The Hon. J. E. McDonald's chances for the

The Cincinnati Commercial is authority

the election of D. W. Voorhees to the Hen

Voorhees ha thought it necessary to take
the stump in the senatorial race. This
course is infreoun', though there is at leant

It is now claimed that the salary-grab ac
cusation against Mr. Voorhees has been most
successfully answered Dy Mr. V. in his late
speeches, it turnsout, then, that the de
nunciation that act in our late state plat
form was an error. Ben. Butler shoui 1 have
an opportunity to run his race over again.
If not let him öe cauonized as a martyr to
an unjust prejudice.
From the Lojanspart Tha-os.
Nine-tenths of the democratic voters of
Cess county, could they give expression to
their opinions upon the subject, prefer Mr.
McDonald to Mr.Voorheos for United States
enator. We have yet to meet with a single
prominent democrat but who regards the
election of Mr. Voorhees as inimical to the
beat interests of the party.
From the New Albaay Leiter-Standard.
The Hon. D. W. Voorhees will make a
speech at Vincennes to-morrow night. It is
tobe of a political character, but we sin
cerely trust that the honorable gentleman is
not inaugurating a system of appearing on
the huntings as a claimant lor the enator
ship. It would be in bad taste, and injure
bitn in the estimation of many of his own
From l bo Winchester Journal.
The Richmond Free Press freely forgives
Dan. Voorhees for hia vote in favor of the
salary grab, but can not forgive McDonald,
because be is charged with being false to
the great financial principles of the demo
cratic party. To the average dmocrtic
mind, that salary grab business was not so
bad after all they only used it during the
campaign for political effect.
From the Washington Enterprise.
Tbe Hon. D. W.Voorbete delivered a speech
in this city, one week ago last night, to a
large and attentive audience. His views
tirxm the currency question were very gen
rally indorsed, but many who expected
to hear a pch without politics were dis
appointed in that particular. We believe be
is tb choice of a large majority of the people
in this part of the state lor United States
senator. He is undoubtedly the ablest states
man in the state.
From the Logansport Star.
Of all tbe democrats prominently spoken
of for United States senator Judge Hoi man
I certainly to be preferred. He baa made an
excellent and honorable record of himself
and the state, as a member of tbe lower
House, and we doubt not would make one
-equally as excellent in the Senate. He is
net taiuted with tbe salary grab, and is
mentally tbe equal cf any of the gentlemen
mentioned in connection "villi the place,
Iiis friends are urging bim vigorously.
From tbe New Albany Ltdger-StandarJ
The Indianapolis Sentinel is publiscing
from day to day the opinions of the press ot
the state upon the senatorial question
Frooi the extracts published it appears to
be about np and tack between Mr. McDon
ald and Mr. oorbeev it anything tuck Las
a little toe advantage, with a fine pronpect
between tbe t vo ot bringing about just suen
a result as was descrited by the Arkansas
woman between her husband and tbe bear,
a little ol toe d est hght" that any one
f Fron the Salllvan Democrat.
There la a disposition men I fee ted in cer
tain qua ten to extenuate tbe conduct of
ihoae vbo voied for the salary grab because
the same congress repealed tbe franking
privilege law. inus saving two milliou oi
dollars to tb9 poatofllce department. If
tbe revenue of that department
A the government had increased
that amount, or If by virtue
ol tbe abolition of the franking privilege tbe
mails wero earned that much cheaper, there
-oiizbt be some force In tbe argument. Tbe
carrying 3f tbe mails cost precisely as much
aa before, and a debate inongress on the day
Mr. Voorh made bis speech In Washing
ton. Daviess couuty, brought out the fact
that the d?loH in the postal revenues was
greater than tbe year betöre.
From the Terre Haute Joarn&l.
We have beretoiore explained Mr. Voor
bees' absence at tbe time of tbe passage of
the gold bill in the House. The committees
of the House were not jet appointed, and
no regular business was being callsd od.
Cen. Sehen ck sprung the gold bill In tbe
House on Friday, February 12th, when
there were firtv-five members not in their
under tbe geg rule, without an opportunity
for a word pf debate, forced its parage. Had
Mr. Voorhees been present he could not
have opened his inoutn in dlacussbrn and
bis vote would not have prevented its pas
sag. A to h!s position in regard to it no
one ever entertained a doubt.
From tbe Terr Haute Express.
The communication from Mr. McDonald,
di-cuseing his candidacy lor the Senate, pub
lished in this issue, is very creditable to that
gentleman. By saying so much we do not
intend to indorse the views that he ex
presses, but only to commend the can
dor and manliness of tbe man. Mr.
McDonald has been accused of a dis
position to compromise with his own
convictions in order to secure a seat
in tbe Senate. He says in his letter that he
stands squarely by the financial utterances
in his Greenca9.Ie speech, and that he is
very anxious to go to the Senate. This is
explicit and straightforward, without the
shadow, even, of "irlmming." Mr. McDoi
ald would honor the state if be should ie
elected to tbeSsna.e, but bis views on tbe
rroney question are such as to commend
bim to the sweets or prirate life for some
tima to come.
From the New Harmony Enquirer.
Wereproduca in another coluaiu an arti
cle from the Evansville Journal quite com
plimentary to our disiinuised representa
tive in congress, th Hon. W. K. Niblack.
This compliment is all the more valuable
be?auseUU just, an 1 coming as it does from
a political opponftnt, may be counted
as disinterested. We know that
Judge Niblack does not aspire to
senatorial honor, but should he be chosen
lv toe incoming legislature to succeed Mr.
Pratt, we feel very confident that Indiana
will be honored" by tbe selection. If
Southern Indiana sapplie the next
senator, and we certainly think it 1 en
titled to do so, we know ot no gentleman
who would be more acceptable to tbe whole
poonle than -J 'juge Niblack.
From the Vincennes Sun.
In favoiirig the election of the Hon. D. W.
Voorhees for United States senator we do
not wlihtobe understood as making any
personal warfare on Mr. McDonald. We
regard Mr. McDonald very highly as a gen
tleman and as a lawyer, but his views
are not what we believe to be for tbe best
interests of the Western people; therefore
we oppose him. We have carefullv re
frained from saying a word against Mr.
McDonald which would wound the feel
ings of himself and friends. But we
can not sav the same for the papers wiiich
have advocated his claims. Ou the con
trary, tlif ir columns have beou filled with
tbo most unmeasured abuse oi Vooihees.
This abuse has sometimes decendf d to the
lowest depta of vulgarity and ill-breeding.
Voorhees and McDonald'are both too good
men to bo slandered, and we have regretted
very much tbeoourseof soiueof the journals
towards Mr. Voorhees. We propose to keep
on in the wav we have cothmenced, and,
wt.ile fighting for Mr. Voorhees, we shall not
abuse Mr. McDonald.
From the New Harmony Register.
Our friend Dr. Thomas, editor of the Vin
cennes Sun, is so strong in bis advocacy of
D. W. Voorhees to the senatorsnip that,
in our humble opinion, be lacks discretion.
"We do not know what Gov. Hendricks
thinks or intends to do, but if he knows
what is good for him ho will keep bis flnger
out of the senatorial pi's this w inter. It be
is an aspirant for the presidency he can not
afford to make enemies of the hosts of
friends of Mr. Voorhees, who are scatterod
from Maine to Texas. Their influence
would likely be felt in a national convention."
This looks too much like an attempt at
nlimidation and a desire to crack the whip
over tho shoulders of the members of our
next legislature an act that is no longer
tolerated in this age ot progress. Go a
little slow, doctor. You can't make the
people believe that Governor Hendricks, not
being a candidate himself, will condescend
to have a finger in " the senatorial pie" for
the purpose of electing or defeating either of

