the accounts of Osbun Shannon, the

aro varioua theories as to where the
money went, gome claiming that
Woodruf! has been speculating heavily
of lalo and others suggesting that tho
money was lost batting on Cleveland.
Woodruff himself puts the entire
blanij on Postmaster Shannon nud
claims that the shortages dato baek for
three years. Knowing both Shannon
and Woodruff lib wo do it is hard for
us to believe either of them guilty.
The fict of the deficiency, however,

IHE SBIMAEY GYGTESI,
convtiiuoiKs npproacnes mo Usual uis-
cuhfiou of tho best method of nomina
ting candidates is resumed, the diffi
culty evidently being to finding a way
to steer cie ir of the Scylla of the old
delegate system without bung engulf
ed in tbe Charybdis of tho Cnwford
cnuuiy plan. So far a- we have been
able to see by reading the arguments
in a number of exchanges none of them
lias jt been able to suggest a way out
of this difficulty, all contenting them
selves 'Aith an effect to determine
which is ILe lesser of tbe two eviid.
Tho REGISTER believes thaE Alien
county hHS evolved, on the whole, tbe
most satisfactory primary system that
has yet been practiced, and an expla
nation of lis operations maybe wel
comed by these who nre still In tho
The eoheuio is a combination of the
old delegate aud Crawford co-inry sys
tems. Each town&hip is given Hi
proper number or delegates, based on
the last Republican vote, aud these
dolegatfrs arc selected in any vray the
primary may eoe fit. At the swao time
the delegates aro chosen, a primary
election is hold at which each Repub
lican Plector otes his choice among
the crfiididites for each of tho offices to
bo filled, printed tickets bearing the
names of all Uicandidatcs being used.
The returns from this election, as com
plied by tho judges and clerks, are
placed in the hands of the delegates to
be carried along with their credentials
to the c;untv convention. If any
candidate receives a majority o!ali the
votes cast iu auy precinct, tho entire
delegation from that precinct is consid
ered instructed for him. u tnero are
three or more candidates and no one of
them receives a majority of the votes
cast, then the delegation divides its
vole in the convention pro rata in ac
cordance with tho votes cast for each
candidate. Cf course it will frequent
ly happen, when there are three pr
more candidates for one office, that no
one of them will received a majority of
the vote; cast in the convention so
long as tho delegates are govcrucd by
the ote cast at tho primaries, rn
such a ciie the only thing to do is for
the delegates, by reeolutiou, to absolve
themselves from their instructions
and then voto their personal choice.
The advantage- of this over the old
delegate system may be noted as fol-
1. Tbe primaries cauuot bo gcucked
or manipulated by 3 fo,w scheming
2. Tho delegatts are chosen before it
is known whom they will be expected
toote for so that oare is taken to
select meu of standing and character
who can be trusted to abide by their
3. The delegates are Instructed upen
each of tho candidates, and not (as
was nearly alway tho cae under the
old nystem) elected solely In the Inter
ests ofone man for whose suceees'tticy
were willing to .sacrifice every other
4. The delegates being Instructed
thus upon every office, there Is llttlo
opportunity for trades or combinations.
As above stated It will sometimes be
necessary, when there are three or
inoro candidates and no one has a
majority oi tho delegates Instructed
for him, for the delegates to absolve
themselves and voto their personal
preference Rut this seldom happens
more than once or twice iu the same
convention, so that the field for Jobs hi
greatly restrlcted.and It will nearly al
waysbs foundthat tho candidate is seleo
ted on his own merits and notby virtue
of atrade.Tbls is the more apt to be the
case for the reason that no one delega
tion is elected solely In tho Interest of
one candidate, determined to pull him
through at any cost.
In comparing this plan on the other
hand, with tho Crawford county sys.
tern, tho following advantages are ap
parent: 1. It insures each'preclnot its prop
er representation. Under the Crawford
county system a populous precinct,
where tho Interest is groat, may get
out a very largo vote and thus wield
raoro than its proportionate influence.
Under this syBtem if a precinct only
casts a dozen votes at tho primary it
has juntas much weight in the con
vention as if it had cast its full Repub
lican strength, and ha3 just as much
weight proportionately as the most
populous proeinot in tho county.
2. All tho proceedings are given
wider publicity sr that there hi not the
suspicion attached to tho announce
ment of tho result that must always
follow when it Is a star-chamber mat
ter, known only to the Judges at the
various precincts and to the central
3. It provides for a coun
ty convention, which is almost a
necessity if a platform of principles is
to be adopted, and which is of great
advantago iu giving a campaign a
good "send-off," bringing together as
it.docs a hundred or more Republicans
from all parts of the county, each one
of whom w ill feel in a large degree re
sponsible for the success of a ticket
winch he helped nomiuato.
These are some of the advantages
our system has over the two systems
it Is intended to Bupplanr, and wo can
not see that any tiling liko correspond
ing disadvantages can bo pointed out.
This wo know: That since it was adop
ien county lias over broken up in a
row, no charges have been made of
jobi, combinations or sell-outs, and uo
unworthy candidate had been noinl-
nated.Aud furthermore, brethren, and
above all, whereas, when this plan was
first adopted one half of the county of
fices wore filled with Democrats, now
they aro all filled with Republicans.
