To correct any false impressions that
may have been produced by the
Democratic papers in and out of the
State and their penny whistle satellites,
as to the regularity of the nomination for
Governor of Hon. J. Proctor Knott by
the recent Democratic State Convention,
we publish the statement of Hon. Isaac
Caldwell.the chairman of the convention,
in whose ability, honor and veracity every
one will have confidence, and also that
of the secretaries of the convention. In
view of these statements every one will
concur in the belief that Knott was fairly
nominated and that to pronounce Jones
nominated under the violation of instructions
by live votes fiom Owen
county without the opportunity for
correction would have been a monstrous
fraud which might have resulted in the
defeat of the parly at the polls.
This principle was so plain that Nelson,
the chief friend of Jones, moved the
unanimous nomination of Knott, and
he and Bryan, who put Jones in nomination,
were appointed on the committee
to inform Knott of his unanimous nomination,
which duty they performed and
Jones himself came out in a decided
speech recognizing the nomination of
Knott and refusing emphatically to he
considered as in the slightest degree disaffected
as to the nomination.
This ouirht to satisfy every fair mqn as
to the regularity and validity of the nomination
of Knott. And all who are truo
to the Democratic party, whether would
be leaders or privates, will do what they
can to secure his election, instead of ministering
to the disaffection attempted to
be produced by Republicans, and
Democrats. On the contrary
what a howl of indignation would
have been justly raisf d if Jones had been
pronounced nominated by five delegates
from Owen county violating instructions
in favor of Knott when the delegation
from that county were trying to correct
The nomination of Knott has been
ollioially promulgated, and all truo Democrats
are earnestly and enthu.siastic.tlly
To tiik Pkoplk of Kentucky: I recently
pieslded as Chairman of a Democratic Stnto
Convention In Louisville, Ky. This was n
novel position lor me and placed me in a relation
to the Democratic- party In tho Statu
whfch demands of mo that tho party which
trusted me shall not Miller In ciodlt or character
In tho Statu or county by nny chnrgerfor
Insinuations ot unliil practices in so much
oi thoaeilon ot the Convention as concerns
the part 1 bore In It. Holening to those
clmruesns made In thoelicles oi defeated politicians
and disappointed newspapeis, I .state
First The first delay of the summing up of
thellnnl ballot between Col. Jones ond Mr.
fnv (Invnrnor vvus mntln liv Mm tiltuiils
of Col. Jones, who Insisted on tho right oi n I
Mr. Kendall to cast tlueo votes for the county
of Klllott in invor ot ;ot. Jones, this vote
wus challenged on the lloor by the rrlends of
Mr. Knott, and Mr. Kendall diew his credentials
lroin his pocket, which was conclusive
proof that tho credentials had not been before
the Committee on Credentials, and It was
conceded byboth parties that Mr. Kendallhad
not answered lor Klllott county on tho day
precnllng. The best I could do for Col. Joues
on these facts was to refer tho credentials to
the committee, who reported iu favor ot Mr.
Keudall's right to cast tho vote, and I so
ruled It, and tho vote was cast for Colonel
Second Pendln -ho contest ovor tho Elliott
county vote, Mi. Rovell, clin' 'man of tho
Owen county delegation, wus clamoring and
persisting in hi- rluht to change the vote of
Owen county. I did not then know what
change hi1 wished to make, but told him repeatedly
that hi.- appllcaiion could not bo
heard until tho Klllott county vole was settled,
lor the plain that under the rule
adopted on thothst dny ot the convention,
the ballot of any cnnnt could not ho changed
until the c. ill ot the counties was completed,
nor tiller t ho result oi t he ballot was nnnou need.
I considered the Elliott county ca-o necessary
to complete the call, and could not
there ore hear an ntl'ir to change a ballot until
that no was of. Mr. Huvell was
intensely anxious that i I- demand should
not bo cut oil by th announcement of the
the ballot, and loft his place and came
Immediately under the ohali man's stand to
urgo his demand. I told him he. should be
fairly dealt by, and w ten the call was com
pleted by deciding the Elliott county case,
ho should be heard.
Tiilrd When the Elliott county case had
been disponed ot and Hie vo e cast for Col.
Jones, I gaw ihp lloor to Mr. Hi veil, on his
claim oi light to change the vote ot Owen
count v. Till-created such a llery contest as
the change ol five votes fiom Joae- to live
votes lor Kiloit on a very closu ballot would
naturally A lonu time whs consumed
with horn two to n dozen men speaking at
tht same tluiH, the detail- ol which are i ot
worth repeating, when finally It was announced
oy thechiilrmaii ot the Owen delegation
ami the lact echoed by several of the
delegates nolo that county that the opposition
had yleldod, and by consent the thirteen
votes were to he c ist solid lor Knott, In obedience
to tho Instructions of the pilmruy
inooiing In Owen county. I Inquired: ' Is
llinlngreed?" and several voices .said j es, ami
tr. Petllt, onoof the Secretaries, announced,
in a loud, clear voice, the vote ot Owen county
Is chanced from uUni lor Knott and live
tor Jones to thirteen lor Knott, and no protest
or denial was heard on the stand, and my
lricnds standing and .sitting near
tho responsibility of
deciding a difficult question, and I appi
theconcrntulailons, for I did not led very
ciear as to ho . to decide, and I was considering
whether I would decide at all or leler tho
matter to a voteof the convention, llui con-less
to a very diclded conviction that Knott
was falily entitled o the vote.
