The Deneen forces are claiming 75 of the 101 counties of the state. In the list of counties assigned to Deneen, Logan is classed as a Yates county. Logan county ought to be with the governor in this contest, and the probabilities are it will be.—Lin coln Herald. Illinois Has MAN as Governor. Governor Deneen is deserving of thd respect and gratitude of every law abiding citizen of the state for the vigorous manner in which he is hand ling the situation. He has shown him self to he vigilant and fearless in de fense of the law and the rights of the humblest citizens of the state are as important In his eyes as those of the wealthiest and most influential. Illi-1 nois is fortunate in being governed at this time by a man who knows how to face a crisis and deal firmly with a situation calling for the exercise of vigorous measures of restraint.—Paris Beacon. • * * * Miss Ada Locks of Terre Haute is visiting Mrs. Alice Smith, two miles south of the city. DENEEN WINS PRAISE Comment on His Attitude in Sup pressing the Recent Riots at Springfield. — VIEWS OF THE NEWSPAPERS Governor Is Commended for Prompt and Energetic Action. Called Out the Militia with a Cour age That Disregarded Conse quences and Thereby Saved Many Lives. The attitude of Governor Deneen1 toward the violators of law and the peace of the city of Springfield ha1* 1 elicited widespread comment in Illi nois, adjoining states and those com monwealths nearest the two coasts. ' Nearly all the Illinois papers have re-1 ferred editorially to the outbreak. Hero are some of the more recent editorials: ui vri/vtruiur .L/eutreii toward the suppression of rioting in the state capital has won the approval of many who have been his carping critics. Race riots are always serious when prejudice rises to such a pitch as it did in Springfield. It was a difficult place for a public official. It would have been a very trying situation for Governor Deneen if he had been mere ly a politician. In this emergency he rose to the occasion. No one would condone the venting of mob violence and the maiming of so many innocent citizens, the destuction of property for which the municipality must pay and the taking of lives of people who had done nothing to merit it. If the guilty negroes had been lynched there might have been a shadow of excuse, but this was not the case. Governor Deneen very promptly announced his purpose of suppressing mob violence if it called on the resources of the whole state. He j called out enough militia to subdue the ! rioters and cow them. He did this with a courage that disregarded conse quences, caring not whether his action ■was approved or condemned by those whose opinion might carry weight with voters. He determined that law and order should rule and it has ruled since the governor promptly got into action in his effort to rescue the city that was the home of Lincoln and is his burial place, from the hands of a triumphant mob. Governor Deneen deserves credit instead of condemna tion. Had he refrained from acting and had he allowTed the mobs to con tinue rioting, he would have been worthy of blame. None but the vio lent would speak v_.il of the governor nuu Aittu cut? wuiu^c 11/ uci nucu n became necessary to save the name of the state of Illinois. His action in this case is a guarantee that mob vio lence need not be feared in Illinois so long as Charles S. Deneen is governor.” —■Alton Telegraph. <|» Governor Did His Duty. "It may be the recent primary held in Springfield and through the state has had something to do with the im pudence of the negro of that city. The city administration has been strong for Yates, and the negro, it is believed, numbered fully ninety per cent for him. He was coaxed, begged, and threatent'd according to those who know, that all might get into the Yates band wagon. The -whites of Springfield have never experienced such trouble with the negroes as that of the present summer. "Just now these same fellows are charging that Governor Deneen has not acted quickly in attempting to put down the rioting. In other words, they would seem to attempt to throw •RICES FOR POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENTS. -Rate and National offices.110.00 'ounty offices . 5.00 Mayor of Springfield . 5.00 Regular write-ups, 10 cents per ' line. Ten-line notice one time, that matter into the political areas with the purpose of weakening tha cause of the governor politiealiy. Such a course measures up In accordance with the standard of what they have been doing in the past. ‘•They have caused the negro refu gees to believe the same thing. Those who were in Clinton this week talked of the delay on the part of the execu tive. People in DeWitt county will take no stock in any such talk as that. They have stood for the cause of the former governor but when it conies to an attempt to make political capital out of the riot for the benefit of any one, the icople here in this county will not tolerate it. There is not one, only who is blind to the truth, except be lieves Governor Deneen lias done hiij whole duty. Four thousand two hun dred of the state’s militia now patrol the streets of Springfield. They were there within a few hours of the begin ning of the trouble. The promptness with which tile governor lias acted will strengthen him with the people, and will lose to those who are attempt ing to lessen his work in the eyes of the voters of this state. If there Is any one thing which can be rightfully charged against Governor Deneen, it Is his sincerity in his work. He has been thoroughly sincere in the work of putting down the rioting. He has accomplished it and the words uttered l>y those who have been foremost in accusing him will now rebound to fheir harm. What has occurred should be a lesson to those who have been using the negroes politically.”—Clinton Public. <§» <$» Not a Weak-Kneed Governor ‘•Springfield owes it to Governor D* neen's prompt and decisive action In calling out the state troops that its loss of life and property was not great er than it Is already called upon to face.

Governor Deneen neither hesitated or faltered in hand ling the situation and his clear, frank statement as to his intentions and his purpose in enforcing the law. at what ever cost, certainly helped in quieting the trouble. He acted not the part of a weak-kneed governor.”—Kewanee Star Courier. <3* Will Make Friends for Deneen. “The promptness and the determined manner shown by Governor Deneen in putting down the riots at Springfield shows that the people of Illinois have in the state-house a man who means business when it comes to dealing with lawbreakers. The governor’s de termined stand will result in making many friends lor him who before the primaries were against him.”—Chica go Heights Star. «|* <$> Praise for Deneen. “The prompt and efficient manner in which Governor Doneeu acted during the Springfield riot has brought forth many words of praise and commenda tion from law-abiding citizens all over Illinois.
