any anch tatement made by Dr. Lawrence, or any
other authoriwd peivon.
Ve produced just such a statement as he
calls for yesterday morning, in which the
fever cases were named, signed by Dr. Law
rence. It is evident the captain has lieeu
squarely cornered, and the less he now has
to say aliout the matter in public prints the
better for his personal reputation. People
enn understand his motives all through the
matter in denying that there was yellow-
fever on his boat, and forgive him for stick
ing to it up to a certain point, but when by
so doing he involves the reputation of
others for truth and veracity, sympathy for
him ceases, and if he is proven to le what
he claims he is not, he can have no jut
grortnd of complaint.
The answer of Senator Stanley Matthews
to a summons from the Putter committee.
'that he had an important engagement at
Newport which would prevent him from
obeying it," and "that whatever he intended
to do was of no consequence to the com
mittee," is likely to give rise to an im-ior-
Uint issue. Gen. Butler is reported to nave
said that if Matthews' answer mean: "that
he would not attend on a summons of the
house of representatives, the sooner the
issue was made the better for the house and
senate, so that the powers of Iwth can lie
determined. If the house has not power
to compel the attendance of witnesses, he
said, then the investigation is useless. He
d'ul not know what credit to give to certiin
newspaper reports lie had seen. If they
were true, Matthews had ln-en testifyin',' to
newspajier reporters. He tells to tiietn a
much as he. pleases, and we want him here
to tell as much as the committee pleases."
It may lie safely said that Butler, having
once made up his mind in this matter, will
not let it rest until Matthews is compiled
to obey the summons or the committee

if bis greenback proclivities and of bis in
tention of proclaiming them everywhere in
the li.tri t. Until very recently a Iti-pul-
lican was permitted to hold popular finan
cial view without end.tngerin bis poition
in the party or having his loyalty to it ques
tioned. Now this changed. The It-publican
party in every Hate, from Maine to Wis
consin, has adopted hard-money platforms
declared in favor of the payment of all
lymds in coin, the enforcrinent of the re
sumption act, against any increase in the
volume of currency in short, it is com
mitted to all the financial villainies
it has perjs trated ujion the people through
all the years it has had control of the govern
ment. And it permits no distant from these
doctrines. Its leaders and press proclaim
them, and a financial opinion that would
not have created surprise in Radical ranks
a short time ago is now regarded as rank
heresy, and is punished with e.veoiiiinmiica
lion. These f.u-ts will account for Thomas'
silence. He knows quite well that if lie
were to go through this district, read the
ltcpublican platform, and give tiiat plat
form his endorsement, Allen would beat
)dm five, thousand votes. The hard-money
people, numerically, count for very little in
this conte-t, and we believe dipt. Thomas
fully appreciates the difficulties the Repub

The Radical ringsters of Jackson coun
ty, feeling the hard blows inllictcd upon
them and their cause bv the (.'arbondale
Free Press, are using every effort to crush it
and to oust those who now control its col
umns. The present Republican member of
the General Assembly from this district,
Win. II. Woodward, is charged by the Free
Press with being the leading spirit in the
plot. It says:

