THE VINTON RECORD.
SacAKfUUR, OI1IO, TUVltSUAY, AUG; 10, 1871. Independent Candidate for Common Pleas Judge, HON. JOHN P. PLYLEY, HON. JOHN P. PLYLEY, The People's Choice. HON. JOHN P. PLYLEY, The People's Choice. Hon. John P. Plyley for Judge. la accordance with the wish eiof our people, aud oar own at well, we (his week announce the name of the lion. John P, Flyley as an independent can didate lor Judge of the Common Pleas Court of this sub-division of the 7th Judicial District. The considerations which in duce as to do so are partly set lorthin another article. The nomination made at Ports mouth was in whole a move ment of political managers, not seconded or 'demanded by the public, to deprive the people, for political considerations, oi one of the best Common Pleas Jadges in the State. It was conceived in malice, executed by fraud, and no honorable man can be bound to abide the nom ination. We hold fast to the principles of the Republican party, but we are as free to op pose any wrong in our own party as we are in the appsU tion. But Judge Plyley's throat is not the only one to be cut. Jn4ge Johnson's stands next. For year 8 there have been two as separate divisions in this sub division as though they were - fixed by law, one composed of Lawrence and Scioto or the river counties, and the other, Vinton, Jackson and Pike, or the upper counties. In case Mr. Harper should be elected the river counties would have two Judges and the upper coun ties none. In two years Judge Johnson's time expire:;, and then comes the demand for his place to be filled by an upper county man. There is no doubt this is to be the Second act iu the drama, and the people are to bejdeprived of two among the ablest Judges in the State to satisfy the cravings oi the clique. Against this pro gramme we propose to light to the end, confident that the peo ple are with us. The office is one which above all others should b9 kept free Of politics. Every man is in terested in getting a sound, unbiased man who will make his decisions without fear or prejudice. Property, liberty and even life itself at limes de pend upon the correctness of his judgment, hi3 ability, knowledge and integrity. That Judge Piyley has the necessary qualifications everybody ac knowledges. There is no de mand tor a change. Experi ments, at best, are both expen sive and dangerous. The Tubs Thrown to the Whales. When the Jackson county del egates discovered what the feel ing of the Vinton delegation was after the 3d of Au gust convention they threw out a very large tub; One of their number advised us with a smile that was childish and .bland, to keep cool; that they would nomi nate Judge Plyley for Congress next year. Generous manipula tors of Jackson! long may you wait for a bait fjr gudgeons. When they met with the peo ple of Jackson and rendered an account of their stewardship, the reception was warmer than they anticipated, and when they were denounced ior their bad faith, and deserting their own man and Plvley, throwing another Judge in the Biyer counties, and leav ing the npper counties without ny, the same oily wire-worker excused his action by saying that if elected Harper would move to Jackson county. Bah! an im ported Judge! Harper never said any inch stuff, no more than the gentleman . mentioned Plyley in connection with Congress in good faith. A. MAS named Vangundy fell .from the Paint Creek precipice, i : Chillicoth 'enictery, on Tuesday of last west,, and bt hii neck. THE PORTSMOUTH JUDICIAL CONVENTION. How Few Represented the Many. Scioto County En Masse in a Horn. It becomes our unpleasant duty to say this week that we will not support the gentleman placed in nomination by the Portsmouth Judicial Conven tion, nor will he be supported by the Republicans of this county. We reget this very much, for the relations existing between the nominee and our self have always been of the friendliest character. The con siderlions which compel our people to this action are num erous. Of course we feel a warm personal friendship for Judge Plyley, but we do not pin our faith to any man's coat sleeve. If J udge Plyley, had been defeated for the nomina tion" by fair and honorable meaus we should have acqui esced in the decision; but when political managers, "set up'' conventions tor the. purpose of doling out the offices of the district, and attempt to thwart the wiil of the people, in order to fix up their own dissensions, it is time ior the people to in terpose, and assert their inde pendence of the cliques which attempt to rule them and their party. Such a time is now up on us. The Portsmouth con vention was the boldest fraud ever attempted upon any peo pie, as we have abundant evi dence to provo conclusively. First, we have the action of tnoso who managed this affair on the nnrt of Jackson county forcing the convention at a time when three of the counties Lawrence, Viulon and Scioto were unprepared, and were looking to some day after Au gust 19th, the day of the meet ing of the Lawrenco county convention. Again, on arriv ing at Portsmouth we found that the Scioto county