Holt enmity does not nsk "that all better than the vote of 1870 what vote each eonntv can now cast. Xow, let us examine the Republican argument for :l inomcnt. It savs "the Republican vote throughout the Slate in 18.8 wa- reduced one-nun ami ins mi i-nicnim from which to judge the streii'jth of the partwi." We cannot see the force of this. The Democratic vote of 1878 was also hugely reduced ; and yet the total num ber 'of votus east by all parties in 1878 was but a little over V,00U less than the total number cat in 1871. In other W)nls ,hu Hepublicau's in 1878 lost nearly 49,(M)0 votes and the Democrats lost upwards of 20,001) votes, and yet the total vote of the State was reduced only a little over 8,010. The cxplana- this is not difliclt't to find. He- tween 1870 and 1878 a new party sprang into existence which drew laravly from the; rote of both parties. In 1 870 the total Grewiback vote in Missouri was inly J,0ii4, while in 1878 it was 01,167. 5 lifferent counties were differently af fected by this new element in politics, and Nodaway county was one of those whi'.li felt its effect most seriously. Thus we find that while tho Greenback vote of Nodaway was only uO in 1870, it was 1210 in 1878: and while the He- ! publican vote of Nodaway was 2,21:1 in 1876, it was only 1,8 in li. aiso, the Democratic vote of Nodaway was 2,411 in l70, and only 1,810 in 1878. Yet he total vote of all parties in Nod away in 1870 was 4,08:1 and in 1878 was 4,024, a difference of only 59 votes. In other words, tho Grcenhaekcrs drew 635 from tho llepublieans anil ' from tho Democrats. Nov, those 6 j,-, Kopublicaw votes are gone. The men who cast them have cnited with another political partv, inimical to the Republicans and we insist that there is no fairness or justice in Nodaway iiiintv :mkiii!r representation in the K- . . . .... - njpan convention hasecl on uao more I Republican votes than she csn now cast. This is tho whole m.-.m-r m nutshell. Holt connty also felt the ef fects of the new party, and her Repub lican vote suffered from that cause She is willing to go into the conven tion with a representation based upon her reduced vote of 1878 and she only akslhatNod.-.vay do the same. Men and brethren, the rijhl is with Holt county in this matter, and the right must prev-.il. DTt. TAXSKIfS FAT.

He has now passed , . ..... the twenty-K.th l.-vy a time in which.ac eording to all previously accepted theories, he should have died, and is still alive and lively. He has lost about ftliirty-five pounds of flesh. A corps of physicians watches him ni;ht and day, so theie is no possibility of deception. The question of who would be reqion sible in case he dies is being pretty vig orously discussed in some quarters. It is held that it would be manshuighter, in ?;lnch those who were constantly with him without making an effort to save him from the consequence of his own madness, would bo criminally guilty. It is also feared tlmt this will buthe beginning of a mania for fasting, in which fasting matches will take the place of walking matches, races, etc. Dr. Tanner has already icccived a the vagabonds would ioin m such matches the country might get ritl of some uf its surplus population which it could well spare; but the danger is that men of sense and worth may be draw.i into them on account tif the .supposed benefits to science which may be dem onstrated by suchexpwriincats.

We see' in the St. Joseph papers monster a petition asking Ccacral James Craig tu submit his name to the Demo cratic convention as a candidate for congres. WV were satisfied by a ten minutes talk we- hail withlum on the fourth of July that he would be in the field in due time. Well, he is a good fellnw personally, and a great favorite of the Holt county Democracy; but when he was in congress before ho did not make n good a conaressman as Ford has made, and, as betweeir those two, we much prefer Ford. The faet is that while Ford has not been showy amF windy he has been a qubt, earnest persistent worker, and has really ac complished1 inotnr for his district than any one who ever before represented it. He has iiow "learned, tho ropes," too, w nml is uetter fi'1 Ur accomplish still greater good in thu future. We can see no good reason for exchanging him for Craig or any other Democrat. Six weeks ago, Henry Wattersonr editor of the Louisville Courier-Journal, said in his paper: "Hancock is a fool in shnuhtitr straps." Ho is now wasting tons of ink in writing editor ials urging the election of Hasiuck to the Presidency.
