THE LEAVENWORTH WEEKLY TIMES.
ILEAVENTTOKTH, KANSAS, THURSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 3, 1870.
THURSDAY, NOVE5IBER3, 1870.
THE HEPIBUCAS COUJfTr TIl'MET.
Our victory in the State this year will be
very unsatisfactory unless Leavenwortk
County is placed wholly and foreTer in the
roll of true Republican Counties, in sympa
thy with the rest of the State and with the
National Administration. The Democrats,
in their resolutions adopted on Monday,
pledge themselves to vote for a Leavenworth
man for United States Senator. Do they
suppose that our people can be deceived by
any such shallow artifice? Should the De
mocracy carry this county, Leavenworth
will himply be fehut out of all voice and con
trol over the election of a Senator. The
successful candidate will, of course, be a Re
publican, probablv nominated by a Re
publican caucus a caucus in which
Democrats can hare no voice for
the reason that they will be excluded from
its meetings and deliberations. It is not in
the jwwer of the Democrats of this county,
MipMting their intentions to be the best, to
aid Leavenworth in any way whatever in the
hoicc of a United States Senator. And the
Kimc rule prevail- in regard to general legis
lation and to all business coming before the
I.'gi'-lature. The officers of both
brandies of the Legislature will
be. Republican;, and the chairmen of com
mittees and a majority of every committee
nil! lc Republican. Ixsivcnworth is, there
fore, (-imply throwing away her votes and her
influence when the gives her suffrages to
Democrats for members of the State Senate
an-1 House. This fact is so plain that we do
not !elicve it jHrsiblc for any intelligent
oter to be deceived. In saying this we
urikc no charges whatever against the Dem
ucralic candidates. Ifthoy were men equal
in ability and personal character to the Re
publican candidates, it would fctill he true
l liH a vole for them would be a vote thrown
a nay a vote which cannot aid the candi
dates themselves and which i a jtositivc in
juiy to Leavenworth County. Let these
fects I.1 remembered until election day is
over, and let no secious statements made by
our opponents remove them from the mind
of any Republican voter.
The triumph inaugurated by the Republi
can (convention in September will be com
pleted by a pure and honest Legislature
which will ehvt an able and honorable Re
publican to the United States Senate. In
StMitemlicr we nominitcd D. P. Lowei
for Congros, and we shall elect him
nett week by an unprecedented niajor
iiy. We must have, to work with
Judge luwc in Washington, a Senatojyupf
li'r." elnracter and attainments a man un-.
stained, free from corruption and dishonor.
The two can then co-oeratc and fitly repre-
out Kans-as in Washington. The day of
our redemption drawcth nigh, and this is
not the time for 1e.iveuwortli County to
stand aloof, to Ite idle, to vote for Democrats,
ii even for doubtful men.
iir other i-mdidatts on the County Ticket
an- nut lem imort:iiit. The nominations
aie as good as any ever presented to our peo
ple. Every clement of the Kirty is repre
sented, ami reprcscnte-d by a true and faith
fill m in. Some signs of disaffection showed
themselves during the session of the Conven
tion, but they all disappeared as soon as the
whole ticket was examined and the questions
before the people were thoughtfully consid
ip1. Tin re are a thousand reasons why
in w hob-ticket should lie elected, lnit not a
single cue why a Republican should throw
away his vote or su-rificc his principles by
voting for Democrat-. We aie pleased to
see that e'lir Republican cotenijioraries cor
dially endore the whole ticket. The Evening
"It is generally conceded on ail hands that
the Republican County Convention last Sat
urday, placid in the field one of the strong
est tickets ever nominated in Leavenworth
( utility. I ii addition to a ticket composed of
lie progressive gentlemen, men of sterling
worth in the e-ounty, the nominating con
vention was a harmonious one throughout.
f course every (political Convention is cer
tain to leave disapiointed candidates, and in
some instances the pangs of defeat can only
lie ooihed by bolts. The Convention, Satur
day, furnished a rarecxample of fairness and
moderation in all its workings, and the can
didates who were rejected are going to work
with a cheerful vigor to increase the Repub
lies'ii majorities. We hear nothing of bolts
and iudccndcnt candidates and few deser
tions to the Democracy. If there are any of
the latter, they have iittle or no influence,
and am carry with them nothing but their
on n votes and t readier)-. The Republican
ticket for the present campaign is a remark
ably strong one. While none but good men
are placed upon it, the oilions are distri
buted to localities, in a fair manner, and the
feelings of nationality and color arc at the
sime time pnperly regarded.. It is a com
pliment to the sense and unity of the Repub
licans of lxavcnonh County to place such
a ticket in the field and the compliment will
I- resolved into a triumph for the principles
of the party on the Srli of November."
