It is scarcely necessary for us to say much to'
the peoplsof Donipban County in favor of the
ticket nominated last xrceK. i ne men are an
known aud tried known to be of the very best
men in the Coanty.
F. H. Drcuuing, candidate for Senator, has oc
cupied the positiciu before, as well as that of
member of the Lower House. Ho has always
discharged his duties satisfactorily aud honora
bly, with a view to the public interest. He was
one of the first to respond to the call for troops
to fight against the rebellinu, and was the first
Kansas man to feel rebel lead, which he did in
the successful effort to capture the rebel flag at
Iatan. At Wilson's Creek, the first battle in
which -Kansas troops participated, he was seere
ly wounded in the hand, wh'ch disabled him for
further service. For some years, he held the of
fice of Deputy Assessor of Internal Revenue. In
this position, as in every other that he has filled,
he conducted his business with the strictest in
tegrity, and with a view to the public interest.
Frank Brown, tho-candidate for District Clerk,
enjoys a popularity of which any man might be
proud. Not ouly is he the nominee of both ings
of his own party, buj the Democracy have virtu
ally indorsed him, by making no nomination for
the office. When a man has held an office for
six years in a jonug State, the popnlatiou of
which is constantly changing, and where almost
everybody is office-hungry, this indorsement by
all parties is a high compliment to his integrity.
Joel Holt, oar candidate for County Attorney,
assumed the duties of his office two years ago,
with but little experience. He has filled the
v place well, and generally satisfactorily. He has
the ill-will of public offenders aud their friends,
because he has ever boen vigilant in bringing
them to jnstice; but on the other hand, be has
the favor of the better class of citizens, from
which he will rccei e a large vote, regardless of
parry and nominations.
John C. Gordon, caudidate for Probate Jndge,
has held the office for eight years, and no com
plaints have ever been made against him. The
fact that he has boen fonr times elected, each
time against determined opposition, seems con
clusive that a majority of the people are satisfied
D. D. Rose, our candidate for County Superin
tondantW Pnblra Instruction, Is a lecher of ex
perience, who has long been employed in the
public schools of the Connty, and is therefore ac
quainted with them, and knows their wants.
His education, combined with his practical expe
rience, pecniiarly fit him for the office which he
has held by appointment for several months past,
and has devoted bis time in making himself effi
cient in its administration. Hislabors as a teach
er have been, to a large extent, among the
schools of Wayne Township, where his popnlari
ty is great, and where he will receive a hand
some support from the people, no matter what
the trading politicians may do.
All in till, abetter ticket was never presented
to the people of Doniphan Connty. It is well
worthy of their support, and we have faith that
it will be elected.
BEPKfcSKXTATITO, THIKD DISTRICT. The Re;
CS publicans of the Third District have nominated
Captain A. Larxelerefor Representative. Capt.
Lanelere is an energetic, working man, who has
had mnch Legislative experience. Daring the
past Bummer, he was a candidate for the State
Senate; bnt vrhta he discoered that the Troy
Post-office not only meant to sell him., but to
make a tool of him besides, he concluded that be
. was not qualified for either purpose, and stepped
aside. He could tell some interesting things, if
he would bnt consent to canvass the County.

The Ufceral CaaYeBtlra.
The "Liberal" ad Democratic County Con
vention, which met here, last Saturday, repre
sented all parts of the Coanty. The "Liberal"
part of it was scarcely visible to the naked eye.
It reminded ne of a regular old Democratic Con
vention twelve years ago. Old patriarchs, who
bad not. been seen In a Convention since the flaj a
of Secession, were there in all their glory. They
raked up on colored man somewhere, and
brought bim in as a delegate. Tbe old liners
would cock their head side-wise at him, and
grin; and occasionally they would pluck some
body, and call attention to the "colored delegate,"
inn manner to siguify that it was pretty tough,
bnt perhaps they could ring in a few soft-shells
by that means.
Then, their ticket It is composed of the very
hardest quality of Democrats, from top to bot
tom. And it is as it should be. Tbe Greeley
party in Douiphan Coanty is composed of Demo
crats. There are not enough Republicans in it to
entitle them to a representation on the ticket.
