During the last week a convention
principally of railroad-attorneys, mem
bers of syndicates, bankers and per
sons who'aie under corporate influence
met in Indianapolis, and nominated
the aged Senator Palmer of Illinois,
for President and the aged General
Buckner of Kentucky, for Vice-Presi

The effort of corporations to dictate
who shall be President of the United
States, by allowing, or rather by di
recting their chief officers to enter the
campaign, intimidate employees,
swear them, enlist them, and coerce
them into voting for and supporting
the candidate of the choice of the mil
lionaires who own and operate those
corporations, is the most dangerous
step ever yet taken by any such crea
tures. The boldness of this step is
alarming the people, from whom these
corporations derive their rights and
existence, and the masses stand ap
palled at it. They are sowing the
wind and they may expect to reap the

he sees the quality.

I A "Sound Money Democrat,"through
I the columns of the News of the 4th
inst., informs the Spectator that it
could have found a full report of Capt.
JBunigardner's speech when he took
the chair to preside over the sound
money convention at Richmond on the
127 th ult., and refers us to the Rich
mond Times of the 28th for it. It is
like burying a speech to print it in the
■mes so far as the people in Augusta
d adjoining counties are concerned,
and therefore we ought to be pardon
ed for not seeing it when in a paper
nobody around here reads. j
Then the same writer states :
"If that Editor (meaning the Spec-1
tator) had made any investigation or ,
enquiry, he would have learned that j
no railroad gave transportation to any
delegate from Staunton or Augusta |
county to that convention."
The Spectator never made any such
charge. Here is what it did say :
It is said that the delegates to the
sound money—honest dollar—JeHer
-1 sonian—true Democratic convention at
Richmond did not pay any car fare. It
is said by some that the railroad com
pany furnished transportation to all
who would go. "Lord how the world
is given to lying." Such men as these
certainly would not let a railroad put
a collar round their necks before tney
Srted from home,
'he same writer says: j
In view of editorial statements con
ned in the last issue of the Specta
the Editor of that paper should
specify the delegates to the Richmond
convention, or the gentlemen who at
tended it, whose hotel bills at the Jett
erson or at any other hotel were paid •
for them, or which of them receiver!
The joke in the Spectator's article
does not seem to have dawned on the
writer. As he seems serious, we will
say that the evidence is all with the
delegates, but we will at once file a bill
of discovery. In the mean time as
there were only a few delegates why
not let them come out over their own
signatures and say that they and each
of them paid their railroad fare„,an<i
their hotel bills, and did not receive

Bryan Touches Up Mr. Ingalis.
In his Kenton speech Mr. Bryan
attacked President M. E. Ingalls, of
the "Big Four," C. & 0., though not
by name. Mr. Ingalls is the author of
a letter to railroad employes, which
points out how free silver would ad
versely affect their interests. Here is
precisely what Mr. Bryan said in re
"I am willing that each man shall
have whatever influence his neighbors
are willing to give to him, but I object
to any man using his official position
to coerce other people who have opin
ions of their own. I have had my at
tention called in this State to an inter
| view given out by the president of a
j great railroad to the employes of that
road, furnished when they received
"Iwant to say to you that if the ob j
ject of the managers of the road was
merely to instruct the employes on the

was to show the employe that if he

used without regard to conscience or

make an unsafe President. But their
favorite candidate for President is Jur.
Cleveland, who, as President, without
the slightest reason or faintest warn
ing, issued a declaration of war against
Great Britain, and whose second

dition at Indianapolis that his friends,
