A WORD OF WAB1IN0.
If the Democrats a:e not careful
some of the districts in which they
have a large majority will return
Republican magistrates to the
County Court Take the Four
teenth district, for instance. Messrs.
Elliott andFlemming are the regu
lar nominees of the district conven
tion. The Eadicals have deter
mined, in a quiet way, to support
J. A. Thompson, colored, and T.
D. Eldridge, but in order to divide
the Democratic vote they have
made overtures to Esquire Hall
and Mr. Clavin, and those gentle
men have been induced to run as
independents under the belief that
the Republican vote will mostly be
cast for them. They are greatly
mistaken. We have reliable infor
mation that Messrc. Thompson and
Eldridsre will receive almost the
unanimous Republican vote of the
district. Of course if the Demo
cratic and Conservative vote is
divided the Radicals will slip in
The Radicals are working adroitly
in the dark, and we should not de
ceive ourselves in regard to the'u
movements. Esquire Thompson,
it will be remembered, was elected
before. lie was opposed by four
teen high-toned Democrats, each
one of whom thought he could
beat the other thirteen and the
colored ehoemak'er thrown in. Con
Bequently the man and brother
walked in oyer them all. As we
have said before, the Radicals are
willing to- sacrifice everything else
in this election to secure the County
Court Let our people be on their
ruard. The Radicals have been
looking to this election of magis-
trates for years and laid their pi ins
to carry it.
him by the Radical orators and
press. They cannot charge him
with corruption, dishonesty or
timidity. lie is as nearly consis
tent and invulnerable as is possible
for human nature. The attacks
made on him take the shape of
mere innendo and vague hints. An
honest public official who will not
abuse a public trust to reward per
sonal favorites would be an anoma
lous or abnormal being in the Re
publican party but only to be
kicked out and disgraced. Tilden
is a man to be feared and hated by
the Republican party. The purity
and uprightness of his character
cannot be questioned, and tins bus
not been attempted only by some
reckless sheets of small or no in
fluence. Mr. Tilden is tho embodi
ment of reforms demanded by the
people. "The man and the hour
have met." lie has the ability and
the nerve to cleanse the Augean
stables. Let the Government at
Washington once be placed in hon
est hands and the regime of the
fathers of the country be restored,
and then all desirable chances and
reforms will be effected in States,
counties and cities.- The election
of Hayes and Wheeler would fasten
on the country a despotism of
office-holders that would entail end
less cost and misery on the people.

The political situation in Tennes
see is regarded with much solici
tude by the members of Congress
from that State. The attitude of
Dorsey B. Thomas in regard to the
approaching State convention ex
cites fears ol the repet'tion ot the
disastrous campaign four years ago.
when a Bimilar division in the Dem
ocratic party led to the election of
Horace ilaynard as member of Con

that Mr. Thomas has not the great

The Xew York Herald, of the
25th, contains an editorial of more
than a column favoring the nomi
nation and election of Mtuto'i
Marble, late editor of the Wo.U,
for Governor. This is generous in
a paper like the Ilerald toward tha
founder and life-long conductor of
one of tits leadiusr rivals. The
Ilerald says: "We have had good
opportunities and a sufficient mo
tive, for the last dozen years or
more, to take note of Mr. Marble
as a man of executive talent. If
we are biased by our profession the
bias would be more likely to ope
rate against him than in his favor,
for rival journalists aro not apt to
be indulgent judges of each other's
merits. But we suppose that no
body who knows anything of the
management of a metropolitan
juuiuaican uouDt that it requires
greater executive skill, and mora
alertness and readiness of mind to
conduct a great journal than to
iftlniinistcr the goverrimen t of a
State, lie would make one of the
most admirable Governors of our
time, and we should be proud to
see a citizen who has acquired his
chief distinction as a journalist oc
cupy that honorable position.''
Journalists are certainly recognized
