Issued bis proclamation to that affect.

ATTeaxiT-GxKUAt. Williams, Pres
ident Oram's nominee for the Chief Jus

other instance of the rapid

holders grow rich. It Is asserted that
when Williams was appointed to the of

as to be naabla to furnish apartments,
In Washington, and was com
pelled to borrow money for
tbat purpose. He ha held the atlorney-
geaeral'a efflce for two years, and lu that
time haa built a palatial residence and
furnished it luxuriously. The appoint

the senate, and has been postponed for
consideration, an exceptional proceeding

and so forth have crowded it out until

nounaed us heretofore for advising that
all electors opposed to lUdlcal misrule
should unite in a now political organiza
tion to defeat the Kepublican party, but
ha practices our advice. In the late can
vass he was hand and glove with the Re
publicans, and in a new organization
almost defeated the JUdlcsli of that
county, it Democrats, who refused to
fergettbathe had taught them to stand
by the old organisation and not aQliate
with the dissatisfied members of tbo He
publican party, hal not voted the Kadical
ticket, Potter's party would have won a
famous victory. Bat Petter is net incor
rigible. He will, ln time, learn that these
Democrats who refuse to sucriice party
pride are allies of tbe Kadlcalt, and
then Potter will talk and write at woll as

Because John Oberly's name has been
givon t railroad Wcomotive narrow
guage eome rural printer suggests that
Uo ought to go to Congress, aud Oberly !
takca It as complacently as a young mat-
uen uoet praitos iroin ner lover, ana re
futes the caresses of his friends in about
the same manner. He aoftly saya "don't"
and answers ''no,1' meaning all the time
"do" and "yes." lie belluves there is a
tiie in tho affairs of men, which, when
taken at its flood, leads on to fortune, and
evidently ha thinks that ltde it setting in
with him now, and be is afraid of losing
the benefit of it if dilatory ; so he parades
his rural neighbor's suggeition day by
day keeps it bsfore tbe people for tbe
sole purpose, be says, of doclinlng Con
gress in advance of Its offer, but really to
call attention to his avallilility and qual
ifications, that the people may not forget
him when tbe begin to look around to see
who they will ssnd to Congress.
John believes in taking time by the
forelock, and In forestalling others; so bo
opens up hi case before our present msu
etr has seen the inside of tb congres
sional halls, and ba is right; for there is
nothing like being In time; beside, by
starling out aboad ef everybody else, be
saves unpleasat clashing with the aspira
tions and interests of olhsrs, who might
in time be candidates it not nipped before
budding. Green, Allen, Wheeler, Caw
ford and Hartnell are all cavalierly treat
ed and prematurely anubbed, as though
postlblo candidates of the future.
There is strategy in this ; but tho bjtt
strategy of OlsrTy'a course is tbat which
enables him to take a nomination from
aay party or faction. His political itatus
Is mixed; he ii coquetting all around, so
tbat any party wishing to purchase, and
deeming him worthy a congressional nom
ination, my hivj bice. JIu holds himself
in position to take, with
some show of latter-day con
sistency, a nomination from either Radi
cals or Democrats ; and he has been care
ful to create availability for himself, so
as to bo deemed a strong candidate in
case of probability that thero is to be a
eloso contest, and candidates are wantod
who are popular with the large elemont
that cares for neither the Kepublican or
Democratic partios. but is interested for
or against reforms in govornmont; for or
against railroad or other monopolies ; for
or against the farmers in their tttues with
tho monopolists ; and who make those
matters paramount to the interests of
either of tho old parties as political or
Sinco the farmer's movement started,
Oberly has sprinkled his hair with hay
sesd every morning, and hat talked as well
at written, xuoro or lots for tho farmers,
and against the oppression of railroad
monopolists ; so that with tbe sincere ad
vocates of the tanner's or people's organ
izations he should be popular. Ana he
should certainly be popular with the rail
road inlerost, for is ho not th vice presi
dent of a railroad company himself t And
has not a locomotive been recently named
after him, an honor not conferred on one
inimical to the Intorosts of railroad com
panies, or one doubtful relstivo to them ?
And of late he has bosn a good deal given
to open oxpression In sustaining railroad
companies, where peoplo thought their in
terests suffering from them, aa in tbe case
of the Cairo and St. Luis railroad com
pany and the people of Aloxander cenn
ty, whore the latter aro paying Interest
on bonds Issued to a road that has not
been built, and has no prospect yet vis
ible of boing built.
Exorcising his much more than ordi
nary shrewdness, Oberly has made him
solf popular all around, and therefore is
the man for Congress. If tho Republi
cans aro smart, they will bo ahead of
everybody olse and givo him tho nomina
tion, ucarcoiy any wmtewasb would bo
nocetsary to make him a elmon
pure administration man. But tbe Dem
ocrats will be viry stupid, if thoy allow
me nepuuitcans to inui sieai a march on
them. With the prestige against them,
they will need Oberly's availability,
and can hardly bop to suceed without it.
And if tbey loin tbo Independent, reform
Republicans, In a people's movement, why
certainly Oberly will bo the proper man
for standard bearer iu this Congressional
diitrict: fur, liko the locomotive named
after bliu, ho Is progressive, and If nom
inated by the people's party, he woald bo
no time In adapting himtolf to tbo situa
tion, lie would resign his vice
presidency of the railroad company, or
der hit namr torn from the locomotlye
and stampped into tbe mud as disgraced
and blow monopolists generally akvi
Bo under any, and all possible circum
stances, Oberly is our coming man and
inuiv bo Clements' successor in congress.
Hall lo tbe chief, and make the way for
him broad and smooth I Tie Is to be our
next brilliant, narrow-gaugo congressman.
