As la duly bound, the "responsible ed itor" of the Ottawa Republican "shoots olT his mouth" at the democratic county tick et nominated oa Tuesday, but finds the vul. nerable points so few that he is obliged to have recourse to invention, and as that is not bis forte, ho makes rather sorry wort of it. The first objection he makes to the ticket is, that it is so largoly made up of Ottawa men, among whom he coui.ts J. W. Duncan, W. R. Milligan, S. W. Kay. mond, II. T. Gilbert and A. T. Hartils. The truth, however, is, that Mr. Duncan belongs to La Salic. He was born and raised there, always lived there, all his property, which is considerable, lies there, and his office is there; only that, on ac count of his large practice in the courts at Ottawa, for convenience suke, within the last few months, he, or rather the firm of Duncan & O'Conor, has also opened nn of fice in Ottawa, and Mr. Duncan has brought his family here. Mr. MMligan, is also only constructively a citizen of Otta wa. He was a farmer in Bruce aud Grand Rapids for the past 23 years or more until a few months ago, when he sold his farm, and like a good many other farmers on selling their places, settled down in the nearest town, which in Mr. Milligun's case happened to be Ottawa, as the most el igible place lor the time in which to look around and see what to do nest. Mr. Ray mond, though now for many years a resi dent of Ottawa, was really au importation from Teru, ami may as rightfully be charged to that city as Ottawa. So that Gilbert and Cartels are the only men with whom Ottawa is rightfully chargeable. But where the "responsible editor'' makes himself ridiculous is when be comes to compare the men on the democratic ticket with those on the republican ticket on the score of knowledge and ability. He nays : To compare Stockdale with 'Williams, Bartels with Talbot, Milligan with Clark, or Duncan with Hart is to put ignorance on a par with knowledge, a novice with an imaginary fitness with proved ability. To compare J. W. Duncan with Joe Hart "is to put ignorance on a par w ith knowledge ! !" Great C;usar, what an idea ! But after all, the editor in his sly way is often a great joker, and no doubt he means to be taken in a Pickwickian sense, and in that light is quite correct. The compar ison of J. W. Duncan with Joe Hart Is about like comparing Daniel 'N'ebMer with William Cullen. Mr. Duncan is con fessedly one of the leading minds of the state in the legal profession, a man of brains and ideas; Mr. Hart is well, Joe Hart. A very detent and moderately in telligent farmer in the town of Earl, more active than successful as a precinct pol itician, but hardly ever beard of beyond his own town lines. The comparison, on the scoro of intel ligence, ability and every quality that per tains to true manliness of William R. Mil ligan with Thomas Clark is equally ridic ulous. It is like comparing a giant to a pigmy. Intellectually Mr. Milligan is sec ond to few men in the county. To talk about Tom Clark in connection with intel lect is laughable. So it is enough to make a horse laugh to speak of Walter Reeves as the equal In ability, education aud legal attainments of Hiram T. Gilbert; nor will any candid man pretend that in any quali fication for the oflice Mr. McDonald is the superior of Daniel Evans. We are willing to let the public, who know both, compare Bartels with Talbot on the scoro of brains or knowledge ; and as to the advantage on that score of Wil liams over Stockdale, no man who is inti mately acquainted with both can see where it comes in. AVe admit that Mr. Williams is a very intelligent and competent man, and has mado a good enough school su perintendent; but no one who knows Mr. Stockdale and his antecedents can deny that as an educator his rank is far above that of Mr. Williams, and bis fitness to make a good county superintendent ought to be in the same proportion of a higher prado. While thus fur the assault of the "res ponsible editor" upon the democratic tick et is coniessedly harmless, absurd and rid iculous, and no one knows it better than himself, he no doubt imagines he has made at least one good point In bis allusion to the apparent slight of the Germans In the nominations. But whose fault was it ! The Germans arc dissatisfied with tho repub lican