The Kre'ning Otll is not less emphatic:
"The Convention acted on Saturday, and
now comes the duty of the jieople. It that
Is--tell done, and all will be well for the
county and State. No ticket was ever
nude"; or nominated, when and where parties
were or are strong, which pleased every
bwly. Ours is no exception. Still, as a
w hole, it is a good one, and should be vigor
ously pushed and earnestly supported.
""( me peculiarity of the Convention was
that it nominated a colored man. This is
simply carrying out the principle affirmed
bv the Republican p'artv. Some object. Re-
verso the ca.se. and suppose some lHirtion of
the white race, who had been down-trodden,
were siiddenlv set free. Would not all of us
i beer the ambition and applaud the courage
w hich should stimulate them to graspat po
litical distinction and seek social position?
" Let Republicans go to work, and work
in earnest. With strong men like Echcl
lvrrv, with able and honest men like Gris
wold to lead, let none of as falter. On to
the work then, Republicans,, and let ours be
THE DEMOCRATIC TICKET.
The Democrats met in Convention yester
day and nominated a County ticket which
we suppose will be considered a strong one.
A few names on it are undoubtedly popular,
although not more so than many of the Re
publican candidates. But we have no hesi
tation in saying that our opponents have
acted more wisely than usual. When they
last met in Convention they did not dare to
make any nominations whatever. "The
great and glorious" Democracy consented to
self-dissolution, and dismemberment. .Such
acts arc fatal admissions of weakness. The
election which then followed was carried
against the Republican nominees because
Democratic registers and judges dkfran
diised the colored voters in two Wards.
Rut the Democracy came ont in its own
name yesterday and made up a ticket with
only one mame on it from our party. We
congratulate them on their courage. Col
ored men are now voters in every Ward and
in every Township; they will vote; and there
arc a great many of them. The white popu
lation oCthc County and City has greatly in
creased since November 1668, and even then
we had three hundred majority for Grant.
No fact is better known than this,
that most of the new settlers in Kansas
are Republicans. The vote will be larger
than ever before, for there seems to be no
apathy, and the Republican majority cannot
be lew than seven hundred we should not
be surprised to see it exceed a thousand.
There need be bo fear of the Democrats, and
the Democrats themselves appreciate this
fact as thoroughly as we do.
Our candidates for the Legislature and the
Senate must be supported at all hazards.
The Democrats in some instances are refus
ing to make any nominations whatever. But
there is only one course for Republicans to
pursue. Stand by the ticket, and by every
candidate on the ticket. To trade or to
dicker is only to help the enemy. The only
J way to carry out Republican principles is by
voting for Republican candidates.
MWE AS MABVET.
The Weekly Tikes issued to-day is the
last number of that edition of our paper
which will be seen by our readers before the
election, and we wish to say a last word to
them in regard to Harvey, Lowe, and the
whole Stale ticket.
The best informed persons believe that
the whole vote of the State next Tuesday
will not be less than seventy thousand. The
Republican vote, on that supposition, will
reach at least 45,000, while it is possible that
the Democratic vote will number 25,000.
That would give us a Republican majority
of 20,000. The labor of every Republican
must be to increase this majority. In some
Counties there will be a good deal of split
ting on local tickets, but the State and Con
gressional tickets must not be permitted to
suffer. Our nominations on these tickets are
of the best kind, and every vote must be
secured. We appeal to every Republican to
make this his special duty on election day.
Let the triumph be a grand and glorious
one, and the majority as large as that of
Massachusetts or Iowa.
