Mr. Potter, the ablo rditor of the
Mound City Journal, docs us groat in
ju'tice, when he aya wo have attacked
him that wo have made upon him a
scurrilous attack. Wo have not. He
mistakenly asserted that our polities
ought to please negroes because our
Democracy was objectionable to white
pooplo. .He went further and sought
to discredit us with Democrats by
charging that we favored the interests
of tho negroes nt tho expense of
the interests of our own peo
ple. In short, lw manifested
a disposition to become tho ad-
voeato in this nait of the Ststc of
that eJmn of Man who have tiu politio
idea that does not embrace in its scopo
ilotcxtntiou oftlio negro aud a desire to
exterminate him from tho faoo of tho
earth. We thought this conduct
strange. Wo remembered that he had
been a captain of a negro company
that he had been an advocate of nciro
soldiers, and we called attention to the
fact, not to dispargc him, but to put
his present anti-negro uttoraucos
in contrast with hi for
mer nigger conduct. We
did not intend to attack him ; and do
not now propose to do so. We bclievo
that Mr. Potter will not support Mr.
Ulomcuts. We put no faith in the ru
mor that bo has been "induced" br
OlementH and certain Fodoral office
holders to tako the stand he now occu
pies. The rumor has probably grown
on4 of the fact that his present posi
tion gives aid and comfort to Mr.
Clements and tho Radical State ticket.
Wo aro suro ho has not sold out. Our
theory is that he is not well that, to
use tho language of McCartney in
reference to Mr. Jones, "a grub worm is
gnawing at his vitals.'" Wo could not
induce ourself to attack a man afuictcd
by a grub worm. Ya JiJ not and
wili not attack 1 'otter, and

oernt. The Executive Committee of the
Independent Keforuiorn met nt Chicago
the day after tho Democratic Commit
tee met aud issued what is known as
the McCormiek Call. Messrs. Gore
aud Ktter met with tho committee of
their party. We know that not only
was Mr. Htter desirous of .1 nomina
tion by tho Opposition convention, but
that Mr. Gore also was, and almoit
every member of tho committee ex
pressed the opinion that tho Opposition,
or Dcmociatio convention would not
act wisely if it rofusod to nominate tho
Farmers' ticket.
Tho "purposes" set forth in the M
Cormick Call wore also discussod. The
financial purpose of the Call was con
demned by ono or two of thu commit
tco who had imbibed tho foolish belief
from soino impure fountain that money
can bo mado ot chips or other va'ulcss
things ; tho other moinbers wore appa
rently in a hazy condition and hud lit
tle to say on tho pubjoot, but goneral'y
agreed that a return to Hpeoio payment
waa ileairulilo. Mr. Goro very explic
itly took this ground, and in couverra
tiou endorsed 11s Democratic tho pur
poses of tho Call. At that time, he
desired the nomination of tho Opposi
tion convention, nnd believed that in
tho union of tho Domocrntio-Oppoei
lion and tho Independent Jleformors
was tho only hope of defeating the
Kepublican party. Ho haw no reason
why he might not bo nominated by the
Call convention, and why, if nominated
by it, ho might not necopt tho nomina
tion. Ho gavo expression to these
FCiitiments to both Mr. Hcsini: and
Mr. Obcrly. Mr. Ktter ngreed with
Mr. Uore in tho bolicf that tho Indo
pondent Deform candidates might,
without stultification, accept tho noin
ination of tho Deinocratic-Oppogition,
but was not tit first 11.1 well satisfied
with the financial plank of the Call.
It being true that .Mr. Gore, the In-
dependent Reform candidate for state
treasurer, was willing to necopt a nom
ination for thu same oflico from tho
Democratic-Opposition convoutiou why
was his colloaguo on tho ticket, .Mr.
Ktter, uomiuatcd and he "left out in
tho cold ' ' Several causos coritpired
to defeat him In tho first pluct. the
Democrats of S.S. Marshall's district,
naicrtud that tbo nomination of the
Farmers' stato '.ickct would drivo Mar
shall out of the field nnd ulcot Gen.
Anderson ; but OAs consideration would
have had no effect, and Mr. Goro would
hive been uoninalcd, if ho had not
bcon donouueed by nearly all the del
egates from his own county and neigh
boring counties as a man of no 'integ
rity. Tho delegates from Mr. Kttcr's
county were loud in his praise, whiU
almost fiery delegate from the
region of eot.ntry in which Mr
Gore lives, ilraounccd him in the
most unmeasureil teims. We do not
know that what vas Jaid in denuncia
tion of Air. Gore jv his neighbors was
true ; but wc do know lie Had no
friend who dcfcudd him. Mr. Htter
on the other hand, had friends who
met every objection to him with
eulogy upon his character and popu
larity. Tho con.-oiUtneo of this con
ditlou of alT.iirs was the withdrawal of
Mr. Goro from the convention, and the
nomination of Mr. Filer. Mr. Goro
was as willint; as Mr. Htter, but his
adrnnccs wore not rcccivod by tho Op
position with tlio same lavor.
