In Colorado Senator Wolcott Is iu similar danger, as he hns been subject to venomous criticism because he would not go ;o far as Senator Teller in his devotion to tho white metal. Add to this tho not altogether remote chance of los ing a Republican Senator in North Dakota and California, and the claims of the Democrats that we cannot elect in either Kansas 'or Illinois, and tho outlook is not rosy.

THAT IS HOW ILLINOIS STANDS POLITICALLY. The fioTernor Jtenomlnateil n tho Idol nd Leader of Democracy Tho Nomi nation Forced Upon lllm Against IIli l'roteit Every Vote Cant for llln Amidst a Furore of Enthnnlaim. The Illinois Democracy. Peoiha, 111., Juno 25. John P. Altgeld is the nominee of tho Demo cratic party for governor of Illinois. He wus unanimously placed at tho head of the ticket. He had uo oppo nent, and a few moments boforo the 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 veins. "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 reoublic. Mark Hiinna's Trust. "Last week there was held in St. Louis a convention which will be known in history as 'Mark H anna's trust.1 Railroad attorneys, corpora tion agents, lobbyists and tho.10 men who have made million out of the government, und are looking for an other harvest by governmental aid, were not only in control, but filled every pluce from chairman to page. 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 Democratic party will declare for an American policy, if It will boldly de clare that we must be true to our selves, und look after American in terests first, we will sweep tins country. He was followed by Champ Clark of Mlsiouri, who sounded the praises of Mr. Uland as a presidential candidate. General Gustavns W, Smith Dead.
