There are many Republicans In Cairo
who object lo the manner In which the
convention held at the court house In
thU city on Inst .Saturday, wa run, and
w hen approached with reference to the
matter do not hesitate to express their
sentiments Knowing this fact, a
reporter of the Ur llktin yesterday called
upon a number of the more prominent
fif these dissatisfied gentlemen with the
view of ascertaining as near as possible
the grounds upon which they base their
objections. Our reporter called upon not
less than half a dozen tnvn with whom
he talked the subject over
Some ot these gentlemen lcel very
sore, and arc very emphatic lu their as
sertions of a determination not to submit
to being controlled by such men as sonic
ot the men who made themselves so
prominent In the convention of last Sat
urday. Said one of them : "1 object to
Bill Scott being allowed to run the
'Rcpubliacn party of this county. We
'all know w ho Scott is and the huninc s
'he follows. He has been Indicted
'and lined for keeping a common
'gambling house, and I object
'to allowing such men to assume
the control of the Republican party of
'tins county." Said another: "If the
Republicans of Alexander county fuo
'mit to such outrages as that perpetrated
'upon it last Saturday, then I can no
'longer act with that party. 1 w ill not
'trnternize with a party that is controlled
'by such a gang ol bummers as thoe
'who run the convention on last Satur
May." A third gentleman said: "We nre

The ratification meeting la-st even

Our portly and eloquent triend, Joe
Robarts, of the Jackson county Era, w as
the first gentleman to address

office with great credit. He had no fav
orite, but proposed to support the man
heartily who received the nomination.
He lauded tlic nominees of the
4'incinnati convention to the
skies, and declared that never
had any party since the days of the
sainted Lincoln, K-cn adorned witli the
names ol beings so noble as these of
llayes and Wheeler, lu fact, his talk
was Hayesy throughout, as he seemed in
a very hazy mood. We shall not at
tempt to give the exact language ot the
shakers, among whom were Mr. Frick,
of Jonesboro, Mr. Willis, of Metrop
olis, Mr. Pugh, ot Murphysboro, Mr.
Parks ot DuQuoin, and Mr. McCartney
of Metropolis. All these gentlemcu
echoed the words ol Mr. Robarts. with
the exception of Mr. Pugh and Mr. Mc
Cartney. Mr. Pugh told several little
stories, and got up a very little smilo,
which possibly was heard by attentive
listeners, had they beeu expecting any
hilarity. This Joseph neglected to do,
and retired, as ho had spoken, amid the
greatest quietude. Mr. McCartney,
brother of J. F., varied his speech a very
little hit from that of Mr. Robarts, by
saying that he knew two tblugs, and it
may he he does.
PUT IT OFF.
Jarkaon County Want In Rrtrriu
tnilv Contention PoMwourtt,
The loliowing preamble and resolu
tions, adopted at a mass convention held
at Murphysboro, Jackson county, will
bo presented and read In tho Radical
convention to ho held In this city to-day.
It Is altogether probablo that there will
be a very lively scene in the convention
about the time these resolutions are read.
Whereas 'l'C two days' notice has
been giveu by the Central Committee of
the Fiftieth senatorial district, calling a
convention to be held in Cairo, Illinois,
on Tuesday, Juno 27th, IX74J, for the pur
pose ot placing in nomination a candidate
for State senator, and a candidate lor
representative In the State legislature ;
Wiif.kf.as It is the busiest season of
the year, thus preventing the bone and
sinew of the party attending nnd partici
pating In the proceedings ot this conven
tion, owing to the tact that luttlclent time
has not been given to the people of the
several counties that they ailht have
an opportunity to givo expression ot
their choice ot candidates, therefore be It
Resolved, That It is the senso ot this
mass convention assembled, that such
hasty action and short notice as has been
given by our Senatorial Committee, ii
in our opinion, unwise. Inexpedient and
Impolitic, and productive of nothing but
dissension, dissatisfaction and Injury to
the best Interest and snecest of the party ;
B(olvl, That tblt convention most
respectfully reqne 't the Central Coramit
t to reconsider and postpone thf-ir pre
vious order, and provide for another
convention, giving ample time ior notice
to the people of the respective countie
of the district, that thev mar give ex
pression to their choice of candidates ;
Retnlrtd. That ft eopv of these resolu
tions bo Immediately forwarded to the
members of the Fiftieth Senatorial district
central committee for their careful con
sideration, and we respectfully nsk that
such convention bo held at such time and
season of the yearns will nllow a general
and full representation ol tho people
through and by delegate conventions, in
each township of the counties.
