Ik speaking of Mr. Bryant O. Cowan
last weak -we said:" 'He was by far
the best man on tho Democratic ticket.
He Is a Gentleman, who is recognized
jw such by all other gentlemen, wheth
er Republicans, Democrat or Green-
backers' What will be the astonish
ment of the reader when informed that
some of the other candidates, on the
Democratic ticket construed this to
mean that they wore not gcntlomon !
Of course we meant to convoy "no such
impression, nor can any such construc
tion be fairly placed on our language.
Statistics sometimes bring facts to
Kent that nro overwhelming. A littlo
Tolume published lately by Dr. lied-
field, eomspondent of the Cincinnati
Commercial, gives an idea of the law
lessness of the South that is almost be
yond belief. He says that figures show
thatths number of homicides there is
proportionally greater than in any other
civilized country in the world, and that
fince tho war they have reached an ag
gregate of 40,000. In 178 there were
mora in South Carolina than in the six
New England States, and in Michigan
and Minnesota. If hnmlcide was as fre
quent in New York as in Texas, in pro
portion t'aiti population.! there would
be an average of five murders daily,
Sun&'ays7-'Included. These statistics
show that the taking of human life is as
little regarded in the .-ronth as the blow
ing tf the wind. Law and order are at a
discount there and will be until polttical

NICHOLAS lOKD will not bo quite ss
lonesome in the next Congress as he
has been in the present one. Hereto
fore tho Missouri delegation has been
composed of twclro Dcn.o :mts and one
Grcenbackcr,-Mr. Ford. But at the
recent election the Grcenbackers elec
ted Ilnzcltinc (formerly a Republican)
over Waddell (Democrat) ia tho Sixth
w (Springfield) district; Rice (formerly
a RepublicatfX' oror Phillips (Demo
crat) In tho Seventh (Scdalia) district;
ora (iornienr n ncpnuitc-in) over
Cmg (Democrat) in the Ninth (St.
Joseph) district; Barrows (formerly nj
Republican) ovor Mansur (Democrat)
in the Tenth (ChillicoUte) district;
and the Republicans elected Van Horn
(Straight Republican) over Crisp and
Allen (Democrats) In the Eighth (Kan
sas City) district. So the Missouri
delegation in the next congress wUl be
composed of J eight Democrats, four
Grcenbackers and one Republican ; and
as these four Grcenbackers were a 1
formerly Republicans, and were eleo-
ted by a fusion of the-Grcenbackers and
the Republii-ans in their xesnoctivo dls-
tricts, they will all act with tho Reptile I
licans in tha organization of the Uouic, I
as well as. 0'i, all other than financial J
questions. If tho Grcenbackers arc I
happy over the resnlt, tho Republicans I
are certainly not diseontcntcd.
O.i tho Sunday -before the election
tho St. Joseph Gazette published" a
carefully prepared estimate of the pros
pective vote of Messrs. Ford and Crai'
iu this distriot, in which it gave Crai" a
inajo-ity of three hundred in Holt coun
ty. 1 1 making this 'estimate the Ga
zette wasrais-Jed by the oft repcatod
assertions ot tho Democratic leaders in
tbis.county that they would certainly
gva Craig that majority or more. This
was Crate's old home and they built
their hopes largely on the feelings of
personal inemiship entertained towani
Mm by the o der settlers. One of these
Democratic leaders even told ns
at five o'clock on the afternoon of c-lec
tion day that he still believed Craig had
carried the county. The result shows
the proaencss of many persons to be
guided in their predictions more by
what they wish tho future to bring forth
than by cool calculation of what the
indications really are. Three weeks
before the election the Sentinel pub
lished an estimate of the congressional
voto, In which a majority of four hun
dred and fifty for Ford in Holt county
was predicted. We also stated that
his majority was mo o likely to bp
over than under these figures. The of
ficial returns show his majority in Holt
county to be four hundred and sixt-
fivc. This wo regard as pretty close
guessing. Had N. F Murray not made
the race for county judge, Ford's ma
jority would probably have reached
five hundred.; and, Miiee the voto in the
dUtrict proved .so el se, lud Mr. Ford
1tI!if defeated ho could have justly laid
the blame at Mr. Murraj-'s door. All's
well that ends well, however; and we
are happy both In I ho fulfillment of our
prediction and tho election of Mr. Ford,
Anil as the election is over and the
confession randu no harm, wo hope for
otir-wn satisfaction that liuueral Umlg
will now write us a letter admitting