Mr. Leonard, of Highland, their nominee for
8tate Senator, they pretend to claim, is Liberal
Republican. The fact is, be is, and has ben, a
regular Democrat. They also speak ijf a very
gratified manner of his wealth. Aa wM have the
story, he went into the army as a Qnarvjrmaster,
and poor; he came out with $90,000 in Govern
ment bonds. So much for his wealth.
For District Clerk, they showed no desire to
buck "against fate, bnt left tbe track clear for
For Coanty Attorney, CoL D. M. Johnston, of
Troy, is tbe nominee. He came to Doniphan
County before tbe flood, and daring daya when
b" Tsemnsimtln party lay1 dormant in the County,
he would kick himself on tbe shlus, pnll his bair,
and awcar at himself, to make sure that he was
alive, and still a Democrat. It is nip and tack
between bim and tbe Post-office candidate'for the
same office, which is the best Democrat. But the
Colonel did not have a fair chance. The offer
was not made him, that if he would turn Repub
lican be could have the office.
For Probate Judge, they nomina'td Robert
Wilkinson, an Old Liue Democrat, ofjjurr-Oak
Township. Mr. Wilkinson is a good nit, and is
popnlar in his Township. He is at prsseTown
shlp Trustee of BurrO.ik.
For County Superintendent, they nominated
Charles Kearney, of Bellemont, a hard-shell Dem
ocrat. He wants the office about as much as a
frog wants two tails.
For Representative of the First District, they
nominated J. F. Manck, of.White Clond, an old
citizen, an honest, straight-forward man, bnt so
intensely Democratic that a file wonldu't touch
him. We do not believe that Mr. Mauck wanted
tbe nomination, nor that he has a taste for tbe
position to which hn baa been nominated.
In the Second District, Barney ODriscoll, of
Doniphan, is tbe nominee for Representative. He
spent all the past Summer in his corn-field, prac
ticing on hnrrahing for Greeley. He hasn't got
the hang of it yst, but occasionally finds himself
damning Horace Greeley.
In tbe Third District, their candidate for Rep
resentative is Uncle Ned Searcy, so devout a Dem
ocrat, that he confidently looks for the second
coming of Gen. Jackson.
Acknowledges His Infamy. Martin B. Bow
ers coolly admits that he deceived bis friends,
and intended to deceive them, because ho had
heard that they were scheming to nominate Long,
of Wolf Ri i r r, for Reprcseu tati ve, instead of hi m
self; acd be did it to save himself. Ho brings
forward a falsehood to justify treachery. No
snch scheme n e cr broached by the men in
Whites Cloud who confided in Sir. Bowers. In
fact, it was only npon the strongest solicitation
that Mr. Long consented to be a candidate, after
the sale and delii cry of Bowers became public
If they had desired such a thing, we will point
Wr. Rowers to th f-t hut'l"" - .. .1
it as well after his treachery as before, by re
maining with his side of the .Convention. After
Bowers sold out, and after two fraudulent Dele
gates were thrnst iu from Wolf River, there
was still a majority of one against the party
that bought Bowers, in tbe Townships of Iowa
aud Wolf River.
A man who is so eager for the little office of
Representative, that he will sell his friends to ob
tain it, has no common object in view. He ex
pects an opportunity to sell himself to advantage
in the Legislature, and that is the game he is
playing for. Avoid him as yon wonlda pestilence!
About Bribkby. Judge Price, in his Conven
tion, last week, assertee, with apparent great in
dignation, that no person had ever yet charged
him with taking a bribe. As no sneb intimation
had been made, this denial was nncalled for, and
even out of place. We shall not make snch a
charge against him ; bnt since he has opened np
tbe subject, we w ill mention a few facts.
