ILLINOIS DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM.
The following is the platform adoptcil ;
Patriotic dutj aud mtcrist demand peace
and reconciliation through all the land.
We pledge ourselves to the following prin
riples: First No tariff for protection.
Second No third term.
, , Third A substantial reform ot the civil
service do that federal olhcera bliull be tin:
servants of the people and not of a party.
Fourth Equal rights to all the states,
and no federal interference with the con
stitutional functions of states.
Fifth A constitutional currency of gold
Rod silver, and of paper convertible into
Bixth No more land grants to monopo
lies. Seventh The will of the people must be
supreme and majorities must rule under the
constitutional methods. No more such
frauds as that of 187(1 no more 8 to 7.
Eighth That laws shall be enacted to
protect laborers in the more prompt and
certain collection of their wages.
Tub following, from Judge Trumbull's
speech before the Illinois Democratic con
vention, uceds no comment:
"I had occasion the other day to step
into their national convention at Chicago.
' And what did I seo looking down upon
that convention? There were the potraits
of Chase, of Reward, of Fossenden, of
Sumner aud of Greeley, whom, by slander
and falsehood they hounded to their irravcs.

If the various congressmen could have
eommunicakd with each other last fall,
and agreed that whatever wm recommend
ed by Oje ilepartmenuilortbe'rcguhr appro
priationi should be considered asgrantcd.as
much wor4d have beon accomplished with,
out meeting; as has bed by a six months ses
sion. Aside from 1e appropriation bills
there has not beer an important measure
made law, unlew the questionable bill ap
proving the Scurz agreement with the Uto
chiefs bo io considered. The tmilT
should have been revised. Our Indian sys
tem should have, been changed. Apian
should have been adopted for the
countirg of tbo electoral vote.
Something should have been done both
partes being willing to give us a non
psrtisan supervision of elections, if federal
suptivision is to be continued. It can
safely be said of the session, however, that
jobs did not flourish, and that the one r;rcat
questionable measure of the session the
river and harbor bill, appropriating some
nine millions was more thoroughly con
sidered as to its details than ever before.
So, the session having been honest, we
may forgive many of its shortcomings, and
hope that the 6amc congress, when it as
sembles in December, the presidential elec
tion being over, will have more courage
and will do its duty better.
While the Republicans have been pro
claiming themselves the champions of free
and honest elections and of the rights of
American citizens, Senators Anthony and
Burnside, of Rhode Island, a state which
disfranchises a large portion of her voting
population, so as to keep an oligarchy of
Republicans in power, have received the
following note from their fellow-citizens :
"To the IIonorable Senators II. B.
Anthony axd A. E. Bcrnside Herewith
is inclosed and transmitted a copy of a
memorial which is now under consideration
by the respective committees of cither
branch of the national legislature. If not
directly responsible for the irregularities
therein referred to, you must be familiar
with most of the facts under consideration,
and have the power, likewise, to command
a redress of the grievances. It is to be
hoped that you will interpose and
save the nation the expense andi
Rhode Island the disgrace of a
third investigation by a congressional com
mittee. It need not here be reiterated that
the executive of the nation has it within
his power to interpose his authority, but as
by common courtesy such matters are left
with the congressional delegation of the
respective states, of which in Rhode Island
you are seniors, on you rests the responsi
bility. "Trusting that this matter may receive
your early and favorable consideration, and
Rhode Island may be spared the mortifica
tion which it is in your party to avert, I
have the honor to remain, your obedient
servant. J. B. Greene."
This memorial is the petition of thous
ands of disfranchised American citizens to
be given the right of suffrage. It rests
with Rhode Island to remedy the evil, but
her Republican legislatures are brought up
by the oligarchy, the hereditary officehold
ers, and there is no chance for the people
under Republican rule.
BOMETniWJ ABOUT THE CANDIDATE HIS
ORATORICAL fcTYLE OffiHISi,GRAND!EI
O.UE.NT GARFIELD MENTAL AND I'HYj-IC'AL
Washington, June 19th, ISfeO.
From our regular cerrcspondint.
Congress has left Washington, but the
capitol will be a centre of unusual interest
during the recess. Here will be the cam
paign headquarters for both political par
ties, and all through the dog day heats, ami
until what Mr. Garfield calls the melan
choly days of November, commands aud
supplies will be issued from Washington,
and the fierce strife waged in city and vil
lage, on plain and in dingle, will receive its
impulse and return its echo here.
Already clerks in all the departments
have organized, according to their several
states, and are prepared to do the work
they know so well how to do, for the party
that has so long kept them in sinecures at
the public expense.
Last night Mr. Garfield trumpeted the
key note of the campaign in a speech from
the balcony of the Rigg'H house, but it was
a note of uncertain sound, characteristic of
the cornet, and "who shall prepare himself
tor battle'!" I venture to predict that the
campaign will not be waged with much en
thusiasm on the part of the Republicans.
Mr. Garfield is not a candidate to excite en
thusiasm. Your correspondent haskuown
him tor thirteen years, and has studied
him, not because he is individually interest
ing, but because he is such a type as no
student of contemporary history can ignore.
It is true that Don Piatt and George Alfred
Townsend have recently written letters that
arc highly eulogistic of the candidate, aud
ingeniously exculpatory of his crooked
record. But it must bo remembered
that these gentlemen would each like to
have a foreign mission or at leafct a first
class consulship. Mr. Garfield, they say,
io a great scholar, a broud guagu statesman,
a brainy man. I do not think he is any of
these. I think hit) genius is chiefiy in his
lungs and other viHi.cra. His voice id like
the note of war; ho has tho famed appetito
of Boswt'U'a Iktm, and the digestion ol an
ore crusher, He is a superb animal. Mr.
Garfield's chieftest mental attribute is pre
cocity not profuudity. He is unripe, pre

