Th» Republican Convention. —The chairman
of the Republican State Executive committee h/»s
called the State Convention of that party to meet
at Georgetown, Sussex county, on Tuesday, July
28th.
This proceeding is not altogether acceptable to
many of lire i*acty. The Commercial is somewhat
indignant and'intimates that Mr. Pickels exceeds
Iis authority. It thinks he ought to have called
the Xxeeutive committee together and permitted
its members to fix upon the day for the conven
tion. The Breakwater Light, Milford News and
Every Evening are, also, adverse to holding the
convention at that time. It is generally thought
that this call was made in deference to the wishes
of the Jump men.
Correspondence. —In answer to our invitation
of Inst week a communication each from Messers.
Wra. Dean, ami S. Townsend appears in tbis
wsne, on the question of nominating our candi
dates for the I.egislat
ballot. Mr. Townsend favors and Mr. Dean op
poses if. Both letters are interesting and may
Hfwaktn some interest in this matter. Wc hope
to hear from others on the subject, but
entreat our friends to remember that our space
is limited, aud to make their articles as short as
they enn.
We also publish an interesting letter from a
Wilmington Democrat on the Gubernatorial
question.

The Governorship.
WiutuiGToN, July 7, 1874.
Edward Reynolds , Enq. —As we near the cus
tomary period for holding our State Convention,
the interest of our people here in the judicious se
lection of the proper candidates continues to
steadily increase. Of course, there is the usual
difference of opinions and preferences on the sub
ject. All agree, however, that New Castle coun
ty is entitled to either the Governor or the Rep
resentative in Congress ; and all would prefer
that we should have the Governor, if a candidate
could be found in our county, whom all would
w;etcoioe with one consent us the right man for
the right place.
Un the other hand, it is strongly urged that
unless we can find a nominee upon whom all
sections of our county will cheerfully unite, it
will be most judicious to select a candidate from
Kent county for Governor |aud from New Castle
couaty for Representative in Congress. Those
who urge the latter view, anci they are very nu
merous, argue that the representative in the law
making branch of government is more truly and
logically related to our much discussed principle
of "Increase of representation" than is the Gov
ernor, who has neither h vote nor a veto upon
legislation. And hence, that to be consistent
we should take the Representative instead of the
Governor; especially if we are unable to offer a
New Castle county candidate for Governor who
would be accepted with genuine nnd genera! sat
tiction by ail sections ot our county and party.
If such a candidate can be found U would un
doubtedly be wisest to select the Governor fr
New Castle county and the Representative from
Sussex ; for, those who best comprehend our po
litical situation clearly foresee that New Castle
and Sussex counties are to be the battle fields of
the approaching campaign, and that one or the
other will be tbe key to the situation. It is
therefore necessary to have for our standard
bearers one at least, und both if possible, of our
candidates from these counties.
Among all fhe New Castle county candidates
now mentioned by our people here for Governor
none stands in higher favor than John P. Coch
ran, Esq., of your Hundred. Of late, since tbe
withdraw« 1 of one of our most favored citizens,
his popularity in Wilmington has been rapidly
on the increase. Indeed, many of our best in
formed politicians already begin to look upon
him as the coming nominee.
As a large landholder and active farmer of
signal ability and success: as a man of a high
order of intelligesce and business capacity, of
sterling integrity and independence of character,
and as a thoroughly earnest, practical man, Mr.
Cochritu is hailed as a real representative of our
true Delaware yeomanrv, and would not fail to
be m very popular aud acceptable nominee to
New Castle county and the whole State.
As our chief magistrate, he would certainly
fill the office with a dignity and ability which
would be creditable alike to the party which
nominated him and to the people of
who elected him. With John P. Cochran of New
Castle county us our nominee for Governor, and
John 11. Paynter, Esq., of Sussex,
to* Congress, should «a not be sure of a vigor
ous nnd enthusiastic campaign and a certain suc
cess? Thev'ffote, if Mr. Cochran's neighbors of
tit. Georges Hundred can draw him forth from

