Pomeroy, now under sentence of death
for tho murder of Horace Miller and
Katie Curran, has recently made several
most ingenious attempts to escape from
the jail where he is confined. A few days
ago, wlilie the process, ol cleaning out
his cell was going on, a large piece or
while paper, which ltui w?" punted to
the wall near the floor tell to the lloor.
The displacement showed that three
bricks had been removed from the wall,
and several others looened so that they
could be easily taken out. Tho
noio inns lonneti was near
tho window In tho cell and
oil a level with tho bottom.
Pomeroy's tools were the wire which he
had worked out or the rim of his wash
basin, the cover to a sardine box nnd his
Iron spoon. He had wrcuclied ofl'one of
the rounds to his chair, and had used It
ut a lever to pry out the bricks. The re
fuse mortar he had concealed in a paper
piaeca under his mattress. After tills
discovery, Pomeroy's cell was searched,
and two. letters, one to his mother, and
one to his brother, were found. In these
letters, he detailed his plans to escape.

on ms ceil was In, tho windows and
everything that was to be removed to
make his way clear. He begged for a file,
telling them to conceal It in a banana, as
this would be glvon him without exanil-
uatlon. The boldness and cunnlnir dev
played by I'omcroy in these attempts to
escape nave developed a method In hi

at Galllpolis, Ohio, on thuiMst, construed
the lluauclal plank of thu Ohio Demo

ner. He holds that It docs not mean In
ilatiou, hutdiscnutiuuancc ot contraction,
ami the adoption of the let-alono policy.

This is a wise position. The great dif
ficulty in this country, at the present
time, Is want of conlldeuce. Money re
fuses to come out of Its lurking places
and give vitality to enterprises because
It Is alrald. .Senator Spraguo truly said
on one occasion, that "nothing is more
cowardly than a million of dollars, ex
cept two millions." The currency dol
lars hide their heads in bank vaults, safes,
stockings and pocket books, while their
value is being discussed. Since the fail
ure ot .lay tookeanti the destruction or
ilnancialconlldence"occasioned thereby.
the politicians have, V.y their unwise con
duct, prevented any revival of conll-
dencc, and have in tills way worked most
disastrous contraction by making the
currency bide and remain idle.
"Let us Inflate,'1 one has
cried; "Let us contract," the other. "11
you Inflate," ouo has shouted, '' von will
make your money rags;" and "If you
contract," tho other has protested, "you
will bring bankruptcy upon the country

refused to bo nimble. They have been
idle lurkcrs, awaiting tho determination
ot tho financial controversy on thu ipics-
Hon: "Shall we Inflate or contract V" And
whllo the dlscussioii goes on tho lack ol
confidence will continue to exist. What
wo need Is tho adoption of (hu policy ol
nanus on. e must stop tluketlng with
tho currency. Always keeping in view
'lie fact that gold must lie the bask of
any sound currency, a return to specie