party because it Las confessedly es poused the cause of prohibition, and their leanings towards the democracy arise from its opposition to sumptuary legislation. The Germans arc therefore actuated by an important and distinctive principle. To ustam that principle their effort should naturally be to get a voice in tho legisla ture where the only question they are con cerned about cjn be brought to the test and acted upon. The democrats offered them any place on the legislative ticket they de sired from Senator down. But with pleuty of eligible! and competent men tbey refused to pn rat any candidate. Their only can d:nt was for the offW of probate cVrk, and br h:,d f-ait flit uijIyjWifhiu a wnek or two. Unfortunately tbero was another candidate for that offllco who bad been at work for six months, was strong and pop ular, and bad his friends so strongly pledged for him that they could not hon orably go back upon him ; and so tho only candidate of the Germans failed. Are they reasonable In resenting it under such con ditions ? Of course every democrat pro found! v recrets that uncontrollable circum stances assumed such a shape; but this at least all aro conscious of, that there was uo slight no going back on tho principle tbo Gcrmaus claim abovo all else to have uthOirt; and if, because they could not have their way in regard to au cfiloo in volvlng no principle, they go bavk on the nriuctolo thev claim to care for by - helping the prohibition republicans agamst their anti-nrohibition friends, the demo- crats, all we can say 1, we shall prolouudly regret it, and mainly because it will show that they have less care for principle than wo had deemed them capable or. JUDGE CODT FOR CONGRESS. If was no dodbt a very easy and simple matter for tbo democratic congressional convention on Tuesday to nominate a can didate for congress who in all that pertains tn inii.ll.riiml KlHtnrn and fitness for tho offTce should be immeasurably the superior of the preseut republican nominee, for tho district has dozens of such democrats, but among them all thcio is no oue whose superiority stands out more conspicuous than that of Judge H. V. Cody of Du Page couuty. Ho Is confessedly oue ot the ablest judges on the Illinos bench; was elected to the position, though a life long and unflinching democrat, in a district 3 to 1 republican; is yet comparatively young, is popular, active, a brilliant speak er aud alltogether a first-class, superior man. Can such a man be elected? In a dis trict now lor years alUicted with ' chip, munkism" in her congressional reprcsen tation is there manliness, spirit and inde pendence enough to cast oil' the tetters of mere party ism and send a max to congress! Our Du Page democratic friends assured the convention that in their county Judge Cody, if not getting a majority, would at least cut down the republican majority to a'trifle. The Will county men said they could give him a handsome majority in that county, and the democrats of La Salle think they can do so here. With Du Page neutralized and Will and Ln S:ille to off set again3t Grundy and Kendall, is tue case really so hopeless ps some have imagiued! Aside from tho novelty, the real importance ot once more being repre sented in congress by a man cl respectable ability, seems to be object enough to put the democrats on their mettle to make a hard, earnest fight fur Judge Cody. The State Fair at Peoria this week has thus far been a decided success. The at tendance reached 12,000 on Wednesday and 30,000 on Thursday, and the receipts on Thursday evening already exceeded $30,000. While some ot tho departments, particularly those devoted to horses, cattle, and farm implements and machinery, were filled beyond all former precedent, none ot the others were neglected, and upon tho wholo tho show was abundantly satisfact ory. It is noted that while tho exhibit of Hereford cattle was the finest perhaps erer made in the country, that of short horns was still finer, and the latter again bore off most of the ribbons. DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL CONVEN TION. Pursuant to can, delegates appointed by tho democrats of the counties composing the Sth congressional district met in con vention at Ottawa on Thursday, the Sth inst. to nominate a candidate for congress.

