The Republican office seekers of Alex
ander county aro just now as busy as bees
working for their election. We are re
liably informed that one of them takes par
ticular pains to inform all the negroes who
arrived here only a week or two ago that
they have been here since the second day of
October and that therefore they are entitled
to a vote at the presidential election. They
are told to bear the date in mind in order
that when their vote is challenged and they
are asked to make an affidavit as to how
long they have1 been here, they may not
lose their vote by swearing to the trutli.
We have every reason to believe this al
most know it to be true, and give it as a
sample of Republican rascality. The
Democrats should make it their business to
"spot" all the lately imported negroes and
not only challenge their " votes on
election day, but see to it that,
in case they attempt to vote, they are
properly punished and the full measure of
the law is meted out to them. We would
sav at the conclusion that the gentleman
who is now engaged in putting lies into the
mouths of negroes, had better bethink
himself of what he is doing. We are not
over-anxious to throw water upon a drown
ing mouse, but can inform him that his
actions are receiving the disapprobation ol
many of his friends.

The Bulletin and a number of other
newspapers have mentioned my name in
connection with the nomination for con
gress by the Democracy ot this district;
many friends have also requested me to
stan 1 for the nomination.
To all who have mentioned the subject to
me, whether newspaper meu or others, I
have, without exception, replied that I had
made such business engagements that I
could not give such time and attention to
the cauvass, were the nomination given
me, and to the duties ol the office, if elect
ed, as would of right be expected and de
manded of me. These statements were
made in all sincerity. They do not appear
to have been so accepted judging from
the recent action of the Democratic conven
tion in Massac county and reports from
other counties showing that the opinion
prevails that I am a candidate for the nom
To those who may be laboring under the
delusion that I am waiting for the office to
seek the man, and will accept the nomina
tion if tendered me without effort m my
part, I wish to mo?t effectually disabuse
their minds of that impression. U I
been a candidate for the nomination
the people of this district would have seen
me arouud .seeking it in -a very energetic
and industrious manner. My experience
aud observation has taught me that one
succeeds but poorly without efl'ort on his
While I am utnler many obligations to
my friends throughout . the district for
their unsolicited efforts in my behalf, aud
assuring them that the interest they have
taken in conferring political honors on me
are fully appreciated, I ryust aain stale
to tiicm, aud to all others, that, fur the rea.

or permit my friends to seek for me the

MES OK THE DEMOCRATIC COUNTY COS
The Democratic county convention of
Alexander county, meets at tho court
house, in this city, to-day, at two o'clock
p.m. The Democratic conventions so far
held in other counties of tho stato and, in
fact, all over tho country, have been free
from the usual bitter dissensions and
marked by unity of thought and wise ac
tion. This change in the temper of tho
party signifies that one ot the chief causes
of past defeats has disappeared, and that in
this campaign, for the first time since 1850
the full strength of the party will
be brought out and victory
once more attend its banners. But what
will contribute still more to our chances of
success, is tho fata! division in the Repbnb
Not since 1800, when Lincoln mid Sew
ard contended for the nomination at Chica-
go, has the Republican party experienced
such convulsions from the ranting aud
deep-rooted differences of opinion of two
opposing factions aud the political trickery
of conspiring politicians. If Tilden was
elected by a fair majority in 187G (and be
certainly was) when the Republican party
was undisturbed by intt rnal disputes and
brought its full power to bear against him
and when the Democratic party had not yet
recovered from an unholy alliance with the
Liberals in 1S72, is it not safe to conclude
that this year, when the state ot the parties
is reversed, we will roll up a Democratic
majority, which no illegal electors, no cor
rupt returning boards, and no partisan elec
toral commissions with their "7 to 8" de
cisions will dare to set aside?
This being the state of
affairs, some Democrats may fail to see
the necessity for absolute harmony and
being led by their natural inclination to
disagree, may not make an effort to contrib
ute to the feeling of concord that should
characterize the convention to-day. These
should stay at home, and allow men of
cool heads and unclouded brains, who rec
ognize the fact that only through strict
party action, can the country at large be
rescued from the vice-like grip ot ir
redeemable, corrupt Republicanism, to
act. If tiie honorable, sensible, firm Dem
ocrats will but arouse themselves from
their stupor, attend the convention en
masse, and allow none of their weaker and
more irritable brethren to make confound
ed asses of themselves it they will but do
their duty, then Alexander county will le
pared the shame of taking the initiatory
step in a disgraceful political squabble,
and being the first to produce discord in
the Democratic ranks of this state. But
while it is true that strict party action will
not fail to elect the best men to the nation
al office, it is otherwise with regard to the
county offices. For, especially since Mr
Gladden, brought his new recruits hers
from the south, most of whom will vote
whether they have a right to do so or not,
the Democrats are in a hopeless minority.
Hence, to nominate county officers in the
convention to-day, even though they lie the
very be-t men in the county, will ensure
certain disastrous Democratic defeat. As
the D :mocrats hope for the nomination of
Grant at Chicago because he is the -easiest
to beat, so some scheming, hypocrical Re-'
publicans of Alexander county ardently
wish the Democratic county nominations
well knowing that then they will have a
clear field, and can, with overwhelming
numbers pounce upon and crush their help
less opponents, and carry the entire county
for themselves. Democrats who have at
heart the interest of the county and party,
who are able to see beyond the veil which
smiling Republicans and treacherous Dem
ocrats have drawn to hide their s'dlish de
signs, will not allow themselves to be in
fluenced by outward pressure, and will
guard the convention against falling Into
the trap that has been so silently set for,
them by come of the leading Republicans
We would urge upon the
convention the necessity ot delecting good
men to represent' the Democracy of this
county fit Springfield.'and of giving them
to understand what they are expected to do.
In view of the fact that Hon. Thos. W.
Halliday, as will bit seen from his commu
nication elsewhere, lias refused to accept a
nomination, we hope that the, convention
will agree upon some other among the nu
merous good Democrats in the district und
instruct tho delegates for him, But as the
best man for governor there needs be no
difference of opinion. He should bo a man
of irreproaclmblo character, whosj record
will not serve us a barrier to his election;