The only man whom we eer heard charge
bribery npon Judge Price, was his present chief
groom at White Clond, John It. utt. During
the Judge's three years on tbe bench, Utt assert
ed to us personally, at least fifty times, that
Price was the drunken tool of a few certain men,
who carried him in their breeches pockets; that
he would decide a case any day in favor of the
man who paid him most for it; and that if he
(Utt) had a ease in Price's Conrt, in which cer
tain men were interested against him, be would
pay no more attention to it than just sufficient
to entitle him to appeal it to tbe Supreme Court,
for he wonld expect no justice. As a specific
charge, he declared, time and again, that Judge
Price had been bribed in his decision of the Bar
nett corn ease. -F
Here yon have a distinct statement, which we
are ready to swear to. Now go for your man,
and establish your purity!
Revexbkb It. Weaaid that Martin B. Bowers
did not remove to Doniphan County to stay, and
intends to return to his home in Brown Connty
in tbe Spring. We meant what we said, and we
said it npon tbe very, beat authority. He intends
eo irmuv Ing- Iu Uui SiBJfc.? JUs assertion that be
has rented the farm ton eonple'of colored men,
is simply subterfuge, Jle always has several
tenants on bis farm, bnt go to tbe man whore
sides in tbe main dwelling on tbe farm, and he
will tell yon he bas to leave in the Spring; and
yon cannot find any other man who has the priv
ilege of going into it. The men who work tbe
farm, will go into tbe tenant bouse, andjHr.Bow
era will go into the farm residence, jjien his
school house contract la completed, be wjll have
nothing to do for the balance of tbe Winter, and
wants tbe people of tbe Fiast District to give
bim a position in which be can make a little spec
ulation. t"r At a Bowers meeting drammed np in White
Clond, the other night, Martin appealed to the
colored people whether be was not loyal daring
the war. Well, who ever said be was not f Of
course, be was loyal. Daring those long, dark
years, while other hearts quailed, he made sor
ghum for tbe poor soldiers, and sold it in tbe
Atchison market. He would occasionally bring
back a load of darkies, thinking they wonld be
so grateful because he was their friend, that they
wonld work for him for nothing. Tbe champion
tf free sorghum could never sympathize with tbe
rebellions devotees of sugar-cane,
17 Mart. Bowers takea exceptions to onr call
ing him a carpet-bagger. To tell the troth, we
wonld not have thought of it, bad not tbe idea
been suggested to us, not over three weeks ago,
bytfae very men who are now upholding his
course the men who nsed to smear him all over
with fool gobs of nastinesa, and whom he nsed to
smear with ditto. Bat then, yon see, tbe bell
wether of that sweet flock wanted to be Bepre
raesatative himself, anddlV3ot'now it would
bn nacseaary, in the eonraa. "events, to bay np
Bowers, norths be conld beboaghtsodogchsap.
A great many persons In tbe Connty do not
nnderataM what the outrage or proceeding waa
npon which tbe Republican Coanty Convention
split. We therefore make a statement. We
shall speak of the "Price" and "Drew-dag" par
ties, merely to distinguish tbe two sides, aa they
were, the opposing candidates.
The call of the Central Committee pecinew
that thejwlla at primary efceltona were to be
kepTopsa f rani 2 until 6 o'clock, p. m. A small
variation of time wm of not in ranch consequence
as at a reenter selection, bat the design was to
approximate that time. The country members
generally objected, contending that 5 o'clock waa
as late as country people would want to stay and
keep open polls.- It waa unanimously conceded,
in tbe Central Committee meeting, that if the
members of any of the Townships wished to es
tablish a shorter time, they could do so, bat that
tbe time should lie uniform in the call.
In Burr-Oak Township, tbe polls were closed
at S o'clock. Tbe Price men carried tbe day, and
no fuss was made. We have been told, (bow
correctly we do not know,) that in Highland, the
polls were opened long before the specified time.
