His many friends here will hone to bear of his nomi nation, which means an election. The Chicago Evening Tost prints a doable column cut of Hon. William Prentiss, formerly of Macomb, and well known in this city as democratic candidate for congress in the old Eleventh districts few years aro. and pays a haadaoma tribute to him as f he oaly candidate from Eraastoa for circuit judge in Cook county. Mr. Prentiss is running on the demo cratic ticket. He advanced rapidly la public life since moving to Chicago. It is said that the visitors to the World's fair have paid 930.000.000 Into the pockets of the various con. resaloaaires, most of which were oa the Midway.

Senator Voorhecs was quite right in reminding senator ftaermaa that it will be time enough to consider measures for the relief of the treasurv when the president or the secretary of the treasury shall ask for assis tance. He was right, too. in affirm ing that the finances of the nation could not be In safer hands than those of President Cleveland and Sec. retary Carlisle. Senator Gorman put in a just and timely word also ia showing that the Impeading deficiency in the treasury, the loss of gold and the trouble re selling from the Sherman net are all dua to republican misrule. The re minder might not have been necessa ry had not Senator Sherman and oth er republicans come forward with suggestions Intended to make party capital for their side. Kepablican statesmen had their in nings for tour yean and they should be a little modest In attempting to run things after the people have turned them out. Thev found a treasury surplus and left a deficit. They found an excess of revenue and left a lack. They received an ac cumulation of nearly 9100.000.000 of gold above the legal reserve and returned less than 91.000.000. They found silvercoJnage law that, what ever it faults, did not immediately threaten the stabilitr of the cur reaey. Thev substituted a policy of ailver purchases and treasury note Issues which dragged the country in to n panic They diminished revenue While raising taxes, and increased tariff bounties without increasing Waea. The assistance of republicans in correcting the evil which they wrought is cordially received and recogalsed.
