than to say that a Boston line running to Brazil will carry passengers at U a head. That certainly is cheap enough. We have agents at work in the South now and we shall get as many emigrants ajossi hle oit of Mississippi, Louisiana and Ala bama, while not neglecting Missouri and Kentucky, and if there is not a big emigra tion before next summer then I miss my Iftiess." Murdered In His Own House. Chic too, Feb. h. Amos J. Snell, owner of the the toll road running through Jeffer son, was found murdered in his residence this morning at No. 4 Si Washington Iioule vard. Mr. Snell owned a great numlier of i houses, which he rciiKsL and all his biisincss ) was transacted in the basement of his own j house, which had been fitted np as an office, i The windows and doors were heavily barri j eaded. The only occupants of the house ! last night were its osvncr, ill years old, two : servant girls and two little girls, grandchil j drenof.Mr. Suell, who were sicndinga few i days there. Mrs. Suell and one of her two daughters, .Mrs. 1 raiiK ntnn, were on a visit to Milwaukee. .V most extraordinary feature of the crime is the fact that although the murder was ii'iiimiitcd alnmt 2 o'clock and the shooting was heard by the servant girls at that time they paid no attention to it, explaining their action after the murder had Ihs'H lieoverctl by saying that they thought Mr. Snell had ai-cideiita!!y fired the shot. It was therefore not until 7 o'clock that the coachman, who slept in the barn, entered the house to look after tho furnace and discovered the body of Mr. Snell at the head of the basement stairs with a bullet hole just behind the ear. Jt is supnisc. that Mr. Snell had been aroused by the opera tions of the burglars iu his uilicc and came down .stairs w hen the fatal shot was fired. The burglars ejected an entrance by cutting a panel out ofa rear door, but it isnol known that they obtained anything uf value beyond a .o,'J chei k, payable to Mr. H Hell's order. Mr. Snell leaves a widow, two married daughters and a son. and has been esti mated as worth nearly $.'S,ln),niiO: I'll n voo, Feb. 10. Albert J. Snell has de cided to offer a reward of jlu.uQM for. the ar rest, or Information leading to the arrest of the murderer, or murderers of his father. Neither tint deteetives nor the relatives of Mr, Snell will admit that the murder was the work of one assassin. One man only many have been in the house, but they are conlbleut that one man did not start out by himself to rob the houses along Washington Boulevard. The detectives argue that the great reward will tempt some member of the hand to squeal. But even Captain l.yman Lewis, of the Dcsplaines Street Station, who is not easily surprised, was startled by the sum which Mr. Snell offered tor the convic tion of the murderer. Concerning the general condemnation of ! local police force, 1 lie chief of detectives says: " (f those who criticise and deplore our con dition would take the trouble, to find out h.'jw things are going on in New York and other cities, they would say comparatively s-'" " wean.- in a ..eavun nt.i i-unu. 4 nere seems in oe a general uprising oi roo- liers all over the ciitintrv. to Iiiures with burorlars and other midnight maraud Ta.

Why is it that of two horse blankets which look and feel equally well one won't wear at all, and the other wears well ? This i Trade Mark shows why. Horse Blankets which are strong and have a reputation are always imitated in poor qualities which look like them, but having fewer warp threads are not as strong. Some dealers buy these poor imitations fur a few cents less and by saying they are "just as good," sell them at the same price as the strong blankets to parties who do not know the difference. You cannot tell whether horse blankets are strong by the look or fed, as ,thc warp threads do not show on the fnce. How then are you to know? -T In order that you can tella strong blanket from a weak one, the manu facturer of 5 4 Horse Blankets sews the above 5A Trade Mark inside of each blanket This is a guarantee that it is the strongest blanket made for the money and will wear welL Many poor imitations have been sold as 5 blankets. Remember non,; are genuine unless the 3 1 Trade Mark is sewed inside. RF.ItlRT OF WILLIAM W. BAKER. Hteward of the Pour House and House of kiuiduyoieiit of siueri County.
