nicii-rarcED -senators:
The Owensboro Shield la respectful
ly informed that we will leave the Dem
ocratic party when it bestsnrts oa,- and
not before; nor do we recognke its Rrr
thority or ability to read us out of that
organization. It is ju3t such intensely
Confederate folk as the editor of that
paper one ofthe sort who patriotically
applauded hia neighbors and friendu
when they went out to imperil their
lives for the Southern cause, but , took,
exceeding great care to keep their own
precious bodies; out of the way of Yan
kee bullets that are playing thcxlev-
il with the Democratic party in Ken
tucky to-day. There is not a Confed
erate soldier in Kentucky who would
not look with lofty and indignant scorn
upon the Federal soldier who would go
to the polls and vote to reward any
man for his services m the Confederate-
e. Andjthe Federal, soldier who
could be guilty of so debasing an. act
would deserve to be scorned by "all
honest men. We must do the 'dJon-federate-soldier
clement of the Demo
cratic party the justice to say that they
are not tho ones who are precipitating
this trouble upon the party.
A word in addition, to prevent the
possibility of mistaking us on this mil
itary reward question. 'This is our
position, very plainly stated: "We are
opposed to-rewarding- any man for the
part he took in the kte war, whether
on the Confederate or Federal side, and
will oppose any one who may be pre
sented for our suffrage on that ground:
"We do not object to any man because
he was a- Confederate soldier. All wo
ask of any convention is that it shall
nominate men of good character and
frir standing, who shall possess the nec-"
essary qualifications for the position for
which he ia nominated, and. we care
not a fig which side he fought on. "We
have no "Union Democrat" to "trdt
out" "Ve are no man worshipper;
we are no idea worshipper. Vfe -are
aimply a Democrat who thinks a great
deal more of the good name and repu
tation ofthe party and the welfare of
the commonwealth than he does ofthcj
political advancement of any man.
