from tka time wa firit took tn active
part ID the politic of our country, we
bare acted with tbe Democrats party,
.tka peKoy rvpraUd by it auifiog oar
Ideaa of jutticttnd national poiicj better
than any other in eziatence. In county
elections, at well ns atate and national,
hare we identified ourself with the party,
and to day feel conscious that we are in
the right. Though not strictly Demo
cratic, in the old sense of the term, the
tickete, national, state and county, which
itand at the bead ef our columns, will,
we believe, with few exceptions, bo sup
ported by the Democracy of Lincoln
county. Tho characters of the men com
posing the national and state tickets have
been thoroughly canvassed, and all our
readers have probably decided who they
will vote for; and they have no doubt
also made up their minds as to how tbey
will act in regard to county officers, but,
neverthleas, a mention of the names and
tharactera of the men composing the
Democratic neminations 'of this county
may not be amiss.
First on the ticket comes Col. E. B.
Hull, for Representative, who is probably
known to most of our citizens. He is a
gentleman of considerable experience, and
although he does not pride himself on
his oratorial abilities, will make us a
practical and working representative.
The I ime has almost passed away when
the people consider it their duty to send
men to the legislature for the purpcie of
making buncombe speeches and wasting
that timo in windy rhetoric which should
bo spent in work. Hull is tho man to
For county court justice we have Mr
Henry T. Mudd, one of tht best business
men rf the county, and ono whose char
acter is above reproach. All who have
business with the county court know the
nccsssity ol having judges who can dis
patch businoss rapidly and accurately,
and whose actions will be regulated by a
ecaso of fairness and justice to all sec
tions. Such an one we believe the Dem
ocratic party has nominated in the per
son of Henry T. Mudd.
W. W. Shaw, the nominee for collector,
stands high among the very best of our
citizens, and once filled the office of
county judgo in a satisfactory manner.
His business qualifications are such as
will make bim an excellent collector, one
of the most important offices of the
county. We all know that where the
taxes are ctoely oolltclod, and where
there are few delinquents, the burden
falls lighter on the tax payers, sad assess
incnts do not have to bo made proportion
ately high to offset tbe amount that
should be paid by mm who art never
known to pay unless fotced,to. His
character is above reproach, and while
firm, ho i also affable and agreeable in
his dealings with mankind.
For sheriff Col T. M. Carter will cer
tainly poll a very large vote, and be
elected. It would be strange, with his
popularity and social qualititt if he did
not. Ha is a gentleman of noble quali
ties and liberal views, and well qualified
to fill tbo requirement! of tht offico for
whiJh ha atpirss. We prtdict for him
a rousing vota.
Elijah Myers it our candidate for
as te tier, and wa think it would ba im
passible to find a better. He understands
the duties of the office, and having filled
it in a most satisfactory manner for the
patt two years, cannot fail to do so tbe
nsxt term. Mr. Myers )sa gen'.lemaa of
excellent etcial, religious and liberal
qualttiat, and eao of tha best men you

ene of those quietly decisive man which
nothing can swerve frota what he con
ceives to be his duty.
Jonah Creech is the nominee for
public administrator. He is a young
attorney of this place, whose stay among
us has Leea narked by the most exem
plary conduct, and whose attention to
business will make him an excellent
administrator. He is a ccntlemst in
whose hands any estate would be safe,

John Wilson far superintendent of

office, and we believe Mr. Wilicn pos
sesses the qualitiet to make a psod one.
He has been a teacher fur some time, and
has no doubt acquainted himself with
tba dotits of the office.
For county surveyor we have Mr.
John F. Wilson, one of, if not the best
surveyor in the county, and -one whose
personal character will compare favora
bly with the best of our citizens. With
such men as he and those we have named
before him, tho ticket cannot fail to
receive one of the largest votes ever polled
in Lincoln county, and with this host of
good men in office, we will have no cause
to hang our beads. Let everybody come
out and vote.

