From tlio Cairo Gazette.
Wopubllih eleuwlierou vail for a demo
cratic convention in this, tho eighteenth
congroisionnl district. County contral
commlttoes will plcnto take notice.
Grave queitlons aro brought up by thli
announcement, for imniodiato coniidur
ntiori. Chief among tbcio, lithi.: How
can the element! of Opposition in this dli
trlct, tho Democrats and lluformen, be so
united as to insure tho defeat of tho Jud
ical candidate? Tho purposes of those
two elements aro identical, and their
principles aro so nearly so that a common
platform can easily lo constructed. Why,
then, may not the Democratic contral
committee already formed, and tho ro-
rotm central commutes in process oi
formation; moot for conference, and de
tormlnolf tbo obstacles in tbo way of a
consolidation of forces, (which will arise
chiefly in the (election of a candUate) may
not bo romovod? Place a good man in
tha field, ono who is accepliblo alike to
Democrats and Koformors, and Isaac Clo
menu will bs loft at home by a majority
of 4,000 votes. If such a result is worth
contending for let tho two central com
mltteos no mod take tho Initial steps at
onco, and then judicious effort will bring
It about.
We agree with tho Gazette Tho
great question in this distriot is: "How
can the elements of Opposition bo con
solidated so as to insuro tho defeat of
the Hadical candidato ?" It surely can
not bo done by tho Domocratio Con
gressional Coiumiltco refusing to act in
harmony with the Liberals and the In
dependent Ilcformors by calliugDem
ocrats to assemble iu convention and
shuttingatho doors of tbo convention
iu tho faco of tho other elements of op
position. Hut the committee has called
a Democratic convention, without in
viting the co-oporution of either tho
Liborals or Independent lleformers.
That mistako has already been made.
It tbo convention, following in tho
footsteps of tbo committee, should ro
fuse to solicit tho support of tho "other
elements ol Opposition" in this dis
trict, and nominate n man who can
rally, not only tho Democrats, but tho
Liberals and the Independent Reform
ers, then good-byo to all hope of suc
cess. The moment the eon vontion makes
tbo mistako we have indicatcd,that mo
ment will the Clements political gooso
bo observed to hang high, while every
thing on the Radical side of tho house
will becomo lovely.

Tilton Denies Jluviug Ile
cciTcd Money From
More About that Servant
Qirl who AVas Sent
An Interesting Interview
Botwoon a Correspon
dent and Theodore.
Nkw Yohk, August lfi. A reporter bus
bad a brief tulle with Thoodoro Tilton.
He denied that bo bad received any money
from lieecher, and if Moultun had rocoived
the amount statod, it devolved on him to
account for It.
Shortly aftor Mrt. Tilton'i confonion
of Mr. lieochur's criminality, tbo servant
who wat thou living with Mr. and Mrs. Til
ton, became awaro of the fact from having
overheard conversations which bad passed
betweeu them, and sho began to whisper
to her friondt in lirooklyn. As soon as
this state of tbincs was discovered, it was
determined upon to send the girl out of
UrJoklyn,as a protection to lieochor. She
was tent to a boarding-school. Deecbor
paid hor expontos through Moulton,
This might havo amounted to some $2,000.
Several gontlnmen contributed to the
supporS of tho Goldea Ago, and Beecber,
he said, might have boon among tho num
ber, but Moulton oould account for that.
It It statel in the Brooklyn Eaglo that
tbo servant irlrl buslnoss will woar
another complexion when the story of tbo
gin, now in the possession or tlio i'ly
mouth church investigation committee, is
mado public. The allegation Is that Til
ton, not Iloecher, wat interested in her ro
movtil trom lirooklyn. It soems, from
her stfttemeut, now leaking out, iho was
an adopted child in tho Tilton household,
taken when an Infant, and always treatod
at a momber of tho family. During the
abtonco of Mrt. Tilton, this adopted
daughter left tbo bouse, and on Mrs. Til
ton's return rotated to her tbo occurrences
loading to the act. After awbite tho story
crept out, and Mrs, Tilton wat tent by
Mr. Tilton to inoro than ono bouse to
deny It, and finally, finding it did not dlo
oasily, tho girl wat Induco by Mr. Tilton
and Mrt. Tilton to sign a statement de
nying what werocallod wicked storioa tet
on foot sgblntt Tiltnn, Arter tbia retrac
tion wat obtainod Tilton had tho girl tont
West to school, and Francis D. Moulton
paid her tuition and board bills. Thit It
the girl's own story, as the . has, told It to
the commltteo to lior school toacber and
to Mr. Shearman.
Boocber loft the I'ooksklll this morn
ing, and Mrs. Ileocbor says she does
not think he will return before Octo
ber. Ttq Argut tlatot that Frank Moulton
will do at General Butlor advised him
'Come Ii last."
