Mn. Thomas S. Hiimiwav may bo
very clever gentleman ; but ono of the
most unwarranted suppositions of his
life Is that ho stands n chance for the
Hepublican nomination for governor,
it matters littlo that lie Is an upright
circumspect gentleman. Ills life has not
been devoted lo tho abuse of the Demo
orotic party, nor the perfecting of strate
gelic movements lor his own personal
aggrandizement. Hence, we feel abiin
dantly warranted In saying that while
afhbiirno, Moulton and the Ilkeol them
aplro to gubernatorial honors, the hart
oi liidgway will bang high upon the
willow. Weie ho n member of Hie Dem
ocrallo parly wherein unquestionable

Vt the electlou held in Mound City, on
Tuesday last, J. It. Cunningham w,r? a
candidate for tlm orttee of city atwrncy.
an.J received only three votes wit of a to
tal of nearly two homirw!. From this
fact we are taainl to form ne it two
coocliisioni.. that tho wti hun
dred votri ot f afc who mw npoo a
timsorht to mafc CnamnghsiLn th
l2.il adrWr of the nty, greatly over-H-
tlrrtateil his lgal attainment-; or that th
people ol Mottml City k not appreciate
him. Ii It likely, we de-ire to a-k. tlat
the three voter' are right ami the seven
hundred wrong ? Not a bit ot it. Dur
ing a v-hoU year .Mr. Cunningham made
it a point to devote an hour a day. some
times two hours, to a study of the law;
and when we add that the books he read
were the property ot Judge Mulk.j.we
cannot understand why anybody should
quction his ability as a lawyer. That,
upon bis Charleston examination, lie did
not know who was the Supreme littler of
the L Diverse, Is nothing to his disadvan
tage, since the question was an Illegiti
mate one of which Blackstone makes no
mention. Hence wo Insist that Mound
City doesn't value Cunningham at his
worth, as she will Warn some ot these
days, when, in tho defense ot a "deep
ease" that has all the "line points In It,"
she is compelled to employ him at an ex
pense of live hundred dollars, or a dol

Tlm following Is (he platform ol Iho
Indiana Democracy, adopted at the Slato
convention held iii Indianapolis on the
ii:oi.ajuiios or ritixciri.i:n.
Tlio Democracy of Indiana declare
their fidelity to afl the provisions of the
fcdural constitution ; to a perpetual union
ol the States ; to local sell-government In
every section ; to all public trusts mid
obligations; to the honest payment ol
tho public debt ; to the preservation of
the piddle faith; to the maintenance ol
free schools and lo the pure nnd econom
ical administration of tlio federal, State
and municipal governments. They con
template with alarm the distress thai pre
vails, the wide-spread financial ruin that
Impends over the people, and the corrup
tion that pervades tlio public service: and
they charge tliatthe-e evils are tlio direct
results ol the personal government, un

to unite with them. They declare :
First That tlie civil service of tho jiov
eminent lias become corruptand is made
ino ouject oi personal gam, and mat It is
the llr.st dniv which thu neoolu owe lo
themselves and the government to restore
the tests of honesty, capacity and fidelity
in the selections of persons to fill the pub
Second Tlie repeated exposures ol'cor-
riititiuii in I In; administration of every
brunch of public allalrs, call lor con
tinued and thorough liiu'stliratloii. not
only that corrupt practices may bo
brought to light and the guilty nartle.s to
miiilshnicut. hut also that It may bo
made clear to the people that their only
remedy for reform Is by making agciier-
ii ami tiiorougu ciiauge.
Third That ictreuchiuenl and econ-
oiny aio indispeiiHlblo hi Federal, State
urn mimiclpal iiiluiinl-tratiou, as an cs
eiitl.il means tow-ards IcssciiIul' tho bur.

majority ol the house of representatives
for the re.Iiicilon of the exiien-es ol' the
I'cderal government to a jut .standard
anil ineir determination to lessen the
number of usclc-s olllces.
Fourth We believe in ouraticicnt doc
trine that gold and silver are tho true and
.-ate basis lor the currency, and we are
in favor of incisures and politics that
will produce uniformity in value in the
coin and paper money of tlio country,
without destroying or embarrassing tlie
uiiMiiCfS interests oi me people, vvo oi
pose tbo contraction of the volume of our
paper currency, and declare in favor of
the adoption of measures looking to the
graduel retlremc at of the circulation of
the national banks and the substitution
therefore ol circulating notes is-ued by
authority of the government.
Sixth We recognize witli patriotic
satisfaction the vast recuperative energies
with which our country is endowed, and
we oh-erre that in spite of tlie constant
interterence with the law of commerce
which hiM t"m practiced, our currency
htu improved In proportion as our
weaith tow increased, and .tho sense of
aaUonai and looal securitv has been cou
We are, therefore, of the opinion that a
nattiril return to ip.-;se jiaym. nts will be
romoteil by the iiicrea of national

Eighth 'The act of congress for the re
sumption of speeiapayuenison the 1st
of January, ISTtl, was a party measure,
devised In secret caucus for party ends
and forced through the house of rep
resentatives without tlie allowance of
amendments or debate under (tarty dtelp
llne. It paralies Industry, creates ills
trust of the liiture, turns the laborer and
producer out of Imployment, Is a stand
ing threat upon business men, and should
at once bo repealed without any condi
Ninth As Democrats we may Indulge
In laudable pride at tho great success or
our common school system, which has
its origin In Democratic policy and Its
development In Democratic measures
Wo will stand by and foro-.er maintain
our coiistltiitlou.il provision which guar
antees our common school tund from di
minution and misappropriation, and Its
use only to support non-ectarlan com
mon schools; and wo denounce as ene
mies of tlie schools tho licpubllcan poli
ticians who, for (tarty end-, have .oii"ht
to bring lliem Into political and citarian
Tenth We believe that a license law
properly guarded Is the true principle in
legislation upon tlio liquor trallle.
Eleventh It Is not tlie right ol any po
litical party to make Hie just chillis ol
the I 'nlon soldiers, their widows and eldl
dren the subject ol parli-au contioveisy ;
forsiicli rights are most secure wlici. pio
tooted by nil thu people, and mo endang

and maintain their lights to honors, to
pensions and to equal bounties, not as

coal, ami neiiig nan l ot ignition, it was
deemed useless until Iho year 17fi.'i, when
a remisylvanla blacksmith, named Whet
stone, brought It Into notice. His success
In burning it induced persons to dig for
It; but when round, every person con
nected with the enterprl-o had to experi
ment on its combustion, mid vain were
the attempt to burn it by the majority
in uieiii, auii nu (.imo io ino couciiisioi
that It would not come Into general use
About the year 1S00. Mr. MorrK who
had a large tract ol laud lu Scbiivkill
county, I'cnnsylvaiiia, procured a quant.
lly ol coal thcrcfioin, and took It to
Philadelphia city, but lio was unable
witli all ids Heroic exertions to bring it
into notice, and abandoned bis plans
From that time until LSCll It was talked
nooutas n humbug; when neeldcntly a
bed of coal was found In digging n tall
race for a water wheel for a forge, which
induced another blacksmith, Darld Mer
lin, to make a trial ol it. Ills success
was generally made known, which In
duced others to tr.v to burn I'cnnsylvaiiia
