Hon.
J.
R. Grinncll has written a
letter to the Daily of Des
Moines, in which he denies that he
ever promised Horace Greeley the
vote of Iowa for President, and in
effect denies that he did or attempted
any political tneuvering during his
recent visit to Washington. Rut
Mr. Grinncll is still opposed to Pros*
Grant's renomination—"not denying
that he may be nominated," but con
fident that he will fail of election.
Well, Mr. Grinnell has of course the
perfect right to favor whom he pleas
es for the Presidency, and oppose
whom lie pleases but we must say
that, unit ss he can show some good
and substantial reason why Pros't
Grant ought not to be President for
aiother term, he will only injure
himself by trying to turn the voice
of Iowa ag iinst a renomina ion. So
far as we are able tosne, the delegate
from Iowa to the Nati' nal Conven
tion are almost as certain to favor
PITS'T Grant's renomination as they
are to go at all. A ml we are glad of
it. We believe Grant has been one
ofthebe.^t Presidents we ever had
and we earnestly desire to vote
for hi in again. Then if some powl
Iowa man could be taken for Vice
President, of course our Stale pride

a bill to admit "type metal" free

rageous extortion in this matter, n
for the benefit of the Governme
