Wo fear it, because, instead of its giv

Rkmaiiks. Tun Bum.ktin made
the charge that Gen. Anderson had fur
nished free cars, to and from his Carmi
convention, to the delegates of Frank

bcrs of that convention, in his place,

a car for the use of tho delegates, who
would bo taken to Carmi aud returned

and not tho man tho office,
obtain, cither by himself or agent, that

tho convention ? and didn't tho Gen

have been told liu did ; but if ho

ho is not; but it is just possible, that
