R. MEANS DAVIS, Edftor,
WEDNESDAY MORINGh, AUGUST t6, 18A.
We wish to make two s'uggest'ions
First. That the Executive Com.
nittoo of the Taxpayers' Convention
Am'nediatoly issue a call for a weet
ing of the State Union, at 01110 fu
tura time. It inatters not how late
be the day appointed. The idea I
to let it be known exactly when the
Stato Union will met, so that the
work of .oganizing County Unions
ry be expOeditexl.
Scon.d. That the 1iecutivo Com
mitteo bf the Pon'vention, or who
ever has the power, should imne
diately designato some placo and day
for Conservativo Congressional Nom1.

This assertion, as far as wO ar
concerned is false. We bitterly de
nouncod Moso., when these halho
journals were muto. As long as wo.

for the nomination, we attacked hini
with all our wight. Bit when the
ontire Northern press, ind home
radiet8ls took up the tin,1 v' - .y
against hin, we considered him "a
dead cock in the pit," ind therefore
r6nsidered it neodloss.
We saw how'en !, that ualNg Moses
as a scapo goat., O.na radicals by cry
ing reform, wore endeavoring secret
ly to slip in a cantdidate, no more lit
for the gubernatorial iominatiun
than Mioses. In order to provent this
if possible, we have brought what
power we possess, to bear directly on