whose honor and ability will insure a wise
and intelligent administration of public af
fairs; whose popularity is not confined to
his own township nor vet to his
own district. Mich a man is
the Hon. John H. Oberly. He stands pre
eminently before the people of the entire
state us the one man best fitted for tho gov
ernorship. He has receleved the instructions
of half a dozen counties: he his been en
dorsed by upwards of three thousand of the
better class of workinginen, who held a
mass meeting in Chicago a shr.rt time ago;
he has the hearty support of the printer's
union and other workinginen'sorganizations.
His work is railroad and warehouse commis
sioner as well as in all other official poi
tions which he has been called upon to fill
has made for him many strung friends in
both parties. Besides all these qualifica
tions he is invincible in debute; he is phys
ically as well as mentally, able to make a
thorough canvass of the state, and his in
born energy has until now saved him from
detent in every canvass that he has under
taken to make. For these reaso ns and
others that might be urged.
we would respect I oily ask toe
convention to act in accordance with the
wishes of the people and the iut tcsN ot the
party by instructing the delegates t" the
Springfield convention to cast their votes
first last and all the time, for Hon. Jno. H.
Oberly for governor of Illinois.
At the present writing the proceedings of
our convention to-day point to the endorse
ment by our couuty of Mr. Win. A. Lemma
lor the state senate. The Democracy of
Jackson county has aire tdy declare I for ,
him and as far as we know or have been I
able to ascertain his endorsement by the 1
Democratic party of Jackson county is uni-
ersally accepted by the Dauiocrats ot that
county as a wise and judicious result.
Mr. Lemma has represented this district
in the legislature for two terms. II 4 was
city judge of the city court ot Carbondale
for tour years. He was twice elected to the
mayoralty of the city of Carbondale (tie
last time without opposition) and four
years ago lie was elected states
attorney of Jackson county and was
the only Democrat who was elected
on tho local ticket at that time. During
Mr. Lemma's entire career as a public ser
vant, not u word was said against him tht
would in any manner call in question his
ability, his honesty, his integrity or his
faithfulness to the various public trusts
that have been committed to his care; and
as a citizen and a lawyer, he has always
maintained the most exemplary character.
We are satisfied, that should the convention
instruct for him to-day, he would be elect
ed and would work for tho interest of our
county as eainestly as for his own.
It is suid thai Judge Green would con
sent to make the race for the senate. In
caso this is true he, of course, has our sup
port for that place and should receive the
instructions to-day. He is man of rate
.;ualillcatioi)s as a lawyer and
legislator, and one to whoso
wise management of political campaigns
in prist years, the Democrats is indebted to
many victories in this district and for tho
present strength of the par'y. Ho is an
unassuming, gentleman, who deserves much
for his labors, but who has usked nothing
He served as senator many years ago, and
is therefore capable of representing our
district in tho senate honorably and
efficiently. More than this we need not
say to our readers all of whom aro person

Upon arriving in your city this evening
on business, I was informed that one Wil
liam A. Lemma (vulgarly called Judge
Lemma he hiving never hel l a higher
judicial position than that of justice of the

uses my name in a very uncomplimentary
I have since seen the article, and injus
tice to myself, propose to answer a few of

a:id proceeds to attribute its authorship to
me, and whije I never saw the paper con
taining the article signed 'Jackson" uu'i;
the evening yet for the purpose of t lis
answer, I will assume the authorship of
tiiat communication, l So far as the private
grievance between Mr. Lemma and myself is
cricera .l, the public have nothing to do
with it. It is time that an action was com
menced against me in the supreme court
based upon an affi livit sworn to Ly sai I
Lemini. and I otily have to say about that
if Mr. L'-mui i had sworn nothing but the
truth that not maliciously concealed mate
rial facts, sail action would never have
been entertained for a moment.
When Mr. Lemmi siys that I even coun

tell the truth. 1

such preteu f .'d D.-tu icrats as Lemma that
he wis defeate 1) is satisfactory to the Dem
ocracy of the district then let them reward
his treason to 1 1 party by nominating him.
I did say to Ju lg; llarker, befoie tli'r
Democracy talk f l of making nomin.itioas
for judge, that I felt kindly toward him,
but when Lemma says that I told Julg.
Haiker or anybody else that I intended to
defeat Judge Crawford if I could, or that I
rejoiced over his defeat, he tells a false
hood. An! now to Mr. Lemm i. He de
nies having frequently bolted Democratic
nominations. I want him to tell the peo
ple if he did uot support S tmuel Miehaclis,
the Republican nominee for treasurer in

was the Democratic nominee. Did you
