Sprino Field 111., March 11.�?Gen. Palmer will be elected senator the first ballot to Day. This prediction is based the final action Cockrell and Moore tuesday Eveian in formally renouncing . Streeter and declaring their intention voting for general Palmer. At a cd inference lasting nearly the whole afternoon cock Rell and Moore prepared the following Public address which Fohey have submitted for publication a to the Farmer Mutual Benefit association the state Illinois we your representatives at the beginning the session the general Assembly Illinois with the desire our constituents and our order throughout the state resolved to make an honest Manly and Earnest Effort to elect to the United states Senate a Man who would truly represent the principles and declarations the great Independent Industrial movement which has grown up in the land Lithe last few years. In accordance with this policy we considered the names several the men who tand High inthe Independent organizations and finally selected a. J. Streeter As the Man who As we thought More fully represented the Independent movement than any other Man. A a we have stood Here i by weeks making an Earne i Effort to elect the Man our Choice to the unit d state Suft Ste. We have a fused to make any concessions principles to either the a id political parties. We had a Hope not unreasonable but natural that any help from either the old parties would coma from the Republican party which like ourselves was in the minority in this general Assembly and in the state Illinois. We have in View this from time to time met with the representatives the Republican party and afforded them every Opportunity electing to the United state s Senate a True representative our principles. In order to enable them to act with us in the no utter we have in acquiescence to that r. Quest adjourned whenever an adjournment was desired by them refusing to vote whenever they desired us not to vote in the Hope that ultimately they would set e fit to a is a it in electing an untrammelled the Independent movement to the Una a state Senate. A we hoped that our Republican friends would View this in the Light perhaps,.not a Republican Victory but a Means enabling them by to Quot election an Independent to place their political enemies at a disadvantage in the coming cont to throughout the state at 1 in the City Chicago. Although Defeated at the polls by the people the republicans had an Opportunity by throwing their strength to the Job Pement representative Gratifying their ambition to defeat tied to Era tic party at this time and thereby place them at a disadvantage throughout fhe state and atom. Professing to desire to Acqua Soe in the election an Independent they have negotiated with us and an inclination to supp it . Street to l it instead a Ting psf lbs others they Havad fam to Wiesw a i it and prolong d the test a and finally to Fiorin our declarations that tin United a status senator be an in dept nil it they have by Litt 1 a. Sought and obtained irem our m Minee such concessions and Promise a would if carried out. A entirely unfit him from conscientiously representing the 1 Vinci pies the Independent organization. Vivek fab r week has paed without any satisfactory result and finally we with the people in Tate Illinois have wearied this contest and determined that it is due to our e a Titu ends and to that taxpayers the state that this senatorial fight should be brought to a close. A finding it absolutely Impo sible to elect Independent a Man who can Reorg ent in Tramm led and unshackled the views our organization we have concluded that our next duty is the Sefi Eton As near a possible a Man who while not representing the principles our organization a full is in sympathy with Many our demands and concedes Towt Fredk redress in the legislation which has been permitted to grow up under the Rule corporations and monopolies. We have conned a that the voice the people let the state at Large should be respected in the cd ice a cited state senator. And that voice so far a has been expressed in the lat Quot election. A been expressed in behalf Goa. A John m. Palmer and the principle electing a United states senator by the direct vat the people a a principle which our organizations fully acid earnestly endorse. By a plurality 30.10 the electors Illinois have shown the preference for this candidate John m. Calmer. A becoming sati id that we cannot elect a Man who would fully represent our people we have called . Palmer in the interest our people to ascertain what us Ranics and hop it he would f Ive a in regal 1 to it a fits future a official action All acting such be is Lati n As our people demand this interview we Mut say was satisfactory even beyond our expectations. Njmen. Palmer has earned our admiration in his Manly Way conducting i fight this Winter in refusing to allow any corrupt influence to be used in his behalf to secure his election. He has said All the time that he did not intend want to go to the United states Senate in that Way even telling us that he did not pro pos to go to hell by Way the United states while he does not fully represent us he has forced us to believe that he is an honest Man. It j a a while this has to. N a prolonged contest we feel that the effect has been Good that it has forced the politicians to admit thut there is something wrong. And we believe that the attention the mass is has been drawn to the matter and Tho result to follow must ire Good and beneficial. From what we Hae seen Here we arc More Al Reily convinced than Ever that the future Prosperity and happiness this country depend the Success and growth an Independent party. More firmly than Ever Are we convinced that an Independent political movement by the toiling millions the country is the Only Hope the people. A submitting to the candid judgment the people our course in this general Assembly and in View the facts As above stated to will to Morrow cast our votes for John m. Palmer and bring this prolonged contest to a a James Cockrell a a a. H. the three Farmers Quot Mutual Benefit association men called Gen.

John m. Palmer to the United states Senate to it succeed liar Les b. Farwell has been one the most prolonged and interesting death locks recorded in the annals american politics. It was begun at the first joint session the present legislature 011 the 20th january. The three political parties represented in the legislature went into the joint session the democrats firm in the support Gen. Palmer who was put in nomination by the state convention while the republicans and Farmers had caucus nominees. The first ballot taken showed the respective strength the parties resulting Palmer 1 til Oglesby 100, Streeter 3. Ballot after ballot was taken with unvarying results. The Republican caucus which had put sex gov. Oglesby in nomination Hall attached a string to the nomination pm Viding that the steering committed might withdraw Oglesby and substitute another candidate if it seemed Wise to a to so. This action was not taken until february 11. When Cicero i. Lindley was put Forward As the Republican candidate. The Day before the Farmers had changed their candidate. Dropping Streeter and casting their United vote for John p. Stelle. The banners did not take the bait off red by the republicans who proffered a Long list candidates from whom they might choose. The next move the republicans was to throw As much their vote a could be controlled to Streeter Ami for some time he has posed As the Republican candidate. Five republicans however have persistently refused to support him. For the last few Days the Republican minority has been badly split up and a determined Effort to rally their full strength about Streeter failed. The illness Mem la ers Joth sides the House has led to Many failures to secure a quorum and it it a More than one occasion sick Unn have been brought to the Hall litters to vote. John m.

He i it 0 the Law office John l Greathouse to e 1 the leading lawyer Maco Upin countr. He studied hard Ami in less than two months became interested in local politics. The upshot it All was that he became the democratic candidate for county clerk but was beaten by 121 votes. 5�?Tears afterwards he was again a candidate and was elect i.

He was elected to the state Senate and soon afterwards began the fight which administered to Stephen a. Doff Las the first great defeat his life. His military career is one w hich he is especially proud. With the first Call f r troops he abandoned the Law and was made colonel the fourteenth Illinois.