The war made by the friends of Mr. Voor

canvass of the former gentleman for the
United States Senate, aa was tobe expected.
is producing a bad influence upon bis
prospects, it has invited discussion, and
that discussion has brought to light the
record made by Mr. Voorhees while in con
gress. That record is inconsistent even with
the late state platform, of which his friends
claim be was tbe autbor. It denounces tbe
salary grab, and be was a salary grabber; it
condemns the gold act, by which the 5:20
wore made payable in gold, and be com
pletely dodged that isue, deserting his
democratic friends in congress: besides
there areother points which bis own canvass
brought to light that are having the etlect ot
not been a very preat success. Tbe expres
sions of opiniou by the press cf the state are
decidedly unfavoralla to the election of Mr.
However, it is not our intention to go
deeper into tta:; we only .want to show
in a few words which effect this election
would generally have.
Iiis self-understood that tbe victory of tbe
democratic party at tbe las: electiou would
not have been possible without the aid of
the independent element, which formerly
stood on the side of the republican party,
and turned arcund nnder tbe belief that it
bad to expect from that party, only puritan
hypocrisy and suppression, btit- no earnest
Reform, not from above, but .up from be
low, was tbe tocsin of tbe last cam
paign. Reform, not on account of tbe
state, which naturally could not
be better than the mass of In
dividuals of which it consists, but
reform ot the individuals, in as far as we
hohl everybody severely and without in
dulgence responsible for bis actions. This
was and is a popular device.
Tbe republican partv has always under
stood to beat tbe opposition in promises
f reform from above. But the people have
become tired r f this kind of reform, consist
ing in the credit mobilier s'windle, in the
wholesale stealing in tbe southern Kates,
in bribery and corruption, in temperance
and other hypocrisy.
So it turned away of these promises ol
reform and decided for the ot her system,
wbich promised reform from below. Then
tbe salary-grablx-rs were emerged from con
gre3. ' Butler, Pardons and ethers were cov
ered with tbe political pall.
But, w bat etlect would the election of Mr.
Voorhees have for theo,pr sitiou in Iudiana?
Would it not amount to a confosMon that
the promise of reform was used by it only
at a trap to catch tbo voters? Would ft nut
signify that U.e opposition refers only to
tbeir opoonects, if speaking ot individual
responsibility, internum? not to measure
tbeir own representatives by the same
Mr. Voorhses' political career is one w hich
must make bim impossible to the democracy
if this partv expects a future. He does not
stand upon the fundamental principle of his
partv and never did. li s first debut in high
politics has hown this, and he has never
departed from this way. He commenced
his official career as Uuited States district
attorney for Indiana, witlt the outspoken
and generally known intention to influence
and lead the people in tbe sense of the dy
nasty at Washington ; rot to give expres
sion to ths ideas and wishes of the people,
but to inllaence the people in such a way
that at elections it would timply proclaim
the will of those governing. And theidoas
of th9 government at that time culminated,
as is well known, in considering . negro
slavery as tho greatest blessing for the
United States and in nationalzing if.
In tbo Sinthern conspiracy, following
shortly afterwards, snd leadii g to seet-ssion,
Voorhtes was to much suspicioned ot a
secret understanding with tbe conspirators,
that be was never able to purify himself
His congressional activity is a further
proof; nobody has been absent as otteu as
he vben important questions wero dis
cussed or important votes taken. But at
the time of the salary -grab he was there;
seven times out o: 10 different
votes which were taken before it
passed Voorhees voted in favor
of it, and only three t!mcs was be absent,
and this persistency in voting for the salary
grab was Mr. Voorbees last official ac'.ion.
His trrm in congress had ceased, the people
had elected another man lor his successor,
and the question was, whether be should in
the last moment, transfer by his vote, $5,000
to bis pockets or not.
I.-i which light would tbe opposition party
of Indiana, which has used this crime in
the bitterest manner against their oppo
nents, stand, if they would recompeo
with tbe ofnee of a United States senator
the man who, besides Butler, has done all in
his power that this crime was committed?
Would thev not tramp into tbe ground for
tbe next ten years all confidence, all belief,
and every hope on the honesty of their in
tentions for reform.