''A WINNING TICKET." This is what the L:i Jviilo IKmo.-rat, usually h:n"J to pliase, calls the ticket nominated by the Democratic County Con vention on Tuesday. "l! is w Uhout doubt," says the 7Aiw.', "the strongest and most popular ticket ever this paper bad the pleasure to hoist to the bead of its edito rial columns." Aud then the paper speaks of the candidates individually as follows: James W. Duncan was nominated I r state senator by acclamation amid con. tinned applause and waving of hats ai;it hamlkerchicts, and the people knowing him to be a man of huh honor and with an integrity none cuii impeach he will be ek'cted'ucxt November bv an overwhel ming majoritv, burying Joe Hart under an avalanche of votes so deep iliat the re mains will have ratline.! to mother earth before his friends can find him. The old war-horscs Alex. Vaugiicy and Samuel Wiley are c-ur representatives, and they aie sure of election if all of us art fairly by vo ting l1.; for each. Hiram T. GilU'rt, for county judjre, the able and talented young lawyer, is lust as sure ot victory m is me sun to shine on the day of election, and Hon. Daniel Evans uupport trom the greenbaekers and a united democracy will give him a flattering majority over bis op. ponent for probate judge'." William R. Milligan, the ever true citizen find consist ent lite-long democrat, was nominated for sheriff. His election can be accomplished if the old party will go to work, and by the good feeling which prevailed we know all men to be true. The popular Patrick Fin lan only needed the nomination of county clerk to insure his election. No young man has more friends than he who are ready to go to work for his election. A. 1. liartels tor probate clerk will be tri umphantly eleeted as will Dr. Olendenen lor coroner, lhat Geralet li. MncKtiate, one el the best teachers in the state, will be elect ed county school superintendent, we have not the shadow of doubt. His majorities in Ottawa, La Salle, Peru, Mcndota and other cities will be sweeping. OI the ticket tlu Peru lie raid frays: Contrary to expectations of their cpno. nenU, the democracy mil in convention to nominate a county ticket, and parted with scarcely a ripplo of dissatisfaction among its members. The delegates were ei'ual in Intelligence to tho Ir.te republican conven tion, and showed far more ability in their i delltie-rations and in presenting their can didates. The genera! opiriou is, th.it with one exception, the ticket nominated is an exceedingly strong one. It has one cle ment of strength apparent iu the number ot inelefatigable workers nominated. At the head of the ticket is Hon. Jas. "V. Duncan for state senator, one of the bril liant lawyers among ihe young democracy. and the balance ot the ticket with one or two exceptions is equally strong. It is doubtful whether a stronger ticket could be selected. There was an effort to place a German 1:1 the legislative nominations, but utter four good iuin bad been pro posed and declined, the attempt was h! hii- doned. The Germans present were satis- lied with the nominations.'' AMl'SKMUXTS. The Litta concert party aro announced for the Opera House on next Thursday evening, the h'.li. ihe Tarty consists nt Marie Litta; Annie L Iieerc, contralto; Krnest Baldanza, tenor; Julius Ilerecby, Hungarian basso; Louis Illumberg, vio loncellist; Jos. Harrison, pianist. The concert will consist of two parts: the first, a concert programme; the second, an net from "Fiiust," we believe. Tho company sang at Chicago on Thursday night of which concert the Tribune says: In point of numbers the concert by tho reorganized Litta eompany at Central Mu sic Hall last nifht may be considered ns an unqualified success. The placard "Standing room only" was on tho door some timo before the opening piece wai played on the organ by Prof Falk, and not only were all the seats sold, but the lobby also was well tilled. Musically, bowcyer, there was room for much improvement, a fact which the best-naturctt audience In the world could not have ignored. Mile. Ma rio Litta was, as always, a most acceptable singer, and begins the new season in good voice and with none of her oft teste d abil ity lacking. Her numbers were justly and enthusiastically encored. Sig. Raldanza also made an excellent impression. His voice is a strong, clear tenor of consider able range anel under good control. Mr. Hiumberg, the violoncellist, was quickly recognized as nn artist of merit, and each of his solo numbers was re-demanded. Tbo others are not highly spoken of. Tickets, 73 cents, gallery, 50 cents. The Miln-Burloigh combination, who open at the Grand, Chicago, Oct. 10, are booked for Ottawa shortly afterwards, and will probably give "Othello." Some Inillrliliiallties. I'uki.I's. C. S.