maturely developed. He rose rapidly from
the helm of a canal boat to the head of a
fourth-rate college tor both sexes. His ad
vanccment had been rapid, but not remark
able, for, in an era and urea of low culture
flippant oratory is considered a proof of
genius, and - a resonant voice is mis
taken for oratory. None of Mr. Gar
fleld'a speeches, indeed scarcely a single
paragraph will bear literary criticism.
Gush and grandiloquence aro the charac
teristics of his style. Tho first time I
heard him speak was at a cellegc com
mencement twelve years ago, when ho ex
horted us in such platitudes as "to keep up
with the times, to press lorward to the van
and march abreast with tho latest thought."
Now reflecting men do not have to be very
old before they learn that tho latest thought
is not necessarily the best thought. But in
these few words I think we have key to
Mr. Garfield's mental tone. ' In religion,
politics, and science he believes in many
unsound or unsounded ' things. Jesus
Christ hesitated and asked: "What is
truth?" If Mr. Garfield could bo persuad
ed to answer he would say : "The newest

breath resumes its purity. Surely these are
attainable by the use of this sterling medi
cine. A CARD.

Haunted Me. A workmgman says:
poverty and "Debt, suffering haunted
me for years, caused by a
sick family and large bills for doctoring,
which did no good. I was completely dis
couraged, until one year ago, by the advice
of my pastor, I procured Hop Bitters and
commenced their use, and in one month we
were all well, and none of us have been
sick a day since; and I want to say to all
poor men. you can keep your families well
a year with Hop Bitters tor less than ont
doctor's visit will cost." Christian Advo

noying diseases in the world, and yet
all can find sure relief by the use of Dr.
Swayne's Ointment. It has been tested
in thousands of instance and invaria
bly makes a sure cure. The symptoms
are moisture, like perspiration, intense
itching, increased by scratching, very
distressing, particularly at night, as if

time affected. Procure this ointment.

120 BROADWAY NEW YOKK
The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
indicated by the fact that for Eleyen years its average an
nual New Business has been larger than that of any other
Company in the world, is due, in a great measure, to its well
known promptness in the payment of Death Claims, and its
rule never to take advantage of technicalities where an
equitable claim exists.
As a GUARANTEE of this,