All this persecution of tho Free Press
springs from a determination on its part
tosupport Allen for congress. It refused to
obey thu behests tif the Curbondulu clique
i'nd fur its temerity is to bo punlsh:d in
the conduct of its private business. Hhouhl
this rule be applied to Woodward, Burr nm
others of their kind, their piteous whining
would lie heard all over the district, and
every Republican paper would cry slmme
on it. Wu hope tho opinion expressed by
the Free Press that it will come out all
right is correct, and this wish will find a
cordial echo among Democrats everywhere.
People will not be slow in forming a cor
rect estimate of tho actors on one side of
this affair, and of the party whoso interests
At the ri.k of Wing considered pre
sumptous we will make a suggestion to the
sjieakers on our side. During this canvass
the financial features of our public policy
will, as it should, receive the greatest atten
tion from public speakers. It is at liest a
dry, uninteresting subject for discussion,
and nothing short of the magnitude and di
rectness ol its bearing upon the affairs of
the icplc could induce them to give a pa
tient hearing to it. Tho majority of speak
ers assume, in discussing it, that people are
as familiar with tho prominent features of
financial legislation since lSti'J as they
themselves are. Ill this they as
sume too much. To say that
not more than one in five can give an intel
ligent hearing to this subject i. we think,
uttering a lilieral truth; and the financial
question, as haiMIed in many instances,
tends rather to confuse the intelligent lis
tener than to enlighten him. In the right
sort of hands its history since 1"J2 the
manner in which it ran into a groove in
the interest of the molded classes; how it
was continued in that groove without hav
ing thoroughly aroused public sentiment
until twelve years afterward when the ef.
fects and manner of demonetizing silver
first dawned upon the public mind when
reciting this story the financial history of
the country embraced within then1 two pe
riods affords scope for the U -st, most Tarh-d
and effective power of a public speaker.
In the ordinary method of discussion the
5-20's and 10-4o's and the other se
ries of lxmds and the acts creating
them are sjniken of as things with which
everyliody is familiar. A sH-akerwill talk
alxmt the public faith act of 1 "09 as if
all whhin his hearing had the won Is of
it at the end of their tongues; the assertion
is made that silver w as demonetized, while
the story of the fraud is l-ft untold ; con
traction and its effects are glibly disposed
of, tuid the average hearer is left in a maze
of doubt as to what his public iii.truetT if
mentally sitru-ling with. In a tr'ncral
way this Is true of all features of the finan
cial question handled by public sts akers.
If thee gentlemen would take the pains to
Wirin at the beudnnin'.'. tell a connected
story, anil explain to oiler minds the
knowledge jkp.-u-ss.-d by themselves, it
would lie mutually advantageous to !th
hearer and speaker. The jieople demand
this kind of know led:."", and speakers and
new-papers will do well to recognize the
We hav e been told that tie: Iv-moc ra'ic
County Centra! committee will meet in this
city to-morrow to ilictiss the propriety of
taking steps lookiiiL' toward the nomination
of a county ticket this fall. We cannot be
lieve that this movement has its origin in a
desire to Wnelit thr patty in thi county, fir
is MipHirted by any con-iderable number of
Democrats. The argument that was ier
sistently anil industriously used during the
Tilden campaign a;;ain-t the policy of nom
inating for county oliiccs, and w hich pre
vailed, applies with increased force just
now. At that time there 'was it national
ticket in the field. Every dictat.j of party
principle and patty jxdicy required
that the most thorough organization
should m had to secure the suc
cess of the head of the ticket. All local
issues and differences idiould have Wen
swallowed up in the face of this overshadow
ing fact, and every Di-iikm rat to be voted for
on that day should have been on the
straight ticket. Others viewed it differ-
ntly, and a different policy prevailed. Mr.
John Robinson, whose democracy was and
is unquestioned, was at that time, a candi
date for sheriff. Mr. Peter Haup, a Repub
lican, and deputy United States Marshal
standing guard at the polls, under on act
that is infamous in the eyes of Democrats,
was his opponent. Democrats divided on
Robinson, went to Haup and elected him.
In justification of thiscotitse it was urged
that it would be folly to run county officers
on the straight ticket; that we could not
elect them; that it would be uselessly in
troducing discordant dements and bitter
feelings into tho canvass, and that, gener
ally, the policy of party nominations for
local olllccs was wrong in principle nnd
should be abandoned altogether. As wo
have said before, this policy prevailed,
and against the judgment of men whoso
position In the party and experience in pub'
lie affairs gave to their opinions weight and
respect. Now the Wot is on the other leg.
Some of these umo gentlemen who luWred
so hard for Mr. Saup and against Mr. Rob
inson, under protection of the cry of no-politics-iu-local-affiiirs,
arrt singing a differ
ent tune. In the peculiar condition of
things they itnagino they can see an oppor

party, and consequently they aroWcoining

is anxious to s'e the Democratic party suc

tive tickets and is contributing whatever
lies in its power to secure that end. It
would like to see every public office in
Alexander county, all other things being
equal, tilled with men of its own political
creed. But it does not believe this can bu
done this fall, and it does know that if the
I'lfempJ now '-'nn made by interested
parties to commit our organization to nomi
nations for local offices succeeds it will
result disastrously to tho whole ticket, It
will introduce intrigue and bargaining; it
will create dissei sions, and under tho cir
cumstances the in traduction of these
element would in all likelihood injure
the head of the ticket in this district
and might prove fatal to our
legislative ticket. The importune- of this
Utter point cannot lie too often alluded to.
It should not be permitted to pass out of
mind for a single instant, 4ml no -Hilitical
move of any consequence c:in Ik1 made in
this senatorial district without having a
Waring on this point. When, therefore, the
questiou of calling a convention to nominate

its Warings, and not x-rmit the canvass