even this is not well done. The amount

something te the wealth of the county,
instead of keeping an element of de
struction alive, and impoverishing the
families of hundreds of men.
In 1807, five years ago, there were
3,000 sheep in this county; now there j
are but oue third of that number, ahow-
ing by the Assessor's beeks of this county
alone a clear lo's of 2,400 sheep, worth
more than 850,000. Kvery man who
has owned sheep knows that this great
less has been caused by the dogs killing
sheep, and making it uasafe to keep
them ; and not only unsafe, hut vexatious
to have valuable property destreyed, and
no remedy provided for punishing tbe
depredators or being paid in any way for
the losses caused by the dogs.
A partial remedy for losses is provided
by the "Dog Law" which is to be voted
"FOR" or "against" next Tuesday. Eaoh
deg ia taxed one dollar a year. All the
money collected in this way gets into a

Lloeolo county. The officers of a town
ship are: Supervisor, Clerk. Assessor,
Collector, Overseer of Highways, Uoneta
bla, two or four Justices of the Peace,
who hold effice two or four years.
Each Supervisor is chairman of all
meetings, fence viewer, judge of election,
commissioner of highway, overseer of
the poor, treasurer of the township,
member of tho county court, commis
sioner of bridges; surveyor of roads,
which he must lay out, regulate, keep in

The two Justices are to be elected once
in two years, but another section of ttfe
law says tbey hold office four years, in
which event each township will have four
justices of the peace. The beard of
aduitors is competed of the clerk and
two justices ; and as it is not specified
which two of tha four justices shall be
members of tbe board, some conflict of
authority may arise as to who constitutes
the auditors or township court to decide
upon accounts against the township.

We announce tho name of Hon. Thos.
M. Carroll of Pike county, in this number

We think this a very injudicious, if not
an unworthy, action on the part of Mr.
Carroll, who has claimed to be a good
Democrat, and was nominated and elected
to tbe position to which be now aspires

Tliey cannot now fear that a vote for
Greeley is a v.nu lowering of the Demo
cratic flag to salute recruita that will not
come to us.
From Pennsylvania we have Demo
cratic testimony to the tact that the
frauds of the Administration party
eocured its triumph over Buckalew only
through the indifference of some Desto-
crati and the trcathorous connivance of
others. If they had stood up for their
party nominee tbe accessions from the
Liberals would have made the vote so
closa that tbe frauds of the liartranft
party would have been more apparent,
and our friends would hava struggled on,
confident of carrying tha state in Novem
ber by the aid of the Quaker vote, which
was silent in October.
' In Ohio the Cincinnati Enquirer says
that the state was lost by Democrats

for Greeley in November. An analysis
of the Uotober vota and tbo concurrent
testimony of all well informed Ohioans
prove these 'statements' true.
With information of this tort coming
from all parts of the North and West
art we not justified in faying that tht
situation imptses a grave responsibility
on all voters who claim to be Demo

Party history is full of just such in
stances, and ane never occurred without
giving cause for repentance to those who
were responsible. This country has been
governed by a minority during three ad
ministrations. J he time bat come wben
violence can no longer be uted to over-
sluugh a popular verdict against the
crimes'and corruption of the party which
bas so aluied its power. If that verdict
is not prouounced in November, it will
be the fault of tome who have long
clamored for it. If tin majority is not
once more restored to Us legitimate

the fault -of Democrats whoso poraonal
prejudieet makt them blind at once to
their duty and their opportunity. We
ara led to believe tbat thete will be few
in any ptrt ef the country. The noble
spetchts of Mr. Greeley, tho manly
earnestness of eur Liberal friends, and
the desperate tkiftt of tht cntmy have all
contributed to arouse those who slum
bered on their posts in October. They
are rallying in a way that promises te
retrieve their error; but tbe resturation
of a neglected and insulted constitution
can beasiurcd by nothing but the fullest
vote. Only a few darg are left for work,
and ia that time the faith of the Demo
cratic organization must ho redeemed by
