This is the dav of republican effort. the occasion to whbh the nartv has directed its every effort to make it me grana pyrotechnic, spectacular event of the campaign. Shclbv M.

Clements and F. S. Post as the lesser luminaries. The weather is characteristic of the attraction, but nevertheless the lo cal contingent of the party will un cork its enthusiasm for all it is worth tonight, and do its best at making a good showing. Shelby and his associates are to speak at liar, per's theatre tonight, and a full house is guaranteed. Shelby's Claim to Fane. In view of the fact that the Illinois senator lavs claim to fame as one of the country's most distinguished statesmen, even to aspire to the presidency, it will le interesting to review some of his most distin guished public services. His great argument thronghout the state, it will he remembered, is that he is the steadfast friend of the workingmen, the standard of whose wages he hits the audacity to state, he has stead- lasiiy striven lor, and hence the im portance of his first public service in the state of Illinois in their behalf. This was when as governor of Illi nois he vetoed the bill to abolish the iniquitous "truck store" system, which then prevailed in the coal mines and among other industries where its practice was made possible. it was during the session of the leg islature of 1S7K-79 that popular at tention was directed to the gross abuses that had grown up tinder the trucK store" system and the law to correct these abuses was enacted in obedience to a popular demand whose meaning was loo plain to lie ignored by even the most calloused. "Under the truck store system between 30, 000 and 50,000 miners and workers in other industrial lines became, with their families, virtual slaves. It was the practice of the corporations to pay employes in supplies from the companvs store," and to such a nicctv was the business carried on and prices fixed that men worked month after month and year after year without ever seeing one dollar in nioncv. fcverv dollar of their earnings was confiscated bv "the company" in the .payment of sup plies, ami as time went on the greed of the men in power increased to such an extent that the merchandise forced upon the working people was marked up to the extreme limit of a cut throat standard. This resulted in the condition of the workingmen and their families becoming unbearable. The matter was brought before the legislature through the agency of labor organ ization, and "an act to protect labor ers, miners, mechanics and mer chants" was introduced. It passed me nouse iy a vote of 107 lor to 12 against. The senate passed the measure by a vote of 27 yeas and 17 nays. It went to the governor for approval May 27, 1879, and on Mav 31, four days after the passage of the iin, tne general assembly adjourned sine die. rotir davs later, June 4 the governor filed the bill to the sec retary of state with his veto. Srrvlce to the Railroad. The one thing in which he may be said to nave taken part in national legislation was to help pass the inter state commerce bill, which for two or three vears was supposed to be in the interest of shippers. It is now known that the bill fathered by Mr. Cullom was framed bv corporation attorneys, wholly in the interest of the railroads, as was demonstrated the past summer. It was built so loosely and with such reck less disregard of constitutional rights that its enforcement in the interest of the people has been a farce from the first. In the language of a cele brated corporation lawyer, "The bill was made so that we (the railroads) can drive a 4-norse team through every section." "Iruck Bill Cullom" does not boast any more about being the father" of the interstate commerce bill. He is very willing the people should forget he had anything to do with it. He would like to pose as the special friend and champion of iaior. The Senator Arrives. The senator, accompanied by Con gressman Post, arrived over the Mil waukee from Fulton and Sterling this morning at 10:45, and being met at the depot by a number of ambitious members of the party, headed by mairman . a. v oiling, oi tne con gressional committee, was escorted to the Harper.