and wise statesincnshlp aseertain the

lately much-ado about our polltic.1I rec
ord, and has shamelessly misrepresented
it. Vi e have nothing to conceal. What
we advocate, we advocate without fear or
deslro of concealment.
From our youth up, wo havo been a
Democrat, but havo not always acceded
to all tho foolUh notions of men claiming
to bo Democratic leaden.
Wo.were with Douglas hi Hie Kansas-
Nebraska. struggle, although then but a
boy, and our ilrnt presidential vote was
cast for the Little Giant In a Southern
State, where "pure Democracy" was un
derstood, among tiie managing leaders of
Democratic sentiment, to mean Urcckin-
ildgeisin and Secession.
Wo opposed Secession, and whenever
tho issue was presented nt
the polls, voted lor tho Union, and
rather than surrender to the public sent!-
ncnt of tho Southern State in which wo
lived, we lost a property worlh thousands
of dollars, which nropotty nftnvaVJ,s In
other handi matin n fortune for lu fsfe
flnii owner, Our persistency In ndvorntv
of the Union nt the South put our life In
danger. We were arrested by the olll-
ers of a vigilance committee and by thai
committee ordered, upon penalty of
death, to leave for the Xorth within
ten hour from the time the order was
At the Xorth we were a I'nlnii man,
and at no time Justllled the cour-e of the
people of the South, with whom wo had
lived from boyhood nnd from whom we
had been separated by our rel'u-al to sur
render our devotion to the Union.
We opposed many of the policies or
the Republican parly in the conduct ol
the war. We voted for MeClellau, and
were all tho time a Democrat. 01 what
ever errors ol'Judgnient wciveieguilty.the
party was also guilty, for ir we made a
mistake at all In reference to the war, it
was In following the lead or the patty.
We always opposed the policy of
many Democrat, who would have none
hut "lalthl'ul Democrats" for candidate,
and never, as the Jmimat has charged,
repelled "conservative Union men from
the Democratic, party." Wo always
urged upon the Democrats, thai the lie
publicans had succeeded by takhig men
formerly Democrats, and pulling them
forward, and that tho Democrat being
a minority parly, should not repel Re
publicans who desired to come Into the
party by telling them to take u "back
seat." Mr. rotter does not tell the
truth when he asserts the contrary.
Wu supported President .folm-on as
against Cnugics.
Wlieu the congivs-lonal policy or Re
construction had been enforced upon the
Seceded Staid, we resisted the sugges
tion tiiat it should be overthrown by the
sword; nud Insisted that the Democracy
ought to recognize the results of the war
and accept accomplished, facts, among
which accomplished facts was universal
sullrage negro sullVngc. Thi was the
Now Departure, for advocacy of which
Mr. Potter and other Mound City Demo
crats complimented us.
The negroes having become eill.ens,
wo as-ertcd that the only safety of the
Republic was in educating tho race at the
expense ol the public. V e were and are
opposed to "mixed schools," but voted
in tho legislature to punish by line -ehool
otllcer-s who refused to give colored chil
dren school facilities, and to line any one.
who by violence prevented colored chil
dren lroiu attending the schools they
have the right to attend. When Mr. Pot
ter asserts that thi law mixed the schools
he does not tell tho truth. The inlxlnj
mischief was done by the constitution
and by Ihe school law passed before we
were u member of tho legislature.
.We opposed Hie civil rights bill as an
attempt to compel tho o?laI eipiallty of
the races, an attempt which, explicitly
and with much emphasis, wo said, was ;
ciimc against both the white and the
black man an attempt that would and
ought to fail. Our speech at .Mound City
was a somewhat elaborate argument to
prove, that while t lie prophecy r ''c-
ferson that thu ulave.s would bo extermi
nated wheu they had become free, would
not be realized, the social equality of tin:
races prophecled by Warren, in HiacK-
wood'a Magazine, In lSj.., was linpo-si"".,
and that the Anglo Saxon race in Ameri
ca must be prc-ervod pure In all its vigor.
YVhe.u Mr.PoUer attempts to 1 W1SI a plain
and strong argument agauit the civil
rights bill its an attempt lo compel
social equality, Into advocacy or amalga
mation, he proves himself to be exceed
ingly mean. We are anxious to consid
er lilin an honest man ; but his persistent
assertion of this charge, in the lace of thu
most conclusive evidences ol its falsity,
is leading us to belieyo he l not.
We have never concealed our political
opinions, and will not. We havo almost
always been in conflict with certain Dem
ocrats who hold back until they have
been puhcd up. and we have sometimes
been compelled to dissent from the party
and to denounce its action upon certain
questions. We have done this with a full
knowledge ol tho fact that the course
would rulu us as an olllee-seeklug politi
cian; but we have never wanted any of
fice and aro not now a candidate for any
position the people have in their gilt.
Wo will do and say what we please,
and tlio-e' who do not like us for our in
dependence can dilike us, and in any
way they see proper give expression to
their dislike. The evident tear of cer
tain gentlemen at Mound City and hi
Jackson county that wu may bo an ob
struction lo their advancement has no
loundalion in fact. Wo are not a caudl
date for any olllce, nnd do not Intend to
