THE PEOPLE'S CONVENTION
AND ITS CANDIDATES.
Probably in the history of Mor.
gan county no nssomblafjo of ber
citiaena ever was looked opon with
more interest than the People's Con
vention of tha 3rd. The object for
which the people bad called them
selves together, and the entire igno
ring of political prejudices and pro
ductions which was absolutely es
sential to the accomplishment of
that object, the result that woold
neceejarily follow the accomplish
ment of the object all combined to
create an inttinso interest in the
pnblie mind. Our Court House
Ring, which hhs hold undisputed
sway over tho affairs of Morgan
county for years and years pant,
and which has been speculating
with all the greediness of its nature
on the profits that would be forth
coming to its individual members
In the distributing of fat contracts
for building Tike Roads, weto wail
lnr, watching, lipping, praying for
some irreconcilable, dispute to ariso
which would rei.d the Convention in
twain. Wany of our (silicons, who
are cot possessed of any considers
ble amount of tsxullu property, but
who are willing to cast their votes
and lift up their voices to impose
the Tike Road tax on their more
wealthy neighbors, for the reason
that they cannot bo injured thereby
and may possibly be benefitted,
could be aocn in knots on the street
corners indicating their hostility to
the Convention by laughter, jeers
and ribaldry. Many of our Bond
Lords were on hnnd, using all their
influence to corrupt delegates and
induce them to return to their homes
without participating in tbe Con
vention; nnd, when they thought
they had accomplished sortelhin
toward that end, thy could be seen
chuckling to themselves over their
ability to friglr.en somo milk and-
water chap that budn't mind e
nough to suo thoir object. A man
with half the ordinary stock of hu
man intelligence might have known
that these Bond Lords, of Morgan,
aro not only willing but solicitous
that tho Tike Rouds shall bo bu'lt
They want good roads on which
their ploaso.ru carriages can travol,
and, as their bonds nro not subject
to the Piko Road taxation, they
deem the present law a God -send to
them, and tbey will fight hard and
unccningly to have it put in exe
cution, hero in Morgan. On the
other hand tho anli-Piko men were
to be seen every where earnestly
engaged in adjusting multors so that
harmony would prevail. They
knew the obstacles the Court House
Ring, Bond-Lords and a few others
wore throwing ir, their way, and
they strode earnestly, ana wo mny
I "ticecsstully, to rise above thom.
They were principally composed ol
... ,... And i,,dM.t.rinii ft.pn.ino
population tho owners of tho real
estate which the Pikers proposo to
bunion with Pike Road taxation
end they felt that they had tho
right, and were doing right to luy
asido thoir peculiar political views
Id older to protect themselves a-
gaiiiBt tho local outrago with which
they aro threatened. How well
they done so was made manifest in
their manner of putting their ticket
in the field. Their cuiididntus for
Representative, Probate Judgo. Re-
corder, and Coroner were nomina
ted by acclamation, without a dis
senting vo;co j and all wero highly
pleased with the selections made by
oallot of cnndidir.es for the other of
fices. Another cvidenco of tho
com pleto victory of tha anti.Pike
men over the Court House Ring and
Bond-Lords, was in the adoption,
with hearty unanimity, of the anti
Pike Resolutions, which plainly
mako the issue ol " Pike or no Pike"
in tho election of a county tickot
this Fall. The dclusivo "manifesto,"
which tho Court Houso Ring forced
our county Commissioners to issue
in order to break down tho Pooplo's
Convention, and thereby insure the
election of the Republican Piko tick
et, met Us fttto in theso resolutions.
Although not a word of mention
made in tho resolutions of tho '-man-ifosto,"
j'ct their being adopted and
issued some weeks after tho issuing
of tho "manifesto," and their being
so plain and unmistakable in thoir
demand that the Commissioners
shall not act on this quostion until
the poople render thoir decision
this Full's election by electing
ticket for or aguinst the project,
clearly indicates that tho people
look upon tho issuing of the "inani
festo" at) a mcr political trick ir.
interest of the Republican Piko tick
ct. Yes, tho anti-Piko men were
here victoriousovcr tho Court Houmo
Ring and liona Lords. The "man
ifesto" dodgo didn't &o down with
tho people. It was too frond ulent
on its face to pass current easily,
and the Convention cast it ono
as a dodgo to catch voles by.
The Convention selected
us its candidate for Representative
a man in tho neighborhood of 30
years of age, who bears a most
estimable character wherever he is
known. Mr. l'imberlake entered
the army as a private at the com
mencement of tho rebellion, and by
his valor and strsiight-iorward, man
ly course a a 1 oldier, became, by
promotion after promotion, a Cap
tain in the 20th O. Y. I. He was
with the regiment in every engage
ment in which it was in up to the
timo of his sovera nee from it. Since
tho war, ho lias bt-cn principally en
gaged in school teaching, and pur
suing thoxostndiss necossnry to fit
'aim for his chosen profession, tho
ministry. He has latuly been duly
licensed as a Me'.li odist minister.
For Probate Judge,
FIN. R. HANNA

well known to the pooplnof Morgan
as a lawyer of no I ncngre talent, and
who will fill the 0! flee to which the
peonlo will elect hrm this Full with
