It is not a pleasant commentary on the
merit of the republican congressional
timber in the Eleventh congressional dis
trict that in the relection of a candidate
for the lower house it conld not have
mustered the strength to have overcorre
the manipulations of the Marsh machiie.
and found a man It does not speak a great
deal for the republican idea and estima
t on of the stock of its other candidnteB
suitable for the bigh honor to be be
stowed to ih u joun or old, it could
find none otlur entirely qualified but the
weatherworn old aristocrat, who 10
vetra ago pr cip t d a rev .lution in the
prt? and eaisii bis own and his party's
defeat. M.rsh, wbo bas agnin tnus im
pv-ed r.imseif upon the party, is a
cbron'c .iffl.'-e set kt r whoee single idea is
o bold ofHc3, regardless of bis fitners or
c-ipacity. or the propriety of bis candi
dacy cither to bis party or to himself.
Ten Years Ago.
Ten years ngo, the last time he ran for
congress, his candidacy resulted in open
rebellion within the ranks of his pnrty,
the most violent that has ever attended a
campaign in Illinois. For the three terms
preceding tbe year 1SS3, Marsh had oc
cupied a seat in tbe lower house and he
had done so little for bis district except
to draw his pay that his own party be
came thoroughly sick of him. and when
he refused to stand aside and permit the
nomination of a more suitable man, such
as Maj, McClaushry. and insisted on a re
nomination that be was not entitled to,
tbe rarty simply went into the court ot
last resi.rt and won its suit through tbe
medium of ti e ballot box. It was sup
posed then that tbe parly had ridded it
self of the Man-h load but not so. Ten
years afterward it finds itself incumbered
with the tame burden, heavier but cling
ing more tenaciously than ever before.
This time it will probably be relieved of
the load in a manner that will free it of
it for all lime to come this as far
Marsh is concerned.
While tbe party indignation ran high
10 years aco, there was no more open
an i pointed opposition than that card' d
on by tbe newspapers. The Union of
this city ws particularly scathing in its
attneks uoon tbe chronic and its rebuke
of the convention for renominating him
In its comments upon the nomination it
said in its issue f Aug. 20, 1882:
The action of the republican congres
' si nai conveniion on the Hancock count7
content is very generally regretted by
Rock Islanders, as not only being a viola
Inticn of the rights of the people, but as
se ling a irecedent which will invite
similar d:sturbcces and contests in the
future, b. desperate and unprincipled poli
tician. Tbe McCiaugbry men of tlan
co;k county were so clearly in the right
that the committee on credentials should
have had no hesitancy in unanimously re
poriin g in their fuvor. The committee was
made i p of four Marsh adherents and
two other, and tbe Marsh majority were
more bent on making certain the nomina'
lion of their candidate than on vindicating
the mnjes'i of the people. Il was tht-ir
du'y t report in fawr of the regular
delegation, t vjn if in doing so they sac
rificed .heir favorite's chances,
and the duty was cer
tainly no less imperative though far
easier to see and perform, when it d'd
not change tbe assured result that they
are seeking, but merely left the majority
nearer than was desired. By doing tbe
right thing at the right time the commit,
tie and the convention had the opportu
nity to remote all cause for serious dif
ferences and disaffection In Hsn;ock
county, and put ell possible bolters on
tbe defensive By perpetrating an inex
cusable wrong sli;-. convention not only
invited a bolt, but placed tbe rightful
deli-ga'.ioo in a :oritioti wb-.Ti they could
only vindicate tbe psople wis seat thera,
and their own telf-rt sect. iu withdraw
ing. Tbe Carfbag? G:zet'. the lea-linjj re
publican paper of Hancock county,
Marsh's own county, openly refused to
support Col. Marsh's candidacy, and in
explanation of its course said:
Ween recignizs anl admit the possi
bility of a regularly nominated candidate
beintr o obnoxlou that no obligation to
vote for him can rest fipon any man who
has a particle of manliness or independ
ence We cannot vote for him with
out loss of Belf-respect and sacrifice of
conscience; as our sense of manliness
ahdiioidpendence forbid9 our so voting
we a'fte tbe right to bolt.
The Aledo Record spoke of the nomina
tion of Marsh as precipitating a "deplora
ble state of affairs which theRacori sought
to avoid and now stares us in the face."
The same paper condemned the practices
employed by Marsh to secure tbe nomi
nation and while it lent Its support to his
candidacy it did so reluctantly.
That a maa with such a political
record, having been so repudiated by his
own party, having caused its defeat to
satisfy bis unconquerable desire for office
should again have the audacity to seek a
norriaation, much less demand and se
cure it. is regarded by self-respecting re
publicans as a species of presumption and
nerve, so to speak. not common to politi
cal annals B it Marsh has again suc
ceeded in forcing himself on bis party,
ju9t be did 10 years ago. He has laid
claim to and captured a nomination that
he had no right or reason to ai-k for. He
has not only asked for It, bat taken it.
He is a political impostor anl a politica'
nuisance and the repubiicm party of the
Eleventh district should kick him out of
doors as was done 10 years ago, at d this
time bolt the door against bint for all
time to come

Lieut. Seh wat kit's Trace Death.
Later reports confirm the sad news cons
tained in The Argus last evening of the
sudden death of Lieut. Frederick
Schwatka at Portland, Ore. On account
of the fact that a bottle of laudanum was
found by the lieutenant's side when dis
covered, the report has gone abroad that
he bad suicided, but this report is now
denied, he having been taking it as med
icine. Mrs. Schwatka and h( r 6-year-old
daughter, Freida are in this city at the
home of Capt. Brackett. Lieutenant
Schwatka's mother resides in Salem, Ore.,
and his remains will be interred there be
side those of his father. Tbe distance be

her here this morning written by tbe

The SaTe Way for Democrat to Vote on
The Argus republi6hestbe sample of
the ballot to be voted next Tuesday, for the
instruction of yoters. According to the
law under which the Australian system
was adopted in Illinois, the democratic
column should be first on the ticket, but
the form sent out by the secretary of state
places the republican first.
In order to avoid confusion and error,
democrats should mark a cross in the cir

the ticket thus that means the straight

An Open Letter.
To the Man of tbe House: Did nou
notice at supper tonight that perhaps
htl of the plates on tbe table were
chipped or c-acked a little, and perhaps
several of tbe tea cups as well? Wasn't
tbe platter nicked a little on one side?
Now, your wife probably sees these
things every time she sits down to the
table. She never says anything about it,
of course; but don't you think she'd be
very much pleased if she had a complete
new, sound pretty set of dishes? I be
lieve she would.
Just turn now to my advertisement on
the fifth page of this paper, and put this
and that together. Don't you think it's
a goat idea. G. M. Loos ley.
