The brave and philanthropic Mr. Con
way, who sees both backs of the Mississip
pi from New Orleans to New Madrid liter
ally lined with the terrified negroes, who
on bended knees and with uplifted hands
implore every passiu'j; steamer to take them
out of the South, and beyond the reach
of several hundred thousand white-leagur-ers,
who are loitering in the adjacent woods
and adorning every tree and sapling with
the dangling bodies of the black unfortu
nates this brave man Conway, whose
mind's eye sees this terrible picture, is pre
paring a war vessel to convoy the fleet of
steamers he will employ, to bring up the
t'ivct flic great multitudcsnf waiting blacks!
Men who know anything about it, know that
there are but very few blac ks cominif North
at this time, and that a steam yawl would
fully answer all the demands of the ser
vice; but all that amounts to nothing. Tho
Republican party wants a sensation, Cpn
way is panting for notoriety, and to be gov
erned by the farts or to listen to the dic
tates of icisin would defeat both of these
aims. Hence, although two negroes are
returning for every one that is going out,
Conway will go South; he'll go armed, and
although the folly, failure and utter
absurdity of his trip will become more and
more apparent as he continues to penetrate
Dixie land, yet the recitals of his wonder
fa! doings, ot hiii fights with guerillas and
whitc-leaguers, his daring exploits in res
cuing ni'grws herded hy the. hundred to
awaithang'tng, the food he will give out to
the starving, and the nei;ro bodies he'll see
lying around loose, the heads of men and
women ami the bodies of black babies he'll
h impaled upon lence etakes, will "fire
the Northern heart" afresh, cause a wide
pread howl if indignation to go up,
mingled with prtaus ot praise for the
buld and dahhing Conway the biggest
fraud of the 10th ceimnv.
, THE PEOPLE WILL NOT FORGET.
"The people will not forget that tho
Damocratic majority in congress has re-
fused to appropriate money for the support
,::",of the army."
Teople wh inform themselves at the
Jcadiflff I"01' ' current news ought not to
will not forget thnt a more shameless
or braren falsehood than that embodied in
lie quoted paragraph, was never penned or
uttered! Tho Democratic majority did
pass tho army appropriation bill, making
abundant provision for every department of
the service, imposing no other condition than
that the President should not use Federal
bayonets to police tho polls. This bill did
not become a law because President Hayes
vetoed it. He confessed that it was con
trary to tho genius of our institutions to
place soldiers at tho poi but cahnci
that the restrictions placed in the bill pre
vented tho use of the army to repel even
foreign invasion on election day. Again
the Democratic majority passed the army
appropriation bill, making, as before,
a liberal allowance for every branch
of the service, only stipulating that
the army should not be brought
to the polls, except to repel foreign
foes. This bill was drawn in exact con
formity with the avowed sentiment ot the
President and a majority of his cabinet,
and until it had passed the House, it was
understood, nay openly announced, that
the President would give it his approval.
But the Chandlers and Garfields of Con
gress beseiged the president, convinced
hiin that the Republican party, like the
Kellogg Louisiana-Legislature, would fall
of its own rottenness unless propped up by
Federal bayonets, and tho result is known
to the country. He vetoed the seconu uni
shamefully stultifying himself in doing
so, swallowing his own solemn avowals,
and rendering himself the pliant tool of the
most dangerous political fanatic on the face
of the earth.
Thus on two distinct occasions did
the Democratic majority vote the
army every dollar that had been asked, and
had the President signed the first bill, as he
should have done, or the second bill as he
promised to do, he would thereby have se
cured to the army ample food and lawful
pay for a year from the 1st day of July
The first act of the Democratic majority
was to ote the army plentiful supplies
the second act was to vote it plentiful sup
plies again. The supplies thus voted were as
often stopped by" the President; and upon
him and his violentlv partizan advisers
must and will rest the responsibility. Xow
these are the facts, and falsehood howeve
cunningly devised, or bodly asserted, will
not conceal them, or weaken their influence
with men who honestly desire the vfcdiea
tiou r ie xmh, and the triumph ot the
JID1L1AL. LU.Vt.MlU.S-J FEW
FACTS r'UJJ THE COJNSIDERA'llOX
OF CANDID VOTERS.
It is but proper that the people consid
the question ol Judicial Conventions. Much
discussion has taken place in the last few
weeks upon this buojuct. Some are. op
posed to, and some are in lavor of party
conventions. Some have sought to make
capital for certain candidates, because they
are not the candidates of any convention.
A reference to the history of partizan
Judicial Conventions in this State may be
of importance to a proper solution of the
question. By reference to that history wo
may ascertain wincii party is to ue cen
sured, if censure should be attached, for
the introduction of politics into the Judi
cial elections of this state.
The Hon. John I). Caton, Chief Justice,
resigned his place on the Supreme Rench of
this State, on the 9th day of January, 1804.