We fierceive that Sidney Clarke has done
as we predicted in the Franklin and An
derson Senatorial District, by bringing out
a bolting candidate for the purpose of de
feating Judge Scars. We sincerely hope
that it will not succeed. Aside from being
a grievous wrong toward the party, the
State would be a great loser in not having
the services in the Legislature of so able
and experienced a Seneator as he. It is
not a matter affecting merely that District,
but the State at large, as well as thesparty
to which he belongs. The earnest Repub
licans of this County are much interested
in his success.
. It appears that the Fourteenth Amend
ment is to be rigorously enforced in Tennes
see. A few days since, Chief Justice Nich
olson, Justices Sneed and Nelson, and At
torney General Heiskell, were summoned by
United States District Attorney Camp to ap
pear before the Judges of the United States
District Court, at Knoxville, on the second
Monday in January next, to show by what
warrant they can daim to exercise theduties,
power and privileges of Judges of the Su
preme Court of the State. The informations
recite that the said parties, prior to 1861,
held offices of honor and trust under the
Constitution of the United States, and in
assuming them, took oaths to support the
same, and that afterward they eadi engaged
in insurrection and rebellion, and gave aid
and comfort to the enemv.
Hkke Is a Chicago paragraph, from the
Time of that dty: " It is a somewhat curi
ous fact that, while champagne wine has ad
vanced largely in price, there is no diminu
tion in the supply. This fact may puzzle
political economists, but it will please the
champagne drinkers. For their further edifi
cation, it may be added that if the European
war continues for the next ten years, there
will still be no diminution in the supply of
champagne. Chicago has facilities for sup
plying a French wine that are inexhaustible
Not unless the drog-sho give out, need
there be any apprehension that there will
not be any decrease in this creamy tipple."
A mono the many grotesque means of saving
the country now resorted to or proposed in
France, the formation of a certain new corps
of defence in the department of Gers is one
of the most remarkable. Its members are
all dressed in black, and are all under the
vow of strictest silence. All commands are
given by signs. At present the crops con
sists of fifty men, all picked shots, armed
with the Minie rifle. Their banner is a skull.
No one knows the name of their leader, who
has paid all the expenses of their equip
ment. The story comes from Lexington that on
the day before Gen. Lee died a large portrait
of him, which was hanging in the parlor of
his house, fell to the floor, breaking the
heavy frame surrounding it. A large pho
tograph of him hanging in the photograph
gallery, in the town fell about the same
time, and broke into pieces.- There was ap
parently no disturbing cause or force to pro
duce these accidents.
Calvin Chamberlain, a venerable citi
zen of Maineias original views on the labor
question. He recently dug seventy bushels
of potatoes, with his own hands, in eight
hours, one dav last week. He thinks a man 1
at sixty ought not to work more than eight
hours, or dig more than seventy bushels of
potatoes in a day.
The Batavia (N. Y.) TTmim says between
Monday morning and Thursday night of last
week, 15,000 barrels of apples were brought
into and shipped from that place. The
prindpal part of them were shipped to
Philadelphia, the balance to Boston and
New York, and the price ranges from SI ,30
to $1,50 per barrel.
The New York World says the election
law of Congress ought to be called "a law to
diminish Democratic majorities." If suc
cessfully enforced in New York City it will
doubtless diminish Democratic majorities
very perceptibly. Honest men of all parties
want to see this law rigidly executed. Only
the rogues will suffer.
Hon. W. C. Webb has been nominated
for the Legislature from the Fifty-third
District, Bourbon County. He represented
Fort Scott in the last House, and was a very
efficient member. Capt. S. A. Williams, a
well-known old dtizen, is the Democratic
Hox. J. W. Shaffer, Governor.of Utah,
whose death is reported by telegraph, was at
Fort Leavenworth in '61 on the staff of Gen.
Hunter. He afterwards served in New
Orleans oa the staff of Gen. Butler. He
was an able politician and an original sup
porter of Mr. Lincoln, in Illinois.
Of the members of Gen. Grant's staff, at
the time the latter was stationed at Cairo,
HI., in 1862, two only are now living Gen.
Hillyer and Major W. W. Leland, of Sara
toga, Those who have since died were
Gen's McPherson, Rawlins, Bowers, Lago
The Mobile (Ala.) Seguter says that in
August, September and October to the 22d
cf the following years, the deaths by yellow
fever were: 1839, 620; 1843, 274; 1847, 72!
