THE SIXTH DISTRICT.
The Herald has noted the various ]
speculations of the press of this district 1
on the Congressional field, and has here- ,
tofore refraiued from expressing its opin- ,
iou. We observe, however, that every
county in the district except one or two
has a candidate who aspires to have the
“office seek the man” provided he is the
man. Of one thing all may rest assured.
The Republicans of the gallant Sixth de
mand that the man presented for their
suff rages be one of strength aud ability,
oue that will be able to take the stump
and clearly discuss the issues now before
the people. Some of the seekers after
the nomination, while good men in the
general acceptation of the term, are not
mule of the kind of material that c:.n go
into a tight such as the next campaign
promises to he and cover eitli r the party
or themselves with glory. The efforts of
Democrats aud Greeubackers to coalesce,
will iu our opinion fall to the ground. Demo
crats in this county at least, do not forget
the treatment they received at the hands of
their Greenback allies, last fall and will
not care to put themselves iu a position
for a similar sell out. They demand that
they have some voice in who the nominee
shall be, aud to fill their measure he must
he a man of Democratic antecedents.
Even, however, if these elements should
u iite there is no reasou why we should
not succeed, unless a mistake is made in
the nomination. While we believe there
is no reason to apprehend defeat, yet we
tulize that this will not be a “walk over,”
and accordingly urge the nomination of
the very best and strongest man in the
district; and in order to find him it may
be necessary lo go outside of tin- list of
mines presented as candidates. The
Herald has no candidate to press claims
for, and it proposes to Work, for the norni
nation of a capable man, and a good and
true Republican, and when nominated
will give him hearty support, but we have
no desire to enter a canvass with the
knowledge that the party is carrying a
weight. We an- also in favor of tl •
o illing of the convention late, the reasous
wherefore we will give hereafter.
The Independent - Workingmens - Na
tionals-Greenback party are fond of draw
ing comparisons between their own
present weak and inefficient stature and
the early days of the Republican party.
They say: look at the beginning of the
Republican party, how small and insuf
ficient it was; bow it struggled l'or exis
tence; bow it was traduced and hooted;
and how in spite of all opposition it grew
from strength to strength until it swept
all before it like a mighty rushing wind.
So, say these prophets, will be the history
of our party. Let's supply a comparison
these chaps always leave out. The Re
publican party wub founded upon a vital
principle—the very life of the nation
hung trembling in the balance, when it
came forward ami taking its ward in al
most the very throes of death, by careful
watching, faithful nursing and strong
protection brought it up from the terrors
of dissolution to the full vigor and
streugth of perfect mauhood. It made,
however, one mistake; the Republican
party had a soul, a warm responsive
soul, and when rebels, those who had
stabbed the nation to its very vitals came
with profession of repentance upon their
lying lips, and asked to be restored, it
extended a hand of brotherly and frater
nal greeting—only to he stung again by
the deadly asp of disunion and discord.
It found a country with a depleted treas
ury and impaired credit, it to-day shows a
nation, than which none other has a bet
ter credit; a nation with money in its
treasury, and reputation for honorable
dealing which is the envy of the world.
It stands to-day the father of the princi
ple of equality before the law, and in its
platforms is ever found the idea of an
honest payment of the debts of the na
tion iu an honest money. Against such
a record as the above the green
back party presents itself as a fitting com
parison, because forsooth, it is unorgan
ized. It wont do. In all the greenback
platforms we have seen—and we have
them all, including the National*? of Tole
do—there is not a single vital principle.
The one feature of every one is selfish
ness, it pervades them all; every plunk,
every sentence is an appeal to the most
sordid selfishness of men. The idea of a
division of property, eight hours labor
with the pay for ten, unlimited issues of
paper money sufficient for the wants of
all, and kindred ideas are not such as men
stand by, if need he with their lives; there
is not in them a single element of princi
ple that make men or parties strong in
their support. The very fact that the
greenback leaders are continually at dif
ference as to what they want, is the best