Judge Eaton was a Democrat. Oil the Uth
day of tho same month Governor Yates ap
pointed the Hon. Corydon Reckwith, of
Chicago, to fill the vacancy occasioned by
the resignation of Judge Caton. Judge
Reckwith was, at the time, a leading
war Democrat, and stood in the very
front ranks of his profession. Republicans
severely censured Gov. Yates tor appointing
a Democrat to fill the vacancy, notwith
standing Judge Reckwith 8 high qualifica
tions and unquestioned loyalty.
In the spring of 1804 the Republicans of
the Northern Grand Division called a con
vention to nominate a candidate for that
division for the Supreme Court. The can
idates before that convention were the Hon.
Charles B. Lawrence, and Judge Reckwith.
Judge Lawerence, a straight Republican,
was chosen as the candidate of the con
vention and was elected by the Republi
cans of his grand division at the June elec
tion, 1864, and took his seat upou the Su
preme Bench at the November term 18C4.
It is but fair to Judge Lawrence to say
that lie made an able.fearless and impartial
Judge. In 1873 Judge Lawrence was again
chosen as the Republican candidate in the
Fifth District. (The Supreme Court in the
mean timo having been reorganized and
the number of Judges incrensed from three
to seven.) The Hon. Alfred M. Craig was
nominated by the Granger party uad de
feated Judge Lawrence at the June election
of that year.
In Juno 18U7 tho term of the Hon. Pink
ncy 11. Walker expired, and in tho spring
ot that year the Republicans of the Central
Gruml division called a convention to uom
itittte a candidate to succeed him upon the
Supreme bench, and placed in nomination
the Hen. Charles Emerson, of Decatur -

except that he was a Democrat. But the
old tmo and tried Judge was retained.
Inl873Ju'1fc' McAllister resigned his
place on the Supremo Bench and tho Re
publicans supposing that they had tho
power in their own hands, called a conven
tion and nominated tho Hon. narvey B.
Hurd as the Republican candidate to fill the
vacancy. Mr. Hurd was not hold in high es
teem as a lawyer and jurist, and was de
feated by the Hon. T.Tyle Dickey. And

don were nominated by Republican con
ventions in their respective districts, and
elected by the Republicans -tho politics of
the candidates being the controlling con
Thus it will be seen that the Republicans
were tho first to introduce the convention
system into the Supreme judicial elections,
and they have maintained it and used it in
every instance where they had a reasonable
chance of making a nomination success
The Republicans in the circuits in the
northern and central portions ot the state,
in the circuits where they have clear ma
jorities, rigidly adhcro to the convention
system and almost invariably nominate
candidates for the circuit bench. It is
only in the doubtful and Democratic dis
tricts and circuits that they attempt to de
precate nominating conventions.
Now let us come a little nearer home and
see who, if any one, is responsible for intro
ducing politics into the judicial elections
in this district and circuit. When Judge
Breese died a Republican Governor ap
pointed his successor. Judge Breese had
been a Democrat, elected from a Demo
cratic district, without nomination, and
twice almost by acclamation. There were
many well qualified Democrats in the
district to take his place
but the Governor said l'No; the
successor to Breese must be a Republican,
and Judge Baker,of this city, was appoint
not because ho was better qualified than
Judge Mulkey and many other Democratic
lawyers and Judges tha't we might name in
thi9 district, but because Judge Baker was
a Ri publican. And then a successor had
to be appointed to take Judge Baker
place. The best qualified men in this cir
cuit to fill tho circuit judgeship were on
the Democratic side, but the Governor said
'No; none but a Republican can succeed
Baker,'' and O. A. Harker was chosen, not
on account of his qualifications, Lut on ac
count of his politics.
At the Republican congressional conven
tion at Carbondale that nominated Mr.
Thomas for congress tho first political ju
dicial committee for this circuit was formed
to take charge of this judicial campaign,
in the intot of tlm Renublirn" purty.
The Democratic convention at Jonesboro
that nominated Judge Allen, picked up the
gauntlet thus thrown down by the Repub
licans and nominated a Democratic judicial
committee. The Republican committee met
in Cairo in secret to consult as to the course
to pursue. Some of the committee were
for a convention others opposed; but it w.'.s
currently reported tint the understanding
was that matters should be allowed to go
on as they were, but that means should be
taken to draw off all Republican candidates
but three; and subsequent events have
proven this to be correct.
The Democratic committee met and is
sued a call for a convention, that gave a
full representation to each county. The
convention met in Cairo, aud with open
doors to all,procecded to nominate its candi
dates three as worthy and well qualified
gentlemen as could be placed upon a Judi
cial ticket in Southern Illinois. On the
same day the Republican Judicial Com
mittee met in Cairo in private caucus, with
closed doors, and withdrew all Republican
candidates but three, naming the three that
should run; and the three Republicans now
on the track aro the nominees of the Re
publican Judicial Committee a secret con
clave, not an open convention.
Wo submit to a candid voting population
as to which of the parties have acted tho
most manly in putting a ticket before the
The Republicans have or will put a ticket
in the field in every circuit in the State,
where they have a clear majority or a reas
onable hope of electing their ticket and
yet they complain that the Democrats in
this Supreme Judicial district and circuit
have nominated tickets. We submit to the
candid voters of this district and circuit
whether such a complaint is well founded.
