N. J. Pillabury receiving 11 votes, and tho Hon. 0. E. Starr 6 votes. Tho Convention then proceeded to take a formal ballot, which resulted in tho Hon. N. J. Pillshury receiving tho unanimous vote cf tho Convention. W. H. Qrinell and H. Danforth were appointed by tho Chair as a committee to inform Mr. Pillabury of. his nomination, who in accepting tho same, made the following remarks: Mn. Chaiuman and Gentlemen op toe Conven tion : I return to you my sincere thanks for tho houor you have conferred upon me, and the confidence you have reposed in me, and It In my earnest, greatest, and only desire that I may hereafter bo conduct my- Bolf that such confidence shall never bo abused or for feited. 1 fool tho moro grateful from the fact that you members of this Convention are not within tho palo of any ono political party, but have, In obedience to tho call of your constituents, thrown aside all partisan feeling and prejudice, and Joined hands in working together for wbatyomconsldcr to be tho best interests of tho people, I eeo here representatives of the great loading Interest of Illinois, that Interest which is her wealth and power, and has given her such a proud po sition in tho sisterhood of States, Representatives also of an organization that, though yet in its infancy, has made its influence felt; an organization that has done moro in tho short period of its existence to create thought and extend inleUJgonco among the masses of tho people than the harangues and speeches of party loaders for the last quarter of a century. Tho people aro thinking, Judging for themselves of what they need. They aro awakening to a true sense of their powers In tbo land, aud demanding that their rights shall bo maintained, and their wrongs redressed. You and your co-laborers in this movement bavo for so long felt the injustice, extortion, and op firession of monopolies of various kinds, that longer orbearanco has ceased to be a virtue, and now you have arisen in your might, thrown aside the shackles that have so long hound you to party, and united, as ono common brotherhood, have avowed your holy purpose of never ceasing your efforts for tho good of tho whole people until you have obtained, from overy tribunal, a recognition of your rights do dared by you in tho fundamental law of this Btato. I am iu full sympathy with you in asserting your rights aud maintaining them. Ido not understand, however, that you ask that tho relative positions of monopolies and tho people should bo re versed, that they should become tho oppressed and you the oppressors; that they should be ground into dust by tbo mighty tread of-tho millions of tho Republic, while you glo&t in triumph over their fallen condition. If 1 did, I as a man who hates wrong and oppression in every form, would scorn the’positlou you have this day resolved to bestow upon mo, but having unbound ed faith in the great thinking mass of the people,—in their love of right, of Justice, and of law,—l believe, I know, that all you demand and require is, that tho legislative, judicial, and executive departments of the Government shall declare and maintain that no char tered monopoly has any vested right to wrong aud op press their creators; that they shall he compelled to do equal and exact Justice to every per son and community in tho land ; that they shall bo taught to know that the laws of this State, passed in compliance with o Constitution adopted by 120,000 majority of tho freemen of Illinois, shall be obeyed by them as well as by you, and upon this plat form of equal aud exact Justice to all, demand ing prompt obedience to all constitutional laws, from every person, association, aud corporation. Maintaining that the people have tho right and power to prevent and punish tho com mission of wrong by any and all monopolies by and through tho OodsLUulloq and laws of tho land, I cheer fully place myself (and trust the people of'lhis district will Investigate my record upon these questions, the honesty of my expressed opinions, and vindicate my position at (ho polls. I believed thus when, la tho Constitutional Convention of 1870, I voted for tho Railroad Article, that article which is tho beacon light of tho Illinois farmer, the foundation

stono upon which tho people can and will, iu time, erect an edifice wherein tho railroad companies of this Stale will find equal rights with tbo people, yot in which no wrong or injustice shall or will bo perpe trated upon them. I believed so then, I bclievo so now, and ever shall until tho highest judicial tribunal in this Republic declares that 1 am wrong { but beyond tho statement of my opinions and bcuiof upon the general principles underlying tho farmers' movement I cannot and will not, aa a candidate for Judicial posi tion, pledge myself.—neither do I supposq that you, as honest men, who lovo an independent judiciary, who upon any particular case desire an unpledged one, would desire me to go further. I, however, assure you that should you elect mo Judge of this Circuit, it will be my highest duty to use my best efforts to enforce all tho constitutional laws of this Btato, Irrespective of in dividuals or corporations ; and, whllo distrusting my ability, aud feeling tho weighty responsibility resting upon mo if elected, I will endeavor to perform my whole duty to the best of my power, skill and ability, aud. with grateful feelings to you for selecting me as your candidate for Judgo, I again return you my heartfelt thanks, ' ' The proceedings were marked by a spirit of harmony and good fooling solddm, if over, wit nessed in conventions of a similar nature. Tlio Republican Convention In tlio Second Circuit—Ono Hundred and Seventy-five Ballots Without Re- ■ lilt. Marengo, McHenry Co., 111., May 20.