evidence of the supreme selfishness of
every man who would foist upon the
country this damnable thing called repu
diation, hut named “absolute money" by
Brick Pomeroy and others of his breed,
in the hope that in the ruin of others
they themselves might get gain. No, Mr.
Greenbaokcr, before you have a right to
compare tire shadow of a dream called
the greenback party to the grand old Re
publican organization, you must have a
principle at stake that will call from men
a better and purer devotion than that
born and reared in the realm of self.
The Chicago Time* of last Saturday
uioruiog printed dispatches from nearly
two hundred joints in Illinois, Wiscon
sin, lowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Dakota,
Kansas and Missouri, covering the whole
of the western spring wheat region, which
show when summarized that the acreage
is nearly 50 per cent, greater than last
year; that the conditions and prospects
aae berter than at any time since I 860;
that the season's work and vegetation are
three to six weeks ahead of the nsual
time, and that there is an acreage of 15 to
20 per cent of the old crop on hand.
The Ft Madison Investigation drags
its slow length along and promises to con
Last week we received from a corre
spondent a communication making some
strange demands of the Republican party.
The length of the article—3 columns —
prevented its publication, but we propose
to consider the question treated of, as
briefly as we can, but plainly. The chief
demand is a repeal of the resumption
act. To such a demand
party but one answer, and that is a
positive, unqualified no. The nearer the
time approaches for the fulfilment of the
law in this matter, the more evident it
becomes that the resumption act was
wise legislation that will result in gen
eral good to the whole country. 11 is said
that resumption means contraction.
Let’s see how much the contraction has
been. Prior to the rebellion ami in sea
sons of the most prosperous oiiaraoter
the amouut of money per capita never
exceeded $10.74; in 1804 it was $14.74;
in 1806 it was $19.95, the highest
point ever reached; in 1870 it was $17.-
73; and last year it was $14.79 of paper
money for each person. These figures
are from the American Almanac by
the librarian of Congress and is a
recognized authority by all. The
difference then between the * pres
ent circulation and that of 1806, when
the whole country was in a fever and di
lirium of extravagance and speculation,
is only $5.10 per capita, and to day the
$14.79 will purchase at least 40 per ceut
more of all commodities than the sl9 95
would in 1800, making it in fact worth
$5.91 more now than then, or in other
words, the $14.79 to day is worth, and
will buy as much as $‘20.70 would in
800, so that there is in iact no coo true-
tiou, but a judicious return to reason uud
economy, and to-day with a difference of
but of a cent between gold and green
backs it would be insanity for us to go
back and re-enact the scenes of 1866 and
have to do over again the labor of the
years since, which have brought us to the
present condition of financial stability. If
the greenback dogma of “absolute money”
was correct, and the government could
print on a piece of money “this is a dol-
lar,” and cause] it to be so considered
whether the idea of convertibility iuto
coin was expressed or not, then of course
resumption would be useless. We would
issue greenbacks, as the new theory is—
absolute, perpetual money, by tens, aud
hundreds, and thousands if billions aud
flood the country with them until e very
man whether frugal or shiftless, industri
ous or lazy, would be so surfeited with
motley that it would be a secondary mat
ter with him what any articlo cost; he
would simply say, “1 want that,” and
down with his pile of greenbacks; and
when they were exhausted it would only
be necessary for him to go to a govern
ment loan office and lay iu a'new supply.
Labor as a means of proeuriug money
would be unknown. But such can never
be*iu this country. Its money must be
honest money—mouey that means what
is expressed by the word itself —a meas
ure of price, a representative of value.
By this (honest money) is not
implied that all the money of the couutry
should be gold or silver, but a medium of
exchange That at’all times is a measure of
given value, Thus to day the greenback
dollar is a measure of value worth 99|
cents, and long before the resumption re
quired by law its value will bo co-equal
with gold, and will be a representative of
a gold or a silver dollar and as good as
either. Take away from the greenback
dollar the idea of it as a representative of
value and what|would it be worth? Just
what any man saw proper to give for it

