Whenever the Democratio party has on
opportunity to nominate a aoldier for office,
and fails to do bo, no matter how deficient
in qualifications, the Republican newspapers
and street corner orators have raised a most
distressing wail of sympathy for the abused
hero, but when they find it convenient to
theinselvej ignore the soldier, they do it and
say nothing. The Republican convention
which nominated Mr. Gest for congress re
cently at Rock Island completely ignored
the claims of Capt. Dry den, an eloquent and
disabled soldier, because Gest is rich and
had been flirting with the grcenbackers, and
it was theught he could secure their vote,
