Surveyor's Office, July, 2, 2886.
lion. Geo. W. McOranie, Monroe, La.
Dear Sir:-My attention has just
this moment been called to the
following item clipped from the
,"Col. George W. McCranle, of Mon
roe, has written an open letter to Col.
C. H. Moore, chairman of the Boat
ner executive committee, asking when
his committee is to meet, and where."
I am very sorry not to have seen
"your open letter" so that I could
have answered it fully and squarely.
I have been extremely anxious to
take all necessary steps to bring about
harmony and brotherly feeling ,withl
our ranks. For 2 days I havebeen enm
gaged constantly in writing to mem,
bers of the committee, of which I am
chairman, and will act as soon as I
from them, and ascertain their
es and wishes.
Iiad hoped the call for the meet
lin of the two committees could
have been mutual between Mr. Cran
dall and myself, for reasons which I
have set forth to my committee, this
could not be done, Though
this has not been done, I have such
great confidence in the love of all
classes for our party, that I am sure
the people will see that the aspirations
of no particular man, nor the opposi
tion of any class shall produce farther
discord, or create factions.
If you will kindly furnish me with
a copy of the open letter referred to, I
will attempt to answer.
Very respectfully and truly yours,
C. H. MooRE.

ferred to by Col. Moore.-ED. TEL.]

Dear Sir-Mr. A. W. Crandall, I no
tice, bah called a meeting of his com
mittee to be held at Rayville, July 2.
What action do you, as chairman of
your committee propose to take? If
suggestions are in order, I would sugi
gest that you call a meeting of your
committee for the same time and
place. The reasons for this are obs
vious. It is highly desirable that all
dissensions in the party should be.
healed before the congressional cam.
paign opens, and it appears to me
that this can be accomplished only by
the united action of the two commits
tees. It will not be sufficient for your
committee to remain silent. If you
could guarantee that your committee
would meet soon afterwards and can
dorse the action of July 2d, that
would be a partial solution of the
difficulty, but by no means so satis.

The matter deeply interests all who
have at heart the future good of the
party and I hope will meet earnest
consideration at your hands.
An early reply would grealy oblige,