clination to follow our correspondent

The Republican party has no “game”
to play in this matter; it is in favor of
a return to a specie basis, from principle,
as the only honorable way to conduct the
finances of the country. And on that
platform it will continue to battle for the
right as it did in other days for other
principles of right aud we believe it will
The Eddyville Advertiser brings out
llou. E. H. Stiles of Wapello as a candi
date for Congress and gives him a good
send-off. It says “it is demanded that he
no longer ’hide his light under a bushel’
but make his jwell recognized ability felt
in the political arena." Mr. Stiles if
nominated will no doubt make a vigorous
canvass. It further says of him: “It is
evident that Mr. Stiles has developed
strength enough to run on his own merits,
and that his prospects of success aro
second to none. He is one of the lead-
ing aspirants for the position, and as
such is evidently worthy the support of
the county of which he is an honored
citizen. His political record is so well
known throughout the State that it is
useless for us to refer to it iu detail. He
has been repeatedly honored with high
and responsible positions, and has ever
been faithful to his trust, and exhibited
sufficient ability for any task that may be
imposed upon him by tho people.”
The Des Moines Register says: “The
Baker Monument Association yesterday
let the contract for the building of the
monument, it is to be of granite, twen
ty-two feet high, and is to cost $1,200.
The contract is let to Mr.|R. S. Miller, of
this city, and the monument is to be
made mainly in Vermont. The design is
a very handsome one. It is possible that
the monument will be completed so that
it can be dedicated on Decoration Day;
if not then it will be dedicated on the
Fourth of July.”
Last Friday Win. M. Tweed, better
known as “Boss,” died in Ludlow stree t
jail in New York city. Thus ended in
shame and the disgraoe of a prison, a life
that had the capabilities of better things
than it has given to the world. Shrewd
and penetrating to a wonderful degree,
the forces that should have been for the
world’s good, were turned to corrupt an d
scheming political trickery; and the
memory of Win. M. Tweed will live only
as the “Boss" thief of the 19th century.
Congress has before it the report of the
finance committee in favor of making
legal tenders receivable in par for Unit
ed States 4 per cents and that from and
after the first of October they be receiva
ble for customs and other debts, exoept
where expressly otherwise stipulated, and
that after that date no legal tenders shall
be retired for any reason.
WILLIAM AM) MARY.
Not Sweet William and Gentle Ma
ry that people like to think about and
associate with all that is good, but
William and Mary Collego of Vir
ginia, an institution that was so true
to the State of its location that it sent
33 ofitß 35 teachers into the rebel ar
my to destroy the government under
which it existed and without which it
could not have existed ; an institution
which for 30 years taught treason and
disloyalty to its students, thus paving
the way for the four years of desolat
ing war, and whose teachings helped
slay thousands of good and true men;
this institution,with every pulsation of
its < orporatc life beating in sympathy
with the rebel hordes who now swarm
the halls of the National Congress,
and still endeavoring to sow the seeds
of disunion and future strife, now
comes boldly up to the doors of the
U. S. treasury and with a bold knock
demands entrance and the right to
pillage. $300,000 is the amount it
demands as compensation for the de
struction of college property, and its
demand is made boldly and defiantly,
being emboldened by the assurance
of Democratic “statesmen” that its
claim is just and should be allowed.
It sowed the wind and has reaped the
whirlwind, and a harvest of that kind
is not convertible into either gold,
silver or greenbacks, as William ui d
Mary should be taught plainly and
pointedly, and will be if dough-faced
democracy does riot again bow ihe

years before, and prices of all commo
dities were also higher. For instance:
in 1835 the amount of money per capita
was $8.19; in 1836 it jumped to $10.74,
and in’37 fell to $10.26. In 1870 it
was $17.73; ’7l $18.24 and in’72 18.01.
According to the greenback theory the
times should have been easy on account
of the abundance of money, rather than
close as they were. Tf true in those
cases will uot a violent aud sudden in

According to a new greenback theory a

FORNENST THE GREENBACKERS.
Mt. Pleasant Free Press, (Dein.)
Brick Pomeroy, the boasted apostle,
and high priest of the Greenback party
goes back on the new National party in
the following language:
“The Toledo convention has already
done more harm to the Greenback cause
than it can ever compensate for. Its ef
fort to turn greenback men over, like so
many cattle, to a comparatively new and
weak organization has disgusted the ma
jorltyof the Greeubackers throughout the
country, and a great many of them swear
they will see the convention and its man
agers damned before they repudiate the
Greenback party, or allow themselves to
be handed over to any other organiza
If the Pomeroy Democrat , the Chicago
Timet, and papers of that kind could be
set off in a little hell by themselves some
where, the world would wag along just as
well. They are too supremely selfish to
co-operate with anything or any body
and as fast as the people become convinc
ed of this fact, they will not co operate
A Model State Officer.
Charles City Inielligeueer.
The question who shall succeed the
Stato officers whoso terms expire this
fall is alroady being agitated. It seems
to bo generally conceded, so lar as
we have hoard, that Hon. Buren R.
Sherman will be his own successor ai
Auditor of State. Certain it is, few
men in the State are so popular, or so
deserving of their popularity. We
have known Judge Sherman nearly
twenty years, and we have always
known him as a straightforward, up
right gentleman, whose word was as
good as a bond. We hope to see him
renominated by acclamation, and be
lieve ho will be.
