4'he Democratic Partv, in National Con
VMtion assembled, reposing its trust in
the intelligence, patriotism, and discrimi
nating justice of the people, stands upon
the constitution as the foundation and
limitation of the power of the government,
and the guarantee of the liberties of the
citizen and recognizing the questions of
slavery and secession as having been set
tled for all time to come, by the war or
the voluntary action of the southern states
in constitutional conventions assembled,
and never to be renewed or re-acitated, do,
with the return of peace, demand
1. The immediate restoration of all the
states to their rights in the union under
the Constitution of civil government, and
tho" American people.
2. Amnesty for all past political offen
ces, and the regulation of the elective
franchise in the states by the citizens.
3. The payment of the public debt of
the United States as rapidly as practicable,
—all money drawn from the people by
taxation, except so much as is requisite
for the necessities of the government,
economically administered, being honestly
applied to such payment,—and, when the
obligations of the government do not ex
pressly state upon their face, or the law
under which they were issued does not
provide, that they shall be paid in coin,
they ought, in right and in justice, be
paid in the lawful money of the United
States. (Thunders of applause]
Equal taxation of every species of
property according to its value, including
government bonds and other public secu
rities. [Renewed cheering, and cries of
"Read it again."]
5. One currency for the government
and the people,—the laborer and the office
holder, the pensioner and the soldier, the
producer and tho bondholder. [Great
cheers and cries of "Read it again."]

The Waukon Standard, in response to a

quoting remarks of Andy Johnson when
for the Abolition vote at the time
he contemplated "scooping" the radical
party. The association of the opinions
of Mr. L., "the honest man and martyr,"
with the opinions of one who is denounced
by thope who elfected him to the Vice
Presidency as a thief, a traitor, a drunken

whites, politically, was condemned by
Lincoln, by his whole party at that time,
by all the Northern States at subsequent
elections by the Chicago Convention so

The democrats are so used to defeat in
Iowa, that candidates are not so plenty
among them. The current of public
opinion is so changed, however, that
prominent gentlemen of our party are
willing to "take the chances" of an elec
tion. We regard the chances "fair."—
'Tis gratifying to notice how actively men
are canvussiug public affairs and how in
evitably their reason points to democratic
policy as the only shield against the Xa-
tional, State, Congressional and local leach
es who fatten on the toil-producers
of the country. Wc do not, by any means
yield this District to the opposition. We
believe a vigorous canvass will beat them.
The omens favor it. The palsied condi
tion of the country demands it, and Ac
tivity will bring it. Among the more
prominent names of the Democratic party
are John T. Stoneman, of McGregor, Wm.
R. Mills, J. II. O'Neill, of Dubuque, and
A. G. Case, of Nashua. Either of these

JOHN' is not ambitious we know, but it
would be a labor of love with him to "go

morants can trot out. An acquaintance
of 12 years with him at McGregor, ena
bles us to say, that no Democratic audi
ence or Democratic man will object to his
logic, or the manner of its delivery. The
nomination he will not seek, but if the re
quirements of political truth point to him
as its advocate in the Congressional Can
vass, he will commence work, on demand.
Through the kindness of oar young
friends, Grcgor and Gardner McGregor,
Mr. W. 11. Kinniard and the writer, were fa
vored, on the 4th, with seats in an easy
carriage behind the finest driving pair of
Browns known hereabouts. At 4 A. M.
—early for us—we were on the way. At
Harding's Bulls Head House, a breakfast
of broiled spring chiekens with the etc.,
iu company with the members of the Cor
net Band, made us think the 4th was a
good day, and, while the cool morning
breezes were still playing over the broad
rich fields, loaded with that which promi
ses to be, in every sense, an immense gol
den harvest, we made the remainder of
the way to the capital of the county, and
put ourselves in charge of Gen. Bigclow,
of tho Boardman House, for the day.
At 9 the people from every part of
Clayton and many from adjoining coun
ties began to fill the streets, groves, hotels,
stores and other trading houses and at 10
o'clock the population of Elkader, for the
day, was enough to carry an election
against any and all other points within the
district where the county seat question
might tome up. Tho procession formed
under the direction of Chief Marshal
Davis, and Asst. Marshal Daugherty,
and marched to the grounds prepared in
the beautiful oak grove on the east side of
the river, when the President cf the day,
Hon. Geo. L. Bass, of this city, conducted
the exercises in the order in which they
occurred. Prayer by the Rev. P. II
Hathaway, of Elkader music by the Mc
Gregor Cornet Band the Declaration of
Independence read by J. A. Cramer, of
Elkader,^.and the president announced the
orator of the day, the Hon. E. E. Cooley,
of Decorah. Mr. C. is an easy speaker
and we happen to know his address was
well received, giving the highest satisfac
on to all. At two o'clock the Masonic
Fraternity marched in procession to the
Elkader School grounds, on Front Street,
when the corner stone of the new ten
thousand dollar school house was laid with
the usual ceremonies belonging to that or

