wrote Mr. Helbert, asking that the
M'liatorial contest be decided liy
primary election. Mr, fSeibert ans
wered that he didn't approve of tho
idea. Then Mr. Glenn let go at Mr.
8eilxrt as follows:
"Your letter sandbagging there

ulvh.ioii the matter, suying that

nomination of a senator in congress,'
ntc.yoii certainly do all in your
power to settle the matter your own
way, and therein do you grently ex
ired the proprieties of your position,
to say tlie least. Your efforts to run
the committee to suit your own Ideas
have gone far cuottgli. You inter
fered when the Judgment ot the com
mittee was about' to be passed In
favor of the Bhunuoh siitc ot the
Jackson county affair, mid caused
the decision to go tho other way.
This was wrong, as the supreme
imirt afterward proved, by decidihg
that regularity wits on the side of
the Shannon faction. Tho result of
this unwarranted interference of
yours was that the entire legislative,
senatorial and county ticket went
down to defeat in Jackson county at
the lust election, Mr. Crowhcrd only
pulling through because of his re
markable Hrsoual popularity, and
our chances there are far from good
in the future,
"You are continually running tho
i ominitteo by having n subcom
mittee appointed to perform what
are properly tho functions of the en
tire committee, and then, the sub
committee never meeting, you usurp
its duties yourself. Tills is the
method you pursued in having the
accounts of the committee audited
titter the Inst campaign, the subcom
mittee of three which you appointed
for that purpose having delegated
the task to one man who simply said
he would do it. So far aa I know ho

Wondering in consequence if some ot
the chunres made recently in refer

not well founded.

Mr. Clark. He put nn end to you

n public speech in 1800 that if he

play even, but you had better go
slow in trying to use the committee;

can column. You had better take
warning. Dosses have been dethron
ed before now and may be aoain.
"Mr. Clark has effectually explod
ed the objection to a state primary
on uccouut of its cost. He is a poor
man, but he guarantee to pay his
part of the necessary expense. What
obiectlam remains? Are you afraid
to trust tho peoplo? If soj they may
iu turn become afraid to trust you.
"It is a cardinal principle of Demo
cracy that the voice of the people
should rule. It is self-evident that
the closer you get to the people the
better ytiu can hear their voice. For
this reason I am iu favor of a pri
mary in every county of the state on
the same day, the gentleman receiv
ing the highest numberof Votes to be

United States senate. I am also in
favor of following this plan hi the
future to the extent of nominating

It is evident that the only Way to
cause tlie tlVerage mnn to realize that
lie is a part ot, and lias a voice in

Certainly the producers of wealth