Fourth Whilst the Owen county matter
was yet under ciiislilern' Ion there were clamorous
demands fiom some f the districts In
Louisville and lioin elsewhere to change
votes, which I relused to newuutll theOweu
county question was disposed of. I'hen began
chungo upon change fiom Jones to Knott until
Col. Jones' lecognlzed lenders ou the lloor
withdrew him lroin the contest, and .Mr.
Knott's nomination was, on motion, made
unanimous by acclnmtl ion, and Mi. liryan,
and Mr. Nelson, Col. Jone-' leaders, headed
the committee that escorted Mr. Knott to the
plat form to respoud to the culls for lilin, as
the usage Is.
Fifth There was never a time whn I had
the right to order the result of the ballot to bo
announced. I made no mistake and caused
no delay ou that point. The ballot was never
completed or announced, but pending the
ballot, Colonel Jones was wlthdrawii by his
lenders, and Mr. Knott was nominated, not
by ballot, but by acclamation, iu the absence
of a competitor, and without a dissenting
vote. I did not decide or rule on the Owen
county vote, and in no way contributed to
the nomination of Mr. Knott or the defeat of
Col. Jones. Isaac Caldwkll.
Louisville, May 18.
May 18. Hon. Imae Caldwell:
Referring to the charues of unfairness practiced
In the Democratic Convention Just adjourned
in this city, nnd unjustly made
against you we leel that a statement from
us, as Secretaries ot that convention thereon
duty, is due. On the seventh aid last ballot
for Governor on yesterday, when the county
of Elliott was called, a delegate claimed the
ritfht to cast Its vote, which wns clwllonsed,
when he presented a paper clalmluc it nsnu
thorlty for his acllon. Mr. Jones' ft lends
pressed the rUlit of the delegate to cast tho
vote, iu thefaceof the fact that the county had
not. theretoloie been cast by him. As chairman,
you dliocteil tho county to be passed
and referred the paper which had beon sent
to the Secretary to the
Col. Willi, the chairman ol the committee,
tool; c iiimc of the paper and called
the comiimI.K." together to It, when
the call proceeded. After the call had been
made, nnd pending the report ol ihe Committee
on Ciedeu lals, Mr. Revell, the chairman
ot tho Owen county de enatlon, hud
demanded to be heard, cla mlug the right
to chnimo the vote ol tho county irom eight
for Knott und five for Jones to thirteen tor
Knott. As chairman you told him that he
should be heard when the question from Elliott
had beon settled. Whilst the Committee
on Credentlalh were out, Mr. Re voll came
Immediately in nont of the chair, accompanied
by several ot his delegates, de-main
lug to make the chouse, and other Owen
delegates madeearnest opposition thereto. In
vain you tiled to preserve older. Thus proceeding.
Col. Wall leported lroin Ills committee
the i ig.it of Klllott county to
by the proxy, when you directed Ihe
three votes ot Klllott to be lecorded tor Mr.
Joues. On the demand ol Mr. Rovell, the pro-'
ceedlngs of the Owen county convention '
were lead, which showpd that the jcounty
had Instructed it- delegates to vote first for
Uon. Huckner and secondly, ".solidly for J.
Proctor Knott." The contention in the Owen
delegation at this time was rteice, and result-1
ed in leavo being granted for the withdrawal
of thodoleipUlou lor five minutes
lion, upontneir return tt was announced,
by tho chulrmun that the contest was settled
nnd the voto was to be cast in accordance
with the instructions, whereupon the thirteen
votes of Owen wero recorded tor Knott
with the assent of the whole delegation.
Other ohanises wero being made, when Mr.
Nelson, of Campbell, withdiew .lie name of
Col. Joiie, seconded by Mr. liryan, of Kou-ton,
who moved to inako the nomination of
Mr. ICnott unanimous. There was no time
preceding tho final ueilon of Owen county at.
which yon could havo ordered the result of
lho ballot to be announced, except iu violation
oftho rulosand practice of tlie convention.
Iu tact, the ballot was nevor completed
nor reaiiy for announcement, Mr. Knott's
nomination being consummated as stated
1'liu original tnlly sheet shows that the voto
u cast, beioio any ohango was made by Owen
county, stood 37.1 .'1-5 lor Jones, and 301 i?-5 for
Knott, nnd wheu Cwen county's voto was
finally recorded In accordance Willi the instructions
of Owen county It stood 3H9 '2-5 for
Knott, and M :i a for Joues. Othor clianuesi
wero made Immediately and beforo time wasi
given for a sumiului: up, theieby giving
Knott an Increased majority. Very truly, etc.,
