concerned Tho Democratic party
especially in this State is confronted
with a great crisis which substantially
Involves its existence as a political or
ganization Our opponents taking
advantage of their temporary and ac
cidental supremacy iu the Legislature
and in tho Constitutional Convention
are eeeking to pass upon the people of
the State a system of apportionment
which urtually gives the Republicans
control of the legislative department
of tho State for tweuty years to come
a system based upon territorial ana
rather than population founded upon
injustico and inequality and designed
to enable tho minority rather than the
majority of tho people to control the
State Tho very life of our party is
at stake Besides tho control of the
next House of Representatives may
depend upon the election here
Tho Democratic convention having
against my protest selected me to lead
in such a crisis and although I ex
ceedingly regret its action and espe
cially rcgiet that my advice was not
adopted in regard to representation in
the convention itself and while I have
sought during the past week as per
sonal and political friends well know
not only to heal and harmonize polit
ical and factional differences but to
secure some other candidate wholly
acceptible to every one to assume my
place in this great struggle in whose
favor I would gladly retire but which
has not proved feasible and recollect
ing that the Democratic party of this
State has honored mo in the paawjietf
I solicited its favors in the days of its
sunshine aud prosperity I can not de
sert it now in the hour of its danger
and in this great emergency
It is a timo when personac sacrifices
are demanded when individual prefe
rences must bo subordinated to the
general good and when there must
bo exhibited a lofty patriotism Ii
we win this contest it will be tho par
tys victory not mine if wo lose it
will be the partys defeat which will
b3 involved in my own Personally I
am largely indifferent to the
the struggle A duty con
fronts mo and I shall perform it rs
God gives rao the light to see it let
tho result bo what it may
I shall confidently appeal to the
plain people of the State who have
always sustained me iu the past when
I have espoused their cause I snail
present to them the issue of
cy ngainst plutocracy the issue ot no
public taxation except for public pur
poses the issue being the iesue of op
position to tho centralization of all
powers in tho general government
tho issue of personal liberty against
religious intolerance the issue of good
government liberal and just excise
l kws economy in public expenditure
the promotion of the dignity of labor
and protection for its rights munici
pal homo rule and the uprooting of
corruption and tho correction of abu
ses everywhere whether in Republi
or Democratic localities
Gentlemen I accept the nomination
which you in behalf of the Democra
tic party of New Yorlf have tendered
me and relying upon tho undoubted
courage of the Democratic masses
their fortitude under adverse circum
stances their loyalty to their princi
ples which truly represent tho peo
ples cause I enter upon this contest
with tho determination ihafi ho honor-

