SEDALIA, MO., TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 1884.

DEAR GOOD MR. JOHN.
More Shall I reach you Congressional shore ?
Quoth the Democrat crow Never More !
COL. MORE AND THE SEDALIA DEMOCRAT.
AFTER THE CONVEXTIOX 3I0R
"BEFORE THE CONVENTION MORE, EVER
Sedalia Democrat June 14th.
There is not a delegate to the coming
convention that will attempt to deny that
Col- More is in every way qualified and
competent, both by nature and culture, to
fill, with honor, "dignity and credit, the
place which his constituents are ahout to
assign him. Col. More is a staunch demo
crat, always loyal to the parly of his choice
His friends can point with pride to his
unblemished political record and not a man
among his enemies can bring forward and
establish the slightest accusation against
either his public or private life.
Col. More is a gentleman whose sterling
nature would spurn a low, mean action.
His vast wealth has always been freely dis
pensed in the advancement of educational
and commercial interests. His hand and
heart have always besn open in the caus
of charity. In short, Col. More's life has
been noted for the interest he has taken in
the welfare of his fellowmen. The people
can not eet a more suitable representative -
in congress than Col. E. C. More. jj
Sedalia Democrat. July 2Cth.
It has been reported quite frequently
during the past couple of (lays tnai ooi. .c.
C. More, of Bjone county, one of the con
testants in the recent congressional fight,
would be a candidate again two years
hence. The Colonel has the right to run
as often as he pleases, and he may feel en
couraged sufficiently to make the attempt.
But the question would be, where would he
j;et his support? Certainly not from those
who have been his friends in the contest
just closed. And those who might leel in
clined to rally around his standard would
probably hesitate when they reflected on
the treachery with which he betrayed his
warmest friends in the Convention Thurs
day. We are not in this connection ob
jecting to the nomination that was made,
recognizing the right of any man to obtain
a majority if he can. But every fair niind
d man, either friendly or otherwise to the
-111 fPPv5 fnl candidate, cannot help ackljwl-
edging that Col. More's action toward his
"riends was treacherous and inexcusable.

The delegates were then seated according
to their precincis, which caused much dis
order and delay in the business of fully
half an -hour. Frank James was expected
to be present, but up to noon had not ar
rived. A telpj?ate from the countr moved that
a committee be appointed on permanent
organization, but the motion was ruled out

ready to report. There was much caucus
ing among the delegates during the recess
and several attempted to get the recognition
of the chair but none were successful. H.
J. Latshaw's arrival in the hall was the
signal for considerable raillery directed
against his stalwart proportions. Sergeant-at-arms
Conlon had his abilities taxed to
the utmost to keep order, the delegates
seeming intent on having spicesfrom the
various candidates. The commfttee on or
ganization reported that the temporary or

Playing the Harlot.
D?er Park, M1., August 2 About thiry
prominent republicans aud greenbackers of
West Virginia gathered at Deer Park ho
tel here to-day, it is said, at the instance of
Stephen B. Elkins, of the .Republican Na
tional committee, and held a conference
with doors closed and curtains down, which
lasted three hours. Among those present
were Elkins, who presided, Congressman
Goff, Messrs. Maxwell, fusion candidate for
governor of West Virginia, Flick, candi
nate ior Attorney-general, Gibbons, of
Charleston, -Smith, of Berkley Springs,
Stone, of Fairmount, Haymond, of Clarks
burg, Beale, of Wellsburg, Hart, of the
Wheeling Intelligencer, Amington, of the
Grafton Sentinel, Peters, of the Huntington
Eepublican; Powell Farmount, of the Vir
gianian, Darmer Scofield, and others of
Wheeling as well as gentlemen from Point
Pleasant, Austin, Westmore and Hamlin.
The plan of operation and general conduct
of the campaign was decided upon Elkins,
it being understood representing Blaine.
Views of the greenbackers were freely
given and in some instances combated by
republicans, several of whom were among
those who in the state convention opposed
the fusion. Harmony prevailed, however,
throughout, and much good feeling man
ifested over the prospect of liberal contri
butions from the national committee to
aid in the campaign as it progressed. The
belief previls among the gentlemen in at
tendance that Goff will withdraw his ob
jection to becoming a candidate to succeed
himself in congress and that he will run ;
a circumstance which they think will
strengthen the republican national and
fusion state tickets. Succeeding the noon
adjonrnment Elkins entertained the whole
party at Deer Park hotel, where an ele
gant dinner was served, after which came
another session and subsequently a divis
ion into smaller bodies and a general r,e
ries'of caucusses. There W8S a decided
tendency to secrecy as to every
thing except enthusiasm at the prospect
of carrying the state which is open and
confident Mr. Blaine is expected at Elkins
cott3ge, at Deer Park dnring the month
where he will probably meet several of
those who participated iu to-d yJs confer
ence. Prominent democrats among the
guests at Dear Park profess no uneasiness
over the assertions o the Blaine managers
but say that they will capture Steele, and
insist that all the money spent by Elkins,
Jones and others in West Virginia will
leave so much the less to combat with in
other and really doubtful states. Postmas
ter Gresham arrived from the west this af
ternoon and will spend Sunday with his
family who are at the hotel here.

