VOL. XX. KNOXVILIVE, IOWA, TITUTi^DAY, JULY 1, 1875. NO. 4.
Marnhalltown races July ltrt, 2(1,
an) 3d. $2,600 iu premiums are
olfered for trotting paciug and run
ning.
At 8o'cl(x k the jury retired to
fts usual rootttiing ilaee, and at 10
o'clock the court house was locked
for the night." This is getting to be
the regular nightly eong of tiie tele-
A terrible raiu and hailstorm did
great damage in Northeastern
Iowa la«t Thursday night. The JReg
ifler says A stream seven feet in
dupth ran through the principal
street in Deeorah, carrying with It
fifty houses and tearing up three
miles of sidewalk and feucee.
Gov. Stone was a .spectator in the
nameless convention at Des Moines
last week, and was called upon by
vote of the convention to speak.
Col. Montgomery was appointed by
the Chair to conduct the Ex-Gover
nor to tha rostrum, but William de
clined to occupy the convention's
time.
Sain. Evans tells the readers of
his Ottuiuwa Democrat that iu mov
ing in tho nameless convention to call
the party Democratic" Jae "iiUih
•fully endeavored to oorreetly repre
sent the sentiments of the Democra
cy of Wappelo county and iAxtruc
(ions of the caucus of delegate* of
the Sixth Congressional District,
The Old World, too as well as Otrr
own is being swept with storms and
rocked with tornadoes. Our dis
patches this morning tell of A most
terrible storm, causing great loss of
lite and property 2u one of the older
cities. Five hundred jeople are
missing, and one hundred are known
to have lost their lives.
The Tweedocrats say nothing
in their platform this year far the
comfort of the farmer aud nothing
about cheap transportation. They
give utterance to no word of
pain or sympathy for the soldier but
wwp over their Southern friends.
They utter not a word about" the
law regulating railroads, but propose
to repeal that other law which reg
ulates the sale ot their beloved
whiskey. They care nothing for the
echool laws and tax laws, but are
opposed to Sunday laws and the
National ban king law.
McCormack reiterates his falsehood
pointed out by the JOURNAL last
week and supplements it with seve
ral others no less malicious. He is
more careless of tho truth than
ever since his return from the
free whiskey convention. He has
stumbled upon one honest deed,
however this week in heading his
State ticket Democratic,'.' thus fol
lowing the lead of the Knoknk
Conntttulion, Dubuquo Herald and
Ottumwa Democrat, and carrying
out the pre-arranged programme
laid down by the Bourbons who in
vited the Anti-monopolists to the
feast at Des Moines, there giving
them but a crumb, and then coming
home and insulting them by tolling
them that the crumb was Democrat
ic and they aro Democrats, having
partaken at the feast. It is honest
in one sense to call the ticket and
the party Democratic, because they
aro such but the Antics cannot
perceive any large amount of honesty
in tho trick by which they have
heeu cold out to Democracy.
W1ien Sam Evans, in' the wlmt
Is-It" convention at les Moines last
week, repuested all to bold up their
hands who would not aecept a feder
al otTice if tendered by a democratic
administration, only six or eight of
the four hundred delegates "held up.'
This would Indicate that ubout 1)8
out of every 100 in the convention
were Democratic enough to accept
office by Democratic appointment,
though they were too "cowardly,"
JLS
Parrott told them, to call their
platform nnd party Democratic.
They claim to be a farmers' party—
a reform party—opposed to office
seekers and jjoliticians—but 2 in
every 100 of their State delegates

The Davenport Democrat has oj
late been making a terrible how{
against Ex-Gov. Kirk wood, and all
the smaller Dan*wat# iu the Stato
echo the snarl. The Dubuque Timm
answers the charge thus:
The Davenport Ihmoerat thinks II
is making a rtroug point against
Hon. Samuel J: Kirk wood because
the latter, when ebrteel to till the
unexpired term of James Harlan itt
the L. S. Senate, received pay back
to the time Mr. llarlan resigned—
the facts being simply these
Mr. Harlan'* resignation took effect

ted to tho Senate on the l.jth of Jan
uary, ltMW}. ami took his seat a few
days thereafter, about a month after
Congress convened. According to
the universal rule, serving out an
unexpired term, he was allowed tho
salary of the otlioe from the date of
the resignation of hit predecessor.
This has been the custom, we Relieve
from the foundation of the gov.*ru

recent instance was the ca*e f»f thai

New York, the leader of tiie Dem
ocrats in the House of lvepr?»t*ota
lives, and a man for whom the Dav

admiration. Mr. Cox was elected to
till the unexpired term of the Hon.
James Brooks, and though elected
some mouths after the detttk of Mr,
Brooks, received the salur*' of the
otlice lor the period dated loi»i tint
death of his predecessor. The luw
fixes an amiuul salary to the (.Itlcs
of Senator and Bepresenlstive iu