—W0 are having an exciting contest hero. The Republi can Judicial Convention for tho Second Circuit (McHenry, Boone, DoKnlb and Lake Counties), mot hero, yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock, to nominate a candidate for Circuit Judge. Tho balloting has boon in prog ress all afternoon and' all night with out a result. Tho contest is between Judge T. D. Murphy, of McHenry County, tho present incumbent, Charles Kollum, of ftoKalb, and T. E. Clark, of Lake. Tho frlouds of Kollum and Clark are united against Murpuy, and Murphy’s friends are firm for their man. Up to this morning there had boon 175 ballots, in all of which Murphy received 4 voles from Boono, 7 from McHenry, and 1 from Lake. Tho 7 votes for DeKalb and tho other C from Lake wore each time cast for either Kollum or Clark. There is no prospect of a change, and, therefore, no prospect of a choice. It is a dead lock. None of Murpuy’s'friouds will forsake him, and none of his opponents can bo budged an iucb in his favor. It is a nice little fi’fht as it stands, with no prospect of a chango. Both sides declare they will stand their ground until election day, which is a week from next Monday. NEW YORK. Tho Thompson Street Tragedy—Ar rest of tlio lUunloror—Tho Veto of the JLocnl Option 11111 —Ocorgo Francis Train Judged Insane—Po lice Commissioners—Miscellaneous Local Items* Stxctal Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, New York, May 20.—Tbo last theory of tho police Id regard to tho Thompson street murder has proved to bo correct. At 2:45 o’clock this afternoon James Brown, a negro, hailing from ■Washington, temporarily stopping at a negro thieves’ resort under Goldin's liquor store, kept by Solomon Bolding, ot tho comer of Houston street and South Fifth avenue, entered tho Eighth Precinct and informed Capt. McOullogh and Sorgt, Schultz, that Jim Jacksou, tho murderer, was at that time conceal ed In tho house mentioned above. The Captain and Sorgt. Schultz at once wont to tho place in dicated, and in an inner room, used as a store-room, found Jackson stretched out on two window-shutters, with a gash in his throat four inches long and very deep. Only tho su perficial vessels wore severed, tho carotid ar teries and Jugular vein having been missed, by a miracle. Jackson, on seeing tho officers, said ho was glad they came, as ho intended to givo himself up as soon as ho was able. He admitted that ho struck tho deceased throe or four times while in the street, but denies having killed her. Ho says that ho took her homo and loft her there, and then wont out. When ho returned ho found her lying at tho foot of tho stairs dead, and is of tho opinion that she fell down stairs after ho loft her. Ho then carried her up-stairs and laid her in bed, and loft tho place, fearing that ho would ho ar rested as her murderer, aud wont to an out-houso in Sullivan street and cut bis throat. Ho refused to tell who carried him to whore ho was found. Ho was taken to tho police-station, and a sur geon was summoned. Ho pronounced tho in juries severe, but not necessarily fatal. Tho wound had never been dressed. Jackson was sent to Collovuo Hospital for treatment. A vast crowd of colored persons assembled in tbo neigh borhood, but no demonstration was made as tho prisoner was driven off. Tho poor wrotch was in a state of fearful nervousness. His limbs trembled, and ho gavo his statement in a very jumbled and disconnected manner. Brown says that ho stumbled over the fugitive by acci dent. while looking for something in tho cellar, and immediately recognized him. Ho adds that Jackacm admitted to him that ho had killed his “woman,” and that he intended to leave for Chicago to-night. Jackson's description of his attempted suicide is curious. Ho says that after killing his mis tress, ho mot a mulatto friend to whom ho told what ho had done. Tho latter advisedhim to cut his throat, and lent him a razor and accompanied him to tho water-closet to witness tho deed. Just as Jackson was about to draw the weapon across his throat, his considerate friend caught his hand and suggested that ho might bo acting rashly, as perhaps tbo woman was not dead. Thou tolling him to wait until ho ascertained, ho ran around to the- house in Thompson street for that purpose. Jackson says ho waited a while, hat becoming impatient, concluded to kill himself anyhow. Ho remembers no more until this morning. ' Tho trial of George Francis Train on thoebargo of issuing obscene publications, was summarily concluded to-day, amid a scone of unparalleled excitement. Tho prosecution rested yesterday on the testimony of Anthony J. Comstock, and Nicholas, Train’s photographer. This morning Mr. Howe, of Train’s counsel, moved that tho Court direct tho jury to acquit, on tho ground that tho statute is unconstitutional. He held that if the act was liberally construed, every man having in his possession nude statuary, or tho works of Paine, Smollett, and Pope was liable to indictment. Justice Davis denied tho motion, saying that bo had not tho least doubt but that tho law was constitutional. Counsel then briefly opened for tho defense, relying mainly on tho statement that tho matter published consisted of extracts from tho Bible. Ho thou attempted to road selections from Borneo, but Judge Davis stopped him, saying that Suakspcaro was not on trial. Similar at tempts to read from Smollot, Byron, and Field ing were treated in tho like peremptory manner. Exceptions having boon taken, Sir. Howe called Dr. Cross, one of the exports, who had testified to Train’s insanity on tho inquisition do luua tico. After a few preliminary questions had boon asked him by Mr. Bell, Assistant District Attorney Lyons said, that having called exports to testify that Mr. Train was insane, ho coula not now put in testimony in rebuttal and was pre fiared to admit insanity at the time of tho pub ication of tho Train Ligue, Mr. Bell claimed ' that, if tbo District Attorney believed that, ho should outer a nolle prosequi. Judge Davis re torted that ho would not permit such a thing to bo done. Mr. 801 l then demanded that the Court should direct a verdict of “not guilty.” Mr. Lyon said that would bo satisfactory to him. Judge Davis thereupon directed tho Jury to find a verdict of "not guilty," on tho ground of insanity, which was done. Two of tho jurors arising and saying that such was not their verdict, Train’s counsel demanded that tho Jury bo polled, but Judge Davis refused. In an instant all was up roar. All tho parties interested sprung to their feet and began talking at once, and gesticulat ing wildly, while spectators crowded forward and made the room ring with laughter. Order having been restored, Assistant District Attorney Lyon moved for Train’s commitment to the Lunatic Asylum. Mr. 801 l protested that there had boon no proof of Mr. Train’s lunacy, oithon East or present, and the Sheriff’s jury hud held im now sane. Judge Davis, turning to Dr. Cross, said, “Do you still consider this man insane ?" “ Yob. sir s I bollovo it chronic." “All right, Mr. clerk," said tho Judge, “ make out tho commitment.