delegates were not selecled, and were in formed by a gentleman who knew whereof he spoke, that the ring had the thing all "set up" for Harper for the next day; that they were running the thing quietly; the hangers on were all notified to be on hand, and the exact programme was detailed to us, just as it was carried out the next day the selection of the chairman, his appointment of a committee ol three to select the delegates as if the convention was not capable ot selecting its own delegates etc. Outsiders were kept in blissful ignorance of every thing,and of a dozen busi ness men with whom we were acquainted, and called on the morning of the convention, not one of them had heard a whis per of Mr. Harper's candidacy. But to come to the Scioto county convention. Accord ing to programme previously arranged, at sharp 11 o'clock, the curtain arose upon this no table farce. U.E. Jones moved that Judge John Wilson act as chairman, and the supers re sponded "aye," in the most apt proved manner. A Secretary being a necessary and harmless appendage, Judge Thompson moved that N. W. Evans act as such, it being altogether prob able that Mr. Evnns had not received a permit to attend the convention, and the managers knowing him to be a noisy, little fellow, were afraid, if left on the floor where he would have a chance, ho might say something unauthorized, and thereby disconcert the supers. But the Chairman that is, the Judge, put the motion, and the supers again responded, "Aye." Now, arose Judge Searl, law partner of Mr. Harper, (Ports mouth is the worst place in the world for Judges we mean both in quality and quantity,) and spoke his piece: "I move that a committee of three be appointed to select delegates to the Judicial convention." The other Judge the Chair manput the question, and gain the supers responded in thunder tones. At this stags of performance) Ux. Qlover in-1 terrupted the play ty claiming tho floor and staling that that waj au unheard of way of doing business, that the convention wab competent to select its own delegates; that it had as sembled for that purpose, etc. The Judge the one that was chairman said the question was carried and Mr. (J. was out of order. Mr. Q. responded that he lasnotout of order; that the nays had not been called on the question. The Judge knew what he was put in the chair for, said the ques tion was carried, and the show must go on. And go on it did with the utmost expedition, for the managers were fearful of fresh arrivals oi citizens, who might interrupt the per formance. But Mr. G's inter ruption had disconcerted the Judge to such an extent that he forgot his "cue," and was forced to refer to a little slip of paper, with which the managers had kindly provided him, from which he read the names of Judge Searl, John A. Turley and John A. Royse, the previously arranged commit tee who would name the delegates to the convention. They retired and returned immediately with their report, previously pre pared. Some one of the Judges moved the adoption cf the re port and tho supers responded manfully. Some few men out side ol the ring protested against such a proceeding, but they were duly choked down, to make way for the regular performance. A few citizens common folks, not members of any clique were placed in the list of delegates to give ic respect ability, and they must be "se.t up," loo, else 6ome of them might be piesenl, and vote as they pleased, so JudgoThomp. son moved that the delegates be instructed to vote for Har per. This was carried by the tupers over the protest ot the outsiders, who were not politi cians, lacked a leader, and con tented themselves with protest ingand grumbling at the ap parent unfairness of the thing. Mr. J. F. To wellbud" staled pre vious to the vote being taken that if he couldn't go into the convention untrammeled, and allowed to voto as his judgment and conscience dictated he should decline to act in that capacity. One of the supers cried out that (hey could get some person who would. So the instructions went with a whirl and Mr. To well declined to act, much tothe gratification of the faction, who were glad to get rid of him. J. F. Towell is uot a 'representative" man of Scioto county, you knowl The supers were 1 They know just how the solid, respectable peo ple of that county feel. On the withdrawal of Mr. Towell JuJge(?)Cole moved that the delegates themselves supply any vacancy caused by absence or otherwise, but the .supers had not been advised how they were to vote, so no person voted at all and the. chair de cided the motion carried, whereupon the convention hav ing been gagged through in about ten minutes, adjourned, and wa3 followed immediately by the district convention. Judge J. Bowers Underwood was chosen chairman, and we were made . Secretary, for the same reason we presume that Evans bad been made Secretary of the Scioto county convention. The Pike county delegates offer ed the name of Geo. D. Cole; Jackson, W. K. Hastings; Scioto, J.J. Harper;. Lawrence, Judge Plyley of our county. The bal lot was called and Pike voted 5 for Cole and 1 for