Democratic State Convention.
i The West Virginia Democratic Con
' vention met at tlie city of Wheeling
on Wednesday last, and concluded its
labors a short while after midnight of
Thursday night. It was the largest
representative gathering ever as
sembled in this State, consisting of
thirteen hundred delegates, repre
senting every county in West Vir
ginia, (for the lirst time,) and among
itt members were nearly all the lead
ing public men of the State. Hon.
Jno. lJlair Iloge was made temporary
Chairman, and J. Bernard Peyton
Clerk. The State Executive Com
mittee was formed of the following
Joseph S. Miller, of Ohio county;
Chas. li. Oldman, of Marshall; Rob't
S. Blair of Ritchie; D. S. Leonard,
of Wood; V. S. Armstrong, of Jack
son; H.T.Vinson, Of Wayne; B. II.
Oxley, of Lincoln; John C. Mont
gomery, of Fayette : 1). C. Gallaher,
of Kanawha; James K. Smith, of Mo
nongalia; Thomas B. Davis, of Min
eral ; and J. C. Holmes, of Jefferson.
Notwithstanding the tacit agree
ment that local dissensions should be
ignored, the report of the Committee
on Permanent Organization named
Geo. II. Moffett, editor of the Wheel
ing Register and an antagonist of the
State administration, for permanent
chairman, and this precipitated a hit
ter tight, in which Gov. Jackson, Hon.
I). B. Lucas, Hon. Jno. J. Davis and
others participated in opposition to
the confirmation of the report, and
Senator ICenna, Chairman Ilenshaw
of the Committee and others in its
favor. The Convention finally, amid
great confusion, recommitted the re
port and took a recess until Thursday
On Thursday Judge John Brannon,
of Lewis county, was recommended
and chosen Permanent Chairman, and
the Convention proceeded without
further break to the conclusion of its!
work. The following preamble and
resolutions were adopted without dis
Whereas, The Democratic party of West
Virginia, in convention assembled in the city of ,
Charleston, has so recently declared its prin
ciples and policy upon all matters of State in

should be any further declaration of its views
upon any of these questions : aud whereas the
Democratic party of the United States in the
city of Chicago has fully met the highest wants
and aspirations of tlie people in a comprehen

all questions of a national character, leaving
nothing to be done by the Democracy of this

would call a level headed proposition.
If we coukl have a Dan Lucas from
each county of the State in the legis

would not be left in their present con

Democracy of Jefferson and the sac

Canvassing for " Votes and
When iord Macaulay was a. can
didate for re-election to the House of
Commons, to represent the wealthy
manufacturing corporation of Leeds,
lie took occasion in a letter to a friend,
to express his opinion of a practice
much too common in modern political
methods, and uttered words of wis
dom which it would be well for our
electors to read and weigh, and es
pecially when about to select repre
sentatives to our legislative bodies.
The following extracts should be
read with interest and with profit, par
ticularly by those of our citizens who
so frequently appear in print over
the signature of " Many Voters:"
V The practice of begging for votes is, as it
secius to me. absurd, pernicious, and altogether
at variance with the true principles of repre
sentative government. The suffrage of an elec
tor ought not to be asked, or to be given, as a i
^fcrsonal favor. It is as much' for the interest
of constituents to choose well as it can be for
the interest of a candidate to be chosen. To
request an honest man to vote according to his
conscience is superlinous. To request him to
vote against his conscience is an insult. The
practice of canvassing is quite reasonable un
der a system in which men are sent to Par
liament. to serve View selves. It is the height of
absurdity under a system under which men are
sent to Parliament to serve the public. * * *
I trust that the great and intelligent body of the
people will see that a man who surrenders his
vote to causes and supplications, forgets his
duty as much as if he sold it for a bank-note.
I hope to sec the day "when an Englishman will
think it as great an affront to be courted and
fawned upon in his capacity of elector as in his
capacity of juryman. He would be shocked
at the thought of finding an unjust verdict be
cause the plaintiff or defendant had been vo*y
civil and pressing; and, if he would reflect.he
would. I think, be equally shocked at the
thought of voting for a candidate for whose
public character he felt no esteem, merely be
cause that candidate had called upon him, and
begged very hard, and shaken hands verv
warmly." * ******
?? I wish to add a few words touching a ques
tion which has lately been much canvassed ; I
mean the question of pledges. * * * * *
I think it. at this conjuncture, my duty to de
clare that I will give no pfalgrs. I will not bind
myself to make or to support any particular
motion. * * * * The great beauty of the
representative system is. that it unites* the ad
vantages of pop'ular control with the advan
tages arising from a division of labor. * * *
In politics, as well as every other department
in life, the public ought to have means of check
ing those who serve it. If a man finds that he
derives no benefit from the prescription of his
physician, lie calls in another. If his shoes do
not lit niin, he changes his shoemaker. But
when he has called in a physician of whom he
hears a good report, it would be absurd in him
to tie down the physician to order particular
pills and particular draughts. While lie con
tinues to be the customer of a shoemaker, it
would be absurd in him to sit by and note every
motion of that shoemaker's hand. And in the
same manner. it would, I think, be absurd in
liim to require positive pledges, and to exact
daily and hourly obedience from his represen
tative. My Opinion is that electors onirht at
lirst to tiioosc cauttouxly ; then to confide liber
ally : and. when the time for which they have
selected their member has expired, to review
his conduct equitably, and to pronouuee of the
whole taken together."
How often do we hear from voters
such expressions as, "I intend to
support A 011 personal grbunds," or
I shall vote for B because I feel un
der obligations lo liiin," or "I can't
vote against C, we have been warm
friends for years and it would never
do." And on the other hand, "I
can't support so and so because I
don't know how he stands oil the
prohibition question," or " he. won't
pledge himself not to vote for Cam
den for Senator, &e." To all such,
and to our intelligent, honest, but too
often thoughtless people generally,
we commend the above sentiments
and the reasons for holding them.
Mr. Haines:?I was very much
pleased to read in your last issue,
that Mr. D. 15. Lucas had consented
to serve the people in the Legislature
of the State if they should desire it.
In my opinion, all persons who, when
they make choice of a delegate to rep
resent them in our Legislature, are
not governed l>y love, favor or affec
tion, or hate or other considerations,
but look only to the worth and qual
ifications of him who seeks their suf
frages, should rejoice that an oppor
tunity is presented of having a man
to represent them who is thoroughly
familiar with all the many and grave
questions that must come under the
consideration of the next Legislature,
and a man, too, who has the ability,
the courage, and the industry to dis
charge the duties of any position in
which he 111:13' ',e placed. Happy
would the State be if her best men
were selected to make her laws and
govern her policy; and proud might
we feel to hail from West Virginia if
this matter of selecting delegates was
properly attended to. What gave to
old Virginia her fame? What made
her sons so proud of the name but the
putting forward of her ablest men at
all times to represent them, at home
and abroad? Jefferson county, by
virtue of her wealth, lier intelligence,
her diversified interests, her towns,
country, mechanical and commercial
interests, should always have at least
one first-class representative in her
legislative halls. Such a man is equal
to a legion of those who are inex
perienced in matters of law making,
and without such, legislation would
be a farce and confusion worse con
founded. If I were one or either of
the worthy aspirants to a seat in the
Legislature, I would delight in the
prospect of having Mr. Lucas as a
colleague. At all events, let the peo
ple select Mr. Lucas from a regard
to their own interests alone, and the
other candidate from favor if they
like. * * *