1853, 868; 1854, 84; 1855, 35; 1858, 241;
1867, 65; 1870, (to October 22), 140.
The Methodise Episcopal Church will

Hen. Janus Blood Vindicates the Trata
of History and the Falsehood
Lawrence, Kas., Oct. 25, 1870.
Tolke Ulihr i' Ike LemvHirmlh Timet:
As a communication, dated Lawrence,
Kansas, Oct. 18, 1870, and published in
your paper of the 21st insL, criticizing atf
article of Senator S. C. Pomeroy 's, published
in the New York Iddgtt of Oct. 22, 1870,
contains a number of erroneous statements, I
condude that the author of the communica
tion referred to above was not one of the first
settlers of Kansas, and that he hxs been mis
informed in regard to some of the incidents
of the early settlement of Lawrence.
I therefore desire to make a few state
ments through your paier of facts that came
within my personal knowledge.
In July 1855, 1 came to Kansas. At St.
Louis, on my wav here, I learned that C.
Robinson and C. II. Branscomb had passed
through there a day or two before on their
war to Kansas City. On my arrival at Kan
sas City I learned that Gov. Robinson had
returned to the cast without going into the
Territorv, and that 5Ir. Branscomb had
gone to Ft. Riley, on horse back. I went
up the Missouri Kiver as ur as rt. Leaven-
wort, and returned to -Kansas City where I
met Mr. Branscomb, on his return from rt.

A few days after our return to Kansas City,
the first party of free State settlers, number
ing about thirty men (no women), landed
there. In this party I think were S. F.
Tappan, D. R- Anthony, Mr. Mallory, Dr.
S. C. Harrington, Hugh Cameron and
Dr. John Doy. we held a consultation
with regard to the point to be selected for the
aVst settlement, and I remember that Mr.
Branscomb and myself with Mr. Anthony
and one or two others, rode over to consult
with Mr. A. Guthrie about some land that
he controlled in the Wyandotte Reservation,
on the MhaoBri River, where the town of
Quindaro was afterwards laid out. But as
we were not willing to invent moner, or ad
vise others to in vest money in building up a
town on land to. which we had no assurance
of being able to obtain legal title, and as I
had received letters from the Commissioner
of Indian Anwirs and the Commissioner of
the General Land Osace at Washington, stat
ing that the Gofaaaauit would not allow
settlements to be made upon the Delaware
land. We therefore abandoned the idea
of selecting a point for a landing on the
the Missouri River in the Territory, (as the
Wyandotte and Delaware lands 'extended
along the Missouri River from the mouth of
the Kansas River to Fsrt Leavenworth,) and
condoded to go op the Kansas River across
the Shawnee reservation, and lay out a town
where the city of Lawrence now is. We
came with the parry and pitched the tents on
the hill, and in the exact spot where the
State University building m now being
erected. We founds at that time four or
five settlers near the bank of the river, upon
the ground selected for the town. A Mr.
Stearns had built a log cabin where it yet
stands on the east aide of Massachusetts street
near the bridge. Mr. Bramcomb went at
to Mr. Steams and made an agreement

A Settler's Association had been organ
ized and a code of laws adopted by the set
tlers for their government. I will not
attempt to correct all of the errors in the
Ledger article of the ''distinguished Sen
ator," and had not the article been repub
lished in the Senator's home organ (the
Atchison Champion and JVm) I do not think
I should have noticed it at all. Indeed. I
should have concluded that the object of the
"distinguished Senator," in writing the arti
cle lor the lMgr, was to distinguish him
self as a writer of fiction.
But I should like to correct one or two
more statements in the Ledger article. The
"distinguished Senator" represents that he
was at one time a prisoner in the hands of
the Border Ruffians upon the banks of the
Wakarusa, and, after nine days captivity,
was sentenced to be hanged; that afterwards
he was set free, Gen. Atchison telling him
that they the Border Ruffian leaders
could not take the responsibility before the
country, and in view of the Presidential
election then approaching, of hanging (ten.
l'omeroy, "as 1 was called, 1 being .President
oi ine committee oi vigilance ana com
mander of the Free State forces." Now, the
ft .a -. - w"
distinguished Senator never was commander
of the Free State forces, and never was a res
ident of Lawrence. On bis return from here,
in September, 1851, be opened an office in
Kansas City, where he resided until 1857,
occasionally visiting Ijwrence and other
places in the Territory. In the fall of 1855.