Tbe Price men won, and it was all right. But at
Severance, in Wolf Biver Township, waa where
tbe hurt came. A majority of the Judges of elec
tion were Price men. They opened at 2 o'clock,
according to the Watch of a schoolmaster, and
kept open, according to that time, fonr hours, or
until 6 o'clock. Jndge Price happened to come
along, and it was not G by hi lime. He drum
med np a sqnai of men, to run Ir a show of t tit ing,
and then raised n uinss because the polls- were
closed. The Dreiining pi.rty succeeded, bnt a
contest waa brought on two of tho delegates, np
on tbe claim thar the'rrjected votes, would lint e
elected them. Tlirne voters were section bauds
on the railroad, and a delegate iu the Convention
stated distinctly tbst tbey were residents of Wa
tbena, and not only that, but that they were,
and always had been, Democrats. On the other
hand, ten Democrats voted the Price ticket at
Severance. There was bat oae man refused a
vote at the polls, and be stood around for ten
minutes before the polls were closed, never offer
ing to vote until tbey were closed, although due
notice had been given that tbey were about to
close be evidently being sent there for the pnr
pose of making difficulty.
When the Contention met, a clamor wns made
to exclude two of tho regularly elected Delegates
from Wolf Riturnn tbe temporary organization.
A regular species of rowdyism was carried on. by
which delegatea were prereuted from making
motions or speaking. We, as Chairman, attempt
ed to get at a fair vote; but we found not only
that the contestants from Wolf River were both
voting, but that many others were voting, who
were not delegates. Alternates were there tak
ing part, when their principals were in tbe Con
vention. There were thirty-nine persons enti
tled to vote as delegates; yet, on one rising vote,
we counted fifty in the aggregate. Jndge Price,
a candidate, was there, bnmming his own case,
as an alternate.
On tbe vote for temporary chairman, one man,
not seeing the importance of the office, voted for
the Price candidate, while being himself a Dren
ning man. This decided the election, and the
Committees were fixed. Prof. Gage, of Highland,
a candidate before tbe Convention, was a dele
gate, and in tbe Convention, yet bis alternate,
B. 8. Campbell, was appointed first upon tbe
Committee on Credentials, and by virtue thereof,
Chairman of the Committee. Price's statements
were received as the true version of the Wolf
River matter, supported by affidavits taken by a
tool of his, in a clandestine manner, in the ab
sence of the opposite interested party. This evi
dence the Committee accepted, against the judges
of election, and many of the best men of Wolf
A dslegate from White Cloud, a trno man, met
some old friends, who took bim in a bnggy, for a
short ride. Tbey bad their orders, ami kept go
ing, preventing him from returning to Troy. Tbe
Price men bad bought Mr. Bowers, another
White Cloud delegate, with less than thirty piec
es of silver. An alternate was present from
White Cloud, who stood first on tbe list, and had
been elected without opposition. Tbe White
Clond delegation asked that tbe Committee put
him on instead of tbe man who had been decoyed
away; bnt Bowers and those who had bought
him, insisted that Bowers' own alternate, whom
he bad brought along for tbe purpose, be put in
the place thus admitting both a delegate and
his alternate. The Committee finally decided to
leave the question open, and thus deprive White
Clond of a vote in the deeidiug stmggle. The
Dreuning men were willing to let them have the
advantage of their parlimentary tricks, the mis
takes of delegates, and their briberies; but when,
after all that, tbey conld not accomplish their
end, and undertook a regular system of disfran
chisement, bringing in a candidate to carry on a
game of blnff, and supporting their assertions by
their own affidavits, it waa more than reasonable
men could stand. They resolved to appeal to
the people, and let them say whether tbey wonld
sustain such conduct. That appeal is now before
Hard Up. When men beg of thtir enemies to
come and save them they must be hard np in tbe
extreme. On Saturday, when the Democratic
Delegates gathered in, it waa amusing as well as
humiliating to see a Price man having every dsl
egate by the ear, trying to fix np the Convention
for them. They had run their minority Conven
tion so well, that tbey thought they could ran
this one. A few of tbe Democratic leaders" were
with them, heartily co-operating in the scheme;
bnt the delegatea from other parts of the Coanty
couldn't see it, and determined, to nominate a
ticket. Tbe next Price move waa to have them
nominate a candidate for tbe Senate from a sec
tion where Price waa npopnlar, in order to catch
tbe votes that be conld not get nndsr any circum
stances; and by leaving the sections without a
candidate where his influences were strong, be
wonld stand a chance of working In considerable
Democratic Betprafthhr tailed also; and the
candidate waa taken from the very place where
he expected tbe pressure of local feeling to do the
most for bim. -

7" John H. Utt last week proposed to Demo
crats of White Clond, that if they would make
no nomination for Senator, but vote for Price, he
would insure them an equal nnmbea f votes of
Price men for C. W. Johnson for District Judge.