Mit. Editor :-Bt an editorial in your paper of
Ute 3d inst. 1 notice you invite your readers to
occupy a space in your columns, (riving tlieir
> on the proposed amendment of the rules
governing the llemocratic part» of New Castle
county, in reference to changing the nomination
of candidates for Representative» and I.evy Court
commissioners from the present method of nomi
noting hv delegates in county Convention to a
direet vote of the party, the same wav as we
now nominate sheriff and coroner. Under the
existing method of electing our Representatives
and Levy Court commissioners, by general '
county ticket, it does appear to me that the
present method of nominating the candidate hv '
Couuty Convention will give a much better clas's
of candidates than a direct vote of the party,
taken at tl.e nomination election held for the
purpose of nominating sheriff and coroner. 1
know it has been said that our Conventions are
pneked with delegates opposed to a majority of
the party. If .o it is the fault of those persons
who care so little about the mutter that they
stay at home instead of attending to their duty
ns good citizens; too indolent to attend to then,
when they have an equal opportunity of attend
ing, they should not énd fault with tl.e manner
in which the duty has been performed hv those
persons who are 'willing, and do give the matter
their attention. 1 have never yet found one of
«tanna a .ne ne n.l. f 1 C. 1. .Ue .anann.a *
those persons who find fault with the present
system who can point out a single instance
where our party nominations have been of an

popular persons as cajid, da, es t ,s much caster ,

desirous to become a candidate than to pel the

for ,n the latter there ,s no dividual in lernst at |
stake, the same as there arc when persons arc
ambitious to become candidates, it is at such ,,
times, and by such persons, that the work of
managing, packing and intriguing Is done if
the system is changed to a direct vote of the par

NOMINATING BY BALLOT.
LETT Kit FROM WILLIAM DEAN.
while the man of ability and respectability hav
ing all the requisite qualifications to make n good
officer will not condescend to any such low means
to acquire tbe nomination and our peopl
our party are thereby deprived of the advantage
that men of better character would give to the
party. Have we not had examples enough in
the persons who have been aspirants for the of
fice of Sheriff and coroner ? Have not several of
those persons spent fortunes in the way above
mentioned and ruined themselves financially nnd
morally in their efforts.!in the
secure tbe nomination?
those persons who have been successful in secur
ing both the nomination aud election acquired
habits, while canvassing for nomination, that
have stayed with them through the balance of

be right that in any Hundred

Democratic oounty ticket an objectionable per
son us a candidate, for the simple reason that he
had received the highest number of votes in his
Hundred, when there w
other candidates for the same office i
there no doubt would be under the pro
posed system of the tm
stead of the office seeking the man.
the proposed system every man supposes him
self io have an equal right to fill any office thal
hc can get nominated for, regardless of his qual
ifications, or cluiracier, if he can only control, or
exercise an amount of influence over, the people
of his parly, either by persuasion or the liberal
of money to be applied iu any way that will
secure lhe greatest nu:
how they are acquired,
such a system be found
any menus, no matter how degrading, to sec
a nomination, w hile all such persons if it
left to the selection of the five men, elected a
gates from among the party of the Hundred to a
county convention, never would think of bring
ing any but the best men forward to offer
dida'es to the county convention, knowing that
if they offered any unpopular or objectionable
persons they would be rejected by the conven
tion. The * Democratic party of New Castle
comity have had some experience in the opera
tions of the proposed system, while It was in ope
ration on a previous occasion, at which time did
not certain parties Lu one of the Hundreds suc
d in getting nominated, as a candidate for
representative, an unpopular person, which per
' popularity was the means of electing, of
the opposite parties, candidates to the Legisla
ture by which means the peoples choice at that
a United States Senator
elected !
I have heard some ef the friends of this unpopu
lar candidate say he was as good and as respec
table a man as was on the ticket at that time.—
It might so appear to them but it certainly did
not so appear to the mass of the Democratic party
throughout the country. If it had been so he
would have been elected along with the balance
of the ticket. As the September county conven
tion lias to take the matter into consideration