THE LEXINGTON CELEBRATION.
THE CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION OK THE BAT
TLB OP LEXINGTON, MASS. THE FLAN OF
The New York Tribune, of the 31st
nit., says: Tbe residents ' of tbe town
of Lexington, Mass., have determ
ined to celebrate, with ceremonies befitting
tbe occasion, the one hundredth anniversary
of tbe "Battle ot Lexington," on April 19
1875. Messrs. Charles Hudson, M. H. Mer
riam, and "W. II. Munroe, who have been
appointed a "Committee or Invitations,"
have .ssued a circular, in wbich thev make
tbe following statement: The revolution
which made us an independent nation
is worthy of the very highest
consideration, and no locality can be
more appropriate for commemorating
its opening sceneä than tho very spot where
oroducinc distrust in tbe minds of the dem- the fcrst blood was ned, the Urst martyrs
ocratic members of tbe legislature as to the fed, d the first resi-taxce in arms was cf
propriety of elevating him to the Senate,
tbus virtually committing the party in the
state to an indorsement or bis errors and
his short-comiugs. In another columu will
be found an article copied from ine In
dianapolis Sentinel, which pretty tborongbly
exposes the course of Mr. V. in congress, as
well as the Inconsistency w hich would be
charged againet tbe democratic party in
yielding bim a support.
From the Logansport Pu&ros.
Mr. Voorhees has brought that criticism
upou himself of which he so vehemently
complains. If Mr. V. would escape criticism
be should at once retire to the rear, where
he assured the public a few years ago he in
tended Kiog. There is no compulsion in
this thing ol his being a candidate; and there
is certainly no necessity in hte making b
candidature bo prominent. -However, he
has the great . American privilege to work
out his own destiny in his owe way, and if
he lnl-tt on putting up bis bead be
must expect others, who 'don't like
that head, to hit it if they can. In
his speech ihe other day at Washing
ton, this state, Mr. Voorhees indulged in a
good deal of special pleading, bordering very
closely on tbe demagogue order a thirg ut
terly inconsistent with that gentleman's
character, and very mtch below his notions
of the proprieties belonging to tte high oi
fice which hei so assiduously, .and some
wbat in a novel way, seeking. But then
that is Mr. Voorhets wr.y, and it is not for
the Pharos to sa that it is an improper way
to him. Such a course, however, would be
inconsistent for Mr. Meonald, who doe
not resort to or so much rely on the argu
mentum ad homkiem, of which Xlr. V. is
TUR DAILT tELEÜCAPa (EKMAN,) ON TUE
In tbe struggle, or, if you wish, Luc be can
didacy, for tbe position of a United States
senator, to be appointed by the next legisla
ture, they, of course, also play the game of
exaggeration. This is done mainly by pre
senting the chances of the two principal can
didates. Especially the friends and advo
cates ot Mr. Voorhees adbore to tu system
of bragging in a great measure. This vic
tory is presented every moment as una
voidable only to bring to hi side those who
are not determined yet.
As far. however, as tbe press of tbe Mate is
.seats, called th previous question, and i the rofiex of public opinion, this effort has
xt Verralll ion.