We mention this, to shew Judge Hubbard what
sort of bands bis interests are in, in Douiphan
County. It is pretty well settled that a Demo
cratic saloon ia alreadjj chartered to run against
the Democratic candidate for Representative in
the First District, and in favor of the consistent
Christian and temperaneeman, Martin B. Bowers.
17" In his eloquent appeal, tbe other night, at
White Cloud, Bowers said that be was in the
bands of the people, but that be relied upon Prov
idence. It is a notorious fact, that men never
put their case in the bands of Providence nntil
every other hope is exhausted. But it is a little
bit fnnny, when a man admits that ha deceived
his friends, and intended to deceive them that
is) played a falsehood upou them we say it is
tbe least mite funny, that be should depend upon
Providence to sustain him in it.

urday, that they would have those Highland folks

handy at shoving; bit if they shonld accomplish

their prayer-meetings before.

OfHorneea-swiBg around the circle," the St.
Louis Ikssaerwi very truly says :
"His trip in this direction was exensed by the
pleaofn longstanding engagement to deliver an
address at tbe Cincinnati Industrial Exhibition.
But aa in New Hampshire, where he pretended to
visit the paternal roof, which he never reached,
and in Maine, whither he ostensibly went to visit
the old companions of his yonth, whom he con
veniently tailed to Snd, so in Cincinnati he read
ily forgot the object of his mission. Of the twenty-four
hours of his stay in the city he devoted
barely two to the Exposition, while the rest was
spent in delivering rambling political speeches
aud holding electioneering levees. Tbe speeches
which he has delivered during bis trip have been
as ill-advised aa tbe errand itself. He haspresent
ed the pitiable spectacle which it is fair to pre
sume wonld characterize his administration were
he through any possibility to lie elected that of
a hair-brained, visionary snd foolish talker, held
in partial restraint and governed as far as possi
ble by the chosen representatives of the party
with which, nntil his ambition captured his judg
ment, his whole life has been at enmity. In re
sponse to their bid he hss talked rebel sympathy
to old rebels, and the glories of an undivided
country to Union soldiers. State rights to seces
sionists, and radical abolitionism to enfranchised
colored people. That he no w and then blunder
ingly forgot bis cne is not to be wondered at, nor
that forgetting it. he made the stupid errors
which cbasrined his guardians and set the whole
hcountry in a broad grin,
f "To say that the crowds which have gathered
vt nis approacn'anu wnicn nave patiently listen
eslto hta ramhjing pletitndes are an indication
of sympathy with him and the movement which
he representais simply absurd. It might with
equal iproprjety be affirmed that the carious
throngs which haunted the quarters of the Spot
ted Tail band during their recent visit to this
city, wi composed of sympathizers with the
Sioux aw abettors of their hair-raising expedi
tions. It is a modest estimate that of every five
people who listen to .one of Mr. Greeley's har
angues, three will vote for Grant, and the other
two will lit e ta repent their squandered ballots.
Accident. A young man by the name of Wil
son, residing at Donipban, while ont hunting in a
boat on tbe Missouri river one dsy Isst week,
met with a sirious accident which resulted in tbe
loss of his right arm at the shoulder joint. His
gnn was resting on tbe bottom of tbe boat, and
the muzzel in close proximity to his arm, whsn,
by some means, it exploded, discharging its con
tents into his arm above the elbow, making a
frightfwwouud and carrying away most of the
mnsebj. Mortification soon set in, when it be
came ntcessary to amputate. Dr. Geo. L. Lewis,
of this-city, with Dr. Crook, of Doniphan, perform
ed the operation. The young man at last ac
counts was doing well.