Sumuel Jones, a resident of Wcstport, who
claimed to be Sheriff of Douglas County,
called out a large posse to aid him in making
arrests, ami campeo wnn nis pne, ior a lew
days, upon the banks of the Wakarusa, a
short distance below Lawrence. About this
time, Mr. S. C. Pomeroy came up here
from Kansas City, and the next day, on
his way back to Kansas City, he was
arrested and taken into camp, where
he was kept over night, I think. On his
release the next day he made haste to go
East. As this was in 1855 and the Presi
dential election did not take place until the
fall of 1856, Gen. Atchison (if he had been
there,) would hardly have been terrified at
the effect the hanging of "Gen. Pomeroy"
would have upon the Presidential elections.
There was no military organization of the
Free State forces until after Jones called out
his potte. At that time the Free State men
met here and organized, making Governor
Robinson Commander-in-Chief, Gen. J. IL
Lane, second, and I think Gen. George W.
Dcitzler, third in command. A committee
of safety was also elected with Col. Robin
son, Chairman, and I think Dcitzler, Secre
tary. As Senator Pomeroy was not here and
not a resident of the Territory of course he
was not thought of for either position. But
I have taken more notice than I intended of
the "Distinguished Senator" on account of
his personal exploits, 1 will, therefore, dis
miss for the present, the "Distinguished
Senator's" Ledger article with the remark
that said article Is v-Udfidion, from beginning
to the end. I would like, however, to refer
to one or two more of the representations in
your correspondent's letter of the 18th inst.
His representation of the delivery of the
cannon by Senator Pomeroy to 'Jones, I
believe to be substantially correct, although
I was not present. The time of this occur
rence was the 21st of May, 1S56. A short
time before this Mr. Donaldson, United
States Marshal, for Kansas, Issued a procla
mation calling for a poae to aid him in
making arrests and executing the orders of
the United States Court, for the Territory of
Kansas. His proclamation was responded
to by a large number of men from Missouri
and otherslave States. They were organized
at Lecomrtton, then the Capital of
the Territory, and marched uihii
Lawrence under the command of Marshal
Donaldson and Sheriff Jones, accompanied by
David R. Atchison, then Vice President of
the United States. Their force was called
the Territorial Militia, but I think your cor
respondent is mistaken about its being com
posed in jiart of United States troops. At
this time Mr. Pomeroy came up from Kan
sas City, and as (Jo v. Robinson, Geo. Lane,
and other member of the committee were
away, a few of the citizens of Lawrence
formed a new committee, and Gen. I'mneny,
who happened to be present, was made
chairman of the committee. I believe the
only act that he ever performed in that ca-
Jiadty was the delivery of the howitzer to
Tones, as your correspondent represents, as
he left here immediately, and I do not think
that he was seen in Lawrence, or in Kansas,
again that year. Your corrcsjxjudent is also
mistaken about Jones' believing Mr. Pom

From the New York Sun, OU. 27.
The Washington and New York express,
which leaves West Philadelphia for New
York at 15:35 a. m., always stops at Mantiu
Junction to change engines. The locomo
tive in readiness at this point brings the train
on to New Brunswick, where it is replaced
by a third engine, which takes the train to
Jersey City. At 2 o'clock yesterday morn
ing engine No. 81 was ready at 5Iantui Junc
tion for the express. This locomotive is
said to be the oldest usscngcr engine on the
road, and, though somewhat worn with age,
excels many of its juniors iii'both power and
speech While waiting for the express, the
engineer and the firemen, having half an
hour to spare, left their engine standing on
the main track and went to breakfast. At
this dark and early hour the only
persons at the Junction were employees of
the company. The veteran Iocomotie was
standing alone. Its bright head-light threw
a gleam up the track revealing distinctly far
into the darkness beyond the continuous
line of steel over which its ponderous wheels
had so often rolled. From its a.li-i.in
dronted the heated cinders, and from the
oily elbows of its steel mints came the fizzing

not enjoyed more than half a doren whiffs

To their astonishment, their engine !cgan
