We understand that Wetzel baa

the Sheriff that be bad rather be bung

was employed in the bakery and bad
more liberty than ia accorded to other

"setting things np" for tbe coming
State campaign, and the main ques
tion was as to whether the Democra
tic Convention should be held before
or after tbat of tbe Republicans,
which bad been appointed for tbe
first of August The gentlemen who
took possession of the Democratic
wire-works on tbat occasion, from
Senator Tburman down to General
Scbleicb, who is represented to be
ambitious of serving tbe Democracy
as a candidate for Attorney General,
expressed great solicitude as to what
tbey were pleased to term Demo
cratic principles. Tbey were afraid
their principles would be stolen by
tbe Republicans. They charged
President Hayes with steal
ing bis .Southern policy from
tha Democrats, and in tones of alarm
warned the Democratic brethren tbat
the Republican Convention might
steal all they had left "tbe dollar of
tbe fathers." It was argument of this
kind that Influence) the committee
to call tbe Democratic Stats Conven
tion to meet a week earlier tnan the
Republican Convention. It remains
a question whether tbe Democracy of
tbe State, so largely tinctured with
paper money aod inflation theories,
will follow tbe path blazed by Tbur
man, Thompson & Co. Your full
fledged Ureenbacker would rather
have even a gold dollar than a green
back with Ttiurmao's picture on It.
But If the plan laid down on tbe lat
Inst should b incorporated into tbe
Democratic platform, notwithstand
ing tbe bitter divisions that mast pre
cede such an accomplish meat, tbe
party will Had tbe larceny on its side.
Ia fact the eommlltee and its ad