It will be seen from the above that

As the popular vote above given is

RKFUBLICAJf STRENGTH OF HOLT.
By reference to tho table of election
retnrns published in the Sentinel last
week it will bo seen from the votes cast
for Garfield and Dyer that the Repub
licans have a dear majority in Holt
countv ol about three hundred. These
figures afford a subject for considera
ble reflection among Republicans; for.
although wee eclcd all the candidates
on our county ticket, tho majorities in
several cases were far be!ow what they
oucht to have been. Wi ll a clear ma
jority of tUrco hundred in the county
there shonld be no question whatever
about the elcclion of any man the Re
publicans niay choose to nominate.
Yet at every election., the Democrats
concentrate their efforts against two or
three of the Republican candidates and
greatly reduce their majorities, and in
former rears sometimes succeeded in
eVcting one or two Democrats. The
experience of the last two years, undor
& Democratic county court and a Dem
ocratic collector, oujht to teach Re
publicans a lesson which will prevent
them from being ..bamboozled by Dem
ocratic appeals in -future".
The Repub lean of Holt county hare
within their ranks an abundance of men
capable of filling all the county offices
With credit to themselves and to the sat
isfaction of the people. In the" uphea
val two years ago three Democratic
judges were elected, and the result is
that our coanty affairs havo been more
bunirlinclv managed than ever bifore
m tho history of the county. There can
be uo question whatever that had the
Republican candidates for these offices
been elected the county would -now bo
in a far better condition. hile it is
undoubtedly true tint the Republicans
do not always sclect'thcir best men to
fill the various positions, yet tho Dem
ocrats are no mora fortunate In this
respect, and, when a 1 things are foil
eredt it will be found that in almost
every case the Republican candidate is'
be-ter than his Democratic- competitor.
Learning wisdom by experience, the
Republicans should, see to it in future
that their local nominees run side by
side with the National and State ticket
Let us all dctcrmino that this shall
hereafter be the cuso; and, commencing
right now, let ns resolve that at the
election two years hence, we will.not al
lew me majonty oi any man on our
ticket to fall below two hundred and
fifty. Wo can do this; for we have the
votes and it is only 'necessary to si-c to

BEECHER AND IKQEIlSOI.t..
A few nights before the election, Henry
Ward Ucccher and Kobcrt J. Ingcrsoll
addressed a political inetii.g from the
samo platform -at the Academy of
Sluslc in Brooklyn, Jfew York. An
immense audience was present, includ
ing many ladies. Air. licechor intra

As V.r. Beeohor said this, he turned
to Mr. Ingcrsoll and extended his hand.

Mr. Bccch:r again stepped forward,
and.as if to emphasize tho earnestness ol
his nrevious compliment, proposed a
vote of thanks to Ihc" distinguished !

mation, whose voice was not stronger
when Mr. Ingcrsoll in lurn called npen
.the audience tojjive threo cheers for the
great prcachwr. They were giveif and
three times over. Mcu waved their hats
and umbrella ; ladits, of whom there
were many hundred present, waved
their handkerchiefs.' and men, straure

fervency "of brotherhood. It was.lu
deed, a strange' scene, and the princi
pal actors in it seemed not less than the
most wildly excited man there to appre
ciate its pecular import and Mnifi
cance. Standing at the stage, under
ncalh the canopy of fla?s, at cither side
great baskets of floWdrs, they clasped
each other's hand and stood thus for
many minutes, while the excited thous
ands cheered themselves hoarse.
FOUD AXD CRAIO.
There hus been intense excitement
throughout this congressional district
durinir tho past week over the vote of
Ford and Craig. As soon as it became
apparent that the voto between them
was very close, Gcnsral Craig's friend
went to work for the urpose of manu
facturing a majority forhini, if possi
ble. Dispatches were sent by them to
every lounty in which Craig had a
niaiorit. tavinir: "Can't you do a
little better for us?" In response to
this appeal, Ray county figured up
three more Craig votes, and one or two
were secured In Clinton. The returns
of ever-, county in the district were
carefully gone over, but sti'l Craig's
vote remained a littlo short of Fonl'.s.
Only Buchanan county remained for
them to work on, and there they
managed to get the Democratic county
clerk to certify the retnrns in such a
manner as to niakc the total vote of
Ford and Cr.iig in the. dixtrict exactly
the same. In other words, there is
The way thiwas done was as fol
lows: In one of the St.. Joseph pre
cincts one of the clerks of election got
to beastly drunk that he was unable to
correctly keep tho tally sheet, and about
the middle of the afternoon another clerk
was substituted. But at this time the
dmnken clerk's tally sheet showed
three more votes for Craig that, did the
tally sheet kept by tho sober clerK; and
the new clerk continued this error, so
that the returns from that precinct
showed a difference of three votes be
tween the ta ly sheets of the two clerks.
That these votes for Craiir were sim
ply the blunder of a dmnken man who
was tco mucn under the lniiucm-e ot
liquor to know what he ws doing was
beyond question; yet, in lnakiug his
returns to the Secretary of State, the
county clerk of Buchanan eounty count-
led tlieso tnreo votes lor umg.
I he returns wiueli havo been for
warded to the Secretary of State show
the majorities in tho . various counties
.to be a follows : -.
Ford's Majorities. Craig's 'Majorities.
, . .376 Buchanan.
...185 Clinton ..
...379 Gentry ...
That Mr, Ford was fairly and honest
ly elected wc have liot a'doubt; and the
way in which nu has been cheated ont
of a certificate of election is only one
more example of Democratic unscmpul
ousness.. . . .
In cases of this kind the law provide;
that there shall be a new election. Here
is the section of the Statues which bears
on the subject: .
Hevited Statues of Mistotiri; . section
6SH : 11 any two or more pcri-onx Jiave
an equal nnmbcr of votes for member of
congress, state senator, representative,
register ot lands, judge of tho. supreme
court, judge of the St. Louis court of
appeals, or any cirenlt conrt. court of
common pleas, criminal or prohatu court,.
circuit attorney or assistant circuit at
torney, and a highur'numbor than nn
other person, the governor.iusiich ca:,
shall issue his proclamation giving
netlce of such fact, and that nn election
will be held at the pl'aco-i of holding elec
tions for such officers, in which shall be
mentioned tho day of election, which
election shall be conducted and rcturud
agreeably to the provisions of law.
It is probable, therefore, that in a few
days the Governor will -order a new
election. Whether Ford and Craig will
again be candidates or whether either
will make the raco again, or what the
result of a new election will bo arc mere
matters of conjecture.

is a villainous plcca of busiijes, but
