He wus unanimously placed at tho
head of the ticket. He had uo oppo

houor was thrust upon him, declared
ho did not want it He said so at tlio
conclusion of one of tho most im
pressive speeches ever made before a
Democratic convention. He said ho
was physically unable to lend the
fight, and his financial affairs were in
bad shape and needed his attention.
No sooner had lie mentioned his do
sire to retire from public life than
thero came an Impassioned shout of
disapproval, not only from tho dele
gates, but frcrn thousands of pcoplo
who were crowded in the hall. It
was n strange convention, and will
not soon be forgotten. It was In ses
sion only a little over five hours.
Nearly all tho candidates were nomi
nated by acclamation. There was no
strife. Theio were no nccrimonious
speeches save those directed against
tho enemy.
The convention came out strongly
for free silver, und so instructed its
dclegutes-at-liirge to the National
convention. The platform was almost
diametrically opposite in all its parts
to that of tho Republican party, and
the 1,0(10 delegates voted unanimously
for its udoption.
The following delegatcs-at-largo to
the convention at Chicago were then
reported: John 1'. Altgeld and Sam
uel P. McConncll, Chicago; W. II.
lienrichsen, Jacksonville, and George
W. Filliian of Jasper county.
No instructions wero given for Pres
ident. Governor Altseld's Address.
While waiting for tho committee on
resolutions to report Governor Alt
geld stepped upon the platform, and
for several rcinutcs there was the
most enthusiastic uproar that had
yet been witnessed. He was called
for, when ho stepped forward und
said, in part:
"Four years ago our people met
under brighter skies. Wo swept the
country bv such a majority that fidel
ity to Democratic principles would
have insured supremacy for a quarter
of a century, llut before the inaug
ural festivities had ceased at Wash
ington the head of the administration
sought strange gods and espoused
alien principles. Tho interests of
money were placed above those of hu
manity. Organized greed was fed
with golden spoons, while tho cry of
the husbandman was unheeded and
the sweat of the toilor brought him
no bread.
"The Republicans had inherited tho
principles of Hamilton, according to
which the government should be a
convenience for the rich. Our Presi
dent tried to crowd them out and to
place. his owu feet on this ground. As
the months rolled by. every principle
that is vital to republican institution
was violated and every precept of Jef
ferson, every doctrine fundamental to
Democracy, was trampled' into Hie
earth. Since then defeat has followed
dishonor until we have lost even what
wo formerly had.
"All might have been well if tho
administration had respected repub
lican institutions, and not used its
great powers to increase the burdens
of our people for the benefit of for
eign and Eastern shylocks.
"Hut the spirit of Democracy is im
mortal. "To-day the Democratic hosts are
again mustering on the plain. Un
fortunately, we have pursued a course
which lias led men to question our
Democracy, and to doubt our profes
sions. We have allowed ourselves to
be influenced by men who have not a
drop of Democratic blood in their
"The first thing necessary for us to
do ic to stand for something definite,
stand fur those principles upon which
the hope of humanity depends. If we
do tills, and once show the people that
we are in earnest, no power in this
land can prevent our shaping the
policy and guiding the destinies of the
Mark Hiinna's Trust.

who have made million out of the

other harvest by governmental aid,
were not only in control, but filled

It was the most brazen effort on the
part of organized greed ihat was ever
witnessed in this country. If the
Democratic party will bo true to its
missiou, If it will not weaken itself
1th compromises, or destroy its
strength by adopting a neutral course,
then tho ticket placed in nomination
at St. Louis will be deail long before
tlio frosts of November come. If the