Plyley; Jack son, 9 for Hastings Scioto, 11 for Harper, Lawrence, 11 for Ply ley; "Vinton, 6 for Plyley. On the second ballot Jackson and Pike except John W. Corwine of the latter county without an attempt to nominate their men and without withdrawing their names, or consultation amop themselves or with any othir counties, ' and in violation of promise on the part of t nnm ber of the delegates to stick for an npper county man, dropped their candidates, without a vote, went for Harper, the job was done, the ring was temporarily successful, and the, dissensions of the Scioto county , political managers were at an end, wbeth er the people were etia6d or not. The Umb and the lion could lie down together, the sword, beaten into a pruning hook,' was already reaping the harvest, and the people good, easy souls were left to pay the laborers. Whether the bargain, Bale and transfer of Jackson and Pike counties was consummated when the delegates en mam visited Mr. Harper's office the morning of the convention, we are not pre pared to cay, but we do know that the Scioto managers have used Jackson's and Tike's dele gates to their own purpose, and to the weakening of the Republi can cause throughout the district. The whole thing is a bold appar ent fraud, will never be, and nev er should be endorsed by the peo ple. It may be asked why, if we knew the manner in which the Ju dicial Convention was "set up ' against Judge Plyley, his friends allowed his name to be present ed to tho Convention. For these reasons: To withdraw would hive been to acknowledge defeat; to go in was to meet defeat, but at the same time it would develop the trip to the eye of the public in such a way that they could not fail to recognize it. Besides the men of Jackson who had promii ed to stick for a man from one of the upper countieB although no person believed tbe promises when mado would have been able to say that we alone were re sponsible fur tho defeat of the people's choice. We did develop tho trap, we did show that the promises were not in good faith, the people can see the whole mat ter plainly, and the tricksters are commencing to hear from them. Ed. Wn.soN, of the Ironton Register, decline to have his name used us a candidate for State Senator. We are glad o! it; we have too much respect tor him to w ish him placed in a position, where he would get plenty of first rate abuse and poor pay. Then he makes a good paper and we should miss him from the editorial post. We hope he will stick to his declaration to decline the nom ination. Let some man take the nomination who won't be missed from the cornmuuity. Scioto Gazette. On the first page we publish an article from the same paper favoring the nomination of Capt. Jones. Put this ami that together and we consider it the best joke on Homer we have seen in au age. The returns lrom North Car olina indicate the positive de feat of the Constitutional Con vention (Democratic) party and the triumph of the Repub licans. Wake county, in which is the city of Raleigh, gives a Republican gain of 200; Hali fax county, 100; Mecklenburg county, 275, and New Hanover, 514. Dispatches also say that the Conventionists admit their defeat. ; Ex-Governor Uolden, has receivod many telegrams, and says he is confident that tjie Conventionists are defeat ed by about tea thousand ma jority. These Democratic statesmen ought for the sake of appear ances, to compare notes a lit tle. Morgan and his kind are charging that Grant is figuring to be Dictator. The New York World and its kind on the con trary, charge that he don't care a cent about the government, but leaves it in charge of a few clerks while he goes junketing to Long Branch. Col. Cosnell, in reply to a note from the State Democrat ic committer, declines to assist in canvassing the State this fall, for the reasons as he aver?, that the so called new depart ure is a transparent humbug. and that Gen, Ewing, and not Gen. McPook, wasjn fact the nominee of their convention for Governor, . . ' Tus Democracy of the Twentieth Ward of New York last week resolved that Lo gan, the policeman dismissed the force for refusing to resist the rioters, shall be elected to some office. : TnE Meigs County Republi can Convention . renominated Major S. N.Titus for Represen tative, and ' expressed their preference for Senator as fol lows: U. S. Uorton, 24 votes; 0. B. Chapman, 23; T. A. Welsh, 10. McCook addresses the De mocracy on the 16th, at McArthur. The Cincinnati Commercial says of his opening speech at Ashta bula, that it was a "failure a blunder.'' The Democracy are running him for governor, but the best authorities say that he never received the nomina tion. When Judge Wilson, who presided over the Republican County Convention on Thnrs- day, pulled out of his pocket the paper furnished him be forehand by the ring, and read c ff tbe names of the committee which was to select the dele gates to the Judicial Conven tion, the chief of the ring was heard to say he ought to have more sense and been able to remember the name?; it wasn't Qxed up by the revenue chaps; oh nol Portsmouth Times.