The Greely Expedition.
Portsmouth, N. H., August 2. The
Greely relief squadron leaves for New
The Bear is ordered to Governor's island
where the bodies of the victims of the
Greely expedition will be turned over to
General Hancock this afternoon. The
survivors of the expedition will be put
under the care of the war department rep
sented by Gen. Hazeo.
The survivors will rest quietly here to
day and to-morrow. On Monday the great
demonstration in honor of the return of
Greely will be held. The organization of
the naval division whioh will be landing to
participate in the ceremonses, is completed.
The naval divisions of the parade will con
sist of six sub-Jiviaions, comprising the
naval cadets, naval apprentices, marines
and a brigade fiom the north Atlantic
fleet Besides these divisions the parade
will comprise the military and civil
organizitions, fire companies, municipal
governments of Portsmouth and Newbury
port and state authorities. Monday morn
ing a congratulatory meeting will be held
in Music Hall, at which Secretary Chand
ler is expected to preside. The addresses
will be by Secretary Chandler, Samuel J.
Randall, Senator Hale and perhaps Com
mander Scheley. The programme for
the ceremonies Monday has not yet been
completed by the municipal authorities.
GREELY MEETS HIS FAMILY.
Early this morning Mrs. Greely came
over to the city from Admiral Well's resi
dence and then took her two little daugh
ters who had remained during the night
with their grandmother, at the Rocking
ham house, over to the admiral's to see
their fathir. Major Greely was overcome
with emotion at the sight of his little ones.
At noon Surgeons Gunnell and Head
visited the Constitution to examine into
the physical condition of the survivors of
the Greeley expedition. Gen. Hogan ac
companied the surgeons and at the conclus
ion of the examination the surgeons de
cided the survivors were well enough to be
transfered to the war department to be
cared for ashore. Secretary Chandler
directed the men to be turned over to Gen.
Hogan, who on advice of the surgeons,
directed the survivors to be kept at the
navy yard for hospital treatment for ten
days or a fortnight.
The survivors gently protested against
this, saying they were entirely able to care
for themselves, but General Hazen firmly
Sersisted saying what the department wag
oing was for their own good. The
surgeons gave it as their opinion that
Greely would require great care, his condi
tion beins: rather unfavorble. Major
Greely asked the surgeons to permit him
to take quarters at the Rockingham house
with his family, and a consultation took
phce as to the advisibility of permitting
him to do so, it is likely, however, the
surgeon will yield to Mijor Greely's
wishes, but the surgeons had Ames or
some other surgeon from the fleet to be
assigned to the duty of watching over him,
he is not permitted to talk with visitors,
and reporters are not allowed to interview
him, the object of retaining the suvivors
so long under military surveillance and
medical care is that they may gradually
have their muscles hardened and their
strength made genuine instead of fictitious,
as the surgeons think it is at present.
When the'reporter asked the survivors if
they believed other expeditions would be
sent to the Artie, one and all replied "yes
and we are all ready to go with them and
could start to-morrow if necessary." All
of them look strong and hearty. The re
mains of Sergeant Jewell are now among
the others in the tanks of the Bear, and
will be taken out Friday, when arrange
ments will be made for their delivery to
the brother of the deceased. They will be
treated with military honors. " The re
mains of the other victims will be con
veyed to N8W York.
By courtesy of Secretary Chandler, thg
Alert, Thetis" and Bear were thrown open to
inspection and thousands of curious sight
seers inspected the ships,
