That Great Mass Convention.
The greatest fizzle in the
shape of a convention ever
held in McArthur took place
last Saturday in the Court
Uouse. A quarter of columu
call for a Mass Convention had
appeared iu the Enquirer for a
month previous exhorting the
Liberal Republicans and Deni
ocrals to rally in masses and
select delegates to the Slate
Convention of office seekers
which met at Columbus yes
terday. The day and the hour
came, as did some half a dozen
of the managers, but the mass
es did not put in an appear
ance. They refused to organ
ize because there were more
Republicans than Democrats
in the room, and something
might happen if they were so
indiscreet as to vote. After
something over an hour's sor
rowlul joking over the corpse
of dead hopes, some person
made a motion to adjourn,
which was seconded by every
person breaking tor the door,
the Republicans laughing and
the Democrats swearing. Bow-
en, Be'iford and Claypoole re
lused to adjourn, and were
locked in, when they proceed
ed to 6elect themselves as del
egales, as far as they would
reach, when they kindly ad
milted their friends to Jill the
vacancies, carelully taking in
the whole"Liberal Republican':