to achieve success and with that con

How tho Mormon Leader Joseph
Smith Onco Voted Against
Stephen A Bon loss
Of all the most successful and per
manent new fangled religions that
were ever conceived in sin and
brought forth in iniquity that
of Mormonism heads the proces
sion Starting in the muddled brain
of Joe Smith an idle shiftless vaga
bond then residing iu a little New
York village it has spread over the
whole civilized world and nas emissa
ries and proselytes in all quarters of
the globe In this country it has foun
ded a great Slate Utah and so potent
is their power that the political com
plexion of the next Senate of the
United States may be decided by their
votes and for ten years they have
held the balance of power politically
in the Territory of Arizona The
Mormon hatred of Republicanism on
account of tho passage of the Ed
munds Act which was passed by that
both candidates at onco began coquet
ting with Joe Sniith Finally for a
handsome consideration Smith pro
raised his voto to Streator who of
course thought this meant tho entire
Mormon vote and he went home sat
isfied his eleclibtfBeVt unfortu
nately his vaulting ambition oer
leaped itself and fell on tother side
Douglass and Smith bad always been
good friends and he saw Joo after iiis
interview with Streator Tho day ha-
K
party maybe the sheet anchor thatt
will save both Utah and Arizona
the Democrats
From the time of tho first crraniw
tionof the Mormon -church at Kirt
land Ohio by Joe Smith and Sidney
Rigdon to its removal to Independ
ence Mo thence to Nauvoo Ills
and finally to Salt Lako City it has
been under the complete control of
shrewd aud unscrupulour men who
sought power at the expense of all
which should be held most sacred
At Nauvoo Ills these people selec
ted one of the most beautiful building
sites in the State and built there a city
of twenty five thousand inhabitants
overlooked by a temple -which for
beauty of design and elegance or at
chitectuie was without a rival And
here and on the adjoining farms of
Hancock county Joe Smith gathered
some fifty thousand followers Among
these were about fifteen thousand vo
ters and Joe Smith controlled every
one of those votes as relentlessly as
the Czar of Russia controls his sub
jects
Back in tho early forties the Whig
and Democratic parties of Illinois
were so evenly divided that the Mor
mons held tho balance of power Both
the parties courted Joe Smith and
the Legislatures lavished upon him all
tho special privileges that ho asked
for including the arming and equip
ping of a largo body of men called
tho Nauvoo Legion In those days
Stephen A Douglass represented the
Quincy district in Congres Nauvoo
being in this district and he was then
just entering upon that brilliant polit
ical career which ended only with his
untimely death
In 1844 au exciting political cam
paign opened and Doughua was a
candidate for re election His Whig
opponent was a pompous old lawyer cf
luacomi named otrcator ut4ouree
fore tho election Smith called all his
followers around him and thus ad
dressed them
At tho election tomorrow I have
promised my vote to Mr Streator and
I intend t vote for him but brother
Hyrum has something he wishes to
say to you t

this treachery an tho part of Smith
vwas the initial causo of his downfall
and subsequent death Tho people
became both alurmod aud euraged at
the tremendous power held in the
bauds ot one man aud sought pre
texts of quarrel with tho Mormons
which culminated in tho muider by a
mob of Joseph and Hyrum Smith in
Carthago jail and the exodus of their
followers to Utah
During tho heated Lincoln and
Douglass campaign of 1857 when
theje intellectual giants were stump
ing Illinois as candidates for tho Uni
ted States Senate I was detached from
the reportorial stafT of the Rock
Island Register and scut to Nau
voo to edit a Douglass campaign pa
per called tho Nauvoo Democratic
Press Douglass defeated Lincoln for
the Senate by six majority on joint
ballot in tho Legislature and this de
feat made Abe Lincoln President of
the United States
At the time I lived in Nauvoo its
population did not exceed five hund
red and there wtre hundreds of very
handsome residences utterly deserted
It was a perfect fac similie of Gold-

motherlyld soul and was Smiths
only wife foralthough Joe Smith es
tablished polygamy as a part of his
religion neither he nor either of his
three sons young Joe Aleck or Hy
rum ever practiced it
Largo numbers of Mormons are
now settled in the Salt River Valley
of Arizona around Tempe and Mesa
City and they arc among the best and
most thrifty citizens of the Territory
They still vote as a unit however
and when Utah and Arizona are ad
mitted as States the Mormons will
hold tho balance of power politically

Tho Grave of Lafayette
Washington Post
While in Paris a short timo ago
said Mr W R Potts of St Louis
at the Normandie it occurred to me
that it was a fitting act to make a pil
grimage to the tomb of that illustri
ous Frenchman dear to tho heart of
all American patriots tho Marquis do
Lafayette I asked a number ot peo
ple before I could find any ono to en
lighten me as to the spnt but after
repeated inquiry ascertained it- loca
tion The grave is situated in old Pa
ris within the grounds of a convent
which the ancestors of Lafayett had
founded and where repose tho ashes
of many of tho French nobility
The first thing tbat attracted nv
attention in connection with thbiiers
tomb was that above it floats a silken
flag bearing the Stars and Stripes It
seems tnat a good many years ago an
American gentleman left in his will a
buiu of money to be used for the apo
dal purpose of keeping an American
flag forever flying above the grave of
Latayette It has done without in
termission from the day the will went
into e ffpet and whenever through the
