"Leaves have their time to fall,"
and so do judicial candidates in a
Republican convention, leaving
naught but sour and decayed fruit,
and even that will fall in November.
Judge O. W. Powers, the prince
of parliamentarians, presided at
the Ogden convention with supreme
satisfaction to all. His address to
the convention was a gem of sub
lime oratory, worthy of being pre
served as an example of American
eloquence equal to the'most brilliant
men of the age.
Col. Geo. P. Norris, a member
of the bar of Philadelphia, Pa., and
Washington, D. C, was yesterday
admitted to practice in the Supreme
Court in this Territory on motion
of Judge C. W. Bennett. Col.
Norris, after several months in
spection has decided to locate in
the city o Zion, but it is not his
intention to engage in the practice
of his profession at the present
time, as he is engaged in 'mining
and other operations.
It k said that Col. Norris is re
presenting Eastern and California
capitalists in this section.
The colored Republicans of this
city, after digesting the remarks of
the Broad Ax, have concluded we
were about right, and they are de
manding representation on the Re
publican ticket. There are several
chances yet, as the city ticket is yet
to be formed. Will the party of
promises redeem themselves? We
predict not; but we will wait and
see. We guess it will be now, as it
always has been: the negro must
stand aside, all they are fit for
is to vote and work for the G. O. P.
How do you like it?
The Broad Ax is growing in
favor every day. All classes are
giving us encouragement and sup
port. We now feel safe in saying
there is between seventy-five and
one hundred colored voters in this
city who will stand by us, and
assert their manhood by voting the
Democratic ticket this fall. A few
more resolutions of censure, and
threats of "running us out" and of
"lynching" us, and we will double
the number by November 5. -The
colored people are open to reason,
and that is the reason they like the
Broad Ax, which deals in reason
and not rant.
Col. Bruce Johnson in the Repub
lican Judicial Convention, in ap
proving of the nomination of Grant
H. Smith on behalf of the colored
voters, took occasion to say: "We
asked for representation on the Re
publican ticket, but was refused."
From his remark and temper, we
would judge the sting of defeat has
not yet healed. We would kindly
suggest to the brother, that he must
get used to it, as it will always be
thus in the G O. P. Even Grant
H. Smith was downed.
We call the attention of our
many readers to the immense stock
of staple and fancy groceries, mel
lons, fruits, and vegetables, which
they can obtain at the C. B. Burst