Democratic party of New Caslle county, would it

the county convention, to nominate candidates
for the office of Representatives and Levy Court
Commisoners, to, at the same time, cull the at
tention of the party to the matter of alteration
of the rules, so that if they think proper they
may instruct these delegates how to act ? Should
the county convention decide that our cand
dates should be nominated by a direct vote,
should they not, like the candidate for sheriff and
coroner, be voted for in nomination throughout
the county, as they have to be elected by general
ticket throughout the county? Then the party
could refuse to uouiiuate any but such as would
be acceptable to themselves. For by what right
lia» any twenty men, who might combine for the
purpose it> any Hundred, to foist upon the Dem
ocratic party of this county unpopular or unfit
persons as its candidates? It is said that it is
more Democratic for the party to vote direct for
candidates, and that their rights Are taken from
the people when a convention nominates. Who
will say that each and every naan has not
equal right to say what law shall be enacted to
g overn the people? yet the people do not ussem
le in mass to enact laws. Would we have any
better laws enacted if we did-so assemble than
what we have by our present method of delegat

never would read

sed rules
d those pers
s who attended

meeting should know this, as it will explain some
things that took place there. The persons who
eting will recollect that it
was I who brought this matter of nominating
members of the Legislature and Levy Court be
fore the meeting, and not James Rav, although
John O'Byrne wrote a resolution and offered it
to me, I was speaking aud had not time to look
at it. He then went over to Mr. Ray, and he
banded it in. It was I, however, who brought
tins matter up, nnd when certain persons s
! the meeting favored my views, Mr. George Or
our late chairman of the county meeting,nnd the
very man who, ns chairman, called this meeting
on Saturday, June 6th, spoke up nnd
could not adopt the ballot system until the rules
of the Democratic parly were amended, and that
without rules the party could not get along. I
told him that 1 never regarded those cursed rules;
that the party got along better before they were
made. The meeting generally being ignorant of
the facts and the wire-workers who had the rules
not being kind enough to read them, it was fi
lly thought best to appoint a committee of
each Hundred to take this matter into con
d report. Tbe committee have met.
of the members, and we passed
composed that late
id we
sidération
I w:
lution in favor of nominations by ballot; and up
to tbe time of that meeting of the committee 1
hud not read those celebrated rules, but I bave
since. I went into Mr. C. P. Johnson's office
d talked with him about them, and he told
that he had been frequently requested to publish
suid rules; that hc would not do it; that they
had been so repeatedly broken they wero of
account; that the Democratic party got along
much better before said rules were
Tliis perfectly agreed with mj' idea
read the first rule, what do you suppose it said?
Why, "ou the first Saturday in June, candidates
for sheriff'and coroner should be nominated by
ballot. 1 ' Now, there was Mr. George Gray, a
comparatively young man whom I think a great
deal of, nnd in no wise blame him for old politi
cal troubles iu the Democratic patty, for he was
too young then to take part. Well, at our late
county meeting Mr. Gray was, as I before stated,
defending the rules aud their observance, wi
he, as chairman, lmd trampled on the very first
rule by calling a county meeting on the day these
iufumouB rules said the sheriff 's nomination
should take place. Therefore,
for sheriff and coroner, according to the first rule,
is not biuding or of any account. There must
either be a now nomination or the rule must be
considered of no accouut ; and if one rule, and
the first one, is of no account, is the third any
more binding, that we must first take the trou
ble to appoint delegates to recommend its ex
punging? Then again, there is another rule
that says Wilmington shall have five delegates,
so she cannot have ten until that rule is expung
ed ; and if we can expunge one, as we have done
in the nomination for sheriff and coroner, cannot
do it in all other cases? I, therefore, recom
mend that John P. Cochran, Esq., call a county
meeting early in August, so the party can dis
pose of these matters, and save running two leg
islative and two levy court tickets this Fall. For
I here state, not as u threat but us u right of one
white Democrat who believes every white Demo
cratic voter, either rich or poor, is entitled to
equal political rights, that if a sot ot office hold
ers', expectants, rings or packers attempt to stifle
the voice of the people this Fall by nominating
candidates for the Legislature or Levy Court by
delegates, 1 will make an appeal to the white
Democratic masses of this county to assert their
hood by making nominations by ballot.—
Then, if these ring packers, aud cliquesters will
force an issue with two tickets, let them take the
consequences. Longer torbeurance with these
gentry has ceased to be a virtue in the Demo
cratic white masses of this county.