she did well, having secured the Mc

about the hundreds. Tables filled with
the best and greatest variety were set in
the grove, hotels and Stone Hall, and we
believe all there enjoyed the kind attention
of the managers of the Elkader celebra
tion of 1868. A dance in the evening in
an improvised hall made in the Freeman

day. Our home trip was made between

Lightning—Three Men Struck I
On Tuesday about 10 A. M. during a
thunder storm, several porsons were un
der the P. O. awning on Main St., near
the river. The offico of the Valley Tele
graph Co. was in the P. O. building near
a front window. Cast-iron columns sup
port the building near one of these the
wire enters. Suddenly a crack, like that
of a pistol, was beard and three gentle
men, nearest the iron columns, fell! There
was no thunder »n response to the shock.
Mr. Fred Wheeler and Mr. Frank Church
were leaning on the columns and Mr. P.
II. Piko was sitting close to one on the
threshold stono of the door. All fell
instantly. The by-standers in much
alarm raised the unconscious men up and
carried them to Cambrian Hall, across the
street, sat them down,__ rubbed them, ap
plied restoratives and in 30 minutes they
were right except a soreness of the limbs,
a slight sickness of the stomach, and a
sort of confusion of the whole mental and
physical system. In attempting to de
scribe their sensations when partly recov
ering they "gave it up." Mr. Wheeler's
sock wan a little scorched and his foot
made to bleed a trifle. Mr. Church was
numbed in his arms and legs Mr. Pike
was sick at the stomach as pale as though
roady for the grave, and so blind as to dis
tinguish no acquaintance except by the
voice. Much alarm existed for a short
time, but happily, all were soon over it
and good feeling became the order. There
were not many persons about those iron
columns during the balancc of the 6torm!
It is supposed the wire became over-charg
ed and passing so near one of the iron
column conductors, the electricity switched
off. Glass will be placed there, immediately,
as a defender and no such accident may hap
pen again in a hundred years.
The operator. Mr. Geo. F. Walker, re
ceived a shock that satisfied him of the
superiority of nature over raan'3 battery

to the many anxious solicitations from
persons far and near who are desirous of

disease prevents from visiting him
at Chicago, while there are others who
would seek advice are unable to incur the
time and expense, DR. BARTII has conclu

your letter. My personal interests are
the same as yours, but, like you, I do not
intend to be influenced by them, My con
struction of the law is the result of care
ful examination, and I feel quite sure an
impartial court would confirm it if the
case could be tried before a court. I *eid
you my views us fully stated iu a speech.
Your idea is that we propose to repudiate
or violate a promise when we offer to re
deem the "principal" in legal tenders.
1 think the bondholder violates his
promise when he refuses to take the same
kind of money be paid for the bond. If
the is to be tested by the law, I am
right if it is to be tested by Jay Cooke's
adiertiximents, I am wrong. 1 hate repu
diation or anything like it, but we ought
not to he deterred from doing what is
right by fear or undeserved epithets. If,
under the law as it stands, the holders of
the live twenties can only be paid in gold,
then we are repudiators if we propose to
pay otherwise. If, ou the other hand, the
bondholder can demand only the kind of
money he paid, then he is a repudiator
and an extortioner to demand money
more valuable than be gave.

for tho saleoftho Akron Buckeye, ask him
to let you sec his papers ask him if his

The above mean, scurrilous attack up
on me in tho News, is by one Goodrich,
charging mo with representing myself as
his agent I take this opportunity of vin
dicating myself. In the first place, being
much better known in Clayton county,
than this man Goodrich, it is absurd to
suppose that I could make anything by
such representation. This charge is
totally and entirely false it is a lie, and I
defy Goodrich to prove it otherwise. Sec
ondly, be calls my machine "bogus" and
claims bis own to be the genuine Buckeye.
This is as false as the previous charge,
and he knows it. Every Machine man
knows that the "Buckeye" is manufactur
ed at six places, fivo of these pay a royal
tj to the original Buckeye Manufacturers
at Canton, Ohio, for the privilege of
making their machines. Goodrich's Akron
Buckeye is one of these. So much for his
"Genuine Buckeye." It is very plain,
however, to sec what is tho causo of all
tbis misrepresentation and falsehood. This
ous sales to good, substantial nicn tbis
is where it rubs. Yes, I hare made "num
erous sales," too numerous it seems, to
please Mr. Goodrich my customers know
just what they »re getting, and are satis
filed with it when they get it. A wound
ed bird will flutter. I make this state
ment to the farmers, not so much for the
sake of the injured, as to correct the mis
representation of the just.
